Yes these are wise, common sense opinions. However common sense is not in The Vivek and Luke Library,

Fox’s struggles, hmm, we all see it. Haliburton on the other hand has played well at times. He took over one of those games in the 3rd or 4th quarter with several consecutive buckets. He has been making plays for others. I wonder if part of it is Fox. Young player deferring to Fox, who is sort of playing 1 on 5 at times. In other words, maybe some of the responsibility falls on Fox to get his teammates going. Defensively I think Haliburton’s on-ball defense has improved since that Portland game. Not flawless but better.

Love the podcast. Wish it was more often. One bit of constructive criticism though, Will, I don’t know if it’s a mic issue, or if you just speak too low sometimes. Your sound goes up and down a lot but not the other guys.

Well since I can’t eat chips, I’ve resorted to marshmallows and trying to talk through a mouthful.

(It’s a new audio issue that isn’t coming through when we podcast but the final recording has it… I appreciate you and Andy and others bringing it up so I can hunt down what the heck it is!)

It’s a tire swing, but it was designed for podcasters!

I thought that was a really interesting perspective that Jerry brought up, that I had not considered, of the starting guards feeling the heat from the bench guards. They are all playing a lot, but a perspective worth considering.

It does seem like the comfort zone is not there with any of the guards ! Luke and the players all share in the problem and solution !

Luke Walton (seeing Doug Christie is about to jump up off the bench to congratulate the players at a timeout) jumps up off the bench to congratulate the players at a timeout.

Will, your audio game, much like your URL game, is an absolute no doubt about it F-. BOOOOOOOO-urns! Or something, grumble grumble grumble.

Great podcast, though, seriously. Yes Will, even you.
