Let's say l. There's there's really a bunch you know what i mean First of all you're dealing with the shortest offseason and in league history For our guys and for the mind heat and You know making sure that our players have the right time to To recover and how their bodies we cover and mentally for them to be key to recover and get ready for another season. That's that's one of them. I think the bullseye Becomes bigger than ever in terms of Every team in the league's going to be circling. The game against the lakers As their their biggest game of the year and you know that old create a another challenge The the new protocols the fact that we're going to be entering our first season in the pandemic outside of the bubble creates a whole nother set of protocols. We have guys in and out of the lineup All the time all year law whether it's For positive test or close exposure to someone that tested positive You know it's it's definitely going to be a more challenging thing and you know everybody I've talked to about repeating the number. One thing you have to understand is the second time through is going to be a lot harder than the first time through and You know. I think our guys have the right perspective on that well repeating talks about repeat. Who did you talk about it.

Yeah you go from the hunters to the hunted. Sure no question about it frank. Vogel head coach or your los angeles lakers with his here on sodano and l z on seventeen. Espn so you mentioned just kind of like having those conversations and whatnot. What of those conversations been like. I mean you've gotta mostly veteran group even though you've got some new pieces to the puzzle that we can discuss in a moment but one of those conversations if any That you've had been like about the challenges of this particular season.

And i had expensive conversation about You know about what it's like and it's all the things we just mentioned. You know the bank bullseyes Tougher you play longer than everybody else last year. Three guys are more fatigue. There's there's more of a You know a feeling good about yourself As opposed to coming in You know with with the edge you know like a team that just fell short. You know what i mean. So you gotta recreate that hunger and and you've got to be more hungry. They're hungry than The teams that that didn't achieve this goal and You know so. There's there's a lot of challenges about when the nba season was released. What was the one thing you're most concerned about scheduling wise. Well probably how soon everything was starting. You know like. I said it's important for guys That that glide and play at the intensity level that they play with in the nba play-off To have some time to to recover mentally and physically and You know like we said is the quickest turnaround in league history and You know something that will have to manage Intelligently early on now lebron had on the shop he had president obama on and they were talking about.

But don't tell me that, you know what you're not worried about looking over your shoulder. Whatever when every single candidate that was that was talked to before you. And the two candidates that. Were offered the job before you both turned it down. Because it was insisted upon them that they have Jason Kidd on their roster on its coaching staff, rather, they wanted Jason Kidd in the mix. Jason Kidd is gonna be the head coach for the Los Angeles Lakers within the next two years. The left he keeps his hands clean. That's that that's the prevailing thought process and thinking to everyone. So for you to sit up and say with a straight face that you're not concerned looking over your shoulder. They can only be one reason that you're not concerned, and that is because you completely satisfied. We'll get your five million a year as a head coach because nobody was standing at the door ready to offer you a job for their franchise fee about that. That could be the only reason she's receiving. They last question before we let you go. And max as magic this a couple of different ways in magic really didn't get to the crux of the issue. Is it just a coincidence? That Koby was rob point. Kaz client, and rob plaguing? Kobe have a relationship or is there some? Level Koby involved with some of the decision making that's taking place with the Laker organization right now.

Lakers Rumors: Jason Kidd Hired as LA Assistant to Lure Giannis in Free Agency
"Right. So the Lakers have said that they want Jason Kidd on their coaching staff to serve as a veteran assistant for Frank Vogel man to mentor Lonzo. But they may have another more ambitious reason as well. According to Steve Popper, Newsday a person familiar with the Lakers process said that kid was brought to Los Angeles to attract Janas, enter the Coon boats, who the Lakers when he becomes a free agent in two years, and the buck star could become an unrestricted free agents Janas played for kid Imma walkie for three and a half seasons beginning in his second season in the league, that's a little pipedream isn't it? Just hire good. Coach. He's about one with this, this idea if they add IMAX level player this year, and Anthony Davis via trade. That would take them out of the honest contention in two thousand twenty one they also have LeBron still. And he has a forty one million dollar player option for twenty one twenty two. So it's possible that LeBron chooses to opt out. And lead the Lakers at that time. And then they had us as there in his prime replacement, but the my issues, this is already come out this year and said he's not leaving the bucks. No, he's not. I, I don't. I don't feel. I do not feel with Yaish. Listen, there's no reason to leave the world's changed, you can make money anywhere. He's got a gray better coach in Milwaukee than potentially he'd have anywhere else. And for the record like Damian Lillard, if you trust the GM, if you like the city if you trust the coach and you're winning or support.

Deal which was to fewer than Tyron Lou demanded the Lakers also hired Jason Kidd is the lead assistant. But wait, there's more. Phil Jackson was reportedly consulted on Vogel and blessed the decision will on how does this higher with you? How like Frank Vogel? I think Frank Vogel has been a worthy coach like LeBron also likes entertaining the notion of people that he has been rivals within the past bringing them aboard. Which is why he had you know, crazy man from Vogel's team from Indiana come with them last year. Yeah. Yeah. So LeBron seems okay with that rivals is a certain connection. He has with him. And he probably knows he played against Frank Vogel may really respect Frank. So I'm not going to sit here and diminish Frank Vogel. I don't know what the Lakers doing. I'm going to and try to pretend like I know what the link is doing. So if you know take over there are two things that are interesting to me one is definitely going to happen. Lebron going to wake up one day, and he's going to say I want to play for this guy anymore, and he'll do to him what he did to David black and Jason Kidd moves right up in and he becomes present. Jason because he he won't be Frank Vogel. That's why he wants to play. So he wants to play for the next guy. The second thing that interests me is the reporting of the influence that Kurt Rambis apparently has coaching Linda Rambus hurt with whole here is Kurt Rambus is record as and NBA thirty two and one thirty to sixty five and one sixty four with thirty two was Minnesota. What what does he know about coaching record sixty five and one sixty four what what is he going to say? Basketball includes coaching just because you can't coach yourself.

How do you not run into the Miami Heat? And LeBron James now Vogel James are on the same side. Well, first off Frank Vogel is a respected coach in is Lee in on. No that is probably not the big names flash higher. That franchise light the Los Angeles Lakers fans are used to.

Frank Vogel Set to Be Lakers Head Coach; Kidd Tapped as Assistant
"Frank Vogel hired as the head coach of the Lakers. They went with auction see, and that's pretty hard to pal it. If you're a Lakers fan going with action, see as I said earlier, the two coaching searches in Los Angeles UCLA in the Los Angeles, Lakers planning on co authoring a book on how to conduct a coaching search because both went very very smoothly. But the story coming out of this and even after the Magic Johnson resignation and all that and now with going with option C where you got money. Wave's turning your down for the sons Tyler say, no, I don't want the three year deal and the Jason Kidd becoming an assistant because Vogel acquiescence said. Yep. A I'm fine with that. I'll take the three year deal. Now, the conversation turns to what happens with LeBron James and should LeBron James just get out of there. Stephen a Smith of the Stephen a Smith show referenced whether or not they should trade. Lebron you've got folks close to Jeanie Buss imploring her to trade LeBron James he does not have a no trade clause. And now you haven't given them to coach that he wanted. Lebron James's quality been about the business of trying to get a wide Lennon to come to the Los Angeles Lakers his stead at a loss Angeles Clippers so making a move like this by not bringing in a coach that he wants not securing that the coach said he wants in Los Angeles is his guy you never know what Domino's a going to fall right now. That was Stephen a Smith appearing on. Sportscenter discussing the possibility of LeBron James being traded, which to me is look there are people who know heck of a lot more and are more. Well connected than I am in this thing. I think it is one of these silliest topics that that we've talked about here at ESPN in quite some time. Is it a possibility? To me. It is so hard to fathom the Los Angeles Lakers deciding to trade him or even LeBron admitting failure going this was the wrong move. And and having to swallow his pride and ego. I need to get out of here. Both of those things. I don't envision any of that happening. Myron do I don't envision it happening. But it's not crazy. It's crazy because we're in America in our sports stars. Don't get traded to that degree. They thought they signed that the teams they used their power and free agency. But you don't trade your star quarterbacks. Your star NBA players your star baseball players. Whereas in soccer, you know, your name are you pod leisure? And all those all those guys have switched teams, you know in the last decade or so, and it's not outrageous for happening to support like that. I think the problem is if you're LeBron it's how do you want to in your

All the challenges facing Frank Vogel, LeBron and the Lakers
"In the big story, of course, in the NBA is dude Frank Vogel on did you win the pool, by the way on the next Laker coach. Did you have Frank Vogel? Brinton was gonna be asking all the questions. What do you think surprise? Oh, yeah. I was the pri-. Well, I I was the price, you know, a few days ago in the whole Tyron Lutheran fell apart, and the fact of money Williams would rather go coach the Phoenix Suns Lincoln's, and you know. Luke Walton is happy coach in the Sacramento canes instead of the Los Angeles Lakers. I mean. Here really in trouble. Now, it could get better. There's there's a way to look at this summer where could get there. We about that in a minute if you want to, but you know. Frank pogo coaching LeBron right? Good luck within there. And then having Jason Kidd as your system, and you know, LeBron chaser gonna be whispering to each other the whole time their brands, and there was a live respect between them when they were players. Lebron sort of took over from Jason Kidd, triple double guy in the NBA. So I just think they they might have made dysfunctional place a little bit more dysfunctional that was possible. Now, if they if they get the players they need everything's better. So what if? Kyrie Irving to go there, you know. And if he goes there, maybe Davis strong arms trade, the Laker says look everybody, I'm I'm only going to go. The Lakers don't even bother trying to trade for me. Promise you I'm gonna opt out leave as a free agent after next season. Go lakers. Out that way that we can get them. And if they went ahead and son Kyrie or somebody else like that. They could they could make Davis Nelson. You got LeBron Davis. Lebron Jimmy Butler, whoever it is anti Davis. Now, all of a sudden we're talking about the Lakers and the whole different of fear right now. Again, now on paper that looks like that would sound like a really good team. But it seems like there would be a really big power struggle if they had Vogel with LeBron James kyri, some of the other players you just mentioned how would they avoid that blowing up in their face? Well, it is a good question because you know, Frank Vogel is not he's not Tyron Louise, not somebody that knows these guys. And clearly he was not the first choice. So he goes into it from a position of weakness. That's for sure he's got a three year contract with Massey's number of years. Lebron has so they were not interested clearly making a big time investment coach for long-haul while he side your contracts. So he would have to deal with that. But I would think LeBron with care of a lot of that stuff. A lot of that power struggle within the team on the players team. Who would be the number two guy who would be the top guy alongside. Lebron? Would it be would be Davis? Lebron with after figure that out that wouldn't be for the coach. Lebron figuring it out most of the time he figured that out because he needs to he wants to win a championship enough to everybody on the same page. So I think that part of it. It's it's a great way of looking at it. But but that's the one good thing. Lebron what bring you know while apart? He'd be people. Look you come here, and I'll make sure this team work and the only worry about the coach you'll need to worry about rob point or anything else. I can make this work and credible could say I think most players would believe he could make a work in. How does that hiring process? Go obviously, Jason Kidd involved in they have to LeBron involved. I mean, they just I don't think they call up and say, guess what his coaches how does that train?

"He led him the Eastern Conference finals and twenty thirteen twenty fourteen the big road block there. Lebron James who now is his lead player wold reports. It's a three year deal and Jason Kidd joins us staff as lead as Sistan. How about that? Jay kid angle. Dave mcmenamin ride win wars eyebrows raised provide this insight festival, of course, he's going to come in the situation when it time is right at the entire coaching staff. Looks like. And go from there. The problem is with LeBron as we all know, sometimes the perception becomes stronger than the reality of thing. And with the reputation that LeBron has already and the reputation that Jason Kidd has already what happens if the cameras catch LeBron having a conversation with coach Jason Kidd during a heated moment of the game. That's a normal occurrence, but guess what those type of things that begin at a little bit of kindling that can turn into a raging wildfire. When people consider the coaching ability of Frank Vogel, even though he technically the head coach in the situation in a vacuum. It it's it's looks like a terrible coaching staff. You are building you are building in a scenario where the players can go to the assistant coach who has going to have a lot more clout than head coach. It's never the way you'd wanna you'd wanna build a staff that remains. Mystery to me why the Lakers field this way best, you know? But I I also think you know, Frank Boba has proven he's a good coach in the NBA. I think they're they're putting waits around his ankles right now with the way they decide to do this own young Masuku's covered. Jake kid back to his nets years feels and that would have been a good way to go going kids route as the head coach he joined game night in my mind. I think that Jason Kidd might have been better number one head coach. But I think maybe, you know, the Lakers ethic, they there's a lot of baggage that comes with Jason Kidd. Obviously, I think everybody knows that. And so I think what they wanted all along with Jason Kidd after they interviewed him ago. I think that he made an impression on them, especially when it came to element of Lonzo Brandon Ingram Macau Kouzmin. And so I think they liked what they heard from him. But as a number one fisted also. Think they like the fact that LeBron James respect Jason Kidd back to their playing days. And they're their days teenage team USA, so Jason Kidd checks the box off in those in those regards which are big boxes for the Lakers. Let's look forward to because that roster that roster needs to be tweaked as well. Whoa. Draws reporting. The Cavs interviewed for head coaching candidates in Denver.

Lakers reportedly to interview former Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff as coaching search continues
"B Bickerstaff is going to interview for the Lakers. Head coaching position at Bernie, son. It is son. Yes, he spent two seasons as the grizzlies head coach and went forty eight and ninety seven he was also the interim head coach in Houston after Kevin McHale was fired right before the rockets hired Mike, Dan, Tony. He's scheduled to meet with Jeanie Buss. Rob Pelinka Joey bus, Jesse bus, Tim, Harris. And of course, Linda and Kurt Rambis. And yes, his father is Bernie Bickerstaff interim coach five games before. Mike Brown after Mike Brown was fired. But he looks like his dad, of course, you would he's well worked. These are the Lakers coaching candidates, and this is their last two seasons as head coaches JV Bickerstaff was fifteen and forty eight and thirty three and forty nine before he was fired Frank Vogel was twenty nine and fifty three and twenty five and fifty seven for he was fired Jason Kidd, forty two in forty twenty three twenty two five. Admits season final Holland's ten and twenty seven in his last season was fired mid season. And Mike Woodson was thirty seven and forty five before he was fired. That is you'll want to coaching pool. I I don't know enough about J V Bickerstaff to have an opinion. But he's interesting. I always liked his dad. Interesting list. My feeling is that they have completely blue completely blown this coaching. Search not been good. They they should have got money Williams. If that was the guy that they wanted they should've paid whatever and giving him whatever it is. He wanted to get him. Because what I feel like is. If you have someone in mind, that's your number one guy the moment that it goes out to the public. That is your number one guy. He is now your guy otherwise you look like a second option, and you're the Lakers. You can't be the second option. And then when you go to your number two guy, and he turns you down your now on your third option. And everyone knows this is your third option. Well, that's why you know, it's amazing to me. How stuff gets out like?
Monty Williams the Suns' Top Target for Coach - Where does that leave the Lakers?
"Williams manned up going to Phoenix. Which would which would now put the Lakers coaching search back at three if kids in the mix, it would be either Tyronn Lue whose scheduled interview again tomorrow Juwan Howard who scheduled interview later in the week or kid if Monte goes to Phoenix or as Greg suggested he could also get the job in Philadelphia if they fire Brett Brown, but it appears Brett Brown is on the verge of getting them to the. Second round, by the way to let's not bury the lead on something. This interview was conducted by rob Pelinka and Kurt Rambus, which would lead you. I've been telling people is that who's do. I I understand that. But I'm saying it leads you to believe that part of this. Vacuum isn't just being taken up the power. Vacuum isn't just being sucked up by rob Pelinka. Kurt Rambis is putting himself in a position to gain more power. Well, I think it's already there. However, you want to phrase it it's been reported. And I, you know, a full disclosure here. Kurt's a neighbor of mine, I know him I like them. Occurred Kurt started traveling with us in the middle of the season. Just to be basically an observer. Well, I mean he was brought on as I forget the exact title by magic. I think it was last year like a basketball L salt because something like that like it or not the Lakers are a family business. The Lakers in US have this comment. Yes, they do. They they USC hires Trojans because they think Trojans will get we'll get there say something as an alum. I don't like it. Yeah. And what the Lakers are cutting a page out of that. I mean, if you want to really find the connective tissue. Dr bus was a Trojan there you go. But I think so I think you're going to hear Kurtz name a lot. I think Kurtz going to be around giving Jeannie trust him. And he's going to be giving nothing personal against Kurt. This is not how I do it. I think they are making a real mistake that insulate I just mean the tendency towards installation right there making a real mistake. But okay, so Kurt Rambis, and rob Pelinka interviewed Jason Kidd yesterday doesn't this prove that I'm right in Mason's wrong. That there is no shadow console. No, she does this. Honestly does this team? So far seem organized enough to pull off the shadow GM thing with women talking about that that would be an incredibly hard thing in this day and age to even orchestrate no I mean, I would love to feel confident enough in the Lakers that they could actually pull off the shadow GM very hard to do. Yeah. I don't feel. They can do it hard to do.

An organization like the Lakers that doesn't do anything by the book seemingly and sometimes are hypocrites and do self self involved wounds to themselves. It would not shock me. If at the end of all this and this season is evaluated. Jeanie Buss tells the front office at Nope. My coaches, Luke Walton you guys figure out the rest and by all accounts, Luke, Walton has been doing a great job. He did get that vote of confidence by the franchise back in October. He's had to deal with all this in year, one of LeBron coming into the fold, but how's he handled all the rumors surrounding Jason Kidd and other potential coaching replacements. I mean, he's felt the heat literally since Magic Johnson and rob Pelinka

"And now he was holding the arm right there. And then when you see the cornerback has his arm on the receivers. All right. Well, pass interference. You're going to have fifty calls a game. But if I let sound I'm looking at that part of the play what if I see holding because I think we all know that there's holding it feels like on every play. Offensive holding on every play. So now all of a sudden go look at the tackle. You know, he's holding him. You know, it's just a it's a slippery slope to go down. But I think the saints are just waiting for something that sort of says, hey, we're sorry. We screwed you out of going to the Super Bowl. I mentioned this at the end of last hour, and it's Jason Kidd on possibly coaching. The Lakers, Jason Kidd, who's a hall of Famer and coached the Milwaukee Bucks. He had this to say on that opportunity. If it does arise and what he thinks of the Lakers when you look at the Lakers as a whole it's as a franchise that is one of the best in the world, not just, you know, an MBA but the world, and so if you've ever had the opportunity to where perp one goal you can't turn that down as a coach as a player because they're all about championships. And so they have a process they had a young team. And then LeBron comes and kind of sped up things. And so. No he wants to win now. But I think again it takes time. And I thought again loop was doing a great job at at coaching those young guys and LeBron for the first year. It's Jason Kidd on the mothership. There been reports, you know, this isn't any surprise Jason Kidd's name is on the short list here is LeBron gonna listen to Jason Kidd. Tyron Lou she gonna listen to him Brian Shaw, you're gonna listen to him. Is there somebody else that would come in? And are you just figure head there? I don't know Jason Kidd is on the shortlist. I'm just going by what has been reported. And by the way, they still have a coach who's still employed here, which is kind of awkward when they're talking about this the other part of this is Jason Kidd. I guess is a candidate and his al-matar cow. They fired their head coach. But I asked the danettes have you ever seen a rule where you have to have a college degree to coach an NC double A team? And I don't know if it's required by the NCWA, but we found out they don't and then I thought well, Jason Kidd. I don't believe graduated from count. He was an early entrant. You know, he went early, but we went through all the openings currently right now, and they all ask for at least a bachelor's degree. So I don't know if Jason Kidd can coach cow. I don't know if he has to have a degree. I don't know if it's a school by school basis here, but the NC double A doesn't require you to have that. But I'm I'm assuming all these coaches everybody has a bachelor's degree. Didn't you have a situation with an assistant coach at Kentucky who was at self Florida, maybe and found out he didn't have a degree. He had to go back to school to get his degree. And then I think he ended up coaching at Manhattan if that sounds right now trying to hit the way back machine here flashbacks. Yeah. Polling can they fire up a honorary degree on a Tuesday for Jason Kidd and higher on a Wednesday. Does he get professional credit for being a hall of Famer? I don't know how that works. Yes. Sure. There could be a small honorarium made from the student fund. That guy who was helping all those kids get into schools can help Jason Kidd get a degree here before he goes to prison. But I I don't know if Jason Kidd can coach cow if done have a college degree. A final exam to make them shoot like ten threes. If he makes half. Oh, not a deep shooter. But he's probably learned to be a better three point shooter. Yes, mclovin. Yeah. Late Jason Kidd could hit those early early. No, no, not at all. Already a poll question. Mclovin update the poll results?.

"This will not be the first time that someone is treated the number two pig. Didn't. They didn't Dallas trae Jason Kidd okay. But that was the Mavericks who were in chaos, ownership, chaos, and GM k. I know Jason Kidd wasn't from Dallas, Texas. No, he didn't go to his hometown him, but at the end of the day, Magic Johnson has an obligation. If he feels he can make this team better by moving Lonzo within he should do that. So I often tell you that I try to look between the lines of what LeBron says, but in this case, I'm not gonna look between the lines because I think he is speaking from the heart when he speaks about a kindred spirit that has Lonzo ball because I think Lonzo of any other human on this planet is the closest to being able to relate to what LeBron went through at age eighteen or fifteen, sixteen seventeen eighteen and vice versa that LeBron can relate to what lonzo's gone through. And by the way, at least LeBron didn't. Unfortunately, he didn't have a father around, but he didn't have a father like lavar who was just heaping. Impossible pressure on her shoulders as he came out of Saint Vincent Saint Mary, right? Maybe that could be a blessing and the curse because he did have his father there everyday to instill certain values to make sure he was at practice to drive him. Sometimes you need that extra booth. And when he may think mom did to go. But I'm just saying, so it was great. You know, I don't always want to look at the bar and some of his antics is being overbearing. I think he did a very good job with those boys. He did the best job that he possibly could and it turned out, okay. He has one son in NBA could possibly have another baby. Boy. We'll see he might, but Lonzo ball to me comes across as a model citizen and a great kid like, I don't know what's not to like about it except you don't love his game..

"With jason kidd a at the helm and despite the new scheme they're still giving up the same ugly shot distribution defensively there was disconcerting split which is sort of coming to bear a little bit now where they were fourth and defensive rating during the time deputy had that has the has the helm but when you look at the shots they're giving up you would say will that's not going to continue so during that time and they were opponents were shooting like amazingly badly on rob emery women though there are still yet it from everywhere yeah yeah so they were giving up the most the highest proportion of opponents shots at the rim in the entirely thirty nine point five percent of opponent shots which is ludicrously high they were not forcing the shots which is another calibrate her quote unquote forcing the right shots there were thirdlowest there and then with threes was thirty point two percent but part of the reason that was comparatively low is because they're giving so much up at the rim they were are five percent five percent more shots at the rim than the league average team middle team during that time but what was said living them defensively visit teams weren't making anything there were thirdlowest an opponent 3point shooting percentage lowest opponent mid range percentage and then middle of the road at the rim and generally speaking teams are better controlling the frequency than they are controlling the percentages and so as those start to go back to normal this defense will shade out other than the forcing turnovers which they'd been strong on their second in the league since printed to cover for an interesting data point thirty oath throw kids scheme was supposed to give up all the shots at the rim and force a turn turnovers will they change the scheme and they still force a bunch journals they still go bunch shots through remote and three so maybe it's the personnel maybe if the execution may be it wasn't the scheme that after all proud so though i do still maintain that the ski wasn't a optimal couple of notes on their shooters khris middleton is taken three hundred seventy seven shots from midrange 2s outside the paint but he is shooting an absolutely scorching fifty one point five percent on a lot of those plays ourself created a few of them are pump fake fur.
