Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals
"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited

"That they mentioned Brian James I think that the mere mention of lebron James number twenty three now give me a minute self defense and in my eyes it's not even close okay not only did Michael Jordan have the juror no one had the competitiveness with the killer instinct this guy had when it counted but even if you look at statistics important statistics white defense like feels like blocked shots and that what shots they will meet in the biggest moments the fact that the blind that someone can actually I don't know if you guys agree with that but the fact that you can bring that up in the Senate compare that Michael Jordan is a joke well couple things first of all we want to championships abroad when number six okay so let's let's start added it was number six in Miami to which every ship the one he did go to H. great finals we didn't do that there is something to add and didn't exactly have the best team every time you went I know we had the the teams in Miami were pretty good I don't know but the teams in Cleveland you know he goes up for years in a row in Cleveland and didn't you date one one and didn't exactly have the greatest team is in Jordan probably not but I mean I could see where he's in the conversation I don't think it's any yeah in the US it's some slap you know it's an injustice that he's wearing number twenty three yolo G. as in Cleveland I guess now in LA no I mean I think Michael Jordan I think Michael Jordan is the greatest I've ever seen but it's certainly not offensive to bring up lebron James I mean first of all and we've talked a lot about this they're very different in a lot of ways there is a different then notice warriors score a Mike you know I always felt that lebron is more comparable to Magic Johnson with the kind of game he played to be honest with you yeah and I think defensive statistics are very very difficult to look at I think a block shot in a steel is not always the best way to define great reference right so I wouldn't sit there saying well who had more steals who had more blocks I think lebron when he wants to is a tremendous defensive player and arguably the best play in lebron James is a NY that's exactly right it's a blocked shot a question about it it's more than just applying that and we won a championship form basically in that moment as he's running full speed so I think you can say Michael Jordan the greatest of all time but not be offended yeah that lebron's in the conversation lebron is an all time great all time great he's clearly look he's probably top five he's clearly in the top ten that ever played the game not even the debatable and the crazy thing about lebron James is right now in this moment he's thirty five years old thirty five years old no not exactly a spring chicken and he is coming off a season this year in which I wouldn't have said he's the MVP but he was top two top three he's in the discussion and has the most valuable player in the league I average twenty five eleven eight this season at thirty five right on his way to another title I mean we don't we may never know the answer to that or we may get an NBA title but I'm sure many will dispute then because he wanted really he's thirty five and he's not exactly showing a lot of signs of slowing down so his story isn't done yet I mean this could be a guy Joe that plays into his forties it's possible like you say whatever you want about lebron like I said he went to eight straight finals in the finals what nine times in his career and you could say well he only won three lost six times in a finals okay you could say that but I don't think there's any question that you have to look at this guy as being one of the greats ever played the game I mean I don't see how you are you don't say that but I I think he has a lawyer you know let's it we know we we have a suite of dollars is so great you know he is not looked at as as favorable ease not as popular a figure if you will as Jordan this year all right so he's got more of a negative feel to him in Jordan Nevin well I think there are two things that may lead to that number one just not liking him he's not a likeable and I really started when he decided to leave to go to Miami right with it but the second thing is and I think our last caller brought up right out of the gate he admitted he doesn't love this era basketball center right out of the gate this is not my favorite of basketball you don't have to love this era to respect this era not to love it you have to respect that there are great players playing basketball over the last

"Is the same as they would be able to do but is the Brian James in all these different elements of the expected from him so that was John is today talking about lebron James they play the Lakers tomorrow Lakers box that's the Thursday night game tomorrow so the NFL there that with Thursday night football so the NBA is is happy to pick up and they're gonna put to their marquee teams on Thursday tomorrow the thing is the point that he makes about lebron James is probably the greatest not ours the greatest love knocks the box early there quick word there I think that's his greatest argument for being the greatest player of all time I do think that lebron has too many holes in his resume to ever be the greatest player of all time he's lost into many finals he's lost into many big moments he's changed teams too many times I don't think that when it's done a majority of people are going to look at lebron as the greatest player of all time now if he wins this championship with the Lakers and he takes three separate franchises to a championship and maybe he gets the five rings because he went back to back with the Lakers maybe we can revisit that conversation but right now I really don't think it's a conversation and I love lebron James is my favorite after but one argument I do think that he's going to have is the high level in which she is playing with how many games he's played I understand that his path is a little bit different because he went straight to high school were Michael Jordan went to North Carolina for a few years lebron James has been arguably the best player in the NBA since he was twenty three years old since the game against the Detroit Pistons and you know the one that I'm talking about the game six the Eastern Conference finals and I think that was lebron's first I am the best player in the NBA moment he scored twenty seven points I believe consecutive in that game they won they were on the road and lebron was amazing in that game we certainly had other great moments since then but I think that was the first lebron moment where she was introduced to everybody as the chosen one as King James he's been the best player in the NBA in my opinion since that point he's thirty four years old and he turns thirty five in twelve days for lebron CB playing at the level that he is playing at right now but I would give lebron MVP I understand that Lucas having a really good season Yanis is having a good season James Harding is putting up video game numbers at this point there is no player more valuable to their team's success this year then lebron James they don't trade for Anthony Davis without lebron James without his connection with rich Paul without him making this up without him making the decision to jump to Los Angeles they're not in this position if for him to of all of it develop his game the way that he's involved into where he's turned into a point for where he's playing war point guard at thirty five years old give me I think lebron is the best player in the NBA and certainly the most valuable player in the NBA but this feels like one of those years we just give it to somebody else because we're tired of lebron James winning this is the year that we give to Lucas and I'm not seeing Luke is not worthy of MVP for you to be doing the things that he's doing at his age we haven't seen that since lebron James or Kevin Durant lebron is thirty five years old and he's been playing NBA basketball since he was nine team says the Bron James was nineteen years old he's been in the NBA in this season he has been absolutely incredible one eighty five leading the NBA in assists he is twenty five eleven and eight rebounds a night at thirty five years old now I know lebron is on this whole wash king thing and I never was on this watch king I never thought the lebron was washed but I'm not gonna lie to you I had eyes for the players are of being the best in the world I entertain the possibility that Kawhi winner with the best player in the world I entertain the possibility that yacht as was the best player in the world I entertain the possibility to Kevin Durant was the best basketball player in the world but I came back home it's a Brian James will lebron is doing at this stage in his career is on hold up we have never seen a room NBA player maybe this side of Kareem doing what lebron is doing at his age and with this usage not Kareem is probably the best comparison because green played into his forties and he still played at incredible level that's probably the only player in the modern era that can say I played at this level this long into my career but at this point Colby's body had started to break down like Colby at this age wasn't considered the best player in the world it was still a good player to some extent but I don't know if you could look at Kobe Bryant at this stage in his career at age thirty five and feel like you were watching the best basketball player in the world I mean that was twenty third that was the twenty thirteen twenty fourteen season he only played in six games because he popped his Achilles and he never was the same player after that never was the same player lebron's playing as well now one thirty five that he was when he was playing Cleveland the first time scored twenty six twenty seven a night dishing it out giving eleven assists the night pulling down eight rebounds leading a team playing every night I think lebron the best player in the world I think he's the MVP infer Jana's who actually think is an alien and a player that we maybe haven't seen that other than Kevin Durant and his size his ability is ability to finish at the ram how long he is on the defensive and I think Yanis is an absolute unical work for him to say the lebron is an alien he's right he is an alien I don't think that we've seen too many players in the list of players are doing what lebron is doing at his age it sure it's will it's Kareem and that's probably it we certainly haven't seen me guards at this dominate at their stage in the career and the body type for lebron aside from last year he hasn't really broken down and last year I think was a very clear everyone knew that the Lakers will going anywhere and lebron really did push himself but I don't think he was ever mentally locked in last season I think he's mentally

"Morning the pro basketball league suffered consequences from China when a team executive wrote down his opinion about Hong Kong in a tweet now the NBA faces criticism from Hong Kong protestors supporting democracy there have noticed the back peddling statements from NBA stars like lebron James yes we all do have freedom of speech but at times there are ramifications for the negative that can happen we are not thinking about others in only on your think much yourself so many people could have been harmed not only financially but physically emotionally spiritually so just be careful we which we that's lebron James sometime ago Jordan Ritter Conn rights for the online journal the rigor and is just back from Hong Kong good morning how much did people follow this story in Hong Kong very closely Hong Kong is like mainland China a place that is in the NBA that follows the NBA but right now in particular people who are involved in the protest movement of following any bit of international news that has anything to do with their movement and so they were following everything from mores initial tweet to all of the aftermath extremely close when people really put in particular latched on to well the Brian James that as the week most famous player as the best player over the last decade he is he is the person who who everyone there has had some name recognition for and as soon as he waited and there was on one hand people extremely disappointed and frustrated and saying they like everyone in the NBA except for lebron James and burning his Jersey and on the other hand people who just don't really excited that dismissed the people were talking about their calls this the people talk about what's going on there okay burning the Jersey active protest but of course China when China was unhappy with Daryl Morey of the Houston Rockets for his tweet they were able to impose a pretty substantial financial penalties on the NBA by interrupting the NBA's business in China has Hong Kong found anyway besides burning jerseys to put pressure on the NBA on their side no no they they're not it does but I mean it's it's a city of seven million in in a country of one point four billion thirty key economic interest for the for the NBA's test just paled in comparison and so it really at this point all they are trying to do is it's talk about it and and continue talking about it and and make sure that their their voices are heard and and be done so by protesting at NBA games here here in the states and in Canada and Toronto people showing up two games wearing shirts that say stand with Hong Kong and in finding finding any way to to kind of get their message out for for white there why they're protesting and and why why why these comments are are hurtful to them into their calls but but aside from that in in terms of kind of throwing around any sort of economic weight paling in comparison to Hong Kong the consumer market you know I'm thinking about the fact that when I moved around China I've seen lots of people playing basketball basketball courts I know that American flags have sometimes been waved at these Hong Kong protests did it what what kind of attitude to people take for this American sport into they feel it is in some way on their side and part of their because even if even if the NBA wasn't as strong as they would like it to be your date they love the sport there are there are courts we can play basketball all over the city home and people are still very invested in basketball itself and and have been pleased with some of what they've seen out of the out of the NBA Shaquille o'neal came out very much supporting them and and they saw
Building the Ideal Lakers Starting 5 with LeBron James at Point Guard
"A micro dose in las vegas covering the lakers 'em what's the reaction to the news yesterday the chris haines a reported that lebron's gonna play point guard lebron normally only has the ball in his hands so to me it wasn't that big of a deal but it seemed guinea huge reaction on you know on social media and on sports website what from where you're sitting what's the reaction been like in vegas i sympathize with you john the because if you watch the brian james playing his whole career he's almost always play point guard in the half court offensively right they since literally since he was a rookie that they've had guards around him at various points like a more of just the shooter but didn't have the ball the whole game talked about a mario chalmers even kyrie's who's really more of a shooting guard than a point guard and you know last year with the lakers lonzo is different in some senses but lonzo wasn't really operating in the half court with the basketball ball so to me that's really nothing different about that we've seen throughout his career and i get the way the report restructured you know did make it seem like that i guess it all depends on what you're gonna do what you're starting lineup but you could still have the bron play quote unquote point guard announcing in have another guard start the game whether that hey i mean the lakers have a lot of options not right is it is it alex caruso is it every proudly is it rondo is it even even casey p if you wanna go big in and let somebody else bring the ball up for i don't know that's what frank vogel gonna spend the summer answer any can figure out but i'm i'm with you ireland i i didn't really think that was much different from what we've seen throughout the bronx career all right so they announce halfway through the same demarcus cousins is joining the lakers a dead already prior to that signed jim vail mcgee an in mike you and i both know the teams now tend to go small and sometimes interim any center on the floor but who do you see do you see those guys this kind of eight option they option b senator you see one of them in trenches of the starter is it yet to be determined what who would you how do you think those minutes breakdown between mcgee and cousins i do do see it as a split and not only that i think that a lot of times the best line up through the lakers will be at anthony davis playing at the five in going small small is you could be with a six eleven shot blocking a young guy like davis at center and then the bron for maybe cruising with the three and if you wanna you wanna stay big there you go danny green in casey p or or caruso so that that to me is what will end up happening in crunch time more often but i do love especially for what they got him that i like be upside with

Other than Kawhi Leonard, Danny green. Baucus only been in the finals car, Larry has been a final for van Vliet has been in the final norm Powell has been in the finals surge a bucket went to the finals. But lost to Miami. I mean what are we talking about here? Where are these folks? Where's the experience? I often use the freight, a phrase not to offend anybody is this reality. When Tom arrives palms, get sweaty backsides. Get tight. This certain people ain't may for these moments. Can you point to anybody on go to state that you feel that way about it ain't Shaun Livingston it ain't entre? Equal dollar it. Ain't Draymond green who dropped thirty two and fifteen in a game seven against against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Brian James. It ain't Steph curry, a Klay Thompson. Who who you got? I got news for you in a too simple. Y'all better pay attention. It's not going to be easy. And I know that, but when we talk about the Toronto Raptors where acting like that team has been here before now there are teams that haven't been able to for Detroit Pistons going up against shack at Kobe, and the Lakers, Chauncey repair, Milton Rasheed. Wallace Bennie Wallace. Tae shop prints. They had been there before, and they ran roughshod over the Lakers, I get it. Do y'all think that the same is going to happen? We're kawai. Let it. That he's going to be able to carry this bunch. And I say you. Yes, on the most circumstances put against a team like the Golden State Warriors. I don't think so. Raptors won both regular season games, average one hundred and twenty two points in those games shot fifty percent from the field and thirty six percent from three point range in those games, which means they shot, better for the field and better from three point range, bene-. Golden State Warriors regular seasons. A different animal game one. Steph curry didn't play Kevin Durant did game to play. So need is an indication of what may transpire throughout these playoffs? I get where everybody's coming from in terms of picking Toronto. Raptors my responses, I hope you can get where I'm coming from by saying, I doubt that they're going to be able to knock off the reigning defending two-time champions. But you never know.

The Cavaliers Just Stunned the Basketball World by Hiring John Beilein
"John B line is not staying in an Arbor reliant is leaving Michigan. And adding to the NBA where he's taking over as the new coach the Cleveland Cavaliers. He's the winningest coach in the history of the Michigan program para final four appearances in his twelve years there twenty thirteen in two thousand eighteen now he takes over a rebuilding project in Cleveland getting a five year deal with the Cavs ESPN analyst docket. I think that if I'm the Cavs. I would much rather have HIV line in some. I don't know guy. That's never really done a whole lot. Now, there's not a lot of guys in college that you can go to the NBA all that kind of stuff the peelings. Here's a great pamper. My son played form is great temperamental players ended development. The the rules of the game aren't going to hurt his style at all because rules are different very different. But I think it's a great gift of the Cavaliers? But as you will know, you guys will get some players if you don't that's a bad roster. And you may get some players if you if you're gonna make this work, no matter who the coaches, Dan with that being said, this is a big summer. A lot of free agency conversation how excited a player's going to be in the NBA to play for a coach while he's had a lot of success. It's been in college. It's interesting. I think that I am gonna change a little bit. A lot of players were always talking about got playing league for me to play with you. I think I think people have seen that's going to differ way. Look, let's be on if money talks if the Cavaliers have more money than somebody else. Go get who they want. But also city talks, and I couldn't personally I mean, I I'm a big fan of Cleveland. I love going there when I was coaching bowling green is just two hours away. But if I'm twenty two years old, I got pocket full of cash twenty five years old. I put cash I don't really Cleveland would be a destination. No matter who the coaches unless I'm LeBron I'm from there. So, you know, the guys that are truly going to make a difference probably gonna go to New York probably gonna go to LA probably gonna go to those cities, regardless. But I'm saying is as much as coaching can make a difference in the NBA, which you can some John. We'll make that difference. He will. He is a very good basketball coach on all sides. Offense defense transition. He is a perk. Perfect to handle all ages, older, younger whatever but come on. You got you gotta have guys in aging. Kevin love a hopefully for him developing Colin sex. And then who knows what you got in the middle between Tristan Thompson, and and the rest, and then you gotta hope you win the lottery you throw throw Zion with those guys. Maybe you got something but mandate like like, I remember when his was going to go the Cavaliers he desperately. All you wanna do is talk. Lebron James and see what the Brian James was thinking LeBron his people wouldn't talk to him. There's no Brown there. And you know, what if you can come in the same time as I'm Lehman, we really good thing for it'd be let in Cleveland is this a risk worth taking when you're a guy who's got an eight twenty nine to four sixty eight college record has been transformative at Michigan and your sixty six for jar. I think it's a absolute win win. I mean, you know, sixty six years old. He's leaving comfort sixty six five years. Let's say I don't know six seven eight million dollar cost of living. Cleveland's not bad. If you're going to do it. You do it. Now. That's it. Right. I mean, you're not gonna be offered this five years from now. So I I like it for both. I really do. I think John made the only choice that he could make it. In fact, he was going to leave. Now, if he wasn't gonna leave if he was married to Michigan. Then you obviously, don't even entertain it. But if you're thinking about it. And you sixty six five year deal. Let's go and John gets a five year deal to leave in and head to Cleveland. And yes. It was a headline about an MBA coaching higher. But are Stephen a Smith says? And you got job be Lana. Head coach for the Michigan. Wolverines is the new head confident Cleveland Cavaliers, no problem there. It's news. Here's my point. What the hell is the segment about it? Who cares? I'm John Williamson with the draft tomorrow that might be different. But since you announced this before we know whether or not the Cleveland Cavaliers going to have the number one overall pick which undoubtedly is going to be I on Winston in the upcoming NBA who gives a damn about the Cleveland Cavaliers the pros not there anymore. Kevin loved Sydney on his way out. Don't talk to that man by keeping them in Cleveland some someplace where he could compete for championship. He's a damn good player who the hell out this day. Give a damn about Cleveland graduates. Bravo. Gravel. It's so touching confined. And. I'm sorry. Cleveland the bras there anymore. No one cares about you right now. No, no, no. Your day is common

"I mean, I guess it's possible, but they get in the playoffs next year. It's a great accomplishment. They've had a deck half decade. But that's a perfect example what I've been talking about like when you played in the league, for example, and you've gone against the Lakers in a finals and you played against Kobe. Bryant score eighty one points. People feel like you have a personal agenda. Nathe get like Magic Johnson, my childhood idol lie Ropley goes, my friend. I went to college with him. I want to see them do will. But the level of delusion with the purple go just baffles me, I was have argument about this season about people overrating what was going to happen with the Los Angeles Lakers. I remember debating so many times at this table. How people felt like they were. Going to over inflate. What was going to happen this year, and I've tried to bring expectations down and then right there. Greeny is a perfect example Western Conference finals, Los Angeles, Lakers. I want to remind people to something they're only about swell players that you can bring to your team. And it's going to be like franchise changing gotten most of those people ain't won't be playing for the Lakers next year of in the Brian James. So I don't see that happening regardless to who the president is next year. So many things jumped out at me in all of that to be honest with you was the first thing he said he said I want to go back to being Magic Johnson again. And that is a fascinating delineation Ervin. Johnson was the president of basketball operations for the Lakers. That's a lot of work that someone like Magic Johnson doesn't need to do. He's an immortal. He's a legend. And he's a beloved figure that guy doesn't need all the rest of this. But it does bring this question. Brian Windhorst this. This episode in his life and his professional career in the narrative of his basketball life. What does it do, you know, he was the coach of the Lakers too? And it went terribly, you know, we last like twenty game. So Mike that he's a phenomenal player gratefully through Greek businessman. There's the basketball not not by the way, a lot of people are great a business who could never throw a pass like Magic Johnson or deliver hook shot. You know, it's two different talents sets the amount of people who who can do both very very narrow by the way just shows you how phenomenal Jerry West was the logo and one of the greatest executives of all time. It's such different set of muscles. So the legacy conversation for somebody who you idolize. What does this chapter looked like in the overall legacy for magic now to you? We're going to be a footnote because he's accomplished so very much and greenie you made the distinction that I've been trying to make forever..

Babo if you were Kevin Durant. Do you think he was talking about you? I wouldn't blame. Kevin Durant for thinking that Bo because the Bron James has a show called the shop. Putting Kevin Durant has the show. Call the borough groom on ESPN, plus LeBron James has a bunch of friends that he trusts heaven Durant has one rich climate who's his guy like you go down the list in terms of how they made their announcements how they carry themselves then both wanting to own teams. I'm not saying it's a sub tweet. But it's some tweet. I mean, you're calling him. Kevin McDowell right. You're basically saying yes, there we go. He's basically saying our buns have knows when you go through like somebody put this up on the internet, and it was all the different things. They'll lebron. Yes. There are direct similarities between the way the Kevin Durant. Try to handle this business in the way that LeBron James is trying to handle his business. There's no question about it. Now this was recorded a while ago as we understand it. It would I wouldn't know is. Just what was the dre of odd. Kevin Durant situation at that time because he knew what this sounded like he had somebody in mind. Yes. But Draymond green. It should be noted. If you're gonna make a defensive him just saying this innocently, he's living the words he saying he's signed with clutch. I've seen Draymond green and maverick Carter.

"Oh my goodness. Clay Travis is back at it. Again. Did you hear this? Outkick the coverage, I think I work harder. At what I do. Brian James dies at basketball like this idea that athletes work hard. I think is laughable in many respects because all they have to do is train for like two hours a day at most. And after that, it is counter pre productive to work for broad is always like most people would be able to do what I disagree. I think most people if they were six foot if they were a horrible wounds body, right except they had John Stockton's dribbling ability. That's basically what LeBron James is right for old school basketball, people, you basically, just synthesize. John Stockton and Carl Malone into the same player. Right. I think most people if they had lebrons athletic gifts. Would be pro athletes now some people would screw it up. Right there at evidently, there's lots of people who are given a lot of gifts to LeBron's credit. He did it screw it up. He didn't find a way to it's a totally blow his athletic talents. But I think what Brian James is in terms of talent, probably the most supremely talented athlete in the history of America. They're just they're like how many people in the history of America have had LeBron James's physical street. Stature everything else about him purely from a physical perspective. There may be no one, right? Just in the same way that Shaquille it. I saw the other night where Shaquille O'Neil said if he were playing today he'd be to get the rest of what clay Travis said odd cast dead.

Pat's are leading at halftime. The first time since the second game with Wisconsin. When I had just a one point lead at the half. And here they have led by as many as a thousand they lead by eleven at halftime. Despite the fact, they only shot thirty nine percent of the first half which still is just about their season average. That's not a good average. But as I try to point out, Brian James, I thought they got a lot of point was sixteen points in the paint. They got some layups that counteract the United jump shots. I'm going to take it to the basket. I thought games law park bench, and they all got points in the paint. I think that really helps their offense. Tonight offense.

You just don't hear about those Ren think of it is like, you know, star athletes basketball stars NBA teams, they pay a lot to try to get those stars get the next Brian James a lot of times, they make mistakes, and they overpay stars. That's an actual part of the process are those mistakes wrong or you want to do them. Of course, what precisely because stars are air a lot of people who don't quite become stars end up overpaid. And I think CEOs are very similar. Yes. Pointed out to me by a person, I met from a high high up person at Intel when we were discussing this recently at a function with Jordan Peterson actually that you know, Intel's whatever their value is every like seventy billion dollars a year, they make whether you pay the CEO twenty million a year or fifty million irrelevant. It's it's trivial. It doesn't matter. If you don't pay him. Somebody else is going to grab him, of course. And you want the return to equity and equity values, go up. So we'll see or returns. So I'm fine with the system. Right. Right. Right. Right. All right. Let's move on here. This is covering some valuable ideas. Here chapter five why eat an ice cream cone when someone in Malawi is starving. That's one version of an age old question in ethics yet. It remains difficult to answer here. I was thinking of Peter singer's famous thought experiment where you know, if you're walking along a path in wearing five hundred dollar boots and a kid falls in the in the pond next to you is drowning would. Did you go in there ruin your five hundred dollar boots to save the kid? Everybody says well, of course, I would. And so he says, okay. Well, there's somebody starving in Africa who could use the five hundred dollars that you are now wearing on that you're about to spend the boot company so don't give it send the money to charity. Overall. I think we do the most traffic or other poor reports of the world by being productive and innovative and buying their products and producing antibiotics and vaccine's and smartphones, but still at the margin individuals with some income, I think should be more charitable. I tried to live that philosophy with this book by donating all the funds to the family and eat the there were several families in Mexico. I have supported for twenty years by sending them substantial amounts of cash. So we should do more at the margin. I'm a big believer in that. If you try to live, a licensed, poverty and give away everything you have we won't be the United States anymore. That would be a big mistake..

"I don't believe that you have to rely on the Brian James the rest of the way like you have to rely on James harden. I don't believe that. That's the case. I think that these what you have to do is you have to. He has to kick started to get everybody else. Going going take care of business against Houston. Play both ends of the floor. Give us your max, whatever that is give us both shutdown horn is still give us twenty eight. Did I wanna see a tongue hanging out at the end of the game? Now, maybe the other guys will look at that. When they go play New Orleans and be able to say, we got to do the same thing. We have to match his intensity we have to do that in. That's one of the reasons that he's even here is because he brings they're sorta intangible to the table the interesting that in the month of December. He did it when they were whatever twenty nine and ten he was doing that. And they were matching he was great. And the Lakers were really good through that stretch. But they'll they also had Lonzo in Lonzo was play. Being at a high level during that stretch. And we don't know when he's coming back and the rest of the team since LeBron has come back that kick start that you're talking about hasn't been there. But he has he given it that kick start a no he's play whale. What has it been only played three? It hasn't been a ten out of ten. I haven't. I'm not worried about him. About them and seeing the ways plan and saying I have two matches intensity. I have to do the same thing. Lonzo might be the most important part of all this all of a sudden. And I can't find any sort of update on his hell. The only thing I see is listen to Lakers lonzo's ball and Lance teams as new songs swerve Novak you. So I'm sitting here going. That's the only thing is that you have a song called swerve Lance teams. That's not really encouraging. But again, we have nice little four-game stretch where I think if we can go three and one we can actually go four no my pain, but we go three and one I think there's room to be optimistic if they come out sluggish and they dropped to those games. It's a wrap. L Z Greg kids, you made Rajput up wrong poll. It's reason AB not army. So now REEs is going to be mad that we didn't call it. The navy will the navy would be mad. They call it. The army.

"This is something that it was a big deal for me because I had to call bra. Telhami? Us for being a young player wanted to everything at his stinger tips. And I wanted everything to be at my threshold. I wanted to be the guy that led us to change. I wanted to be leader. I want to be all that and other responsibilities being the best player in the world. And leading a team is something that's not meant for many people and Brown was one of those guys. I came to Cleveland and tried to really shows will show us what it's like to win a championship. And it was hard for him. And sometimes getting the most out of the group is not easy. Today's easiest thing in the world. And like, I said only fewer Ford or chosen for it. And you know, I feel like the best person to call him because he's been in this situation. He's been there with me where have been the young guys being a twenty two year old kid. Everything everything right now coming off all star year starting and then. Technical presents comes back. Now. I gotta just my game to this guy. And you know, you take it personal. But at the end of the day, he just wants his best, and he has a legacy wants to leave and he has a window. He wants to catcher. So I think with that brought me back to is like all right? How do I get the best out of this of this is the last year, and then helping them realize what it takes? So he picked up the phone. Kirk apologize to the Brian James being such a jerk. Lebron James was there. And when the Brian James tried to get him to understand what it takes to win. I I can I can understand that. 'cause you remember their plan for the next contract really got the rookie contract after caps and everything else that they've got the next contract that they're playing for and sometimes when you're playing basketball, and you can't go out score thirty five forty points every night. You gotta be happy with twenty. And some people it's kinda hard to step back because there you might be affecting their bottom line down the line. So it's difficult now Kirk on Monday, they're going to announce the nominees for the Oscars. Is there a movie that you've seen this past year that you think will be nominated? Now, what about the? Black Panther was that this last year that was last year. I think it's eligible I didn't I didn't care for it. But it got pretty good reviews. Made a boatload of money. I think it was the most successful marvel movie ever. I saw that one. I kind of enjoyed that one. I don't. Great. I haven't seen the Clint Eastwood wise, it's getting great reviews, calm mule. I actually that one. I'm looking forward to see everything that he does. But it's gotten great reviews. I'll be sure to check that out. Now Kirk since you are a member of the Democratic Party. And therefore you are on the left. I want to get your reaction to something that Nicole Wallace. A host of MSNBC's is what she said about racism on the left part of the problem is we we think this does not have a parallel on the left. They're just they're just doesn't there isn't there isn't a strain of racism on the left. She's talking about what Steven what Steven king said about being in favor of white nationalism and white supremacy, and is, you know, Stephen King apologized lost all his committee assignments there was a unanimous resolution except for one descent to condemn him for his comments and she's saying Nicole Wallace ABC Kirk. There isn't a parallel on our side on the left. Yeah. Right. I guess I guess that doesn't include people like Farrakhan. And Al Sharpton and these congresswomen like like eleven Omar in the one Rashida Salah both of whom support. The boycott divest sanction movement that the AD L and Chuck Schumer calls, antisemitism, anti semitic. I guess that doesn't count. Everything is lately. You bring up is that some kind of racial overtone. I don't know how you can sit there and face Farrakhan. Which some of the stuff that he says how about how about the two thousand eight race when Bill Clinton told Ted Kennedy about Obama trying to get Kennedy despite Hillary over Obama he said a few years ago. This guy would have been getting us coffee would have been driving our car. What do you call that? Call it a racist joke by a democrat. We'll call it hard ball. Well, Kirk don't go away. We're gonna play beat Kirk. We come back sports presidents comedy movies governors and crime. I'm Larry elder hall in now in play phone Abro with Larry elder in his brother Kirk at eight eight eight nine seven one sage that's eight eight eight nine seven one seven two four three. A new poll says more Americans approve of President Trump than they.

I'm claiming are prop presence under the tree I'm claiming he did not decorate this tree he hired someone to decorate this tree that person brought in prop presence to pert under the tree. They all the exact same wrapping. They all are stacked on top each other with ribbons around all of them. I'm very suspicious about these prop presents prop presence, soft move or boss. Move soft move all the way through I don't wanna wealth. Shame someone, but you're rich. There should be no fake presence. In that household, even if they are going to kids far more needy than your own who probably want for nothing having faked presence. There is a front to all of this. But really, it's the whole image. I think soft move on getting dressed up. For the holidays. You're supposed to be with family friends loved ones people close to you who should be able to. Appreciate you not dressed to the nines unless he's on his way to the staple center to go sit on the sideline and sit more wine to the game being that dressed up for the holidays the softest move. There is so I'm going to go the other way with this. I think this is a boss move. I think the LeBron James has so much money. There's just like, you know, what I'm not wrapping any presence. I'm not doing any of that. You know, what I'm going to take these patients in front of the tree. So I'm not hire somebody else.

I go to the Bron James is house decorated tree put the tree in their wrap up some fake presence put it underneath because you know, what it takes a lot of time to like that thing to put the ornaments in it to fill it up into by. And to carry it up the stairs. And people talk about how that's like such a great memories you're making now that's two hours of your day. You're never going to get back. Boss move. I cannot wait until I'm rich enough to have proper presents under the tree. When I had my brother take me plays as it was always like we have to get there early. So I can smoke a cigarette before we go inside. I'm paying a little sister. We always talk for cigarettes. Exactly, it's true. Get out. First thing smoke cigarette for lunch after lunch. Another one on the way, home before dinner after dinner now that I'm talking about it. I kind of feeling like I lost about four hours of every day. I didn't realize it was that much. I decided I needed to find alternative. So I started looking in jewel came up. I did both for a while it eventually I just switched over. And it's very quick. I honestly feel like I remember recently you asking me did you wanna smoke three four we go in. I was like no no need to be made the switch July twenty fifteen make this which at jewel dot com. That's J U L dot com. Warning..
