A Bold Eastern Conference Prediction for 2021
"Right. Okay, let's go to the East and I Toronto have they fallen out of your thing. Now. This is not a check it out. It's all depend on you mad though. They hate monkeys. I'm going to give it to Brooklyn. Number one, right number two. I think Milwaukee close to a similar winning percentage. We saw last year's. The number to write you know, but 3 I'm going to go Miami Miami was fifth last year people forget. So that's a big Improvement to go from victim. I just I'm I don't know. How long would you know about that even Bradley. I think that's a good addition bamas help games healthy. I think he maybe he makes another stride Tyler hero, I think makes another stride Off the Bench Duncan Robinson. I like those guys. Okay, I like those guys are gonna put me on and then you got Jimmy Butler. Who's there? Jimmy Butler still Jimmy, but then you lose Jae Crowder you lose trying to but I like I like Bradley with those shooters that I just mentioned or those scores because he's going to get so many open shots your next until I hear all your next to Duncan Robinson. You can't leave them open. Anyway behind that heart all the money in the world and you got Defenders on the other end. That'll just say like, okay, so all right. That's three four. I'm going Philly Celtics fan. I can't put Boston over Philly. I can't I see. Okay. You got your birth. No, Seth Curry, Danny Green who will defend his ass off on the other end. And then you got it back up for Joel and B-Max Dwight Howard show that he can be serviceable a second Main Service back, but not until you tell me what Simmons is going to do and how he's going to play. I can't I can't buy into that. You're the one who took back is going to make him shoot on that Rhonda Rhonda back is going to make him shoot and we just watch the exhibition game with him. And when he did he's going to marry me pull-up three-pointers. I think one he wasn't even here's the thing about it wasn't even involved in the office because social media will explode the moment. I mean for about 319 about my thing again with filling if I'm feeling I make that move but I think that's what I think that's what hard would be best suited and they you let Simmons Jersey And I think Joel embiid and hardened together. That's a better tandem angry much better time. I don't think I don't think there's another team in the Eastern Conference. That would benefit more than Philly. I just think again to my point the shooters thing which would be more sugar than he had in Houston. If you really think about it, Danny Green Seth Curry. Okay, Ronda Shooters, you got your well and be Turkish bath every once you can bang down low we can defend on the other end. I mean, they're good team here the window what that if if they can find that one piece and that to me that's going to be the key off. They do art and you're saying you say those four right now. What were y'all before? I just Boston here we go. Here we go. Boss is five six. And they're going to be right there to his Toronto Oakland agree. That far behind you sleep on Toronto 7. I'm going to put Indiana and all the depot is the biggest question Market, you know, he's he can talk to you far but I haven't seen them be the same old people since the injury when that dude was a bad man dropping 35, like it was nobody's business. That was all the people I was like man look out. He didn't gave something when we get Kyrie 38 onetime 38 people. Can I read but yeah, so that's a big question mark, but I'll put them in seven eight the last spot. I'm going to put I'm a while maybe now I'm glad they ready Atlanta is going to be maybe praying that could be really really

"You and Jeff worked him for a long time, and Jeff was in Las Vegas, and I think they were staying at Mandalay Bay or something that he's playing poker and and Dwight Howard. Was sitting there playing poker. Not for a lot of money. Just you know, Texas Hold'em $5 table, whatever. And they started talking. And my friend asked Dwight Howard, he goes. How fast are you? It goes. Are you one of the faster guys in league? He goes Well, it goes. I just trust me. I'm not only I'm one of faster guys that league, but I'm also one of the faster guys at this table backwards and he goes. What do you mean? He goes well, if we go to the parking lot You've got to put down $100 that I can beat you running backwards while you run full steam forward and my body said you're on So they went to the parking lot of Mandalay Bay. You know, ready to go and they took off and my body was 20 yards ahead of Dwight and Dwight blew by him, running backwards and finished 20 yards in front of him. Wow. Incredible athlete, you know. Ah, yeah years ago. Yeah. Yeah, I was with Dwight Howard when he was a rookie hours in coaching with the Orlando Magic with Johnny Davis won When we address avoid Howard. Yeah. Could you just You just missed the Michael Jordan air. He wasn't there when you were there were the Bulls know he was not there.

How Will Stan Van Gundy Fit With the Pelicans?
"Was a few weeks ago in the ringer NBA show that at the very tail end of the show I recall you saying. Keep an eye out for Stan van Gundy and New Orleans and since we last spoke That came to fruition Stan Van Gundy was hired by David Griffin and the New Orleans Pelicans I think when this all started with the pelicans ouster of Alvin gentry. Through the. Face Tyler had a former relationship with David. Griffin, we talk about my Tony possibly because he had a former relationship via the Phoenix Suns with David Griffin but they do land on Stan van, Gundy as their next head coach when you saw that news come across the wire, would you think great I'm happy I think he could bring some accountability to the team in terms of how much they need it on the defensive end of the floor they were horrific. On defense this season in San Andy. Of course, infamously famously I'm not sure once said build an effing wall and that the Pelicans need to do and I look forward to see what he can do now that he's back in the NBA but by the way like he failed in Detroit because he was coach. Angie 'em now he's just a coach right and he was always a good coach. He was good basketball coach and it was one of those cautionary tales of. It is two different skill sets number one it also in many cases can be two different motivations right if I am if I am the general manager and the coach now let's say I make a poor signing or a poor usage of money will sometimes I may want to use that guy to prove that I was right about this guy right and I know that you Still get into that with with a front offices and coaches anyway, right in in everybody wants to be responsible everybody wants to be right about the move they made. But when you then you're not doing the scouting of every other team on a regular basis, I know you have scouts you're certainly not doing that with college, but it's just a very hard job to do twofold and. Another cautionary tale of taking that over I mean everybody wants that power but I think we've seen two of these guys. Now fact three of these guys. Now, all of which I think you would say were subpar to very below average in that role but. We respect them as guys that are on the sidelines as basketball coaches. That is their expertise in that is doc rivers who took on that role Tom Thibodeau who took on that role and Stan Van Gundy who took on that role and yet got hired as coaches though it didn't go well at their last stops. I mean doc better than the other two but we thought. Hires because these guys are good basketball coaches who were miscast trying to run everything for sure absolutely and ultimately it's another good opportunity for him when New Orleans area there even though they have Zion, they have ingram granted these a restricted free agent. He'll likely back matched any offer sheet or whatever This is still sort of A. Team right now that can go in many different directions depending on how David Griffin wants to build it out and I look forward to seeing the ways in which Van Gundy, Utilize Zion and the ways in which he tries to get him going off because remember you know before all the three point shooting, we've seen the last ten years or so that has. Exploded with the warriors and the rockets and all these teams shooting lot of threes, the magic, Dwight Howard at center and four shooters around him in the late two thousands with anti head coach and they went to a finals. We're going to be lost to Kobe and the Lakers The had some good run they some really strong teams and in with Williamson. With the New Orleans Pelicans, I know they want to add another they don't want to go like all small Wall. With Zion at the five all the time it's it's just went to work but I, think van Gundy's pasts and what he could do now with this roster, it's kind of exciting to think about the possibilities with the different ways in which they can use ion but most importantly though and again, this is like with all the coaching hires we talk about I am more interested in the personnel changes who they draft, who do they try to trade for? Who Do they try to sign I am WHO's coaching the team, but you know I'm excited to see if they're able to get. Zion, going and creative ways that they weren't able to do as much during the season despite his success he posted up a lot man I. WanNa see some more pick and roll with Zion I wanNA see some more creativity with him, handling the ball and running pick and roll, and that will largely come from other personnel changes that come to the roster that allow that to happen. But Hey, man SVG had success with some different types of teams in the past and I look forward to seeing what he can do here with him, and that team has a good roster they under performed badly. Made sometimes teams underperformed because you look at their roster and you go man aol have the goods like that team underperformed I. Think so too. I think of course it I mean look I mean Lonzo I think Lonzo hit one shot in the bubble well, even though they're young that defense was bad even though they had good individual defenders, they've jrue holiday one of the best perimeter guard defenders, Ingraham and Lonzo. They were good defenders of the Lakers. They were the last two years. They were good. They were not good defenders last season with New Orleans. And Zion I, mean he was horrific. He was so bad on defense. It was it was really sad to watch. This is the guy who is blocking three point shots closing out from the opposite side of the paint at Duke just a year prior, which is why people wonder how much of it was fatigue coming back but season how much of it was the injury limiting him how much of it was effort I? Don't know I don't know what it was but regardless. He stunk on defense, and all of this needs to change next season for this team to be anything that have any chance of actually getting into the playoffs it can't be all

I'm not going coffee. based. It's popping. ps, you know what to do. So the microphone got caught in a couple of locks and. Is that what that sound is honest because it happens every once. So during these. I'm stoked to know what's going on with your microphone well. During the Rona pandemic I've just decided. Just let my hair grow not cutting. They're just letting it grow because I. Want to scare people on the other side speaking of scam by starting to get really long now. Speaking of scare somebody yesterday I went into the store. Heat off so. I! I went into the store, a walking down the aisle. Going down the out, and so I saw a black lady. She was walking towards me and you know so. She was trying to maneuver in the house, so you know I had gotten all the way opponent, but I got to the point we. Just to do it. His. He was like boy. It just fell out laughing I said. Donald Purpose to book you. She was like well. You did I just felt like you know limit I needed to do. Something just can't wait. I will hear you sneezed at her. Facing these debtor. You probably be less scary, pulled a gun on her at. The idea of seizing I'm not super funny at the moment. No, but but it was because she knew that I was messing around because you could tell. The I went to. Get you could tell. It. Seems trying to maneuver through our like. A like a a some sort of obstacle, course our. You don't have to do that I see I'm good I got you? With you in the store or was she keeping her head down? No, she was making eye contact with me. It was it was one of my neighbors out here. Okay, all right. Yeah, sometimes the people who don't make eye contact like. In the grocery store those are my favorite. You can't get it from looking at people. Like you, don't get the wrong for making eye contact, it's okay we can. We can acknowledge each other's presence. There is something odd about grocery stores. I was in I, went to pick up something the other day, and I ran into a a woman here in the community that we've known forever were very good France, but at the dinner a million times, but over the house of many times, and she could get away from me fast enough. I kinda got it because I didn't want them league. It's usually you know you see I. Catch up what's going on, and we're both good good. Okay, see you later at both what the opposite directions as quickly as we can, because it just feels like in the grocery store. You need to get in and get out as quickly as you can. There's no more garing effort. In out with. We'll catch you at six months from now this over six years. Whatever it might be, there's no. We're hanging out over the apples and catching up with. To say Travis. You Know I. Don't even bother checking to see if the fruits or riper died anymore. It go. Dry because. Because no one. Avocado is I. don't care. This is I just grabbed. Go Key nowadays. Gravity go because. No one wants to see you picking over the food. You know looking at it. Turn it around Al. Smelly put it back all. Man. Out? Though so I'm stupid. Key right so. So I noticed as warriors at a grocery store. She one of the plastic bags you know and she's picking up the fruit with the plastic bag using it as a club right well i. have done that, but listen. Here's the funny part, so I notice, she was in front of me in the checkout aisle. She grabbed with our bare hair, so I was look now if you know. With the plastic gloves or the one side, but usually bare hand on the other. You just use bare head. To reason for because the produce thing is always inner pre corona virus. Because you see a pickup, this apple this orange. Put Back. This onion has got a bruise. Put it back and you just start doing the math on. How many people are putting things back and touching that food as never been a great seed? Liked. It were far more cautious in the produce department that we've been in the past. It has admit a great seed, but at least you would take it. You will take the fruits whole take. It. Refigerator or at least. We'll take that to it so. You. Look at it now. Picking over it without the glove, or with even with the glove on taking the bag into it, and I've done that many times in it. I do like you said with the bear him, but it's mine. See what I'm saying. Be Looking at it and then put it back without without something on my hands, so I'm okay with the Lady Da Because that's I've done that in his mind now so I could catch you with my. I fondle by fruit as much as I. Do whatever their mind grapes I could however I want to touch. We talked a lot about it yesterday right there. The snitch line in.

For not wearing a mask I mean does that..

"Woo-hoo Woo. There are great. There's great news that we found out yesterday. And that is is the Dwight Howard has decided to come and enter the bubble in Orlando with his Laker teammates that the Lakers are going to have who I would argue is their third most important player to try to go win. You have to Dwight Howard is going to come back to the Lakers employ for them in the Moose. That's an argument, right? I. Don't think you have to argue that if you if you've been watching Lakers and you've been watching basketball. You certainly know that based on what he's given us that he is the third most important player when on the floor will braun in ad at the Games. I mean that's pretty clear. Its beak time for him to join the Lakers and say join us in Orlando, but joined Lakers Orlando because they certainly need him We were all trying to figure out okay. What's going to happen if he decides not to play where they're going to get that extra big that they need from you, you know they're not gonNA. All of a sudden extend. Javale McGee's minutes. So we were sitting back, hoping in somewhat praying that he would wind up plan, but it had to be a right situation. Clearly, it was the right situation you know. Got It worked out with the family situation. He also has decided to donate twenty nineteen twenty twenty season paycheck. Calls. So. He got all of those things. Ready to go also has his sights set on the Lakers getting the championships. Is An opportunity for him to do multiple things that really helps his legacy now that he's thinking about legacy, but at the end of the day. You know that's which reflect on your deathbed. How did you impact the world you know? How did you impact the people in your life? You know moments that you wish you would be able to do over again and. Has An opportunity to get the rain. To go along with the hall of fame career. He gets an opportunity to continue to work. In this effort at its foundation, Twelve was started in twenty eleven. This is another chapter in his foundation in terms of using this money to go and try to help in terms of social justice. So he gets, this is a this is a huge move for him, and for someone who's essentially ran Outta town or was chased out of town on. How want to characterize it because he was too immature? What I see now is a grown ass man, making big boss decisions, and is always awesome to see people mature in real time. We forget. He came out of high school. He was a child, basically one thousand, nine hundred. Let's eighteen. Starting to Lee and now in his thirties, father. Philanthropist and the champion. That's a nice run. That's a really good run. I'm happy I really am. I am too, and I want to make sure that I make this clear I am not trivializing the decision that he had to make an incredibly difficult decision and multifaceted like you're talking about so legacy on two fronts. It's legacy in basketball in its legacy and did I make the world a better place on my time here and that was what he was debating deciding whether or not he wanted to come back that being said. This is a huge deal for the Lakers as a basketball team. Because we talked about it yesterday that this is their best shot to win a championship with Lebron James that everything that could be going right from a basketball perspective really. has you go back to pre pandemic? You go back to the way that they were playing when they beat Milwaukee they. They beat the clippers they were rolling in. The is at a high level Anthony Davis high. Level Dwight is playing at a high level. You've got all these guys just clicking and now all of a sudden when you go into the bubble and restart the season, and you go into the postseason, the Lakers at least on paper or more or less the. The same team that they were going in I know that every Bradley has opted out, but that is a piece that has for more easy to replace the Dwight Howard. We've talked about their best shot. Their best shot is still right now. Had he decided to opt out? They are one of the teams that has a chance as opposed to the team. Team that you have to be. We don't know what next year is going to look like. We don't know what Lebrons GonNa look like Anthony. Davis or any of the other variables that everything that could have happened that good point in the laker direction continues to do that with this decision from back just purely basketball. This is a huge deal for them. It is a huge deal and. Look at Frank Vogel Press Conference. You look at. We're rob Pelinka spoke, you could certainly hear their voice that they had deep concern on whether or not Dwight would be joining team because they didn't have an answer a better yet. They elected to have an answer for the replacing him, but they had an answer immediately for Avery Bradley. In so because of that it told you right did and they're that they're holding out. With hope that he makes the decision to join them in Orlando. Or that's the whole thing, right? It's. It's so funny that. What was seen as a move for desperation, right by a lot of people, not us because you know we're. We're sensible individuals, but a lot of people thought you know, bring Dwight. Howard and joking Noah were acts of desperation. And I advocate originally. You guys know this for joking. Perfectly happy perfectly happy with two white, and you look at the two favorites, and they both have joking, but it's on the squad, so it's just absolutely hilarious when you think about where. Dwight was at the beginning of the season with a contract that said basically prove it. And now it's we can't do.

That's a complicated question. You've seen Iran later hasn't. Let's listen to this quote. Here's a quote from one of the workers by the name of Foxy. Two exits. Is that. Is that one of the workers in the actual Astra Nam or somebody who works in edge today yes. Yes, foxy rents, a room in the broth about side of the Red Light. Just this is what she said.

Light district and the workers are making sure you okay, it's not the other way around. You good, you good, okay! Cool! Come on you kiss and that's another one. Of the things I just can't I can't believe it, I just. Can't believe this his. Bucket lists like listen. She quote most of all most of us will avoid face to face so no kissing in quite I feel like this is heading the direction. That's not going to serve any of us well. That's breaking news. You've ever had A. Book your flight. Taking care of I don't know if they're letting Americans in good. We will definitely see pretend I'm African. Good luck if you can get in there. The Lakers are going to go to Orlando and they still don't know about. Dwight Howard Dwight Howard is roster spot will not be filled. They're not going to do what they did with Avery Bradley who decided not to go. They took and gave Jr Smith. That roster spot to hear. Front. Vogel say they're GONNA. Wait as long as they can't keep that spot open as long as they can, so dwight has an option to come in. As? They should communication with white the whole way with the supportive of phone calls and text messages and You know we don't know what the level of participation is GonNa be yet He wants to play We're hopeful that he's able to join us. He has an extenuating circumstance that he's working with the League on in terms of What that is ultimately going to look like We're hopeful and optimistic that you'll be Joyce. Hopeful optimistic. That's the part that I keep focusing on that they are hopeful and optimistic to me beans that they're not going to fill that spot because they believe he's GonNa. Come and play basketball for the Lakers in the thing is is is they're doing the right thing by waiting? And CNN, but also helping him through this situation where you could see where a lot of other teams with some of the guys aren't wasn't really. Out Front in terms of talking about the issues that they were having, it was almost like they left those players out on an island. By! Themselves make that decision. The Lakers seemed like they're trying to help to white. Make the decision along with the NBA on. What's best for him and his family? It is absolutely. Harper. Situation that he's trying to deal with in the midst of everything else. And then there's just a legacy of his career number. One overall draft pick multiple time all star one defensive player of the year multiple. Times later be rebounds Multiple Times, and yet somehow the sense that he's a hall of Famer. That disappointed us. Almost two lines Vince Carter when you think about everything that Vince Carter could do physically definitely a hall of fame, but somehow the career ended with a year, but this is Dwight Howard opportunity to enter the L. but part of his career. Because the to win a championship. Make no get make notice about at this hour may not be the leader, but he'll be a big part of the reason. Why so this is a him on. On the coat tail. This is him being part of the mix and he could. He can wipe away the last few years of random sort of behavior, an odd stays on teams if he's able to win a chip. You don't want that to be the focus. Because what he's dealing with is important is more important, and it's it's. It's hard to remember that sometimes some glad to see that the Lakers are keeping that into four. I, mean look the idea. The Lakers probably don't win without him. There are other good teams. Milwaukee's a good team. The Clippers are team. The Lakers still have Lebron James and Anthony Davis. And so you always a chance, it's not it doesn't go to zero, but it's GONNA be tough climb regardless I mean you're going up against some pretty good teams and did. Did, this is this is I think what you're getting at the idea of winning a championship. This year is not just Oh, okay, we're good team. We're going to be one of the final four. Maybe one of the final two. We've got a shot at this. There are decisions to be made. There are thoughts that are gonna be racing through everybody's head both. Related both social justice related there are so many different variables and then the basketball itself is just going to be so different because you're planning vacuum. If you're used to doing something in front of a ton of people getting feedback from a of people and having people. You through moments the energy, the emotion, the adrenaline, whatever it is and all of a sudden. There's none of that. And over by the way I might not have. This guy might not have that guy. We got a different guy in the roster. This is going to be one of the more difficult championships to win for everybody, and then the Lakers losing arguably third most important guy. It's about as tough as you could ask. It is in Janas is right. This is GonNa be a tough situation because it's not. You're not sleeping own bid. You're not driving to your own stadium. There's no home court advantage in this situation. There's no fans in this situation. You clearly can hear everything on the court going on when a person says weakside help slide. Close all the different stuff that you get in an empty arena or practice sessions. You'RE GONNA be able to hear it on the floor. Clear is not going to be a OH. I thought I heard this. I thought I heard that. No, you're going to be able to hear things clear so as you go. Make it that much harder. Defenders told the do something it's not. Not I throw up my hands because I didn't hear you know you hear him, so you're going to be able to get over there fast enough to now make a do change changes shot is just going to be one of those weird situations where things are going to be tough, and you gotta figure out how to fight through it to ultimately win a championship any in. You know it's so. As such an amazing time right, so we have. Leaked, trying to restart the pandemic, you'd have the NBA in particular trying to figure out how to keep the momentum going in terms of social justice, and not had focused being turned away. Then yesterday, we had this amazing conclusion to a story with Maya Moore. Who was by far the WNBA best player left her career to try and help an innocent black man who was. Falsely Accused of a crime and was sentenced to jail for fifty years and yesterday she was there when he finally got out of prison. His case was overturned. She helped. Push and get over it, and it's just a such an incredible time in this country, and it's amazing to see sports figures from a variety of different ways be in the forefront of this whether marching.

"dwight howard" Discussed on Book of Basketball 2.0
"It's not as easy people think I'm very loyal and I've always put loyalty realty above everything. He was traded the Lakers months later because he decided to push his way out remember he wanted to be in Brooklyn and then it led to all these different things. Let's let's stay where you're at though now on the basketball thing because when you first watch him you went. Oh my God like it was the Okafor. Dwight Howard thing and OKAFOR was established guy. This great Yukon run. He's a little. I wonder size but I don't know that we were still always so convinced that it was going to be the high school kid coming out. I know I have a column where I was pretty strongly on Okeafor over Howard. Our we watched that draft together and they did and Bass of Orlando for taking White Howard because there had been so many high school bus rescue. Yeah we're still betty. Currie sure right. We're still kind of in that mode and you're like how can you not take this. Okay for guys. who like seems like he's everything a team would want like well because he's older and you know we didn't know about the injury stuff back then but he just was was undersized if his back stuff doesn't go I still think that's a defensible? Pick like his back went out on them. But then Dwight has has this star. Were you start thinking what can what can this guy become and in the beginning especially with somebody who's like he's really young to be entering the league year like okay. The rebounding's there the way he could switch smaller guys. I mean the defensive rating numbers for those three or four years in a row are incredible member. Initially he was a power forward and it was a question based on whether his body would fill out enough to center and then all of a sudden one of those seasons seven Holy Shit. I never really kind of understood that 'cause the shoulders were there and I thought like okay. This guy is GonNa GonNa get huge at some point because you're still so young in the whole thing but what what became so glaring in the thing that got in his way through it all and Jeff Van Gundy really revealing about this when he does Lakers games now because he's talking essentially about what he and Stan would talk about. Dwight was like I wanna be all of these other things and I don't get to be but it's like man. Guess what at the end of the game with two minutes to go like at least shack had moves like he missed free throws but he had moves. You don't have any moves in his great is his power was in his explosion. There's different levels of athlete at that size and he was never this fluid dribble and move guy now like there were just all these things it was always choppy. It was always very robotic and it wasn't smooth in it. Never got any better and his his star grew. The game. Didn't even catch up with it and that had to be like honestly. I think that's the origin of all of this frustration. I'm glad you mentioned the Jeff Van Gundy because I I probably heard the same thing that you heard just recently. He just did it. I just did it and similarly on the winging it podcast Vince. Carter had Lamar Odom on and Lamar Odom talked about. When the Lakers were are against The magic and It was at the beginning of game one. He shared this anecdote where he looked across the court and saw Dwight Howard. And you know they were kind of sizing up up and Dwight Howard was yuck ended up a little bit trying to make jokes with Andrew Bynum right and Lamar Odom is like maybe for each other. uh-huh we'll right so that that is a kind of a curious thing. Because if the Lakers on boarded that bit of data about Dwight Howard his his killer instinct is maturity level and still went ahead and traded for him. But that's different podcast. Probably we talked about this and A second podcast that we're doing but it during nine I wrote It was the first time I started to wonder if he could actually get there and I wrote only in the past three weeks the desk. Start thinking you know what he might get there. I wouldn't rule it out now. If we can only find him a low post mover three. I think those first five years we just assumed the offensive game went unfolding better and it just was what it was but even van Gundy during that finals. He says during game. Four if he ever play because Howard's awesome in that game for and van he says if he ever plays with this energy and passion consistently with his strength and athleticism NBA. You have no chance. and Ah felt like that was in play. I would say till his body started breakdown. When here's the Lakers? And maybe even that last Orlando season to where at some point you you just kind of our who you are especially as a basketball player and especially as a center. You're not you're not really adding a shitload in your late. Twenties except for three point shot which was never happened with them. But at some point you are well just after awhile. You just knew like yeah. You'RE GONNA catch you're going to be on the on the low block You know I don't remember. I don't doubt they did much elbow stuff with Dwight Howard where he was actually better as a cutter like he was better as somebody that was cutting off of like a weak side action or something because then once he got it and there's momentum it was over but he wanted all of those touches and he actually had a ton of post touches and he was bad at it. Well you think it was. Because he's coming out of the generation Shen of these awesome centers that all had low post games except from Dumbo. And that's what a senator was posted. Do but really. He was the perfect center for what was about to come. And I don't think anyone realized that. So that's an in-between he's a t he catches a tweet era. Ten years later people are just like dude. We're just putting you in screen roles us. You're never were never post Yup. It's never happening. We're we're we're screening and rolling and you're GonNa get twenty five points a game on dunks. Just trust us. He added. Because there's another line that I had in in doing this where it's like almost lost in in transition in that. If this were twenty years ago Dwight probably would have gotten huge money just a couple years ago because they would have already healthy back is good and we're just gonNA throw it in the low post to them the entire time yet. He just. There's no number that tells you who's good at and then when you start talking in New Brunswick the good thing in the intro the assists his assist numbers are awful. Gather under two minutes and it's not just hey. He had more assists than you guys are giving them credit for I went and compare them to other assist ratio guys. He was always in the advance. You know assist broader possession. He's in the single digits. His whole career like a couple of years rees at nine Akeem had some really nice years. I mean embiid's almost at twenty percent assist ratio your years into his career. So if you look at like how embiid catches and still reads and the you know another reason why embiid is better and embiid has more athleticism for his size like I know people will descend like what are you talking about like Embiid is smoother than Dwight Howard could ever ever dream. Yeah but before and bead was still playing we're Howard was was a was a post up guy with no post Moose who would didn't realize he was the only one they didn't see the same the right player in the mirror who wasn't happy and then felt like I needed change and you go. No you need to change. And he never was going to. I think you're speaking to one of the core truths about Dwight Howard. Though and it has to do with the era in which he arrived as a high school kid into the League and the League not really being ready to take high school kids with that kind of talent and help them learn the game of basketball like and the game of of life like he he just came in at kind of a bad time and so we saw I think stunted maturity from him that really impacted his career it it had a noticeable market impact on You know how how everybody regarded him and it put a ceiling. That didn't have to be there. Are you blaming Kelvin. Cato Tony Not right now. Well as you say the the runway was opened for him to dominate for ten years. But there's there's another guy when you were talking about that I think there's another emotionally stunted guy with all this time Darko. Darko was ridiculously talented. Peaches could just see. Didn't have upstairs in the never had it from the story was able to get a little more. No you're right because Darko Heard a story like they saw him cruising around sick. SUV like right when he started up. And somebody in the Pistons. Do you have licensees like what it's like dude. You got to get a license. Yeah I don't know I've heard that version of the story over and over again and now it sounds a little bit like I mean you. Can you can do this with anybody. I which side of the story you want to tell you could go back. You'd go the. NBA Wasn't ready to accept him in a new way as opposed traditional way. It wasn't Aaron Hernandez's fall right right. I also can't think of anybody that's going to be such a lock hall of fame for the second half of his career. The last seven stops prior to this Lakers one where everybody wanted him out of there as soon as he got there. Okay let's go through the list Orlando at the end. Wanted him out of there even though they did that fake was the driving into the airport. He was in la one year. Okay now they still wanted how to keep him. But this is more about it happens again in Houston a team going. We don't WanNa pay this guy but we want to keep the asset slot open. It's a little bit like the Golden State Warriors General Russell like we also is not perfect but if we lose this law that we can't pay anybody and this is a few trade and even if you don't like Kobe. I loved Kobe Dwight because it was Kobe. Basically telling the world everything you think about. Dwight is true. Well dates back to the. Oh eight Olympic team which we're GONNA get to later right. He goes to Houston in its immediately. He and hardened different camps and stories. That if you show up to the rockets like you gotta figure out who you're aligning yourself with and Dwight still mad that harden and maybe Dwight was early on the heart and shoots too much call all..
NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances
"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.

He is widely liked liked but remember when I played with Kobe and we hated each other. Let's do that again exciting. I just don't think he wants to ask them himself. Getting Defense to try

"dwight howard" Discussed on The NBA Show
"The rest of your life and it's only three years so you're going to have options. Hopefully when you're twenty eight all right well let me just say i am a lot more on the fence than you are because because yeah it's just a three year deal but these three years that you've got to build with those two guys in mind so he has to be healthy and he has to be good for you if you are investing vesting that kind of money and he's never played over twenty six minutes a game and he is only started sixty one games in three seasons in the n._b._a. And so i am i'm a little more not like this is a sure thing to me but i mean as it were yeah. You can't screw this up. This is your chance to build with two big stars and if you signed a guy you're spending seventy million dollars that can only play you know x. amount of games james and only start x. amount of games for you. You know these next couple of years. You've really screwed it up. Yeah you're right. It's not a sure thing but how many things are. They're really in for brooklyn. Like what else does that have been injured in college and then during their n._b._a. Career already you mean there are there lie guys have been more healthy than curiously burt. Let's be honest but the thing is is like for brooklyn. What else are you going to do next summer. Now you have avert locked walked up. Joe harrison are in principle. It's going to be free agents. Those are both guys that you realistically would like to keep well. You're not going to have cap space. All brooklyn's would would likely have next summer when lavar hits free agency is probably the mid level exception so now they'll probably be a tax paying team so that will be a little bit less than what it was before for brooklyn. I think if anything this increases your flexibility because you don't have the money to sign a guy in free agency anyway by now you have a guy locked up on a team. I deal a guy that you want to keep you wanna. Keep them but you have the flexibility moving forward because he's locked up <hes> dwight howard signed with the the los angeles lakers. Go i mean this is terrible. I i can't even believe anybody justifying justifying this like we talk ourselves into you know i did this with carmelo. Obviously i was right. You're wrong when it was the houston thing. I mean we we have a track record of guys making teams worse and carmelo had made every team he played on worse for the last couple of years and that is what it has befell dwight howard going back to and he's been put on really good teams really good teams that underachieved and it's like oh we'll figures pseudo and if he does this and he does that and he does all of these things that he has shown no ability to be able to do then he'll be okay and then they bring up his numbers for for some rat team he played for the last year like that matters and you've got all the off the court stuff where it was just all kinds of drama and i just <hes> that is not what i would add to the mix. If i was the lakers you have one guy out there. That is an amazing locker room guy in joking noah woah that you worked out and another that is a pitiful locker room guy in dwight howard and you went the route of dwight howard and i just i i cannot understand stand it to save my life. Have you seen any of those twitter threads that people are putting out about how dwight howard loses twenty pounds every summer and how dwight howard lord every summer changes his perspective about his role on a team. Oh yeah have you seen either of those. They've been pretty good. I like the one from sean keane.

He reportedly lost twenty three pounds in two thousand seventeen..

You mentioned the deal the details of that deal give them an opportunity to get rid of him really fast it sure does this is this is interesting. I don't remember a lot. The deals like this and i think that shows you that there are a little sceptical about him long-term where he is physically and mentally but they need someone there. You know that that boogie signing was a big deal like kind of shape. The roster gave him scoring and passing underrated passer stretches the floor boogies you you know when you look at the roster without boogie. That's a big that's a big downsizing if dwight howard can't be what they wanted to be in the end up dropping him. Do you think think they'll look like a joke noah to pick them up. If only basketball skill was the requisite and and you don't want to institute multiple offices for guys is gonna play limited roles so if you take javale mcgee out you wanna put somebody s version of him whites more more as such unlike noar. I feel who would actually fit better even though he doesn't catch lobs block south because he has really good ball skills skills screen roll dribble handoffs hollow passing that type of thing so i i would not be surprised based on the minutes. He played last year and memphis. He doesn't get another opportunity. I believe that he will but the lakers opportunity with just better fit for the white light based on the dynamics of the roster construction so one thing i found interesting the news story in the midst of angeles retirement dominating.

He will develop a reputation as a quiet guy in that locker at least for the beginning like you need to make sure if dwight that you're not even doing things accidentally really that rub people the wrong way.

"That would be even worse because to me. Dwight is a little little broken down and he can talk all he wants about figuring it out and getting it. I just don't think he ever got it because i don't think he has it in him. Whenever drove rogue shannon sharpe whatever that that thing that pump was inside you the energy pump and it pumps your mouth but again dwight wasn't born with it he was born with extraordinary shoulders and he looks the part either. Hey is he a physical specimen and he can roll out of bad and get you those numbers utah his career seventeen thirteen and two blocks. We go there right there right. Now i guarantee you. We'll champion. I will guarantee not he would be an energy drain on this basketball team because he just doesn't know how to take it that seriously. He never worked hard enough on his game to become anything more more than a late game liability because he had no real post move where you could say. We need a bucket list. Dump down to dwight and let him get a bucket. The way damarcus configure oughta get bucket dwight couldn't do it and all you have to do is fouled white and sitting in the free throw line because he's gonna make one or two if you're lucky right so again is that worth rim protection and physical presence getting the bank. No okay who beat the b. You joke came. No yeah yeah so keam. Noah energy is legal here yup legal. I hear all right well good. It's not legal within the league. Supposedly they all the time right but he plays hard he plays hard every second he would embrace that control of coming in for twelve minutes a game and just lighting it up just going as hard as he could and crashing and banging and grabbing rebounds sounds and blocking shots he can do that and he's a seventy percent free throw shooter so to me on the energy level on the commitment level on the emotional level. I'd rather there have him coming off. My you know what if i'm the thing about signing him the a._d. Bron y'all need to get on the plane and and and i need to talk to you. <hes> you get a sense.

I'm pretty sure that you're going to be the starting sooner because he played big like we had one show so you're telling me that dwight howard after he's made a grand total of two hundred thirty five million dollars in his career which which is second only to lebron and chris paul among current players. He's going to embrace the role of being a minimum wage backup player. I just thought i what is how do you really hold on skill. They're not very many teams that will allow you to talk to a current player on their roster. So what has memphis telling you. What are they telling the white house. Talk to anybody else. They wanna talk to him can talk to give if i got a girl and i don't care if you go here die with him. I just told you. I brought you a really serious somebody else. If you like cool witty dwight howard just in order got dumped by atlanta charlotte washington washington yeah atlanta charlotte wash and in memphis memphis basically say look here bro y'all go here. We go pay today. I'll go on go ahead. Well how well i don't know. Did you have an open relationship. Oh no no news out of the nine. Hey look operates. Give them my women's basketball one one on one and it lewd driven as possible really yeah never heard all all they don't open never grandfather from grandma and grandpa hope. I can leave it on that. He's if you signed dwight howard. I say good good luck tuck. Oh so that's the missing issue over how we'll give him.

Is Dwight Howard Really a Viable Option for the Lakers at Center?
"Dwight howard is still on everybody's radar about maybe coming here to l. a. to replace demarcus cousins here's brian windhorst talking about how likely dwight's return to l. a. might be. I don't think it's a very likely marriage. I think the lakers right now are doing their due diligence on players unavailable centers joke him noah's another guy they've looked got and there's a process because dwight howard is a member of the memphis grizzlies he can't have free agent discussions with the other team so there has to be processed even have a conversation so that definitely taken place but dwight howard has been on four different teams in the last four years does not count the brooklyn nets who cut him and it may not glue the memphis grizzlies who may away the cut him if he can find a place to go well. I would imagine the memphis grizzlies would send a car to take him to the airport there. They're not going to be worried. I owe a the hands off dwight. You gotta make that he's our guy. They've probably got him at the airport the bus station or whatever it is they're going to do to get him to come to l._a. Lay the question is whether or not he's the best option here in l._a. Here's one horse talking about why he does not think it's a great fit. The lakers are in need of somebody who can be healthy and give them minutes minutes and that doesn't fit dwight howard or joe kim no art this point of their careers but i understand why the lakers are have those names on the list. I think this is unlikely. I i believe the lakers. Coach has won a younger more active player at this point in their careers a younger more active players sure but i don't know how often younger active are they walking around. I i was gonna say where where are they well. We did a poll of course obviously yesterday. Rods groups on twitter at which big man should the lakers sign and we put dwight howard or or noah it was fifty one percent a very close vote to dwight howard fifty one percent and i think you made a great point in earlier. Hey what do you have to lose. There's no risk you you know how much money and like you see one of these the n._b._a. Execs say hey they'll sign and if it doesn't work out just cut me. You don't have to give him a bunch of money. You don't get the grizzlies aren't gonna ask for draft picks to get dwight howard memphis. You just need to get him here and if it doesn't work and if at any point anthony davis or lebron or anybody else says you know what this guy i these gone. He's gone the very next day. There's no investment before when you're dealing with his deal and to get dwight is almost entirely unique. We've seen guys go from well-liked guys two guys that were less.

"I mean, shoot, twenty game. I mean, any check was in would get extended by at least half an hour just for his free throws a nightmare. A hold on loading. We're doing some research shack missed over five thousand free throws in his career, see how he they make. Hold on. I'm going to guess less than five thousand. If shack even goes fifty percent, that's twenty five hundred extra points, but he shot fifty percent. He needs to any five percent. Don't do math. Don't do math, twenty five hundred more Ben Wallace. He means he's ten thousand. So for somebody who shot over twelve hundred free throws in their career. Ben Wallace is the worst reader shooter an MBA. Oh, yeah, dude. He is number two shack is number three. Jordan's number four. Chris Dudley is number five. Howard Dwight Howard is in the honorable mentions. Honorable mentions for a terrible thing to be mentioned about. He's number number six. Didn't Dudley shoot threes. No, no, that's Jared. All too. I was thinking too. So, yeah, I'm just thinking it's viable option. I don't know. Free throws are mainly mental. They are. I know people people don't like to believe that, but free throws a mainly a mental thing. There are one hundred percent mental. They're not one hundred percent. Some people just don't have the mechanics don't. How could they be one hundred percent mental? Can you take the ball? There's there's there's third grade girls that can make it from the free throw line. I know and probably shoot her hand. It's the same thing every single time and you're, it's an uncontested shot. It's a repeatable motion. It's like golf, you know, one plays defense against you golf, but yet people are shady golfers. The cat play consistently that speaking of really high percentage of something. So I've actually, I think fish Lee made the decision. Michael Thomas is better than Antonio Brown now, and you guys can go crazy, whatever. But do you know that he is caught forty two or forty? Four targets this year. He's a stud. That's unbelievable. Shack shot five point, five percent better from the field. Then he did from the free throw line. Oh my good. God have mercy. All you do is present from the free throw line for his career shot fifty seven percent from the field fifty eight percent from the field. Basically. That's pretty crazy. I'm surprised even shot that low. When did he actually miss like dunks it every time. Andre Jordan. The most missed free throws in an NBA game at twenty three today lost three j. lost that. Frank, I'm going to tell you. That's absurd. It just seems like such a correctable issue that's right there in front of their face. They kind of have to do something that people may give them a lot. I'm with you more. People should attempt to do it. There's no question about it Dorset. Let's see what you shoot out of one hundred free throws. Other than those big fucks. That out. Actually I think you'd shoot under fifty. I guarantee you cheat about fifty percent, dude. This is much. This is no. No. This is podcast material. We got to see what door shoots out of one hundred does next time he's out in Charlotte or next time around Charlotte, shoot over fifty percent from the free throw line.

"Oh, right. Welcome back to the g. SMC basketball podcast. We spent that first segment talking about the NBA MVP. So now we move on. We're gonna talk about the white Howard. Dwight Howard needs more respect. I don't understand why or how Dwight Howard has become the most hated player in the NBA Dwight Howard's not even a favorite player of mine, but I don't get why you guys hate them so much like I need someone to help me out with that. But I mean, the only reason why I'm bringing Dwight Howard was is because of the fact that his trainer came out and said that Dwight is trying to become his own version of k. d. n. Anthony Davis wants to play till forty. And NBA. Twitter, absolutely. Erupted. I mean, they were clowning Dwight Howard to no end because of this. And like I said, I don't get why you guys hate them so much. And I say you guys because it seems like Dwight Howard is universally hated player in the NBA. I've never understood it. I mean, Lakers fans hate him because he couldn't play with Kobe. But I mean, let's not act like Kobe was the easiest person to play with. All right. Playing with kobes, not for everyone. But I mean, we can do Ron Cording the Laker fans. So. I mean, let's talk about this whole Dwight Howard becoming Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant. Dwight howard. Is a very good player and as a definite pro Basketball Hall of Famer like it's not up for debate if you don't think Dwight Howard is like, if you think he's not a hall of Famer, then you're just wrong. That's all it is like like there's no arguing. It's gonna be a hall of Famer. I mean, is it anytime all star leading blocks twice five time, all defensive team, three time defensive player of the year eighty eight time. All NBA team led the league in rebounding five times twelve and four thousand five rookie team. So he gets team to the finals when let's not forget not many teams are able to lead, they're not many centers are able to lead their team to the finals. Why did that two thousand nine. And I think the problem with white Howard isn't sinisterly Dwight Howard prom, but more so us problem. We look at Dwight Howard, and I mean the whole thing was candy. Return back to his Orlando, Magic form. With Orlando. He was averaging about near twenty. In. Thirteen. Fourteen rebounds a game. Since he's left or Landau, he's averaged. About sixteen seventeen points. In about twelve rebounds, that's not bad numbers. Those aren't bad numbers at all..
