Jerry west who was his longtime teammate with the lakers was on with mason and ireland with ramona who was information today and they had him on. And you know. I thought jerry really. He nailed it when he said that. You know elgin baylor was really the first star to put the lakers on the map. Let's hear well for here. And then particularly. I think the first two or three years but we you know became kind of a dynamic duo in terms of scoring and and driving his team to win I think the sad thing about it was that Doing dad era heck. We were on the last page of the newspapers. I remember vividly our first few years In sports sports arena. You go there and the people would be rooting for other teams. And it wasn't until while until we started getting into the playoffs and that seems to Kind of Get people's involvement going. It seems to be more interest that doing those playoff periods Fans started turning out. And of course he was you know he was the king of the hill But i was just you know kind of his running mate and I think together It was a pretty big combination. But there's no question. Is that his charisma. Holding the court. was special and and today's era he would he would have been all over the place but I did not look at him like that. I just looked at him as a basketball player. That had great skill and great determination. I looked at him more as a friend. And someone who shared much much more than just the basketball pointing itself

You know a lot of people. Michael thinks that you know maybe another team like denver. Dallas could sneak in there and load up on a lot of wins in the regular season in the lakers will play it and play it soft and not worry about getting the most wins.

"Start with what i think is the most fascinating story of the day little offbeat little out there little weird but absolutely interesting. Do you know where i'm going. I disagree with you about all that but go ahead and explain you. Don't think it's fascinating and this guy is full of crap. No the voice okay. Let's let's set it up so this is a story that started bubble up earlier this week. A guy named johnny wilks is suing jerry west for not making the two point five million dollar payment that he was promised in exchange for his help in landing by the clippers and the clippers went on denied. The claims and said jerry. West didn't even know this guy today way. When did the cooper say that in their statement clippers or providing. Nba evidence that these allegations are false. Right but i've never heard the cooper see. You never knew this guy okay. I'll read the clippers statement lawsuit kabajani wha- replete with inaccuracies allegations are baseless. The clippers are fully cooperating the nba in this investigation <hes>. Blah blah blah clippers are providing the nba with evidence that the allegations are false. They never denied specifically nine. That's johnny wolverine on the voice mail. So there's a voicemail and so the clippers are out denying it. Meanwhile this guy named johnny wilkes released a voicemail that clearly jerry west right. No no dispute that it's jerry west right right <hes>. The jerry west left on johnny wilks phone hit that hordic. Excuse me this. Is jerry calling <hes>. You know. I really want to thank you for know trying to help her. This morning. that everyone over the lakers can thank going getting <hes>. I just. I had hard to believe that he would want to go to. This show. Very would not even be winning. Getty name in the paper. And he wouldn't be the face of the franchise s richer might be the best player on the team but <hes>. Hope things are well and will again.

I'll take care talk you sometimes so so really really appreciate your help really appreciate your offering to take him to. Dinner is a long way from offering him. Two point five million dollars. And did you see the other stuff. This guy wilks is alleging was on the table. That's the most fast. Okay so now. I know why the nba opened up an investigation. Or yesterday you ask me well. Why if this guy is just some money grubber. Why would the nba care. Here's why they care in the lawsuit wilkes also alleges that the if leonard signed with the clippers leonard uncle dennis would receive a house in southern california along with travel expense and that clippers owner steve balmer would fund a hundred million dollar marketing campaign for kawhi leonard. So if if any of that is true that is a blatant violation of the. That's circumventing the salary cap rules. You're giving him value more over and above what his contract pays right. But i think this guy loses all credibility when he says that jerry west was going to give them two point five million dollars just for helping him talked to qui- jerry west doesn't need johnny wilks to talk to anybody and so i have trouble believing this guy. Johnny wilks is. I mean if lie about that chances are you would lie about this. One hundred million dollar marketing campaign the slush fund for uncle. Danettes you are. You actually think this guy. Johnny wilks is telling the truth. Look it's the clippers. It's the clippers you know. They were desperate for desperate for them. They're nowhere without kawhi. He's become the second where them while they're nowhere nowhere with them to write <hes>. But but this is the centerpiece of their france. The cornerstone that they're building around. Why would they not go to the wall and do anything. It took to get cold leonard. Well i i think the opened an investigation because of those last two points. They made the gets a house and travel expense account and the one hundred million dollar marketing campaign for quiet. You can't do that. Because then free agency is a complete sham. It just goes to ever has the most money if you can offer all that other stuff. So that's why they're looking into it now. They're looking into it. Because this johnny wilks lawsuit consistent. Johnny woke lot is going to say this stuff wouldn't even come up without johnny walk so there's already credibility in the lawsuit. I don't think well no. I disagree that the johnny looks credible in any way. But here's what. Here's what. I'll say i've known jerry west for thirty years. I don't think jerry west would be this stupid now. Of course i could be wrong but jerry's been one of the most upfront direct. And he's almost too candid. Your can be very very candid with everybody. He deals with the i n for johnny. Will you know it's. He's shooting at the king here. Johnny wilks and there's so many people know jerry and he has such a body of work that would indicate he would never do anything like this. That i don't think johnny luke's can win. Unless he has another audiotape. Where with jerry sing. I'm going to give you two point. Five million if you get us why. I think his lawsuits dead in the water. What do you think well. you know. it's interesting. I think there might be something here. Yeah i don't know how you're getting there. This is this is steve bomber. This is a guy who's made of money. This was a guy who's desperate to get his team on the map in los angeles where they are not on the map. Frankly haven't been on the map and certainly worn on the map before qui- so is it. Possible that steve balmer offered extra monetary benefit to kawai in order to get them. I think that's worth an investigation.

The Los Angeles Clippers Have Fired Doc Rivers
"Another myth another legend was fired Bob and I don't you were shocked as I was I, didn't see this coming where Doc rivers we had on the podcast you and I are both huge fans of doc as a human being as a coach. I don't. I. Don't know where I stand right now. Obviously, he is blown some big leads the latest being one in the bubble. Denver and with a team that let's face it. Steve. Balmer paid doc rivers big money to win a championship not not be eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in the in the western conference semifinals so Valid or not valid to let doc rivers go. I knew that we all knew that losing another three to one was not a good thing to have on on anyone's resume to do it twice in. Three years. And the do it with this owner as you said, who invested the overpaid for the team I think even by modern standards that teams are worthy he he got a little giddy with his two billion dollar plus purchase of the clippers the Lakers we could see but not the clippers. So okay, he's invested in this and I worried about it a little bit but I didn't think it would happen. I thought it was a possibility of Steve Bomber angry. But, I, thought it was an of course couching it. It's mutual ha you know coming out of the usual walk away from that money it's the modern. Thing to do that say it's mutual nationally I felt badly because I am very proprietary to a doctor and I have communicate with him already. But. It's understandable that an owner. Successful businessman. Odyssey's bomber is a highly successful with that investment. I I don't know what I don't know Jeff is the level of his own personal basketball acumen. I don't know how much he thinks. He knows he knows more doesn't knows more than that part I don't know you know. Here's what I'll tell you about. Here's what I'll tell you I. Don't think this was all Steve. Balmer. My guess is Jerry West who they pay a ton of money as a consultant. Okay. As a consultant. Yeah. Good point is Jerry West played a significant. In this move and now the question will be. What what's next in the big thing with doc and you and I know this we've been around enough. Great human being great communicator. But the biggest words that you would hear from players about doc dating back to the Celtics was a little bit of a Country Club, right? It's it's easy doctors a practice much. Older players veterans love, them. Again it's where you want to go to and the latter part of your. Extend Your career. and You wonder if that played a huge part here because certainly the clippers didn't look like there were in tiptop condition in the bubble weather. It was Knox fault whether it's back that mantras Harrow had a death in the family and didn't come into the bubble too late whether it's a fact that Lou Williams left the bubble and came back the Patrick Beverley. There were there were a lot of issues. But ultimately. It. Probably does follow on doc in a sense that you had the pieces you had the pieces. You shouldn't be watching if you're the clippers, you can't be watching the Los Angeles Lakers right now compete for

NBA trade deadline: Winners, losers and teams in between
"Flurry of trades in the NBA a blockbuster in baseball mortar common colds to memorialize Kobe Bryant and highly visible way joined by ESPN's Howard Bryant good morning hours good morning Scott how are you I'm fine thanks is awesome aggressive deals in the NBA trade at the trade deadline who do you rack up as the winners and losers well and I'm not sure about the winners and losers of the trade deadline but certainly the winners and losers right now of the first half of the season you've got a look at the Lakers in the west and and the Milwaukee Bucks I think they are head and shoulders above everybody else how could you hold on for a moment our you know head yes government for you almost got me for a second there's got yeah Milwaukee is terrific and and they're great they're holding on the crushed Philadelphia the other night I thought coming into the season it was gonna be Philadelphia Milwaukee Los Angeles and Los Angeles Lakers and the clippers but I'm not too sure about the other two yet but we've got a long way to go I think trade deadline wise I think Miami Heat got much much better they got on great good dollar they made a very good deal with Memphis I think that Philadelphia tried to shore up of making a deal with with the warriors and de Angelo Russell going to Minnesota who knows what that's gonna do maybe there's a late run there but the bottom line is coming forward right now I still think that you've got two teams in this league disappointed the Boston Celtics didn't do anything but I think it's the box and the Lakers right now an official memorial for Kobe Bryant's been set for February twenty fourth they've been calls to make his image a permanent part of the game you even rent a Poland that did I did I read a little Twitter poll this morning which was soundly rejected to replace Kobe Bryant is Jerry west to is the logo of the NBA with cut him a cell away from the silhouette of your request yes absolutely and it would have been fitting in some ways because Jerry west was the the man behind making sure Kobe Bryant ended up with the Lakers making that draft day trade with the Charlotte Hornets and I I understand add on one on one level the need or they want to want to memorialize Kobe I also understand that the NBA has been around since nineteen forty seven and maybe it's time to create a new logo Jerry west has been there fifty years since nineteen sixty nine however I do think that if you're going to think about and I'm a new logo or and a modern logo it's probably got to be Michael Jordan right or but I got an arm and a leg yeah but I also understand the desire right now for people to feel that something should be done for Kobe Bryant after after all that happened Boston Red Sox LA Dodgers Minnesota Twins switching sports agreed to a three team trade Tuesday that's been perhaps delay it has been delayed because of some medical records Mookie Betts has what they call a generational player MVP Golden Gloves traded to the Dodgers are the red Sox making the worst roster decision since they sold Babe Ruth's contract well if you red Sox fans are very happy about it especially because it's a generational player Mookie Betts is a beloved player two years ago he wins the M. B. P. and they won the World Series you're looking at a guy that fans just adore and it's a very cynical move in some ways but it also may very well be a huge business deal for them because number one we know that super star players now at this level after Manny Machado deal after the Bryce Harper deal your it in and now the the Gerrit Cole deal you're looking at three hundred and fifty four hundred million dollars to sign a player and if Mookie Betts didn't want to play with the red Sox will find out over the next several weeks and months if that was the case then of course they had to move them but on the other hand if that's not the case the red Sox are a super power they can sign whoever they want they've got money it's looking like a cynical deal we will see I'm good at and by the way I got as you know your cubs aren't far behind because you've got a guy like Chris Brian who's another cornerstone player and what does that mean for the cubs keep these players and the fans love him yeah thank you very much ESPN's Howard Bryant thanks so much no my pleasure

I'm I'm guessing I mean all the deals that read did you know but it was a different N._B._A.. Back then but I always thought that if whenever Red Auerbach would call that I wouldn't want to answer like this can't be good if reds calling here yes it does seem like if you're on a phone call Red Auerbach Jerry West and they're suggesting trade. You should know that you're losing that trade that they agree to write like let's say Yeah Jerry West is I. We have a deal in principle. I would be like I'm hanging up because that means that's a bad move for hey we're interested in such and such why I'd be nervous though whenever Jerry would call Jerry West Hall of Famer Clipper Special Consultant former warriors executive and former clippers G._M.. Former Laker G._M.. I Jerry how are you. I'm fine. Thank you are you. I'm doing okay. How excited are you well? It's was pretty Good Friday night. I guess a couple of days ago. If if you get few days ago for the for the clippers and <hes> you know obviously it bought a lot of excitement I think everyone involved <hes> in in acquiring the two players that we acquired so pretty special day for <hes> southern California basketball particularly with guys at the Lakers have Lebron and Anthony so <hes> been <hes> been pretty cool time from basketball in southern California. What role did you play and bringing Kawhi Leonard to town very small okay? I just had a voice <hes> our front office is really terrific okay and <hes> they all behind the scene saying Lawrence Frings so Michael Winger and Trent Radin. They were really <hes> on top of this thing the whole way and you know when new initially today it's just so different than the players are free to move around. <hes> agents obviously employers contribute where where they go at. I've never seen anything like it. We're players can recruit other players but <hes> I guess it's it's a modern day N._B._A.. And <hes> the I think it's it's an awkward situation. When when you're in the east positions <hes> too high have an opportunity to maybe acquire a player like like the ones we've talked about and more importantly ah for the team that gets them? It really does wonders for franchise. <hes> it just hard to describe the excitement <hes> within the clipper organization.

"If you like that scene, you'll love our league that exactly I feel like that. It's the spiritual brother of our league. I just hope nobody gets hurt like that. That's the biggest issue that I have here because I just don't have replacements. Oh, Nabis, you're concerned about our. Hell mill. No, no, no. I got to do a show. And that's what I'm worried about. You might have to hire some more people because someone theater, we were joking about what if all of a sudden Ray Allen was back, there wearing a utility belt. Could is he eligible like we need bringers rail is not coming in again. Well, that's ever. No, no. Now he wasn't that upset. I think he was really surprised that I was telling him that there was a flaw in his shot. I, I do think that there was. I think he. If we could have thought bubbles with Ray on when I'm saying, you know, the balls resting on the palm of your hand a little bit too much there. And that's when we started to have that weird exchange. It'd have been like if he was, you know, Dan back in the nineties. Here's how you in key should have done sportscenter. That'd be exactly what I would have respected him for saying that, right? I would have been okay with that. Sure I would have been better if he said that to me than he was with me saying to him because these one of the great shooters of all handled it. Well, I mean he did. I he looked at you. Like are you crazy you Syria? And then he was like, yeah. Okay. All right guy. Okay. Can we agree on one thing with me, critiquing rail, and shot was the ball resting on the palm of his hand? Okay. That's all I was saying to Ray is the great ones. Don't have the ball resting on the poem their hand, but they're on their fingertips his existence. Disproves your theory, doesn't it? I think he got a little lazy with his jumper since he retired and I was just pointing out Ray shooter shoot for the rest of their lives. Okay. Don't start slacking come on homes. Message sent loud. And if it means Ray doesn't come back, but he's at home right now practicing and saying, can't on hunting. Would you look and see if the balls or the palm of my hands? When I shoot you think he's gonna regret what could have been with his career after that day. Like I just done dance at I would have been one of the greater shooters of all time, even greater than it was. Okay. I did this to a guy who played in the big east, and he actually started in the big east for a couple of years. I'll I mean. No. But I did meet with him and he wasn't a great shooter. And in the first five minutes, I said, well, this is what you're doing wrong. And he goes, no one's ever told me that. And he started two years in the big east. And I said, here's what's wrong with your shot. That was it. He didn't take offense to it. He said, thank you. Yes. It's an interesting comparison that you make. Because starting two years in the big east and being one of the greatest shooters in NBA history are like, right. Next thirty close. Yeah, pretty close. But it's me trouble shooting. And I'll do that. I could never do that to Jerry West because Jerry the ultimate shot. So I'd never do that. The great Jerry West he will join us coming up next, and we'll talk about this, great on, you know, knowing, how humble Jerry, West is, I want to know what that reaction was, like, when he heard that the president was going to ward him, the presidential medal of freedom, the highest honor that a civilian can get he'll talk to us about that coming up next twenty two after the hour here on the Dan Patrick show.

LeBron James and the Winning Basketball Play
"Let me defend Kevin. So Steve Kerr came out and said I want him shooting thirty times a game. And I think Steve Kerr smart, but I think Steve Kerr's wrong here. Here's why I always defended LeBron James on this. Lebron always made the winning basketball play LeBron's not Michael Jordan, LeBron's not Koby. He's not he's more. Magic johnson. The Bronco criticized. Michael you almost always took the final shot first of all he didn't he let coach Steve Kerr impacts and take a lot of shots. Michael Jordan, did don't tell me Michael took the right shot, but LeBron came into the world post MJ in the middle of Kobe's career in the bronze like guy wide open on double team at night. And I always supported the let me support. Kevin Durant here. They were up by thirty doing it Kevin's way don't blame Kevin for the loss. No team in the history of the NBA is had what Kevin has Kevin Thomson Steph curry the three shooters on the planet are arguably Steph curry Klay Thompson, Kevin James harden and Tokai Reardon in there. So I disagree with this idea that you have to just generalize. Hey, my star player shooting thirty the warriors are different. They have arguably the two best shooting guard. It's the best back and history curry Klay Thompson is better than. Jerry West Gail Goodrich, which I grew up with is the best backcourt shooting in the history of the NBA. So it's a completely different paradigms and Kevin Durant. Saint Louis I can shoot you forty three percent over Patrick Beverley and get the hard to. But isn't this sport? Now about the easy three not the hard to and Durant's the best hard to shooter in the world. But Kevin's got it, right? Is I can do that. And I can hit that. But I got I got wide open world class shooters. I think there's been a way to play basketball and everybody knows now the worst shot in the league. Now, even though Durant best at it is a hard to and Durant. The best hard to shooter in the world. But the better shots, the easy three in Durant. San. I'm going to distribute to these world class shooters. If clay was on this team or Steph wasn't I would say shoop thirty. But I always defended LeBron this I'm gonna I'm gonna defend Durant on this. They're both the same guy. They're saying I'm going to make the right basketball play. And I will always we got too many guys mislead that don't do the right basketball play. They take bad shots when you can get a starlike. Lebron Durant goat. Now. I'm gonna do the right basketball. I love that. I'll defend that for the rest of my life. That's the way. I love the

Hey, the end of the clippers as I said to Doc Rivers couple of weeks ago. I love watching them because they never quit. And that says a lot to the people who were behind the scenes to who brought in these players who you may not know him. But man, I love when they take the floor because that's there's no quit in them. And that's reflective. I think of the people brought him in so credit to you and doc in you know, Steve bombers well. But it's always great to talk on, Dan. It really hasn't dock and Lawrence Frank have been oh my gosh. They've done just a fantastic job. And it's it's fun to see how people react when they're around the even though they don't get a little dog does. But Lawrence Lawrence doesn't get enough loc-. That's for sure.

Do you want me to play that back to is to make sure? Oh. You you notice I acted like. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. But in your head you're getting a little dizzy right now. Oh polling when I know I'm looking on Jerry West brought out the cake for our ten year anniversary, a belief. I'm glad to camera wasn't on me. Because I did get a little misty on that one. I because I didn't see because he was often the shadow in police surprised me. And all the guys said, you know, what let's bring somebody on to bring out the cake, and it was Jerry West. And I all of a sudden, I see I couldn't tell that was Jerry West. I just saw somebody. We said the owner of Jerry's cakes and wanted to bring the cake in personally, and I could just see that. He had this yellow sweater on. I mean, he looked like he was out of a catalog, and I I couldn't see his face. And I thought oh man this guy, you know, boy, he's really well dressed and tall. And all Michaels was there, and I just looked over. And then all of a sudden Jerry West came into the light and went home again, Jerry West is bringing the cake up there. Yeah. And and I go back to the early. Seventies. When I got a chance to watch him play against the Cincinnati royals, and his hair was always parted perfect. He'd Liz uniform was Chris he had the Adidas he had the sweat bands. He just he he was right out of a, you know, a fiction novel now that that's what the basketball player would look like chip Hilton, you know, for two. Now, just seeing how you know emotionally. You got going what he means to you? And you know, we all as a group like who would be the perfect person to deliver his head. He'd be in town. And he he didn't even give it a second thought that he wanted to be a part of that ceremony. Well, the first time that we had him on every time. I looked at him. I saw my dad, and that was really tough to get through the interview. Because my dad said do you want to be a ball player watch how he plays? And I just remember he played on the west coast. I'd stay up late and they'd lose all the time in the finals. I I'd be crushed. I didn't want to go to school the next day. But I wanted to be like Jerry West. And of course, I couldn't be, but I just admired how he looked how.

"He's a pragmatist he recognized what transpired this season. He knows that the Lakers weren't the same since LeBron James got injured went down. And even when he came back. They wasn't they weren't saying. But I can tell you I can tell you this right now knowing Kobe the way I do for the twenty plus years that I have known him for the twenty years that I have known them. Let me assure you of what Kobe is feeling in. This regard. Injuries definitely rake rate. No question about it. But of Kobe got engine was out eighteen games. And then came back in the Lakers still stunk up the joint with him on the squad. What would we be saying? See guys like Kobe and hall of famers, all they ask is that the standard and the level of accountability to superstars in the world of sports. Be the same. Everybody gets held to the same standard. And then you judge though fluctuate and be harsh with somebody while giving somebody else a pass. There's a little Koby ones. Remember that? Because you don't pay attention to what's going on here. Make no mistake about that. Let's get back to the phones. Vicky you live at Stephen Stephen how Vicky I'm good. How are you? I'm doing the right. Thank you for calling. How can I help you? I just wanted to. I was watching you on ESPN news right now. Listening to you talk about jury or talk to Jerry West I'm from West Virginia same hometown, he came from raise from common creek. I went to same house school. He went to graduated from east Bank. How school whereas primarily measure r? He's a great, man. Gary with. Town home of my favorite mountaineers. Yeah. Problems lately. But yeah, we have. But I still love I'm a true fan. Fair weather fans. Still behind the one hundred percent, and I'm not a big big fan of professional basketball. But I do love the warriors cause ain't nobody like Steph curry I loved watching throw that three balls. But I just want to say, hey, first time caller first time watching I'm looking at you right now on ESPN news. Love your said. Thank you so much Vicky. Appreciate the call. Thank you. Thank you.

"You know, people say, well, you know, this guy's gonna sign somewhere else. I guys on the side somewhere else if they wanna go some well fine. This is about competition. And that's where I think the front office makes a difference. Again. My pilots are to the thority that Steve bomber who is one of the best owners and I worked for one here in Los Angeles. And jerry. He is one of the best owners and nicest man, I have ever met. You would never know that he's successful. He is really normal. But the thing I love about him. He is so competitive and at the end of the day who do you wanna be around? You wanna be around really competitive people who are going to let his staff run this team, they run everything by but he is mazing owner. Jerry, stay right there. Because here's what we're gonna talk. We're talking to the great Jerry West right here with Steven on ESPN radio and ESPN news. I'll ask you this question Jerry West because you know, Lawrence rank was wants to coach in this league. He knows his basketball. Now, we know what Doc Rivers knows. He's a champion. Okay. Bloomer is is the billionaire who is as you said one of the nicest people you could ever want to meet what role does Jerry West play with this. I know you're a consultant, but how much cash shea do you have how much do you utilize how much do you talk with in communicate with these folks? Because in you, we're talking about one of the great executives in the history of basketball with David. I'm. Well with dog, I don't bother him as much the one thing. I never would never do with the coaches tell him what to do. I even as a when I was involved here in locally, and Memphis and also with with the warriors. I think it's wrong to fear with a coach's ability to create what he wants to create and dock, and I will tell I will tell you. We like some of the players and no question about that. But if they made it easier for me, Stephen, I talk all the time Lawrence. There's not a day. And it goes by that we either don't talk text each other. But the people in the office Michael winger, we had a brilliant man in our front office and Lawrence again. I don't think there's an executive the league that's out watching players as much as him. He is a tireless worker, and I told him one time as Lawrence said, look, we've got about six other people out there scouting force. Who are all terrific? And my role as I view is just to be an adviser. I'm not someone here. I don't like attention. I don't like the bliss the, but I do love competition and whoever were playing the Lakers or the Celtics whoever I want us to win. And I will tell you Stephen nights. I'm going home this year where I haven't been able to sleep because a great wins. We've had I just sat there and again, a tribute to Lawrence and attributed doc that he has taken east players and mold them into a team that really believes they can win. When I tell you this much knowing Lawrence Franken. Everybody knows Lauren. Frank knows how competitive he is. Okay. Anybody? That knows Doc Rivers knows how competitive he is anybody that sees the Boehm at the games knows how competitive he is. But when we talk about Jerry West who is audibly one of the ultimate competitors. Okay. Even though you're consulted look championship when you were championships when you were with the Lakers championship. Ultimately, you want to go to State Warriors? I think one of the most brilliant moves that I've seen in the modern day was when you hired the great Hugh Brown to be the coach of the Memphis grizzlies when nobody was thinking about Hebr out, and you got him off the scrappy out of the brook as well to come work with you as the head coach in Memphis who developed Gusau now, I'm looking at you with the clippers..

"But he does it he scores in and bunches. And if you get somebody make three or four baskets in a row and probably a couple of threes, those separate close games, and then mantras Herro as been tremendous. He has really improved his game. And he has really taken a gigantic step forward. Stephen. And like you. I'm flabbergasted because I watch our guys shoot around. Sometimes I'd say myself my gosh. You know, how are we going to score points? But we score points. We score points. Like it's like magic sometime. But as I say, it's been so much fun for me to watch. And you know, I would be really remiss if I didn't really talk about Lawrence Frank's Michael winger and his office Lawrence's assembled. I think he should be as active year hands down. He's done just an incredible job of making trades that have made us so much more. The important going forward. You know, everyone always talks about free agency. I think free agency. Sometimes if you got a lot of money to spend, and we have a lot of money to spend sometimes fool's gold because you don't get a player that you think is a player that's going to be able to significantly help your franchise. And you know, you read all this stuff in the newspaper. I wish people would just stop it. No one knows what is going on behind closed doors with players and their agents in particular, and it's a it's a huge financial hit for player to take. And anyway, I just think we're so well position because the sign the things we some of the things Lawrence has done their front office. There has never been a harder working for an office in this period. I've have never seen a front office workers heart. Jerry was how do you like this? I've got Lawrence Frank's as audibly the executive of the actively agree with you with that with a couple of moves that he's made. There is no question and created castrates. You're gonna have more Cavs Mason the Lakers paying attention to that. Okay. I got Doc Rivers as a top three coach at a year, we're booted holes in Milwaukee and Malone in Denver. I think they both have done outstanding jobs as well. As Doc Rivers. You can't ignore that. And I got without question. The sixth man of the year in Lou Williams. So that's how I'm looking at the clippers having said all of that Jerry West I will ask you this as we sit here today. Did you imagine that losing Chris Paul Blake Griffin de'andre Jordan that you would find yourself as an organization not talking to just you? But as an organization, did you imagine that you would find the clippers and this position right now. But tick when you couple that with the fact that the other team in LA off the Lakers, and they just got LeBron. Did you see this coming? Well, obviously, I think. You know, when you play LeBron James caliber, and Stephen I've been a huge fan of his been a great defender of him over the years when he gets somebody like that you bringing into town. You know, I was frankly excited because I like to watch him play sometimes things through injuries. They've got they've had a ton of injuries this year him included, and, but the expectation level that people have when you had a player that importance it is just tough sometimes to achieve it. But I would tell you in and far as the clippers. I believe in competition. Okay. I don't think there's any one player unless he's young. And and normally talented that if you into date they and aid the way this game is played and his plates. Ignificant different coaches have had to change their philosophies because it's three point line. If you can add a player that would maybe be a huge danger before the three point line have good. Passing team and more importantly, a terrific defensive day. Nothing nothing is impossible in this league. And I've always said sometime that I think sometimes you can play trade players off your team that everyone praises and you can become a better team. Sometimes subtraction by is some trial. Sometimes if you subtract something it'll add dishing somewhere else on your team. But I've never been afraid..
Is Jerry West the Clippers' secret weapon?
"To thirteen and six star in space to signed to max free agents next summer. Max should the Lakers be concerned about the clippers. Yes, they should. What has happened with the clippers is they acquired the greatest executive in the history of modern basketball by four in Jerry West. And I'm sick. Like you hear a lot of stuff in industry. Well, it was really coincidence that west was here with really every single time. The Lakers overtake the Celtics as by far the most important franchise and basketball with jet under Jerry West watch. He goes to Memphis as make the playoffs. Perennially? He goes back to L A they win championships. Again, he goes to the Golden State Warriors. They become the dominant franchise in basketball, and this era he goes to the clippers and that year not three years later you blink. And they're alone in first place in the Western Conference. And with Doc Rivers, not having to worry about personnel and all this nonsense. I didn't think he was a good GM. We are reminded. Oh, yeah. Doc, Rivers painful rate. Coach the they have a great executive a great coach. And now look at this roster. Stephen there are no name brands, really gone. Hari and guys like that Tobias Harris all good players kind of middle of the pack players that their position, you know, what that's supposed to be is supposed to be a middle of the pack team. But because Jerry, West eyeing the talent and seeing what they can do and can't do and get into right pieces. And it's Doc Rivers coaching them up. They're better. Now think about this Stephen you've made the point many times playing with LeBron James it's a mixed bag for a lot of players because it's always gonna be LeBron James's show. Now, we've heard from Leonard around coli Leonard it has been widely reported. You're not sure about playing the Lakers like flippers aside and not about the Lakers spotlight. And then you add to that LeBron James's team. Now, you look at the clippers. Oh, that's a healthy functional organization with great executive any great head coach and they're playing winning ball, and it can be my teen could be heading for the clippers. And he's not the only one. Yes. The Lakers need to be concerned about not cross town rivals. They play in the same. Building about they're about their code tenants. Stateful senate.
