Listen: Lakers, Carmelo Anthony And Lebron discussed on Gallant at Night
"I'm hearing that the this it just never ends the Lakers drama. I mean, I can't get enough of it. I guess 'cause I mean, I was talking about it all night last night one night about them blaming a magic and who else. Durant? Then Kobe everybody said something to say about LeBron the amount of guys just lighting everyone leading the Lakers in everything. Winning games forum and everything else. And that he's got the ball too much. He's using the ball too much. Everything goes to him too, much and the Lakers are becoming the Cavs too, much and all this other nonsense, and they did they not get this guy to just flat out win. I mean, what they got to win is obviously is for something much bigger merchandise ticket sales Hollywood movies TV shows red carpet fame, primetime games. That's probably why they got him. Right. So they're on TV every night. Right for their business model, but this one here today, this one tops the keg, doesn't it? Are you seeing that said they want mellow? He wants mellow on the team. Now, of course, he does LeBron wants the Lakers to sign mellow for the rest of the season. Did that not just tragically hip, and the rockets the last one just just a disaster? Right. And then all of these member when they didn't they try to do with weight and him and in Cleveland. That didn't work either. This is like the banana boat club here that they're trying to pull off again. Right 'cause Wade CB three LeBron mellow mellower all best buddies. Right. So now, he's unemployed 'cause the rockets dumped his ass, and he wants his buddy to have a gag who've been. And he wants it to be with the Lakers. Jeez. Then it seemed like the last thing they need right now is Carmelo Anthony to screw up that young team honestly with his isolation ball. What are they gonna bring him in for ten minutes a game to jump threes? Are they gonna bring him in for five minutes to miss threes? Is he not finished? Did they not just see what happened in Houston? I mean, honestly who can explain this to me? I don't get it. He CB three even said at one point holidays, lamb biased. He's not just a teammate, a friend. That's my family. I just want him to be happy. I want him to get a chance to do. I know how much he loves new. That's all he wants to do is soup, blah, blah, blah, who cares? It's going to be clear in the coming days. If there's a market for Anthony still in L A or elsewhere. Everyone's I'm seeing this story out of the athletic. Lebron really wants it might not matter. Magic should fight him on it. I know I would this is according to some big suit in the league that would not want Carmelo Anthony on that team, and that LeBron's going to get his way unless magic opposes it and fights it and the last guy they're gonna ask for an opinion on this is not the GM now with the Lakers, the young new GM. It's not and it's not Luke Walton. I mean, Luke Walton does he have any say at all? I mean, honestly on the Lakers besides less than zero. Is he not like the last person they go to for anything at this point? It really is funny and that how he's got no juice. I mean at this point he looks like a guy that just is lucky to have the job. He's lucky. He's even the coach, you know that won't last either. Right. Like, do you get this feeling like that's just a short term stopgap thing with Luke Walton there? It's only a matter of time or do you think they're going to ride it out with Luke Walton and keep him as their head coach because I think like after a while. You know, if they don't get to the NBA finals, like let's say, I believe this year, if they don't get there this year and believe it or not right away year one they'll fire him and get someone that they believe will take them to the NBA finals, but it's not about coaching. It's about LeBron. And it's not about Mallow. He to help them do anything. They can't possibly expect that guy to get to the NBA finals this year. They cannot that cannot be the bar. That's what they are. They are expecting it. Because they they're stupid them. They think they have a chance with you know, Denver and the clippers and oak city, they think they have is every bit. Even Luke Walton said it didn't he we can win a championship with this unit. That was famous last words he should have never put his foot in his mouth, basically right there because he's saying they can win at all with what he has right now. They don't need another Blair. They don't need Anthony Davis. And they certainly don't need Carmelo Anthony. But are you going to be surprised at all? If they go get Carmelo Anthony. I won't be shocked. Well, they already went and got Tyson Chandler. They did that in five minutes tonight. So you wouldn't be off they go get him. Not not one bit. So do you think that that's what they're gonna do is bring mellow there in his final swan song because he's already had it. He's not doing anything else. Wow. That's crazy. I mean, is it not crazy? So he can't be traded until December fifteen because he signed his a free agent he offseason at the rockets wave them the Lakers would need to dumb one of their players to make room for him. Otherwise the Lakers. Good move. Anthony, a minor trade involving a player like, Michael Beasley that sign is a free agent in LA for three and a half million are struggling to crack the rotation. But. Yeah. That's what they gotta do another factor that if they get him in a trade, it would mean that none of his salary council. Houston's luxury tax. So it's an ownership would save around two point six million on the tax Bill alone. God. Can you believe there's still even a conversation? Let alone a market for this guy. After what happened in Houston? Even in oak city. Another thing. I've had this conversation with you before on the show about these guys. What they look like in the NFL. Did you see Justin Brown like Dustin Brown? Yes. Can you even believe how he looks like I don't even know that guy. What what happened his face like what did he leave his face behind for years ago? He's been through a lot. Mean why haven't the Dustin Brown's face? I mean, honestly can someone explain it to me that's not even Dustin Brown on the kings? That's not him at all. I remember when he looked completely different. What happened to that? Guy. Coupled too. Many pots did a face. I mean, Jesus, dude. Kyle in South Carolina, you're on CBS sports radio for Royal draft. Can we get him a cold fresh CJ? With the Lakers wanna bring Carmelo there. What would that mean? What would I do? I mean, they got they got they got all these guys on there that are really sort show, a blonde jokes. Actually right now. I mean who would've thought there? The pieces are there to make a playoff run and? I mean, there won't be Golden State. No one will. But what listen at least at least Lonzo ball is young and athletic, right? And he can run any capacity. Can certainly, you know, fill the hole and run the break. I mean, the guy getting definitely flat out dissed the rock and get into the transition game. I like him on the floor way better that literally way better than I would all washed up Carmelo Anthony trailing the play Jack and threes from thirty feet. I mean seriously at least ball knows how to get the rock. And then, you know, get some space and get rid of it and find the right guy cutting down the alley to make a bucket. Mellowed undo that he doesn't pass he didn't do anything anymore besides shoot and miss. I why can't people just accept the fact that he's finished. It's amazing to me how they wanna keep giving this guy jobs every like literally in every NBA city. Right. Like, I mean, the only team like I said this before right? Like, I could see him on that would help the team. It'd be Memphis. I don't you know what I mean? Like, I think he could actually because that team is about I think you saw and Mike Conley et cetera. If they add that guy just standing on the wing just literally standing there, and no one guarding him because no one's going to guard him, then just let him shoot threes from the wing. I think he could actually help Memphis. But I think he you know, it's like putting a spare tire on the Lakers driving a fancy Jaguar or something. You know, what I mean, they're driving a fancy sports car? And they got a spare tire on it in the back. You know what I mean? 'cause he's like to me. He's a drag on their youth and their offense, which I think is high energy and by fast ball movement. Right. They're trying to move it around. Everybody's they don't like the fact that LeBron's the point. Right. He really is without Rondo, and they're not letting Lonzo be the point, you know, letting LeBron run the offense, right? But it is moving the ball around quickly and getting a look and taken it. Right. So if you have all these young guys that can run and gun and fill it up and move the ball quickly and everything else. What's it gonna do to it to put in that old stagnant mellow who can barely get up and down to Florida? Now, people say, I'm crazy. But if you can't tell that, he's got all that mileage on him on those feet and that his shoes or sticky. He's you know. That guy's not doing anything anymore doing what jumping Don King running shooting. What is he doing besides nothing? He's not even playing the rust on. This guy is like he's a ten man at this point. Is he not? I just don't get it. It is amazing to me. It really is on a nightly basis when I come in here and every week it doesn't matter if I'm on vacation of I'm here in LA. I'm always just never ends with Carmelo Anthony. Have you ever seen anything like it? How does this guy? Just keep popping up. He's like a cockroach he really is the lights come on at night. You gotta get some out of the fridge and they scatter run everybody. You know, like, wow. Did you see that? That's what he's like to me. He's like a guy that just won't go away. Is he not? I mean, honestly, he started being terrible with the necks, and he's still had five jobs since then. He just wants to well, then go down to the YMCA and fill it up against a bunch of fat, white guys. Right. Like, honestly. I won't believe it if they pick him up. I really won't just be like you have got to be kidding me. At some point. Don't you to say that like is this really happening? The guy just won't go away. You know, what he reminds me of almost I hate to say it because he could really play ball at one time for sure right? I won't deny that he could really fill it up. He could shoot against. And when you know when he came out of Syracuse, he was a stud and everything else. But. It's just unbelievable to me. You know, I don't know. He's like the guy the veteran player why. He's like a boxer is what he reminds me of the guy that leaves Roy Jones. You just keeps fighting for some reason. Right. The guy does he not just keep popping up and fighting. Here's ROY John's final fight for the twelfth time. Right. The guy that just it's one more for charity is doing it for the homeless one more fight. He just won't go. He's on paper. He's on free."
