"Head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans. So David Griffin has his next man to lead Zion Williamson. Last year. It was Stan Van Gundy the year before that it was Alvin Gentry. It's just now going to be the third head coach that Zion Williamson is going to have his third year in the league. Now, when you look at Willie Green Clearly has an extensive basketball background was in Philly, the Hornets in New Orleans. Atlanta. Play with the Clippers was with Orlando as a player the last few years, though, because just because you're a former player doesn't mean that you're going to be a great coach. You want to see what experience? Yes. Sometimes guys have a lot of experience. Sometimes guys have no experience. Willie Green was on the Golden State Warriors staff 2016 2019. And Is on the sun staff, too. Currently So this is someone That has been around the league now for a while. And Yeah. I don't know how

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

"To that and that if that's your blueprint here for him and great, I think that you're gonna have a couple of nervous, anxious moments where Alvin Gentry is going to go. He wants to play. He's played 24 a half. All right. Well, even in another minute But I wonder if there's a sliding scale to this at all. Because Alvin Gentry Game one was upset. You could tell he's upset after the game because he's stuck to the minutes, the doctor said, but do the doctor's alter their decision based off. Competitive nature of the team. Do they need this game or not? Or do they go in and say Here's our number? It cannot be floated. It cannot be changed even if you need him for 10 more minutes. But I think it's going to change almost quarter to quarter with him but it but it shouldn't know doesn't mean he's not the same person was four days ago. Based on what I was told when I said Hey, you know you're going to play in three minutes at a time. I think he's got a better chance or worse chance of getting injured by playing in a short burst because he's going to want to try to do too much. I'd rather that he pays himself that doesn't look in great shape, but he's such a phenomenal athlete, and he just plays this bully ball. He's going at you. You may block it the first time he's going to get it and he's going to put it back in. It's just so powerful inside, but if you get any kind of consistency it Brandon Ingram is great. And you got Zion Lonzo Ball can hit some three pointers. Reddick provides some damage there. No, they're going to be tough. You know these young teams, they're tough. Lakers Lakers got an old team. Yeah, I think it's Jeff Van Gundy, who has talked about how one of the reasons he thinks Zion needs to be in better shape is to run the break. He said that nobody wants to get in front of him on the break. People will move out of his way like they do the past five years with LeBron You see LeBron in the break. Sometimes he just goes. Write down because no one wants a piece of £665. He just He doesn't look in shape and I understand why they wanted limit his minutes. But I think that they're going to roll the dice here and you're probably going to get into a situation where you play, maybe a little more than you had planned to. Might make 11. What's poll question We're going to go with. Well. I put up for the first hour poll question just to see if anyone copied it. Whose career would you rather want? Jim told me or Ben Zobrist, which a lot of shows they're going with. We need to change that because it was applicability first hour for a little while. I was just talking about Mike trout. He may end his career and really almost like a Ted Williams career, where he has nothing to show for it in the postseason. Okay, Tony, 1 73 Thank you. Stop first. Tomi is awesome, but it wasthe night moving Paulius. Do you want to see if you hate the Lakers than lose in the first round or losing the MBA Finals? Game seven by we do a lot of people hate the Lakers. I wasn't sure. They're in that Notre Dame Duke category, Right? I think it comes down to LeBron. I I don't know. You look at this Laker team and stable. I don't like them. It comes down to you either, Like LeBron or you don't. And I don't know of any other player where you go. There's so many people rooting for and so many people rooting against. You would probably have that with LeBron Welsh and TV's Caldwell Pope Tio. Yeah, of course. Yeah, Absolutely. Yeah. Very polarizing. Yes, absolutely. Yes. So how would you? What do you think people would answer that? I have no idea. But she I mean, you don't hate the Lakers are I think people would love to see them Go at the first round. I think they'd be like Ah, we told you kind of a Well, you know where the main sports station in Los Angeles and I'm going to guess that those people they love their Lakers. They want to see them. At least go to the embassy finals. For us a big in Portland, though. Yes, we are. But there's more people in L a than Portland. We're huge in Portland. But If Portland they probably would. I'm going to guess. First round Because if long, LeBron gets back to another N ba finals, how many would that be for him? Oh, that'd be 10. The fact that we don't know And I know people go. Yeah, but he lost like you. Just to get there. It should be an accomplishment and achievement. Something to be proud of. But For so many years. If you got to the Super Bowl and lost, you basically had a bad season. Yeah, but you lost in the Superbowl by 21. We got to the Super Bowl. But LeBron got there. Yes, it is a shame like with Jim Kelly and the bills that more people don't say you want the NFC championship four times in a row. You've got the Super Bowl, but you'll never hear that. If they want to. Of those if they went to, and to We would look at Jim Kelly differently. Those Buffalo Bill's differently We would talk about them is a baby dynasty of what was almost a dynasty. Or maybe it was a dynasty going to four Super Bowls. They want to We'd look at him differently. But we do not give them credit that they went to four in a row. Yeah, but they lost. Okay? You know, I look at Brady that if you're going to go to nine Super bowls Me..

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.

"Choppy first out because of how the game flows for him is minutes ugh I was glad that he got an extended run and had some extended success I was in a really happy for that young man he he needed it and New Orleans needs a going forward just how hard is it in that moment for Alvin gentry I'm sure they had a plan and I'm sure you want to manage the minutes but I mean in that moment he's playing out of his mind you've got to leave I mean how hard in that moment as if to say it's time to sit down well again I I don't really know the science behind it all okay weather was fatigue or again I think only if you're on the inside you know or if he really has to set or was a choice but I think Alvin gentry he was under siege for like two minutes it wasn't just at the end because he was trying to get him out actually mark made the point he call for lawns of all the call time out and ball didn't not because I don't think you heard him and they kept plan and so he was on this special role in it just it's unfortunate that it couldn't continue because as you mentioned the building was electric and they were in position to win the game here's our most interested in Jeff because I think that the physical attributes and skills are obvious in their intoxicating but but you're a guy who's acting as a coach I respect so much and your eyes have seen plenty when you look at him beyond the obvious beyond the while in the dogs and this and that what is he what does he possess the you see the gives you an indication of what he might be I love the vision in the passing the quickness of the second jump the jump shot I don't know I haven't seen him enough to know exactly what he is as a player obviously it's not going to be that type of jump shooting from the three point line but he's going to have to be a reasonable jump shooter and then I think so much of this game.

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..

"Joining us now Stephen Smith from the show. I take in basically everything else related to ESPN. Steven. Thanks for being with us this morning. Your initial reaction that Anthony Davis is a Laker. The Lakers are now the favorites according to Caesar's to win the NBA title. Do do you think that, that move is enough considering the injuries that is a likely scenario? Well, the move is not enough. You still got to build a team, but I definitely would took them before. But you can't ignore teams like Denver in Houston. You certainly believe this will be the end of Golden State's five-year run to the NBA finals. But I think if enter diabled, oh, that the combination of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Definitely should. Put the Lakers back in the elite position of the one of the final four teams in the NBA championship next year, I can go with that, as far as the free agency coming up Stephen, even with the injuries to clay and Durant. Was there really any more than the thought that all the Lakers could maybe get was a Kemba Walker in your mind does that change at all? Well, I think the situation was that they have to get Anthony Davis because not one single market fee agent in this upcoming class was talking about going to the Los Angeles Lakers, Kyrenia was thinking, New York, or depending on what k- be elected to KB was thinking what to do. Your teams clearly Kawai. Let it was presumably going to be two to Los Angeles, Clippers and Kemba Walker was going to go either stay in Charlotte on go to New York. If Katie wanted them there and Cairo decided to stay in Brooklyn, and so the Lakers warned upon the equation anymore, Kishi agent, nobody was talking about the senate's of Lee coming there, because anywhere else gonna be a package deal. So pretty much the other guys. And that's why the Lakers had to make sure they went all in on that basis. They add to get a Doug because if they didn't get it done, then it was going to be nobody else with the blonde James on. Elite level. And that's why this was so quizzical talking to Stephen a Smith, host of the Stephen Smith show, ESPN radio on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Stephen, what about on the other side right now? How much you expect from the pelicans we knew long-term this deal is set up really well for them. But what kind of team do you think they can be with the potential of Zion Williamson with that number one overall pick? Going to be Ed great Vichy. I think that David Griffin and, and Alvin gentry building something gentry is gonna be an exceptional coach David Griffin, obviously exceptional executive with a championship pedigree. We know that he knows what he is doing. And as a result, you've got a young team guys, we still got you holiday who at least last he's a wanted to be out who knows what feelings are right now. But he's definitely an asset that a lot of teams would covet any event that he moves on. And so you have that alone with three first round picks including the upcoming number four overall pick. They've got the makings of a young team that's going to be exciting obviously I l Williams and is going to make noise in the us to come but to expect anything from them in the way of wins immediately. I think that's pushing it to, to, to be quite honest with you. I'd be surprised if they won more than thirty two thirty three games, we're going to add onto that even a fit with us on the shell. Pennzoil performance line taking synthetic motor oil performance a whole new level. Make the switch to Pennzoil synthetics today. So we always talk about winners and losers of trade. But quite honestly, both teams could be successful knowing the pedigrees, we know for the Lakers, this has to end in an NBA championship to say it was a successful move. So for New Orleans while I think we all agree. They're not going to be great this year. What will have to happen in the future because of this trade that will you could look back and say this trade was successful. Well, I think you can already say it was successful. Because I think when you acquired a number four overall pick you're going to sit up there and get die on Williamson with the number one overall pick. You've got a point guard and Lonzo ball. Lightning has commended attention my knocking gets along. Lonzo ball was always black of aggression, more so than anything else I found a number two overall pick from a couple of years ago to be an individual content driven the ball past half court and passing it to somebody else. And I think you. Needs to be considerably more aggressive when you're sitting in supposed to be the orchestration of, of Showtime it. So when I look at it from that perspective having Lonzo Josh heart as a player that I've always like he can play and, and obviously than England. Those blood clots situation works out, visit tremendous upside to him as well. So you take all of those things into account, you've got three guys that know how to play you guys I on Williamson box office, and he's a man child because you can't teach two hundred and eighty pounds. I don't care what anybody says, and then also you've got the number four overall pick with expected to be a guy, the likes of Darius gaulan out of Vanderbilt David Griffin decides to go in a different direction. Guy me, and all of this, that it was pretty much the same exact deal that Magic Johnson offered New Orleans, but del dense, then the executive is all pelicans from what I was told with us to accept it because he was so fixated on how Rich Paul. Lebron James Anthony Davis of those guys you all. Well, the was so fixated on how, which Paul had elected to handle things that he was incredibly reluctant to make a deal with the loss, edulis Lakers. And that's why he's on the outside looking in the longer having that job. And David Griffin general manager, recognizing the fact that Anthony Davis had pretty much restricted them. The New Yorker LA made the best deal that was available to him didn't get called coups, but got three first round picks along with replace the only shocking, there was that calicoes mistake everyone everyone else's going. Stephen a Smith is with us, Cevdet wanna talk to you about the rockets a little bit because there's an article now by Tim McMahon on ESPN dot com, talking friction between James harden, Chris Paul, and Daryl Morey, the gentleman, who's going to join us, by the way, in about thirty minutes has said he's willing to do anything to try and figure out a way not only to get past the warriors, which might not be as much of a problem now that both clay and Katie might not be there for majority. Of the season. But what do you see what realistically might change with Houston? Well, I definitely think by these could change. I definitely think that's a situation. We don't know what's going to happen. But you know I reported last week that, you know, Chris Paul from what I was being told on your circumstances, he would like to go from Houston. We haven't heard from Chris bowl whatever. But I had that on very reliable sources that if he could move on. He would not mind moving on that doesn't mean he's hold out refuse to show up to do his job for the Houston Rockets, but in a perfect world, the situation is not ideal, and he would like to move on. We all heard the stories about contracts de installed with us to rockets and, and my dad, Tony because from what I was told ownership offered. Mike Tony, okay? You want a contract extension idea five million dollars a million dollars. Each round that you end up winning needs to be incentive based because you had an opportunity to win and that really hasn't taken place one game. You've got. To a conference to conference any finals? But that's not good enough. And I think the own told story all of that people are not paying enough attention to guys. Everybody's fixated on Daryl Morey Darryl Moore. He's the face jive and obviously hide might Tony. He acquired James harden years ago, blah, blah, blah, Daryl Morey, as an exceptional executive is no question. But he is somebody and that is to own until miss Tita who, by the way, inherited a lot of stuff. He as the new owner of the Houston Rockets, just picking up ownership a couple of years ago wanted to feel his way through things, but make no mistake about it. He is not the God that picked my dad Tony years. Not the God that decided to give Chris Paul that money list, Alexander the previous owner for the Houston Rockets made these decisions and made these promises and sativa Hata owner it. So a lot of people are caught up in the dollar. Percents thinking about luxury taxes and all the other stuff. That's not the problem. The problem is to miss Tita doesn't believe in the swat that he has constructed at certainly not what my been Tony coaching it. So the change that has to be taken place someplace, some way you change some components on the roster or you're going to change the head coach and that's really what's going on and Houston. Daryl Morey, he can choose to be open and honest about it. He could choose to be a vase of when he comes home with y'all that's his business and he can do what he wants to do. I'm telling you what's going on. And it's one of those situations with something's going to happen. Give I've been hearing that the Houston Rockets, James harden, rather himself, and Jimmy Butler have been communicating tremendously. So, and so that's something Jimmy Butler, would consider ultimately, going to Houston, my response to that would be. Hey, talking to players and hearing that scuttle. But I don't think that's an ideal place. Jimmy butler. It's not an ideal person to have if you the Houston Rockets, presently constructed, because Mike, Tony lights giving the ball James harden running every single thing through him. Keep in mind that Jimmy Butler actually played point guard for you to a vast majority of the players because Brown Philadelphia new Vincent. It's gonna shoot a perimeter shot. And he needed somebody handling the ball that could be a perimeter threat. So Jimmy Butler and not only that it was primarily in the fourth quarter. So Jimmy Butler is not used to standing around and wait and see what a guy like James harden with decide to do, and that doesn't take into account. Chris Paul, the component that that's going to bring to the table. So if you Chris Paul, you can't like that with so much, if you Jimmy Butler, you damn show ain't gonna like that based on your personality. But if you Houston Rockets, you've good successful, at least some degree, that's for doing exactly what my Tony wanted to do with James harden. It does not work. Something's gonna have to give. I don't know what it is. But Daryl Morey is more than a stoop to make the right decision in that regard. And we will ask them that when we have a next even thanks for being with us. We appreciate it. Saving taking got coming up. One man here, thanks. We might have already seen the peak of tiger. Woods come back to that after this, you know, that feeling where your team scores goal in extra time wins.

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.

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.

Anthony Davis will play rest of the season

"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

"Don't know if he left the building. No, that's then then he left the building. I'm happy for the guys that you know that played the game. And we want to tell you the truth. You know, this whole thing has been a dumpster fire. Did the gel? From North Carolina. These sites of NBA also retail. We have all kinds of the gas coming by today. Then Simmons is gonna hang soup bird will be here mantras zero miles bridges, but we're starting right here on set with our NBA insider Adrian merge announced he two thousand three NBA camp. Stephen Jackson, two thousand four NBA champ Rushie Wallace, the people Noah time, it is a hundred percent, right. You guys all heard at the top of the show Alvin gentry called the whole situation with the pelicans and Anthony Davis a quote dumpster fire. Not what you want from your coach that was after Anthony Davis suffered a shoulder injury during last night's game. Which was fortunately, not found to be serious. But he was ruled out for the rest of the game eighty then left the arena with his agent Rich Paul while the game was still going on that caused a lot of confusion. I actually just spoke to rich. He's here in the building with us. And he said a was leaving to get an MRI. Why since they don't have an MRI machine in the building. And this was under the direction of the team physician, but nobody on the medical staff told Alvin gentry I don't know of anyone told del devs because this morning, you sent shockwaves through the NBA with the news that the pelicans have indeed fired general manager del Dem's, the pelicans one one playoff series and Dem's entire nine year term with the team. So we've had discussions about his job security for a few seasons. Now what made it happen today? Well, the his dismissal was inevitable in this off season. It was coming and they had already started to get a sense of possible candidates names. My sense was this was going to wait until after the all star break. I do think the events of last night sped it up. But this was coming and their goal of this organization now is to this. Anthony Davis trade will be the most important decision going for this team. It's going to impact them for a decade to come. What do they get back for him? Then who gonna get back? Draft picks and who's going to select those players and who's going to set a new course for this organization. And so they're out in the marketplace or the first team in the league who's out in the marketplace looking for a new GM, and I'm told they're going to be willing to spend and they're going to be aggressive to try to bring in a high profile or whether it's a high profile or certainly a high performing GM candidate. I mean, this is a team that is owned by the Benson family. Gale Benson is running the team. Now this saints are their main opposition. And there's been a feeling in the NBA the pelicans in minute a little bit of a step child. Are you saying that they're going to take a more active approach when you say they're willing to spend hire an experienced GM? Also, I do think they've spent on salary there. They've Alvin gentry makes a competitive in base salary and a smaller market. I don't think it's been spending. I think they've been the decisions that Dell has has made to try and surround Anthony Davis with a supporting cast that was sustainable long-term. Listen, they've missed on a lot of draft picks free agent signings. Go back to MIR Arctic Solomon hill. They've overpaid for players who haven't performed and then go back to the DeMarcus cousins trade they have really nothing to show for it. And they traded a young player in buddy healed who if you put him on this team right now, you know, he'd he'd help solve a lot of their problems. So I think structurally and how the roster's been built how they've drafted develop players. These have all been issues, and it all came to a head here almost a decade with an organization into only Vance in the playoffs..

"Though, is always a good thing. Trae rumors. That's why everybody always says. Means you have value. And I mean. You're going to be in this league longtime. I saw the report. You wonder what that might mean for you? No, not really. Great spins on by him. Yeah. You're about to trade Kyle Kuzma Lakers forward. One of the guys. It's actually been playing well enough to be a tradable asset. Yeah. Go ahead and spins on that thing. But again when you're the pelicans, and you're trying to figure out ways to spins on this. And maybe give your fans some relief in this and you sit around and you're trying to come up with this concept. You get lost in your own world a little bit. And you need the common sense kid at the end of the conveyor belt to all of a sudden look up when you're about to do. So guys, you realize this is going to bring a bunch of undue attention on us on the players, the coaches that they are already dealing with at a level that is too much already dealing with in a way that is counter to winning and all of this. So common sense. Let's apply. Some to this situation. It shouldn't be that difficult. We don't need to make it more difficult than is. And we need to stop making it so damn difficult for Alvin gentry. I think in all of this. I become an Alvin gentry stand in a way that I was not fully prepared for when all this got started.

"Game that he's part of the team he was pretty noticeably absent from the pre-game video he was not on the bench in the fourth quarter. The honest with somebody says, I I don't I have never even seen video. I really haven't. And I'm not avoiding anything. But I mean. I couldn't tell you who was on an who's nothing. So. What it is right in the locker room. When I walked any within the locker room. So that's the other thing. I don't look down the bench and see who's on the bench and who's not. So I think we're making more of a big deal out of it that it is. I don't think there's anything as I said still talk to all the guys he was building there became in. So. That's what I know. So whatever you guys want to write out of that. You gotta do it. You gotta do you. Gotta do what you gotta do. But I think you're you're reaching a little bit. Maybe the part about a D being in the locker room in the fourth quarter. But the hype video. Davis is still out with a finger finger fracture. But he sat on the end of the bench in the first three quarters. He was in on the timeout huddles cheering on teammates is absence in the video could though be leading to something bigger. Davis has not spoken publicly since his trade request. But he's expected to address reporters after the team practices on Friday. He's due to return from his injury in the coming days. But when his coach Alvin gentry was asked Alvin gentry was asked pre-game on Wednesday f Davis would play another game for the pelicans. Once he's cleared gentry said, he was unsure. That's a hard thing to answer. I really don't know how to answer that. I assume he will. That's something that will obviously have to be discussed about what's best for him. And what's best for our team? Unclear answer about whether AD would play for the pelicans again. And then he's missing from the teams hype video. Boston L A. Of course, the two destinations most often discussed when talking about a possible landing spot for Anthony Davis, Boston, of course, can't do anything until July first. But what about Kyrie heading west and reuniting with LeBron earlier on the job? Like, he.

"It's been that way for damn near ten years. The depth in the Western Conference is far as the guards is is absurd disappeared front court. Maybe one more again because if Davis is out Yokich towns Aldridge, I think make it the remaining guys. There's obviously dream on Tobias Harris, Julius Randle. New Orleans suck so bad. When you have three guy. Davis is absolutely Andrew holidays at over twenty points per game. His third the league in assists. And like we talked about yesterday Reynolds at twenty points in double digit rebounds, heritage when he's healthy. Let's go Alvin gentry. But anyway. Sucks. Defense exactly. Defense defense or they say down there. E. He fenced solid. Very good defensively. They just you know, they deride four guys and get your twenty-five at any given night. All those guys are are really really talented scores Elwin the pelicans came here week or so ago, teach Limbaugh was on hidden fire. He was rolling this cord one forty you gotta win. Given you score one forty. They lost by seventy one forty seven to one forty. It was the first time. I can't remember the exact date, but first time in a long time that a team in regulation scored one forty and lost. It's been years. I can't remember the exact warriors dangerous. But when you score one forty you winning basketball. Would've basketball game one forty that's and that's of the the pelicans. They just you'll look up. That's thirty five points a quarter. That's like come on. You're rolling. That's the Pels. Yeah. That's the Pels. But anyway, my point in bringing that up was. Draymond in by his own admission and Steve Kerr said yesterday as well, maybe doesn't make it. But with Davis potentially out of there, would you pick Tobias Harris Randall cappella atoms when you put him at the top her too. Yeah. That's true. Kabila's her to right. Was that a thumb or something? Yeah. But anyway, so. Yeah. Okay. So Capellas other. So now, you're looking at Harris Randall Adams, those are probably the best. And again, I'm putting Aldridge towns. Yokich Davis Davis is probably out so one to two upfront that you're gonna grab like Harrison. I would put his on there. The clippers played pretty good. And I don't know that they're not gonna have another all star. He'd be there guy. So I yeah, I could see I I think Harris should make it. I think he played really well for them. So, oh, you know, something I don't think we can play. Audio is because it doesn't show the funniest part of it. Audio wise did anybody here. See the. Papa Papa Papa Blake Griffin. Reggie. Yes. The hell Jackson Jackson. I couldn't think of his last name Blake Griffin's asked at the end of a game. Gotta be happy about the wind. Don't you? And Blake says paraphrasing here, we're not really, you know, I just I wish would focus more at the end of the games were were losing games. And we should be more focus than what we're doing out here. So I wish I was happy, but we got the win. But we gotta figure out a way to clean this stuff up. And so he's like being serious about his teammates, not being focused not executing at the end of the games. And here comes Reggie Jackson who slides in-between, the reporter and Blake Griffin and. Thirds mugging to the camera like data. I forget what would you what he was doing? But he's mugging to the camera. Having a good time posing, vogue, ING, whatever. And play. Is just looking at my. And then he just like walks off like he didn't know would Blake was talking about. He didn't realize it was like he was being serious. He he he was. So you couldn't even see the report of the guy asking the questions and Griffin because he went right between him, and instead there and kind of made some goofy faces at the camera will Blake was still saying that dude. Was like. Read the room read, the real. And unfortunately, you could play the sound. But you wouldn't. I mean, the really the real pop if you go look it up on YouTube is Reggie Jackson just cutting in the middle and lake mugging to the camera while Blake's trying to be serious about their failures. Layton games. I was dying on that one. That was pretty funny. Yeah. Like. Oh, Roby Coleman. Find by the NFL for late hit. On a play the flag, and you know the. By the way, that is so transparent. The league is sitting there going. Okay. We gotta do something. What can we do to? I mean saving faces the wrong word 'cause they're never gonna save face on this whole thing. But it's like we'll find him come on look over here. Look over here. That's not going to work in the fines seem to be. Is he'd to be exorbitant like NFL twenty seven thousand dollars seven grand? Wow. Well, not twenty seven twenty six thousand seven hundred thirty nine eight who comes around it up or. Yeah. Rounded up around it down one or the other, and we didn't call it. He was so agreed that we're gonna we're gonna find you almost twenty seven thousand dollars. What we missed it. How much we missed it. Look if you miss something that bad, you shouldn't even find the guy you should find the official. Don't find the guy was it a bad. Yeah. Of course, we all know, we'll get into it. But the fact that there. A decent amount of money. I didn't think he made that much makes two point one million. Okay. It's still hurts. Twenty seven grand salute. Our care who you are. Nickel think they called him? Did he changed his name nickel nickel back? That's why Nickell Robey Coleman. I didn't realize he was five seven one sixty five tiny. Anyway. Yeah. I wouldn't care. We'll find you. I wouldn't flag you, but we'll find you. That's ridiculous. Check out loud. That is look what we did. Our not still about a piece. In fact, I think I read another story we look this up. I think read another story about New Orleans crying. It's stop just stop it. Thing. I'll find it. Yeah. There was another story on them getting it trying to do something else today. Oh, Louisiana Senator blast Roger Goodell and Senate floor for staying silent after AFC championship missed call. Can you imagine that you're on the Senate floor the Senate floor, and you're blasting Roger Goodell. Stop it that seems really we're just any government shutdown. Can we kinda focus a little a little? You tell your on the Senate floor stop. We don't care. Yeah. Come on. With the representatives from California do shed up come on. I like the photos the photos were nice touch. Not as nice as the one kid will do a science project a bunch of pictures that the patriots and Tom Brady showing that Tom Brady is a cheater because of Deflategate, and I guess he wants them award for a science project. I wanna I wanna say kid. Let it go. It. It's been a while. Now. Elaine, let that was. But I love the fact he went after for his science project. Kennedy go with this. I'm going to show you why why he tweeted in? Why those balls were manipulated? I'm gonna do it scientifically. I didn't let this one go. I mean, this guy is the kid from anyway, I mean, did you have money on the cold? Wagering when he was seven. Money on a young Tom Dovers? Not that go. I'm not letting your child. Do we have the Senator of sound the Senator? With the seriousness of that. I also want to dress one other issue, which is particularly serious to folks in Louisiana. And I hope it doesn't seem out of place with the shutdown. But is the folks back home is something which continues to disturb them. Here comes the grandstanding, Mr President. I like to bring up the NFC championship game. The state of the wheezy Anna is outraged because of what happened in the Superdome. Last Sunday televisions were broken super boy Super Bowl boycott concert scheduled billboards put up in Atlanta fans lawsuits fans filed lawsuits my colleague in the house of Representative is calling for the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to come testify in front of congress on the travesty that occurred five days ago as soon as you said as soon as you said, I hope this isn't seem out of place. Oh, it's out of place. You know, what we need plays period? You're out of order. She's out of order. This whole court is out of order. Bee's met there to play violin? Stop it. Stop the grandstanding. We know what you're doing. You don't care. It's just you're the Senator you're gonna go back when you're I don't know what he's he's gotta be up for reelection soon. Because he's grandstanding. Look what I did look what I did voters shut up a man of the people tax reform. Plus, I don't know how the the the Senate floor works. Nobody can stand up and go shut up. Nobody can say anything like what did you have the floor of the floor. No, one can interrupt you stop it. Honestly. If I mean, we just ended a government shutdown. We stop it. South those now. On Sunday night during the NFL championship game. What does what flake the congressman? I hope this place. No way George Brett pine tar was that far. But where? That should have been a home run. It should have. It's just keep going back. Like if these guys knew about sports, unfortunately, most congress people I think, you know, what they are the the contestants on jeopardy the pic every sports category. Last call them nerds. Let's check on that. It's between it's between hydrogen on Neptune and famous Lakers. Oh can be hydrogen on four hundred twenties. Come on. Are you kidding me famous? Laker these the. And you can get that. He makes the play down. Okay. Let's let's scan the saints are in position to score. And drew Brees throws a pass, which is right there. There's the ball. There's the receiver and there's a defender for those not familiar with football. And I know that the presiding at university of Arkansas bad school, even though it's not a Louisiana school. Wow. The defender is not looking back at the quarterback. He is not looking to intercept. He's only looking to plow through the receiver. Now every drunk sitting on a stool in every bar throughout the national relate to that birthday party. There's interference one thing. You don't see from. This picture though, is there was also helmet. To helmet contact which is also a penalty. It was a twofer on one. The Los Angeles Rams defender committed to agree shes penalties and everybody the Superdome and everybody watching knew what happened except for him. The referee. Now, I don't mean to pick on this referendum. Okay. That's you don't mean to pick on. Couple of days ago, you when this happened. I was sympathetic. I'll fan bases have gone through. This. You got screwed. I wanna be sympathetic. But now, it's like, you're annoying. Get out too bad. I hope it happens again. And again, you've I liked your breeze. But all of a sudden, you've become almost least favorite team like stop it. I hope it happens again. And again stop. Another congressman can't do anything. Like once. He has the floor. It must be it. 'cause you gotta believe like other guys are going really would have been awesome. Somebody would stood up and said congressman the fourteenth district, California. Look, we just there is no way. They're ready Jackson and not poke his ass out on that ball, the seventy eight World Series. There's just no way. I don't care what he says that he did that on purpose and Lasorda had every right to go out there and argue with Dutch Renner over the hell else was out there. I have no idea. Nice pool, by the way. Pulling old empire from the seventies. Solid. He did it. I know he did it. And they I would love every like every person like anybody that knew anything about sports just stand up and just fire something off they could have been anything from your stay sane could have been danger. You could have been that when maybe are gray with the strikes on that he had with Livan Hernandez. If you're from Cleveland, your dislike I submit that those were not strikes. Most of them weren't even close to being strikes. And I have no idea what gray was saying. In fact, I'd go get a driver's test right now, and he's still alive it probably wouldn't let him drive, and then they go away. I don't know. What else? What else? Do you want? They might be pushing the low every state. Some of the northeastern states like New Hampshire something, maybe maybe they got screwed. But Alaska, maybe couldn't do it. But I bet like I bet about forty of the state's easily could stand up and say we were screwed into today easily..

"While star. We respect the hell out of the Moro's and who can play, but Kawhi Leonard is certainly on another level. So with that in mind, what does the San Antonio Spurs? Do we ain't gonna get equal value for Kawara Linnet? But we to do is we're going to get D'amoto Rosen. A perennial twenty point per game. All star put it with Rudy gay put him with lamarcus Aldridge. We're respectable team. We're not gonna fall off the map. And essentially, that's what you have. Why is that a problem for team like the Lakers who wants and needs Anthony Davis right now because what you have is an example set forth by the San Antonio Spurs who basically was the team that did not capitulate to the wishes of it superstar. Yeah. You one out year? You don't wanna be here any longer? You don't wanna be a San Antonio Spurs. But we'll be dead. We just going to send you to the Lakers. We have your rights that we don't make sure we give value for you. And that's what they did. What do you think? The pelicans are going to do. What do you think of the teams throughout the league want the pelicans to do? As much as we might fantasize. And and salivate over the possibility of Anthony Davis teaming with LeBron because he's not a free agent until twenty twenty.

"Free agency. Anthony Davis will look to get traded, even though Alvin gentry has been on record saying, we wouldn't even trade him for beyond say. And then of course you have a wild Linnet who's going to be a free agent looking to get out Willie wanna, stay in Toronto or Willie want to move on. I wanted the LA teams and we also have Klay Thompson who swears he wants to stay Golden State. But there was no extension side, which means that he is going to be a free as well. So we got Kevin Durant. We got Klay Thompson, we got a wild landed. We got curry Irving. And who knows if Anthony Davis is gonna ask to be trade. That's what we have that what we're looking at going on. Who are it simple. That's what we're looking at. That's what we're looking at. And so when we understand it for an perspective, the question bags. Hey, who should New York want the most and who should LeBron James in LA want the most. Because you see for me, if it's New York, it's Kevin Durant. If it's the Lakers it's Klay Thompson. It Klay Thompson. And to me if Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant, both ended up leaving to state which I really doubt will happen, then it makes it even more imperative that Golden State gets themselves and Anthony Davis. Because Anthony Davis would Steph curry and Draymond green might make up for the loss of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, at least degree. I don't think it will, but it could. And I don't even think to taste gonna lose both of them. I just don't think both of them are saying. And I don't want to hear anything about Kevin Durant going to the Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James because it wouldn't be fair to basketball. I might stop watching the NBA for year in protests that happen. I'm trying to tell you right now, and that's how disgusted I would be. I might stop watching. It just wouldn't be fair.
