He? He's in New York, holding it down on the board. Making sure that we can all rock and roll. This is the beginning of the show. Every single weekday at 6 p.m. Eastern, 3 Pacific. We got a few more games that have come out on the upcoming NFL schedule.

We got the big reveal tomorrow. We got OTAs all over the place in the NFL. I mean, even my Falcons are running around chatting right now. Kirk Cousins is like, everything is fine.

Michael Pinnix Jr., everything is fine. He's doing it on podcasts. He's doing it at press conferences. It's just any place that Kirk Cousins could tell you everything is fine.

He's he's going to tell you. Speaking of quarterbacks, Tom Brady already regretting the roast. Come on, man. Speaking of roast, the Dallas Mavericks, they got roasted last night. They didn't get roasted. They they choked. They were cooking and then they choked. Luka Doncic sucked.

I guess that knee and that ankle ain't holding up too well. The New York Knicks are going to be in action tonight against the Pacers. The Wolves are going to try to slow down their choke as they take on the Denver Nuggets. Aaron Rodgers getting tabbed for Monday Night Football.

Kaitlyn Clark, she's tabbed for her debut tonight in the WNBA. And then we also have some guests who are going to join us. You know, yesterday, Jared Goff got that big four year, two hundred and twelve million dollar contract extension. We're going to have on Dave Burkett from the Detroit Free Press. He's going to come through and chat it up with us about all the money that these Lions have been spending. And then we'll talk to Andrew Schlecht. He covers the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Yeah, the team that knocked off the Dallas Mavericks last night in a well, just let's just say made him choke. OK, so we got a lot to discuss, a lot to get into football, basketball, NBA, maybe an NHL story if one pops up that the whole country cares about. And we got you. Do you use the Internet?

Good. You can find me online. I am at JR Sport Brief.

And if you got yourself a smart speaker, just ask it to play the Infinity Sports Network. Hey, Hickey, how you doing, man? You good? I am good, JR. Thankfully, unlike Kirk Cousins, I'm not looking over to my right here and seeing anyone trying to take my job.

So job security is safe. I feel pretty good today. This is it's just real wild. Kirk Cousins had two chances and two opportunities to speak. He spoke at OTAs today here in Atlanta. This is his first time talking, saying anything public about Michael Pennix Junior, because before he spoke today, Kirk Cousins sat down to do a podcast.

That's what everybody does, right? Busting it with the boys. And before he sat around and he did his OTA press conference, Kirk Cousins wanted to let everybody know. Yeah, I know they selected Michael Pennix Junior at number eight overall, despite giving me all of this damn money, one hundred and eighty million bucks.

Kirk Cousins, he's still on the podcast. He's like, yeah, it's fine. I'm cool with it. Yeah, I think you you're reminded again that you there are things you control and there's a lot of things you don't control. And so let's deal in reality, you know, and recognize that fact and then be a steward, not an owner. So I just believe that I got a steward what comes my way and control what I can control, which what a steward does.

But a steward doesn't worry about that, which they can't control. Yeah. So it's fair to say Kirk Cousins, the Falcons, there's no there's no beef involved. No, I don't think there can be.

I don't think it's helpful. Like, we're trying to win a Super Bowl and it's hard enough. Like, you know what I mean?

Like, it's hard enough. So let's let's all be on the same page and let's try to go into Super Bowl. Who would want out of anybody to beef with anybody? Why would Kirk Cousins beef with anybody?

Why? This man has a one and four playoff record. This man just continues to get contract after contract after contract. Why would Kirk Cousins out of anybody given his success four time Pro Bowler?

That's all good and well. But when you think about all the money that this man has made in his career, all the tags with Washington, you know, the plan and coming out in the same draft as Kirk Cousins. I mean, what the hell is he beefing about? Two hundred eighty one million dollars.

He doesn't count the new money that he has coming in. Kirk Cousins should just be living smooth regardless of who they draft. And so that was the busting it with the boys podcast. Today, Kirk Cousins wanted to remind everybody in person. I'm used to quarterback competition.

I'm used to having other dudes. And the night that they drafted Michael Pennix Jr., I went about my night like nothing happened. Listen, I know it's pretty straightforward. I was at the team event at the stadium was just driving back and and they called me and just said, hey, we're going to take quarterback here at the pick. And I said, OK. And that was pretty straightforward. I think it's similar to the call that Mark Dantonio made to me in 2000.

That would have been 2007. He said, hey, we're going to offer another quarterback. I know you've signed Nick Foles. You guys are going to have to compete. And it's like, OK, you know, let's let's just take the next step. And then I was drafted right with Robert Griffin.

And I'd say, you know, you're going there with another quarterback in the same class. OK, so this is more this is more the norm than the exception. And I think the response is that this is the exception.

And really, if you know my story, this is more this is more the norm of the journey and it's more of, OK, you know, let's let's just start working and start building together. Come on now. Kirk Cousins is a good teammate. We heard the report via his agent that Kirk Cousins was shocked. Both could be true. Kirk Cousins could have been shocked that the Atlanta Falcons gave him all that money and selected a quarterback at number eight. And he could still be a good teammate.

Both can still exist. Do I expect Kirk Cousins to hold Michael Penny's junior's hand? Do I expect Kirk Cousins to give him a burp after he finishes bottle? Do I expect them to go to church together?

No, I don't. But Kirk Cousins is going to be professional. And what he just comes across is I just show up, I do my job and I leave and I make a lot of money while doing it. So God bless Kirk Cousins in that regard, because he's a pro. You got a lot of athletes who would have been complaining and whining. Hello, Aaron Rodgers.

Not this guy. He's going to show up. And if he is physically able, he's going to ball out for the Falcons. There's a lot of people who look at everything that took place with Kirk Cousins and the blown out Achilles and the fact that he's not going to be full set and full go until training camp. And they go, oh, safe. Then why did you give him all that money?

I don't give a damn what anybody says. Yes, it's a great idea to have a backup as a quarterback. But while you're going in all in on both buckets, we either sign a guy and go all in on him. Or you just go ahead and say, I'm going to go all in on panics and don't give somebody like like like Kirk all that money. It's like the Falcons are just shooting off all their bullets at one time and it's it's not necessary. You're doing too much too soon.

Yes, you're an NFL team. You have to worry about the now and you have to worry about the future. But you weren't a little bit too much about the future. You're a little too shell shocked because of some of the ridiculous decisions that you've made over the past few seasons. You're looking at holding on to Matt Ryan a little too long. You're looking at the exit of Matt Ryan.

And primarily he decided to exit because you started flirting with Deshaun Watson, who flirted with you and took more money from the Browns. Then you are left holding the bag. The bag was full of crap. The bag was full. Of a Heineke.

The bag was full of a Desmond Ritter. And so you overcompensated and you said, hey, let's get Kirk Cousins in here, even despite an injury. We got faith in him. And then you double down and you say, yeah, well, he may not work.

He might be old. I mean, this came out of Terry Fontano's mouth. We have a quarterback. Yeah, if everything goes great with Kirk, we don't see him for four or five years.

What? You drafted Michael Pennix Jr. at number eight overall. Probably the most ready quarterback in the entire draft. You drafted the man at number eight overall to sit him for four or five years.

That doesn't even align with the current contract structures for a rookie where you got to make your decision as to whether or not you want to extend him in year four or five. This could certainly work for the Falcons. It could. I know there's a segment of the fan base who maybe sat around and thought about it for a few days. There's a couple of folks who maybe changed their mind overnight.

And said, oh, yeah, this is good. We got we got a backup quarterback legitimate and it might work. And if it does, the Falcons are going to come across looking like geniuses. And there's going to be a segment of the fan base that goes, I told you so. And that could be all true. But I'll tell you this. Too risky.

Too risky. You go for the franchise quarterback, you try to help them now. It's been reported that one of the reasons that Kirk Cousins decided to move away from the Minnesota Vikings is because they ultimately were going to lean towards getting a quarterback.

Look at the irony there, right? He ends up signing a gigantic contract with the Atlanta Falcons and, well, they draft his potential replacement. You just heard Kirk Cousins.

It's a it's a hard knock life. But for all the jerks and crybabies that we have and sports that we have in life, for all of the Aaron Rodgers, who he threw a fit. He needed a shot of tequila when they drafted.

Oh, Jordan Love. When we got stories coming out about Justin Fields, a rookie, doesn't want to listen to Nick Foles, doesn't want to listen to Andy Dalton. We got all these damn crybabies with low emotional skills. Give Kirk Cousins some credit. He's not whining. He's not complaining.

He's showing up to work and he's going to do his job. And unless Michael Penix Jr. is going to take the job away. But Kirk Cousins earned it. I think the only thing that stops or slows down Kirk Cousins. Is if his Achilles doesn't work. That's it.

There's nothing else. I mean, we saw all of this last year. Some guy named Aaron Rodgers and his first start for the New York Jets. He went down a couple of years older than Kirk Cousins. But we know how brutal the NFL game can be. Kirk Cousins, for the majority of his career, he's he's been pretty durable. Nobody ages backwards. Nobody gets, quote unquote, better with age.

You can just try to go out there and maintain it. I think Kirk Cousins was a good look for the Falcons, but they just know how to screw things up. Congratulations, Kirk Cousins. Thank you for not being a crybaby.

Thank you for being a decent teammate. He could be upset, bewildered. He can be bothered and all of that. But he's just going to show up and do his job. That I appreciate. It's the JR Sportbree show here with you on the Infinity Sports Network.

Doing my job is what I'm going to do for approximately the next four hours. We got basketball action. We have NFL schedule release news. We have the debut of Kaitlyn Clark.

We got games that went on last night where teams like the Mavs are choking. We even got a new WNBA team with a brand new name. Yeah. Yeah. The Golden State Valkyries.

Hickey, is that what they are? Is that what they're official? The Golden State? Are they Golden State or California? What are they? Golden State?

The Valkyries. You nailed it. We're going to talk about that, too.

We got a lot to do. I want to get Hickey's thoughts on what I just said about Kirk Cousins on the other side of the break. Kirk Cousins, always happy-go-lucky. His teammates love him.

That's why they always put those chains around him and dance. They have a good time. They love Kirk Cousins. When we come back, we'll hear from Hickey and then also we're going to hear from another quarterback. The most successful quarterback of all time. Let's just say Tom Brady wasn't all that happy with his roast last week.

He has some regrets. OK, Tom Brady. We'll hear from Tom Brady on the other side of the break. We'll get some thoughts and opinions from super producer and the host, Ryan Hickey. Congratulations to you. Happy Tuesday. You're locked into the J.R. sport brief show on the Infinity Sports Network. The wait is over.

I love it. No, that's that's that's not true. Not true.

I'm here for peace and love and soul. You've never seen Soul Train before, right? Never.

I think you know the answer to that one already. Don Cornelius. Can't can't say I've even heard of Don before. You've heard of Soul Train, right?

Yes, yes, yes. OK. Don Cornelius is the founder and host of Soul Train. Oh, OK. OK. Yeah.

He was he was a black dude with the glasses and afro and he used to bring you love, peace and soul. That's what he said. All right. Now I got a name for the face. There we go. Thank you for educating me. Yeah. One day when you're just hanging out, nothing to do.

Just just go on YouTube and just search Soul Train. People might go, hey, Hickey, what the hell are you looking at? But tell them J.R. told you to research. There you go.

Research anyway. Right before we went to break, we talked about Kirk Cousins, the consummate professional, the excellent teammate. Said he got no problem with Michael Penix Jr. being there. This is just business as usual.

NFL is all about competition. Eat or be eaten. Kirk Cousins has no problem with what's going on around him, despite signing this massive deal.

One hundred and eighty million bucks. With the Falcons in a few seconds, I want you to hear from Tom Brady. He is kind of sad and likes. I'll explain why. A matter of fact, you'll hear from him. Hickey, what do you think about these words today by Kirk Cousins?

I. I believe I believe him in the sense that, like, I don't think he's another choice in terms of being OK with Michael Penix Jr.. Right. Like if he lets us bother him, that means his play is going to suffer because his focus is elsewhere and he's going to get benched for Michael Penix Jr.. And, you know, and that's like the quickest way to lose your job is by worrying about someone else if he just focuses on himself and says he's here. I can't do anything about it.

I got paid. Now my job going forward here is not to, you know. Sabotage, you know, his development, because that's also that a bigger story.

Maybe you're on the door, maybe your career is over if you're out there trying to make Michael Penix Jr. look bad. So it's like he only has one route to go on now that this move is made. It's to make the best of it, to talk publicly as well. Right.

To make the best of it, to kind of put any storylines to bed and play as well as he can. Because if not, he's going to be on the bench at some point. Right. Whether it's two years, whether it's like terrifying.

I said four years, I believe, when I see it. Right. But if he plays poorly, Jr., like he'll be on the bench maybe this year. So he's no other option but to go out there and play well.

Possibly. And the fan base here in Atlanta is not going to be forgiving. Do I expect the only way I see Kirk Cousins playing like, let's just say bad.

I don't want to push it all the way to trash. And yet he's going to have a stretch. Kirk Cousins is going to have a bad game.

It's inevitable. He's a human being and nobody goes out there and it is perfect. The fans down here are going to be screaming for Michael Penix Jr. the first time that there's any type of stretch. That's not going to do Kirk Cousins any good.

He's not going to have that that runway. There isn't some, you know, cheap veteran quarterback who's sitting behind Kirk Cousins to take over if we enter into Disasterville. They drafted a highly touted prospect, which with his own injury history, who just played in a national championship game, didn't play well in that game. But he's expected to be the most readymade starter. And so the fans here will be yelling for Kirk Cousins.

Excuse me for Michael Penix. If Kirk Cousins takes too many missteps and that part sucks. But I give I give Kirk credit and I always say this and it doesn't matter if it's football.

Doesn't matter if it's your job, my job, the next door neighbor's job, your spouse's job, your kids. You can always know what the hell is going on. Right. You want to know what's going on around you. If you got to start worrying about what other people are doing, I think that speaks more to you. OK, I think that speaks more to your confidence level. How you feel about what you do. You can control what you do.

Go ahead. Research, work, bust ass. Kirk Cousins can't go into a time machine and become young like Penix or younger. Kirk Cousins can't wake up and have an arm like Michael Penix Jr.. Kirk Cousins can only work with what the hell he got.

And part of that is actually being a good teammate to keep the peace and just work. Let people here in Atlanta, let the fans stir up the beef, let them stir up the controversy, let them stir up the quarterback chat. Penix just start. No cousin should start. This is this is just the warm up, folks. But let everybody else worry about that inside that quarterback room.

They should worry about nothing but themselves. Leave the beef and the you know what, stirring to everybody else. And speaking of stirring up, you know what? Last week, Netflix decided to host a roast of Tom Brady. Tom Brady was ripped to shreds when it comes to cheating, deflating footballs. His personal life was ripped to shreds. They made jokes about his wife leaving him. They made jokes about his wife having an affair on the way out the door, allegedly.

I mean, we talked about this to Hickey last week. The the Aaron Hernandez jokes were just I get it. It's a roast, but they were cringe. Tom Brady sat there and I mean, he even got up at one point and he told Jeff Ross, the comedian. No more massage jokes when it comes down to Robert Kraft, the owner of the Patriots. It was a wild affair. And so Tom Brady recently sat down with the pivot podcast. And Tom Brady said, yeah, I do have some regrets sitting down and doing that roast and just listen to him. I loved when the jokes were about me.

I thought they were so fun. I didn't like the way that affected my kids. So it's the hardest part about like the bittersweet aspect of when you do something that you think is one way. And then all of a sudden you realize I wouldn't do that again because of the way that affected actually the people that I care about the most in the world. So like it's it makes you in some ways a better parent going through it, because, again, you don't sometimes you're naive.

You don't know. I just want to like laugh. And so I wanted to do the roast because the guy Jeff Ross became someone that I knew. And then I you know, you just you don't see the full picture all the time. So I think that it's a good lesson.

Like for me as a parent, I'm going to be a better parent as I go forward because of it. He didn't he and I'm sure he didn't know the exact jokes, but come on. He think he could get roasted by he talked about Jeff Ross. I am not some guy big into comedy. OK, I don't know every single comedian. I know who Jeff Ross is. I've only seen him do roasts. I've never seen and I'm not a big movie guy. I've never seen this guy, Jeff Ross and a film. The only time I have seen this man is up on a stage saying the most disrespectful things to another human being. And I can remember this from as far back.

It feels like 20 plus years now. So where the hell is Tom Brady been under a rock? Tom Brady agreed to do a roast and he didn't think that they were going to make jokes about his wife. And yet affected him. But of course, they got kids.

What is Tom? Come on now. They made jokes. About Rob Gronkowski being stupid. They made a joke at one point. Where where Tom Brady was asked, hey, how did you lose, you know, millions of dollars in a crypto scheme? Even Rob Gronkowski knows, oh, that's not real money. Like, come on. They made a joke about Rob Gronkowski being stupid. Tom Brady didn't know that being made fun of in a public setting would not affect his kids.

The last time I looked, his kids, I think the oldest ones, they got to be teenagers, late teenagers. Like, come on now. Who wants to hear a story about how mom, you know, left dad to hang out with the jujitsu instructor? Nobody wants to hear that. No matter if you're Tom Brady or, you know, she's hanging out with the UPS man.

Shout out to all the UPS drivers out there taking care of business. Hickey, is Tom Brady stupid? Very much so. I mean, what else did you think that they were going to roast you about?

True blood. So I think the next day or the day after that said the guy won everything. Like, you can't roast about any on the field accomplishments. What was he expecting people to make fun of him for?

I don't know. Call him a cheater. Yeah, you got him there. You're a cheater. Eli Manning beat you twice. You lost to Nick Foles.

Your ACL got blown out. You threw to a guy where we know that tight end guy. You didn't.

You went perfect and then Eli beat you. I know I mentioned that twice now. I mean, you got a good point. What the hell else is this? Nothing to do about it.

What are you going to do? Not professional comedians out. You hired them or brought them in, whatever, to make fun of you. Like the jokes you just outlined. No one's laughing at them.

No one cares about, oh, you lost Eli. Really funny. Ha ha ha. You get like the reason aren't roast supposed to be about the truth somewhat. And that's why they're funny.

I thought they were supposed to dig deep and hurt. Right. I mean, this is a grown ass man with kids.

You wouldn't think that anything that happens to you isn't going to affect the kids. Look, Tom Brady is what? What is he now? Forty six, forty seven years old. Forty eight, maybe. Forty eight. If it's a yeah, maybe if it took him this long, he's forty six. He's going to be forty seven in August.

If it took Tom Brady all this long. Hickey, I'm thinking something. I'm trying to figure out if I want to say it. Oh, I'm going to say it.

OK, I'm ready. If it took in Marco, is Marco Belletti here? He's here.

I'm here, man. If it took Tom Brady forty seven years to realize things that affect him publicly. Can also affect the kids. I can totally understand why his wife was like, hey, I'm out. I mean, that's just like with the rumors and the reports say that she left because the guy didn't want to stay home. All he wanted to do was football. It's like, hey, come be a dad, come stay at home. And when you hear something like that from from Tom Brady, he's like, I learned a lesson. It's like, well, yes, man, you're Tom Brady. You're not you're not Tom the postman. You're not Tom the police officer. You're one of the most famous Tom's on earth. You're Tom Brady. And now what is he going to do when he debuts on Fox later this year and people start saying that? Hey, Tom Brady, like you suck at broadcasting. What is he going to do? He's going to quit because they're going to hurt his kids feelings because his kids on Twitter.

I mean, I don't know. I'm a I'm a little disappointed that I'm not disappointed. Marco, I'm shocked that he sat there and I didn't know this was learned. I did this hurt my kids. They said terrible, mean, nasty things like, yeah, bro, we knew this. You know, it shows you the the vacuum that some people live in that are you would think that they would understand the magnitude of everything that's going on around.

And how big of a star they are. But you realize that they're really insulated in this little bubble and they don't get it. And sometimes things like this needs to slap him in the face. And it makes you really, truly wonder what didn't you think your kids would hear?

The whole world would hear it. They missed it. What were you think? So basically what you're telling me is you never thought of your children ever. Oh, damn. It never crossed your mind. Oh, damn. You took it. Whoa. I thought I said I thought I said crazy by saying, hey, maybe this is why the Giselle was like, I'm out, maybe. But you.

Wow. Look, man, if you if that didn't cross your mind, that means that your kids feelings were never in your head. That's basically what it is now that it doesn't mean it's malicious. It means it's you just didn't think of it. That's not an excuse, but that's what it is. So maybe you did learn a lesson. But sorry, that's not a lesson you should have learned. You should have known that by now. Hickey, you want to jump on board this this train? I give Marco a lot of credit for saying it. And, you know, thinking it.

No, I mean, you're not wrong. There's no other reason. There's nothing else that you could tell me. I took the money unless you're telling me afterwards that you were saying, oh, I didn't realize. But you knew you just want the money anyway. Then, OK. But if you're truly telling me that you never realized that this would affect your children, that means that your children's feelings or your children are just not in your head. They're not a thought process for you.

You think about you and you don't think about them. That's what Giselle said. Allegedly. That's what she that's what I read in people, because I read people every day.

Not really. Only when it's about Tom Brady. It's it like who else pops in people? LeBron is not even in people. Tom Brady's in people. Andrew Reese is in people.

That's when I read People magazine. Anyway, I agree. I hope his family got thick skin because if he ain't the you know what at the end of the year in the in the booth and there's going to be criticism, even if he is good. It's just welcome to the other side of football, Tom Brady. Welcome to life. Everybody's criticized. Welcome to the real world, at least the Internet. It's the J.R. sport re-show here with you on the Infinity Sports Network.

Anyway, it is the J.R. Sport Brief Show here with you on the Infinity Sports Network. We talked about Kirk Cousins. He's like, yeah, everything is fine here in Atlanta. Yeah, they drafted Michael Penix Jr. Everything is fine. We talked about Tom Brady. Tom Brady said they roasted me last week on Netflix.

Everything is not fine. Last night, if you watched basketball late. If you tuned in. And you saw the Dallas Mavericks choke away a victory against this young Oklahoma City Thunder team.

You would also see someone who got roasted. You saw an entire team get roasted. The Mavs choked.

They did. The Mavs blew a 14-point lead last night. The Oklahoma City Thunder, they beat the Mavs 100 to 96. The Mavericks blew a chance at going up 3-1 in this series.

It's currently tied at 2-1. Shay Gilgas Alexander carried his squad. Carried the Thunder on his back at the end of the game.

34 points. He's knocking down all these mid-range jump shots. He was getting busy. They could not stop him. All of a sudden, the Mavs got to the second half and they lost it.

You know what? They lost their mojo. They couldn't throw a rock into the ocean. I mean, the Dallas Mavericks could not even hit free throws. Luka Doncic missing late at the line. Almost costing them the game a chance to tie it up. The Mavs overall shot 12 of 23 from the free throw line. There's not a damn thing free about the free throw line when you're shooting less than 50%.

About 50. That's garbage. Meanwhile, Oklahoma City, they knocked down 23 of 24 shots.

It's terrible. Luka Doncic, 6 of 20 from the field. 18 points. He had a triple-double, but who cares when you lose and miss free throws? Kyrie Irving.

Did the Monstars come down and take his powers? Kyrie Irving had 9 points. Yeah, Kyrie Irving, who's hit one of the biggest shots that we've ever seen in NBA history for the Cavaliers. Kyrie Irving. 9 points?

This is awful. Jason Kidd, thinking about all these free throws that they missed, 12 of 23. Jason Kidd is just like, yeah, we can't do nothing about free throws. These are pros. They're not machines. They practice their free throws.

They practice putting on their uniform. And so it's just about being able to step up. You're going to make some, you're going to miss some. No one's ever shot 100% from the free throw line.

No one's ever done that. You only have some bad games, right? I will say this. I think that there are some players that if they actually took time to just stand around and shoot free throws all day, I think they'd actually get better at it.

Unless mind over matter just destroys them. Hickey, when Ben Simmons, when he's playing basketball or even practicing, when Ben Simmons is in the gym, do you think Ben Simmons is knocking down, let's just say, 80% of his free throws by himself? Yes. You think it's all in between his ears?

Absolutely. Giannis Atetokounmpo, you put him at the free throw line. Some days he might be, I don't know, 8 for 16 and another day he might be 14 for 16.

All between his ears? Mostly with him, yes. Do you think these poor free throw shooters, do you think they actually put in the work in the summertime or they just go, man, I'm a millionaire.

I make millions and millions and millions. I'm not standing here in the gym for, let's just say, two hours a day, one hour a day just doing free throws. They're not doing that, right?

No. I would agree. I would say that's probably the least work done, if you want to call it skill, part of their game. I would say that's probably the area they work on the least for sure. Yeah, it's amazing how many guys can't hit a free throw. And I think part of it is, A, practice.

Look at how much money these guys make, right? Shaquille O'Neal is like a 50, 60% free throw shooter. This man was one of the most dominant players ever. He didn't make no free throws.

It's wild. Jason Kidd is right to an effect, but I also think if any menial player who's a mediocre free throw shooter, if he actually worked at it over the summer, he'd be good. But who wants to stand at a free throw line for an hour just practicing free throws?

I think the answer is nobody. Damn it, maybe Kobe didn't even do it. I don't think he needed to. Anyway, Jason Kidd is like, our guys are pros. Luka Doncic, she ain't worried about nothing either. Listen to Luka.

No concern. We just got to be ready. We got to play hard like we did tonight. I think we played really hard.

Big energy today. But like I said, some details cost us the game, and we just got to be ready again. Obviously it's going to be hard on the road, but we've done it before.

We can do it again. No concern? No concern?

Luka Doncic is running around with a bum knee and a bum ankle. There's no concern? You, hobbled, just shot six of 20 from the field.

You led the NBA in scoring about 34, 35 a game. No concern? Come on. If there's no concern, then your leg is fine, right? Your knee is fine, your ankle. There has to be concern. You just had a chance to go up 3-1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Now it's 2-2 because you blew a lead. No concern? I don't know. Maybe the fans in Dallas can deal with it, but that's a little too lackadaisical for me. Hey, what's your level of concern?

Well, my level of concern, it doesn't matter. We got to go out there and play better. Just say something like that.

That sounds better. We failed. I'm not having concern. There's things that we have to fix. We have to knock down our free throws.

We have to come back and play better. That's it, man. I'm sure after that conversation Luca just went back and maybe had a cigarette and played video games. I saw that clip that went viral of him playing against some kid in his bedroom on the video game.

I have to clarify that. Anyway, Shay Gilgas-Alexander, MVP candidate, came in at number two behind Nikolai Jokic. He doesn't have no level of concern because he talked about how they bounced back, came from behind to beat those Mavs.

This is what he said on TNT last night. We just plugged away, took it possession by possession, and eventually the game turned for us. We've been in the situation a lot. We've been down, been in our double digits. We lead the league in double digit comebacks.

We've been there before and we just knew what it took and we got it done tonight. Hickey, every time that Shay Gilgas-Alexander talks, it's like he has a whole... He's got backup. His whole teammates, they're like bouncers. They're all standing around.

I mean, what gifts? This is support, right? They like each other? Oh, yeah. It's like a college team. They're all together. Maybe I missed it or just haven't been paying attention. Did it look like the whole team was there yesterday? I feel like the whole team has been... If Shay Gilgas... Oh, so here's a couple of things. Nobody wants to talk to anybody outside of Shay Gilgas-Alexander and Chet Holmgren, right? Am I accurate in saying that?

You're a hundred percent right. Nobody else wants to talk to anybody. Those are the only two that I've seen people talk to. Even Jalen Williams, who's a damn good player in the starting lineup. Undesized defender, undersized forward. Nobody wants to talk to him.

I don't know what he sounds like. They have huddled like four and five and six at a time for every postgame interview all season long. I can never remember seeing this, ever. When Michael Jordan spoke after a game, Scottie Pippen was not next to him, holding hands with Dennis Rodman, talking about how great of a job they did. But this is cool. I don't know. I mean, for all the idiots that we have on teams that hate each other, can't stand each other's guts, they're jealous. You know what? This is a teammate hour, right? We started off by talking about Kirk Cousins.

Kirk Cousins is like, hey, Michael Penix Jr. is here and we're going to get along. Fine. Fine. We end this hour by talking about the Oklahoma City Thunder.

So you know what, Hickey? I think we have to appreciate this when we have it in front of us. Because too often than not, we just get miserable athletes. We get the Rogers of the world. We get the Durant's of the world. Am I missing anybody else miserable?

A lot of people miserable, but I think those two are at the top. I like those two answers. Yeah. And shout outs to good teammates. And shout outs to you if you're a good teammate.

Yeah, you listening. Try your best at work. Try your best not to be a jerk. I know you have that one coworker or two coworkers or that one manager that you can't stand. But just get the money.

Just get the money and leave the drama alone. Ignore them. That's some JR wisdom for you. Be like Kirk Cousins.

Ignore them. It's the JR sport re-show here with you on the Infinity Sports Network. If you want to talk to me, it's simple. 855-212-4227.

That's 855-212-4227. Speaking of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Andrew Schlecht is going to join us in about 30 minutes to talk about these Thunder. And why the hell they get along so well? I guess it's because they're young. They're playing Fortnite together or Roblox.

I have no idea. And then also on the other side of the break, there was another basketball game. LeBron James showed up and people have lost their minds. We'll talk about it.
