Joe Shasky: Chris Mullen Is 1st Person On TV To Say Warriors’ Fight Is A Problem

“Mullen gives you authentic. There is no broadcaster BS when I hear him.”

A brand new NBA season tipped off on Tuesday night. The Golden State Warriors hosted the Los Angeles Lakers in the late game. What should have been a night of celebration was overshadowed by the fight earlier this month in practice between Jordan Poole and Draymond Green. Joe Shasky said Wednesday morning that it will be a story all year long.

He criticized TNT’s national broadcast for the way they talked about the fight. He said a fight between teammate in practice was treated like something that happens regularly.

That is not what Chris Mullen had to say on the NBC Sports Bay Area broadcast. Shasky found it refreshing that someone acknowledged the fanbase’s fear.

“Mullen gives you authentic,” he told his co-host Bonta Hill on 95.7 The Game’s Morning Roast. “There is no broadcaster BS when I hear him and he basically said ‘Does it happen? Yes. It’s few and far between,’ and I’m paraphrasing here ‘but it’s always a negative.’ And he’s the first person I’ve heard say that. People are trying to spin this into a positive. Bonta, it’s always a negative thing for everyone involved. That resonated with me.”

He said that the tension amongst the Warriors is clear right now even to the people watching at home. Hill, who was in the arena for the game, said that no fans booed Draymond Green when he received his championship ring, but his ovation was dwarfed by the ones many other players got.

Joe Shasky said this is the kind of thing that will happen all year. People are going to want to know what is happening in every huddle. They are going to overanalyze every player’s social media. It is a story that isn’t going away, particularly when the Warriors go on the road.

“For me, I just think that we’re doing too much trying to analyze reactions and people dapping each other up, but you’re right. B, it’s not gonna go away.”

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

“Be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
