I got to admit something. I have to admit something like The ENDA bubble has been kind of fascinating. There have been upsets. You've got big names. You've got LeBron James and Anthony Davis, right where everybody thought they wouldn't. And by the way, how long was the end of world hoping for a Lakers heat final that involved LeBron James.

There's a lot going on there. And I may. Finally because of all of that tune in But I got to admit, I mean, my MBA bubble viewing has been minimal, minimal. I found out this year like it really because of the pandemic and everything. We're all going through and Sports is just wavering as to whether or not you were gonna happen.

Is that with you know, with the nightly grind of Major League baseball for every local team now being over You know you're outside of Thursday, Sunday and Monday. Those other four nights of the week. There's there's There's some openings for sports TV viewing, But yeah, baseball viewing is going to go way way down. I do wonder this, though. Did you see what what the Thursday Night game is this week in the NFL? Like I had two different reactions, Tio The news, and it's not really news. But I just saw the commercials for this week's Thursday night game. And then this week's Monday night game week four. The Thursday night game for week for this week. I wish we could drum roll this for you is, ladies gentlemen. The Denver Broncos at the New York Jets. Oh, dear. I mean, that hurt just to say it out loud.

Pandemic playoffs: Brewers, Astros in despite losing records
"When you woke up on Sunday morning none of the eight matchups were said I. think that's kind of cool that would be like the the final day of the regular season Lebron Yeah I don't even know who we're playing. That's what it was for every single team yesterday in Major League Baseball your dodgers are going to play the brewers who got in yesterday with the first losing record granted at sixty. Games with the first losing record for a team in the history of the Major League Baseball Playoffs there were twenty nine and thirty one opening round best of three all in the same ballpark what are your thoughts and we couldn't lose I mean you know it. Likely not, but we could because his only three games all they got to do is win two of them, right? So baseball is so weird dodgers obviously you mentioned we got him at home dodger stadium. I don't think that you know I'm sure we're going to roll out Walker Bueller in Kershaw and we're going to do what we need to do to get to the next round But you could lose you know teams could lose you know the beginning of the year, the dodgers and the Yankees were pretty much the favorites to to get to the thing. In the end, but then the pandemic happened then we had to do all of the rescheduling and figure out how many games that went on for so long how many games should they play the only WanNa play this amount, the players, WanNa, play that amount it became a money issue, and now we finally have gotten to the point where October will be playoff baseball. Speaking out, let's go through a couple of interesting storylines after this round by the way, then everything is going to be played at trial sites and eventually the world series will be played at the home of the Texas Rangers and they'll wrap that no. Later than October twenty eighth, they want to avoid the second third. So homefield everybody early, and then we're going to neutral sites, Los Angeles San Diego. Texas and Houston quick thoughts the Yankees of the five seat in the AL, the five seat, the rays of the one-seat. What does the same thing with the dodgers? Right? The Yankees could they take care of business they moved their events they don't they go home whether they a one C or DHCP. It's everybody's even really to be honest with you. Everybody's even Garrett Cole. Start, for the Yankees Chain Bieber for the Indians in for all the money they paid Garrett Cole Shane Beavers had a better year he has in when you look at it, there are no fans in the stands. So there's no home field advantage for anybody you know what's great about not having fans the Houston Astros. Left right. Everywhere they go. They are the sick see the astros have made it in baseball's big off season, they should just get blinked. Every time people bring up the Astros are frown just cheated just blatant just cheat to win. They're taking on the Minnesota twins keys, dodgers will take on the brewers the padres in the playoffs for the first time in fourteen years will take on the Saint Louis Cardinals and the much maligned and I know it's a sixty game season. How about the Miami Marlins under? Derek. Jeter, for everything that they have gone through there and they'll get the Chicago cubs. Yeah. They they.

"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 Tali 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 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, and 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 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 why I'm 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. What 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 grains. Gibson. It's J. R. Gibson. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's on guard. There. You give this to you for a long time. You do a great job, by the way Going extinct. Excellent job. Thank you. Gibson. Appreciate you. I don't know how you look so 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 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. J. R. Don't you know? 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 something. You know, I'm not trying to disrespect you. But people like you The LeBron lover's bottom line. Is that Brandi? What? Anything they can to the heat, Okay? So I really believe That's what 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, won six out of these guys got a different Way about them, and I just believe that they have a chance. 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're still Jose Jose. Well, but well, Jose, this you kind of go moving into my second question I had for you. Where the hell does respects come in for for anything. What does respect have to do with anything? Well, because you know what? I respect all your pretty as you do. And I agree with you almost died in that percent of the time and it was just I will show you earlier.

"The way, and then Before the pitch came. He was just Oh, we're identical on how we view things. This is the right fit for me. This is a fit for now, And they like their chances all season long against Milwaukee and after you got past Milwaukee, why not us? So Riley didn't have to pull out the rings and double on the table. They didn't even go into the pitch, Is it? Tony did How heard what else did COWHERD say about the Miami? It was in a tweet Dan. He was talking about going back and forth. People on Twitter is saying that the heat have a low ceiling and that's part of things because they can't shoot and just obviously wasn't watching. I have I found interesting. What has happened on ESPN Just generally right where I don't know the last 10 years or so, the fandom of what used to be some kind of objectivity, or at least the illusion of objectivity has gone away. As you know many of you watching television now. Know where our allegiances are. The people who used to pretend to be objective on stuff. And I have noticed in Los Angeles that there is a bit of cheerleading amid the Los Angeles media. Because LeBron is over there, there's been a bit of cheerleading for the Lakers were gonna pull on the other end of the rope over here. Miami in L. A. You got Magic Johnson famous Laker, asking Dwayne Wade famous Miami Heat player who he's rooting for in this serious because he's such close friends with LeBron James. And what is it that Dwyane Wade had to say? Magic Johnson with a hard hitting journalistic question? Basically, this is what the finals is going to be. Magic just asked the hardest question any of us are going to ask. The rest of us are just going to be fawning all over people at Magic Johnson on Twitter. The Million dollar question is who will Duane? Wait, be cheering for his former team, the Heat or his best friend, LeBron James. Dwyane Wade responds. We call this a win win, but it's heat nation over here. I don't like the qualifier of win way. I mean, if the heat lose, you don't win. Well, you were saying during the break is well that you didn't believe him. And that you think is ready for LeBron rooting for LeBron Yes, Which is why you don't qualify it by saying it's a win win, But it's heat nation over here. If you're just rooting for the heat, and don't care about LeBron, you just say the heat. Well, you're funny, though, because last week you were willing. And somebody pointed this out on Twitter because they said, really stew gods after a lifetime of lies and treachery. You believe Roger Goodell when he says I'm sorry immediately for four years of lying, like like it is like you believe Roger Goodell, But you don't believe me. You don't believe Dwayne Wade now from Wade. I turned that around on magic. You're rooting for the Lakers or your best friend Pat, right, as you have that You're doing? I don't know. Irving feel like Duane doesn't want the heat to win right? Not because he wants LeBron to win. But then what happens if you don has has, um, wins 1/4 ring that he has more rings in Miami than Dwyane Wade does. And no one's won a championship in Miami without Dwayne Wade in the first year. He's gone, They win without him. I think it's fair to say he's rooting against the, um I thought you called him Irving Magic Johnson because people are pointing out here on the Jewish holiday that you dont you look like a mess that you shouldn't be skipping services.

That is just absolutely crazy to me, so he's going No surprises there when they were up 31. I think it was kind of a done deal. I couldn't envision Denver. Doing it again after they came down from came back from 31 deficits against the Jazz, and then the Clippers like there's just no chance with the star power.

Are We Being Forced to Buy Stocks
"Last week in the insiders guide email newsletter I pointed out the expensive valuation of US stocks. Specifically I showed that the forward price to earnings ratio the P. E. based on earnings estimates over the next year was twenty, two point nine. That's three standard deviations above its average of sixteen times going back to two thousand, three at data from Ned Davis. Research. In reply to that email, Andrew wrote regarding stocks being expensive on a forward e true but there's no alternative. What do you do with bond yields near Zero and the vanguard total stock market? Index. Fund. Yielding two percent. By VPI, the vanguard total stock market ETF. JASA forwarded to me a paper by Bridgewater says, which I'll discuss in more detail later in this episode. I had a similar question from a plus member in the money for the rest of US plus member forums. He wrote. So the Fed signals that it wants to keep rates low for three more years. Canada's pension. Fund is reevaluating bond-holdings and you've got an army of small and large investors bidding up companies like Tesla and snowflake to absurdly hype. All this combined to make me think are we as individual investors now forced to buy equities? Is this the mother of all bubbles in which there's literally no other things suitable for purchase. There is a lot of speculation in stocks right now. Jim. Bianco Bianca Research pointed out that small traders are dominating the options market. Bear most of the trades right now and seventy five percent of that volume is an option contracts expire in two weeks. So short term bets. Look at South Korea and article from Bloomberg pointed out that day traders in South Korea have accounted for eighty seven and a half percent of the total value of stocks traded in the first part of September. You. Some men chief strategist at Samsung Securities said retail investors appear to be seeking short-term profits after hearing their next door neighbors earned lots of money from stocks after the March selloff. Receiving a similar situation in India. The Financial Times reports that the number of individual investor accounts rose twenty percent from the start of the year, the twenty, four million, and they point out that around the world, an influx of investors are investing in stocks for the first time. Are. We in a bubble? Is it a speculative frenzy? Are we forced to buy these stocks because there are no alternatives with also? One of the things I like to do investing is think about what's different this time what's unusual? What what doesn't fit the pattern? I had two instances of investing this past week where something didn't fit the pattern Lebron, I were driving up in the mountains of Montana and a small bear cub really bolted right in front of us no idea what it was running from. My son suggested he was running from the year twenty twenty. And then few days later at our front door, there were seven cows drinking water from the driveway eating our bushes. There are no cows around us. We live in an area that nobody keeps cows but there they were right in front of my house. Turns out. They had strayed from the National Forest, which is not very far some outfitters have grazing rights and drop off the cows and leave them there all summer pick them up come late October, and they had straight down because some of that newly cut barley fields, but it didn't fit the pattern. Cows at your front door. Don't fit the pattern. What's different now on investing front that could justify more expensive valuations for stocks. Well, for the first time, ever US interest rates are near zero from short term out to ten years. This is known as a flat yield curve, which is an unusual. We've had flat yield curves in the past. But it's flat near zero. There was a flat yield curve where ten treasury bonds and cash for yielding similar back from two thousand and five to two thousand seven. But yielding four percent. And from two thousand to two, thousand, two cash and tenure treasures were yielding five to six percent. Today, the ten year Treasury yield is zero point, six percent and cash is zero.

Shannon Sharpe reacts to Lakers GM 3 loss to Nuggets in Western Conference Finals
"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.

Why The Clippers Collapsed
"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.
Bam and the Heat slam the door on the Boston Celtics in game 1 of the ECF
"Demon Amanda Laura with your radio dot com sports minute There are blocks like LeBron Swat in the 2016 NBA Finals that punctuated championship and there are blockers like campaign. Tom Bo shut down dunks snatch souls by waving that finger opponent's faces. Oh, no, no, not here And somewhere in that pantheon, a live band at a bios rejection from last night. Heat up to Eastern Conference Finals Game number one waiting seconds oven Emotional over time, Jason Tatum goes up for a rim rocking dunc get stoned by at a bio at the rim. Slow motion replays appear to show a physics defying and risk spending all the way back before pushing the ball out of the cylinder.

Boston Celtics Blew It In Game 1
"The Western Conference finals is on Friday night game one of the Eastern Conference Final Scowl was on Tuesday night and that was a fantastic game in the eastern conference. It was a back and forth affair it looked like Boston. Had IT. Scale, the Celtics controlled most of the game up behind a thirty five, twenty, three fourth quarter including a big Jimmy Butler corner three it was a tight game heading overtime and then in in overtime scale is a fantastic finish with Boston's young star Jason Tatum having the ball driving the WHO for a game tying dunk that was blocked at the rim by tremendous defensive play by Bam at a bile. Just think of this. That that play by Bam I don't I don't know like the Lebron block comes to mind. But from a playoff standpoint man that was a big time block I think I think that blocked will be seeing for a long time to come over and over and over again on the highlight package, but you know by. The Celtics to me really blew this game. They came out with the right mindset of playing basketball the right way with force and purpose and moving the basketball, and then they just thought was too easy and they let Miami back in Miami, you know built up a six point lead in the Celtics again in the third quarter a stark afford quarter build another lead up to fourteen points in this lead now and Miami. Just completely chipped away very to me a very, very disappointing style of play from the Celtics I don't if you. WanNa, beat the Miami Heat and it's not like you shouldn't do. You should know this going in you got to move the basketball and the Celtics a trot around talking about we gotta move the ball. We got to share it when we moved the ball run stoppable and then they proceed when they get a fourteen point lead moving the ball, they go on and play isolation for the last ten minutes of the fourth quarter. I thought I thought a not a I don't want to call an embarrassing performance but I really thought it was. On characteristic for them to play that style against the heat team which you know going in, you cannot play isolation basketball against the heat you have to put those guys on the move. Yeah, you do you have to share the ball you have to move it. Boston. Look good throughout much of the game scall- especially in the second half on the third quarter looks like they took control and into the fourth quarter. What Miami made the big plays down the stretch a mentioned Jimmy Butler corner three in Bam's big block at the rim on the Celtics side sidescale some of their young wings in particular played very well Marcus smart was terrific. Yet twenty six points. He made six of thirteen threes. A Jason Tatum Jalen, Brown were. Solid almost got. One of the things that I think has a lot of people including this guy himself scratching their head that is Celtics Point Guard Kemba. Walker you really struggled scale on Tuesday night. He was just six for nineteen from the floor one for nine from three, and after the Game Kemba Walker said, I'm just playing terrible to be honest I just have to be

"LeBron. But they've already shown against your seventy three win warriors what LeBron kyri can do together. So I would put clay behind behind kyri, but ahead of everybody else on this, I will say this, his the one part that you are ignoring about kyri with LeBron. And this is not Kyrie's four, but I've always held this against LeBron K D arrives in Golden State, K, D, And the Golden State Warriors are waiting for the Braun and the Cavs in the finals. Lebron and the Cavs beat Boston, and on the court and TD Bank guarded lebrons. Gave what I consider to be a concession speech.

"And you know, it's like to me it's sort of like to the extent that we can separate out what James did. And what Magic Johnson and rob Pelinka did in terms of signing people. You should get that blame. Right. If you were if you were constructing the team, then you're going to get a little bit of that. So that's okay. The other thing that really interests me about this. And I said a few things about this on he'd check today. So forgive me for repeating myself. You're a ringer podcast complete assed. But the there's this whole idea with LeBron that, and I think this is a little bit of a straw, man. I'm not sure anybody's actually saying this. But let's say this idea is out there that he has has so many entertainment projects that he's being distracted by that. He is a here in Hollywood. Now, he's got all his things. There was a deep dive about that in the LA times this week. He's got all that stuff. I don't necessarily think he is distracted. I certainly think he should be able to do what? Every wants in that realm of life. Here's the thing from a local perspective here in LA. I never heard him make the case in the media terribly strongly of why he wanted to be a Laker. I heard why he wanted to be out here because of all the entertainment stuff but yet to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. I I never got the sense of that. And you know, writers you're still talk about the fact that when he decided to sign with the Lakers at the beginning of free agency. He didn't do a press conference here. They sent out rob Pelinka to read from the Pala Coelho novel. What I mean, that's like which is like honestly, the worst moment in the history of press conferences. I mean, what in the hell was that? And I just never got the sense that he does he he did he really wanted to be a part of that team. And again, that's not saying well abroad, didn't try. That's something LeBron to put all that aside. But all those dumb ideas, aside it just like, I don't quite understand. The affirmative case of what he wants to be like. Yeah. I mean, I think there's a I think that it's easy. To read, and listen, I'm jumping over to the fan's perspective now, but as easy to realize of just sort of wrongheadedness into all of the I mean, just all the decision making processes that go on in his camp, and you know, by extension clutch sports too. You know, I joked when Anthony Davis made his trade demand that like you could just see the the clutch crew mean you could imagine the clutch crew like coming up with this idea. Like, we'll just Amanda trade on this Monday the specific day, and then it will force their hand, they'll have to take the Lakers trade, and they all they all agree. They all high five they all look out in the meeting and like forty five minutes later, they're just like staring at the computer screen confused as to what just happened, you know, and and I feel like there's sort of some of that with his announcing the Lakers to that. Like, he was gonna take a vacation. And then they were like, you know, it would be really cool if instead of wait until you got back and string everybody along which nobody wants. We just went ahead and told them or signed with the Lakers right now. But then they forgot to cancel the vacation. You know, they forgot to do like the like the second half of it. That would have really made driven the point. Home. And you're right. He hasn't made the case the one thing he did say was that he wasn't upset. He like he was signing regardless whether or not Paul George aside designed because he was there for the long haul that that's right that statement specifically, and then what we got this season..

"lebron" Discussed on In The Zone with Chris Broussard
"It all and lebron similar like lebron becomes the system and i think that's that's why he can make any could take me and you yes and we'd be great to yes but i think he has trouble beating a talented group plays as the teams and it's only right golden state right well and it also why veterans of always worked better with him because you need to be able to be able to read and react to him you're not running specific system you're going down the floor and you need to be able to affect the game without the ball on your hands that's why him going to the lakers with this group like everybody's like oh kyle kuzma brandon ingram and lonzo ball and like what they're not gonna have the ball the way did before so the numbers aren't going to be the same and can they like how corvers a great piece to have next to him because kyle korver is just going to read and react i'm gonna be here if you need me you know jr smith to kind of the same thing and then i'm going to fend at one end or i'm going to stay i'm always gonna be in the right place at the right time he's going to have none of that here so yeah it just the system is is lebron it's also why when he leaves and teams crater it's because listener fees out of his thing it's the tent and you took the main tent pole out it doesn't doesn't necessarily like you have a team to him and you see guys that were like great players in their own right or wanted the ball in their hands and had the confidence they don't last with him yeah like dion waiters whatever you think of him like no dude kyri wanted from possession of possession in my bring it up on the wing of mine the corner and then when you're getting all of the heat and this is all just from lebron it's from the outside when it's constantly all kyri doesn't have any any assist okay you're beating me off your i'm not high that's not my job here so i think that's where it becomes a challenge and now it's a little bit like the new england patriots tom brady kawai in san antonio and lebron hitting the spot now where there was a time where even being in cleveland you'd wanna play with lebron because you like they'll be in the finals and i could win a championship i get ring that you know played in san antonio under pop that guys would make sacrifice new england make a sacrifice now a women i put up with all this and i'm not maybe not getting ring like do i do you think there is a feeling among maybe a growing feeling among a lot of players that they don't wanna play lebron only like so much they don't wanna play with lebron as much as this is what playing with lebron means it means that if things go wrong i'm probably going to get the bling and i am decidedly second banana by how do you get a great place even russell westbrook he coexisted with k d in fact katie was the bigger star so paul george looks at that and goes he's not worried whatever we think on the outside about playing with russell he doesn't look at it and go we'll russell's going to suck all the air out of the rear right he's endorsements is gonna have all the attention no i've seen it work otherwise with lebron like everybody takes back seat and it's not i don't even blame him for it's just the reality is it's the media's the.

"The template for what we judge jordan by i can't use that same template with lebron you you go to six temping chip you go to six finals you win six saying you went to nine like the thing that makes lebron unique is his longevity is that he's maintained his athleticism for as long as he has he's been his great as he's been for as long as he has but that's kind of different that's a different category than the excellence within a certain period of time and so i i you know off the top of my head i wouldn't put him second of certainly not going to put him i do you have jordan i i have jordan first and then and then it just becomes you know it's just a mixed bag well let me ask you this do you have lebron had a copay i do not have lebron ahead akobe again if we're going here's the thing i could put him at the top if we're talking about longevity if you wanna say excellence for this period of time michael was never that was never great for that long nine championships michael took a year off in between the three petes like there's a lot of things i could say hey for whatever you wanna say about lebron he never took anytime all he's kept this train rolling so in that respect if we're going to go by that template i say he's done and then there's like all the other things you know the social conscience the the cultural difference the he's he's been such a positive influence on akron an any number of ways like there's so much that lebron has done that i can't say kobe's done some good things michael good goodson they didn't do all these things so if you put it in a particular prison i could put them right at the top but if we're gonna go by kind of the standard that we've used all along the way that i can't we used to debate or espn dot com i don't know we did it for you got everything yeah and we talked about lebron and you saying something this was gosh she probably was still in cleveland it's the first time and you say something that now i really do think rings very may ring true you said the comparison everybody on about jordan lebron yeah he really may be this generation's wilt chamber agree just talk about that yeah just because it's his freak of nature physicality and the position that he played in the skills that he has that just made him different completely different and at the same time we'll had his issues with free throws willed had his you know he could be great but was he great at the right moments it could be up and down and inconsistent he was a great personality he was a great influence socially and culturally but you're right you're you're talking and that's certainly part of it but i just that to me that connection and to win will always need it that other guy and he he was by far the best player in the world yeah but didn't win nearly as much as you would have thought exactly and sometimes i wonder if it's because they did he did so much so well that he kind of did.

"What eight howard beck senior nba writer for bleacher report it's lebron week here at bleacher report i guess every weeks really lebron week in the nba isn't it lebron year lebron month lebron decade lebron era but if the bron week which means that every day of the week we've had stories about lebron by myself by ken berger i think rick bucher is up today thursday about how to wine and dine the king if you would like him to come play for your esteemed franchise piece earlier in the week phenomenal piece by tom haberstroh all the different versions of lebron that you could see as a player depending on where he lands and of course that moment is probably coming soon it's tomorrow night friday night is is when we flip over into free agency officially at midnight going into saturday no clue as to win we'll get a decision from lebron an announcement a an essay a tweet a video from the uninterrupted platform but it's coming soon and we're trying to break it down every which way which is why i put a call out to my guest today howard brian's historic moment for the podcast howard interviewing howard howard bryant got a new book out on shelves right now called the heritage black athletes divided america and the politics of patriotism lebron james makes several appearances in this book for his his his role as a social conscience as a as a leader in in in a variety of areas but howard bryant has also written extensively about lebron in many other facets and so we just went deep on the idea of lebron as a free agent on lebron's legacy not with regard to every other aspect of the game the championships in the usual markers but the fact that lebron broke with tradition in two thousand ten and made a very controversial as polarizing move to go to miami and since then went back to cleveland won a title and now here in twenty eighteen as i've written this week and as howard brian i discussed the conversation has changed rather dramatically yes there are still people who would be very angry to see lebron leave cleveland especially if you're a cast fan yes there will still be people who see him as somehow a weaker as a superstar for choosing to go places to try to join up with other superstars but the fact is we don't hear that particular line of discussion as much today as we did in twenty ten and it's because of lebron lebron changed the discussion he set a new standard he made it palatable or at least more commonplace for superstars to choose their own destiny whether in free agency.

"All of this is and i for me i'm kind of bored with the whole lebron's cleveland thing i feel like i know what that looks like it's lebron taking a another cast of second or third to your teammates and doing everything he can to get to the nba finals but this time having to get past a far more formidable boston team than the one that almost beat them in the eastern conference finals and then running into the golden state warriors and probably losing lebron cleveland bores me i am less excited about the prospects of lebron los angeles that a lot of people are and and i really can't even necessarily articulate why and it's my job to articulate why i guess it's because i've seen the lakers be really good multiple times throughout the course of my life it remains to me the most interesting scenario in philadelphia which is kind of a mess right now because of the whole brian colangelo twitter account bernard thing with his wife and now browns making decisions but he has said look i'm a coach i don't wanna be a general manager and so you just wonder if alta some some dudes burner account on twitter or as wives burner count on twitter could cost the philadelphia seventy sixers chance of getting the best player in the planet from appear basketball standpoint maybe somebody could explain this to me because there you have to prime assets in philadelphia to really interesting assets benson's joel embiid right and i know there's injury concerns about joel embiid is he ever going to be able to get through a full season how durable is he going to be and then i hear people that bring this up and here's where i struggle ok well ben simmons has great but he needs the ball and so does lebron james and so there's fit issues right i mean you've heard this right there's fit issues with lebron and ben simmons and i go fit issues it's lebron james like you get lebron james you figure out a way to make them fit you you figure it out like lebron james fits with anybody and i know there's well he's gotta have the ball ben simmons has to have the ball if lebron signs with philadelphia seventy sixers and vegas right now doesn't love it as much as cleveland or los angeles but if he goes to philly all we really concerned that lebron james would be would have a hard time fitting in or that the philadelphia seventy sixers have a hard time like working him he's lebron james he has the highest basketball like you of anybody that i've ever seen he could play multiple positions i've heard people talk about the fact that he's he gets older he wants to be on the ball less and less you kinda get them and then you sort through it you figure it out by the way early in miami there were some fit issues remember that first year in they started like nine eight or something and.

"Junior we're talking ben simmons for lebron james trades hypotheticals what's going on one of my how you doing good i i think it would be absurd to make that trade to tell you the truth i i i was listening to on the other night and allah like he treated his ea stocks early i think fifteen thousand dollars so he lost out millions today i think doing that would simmons would be doing the same thing i mean when you look at the mouth that lebron has on him it's it's clear he looks invincible right now i mean the men just goes on and on and on but at some point you have to average it in that like he will get hurt and that could be next here i could be after that when ben simmons was resumes breaks through which is probably next year or the year after that you having for the next ten years but you're not sure how have the brunt for i mean i understand the urgency of getting a championship because it's hard to come by the window could close very easily embiid getting hurt you never know but i think there is a wasn't a generation dollar just like the broad and trading him for a few years of brand i think it would be just be a mistake appreciate the call derek the one thing that i'll say is at this point in time and you can talk about embiid getting her but there's a reason we're having this weird rookie of the year discussion around ben simmons right now too it's because injury is already been a part of his history and i would say at this point i would be more inclined to think that have been simmons injury would be more likely than lebron james injury lebron is earned that right for me to say this guy is just been teflon we watch this guy just play eighty two games of the season for the first time in his career in year fifteen year fifteen and even before that what's what's the biggest injury we can point to lebron james that he took a few weeks off a couple years ago because of a back.
