Listen: Lakers, Clippers, Zion Williamson discussed on Highly Questionable
"Martinez in two thousand four and they say that the Yankees were code his daddy and the tip a cartoon series the Red Sox came back and won and they won the world series a long term problem or not is already a bad path for him nobody wants to see this continue to happen and yes I'd be you worry if I were the Pelicans yeah I think is to look at a couple of things first of all him sitting out in Summer League that was more precautionary than anything a lot of people bring that up as an injury suffered professional but all he did was really bang needs the real story here is that they're going with the six to eight we prognosis which means that was a minute that means was a removal of the meniscus I can't pronounce the word because I'm not very good with Latin but the point is that means that there is some risk down the line years from now of osteoarthritis of maybe system helping but those can be prevented by a lot of corrective exercises and fixing his bio mechanics which is which is a big thing and the good news here on is that the team he plays for employs the best training staff in the league that's Aaron Nelson and Tom May set the came over from Phoenix they bought the train to New Orleans and that's going to be huge for him in his recovery and moving forward but here's the thing just last week I was asked via email from Espn Dot Com people will Zion Williamson break the rookie punk record and now we're talking about bio mechanics and learning how to run all over again this is the worst case scenario for people who want to see a smooth career beginning for Zion in the worst-case scenarios he misses entire by the way there was another big injury update today Klay Thompson Steve Kerr said will not play this season at least he doesn't expect it if you look at the timeline from when he actually got injured even if he does come back and say a reasonable amount which is nine months you're looking at April first so the idea of bringing him in right before the playoffs doesn't seem like a wife situation you combine Klay Thompson probably missing the entire season and Zion Williamson's if he start to the season those are a couple of teams that you can bittered maybe as playoff teams it's kind of open the door for other teams maybe like a Dallas to slide in worries concerning right 'cause I dare I say with a little reckless speculation less competent going into this year than they probably were a few weeks ago. So you're saying the knicks have a chance nobody said anything about the Knicks is tonight the first of eighty two regular season Games is the day meaningful game between the Lakers clippers sounds like a leading question yeah so the first game tonight Raptors Pelicans lost some interest there obviously because Zion won't be play but the clippers and Lakers late game and doesn't mean a lot here's what find interesting and you heard a little bit of this on Espn daily this morning with Mina kimes and Ramona shelburne narrative of Leonard being the villain in La the Lakers mm to believe that he played them and really was working his way to the clippers the entire time and keeping the Lakers from signing other free agents and that has made Laker fans easy in Los Angeles and of course that is still a Lakers town coli Leonard getting booed at a dodger game is all you need to know about how intense Lakers fan feel about him joining the clippers in that sense setting that narrative right off the bat for this NBA season absolutely a meaningful game wild because the Lakers I had to wait in case I would say yes to them there's a good reason why he's worth the wait but whenever you wait there's always a risk and in this case the risk was every other meaningful free agent that the would've gotten there would have been better compliments. Ad Lebron are now gone off the market so the big question was was quite really a slow decision maker or did he do it on purpose to savvy stars the Lakers and make them the weaker team in town and the reality is we don't know we don't care because basketball is back but here's the thing is these two teams both won't feature an injury Kaku for the Lakers and Paul George for the clippers not everyone will play but even if those guys are healthy what we see today will be completely different from what we see in April may June from these teams the style of play the personnel who are in the rotation a lot of things are going to change because guess what it's a lot of new faces and they've got the best players for them what makes this extra interesting is because it's one of two games everybody's going to have an opinion on this tomorrow and going into the game going into the season you've got most people depending on the Lakers to win a championship that kind of flies in the face of what the experts are saying delete defense isn't strong enough that's the thing that I really have question marks about even if a Kaku like he doesn't really help them in that regard the clippers I feel just a little bit more complete now but even with you if you go to the bathroom or something but even with without Paul George with does MJ Celica Salty. Oh man what he says Steph Curry is in the hall of Famer yet well Michael Jordan Houston and not say anything and it's probably for reasons like this because anything you say will get you embroiled in controversy and he was interviewed on NBC and he was asked about the four players he would want to with all time and here's what he said if you could pick for guys for you pick up team for guys that you play anybody else with key allies want Magic Johnson Scottie Pippen in James Worthy that was six years ago that's happened in the league and six years would you keep the same phone in a heartbeat and I'm going into trenches I played against and with all these guys I'm going with who I know every single night responsibility to go out there and represent greatness every single basques and steph curry shouldn't be offended when he watches I hope not he's still a great player not a hall of fame yet though what are we cheer leading to Steph Curry not being as good as everybody thinks well here's the thing you just gotTa understand the way Michael Jordan is answering this question he's not answering hey who are the four best players in the history of basketball do you want to play next to them no he's asking who he wants to play with he wants to play with guys he knows guys he's fought against and yes it is L. Michael Jordan so he's going to sort of downplay a guy who offensively is being spoken of as a better player than Michael Jordan but in terms of the hall of Famer not yet I mean that's awesome antics I think he's just playing a game right there you know who I hate I hate the Internet I hate twitter I hate everyone who's out he's not talking about it from the standpoint of Willa guy ever get to the hall of fame he's saying right now he's not all you want to listen to other guys who are not hall of famers right now Tim Duncan Hall of Famer Cobras Not all of Famer Lebron James is not a hall of Famer he's not all why because they hadn't crossed the threshold aspirin bill and all you dolts on Internet y'all took the bait and ran with it created headlines and then painted at it which is really a feat when you can type of a headline and Simultaneously Oh my goodness everyone calmed down but the big question years the today show happens in the morning those guys are drinking that early in the one I think was in those glass in serious liquor natsume coming up next on myself. TV Show I mean it looked like he grabbed everything in his gym and said Hey let me of course out of this and see what I can do I haven't seen those reports like three years I would have forgotten what to do now hey thanks for listening to laughter permitted we are excited to have ally as our sponsor because they are all about providing top notch service to its customers and just like we want to deliver some content on this podcast ally is relentless and providing the best banking experience a can for its customers linen I are custom ourselves Lynn what do you like about banking without lie I haven't ally bank savings account and was attracted to the competitive rate I also like that I've asked just a twenty four seven customer care and can talk to a real person if I have any issues or need help it's so refreshing to speak to an actual person feels like I'm getting five star service which is what we all want really I mean who's a fan of two star restaurants or to start anything I'm actually partial before I myself but let's get serious party people ally obsesses over customer care and doing right by you so go to ally dot com that's A. L. why dot com ally bank member. FDIC time to play the game that the captain now do you question La right you give do you question that this move on as scouts Hello Ball has already worked his way into top three conversation in next year's NBA draft he's playing in Australia in the National Basketball League and he had quite the play sure if this was yesterday or the day before but look at that behind the back another behind the back now he is averaging twelve six and six and twelve points on thirty express and shooting is probably more to look at them this actual pass here when you've got this type of feel for the game I think you can go ahead and teach shot selection can you not I mean I think the thing to remember he's an eighteen year old playing in the League of grown men and that's no small feat twelve six and six is really big for him and I think the big way here is when you look at Lamelo and his older brother Lonzo how much better they seem to play outside of the circus of the big baller brand environment created by the a father when they're able to receive coaching and not have someone at home tell them not to listen that coaching not the bottom sticking to a game plan and trying to fit into a team scenario ask do you question if the kid the white undershirt deserves assist we're going to some youth basketball here but I'm just going to St right right here being critical of the coach any coach allows players to wear white undershirt under their jerseys. You're doing wrong by that kid but let's see what this kid did camera was let's see that again referee action this is like a referee model this is an actual look at that I mean it's the perfect smile I'll tell you and that's what hard I'm GonNa Westbrook this year all time great athlete no it's not going to be an image of STU gods here it's going to be a gentleman who tried something two hundred thirty two times at least he said someone is instagram feed Board well I mean are you jealous look at his guy this is absolutely world class how many days do you think it takes to try two hundred and thirty two times he can't do that all in the same day right now it's two hundred thirty two days probably none reports three years this is I would have forgotten what to do by now and doesn't always go that well let's it this is usually from American Ninja Warrior. I don't think I can do it."
