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

When did the NBA become a 365-day sport?
"View what's going on with the NBA right now it's it's become as the NFL has been for a long time a three hundred sixty five days a year league when did that transition take place you think when did it when was the tipping point I think the two thousand ten free agency a lebron James and Chris bosh going to Miami that started to change it and that started to change free agency it started to change the interest that France had and I think it really started to change the way the teams our approach free agency and the way that organizations approach team building and the the kind of deals that were being done not just in free agency but you know that things like teams who would use their salary cap space to take on contracts with the graphics and the the strategy that went into it you know has become this you know you cover that all in a way the way that you're covering teams in on the court during the year and so you know so much of the league has been around what's coming you know it's almost like college recruiting right people hear more about who their schools going to get than the people they have they're playing form now the NBA's become that and then also shore contract when the league change the collective bargaining agreement shortened the length of deals used to have players who could be and number your main o'neill had a seven year deal and you guys would get six your deals and now you know you see star players who are cycling in and out of free agency more quickly of because they're doing shorter deals we had over forty percent of the league in free agency this year and that's going to be consistent number going forward all the deals are wanted to your deal for the most part many of and and then there's opt outs in deal so there's a constant cycling in July of it and and so that his just change it but I do believe I don't think there's any question is started with Riley putting that Miami came together so I guess recently last few weeks we've been hearing kind of a backlash to the way things are now gone in the NBA and the power of the players there's a backlash to that in the way that the shift the balance of power is now so complete from the teams to the individual stars themselves they're people pushing back against that I think Adam silver's said they've got a look at the way that free agencies handle that what what was gonna happen there I think the most first of all you're there there's two issues of people talk about the tampering issue I think there's two very distinct issues I think most teams agents players I think there's an acceptance that when a guy is going to be a free agent his season ends let's say a player gets a limited plan in April or may and he's going to be a free agent that is a lie that they were going to be conversations taking place I don't think it bothers anybody the rules say it can't happen till June thirtieth at six PM to share what I think people have a problem with I think what is really problematic but Lee is when there are players under contract who have all school year left on their deal two four years like Anthony Davis had two four years Paul George had two four years back in Indiana why Leonard had two years left in San Antonio and when there's a sense that teams is one GM said to me the difference between tampering an interference don't interfere in nineteen and what's going on is your inner debt there's interference going on in the middle of people seasons with their team often by one team or more than one team and it's been directed by the agent and that's not new in this league this is been going on I think that the issue more to be addressed then what's the time line one we can start the free agency talk some players who are are in the free and clear at the end of their season I think that will be addressed I think the league wants to address that and maybe create something that is more functional actually the reality of what goes on but the bigger issue to me is with players with multiple years left on their deal who are being you know hold or pushed or encourage for the outside to find a way out of that place I think that's the real problem not not that there's deals not that there's free agent deal done before
Miami's $171 Million Question: Should the Heat Trade for Russell Westbrook?
"Solar russell westbrook whom we thought would play in oklahoma city forever as recently as last week but it doesn't look like it'd be everybody ended this week reports indicate the thunder in westbrook instead of finding him a new home in both would prefer to make a move sooner than later corner adrian motion arteta's mutual interest between westbrook in the miami heat pablo what do you think of russ head south beach play with jimmy butler why not this is a phase of this off season we're in now when you live at the club that come up and people are looking around and thinking who cannot go home with an why not why not if you're the miami heat bowl when he went he went in on your team as constituted jimmy butler jimmy butler is there to help you win pat riley we know wants to win russell westbrook is eight terrible contract but why not if you wanna win well the why not answer would be if you look at the numbers numbers for the thunder last year with paul george on the floor without russell westbrook they were in net positive with russell westbrook on the floor and not paul george they were a net negative spirit russell westbrook big thing that worries me down to sixty five percent free throw shooter after being in the mid eighties for the majority of his career that being said forget about trying to win a championship how about relevant relevant indian b i is harder achieved in have you ever been before because so many teams happened to be stacking up here 'cause you get russell westbrook and jimmy butler on the same team none of us think that's good enough to win the east but it is at least enough to pay attention to you let's be real surpri left miami five years ago where you pay no attention to in sent you as much as ryan cortez and are corner over here is shaking his fist very angrily on behalf of miami entertainment is also useful if you're a basketball team end as much as i do share all the concerns you express russell westbrook being older than at three point percentage russell westbrook declining as a shooter russell westbrook body by the way just generally seemed to be eroding year after year all that's true at that price terrify but i'm not necessarily you know objecting to the fact that it'll be really fun to walk well i mean it'll be fun to watch i'll be curious to see how it goes you know young do is playing around god bless hard to the last one coming up on the sprint russia jimmy butler out there like if nothing else they are personality fits for pat riley pat riley wants to do their the goal horse sort of do that exemplify with his program is those were to do that he'd never gonna complain about how hard practices dark or anything else the other reason they'll just works in miami at pat riley has a new version of traditional notions of rebuilding this idea they were gonna tear this down and be terrible and then get going back no his thing is always i'm gonna put us in a position and i got the city and sales were visually gonna get somebody to come in but again last five years they have not really been able to get anybody the sign up as they expected they had the tragedy of chris bosh and his health and everything else but if you are a first rebuilding you bring in a guy like russell westbrook it it just so happens though it might set you back for a long time it might set them back but i think this is also eight brass tacks question when you look at the list of players who you can go get to become relevant to become competitive it's not a a lot of guys out there right there's a lot of guys out there who would want to necessarily fit alongside jimmy butler in that way but number two who you're gonna require like this is a this is a very magical circumstance of a guy
Kyrie Irving's Free-Agency Countdown Officially Begins Now
"Is what happens with Kyrie Irving because Kyrie Irving is now in a situation where he's going to become a free agent at the end of the season. And he's head is worse stretch of playoff basketball in his career over the last three games. The guy has literally missed forty three shots in three games. Forty three shots Janta Toco is averaging nearly thirty one points per game in this series. And Kyrie Irving is averaging twenty one and you're saying, well, yeah. Yeah. This is the better player, but Kyrie Irving is supposed to be the alpha male the Celtics team he's supposed to be the star. And he's averaging ten less points per game than the guy on the other side is and after the game when he's asked about he's shooting struggles, he said who cares? That's what kyri ever said. Who cares? We'll tell you. Everybody cares. Right everybody. That's rooting for the Boston Celtics. Everybody on your team cares. Because if you don't perform at a high level they have no opportunity to win the game. He said after he shot eight for twenty two from the field on Friday night that he didn't expect another eight for twenty two performance. He followed that up on Monday with a seven of twenty two performance after game three he called himself, a basketball genius a basketball genius. That just so happened to miss how many shots v. Fifteen in the last game. He played them. But Cairo is telling us all that. He is a basketball genius. And for all the things that have happened this year with Kyrie Irving and the Celtics organization he's called out his teammates multiple times. He said the young guys aren't ready to win a championship yet. And to that I would say kyri you're not exactly ready to championship as the alpha dog yet. You could do it when you're playing side kicked. Lebron James, right? It's like those motorcycles with little sidecars. Kyrie was in the sidecar. You can do it as the guy in the sidecar. But you can't do it as the guy actually driving the motorcycle, right? Yeah. I'm able to prove that you haven't done that yet. So kyri you have not proven. You can win a championship yet as the main guy. Okay. So all the rumors all season long were about New York because kyri Irving originally said that he wants to stay with the Boston Celtics as long as the organization would have him. He did a commercial with his father where he said, I want my jersey retired in the rafters here in Boston. Right. So he said all that stuff. And then when he plays the game at Madison. Square garden. He says asked me about my free agency on July first, he also referred to the New York Knicks as a great organization, he's the first person ever to refer to the Knicks as a great organization, they have one of the worst odors and professional sports in James Dolan. But it appears that Kyrie Irving could be interested in going to the Knicks, and they are the favourite to land Kyrie Irving in free agency. So say, hypothetically, he decides to go if he follows Kevin Durant again, it would be something that is a masculine for Kyrie Irving because their whole reason he wanted out of Cleveland is he wanted his own team. Right. And he basically got the best situation to get his own team. He had to number three picks, Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. He had out Horford. Who's a great player? The guy's a great defender. Great shooter does everything for you. Great passer at the big man position. So you had a great roster around you, and you were unable to take advantage of that as the guy. So maybe Cairo Irving is learning. What were you all are finding? Out is Kyrie Irving just isn't a main guy. And if he does go to New York, and he does go there to play with his good, buddy. Kevin durant? What would that be saying? He would actually be admitting. What we've all been asking about. Kyrie Irving is can you actually carry a team because if you go there to play with Kevin Durant? Sorry kyri. Kevin durant? The best player on the team. That's pretty damn obvious. So you'd be going there to be Kevin Durant sidekick you'd be getting back in that little small seat in the motorcycle alongside Kevin Durant. Just like you were doing with the Brian James. So you'd actually be admitting that you were wrong about yourself. You were wrong that you could carry a team to a high level to an NBA championship caliber level. You'd actually be admitting that but moving forward with this thing say hypothetically that they get Kevin Durant and Kyrie goes to play with his friend because he can't carry his own team. He goes there. Then the question becomes if the Knicks are able to win the draft lottery. Would they be willing to go all in and make another big move? Because what the Knicks could do which is amazing to me to even fathom this. The Knicks have been one of the worst run organizations in sports they've given out bad contract after bad contract. James Dolan has been a mess off the court the issues, which is Oakley. It goes on and on right? There's been so many issues with the New York Knicks. Okay. This team that was so dumb. Carmelo Anthony only wanted to play for the New York Knicks. He was in the final Ervin's contract. And you got it your roster to trade for Carmelo Anthony when he would have signed with you in the off season. Anyway. Okay. This is that same organization this organization could in a couple of months land to stars in Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. Just because they're located in New York and just because they play in Madison Square Garden. It's kind of like the Dallas Cowboys like players want to play for him. Not that it's bringing them any high level of success. But because of the Dallas Cowboys, right? The Knicks are kind of that team like just because it's the Knicks and its New York, and it's Madison Square Garden, apparently people go there and with Kevin Durant is. It's this whole situation of well. I'm never going to get the credit. I properly deserve in Golden State, or at least. I'm never going to get the credit. I think I deserve. So if I go to New York, and if I carry a team there, maybe I will win back the fans that left me saying it was a cowardly moved to go to Golden State. So you have two guys at grumpy, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Then the question becomes if you win this lottery. Are you going after Anthony Davis do because that's the next good legitimately? Do. That would be the best piece that anybody anybody in the league could offer the New Orleans pelicans, the number one pick in the draft, which would mean, essentially the rights design Williamson. Okay. So you could have that if you're the New Orleans pelicans. That's why they made the right move the whole time I've been trying to say this by taking the Lakers deal because now Philadelphia maybe they become involved. They put Ben Simmons in this thing. We know the Celtics could offer Jason Tatum. Jalen brown. If say, hypothetically that they think that Kyrie irvings gonna stay. So there's that package out there. The Lakers packages still. There. There will be mystery teams that come around in this thing and Zion. Williamson out of all the stuff that people could offer. He would be the most attractive piece that anybody could offer. So the Knicks out of pure ineptitude. The Knicks pure incompetence could actually have the best trading piece to pick up a third superstar to pair hypothetically with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. They've been so bad that somehow this could result in them this summer landing Kevin Durant's, kyri Irving. Anthony davis. Because of the fact they've been so bad like Kevin Durant going to New York. It's not like he's going to a winner. Right. That's part of the reason he can leave golden safe for New York is essentially what he's saying is. Yeah, I'm going to place. It hasn't won since Phil Jackson was a player ongoing place. That's desperate for a winter. Like he can actually sell going to New York because it hasn't wanted a high level the franchise he can actually sell that. That's a selling piece for him to go to New York to win fans back, and you know, the Kevin Durant. The second he signs on the dotted line or the second. He releases something whatever like the player's Tribune. Or something the second. He does that. He is a hero in New York. He's a hero in New York. Okay. And it's all because of this organization's incompetence they've been so bad that Kevin ranker justify going there. They were so bad this year that they could have the number one pick in the draft which they could either use on Williamson who's the best prospect since Anthony Davis or they could use. I n Williams to trade four Anthony. Davis depending on what kyri Irving and what? Kevin Durant could hypothetically what could hypothetically want. Now, if I was New Orleans that would be the easiest trait of my life. Okay. So Anthony doesn't wanna player he has an opt-out after this year. He's going to be a free agent next summer. You're telling me that you're gonna give me Zion. Williamson I could get Zion. Williamson who is the best prospect since this guy Davis that we Drake that we drafted years ago. Okay. Yes. Sign me up for that one. But man, I got to tell you this. And I understand that the Knicks. There's not really a reason to hate them because they haven't been good in a while. But would kyri Irving and Kevin Durant pairing be like the most unlikable pairing in the NBA? This would be worse than the Dwayne Wade. Chris Bosh, LeBron James pairing, right or the trio if you will because that was the reason people hated that trio wasn't because Dwayne Wade was dislike -able it wasn't. Because Chris Bosh was dislike it was. Because of the fact of how they did it, right? Lebron did the whole decision thing. And then they had that. Press conference where they came like out of the ground. And the bronze said not one not two not three that championship thing. Right. So that's why that team became dislike -able, but this team in New York would be dislike -able because of the guys. Right. They hate the media. They go after everybody they seem like they feel like they're victims. Right. We've seen with Kevin Durant time after time where he thinks that he's a victim. Same thing with Kyra. Kyrie Irving thinks he's a victim like Cairo serving. Also, there's no accountability. Kyrie Irving the guys not accountable for anything the other night when he misses twenty two shots. He said I wish I took thirty the guys not accountable. He talks about the shooting woes. He says, I'm not worried. There's no accounting. There's no I haven't played well in this series. I have to play better on the reason. We're losing I have to be better on the leader of this. There's none of that. There's no accountability whatsoever. When his team is struggling during the regular season. What does he say the young guys don't know what it takes to win a championship? So there's no accountability with Cairo Irving, everything that happens to Cairo Irving. That goes against his legacy that works in a negative manner. He tries to spin it in a way that it's the media's fault. He blamed the media for the Celtics locker room issues. He said the media tries to rip apart locker rooms kyri. You're the guy that's called out the young guys. You're the guy that got in the coaches face after he called the play for somebody else. You're the guy that yelled at Gordon Hayward on the court for passing Jason Tatum. When he was wide open at the end of the game against the magic this year. When Tatum was trying to win the game. You're the guy that did all that. You're the guy that has had a bad effect on the locker room. You're the guy that said you can't wait around for Jalen Brown. You're the guy that did all this. And he had the DASS ity to blame the media to blame the media for trying to destroy his locker room when he was doing all that stuff internally. He had the gumption to say something along those lines. And also you factor in remember when hiree Irving and Kevin Durant were at the all star game. And there was that video that emerged where it looked like Kyrie was saying to max lots and then Kyrie Irving when in. Hey reporter, I should say here in Boston. The Boston Herald Stevo pet gave him the opportunity. He said, hey, you wanna kinda pour water on that? Because that video had leaked out. There any said that you guys just do this for the likes and clicks. And this guy Steve pet that didn't tweet video didn't even write about the video and was just asking Cairo to comment on it in Cairo Irving said you guys just do this for the likes in clicks. He said, do you think this is what the fans care about this exactly what the fans care about? If you're gonna leave the fans actually really do care about that. That's why Kevin Durant free agency and your free agency. And Anthony Davis is trade destination. Those have been like the hottest topics in the NBA season. So Mike God that team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who had faked Twitter accounts. So he could go after fans fans that were criticizing him for leaving for Golden State two years later, he was still upset about that to the point where he put on Twitter that it's because it was Russ and nobody else around like that's why he left it. He'd. Didn't have enough around him to win a championship. He felt the need to defend himself on Twitter to just the random person that was tweeting at him. He made up a fake burner Twitter account. So that he could attack fans. Okay. Those two guys would be teaming up and possibly they team up with Anthony Davis who used to be likable. But now Anthony Davis says on LeBron show the shop that he couldn't believe after he asked for a trade that the fans booed him. He's like I poured seven eight years in there. And I go out there. And they me Anthony you ask the organization for a trade.
Vegas bullish on Knicks' summer, '20 title odds
"You go to ask because the NBA playoffs are going on. And of course, always so much interest. Not only in the actual games. But what goes on off the floor in the off season, which is coming up. This summer Vegas seems pretty high on the Knicks chances of landings from free agents. Because is this. The Knicks have opened at sixteen to one to win the twenty twenty championship. Well, it's a classic case of Fulbe wants save on the. Twice on me. You know, it's it goes back to two thousand eleven when we hadn't seen this kind of free agent movement. Like, we do now LeBron summer two thousand ten Chris Bosh and Wade in Miami. And the books were hung out the dry ridiculous. So now that we've seen it. And we saw to rank goes boyer's oddsmakers are not going to be caught off guard again, they know better, and it's important to realize the futures market or the long shot odds they are one way betting, which means you can just bet twelve to one sixteen to one whatever it is. It's not like a point spread we can both sides minus three plus three now. So if you're only putting up a one way bet, but you can't bet Knicks not win the title, you're gonna air on the side of caution. Now, these sports do to make it fair to give some decent value. But with all that being said there in the business of making money so knowing that it's not too bad. They're gonna put up lower odds in Durant doesn't sign or they don't get to stars then they'll adjust accordingly, but it's fun for tea or betters players take a shot and make some wagers create interest. But they're not going to be held liable. They're reading the same. You know, wards Twitter that we are and everyone they're not dumb. I don't know. Doug. I mean, you get kyri you get Kevin Durant and Zion. Williamson. We know he's going to be a Nick. I think those odds are actually not I think they're good. I think it's actually a good bet to take at this point because they're so going to be shoe
Heat retire Chris Bosh's No. 1 jersey in emotional ceremony
"And speaking of LeBron James because you know, how we do here. His former team Chris Bosh had his jersey retired down in Miami had a chance to be celebrated had a chance to have his jersey Goto, the raptors I think that guy's going to be in the Basketball Hall of fame when it's all said and done Parviz, retirement, speech included, thanking Pat Riley and making a joke about one of his former teammates a lot of people don't know this. But Pat, I met me when I was a scrawny nineteen year old kid fresh out of Hudson sexes. And unfortunately for him he had the fifth pick. And I went in four. So we had to settle for this kid named d way. I gotta tell you, man. Sorry about this jersey retirement thing, I had to beat you at something, dude. I'm gonna just keep Chris BAAs keeping joking. And you know, what Chris box was had the perfect temperament for what Miami needed to have happened the years that he LeBron James and Dwayne way were together. It could not have been easy for a guy who was the manager. Ron oh, but he knew he was getting into. And if he didn't know he didn't complain about it didn't mince words about he said, hey, it's not easy doing this. But I'm willing to do this. If it means I can win a championship be part of a championship team. He doesn't have to worry about people. Call them two and a half minutes and a half superstar played in Miami. Play knew exactly how important Chris Bosh was to the success of Miami Heat as long as he knows that and people that no no that that's all he needs. He didn't need to worry about deserving credit. He got more than enough to the satisfaction of Chris Bosh what he did for. And with the Miami

"And and when you look at the great defensive bigs that we have right now. Whether it's go bear cappella our Horford, Draymond green. If you wanna call him a big, that's the hallmark is that they can switch out there. But then they also can get back in and take care of business. All right, guys. This question needs to be asked today. Better. He career Zoar Bosh. Ooh. Doesn't need to be accident. But okay. Wow. That's well, it was just as good us tomorrow. I'm to answer that's actually yesterday or he he could ask it yesterday. Because he wasn't here. That's true. Yeah. Wow. I mean, when you think of Zoe you think of defense, I I wasn't either defensive player of the year one year and and top three a couple of times. But Bosh is maybe more balanced. It may be better on both ends. It's man not on the I think they're comparable on the defensive end. But on the offense of end Bosh gave you more is that fair, or no, I think it's weird because Zo was the centerpiece of those Miami teams early on right? Tim Hardaway hit a lot of big shots. But it was built around Alonzo Mourning whereas Boston have that as we start where he didn't have that luxury when he was supposed to have it, you know, health betrayed it from one season made a an all star game, and then sort of feeling something in his calf during that skills competition on there. I think you take everything that they have they answers, blocks assists. The acids toss it in a big soup mix it up what comes out to rings two rings to rain soup. Chris apparently thinks the answer is brush. Yes. Answers bosh. Well, ZOA certainly more intimidating. So was whatever the opposite of soft is that that was oh, you know, when you think of a menacing on the court demeanor. You start was oh in my mind. Yeah. And menacing on-court meaner is not really something that ever really associated with Chris Bosh, even though probably the best roar in the game. Yes. When he got fired up and he had a flexing ice apps with the mouthpiece. His mouth gets so big. Maybe he would unhinge his job mouth would go agape. There really was no better start to team relationship than Bosch. When he was with the raptors. 'cause he kind of looks like a raptor. Yeah. There was that. Joe? Flacco looked like the raven on the helmet. Yeah. Bosch looking like the raptor. And Joe flacco, I think are are the two that win that game for me personally. This is getting to the point where reliving these the big three years when LeBron was down here specifically, this feels super nostalgic. And if making me sad, it feels long ago. I mean, LeBron that was to uniforms ago for LeBron boss says he's over it now. And he's at peace and all that. But as we're talking right now, I'm like, oh, no man because I'm not at peace of the how can he be at peace with it? I mean, what option does he have like the go crazy? Right. So he's decided to take the I don't know if you can decide to not go crazy. I think when you go crazy you don't have control over that. It's not like think I've will pass on going crazy today. They don't think it works like that. I mean, he's probably I'm being reckless here. He's probably talked to people if he's going through issues, he's probably sat down and talked with people. And you know, he's probably just in a better place, mentally, how do you how if you like is none of us are psych professionals? But like how would you counsel? Someone this other like that. I don't know, man. This is only a recent development for Chris Bosh because as recently as I think the summer we were still hearing whispers of attempted comeback. Rop linka was his former age and Los Angeles was always something that was rumored. I don't know if something was ongoing with his medical history..

And here's here's what I'm gonna say ROY Hibbert had more impactful games against the Miami Heat them, Tim Duncan there. I said well there I said it I mean, he was he was more feared during that period. That one shooting star of fear during those games where we're you were you were confronted with something that was making LeBron do baby hooks in and we're like what is this this? This is a great source of shame. But you're actually dead on here. What do you think about Tim Duncan in those heat series? Pop didn't put him in. And that's why Bosch got rebound. Even though Bosh would've absolu-. Lutely soared through the sky and gotten that renewed for Bunning any miss the bunny. Those are the Tim Duncan NBA finals moments against the Miami, Heat ROY Hibbert far more impactful there. I said it you're right, Dan. Mean your rebuttal? Speechless.

"They were wherever it was live or wherever it is that Mr. Chow, and he celebrated the entire night, and he was driving in just sort of oblivious to what the the national blowback was of the super team that was forming. He thought it was all a good thing. And after the celebration that they didn't even really have a hand in planning at all they didn't know what was happening until an hour before which is weird because like they were giving. Tickets away for the this thing, but they had no idea they were just putting pen to paper sign in these contracts. They go out there. Chris Bosh, absolutely loves it. And then he thinks oh, man, we're the most popular team in the NBA, and it's the exact opposite. And it sort of smacked him in the face, a great was that though just that idea that that they thought that they were going to be celebrated in he wanted so great talking about that night and just like they're in their uniforms. They're signing their contracts. They don't know. What's happening? Exactly. And next thing they know hydraulics, and and Bosch was laughing because LeBron and Dwayne tried to play it cool turning around. But all three of them just sort of got hit with a force field of this Miami perfumed arrogance hit him in the face. And so they couldn't smell that the rest of America was urinating on. Yeah. It was only until after that he saw people burning LeBron's jersey. And he was like, well, we we might have a problem here. So he was incredibly honest in this part. One part two's coming your way next week. But part one. Covers a year. One San Antonio stuff. The night of the decision, and we get into what this jersey retirement today means to Chris Bosh. It's a it's I'm so happy as a Miami Heat fan that the Miami Heat have repaired this relationship considering the salary caps. Well, maybe forty and slip considering the salary crap that the Miami Heat are dealing with right now. All Pat Riley, really has his rebuilding this reputation that the Miami Heat had a first class and always being in the conversation. They haven't been in the rooms lately haven't been seriously considered by these free agents. So getting back in the good graces of guys like Chris Bosh? I think goes a long way I thought something else that was interesting in the south beach session, Mike you remember before Boston you remember? How scared you were just how scared you were before.

"Yeah. Hello. This is Dan lebatardshow. And the guy we're talking to today is one of my favorites ever covering him in sports because he was so honest accessible and during the big three era. Everything was going crazy around him. He was always somebody that reporters could go to and he would give them honest insight. So I've always enjoyed talking to them. I always thank him after talking to them for being so professional his career was cut short in a really, unexpected fashion. Chris Bosh with us for this episode of south beach sessions. He super interesting. Let's get started. Chris you've been an unusual athlete throughout your life. You've been willing publicly to be vulnerable. You have been unusually accessible over the course of your career. I want to sort of help people understand the person that I've gotten to know a little bit. How it is. You became who you became. Yes. So what what did your upbringing look like what it? What are the details? The audience would need to know to sort of understand how Chris Bosh grew. How bag like in? Where I grew up. I grew up in a small town called Hutchins, Texas. It's the next city south of Dallas right there on forty fives. If you've ever been to Dallas and driven to Houston, you've driven to my hometown. And we were kind of excluded a little bit because you know, the part of town we lived in. My grandfather owned a lot of properties, and my grandmother she lived next door to so he owned both houses before pass passed him down. And that's pretty much. What we grew up with my grandmother living. Door. So we had a very huge sense of family and Dallas was right there. So we would drive, and you know, I've spent a tremendous amount of time a recreation centers used to go to Tommy amount in a recreation center, Dallas Texas Highland hills..
A look at the NBA All Star Game
"I did watch some of the all star game tonight, the NBA I did think it was cool to see LeBron James and Dwayne Wade on the court together for the last time. I try to figure out what combination. I let me say this about the all star game real quick. The fact that this was televised. We I love that it's not east versus west anymore. I love it. I love the new format. NBA all star game is adapting in a positive way. NFL all star game is not adapting at all. I'm not interested in seeing saquon Barkley, and Ezekiel Elliott rush the passer those guys are running backs. I don't have any interest in that ideal have interest. However and seeing LeBron James select his former teammate, and Kyrie Irving a guy who has possibly expressed interest in going back and playing with LeBron James who really knows a guy in LeBron James. I do see I do have interest in seeing LeBron James pick Anthony Davis. Played five minutes today. I'm surprised you play. Got New Orleans. Can't be happy. I I just don't understand it five minutes. Still all an injury. Takes is a second to second one play guy. Played five minutes didn't really understand that one. But that's okay. Anthony Davis played with James, I found it very entertaining. Seeing. See seeing and being selected and then as Janas asking on live TV is that tampering. Is that tampering? You were asked. Lebron James if you wanted to play with Anthony Davis is that tampering and that was fun. It was fun. Just going back and forth. This election show is fine. The teams were fund the trade right in the middle of the trade deadline, and the NBA trade was fine. I thought the everything to do with all star weekend. I thought it was a pretty much a big success Steph curry in the three point contest, Joe Harris, a an underdog winning the three point contest beating the heavy stuff. Was the heavy favorite guy everybody if you would've told me Joe Harrison Steph curry are going to be the final two hundred all star game for three point contest who to pick to win. There's no doubt picking Steph curry and the other guy want I thought that was cool the heavy underdog on the dunk contest. One and Hamadu Diyala jumping over Shaquille O'Neal. I thought it was overall an entertaining weekend. Lebron James Dwayne Wade it just brought back memories for me. Like seeing those guys. We had an alleyoop off of the off the glass go that was kind of cool, and it probably back to this thought when it comes to the NBA that was really the first super team that worked and Jacob correct me if I'm wrong when I think about, you know, super teams that's such obviously a prevalent term in the NBA right now. But if you go back, I mean, it was obviously very arrogantly put together specifically with the LeBron James not one not two not three not four not five. But I don't know if he said five, but that super team was the original super team. It was the original big three with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade. And that was kinda cool to just kind of have those memories. And now everybody is trying to emulate that the NBA is all about not having just one superstar not having just two superstars. But having three superstars four superstars. And LeBron James and Dwayne Wade started. Okay. Let's not forget that that is kind

Time with the Oscars coming up seeking check that Atkin chicken a new episode of winging you can check out the ringer MBA show. And the flat circle are true detective show, which is on YouTube Twitter and then running on the recap Ables feed. And we have some good stuff in the works across the board for everything we're doing here coming up. Chris Bosh future hall of Famer great time for him to come in. Because I I've been bummed out about this Anthony Davis situation and just where the NBA is going with with players jumping teams left, and right, and nobody seems to be happy, and we have this unbelievable product on the court, and yet all the other stuff is just taken a life of its own to appoint like, where's this going? So who better to ask than Chris Bosh who was read their the front door the player impairment decade, and and kind of solve a Bassem until what has become he has some great thoughts on this. We're gonna get. It to them right now. I are friends from project. I we're taping. This Monday morning Pacific time. All-star weekend is coming the player in playroom decade is in full bloom. One of the people who started at Chris Bosh is here this out of control. Now is anyone happy? What's going on? You know? I don't know, man. That's that's an interesting question. I don't know if anybody's happy, I think, it's it's gotten so point where you know, in realizing the power of athlete in that athlete kind of becoming aware of that is still young guys making decisions. And sometimes even if so the Anthony Davis thing, even if he doesn't. Want to be there? It's a way you go about it. It just backfired and right? You can do that. But now it's going to be this new world where you know, we're talking about other things like these these decisions backfiring a little bit at what point does it undermine the concept of team? That's the part I'm fine with player empowerment, I love that. Everybody's making money. The encore product is as good as it's been in the last twenty five years, and yet it just feels like it's turning into pick up where it's like everybody's on the court and say, I I'm gonna run with him now, and you run with him and knew it all when I was in high school growing up in the air. You think this is pretty much a generation? Yeah. And I was heavy into it, of course, growing up. But that's how some guys play. Some guys. And and, you know, remember distinctly many dues would play for a team in California and live in Michigan play for a team in Texas, but live in Florida. Yeah. You know? So it's always kind of been there, you know, in the relying tones of of basketball development. So I think that's kind of where it comes from. 'cause usually guys just yeah. They just make an all star team in this year's in DC. And we're going to you know, this DC team is going to be the best in the world. And then after that, you know, they're not even playing together. If it's to me what we're losing hair is basketball to me is designed not to keep everybody. Happy. It's hard to be team. There's a winner loser. Especially you're in thirty team league. Twenty nine teams are going to be sad at the end of the season for sure, and you know, it was interesting right before LeBron of Miami in two thousand fourteen when she were intimately involved with Riley had that press conference..

"To the team is great. It's fun. But then the season stars. And then you're going to struggle. You're going to go up and downs. Now, they're just extreme Caskey one last thing, and for those who don't know Chris used to come up to Bristol and host Mike and Mike with many times, I've known you for many years, but I've not had a chance to talk to you since the health situation that cause your career to end well before it otherwise should have. And we had a conversation this morning by Bill Belichick. What what would what makes him continue to go out after he has climbed all of these mountains, Nick Sabin? All those guys you unfortunately, your career cut short. Well before it other. I should have been. So how do you scratch the now people look for ways to find that competitiveness was talking about some of these coaches would be on the sideline until they absolutely have to dragged off. How have you done that? Have you fill that void in your life? Don't fill the void one. I think that's helped me quite a bit basketball was tremendous honor and opportunity to represent my family in the NBA college and school for years and years that can never be replaced. I'm not going to try to go out in the real world and fine things to kind of satisfy that competitive issue now sometimes guy and wanna play or we could go to the pop side. And, you know, get it going and break a sweat. But it's really about finding another thing finding other passions finding other things, and you know, following your your heart intuition, and we were teammates Toronto. And the one thing are mired about Chris is and it goes to your question to me. It seemed like basketball is what you did it. Nisei defined who you were. And I think that probably is what allows him to still have a big smile on his face and still enjoyed things that came with basketball. You think it's harder for these young kids now that basically only have basketball that are leaving school after one year some eventually gonna be leaving right outta high school. Where are they going to be in the same stage of their lives? What think yes? But I think it's a tremendous opportunity with the advances in technology. You can find those other things while you're still playing because I don't expect like usually you hear guys say, well, you got to find that next career when it's time. I don't expect anybody to do that. But I do expect you to have hobbies and have things to kind of lean on to occupy your time. When when you get more of his Chris Bosh can follow him at Chris Bosh, all over social media. I'll tell you this is sincerely hope it'll be the first and not the last time you make your way here anytime here in town, please combined Chris Bosh everybody fantastic. Thank you. Very much for coming by by the way. No. The reminder NBA doubleheader is tonight starts Milwaukee.

NBA, Depression and Rosen discussed on The Undefeated
"PIN senior writer, Jackie MacMullan sat down with several NBA players to talk about mental health in the NBA, Chris, Bosh, Kevin love tomorrow, Rosen, and Paul Pierce to name just a few have opened up about their struggles with depression and anxiety then be has now hired Dr William Param as its first director of mental health and wellness. Should this prompt the NBA to have some sort of mental health policy or plan for players struggling with these issues t start with you? I would say absolutely. Self care is just as important as physical care and treatment. And to be honest, it just seems logical that players NBA NFL any professional sport that athletes would kind of feel this amount of pressure to wear dealing with depression and anxiety seems like it's something that could logically happen. I mean, you've got pressure from your. Teammates, you got pressure from the fans with social media. They're always like direct access pressure to you all the time. You got pressure from your family. They don't see you as often or have expectations for you and your downtime. You get pressure from executives, especially mentioned into Doron Dhamar under Rosen, who thought that he had some form of transfer loyalty with people in the Toronto organization and then ends up being traded. So there's there and then they have pressure from themselves. I'm sure. I mean, everyone has expectations of themselves. I mean, we're not even athletes in. I'm pretty sure all of us on this podcast, have expectations for ourselves and how we feel when we don't meet them. So it makes a lot of sense that there would be that there will be mental health struggles among athletes. And so I do think it's very important for the NBA to have done. This, I think is also important to make sure that there's protection for them for the players for this kind of thing. Because as I've been reading, I've seen that owners have been saying that if this is something that we do that they want to have. Access to the records. And as you know, most medical records in some form are are confidential, and I think that in their mind, I think the argument is, you know, we have access to the players physical record, so we're able to make decisions on what we wanna do based on a player's physical health.

"To be with all of you tonight this is one of those nights where if you're in my shoes if you're hosting a radio show you think lebron james four announcing his decision to move to los angeles and become a los angeles laker an announcement from his representation clutch sports group lebron's james has agreed to a four year one hundred fifty four million dollar contract with the los angeles lakers with that emotions tapped off in cleveland again almost eight years to the week from the original decision which ran on national television lebron has done this three times now made huge decisions that shape or maybe reshape the face of the league reshaped the landscape the topography of the league want to get your thoughts on it eight five five two one two four cbs and we'll talk to james herbert later on this hour and then we'll take more phone calls later in the hour because this is a big deal obviously this'll be one of the bigger news stories of the year back in two thousand ten lebron announced his decision to move from cleveland to miami via a made for tv special eight years later today it's a simple tweet from his representation in between back in two thousand fourteen when he was announcing his return to cleveland from miami he along with lee jenkins from espn i'm sorry from sports illustrated posted a first person letter to everybody to his fans to miami to cleveland and it's interesting to go back and look at it now i'm not gonna read the whole thing but it is interesting to go back and look at bits and pieces of it and i kind of page down to the middle of it here and he says my goal is still to win as many titles as possible no question but what's most important for me is bringing one trophy back to northeast ohio which he did continuing and this is interesting i always believed that i'd return to cleveland and finish my career there i just didn't know when so when he returned in two thousand fourteen i think it's safe to say that lebron was not exactly looking for this day to be happening this day where he would be making his next move to his third team to his third city i've always believed that i'd return to cleveland finished my career there unless he goes back to cleveland one more time and don't rule it out with lebron because ultimately ohio is home for him but didn't happen this time around guessing some things happen along the way that maybe soured him a little bit think losing david griffin the general manager who he really liked about a year ago had anything to do with this i mean if you're looking at things that changed then a kyrie irving trade which lebron claims he didn't want but let's face it the reports are that lebron wasn't exactly he didn't exactly treat kyrie the same way he treated dwayne wade and chris bosh let's just put it that way continuing with a couple more things in the letter and then hit the phones eight five five two one two four two two seven i looked at other teams but i wasn't gonna leave miami for anywhere except cleveland this lebron in two thousand fourteen the more time passed the more it felt right this is what makes me happy to make the move i needed support on my wife and my mom who can both be very tough he talks about repairing his relationship with dan gilbert even goes on to say who am i to hold a garage at the very end here is here is the most interesting part of the the letter to me i'm not promising a championship i know how hard that is to deliver we're not ready right now no way of course i wanna win next year but i'm realistic it'll be a long process much longer than it was in two thousand ten my patients will get tested i know that i'm going into a situation with a young team and a new coach i'll be the old head of by the way that new coach yeah that didn't last long oh by the way tie lou now you get to actually coach have fun winners and losers in this decision are fascinating continuing i see myself as a mentor now and i'm excited to.
Kevin Durant to sign one-and-one deal with Golden State Warriors
"The nba have remained as is you have kevin durant signing a one in one deal with the golden state warriors said essentially keeps their quote unquote death lineup where the hamptons five hour you want to call it intact for another season so we can expect the golden state warriors to get back to the nba finals i'm guessing the question for the warriors is the same thing that lebron james dealt with with dwayne wade and chris bosh with the heat sustaining that success over the course of the regular season and doing it again in the playoffs can be mentally taxing the golden state warriors very open about that with kevin durant saying the first year he was in golden state was a honeymoon season everything was fun it wasn't so much fun the following year but because the nba is so obsessed with speculation this one in one gives a max deals it allows the golden state warriors keep most most of us intact but it starts to speculation for twenty nineteen as to where he could end up so we're not done with this domino effect of who's going where based on kevin durant new contract deals like this that continue to make the nba the greatest league in the world mingka's you've got i it's the storylines tell an off on the court but superstars becoming free agents every year we were going gonna do this dance next year it's going to be kevin durant where's he going the offs is far more compelling than the actual season and for a for a free league that is very entertaining on the court that is saying something incredible and so look at the league gets it right durant yeah no longterm deal we'll be back here twelve months from now that's a win win for everyone including nba fans who love the drama the nba regular season is really just a preseason for free agency and if we're being honest that's all it is we're just we're just biding our time until we get to the real fun stuff chris paul's can stay with the houston rockets that's again one of those foregone conclusions houston rockets i mean they're just one game away from making the nba finals injuries also played into that so they have to feel good about where they were totally understand why they wanna keep going that direction and it also puts the bed the speculation that i saw during the regular season that lebron james could end up in houston they just don't have the space for it lebron james he's in l a he's going to have his conversations he's only going to have a phone conversation with the cleveland cavaliers my guess is he's gonna talk with the lakers i know philadelphia's also in that mix because of the cap because of how teams have stayed put in certain in certain situations like houston or in the case of oklahoma city with paul george there's really only three teams that would make a lot of sense to them in the east and if lebron james wants to get back to the finals the easiest path back to the finals then he's going to stay in the east despite the fact that dan gilbert has said through brian windhorst reporting and stephen a smith backing it up even though dan gilbert the owner of the cavaliers matt says he looks forward to try to build a championship team without lebron james dude you already had that opportunity once you got a couple of first round picks you never made the playoffs so they can get their issues aside and come back together for another season potentially because they're not going to get back to the playoffs without lebron james and if lebron james wants to get back to the finals his easiest path is not through the west with rebuilding with la it's back in cleveland or potentially something like philadelphia it's it's interesting because is it about getting back to the finals is it is it about that or is about winning a championship and and that's something that lebron james is is going to have to figure out because they saw this year that yeah they were how close i think he has to examine how close were we really to winning an nba championship sheriff gerald smith doesn't call that time out actually puts a back end and their one one going back to cleveland how different is the series i think dan gilbert i think that's just posturing that of just knowing the.
LeBron James doesn't want to hear big pitches, will make decision
"About that lebron james we heard that sound bite that's whenever he went to miami and he was talking about all the titles that the miami heat we're gonna win dwayne wade and chris bosh i think people were confused they who's actually talking about stints with the cleveland cavaliers lebron apparently will not do what lebron has done in the past in terms of his recruitment two teams he doesn't want teams to put on the full court press forum them he's going to kind of lay back in already have the lay of the land of the nba already laid all out for him he knows exactly what the teams are about you might bring in some teams to cleveland to talk to him we might have his representation talk to him but in terms of like post gain or post postsigning parties like he's had in the past or all the recruiting things that we've seen lebron james in the past doesn't want that this time around i like hearing that which hopefully i saw something earlier that said that that showed like the last two times he's made his free agent free agency decision it's like an average of nine point one days for him to make so ridiculous stats for that yeah i there shouldn't be and like the crazy thing is is free agency is is essentially on hold until lebron james makes his decision every time it's happened free agency kind of stalls out and that's sad for people like me where free agency is essentially like christmas in the summer it's one of my favorite times of the year because mba free agency is different than any other league where one to moves like one person can completely change the face of a franchise if you're like a middling bad team you add one big name in free agency it happens a lot and it can completely change your trajectory as a team and so i love seeing where guys go how the makeup of the nba changes but when lebron james is the big fish on there before he makes his decision it puts a whole holding pattern on all of the fun and it makes me angry but how often do you see that though miami is miami and it's great but market size there one of the smaller smaller market teams so it happened for them but meeting it could happen to like milwaukee and indiana i think i mean not indiana milwaukee right now just because the greek freak is there it could happen they're like you talk about i mean the franchise has to draft their their franchise cornerstone to make that work where it's enticing enough for player to wanna come there and then you got to think about ownership is ownership willing to take on and pay over the salary caps keep a core like that around that's always usually big problem but it does happen and i think even whenever you're big market teams when they're bad they have the chance to get better by adding some of these big name for ages it's fun to watch the the makeup of the nba change year to year where you could get something different which we haven't lately but you could get something different just based off where one or two guys go i do love the hot stove league in really any any of the sports i like basketball it's great in baseball always whenever you have you know whereas in this year coming up in baseball you have some huge free agents bryce harper manny machado clayton kershaw could be a free agent i mean sometimes the off seasons more fun than the regular season especially if you're a team that's not very good yeah if you're the cleveland browns the off seasons a lot more entertaining because one you're winning the same amount of games to you're going to the you know the nfl draft we have two of the top five picks you're signing some free agents are getting.
