Anthony Davis Has Room to Grow

"GonNa Focus on the Lakers, which as an editor is near and dear to my heart because sharks picked the biggest red meat team on on on the table here. But they've been really impressive with us are there to one and Anthony Davis looks like probably the best player in the bubble thus far chunks. Why don't you leaders us through some of the things that have been happening with Lakers why think for the record this is called the impossibly good-looking persons corner just clarify. For. Their how dare sir? Okay so we're looking at the Lakers thing to me that's jumped out in the first three games is how they're playing when Anthony Davis playing without Lebron on. So that was been their biggest problem. All season is those non Lebron ad minutes because he idea was. Okay. If you have a D- then Lebron can rest he can get. His breaking it as time off, and they'll still be fine. But before the restart when eighty was out of the Ron, he was minus three and five, hundred, six, hundred minutes as those are important minutes Lakers have to win in the restart I mean obviously is a very small sample size but who cares where we're doing podcasts in the restart their plus night. Eighties playing without Lebron. That's just a massive flip on their whole situation and to me watching those minutes was set out to me I think number one. Not Having region Rondo. I think that really kind of low key killed their team because when rondos playing he has to have the ball right like Rondo can't play off the ball Swiss hole in the ball he's not really a threat to score someone's really guarding him and then on defense that giving you much either so like Alex the numbers when ad and Rondo without Lebron it was minus five and without Rondo they're playing Caruso and waiters with a d the floor is spread and the thing. Anthony. Davis. You don't need a traditional point guard Anthony, Davis give eighty the ball in the mid postals kill people right? He gets the ball then it kicks shooter instead of the Rondo. So it's like ADP without Rondo back great and the other thing too is eighty at the five. So they're going eighty Kuzma than like Greener Casey Caruso waiters whatever. Eighty s numbers at the five the year are insane. They're absolutely ridiculous. So cab. Looking at that with no Devellano Dwight Eighty has a usage of twenty eight shooting of Sixty six point six. Now base that means in English as eighties in the ball, like he's hardener Jaanus and he's been the most efficient player in the league. So if looking at those two numbers, there's only been one player in NBA history that had to be that efficient at that. High usage not staff like five years ago. So basically, when eighties at the five, he does a established about shooting threes he's basically scoring at will every single time I think long story short eighty more room to grow I. Think we're seeing that right now like leading a d. plan space given him the ball he's got levels still the go to get into them right now. Yeah I. So the biggest thing off of that, which was great I just wonder if their margin for error is too thin right now obviously the Lakers have been incredible. So let's get that caveat out of the way I think probably favorite if not among the favorites for the title. People like to remind us on the group Chat specifically Chris Because I don't think sharks was. One I remember that yeah. Where we pretty much we troll the Lakers after their first loss of the season and. Venture like the succeed but clearly, they've they've far exceeded those expectations. Great. Please don't ask me. But I do wonder as bad as Rondo has been at times. As much as Bradley is the fifth most important guy on that starting lineup at times I do wonder if the margin for error is a little bit more thin and you are relying on the cruise of the world on the Casey Visa, the world more than you would like to my wrong rob now I mean I'm I'm pretty compelled by this whole situation that sharks laid out like the idea of shifting some of those pieces around and unlocking ad in a different way like makes logical sense to me given his skill set this is. The Guy, who can you know Kevin O'Connor talked in in the restart this week about how? Bam. Out of Bio Converts Defenses Ad in the mid post has a similar effect where if you clear out, you give him space and a straight line drive past almost any big in the league like that's such a powerful thing that there should be a way to orient pieces around that. Make Sense I. Think I get skeptical is in that margin for error and it's in, you know if you look at kind of the core of these lineups. AD and CAL Kuzma, and Alice Caruso or kind of the three man anchor of it and in around that, there's a revolving door of guards. You got some Danny Green minutes you get some dion waiters minutes he gets JR Smith gets in Casey ep you got whoever they cobbled together in that minute in the rotation at those guys scare the hell out of me a little bit and I think you know when you flashback to eighty as a Pelican and where he was some of where they fell apart without drew. Holiday on the floor without kind of more traditional point guards on the floor which just not having competent entry passers not having guys who could get a d. the ball in positions to score, which is it seems like such an easy thing. But the thing I don't trust dion waiters to do but it is a thing. Maybe I do trust Danny Green to do it. You know like some of these more professional veteran level guys like that distinction I think is an important one and probably the difference between bubble seating. Games bubble playoff games, right where you're getting Jr's and the demons at least lower in the pecking order if not out of the rotation on a regular basis entirely, and then you're looking at these minutes where it's you know, Danny Green Casey P. and those guys and cannot work I. Think I. Think there's a chance that it does but I do get a little bit suspect just in the sense that once playoff defenses are really keying in on what this lineup look like and how it works what does that? Mean deep because you know Jaanus has had that scrutiny in terms of a big who handles the ball who's creating for space lineups like we know what that looks like in defense is know what that looks like defensive kind of just been dealing with these Lakers lineups without Lebron floor all year haven't had a lot of trouble with them, but they haven't hammered them either in terms of the the mechanics of how they work. If this starts working, then you invite that level of

The NBA's Western Conference is really bunched up

"Hey, Johnny Mack. Love to hear you. You gotta. Yeah. Man. I think the problem is Paul home green. I mean, she came in right? And he he had the job before Hextall. So the first three years Hextall had the job we spend cleaning up your home green, scorched earth policy. I mean, there was nothing in the cupboard. There was no. You know, there was no cap space. This is the first year we that any ability to acquire anybody time, he was just shuffling backs into Titanic. So we look at the guy, and you wonder well, the teaming acquired the best players on that team or the best players on this team that we have today. It's the behind the scenes work that homegrown doesn't have the patience for which is why he lost his job is Hextall's, really excelled. Right. Let me let me let me ask you a question. John. How rate the job the Dave hack stalls done as a coach. The problem is he was never put in a position succeed. A college coach, right. Who specialty is developing young players with the college system, that's quick and easy already young players that he's developed that will go speier has developed. Well, thank so. Yes. I don't know if I would say that. Absolutely. A more complete prior today that he was when he first started his reads are better he's playing defensive end. I mean, he's never going to be strong defensive defense. The guys skinny as I am. But you know, he's an undersized player. He's not going to be clear in that kind of guy. But he's. His defense. Reads have improved. You know, he had that injury. You know? So you can see he had two older is game a little bit with his outlet passes isn't stuff, you know? He doesn't carry as much as he did his rookie year, you know. And you know, but I think he'd he's definitely grown. I thought. Well, hacksaw has made big mistakes is one that quickies system is in an NHL system. He has no he preaches almost against, you know, the hawks axiom is go to the net and good things happen and his systems all about point shots. You know, you know. So the hacksaw situation, you know, is just bad. Like, it just isn't that like part of? That's what I'm getting at here. I think that the powers that be home grin and Scott came to the decision that this isn't work. That would Dave accident Brayson table, development wise, scheme wise in the like isn't working, and they basically told Hextall we signed off on his guy. You wanted them. We said you could hire them where now four plus years into this. And it's not got any better. It hasn't developed into any results. We had more than enough patients in this something needs to change here. And we think that the first step has to be the coach, and it Hextall probably said, no, I'm telling you, this is the guy you just gotta have patients, you gotta wait, and it's gonna take time and it's pipelines coming and they said, no, it's not. And he said, well, I'm not firing him. And they said, well, why are you then they wouldn't cop that they're not about to copter that because if they do well, then you got a Dead Man Walking has the coach they have a Dead Man Walking is it is. Is it would be even more blatant? They would have to fire him and just elevate someone from the staff until they could get a new general manager could come in and wired the new coach they would have to fire him as well. If they were going to be honest and say, yes, a big reason why we let go was because we thought to coach it'd be changed. And he said, no, well, then the guy can't possibly go back behind the bench when the powers that be come out and say that so they they had to say what they said. Now, this is pure speculation on my part, let let me go well on record with this. I don't have a flyer source who works in the front office of the flyers knows the inner workings of the flyers. And and I'm telling you, I got this off the record. No, this is just purely me speculating from afar, I think they wanted Hextall the fire the guy that he hired and it acts all said, no, I I can't do that in good conscience. And they said well in very good conscience. We're gonna fire you then. I believe that's the case. And if that is the case, then I'm okay with X dolls firing because you have to be willing to do what your bosses tell you to do. That's just the America. That's the way it works here. Right. Hextall dozen run the flyers. He's a general manager run the flyers either known of flyers. You don't run the flyers? And if they made some really serious suggestions. And he just refused to do. So. Well, then yeah, that's how you get wired because I believe that there is more talented in the system now. And I believe that the flyers are getting better. And I believe they're at least on paper trending in the right direction. Why would you fire that guy? Well, because they want results now, and he's saying patients patients patients patients and their patients had run dry rich from north valleys up by ninety four WIP rich. Hey, thanks back. Hallways listening to you. Thank. But I'm lis-. I think with the seventy Sixers is the problem that they got right now is power forward. Like last year they took off because they got additions of the powerful surge and Syria, I can't pronounce his name. They're well. So that's why they took off. So I think the biggest trade that the Sixers should do is. They still trae folk because I don't want him on a team anymore. But they gotta wait until December fifteenth to Trey Wilson Chandler because he's not big enough at the powerful position. You don't reveal. That's was hurting us when they miss shots 'cause he don't he's not a good rebounder. So they should get. Kyle Korver JR Smith and Kevin love of the city of brotherly love. They should take chances. Kevin love. Kevin love will be a big accuracy. If they get Kevin love max, they go on to the championship. And if they get Reza. Oh, rich. You're you're you and I have discussed straits before. And it's fun when we do 'cause I follow your line of logic purely from a basketball fit standpoint. They do have this thing called the salary cap in the NBA young it, right? But that matches. No. No, it doesn't make a trauma million wasn't channel is not making tw- twelve twelve million a year. He he got like two twelve million. Look it up and a I ten million. So that'd be twenty three million. Love beat it. Then core in the Sixers got money on the books the setbacks, and you just gotta suck it up and take the love. But Yes, What's the chance to make a treadmill? You can't train them to December. Fifteen. I liked getting Kevin love. I'm match big daddy. Okay. No, no. I'm Jody McDonald. Damn glad to meet you by the way, big daddy coming up in forty seven minutes. So feel free to call back. Then rich, I get the trade machine out, Mike, he said Wilson Chandler. Marquel faults? For JR. Kyle Korver and Kevin love. Are you telling me that's gonna work cap? Wise loves number JR Smith is making thirteen million dollars. There's no chance that that works doesn't ESPN average trade machine or somewhere you can plug in. And it tells you just purely from a salary cap standpoint, whether it works or not. Yeah. Morning now, they don't even let you trade Kevin love because he is restriction from when you get a new contract extension. He can't be trade until February like late January. Okay. So and the same thing Wilson Chandler because he signed a free agent contract during the off season. So you gotta wait till a specific period of time before you can trade him. But. Do me a favor look up. Kevin love JR Smith and Kyle Korver. Jared Smith and Kyle Korver for Chandler full. That would work that's twenty two million for twenty one million for Kevin Love's twenty four million in there. That's not work. Right. That's what I said that three players. There's no way. The Sixers have that kind of camp room to take all three of those players back. Well. Well. Smith and Kevin love or the two highest paid players of the five players in the trades. Right. Doesn't work. No. It doesn't work. That's what I tried to tell JR. But he told me that it worked. No, it doesn't work JR. But nitrile if the Cavs are gonna just tear it down. I could see what I do at night that they would have interest in Wilson, Chandler you. Put Wilson Chandler trade. Just try and make the money work, and the money still doesn't work. No, I take Kevin love. I didn't love would fit in well with Butler Embiid Simmons. He's willing to shoot post up threes. He pounds the board on the defensive glass. I think Kevin love would be a great acquisition for the sectors yet. It's not happening salary, cap wise. Eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four

NBA -- How Draymond Green, Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors move forward

NBA -- How Draymond Green, Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors move forward

"The next game out. They actually suspended the warriors suspended Draymond green. And then he returns and that team just got completely destroyed up against the Houston Rockets, even when Draymond green comes back from the suspension. But the whole reason why there was a suspension is because many people believe that Draymond green. Did cross a line when Kevin Durant was saying after regulation. Hey, I need the ball. The ball should be to me. And he was upset with the situation while Draymond green. We all know, he's someone that's very prideful. And he's also someone that is never afraid to speak. What is on his mind? He elected to call a teammate and Kevin Durant. The b word from some of the reports that are out there and Chris Haines also detailed the entire situation that Draymond green. Even took a shot at Kevin Durant for his impending free agency. And there's a lot of conversation that this could be the last year for Draymond green should be for Kevin Durant in a goal. Alden State Warriors uniform because he's the player option for next year in the belief is he's going to opt out and he's going to testify free agency waters. So what a Draymond green elect to do supposedly from Christine's? Draymond green said to Kevin Durant after that game. We don't need you. We won without you. Go ahead and leave. So how about that from Draymond green? Well, Golden State they realized that the new stadium, by the way. On its way. And they want that stadium phone, it'd be full even have you had Steph curry, Draymond, and clay, and let's just say, Kevin Durant leaves. But we all know how much of a star. Kevin Durant is management. If I'm looking at if you had to pick between one would you rather keep Kevin Durant around long-term? Or would you rather have to give a big contract extension to Draymond green and twenty twenty when he's a free agent and ten times out of ten actually twenty times out of ten I'm taking Kevin Durant over Draymond green so management and the Golden State Warriors thought dad Draymond green did cross a line. They suspend him for one game. And now, you gotta hear that. Oh, this is going to make the Golden State Warriors stronger. This is an ugly situation. This is more drama in the NBA, which you have to love when you already assumed that the war is going gonna win another title barring significant injuries, which they still are going to win the title, minus this little view. That they're having this kerfuffle that they're having we should say inside the organization, but this is a season that has already had so much drama. Not even just the warriors. You have abroad out in LA. You have the whole fight between Chris Paul and region. Rondo yet the Jimmy Butler incident. Yeah. The Cavs firing a coach a few games into the season JR Smith wanting a trade, and it's something new every day. So people can tell us, I'm all MBA's, boring. I used to be someone for years and is boring. Same thing every time, but the regular season always gives you some fun storylines last. If you look at the story lines, there was at least ten compelling storylines this year, we may get ten by by the end of the month. Let me get ten by the end of the week, maybe sitting down and get ready to your Turkey lasagna. Whatever you have on thanksgiving, and we continue to have more JAMA from the NBA. So this is the latest. And if I'm the warriors I'd rather keep Kevin Durant compared to Draymond green. But Draymond green isn't a free agent until two thousand twenty Kevin Durant suffrage in this upcoming year. And it would not surprise me when Kevin Durant wins his third ring and probably another finals MVP, but the Golden State Warriors if he elects to say, okay, why they come to Golden State came to Golden State because I couldn't defeat them. And I. Blew a lead with Oklahoma City thunder and I wanted to win. Well, you got your wins. He got your ring. Gillette? Three by the end of this year. So if you're not fully happy which after the game when Draymond did return. He was clearly not happy about the situation. Still he did at the press conference with up to that in just a second. But if you're not happy you've already one, and you know, the perception about you as you need to go to Golden State to win go somewhere else. The question is where you get what you can join the Knicks savior with the New York next. They love your hair. The statue came to New York and play for the next one. I go to the nets like who is the team that you want to go to or do you want to stay in Golden State and hope that management maybe doesn't give Draymond and extension. Or you hope that they assure you that you're going to be the man they're gonna do everything it takes to keep do. Because after they won the championship this past year. They they made it clear abundantly clear. We will give Draymond green. What we'll give out. Kevin durant? Whatever he wants whatever he wants. And get the max contract. We know that. But. Can you restore this relationship? That's something. Because I would usually say winning does cure all but in this case the winning is not that hard to achieve because the winning. It's gonna come regardless this year. And this is not tough to win with this team this year. Even if let's say you had a season ending injury to Draymond green or Klay Thompson. Sultan that should get to the finals and win it whenever you have Steph curry and Kevin Durant on the floor each and every night. So I don't think big picture. Oh, how can they survive and when the season 'cause they're still going to win? But is this relationship long term capable of being fix or will? Kevin durant? Be. So I would I would be annoyed if I'm k-, Dave. That's what a teammate said about mine about myself because you don't comment another man's contract situation and Draymond Green Bay. Go ahead leave. We don't need you. And then management and ownership is probably like during mon- it costs this once in the finals when you got suspended that help the Cavs comeback. Now, you're trying to push one of the best players in the sport out of town. This is sometimes you lose your cool there. This is Draymond green losing his cool at its finest. However, Kevin Durant. You be the judge. Here's the audience. Does this sound like someone that is happy and Golden State right now.

"jr smith" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"Good Lord might be JR Smith now JR Smith has been. A sort of lovable character over the last few years with the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James until last year's finals he had been the guy that we think of as the cavalier would want to celebrate with shirtless. JR Smith running around having a good time. Well, it is not all sunshine for JR Smith after LeBron James departure who yesterday came out was very pointed in his desires talking about wanting to be traded now from the Cleveland Cavaliers are you hoping for a trade? Have you expressed that today? How did they know? First and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app and our own Adrian Watson Ascii reports that the NBA will consider whether Cavs guard JR Smith public acknowledgment Thursday that he wants to be traded constitutes a final offense under the terms of collective bargaining agreement. Man, JR Smith. God God love him. But this is the most JR Smith outcome of this event possible. I call it. A lot of the bad portions of his Cavaliers tenure Knicks JR Smith finding his way back into the light the New York Knicks JR Smith that so many people and want him to Maan Shumpert were dealt on their way out to the Cavs people said good riddance, and then had to watch them. Both. Get a championship ring, which I'm sure was great for everyone in New York to watch and process and taking their but for JR Smith. It was a lot of talk about his rehabilitation of an image is going from DM slider to father and a husband and a guy who who seemed to have it a little bit more together than the wild child. We had seen in the past. But now it's becoming much different situation and one that our own STAN Van Gundy talked about yesterday was sage Steele on sportscenter. Well, I think.

Golden State Warriors top all teams with an over/under of 62.5 for 2018-19 season

"Can you lavar ball, is going to be headache for Oh really, you're not? Really dealing with to know are you my Lavar lavar will put himself in the forefront and act like. He is going to suit up and be playing for the Lakers now that little bronze in town and LA Lakers are going to be the center. Of the NBA next season will the Brian James on their roster I at some point I could see. The Lakers, making a run for an NBA finals before, the Brian you know contract runs out or he decides to retire. But Golden, State is still they're still sitting at the very, top I mean when you add, boogie cousins on that roster. Too, that's a. Pretty good basketball team a very good. Basketball team yeah no. Question let me clear this up for you you got west gate. Has the over under for, win, total for, the Lakers. At forty eight point five Houston Rockets fifty four point five wins, the gold standard is. The Golden, State Warriors at sixty two point. Five, wins underneath them. Boston. Celtics fifty seven and a half wins look it's really interesting clearly there's a move. For, the? Long term with these LA Lakers but, for the immediate What the roster that we're talking about with these Lakers everybody's tried to do a school state does Golden State is. A team, that spreadshee- out scores of points do a lot of it with the three ball and that's what Houston tried to emulate this year Houston said hey we're going. To build a team and they'd been they've made no secret of it we're gonna do this not under the guise out in the open we're going. To beat Golden State at what state does and they brought in guys to do something like that at. Least they, tried to Chris Paul if healthy eight maybe, Houston in that game seven at home maybe just maybe they beat. The Lakers, Chris Paul was heard the Houston Rockets lost that, game failure to hit the three, point shot Golden State cruises. On, to another. NBA finals victory but here's what it. Comes down to what. Makes it interesting for me with what the Lakers are doing here. The Lakers said, hey you, guys, all want, to try. To do what this team does we're going to try and go, the opposite route where. To try, to find the antidote by grinding. It, out by being. More. Physical by playing a half court game I mean if you. Look at this roster You got LeBron James you. Got Brandon Ingram Lonzo ball's a bigger guard who's going, to be in place of transition game but not three. Point shooter so far have I mentioned, to Colwell pulse, a bigger guard you got, devel- McGhee who's, an incredibly physical rim-protector raise on Rondo. Of. Physical guard doing it with defense coups must Stevenson Josh heart these guys are physical guys. That are grinders that are built win in the, half court I think it's really interesting to see if this can build success this may be the blueprint of, how to be, Golden, State that trying to be Golden State Mike be called state by. Going to differ route yes and his something that may not a lot of people really talked about the guys they brought in they did it on short term contracts. Now they're, going to be locked in yeah You know what if it doesn't work out okay it was. Nice to see, you later. We're going to go ahead and try to put some you know some younger better pieces. Around the LeBron James you think about it they're definitely guys you. Look the guys who are going to be in rotation older all big physical guys guys if, they're going to sit there and not let one. Klay, Thompson comes around off a screen on the baseline you're going to bump into you're going to get. Physical with Kevin Durant we know Steph curry a little late in the booty. So With him a little bit orbit ball go. Adam I in? That aspect so yeah you're. Not. Gonna out suit the Golden State Warriors. Because they get too many perimeter shooters you're gonna have, to get, physical and try to frustrate them and what, the game up a. Little bit do. That old school that old school style of basketball and put in, the half court against the, warriors yeah I mean look LeBron makes everybody around him better Brandon Ingram is going to become infinitely better Lonzo, ball's gonna figure this thing, out he's a talent tickets dad out of. It he's going to be a big player in this. League Kyle Kuzma has already established himself is to steal of the draft a season ago and this is this is a nucleus. Of guys. That are there to. Build a, rat look raison Rondo land Stevenson's Al McGee they are x. factors you don't know personality. Wise what's it going to be but what they are is they're veterans in this league that are savvy. Guys that know how to play the game and you never tout out when you got arguably the greatest? Player. Of all, time and LeBron James on your roster. What they're capable of doing so I told you west. Gate has set this thing. At four eight o'clock, that's, the over under. For win totals for the Los Angeles Lakers this year If, America put your business out there Mike but if you're, gambling man would you take the over for the Lakers to win more than forty eight games. Or did you take the under I will take the over not by much I would take the over on forty just because the Bron Ditz. The best out of players come on he got the best out of JR Smith until Jasper. Decided you tried to dribble out. The clock in game one of the, NBA finals, you look at the makeup? The roster to the Brian has had to play with when he got back to Cleveland with the exception of Kevin. Love and carry urban play with a bunch of stars guys are gonna be all stars but he got the best, of of Kristen Thomson tau. Former George hill mediocre average players in the NBA so he will, get the best land Stevenson I can't wait this land Stevenson LeBron James play together because Yes LeBron loves Lance is competitiveness Lance. May not be the best player in the basketball court but we steps on the court and his mind frame he's better than everybody in the NBA. And you need some of that you need crazy out there you need some. Part of your team, if, you're going to expect to be able to compete against the Golden State Warriors and? Houston Rockets in the Western Conference? Yeah no question to me what's most intriguing. Here's you they're always draw the parallel with Michael Jordan and LeBron James and their careers and as you. Look at it LeBron James very different from Michael Jordan LeBron James had an easy coast to get to the. NBA finals and we got. The NBA finals he had, he had tougher opponents whereas Michael Jordan had a hell of a time getting out of his conference but by the time we got the finals those matchups favourite MJ and that's why you see the perfect, record in an NBA finals but now you've got LeBron, who's going to be an aid conference that is going to be the struggle for him to. Get to the NBA finals I don't think they're built for This year but the question. Does become when talking about. LeBron is his time with the Lakers is how much time do you want to waste this guy embarking on his fifteenth season he's only getting older no matter. How, great he was last year you don't? Want to. Waste any time was LeBron so it'll be a cincy what this team does. This year and most importantly is, this the blueprint of how to knock, up really quick in about ten seconds who do you think the biggest competition is for Golden.

"Let's get to it. The Lakers keep adding to their roster this off season. Multiple reports. The Lakers have agreed to a one year deal with Michael Beasley was a teammate of LeBron's in Miami Beasley was the number two overall pick in two thousand eight, but has had a history of drug issues during his career. Last year, he averaged about thirteen points per game with the Knicks and the Lakers already at it. Rajon Rondo land Stevenson and javale McGee this off season. We're joined by EVA's one NBA analyst. Chris. I'm gonna get this one starting with skip because I wanna know what you think. What is going on here just for the record, I've covered the NBA even longer than my main Chris Broussard. I started covering the NBA when I was at the LA times back in nineteen seventy seven, and I covered these Los Angeles Lakers. So I've been around for a little while and I've seen thing or to this team now sets up as the most difficult to coach team. I can ever remember. Maybe I'm forgetting one somewhere along the trail, but I don't think so because let me just count the ways. Michael Beasley love is game, loved him before his draft. He's been on seven teams and eleven years for reason. Rajon Rondo has been on six teams in the last five years for a reason land. Stevenson has been on seventeen in the last six years for a reason. Nj, all McGee has been on sixteen eleven years for various reasons. They're all in different ways, extremely difficult to coach from night tonight. They can be moody, they can be. Unpredictable. They can be a little knuckle headed in their own various ways. This is now the NBA's version of the expendable 's and I can't believe that LeBron James signed off on all four of them because I'm pretty sure magic had to take each one of these still LeBron say, you good, you good, you good. He's had history with all four in various ways playing for or against them or with an or against them. And it's like he now has the equivalent of four JR Smith on his team. Not that Rondos knuckle headed. He can just be difficult high basketball, I q Doc. Rivers finally said, I just can't coach him because he thinks he's the coach of my team thinks he knows more than I do. He was the driving force behind New Orleans rise last year into the plows past Portland in the first round. It was highly impressive. And then the pelicans said, no, no, no, we we're not going to go for with Rondo because he's difficult to coach. So all the sudden porn Luke Walton at age thirty eight is sitting. In the volatile mix that he's surrounded with with a lot of bench players who are going to want minutes and make waves of if they don't get their minutes and he's got a lavar ball, sort of hanging over his head from above and you never know which night lavar is just going to go off on Luke Walton and say, the team has quit on him or he should be fired or whatever. So if this team does get off to a little bit of a rocky, start, my Mandla Shannon Sharpe says, yes, it could get off to a rocky start. Everybody thinks that this is going to become a rough mix. You know where the fingers are going to get points early on. The thirty eight year old head coach down at the end of the bench, right? And again, LeBron is going to have to help him coach his team. If in fact, he signed off on these four guys, but I'm gonna remind you. There's been a long running theme in the league that I, I heard around the San Antonio Spurs back in Stephen Jackson days, and I love Stephen Jackson, but he was considered early on in his career despite all of his game and all of his intangibles in character that he did have basketball character. He was considered a knucklehead. He could do knucklehead things in..

"Not sure you could unless it's a guy with a not a great contract and maybe a teams looking to start over so the cavs are up against it they're way over the cap so obviously you guys you got guys like kyle korver and jr smith and and and love and tristan thompson and jordan clarkson were all locked in it at fairly sizable amounts of money varying degrees philadelphia has got the good young team and lebron ben simmons have a real nice relationship but ben simmons is a guy who do handles the ball and that's what the bron does because their relationship you'd give that a possibility and it's a good young team that made a nice run in the playoffs and you add lebron they figure the chemistry out they probably go to the finals but is that going to work lebron and ben simmons played together and then of course houston has been mentioned often as a possibility as well but they would have to deal with some serious capital shoes and how you'd figure that out chris paul wants to max and lebron wouldn't go there and less chris paul stayed you know james harden chris paul and lebron james who all play with the ball in their hands that would be hard to figure out that would be an interesting dynamic i you know that's you talking about three great players but you you know there's only one ball and what's the rest of the team looked like if you have to clear all that cap space if is that even possible so certainly the lebron james free agency when he ops out of his contract because he has one he does have an option year left when he opts out is going to be the biggest story line in the nba kevin durant can opt out and by all accounts he said flat out he staying not that he couldn't change his mind because he hasn't put pen to paper he says he's staying and there are some other interesting players that will be free agents and they'll be trades off season as there always are but the lebron james story this off season 'cause that's make or break it's make or break for communities l lebron james playing cleveland is worth millions and millions of dollars to the to the businesses in downtown cleveland by the arena is this is that will lose a lot of money if lebron james leaves not that he owes.

"And that's fine you can blame him if you want the easier question would have been lebron did jr smith no the score do you think jr smith knew the score yes or no but that's not how he asked it and then he had to ask it for times and what i'm telling you is that the somehow listen to me this is hard to do right here javale mcgee i don't know what the hell he was doing last night he is seven feet tall and unbelievably athletic for him to be an afterthought after just being totally alone under the basket and getting stuffed by the rim when he's he was in a dunk contest he was his nickname is the developer for that for that just get for i just want to laugh that the idea listen to me at the height of professional basketball when things were being decided yesterday and the referees were confused because we've got to give the superstar the superstar treatment but what happens when it's lebron is dr and kevin durant superstar we have to choose let's go to replay at the height of that four of jr smith's teammates on the court at the end of a tie game we're pointing him to go the other way that's something that happened and we can talk about whether there's a coach in league would call time out because he knew player was an airhead i don't know i asked you is there coaching league that would have had the wherewithal to predict the jr smith was going to be jr smith and not call time out time out the brand tried to call a timeout i know he tried to but if the coach lebron is smarter than everyone playing basketball s and that was.

"Unbelievable moment in sports history i know we're being bit hyperbolic but tell me how it gets better because that's a perfect person i if i go to pick anybody in sports i i don't think i could have made a scenario in which i which would have been more perfect than that i don't think there's a guy there was if you would've in a history of the nba scenario i i might have crafted that fantasy scenario honestly a guy who loves the shoot who has never met a shot that he doesn't like not shooting and not knowing that i think bikes right it's the perfect guy i guy thought of was nick young maybe i saw them last night on the court walk by each other and they kind of looked at each other like are you me there was a spiderman mean there was a moment in time in the final minute were jr smith and swaggie pete we're both on the court and everyone's talking about kevin durant versus lebron that's the matchup people nick young versus jr smith it was you knew in that moment it was gonna come down to who blinks first if either is capable of blinking and jr smith point oh man what a perfect day herbert perfect guy perfect time and it was a great point that's it that's your angle today that that he did that for george hill teammate yet good team and i was doing that thing where i was rooting for lebron because lebron was the only guy with the guts on the court to be great when the situation was calling for it even though steph curry credit words do he didn't go into a turtle shell in this fourth quarter kevin durant though if jr smith makes that shot this might be kevin durant bashing day you would have been all over kevin durant you guys oh we made those sufri throws probably should never gotten because i know it happened earlier this season and the pacers thunder gain that nobody was paying attention to but who's ever seen a call change in that fashion nobody ever.

"Everybody networks exhausted if you're just joining us and you don't know what happened last night at the height of professional basketball somebody who was on the court forgot the score at the height of professional basketball the guy who forgot the score lied about it after the game at the height of professional basketball in a game where lebron james became the first player ever to score fifty and lose a finals game when lebron james went fifty one eight and eight all of the questions after the game we're about did jr smith know the score brown was so bad for them that he walked out by the way if you're going to rock the the man purse to to a press conference brian you going to storm out probably just leave the man purse on this age don't get up and then pick up your purse and hold on mike you've only got a portion of the yes yes listen to me when i tell you this first of all lebron is the only person in sports who can get stugatz his wife to a post game press conference the only one in sports where she will sit there and she will watch him just because this show has been obsessed with lebron for seven years it's the only person sports my girlfriend does not care about sports we were howling howling like stand up comedy club howling because my girlfriend hold on listen to this through god's so lebron doesn't want to throw jr smith under the tour bus right and mark schwartz is asking all of these questions that seem fair to just get lebron to throw jr smith under the tour bus what were your thinking what were you thinking did finally at the end up for four or five questions he just said did you know the score right he was pounding him hounding him and o'brien was trying to avoid it trying to avoid it's the best anyone lebron allnight all right but listen to this so while because she's got no context for this she's like man lebron's kinda like mariah carey and in that moment i could see why you'd see that but she hadn't even seen what was coming next because that's when he really became mariah carey.
