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

"The Clippers in the same building are healthy, rested and go 9 to 10 deep. So now Avery Bradley is not around. He's a starter, and Rondo is not around. He's a riel high I Q Rotational playoff guy. This is not a championship team. Oh, and LeBron deep down, knows it last two years. Basically, it's been LeBron Anthony Davis and just a bunch of stuff. And this is the downside. This is why I think Kevin Durant, who doesn't have Michael Jordan's legacy, yet he didn't have LeBron's legacy is making a mistake. Choosing Brooklyn. You're not choose in Brooklyn for basketball, you may be choosing it for happiness. Not choosing for basketball. Less of a coach less of a point guard less of a roster, less stability, less winning less of a culture choosing Brooklyn for basketball. You're choosing it for other stuff, So it's a little bit of a cautionary tale. But in the course of Michael Jordan, I got it. He was the best player ever. He was exhausted. You watch the documentary. I mean, it was like every championship was just, You know, if Michael was the best player in the world was being tackled for years, and I totally support LeBron and I totally get it with LeBron. He's number one or number two all time, depending on how your worldview of basketball He's not fall into three. And for the two. She's not going to one. He chose business. This is the downside of choosing business. Tom Brady chose the Buccaneers. He chose it for football. Look at the roster. I mean, go, go. Look how Vegas changed Tampa Bay. With Tom's arrival like Tom chosen for football receivers. Tight ends. Coach Payton. Manning chose Denver. Ahead Hall of Fame corners. Great pass rushers. Very good receivers. Peyton Manning went football and maybe basketball and football cultures. They are different. I mean, basketball players make so much money off the court with shoes. Once you get a few titles, what do you care? Let's go to the business thing. It's fun. But what this morning no Avery Bradley No Rondo Clippers go nine deep, Totally healthy, Paul George say was the best I've felt in years. Championship stuff is over. When you choose business over basketball, you need a bunch of brakes to win in basketball. And the West is so good. The point guards are so unbelievable in the West, and now you lost your two best defensive guards. Rondo and Avery Bradley. I like Alex Caruso. Come on. He's never proven anything in the postseason. Casey piece talented. I don't trust him in the postseason again. Caruso and Casey Pierre Nice, Bradley Rondo. I've seen be great when it matters. The downside to choosing business over basketball. I don't think LeBron is losing any sleep. But what you're seeing with the Lakers. You're witnessing it. So this weekend. Very interesting. So this weekend Cam Newton has is very prominent on Instagram and he took to instagram and he's all fired up. But he's all in and it's highly entertaining. Here's Cam on Instagram. They never seen its can. They never seen a casino forgotten Cam.

"Chants why setting up his free throws and by the way that was technically a road game for the Lakers I didn't you talk about lebron's effort he's thirty five years old this is the seventeenth professional season all the miles on his legs and he's had pedal to the metal from day one this year you even got it the Lakers are up by nine ten points late in the fourth quarter on Sunday and lebron is diving for loose balls he's trying to take charges it's like whites you don't have to do that that is worth respecting that is unbelievable and you also have lebron as a brilliant ball handler taking the ball up the court the clippers on defense Kawhi Leonard Paul George R. great defensive players so what is a prime do we run some pick plays we look to expose Lou Williams book to expose montrezl Harrell late we are avoiding Kawhi Leonard of Paul George who played a bit like guys would not play together all that much this year so Matt Moore the action network says he still has the clippers as favorites out west narrowly over the Lakers but when lebron Anthony Davis are playing like that that's tough and the biggest argument one of the biggest arguments for Yanis I've heard tonight from not more and those of you on the phone is well I mean lebron James Anthony Davis yes other top five player with him Khris Middleton is a real good scorer but outside of that I mean Yanis is not left with as much is left with that middle ten in the Lopez brothers and you saw the last two nights a loss to Phoenix a loss to the nuggets though in addition to god's not playing Middleton and brook Lopez out of the box sacrificing seventy wins for playoff rest I think rightfully so but yeah yeah I suspect are going for V. P. I understand just how different the bucs look when he's not on the court but let's not act like lebron James is just riding Anthony Davis's coattails it's great to have at the Davis but it is cruelly here clear that lebron is still the engine that drives the Lakers and just two years ago lebron James carried a god awful Cavaliers team to the finals what a one game one against the warriors and it wasn't for an epic brain fart from J. R. Smith so what Brian James has been the most valuable player in league history one could say if you look at where teams have been postal Braun and pre lebron and just year to into this Lakers experiment at the time many people myself included said all lebron signing with the Lakers that's not a fast all decision that's a Hollywood decision not so much the case we're seeing lebron came there to win as well and when is what they're doing again your phone number is eight five five two one two for CBS.
Clippers’ comeback leaves LeBron’s Lakers with plenty of Christmas regrets
"Mantras ends up on Lebron and then you come back down quite got the ball and now Danny Green's on them. And then the Lakers run a screen with pope where I think heartless was on Pope or something and they ended up getting Switzer. They could get Lebron going at beverly and again like I said. These weren't transition matchups. And at that point I'm like all right stop. Stop doing this Because this isn't this isn't fun anymore. later on in the game you know it was a Anthony Davis trying to go at mantras. which didn't really hurt the clippers? He hit a jumper. He missed another jumper. They did an awesome out of time out thing that will get you on this time. Now we're Vogel Got Mad. and He kinda called like another quick second time out where he got mad about something they did and how they were defending Kuwait going to his right off that horn stuff and The the Dow time out play was incredible but it was a lot of straight. Anthony Davis. What can you do against mantras again? Find Clippers pass that test and then it was Paul George defending ending Lebron straight up and it. It wasn't terrible but you know it's not something you do even with Paul George at his length and everything. You're not GonNa just let that happen George actually Lebron did get it going after starting. Oh a seven from three and then you look at the closing groups. The Lakers went. Beverly Shamet George. Kawhi by mantra as the Lakers Rondo Green. Lebron Anthony Davis after Lakers went with their accuse me the clippers went with their closing group at eight minutes left The Lakers brought in Davis at seven. Twenty Dwight was still in. But then this is the thing to always look at. Okay wait a minute. This was a game against maybe their best opponent they went with. Anthony Davis the five with those five minutes to go. Oh and I mentioned all of those matchups they're a little bit earlier The outta time out was awesome. It was a hand off where it was like a ball reversal van. Gundy mentions handoff. Lebron gets at the AD slips screen donkey. We go and I'm watching this expecting the whole time. Davis is going to go off. This is GonNa go off and it didn't really happen Offensively for what the Clippers did they WANNA WII really good post where I have these concerns where I go as Lou Williams holding the ball a little too much when you have George and cold out here with two minutes to go to close in a close game like what are you doing any the answers both. Yes and no because there was one possession where you looked like he was gonna run it down to the clock where he had Lebron on. 'EM EYESO- no help and I'm Mike is just going to go with Lebron and not let anybody else touched the ball here. Because I don't know that I love that despite loose scoring prowess But they didn't do that coadjutor. Really good post position coming from the right block to the left block and got fouled by Danny Green it was good foul you got fouled again. He hit all of his free throws. And that's really kind of what happened in this game. Is that the clippers. Made their last sixteen free throws throws and the Lakers didn't really know what they wanted to be. They they just kind of went one on one match ups and the shots didn't go in and it's very important though after after the Lakers get the ball back with shacklock off down three Lebron's going at beverly. I almost didn't have this in the notes and I just double checked here by the way I looked at it and go. Okay you know. Are they going into the clippers. GonNa foul. They're up three. They don't Lebron had a hard time. Kinda getting free a beverly beverly got his body right into them. Am I mean that guy's unbelievable defending bigger guys not that he's GonNa shut down Lebron but he did on that possession and he blocked a shot and my least favorite review in sports is is when the Guy Swipes at the ball out of your hands like science on the Super Mythbusters Slow Motion Cam is gonNA show. The ball usually always getting like be out out of the shooter's hands last. But the intent of what you would always call was. Okay if you have the bond somebody swipes it out and it just happens to be that a molecule. Your pinky is the last thing to touch. It's the ball. I could still off the other guy I I bet there's people listening to this that are disagreeing with me saying that it's it's it's better this way. It isn't better this way. It sucks this way. And and I'm the furthest thing from really being a fan of either team so has nothing to do with it. I just don't think that that's really. What the spirit of the rule is and I know they reversed it and they called it out? That's your ballgame But I I hate it I hate it
LeBron, Lakers Hold Off Pesky Hawks
"Lebron with thirty two in the victory to one a one ninety six win over the hawks Lakers improve their road win streak to fourteen consecutive games lebron with thirty two lebron Anthony Davis first time as teammates that they each recorded twenty five points and ten rebounds in the same game they made the work pretty well together what about lebron and his son being teammates at some point the way my body feel right now post game no absolutely not but I mean through the grace of god in progress of health we will see what happens but at the end of the day is not a problem is that my son can make it to this level but we don't even discuss that and we don't even get involved in that we live every day by every day and how he can continue to be a great teammate you know it'll be a positive role model to his little brother and little sister and you know when you leave the house continue to to you know holding James you know last night

"Way. Sacrifice yeah absolutely makes makes those decisions that a lot of other guys with that skill set don't make those kind of sacrifices not competing for legacy for to prove anything to anybody but himself playing with house money at this point that the end. And the Dangelo part I I will say that I can see a scenario play out where they WANNA get older. What I mean by olders just somebody that's maybe closer to the clay and curry's age that has the experience and has maybe that playoff experienced the Angelo it doesn't have it? I know we got this little run in Brooklyn but they got some options. That's why that was such a key signing for them. It gives them a piece that they didn't have obviously once Katie less super young Jordan pool splash nephew they're calling them shooter out of Michigan First Round draft pick. I like the warriors a lot great coach great owner great G._M.. Like what's not to love other than the fact that Claes hurt if quays healthy. They're the favorite easily. Can you had mentioned before the James Worthy had said that Anthony Davis was the best two way player yet again and you're right. We don't typically think of big men as two way players in that regard. It's usually small forward small forward or to guard you know swing men who can cover the type of scores that usually dominate league in two thousand nineteen. It's the last time we thought of the best two way player in the League as a big man I guess would either be Dunkin or Garnet. I Dunno I mean alasia on. I was even go back before that I always Dunkin ever the best defender in the league and was a really good defender but yeah I guess probably don't think of big guys in that way I mean and one of the things that I think the Lakers really do have going for themselves is as much as they've gotta hit the ground running you know I mean like they've got this opportunity in front of him where there's no dominant team. There's no dominant favor with for so long. It's either been the warriors or whatever team Lebron been on. They need to hit the ground running Lebron. Anthony Davis I think at least on paper complement each other really well like in a lack of redundancy Alan that I think is going to serve them well as they look to get this thing going yeah this. This is going to be the question to me coming into the season. I agree with you anybody. Can you know obviously come out of the West. <hes> I heard Ireland this morning talking about it for the first time in the N._B._A.. In years you got eight to ten teams right now the parody across the board East and the West the question. I'm going to have for the Lakers that we're GONNA have to figure out I think it's going to come down to these role players. What what is Danny Green become for the Lakers? What is Avery Bradley become for the Lakers? What is Jared Dudley Kyle Kuzma? I think there's there's some teams out there right now that you could talk about their role players you like. I know exactly how that player's GonNa do with that team. Those are the questions questions that are left for the Lakers. If the role players deliver Lakers got you know a team that can win an N._B._A.. Championship if they don't we know how important the Oris are and the like these are the players that make the difference. That's the one question I have with the Lakers and I think there's going to be a little like Lord of the flies with that to some extent and that the cream will rise to the to the top because contagious call. Oh Pope Jared Dudley Avery Bradley McGee. They're they're not all going to be on the team at the end of the season like Lebron has flipped over a lot of those veterans throughout his time. You know think of Cleveland a couple years ago and they brought back D. Wade Derrick rose yeah. Those guys didn't play in the N._B._A.. Finals for Cleveland so I think to your point join and they gotta hit the ground running the first couple months because if he comes to January jared Dudley he's not giving them anything. Goodbye won't be on the team. Let's bring up a new veteran from San..

"Yes in a seven game series because of Lebron Anthony Davis Georgia warriors if they're healthy and I would also pick the rockets warriors to me. I just mentally. I don't think they're quite there next year. I think it's like a gap Utah. I don't buy into that I do for them. I think we saw that in the it's just they've handled even your son De Ngelo Russell. You know that I love Russell okay. Oh I love Russell. I think that it's not it's not anything to de Ngelo. It's dream on clay in Steph. It's that like I think there's been a rally around the flag thing if clay had been healthy all year he's GonNa come back. I think around the All star break and he's going to be good right away. It's just I don't know there's something there where they lost looney. I'm sorry they keep looney. That's the one thing that they do have they lost they lose cousins. They lose they lose Livingston and I just think that Livingston was kind of he wasn't very good. Wait yeah alright so you're so you're look if you don't have to twist my arm very hard to put the warriors right into the mix again. I'm just kind of thinking with losing durant and the what curry and Draymond we're GONNA have to do to carry the team through the regular season. I don't think they're going to be a higher seed and so I think that I just think that the year after his playoffs though right that's for sure yeah for sure again. I love how they play Steph. I've always loved. I just think there are a little bit of a level below and ultimately in a seven game series. That's where to me. Healthy Lebron Anthony Davis make the biggest difference so last night on to get to the east thing with the teams that you mentioned Milwaukee in Philly. We were talking about Philly on the broadcast because early Summer League game was great last night in the second half early in the game. It was a kind of a little bit of a blow out so we were talking big picture N._B._A.. And Mark Jones and for Sheila and they brought up Philly and I jumped him like guys I think Philly's roster is pretty stacked. Who's taking the last shot there and whose shooting threes there like who's consistently softening up the middle for them by shooting from the outside inside? They don't really have that Josh Richardson is they're interested in Harrisburg he yeah those guys are pretty good shooters. They're not shooters shot makers. I wouldn't consider them shooters and the other thing is I run off screens a ton correct for threes like redick man. I mean they'll hit threes there amount of threes but they're not like knock it down every time like there's no J._J.. RETTIG on that roster they're Nasty Valley Nellie or defensively they're amazing amazing amazing using for sure but who's taking the last shot Josh Richardson Miami tried to do that for years and that didn't work out so great so he's not that dude and I don't think Horford that do necessarily as you run a play for him. I don't embiid is not. I don't know if you had that Guy Right now and neither Simmons yes so there may be Tobias..

Duo Russ in hardened the new duo Oh twenty-seven percent and once again Kevin Durant Kyrie irving only getting eight percent no one finding them intriguing is oracle in other words and much to the dismay of many many people around the country. Maybe not necessarily where we're originating from southern California but much to the dismay of a lot of people in the country Los Angeles is where it's at for basketball except this time it's divided with the Lakers and the clippers and I will just tell you that there is a Laker Fan who's currently working on the show who just rolled his eyes notice. I said his is a see has to deal with that. Hey could be worse. Pal You could be like is in in May and you can be a knicks fan and you could think what you want about about Kyrie irving teaming up with Kevin Durant but never in my wildest dreams that I ever think the players of that calibre would choose the nets over the New York Knicks but richest done a good job covering that over the a year so I I won't repeat everything that riches said about that subject matter. It was nice at the Knicks to bring their entire starting lineup to the summer league. I will say that yes and it was also nice. That's three of their projected. Five starters got blown out in a game in the summer league as well. That was very inspiring. That was very inspiring though I I will say I am happy with R._J.. Barrett I think he's going to be okay.

"lebron anthony davis" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"It's very exciting. I don't remember a time in my life where we had like fifteen good duos so I'm going to take the. We're GONNA play a game here together. I don't know how this ends up okay because I wanted to surprise for both the audience and myself and you and everybody buddy so I took the top twelve duos in my opinion the top twelve duos and I wanted to have a scoring system that I don't know what the final score will be so my scoring system depends on my formula right so I believe duo should be based on two things one. Just what's their talent okay one through five one. It's not that talented five okay. It's great and then chemistry. This league's fit league all right so we'll they work together because stars don't they don't win titles in this league. It's pretty simple if D. Wade and Lebron though not perfect figured out a way similar games to work together and so their chemistry wasn't perfect but their talent was so absurd tired and they were smart enough to kind of make it work Kevin Garnett Paul Pierce Rondo for a couple years was a perfect fit right it all worked they all play defense so we're GonNa take all these duos and and let's just play along radio the on T._v.. Audience so let's start with our annual report card. Let's start with Lebron Anthony Davis F._M.. Okay their talents five Anthony's the best big man in his Prime Lebron will be one of the top two players in the N._B._A.. So I'd say talent one through five. I'll give them a five now. I'm mulling go three on chemistry because this 'cause I've watched Lebron Kevin Love and have watched Lebron Chris Bosh the Lebron big guy is a little problematic Lebron tends to at times lose his confident in his jumper. So what does he WANNA do drive to the basket and score over smaller defenders but Anthony Davis spends a lot of his time ninety percent of his buckets around the basket so again. These are too high functioning basketball players but I don't think the chemistry will be flawless. I think it'll be very much like Lebron begs. We've seen this I mean I. I'm going off what I've seen <hes>. I don't think the chemistry will be as good as some other chemistry so that's my okay so let's go to the second one this is I think the second looks like you know Cohen Paul now. I'm not going to give them a five for town because Paul George is not nearly as good as Anthony Davis or Lebron James or Kawhi so I think he's more of a four Kalis a five so the talents a four and a half but I think they work hard-working nose down. Not a lot of drama defense offense can both at a jumper both respect each other. They have some similarities here but they're not bald dominant so even though they have similarities. I don't think they're ball dominant so I would give each of them four and a half talent four and a half chemistry all right. Let's go to Westbrook and James Harden all right talent. You can't deny it. James Harden is offensively the best one on one player in the League and I know you think I'm crazy on this but westbrook is a world class talent.

"Players the rest of a roster. They've got really got three players. Lebron, Anthony Davis, which is pretty nice start, and calicoes MMA. But look, you need shooters, you need to fenders you need, you know, big who can rebound and protect the rim. And you just you need a Rosser. What Toronto just showed us is that it you know, as I also wrote it takes a village. And I think I might have stolen that line from somebody. But you need you need role. Guys high level role guys high level veteran roll guys. And LeBron does that better than anyone? Because he's the guy what finals and he's won championships. So where are you gonna find your shame Batty as and Rashard Lewis in reality? Where are you gonna find? You know you're a. i hesitate to say you're smith's you gotta have some so you've got you've got to have a supporting cast that folks you can't just say well you know what by one more max guy if you can get to the room and it is still with minimums that's a really tough road to go and what this team needs is maybe you know again green marcus morris you know both of them were free agents patrick beverley maybe taj gibson those guys you need and you can't just assume you're gonna shop in the bargain basement and get a bunch of minimums those guys are gonna command decent mid range salaries so i think whether they've got twenty three million under the curse scenario whether they get thirty two million if they can rework this and get the timing right whatever the number is i think you spread it around three four maybe five players and and get that rest of that cast because you're going to need i mean like you say it's it's everything they need everything except for the two forward spots or alternatively you know maybe anthony davis is playing small ball center lebron before or whatever it is you have a lot of openings on that roster and you won't so have you have to build in time for this roster to kind of mesh we've seen this team's before it happened with the heat when lebron went there where you get you know three stars together in a takes a little at least half a season sometimes of full season to get acclimated with each other of what you do when you do it how you do it and plus anthony davis is now going to be playing an important games he's going to be in the spotlight now where's in new orleans nobody cared what he was doing on a nightly basis at least league wise now everybody cares what he's doing an every single game and i think just having that media onslaught they're going to be interesting if you get kimball walker who has not had this in charlotte you come in and it's lebron team you're coming in los angeles expectation levels are through the roof i also got a factor that in as well Absolutely agree on all counts. And you know Davis has never been into spotlight like this. Anthony Davis is kind of a low key, dude. How's he going to handle that every day? Now, the, the benefit of LeBron taking a lot of the burden in the spotlight and the spokesman role. So he didn't have to do it all. But seriously, there's gonna be fifty people locker after every game after every practice every shoot around, there's going to be people surrounding him. I it's, it's a like nothing. He has experienced before it. I know he's been in all star weekend and all that. That's once a year. He'd never been deep in the playoffs. He's never been in LA as as as a focus of, of that market. So that all matters, you're right about the supporting cast to that. It's one thing to get supporting cast into build it and build it. Right. And we've never seen Pelinka do it. He's, he's still a relative rookie. Can he pulled it off? That's the skepticism alluding to in the column. And then if he does, yes, now, you need time for those guys to Joe, but there is no time because LeBron turning thirty five in December. And everything is now and that's always the case with LeBron even when he was in his prime. So imagine just how ramped up the pressure and the expectations are in year, one of LeBron Anthony Davis together with LeBron coming off the toughest year of his career in terms of injury and a brand new supporting cast around them that has to figure it all out a brand new coaching staff led by Frank Vogel. There's a lot. I mean they're going to be they were installed. His championship favorites the second that. So, you know that that's a lot of change in judgment, and figuring out on the fly for a team that people are expecting to go to the finals. Would you have the Lakers as the favorites in the west? Oh man. I mean momentarily penciled him in because the warriors are broken and the rockets are in flames. And I just don't know that I trust any of those other teams. But at the same time they're all in it. I mean, you know, the rockets could pull it together. Pick up third guy and they're off the racist. The jazz are making a great move, getting my Conny they deserve to be in the conversation for winning the west. The thunder will make a case to try to prefer winning, the west the Denver Nuggets of the Portland trailblazers like there's gonna be some semblance of parody for once which we have not seen in a very long time and mostly because the words are broken. And, you know, the Lakers will be in that mix as well. But there's a you know, we just don't know what they are yet until the rest that roster still. And by the way, what if clippers land Kawhi Leonard? You know, throw them into the discussion too, so. Crowded field, which kind of fun Howard. Thanks for joining us. We appreciate it. Enjoy the draft. Always push. Dan? Thank you. That's Howard Beck bleach report. Take a break back after this.

"And to get a home court advantage. You gotta get to about one sixteen one fifteen if you're Toronto and play really great defense one fourteen. Okay LeBron, Anthony Davis. There's fifty four needs seventy more points. And I think they're negotiating against themselves. I really do Anthony Davis is only interested. He says, in two teams remember the pelicans came out and announced Kate. We want an all star. A potential all star and two draft picks. Why did they announce that because the pelicans want the Lakers and the Knicks to feel a little fear? A little. Oh, it's slipping away. But remember for the team's trading for Anthony Davis? They're looking to compete for a championship quickly. You can't do that. If you give up three good players, you can't do it. So. I think the Lakers are completely in the catbird seat. I mean join I talked about this ten minutes ago. I think at the trading deadline, the pelicans at all the power and screwed it up. Because they got emotional and Dell dams and everybody freaked out. They could have had six guys. I'm the Lakers. I say Kouzmin Ingram, take your choice you pit. We'll we'll we'll I think they like Ingram Ingram has a higher ceiling. So I go to the pelicans, I say, you can have my number four pick, you can have Brandon Ingram. And I would negotiate hard to get them another player and I can keep Lonzo. So I'll give you a four and a Brandon Ingram and play hardball, and who else can I mean again? Rich Paul and Anthony Davis now have the power in. That's what negotiations in my lifetime of all has been about, where's the power does my company need me. Do they not need me? What's the urgency? What's the economy like the, you know, it's pelicans have Zay on. They have they want to get one of those other picks. They got drew holiday, they'd like to add an element to it. But I don't think the nets have the draft picks. They have the all star but not the potential all star the draft picks. The Lakers have the draft picks and potential all-stars but not the star that don't have anything. I mean the next half draft picks. It seems to me if I'm David Griffin. You gotta give me more than just draft picks. You gotta give me players. I'm not gonna have Zion plan with eighteen year old you gotta give me something there. So I think the Lakers are very, very interesting situation. There are reports now that. Anthony Davis only wants the Knicks or the Lakers and there are other reports the Knicks if they want to get it done forty eight hours. So if the next don't get what they want forty eight hours. They move off to other stuff, but remember the finals could end in a couple of days, the teams want to get the done deal done a couple of days and the draft is next. What thursday? So a lot of people wanna get stuff wrapped up the league wants to get stuff wrapped up players wanna get agents want to get it wrapped up before the draft. There's going to be a good week. Good next four or five days. Be sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern, nine AM Pacific on Fox Sports radio f s one and the iheartradio app..

"You know, you I I heard what it was saying I tend to agree with him in the sense of you gotta wait and hold on all your weapons. You don't wanna be one Lonzo ball away from actually having good AD? We don't know if Boston's gonna include Tatum in the package summertime, they say, whatever they want. Now, we don't know what it's going to be until July. So, you know, I think you hold onto that stuff. Because you never know what happens, you know, if what if the Celtics go to the finals and Tatum as your finals MVP, they're not going to include Tatum, and they're not gonna have any right? That was a means point. Yeah. The other day, they're not gonna have any interest in in at that point, you know, or interest in putting Tatum into the package. So you know, you that point you you're going to have maybe the best package. You know, if the Knicks don't get the number one pick, you know, there's still a lot that can happen. I'm not sure necessarily you really need to go. Make a trait now. Just hold on your guys. Okay. That that's all fair and logical. But I mean, you understand that LeBron and he is not fair and Jimmy would not get any. Nobody right. How do you deal with that? If you're magic. And rob man, I think that's what you lean on that contract knowing that he's not gonna opt out and leaves which you're gonna do right gangster. Like, a kind of communicate. You're doing nicer, but but essentially you're going to say that we can eliminate ourselves from a sweepstake before we're eliminated. Right. You gotta be in it to win it. And you can't say I'm out and and then for a lesser for peace because LeBron Anthony Davis is the makings of. Okay. This is gonna be could be the next dynasty. Lebron Bradley Beal. I don't believe anybody's in it for good team. Right. And also, the the other argument you can make as you say if LeBron hadn't missed seventeen games this team will be in the playoffs right ruby point earlier. Right. He's kind of unfair to really judge them in blame them for some of the stuff that went down. But let me ask you this. We Tatum are they gonna day. It really does feel like Tatum's fulcrum of pretty much everything which is crazy. Right. That's happening in the NBA right now. What if it's not paying them can Boston put together a package that's still better than what the Lakers could offer down the road. I think then it comes down to what you've Allieu the New Orleans pelicans. I mean, you know, we kind of know what Jalen Brown is. You know, he solid player. He's stuggled a bit this year. But he's coming on strong now. So it's really a question of what do you valued, you know, Celtics still going to have a ton of draft picks. They can throw at them. You know, there's a lot of different things. You know? So it's it's probably comparible. It's probably not as as wide a gap as it would be if they had put Tatum in the package, then you can kind of say like well it didn't put in the package. So we took the Lakers deal. And nobody's going to really be upset. I on the other side. I wanna kinda get into Munis point that look no one expected LeBron to miss seventeen games. Right. And they were playing well, they were the four seat at one point. What are some of the things if they don't get Anthony Davis that they can get back to to succeed? We'll ask kind of everyone here will get into that little bit. I mean hanging out menas hanging out Modell hanging out Donald show. ESPN LA..

"In Anthony Davis. I think. Gives you a better shot because every time you roll ball out there. You have the best who players on the court. Yeah. But but they will be able to fill out having really good team going into next year. And don't forget man when LeBron I got to L A, and this was only like seven months ago, six seven months on the brunt. I got there. He was very specific about he doesn't expect to win right now right away. So if we go just just as first year in L A without them being a championship caliber team. And then we go into this all season, and they already have Anthony Davis next. Lebron the probably had a schedule. What's better team the current Lakers roster or LeBron Anthony Davis and Mike Ryan me za`z starting five? The corden roster. That's such a bad starting five you just listed me. I got some length. I can get out there and defend I know starting five Chris Cody can knock if you get to the line. You'll knock down fifty percent. You got billion ROY coming off the bench such a bad bench. Are you excited about Brian floors because I'm indifferent? When it comes to the the Miami Dolphins. But you can't ask for better performance from a unit that he's in charge of then what we just saw in the Super Bowl. So I think anybody that was kind of lukewarm on Brian Florez who's in charge of the defense for the patriots for those who don't know is now your head coach of the Miami Dolphins. How can you not have talked yourself into getting super excited for this guy? After watching the performance his defense put actually over the last two games because at first half against Kansas City that defense was tremendous really angle back to the charger game to you could you could throw that in there as well. I mean, incredibly impressive performances. His unit's. Yup. But you know, you got that thing called being a Miami dolphin and it works against you. And now he is a Miami dolphin. And until it winds up until it happens. I'm I'm showing mode man with the dolphins. I don't care what I don't care Belcher came out here and said, actually, I haven't touched the defense in in years. Like, this is literally all Brian Flora's. It wouldn't matter to me like come out here and do it man, not a single one of these Belcher coaches vet any type of success. I mean, literally, none of them. None of them have any type of success. So I wind up being wrong on it's a hope. Bryant florins black Brian floors ends up being the guy who breaks this string. But right now, like the facts are on my side on that one. None of these guys from that Belcher coaching tree amount to anything. All right says you gotta go. So thank you for sale by I just wanted. I just wanted to hold them accountable for what he was saying about that run that the heat were supposed to go on. And now we're three games under five hundred and we're still gonna make the playoffs in this crap conference..

"Yeah. Yeah. I I don't know that I don't know what to expect. Listen Cooper Cup got hurt early in the year. If Todd Gurley is a non factor in the Super Bowl. I there's no way the Rams can win you if they had Cooper Cup healthy and girly I knew going and he's gonna get one hundred fifteen yards. I take the Rams today. I don't think the Rams have been the same since Cooper coupla in if Todd Gurley miliver if he's on a stationary bike in this game. That's what worries me we're gonna have a band Super Bowl. I it's a it's a huge factor for me as I don't know what to expect don't have any idea Fort Lauderdale joy with. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by heard lie. Does there? There has been a lot of NBA talk about a bunch of stuff going on Kyrie irvings moving and Anthony Davis is moving LeBron by the way, it's coming back to play against the clippers here. I think it's tomorrow night yesterday. Add Chris Haines on who broke the Kyrie Irving is interested in getting in. Potentially going to Los Angeles. Chris did say something during the show that I totally disagreed with. We didn't have we had certain time restraints in regards to LeBron Anthony Davis and here it is. Heard admits and Kevin love and Chris boss before those guys are not on eighties level column. I will say that. And a d is twenty-five if Anthony Davis came over to the Lakers, if they found a way to make it happen. Lebron will pass the keys to Anthony Davis, blah, bra will play second fiddle to anti Davis. I do not believe that. And here's why ninety five percent of players in this league play. They just play nothing wrong with that about five percent lead. Michael Jordan led bird lead. Magic lead. Magic by the way. The Lakers had a lot of good players had Kareem wasn't a leader. Magic lead and played. Lebron plays and leads the Klay Thompson story. Lakers, the kyri Irving Lakers AD to the Lakers, that's all engineered by LeBron. Clutch sports. That's all engineered by LeBron. Lebron done just play. He is a leader in this league in the league. Had a handful of that Jerry West he was leading. They had Bill Russell. There's not been a ton of great NBA leaders. There's been a million great NBA players. Magic johnson. Arguably the greatest leader the league's ever had the league was in the toilet. He and Larry Bird saved it. But I do not believe for a second because LeBron's been out for thirty five days. He's given up the baton never forget this. Lebron has played fifty five thousand minutes that is eighth all time to he's going to lead the NBA in minutes. He didn't have time to waste. He's coming off an injury. He wants this AD thing to happen fast. So he can get twenty five or thirty games in with Anthony Davis..

"Settled down number one. Anthony Davis is telling you what many stars in the NBA have increasingly told you. I'd rather win games and make the most money, isn't that? Awesome. Isn't that what we hope all our sports stars or about that they want to win that it's not just about stacking money on top of money on top of money. Kevin durant? Lebron Anthony Davis. These guys want to win games. It's not about buying another house another resort another boat or another car then wanna to win games. I want my athletes to one to win games more than stack poker chips. So good for Anthony Davis. That's number one. Number two is don't blame a great player. If he wants out of a franchise that shouldn't exist to begin with. Okay. This is this franchise. The pelicans the NBA owned it for a while the Benson family owned the saints. They bailed the league out and bought it. But do they really care about it? Let's be honest. They made the NFL general manager the NBA general manager, nobody else does it that way. They've got terrible attendance. The worst television deal in the NBA, and you're going to blame. Because this guy wants out of that franchise. If you're a great employees in America, and you don't think your companies up to your standards, I've left places you've left laces an NBA superstar can't leave places in an NBA superstars got about ten years. I can broadcast for forty and number three don't act shocked. This is the worst kept secret in the league. Why do you think we created the Libro meter back in September because back in September? Anthony Davis signed with clutch sports. The deal was done that day. Don't freak out. Here's the other thing is that. I'm reading Brad Turner is a guy that covers the Lakers for the L A times. And he said in order to get this done in order to get it done. The starting point for the Lakers is trade. Lonzo ball Kyle. Kuzma, their best big man zubec- and a number one pick. Well, I got news for you. And Davis LeBron James, and according to that tweet Brandon Ingram aren't winning a title armed better than Boston? They're not better than Golden State. Sounds top heavy to me. I'm not saying they wouldn't be better. I'm not saying they couldn't make the Western Conference finals, they are not beating Golden State due to franchise and trade restrictions in the NBA. The Celtics can't trade for Anthony Davis until the season is over and the Lakers know that. So my opinion on what the Lakers will do. They wanna get this puppy done. Fast. There were three steps to this. Anthony Davis had the first sign with LeBron's group. Clutch sports, Rich, Paul check, Anthony Davis, then had to announce this is hard because your fans now will hate you had to announce I want out and the third step is for this to work to get Anthony Davis to the Lakers is let's get it done in the next couple of months because by June. The Celtics can make this deal, and it got way better pieces more picks and better assets. And the Lakers do not wanna go toe to toe with the Celtics on this deal. So my point is the Lakers will probably give up more than they ideally want to. So this will be a very top heavy Laker team that will be excellent that will contend to get to the Western Conference finals, but will. Not be in my opinion, close to beating a Golden State. Lebron now fifteenth year first major injury, Anthony Davis, not a premier three point shooter. Those guys are all over a Golden State. We tend to freak out with these big moves. But in review he's moving because he wants to win more than he cares about money. I love that. Nobody should be beholden to a bad NBA franchise that shouldn't exist and number three. This isn't shocking. This thing happened in September. It was the worst kept secret in the NBA. All right. We're going to sell the Super Bowl. I saw this this morning. It's amazing.

"Here's the thing. It's got a lower upside just because you know, LeBron Anthony Davis and. And durant. Right. I like that. That's again, the upside of that is insane. But it's also more complicated. And there is something to be said for simplicity a Steve Kerr, actually when the wars were just in town was talking about how one of the reasons that the warriors work so well together with all that star power. Is there isn't a lot of redundancy like pure everybody gets what he said was everybody gets to excel at something. Everybody's got their own thing that they're good. And when you look at the warriors on paper, it's actually very easy to understand how they make all this workout. If you if you remove ego if you were move a motion things like that. And just look at skill set. It's easy to figure out why it works, and that's rare. And if you put like a combination of LeBron with Middleton on the wing who's never going to expect to be the the first guy at the table and vich in the middle. Great passer. Great pick and roll guy can spread the floor four LeBron that a win. You a lot of games. And then in theory, you've got. Somebody like Ingram or coups more. Lonzo whoever is still let the candidates plan. Right. But I'm just saying that's a good team. And then got all of a sudden like similar the way Lamar Odom when Lamar was supposed to be the second option, you know, hopefully, a twenty point nights score next to Kobe. He just never fit that Ryan resisted it, and it wasn't who he is. But once you made Lamar your third or sometimes even fourth option on a team Lamar became a better player. He became a war -ffective player because he became who. He was as opposed to being miscast. It makes a difference that you said that about Ingram for sure. And like what what you need Lonzo. It'd be all that stuff Lindsay third coming up in about about five six minutes. We talked about the line before patriots by things patriots, minus two and a half. Why do you think that their favor because this is one of the things I think is fascinating about the patriots is here. Like, actually they did kind of get written off. Like, I remember, you know, you get back. And like week ten week eleven they'd lost three or five. Gronk looked awful like totally. So can somebody who had Tom Brady on his fan? And you knew that dude. Look you washed like the gronk particularly look completely broken. Yeah. And so like by patriots standards. They kind of were like, yeah. Guys. This is this is the end of the dynasty. And obviously they're in the Super Bowl. It's the same. If the Spurs you'd until it happens. Just don't. So you just answer your question in terms of why they're favored there's an inevitability factor that feels like associates degrees because you look at it like, you know, defensively they're not certainly in the playoffs. They're not. They haven't been way better than the than the Rams Rams play too. Good game. Good defensive if the patriots had not one that coin toss in overtime. And the chiefs got the ball first chiefs because he's a super absolutely the the patriots defense in that second half against the chiefs was terrible. They gave up thirty one points. That's back in the second half. I'm not a football gist. But I know that's bad. And you look at you. It's it's it's Brady and Belle. Check. Like, there's Rams have better skilled guys..
