"But at the end of the day, he's a Hall of Fame basketball player who is a perfect fit with LeBron James and Anthony Davis who the reason he wasn't available this year is no longer existent. He is going to be available this year. The Kyrie LeBron Anthony Davis fit is perfect across the board and on top of it like Joe Harris is obviously coming back from surgery. And if you're the nets, I think you should want to get off of this show Harris deal, but if you're the Lakers and you're getting Joe Harris in this deal, it's actually like a pretty big win for them. Yeah, like I know it's a bigger tax bill for the bus family and apologies about that. But like the money actually lines up pretty well to Kyrie and Joe Harris for Russell Westbrook and it might be Taylor Horton Tucker might be the God forbid. You can't trade PhD. Gotta keep him. Hit all costs, but you know, I think selfishly as a pelicans fan, this is not something I'm terribly upset with because I do think Kyrie adds an element of unpredictability. And that's really what you're gambling on is there's going to be something unpredictable about the Lakers future. But also it further reduces options for the Lakers to get better via trade. As long as they keep trading picks that are far out far out far out for the near term, I think the pelicans can look at that 2024 pick which they can defer to 25 and be like, okay, you know, maybe by then they give exhausted all their options. Maybe they even got another ring out of it, but we're sitting pretty nicely. I mean, this 8th pick that they got this year is a nice boon. I'm pretty sure they didn't expect to get that. So they're sitting on a swap for next year and if Kyrie is there, then it's very possible that the pelicans don't swap. But you know who knows? Maybe KD ends up on the pelicans in the end up swapping anyway. Who knows? Yeah, well, we'll talk about the KDE thing, of course. But yeah, I mean, for the nets, now they're going to have the spacing nightmare that is Russell Westbrook and Ben Simmons. Look, if I'm Brooklyn, as much as I hope Russell Westbrook like finds a place to play and I think there are.

"If the deadline, if this team is not very good, he also might just help them win with Donovan Mitchell right now. Patrick Beverly, valuable player. It's a fascinating move for Utah that I think really could pay dividends for them. It's a fantastic move for them regardless of our skepticism about Minnesota. Whether or not it's good for Minnesota, whatever for Utah it's definitely a great deal. Well, I'm so curious where they go next. They have a canvas. They have all of these ad sets. They netted a pick for the trade with the nets. Why am I blanking? Yeah, for Royce O'Neal. They got voice O'Neal, sorry. Yeah, they didn't stand up. So they have like what, 6, 6 additional what's going on? But to me, it's like they can now go and get anyone they want, right? If that's what they want to do. So do you want to go get John Collins? You probably could do it. Do you want to, do you want to put in a bunch of picks to get role players on decent contracts around Donovan Mitchell that allow you to then put it all together for another star down the line. You could do that. And so I think they're in a very interesting space. And Danny ainge is a clearly experienced with making these kind of trades and building from there. So we'll see one thing I did want to mention while we were speaking Chris Haynes tweeted out that the Lakers and that's our actively engaged in discussions for kairi centered around Russell Westbrook and all of that. So I just wanted to put this in our put this in our little thing. Chris Haines, just tweeted story out on that. I'm Zach keefer with the athletic. I covered Andrew Luck in his entire NFL career. He remains one of the most fascinating players I've ever encountered. I was there the night he shockingly retired, and ever since then, I've tried to deconstruct how his career ended the way it did. How could the greatest quarterback prospect since John Elway quit the game before he turned 30? We attempted to answer that question and how it happened in our new podcast series called luck. Luck tells the story of Andrew Luck with interviews from everyone from Bruce Arians to Tony dungy from David Shaw to RG three from Chris Ballard to Jacoby Brissette, Peter king, and several more. The entire series will be released on July 11th on the athletic football show podcast feed. So look for luck wherever you get your podcasts and listen to luck ad free on the athletic app..

"Need to hire, you need indeed. I don't know if the word out of the Lakers still feared in the league. I don't know if the word is feared right now. I think vilified might be that right now, I see a lot of teams that are especially fans of other teams that are celebrating the Lakers have been down and want to make sure that they do whatever they can to keep the Lakers there. And some because they know if the Lakers start getting some momentum, that becomes a problem. So that's where I think you come into issues with negotiating trades, and then you also have brought the link as history as an agent. Did you burn some bridges there? I don't think there's any team that's going to be super eager to negotiate with the Lakers and certainly not at any team that's interested in doing anything other than make a trade with the Lakers that cost the Lakers a lot that has to hurt for the Lakers to pull that off. I don't think there's any team out there that's going to say Christian wood for a couple of expiring in a second. If it's the Lakers that are trying to make that trade. Right? Nope, I'm an agreement. Lakers tax. What needs to be done to make this a reality? I made some championship contenders. They trade for all the good players or they give up nothing. I mean, really. Let me just maybe this just cuts to the chase. Can they be a championship contender without trading Russell Westbrook? Oof. No. No. So there you go. That's what has to be done. Much easier said than done, but right? I think there's a nonzero chance because you have LeBron James and hopefully a healthy Anthony Davis. But it's just so hard. Like, yes, look at the landscape and be realistic about where you stand amongst everyone else. This is where it would be nice if LeBron had two years left on his contract. Because with one year, he kind of holds the cards for the Lakers, but if he had two years, then maybe they don't go to him this way, but they kind of sell it to him like LeBron..

"Big free agency trades madness. Recap of everything that has happened over the course of the first two and a half days of NBA free agency season and the new calendar year. To do that, I've got shamit dua here. Shaman, tell the people where you have work. You have a few different places. And I want to get all of them. So I'm just going to allow you to get all of them. For sure, for sure. So you primarily right now you could find my work at boot crew media and that's also where our podcast is hosted. I have a co host mason Ginsberg, the podcast is called in the know and it's mostly about the pelicans, but we talk about the NBA as well. And yeah, I would say if you want to find my work, check out boot crew media. That's the primary destination at this moment. So I'm a big fan of shaman because he knows way more about CBA than I do. And is very, very good at knowing what's going on nationally across the NBA. And in large part, it's just because you grew up as a huge fan of the NBA and you follow this whole thing. You don't just follow the pelicans. You know what's going on leaguewide. It's great. I love it. Yeah, I mean, I grew up as a Shaquille O'Neal fan. I actually it's funny because I came to the states in 2000 and that was like the Shaquille and the Lakers were really doing their thing and so it became a big fan there and then we moved around a lot when I was a kid in like ten different states so it was difficult for me to nail down a specific team, but the MBA and basketball were content. So that's where I really picked up on following what's going on in the league and it was when I came to New Orleans and Chris Paul was there and they had a beautiful run where they ended up losing to this first..

Federal Investigation of Hunter Biden Heats Up

"So you have The Washington Post coming out saying the laptop is true. Miranda divine to her great credit led with the story with the article laptop from hell. The New York Post published it and they lost their Twitter account for even talking about it. And now you're starting to see in mainstream regime media pretty extensive coverage about a an indictment that might be looming because of a very serious and real federal investigation against Hunter Biden. This is CNN play cut 42. Well, Brianna, this is a very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes. We are seeing federal prosecutors in Delaware. Do exactly what you would expect to see federal prosecutors doing this situation. They're talking to witnesses, they're bringing people into the grand jury. They're issuing subpoenas. And I would expect, as Evan reported, they're now gaining steam and they need to make a decision, I think, in the at least intermediate future. In this case has been going on for four years and there is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges. Of course, then we be in unprecedented political territory, not legal territory, but a situation of having potentially the Justice Department prosecuting and trying to imprison the son of the president. And look, it's not like Hunter Biden is being investigated for doing something completely unrelated from his father. It's not like they're investigating Hunter Biden for not paying taxes because he's a sports star for the Lakers or for the New York rangers. Now this is because a business dealings he was doing with his father for his father and because his father who was who he was. The federalist dot com kind of summarizes some of truck grassley's findings, as chuck grassley and Ron Johnson have been on the story for years now and smeared at every single turn by the activist media but turns out they were totally right and completely on the Mark. Meanwhile, the activist press was not, according to the documents obtained by the senators, energy company CEFC, and an official arm of the Chinese government paid, Hunter Biden $100,000 cash further credit to a wasco, hunter's firm. There's no middle man in this transaction. This is a $100,000 wire transfer from what is effectively an arm of the Chinese government directly to Hunter

"Going. It looked like it was easy for them against this Lakers team. Again, rough one. Certainly a rough one, especially coming off that pelicans game. Mook Morris, I think it's safe to say we're not going to compete in the play in this year and really just looking forward to the off season at this point. Look, I think a lot of Lakers fans are there as well. And I'm curious, you know, chat, what do you guys think? Would you prefer to see the Lakers just miss the play in tournament completely? Like, this is something that we've been discussing lately. I talked about it on our last full Lakers nation podcast with Ron garman. That was went up this morning on the YouTube channel went out late last night as a podcast, what are we thinking about that? Would you rather just see them fall out and just not make it and be done? I'm on the side of I'd rather see them make it. I'd rather see them make it and then see what you can do from there. Continue playing fight on play hard all the way through because I don't want to just say, well, that's it. That's a wrap. We're probably not going to win, so let's quit. I don't like that mentality. I don't want to see that. That's not how I want to finish the season out. It's been a bad season. It's been, frankly, it's been the worst season. I think you could say this is probably the worst season ever for the Lakers. I mean, going back to early 80s, we can go back to maybe the 60s and 70s when we talk about the losses to the Celtics and the finals and all that kind of stuff. But in terms of relatively recent history, this is probably the worst season we've ever seen. So I'm not saying they're wrong. I understand why some people might say, you know what? Just get these guys going. Get this team off the screen. By the way, NBA, please take these guys off national television, stop doing this. There were other games out there you could have flexed in..

"Ouch, ouch. The Lakers followed the Dallas Mavericks by a lot. In fact, they were never really in this game to break down the final score. The Lakers lose one 27 to one O 5. It was 43 to 25. After the first quarter, 43 at 25 out of the first quarter. In fact, the Lakers lost every quarter of this game with the exception of the fourth quarter, the fourth quarter they came back Dallas Mavericks, they only scored 15 points. In the fourth quarter and the Lakers still lost. Oh, final score actually just updated one 20 to one ten. I can't notice I started setting up as the game was ending. Man, that was brutal. Now we expected this to be rough. We talked about this before the game with Mark gunnell's. The Mavs were the -12 ish depending on what line you were looking at, favorite heading into the night. And we certainly saw why. The Dallas Mavericks have been playing very good basketball. They've got something to play for. The Lakers know LeBron no Anthony Davis didn't look like they were playing for much out there not to say that they weren't putting in effort and weren't trying, but there's a difference. There's a difference in urgency between a team in this situation, the Mavs are in where they're playing to improve their seating and all that compared to a Lakers team that it feels like there's kind of an understanding of what's going on here and what's going to happen ultimately, even if they do wind up making the play and tournament. By the way, the Lakers now officially dropping to 11th and not in the play and tournament, which means now they must win one more game than the San Antonio spurs, the rest of the way through. The season, the spurs have, well, they've got a difficult schedule. They have a couple of games against the blazers, but then they have some really tough ones as well..

"Healthy or as close to that as possible. So I'm not risking any aggravations and applying tournament and God forbid you lose that play in tournament. So you have 80 comeback for practically nothing. So I'm personally sitting ADL. I think the Lakers are going to bring them back because they're still going to convince themselves they have a puncher's chance if they get LeBron and AD together, but same. Austin Davis said, what if we do a buyout with Russ? Isn't that different than waving at all? Yeah, so if you do a buy up, let's say you're the Lakers and Russ, obviously picks up his 47 million player option, which that's going to happen. In Russ says, you know what, I don't want to be here anymore. And that's what we've heard. It's mutual. Russ does Russ wants to go, just like the Lakers want him to go. And you say, okay, if you were a free agent right now, what do you think you would get on the market? For us as well, somebody would give me the mid level exception. I don't know math. Somebody says, I think we can get 10 million. Okay, so then you say, all right, here's what we're going to do then. Because we can't find a trade for you, we don't want to just wave you though. We'd rather, rather than wave you, there's not a lot of reason for us to do that. There's not a lot of incentive. We'd rather just pay you for one year to sit at home and then we'll move forward. But that's wasting your career. How about you work with us? You give back a little bit. You think you can get 10 million on the market, give back 10 million. We'll buy you out for 37 million. Okay? And then the Lakers would stretch that number. So the reason why waving is different than buying out, waving would be you take that 47 million, and that's it. That money is on your books, and then you have decision to make. You either leave that 47 million on your books for this season, or you can stretch it. You can stretch a contract out for double the length of the contract plus one. So one year deal would be stretched over three. So that would equate to almost 16 million per year in salary that would just be dead, sitting on the Lakers books for the next three seasons. If you do a buyout first and then wave them and stretch them, you're stretching 37 million and not 47 million. So now you're talking about roughly 13 million. That you have sitting on the book. So it's an extra 3 million that you would get as a team. That's the difference between those two options. Obviously, the Lakers would prefer to do a buyout and then stretch his salary over the other option. But if Russ says, you know what?.

"Everybody knows what's going on here. And this is all you can do. So optically, you would want the former, but I think realistically everyone knows that the latter is where everything is right now, right? I mean, we've already got a anonymous people within the organization saying there's only one month left. You have to imagine the players feel the same way too. As a fan, you hate to see that. You want to go down swinging, right? Even though we know you're probably not going to win anything this year, at least, have some pride and look like you're trying. So yeah, I mean, I don't know, I'm pretty agnostic about this team right now, just because if they don't care, why should I? You know, what you're saying is true and that sentiment I'm sure is shared by many Lakers fans. But it's sad, isn't it? It's so sad. I was super excited about this season, even though I know there was a lot of mixed feelings coming into it. I was still excited. But I think a lot of people, this has been the hardest, if not one of the hardest seasons to watch as a fan. So I'm right there with you. If you're having a hard time watching the Lakers, just know that I am too. We all certainly are. Why we won with a super chat said, I'm just going to outright ask, do we make it out of the plan? And if we do, how many games do we win if healthy? This is a disgrace. Okay, so the play in right now, if everything finishes as is, the Lakers would get the pelicans in the first round of the plan, then they would get the loser of the clippers and the wolves in the second round. If you survive that, you get the suns in round one. So how do you see that? How do you see that going? I think they will beat the pelicans for sure. I am going to go out on a limb and say, if they manage to get the wolves, I think they can secure a playoff spot. Because I think that team is still maybe another year of seasoning away from being like a real threat. So if that's how the bracket breaks out, I feel pretty good about my odds there..

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Tonight, episode two of the new HBO HBO Max TV show series, I guess you'd say, called winning time about the 1980s LA Lakers.

But what's interesting to me is not the story of the Lakers. I mean, I know the real story, but what's more fascinating to me are the people playing the parts. Some famous actors with some interesting roles, people you would normally expect to be one thing and then turning up to be another. And I don't want to spoil it for you who's already shown up and who's going to show up in the future. But it's one of those series that even if you're not a big sports fan, you'll be interested in going, I think that's so and so. John C Reilly plays doctor Jerry buss, the man who owned the Lakers. And he wasn't the first choice, in fact he wasn't even really the second or third choice I don't think, but he does a great job of playing it. It's very fascinating, and again, even if you're not a sports fan, it's very entertaining. At least the first episode was, I can't wait for episode two tonight of winning time.

Winning Time (MM #4008)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Tonight, episode two of the new HBO HBO Max TV show series, I guess you'd say, called winning time about the 1980s LA Lakers. It's done by Adam McKay, the guy who worked with Will Ferrell for many years on funny or die and was over this particular project, they had a falling out. But what's interesting to me is not the story of the Lakers. I mean, I know the real story, but what's more fascinating to me are the people playing the parts. Some famous actors with some interesting roles, people you would normally expect to be one thing and then turning up to be another. And I don't want to spoil it for you who's already shown up and who's going to show up in the future. But it's one of those series that even if you're not a big sports fan, you'll be interested in going, I think that's so and so. John C Reilly plays doctor Jerry buss, the man who owned the Lakers. And he wasn't the first choice, in fact he wasn't even really the second or third choice I don't think, but he does a great job of playing it. It's very fascinating, and again, even if you're not a sports fan, it's very entertaining. At least the first episode was, I can't wait for episode two tonight of winning time.

"At this point, what is it? What does it matter? I mean, because really, if we're looking at things and we can point to a lot of different things that cause the Lakers downfall this season, is Frank Vogel the main thing like the swapping out Frank Vogel suddenly fix a lot of stuff, enough to make this team suddenly competitive, probably not. Right? Probably not. Is he blameless? No. But that being said, if you're the Lakers, you've already gotten plenty of media backlash. Shouldn't you just try to get the most you can out of this season? And maybe that's finding out what Phil handy has? Yeah. I mean, you can blame vulgar legitimately for any day to today or in game stuff, but like the big picture things with this team, that's absolutely not his fault. Which is why I don't blame him nearly as much as other people do. I don't take that as me thinking he is innocent or hasn't had his hand in why this team has been so bad this season. But it is a fool's errand to just pin everything on him because that's not true. It's just not. Lakers Owen 6 preseason start told us everything. Somebody said, again, I tend to not put a lot of stock into that thing. We saw Lakers teams that were really good, lose a bunch of pre season games. That's happened. Rebuild, rebuild, trade LeBron, to the baddest team for picks and expiring contracts. Same with Westbrook and Davis. I mean, what bad team is trading? Let's pretend that LeBron goes to the Lakers and says, let's find a trade. Do you think LeBron is saying, hey, trade me to the thunder? Trade me to get a few picks from them trade me to thought, no, they're going to try to find if they're going to trade LeBron. They're going to find a place where he can contend and where the Lakers can get something back. Now maybe that's something isn't like the top pick in the draft or something like that. But you're not going to do LeBron wrong at this point. You're not going to just exile him to some team and say, here you go, finish out your career playing someplace that has no shot to win a championship. No, you're going to find something that gives him a chance to compete, gives you a chance to reload, rebuild whatever it is. That's the way that's going to play out. And again, I don't think that's the path we're ultimately going to go down here. Let's just remind everyone that relationships in the MBA matter quite a bit more than I think a lot of people realize. And I'm not talking about player and front office relationships. I'm talking about agents, Friends of the players. Everyone sees that. Can you imagine if the Lakers traded LeBron without his consent somewhere he didn't want to go? Be rough..

"At the end of the season. I mean, I think in a vacuum, it's probably not, but I think that there is some merit to wanting to close out the season on some sort of positive note. At least make the Lakers look sort of attractive to people that might want to sign there in the summer. Show them that you guys can still be competitive and win games at the highest level. So I'd say that I don't think they'd shut him down. And I think personally, my read on AD is that if he can play, he's going to want to play. If we're all frustrated that he has sat most of the season out, you can only probably imagine how he feels. So I think that if he's medically cleared and his condition is okay and there's no issues or worries about re injuring himself, then I think he suits up. So Russell Westbrook, we're starting to get some quotes coming in from the postgame. Oh, fine. Yeah. Russell Westbrook said that playing out the season as it is, injuries, the crowd booing them tonight can weigh on guys. Says he won't speak for anyone but says he wants to make sure we collectively do not point fingers and says that's the easy way out instead of owning what we do. It's a nice political answer. Yeah. He said he also imagines that the Lakers tendency to get down on themselves is probably on opposing teams scouting reports like if you jump all over this team, they will. Yeah, absolutely. He says, the scouting report probably says play harder than them and see what happens. I mean, it's not wrong. I just think it's funny that a scout would come to the head coach of a team and be like, yeah, we just need our guys to play a little bit harder than them. And we should have this in the bag. Yeah. Hey, just play hard. But we've talked about this, though. There have been games this season where theoretically, on paper, if the Lakers give the same level of effort as the opposing team they should win. And yet they found ways to lose these games. And now we're at a point where they're not giving that effort. And so then they're losing games. And teams are realizing, hey, all we got to do, if we go out there and play hard, we know the Lakers are always going to play hard. We can get wins just by playing harder than they play. I mean, it's a delicate tightrope tightrope to walk, right? Because you not only the baseline that you talked about needs to be there. But they also just have to play a mistake free. You can play as hard as you want. But as for this Lakers roster, specifically, the margins of the margin of error is still very, very slim. You can't turn the ball over. You can't afford to go cold from the field. I think at one point they were like, what, three of 24 from the three point line? That's disgusting. They finished the game 7 for 34. 21% by rounding up 20.6% from the three point line. But I mean, a few of those did come in garbage time..

"Lakers nation welcome in mid here, guys. We're keeping an eye on what's going on between the cards and the Raiders. The kick was upright as we started the show there. Tie game. You know Matt the optimist Peralta and I optimist. Optimism prime, we are rooting for rooting for chaos here and hopefully a tie between the Raiders and the Chargers. If nothing just to make our colleague, Ryan ward, sweat a little bit. But in basketball news, the Lakers did not have a great performance against Memphis courageous. We're going to break down that game with you guys here tonight so if you're coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Twitter, welcome in. We've got a lot of stuff to discuss from this one. John morant. Another solid performance did play. I think grizzlies tried to pull the whole well, maybe he's kinda hurt. He might not play. They rested him against the clippers yesterday. Of course, they're always going to play him against the Lakers, but the win streak is snapped. LeBron did a lot, a lot of other guys, not so much. Matt, how are you doing man? How's your focus right now? It's admittedly very split, Trevor. It's been a crazy sports day for I think every fan base. I know NFL week 18. It's been a pretty eventful day given all the playoff implications. But we are the Lakers nation, postgame show, and so we will focus on basketball for now. And I would like to point out before we say anything else about the Lakers game is that the final score was not very indicative of how the night went. That fourth quarter run by the Lakers reserves, which I'm sure we'll talk about in a little bit was nothing short of amazing really. I don't think anyone would have predicted a 21 zero run. But for basically three and a half quarters, the Lakers were getting their butts handed to by the grizzlies who I think at this point, I think people are starting to come around and realize that they are not just a feel good story anymore..

"Overall, big picture, they spent more of the game as the good version of the Lakers than as the bad version of the Lakers. And it's amazing the contrast between those two things. But overall, this game featured more good stuff from the Lakers than bad and the more as games go on. I feel like we're seeing a higher percentage of quality minutes from the Lakers than just tripping over their own two feet. We've seen sets where the Lakers look like they don't know what they're doing. Where defensively, they're completely lost on the rotation, where offensively, they get mixed up and guys are looking at each other, trying to figure out where they're supposed to be. We're starting to see that less and less, which should be the case, as the season goes on, but it's still good to see. We're starting to see more positive minutes from the Lakers..

"Somebody said James Dennis, yeah. We talked about this for a while. We talked about it all off season. James that is was he was doing the equivalent of like holding up a neon sign, do it jumping jacks. Whatever he was doing, everything he could to get the Lakers to notice him, going around Twitter, liking every post that said James henness, please sign with the Lakers. And still didn't happen. Didn't happen, but they could definitely use somebody with that kind of size. Monumentality from YouTube and missed the game, but saw the highlights seems free throw at the first half and lucky shots were the reason we lost. One in a million doesn't happen this time. Stay up Lakers nation. Yeah, I mean, look, it's the kind of thing where the clippers, if they shot, what did they end up shooting from three on the night? 46% from three. So let's say the clipper shoot a normal percentage from three. Meaning, you know, Marcus Morris doesn't bank in a three Luke canard doesn't go Berserk and they shoot 38% from three. Or is this game look like? It's a Lakers win. As is, it's a Lakers win if they just shoot a normal percentage from three. Now, part of that is, again, Vogel's defense, doubling Paul George giving up open looks from three. Part of that is on the Lakers. Part of it is also the clippers are shot ridiculously well this game. Sometimes people like to dumb it down and say it's a maker mislead. And again, that's an oversimplification. But sometimes it's kind of true where even if you play well defensively, that just kind of happens. There was one play, in fact, and I can't remember exactly how it all went down, but I remember that as the play went down, I was saying yes, yes, yes, the Lakers defensively did everything they needed to do, made the right rotations, got the stop, they gave Anthony Davis even blocked the shot and it bounced to a clipper and then they scored. Did everything they were supposed to do and it just took the wrong bounce and the clipper scored. Sometimes that happens. That's that sports. And I'm not saying that the Lakers did everything right tonight because he certainly didn't. But even when they did, do the right things, there were occasions where the clippers just made a difficult shot and then you just kind of say, okay,.

"Some people saying, embarrassing season, it's gonna be worse than last season, stuff like that. Did we forget last game? Just last game, the Lakers beat a really good team in the Miami Heat and everybody was feeling good. Let's not try not to ride the roller coaster too much, right? Yes, we celebrate a win. Look, there's some definite concerns we can get into here with the loss. If this was a ten point loss, if this was a 7 point law, something like that, I think we would feel obviously that wouldn't be good. I know a lot of people would still be upset, but it would be a little bit more understandable. I think where people get truly upset with this kind of a loss is how bad it got. It really shouldn't have gotten as bad as it did. But you could see where maybe a game like this was kind of coming, where it was in the cards. I had hoped that they would be able to stave this off and in particular was hoping that they would show some of the improvements that we saw against the heat. They would prove that those things were sustainable that those things were now locked in that were those were now part of their identity in terms of the defensive rotations the extra effort they were making. The offense of execution, unfortunately, I don't think they were, but it's hard to say a lot of those shots that they missed, were wide open. It reminded me of Lakers sons last year in the playoffs where the Lakers were just getting all of these wide open shots and just missing and missing and missing. Well person said I'm so confused on why Westbrook, the most explosive garden in the league doesn't continuously attack the paint consistently. Well part of it, Westbrook is seeing defenses that are completely collapsed into the paint and that's part of why the Lakers went small in this one, and I want to get into that too because the Lakers did have a starting lineup change in this game. But Westbrook is consistently seeing teams that are just packing the paint. So all he's seeing is a wall of bodies..

"Dot com live postgame show the Lakers did pick up the win over the rockets a close one. They almost lost at the buzzer. Too close for comfort, not what we were expecting from a Lakers rockets game but got the win nonetheless. That's the important part. We're gonna break down the game here tonight.

If you're listening to the podcast version of this, make sure you do follow us over on Apple podcasts Spotify wherever it is that you listen to podcasts. Joining me tonight is Matt the optimist Peralta. Matt, how are you doing, man? How stressful was that? Was that game? I am never going to be able to watch a Lakers game this season in peace, Trevor. This one was way too close for comfort, as evidenced by the last couple of minutes. Of course, the wind is nice, but it's one of those wins that doesn't feel too great. It shouldn't have gone disclosed and to be honest, the Lakers should have even been in this position to begin with. But, you know, the Lakers move to 5 and three, which is I believe good for third, now in the Western Conference and this early part of the season. So that's good. We're now 10% of the season away. So all things considered, things could be worse, but again, it's just one of those things where you wish the Lakers played better and didn't have to tried this hard toward. I think the frustrating part for me was it felt like against the calves and then again against the rockets, the Lakers had taken some steps forward, right? Like the last game against the rockets, there was never much of a doubt about who was going to win that game..

"But sometimes that that really is what it is, you know Sunshine it is it is and people hate it, you know, but it's like look a lot a lot of it comes down to sometimes it is just to make or misleading and sometimes you know, I used to say you could do the worst offense possible. You could take the worst possible shot. But if it goes in it's a great play. Yeah, and you know, you could play the best defense in the world and and force them in a difficult shot, but sometimes they're still going to make it. Yeah. I mean there's we see after all the games. We see the Lakers fans, you know, maybe mad at Danny Green because he shot one for 5 from 3 and one of them rimmed in and out wage. And will say yeah, but if he makes that one if that one goes down, then he's a happy person shooter for the game and and we're all happy. You know, it's that's sometimes when it comes down to I mean the game five criticism that he got was such garbage, you know, it was you know, it was listed. It was a shot. He would normally make he missed it. You gotta move on from it. That's what happens, you know, and I think you know, he I think he responded to a better than the fans didn't I think you know, everybody needs to relax. They're a little and there's a lot of pressure in the everybody going like all your trash and all that. Everybody's gotta come down a bit man. Like these guys are Pros relax agreed agreed. Sometimes we get a little too into it. There was a lot of pressure in that moment, especially wearing the Mamba jerseys and the winning for Kobe and that's that's a brutal spots. Unfortunately for him. They wanted him six. And so people I think eventually people kind of forget about about what happened there. But let's talk about the East real quick. You've got the Milwaukee Bucks. Are they just are they the top of the East again next song? Is in and we're already seeing them connected to a few players around the league a few guards that they could be be targeting. What are your thoughts on on the Milwaukee Bucks? Are they going to be a handful next season?.

"Things matter this team. Maybe you don't like maybe people are saying oh the Lakers are unlikeable because they because they're a threat and in that way. It's kind of a good thing, right? They hate tells you that they're doing something right if people around the league are saying they're not very likable that tells you that they don't want to lose this Lakers team. Think about how many people hated Kobe? Hated him. He did those Laker squads with Shaq and Kobe completely hated them wanted to see fail. So so badly. And yet they couldn't get they weren't able to put a stop to that Lakers run. That's what matters sometimes that hate tells you that you're doing something. Right? And I think that's what this little Narrative of. Oh this Lakers team is unlikable really comes down to the Lakers are doing something right but from a fan perspective. I look at this Lakers team and I think yes Celtics fans are going to hate them fans of other teams are going to hate them. They're going say, oh they're unlikable. But I look at this squad as somebody who watched the lungs odd ball Brandon Ingram Lakers, watch the whole rebuilding era watch teams. That didn't get along all that. Well watch teams that just didn't click on the court. They had personalities. That didn't mesh track coaches that didn't know how to get the best out of their players all the time. One thing after another front-office mistakes. This season for me for most Lakers fans has been a breath of fresh air because we finally seen that cohesion to me. This is felt like Lakers basketball for the first time in a long long time. So some people like Bill Simmons may see the Lakers as unlikeable. And that's okay. Maybe they don't like the Lakers but I think if you're looking at them objectively and again, I'm not objective. I'm I'm certainly biased here. But if you're looking at this team and you look at them as individuals and as a unit, I think there's a lot to admire about what they've accomplished this season and maybe it's going to lead them a championship and maybe it's not but regardless this team has accomplished some really amazing things this season and I think that's something that not enough people are really recognizing. Yes. They're good on the basketball court, but you look what they've done in terms of their chemistry their actions as human beings you look at their ability to come together as quickly as they did to stand up for each other to play for each other off of them rallied around Kentavious Caldwell-Pope when he couldn't make a lay-up in the first few games of the season and there they were there was this team propping him up supporting him. This has been a fun bunch to watch and I think there's a heck of a lot to like about this year's Los Angeles Lakers. All right guys, let me know what you think fired off in the comments down below and.

"Time, but I feel like even though though it's an entire season in L. I didn't completely erase that. I felt like the first game back after Kobe died. That's when that went away. That's when LeBron really being a cab or Lebron really being a Miami Heat was gone. LeBron is a Laker. The speech that he gave the Staple Center crowd that night to me that pushed LeBron into the family of Lakers Nation. Anybody who was holding out at that point now needed to see LeBron as one of our own people talk about Anthony Davis, you know, you surrendered all these young assets. He's not a guy that you drafted. Did they draft Shack? Did they draft Wilt Chamberlain? Did they offer Kareem? No. That's not historically the way Lakers have built teams. And maybe we were spoiled by Kobe all along. Right and we saw Kobe even though Kobe technically was traded for but we saw Kobe from an eighteen-year-old kid did grow up become a man become a father become an MVP become a champion. All of these things happened before our eyes. That's not the norm though. That's not the normal relationship between a fan base and a player and that's what makes Kobe Kobe. That's why nobody's ever going to replace them. LeBron was never brought in to replace him. Anthony Davis wasn't brought into her. Mom Ko B. Nobody's going to do that. And yet we still have some fans who look at LeBron as this Outsider. Look at Anthony Davis as an outsider because the Lakers had to trade for him know of anything. I think what they've had to go through this season from stopping due to covid-19. But this is a likable Squad people like The Underdogs was the likelihood that this Lakers team would come together and day one. They would have the chemistry that they showed that they would be able to work together as a unit that everybody would understand their role right from the get-go How likely was that to happen? I was in predicting and I didn't see anybody else who was who was thinking that the Lakers were going to be the number one seed in the Western Conference. Most people said it was going to take a lot it was going to take some building. There were going to be some bumps in the road some trials and tribulations in order to get where they are right now. Chemistry isn't something that just magically comes together when you put enough talented people on One Squad we've seen that we know it we've lived through that we lived through the Kobe Dwight Powell Steve Nash voelker's that happened. We know that sometimes all the talent of world doesn't matter if the chemistry is not there and yet this Laker Squad found a way to find chemistry right away home and I think that's impressive and then you look at the individual stories..

"Home for everything Lakers. And today. I want to talk to you a little bit about comment that was made about your Lakers recently and it got me thinking about a few different things that involve the Lakers and how likeable they actually are in the general NBA audience little bit different format than our typical YouTube videos here. Usually there's some bit of news that I'm going to break down. You know this player said this and is how it applies to the Lakers. We look at everything through purple and gold lenses. You guys hear me say that all the time but today this is going to be almost more mini podcast format before I dive into these comments though. Quick reminder do subscribe right here to the Lakers Nation YouTube channel and don't forget bring that notification Bell right over there. All right. So Bill Simmons of the Rings who let me preface this by saying that I like Bill Simmons. I would not be sitting here right now if it weren't for Bill Simmons his writing Captivate wage. When he was with ESPN as soon as he published something new it was an automatic drop what you're doing sit down and read this I loved his style of writing. I really appreciated what he did there were times when I tried to emulate Bill Simmons style as a as writer and so he was somebody who captivated me very early and got me involved in this and this whole business he along with several other people like Mark Steyn also have ESPN who had read all the time and reading these guys coming up it made me want to be like them and want to emulate their lifestyle and their their level of analysis and it made me push to make myself better and better and better and so I don't want to disparage Bill Simmons too much or anything here, but he is known as a Celtic song writing me. That's that's where he grew up. That's what he knows. He's in L now, but he knows the Boston Celtics, right? Like that's that's his team and that's fine. Right? We're obviously not going to agree with that, but he made some comments about the Lakers jersey. Is podcast and by the way, I like him a lot better as a writer than I do as a TV personality or has a podcast. I'm not saying he's bad at those things by any means but I'm just saying he's that good of a writer off but on his podcast he made a comment about how the Lakers are just not likeable and you look at the four teams that are left. You look at the Miami Heat you look the Boston Celtics you look at the Denver Nuggets and the Lakers and Simmons says, oh it's the Lakers that are constantly complaining about calls and all of this stuff and I just don't agree and obviously I'm going to be biased. Like I said, we look at everything through purple and gold mines here. This is my my job is to cover the Lakers and if it wasn't I would still be paying attention to Lakers basketball because I grew up around this team. I'm very fortunate that I get to cover the team that I legitimately long and I hope that comes out and everything that I do but Simmons taking a shot at the Lakers now, It just felt a little bit flat to me. It bothered me a little bit because of what this team has done this season because of the challenges this team has overcome and forget it..
