How Will Stan Van Gundy Fit With the Pelicans?

"Was a few weeks ago in the ringer NBA show that at the very tail end of the show I recall you saying. Keep an eye out for Stan van Gundy and New Orleans and since we last spoke That came to fruition Stan Van Gundy was hired by David Griffin and the New Orleans Pelicans I think when this all started with the pelicans ouster of Alvin gentry. Through the. Face Tyler had a former relationship with David. Griffin, we talk about my Tony possibly because he had a former relationship via the Phoenix Suns with David Griffin but they do land on Stan van, Gundy as their next head coach when you saw that news come across the wire, would you think great I'm happy I think he could bring some accountability to the team in terms of how much they need it on the defensive end of the floor they were horrific. On defense this season in San Andy. Of course, infamously famously I'm not sure once said build an effing wall and that the Pelicans need to do and I look forward to see what he can do now that he's back in the NBA but by the way like he failed in Detroit because he was coach. Angie 'em now he's just a coach right and he was always a good coach. He was good basketball coach and it was one of those cautionary tales of. It is two different skill sets number one it also in many cases can be two different motivations right if I am if I am the general manager and the coach now let's say I make a poor signing or a poor usage of money will sometimes I may want to use that guy to prove that I was right about this guy right and I know that you Still get into that with with a front offices and coaches anyway, right in in everybody wants to be responsible everybody wants to be right about the move they made. But when you then you're not doing the scouting of every other team on a regular basis, I know you have scouts you're certainly not doing that with college, but it's just a very hard job to do twofold and. Another cautionary tale of taking that over I mean everybody wants that power but I think we've seen two of these guys. Now fact three of these guys. Now, all of which I think you would say were subpar to very below average in that role but. We respect them as guys that are on the sidelines as basketball coaches. That is their expertise in that is doc rivers who took on that role Tom Thibodeau who took on that role and Stan Van Gundy who took on that role and yet got hired as coaches though it didn't go well at their last stops. I mean doc better than the other two but we thought. Hires because these guys are good basketball coaches who were miscast trying to run everything for sure absolutely and ultimately it's another good opportunity for him when New Orleans area there even though they have Zion, they have ingram granted these a restricted free agent. He'll likely back matched any offer sheet or whatever This is still sort of A. Team right now that can go in many different directions depending on how David Griffin wants to build it out and I look forward to seeing the ways in which Van Gundy, Utilize Zion and the ways in which he tries to get him going off because remember you know before all the three point shooting, we've seen the last ten years or so that has. Exploded with the warriors and the rockets and all these teams shooting lot of threes, the magic, Dwight Howard at center and four shooters around him in the late two thousands with anti head coach and they went to a finals. We're going to be lost to Kobe and the Lakers The had some good run they some really strong teams and in with Williamson. With the New Orleans Pelicans, I know they want to add another they don't want to go like all small Wall. With Zion at the five all the time it's it's just went to work but I, think van Gundy's pasts and what he could do now with this roster, it's kind of exciting to think about the possibilities with the different ways in which they can use ion but most importantly though and again, this is like with all the coaching hires we talk about I am more interested in the personnel changes who they draft, who do they try to trade for? Who Do they try to sign I am WHO's coaching the team, but you know I'm excited to see if they're able to get. Zion, going and creative ways that they weren't able to do as much during the season despite his success he posted up a lot man I. WanNa see some more pick and roll with Zion I wanNA see some more creativity with him, handling the ball and running pick and roll, and that will largely come from other personnel changes that come to the roster that allow that to happen. But Hey, man SVG had success with some different types of teams in the past and I look forward to seeing what he can do here with him, and that team has a good roster they under performed badly. Made sometimes teams underperformed because you look at their roster and you go man aol have the goods like that team underperformed I. Think so too. I think of course it I mean look I mean Lonzo I think Lonzo hit one shot in the bubble well, even though they're young that defense was bad even though they had good individual defenders, they've jrue holiday one of the best perimeter guard defenders, Ingraham and Lonzo. They were good defenders of the Lakers. They were the last two years. They were good. They were not good defenders last season with New Orleans. And Zion I, mean he was horrific. He was so bad on defense. It was it was really sad to watch. This is the guy who is blocking three point shots closing out from the opposite side of the paint at Duke just a year prior, which is why people wonder how much of it was fatigue coming back but season how much of it was the injury limiting him how much of it was effort I? Don't know I don't know what it was but regardless. He stunk on defense, and all of this needs to change next season for this team to be anything that have any chance of actually getting into the playoffs it can't be all

Resented by Geico. Welcome back to another episode of the Adam Schefter podcast before we get To the new host of NFL Live Laura Rutledge and fantasy expert Jon Hansen. Sizing up the fancy football season that is 20 21st. There are some other developments that impact the NFL world that are unfolding as we speak, and of course, many of them relate to the pandemic has so much of What happens today does and we are awaiting to see whether college football goes on and whether or not it goes on, I think will impact how the NFL season plays out later on, because if indeed college football is canceled or postponed or push back There is a real opportunity for the NFL to move into more days on the calendar later on it, So I think there's a real chance that if college football goes away that the NFL will adapt and adjust its schedule to make it such that there are more days of Mohr NFL games going on and that the league will take further control. Of this sports calendar. That's one issue that the league will have to wrestle with. Another one that is having to wrestle with right now are the rules and restrictions that teams have to go through during covert testing. Think about this. Ah, player has to pass three covert tests in four days before a team. Will allow him on the field. So the NFL may need to take a look at that. Because if we go and move this forward into the season, think about this a teenage place. Think about this. A team plays Monday night loses too wide receivers to injury. Has to bring in wide receivers the next day. Guess what works out wide receivers decides which one or two? It's gonna sign and signs those players went before those players can get on the field to help that team. They've got a past three covert tests in four days and wait another day for the results. So it's five days before those players could get on the field so they can't go through practice that week, and the team that needs help, But that position whatever team it is, whatever position it is, can't get those guys on field to practice. I could tell you this. It's an issue that has general managers and front office executives and coaches across the league. Worried and wondering how the handle loss of players at a position if they need to be replaced the waiting period what you understand is there and it could very well impact and influence this upcoming football season and before you want to these guests, we should also point out What the new Washington football team head coach Ron Rivera has had to put up with this season since he took that job in Washington in January. Think about what that organization has been through. They've been through a situation where they decided to lose their former name review. The events for a new name. Have the Washington Post come out with a long expose on all that's gone wrong in the culture that existed? Within that organization for years now and then, over the weekend, Of course, Washington football team sees its former second round draft pick Darius guys involved in a heinous act. Domestic violence and decides to release him, which Ron Rivera was the face of just Mork controversy surrounding that team and one coach who hasn't coached a single minute of a single game yet. It's had to deal with so many other issues, which again, I think goes to show you that sometimes an NFL being a head coach is way more than exes and Oh's. There's so much involved with being the face of an organisation, the CEO, unofficial CEO of a team and raro Vera has proven that so far this season. All right before we get into today's episode, I want to remind everyone with the much anticipated started the 2020 football season just around the corner..

Zion leaves NBA bubble for 'urgent' family matter

"All right one to turn to this story from inside the bubble, and it's a big one the Pelicans announcing yesterday the Williamson left the NBA bubble yesterday morning. Because of under undisclosed urgent family medical matter now Williamson intends to return at some point here's this coach Alvin Gentry. Don't know anything right now from the standpoint of. Coming back and you know obviously us. We've discussed supportive. Amina's family and their privacy doing this time right now, you know. We played forty four games without him and. You know we have top stretching, and we also had a stretch for. We won twelve out of sixteen. Without Him, so obviously, he's a great player that we'll miss, but the one thing that we've always talked about even when we went through times is that. Next Man. Marc Spears joins US live from inside the bubble at Disneyworld mark. Seems a little unclear as to why he left. What are you hearing about that about why he left at this point? Look the PELICANS are keeping it really really close to the vest, and they've been like that all all season. Way Him, you know this is still a teenager very very protective of their future star, and it's a family matter so I certainly understand that, but when it comes to him coming back, Ryan is really complicated. Absence of seven days or less, he s a quarantine. Four days upon return to the bubble with negative tests needed each day. Longer than a week. He has quarantine for four days. If he has a negative test the final day seven days he has gone. Without a required COA testing he will quarantine for ten days, so the Pelicans will debut. On July thirtieth they're one of four teams that play in the first day to resumption. It's not a lot of time between now, and then they have their first criminals, and just a few days, so yeah. The PELICANS certainly have a lot to worry about in their hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs, Yeah and we certainly wish Zion Williamson, and is it well with this family matter I mean that's first and foremost here hoping they're okay, but I look at this as well and I say without him. What are their chances of moving far into the playoffs structure? Like Alvin said you know. They played forty four games without him. Brandon Ingram the all star. He played most of those games at power forward. Without Zion, but once I came back. He only missed one game, and they have a stretch for by the name of Niccolo Meli. Not Not too hot says Zion has not the game design has I think the average is like seven games seven points a game. He would likely replace Zayn at power forward with Ingram staying in the small force spot, and I. Think drew holiday, said it best. He said you know. As much as it hurts to say, we've done it before in terms of playing without Zayn.

Waiting for Zion

"And Lopez covers the New Orleans Pelicans for ESPN Andrew. From the moment. That the Pelicans won the lottery landing the first overall Pick Zion Williamson was almost universally expected to walk in and be the face of the franchise really the face of basketball in the city of New Orleans. What did you think as you're watching the draft? Yes so I'll go back to the lottery with just two weeks. Prior to this the the newspaper I was working for got bought out. I was really in a state of flux personally. And then I remember when that Memphis logo came out of the number to envelop. The second pick will be made by the Memphis Grizzlies number one mic and the two thousand nineteen and it goes to the New Orleans. Pelicans and I realized Oh wait to turn to a buddy of mine who was sitting next to grabbed his arm and I was like Bro. I got a job like somebody. Who's going to hire me for this guy so it all kind of worked out? Because that night I I kind of started started the ball rolling with ESPN and ESPN hired me in August two covers ion and and do all this. It really change a lot in the city. I mean in the city itself. What the day after the they like three thousand or thirty five hundred season ticket packages? It was it was insane. You saw people walking around. It was June and July in New Orleans and you saw people walking around in Pelicans gear. That's saints time that we don't we don't do that down here. Really has changed a lot for Zion. Get down here and it's still hype is still the very real. Even though he hasn't actually played a regular season game yet right you were brought into covers ion you have not been covering Zion. Well not covering him on the court. He's practicing. He's been injured all year. What's his outlook like? Today is actually a very big day for Zaylon because the PELICANS still want to get him a a lot of five on five work. That's a big step in his recovery right now. The problem with that has been. They haven't had a lot of practice time to get there once. He was cleared the five on five work last week. He did it but then the pels had a stretch of five games in eight days where they didn't really get much practice time. You don't get a lot of practice time on the road so today's actually a big day where he's going to get a chance to get back out there and get some five on five work done. We don't know if it's going to be one more if it's going to be two. Who More practices? But we're we're getting close to the end game now. We don't have a date circled but we're getting close to win you. Know he'll finally make his his regular season debut debut. How many times have you said endgame since this is all begun a lot? That's been a fun word for me everywhere. You go in the city right now. Hello everybody wants to ask you. When's ion comeback wins? I on coming back coming back. Alvin Gentry told a story a couple of weeks ago. He's in Walmart and a lady on a scooter walked up to him. It's like hey I see coach. Once I on coming back everybody wants to know when the saints loss on that Sunday in the playoffs I have four or five. I people text me right after. Hey come back tomorrow right like this is going to get better for us as fans and I'm like sorry guys people are just waiting for this debut is As much as they can so enter this all goes back to the preseason. Zion makes his debut against the Atlanta Hawks. He delivers I not just one. But three earth-shattering stays again Joe. That's not normal. The normal shooting over the course of his first four games he averages more than twenty three points shooting seventy one point four percent from the floor floor and then the unthinkable happens breaking news just four days before Zion's NBA career was scheduled to start sign. We'll miss a period of weeks because because of a right knee injury usually when you have a meniscus injury any sort of neander you can kind of point to. Hey it happened at this moment right here. You can't do that with Zion. He doesn't know when he hurt the knee. The pelicans don't know when he heard the knee and that's not just a like a PR spin on it. Nobody nobody knows when he heard this thing. It's very possible. He played at least one or two games with a torn meniscus. I think he had what twenty two. And Ten in that last game against the Spurs and it was only after that game where he kind of went to the training staff and was like. Hey guys Monique on a hertz. Maybe we can get this checked out and they thought it was just a regular routine gene thing they go get the MRI done and they're like. Oh we have an issue here. There was no swelling. He didn't really feel that much pain. It was more like something doesn't feel right in the knee and that's how it kind of started. He was clean when they got him in. preseason they think it happened in preseason. It's also not anything anything that goes back to his time at Duke. There's no lingering things there or or in some and they think it happened in the preseason. They just don't know exactly when so so the news comes out. Everybody's a little bit confused. What happens next before they go to that? Last preseason game in New York the the knicks the PELICANS announce hey he's outright knee soreness and it takes a couple of days before we figure out what is exactly going on and in part of the reason for that was they wanted to get different opinions from different doctors. It took a weekend and then they announce. Hey Hey he's having surgery. He had the surgery this morning. Everything is good. We're looking at a six to eight week

"And as a result, they compromised your entire damn season me, while del Dempsey, and around as the questions, the front of the microphone and television cameras newer, as Ono, MRs Benson. Nobody Alvin gentry has left to hang out and dry. And they still want thirty three games they still played hardest hell. They still didn't appear to be a team devoid of the necessary intellect to medically or otherwise to know what they're doing when they went out there Alvin gentry in going thirty three and forty nine last year. Did hell of a job considering the circumstances? You took his alternate weapon away from them. You inundated with a bunch of belittle bureaucratic nonsense, that most people in this position should never have to deal with ever. That's what you did to our jittery. David griffin. Who's had a longstanding relationship with Alvin gentry gets the job comes in there and immediately recognizes a coaching change is not what we need here. And keeps Alvin gentry on board. I'm not only happy hour gentry. I'm proud of him. He did a hell of a job considering the circumstances. I would have liked him to be a list, little less truculent with the media, when he was answering some of these questions, who am I say, so I should be less drunk Hewlett, but you know what I'm saying. I mean, it's obvious what questions you're going to have to answer. But he did the best he could under very, very annoying and stressful circumstances 'cause he didn't know David Griffin was going to get the job. He didn't know that David Griffin, ultimately going to get the job. And then he ended up being kept on as head coach for all he knew he was on his way out the door because everybody knew that they'll definitely gonna be out the door, and it was the one who hired him. Yet and still Alvin gentry did his job. I think last year Alvin gentry tops in the past year before they want forty eight games went to the playoffs. He's been Phoenix two thousand two thousand ten when just what they want fifty four games. There were fifty four games and went to the conference finals. I got news for you Alvin gentry has had some success as a head coach. I'm here to tell you. He did the best that last year was his best job. Last year was his best job. So I think it's important understand what would dealing with here is important to understand what time it is. And it give respect where it's do when it comes to Alvin gentry and job that he's done and a good position at the New Orleans pelicans in because they got an organization. Well, we hear about the New York Knicks struggles and who they may or may not get, you know, why people a question that because they're question organization. Some people are questioning Steve mills. They all most of the questions about James Dolan, but Steve mills doesn't escape scrutiny. There are people who have asked about his relationship with Carmelo empty, there are people who have asked about what kind of job, he's done. So you gotta look at it from that perspective. I don't because I think do the job. But in all about Dollah, but clearly it's about the organization. Why nets considered the more attractive landings the Knicks because the organization was Shaw marks Kenny Atkinson. Why would a Lakers a joke until they acquired Anthony David because of the organization genie bustling letting Linda rampant and Kurt Rambis getting the mix rob Lincoln Asia to became a GM that Magic Johnson have the power to move. Organizations matter. And in all pelicans appear to have a first class one. Now David Griffin is in charge. Congratulations to him and Alvin gentry on the job that they've been doing thus far it has been the opin me of professionalism..

NBA Trade Rumors: Latest Rumblings on Anthony Davis

"When it comes to Anthony Davis. Let's be clear about something, this is an individual that knew that he was going towards a supermax contract if he had made all the all NBA team, all second team, a couple of years in a row, you know, was an MVP whatever the case may be the stipulations that come with being a super max the number one or two businesses that you can only get it from the team that drafts you. Okay. So when you look at it from that perspective for the most what anyway, so when you look at it from that perspective, this is a man, that knew he was going towards the supermax deca pay him in excess of two hundred and fifteen million in Lord knows if you saw didn't even long term deal could approach three hundred million dollars and the man made it clear he was willing to walk away. So if you made it clear, then, even before, David Griffin arrived, what would make you think he would change his mind? Now you have to take into consideration. It's not about David Griffin. It's not about Alvin gentry. It's about the fact that he may want to be in a different locale and people in New Orleans and other players just need to accept that everybody doesn't wanna be down in the big easy. I love it. Two restaurants. A fabulous. The crowd is amazing, the fans of fantastic. Put it ain't for everybody. And that's really the situation after the Davis has been there long enough to know what he wants and what he doesn't want. And if the man said that he wanted out, and he allowed that to be circulated in disseminated rather than trying to convince him. Otherwise, if you really want to move forward move forward by moving on from him and making sure you get the best package as you possibly can.

Nobody knew what was going to happen before we started reading off the names because hey, we knew this draft lottery was the most unpredictable they have ever held an NBA history. But the fact that everything went to chaos right away. And you had the Knicks and Lakers in the mix and the final four. But then they're not even the ones who get the top two picks the top pick to New Orleans. Pelicans zion. Williamson is now not only the beginning of changing for that team. He is going to be a valuable chip for GM David Griffin to try to use to keep Anthony Davis there. Here's why push back on that. Anthony Davis himself was a number one pick, and you know, the land the land here the guy wants out of town. He's been with an organization he doesn't think can win. I get designs a nice piece, but Davis has been that piece himself. Why would that change his opinion that I wanna go play somewhere else? Well, you're right. I mean, this is a guy who were that's all folks shirt his last game. So we know where his mindset is. However, they have made some changes to management there does really like coach Alvin gentry the fact that they are bringing in help in the shape of Zion. Williamson they hope is enough to convince him. Hey, why don't you just play out the rest of the year here? He doesn't control where he goes next. He can ask her trade, but they trade him anywhere, Scott and David Griffin can look at him and say, I'm in charge, and I'm gonna make things better for you than I if it works. We all exist in this space where we we see that people trafficking conspiracy theories in the Nixon the Lakers ended up with some version of one into the world would have freaked out. They end up getting at all. And as it turns out that three teams at the best chances that tried the least in the Knicks and the Cavs and the Suns three five six you can get nice players. But this is the least conspiracy slash rig kind of an outcome. We could possibly have gotten him, right? It's also a clear message to the entire league saying, hey tanking is not your ticket to attornal happiness. If you put on a badge show, it will in no way guarantee, you that good things are gonna happen down the road. We want teams that aren't good teams to get better. But not in that way. And I think that message was loud and clear tonight last quick thought, and all all these things are sort of seeing through the prism of Ziyad. And I I have to push back remind myself, he's still a kid. I know he looks like he's a young man. It was there any read as this plays out any realizes. Okay. It's New Orleans that's likely where I'm going to go. Are there any any read of like, okay? How did he react to that? At all. Yeah. I mean to me he kind of looked like he'd been hit by a truck. I understand that. When he woke up this morning Orleans was not what he was thinking. Maybe I'll have some as I actually got a chance to chat with him a little bit before all started. This is a kid who has such calmness about him. He is ready for the moment. And I'm sure once he resets his mindset to think. Okay, Norlin he's gonna say Benue sound pretty good. Let's see what happens next. They are. But you got you gotta be careful those I got reckless with some venues, it'll put you in a bad

"You look at what's going to come after the GM search, and once they nailed down who it's going to be an all likelihood Alvin gentry is as gone as well as the coach who who could the new GM target to be the coach. I think part of that depends on what direction they choose to go. If you are going to strip this thing down a little bit committee looked at trading drew and getting young players kind of building it back up through the draft. Then you need to get a development coach. And there's a handful of those guys around the league. But. Atlanta did last summer right there like drafting trae young young player in John Collins, good young talent on this roster. They go out and get peers from Philadelphia and help develop that group and said, hey, we want to give you a chance. Go get you know, maybe look at somebody on the Utah staff. They've got a fantastic development jobs, the Spurs again at developed talent for twenty years. I don't think Popovich is available. I guess, but I think maybe somebody their staff always gets interviewed you can find those guys if that's the direction you're gonna go. But if it's if the direction choice is, hey, we want to find somebody who can help us win. Now wanna be competitive more the path Indiana state, and and San Antonio traded qui- that's a different coach, then that's the next guy. And and you're looking at maybe some of the bigger names, maybe, you know, necessarily tie Lou. But there's a bunch of veteran guys out there who can come in runs stuff, and and helping win more right now. Now now Curtis is that where is there for run? A more of an I'm leaning upon you about the NBA were you want MBA experience are a hot college coach, you know, what I mean is that coming to? Teams in general right now, a really has an on college. Coach his it's there's some guys who look sometimes are able to transfer their skill set and worked very well. Obviously Brad Stevens is kind of the poster boy for that right now. But perfect Brad Stevens has a Fred Hoiberg. There's there's guys who. It's a very different world. Yes. So curr. What about like, Chris Mullin? Here's a guy played high level. He turned around Saint John. I'm I'm trying to recall with the warriors before he went to Saint John. Yeah. He was. Yeah. If he wants that kind of job if you want it, it would be he would be somebody to consider if you wanted to come out if you wanted to take the job, I don't know where Chris is in his point his career. I mean again, much like NFL coach versus college coach Lincoln. NFL coaches. A lot harder to do those kind of things. So I think he I'm not sure where Christie's, but those he would be an interesting choice because he got the the top to bottom understanding of of of how to make these kind of things work and as a coach and as a player any relate, look the kids relate your kids really turned the players relate to him. He's got highlights. And he's you know, he's got that hall of fame ring. That on the table, you at least get people's attention. Cordelia. We appreciate the time for Sherman. Thanks for the insight.

"Got some breaking news on Anthony Davis earlier today. Pelicans coach Alvin gentry asks for eighty status for tomorrow night against the Pacers. And gentry said he's playing tomorrow, which I mean is on its face, except Brian you, and I were both so surprised by this the week before the all star break had gone so poorly for everyone involved. He did suffer a minor injury. Didn't you think everyone was gonna find a way to slowly back out of the room on this one? Well, there has been renegotiation over the last few days. And apparently they haven't come to an understanding yet. Look, nobody's happy about this. Anthony Davis unhappy the pelicans aren't happy, Adam silver, even said, this is a bad situation. Now, I think it's they think can can there be a terms negotiated where frankly everybody can save face. In addition to the fact that you want to clean up the situation. I mean, honestly, I'm just starting to Anthony Davis drama. Gazan are going to the play offs make up your mind. What you want to do with this guy? You wanna plan you want to sit in like make up your mind how the players on the team and the coaches through. Like, I'm telling you organization and Anthony date make up your mind that y'all wanna do 'cause y'all are messing with us to figure this out it he did say Anthony Davis did say we can half ago. We don't know how feels today I want to play a basketball player. I don't want to sit for the next four months, plus the summer, and everything how would you feel if you were him would all this drama? Make you want to just go play go home and play pick up there. I mean, if I'm healthy I would wanna play. I don't want to sit down for four or five months and just work out. You know that entire time. So I have to give with the organization and find out what is best for myself and for this team and moving forward, you could see though like the first game that this arrangement was in place. Hillock like thirty four points in twenty five minutes. He was all gung ho and then the games went on. It started wearing on him and you could see his production going. Crunch time game. He had three points is ugly

"How does I'm happy for the guys play the game? And we want guys going to talk about the guys that play. They did a great job. We found a way to win the game. That's what's important. Alvin gentry using the term dumpster fire that upset me. Nice guy. He's a great, man. I really enjoy being able to work with him. But rob, what do you think about the way that Anthony Davis is going about all of this total mess Alvin gentry's one hundred percent light even for him? He was the coach who says I don't even know if he left to build it like really like the guy just did on his own. Here's the thing. I get it. He wants a trade people have a right? Ask for trade. That's that's that's not even in the conversation you ever, right? As though, but I'm saying would you have a right to ask for trait? But the wait it is gone on. I don't know what what. Rich, Paul him. AD actually thought was going to happen that the pelicans will going to just be like what our star player. Here we go. You wanna go to play the, and we're just gonna turn you over. And this is not going to be ugly break up, and you have a year and a half on your contract. You don't have this is not your final year and you won out. Also, you're the pelicans you're saying wait a minute last year, you Anthony Davis played great. They swept the first round playoff series against Portland and one again against the warriors in the second round. So so wait a minute. What happened from what we did last year to now you can't be here and two years almost a year and a half prior to your contract being up you want out and then when it's all public and whatnot. So yes, oughta fans going to be mad and boo. Yes. Did you just do a hand grenade on a pellet? Could season and their franchise. Yes. What are you expect the reaction to be and the way it's been so public now on the flip side just look at what happened with porzingas? Right. He wanted out of New York. Nobody really knew and then other than he didn't go to that exit interview with Phil. Bill jackson. Remember that? So that kind of gave you a little inkling that maybe something was going on there. But you didn't hear anything. It went from one day. Pausing on the Knicks to boom, he's traded. It's all done. He didn't want to be here. So we moved on. And I just didn't see that. Because it was the Rich Paul and LeBron and seemed like there was a plan or scheme or that was already being hatched that the reaction from New Orleans not to make him feel good makes total sense to me. I don't blame the pelicans for not wanting to just say, oh, yeah. You're walking out on this. And I'm gonna make all your dreams come true. And we're left with nothing. I look I'm without blame. The pelicans at all. I think all these people running around talking about the pelicans have messed this up. No, the pelicans did exactly what they should do which is wait until we can get all of the best offers this summer, then will make a move..

"Time all year is a New Orleans pelican where he is under contract for next season. And there's a player option after that. So with one year left to go and a player with a player option in his back pocket. That's usually right around summertime where deals can get made. And the New Orleans pelicans head coach I want to quote him directly here. I want to quote him directly here. This is this is a great quote in terms of wanting to trade, Anthony Davis, Alvin gentry had this to say on this front that there is nobody that would be a fair value on this front, and that they wouldn't trade him even for beyond say. Is she on the block? I don't know if she's on the block man to be very honest with you Jennifer Lopez off she's forever on the block, and that even be on say, quote, unquote, at the from Alvin gentry saying that when you have someone who you can trade for anyone it makes him the best or at least the most valuable. We're not even considering that we wouldn't trade him for anyone even beyond say, I think that makes him untouchable. Let me tell you. It's going to be on the Lakers either this year next year, Anthony Davis. Yeah. Why would the pelicans even do something like that? While with even consider something like that. Why wouldn't they gonna walk? Why they not gonna win it. He's gonna win anything there. So and he wants to be a huge market. He's with Rich, Paul and clutch sports. And not yet. He's he's left. He's well, he's already with them. Yes. So it's edible. He's going to end up. One of these big teams. There's Boston and Los Angeles both. These teams have been loading up. They have all the young assets to make a gigantic move. It's going to happen. What about the idea that nobody wants to play with LeBron because no I mean, let's let's put these pieces together here. Nobody wants to play with him. According to that bleach report story that recruiters. Been talking about lately, and we had him on to talk about is that nobody wants to throw their lot in with LeBron just to boost his legacy. Right. I totally see that. So why wouldn't Anthony Davis be considered in that regard because he still young? That he could sign some mega contract with the Lakers that exceeds LeBron's stay there and Avis twenty five years old, right? So LeBron would have three more years left on his Lakers deal, which obviously could get extended. And he would sign some monster contract. My favorite thing is when you read articles about this that it makes sense for him to stay in New Orleans. Not because of what they built last year. Not because he is the brow of New Orleans and. And is a beloved figure there perhaps surpassed only by drew Brees. And how many folks adore watching him play and watching him grow up in their system. And how last year they they were tough out. But this year they've been struggling. To the point of five hundred play. And now everybody thinks that he would wanna walk out the door. And when you read these articles, it makes sense for him to stay in New Orleans, not because of everything I just said, but because he can get the supermax contract there. Of almost two hundred and forty million bucks. But if he gets traded either he can sign a contract for two hundred nine million dollars. Just love those. I just love those sorts of. Oh, you know what I mean like is giving up. He's I mean when you're giving up thirty one million dollars. That's obviously a ton of money. But when the option is it's two hundred nine million dollars opposed to two hundred forty. I mean, how many yachts can you water ski behind to use the phrase from from Wall Street. So it really just comes down to his appetite for wanting to start his own thing and build it. They're going to be in Los Angeles. Do you wanna put the Brown, James it? I think that would be a simple. Yes, you're only twenty five figure will brand has what maybe five years max that. But you at thirty you still have your own five six seven eight more years left. It's it just makes too much sense to me Brian win horse to wrote that if he wants to come to Los Angeles and be a Laker..

"Of my next questions here how much credit has to go to albany gentry memories from that kerr tree or at least he you know he kurz coached with kurt over there in steve has nothing but great things to say about the guy i don't think he gets enough credit here i don't think he gets enough credit nationally this is gentry system that's now blossomed into this league's fastest pace of play system i think gentry terrific job and it's kind of funny how we want to talk about like natural perceptions of guy earlier during the season in the past i'm you know people kind of thinking oh is gentry going to be one of these coaches on the hockey we've always make a list of like coca who could be on the hot feet coming up and you kind of always see alvin gentry's name on those but i i have to think after performance this even even if they get blown out by the warriors in the second round with still and what i have to think is going to happen just because the warriors so good you have to look at alvin gentry job especially with losing demarcus cousins halfway into the season you have to give him a lot of credit because he's the story of the series of it's not rondo it's him especially the first couple of games is he now the best to way guardless take awhile in and out because he hasn't played this year so i wanna take him out he the best to guard in the league right now he the best defensive perimeter player in the league right now what are we counting paul george recounting him as a guard because i i still think paul george when he's healthy may you coming back from this injury right now but you meet butler i think would probably still be in that conversation as well but yeah jrue holiday and this isn't a new thing this is kind of what he's been doing for a long time and you're over the years he has been dealing with different injuries and maybe hasn't played in that game then obviously last season he had the the situation with his wife and her health where he missed a big chunk of the season and so.
