"Body tested all right well good because I know that there was a failed drug test for Mirman soaring WanNa Kouzmin fight switched to a no contest and if your you know who's manure mad because I mean you stop them so I don't even know what's going on on like it wasn't like Mayor Stop Kouzmin Switzer nuke so it kind of sucks if you're Kouzmin but just not the go booed again you need to make sure that your body so I'll say moving from that no contests right or or or basing it on years right if we just go back and so as soon as he signed automatic room he had a good fight and P._b._c. gave him that <hes> you know to to heavyweight fights as soon as he lost to to use <hes> but the opposition obviously got better or more recognizable overall matchroom for for instance <hes> Li- go Khalili's I only known because of Roach trained never seen never seen him. Try Never Messina fight until he got beat up by Hunter Martin Kohli I only known because A._J.. Spa Partner never seen him fight to. He got beat up by Hunter Houston. The knob you know our we already told you he's faced a few people in the past not many though not many he's only got like three names like that. The Hunter Charles and Joyce obviously lost Poulenc in the past but that's it everything else is like friends level contender but that's a good win. That's it's a two hundred and eighty pounds my two hundred and eighty pound fighter very so you know success or something like that but I've seen pictures next next hunter next to Brazil. He's small bro. His two is small but he's still doing well in the heavyweight division so interested now the Fabio Maldonado fi come on my man was just like come on. He looked worse than my garden. Literally literally my Garner's in better shape than this do. He was so fat fat and Bald Bald is hail like he wasn't a fighter he wasn't I mean don't get me wrong. Obviously got numerous fights and hasn't been stopped until hunter but they got him at the right time he I mean his weight was insane. It was huge he was to forty but he looked so much. It's bigger than that especially you know for his height because he's like <hes> whereas this highway thirty nine years old they don't even have is high here. This is bullshit really know hi. How does not have your height? That's strange would yeah but he's still look fat to forty looking fat like think about it. Dylan White was to fifty nine. He looked out of shape. Knock fat like forty to forty to fifty for heavyweight. You Ain't supposed to be out. You Ain't supposed to be fucking a blubber ball like this do Maldonado need to get check but whatever he's Brazilian and Astor's Day at a month so I guess it can't always fall on the twenty fourth but that's damn near close to Thanksgiving as an American icon I I commend him for being able to. I put up with a fight camp through one of the fattest holidays of American history absolutely turn to the door Thanksgiving but you gotta pick up the shields had the same thing on says she was trying to doing thanksgiving. She was like I need that that played a partner on San Oughta fighters who fight in November got some got some different things about him because I will be eating my Yemen so he's ranked thirty nine on box wreck in the world and that's not too far off Leyden names for him to mix it up with you know it's shocking. That hunter is thirty nine on box where it can Lucas Brown thirty eight and that's that's how you know the boxer you gotta be careful because they go with the popularity of the.

"kouzmin" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Does that look like LeBron anybody in our audience know at the end of that game going straight at Mariel his own having no speed and no power. Does that look right to you know, there's a lot of lottery picks on that team in the assumption was at the very least with this plan the way that turned out where it was LeBron these young lottery picks that he could at least turn them into viable assets that you can go out and get a next level. Star. Brandon Ingram has really taken that next step Coco's Muslim proved. What are they have that has value? Stan you could speak to the Kouzmin Ingram. Both have value right at draft pick up here. Look Ingraham was playing great after the all star break until the injury. He looked like a totally different player aggressive offensively getting to the free throw line shooting the ball, then and only play. Well when LeBron was out. He didn't play well with LeBron. Well, he did win. Lebron? I came back. Yeah. He had some big inning amazing game against the bucks. You guys. You also have a player Anthony Davis who is basically said he wants to be an LA doesn't wanna play for the pelicans anymore. And eventually the pelicans are gonna have to take something from somebody. And I think that's enough. I think what the Lakers have is enough. Well enough is all relative to what else they can get. There's no way who's an Ingram is the best offer for Anthony Davis. There's simply no way that I will believe what if it's Lonzo ball who's proven to be pretty valuable. What if it's you know, this year's first round pick one? Jason tatum. Jalen Brown and a a pick. Do that not knowing if get assigned long term, I don't know in assuming that those will be the only two teams involved. I think is faulty to we've seen Oklahoma City. Take a chance with the guy. No guarantee of resigning we've seen you know, Miami's going to try that game. I don't think they have the piece they don't have the pieces. I be shocked if they have any package they could put together that would entice New Orleans, but, but of course, everybody's going to try to get involved. But there will be some other teams. I think there's a possibility. It all depends on what New Orleans wants to do. But I think you'll see virtually everybody give it a shot..

"And the irony was Kouzmin really didn't shoot it. Very well. And he's the guy who usually just lights up for LeBron. He wants to. Yes. The Cavs -olutely. Right. So it's still highly possible. Again, LA times report yesterday that the Lakers have offered as I said from the start what they should offer Lonzo and Kouzmin Brandon Ingram and your man's zoo. Botts in a first rounder just they put it right on the table for the pelicans in the pelicans, are fools if they don't take that they should take it and run with it right now. Because they're not going to get a better offer simply because Rich Paul has made it crystal clear to Celtics or Knicks whomever else that there is no way that Anthony Davis is going to sign long-term with Boston or New York where he's rental probably rental property with. No hope of ownership. Just so, you know, you're going to be able to live here. But I'm never selling corral. You that is correct. So why wouldn't the pelicans just swallow the pride? That's now bubbled to the surface and just say that you mentioned pride. Anthony Davis is trying to hold us up. That's make us trade him to where he wants to. And we're of said, even though they told us this summer. Yup. We will not sign the extension and we wanted to move on. And where we wanted to move onto. Yep. So that would be a great deal for the pelicans. And I gotta tell you still got drew holiday, and you still got Jewish Randall miratec, you put those four kids in the middle of that maybe not this year. But next year in the next they would become a contender. They would be that'd be a good basketball team. Yes. When LeBron was better basketball team with AD. Well, asked about eighty and he said, I'm not gonna talk about it. It's just fantasy basketball. We don't talk about stuff like this. They always trying to get it for. Tampered. Everybody got something to say about LeBron. So he's right. He's not talking about AD. But we know what about to happen. We know somebody who's been tampering on this show for three months. My right. Why don't you get fined what about what about doing tampering? You ask me a question. I this would be a great trade for the Lakers. I've just got this guy. Just a guy. No messy. So LeBron's return. Yesterday. Wasn't the only big news. The Knicks traded Christopher singers and three other players to the Mavericks for a package. Dennis Smith junior. Deandre Jordan reports say for singers question the direction of the team the two sides met yesterday. And then the next felt that he wanted out of New York. This is the marquee name in the deal, but he's been out all season after tearing his last year canon who got the better end of this trait. Will we're going to have to wait to the summer of twenty nineteen before we find out because what the next year by getting Chris upper Saint goes and getting Hardaway and Courtney Lee out of there, they created over seventy million dollars cap space. Now, if you laying K D, you laying carry or you get a Kawai clearly they wanted to deal. There's no question about that. And then you think if they can land the number one draft pick, maybe. Swing that. And says, okay. Pelicans. What about this for a D? Now, you really in the money. But for me, if become a bluntly clear that present didn't want to be there, skipped his brother. And from what I'm hearing that his brother and Kristoff was making it very difficult about what they wanted what they weren't going to do and what they were going to do. So I thought the Knicks was was absolutely right to move on. Because you're not I about do you simply three and you coming off an injury..

"To get this y'all get this man about my house. So if you add any of Lonzo Kouzmin, Brandon Ingram your man's zoo. Botts whatever mix and match with those hard. I still think there are enough pieces in place with the pelicans as we saw some last night, and again, no Jewish ran or no miratec that they can be credible. They can be a contender. They can be a playoff team with those kids because they're going to get good. Do you think is going to have to be things go team the team or they're going to have to and there's been reports, and I'm just throwing out rampant speculation. But Lonzo to Phoenix. I still say Lonzo is the key piece here. That's just again, I'm a much bigger fan than you are because I think he's going to be a star. So he's the one who's going to make it all go. But it might go to thirteen to go back to New Orleans to come to LA because you know. True holiday had his best season playing alongside Rondo he did. And I think he's got a lot of to in him where you're just fine with him playing them. Yeah. Ars to guard exempt for Lonzo ball. Yes. He's about as pure. All right. We ain't got no choice. Well, there you go. So I think it's gonna get done. I think they're negotiating as we speak and the clock is ticking toward a week from tomorrow at three told you July. To get a deal. Now report car, you know, what you're talking about. As we go get Katya AD, but we get the. If you haven't seen it. You should prefer D but goal. Go ahead. Maybe that six foot on a quantum? I'll take seven foot monster myself. I'll take you realize Kevin Durant is taller than Anthony Davies, he is he's much longer than we might get Katie Razi AD grown. What you come celebrating? What do you? I'm not going to be happy. You'll be the Bri got everything if he don't win it. Now, we'll eat have the best player on the planet. Is he already AD? We can't predict far ahead. Patriots while they're just a few days away from playing in their third straight Super Bowl. But it wasn't easy. Getting there Tom Brady and the patriots were the number two seed, but they still lost five games in the regular season. Patriots. Haven't won a Super Bowl while also losing five games since the two thousand one season. Which was also the start of the Brady Bella check dynasty. So skip Zet at many times that this will be Brady's greatest accommodation. If he wins the super deal with this team, Shannon. Do you agree with skip on that one? Disagree with skip shocking. No is not. They were the pre season favorites to win Super Bowl Gifty three for me. His greatest accomplishment. Skip.

"The big is the part of the reason going back six months, so many people like Ireland, for example, would look at Kouzmin say he's got kind of the dog. He's got the desire to be great. We played talking because you know, kouzmines, sells it it ways. That Ingram doesn't Ingram wants desperately to be an all star to the point that I think he's trying too hard. Like you saw you go back that Minnesota game. He's five of sixteen from the floor constantly tried to just banging his head trying to get to the rim and finish his trying too hard to be great. Hey, a Mace. I get some. I'm disabled I do have something to say actually about and it is about Kouzmin one of the things that people overlook is that since the Lakers are such are payable free throw shooters cow Kouzmin over the last thirty days, or whatever it is is above eighty percent in shooting free throws. So I think that's really helped contribute to the fact that because he's more confident getting going to the lot going to the basket. So because he can hit his free throws down which Brandon Ingram is obviously struggling and a lot of the a lot of the players on. This team are struggling at the line MMA being able to get to the free throw line and other ways improved his game. Yes, he's got to get there. More those the other. But that was also part of Christmas Promessi for a good score. He didn't get to the line that much and like, Jordan Clarkson was the same way. There was a limited basket as much as Broncos Ingram goes does it because he he's more confident outside shooter took ten three pointers last night five of them. And I you what separates good scores from great scores. Is the seven or eight free throws that the great scores shoot every game. So that harden on a night where he shoots thirty seven percent. Still puts up forty two points because he went to the line nineteen times. Yeah. Like stuff like that. Clarkson never got the hang of that down and Kuzina is getting better in that regard, the two highest volume free the free throw shooters on the team or still LeBron Ingram yet. If Kouzmouk gets into that area shooting four or five six game. You know, forget about it. He's absolutely your number to score night in and night out. Okay. Let's pivot off this. So Vegas has released the odds, and when I say Vegas, I should say Caesars has released the wind totals for every major league baseball team this year. Take a shot. And how many wins Vegas thinks the dodgers will have. I'm gonna say nine thirty five ninety one. Ninety five on the no. John's the Astros ninety seven point five is the over under number the Yankees ninety six point five the Red Sox ninety five point five and the dodgers at ninety five. No other National League team with over ninety. The cubs are at eighty nine that would be the next closest the Milwaukee Brewers aren't up there with ios money Grondahl behind the plate. Now, we should mention that has mighty grigol signed a one year eighteen point two five million dollar contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. That's after he turned down a seven point seventeen point nine qualifying offer from the dodgers and a four year contract worth about six million dollars with the New York Mets. So who won that? The brewers are grown doll. Oh, he's betting on himself. Yeah. Well, the brewers want it, right? It's a cheap thing for him. They they got a steal out of that. Right..

"kouzmin" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Anything. So. Hopefully, you hope it's not a it's not a long get back on the floor. All right. So we go from LeBron James explaining about his injury in front of his locker afterwards to hearing from the gentleman who called this one on ESPN radio marquess, John berry. The Lakers jumped out to a big lead. Lebron James got injured that lead was almost gone and the Lakers JP score thirty six fourth quarter points on the road Christmas day taken it to Golden State. Well, I I think that can show a lot of different things. I mean, great response by all these guys no doubt about it. But when you start a game on the road, and you're the aggressor you give yourself a belief, and you give yourself a chance remember that first quarter. It was dominated by the Lakers daily by eight after that or seven after that, then they go on to take a fifteen point lead at the half. And so there's a belief system when your best player goes down. They had a big leap they relinquish most of it. And then they answered the bell. Because Rajon Rondo is a veteran player. He's been through everything you can be through go through in this. League. And he responded, and they got a bunch of other great contribution. So I thought pope was terrific. Josh Hart was terrific. Kouzmin was good about the zoo bots, the third center on this team is rarely use all season long. He's had three straight games where he's been terrific. It's a Luke Walton he he's got to be really proud of this group. And you know, let's hope for everyone certainly the Laker fans and the Laker players and organization that LeBron James is out for a while. But if he is I do believe this team can can write to ship, and they could still play quality basketball is they showed here in the second half. He talks about all the Lakers who stepped up and if you look at the warriors starters off nights for Steph curry struggles on Christmas again. Kevin Durant who had a three for fifteen and Klay. Thompson struggled on many ends of the floor tonight. Man. I used to have seven for Klay Thompson, just five points. The words we had the stat twenty one and three when they make eleven or more threes. How many threes they make tonight nine? Wow. Get it done in the Lakers hit thirteen of their three pointers and go on to win it by a final score of one twenty seven to one zero one.
"kouzmin" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Because we got a bunch of stuff to do. It's obviously a big football day. Lonzo ball Brandon Ingram. So when I look at the Lakers. It's lebron. I think coups must been established as the two he will be the three eventually when they get somebody else. But I would move everybody else right now. Like I've seen enough of Lonzo. I'd like him. But he's doing consistent. I've seen enough of Brandon Ingram I like him. But I think he'll never be an elite shooter three years in the league. He's still not would you move. Would you move even Kouzmin to you is LeBron and you try? Anybody? If I told you Lonzo would you move him. Yes ingram. Would you move him? No. You wouldn't move him. No coups. Would you move him? But sure not. So you think those guys you're keeping? You know, what I would definitely keep cooling. Honestly think Lonzo is the point guard for the future there. I think he can build with a Brown. I think LeBron help him grow and become a great point guard. If anybody are we get rid of angry about before we let you go. You have a connection with Kevin Durant. You talk a lot in text a lot. And I love Durant. But he tend to think if you criticize him you hate him. I actually like him. I think he's hiding is the second best player in the league. Have you talked to him the last couple of days? I mean, I it's not it's not that it just he feels like why this when everybody's speaking about their best players. Why's it wrong? If LeBron's not on the list like you have the right to have your own favorite players. But when people speak about their big, great if ever players and the bronze not on that list. They feel like he's autumn actually hating, and that's so far from true. So he doesn't hate. Lebron offset admits house we have many conversations about LeBron. He speaks highly. I'm I heard him say one bad thing about what he thinks he's better than LeBron. He should who are you better than in the NBA? Gimme a guy that you think you're better than that. It'll be a hall of Famer. Ooh. Ray allen. On definitely Ray Allen, you're better than male and railing going they say shoot the ball is manage nobly. I definitely think I was betting Genova. Oh, definitely. I went to a lot of teams. If I stayed in that system in San Antonio, people would have been talking to you. But I went to a lot even place and put up twenty points. Blake griffin. No way as that's a whole different animal. I'm not better than Blake. Now. Blake just does a lot of stuff. Now. I don't know I can compete with anybody. But I'm being honest with you Blake. No, I'm not bad about fair. Anybody I wants to one more out there. There's gonna be a headline. And sometimes I was definitely definitely not Tracy Tracy McGrady what he'd been close, but I competed with all those guys and I had good nights. I guess every guy you name great night's give me one Vince Carter. I think as a player. Yes. As legacy my legs. And I didn't closest he's been put he's sixty now playing but I'm saying he's one of the probably the best dunk of all time. Yeah. Yeah. I think I don't have none of those. None of accolades, but I had the best accolade. Dwayne Wade to pocket NBA. That's my that's my that's my favorite. I'm to pocket NBA your to pong. Yup. Which means. Milo. All right. That's good. That's pretty good that I don't know. All star game. But I'm respected by my peers. So I take that any day..
"kouzmin" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Beal, at least, Gordon this piece on railings ESPN friend of the show and ellings today is two of the following three. Lonzo ball, Brandon Ingram McConnell Kouzmin at some point. And I don't know for there yet. But at some point the Lakers, this this young core is going to be the less valuable than it is right now if it doesn't start to have some fruit on you could you could keep saying, hey, we got the young core. We don't wanna flip them for this. But at some you might wanna sell why the stock price is still relatively I every now. And then when I started thinking the way you think try to You know, you know. Brandon Ingram has a performance or like a series of plays in which I'm looking go. I wanna go yet. I need to see what that is see what that's going to become it is season three, and you should be asking yourself that questioning more typically, but the NBA is different than NFL in the NFL. You don't have seventeen eighteen year old guys. So by gear three you have some sort of definition, they're older in the NFL. So by year three season three they should be fully formed when you look in the Lakers roster. The young guys who make the most sense are the guys who are season, Josh heart Karakouz, MMA more polish because they're older we gotta allow for Brandon Ingram as well. As ball to see if they are going to get better with age as well. And when I look at this route that the wizards have just gotta have is going to the team either Beal's, the one piece that's one piece if we could get porter but his contract dick too. Yeah. But if you go out, and you get Bill stops you from getting some things. In the future potential. You know, there's a couple of free agents out there in there's a tray possibility that's out there in Toronto. So you eat up their cap space that you would have next year to get those guys is Bill guys going to get you over the hump. Okay. Let's say for instance, two years from now you could get you could figure out how to get Davis, and you could add Bill LeBron Davis. And now all of a sudden, you you say, okay, that's our plan. If that's something that's in the back door works didn't. Yes. But if you're if you're saying that you rather have Bill and move one of the two to three pieces two of the three to pick him up. I would say, no, let's sit tight unless you already know you can't side some of the guys. Yeah. If you if you have a feeling that that's not gonna happen to maybe. But here's here's the rub. I think. The idea that Brandon Ingram is going to turn into some lesser version of Kevin Durant is still a possibility. There's also positive. Yeah. But there's also a stronger possibility that he's going to be more. Jeff green view, you could still sell something on the, hey, you're gonna get the next Kevin Durant or something similar to it. And not necessarily next. Jeff green, Lonzo ball. You can still say, hey, look, this is Jason Kidd. It's just not ready yet. Or you could be looking at Ricky Rubio again, you know, it's was takes longer which takes longer. But it's so you at some point you're not selling the next Jason Kidd, you're selling the current Ricky Rubio and you're not selling the next. Kevin Durant you're selling than Jeff green. And the longer we go and the longer that they continue to be inconsistent the longer that they continue to have these ups and downs in lack aggression and just kind of fade in and out of games. The more you're getting Rubio in green and not Durant and kid, and you're not gonna be able to move them for a guy like Bill, right? But that's all. So the question of whether or not you can still win with Jeff green. Will you still win with someone who someone consistent like Lamar Odom was inconsistent? You know, he was someone who had a tremendous amount of talent and skill set. Arguably the most talented guy in that draft. But he didn't always bring it every night. But you still were able to find a way to win even in a Mississippi consistency..
"kouzmin" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"I mean, we talked about the lineups and thanks for the call as we talked about the lineup. The best lineup for the Lakers right now as far as Boca minutes, like a group that's actually played together. A ton is clearly LeBron McGee, Lonzo Kouzmin heart. That's been the most successful lineup. Their offense of rating has been good their defensive rating has been pretty tight. So and I think that could actually even get better. If you include Tyson Chandler in that particular mix instead of Djamil, but some of these lineups for the Lakers have not worked out. So well. Like. Who? Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the like, there's the one lineup that they throw out there occasionally is LeBron Rondo Ingram, Kouzmin heart. I'm just not feeling that. I don't think the offense is as good and the defense has been pretty atrocious with that group. So Alex and Venezuela. I'm alex. Hey, what about you know? We don't talk enough. What about nut like smaller moves like just getting guaranteed floorspace? There's like Korver. You know, I think that's coming. I think the buyout market Alex is is going to you know, really started right with Tyson Chandler. But normally that thing gets cooking. You know after the turn of the calendar. And I think you're gonna see some of that for sure I don't think there's any doubt about that Franken south-central what up Frank. What's the guy? How you doing? But listening to you all night long, you, sir. Yeah. Hey, first off I'm gonna Laker fan since that, they did it for Wilt Chamberlain. I'm sixty four years old. Okay. Wow. You sound a lot younger than sixty four men. Well, the thing is I thought when they brought in these five veterans I thought that the point was that they were gonna play some defense I've been solely disciplined disappointed in their defensive effort. They don't have. But the other night I saw for the first time guys fighting through screens trying to guard a man instead of the switching thing, which has gotten the Lakers in major trouble. The other thing is you don't win. The Lakers have a bad history by bringing in three point shooters. And I don't need to say Tracy Murray Glen Rice all guys brought in right cetera cetera yet. So we don't need three point shooters. We need guys that play defense keep the other team from scoring. Yeah. No. But I mean when the last caller was saying about like cow corner, you get him in the violent Mark. I mean Kyle Korver playing fifteen minutes a night, like he's not necessarily the guy that you relying upon you know, the guys you mentioned, particularly Glenn. I mean, he was supposed to be part of a big three at that point, which is a little different. But look, I just believe that this team, MS. Out on an opportunity. Okay. They they felt like they could get Paul George, and they didn't have to trade for him. And then he fell in love Russell Westbrook and Oklahoma City, and they didn't feel like they needed to trade for Kawhi Leonard because they felt like get him a free agency. And again, these are gambles Frank. So I just hope for their sake that one of these gambles pays off because if not you may be looking back in like, okay, you saved thirty eight million dollars or thirty nine million dollars for one of these big fish, and you may not be able to land any of them. So that won't be looked upon. Finally, if that's indeed the case. Yeah. I agree with that Paul George, but I I never really wanted fall in the first place. He flaky he's inconsistent and doesn't play depot. No. Hey, I was told that you that you live near Keyshawn in highschool.

Could Lebron James win an Oscar before he wins a championship with the Lakers?
"Or may not win a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers. How 'bout this? I'll say LeBron James with an Oscar before he was a championship. That's how well it's production company is doing I'm sorry. I don't think my earpiece is working what you said. Would you say as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers and in the future? Lebron James has a better chance to win an Oscar than an NBA championship. Okay. That is easily one of the weirdest thing you've ever said in this program. We've been doing this for eight years movie, LeBron James and the Lakers had an actual basketball game last night against the match and they were cruising to an easy victory in the match had a furious comeback. The dodgers with the weird left floater there. And for no reason. Westie Matthews fouls. Lebron James with two seconds left in a tiger. That made absolutely no sense. Lebron missed the first made the second and the Lakers snuck off with a win. This was a must win game for the Lakers. Jalen rose. They can ride this momentum and get a couple of wins moving forward. They play the blazers next. Really bad to see decision by veteran in Matthew's right there. But Kouzmin went to the line and may one or two late in the bra also made one or two late. This is why Lakers in particular have struggled in games decide about five points or less and also weren't able to attain that lead that they were able to secure initially because while they're terrific and getting fast-break points, and they're transitioning those into points in the pain a lot of those. They're not able to get stops in particular when they need to. So is great to get that home with. But I'm pretty sure as a coaching staff in the Bron James in particular. They left that game talking about all of the

"He represents value at this point with his contract. He's on a rookie deal, right. I think that in itself he's gonna put up similar type road. I think this is also. As good as Paul George is going to be we what he is. He's very good. Oh, wait. A second Ingram could eclipse him. Yeah, that's why I think that it would be, you know, I think in two years will look at Ingraham and go Ingram at twenty two is even better than politics. Paul, George peak Georgia's Paul, George speak, right. This is this is where he is going to be. I don't think we know where Brandon Ingram, you know it's, it's the sending argument, right? Yeah, he's ascending. It's just hard to say how high I thought, you know, I've said for the last couple years. I think he's the one guy. I look at young guy in this Lakers core and say, that's, that's going to be an all star. So there's this notion right that the Lakers need to add guys in free agency, and I do believe they need to add one got in free agency. I don't think they need more than that because of the ascension. I think in the trajectory, Brandon Ingram, Sean because I think guys like Kouzmin heart are going to be unbelievable role players for LeBron because they're so smart and mature ready well. And think about this that last year, if one of those guys got hot Ingram or coups MMA or Lonzo or hard or any of them, the other teams, best defensive player would simply lock them up correct. Now that other teams best defensive player. Has to guard LeBron you're not going to leave LeBron to take Kouzmin or Ingram, right? Because you can't LeBron's too good. So now they're going to be going up against second and third best. Defenders came. So they've got a real opportunity here. All right. So fry went on to say, I don't know if they talking about the Lakers other than LeBron I don't know if they truly understand what it's like to play with him because there is no room for mistakes. Actually, the best part was before that, here's the quote 'cause we did it on the jump today. He says, there's who you expect to be and then who you are when you play with the brand, it's two different things. And then he went on to say that what you said, I don't really understand what it's like because there's no room for mistakes..

"And he has a belief in himself. That's it's almost like the first time we scored thirty points. He's like, I expected Lewis. I what? Oh, he nobody expecting it. I liked the. I liked that confidence with Kuzina because I don't think it's blind arrogance. And you know, you see some young players who got that type of confidence, but they also you can tell think they've already made it and Kouzmin works, and I don't think who's must satisfy. You don't get the type and I'm sure you've noticed this. Yeah, you don't get the type of footwork that Kuzina has at that young of an age if you're not willing to work. No. Like coz kouzmines footwork for kid of his inexperience is exceptional. And that's me. That's me in and of itself speaks to both the work ethic, but a lack of satisfaction that you taking yourself, he's competent. He's he's confident is hell if but I don't think he's arrogant away yet. That's distressing. That's going. If you watch cow kouzmines shoot, he has a very quick release and that comes from hours and hours in the. Jim of catching the ball up and repetitive shoot rebound repeat shoot rebound repeat over and over and over again and for a guy. That's six eight that can catch the ball high knocked down in early three. His value is off the chain. That's like new NBA. Like if I had to compose a guy that you get late in the first round, there wasn't a better draft pick, and we've even flirted with the idea of redrafting and he's a top five pick in this draft and this is a loaded draught that goes on for years to come. Yeah. I mean, it's a really good draft class in the Lakers did extremely well at the bottom of the draft with Kyle Kouzmin, Josh harden, that's what about Lonzo. Now I said at the bottom specifically, what about Lonzo did they do well there I think they did well with Lonzo. It remains to be seen is right now when you speak like that. I think they did well with Lonzo lanes to be seen just how well his season season had a lot of positives and also had some things to be concerned about coming up Terrel Owens. Lot of attention paid this weekend to him, not being at canton in the speech that he gave in Chattanooga. The Randy moss did something during his induction that didn't get as much attention, but I thought was really, really remarkable. We'll talk about that. Talk about that coming up in LA. So you. So you folks. Avenues on ESPN LA, Andy, Kim Manetzky, Ryan holidays, and over the weekend the there was the NFL hall of fame induction yet some names like Ray Lewis and Brian Dawkins in attendance, Brian Urlacher. You also had Tarallo ans making headlines for skipping the induction altogether. He was upset about the fact that he was not included as a I bow hall of Famer, and then seeing the lack of standards being applied to in his mind, Randy moss and Ray Lewis who had some off the field issues themselves, but managed to be I bow hall of famers thought it was inconsistent. So he ended up doing his thing in Chattanooga, broken system, broken system and Tarallo in society that he wanted to raise attention towards that broken system in the inconsistencies. But Randy moss did something during his induction that I thought was really cool and didn't get a lot of attention. He wore a custom made tie and on this tie had the names of three. Thirteen black men and women who had been killed by the police over the last several years in what have been very controversial shootings or yeah, controversial situations. The names include Tamir rice, Eric garner Freddie grace, Andrew bland Alden. Sterling, Trayvon, Martin and Randy moss explained why he decided to wear the names on this time..
