ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis HR 3
We're. What do you feel? I feel a World Series championship for. Baseball. Nineteen eighty-one. Let me remind you who was down to the World Series. Dodgers who won the championship in nineteen eighty one. The dodgers. Let me tell you something LA, we got this. We come into the his house. We have. I hope so I hope so maybe to regain Jay do they need to bring you in. They need to do it. And the pre game speech is going to be. We got a guy throwing one hundred get a couple of runs get, ma'am. Even more than a couple few view runs and the rest of this can take care of itself because we got our guy that kid that looks like he's eleven years old. He throws one hundred and he's going to go out there and do his thing against them tonight. Because that's what has to happen. The other to try to beat the Red Sox. Three two is going to be really hard to you're going to have to beat this team. Eight two five six two six two four. You're gonna have to score some runs and the dodgers have not been able to do it. The Red Sox have gotten the big hit. Whether it's Nunez is home run whether JD Martinez, a single the dodgers have and hopefully the Drennan in the crowd bueller on the mound. The fact that their backs are against the wall all of these things hopefully, add up to a couple of these things go on the dodgers way. Because none of them have so far been in both the game. Yeah. This when you look at the postseason run that the. The. Red Sox had the one game you can identify wish. They were kept in. Check by great pitcher was the loss to Houston game. One game. One Justin Verlander held him. And check to run scored that was it the other laws they had was more about the batches being code than a guy just blowing them away you can build on that. You know, it's difficult to beat them with johnke, and and dial is different. It's difficult which talent too much talent. They haven't been shut out the entire postseason. I doubt if we can shut them out. But if you can hold them in check the winner Justin Verlinden any game one and their series. Whereas he gave them to earn runs. But he got the run support. And he didn't let anything terrible happened derail in terms of getting guys on scoring position. He kept them all and check walkability as you said has the same sort of stuff. He can keep them in check. You're not going to shut him out. You're not gonna hold onto one run only. But if he walks out and he's kept in the two, maybe. Three runs. I feel pretty good yet. They need one of those dude performances. I forget whether I said this to you or to Keyshawn when morning before the show started. And there were showing the highlights it was after game. One of the Red Sox in the Astros were early interest just out there just doing it up. I mean, it was here. It comes. You've got you got you got nothing. You're not you don't have it. I have it. You don't you're gonna lose tonight. Right. The dodgers need one of those. The dodgers have been in these games. But they haven't gotten that. They haven't gotten that. It's just not your night. But it's not happening. I'm on doesn't matter. If you're on my my on bigger than your on here. It comes deal with it. They haven't gotten it. They need to get it because this getting into a game a different sort of game with them when you're the less talented of the two teams or the less hot or however, you want to characterize it or maybe both in this case. Your your hands fall? You're absolutely correct. Especially the attitude of you know, you're not today. Yeah. You know when Pedro buyers goes out there. I feel like he's like not today. Bright where goes out there. I feel like it's not today. I wanna feel like that about starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw. It was like I don't think it's your day. I hope that I'm on today. We'll see. Affect guys. Let's see what happens. Right. And then, you know. Bam Dame to re was going. Oh, definitely your day. You guys got me. I'm outta here. Game three walkability to come in and says, the bleeding stops right here. Here's Dave Roberts talking about the confidence that he has in Walker. Bueller? A situation where? You taking young player in an elimination jam where he's. Had certain obstacles or challenges are made games this year in different markers. And he's responded, but up until this point I was biggest one and to be in a hostile really boisterous. Clapback crowd in Milwaukee and for him to keep his composure and to execute pitches. Speaks a lot to him and not only is compete, but to eliminate kind of outside noise and still stay within a game plan. So that's very just shows a lot of moxie. He's four more polished than his birth. Certificate would indicate. He he he's ready. We kind of joked about a little bit. But I do think pitching in the college World Series gives you because for him. That was the biggest stage that you could pitch on when your college. And you pick your teams there. There's nothing bigger than that in the moment. Did you when you were with the Rancho raccoons did you guys make it anywhere in like, the regionals or anything? So what will be interesting with the Red Sox do with JD Martinez because they have a decision to make whether or not do you play him because obviously no D H in the national. They're gonna play him. Here's Alex Cora. Raj talking about whether or not he's gonna put JD Martinez in the lineup. Yeah. He's he's released a statement here. It's a lot to decipher. We'll see. Could you read more feeling? We'll see. What's the point of this? This is Alex Cora. Think that Dave Roberts is in his office. Damn didn't tell us. Now. What about what do I do? All right. I guess I'll just wait to see who comes up. Give me that Scott report on period. I got one for you. It's a Super Bowl. Tom Brady's doubtful. He's questionable. He's going and what he breaks to them will be a very dangerous. Batum care if he's got a bum ankle. I don't care if he's missing an eye or whatever he's he's as scary guy. He can have no fingers. Get a home. We're not careful. Yeah. The thing is is that we just need to worry about our house. Because while it is true. You went to be responsive proactive when it comes to what your opponents doing in baseball more. So than maybe any other sport, we have some housekeeping things that we need to work out for ourselves in terms of pitching rotation. Once again to the bullpen how long you a guy in. If someone's cooking, do you ignore the analytics and just keep riding with the guy who's hot. Have we seen Kenny Jensen? No. That say, let's go. Hey, guys, this champion a position in which I close a chance to close out a game for I think he'll pitch tonight, regardless. I yeah. Because even let's say it's eight to nothing Red Sox. You're going to see him tonight because he has a pitch in what four days now. Yeah. He needs to pitch and you're gonna maybe he won't pitch in a high leverage situation. But I think you're you're going to see him tonight almost for sure just to get a little bit of work in just to get a chance to go in there. And do something you talk about if you cooking if we find ourselves in a situation, and hopefully Keyshawn, and what he said a couple of days ago is still true that we're done with Alex wood. I'm skeptical because I thought we were done with them in late August, and he keeps showing up, but if bias or if another situation presents itself, for instance, let's say max months he's coming up to bat and they go to the bullpen, and they bring in a left handed pitcher, do you? Let him ride if he's let's say a couple of hits. Let's these hits you. Hits them. Right. But that's not how they do it. And it drives me crazy. It drives me crazy. If someone's not, I don't know someone's not a deep threat, but they just caught four passes of over forty yards on you might wanna put somebody else on somebody on them. You know, you have to be willing to look and make a judgment not just based upon the numbers, which eyeballs are speaking of numbers. You guys want some numbers jer, not sure they're encouraging. But this is about a teams that have gone up to in the series. So a team that's taking a tool lead in the World Series. They've done at fifty four times. Right. Those teams have gone on to win the series forty two of those times have a chance including each of the last ten World Series in which has occurred. But thirty one of the past thirty eight teams that going wanna I two games at home. So just Boston have they've gone on to win it. And then overall twenty one to fifty four teams that went up to have gone on the sweep the series. That's a high percent. Well, you know, when you stop those with the doorbell and everything for good news good. It was good. It was good to have good news. You know, our very own Travis Rogers, he played a college ball. He pitched right? I was able to go to a monitor's website, the Rancho coon's and get their fights on this. He seems. I'm not going to tolerate Gaucho disrespected like this. The funding findings. Inventor. That's pretty good. Better especially Guinea wins with them at least people feel good only the finest student athletes because Santa Barbara gauchos the couches mean Groucho Marx at the Groucho. The gauchos gal intimidate in. We've been doing. Well, we got face them Gaucho, right? Got those good-looking handful. Yeah. Look staring at you. Now that you mention it. The Lakers they made it back to back. They got the first win at Staples Center had his first triple double is a Laker. We'll hear from him next. Approaching three minutes to go in the Lakers sleep by two. Three. Happy birthday. To the ball tomorrow tomorrow happy birthday. He'll be legally old enough to buy drink tomorrow. Yeah. Oh, that'll be fun time. Right. Travis. That's very very refreshing to hear do you? Have his rap song the one we're playing right now. Do you have this on your your? No, no, no. I do not have any Lonzo ball lyrics on my phone. Okay. Yeah. Whatever man, not lonzo's. Not my top of my list guy. Good player. Played great last night play. Great last night. Good player. I wouldn't call them a top ten point guard yet. No. But I certainly can see him on that path. Yeah. No, he's good. I think part of it it it's it's a two. It's a two pronged thing. Number one is what he was sold as coming in. I think with the bar was set so high that it was owned be virtually impossible for him to meet the expectation in to just missed a whole bunch of time last year. So it's they're still a little bit of I need to see it a little bit more. But when he's been in he's been fantastic. And he he was in last night. And he wasn't just good. He was very very good. He twelve points, six rebounds, eight assists, five steals. Five ten from the floor to of five from behind the three point line. Can't ask for anything more. He was great all three of the magic. Rob picks were great last night of that year. There were great Zo was great heart the 2017. Yes. Those those three guys out the gate were very very good. And when I think about all the reasons why a LeBron James with hitch his wagon to a team that has made the playoffs and five seasons that he has no direct contact with that is why because he saw competency out of that front office. You saw that competency on the floor last night against an undefeated Denver Nuggets team coups heart ball, and it's v came in and came and got some really nice buckets Wagner is hurt right now, obviously. But they're hitting on the draft picks. In addition to free agency. That's the reason why I feel so good, right? They they are not just hitting l z. They're they're hitting grand slams that Kyle. Kuzma, if you took them with the fifth pick in the draft, you feel great about it. Yeah. They got him in the late twenties, Josh heart. If you pick him in the top ten you feel great about it. They got him in the late twenties. They they're they're not just getting these guys. They're getting the value of what you're getting in where you're picking them is off the charts. And I think you're right. I think that this was part of the competency of the front office clearly factored into it. But just the ability of these guys on the court, and we've got to see it last night last night was the first one we saw him beat Phoenix couple nights go, and they looked really good. But look, it's it's the sons, and it's the sons and we can talk about Devon Booker and deandre eight. And they're nice players. But it's the sons you're supposed to kick. The you know, what out of the sons? That's what you're supposed to do. Denver was a different animal. Denver is a team that had not lost a game Denver team. They have state Golden State that Yokich. I would be stunned. If he wasn't an all NBA player by the end of the season, and they went out there, and they beat them by one twenty one to one fourteen and the Lakers beat them. There wasn't given to them. It wasn't that anything weird happened. They just went out there and beat a really good team. And. I think that's as much of it is anything else that they're starting to be a really good team themselves, even though they're two and three and we're just getting started. You can see the outline of what it's going to be. And it's really nice the first season against Portland the right there. The Brian in the second half when into distributor mode because he was testing about and wanted to see what the guys can do game to we go facing opponent in the Houston Rockets that finish with sixty. Plus wins has the MVP and was like a shot of two away from making the NBA finals, and maybe even be champions. We're right there and at one point game before the frontal if you will game three the Spurs, right? That was a win. That was a win that we let slip through our fingers. And by we I'm talking about the Brian but miss free throws here miss game. When he shot there, but we were in position to win. And some of it wasn't just the brunt of some of the possessions within that last minute to that which could have better execute it. But we let us through our fingers. Those three teams all playoff bound teams. One was about the first game in a season on the road and Broadway. Never play. Well, and Bron figuring things out too against number one seed overall in the NBA last year, and you're right there in the fourth quarter with them and then game three another playoff team that goes down and getting tough fifteen player and the Rosen, and you right there until the end and and things and over time. Those are all great signs to me. Here's LeBron talking about exactly that Z about where they aren't figuring out their identity early on in the season for things as the conversation because we haven't had much time to plant so much. We start to see would eight games and eleven days. So we never have much practice time. So it's about the conversation as the film sessions that we we know we're very good when we showed a ball whenever by feel rhythm. But we're more importantly when we get styles, we all rocking down run and everyone feels apart often. So we all it's go back to this. And said it a million times the fact of the matter is you can practice, and you can have film sessions, and you can have conversations and all these things that LeBron is talking about and they're important, but you gotta. Oh, play games. And it's not just where you make. It's so rare or you just take five guys that really have not played together. And especially if one of those five guys is as big of a game changer, LeBron James's if sometimes if everybody's about the same that it can kind of come together a little bit more easily. But when you have such a megawatt personality and star in game changer, like LeBron is everything is going to take a little bit longer. We we saw Miami was on Cleveland, and we're starting to see it happen here. They got off to three start. But like you said they were in it. It's not going to happen in practice. It's not going to happen in phil-. It's going to happen on the court and they've played five games when they play fifteen it's going to look different when they play twenty five it's going to look different than it did fifteen, and that's why I'm is bullish on this group is I've is because it it's not going to regress. It's only gonna they'll have bad nights. But they're not going to get collectively worse. They're only going to get better. This is as bad as they will be and that's incredibly exciting. Yeah. Yeah. It's not like with the Oklahoma City thunder. And we're still looking for a first win. Right. And we have a big free agent signing plane, and we've got an MVP back, and we just gave us sixteen point lead Boston and still can't figure out how to win rainbow stuff by last night. So I'm looking at squad. I'm not going. Well, we're better than that. We're in a better place in that they may have the names. But in terms of the way that we're playing we came out the gate in a much better place in them and they'd been together longer. He's Houston only has one win and that one win can against us. And you could say Fussell the they got until after the fight. Yeah. Yeah. You could say that had a lot to do with them getting that one win. They're at the point now where there are four first round picks again Jimmy Butler 'cause they're already feel like they're in trouble or they're trying to go all in win chip right now. I think we're offered a better start than them. Look at Minnesota. The T wolves were supposed to have better recommend. They get the same record out the gate, and again, this is the team with three very good players that have been together the knee. You know, you know, what I'm saying? This is if. We're talking stocks. These other ones are at their highest value. The Lakers are at their lowest value arguably right now right now, we're still trying to figure these things out. And so I feel really good right now. I feel as good about this. Laker team is any Laker team. We've seen since the end of Kobe Bryant's era and the Kobe when he was all hurt and busted up we knew that that really wasn't going to work. I'm talking about when Kobe was still Koby. And you knew that every night that he went out there. You had a chance. This is exciting. It's been inaugural even more because the with that Kobe team and those teams at the end, you kind of knew what the ceiling was even Coby was full Koby. You knew that it was going to be something that was maxed out this. I don't know. What the max is. And that's what's exciting. Yeah. Absolutely. All right week. Eight fantasy football is here. Get your length advice from the football. Scientists Casey Joyner we you know, how this works. We go through it very quickly and a lot of you wanna get in. So if you wanna ask Casey Joyner your week eight fantasy football questions you wanna call right? Now. Eight seven seven seven ten ESPN eight seven seven seven ten ESPN you call so reach out on Twitter, you can send them to Raj. You can send them to me. We'll get into Casey as well. The football scientists next week eight of the NFL season we fantasy football as well. Nate seven seven seven ten ESPN is your number. If you wanna get in and ask Casey Joyner, the football scientist a question, that's the way that you can do it. Plus you can reach out on Twitter as well at Travis. Rodgers is a good way to get it to me. You can get it to Raj at Raj groves l z at l z Granderson. You can send it to him as well. So we'll get Casey on here in just a minute and go through as many of your questions as we possibly can. I wanna start asking Casey about the Rams and the Packers. And I mean. I mean Rodgers is so amazing. Let's bring him on right now, Casey Joyner. Scientists ESPN fantasy football experts morning, Casey. How are you? We aren't fantastic as well. So let's start the the Rams de we saw it. Aaron Donald did last week got Aaron Rodgers for the Packers today. Do is it Aaron Rodgers. So you always play Aaron Rodgers does the ram defense factor into it. Staggers into it. But when you look at the thought he for the for the Packers. I do blocking great for you spent fancy section. I take a look at the how they're going to impact Phoenix ice Luik. The Packers rate is see it's going to drop Rogers right down. But when you talking again, it's going to be a top rated player getting the top rank out about the mid tier key one thirty at eighteen to twenty what are you expecting over offense? Out of the round-robin expecting there blocking. I did again. And they rank top from the league in my overall blocking bases here. And they're in the top five oh pass balking at run blocking in the package. They don't have any great difference there mid tier teams. So I've got the ranch rated at be plus in the balking this week, which is a top ten ranked inside just expecting the usual. Question is early get thirty points four. The only twenty twenty then all seven games, I think that's going to be. I think he's going to trend towards thirty TC. When was the last time we saw somebody like Todd Gurley. Who was a good for like, you just said thirty points is not like, oh my gosh. Look what I got. It's almost expected at this point was last time we saw that. Commenter meeting. I mean. Back in the day to day to get somebody who can do this consistent. You know that you put them in your lineup. And he's gonna put up might win you every week. Now, you've got some players positions doing things, you know, you'll be looking at homes and touch. You've got some other players like that watching last night. So I being girlies just to guy who you could plug them in every week for twenty five plus eight see I we haven't seen. Let's go to the people. We are these show of the people rise. You went on Twitter. Yeah. Kevin from LA wants to know is this finally the week we can trust US's own Ronald Jones junior junior third. Can he start them in this flexes week? I getting enough of the carriage of the buck blocking run blocking been terrible season two weeks ago. They put up a really good performance last week. They did not put a performance. So I really don't trust blocking that much farther. Still looks like he's the lead there. So unless you in a really deep environment of your fourteen league, I might say you have if you're in anything twelve team low. I'd probably say look options. Let's go to the phones with Casey joined the football. Scientists ESPN senior NFL and fantasy football insider we will start in the I E and chino with Kevin Kevin Casey Joyner. In a day of black. Nick. I liked your blocking in Cleveland for the most part of Pittsburgh run block run defense. When you look at their grade, it's an unstable matchup for them. And I think chubby when you last week he was trying to UT hit the lion. He's trying to make homeownership in trying to hit singles he'd have a four yard carrying the outback trying to get a big play. I don't know that it's gonna work against John defense. And although I don't like the lion. So that most this week because I think they're can run the ball tunnel passing in players because it goes not cheap huge one blocking vantage against the hawks. I still think probably better by home runs and not single sounds like a member Angeles. Dodgers. Let's try another one the valley this time Northridge, and Sean Sean you're on with Casey Joyner morning guys too. I need you to pay two receivers for me in a p p r dope bowling Thomas, or our Sean Jeffrey. House is gonna have better improved match up because the secondary for the the Jaguars is banged up. You've got we as I make a trip over to England. So I really like his match a lot of us. I wouldn't care for that match up. But I'd put him in the line of because of that. Thomas in Baldwin Baldwin get better last week. But all he's still not playing the level. He has in the past. He's still take your little slowed by indoor at least not doesn't have quite the burst of he hadn't passed your. So I'm like Thomas better hit p p r league Christian Bale's Batman or Adam west. Nisa scientist or for his veil. So I gotta go Christian bale. I think was probably all right. Well, I would I guess he's about football. Now. I'm just impression in asked about Alex Smith. That was my next question. Tends to win when agent Peterson's running well, but if facing the giants with saquon Barkley, which one again you going with. The giants have that. The giants have terrible one blocking this year embark. He's doing well when he gets good blocking but Peterson's doing well getting a lot better blocking and he loved his ability to attacking by patients, not gonna give you the kind of breakway wants to Barclay is. But I would take between those two. I mean, I was paying has started Barkley over Peterson Peterson guys can be top twenty back the rest of the season. I mean, he keeps getting the block in the east getting there. I he could be an Rb one at times this year. And that's something impressively got his. Well. Casey's from Twitter verse which San Francisco running back is the one to own from here on out. I still freed. Of course, you've got the issues with the with his injuries. If he's healthy. He's got on. They don't seem to want to have anything. Do Alfred Morris he thinks their offense, but they wanna have a pass catching running back. I really like me mastered. And certainly I would pick him up in Deepa putting much any deeply Trump junior high release the backup because he showing some bursted that Morris hasn't shown any very good number. My good blocking champ metric, and I just think he's going to be somebody who have freed her. I think they're gonna lean Mostra mortar Morse Casey Joyner the football, scientists answering your week eight fantasy football questions Carlos in Los Angeles. Carlos you're on with Casey what's up morning, gentlemen? Go dodgers. Yeah. I got I got a question regarding my I got three options Christian Kurt Aaron Jones or Ronald Jones. Kristine Kirk has been the vertical receiver for the cardinals. He is almost half of their vertical yards that year east. He's that central to their offense. And you don't think is he doesn't do anything. But catch passes a little tough to be to play him. I'm not sure Tamala Jones good. I think Barbara still going to get the bulk of the carries their Aaron Jones Kevin same thing Jamal Williams area. He he should be getting more of the carries. But Williams is better pass bogging. So they don't trust Jones and all the situations that they should having said that if I'm if I'm. If I'm playing these three I'm probably gonna put Kirk I because I'm gonna play the home runs, but eh percentage play with my Pete John's because I like match at the saw the Rams are gonna be well high scoring games kind of between those two eight seven seven seven ten ESPN. If you've got a question for the fantasy or the excuse me, the football scientist is where. Panacea. Stop stereo. Did this time Andrew ender? You're on with Casey Joyner. Hey, how's it going guys? I got a question for the flex spot. I got the touchdown ghost in Christian McCaffrey. I'm waiting to score or Tyler Boyd going against Tampa Bay in the flex. At PR PR. PR PR. Thank you. I I been a great surprise this year. And it it it's great to see what he's doing PR. And you've got McCaffrey day want to Cal him. I think in that matchup. They're going to be able to bell cow him because Baltimore's past that's really strong and their run defense not nearly as strong. So I think you're allowed is going to be able to run the ball Carolina prior to last week. They were leading the league my run blocking metric so I think run the ball amick every still gonna catch him hats catch at least is at least as many passes. Void if about more she to the cabinet that one. All right. Let's get a couple more in here. Let's go to Los Angeles. And Dan, Dan, you're on Casey what's up the morning morning? So I got I got a PPO or one point four wide receiver. I need to start three out of four cook Smith Schuster Hilton and at Allman. And. Oh, yeah. I've got cooks rated lower than most. Because if you look at the Packer secondary metrics, they actually are pretty strong in the number of areas. I wouldn't think that even is quite as strong as it is. But I think it's gonna be a high scoring game. I'm not Truckee keeping the lineup misused as top twenty receiver actually make a case to be. What we talking Adeline Hilton, by the way, Indianapolis only three twenty p passive last week because they had a great run blocking vantage this week. They're gonna have a great pass vantage. So I think he's going to get a ton of pass if I probably put him in there, and I would probably say that on. All right. Let's try the last one here in riverside Adrian Adrian, you're on with Casey Joyner. What's up morning, gentlemen? Just wanted to get a trade question. Should I trade for Sean McCoy considering the trade the the Trinity's in my happen? And it's so Nick or carry on Johnson could or should I treat for him with one of those? Me trading. Carry on Johnson right now. I didn't Article V it's been plus paintings detection last week and talked about the lions run blocking. They're run blocking fantastic Tricia has kind of blocking it looking for and carry on. He's got nearly twice as many orange pa- carry on good blocking plays as Garrett block. So that makes him an incredibly productive back compared to competition. I think he's going to be the guy there to shovel McCoy, it's a tough call there. Chubb is not going to be the lead block of it. If a Koi as we get ready to get treated team with good run blocking probably want him over Chubb for the season. But I guess on several and blocking but McCoy doesn't get traded to team that has better run blocking on. I'm gonna watch up. So be kind of up in the air. Just you have to have their what it's not, it's lamb donkey. I'd probably say no unless they knew who are has gone, Casey Joyner, the football scientist, ESPN senior NFL and fantasy football insider joins us every single Friday KC real quick if you. Have an Oakland raider on your team? P P R DP are VCR. Sued you, get rid of them. And I'm looking at Derek Carr right now. But just just across the board. I would probably keep Jared cook and fantasy because you're saying that he position is readily been this year, and he's probably a t one in pretty much any violent almost anybody else. I would think about getting rid of I'm Mike keep Doug Martin and deeper league because he's going to be the leap back now. But I mean, if you talk at ten team, they wouldn't even want him at Casey Joyner T F S on Twitter, and I've seen these questions even after he comes on. So you might get lucky there at Casey Joyner T F S, Casey, always. Thank you. Thank you, sir. You got it. He's good, man. They'll people hit them after the show. They search. He keeps keeps firing in the answers back Bill your fan base. That's right. You know that a dumpster fire. This Oakland Raiders is bad as their record is I see one two three possession games that the two of the three one possession games. They should be better. That's why they didn't need to torpedo this whole. That's why they didn't need to the house to the ground to rebuild it from scratch the Lakers and the second star one of those guys is on the market potentially. And the price might be oust astronomically high. We'll talk about who it is. And what the cost is next fortunate the game show for people who can do jeopardy. So what do both by intellectual? What fortune. I can play jeopardy. Yes, exactly what you'd be. That's the by intellectual. The sentences or whatever this the phrase. Yeah word. They are coats synthesis, though. Running out of were unaware. Here's. Happy birthday pets Ajax. Good. He's a huge dodger fan. He's in a ton of those games. If you know, you always see oh my gosh. I'm blanking on her name. Mary Mary Hart. Vernon Shirley, Mary Hart. She's Mary hurts their Mary hearts at every game. She he he's usually right in that little section. He's a I know jaycees always there. He's always there and seen. King king goes to a lot of games. Yeah. Keyshawn wasn't on episode of wheel of fortune. Once I did not did he win. No, no what he lasted long dance with audio. Lasted shorter. We do have audio from Keyshawn on the show though. All right here. He goes, I don't know what that is. That's for every question that was asked if he didn't do in score many points that way. But that's jets birthday is brought to you by Jaguar Land Rover Newport Beach, soft Seventy-three toward the seat. Maybe at the Rancho raccoons where Travis played but anyway, visit Land Rover Newport Beach dot com. Land Rover, it's above and beyond near that the car dealership, you're by my neighborhood down in Orange County. The UC Santa Barbara gauchos, of course, play in lovely Santa Barbara. With the Cowboys. Just unique singular. Yes source skunks. No, one wants to go to his side Elsie just look on this side of the window. So where were you when they were making fun of my voice in my absence. Band. They want you to have his back while you're bringing up old stuff. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't do a lot of things. But I listen pretty good listener. So going back to the off season when the Lakers were going after LeBron we've figured that. Lebron was going to be the guy that would get the second star. Didn't get it in Paul George decide to stay in Oklahoma City. They couldn't get a deal done with Leonard in the Spurs. So he ends up in Toronto. And the Lakers. I guess presumably would still be looking for that second star, right? And Jimmy Butler's name always pops up. He's going to be a free agent at the end of the year. We know that he's very unhappy and Minnesota the tea we he has wanted out according to ESPN dot com in whoa, JR. A review the the the lead from his piece the Houston Rockets are making a renewed bid to acquire. Minnesota Timberwolves all star Jimmy Butler, including four future first round draft picks in their most recent offer league sources told ESPN four for one cells e now that could be garbage for garbage number ones. Because. If in fact it happens, and you have Chris Paul James harden and Jimmy Butler along with the very healthy. Clint cappella patrolling the pain of you're not getting the lottery pick up twenty Twenty-nine big. Right. So is sounds on the headline sounds like shocking. Like, oh my God four first rounders. But these basically early second rounders when you consider this success that the projected to have but Jimmy Butler, you know, I saw him Legler. He doesn't feel that. Jimmy Butler addition to the Houston Rockets quad means a challenge to Golden State Warriors. I disagree. I think that authencity obviously he's able to create his own shots. Not just dependent upon those two guys and Chris Paul and James harden. But defensively he has short that these they let when they lost Trevor REEs, and my booty, he's a very good perimeter defender. He's a willing to Fender part of the reason why he's having a hard time. Minnesota's because he's surrounded by guys who don't have the same toughness on a. Offense to that involves he does. So I'm not willing to say that they're going to dethrone them right away. But to dismiss them I think it's premature if they were to get Jimmy book. I think you bring a good point about where those first round picks might be. They're going to be at worst. I guess depends on how you wanna friends at best. You're probably picking somewhere in the low twenties high teens at at best and probably more than likely in the last part of the first round. I get it. It's not what you're doing. But here's the flip of that. The Lakers have found incredible value. And that's on the draft in Daryl Morey is a very capable general manager. You would think that he would be able to find if not similar value at least value in the late picks in the draft. And if this was a team that there was built around James harden, exclusively than sure you put. But I think a big part of what makes the rockets a threat to Golden State. What makes the rockets of threat to be one of the best teams in the Western Conference? And maybe get a chip is the combination of James harden. Chris paul. Chris Paul's old Chris Paul is playing in in less games every single season. Usually he plays in a handful less than he did the year before they gave him a whole bunch of money and long-term security, and this is a man who breaks down and his breaking down more often than he did. And if that trend continues in Chris Paul is on the rack, more and more James harden has to carry more and more of the burden. We're talking about a situation where those pig you're going to need to get younger because your number two guy, or maybe it'd be too a at this point of Jimmy Butler comes in, but you're going to need some picks. And you don't have any in. You got all this money tied up. You're going to need not only picks. You young inexpensive players right without picks or two without picks. That is hard to do. This is clearly an all or nothing move by the Houston Rockets, if they were to choir him, but you know, the silver lining in this for if you're Minnesota, of course, is that if you trade Jimmy Butler, and you get a bunch of late round picks Jimmy bundle thirtieth. You can't hit. Sure. The question is do you have a guy in place who can find those gyms if it was RC Buford in pop if it was as you mentioned with Maury. If it was Lincoln magic point magic. They can do something for late round pigs. I'm not sure if tips is that guy. He's too busy bringing in the old bulls. Taj Gibson, Gary who was playing well, but still you can't build that for the future. So I don't know if the Minnesota's gonna pull the trigger. I mean, part of the reason why they haven't pulled the trigger yet on a deal because tips doesn't wanna give any Butler. No he wants that toughness on the squad. But the not willing to pay them, and they made them for nothing. And you can't do it. Can't did your and Tibbs is not only head coach. But he's in the he's the guy that's making these decisions as well. You can't no he loves him. I know he loves his toughness. I know that he's he's about what Jimmy Butler is about. But as the coach, I get it. But as the executive you can't let him walk out the door and get nothing coming back. You you just can't do it. So he's gonna move at some point to bring this which which is why once again if I'm the Lakers front office. I just make a phone. Call and kick attire say, you know, what, you know, Houston Rockets is trying to offer you, you know, some twenty seven thirtieth pigs and stuff for Jimmy Butler. We'll give you this one piece and then a future pick. And then in NBA ready piece right now, relatively inexpensive. Good to go. Good to go. I've got an update. Yes. From Minnesota fairly, you know, my people. Kris van Damme. I gotta get another. Minnesota is showing no inclination to move on to Houston offer of the two injured players and four first rounders for Jimmy Butler. So no movement. They were not impressed with the offer. Everybody's a no until there. Yes. Jimmy butler. Settle down. It's no, no, no no in. Oh, you give me this pick this player in its Travis. You're gonna have to sit through this. You started it. Yeah. What on a pride? Anyone? The great philosopher, keep sweat also said when you say, no, I say, yes, that's what's on. This is Travis. This is what rose is clean. Impeach three. The to the Minnesota Timberwolves. We'll hold on. Let me check. It's twenty eighteen we're not allowed to do this anymore. We aren't allowed to say. No be alright had a nice night. Maybe to move on Jimmy Biki sweat navy. Maybe I think you do make the call. I do. But I think what we saw last night in. This is your cores. Go ahead and seeing Jarvis. Come on. Stray. No, no. I don't again. I don't know any of it. You know key swing. He stopped touring. He actually worked right down the hall right now. That's disrespectful. You can't just respect the great teeth. Trump's go for it. He was on the breakfast club. Or we're gonna breakfast. Yeah. We should get them on. We're going to we're gonna work on sweat was in the breakfast club with Molly ringwald and if and if he declines. My god. In his defense. He was a little boy. And. That's record was. I I didn't know there was a second one. There's no. Yeah. That's a group in the New Yorkers on the radio. The breakfast cla very poverty of tower. One actually good. I supposed to know. But it's way on the other side county times. I get it. You make the call. Sure awe offer a piece kick the tire, whatever. But I think that what we're seeing what the Lakers with Kaku in particular. And and potentially with Lonzo ball as well that you know, what I don't have to say, whoa. What's it gonna take to get linear? What's it gonna take to get Jimmy Butler? I can't let the Miami Heat getting here. I I can't let the Houston Rockets getting here and get them first because I have to get it avai get it. I don't get it. They can be thinking I'd like to have it. But I'm not going to overpay for it. Exactly. Because I have other pieces that may turn into exactly what you have right now, and maybe even more so I I can bargain shop a little bit. I don't have to give you everything I've got to get your piece because I've got a whole bunch of things that might turn into something just as good as a Jimmy Butler. Absolutely. And you're listening to Caspian loss being less. Unless. Who's going to get the bump up a bump my? All right, anyway, eleven is eleven every go. When you look at the depth that we have at the wing position, we are in a place where we can offer up a young peace and quickly elevate by getting an all NBA performing Jimmy Butler, but I'm not willing to give up an important young piece for a thirty year old who might bolt anyway. And we're not an all or nothing position. Like, the Houston Rockets are because of what you mentioned with Chris Paul. Our Chris Paul if you will the broad James never gets hurt. And he's eats. You know, any plays in the playoffs. Doctor you talked about Chris Paul breaking down. He doesn't just breakdown. He breaks down you need him. Most just like last season and the season before the the playoffs is not his fault as fluky things. I get all of that. It is it's true though. But at a certain point, you know, it's Clayton Kershaw into postseason given up the at a certain point, you are what your record is for Chris Paul. You get hurt consistently in the postseason when your team needs you most? And it's unfortunate, but they do need a backup plan, otherwise great experimented doing and all this minute. Get tied up every postseasons get derail by an injury. And Jimmy Butler is not Chris Paul, but he missed time last year two and the way the Jimmy Butler play Jimmy public places guts out. Yeah. I mean, he he is a tough tough guy that it's going to go out there, and he's not going to coast. He's not going to save himself. He's going to go out there, and he's going to blood and guts it up because that's his game. And that sort of game typically does not age. Really? Well, it doesn't it just went once it goes it goes in Nelson. You're not making a move for Jimmy Butler in the short term. This is not a, hey, let's make a show where you're gonna have to resign him. Because if you're going to empty your cover two picks, like let's just say that the the rockets deal goes through I'm giving you my four picks. I'm not gonna let him turn around and walk out the door nine months. No, you can't do that. So now, you got dump committed to Chris and Jimmy Butler. Nj. But James harden, I feel good about having on my books for whatever it is the next five or six years, James heart still relatively. Yeah. That prevents you for being able to at least I knew it was going to be out some certain moves forward. And that's that's the problem. Because after in two years, you're not gonna trade Chris. You're not gonna trade. Chris Paul just getting stuck with years. I'll give it two years because as long as bloody and Tim's got jobs a chance you can move that. But in two years them do to be gone. What would you like to be the Lahti to be the butt of that? Because by the way, he did good joke. He did it. I don't disagree. But did you you're the guy that every says a who's flawed Plotti? That's john. You're that guy. You mentioned Minnesota. Minnesota's a team that's been around. They've had good players. Go through Minnesota. They've never been good. They've had Kevin Garnett. They've had more. They've had Kevin love they've had Jimmy Butler and cat and all these guys. They're never good. They might not stink. Sometimes, but they're never. Good. This is like as long as the blank is in the league. When you got a chance to dump your trash on exactly the funny thing is that David Stern, the former shea dams, right? And the reality is that stirred his kinda, right? When you look at that roster and the drafts that they've had. And you realize the Anthony Davis is the only guy he's drafted us stilling squad. All these years. Not like, you know, David Stern is all that wrong. And yet Vlada has been so bad. He's been at the leapfrog that guy, and we don't talk about him as being a bad GM. We don't now until David Stern to backing up again. Yeah. Who did you draft this year? He didn't even couch. It that was what was crazy. It was even look the situation in management. There's a little iffy. Little quickie said dealt is a lousy. Yeah. Well, you know owed aids and freedom do that for money. That's what I'm saying freedom when you don't give a info. He did you don't have to couch it and things like that. But I only thing when it comes to Jimmy Butler posse Beena rocket is that does give us one more significant obstacle for our goal this season that Jimmy Butler if you're in a conversation with Jimmy Butler, adding the rockets candidate, the Golden State Warriors that puts us one more spot way for being that conversation. Yeah. Yeah. I mean that that would be they are a good team. And they would go from being a good team to be in a really good team. Maybe they we talk about how Golden State's on their own tier. I think if you put Jimmy Butler on that team. They probably join them then the tier three chips in four years. But on the tier of some weird can have to happen for you to beat that team on any given night. So it's going to have to happen for you to beat them four times in seven games in the something weird could be the other teams got five all stars Golden State, but I come coming back to Lakers for sick. We we going into this off season. It was talked about a lot. But I think we've almost already kind of moved past it because LeBron's here because it looks right because we're excited about what's happening right now and Koi, Jimmy Butler, whoever else might shake lose the the fact that the Lakers have have gotten the team together that they have LeBron being the most important piece that they've got young talent Ingram ball, heart coups. And by the way, they've got this bankroll that they can go spend they've got that. They were able to do this to track thing where get a star. Lebron be young flexible inexpensive over here with these guys. And I can go out and have pieces to trade. I have money to spend the flexibility that to track that they've been able to do this on is extraordinaire, usually only get one we're gonna be young and expensive and tons of room to bring guys in. But you don't have anything that means anything. Now, they have both, you know. That that team up north is kicking everybody's ass right now in Boston too and Boston too. Yeah. Don't boston. Boston success was was was really based not necessarily on their own genius. But on the stupidity of the trader happen with Brooklyn. That's that's what happened for them. They got lucky because they had their body devotes. Come in says, hey, you get them to forty nine year olds back there give you my future. And I get these forty nine basketball soul for two old men part of it. You can apply to the Lakers. Guinea also resisted, the urge to give away those picks that Brooklyn gave them in order to trade for people. They did it to get Kyrie Irving for Friday at Thomas, Kyrie Irving right now with one pick. They finally gave up all the rest of them. They didn't they just held onto and resisted there and not only they resist the urge they went out and use those picks and got the right guys you draft. Jaylen Brown you draft Jason Tatum. You you. You just didn't have picks you went out and picked guy. That turned into be really really good NBA players. And that's where the Lakers are too. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's it's it's looking like it's going to be us because of the competency of our front office in talent that we've acquire Golden State, obviously, the Celtics and maybe Toronto in terms of Costa's special stays in terms of flexibility, and you'd think about going forward who's going to be there next season in the season two that I don't think the Houston Rockets is a season after that sees after t they are the reason why the headlines dominating news right now is because they're at a point of all or nothing right now because of the fragility of Chris Paul's health, the rockets your higher on them than I am. I think they're going to be good. I think they're the second best team in the west. I don't think that they stink by any stretch of the imagination. But the rockets feeling that we see it happen in sports a lot. There's a team that gets close in. They have they got a look at it. It's a right there, you go back to Oklahoma City when they got into the finals, and then they had the warriors on the ropes after that that you. You you you're worth right. It's and it just doesn't. And then for whatever reason guy gets hurt. Now. The guy gets traded another guy becomes unhappy. This. There's a coaching whatever it is that you get right there. And you feel like okay, we missed it. But we're gonna get back and they just never get back for whatever injuries coat. That's what the rockets feel like to me because I think those Reza and Bob moon Jae. Those guys were really it's not hard. And it's not. Pieces and they're gone. There are -portant pieces. And this is the reason why when we look back on the career of LeBron James, we can't just couch it as he's played in the east. And that's why he went to eight straight finals, you have to realize that those windows, regardless of conference. They don't stay open for teams. No, they don't stay open. No matter how much town you have twice in the four times in which he played Golden State Warriors. He didn't have Kyrie Irving twice and they won the damn it didn't have Kevin love across the box score. And even when there. That's what I'm saying. So their presence rebounded that game seven you leave him alone. He did rebound the you're right. He did rebound. I game seven. Then you right. No hidden rebound in play. Well, he rebounded the ball. Yeah. That's what I meant. Yeah. That's not bad. These these opportunities to win chips. They don't stay open long for no team. And the federal the Brian James on two different franchises were able to have sustained success for four seasons back to back for seasons. That's not just because of the conference has because of his greatness. Yes. You have that do. Yes. Now only thirty five win team that has its number two pick healthy, I'm sitting here. And I can't say this enough people who thought this team wasn't going to make the playoffs. It baffles me it. It's it's I think it's the last remnants of that anti LeBron stuff. I think most of it is gone. I think that the vast majority of the people that were hold. Ding onto the hey, he's not fill in the blank here. I think almost all that had been gone. But I think there's still a little bit left, and we'll wait until he gets into it. No, no, no stop. So they undefeated Denver Nuggets team that had you know, one of the best defenses in the league comes into our house, and we drop one twenty on him cinema home with the nail. Right. I was apprised. I thought I thought leaders will lose this game. I was free season. These in Denver one in the preseason. Backing last year. I man no, they weren't a playoff team. But I really liked the joker and I like Murray, and I like some of the pieces they have. So I thought this was actually the Lakers win. I was surprised. It was good win for pieces of better that we talked about the pieces the window for the Lakers in LeBron is the the biggest reason for this. But the window is openness widely as it is with LeBron James's extraordinaire because he's this is his sixteen season in the league. I know in knock on the desk, again, I know that he hasn't been hurt. I know that he's the best player of his generation. I know that he might be the greatest player of all time. I I'll cosign all of. That. But he's thirty four years old coming into sixteenth league six here in the league. At some point. You would think that that window would start to get who ordered ended in the opening would get narrow it feels. It says why does it's ever been a because of him and be because what we just talk about the flexibility, the roster death and the talent it's not just that. Hey, we got LeBron. We gotta take the biggest one you've got a trade. Everybody for kyri trade. Everybody for choir should say treat everybody for Jimmy Butler. It's hold on hold on. Let's see what we got here. Because this might leave it open not for a year or two, but it might leave it open for five or six. Yeah. I feel really good about this the growth this roster and the level of competence from rob. And and magic that when LeBron says goodbye whenever that is. If we have these guys and may twenties, we're straight. Yeah. We're straight and Anthony Davis and. And. And davis.

ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis HR 2
Whoa. Big potato guy. I am if I had never eaten anymore, mashed potatoes as long as I live. I'll come out gay. It's just I if you said to me, I can never have mashed potatoes again. All right. I mean, I would like to still have them I like him. But if you send me, no more potatoes, that's dealbreaker. I give up a bunch of stuff. I'd give up if you said to me, you can never have another piece of pie piece of cake or something sweet fine rather. But if you said, no, more French fries are made out of potatoes. I understand that. I understand that. So what are we talking about? Not have French fries. Oh, stop. It could go without French fries. Yeah. Forever. No. I can't say I have French fries. Now. He didn't. You know, it's also national stuffing day. Yeah. Well, that makes sense. Okay. Traps. Giving me a lot. That's stuffy before thanksgiving. Okay. Okay. Do a bit not everything's that. Yeah. It is. No, it's not. I miss rush. Rosh don't take any more days on not everything is that. All right. The Rams can do something that no NFL team is done in eighty years this week. And obviously they're gonna play a game. If Seattle loses this week, the Rams Clinton division. And they're there we twelve it would be a week twelve the Clinton first time in eighty years since somebody has clinched division without playing a game that goes back to the Packers back in nineteen thirty eight year for me nineteen thirty eight. Yeah. Because I think if you just look at American history, you'll be at a piece together. When is this a real thing? Can I do a bit or no you can do a bit? Okay. Not the bit. Yeah. Voting. Just keep going. I'm gonna I'm gonna have to at some point. I hope that the saints. Keep winning for the simple because the Rams are gonna win the division. The Rams are probably going to be the second seed, even if Chicago continues to play well because I just don't think that they're going to be able to hold I need. I need the saints to keep winning for the simple fact that I think that the Rams would like to stay out of the Superdome. I think that given given a perfect scenario. They'd rather be posted up here in L A through the playoffs. Did not have to go Superdome loud. The saints are different in that building than they are the places. So I hope that they keep wanting. So the Rams keep winning and we get to see them play it out because we last year they didn't play in week seventeen. And I still think it had some collectively to the way that they played enough. I play. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I do. I thought the first playoff game. Which is about jitters, it was about player jitters, it was about coaching jitters, it was about not really having home field advantage. You know, we were there. But not eagles fans there. So there wasn't any energy for the players even feed off to help them get over their jitters. And he just hadn't experienced team, even though. Yeah. I mean, look the falcons were an experienced team. And they it to me it felt it was a double. It was a double whammy number one big is brand new first time that other than a handful of guys in really I think other than Andrew Whitworth. No one had really play that was going to play really played in any of these games. But they had just been to the super thick. There's rhythm. I I think that there's there's some idea of staying sharp and staying I I don't think it's eighty percent of it. But I don't think it's four percent of it either. I think it's somewhere in the middle of having that rhythm because they everything about them was just click. Click click, and then all of a sudden they came in. And it wasn't clicking. It was disjointed. Maybe it was just I mean herbs. I mean one you know because of the previous season the the season that they actually played in scheduling wise, perhaps they didn't face as much tough defense. As the falcons day when they brought him in the falcons pin the ears back and said that's a second year QB back there, and we're going after them, and we're going to give him heat, and we will make on comfortable, and we're never gonna get that rhythm because we know what it takes to be a young guy like that a young team like that. And that's what they did. We were never we weren't blown out. But we were never in it. No, no. Well, I mean, not to go over all, but Ferro Cooper putting to punch on the ground. I mean, the playoff you're gonna lose you. You can't do that. I it and that happened early in the game. No. He's a pro bowler. Had a great season. He get a great season and a terrible game. Right. I mean, both of those things were true. I I we talked about this just I just it feels like the Rams are in a position where they don't need to they need to catch a break last year. They needed to get through that first game. They needed to overcome the fact that they hadn't played in a playoff game. They needed to do all these little things that Philadelphia didn't have Carson Wentz and nothing has to go. Right. They just if they play. Well, no one's going to beat them. I mean, they pretty well Monday, and they won and they won. It was nerve wrack. Yeah. But they're not gonna win every in forty five to ten at one. They definitely want here. Here's the thing. If it comes down to New Orleans versus the Rams, I think is simply about where if if it's here now lay we win if it's en New Orleans. I think we moved that game. I think as simple as that. So to your point about playing it out. I don't care about playing out to keep the rhythm. Because even if you play it out you still get a week off the bye, I don't care about the plane and nothing in terms of rhythm. But I do care about in terms of securing the number one seed, I don't feel very good about going back to New Orleans and trying to get one because even though we managed to tie the game and a fourth quarter and was in position to win until Keyshawn nephew decided destroyed homes and dreams. I don't I don't might going back in there with those states with that guy was like the MVP in that environment with that noise. I don't I don't like that. I don't like it either. But here's why they'd have shot. I put it this way. I think they'd have a better. The Rams have better chance of winning New Orleans. The New Orleans does have a winning LA. And because the next time they play that game assuming they play that game Suming that everything goes, according to plan, they're gonna have keep Toledo. Yeah. Key to leave is. Their best perimeter defender. He's their best corner. He's their best guy that he can follow. Michael thomas? Look, Mike Thomas is going to get his he's a good. He's too good of a player. You're not. He's not going to have to catch nineteen yard day. He's not gonna have that he's gonna get his. But if all of a sudden put Talita on him, I appears on the second guy can start to move some people pieces around and again, I get it was Aruna. It was Oakland too bad teams. But went to leave was here that defense look different as bad as AirAsia is as bad as they are their NFL players, and they didn't get across the fifty yard line. With those literally cross the fifty yard line with that group. That is impressive. But that drew Brees. Do he's not Sam twenty five touchdowns. One interception. I think it's completely seventy percent of his passes. He's good and the. In the past. He's throwing the net offscreen passes. No, no, no. He's going down to the Rams can match them. They just knew they needed to get. They don't throw that interception. And again that was not a bad throw by Jared Goff. That was a great play by the if Sean McVeigh either decides not to go for it. Or if they converted and there were a path of football short from converting it they win that game that was a player too. And I know that you could say that about a lot of say say that this wasn't that they point in New Orleans and got house in the final scores. Forty five to fourteen they tied at thirty five. They outplayed New Orleans in the second half. This put themselves in such a deep hole to beginning of the game. I still think in I have I still think the Rams are better than the saints. I think they have a better defense. I think that they have as good of an offense. Maybe a better offense think they're special teams are better. I just think they're a better team. They just got beat. They lost to a good team on the road. They'd loss to a good team in Rhode and that's Neo is. Quite possible again on the road. Which is why I really prefer that they wanna see to not have to lead. And that's the only team by the win NFC feel that way I feel as if they can go anywhere else including Minnesota. I didn't scare me. What else? I don't want to go Green Bay Chicago housing, really. And I know that is not a great team because Green Bay can't get the the the road in the NFC doesn't go through go through them. I just wanna see us face them yet. But even if they again, they played him and beat him. And I know time Montgomery did something really stupid. We all know if he is the football. They're winning that game. Maybe we were pretty sure about that. Pam homes had the football twice the end of the game. And it didn't homes, I know Iraq. Stand. He's not here in rot Aaron Rodgers. He's real real good on that to a lot of people. I I don't think we're giving the Rams enough credit for beating air we instantly assumed because time Gumri did that thing that oh the Rams dodged a bullet. They won the game. Aaron Rodgers had the ball. I don't know how many times how many drives at twelve times. But they they beat him ever. We we we know that dude at that time in the game. And the reason why Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers isn't. Because what he's done to quarters went through three is because in those situations time and time again, he has ripped teams hearts out. And you're trying to tell Lee. Get sixty yards. Look, I'm not sick. Z? I. This this. I put two point. I'm not worried about Aaron Rodgers again because he has to come here. I will beat him Jared Goff in twenty degrees Soldier Field. Doesn't feel as good doesn't feel good. But I do feel better knowing now that are tied ends have proven to be reliable because in bad weather when you do have to pass the ball. It's nice to have a nice big body in the middle that you can just dump a five yard pass to that. Dude. Let's say that here's the scenario. Okay. It's the NFC championship game. You have two choices. You can play the bears on the road and Soldier Field or you can play Aaron Rodgers at home which game. Would you rather play? There's really in twenty degree weather you want. Aaron Rodgers have good weather. Yeah. On air Rogers to have good weather in the playoff. Inexperience Gerry Goffin the cold. And it does not look the have you see Aaron Rodgers and good weather. I have and I've seen domes Aaron Rodgers has been Lee how long he's he's awesome. He's lost a bunch of those. He has lost those games that part is true. But the last time we saw Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs. He went in and smacked up. A what was a twelve or thirteen and three? Dallas Cowboys gone. Just look up your mic on. But no, no you had you barely made the playoffs. You're on the roads that you really shown the Joyce is do I want the Rams at ten at ten in LA more. Do I want them at eight and a half out of ten in the weather because Jared Goff, and it's not just Goth? Everybody keys set it over and over again that cold weather when these these guys are not cold weather, guys. I get cold weather guys. I honestly I do get that. But give me that that suspect quarterback who also throw in the wind and in the snow, right inexperience. I mean, you're asking me would I rather be on the road to face an inept offense with integrators quarterback in the NFC champ game. They're there by the wind willing lost three games this year. They're good. We're we're going to see these bears December ninth. And I'm not in cold. I'm gonna tell you right now. We're gonna win that game. No, you gotta be careful the bears in the cold. You know what? I mean. Those bears get they get out of control in the poll. How would you know that you taught me? When you get to Santa Monica just park, your car and walk which way to right. You know, you're in select Travis. You still like going to Santa Monica too. National JJ. Chris wondering ocean avenue, it's national read Minton day. Can you wear written Redmond's when you walk left or right? Listener red Mindy. Who makes these winners national blue mittens day? That's racism. That's right. We just have national days. Okay. It's part of the bits. Lebron going back home in Cleveland tonight. It's gonna take the Lakers in there for the first time. We'll get into it next. Sern much comedy. You. Is he the riches country music artists? Now. Richest richest in terms of touring and stuff. Yeah tory. Yeah. Let's Luke, Bryan. Yes. Yeah. Come on. Really come on, Luke, Bryan. We do the bit. But come on got it. Right. I didn't know it. He didn't know is he really like more than I know Garth. Brooks hasn't been Garth Brooks for a while. But Jason aldean there's a bunch of them out there. He's really populace popular with a young people's. All right. The country people, obviously, he's fine. He performed a Dodger Stadium over the summer last summer mean and nobody's ever done that countrywide country wise. Really? Yeah. He was the first Dodger Stadium. I didn't know that. He was the only one that did that. I didn't know that either. We did it on the show. But thanks, see. That was the summer. You are sick over the summer. You know? I did not hear that retired. I heard that that burns you worked here. You just weren't with us. You're in that after noon show before we did the swap and trade sign a trade. Swap and trade with whatever why swat. Keep going keep you head to everything's about that, I miss. I'm not gonna let him and his preoccupation with exclusively that muscle me in new Elaine that I don't wanna go in. How you don't even use the word you call it that. That it's all he's dad right about that. Guys, not talking. A bit of szeswith a bit. It's the only thing that he talks about is. That me I'm Rosh does a two. And so does ki ki that's the thing. C g is giving us signs with his faces constantly knows. We're talking about keys the biggest child of all of us. That's not true. That's not true. Anyway, look, Ron. I think they're gonna be thrilled to see him. I think the reserve the the reception is going to be incredibly warm, and it should be. I mean, this is a guy that has done everything you could since he went back. You couldn't have done more for the city for the organization for the the the cat everything about it was in a plus. I mean, you can't honestly expect him to win a chip every year is there that he got one in the middle of this warrior run is extraordinarily he built the school. He was a model human being in every possible way. What else could you want from this guy? Well, I think there are people who because of the way that he's been characterized as in the goat conversation some same better than Jordan. And they go to the finals, they find reasons to pick. There are reasons that when he's on the court and complains about calls people say cries too much. That's true. I mean, there are things that you can look at now I happen to the Bron James the man as well as the athlete combined to make one of the greatest stories in sports history. But you consider where he's come from. And what he's become. I I mean, it's it's quite remarkable. You know as on par with. You know, anyone who has gone through a war torn sort of situation gap picked up and then became a great player. Like Novak Djokovic from he what's my war-torn country in the now, he's among the greatest of all time his story. I mean, he's like a billion dollar Nike, man. Yeah. He this isn't Tiger Woods that went to Stanford, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. This is a kid from a broken home, essentially at one point was homeless sleeping in the car with his mom and stuff like that. And hasn't gotten in trouble one doesn't want nothing which you don't get a part of not getting trouble. Okay. I wanna make it sound. Oh, you didn't even get in trouble. Here's an award. No. You're not supposed to get in trouble. But considering his background. He didn't get in trouble. When you talk to him you listen to him. He sounds that. He has a master's degree in sociology. Even though we know he didn't go to college. But he lived at what he lived at. And he reads, and he pays attention. He's still informed. He's he's very intelligent and physically. He's a combination of things that we haven't seen before until the speed and strength and heightened and power. So you're right L Z that he you're right. Specifically about LeBron in generally in the sense that it's it's a weird place. You find yourself in what you're saying. Hey, good job that you've never gotten arrested that should be the the minimum Steiner for all of us. Right. But the circumstance that you described and it's not just getting in trouble with the police or he hasn't even had those gaffes publicly that can reflect poor law poorly on you from a marketing perspective or from a PR issue that he hasn't it. His greatest defense was the decision which it with the with the passage of eight years. It's like we were upset about that. Really come on man that I mean that that's the wo-. The worst thing people could say is they didn't like the decision and that he winds about the officials. That's the criticism that we have LeBron James that he doesn't have a perfect record in the finals. That's the criticism that we choose for this guy that we decided some really weird things to focus on that. We don't like about this guy because if any other. Fleet had been as famous as LeBron James from the time. He was what seventeen years old, okay, younger younger than the time. He's a teenager until he's in a sixteen season in the NBA. He's won three NBA championships. He's won multiple indepedent PC's been the best player in the league for ten years plus in or longer than that, he's been the center of attention from the second. He showed up in the league. He's been the people have been waiting to say Gotcha. From the moment. He showed up in the worst thing. We could say is he bitches about the referees. Oh, he complete. He the decision was student. That's what we that's what we're going to pick on him about. That's stupid. It's stupid. But it's also reflection of just how good he's he has been for the sport for sports and society, you can't say enough about his philanthropic work. Yeah. You know from the bike rides used to do an Akron when he was younger to now have in school there. He does things here now lay. He's he's done fantastic things in terms of specter schooling. Miami. He's been for the most part a model citizen. He really has tried folk all here. Let's go to LA Habra. And Steve Steve you're on the morning show. What's going on? Hey, guys, just want to say I love the show especially Travis came on. I agree. Listen to the show. I mean, a lot of us were big Howard Stern fans. We don't even listen to that show anymore on a ride to work in the morning. We're driving our UPS listen to this show. So I want to thank you guys. Thank you so much. Got a great show. Really? It's fun. But I have to do Travis a little bit Raj childish in the back in the back when it's all about that. Does bring the show to driving home because you can tell Travis and Keith don't even want to go there because God forbid, they should say something jokingly back and taking the wrong way. And then they. Yeah. Well, I hear you Steve. Thank you. Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate that Nailsea. And I both that you guys. Listen rogers. It's it's sometimes. Too much too much that. Yeah, that's because they don't care about sports hit clearly split you trying to make it funny. And he said he wasn't who is over Howard Stern. I didn't know how it was still on. But that's cool. No, I'll take that. Curse or anything? No. We do not here. Yeah. If they really unleashed us. Got really just let us he's already sticking his hairline. Man. You walk now yesterday. We did you. You're the first. We had a bright. But we Elsie was the first ever walkout despite everything we do everyday he broke. I didn't know option or I'm gonna walk out a lot sooner. I've actually walked onto the past. Have you ever used profanity on the air universally? No. Yeah. Chris did you ever let one? Yes, I've done it. Why did it wouldn't? We're at Yahoo. I had one once. Actually, actually, I did. Yeah. I did once we remember thinking it was like Madonna's birthday or something. And I started talking about vogue and how vogue actually came out of the black queer community. And as I was talking about trying to get angry because she took credit for. And I think all appropriation a little bit among the many things that she's appropriate. I remember that David everything George I've just kind of liked it from. I was George. And I just said that beast on our blink. That's not. So the second part that you're not supposed to be Casey joined the football scientists. He's going to join us next. Get you ready for week twelve of the NFL season your fantasy football season. If you have a phone call. He had a question for Casey Joyner calls right now. Eight seven seven seven ten ESPN eight seven seven seven ten three seven seven six your questions for Casey, join the football scientists coming up next. It isn't a Friday. But it is the day before a very busy NFL. Thursday course, thanksgiving three games. So you're gonna wanna make sure that your fantasy lineup is set before you get to the games tomorrow. So Casey Joyner joining us a couple of days earlier than he typically. Getting ready for week twelve of your fantasy season. ESPN senior NFL fantasy football insider, Casey Joyner, Casey, happy thanksgiving. Are you? Quick question for you. How high did she blend me with science peak on the billboard charts? Oh, wow. Excellent question. I would bet that it went tot Cam. But I don't think it wouldn't have a want. Everybody to hurt. But I I was back then I kid back then. But I I would think it went. It did is number five number five back in nineteen eighty to eighty dollars. His one hit wonder. So Casey before we get to the phone calls. If you got a phone call for Casey, eight seven seven seven ten ESPN, eight seven seven seven ten ESPN. You can also send in question via Twitter as well at Travis Rodgers. I'll see it right there. You can fall Casey on Twitter at KC Joyner T F S. I mean fantasy football wise. What did we see Monday night? I mean, fifty four to fifty one the Rams and the chiefs all of the played, maybe the exception of girly performed at a level. I don't know if it was at the greatest fantasy football game of all time had v. I was in a league insta- one of my editors city people say editors, and it going into the game was I think it was a head by ten and by the end of the game he had three players, and I didn't have any is third most points in the league that week, but he had two hundred and thirty four points. He he he like sixty it was it was incredible. You had players in that context. You basically while the girly nuts going to touch on that had to be the the biggest shock of the day. And now we know why he was a little bit injured at some point during the game. You know, a lot of comments have been made in terms of the NFL creating rules to make offense more palatable in defense much more difficult than we're seeing more and more high scoring games. What happens to finish football when defenses things? Teams has been dropping in value for over a decade now, and it's to the point to where they really there behind kickers. It's probably the least valuable vision. It wasn't always that way. You can still have good defenses facing offenses, but in general, the physicians just dropping off and what this year has done. They'll come into the this year. We had our ESPN fantasy sent a we all group pretty much agreed or a ranking for whoever may what after the draft. We agreed basically that quarterback was no revived position that you should wait on quarterback. I think the way quarterbacks have played this year is going to change it next year to where we're all going to say, hey, been make sure you're drafting one of these top quarterback. So you speaking about twenty points a game on the quarterback anymore. Twenty twenty game the great day by fifteen points game back. Now, you have to have a minimum twenty points a quarterback keep up. All right. Let's take some of these phone calls. Eight seven seven seven ten ESPN. If you have a question for Casey Joyner, the football scientists let's start. In San dem- with the beer, scientists the beer scientists and the football scientists on an Wednesday morning. What's going on guys? First of all gotta give shout out or hey in the back. A while. I was on hold. He told me fired up for the new season of narcos because it's in Mexico. Me a joke. Green paternal. Question coming. Dallas. He's a fan favorite wicker yell at the end that is. He I don't know if there's actually a question. Let's go for another one. Let's go with Alex, Alex, you're on with Casey Joyner the football side. Good morning. Alex. NPR Lee who should I go at Duke Johnson or McGuire? Thanks. Tough one NPR league. I'm probably probably I'm going to do because I like the match up a little bit better. And he's imposing fantastic numbers of late eighty for a few weeks there. I couldn't even rank them in the top fifty rankings in ESPN dot com. But now he kind of be a top thirty back at how. Well, he's produced and again at a p PR league Maguire, but do you almost receive it for that offense? Whereas McGuire sort of just a you has as necessary bags. I'm going to do. Casey her joining us here on a Wednesday getting ready for your fantasy football lineup this week. Let's try one from Twitter. This is from Ocho Ocho, Casey. And he's got a question. He says he needs to start two of the following Tate amendola or Anthony Miller. Amendola orienting Gaffney going Miller. He's been a Goto player in the offense. He becoming a vertical threaten them out. And I know he might face area sleigh, but they can move from around they've gotten they go to the Atlanta to worry about on Robinson too. So I'm going military between them. Eagles Gordon says he can't figure out what to do a Tate. He says I don't know how to any agreement about this a lot of passes to. But there are a lot of thinking Dunkin nothing vertical at all. And only gets at least many targets. I'm going dole on that. One trying to the phone call hacienda heights this time and Kevin Kevin you're on with Casey Joyner. Good morning. Good morning guys p p r Jarvis Landry or Ellen Robinson. It's tougher on Landry. Because our Tate's tough makes a decision that because Landry hasn't doing anything. Vertically vertical numbers are just an atrocious. But when seeing many targets seeing it does make it a lot easier. I his matchup is not as corner batch of not that tough this week. So like that out of him Robertson, probably has a tougher matchup when choosing a dunk receiver in vertical receiver and thinking the Allen Robinson might see quarterback name never Moffitt in coverage or Sean shed people around. I liked those matchups a lot better form. And he's got Robinson. Go Robinson right there. Let's go to the valley and van Nuys in Rene Rene, you're on with Casey Joyner. Hey, Casey, thanks for the help. BP are on need a play from wide receiver this week. It's courtroom Sutton or Trey snap. Trey Kwon Kwon was on the injury report. He did not practice if today, and if he it really depends if he's on the report, and he's not gonna go or if there's a question Mark of as any athlete, go a something, but Smithers vertically inclined to he's been and as as challenged as Atlanta defensive into stopping this year. I'm always gonna take vertigo see row Sutton, by the way, article Fiennes fantasy section. They covers best and worst blocking match of speak. Just got posted today and the bonkers have by far the worst blocking matchups I think something's going to have some problems seeing pass because in case kimes going to be a passage pressure all day. This is from Twitter. Good friend, the we scar. Sear Louis Louis carseat, keep Watson or do. I try and go from our Jackson if he starts. Large action. The Baltimore's run blocking with superb this week vote about that for my Monday article looking at the week eleven o'clock matchups talked about how Jackson did well because of that emit gut that where it's anybody's in the league where he has not been picked up take him up right now. Because this guy is he outplayed outs count by a mile. And I think they're gonna making keep giving him fifteen twenty carries a game. So Jackson, if I'm going Jackson Watson, I know Watson Canada on the ball in Jacksonville. Jackson. I don't know. He can pass the football. I haven't seen. He can do that yet. He did not like pass rush pressure in college. Oklahoma's no pass rush pressure album, still leery up and because of that I'd still go. Let's try these last couple of phone calls here. Let's go to Montebello in Vincent, Vincent. You're on with football. Scientists Casey Joyner. Hey. He. Or? Acura's not been doing quite as well of late an era Zona I've trouble waiting their run defense. Because when you look at the advanced run metric, they wait out pretty well. And we look at their fantasy point to give up. They don't nearly as well. But the paint point till is finally starting to catch up with events run metrics. So don't like the match up as much for him. I'd probably go entering that one p p r league sweet potato pie pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving. Nisa scientist to pumpkin pies in the freezer for tomorrow. So I have to what she wrote it on that one. With Elsie on this last smoke, all your Glendora and you're on with Casey Joyner. Going. I have question. Lindsay for George Kittle with Fortinet Connor job on the bench trade. The end and kindle and for net for who he bounced Casey. I yeah, I didn't hear what he said. So very Sanders. I like that a lack of top three tight end right now, you can look at a number of different metrics and Ericsson calc- the only players outscoring position. So and Lindsay, I'm if he on him because Denver's won balking is in pretty bad of latest going to catch up on Venturi. Quick question for you, Yvonne, Manny has five touchdowns five hundred yards past two gains. Have you seen people picking him up? Again. I don't know why they're not. I don't think they are picking him up Philadelphia's secondary they're down Sony again. They're they're down three Cornerbacks Shakti you play. And if you want to she was shut your facing forced to sixteen Cornerbacks. And you've got a backup safety to face. If I'm gonna to quarterback league, I want my number two quarterback in a lot of those leagues because twenty plus points potential there Casey Joyner the football on Twitter at Casey Joyner, T F S, and as I mention each week. Sometimes he will continue to answer your questions later on in the day joins us every week before the football starts. Get you ready for your fantasy football lineup. Casey.
