"Taylor Horton Tucker, 8 boards four assists one block, no turnovers, 12 points, 12 points on the night for him, carmela Anthony was zero for 7. He's not getting it. He might be a candidate in another category. Other than that, Wayne Ellington 5 points? One for three? Malik monk one for 5? That's part of the reason why this game was so close by the way. It's a lot of this is, you know, it goes back into three point shooting, but none of the other guys really had a big night. There's not that big standout performance tonight from somebody where you got, you know, 18 points from like monk or 20 or something like that. You didn't really get that big performance. I've got a lot of people saying, Taylor Horton Tucker. I've got a lot of people. I've got some people saying Austin Reeves, Austin Reeves only played what do you play 6 minutes? That was just to kind of get his legs under him a little bit. Some people said Deandre Jordan, we had the big lead when he was on the floor. I thought the Lakers did a pretty good job finding Deandre Jordan in la opportunities, which they haven't been doing great at this season, but in the third quarter, they were better there. But I'm going to go some people said keep Deandre Jordan. Somebody said, Ryan Craig said no one deserves it. I'm gonna go Taylor Horton Tucker. I'm gonna go Taylor Horton Tucker, and I'll go with THT over Deandre Jordan, even though DJ was a plus 8 simply for this reason. The Lakers went with Taylor Horton Tucker to close out the game. Close out. With monk, THT and the big three. That was how the Lakers closed this game. Carmelo Anthony did not have a going again zero for 7 from the field. Legs were pretty heavy. You saw just energy wise wasn't there for him, which, again, understandable. Triple overtime game couple of nights ago, aging player. Perfectly reasonable. For him to be a little bit tired in this one. But THT, 27 minutes, I thought he competed harder than defensive end of the floor, didn't turn the ball over. Shot 40% from the field, that's not great, one for four from three, again, not great. But 8 rebounds, that was pretty important from him for assist one block. And then I thought he didn't do anything to say to Frank Vogel, I can't handle these minutes. I thought he was just fine in the crunch time minutes and having those options there is a good thing. He had some moments where he attacked the basket. He had some bad moments too, but I think THT is at least a candidate to finish games for the Lakers, Deandre Jordan is not. And so I'm going to give THT the nod because I think we saw some solid play out of him in a game where, frankly, that's really what the Lakers needed in order to win this one. Was just somebody who could step in and provide some solid minutes and that's what he did..

"Nba player carmelo anthony. We recently sat down to talk about his new memoir. Were tomorrow's aren't promised. In the book he describes the support he received from many people like neighbors coaches and friends but none more so than his mother. I asked him how she shaped his life. My mom was a strong strong. Strong black women may see was. My mom would have a household of eight nine people. I'm like cousins in her sisters and brothers. In you know my sisters and brothers in friends would just be in the house all day long. Everybody was fed. Everybody was dressed. She had two jobs like it. Was you know this is what she did. And i never never understood it. I would just expecting it. Because that's what i was used to. I'm using my mother working two jobs and you start getting up in the morning. She go to work go to school. I come back from school. She going to other job so that was kind of a relationship like we never. I never really sat and talked to my mother about anything. I just felt like i had it all worked out an all handle but my mother was a rockstar. She was the spine to any in every problem. Any issues. With the family she was at the forefront any issues outside that forefront and believe it or not by. My mom was like the neighborhood. Mom to everybody know everybody would talk about ms.

"No, I think he absolutely can and will contribute to this Lakers team. I think we saw it in Portland. We saw the blueprint for how he's going to contribute. But I think because he's got the big name, he gets a little bit overhyped where people are expecting him to do these big things. Temper those expectations. If he scores in the double digits, I will be very happy, right? If he gives you ten points a game, even if it's just ten on the nose. I'd be pretty happy as long as it's efficiently. I think we have to focus more on just his efficiency. The fact that he can come in, be a scoring threat, don't assume he's going to come in, scoring 20 points per night or doing anything on the defensive end of the floor. Yes, he's got a big name, but he's 37 years old. He has made that transition to becoming a role player. And I think we have to make sure that we see him through that lens. He's a role player now at this point in his career. He's not your go to guy. I think you can give him the ball in crunch time in certain situations. If you can generate an open look, he can knock those down, but he's no longer the guy where you say the offense is in trouble. Here's the ball, you go figure it out. That's not his ideal role anymore. Yeah, it's the same way we talked about Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo in 2019, 2020, where when they came to the Lakers, it was, hey, these are big names. They are not the players they were anymore. They can still provide an impact, and here's the blueprint to do that. But don't expect that they are who they used to be. Because they're not. And that's okay. Guys slip, you know, lose a little lose a step here and there all the time. Carmelo is still going to be a pretty impactful player for the team, but he's not going to be Carmelo Anthony. All right, so I've got a lot of people that are on our chat right now talking about Mark Gasol. So let's dive into the right now, right? Most of the roster is set. However, there have been lingering rumors stemming from a couple of weeks ago, Mark Stein mentioned that Marc Gasol might still leave the Lakers. And then the whole Deandre Jordan thing popped up and now the nets suddenly have Millsap, potentially Aldridge. It seems like the Andre Jordan's on the way out the door. So where do you stand Ron on the Deandre Jordan versus Marc Gasol debate? Because it feels like you're probably not going to have both. I guess I'll let you respond. Do you think they could just keep all of them? Keep white, bringing Jordan and keep cassol?.

"You and I, Ron, we were both talking about how we were a little bit nervous. Like if we said that the nets should be, that that's right now are the betting favorite in Vegas. If we said the nets should be the betting favorite, would that would Lakers nation look upon that when an unkind way? Would they not be too thrilled with that? As it turns out, most of the responses that I got were that we didn't spend enough time talking about Carmelo Anthony and the impact Carmelo Anthony can have coming off the Lakers bench so I said, okay, okay. I was not expecting that response. But let's go ahead and write that wrong. Let's talk a little Carmelo Anthony. What kind of an impact are you expecting from him? I've had some Lakers fans. I think this is a bit overzealous. I've had some suggesting he could be in the starting lineup , but what do you see happening with Melo? Look, Carmelo Anthony, since he signed with Portland two seasons ago, he's kind of been the same guy. And this is a guy that can score. He can get you can get you very quick bucket on the offensive end. He can score from three at a pretty, pretty reasonable percentage he had over 40% this past season. He can score at all three phases. He's not quite as quick as he used to be, but he can still rise up and get those buckets. Defensively, he's providing you less than he ever has, and he never really provided all that much. He was never an all defensive caliber guy. And he slipped on that end too. So defensively, what he's providing, in Portland, when he provided was just being 6 foot 8, 6 foot 9, like he just provided being tall. And so the Lakers could use that because, you know, you can never have enough wing defense in the NBA. So carmella Anthony can certainly provide being tall, but he's not going to provide significant defensive reinforcement, but he will provide someone you can safely put on a basketball court offensively and they can kind of do their own thing and you know they're not going to run your offense into the ground. The way we've had some players on the Lakers in the past few years where if they were on the court by themselves, the offense kind of plummeted. Yeah, then that's just it. Like Carmelo Anthony, he's a guy you can put into the game and he can get you a bucket. Ten years from now. Carmelo Anthony, you can put him in a game and he can get you a bucket shooting doesn't tend to slip quite the way some of the other things do. So Carmelo Anthony, you know he can score. He's going to be doing it ten years from now in the YMCA. He's going to be putting up buckets, right? This is what he does. And I think it's so appropriate that Carmelo Anthony comes to the Lakers finally. After almost a decade of these two, you know, these two entities, right? The Lakers in carmela Anthony, like circling each other. He comes to the Lakers when Kyle Kuzma is on his way out. Because that was always our thing with mella was, well, Kyle Kuzma already kind of has the role that you would want for Carmelo Anthony. That's being your reserve power forward, come in and get you buckets, right? That was the ideal Kyle Kuzma roll in our minds. And now that Kuzma is gone, I think mello can fill that role very, very well. I think he's a guy that can come in that can score with the second unit. You look at the bench unit for the Lakers. Let's say Rajon Rondo was in there. Great, right?.
LeBron James Reacts to Amassing Zero Votes for NBA's Best Player
"So we see this tweet from NBA Central 10 Scouts and executives voted on the best players heading into the 2021 2022 season. Yanez five votes, Kevin Durant five votes and LeBron James zero votes, and I guess this poll was done. Via ESPN, and LeBron sees it. And LeBron, of course, has to respond to it. Now let me remind you This was a few weeks back. Where the trade did go down with Russell Westbrook. And then the Lakers also acquired Carmelo Anthony LeBron James took to Twitter and you may not remember this tweet because he posted and then quickly deleted it and LeBron James said. Keep talking about my squad. Our age is the way he plays. He stays injured. We're past our time in this league, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Do me one favor, please. And I mean, please keep that same narrative energy. When it begins. That's all I ask. Thank you. I think he meant negative energy, but he he wrote narrative energy. Or maybe they're supposed to be a comma or period somewhere in that place. But you get the point. LeBron James, and I don't have a problem with him using this as motivation, right? Sometimes you use things as motivation. And you go. Yeah, that's not authentic. Like. Does anyone seriously believe that the Lakers don't have a shot to get to the NBA Finals this year? Especially with how I just laid it out. The Lakers just won a championship two years ago. Right? So now I'm going to say after one season later. Headed into them. It would be two seasons later. Oh, yeah. LeBron and Anthony Davis. No shot to win a championship like give me a break. And today LeBron sees this poll done by ESPN and he goes. Thank you. As if I didn't need more fuel if I didn't need more gas to fuel me. And then hashtag. Wash King.

"That michael does what is the most egregious so you go to a nice steak house with michael thing number one is. He will wear sweats so everybody else's dressed in a college shirt and slacks. Yes nice shoes. Michael sweats and tennis shoes. All right now that's number. One number two some steakhouses especially the nice ones were. We'll be highly offended if you put ketchup on steak. Yes michael knows this so he brings a small bottle of ketchup with him to the restaurant. Oh god all right. And none of the three dimensional walks in. He will have a red solo cup filled to the top with wine. So he does not have to pay the exorbitant. Wind braces will have a full glass of red nice wine normally but a red solo cup so he walks in and sweats with a red solo cup and a bottle of ketchup in his pocket. Which one of those things is the. Most i think it's the solo cup man. I think they have that thing called. Fee were even if you bring your own bottle of wine and you open it. You've gotta he gets around the corks thing. Yeah i think that's the most egregious that's just that has some that cheap. Some places will tell him sir. We can't have you drinking red solo cup with that. You know wine glass for you. And he'll say sure. Is that the way people react. People are okay. Restaurant people are okay with it. Sure he's michael thompson. He's an international celebrity. I find the steak on The catcher keshavan steak thing not necessarily the biggest deal in the world because people use a one steak sauce all the time so catcher. Isn't that big. I think it's a waste of a perfectly good steak. I'll tell you it's a waste of good. Steak is going to fancy restaurant like deer. John's that i went to with The boss people and the boss people are really irritating and then the food doesn't even taste good so annoyed by the company that it ruined the food. It ruined the food absolutely. Did you know what i did this weekend. Which dwight howard recommended was. We ordered hamburgers from a place called the window on road. That's house and they are fantastic to white. Today was his favorite spot. I think dwight is dead on the money. I don't know if i will ever get hamburgers from anywhere else again. They are so frigging good. Strongly strong ups to dwight howard for that shoutout completely unsolicited. It's called the window american beauty. It's on rose avenue in in venice and you should definitely check that out because those burgers there are killing it. On any of the lakers summer league game last night. No no okay. So they have to players. Who reminded me a lot of alex caruso and not just because these guys are white. One of these guys is mac mc lung. Have you seen this dude play. No have not really good shooter super aggressive so with the game on the line. They're down to and mac. Mcclellan hits a couple of free throws and then they're down four thousand tied the game with the mid range jumper makes it seventy one. The other guy is a guy named austin reeves who played oklahoma. Okay who caught a a a mid. He basically had a rebound put back. Won the game for the lakers. They ended up winning by one. I wonder if that's why the lakers were willing to let caruso go. Because they had these dudes in the pipeline. You should those guys on way. Deals reeves's for sure. I don't know if mc lung is or not a look it up but so you think we could actually see these guys you'll see the nba level leaves. You'll see res for sure you'll see reeves in the preseason. Oh and the preseason sure. And i think you'll see clung to. I think he played really well too. So i mean he didn't make his shots early was like for nine but then when the game was on the line he had a bunch of big plays. That might be one of the reasons that might take the sting out of losing a little bit as you guys really look. They can play. Yeah yeah well. People are gonna miss caruso sure you know crusoes. Full kiro legend status crew show. I mean you're getting all that stuff. I'm happy that he got a big deal. I'm happy that he he cashed in and was able to. I'm disappointed that he's not with the lakers. But i do understand it. And by the way is dennis schreuder still out there. I think so. I thought my god ended up in boston. But i'm not sure that guy turned down. Eighty four million dollars and now he's i mean is he going to get i. Don't get any money. yeah. Yeah but i mean. It probably isn't going to be eighty four million. Oh it's definitely not going to be eighty four million. He blew that he completely blew that. That's going to keep you up at night. That's that's fire the agent time isn't it. Maybe he could go back to germany. I don't know what the money's owns that team in germany. Did you know that one. That's not really read. That's kind of robbing peter to pay. Paul could hire himself to play for his german team if he wanted to. But yeah no. No sign of him in the lakers. Still technically technically could do a sign and trade. It's unlikely at this point right. But they could conceivably do a sign and trade. I don't think they'd bring them back under any circumstances. I just don't think he's a laker. I just. I don't think got what it means to be a laker. So i don't. I don't want him back. I don't think he's coming back. But could you flip them for something. Maybe you flip something. Yeah like you said. It's unlikely you'd meet a team that had no cap space that'd be willing to give you assets. Most teams can figure out a way to get him in without even dealing with the lakers. Because he's an unrestricted free agent. But maybe by the way let me a couple of these guys are still out there. Avery bradley i know they liked him when he was here. One ring sure possible isaiah. Thomas not really what they need although he had eighty one points in a charity game over the weekend paul millsap..
LeBron James Deletes Fiery Tweet Calling out Lakers Haters
"Let's get to LeBron James. So LeBron James has tweeted. All right. Well, then he took it back. So we all know that the Lakers partially out of desperation, They've had to retool the back end of the roster because they've got no money. They've got no financial flexibility with the three guys making the money that they are with LeBron a DNA Russell Westbrook in the mix, so they recently added Carmelo, who is 37 Trevor, reasons 36 Dwight Howard is 35 Wayne Ellington, who's a young buck. He's 33 get baseboards. 32 Westbrook is 32 as well, but he's got the big money. So LeBron wrote, just tweeted this out, and he said Keep talking about my squad. Our personal ages. The way he plays, he stays injured. We're past our time in the league, etcetera, etcetera. Do me one favor, please. And I mean, please. He's going caps and exclamations. LeBron must be serious. Keep that same narrative energy caps when it begins, exclamation. That's all I ask Hashtag. Thank you. Then he deleted it. Yeah, because we will you deleting it for that? We will keep it that way. When it begins. We are fair on this show. We will. But why are they the leading? They play Great. Then go say we're wrong.

"carmelo" Discussed on The Jump
"Story and look. This is the kind of flyer the lakers were going to have to take. They did not have any capri left to go. They're going to have to get guys. They're chasing rings on the minimum and carmelo to his credit. He wants to do ice. Oh and shoot it portland. He bought into a role as a spot up. Shooter shot the three well. That's the role. He's going to have to play for the lakers. But with all of these guys whether it's ellington as more reza carmelo with the exception of res. I think the big question is going to be when push comes to shove when you're in the conference finals when you're in the second round the place whatever it is. Can you stay on the floor defensively. Do the lakers who have made their bones all the sexy stuff. Whatever they have made their bones on defense have they hurt their defense. Too much in this in this. All of this rosser building. I think that's they. They are going to be a really interesting team. Well let me ask you a question which also reporting maleek monk to the lakers. Where do you think now as you look at the whole roster and where where it sort of sets or great flyer for the lakers. I haven't seen that. I looked at my phone kind of nice bounceback season last year. He could really shoot. He can play make as a secondary playmaker that is. That's that when they lost caruso they needed more guys in their prime and maliki manca stolen is prime. And i think that's a that's a great move by rapport guys so great flyer parkway where you see what i love the move of getting mark. I think he's a hell of a addition. But you see. Zach is still trying to find holes and talking about defensive prowess in the defensive identity. They still have anthony davis they still have the white. How would they still have lebron. James look when you have a veteran group like is. This group is built for a seven game series because you have a veteran group. That's gonna bulk down. They know what it takes. You have a lot of championship spears. Look stop trying to find holes and find things. That's wrong with the lakers. Instead of just saying listen. I know they have an old scoring but they have a lot of talent on this team. They have a lot of death and they have fixed these holes joe trying to talk about depth. I don't know talent. yes and look now in one place. I just want to put this out there. Lebron james anthony davis russell westbrook carmelo anthony. The list goes on to show on. Talk about showtime. I think is going to be pretty incredible right across the street here. I'm personally happy. We have another orioles fan here in. La our friend. Kyle goon from the orange. County register is very excited. I know about that as well. So the newsgroup so Yeah i think that Overall this is a win all the way. We are going to be talking a lot. More about the lakers. We're gonna be talking about team. Usa able to push back spain.

"Year. it's not like he's in decline or anything and that was without klay thompson that was with the team. That was kind of a makeshift team. Trying to find its way. They obviously have made so far choice to stay younger and draft younger players. And that's sort of been controversial but look this would be really good next year. And this this is what you do for an all time icon not just set an all time leader and culture center for that locker room all the vibes. All everything stems from him and look. There's no question that he was just chime back. And god knows. I just wanna know zach zach could give us then. We'll go when three points La fitness is act. You be dignified this. I hope he just fell off your chair. I just want to get a little credit. My shoulders doing excellent excellent job here. And there's no question of course steph curry of composes himself. There's no question steph. Curry deserves the only interesting wrinkle. I think in this and this is good bring on the warriors is that lebron kind of ushered in with those one in one's with cleveland and we saw kevin durant then do it and golden state and then we've other people pick it up throughout the league this idea of players using short or contracts to hold management accountable players who realized they were so good. Didn't need the quote security of a four year deal because they knew in a year or two they could get another big deal so why not have shorter deals to hold management management accountable producer. Steve is eric saying stall so we gotta work on that but the idea that that you hold management accountable and i think that him signing this deal early remember youngest into kupu did not sign that supermax until the first week of training camp basically right. He was already back in training camp and that was on purpose. The purpose was. Let's see what you do this summer. The fact that steph curry has signed this extension right at the beginning of when he could sign this extension. That to me is just as much of a message as the holding people accountable guys of saying i am holding management accountable. And i think they're doing good work. I think it is a specific vote of confidence in the front office and we should note that as well. I think the reason that producer. Steve has asked me to stall a little bit is that we have breaking news going on adrian. We're now ski reporting carmelo. Anthony is on his way back to sorry. He's on his way to back to being reunited.
Miami Heat Land Kyle Lowry, Retain Duncan Robinson on 5-Year, $90 Million Deal
"Let's start with the miami heat who made some noise yesterday for sure. Free agency officially kicking off. They added a couple of former nba champs to their roster and kyle lowry and the recently minted. Pj tucker they also resigned sharpshooter dunkin robinson on our close to an agreement with jimmy butler on a four year. Max
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point.

But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple.

The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

Well he didn't just blame it on. Carmelo anthony lack of leadership. He blamed it on everyone but himself. He blamed it on the new york media. He blamed carmelo anthony. He blamed derek fisher. Although there fisher. Does you know we love fisher on here. But he does deserve that one but he blamed on like five different people anyone but him he said. I should have coached the team but physically couldn't do it from a health perspective. I mean dog. You know what. I mean like the greatest coach of all time just because you weren't a good gm. We're not all good at everything. So i would say big deal only because he just like let it out on everybody but himself i feel like i got a glimpse into who he is as a coach to like. I always wondered if he fully appreciated how blessed he was to coach the men that he coached and to me. I'm not saying this is definitive but for me when you show an inability to take responsibilities for your thoughts right that suggest you have an ability to take too much credit for your successes correct. And so when. I am that quote i was like. I knew you didn't think that you were lucky to get jordan. Utah jazz looking to have you

What Knicks trade for Lonzo Ball could look like
"To the pelicans new orleans lonzo ball love him or leave him leave him. I think a lot of return for lonzo ball. And i i gotta tell you. I'm really impressed with all the talk. We've been having about lamelo ball lonzo. Ball's men baldwin him shooting the ball well from the three point line. He's not really playing. His position stands got him sort of three indeed settings threes. Chris i on your. I can pick and roll like okay. Zion's carmelo no lonzo ball is the karl malone and john stockton karl malone what the hell down world but it works. It works the upside down any can defend. Yeah leave him. Yeah that's what i think. He fits with the knicks. Because we talked about you talk about random about how well you know how hard air coats and commitment to the defense side of all you have to get a certain type of store star in new york. He's a guy that won't be afraid of coming in and do a little hard working in committing to both sides of the ball quickly which you know. Obviously well his dad prophesized already.

Detroit Pistons will sit Blake Griffin while team considers trade, buyout
"Watson routes give espn dot com has reported that not only. Is andre drummond. Kind of getting shut down for this whole trade talk discussion but also his former detroit. Pistons teammate blake griffin. It sounds like we'll be held out of the lineup. Until they can sort of figure out what his next move is is there a trade available for blake griffin or does this have to be a very extensive buyout situation where you know blazing to give some money out to get his freedom to go play for a good team. How do you resolve. This blake griffin situation. And why are they going to shut him down. I mean he's been very rough. So far this season i think a lot of people have noticed that he hasn't had a single dunk all year. Which just seems incomprehensible for the player. He was earlier in his career. He's basically a three point line. Two three point line Shooter at this point if you wanna put it that way in terms of his impact Is there a way out for detroit. Here or what are they doing man the blake griffin situation is is pretty rough Yeah he just hasn't had a very good season not moving. While he's only thirty one which is like hard to believe. Honestly i you just look at them and you think that. He's like in his late thirties. Ve how long he's been in our like our collective conscience and how great he used to be You would like to think that he could have an impact a positive impact on a championship contender. I don't know if that's possible anymore. Especially when he's not hitting the three ball and he's not hitting the three ball even though he takes a bunch of them so i don't know man like it will be. It'll be really interesting if they do. Waive him even though like. I don't have the limit. I'm trying to find the contract numbers. I know he's still oh quite a bit of money. So that's gonna be really interested this year. It's thirty six point five next year. He's got a player option for thirty eight point nine. Oh so you're not gonna get anything close to that this summer. So the buyouts to have to kind of reflect that if they did kind of pursue that direction mean maybe. They're just trying to hope that they can construct a trade to dump him onto someone else's someone else eats that money next year. I don't know how you really get out of that. I mean it could be a situation where they've just decided look man like your body's not they're just take some time and hope that you can kind of get into a better spot but mean it does kind of look unsalvageable for him at this point you know and i hate to say that because there were times for derrick rose where looked unsalvageable to and he's come back to make himself like a valuable role player in certain situation You know is there. A role for a blake griffin lake career bench renaissance where he follows the carmelo anthony model right and he's only play in like sixteen minutes a game and he gives you good sixteen eighteen minutes and that's it Could that be like a second chapter for him. I don't know. But i think this idea of him as fulltime starter. Impact guy or major contributor is is basically done.

I thought a year in exile and unfair you. Urine exile would've done him good mentally in that regard. If you've got this chance this right here concerns me enormously. That he still thinks it's year eleven and an eight year eleven seventeen. Yeah I tend to agree with you and so you mentioned is a charity case when they signed him or was it something else it. It wasn't a charity case. Because they need him to come in there help them obviously. They're struggling but it also wasn't. Okay we got a big three with Mellow Damian. Lillard J. mccollum it's somewhere in between and Mellow L. O.. Has the look in the mirror and say hold on. I've played four games. I'm shooting thirty. Nine percent from the field where one in three arena four games. I've played to the losses are Cleveland and New Orleans. Too Bad teams and this win. Twenty five and eight. I put up was against the Bulls. So don't start talking like you're the old mellow that's what's kept him out. I've been saying it ever since he's been league nick. He is still better better than I've said. Sixty five percent of the players in the league. If you just think better is most guys can't go out there and put up that type of now. He can still do that. He can still score. There's no doubt but teams have not wanting because Willie accept that role of being a fifteen point score score off the bitch or knowing. You're not the old mellow and that's why Alan Iverson had the early exit and that is why vows Carter later. He knows exactly where he is who he is and is not trying to still be. You know what I mean. The highest flyer best score in basketball like he wants was Carmelo. Anthony might not even have been in this position. If that was the approach that he would have accepted when he was with Houston. Okay my role to come off the bench. I don't have to start. I can contribute in any way possible. Any seemed to push back more and more of the stop before Houston maybe because of the way the style they play but okay see you still say that thousand percents and this is what I think kills him and and I think this is tough. Is that much like Brady. And brees have made all of us really overestimate. How long quarterbacks COMPLA- you've got this classic guys the Oh three Oh four oh five draft class right so the Mela was oh three along with Wade Bosh? Lebron Oh four is dwight o five live is Chris Paul. Those are the best six guys from those draft classes. Let's look at where they are. Chris Paul is a toxic contract who is still a capable player but he's to draft classes younger than Carmelo Anthony. Dwight Howard one draft class younger than Melo same ages mellow. I'm sorry two years younger than Melo. Actually because he came straight out of high school will he is in the role player bench score part of his career. Do you wait is retired. Chris Bosh is retired. The problem is that whole crew. Who is except for Dwight? They're all lebrons guys and they all one point. Thought I'm either as good as him or it's damn close and Lebron still best player in the league and they're looking around saying it perverts. What they think is realistic node? There's a as far as a year. Seventeen what should you be. Well I don't know when I was seventeen eighteen years old.

"Guest. Jay Glaser Curt Menefee. Jimmy Johnson should be a fun morning. Lots to talk about so please join US sir. All right onto the NBA. Now when the Portland Trailblazers signed Carmelo anthony many wonder if these seventeen year vet had anything left in the tank or if this was just a charity charity case to give mellow one last Hurrah that after one twenty five point performance smell a wants to make one thing. Clear saying quote Zany Dan. Farewell Tour for my love for the game. Don't stop. I don't know where this farewell tour thing came from. I've never talked about a farewell tour. I know what I can do what I believe in myself. And in a farewell tour comes it calms. Ain't no retiring in my mind. I believe in what I have left. Nick what was your action to mellow had to say man I full disclosure. I love Carmelo Anthony I love him not only Syracuse. I I feel I tend to root for the way Jensen's root for backup quarterbacks. I root for guys that I think are being root for the underdog and I root for guys who I think are treated on who the narrative ease misconstrued in the national media. I have no reason to root for Dwight Howard but I seem to be always always rooting for Dwight Howard. Even prior to the Lakers. Because I feel like the folks in positions like this have totally missed cannot even misconstrued misrepresented. What what he accomplished in who he was? I feel the same way about mellow that because he wasn't able to get the knicks over the hump. And because he wasn't Lebron Ron James and he wasn't even Dwayne Wade people act like you know what I mean in reality. He actually hurt teams. He was on. You know the advanced analytics tell you that his inefficient inefficient stop it. And so I want Carmelo Anthony to have a graceful exit to the League because I think he deserves it. I think a player of his caliber caliber deserves it. One of the best scores of this era deserves it. No doubt but the thing that has been the stumbling block for mellow ever since he left. New York is being honest with himself and maybe people around him being honest with him about nope even for great players. What this phase of your career looks like? If you are fortunate enough to have this phase of your career most guys is never make it to your seventeen great players. Never make it to your seventeen and so for mellow after one. Great game to start talking like like I'm about to show you guys. I'm still mellow that to me. is going to lead to bad outcomes if Dwight had out on the court yes on the court because I and Dwight had surprisingly effective started the season with the Lakers and he was like see.

"Boston was not owned there. He had makes Brooklyn Miami. This. He didn't have Boston nowhere on there. So what we've see that teams are unwilling to accommodate especially like, oh, you don't wanna be us. If you don't want to be here with me. Why would our comedy you insane you where you would want to go? So that's I think that's that's really the big hold up skip. Because at the end of the day. The teams are going to do wasn't the best interest of them. The last guy that I remember getting to go where he wanted to go at the trade deadline was Carmelo Anthony Miller says I'm not going to resign. I want to go to the Knicks the Knicks gave up garnering MAs gov. Raymond failed Wilson Chandler a number one the first round draft picking in three million cash. Yeah. That's what they gave up for Carmelo mellow is going to be in the hall of fame, and he's phenomenal Millo. Can't hold a camera. That gas skew and New Orleans hold on. Why would I do that before having an opportunity to hear what Boston got balls and got some young still? They got Jason Taylor now. Jalen Brown is taking a step back coming up to bit. He's not the Jalen Brown's get. We saw the playoffs last year. But Boston has four draft number one pigs. They got the kings protected number one. They got the grizzlies protective one through eight they got the clippers and they got their own. So if I can give you a packet because I think anything he is going to start with your best young talent Jason Tatum Boston. That's their best young talent start when hill. Now have coups Mer surpass Brandon Ingram as the Lakers. Best young talent because any deals going to start with coups more Ingram, and then it's probably going to go from there. Kuma Ingram lo and behold skipping told you guy coming on zoo box zoo going to be in this deal now, and I wanna see Lugo. Like big. Looking good laughing. I gave it toward him all day. Still good. But everybody likes. You're not the only garden ally skill. This. And this is why don't see it happening because I think the New Orleans is going to try to get. What's what's best because you never gonna win? You're not gonna win this. Now. I think okay, see in Indiana. I think it's a push right now big the older depots and all star Paul George the MVP contention all star. So bonus has been unbelievable. So I think both teams happy with what they got. But when you talk about a generational talent. You talk about a guy that's twenty nine thirteen and four we're two blocks and Tuesday, stay overnight. You ain't getting for that. But I don't see it happening. Skip about his trade deadline. Just don't see it happens. So help me out again who's the agent for Anthony Davis. Oh. Already Richie who works for the worker. No one. CEO clutch libra worked for him the CEO of clutch. Lebron showed every agency. Sorry. So you don't think the biggest powerbrokers in the NBA are LeBron James and Rich Paul those two together that's power exerted, they can flex it. They can force things to happen. They can make threats that they can vow. We don't make. Well, how do we we don't? We don't bully people. We don't not so unbecoming Beth beneath us we request nicely. Relax.

Carmelo Anthony is finally on the move being traded from Houston, this Kogyo, the trade is just money dumped mellow won't actually play for the bulls. But he could still end up with his good friend, LeBron James with a report servicing that the Lakers are still interested in finding a way to acquire. The former all star who likes this. They. Do they Carmelo Anthony? It didn't work out with Chris Paul his best friend there. Why would it work out with the Lakers? And LeBron James Carmelo makes no sense. It makes a ton of sense, whatever you wanna say about Carmelo Anthony. And a lot of people wanna point to his last two years of production declined to really just say that's who he is in totality a lot of movement. A lot of moving parts Carmelo Anthony. I still think he's a very good player in this league and very good for the Lakers situation for two reasons one he is a veteran and as young core. And LeBron James at his age is looking for guys who are ready right now in two if you look at him from the three point line, which is today's game Carmelo Anthony on this team would rank top three interns shooting in his decline like the decline years at thirty five thirty six percent shoot right now. We'll be right back. Hind the best three points. You don't Lakers, which is by percentage. Anybody fact trivia last divas? What so Carmelo Anthony because of his versatility, I'm not going to use all the decline and just say we isn't totality. I think he can really help. This team's Bessie. In the veteran mindset.

Well, I if you would like to enter log on to xtrasports thirteen hundred dot com, we're picking that winner this week. So. Time is running out. Boston vs Pasadena. That's what it is. There you go. Or or if you really well, but Boston. Nobody knows where Foxborough come on. Where's that in relation to Southie? That's the only Boston neighborhood. I know. So yesterday, we only have forty five minutes, and it was like football football football. And that was the most important thing. But there was also something that came out yesterday that I wanted to talk about Nasr, Carmelo Anthony, I ate your mortgage announce ski reported yesterday, and it turned into a whole mess as everything with Carmelo Anthony does age rewards announce reported that. Carmelo Anthony had been traded to the Chicago Bulls from the Houston, Rockets fact, not. You know, that's not the issue here. Is it official yet? Now, that's the problem because in order to accommodate the rockets had to release somebody which is weird because they're not the ones taking on Carmel is a really bizarre situation but release somebody. Yeah. And then nobody was at the league office yesterday because there's Martin Luther King junior day. Heaves replay, exactly. So no one was there to receive the trade call so. So it's a big mess in the rockets were down numbers. And I think they ended up losing last night. Although that wasn't because of any of this. I mean, they could. Blaming it all they want. But that's true. They could waited right. They shouldn't own the post. They should call. Like, we got trade agreement can somebody please call the league office and see if anybody's there. Yeah. Instead of this should not only guy get out of here, and you're gone, and you're gonna I mean should the league say, hey, listen. Male were out these days. Our company they send up of the the corporate holidays right in say here. Here's the days off, right? We're getting out Wednesday at two pm for following Monday. The NBA do the same thing in the NFL the major league baseball season. They do the same thing. Like that is just exactly that's what I'm saying. The owners should get an Email the general manager should get an Email. Hey, we're out of the offices day. So if you have any transactions it'll have to wait, even even do automatic reply in your Email, right? Do something. Yeah. Anyway. Wards announced. He also reported yesterday that Carmelo Anthony would not stay with the Chicago Bulls for very long, right? He didn't Atlanta. Right, right. Yeah. It was Chicago's using this for financial gain. Yeah. Maybe to gain an asset to like a second round pick or whatever. They have the cap space to take him on. So why not let's just take him on? And then we'll flip him or wave him or do something whatever we decide to do with the next. The Lakers, obviously have been a long reported landing spot. But the Lakers reportedly don't want to. Cut a player that has a guaranteed contract because they don't want to take on Carmelo's money, and then also have to pay somebody to not play for the team. Right. So it's all it's a whole thing. But. It's. I've said this. I'm a huge fan of Carmelo Anthony. I really am. I think the nuggets organization nuggets fans are forever indebted to him for white. He was able to do for that franchise that had been garbage for so long. Other than that one blip. Were they upset the Sonics? They were garbage franchise. Carmelo comes in. He saves it they go the play offs for every year for a decade and a half one and done. You have to under like, we're not you have to understand. This is the nuggets were not gar nobody except that. There's ads in the Broncos. They judge on this now gets Rockies. Go on this one in Duns are yes after wild that got. It got frustrating mostly sits right in the middle. They made it all the way the Western Conference finals true. The look and that's on his legacy. Right. But his nuggets legacy is the top line is he turned around the franchise. So I want better for him. I'm I'm done with trying to have him come back to Denver. I look the nuggets have problems with the amount of players. They already have on the road. I'm cool. Like, I'm over that. But I wanted to end up better because I think he deserves it. He's a terrific player and terrific players hall of fame players shouldn't go out like Carmelo's going out where he's looked at as a failure in Oklahoma City, a failure in Houston used as a bargaining chip in in Atlanta. And now Chicago the guy deserves to go somewhere and put up some points and be able to have a little success either individual or team success at the end of his career. And that's what we're hoping was going to be the case with the rockets, and it didn't turn out that way. But I think the. Carmelo Anthony saga. I think is a valuable lesson for young kids and young basketball players to grass is not always greener. That is all that is something, you know, Carmelo Anthony had one good year New York. He had all of these years. Yes. Two wheels point it got a little stale being bounced in the first round all the time. But at least you were getting there in a more difficult conference. You had more talent around you. So the grass isn't always greener. But at the, but the more important thing is in the nuggets have done this last few years, they paid upwards of million or two million dollars to guys like Mike Miller in Richard Jefferson to do absolutely nothing on the court. Those guys when they had contracts with the nuggets were not on the team to hit threes or get rebounds. They were getting paid to be good teammates to be leaders to take guys under their wing, and they did that and they got paid way past their expiration date in terms of their talent on the floor because there are good dudes. And they just were good teammates. Good influences. The other lesson that is learned with Carmelo Anthony, no matter how this story ends up. Is that if you're a good teammate NBA teams, even as individualistic as the sport is teams will pay you to be a good influence on their younger players. And if you are a me first guy, if you're I'm I'm gonna get mine, if you're not willing to take guys under your wing, which Carmelo isn't Dan this happens Carmelo Anthony can score twenty points a game for somebody. He absolutely. Can he still has gas in the tank, but because he's not willing to take a decrease in minutes or come off the bench or mentor? Young players. Nobody thinks he's worth it. And it's a shame. But it's also kind of a self inflicted thing here with Carmelo Anthony. So we'll see where he ends up. I think he ends up playing a basketball game in the NBA this season. I don't think he's completely done. I think he goes somewhere Brooklyn Orlando. I watched a little bit of Orlando Atlanta game Carmelo could score twenty-five on either one of those teams. They're terrible. So I think he steps on an NBA court again this season, but it's not going to be in Chicago. And it's probably not going to be in Denver..
"carmelo" Discussed on The Tony Kornheiser Show
"Okay. Hopes and dreams. That's good. This is news. What have we got Nigel? Tony. We have big news headline. We have found come Anthony. Well, he's temporarily he's been shipped off to Chicago who I believe saying we're gonna wave him in a matter of days or hours. So then his then I guess the expected landing spot for him is maybe the Lakers, potentially, I suppose. Yeah. So here's here's my comments on Carmelo Anthony. To trade him to Chicago to get Chicago to take him. Houston had to give Chicago money nine hundred grand. They had to give them money. I don't care if it's a buck and a half, they said, not we please take him. They said, no what if we give you money you please take now. We'll when we found this out last night. It was like right at the end of the show. We didn't put it into the show because Mike said he'll never play fishy cargo. So so at that point we're going to back away. I'm sure we will talk about it today. Carmelo Anthony was a big star. Sure was a big star. And and his stuff with the Knicks which is. You know, it turned out very badly. At the end the stuff of Phil Jackson. Everybody had to take a side with Carmelo Anthony. Carmelo Anthony won a national championship at Syracuse is a big star in the league. He never perhaps a cheap with the teams that he was on the heights, and maybe he should have money. He was an undeniable big star in a great player. This is a fall. I don't know without injury. Yeah. Because I would point Isaiah Thomas. Sure tremendous for but without injury. I'm not sure I've ever seen a fall like this. No, it's hard to put to compare it to anything in recent years anyway, unwanted, yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's the game has passed him by Tony. I mean, it's just what he does his skill set. Just does not translate an any appreciable way to game that's being played now because he's not a three point shooter, very good three point shooter. And he's not very. A good defender. He is a high volume low post, mainly if you give them enough touches he'll get to the foul line. So you can help you. But but that's not how anybody plays anymore. So it just it really is a case where the game. Swore in the tar pit with his get out. No, there's no the nation is not the game. I mean, it's just it just and it's not his fault. I'm not asking him to be able to be great at what he does what he does. But you know, you have to after dime and everybody laughs brook Lopez's shooting threes. But he said, well, they gotta shoot threes. Now this leaked to survive and so less than two years ago. Yeah. That teams thought like Oklahoma City. The addition of this particular fellow we'll make us a championship team. Now, he can't get on the court. I thirty three thirty four. You know? I mean, it's just a matter of not being just can't play through a guy. That's that inefficient. And just just it's hard to do. Unbelievable. It's act to me. It's it is. It's no one believes that what he does well has diminished to the point that he is unwanted in the league. They just think I don't need this guy got he's hurts. My dairy similar to the way Iverson went out and the unwillingness to accept a role coming off the bench and. The debate for years in New York. What is the way going to do? It was just unbelievable donors. Here's no. Only on a bad team, basically and even a bad team. What what are they want for what he's being paid this year when he three million dollars by Houston, plus the nine hundred. So he's take them for five hundred thousand I'll take him. House. The little house. Unbelievable. Unbelievable. Let's get to Liz Clark because. Yes, Austrailia what you tell us. What you were doing early this morning.
