"Which is what you guys wanted to call the last story and it's what Jimmy Butler is saying to the Lakers last night's Game Lebron Senate I two Butler at the end of the half that of course, awaken the monster. That's Butler. Masterpiece last night I wanNA. To ask you because it trivia question eight forty point triple double in the finals. This is the third ever does anybody know who had the other two? Lebron Brian has one of the broad James Jerry West heard from Pablo I heard it from Israel Gutierrez I didn't hear from Mr Bob Ron Bob I want to start with you. I know what? Game was the seventh game nine hundred. Okay. Well, thank you very much. How did Butler do this pub? He did it by demonstrating something that I did not know what's in him. The scoring I could see I had no idea that he had that level of creativity with the ball in his hands. Those passes worthy of any point guard. You can name he had more to be up in my opinion from the passing that he did from the scoring and by the way he also did it all. I'm so happy I'm so proud of him the first person not seven feet tall. Score. Forty points without the Gimmick. Become my favorite. and Are we talking about an all time game here from Jimmy Butler that puts them in the Pantheon Finals Games? Bob. Yes. ooh absolutely it's an a handful of individual virtuoso performances in history of the final it go to you in Miami next wanted to reflect on Butler here but also there's another question just the load up on guys. How could the Lakers Lebron let this happen Israel next to you. I mean when you talk about all time great performances, Jimmy Butler needing the game of his life with two of his best teammates gone scored or assisted on seventy three of Miami points and had the greatest game of his career. In fact, you mentioned what he did with forty point triple double that sounds like now he has joined a short list of potential. NBA. Logo candidates there with Jerry West Lebron James and he as the only three who have done that. So that elevates him into the stratosphere of a great of a superstar guy who can elevate his team. So now what it does going forward as makes you think do they not that they don't need But can Jimmy Butler call upon this more than one time series? Do the Lakers have to revise things and put a bunch of is on Jimmy Butler and not let him see the floor or see one on one very often. I think it's a game changer for the series because it makes the Lakers have to think at least a little bit especially if you potentially get back in a game in you start there and what the Lakers are thinking again, how could the Lakers and? Lebron let this happen. Lakers had a bad game. They had nine turnovers last game at seven in the first quarter alone just bleeding up Lebron did just leading up to start the game you and sometimes it's the NBA finals and sometimes the other team has more Jimmy Butler had the performance of a lifetime in a d apparently forgot how to play basketball. I'm willing to give the heat that much of a chance if it's going to happen that way and give them one game I didn't panic after they lost the first by a blow out I'm. Not, GONNA. Panic. On the Lakers side for this one either the heat or formidable opponent even injured Jimmy Butler shows you the toughest man in the league. I'm not worried about this at all I. Think they got a game they deserved in this series and we got a great performance. Great. Well, said, I don't think anyone suggesting panic for the Lakers, but just the idea you lose a game where fifty percent of the offense is off the court for Miami. Pablo Tori Plaski wrote today that the Lakers quit is that what you watch? I did not see quitting even though Lebron. James walked off the floor literally before the game was over. That was a bad look. Is Hot taking wisdom is coming from on that but let's look at the Lakers have to do in this next game. Tony Jimmy Butler was attacking one on one. He had a chisel in his hand and went down. To the other basket every single time basically by himself and the reason he got to do that weirdly enough is because Bam was out Bam being out meant they could spread the entire floor. So He'd had coaching adjustment here they said we're gonNA, spread it out let Jimmy attack the middle and let him create a box score and I don't know if Bob Ryan has tattoos with getting that box score with after a Triple Double Bob I. Feel like that is in your future. Spa, back. Gives. Lease. No no tattoos on. But let me say this about my good friend Mr Plaski hey bill they had ten turnovers not seven. In the first quarter they had to double digit deficits they raced and we're leading by one point nine minutes to go how do you say quit Stop Israel To answer your question. Tony Or. Even answering it but I feel like the only way the Lakers could have allowed Jimmy Butler to do this was if they didn't think he could do it because he was the only guy you have to stop on the say what you will about Tyler here on that one big game in the Eastern Conference finals he has stoppable. Okay. Jimmy Butler they looked at it and said, okay go ahead and go one on one we won't W. Halftime, not even in the fourth quarter just go gave wasn't even. The brunch switching off I saw.

"ESPN LA so our friend Arosh Markazi is listening. We appreciate that Arash thank you He says why they never won a title or was named at All Star for the Lakers. Yeah this is pretty easy. You need to do at least one with the Lakers to even be in the conversation so using arrages measurement. Ori was never named an all-star correct but he won multiple titles so that's not a bad way to look academy if you don't have either if you don't have titles or allstars then that then you can take out. That's how you get out. Payton and Malone you ever want entitled the Lakers somebody reacting to that T- Hatrick says Wadis in the hall of fame his contributions to basketball on an international level outweighs accomplishments government in the NBA. He was a pioneer Anna Laker. Those people deserve retired numbers. It is really the ultimate test case by the way fans I put up a poll now that he has entered the hall of fame should the Lakers raised Vlada Devices Jersey to the rafters at Staples Center How do you think it's running because you and I rarely grant anything and we both think it's a no I'll say seventy percent now.

I mean that's just that's what he is ease with you know with Chris Webber and those types in Jay will and all those I mean I remember I remember the games against him more than I remember the Games for the argument right there right so today in in China the US lost to France Eighty nine seventy nine the game was closed but they ended up losing the the United States had one fifty eight consecutive tournament games in Fiba and Olympic competition since we went to NBA players starting with the bronze medal game game at the two thousand six world championships and continuing through every Fiba Americas World Cup and Olympic ever since so that was the last time we lost was in two thousand six. US was bidding to become the first nation when three consecutive world cups after winning three straight Olympic gold old jess in that span big deal or little deal. I cannot tell you what a small deal. This is none of our guys. Were there none of our guys. Are there I don't even know where the Games were on. ESPN plus it was mostly Celtics view of there were four Celtics. Jason Tatum asserts play. I think we can blame it on the Celtics and I don't think this is a significant store in we qualified for the Olympics Tokyo twenty any twenty is is the whole point of USA basketball and I understand that in other countries like I'm sure in France. They're celebrating this victory Kariya's on NBA players on that they're playing Lahmar say or whatever they're let me make an observation or say. I don't think it is the best big man in the NBA. Today Yep is either. It's a two horse race YEP. It's either Anthony Davis or Joel embiid. Correct Act gave one of those two most people would say third on that list is Nikolai Yokich. Not Me third on that list is really go. Bear bear is a two time. I'm defensive player of the year who blocks everything and he's actually excellent offensively and and I would take go bare over Karl Anthony towns. I take him over Yokich. That's the next year go bare. Yokich towns those dudes and today we didn't have any big mcminn to match up with go bear and go bare had twenty one points and sixteen rebounds and blocked shots and Evan -Fornia who plays in the NBA had twenty two frank ntilikina had sixteen. I mean they. They had their best folks. The best players in France showed up up for this thing the best players in the US all turned it down because a mean something for other frustrates doesn't mean it's not necessarily the greatest in the world but most people aren't locked locked into this and following it the way they will be following the Olympics. I just off yours. I don't I don't blame big star players for playing and are you telling me if we would've sent Lebron Brian Anthony Davis Steph and clay for the loss of this lights out no way harden we attend hard and we own that come on Brook mays his and by the way that's what it will look like next summer because ultimately. Do you think a Laker Fan. Do you think Lebron should go. He's already got two gold medals. He's got to give my three. I think it's three I mean. He doesn't need to he would now.

Yeah he's gotTa go gotta go yeah I mean but but Lebron is entering his age thirty seven season that APP that will be entering his age thirty eight season ages no fact Mita Lebron. He's a tank to me. The mileage is really important that you're you're characterizing. Lebron human in years.

CBS The when the coach said if they have to play us God help them yeah and then they lost to Austrailia the they didn't even make it into the medal round so neither Serbia order the US is even going to win a medal.

"Right. Don't have a kevin durant. They don't have a lebron james and steph curry. They've got really good players on the team. They got a couple of all stars. They don't have a superstar on this day. They don't even have great answers. There's to the a list superstars. If you put this team into a playoff series against lebron i mean you're probably trying to use chris middleton. You're probably trying to use p._j. Tucker i'd rather have lebron brian not very controversial statement there <hes> so let me ask you though if we translate this question like if you were on mitchell and you wanted to win a title next year. Would you rather other keep your utah jazz roster. Which sort of been beater built around you you take that roster over the u._s._a. Basketball yeah because i mean not only is it a roster. That's catered data around you and your talents but it also is a roster that we've seen oh stand up to whatever the test of time is that duration of how long have they i've been in the playoffs along the day benefactor in the in the western conference chase whereas this this team they have to go to china and win a medal and get gulp well before we know where they stand. We don't this and i don't think anybody's kidding himself when they think i this is the first time since is jerry colangelo took over. Will you wondered about this u._s. Team can they go to the competition and wingo for sure. No it's an open question is <unk> out there so let me ask you if you were deer and fox. Would you rather have this team or the kings roster. I probably go this team. Maybe this team for him because he's so young and the kings roster so so you yeah and and the kings have been scrapping together benches over the years. They've got a lot of new guys coming in so i think that they're on track to be right around eight or ninety in the western conference so maybe that answers our question for you rather be on this team if you're fox but you would rather be on the or done of mitchell and you know if you kimball off you're going into a situation in boston where that's ready made contender cry for you in eastern conference. That is a little more guaranteed than what you're going to be working with on this right. If we would yeah place these team this group into the eastern western conference implant eighty two game schedule so it sounds like this is a seven six or seven seat seven or eight seed the western conference so they're probably in the first round so this is kind of the the money question is looking ahead to china. I mean some of the the question marks around the squad as can they pull the chemistry stuff together right key and they <hes> you know play cohesive team basketball. Are these pieces going to fit when you're on the short timetable whereas popovich has kind of pointed pointed a press conferences like serbia spain's. These teams have played together for years. They could practically play together blindfolded. Do you worry that this team like how vulnerable do you think this team team is. I mean you've seen them. Play here a couple of times. They just got smoke in the scrimmage. We don't wanna put too much into the scrimmages for sure but it is a little bit <hes> eye-opening when you're seeing this team now run off the court by neighbors but struggling at times. Do you think i mean. How much do you trust this team to be able to yeah. I think you have to based on on the track record. I'll give you a great example in the lead up to the world championships in twenty fourteen in spain to the world cup. That was the steph curry kyrie irving irving anthony davis klay thompson. Don't get harden that group. They don't get it twisted because that team looks amazing on paper. Now now is the time right we're all saying similar things like because that was before steph in clay became what they have become an that derrick rose was was on the team and we more interested talking to derrick rose every day just to see him come in as opposed to knowing that these guys would become..

"L._A. Mason and Ireland show we got fast track coming up at the top of the hour and the one one thing that Greg you you were worried about it has actually already happened. There is an there's an ice cream challen yup that is going on where they're encouraging others to think you'll have to participate but people do and they should all be rounded up and find wind and you know if you keep doing it. I guess maybe there's income appoint to throw the book at people. Apparently millions of people watched her do this on Youtube I and now now who knows how many people are doing on this ice cream challenge. It's ridiculous Hickey lizards the only differences between now and then is like now we have video evidence of people doing things that they've probably been doing for decades. We didn't know about this is your ice cream ale and licking ice cream in the restaurant and doing all these things and messing with your food food for years and you just didn't know because it wasn't on the Internet. Ignorance is bliss my friend. This is something that I don't understand about the millennial generation okay so if you're going to do that like let's say you're going to do it on a dare right like when Arianna undergrounding did it. It doesn't make any sense to me that you would record it and you have to because otherwise people won't know that you did it and it'll be won't be funny. You know you'll have to just tell them van. Then Line's always says to me this is Z.. Generation of if you show me pictures or it didn't happen exactly speaking of which by the way we mentioned earlier that <hes> Lakers head coach Frank Vogel the Lakers lost last night and summer lead to the Knicks but I'm not putting a whole lot. Ah You know you've got every Lego game I the I'm not putting a whole lot of worry in how the Lakers are playing in summer leagues. The Lakers Summer League team looked for about three days like it might be kind of important before the Lakers ended up filling up the roster. It looked like maybe they might need a couple of nobody. Nobody who played for the Lakers Summer League team is going to be on the big team this year and so but at that game <hes> Lakers head coach Frank Vogel. was there and you know we've been saying ever since Kris Haines. Chris has really good reporter. He used to work for us of E._S._P._N.. They went to Yahoo reported a couple of days ago. That Lebron is going to be the point guard for the Lakers this year Frank Vogel says not so fast he was interviewed by Ryan Ruko at Halftime of the game last night in Las Vegas and here's what Frank said about not just Lebron Brian but any of the positions for the Lakers how you envisioned the pieces fitting since there's already reports of the brain will be your point guard right yeah. You know everybody's sort of piece together our style. There's no decision made on our starting lineup <hes> immanent in a plan to start Laurent at the point guard spot <hes> a lot of different laminate lineups and combinations..

"I don't even know why four Michael Jordan made first team all defense at age thirty four LeBron played no defense. I don't live riding the Brian LeBron James plays sixty more playoff games. Let's talk about somebody who's relevant. Let's get back to. What's all guys guys realm? If your gut feeling maybe it's your emotional stone, feeling is nicks for K D. Does that mean kyri joins him the from what all we're here? What is being reported? Cari. The Brooklyn sounds like doing all the grill and okay, so no. Kiri. K D. I don't think the pairing is inevitable like I, I don't think it was. I think it was ever a point where okay Cairo you going there. I'm folly Katie you go in there. I'm follow you. I don't think it was always independent, but those guys are good friends. And I think possibly just for the sake of their relationship that. Katie is going to probably, maybe meet with Brooklyn. Don't know that for sure, but that's what they're trying to figure out right now. And I think that's just based off of, you know, kyri I that relationship is what's going to get, you know, give them to that point. But at the end of the day. It's hard for me believe what we'd be hearing all year rumblings. And. It's hard for me to believe, and it's funny remember this is like days, I because I believe I said the star the Katie Knicks connection here on a short earlier earlier in the year. It's hard for me to believe is going anywhere else, but New York or going to stay sold available house kill so I believe he still has the one in the Hollywood hill. Okay. Oh, he still does have that. Okay. Well, the Malibu one that's going. And that's why, but that's why always that's why brought up Kawai Linders will last quick point about Kevin Durant. This is what I do know about Kevin, he loves to shock the world, go completely against the grain and go completely outside your box in your box, and we He's thought it would like, like us. okay, well, something crazy were when he when he saw with Golden State. It was fourth of July fireworks display. It was like complete shock. Right. Nobody saw that coming. So is it possible? There's some team lay in the weeds out there. We're not thinking I can see that. I can see that. I think whatever is going to happen has been projected happen for four longtime. I don't I don't see it being that. I think. Like I say, I like the Knicks chances. But I'm saying for Golden State all those things that happen. Yep. I'm with you on it's hard to believe to your deal Golden State because rehab year and then play one year to says, okay, now back get two hundred and fifty me, but the problem with that Shannon is like was he thirty right now? He'll be thirty two before we plays again. Yeah, I understand. But it's like at this, at this point like you're already stepping into the, the twilight years of your prime the end of your prime it, can you keep going doing these one and one K K?

"So let me let me run this by you. So our guy Zach Lowe the NBA right on one of his recent podcasts said this about the Lakers situation. This is an agent who told him this read, you the quote, you tell me what you think. Okay, who they hire in the front office as in the Lakers is going to absolutely be crucial to replace magic. Because there are two orbits here. There's the Lakers orbit. And then there's the more interesting one there's the LeBron orbit and I've had. Powerful people in the league, including a powerful agent who represents a lot of key players. Tell me we don't want the person to be from either of those orbits we we don't want the new GM or the president or whatever to even have some sort of connection to the Brian. We needed to be a fresh start my players. Don't wanna have the impression that LeBron is running the team. So you were saying earlier about LeBron doesn't like to be involved in those decisions. So what do you make of that narrative? That's being pushed out there a man's opinion. So me think oh liberal. I'm telling you, LeBron Brian don't wanna know puts of of he, you know, they come to hear the Lakers, you know, the front office or whoever's in front of us coming him at XM that obviously he'll give a pain, but he's not going to say, hey, I want this done I want that's not her Braun operates, and you know, playing times Braun night and went to dinner, and you know, he hates type of stuff, you know, he he just wanna play basketball. But every. Nobody always blamed him. You know, when moves are made is because Braun on certain people get fired is because Brian, and that's not the case. And I think, you know, in my opinion, why not keep it, you know, family ords, you know, Todd Lou won championship with the Lakers. You know, he got a history of Braun. And obviously the Lakers haven't made the playoffs six years. So, you know, despite with anybody have to say the goal is to get the franchise back to where it needs to be. And if that means higher t Lou who coastal Braun Cleveland, whether you know, whoever has negative some sale by the goal is is to come in and get back to the play offs and get the Lakers organization baked to wiz opposed to be yet. Look, I have no problem. And I look I covered him in Miami. You know, and I know Griffin a little bit. And and he he's told me a million times. Like, look, of course, we'd go to him and Tom. Hey, here's what we're thinking. He's the best player on the team. Right. But that's. Generally the way it works. He's like when I was in Phoenix, we do that with Steve Nash to like we. I'm gonna say before I guarantee you before Golden State of quiet thought about signing DeMarcus cousins, they went to dry months, Steph Kadian Klay, right? You know before anybody gets up before, you know, the Moore's twin sign with. Okay, CD's late in the season. I guarantee you they ex in of PG what they felt about it. So it's it's always like, they're never as you. Always you know, every organization one include. They franchise plu. Right. Think that's the right thing to do. Anyway. I mean, they franchise play half the plate with this guy. So if you say, yeah, I think this is good fit. It's good to get their opinion about it. I'm sorry. Everybody could be on the same page for sure for sure Kendrick Perkins with us here on this show on ESPN LA. So when you saw the way they Bill this past Lakers team, you know, magic was out there in rob Pelinka, and they're like we're gonna playmakers around him. We're not going to do what Cleveland did. And I was look I was very critical of it from the jump like people are like, you know. Oh, it's easy to second. Guess I was I guessing. This this ain't gonna work. This is there's a a method to the madness LeBron green. They did the last two years in Cleveland. The first time those four years of Miami..

It's such a good you'd be like Strutton walk into this. Come on, man. How do you not strut to such a great jam? You know, imagine you had like the band playing behind you as you walk down LA live here. Some one of my favorite parts in American gangsters when his girl asked him why his name wasn't on the club. Right. And he said, well when you own something you can put any name on that. That's true great line that is true life. That is true. There's a shell corporation for everything. Call this the Mike and funchess show. We could write you could if you one cool with that I'm fine with that. Hey, Kirk Morrison and Bill will stop by in the last hour. I'll let you about in the current as I told you I already taped the interview with Plaski Gallo heated Bill now cool, though, we're fine. But got he was back and forth with the master is like, the, you know, the young kung FU master versus the the old sense or seafood, you know. That's what it felt like Kareem Bruce Lee, right? Right. Right. Who would be Kareem though, you me. Okay. No, it's not that. Because they were both like same age. Just go at the Joe. Oh man want. No, you gotta don't be so tight young lion.

Just radio, man. We're good. We're just arguing points. So here's the deal and LeBron Brian Windhorst reported today that LeBron is over two hundred eighty pounds right now. And you know, what Mike when you watch him? He looks big even for him and looks a little less agile out there right now it reminded me he looked like that at the beginning of the season two. And then it took him a minute to kind of find his footing that groin injury. That's the one thing that caller Robert in Palisades brought up earlier the I don't think the injuries be healed this season. He's one hundred percent by any stretch any magic. I remember seeing him in that game. He came back from the growing injury. It was kind of hard to watch. Yeah. But he was taking his time. You know, you could tell it took him almost whole quarter. Just to get some type of rhythm back. You know? But remember, I've told this story right that LeBron. You know, there's always all the talk you spend a million million dollars on his body. And I told you when he came to lay he didn't necessarily have the same team intact. That was training him when he was in Miami and Cleveland that now he still uses those guys, but he doesn't use them every day. Like he used to use them in Cleveland and Miami show. It's more of like, a an occasional like when you know, they bring them in and out, you know, fly in fly him out when he feels like he needs it. It's not an everyday thing. Like on track relation, correct? Correct. Not like a salaried employee situation. Right where he had previously. It felt like that was more the relationship previously, by the way, those guys that worked with LeBron. David Alexander donning. I think his name is Danni something I forget the last name of the other guy. That's the navy seal. Donnie that fixed LeBron's back in two thousand fourteen. So that's why like I mean, they. Because remember that first year in Cleveland, LeBron didn't look, right. And and it was a lot of that. Those guys fixed him those guys, by the way. Donnie, Ramon Donnie, Ramon, thank you, those guys are now just starting to work with Chris Paul. And when I did the game in Houston a couple of weeks ago, the raptors rockets game, Chris, and I were talking about those guys after the fact he knows I I know them a little bit like, I don't know..

Michael, is he said, yeah, they were still complaining. They're just. They're not happy with their lot in life. I mean, they're getting up in the middle of the night and they're grumpy when they get up. And then we want a little more surly when we did morning to this. We never. We never went there. So yeah, but it's everybody is talking. And the other thing is the ball movement. Some believe actually there's too much ball movement at times hundred pursue quote and said, I think we were over passing at times. My handle made a point during the game coups MMA. You know, and this is who loves to shoot more than he love shots, let had a wide open three pointer and he threw it to like Casey p who was apparently more wide open than he was, but they'll get that. Oh sure, they will. I answer neck submission game. You can tolerate a little over passing. Yeah. And then at the end of the game, this kid, Isaac Bonga had a chance to to have his first game winning shot and he didn't shoot it right then I would have been a game winning three and he lost track of time. There's one player who I no longer think fits or should be on the roster. On the Laker us on the Lakers roster don't know who that could be not there. Who is it? I will tell you next Mason. Ireland ESPN LA rebound. Vail Mckee l. let's LeBron Brian, the middle, LeBron all the way the bronze still going Brian to the rim, puts it up. James first basket, get staple center Lakers greatest basket of ever seen a staple center. Wow. And still the morning show says we a little more into like turn the enthusiasm up a little bit more. Boy, what is it going to be like? How how big are you going to go when he scores his first real best outta my shoes. Oh, but I mean for real right or no? Well, apparently according to those bozos the real basket has already happened. Oh, yeah, that's right. In San Diego, Michael desk Keyshawn like, hey key. When you cut your first preseason touch shampoo, you consider that your first session Paschi censures. Yeah. Being well, yeah, being key. That is key. That is key, right? So there's one player that looking at the game last night. I thought this guy nice guy. Doesn't belong on this Lakers roster home. Is it events much Evita of zoo butts. Okay. It's engine you say that because I like zoo, and he worked really hard. Tonight's guy we've had him on now. Here's the thing. I think it's possible off to talk to him about it and maybe tech Gunnar Peterson, the Lakers condition guy. It almost looks like to me, zoo lost too much weight that you know that he used to have this like low center of gravity and he couldn't be pushed around. Right. And now like there were a couple of times when Millsap and yoke Chatham on the block and they were able to move him right. And he's, I think he's he was. He was felt, but I don't know how much weight he's last. It looks to me like he's lost about thirty pounds. That's a good way to put it. He was pushed around physically on the floor and when he came up, he wasn't that way. He's actually he's valuable because he's excellent in the post. So when you run into a team that has a center, he's good to putting the geeky and score with either hand, he's got a little assault him that way and you can't Fallon because he makes his free throws. Right. But back to your original point, if he can't defend the other big, I don't know what his role in the league is..

"Kid. Kevin Durant never causes a problem. It turns out, Kevin Durant has opinions. He's angry. Sometimes he's not crazy about the media and some fans, and he has an idea of what he wants to do. We'll good for him. He still not. It doesn't feel to me fully comfortable in his own skin, but he's getting there. It seems to me and I like that. I think more importantly, okay, Kevin Durant is going to be a free agent. I understand that he's this transcendent talent in a way that no one else is other than LeBron. I don't know for how much longer Kevin Durant will be a top five player, and it's not even about age LeBron James better than Kevin Durant. My whole lot, I think AD is the second best player in the world unless Kawai is healthy and then I don't know. And then you have Janas who already is on that level. God forbid, his jumper starts to fall that that puts k. d. five, maybe like right now the fifth best player in the world right now, that means if Ben Simmons get gets a jump. Oh. Air or joylin beads starts moving his feet a little bit more on defense in the playoffs. He might not be in the top five Jalen if he will max, are you sitting here saying Kevin Durant is going to be out of the top five implants? First and foremost, you only need four guys, right? Looking at five. Rushmore four. The other thing is when you start to become that level of great, you gotta start taking winning into account. So for somebody like Janas he does have that level of talent. But at some point he has to lift his basketball team and Ben Simmons ain't even the best player. Guess where all his own team that happens to be Joel Embiid. Kevin Durant has firmly etched himself in my opinion, is the second best because they're in the doing that's not like you. Knows not LeBron Brian is best and here's Katie empty. Forty ninety consistently. He's been MVP's bene- four-time store and champion, and he's proven to me the he could be the best player on the best team so much. So they just want to championships and guess who took. That's player on the best team. He's not the thing that makes that team go and he joined the seventy three win team that's do could have given them Paul George for nothing and they'd have been almost as dominant. You could give them a lot of players not k. d. they still would have won the championship by a lot look. You talk about Janas he has to win, right? K. d. had two other future MVP's and another all star and got destroyed in the finals and even by who? Okay, fine. But even who even when he was crewed up later and they were the best team in basketball during the seventy three win Golden State. Season when LeBron went in to oracle and beat that team. Katie was in the same situation at oracle game seven, not so much. I'm just saying you're, you're, you're correlating his winning because he's on a great team with other talent and giving them credit for their irony show we, he was great before he got the Golden State Warriors. Okay. And the other thing when he had James harden was a six man at that time, put it, they lose to in the finals. LeBron wait in Biden, just Lulu nearly better and more sitting just lose right. So Jaanus without a great supporting cast is losing sometimes to better teams that's his. This is the Lyonnaise he's in the east now says, turn when you talk about the eastern share who's who, who's going to be the Eastern Conference finals. Actually, the east has the only chopped to beat the warriors really close. I have to jump in. This is a delight maximum the best. Thank you very much that we are looking forward to. I take in twenty more even more now in twenty two minutes here on ESPN. I'm sending the two of you.

"Z. right. And you've, you've told me this story offaire amount. Correct me if I'm wrong. I don't know if it's the same story, but the story you told me was about wanting someone at in the business at ESPN particularly to speak at NYU where he goes to school and you had suggested yourself? Well, he he was looking for name right now. It's just like, I'll do it. Yeah, I know. See you hang out and blah, blah, blah. He was like, oh, no, right. I'm not having you come on campus because I'm Elsie Granderson here. Right? And I was like, all right, I got to fly across country. See a little narrow behind. Yeah, I'm good, right. But he's also went through a period in which he wanted to be called by his middle name Isaiah right, and not l z because he was still searching for his own identity and people were automatically assuming as soon as they heard his name that we were related, but are you going to be on television? All right. Are you gonna do all this? So you know, obviously is a much different scale than what LeBron Brian, you're going. Right. But I I as you were saying to start this segment, George every parent, particularly every father who has a son must be cognizant of that sort of dynamic, right? You know, I mean, Donald Trump junior in a, what are you going to be? Right? Yeah, because this is your father, right? And you expect you have a certain expectation based on what the parent does look in also in in our field as Well. I, I was. Very young. But when I was very, very young, Jack buck was the voice of, you know, baseball and football on the radio. And you know what I mean? Like he was as big a broadcaster as there was, and then he did the television game of the week as well on baseball. And Joe buck has followed his footsteps and done a hell of a job right by Joe buck has become as big if not bigger, maybe even his father. But right there are a lot. There was clearly inherent pressure when Joe buck said, I wanted to become a broadcaster talked briefly with Jeremy Schaap. Yeah, about, oh yeah, you know, it's amazing journalist as well. Yeah. So you know, LeBron is very wise and a lot of areas are he continues to impress me with his self awareness and this discussion. It's just a very relatable sort of thing. And it's also part of the reason why George, I feel like he's just going to be good for the city. Yeah, not just good for the Lakers, but good for the city because it's nice to see someone of his stature had to sort of conversations that everyday people can relate to for sure. Yeah, I don't think there's any question that's the case has always been very, for lack of a better term woke. And that's just and I don't mean that from a political perspective from a life perspective, abs- absolutely pretty for a guy who's that famous. He can be very normal and grounded. I feel like he his story gets overshadowed by his performance on the court. So I got a cool story for you about LeBron when I first encountered him in two thousand ten about how normal LeBron tries to live his life and his family tries to live their life. It's about where they decided to move in town when they moved to Miami, and this will explain to you what kind of rationale they have about trying to be as normal as possible. We'll get to that. Plus Paul George speaks on why he didn't meet with the Lakers. We'll talk about that in just a second. So l z just to give you an idea of LeBron right and how normal he is. I. When he when I first encountered him in two thousand ten in Miami, my friend, his wife happened to be the realtor that they were working with. And when she deals high end clients, right people can afford million dollar houses..

Even get no look at Michael Jordan's can't think of any Michael Jordan's, two sons one was pretty good and started Illinois, but wound up university of central Florida. Both played at central Florida and they were just, okay. No, NBA prospect all so into that. But when they didn't even get Michael Jordan's namesake was Marcus and one was Jeffrey middlemen tonight with that. But that's the thing though. Skip, I mean, when you compare to all time. Great. What what would what would be deemed success? 'cause I don't know if we've seen an all time. Great player have fun reached that level, especially in basketball. I mean, you take all the all time list. Just take the top fifty players. Have we ever seen what heavy son to reach this level? Again, I hate to bring this up because LeBron did not like it, but remember lavar brought up what you just stating a fact that history shows you that the sun can never live up to the superstar father food star becomes because if you look. Get Tim Hardaway. He has a son. Pretty good, but when you compare him to an all-time great, you say Larry Bird or Magic Johnson, LeBron James Kobe Bryant or Corinne now you're talking about a whole different. Stratosphere shack shack have Streep that six. Eight, six, nine. We'll see. I've been watching the Hans. He looks pretty good. We will see because when you start getting that rarified air skill, I mean being a professional, if the great accomplishment. But when you talk about of all the guys that play professional basketball and you're the top point, one percent? Yeah, forget the one point. Zero zero one present and then having son to come alone. I don't. Like I said, I don't know. Maybe maybe they're out the top of my head. I can't think of any of the top fifty basketball players that have had his son reach. This level is definitely not top ten magic and Kareem will Russell LeBron Colby. So. With Rick Perry was a great player. A bunch of son's really play. He He might. might. He He might. might. Okay, but nobody great riot brunt was pretty good. And again, yeah, they weren't Rick. So so imagine he had four sons the plan, NBA pretty good, Rick bed with an all time. Great player. They weren't there day. So take take Rick. Barry, multiply it by three LeBron and you're asking LeBron Brian junior, just quick note. I know Rick very well. In his youngest son is canyon who he thought was going to be the best shaped up thirteen as the best of the of the sign and he's he didn't make it. I think he's playing Europe, right?

"And they've got points in transition so the thought is let's get playmakers let's run because the more we run that can hide some of our other deficiencies and we get the transition point and maybe then we can hang with the top teams doing that one of the issues with that is if you're going to run and increase the pace of play because by the way no team was lebron james has ever ranked in the top ten in place in his career right lebron's going to be thirty four rajon rondo thirty to develop mcgee is thirty so are these guys that could keep up that pace you know there's one thing to say okay lebron is going to go more on the low post and finished plays not necessarily start them but if you're talking about a faster pace you have guys at your counting on being a little older so will that hold up or and and a lot of people started saying oh what's gonna happen the lonzo ball and i even heard it thrown out there that he kinda got the knee injury out there to not end up going anywhere else part of this team but a lot of people were thinking wait a minute rajon rondo was there lebron handles the ball what do you need lonzo for supposedly lebron likes lonzo and what he does and if they truly go with this new way they're going to play it's going to be rajon rondo and lonzo ball and our handling the ball and lebron supposedly gonna be down low a little more finishing plays so again i think that sounds good in theory but let's be honest is that a second spectrum theory could be when push comes to shove and when times get tough what do you think is going to happen lebron brian is going to have the ball he's gonna drive to make a play or he's gonna kick it to one of the nonshooters so i think it's in the nonshooters shoot i saw i don't know i when you lay it out there and say this is the plan you say okay that's a plan anyway at least you you do have a plan but now when you put the plan into place it's something that can actually work because let's be honest chris paul is healthy last year we may be talking about the houston rockets out of the nba champs and that golden state because the houston rockets i believe what it'd be cleveland as well in the finals and look at the.
