Jerry West allegedly talks recruiting Kawhi Leonard to Clippers
"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 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 The jerry west left on johnny wilks phone hit that hordic. Excuse me this. Is jerry calling 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 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 Hope things are well and will again. I really really appreciate everything. you've done. we will I'll keep your prized. What goes on. But i do wanna get together with you privately and and love to take you to dinner and even sam if he's arou- so we can so i can lease they married to you guys for being so generous and helpful. 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 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.
Shannon Sharpe: Paul George's $190M extension makes sense for PG, but not for Clippers
"The clippers have gone all in on paul george. The clippers have agreed to a four year. Max extension that is worth one hundred and ninety million dollars. That loss amid alongside kawhi leonard. Who still has another two years on his current deal with the clippers so shannon how surprise real five is extensive. Give it makes sense for paul george because you get long term financial security and i guess for the clippers considering what they gave up they basically mortgage their future. Kuwa- was a free agent. You'd have to give up anything. Why came there voluntarily. But in order to get co co wired sidekick you had to trade garnering alexander in four or five number one draft pick so basically your future until twenty twenty six. You got no future when it comes to the draft. Yeah so. I guess this what you had to do skip. And if worse comes to worse you can trade him and try to recruit. Some of that back is very difficult to trade someone if about to be a free agent and he doesn't make a long-term he's not willing to make a long term commitment to you so that so i get it on both their parts. Paul george ankawa buzzkill. I'm i'm confused. This max money mags. Money should go to the top guys. Getting getting scale when i look at paul george paul george in his last five elimination games. He's averaging twenty point thirty seven percent field goal shooting. He's one four record in game seven against denver at ten point four. Sixteen now. I know what paul george or his first couple of years going head to head with lebron in miami with d way to botch. I remember that. But i also remember what happened. Those last two years in indiana also remember what happened when he was in okay. O'casey withdraw forty five and he hit five. I remember that russell. Forty five versus donovan's forty four and paul george later me. Yep so he did. And i would you give somebody that kind of money you banking on what. They're going to be moving forward. What has convinced you that. Paul george the player. Because that's what you get the guy that money. What are you gonna be in the playoffs. I just like. I say it makes sense to paul george. Tell anybody you'd be foolish not to take that kind of money. That loan guarantee
Report: Los Angeles Clippers Set To Hire Ty Lue As Head Coach
"The clippers are reportedly hiring. Tai Lue to be their new head coach. He's had a good fit I. think it's a good fit. He was linked to just about every job in the NBA. He inherited Lebron. In Cleveland, now he gets Kawhi. Leonard not too
Doc Rivers was set to take break, says he 'couldn't turn down' opportunity to coach Philadelphia 76ers
"A week after Doc rivers in the clippers parted ways the sixers introduced rivers as their new head coach yesterday docks that he wasn't willing to coach just anyone but the talent and Philly made it a tough opportunity to turn down. That was gonNA coach anybody I can tell you that I was ready to take a break and. It just depends on the team that was available, and if I thought that team in my opinion was ready to win. That excited me and when you look at these players as young players and their potential. The fact that they've had. So much success in some ways at the age is that they are already. And where I believe they can go for me is is a job you just couldn't turn down. and. That's why I'm here. Certainly a loaded roster Zach Thomas still here with us with Steven you're up first at the end of the day, which is the tougher Doda to coach. Do you think it's PG thirteen and? Or would you go in beat and Simmons for dot? To to me, it's a Koala MPG. It's a tough. It's a tough situation because of where they are in their careers. Your I if you are a wild linnet, you're a two-time champion, the two time NBA Finals MVP portly. You're a bit indifferent as a personality. You're very businesslike approach. You go out doing what you need to do as it pertains to doing your jobs your job but in terms of galvanizing the troops around you, that's not Hawaii. Limit is you search around you talk around NBA circles that's what you consistently here in the case of. Paul George Obviously Paul Georgia's one of the more talented you know two way players in the NBA. He's a star, but unfortunately in his postseason career particularly, this postseason that was not the case and if your doc rivers and you walked into that situation, you got guys the veterans they're established stars they've got set in their ways. They believe there's a certain way to do things and what have you, and as a result, it ended up being an incredible challenge particularly when you consider what doc rivers had to absorb once Leonard Arrive Kawhi Leonard Arrive. At once Paul George Wounded Forces the clippers to trade to form in order to acquire Paul George because that's the person that he wanted to play. He wanted to play with he was GonNa practice what he felt necessary use GonNa take games off in terms of game you know load management when he wanted to he was gonNA play when he wanted to during the regular season of course, always available during the players but all of these things assist to what makes life difficult for coach particularly when you have ownership making these kind of investments that's problematic in the case of New Philadelphia Yes embiid, and Ben Simmons are young. And you gotTa get a Ben Simmons to shoot the boy only attempted seven three point the entire season last year Joel embiid attempted one, hundred, seventy two. So one guy needs to get the pulse more and stop having this big backside on a on the perimeter and the other guy needs to develop a perimeter shot. So he could be much more of a formative formidable threat, but they both incredibly young they both got a lot of promise and a lot of future. Ahead of them and they able, you know they're trainable to some degree as opposed to be definitively set in their ways because they don't have any definitive set ways that has really really worked for them and I think that's the difference. That's why I'd say it's it's tougher to coach. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George at this stage particularly for Doc rivers and what he had to deal with last year with the clippers then it would be for him to coach Embiid. EMBIID. And Ben Simmons.

Clippers are struggling one-on-one against Mavericks
"Four more games in the NBA on Wednesday and for me the story was a tale of two conferences in the Eastern Conference. We have two teams in Toronto and Boston, who take a stranglehold on their series of both going up to o scale and in those look like they may be short series out east of story of the night. Marijuana start. The show scale is in the Western Conference on because Utah beat Denver early in the day, and then the late game at night Dallas, beat the La Clippers, and now scowl both of those series are tied at one one Ryan. How me out here the clippers touted as the best defensive team in the fourth quarter and Dallas we know they've had their struggles on the offensive end in the fourth quarter. Can you explain to me why the clippers went zone defense in that fourth in and what is their deal right now they just gonNA play small the rest of the way and If they are what you think about that small line A-. If because watched started the game for the clippers. Their typical starting center only played eighteen minutes. He didn't really have an impact as you mentioned, they did go small lot scowl they played some zone and whatever they're doing defensively isn't working and I think I really miss read this series scowl I thought the a wing talent and depth especially on the defensive end of the court between Kawhi Leonard and Paul George would be enough to slow down Luca DANNI SCALP. maybe nobody can look announced the way he's played Scalia another huge game for the Dallas Mavericks in their one, twenty, seven, fourteen when look ahead twenty eight points, eight rebounds and seven assists and the clippers defense had no answer for Luca and the rest of the Mavericks No, they had no answer for Lucan they had no answer for let's let's keep it real here. They had no answer for Trey Burke Seth Curry Dhillon right I think Tim Hardaway. Jr out there. So they had no answer at all in the fourth quarter, which is a little disturbing upon the clipper fan because you should be hanging in there hanging with the clipper a hanging with the Mavericks. Next to you know you get to that fourth quarter you're supposed to put the clamps on these guys. So if I have quite Leonard in Paul George My team are those are are the clippers worried that he they can't stop Luca is that's what's Going on here, then Luke must be the best player in the NBA right now because those guys are supposed to be the best wing defenders, we've said it all year on this show that those guys are are built to stop Lebron James. Well if I say they're built to stop the brine, but they're not built to stop. Luca a question are they built a stop Lebron or his Luca surpassed the Bronx in the best player in the Western Conference right now? All certainly playing like it. He said NBA playoff record scale through two games in the first two games of Lucas playoff career after game two scales, seventy points combined, and that is the most in NBA history at forty two points in a game one loss for the Mavericks and then Twenty eight points on Wednesday night in a game to win

He doesn't do interviews. He barely speaks so much show Linzie that like he went viral, there's a memo of him like two years ago simply because people don't really know much about his whole like vibe personally and so whenever he does sort of express himself like in an emotional way, people are shocked.

"Playoffs. That's right and they had to win this game to make the playoffs. Cowboys came into the season with super bowl aspirations but heading into week seventeen. They've asked him downgrade to layoff desperation. New Orleans even get to the postseason doesn't take care of Washington. Annual Eagles lose is to the giants after last week loss cowboys Pro Bowler demarcus Lawrence said quote. Talent without direction is nothing at all star. What was your reaction in quick march that he was telling me like it is? I mean that's all I know. He walked it back a little the next day but he meant what he said. They are greatly talented but they lack direction and look March. Lay with our colleague. Here Fox has been doing recently. been talking about doing a great job with this unique a healthy fear of your head coach. The Patriots have a healthy fear of bill. Belichick this spurs have a healthy fear of Gregg Popovich. You need that to the permeate your culture and in Dallas. That can't be the case. Because Jerry Jones has neutered Jason Garrett because players know certainly to superstar players players. I can go around Jason and go straight to Jerry. If I really need to talk about something if I really have a problem with Jason I can go to Jerry and talk to him about it. That takes away the authority of the head coach. And to be honest Jason Khanna said the same thing when he when he we've kind of tried to throw Kellyn more into the bus. He said himself that. Well when at four thousand eight play when Amari cooper a randall. COBB aren't out there. Well Kelly Moore more has the final authority ultimately. That's neutering yourself that's showing. You're not as the head coach providing direction. Okay by making that comment. You imply that you thought you should have got one one or both of those guys out there. But why didn't you do it. Why didn't you give direction? Finally I'll say this nick Dez Bryant Nano. He's not the greatest source or whatever but he comes out on twitter a he is said that Jason Garrett can't relate to black players. He's you know he's like tweet. Saying Jason Gear wasted his prime now. Who is desk talking to? He's he's not he's going off his own experience but you know he is talking to people in that locker. He's got friends he's got boys that are still on that team and he is probably saying in tweeting way. He's hearing from them even if he has an axe to grind or from a place of an agenda. Eaten informed agenda. If you will this this might be a fair criticism. In fact I think it is a fair criticism of Jason Garrett demarcus Lawrence is the single worst messenger possible for it and Marcus. Lawrence Lawrence has gotten a total pass. The last half of the years. The cowboys fallen apart. Cowboys were five and three once upon a time in those seven games since since then the highest paid player in the history. That cowboys has not one SEC. But half I can't do a half with my hands but you won over to the he's been a non factor. We talk about Zeke's contract which is about the contract Dak hasn't gotten yet we talk about the Jason Garrett's lack of a contract extension tamales. These guys demarcus Lawrence who should be noted and by the way I understand why he did it. But after being franchise tagged waited Davidge shoulder surgery until until he had his new contract which I supported the time and I understand why he did it. But when you do that and you know you're potentially going to have missed at the beginning of the season or start off as missed first game. I think it was then the ideas. You're going to ramp it up at the end during that Eagles game their biggest game of the year so great job by our colleague. Joe Buck and Joe Troy Taunt demarcus Lawrence about how he hasn't made a play and he actually got a quarterback kit. And it's like Oh there's demarcus Lawrence and talent without direction that might be the case for the offense for the schematics you. You're a pass rusher man. Your job is the most straightforward board of any job in full attack the quarterback as we told a bill.

"Concerning real quick is a moment ago. I I the because I want people to kill Russert. I said Janas took seven threes. When you said he was great? You the embiid with who you're saying there. I didn't want okay. I don't want people to versus me. I was unbelievable Christmas. And send it to your question question General Wolfe. How concerning is this injury? Well it's massively concerning if they allow it and Lebron allows it to get worse and deteriorate and this is where the I mean. The two groin injuries on Christmas Day One year apart is obviously as you mentioned an odd coincidence unfortunate one. This is nowhere near the issue. The one last year was last. Year was the first significant injury of his career. Sure this is a little nagging thing that NBA guys Lebron included always have throughout the course of a season over the course of a couple of seasons. But it must be addressed and this is where you need some of those adults in the room. Frank Vogel and his very veteran coaching staff to pull Lebron aside and say man. I know you've box yourself in a bit with the load management comments and you are going going to be opening yourself up to criticism if we sit you but you have new set it. I play if I'm healthy right now. He's clearly not one hundred percent healthy. Do not worry about any of the noise and Lebron's been a great player as far as ignoring the noise certainly over the latter half of his career after driving it did bother him in the first half of his career. The only way this laker season goes sideways is if at the end of it. Lebron or Anthony Davis are. We're not there in full force and this is where while I don't think you're seventeen. Eight turns thirty five four days. That stuff matters that much when it comes to the greatest athlete ever where it does matter to everyone is this. How quickly you recover from these nagging tweaks sprains and polls so I if the Lakers lose go from four losses and rose six losses in a row? You deal with it if it means you get the healthy Lebron that you had the first twenty five games of the year because when this was twenty four and three and Lebron was the top three MVP candidate no one was doubting how good they could be. It's since he suffered the rib injury and now the groin join injury that the jackals out waiting for the moment. They've been waiting on all year. It's not a shock to the Lakers. Losing streak coincides with. Lebron getting. dinged up do you think because again the reports have been that he might sit out one half of a back the upcoming back to back. Do you like that or would you say sit him. I yes I would I would say you can have the you have the next two games off. Because he has the rib integral I would tell them. You can sit both games in the back toback. Look I loved that Lebron on an ad are respecting the regular season. I loved it. They're playing especially a D.. Because ought plan through all these little nagging injuries shows the impact. Lebron James Names on it because I'm convinced if was in New Orleans he would have been sitting out plenty of these days with these little injuries that he's always set out so I I respect that I love it. You WanNa played seventy eight eighty two whatever it is but be smart. WH somebody in that Lakers organization as you said Rob Pelinka Frank Vogel Lionel Hollins Jason Kidd. Heck Maverick Carter a rich Paul. Sit Down with Lebron and say look. This season is about you winning the championship. And I don't even think he should catch flack if he sits. I'll say the next two or three games from the people that's all you were talking about low management that's not lower management. That is you are injured. And you WANNA get fully hell. But you know. He will whether he's should or not he will care about it. Of course people think is not an injury. But here's here's the thing he look the last three games lebrons not been good. His numbers have been great. which is a testament to how good he is but still? He has not been himself against Indiana against Milwaukee or just the clippers that Lebron James is not going to get the Lakers if the bronze plan like that they won't beat the clippers. They won't win the championship or a healthy. We saw last year he came back. What now in hindsight appears to be early and he wasn't the same they were losing to Memphis Atlanta Atlanta? Lebron needs to get healthy. He should need somebody to tell him but if he does then he's got a lane and you saw again even the most ardent Lebron James Doubter. If you've watched them throughout the year he's been a different player since midway through the Indiana game just flat. Yep Yep and yesterday took twelve threes miss the most threes ever missing gaming career was reliably because he didn't have the burst to get to the basket. Ask It wasn't it wasn't the RIB injury. Was the groin injury. And so the the e Lebron's the only athlete I've ever seen that we that everyone immediately discounts no matter what the past performance is not from five years ago but from three weeks ago when it was like my God he's the League. MVP and now to see you know the shooting thirty nine percent from the field in the last three games. There's a reason it's because he's dinged up and I agree with you percent. You and there is a difference between load managing a need condition tour. You miss a quarter of the Games and suffering an injury and missing zingy game or two after that. No one has argued. I haven't seen anyone and I might have been the hardest person anybody on the load management stuff. That guy should have to play through through injuries. Nobody is arguing that it's how much maintenance you should do to prevent injuries during the season that creates the plot is decked Prescott because he's gone out there and he's a good leader for playing through his injuries to sixteen game season they're finished led by the way if this were to be clear if no but if they were if this were the playoffs. I don't think I would be saying he sits riots the playoffs.

"If they didn't have that threat out there, and that's all the Lakers were used as that means, the Lakers spent time this summer spinning their wheels, and not signing players in free agency because they were waiting for Kawhi Leonard to make his. His decision so if the Lakers were indeed used as leverage which the the piece by AMIC mentions that the Lakers started to feel that way and Jeanie Buss started to have that suspicion that they were being used as leverage. If the Lakers for like that's what was really going on and that I was kind of in some ways doing both things at the same time that he was, he was both helping the clippers out and pushing. Pushing the clippers to make a trade in order to get Paul George while making sure that the Lakers could sign the free agents that they wanted so. It's kind of a double whammy. Right because he's using that. Lakers leverage in order to both. Push the clippers in order to make the moves to make them better keeping a big opponent in the Lakers for making themselves better. If the Lakers feel like that's what was really going on. On you can understand why they would be a little bit cranky. Regarding Kawai Leonard again a lot of fascinating stuff lot of dynamics going on to this whole situation and I. Know I know look. This was five six months ago was done is done quiet clipper and all of that, but the NBA is definitely looking into things that happened this summer and speaking of players. The Lakers could not sign this summer because they are waiting for. Some of them off. The before free agency even started so the NBA. GonNa Start cracking down on this kind of stuff because they don't want this happening. Look Kemba Walker was already going to the Celtics before free agency even began now has a player who is under contract with the Charlotte Hornets at the time talking to the Boston Celtics while he's still Charlotte Hornets. How is that not a violation of the rules? Well, it certainly is in the Celtics worth the only team. There were a lot of teams violated the CBA rules this summer. So that's something. The NBA is going to be cracking down on, and they're going to be investigating very closely. Any teams at tried to violate their salary cap circumvention rule so again. Clippers definitely have been looked at because of this again so far nothing. That all it takes is one thing coming out, and suddenly this blows up and becomes a much much bigger issue that the NBA would reopen and start digging a little deeper into whether or not. The clippers gave in and gave coup is something more than just the salary than just the contract and the opportunity to play alongside Paul George then again. There is that question of did COA Leonard go out..

It was a media vacuum. Yes is it not yeah. I mean everybody listening. This probably knows but there are three. There were basically three teams in play as dictated sort of by quite Leonard Preferences. He was either going to stay with the Toronto Raptors where he played for your played for your and won the title <hes> or go to one of the two Los Angeles teams where he's from Los Angeles. It was either going to be the Lakers of the clippers. The Lakers have Lebron James and recently acquired another top five player Anthony Davis and getting Co.. I would make him a super team. He had previously been linked into the clippers but their inability to get another superstar made it seem like they are you know nominally out of the running <hes> but there was no nobody was inside enough to actually get a report.

Just because they're going to have to talk about the Baxter home story that is the reason that no free agents would want to go to Los Angeles. If you're looking at what's happening behind the scenes have you guys seen what the Caesar's odds are now for Kawhi Leonard, and it's free agency destinations. No, tell me the overwhelming favourite, according to the betting money is the clippers at minus two hundred where Lee Jenkins is a part of the front office. Lee Jenkins, the only person to crack Leonard, and really he told us that he walks around with a backpack with the basketball on it, and which car he drives, the second team is not the Knicks. The second favourite such that it is plus one twenty five is the raptors the Knicks occupy space with the warriors with the warrior. Oh, because he can Gary, carry you're your. rant lead. Right.

"We thought his game might have been limited, but we didn't know he went, he's the only guy who's gone into the playoffs. We know how good you are. We know how good you are. You're great. Oh, no. We didn't know how good you were right? It's almost like we forgot how good he was because he was playing like this before the injury and say that Tonio. He really was. But I'm intrigued by this finals because you have a guy going up against a super team. It's, it's Ken. Michael Jordan, take down a super team basically, by himself that's going to be interested. You also have the Kevin Durant storyline. And this is a series that there are absolutely gonna miss Kevin Durant. And he's not going to be playing in game one because historically Steph curry plays Toronto better than any team. But now they're going to put Hawaii on them without Kevin Durant on the floor, and how's that going to go for a guy that historically struggled in the NBA final, Golden State is just a different team altogether. Arden me are go sit outside for a couple of minutes. Oh, trouble. Lameta giving your clear your throat the other direction because you've been a disaster. Okay. I covered him phlegm. So we're not gonna do it. Kawhi leonard. Stu gods? Yes. Is he going if he wins the title, does he become more coveted free agent and Kevin Durant, because, oh gosh, these younger because he's younger if he beat this team to win a title. I'm not certain. He should be more coveted free agent. But he probably will become a more coveted thing. That is breathtaking to me, is what he did defensively to Jaanus. I've not seen. Nobody can slow Janas. He's literally, the only person in the world that can slow Jaanus. There's not another defender that can do it. I mean, what do you do if he wins this title Kawai, he'll have to championship rings, Kevin Durant has none? I mean Kawai Leonard is. Yeah, I guess, yeah, he'll be the prized free agent here coming up in July. What an exciting final. I am super excited for this. You're not what I can't believe Greg, Cody, not excited for what I can't believe, because, honestly, this sport is our most predictable sport. And it qualifies as a huge upset that the to beat the one and now. It's one against two from both conferences. But the part that is amazing to me, Stu gods. And is a legitimate surprise is you remember where the raptors were four games ago as they headed into overtime looking like they were blowing a game. They were going to be down three. Oh. And all of this was going to be about Jaanus. It wasn't going to be about coli Leonard. In fact, it was gonna be about honest so much that we aren't going to even notice that Jaanus was exposed if that ball bounces differently in game three. That's how quickly things change. Oh man. If you're looking at odds makers no matter who wins the championship it would seem as though they're still losing their best player considering what's favored at turns their next team, this is a fascinating final. It's that what's happened with the raptors is interesting just because they were done. They were done. They they're sitting there going into overtime Stu aunt, and he's played fifty minutes. He's hurt. He's clearly tired any takes the series from them in game three by winning and overtime where they'd gone down three like they should have gone down oath three given how they played at the end of the game. Right. We wouldn't be talking about any of this stuff. Instead Canada's going crazy. And Drake's gotta be there that's going to be a great final who's getting his Drake, annoying, everybody or just some of the people he's a great wrestling. He'll I think so.

"Wip what's up jeff hey how you doing good man how're you doing i honestly i i disagree with your take on i think that if you trade for kawhi leonard that you're gonna it's only way you're gonna win a championship you've gotta convince them like they did in oklahoma city for paul george what have you tried for jimmy butler what if not sooner free agency you sign klay thompson it's worth noting the lakers are apparently putting in calls to damian lillard and bradley beal trying to make moves just because it doesn't seem to be a move on the horizon that doesn't mean there's not a move out there yes i agree with that but i also think that kawhi leonard if he's healthy he's a top three player in the league and when when brett brown did that trade for zaire smith you said he's star hunting and i don't think and you heard about that report the jimmy butler wants to play with kyrie irving i don't think tyrod irving's come to philadelphia with jimmy butler yeah and jeff i appreciate the phone call i reject that premise like in the nba you can't be a top three or even a top five star if you're not your team's primary ball handler like the nfl network top one hundred don't give me anybody in the top ten held a top fifteen who isn't a quarterback all due respect to todd gurley all due respect to aaron donald it's quarterback league like in the nba it is a point guard or point forward whatever you wanna call the brian league kevin durant is an outstanding player he doesn't matter as much to his team as steph curry does even with he was with the oklahoma city thunder there'd be games were kevin durant would be lights out it didn't matter because you had russell westbrook in the nba you are defined by what your point guard or your point forward or whatever you wanna call your primary ball handler you're defined by what he does kawai leonard is not the primary ball handler he is not running an offense the way that james harden does if it's not james harden chris paul steph curry he's not that guy even damian lillard like kawhi leonard in his career has averaged two point three assists per game like i find it remarkable i saw on twitter the other day a couple of sixers fans were kicking around the idea of well should the sixers get jimmy butler and they're like jimmy butler is a ball stopper jimmy butler has averaged three and a half assists per game in his career and in each of the last three seasons never been lower than four point eight per game kawhi leonard has been two point three which is by the way worse than carmelo anthony the ultimate black hole in the nba like the way that we romanticize coli simply because he plays dot tough defense and simply because he doesn't talk i mean you ever think that maybe the reason that doesn't talk is because he just doesn't have a personality and the nba which is the ultimate star league or guys get movie deals kyrie irving guys get shoe contracts you ever think that maybe co i leonard he's just not that interesting i mean james harden might be the biggest introvert in the nba even he talks more than kawhi leonard but people love quakers he played tough defense it's a throwback to the eighties and nineties i mean first of all you don't even like you don't even like the nba in the eighties and nineties as much as you like today you'll look at the tv ratings and even then like it's i mean it's people who romanticize power running games in the nfl two quarterback sport you romanticize defense in the nba it's a point guard wing league i really don't get the whole kawhi leonard thing i'm sure he's a nice enough guy and there's a part of me there's a part of me that's really hoping this is just as group and he's just getting really bad advice from his uncle i will say that lonzo ball at some point you gotta be a man tell your dad he needs to chill the hell out leonard you need to be a man and at some point tell your uncle dude i'm not picking a team just because it's in los angeles i'm okay with him saying i.

"To convince him over a year to say there long term but the spurs for one second should not be concerned that if they trade him and if he likes to resign with the team they trade him to he gets about one eighty three million dollars according to bleacher report but if you want to go somewhere else after that it's a buck forty but why should the spurs care fees losing money he wants out of this organization so the spurs for one second should not care what kawhi leonard once they should just focus on presenting this to teens and to try to get the best available player or draft pick back for kawhi leonard and the future so we look at what could be next lakers are one team that obviously comes to mind first because that's where he wants to go as one of the destinations and they have some pieces they have draft picks they have they have ball and wouldn't that be something imagine the ball family teaming up with popovich he got lavar and pop those press conferences for popper already legendary they were just dead even better that'd be fun to see unfold and maybe then at the lakers do get kawhi leonard you eventually could also get free agency lebron james which has been rumored and then also paul george as well so lakers are one destination the celtics are another and the celtics they tried to get co i leonard in the past and now they've had the group of young players that have displayed that they are really good talent in the nba.
