"Do you think that we've gotten enough evidence so far to learn anything about how it's going to work in half court settings, like you said, we have played, we've seen the Lakers a lot in crunch time. They've played a lot of minutes in crunch time so far. Some of those games have been with LeBron, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook. Have we seen enough about how they're going to try and operate in those late game settings, offensively with all three of those guys on the court because to me that that's really going to be the telltale thing of their season? How do they make these late game playoff situations work with Russell Westbrook kind of playing frankly off the ball because the most devastating action that any team in the NBA can run point blank period in my opinion is a LeBron Anthony Davis pick and roll. Yeah, so answer your question. We haven't figured they haven't figured it out, right? And we've seen Fox one interesting thing that happened earlier in the season was against Memphis. It was, I believe the third game of the season, they ran this LeBron Russ pick and roll down the stretch of that game. And one, you know, I think it was the second time they ran it. I want to say Russ LeBron hits Russ on the short roll and all of a sudden Russ is going downhill steam catching around the fetal line. It takes a couple of dribbles. Steven Adams is defending 80 who's on the weak side block, Steven Adams rotates, what is rusty, dump off pass AD gets a dunk and one, and that to me is like, you can't do that every possession, but that is the kind of symbiosis that you want to see from those three where it's like leveraging LeBron as a pick and roll threat as a ball handler as just a playmaker give Russ a simple responsibility, screen, roll,.

Fresh update on "lebron" discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Would think they deserved a call or something like that and they would stay behind to play to complain and the Lakers were getting scored on the other end. That can't happen. You can't do that. You can't spot teams. The Lakers are good enough to spot teams points in transition because they're too busy complaining. So it was nice to see that cut down on a little bit. Although part of that might be, they were winning the game. So you're not going to complain as much when you're winning. All right, somebody said 80 at the 5 long run. Yes, that's from Kyle on YouTube. I do think Anthony Davis will be the starting 5 long-term, particularly when Trevor ariza comes back. Now, Frank Vogel has already talked about this a bunch that he thinks that ariza being back in the rotation sort of unlocks the Lakers to play more Anthony Davis at the 5 because the problem that they've had has been a couple of things. If you run AD at the 5, that means that LeBron, whoever, if it's Carmelo Anthony, whoever else is on the floor with you, sometimes it's a small one, it's THT, get stuck defending some big wing players. And that can be a challenge where if a reason on the floor, you can do that. You also get beat on the glass a bit more. So if AD gets pulled out to the perimeter and particularly if LeBron was not in the game, the Lakers didn't have a lot of size to rebound. So we saw in the last few weeks, we saw some sets where it was Anthony Davis and four guards. And the Lakers not surprisingly got crushed on the glass particularly anytime that Anthony Davis had to go contend on the perimeter. And so when you have a guy like ariza, who can come in, he's not a huge, he's not going to pull down 15 boards a night or anything like that. But he's got to size to at least be a factor there. And so that makes a difference in that area as well. So as Trevor rising gets healthy, I do think we're going to see even more Anthony Davis at center..

"Good point. Scorpio sky, what's up Scorpio, good to have you here, chatting in man. We gotta have you on the show again soon. Said, wasn't crazy about the starting lineup. The defense was better aside from that people need to give Westbrook his roses. He's been tremendous lately. Yeah, hasn't this been the better version of Russell Westbrook that we were kind of expecting from opening night. And what we keep hearing, that little kind of whisper from OKC fans, even from Houston fans, the rust takes a little while to get going, that he starts slow every single season. That maybe that's true, because now we're starting to see good Russell Westbrook. Westbrook has been much better over the last few weeks. If this is the guy that you're getting for the rest of the season, that's gonna help the Lakers tremendously. Now you can argue that he's still not that top tier superstar level player. It's still not give the ball to Russ and he's gonna lead you to victory every single night. That's fine. You can argue that he's not worth his contract. It's fine. But if they get this version of Russell Westbrook, he is going to help them win basketball games. How many? I don't know, but he's going to help them win. If they can get this version of Russell Westbrook moving forward, and he absolutely deserves plenty of credit for that. Speaking of which, let's just do it. Let's just do this. 360 award of the Lakers stars, Anthony Davis, LeBron James Russell Westbrook three 6 zero. Who gets it? Who was the best out of that group tonight? Was it AD who again? Grabbed 16 rebounds. By the way, the Lakers won the offensive rebound. They got hammered on the offensive boards. Last time, they played the Celtics. Lakers won the offensive rebound battle. 13 to 7. And this one and the rebounding battle, 46 to 34. That's dominance on the glass, which Lakers have not been this season. So AD grabs 16 boards. Was it LeBron James? 30 points, four boards 5 assists, was it Russell Westbrook, 24 points, 11 assists who gets the 360 award chat. Let me know what you guys think. Let me know what you think. I'm seeing a lot of LeBron. I'm seeing a lot of Russ. Oh, I'm seeing.

"Crime going up here in California. I'm going to discuss whether or not Don Le Mans should be in as much trouble as Chris Cuomo for Don Le Mans involvement. Heretofore unknown in the Josie Smollett trial. What? Also. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has slammed LeBron James. Not for saying after the death of Armin Arbery. Black people are afraid to leave their homes, didn't fight them for that. Not for saying that black people are literally afraid every day after the Shooting of Jacob Blake. Not for that. Not for refusing to condemn China or the NBA. For its abuses to the 2 million Uighurs who are in. Relocation slap slash concentration camps. The suppression of rights in Hong Kong, the disappearance of the tennis star. No, no, no. Didn't slam him for not referring to any of all that. Slammed him because he did a dance holding his soldiers after he did a game winning shot the other day. Kareem said there's no reason to embarrass your opponents. Green has a column by the way and Time Magazine. So the other things that LeBron James has said or not said, I didn't bother careen, but dancing on the court. Well, that tore it.

That the Troy pistons player Isaiah Stewart, and the guy was old bloody. 20 man brawl on the court. What he said about the colonel rittenhouse, just as it was so he mocks his tears. He's never said a word about China. The guy is in the realm of being horror. See, this is an interesting question. I live in LA, a lot of Laker fans here. See, I have always been stuck in life. I think morally for anything else I think about right and wrong. I couldn't root for the Lakers with LeBron James on the team. I just couldn't. So I'd like to and I feel bad for Laker fans. Feel bad for any fans. I mean, how could you be a fan of a team that has BLM? On its uniforms. Members of the team that wouldn't stand for the American flag.

"Yeah, it's definitely if they go to the expansion which everything is said, it will be two teams that you want to go on the odd number. Like they had a couple of years ago when they brought in. Who was it that there were 29 teams now completely as out of my brain when they brought them what Orlando? They brought in Orlando Miami. The original Charlotte came in together. And then they brought in the bobcats. Yeah. Is that what you're thinking? Yes. Yeah, I think so, right? Yeah. But whatever it was, that they don't want to be back to an odd number of teams. They want to be on an even even number, so yeah, so there will be two teams that come in for sure. Would that so we'll see how that all kind of comes together with that. So yeah, it's going to be interesting. One other piece of news. It's not exactly breaking news here because this has been out there for a while and it's really not NBA news, but it will impact the NBA Canada effective January 15th, you have to be fully vaccinated, tent or Canada. As a foreigner, two Canada. So you will be if you're not vaccinated, you won't be able to go play in Canada. So that's January 15th, with that. So they go in. They won't be able to go. But also says anybody wow jaded a little bit of color. Any unvaccinated NBA player with temporary Visa status. So that's essentially a non American born player. Leaving the country will be unable to reenter the United States according to a memo obtained by ESPN. For example, a player would be unable to reenter after playing in Canada or traveling outside the U.S. on all star weekend.

LeBron James Mocks Kyle Rittenhouse's Teary Testimony
"You know, some normal people might think it a bit cruel to mock an 18 year old for weeping on the stand. LeBron James didn't think that was a problem. The mainstream media beast didn't mind mocking him. Putting down his mother, claiming the mother is guilty of some crime, eviscerating this kid, and, you know, I keep saying kid, he's an 18 year old young man he's an adult. He was technically, I guess a juvenile when he participated in the Kenosha riots, but you know, a caller pointed out this family, his kids had a tough life. Single mom reportedly homeless for a period of time, raising three kids. And here's this young man, trying to protect a friend's business in a community he worked in, don't buy the media lie that he's some out of stater who traveled, you know, you know, hundred miles to get there. That's a lie. Him illegally carrying the gun turned out to be a lie. The fact that this is even racial in this case is about race is a lie. What's race got to do with a white person on trial for shooting three white people? How do they do the race? The haters just want this guy convicted because he shot three rioters who were involved in violent destructive actions in Kenosha, Wisconsin that
Commentator Gregg Jarrett Discusses the Riveting Rittenhouse Trial
"Greg Jarrod, welcome back to one on one. Great to be with you. Greg, you you've been in this tour tree business of the intersection of law and politics for a while, let's just put it a while. Is this I'm not a lawyer? Greg, and I come to this as somebody who sat in the back of a court once. When I got a speed, I was driving too fast and I had to go to a court salmons and I thought I've never been to a court. So I went in three hours early and I sat in the back just to look at what a county court was like as a newly minted American citizen. And it was fascinating. But it wasn't what we witnessing on TV screens across the nation for the last week. Is this a normal trial? Is this witness badgering is the judge saying, don't you be brazen with me? Is this par for the course? Give us your expert opinion on what we are seeing. Well, courtrooms can be high drama and, you know, centuries ago before television before the Internet before core TV where I worked for 8 years. You know, people would flock to courthouses in courtrooms in some ways it was their source of information, but it was also their source of entertainment and this certainly has not been entertaining, but it has been riveting to watch this unfold. And you see on the screen, Kyle rittenhouse made a compelling witness. He broke down. He sobbed. You know, I really hate to see somebody like LeBron James mock it with laughing emojis if LeBron James had actually watched much of the trial. He wouldn't have made such a stupid

Have that kind of logic of of those Folks in those offices have history with daryl. So you know that there they can have conversations and there's absolutely no reason whatsoever for the sixers do a goddamn thing before training camp before the season starts is the best thing about this before the trade deadline. I mean i think that they're well positioned to just chill for a bit. Here's what barkley said on the mike mass analysis show. He's talked about clutch. Was you know how that group works. They try to trade their players to where they want to anthony davis. They had better deals from boston. Maybe even new york. They're like no he's gonna play with. Lebron is not gonna play. They just bullied. The league team. Got to stand up and say i paid your guy. He can't bully me a trade him and meet and have me take some trash back. I'm hoping somebody in the sixers organization got some stones barkley said we have not seen a team degan before and the quick thing you know. There's a persecution complex of them look for so amid this point the most powerful agent is always the least popular agent. David falk in the nineties was basically presented as the anti christ and blame for every bad thing that happened the league in the nineties. Scott boras same thing in baseball. Everybody had scott boras when you're the top agent near attached to the top guy and you're swinging elbows and get clydes what you want and do all that stuff. You're gonna take shit. I don't like some of the stuff they do at the same time. This is a referendum on them right. What how much power do they actually have. Because in this case philly has no trade.

Ornie god to find a way to keep rudy gobert off the boards like they beat us before so for your prediction of guaranteed gold medal. To happen those are two things in particular. We gotta make sure we take care of. absolutely. I expect the us to win this game. But i'm glad you mentioned kevin durant because he has been absolutely phenomenal fourteen. Usa and because the bucks were so dominant against the sun's winning four straight games. We almost forget. Just how good kevin durant was in. That nets buck series. This has been a great summer for kevin durant a great bounceback year and expect him to carry this momentum from tokyo into the new season which is going to start in like three weeks. Start soon and i expect the nets to be on top of the eastern conference powered by that man kevin durant. We normally have an nba champion. Once every twelve months. Well this year. We had to in almost nine months. And i agree with you. A great summer and playoff k. d. but the regular season is going to start october. So it's gonna be interested for me. Not necessarily the nets but the entire nba particular contending teams. How they respond to the short off season. Well this has been a short off season. But it's been very busy for the los angeles lakers. They added a lot of new pieces. And we might have mentioned here on this program and many other programs have pointed out that some of those new pieces are a little old new pieces. Lebron james took to twitter to fire back at the critics and here is what he said. Keep talking about my squad. Our personal ages. The way he plays he stays injured. Were passed our prime minister. Senator etcetera etcetera. Doing one favorite. Please and please keep that same narrative energy when it begins. That's all i ask. Thank you jalen later deleted this. Why do you think you've been with tweeden. Delete lebron you know how much i love him. Here's the deal. David jacoby so put that tweet back up there. Okay so are. We allow to acknowledge that the lakers had the oldest team formed paper in the history of the league. Are we allowed to actually say that. We allowed to point out a that. Anthony davis and lebron james likely due to injury or low management won't play eighty two games. This year is that okay and last but certainly not least. I'm glad he didn't use the term hating but that's what is construe by so many people they you've heard me say this for a decade. This generation uses the term hating incorrectly. Okay just because. I may disagree with you or have a differing opinion in yours. It does not mean that. I'm hating and also lavar victim off so let me get this right though. Favorite lebron james. Who where to miami and play with boston way with the cleveland. Play with kharian love ken..

This is also part of my inspiration to growing up. I was ever put in a position. Rock succeed at doing anything. And i can make any kind of dollars anything as far as capital That i want to give a lot of it back. I wanna give You know a lot of a back to mock community. Because i understand what those kids are going through on a day to day basis. Because i've walked those same streets of tackle dose same corners. I know the hardships of what a single parent household kid ca- feel like and the pressures the adversity and all that stuff that comes with so and to see that change change of happened from your efforts. It's gotta be unbelievably rewarding. I mean yeah we hear. Some of the family sean. Will you know you guys. I mean just to see some of the. He's come until you know. Either you know the falcons he members is that my school or the teachers that op changed their lives or tell my mother because now my mom is huge into the foundation and she welcomes allotted. I she part of it. what yes. She's a. She's like one of the head advisory boards of my foundation where basically have an apartment complex here is where i welcome a lot of the underprivileged families and and we set the mobile room and board that we're not in a position where they can afford they all living so You know it's pretty cool. Mom welcomes all these families in. That's awesome says she second like an ambassador. Yeah exactly exactly but you say you came. You know you talk about your own childhood and wreck to recognize. Look i really struggled. And so i wanna be able to give back and really do it in a way in a really practical way a lot of people talk about it but you actually to it you know. Look at sean. Sean grew up. You had a tougher childhood and stuff and you turn your back on your community. You've kept things simple. Imagined spends his money on. And i said i send people truly free them. Yeah and jason doesn't know what the jason jumped align famously in line for the first iphone so we all have our own. Let me just lebron. You could've incarnation of the point. Is this my point is you could have gotten you've had you've had so much success. You could have just sailed away on a yacht and never looked back. He's finding time to do that too right. We get some hours each year. Yes we just hours at relax. We'd have you been on a yacht with lebron and you have how to get to the daily mail right so so you're a kid so your kid you're hanging out and you're thinking boy. If i can ever get this jump shot to really go down in a consistent way. I might be able to get myself to a place where i could either get outta here or stay here and help give back to this. What was the moment when you thought yourself. Oh you know what this is going to work. And i think i've got a very realistic chance of making it. And now i'm starting to think about what i'm gonna do if i do. Make starting your plans about philanthropy and you know. A lot of kids fantasize in school. When i'm older. I want to be a teacher so i don't have to do any of the score i can like. What was that moment like. And what were those first few plans you remember. That was there for like the beginning of my junior year i was sixteen years old. I'm right after my sophomore year in the summer. Going into my junior year. I was on the cover of sports illustrated. That'll do they. They dumped me. The chosen one at sixteen years old and pressure no pressure right right and the jinx of the cover on top of it all right and instead cover it a so a lot of nba execs. We're talking and they were saying that. You know if i entered the draft you know right now could beat the number one pick and you know but you know what those so i felt like i seen the success that i was having and the reason that i knew i wanted to come back and give back to my community is because i knew the success that i was having yes ahead to do with my god given abilities and my talent and he put in the work but the support that i had for my coaches and my friends and my mom they stayed on my ass everyday like listen and this is this is what we do and we all listen. We have an opportunity to make this beard and even other people are saying. That's not fuck it up like. Oh you know so you know. It's tough when a sixteen year old because less than me and my friends we wanna do. We know first year in. We want to go to house parties. We want to go you know. Hang with other high school kids and do kid things but you know right. Jason knows about the kid things driving off the warner brothers. Lot when you're sixty but listen. But with the brian with your kids your own kids. What an incredible story you have to pass down to them about your struggle and then how you turn it around and how you're giving back. Is it something that they get. If they don't get it to. You grinded in their brains. You got to keep looking at me. You gotta keep blinking my star. You have got to learn how to give back. I mean it's so cool to have a dad that that does all that there's absolutely nothing. I can do nothing. I could do to give them the same moment or aspirations or like us ri- that i had to. I mean you can't teach ambition. No i i grew up in akron. Ohio in in the inner city and the hood is what we call it. The projects and my kids are growing up for years in miami on south beach. And now for five years and brentwood. So you know when we we're here for those four year. When i was in cleveland they were younger. You know we're in. We're now in the suburbs. So i went to public schools and challenge in public schools until i got to high school because of my basketball ability but these kids are growing up in private school so the one thing that i can do is still the morals and what we do in his house. Yeah and this is how you need to represent yourself when you leave the house as a young man. I got two boys two teenage boys. I've got a daughter. I seven years old. So you give them the blueprint and then you gotta let them. You know we i. I hope that they have some adversity. You know they need some hardships. They hope they find some along his way. Because you really only know who you are and you only going to be over to come back from situations because the best teacher life is experienced. Yeah and i bet you lean on mom a lot to write.

"LeBron gonna get shot. It's unbelievable. And our buddy bar still big cat. Saw this yesterday from pardoned by take. He had such a good breakdown of LeBron from the shoulder, and he was writhing in pain rolling around in the middle of the lane in Game one against Phoenix. And while that was going on campaign, it's amazing to show all these former Bulls and the campaign bounce back campaigns getting in a scrum. Off to the side and big cat points. The Saudi goes watch LeBron here. No one's paying attention to him, so he gets up. And grabs his shoulder and walks over to where campaign and that strong is going on. Where Awas because everyone's attention was just there, and it just got broke up. So he wanders over to where everyone was watching where the scrum wise and then he collapses. Okay. I did not see that he falls to the ground Me start, He starts writhing in pain once again in a different spot. That's it's like, Hey, you guys aren't paying attention to me. Don't forget about me. I'm hurt here. Pay attention to me. It is something. He's a tough dude and I respect him but this nonsense about him getting poked in the eye and the shoulder. I understand that the ankle's jacked and it's holding him back. But but one of the reasons why someone it's one of the reasons why people are Will locked in. Some people are reluctant to like him. Yes, it really is. Yes. Now I like him. I think he's you know, he's a great player. I do think he's tough, but this is a reason that people point to as to why they may not be the biggest LeBron James fans. Do. You guys have a play tonight? Sons? I think the sons are two point dog at home. I think most people believe And like a lot of Syriza, like Miami used to do this with the Bulls. The Bulls would win one game. You know, First it was in 2011. They won that first game, the Donk Taj Gibson over Dwayne Wade. Then a tip dunk at the end, and I thought the Bulls were winning that series. And then the heat actually won the next four. I play the Sun's tonight and then, like the year after that, Nate Robinson stole Game one in Miami, and then the Bulls got swept right after that, the gentleman sweep again. So you've got who I would take the Sun's tonight. You would. Yeah. So because I've heard a lot of the MBA guy say this is where LeBron exerts himself. This is where they get 11. But I don't then point Don't know. Are they healthy enough? What do you guys think This is when you find out if the ankle in the shoulder for real or not right, because if he is truly going to go off, and and he was just You know, trying to get a read on the sons for the first game, Which is what? Something that like you mentioned Sylvia that LeBron tends to do then? Yeah, I would agree. Lakers. They're gonna win tonight because LeBron is going to figure them out and look, a D was awful in Game one. Yeah, I think that's the that's. The important thing is, they think Davis isn't going to play that poorly tonight. And so I would go up. Oh, I'll go. Lakers. Really, I would be as worried about LeBron, but I think anything Davis will have a much better game. It'll bounce back, Chris Paul of Good to go. Yeah, Money, Williams said yes. Your day that he used. He was a little sore, but it's fine. I think that I think that the Suns win this game and the Lakers They returned Serve when they get home. Then they even it up and they may even when the series Yeah. Yeah, I don't. I mean, the Lakers. They're still a favorite to win the Syriza. Yeah, Of course. I don't want much. They're only like minus one time. I believe three of us. I think it's a dollar. Me and waddle have the Lakers in the NBA Finals. Oh, yeah, I just Yeah, I do. You had them as well. So all four of us picked the Lakers to the kind of I don't think Black has the Nets. I have Lakers next 76 years The three of us had Lakers next. That's what it is and looking. Look, this is this is a much about the sons being a hell of a basketball team as it is. What the Lakers air doing. I mean, look, I wouldn't put a lot of money on it, but I take the home team getting the points. Feeling good about itself is a dog it like in the soul. Sprinkle little taste small sample size of the game so far that we've seen with two games. Lot changed from one game to the next, You know. Miami Milwaukee played a really, really close overtime game. Milwaukee Bloom out in Game two by the Blazers beat the Nuggets in Game one. Nuggets really responded in a big way. Last night s O. I like we've seen the Syriza's change game the game, so I don't know. I I would probably lean towards the Lakers. I like that there. I understand what you're going for there. The better team at home, getting the point. That's pretty good. I would probably pass on the game and I probably will not gamble on the game. But if I was, I'd look for a little value on the sons at home. Getting points already. I've I've just been Re energized by the N ba. I wasn't following a lot during the regular season. I don't think a lot of these teams took it seriously. A lot of the court the bubble teams who did well struggled this year. Um, but I think these the just the fans, it Z unbelievable to see these atmospheres now returning, and I loved watching the next even though they lost like Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson and What? The Nets the Nets. Also, the three guys stepped up in the second half. Yeah, I mean that That was a great performance, but a lot of people criticizing the NBA that they have two really good games on it. Nine o'clock tonight, then one's nine and the other one's 9 30, but Clippers. Dallas is a really good game, and it's only MBA TV because aren't they got Laker son? Didn't they say did tie loose say they're going to put Leonard on don, such in this game for the entire game? Chris? Isn't that what they said? Why not? Yeah. I mean, I don't know, but, Yeah, Sounds good. I mean, why Why? What do you waiting for? I mean, listen, he's he's their best player. Quiet. Aren't you supposed to be one of the best perimeter defenders and all the lead? I know. No. There was some criticism of Kwai after the game that he is now turning into an offense on Lee type of player. So if they do make this move, maybe he does show like Nah, I really am one of the best all around players. But there are people coming at him after Game one that he's only focusing on the offensive side the ball so Makes sense. 3323776 is a caller who wants to ask us the question is LeBron really tough And also you'll hear Jay Cutler's shocking response when he finds out that we're just infield supporters that's coming up next, you're Listeningto Waddle in silver on ESPN 1000, Chicago's home for Sports.

Yes, because he's going to need some big health off. See how come around how the magic be at the games smiling and I don't know. He's at bridge is on fire with the Lakers, and I gotta believe. Some Laker fans as much I've no magic since nineteen eighty first time I interviewed him and I love the guy off the field off the court. But again, this is not a good look for an ambassador of this organization, and I love it. It's gonna be a Cold War now.

My friends have a birthday party. We are tight. I'll I'll get back. She would change the locks on the doors and she should family over friends. And here's the big problem. Lebron considers D Wade family. Not the Lakers. So on the bronze mind, he did choose family. And that's why this year has been an utter disaster. He has never committed to his teammates. He's never committed. And once he got hurt and was no longer playing with them for three hours a night. He had no relationship with any of them yesterday. They're all standing up there.

"lebron" Discussed on Around the Horn
"Well, at least you're leaving the door open Blackstone. Well, the interesting thing to me in this argument is we always critique LeBron James from looking ahead. Some sort of minus something we can take away from him. We never critique Michael Jordan that way we only talk about his greatness. And I think that's really unfair to LeBron thought always one of the most amazing things about tire woods was the eight years one hundred forty two consecutive times. He did not miss the cut. And I think the eight years that LeBron James has been a fixture in the NBA finals is an amazing accomplishment. Given the fact that he played with three different teams three different teams. Seta teammates, three different styles of basketball. That's amazing. You put that with the rest of his numbers. Take nothing Aladdin what he's done. Yeah. I think Jordan, the edgy had is getting smaller and smaller and probably. Has disappeared. The one thing he could do that. The celebrate can do a score. And LeBron score more points at him. So bras, more complete player than him overall. The one thing Jordan still has is he's won more championships with the same coach same team. That's really all to my mind. That's all you can say, I think if you're on the fence with LeBron this might have pushed you over because points again, Michael Jordan's four bronze to hear you say that because that is literally a compilation right there if the points per game, LeBron's never gonna pass them in that regard. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't ask anything more annoyed and asked me to say anything. We'll let me just say Jordan did lead the league in scoring eleven. Lebron did it once he was consistently head and shoulders above everybody else playing with them. And he didn't just do the one thing that he could do better scoring. He finished every time every time you send him out there. He won. That's not the same for a little. That's not exactly true either. And this gets the Blackstone point that he's competing against the myth of six and oh in finals, he was six and nine eight every here is those other nine losses don't disappear because his team failed to make the finals. I always have. But one point should be set. Lebron still playing now and I asked if you Mark down because he's missing the playoffs..

"Lebron needed reintroduce himself to defense Spain. Go ahead. I think he did any pulled that trick with the pizza where he made it seem like he was going to be there all day long. And he never showed up like that's just not the way you ingratiate yourself to a fan base. Because if you do want to be involved in all these other things, you still have to convince people you care about the basketball. And I don't know that he's done that Israel. He does seem to take things a little bit. Personally as Bill said, he didn't even acknowledge the crowd. They're probably because they booed him early in the game for missing those free throws in Miami. When he left a lot of people were complaining say, wait a second. You never thanked the fans they kept pressing the president pressing. And he never said thank you to the fan. So I think there is some sort of I Bishop there. Well, if they were going to the playoffs that would be a sad to the press conference. Didn't hold too. Up to hand out this this is getting to fourth on the all time scoring list. It's not like this video is going to be shown eternity. It's not that big of a milestone, but it is a big deal because it is Michael Jordan. And now, let's go to the tail the tape, right? He's now pest Jordan. In career points, career, rebounds career, this career blocks. Postseason scoring postseason rebounding postseason assis- postseason block postseason with. However MVP's career points for game. And of course, championship record is in Jordan's favor. Jordan, six nine LeBron three and twelve about to be three and thirteen sarahspain. I'm going to start with you. And you're in Chicago. But we'll let that slot is any more light shed on this goat battle that were having the debt here. I think we can now officially say that LeBron is a compiler, right? Just kidding. Kidding, listen. This isn't going to change anyone's mind, passing Michael Jordan, and scoring total points is probably not going to change anyone's mind, they probably decided which side they're on. But every achievement that he gets makes it harder to argue that he's not at least as impressive as Jordan, depending on how you wanna term it. The greatest player of all time the most accomplished player of all time the most consistently rela. I mean, it's so hard to say because the number one things that people use to support their argument for LeBron being greater is the consistency of all of his stats, right, rebounds, points, everything else assists. And then also the fact that he went to eight straight vinyls Jordan hadn't gone to baseball though. Who knows what would have happened and he never lost a championship? And he never wasn't the MVP. And if you had a game right now who would you pick to probably win it for you for me. It's always gonna be Jordan. I think that killer instinct, but those intangibles are totally based on your perspective. So let's just say they're both amazing. You can't compare them. Different generations, different rules, different everything. It's just getting harder to hate on the Broncos. That's still something with tears. You already saw this coming years ago. Right. We saw we knew LeBrun doesn't get hurt. We knew he's going to keep putting up these numbers. You knew he was gonna pass Jordan at some point. But as Sara said, basically, the fans whichever side you're on you're going to keep moving go post to make the argument, whatever you wanted whoever you like best. And in the end that what is what it should come down to me. I think LeBron's the best basketball player I've ever seen play. And yes, I'm old enough to have watched Jordan play. But but I don't think I'm not gonna argue with anybody. If you say, hey, give me one season or one game or one shot. I want Michael Jordan fine. You can take Michael Jordan. I don't think this really does anything to change the more down Israel for the Braun missing the playoffs. This year. Not necessarily knows a lot affect not necessarily. Okay..

"Earth moves. Yeah. It did. And I believe it was legitimate. Please come back. See you can't be, you know, it'd be really nice. If Karen I got back together. So he had to take it a step further. Oh, he I beg. He either. Please come back carry. The main. Those strike me not swift type he obey. He's singing. He's singing to him. He's trying to serenade. That's betty. So I don't I know what it is will LeBron adopted it, and he was flat out singing it in the back. So in other words, LeBron is begging. Yeah. Yeah. Pathetically begging desk watched it. And I was like oh interesting on desperate here. I can't you know what right now. Right. What I watched. It midwest. Molly. Okay, with that would be the reaction of most able. Because she's not completely immersed in this. And she just from a distance. She just looking at like, he's begging. That's whatever you there. Would you live? It's not that hard to figure you baby. Shannon unaccepted. Okay. That'd be laud way. One hundred just want him striking tight. It'd be big. Yes. No. Yes. In the last sixteen years, everything LeBron's warranted. He were for it'd been pleased at what? Got a. Well, I've told you before would he take kyri back career? Yes. Okay. I still think I would ever want to come back. He was done with it. And I told you he used LeBron to send a message back to his team in Boston being Nicole Murphy pro with me, I'll take it back tomorrow. You would would. Well, that's a hypothetical. Okay. Is it do I? Hypothetical. Why you gotta take it that far I'll just making it about what about shuttered shops into cold Murphy, We we just bringing casually. But anyway, as I was saying before I was offered this information. No skip Skippy. A Raza me, I'm tired of you, putting this narrative out here that LeBron James is begging can't come off said, look, this what I tweeted instantly when I saw what? Media. Somebody sent it to me. How you get it followed by what is somebody settling? You are Michael Rapaport Senate calling him out or divulging. He just sent it to me because he sought mud like, hey. I was like what? And you. My first thought was tweeted this somewhere. Michael Jordan is shaking his head. Because this is this is so beneath LeBron. Joel shaking his head when he saw that pep rally yesterday. He look I believe they gotta talk radio to stay talking about. We're still here. That's what Michael Jordan is up in arms about Michael Jordan did not play in the National Football League. But he did play in the NBA and sodas the guy who tries to say that he's Michael Jordan that he's better than Mike. No. There are a lot of people say, oh, no not a lot of a lot of. He said, okay. You know in so somewhere Michael was was chortling to over hold on a second. Now last week. It was reported that Tom Brady walked into the locker room is that I'm the bad is on the planet. You had no problem with that. But when go James walk into somewhere out of the interview, I think with him maverick rich Rich Paul mave Carter meal, they often around he's gonna go. He's I'm I'm getting what he used for what proved it was. That they came back from three to one down. Right. That cinched it right there that I'm the goat. And yet Draymond got suspended. Then Kyrie hit the last shot that closed. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. John pass hit a last shot. One of one of them be time. Steve Kerr last shot that wanted NBA title tick hall. That would play. What's Ron was just out of the way, you do it? First of all there was no time out call. So that play for John Paxson was not called Har is Greg got the ball any kicked out John packs? So there was no play call. Thank you very much before. I was living. It wouldn't like it was game seven. This is don't care if it was game twos. Game. Like, then hive?.

"Let's go. Braun and Kyrie keep doing things lead. People to believe reunion is in the works. Carry recently called abroad to apologize for how he left Cleveland and then LeBron posted a video of himself on Instagram. Singing funny, walk song rewind, and he just happened to tag kyri in the post. So Shannon, audio make of all this. I don't make anything out of it. I don't I don't. I think I don't look at this as a reunited, peaches and heard moment reunited, and it feels so good. I don't think that's going to happen. I think a lot of people, you know, sometimes you get, you know, you break down you never had this happen. But sometimes you break up with you know, that let me faded. Sometimes you break your girlfriend you and her break up and other like a year something she called you out of the blue birth. I go through your mind, we get back together. No, you're not. She just wanted to ask you a question. See how you would do it. That's doubtful. That happen. I that have high with vehicle really, you do, you know, how do it? You'll see every day. How you doing and seeing her from you, the while you see me every day owns give me. Do you do it? But any way of our saying skip Bayless? Understand that Kyrie reached out to LeBron and apologize way. He handles some situation because he's probably going through a similar situation him being the leader in the young guys are not understanding or not trying to understand what he's trying to convey. But I think it's a stretch to think that because cavalry reached out that now we automak start to try to put two into together and said, okay and about linked back up in LA. I don't see that happening. Skip bayless. Maybe that was a song that they play when they were a in in Cleveland together. Maybe, you know, fairly want headed going on that. But I don't see it. You don't see it either. Because you tell me everyday every time the carry we just tired of it. He the Neal with it anymore. He just wanted to be gone now. He's gone. And now he won't to come back. So I don't think I think LeBron is like LeBron loves his music, and I just think he's tired. He tied to rehab it. And he has some time. Handy. Say you know, what let me get the internet buzzer. Re boom. So LeBron had a history of parody posts, you know, where he had like he was always sarcastic hokey fun or having fun with so, and so or or just trying to even if he's trying to to show up kyri, someway, I would I would roll with everything you just said, but he doesn't have a history this when he posts it's real he's usually passive aggressively trying to make a statement about something this wasn't even passive aggressive just blatant, man. He tagged him across the top, man. This is like. Try to LeBron tamper. No, he's not tampered. It's just a pathetic -ly desperate public plea over Lee's comeback highway you go. I missed by closer. I need my closer and LeBron happened to watch. And I'll bet if I know LeBron he did watch Saturday night boycott was closed, and he couldn't close it all the way, but he three big late shots gets Golden State. Oh, they'll finally Steph and clay were all over him, and he missed everything from the baseline late net game. But if they adjust boxed out correctly and gotten dream on second free. Throw miss kyri would have gotten a last shot. I wouldn't bet against him. He was he was special. But I don't think look. Like, you said, there's a reason why LeBron is is hard for me to imagine the more well known athlete than LeBron. And he moved the needle advertisers agencies. Endorser they know that. So when he tweets something or he speaks something..

"But I just want to ask you this way. Gimme the one thing that people have gotten most wrong about that story. And the one thing that you think was the most important point that has gotten overlooked because I feel like that's really what we're both talking about when we talk about how how this stuff gets extrapolated and sometimes just buried under the weight of everybody else's chatter rather than what was actually on the written page. Well, I think it I think those are -fluenced what people have gotten wrong, and what was most. Misrepresented about the story kind of dove tail which is this idea is the notion that nobody wants to play with LeBron. There are plenty of guys who want to play with LeBron. There are some stars out there that would happily play with LeBron. But when we were or at least they've indicated that they would Damian Lillard would happily play with LeBron James, but he's not gonna foresake what he has in Portland you go play with LeBron in LA. He'd rather be the captain his own ship and try to win a championship in Portland as long as Orland is amendable amenable to that. And and they are then then go to LA, and you know, try to just try to swing for the fences and get one with LeBron the the the the aspect the unique aspect of where we are right now. This is why I wanted to examine it. Is that we're in this place where the stars potentially available through free agency? This summer are very much like LeBron Jane their ball handling dominant mall slash power forward. And so whether it was Paul George reopeing with okay, see or Kevin Durant or coli Leonard like they all see themselves as on the same plane is LeBron. And so a little bit like when we saw I was always curious about this dating myself. But like when when orlands when Orlando was rooting around, and they had all the free agency money, and they went after hard after Tim Duncan, and they were going after Tracy McGrady and Grant Hill, it was like, okay, you me, Tracy McGrady, and Tim Duncan. Are you gonna Grant Hill? And you give me Tim Duncan. That's a nucleus that I can see where now you've got a power. I'll Grant Hill and Tracy McGrady, even if grant stays healthy kind of duplication at one spot. I don't see how like you're going to be good. But I don't know that you're going to be great. So when it comes to this. I mean, the Genesis of it was that we were here. You know, why wasn't the guy who are falling all over themselves to go play with LeBron. And when that hap- didn't happen previously. We always blamed it on him being in Cleveland, certainly that was a certain part of it. But it really is. It comes back to the gambit that the Lakers find themselves in which is you know, we we got all these potential free agents coming on the market, and we're gonna snare LeBron James not not because LeBron wanted to come to LA and join forces with another superstar that wasn't the primary motive for him. But nonetheless, we've got him. We're gonna go get another one. But it so happens that the guys are available are not guys that. Are interested in playing with LeBron because they see themselves as as LeBron. So why go and and duplicate that and stand next to the guy that I really want to succeed in the in the NBA universe. And I don't know that that was given nearly enough credence or attention. It was Kevin Durant. Talking about the toxic for environment, and that has to do with just the the tongue bath that that LeBron in in KD's..
"lebron" Discussed on Open Floor
"Does not what he meant. There's a big joke between hey, look, I'm in the top three. Now, I'm on mount Rushmore, which is where he was a couple years before that. Right. Remember when Jordan was turning fifty at the all star weekend. And everyone's saying, oh, you know, mount Rushmore who's on mount Rushmore and everybody kind of. Agreed. Lebron had made it there's a big jump between on mount Rushmore and like chiseling over George Washington and ABRAHAM LINCOLN and saying, hey, it's president LeBron I'm here. Well, but even if you talk about the Rushmore presidents, I've sure each one of those presidents felt that they were the greatest president in the history of our Republic, and I don't believe LeBron from being like, yeah, I am the greatest I think every player who's in that conversation. Probably feels that. They're the best of all time. I looked to be honest. So I'm distracted now because if Roosevelt really thinks that he's just got on there because he knew the sculptor. If you really thinks he was a better, president Lincoln and get them out of here. That's a real facts straight out of a visit to the actual mount Rushmore national park. I appreciate that. Yeah. Look, here's my thing on the Bron thing that I found most interesting was the difference between LeBron's comments and the comments from Jordan that surfaced in two thousand nine where he came out saying, you know, I I'm flattered by the comparison. But it actually makes me feel uncomfortable because I never got to play. Chamberlain and all that bullshit. I mean like like. Jordan, definitely thinks he's the greatest player of all time and definitely talks about it freely. Among his friends, and we'll probably use profanity to put other contenders down and more power to because first of all I think both you and I agree that he is the best player ever. But I was struck by kind of the difference in Aarhus. And I think that both LeBron and Jordan are executing the same blueprint, but under completely different media conditions at LeBron is perceptive enough to realize that he can come out and say, he's the greatest player of all time now and people will will appreciate his ambition and appreciate his honesty and celebrate that and he won't get crushed for it. Whereas like Jordan came from a different era when people wanted to see the greatest act humble and sort of like take it in an understated manner. And and so I just think it's kind of interesting the way like people wanted to see Jordan dominate and people want to see LeBron kind of get triple doubles that. I think there are a lot of parallels to their Aero's where both of them were doing. Everything they could to make themselves the most marketable athlete on the planet, and and that just manifest very differently. Twenty five years later. It's a fantastic point one of the best points you've ever made an open floor history. We're living agile we're living proof. I mean, if you go back fifteen years, I bet you were trying to work up the courage to send an Email to a link that something that you wrote hoping that other people will put it on their site. Now, we're out here. Begging for people to follow us on Instagram. So we can show off our vacation photos. I mean, it's a change. It's very different. It's one hundred percent change society. And I think what thing on the Braun coming out and saying it he didn't get very much of a new cycle out of that comment. If you consider the historical gravity or of that statement it lasted twenty four hours, and it came and went so if I was him, and he was like trying to test drive that idea that went back to the factory for modification. That is how it played. To me if felt like a trial balloon from like LeBron Inc and maverick Carter and Springhill productions like just slip it into this random documentary series that we're doing with ESPN and see how plays and then we'll revisit this over the summer. I feel like is isn't the last time LeBron is going to call himself the greatest player of all time and again with a certain generation that plays. Well, people like to celebrate his freedom to call himself. The greatest player of all time. I just think. If we're talking strictly in objective terms, Jordan is just a little bit better across the board. And they on Jordan's video too..
"lebron" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"You that your talented or great. Easy to be humble. Nah. Really? No big deal. I whatever if people come up and tell us for not great we get defensive. That's very human. When people come up and tell you of your talent you get humble. When people tell you of your deficiencies, you get defensive. So there's this thing out there right now. Michael Jordan, LeBron who's the greatest now LeBron James has his own TV show and on his television show recently LeBron made this acknowledgement, let's roll the tape. That made me the greatest player of all time. No, everybody was just how they were greatest team of all time. Like there was a greatest team ever assembled for us to come back. You know, the way we came back in fashion. I was like you did you did some special. Okay, now after that the Michael Jordan fan boys came out, Michael Jordan would never say that by the way. That's exactly what Michael Jordan says privately for years, but he was better than Barkley better than magic better than bird better than west better than well better than Kurram, but publicly people dug up a two thousand nine interview with Michael wilpon and talented, Michael wilbon, and Michael Jordan where Jordan said, well, if you ask me I'd never say, I'm the greatest player. That's because I never play it against all those other people that represented the league prior to Michael Jordan. Well, what are you know, in two thousand nine when Michael said that he could be humble there was no great debate. He had been elevated by all the media all the fans, he was the greatest he spoke from a different place on shocks. I'm not the best. Of course, he was telling everybody he was the best. He was so petty. He wouldn't let Isaiah Thomas on an Olympic team. You saw hall of fame speech, but in two thousand nine different place because when any of us are told granted acknowledges, the greatest, and then it said to our face all gosh. Shucks. I'm not the greatest though, Michael was telling everybody, privately it wasn't close. The Bron James in two thousand eighteen comes from an entirely different place despite his success despite blowing past his contemporaries, despite even the second best player. Kevin durant? Not having nearly the impact around the league of LeBron despite being close to a billionaire despite statistically an analytically being the best player ever. And it's not arguable. He's told these not the greatest. College has shows that LeBron is insecure. No, it shows that LeBron and Michael made these comments from a completely different place in that. We're all human. You. Don't think Michael's insecure about LeBron really? That's funny because I looked up this morning. The three players that Michael has most complimented. Westbrook. He says Westbrook's the closest thing to me the quotas. He's amazing. Really, you think Westbrook's was strict LeBron. He's also quoted as saying recently, quiet. Leonard is the best two way player in the NBA. He's also multiple times complementing Kobe Bryant who by the way grew up idolizing and acknowledging idolize, Michael Jordan, so Koby Westbrook and coli Michael is a few sieve with this praise. He has complemented LeBron once when Donald Trump took a shot at him, and it wasn't really a compliment. He just took team LeBron site. You don't think Michael Jordan, keep score? You didn't hear the hall of fame speech wouldn't let Isaiah on the Olympic team. You don't think Michael Jordan? Keep score. Complements westbrook. Colli Kobe never compliments LeBron by the way, remember years ago that deflate gate thing with Brady. And and we always thought we always heard from manning. I love Tom, and Tom I love manning. I mean, they obviously played each other. But all you heard is they were so close they liked each other..
