So we took your phone calls, Got your thoughts? I'm not upset that Johannes got the award. Not you think about the M V P and what it's been for past 30 years. It's like OK, take the best team in the regular season. Take the best player on that team, and there you have it. The M V P has not always going to the best player.

"Cracker Barrel is adding alcohol to the menu. So there you go, Dan no longer have to keep sneaking it in there. Thank you. Thank you Cracker barrel for answering all of my letters. What's going on with the pipe in your mouth. Bob Ryan joins us Now. Boston Globe We've got Celtics and heat Wednesday. Bob Ryan is a basketball historian. He knows Mohr than you can possibly imagine about this sport. I'm genuinely curious whether you even like what's happening right now, With all the three point shooting, Bob is such a distortion. Of the reasons that you know the reasons the Celtics were winning many, many years ago. I'll try to be as polite as possible. It is a distorted game. The game has been completely distorted beyond into something very different by the reliance on the three point shot. And I don't enjoy it visually, aesthetically as much as I once did. It doesn't mean I don't like basketball at all. But it is a different game, and I'm having a hard time accommodating myself to it. That's the truth. Bob. How do you feel about the lack of fans? Has that affected your viewing experience? It doesn't feel like a really title runs immediately. I think they've done a remarkable job in both football and basketball, particularly in basketball. I can't speak for hockey in recreating a faux atmosphere to the degree that they have amused by the virtual fans. I think the noise a cz thing has been intriguing. I salute them. I think that they've done this good a job as anyone could have asked him to do two to simulate not having fans. Of course it's not the same. But I do think that they deserve a commendation for their effort, Who's better? Boston or Miami? I think the Celtics were inherently talented with Mohr. Top shelf players, But that doesn't mean you're going to win this series. Uh, necessarily, but they're back in it. You know, I've seen everything and all these years except the No. Three in basketball. That's the one sport. We've had it in hockey. We've had it now in baseball. But we've never had it in basketball coming back. Most three, so wouldn't shouldn't be a big shock. Anybody at this bar has come back to win, but I think I'll put it this way guys if they each play their a game, a plus game. The Celtics. A plus game is better than Miami's. But that doesn't mean that they will play that game. The game three result is about as predictable his basketball gets, is it not? Ordinarily when it comes to matters of back coming back home, you know if you're up to, but you're now coming back home. But that's off the board now because there is no home, I and there was a different dynamic here due to the Celtic explosion locker room fracas. Whatever did actually take place after games? That stuff silly, Bob. You've been covering the sports so long. Isn't that stuff? Silly? Silly. Time. I? No, no, no, really. I mean, here's the situation. I think they have a belief. I think they felt they weren't playing up. Did they? But I guess it was Marcus Smart. Thought that we weren't playing up to their potential and stop. Going around and let's go. Let's get going now. He, of course, was not guiltless. See, he had a sloppy passing there that Butler picked off and he wasn't 100% blameless there. But but I don't know. I everyone so why they're still Dan. They're not robots. They're still fallible human beings. I think we never should never lose sight of. I understand. But Bob Jalen Brown beam or aggressive in a Game three doesn't happen because Marcus Smart bothered him or yelled in him. That happened because Jason Tatum is really good and Game three. When a better team is down onto you get desperation at the rim throughout the history of the sport, it's not cause market smart yelled at him. Well, we need it's all individual personalities. And Jace Jayson Tatum apparently needs a little bit of reminder about what its full capabilities are. Sometimes that's all. And maybe that was the thing that did it. No, I I see where you're going, But I'm just going to say it's It's not silly, is it? It's not out of. It's nothing we haven't seen before. Some somewhere along the way on and all sports and even baseball, which is not the ultimate non team sport. In terms of you know how it's put together. You still see that emotion comes into it. Now you write about the desperation of 02. I mean, that's clear. You know you don't and then basketball everyone to get down. 03, but you got to perform. You got to put the ball on the bed, the emotional all you want, but you got to put the ball in the basket They went out with for 20 Point scores on DH. They did play, you know, and I didn't have to. Go out a way to solve that zone defense and that's all. I mean, All I'm saying is, there's always however you want it happened. The fact is that that they had to win that game they had when they came in and save the serious Bobby in the basketball historian that you are, you know more about basketball than at all of us. Who would you compare? Jason Tatum, too. Well, we're now in a new era of 6 10 guys that do stuff that we used to. But that wasn't possible. Much more than that. 66. I don't know if I'm trying to think now a poor man. Here you go. A poor man's Kevin Durant. Take its taking their on actually may be a better passer already. But you know, Durant is a proven stud in the biggest Us with the biggest spotlight on him. Tatum has been proven to be that, but that's the physical talent that he possesses to be the next Kevin Durant, right. Still, Gods is dancing around the studio. Can you explain? Poor man's to him? Because I don't think that he understand what he's got in there. What Poor man's Kevin, it means not ready needs not Kevin Durant. Close is not yet It was my Nia than that on and off the top of my head. I wasn't prepared for that question, but suddenly it occurred to me. You know the size, the dexterity, the ball handling ability that the shot range you know, and the ability to go to the basket worked or shoot a developing into a good defensive player, he said. He's becoming an excellent passer. That's that was my instant answer. Maybe upon further analysis. I think somebody else now stay right there. The band block. Where does it rank At the risk of offending your Bill Russell shrunk their first of all, there's two kinds of great blocks. It's the greatest block of its kind in context that I have ever seen in my life. That is the you ate. What? You ate Duncan on me Block right. That's opposed to the run down. Everybody talks about the LeBron James block against Agudelo, which they should It was. It was a contextual thing in the finals. It was a great great play. I reminded people or tried to remind him at the time. Yes, absolutely fantastic play Bill Russell made it. No one knows how many times including one famous one. They're talking about the greatest blocks of all time. And you talk to people who get to living breathing guys where they are cruising and heights and both completely in command of their faculties that ages 90 to 86, respectively. The greatest play they've ever seen in their lives, was built for running down Jack Coleman in this game seven of the 1957 finals when Russell having just completed a basket at the taken the momentum, a fast break layup, taking off before ran down a very good athlete with a half court spot and blocked the shot to save the game That is the greatest place in the history of the N B a finals and LeBron James is his second..

Sheriff issues challenge to LeBron James after deputies ambushed

"Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva making new comments today about the ambush shooting of two of his deputies in Compton over the weekend on Fox News. He repeated his challenge for Lakers star LeBron James to match the $200,000 in reward money already offered to help catch the gunman behind the attack. The sheriff says he thinks LeBron must take ownership of his words that black people feel hunted and should see you. This is a bigger problem of violence, overall, doing their own jobs through their business content. Really, It was a place that That was a phone. He did write that plane. Pastor Michael Fisher of the Greater Zion Church family in Compton tells Kayo next that he thinks the sheriff could do a better job of conveying compassion for the community. Should avoid being one sided. Well, maybe he didn't like how the bronze said it and maybe he didn't like what LeBron said. He has to admit that there is a problem. In the sheriff's department that I pray, hopefully under give leadership he will help us to be a two man. Pastor Fischer tells us he wants an advisory council set up to help relations between the Compton sheriff's Station and the local community.

So yeah. Anthony Davis last not totally clutch. Like you said. I think LeBron is huge for Anthony Davis Confidence and New Orleans. You know, he was kind of passive. At times. I think we haven't seen as much of that this year with him. It was great to see him hit that shot. Last night. He screened Kobe as he made the shot, like in the days to propel, you know, Kobe That was awesome. I love the mama jerseys. But honestly, like I'm thinking about this finals coming up, and I don't see then were even making this a series. So I'm thinking Miami versus Versus the Lakers man. I'm thinking LeBron James against Erik Spoelstra, the first team that he won his first title with, I think, and it's going to be epic. And to me, the whole bubble situation goes back to the Mamba mentality in the hole. Being in the in the in the in the gutter. You know what I mean? Being in the in the tunnel being Mama mentality, you know, focused on on a goal, and I think it really hits on the whole narrative about This being the Lakers season to honor Coby and on to see LeBron Go against the he and man I really think that he theme is coming. I think they are legit. I think they have won through a is good at any one through a in the entire NBA and man, I think it's just going to be amazing. I'm just really looking forward to the finals. I think this this series is over. I think the Celtics have a chance against the he I'm just really looking forward to the finals, Man. I'll hang up and listen to what you have to say. Well, thank you so much. Tyler for call enough from Knoxville. I appreciate con words as well Know, I agree with you. I mean, is only but so much magic that the Nuggets can have, and it's really fitting When Anthony Davis is yelling, Coby pretty much in the game. And I think yes, this the Lakers have Ah, tuo Siri's lead Don't expect for them to go up 31 and the and then the blow it I think the magic is done for the Nuggets will continue this conversation. We have more time to talk about basketball, but I do want to get back to football and talking about Ah, weak to we're going to take a break.

By this lone gunman. It is stunning what these two went through, particularly The female Deputy whose name was Claudia at putting our She survived the ambush. She saved the life of her partner. She's 31 years. Only former librarian who just graduated the sheriff's Academy last year. She was struck in the jaw during Saturday's shooting. She was in stable condition in hospital.

"Career when I left, I just want to be. I don't want to be able to pee for championship. You didn't know that. You know, almost like this comes with it. Especially being at Lake biggest market in basketball. Listen. Anthony Davis. Has never been this deep into the playoffs in his entire career. This is a type of thing. I know you can be a child. You can be a kid you can think about game winning shots. About being able to actually hit one B think about hitting a game winning shot for the Los Angeles Lakers. You know, even when you get paid millions of bucks moments like these are things you dream about as a child. Especially if you legitimately have N B, a aspirations and hoop dreams. LeBron James actually said. The biggest thing missing. From that. Anthony Davis three pointer. Was for the crowd and Staples Center toe actually be ableto witness and feel what Anthony Davis did. And it might be a game winner. It might have been something that was celebrated on the sideline and players were flying all over the place. And it was great to watch the Lakers have some fun. But LeBron brings up an excellent point. Our fans weren't even there. And that that may not be something we see until next season. Let's see if we can go ahead and get these fans back, depending on when the season gets going. Still quite a few questions to figure out there. But Frank Vogel, coach of the Lakers, You actually might. Will win the title. How about that? We know Jason Kidd's been sitting next to him all season long, probably trying to figure out how he can get in on the action. Frank Vogel. He knows how special that game when it was for Anthony Davis. Listen. We want everybody what Kobe Bryant stood for, you know, and and honor his memory. And obviously another certain games. We're going to feel it a little bit more than others. You know, when we have that uniform on, I think we feel it more than others. And, um No, that's that's a shot. Kobe Bryant would hit Now, so to me, You know it coming off. You know that just flying through the wing like that the cats and shoot with the game on the line and the biggest moment of our season. Nothing but net mama shop. I like it. That's a mamba shot. I didn't think I'd hear our Frank Vogel ever say anything like that. But That's pretty cool. And it also is. AH is a nice reminder. That the Lakers are playing this season out, not just for themselves. But honor Kobe Bryant. Which I think is a pretty cool thing. And we asked fans and you don't have to be a Laker fan. But you can. You can be pretty jaded Just when you think about the calendar. No Kobe Bryant. Was was lost. Early this year. Kobe Bryant was lost in February of this year. It's that's that That wasn't years ago. This is fresh. And you really have to think about how close he wass. To the guys who are out there representing and playing for him, whether it's knowing them in passing Knowing that he is a legend for the Lakers. But in the case of the two superstars and Anthony Davis and primarily LeBron James, just a relationship that was there And I will tell you the closest I have seen their relationships dates back to the Olympics in London, 2012. I was fortunate enough to have been out to the London Olympics. YouTube at the Tom invited me out to cover everything that was going on, and I had a chance for the first time in my lifetime to really be able to see how USA basketball team operates, had a chance to The gold to some of the practices and, Yeah, I would. I would go to all Star games and you see, it's a lot of fun and games and players going to parties and going to practice and media availability. But it's a different thing when it's team USA. And this is not the 24 best players or the 30 best players. This is this is the best of the best. And when you see guys in their prime and even in their scent You know you're Kobe's your LeBron's and Carmelo's. It's like, Damn look at who's here. And I actually remember Anthony Davis being the youngest guy on that squad and Anthony Davis being the youngest dude who's basically thrown in because of his college success. And then you would see. You know Kobe Bryant, This is Colby. Even in 2012. He's still a little bit closer to coming off of those two championship victories. People remember him for what he did, Which shack? And here he is, team use a basketball. Anthony Davis. Oh, yeah, he had a relationship with Kobe Bryant. LeBron James definitely had a relationship would Kobe you know you reached the top of your profession like that you are in Rarified air as to who? What and how anybody's going to relate to you? There's no doubt you want to think about phenoms and basketball. What? What? What phenoms have we missed? Who's bigger? Coming out of of being a child. Then Kobe Bryant and then LeBron James. Who has seemingly in my opinion surpassed any of the expectations that were laid out in front of him. So don't take for granted. What the Los Angeles Lakers are playing for. That's not to say that this is a given. It's not to say because of the unfortunate passing of Kobe Bryant. This is a guinea for the Lakers..

"Alex being away that making some critical comments about LeBron James this morning came in an interview on Fox as the sheriff repeated his call for LeBron to contribute money to the reward. Which is about $200,000 in the hunt for the person who ambush those deputies in Compton Sheriff says he thinks the MBA star has the wrong view of law enforcement. You need to take some warship of exactly what he said. In terms of Rafa getting ideas that people are being planted everywhere because the color skin I think the case we need to hold those are accountable for breaking the law the long before we cross the line, then we have now is a bigger from violence.

Challenged LeBron to match in double the reward money being offered for information on the gunman who ambushed and shot a couple of deputies over the weekend. Yep, he said the reward money has reached 175,000 so far, which is a combination of donations that $100,000 from the county and then $75,000 from to private individuals. The sheriff says, Listen, this challenge is to LeBron James. I want you to match that and double that reward. I know you care about law enforcement. You expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African American community, and I appreciate that, the sheriff said, but likewise. We need to appreciate the reunite that respect for life goes across all professions. LeBron, As you know, has been pretty vocal ahs faras professional athletes, athletes go and speaking out on Social issues to condemn police misconduct assault came after Jacob Blake was shot multiple times by the officers in Wisconsin in Kenosha last month.

The Return of Playoff Rondo

The Return of Playoff Rondo

"So Bill Game One against Houston was Rozan rondos first game nearly six months. Can you break down everything that he went through with injuries? Yeah. It was interesting because this is a guy who has been slowly it feels like kind of breaking down as he's gotten older he had two broken fingers on his right hand last year his first year with the Lakers. This year he had a calf injury. He had an aversion fracture in his right ring finger and this is all before we get to March and the shutdown from the pandemic. So the Lakers are off for four months they go to. ORLANDO. Rajon Rondo is with the team their first practice inside the bubble Lakers guard Rajon Rondo has suffered a broken right thumb in. He's expected to return to full basketball activities in six to eight weeks, he's going to undergo surgery to repair the fact fracture this week. So he leaves the bubble has surgery. He's out for another six weeks or so the Lakers have a first round series against the Blazers Rondo, comes back to the bubble and is actually cleared to play for game three against the Portland Trailblazers, he's on the court getting ready. For that Game Rondo was listed as active tonight for the Lakers but was a late scratch with back spasms that happened. So, by the time, we got to game one of the second round against the rockets. There was kind of this sense of porcelain Rondo forget about it what level, but is he just going to be healthy enough to play and be able to stay healthy to make a contribution to this team? What does he had to say about all of these injuries he basically downplayed the injuries and said that these are the sorts of things that are going to frustrate. Anyone was very frustrating injury and step back I'm my career fourteen years have. Everything happens for a reason. Obsolete man says talks we. Still for the moment but the timing of this latest injury, the broken thumb and the back spasms I think particularly frustrating for him because this is a guy whose entire reputation and career is built on playoff performance on being a guy who really ramps it up in the postseason. Early, in his career uses a second your point guard with the Celtics out of Kentucky playing with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Paul. Pierce and he ended up playing an instrumental role. You remember the two thousand, eight finals against the Lakers decisive blowout game. You know he had twenty one points against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers twenty one point seven rebounds eight assists six steals to give the Celtics a championship for that story franchises nearly ovation barrage. You've seen it win Lebron was in Miami. If you remember game three of these conference semi finals Rondo dislocated his elbow. Oh. Wow. Left arm hyper-extended boy. Didn't see it on that I replay certainly. Saw It there. When back to the locker room pop back in came back onto the court to help the Celtics with game. Time is pad. Rajon Rondo expired the crowd rare Boston. We've seen it time and time again in his career in these big moments, it's not superhuman. But when you take a player who is seen as a high level, but not superstar player can a hitting that superstar switch when the playoffs come then obviously a legend starts to grow. And for him did have another injury right when the Lakers were expecting to get him at his best was extremely frustrating. But the timing actually ended up working out he made it back for the second round series against the rockets and as we've seen was really no worse for the wear the Lakers got blown out by the rockets in game one. They're all going to be in a good mood tonight as the Houston Rockets when it one twelve to ninety seven. But after that, they rattled off four straight wins how much credit do you think Rondo deserves further taking that series. So easily I think you could make an argument that without Rajon Rondo certainly that the Lakers wouldn't have off the next four wins, but he was instrumental in games two and three and four also, but specifically games two and three with his performance in the fourth quarter game too. He knocked down a late jump shot to kind of hold off the rockets and what was a close game Rondo two. Point jump shot that's Rajon Rondo with a bucket right there ten points nine assists for Rondo and then engaged three. He was actually the guy who is Lebron James on the bench to start the fourth quarter in what was a close game at the start of that period he either scored or assisted on Lakers I eight possessions of that quarter to help kind of turn what had been another tight close game into a rout for the Lakers. Rondo. He'll three and Rondo hits another one largest laker lead tonight Rondo has. Been Spectacular and a nice Lee for Kuzma. This is sort of how his reputation has been built. But this also is kind of out of line with the way he's played for the Lakers over his first two years. He hasn't been the guy who has come up in the big moments or been clutch. You've seen the decline of a player who's in his mid thirties and has been in the League for fourteen years, but there has always been this belief from the Lakers that when the playoffs come that he. Would step up and have those sort of vintage Rondo performances and so what you saw was sort of this return to form that the Lakers have always promised would be there and you saw not only offensively. But also defensively when Houston started to make runs, it was Rajon Rondo who was picking up James Harden full court and pestering him into turnovers they double team Arden and get a steal and another round of bucket. That's a ten old laker run hard was trying to go behind the back Rondo was right there. In both game two in game three second-half possessions where rondos picking up James Harden. The former MVP of the league, hounding him into a turnover, taking his pocket and going the other way for layup that completely shifted momentum and those both are Lakers win. So when you look at what Rondo did in those two games, I, think you could easily say that the Lakers could have been down two. Oh, two one in the series instead of kind of romping to a five game series victory.

Houston Rockets fail to stave-off elimination in loss to the Los Angeles Lakers

"So, there's a whole list of ways to For a whole host of the culprits here. Right IF PEOPLE WANNA start scapegoating or pointing fingers at the reason for the rockets. Quick Demise. This postseason I might point to James Harden just say they're fundamentally flawed because of the the style that he plays and how how hardened centric they are that I will always key on that. I but there is the Russ Hardin experiment. There's small ball itself. There's the catch all analytics failed that there's there's the camp out there who wanted to blame analytics or Darrell Blame Mike Dan Tony. It's about maybe it's about his system although I don't think they were running what Mike is usually known for. Is there one thing that stands out to you? That was that the primary culprit for why they failed this particular postseason? Well I'll answer that two ways first and foremost is that it's very hard to win an NBA championship especially coming out of the Western conference I think people forget that think how you have to beat our. You know now with Lebron James Who's arguably the best player in the League one of the best of all time he is here, Wilde Leonard whose I believe has the best. Regular season win percentage in the NBA history who may be on the verge of leading his third different team to an NBA championship is the best player he's out here and the no. Forget the team in the bay that went to the finals five years in a row they're going to be back next year and how are those are the guys you have to just to get To the NBA finals out of the West. So I think in our winner, take all society it's easy to forget that as I mentioned, I think the rockets have been arguably the second best team in the NBA over the last four five years So they are close however to answer your question more directly. The biggest concern I have like I said is on the biggest stage look. Who sometimes as an executive coach or player, and sometimes it's not that's what happened to him a few years ago in game seven when they missed twenty seven consecutive threes or whatever it was that's part of the deal that way this thing goes the way it shouldn't go. Howard. If you'RE GONNA WANNA win anything at a high level is you always have to try you always have to compete. You always have to give your best effort. Now can Houston do that? Can they answer those questions that remains to be seen and unfortunately were they new head coach coming in? I think to some extent Howard whenever next season starts it doesn't really matter what they. Do in the regular season you and I both think the Houston Rockets as you know currently constructed or very likely to be playoff team again, the western conference but the questions are going to start again when they get to the playoffs and frankly I don't think they'll be able to answer those questions until the playoffs are ending as far as did they show up and compete every night because we have two examples in the last four years where they haven't done that in the big stage and has a lot of people myself included scratching their head as far as you know why James Harden, his teammates didn't even try to rise to the occasion. Yeah it's. You lay it out correctly or I would agree with the way you laid out, which is as you start looking forward. Immediately you have to think about. All right. Well, who who are we chasing and if we assume everything stays static that Lebron Anthony Davis are still together that Paul, George is still together. The nuggets aren't going anywhere. So there's a three teams at the top. Already, the warriors could very easily and should jump back into the top four. Even Gotten to Utah or the rising mavericks or anything else yet, and at best the rockets are V before we've even gotten through this season much less the off season and getting next. Look ahead like do we know how do we? How do you forecast them's anything better than that, and that's fine. If you're young team on the rise, if you're the mavericks and you look out an next year source, maybe somewhere in the four, five, six range. That's fine. You're young team on the rise you're you're you're building as you go the rockets are you know you're built around two stars in their early thirties? And if you're if you're not going forward, then you're going backward the you're sliding and I don't know that the flexibility is there to to really rebuild around those two guys on the fly here. So I don't know whether assuming darryl still in the job because there's been doubts about that too. But whatever. Whatever the Front Office does this off-season I I do not envy especially in an Arrow or in a year with potentially a shrinking cap with the little or two zero flexibility I don't I just don't know where they go from here unless you go and start entertaining the extremes and that's trading the stars and that that might be even harder. So maybe they have no choice but to just stay on the path, try to find some bargains and hope for the best I

Thrilling Raptors and Celtics series heading to a game 7

"I want to switch gears. Now to the Toronto Raptors game versus the Boston Celtics obviously, it was gained six I really thought the Celtics were closed. One out. There are a lot of questionable calls this game specifically at the end of regulation there was a no call on a Kemba Walker left and I was clearly a foul, the Raptors one, one, twenty, five, the one, twenty, two in. A double overtime game to push this series to seven games. The best player was Kyle lowry man played fifty three minutes got thirty point three, hundred, thirty, three points, eight rebounds six assists absolutely incredible employed twenty-one Norman Powell had twenty three. He had a big and one after a steal one of the big places the game on the Boston Celtics side Marcus Smart. Twenty three he's been electric lately. Jaylen. Brown continues to improve after that bad game two games ago. He's at back to back bounce back game thirty, one points, sixteen rebounds and two assists Tatum at twenty, nine and fourteen and nine almost twenty nine point triple double ties with eighteen and seven Kemba. Walker was really the only no show for the Boston Celtics, tonight. At Five, points seven assists to eleven from the field and fifty one minutes. Only five points that's abysmal for Kemba. Walker. Especially going into team that I don't really necessarily think somebody that can guard him a guy like, Caldera. Maybe for advance leak got the assignment a couple of times and a couple possessions I understand that but I don't know. Big Win for the Toronto Raptors I really do believe this game simplicitas if I told you from the beginning of the series of toss up obviously the Celtics went up to all Toronto responded to go to tie it to to Boston got a big game five victory I thought that would really seal the series I thought the Celtics would win tonight the close up at the rafters just won't quit man they won't die one of the scrappy EST teams in the NBA. One. Of the best defensive teams than the to hold a team to what only one hundred and what twenty two points in double overtime keep in mind in double overtime. That's impressive. That's playing. Basketball essentially more that's playing what? No about five quarts of basketball the hold somebody to one hundred, twenty, two points is impressive stuff. Can they get it done and gained seven? I'm not sure I'm still going to have to take the Celtics I. Think the Celtics probably should have won this game I thought for a majority of the game. They were the better team and again that no call and Kemba Walker at the end of regulation was a brutal. No call I thought two free throws, and then obviously maybe Toronto a game winner I game tire and not sure. Again Kemba Walker should have gone two free throws at the end of the game. My opinion was a close one but all is fair in love and war the referees for pretty much every game are always going to be considered bad right. Every single playoff game fans are going to have a disagreement with it but specifically, that can no call that was poor that was a bad call.

LeBron James Has Another Block Party Against Rockets

"Breaking news, this morning scale, and it is good news especially if you're a Houston Rockets Fan. Robert Covington had that's scary fall last night where he was pushed by cow cruised into the hip of Anthony Davis. He was bleeding from his mouth. He was down on the court. The good news scall- is he he's not in the concussion protocol obviously I imagine he's a bit sore this morning, but it looks like he'll be ready to for game four tomorrow night. Yeah. I'm actually really looking forward to game four because Houston Rockets do some things well, Russell Westbrook finding his rhythm attacking the basket I. We said this on the mini pod. I think the. Houston Rockets should be a little optimistic about this. If we all understand that if Lebron's plays like this or even Bronco plays like this liquors are going to be tough to be s for anybody that's the that's including the clippers including Miami or Boston or Toronto whoever that is vintage Lebron. The question is, can he sustain that and it's his age that's going to be tough but the Houston Rockets they found some things they got to figure out their defense but offensively, I think they have a magic formula that could beat the Lakers if they make some shots and move the ball better. I think. So as well the Lakers won the game last night behind a classic Lebron James Performance Lebron had thirty six points, seven rebounds, five assists. He also had four blocks Gal and that's the amazing thing to me. It's not that he's big. He's strong. He's smart. We know that you know you WanNa iron people who just blow up Lebron for any little thing he does on what scale to me in your. Seventeen at thirty five years old with as many games as he's played the athleticism that he still has that lobby last night from Alex, Caruso with a one-handed dunks look to me like he was well above the square on that, and then the timing on the chase down walks that is certainly impressive and it's also certainly unique for a guy in his mid thirties who's played as many minutes as Lebron James says. Yeah, and typically. Data old you all the answers you've seen every defense you're not overwhelmed by anything. Your body is sort of started to give out I I'm not. He's not where he was when he was in Miami way back wind there's a lot of miles on that, but he his his ten percent drop off or whatever you WANNA call it fifteen percent drop off is. You you can't see it because the other stuff that he does he still has the great passing game is came lot easier to him now than it did before I think he could conserve his energy a whole lot better than he did back in the day. I, don't think he has to expend as much because he's a lot smarter on the floor and he. Relies on guys like Anthony Davis but I. I'm always impressed when the broncos into like old the Bron- mode. I just I. I kind of sometimes forget that he's able to do that and I know it always happens but I just use the seventeen years in your thirty five years old. You shouldn't be able to recover just one day in between and get out there and have that performance. So once again I think you know using father time as the thing that's most undefeated. Can he be great again in game four Kenny be great. Again in game five I don't know those answers, but whatever he's doing is absolutely working.

LeBron becomes all-time leader in playoff wins

"If you remember back to Sunday, Game two of the Western Conference finals. Lakers gave up 41 points in the third quarter before they were able to clamp down defensively, allowing the Rockets to score just 17 in that fourth quarter. Get on Tuesday. It would be a strong fourth quarter. That proves to be the difference for Ella. LeBron James wind up having a huge first half 29 points, but the Lakers were actually trailing at the break. L. A would hold the Rockets to just 18 points in the third. Turning things up defensively, one of the best defensive teams all year that turned it up the Rockets to 22% shooting in the second half. There's another turnover. Anthony Davis, with the steal handed back to Gordon, Front left drives past LeBron layup blocked by James from behind LeBron James with a great block. Gordon thought he was buying me ran down from the back. Another block for James on a runner by harden LeBron James, with two monster blocks 54 Covington to Rivers Wing left us with a rim up on underway Blood by James and the stick that won't count. It comes after the red light was lit. And LeBron with three monster blocks in the corner. We're tied going before the difference in this one. It was a 64 point first half With rockets. Scored 33 points in the first quarter. 31 in the second But just 38 points total. In the second half of the Lakers. Clamping down on defense would also Their foot on the accelerator on offense. Morris swinging Rondo opened three Ling right, Got another one playoff. Rondo is here tonight in Game three. Four point lead for the Los Angeles Lakers. That's 12 points. Ferrando as a timeout is called by Mike D'Antoni governs and threw it away. Trying to find a friend on the left sideline. Rondo working right side before with Davis. Hi, Lobb. Davis caught way right off the jab. Step shoots for two and dropped it in 26 15 for Anthony Davis early, but it's a dagger a little bag. Now, with a minute to play Rondo around the angle Street left side of the room past the diving Kuzma catches and lays it in over the front iron and the Rockets have a look to him that they know they're probably done with under a minute to play, and the short answer would be Yes, The rockets were done at that point. The game was here on ESPN radio Lakers would close it out when it by 10 1 12 102 Lakers taking a 21 Siri's lead Lakers out of 21 to 8. Run. To start the fourth quarter after as we heard, the game was tied heading to the fourth LeBron James 162nd career playoff victory. That's the most all time he spoke with TNT, do what it takes to win both the defense and I know I say that a lot, but it was just the truth. My teammates looks for me to do a little bit of everything, and tonight was another opportunity for me to help and I was happy. I was able to come through for us tonight. LeBron at another milestone to your resume, passing Derek Fisher becoming the NBA's all time leader in a playoff wins. I know you have said time and time again, you'll reflect on those milestones later. To play at the level you're playing at and achieve that milestone in your 17. What does that say about what we're trying to accomplish? It says that I played with a lot of great teams says that I played a lot of great teammates made some great coaches in Cleveland in Miami and now here in Los Angeles, you don't get those wins without teammates so on the coaching staff prepares and do all the preparation Behind the scenes video coordinators. The guys will help rebound the basketballs force assistant coaches that trainers the athletic staff on its own. So it doesn't happen without the support of castes. And it's why I'm able to stay here with this achievement. But it's all about the three organizations. I've been with calves, the heat and not the Lakers. Because without them, I wouldn't be in this position. Speaking of the way you're supporting cast played tonight. Defensively, particularly in that second half. What did you guys find that allowed you to lock into Rockets offense. We know in the first half going into halftime that we didn't play our best. Defensively. We allowed him to get into the lane. Without contest. We allowed him to hit some threes. What I'll contest are rotations was slow. So when we went to the locker room, we watch some film. And we had conversation right away on what we can do in the second half to get better and be better, and we was able to transfer it into the second round. Last thing I'll ask you about. I know Coach Vogel keeps on telling us That he was going to use the memory of Kobe Bryant to fuel this playoff run and continue to talk to the team about it. How have you channeled that to motivate you through this run through the postseason in this most unique environment? Then today, we just so we make him and his family proud, and that's all it's about anybody's ever step foot and put on the Lakers jersey we hoped would make them proud as well. From Kobe all the way down to everybody's ever played in Los Angeles have been a part of Los Angeles Lakers organization. That's what we're trying to do. It means the tradition here and it's our responsibility when loser draw toe hold out without most responsibility and utmost respect, and, you know, doctor Dr Buss will want as well. Loser draw. This one turned out to be a win for the Lakers by 10. They take a 21 Siri's lead, LeBron finishing with 36 points, 29 of which came in the first half. You heard him touch on the defensive adjustments that the Lakers made at halftime. As well. Then they came out and turned up the intensity on the defensive end Lakers finishing with six blocks Houston had one came from Russell Westbrook late in the game,

"We went to break we spent some time talking about the Los Angeles Lakers and their loss tonight. The Houston Rockets wiped them out 1 12 to 97. The Lakers have only played two games in the past 11 days. The Houston Rockets they play two days ago. James Harden wakes up on offense has 36 points. Our Gordon 23 Russell Westbrook. 24 points. He led the rockets and curse words. OK. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers, they look like the Lakers from Game one against Portland. LeBron has 28 rebounds, seven assists. Anthony Davis 25 points, 14 rebounds and in Alex Caruso, the next high score 14 points That's not going to get the job done. A matter of fact. LeBron James. He had some reasons as to why the Lakers lost this game one. Listen, So what LeBron had to say? I think it's speed on play. What? Ah, a lot of speed, obviously starting with the head of the snake and rust. They put a lot of speed Oval Office, Lee and defensively. And you can watch it on film. You can see it on film. Until you get out there. You get a feel for on. That's what we did tonight. We've got a feel for their speed. We got a feel for their speed. Okay, We've had some callers who called me up and said, Oh, well, LeBron is just feeling amount made it sound like, you know, he's just trying to see what goes on. Oh, yeah, They haven't played a lot. What do you want Name trying to give no game up. This guy's trying to play to win. And yet now they'll adjust and we'll see what happens game too. I don't think it'll be the same result. And we had a caller before we went to break Who said, you know, LeBron starting five years old. We know he's a freak of nature, but he's probably pacing himself. No Ah! He was pacing himself by the time he got in the bubble. We saw how bad the Lakers looked. What is he going to do? Pace himself all the way to the end behind ALS? I don't think that's the case. Come on. I was a competitive basketball player at the highest level one of the greatest of all time. Everybody has to pace themselves, but LeBron James played 37 minutes tonight. I'm not goingto say that he's just out there going through the motions just to see what happens and know that. Oh, well, if we play weaken, you know I can conserve some energy. No. That's not going to get you to the finals. It's not happening.

Sports and gaming. Talent Division. Justin. Welcome to the PODCAST. And the things we said about four miles although I don't think we said anything bad. We just wanted to get signed to Ford models. Yeah. I. I'm still waiting just I hope that's why you came on the podcast is well, you know you're trending in the right direction shirt you're wearing a nice presentation going on. Yeah I brushed my hair for this. I'm not gonNA live like species I. figured I figured it was time to show up in my best so Are you implying that Williams the better looking one between the two of us because I'm about to be wearing. Dressed up for me. now, Justin look I know our listeners actually the question I get from my students actually recently has been all about talent agencies in that part of the business I'd love for you to tell our listeners a bit what you do how you got into East sports what you're doing at Ford models now just some of the background. We as been an entertainment attorney for over a decade working primarily in music and sports and fashion, or than about five years ago I kind of really transitioned working the East sports in gaming world started working with a bunch of different East sports, town agencies, both in house an outhouse the really familiarize myself with the different players in the team's how the deals are structured and how you kind of engage in. That and for the last few years I've kind of just been doing that on my own helping different players and teams and brands as well as other management firms. kind of would their legals, trademarks, copyrights contracts also do some visa and immigration work for players. So really just kind of all the legal and business side of the industry and you know, as you mentioned Ford, they're pretty established town agency. Primarily in kind of the model in high fashion world but in other markets including in Latin America they had a very strong more traditional talent platform representing musicians and professional athletes, and we just kind of good looking people and obviously in light of what's going on in the world, they're kind of more shifting toward Damore global platform they already had an established digital. influencer division where they had you know beauty and fitness and wellness models and really were able to kind of expand that into the sports and gaming world and you know as I said, I worked with many of the top teams I've done deals and overwatch really call do pro-lee fortnight's he has go halo of these big major games all the major teams across. The industry and from there I was really able to kind of have my own connections with different brand representatives and really kind of take this approach that I learned from the more traditional entertainment and sports agents that I've worked with and kind of apply to this bigger sports and gaming world. So now we signed initially ten talent and kind of looking at some other ones and really try to have a bunch of different people across the board who really what we're looking at is people that kind of transcended they weren't just gamers. They'd had other things going on whether they were coach for a team or they were caster or they really like sneakers and fashion or you. Know. They also just had this really his unique history or known hip hop game where he's really being hot ninety seven's world kind of on the red carpet interviewing these celebrities and you know really kind of having all these musicians and athletes actors gaming with him like almost every day of the week. So really kind of look for unique talent that we can kind of takes Ford's existing ecosystem and the brand even decades and really start offering you know unique Colin. That may be you know has his gaming know fortnight stream or are they play warzone there to touquet player, but they also have other things going on and we can start integrating some of their products into what? You know these sports players have been doing. I mean so you basically just described me and William. So I'm doubly doubly offended now and I would put my sneaker collection up against anyone's Now I. Know You maybe on my radar now? Jet. Mentally, Paul has a poppin sneaker collection. But here's the question like maybe you could talk to a couple of the the initial players you signed and what you know truly was sort of the thesis in your mind why you sign them and more importantly. Like what the future how do you develop these guys? How do you know how do you monetize them? How do you look at the next two to five years for them? We you know we kind of have like a really big take top gaming creator and someone who's kind of a coach also has his own podcast and really trying to figure out new ways that are maybe not solely related to streaming or you know like this is what I do extreme all day I'm going to compete in tournaments like how do we build these other avenues? So like we're helping them setup merge and finding unique designers to kind of give them their own kind of brand identity beside think that you know what I Learned from the more music world and some of the athletes it's all about kind of finding what's unique and highlighting it, and we have some talks with some brands that kind of are looking to get into the space. So we're really kind of focused on more than non endemic ones I see there's you know some of them are starting to come in when you have Lori L. Prod or Louis the con- but you know there's just a ton of more from you know more hair care products and face care products and you know. Even the high end luxury brands that are maybe looking at it, but don't really know how to go about it, and maybe they don't. WanNa. Spend a lot of money and do the wrong thing and it come off bed because as we know, that's not what you do. That's how you lose the market instantly. So it's you know hoping a familiar face in Ford that they kind of know the level that they come from and kind of someone like me who's really understand how you activate properly how you kind of find the unique. Stories. Like we sign this female Gamer who you know one of the best go players in the world and we're kind of figuring out ways to maybe develop you know training camps or interactive ways where she can have these how to get better female. She go camps to K. Coaches, kind of teaching than youth in how you kind of the next generation. So we're trying to look at how we can build around what their interests are and bring them some unique opportunities that you know maybe some of the other people in the world. Town Industry. Kinda can get do. You wanted to ask something. Yeah I'm just curious about like. So do you see the Ford Models Niche? Basically as there are a lot of talent agencies that represent Tammy, sports today right and you know I put many of the minute category, which is like Gamer I write basically their job is they represent people who are great gamers get on top pro teams. They got them a good salary on that team, etc right and those tend to historically those have been smaller East sports bespoke agencies have grown up from the community. Now that's changed quite a lot and you have other major talent agencies coming in like a and others that are taking really active role so and I kind of put those other. Than another category as well. Sort of these larger more established players. So given that ecosystem, right? He kind of sports specialists, some of the bigger agencies is it right to say you think Ford's models benefit is to connect with the classic fashion brands. So I'm going to sign with Ford models versus CAA because you can get me Louis Vuitton sponsorship because you can get me the you know what's Mascara Company, L'OREAL or revelry Al f you can get me the revlon like eyeliner deal is that really the value add is in the traditional fa or Did you see it as a broader piece of I. Think kind of is both I think that you know we're able to help some of four traditional models and other high in fashion influencers. Kinda come into the space maybe kind of acted properly, and then we really can be the bridge with some of these high fashion brands. But now also approaching it from the traditional one talking with hyper accessing the G. Fuels and no. As I said, I've been doing these deals with these teams. You know about once a week for the last couple of months. And years. So it's like I'm very familiar with them and it's really kind of being able to find talent who compete at this high level but also have other things that we can build around and you know the the C as in the UTA's in a one thing I've noticed. Yeah. You can have like fifty, one hundred however many players but can you really spend the amount of time servicing them and giving them the proper attention and you know it's great if you have fifty overwatch players but unless you're the top three or four or five. or You really spending your day pushing deals for the number fifty, number forty two and you know. So it's like we're looking at finding people that we can really focus on and develop because ultimately that's how you give them staying power and longevity and much more where it's not just based on how well the game goes I mean like you mentioned someone like cloister who you know champion one day and dropped the next like that's pretty tough and you know if you don't have other avenues and don't have other things going on and you know like. Tabs was about not expansion in the league aren't him anymore teams and everyone's dropping a player if you know supply and demand. We just don't have room for all these kids that compete at this high level and. Going to do now, you go to another game you so don't revalorised. You know you try to do content creations like we're trying to create these other avenues. The way, a traditional age in the other

"Win wanna get that record? Lebron James is chasing something greater than player of the month. Couldn't you argue though that we need both. None really. I mean, you don't wanna just unplug sometimes and watch tooth fairy. Never. Does need a light movie every once in a while while the light movies, a hangover's hysterically funny? I'm not saying I don't like comedies. There's never been a point in my life. I thought you know, what I want? I want to spend seventy bucks on popcorn tickets and watch tooth fairy revenue was the level of every movie I'd go to the movies more. The problem is half the movie stink. Now, I just stay home. And wait for vice to come out on you know, on at home, and I'll watch it my finger. We go to the movies a lot. But I mean, I think that you need balance and everything so you have the Russell westbrooks stats and then make it exciting during the regular season. And then you appreciate the guys like MJ and LeBron who win the championships in a different category. I just think everything can be the same and one one. It depends on what you're motivated. But I think in sports it's about winning. I agree with this you, and I have gone back and forth on this a lot. I prefer championships MJ. Even championships. It's not just you prefer team you prefer. We over me. Because sports is about a collaboration a community a unit you're building together a momentum. Right. I don't think basketball's better with Russell Westbrook shooting twenty eight times and shooting forty percent. I think the Westbrook now who's this tribute or still can't shoot Oklahoma city's better the games better. It's a better example. Like, I think Westbrook's game now is about winning and he still can't use his plus minus is the fourth best on his own team. Right. I think like even with will and Bill Russell when you use as examples when we look at Wilt Chamberlain. We talk about his career in a fun way. You know, he's still someone who contributed to the game. He still put up incredible numbers. You just put Bill different category winning category. Listen, I got I liked the rock. The raucous. James harden was I would watch him play like to your point. If harden was in town tonight. I go on. I just think that there needs. There's always a sports is entertainment. Right. There's always this'll be a balance and everything. But I don't really think that I think the NBA media tends to fall in love with the less relevant stuff and not pay attention to the more relevant stuff. There's too much fan. Boy. Yeah. We know. I don't think we do a show. I think our show is the wet blanket side, we try to balance things out. But of course, everyone gets excited and attracted to the new funding interesting thing, and that tends to be at the patriots in the warriors like winning gets boring. Because it's consistent. You know? I went yesterday. I got a physical physical yesterday. This is just a minute of wasted time. But I have to say about this. So I go to get a physical, and you know, it's just not that much fun. They're poking and prodding and stuff, and you know, whatever. And then I get my blood test at the end, and and so I just closed my fist, and I turn away. I don't mind giving blood give it three or four times a year. I don't wanna watch it. And I'm sitting there talking to lay blah, blah, blah. And then I turned over to the right is like six vials of blood over there. One of my vampire, what's happening to me. See guy you six vials. I'm exhausted today. I mean, not be able to do the third hour who gives orders that blood going? I don't I don't know. Where's all that blood going places in labs and make sure that you know, you're you're good comedy. How much do you need? I that's what I don't understand. Don't. They just use like one little draw draw on the input one drop in a slide. You literally no my levels of rival Flavin. You know, my I mean, you know, everything about me six vials a blind. It does seem excessive the amount of blood that they need for for one little seems like a lot..

So let's just call it what it is when you are members of lake nation, and the residue of that reality is still fresh in your damn nostrils how dare you. Treat LeBron James, like there's something he has to earn you lucky. He's here. This is all ready to be a LeBron James star in a walk of fame right now for the solar express reason that he came and he arrived in LA. That alone. That alone. Support LeBron James in that stratosphere. You owe a debt of gratitude because he has made the loss Angeles Lakers instantly relevant again, that's what he has done. You need to take heavily thought a matter of fact, there's only people like me and others that to cover him there Lake Erie. That's having attitude with him. And that was from the last four years. That's the past. That's the pay fast. I got nothing but love for LeBron days right now. You know, we go. So let's just make sure we clear about that. Now, having said, all of that, I will say this and this is something that's very, very important that everybody understands. When we talk about LeBron James and we talk about the notion of pressure. Okay. This keep things in it's proper perspective. The broad James has to deliver a championship in the four years that he's going to. He's committed to the Los Angeles Lakers. There's no other way around it. We realized that any way we want to, there's no way around it. LeBron James has to win a championship. You size it anyway. You want the broad. James has to do that. Laser gentleman right now. Elgin Baylor has the most NBA finals losses with eight. He was all for eight. Oh, for eight. The year he retired. Is the year the Lakers won the championship.

It's so pivotal for LeBron James to win a championship as long as he's in LA. Because every more key major superstar who's ever won the purple and gold other than Elgin Baylor has won a championship.

"We go into the second half of the nba season now everybody's got a little film on george hill inla braun and jordan clarkson and lebrun and larry nance junior and lebrun and rodney hood lebrun they first got together nobody'd seen him play together for four games they look great best team in the league now everybody's got the all star break look at film all the coaches breakdown the film a rodney hood and larry nance junior and george hill and jordan clarkson they looked at the film a lot of football teams are good in september new england's generally good in december and january so now look braun is figuring out what everybody in the nba knows is that those four guys were spare tires and when you have a flat tyre spare tires feel really good but that's all these new cavs arsal abroad started complaining about the referees after getting beaten badly by san antonio here it is that the rule of thumb we protect the shooter more than a driver there is no reason i should be going to the life fourtime can again when i drive a hundred times to the pain i'm getting hit slaheddine grabbed whatever whatnot so what we protect the shooter not so that's what is tired into uh no chicks dig delong boll and uh that's what it's about no that's not what it's about what it's about is lebron james's shooting fewer free throws this year than almost any other year of his career why because lebron james is settling for 3pointers at a higher percentage than almost any year in his career when you settle for three pointers and don't drive the basket you don't shoot as many free throws but that's not while lebron's upset lebron is upset for another reasoning you see this in relationships were you complain about breakfast and the toast being burnt but what you really want is out of the relationship see a pick fights lebron james chose to come back to cleveland and lebron james would prefer staying in cleveland because it believes cleveland he's going to be the villain of the nba for at least a year nb called a ring chaser i've always said his heart is in cleveland people move out of cleveland to miami he moved from me.

"I regard so christy what the news well that's the news and thanks for stopping by the third lie okay does a story out about lebron james and the warriors i think he planted it i'm gonna give you a rundown though on the possibility of la bronze next spot this is the hurt this is bob herve wherever you may be and however you may be listening live in los angeles iheartradio foxhole jordi own f asked one russell wilson 50minute thedot quarterback stopped by todd is great to have you in the big story today i was going to have a look braun free day christie lay he's joining the hour number two but there was a story that was driving this morning that developed so i'm just going to tell you what it is according to lead sources if the golden state warriors can create a mac salary slot this off season they could position himself to secure a meeting with lebron james which sounds like lebron james is setting up this story because the next sentences there's no indication that golden state is evaluating such options it goes on to mention a signing trade getting rid of klay thompson would be the best scenario and that katie would have to take a pay cut this completely sounds like somebody on lebron side wants it out there so the warriors can think about it dan gilbert can think about it i don't think if i was golden state i'd be interested but frankly because as i said in the start to show last hour stephane k d beat lebron at his own game the chessgame of player mobility and lebron did it and beat them and because lebron beat oklahoma city in a final he beat steffan the warriors in a than those guys joined forces checkmate and beat lebron why would they want to invite him to his party so i i don't think golden state wants it i think this is the side because he's.
