more like nba all-star game impressive? >> it was not like nba it wa all-star game.ar people weren't getting out of the way. these were contested shots. sho and again, it was in a win. w they were down by 10 late in len the game and kobe was hitting ht big shots, contested bigontest shots. >> what people don't understand, if you've everyou' played basketball before,ed b especially in your late 30's, okay, it's hard to geto yourself in position to getoet open shots like that.ikeha or to drive the lanes againstst younger guys who are more athletic at this point in hiss t career.re that's why it's so impressive. s if he's 22 years old and he's ah putting up 50 shots, okay,ts oka well, i kind of expect thatect t but he's on -- he's got bad knees. he hasn't played 42 minutesut all year long, steve.teve. i'm sorry, if you don't think di that was a great performance, you don't know basketball. >> defenders are not gettingders out of the way. he was going up againstgast legitimate defenders.teen they weren't just saying, herear you go, kobe, have a layup, l have a dunk. he had to earn his 60 points.oi >> let's give him a clap
forgetting that 17th win. >> now, don't cheap pen it now i cakes. he just built it up.ust t it now you just cheapened theheapen whole thing. thing. >> different sides, differentfee opinions. >> jason i'm convinced. i you convinced me now.e n wisdom is going to be ae a different story. he's going to be tougher tong convince but you've t convincedi me now. one way or another it's as great sendoff.endo 60 points is impressive nossive matter if you're 22 or 40e 22 years old whatever you are on ae the nba court.the nba cour now what else is impressive isrv what the warriors have dones all season long.alseas they ran it again last night. n keep running right to the championship? how far is this? team going to go?te >> they're clearly the favorite to win the championship. they'll probably play the san ts antonio spurs in the westernsp conferenurce finals. fin the spurs beat them once this year so maybe the spurs can provide, you know, a tough a opponent and then they'll probably face the cavs in theac finals again and i would say wod they're clearly the favorite. t back to the kobe thing. the one thing is steph hit 10 3-pointers.ters nobody is saying steph curryh did it against the grizzlies gzz who don't have their bestir
nobody's saying that. sayg th they're going wow steph curry had t.e.n.s. 3-pointers.-point kobe scored 60. s >> the difference with curryife is he did it all year so he yeas was hitting seven, eight, nine, 10 3's against goodd teams without 10 day contractayn players.ers. >> the other thing with kobe oth just to touch on that quicklyuct and then we'll go back to the t warriors listen what he did he last night was epic 60 pointsc p in your final game we should all be so lucky to have ave sendoff like. that the problem is he's just j an unlikeable kind of guy. he's kind of hard to wrap youroy arms around.d. so, that's why maybe some guys e like cakes and i are kind ofind like eh whatever, it's kobe.s >> i saw lots of guys wrappingpg their arms around him when heimw came to play at the verizon v center a few months ago.s >> here's the thing with theth warriors. they now have the record with w 73 wins, another epic performance by steph curry ste c last night but if they don'ty dn win it all, it's all for a naught. >> it's a disappointment.s sapp >> it's the patriots. it's the o they have to win it all.t a >> real quick let's talk about the wizards.the wiz randy wittman a disappointmentpn this season but when you look atan
in d.c. as a whole, this was a w team who had not been to theee post season for many years, success for randy wittman as a whole not just this year or yeao not. >> i think so. i think at the end of the day e he took a franchise that wast floundering got them to theingo playoffs a few times and a started them in the rightm in r direction. there's no question about it.uet but i also think it was timeim to move on and we need some n new blood. we need some some fresh eyes. it would be nice if we had a new gm, too., >> randy said when he camean here this dyplace was a sideid show. he helped to change theeld to culture but after four and a half seasons they definitely dey needed to go in a neweded direction.dire i agree with eb.agwith eb. if you're getting rid of thef coach you have to get rid of rid the gm start fresh overall.eral. >> sounds mutual. we'll leave it there becausee we got to talk some hockey, too. us good to talk to you. enjoy the caps game tonight.onig talk to you tomorrow morning.ni >> you too, ma and. >> junks 106.7 f.m. the fan.he f >> i'm excited about thebout sports segment and you're notega talking about there caps.ou >> we're leaving it for you.t ei opening act and now you
