"I really admire the patients and optimism covering these postgame shows and what has been considered the most horrible season this team is in. Also really love Sean's insights every time he's on the show. It's always been a treat, much love from the Philippines. Well, thank you, Adrian, very much appreciated, appreciate the kind words there. Ben mclemore Damien Jones. What do you think? I like it. Ben mclemore can be a guy that can just stretch the floor and give you some money to shooting. And a damage Jones is obviously a guy we definitely want back, please. We're kind of bagging for Damien Jones to come back at this point. Just because of the bigs we've had this season, so yeah, I would love Damien Jones to be back. I would absolutely try to get Damien Jones Ben mclemore. I don't know, I mean he's undersized. You need two way players. I don't think he's that. But Damian Jones, I would definitely Yep. Edwin villanueva Trevor correct me if I'm wrong, but this win is the only win where we beat the opponent by more than ten. This season? No. Did they beat somebody else by more than ten this season? Beat Orlando. I don't know why. I think that's pretty depressing. That's the only game I can think of off the top of my head. I'd have to go back and look and see, but I would imagine they may have done it. I'm sure somebody in the chat can actually go back and take a look. It hasn't happened often. We know that. Yeah, we know that for sure. Dre Johnson blazers. Yeah, blazers end of the year. Okay. That makes more sense. In any scenario, do you see the front office basically knowing the chips stacked against Vogel with the Russ and the roster and just bringing him back? Bringing Vogel back? I think that's done. I think it's done. I just don't see it happening. And I go back to, I think it was done last summer. I think it was done before the team started playing. I think it was done last summer. They gave him a one year extension. In the coaching world, that's you're kind of dead man walking going into the season. That's not much confidence that the organization is showing in you. And now at Vogel, what a championship this year or something? Okay, and then maybe they're looking long term. Okay, we're going to keep them around. But one year extension and this has been the worst Lakers season ever. I just don't see it. I don't see them sticking with him..

"I don't know if it's repackaging of these guys or the trade exception really works and they really can lure a free agent there just not the easiest thing in the world to do. You can't just clear money and say, hey, we're going to get one of the top 6 free agent guys out there. They're going to go to other markets first. And then sell the appeal of playing with aim lower than playing with the guys that are currently under roster. Maybe it takes one domino and then you get the second guy says, all right, the dame, player a, you pull me in there. They have Anthony simons who's emerging, you have Josh hart, then your decent core. But you're probably still too contributors away before they can make that next leap back into the playoff picture. So I'm just going to kind of run through Portland's leading scorer so far this year. Damien Lillard, obviously. CJ McCollum no longer on the team. Norman Powell no longer on the team. And for these simons, restricted free agent this summer, probably going to get a lot of money from Portland and should. He's been really good. He's averaged 20 points for games since he's entered the starting lineup. Useful player, right? Yusuf nurkic, free agent this summer. You see your little out for the year. Valuable piece, moving forward for them, but probably more of like a lower end starting wing slash rotational win. Ben mclemore, just a guy, like minimum scale player. Robert Covington no longer on the team, Larry Nancy and you're no longer on the team. Those are your top 9 in the rotation this year. Yeah. Look, I'll be calling about Damian Lillard at this point. We're back to Dillard. It's game time. Okay. That's all I have to say about that. Like poorly needs to figure out direction. If they did this without consulting game ahead of time and did this without like kind of a real concerted plan in terms of we are going to move dame this summer. And then we're going to move the now in addition to all these guys or we're going to keep them and then bring guys in in sign and trades in order to rebuild the roster around him..

"It's the other parts of his game that she has to be concerned about not look, if the well is completely dry. Like there's nothing left to turn to and free agency, and Carmelo was saying I'll I'll come off the bench for 15 minutes a night and score a little bit. Okay. You can talk me into it. I just don't think that is the guy that you go that you go after, right? And especially for Franklin like Dead. Fred Vogel wouldn't put Ben McLemore on the floor that much even with the Lakers needed, three point shooting because his defense was so bad. What's going to happen with Carmelo, Anthony where he's got that that name, right? Where you feel like you should be out there but he really can't defend either. I mean Frank Vogel would be pulling his hair out, trying to trying to get Carmelo, Anthony play defense. Yeah, that that's the main reason. I don't see a fit defensively. Look, I know that there have been conversations recently about whether or not the defensive aspect of things is a bit overrated. Long, does it matter if you have the number one defense, if you can't score? I don't think Carmelo. Anthony is the fix for that though. I just, I really don't know. I mean, Mellows not a defensive fix wage by any means. I do think his defense has been a little bit better in Portland, a couple of nice steals. He's been able to get even little bit of Rim protection from mellow in Portland recently but still when I'm saying mellow to the Lakers I'm talking maybe the the number three number five you know we've got all the guys we want to get. I'm not saying Carmelo Anthony in 2021 should be off the top free-agent priority but I still think that if there's a way to make it happen, if you've used up every all the Caps face and you got just a little bit left for that minimum veteran contract image. On could be fun. Could be interesting. I've got some people out here that are mentioning that are that are mentioned, of course, Kyle Lowry. But I'm seeing someone who throughout the combination of Kyle Lowry and Lou Williams bringing in both of those guys. I mean when we're talking veteran, those guys are veterans. We're talking about up there in years. Kind of Lottery is 35 heading towards 36 like like this, these are not young guys but tons of what the Lakers need. However, we can get it done on defense. Lou Williams puts the ball in the basket. He gets burned defensively, but I mean, look of kind of our remade into the Lakers in a sign-and-trade situation. I'd be pretty excited about that depending on what they gave up the Williams. I think you'd have to talk me into a little bit at this point, a couple of years ago, Lou Williams? Yes, absolutely. Right now, it's a little bit of a tougher sell Yeah, I'm I'm I'm probably more out on Lou Williams than I am on Carmelo Anthony. Just cuz I mean Lou Williams at least Carmelo Anthony has some size to him, so he's not a good Defender by any means, but he at least kept like put a body on someone and and be big Lou Williams. I mean, you see what happens in the playoffs. He just gets hunted, every time down the floor, I just on a team with with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. I you really need to make sure you don't have holes to defend simply or else..

"Kevin. Thank you very much. There's frustration on both sides, but maybe more so in money. Williams. At this time. How that first quarter came to a close taste he shows might he's a gentleman. He shows great restraint. Would. I can't tell you what I would have said to Cam Johnson, a good friend, Roy Williams coached him. If he's watching this game, he's disgusted. He shot it too early. It cost him two points. That's a major major mistake's. But all said and done. I think Phoenix probably would have taken down one starting the second. They don't teach that in Moon Township, Pennsylvania. That's John Calipari's hometown. Right outside of Pittsburgh Airport. Chris Paul's back in Phoenix Pull this giant the second Johnson around the moving stream that draws the whistle and Automatic. Yeah. That Frank Comiskey. It sure is. Do a dribble handoff in this league and the defender falls down. It is going to be an offensive foul. It is gonna have to eliminate dribble handoffs from everybody's offensive are Different place because it's called all the time. James on the dribble handoff here to Cozma. Lot of the ramp who's been finds common for the alley, you dunk Lakers by 3 26 23 John, by the way, 10 points in the paint for the Lakers in the first period if you remember 26 of them in that third quarter and last game Johnson with a paint bucket is he drives in from the left way 14 points in the paint already for the sons, 26 25 James. I think LeBron had 20 drives to the rim Last game, James tried to exchange it up top to lose. Russo saved it over to Koosman Wing left jacks up the three and dropped it in basically caught his own pass. Right through the ball bounce pass on the intended receiver just left. So LeBron went and got it tapped it over there. That's a unfortunate miss right there by the official Chris Paul just took up shot passed through the lane. On the right side. The paint Johnson slot run. No Good tip Follow. Won't go either. For Tory. Craig Drummond clears it. That's his job. Send out the Koosman quickly. James James of the 20 drives last game, the most of any game this season. For him. He holds a jump behind the back pass way left and a three buried off catch by Ben McLemore is a result. The sizzling insists he is all over Tony Brothers saying, What did LeBron do? Tony either didn't see it, or I don't know the rule because he threw the bounce pass. And then when it wasn't picked up Went after it tipped it to his teammates that got them and open three red bar. Nikki's explaining the money right now, I don't think money's gonna buy the express the only ones not into get Mark Davison and let him try and explain it. Also, all three of them are going to try. It's gonna fall.

"Shout out to Talen horton-tucker for saying, you know, no LeBron. So I am LeBron. Yeah, that's basically what he tried to do tonight. Kobe Kobe Bryant not allowed to shoot, whatever shot, he pleases Talen Horton, Tucker at twenty years old in his second NBA season has not yet earned that. Right? I probably won't especially on a play. That's clearly grown up for Anthony Davis and I'm not he knocked on the shot and it was a gutsy play and it was great. Right? He read, what the defense gave him, the defense, gave him the shot. He took the shot, he hit it. But let's not pretend like this is was it's a masterpiece of a game from in Horton Tucker. It wasn't he had a number of plays that that were just frankly bad. He had some really bad turnovers sometimes where he looked 28th is okay. He can look twenty because he is 20, right? So it's all right for him to do that. It was a big shot. It was a good shot that he had it. Yes, it was a shot that Kobe would have taken no question, but tht is in Kobe. Nobody is there. I usually Kobe. Is Kobe tht is not that. Yeah, I I you know, THD he made it congrats to him again, I'm holding off on as much slander as I as I can, but overall was not a great night for him but he made up for it by hitting the shot and winning the game for the Lakers. So I have to give him credit. Where credit's to Tom, Lee makes the point. The tht should not have had the ball that much agreed agreed. And I think Frank Vogel would agree with that too. I would not have the ball that much if it wasn't for the fact that every other guard was hurt. Now the Lakers point guard rotation for this game was Talen horton-tucker, Kyle kuzma. Yeah, neither of those people are point guards at all. No. And that's that was out of necessity. That Taylor Horton. Tucker had the ball as long as he did. For sure, I've got a people asking, is Anthony Davis playing tomorrow. He said he wants to play, but we'll see. We'll see if he actually gets out there. Not said that his groin was tight enough to where it was causing him pain. Again. If it's me, if I'm the Lakers I'm saying, no way, shut down, I know it's bad or night. Why risk it will see though? If you actually gets out there depends on what the Lakers medical staff has to say. Somebody asking about Caruso's injuries damage. We have not heard on him, I'm sure he's day-to-day as well. He nothing is broken in his foot. Nothing is torn. He's dealing with with just a bad bruise and so that can be really painful hard to play through the you just you you let him rest up. Yeah. It's just about managing soreness with it. Exactly. Brian Wasserman said, would we have an easier win of Crusoe didn't get injured? Yes, in fact, we pointed out during the watch party. A few plays. We're Talen Horton. Tucker didn't make the right player didn't make the right read defensively. In fact there was a play where Ben McLemore didn't make the right read defensively. In terms of closing out on a shooter and Caruso would have. So, yes, I think it would have been an easy win. Had Crusoe played.

"I mean, he was, he was start off with just a few weeks ago. He was a starter when Anthony Davis was out and now here he is, once again pretty much relegated to the bench, I guess the the good thing is Vogel has other options. If he doesn't turn it around, vogel's got other options to turn to, but the ideal scenario is not. I'm going to go to player X because this guy's playing poorly. It's everybody's playing poorly and not have to figure out what the best matchups are. Yeah. And, and Marquis Marquis, and Wesley Matthews have been in the same boat, where they've been played out of the rotation, and then played back in, and then starting and played back out, like, they've been on a roller-coaster this season. So, right now, Wesley Matthews is that like the peak of his powers and Markieff Morris is that like the absolute Valley of his power. So home, We they both can reach that Peak at the same time cuz if they're both playing well, that's a lot of really Savvy. Veterans that can win you games. If Markieff Morris was a stock, I'd be buying right now. Yeah cuz it can't get much lower. Yes. Yeah. It's not going to get much lower and, you know, he's still going to get opportunities to bring that value back up KB. The goat from YouTube to Trevor, should we look to keep Ben McLemore long-term? I think it depends on the price tag, but if he's a guy, you can keep around for say, like a veteran-minimum deal or something. And again, I don't know if you would take that, right? I'm not saying that, but if he's sitting there and you've got a veteran-minimum to offer and he will take that. There's no reason why you wouldn't. Yeah, I mean I definitely would keep him around for that and he's shown that he can hit threes 40% from 3 tonight, 245. He's able to get hot quickly and knock those in and on a team with LeBron James, that's important guys who can space the floor and knock in threes, and it also doesn't hurt that. He's a clutch Sports clients. Oh, yes, he's somebody. I'd like to keep if I have to pay him more than the vet minimum, if I have to give him a five million, a year contract to keep him around. Now, I'm dipping in to an exception of mid-level exception, something like that, then that's where it starts to get a bit more questionable, but I think he's been he's been good in his role. Yeah. And it you said it right. I mean it's it's a veteran-minimum or he can go somewhere else. I mean like he is when everyone is healthy he is the wage twelve. Maybe thirteenth man in the rotation I'm not paying more than the veteran minimum for guys 12 through 15 on the roster. Yeah yeah and they can't the Lakers aren't in a position where they can do a job. Certainly..

"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,

"If you have a healthy D aren't aren't happening, so I, I think I get the frustration. I I know that, you know, it's it's just, it's Laker, fans are spoiled because we want the good stuff right away all the time come but no, no, no, no, no. We're spoiled. So, I get the frustration, but I thought you will work his way back. And I, I do expect him to be at or near near his peak level come playoff time. So I'm not super concerned but you would like to see a senior. Absolutely absolutely. You know, through them to games here, Anthony Davis, 7 for 29 from the field and he is over 7 from 3, so not not great. But again, we expected there to be rushed, maybe we're hoping it wasn't going to be quite this long. Much rust. But again, it's about getting a melting getting him. One hundred percent for the playoffs and that is going to take some time and he was off, he missed 30 games, he was off for over 2 months and with the leg injury like that, it's not like you could, it's not like a, he broke his left hand or something, where he can still be out running and cutting on the floor and shooting in that type of thing. This was something where he's, you can't even take, jump shots with him about the injury that he had. So, it's going to take a little bit of time for him to get fully back. Hopefully, that will hit a game here where it'll just click, right? We're things will just fall into place and then boom took off and running. But tonight, we're certainly not that night. Yeah, we've seen flashes though, if you had a nice post move where we, you know, went up to the fender really quick, floated it up in the rim deck, that looked like PKD. So it's there. I think the jumper will come. I think it really is a matter of getting his legs, back under him. Like you said, it's a leg injury. So your jumper is going to be affected, no matter what. And so given more game reps. I'm happy that he's trying to shoot that many because I think, once you start to see them go down, they'll build up his confidence again to so something to keep in mind going forward. Also the over-under on this game was 217 points, obviously not going to hit that with the Lakers shooting as poorly as as they did in this one but the take the other man's. Yeah. This was definitely an under game here, but the Mavs were the favorite by appointing a half easily covered that with the Laker Squad five points in the second half. So in terms of betting, if you pick the Babs and you pick the under and you're having a pretty good now, tonight, Having a better night than us. Like yes, by the way guys you notice we haven't done the next man up award. I don't feel like doing the next man on board, I don't feel, I don't feel that this team really stepped up, so I don't think we're even going down the next man up. Although I will give a quick shout out to our guy, Ben McLemore, who I think made the most of his opportunity. He was have the first half, maybe not so much in the second half but still overall on the 9th stepped, in fact, six 4:10 from 3:20 points stepping in for an injured, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope yet another injury and injured ankle here, but Ben McLemore I thought did step up tonight. Yeah, he was good. He was well on his way to a really hot..

"The, the guy in the chat. Yeah, it would just, it wasn't a lot that they use coupon. Check. So that's probably where you could have missed it. Chris Thomas, Christopher Thompson from YouTube said, are you concerned or offense has become stagnant with a d back now. Relying too much on him to score know, I think the Lakers were feeding the ball to page service in order to get them going. They did the same thing with drum and drum its first game because they recognize that, hey, he, we, we need to get him going and so they fed him the ball of bunch. And I think they did that with Anthony Davis. I don't think that's Skin to happen long-term I think it's going to become a lot more natural but yeah, they have to adjust now to Anthony Davis being back. I think that's that's all that is. Don't you love it? When you look in the chat and you see somebody like with an Anthony Davis, profile pic and their name is Anthony. Davis in probably really is Anthony Davis too. I'm sure they're very you know they said Laker Nation. The sky is falling. No that's from Anthony Davis. Sky is not falling. Sky is not falling off of our members from YouTube. Do you think Wes and Gasol deserve minutes? I think you can make a stronger argument for Gasol than Wes right now. I thought it was interesting that Ben McLemore got the minutes over West. I think if LeBron comes back, Ben McLemore is probably the one to lose minutes and then That's it. I mean, what's a maximum of both be on the outside looking in and you ten man rotation off the bench would be tht and Caruso and then you would have kuzma Markieff and Treads and I think thier bench unit and that's probably the way things are looking right now. I don't think Wes Matthews has earned those minutes. I think he's been very inconsistent shooting the ball defensively. He's been okay, but I I think it's all has a stronger case right now. Four minutes the West Matthews does Yeah, that shooting slump that like him and Casey. He just kind of never. He never came out of, you know, he never really got got going offensively and luck. Now we're seeing cases P kind of come back to form. So yeah it's unfortunate but he hasn't really earned more time. Chris, somebody says Chris you should be part of the MCU. The Marvel Cinematic Universe? Yeah, they're saying, who would you play like? I mean, like, Batista got a whole lot of tracks. Yes. Yeah I would have never known drag. So like did you know about the about drugs and all those characters before the Guardians of the Galaxy before the movies home? Cuz I wasn't even aware. I knew drags I knew a few of them but not but there were a few that I didn't. I wasn't super familiar with with Rocket Raccoon or Groot because they were kind of, like, newer characters had heard of like, Star-Lord and Gamora and and some of the other characters. But but I definitely knew Drax cuz he's hit that character has been around for a while. But who would you? Who would you play?.

"Lane from lakersnation.com. The Lakers did come up short against the Celtics but man what a comeback rally they launched the not even the package unit. It was like the third unit you had guys like Devante Kostas antetokounmpo in their leading the charge trying to get the Lakers back in the game came up just short but they did Force the Celtics to put their starting wage back in to a game that looked like it was pretty much over. So a little bit of a moral Victory there. We're going to break it all down plus take all of your questions and comments. And of course give away some lakersnation.com license plate frame. So if you're coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Periscope tells us your questions and comments joining me tonight our own government and Chris Masters, you know, I'm already seeing some comments seeing Trevor's years so fast on these he's slacking used to come on right after the game ended guys. The reason why it took us a couple of minutes to come on is because we did the watch party tonight over on the hot my cap if you missed Thursday, You missed out because you had Chris myself and Ron during the entire game Talking Lakers basketball with everybody. So make sure next time. We do one you come over and join us. It does just take a couple more minutes to to switch over to the post game show, but guys, how are you doing? you know, I It was really depressing there during our live stream for a few minutes as the Lakers were down by twenty-four twenty-five, but give credit to that third unit Devon take a cock Ben McLemore Kostas antetokounmpo tht and Ben McLemore with a five in there. No, Alfonzo mckinnie was in there for a little bit to those five-day led the charge. They were really fantastic brought it all the way back to Five Points from this game at a lot of really good moments. But yeah, this is just an example of the birth injury bug just making it so hard to win games against teams that just have more available Talent. Yeah, and I saw a lot of people in the chat, you know, when we first started this show here talking about I'm mad about that one. And I think that kind of sums it up, you know, like, you know, like Ron said it was getting to the point where I was, you know, getting kind of gloomy in our watch along but I mean the Lakers really fought especially, you know, basically like you were saying Ron Baker basically all our bed were essentially gave it to the Celtic there and went on a nice run at the end and fours Jaylen Brown course Jayson Tatum back in and I don't think any of us, you know, we've had so many guys down and then on top of it we don't have Morris tonight and it's just, you know, you can't, you know, we're probably going to lose but you know, you like to see the kind of fight we saw tonight..

"Was a dog Did not play coach's decision that wasn't necessarily the case. He was actually hurt dealing with a hamstring issue Jared Dudley. Who am I forgetting? Like did I say Wes Matthews? That's like I feel like the list of players who were actually available tonight is shorter than the list of players who were out hurt and you had all these different guys Step Up Drummond have this huge night with Gasol off knowing that there wasn't another real Center option in their side for Montrezl Harrell who looked Rez he did his thing. I thought France was physical in there. He was good as well. He was only four 410 shooting but eight boards two blocks ten points. He made an impact man. Everybody stepped up. I had somebody and everybody somebody had a chat said next man up is really everybody and yeah, you picked tht popular slash router. I picked Drummond, but we really could have said six seven guys probably from tonight's game and made a strong argument and I love nights like birth. I like I actually like what that viewer said, you know what I mean even better than you and I I think it was in a game like this every single player was the next man up that in that kind of goes into what we're saying. Like there's not one guy on the team that you're down on or you felt like didn't contribute tonight. Like I'm just this is you know, I'm just so proud of this team. I mean, I don't I can't think of a game that I've been this proud of the Lakers in a long time. I've got from YouTube coming in mocks folder from YouTube says with the Super Chat says has Ben McLemore already took in West Matthews potential minutes with that three-point shooting. I'm not ready to go there. I'm not going to say the West Matthews is just out of the rotation because you've dealing with an injury. He had to kill his title. That's not great. That's definitely not good going into the game, especially for a veteran player like West Matthews 34, so that stuff but Ben McLemore, I don't think that like if off Is healthy next game against the next he's going to play. I don't think that it's that Vogel just looks at and goes up. Sorry Wes, you're out Ben McLemore just made five three. So your minutes are gone know I think that they will still page him. But this was a really strong showing now. We know McLemore can be a a streaky shooter and he didn't shoot well and his last game but remember he's also brand new takes time for him to get adjusted, but he definitely showed no fear tonight again. She took 10 threes. He took more threes than anyone else on the team by a lot. The next closest was six threes from k c p. So Macklemore Macklemore was not afraid to shoot off and he knocked him down Seventeen points and he hit him at a critical junctures when the Nets were thinking. Hey, we get to stop here. Maybe we can turn this thing. Nope, Ben McLemore knocks in a three..

"This was a big game nationally televised and I don't feel like the moment was too big for tht Yeah, and I think you know just the preparations gotta be paying off. I mean the experience are getting the the playoff experience last season because like you said it, you know with Dennis router going out. It really ended up having to be the to kind of filled that void for Dennis Schroeder and Denny Schroeder had really kind of set the tone in that first half. I kind of feel like Dennis Schroder, you know, you probably heard Laker Nation collectively groan after the last name, even though we talked about this and he did he didn't score officially at all. He did a lot of other things in life, you know for a guy who's just turned down the contract he has and and and and is expecting a better deal. You know, we talked about this we need we need at least better offense than that last game and boy, did he give us that tonight? You really just stepped up and then yet teach you kind of had to take over there and I think he did a good job. He was tremendous Al Corso from YouTube with the Super Chat said Trevor thumbs up for McLemore wage. Absolutely, and we're going to get into him and just a minute. We've got a ton to talk about with Ben McLemore and the vibe spot experience with another Super Chat from YouTube said the Lakers are running a different playing scheme right now is showing their skill and depth. Yeah, they were tremendous tonight just in terms of everybody top to Ireland thought Alfonzo mckinnie made some really nice plays for the Lakers. They had everybody come in and contribute and I loved that back to Dennis shooter though. Hurt he gets hurt. He tries to he takes that charge on Bill Hannon. I'm sorry Blake Griffin. He takes it takes charge on him gets hurt on the play and he's limping around the the rest of the game that he's in he does get ejected later on. We're going to talk about the officials in just a bit as well. But he manages to fight through it. He plays through injury and I know right now some of us myself included I would consider myself in this group are a little bit frustrated with Dennis shooter and bewildered by the fact that he's not accepting this extension for the Lakers and the frustration stems from the position of puts the Lakers in heading into the offseason like to see that right but it's moments like this that endeared Dennis Schroder to all of us you think about him stepping up and saying I'm going to pay for Montrezl Harrell's fine. We're going to make sure he doesn't pay that. He stepped in for me against OG anunoby and Gary Trent Jr. In that Raptors game, right? So that that's one thing right you think wow. This is a a great teammate here and now here he is fighting through an injury because he no, This is a big game for the Lakers and how important this one would be. He's limping around grimacing clearly in pain and yet he stays in the game and keeps on fighting and I just love to see that from shooter. Yeah, I definitely appreciate it. Like like you were saying I think he obviously he knew that we needed him. Like we couldn't really afford to be down dentist router really especially took with you know, when Tyree was still out there, but I think you know it ended up all working out in the end because you know with.

"He could he could go five-for-five or night and then go over 12 the next and that is totally normal of him. And so when you take a guy like that and put him just thrown into the deep end like you said it's going to be really really hard to turn out a good performance. So I have nothing to take away just cuz like how could you move expected him to play? Well given the circumstances he signed his contract like 16 hours ago home. Yeah. I don't same thing with me kind of I mean, I don't think it was necessarily a bad or a great performance. I was just that first shot he put up and didn't look comfortable at all, obviously, but I think he did end up scoring right? What are we saying? He had for the game of we can pull it up here on the night. He wound up with six points four of those coming from the free throw line 144 shooting from the field. He did hit. It was bought. Like a 15 to 18 foot jumper that he had. Yeah, well, I think you know we still just wait we're gonna have to see more for have you can't really take much out of this for all the reasons we just said, yeah. I mean it was it was pretty much. Hey so been this is what we do on defense. Here's what we do on offense. Got it. Okay, cool. You're in like that's that that was pretty much the last few hours here for Ben McLemore. So tough to pass Judgment at this point. Okay, guys, let's get into our first true segment here of the night the next man up award if you're watching this on YouTube on Facebook on Periscope.

"We will see if that plays out on the floor though because it doesn't always Yeah, no for sure. I think the continuity thing is a if anything, that's the most that's the most concerned about because the regular season for the Lakers is typically always been since LeBron's come is to acclimate with the team and get used to playing with new teammates that obviously has not been the case this season throw in everything else that they have to do in terms of covert protocols and testing the travel schedule etcetera. Like there's just so many things working against them right now. So yep, there is pause for Lakers repeat. It's those things but I do trust the bronze to figure those things out. But yeah back to back to his question. I I do think this Lakers team is, you know, top three for sure in terms of talent. I don't know if it's generally the best but maybe maybe they just destroyed everyone in the playoffs and now I have to revisit this question. Yeah, absolutely. And that's it right after the playoffs. We will see this team through a different lens either for the positive or the negative. So yeah. All right guys appreciate all of you joining us always fun when we get to talk about a Lakers win particularly win when their offense look good defense look good not something that happens.

"All right, Matt broad. So who is your next man up for the Lakers for this game? And I love that. We've got a lot of options. We we've got so many options that I'm so tempted to pick something against the grain. Like can I pick Ben McLemore for the shooting boost? Even though he didn't suit up tonight? Is that a thing the Lakers or 45% free since Ben McLemore signed think that's a hell. Yeah. So we we talked about how he would address the three-point shooting need we didn't necessarily say he'd be the ones hitting all the threes right now. Okay, I'm going to be serious. I think I think that there's there are a few good options here. I think I'm actually going to go with THD tonight surprisingly just saw the staff from lakerfilmroom. This is actually the first game that teach these ever led the Lakers in scoring with sixteen which again not much of a not much of a high-scoring not much of a high scoring night. But that just comes to speak to how well balanced the offensive attack was but I thought tht was good tonight does what he does gets to the rim knock down to three had a couple of ones but we're going to just ignore those and focus on the good ones. Yeah. I thought he had us all at night all around gave the team scoring punch kept the Raptors at Bay when they looked like they might go on a little bit of Rome. Make it more of a game. So Props it to you. See you tonight good for him. That's a great pic. And I would I would pick somebody else right just a mix it up a little bit. I think there's some guys we could certainly say Markieff Morris with dead birds and 15.6. My second shooting. He was was also great. But I mean if I'm being realized that tht was the bigger Difference Maker on the night, he was tremendous and here's what I really love is not seen a Talen horton-tucker that has been may be hesitant is the word I want to use for as a three-point shooter right THD has been a little bit reluctant to take that shot because he hasn't shot it very well. He's been the worst 3-point shooter on the Lakers sitting right around the mid-20s twenty-five twenty-six percent right in there tonight. We saw an aggressive Talen Horton Tucker. That was not only taking the shots, but the shot looked better looked like he was shooting it with confidence. He was shooting it knowing he was going to make it rather than shooting at hoping he didn't miss it and there is a difference there. And so Talen Horton Tucker tonight. I thought was tremendous did have four turnovers. But again, The amount of of time he spent handling the ball 26 minutes tonight. I think we'll be okay with that 6 is this for board 17 points? Like you said, he was fantastic fantastic and this is now three good games in Iraq. Then I have to wonder, you know, we talk about revenge games Matt. Is there such a thing as like like an anti revenge like the Raptors were trying to trade for Taylor Tucker and they couldn't couldn't get that done at 5ghz had to go out and show them just how good he really is. I think that might be part of it. It's like hey, look what you guys could have had but I'm going to just decide to destroy you tonight..

Ben McLemore 26 minutes Markieff Morris 45% Matt broad Taylor Tucker Lakers Talen Horton Tucker sixteen three Matt Iraq three-point first game 17 points Raptors tonight three good games twenty-six percent 15.6

"It's not like this is new ride drumming is known for a while now. I mean, how long ago did the Cavs send him home that he was going to be going somewhere else and that most likely he was going to be bought out that they've probably wasn't going to trade for him. And so dramatist had a while to think about this. I don't think it's going to take that long for him to come to a decision. At least. I hope that it doesn't and I hope that he does pick your Los Angeles Lakers. But again, we'll have to wait and see right now. I would anticipate him making that decision tomorrow, I would hope but again that's just going off of what mode should said about how he's expecting a decision within 24 hours. The Celtics want him somebody mentioned. Yeah. There's a lot of teams that want Andre Drummond. That's it's not a surprise at all. Somebody said asmodai said what about Jabari Parker? I'd I don't think he's exactly what the Lakers need there in terms of a wing player. I know he's a big name and a number to pick formally and the NBA draft but is that a lot of chances and it just hasn't quite worked out with him. I would like to see a workout with him. I would love to see him figure out some way to resuscitate a career but I don't know if the Lakers have that opportunity for him to do that. I hope somebody picks him up and he gets an opportunity and he gets another chance and he proves himself and he sticks and I would love to see that happen. I just don't know that the Lakers are the right fit there. Ben McLemore, somebody mentioned sure. Yeah, Ben McLemore would be an interesting fit as well in terms of you know, you can question maybe the defense but I seem to remember him dropping a lot of Threes on the Lakers. A lot of people asking though about gorgui Jing. Yeah, I think I think that's another one and I like that he's out there at least right? Because we've been talking about what is the fallback? What if Drummond decides? No, I just want to stay on the East Coast. I'm not going to La I'm going to go to Boston. That would be awful or I'm going to go to New York because they're going to give me multiple years. That's the the other issue. Here is New York's got cap space. Maybe they offer him a multi-year deal because that's the gamble right now for Drummond is he wants to go somewhere that will give him a lot of minutes so that he can earn a another big contract in the offseason the Knicks can just offer him a contract now and then maybe he doesn't have to worry about like betting on himself for the next few months..

"That trade cuz and I if if you're trading those planes are you talented enough anymore to win with just the James Harden? I don't know if you wants a good question that couldn't get that yesterday end-of-the-year ultimately, but I do think you know in a router back there. You probably fight to keep Gordon in that case. But you know, they've Terrence Ross to ultimately though we're talking about a team stuck in the middle. So maybe even with just hard and you can boost your level a little bit with that group and some role players. Like I saw like Houston's been thrown out all stars say between Daniel house and Ben McLemore and some of these other guys like even at Center last year off from J Tucker Ikea he's done a lot with a little before and I just think you know and isn't as desperate spot now these ownership get behind that that's a whole another question there, but What major free-agent has ever gone to Orlando? Like it's not that type of a of a that's that's my point to like they don't have a chance to acquire a player like that ever. Like this is really the only chance off. Yeah. It's like Toronto better stick around your the championship pedigree Pascal siakam was you know struggling at the moment, but if you're using a key, I mean he's not exactly twenty two bucks. You saw the number they put together last year and maybe change change of scenery is is in order and then you know, whether we're talking the other Wings, it's Bobby a big know you got options. Yeah. I think it's a better package deal to compare to Orlando. I want to say this on our YouTube channel. Jeff retracted his Jaylen Brown statement today boy after 18 know yourself, but you can check that video off YouTube channel after the show. I would hold on for a cat and he games lesser man would have held on to that take for a lot longer. Yeah. Now you come in Swinging with another take off. The Jaylen Brown dude now now now he could have held on to it for one more game and actually had a little bit of a case out of this on the night. This is the first game where Brown struggled a little bit but man, that's how good those first date were wage. And you know what brown brown struggled but he was still there at the end of game hit that big 3/4 third, you know, you know, he's still filled out the box scores like he's still doing enough out there where I mean, he did have that rough start and and that's okay..
