Joey Sulipeck Investigated for Tweet Against Draymond Green
"Let's talk about Joey solo pack. Now, you know Joey, you were a meteorologist, your weather guy here in the Memphis area for a very long time before switching over and doing the right thing and coming to radio. Exactly. Exactly. I knew joy for I've known Joey for over 20 years. We did not work at the same station, but I would see him at conferences. I would see him locally and he's always been professional. He's the kind of guy that will walk up and ask you and know, you know, your family's name, how they're doing. He's the kind of guy that you want in the market. So he's a good guy. Very much so. So he's a big Memphis Grizzlies fan, and of course, there was a lot going on. It was a pretty tense rivalry between the warriors and the grizzlies. And he wrote a tweet. Yes, he did. And this goes all the way back to May 7th, and this was when the grizzlies were in the second round against the Golden State Warriors and draymond green is a troublemaker on the court. He runs his mouth a lot, he'll push, he'll nudge whatever he can to get an advantage. And one of the grizzlies players had just gotten ejected for the first time that they had mouthed off to the official. Joy writes, chew on this, draymond runs his knuckle dragging open mouth all game long, but mild mannered, Kyle Anderson disputes one call and gets ejected. Next level, Jack assery. That's it. So basically, he was saying the guy's a Neanderthal. Yes, okay. All right. Well, well, the local sports guy for the commercial appeal. Got ahold of that tweet and turned it into this big racial controversy that literally went nationwide. Everybody was talking about poor Joey solo pet who in the aftermath apologized. He should not have apologized. He did nothing wrong, and then deleted his account, he should not have done that. He did nothing wrong.

"grizzlies " Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"All right, here we are. Postgame show, the final regular season postgame show. She's a postgame show, or is it? There's no other regular season, Jimmy. Or the first postseason. It's a little bit of the glass half full half empty debate here, which one is it? Relax homeschool, relax. Hey. I'm just glad to be here. Well, let's set the table and then I'll just kind of preview how the entire show is going to go. Some of us are going to say this was really bad playing Brooklyn and then some people will say it's not. And and then the chat will say you guys are cowards and losers and you don't believe in the Celtics and it is and we're going to do this for an hour. Or so. And it is what it is. But, you know, there's still a lot to talk about. And here we go, as everything, somebody's time for the fear show. Again, this all comes. You think you had Sunday scary is now folks? Very scary. The entire thing is whether or not you are afraid of Brooklyn and the likelihood that you end up playing them or not. And some people are, some people are not and those people are insane. But that's what the whole thing goes down to and then why did they do this? The point, did they want to? Did they care? Did they position themselves for two? Did they intend? Did they not want to be for any reasons? These are all things we're going to talk about, but what we know is a Celtics have finished as the second seed. After their win over their grizzlies, they will now play the two 7 winner, which is either Brooklyn or Cleveland, Brooklyn has a home court for that game. It's going to be played on Tuesday and we're going to do a show right after that. To preview the first round opponent, I'm just bringing this on you guys now, but anyone wants to join me. Tuesday night, anyone wants to join me. We are jumping on. We're going to talk about who the Celtics opponent is once we know for sure. But you've planned. Who knows, right? Listen, listen.

"grizzlies " Discussed on The NBA Show
"And now, this is the grizzlies, right? Outside of they hit on jaw and Jaron, but the rest of the rotation is just man, it's no crumbs. There's no crumbs in this at all. There's a couple things that just didn't hit. And I think it was really interesting to go through the players that they tried on that didn't work out because I think we have this conception of small market teams can't fail. They can't get anything wrong. I don't think that's necessarily true. I think you just have to keep kind of trying and the grizzlies have always been there at the opportune moments. Like getting Andre dick Iguodala was an opportune moment. It's like seeing that the warriors are going to need to make space at that moment. I think it was like when Katie was going to the nets and they wanted to get Russell back. That's just seeing things. That's just being active. That's like being in the conversation. They're always in it. They made like 40 deals for Patrick Beverly and Eric Bledsoe. This summer that we're centered around it. That didn't really nothing really came out of them. But to me, it's kind of been like, I guess, like the closest thing to a strategy for them. You could have this conversation where it's like, is all of this stuff window dressing around the fact that they drafted a guy number two who is playing like a number one pick. They got John morant and John morant, is that a better career than Zion Williamson? What if they got the first pick in that draft? I mean, they would definitely have taken Zion. You had to take him that year, but you had to, but it's interesting. I think, I remember talking to somebody in the pelicans that year, and this was before jaws rookie year and before Zion's injury of like, it was a conversation. She's a conversation because of Zion's health. And because of whose jaw was. Yeah, because I think that people saw that sneaker exploded and they were like, this could go poorly. And I think you could reasonably look at John and be like, he plays with that west brookie and abandoned and there's going to be a time where he comes down on his back or he comes down on his knee and it doesn't look great. And the thing is, is that they've missed him a lot this season. He's only played what 56 games, 57 games or something like that. They have experienced life without John. This is not a one man show. This is not like an elite player bringing a bunch of savvy role players along with him. Plenty of evidence to suggest that this team is just as good without jaw as they are with them. Now, I think when you get into a playoff situation and you need the defenses are more intense and you need that elite talent to create baskets for themselves and others like jaw is going to be indispensable and his health is going to pretty much determine how far they can go in the playoffs. But jeez, like this is not a one man show, you know, and this is not a matter of Steph elevating a bunch of guys around him or something like that. This is like what would happen if Steph missed a third of the season and the warriors just kept cruising, you know? Yeah. If this was a team without jaw, they would be exactly like the original great and grind grizzlies, right? Right. Where you'd be saying like, man, they could really use a guy.

"Do they have a guy like that? Do you think? Do you have somebody that they think is jaw the most likely? What do you think about that? Well, I mean, he's obviously the most likely. He's getting 25 points a game. He's an all star. That doesn't necessarily mean it's a different game. I don't think that it necessarily means it's a shoe in certainty thing because you get into the playoffs. It's a different. It's a different sport, as we've seen. I mean, I've been really impressed with job, but those things kind of linger as we'll see may be possibly because even great players have gotten. Can they win a playoff series, I guess, is the question. Can they win more than one playoff series? What do you think? Depending on the matchups, I guess. It'll be really fun to see. I mean, I'll be very curious. I do think it is funny sometimes. I remember watching the Mavs, and obviously I'm from Dallas, so I'm a bias. But the Mavs business company, ESPN, and all the panelists were like, oh yeah, I'd pick jaw over Luca and just like, all right, it does seem like sometimes the next thing, everyone gets very excited. The grizzlies are to the next thing. They've been a great story, but now it gets real. Now it gets real. Now, I was telling you, if I had to guess, they're either gonna see LeBron James in the first round or Luka Dončić. And that's gonna be hecka fun to watch, and I can't wait. Yeah, there's so many series that I would love to see. I would love to see Memphis Golden State. I'd love to see Memphis Phoenix. Any combination of those. But those are going to be big boy. Oh God, I said a cliche there. But those are going to be a real test to kind of level up and see. It's similar to the way OKC back in the early 2010s had to kind of had to kind of go through people beat the man to be the main type of a thing. Sharks what are you working on right now? I'm actually working on a duke piece. I think we'll probably talk about Paolo next week. I think it's time to have the Paolo banchero discussion. It's time to talk about Paolo van carrow, indeed, is it Ben Caro? I just butchered his name. Is that how you say it? I've heard so many I said Ben Cheryl for years and we're gonna have to take care of it. Next week. We'll arm that out. Yeah. We'll make sure that we're on top of that. And I have something coming up soon here about it's going to be a surprise. I'm not going to say what it is. It's a video though. So come on to the ringer dot com. Why would you not say what it is?

"grizzlies " Discussed on The NBA Show
"Single item at regular price can not be combined with any other offer. All right, so the Memphis Grizzlies are on a tear right now. They have been on a tear for the past little bit. They are 19 and 5 since December 1st. I went through, you know, we're not totally sure who the playoff teams are, but 15 of those against perceived playoff teams. Third in the west behind Golden State in Phoenix. What in the world is clicking for Memphis right now? I mean, everything, right? They're probably the biggest story in the NBA, I would think. And we figured we are a young players podcast pretty much all their success is powered by young players. So let's talk about their whole team. They're relevant to us. We'll be the 50th podcast talk about the grizzlies. Hopefully we can put our own unique spin on it. But yeah, they've been dominant. It's been interesting because they've had John one, then ja went out for a while. They still kept wanting. They're just winning almost regardless of who's out there. It's pretty incredible. What did you think about the conversations that I know we briefly touched on it? I know how I feel about this, but what did you think about the John morant? They played better with jot without jaw for that brief time. What did you make of that conversation? I think the important point to make is sometimes when a team elevates like this, we want to give all the success credit one player because we're such a star driven league. So it's easy to look at because I've always said the most relevant stats, it always comes back to points per game and wins and losses. So when you score a lot of points on a team that wins a lot of games, you get all the credit for it. And I don't necessarily think it means all that much that they won without job. So they were ten and two without them. What it tells you is it's not just jaw. This is a team wide rise. And I think if you're a Memphis fan, that's the most encouraging part, is that it isn't just one player. It's three and four and 5 young players all rolling together at the same time. That's a nice segue to something that's interesting about this Memphis group. Now we can go down the itemized player by player development discussion that I want to do that quickly, but something about their culture that you and I talked about that was interesting and relevant kind of jutting off of the cam reddish thing that's relevant is how they go about Memphis is a team that over the past few years has had some picks. They've used the picks pretty pretty phenomenally. I think we could agree on that. And what was it you texted me the other day about how they choose their personnel. What do you think just from afar? I don't have any more speculating about speculating about this. I don't know anything specific. What is it about they pick players do you think that's showing up in the product this soon? That's already working this soon. Is there anything that jumps out to you? I think when you look at the players they draft and I really do think sometimes we make things more complicated than they actually are. And what Memphis does really well is there's obviously this very long conversation that goes back to 20 years now. I test versus stats, analytics for scouts, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But Memphis does, as they say, if you're a really good player, you should leave some kind of statistical impact on the game at the college level. It might not be the statistics that necessarily points rebounds, steals assists. But there should be some inkling on the court that you're impacting the game. And they're not just going to draft the guy based on his stats, but they're going to use stats to help themselves find players. So not to get too far down into a rabbit hole. But the guys like Brandon Clark, the Anthony Melton, Desmond Bain, these are all late first round picks early second round picks. They were all advanced stats darlings in college. And what they all had in common was they lacked the ideal physical dimensions that teams look for. Brandon Clark is 6 foot 8, really more of a center. The Anthony mountain's 6 foot two, more of a shooting guard. These don't necessarily fit your prototypical dimensions. Desmond. 6 foot four very short arms. So those guys lack the statistical things teams look for. What Memphis says not statistical. They like the physical traits. Memphis said, hey, yes, they might lack certain things, but they all suffer certain advantages that they have in the court. Clark phenomenal athlete. Desmond Bain phenomenal shooter. The Anthony mountain really, really smart player. And that allows them to have an impact on the game more than their physical tools might suggest. So we're just going to grab them. And I think what makes Memphis so interesting is you go up and down their roster. They have like 13 good players. 14 good players. It's that depth. When guys go out, they just keep rolling. And then there's guys like, John kancha. He was an advanced stats darling. He's a 6 foot 5 post player from where Fort Wayne or something. Fort Wayne. And he basically, if there was a guy who had crazy advanced stats numbers in college, but NBA scouts wrote him off. He probably wound up in Memphis. Yeah, I think that's very true. Now they do have a couple freaks. Darren Jackson junior was yet 6 11 with 7 foot 6 wingspan, ten inch hands, ten by ten inch hands. I mean, he's just a physical freak I want to talk more about him. But I think something else that I've noticed too is that there is a sort of commonality between these players and their ability to create disruption defensively. Now they're all like smart. I do think that they have a collection of pretty smart players in my opinion, but they have a lot of guys who can create disruption in the form of live ball turnovers. And we can see that because this is the number two in the league and deflections first and fast break points. And the other thing too, is that a lot of these players stylistically I've noticed that Memphis really embraces the middle game. They not just pull up jumpers, but they embrace the floater game. No team is shooting as many floaters as they do. Brandon Clark is incredible at it. John morant's incredible at it. They have a lot of guys who like to take that shot. But the defense is key. I think the floater thing is important. Here's why the photo thing is important. Because the Memphis lives at the intersection of guys who impact the game efficiently without ideal physical tools and that intersection exists, a lot of those guys use floaters because the floater allows you to play bigger than what you are. So I don't think that necessary target guys use floaters a lot. But if you use a floater, if you're not someone with ideal physical tools, you should probably have a floater in your game. And that's why Brandon Clark is a good example of the floater and how powerful it can be for an undersized big man..

"There and I know that Knox has struggled with confidence issues forever. I don't know whether or not he's going to be able to like flesh out with Atlanta or if they're even planning on keeping him. They may not be, do you expect the Knicks to get anything serious? Do you expect him to address their concerns at all in the short term or the relatively short term? I would say to double back, I wouldn't frame it as they're trading reddish for Knox. They're trading reddish for a future draft pick. And Knox is the best salary balancer. I don't necessarily think they're really looking at Knox as a potential piece for them in Atlanta. And I think you're right, they all went red. It is interesting reddish Knox and Zaire Williams, who the gross took at number ten this year's draft all went at number ten or I think Knox number 9 actually. But the reason that's going on is because at a certain point in the lottery, all the surefire picks are gone. And in the same spot in all three drafts, the teams are like, you know what? This is a very tall, athletic wing with a good jump shot, effort. Let's just take them now at some point the talent, let's just gamble on the talent and see what happens. And that's what all three teams have done. It'll be really interesting to see what happens with cam in New York because my big thing with cam is so the story is that cam went in Travis lank, the hawks GM talked about this to the media after the trade. He said, before the start of last this season, reddish said, I'd like a bigger role. And if I can't get one here, I would like to be traded. And then schlenk said, okay, and he immediately began trying to see, can I get a first round pick back for reddish? And this gets back into what I was saying about, I don't think the hawks could win this trade. Because what happened was the hawks of rath at this very talented young player who was a very high opinion of himself, and who wants a bigger role. The problem is he's not earned one. And I think that is the camera's problem right now because if you're going to ask for a big old bigger role, you have to succeed in the role you're in now. Otherwise, it just doesn't make sense. And his three years in Atlanta, cam has never been a positive player. They've always been better with him off the floor than on the floor. And he's never been an efficient player. Where do you think he's hurting them though? Where do you think that the inefficiencies are coming from? Because I think that's the crux of the issue here. What's going on is he's taking a lot of shots and not making them, and he's gambling on defense constantly. It's a pretty basic stuff. And it's funny, right? You were saying in this era, maybe, but ultimately, the problem with camera, I just like, it's so simple, it's almost stupid. He takes a lot of shots and doesn't make them very efficient. Doesn't make a lot of them. And he gambles on defense constantly and doesn't justify his gambles. So then he goes into the hawks GM's office and says, I want a bigger role and he's schlank is like, well, why? I'm going to take away shots from Bogdanovich or Trae Young or Kevin herder. These are proven players who are better than you now. I'm going to give them a smaller role so you can because you think you're a top player will prove it on the court. And I think where I look at with cam, I would say the reverse, we're talking about these guys in the late lottery. What cam should be thinking of as miles bridges? And miles bridges, he's a guy who was drafted number 12 year before cam. Now in his fourth year, he might be an all star this year, and you look at his progression, he always succeeded in a smaller role. So the hornets kept giving him a bigger and bigger role every year. They said you are succeeding, we do believe in you. We're going to expand your role. Whereas cam is more, we know you have talent, so we'll give you a chance to play. But you're not really justifying getting a bigger role even though you want one. It's an interesting thing. Some of this is kind of like reading into who these people are just as people. What is ultimately, would it even have been the best thing for slink to give reddish that much? Give him that opportunity without proving it. Like you talked about. So it's like there's maybe a maturation thing going on. And maybe he's on this path. You said something interesting to me over text just about he's one of those two or three teams from now type guys. And he's in his early 20s still. What is he? 21, 22. 22, he's, it might take him a while to realize that. But I personally have more confidence in players who demonstrate what you were talking about. And that's something that comes up over and over again and I feel like on our draft discussions is when we look at. And I think it ties into the team that we're getting ready to talk about in the way that they evaluate. I'm really pointing my notebook like a head coach right now. But I'm going to roll it up like Joe B I think it might take a little while for reddish. I don't know that heading to, I don't know that heading to New York. I don't know that he's going to alleviate alleviate the issues and the concerns that they have in the short term. I could be totally wrong about that. One thing I will say about reddish is he's a big game player. We've seen him show up. I kind of have expected him to get traded during the off season..

"Folks, I can confirm to you that basketball indeed is very good and it's a chilly but a pleasant day to talk about it. My name is Jay Kyle Mann and welcome to upside high. The show where we zoom in on the youth movement in the NBA and the NBA draft, all the things that come before that, and I'm joined per usual by my co host, the lothario of the lone state, mister Jonathan sharks, sharks, how are you doing, buddy? I like that. Kyle, you've always got good vocab, so I appreciate it. Basketball is really good. I'm still recovering from my cowboys losing in the playoffs, so. Hate football. I'm not like an NFL person. I kind of like observed misery from afar, which was pretty amusing for me. I mean, just like the ubiquitousness of it across social media is just are you like a lifetime where you like one of those Emmitt Smith Troy Aikman did you cut your teeth on those cowboys teams or do you go that far back? For sure. I mean, I'm from Dallas, so I'll always support the cowboys, but I absolutely hate the team. And it's just a weird thing. They make you miserable, huh? For sure. You're obviously like a die hard longhorns guy too. So that's basketball is your first love, right? Definitely, yeah. Definitely. Well, today we're gonna be talking about a team and a player a couple players that got swapped. So the first thing that we're going to hit on is camera Edison, and then we're going to talk more about the grizzlies and their stars and things like that. But I want to talk about this reddish trade. I feel like it raised eyebrows more than this type of trade really. I don't know. I guess any time like a hot lottery picks get swapped for each other. At first, I kind of observed the reaction of Knicks fans was initially was elation, was that kind of what was your observation of the way this trade went down just off who did you think one just at a glance from a start? I don't think the winning framework is the right way to look at a trade like this, which we can get into. I just think that sometimes is kind of limiting, right? I think ultimately reddish was not going to work in Atlanta. So they had to trade him. And whether or not he worked somewhere else, it's almost immaterial to them. So I don't think they could necessarily win the trade, but they couldn't win having him around either. I think it's probably first off, let's talk about cam reddish a bit and why he's probably a bigger deal in a lot of basketball circles than maybe his NBA production might initially suggest. Well, he has been, first of all, I would want to say, too, that the Knicks, I think the Knicks initially felt like they got like it was a big time coup for them. I think, because they felt like they got rid of a guy that wasn't playing for God that is playing. But reddish, I think this ties into what you're talking about here is that reddish for a long time and we discussed some of this in like the ringer slack and we were talking. There's always talk about camera radish on Twitter all over the place. He has this like something something about his game about the way he looks about the way he's built about his gate that really allures people into his upside as a player. And yet going into that college season the 2018 19 season with Zion and RJ Barrett or is it 1718? I think it was 1819 now. But there was some thought that he was going to be like a top three pick that he was going to be like a really true that kind of special player. And some of his warts came out during that college season, some of the where did he actually end up going? I don't have that in front of me. He wasn't three. Yeah, okay. So they're both players picked at ten swap for each other. What do you think it is about him that is so alluring? Because it's definitely there. What is it about cam reddish that it's going to give people keep them taking chances on him? I love how you're acting like it's so mysterious. His feminine allure. It's really simple. He's freaking huge. He's 6 foot 8 two 20. So right there, that's one of the bigger wings in the league. He moves really, really well for a guy his size. I think that's more what it is. Less of the size. I think it's the second thing you said. Well, it's a combination of size and speed. And then he's got a good-looking jump shot. And then he was the exact same size at 18. And as usual, you did not really give the background, so I'll give it for the people. So the background is, cam reddish was seen as a top player in his high school class for a long time. Because he was so big, he was such a good shooter and he was so fluid. Everyone said, this guy's a future star. Everyone knew who he was at like 15 years old. And what happened was he commits to dupe first and he's thinking I'm gonna be the next Jayson Tatum, jabari Parker, Brandon Ingram, big star duke wing comes to top two pick. And then RJ Barrett and then Zion committed to duke as well. And when that happens, it pushes cam all the way down the pecking order to number three. And so then duke in that one year at duke, cam's playing off RJ and Zion, not really doing very much, very inconsistent, but then he has this flashes. It's like, man, he's so big, that jump shot looks so good. What happens when he puts it all together? Maybe in the NBA, it'll be the same. He'll get a bigger role. And then he'll really show his star potential. Everyone's always thought he's had. And then he gets to the NBA and basically the same thing happens again, where he's playing off Trae Young. He's behind Deandre hunter, who the hawks drafted in the same draft. And number four, and he's never really getting that lead role. And he's always kind of tantalizing. And that's kind of where he still is, like, four years later, is people see the talent and they're waiting for their production to come around. Yeah, it's interesting to go and read if you read like talent evaluators from the time you read. I think people were just seeing this upside of like you said, big wing fluid they expect him to kind of put it together. I kind of feel like he's maybe playing in the wrong era a little bit for like his body type, like he's he strikes me as somebody that if he had played like in the 2000s in the early 2000s, he probably would have, it would have been fine in a time when basketball was a little bit different, but it's interesting that we talked about Kevin Knox, being traded for him. Honestly, it's funny that Zaire Kevin Knox and reddish all three are like these big wings. Zayre's less skilled and reddish, but it's interesting that they all kind of similar challenges. They're very skinny. They're very tall, but creating for themselves off the bounce, and then expanding to anything beyond scoring for themselves has been like a challenge. Reddish though I think that we had some work done for us on the ringer about who what really are the Knicks getting in this situation. To me, I think that they're getting a more aggressive and more like hyper confident version of what Kevin Knox was, hypothetically, you know, like he's, he really is going to jump in.

"You have to do in the NBA, because teams can't take away everything. They're going to give you something. The grizzlies is really focused on trying to shut down the paint and they gave the Lakers looks from outside. Now they did a good job contesting those looks, by the way, their clothes outs were pretty on point. But still, the Lakers also missed those shots. They did not punish the grizzlies for their choices. So that's my master lock as well. It's the Lakers not hitting the shots that they got because that changes the whole game. That changes their demeanor. And part of me wants to master lock their effort, seeing the grizzlies out compete the Lakers out hustle, the Lakers, that certainly bothers me too, but there is part of that that's just human nature. When you're coming down and you're swinging the ball and you get an open look and you miss and then the other team comes down and they get in transition because they got off a rebound off of a missed shot and they score on you and then you come back down in the same thing and the same thing and the same thing and you go through 5 6 7 possessions of that and you're getting your butt kicked, it's hard to continue selling out and making the extra effort. That is just kind of human nature that's part of it, but again I think ultimately it all rolls up under not punishing the grizzlies for their choices by knocking down shots. And sometimes shooting, it's not a sticky stat. It's just not. There's ebbs and flows with it. It happens. Hopefully next game the Lakers will shoot better. But in this one, like we'd be talking about this game quite a bit differently if monk and Bradley shot the way they shot in previous games. If they shot even just average, this game was this whole game. Looks very, very different. So I think that the missed shots really added up and the Lakers weren't able to punish the grizzlies for their choices in this one. Yeah, it's a ripple effect. If you make more shots, there's less transition opportunities, less defensive rebounds, taking the ball out of the net, forcing the grizzlies to play more half court game. Helps out your defense. You probably get more stops and you stop them from scoring so many points. It's all a very intertwined. It's all very nuanced game. No. I just figured it out. And it's one of our super chats. We are master locking the wrong thing. This comes from Zach Mustafa in a super chat, said I was there tonight. I was there when Phoenix kicked us out of the playoffs. I was there in person for another Phoenix blowout. Sorry guys. This one is on me. Come on. Zach Mustafa, you should by now you should have known better. Come on, Zach. He's got to get the master lock. That's what happens. That's why they missed all the shots. Zach, you got to take one for the team..

"It's a Boston Celtic, I don't care if it's a clipper. No. You don't wish injury on anybody on any of these players. That's just these are real people guys. Yeah, that's just to me that's just a line that you don't cross. And then but then from there, as far as as the other piece which Schroeder has been the better option, when you add in contracts, sure, like 6 million for shorter versus 44 for Russ. Okay. But I also understand why the Lakers did what they did in making the move. It just hasn't quite worked out the way they hoped it would. I don't know if I want to say this out loud, but I think that's probably true. Okay. Well, well, look at it. Okay, I get it, and this feels so gross saying it. But defensively, who would you take right now? Schroeder or Russ? I'll be honest, I haven't watched a lot of shooters defense this season. I'm sure Celtics fans would tell me a little bit more. But you've seen a lot of Russ. I've seen a lot of Ross. I mean, based on what we saw from shooter last season, at least he's more of kind of a high effort guy on the defensive end, even if the efficiency isn't always there. So defensively, I think you probably give the nod to Schurter. He's a little bit more willing to sell out. Although, you know what? Russ is a force on the defensive glass. Russ helps you out quite a bit there, especially when the Lakers are playing small. Yeah. Right. I mean, the fact that you're debating it says something. But I don't think it's like an easy, definitely Dennis Schroeder. Spot. No, I think the contract part is really, because if you're told me I can get shooter for 6 mil, then I consider this a lot more. But if you told me that we were supposed to reassign them for the number he was asking for, absolutely not. Right. Yeah..
"grizzlies " Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"How down you are on Anthony Davis. He is definitely a top ten talent in my eyes for sure. You're not going to move me off of that position at all. Has he been a top ten player when he's been healthy? No, not necessarily, but I know what Anthony Davis can look like when he's at his best. And that player does not grow on trees. So I am going to keep him. And I think I've made this point before, but given that he is a superstar level player, his contract is very team friendly going forward. There's literally no reason to trade him right now. And if you do trade him now, his point, his value is probably at its lowest. So if you're really intent on trading Anthony Davis, and I am not by any stretch. But if it came out that said the Lakers are looking to trade Anthony Davis, that is not going to come for the next couple of years when he's healthy and he's played well on the floor. And then they can get some legitimate pieces for him. A haul, something like, I don't know, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh hart. Right. That's the kind of haul I'd want from Anthony Davis if I'm being honest. But that's not happening anytime soon. So I am not moving off AD at all. It's a nonstarter for me. I hang up the phone so fast. And I probably block your number. Somebody somebody's been on your Instagram. They said Matt plays better than AD. Hey. That's not true, but I appreciate the comment. And then I hit open three, so I actually better than rusty. Oh, ouch. Senpai NFT said THT and none for roko Robert Covington and Snell. Russ for literally anyone. I firmly believe we're just flat out better with any 3D guard on the floor instead. Robert Covington hasn't had. If he's at his best, okay, but he hasn't had. That's just another name, though, yeah. He hasn't been great. Yeah. I don't know. Like I'm fairly optimistic based on what we've seen the last few games from THT. There's a little bit more confidence in him. Yeah. I'm not saying that if the right offer comes along, you just refuse to trade him again. But I think that what we've seen in the last and this could go away quickly, but the last three games we have seen the THT that we kind of expected to see this season after a month of seeing this shell of the guy that we thought that he was going to be. And we saw him for three games right after he came back from injury. He was great. And then he disappeared for like a month now. We've got three games of relatively good THT. I'm hoping this can continue, but we'll see where this goes from here. The Lakers play the kings on Wednesday if THT has a bad game. I'm going to go ahead and imagine that everyone is going to say, you know what THT is bad, trade all this goodwill is going to disappear just like that. Yes. Oh yeah, it's like we said before coming on. We're talking about fans who are going to be upset from this game..

"Let's say you go to Dwight, that doesn't your problem is you're missing shots, right? People say, well, the grizzlies out rebounded the Lakers. She would help there. Part of the reason why the grizzlies are rebounded like, which is because defensive boards are easier to get than offensive boards and the Lakers missed a lot and the grizzlies didn't. So there were a lot more opportunities for defensive boards for the grizzlies to wreck those up. Dwight Howard helps a little bit on the offensive glass, but does he help you make some of those shots? Does he get open looks for you? Does he give you floor spacing? No, because it's not his skill set. I got you. I got you right there, man. I had a comment come in and said, I almost have bingo. I just need floor spacing and skill set. So we just got him a bingo right there. With one with one short little bit of analysis. Your prize is in the mail. There it is. There it is. It's floor spacing and skill set really one that we use all the time. Oh yeah. Well, I think it's fair to put, I think it's fair to put those on there. Makes sense. Let me get into. So who is the, who do you think is the next man up? The next man up we're in chat. I'm curious what you guys think to because there's a few different ways you can go with this. So if you're coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Twitter, let us know what you think was the next best player. Obviously not LeBron, not Russ, LeBron gets the 360 award. Who is the next best player on the Lakers tonight? Am I talking garbage time or non garbage time? I think we take the whole game. This makes a little bit more difficult, because coming into this, my answer is going to be tailoring Tucker actually. Okay. And I think it's just because I think the outside shot is starting to finally come together a little bit. I am appreciating that heat. Yeah, three, for 6, which is great. I mean, prior to the game the last game, he had been on a culture. I think it was like 7 or 8 games in a row. He hadn't hit one. So I appreciate that, Taylor is starting to look more like himself. It seems like he has confidence shooting that jumper again, which is amazing given that that's kind of the role that the Lakers are putting him in. So I think I was gonna go with THT, but I think given the late game spurt, I have to give it to Austin Reeves. He was basically the catalyst and shout out Marcelo worth us for it. If you're an OG Laker fan, you get it. Yes. My guy. But anyway, 16 points for reef, 6 O 8, one of two from three, three or four from the free throw line, had a block to, which I thought was cool. But yeah, Reeves just continually does things that impress me on both ends of the floor. There was one defense of possession where I saw him rotate, tag the roller, get back out, close out to the shooter, stay with him on his hip and then contest a shot up high. That to me is very high level and no matter if you're a rookie or not. Those kinds of possessions, I think are very worth signaling or pointing out. But that fourth quarter was a lot of him and a lot of Wayne Ellington. So I'm going to go with Austin Reeves tonight. Yeah, he made a few nice players..

"Lakers nation welcome in mid here, guys. We're keeping an eye on what's going on between the cards and the Raiders. The kick was upright as we started the show there. Tie game. You know Matt the optimist Peralta and I optimist. Optimism prime, we are rooting for rooting for chaos here and hopefully a tie between the Raiders and the Chargers. If nothing just to make our colleague, Ryan ward, sweat a little bit. But in basketball news, the Lakers did not have a great performance against Memphis courageous. We're going to break down that game with you guys here tonight so if you're coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Twitter, welcome in. We've got a lot of stuff to discuss from this one. John morant. Another solid performance did play. I think grizzlies tried to pull the whole well, maybe he's kinda hurt. He might not play. They rested him against the clippers yesterday. Of course, they're always going to play him against the Lakers, but the win streak is snapped. LeBron did a lot, a lot of other guys, not so much. Matt, how are you doing man? How's your focus right now? It's admittedly very split, Trevor. It's been a crazy sports day for I think every fan base. I know NFL week 18. It's been a pretty eventful day given all the playoff implications. But we are the Lakers nation, postgame show, and so we will focus on basketball for now. And I would like to point out before we say anything else about the Lakers game is that the final score was not very indicative of how the night went. That fourth quarter run by the Lakers reserves, which I'm sure we'll talk about in a little bit was nothing short of amazing really. I don't think anyone would have predicted a 21 zero run. But for basically three and a half quarters, the Lakers were getting their butts handed to by the grizzlies who I think at this point, I think people are starting to come around and realize that they are not just a feel good story anymore..
"grizzlies " Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"You're hoping that he could return some of that value and continue to find a way to start knocking out threes again with being likely the third or fourth option on any given night. So yeah, I think you have to make that move. That tends to be what happens with players, right? When we see a player come into a team where they are, they go from being the first option on say a bad team, and they go to become the say third or fourth option or whatever it is on the team that at least has championship aspirations. I don't hesitate to call the Lakers a good team because we haven't seen that this season. But if you have a guy like Jeremy grant, who goes from being the first option to being the third option, maybe the fourth option, depending on what the lineup is, right? What usually see happen is you see the usage go down, the volume go down, so the number of tips go down, but the percentage will go up because the quality of looks is going to increase. They're going to be more selective with their shots, whereas on the team where they're the number one option, they're being asked to take a lot of bailout shots. Hey, shot clock's winding down. Well, you're our guy. So here's the ball. Go shoot it. Those are percentage killers. So you don't get as many of those. And so you see the efficiency come up. I think that's what we would see out of Jeremy grant. If the Lakers traded for him and you're expecting him to be a 20 point per game scorer, you'd probably be disappointed. But 15 ish points with good defense and helping you out on the glass and doing all those things the Lakers need. I think he could very easily give you that. Yeah, and again, going back to that year in OKC, the average 5 rebounds a game. And that's us a fourth option. I'm taking that along with again, the good three point shooting in solid to good perimeter defense. And then, oh boy, I mean, you could put him in a lineup with a him and liable LeBron and AD because I'm so sweet. That AD, the Lakers played as to play 80 at the 5. And I mean, that's what they want to do. And now I've said in other breakdowns, it baby gets dragged out to the perimeter. Now you have guys like whether if you do get Jeremy grant LeBron and other guys that they have that can rebound and not give up several offensive rebounds on one possession. Yes. Yes. I've got to come here Westbrook has been doing this this whole career. You haven't been paying attention, it's different when you're watching it every single night..
"grizzlies " Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"If he's shooting his regular jump shot I mean, how often does LeBron kick his leg out unless as a fadeaway jumper? So yeah, I personally thought that that was about a national study. And that was an important one. An important one down the stretch. All right, obviously the 360 award. The 360 award, it's got to go to LeBron. This was, again, this was a phenomenal game from LeBron James. 37 points, 13 boards, 7 assists, unbelievable two steals, two blocks, 8 of 14 from three. It just makes you shake your head because this was a game that LeBron felt like LeBron brought the win and the other guys just could not do enough to secure it. So frustrating certainly for that one, but LeBron was absolutely fantastic tonight. Yeah, and I mean, they just need one came on late, but think he told me around third quarter is going to be a game where can the other guy step up and the Lakers just didn't have that second guy that could take some of the scoring pressure off of LeBron outside of link monk who I mean the second half really came a lot of for him, but seeks straight game of 30 points. This is his 8th game in the month of December with 30 plus points. I mean, not if I'm sorry. It's just ridiculous. He has been absolutely phenomenal, incredible stuff. And so hopefully, hopefully, the Lakers can get some guys back and have some pieces to put around him and get some wins. That's the other thing. Big picture. When we look at this, this is another loss that frankly shouldn't have happened. They were up by 13 with two 25 to play in the third quarter. That run and by the end of the third quarter, they were only up 5. That is essentially where the game was lost. Was that stretch right there lost them the game and that gave the grizzlies all the momentum heading into the fourth quarter and they took and just ran with it from there. But this is another game. And there's been a bunch of them that the Lakers probably shouldn't have lost. And I'm not saying the grizzlies are a team the Lakers just should beat. The linkers have lost some of those games, lost to OKC. It seems like that. The grizzlies are a good team. But this was a game that they should have won based on the way the game was going. And then they shot themselves in the foot again. They tripped on the one yard line and could not manage to get the job done, especially again, at the end of the third quarter. And what that means big picture is that your margin for error is all but gone at this point. If you're the Lakers, your margin for error is gone, you're going to have a tough second half of the schedule. You've got a much more difficult schedule. As we head into 2022, and if they continue to do this, choke away games, find ways to lose the games that they really should win, that's going to be a big, big problem..
"grizzlies " Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Not a pleasant night, falling to the grizzlies lost by 5 and at one point the Lakers were up 13. This was a meltdown, picking the fourth quarter also at the end of the third quarter. Things got sloppy at the end of the game and the Lakers unfortunately found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, joining me to help break it down is Sean Davis. Sean, how are you doing, man? Not good after that loss. Up 13 late and they go to mellow at the 5 to try to go into the fourth quarter. So not good after seeing that. Yeah, carmela Anthony will have plenty to say about him tonight. He did not have it. And look, part of this, I think on the season come right away Anthony has been overall good. I mean, he's shooting 40% from three. He's arguably the team's best shooter. He's brought some positive things. And we knew defensively there were going to be some concerns, but tonight it felt like his legs just weren't there. He just didn't have it and maybe on the second night of a back to back, that's to be expected. Back to back on the road no less, but still two for 11 from the field, two turnovers, one for 8 from three for mello. He did not. He would he looked sloppy, follow it all over himself on a number of different plays. Couldn't get a hold of the basketball a couple of times. It was bad from Carmelo Anthony and the minutes with him at the center position simply did not work and that left a lot of Lakers fans wonder why didn't the Lakers just go back to Dwight Howard who was at least fairly productive and therefore you who's a plus 17. Team high plus 17 on the night and you had the only played 16 minutes and we didn't see him in the fourth quarter at all. So that was certainly a bit of frustration, but LeBron James. 37 points, 13 board 7 to 6 two steals two blocks, 8 of 14 from three. Incredible performance from him. And that almost makes it feel a little bit worse. Because the Lakers kind of that kind of they wasted a great performance from LeBron James. They've wasted a lot of them recently. LeBron scored 30 points in each of the last 6 games and only somehow one one of those 6 games, like get it, you dealt with a lot of players being on the safety protocols list, but lose by 28 to the spurs, if you lose by 18 to the sign to blow elite, I believe to the bulls, just you've wasted a lot of really good LeBron performances as of late. Somebody mentioned in a super chat THT is useless, and Taylor Horton Tucker, another poor performance from him. He four points, two of 7 shooting 5 boards to assist. That was another questionable decision. Why was Taylor and Tucker in the game? And I look there roster is thin right now. They don't have many guys to turn.
"grizzlies " Discussed on The Lead
"Got a real issue on your hands. And so he was building towards an all star caliber year. I mean, he was right on track. And considering the other things that weren't going so well for the grizzlies, you would have thought that losing him would have been really bad news for them. Well, since then, as we mentioned, the grizzlies have been on an absolute tear. There are 8 and one in their last 9 games. And Joe, you recently pointed out that at one point during that stretch, they actually went 5 straight games without trailing. And Joey also recently broke down some of the reasons behind all the success. So let's start with arguably the biggest reason. Their second biggest star, how has Jaron Jackson stepped up in John Wright's absence? Well, Jaron had been really good in jaws absence. He had multiple games with more than 20 points. He has really started to refine his game. I'll tell you you have to find where he is on the floor with how he is playing at this point. Grizzlies 50 is getting to the rim, he is putting the ball on the deck and he's a right handed shooter, but he is just an incredible finisher with the left hand. And it's really because unguardable. Goes right at Carmelo and banks it in. No way Carmelo Anthony can defend Jaron Jackson junior. He got $100 million ish extension and you know he kind of did it more on reputation and flashes of what he had shown earlier in his career because he missed most of last season with the knee injury. And he had gotten off to a slow start, but now they are raving about not only his scoring ability the way he defends. That's block number four. The ability to have on ball blocks by Jaron this year has been phenomenal. I mean, listen, when teams lose their best player, normally, just that's the Lakers or any team that LeBron is on. They fall apart, and the grizzlies have done the opposite. So I think Jaron's one of the guys that deserves a lot of credit for that. You recently spoke with Joan about what he's been doing differently and how he's been able to be so good in this stretch. And you give your answer that was maybe a little surprising, maybe it was unclear if he was joking or not. Can you explain what he said? He gave kind of a boilerplate answer about just staying in the gym. You know, working on my game, which, I mean, roughly 500 of the 500 NBA players do that or some version of it. And then he's like, and I also drink a lot of water. But I'm just working on my ribs day in and day out. And all myself, not taking anything for granted. You know, doing a lot more water. It's basically combo of those two things just work in water. And at that point I kind of raised my hand and said, are you serious? And he's like, yeah. And we kind of get into this back and forth about what he means by that and why drinking water helps him taste good. I'm drinking water, man. That's what I'm talking about. That's literally my question all about water right now. You want a dry? Big shoes water guy like I'm telling you to drink water. It's huge. I'm not really sure he actually answered it while he gave an impassioned defense of like chugging water all day and all night long. I'm not sure he actually articulated why that is helping him. Is this a new thing for him? You know what, I think it is, and I was trying to get him to say like, wow, you know I've replaced my wine with water or I used to be like a big cook zero guy or something like anything like that. But I can say because I had spent time with the grizzlies at the start of the year as well. And he mentioned zayer Williams. I just drink a lot more water. I don't know. I just, I think, instead of like a small bottle of water, I'm getting like a big zire canteen type of thing. I'm just going ham. You know what I mean? That's true. He carries this jug around everywhere he goes. And I hadn't seen Jaron doing that before and now he is. So it's a recent development. I'm suddenly feeling very dehydrated myself. Yeah, me too. Well, Joe, we've also seen two guards really step up while John rent has been out. Can you tell us about the contributions of Dylan Brooks and Desmond vein? So Dylan scores in a number of ways he gets into the lane. He will shoot threes and he's shooting it at an excellent clip for him this year. He's averaging roughly 17 and a half a game. But he is a tenacious defender and he kind of wills himself to play. He is emotional as one way to put it to quote Billy Joel. He can wound with his eyes, like the way he glares at you. He can stare a hole right through your chest. And it's contagious, how intense he is. He looks like he is ready to fight for 48 minutes. And then what's really funny about all this is that to a man the grizzly say that when there's no game, he is not like this at all. He is among the most relaxed, soft spoken guys that they have. And Dylan's explanation for this is that he's hibernating. He's really looking. I exert someone's energy on that floor when it's time to opt in so I'm just usually just chilling to do stuff run out. He actually missed the first 11 or 12 games of the year recovering from hand surgery. And they really missed him. So he's back and they're starting to defend better and jagos down and what does he do? He goes to jaren Jackson. He goes to Desmond Bain. And he says to them, listen with now you need to do this. And we need to do this. And with Jeremy, he says, you need to play like a $100 million plight. There's a $100 million guy. No, we need you to be ready every single night. This is every other max guide. The expect that much or you guys are the media's gonna be like, am worth not being honest. And then to Desmond vein, he says, we, as in you and I, we have to sacrifice. He wouldn't mean like sacrifice shots or sacrifice, you know, some of the things you enjoy playing in a game. So it's more of, well, sacrifice your free time. Sacrifice your nightlife, get better sleep, take care of your body more. And so Desmond is sacrificing his time. He's getting into the gym more for extra shooting, staying late, coming back to the gym at night, that kind of thing. You know, we had to sacrifice something and prioritize the game a little bit more to make sure that you know we were in a good place going into each and every game knowing that we weren't going to be without job. And Desmond was the 30th overall pick of last year's dress. So this is his second year in the league. He's increased his pouring output by upwards of 9 points per game. He's just draining threes all over the place, but he's 6, 5 or 6, 6, he's huge all over. And so you can't move him in the pick and roll game. You can't back him off the wing and traffic in the lane. He's going to win those. You can't knock him backwards. And he's so steady with the ball and he's such a good shooter that it really seems like the grizzlies hit big.

"I would definitely go to one game report home. We've got a one knows as well because we were in the gang. Which is kinda even john boyega hidden mistake and utah. You can conceive see. They're still playing right. Now against the clippers just got make those gonna mistakes and utah made us pay brick born or whatever they did mike. Conley played amazing. You know just a learning lesson for us than definitely thanking future. We'll be ready next year when next year. Come hopefully make a good run in the playoffs. Go to play the regular season a you know. Just a matter. Like coach jenkins was saying joggers. Learn how to close games out and you know. I think the feeling like they got at the bubble of being narrow. But you can put out by portland to play him. Play like all year to be in play offs but plan happening. You know you don't get to play offs like that like man we were right there upping bacon you know take take same energy or that same attitude towards like man. We were right there again. Utah planning once even like we had a legit chance. Beat them in game. Two three and four like you know we could want. Ear does games outside of k. Five you know when they just kinda like were hidden every day into not miss a man with a beat. Those guys popular Right now so you know just a little motivation for the off season into like you know. Obviously everybody got job and dylan and jere and yoenis tile like us have a good team. You like grizzly have like a young team. They're going to be on the uprise. So the one of the brightest futures in the league and especially right considering what you said about just having having the youngest team in the playoffs but not even just that is showing resilience that whenever a team is able to show maturity and in the playoffs. Good signed for two three four years to come on when when the teams young. And they're just it's the talented takes over the top. Not that they really just going down by twenty game to claw back. That's something that a lot of young teams wouldn't do. So it's it's great seeing the grizzlies do that and obscene..

"Your home for everything Lakers just made tonight, but has always it's never just me really suck me and all of you. I thought I was going to have Gary Sheffield Junior and Chris Masters tonight, but both of them got called away to other things. So it's just me tonight talking Lakers basketball with you. I have a feeling even though the language is just extended their winning streak to four games for game winning streak here. There's going to be a lot of negativity in the chat tonight 94 to 90 to win over the Memphis Grizzlies tonight in a game that took a closer than it should have been and required probably a little too much heavy lifting from LeBron, James and Anthony Davis. We're going to break it all down. We'll talk through the whole game. So if you're coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Periscope job Going to be for listening to the Apple podcast version of this. Don't forget leave us a 5-star review over on Apple podcast and give us your questions and comments over in the review section there. Appreciate everybody joining me tonight. I feel good though. This was this was a bad game in terms of energy and and all of that. It was an ugly game, but wasn't a fun game to watch shooting percentages for both teams. Look was not was not fun 94-92. It's like we went back in time what twenty-five years or something like that? We went back into the nineties here. So this is it was a rough one. That's for sure. It was a rough watch but I feel good. I've got a new mic. I've got a new microphone. I'm I'm excited about that. I've got a new microphone I get to use tonight. So maybe you guys will be able to to hear the difference there, but I'm already seeing the comments coming flying in. About how sloppy the game is. Yes. It absolutely was a sloppy game. It was not pretty it was not a pretty it just going through the stats LeBron James 26 points eleven board 7 assists ridiculous. Ridiculous Fade Away shots. It wasn't just the Discord 26 points. It was the way he scored them following away from the basket to even touch the rim on how many of those shots how many of those shots were the Lakers offense completely broke down and they gave the ball to LeBron and said LeBron save us, please and he did he did he'd be fired up these turnaround jumpers just bottom off. Like if you're the Grizzlies, you've got to be thinking this was our chance. We had them we were right there. No ja Morant no Jaren Jackson Jr. We were right there and then LeBron spoiled the party frankly the Grizzlies out the Lakers in this one and we can talk about how difficult it is to win two games on the road that certainly a thing and something to be to consider in the other team's Arena, but the Lakers game LeBron at 26 Anthony Davis had 26 as well ten boards for says three steals three blocks. Eighty was fine as well solid 10 for 20 shooting for of ten. We got to talk about that 1 to 10 from 3. We'll talk about Anthony Davis's three-point shooting but then you look at the rest of the roster where nobody else go Dennis Schroder had 12 points, but he was five fifteen to get their nine points for Montrezl Harrell. That was it. Nobody else of know really put up any significant stats five points for starter ku's Kyle kuzma only five points 3 for Marc Gasol though. He's not a big-time scorer or anything like that. Matthews four points for for Talen horton-tucker. Just no one else really got going in this game and it could be. Hey, it's the end of a road trip. That's always a factor the getaway game that game right before the end of a road trip when you're about to go home. That's yeah. That's a tough one..
