"Just comes over for his brother, who at the time. Nobody knew what he was going to be people in waiting for the Lakers to fail for a long time. So of course now that they're vulnerable. They're going to pick it them. They're going to leak things. They're going to do all these things. It is genie buses job to stem that, and there is an element to me of almost the way, she has been covered in this of what I would call almost a reverse sexism, which was, I think she, she was initially treated with kid gloves by the media in a way, her brother's wouldn't have been because understandably I think most progressive minded people fair-minded people were very happy to see a woman be in this position of power in major American sports. Leadership ownership. We haven't really seen that. But now you have to remove that anything from it say, man woman, whatever, are you doing a good job? Are you a quick for this job and? Any bus has given no indication that she is. And the fact that Linda Rambis is the shadow owner of this team like you gotta be kidding me. Well, all the dirty laundry is being aired out, and we continue to see that, but Antoine from your perspective where the Lakers go from here. I mean, we can point to genie bus and say about ownership, but she also has the final say in a lot of things that are happening. What do you think the Lakers can do now at this point? The free try to last in those another talented player to play a long south in the Brian, James and also try to figure out what are you going to do with these young guys? You guess talent there you don't have to visit we, we gotta stop. Call them young because it's starting to get state third of year. So these guys can play, so you're going to do you believe in this core guys that you brought in that you draft it to get you over the hump to play when LeBron James, you have to make that decision. I'm obviously going to go out to the best free agents that's out there. It's still LA that's not getting us. Not understand that and you still have LeBron James on the team. So it's still a lot of value in the team is just a matter of who you go out to who you can, you know, get to come aboard is, I don't think plans look at was going on the front office. I think players look at more situations where how much money they can make what situation going to be on the court off the court. I don't think they look at everything that's going on top. I mean it plays a low part, but I don't think they played it pays the Bill for them not to want to go to. LA LA. It's still LA and still one of the best free agency destig-, that's nation. And if they don't get a free agent this summer, they screwed up two seasons because they punted a bit on last year to keep the cap space open for this, or they weren't gonna superstar longside LeBron but they could have gotten better complimentary pieces. Maybe hit the side of the bracket that Portland hit make a run in the playoffs. Instead, they, they punted somewhat. They thought they make the playoffs for the punit onset on nineteen in order to go after it, and twenty they might if they miss, they've punted on two years free agency is going to be fun. Antoine thanking similarly with us today, we appreciate a coming up as a wide the best player in the finals. That's next on first things first, thank you for listening to the first things. First podcast, remember, leave us a review and tell us what you think subscribe to the podcast on apple podcasts and catch us on f s one Monday through Friday, six thirty AM Easter for Chris Carter, Nick.

"Outs his brain trust the people that he was going to believe in, even if he had to take rob Pelinka everybody else around me would have been my guys that I trust, especially if I know I was not going to be in the office every day and not be able to police things. Everyday that staff would have been all my guys that I trust to go out and scout foot me do all my going to colleges overseas. This things that's needed on, on a day-to-day basis. I would have that in place, along with the coach yet genius has to take a lot of the blame for it, because she's the owner of the team, and she hired an appointed these people. She hired rob Pelinka. She hired Magic Johnson. It was never going to be a relationship that was going to work. So who's going to take responsibility for that? The person hired them should have done that Magic Johnson, never had a chance because he never had realistic expectations. What magic was trying to accomplish in doing that part time. They just don't go together. Now you see here. Right. He should have hired his own. Stay. From the beginning someone who wouldn't know like you need certain agreements, so that, you know, in this partnership, this is exactly what I'm going to do. So we can get realistic expectations because if you expect me to be here, ten to twelve hours and I'm not there. There is a certain amount of disappointment in doing that. So that was not clear and Jenny bus should have been to clear that up from the beginning. But the Lakers, there's been one constant through this last six years, where them in the Knicks. They have lost the same number games. The New York Knicks worst franchise in NBA, stim-, Baskin. Yes. So who's been the consistent in that that's been owner. She was there before she was there during, and she's one of the few there after so to me, the buck stops. Right with her and to me, it's not gonna get any better anytime soon. Because she's extended all of her relationships. I mean Magic Johnson. All right. He's running basketball. Rations. Kobe Bryant's agent is the general manager. I got Linda Rambus. I'm I'm sending information to hurt seeing if she likes it her husband's working she wanted they want him to be on the staff. I got Jason Kidd, who potentially to coach the next time it's a mess, and it's not going to get any better free agency to me. Nick is not, not unless they pulled an upset and Kawai went there. Are they were able to pull off the Anthony Davis trade to me? This is just the beginning of LeBron James in his career with regret twos in Los Angeles. I just can't believe that the Lakers are finding themselves on today's it. What's it may twenty-ninth find themselves here when on April ninth magic gave them in a scape route, it's when you there's a downside to hiring legends. One day, sometimes it's got a fire legend. And so there's a downside to hiring magic, and then learning wait, he and rob don't seem to work well together they don't like. Each other as an added downside magic seems to have somewhat archaic view of how to build a basketball team by going after the land Stevenson's Michael Beazley's of the world. But can you fire magic and you fire the greatest Laker don't need to he walks out the door, walks out, rob Pelinka is a guy that clearly as you said, in the lead in has a reputation, not just from other agents, but it being a little duplicitous not necessarily always shooting straight with you. So even if Kobe's got a great relationship with him doesn't mean everyone does and magic gave you the opportunity to have a hard reset the moment, they decided we are not taking that opportunity. Then, then what you must do is get in front of a camera and say, I love magic like a brother. But as president belabors he was the problem..

"I get why eight could theoretically make sense. I don't know of practically it does. All right. Coming up thick around this is going to get good. No more final soccer back to the Lakers. Of course. Will the dysfunction around the organization? Keep them from landing, a marquee free agent. That's next on first things. First. This article that came out yesterday describing the Lakers dysfunction in detail. Among the accusations Magic Johnson was described as a bully GM. Rob Pelinka doesn't always seem to tell the truth and LeBron's agent, Rich Paul was described as a culture killer advocating for Luke Walton to be gone as early as November of last season. Antoine, who is to blame for the Lakers to slunk Shen. What you gotta start up top star with Jenny. She's fide. I wanna start with say she takes fifty percent of it, and then magistrates fifty percent. I think one did a terrific job and high. Imagine Josh somebody she believed trusting she put a faith in and she did it gets out. But you can't hire Magic Johnson. The guy who's a great business man who's who's built is empire to six hundred million dollars. Is what's what he says to not give them for control. And now he did not have full control of this. Team not one not being able to pick his coach bring his coach in not being able to hire a fight of people that he wanted to hire fire she held titles, and people in inquests most when he wanted to get rid of them. But when you give a guy like Magic Johnson total control. You got to believe the knows he's doing the right thing and now seeing showed you that when he was able to land the best player in the world and LeBron James, you have to sit back and trust them, and he was gonna build it. He had idea a plan to build this thing up to get the team back the championship level as she was not willing to part ways, friendship with different people into organization with those friends, whether there's the Rams is obviously, while Pelinka for some reason, has a hold on it maybe got something to do with Kobe. You never know what's, what's going on with that. But if you're going to give it the magic, you gotta give them four control and let him go in there and pick his own own staff. The only mistake out magic really, really may I thought when he took over the job he said a high his own staff. What did the head coach the scout?.

"This, the Simon that I wanna give boogie cousins pass it converts, final to the NBA. Finals are is this, the Simon I wanna give him the biggest stage. He's ever been at. I want you to play a role that you've never played. I don't think boogie cousins has the mental wherewithal, and I don't think, physically he's healthy enough, that in those eight to fifteen minutes, I need you to play defense, grab rebounds. I don't need you to be concerned. So I believe that the chemistry it can be altered with him coming in the thing. That I'm worried about the most is the referees. We haven't heard anything last two rounds. The reason why because the players Draymond green and others in the NBA. The guys stop complaining. They stopped attacking the referees and realizing that man that we need these guys to biltrite. We don't need to referees against us yesterday. They announce who the refs are Scott foster, of course, he's going to be ref in a couple of these games. So what if I bring boogie into bring the refs back in that now I gotta beat the guys on the court and I still got to beat the refs believe that's a real thing. If Billy cousins is activated, I think Steve Kerr San questionable because then the nine days, they had, I guarantee you, they haven't played five on five basketball, I guarantee, he didn't wanna put Steph in clay in two thousand five when you can really take a look at the markets and see how he's plan against a couple of guys took the twelve or thirteen guy, a couple coaches, yet, it's hard to make that assessment to figure if it can be able to help you. But I understand why he's thinking about it because he's a guy talking about an all-star. He may be able to give you a little somebody could be on the floor to me of Marcus on the floor. And if Marcus not flow, which I don't think he's going to be able to play a lot in this series. Boogie cousins can help you out in the series. How do you think this could potentially impact his free agency? Got to get healthy. I mean you look at last year, and he talked about it, that he didn't get a lot of offers and you know, he went out and cause some teams yourself. I think he proved everybody that he was before this injury that he was back and he could play at a very high level. Again, I think he has to be very smart. I think he has understand what the market value is going to be for him in may not be two three you deal right now. He may have to take another one year deal. But in a situation was going to get an opportunity to play thirty minutes ninety show get back to that. So we've got to get the money aspect out of it. And think about the team in the situation, he wants to be an may be going back to Golden State. They make bring him back. One enormous edge. The warriors have in these finals is the entirety of the Rosser sensually has played in games at this level. Like who are we talking about that's going to play real minutes for Golden State? This is going to be the first trip to the NBA finals like nobody in the top seven their rotation except for boogie boogie. You mentioned how it gets ratchet up each round. He never played in. Playoff game before this year. He was in the argument for greatest players. NBA history to never play in a playoff game. He didn't get a lot of playoff experience. He got a game and a fraction of a quarter and that was first round against the clippers. And so for him to be thrown into this, it would be unlike almost any situation in NBA history. There are not guys who their first real playoff experience is the NBA finals that doesn't happen in the NBA, and so you'd be asking a lot of a perfectly healthy player. Ask a guy coming off in injury to take a role. He's had in a spotlight. He's never had against the intensity level. He's never had to play at. That's an enormous ask for the warriors. Even I'm sure in a vacuum. We need rebounding. We might need a little off into punt with our second unit..

"With thirty takes twelve thirty. Cow lead Browns alone. Back here with Antwan wealth problems. We're talking DeMarcus cousins. He went down early in the postseason with a torn quad and it's questionable for game one of the finals. Boogie is still hoping to get on the Florida. How bring home a title for Golden State. Cousin says not a quitter. It's going to take a lot for me to fall. It's going to take an army and a navy. I'm just going to go down fighting than working tail off to get to this point. But I am healthy enough Antoine. How should the warriors use cousins if he is, in fact running go and healthy. This'll be tough because their best five have the five when they play small, they've shown that throughout the playoffs kevon looney is playing great basketball. He just coming off a great west conference series where he shot seventy eight percent from the field and to be able to wait a guy that the markets causes. It's going to be very difficult to not think office, we ought to think defensively full team this not great defensively. You're going to have. Be able to guard at a Mark Asala down the floor. I don't see how causes gonna be able to play and Marcus agai on the place thirty plus minutes for Toronto. I don't think they're going to be able to play him thirty plus minutes against Golden State, so I don't see a lot of opportunity right now on the floor. And I know Steve Kerr wants to do right by the guy. Hopefully get him out there, making really Philip part of this championship run. But the best lineup for Golden State is play small play five. And you have to find a way to keep Kevin lonely because he's become a really, really good for the St. Antoine. What was the first year for you? The first teen of your career when you're at the latter stages when you went from featured guy starting to roll player off the bench. Do you remember when that was that was when I signed with the Miami Heat, I got the fall cost? Stay he was like listen. We're gonna bring you off the bitch begin. Again from stop you day's gonna start. If you want to come off the bitch, I can run plays for you..

"And you can believe it's hard to put together everything that they have in all the chaos in training camp. And believe that, oh, this is a championship caliber. So don't forget the opposition, Denver. Kansas City and the chargers. So for me, this is not the group that I would put together to beat them. Listen. You mentioned five guys I didn't know Bill Walsh unwritten, but I it smartening it's in line with something that I believe for a long time, which is fifty three man locker room. You're gonna about a half dozen guys that are bible study home every night is sues practice over about a half dozen guys that are not necessarily going to bible study and they're going somewhere else right after practice is over. And then you've got guys in the middle. A lot of them were young a lot of them were finding out who they're going to be as professionals. And if you have a team that's got ten to twelve guys in the bible study. Then all of a sudden, more of those that tend to twelve becomes fourteen to sixteen become sixteen to eighteen because that becomes the powerful group of the locker room. But the other thing works the same way to what happened in Cincinnati. Nearly two thousand you had too many above the threshold of edge guys and then guys that maybe wouldn't have been edge, guys like well that seems fun. That seems to be the popular click. And now you've got twelve to fourteen now you've got fourteen to sixteen edge guys. But if we were listing. On NFL rousers. Fifty guys. I'm thirty two teams sixteen hundred guys the two guys with the absolute shakiest rap sheets. The raiders might have gone out of their way, this offseason employ him. Both bond has Burfoot is a minutes is dangerous and could really really hurt someone on the football field. Almost ended in Tonio Browns and couldn't ended his life. I mean he has an has been that way since college. Regina cognito got thrown out in Nebraska sensually. He left after being suspended indefinitely thing got thrown out a word, and we, we know who is we know he uses racial slurs against teammates against trainers against opponents. We know that he has had real bout with what I would consider psychiatric issues and what he is considered psychiatric issues. Yes. Up to an including in the last year. I mean, here's the latest thing on his rap sheet arrested for threatening to shoot employs funeral home. Well. Making arrangements for his father. He had two handguns three rifles into suppressor. That's a silencer employee said, incognito wanted to quote cut his father's head off, for research purposes, and then walk through the funeral home punching caskets throwing things there's guys and there's maniacs and the idea that Jon Gruden would lean into this. Like we already think the raiders might have a little dysfunction, will let me sign Richie incognito who didn't even play football last year. Who's he won't point was a really good player. It's gonna be your fifteen and he was out of football last year. You don't need him. You don't have to have him. It's on the backdrop of who went out the door Amari Cooper. But when no Amari Cooper, I know his mom, he's from the tough streets of Miami, when he was deciding go to any college in the country, he said coach, I wanna go to Alabama because I know what's best for my family. I knew I gotta go away from Miami to get away from. So I can learn about life in Nick statements the best teacher he is. Is a great human being Khalil Mack. Another great human being guy who made them. So he didn't have a whole bunch of division. One offers made himself to all American University of buffalo. And then in one the best defensive in a great locker room guy..

"And he does have some Michael, you don't think about it may because the braids he upset you. You may not think about it, but he does. And a lot of different areas because he's one of the best two way. If not the best way playing in the two way he MIR's Mike and a lot of ways on the defensive in, you don't see a lot of players that just take the ball away from the opposition. That's what MJ was able to do on a regular basis. That's what Kawais able to do as far as the mid rains game. That's the part that doc is talking about. Because m j and in another move that he is the, the, the multiple between the legs that was m j two we've seen Kawai yoyo it a few times. Let me do it again. That was m j and then I'm going to pull up from fifteen twelve get to a certain spot a lot like the legendary but Dr king did, so I could see the similarities there, most NBA players aren't built that way. But this has evolved in Kawai man. He started three feet away from the bucket. He talks about San Antonio, how they taught him how the shoot the ball how shoot his free throws, and eventually get him to three point line. And so the Evelyn all these young players out there. Ben Simmons more town than quiet. Whatever have he started off like that. That's the way you develop the become a complete player. And that's what we're witnessing, and it's so funny, you mentioned Bernard king, because that's the people go to Michael Jordan. But the Bernard king, which is there's thirteen spots on the floor that I want to get to. I will get there. And I will only shoot from those spots quite got his spot on the baseline the corner, three and then the shorter shot which is the shot he hit to win game. Seventy obviously has the wings, the top of the key. But I won't be I'm saying Doc Rivers because I think people here. Oh, now he's Michael Jordan. He's not. He's the best player since Michael, Jordan. He's saying, stylistically, he's similar to them. Koby obviously neared his entire game after MJ's, but cope, nj took much smarter shots than Koby and did it at a much higher officiency quite sufficiency. This postseason the last postseason played in has been really, really good. And there are some elements where just to your eye, you could. See Michael going to those same spots, taking those same shots. It's not saying the players comparable, it stylistically what they're doing. And in this playoff run he is playing it a near Jordan, esque level on both end. All right Antoine. We're going to see a little bit later in the show, but coming up the raiders, the adding too many big personalities that's next and first things first is bid, personalities bad guys. Uh-huh. Box. Little biggest rivalry heats up as inky hosts the Red Sox. It all starts at seven eastern. Check local listings for the game in your area. Get to the raiders in a second. But first Baker Mayfield hits was chard Higgins, nice pass a practice key middle don't feed in we don't get much video of practicing. So the OTA's you can get hurt because they are going live, socially, why receivers in DB's Higgins is one of the guys that could be the third or fourth guide there in Cleveland for Baker Mayfield. Antonio Calloway gonna be balanced out that I believe they're going to have won the best offenses Nick in the NFL. It's not hype Colin cowherd. You got that take that Colin nationals graves trae Turner. Superb diving stop middle. Nice throw for the out, by the way, is being con-. We'll be with him at twelve thirty eastern today.

"And he's in the post, and he's on the wing. I think that they're gonna force coli. To pass the basketball is much as possible. But try to stay within their integrity when they got it LeBron. They couldn't take the ball Allah lebrons hands, because he moved around so much. He didn't handle the ball is much. He's done with the Laker. So it made it hard to impossible. That's why became let's just contain them. Let's be physical with him. I believe a problem for Kawai is foul trouble ego Dala, and clay, if they get in any type of foul trouble, they don't have an answer. I don't believe drain not king guard him for twenty minutes. I believe that the dream, lots lack of moving side to side in gray. Mama, definitely. Get in foul trouble. So I'm looking forward to seeing what the warriors, we'll do. This is the worst defensive warriors team. We've seen in this five-year run, though. And if they are going to cause I think they will do exactly what you're talking about a Fairmount, particularly if qui- is the one bring the ball court, which he has been doing at times dream on won't be a part of that. Because drain onto the key to the three Mandy. Defense they would be running if they send to Adam Jones got kind of play center field, but no matter what defends the warriors qui-. I want the audience understand the type of problem that's on their hands. Twenty eight and five on fifty three percent from the field. Forty six percent from three that's quite Leonard thought last time. He was in the playoffs. This isn't a one year wonder here. That's quite Leonard what he was doing until Zaza maimed him by putting his foot under his ankle. Like so this year's thirty one nine and four on slightly actually worse. Percentages, like qui- was building the resume of all around playoff killer, up until midway through the third quarter of the Western Conference finals that the Spurs had a huge lead on before he got hurt and they in play the rest of that series basically didn't play at all last year. And then he picked up this year exactly where he left off. He had a really interesting quote during the season that I had forgotten, Kevin O'Connor mentioned on his podcast yesterday, which was. Regular season games, he said, are my practices to get ready for the postseason and kyri. It's similar commentary, and then the postseason came, and he flow fell flat. Co I said that and he is proven himself right to load management that working on the weaknesses in his game throughout the regular season. So he is peaking at the exact right moment, which is to say, no matter, what defense, they play, they trying to play him, straight up if they blitz him if they do a little bit of both today, have a rotation of guys on no matter what defense you throw them quite as going to hurt you to question is to what degree. And when you do force the ball out of his hands who else can make shots or those guys going to miss the open shots, general with all that being said, Antoine. Let's go back to what Doc Rivers mentioned that this is the most like MJ that, we've seen what have you seen Kurai in a comparison like that one that doc made who's some Michael window because he school. He has a good mitt range game. I think Michael probably because Kawais heart plays above the rim, a little bit better than does, as far as tacking the ram. But quite lost a little bit of that. What is injury? But basketball wise. Yeah. Because he plays both the flow. Michael God, the best player dude things defensively. And the way coed does it. He knows his spots. He picks his spicy knows where he wants to go on office. And if you watched most guys plan is Lee now especially the superstars. They don't really have say had those type of games like wack wack kind of separates himself. Lebron has a game to me. I think you know, obviously James harden nest. Ow. But every night co I you know, he's gonna Hickey get mitt rains. He gets a free throw line ten times. And he's added three point shot to get forty percent. So now becomes really, really dangerous..

"It looked like it was your neck of the woods, I think that was up in the Hollywood hills or you briefly late. I did notice that. But. Giving the hanging out. Yeah, I'm have people come into your house in Harlem. You talk about where I go out. I drink. Back to Leonard. Al hall of Leonard's in the midst of a dominant playoff run where he's averaging over thirty one points per game. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers had high praise for the star calling coup is recent play the most like Jordan, that we've seen he'll have to continue this Ron to take down the warriors here. Steph curry on facing. Why? Score and. He plays at his own pace. Really? Well. And Chaddha speed China shown buddies. Or playing one on one. You know he just has compass bidding to a spot. So is one of those things where one on one defense. You gotta take that challenge. Whoever's gardening shot at force him in a tough shots understand. He's gonna make some of them, they'll get deflated the ball out go right back at them. But of course, a forty eight same thing. We do you know any grey score that we play against the usually is not one person that we're gonna leave on an island, but. Just gotta make it's off on same way that they tried to. No matter who we. All right. Antwon. How can the warrior slowdown qui- that has Saimaa? They have when they got Damon. Let it last series, what a tried them in a pick a kind kinda showed them, a double team and make Kawai become a willing passer. What's he is now in his career? He's definitely a willing passer, but you gotta get the bows has as much as possible, and not allow him to get one on one oportunities everytime down a flight. You gotta show him different coverages then you got multiple guys I just would have hurt not having Kevin Durant. Because now you know, the guy who seven feet quick feet that could probably got him and challenge at the rim. But you gotta Jake Odile who's used to garden guys like this with their skill this type of skill level. He'll be able to do a pretty good job on them. Then you gotta figure out who's going to be that next guy is going to be clay Thomas. And now you wouldn't take that chance getting in trouble Jordan, Bill. Do you trust the young guy? Joined Bill, the Gardo Affonso McKinney. This is first time in a final. So do you trust those young guys to come in and give minutes at that spot with Lennon with a guy? Get your thirty five forty points and then give him he's shown that obviously to the playoffs. So you got a double him. Limit his touches make him a willing passer. I don't think you're going to shut them down. But you had to take the BAAs as much as possible. Well, we have seen the warriors in they played against some other stars, Nikki mentioned it. You mentioned Damian Lillard what they did against him other stars faith James harden, defaced, and the biggest problem is that these guys ignited the oftens, let me tell you when Houston Houston had something. And the reason why Chris Paul was upset was when they put hard off the ball and they had to play him honest. And Chris Paul was orchestrating offense. They couldn't trap him. They couldn't do that because they were concerned about hard. So when you take the ball out of the point or your primary score is not the point guard it presents a number of problems defensively, so they would have to play uncharacteristically undisciplined, f they start double-teaming Kawai..

"Those young guys you got to get them back together. Get them back into Jim get them back focus because you don't know what free Icees going, this might be same age. You may have to be with ball and Ingram and Kouzmin. So you got to reestablish that too. So all that plays a part two. And this is the first time watching. I mean it's got the playoffs thirteen years eight thousand finals blame me, he regretted right now. Little bit wants to be out there. That's the best time of year Anton with that being said, there's nothing he can do now about the front office. The coaching staff any. But with free agency as a player, how do you think LeBron should approach, what his role is, and how he should go about, or what he should do in terms of recruiting other free agents in who will be on his roster along with should be very active in who they go out that they should give wishlist of Ghazi would like to play witness. Maybe that's a sheet of paper if they need him to sit in the room, he sit in the room, make the phone call July first to some guys to see they, they won the complaints about the what he's trying to do and what he's trying to get to I think he has to be active with this group. Fight Vogler what the school will Frank I like Frank his job as a coach. But I don't know how many free agencies going to influence to come to LA and that's not a knock going him. Jesse kit may have a better grip of that, and more. No because he's played with a lot of these players had a different relationship with him. So he may be able to convince a but you gotta excellent, Ron James to be on that couch being that office, which you, as you recruit guys that, that is the determining factor. If you. Now, the, the best choice would have been no dysfunction, and get the free agent and magic done. I'm not going to be here anymore, but that's out the window. Now, I would believe if LeBron had the choice between these two options, the Lakers are perfectly run organization, none of these headlines Tyler was hired as the head coach, and they don't get an all star or all this man, Frank Vogel, the coach tight Lou gets insulted. Linda Rambus is the shadow owner, but kyri comes and signs. I think that is the more preferable option. Now, the worst of all is you deal with all this ma'am and Nicole vucevic is the best you can do this summer. Then it's a disaster. Then to me, you start talking about real regret about how the twilight of his career is going to go champ. We're gonna actually get to the finals talk coming up. Stick around inqui- singlehandedly, take down the warriors. That's next on first thing I. Back here with Antoine Walker. And we are going viral the warriors and raptors are getting ready for the finals. But the rest of the league is already working on their summer plans. Jimmy Butler turned his attention to the next generation of stars. Take a look. My Gracie said she wanted to start playing basketball. So I got her coach Gracie Gracie, who's your basketball coach? The best coach ever. Jimmy Butler coaching little Gracie. L got Debbie NBA here. We come. Jimmy Butler, Mark Walberg longtime really close friends. Evidently from what I've read, I didn't know he was Jimmy Belarus in the coach and business. That's really cool. No, I think he was cog on while madman Chicago. And they became good friends at filming a movie Chicago, and Jimmy Bulloch windows set, and they became good friends. That's nice. Jimmy Butler really trying to repair his image and everything working with kids and every he's missed a couple of locker..

"What happens over the next sixty days about free agency over the next forty five days, really what whether or not from a basketball perspective lebrons going to spend the last years of his career competing for championships or competing for individual records. Like that's what it is. Like, if they he showed you last year he'll be twenty seven eight and nine in the fifty five games, he played, but if they strike out in free agency and the trade market know, Anthony Davis, Bradley Beal, that acquiring another all-star caliber player than what lebrons got to go for is once. The all time record scoring the most all NBA teams of anybody every tied that record this year with his third team appearance like those types of things, and that is not what the bronze signed up for now. Does he regret it because I believe the decision, go to the Lakers was not just about basketball. And people think it's about Space Jam in the movies it part of it's about his business. But the primary factor that wasn't basketball was his family, whereas wife and kids wanted to be if they weren't going to be an accurate. So I think if he had to do it all over again, he would still signed with the Lakers. And I think that is because he believes they are not going to strike out in free agency because of the, the gravity that he has on certain players in this league. But what will determine whether or not this leakers decision was on the court, a disastrous one is what they do in these next forty five days and the only thing, the Lakers have going for them these next forty five days to things one, they got lucky in the lottery, which had helped him in the trade market, and they have. Lebron James everything else has been working against them getting star play. There is no way LeBron James wherever he is sitting date is comfortable with the situation. Now everyone's got a family. Most people have a wife, most people have kids, but the opportunity, the Brian James had in era, where he is dominated basketball. And now because of this function of the Lakers to Golden State, and the Kevin Durant. They pulling away from LeBron. So let me tell you what LeBron doesn't won't forget the Lakers, he don't won't Steph to get five titles. He'll want K D end up getting four because for his overall legacy, and my man over here, Mr. all he's the greatest player ever, you can play for all the numbers, you want to. But in the NBA they have always kept who's the best players by championships. And you can't be saying you best player in the world and you guys and your sweet spot in your prime and they are taking championships. And they are collecting ring. So his legacy is at stake. And you can't tell me he's not regret. He could've stayed in Cleveland. Not to trust somebody. He didn't trust, Dan Gilbert, he didn't trust them. He could stay near the crew. He'll always be from Ohio. You can always buy house in LA man, I always get my family out to LA so him sitting us sitting here today, San LeBron wouldn't have some regrets. It's Memorial Day. He's having a cookout man that you think that was fine. All no absolute much. There's just real quick. See, I think don't you think there's a difference, ren- disappointed in what has happened and wish you'd made a different decision? I that's the distinction. I'm drawing. Of course this year, everything that's happened here has been he got hurt. They missed the playoffs. The coaching search was Zander, those things. No one assigned a two year deal with Cleveland. All right stayed in Cleveland. You can always move to LA. We act like he had to move to LA right now. And now when you're sitting out of the playoffs. Magic Johnson is own television talking about the organization. Your coach that you won't at Tai. They wouldn't even give him he couldn't even control his own staff. So Anthony Davis is no guarantee now with the Knicks heaven, the pick and other people want him, Katie potentially going to New York, quite potentially not even interested in your conversation. Those are those are gut wrenching thing to come to grips thinking, also, you got to look at from, from the big point of pitchers that LeBron is really right now don't have anybody on a team. He kinda lost those young guys so by him news..

"If you're not even going to get a shot, are you willing to do that? And if he's saying, yes, I'm willing to try to experience this championship atmosphere. I'm willing to sacrifice then I would put him in the game. But I don't believe he's got the shape. I don't believe he's the mental wherewithal to Bill be these sich. Because boogie is an offense a player you put him in offense of set man, you put him in a pick and roll, he is going to pop, and he is going to shoot that basketball. So I just don't know if they can carve out a role. I'm always about having more bodies. But typically, when you get a bogey you get someone else to come off the bench, you tell them, you got on the Simon, and they are not going to deviate from that assignment. I don't know. Boogie cousins is that guy and this is where through no one's fault. It hurts them that when he came back, they treated him like the old boogie cousins. They didn't say you're gonna come back like an all-star. Right. You're listen, when you come back from the pop to Killys you're going to start off coming off the bench play. Eight to ten minutes, then we're gonna know he played thirty one games for the warriors. If we take out the game where he got hurt a couple minutes in. He played at least twenty minutes and twenty seven of those games two of the four that he didn't. They won by forty plus points. Nobody played big minutes in twenty six of its thirty one games. He took at least ten shots. He he's going to be out. There. He's going to be shooting since his rookie season. Boogie cousins played in four hundred eighty six games he has started four hundred eighty three of them. He has no experience coming off the bench. He has no experience, not shooting when he's open, not having the offense run through him even Golden State. They were running sets through him. You don't get ten plus shots. He was averaging like eleven and a half shot to game in relatively speaking limited minutes. Just for a guy who is. Dealing emotionally with multiple injuries. And now a guy who had never played in the playoffs then played a game and a quarter of the playoffs before getting hurt. Hey NBA finals, and your opinion free agent. And we're going for three peat AMR gonna ask you to play a role. You've never played in your basketball life man. That is a big roll the dice. I understand why people say in the abstract. Can he be better for eight minutes than Andrew bogut will sure, theoretically onto Kay, he would be you'd slot him in, but as an actual human being it's a little bit tough. Is there an opportunity to experiment with this, though? Is there an opportunity when he's healthy to come back to? We're gonna put you in started the second quarter start at the fourth quarter maybe run some things through, you three four minutes stretch you can be on the floor. With clay creates them off and see what happens. Or do you think this is a scenario in a stage that this is not the time that you want to mess up the chemistry that Golden State has now created this is what I worry about. Are you taking Toronto's serious in the NBA finals experiment because we know kvamme looney? We know exactly what he is going to do. Because in those assignments because I'm giving Bogue at the same assignment. I'm giving boogie who do, I think can play out that to the t- who's going to stay on task? And I think the other guys are more apt to do it. I would love to sit here and say boogie I would love to have boogie get some experience gets the big summer for boogie like he's had a couple bad breaks like I'm pulling for him, but I can't be experiment, and I'm trying. I'm trying to three peat and boogie is I don't think he's all of a sudden, a guy who is just going to be emotionally zen. And what have we seen from the warriors since Katie went down? You're playing eleven guys by the eight minute Mark of the second quarter, you're playing everyone's getting run and boogie is going so boogie. Is he going to be okay with being the ninth guy being the guy that does get in? But it's for two and a half minutes because Jordan bells happy with that rule. Damian Jane Damian league start. He's like you.

I've been taking on a chain and watching the men play. Now the women are coming. I'm talking much trash at every bar Tribeca come in for you people out. Time now for us to go viral Lakers, GM rob Pelinka in the middle of a media, frenzy and to add fuel to the fire a recent report says Pelinka made up a bizarre story about Kobe Bryant and the late heath ledger, having dinner together. Listen to this. Just a really quick story. There was one time when Kobe who I worked with eighteen years, going back to play Madison Square Garden and he had just seen the dark Knight. Obviously, you've got saw that movie. And he's like, hey hook me up with dinner with heath ledger because he got so locked into that role. I want to know how he mentally went there. And so we had dinner with heathy talked about how he locks in for role in Kobe. Use some of that in his game against the Knicks mental preparation. Okay. So the problem here is when the dark Knight came out a great movie with a all time performance by heath ledger. Unfortunately, heath ledger had been dead for six months. So the idea that Koby could have seen the movie and then had dinner with heath ledger. Of course, is just impossible. And rob linkages lying for no reason. It's like I say to my kids, it's one thing to lie to get out of trouble. We've all done that some of us still do that. Like, I'll sell little white lie. Trying to get away with them, but to lie for no reason. Just. Where'd you go today? Oh, I went to CBS. No. You actually went to the grocery store, just for the lifespan here. I don't understand it. Why are you lying for no reason, rob Pelinka because you don't have no real stories to, to. Your mouth shot that the Lakers, vast hard. Right now. You're running the light. Don't you think the rock was sitting there like wait high? No one way. He's thinking was nothing but like it was a big story passed away.
