"Anybody sponsor our show. Yeah join the news. Well that's the news. Thanks for stopping by third lie news. You know it's interesting Just kind of cracks me up. Whenever i hear people criticize california are politics and there's hippies and they're all this and that conservatives just loved a lament you know l. a.'s the worst. You may not like it but let me tell you something. Pro athletes do and by the way they get taxed worse than any other pro athlete anywhere in the country outside of maybe a new york athlete because the new york has a city tax. That la didn't have to that level so like new york and la. You know you just you in. These are big cities. Chicago's got a lot of taxes. Why new york chicago have a lot of taxes. They have a lot of people. The infrastructure roads bridges get beat up. Get worn on. He's like it's expensive. But it is amazing. And i hope people in los angeles understand what's happening now in my life of doing this job a very high level. I've never seen the city with more star. so westbrook is now in los angeles. He is a star. And i said this morning. Baseball doesn't have a lot of what you would call stars. They don't market their players as well as football or basketball or even soccer but just look at one. Los angeles has right now in baseball alone. Mike trout shohei otani. And mookie betts. Maybe the three best players max. Scherzer has been the first or second best pitcher for half a decade cody. Bellinger clayton kershaw walker. Buehler's is gonna win the cy young. He's twelve and nobody can hit him. I didn't mention other players who have been all stars. I didn't mention an angel. Who's hurt. Who's been all-star dodger justin turner. That's just in baseball in basketball. Lebron anthony davis westbrook colli. Paul george. I won't list mellow a hall of famer. so i'm not listing all stars. I'm not listing hall of famers then in the nfl stafford. Aaron donald jalen ramsey justin. Herbert joey bosa. I'm also not listing. Guys like andrew whitworth who will get hall of fame votes. This is one is one area. Like atlanta is a massive city. Six million people trae young and matt ryan arguably there to stars neither makes the top ten in los angeles chicago chicago. Third big city in the country khalil. Mack let me let me let me think about this for a second chicago khalil. Mack is a star sack levin lonzo ball. They'll make top fifteen in los angeles. New york's got saquon barkley the nets garrett cole and aaron judge like this is unprecedented. This does not happen in sports. And it's a combination of two things number one. When lebron arrived in this city lebron steals a lot of attention and the dodgers and the chargers and the rams in l. Afc and clippers do not wanna get lost in the avalanche of lebron media coverage. They've all gone way aggressive. And the second thing. Is you as a conservative. May hate la but athletes like it to the. Weather's good because you can hide. You can hide in los angeles. Nobody cares in my neighborhood. I've seen don chill. And bob it. And kelly rutherford in harrison ford and mark harmon. In the last three weeks nobody cares. Nobody cares and so i just hope people in la realize this may never happen again. It is it is insane. Every night you turn on your los angeles teams and their stars and superstars the baseball talent in angels and the dodgers. I listed eight guys. There's another six who have been like four to six trade turner's now in town. It is unbelievable. You kind of glossed over that. He saw don cheadle whatever. What do you mean whatever. Well i say hi don loans. You don't know it wasn't that kind of run in you. Just you can spot somebody. You don't bob sag. It ran me over. Oh i've seen kelly rutherford multiple times at my ju- shop. Harrison ford walked right by me. Mark harmon saddles guy. When you see somebody thirty feet away. Yeah all right well don. If you see corey you'd like to say hey. Yeah that's actually doesn't happen but the truth is attractive athletes because you can just disappear you that it is. I mean you see to your point. You see stars all the time. It is not the same as walking down the street in idaho. And it's lebron james like it's the ron james going to cowboy camp next to her. Be sure to catch.

"anthony davis westbrook" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Minutes. Five seconds always hit the mic on the way up. You know like what's woke up. No sound snow. Sounds i just i can't. There are some long night. 'cause you're by yourself. You're in a poorly lit. Broom closet game is terrible and you know i. I'm just a man. We have noticed in the division of the last eighteen months as we have been separated in ways that are a bit shocking that we cannot agree on much of anything not vaccine's not anything not facts. Not anything i would simply tell you that the world scientists a un report today are screaming at the top of their lungs that the climate change is happening faster than they expected. We are seeing it. An obvious ways flooding cities and places on fire and record breaking heat by five degrees in places that make it the hottest place this planet has ever been today the un replete released its most alarming report to date again the world scientists that the media is an up and down jumping up and down on the story of our lifetime where it's like they're saying hey the world like if we don't get the climate fix this is the biggest story of your lifetime. It's going to end your lifetime. It's not the scientists are saying. This isn't sixty or seventy years anymore that you can. It's like it's happening now. we're in it. This is the beginning of it. Places on fire places flooding. We're we're living in the biblical times. It's hard to focus on that. Dan when there's a pandemic going i'm just you're you're making great points you're right. We probably should be focused and concerned about this. But it's hard when everyone's trying to deal with this with cove. But but covert is just one thing in the biblical apocalyptic times that are happening right now and these are the nation scientists who are screaming. I give you all of this as preface. I know that's not what you're here for to stop that conversation right now because stew. Kat has a major announcement. He says there's a team to beat now in the nba is ready to announce that i don't know what made him come in here off they can have your priority and say look and there is a team to be. I don't know who the team to beat is. But stu gods he's willing to proclaim it now after a few days of free agency i would say it's the nets but i have no trust that those three guys will stay healthy for an entire season and postseason so it is the la lakers. The la lakers to me or the team to beat the nba. I love what they did. While i was on vacation getting russell. Westbrook goes with anthony davis. He goes lebron james. They got some other pieces as well. But i love you might say they don't have any three point shooters we we are listening. We are talking listening. It's all we're doing. Reinforce it choice cheerless now. It's a good point. I'm trying to break that habit. Okay so listen. What i'm telling you here is anthony. Davis westbrook lebron james. That's the best three to me in the nba. It is for this reason because the braga take some nights off. Davis could take some nights off. Westbrook and davis can win gains without lebron westbrook and lebron could wouldn't games without anthony davis. It's so it's a really good three. You plugging guys like wayne ellington. Who could hit threes. wesley matthews. who could hit threes. and. I just think if that team stays healthy. That's the team to beat and also tell you dan. This is the best nba. We've had in a long long time. Like there are a lot of good teams out there at a lot of teams or an injury away from winning an mba championship. If indeed anthony davis gets hurt again because you have superstars spread out all over the league. The nets are good. The bucks are good. The sixers are good. The heat got better. The knicks got better. The suns are good. The mavericks are really good. The lakers clippers. You have the nuggets. it's the best. Nba we've had a long haul time. Ladies and gentlemen. There is a team to beat. And it's the best nba we've had in a long time. Stugatz has moved off his position that the nets are the team to beat. There's an official new team to beat in the nba. After saying they gonesse would hog all the championships as he won one Which would be hard to do if there was another team to beat but he has replaced. The boxes of the team to beat up with the lakers as the team to beat loss. Pj tucker i mean otherwise. The bucks would be the team to beat. Now you say yourself. Perhaps the heat should be the team to beat because they acquired. Pj tucker but they don't have enough okay so the bucks had enough where pj talking enough. Who just the lakers does anyone else have enough. That nets are are second place of having enough. The nets have enough if they could stay. Healthy wells has enough. The knicks don't have enough. I'm gonna tell you that they don't have enough. I have to do it this way. You have to utah jazz. They have enough they do. They will if anthony davis gets hurt. Then they have enough. That's a big qualifier but rudy. Gobert can be terrible in the playoffs because their their best defensive player doesn't play when they put small lineup south i went through all those teams i left at the utah jazz. Who was the best team in the west last year. I mean this is the best. Nba we've had a while. And i am anointing champion in august. Two ladies and gentlemen the lakers of the team to beat in the best nba. We've seen you agree. It's a long time..
"anthony davis westbrook" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"They couldn't keep them on the floor yesterday against spain and they when they really had to make the run a couple of times in the first half in the second half dame wasn't on the floor and it was holiday was the key guy for them and they were using levin n. booker levin or booker with tatum. Durant like Like three of those four and then a big in dame was kind of the odd man out which i thought was fascinating. I think this is a better match up for him. But did you notice that it'd be watching this. 'cause i mean the only guy who isn't consistently locking in getting a lotta stops on the defensive end like you said even the wien is playing so the best defensive is entire like they're they're relying on them for fence which i couldn't believe dame they kinda don't know what to do it because he's that in international point guard he's not a guy who makes everyone else better. He's kind of a clear out crates face for me. But that's under international basketball defensively. Everyone's picking on him but doesn't it speak to. You know the potential of a guy like exactly does she need to get better grades. We've seen him reach twenty seven points per game on offense. We've seen him put in more effort on defense like you're not gonna have him be a stopper every night throughout the entire season. But what if you become a guy who's above average sometimes really good on defense The way the bulls roster looks. I think will change dramatically With the marta rose and lonzo ball and that backward. I think they're gonna be exciting offensively. They're gonna score a lot and if you know maybe at a justice winslow some type of versatile wing you know from the free agent market. Just yeah i'm just. I mean there's not a lot i was pulling out another young ish name we do. We agree on the same thought process. I question is was the rosen. The guy catching Time of his career. Is it a little too late for him. I think if you're chicago fan. He's getting better still belts for real. He's still getting better as a playmate. And as we talked about with russillo last long twos or back to pointers and he's efficient doing it. He's one of the few very happy with shooting over half of his shots from mid range. The funniest thing to me is the bulls fans are just in disbelief that their team actually spent money all them. It's the big difference from gar packs. Yet you're dating a girl or you're married to somebody narrow is going Whatever the crap grocery store near you and then when they come home with whole foods today trader joe's wow laggard trader joe's alkaline water fifty homebrew coffee bottles. I can't believe it. This is great. So i was excited about that. Just before we go on the bose. I really liked the lonzo deal for them. Especially when you saw some of the money that just ranges of like that fifteen to twenty three million dollar range. That guys were kind of bouncing around. And i thought they gotta steal the fact that they didn't have to give up real assets and then they've got him based in twenty million years twenty three years old. We talked about him last last Week still like he's legitimately above average three point shooter. Now he was taking ada game. Last year is thirty eight percent. I think he's really fun to play with. I think he's a better offensive player than i think people realize and I just thought to get him for less than twenty. five million. A year was as stealing. Anthony i'm with you on lonzo. You're getting a defensive playmaker. So good off. The baugh guy who moves it offensively. The ball never sticks in his hands. And i don't wanna play with a guy like that whether you're playing pick up or in the nba. Like it's perfect next to two guys who really going to handle the ball into rosen levin and then caruso too i mean really good wing defender better on ball than lonzo equally potent off the ball. I mean those guys like they're going to have the ability to place a really fun small lineups in chicago. I'm excited to see what they do. It's a great point about the donovan likened. The three guard lineups and having success with that. 'cause you think like lonzo rosen levin caruso and kobe whatever they get at him whether he's just a energy score off the bench or whether he came in stay in the court they did. They will have a lot of flexibility in the east ability to go. It's smaller lineups that because really gonna help them without work with atlanta last year to some degree I'm rooting for lonzo. I talked about it with jackie on sunday. I just feel like if you look at the first four years of his career. It's bad as messed up as you get without a major injury just a new situation. Every year he was never on the right team he never had. The right. coach just was never in the right situation. So maybe this is all right. You got better despite any worked on his question number two what the living hell is this. Laker seem what is this. I do. I like it. It's it's like watching a to k team or something right now. Here's starting lineup. I'm guessing lebron carmelo. Anthony davis westbrook. Monique is a starting lineup. For the off the best tragic done or tucker ellington reason baseball. Dwight howard what the fuck is going to. Kfc what is this yeah. It's it's definitely a to k team..

No reason not to do that as well. And we hope to see you regularly here on. Don't prime if you're not a subscriber. What a wacky 2021 nba draft. It was lots of surprises in the top. Ten or fifteen or so which were fascinating but another even bigger surprise. There'd been a few rumblings to this effect and ironic that we of course did not do the offseason outlook for this team. Which i'm kinda glad we didn't because we wouldn't really have discussed this prospect that much now we can be more accurate knowing that they're big move is made daily cours have russell westbrook on their team. They do and the terms before we get into the substance. The wizards traded russell westbrook a twenty four. Second a twenty twenty eight second to the lakers. For calcutta mma kentavious caldwell-pope mantras herald. Who opt in and the number twenty two. Pick in the draft and this. Yeah the possibility. No the lakers. Going after a high profile point guard was there and it was certainly more plausible for the lakers. To get into the mix on russell westbrook than it was chris paul when you consider the logistical difficulties in the chris. Paul on really wanting to keep him. But this is a massive deal not only because of what russell westbrook star wattage is the twenty sixteen seventeen. Mvp in fixture in the league but because the lakers won the championship their last healthy season and now they have a very different core than they did before. Yeah after this deal. The lakers have four. If i were writing this i would put parentheses and the number four next to that players under contract right now. The new big three of westbrook. James and anthony davis westbrook actually makes the most money of any of those players and they have markelle soul who i guess is coming back. We'll see we'll see about that. There was speculation that maybe that would never be has announced his retirement or anything. So i mean maybe he comes back to their starting center and it they want to do. They can mckinney's nonguarantee. But i imagine that he's not doing that. They expect to play for them. And then you've got the free agency of taylor. Horton tucker and alex caruso markeith morris. They'll have early bird rights on andrei german. They don't have any type of rights on at all and so basically in terms of team building they are limited to minimums and the mini mid level because they are very hard process basically no way that they would be able to get under the apron if they used more of the mid level even just filling out their roster with the needed ten players is going to eat up your fourteen million in room below the apron so they and that also eliminates any realistic sign trade possibilities as well and of course. I think they'd be. They're gonna want to bring back caruso and horton tucker also but i. What is this lakers team. Go into look like we talked about it before a little bit. Right of just the spacing may not be great but they still have a bunch of roster spots spill. Fill out in there to do their magic with subminimum here so last offseason. I heavily criticized. Broad points on the lakers front office for not embracing the understanding. That the lakers best lineups. Were always assuming you built the roster correctly going to have anthony davis at five Lebron james at the four and there are a lot of different things that you can prioritize different things that you can add an that whether that was giving the now departed mantras herald the mid level exception and then tossing danny green and a first round pick for denis schreuder. Shooter was a more you know there was a there was a concept for it but it was. You know i still thought it was was a poor fit in the errol in ran into problems that actually ended up happening and russell. Westbrook is in some ways in many ways. A worst fit with that concept articulated than the other two were and with with heralds partially their differences because he was making so much less money but russell westbrook in half court settings what he does not have. The ball is a massive liability. And if you don't play them with insufficient spacing and defensively. I mean the former pac ten defensive player of the year has that kind of reputation..
