"dennis schreuder" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"Raptors they see drag it is a very tradeable guy who they can get assets for that they like or get financial relief you know. The mavs are not flush with draft picks to throw into a trade after the porzingus deal so Dallas has already tried to get him and hasn't been able to dislodging. I think everybody knows if garage ends up on the free agent. Market dallas is going to zoom to the top of his list. The chance to play alongside. Luca danni the chance to reunite and eager kokoschka off. The former son's head coach is going to be on this dallas coaching staff. Next to jason kidd dallas is the natural landing spot at the mavs. Just don't have an easy trade to make for him. Yes they could said. Dwight powell and ex to toronto raptors wanna take in white palace contract. Can the mavericks put enough drafts sweeteners. With a do they have any way to make that deal more exciting for the raptors or the raptors going to the raptors. It probably makes more sense for them to keep drag it and try to find a trade that they like better. There's everything i hear. There's no way toronto's gonna buy him out. why would they. I mean he is. He is a trade chip and in this sign and trade deal for lowry. All they got was dragging impresses the jewish. They didn't get any draft compensation for miami. Now a chula is a recent first round. Pick so obviously from everything. I've heard that's a player. Toronto is really excited to get but they surely think they could turn dragged into more so eventually. Do i see dragon dallas. Yeah but how long is that. Gonna take yeah. I was told pretty strongly as well. They're not buying out goran dragic. That's just not going to happen and you're right why would they like. He'll probably ultimately report. He may grumble when he does it. But a few months with the raptors a think the raptors will deal with that. If it means they can get something of substance they like back in return and dragic is still play. There's a somewhat reasonable argument to be made about. How much better. Miami got with the kyle. Lowry dragic slot. I think they got better. But i mean you got. You're talking about a pretty reliable offensive player in drug has a good relationship with jimmy butler. Good relationship with that team. So that's valuable player in dallas and you want to be in that mix. I think we both agree. Luca need some help down there and dragic would be that guy no question look that that was their priority to get a secondary ball handler. Lowry was at the top of their list. Dragages someone they're very interested in but you know what the mavs weren't going to do is just say okay. We didn't get lowery so now. Let's try to get the dinwiddie sweepstakes. Let's let's just give dennis schreuder whatever we have left. They want to upgrade their. But they don't want to just throw money at at anybody they can get they wanted me wanna be more judicious about it in. The reality is like for dallas. I mean their biggest.

"Poem murray is out for for the extended run here. Oh you know. Ben simmons and yokich have a little. I could see a chemistry. There is jamal. Mount murray like fair compensation for benson is like he was pretty impressive in the bubble and denver wants to make a run right. I don't think. I just feel like they care too much about the chemistry stuff. That's a really close team. I'm bentsen clutch on that team. All right all right. i'm it too right. We have to see who work where clutches whereas got his clutches. I think ben. Simmons needs to be on a team where somebody else's in charge of perimeter ball handling shot creation. He's moving that eight. His bag like we kept calling him like magic johnson lebron as meaning like dudes that run the offense for the lion share of the possessions there on the floor for their team. They're initiating offense for their team and doing it. Efficiently generating quality looks all over the place. Ben simmons eight that play next to a guy that can actually do that so he could be free up to be the crazy athlete that he is a denver. Re-signed austin rivers. Can we do a little. We do a little role play. It depends. I'm going to be dennis schreuder. Ub my two agents. Oh god hey guys at standards again. i'm really starting to panic here. we have. We heard anything. What's what's going on anybody anything. What are we doing dennis. I gotta tell ya Toronto has great hotels with great five star. Lotions i think toronto look your slide. Right kyle lowry is i know. It's cold but they have a very wonderful and diverse food culture up there. You're able to get fantastic. carribean food. syrian food. Have you ever tried syrian food. That is but look. It's a short flight from from from toronto down down to floor. I mean look. Toronto just played a whole season in tampa. They know that flight pattern exists dennis. So just think about it.

"I know there were some ties to cleveland. But i think he shot them down on twitter. Can't remember it was something like that but the point being like i like josh hurt a lot is a guy who could be like a spot starter. Just playing a lot general for team. He would make a lot of sense like i mean almost anywhere. I mean he could make sense. I don't think miami has the money sign and like i think he's a full emily guy because you still want the shot a little bit better. But he's a smart playmaker easy smart thunder. he's an insane rebounder for size. He may sense pretty much any team trying to win right now. We should take a stab at signing josh heart. One thing i had him on the down he got signed just before the start. Victory depot re signed with the miami heat going to have his bird rights. And i think shomron reported like that. They'll look to resign to a bigger deal next year. I really am so hopeful for him. Man i know a lot of indiana fans and people in general kind of sour victor Some of the hate towards has been just absurd to me like he stole guy like he. He did not do anything to wrong. People i just i. I'm very hopeful. Things got for him because he went from two or three years ago. Looking like a guy would be on a massive contract to now. He's on a minimum like or it's mu- the actual money was reported around a minimum regardless So i'm hopeful that he's able to make things work in miami and i did like like i mean i wrote about and i wrote about victor in what he could do. Act pro lot last year. That's kind of cool. Sorry i just like random thought. Like i really like what victor is. Going to bring miami still as a defender. I do believe that if he is healthy he can do stuff creating off the second side. He hit us catching shoot threes. I don't wanna ask them to do more than that but again i don't know what his health and rehab is looking like right now. It seems based on reporting. He was going to miss a decent chunk of this year. So i'm not sure on that and we'll see Danny green is still available. I'm very where he lands He would be really interesting like obviously anywhere. I mean maybe milwaukee who knows. We'll see though. Kelly ray is still available. I like kelly. Ray probably a little more than consensus. I know that he has some issues on. Offense is defense isn't always consistent. But i still think there's somebody there that matters as a player to me Dennis schreuder went from the four turning down a four year. Eighty million dollar four for eighty four. I can't remember thought my head to now. Like what is he..
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Whoa committed. I'm doug alley been. This is all man you are going to love this the interview on on this album. Jamal thomas is my guest now. Those of us who know journal you would probably know as five or five thirty right. That's what the at some point in part two of this podcast. I'm going to get to the first time. I met journal After we were in college we played together in phoenix in the aba and always interesting. I didn't know what our nickname was. Until i had to look up a couple of things about about About five but anyway. He introduced himself as five five thirty and you'll hear why he's known as as five thirty so he was an incredible player. More than anything unbelievable person in terms of his ability to become just a A kind of a tormented lifestyle when he was a kid so i i can't wait to get to that at the moment of this recording. The lakers rather playoffs. The clippers are down one after an incredible come-from-behind series victory against the dallas mavericks. The nets up two games. A non on the nets and and the hawks as well as they've played they don't have the andrea hunter for the season he underwent an mri which revealed a small tear. Tears the lateral meniscus. He under when surgery on the meniscus today and he's out the rest of the season. So that's a bummer. Because he's incredibly versatile and a very talented kid even if the one game they lost the knicks. Missed a bunch of shots he should he normally makes so i just. I just think that what's really really interesting really really interesting. Is that here. we are. And we're talking about the lakers. And because they lost in the first round. I think people will pick apart the decisions that that rob pelinka made a agree with all of them. I thought dennis schreuder was an off the bench guy not a starter and i think that got exposes. The season went on especially late in the season But but it will. It's like we'll never know 'cause they weren't healthy while we do know. Is that as good as lebron still is. he's an older version. Self in any older athlete needs more help. But there's fewer times which they have their stuff adams clayton a pitcher. That's that's like the easiest one to two two draw parallel to. What does it mean heading. Forward heading forward. It means that they're going to continue to have to now. Only add more shooting and add more stripey stick and score more points. They're so focused on defense as a defensive champion last year. But i also think you're going to have to figure out if not only lebron is willing to take a secondary role maybe tertiary role and kenny operate in an offense in which doesn't solely folks run him having the basketball. It's like they need a point guard. Will he allow anybody else to be blinkered as the clippers. They could've looked one game one. I'm not as down on them as others are. I think they still have good match ups here. I think you've got to withstand a donovan mitchell. Forty five point barrage. I think they can do that. I still like the clippers. I like thai. Lose adjustments as the series went on in dallas. And i think if that is the that is his strength figuring out you know the the the tricks if if you will to getting the right match ups. They should be in good shape in this series. All right let's get to jamal thomas. We'll talk about some of these series. We'll talk about playing nba. Eventually but i. I want to talk about his first falling in love with basketball when the all time greats in the big east providence. College djamil thomas. Thomas join his year in the all ball pod. I you're currently driving home from your son's faxes held. Then you go gauchos couch. You already have with the kids. How different is it from when you were a kid. Oh well. I didn't to be honest. I didn't play when distant past. And so we just put him out there for the experience and they can have fun and let him know what he's capable of going. Okay so let's let's talk about that. Your path was different right You're you're born in brooklyn what was your. What was the early days like your first first sports memories. Were like what well scott. My first book was baseball. A fell in love baseball early age other around around nine. Ten years old. I started playing baseball. You know would surrender. I never really played organized street. I've played that first before basketball. And then when you start hope it. I hope when i was thirteen like you weren't playing like pick up or playing breakfast for thirteen. Oh to be honest i i. I've kinda watched it a lot Because it was right there in front of my face and coney allen. But i never really. I never played. It never played it like. I've seen a line like You know my cousin stuff. I used to eleven years old. I used to go to his games. And i didn't even play but but but like why like new york. When i think in new york city i think of all players and then staff was like like a legend very early on right and i just but why weren't you playing was. You just didn't like it like oh our streets. It i was gonna street was really. I'm not trying to brag about it or claiming. anything is just you know. My path is different I didn't have my parents went up. So i didn't have any kind of guidance. A stuck out his brothers play basketball all play visual basketball so he was able to see that and follow that so he had some type of motivation. Do the sports and unlike me. I didn't have that same motivation. A speech fighting. And you know hanging out with drug dealers and stuff like that and then you know i. I made a turning point in my life. Though what the hell of my mental missile move passed away Back in two thousand seven but he. He was the guy that transition from the street. Playing basketball you. Your your mom was was murdered when you're four years old. What and this is like. I'm guessing there's no therapy at the time. How did you deal with not having your parents. How'd you deal with being on your own well arm. In the street you know self destructing was fighting ally Wasn't like wasn't a school kid. You know i. I i was cutting class. You know early well cutting school early. You know when. I was young so i was just you know it was. It was traumatizing noting that there's no way that you can deal with that type of trauma. No luckily thing that i i didn't really hurt anyone severely because i hurt myself building. So.
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"That back over and over and over again and it's pretty wild and a kind of look it just is what it is. It's just bad luck. Some because he has a history yes but he hasn't had like a history where it's been debilitating injuries. This is first one that you're like. Oh achilles what tend to noces whatever they call it like that. That was weird but to me. Dennis schreuder man. Dennis schreuder to me had all this promise. I was like yo. Is you know if you had to hit the upgrade button on rondo. It was going to be him and there were moments early in the year rows. Yo dennis schreuder can be a real fit for this team moving forward and then the covert thing happened. The protocols thing happened again and it felt like after that he made that room e got he had that interview with the german outlet where he said something about lebron and then all of a sudden everything went spiraling out of control for him. It felt like he was never the same player after whether whether it was a diagnosis of covid or just the controversy that surrounded all that stuff. He was never the same player and in the moment of truth. Okay when you look at these. Two teams chris. Paul was hurt man like hurt. He couldn't feel the damn ball for a couple of games and the dudes around him stepped up. And you know what happened with the lakers won their dudes or not playing. Well they did not me stat moment. No they did not meet that moment saying next man up but dot dot dot but not me right it was. It was really like i'm going to. I'm going to cut dennis a little bit of slack in the sense that he played better last night than he did gain five. He had a very strong bounce back game for him. Laura what was it you just said she meets jumping zero. So i mean we can't go worse. It got worse. Not just the point total but i mean the overall effort. He's flying all over the floor. He's really exerting himself in a defensive and he's four court pressure for some possessions so overall not just the point total but just the output. I agree but i'm just saying there was not much worse. He sip from a statistical standpoint. Sure but there there are guys who gave you twenty and date and we anything and guys five minute the world because it depends on when it happens so i'm all about looking at the overall performance of dennis and i'll go if you were that guy that i saw last night were consistently that i would love to have you back but you're not that guy. Br eat amateurs hell's the actually. Alex crusoe fourth alex guy. Alex gives dennis. Shooter lost me yesterday the day before and a limit of the day of elimination game. You're playing this nonsense with your instagram. Now bro you're done. I'm on you out on you like you are not a serious person to me. If that's what you're thinking about the day that you are about to be eliminated as the defending champions of the national basketball association. He's serious. he's not a defending. I understand but his. This is what i kept trying to tell you to lead up to this. This isn't the group of guys that i've been through the fire with us l. matter it has a competitor. I don't i don't play that. He wasn't a champion as a competitor. That's not the nonsense you pull when we're about to be eliminated george. There's a reason why he didn't win anything before he got here. There's a reason why he's been a starting point guard in this league before. This isn't the first time. So what i'm saying is that we knew what that was when we got it. We knew what that was when we got it. We can look at it. We could see we canalis. And he's like. Oh how do you impact teens blah blah blah. I i was saying. I wasn't sure if the dinners beyond the regular season will be the dennis we saw in the postseason because we had not seen it before he hasn't had an opportunity. Show that before. So i had always had some question marks in terms of some of the moves only because i knew one we were losing things. People weren't factoring but also to who also bringing in some news who hadn't been through the fire but they happen in the league for a minute so you had opportunities to go through fire but for whatever reasons you didn't go through fire these kids that we brought him. We brought in some veterans and some of these veterans hadn't been nowhere. She george you asked this question of. Who are you most disappointed in. And i think it's pretty easy for all of us to be disappointed shooter. But i gotta go back to the top you know. The quarterback gets all the glory when they win and takes the blame when they lose. Lebron is a quarterback lebron would have taken the glory had they come back and one and probably would have deserved it of course but on the other hand what. I'm most disappointed in when it comes to lebron and it's it's partially it's me and if you're if you're in the exact same mind space then it's it's you'd probably too. Which is we all still expected lebron to be able to carry a team. And when i was hurt i know i kept thinking well. It doesn't even really matter. As long as lebron healthy lebron can do it on his own. it would be nice to have eighty s. Help what i think i know. Now i think is that when i look at lebron and i see the gray creeping in. That's why i go get my hair colored. I don't you think i'm old looking. Like he looked sweaty tired gray and old now had they won he probably would have looked lathered conditioned in great shape and a champion. What i'm saying is is that my perception right. Now lebron is. I don't know a fully healthy. Lebron can put a team on his back. The way i anticipated. He could not sure if he can do it anymore. Yeah i disagree with that i look. He's not i mean. When he was a fully healthy lebron he was number is leading the mvp race fair enough but he came back. He said i was not a healthy runs completely fair but he came back and he didn't miss any time i mean like ad couldn't keep himself. Together i mean he add kathy time. Well no what i mean. When he came back when he came back at the end he hasn't missed any time. Since that time this time since the second time you missed time correct thank you as long as you know how ridiculous take saudi. Well because time then he came back and then he missed more time but came back. So you're saying when he came back into the season after missing time twice injury..
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Their seasons on the brink lakers can be eliminated tonight. Oh my gosh. and then. You've got the clippers and the mavericks coming up With an opportunity for the mavericks to one and done the clippers Wow sixers survive without Embiid when i guess as much as a team already up three one ken quote unquote survive And the jazz impressive In victory Taking care of business Last night and moving on to the second round and just gelin waiting to see who they're gonna wind up Taken on as the nuggets and the blazers have added again. What a dynamite game that was and we all know. Obviously the eastern conference is set. The celtics losing to the nets. In who knew what was gonna happen to the celtics the minute they walked off the floor and barclay center and the talk about all of this is one of our favorites from the worldwide leader in sports. We had the host of the jump. Yesterday in. Rachel nichols now. The main stays of that show and also of their basketball coverage through outstanding basketball coverage on the worldwide leader in sports bryant went horseback year. And the richeisenshow harry. Brian and back in studio in la for the first time in fourteen months. We saw that i saw that. That's one of the reasons why. That's one of the reasons why i waited till decent our to text you brian. Well here in the playoffs. I'm up pretty early on. I bet i bet wire. The lay the loss wise los angeles basketball seasons on the brink. Brian well reasons. I mean the lakers are just really banged up. And not only that but their team is inadequately constructed to handle challenges in front of them. Which is that without. Anthony davis. They really need lebron to ramp up his scoring and the way lebron does that is by attacking the paint. Neither off the dribble or getting in there Out of you know with his back turned and go into work and number one. I don't think he's you know. I don't think that ankles allowing him to do it. I don't know if they'll ever admit it. But you know if you look at his array of move that he's using in this series. It's not his normal right. he hasn't gone to spin move and other stuff like that. I just don't believe he has the same strength in there. And then because the lakers cannot buy outside. Shot The and the andre drummond is a guy who they're now playing this two sons. Pack the paint you you mean you can see as you watch this series. Go along sort of the resting position. That the suns take on defense in other words whether watching the ball. They've gone from being three or four steps outside the paint to the other night Tuesday night there are players literally had a foot in the paint when the brown was looking to go there and now all of a sudden we're backed like two thousand seven lebron with with those calves teams where he had to be super human to get it up onto the rim and and so you know th the they're really their only hope you know that i see tonight. Is that some of their guys. Start hitting some of those outside shots and at least know. Get the points up or at least force the sons to rethink their strategy. And i think it's a big lift. It could happen. I mean. I've seen lebron do it. Dozens of times but The sons are clearly in better shape. And we'll see if the anthony can play. I think he's gonna you know. Try it I don't know how effective is going to be the clippers rich You know there are. There are very maddening team. You know last night. Luka doncic outplayed leonard. That's just the truth of the matter and You know look look is potentially an all time great You know and and kawhi has been really good in this series. I'm not saying that. Kawhi leonard dragged. Because he got al played by a guy who could be an mvp in the very near future but this is why losing games one and two at home is so damn hurtful because now you have your star outplayed and you're on the brink because of the effort level and the intensity level and the and everything like that brought out in in those first few games and that's a penalty that they're now really having to face so let's take one at a time then Lakers get eliminated tonight And what do you think the all their their summer looks like going into the fall. What are they do. What are the moves that that this team used to let you think well rich you know. Dennis schreuder turned down a contract extension for a lot of money in february and I wonder how he feels about that. Because shooter has been awful. He's just been all frankly. He hasn't been the same player since he got cove it And i mean. I i don't mean maybe he's feeling affects that jason. Tatum talked about how it was tugging on him for months that he was having breathing issues for months schreuder. It's his personal health situation. So you know he has every right to keep it private and when shooter has been asked about. Kobe gotten very angry Doesn't wanna talk about. That's fine. But i i don't want to say he got covert. He came back to the same player. And frankly he's been awful in this series he was. He was absolutely dreadful. And he's their biggest free agent And the thing about it is. It's it's you know it's not zero sum. It's not like they can say okay. Dennis you didn't work out for us. Thank you To you now. We're gonna go sign kyle lowry. It doesn't work that way because the way it works the nba is you. You can't go over the salary cap to sign players unless they're your players on team. And if the lakers lose tonight and to pay how it goes i suspect in the array of stories that come out afterwards and then the array of analysis. You're going to hear kyle lowery's name discussed a lot because the i mean ultimately the raptors didn't trade them so it's it's really hard to know like this would have done it but you know what we believe happened is that the lakers were not willing to put taylor and horton tucker into the trade in addition demonstrator And could not get kyle lowry back. And because they wanted to protect their young that young good player for the future and you know and tucker has been at times in this series not even gotten off the bench although he did play well on tuesday and i expect them to have a bigger role tonight. And so. that's the the thing that we're gonna see you know You know is there something that you can do with dennis schroder or signing trading. Dennis shooter to improve him to court and tucker is also a free agent but he's restricted. So they would have control on on keeping him. But that's gonna be a real big thing one of the things about when you have a championship team. Sometimes it can be tough to improve it. And you know they're free agent signing that they made They're big free agent. Signing last year was Was mantras harrell. Who is basically not gonna factor in this series. So you know. I think there was a bunch of things that are going to have to be improved. What if the clippers get bounced. Is it possible that calliing bounces himself. What do you think i just. I'm first off. I don't. I have not heard anything about that and i'm just going to go back to. When he was a free agent two years ago we a lot of speculation but none of us had a really good feel for what he was gonna do. We thought there was a good chance he was gonna come to la and and and we have felt the clippers for months. But we didn't know. And i and i'm gonna say i'd have no insight. I'm not reporting anything..
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"Be combustible You know the laker certainly. I think we knew this laker team that because of the bronze age that you know there was a window here in getting. Anthony davis lebron's thirty six. They win a title last year or now they're they're fighting for their lives here in a game. Six down three two hopeful. That anthony davis plays in this game six and i think a a margin for error on this laker team. That is pretty significant. I mean you saw without. Anthony davis lost by thirty and Or without lebron playing. I mean they're gonna struggle. They need both of those players to win in the postseason in both implying at a really high level so even up. Anthony davis who's physically limited in a game six. It worries you because this phoenix team. When chris paul zeman on the floor and healthy and able to be some relative maximilian himself. They've they've they've been great. I mean they've been great against laker team. And and so you know all the young some of the younger role players people thought well first time in the playoffs Let's see how it goes for them. Mikhail bridges been terrific devon booker obviously not a role player star player You know these young guys have shown their you know. The stage isn't too big for them even at this early point in their career. So i think For this laker team it is fragile right now and this championship windows fragile. Because you don't know. How many cracks you get you get at lebron's going to be an all star at least all-star probably for till he's forty now. Is he an mvp all nba first team guy at thirty eight thirty nine. We'll see we'd never really seen anything like that but it worse still going to be an all star and that's hard to even fathom At that age but but he's but right now like this one goes by the board with the first round loss. You don't really know. How many more cracks you get As a group With the lakers. With this with this you know. Ad lebron Partnership one here's a team. That's eight free agents to i mean. That's that's the big thing is that you've you basically have committed over one hundred million dollars to four players with lebron de contagious call. Popa kyle kuzma. And now you have a decision to make on dennis. Schreuder out crusoe. Down horton tucker. All your role players going from andre drummond to markeith moore's That group here. It's not like you can say you know. We don't want him like you know it's not like you can go out and say you know what dennis shooter. You scored zero points in game five. You're not good enough anymore. We're going to go out and find a suitable. Replacement doesn't work that way. You're gonna pay. You're gonna pay schreuder if you wanna keep them. You probably gonna pay him anywhere from twenty to twenty four million dollars a year. That's how it's gonna be and that's what you signed up for here and said that they can't replace him A player of his. So they're gonna have to pay him and there's going to be interested him in free agency and teams who are looking at point guards. Whether it's chicago's new york. Pretty pretty good. Pretty good point guard class out there in free agency some interesting players and some teams with some needs and so Yeah the lakers are gonna have to That's going to be a tough one for them. They knew it when he when suga turned down the eighty was bobby. Eighty four eighty four. Thank you for eighty four million that he could he could have done during the season tells you he knows he can get better and so get more somewhere else than so lakers will be able to pay him more in the off season and and he'll be will be offered more than.
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on First Take
"There. I understand that andre drummond is a bigger body he can play. He was service support with his thirteen rebounds. Four offensive for montrose. Hell is energizer bunny. He's a doll. And i mean that in a positive way. He's a doll. where the hell is the. You gotta put up the you know if he does not reliable. I'm not going to disrespect. Anthony davis because injured. You engine many got multiple injuries to the same leg. Max and i get that but damn you got charles barkley on the air. I mean if ever. There was tom tall. What was the larry's made you fall out of your chair. It was when he called. Anthony davis street clothes his injury history for the season. If we can pull that up. I mean i mean that was just hilarious and i ain't knocking anthony davis 'cause you injured you engine and i trust that the bottom line is he's an injury pro player. You notice frank vogel. How in the hell do you not prepare. The los angeles lakers particularly your front line to be able to play without. Anthony davis at least defensively at least when it comes to rebounding at least when it comes to having some kind of interior president frank vogel that's offering full so i'm just looking at it max and i'll hand it off to you by saying this. Lebron james listen this one. I want to hear no damn go conversation. There was never an issue with me. I don't wanna hear you better show up in game six and be not just a great player. We know you to be somebody. Who's worthy of being on a mount rushmore. You got to galvanize. These troops get these boys ready because their teammates look soft. They look weak last night. They just got straight talked. You get you get max in here. That's what happened. The person most responsible for the loss and it took a lot of people. Have a loss like that. Like you could say whatever you want. I don't know what happened in the second half of that game. Anyone watching the second half of that game. Everyone was watching denver portland twenty down twenty-seven down thirty points at the half. Get out of here. The person most responsible for the loss is dennis schroder. That's the person most responsible. And i don't wanna hear stephen a the particulars about what role needs to be filled now. The ad not playing. It's much simpler than that. Your best players lebron. He was able to play your second best players. Ad he couldn't go. Your third best player is dennis schreuder. Dennis schroder turned down. Eighty four million dollars because he wants one hundred million. He's the best player. The team has to step up and be the second best play. The big question was okay. Shooters better than rondo in the regular season. Not in the regular season. Now we're the playoffs and there's playoff rondo. What's playoff shooter like. There's no such thing as playoff shooter. Apparently stephen a here are the numbers from shooter. Last night overnight shooting all four from three he had one assist. And no points when you need it this due to step up. He had zero points. The first quarter site in the game zero points the first laker to go scoreless in a playoff game while shooting. Nine plus shots since the franchise moved to la. So you can talk to mom. Mantras harrell and andre drummond. And how coach should he used them in. Lebron not stepping up enough and everything else. Your wannabe hundred million dollar point guard needed to step up and he gave you zero points. He did something that no one has ever done with. The los angeles lakers. If you're looking for one guy to blame schreuder deserves it most. Please please no disrespect max. You're not wrong. I'm not trying to imply that you're wrong. What you're saying about true to himself and his pathetic weak impotent performance. You're absolutely right. But it's an absolute joke. If you acting like a cause or what the hell happened last night you can have a bad game like that from schreuder and still be a bit more respectable. Understand that when i hear talking about how the lakers lost a game. If we talk about how they lost game we dissect how they lost game five. All right you roll back to. The steak was sent the game six. This conversation is about a beatdown that took place in phoenix. Straight up beat down. They got poked. Yo rolled up on court phoenix. They get the hell out of the state and they did it in like inside a fifteen minute. Wait got snoop dogg. Talk talking about the clippers. Snoop dogg hulking talking clippers. Did something put that this new dog wears purple and gold snoop dogg got a car draped purple and gold snoop dogg. And i've been at the compound. I've been at the cow palace. This new compound lakers stuff. Everywhere snoop dogg. Was the one going crazy way. Kobe dropped sixty on his last night in the nba. God rest his soul snoop. Dogg was stephen as world twenty. Fps got clippers clippers and this brother goes on instagram and like how about the clippers. Now because the software called the lakers saw said they can't go out talk about coach. Frank vogel he needed to be fired. He brought up montreal's arrow. I'm mean my god. That was a beat down and they better show up against. I've got molly. I got the slotted. I was planning of being a new york forward to enjoy my next few weeks to weather. Nice is beautiful the woah outside the pier at south street seaport hours playing being new york got to fly to la the got we all feel very sorry for you because he'll very sorry for you. Feel sorry for stephen. our sympathies. comedian lebron james. I tom going home in the first round. This levies. lebron. James keep in mind has the most points per game when facing elimination more than mj. More than will so over folks. Let's keep it going though. All i have to say is fifty five dame time all night. Long one of the most incredible postseason performances ever lillard fifty by points in nba playoff record. Twelve three pointers in the trailblazers double overtime loss at denver. Game five on tuesday. Willard broke the record of eleven set by klay thompson that was in two thousand sixteen game six against okay see dame dela we mean now so you got to win both the next two games. We want to everyone our season continuing similar. But after what you gave just personally like no matter we lost again. So i may at this point is we can't lose another game series so we go out there and we play to win the game and we came up short so going back home. It's a must win or else our seasons and then we got to come back here and went on a floor show. I mean that's what it is. Not root for that guy. Her dame caused quite a stir and social media last night. Patrick mahomes mandatum. Lillard is razi steph. Curry chimed in damian. Lillard that's all i have to say. Donovan mitchell steve. Where does lillard performance rank. I have no idea all. I can tell you that it's up this one of the greatest performances i've ever seen in all my life. What aspect listen. I've seen jordan dropped sixty three at the garden. I've seen kobe drop eighty.
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Reggie miller join us in the first hour and he accused the lakers of treating that game like it was a preseason game. Bill orem covers the lakers for the athletic. What do you think of what reggie miller had to say about that. Well they sure played like it was a preseason game and did not bring the requisite intensity you would expect when you are on the brink of falling into a hole that will potentially lead to elimination of the defending champions. And you know it's always interesting to see who steps up In these situations moakley and one guy who's become kind of a leader or a truth teller for the lakers team is marquee morris and listening to him last night. I mean you're not going to get much straighter than markeith morris. Who said that the lakers. You know this would be the time for the championship. Dna to present itself because they have not played with the desperation. This season that you would expect and so you know. The the truth will be on thursday night and frank vogel said the same thing we will find out how we want this but i keep waiting for somebody else to step up that you know wait. Lebron is not gonna play forty minutes. He's not gonna put up forty five. I know dennis schreuder scored when i scored last night. Bill kyle coups mill. Somebody needs to step up. I mean is it really that hollow of a roster that i did. I totally overrate this roster. When i thought they added some new pieces they might be better than the team. That was in the bubble. Personal defense was invaluable. Though dan i think we all may overrated this roster a little bit. And there's so many things you can point to a over the course of the season where it's obviously the quick turnaround and the number of new pieces there. Thanks my herald was unplayable in the playoffs. Last year against denver and the laker was the crown jewel of the lakers off season. They gave nine billion dollars. Look like a seal. He can't on the court in this series. So what was the value of that edition. If it's not somebody who can help you the playoffs. Marcus saul heralded. Addition you go out and sign his replacement while he's dealing with covid so not a lot of trust there and like you said. Dennis shooter not playing. Well so the lakers they made slashing moose but here we are with the season the line and those players are not are not contributing in a meaningful way and so. I don't know quite how you unpack this season just yet. You could certainly point to the injury. Anthony davis i mean it is obviously a massive blow. But you kind of have to look at this moment. As more of a culmination of a series of of obstacles over the course of season in the moments of the lakers had where you would have expected them to start looking like a champion and as an avid you know from the from the roster moves to the to some kind of bewildering wilder losses. Along the way to the parent. And you're kind of at times. I just i just think this team has never looked like the best team in the nba and sort of given them the credit of being last year's champion in dominating in the bubble where they were so tremendous. But we haven't seen that team again this year..

"And i listed all the way down to lebron lillard Or the guy. So i went through. That list is to look at it. 'cause nurk were so incredibly high as was dorian. Finney smith bogdanovich crowder's right there crowder. Who is on the list of this. This is the list finished smith. Bogdanovich nurkic lebron damian lillard. Joe harris crowder drew holiday. Joel embiid luka doncic elites crazy to see the name in there saying and it doesn't and he's over a million he makes three like once a year. It feels like right recently and yet you see how vital he is off court numbers they have been outstanding with crowder on the floor and israel for for mrs z is a role player. That does keep the ball moving he. He doesn't make defensive mistakes he rarely is taking some ridiculous shot. he's gotta make open threes. Like that's what it's not like. He's taking a million contested ones. And you wish he would stop at some point but hell they win when jae crowder on the floor for sure is a good player and one other amazing stat here via stat. Muse schroeder is the first laker to go scoreless in a playoff game while attempting nine plus shots since the lakers moved from minneapolis to los angeles in nineteen sixty since nineteen sixty. The first time. That's wild never happen. Not since nineteen sixty according to stat news. I gotta go scoreless attempting nine or more shots. That's remarkable the lakers have been to. I don't know how many playoffs since then history lott's front that's historic. We saw a historic performance. Maybe it was just frame it in the positive tonight. We saw historic performance by dennis. Schreuder something we've never seen and in fact something. Your father never even saw over nine for the gosh. Those guys did not exactly Come along with with the broad. James there for the fight andro again. They got to have good great. Chris paul they got get. I mean unless eighty some play again. We'll see lakers without et that. He davis just.
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"Loss you can basically cut those numbers in half. He's been averaging eleven point two game and shooting thirty thirty five percent so he could be a huge difference maker tonight. Yeah absolutely could be absolute and needs to be you know he needs to step up and i think that second doors secondary score. He needs to be that guy tonight to hector. He needs to hector. Chris paul and defense and he knew i love that word by the way. Hector needs to hector. Chris paul and defense which i think he's really good at hectoring people and then he's got to be the second scoring option Crews my the third scoring option. One of those two guys is going to need to go twenty points. Plus we'll think about seventy somebody in theory could really get paid over these next three games. If somebody like andre drummond or dennis schreuder picks up the slack for anthony davis and leads. The lakers passed a really good. Sons team doesn't that set. Whoever that person is up for a huge deal oh no question. So that's a pretty big motivator. Yeah yeah. I think look. Tonight is a that. This is the reason we have lebron. James this is. This is the point of lebron james. We have lebron and they don't have lebron. It's gonna take that kind of you know signature lebron performance for us to win this game tonight. It all does come down to him and it's on his shoulders and he's been here before he's never i repeat this. He has never in the first round of the playoffs. Lost two consecutive games. Never that sets up. Well for the lakers. Tonight it is in phoenix and that place looks pretty crowded. How how do you think phoenix. They're packing them in. And in that. I mean it'll be a factor but the lakers have won there before they've won in this series there before so it's not it'd be you were talking about lebron. Follow me here. Hey you were talking about lebron pudding a team on his shoulders. He i mean he knows that. Here's lebron talking about how he knows. He's got to carry the load now for me. Bernard payment position to be successful in our approach starts from our ability. Took on everybody else so you know shoulders with go for reasons. He takes me to put some more on top of it than soviet win. Lose or draw. I'm ready for child's all right. So let's go. Yeah that's what he's doing one. let's do it. We got the game for you. Of course tonight. Five thirty will be pre game. That was mason dropping off. Mason unplugging has combo here's pretty well it could have been his dog either mason or his dog unplug. What what he was beginning to say was pre game with allen. Suihua and michael thompson at five thirty tip off at michael will be along shortly to join our show as well. But it's a great day to be a laker fan. This is a very exciting game. I think that people are going to be all over. The city glued to the tv and the radio tonight. And i think the lakers are going to show up. I think that they really are. And if they don't remember series and over then we get a home game. Thursday and i picked lakers in seven from the beginning. And i'm not picking against lebron in the first round until the brian loses in the first round. That has never happened. Will cover that as well as the dodgers who had an interesting weekend. They dominated the giants in san francisco but then san francisco kinda dominated them here. They got back on the winning track last night against st. louis we'll get into all of it mason and ireland seven ten. Espn all right. That's the rubicon. yes. I think you're swinging. Look so good that we need to go back to eighteen holes. No absolutely not. Your swing looks great. Yeah no absolutely not. we're sticking with nine holes. Wait a minute holes eighteen hole. I don't have a chance to eighteen. I don't believe i've got a chance at eighteen. I believe you wear me down. And i will get tired and i will lose my all. That kind of stuff is going to happen on eighteen. Just do nine. Just go with it. We'll see what michael says when he gets in. We'll we'll let him weigh in swing. Looks good enough to go. The full eighteen a real round of golf not. Is there any piece of advice. You would give me on my swing. No i like it. I you keep your left arm straight. You've got a good high finish. That front foot thing doesn't bother me as lonzo. Ball's going straight and it looked like at least that once when you showed the ball went straight. Yeah no it did. Go straight go straight. I'm meghan thank you. Derek allen out at rancho park by the way yesterday. I'm leaving. I just finished my lesson and some guy walks up. Goes hey mason. Why i'm here is because i heard you talking about derek allen on On the radio. So you inspired me so derek allen becoming very popular along the way too well if he turns you into a golfer he may just have to open his own practice chimerical walker the miracle worker. So let's say. I wanted to get something here as we get ready for gay five tonight. Do we have time to take that call from four. Mondo you're on seven ten. Espn doing guys great. Show i tell you what what i am worried about. Nobody ever puts the onus on frank vogel. he's the head of the snake. And i tell you what was his issue with what he does. After the fact i tell you what herald got great energy. Phd's has great great games before. Why does it. Frank vogel carry any of this cross the burden for himself. Well i think our mondo might take on it. I haven't talked to anybody inside the team about this but my take on. It is frank. Vogel is a defense. I head coach. And if you're not a great defensive player you're going hard defensively. He doesn't trust it and so he's not gonna play guys that don't play great defense now. Ten and norton tekere can play great defense. He's got long arms he's aggressive but he gets out of position sometimes makes like he's a young guy so he's easy to bait.
"dennis schreuder" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Me again because every time we get so. Take that for what it's worth. I even think about who. I was picking until that exact moment but this venture going to make me look stupid. So yes yeah. You're aware that lebron's on the lakers rain. I okay just make sure 'cause this hasn't gone well like in the last twelve years. It feels like you go against lebron. You're like paul pierce. You don't like lebron. I do lebron i just for some reason i i convinced myself that other teams can beat it like. I was doing that with that professor. At one point during lebron's tiny which was stupid hindsight but like boston several times over out your show. It was more likely than not but the lakers. Don't make the playoffs which a clip that. I was made to eat over and over again on social media for two years. So you go with lebron. Well i look. I did not get to the playoffs. Going into the playoffs. With the lakers. At full strength. I picked the lakers to win the whole thing i did. I thought what the injuries significant like going without him against this team is going to be really tough. So we'll see what lebron pull out like invariably does it right invariably. He does something superhuman. That makes people like me look stupid. But this is a tough tough match-up for that laker team without a d- what kind of fallout you. Think that the lakers will have. If they don't get out of the first round given the circumstances probably not much. do they keep dennis schreuder. Do they get rid of kyle. Kuzma markelle sol's probably a one and done. Do they keep mind raising your contract. You're around. I don't want him another year. I think they're kind of stuck with them though. I don't know what you wave and eat this out. I honestly this and this was back to a conversation about several teams. That are facing questions whether boston miami whatever. This has been so weird with kobe issues. Four games in five nights myriad injuries the lakers have been at the forefront of it. I don't think he overreacts. To the end result of this big beating the first round by phoenix their reasons for right you lost anthony davis you had a bunch of injuries that affected your chemistry. Andre drummond came in late. We can explain a lot of that away. I think it would be a mistake to just blow up lakers. You may have a tough decision to make on shooter. I mean he clearly wants to get like twenty twenty five million dollars per year on new contracts. So maybe that's a tough call but this still a laker team. Dan that when fully healthy. I would favor going into next year. I would consider them a favourite going into next year. He like the clippers and mavs new. I dog the clippers. Pretty bad after game two. Because i didn't think they had the mental toughness to do what they did over the last couple of games. We banged on playoff p. Paul george and kawhi leonard for not showing up against luka doncic. They showed up in these last couple of games and again circumstances affect kind of what you project a series..
Lakers vs Suns: Davis, Schroder and Drummond Shine
"Great laker suns game. It was chris. Paul by the way only played twenty three minutes and the lakers had do hang on for the win. If i'm frank vogel. This morning lakers coach. He's been in a lot of these playoff series. I had a restless restless night's sleep. So anthony davis was not only fantastic but super aggressive. He know us play like that. Dennis schreuder may have played his best game as a laker. Certainly as best playoff game. It's not even close okay. He was great last night. Andre drummond was super effective and lebron played well and we held on to beat phoenix in trouble in the fourth and chris. Paul wasn't around the end. And i'm not sure chris balls got more than fifty percent of a right now

"dennis schreuder" Discussed on Wendell's World & Sports
"Better teams in the western conference in as a right. now. I'm not completely sure that's going to happen. Windows rolled is sports on your host the wall so glad that you could be with us. That's one scenario that we're looking at in terms of what what's going to be the situation glass half empty. Mr many game because of injury not going to have enough term to recover. Give back to where they can lead a team to a championship. The other scenario in terms of glass being full. Mr positive looking down the bright side. If i'm went down for christmas insult shit under my tree. i was hit hit hit parade. I must have gotten myself than opponent. If you're gonna have that outlook on things concerning lebron and anthony davis if a man those injuries to those two that the best thing that could have happened to them you know what because after an extremely short offseason ronald's coming out there talking about he wants to go ahead and play the entire seventy two or behind majority of seventy two. We've known the career of anthony davis rings always had these not major injuries but these like annoying injuries a hamstring here a slave pull their pinkie injury. I hand injury. Something that senator not anything debilitating or long-term anything like that. But it's always just been something so you were going to be asking. Anthony davis basically ten minutes after the finals. Were over to get back and start playing again. Playing at the level he was playing. It will will a court. You know the history of anthony davis eventually he was going to break down. So what the two main components the two main superstars. The foundation pieces for the los angeles lakers to win it. Nba championship. what they're doing right now. This is their off-season. This is what they're doing to get themselves ready right now to get ready for. The playoffs is to be refreshed. It to be ready mentally physically ready to go. We all know about the recovery powers of lebron james and we all know about the mind that lebron james has for the game of basketball to wear. Okay he might not be one hundred percent he might not be eighty to eighty five percent but still guess what a sixty five sixty eight point. Seven eight four six three one seven five five. Lebron james is still better than anybody that you got out here. He can make dennis schreuder better. He can make andre drummond better. He can make casey.
Sportswriter Zach Lowe on NBA Mid-Season Leaders
"Where. We are at the midway point of the nba season. And that means. I have questions for you about the utah jazz. I say the utah jazz to you. Right now what comes to mind a whole lot of threes there making these every time you know checkup jazz box score at my brain just glances over twenty two thousand from three leg. It's just nothing there number two in defense in number three or something in offense. They do profile as championship contender. Like they're the best team in the league by record right now. Are they the best team in the league to you. While the comparison that that's become sort of commonplaces they're they're the new sixty win hawks. The team that was built to win a lot of games regular season pretty ball movement side to side movement. You don't really have the star power to compete against lebron james when it comes down to it in the playoffs but i don't think they're just sort of blake a regular season flute so the way the jazz are playing right now. It reminds me not just of the hawks as you said but also a kind of mutant version of the houston rockets simply because of the sheer volume of threes. Does that comparison sounded all right and also does that comparison than invite the questions about what happens in the postseason. If shooting a bunch of threes doesn't go as well as it did in the regular season. That comparison does not ring true to me honestly just stylistically. They're so different. The volume of threes is similar. Like they are taking a houston. Daryl morey level volume of threes. But they play so differently. The other comparison is brad stevens. I think the first one to give voice to this is to two thousand fourteen spurs which is kind of like. That's that's i don't want to say that out loud well to an mba hipster fan to an emmy afficionados. Let's put it that way kinda sewer. What does that specific spurs team. What does that evoke in your memory. It almost has this sort of religion. Level reverend yes. Everybody loved watching that team. Anybody who was at games three to five of the finals that year when by the beginning of game four we were all looking at each other. Like all my god. They're just going to destroy the heat and to compare any team to where that team reached. It just feels like talking to a pitcher in the seventh inning of a no hitter. Something like you just don't want to say out loud but that is a comparison. People are making looked at jazz. Their undoing in the playoffs in in previous seasons was day would very much like the hawks. Actually day would get a lot of open threes and not make them and you could look at that and say well. We did everything right. We just didn't make shots. Which is what. Every hawks team including that one said after the playoffs. And so yeah. The three point volume is similar to the rockets. And that's a little scary. The team that this discussion has occurred in the context of is the lakers. As you said as it must be the defending champions and so when you look at the lakers right now. I want to get to lebron specifically in a second but just them without anthony davis and how much they've struggled most recently losing to these jazz and blow out. What is that revealing to you or confirming to you about what this team needs to actually content. I think like any team. They need their best players to be healthy. I i'm pretty low on the lakers panic meter because it's not just anthony. Davis who you know was first team all nba hill assures. Anthony davis is not like some borderline all the best players in the league. Dennis schreuder is maybe their third best player. I think kyle kuzma is kind of the claim that mantle disturbing might be their third most important player. Because he's the only other guy. With the exception of some frisky alex russo games entail. Norton tucker will get you some. You know some stuff done now and then but he's learned other on ball creator the other the other guys threat to score or pass to somebody else. Yeah you take them away and it's like oh my god. Lebron has to do everything and and you know he's probably getting a little tired and even though he'll never say it the only thing that will make my panic meter go above like three point. Five on a one to ten is if we get news. At davis's injury is lingering or more serious that we thought it was then if they're healthy in the playoffs yeah. Competition in the west is is probably better this year. Particularly if denver finds whatever gear they had going in the bubble. There's going to be a lot of really good teams in the west. You could get the one seed in the west and play the warriors. You could get to play the mad. I mean it's it's just every round is hard there. But yeah i i can't i can't get too worked up about it right now. Yeah the western conference meet
