"As a team with cap space or you're going to take a direction right now where we want to target players that are under contract for in under 2023, 24 or have their bird rights and basically acquire three or four players instead of going into the free agent game. Yeah, the Lakers are two and a half games and two in the lost column out of 5th. That's it. That's nothing. It's not nothing given just how many teams there are, but it's not, it's not much. And they have been playing all year long. You got to give them credit for as much of a show as they were for the first 15 games of the year. Are they going to start over with 7? Oh my God, whatever. They never stopped competing. That's the credit to the players. It's a credit to darvin ham. They compete every game. Like even the other Indians in Portland, they fall behind 71 46, the blazers are laughing it up to crowds taunting them. They come out and they're like, we can win the game. We can still win. We're not rolling over. And it's just not AD out, Reeves has been out, walker's been out. Like those are two of their best perimeter players. And I do think I just want to talk for a second about LeBron because as he approaches the scoring record, a lot of the analysis on the LeBron is like big picture, retrospective, he, for the millionth time, is the first person at his age to do X, it's a remarkable what he's doing at his age, you look at his career in total, all the records he's gonna break and he's about to break the most hallowed one probably in the sport. And I do think it's getting a little overlooked, the fact that he's still amazing. He's still amazing. And for a while, I think it was overlooked because the Lakers were losing and some of the games they lost had to feel of like, he just get the ball on the left block and be like, you know what? I'm gonna kind of pivot and take a couple fadeaways here just to see if I get some buckets and low stakes and I'll pull up from three a couple times 'cause why not, you know, I don't feel like going to the rim. This game's not worth it. That there are stakes now and here are the numbers. This has since Anthony Davis got hurt on December 16th, I think. The Lakers since then, with LeBron on the floor, our plus 99. With LeBron off the floor, they are -114. That is crazy town. The plus 99 is a big number. It means that his play is still winning. Winning play. Against teams that are trying to win, like good teams. I mean, everyone in the west every night is like it's like a freaking playoff game. And they're starting lineup right now. You could argue, Dennis Schroeder, Patrick Beverly, LeBron, Thomas Bryant, who am I forgetting? I don't know, somebody else. They've been going a little toscano Anderson too, right? Yeah, they've had JT. You could argue it's four backups and LeBron. And they're still winning these minutes. And so I like this deal for them, really is in the last, I wrote this in ten things either last week or the week before. The last month has been the best stretch of Rui hachimura's career. He can score now the fit is going to be interesting because as you said, the three point shooting has been mostly mediocre for his career with the exception of last season when he didn't play very much, but shot very well. LeBron's going to make all those looks easier, right? He's going to have to make them. What he's really wanted to do in his career is take long twos off the dribble and add a post ups against switches. There's going to be less room for him to do that. With the Lakers, he's going to have to make threes. He's also been an empty calories scorer for most of his career. He's like Alan Houston power forward. Remember Allen Houston, I'm not saying that Alan Hughes was not empty calorie score, but he was the king of like 22 one and one box score lines, 22, two and two. That's Rui. He's an awful passer. He's a bad rebounder. His defense sort of lax feel, and his best position is the four, which is also a LeBron's best position on defense. So they're gonna have to figure all that out, but there's talent there and it's a good buy low for the Lakers. And for the wizards, as you pointed out, I understand that people clown the wizards, you mentioned, do you just want to be a 35, 36 win team? They might just want to be a 35 or 36 one team that maybe one year wins 45 and gets to the second round and is competitive. If they lock into Kuzma and porzingis in the off season, that's what they're going to be. But they're still run by basketball people. If there were a first round pick to be had for hachimura, they would have the first round pick today. There was no first round pick. The rest of the league has watched Rui hachimura put up 12 zero and zero lines and play bad defense. Like that's just what it is. So I think it's a fair and it's a fair deal for both teams to disappointing for the wizards because they need to turn those picks into real players as you said and they did it and they didn't turn Rui into a player who was going to help their team going forward. But I think it's a good deal. I think it's a good deal for both teams and whether ruby starts or comes off the bench and I know there's reporting that they plan to start them. Okay, we'll see. It's where the shot like Rui LeBron AD and two guards. That's worth a look. Well, yeah, I mean, I think I was asked yesterday on radio in Washington that could have just waited until we got closer to February 9th and I said, well, basically Kendrick nunn in three seconds would have went somewhere else, right? If it wasn't hachimura would have been somewhere else and that was basically the best deal. Yeah, I mean, I think when you have currency in second round picks that that's more used in a trade, like we saw yesterday here.

Snoop released a statement saying he has waited a long time to put this project together because he wanted to find the right director, the perfect writer and the best movie company to portray the legacy he wants to leave behind.

Traffic and weather on the H and when it breaks, it's bob himmler and the traffic center. Are you free to play that music? If you want to, let's see if this go play. On rock creek Parkway, I think they're finished paving for the day. We're open in the northbound lanes now coming up from Potomac freeway. Traffic is moving both ways now if they can only fix that traffic light on rock green Parkway at the West End of the Kennedy Center and north end of the Kennedy Center, which seems to stick on a long red cycle. Late into the evening, not so much during the day, but you go out there late at night, you'll be sitting there for a while. But the lanes are open on rock creek Parkway now. So we're good to go. White horse freeway westbound had the crash before him street in the right lane involving the bus and in Maryland southbound on kenilworth avenue just coming off in Baltimore, Washington Parkway. The crash was there, right around route 50, and it is quite slow through Chevrolet as a result of that. Baltimore Washington Parkway northbound slows a bit up toward the beltway through green belt in the Laurel, and 95 southbound after route 100 had the crash. So I think it may be out of the roadway now, but it's still very slow on the ramp from westbound 100 on the southbound 95. T 70 looks all right. Eastbound 70 not so much. Eastbound after route 75 and haymarket, you do have a crash with a rollover truck. You do get by a single file on the left, westbound lanes are open. And in Virginia, interleukin still slows through Tyson's getting to a point near the American legion bridge 66 looks all right. 28 northbound after the toll road, the crash is gone, and southbound on 95 still slow from Norton over the Anka Kwan to one 23. And I believe they're still working on the crash on Dale boulevard west of 95 at barksdale. Bob and lucky traffic. Storm team four is Ryan Miller. Pretty quiet. And it looks like it's going to remain quiet overnight. Temperatures are going to fall into the 40s here inside the beltway and lower

There's a camera in that film poster of the film. It's droid so nelson. I met in new york in the summer of two thousand two. This was the first summer after nine. Eleven when new york like now was coming out of trauma and grappling for meaning. We met at sounds of brazil. It was at a cody chestnut concert you you and i were some of the few people actually watching the artist on stage everyone else was busy networking because it was an industry showcase event or something like that. I had no idea who you were. You were writing into a reporter's notepad so i being the firecracker that i am came up to you and said are you a writer to be a writer and the rest is history and here we are will do something funny. That same stories how. I met my mentor. Are you serious. There's a guy named robert. Rocky ford Who died a year ago. during dynamic and i was at the beacon theater. I'm saying seventy six seventy seven. I was a sophomore in college. And you're speaking theater graham central station great funk man is playing. There's all these people dancing and is one guy five rows in front of me writing a no pad music writer and i followed him out after the show. I'm a mccullough student these clips from my college newspaper and i sent him to long. He read them thought. I had promised and he brought me in. And i became like a depp's again. It became a mascot of billboard. And i started reviewing doing two areas. That were really wide open disco and heavy metal so i wrote for the disco section. I went to gay gay discos and reviewed first choice. I also remember vividly. Being assigned to to review ted nugent at madison square garden was acdc opening when the loudest you can't imagine how loud that was And so that was the beginning of my career was basically seeing someone was a no pattern following them out so there you go absolutely and what are you taking me seriously because you have been like buzzed scrammed but really all right. You gotta repay it. People survive thing you know so your experience coming up as a young known informally in brooklyn with all these other young unknowns like spike lee the marsala brothers laurence fishburne. Who else was there. There was who wasn't i mean the from vernon reid. There is a whole world of jerry. Allen great jazz musicians. Wesley snipes Had a big brownstone in the neighborhood. God i mean you know surprise Wendell pierce i mean i could go on. I mean there's in brooklyn boheme. We only had about eleven out of probably we could have had another two hundred people with that. Many saw williams Do common. He was like nineteen twenties. Paris beset in fort greene brooklyn. It really was interesting. Because i mean i would say i moved into the neighborhood in eighty five so it was already percolating and then spiked that. She's gotta have it because a lot of it was shot in the neighborhood so suddenly people start hanging out there. More spike gives really good parties or more people coming out. This is a cool area and so it begins to percolate. And then you had the poetry things and was a spot called the brooklyn moon out of that. One spot. Erica about do the bag lady. There so williams started his career there So there were several waves of people who came through the neighborhood. And i would say probably peaked out around nineteen ninety nine two thousand so there was a good fifteen year run. I think what's important for people to know is that spike lee who is synonymous with brooklyn. His first big feature film launched the independent film industry in america independent film but also it also wants to neighborhood and it was ration- i again. I'll tell you for example. She's going to have it. It opened on sixty six in broadway. Which was really cool in the theatre. It's the same place you'd see women on the verge of nervous breakdown. When the movie open it was a line outside of nothing but black people in their twenties and thirties up around the corner and spike would be out there giving out buttons and and lately you know he was really working the crowd and it was felt like a generational coming of age.
