Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals
"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited

"But what year But to your point, there is no question that the I'm going to relish the opportunity to play LeBron James, the NBA Finals like Erik Spoelstra, I don't think you ever got enough credit for the job to get coaching the heat with the Big three. And you know, getting that team before finals and winning two titles obviously have to have the players. But Alex is a phenomenal coats. And I think getting a chance to go up against LeBron You know he's going to relish the opportunity. Try to beat him in a Siri's and look like you said. You know, I'm in the same levels. Pat Riley. I see him in Andy Ellsberg and Alonzo Mourning and the heiress to the owner. You know, they're sitting and watching every one of these games and It's ah It's it's You know this This organization is connected from top to bottom. You know those guys even though they're not down in the bubble with the Laker, or with the heat, you know they they are. They're in prints are all over this organization and you know, collectively as a group. No, This is a franchise where all these people have been here for 10 15 2025 30 years and also there's so much institutional knowledge and, frankly, outside of the players on the court, Virtually every other person who works with the heat still works there from when LeBron is their most MBA teams. You go 56 years later. Everybody's different, right? This is that is not all the heat on they have to. They are lifers through and throughs. They all remember like you said, the feeling that I had when LeBron left, and I think that would love nothing more than to win the franchises forthe championship ahead of LeBron winning 1/4 in his career. I think we know and expect that LeBron always rises to the occasion and the finals. We seen him kind of put teams on his back and do it himself many times before. I think a D is going to step up and play some really good ball in the finals, but Who could be the third potential role player on this Lakers team for so long. I thought it could be Cal Cosma, but he's he's been missing at times, and then he shows up in time. So who could you really try to look too on that Lakers squad? Step up and deliver. Well, I agree with you that most people think it's Cruz's mo. I frankly don't think he's good enough to be that guy on a regular basis. But the thing about this Laker team is that it's kind of always been a different guy through this run right in that, and that's really to me. The key to their success is that their collective group of role players I stepped up, but you saw Dwight Howard have a huge game in Game four. True, so I have a huge game in Game five. You saw Raison Rondo of huge game. I think it was a game one. We had 16 and nine or 19 and ate off the bench. Whatever he had. They've had no potatoes. Caldwell focus that a bunch of games we sent a bunch of shots. They have kind of different guys step up for them at different times, and I think that is going to be the thing that they win this championship. I'm going to need that to continue in the MBA files. You can assume maybe is going to be great. You can assume that LeBron is going to be great, but for them to win games against the spiny team. They're gonna also need some other guy or guys to step up in a place and make shots when game to game. The way they're built. It's not that it's going to be the same guy every game, but they need somebody to do it every game they try to win. If they want to get these former victories they need to win a championship. That's Tim Bon Temps and ESPN MBA writer and Tim. We kind of gave our gut initial prognostications right after the heat blows out the Boston Celtics, so we're gonna put you on the spot here is we get you out of here. What happens in the MBA finals? Who was the champion? How many games is a take? My initial thought is Lakers in seven, but I'm probably going to go back and forth on it. A bunch of Miami..
"erik spoelstra" Discussed on WEEI
"Was I was up here and yes, that would do it. He was not a good coach, LeBron pumping and Erik Spoelstra and now he could God by the time If this team completes this like they'll probably I would imagine they lose to LeBron in the finals. You're making a finals run here. You're not Gregg Popovich. And you won't be Greg Popovich. But I think that Erik Spoelstra's exposing that Brad Stevens may very well not be God's gift to coaching basketball the way that some people see it might very well be Erik Spoelstra because it's one thing to have LeBron and to deal with LeBron. It's a whole other thing to keep that team competitive and keep them on the right track. I mean, they have guys that you know Jimmy Butler, and there's a lot of people that people don't pay attention to on that team. They pay attention to the Celtics and Tatum and they will pay attention to the heat the way they used to. Certainly would I mean, this is this is Good team basketball that's being played here, folks. The heat are the example. Boy, This is Thisa might end up being a segment later on in a couple of weeks or so, but they are the example of team oriented basketball. When they were the team that got the whole thing started. They might be the new San Antonio Spurs. Jimmy Butler's a great player, and there's nobody. Who's Tim Duncan, Who's the news? A top five forward in the league leaks history. There's no nobody like that. This is this is something else just putting the drama. On those guys making when you're making teams consecutively frustrated up where there's infighting, both with the Bucks and Celtics. That means that you are doing things that they simply aren't willing to do because they're all good, But they're all good basketball players. Nobody came up out of nowhere in a seven game series in surprised anybody. That's why they're seven games because you're proving who is the better team? Over all, you could do it on one day. You really can't. You really should be able to do it over a seven game series. Every now and then it happens, but it really shouldn't be that way. So you're supposed to be exposing each other. And I think the heater showing that they're willing to do things that other teams aren't so I say, Yes, that's a shoot. Shoot next. All right Candy after winning Game one of the Western Conference finals last night. The postgame discussion from the Lakers perspective was about Anthony Davis is great game where the Lakers are three wins away from their first finals appearance in a decade. Instead, it was about the MVP voting for Johannes onto Cooper won a second get second MVP award, and LeBron James finished second, garnering just 16 out of the 101 vote. The worst thing that could ever happen to the Denver Nuggets is that they had not. If you're the Denver Nuggets, you got to look around. Are you serious? Really? That's gonna wait until after the season. Go ahead with the question, you know, could know. Waited a week for that one. So work or shoot the MVP voting was accurate and didn't slight LeBron at all. Oh, that's a that's a work. That is 100% work. I was but a whole statement on it earlier, and I know maybe you were driving in their hickey. I think we're tired of LeBron. In this still goes back, and I don't mean to put everything that Michael, I know you guys were tired of it, but I have to. I think it goes back to that conversation because with Michael Remember, Michael had serious tragedy in his life. America rallied around him. He went, he played baseball. We found that to be interesting. Then he came back way wanted to see Could he beat Houston? He lost when he first came back to Orlando in the playoffs. Could he actually make that team what it was before anyone? Three straight championships? It was interesting and remember, he was playing veterans of Karl Malone and John Stockton. We're trying to get over on him, and that was an incredible team. So it was always fresh with Michael. Because there were guys that were in certain cities that we rooted foreign against. We all respected Because Ewing stayed in New York with John Switch with John Starks. You had the Pistons at the very beginning. Isiah Thomas. You had the Utah Jazz, which I just talked about. There were guys who were in places there were their most of their careers have not their entire careers, and these were fights Indiana and Reggie Miller. These were fights and we picked our sides and it was fun now with LeBron he gets this thing started, and we just blame why we don't like basketball anymore on LeBron. And every time we go to pass the torch to somebody else, and the Wii is the media, we is the American sporting public. Even We want to pass the torch to Kevin. Kevin was man enough to take the torch, Not We try to pass the torch to James Harden. That's a big fat no. Same Lillard's fun but same blue. It's never going to get to the finals in Portland that that's no hate to say it. Who else do we try to do all that we'll try to do with science will try to do with Luca. You name? A cavalcade of Johannes Johannes accepted this from his couch last night. No, that's no big fat. No. We have tried to pass the torch of LeBron to so many players, and none of them are is dominating as LeBron or is good for his long He has been a stale story line of greatness for a lot of us for a long time. What else do I say about the guy? What can I say about the guy? Well, I'm sure he has something to say about his kid getting caught smoking dope on TV yesterday. Called a dotcom get really old. But that might have something to say about that. Fine. I guess we could. We could try to take shots at him, but that's a little bit greasy. What else? Oh, there's the China issue. We could go ahead and take shots at him on that. But on the floor. It's just one milestone that's broke after another. And we're like, Yeah, we get it. LeBron's good. We keep saying it all the time. Yeah, we got it. So we pick other people. It's the most. It's the most popular player award. It is not the most valuable anymore next. So, Joe Burke said. I know I know. Okay. So Joe Burrows Bangles career has got off to a good start so far is the form number one overall pick has thrown for a combined 509 yards and accounted for four touchdowns in his first two games Borrow played even well. Enoughto almost almost pull the upset over the Browns on Thursday night, so work or a shoot. The Bangles won't finish in last place in NFC North this arm. Sorry, KFC North this year That's a work. Look, there were not a good football team. Joe Burrows, a good quarterback. They're not a good football team, and I gotta tell you I don't know if I were throwing the ball 61 times. He listened. He had a good game. Getting his head kicked in. Browns defensive front was all over. I think he's a good quarterback is a very talented quarterback. I don't want to say nasty things about job, Earl. I like Joe Burrow. With 316 yards on 61 attempt. I hope if you're throwing the ball 61 time, you're gonna have 316 yards. That's only 5.5 yards for attempt. It's less than 5.5 yards per attempt. It's like 5.1. Hey, I like Joe Burrow a lot, but not even talking about pumping the brakes. Let's just give. Let's give it what it do. But that's all I'm saying. I think that's a work. I think their last place football team still will be a competitive team. It's gonna take a couple of years. Next work. Lastly, Kenny would.

Boston - Report Details ‘Heated Confrontation’ Between Marcus Smart And Jaylen Brown, Who ‘Needed To Be Separated’
"Air down to Oh, they have a huge game three tonight against the Heat. Their season rests on it because, of course, no MBA team has ever come back from a 30 Siri's deficit. And it's time to see you. The Celtics are. Of course you read the reports. The athletic had the story on Friday. Postgame blowup falling game to Marcus Smart, Jalen Brown having a heated confrontation inside of the locker room they needed to be separated by their teammates. They then talked it out with Jason Tatum and Kemba Walker and Bride Stevens's room around one in the morning agent which Morales give ESPN had that is well yesterday. So this is a turning point for the Celtics and Are they going to fall apart or just going to be a rallying cry for them? Because there is one thing that's for certain the Celtics are a team right now. That can't close their close, but they can't cause it struggled to close against the Toronto Raptors. And they've struggled mightily to close against the Miami heat in games one and two of the Eastern Conference finals. And that is the reason why they're currently down, and that extends To the sidelines next since the coach Brad Stevens. You talk about Mike Budenholzer and some mistakes he made with the Bucks. Brad Stevens, also struggling to close and adjust to Erik Spoelstra and the Heat. So is this a Celtic seemed, is falling apart. Or is this a turning points?

The Glamorous Lakers' Unlikely Leader
"So Kevin. In spite of being blown out the other day in Boston the Lakers are still the number one seed in the West and everything is sunshine and rapes around the staple center but a year ago. It felt like there was a storm cloud hanging over the franchise. I had magic Johnson. President Basketball Operations nations stepping down team fired their head coach. Luke Walton and then they chose Frank Vogel as his replacement awesome and there was a perception around here in Los Angeles that it was a pretty uninspired choice right in some ways frank. Vogel is the Ultimate Safety School. So for the Los Angeles Lakers Kevin Arnovitz is an NBA insider for ESPN. They went after Monty Williams former player who has immense amount of respect but at the end of the day he got a much more appealing offer from the Phoenix Suns. Tai Lue was a top choice. Lebron's former coach NBA Championship. Cleveland Cavaliers in two thousand sixteen. And what are the Lakers. Do they offer him a contract that I think it's fair to say was. Maybe not befitting a championship coach. There's sort of a standard now for for what a NBA coach gets in terms of the years in terms of money and this particular contract offer fell far short of that to the point where I think the public certainly the perception within the League was here of the Lakers doing it again. They think they're the Lakers. They have this golden or around them they can just offer championship. Coach is his deals. That don't reflect that pedigree so they don't get money Williams tyler walks not for another job. He just walks and they get Vogel. I used to do a lot of L. A.. Sports Radio and I remember this announcement very vividly. Los Angeles Lakers fans. They were not happy. Happy Kevin in fact they were furious. Vogel I think at the outset was seen as an odd choice for a number of reasons. One one is. The Lakers are the Lakers. And they have traditionally gone after coaches. That are either real brand names or have this royal. LAKER occur bloodline they are part of the Laker family. So here comes Vogel who is coming off. Two year stint in Orlando where he lost twice as many games as he won one could say no fault of his own. It was it was a young mismatch roster of players. But he doesn't have a brand name he looks like an accountant announced he's never played in the NBA before so he doesn't bring with him. The story playing career so for a fan base and a franchise. That's always been very brand obsessed. Why are you getting this off? Brand coach was very much. I think the perception an off Branko. Now I'm imagining frank. Vogel at the Grocery store he's like the generic. I Love Kirkland. I I think that sets up this story very well because you great value. Oh you use the Kirkland of coaches and of course. The Lakers are widely perceived as his ex hyper glamorous NBA franchise in particular with Lebron James. They're going into an off season in which they're going to be trying to get free agents. This is before the trade for Anthony Davis and here comes maybe the least glamorous coach forget fans for a second just people inside the game fifteen choices of who is going to be. The next Lakers head coach. I don't I don't know that Frank Vogel would have been on one ballot. I'm not saying Bogle can't coach Lebron's right that's different. So how did he get start. Frank Vogel got his start by by being a pest he was division three point guard for a genie out of college and he became obsessed with Kentucky basketball when he was at home on winter. Break when you're watching that famous Duke Kentucky lightning later catches He decides I want to be part a big time college basketball. He's going to leave his division three school. He writes letters to the staff at Kentucky including Rick Pitino and they basically send back a form letter. Thank you for your interest. This is in the mid nineties so he decides. I'm just going to drop out of my college enroll at Kentucky. I'm GONNA drive there. Basically without an invitation nation. And I'm just going to hang around the facility. Whatever anything I can do to get inside volunteer? Whatever they need and little by little sure enough he hangs around enough due to the point? Where Jim O'Brien who was assistant to Rick Pitino said Okay Okay? We'll we have the video room. which at the time video rooms have become like the very sexy place to get your start as a coach? Now Erik Spoelstra Mike Putin Holzer Dave Fidel but back then it was still kind of a newish thing and so he just camped out in the video room and essentially became one of the best young video coordinators in all of basketball and to the point when when Pitino went to the Celtics they ultimately brought. Frank Vogel Oh go along with them. And then when O'Brien took over he promoted him again and so little by little. He's sort of the He's the kind of the little engine that could of basketball. So he dollars. O'Brien to Indianapolis. And that's where he gets his first shot as head coach. How does that go right? He gets to the Fr- what we call. The Front of the bench comes a top assistant in an Indiana Under Jim O'Brien O'Brien gets fired and Vogel's the next Guy Up Larry Bird actually ask Joe. Brian looked this. Guy's really loyal to you. Do you think you take the job. and Jim O'Brien profane. Lee said absolutely

I think in your profession of of how competitive it is between organizations wins front offices owners are competitive with each other. How much are you ever willing to share with guys you compete against. I've I've had coaches in a league who who are great admirers of yours who'd say I'd love to build a relationship with them. I really we WANNA see how he does it. But you know Miami's a little more close off their. You've been in Miami your whole career. You haven't been the different guys have different places because they've worked. If we're you know lots of people but I think there's always been a sense of like the Miami Culture has been a little more. We don't we're not opening. We're not swing our doors wide open to see you how we do it but sharing among each other like you said when you saw him at a clinic and you're going. I don't know maybe I don't not that. You're going to give something away there that he had scouted her scene. But how do you guys view that within balancing act you know I think it turns out to be relationships ships. As far as I'm concerned I don't go out my way to call share and I get calls. They get a lot of calls and so does slow but it is. You know it's it's a it's a telephone you know when you go to a clinic or something you share with whatever you're trying to share but it is a competition still too and I understand. That's another thing that I've learned. I remember we had Riley opened the door. We had a practice I had practice at your facility because rows at anticipation ship. We'd practice at your facility and we beat you. Guys and Tim comes up to me well. They'll be no more practicing at the Miami Him. Eat you know and that's how you feel like. I have things that I'll do. Anyone can practice in our facility. I'll do that but then I have things things that I am very quirky about you know earlier when I was very quirky about if I saw my assistants talking to the other systems like what are you guys talking talking about what possible conversations right now and this is are complaining about. Ah There's like I say we're not quite as iron curtain as we used to. Yeah we do open up our doors a little bit and you know we don't really necessarily go out of our way to network and kind of an introvert anyway and it just kind out of lines up during the off season. I like to go visit football programs. Just because it's different catches my interest a little bit more on it. You know you talking basketball with your staff and the other people all year long. I like seeing something a little bit different. I relate to them and and it usually ends up being not tactical discussions but it always comes down to personality management and and that's what I find you know probably most interesting about this business. What's the one or two days you guys ever spent outside of basketball whether it was at a football football facility you around ballot check in Boston spinal. You've gone all over. Nfl College football what was one you walk out of there said wow how or a dinner with somebody who was completely outside your element and said I got more out of that than I would have to for a specific reason I saw Pete Carroll uh twice just because not because he's winning super bowls actually before his first super bowl there and there's more just his personality as a so much different than me. I have mentioned I'm an introvert and I like to seek out people. That are a lot different so two years goes you know who is going to see in college. Football is going to see a Dabo swinney any and I'm friends with Butch Jones is very good friend of mine so these to compete against each other but he's such an incredible personality as man if I could have like one percent of so much better coach and ideal relate to my players better but I walked out of both of those not only amazed at thera ability to relate and just the one in nine personalities but also just how you you walk out of their thinking wow. This is my best Ashrat in two days later. They probably have a twenty five other people say to care for me as well just his energy who if you ask anyone. HP Carol Everyone's getting the wrong all coaching and there's no way you see that you know how Bella check with the one for me just because he's so different and I had a chance to speak a couple of times and I love that's phenomenal to there. I would always go to their offense of meetings right before the game I would he gives you great access and you would sit there and I remember the one game they basically said what they were going to they do and they did it and then one guy is outside of sports that just blew me away as Malcolm Glatt well. I had a meeting with him and I realize I said I'm not very smart. You know at that but his ability to kind of understand people was incredible. Docs Bo this was this was a lot of fun. I appreciate you guys doing this. We could do another hour on a whole `nother set of topics but I appreciate you guys doing it. It's data yeah yeah. I love getting spokesman.

"Otherwise, I would have followed up by saying, So Chris, you're saying you're going back to Michigan for basketball games, which is, you know, for many years would have been over his. You know what body? So fascinating Lee enough that video went viral not only because in terms of galvanizing together is a bunch of Michigan fans. The Miami Heat crew we're talking about it. Because as C Webb said, he would not only he's not only got the respect of the Michigan alumni base. But he learned from with Pat Riley, right around. Sitting on the bench of Erik Spoelstra a Riley acolyte and also, Dwayne Wade talked about it. Lebron re tweeted it. So Dwayne Wade would come to Michigan games. The king of Marquette, maybe his son, go to Michigan. Lebron James, Mr. veal, Hieaux state university. But he show up to a Michigan game backs. Now, that's you wanna talk about recruiting. How about that? And so, again, LeBron re tweeting our video. And so, I guess not only we thankful that because he's got a Jillian followers. But in this position is sports talk radio host. I must now thank him by using it against him. Right. To do is, is a sports talk radio host. I think though he hasn't tweeted about Frank Vogel, and thinks he is a he hasn't yet. He's he was there. He was there on Monday. No, I'm not going to LeBron. Thank you for the re tweak. Did he want you one is the Lakers head coach? No. Really lebron? Thank you, for the re tweet really, really predated. Yeah. According to Jon Rothstein Michigan has offered the job who Juwan Howard, two sides begun to go. She ations deal remains far from done though. Okay. Except now you said that you monitoring the social media tubes networks. John's wife, tweeted something out. Yeah. John's wife, had tweeted out a celebration emojis around all caps. Big blue Nobu go blue. Yeah. Fantastic. If this happens again, that he's part of the fab five that so many people said were tore at the fabric of college basketball because of what they did who they were what they stood for the length of their shorts what they did to their hair all that business. That he's now comes back as a coach after obviously, all that happened with the fab five that would be an amazing story. And by the way, speaking is an alum cosign, check that box. I'll take it. Having heard with Chris Webber said, what, what Juwan Howard would bring to the table. I checked that box. And plus if it for one second brings, LeBron James into Chrysler arena, for even one second, Matt is a significant OEM. Trolling on his Ohio State fandom. But that is significant. Are you kidding me? What's more current? Who's more current? He could bring a goat in there to basically talk to a recruit would LeBron do that with LeBron do that knowing that Michigan plays Ohio State couple of times a year. I think he would come on the Brown. You know, you want to thanks for the re tweet LeBron. Do you ever poll question over there? Chris if you. Yeah. Yeah. Over that based on the Eastern Conference finals locked at two games apiece. Right now, which of these teams would give the warriors the best series bucks. Raptors. It's funny. If we'd asked that question yesterday you'd have been bucks overwhelming. Yep. But now you see collide make almost half his shots from the field. And he's definitely banged up know it's definitely banged up car lower getting it done. See what they can do in. Milwaukee may have Ghazal is gonna hit three pointers. Look out Thursday. Saturday monday. So there's no rest for any weary. Here we go. No games. Wednesday Friday, Sunday. Let's go Thursday. Saturday, Monday, all on TNT back and forth between Milwaukee and Toronto and the warriors are rooting for delayed plane flights and trouble checking into hotels and all of that loss bag all of it. Isn't that amazing again if we asked that question yesterday? It would have been the bucks. Now it's a, it's a tossup, I still think the bucks because Jaanus is such a difference maker, although our friend will bond congratulations to the TI crew forming the EMMY for best studio show daily..

"All there's a couple of times where it's become public where we've seen it again, all those are normal things. Right. I mean in a lock room. I'm sure you've seen it firsthand. Plenty of time you see guys. Take on bridge. The things that coaches say sometimes it'll be like, I don't agree with what you said. Sometimes it'll be wait. Why are you putting out me? But you won't call out boy wonder over here who was the same thing wonderboy, you know. So that's a shack called weighed when he wanted to get out of Phoenix, basically, Ricky, you're going to let them do that to wonderboy over there wanting to take you minutes, I'll tell you agreed three off air. But, but the funny thing is or the funny thing that the difference here is that Luke standing within organization is not rock solid. Correct. Right. That's what makes this different right? If it were anywhere else. It wouldn't be a story or or if it were story story about how develop McGee and land Stevenson aren't going to be available for the next game. Right. But the problem is because of a magic, and rob Pelinka weren't the people who hired him and haven't been his most vocal cheerleaders. And then LeBron doing the LeBron thing over the last couple of weeks or so. Makes it a tenuous environment. The thing I always point out. There's no such thing as a strong coaching MBA ever will be a strong. This wouldn't happen. A pup suck as Papa strong and guys are afraid of pop is because they know the organization backs is dude one hundred percent everybody who makes it who means something who matters in this organization. Make sure the his employment is secure, right? And so I can't win that fight. You can't beat city hall as they say. Lebron found that out about Erik Spoelstra early in his Miami tenure the going Pat Riley said do you ever get the itch, right? And so the difference here is he doesn't have that. Backing no because he doesn't have that backing makes them vulnerable and players in the locker room could smell it. When a guy doesn't have the power to things, I think they're important here. The first one you're talking about it's like the Spurs. Not only do they have the back. They're not gonna bring in four guys that we all sit here in July and go, well that's gonna be weird. Yeah. Right. They might have one might bring one guy into our culture, the culture, invalid whatever, but they don't do four. And so you get that. And then like this is why when people talk about you can't make that trick hold on the capsule. He might sign here with Anthony Davis. You've got to build a team. Yes. At some point hundred percent on this for so many years a bunch of guys on one year contracts. You'll bunch of young players who are expecting get traded or maybe not or going to be stars. Or maybe asked to be the. You got to build a team at some point. And this is the residue that you get when you have year after year of uncertainty. The other issue is is that what happens is when you have a story like that. And the Lakers, by the way pushback on it said, basically what we said, which is these things happen all the time. It's over hyped, whatever. And they do they do have all the time. But again doesn't mean it's not insignificant. Okay. Or excuse me. It doesn't mean that. It's just insignificant. Where I draw the line is when people take the leap and say Luke is losing the locker room. And we've had some of that like there's some hot take artists that will go in that direction that's draw the line because you know, what? I don't think any of this stuff has been fair to Walton. Absolutely not all agree that losing, Michael Beasley does not mean losing the locker. Danville mckeon. Here by the way on wasn't even involve lands on Instagram said, I wasn't even vote at all. I was having a lot of fun. Actually, you know. So, but you're right. They're playing. Terrible lead to make is just a terrible leap to make people make that leap automatic. But again, they make the leap not in a vacuum. They make the leap knowing those other things right slot in the wall. But for one thing that the most important name to me and that sorta resign Rondo apart. And that's a do..

"Still you're gonna be shocked to hear this. You're gonna be stunned to hear this. When I was a writer. A columnist. I was a bit of a rabble rouser. So I might have occasionally push some buttons of the people I covered because it was true. And because it amused me. And we were talking about the panic is the time to bear an echo on four hundred and throw up the white flag when I was covering the Miami Heat that first year LeBron was there. And then there are a lot of pressure. They lost that I came to Boston. They like one foreign road. And they went a little bit of a losing streak and memory serves at certain point. There are only nine eight people freaked out. And I think it was after the eleven though the three game losing streak in November. I it's hard to remember. It's been it's been almost almost ten years. Eight nine years. Every day. Erik Spoelstra and the heat would come out to the press because there's so much attention. I moved to Miami for the year to cover it. Brian winters moved to Miami from Cleveland to cover and their whole thing was don't panic. Don't panic don't panic and I decided to write a column stew. That's first words were it's time to panic and didn't entire calm. I guess you could argue mocking. The Heat's is. There's no reason to panic. It's early thing in Riley's to be so controlling that. He was like listen the press conference with text the PR guy, and I walked into the locker room that day the head of public relations. Really good guy. Well, we get along pretty well now, but we did not back then. I got f- bombed the most aggressively I've ever been yelled at until Chris Paul rolled into my life because I said it was time to panic. But what I saw then was a heat team that really struggled. When the pressure was massive when they were uncertain of themselves, and I wrote and I believed. That if they got on certain themselves in a big moment, like the files that they could collapse. I wrote it all year, and they did against the Mavericks. My point is this people hate to hear it. It makes you angry, and you can generally be wrong. But in the Sixers and the thunder, and the rockets, and maybe even the Celtics. You're going to be able to read in some of these teams. Problems to come if they're there if they if there are real foibles and weaknesses. They do show themselves even early in the season. It's just hard to know what's a small sample size. And what is a real pattern emerging eight five five two one two four CBS if you'd like to share your perspective, Rick and Philadelphia, thanks for listening. Brother, you're on CBS sports radio. Hey, what's going on up to me? I think it's concerned for the seventy Sixers not the the couldn't make the playoffs. But I think with this. Long injury history here, and they continuously they can't say on the court. And I think that's going to be a major factor for the team because they don't have a lot of death really outside. Our starters in a guy like folks is still trying to work as kinks out ready playing solidly but outside of that assault player. They don't really have any debts. Really? So I think that's going to be an issue, and I could see them dropping into the lower seats even in the Eastern Conference. But one point I wanted to make on a Paul, George, which I think is gonna be a team that's going to be in a major funk is I think to me he made a massive mistake by going to the Lakers because going to the Lakers, even if you're the second guy, which you still aren't okay see with championship with playing next to LeBron that roster. They're gonna simple around him. Whereas in okay, see, it's just going to be the Russell Westbrook. So and so I think them guys are not gonna fit as well together. And I think he's gonna end up regretting not a bolting for the Lakers. So I don't know what he was thinking of that time. I wanted to get your thoughts. Originally on the seventy Sixers history because they depth and you think they should make a run Jimmy Butler. I'll take all your thoughts on that. Eric, thanks for the call. I actually the thing would be would be a great fit in a lot of ways. I'm not worried about Philly Philly in the long term. I'm a little word in the short term. I think they have a little more depth than you're a fan. I'd get I I love which is great. But the real problem is they don't shoot three pointers, particularly. Well, when Radic south there, that's obviously correctable, but when Radic's out there, you're not giving full opportunity to break loose and southern this weird place where they've got to play Marquel? Foltz enough to give him confidence and see what they haven't him before they give up on a guy that they drafted number one overall last they moved up to draft last year. Everyone was on the floor. And I think Jeff on this. You've got two guys on the floor who can't shoot that's a really hard way to win in the NBA two thousand eighteen and Simmons when it's him on the floor. It does matter. He's such a remarkable point forward. However, you want to label him that he'll find shooters. Yes. This Rama shooters though. And we're gonna shot we haven't gotten into this because there's a lot going on. But I said in the off season Ben Simmons was in the gym every single day work on a shot. You got a little bit of a warning sign. Terms of him reaching his potential. He's already said this year. I'm not word on my right down where I'm at get their, bro. You can be LeBron James good. He your that talented if you work shot LeBron couldn't shoot the rock when he came out of high school to the NBA he figured it out put the freak working. I like your Philly team. I think we're gonna finish in the top four assuming that look, I'm assuming that Embiid is gonna be healthy Embiid and Simmons our health, and there's too much talent not to be really really impressive. But I think the weaknesses that. We're seeing you're not going to be able to overcome those on a seven game series you need shooters. And the Butler thing would be a mighty price. I think what makes more sense to the Lakers need three points years. I don't think they do that the Sixers. Yes, they do. They need to be able to stretch the floor a lot more and they need Markelle full. So we have to shoot the ball and not be on the floor. And I'm rooting for the kid. I said there's a lot I feel so awful for him. Eight five five two one two four CBS or Twitter. Sportswriter sports. REIT are Eric. I'm going to pronounce your name, Eric and I'm sorry. Eric definite.

I agree with that for now. Paul George such a talent. And by that I just want to circle back to something the other gentleman the gentleman who called him from Philly said, I'm not convinced that Paul George choice in going to LA. I'm not convinced that there isn't a and it's collusion. You're not allowed to do it. So no one's going to talk about it. But I'm not convinced that LeBron didn't say in two thousand nine hundred thousand nine expect inserting Anthony Davis or whoever to be here. And I don't want Paul George. The bronze kind kinda guy that doesn't wanna play with the people. He doesn't wanna play with. It's not a good idea. It's not cool. It's not. Okay. But that's LeBron is Yvonne. Lebron? I absolutely want Paul George what you have to have what you have to have to get past. The warriors is great wing defenders. And it's pretty nice. When those wing defenders can also score the basketball, Paul George Jimmy Butler. Those are the kinds of pieces that you need and that she want unless LeBron is planning to go get Jimmy Butler next year. I don't understand. I'm not really sure why you wouldn't go after Paul George. But I think there's a chance. That's what happened. I just have. And I could be I don't know. I haven't reported this. I haven't called people on it. I sort of floated to people in the NBA, and they're not sure I read. Really don't understand a scenario or Paul George doesn't decide to go and be a Laker? When he grew up in that area. He grew up idolizing Kobe Bryant unless he did Naveh choice. Joe thighs Mun legend gonna join me in just a moment here on the show. Right.

He orders like shit getting, but I did see Eric's bolster down there and I got orders. Did you do this to just the wife? I didn't do the program. I came down when the program was done, just. Thing and she, she took community and she dove headfirst literally into it. And I did go one day out on the boat. I went on Monday and I'd never done anything like that. I'm terrified of animals like in the wild. Like if I'm swimming in Venice beach and I see a fish, I lose. I've seen you around a dog. I'm like the opposite of Mason. Yeah, I'd rather be around old friends like Ryan Hollins new friends, but to be around the dolphins in the wild was an incredible experience. So Ben, what did she take away from this experience with the dolphin? I think she took away the idea that you know there's a universe larger than ourselves, obviously other something she knew already, but just the idea that these ancient species are down there providing so much wisdom and love and dolphin. Just wanna play. They just wanna be loved. They just want to enjoy life and be like a family group, but how you talking to him? No. How do you come on here? Look me in my face and tell me your wife is talking dolphins as possible. Why Ryan? I'm. Telling you man, it's real down. Your wife is in the holiest ick industry like, and that's something that most people don't believe in at all. I can just say, no, it's just all natural get. You talks on rhino preservative. Know the people. There are people who don't believe in that who think that that's just mumbo jumbo garbage. We're not really all it's just all natural stuff. Don't don't buy into the top, but you can talk to other humans without talking. You can just look bug out of Masada mining. Yeah, Yeah. can fill energy hackley. They wouldn't go telling me, you're like, hey, how you doing? How's your think LeBron's going to get out of the second round this year? No, they're not having. And telling you man, it was incredible to be around to be around that type of life force out over your mind. Right. I'll give you. I'll give you credit. I got in the water with dolphins one time, but like seven feet tall in the water, and they're fast like straw, they can. They could if they want their malicious, they could take you. We personify them as these kind to roll like. And you're not afraid when you're with them at all you feel loved and you feel taking care of and it was a little nervous really douse a little nervous. I didn't know how big they were pulse. You know what we don't. We also don't see how far deep under the ocean they swim. Like we think of them jumping out of the waves and the little spinner ones showing off. Joke him Noah's somewhere here this the cheese. God bless your massive. Knowing that you tell me dolphin, he's he's going to be coming to a big three. Upset with. Now they get LeBron James of Laker fan told me they deserve this for all the years of suffering. Well, they did. They actually, I think the Lakers have finally been repaid by the league be after the league interfered with the Chris. Paul trae the basketball reasons hashtag, never forget. So the league spent a few years. I'm just speculating making sure that they kept their draft picks even against some tall odds over the years so they can help rebuild and then they eventually got the Lakers back. The debt has been repaid, it's better for the Lakers. It is better for the league. So what are they have saying with? No, they're upset. I've seen some Laker fans upset at the notion of the Lakers traveling on Christmas day because it has been a tradition that not only the Lakers are a part of the Christmas day slate, but that they play at home since nineteen ninety nine the cr- they have only been on the road three times two thousand five and two thousand six in Miami..

"Dan was last co hosting the show with us before the piston job was Brad Stevens rookie year. I think we had them on the show. It stand told us, he warned us. This is the college coach that's going to be the guy they're going to be good. Is he the best coach in the league? I mean, Popovich gets the reputation for it, but is is right now, the guy, the best guy coaching that's two dollars to is the best guy coaching, Brad Stevens? Well, he's very, very good, but there's a lot of good coaches in the league. I will say this. I thought that he did a phenomenal job this year. Probably the best job in the league this year when you look at the play offs, also. You know, but but look Popovich Erik Spoelstra. Guys who've won championships. Mike dantonio has done a phenomenal job in Houston. Terry Stotts is done a phenomenal job in Portland. Alright, STAN. No, no. But this is. Coach worship. Saying there's a lot of very good guys in point and one of them out if I go on the full season this year from the beginning to the play offs, I thought what Brad did was incredible and the best jazz. What I'm saying. I don't believe in a long time in a long time. You and your brother have the same pivot. Okay. This is what you do. I ask you about coaches and then you praise the coaches. But when I say, is he the best coach? Your response is there are a lot of good coaches, and then this is your pivot, and this is your brother's pivot. I will say this though, which allows you to not answer the question. You use the phrase. I will say this though, because you're not answering the question. The question was is Brad Stevens the best? Yes, maybe no. Well, listen. Then I think I will say what you were going to stay. Maybe was. Sports talk airwaves I think have quite enough people willing to criticize coaches. I think that take is certainly not unique to any show in sports, talk radio. So having a little bit different viewpoint on coaches may not be all bad. It's gotta be Stevens or Nick nerves.

"Erik spoelstra who's a video coordinator before lebron elevated elevated him to greatness so from my point of view what lebron's accomplished has been more impressive than what michael jordan did i know jordan went six no but lebron has done more with less than jordan in my opinion you can disagree with them okay look we can come back around to it and i can dismantle that part of the part of the if but he still didn't we still didn't get into here's the biggest thing that's missing in all these debates no one's ever willing to move off a position your jordan guy you're a lebron guy you're a jordan guy or i offered up i thought durant was the better player this year i thought he was the better player last year in the league but no one's ever willing to move off of it well you know this is happening with the national anthem debate and politics and that's why this sports tribalism is running amok not getting really ugly i'm i don't i look i'm all for debating topics there's nothing wrong with debating top picks k put there is a time to which you go hey like look i thought durant was better this year because i actually watched the nba but sometimes really hard because the bron yes he played eighty two games but he and play hard defensively for good stretches mark jackson and van gundy called him out yesterday for defense and i thought that was a great moment because i was conserving energy your she was 'cause you ha you have to play those kind of minutes and that's what he did this year he also didn't practice this season which is one of the reasons is team took so long to come together because he was pacing himself so it's really hard to tell who's playing heart and who's not an the level of competition that lebron is playing against as opposed to durant playing against is inferior in in comparison anybody tell you massively inferior in comparison that said as somebody who i believe that kevin durant was the best player in league i'm willing to move off that position based on what i've seen over the last two weeks and i think durant was really good early in the series but he's in a weird place right now i.

"I think the most stinging indictment of eric's bowl stra that we have seen in his entire tenure is the point mike's making which is look at what boston did the philadelphia where it was clear as you were watching when ben simmons is getting one point you're like oh wait they're doing something schematically that the miami heat did not know to do now that's the way i viewed it i didn't think it was they're doing something schematically that the miami heat's players can't do but it could be that and i would love to have an honest conversation which you can't have with the coach on the air about how erik spoelstra viewed specifically that what boston did to philadelphia when miami couldn't do anything close to what it is that boston did yeah and the honest answer might be just the players didn't execute look you could want it was planning to say what the we're trying to do they were laying off ben simmons darren them shooting what happened was ben simmons would get the ball get ahead of and create plays and whoever was sliding over could not stop and simmons and for whatever reason boston did and i don't understand it well they play very good defense they play very connected defense is boston indeed the number one statistically ranked defense in the league is boston could was sold in state erik spoelstra has failed this city donlevatar you really are of the impression that all of south florida and good parts of america are huddled around their transistor radio just to hear your opinion on things aren't yes in europe to spill gots don't listen to anything stu got says this is our show with stugatz on the ticket you want to go back to mike's likes i mean we've barely scratched the surface here dan i mean gear mos awful let's just say that needs to be said dr case should not have been pitching yesterday he should have pitched the day before i don't know why they moved them back a game but they did send to people down relate the fates as always we talked about so dan i'm thinking saying he's gonna come up soon sandy might be fun to watch you're gonna watch do you wanna watch sandy and.

"I said last series come out of the and and to me the larger thing that it that it comes to to bring to bear is how important is assistant coach because look and lebron one in in miami with erik spoelstra yeah twice who is a great it is like a video guy yeah i mean by the way there are people in the league who thinks pulses sponsor is a great coach and he did a nice job with the miami hit a nice job but he's not phil jackson phil if you have a hall of fame coach like think about pat riley and the lakers you think about phil jackson and the lakers you think about phil jackson and the bulls and you start to understand that you need if you wanna win if you wanna be a dynasty if you wanna be that guy people say jordan jordan's the greatest of all time because he just one will jordan one because he had a great system to play in that played to a strengths a triangle offense that put him him at the tip of the isosceles trying and it was something that people had never seen before so phil jackson system beat people in games where jordan may not have beaten them right or phil jackson system put people on their heels in a way that theron lou is going to develop a system that's going to that's going to overpower people know he's not david blatt gonna develop a system that's going over barb is spoelstra going to develop a coaching system in a coaching tree underneath no none of those people are is brad stevens yeah and is and he is it just shows you it was never was in more on display cleveland was up by like seven maybe up by five at the half i think they're up seven at the half top third quarter they're up six or eight okay and i said to myself they're not winning this game now i was like cleveland can't sustain this is all on one guy they can't sustain it it's not gonna that's why i think houston doesn't have shot because yes houston has james harden who is probably going to be mvp share court and was on fire eric gordon was on fire.

"And this was the question going in because we knew the importance of this game going down to miami at a place where erik spoelstra and dwayne wade and pat riley have carved out such a niche and they get all the veteran qualities associated with them and rightly so it's well earned at this point but the sixers joel embiid in particular new and were hungry for this idea of showing everyone that despite being young despite being back in this scene in this playoff seen an atmosphere for the first time in a while that they're serious about this at they're very serious about this and i thought it was interesting ramona shelburne are espn nba insider join kenny may not sportscenter last night and talked about joel embiid really forcing the issue on being a part of the game last night now you have to understand it was killing joel embiid not to play and i said to him you know do you feel like you would have been able to play in this game if you didn't put pressure on love watching justice winslow try and break that thing to every part about how chippy and how much these teams teams genuinely seem to dislike each other is enduring and it only got better when you've got embiid out of the court last night a guy so brash confidence what you watch the back to back stretch of plays were down the other end because at the beginning it did not look pretty for joel embiid and you can understand that math there is a amount of depth to that mask in those goggles that would certainly i think make shooting an operating on the court difficult you saw him pull it up every time he had a chance on the free throw line just to try and get a look seemed frustrated with it in his own right going out there and trying to pull that off and so it was going to i think alter his game a little bit now clearly we saw that pick up late and twenty three points plus nine on the night nothing to shake you know nothing to to really poo poo but you had that one stretch still and the.

"National radio show here i think it's worth noting luke walton i think it's worth pointing out might antoni i think it's worth reminding yourself erik spoelstra that lebron james is really difficult to coach and really difficult to manage there's a history let's just go back to the miami years lebron tried to get erik spoelstra fired the first two months of that nba season when he went to miami leaked a story to a wellknown reporter who carried water for lebrons camp by the name of crispus art riley back spoelstra there was a collapse in the finals it was more lebron's doing he knew he had to win a miami they figured it out one two but he shaved under that inability to have control and he laughed again he didn't leave miami on good terms of miami he left on terrible terms one of the most stunning things in in my career turnarounds was i you know having covered lebron every day is a columnist when i was a farce dot com and i was really hard on the bombing we travel you know we as a guy that covered the team there were not no ten of a lot of us that year and most of the guys whereas all men were pretty positive in their coverage of the heat until you had to change i wasn't i wasn't from day one and the heat were so i respected by no complaints back your people have your employees backs be loyal it's all in the game i get it but the heat made my life a living hell they they did intern filed a whole assortment of things and the people and they were professional about it but sources wouldn't talk to me and when the bronze left i became the best friend the half the people there that used to tell me what an idiot i was half the people who tell me how wrong was about lebron or swear at me or yell at me or whatever it was became sources who wanted to tell me lebron stories the it was amazing and it wasn't just lebron leaving he's difficult to manage he's difficult to coach he goes back to.
