"Mentioned you know hey from and why aren't you dominating like Aiden and Lopez are in the playoffs right now and he fired back. If your coach would just play me more, I would Today, he hopes on ESPN and he says, oh, that was just marketing. Essentially, he said, look, I was just trying to stir up interest because I'm releasing an nmt Skyler. Do you buy that? Do you think that is him covering for what he said or do you think that was legitimately the plan? Hey, I'm going to hop on here. I'm going to say something controversial. Everybody's going to be talking about me and then when I release this nft, it's going to get more publicity. Okay, I first want to say I've always really enjoyed Andre Drummond as a player, seems like a good fun person overall, but I think that fun side is playing in fact, this I don't totally buy it. I think he was wild enough on Twitter, got called out, got caught and is releasing the nft and has a really great jobs are person who said, hey, let's combine these things together and so I'm I not, you know, every joke has a hint of Truth. So I think there's definitely some patience of Truth in these jokes from Andre Drummond. You know, I particularly with the comments about it being you know, just if you don't watch the Vets minimum that font, that's fine. But you create a more interesting conversation for yourself. If you really do want to come back to the team, when you sort of laugh publicly like that job, And that's where I think his personality is to have fun, is to Wild out on Twitter, and it seems like he has a good team around him. Who says, hey, let's tone it down a little bit and I think that's what happened today off with combining the nft release with his natural sense of humor. I think he was his sense of humor coming out. Well, also being serious, you know, he he's a two-time All-Star, he's he's a great player, you know, if you're in the NBA, you're one of the four hundred best guys that pick up a basketball on Earth right now..

"It's just all about sometimes. It's about the jury not the destination man but i'm looking at campaign stats here. Do you remember tonight. When mark jackson was like the offense should run through campaign right now he was when he. I think it was the moment when campaign there was like a one on four cam being the one any shot a three pointer That's just the respect to campaign gets in his three point shot is it's ugly but it works. Sometimes champagne campaign has moments where he really does like for stretches of a game it was probably a three or four minute stretch tonight where he does think that he's kobe bryant Like he thinks it like listen. Everyone get out of my way. I'm not passing the ball. It's my game mamba mentality gotta have it. It's it's mama mentality with the momma skills. Is there anything worse than having maybe the worst player into. I'm not saying this about campaign. But i'm no better not about another team. That has like the last guy after bench with the mamba mentality. I you have to have the mob of physicality is again to the mamba missing. I liked the like terms. I if you're a role player if you're a bench guy having the mob mentality is not always a bad thing because you want a guy coming off the bench. who's like. Hey he could catch fire. He could like he. He could some things like pushing it a little bit so i like what campaign does i'll put it this way. What if what if. Billy football had mob mentality that would be. This show would be a big as jake guy. Sitting next to actually is mom intel. Yes yes absolute. He's more like tim. Duncan silently like incredible silently the goat All right so sons. I do think the parks are gonna win on sunday night. It is now the sons are going to win the series. I'll just say it. I think you agree. Yes under gonna win. I'm actually going to revise. I think it's going to be a gentleman sweep. I'm rooting for sons. In actual for but i think it's going to be four to one. I do think though the honest is going to have a legacy resurgence in a loss in this series because in the brooklyn series everyone's like jaanus limited player. We'll know he was going up against kevin durant who you know. How do you want to argue at one or two best players in the nba. He's not as good as him but he still is really really fucking good in a superstar in every facet of the game. I know i've always heard that role players played better at home. I don't know how true that is. It sounds like it's a really good thing to say smart thing to say. So that's what i'm believing is going to happen in games. Three and four so they'll get some contributions from like middleton obviously he's not a role player but and and lopez and dana beers and dana beers. I was is dana. Going to be up there. I think i assume so to invite from bat yari. Yeah he's gotta go so he he he's. He's the definition of a role player. Who will play better at home. He is a suns fan in a milwaukee body. Yeah that's that's perfect description of it is all right. Let's talk some other sports. The stanley cup is staying in. Tampa bay Tom brady the town. The tom brady lives in. Those stats are just. Continue to be ridiculous. We went over it like every bay area team when he was growing up one when he went to michigan like the red wings in michigan football than the red sox celt everyone one in boston now in tampa you have three titles in is it yet three titles in less than twelve months. And you've got a world series. That was barely lost by the raise. Yup so Tampa was just incredible. I have the one thing. That's that's nuts to think about i. Obviously everyone goes to the uva losing to you nbc coming back and winning it all the next year right. That is the ultimate redemption tour. I think the tampa bay lightning's might be right behind that because the tweet the famous tweet i'll read it for everyone. This was after they got swept by the blue jackets in round one. The tampa bay lightning main account tweeted. We don't have any words and we know you don't want to hear them. We understand your anger your frustration. Your sadness everything. You're feeling we get it. This isn't the ending we imagine. And certainly not the one we wanted. Thank you for being there. The entire way and then they went and won back to back stanley cups. That's pretty much perfect right with the help of the no cap lifestyle. July this i will not. We're not apologists. Argue it because i know that other teams cox you know. May maybe a little different. Because patrick kane got her in the middle right in this one kucherov got hurt last year correct during that sees harassed and then they use that they used like a special exemption this year. And but you know what if you're playing by the rules they give. You can't really complain about that and you know it's absolutely one hundred percents. Something that bella check would and also andre vase vaz's leschi. I probably butchered his name. He was incredible. He the stat that i saw last night. He is now in five straight series. Close out games had shut up but wait. What about what about game four. Because they didn't win games no in five straight close out games. Yeah so no in in five straight series the close out game the game that they ended up winning the game of the series. He has had a shout streak. I was a little bit confused about that. Because i was i was thinking back and it was like wait. Incl- i thought they were talking about clinton knows so he he want he pitches. Shut out in the in the stanley cup final last year against dallas. Then every game that they won the series. This year was a shutout. Oh yeah he's amazing. Credible meena me and fights. We're talking about as we watch the game together that if his name was just like a little bit shorter He would be a household name. Yeah but vazza left. It's just like what if it was vasilevskiy. Yeah everybody would be like yo. That's valley we're just viki visa fee ski. He's a sweet sweet nickname like vanbiesbrouck. That's a long last name but the beezer. Yeah the skier. The skier viki yeah. I actually works. These key padre ski. And i'm gonna do something. I never thought that i do. I want to take my hat off to the tampa bay. Lightning fans not there greg. Not thirdly greg but the rest of them and not the people that sat around me and hit nate in the face. They deserved nate. Nate would admit that he deserved it but they seem like a decent group of fans. Yeah and i think they do the longest sellout streak dating show. That seemed to me. Like that's just us thinking. Oh there florida team. They can't be that good of hockey fans but apparently tampa bay. Lightning fence are actually very dedicate. No the i mean i. My time in tampa bay has only been during the stanley cup playoff. So i don't. I don't know what a regular season game. I'm sure it's just just as good but it is an electric like environment. Everyone is locked in I also would like to add the fan that followed me into the bathroom in two thousand fifteen and said he was going to beat my ass while i was wearing full pads pissing at the urinal and i could not defend myself because he could have just grabbed me by the back of the jersey. Swear you while you're pissing. I would've been fucked sweater with your dick out. Yeah he he. He does not get included in the great fan. There was one guy that was sitting right in front of me and he threatened to have me kicked out because i was a caps fan and then he was like. You probably didn't even pay for these tickets. You probably can't even afford them. What is it that you do. And i was like iona professional basketball team in new zealand and then he just looked at me and i was like. Do you own a professional basketball team. And his wife was staring at him now and he goes yes. This is like completely lying about it. But now you can't get big dick by the guy behind you. That looks a kid rock with aids so it was that besides that guy. I'm taking it back. That guy out to. I don't think we own the water. Dogs that point but it smart to not mention the water says something because they would have the one up. He'd been like okay. Yeah at least. I don't own that like that's the worst. That's not something to brag about no shelter water dogs. We had two guys on the reserve also reserves..

"Today is friday july ninth and. Pf we really going to do this thing. Are we really do the thing where we start. Every podcast. his sons and four sons and four because we just started the podcast sons in full sons in for a big cat. Do you notice anything different about me. Your your hair's lighter. I use sunan. Yeah son all you on all on social media on. So i did. I did cheat on this test. Yeah sunan four. That's why i'm doing it. They regard to support the bros. and phoenix. Oh my god. The pros will get to the broza. I mean let's just say right. Now i there are moments in phoenix where it just feels like. It's chela burning man put. It's an nba finals game. That the we we both clipped certain fans that like and then they showed the pre-game the guy what was his name. O dallin dallas allen. Who so donahue so you. Don't you make that up like i don't know that is the name of the burning man if we did that as a fake name. People like dude. That's too far down. Who so is the ultimate. He's he's the sun's bro. I and know what i've noticed. Also that the suns fans they have such an eclectic look amongst them but they all come together to create like the perfect energy inside that stadium. Yes you'll have one guy wearing like a son shirt and a brown fat and the guy wearing a yankees jacket over his sons jersey with no under they root for all different teams outside of basketball. The here for the summit's they're here for the sons and when they're an eight k. Its it hits different kale. It's way different than when they're showing like the british fans eight k. And the cameraman has a guy that got stabbed earlier that morning and then a girl that looks like a guy that looks like me in like six guys with braces to from yes But yeah the the suns fans and eight k it made. It made the viewing experience that much better. It was incredible. So let's talk about the game. So the suns. Well let's start with the box. Jaanus was incredible. Jaanus deserves more. Help jaanus he. He deserves more help. He actually just deserves his his. Max players. Chris middleton to play like max player He had forty two. He was doing it all like everything that he wanted to do. And maybe that was the son strategy. Like hey jaanus will get his. No one else will get theirs. But y- honest was like exceptionally it was reminiscent. Maybe not to the level that that finals game the classic. Jr smith game when lebron had like fifty fifty point triple double in a loss to the warriors in that game. One like this was a jaanus display. He was the best player on the court and he had no help. Because chris middleton andrew holiday were combined twelve thirty seven and we had this discussion the other day that paul george gets paid a lot and he deserves criticism because he gets paid a lot christmas and gets paid thirty three million dollars a year like chris. Milton has had moments in these playoffs. But you need him to play better than what he played in in the game tonight. Five for sixteen and one for six from three like you just. You can't win with that. You cannot win with that. When that's your second. Best guy innomax guy and honest at the line to his credit. He was shooting the ball. Lot faster tonight. I think he was averaging like eight and a half seconds seconds per free throw and i think he shot. What thirteen at twenty. Yeah he was decent night by his standards very good night by his standards. Eighteen eleven good. That's that's really good. Yeah for him so he can't do it on his own. His left knee. Every time he hits the ground i get i get a bad feeling about it because his body is so freakish that he was able to come back this fast. You can tell it's not one hundred percent and that's that's kind of crazy. It's kind of terrifying. You think that the stuff that he's doing out there is when he's not one hundred percent he was doing the thing that we always say that lebron should do every time he gets the ball. Which you just put your head down to drive to the basket. Yeah and he was just running people over left and right. It was such like violent encounters at the rim that there were like three times that somebody just got knocked on their ass as he was going up for layup or dunk and the rest of the thing where they blow the whistle and make a cold one way or the other. Yeah they're just like that's a fair play. That's good clean defense. Jaanus that much stronger. He's that much stronger. And then the sun so everything. I said about the box the opposite for the sons because the sun's that was a complete team game all five starters in double digits. It felt like they all had their moments like mikhail bridge. Jae crowder comes out. He's hot the first is i like few shots. Kill bridges carried them in the first half then. Devon booker goes absolutely insane like everyone chipped in. Everyone played well devon every single time. The bucks felt like they were making a run every time they got to five or six and it was a game pretty much the entire game because they would come back the sons would just hit a huge shot in their face and obviously everyone will show that one possession which was phenomenal where everyone on the team touched the ball and it was like kind of a scramble drill and it was just like. That's a team. That is playing cohesive basketball and everyone knows their role and they all fit perfectly. And you can't beat that with one guy. And i feel bad for janas. He was trying to get us free tacos free tacos if the bucks one tonight. You can't just tease us with free tacos bringing.
"andre drummond" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"I was close game. I say five points. Five points three. Oh got fifteen. I got four really well. Then take my bet. No no i give you the sun tonight before. And i'll give you five and a half i got. I got the sons. No no no. I'm thinking i'm gonna give you the bucks with our with winning. But you said it's going to be a four point game win by four okay. We'll i'll give you the bucks and five and a half the book you take now. Andre drummond didn't exactly have the impact that he or lakers fans had hoped for when he joined the team mid season and now it looks like he may not be back next year after going viral from some tweets about his lack of playing. Time and retweeting skips post featuring his nickname three reptile drummond. The big man posted some photos of some new t shirts featuring a gigantic farewell. The top christopher. Start back with us. Chris break this down. What is going on here careers. Why why like i this. This isn't good on any front. As far as i'm concerned number one farewell. How can we take that but to think you're out of la okay. You're on social media saying blaming your poor playoff performance or your lack of playing time. That would seem like a shot at the lakers coach. Frank vogel we all saw how they struggle when you anthony day was on the floor together during the regular season and the postseason so it doesn't seem like a fit now. Maybe andrei sees the handwriting on the wall and is trying to get out in front of it and say look. I left because i wanted to. I wanted out. I wanted to a bigger role. And i wasn't getting enough minutes rather than the lakers. Just didn't want me back. Maybe that's what he's doing. As far as the kareem abdul drumming. This makes me think skip that. He hasn't seen you say it but somebody told him you call him kareem abdul drumming because he seems to think it was viewed as like a compliment like eight. They got their next kareem abdul-jabbar next shot and that seems to be how he's taking it and why in the world put yourself in that class. Why joe very carol your bar so just loan dry. I don't get it for your own. Good dray leave it alone. Don't sell this mertz obamacare. we'd get traded. i'm old enough to remember. His nickname was joe. Barely cares for that. I agree with you chris. I hope this was a joke. I'm not so sure kareem gonna take it. He told that name reason. There's not very many people that get an offer to choose most of us. You know birth name. My mom or dad chooses name and they've been obviously in hollywood we find out a lot of people have changed the name and not so much in hollywood. Would you get a chance. But he changed his name for reason. And i'm sure that you merchandise. But like i said i hope it's a joke you know i don't want to make too big of a deal i was killed is a joke. I want to take it up the joke. He's frustrated because he's saying he say like i believe i can do what deondraye eyton does do. Lopez does if. I just get more opportunity if i got more. Playing time could done then. I just believe that because he came in at the middle of the season. A big guy is hard. Because you depend on god getting you. The ball will the guy that could really get you the ball understand. You was hurt when you arrive shooter. That know how to potent and he played with clint cappella agree throw. He doesn't all they can't be the big guy all in the bronx. You started to feel a little bit of what germany could do. Will lebron got there. So i'm not going to be too much of a deal out of it. I like to think though if he had a training camp. They defied his role. Make it crystal clear what they expect of him. I could be good for the liquor but it doesn't seem like that's going to be a possibility. I don't think so. I think he just posted way out of la. And he is unrestricted free agent. Rick okay. Let's revisit where the nickname came from. They signed him after he was bought. Out by cleveland detroit. Cleveland cleveland roy. Okay so it gets bought out lakers. Land him in jeanie buss post side by side and pictures on the website of her welcoming. This guy andre drummond. Welcome and the next picture is her. Father welcoming kareem abdul-jabbar when they acquired him from milwaukee way back when so. I was just astounded by the comparison. That genie was making so i started calling him. Derisively kareem abdul drummond. Okay so that continued on. Then he also. He acknowledged that his nickname in cleveland slash detroit was the big penguin. We also were calling him into big paint but the point was then. He made the mistake of answering a fan on twitter saying well. If y'all coach would would play me more. I could dominate like eight. And he also threw in brooklyn brooklyn has dominated dominate like. They were dominating okay. So it's a shot at frank vogel within. He got ridiculed for about five or six straight hours on twitter on which he trended with means of andre drummond looking in the mirror and seeing kareem abdul-jabbar. That's what he sees when he looks in the mirror. Well i think he got angry. I think this was sarcastic. Post that were responding to now because he did re tweet my nickname but i think it was an angry retweet in photoshop. Pictures saying farewell with the picture of kareem on the front and it's basically saying each your heart out l. a. You could have had a kareem. But i'm now farewell out outta. He actually did have actual had had well they re cream. Yeah so like. I said i just think this is a joke. But i don't think koreans going think it's funny with a picture of him you know using his likeness. I'll say this if fairness to andre drummond. He's just in the wrong era. Yes or no. I mean he. He's a good player he puts up. You know we signed put up numbers in detroit and cleveland. But they didn't lead to wins. I'm not saying he'd been a star. Trek back in the day would have been going against much better centers but his game is fit for the nineties of the past. Yeah it just is and then back then. I think he would have been. A good player is jesse's somewhat of a liability today. Now if the lakers are someone else. I think the lakers are equipped for it. If they say we're going to be different we're gonna play. We got lebron james. We got anthony. Davis we got andre drummond wolff. Three point shooters around him. But we're going to be big. We're gonna lock you down defensively and we're gonna pound you inside and would you double and triple a. Sensei we're kicking it out to our shooters. If they did that then i think they could be affected. but everybody. And we see with milwaukee shannon you keep bringing this up. Everybody wants to play the same way. Everybody is just a mesmerized hypnotized by the analytics and feel like we gotta take a ton of threes. No matter what how big we are. We have to play this way so is just in a bad situation with the lakers but overall in today's nba to some degree. But if you think about it guys. The lakers championship playing big. They played the white house with the playoff. They played bill mcgee. Anthony davis lebron james bay. Where a big team and they would have pound people. Okay but those guys are built differently than drum is built but they also had a whole big. Dwight only got. Dwight had an off season. He had a training camp to go through this. I just believe drum wide arrived. Think about it. Lebron was hurt a was hurt so he's trying to.

"Great laker suns game. It was chris. Paul by the way only played twenty three minutes and the lakers had do hang on for the win. If i'm frank vogel. This morning lakers coach. He's been in a lot of these playoff series. I had a restless restless night's sleep. So anthony davis was not only fantastic but super aggressive. He know us play like that. Dennis schreuder may have played his best game as a laker. Certainly as best playoff game. It's not even close okay. He was great last night. Andre drummond was super effective and lebron played well and we held on to beat phoenix in trouble in the fourth and chris. Paul wasn't around the end. And i'm not sure chris balls got more than fifty percent of a right now

NBA Playoffs: Phoenix Suns Beat Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1
"Lakers phoenix suns with an emphatic. Ninety nine hundred game one win that they control from start to finish and you know what when we talk about the lakers. We usually get a lakers perspective. Someone from l. a. No two sons one game one. Let's get someone from phoenix. The first person. I thought it was the one and only eddie johnson. How are you sir day. I mean that's not being in the playoffs the so long. I can't even remember zach and i wake up this morning and we're gonna win the series. They can't be any better than this house. The arena. You know what i watch it on. Tv to be quite honest with you. I work i work so much is like when i get an opportunity to just listen to somebody else. Do a gain the replays. And everything i just feel like you know is so much more up close and personal for me but when i heard about buddies told me said it was just unreal eighteen thousand although they listed there's about ten six but it seemed like it was eighteen thousand so it was packed. Ready and people were partying outside so fun. Time right now saying we haven't experienced this long time. So we had a kerfuffle and ejection. Chris paul hurting his shoulder and and using a jump shot form. That was clearly not his normal form will have to monitor that going forward so it was an eventful game. The sun's sort of told the world. Hey we're here drayton. i'm here. i'm the. I'm the biggest guy in the floor. Andre drummond bigger than me. But i'm gonna play like the big sky devon booker. i'm ready you're gonna have to double me straight up hard double me like luka doncic. What surprised you about game one. What was something that stood out that maybe you didn't expect surprise me about the suns team. This is a team that i've been seeing all year long. I've been trying to convince the on. Tell them they are real deal. They are team. Personify one to fifteen. Every one of those guys are prepared. Money is a great job with them. They have confidence. they did. Not surprise me.
Los Angeles Lakers Suffer Disastrous Loss to Sacramento Kings
"An unbelievably bad performance by the Lakers and a game in which the kings were missing some of their better players, including de'aaron Fox and the Lakers just kind of did what they've done. All season long and turned the ball over too much and just flat-out miss open shots. And we saw that happen time and time again. Let's get into the stands real quick before I start taking your questions and comments here. So the Kings shoot, 45% from the field, not great. But they shot 36% from 3 and ninety percent from the line. That makes a difference compared to a Lakers team who shot 51% from the field and 25% from 3 and 71% for the line. If you can't shoot, you can't win really tough to win games when you can't put the ball in the basket. Again at The Rim, okay? 51% off. You can't hit 3s in the modern NBA. You're in big big trouble in the Lakers again, 25%. That's the game. That's the game right there. If you shoot league-average, even just league-average from 3, you win this game by a margin but instead, the Lakers are missing a lot of their three-point attempts tonight. And then the turnovers 21, turnovers for the Lakers. Again, cannot do that, that's a problem. They've had most of the Season. At one point, the worst team in the NBA when it came to turnovers. Haven't checked it recently, but they are still up there. They've been really, really bad. Turning the ball over for most of the season. They did get better for a little bit there. They got a little bit better. Dead shooter was starting to rain things in a little bit it wasn't being an Optima optimistic password so much tonight that was not the case. They completely regressed in the turnover Department. It got really bad there and then the other piece to this the offensive rebounds 11:00 to 11:00. 11:00 offensive boards for the Lakers 11 offensive boards for the Kings. You can't do that. If you are having a front line that has Andre Drummond and Anthony Davis on it. Plus LeBron James, you have to absolutely dominate unquestionably down, Nate the glass,
An Undermanned Lakers Leads to a 40 Point Score For Jaylen Brown
"Well and and tonight heading in the Celtics were a six-point favorite according to oddsshark in terms of where they would come out and they and they certainly covered there. They wanted the game bike game. Eight. So if you pick the Celtics in this one that I guess you came out on top of it, but the Celtics came in as the favorite we thought the Celtics would win this game and they really came out firing. I mean the big problem was Jaylen Brown through most of the of the night. I mean we finish up with 40 points. He's the guy they turned to when when things start to get close in the fourth, he came back and scored a couple of buckets and I look at this as as two things off for one. Jaylen Brown is is just a good player. But the second thing is the Lakers just didn't have anybody to put on him. I mean the the guys you would probably turns you would include Anthony Davis LeBron James Markieff Morris all of them sidelined and then you don't even have Andre Drummond to meet him at The Rim when he's driving and he took advantage of I mean credit to Jaylen brown, but I think a lot of this game was just sick of how many guys the Lakers have out injured right now.
Drummond a Better Addition to Lakers Than Rondo to Clippers
"We'll really both teams. Latest editions have paid off saturday. Andre drummond helped lead the lakers in an upset win over the nets. Thanks to his twenty points and eleven rebounds while yesterday rajon rondo dropped five ten points in the fourth quarter. Help the clippers close out the pistons in a comeback win so shannon waiting to think long and hard about this who is the better acquisition from in oregon out here. I think both gas were what the doctor ordered I think would rondo. Does he is allow. He allows paul george and kawhi not to worry about the ball handling situation especially late in the ball game so now they can do what they really good. At that score the basketball rondo will always get them into the right set. He will always do the right thing. Andre drummond is. This is just what the doctor ordered scale because he gives them. Something that the lakers didn't have the size and strength on the block. A guy that could score down there a guy that could rebound down there and a guy that can defend down there so for me. I'm going to say audrey draw. But although i believe rondo a great acquisition andre drummond is going to be the difference between the lakers winning and losing the title. Because i believe skips if you remember last year would they could do. Is that javagal. Into why they all they own for the most time they own the rebounding advantage. I believe this is going to be another situation that they're gonna get a lot of second chance opportunities because the look the other night i think andre drummond had offense rebounds that gives you another opportunity to possibly get. Am one adult or is going to be kicked out to a wide. Open three point shooter so for me. I'm gonna take andre drummond. 'cause i love and plus he three in august this year

Lakers' Drummond Shows Promise Against the Heat
"Andre Drummond, but we've only seen him up until tonight. We only see him for 14 minutes in purple and gold and he got hurt and against the Milwaukee now here he is back tonight twenty seven minutes. That's a lot of minutes 549 from the field 12 boards three assists two steals. No blocks three turnovers five thousand but fifteen points off of 6 from the Line run. Let's start with you. What good and bad. What did you like and dislike about what we saw out of Andre Drummond tonight? And and what do you think about him moving forward? Yeah, so I mean we we talked about it during the game. I texted you guys that basically if he can work on just catching the ball firmly the first time he touches it and not bottling it and get it get swiped around he's going to be incredible. He I mean look fifteen points and 12 rebounds two steals. He did have three turnovers, but I think two of them were in the office like two minutes of the game when again he was like bobbling the ball all places and couldn't get it a hold of it. He'd Butterfingers for the first like five minutes of the game, but once he settled down and just it's one of those things he just accepted the role that he's in he did not try to do too much. He didn't take any of those bad like dumb hook shots that he's known for he didn't try to do any of that stuff. He just played his game. He got rebounds wage jumped the ball and he had some pretty good passes to I mean I point Drummond is an interesting concept.
Los Angeles Lakers Get Much-Needed Win In Blowout Over Sacramento Kings
"Pick up the big win over the Sacramento Kings, they went by 21, you know, what most of the time right at a championship contending team beating the Kings wouldn't be a big deal, right? We would look at this and just say well whatever they're supposed to but given the current state of the Lakers without LeBron without Anthony Davis now without even Andre Drummond sliding down in the standings. This was an important one. In fact I said going into the game. This was a must must win and my goodness. I wasn't sure which Lakers team was a good show up. I wasn't sure if the Lakers were going to approach this game as a must-win the way I thought it was and they did they came out firing. What a performance and let me say this not only did the Lakers need this game. We needed this game Lakers Nation. We needed this one. We needed a performance like this because it had been too long. There was so much negative. Any permeate permeating Lakers Nation? It had been far too long since we've seen the Lakers really play. Well, really put it all together. And of course A lot of it came down to the three-point shooting tonight. They were absolutely phenomenal behind the arc V E 1% from behind the arc 52% if we round up and 48% from the field, they shot better from behind the three-point line than they did from the field not something that happens very often. But still this is certain a time to celebrate the Lakers picking up this win. We know the schedule is going to get tough. We know there's going to be some more difficult roads ahead. But for right now for this moment, we got to take a moment just appreciate what we saw tonight because this was a fantastic performance by your Los Angeles Lakers top to bottom everybody chipped in and he loved to see that.
Francisco Lindor Truly Commits to the New York Mets
"Lindores signed an eleven year. Three hundred forty one million dollar contract with the new york mets. After this season there is a monumental class of shortstops available in free agency including cory seager trevor story hobby bias and carlos. Correa what do you think of this deal for. Francisco lynn door. Is it too much. And what's the effect of all those shortstops being free agents. After the season. I think the effect is had door turned the deal down. They just would have gone out and got another one of those guys. I'm surprised they gave him that much. To be honest. i don't last year. He didn't have a great season. Never got on track. Yeah it's a long commitment. I think it takes them to his age. Thirty seven season up to me personally. It was too long especially considering all those names you mentioned and those guys were all going to be available. Why give three hundred and fifty million dollars to francisco lindor. I thought it was overpaid.

"andre drummond" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Yes, absolutely. But I also liked how quickly he was rotating out. There were a few times where the Bucks who tried to stretch you out by putting Brook Lopez out there, which is not ideal for Andre Drummond in his debut to play against another Center that just stands out of the three-point line. But Brook Lopez camped out of the three-point line Andre Drummond checked into the paint cut off a drive off got back out and contested Brook Lopez and that was really good. He was quicker than I expected him to be and I think that's the type of thing that when the bronze out there directing traffic on defense and you've got to Anthony Davis making up for mistakes. And if you've got a guy like Andre Drummond out there as well. I can see where that could really work. Now again, this was not a great debut from him. It's not like you're looking at them going. Oh my gosh. This is this is it. This is a call center of the future. It was just an okay performance. But yeah, I'm not I'm not looking at this too disappointed. We saw 14 minutes from a guy who hasn't played since February 12th, and and I thought We saw the good and the bad tonight. My hope moving forward is that you can take those bad things in there the parts of his game that are just not good and you can convince him to whittle that down turn those into Andre if you're going to get the ball and you're going to face up. It's in an emergency situation because the shot clock is winding down. That's that's when you're doing that. I thought his passing was pretty decent better than I expected there on that and otherwise said screens rolled to the basket be alarmed threat. That's what they need you to do on offense and then do what you've been doing on defense now and drop coverage against that team little bit tough, but I still think he did a pretty nice job putting in effort. He looked like I thought he was going to burn out the gas tank in the first quarter cuz he was sprinting up and down the floor every possession making sure that he got all the way down to protect the rim. So hopefully that is something that content that continues in terms of the effort and I'm not going to be too upset about Drummond's first outing..

"Lakers solo show. Just me and all of you tonight coming in from YouTube from Faith from Periscope. The Lakers do fall to the Milwaukee Bucks and Andre Drummond's debut drum. It also got injured in this debut. Why can't we have nice things? What is going on a Andre Drummond gets hurt. Hopefully, it's nothing serious. We're going to keep an eye on Twitter while we are streaming live here and and hopefully we'll get a good update there so far. What we know is the x-rays are negative thoughts big toe injury. Hopefully, he will be just fine, but did have to leave the game early tonight again in his Lakers debut. Not what we wanted to see certainly but again, the Lakers do fall to the Milwaukee. Box was not a pretty game started off pretty good. In fact, there was a point there in the first quarter where I thought maybe this is it right? We've been saying all along that at some point. The Lakers are going to surprise us enough guys are going to get home. They're going to beat a team that you're not expecting them to beat and I thought maybe this is the night after we saw them knocked down all those threes in the first quarter. They had a nice lead and then everything fell apart and they're shooting went back to the way. It's been which is terrible. They couldn't make anything and that was pretty much the ball game, but we're going to break this whole thing down. I'm going to be taking your questions and comments coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Periscope for the last time. I believe from Periscope because I think Periscope is shutting down and then it's going to be moving over to Twitter. But whatever we will we will navigate that but anybody come in and watching this live will be taking your questions and comments, of course giving away Lake nation, license plate frames. So if you hear me call your name during the show again, it's just me and all of you so I'm probably going to be calling a lot of names tonight..

"Like i don't know it's just like not that surprising. That teams would want players like harrison barnes or aaron gordon. When you go back a couple of years would you when you first saw what sacramento gave harrison bars. My reaction was like god. What are they doing. Why are they paying him that much money. They're expecting too much from him. And you know maybe at that time it looked worse because they did have some of the other pieces in place. Maybe they were hoping that you know fox would step forward as that number one guy because it was no small contract they gave him. He was coming off some tough situations in dallas. Where just kind of not a lot of impact. And we got another e mail from a kings fan named peter who made the same point as like everybody's crushing sacramento two years ago. Now they're coming back around. And and trying to steal barnes out of nowhere so i do think that there has been kind of a shift or an enhancement in the In kind of perception of these guys value in particular. Maybe maybe i'm just looking at it from someone who like always thought these players were super valuable. And it's it's also kind of like we have this really broad umbrella with these like big wings. Who can guard up or down a position and shoot over thirty seven percent from the three point line. Or whatever like there's a difference in my eyes between harrison barnes and say robert covington. Let's say someone like that who someone who can like like harrison. Barnes was so valuable to team like because he could actually create for himself. He could put it on the deck you throw to them in an isolation in the post he could pound a mismatch and you just a little bit more of a physical defender particularly on the ball. So i i like i guess like. I don't even know how to like kind of engage with this because it's just kind of obvious that players who can shoot threes and who can defend and versatile are super valuable and championship contenders or teams that wanna be championship. Contenders Want those players and usually they make more money than those teams can afford. So i know boston came up quite a bit In both those emails and it's like well. Boston normally would not be able to get a player like harrison. Barnes and gordon but they had the trade exception right so So yeah. I know i'm probably rambling on this topic but But three indy wings or three and and we need a new nickname for what this player type of player is but that type of player is super valuable. And i do think you can overpay because it's certainly possible to overpay look look back like otto porter type situation right where he's smack in that same archetype. You feel like he's a lottery pick you know..
"andre drummond" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"Three. Wow maybe yeah. I don't see it. I'm sorry i might be like a four point five but you know my heart. I kind of want something good to happen for lamarcus. I do feel like he's kind of gotten a bum shakes out throughout his career. Okay one to ten for drummond. One being the lakers just decide. This wasn't really a good move at all. We're sticking with markelle saw because of his basketball iq or sticky with mantras harrell because of his energy. And you know. He is getting dp throughout the playoffs. Ten being it's this new return of big physical lakers bully ball and andre drummond. Lebron anthony davis are out there as an all-star trio just dominating the glass and bringing rebounding back going all the way to the title one to ten where drummond fall also a three. I'm sorry i just i. I actually think that the the the likelihood of him doing potential maybe damages probably too strong of a word but ruffling feathers in the locker room is higher than him. Impacting winning on the court is kind of how i view that addition wow i actually go five simply because of the the yokich matchup and this could just be influenced too much by dwight shenanigans. But i do feel like they might be trying to encourage andre drummond to get into that kind of clown mode right just being like super annoying and bouncing around. He really shouldn't do that like he's thirty. Five years old yet like settled down. Well that would be my strategy. If i was the lakers because yokich match problem. I think he's better than he was in last year's western conference finals. He's got a better roster. He's got more help. And the lakers are coming in. Probably in that potential matchup without quite as much continuity and chemistry as they enjoyed last year. So i'm just saying they could be motivated to pull out all the stops in that one. So i could see him being very helpful there in a way mark assault i may be. My treasure aren't quite as much but past that i'm with you likely finals. Matchup with brooklyn drum is probably not help too much. He could also help as a body against embiid. You know that could be another one if if philly made the finals. Where have you ever have. You ever watched Joel embiid play andre drummond. I'm imagining it's not going great. But here's here's the other thing that i'm imagining is that you know mantras herald just giving up five consecutive And so it's more about limiting the scope of the damage as opposed to like. Hey andre go there on a lockdown joel. I'm sure that's going to go. Well no i mean that's a that's a really accurate point. But i think i'm just generally more down on these than you are and we haven't even talked about Gorge jiang going to san antonio spurs not a glimmer market At all but a team that could use some size some space at the five win. Jaka portals on the bench you know. They're playing drew eubanks attend. And he's okay. But if they wanna. I think they've upgraded at that position and kind of replaced. Aldridge a little bit. So that's an and just generally kinda. When i look at like..
"andre drummond" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"I think that's a great counter. And i would also say like milwaukee's been in the mix right if they oughta guy like austin rivers and you know plug a hole in their rotation and he might get some really important playoff minutes. I mean that could wind up huge. Yeah he's good I've always been a fan of austin rivers especially when he was in houston. I thought that you know. He's statistically one of the better so players in the league he can hit a pull up three To like every once in a while he can get hot and they just needed extra depth at that spot. Right dante vincenzo. Were to go down or something like that. Like it would get really really quick for them and he's also used to playing with. Pj tucker and understanding you know how you playoff. Lead ball handlers. Who are going to do most of the creating and everything else so that was a pretty nice move for them. That would be one of my counters. I would also go to the idea that if your team is set. If you have really good front office you may not even need to play in the buyout market. Like let me ask you. Do you think the jazz were like. Oh no we didn't get andre drummond in the buyout like they're they're looking at their rotation saying we're good you know we can pick up a matt. Thomas randomly from toronto at the trade deadline. Just get one more shooter. Just an embarrassment of riches but like they didn't really need to plug those holes because things were set up pretty well. And so i would say maybe casey take a deep breath. I would say that for sure and don't leave the sport just because of the buyouts. It's not quite that series. They don't impact the championship. Like historically they re honestly. Can you name anyone who was a bio player who seriously was a factor in a playoff run. I mean i. Yeah like last year's. I think most important one probably was Markeith morris for the lakers russia. And so how important was he ninth. Most important player for the lakers right So it's not that they're having zero impact. But it's probably negligible but i do think that he casey's onto a slippery slope which is ask these kinds of contracts continue to escalate. You could see a situation in the not too distant future where washington is looking at buyout negotiations with row with russell westbrook or houston's looking out by out negotiations with john wall and when those happen and those guys joined some you know big market team prestige organization. There's gonna be a lot of outrage but it is important to remember. The current versions of the guys who are being bought out are not the star versions. And that was your original point. Which i thought was an excellent one michael so i'm going to put it to you this way. I need a ranking just a real quick one sentence take how much will marcus aldridge helped the nets when the title on a one to ten scale with ten being starting in game seven. Dominating anthony davis and and one being. He's just wearing dress clothes on the bench because they don't even need him because they got nick. Claxton a future hall of famer. Where does he land on the one to ten scale.

What's up bengal over the washington post. I am joined on the other line by michael. The pod pena of sports illustrated michael. I think the weekend after the trade deadline was really dominated by a lot of buyout. Talk and frankly a lot of buyout. Backlash we got an email from casey michael. I'm going to spare you the entire details. But casey us solid. I don't know six thousand words taking the nba's competitive balance landscape to task by virtue of these buyout situations where a team like the brooklyn nets can go out and grab lamarcus aldridge. A team like the los angeles lakers can just pick up an drummond and drop them right into their pocket It looks like the milwaukee bucks might be able to add austin rivers. Which i think is actually kind of a sneaky edition that maybe should really be infuriating. People accept milwaukee's not that big market brooklyn l. a. team that tends to get so much of the backlash in these conversations. But casey's general premise was that small market teams should be livid and their fans should be livid because players tend to go to the larger markets in these situations the a lot of times a smaller market teams. Whether it's a cleveland and drummond's case a san antonio in aldridge's case footing the bill for these bio players in other words there almost paying them to go away and and gravy train onto a title contender. And i'm curious when you look at the state of this developing buyout market here which i think has accelerated over the last five years or so. Do you view this as a critical problem for the league. If you're adam silver would you be tried to rain this in because we are seeing some really big names also including blake griffin sort of exploit. This loophole to give themselves a second chapter for their careers. Yeah i mean. I want to start just by saying that Howard beck wrote a really good piece on sl dot com kind of outlining why this is viewed as a humongous issue particularly from the perspective of those small market teams where there is a disparity in the league. Everybody knows it. If you're glamour market you have an inborn advantage to building a consistent championship contender. That's just kind of how the league is when i look at the buyout situation. I mean it's obviously not perfect. It's not ideal. It's not even fair. But the way i kinda see it. I think there are some tweaks you can make to improve it. But i i kind of like there's two things one blake griffin an lamarcus aldridge. Are they both signed with the with the nets. I'd think that either one will be on the floor in crunch time of a playoff game for that team. It's not to say that they can't help in the regular season and that they will won't be in the rotation potentially in the playoffs. But like i think their names are a lot more impactful than their actual production like. They are not even close to as good in all. Seriousness is bruce brown or joe harris or jeff..

"Of sources out there about wage but the plan seems to be to keep Otto Porter on the magic for the remainder of the season. That's disappointing because he would be I mean if you're talking about it a perfect fit on the roster of the like available types of players. Yeah. He's he's the one but he will likely remain on the magic for the rest of the year that leads you to guys like Avery Bradley. I've always thought I mean for for the past couple of weeks since this has been discussed. I've always said that I he I don't think he's a perfect fit but I would take I would take him but yeah Otto Porter Jr. Would be the perfect fit if he became available. So little update here from Jovan buha of the athletic mentions that also our own. Ryann Ward through this in here Frank Vogel does not know about his availability for Wednesday's game just yet, but he did throw in that. He's really excited about this situation. And as excited as we are I think our team got a lot better. I agree coach Vogel. I agree. I think Lakers did get significantly better with the addition of Andre Drummond gives you a totally different look in the middle that everything you've seen was tonight the last night that we see starter Marcus all by the way. Well, look if Drummond plays Wednesday, he he will be in the starting lineup. I actually don't know like if it were up to me, I actually wouldn't play him Wednesday. He is not played basketball in in over a month and half now true. I think his last game was like February 12th or something. He hasn't played basketball in a really long time and I think he needs some time to get acclimated with the team. I did not know if I play him Wednesday. I think I told him out until either Sacramento or the Clippers. That's just me. I don't know what Vogel wants to do. I am really really excited about his addiction know like he is a flawed player. He is a flawed player he puts up a lot of bad shots and he has a he has this thing where he really likes to go back to the basket and like put a hook shot and he's like, he loves that he's terrible. It's so bad his efficiency was horrible..

"Years old like you'll still be in his prime, you know, if no one wants him. Yeah, we'll take em for you know, like three or four million bucks. That'd be pretty sweet. But it's unlikely. Yeah. Yeah, and so that's the way to approach I would imagine that's got to be non bird rights. They're that they're using that they would be using in that scenario, but I'd home. Go back in and double check to see exactly what the rules are as far as a bio candidate goes. Let's see Trevor. Do you think our chances of winning against decent teams without Anthony Davis and LeBron improved significantly with Drummond in the mix. So, what do you think? There's Drummond make the Lakers that much more likely to win these kinds of games. I mean, we're looking at their schedule coming up. I would assume that we're not looking at the Milwaukee Bucks and thinking even with drum and by the way, I think that's where he's going to make his debut as Wednesday against the Bucks. You have two days off in between that gives them some time to get acclimated but you've got the Bucks you've got the Kings the Clippers the Raptors maybe I guess the Kings he gets you a win that you otherwise wouldn't have but I don't think he's pushing you in front of the Milwaukee Bucks without a Deanne LeBron. I think that's wishful thinking Yeah, it's also really based on match up because you know, we have to you know, Andre Drummond is a great pickup. I'm not trying to get around that but but he is going to be match up based. There are certain games. We're just like Dwight Howard. He's better than Dwight Howard and Javale McGee, but just like those guys. He's going to get played out of some games and you know Milwaukee and the Clippers. Those are two games he could very quickly get played out of against Toronto. He might have some more success with the day of Aron Baynes. It might have some more success there and that matchup against the Kings, you know, maybe he'll have some success there. But you know, we he's not going to be a you know, total game-changer, you know, it's it's all winds from here on out. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, he's he's he's a very good Center he's good. Right?.

We really do appreciate you guys quite a few of these. So it was really really pretty cool. All right, so this is a little bit of a tweak on that other one home or was that big actually will do this one instead? Okay, because I think this one is fun. This is another one of those forty MERS and this one came from sorry. I should not closed it just yet at Casey Levine on Twitter. Okay, Cleveland, San Antonio, Oklahoma City in Sacramento Cleveland gets DeMar DeRozan and Jabari Parker, San Antonio gets Andre Drummond and Trevor Ariza the Thunder get Marvin Bagley and Nemanja B Lisa and the Kings get LaMarcus Aldridge. Mhm. I am going to have to find that one right now because I cannot picture that in my head. It's it's in your notes in mind. That's what it was. I was looking through three years. All right, find that one and then I'll be able to break that down a little bit. It's a it's a screenshot of the trade machine got it. Got it. Got it got there. It is give you my thoughts while you're pulling it up. Here it is. I think I kind of like it for the Cavs. I think the rosens an upgrade for the rest of the season especially as he's been playing kind of a small ball for roll for San Antonio. I like came over Drummond for them Jabari Parker. That doesn't matter. That's just thrown in a imagine to make the math work Spurs side of it. I don't hate it. Try out drumming for the rest of the year. See if anybody's got get the best out of him. It's probably going to be San Antonio. They've got enough guys that they can get by without DeRozan there is this year. I think he's probably done there any way a reason that doesn't do anything for them. They take a reason reason is my number one guy to be bought out in the Bayou Market don't think anybody's trading for him cuz no one's going to trade for 12.8 million hits bought out and he's probably got finished his career. My guess is with the Lakers is my guess I'd say he's coming home again for like what's I like the tenth time? He'll be a Laker the 10th. Oh, he's been a Laker what get Mark once? Well, I mean, he's from East he came in the trade with a with the best at least tried two different Arisa. He was in and then wasn't he there he was in 2009. He came in want to Championship with offers unless.

You gotta go to YouTube. Now if you want to see it, you gotta go to YouTube. So yeah. I made it really great point on Drummond. And now I forgot it. It probably wasn't well at least we know who is Andre Drummond Andre Drummond. Yeah. So we've known for a couple of weeks now roughly maybe closer to a month that Drummond was kind on the trade block even early on this page. Are we expected that that really firmed up when they made the Jarrett Allen trade then at that point. We absolutely new drama was going to be traded challenges. He makes a lot of money. He's very highly paid job is not an easy contract to move. So I think that is where the Cavs are now stuck. They don't want him to get hurt and by playing him so they're not going to risk that. 28.7 million had to look it up just to make sure and keep keep forgetting if it's like 27.8 or 28.7 either way. It's a lot of yeah either way. So yeah, so essentially what the cabs are off. It's saying stay home until we figure this out a little different he is going to guess still be around the team and stuff cuz there's not any bad feelings or anything like that. It's just we're not going to play you until we either find a trade or it could come to a bio there's been subsequent reporting that a bio is very unlikely here that the Cavs don't really want to go that Direction with him that seems like blustered am now this far out from the deadline. We're still about 5 and 1/2 weeks from the trade deadline. It's March 25th this year. So we're we've got a ways to go but they're they're sitting them until till they can either work out a deal or then my guess is if the trade deadline comes and goes and they have not moved him then they'll probably start really seriously discussing a bio when I look at this situation, you know, it makes a ton of sense for the Cavs to put off. No, we're not buying them out. Right because look at what Memphis did last season with Andre Iguodala, right?.
Detroit Pistons will sit Blake Griffin while team considers trade, buyout
"Watson routes give espn dot com has reported that not only. Is andre drummond. Kind of getting shut down for this whole trade talk discussion but also his former detroit. Pistons teammate blake griffin. It sounds like we'll be held out of the lineup. Until they can sort of figure out what his next move is is there a trade available for blake griffin or does this have to be a very extensive buyout situation where you know blazing to give some money out to get his freedom to go play for a good team. How do you resolve. This blake griffin situation. And why are they going to shut him down. I mean he's been very rough. So far this season i think a lot of people have noticed that he hasn't had a single dunk all year. Which just seems incomprehensible for the player. He was earlier in his career. He's basically a three point line. Two three point line Shooter at this point if you wanna put it that way in terms of his impact Is there a way out for detroit. Here or what are they doing man the blake griffin situation is is pretty rough Yeah he just hasn't had a very good season not moving. While he's only thirty one which is like hard to believe. Honestly i you just look at them and you think that. He's like in his late thirties. Ve how long he's been in our like our collective conscience and how great he used to be You would like to think that he could have an impact a positive impact on a championship contender. I don't know if that's possible anymore. Especially when he's not hitting the three ball and he's not hitting the three ball even though he takes a bunch of them so i don't know man like it will be. It'll be really interesting if they do. Waive him even though like. I don't have the limit. I'm trying to find the contract numbers. I know he's still oh quite a bit of money. So that's gonna be really interested this year. It's thirty six point five next year. He's got a player option for thirty eight point nine. Oh so you're not gonna get anything close to that this summer. So the buyouts to have to kind of reflect that if they did kind of pursue that direction mean maybe. They're just trying to hope that they can construct a trade to dump him onto someone else's someone else eats that money next year. I don't know how you really get out of that. I mean it could be a situation where they've just decided look man like your body's not they're just take some time and hope that you can kind of get into a better spot but mean it does kind of look unsalvageable for him at this point you know and i hate to say that because there were times for derrick rose where looked unsalvageable to and he's come back to make himself like a valuable role player in certain situation You know is there. A role for a blake griffin lake career bench renaissance where he follows the carmelo anthony model right and he's only play in like sixteen minutes a game and he gives you good sixteen eighteen minutes and that's it Could that be like a second chapter for him. I don't know. But i think this idea of him as fulltime starter. Impact guy or major contributor is is basically done.
