Food Discoveries from the Baltics
"Food of the Baltic Nation Stone Latvia and Lithuania unknown for many. But the three small countries all have their interesting interesting distinctive culinary culture. So it's about time to get a cookbook. That showcases all discoveries to be made in the region by the North East Coast the Baltic Sea Australian Food and travel for soccer for and shift Simond but judd has written the book called Baltic New and old recipes and he talked talk about it to Monaco's fed onto our Gestapo check I am. I've always been very interested in foreign cuisines and I visited Latvia. Think is two thousand eight two thousand thousand nine and there was something that I found incredibly interesting seeing a buffet of these dishes. I had no idea about and it prompted. Make no more about them and took some notes. And then since living in Sweden visited there numerous occasions and just started to look a little closer and cursor each time and I started compile research and realized there's not many recipes from these countries not documented so well anywhere anywhere so I started to have my little collection of recipes and spoke to my publisher about the idea and and they they liked it and we went for and his interest. Does he live in Sweden. Because I'm curious as I said I don't know much about the Kuzina from those countries now. I know a little bit because I've read your book but is it influenced by Scandinavian cuisine or Germany. Or do they really have their own kind of ingredients and and what what what. What kind of the influence is there? Yeah I would say it's a very interesting mix of the places you just mentioned this. Certainly Nordic touches and the Soviet period had an influence on the cuisine and also Prior to that there was a German influence like recipes. Going way back seem to have more of a German influence. It's it's really the quad mix and then Lithuania. More southern and just above Poland also has little Polish influence. It's really a melting pot of what's around it and I. I think it has some dishes that that are quite unique in that we see in the neighboring countries and I think that has a lot to do with this period of Soviet rule where it almost time stood still and there was a limited pantry and the the amount of ingredients against was obviously not plentiful sir so things would develop that made use of certain products and there awesome unique things and I was certainly taken by drinks desserts. They seem to be very interesting as a foreigner. Because there's things in there that the win familiar things he's like kvass which is also rushing. Meade is very popular being wine. Made from honey. And that's a very strong was strongly admired in Lithuania. I mean talking about honey. There's quite a lot of recipes. We we've hunting. There's one that I mean it's quite simple but I I would never imagine the combination of those two which is basically cucumbers enhance. Have you tried. I would love to try now. Yeah fantastic he have that watery Christmas and then and sweetness of the honey in my research I spoke to obviously shifts producers growers stallholders. Everyone and I had a series of questions and one of them was Naima dish reminds you of your childhood and for many Lithuanians that would be the answer. I remember remember start a summer in the fifth cucumbers and corresponding is. He's honey and so they would sit in the garden. Have honey on cucumbers compass and I got to try that when I was there and and it was a special occasion was really nice visiting some bee keepers and yeah it was delicious and I love those kind kind of simple kind of childhood dishes as well. I mean there's another one that caught my eye because it does look delicious which I think the PG or you're I g it just it just looks so simple. It's kind of some sort of pastry tomatoes inside and that right there like a moon shaped crescent dorm inside they just simply bacon and onion and It's a latvian recipe. That's made around midsummer traditionally but it's eaten all year round. I think but yes. Every sour cream's creams very simple very delicious. Freeze well so it's a nice recipe. Yeah and we're talking here about three countries. Tony Lot fairly twain. You know the books of all all of those countries but what are the main differences or even similarities. Between those three I think they share a similar past and background. Obviously these small differences between them. It's hard to generalize but two of them share similar language. That being this Indo European and then a steiner in the north shares a similar language to Finland. So there's a difference there obviously Estonia. I feel has a little more Nordic influence. That's probably just geographic location. Lithuania further south is Catholic and Latvia and stone. Your Loser Lutheran say this. Some small differences there and let beer is twenty five percent. Russian population stayed after the Soviet time and Lithuania. Lithuania also has little Jewish influence. I'm not sure about it certainly in the food but as the population. I'm not sure today. But that's things as I picked up on him my in my travels and I have to say you being photographer. Of course the book is is just incredible. Pictures are really really beautiful. You know sometimes times you. Of course the recipes are here with beautiful images. But sometimes you think you're looking at you know like a nice story on travel magazines as well or so. He makes me want one to visit those countries way. Yeah that was the idea. I really want to entice people to the region and and for them to be more interested. You there's three very small countries and for some they. They might have never heard of them but interestingly Lithuania was a superpower at one stage it was I think the second largest empire in in Europe and they just have a very interesting history and and a good future ahead. Yeah I think if you could choose you know. Perhaps a couple of your favorite recipes as I said I I want to try the cucumber and honey and also there's beautiful fish we've a beetroot source and page seventy. I was quite tempted but that one is actually was tempted by many of the recipes but I wonder if you have any favorites. Yeah for me I I love I think if you look at seasonally. I love the chill beet root soup. I'm not sure if you saw that striking pink color and it's incredibly incredibly refreshing in summer. It's very much like a good spot show in a way and I think it's a dish that really typifies the region. It's it's got the dairy element which is very strong part of the cuisine and there's a sweetness from the beats and uses horseradish which is very typical ingredient. So I think that for me is is one of the favorites but it's very much a some addition winter. I there's one recipe love which is the hot from Latvia from a coastal town where it's simply smoked cod with cream in potatoes so the quite rich but it's very simple when delicious breath and someone else talking to stolen friend and the only thing he said he felt with frustration to the people you know. Let's say you're in the UK or in other countries. Imagine Baltica has been kind of boring or storage. There's a kind of a PR problem there. But do you think it's changing. I mean you just released. This book. Defamed perhaps could be one of a nice two two thousand twenty trend when it comes to food. The rise of the bout accusing I think certainly the chefs in the Baltic countries. They're excited they're motivated Divided the inspired by what they've seen the Nordic countries do recently and I think more than anything we as those that are cooking at home we have changed our taste in people. Love the pickle things now you know this. This movement of this northern European cuisine is a little more every day than it was say ten years ago after the success of the dining chefs etc and those sort of pickle dishes smoke dishes. which is I think? The pallets of general public those that are interested in food has changed and that changed brings them close to what the Baltic countries cooking so. I think there's recipes in there that people will appreciate you

"But I just want to find out. What's happened when they are on the floor this year? And it's obviously played a lot of minutes over a thousand minutes. It's actually been a negative minus one point seven, regardless of the other three guys on the floor. It's just an odd fit. Now, obviously LeBron Kuzina together on the floor have been really good. And now, it's almost like figure out, you know, we talk about this a lot stars and role players and kind of how it all fits together. And I'm not so sure that LeBron Kuzina and Ingram who probably all our best natch. Actually at small forward. If you were doing a actual position thing. I'm not sure it works. All that. What what doesn't work all that? Well together as a unit and they've obviously had flashes. When when Ingram was out coups Ma really exploded. And I think there's something to be said of just how it all fits together. Which is something that Luke Walton struggled with throughout this year. I mean, listen, I watched them last night. And there's no way that team's going sixteen and six and their last twenty two games. No way. I think with this team. I it's a number of different factors. It's partially. What you're saying? It's also the fact that their best defender Lonzo ball is out. And I think his energy on the defensive end of the floor and his versatility, you know, the playmaking plays. He makes them that offensive into the floor jumping passing lanes deflecting balls. All that chaos. He creates on that end helps not only energize his team. But it generates fast-break opportunities for all I been completely on this. I do 'cause 'cause you. you mean, you see last night didn't even start a point guard. It's James Bullock. The LeBron Ingram as well. Handling the ball. A lot more Anglo Ingram has been really good. He's over time. Some of in this touches on your point about the fit whether his last season or this season. Some of his best stints are when he's not with Lonzo ball last year his best the season was while LeBron Lonzo was out for eleven games this season it started. When LeBron an Lonzo were out. And now it's still continued as LeBron has returned Ingram. And this is why I think when it comes to the trade conversation with with Anthony Davis or whoever else Ingram has his concerns a three point shooter. But the progress he has made every single season. I I wrote this last summer during the Colli stuff. I still think you put him in a new situation where he has the ball in his hands more. He's going to be dropping like twenty two points, you know, five or six rebounds, five or six assists. I re I think he's capable of that putting the ball in his hands more often and letting him run more pick and roll. I think would the situation he doesn't learn how to play better off ball spot up shooting and cutting and screening and things like that. But his ultimate destiny is a player. I think is that is as that playmaking forward. And we're seeing that right now with him. And and really it's a shame for a Lakers fan watching the game. More like Ingram playing the best ball his life. But everything else is at its worst right now when they're really getting what they needed from that second guy entering the season that they didn't get early on that they are getting now when things are going sour the other thing that ran through my mind last night as I was watching it is and we will see what the summer holds. But there was a moment when I was watching Ingram. Well, I'm still very high on. And I know as are you who still very young? But I'm watching Ingram watching coups. Ma obviously they are without Lonzo which hurts them, and then heart or whoever else may be zoo, botch could have been included. And you're talking about two first round picks like that whole reported deal. And there was a moment where I was watching last night. And I was like things are going very badly for this team. They may miss the playoffs. But I'm not so sure that the pelicans won't look back and regret that now. Maybe that deal if they wanted that deal that deal will just be there again during the summer..

"That's right. He had like thirty some odd points again, which really shows how talented he is on the Lakers. And while he's I think a valuable trade peace. If you're gonna treat him for Anthony Davis. He's definitely a guy. You would have to have in my opinion on that list to trade. Yeah. It's true. He's very utilized. Yes. And I'm the pelicans. They don't if they offer me up like Lonzo heart in like some other guys. Don't add coups. Like, you're adding Kusuma. Yeah. For for Kuzina. Yeah. For the pelicans and the Lakers. Yes. For the pelicans, and the Celtics that trade goes down. Yeah. You gotta get Tatum them, probably Marcus smart too. I for sure would say that the Celtics if we're talking about that have would have the better trade package because Tatum guys like Jalen Brown. Yeah. You get thrown. Marcus smart, Terry Rozier is another option. Like there's a lot of a number of good player. Yeah. And also Anthony Davis had said that if the accusation of him not wanting to play for the Celtics is completely false. So obviously they're going to be a contender for in this summer for trading for Anthony Davis. But I think all in all it's going to be either the Lakers or the Celtics get. Davis. I don't I can see other teams going offering a ton. But I think bottom line is those are the two that have the most to offer. We also need to see who gets the number one pick because the number one pick this year is going to be probably the most talked about number-one pick since LeBron James, so. We can't we have to talk about it like that, you know, depending on the team that gets it that maybe that team wants Anthony Davis over Zion. Williamson I have no idea. I really don't. But you never know. You just never know. So t- think if okay if a team goes with the number one pick it get Zion. Are you willing to trade him to get an Anthony Davis? Well, that's the thing. Yeah. That's that's what I would like. But who what team is mainly what I'm asking. I what team would put the best offer adding zone and then a couple of other players in draft picks for Anthony Davis or or we crossing a line. I have no idea. But I think that the number one pick is going to be way more valuable than a lot of the trade pieces at another team is going to trade like if the Lakers, even if the Lakers offered their young talented players plus draft picks on the picks are going to be very high not lottery picks in theory because the fact that have Davis and LeBron right? So I don't know if that's more attractive than a package of Zion. Williamson in the couple of players. I don't know. See? Yeah. I honestly think the teams with the highest draft picks. And like the teams that are rebuilding are like the best situation at trade for Davis because they have more to offer in the draft situation. What if a team could get like the Knicks like if the Knicks traded Zion for Anthony Davis, and then they went out and they signed two stars. They could do that. Because it she'll having Davis. I one extra year contract with four they can re-sign this summer and not even wait around for to develop. They could just get Davis Durant is Davis still has one more year on his contract..

"All right. Your Lakers have offered. Brandon ingram. Kyle kuzina. Lonzo ball some other stuff and some picks. Right. Yes. So the pelicans for Anthony Dave's. Yes. Two first rounders. All right. And so the word now is that the pelicans won't four first rappers. Correct. Do you take that to mean that the pelicans are not going to trade Anthony Davis legs before the trade deadline or that they are absolutely going to trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers before trade? It smells like one of those instances where they keep moving the goal post. Like, you get you get close you get close. And then it's like, oh now it's going to be a little bit more. Okay. Now, it's going to be a little bit extra to the point where you don't ever think it's going to happen. So I I think the way that it's developing seems like they're gonna hold onto them to the summer, and they just wanna embarrass the Lakers. Now, I think is going to have think so I do I also think the part of why it's going to happen is there's all this talk about the pelicans like if they don't trade him basically shelving for the season to make sure that they can trade them after the year. And if you're out of silver, you can't allow that. Yeah. Sit him on the sidelines. They can get better pick. Yeah. Yeah. No. But you can't allow that. No matter what it is. That is so true that is tanking plus depriving him of the ability to play, you don't know. No, no, no. You can't have that. So like impart that they kind of need to get the trade done to prevent that. Circumstance were coming. But I also feel like Dell Dempsey's been roundly criticized for being a terrible GM. David Stern is criticized for being a tutorial g like everybody gets on him for being bad. And you know, it has got to be in his head to a degree. He has got a desperate team on the hook. The Lakers are in a situation where I feel like in order to make this move. They gotta make sure that they present a trade to the pelicans that looked better than anything. They think they might ultimately get from Boston. And so if you're dumps, and they're already at this place say, yes, if you can get some more, you're not gonna be able to get some more. But anyone see if you can get some more, and I think that on the trade deadline or right around and Anthony Davis is going to be playing for the Lakers. It's going to be LeBron and it's going to be Josh heart. And it's going to be Anthony Davis who else is left. I honestly don't know. Just as a Laker fan. I knew a couple other players. I mean, you know, who's conspicuously been absent from these trade talks. Don't you? Kentavious code will pope is he has a clutch client and really what?.
Is it possible for the Rockets to beat the Warriors?
"Want to buy. Aids. Is it possible? The rockets could get it together by the Western Conference fund where they're better than they were last year. Is that possible? I don't think so it's not possible. I don't think so I think that's poss- adult at the sixty five wins as good as they looked last year. I don't think it's possible for most teams to be better than they look lashes out. But what I mean is actually better like the the warriors one seventy three games. Yeah. And then they got better because they added the rent their regular season record wasn't as good. But in the moment of truth, they were clearly the best team. And of course, they should be big favorites. Again, the way they've been looking recently. And the talent we know they have my point is if you believe it's possible for the rockets to actually in the moment of truth now that they have the experience of last year be better than they were last year. They only need to be that much better by the snow. You don't think the lawyers? Got you go, Molly, I'm trying to make. It's just interesting doing down that ladder. They had no man that tell C P three got hurt. I just. Very very very clear. My reservations for Oakland have already been made. There is no there's no issue. Here is your I will be in Oakland at oracle ju- where where are you going to be on the east coast with us? I'm hoping I'm hoping today Milwaukee. But only for you know, I may wanna socialite that's all your team because a lot of drama goes another day in more support coming out for Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown. This time for fellow wideout juju Smith Schuster crazy stuff about AB. You gotta fill in a law firm. If you come back, you guys welcome. And they man he may he's guy. Yeah. Well, I wonder what his teammates feel about this tweet from AB who usually says businesses Bowman and right now, Stephen he's open for business. It'd be over for whatever you want still is Abbas right to say other so exc- he could be open to whatever he wants. I don't give a damn about Antonio Brown's feelings right now I wanted to stay with this. These that great. And really, by the way, I'm not telling you anything. I haven't told him. Yeah. If a damn by his feelings, I want him on a steel course. I don't want to Steelers to trade this, man. He's great. He's too. Great figuring it out. I'll give it there. You gotta give them a massage pedicure. You gotta take them. You gotta have sports therapy sessions with you gotta go play with his cage got treated to dinner for the next day. What you gotta do. Now. I will say this. I want him to apologize to Mike Tomlin to for pudding that coach in that position. But particularly considering the paucity of African American coaches, so only two and NFL it'd be three by the time. New England wins the Super Bowl, I guess unless they lose the bottom line is is that I don't like the position. He put my Tomlin. And that's about it outside of that. He doesn't want get Tomlin put him. That's fair. That's fair. Let's get over it and figure that I or Rooney is saying I don't see how you can be on the team next year. Yeah. And all the press all the chirping out of the Steelers negative towards the future with Antonio round. Like, we don't we don't see it, basically. Now, all of the sudden juju Smith Schuster, though, watching his body language and his and hey, Derek Carr. Yeah. I'm I'm inferring. What I see? That's true. I didn't seem to me like it was in juju Smith, Schuster heart. But you can't know another Mantar all you can do is inferred from what you see. Didn't I don't know? If he if those words that are coming out of his mouth reflect the way, he's feeling, but I'll let me read between the lines a little bit. It seems to me Stephen A that at the point that they were saying all that stuff. They were probably thinking we are going to try to trade him. And probably I imagine started to kick the tires on some trade ideas like one could they get back for him. And I think what I read this. As is. Maybe what's happening here is they're not liking what they're hearing in terms of the return on moving Antonio Brown. And that they're better off with him. That's my sense. If they don't if that is true, then the Steelers would have everything to do with that. Because how do you want to trade such as surreal asset and command top dollar a top cash eighth for him? When in fact, you've served a role in excoriating, correct? So what you do don't they say this is what happened with Kyrie? Right. When the whole world. Knows he's outta there. Or you're gonna get the best offer. The worst offer at the worst offer you have to make people believe that he's going to stay whether that's because you don't get the offer you want. It's going to snake or to make people believe it. So they come with a better offer before we move onto LeBron. I just have to say this quick. I don't think I ever gave you props on this. When lady on bell was sitting going to sit out. And I was like there's no way he sits out. You're like, no he's probably going to sit out and he sat out the entire season. I think you're the only person that actually believed that he would do that. When we think he could do if you wanted the gold at the end of the grandma never would his type talent on that team. But happened LeBron James on this is fifteen straight game with the Lakers take on the Timberwolves tonight. But he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the sons, according to coach Luke Walton when he was injured on Christmas day the Lakers weren't fourth place in the west since they injury, Los Angeles five and nine they've dropped to ninth plates in the west, Stephen A. How bad is what bronze injury for the Lakers of worry. I was told not to be worry if LeBron James Levy reading. Needed to he could go out the plate, and he would be ready, but I find this to be the most significant injury of his career I'm incredibly concerned because I want the Lakers to get a big time free agent. I want them to make some noise in the summertime, and I think that obviously when you took thirty four years of age, they are going to be people who are going to question your ability, even the great LeBron James almost never hurt. So the fact that he's outright. Now, you have to wonder whether or not a potential free agent is going to look at that. And question how much time does he have left at this level? That's when I'm not saying there's any legitimacy to that. I'm simply saying that that's a reasonable cause for concern. And so the bright lights LA Tinseltown palm tree. So the California weather notwithstanding. You'd never know what some marquee free agent is going to look at when it comes to Magic Johnson. Lincoln picking up the phone to call them and say come on L A what I man the Bron. When in fact, they're wondering about LeBron. More. I look at this more. I think Jerry's going to be a Laker. Yeah. Because I started to run down the scenarios if it's not a Y, and it doesn't look like it'll be why I wouldn't put anything past magic he landed. Lebron after all if it's not going to be K D or someone like that if Kemba Walker in fact wants to stay where he is. And they work that out if Mike Conley is not the answer in a trade. And if the Celtics don't wanna give Kyrie a supermax like why would we want to stay in Boston, not only that they're extremely talented coach the whole thing, but he'd get a supermax deal. Then I think kyri and LeBron could come around in their own minds to seeing a reconciliation as hey, what if Kobe and shack worked it out what if they parted ways? But then they said, you know, what we messed this up. Let's work this out and that eventually the Lakers would be Kyrie's team that's got to be very appealing. We know kyri has relationship with Kobe. And could you imagine if the Lakers didn't have to give up any assets at this trade deadline, if they kept Ingram and Kuzina and. An and heart and all these guys and simply added KYW read or run Bill that happens where are they in the west for ten Kyrie's there right now with LeBron and LeBron's healthy. And assuming Ingraham continues to improve and mom gets a little better share, maybe one more acquisition the right acquisition. Lakers can win the chip next year. If kyri is there, you do not need Lonzo ball. They're correct. And that means you might get something for Lonzo. Then you might not need Brandon Ingram either. Say that happening playing with LeBron listen, I'm told that is far fetched kyri is happy and Boston. He has no intentions of leaving. But Kenny had ever go around not shutting. I don't have to pretend I'm not sharing anything anything's together. Anything is they get back together for now. Sure about that. Thanks. Mitch listening to the podcast gets.

"kuzina" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"That part of the reason that they've been a lot better than the last two games is because Koku Smith came back Kuzina is the guy that allow. Them to be more like themselves and have to do less things that we talked about like me and be more aggressive score more points that when coups is there the rest of that snaps into place because he's the number two in know that three-game winched three-game losing streak wasn't simply because Bron was out. But the back took out Ingram is wet or coups as well. He didn't play much and didn't play well at all against. Okay. See, and it just kind of went from there. So it's not a coincidence that you pointing out that his arrival or return has also sparked Winnie. The question is, of course, is can they keep the fire up with coups on the floor. Once Bron Bron comes back and don't get into this bad habit of just sitting back and watching broad do his thing and not being aggressive. They have to maintain this level regression. You may not be able to get fifteen shots up. But we need you to play like you're gonna get fifteen shots up. Well, I think he I think when you look at it though for overall you play. Well, I mean, he played great basketball to me. He didn't you know, fifteen shots. Whether they whether they hit or not, I think his game is passing the ball, rebounding. Planned a little defense. That's what he that's what he's brought here. Four for whatever reason we get caught up, but we've been caught up now about scoring and putting up shots. Key. It's the attacking mindset. So that the team actually tax five times a game. Is that good enough? No. It's not. No not. Okay. So if he attacks and he misses, no, no, no, I didn't say shoot, I said attack. But that's what he does he attacks dishes. But no, I think he's got to attack and shoot simul Agnew him. When he goes into the pain, he has to at least a threat to put the ball into the bucket. Check. Checking into the pain, and he's a air quotes attacking it. But he's always looking to kick. I don't have to defend that as much or it's easier to defend that's the to talking about scoring necessarily key. I'm talking about Brandon Ingram and Lonzo ball's comfort in being the center of it. All they seem for more comfortable when someone else like coups. Lebron is guys all do the heavy lifting and with that attacking and shooting reminds me win Ben Simmons when he played the Celtics in that series last year in the playoffs. They had Horford them. Ben Simmons guardian at the free throw line saying go ahead. I dare shoot. And Ben Simmons was ver- all his numbers below average. There were better with McConnell on the floor in the playoffs. Why exactly you got attack you have to and he has not in? This is a criticism of those guys. I mean it as a compliment to Kyle Kuzma that he's comfortable being. Yeah. I'll do it. Yeah. He's comfortable with it. Which is why he's to I hear that. There are trouble in the streets. How's the helicopter key? Good, man. I'm on the I five Santa Ana freeway, which is the San Diego freeway north Washington boulevard is backed up. There's a crash blocking off ramp. He you you have your shop. You're right. So. At the end of the day.

"Still nursing the sore groin from Christmas. And I remember when it happened on Christmas day saying growth, take time currently do with this in terms of rehab other than just be patient. They're saying you might not come back now for a few more games. Do we just sit back and just give him a hall pass? Because. No lebron. And there's no Rondo so we can't really judge them or look at hold them accountable for these games and just hope that they can write the ship. So they're still in the playoff conversation by the time. He comes back. I mean, there's a lot of people that say look, look, look what Luke Walton has to deal with if Lonzo ball's our second best player and this roster. Brandon Ingram being the best player. When Kuzina was out. How many people would how many games did you win with that team and the full season Kuzina just kind of coming back and Kuzma said this morning that has backfield's one hundred percent now didn't you know, he didn't wasn't able to do anything for like a week? So then that last game was trying to knock the the rust off. But. You know, I think most basketball people would say, okay, look, you know, look at the roster to the have way to LeBron gets back way to Rondo gets back. But Magic Johnson he is as competitive as they come. So I think he looks at he's always gonna look at the upside of his guys and say like somebody should be getting the best out of these guys. These guys should be progressing. And so, and he probably looks at what happened to Dallas and wonders why don't they these guys play every night like most Laker fans will probably think we are moved on from generation I think of giving top draft picks time to mature time to develop before expecting them to contribute, especially when their guys going out in the lineup, and they have an opportunity to step up. So you'll get Brandon Ingram and you look at other young players in this league. Like Joel Embiid or Ben Simmons or Donovan Mitchell or Jason Tatum guys who in years one two and three are really able to make some noise on a big stage. Brandon Ingram now in year. Three. We don't know what you're going to get every night. Yeah. The night in Dallas. He goes for twenty plus and he looked solid or night against Sacramento. Lebron was healthy. I think he played really well, or you know, you look at Brandon Ingram and is number two pick. I wa- point in these games with LeBron out. Do you start to say, hey, you gotta be going for twenty and playing aggressive and looking for your shot as opposed to get lost in the sauce and having the night like he did against an I think that's the one thing that a lot of people can't seem to put their wrap their heads around. Is that why can't why is it always Lonzo ball is not engaged? Why it take like Lou Walton for the first time kind of calling them out publicly? You know, saying we need more effort at energy to wake them up and get them to get enough late night phone call to talk about how they need to play better. Your historian of the game. Take me back to the nineties when you first got started or in the two thousands when when you were working in New York and now out here with the Lakers. What players have been? Great all time without having a motion. What stoic stars? Have there been when you think of the great players of all time the guy's really impacted the history of the league. And we're dungeon. Tim duncan. Yeah. Yeah. So here you have to two young stars. Brandon Ingram Lonzo ball who don't play with emotion that doesn't mean give me your Dame face are have to make it be overly animated. If you're that's not really your personality. But historically, if you look through the league, the guys who have had the greatest success for the most part have played with some type of emotion basketballs and emotional game..

"This guy going strong all these definitely been a big time deposits team actually mixed the game winner in remember that well giving away my life two minutes to look into the league. No good. Lonzo going the other way coast to coast give it up take it yourself. That's good. But hold on watching their comes up lame at the end of the play leaves the game with Cranston his length. So but under a minutes ago game tied at one twelfth. We're going to give it to the link is the Kuzina heeds wills the three Lakers. One fifteen one hundred thirty two Blake again coups month. Yes. The other way, we go by Dan can't get it to go. But watch Justin Jackson, right place. Right time. Right. Resolve no one's math. He can't put in the bunny and Ingram is gonna come. With the ball, and he gets fouled. So the Lakers are going to shoot two free throws with a one point lead. And just under five seconds to go Luke Walton looking on. It's going to be Ingram needs to make both short the three point lead. He would make the first this is the second. That's no good. So the kings again get back with four point three to play and I would build a suspense. But Jay will already told you what's going to happen? Switch switch heads into the poll gave and right there. In the face of Tyson Chandler look at that shot kings win one seventeen one sixteen a fabulous performance from Sacramento team. That is playing a lot better than people realize and candidly the Lakers without LeBron. Look pretty good as well. Here's their coach Luke wall. With him being heard. This is the first coast game. We've been in that he's not there. You know, if LeBron James is playing in that game, you know, probably finishes a little different. But that's that's what we have to get our guys were doing last year. But when you get the best closer in the game on your team, then you rely on him to do that. But all that said we made enough plays to win. We just didn't take care of little things. All right. So let's talk about this. The Lakers managed only twenty one point in the fourth quarter yesterday without LeBron who himself is eight point three in the fourth this year. Most in the NBA it would be the second highest Mark of his career behind only is age Twenty-three season. So they miss him there. They back the big shot that was very interesting game. But as we take it to the table here, which will and I wanna go back to the warriors their own three now in games to go to overtime this year. This is their second back to back series of back to back home losses under Steve Kerr DJ as you watch them put your finger on it. What's the one? Biggest problem? The warriors have right now. They're co he's an offense and the turn the basketball over two minute too many times, they're not getting quality as the basket. And another thing that hurt them last night. Was there inside defense notice had twenty seven points. I don't know the last time he scored that many points in the game. And he was just going unimpeded to the basket. And they have to do something about that. I know they miss Damon Jones who's out with Inge. They also missed Vail McGee and also Zaza to I would say Steve Kerr needs had changed the game plan offensively and how it uses data. I think that's going to be huge for Draymond green. He does not need to be a pick and pop player. He does not need the ball in his hands to make please he needs to start rolling. He needs to start cutting the less you can keep the ball in his hands is the more. I think the offense will move and get everybody involved. And I think they miss an inside presence. But I think this game last night was lost due to their stagnant that they had all been simply more so than what happened events. They just have. It looked right, right. They just don't look exactly right which along NBA season. I know that they've won back to back championships, maybe a level fatigue. But they just don't look, right. And I can't understand it..

"Shooting team only Sacramento is worse. And they're worse by point zero zero two percent. So it's basically a wash right there. And you look at the teams that you're going to have to be in the west if the Lakers are gonna make a run at this thing you look at it. Golden State is second in the league they shoot eighty three percent Portland is third in the league, they shoot eighty two percent. The clippers are an eighty percent group. The I mean you look at the teams that are you're gonna play in the playoffs. They're making eighty you're making seventy in last night. Cow Kuzina was seven for seven other than that. The Lakers were eight of fifteen. Here's the other problem. The Lakers have like they can't even make it back in volume like if they could be a seventy percent free throw shooting team, but they get to the line among the most in the league they can start as. Making up vomits way. Houston used to do last year with three points, and they weren't a great three point shooting team. But they took so many eighty of them again. Works in their favor. Lincoln don't get the line. Like LeBron gets the line. I think about seven or eight times a game. Brandon Ingram like four to five from there. It's kouzmine at I wanna say barely three like Casey peas fourth on the team takes to game. I mean, he's ninety percent good for him or the leaner. Joe's and wonder Andy. The Lakers are good enough team to have the opponents start to hack a Laker. Do you go to or the Lakers beatable? You don't have to go into the reason you would see hack Jordan in hacker shack. And all these things is that the clippers at that point were really good team. That's how you would need to beat them. The Lakers, of course, were a championship caliber team the strategy. You're going to play them in beat them you needed to find goofy way to try and beat them. Do you think we're gonna see it? Do you think we're going to see the other teams in the Western Conference, go to hack Laker? Can they just beat them straight up? I mean, here's the thing about doing Hackel. Laker is you're going after everybody, which means your own foul count starts as a team getting. Really high, and you might start putting guys that really matter and foul trouble like when you're doing hack shack or Hakodate J, your ice elating one guy you start looking to hack five guys all the time like on one hand. Kind of fear if you're gonna hack guy, you gotta use to you know. That's your fault. I mean, I'm going to be honest. This your fault. That's no. It's not my fault. That's not even. That's not really even correct phrasing. Really start thinking about this. Nobody talks like that. He does. I mean, no normal person talks like that. I'm just saying layer enough. I that's just getting into a whole different universe that none of us want to visit. Clearly there their free throw of one person does they running mates. The night at the Roxbury like this really awful. Like, the world's worst. Most yvonne. Oh. And now you're doing it on purpose doing it up. Gotta lean take one. I last night. Moving fast. And he just got got say up on the gas and just go through it. I lost last night. Whatever it doesn't. I'm not too worried about them losing the game. But I think that it's indicative of a larger problem that when you get in to the better teams, they're gonna make you're going to not end. The the biggest surprise to me. Lebron James is never been Mark Price. But he for most of his career, especially when he's been in these championship mix. He's been a guy makes seventy five percent of him and seems to make most of them when you're really paying in lebrons stroke..

"You ready? Yeah. I'm just thinking his Miss America. Then go ahead. We thought they canceled that Miss Universe. Rid of that. I thought that wasn't okay anymore. That. The lakers. According to the Los Angeles Times are not in the market of moving any of their young core. We in that's Kuzina. Lonzo ball Brandon Ingram. Josh those guys are available member we were talking about maybe the Lakers trying to make a move for Trevor Aretha earlier that maybe Casey p was a part of that that they've been trying to figure out how to bring a guy either a reason specifically or somebody like a reason in, but according to the story the Lakers are not gonna move any of those young guys, and they shouldn't I don't think that they should. And if you wanted to move any you would probably look to heart. You know, hard is a little more guided, I would say, you you you could possibly look at him and say, okay. But when you start talking about ball Ingram, obviously cools in his own chemicals is all star category. So you can't deal with that. And then I think it it's a wait and see approach on the other two hearts, not a bad player. No. It's not that. I don't like him or anything like that. I just think his value is not is not so great that you can't move him. I think those other two got more value. It depends on how we're defining value. I think they have more potential. I think that they have more talent. I think that they're they're they're probably probably going to be better players than he is. But I don't know if the value of them as we sit here right now, if we're talking that the value includes their potential than yes. The other guys are more valuable. But I think I have valued value does include potential. Okay. Okay. But what I'm saying is is that I think I know exactly what Josh Hart is gonna give me tonight. I know what Josh Hart is going to give me six months from tonight. I know what Josh heart's gonna give me sixty years from tonight. Josh Hart is going to give me roughly what this is right now, and you would like to see him get incrementally better year to year. But it's not like Josh heart's gonna all of a sudden turn around and be got. It's gonna get you twenty five night. He's not going to be that. But he's a the other guys are potentially guys that could give twenty five a night, potentially guys. That could be the next Jason Kidd, but night in night out there all over the map. So I don't know if that's more or less valuable than a guy like heart now for both of you a question. Do you think Josh heart could grow into a Bradley Beal type? No, it don't you well enough. All right kino. He doesn't shoe say he he does shoot but his streaky. He he's not a he can't go six of eight. You know aid of teen. I mean, it just doesn't you know, it doesn't have that type of potentials what you're saying. So if you don't see that upside, then that changes a little bit for me. I mean, I still would I don't think he's part of Radley peel is a career forty five percent field goal shooter career thirty nine percent three point shooter thirty nine percent from through. That's really good. That's really good. That's right around that forty percent that you're looking for. This is a guy that averages nineteen a game for his career. He's averaging twenty three points per game right now this season. But see if you average in nineteen and twenty that's the second guy. Yes. That's the second guy. Jess hordes. Not the second guy. That's what is cool average and so forth. It's just points whatnot. What's his stat line? Clio Kuzina is a guy that is not a particularly high percentage shooting guy. Let's see coup so far for his career shooting. Forty six percent from the four and shooting thirty five from three thirty..

"Well, he always had that. That the next guy you knew what he was. And especially for the guys that we are expecting a lot of this year. Lonzo ingram. We don't exactly know what they are yet. This is my NBA desktop spice take here if we're gonna strip the names away and the expectations away and talk about who's actually been the second best guy. It's been jail. Negate like developing he's been good this year. You're looking at me like, I'm a crazy person. And I am but he hasn't been good for that. Yeah. He has been good. But you you can't rely on him as any beyond Olympic actor. Well, it's not even just that. No time is is that I just don't think that you can say that it's like giving sample size awards to the guys with good stats who play like so few minutes. Granted he is playing twenty five minutes. Okay. He's played in quite some time. I'm not sure I have to check. But you can't say like, oh, he's been there. Second best guy. If he's only been playing like what twenty five minutes twenty four minutes a game. But that's yet. Again, it goes to my point. I mean, I think like if you ask LeBron this question he would probably say Kouzmin because the other night after they beat the Suns. He was saying like, I'm always looking for. Kuzina, and he'll tell you that. Okay, fine. That's good Christmas been heads love. Kuzma, relatively good your ages. And we we don't stand for that. Here at heat check. I I love that. He loves kouzmine. I just wonder how much is actually going to get out of coups Malang term. That's what on there that's fair. As I looked at the minutes played just to see where to Bill lines up.

NBA preseason 5-on-5 - Lakers, rookies and predictions
"Who does who makes those shots? Is there a high volume thirty, eight percent three point shooter on that jails been working on his jumper. I actually weirdly, I'm not worried about that with the Lakers and I guess part of the reason I'm the main reason I'm optimistic about the Lakers because LeBron's on their team. The other reason I'm optimistic about the Lakers is all the attention been paid to the veterans and why did they sign these guys can't shoot. They don't make any sense there. Playmakers lebrons a playmaker blob of is crazy, Michael Beasley. What? How I think they're young guys are good. Like I think they're young guys are better than those veterans and part of what makes their team confusing. An interesting to me is sort of like how quickly are they going to come to the realization that like heart Kuzina Ingram should all play more than the veterans at Casey, pe- as he's sort of like, tailor-made, he's never been as good as shooters. People think like he looks like a good shooter and he's just an okay one. But you know, as a defense for spot up guy like he fits, he fits what you need around the Bron. I, those guys are all better than the veterans as signed it, and, and that's what's interesting. To me is like, when do they realize that?

"Second game here last night against Yokich with Kuzina at the five than they were in their first game as that progress grant that again is just preseason that progress is a little bit encouraging because they only have to fail McGee as one of their main big men zoo, bats. He's all right. We'll see how Wagner does is he gets back on the court, but mcgee's their number one, big man. So they're going to have to play small ball. And if you're a Lakers fan that had been encouraging the see some progress in that game last night, there's some guys that didn't play, not the least of which is Lonzo ball, but let me ask you this. He started last night if I've got this right Rondo heart LeBron Ingram and Val. Right. That was the starting five last night from the Lakers. How different do you think that will be from whatever his opening night lineup is, what do you, what do you think the starting five for the Lakers is going to be? Does Rondo store? Does Lonzo start? Do they both? That could be the starting five right there. We'll see about Casey p starting over Harper personally. I think heart should start. And one of the reasons why is because he's a better shooter, he he's a more consistent shooter shot. Forty one percent on catch and shoot three's last year hard as a baller man. I think that guy's really underrated and call. Well, pope is a good player in his own right as well. But I really like having heart out there for floorspace purposes with the starting lineup, then maybe Casey p. can do a little bit more for you in that bench role playing alongside Lonzo ball, assuming he also comes off the bench with Kuzina Blaker deep. I mean, like they have a lot of their the mean team. They have a lot of goofy players, but there's some good towns on that team as well. I liked the roster a lot. So you think the starting lineup, they started last night Rondo heart LeBron Ingram Javagal could very well be the starters, and then their bench becomes Lonzo caldwell-pope Kuzina Beasley, Lance, you know, of those whoever gets minutes of those guys. Yeah. Saint Luke plays a bunch of guys. I mean, I, it's not going to be a short rotation. I bet a bunch of guys get minutes for that team. Yes. Yeah. And like you said that a lot of guys will get minutes. I think there's a lot of our civility. You can. You can dip into the tenth eleventh guy in that roster if you need to depend depending on what the game demands depending on the match up and ultimately that versatility will be will be interesting to watch where it'll be tough for them is in some of those against those traditional big men when jail Ming. Either guy that has really not played over twenty minutes and quite a long time in his career. When the other options zoo, bats and Wagner both incredibly young, they're gonna have to place small, and that's going to be really intriguing to watch over the course of the season or if they try to seek out adding another big man. At some point, we're going to get to the GM survey a little bit later, but I be remiss if I didn't mention that in their survey to, in fact, the two top breakout candidates for this year according to general managers across the NBA, the number one vote getter was dramatic Murray. The number to vote getter was Brandon Ingram. Now, I know Murray did not play in that game last night, but I was a little surprised that. Murray was the one voted by GM's across the league as the guy that would break out. I actually thought it would be Ingram simply because of getting to play with LeBron you and I were both have always been big fans of Ingram, love. You know it's a third year of maturation, and you could see him as the running buddy with LeBron we talk about all those other guys on the team truth be told on a nightly basis, who's the other guy getting a bunch of points like the answers Ingram, right? If it's somebody 'cause Rondo doesn't give you a lot of points. Neither does heart heart will be a double digit guy. Probably je Val doesn't score a lot, and even those guys off the bench, you know, add, imagine Kuzina some nights. He's gonna get your big nights and then some nights he's not caldwell-pope and get you double digits..

"You know, like it's it's pretty some fathomable. Yeah, is he's incredible one more thing on Lonzo just not to let them ago because I'm glad you see it and I, I keep reading how he's not gonna. Has he gonna play with LeBron, isn't he'd? It's, he needs the ball and it's like, nobody's actually seem to of watch this guy play. He actually doesn't need the ball. He gets rid of the Bom mmediately. You're right. I think that's what's cool about him is he's this point guard who's just trying to move the ball to the rake guy immediately. He doesn't need the buffer, nine, ten seconds. I mean, I guess the questions that I had about him were is his mechanics on his shot can hinder him. I think he's made enough shots that he can be a good standstill shooter, catching shoe guy, which is super important. Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if he developed. My question is with with his mechanics. Can he go right and pull up and do stuff now. Okay. But not everyone's a pull up mid range commending together state Nash camp, teach them no one leg shots. Well, he'll get them the all the all these guys are doing all those things and but I would say his mechanics, but I think he makes enough or will eventually make plenty of threes. I also worried about a little bit about us his motor, and I think more that is because he is a he is a bit of a teacher team guy in. Yeah, I so you giving you take, and I've also seen plenty of games with him where his defensive energy, outstanding, you know? So I think he is a chance to be left. I team all defense pointer, why not as long and he's got that fight. So think about this, this Lakers team, which everybody is somehow written off because get a free agent. Lonzo LeBron Brandon Ingram heart. Who I'm leaving out somebody Kuzina Kuzina they've what they won more bigger guy. They signed somebody who can be the rebounded offender gab Lincoln. But if Ingram goes up one more level, he doesn't be like an all star. But if he can be a little more reliable offensively with the stuff LeBron does in the energy, those home games are going to have. I think they can be pretty good. I think they're a top four seed. They're going to be good. Like I, I look at those four young is unlike the mall, very competitive. Yeah, skillful, a loving room. You know, as far as the guy can do a lot of things on the basketball court, but heart terrific who's MAs, gonna shot to be really good. So like you put if not forget, put them with LeBron James. I mean, that's the team that will be tough to be night in night out. And like you said, with the energy Staples, especially that this, you know this like Lakers fans has been tough. So the energy is going to be double just because going to going to be an event earth. So yeah, it can be so hard to get tickets. Exactly. What are they gonna roll. What current player you most jealous you didn't get a chance to play with who who'd been the perfect fit for you though? It's a good question, Anthony Davis. That's how I was thinking like at least as the two thousand six to seven Amari he'd be an incredible pick and roll partner also protects the room can go guard anyone basically. Yeah, is shooting the ball now. He's he's kind of a dream. They could power forward center. I mean, today's game, you can play the five, which leaves you more space for more versatile players around him. He's he'd be a dream to play with Fisher..

"Okay. And then there's the reality of going like that and then you have this is worse than I if it's what you thought it the the experience of hill question and use want to say I, especially if you can fix it with just by goop washing your also some of the what, how he's gonna place, you mean radically different than what he's been doing, and I don't think it will be. I think they're going to try to run more than LeBron typically does, which will help him not hurt him. The idea that you know the bronze too old run, no running. It's easier than the other stuff and then orchestrating in the half court and what LeBron James can run for seven hours. Hours without stopping. That's not a problem. So I think that stuff will help him. And ultimately he's going to have the ball in his hands plenty and assuming they have guys around who are smart players who move without the ball well, who which actually describes the young guys more than the older ones, Josh heart. Great without the ball Lonzo. Great without the ball Ingram moves well, without the ball Kouzmin all these guys get it. And I, I, in less they flat suck and the that's almost that's almost off the tape, right? And the only way they completely flat suck without liberal, correct. And the only way they flat suck as if Lonzo regresses in Ingram regresses and it Kuzina regretted all these guys aren't good. And if that happens, we got bigger problems in in LA than LeBron is upset. It means they're not gonna get anywhere. They're gonna go and the players that we thought were good chips to try to trade for are worthless. Yeah, I and I don't think that's going to happen because I think of the four guys that were. Talking about with Kuzina in Ingram in heart and Lonzo. There's a very good chance that none of them suck, and there's a very good chance that a couple of them could be genuinely special crown. But that doesn't mean that they necessarily fit well with LeBron. And so this whole season of figuring out who fits and who doesn't fit. There's going to be moments where one of those guys is not getting a ton of time because it's not fitting in because it's just not it. They're bad fit. And now what do you do in that situation? Because if I'm just picking a name out of thin air, let's say it's Lonzo that Lonzo just isn't isn't having work his way Rondos out there lot Rondos playing. Well, Rondo is just the better version of Lonzo that what what happens now with you? Just spend a second round pick on the guy. He's not what you thought he was. Maybe he's even starting to go backwards. That's a weird spot to be. There's I don't think it's one hundred percent. Perfect. That's that's not the point. I just I, I feel like they're the one part that gets ignored here when people talk about like you say, eight straight finals. He has expectation. He's also never put himself in the context of. I don't think we're going to get to the finals like everybody says, we're not gonna get the finals and I kind of agree with them.

Now, if he managed to drag this team to the finals, it's like LeBron is the greatest basketball player of all time because as you know, a good team that he's on and good young players with some decent benched up and some interesting options of they're not..

"I i wanna to say what the eagles did with that lady who worked for thirty years and chip kelly fire and the governor ring that was awesome like that that you can't like that that's just class that's class exactly what a what that but why i called was i look at the quiet leonard situation and when brian winters goes on sports sports number and he's connected tim o'brien he says per month he's been hearing things that coli is connected to lebron the only two places where that could possibly go down would be either la or philadelphia because i don't think the celtics wanna just blow up everything just to get coli m o'brien in there i think they just want colli so if that's the case it starts looking like this because i don't think popovich wants to deal with the lakers he might be able to get brandon ingram kuzina but i don't think he wants to see quite playing in la and have to see him four times a year and then have to deal with the facts you could get a package not as good but damn near close from the seventy sixers and not have to deal with that that to me is something that people are saying we can't treat dario we can't trade bullets can't treat this if you could get coli and he brings you lebron too you're going to win the championship next year this better than what the warriors to put out on the court i should say that as good as what the worst could put on the court couple of things number one i don't think kawai get you lebron i think that lebron going to go where lebron wants to go would if the sixers were to be able to acquire quiet leonard prior to free agency which i would guess they'd have to because one of the key asset to.
