Picture this Kobe Bryant and King James together on the Lakers and their prize better than Kobe and shack, perhaps well Bron was fantasizing on the Graham about what it would have been like to be a Laker when the Mamba with stillness prime posting this imagine if we had it wouldn't even be never mind twenty three twenty four living legend. Sheesh happy Halloween. Stephen I who would have benefited the most if Kobe and LeBron played together. Lebron James have benefited the most. I don't think there's any question about that. When you look LeBron James and his greatness as a player they about the adversity that he went through to get here. But also think about the fact that the few years he really have anybody stand in the face that that was the living in bodyman of accountability. Somebody that would be in his face challenging him to do what the hell he was supposed to do max Kellerman. And if y'all could get that footage for me that I asked for from y'all this morning max, I want you to look at this. I think is a twenty twelve all star game has the ball. All right. He has the ball. Kobe is denying him off face to face right there. It's Hemi Colby. And he tries to throw a court pass and Melo d weight and Kobe oh all getting on abroad. Why? And even their way is all people. It's about the dog games rather? They wanna see this all star game. And what they were doing this. Remember LeBron James had yet to capture championship. And what would the knock against them? What are you doing take? It is your this is your time. What the hell are you doing? I picked that moment and ask them the show that video because it crystallizes my point for this particular argument, those years where LeBron James was maturing, but couldn't get himself over the hawk was devoid of the killer mentality was susceptible to what people say, and what they felt how he has openly acknowledged how it inhibited him for years. That's why he calls losing in the finals to the Dallas Mavericks his greatest achievement because by would it show to shop, which I said, it was a very good show. He's doing a good job with it. The point is he was saying it was his greatest achievement. Why? Because when he lost. That's what his home in talented change. He hunkered down. Pat, Riley Dwade everybody they got on he had to ultimately embrace who he is. But also embraced the fact that you've got to step up and embrace the challenge and take what is rightfully yours if he will plan alongside Kobe Bryant hit a never had to go through that for that period of time because Kobe would have been in this behind from day one demanding that that greatness shine. It would have sound considerably earlier, and we might be actually having valid comparisons MJ well argued, but you're wrong. I'm not you are now. For the sake of argument here. What is LeBron really mean when he tweets that out? Well, Kobe and LeBron were both in some area that you can still call their primes. You could say it was a little post Kobe's prime and a little pre LeBron prime when they were both two of the best players in the game. Let's say LeBron had been on the Lakers. Then Phil Jackson is still a coach in the league. Whether or not in that year, he's coaching the Lakers. Let's say Phil Jackson's their coach that's a realistic scenario where they could have played together. And under those circumstances that was also a league before the three point revolution really before before Dan Tony system, kind of seeped into all coaching systems and totally changed the game. The warriors dynasty at cetera. Now, you mean to tell me LeBron benefits more from that pairing than Kobe think about this for a second. Phil Jackson coaching Kobe. And LeBron nobody has there. He has a slightly toned down, Michael Jordan and a super duper Scottie Pippen. They would've never lost. It would want all the time. And the reason is Kobe finally when he played with shack he played with eight physical force of nature. Order. You do understand that Kobe Bryant never played defense hip. Pip I'm talking about LeBron James is super duper Scottie Pippen. Kobe. Bryant is a slightly toned down. Michael, jordan. Kobe in his prime plead with a physical force of nature in Shaquille O'Neal, an unstoppable force, and they won three peat it it won three consecutive championship. Something the previous incarnation of Laker greats with Magic Johnson. We're Pat Riley coin three never did. But there was friction and it didn't last as long as it shouldn't even except for that one year where they went through the playoffs. Only one loss to Iverson Sixers they were never quite as great as maybe they should have been in those other little more vulnerable than they should have been. And the reason was Kobe was playing with a guy who demanded the ball in LeBron James, he's playing with an unstoppable force of nature of physical freak in a way like shack in that way. But who is a pass first guy who's saying yet take the ball? Kobe would be able to shine. Unlike he did in his actual career, which is just about as brightly as anyone who. Ever lived not only would they win all the time. Kobe would finally be set up in a situation where he can be shown at his very best a long term situation where he'd win more championships than anyone else and get the ball when he wanted it. Kobe would have benefited more. How many more rings will Kobe event several show about? Oh, yeah. Let me tell you. How many more will LeBron several far more than Kobe? Kobe already got two more than the fact that Amanda is let's be very very clear again, I talked about what served as an impediment to LeBron James success for the first eight years of his career. What are you saying they're together their whole careers in it? I know what I'm saying to you is that I'm looking at it from the perspective that LeBron being with Kobe would've never went through what he went through for as long as he did Kobe Bryant had gone to seven NBA finals. Kobe Bryant had captured five NBA. Championships. So you can modify it to some degree in additional one or two in there. Whatever the kids, but I'm not even going by the numbers per se in regards to Kobe. I am saying that the number that I'm paying attention to is not championships its years of unnecessary adversity. Here's brawn James went through because he didn't have. Colby. I got you. Here's the difference. Who led the team in scoring and the league in scoring asking you a question who led the league in scoring probably Coby Coby who would have been the alpha on the team Kobe. If Kobe gets seven championships with the numbers, he would have had playing next to LeBron James people would today be saying Kobe Bryant's the greatest player of all time and people like me who would say, maybe you would say timeout M J was better. We'd have to point out the reason Kobe looked as good as he did is because he was playing with LeBron James as unselfish superstar who was tasked I, but the general consensus by now, it'd be Kobe's the greatest player of all time that that means he's benefiting. I don't know if it would have been a general consensus number one. Because the biggest thing about Michael Jordan six rings is the fact that he was undefeated in six appearances and he retired from baseball. So not only did he have six. There are people that believe he could have had eight straight because he would have beaten Houston times we have lost. I'm just saying that what we can speculate about that. But I'm saying when you look at Michael Jordan, he wants six straight. Now. Also, he went three three it twice. And and the two years that he did it was because he really wasn't playing and those were the is Houston wanted and a lot of people believe Chicago with how do you say he was herrings had all these autumn saying is this again when you look at LeBron James did you and do we not pay attention to what those first eight years? You're not I'm not arguing that LeBron wouldn't also benefit. They. You know, what I'm saying to you is that the exponential benefits comes from LeBron because of how suffer if Corey Brian is not is not considered the greatest player of all time, except for some Laker Kobe fans, he's generally not even in the conversation. Some people who say what about Kobe putting them below Jordan still most basketball people if he played with LeBron he'd be considered the greatest ever in my opinion. Not that you or I would agree book, the consensus would be that means he benefits more say these parents shacking Kobe right shacks name comes. I m j and Pitman energies named comes first Kobe. And who do you want to say Wade kyri, whoever you want to say excuse me, LeBron and those guys? Lebron's name comes first Kobe and LeBron Kobe's name would have come first however, much credit. Lebron would have deserved even if LeBron would have been the better overall player, it would have been Koby the alpha Kobe's team, but you're beginning with Craig what chip missing is this Kobe Bryant is it considered the best in the best ever. Because. Obviously MJ and him played the same position. And we're going to think MJ I and I get that. But it's not like you look LeBron James because LeBron James is playing the same position has the same responsibilities as Kobe. We look at LeBron James as the greatest war forward who ever lived the physicality that he brings to the game him being six nine to sixty chiseled brick house can handle the ball a magic contemplate in terms of passwords all of this other stuff. Even though he has an obligation to score people look at him differently. What they the reason one of the biggest reasons that LeBron James's compared to Michael Jordan his because LeBron James came into the NBA given everybody indications he was coming for Jordan Bronco to reason. Why does the those are the reasons why because is because if you look at Kobe's game his game mirrored MJ more than LeBron's ever. Did is just that LeBron announced to the world he was coming for MJ. And that's why everybody looked those comparative. You think of what m j and Pippen did with Phil Jackson, which is one go six for six. Six now, take just a little bit of air at m j just like just a little bit stop plug it up. Right. And do this to Pippin. Learn it into Burke, and you're looking you're looking at it wrong. You know, why you're looking at it wrong. Because neither Kobe Nola Braun play defense better than MJ in Pippen. Neither of them. They would be slightly lesser defensively and even better offense and on the whole LeBron Kobe pairing in their primes, even MJ and rug and you're wrong. And you miss it formed why because you're not bringing into consideration the game that they played compared to the game that MJ Pippen that we're talking about the culture how far more physical. It was back in the day. Let's say what would even easier. But what would Jan Piven have done in this era in terms of how soft the hills it? But so Kobe. And again that defense is elite. Here's the business elite. Here's a different Pippin Pippin Lewis champion. Lakers lost the championship? Try beat the beat the Lakers for the championship. What happened in that series? When the bulls beat the Lakers in the championship the first finals, you remember how worth. Forget all that and picked up magic. And so if you got it magic magic who's usually six nine and look at over defenders, regarded Madge. No, not we're not what I'm saying to you is that, but Pippen LeBron has never been a defendant Pippen, as you do know that Pippen is eight nine to close hipping is a much more consistent defender, I'll say this. Now, he's braces play defense. No doubt. No doubt. I wouldn't compare LeBron at over the course of a season two Pittman as a defensive player, I will say this in terms of versatility. As a defender. Lebron is more like Dennis Rodman. Lebron at his best defensively could legitimately capably guard all five positions. That's not. That's not growing. That's not growing. Time. That's why you shouldn't be talking basketball because you're bringing up what he could do. I'm bringing up what he has this been plenty of tough. I'm never I will never question. The ability of LeBron James, there's nothing he can't do miss. He has shown a willingness religiously throughout the Giga not to accept a defensive assignment from Stockholm Vinit. Ron's game mesh well together at their best. Right. So so you have to Thompson players who ever lived who's games would mesh well together versus the greatest player who ever lived and a top fifty player maybe hired out of it. But wait a minute. What? Well, no, no, no. What is the debate? The debate was who've been in other you hold on. This is the point that I'm making this LeBron James for the first eight years of his career couldn't find himself that would've never happened with Kobe if Kobe his teammate he'd have never been lower if they had been tired what I'm trying to say, hey, LeBron today be considered the greatest player ever know. But Koby would be Kobe benefits. More don't think. So let's another topic. I wonder why he put this out yesterday. Interesting. We know he always has an agenda some narrative. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom my first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance good. It's it's it's like a cigarette. But not I don't miss smoking at all. Like, I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette. Ashra lingering odor make the switch and J dot com slash sports. Warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine is. Addictive chemical. For sports center right now. I'm Victoria Arlen one day after DJ Durkin was reinstated as Maryland's head football. Coach universities, president fired him college football reporter, Heather dinner, which explains why. A wave of backlash here in the state was simply too much for university president Wallace low to overcome. We're talking about politics state and local level all the way up to congress in Washington DC, governor, Larry HOGAN, wait wait in voicing strong objections to DJ Dirk and returning and then Wallace low had to look on his own campus where he met with deans department chairs academics who had to deal with a decision that was made that essentially put football ahead of higher education. And in the end that was too much for him to overcome. He made the decision on his own. And reverse course, I spoke with a source this morning within the program actually who told me that they feel like a weight has been taken off their chest. They are collectively relieved. And that's from all players whether they supported DJ or they didn't. I think that there's a sense that they are ready to move on. And they are ready to start talking. About Michigan state following two separate investigations into the June death of football player, Jordan, McNair, Maryland's board of regents recommended keeping Dirk and his head coach saying he was not totally responsible for McNair death. Now, we'll talk back to I take. Totally responsible keyword there. University president wall, stay low. If you're just joining us fire DJ, Dirk one day after the board of regents recommended keeping him as head coach will Cain here with us. Good data. Stephen, what's your reaction to all? This is should he should have never been reinstated. They should have moved on. They should have never brought him back to shouldn't have been. What transpired the last twenty four hours as a pertains to people who violate back? If off some people think he should have stayed the people's looking for him to leave. The reality of the situation is clear a kid died. He's not repeated killed the kid. He didn't kill Jordan McNair. Okay. And nobody's proclaiming that. But he has been accused of negligence of duty of the culture, the environment was considered toxic. You had some of the players who wanted him gone as a result of that the president wanted him gone and the border regions not only refused to do. So, but basically threaten the president's job to my understanding that if he didn't make the call they would they would let him go. And so when you have all of that going on and the public outcry it being what it is the reality of the situation is you combine that with the fact that you six and seven one year your foreign eight another year, you're five and three without him. You literally ask yourself. This coaches get paid two million five hundred and twelve thousand dollars. You got a big ten television contract and everything else to consider what the bad, publicity and. What the hell is the problem? What's to debate about the reality is is that he should have never been brought back, but I don't blame him for fighting. If somebody is saying. You responsible for my child being going? That's something you fight. But if you're saying, you should've acted more expeditiously, you should have done things. You should have been more thorough in terms of in terms of negligent is hard to argue against that. And so sometimes you just gotta cut your losses a safe that of the best interest program. I don't need to be here. And I'm sorry. He didn't do that. He had to be forced to. I don't know what the board of regents was thinking in the I don't understand the recommendations. Because this cannot be framed as well the brave stance by the university to not scapegoat someone when it's politically convenient. That's not what was going on here. In fact, you question that jumped to my mind when I saw the recommendation is wait a minute. If he was a great football coach, we understand how people bend over backwards because after all that's what people care about in the sports world. And these universities are a part of the sports world they care about their programs. And if you have a great winning coach, boy a lot of rash. Jose shins or made for behavior. That's not what this was his methods were dubious at best. They weren't producing the results that were desired. Right. So what did they need money? Or are they afraid they can't fire him with causing it can't recoup that money? And in fact, some of the reporting. Athletic departments in some financial straights. That's the only thing that makes sense to me here because the bottom line is this as a result of your methods and lack of preparedness for petite for potential consequences guy, gets heatstroke you've got to treat them as a result of that. There's a dead student athlete, Jordan McNair, lost his life. His father said the regents recommendation felt like he was spat, and it was like spending it as a stomach spitting in his face. I thought he said punched in the stomach also made. Anyway, the point is that when when when that look whatever and the reporting about the culture is not good. But even if you want to say, it's not a toxic culture. There's a death of a student athlete. And who is where does the buck? Stop on the field that has to stop with the head coach of I don't understand the recommendation and about-face getting rid of the head coach was the right thing to do. I don't like the why I don't like why Durkin was fired because he was fired because of public outcry and public pressure. I care about things on whether or not they are right or wrong. Please give me just a little bit of runway to lay this out. I don't do these things because I want to be contrarian because I'm attention seeking. But max, I do these things because I come back to the question that you asked and I don't find a satisfactory answer. Why would the board of regents been so dedicated to keeping DJ Durkan just twenty four hours ago? I mean, they could have known the public outcry was coming right? They should have seen. This would be the case. So why would they walk into that valley of the shadow of death? Please excuse the phrase. Why would they do that? And the only answer I can come up with max is because they believe DJ Durkan wasn't responsible. And that he was being scapegoated. Now. Listen for a moment here the report, and we the three of us when you were out last week, Molly reported on this. The report suggested DJ Durkan was not directly responsible for Jordan McNair death. He was. Not in charge of a toxic program. In fact, reports that it wasn't a toxic program now at found some things like a bullying and a culture where students weren't capable of speaking out against at thirty. And you said it I remember you saying last week what program doesn't chick. Absolutely I decided so I sit here, and I wonder clearly Maryland made mistakes, it's not about mistakes weren't being made athletic training. Staff took too long ninety minutes. Didn't cool Jordan McNair down a tragedy incurred who is to be held responsible. Who is to blame in the beginning. Maryland said not DJ Durkin. We will not scapegoat him. They took a pretty hard stance. I don't know if it was brave max, but they had no against public pressure and twenty four hours later because of massive public pressure from students in administrators and faculty and politicians as you heard had there didn't say he is fired. I don't like the why go with right question is hold on a second win. My question is first of all the only conclusion, I could come to that made any sense was they didn't think. Fire them with costs as a result of the port. Whatever else investigating. They did. And we need the money. We're strapped IMAX. Imax yet. Good. It's the university of Maryland. It's a public university. They can afford to fire DJ. Then the question I asked him when you say you don't like the why is our as frequently. The case our analysis is similar conclusions are different the why is unsatisfactory here. Why did they do in about-face you? They had to know that. There was enormous. Blowback coming from the media politically on campus were they not prepare for it. Well that speaks to incompetence. I would sit back isn't gone. I don't max I disagree with you. I don't think it speaks to competence. I think it speaks to personal relationships. You serpent what you should have done. We may have been the right thing to do to begin with. And we'll come to you by saying what I just had to Mex. I'll come to you with this. You ask the question. You talk about how you don't like the why you talk about how to border regions to this conclusion that wasn't the president's conclusion. The president wants to get rid of him of regions. Not only said, no. But with threatening your job, the president of the university had access to the same information Boorda reaches had access to. So why would you ask a question about the board of region because came to a conclusion that we were all surprised about twenty four hours ago? And I feel like it's my duty to go nine would they come? Yeah point. I'm not attacking point. I'm asking the question. What I'm saying to you is this the president has access to listen, the president has access to the same information. Right. The president candidate conclusion this man has to go. So to me the bigger question is why would the board of regents feel the need to go against the president? He overseas to at least consider that they believed their own investigative report that they believed DJ Durkan was not responding. Can I wanna I wanna make one we're both this? And I think it's a very valid point and one I fall back on I understand thirty. I understand where the buck stops you in the end were in charge of a program where young nineteen year old man died that simple, and that's clean, but it is not a standard that we uphold universally was held responsible when Korey stringer died in two thousand one dentist. Green was the head coach the Minnesota Vikings and Corey stringer died of heatstroke. Nobody said fire. Dennis green. Heatstroke? They didn't walk make him finish the drill and walk them around and wait until like ninety minutes. How I have to sit have to rely on the port. Why? Why? Brian kelly. Did anybody wanna fire Brian Kelly after the student athlete student athlete, but the student videographer they fell off the scaffolding just a few years ago at Notre Dame and died he wants. My view is why that example, that's not a good example. On hold on a second. Hold on a second. That's a little bit off track. My question for you is. I'd agree. You're not doing this. Just to be contrary. I think that there's something that doesn't sit right with you clearly because because if you have principles you say, wait a minute you've made a decision, and then you've buckled in the face of pressure. My question is not only will they had to know the pressure was coming. So what does this really about? But also, why is it that you are so strong on relying on the what the board of regents thinks about their official investigation rather than what the president thinks the various other thing that was done. Yes. I got laid it. Lead. It why in there because I believe that the obvious public pressure was there and that makes it the easier decision. It was the easy decision to scapegoat DJ. Would it been? I'm sorry. Do we ever think? This was the plan all along that they didn't feel like they had caused a fire him. So they knew that they would reinstate him. And then obviously, there'd be this outcry. And then they let him go. I don't know. Why would they what would that serve? So because they were they couldn't fire him. Right. And they were afraid that they didn't have the cost to be able to fire him. But then once they had the public outcry behind him, then they were able. Caused means like there's legal calls for you to recoup your money. They could've just as soon. Set the easier choice by four would have been to say let him go right to the conclusion that they thought it would have been too expensive. The easier choice was to come to the conclusion. Wallace low the president came to. I'm not saying it's wrong. I'm saying it's the easier choice. So when somebody in this case, the border regions comes to a conclusion that wasn't easy that wasn't popular. I want to know more affordable. Can you max? The point that I'm trying to minute later. Listen what I'm saying is you're talking about the border regions. And I'm thinking you should be talking more about the president the president has access to the same formation. He oversaw listen, they were his investigators as well. But he can't do conclusion we all expect wait a minute excuse me. You could say that. But even though he came to that conclusion, it's still within his right, especially at his position to draw that conclusion in the border region, you, sir. Tis threatened his job. They made an unpopular decision. Asking the question about why threaten the president's job if he were to let go of the head. I have to least consider that they considered it the correct, okay? Did you hear what I'm saying? They looked at the report and go, you know, what public pressure and ease would requires leading Dirk and go, but he's not responsible. So let's do the right thing and hold onto them. I have to consider that possibility and twenty four hours later when public pressure was out of control, and they are a public institution they go. We'd better go. Apply to him because he was never of the mindset that should be kept. It is is the board of regents behavior. We're trying to let's let me let me get to your way of thinking. I think that there's a flaw. According to the way, we've been arguing for a while. I understand you're you want to stick to the principles. But is it more common for board of regents to do the right thing that base this on principle, or is it I give you that? I'm not trying to be flipping if bureaucracy came to a conclusion, and it was to do the right thing. I would be considering a surprise your conclusion should be that financial decision. It turned out the wrong one great conversation without a leave. It there will thank you for being with us again feel for the whole McNair family. Absolutely. So here's the deal two nights after Klay Thompson group. Steph Curry's NBA record for threes in a game on his way to fifty two points. Curry put on his own show with thirty seven points nine assists in the warriors win over the pelicans have been fantastic this season curry is leading the league in scoring with thirty three points per game. And has only one game that season where he has scored less than twenty nine. Stephen a Smith is chef curry the league in BT this year right now, he is right now he is. I mean, we can look at Greek freak and Anthony Davis LeBron James celebrity and over twenty seven the game for men. I mean, the Los Angeles we get all of that. But max, I'm seeing the kind of stuff from his brother that. I saw he wanted. He I mean, he's got fifty five three pointers to nine games of. He's got fifty one point explosion and three quarters. This do when you see the way he's dancing on everybody his movement without the basketball his getting to the whole put in the ball on the floor. And it's like it was bad all of these years to watch him shoot the ball the way that they shoot the ball. But what's also scary it now, I don't think to these first games I've ever seen the Golden State Warriors be so skilled at getting him the ball the way that they do their movement of the basketball, they unselfishness. I mean, you got no name guys throwing behind the back passes and passes between their legs because they know where he's going to be boom because he'll be there. They know what this guy's going to do. They're locked in on Steph curry in a way, you don't see most fit. I'm talking about me watching basketball for decades. And I'll see a guy get past half court he'll separate himself from what defender hold is all mouth go and you give him the ball. And you move out the way, no. You got guys sitting up there flipping up all over the shoulder behind the back between their legs and throwing it to spots because they know he's going to be the it's like everyone's into with this guy. And they're finding ways he's getting shots on his own. But they're also adroit at kidding him. The ball now to me even better than before. Plus, he's a little bigger, and I stood next to him the other day max and all this stuff about him being six one. Where the hell I'm six one six three six one. This dude is over. But I'm saying standing next to me tough. I thought I was like right here. Listen. So you're getting a little bigger. He's getting a little much bigger who'll the Greek freak. Oh, gotcha. How many undefeated teams they are in the NBA right now, the Greek freaks, and you know, doesn't play with Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson. No one knows breaking the three point record for the Greek freak. Nobody's doing that. For him. He's not playing with any other MVP's Chris Middleton's of very good player. Good play very good plan at brogden coming along. And they got some guys, but they are undefeated because this dude has lost his mind. The question was MVP this year going in. There was a thing about LeBron. He's going to go for it. I said Anthony Davis. He's poised to take over from LeBron. He's only one year older than the Greek freak you don't even realize how young Anthony Davis is. Yes. But the freak is one year younger than Anthony Davis. And if this is his breakout your he's still not really shooting the ball. God. Could you imagine? If he started shooting won't be degree Greek freak had a jump shot. Great best ball. And even as it is guys in thirty minutes a game. He's giving you twenty five and. Teen with almost six assists a game almost two blocks game efficiency through the roof over fifty percent from the field playing defense and leading his team in a conference where you have a starting five of Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward. Jalen Brown, and Jason Tatum and Al Horford with a bench where you have guys just talking about Siachen. Oh, Janna newbie, right? With co why Leonard and van fleet gets the press off the bench. But the guys I just mentioned maybe more valuable than vanfleet. And I'm not even talking about your point Cayo Lau redo, it were the fact that Danny green came with or you had surgery Baca there, so loaded. Those are the two teams Toronto and Boston that I look at as the real threats to the warriors who have no real threaten the west this year. And neither one of those teams are undefeated because the Greek freak is in Milwaukee that man's the MVP. Right. Nice. Come and let me tell you the right now, I am not here to throw shade on Greek freak. He is a superstar. He's averaged twenty seven and ten or on nearly fifty three percent shooting is something special. But max, I just want to read these numbers to you. Because you're talking about the Greek freak let me just read the numbers T. Please. Steph Curry's averaging thirty three again thirty three on fifty five percent shooting from the field. Excuse me. Not six eleven seven feet shooting a high percentage shot practically every top because you get to the whole it will that's not Steph curry Steph curry is average these average the Twitter he's averaging thirty three. He's shooting. Fifty five percent from the field. Fifty three percent from three point eight fifty three percents getting lonely. Optus tell you right now, you can give me the Greek freak all day. I'm telling you if this keeps up there's no way in hell that Steph curry is not gonna win the league in pick LeBron Steph curry, and I'm not saying. Whoa. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I'm asking you this question. This is this is gonna put into perspective how great staff careers. Are you sure you will in the say, isn't that stateable? No, I'm saying what is more. What is more sustainable? No. No, no, no. Obviously, you could surmise that is the Greek freak because he's told any can get to the root causes so athletic opt to say that he had six three suited from thirty. Are you su- on? He won't continue this noble. Let me ask you. That's my point in any conference with the raptors and the Celtics are you? Sure. The bucks won't have the best record by the end of the season. Yes, I'm not sure. I am. Sure. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Belinda Collins live on the scene of a recent lightning storm here to describe the event a TV tray.

Rams and saints are combined fourteen in one this season. Drew Brees is the NFL's all time leader in career passing yardage, but has never won the MVP award and finished second three times specially hard to believe Darren Woodson with us. Now what's going on there? Sitting here waiting to come home for the last thirty minutes. You guys been slobbering over the Greek freak and Steph curry over there this whole time. It's talk a little put ball. As long as we don't have to talk about the Cowboys. No talking. We're talking VP with the Cowboys. That were giants still in this. I didn't. Oh. Here yet they dropped out. Let's say. Is this the game that he went breeze wins the MVP award? So I think they will season that he's having having completed seventy seven percent of his passes Baldwin out the way that he is obviously Patrick Mahomes is the guy that comes to everybody's mind right now because he's been absolutely phenomenal. But you said to the greatness of jewelries we're talking about the all time leading pass in NFL history who has never won a league in. Because usually when he shined Brady was throwing fifty touchdowns to Randy moss. So, you know, having another N VP caliber season it route to another Super Bowl appearance or Aaron Rodgers had a MVP or whatever drew Brees is the one that has received the shorter the stick per se throughout his career. I think this year would New Orleans knock on the door with them having the potential to knock off the Rams if he puts forth a stellar performance. And as New Orleans Saints are Super Bowl title contenders. Complain off time and we find ourselves talking about them against. The Rams I think that ultimately, you will you, sir. Patrick Mahomes, and drew Brees will win the MVP assuming he plays lights out in a game of this magnitude on Sunday he could play lights out. He's still listen. He's not the MVP. I don't think he's going to win it this year. Now, Stephen you'd have been better off if you said, he's a sentimental favorite because he's never won it. And he broke the passing record this year at all these kind of things and so like, maybe they'll give it to them. But I don't see it. First of all, he always plays better at home. Like if you play daily fantasy, you know, drew Brees at home, take them. He's gonna light it up. But that split home road points out maybe that he's benefited by where he plays benefiting by where he plays. Now. I don't want to one of my favorite players of all time. It sounds like a marketing guest, maybe a top ten all time quarterback. I have them right at nine or ten and it sounds like I'm down on them or something or he's not the MVP. He's not quite Brady your Payton or Rogers or someone like that. But everyone roots for drew Brees for good reason. He's he's so rude like. It's impossible to root against them. So I'm rooting for my hope he gets it. I just don't see it. First of all Mahomes is setting records on an offense. It's unstoppable. Secondly, the Rams look like the best team in football nave two candidates Goff. And Todd Gurley allows that play action who allows that offense to go, and is putting up ridiculous numbers that plus the fact that everyone knows breezes putting up those numbers because of his home field advantage. Otherwise, the numbers wouldn't be the same. We'll keep him from being MVP, even though he's a sentimental favorite. I think he's a sentimental favorite. Like, you just said, but I think at the same time when you you look at this game. I don't think this game is going to be the tail till of drew Brees winning the MVP. This is going to have to be about a body of work throughout the rest of the regular season. And winning for drew Brees. I guarantee you one thing he's thinking about right now, it's not about the MVP. It's about winning this game and home field advantage moving forward, which gives him a chance to become the MVP. But if they don't take care of business and don't win this game. Then they're thinking about traveling to Los Angeles at the end of the season. It's about winning this book ball game and then setting yourself up, but they're going to we're going to Baillieu everyone from top to bottom whether it's Todd Gurley or Jared Goff. We're gonna look at their numbers at cumulative at the end of the season men were going to say, okay. Who's the winner of the people that won't be just because of this game? Well, no doubt that drew Brees is isn't thinking about end VP. He's thinking about winning this game. But last time I checked drew Brees don't work on. I take I do. So I'm gonna think about it. Okay. He play his game. I think about it. He do his job. I do mine. My bigger point is this. It's games. Like this that you alternate defer to to decipher whether someone is worthy of MVP when we watched Patrick Mahomes. It wasn't just that. He put up numbers. What do we keep raving about? We keep talking about how he performed in the second half against New England because you were going up against Tom Brady. You know, you got is moments. Like this that define you during a season a particular season when you come to the award. This is the game that everybody's gonna look for drew brand to be big town in order for that to happen. The offense of line in for New Orleans is going to have to be able to hold their own against at defend those defensive tackles which did happen last week. You know with the Packers who were finally healthy. I thought that may have been the upset game. And they really didn't very good job. You think New Orleans can handle those tackles. Yeah. Absolutely. And I think listen, I think the game is going to be a four. Game, of course. But the one thing that you watch when you're watching the ram their weaknesses on that deep inside of the ball in his greatest air. Donald is in Dhamma can sue and Brocker teams are running a football on consistently. So you don't think that they're going to go to New Orleans and Mark Ingram in Kamara are going to be a big problem for them. It's going to absolutely be a big problem. I don't think they stopped the Saint as far as running the football. And I think that's the right now the key for just like the Kansas City Chiefs. The achilles heel for the Los Angeles Rams is their deep is great. Aaron Donald is their deep is the weakness. All teams got to worry about Dante Fowler coming at to. It's not just the middle. Now, you've got a edge rusher. Real quick. He's is I know drew visas never wanted. But you really think like fans wanna see drew Brees win it not Patrick Mahomes. Like the sexy taken the league by store guy. Yeah. Absolutely. I think not only they want to see drew Brees win it when the MVP they wanna see drew Brees Tom Brady and the Super Bowl, and I'm one of those guys that wants to see that matchup because we're talking we're talking about drew Brees his legacy. Could you imagine he already beat Peyton Manning and Super Bowl? And now he can hopefully base Tom Brady in a Super Bowl. You're talking about leaving a legacy. That's what you want. I don't I think it'd be just as appealing for folks to see drew Brees versus Patrick Mahomes at a Super Bowl too. By the way, another MVP candidate. We haven't brought up who has some sentimental value. Also, Philip rivers who's never one one or one a super brings on a Super Bowl contender. Let's going to bring up some sentimental value Stephen A on Monday when we're all in Dallas. And all the Cowboys fans are out there. Hold on. The need to be scared. I'll get knocked at prom getting off the plane hanging out, and I'm gonna be walking the streets at Dallas day. I'm in and out. I appreciate you. We'll see this weekend. So you're Bob, Molly. Sportscenter right now, I'm Victoria Arlen. What does it take to stop a Lakers losing streak? Maybe Halloween appearance from Jason. That's exactly what LeBron James did last night showing up to the staple center. Ten seconds left in the game. Luca Danni kick dry hits a tough shot in the lane ties the game at one thirteen Lakers possession. Lebron James drive end to end in his actually fouled by Wesley Matthews. He missed the first free throw hit the second free throw giving the Lakers a one point victory. And also a learning experience. Extremely happy. We're going through. There's no you can talk about it. You can preach about it. You can watch them about it. But the best teacher life experience his great that these young guys are getting this experience playing. He's tight close games tonight. We was on the other side of we lost a couple when we were same was the same situation against Antonio. We lost same situation happened tonight. We want to learn from. Now, I take. Thanks doria. So we asked you guys to weigh in on our social topic of the day. Who would be the better do all the broad and Coby Coby and shafts. The results are in fifty seven percents. They Kobe and Jack how bad fellas all depends on the era to me if in this era, no way in hell with Kobe and Shaq via better combo, then Kobe and LeBron and this era even ever, but in that era because of the physicality, I think different even in that era Kobe and LeBron because it would have lasted long term because Kobe wants to rock and LeBron would have given it to them. There wouldn't be a problem that way Kobe would be alpha. Lebron would be the do everything man, and they would win the championship every single year. And there's nothing anyone could've done about it. Honestly don't know the answer to that question. But I would tell you that there are people who don't believe that LeBron would has been as receptive. As you say, well, that's a whole other. Know. Having Hugh Jackson here in studio with us tomorrow. Now, it's time for coast to coast day everybody, thanks for being with us.
