Uh, now looks to try to find some way forward in a loaded Western conference. This changes everything in the NBA and the Western Conference right now joining us now on the hotline, longtime friend of the show, you can follow him on Twitter. At the Ryan Hollins That's at the Ryan Hollins 45 years in the NBA Now one of the best analysts out there. What's up, dawg? What's happening? Hey was going on. You guys doing good man. Hey. So what's your reaction? Is Jamal Murray News? I I know it's new. It just came in Tornado cl after what happened last night. One and prayers up in Jamal Murray on him. It is his mental state of being his family and everything. It's just, you know, injury is just that ugly head of sports that we You know, don't always talk about And what's even sadder is that Jamal Is one of young emerging stars Our league And I know The biggest questions with Jamal again. Why competed against even as a young age when he was he was just headed out of high school, you know, playing for the Canadian national team? Um, you question his consistency. You know, he could score the basketball, but it really had looked like Jamal had taken that next step. It was kind of pushing the customs superstardom when he backed out that Utah Jazz out the playoffs. Shoot back that Clippers out, You know, he made shot after shot after shot. And look like this was gonna be a run for the Nuggets of Go on. Is absolutely impacts the Western Conference You see the window just start to open up the LeBron James and Anthony Davis in the Lakers and the Clippers, because I'm gonna tell you one thing if you're the Clippers They just come out and they need you. They just put hands on. The Clippers ain't nothing worse than being up and losing the lead. So you know, I don't want to say the Clippers are throwing a party at someone else's expense. But you know, there's even more a sense of urgency. But time behind what that team. Can come out and do But like I said, before we even get to the talk. The sports talk just printed up with Jamal Murray and his overall well being. And you wish him healthiest meeting recovered. It was, uh, Brian, Let me ask you this. We know the league had the shortest off season in sports history shorter than any off season for baseball, football. You name it. They want to condense all these games here in April to make up for the losses due to Cove it and Does the league need to really look at How it handles the schedule because they are back loading these schedules in April, when there's no NFL no March madness. And I do wonder we've seen a ton of stars injured this year. They should that does the league bears some responsibility for this and do they need to reassess the scheduling and maybe even the season length. Not even close. When when the players come to the table, and they want that money in a salary cap to go up and you know you want 20 Million and 25 days and 30 million, there's no, There's no complaints there. I think the responsibility falls upon the teams, you know, For instance, the Los Angeles Lakers That's all these? They did not force Anthony Davis back to Ah, Speedy or LeBron James. You know, speedy time, all Those guys. They're taking their time because they know how important valuable they are to the organization. The Lakers went out and got the two pretty much six men of the year in shoulder in her rail toe. Kind of sure up their bench so Right. You had to kind of prepare for the storm. Knowing that you had a short offseason. You can't load your stars with the same type of minutes. And what Cole? Did you show it all season? You are seeing the effect. Look at the Miami heat in the slow start that they came out to. Those teams that made long runs in the bubble are coming out and feeling of. Ultimately, at the end of the day, you know why the league is able to pay players so much. Because they get so much from from the sponsors. And when you cut out the sponsor of games, and they can't make the money that they're making, they might not be as quick to give the revenue Toobin League as they once was. You don't want to go out and lose a big time partner like a Gatorade or Nike or or a McDonald's. You want to make good on your half of the bargain, so When you're talking money, and you're talking business. That's the language that's spoken and you want to get back on track. You don't want to have a funky weird season when we're starting, you know, in December, always and people are doing and start simple or start from here. Only. This is just good. No fact. Good because Is money that players are used in making. As part of the rigors of the season, and it's why hats off to the Lakers and teams that have been willing to dig into their bench. But unfortunately, yeah, we've seen injuries and we see that harbor and hit the top teams in the league that went the furthest Ryan, How much of it? This is something else. We got into how much of it is players playing too much basketball in the off season. Because you're somebody's got, you know, they finish and then you know, you see, like LeBron won a championship and then a couple of days later. Hey, look at this donkey had when he and Wade and these guys are playing. That's like, really, You're going play and pick up, you know, up and down the floor mean is it too much basketball in the off season? I actually cataract counteracted, you know, you know, I'll say it is a guy who played 10 years but not 45. I'd love to play 45 years. Please. Ellie Center. I'll take the 45. But You know, you gotta sharpen your skills and all season and some of the best seasons and I ever had its pro. I kid you not Well, when I played either USA basketball, I competed in a full Julich season and I wasn't just kind of standing around. But if anything, it's backwards. These players now they don't play basketball. Don't play pick up all they don't get out there and all season and play. You know that. It's really a lost art these guys so maybe a mix with these guys. All they do is train and get up shots so they may need to play more basketball condition themselves. LeBron James doesn't take days off because His body is routine is going play and play and play and his body clock. That's what it speaks to. So I don't think that these guys should be playing less basketball possibly play more. Oh, well, right. He play more. I'm gonna say I'm gonna push back against your does the NFL's bear Any responsibility like you're looking at a short term gain for long term pain. If you're like, Hey, we need that money. Because on a C L injury to a scoring machine who's a shooting guard? I know that the improved science and medicine medicine Yeah, these guys are recovering quicker. And it's almost the same. But I'm not so sure about that. I don't know that I would take a little bit of money. Who told you to run your guy into the ground? So as a team, you gotta you gotta load manage your guys. And even if they under 26 27 years old, Jake, you gotta load manager right? I think that's that's on the team that's on the coach. That's on the training staff. With all due respect, so the MBA back loaded to schedule that everybody's playing four games a week, basically three or four games a week in the month of April. So basically in the middle of the plate playoff race in the West, hold up you don't want to have to during the lockout. What's that? So when we had the embassy blackout, you remember it right?.

Los Angeles Lakers Get Much-Needed Win In Blowout Over Sacramento Kings
"Pick up the big win over the Sacramento Kings, they went by 21, you know, what most of the time right at a championship contending team beating the Kings wouldn't be a big deal, right? We would look at this and just say well whatever they're supposed to but given the current state of the Lakers without LeBron without Anthony Davis now without even Andre Drummond sliding down in the standings. This was an important one. In fact I said going into the game. This was a must must win and my goodness. I wasn't sure which Lakers team was a good show up. I wasn't sure if the Lakers were going to approach this game as a must-win the way I thought it was and they did they came out firing. What a performance and let me say this not only did the Lakers need this game. We needed this game Lakers Nation. We needed this one. We needed a performance like this because it had been too long. There was so much negative. Any permeate permeating Lakers Nation? It had been far too long since we've seen the Lakers really play. Well, really put it all together. And of course A lot of it came down to the three-point shooting tonight. They were absolutely phenomenal behind the arc V E 1% from behind the arc 52% if we round up and 48% from the field, they shot better from behind the three-point line than they did from the field not something that happens very often. But still this is certain a time to celebrate the Lakers picking up this win. We know the schedule is going to get tough. We know there's going to be some more difficult roads ahead. But for right now for this moment, we got to take a moment just appreciate what we saw tonight because this was a fantastic performance by your Los Angeles Lakers top to bottom everybody chipped in and he loved to see that.
Redick: Pels, Griffin didn't honor word with trade
"Jj redick longtime veteran fifteen years in the leak. Good player not great good. Though he requested a trade from new orleans pelicans in november and asked them to send them somewhere one he was up. You know not upset but hey drew's gone through holiday. That was a big part of why i came here. And you know. I would like to be close to my family in brooklyn close enough where i can go see him on off days things like that. They told him. Bet you got it. And of course they trade him to dallas so he's upset because he says they didn't keep their word. Here's jj reading on his own podcast. My understanding all along was that. I was going to get a buy out. And if i was going to be traded it was going to be to a team in the northeast where i was closer to home and i'd be able to see my family for the last two or three months of the season obvious that didn't happen. I don't think you're gonna get honesty from that front office. Just objectively speaking. I don't that's not an opinion. i just don't think you're going to get that. But i think i was a little naive in thinking that because i was in year fifteen and you know i had at least attempt to do things right throughout my career and i honored my end of the bargain but in terms of this front office. Yeah i mean. It's it's not something where i would expect. Certainly the agents that that worked on this with me to ever to ever trust that front office again.

Lakers Fall To 76ers As Buyout Market Heats Up
"Fall to the 76ers and the game that ended up being closer than we thought it would be at least at the start of the fourth quarter. Anyway, they do battle back looks like they might make a game of it. But then of course our old friend Danny Green decided this was the night that he was going to make all of the threes. Where was that last season? Danny Green, he just went berserk could not miss tonight and the Lakers do wind up dropping yet another game the slide without LeBron James and Anthony Davis continues, but we're going to break one down. We're also talked about the the buyout Market coming up some players. The Lakers could be targeting tonight. Join me is Ron government from lakersnation.com Ron. How are you doing, man? I'm doing all right, really hoping to do one of these post game shows with a win where we can talk about how great things were without LeBron and AD that'll have to wait for another night. I think God. Yeah. Yeah, unfortunately that is going to be another night. And you know, well this game was going on. I was thinking this is a winnable game. Like I had pegged this one as a loss on the Lakers wreck when I saw the 76 but then when I saw the line up since the Seventy Sixers had out there I thought there's no reason why the Lakers shouldn't be competing with this team and ultimately it came down to one really really really bad quarter. I've killed the lady. That was the third when the Seventy Sixers were just raining threes. The Lakers were just raining turnovers and that pretty much ended the game. Otherwise they were right there, but we've talked about a bunch this team would know LeBron James Davis. There is zero margin for error. You can't have a quarter like they did in the third and expect to win the game and that's that's certainly what happened here tonight. Yeah, when you don't have LeBron and maybe it's not even a quarter. You can't have a bad 4-minute stretch and survive it. that was I mean one of the worst quarters of the Season off of the worst quarters in a couple Seasons, if we're being honest that was really really bad no stats to confirm this but we both thought that they had more turnovers than shots made. So that's not great.

The Black Shark 4 Smartphone Rises From The Deep
"All right so this article comes to us from the android police. Apparently gaming phones are getting more and more popular. I wonder why could it be. People want more power in a smaller screen. The post who. I don't know if powerful computer the complete of video games honor or like a consul. It's it seems to me like it's smartphones. Time to rise and while zombie is keeping up the pace with black shark series. The latest iteration the black sharp for an for pro have popped up in a chinese you can pre-order one. Today with the phones set release to china on thursday. The twenty fifth and international release date has not been set yet. But what what are you looking at stat. Wise here while the black shark. Four pro uses a snapdragon eight processor. Qualcomm's biggest and bad available. It's paired to either eight gigs or twelve. Gigs of ultraviolet fast. Lpddr five ram with two hundred fifty six gigs of storage both models. But those aren't exactly hard to find these days. The more obvious give way that this is giving phone are the dedicated mechanical shoulder buttons on the side flight. The locks away to them pop up like two shoulder buttons on a black shark three they can be bound to touch areas on screen for integration with really more or less any game but if you want the mechanical shoulder buttons you now have that option. The four pro is six point. Six seven inch a. m. o. l. e. the ten eighty p screen with a maximum refresh rate of one. Hundred forty four hertz. Beating most phones it also has to zones of pressure sensitivity as a nema pressure applied. Not just touch sensitive allowing for further integration into games that can support it. It's battery as a forty five hundred m h typical for phone this size but supports fast charging at a completely bonkers. Honored twani watts with a charger included in the box. Family says it can charge ninety percent of the battery in a little more than half an hour. It looks like the video that goes along with two well in terms of cameras on the pro. They have a sixty four megapixel main shooter. Eight megapixel ultra wide five megapixel macro with a twenty megapixel centered. Front camera terms of style to flat. Black version actually looks fairly down. Nice to notice the side buttons. Led triangle logo on the back stays on lit. You'd have a hard time telling its gaming phone. Of course that goes out the window to get the so empty version of its auto translated by the way unsure of the official name. It's layered semi transparent glass shifts around as you look at it and much more flashy but not unappealing way. The phones a chunky and nine point nine meters. But that's enough to include a headphone jack in sight mounted fingerprint reader. The dual sim. Radio works with five g for absolutely intense sessions. You can't quick bond the sold separately cooling module at cedar black shark four pro a starts at four thousand. I'm trying to remember the exact It can't be the chinese currency that they have. But if you're talking about us dollars be black shark for pro is at six hundred fifteen dollars and six hundred ninety dollars respectively as the non. It's it's kind of slightly scaled down version Looks pretty interesting In terms of the i it drops one of the cameras. It keeps the shoulder buttons most of the rest of the hardware and it's slightly cheaper. Probably not a five hundred dollar range for a gaming smartphone. That's unheard of clean. We're sitting here looking at foods. The latest and greatest thousand plus in in north china pop out gaming smartphones that are packed full of hardware intact for like seven hundred between five and seven hundred eighty s manageable. It off but yeah. If you're looking for gaming phone well you might just have to wait for this to be released internationally. But if you're in china Details in terms of prices and such and selections and preorders are available in a show notes for today's episode. So looks pretty cool all right. Moving on to an article begat from techcrunch facebook's clubhouse rival looks a lot like clubhouse right now in and because facebook is a clubhouse rival reported on net like all the way back in february in new york times. Didn't a bunch of other people did but what that product look like or how it will work have been questioned that have remained unanswered however new screenshots of a facebook audio product still under development shows what appears to be a live audio broadcasts experience. It's more of an extension of facebook's existing messenger rooms rather than a standalone app experience. Facebook confirmed with techcrunch. The images are indeed examples of the companies exploratory efforts because they don't represent alive product at this time but the gamut we all know the company said also that detailing what product look like based on these images would be inaccurate ob tech crush said screw. Were pushing him anyway. But keep in mind. It is in development features. That are very different in anything and everything could still change drastically between now and then but images at least help. Face their demonstrate. How facebook is thinking about live audio. Where such a social experience. Good fit within facebook's existing and that's worth considering considering that i don't think facebook wants to make another app i think they just want everybody to be on one app and use that so we do have some pictures that go along with it. Looks like they have like button. It says choose the room type where it's like live audio broadcasts in audio only room to listeners audio where you can start a private audio room with friends. A video button reconstructive private video room with friends in an you can also add people in but it looks very much like Like clubhouse that. I'm still trying to get used to somebody interfaces of the room so it's it's kind of interesting Speak are shown to tap the room. What a represented with a larger circular profile picks room listeners appear below is also a followed by speaker section leads the audience section again much like clubhouse but obviously subject to change the way it's being developed that would allow for rooms that anyone on facebook join Rooms could be accessible from facebook itself. Meaning you would not have to switch to messenger to join the room. When not expanded to full screen room with displays title number speakers in total listeners. He can get an idea of the rooms popularity. So Yeah lebron even looking at it tested it out. Don't secret facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg is both on audio. Of course in fact he's already appeared on clubhouse. A couple of times recently spoke about the product. Chris social audio in clubhouse room hosted last week by former techcrunch editor josh casino investor at signal fire

Lakers Upcoming Game Against the Cavaliers a Must-Win
"Lakers on Friday play the Cavs and on Sunday play the magic Yep. This is the first time ever that a Friday and Sunday game in March against the Cavaliers and Orlando Magic. I will consider must-wins. They gotta win at least one of those two games for me to have any sense of confidence about the team without LeBron and AD, you know, buy them the Lakers might have some new pieces, you know, there might be a different look of things. But yeah the first time in history a Friday and Sunday game in March against two of the worst teams in the league will be considered most wins. Yeah. I completely agree with you. If you look at the schedule that's coming up those those are two of the lighter games the Lakers get then they get the bugs they get the Kings and then right after that. It's just a murderer's row of teams and given, you know, we don't really have a clear timeline on when they D and LeBron will be back like what Ron said those games are kind of month. End of the Lakers want to tread water and stay afloat in the standings because you don't want them slipping all the way down to six seven eight. Now you're talking about playing tournament which you know, I wouldn't be concerned about it. But Lakers are healthy, but given, you know, the covid-19 pet demek the injury that the injuries are being sustained so far. You just never know. So the Lakers just need to find ways to scrap together wins in the mean time tonight. Not a good showing and does not inspire a lot of confidence, but you know crazy things happened. So we'll see. I also just want to throw in that, you know, the trade deadline is Thursday. So maybe guys today we're a little stressed out or worried about that. So maybe that wage muted. I don't know. But yeah, we'll see we we just need to scrap together wins and those games on Friday and Sunday Kind of almost must win at this point. Darn

"From wondering. I'm david brown in this business. Wars daily on this tuesday march twenty third. If you're an art collector with a spare seventy million lying around a rembrandt says on may be out of your reach. But you just might be able to score yourself. A lesser van gogh picasso or like someone last week. You own your own people digital montage. Oh you've never heard of people that's okay. He's not one of those guys. They teach art history class. Which makes it all the more remarkable one of his electronic art pieces just sold at auction at christie's for nearly seventy million dollars even though it only exists in pixels is the third highest price ever commanded by a living artist. According to the new york times people is a digital artist from south carolina. Whose given name. Is mike thirteen years. He's created a drawing every day. He started with pen and paper but now creates art. Digitally the record breaking piece titled everyday's the five thousand days is a composite of the first five thousand days of that project. This was also the first time christie's sold a piece of digital only artwork. It was purchased with the cryptocurrency ether. Another first for christie's something tells me you won't be the last either. So you're probably wondering why in the world someone would pay seventy million dollars for a pack a reproducible. Virtual file right. Something you can't touch or even hang on your wall. yeah. I know. That's what i was wondering. Turns out every day is is in just another pretty j. peg. It's what's called a non fungible token or nfc and if you're thinking is so tell me why that matters. Well you're going to need to stick with me for a moment. On this one in tease us blockchain technology for authentication. Now this blockchain is the same sort of thing that you find in bitcoin right. It captures information and shares it with a network of computers and once shared. There's a digital ledger. That records the data across thousands of computers. Making it impossible to manipulate or so goes the theory. So when you buy an nf it's quote minted to you. Meaning an ownership record is created across thousands of computers around the world. You own the original one of a kind file. I know it may seem complicated on the surface but it really is pretty straightforward essentially techie. Way of making a digital file one of a kind like a physical object even if others tried to make a copy. It's taking a photo of a famous painting. It's not worth what the original is worth. Entities allow users to own bits of video songs or images. Their popularity actually began years ago with a game. Called crypto kitties where people could buy in trade animated cats after attracting top venture. Capital firm says investors some crypto. Kitty sold well into the six figures.

A brief guide to NFTs
"May have heard news recently about the auction house christie's announcing that an artist by the name of people sold a piece of artwork for more than sixty nine million dollars big price tag. The hurt the third highest price for living artists. Here's the thing though. This piece of artwork isn't actually a physical work of art that you would hang in your home it's all digital it's only digital. The work was sold through what is called an nfc. it is growing technology. That is being used a lot recently. You've probably heard the term. Nf teased quite a bit in the news recently. Some examples of this of the nba has a new collectible service called nba. Top shot where you basically are collecting highlights from nba games. So for example you might see a dunk. That lebron james makes in a game you can go to this site and you can bid on that highlight and quote owned the highlight and that is how the service works We've also seen some other people really get involved in it as well Kansas city chiefs quarterback pat mahomes launched his own digital art gallery using these tesla ceo elon. Musk recently sold a tweet of his as an nfc which seems absolutely bizarre but it gets to the big question for some of the listeners out there potentially what isn't nfc. We're going to try to break it down a little bit here. We have a lot more of this available on tech dot usa. Today dot com. So we're gonna try to give you a cliffs note version of this but to explain it simply as simply as you can for something as complicated as this. Nfc stands for non fungible token so the way it works is if you're looking at something that's fungible. It is something that's easily interchangeable. Think about money for example if we each have a twenty dollar bill we can exchange twenty dollar bills and the values the same and it really doesn't make a difference with an nfc or a non fungible token each of them are unique. Each of them are different. So i might have an nf t and you might have in an f. T. we can't trade them value for value for each other because the values of different because they're unique they're different in a variety of ways. So that's what makes them non fungible so basically what it is is because it's digital. It's not a physical thing you have. It is basically a piece of data that that you own something. So in the case of the bidder at christie's auction he owns a piece of artwork in the case of someone who saw a really cool james harden layup or pass. They owned that clip online on nba. Top shot And we've seen some other weird applications for this technology to But the way it works is it's all done using blockchain technology now for the listeners that are saying to themselves. okay wait blockchain. i don't know what you're talking about here. so blockchain works like this. It is basically. It's kind of like a cloud storage database and what it does is it tracks transactions of items or assets. Let's take something like bitcoin. For example which is a currency that. I'm sure you've heard of quite a bit Something that a lot of people used to buy things online. So you have. Bitcoin and bitcoin is built on blockchain. So what happens is when you have this blockchain technology it is tracking every time someone is using. Bitcoin keeps track of wind. Bitcoin is transferred from one person to the other for a purchase. And that's essentially what it's built on so if you look at all. The history of bitcoin has an open blockchain. It's essentially an open database where you can review the history of all the transactions that have been done through blockchain. Now you don't see people's names or ideas or anything like that but it has a regular tracking of where this bitcoin is going and so that's kind of entities are instead of a bitcoin. It's this and f. T. and it's the same principle where it using this blockchain technology it's tracking every time this nfc's ownership is transferred. And you have a ledger and accounting of every which way this has been sold or resold and so on and so forth. You know you obviously can do this with bitcoin and economically. Do this with stuff like a tweet or an artwork or in the case of a article. New york post. Someone did it with the sound of their own farts. Which again if someone's willing to buy that sure that's great but there you go. That's that's how far we've gotten with all this experts. I've talked to have said that. One of the big benefits to this is the security Because these blockchain's arc run by one central company or one central administrator there on peer to peer networks which means they're spread out across lots of computers. So there's really no one place these are stored and so because they're spread out. It's much harder for someone to say. Go in an altar records that are recorded on a blockchain. So that's one of the big things and there's a lot of talk to from experts that this might be the wave of the future one expert. I talked to recently had said that you know one possibility. Is there used to track land titles and deeds so for example instead of dealing with those mountains of paperwork that you have to deal with. When you're buying a house or selling a house or things like that you would do it all using this blockchain technology and it would be done on the computer. And it'd be much simpler wireless paper while signatures and that. That is a very fascinating us. Obviously we're very far away from a lot of this stuff. All the stuff right now feels very strange in new. And there's really a lot of hype around it. So that's why we're seeing weird stuff like people selling their own individual tweet as an nf t- It makes everything on the internet. Feel like it's a commodity Whether that lasts again. It's too early to say. I think you know. Obviously there's a lot of hype around this and it's definitely worth watching because you know i if this all you know goes as it seems like experts have suggested i mean this could really changed the way we do things in terms of buying and selling and dealing with all those Types of this on the internet So we'll see where all this technology

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. He sat up there looked into the cameras and the great Doris Burke, the wonderful Darras Burke, the comparable Darras Burke. Stay. Quote, you know you got you know what you got coming up here. Le bras. I don't even want it. He won't lie. Just don't wanna think about it. I just want to enjoy this moment, etc. And what I'm saying is where you are that great. And you got kyri you don't give a damn consensus speak before the finals even begins. You don't do that ask, you, do you think the Lakers are getting a superstar this summer yesterday?.

"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..

"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.

"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.
