"To and why? I could mention different world leaders or but to be honest, the person who influenced me the most is my mother. Like I said, I grew up in a very entrepreneurial family. I was raised by a single mom who did everything that she needed to do to raise my sister and I sent us to the best schools. She's very entrepreneurial. And so I guess even unconsciously, I was actually, you know, getting those traits from her because now, in my entrepreneurial journey, it comes very easy to me. And it's not lost on me that I must have picked that up somewhere. You know, and when I think on it, when I do some reflection, I pick that up for my mother. And she picked that up from my grandmother because I spent a lot of time with my grandmother too. And I saw how entrepreneurial she was. So it's the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. So yeah, that's the person who influences me the most. Obviously, there's some other people see to use, but really, what I think when I'm being very honest with myself, that's the person who influences me the most. Well, we talked about a mistake earlier, but a little bit different spin. If you could go back to the beginning, what would you do different or where would you consider taking a different approach? And one of the people that believed that everything is as it should be. You know, you can really beat yourself up when things happen. But something in you just tells you, this is how it was ordained to happen. There's a lesson to learn. You know, even insane the mistake that we made earlier as a company. There was a learning, there was something to learn out of that. So honestly, I would say nothing, it's the journey and we'll just take the time to enjoy the journey. We'll ask questions, tip and Lola. You're getting on a plane and you're sitting next to a young entrepreneur who's built the next big thing. They're jazzed about it. They can't wait to show it off to the world. Can we show it off to you right there on the plane? What advice do you give that person having gone down this road a bit? I'll give this person the advice I got. Always remember your why. Because remembering your why that will continuously lead you to your purpose, it will help you to stare you. It will stay you and your business and everyone working with you in the right direction. And honestly, it would also make you remember why it would make the challenges worthwhile. If you remember your purpose and remember why you're doing this, it will make the challenges worthwhile. And I think that was very important for me to know in the beginning of my journey because now when I see things when things challenges come up. I always remember my why. And so that's the advice I would give to any younger entrepreneur is at the start of their journey. Fantastic advice. Well, Timmy Lola, thank you for being on the show today. Thank you for telling the creation story of human squad. Thank you for having me Noah. And this concludes another chapter of coat story..

"Slash code story. So, okay, let's flip to scalability then. And I kind of know the answer to this a bit with the MVP, but I'm just going to ask it and see where you take it. Did you build this to scale efficiently from day one, or have you been fighting this as you grow and gain traction? Actually, no, like human squad was very like, I'd say from the first day, first of all, everything is not about revenue or money. I'm not one who focuses on revenue. What else focus on revenue but still? I'm just trying to save since we launched humans called first day. He must go to profitable. And so we're able to prove product market fit, like on the first day that we launched. In fact, in the first week that we launched, we had over 3000 inquiries, we had to bring on an adduct staff just to help us clear out our inbox. So we're able to hold us that this is a needed service, right? Immigration, like I said, it's a global thing everybody needs to move somewhere, right? And so we knew from the beginning when we launched your mascot that this was a scalable product. But what we decided to do because again, we didn't want to get too big too quick. And we actually wanted to learn the ropes that actually really learned this product. What we decided to do was to focus on Canada. First of all, because we live in Canada. Second Canada is a very immigration immigration friendly country, Canada has over 80,000 80 pathways Canada has over 80 pathways to immigrate into the country. So it made sense for us to build a blueprint here. Prototype, if you would call it, the first product, a flagship product, made sense for us to start with that because that way we're able to test out everything before we're able to scale to other countries. Iman squad is able to scale to any country as long as the country's immigration friendly and also the model of the human model is repeatable in any country. It's basically once we've figured out the blueprint and the plans for Canada, what we do is just repeat it in other immigration for any countries, which we have actually decided to do. So yeah, so we built this started when we started to build this, we built it knowing that this was going to be very scalable and we knew we're not going to struggle with scaling this product. It was just making sure that we do things the right way. You know, it's interesting that scaling question can go so many different directions, right? It can go technology can go people. It can go process and all of those are vastly important for scalability. Well, as you step out on the balcony and you look across all that you've built, what are you most proud of? It's not like those things are not important, like saying things like the traction that we've been able to enjoy since we launched human squad or like the reputable organizations that validated and endorsed us, which gives us some sort of validation. For me, I mean, my CEO Sunday might actually have a different thing to say, but for me, really, it's the reviews that we get from people who have used that product, you know, people say things like, oh, I was, you know, I struggled with trying to understand the different immigration pathways. It was just too complex and talking to a consultant at human squad just made everything seem so easy for me. And now I've landed in Canada and I just want to say thank you. You know, we get those kind of messages every time. And that's really what the joy is for me as a person, you know, yeah, I think that's really what I'm most proud of. The fact that we're able to actually help people, which is what we set out to do and set out to save one to do. And the fact that that is actually happening. Well, let's flip the script a little bit. Tell me about a mistake you made and how you and your team responded to it. One mistake I know that we made is, I mean, it wasn't really a mistake. It's just, I mean, when you're building a product, sometimes you get too excited and you feel like you want to automate too quickly. So what had happened was, like I said, we had our MVP, which was built on WordPress, and then we were like, oh, now we want to move now. I moved to this cloud infrastructure. And we built out this portal, which I think we built so quickly. And we didn't actually we weren't ready for the things that would happen. We built that we launched that portal. So we launched that portal and in less than a week we already had like 4000 signups to the portal. And so we're dealing with things like bugs where they know we both people with messages, but like, hey, you put out so buggy. You guys should fix it. We're dealing with things like sometimes. I mean, it was just ridiculous. I'm not a very techy person. So I'm sure the city will be able to say speak more to that fact. And it was just apparent to us that, you know, we had to swallow our pride and commission that photo. So we did do that with the commission of the total and we went back to WordPress. And went back to the drain board to just like, okay, hey, this is where the problems we faced when we launched how are we going to make sure that we don't have the same problem happening again when we launch when we, again, launch up like a cloud automated portal. In the three weeks or a month that I put on was existing, it was a nightmare because we used to get a lot of messages from customized complaints. It was just very hard and it was a very lean team and it was just a very stressful time. And it we learned our lessons from that. So I would say that's one of the mistakes that we made early on in our journey. You come out of those situations stronger and you learn a lot from them that they, like you said, it can be a nightmare though. So what is the future look like for human squad, the product or products, and your team? Like the future for human squad really is continue, like I said, continuing to build out more products along the immigration value chain. It's the possibilities are endless. And like I said, we're just tackling Canada right now. We intend in the next three to 5 years. We intend to obscure it into 5 different other countries. So that's a long journey and a lot of work ahead of us, but it's exciting. So yes, it's to actually we have three flagship products right now to really double down and make sure that those products are actually doing very well across the different countries. And for the team, really is, I don't know. To be honest, growth. I mean, it might be a very cliche ensemble like growth to continue to grow. I'm very I want our team members to really be happy working at humans who know that they're actually doing something impactful to the community. And also in their personal lives, work life balance is very important towards a human squad. And so growth work life balance, and that's it. Like I said, happiness, like people should be happy working at the company. So actually, so in June, in June, 2022, well, June 1, we would be, we would have been running human school for two years, so that's going to be our two year anniversary. And so we've been bootstrapping the humans called for two years. Pretty much. And it's exciting. We have an exciting announcement to make on that day, which is you're hearing here first. We closed our precede round, recently caused that precede round from calm company fund, which come company fund by the way shout out to them. The amazing Tyler account company is such is really the ideal founders investor is really very invested in growth and it.

I like that unconstrained model where you're doing lots of things manually because you're figuring out what is going to work and what is not before you engineer it. So that makes a ton of sense to me. So then from that point, how did you progress the product? And you mentioned building some other products. You mentioned taking the product probably in a different maybe in a different direction there. But how did you progress it? And I think to put that in a box. What I'm looking for is how you build your road map and how you decided, okay, this is the next most important thing to build. Like I said, what launched in June 2020? And so for like two years, it's about two years now since we launched. And we've enjoyed amazing traction since we launched because obviously immigration is a global everybody wants to move somewhere. So right? And so it's helped us gain a lot of traction in terms of user users and also in revenue and organic revenue too organic traction. And then also how that has informed our road map is we started out with our flagship product which was the immigration product and it was people coming to us like wherever it is like a client we're dealing with coming to us and saying, hey, oh, thank you for this service but actually can you also help me with these other service? So for example, like I said, we started about immigration product, which was basically just connecting. People who are looking to immigrate to license and regulated consultant, then in that process, the clients would be like, oh, hey, can you also help me get admission into a school, then that also informed, because we are getting a lot of this request that was like the next logical thing to build. Also, people would be like, hey, okay, I'm moving to Canada next month. And I want to start, I want to start reaching out to employers. This is my razor make. I always take a look at it and see if it actually fits into the Canadian standard. And we started to get a lot of those requests as well. And it's like, okay, that's like a personal branding product right there. So we also have a product that caters to resumes and cover letters, unlike interviews, still audits. I'd say, like to put it to put it in the box with the really our customers journey actually informs our road map because if it's a customer's pain point and we have a lot of customers that have in those pain points and it just tells us that we have to build a product that actually keeps us through that because at human squad well first of all, what first about the customer? How do we make things immigration easy for the customer? And if a lot of people are coming to us and saying, these are the problems we're facing, then we talk to the Internet and build animal like, oh, should we build a product? Obviously there will be a lot we just don't decide to be a product that will do all our permutations and see if we actually make sense to build that product now. Just the customized journey and pampers that informs our road map and what we build along the immigration value chain. How did you go about building your team? And I'm interested in how you did that, but also what you looked for and those people to indicate that they were the winning horses to join you. He must have started with myself and my cofounder and the CEO tuned in to you. So today is I would say 201st of all immigrated to Canada as an international student in 2015. This is my call. I'm talking about my cofounder now. Immigrated to Canada in 2015 as an international student. And he faced a lot of huddles and challenges trying to just navigate the immigration system. And this actually informed him sharing his experiences online. He started sharing his experiences online on social media and as of today has about quite a million followers. You know, people reach out to him for immigration tips, immigration advice career advice. And it was and so back in 20 19, I believe, a lot of people used to reach out to him to be like, hey, I want to move to Canada to help me. And it's like, no, I'm not a licensed immigration consultant. Then we talked, we were like, you know what, actually, maybe there's a product there. Even though we're not life science immigration consultants, why can't we create a product that actually connects people who are looking to move to license consultant? So that way people don't keep bugging you all the time and you're sure that people are getting the necessary service that they need. And that's actually what informed the creation of human squad and also we were the first two team members of the team. And down the line about 6 months later, we brought on our third member who was in charge of business operations. And to us, what was very important in whoever would bring on board was, first of all, there had to be very passionate about helping people. My son very cliche sound very basic, but that's just the core of what human score is. You have to be passionate about helping people. And that was one of the that was actually the top thing that we looked at whoever it is that we're looking to bring on board. Then down the line, we also brought on our city, our current city, who has experienced in building products that helps to simplify everyday problems. So again, it's just that thing where our team consists of people who are actually building something in whatever sphere of their life, building something that actually connects to people and actually helps people get through everyday challenges and problems. And that's why also, I mean, our name is human school. There's a human in human school. And it just makes sense that all about humans and people first. So whoever I see is that we bring on board to work with us, whether whatever it is that we're building, the human beings and people are at the center of the focus of whatever it is that we decide to do as a company.

"I'm your host, Noah lab part. And today, how Timmy Lola adebayo is building the immigration platform to connect you with the right tools and the right people. All this and more on code story. Timmy Lola adebayo is in tech, but her background is in film production. She grew up most of her life in Nigeria, but then moved to Canada. She's been producing films for ten years and still does. She takes large influence from her family who happened to all be entrepreneurs. Beyond professional things, she has a two year old son who keeps her on her toes, and she enjoys watching films and traveling with her spouse. And her cofounder set out to create tools to not only make the immigration process easier. But to provide immigrants with the tools and people to support them throughout the process. This is the creation story of human squad. Human squad is an immigration technology product. The definition we have for humans could really it's an immigration technology company and while on a mission to demystify the immigration system by empowering immigrants with the resources, the products and the personalized support that they would need to help them immigrate conveniently and affordably. The truth is, we like to say the Uber for immigration. We connect people who are looking to move to another country. We connect them to license and regulated consultants. We do that because one of the things that we try to do is to reduce for there's a lot of immigration throughout out there right now. And what we try to do is to reduce that by finding regulated consultants and pairing them up with people who are looking to move. So that was actually our flagship product. That's how we started human squad in June of 2020. But then as we've run the company, we've seen that there are other pain points that our clients face. For example, people are like, oh yeah, I want to move to Canada. I want to move to the U.S.. I want to study in the U.S. and Canada, but then I don't even know how to go about getting admission into a college or university in those countries. I was like, okay, that was in the original focus of our product, but this is one of the pain points that our clients also have. Through that, we've started with also started to build another product, which is a sub product of human squared, of course, that actually caters to people who are looking to study abroad in Canada and the U.S. and Germany and in Australia and in the UK as well. We're launching sometime in the fall, but what that just means is that we at humans got a value proposition of our vision and mission is to create products along the immigration value chain. So at every point in our customized journey in the immigration journey, humans could have a product that caters to that. So there is the immigration product which was our flagship product now. We've started this study admission product and there's other products that we also have developed developing in the pipeline. Tell me about the MVP, right? The flagship product. How long did it take you to build? And what sort of tools were you using to bring it to life? So our MVP actually took us two weeks to build. It took us two weeks to build. And we built on just like the regular WordPress because what we wanted to do was to determine product market free. We didn't want to invest so much money in building out this, oh my God, this expensive product and nobody was going to use it, right? So we said, okay, let's validate validate this product. And what we did was we created a small WordPress website. We used obviously third party plugins just to make the process seamless for without using the website and make things faster. And yeah, and that's how we ran human squad for about a year since we launched. We just continue to validate the problem and to product to validate product market fit as well. Because like I said, we do want to spend so much money building out this thing. We just wanted to understand, people using the WordPress products, people to come back to us and say, hey, I enjoyed using your product, but then I would have loved this. So we started to document those processes and what people would actually need. And that actually is informing what we're using to build out our current prototype that we're currently building right now. So like I said, for one year, we actually ran humans go to WordPress with some third party plugins integrated. I think that's a great MVP. So sticking on the MVP a little bit longer than with creating a first version of your product, you have to make certain decisions and tradeoffs about what technology you're going to choose right. It sounds like you got WordPress and you've got some plugins. Tell me about some of the tradeoffs you had to make when creating that and how you coped with those decisions. With the MVP came quite some manual processes because if we had started out building out like a fully automated product, things would be faster in terms of speed, right? But with the MVP because it was WordPress, what would happen is someone who book a service on the website and is actually one of our employees at the time was me, it was doing this because I was doing operations and it was me who on the back end would actually process these others so it would be receiving this order check in with our immigration consultant to see if the available to take that meeting, you know, sending an email to the client to say, hey, these are the availability options. Please select select and availability that you prefer. You choose your preferable time slot. And going back to the console that you say, hey, this is what the client prefers. You know, there was a lot of manual work. But still, what that helped with was it helped us understand the product very well. What we're trying to build and it also has informed the automation of the product because definitely we know that that kind of manual process is something that we are definitely cutting out in this new automated platform that building. But like I said, I don't I'm not sad about doing that because like I said, you just helped us understand the product. It'd be more than it helped us know our customers a bit more, right? So I'll say that's probably the only tradeoff everything else was like to be honest inconsequential. That was like the major major thing having to do things manually and spending a lot of time processing orders. But like I said, this helped us not automation process right now.

"Local broadcast that you watch that play the team plays against the pistons, they'll mention that slow start. And it's like, okay, we're overselling this a little bit. But it wasn't until March that he really became efficient in the large role that he's playing, and march he was awesome. Again, long-term outlook, I think I have him highest of this year's rookies on my top 25 under 25 ballot. But I do think given that, as you mentioned, the other three guys are playing important roles for teams that are going to make the postseason and have been more effective overall. They're certainly providing more at the defensive end than Cunningham is. I probably do have all three of them ahead. And Wagner is right there as well. In terms of the on off impact, he's been up there with Jones and mobley who are at the top of that group. Let's clarify something important. Make the playoffs. Cleveland and New Orleans. I said postseason making the playoffs. They're making the play in. We have to fight against this idea. That there are 20 playoff teams, which Adam silver, I almost call them Adam Sandler. Adam silver kind of said yesterday at border governors like we'll have 20 teams in the playoffs, I think you said something like that. No, no, no. We had 16 teams in the playoffs, and we have four teams that get the brown participation ribbon for being participants on the way to the playoffs. Just to know what a bookkeeping, mister pelton. Completely fair. I used postseason there intentionally for a reason to distinguish play in from the now. Now your tissue, my tisk tisk. I was wrong to test ice cube is what you're saying and you're correct. You're grammatically correct. I relent. You know, precision position is key for me. So I told you that the spicy rookie of the year take I had with Scottie Barnes is my choice over Evan mobley. And I got to say, then I went through and did the full research. And now I'm not sure anymore. I'm probably leaning towards mobley because the adjusted on off impact has been a little greater. Barnes case is more about the box score statistics, but understandably, a lot of box score stats are going to undervalue what mobile is doing at the defensive end of the court. I think either of them is completely legitimate choices and I definitely want to take this opportunity to say to raptors, fans that I did not grade Scottie Barnes selection to D plus. This is a graphic that's been going around raptors Twitter since October. And it was the off season grid I did for the raptors, which was based more on their other moves that they made after that that I didn't like as much. The dragged trade that the contracts for Kim birch and Gary Trent junior that allows him to get back into free agency. This is so much kember slander on my podcast. I don't even invite it. It just happens. People come on here and slander Kim birch and I have to defend his honor. I don't want to do it. Well, we can debate whether those moves justified a D plus. I mean, I think the raptors were pretty thin for the first half of the season for a reason. But unfortunately, when ESPN's social media was advertising this piece, they took the last line, which is that like, okay, I don't like those moves. But none of them matter long-term compared to whether Scotty Barnes is better than Jalen suggs, who people expected, the raptures to take forth. And they took that quote and put Scotty Barnes photo with it, and it makes it look like I'm saying, I'm grating it this because of Scotty Barnes. When it was actually saying the opposite, like, look, we don't know about rookies. Admittedly, I like Jalen suggs better. Scotty Barnes is completely exceeded my expectations. So happy to say that to raptors fans, how awesome Scotty Barnes is and was. But just know that that was not what I was doing with that piece. So can you explain the pivot to mobley because I've got all the advanced stats up right here and not all of them, some of them on basketball reference, PER, Scottie has passed them vorp, Scottie has passed some wind shares, Scottie has passed them, bipp them, box score plus minus Scotty has passed him. Scottie's has mobley by a little bit in each category. So what number is what stuff are you looking at that has you pivoting to mobley? Yeah, like I said, it's more in the adjusted plus minus range 5 38s raptor. One of the things I like about the graphical presentation of that is that they break out the box rating based on box score stats and then the rating based on off in your plus minus. And Scotty is higher in the box rating as you expect, but mobley does better in the on off, even though the Cavaliers, I think have been slightly better with him on the bench this season, but that's mostly a function of just how awesome Kevin Love has been, I think. I think it's really close. I've been leaning mobley all season. It's getting really close. I just think if just player to player, I think the single skill that shines brightest on an impact winning level is Evan mobley's defense. That's what my gut has been saying all year Scotty Barnes does a little bit of everything, including a lot of defense too. It could be hit or miss on some nights, but I just Evan mobley is already in all defense level player. And to me, that has shine brightest of all the skills that they have all year, but it's getting close, Scotty Barnes keeps getting better. He's now played like 250 more minutes than mobley and I don't care that much about 250 minutes, but if it's really, really close, sometimes I can use that as a tie burger. I don't really know where I'm going, but I don't think that spicy. Herbal arcade Cunningham would be spicy. I know what the numbers say about his shooting efficiency and this and that. About two or three months ago and continually since then, cade Cunningham got to the point where when the ball is in his hands, I feel pretty good about what's going to happen for the pistons out what's going to happen sometimes this he'll miss a step back too or somebody who's not very good will miss a kick out three because the pistons are young and rebuilding, but I feel confident with the ball in his hands and that's a big deal to me. Let's go to second team real quickly. So if we both have let's pretend we both have herb on the first team in pen. So our first team is mobley Barnes, Wagner, Cunningham, her. Who is your second I assume we both have jail and green on second team based on what we've just said so that leaves four spots, give me your other four remaining second team rookies. So the ones I figure we have in common are giddy, we already talked about Chris duarte as really well in terms of the on off impact metrics, missed a lot of time in the second half of the season. So that worked against him a little bit, not super efficient, but still still, I think, belongs here. And then I'm going to assume you also have bone Thailand who he's scoring as much per 36 is cade and Jalen Greene. Obviously doesn't play as much as those guys and he's playing primarily against backups coming off the bench for the nuggets, but he's, again, made a difference for a winning team, a playoff team, along with the addition of DeMarcus cousins in solidifying that second unit that was such a problem for them earlier than season. So are we in agreement on those three as well? Not quite. So the two locks, which brings us to 7 of the ten slots. Our jail and green and Josh giddy. So we're done with that. Those guys are really good. They deserve it. I don't talk me out of alper and shenguan being a lock for a second team all rookie spot because he's my 8th guy right now over bones over duarte over some other names that we'll mention in conjunction with these slots. Why is it not just Shen gun who has incredible advanced stats? Obviously he's a backup for a horrible team. He turns them all over all the time. He seems to travel 25% of the time he gets it. But the numbers are what they are, and you look at them, it's like defenses have to have to plan for what that guy does is a passer and a post force and a rebounder. So talk me out of it. Why is he not just the next guy in line?.

"I guess what you're telling me is like Laker fans should go on and just start making the John wall Lakers Jersey now on like the NBA's Jersey would just make it right now. Do you think that I'm sure the Photoshop are already long done? We're done in January before the deadline. The interesting, it's not interesting. The question then becomes, if Russ is traded in bought out, who's signing him, does this become a Carmelo Anthony post Houston situation where it's like, wait a second, he's still out of the league for this long. I'm asking not ingest. Who's signing rust to the one year 10 million two year $18 million deal? What's the team? I mean, I don't have one off the top of my head. I thought there was a certain sense of recognition going back to when Westbrook first got benched in the fourth quarter and carmela was talking about it postgame. And I think he empathizes because he's been through this already and managed to come out on the other side of it and he was we didn't talk about him, but he was one of the minimum players who for the most part did do exactly what the Lakers expected him to do. I mean, they were probably counting on him a little too much, but he made threes. He helped some of those small lineups particularly in early in the season. So there is maybe a positive outcome, but I think the Allen Iverson comparisons to how quickly he was out of the league or understand, well, because those guys, players like that have a tough time becoming role players. Carmelo had the shooting skill that he could do it. If you're Westbrook do your Iverson in everything is based on your ability without the ball and you're no longer as good as our other options with the ball, where do you go from there? Maybe Washington brings him back. They seem to have happy memories of that. I don't know. We'll see what happens. Let's change gears. That has now fulfilled my personal quota of Lakers talk. I can't do it anymore. I almost have to expect on the next episode of TV I do to get asked like, can the Lakers still make a run? No, they're out. We can't do it anymore. They can't make a run. It's over. KP, give me your first team all rookie and then after you're done with your first team all rookie, give me your rookie of the year. I'm assuming that every single voter, including the two of us, I don't know if we're both voters or whatever for this. We'll have four names on first team all rookie in sharpie and then the 5th name they'll be some variability. But give me your first team all rookie. Yeah, to me there is a clear drop off after 5. So it was not difficult for me to fill that 5th spot. And I think it was, and I think all of these players legitimately should get consideration for rookie of the year based on what they have done this year. So my first team is obviously Scotty Barnes. Kid Cunningham, Evan mobley, Franz Wagner. I assume those are your four. Those are the four that I think I think he just got, they have to be, they have to be on every ballot. I just can't, how are they any of those guys on second team? I don't know. So it's only the 5th spot. So I'm very anxious. I have three names in contention for my 5th spot and one that I'm leading strongly to. Who did you give it to? So I should preamble we did this last year talking about the all rookie teams of rookie of the year. It's an interesting award because do you approach it the same in terms of value is the other awards? You say the scale is lower because the expectations are lower for rookies. So someone like Jalen Greene who has been very impressive since the all star break has an extremely bright future. He's on my top 2525 ballot that's coming out next week on ESPN+. But he's been a poor defender this season. He's not a great playmaker. Struggled with his efficiency before the all star break. So I don't have him on my first team. And to me, the 5th person and someone who might end up on my on my rookie the year ballad because I think he's played that well. Wow, wow. That's spicy, yes. He came up earlier this week. Chris Harry mentioned that he and Evan mobley were his candidates for all defensive second team. And that's Herbert Jones who if you look at not on herb. If you look at him from an advanced stats perspective, his case is very similar, I think, to mobilize in many ways in terms of below average offensive player plays a very small role compared to the other guys on this list, but defensively has made a huge difference for the pelicans and in terms of on off impact adjusted for teammates and opponents. He's very near the top of this list, if not at the top of those lists. That is where I am leaning as well. Herb Jones for the last all rookie spot first team had everyone stayed healthy. I think this is probably Josh Gideon's spot, he averaged like 12, 7 and 6, shooting hit or miss, defense hit or miss, but the passing was just for a rookie outrageously good. Given that he's missed a bunch of games, and I think he finished with, I don't know how many minutes I got all the rookies in front of me, but I'm fine giving this to her, Jones doing it on a team. Not a winning team, but a team that's been playing, I mean, under some degree of pressure for like 60 games now, like every single win was meaningful to them. Once they went three and 16, even just to make the play in, he starting, he's shooting it just well enough from three that I feel okay when he shoots an open catch and shoot three, shooting well from two, the defense is just, it's all defense level quality to some degree anyway. I'm giving him this spot over giddy and Jalen green, Jalen green's acting 17 a game. He's second in scoring among rookies behind kid Cunningham. Obviously the advanced stats hate him, the efficiency hasn't been there all year, but the efficiency is there right now. It's just, it kind of is too little too late on the everything but empty calories for him, but let me make this clear. That kid's a stud. I love Jill and green. I would have really no problem with getting him on the first team. I just, I'm putting him on second team because it feels like those first three or four months were just what you would expect. Like, I remember talking to a couple of GMs about this. They're like, man, should we be down on Jalen green? And I was like, no, this is exactly young guard put into a score first roll on a terrible team. This is what you get. You get a lot of misses and a lot of weird decisions, but the talent is there. And now the talent is shining through, but I'm putting him on second team. I mean, the other interesting thing on green for a second is how similar his stats are to Anthony Edwards last season. Same kind of second half leap. And I had Anthony Edwards third on my rookie to your ballot. Last year. So I think it's telling the difference between those two guys, it's actually more about the depth of this year's rookie class and how many players are contributing in key roles. I love Jill and green. He can pass, he can shoot. He can shoot off the dribble. He's got a nice mid ranger, which I know is unsexy, but I like when he just walks into an open pick and roll too. He's got the tools and the will to be a good defender. I'm all in. So you're a rookie of the year ballot if it has herb Jones. Maybe. That means it's not going to have one of Evan mobley, Scotty Barnes, or Kate Cunningham. So what is your tentative rookie of the year about Kevin pelton? And how quickly should I banish you from this podcast as a result of it? I mean, obviously pistons fans are going to be disappointed if Kate, in fact, does not end up on my ballot, which he isn't provisionally. I think the idea that, you know, it was just a slow first month for him as little overplayed. He wasn't as bad the first month as people remember. It was really just that first week when he was coming back from injury. It was like four games. And.

"Here, getting him to get the picks by him out, save yourself a little bit of money this year, but a lot of money in future years if you trade long-term contracts. Did you find anything KP and you have any hope other than the John wall swap which is like the ultimate NBA white flag trade? I mean, that's the one that fits my criteria because it would probably cost at least especially if Houston looks at it and says Westbrook is willing to give back more on a buyout than John wall is because he'd have a more viable market somehow. I don't know if that's even the case at this point. You know, I think the long-term contracts violate my role unless we're again in a world where LeBron is committed through 2025 and we're like, okay, we do need to go for it right now and cap space in 23 is no longer a concern. So you found that the answer is you found nothing. Well, I left it to you. I knew that you had something. So what did you think of my Indiana one? Russell Westbrook, talen Horton Tucker, two unprotected first round picks for buddy heeled and Malcolm Brogdon, who says no to that. I think that's a really intriguing one because the healed fit we knew was their previously brogden is the exact kind of guy you want on a team like this can take some of the ball handling duty off of LeBron's plate and be a really good defender. His health is a bit of a concern. You're adding another question mark on top of. That's the other aspect of it is how much your AD you're going to have next season. I would probably do that if I were the Lakers. Again, if LeBron was committed. Would you do it if you were the paid? I can hear the pacers fans. I didn't recoiling because those are talented players. One of whom the pacers just got as part not the main part, but at some part of a landmark trade that looks like it's going to work out great for them. And it's like we're getting two picks and this guy that we're not even going to use, but the two picks don't sleep on the two picks. Those are valuable picks. Would you do it if you're the pacer you're just hanging on to those guys and come what may? I probably would not because I think they do want to get a look at what this team actually looks like with Halliburton in there along with brogden's barely played lately in miles Turner hasn't played at all since they made that trade. But to your point about the picks, it's compared to when the Lakers traded all these picks in the Anthony Davis trade, future Lakers picks look a lot more valuable now because of the fact that the pelicans are going to end up with a top ten pick out of this. I was going to say, how about present Lakers picks the pelicans or throwing a party and the grizzlies are grizzly? Can you guys give me a little better so we can have a chance to getting this pick a better chance of getting this pick? Mark, this was on my list in Mark Stein sort of put it out there today in his substack newsletter. Charlotte for some combination of Hayward and something. Hayward has two more years left on his big contract after this one has been. I think a disappointment in Charlotte, mostly because of injuries, the team is almost like appears to have moved on functionally from him already. Obviously he'll play a lot when he comes back. He's been back for a couple games and out for a couple of games. But the team has a road map to surviving now without him. Does that and then again, you're not getting Russell Westbrook to pair him with LaMelo Ball or you're getting him to buy him out and then figure out what happens. Does that move the needle for you for either team? I think it's definitely intriguing for the Lakers. Again, the same injury concerns, but Hayward is the kind of guy you'd want to put around these players, guy who can defend multiple positions, doesn't need the ball, but can create with it all of those things. He would be an ideal target I do think for the Lakers. And Charlotte's perspective, you just don't seem to want any part of this from any of these teams. It's just a collective shoulder shrug, right? Okay. But then I won't even go into the other ones. People will nominate Tobias Harris, but that doesn't get me anything if I'm Philly. If I'm Philly, I want immediate cap savings more than anything else. So I'm not getting that this summer. I even thought like Lowry marketing and Kevin Love, but why would Cleveland do that? Like marketing has been I think market has been okay. I'm not psyched about that contract if I'm Cleveland and love is a 6 man of the year candidate with one more year left in his contract. It just becomes like not really worth my trouble to upend my team like that. And then the Knicks. Randall, who has a gazillion years left on his deal, fournier who has two years left on his deal. Maybe the Knicks are the one team who would be like, you know what, might as well just play the guy. He's Russell Westbrook. People come watch him, he'll get triple doubles and what it can't be worse than like trying Alec Burks out at point guard and he's been fine. He's just not a point guard. That one, that one just feels like I have like an involuntary spasm of nausea just saying all of those names and imagine that being traded for each. I don't think anyone's happy with that one. Yeah, it's a mutual sadness trade. It feels like a very early 2000s trade, especially when these contracts were much longer and teams were like, we just need a different problem than we have right now. It's probably a pretty good trade for the Lakers if you think that Randall has a way to not get back to what he was last year, but become a different kind of good player around different other kinds of good players than he was this year to get that for Russ. I think sounds good. The years, the years are not great..

"Bring in Seattle icon, ESPN, NBA expert, mister Kevin pelton. How are you, sir? I'm doing well out here in the Pacific Northwest. Yeah, the weather's nice. It's crap out here in the east, it's still cold and rainy, but such is life kraken season as well underway. We're watching this. We're watching the lottery standings at this point. The storm season is coming two birds giving you one more year. Everything's happening in Seattle. The intent of this podcast was to do a quick all rookie rookie of the year check in because I think you have a, I don't think it's a controversial rookie of the year take, but I think it's gonna end up being the contrarian rookie of the year take. But before we do that, in the intervening time between scheduling this podcast and executing the podcast, the Los Angeles Lake or season has ended, the grave digger has thrown the dirt on top of the grave. It's over. I think no matter what your expectations were for them, they may be the single most disappointing one season team in the history of the NBA. All the other candidates people bring up KP are like, well, the Steve Nash, pal Gasol Dwight, you know, so this is gonna be fun. It was like, yo, they made the playoffs. They had 45 wins. They made the playoffs. The nets when they traded for KG and Paul Pierce, they made the second round. This team is almost 20 games under 500. They stink. They absolutely they're like as bad as the kings. I don't think any single state. Even if you were lower on them than consensus, I think, is there any team in your database that there's no precise way to measure a disappointment, but I just, I don't really remember anything quite like this. I haven't looked at this. I think there are teams that may have gone below their preseason line by more than the Lakers did just because of the fact that, you know, if you're tanking it fully tanky at the end of the CSN, you can be really bad, but those teams aren't disappointing. Like you mentioned all those teams, like the original team that was considered this kind of disappointment was the 2003 O four Lakers when they added Karl Malone and Gary Payton. That team made it to the NBA Finals. That was the level of disappointment at that point. I don't get that one that that team is considered even in the moment that's one thing. Like those are big names. It's the Lakers. They had three people. This is like that one now seems like it's a pretty good season. I know they lost and they sort of ended the finals in dissension and all that. But still, so before we get to the off season for them, there's been this rush of columns and analysis this week of like, well, it wasn't just the injuries. You can't just blame the injuries, the Lakers that skirting the real issues, I don't really think anyone is just blaming the injuries except maybe the Lakers themselves and Anthony Davis is really, he's on the verge of becoming I said this last week. This is like in the territory of the 2008 Celtics never lost a playoff series when they were healthy. Like it was like 2013 and people were like, Alabama, this 2008 Celtics, they had never lost a playoff series right. I hope they was like, okay, I don't really care, but maybe that's factually true. But I think everyone else has more than acknowledge the other reasons why this went wrong between the rush trade, the minimum signings gone wrong, the injuries. What stands out to you KP is maybe a reason that has been underplayed or under discussed compared to the others that you think is more maybe a primary reason why this all went bust. I mean, I think ultimately, we had this question for a long period of time. What would it look like if a team were to completely erase the books? And then you go out and free agency and you sign like three max players and everybody else is a minimum contract other than the room exception. Like I remember we talked about this when the liquors were trying to recruit Lamarcus Aldridge and somewhat I can't even remember who the second guy was when they were maybe Deandre Jordan at that point. That summer and it would have been those three guys in Kobe in all minimum contracts in my position was like people would be very excited about this team, but they're not actually going to be very good because they'll have no depth. And I think this year's Lakers, even though it wasn't exactly that scenario, or proof of concept of that, that you have to have some level of depth beyond minimum guys and obviously they were somewhat unlucky that Kendrick nun missed the entire season and I think they were reasonable. It was reasonable for them to think that they were going to get more from talen Horton Tucker than they did. But you just can't at the end of the season end up starting when yin Gabriel and expect to be a contender of any kind. Poor when you and Gabriel, just by accident, became I did it too. He became the shorthand for Lakers for utility because he wasn't on the team and just until like yesterday suddenly he's on the team, there's this vague knowledge even among NBA die hards and he's like, he's bounced around. He's been in the G league. Then he was starting an Austin Reeves had started enough games and been productive enough. It's like, awesome, he's pretty good. Wendy and Gabriel just came in as it was all falling apart. And now in 15 years we'll be having beer today. I had, that was like when the Lakers started Wendy and Gabriel poor guy. I mean, I was in Reeves at least played well enough. He's going to get a mention later in this discussion. So he's one of the highlights of this series. But yeah, picking out winning Gabriel amongst DJ Augustine being waived by the rockets and all of a sudden he's a crucial part of your rallying to make the play. And there's no shortage of examples of the Lakers turning to players that were out of the league or playing sparingly because they were that desperate. It really is a perfect storm of just from all angles in all volumes. So the rush trade, even those of us who were skeptical of it, I don't think we envisioned it to be an epic disaster on this level. And the opportunity costs of not doing the buddy heel trade and at the same time doing the rust trade, which is more expensive than the buddy trade and cost you basically all the rest of the ingredients of the supporting cast that helped you win a title, double it on top of that, choosing Horton Tucker over Caruso, which at the moment didn't seem it seemed risky, but not terrible. And then part of the storm is THT just completely fails to develop this season at least, right? This is a completely disappointing season. So that happens..

"When you switch that much on defense, I don't know if it's a downside. It's a feature of switching that much. There are a lot of possessions where you switch one pick and roll, switch something else, then the rest of the possession goes on, and you're now guarding because of all the switches you're guarding some rant, you're guarding, I'll just pick a name. Isaac okoro, you're guarding some shooter off the ball in the corner. Far away from the rim. And then a drive will happen and there won't be any rim protection because, you know, you're the rim protect the best rim protector on the team. And there's part of me that thinks, man, the switching really worked, it stalled them out, but one drive, and then I'm like, man, I kind of wish band was near the rim. Do you feel that tension like have you talked about it as a teen? Like, is there a way we can balance the switching and the rim protection a little bit more? Is it just you have a top 5 defense? It's working, leave it alone. We do talk to it. And that's what we saw. We over communicate. So I can't become the low man to go block the shot. So, you know, we're not going to save it ain't broke don't fix it. That's not what I said that would be good. But we have had conversations about all bam can switch onto the guard and then you know they shoot it and a big man gets the officer rebound because he was contestant shot. So they're all going to have those type of type of talent. But in my opinion, all defense would go through that. Oh yeah. You know, sometimes the defensive player of the year beat down there and they still get a layup. The difference is this is the NBA. Everybody's good. That's the thing about it. You know, but the teammates I have, you know, the working night and night out to figure out how to make this work. And we have. Let's go through your career quickly a little bit. Bubble finals you alluded to it. The number 5 seed to make the finals in the bubble. You get hurt in game one and every watch the clip if you get hurt, it was a drive on Dwight Howard, where something happened with your neck shoulder area. You missed games two and three, which had to just be brutal. Talk about it. I've heard a little bit about the backstory, but tell us a little bit about your efforts to play those games, how badly you want to play them. The team being like, bam, you can't play. And I just remember hearing like, he can't really lift his arm that much and how hard was it? Like what percentage were you when you came back in game four? I mean, that meant to make the finals and have that happen in the game one. It sucks. It does suck very much that suck. So they gave me a test. And they said, if you can do a push up, you can play. So, you know, obviously how I think about it because I'm one of those people like, I feel like I don't get.

"The ball rolls over there by, you know, coach Riley spoke, everybody executive as long as I'm warns over there. And I'll look at him and he's like, you got me up. I'm getting all these stops. There's nothing more you need to see at this point. Like, y'all got me up by chair. Thinking, I'm gonna just crash. And in my mind, yeah, it was a great idea. It was a great idea that I did. Now, backstory, I was kind of like, damn, you know, if they don't like those type of players, this ain't for me. Because this is who I am. When I feel like I'm going, I'm going to talk. That's part of the basketball game. I'm going to talk. I'm going to say what I got to say. And if you get offended, then I can't be on your team because every day I'm practice, I'm going to be like that. And they loved it. So they did. So just one of those just a great story to tell, you know, just seeing their faces was just like in awe. Yeah, 'cause they was kind of looking at me like, he just said, we got him up. Like, is that this 18 year old kid? Has enough balls to tell the head coach, the president, everybody over there, you got me up. And I felt like it was a moment where there was like, no, this is, this is who we want. This is the dog mentality that we need in our, you know, in the culture. Does job search can be a frustrating journey filled with hours on the computer, countless attempts to get noticed by employers and nothing but a pot of black coffee to keep your company.

"This, you know? Just because I started getting on the court because of defense. That's why I started playing because I could switch because I was athletic and, you know, able to switch one through 5 and be able to guard everybody on the court. So yeah, after a while of you, you know, processing that you can compete at the highest level with some of the greatest scores, shooters, you can imagine this game right now. Yeah. In my mind, I was like, I can be the default player here. Because at first it was like, I just want to be all too defense. And then I was like, you know, my confidence starts to rise and it's like, no, I can be deeply a lot. Like, I have that. I have that capability. And, you know, spoke staff, you know, just watching film has gave me the opportunity to become that. And you know, just being instinctual and just going out there and just doing the unthinkable, like guarding a guy on a pick and roll, switch to pick and roll, he throws the lab, you go from garden to those of those alive, to blocking the law. You know, that's just, that's you don't see that every day. And it's because, you know, small lets me be who I am. Every once in a while, I do I made this. I go rogue every once in a while. I will. But, you know, he allows me to just be myself. Well, the same thing happened on offense too, right? Because now you bring the ball up, you're kind of a point center, but for a while, it was like, all right, we're gonna let bam do that. Oh wow, I didn't realize he was gonna do all of that. And there would be some turnovers or a split. All right, maybe this little too much point bam going out, but you were like, no, I'm like, if you're gonna let me do it, I'm gonna do it, right? You went rogue that way too. Yeah, he's letting me grow is an office of player two. Definitely went to turnovers because sometimes she'd be like, you shouldn't throw that bounce back. And in my mind, I'd be like, well, spoke he was open. So that's why through. And the thing I like about, you know, me and exposed relationship. You know, we trust each other. So every time I mess up, you know, I'll give them, I give them my bad. That's on me. But more times I'm a, I will make the right play. And I feel like that's what he trusts me with. And you know, that's valuable in this day's NBA. You're talking about trusting your coach and trusting your players. I'm going to preface this question by saying you can swear on this podcast. It is allowed. If we're going to talk about switching and defense, I wrote a profile of you that came out right before the world ended with the pandemic. And when I was starting to interview people months and months before, they said, you got to ask everybody you can about bam's pre draft workout with us because we have never seen anybody go at spo and Riley Riley. The Godfather with trash talk like bam did. And it wasn't like gentle trash talk. It was profanity laced trash talk. And it started, I believe, when they asked you to do a drill in which you had to switch on to some perimeter players and you were and you got the sense I think that they were testing to see if you could do it and they're uncertainty, I think, almost offended, you know, can you tell, can you tell that story from your perspective? And what it felt like in the moment to be like, wow, these are some words coming out of my mouth, and those are some NBA heavyweights that I haven't been drafted yet, man. I'm not in the league yet. It was definitely one of those things where you know when you feel like somebody goes at your pride. As a man, you know, somebody just going at your pride and who you are. And that moment when, you know, they're telling me to switch everybody, switch, and guard the ball of out of balance, they'd be like, bam, I'm going at the top of the key. 5 seconds. And I started realizing like, all right. I didn't like the third or fourth time, y'all with me. At this point..

"And now, the low post. Welcome to the low post podcast recording on a Wednesday midday after the Miami Heat, won their 6th consecutive game inching closer to the number one seed in the Eastern Conference the least discussed number one seed in recent NBA history having recovered from the Jimmy Butler Eric spoelstra kerfuffle and joining us to talk all things heat and NBA defense and lots of other stuff, the one and only starting center for the Miami Heat one time NBA all star should have been two. Should have been at least two. Bam adebayo. What's up, bam? What's up, man? What's up? Should have been too. This season too many missed games, I think injury at the wrong time last year he should have made it. Yeah. I mean, injuries always a gift and a curse. You know me. I don't like the mis game. So this was me having to sit down so we're basically. Because, you know, I played all 82 before, you know, shorting season Olympics and then going into this season. And I guess the man above was like, you got to take a break. So it looks like you're going to be the number one seat. Last night, we're recording this Wednesday. You beat the Charlotte hornets. The Toronto Raptors beat the Atlanta Hawks and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Houston Rockets, moved from tenth to 8th and one night. So you know if you're first, okay? And the nets are in 9 through tenth. If they get in, they can only be the 8th seed, so you'll face the nets. If there are 7th and 8th, they could be the 7th seed and face any of the teams below you. So my question, I want the real answer. Are you looking at the standings? Are you tracking the games? Because there's a difference. You may not want to say it publicly. There's a difference between Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets, and like, you know, those other teams. Do you care? We don't. I mean, in the playoffs, you know, it doesn't matter about standings at that point. You know, in my opinion, we've seen God. We've seen teams where they can be the number one seed. And lose in the second round. We've seen 50 seeds go to the finals. Yeah, yeah. Exactly. Talking from experience. So in that way, I feel like we just got to play our game, you know? We just got to be the best we can be. And, you know, really hone into our to our culture and our standards that we hold. You've had you missed 25 games. Jimmy's missed a bunch of games. Kyle's mister bunch of games for personal reasons. Even heroes miss games here and there. Now you have a new starting 5 with max drus. Has the in and out nature of the season? Has it been hard? Do you still feel like you're figuring out what you are as a team? Or do you feel like when we get everybody, we can just lock in like this? I feel like we can lock in like this. I mean, you know, the guys we all want a team, you know, one through 15, the ultimate goal is to win, you know? That's the ultimate goal that's everybody's mindset. And with that being said, everybody's willing to sacrifice to get a win. You know, one through 15 and it's one of those things. It makes the game truly easier. It makes it makes our locker own closer. And it's just a better, a better mental state for our team. If everybody's on the same page. So I've spent a whole year on TV. Getting asked about the nets and the sixers and the bucks and MVP, like one out of every four times, they'll be like, I will literally say, hey, we should probably talk about the team that's number one in these circuit. In fact, there was a nets heat game where you guys beat the nets and all we did was talk about the nets the next day and I said, you know, there was another team that won the game. That's good. And even Vegas, Vegas, as you like the fourth or 5th team to come out of the east, do you, and you got a bunch of grumpy dudes on your team. Do you realize that you're being overlooked a little bit? Do you like being overlooked? Do you realize that this has been going on?.

"But then as the movement progressed were basically the the movement almost became a wing of the democratic party as opposed to an independent organizing tool was a problem that i and i think more importantly that we look at why the state decided to kill. Dr king is very instructive because when back to king started reaching out to african leaders when he started having those kinds of discussions study questioning the motives in the mission of the democratic party started questioning Integration and and one of the one of his last statements of course when they said you know. Do you question The philosophy or the the the direction in terms of integration. And he said you know. I have led my people into a burning house and then someone said well. What do you do at that point. Said you know you become a fireman So i think at the end of his life because movements always dynamic people always changing and and and trying to understand how their analysis can be sharpened. I think he began to question. Some of the directions. He began to question the direction of the civil rights movement back. The marshall coleman outta bio for the audience who may not know you are an activist you on historian former black panther and you are expert on u. s. u. n. africa relations. So can you tell us about your work with the united nations and then with the epa. Yeah i mean. I had the most amazing opportunity to work at the united nations. And and i worked for a a of a man who is from Cookie jar and It was. I looked down under the auspices of the united nations development program and so i was the representative of for there was a smaller unit in their call. United nations danell sahelian office and we worked in the parts of africa that were facing desertification or desert encroachments. And so i worked in tanzania in uganda and kenya and the obama and and that entire region to help these countries understand how we could bring the wealth of knowledge from the international community to aid these communities that were suffering from from desert encroachment And so it was it was. It was an amazing opportunity. Because i was able to work with communities with refugee communities communities that were fleeing the desert in which the earth had nulla was no longer able to provide the capacity to feed them And so you know. I worked on a day to day basis with people who face survival issues and have made the decision to fight on for the next day and not die the day before And so i learned a lot about courage.

"The court so which advantages Enjoy against the nuggets and will they translate against the heat? So. When I look at the Lakers I do think that you have to look at just the supporting cast and whether or not certain guys are going I. think it's really. I think. Our players like Rondo going to step up Caruso going to hit his open threes says Danny Green going to be able to defend ball handler and not like a turnstile and down spot up three's case ep going to be able to run the floor finish in transition press the ball ninety, four feet and. Impact the game in transition and hit open threes The way that he did in the finals I think that those are key factors i. Honestly. I know that you know everyone has been listening to. US throughout this entire playoff run we'll say that I've you know doubted the Lakers? I guess you could put it mildly that'd be a mild description of how I felt about them. You picked again against them at every turn. Michael And I think a huge part of that is. The supporting cast and the my trepidation to believe that they could generate enough offense and a half court setting and so far. They haven't really needed to generate offense and a half court setting. I think against Miami which is like I think Miami. Is the first real defense No disrespect to. actually, I guess all the disrespect to the rockets blazers. With this movement Michael 'cause I've been saying that for a long time no disrespect but disrespect I think that should just enter the lexicon. Let's not be afraid to disrespect every once in a while well, Denver you know I thought that their defense way earlier in the season two million years ago was getting to be at a near championship level because of their cohesion but like they just broke down on the first couple of rounds and they had good moments here and there and stretches but. Their defense is just in no way comparable to Miami's in my opinion after watching Miami's defense just I mean. The show like the individual pieces in Miami you have Jimmy who is excellent and he kind of poses an issue for Lebron. Lebron hasn't had to combat so far. you have Bam obviously who you know I would honestly not surprised at all. If Bam ended up on Lebron and a lot of possessions in this series because you would presume that I think that the Lakers will have to downsize eventually if not right away. Honestly. and. You would assume that Bam will be the one who's guarding Anthony Davis and I think that they will switch that pick and roll Lebron, AD. Pick and roll quite a bit i. don't even know if the Lakers will be able to go to it that often because of how often they'll switch and Bam can guard anybody in the world. He's absolutely incredible if I had to pick who's going to win defensive player of the year next year our pick Bam at a bio he's..

"Walker struggled again in game one box in the Celtics and Miami Heat. I'm Sarah good well here with Jose Cuervo and Jimmy Toscano and Bobby Manning. He finished with 19 points, but a very inefficient 6 of 19 from the fog. He was a -4 rating. Nothing was working. He could not find a rhythm. Obviously, he made a couple of setbacks at the end of the game. So he's slightly redeemed himself, but not what you walk out of your All Star point guard. What is going on? Is it mental for, just because he's never been here before or what do you blame his inefficiency on? I give a huge amount of credit to Bam adebayo because that guy defends the pick-and-roll unlike anybody else in the league for centers and we've come so far from that Philadelphia stage where Joel embiid's they basically sent into the basket line Campbell shoot to just this massive Force being in Kemba space around the screens and going back last four games of the Toronto series off and into this game one Kemba shooting 15% from 3. He's just not getting those looks around the screen gotta go in between. He's already not a finisher. He's made one three-pointer in the last in every game in the last five games just one. Yeah, and so his bread-and-butter all Year's been dancing around that screen again and opened look and I like it's not going to let you do that with one of these days man. I'm gonna get the tape find out man High School swimming and all right. Anyways see Emma Walker he's going through it again because the Toronto Raptors exposed them guys. You talked about this at the game seven like the he's the weakest link. He's got a Target on his back. And when I say defensively you can put this through through a wall after wall and all that energy that he spending trying to keep up with this, you know, the guy he's defending by the time you get ball in his hands and he's dribbling out a shot-clock, you know twenty or nineteen seconds. I have the shot clock the guys exhausted and that's why he's checking up shots off. And on the fourth quarter. I give a lot of credit though. He's he change his approach. He was getting to the free-throw line. He had obviously that big shot down the stretch where the Miami Heat and don't hit the big 3-pointer and the front for overtime everyone off Kemba Walker saves the day or at least come and Walker can still hit a big shot when he dies cold. I think that's what's really tricky about. Kemba is often because we've seen him do that before we can go to 4:10 throughout the first half and then just hit it, you know two or three shots in a row down the stretch and listen. I think you're going to see that throughout this series in the better games that you see from Kemba Walker you're going to see more of that as opposed to a full-out birth. Point performance domination game out of Campbell in this series, but that doesn't necessarily mean the subjects need him to do that to win this series, but he's going to be going through it for a while. I mean the camera struggling can buy that you're seeing right now. He's not the camera that Celtics fans have grown to know the season..
