Bills release former starting G Spain

"Quentin, Spain no longer on this bill's roster, and I know there's a lot of bills fans probably scratching their heads saying, What the heck's going on here? Just sign this guy in the offseason, re signed him to a three year $15 million deal and he very quickly after a about a game and a half. Lost his starting spot at left guard. They brought Brian Winters in it right guard flipped Cody Ford over the left guard, and they've been going that way ever since, until least Cody Ford got hurt. And now with Cody Ford injured and weak, too weak. I think a lot of people were thinking. Okay, Well, this is the time for Quentin, Spain to step back into the starting lineup. Since that was a position, he man. For all 16 games last season. It went the complete opposite direction. He was outright released. Now. He did miss the last two games with what was described as foot soreness. He was a late scratch before the Titans game, and then he was inactive for this past week's game and was listed as questionable on the injury report. This is also a $4.5 million cap. It Which isn't gigantic, but the guys in the first year of a three year deal, um I think we have to wonder. This is probably twofold. Steve, number one. I don't think the bills at the beginning of the season thought they could acquire regard the caliber of Brian Winters who I, who they clearly believe is an upgrade because he moved into the starting lineup rather quickly after signing After camp had already started late. Yeah, and then on top of that, The timetable for John Feliciano's return seems to be imminent because the way it works is when you go on I r. Once you start practicing it kicks in a 21 day window. In which to practice to get back up to speed. And in that 21 day window. The team has to make a decision as to whether to active put put you on the active roster or leave you on injured reserve.

"Two instead of having Five weekdays. I have 10 many weekdays because I go home. Take a two hour nap usually get up at like noon my time and I drink coffee and have breakfast, I think do another day. Very weird way to live. I don't mind it, but it's very strange Morning show life for you. So you have a three hour earlier morning than me. But at the same where we're up watching the same games late into the night like last night after the Dodger game, I'm sitting there like I'm not ready for bed. That was insane. My heart is racing pacing around in the living room like I can't just go to sleep now. So Yeah, you got an app. You know, it did just It's It's on a lot of days. Hard for me to do. But you gotta know how much cooling off time do you need? I mean, I know, And it's usually Yeah, some like that when I was when I was covering the MBA, and I'm glad don't travel as much both the heating just in general, I would get out of them. I would leave the Miami Heat game. Sometimes it's like it was like a televised nationally televised game. There went overtime at midnight or 12 30. And the guys and hung out like Brian Winters was one of those dudes, Joe Good, and they run a little more slowly than I did. I wrote to quit. I will just like fly through it. We would meet for dinner some some Tuesday night at 3 30 in the morning, but you could do in Miami like I would go to bed at 6 A.m. and then wake up at 8 30 to go shoot around, then come back and same thing. The nap life. I'll be so just and that's made to spending three hours in the overnight here before you know it holds up for this show. It's just like you get in that rhythm of you know the games and then you then you get to work. And once you get in that rhythm suddenly it's you know, 56 am, you're still riding off the adrenaline and urine that rhythm. It's weird. It's weird. Sort of correct your clock back from that. Yeah, it's fun. But getting back to normal from that schedules is not fun kids or what's changing. For me? It's hard to be a dad and to be going to sleep at 6 A.m., right when your when your kids are getting up. You know what, though? If there's ever a time for Ah, little bit of weirdest and schedule and I guess it's I guess it's 2020 idea. I have a breaking his idea. Let's do by herself. What.

"Brian Winters already as a home he assigned with the Buffalo Bills, so surprised that he's that these guys stay in the division. I know you always happens so common so common to see that Number two. This isn't a huge deal. But I noticed that I was reading over the weekend that the NFL had come out with that 100 less. The best 100 players in the NFL the land for 2019 right? Right. Well, I guess for 2020 really Well, you know what I mean. But I mean, you know, going where they haven't played 2020 years, right right going into 2020 obviously, a lot based on last year, so I was looking at the list I use. You don't care that much about it, but I was curious going in When I saw the link, I said, how many Jets and giants are on this list? That was my thought, Because what Adam's out there can't be many jets left. I think there are no jets left. Jamal Adams was 27th which is a very solid ranking, especially for a safety Joe. When you know safety's no matter don't matter. Said. He was 27. There was one other local player on the list. It's not a huge surprise, but one of the guy And that was say, Kwame Barclay. Okay, right, which is fine. You have a great year last year had some injuries. But that's that's fine. Top 100 is fine. He was 31st. Outside of that, not one jet, not one giant, but I did notice. You know, Dale back home was there which you know, I'm skeptical about now, after what's happened the last couple of years and Demario Davis was there well, Marios Davis has become like an old world line back, so I know I know since he left the Jets, so it's just another reminder of the state of New York football. It's not that big of a deal, Double one man logic malls does he want? I think Lamar was number one from that nut was overly LeMay put Lamar Obama Holmes. I think he was your funny, I.

"Is not just as I said earlier, one of the absolute best MBA writers in the country and a great guy. He also played an important role in my life. You West Coasters will understand this he is the person I hung out with. I was with who took me for the first time, my life in and out Burger. Memories. You think his car got locked in a parking lot? This gentleman and Brian Winters tonight, And that's when I experienced the first of 700 double doubles, which is not sure of my body. Well, say I'm a moment from the athletic. Hello, sir. How are you, Bill? Good. Good afternoon. Good morning. I'm doing great. I'm glad your arteries are holding up, buddy. I don't want to be responsible for that. You know me? I blame you. But I also I also, thank you. Sam. We've got a little breaking news in the last hour. I know we don't know a lot. But Zion Williamson has left the bubble. Any indication beyond the statement from the pelicans about what might be going on here. No, obviously it's fresh. I mean, not from my standpoint, you know, but But now, of course it's the the timeline game. In terms of, you know, we know the rules here and if somebody leaves You talking about? I don't have it in front of me. I believe a 10 day return quarantine on so you know, now you're pushing into pelican scrimmages and, Ah, you know, I think he would be back in time for the start of The end of the regular season. But, you know, we'll see. First and foremost, you know thoughts with his family. For whatever they're going through something compelled into two decided it was worth leaving the campus to go be with his family. And in these times, you know Sadly, we can probably guess what's going on here. So beyond that, for MBA business, it's obviously not good. Let's say this is something where he needs to spend more time away than anticipated. No Zion Williamson was the biggest ticket item. In these Orlando playoffs. You know what I mean? And the league would love nothing more than to see you know him in prime time making people tune in. And so that's a big blow on the business front. Potentially Sam Amick here on the program on the gym room show Bill Rotter filling in Sam on Twitter. Sam underscore a Mick. Subscribe to the athletic like I do the contents. Incredible, including, Of course, Sam's work on the MBA. Sam, I was gonna ask you this question before the Zion News. And now that the Zion News affects it, I guess it's just more uncertainties that that shaped the N B A. In a way that certainly hasn't been true in in my adult lifetime. When you look at the Western Conference and those teams that have a reasonable chance at trying to get that nine seed and earned the right, presumably to play Memphis for a gotta win to to get in to that eight spots situation. Hoodie alike and what is your level of confidence that will have an eight versus nine game? Um, you know, it's tough to tell on whether or not we're gonna have. I mean, I would think so, because you only got you have to get within 3.5 games and you know, and you know that's about where they are right now and Portland. All of a sudden they were the popular picked to be a sweeper team to begin with, because they got use of Nurkic back in that college. Two big guys that you know mainstream fans by not have heard of, but they're really important. What the Trailblazers do. And you got Jamie Littler. You got CJ McCollum And so now, all of a sudden, not only do the Blazers get guys back there bigtime for them, but the kings, who are another threat and that group lose their in Fox to an ankle injury. They're going to re evaluate him in 7 to 10 days. I mean, that one seems like It could be a longer injury on then he got design Williamson factor. So Portland's stock keeps rising. And I think the fun part potentially for the fans and and then folks watching is just it. That is a team that obviously got to the conference finals last year, and that has a level of confidence. And I mean, Damian Lillard's already said, You know, on record that he thinks they could beat the Lakers, and I don't necessarily agree with them. But I think you know that sort of drama, you know, could make the first round. Really interesting. If they get in Sam Mae Mae. Do you think that Portland team could take the Lakers to six? In an open around serious, Maybe because I mean, First of all, I just have no clue how they're looking right now. From a chemistry standpoint, but nerdish I'm a believer in he just he. He was a monster last year before he got hurt. In the year prior rather and you know, Yes. I've seen them play in a very high level. The thing with the Lakers is, you know, Avery Bradley decides to opt out Raisin Rondo as the thumb injury. They just the hits keep coming for the Lakers yesterday. I was on there. Zoom call. Where coach Frank Vogel was asked about Marquis Forest, another kind of key addition that was supposed to be in their rotation. And it seems pretty clear now that the market is not in Orlando and, you know, I think they'll get him back. It does sound like you know, that's the plan, but they've just had More setbacks than most teams and the Dwight Howard factor where Dwight ends up deciding to play. But you know, just a lot of uncertainty with with their rotation, So you know those types of vulnerabilities. Ifyou're Damian Lillard, and that's what you feast off of, you know, you know he's going to be coming for you. So I think it could be a decent Sam Amick here on the Jim Rome Show, Sam, you're based on the West Coast. She spent a lot of time around that that King's organization and they were fun to watch is here. Your reference. The deer in Fox injury and we'll see where that goes. But looking down the line. What's your confidence level in the urn? Fox actually get into a level of superstardom of perennial All Star and that Kings team being a playoff team over the next few years. To be determined. You know the major major question, mark..

This ain't Jerry Jones okay the Brian. James needs to be the face of the franchise he needs to be the voice is publicly.

Jerry Jones go higher Lincoln Riley. No He's not because Jerry Jones gotta be the power player. That's Lebron James needs to be. He's going to be just fine understanding that when the game is there's Frank Vogel. There's Lebron Dana Brown. Would you think about that last call and that's exactly because when you go to him and what you think about that last call he's once again going to basically go behind the back of the coach and it will create chaos.

"ESPN insider, Brian winters, mostly executives sage believe that he's got one of two decisions one he could run it back into Ronco, if he comes back, they could bring back six top eight players depending on what a couple of other free agents do? And he can look to sign a one year contract with a player option to try to win another championship there. If he's happy can stay put without compromising his long-term situation, but if he wants to change in a more long-term environment leagues believe the Los Angeles Clippers are there. So it's a showdown. Between raptors and clippers a lot of people believe that with the Los Angeles Lakers, not at all, and that picture right now. All right. It is not often that you hear of an athlete opting out of a thirty million dollar option. Brian, which immediately makes me think that that's what this is about the Cairo is what this is about in Boston Al Horford declines that. So what does this say to you about the Celtics mindset when it comes to try to convince kyri to stay? Yes. Just actually helps the Celtics, because the hope here is that they can negotiate a new long-term contract without Horford and reduce that thirty million dollar number down to a lower number give him more years. And then have some more flexibility to add to their team. They are moving forward with the reality, the Cairo you're having might not be back. They actually could do some things in the free agent market. If Al Horford, reduces contract, I don't think you should take this as a bad sign off your Celtics. Okay. Good news for Boston. Let's go back out west Los Angeles. Because LeBron Anthony Davis. They both got their wish. But this team still has a lot of work to do to fill out that roster. Brian, what are the biggest hurt? Still in front of them. Really good news to superstar stage. The bad news is, they don't have much else. And I keep hearing people talk about their twenty two million dollars in caps days, but it's not twenty two million. It's actually closer to eighteen million because they're going to have to account for the cap, hold of Reggie Bullock, which is about four million dollars in sage they have no guards on their roster. I think there's a decent chance. They may have to keep him. In addition, they cannot treat anymore future. First round picks all of their first picks are encumbered under the Ted Stepien role because of the deal that they may with New Orleans. So this is really going to come down to difficult threading the needle to hit these role players. They really don't have the way to build this team other than through free agency and just to just eighteen million really, if they keep Reggie bullet man, the other story this week coming out of Houston, which includes the lack of harmony between James harden, C P three and whether or not we might see somebody on the move from the rockets really around Spain and company, it's hard to place, the blame because this is this is the locker room. Matching nations that we don't know all the details of we know what's been leaked. Right. We know that Chris Paul is maybe trying to coach up harden, and harden saying dude, you can't even get your own man. I'm not letting dream. You're right, right. But at the same time, Chris Paul's ability to actually physically do the things that he knows are right, does not preclude him from being able to tell somebody else. What's right. Right. He's a very smart player. But like you said he's an acquired taste, and I don't know that when you have a situation like you did last season where you forced James harden to play. Even more ice. Oh, ball than ever to take over games in ways we have never seen before an NBA history. Then when you reinsert those injured players and try get back to where you were before, especially with a big name in an ego like Chris Paul that you're ever going to be able to fully reconcile and be back to the place. You're before all that went down. Absolutely. And, and it all falls under the umbrella of unfortunate unfortunate, because Houston was all in, and even. Promoted is such that they're gonna beat Golden State at their own game. They're going to rely on that three point shot. And Chris Paul is going to be the new piece that pushes them over the threshold, and they were there. They were on the cusp of that until injury kept Chris Paul from game seven that we don't know how it would have played out. We simply do not know what that injury kept this team from cheating. And then when he went down again in Houston needed identify what their game plan an attack would be, and that became a dominant historic usage numbers for a guy in horn just to get them through. And then with Chris Paul return what he's bought onto what he came into what he believed the philosophy would be to potentially win championships down. There h town was no longer these flip the script on him. Chris Paul came back a star in his own. Right. A hall of Famer in this league a guy who needs to be the, the conductor. The facilitator the not in his hands and we'll see how. How the lack of harmony affects the summer in Houston, sacrifice bunting?.

"Right. All about timing. And there may not be a better time to release LeBron James book, then this summer as to what has just transpired with the LA Lakers. Magic Johnson's abrupt resignation, and what will be happening this summer for free agency with the LA Lakers. No reporter knows NBA superstar. The bronze James a historic both on and off the court better than SPN's Brian Windhorst knowing bring you a story of the bronze business life from his first shoe deal. With Nike new now upcoming Space Jam to the movie, Brian wind horse his new book, LeBron incorporated, the making of a billion dollar athletes coming grants publishing on April. The ninth two thousand nineteen hit bookstores just did on April the ninth grade, and he joins us. Brian winters does on the progressive insurance. Hotline Brian map parole. Tell are you. Who Matt thank you for having me. Thank you for coming on. So when did you this book goes from the bronze early life, obviously is I deal with Nike shoe deal all the way into the future with Space Jam too. But how long did you take to write this book? Well, I guess you could have been working on for a decade because I've been collecting the information, but I started working on it. Maybe spring of two thousand spring or fall two thousand deal right in the fall two thousand seventeen so, you know, book process a little bit longer. And you know, one of the first things LeBron group said to me is why you write a book. Now, why won't you write it in ten years when we have a little bit more done because we're still early in our business process. And I was like, well, you're fifteen years into your business process number one number two and ten years if it's all right? Another one this is how it works. Right. Here's part one. Here's part two following up because how much does the Los Angeles market factor in to the overall business plan for the Brown James as a business as a potential billion dollar athlete. How much does Los Angeles feed into that narrative? Ignificant? I mean, you know, he doesn't wanna frame it is that because I think he thinks if he would ever say that it will be used against him. He wasn't you know, putting winning? I. But if he only wanted to win he would either, you know, Philadelphia are signing Houston, or maybe even stayed in Cleveland state in the Eastern Conference where you know, the path was simpler, although the east of gotten much stronger this year would have been much harder for him to win. You know, when he came back to Cleveland the second time that wasn't a whole basketball decision. He came back to him because he wanted to you know, for family reasons for reputation ravens into right? You know, a wrong. What have you? I mean, just go someplace just to play for basketball doesn't make him a bad person. But I would see him trying to protect yourself from criticism. He would. But of course, he is heavily invested in the business. He wants to be heavily invested in business for years into the future. It is the capital of the entertainment business. Yes, he can still operate without living there, but he certainly. Benefits from doing so, and he also believe in the Lakers Lakers can get players whether that's right or wrong. We'll have to find out in violent host the new book LeBron Inc. Making a billion athlete. Joining us here on pushing the odds one thing that I'm curious about with him in maverick Carter's show show, the shop on HBO one how well has that done through the Brian James is in two if it's done well, could you envision something more permanent? Lebron does more things like roundtable conversation. Talking about the hot topics of the day in the future. White. He he's a great Booker. He can get you know, Antonio Brown on what he's in the news and stuff like that people want the episode before he had Anthony Davis. On trade book. Now, guys. I mean, we can't book those people ESPN we have the best Booker can get the best reach, you know. So I mean, you have the problem is is that it's very hard to make the show really super-duper profitable. When it's on four times a year. Right. You know? So that's why he's got special projects. A lot of them are one off, you know, like you. He's working on a really big documentary for HBO coming out. I think it's coming out in the fall late summer on the Hamad. I'll leave it, you know, he and his production people to work for a couple of years, but you know, making documentaries isn't gonna make you a billionaire. You know, we'll make you a billionaire is if you make Space Jam to and it becomes an international hit, and it makes hundred billion dollars at the box office. You know, and then, you know, Warner Brothers does the things that how we go three picture deal and you make three more. So he's got his fingers in a lot of different ties in the media business. He has Granddad rations. They also doesn't mind doing shorter. You know, smaller projects I think that's probably good Brian knowing LeBron the way that you do over the years. What do you think his first reaction was when he found out? The Magic Johnson was resigning that he was not consulted. Nobody was. But he in particular was not told before the media was told that Magic Johnson was walking away. Tell you why. Was stunned in part of the reason why is that because he was on the last day the next day, which was Wednesday. He'd already had permission to go to New York to see Dwayne Wade last game result. He wasn't gonna have his exit interview fan. With magic and rob Pelinka on on Saturday. You know in away and at that interview magic was talking about plans for the summer. He was getting valuations of Luke Walton as the coach I mean like he was not from what I am told. He was not indicating that there was any chance he was not going to be the president of team a few days. And so the Brian was like, okay, we'll beginning evaluation process or maybe some changes etcetera. Didn't know it was coming and not only that he couldn't feel coming. And so it was very surprising. And the thing about it is I I really don't think that this was LeBron based decision. I mean, certainly LeBron factors into everything. But magic saying goodbye here. I really don't fake the Brown with huge reason. I don't think the failures excessive. That was a huge reason. I think the one thing that you can hold onto from his tenure was at least he was able to get the Lakers. Lebron? I'm the first big step in trying to bring them back to relevant. So it was definitely strange and unexpected from from everybody Brian this report, or at least there's a rumor circulating in Twitter's Twitter. So who knows what the heck tapping on Twitter. But people are saying the ESPN's gonna have a pretty indepth story coming out on the dysfunction of the LA Lakers. Just hypothetically speaking if that were to come out if there were if there was something that came out about the rob Pelinka relationship with Magic Johnson in how problematic it was. Would you be surprised? This one is really easy for me to answer. I don't know the that question because you know, we have folks that are company that work on projects. Sometimes they're investigative projects. Sometimes they're just big feature. And they don't tell the writer for the reason they want to sort of be independent. So of course, you know, I'm aware of the rumors that I'm aware of what magic said about it. But I'm very happy that I don't know what it is. And I'll be happy to read it if it comes out or not I I'm glad to be book fleeing on this one. Let me put it this way. Do you think there were internal problems with the Lakers pretty indepth internal problems with the Lakers this past season. I think that the Lakers basketball department is is a mess. And I think they made terrible decisions and subways arrogant decisions they also had some bad luck. But as far as anything that was sinister or you know, whatever I didn't know, I just think that it was people who were not executing their jobs. Very well. I don't I don't know of anything else. And that's that's how I've always analyzed it. Brian. Let me get you here on this for folks who are going to pick up the book in read LeBron Inc to making a billion dollar athlete. What do you hope they come away with off after reading the book? So when LeBron was a teenager, he dedicated so much of his life to maximizing his gifts, he knew he was given something special with this body and his skills had he was determined. Absolutely. The most out of that is done that it's whole career taking care of his body. When he got into his early twenties. He realized that there was a lot of opportunities for him to make money and a lot more than just making money for playing on the basketball court and with the same sort of Piff many he decided I am going to maximize because he didn't say he was being fairly compensated. Even now that you over thirty million a year and will be making over forty million. He doesn't think he's being fairly compensated for what he gives to the game. So he has been on a mission to squeeze and extract value and not only that but to become more of a partner become more of an owner and everything he's involved in an eventually he hoping odor in the NBA two. Well, Brian congrats on the book. Thank you for the time. They really appreciate it. Thanks day weekend. That is Brian wind horse of ESPN author.

"I'm glad it's unique because we're going to start in the association Kevin love. It's very excited and obviously humbled after he has resigned with the Cavs on a long term extension sources telling you SPN four years. One hundred twenty million dollars topping out his overall deal at five years. One hundred forty, five million. What was your reaction when you saw. All, and there was a photo of him with the construction workers who are working on the arena in the background, just thank you, Cleveland renovations to Quicken Loans loans, reenter down a few. A few mentions of of an old friend old guys around, but look. So when I saw this news from, whoa, and Brian winters look down on my phone. I, I truly went what the hell are the Cavs doing. I cannot believe in the midst of this rebuild that they have invested that kind of money into Kevin love. Kevin love is a really, really good player. He's never going to get the credit. He deserves forgetting Cleveland, at least helping them get to the level. They've been at the last few years playing with LeBron winning that title of years ago. Kevin love is just not for where they are. The player that I, I think I would have invested in long-term on top of in fact, he's got a ton of injury concerns. But aside from. That what I started thinking about was this is the issue that the NBA has now and fan bases and owners and people all throughout the league are discussing all the time. Do you owe it to fans into your team and your city to try to put a competitive product on the floor, even though you know, full well, this team, whatever they are without LeBron we're gonna find out. I'm Kevin love is the face again, but this team isn't good enough to win at least win at a high level. So I guess my question is an and I agree with you, I, I'm shot that they're doing this because I think there's obviously to roads for the Cavs. It's everybody knows. We're not the same team. So why not bring it down just straight to the studs, hit the rebuilt. Right. And the fans will know you did your best to keep LeBron LeBron left again, we got, we got a strip it down and start over or what I think they're doing, which could be in part ego on the part of Dan Gilbert, saying the right on the part of Dan Gilbert saying, oh, no, Nola LeBron. Not in charge of this team. He doesn't decide where our futures go. He leaves them, we're still going to compete. I'm going to put my money and Kevin love. I'm going to. So I obviously agreed that the first way is the way to go. The only way to win in the NBA is if you are not a destination, like the Lakers is to get it down and rebuild, but if you're not a destination, if you are Cleveland, it feels like what the bulls have outdo of late, which is we can't get free agents. No one will choose to come here. So if we do have a five time all star that the fans love and that they feel is loyal. It's better than not investing in at least the one big talent that we have and then crossing our fingers, get everything through trades or draft, and there's this, you bring up the bolster that the bulls of going through this as well. You mentioned we'll do fans love this guy. I've never even gotten the sense being in Cleveland as much. I have the last few years that fans in Cleveland, our love with Kevin love. Well, he's the guy who got kicked a lot and got blamed a lot. If he's the only one left and he's choosing to stay. And as wind said today on the jump, he could've made more money in two thousand fourteen. And instead he took the security signed a five-year deal. He could make more next summer. He could decide to go somewhere else next summer. And instead he says, no, I want to be in Cleveland for five more years. Is that just about security or is that loyalty? Is that him saying, I want this to be my team. I think you can spin it as loyalty to me in seeing Kevin love, go through these contracts for years. I think he wants to security and I understand when you have a guy that is played at the level that he has and has had the injuries that he's had over the years..

"To play because he's apparently not made of human beings stuff he's made of alien stuff we're never get seriously injured or taken out but brian winters was keeping an eye on that ankle and here's the exchange you had with lebron you said about talking about it on sports center the post game locker room lebron james caught me looking at him as he was walking to the shower and he said you're looking to see if i'm limping on his ankle aren't you and i said yeah he goes i wouldn't show you if i was anyway lebron is really beat up right now though he he is a little bit limited by this ankle he's still dealing with a leg injury that he suffered against the celtics and of course that i injury that he suffered in game one but more than anything lebron knows he's not going to be a hundred percent again this season and he's probably gonna have a hard time coming back from three oh against these golden state warriors i'm feeling team right yeah a little weakness there for once and i think that's the sort of human side of lebron that we don't really talk about much because you mentioned he's not made a human stuff we just assume no matter how hurt he is that he's gonna come out and be lebron and there is a point last night where there was some shots that were missed that are not typical for lebron right and i think what happened in the beginning of that game particularly when we saw the self pass off the glass and the dunk there's a spot where you look at moments like that and you think okay this is superman lebron that's going to be able to do whatever he wants and when you see that in beginnings of games and then you see the way it plays forward towards the end of games it it's obvious that he's running out of gas right like in the fourth quarter you don't get the same lebron that you get in the first quarter but that's sort of human it makes sense to me oh absolutely i mean of course of course and i think also it matters the situation in game two he wasn't even on the court it was save him as much as you can this is the first year lebron's played all eighty two games couple of games.
