Listen: Lebron James, Lakers, Brian discussed on First and Last
"Basco? I n last the podcast. Man, not gonna lie when I sat here yesterday. And we started having a little bit of the Anthony Davis conversation going on. I thought oh, you know, that's understandable thing. Lebron's quote seemed tame enough seemed like it was going to be something that. Yeah. It might give us a little bit of a buzz. But how much can we really make out of? Oh, yeah. That'd be awesome. When someone asks LeBron James how be playing with Anthony Davis. That'd be like someone asked me. Mike, would you like Daniel? How would you like day? Jennifer Aniston like, oh, yeah. That'd be awesome. I don't see it as something realistic happening right now, we are to humans on earth who are both one point in time single like its theory possible. But ultimately, it's not something I think about happening in the here and now and then the world explodes because the minute someone like Brian win horse stands up and starts talking about Brian win horse are ESPN NBA insider known LeBron whisper and a guy who has followed him in every stop of the tour probably understands the way that this guy works better than almost anyone else. And for anyone who saw that LeBron James graphic of his net worth broken down on ESPN dot com. Yesterday, the way he is operated his worked pretty well to the tune of being worth almost eight hundred million dollars like whatever he's doing works. So when he does it and someone is capable is. Brian ports it out I'm inclined to listen now, the idea of Anthony Davis being acquired by the Lakers. This season is a recent development and one that I should not be shocked by because one of I stood up here really sat here because I'm never standing doing the show. That's preposterous. What have I sat up here and said for the longest time have I. I said over on golick a window. God knows how many days during the course of discussing. The Lakers is while everyone wanted to talk about this being a long term commitment for LeBron James, the hardest person you going to have selling that to once the bleep hit the fan was LeBron James LeBron James, the ultimate competitor was not going to be able to sit idly by and watch everything going on around him with a team that we know obviously, we all admitted himself included was not built to compete in the here. And now. But was going to get close enough. And I was laughed at when I said that the Lakers where a potential three or four Cedeno Western Conference. The Lakers are currently fourth in the Western Conference right now. And I get early December that doesn't mean a whole lot. But it means enough like it means old man in the vast scope of the Western Conference. Maybe things are a little more possible than we imagined. Brian win Horace pointed this out last night when he joined Spain and fits here on ESPN radio in his whole thing was look I made a four year commitment. I didn't do it for one year. But I think you know, we got through November and into December and the bras looking around the west going, you know, okay. The warriors are awesome. But there's not another team here that I don't think I can handle, and I think he's partially going if there's an opportunity here to do something, maybe we shouldn't even he talked about the conflict that he has had in his head about this how he's gone back and forth, and the best thing I can say, I know that the Lakers don't understand this. They will eventually get to get used to. This is there's there's a huge difference between sitting on his couch with a glass of wine talking about philosophy in July. Lebron and going on there. Every other night thing the competition looking at the standings December. Lebron those are just two different mentality versa.
