"The men do that Because this men's basketball team is having a run of it in this exhibition. I know they're not fully staffed. They still need book and drew holiday. And middleton gotta get tatum's knee right and all that i get it but i loved what the wnba is doing. You know big w. fan just in general but the idea of candace parker leading the wnba. All-stars going up against role teammate. Chelsea gray and team usa to try to get those women revved up four tokyo. I think speaks to the camaraderie of the league. Could the men ever do something like that. I don't know. I trick the all star game so much but i wouldn't be it The all star game. The on the one thing i will say about all star games as it's better when the games matter and i think the wnba has found a format in which the game will matter. Nobody's gonna wanna get embarrassed there And and like you say the ulcers going to feel like they're they're doing a service for for the team. Usa and tears you know has been watching the men struggles. I think they're going to be motivated. But i i don't know in the nba. What i've always said. I would do with the all star game to make people care is i would get a sponsor you know. It's say it's kia or you know. Whoever is the title sponsor in the nba The And i would say okay. Here is twelve million dollars. Every player on the winning team gets five hundred k. and their pocket and five hundred k to charity of their choice. Losing team gets zero. You get nothing. Don't you think they would play defense and compete if you did that. Nothing like millionaires fighting for more millions. Spoken like a true manhattan beach resident luggage out ireland right on brand john island. That don't really get the game and that would be six million dollars to charity and the players would actually care. Yeah well. I love just the fact that w the players wanna go at each other because they want to get team. Usa ready for the olympics. Many of the women were playing on the wnba all star team who were snubbed from the olympic. Another that's another element to all this. You know a little play is so much better than than it's ever been before. I mean i don't know if you've been in a gym and watch some the way some of the handle on these girls it's ridiculous. I mean it back in our day. When we were younger we probably could have held our own for five minutes against some some pretty good women's players we would not score against them now. They're that good. I know i went to a straight ball tournament in in the bronx. This weekend called hoops in the sun. And there are some women out there and i was tempted to try to see if i could tear. Acl or not. And get out there. But i i who heads prevailed. I realized sadly in my live. You leave you with this. Our mutual friend. Dr robert clapper. Who's been the head of surgery at cedars sinai hospital in los angeles for many many years and does a show in los angeles called the weekend warrior show Once looked at me after.

New York Giants Confirm Saquon Barkley Tore ACL, Out For The Season
"There are terrible injuries all over the NFL yesterday alone. Nick. Bosa. From the niners Saquon Barkley from the giants both suffered torn ACL statistics show that through two weeks nfl record twice as many significant injuries as last year. It's actually at least six players suffered a torn acl including just recently Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin Eleven, injuries to starters in the one o'clock games alone John Do you think these injuries have something to do with the fact that there were no preseason games. Well. For example, the Rams don't play any of their starters in preseason games I think is in the spirit of your question i. think it has something to do with no camp no real camp they kind of shotgun training camp and I don't know how you could make the opposite argument that it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't tied to preseason games what I would do it to the fact that there was very little tackling. Yes in. The game started and the other thing is I know Kyle Shanahan the niners felt like the field wasn't ready like the field I think he played in the meadowlands and he's got play there again next week because he played the jets and now he's GonNa, play the giants. Players on both teams going down. So I don't necessarily think that the facilities were one hundred percent prepared either I think again, I think the spirit of your question is the fact that they fast tracked everything and started the season. Because of Covid is that having any do with the injuries I don't know how you could say it doesn't I think it has to yeah. I mean I I completely agree I mean between training camp and preseason games where guys at least get a sense for what they get a reminder of what getting hit is like. I think they're I think they would be better off. It is an extraordinary number of injuries and none worse than Christian McCaffrey who's gone for four to six weeks and his the stalwart of my fantasy team just loyal to John Ireland how about? Yeah. I cleaned your clock thinking Matt Ryan. But. How about how about Saquon out for the year? Yeah. Entirely out for the year Bosa gone for the with a tornado. And that means that the giants I. It might be a race between the giants and the jets who the worst team football is. The whole new. York City area has to just garbage football teams because the jets are a mess and now the giants have no running game. So it's going to have it's going to have after-effects. All these

"The morning show was talking about this earlier and John Ireland hanging out with this year. So which game do you think would be important to the Lakers? We were just talking about the bucks game beating the clippers or beating the Bucks Mason and I actually disagree on this. I think that they want to beat the box Just because the bucks are at the top of the mountain. And that's that's eventually where the Lakers are trying to get and the bucks are you know are a team that you know cares about the regular season Who knows who the clippers are? GonNa plan Sunday now. If you give me the clippers gonNA play everybody and everybody's healthy. It's a great matchup. The Lakers I kind of lean towards the Milwaukee but Mason and I think most Laker fans are leaning towards the clippers. Which side are you on in that? I would lean towards the clippers but I think it's close right. I do too but can you imagine if they three this week. The Lakers go three and this week. That's a huge confidence. Yeah I mean and it. 'cause these three games and and what a great week to you mentioned if you're a laker season ticket holder you kinda get a little disappointed tonight with no embiid and Simmons but in order you get Milwaukee and the clippers. Yeah Yeah it is. It's a fantastic. We give you could pull it off. real quick on the dodgers. We talking about this yesterday and I think this this the answer may be yes to this. But I'll ask you. Do you believe this. Is the best dodger team ever on paper? Wow that's a great question The World Series team two years ago with manny was really good too and they had but on paper they might be if David price even as half of what he used to be and Walker. Bueller peaks like the weight. Then you three League pitchers you have Bueller Kershaw and then prices I. It's it's kind of a reach for me to call an elite at the of his career. But you saw early into reinvented himself. Maybe priced as to if those three guys all have good seasons and everybody else lives up to you. Know what we'll we'll say their potential they really don't have a weak spot one through eight. I mean if you look at it you go around. The dime you know will smith behind the plate. Looks like he's pretty good. Muncie had a great year really great two years Gavin. Lux could win rookie of the year. Cory seager is really good. Justin Turner is really good and this might be the best outfield they've ever had with bellinger and bats and then whatever they do in left whether it be Jack Petersen. Aj pollock. They are loaded. Where's the easy out in that lineup? George I mean the pitcher that's basically so yeah so and and I think they're gonNA play with a chip on their shoulder because they feel like they got rocked in two thousand seventeen and we're waiting for this red sox thing to come out in in. Maybe they feel like they they got ripped in two thousand eighteen so yeah on paper. This could be the best advocate ever. But you saw what happened last year. They went one hundred six games and then lost to the national right. Yeah it's a crapshoot once you get to the playoffs. It's so random in baseball hockey right. You run into a hot pitching staff and it's over you hot goalie and that's it yeah Real quick though the good news about that the investigation of the Red Sox is Joel. Sherman reported reported out of I believe the New York Post that That it doesn't look like mookie. Betts will be implicated. So that's great news right and even if he was I think dodger fans would would probably say okay Unless it was like there's video of him doing equity did like covering up microphone when he's rounding Third Base But I think the dodger fans are so desperate to win a world series. They would say okay. He cheated but now he's with us so we'll get behind him. I I think no matter what that red sox investigation says I think dodger fans are going. Embrace them yeah. Free agent Turkey can leave at the end of the question. Boom you gotta coddle them no matter what happens lastly before I let you go. I brought this up to Mason when he came on the show last week as great as purgatory was between us. The Cross. Talk with you guys. I feel like you guys are just going. And it's just like a boxing session. You're just using them as a punching bag. This poor guy never met anybody who was born at the age of thirty like Alan Sleep. This guy has no set of childhood experience. Like you the the guy who really gets George. What you gotta listen to listen to the leaker pre game show. Michael and Michael will say something to him and he'll go he'll go sling. What there's A. There's a guy down on the bench. Looks just like Red Fox and sleep will will say who and Michael? Just lose it. No Fun though just has no reference to anything which which is highly the thing. I'll say about the about Allen and says he's a very good sport about you know he kinda puts up with it but we went see. We went to Sodano show to it in in some ways is we are working this sports radio business. We went the chess visas to move so we can rebirth purgatory highest rated half an hour on the station.

"You didn't mention that they did really well last night. The heat which anybody has to do in your garden is i. Don't think you honest had any transition point And that's where he kills you. I mean George you and I are lucky enough to be able to court side. A lot of these scams Janas can go They're announcer Milwaukee's announced. Told me that you can go one into the court to the other thing about this. You know a ninety foot court in five steps five so he gets out so fast that if you let him and Lebron this too in the open court if you at those guys get a full head of steam. They're going to ram they're either. GonNa score they're GONNA GET FOULED. Miami got back and didn't let you honest get into transition so I think that's another key part of your plan. Give him to have a guy like outta bio wants to take on the challenge. Then give him different works when he comes down on the floor and maybe most importantly don't let them run. Don't let them get out in transition. And if you do those three things you gotta shot. Yeah and yeah. You've got to force him to shoot. Because that's the one skill and Greg Anthony was talking about this last night on NBA TV Because they had the game to him and Spiro and it's that that's the one aspect that he can't really kill you yet I mean he hasn't mastered that whereas Lebron I mean they're getting the shots that they want and Miami yesterday forced Jaanus into the shots. He didn't WanNa take and I think the Lakers the clippers Can All do that like? It'd be clearly we know. Hawaii is capable of doing that to Janas but again I think the Lakers have the blueprint. They have the same type of guys defensively. That can do the same things to him. Which is why. I just haven't feared Milwaukee winning the championship this year. Barring them just getting ridiculously hot from three well. And that's what happened when the Lakers lead the bucks in Milwaukee when we played earlier in the season you honest made four or five. Three's I don't think he's done it since but He was just making all of his three point shots and if he does that you kind of have to live with it but I I argued yesterday on our show. George I'm I know I'm probably in the minority here but I think that that Lebron should get serious consideration for MVP over unionist because if you take away from the bucks. I think there's still a really good team and they're balanced if you take. Lebron away from the Lakers I- statistically the Lakers are second offensively with Lemond. And when the Brent town and the court they're twenty nine and and to me that's definition valuable that if you take one guy out of the equation that that the team would suffer maybe critically and I. So that's my my argument for Lebron. I don't think it's GonNa work because Janas has better stats this year than he did. A year ago. I don't have an MVP book you. I do. Not but I've been. I've been banging that drum for two weeks here on the show and I'm a wholeheartedly with you at you. Mentioned the second two twenty nine th I. I'll even go even further into the numbers. Lebron's off numbers are better than Janas because of what? You just illustrated right. Because when he goes off the floor it goes off a cliff that that isn't the case the honest their deep enough where they don't have as big a drop off when he's off the floor. There's still a positive when John is on the floor right which actually a compliment to Milwaukee and their staff. George we've come full circle in this conversation because that was the Miami. Did all the things you you explained to shut off. Janas and theoretically. That's what's going to happen in the POSTSEASON PEOPLE ARE GONNA game plan against Janas when that happens. Somebody else on that team has got to step up and last night I think. Chris Middleton was four for sixteen And you know he's the guy that's really going to have to make a difference. And that's where the bucks are unproven. I think that's why like for example if you go to Las Vegas. Both the Lakers and the clippers are bigger favorites to win the title than Milwaukee is. Even though Milwaukee has the best record by far and inconceivably would have home court in the finals if they make it that far but some you said to me two weeks ago do they make that far. I mean do they get past Boston in a really smart coach and Brad Stevens or Miami in with a hall of fame coach like I don't know if they do? I think last night is put the crack in the armor for sure. Yeah I don't think it's a give you got another segment and you cigarette. So more with Ireland will get into tonight's game against the sixers. I want to kind of go around some of the different sports with Ireland as well stick around. We'll be back in three minutes back here on the Sodano show here on seven ten. Espn John Ireland kind enough to join us for another segment. Mason Ireland three o'clock and of course. The Voice of your Los Angeles Lakers as the Lakers. Take on the sixers tonight. You can catch it right here on seven ten ESPN. So let's talk about this particular matchup now I know. Ad is questionable again. Look I'm not trying to tell Vogel what to do. But at this point because no embiid. No Simmons and I know. They gave the clippers all they can handle the other day. We just found out new Josh. Richardson to Oh absolutely sitting. Ad and his game. If I if I had the if I had my druthers they might I never know? Lebron has kind of installed this this work ethic where everybody shows up which I I really admired. This is a different conversation. We can have it another time but if you if you believe in Load Management Yeah. This would be a good opportunity. But there's a handful of old school guys and Lebron tends to be one of them that say if people were paying money to come see you play And you can play. You're not hurt or you're not doing any damage to your team that you should play. So let's see I think if a D is sore or is hurting the they they would be likely to restroom. I don't know if they will or not. This is a weird weeks of the Lakers George in that this is the first week we've had this year and I know the shine off. Tonight's game because of the injuries to Philly but this is the first week the Lakers have had all year. Where all three teams they're gonNA play our teams that beat them earlier in the year. They lost that Philly. They lost that Milwaukee who we play Friday and then. We put the clippers on Sunday. So and the Clippers beat the Lakers twice. So this is a really fun week. If you'RE A LAKER FAN. Because it's going to give you a really good report card on what you need to work on before the playoffs And you always thinking. What do you think on Friday when they play Milwaukee we talked last segment about game? Planning for Jaanus. If you're Frank Vogel do you give that a for lack of a better word address rehearsal and try and stop or maybe hold stuff back and don't show it to him in case you meet them in the finals? What do you think I think you do address rehearsal because I think the book is out on them right like I don't think it's any like I mean we're talking about it openly on the radio and we're a bunch of slobs right like they know that that's the deal too so I think you just try it now. Maybe you kinda mix things up like the heat yesterday zone at them. You know what I'm saying. Yeah Yeah and I think that you tried it. You tinker with stuff and just see how it works. I mean granted. You want to win the game. I get that but you do throw different things at them just to see how they react to. I will say this Frank. Vogel one of his favorite things to do and I don't know how well you know him but he is a great guy. Yeah one of his favorite things to do in like basically one of the reasons he's in this job is he loves to scheme on defense. That's where he feels like he earns and where he what he knows. Best and that defensively. He did it in. Indiana really have horses in Orlando. But he's got him now and the one thing that people don't realize about the Lakers until they play him and you saw it on Sunday when you're in New Orleans is the Lakers lancs and physicality just mess with people. They're just big. It's like having like track down at the rim between Javale. Mcgee Anthony Davis and you forget that Lebron is six eight now. Think about Mark Morris who six eight They're just long and they're and they're big and I think that that's one reason. Why if they elected to sit tonight probably be fine because they have other guys who didn't get rebounds and play inside but that's the one thing that if the Lakers win the title and I picked him to win it I'm part of. That is what I heart and part of it is with my head but I picked the Lakers to win because I think they create huge mismatches with their length. And I don't know if you can duplicate that maybe two or three other teams in the whole League can yeah. I would agree with that. I and by the way are you. Are you in on a Pelicans Laker series? I think that's what the League needs would love it. But I'll tell you this. Did you see what Memphis last night? One thirty nine on the road I mean. Those are the types of games. The coaches fired. Lloyd Pierce the coach of the Hawks after the game looked like somebody had you know had robbed him he was just inconsolable. And and because if you lose by thirty nine at home that gets the attention of the owner but Memphis is not going to go down quietly. They I. They've got some injuries. five thirty eight. Five thirty New Orleans is the team. That's eventually going to be there right but I spent some time. I've got some friends at work for the Grizzlies and they're embracing this. Nobody thinks we can do it saying and especially John Rant. So there's two games coming up between the Grizzlies and the PELICANS that Laker fans should watch. They play home and home two or three days apart but but but but they play one game against the in Memphis in the next one right away in New Orleans. Those Games could swing the eight spot. People should watch the league. Has To want Pelicans though because Zion at look funny last week of all the different sporting events the top two most social took top to the most social interaction Were both Lakers. Pelicans Games over twelve and a half million interactions on social media. Just on those two games alone and I got to work in both. I know you weren't going Sunday. They are really fun to watch. There was a sequence whereas I on dunked and the Lakers took the ball out of the basket and within five seconds. Lebron shot a forty footer. And made it and you know each sequence alone that fifteen seconds sequence just open to the possibilities of what that series could be just massive starpower..

"It was cool to see the fans everybody showed up and we had a blast. So thank you guys for hanging out. Thanks to thereto for hosting us there and would have a good time. So look there's a lot of talk before we get to the free agency part of this conversation with Durant because there's Vegas odds out about who the champ could be next year. And it was an interesting inclusion or addition to those championship odds recently, but with Steph curry, so the discussion I had with John Ireland and Mason in those guys before the show was they were talking about staff, and he's having a tough spot in this series. Look for sure he's shooting thirty something percent. That's very unstaffed like, but if you look at it there's like an overarching narrative out there for years now about Steph even before you played with him that that always just not the same guy in the playoffs. Always average at twenty five in the playoffs and he's averaging twenty five in the regular season. But the difference is pretty much. Everybody's efficiency numbers field goal percentage at three point percentage. Those numbers go down in the playoffs because teams game plan against you. And just everything the intensity is just different in the plant everybody Katie now. But I think we're. Steph. You know, if Steph it's two or three more Shah shots and each game. We're not even talking about this, right? His his numbers or similar? You know, Katie is playing out of his mind right now, you know, proving that he's the best player on the planet currently Draymond playing. Well, this is a luxury that Steph does have, you know, unfortunately, he's not playing are typical Steph curry back ball used to same. But he's not he's not just a a liability out there. I'll say the one thing I get Houston credit for continuing to put stuff in the pick and rolls and he isolating him. And I know that I definitely know that we're in on because it's not some he does all season like they're putting him in the mix every single play. And that wears on you, if you're an athlete or basketball player, you know, later in the game when the you know, you have legs for those shots you typically make norm you might not have them. And then, you know, at the end of the game is a perfect example where he's guarding whole entire game has breakway misses the dump you know, what I mean? So it's just a situation like that. But if you're banking on Steph not playing well the rest of the playoffs for your team to win. It's not a good bet. Yeah. He's he's playing okay. But he's not having those wile moments. Like when the when the warriors up ten and all of a sudden, you Steph hits one from, you know, outside the arena, and all of a sudden, they go up thirteen in arenas going crazy. Those are the moments we see on a regular sees. We don't get those in the postseason games are lot crosser. But now you watch Kevin Durant. Take those, you know jumpers hit knows threes. And to a point you like, I do I don't know how many times I said it the other night. I'm watching saying like that dude too bad. This dude is the best player on the planet right now saying, okay? Well are Steph you'll turn and it's almost to a point where is he holding? Kevin Durant back a little bit because I feel like sometimes K D when he doesn't touch the ball a couple possessions. Madam I come home is due got the hot hand. I know we love Steph. And I know Steph is is the golden child, but it's to a point where like LeBron had to will d Wade had to make way look Gulab Rondo do. And it's to a point where I feel I we want Steph to still be up there. But this is katie's team. You know, what I mean like, I know Steph team in terms of being the captain. But right now, this is Steph squat. I mean, this is Katie Lee, katie's plane out of his mind. You know what I mean? But to me, it only takes one one or two mates for Steph to get back to you know, like him, and clay, you know, they can be down down down and then hit ten or fifteen twelve threes..
"john ireland" Discussed on In The Zone with Chris Broussard
"And our Koby those Mitch Cup check Kurt Rambis. Those are the only ones west is working with the clipper. So those are the only ones Laker nation that are really live. So she went to magic magic as I could do a better job run this team. Kobe was yeah. Won't you hire my agent. So to me they've gone about this the same way they've gone about everything else backwards. They should've went out and tried to get because I said the Lakers most storied history and NBA let's go out and make it about the best. You're in pro sports at the highest level. Let's try to get the best person for that job in based on your information. They haven't even tried to go down that road. And to me. That's a tremendous mistake. Nick, you mentioned whose whose genius talking to Mason in Ireland is a radio show in LA, Mason television broadcaster, John Ireland, the television voice of the Lakers connected afternoon show, and they said something last show in LA, Mason television broadcaster, John Ireland, the television voice of the Lakers connected afternoon show, and they said something last week that should terrify Laker fans and. That is genie buses closest confidante. And the person who she is leaning on the most in this part of the Lakers history is Linda Rambis Rambus his wife, and that is not in. It's not an indictment on Linda. It is simply, however, what are the odds that the person most quipped is someone you what's the odds of the best person? Take over the company is the son of the guy who built the company. What are the odds the person most quipped help you with this? Search is the wife who you're friends with of a former Lakers coach former Lakers player really that's the plan here. Lakers fans have to be holding out. Some hope that what has happened is just not being reported that Colin has it right that they have reached out to Masai or prestige that they have someone in place, but their team is still in the playoffs. Because if that's not the case, then all Lakers have going for him is LeBron then they just have to hope that LeBron bring someone in that LeBron can help Pelinka build Auster because. If you don't get a real pro with this. Then what are you doing? And the idea that none of these people that fit all the qualifications. You're talking about would take twelve to fifteen million dollars a year or more take a blank check and send it to them new, right? Exac your point you made as far as the money that they're making off the court overall evaluation of the business. This should be no brain this is easy to do. You said Laker fans are hoping that's not necessarily like I would say Lakers are hoping that's not necessarily the case. I wonder where you think LeBron fits into all this after really coming here in large part because Magic Johnson made a promise to him that this is the direction that team's going. I mean, I don't know what LeBron thinks of all this. But he's got to be looking at the top of that organization and wondering can I really trust in what's happening out there and one of the bigger problems. I think that if it is rob Lincoln. I mean, I can't imagine they're trying to interview other Kennedy. We'll try to hire coach a GM should be the guy high. During the coach. But if it is rob Pelinka, the next thing they would have to do is flush out his staff Lawrence. Frank added like fifty people he added my former colleague league chickens to that front office who is in that Laker front office. Where are the the experienced executives that need to be around? Rob Pelinka what he's making these types of decisions I'm coming out of the segment. More stressed about the Lakers than going into the second. Thank you for listening to the hoops on FOX podcast.

"Mace. There was some severe weather becky's yesterday. So a lot of TV stations were putting up weather warnings in their area while tiger was winning the masters, right? Some stations took it a step further in Atlanta, and Cleveland, they actually cut into programming when tiger was on the back nine and they got killed on Social Weather. They like the meteorologist popped up and said, hi, I'm John Ireland with a weather update. And while Tigers like nobody the people didn't get a chance to see it in Washington DC. They showed the masters live but did several cut ins during the replay in the afternoon. Here's what Michael wilpon who is watching in DC tweeted about the CBS station there quote channel nine in DC, the CBS affiliate you people couldn't wait until tiger putted out before you took him off the screen for your self indulgent, endless weather, interruption, really a pox on your producers. Probably some of my dear friends that among other things and social media calls and everybody's screaming at the TV station caused the meteorologist there a guy named topper Shutt. Yup. To put out a Twitter video. Here's what topper Shutt had to say. Okay. Lee relatives topper shot here. Look we had to go on the air for the one. What we do is our policy is one reason for granted SEC license to protect life property. I will say this had that masters been live and not a replay. We might have addressed it with a crawl on the lower portion of your screen since it was not live. And it was in our viewing area we went on and our policy is to stay on until the tornado warning as expired or cancer it was canceled about two minutes before it expired. So that's why we did what we did. I'm sorry. If you I know some folks work, and they came home to watch replay. And we've had a lot of calls and a lot on social about this. Look, I'm a huge. Golf in probably one of the golf fans. So we don't take it lightly. We also don't take protecting life and property lightly. Either. Okay. Let's see you run a TV station. Yep.

"And in your idea that a guy would rather have his own team in a brand makes no sense K. We'll see what. Kevin Durant says about that next. Mason in Ireland ESPN LA. All right today is day five of our twelve days of quiz Mus campaign. And this is the John Ireland question you've got a chance to win an autograph. Lonzo ball basket ball. Go to our ESPN, Los Angeles, Instagram or Twitter page answer. Today's twelve days of quiz, Mus about John Ireland. Check back tomorrow for another question and good luck. All right. So we're talking about this story that has come out about whether or not people are voiding. Playing with LeBron James, and whether we'll be tough to get a second superstar to come here and play for the Lakers. So this this kind of started, I guess with K D, which is interesting. Katie says it depends on what kind of player you are. If you're Kyle Korver than it makes sense because cow Korver in Atlanta was the bulk of the offense, and he's not a number one option at all not even close. So as talents the way, it's. Be nice to Kyle. So his talents benefit more from a guy who can pass penetrate and get them open. If you're a younger player like Kawhi trying to pair them with LeBron doesn't make sense coli enjoys having the ball in his hands controlling the offense dictating the tempo with this post ups. It's how he plays the game. A lot of young players are developing that skill. They don't need another guy..

"Mason Ireland show, I'm John Ireland back in the studio Mason, apparently a Greg. I'm guessing the reason he took today off because he he says he started too much energy Dodger Stadium this weekend. Well, the guy went to every World Series game. Plus a Rams game. He was in a stadium for a lot of time. Yeah. I mean it was tiring. I was in three different time zones. Thank the Lord, buddy. Ben Lyons was available to pinch hit. How you doing man doing? Well, thanks for having me. I was expecting John Ireland midseason form Lakers at Minnesota. Fly back land watched two episodes of game of thrones. And then join us on the golf course this morning. Wait a minute. When you told me you guys were playing I thought about it. But we landed we landed at one fifteen I hit the pillow at about three. I thought you know, if I just stay up. Yes. It wurley time. If I got caught in were one hundred percent right on there. And I get my taming my mom airport. Tomorrow morning early. I have to be somewhat functional, but so much to talk about your dodger fan, I'm a dodger fan Mason. And Greg have been wallowing in this in this dodger posted more day hangover, you know, it's real, okay? So it'd be hungover anybody's hung over for two days. That's here's where here's where I want to start as you may know, Greg Bergman hosts like this crazy. And by the way, see if you can find him some headphones that actually work first day of the because this segment of me talking to you won't work until he has to guy. I got no you need to hear him. I I know radio is. Four. I've said watched Greg on this livestream. And in the last couple of nights is just been a lot of. Well, the issue becomes now that since the dodgers have lost the World Series two years in a row that the dodgers fans have become spoiled. All right. Let me give you some facts in the last eleven years since Clayton Kershaw was a rookie. Okay. The dodgers have made the playoffs. Eight times in eleven years. They've won six division titles. All right. They've won the pennant twice and have been to the World Series two years in row yet. Greg who hosts like a Facebook periscope. You know, he basically is where fans go to complain after the dodgers lose or to gloat after they win. You put up a poll explained to the audience what the pull was in what the? Current results are all right. So I said I'm curious how how split dodger fans are about. Dave Roberts on one side, doc in three years has gone to three S's two World Series on the other side. People think that doc feel for the game is off in that. He is a puppet, right? So I said, no, I have no opinion. That's just curious. What do you guys think about Dave Roberts? Do you want him back or not signed long-term or let duck walk? What do you think? The results were. All right. Then what are the results has? I would guess that most dodger fans coming off the heels of another World Series loss would say that they would want to move on. Right. That's what you'd think fifty five percents that they want doc long-term fifty and so forty five percent percents out. Yep. Say goodbye, Ben. What if you're in the dodgers, what would you do about Dave Roberts? I'm a big believer in consistency. I never really understood the move on from Mattingly. I thought they were continuing to knock on the door. If you're in the playoffs every year he had won three division title. Share the suffer can like we got Cory. You're coming back this year. Right. You're right. Your team lose a guy Cory Seager for a season. And it's a panic situation in for them. They're able to right the ship and have a kind of an unremarkable ninety two win season or something. I would have I would stay with Dave Roberts. I don't get the constant moving of a manager. I don't think that's the secret sauce. Greg. What would you do? Why would you answer your own question? I'm so split because for the most part..

"Information. I'm John Ireland, ESPN LA today. It's Michael Thompson and Ireland. Masonry back tomorrow and we're talking about this urban Meyer story, Michael. And if you read the report that twenty three page report is on the internet, there is no rational person who could read this and say that he deserved to be suspended for three games. It's just the stuff in there is so agree GIS that you would think, all right. You've got to fire them. There's no reason this is okay. But let's say for the sake of discussion that he Seventy-three and eighty brings in eighty seven million dollars for the football game. You wanted to find a way to keep Michael. There was an obvious way and they missed it. How they do it. But what we have done president are low, but you have done suspended for a year the whole year. You think about throw away a year of possibly getting to a championship while shut the final four where you make all that extra money. So all that extra here, but wait a minute is high. If you suspend him for one year, remember when the saints got caught on tape, trying to go for people's head bounty stuff, both Greg Williams and Sean Payton or kicked out of football for a year. They came right back and picked up where they left off a year. Would it given them cover, say, wow, that's extraordinarily. They suspended her Meyer engine Smith director without pay for a whole year. Now they run the risk urban could leave. It was obvious yesterday that urban didn't want to read that statement and didn't agree with his punishment. Despite that, you know this absolute. You know, BS answer to this question, do you feel you should have been suspended for what happened or. I trust and support our president. I trust and support our presidents, like one of those kids stall GM when your kid where you pull the string and say it that way. But Mike, don't you think if they would have came out yesterday, they would have said, all right, look, we, we messed this up. We kept a domestic abuser on staff, or there were multiple signs and multiple instant in instances where we should have there were red flags all over the place. We should have seen them. We didn't, and we screwed it up. But we have an extraordinary football coach. He's not the one that committed the crime. He claimed he was an accessory wasn't sure exactly. And that's what that report shows. He knows. He made a mistake here. Was an accessory of you knew about it. You covered it up still cycle thing about Penn State. Anybody even knew about Jerry Sandusky got fired in three of them went to jail. I mean this, this isn't as agree just as that, but it's it's it's in the in the area. Horrible. Yeah, there are many people that say, I stole it from Jim Harbaugh, but I've heard many other people simply one sentence statement on domestic abuse is that if you ever hit a woman, you're done with me unless it's an self-defensive to protect your ever hit a woman you're done with me even if it's in self defense. If she has a weapon, I'll I'll hear your story, but you better, you have a right to protect yourself. Arguing for woman knows no reason to hit a woman and and in especially in a case like this and you'll there. There are multiple offenses by this guys accent. If you come out and say, we are suspending urban Meyer for one whole season. That's an eighty seven million dollar penalty, Doha Satan net. They're still gonna make half, but still he's the reason why they're making all that money is. He's the reason as you point out that they're in the final four every year, that one chance to get their correct without because they still have the talent. Remember when Bill Walsh left George Siefert led the forty Niners back to the Super Bowl when Barry Switzer won the super. Bowl after Jimmy Johnson left, the whole team didn't go under..

"I mean, look, I mean, former opponents become Lakers and if they win, you love them. If they don't then, so be it. That's the way it goes. I think the bronze in the same category, maybe where they're Jerry, West fans who were like, you know. Don't want them to get this guy Karim. He one those in Milwaukee. I think so. I don't think eight, seven, seven, seven, ten years PIN DeMarco far. Ben Lyons here debating what's going on with all these Kobe fans who seem to be getting smaller and smaller in numbers, but louder and louder in their cultural footprints. Someone's going carbon footprint and how John Ireland is a human carbon footprints. Man drives an SUV. He's on planes. He's using plastic straws. John Ireland, a walking environmental disaster. Kobe, Bryant fans are having their their presence felt so much so that the owner of the LA Lakers has to come out and say, hey, Scutt it out. Well, I've never heard of another Laker that had a mural defaced. I mean, this is different multiple times. This is a little bit different. I mean, maybe you should say something when it's when it's gone that stupid. I just Paul, George, would you feel the same way because they rolled out the red carpet for him, or would you accept him as a Laker already under so fickle? Right. These are the fans. Who had Laker games in February Channing. We won't Paul and getting his mom drinks when she courtside on, and then he decides to stay with Russell Westbrook and everybody's well, you know, we didn't even want you in the first point. That's how goes right revisionist histories thing. But yeah, I think I forget the skit. Was it the rich Eames skit or they're in the Chapelle show? And he says, cocaine is a helluva drug? Yeah, right. The Stahl Joe is a helluva drone. No doubt people hold onto what provided them joy in the past as they try to experience their future. It'll never. I mean, maybe I'll give him the chance, but LeBron James at his best here say he does want a couple of championships. It will never eclipse would Kobe, and the guys did for my life at the time. It was just exciting. It was too much. I remember one of my best friends said when Kobe had a shot in the playoffs, that was the best feeling he ever had in his life. I mean, he describes it that way Tristan going through taking that away from your friend by adding. LeBron James LeBron oxygen though put it doesn't turn anything that Kobe achieved here or built or his legacy. The bronze going to stand there on Kobe statue night and pay tribute to. I just wanna get in the mindset of these Kobe fans, and we know they are. There are people who are like, I'm not a Laker fan. I'm a Kobe family. Those people exist. Like I don't understand how you can then not be excited about the Brian James coming. And I only wanna talk to people that defaced murals those fan. O'Shea Jackson, I don't know if you saw on set right now. We can't get a get him on the line him. I mean, oh, was it not him? We don't know. We don't know. I mean, the, I don't know. Oh, shea Jackson, wow, he's he's. But he, you know, he's the one who said that in order for LeBron to truly be embraced as an all time. Great. Laker. Yes, to win. Not one, but two titles. During that time, the Celtics cannot win a title and ESPN past Kareem all times go, he's set the bar very high for him to be a welcomes Laker legend. So you got to beat the warriors twice as what he's saying. At least twice. You've got to beat them twice without the Celtics beating and those other two times..
