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

"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

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.

Kyrie Irving's Free-Agency Countdown Officially Begins Now

"Is what happens with Kyrie Irving because Kyrie Irving is now in a situation where he's going to become a free agent at the end of the season. And he's head is worse stretch of playoff basketball in his career over the last three games. The guy has literally missed forty three shots in three games. Forty three shots Janta Toco is averaging nearly thirty one points per game in this series. And Kyrie Irving is averaging twenty one and you're saying, well, yeah. Yeah. This is the better player, but Kyrie Irving is supposed to be the alpha male the Celtics team he's supposed to be the star. And he's averaging ten less points per game than the guy on the other side is and after the game when he's asked about he's shooting struggles, he said who cares? That's what kyri ever said. Who cares? We'll tell you. Everybody cares. Right everybody. That's rooting for the Boston Celtics. Everybody on your team cares. Because if you don't perform at a high level they have no opportunity to win the game. He said after he shot eight for twenty two from the field on Friday night that he didn't expect another eight for twenty two performance. He followed that up on Monday with a seven of twenty two performance after game three he called himself, a basketball genius a basketball genius. That just so happened to miss how many shots v. Fifteen in the last game. He played them. But Cairo is telling us all that. He is a basketball genius. And for all the things that have happened this year with Kyrie Irving and the Celtics organization he's called out his teammates multiple times. He said the young guys aren't ready to win a championship yet. And to that I would say kyri you're not exactly ready to championship as the alpha dog yet. You could do it when you're playing side kicked. Lebron James, right? It's like those motorcycles with little sidecars. Kyrie was in the sidecar. You can do it as the guy in the sidecar. But you can't do it as the guy actually driving the motorcycle, right? Yeah. I'm able to prove that you haven't done that yet. So kyri you have not proven. You can win a championship yet as the main guy. Okay. So all the rumors all season long were about New York because kyri Irving originally said that he wants to stay with the Boston Celtics as long as the organization would have him. He did a commercial with his father where he said, I want my jersey retired in the rafters here in Boston. Right. So he said all that stuff. And then when he plays the game at Madison. Square garden. He says asked me about my free agency on July first, he also referred to the New York Knicks as a great organization, he's the first person ever to refer to the Knicks as a great organization, they have one of the worst odors and professional sports in James Dolan. But it appears that Kyrie Irving could be interested in going to the Knicks, and they are the favourite to land Kyrie Irving in free agency. So say, hypothetically, he decides to go if he follows Kevin Durant again, it would be something that is a masculine for Kyrie Irving because their whole reason he wanted out of Cleveland is he wanted his own team. Right. And he basically got the best situation to get his own team. He had to number three picks, Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. He had out Horford. Who's a great player? The guy's a great defender. Great shooter does everything for you. Great passer at the big man position. So you had a great roster around you, and you were unable to take advantage of that as the guy. So maybe Cairo Irving is learning. What were you all are finding? Out is Kyrie Irving just isn't a main guy. And if he does go to New York, and he does go there to play with his good, buddy. Kevin durant? What would that be saying? He would actually be admitting. What we've all been asking about. Kyrie Irving is can you actually carry a team because if you go there to play with Kevin Durant? Sorry kyri. Kevin durant? The best player on the team. That's pretty damn obvious. So you'd be going there to be Kevin Durant sidekick you'd be getting back in that little small seat in the motorcycle alongside Kevin Durant. Just like you were doing with the Brian James. So you'd actually be admitting that you were wrong about yourself. You were wrong that you could carry a team to a high level to an NBA championship caliber level. You'd actually be admitting that but moving forward with this thing say hypothetically that they get Kevin Durant and Kyrie goes to play with his friend because he can't carry his own team. He goes there. Then the question becomes if the Knicks are able to win the draft lottery. Would they be willing to go all in and make another big move? Because what the Knicks could do which is amazing to me to even fathom this. The Knicks have been one of the worst run organizations in sports they've given out bad contract after bad contract. James Dolan has been a mess off the court the issues, which is Oakley. It goes on and on right? There's been so many issues with the New York Knicks. Okay. This team that was so dumb. Carmelo Anthony only wanted to play for the New York Knicks. He was in the final Ervin's contract. And you got it your roster to trade for Carmelo Anthony when he would have signed with you in the off season. Anyway. Okay. This is that same organization this organization could in a couple of months land to stars in Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. Just because they're located in New York and just because they play in Madison Square Garden. It's kind of like the Dallas Cowboys like players want to play for him. Not that it's bringing them any high level of success. But because of the Dallas Cowboys, right? The Knicks are kind of that team like just because it's the Knicks and its New York, and it's Madison Square Garden, apparently people go there and with Kevin Durant is. It's this whole situation of well. I'm never going to get the credit. I properly deserve in Golden State, or at least. I'm never going to get the credit. I think I deserve. So if I go to New York, and if I carry a team there, maybe I will win back the fans that left me saying it was a cowardly moved to go to Golden State. So you have two guys at grumpy, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Then the question becomes if you win this lottery. Are you going after Anthony Davis do because that's the next good legitimately? Do. That would be the best piece that anybody anybody in the league could offer the New Orleans pelicans, the number one pick in the draft, which would mean, essentially the rights design Williamson. Okay. So you could have that if you're the New Orleans pelicans. That's why they made the right move the whole time I've been trying to say this by taking the Lakers deal because now Philadelphia maybe they become involved. They put Ben Simmons in this thing. We know the Celtics could offer Jason Tatum. Jalen brown. If say, hypothetically that they think that Kyrie irvings gonna stay. So there's that package out there. The Lakers packages still. There. There will be mystery teams that come around in this thing and Zion. Williamson out of all the stuff that people could offer. He would be the most attractive piece that anybody could offer. So the Knicks out of pure ineptitude. The Knicks pure incompetence could actually have the best trading piece to pick up a third superstar to pair hypothetically with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. They've been so bad that somehow this could result in them this summer landing Kevin Durant's, kyri Irving. Anthony davis. Because of the fact they've been so bad like Kevin Durant going to New York. It's not like he's going to a winner. Right. That's part of the reason he can leave golden safe for New York is essentially what he's saying is. Yeah, I'm going to place. It hasn't won since Phil Jackson was a player ongoing place. That's desperate for a winter. Like he can actually sell going to New York because it hasn't wanted a high level the franchise he can actually sell that. That's a selling piece for him to go to New York to win fans back, and you know, the Kevin Durant. The second he signs on the dotted line or the second. He releases something whatever like the player's Tribune. Or something the second. He does that. He is a hero in New York. He's a hero in New York. Okay. And it's all because of this organization's incompetence they've been so bad that Kevin ranker justify going there. They were so bad this year that they could have the number one pick in the draft which they could either use on Williamson who's the best prospect since Anthony Davis or they could use. I n Williams to trade four Anthony. Davis depending on what kyri Irving and what? Kevin Durant could hypothetically what could hypothetically want. Now, if I was New Orleans that would be the easiest trait of my life. Okay. So Anthony doesn't wanna player he has an opt-out after this year. He's going to be a free agent next summer. You're telling me that you're gonna give me Zion. Williamson I could get Zion. Williamson who is the best prospect since this guy Davis that we Drake that we drafted years ago. Okay. Yes. Sign me up for that one. But man, I got to tell you this. And I understand that the Knicks. There's not really a reason to hate them because they haven't been good in a while. But would kyri Irving and Kevin Durant pairing be like the most unlikable pairing in the NBA? This would be worse than the Dwayne Wade. Chris Bosh, LeBron James pairing, right or the trio if you will because that was the reason people hated that trio wasn't because Dwayne Wade was dislike -able it wasn't. Because Chris Bosh was dislike it was. Because of the fact of how they did it, right? Lebron did the whole decision thing. And then they had that. Press conference where they came like out of the ground. And the bronze said not one not two not three that championship thing. Right. So that's why that team became dislike -able, but this team in New York would be dislike -able because of the guys. Right. They hate the media. They go after everybody they seem like they feel like they're victims. Right. We've seen with Kevin Durant time after time where he thinks that he's a victim. Same thing with Kyra. Kyrie Irving thinks he's a victim like Cairo serving. Also, there's no accountability. Kyrie Irving the guys not accountable for anything the other night when he misses twenty two shots. He said I wish I took thirty the guys not accountable. He talks about the shooting woes. He says, I'm not worried. There's no accounting. There's no I haven't played well in this series. I have to play better on the reason. We're losing I have to be better on the leader of this. There's none of that. There's no accountability whatsoever. When his team is struggling during the regular season. What does he say the young guys don't know what it takes to win a championship? So there's no accountability with Cairo Irving, everything that happens to Cairo Irving. That goes against his legacy that works in a negative manner. He tries to spin it in a way that it's the media's fault. He blamed the media for the Celtics locker room issues. He said the media tries to rip apart locker rooms kyri. You're the guy that's called out the young guys. You're the guy that got in the coaches face after he called the play for somebody else. You're the guy that yelled at Gordon Hayward on the court for passing Jason Tatum. When he was wide open at the end of the game against the magic this year. When Tatum was trying to win the game. You're the guy that did all that. You're the guy that has had a bad effect on the locker room. You're the guy that said you can't wait around for Jalen Brown. You're the guy that did all this. And he had the DASS ity to blame the media to blame the media for trying to destroy his locker room when he was doing all that stuff internally. He had the gumption to say something along those lines. And also you factor in remember when hiree Irving and Kevin Durant were at the all star game. And there was that video that emerged where it looked like Kyrie was saying to max lots and then Kyrie Irving when in. Hey reporter, I should say here in Boston. The Boston Herald Stevo pet gave him the opportunity. He said, hey, you wanna kinda pour water on that? Because that video had leaked out. There any said that you guys just do this for the likes and clicks. And this guy Steve pet that didn't tweet video didn't even write about the video and was just asking Cairo to comment on it in Cairo Irving said you guys just do this for the likes in clicks. He said, do you think this is what the fans care about this exactly what the fans care about? If you're gonna leave the fans actually really do care about that. That's why Kevin Durant free agency and your free agency. And Anthony Davis is trade destination. Those have been like the hottest topics in the NBA season. So Mike God that team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who had faked Twitter accounts. So he could go after fans fans that were criticizing him for leaving for Golden State two years later, he was still upset about that to the point where he put on Twitter that it's because it was Russ and nobody else around like that's why he left it. He'd. Didn't have enough around him to win a championship. He felt the need to defend himself on Twitter to just the random person that was tweeting at him. He made up a fake burner Twitter account. So that he could attack fans. Okay. Those two guys would be teaming up and possibly they team up with Anthony Davis who used to be likable. But now Anthony Davis says on LeBron show the shop that he couldn't believe after he asked for a trade that the fans booed him. He's like I poured seven eight years in there. And I go out there. And they me Anthony you ask the organization for a trade.

"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.

"So another loss for the Lakers. They lose to the grizzlies yesterday J D one ten to one zero five. I'm I don't know. I feel like I'm almost out on this team. Lebron James calling out his teammates pretty much saying, look, we're not playoff ready. We we need to play with a better sense of urgency. But I don't know I after watching that fourth quarter. Well, first of all they had a seven minute stretch at the end of the third quarter going into the fourth quarter where they didn't have a field goal. Seven minutes stretch. And LeBron missing three throws again late. I don't get the feeling that this is just an everybody else problem. I think it's a LeBron probable as well this team is just not very. Good. Yeah. Well, listen, dear answering March under five hundred this year. And I think that you told me that fact last summer that the Lakers are gonna answer March with a below five hundred record. I would look at you like, you're crazy. You know, I didn't have high berry berry high expectations sustainable below five hundred going into lots full months over the regular season. That's that's pretty surprising. Right. So marches later this week with bronze tonight. Lot rather twenty four points, twelve rebounds, eleven assists. It is a triple double. But along with that we're looking at the five turnovers we're looking at the age of twenty three Smithfield. The late game free throws which has been a consistent problem for him throughout his career. So this is Bryan and about a week ago. He mentioned that he was going to go into playoff mode early. Matt this is gonna activated the motoring lock in. It starts from the top with a team. Like this very clear. It's the Brian James and everybody else underneath and I totally agree with you. This is not something that you can. Equal distribution. I it starts with LeBron James just accept starts with him. And I think so too, and you mentioned lebrons five turnovers the team total had seventeen against the over the weekend. It was the pelicans without Anthony Davis that that that what it one hundred thirty on them. So we said okay defense was the problem over the weekend. So defense was the problem over the weekend against the pelicans with Anthony Davis and offense was the problem gets the Memphis grizzlies team that had lost four games that are coming into this. And they're now twenty four and thirty eight. So if you're a Magic Johnson and you're seeing the last two games transpire. What are you thinking? Like, what are you thinking going into this off season? What's your first move? The off season. I would we mentioned turnovers there. And turnovers right now only hotspot sixteen seventeen a game. That's a lot for them, especially when you have a guy like with broad on their team Rajon Rondo water team. Those are the greatest passers ever played a game. Right. So you have those tuna team, and you're still twenty nine in the NBA turnovers. This past week. I think Magic Johnson it's not so much about what's going on now in the regular season. He wants to see how they do over these next few weeks entering April mentioned do get into the post season. Ben he can kinda judge what needs to happen or white before. They don't make the season. So around that time late March going into April into we'll see how they do that. That's what Magic's going to assess what needs to happen because obviously trade that. I'm Pat weeks ago. Let me tell you something if the Lakers don't make the postseason. I I have all the confidence in the world that Luke Walton be we're trying to get set. Go something that I have been told personally by anybody in the league that's just by complete one hundred percent on I believe that Luke Walton would be dismissed as head coach. If they don't

"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.

"Was the seven hundred seventy th time in the Brian James career his team attempted at least twenty three's in a game. This was the worst percentage that that team had in any of them. Meanwhile, for the nuggets head coach Mike Malone was asked if he thought his team converted any Laker fans who were in the crowd with the nuggets performance tonight. We don't want any converse with us. You're against us. We understand when we play these great. Lebron is arguably the best player ever. And when he comes to town and the Lakers their fans carry, but as long as their fans, go home disappointed in this whole I care about. So the war your fans can commit here.

"What do you think? Did you watch? It did you. I mean, you're in the in the bullpen. Did you did you see it there? There were people around him. He had some I don't think they were like defending him. They really wanted him to score. They were just kinda standing there watching. There's no helps and to make it look like, you know, they tried to make it look like at Bates tried. Yeah. Okay. Hey, got a quick question. Are you a basketball fan? I am. I do. I love watching basketball like playing basketball playing basketball. Yeah. Really? Okay. Where do what level what level? Did you? What who represent? You represent highs middle school you play middle school. No, you know, I actually didn't play in middle school. I played in college and in high school, but not in middle school. Wait a minute you played in high school and college, but you didn't play a middle school. Now. I'm trying to think what I was actually doing a middle school. I think I was a cheerleader either. You're gonna say. Listen, there's a lot of cheerleaders that turned into did. They say you should be. I just didn't like it. I ended up doing that. And I ran track. Okay. Well, it was like I should have been in sports my whole life. Nice. Nice. He played collegiate bass that is so cool. That is so cool. All right. So so I guess you're obviously aware that LeBron James returned back to Cleveland. You mean, the Laker? No, I'm saying I'm saying I'm saying that you know, the Brian James who plays to the Lakers turn return back to. Yes. Yes. Yes. That was interesting. Yeah. It was I thought I thought the fanfare was kinda cool how they read them the king. Because look he did something for that town that I mean, they never experienced before. And if if someone is taking you to a place where you've never been before a U fauria, a climax you. You're not gonna forget that if someone you know gets you to the ultimate. It's awesome. And I think the Cleveland Cavaliers in the way that they treated LeBron James giving him a standing ovation giving him a video tribute at at the end of the first quarter. I think it was phenomenal. And in return, he he gave the Cleveland Cavaliers thirty to thirty two points and a one oh nine one zero five victory against his former teammate. And I guess this is how I can't even say this is how today's NBA is because you can recall back a few years ago. When LeBron James decided to leave Cleveland for Miami. He received a rude reception. When he returned back with the Miami Heat. And that was really spearheaded and led by Mr. Gilbert, Dan, Gilbert, their their owner who who I quote, LeBron James will never ever wanted NBA GM it'd be league. Well, he did he he he he won a couple of times with Miami. And then he came back and gave the city of Cleveland, something that they never ever experienced before that being an NBA championship. And so how could you thought that banned for leaving the second time when he's obviously trying to chase him championships. And it's not gonna happen in Cleveland way. They were constructed they didn't do enough to build around him at cetera et cetera. He ends up in LA, and they wish him the best. And so I think the Cleveland Cavaliers this go round handled it very very classically. And why not man he's the king? He's King James. And when it's all said and done. Ooh, he's going to go out with this. He'll go down as one of the greats. I still can't get myself to say LeBron James is the greatest NBA player to ever ever play. And I guess the problem that I'm having is that the game is changed so much and he's so dominant. I'm talking about from from physicality standpoint. But at the same time is as. Fantastic is a players LeBron James's in his dominating as he is man. I think that Michael Jordan. Still has that even to this day. Still has that that it factor? You know, what I'm saying from the way Michael Jordan carried himself the way he walked the way, he stuck his tongue out the way he the way he pulled on his shorts the way, he shot the basketball the way I mean, you know, what I'm saying that makes sense like LeBron James is just like. Brute force. You know what I'm saying? I'm not saying I'm not saying I'm not saying he's a I'm not saying, he's not smooth nothing like that. I'm just saying man as far as like complete package like as far as a basketball player. It's tough ever to see. MJ being surpassed. And I'm just talking about just as just as a pure basketball player will the win record. And I know it's a big source of controversy amongst you know, amongst basketball fans who was better. But I don't know at the end of the day. Lebron's going to have the numbers just because number one he came right out of high school played MBA number two, Michael Jordan. He took some time off remember memory took a couple years off to pursue his dream of of of baseball. And so those are going to affect the raw numbers as far as the dad is concerned. But one thing LeBron James will never be able to do that Michael Jordan did in that is being perfect in the NBA finals in in winning. It'd be every violently participated in. He was just that dope. And although LeBron has a very impressive string of finals appearances. At the end of the day. Don't have the championships. And like I said it doesn't have to always be measured on championships a one loss record. But it for damn sure helps it definitely helps as far as the way history is written. It also when you consider that when Michael Jordan played during his heyday. It wasn't all this social media buzz social media craze. It wasn't all this streaming all of this. You know what I'm saying? But even to this day, even while Michael Jordan is not play. You don't think cats are on YouTube surfing and watching MJ highlights every opportunity that they get. The man was that potent a player that influential that impactful and always only will be one Michael Jordan. That's just the reality of the situation like it or not. But LeBron James is going to have the numbers because like I said it'll be he would have played longer. He came into the league your. Michael Jordan took a couple of years off in for the most part. Lebron James has been I mean, healthy is entire career.

Golden State Warriors top all teams with an over/under of 62.5 for 2018-19 season

"Can you lavar ball, is going to be headache for Oh really, you're not? Really dealing with to know are you my Lavar lavar will put himself in the forefront and act like. He is going to suit up and be playing for the Lakers now that little bronze in town and LA Lakers are going to be the center. Of the NBA next season will the Brian James on their roster I at some point I could see. The Lakers, making a run for an NBA finals before, the Brian you know contract runs out or he decides to retire. But Golden, State is still they're still sitting at the very, top I mean when you add, boogie cousins on that roster. Too, that's a. Pretty good basketball team a very good. Basketball team yeah no. Question let me clear this up for you you got west gate. Has the over under for, win, total for, the Lakers. At forty eight point five Houston Rockets fifty four point five wins, the gold standard is. The Golden, State Warriors at sixty two point. Five, wins underneath them. Boston. Celtics fifty seven and a half wins look it's really interesting clearly there's a move. For, the? Long term with these LA Lakers but, for the immediate What the roster that we're talking about with these Lakers everybody's tried to do a school state does Golden State is. A team, that spreadshee- out scores of points do a lot of it with the three ball and that's what Houston tried to emulate this year Houston said hey we're going. To build a team and they'd been they've made no secret of it we're gonna do this not under the guise out in the open we're going. To beat Golden State at what state does and they brought in guys to do something like that at. Least they, tried to Chris Paul if healthy eight maybe, Houston in that game seven at home maybe just maybe they beat. The Lakers, Chris Paul was heard the Houston Rockets lost that, game failure to hit the three, point shot Golden State cruises. On, to another. NBA finals victory but here's what it. Comes down to what. Makes it interesting for me with what the Lakers are doing here. The Lakers said, hey you, guys, all want, to try. To do what this team does we're going to try and go, the opposite route where. To try, to find the antidote by grinding. It, out by being. More. Physical by playing a half court game I mean if you. Look at this roster You got LeBron James you. Got Brandon Ingram Lonzo ball's a bigger guard who's going, to be in place of transition game but not three. Point shooter so far have I mentioned, to Colwell pulse, a bigger guard you got, devel- McGhee who's, an incredibly physical rim-protector raise on Rondo. Of. Physical guard doing it with defense coups must Stevenson Josh heart these guys are physical guys. That are grinders that are built win in the, half court I think it's really interesting to see if this can build success this may be the blueprint of, how to be, Golden, State that trying to be Golden State Mike be called state by. Going to differ route yes and his something that may not a lot of people really talked about the guys they brought in they did it on short term contracts. Now they're, going to be locked in yeah You know what if it doesn't work out okay it was. Nice to see, you later. We're going to go ahead and try to put some you know some younger better pieces. Around the LeBron James you think about it they're definitely guys you. Look the guys who are going to be in rotation older all big physical guys guys if, they're going to sit there and not let one. Klay, Thompson comes around off a screen on the baseline you're going to bump into you're going to get. Physical with Kevin Durant we know Steph curry a little late in the booty. So With him a little bit orbit ball go. Adam I in? That aspect so yeah you're. Not. Gonna out suit the Golden State Warriors. Because they get too many perimeter shooters you're gonna have, to get, physical and try to frustrate them and what, the game up a. Little bit do. That old school that old school style of basketball and put in, the half court against the, warriors yeah I mean look LeBron makes everybody around him better Brandon Ingram is going to become infinitely better Lonzo, ball's gonna figure this thing, out he's a talent tickets dad out of. It he's going to be a big player in this. League Kyle Kuzma has already established himself is to steal of the draft a season ago and this is this is a nucleus. Of guys. That are there to. Build a, rat look raison Rondo land Stevenson's Al McGee they are x. factors you don't know personality. Wise what's it going to be but what they are is they're veterans in this league that are savvy. Guys that know how to play the game and you never tout out when you got arguably the greatest? Player. Of all, time and LeBron James on your roster. What they're capable of doing so I told you west. Gate has set this thing. At four eight o'clock, that's, the over under. For win totals for the Los Angeles Lakers this year If, America put your business out there Mike but if you're, gambling man would you take the over for the Lakers to win more than forty eight games. Or did you take the under I will take the over not by much I would take the over on forty just because the Bron Ditz. The best out of players come on he got the best out of JR Smith until Jasper. Decided you tried to dribble out. The clock in game one of the, NBA finals, you look at the makeup? The roster to the Brian has had to play with when he got back to Cleveland with the exception of Kevin. Love and carry urban play with a bunch of stars guys are gonna be all stars but he got the best, of of Kristen Thomson tau. Former George hill mediocre average players in the NBA so he will, get the best land Stevenson I can't wait this land Stevenson LeBron James play together because Yes LeBron loves Lance is competitiveness Lance. May not be the best player in the basketball court but we steps on the court and his mind frame he's better than everybody in the NBA. And you need some of that you need crazy out there you need some. Part of your team, if, you're going to expect to be able to compete against the Golden State Warriors and? Houston Rockets in the Western Conference? Yeah no question to me what's most intriguing. Here's you they're always draw the parallel with Michael Jordan and LeBron James and their careers and as you. Look at it LeBron James very different from Michael Jordan LeBron James had an easy coast to get to the. NBA finals and we got. The NBA finals he had, he had tougher opponents whereas Michael Jordan had a hell of a time getting out of his conference but by the time we got the finals those matchups favourite MJ and that's why you see the perfect, record in an NBA finals but now you've got LeBron, who's going to be an aid conference that is going to be the struggle for him to. Get to the NBA finals I don't think they're built for This year but the question. Does become when talking about. LeBron is his time with the Lakers is how much time do you want to waste this guy embarking on his fifteenth season he's only getting older no matter. How, great he was last year you don't? Want to. Waste any time was LeBron so it'll be a cincy what this team does. This year and most importantly is, this the blueprint of how to knock, up really quick in about ten seconds who do you think the biggest competition is for Golden.

"The players that they're signing what it looks to me like is the brian james is gonna move off the ball and they're going to play with more interchangeable defenders on the perimeter lebron is more the guy that's getting set up in the setup man as opposed to the spread the court offense they comed they're going to have a lot of adjustments they have sort of two teams are really young team and now a veteran team and let's just assume for example that the spurs don't trade leonard anybody that's a pretty good team you saw those teams that were listed on there in my mind i know the lakers are getting money to win the championship but you look at the thunder you look at the jazz you look at the timber wolves even look at the nuggets you look at the trailblazers you look at the pelicans are all teams that from a talent standpoint are right there at the lakers level or maybe a little bit ahead of the lakers at this point no question let's go back to lebrons old home the eastern conference we should probably talk about these for at least a second would maybe not more than a second the kings departure opens the door out east according to charles barkley for this team take a listen the boston celtics are the team to beat in the eastern conference for the next ten years think about it took them to seven games carre and gordon hayward so the castle done anyway brian state there is this all about the boston celtics now so you tell me with everybody wheeling and dealing and you're all over it like what's the celtics plans right now with long term analysis like that maybe charles is one of those folks who is putting the money down on the lakers championship i think if i think the celtics they're actually kind of like the warriors tremendous position of the opportunistic warriors waited and saw an opportunity with boogie cousins the celtics are getting too fantastic players back to all stars in gordon hayward and kyrie irving watch it of the opportunity they still have some some money that they can spend in free agency and there's some guys out there that are not going to get paid that may slip through the market and they're going to sit back on the kawhi leonard talks if the quiet ever becomes available and it gets to be a leveraged position where the spurs lose lose the high ground that have to let them go for maybe less than premium watch for the celtics to swoop in there they're under no pressure to do fast as charles mentioned i agree there in pole position from the talent standpoint so paul george not one of those laker acquisitions in the third and final episode of espn's series paul george my journey the first half pg thirteen explain why okay see over l a the second half he makes it clear that russ was a big part of his alternate decision the only way to go about it is to go to oklahoma and make it official this morning just loyalty is about doing what i think is right i feel this is the best and the perfect opportunity to cement myself and to bring a championship hasn't been brought woke me with open arms i want them to feel that hype that i have towards what i think we can accomplish there i want to be a part of something special and something that i've created in oklahoma aside from the best human beings i've been around his approach to the game is guys who want to be apart jay bless part of this russ is somebody i can win with and vice versa no so i think with this decision that makes me much more comfortable knowing i got a shot and real chance to win one of the best players in the league got a surprise guests come in just in case ready.
