"The super produces two Kovacs helping to put the show together. Make sure runs all smooth. We got two hours. In a bank. We got two more hours to go. And I want to give Ah big shot outs to t double E Super for tweeting me. He says. I enjoy your show. Makes Montagne working at night so much better. Not a problem. Of course, that's what I'm here to do. I am here to help. As I said, You could tweet me at J. R Sport brief. We got more. Okay? We started off the first hour of the show. Taking a recap of some of the quarterback situations in the NFL. You have an Aaron Rodgers who I think for whatever reason, I guess being three and oh, and throwing up all these touchdowns. Helps people remember How great of a cube you are. Maybe the people in Green Bay will actually appreciate Aaron Rodgers. And you we spoke about Josh Allen. We spoke about Carson Wentz and hurts and some of these guys who are finally getting an opportunity. So we talked about the NFL to start off the show. Obviously, we know the Kansas City Chiefs. They just beat the bricks off of the Baltimore Ravens, 34 to 20. We'll talk about that in a second, and right before we went to break. We had a conversation about the Los Angeles Lakers in the Miami Heat, and this is going to be I think of Ah fun finals match up. I think we have the story lines galore here between LeBron James and his relationship. With the Heat and Pat Riley and Spoelstra storylines right themselves when it comes down to LeBron James and him trying to add to his legacy. LeBron James and Lakers and how it relates to Kobe Bryant. The storylines right themselves, and I think the sarees is going to be close. I expected to go 6 to 7 games. I'm favoring the Lakers in that regard, and I know how great the heat are. I can sit here and I can make a case for the heat. It would not surprise me at all. If the Miami Heat won not one damn bit and we had some call is and this is the thing that I don't understand as a sports fan. You know, you could say I disagree with you and I disagree on you know, I agree with you, J R. But you know the respect for What the hell does respect have to do it Anything? What is the difference of opinion and I don't lose any sleep. If anybody disagrees with me or someone is very passionate about their team. You know, I sleep very good at night. Either way, you know, the point is I have my opinion You have yours. If anybody out there is is correct 100% of the time. I don't think you'd be. Ah, sitting around. I think you'd be. You don't want a yacht somewhere, you know, picking lottery numbers, making all of the money. So I want to take more of your phone calls, and then I definitely want to talk about this match up. Because the Kansas City Chiefs You know, it's not easy to to repeat. It's not easy to go out and say We're goingto win. Another Super Bowl doesn't happen. But the chief certainly look like they're gonna be right there at the end, and we knew this already. And tonight against the Ravens. This was supposed to be what, like in a F. C potential title preview. Let's fast forward. What 23 months. This was supposed to be a preview. The Chiefs. They just they just run through every in anybody.

"Jimmy may win a championship being your third best option. He is right now. Gorn jog. It's playing like debate. Gorn Heat five. Okay, well, that that was pretty simple. Thank you. Price for call enough from Missouri. I don't know if Bama Tobia will necessarily have the same success against the Lakers. You know, we saw what Dwight Howard and he's not Dwight Howard from 10 years ago, but Dwight Howard was basically employed to give Yokich a difficult time and work in that regard against potentially you could consider Yokich to be the NBA's best big man. Everybody is going to eat here in this series. You know Bam is going to eat. Do expect them to go out and give you 32 next game. No, not necessarily. Do I think, Tyler a hero. You saying he's playing like an all star? You can pop up and give you 37? Yes, he can. But then he can come back and give you 15. He can give you 10. It's no different than the Duncan Robinson. I love what the Miami heat have done. And I can tell you and look at this objectively. I could care less about either team. To be honest, I love it from a basketball perspective. And the heat have pleasantly surprised me. These air some facts here. No one will ever be right. 100% of the time I will sit here and tell you I will not be right. You know why? Because I cannot control what happens out on the court. I can only look at it and try to give you my best case from from what I observed what I understand. And I have chosen and picked against the Miami heat. The entire season. And I've had this conversation with people who have played in the N B, a people who played on the heat people who have gone up and down in the road and played for Pat Riley. And the consensus is and my point is, it's difficult. It really is. It is extremely difficult to take young players. To put them here flat in the spotlight and say, be consistent show up. Do it get the job done more often than not young players won't do it. In a Miami heat have going on such a stretch and have gone on such a roll here, in my opinion, because they're in the bubble. That's what it is. There's not that same type of pressure. And I have never believed then we've seen it the he'd have hit the jackpot and it's amazing. It's fun. What they've done. The foundation is there in the timeline for them has been accelerated. It's It's like Kendrick Nunn. Kendrick Nunn. You know Right now he's not getting the same type of burn. He got earlier in the year and he was someone who was considered to be. You know, in his case, he thought he was going to be AH, Rookie of the year. And Kendrick Nunn. Right now, you know he's struggling to get buckets because hero has stepped up or Robinson has stepped up, and I think it's a it's a matter of alternating there and that, hoping those gods continue to step up. Let's see what they do against the Lakers. Is going to be a fun. Siri's. I think it comes down to the star that's picking LeBron in the Lakers Gibson he's calling up from Miami. I know what he's going to, say. Gibson, your CBS Sports radio. A J. R. I love your show You do You have a great show, by the way. Yeah, This is Gibson Sylvester from Miami. And I would like to say that you know that the heat they've caught lightning in a bottle. The national media has slept on the heat. They're goingto route the Los Angeles Lakers the same way they did see honest out of the Kimbo. They're going to put a box in one. Anthony Davis. They're gonna tell LeBron James score as many points as you want. Once you once you turn the faucet off on Anthony Davis. Then you neutralize the whole team and my in Miami. All the points will come from different players each Each day, because guess what? They're unselfish. The Miami Heat oven a route and disappoint the Lakers. I loved Lakers. I love Kobe. But I'm sorry, LeBron, you're gonna have to wait next year. You have a great show Brother Junior and Granger Gibson. It's J. R. Gibson. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's all right. There you go. This is for you for a long time. You do a great job, by the way. Excellent. Excellent job. Thank you. Gibson. Appreciate you. I don't know how you look Sam for so long and his Jr becomes junior. Two totally different things. Jose School. Everybody's calling me from Miami. I must tell you, my people in Los Angeles. Ah show hasn't clicked on yet. If we did this an hour from now, things would probably be different Jose's from I am He's going to tell me about the heat Wouldn't go ahead holds A why. Yeah, I don't think I'm good. Go ahead. Joe. You don't have a total respect for you, man. But let me say, you know I believe I believe the heat. May his back When it comes, it goes abroad. But you know what? People are behaved the heat forever that we put him down all these Really are, you know, Let me tell you some You know, I'm not trying to disrespect you. But people like you, the LeBron lovers. Bottom line. Is that Brandi? What? Anything they can to the heat, Okay? So I really believe That he's going for it. They got a chance to do this. The people. This group here is complete different that even with the Big three, the big re worried 6 1001 Guy's got a different Way about them, and I just believe that they have a chance. But Absolutely holds a They absolutely have a chance Who said they didn't have a chance? Well, you know, it's just that, you know, like you don't have respect for you. But you were still Jose Jose. Well, but well, Jose, this you kind of go moving into my second question I have for you. Where the hell does respects come in for for anything. What does respect have to do with anything?

You know what I'm going to call And that made John was saying No, because LeBron LeBron enabling, like LeBron LeBron. I mean, I understand He's a piece of nature. The guys is a great guy, but LeBron didn't win anything by army. But what about Jose? What is? You know? Damn Well, that doesn't have a damn thing to do it right now. We're in 2020 Not not in 20 not not in 2010. But mom, Ultima pointed. Thank you. Jose for calling up from Miami. This is what the thing that I that doesn't click in my brain. When people say respect. I had people calling me up and down last week about how much I didn't respect the Nuggets. I'm just going to call it like I see it. Where all let's put it this way. If you are a fan of the Miami Heat You can call me right now and be extremely happy. And you can say All Jr is is ah, you know he's rot in the LeBron Wave or Jr is not giving the heat this.

"I wanna thank the Miami heat or allowing me in this very busy sports time there with finals appearance on the line, while Aaron Rodgers and you breeze with throwing the ball all over the place last night, But tonight it's Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes. Mark Jackson being interviewed by Louis Riddick Louis Riddick asked on easy question about How much of your game you steal from Patrick Mahomes. You obviously must steal some parts. Everybody steals from everyone else, and his response was now. You get that tonight, But the reason I want to thank the Miami Heat is specifically because I don't have to publicly. H in your morning. Sports fits like cap in Ji Hood on ESPN one, Chicago's home. Wilson and Aaron Rodgers have been very good, but He He's making them look like the third best team in the A F. C. And this after, you know, thinking last year that he was reckless and made bad decisions and was inaccurate. Those things through three games seemed to be corrected. But more than that this is at P. Schrag on Twitter, Josh Allen last 14 games. 33 touchdowns, three interceptions, three interceptions. Like what? Surprised me most about him. Beyond. Like, how obviously strong he is. There was a play yesterday, where he got called for a face mask while breaking free tackles, including Aaron Donald, right beyond how strong he is the thing that has really surprised me. Is. It just seems hell of a lot more accurate than he Waas last year, and I didn't think that that's a thing that would be corrected that fast, like Lamar Jackson and Kyla Murray and Patrick Mahomes have all improved. On their accuracy. But their starting point on accuracy was also very high. Josh Alan, and so anyways, I get to move on and just talk about the Miami heat. It's been a huge leap on. We'll see if it continues. It's only three games, but he was 58.8% last year Josh Alan and 71.1% through three games this year. I mean, I'm telling you, Steve got I'm not used to seeing a quarterback while going backwards, breaking three tackles from people who have them in there in his sights and then face masking one of them and one of them being Aaron Donald like that's not He's just he's hard to bring down. He's big and physical, and now he is accurate. But all those things also described Bam out of by last night. And if you were watching that game every time just about right because the Lakers were monster favorite was Shaq and Kobe when they face the Chauncey Pillow Johnstons abilities. Detroit Pistons. And in talking to Jeff Pearlman, the author of that book about Shaq and Kobe. We did a South Beach session with him. That'll be out here at some point during the finals. He was saying. That the Laker locker room was furious and never forgave Kobe for going out there against Detroit and trying to shoot everything. Because he wanted to win finals MVP. And Kobe Bryant just went out there, according to Jeff Perlman's reporting in a new book to Win Finals MVP and just shot and shot and shot and that's the Only time. That we have seen that kind of upset in our lifetime in basketball, where a team has the two best players on the floor, and they get beaten by Chauncey Billups. Not even you know, LeBron and Bosch and wave getting beaten by Dirk like you could have made an argument at some point in there somewhere that Dirk was one of the better players from among that group. But usually if you have the two best players, and I'm sure this is what's happening nationally, It has to be what's happening nationally where everyone's just assuming all the Lakers have rolled, the Lakers have rolled, and they're not paying attention to the fact that those air three bad defensive teams that they rolled over and Miami's not a bad defensive team, and furthermore, Miami got its offense off against Milwaukee in Boston, those air elite Defensive teams to God. And last night it was Bam out of bio dribbling in from half court, and we'll talk to Tyler hero about this, but that is not something that Miami has shown that like in game, 62 break the Celtics over your knee, while Jason Tatum has taken a million shots from the outside, not being aggressive and not doing anything against Jae Crowder. Like nothing. When J grounder Crowder was guarding Jason Tatum had to point the rest of the game. He scored on everything else he scored, was on everybody else. But what if there had been I am out of bio dribbling, handling the ball, bringing it up half court. Miami's been doing that all all season, right? What there had not been is him taking the next step and Dribbling in decay viewed defense in where you're getting assists. You're getting dunks. You're you're just Thais wasn't able to do anything other than foul out if he could do that, in a half court set, where he's breaking you down off the dribble of that size, getting into the paint and then distributing all the three point shooters. That's a regal we have not seen. That's a Rygel that his coat you certainly helped. The I was not aware that Bam was capable of doing that. Well, this is the thing that you have in front of you right now with the Miami heat, and I know nationally, I'm just Guessing that everybody's going to be picking the Lakers. Because LeBron James is LeBron James, the best basketball player I've ever seen. I'd be scared to pick against him under any circumstance. Everyone is up stand Van Gundy, But Stan Van Gundy is pointing out the way that Miami is playing. That is interesting. And the thing that we've talked about here before is Jimmy Butler. You cannot win a championship if he is your best player, But what you have seen in the last two games was sort of a fast forward button pressed on the last two victories on Tyler, Hero and Bam out a bio where it's like The team is being handed to them. In the most critical moments. The ball the team the season like Jimmy is also involved with that, but you're getting a usage rate out of them that you have never seen. Tyler Hero just put up a game. We told you about this. That is better than any playoff game that Jason Tatum has ever had. Or Joel Embiid has ever had. Or Jalen Brown has ever had. And then never mind that Now, Bam out! A bio just had one of these games only like Charles Barkley has ever had, where it's get out of the way. Everyone move out of the way here. It's his time. He's gonna foul out. Your your center, and he's going to keep doing things at the rim, and he's going to have the best game of his season at the most critical time..

"Years. Would he still four both on the floor and off the floor? What he demanded out of his teammates What he's made out himself. You know, and You know, we have some similarities in that sense. Yeah, There's some similarities. There are some some differences. You know when you want to think about who they are as basketball players when you want to think about Kobe and LeBron Personality wise, but you can't take anything away from the the dedication. And how they approach the game. How they approach their craft. How they approach things away from basketball. Very different. Very different, but the dedication is the same. If you saw that that celebration Of the Los Angeles Lakers winning the Western Conference. LeBron James was pretty damn you tick. You know LeBron isn't playing for Western Conference titles. LeBron and James is playing for the Larry O'Brien trophy. Explain for his fourth reign. He's playing for his legacy. He and the team are playing to honor Kobe Bryant. As LeBron James sat While confetti fell in the bubble. In an odd scene. There were no fans celebrating the fans want aboard a big video board, says Lakers Western Conference champs. It was just an odd scene. What else could we expect here in 2020? But I don't think this is it for the Lakers. I believe the Lakers are are goingto hoist that Larry O'Brien In about a week's time, and about a week and a half time, I think the Lakers will be champs. The Miami Heat. It's amazing what they've done. And granted. This isn't your regular Typical straightforward season. If it wass I'm not so sure that The Miami Heat would be here. I'm not so sure that unless we went into the bubble that the heat Would be here. A number five seed in the N B a finals. But what they've done has been amazing. The team just that the foundation is already there. But bringing on a Jimmy Butler. Nobody looks at Jimmy Butler and says, Okay, this guy is going to just change the game or the world, but his influence on the team is there. He's playing with guys who want to ball out. He's playing with players who don't need to be pushed or don't need to be prodded into improving. Hi. Joel and B. Hi. Karl Anthony sounds Is playing with a Tyler, A hero who had 20 years old just wants to go out and get it. He's playing with Ah, Duncan Robinson, who I'm sure is. Just throw Toby N. E. N ba, and it's taken advantage of every opportunity that he has. And quite frankly, that's what Jimmy Butler's had to do his entire life. You want to talk about a young man who went through a stretch of homelessness. And now he's in the N B. A You don't think Jimmy Butler appreciates every single thing that comes his way. You don't think Jimmy Umbrella has a different appreciate appreciation for his his standing in basketball and his standing just in life. The Miami Heat are going to make this close. They've played like it seen They are an amazing team. If not, they're going to push the Lakers. But I just I cannot see LeBron James letting this go. And all of the unique circumstances that I laid out to you here in 2020. I can't see LeBron James in the Lakers san. OK, we're going to just Be happy We're here. We're going to get this far and and let it roll. I don't think that's gonna happen. And we know there was a point in time. When you look at those those eight games to start the bubble Lakers, they look too hot. Trying to figure out the rotations Keep the players fresh. You think about that first game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Lakers. They don't look so hot. Then they started to get rolling. And here they are with an opportunity to pick up another championship. I told you LeBron James. I don't think he is going to be denied. LeBron James has made clear He never lost confidence in this team getting to the finals. It's all part of the process with job is not done from me personally for us as a franchise. I'm extremely problem, Teo be apart is franchise getting back toe where it belongs. This is what I came.

"III LOVES SIGHT THAT LOSS. From the Lakers and how about we break it down right now guys Lebron. What is third triple-double this postseason, but it wasn't enough against the nuggets. Last Night Denver led by twenty as late as the fourth quarter Lebron Ford in thirteen points in a last-ditch comeback at. Albury, finished with a team I twenty, eight, ten of which came in the fourth defend off Lebron the Lakers and hold on for the one fourteen to one. Oh, six Windsor Shannon. What is the biggest reason? The Lakers lost this one. They came out they came out and look like a team was to oh, and they just thought you know we don't come on here and do what we do and and not play hard and you could tell early on the nuggets were getting whatever they want. They drive laid up in the paint they you'll get to his dominant hand his right hand. Kiva phenomenal player. He's GonNa make shot skip that shot that he hit with the clock winding down on the right foot. I note most guys right handed shoot that shot Dirk Nowitzki made famous what he shot off his left leg I've never seen right hand guy shoot that shot up the up the wrong foot. I mean, 'cause we shoes tonight expected to go in everybody that's a bad shot clock winding up I expected to go in but I did not expect the Lakers to look this flat. We've haven't seen them even even against a Portland skip the first game even against the rockets the first game they didn't look this flat they I'm like broad do realize the western conference finals. you mentioned it a D. Two rebounds and they came in the last five minutes of the Game Hey deeply forty-three minutes. Avail one rebound white one rebuilt. If you tell me skill that the nuggets will out rebounded again by nineteen. If you tell me, they're going to turn the ball over the Lakers. I'm going to say the nuggets going to win the series, but I don't believe that I believe Lebron ad will play better I. Believe Lebron will be more aggressive because I thought the second the second in the third quarter. Eighty go it and it seemed like Lebron was designed to say you know what you gotta go hey, we're gonNA keep going. But skipped ahead, given up so much ground they had dug themselves. So much of a whole maybe if they don't allow get a eighteen twenty, maybe ten twelve now they can complete the comeback but I thought the Lakers played like a team that was looked. Like they didn't have they had a away game and if through this game away but what are the process what you've done if that you giving these guys confidence because now they think they can beat you they do they feel like Murray for sure thinks he can be yes and he's talking like He. SHOULD BE UP TWO GAMES TO ONE IS I've seen story before the thing is with this guy when he gets hot and. Those lash those last second shot because I saw him in game seven you remember the clock out of both have and he throwing up three's from twenty five from thirty feet and he switching. So he has confidence in their gaining companies but the problem that also has get, you can't have every guy that played for the nuggets with the exception of to a temp equal to or more free throws they Lebron James that tells. Me He's not getting he's not driving the ball. He's not aggressive enough or they're not calling it. So for me, that was the different. They just lacked intensity. They came out like a team that was too low and had the game to throw away I. Expect I know for certain and I'm going I, don't care I. don't care what the line he'll. I won't do on it right now you do I won't do right now.

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.

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.

The Return of Playoff Rondo

The Lead

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

"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.

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. He retired midseason. Jerry West is second on this. The wonderful Jerry West, a basketball savant that his Jerry West, the consulted, the Steve Balmer, the owner for the Los Angeles Clippers that Jerry was that Jerry West, who bought a way has a legitimate shot of getting a while Lennon to come to the clippers next season that do. Carey was has eight finals MBA loss to, but he won one. He went to nine. MBA is lost eight. Eligibility went over eight. They gentleman, you know who's third on that list. Donate listens, LeBron James. But I'm here to tell you right now. Forget the six NBA finals losses. Forget it doesn't matter. Let me tell you why. 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. That's what. Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul. Jabbar have four NBA finals losses, but magic one, five rinks Kareem one, six. And both of them one championships with the Lakers we'll Chamberlain only has two championships and six NBA finals. Appearances on his resume will Chamberlain. Has to rings one was with the Lakers..

"To figure out if lebron james is still underpaid we called up one of the economists from that original report victor matheson from holy cross university he happened to be on vacation at the time in mexico i am in cancun i'm sitting at a pina colada by the pool under a palm tree no less i could touch the palm tree if i sat up from my lounge chair well don't do that don't strain yourself just lounge and we'll ask you about lebron james is lebron james still underpaid his salary's gone way up probably still underpaid lebron continues to get hosed even with a monster deal from the lakers because being the world's greatest basketball player means being responsible for a huge economic ripple effect think of ticket prices says victor for example in cleveland average attendance cleveland's went up in the game and of course places for the picket lay more than that we have seen some evidence that the very top stars might be making even at the nba maximum salaries still might be underpaid by twenty thirty fifty percents that means lebron james may still be underpaid by around twenty million dollars that's what i got my my peak it's out so i got i gotta get outta here thanks so much sure thing by for a second opinion on this we call it up brian windhorst from espn he's kind of the lebron james guy over at espn i sometimes in healty of making things too complex so we don't be afraid say hey you're not talking to nba board of governors here luckily brian says this is not complex he is still underpaid and yes because five six years ago the nba was bringing in about seven or eight hundred million dollars per year in television money from their broadcast partners turn on espn that number is now closer to two point four billion the tv money has tripled per year wow lebron james salary has only a little over doubled and of course a big reason tv money is up is because of lebron james brian says that if lebron salary was not tied up in all those nba restrictions and if teams were able to pay him whatever they wanted my guess is that a team in a very large market would probably offer lebron a deal approaching one hundred million dollars a year instead lebron will have to make do with that thirty six million dollar salary oh and by the way lebron is also getting hit by moving to california a state with the highest income tax and much higher cost of living than ohio so looks like poor lebron james just cannot catch a break

"Pay their superstars way less than the market value they wanna keep some of that money that otherwise paid a brown they want to keep that for themselves and in fact it's actually illegal under antitrust laws for owners of other businesses to collude about south salaries the way that owners of nba teams do but the nba like other sports leagues got itself exempted from these antitrust laws but it's not just colluding owners are the ones hosing lebron james his less talented teammates are hosing out of his money as well so remember these salary cap rules that came about as part of the collective bargaining agreement between the owners and the nba players union itself here is our other economists kevin greer will the union is is union votes on contracts by majority rule right so we would think if it's like majority rule that it would be the guy in the middle who would be the crucial voter right if you could line if you pick pick an in a thing like salary cap in line everybody up for who wants it the most versus who wants at least it would be the guy right in the middle of that distribution of players the medium player what are their interests and the answer is the medium player the non superstar they don't want all the money to go to lebron james either they want some of that money for themselves so when i think about this mike miller like one of lebron james teammates chances are even a casual fan knows about lebron james probably you've heard of lebron's superstar teammate dwayne wade but mike miller no one outside of a hardcore basketball fan really knows who mike miller is and he's a good player is an excellent shooter he plays pretty good defense but in a non salary cap world he probably wouldn't be making nearly six million dollars a year which is what he's making now in a non salary cap world teams would probably wanna pay lebron james a bit more and mike miller a bit less so perhaps an even bigger reason the ron james teammates really like this crazy system of the salary cap in the draft is that expands the total number of jobs and here might be instructed talk about my washington wizards do we have to unfortunately i think we did ok okay because it's possible that.

"The case for how a multimillionaire like the brown james is getting hosed and to do that let's imagine a job description then they might see a monster dot com or a newspaper wanted once in a generation nba superstar skills required must be able to soar through the air in order to execute thunderous dunks check lebron takeaway by him show must be a team player who works well in small groups of five who can facilitate performance by executing impossible seeming cross court passes to barely open teammates check must thrive under pressure preference given to tall strong and extremely agile candidates and ability to play suffocating lockdown defense as a plus check rondo drives all there's the fake but again economists victor matheson so by lots and lots of measures lebron james is the best player in the nba if you keep playing this pace that he has for the last ten years and has a link to career that is not interrupted by injuries he may go down as the best player in the history of the game all right so say you work at an imaginary human resources department lebron james resume with i gotta figure a highlight reel lands on your desk and you got to figure out how much do we pay this guy what is he worth how do you figure that out if only there was a way to determine just how much value he adds to a team like say this job candidate somewhere in his employment history saying he'd switched teams and you were able to compare the economic impact of that switch if only the answer to the question everybody wants to know lebron what your decision so to anyone with even a passing interest in sports you'll remember this it's win the brian james decided to leave his old team the cleaver cavaliers and go to his new team the miami heat and this form we'll take my towns to south beach and join the miami miami heat that was the conclusion woke up with this morning that was the conclusion i will go with his more this decision it was actually called legislation it was broadcast on prime time around the world this was huge sports news for everyone that cleveland cavaliers they felt betrayed fans there burned his jersey lebron james was reviled on sports talk radio for weeks and months and basically a whole year to come but that's not why we're talking about this moment no it's not no we're talking about it because it gives us a pretty clear picture of how valuable lebron james is when he left the cavaliers the value of the team that is how much it would have been worth if the team's owner had tried to sell the team exactly that value dropped by about twenty five percent and the value that team that he went to the miami heat when up thirty percent this is all according to calculations done by forbes magazine and when you take all this into account how much ticket sales would go up how much tv revenue would go up the people who study this will tell you that lebron james should be making around forty million dollars a year more double his current salary and there we have it the mathematically precise amount by which the brian james is getting hosed is getting hosed out of over twenty million dollars a year all right so if that's the case let's say i'm the general manager of my beloved brooklyn nets we're not that good we're stuck in the middle of the pack i'm sorry that's that's all right with the stop me from saying we'll get to your team in a minute what's to stop me from saying hey lebron james i will pay your full value i'll pay you forty million dollars a year if you come over and play for my team was you know alex you're not allowed to do that no i'm not no there is a salary cap in the nba there's a limit on how much owners can pay their players yeah there's a limit on how much they can pay in salaries overall and there's a limit on how much.
