"Because the nuggets brought the series back within reach against Lebron and the Lakers by winning game three last night down only to one now Jim Murray after the game said quote we feel that. We should be up to one right now to be honest. So we're just going to move on to game four Shannon, how concerned the Lakers be about the nuggets deliver should be concerned, but they shouldn't be worried the nets get good team. See we gotta get past this notion because the Lakers aren't playing the clippers they got a cake walk. The nuggets are harder than the clippers for the simple fact. Zoo boss is not even close to yoke. And the thing is is that they're two guys. If you I understand on paper people might look at why the finals MVP of a defensive player of the year but if you look at the playoff resumes. Paul Georgia's come up small and Murray is getting better and better and better, and they had an opportunity to down three three one. So the nuggets have having done this get no other team had done it twice in saint in the same playoffs, they've done it. They've done it. So they feel comfortable playing from behind and they in now they've got a victory light. Okay. We beat them. So that means we can't beat. That means they can be beaten again in. We'd beat them once twice that means we can beat them three tab you beat somebody three times that means you'll be before time. So they're they're going to gain confidence at this series goals on if they can get another victory now they got gotten this first one and like look and I'm sure they're looking at them like look we don't turn over here we we should. We should. Yolk. You and Murray about out of the game in the fourth quarter, because this game should have been a thirty point game and you guys should have been resting up for game four. So I'm sure that's what Mike load is telling team. They are a good team, the Lakers Mesa adjustments. They jumped into zone they started taking the ball away the the clippers were not. Prepared, to see zone and they turned the ball over boom boom boom boom like straight possessions and the legs got a quick three guys layup the Braga. Dumped next know Malone has to call a timeout because they're back in the ball game and so for me, the Lakers should be concerned because once you get to this point like I said in a series. It's not like football most. Football anything CAN HAPPEN ON A playoff game skip a field goal here deflation there, and it's always the season's over. The giants could beat. The Patriots in the eighteen I don't believe they be tides, but they didn't have to just got to be the ones we. Do I believe the negative can beat this team four times I do not but they do and that's all it doesn't matter what I think Lebron and eighty. We'll have to send a message on. Thursday. 'cause it. It'd be too to you creating a Mazda you don't want you didn't you didn't need to create. For me, this head or heart. My heart says, the nuggets are going to give you all you want my head keeps telling me just stop it. This will be over quickly that Lebron company will take care of business. In game four in game five and it will be over in five I. Still say the Lakers are considerably better just because they're two superstars. Both better than the to emerging superstars for the nuggets. But I will give you this on concern level. If. Mary. is coming right before your very eyes that guy if he's becoming a true superstar, the equal now of Lebron James at age thirty, five into your seventeen if Jamal Murray is equal to him if he can create the same impact, the same electricity that Lebron can in a turning point game four, two, two, three, one. then. You're in trouble because. That's what his coaches saying. He's become a superstar and look at the clutch numbers. Do you realize that Jamal has now hit? Eight clutch time three pointers the last five minutes game within five. Eight. So far in the playoffs in, that's the second most in the postseason since step in two, thousand, sixteen. So something's happening. And something's happening with this team because. In those situations Denver. Is Well, let's start reverse I. Your Lakers are the third worst team in clutch situations in the playoffs. So they're they're just not good closing right? If it gets tight and close for for whatever reason they get slow they get stalled they can't go shooting team. In their way that is true. So if you get them in a shooting contest. s they are going to struggle creek meanwhile. The nuggets have scored. The most clutch time points in the whole place where you can see it because you keep you face elimination game you're. New comedown you come back twice or three one so. That you wish you'd have been home. Okay. During good. A great include situation you got great and clutch versus shaky. Okay. So if Denver, that's how they feel if we just keep a call. Got It. How they with Clippers skip, they felt that they could just get to the fourth quarter and they were in striking distance. They feel date with their shotmaker with big zoo without zoo with Yolk, glaze get because he people don't realize how good passer he is. So He's GonNa buy guys cutting to the basket. He's GonNa, find guys with wide open threes and Jim..

"And Good morning in his time to get up with Tampa. Tom. I'm the field for the first time. But wait till, you hear what one division rival has to say about the arrival of legend plus Aaron Rodgers speaks, and let's just say this isn't going to hand. Well, you need to hear it and you will coming up and then Lebron and the. The Lakers meet a good night after a sluggish start in the bubble. Did they get it? We'll show you as we get up with you starting right now. Good morning from Bristol. Mike Greenberg with you for the next two hours and change what you are seeing here are pictures. No one has ever seen before. These are from this morning. That is Tom. Brady on the practice field in Tampa for the very first time, we'll take you there live a little later in the program tons of football to get to. After we bring you last night game of the night. The Lakers off to a slow start in the bubble. They needed a bounceback night against the Utah, Jazz. Let's see if they get it. It Lebron Company ready to go and pick it up with an aggressive anthony. Davis. Late, in the first quarter, this is contagious called pope. No Anthony. Davis is there and he slams at home. Davis Thirteen points IN THE FIRST QUARTER SECOND QUARTER UTAH. This was a show by Spider Mitchell working that screen one of four threes he would make on the night. and Mr, outside, he's Mr inside as well. Watch him taking its strong to the twenty. One of his thirty three coming in the first half jazz down to at halftime. Early Third Jazz have taken the lead Lakers down by six. They need something from Lebron and they're GONNA get Lebron. We have liftoff high percentage shot. Lakers would shoot fifty percent from the floor on the night there within four under a minute left in the quarter Lakers up by. Anthony Davis has ranged. He made four threes Lakers close the third. To run fourth, quarter Lebron. On, the wing. Talk about range. Twenty two points nine assists eight rebounds for Lebron James Under five to play. Lakers now up ten, and they're adding to it Lebron nine sixteen from the floor, and in case you're wondering if he is aware of where the camera is take a look. Oh. Yeah. That's Lebron right in your living room. Ready to go less than a minute. Lakers, are up by six looking to put it away. Anthony Davis forty. Two points, twelve rebounds for a D. that's the performance. They need a Lakers with the win one, sixteen one. Long. Shot Great. Strong Retain that we beat and. Status is. You know we're not going so that when we go. and. So it was Davis. Doing most of the damage last night, his twenty, nine, th career forty point, ten, rebound game opponents are in trouble if he and Lebron, get rolling the two of to score over sixty points, twelve times this year and the Lakers have won all twelve and as we reach the top of the hour, it's nine o'clock in the morning, east. We welcome those of you just joining us. I'm Mike Greenberg this up. We just showed you the Lakers and a huge performance from Anthony Davis over the Utah Jazz last night. Sean. Farnum. Farnum and Jackie. Mac Up with us this morning to talk about it, and Jackie, I want to start with you because I did a bunch of radio interviews yesterday, and so many people when asking about the Lakers were asking me, do you believe Anthony Davis is prepared to carry this team where it needs to go. Everyone has confidence that Lebron will do what it takes. But Davis feels like the X. factor that was obviously a huge performance last night. How much confidence do you have an Anthony Davis being able to carry Lebron over the finish line. Greenie, if he plays like he did last night I, don't think there's any question that he's up to the task. I thought what? So interesting about the game last night was Lebron really held back. He knew it was important to get Anthony Davis involved. Early, as you know, you only took seven shots in that loss to Toronto. But if I'm Frank Vogel, the Stat I'm focusing on Greenie is fifteenth free throws. That's how many free throws Anthony Davis shot in this game, he's averaging a little over thirteen and a half free throws in this restart. That's hard to ask, and that's great news for the. The LAKER, because he's shooting it at ninety percent. If you can get your big man to the line with that kind of accuracy and frequency I, like your chances in a postseason. When things slowdown farm, you make your home there in L. Laser. You're hearing this conversation all the time when I was on with our friend George. Sodano. Yesterday. He brought up a bunch of numbers about Davis, not coming big and fourth quarters. Now, one night one night last night. But how will legitimate of a concern to you think that is as we start staring down a playoff that begin in less than two weeks. I'm not concerned at all about, Anthony. Davis and what he will not be able to do in the postseason if you look at his career averages in the postseason. Yes. If if they small sample size, but he averages over thirty points per game when he played in the postseason for New Orleans, he's not going to be averaged thirty points. He cancer for the Los Angeles. Lakers, I think the biggest keys what? What you're talking about the aggressiveness and we forget that last night within those forty two points. He got a majority of those points against the two time NBA defensive player of the year in. Rudy. Gobert. And it's a bad match up for bear. But what I loved was the movement without the ball for Anthony Davis whether it was spacing the floor out or whether it was cutting and move towards the basket. Basket. There's one play in particular in the third quarter where Lebron got the rebound, and after he had closed out to the nearside shot, and he was out of balance and sprint head and found a way to score and transition the Lakers when they play with pace, that's important, and when Anthony Davis is a central part of that, that's even a larger portion of his twenty. Six Best Games. He's had this. This season, they've won twenty two of those contests and Jackie Mac. As we sort of watch, these teams play their way into where they WANNA to be two weeks from now, it's been an uneven start for the Lakers. They barely beat decimated clipper team. They got run off the floor by Toronto, and then last night. How would you assess where they are right now in a season where it's championship or bust?.

Lebron scored two in the fourth quarter and ad got shut out in the fourth quarter and Co. I took over game number two on Christmas Day. Groin injury you read. The right did not read. I haven't heard you saw. I gotta be honest I agree. I didn't see it's a recently on James Up. Seven points at their home game was six and a half minutes to go in. Could not hold the lead spattered up because Leonard scored nine points down the stretch to take that game over so it still two games to one clippers and I will forever remember yesterday's game at Staples playoff atmosphere as an aberration as a throw it out game as the Avery Bradley Memorial Game I will forever remember. Neither of you guys said what word about a guy who made his season high six threes on his season. I twelve attempts. That is the difference in the game. The browns had a third quarter. I mean four and speaking of the thought I was going to talk about the third quarter because he made four in the third quarter. What was the pivotal quarter of the game? What happened to the Clippers at halftime? I don't know they left the building. They did not show up for the third quarter everybody was completely out of it and the Lakers seize control in the third quarter. They won it by eight to take a four point lead to the fourth quarter and you can look at Mike. Tomlin tweeted this game is over because the Lakers are forty two and when they have a lead going to the fourth quarter so while Avery Bradley was hitting four threes and the third was the king doing in the third quarter mostly watching gifty played five minutes of the Third Quarter. And Guess How many points he scored in the pivotal turnaround. Third Quarter guests. How many the man who will himself on this game? He didn't take a shot in the third quarter. He scored zero in the third quarter. Zero for zero was the king and the Lakers took control mostly while he was sitting on the bench watching way to go Chris. Way To go Shannon I give it to you. He was at Shaw Virtuoso. I have been raining. Lebron James with you and other players to yeah. This is the first time I've ever heard you read and rave about third quarter. I woke up out not.

"Get ready for the Denver Nuggets. Tonight. Lebron company finally got their first win of the season looking to make it to in a row against a hot nuggets team. They are for no. And they're for real show. Even though the Lakers have seen them in the preseason. It'll be interesting to see how they match. Up in the regular season. I kind of liked the Lakers tonight as I mentioned in the last segment two and a half point dogs in this one. The dodgers are dogs, certainly as they come home down. Oh to to the Red Sox and for more on that we're joined by this guy. So big time he's working for both companies ESPN and Fox Sports is Alex Rodriguez with this year on the Sadan show at ESPN LA, Alex what's up, man? George. How're you doing my friend? I'm good, brother. Thank you so much taking the time. Appreciate it. So let's start here. These two managers, you know, this as well as anybody when Tober rolls around everyone's focusing on the managers. What would you say is the biggest difference between the two guys the way the two guys are handling their teams right now, I'm a huge fan of both doc, Robert and Alex Cora know them. Both very well. I think they're in different systems. Look, I think while they both lean heavily favor metric and all of data. I think Dave Dombrowski being an old school guy. Give for on me to our core. So in other words, he doesn't have handcuff. He can go out and literally be like a poker player and his eyes and have full freedom to make any move. He wants. I huge competitive advantage and has been the different. So foreign the theory. I think Dave Roberts is under has a very tight handcuffed. I think he can't really look up and watch the game. I don't think he can look up and watch the domination of Jose buyers and goes down would look I said in the pre and post game grip did baseball does not working Tober. Why does that Alex? What do you think? The biggest issue is there after the success that they had in the regular season. What's the biggest difference? The biggest difference is. I if we're we're watching. I if you and I are having breakfast, and we're scripting out. Okay. Ryan's gonna pitch five innings and George gonna come in the second. And then Pepys come in and close. But all of a sudden Ryan is picking a no hitter six why am I gonna take Ryan out? Even though we scripted it at ten o'clock in the morning. I have to be able like Magic Johnson look at the entire floor and say, hey, I'm gonna make a fluid decision. Ryan you continue you will stop. And to you tell me they can't go anymore. And if I have to sit the Donal, and I say put them all that Soviet. You know, the fact that you have a guy like, you know, posted and all about energy and momentum and confident the most valuable player thus far. These two games have been has been Cody Bellinger, guys like the modern day, Darrell strawberry. But even with more versatility. And I it's me the client that this young man on the. Great player plays both sides of the ball. And he's playing an all time high. Now, you've neutered him you've put them in a freezer for two games. And if he's a shell of what he was, you know, against Milwaukee Brewers that dodgers fall doesn't that, you know, his fault. Alex Rodriguez with this year on ESPN LA. We're talking dodgers and Red Sox, of course, game three right here. Tomorrow on ESPN, Los Angeles coverage begins at four o'clock. So Alex, you mentioned Cody Bellinger, the guy to me, that's more perplexing. And I haven't had a huge issue with what Dave is done because look whether you buy into it or not it's their process, right? They're gonna stick to their process because it got into game seven the World Series last year. And they feel like that's the way that they're they're best suited to play baseball fine. You know, you can't argue with people in the in when they're entrenched like that the one thing I would particularly nit-pick about is max Muncie because max. Muncie. Look he's been a huge surprise this year. I get it. But this is a guy that he he hasn't struggled very much against let these actually been pretty good. So I understand wanting to go with the all right handed lineup in those situations..

"Thank Chris. I resume saying they're going to win somewhere between what the fifty three and fifty five. I wanted to go fifty three. You skip. Barth me does not have the courage. Hey. The difference with. Before, but after watching the play in watching the shoe. No way. I would fifty one, but I'm going to third seed. You got him seven which disrespectful. I have LeBron's Hollywood Lakers winning forty seven games and finishing seventh in a loaded west, especially loaded at the bottom. And I'm gonna say this one more time. It is mind boggling to me how the Portland Trail Blazers finished third in the west last year and now are picked by most people to finish out playoffs. But tenth eleventh from third, plummeting, and they law Shabazz Napier, and they added Seth curry, not Steph curry, but Seth curry. Okay. He's not bad. And this happened and I gotta think Portland tonight is like watch this man. I think it home on Thursday night, national TV. There are three point favorite. I think they're going to do a number on LeBron company's losses. Last five there in LeBron's debuts and Miami, and in his return to Cleveland, he had eight turnovers and both those games. They lost it Boston. They lost at home to the Knicks when he went back to Cleveland the second time. So I just I don't like this matchup tonight for this young and old team LeBron goes, show you remember. Okay. Okay. I know he's gonna show me because I am with Chris on this. He will win the MVP and he will lead this league in scoring and I will not be surprised if he gets. I do thirty two again. That's what I think you'll ever. Shot that's going to take, what did I tell yesterday? He's gonna, have the greenest lights this side of Christmas, it's going to be all Christmas lights all year long. Maurienne green one. Seriously because the pieces don't fit to me. They have four point guards in the best point guard on the team. Is that guy? He's still the best. There's no, he's the best passer in basketball. I mean, he threw some passes in the preseason shanty Schroeder, Schroeder right? right. He's like, he's the best. He needs the ball. I get what you're saying. I know the your heart says, Owen this team. I need to post up more whatever you in play off the ball. I get that. But when push comes to shove, it's just going to have the basketball. 'cause he's the only guy that can have the ball on the Lakers roster that you must get the ball out of his hand. They're not trying to get the ball out of Rondo and they're not trying to get the ball out of Lonzo van. They're trying to get the ball out of LeBron hand, and now he can kick. But what's he going to kick it to? That's not cover? That's not JR. That's not a Mike told you the hardest coaching job. I've ever seen going into a season as what Luke Walton faces because I don't know how the pieces fit and he's gonna have to mix and match and find some way to finish games and when it's time to finish games, I know what coach James is going to tell him. He's going to say, I want Lance in there. I want Beasley in there. I want. I want the guys who've been there and done this. I went javale all. Want the vets in they're going to have to run to go. Yeah. And you know what I've already told him. I was more bullish through the preseason. You're this is going to be the most fun team to watch in basketball because they're going to push like crazy now, will they play much defense? I'm not sure. I agree. Brandon can play it if he wants to Josh heart compla- defense. If he locks in one soon by the way, LeBron's going to love Josh heart. He'll be there, glued guy, he'll play a lot. Put it like this. You say they got young guys, you say they got kids and they got cast on will hairs. What LeBron Chicago loop won't as you call them guy. Because if you can put all these pieces together and big at work because you know macgyver be stranded somewhere..

"He's been led the league in the sport time. He's been an all star. He's been all he's been a point guard on a championship caliber team, but I still believe that he wants to play out the ball because he's like, man, this this, a lot of stress off off of me if I can play after ball fifty, one wins. Because the Bron Jayme already know he good for thirteen to twenty and that's down from fifty four. Keep coming down. Thank Chris. I really saying they're going to win somewhere between what the fifty three fifty five. I wanted to go fifty three, you skill. Fourth me is I have the courage. The difference with fifty four. But after watching them play and watching the shoe. No way. I would fifty one, but I'm going to third seed. You got him seven which disrespectful. I have LeBron's Hollywood Lakers winning forty seven games and finishing seventh in a loaded west, especially loaded at the bottom. And I'm gonna say this one more time. It is mind boggling to me how the Portland trailblazers finished third in the west last year and now are picked by most people to finish out of the playoffs. But tenth eleventh from third plummeting, and they lost Shabazz Napier, and they added Seth curry, not Steph curry, but Seth curry issue. Okay, he's not bad. And this happened and I gotta think Portland tonight is like watch this man. I think at home on Thursday night, national TV, there are three point favorite. I think they're gonna do a number on LeBron company's losses. Last five there in LeBron's debuts and Miami, and in his return to Cleveland, he had eight. Turnovers in both those games, they lost it Boston. They lost at home to the Knicks when he went back to Cleveland the second time. So I just I don't like this matchup tonight for this young and old team LeBron goes, show UK remember how, but I know he's gonna show me because I am with Chris on this. He will win the MVP and he will lead this league in scoring, and I will not be surprised if he. Yes, I do thirty two game. That's what I think you'll ever. Shot. That's gonna take. What did I tell yesterday? He's gonna have the greenest lights this side of Christmas, it's going to be all Christmas lights all year long, marine green one seriously because. The pieces don't fit to me. They have four point guards in the best point guard on the team is that guy. He's still the best. There's no, but he's the best passer. I mean, he threw some passes in the preseason. He had shrunk, right? He's like, he's the best. He needs the ball. I get what you're saying. I know your heart says, oh, and this team, I need to post up more whatever you play off the ball. I get that. But when push comes to shove, it's just he born to have the basketball. 'cause he's the only guy that can handle the ball and the Lakers roster that you must get the ball out of his hand. They're not trying to get the ball out of Rondo and they're not trying to get the ball out of Lonzo van. They're trying to get the ball out LeBron hand, and now he can kick. But what's he going to kick it to? That's not Kover. That's not JR. That's not a Mike told you the hardest coaching job. I've ever seen going into a season as what Luke Walton faces because I don't know how the pieces fit and he's gonna have to mix and match and find some way to finish games and when it's time to finish games, I know what coach James is going to tell him. He's going to say, I, I want Lance in there. I want be. Veasley in there on what the guys who'd been there and done this. I went javale oil. Want the vets in, they're going to have to run to. And you know what I've already told him. The reason I was more bullish through the preseason, you're this is going to be the most fun team to watch in basketball because they're going to push like crazy now, will they play much defense? I'm not sure. I agree. Brandon can play it if he wants to Josh heart compla- defense. If he locks in one soon by the way, LeBron's going to love Josh heart.

"lebron company" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Whether it's Brian, went horse or Dave mcmenamin or myself, people that have just been around LeBron and understand what that's like again, no one is sitting here saying that we're tight LeBron or any of that stuff. We just understand how he does business. Okay. And if you look at it, I thought Brian wind horse said it best. It was me and Trudell and here and Brian was like the LeBron I know and maybe he's changed would do whatever it takes to get even a guy like Jimmy Butler if he could this year to be able to compete because he feels that if he gets a guy like that, he can win a championship with a guy like that or at least compete for a championship with a guy like that. Now, again, that is not to say that Brandon Ingram who has clearly taken a step here in the preseason can't fulfill that type of role. But if you're going to try to throw in the warriors, you need multiple of those type of guys to be able to beat them in a series. So that's the type of quote when you read it, I'm going to be as. As I can be. It's LeBron being as honest as he can about your situation. Yes, this is an ideal. I love being a Laker. I love these young guys, but at the end of the day, this is a business and my business about trying to win as many championships as I can. And by the way you as a Laker fan aren't going to hold him to a specific standard of a franchise who's won as many championships anyone, but one in the sport. Okay. You are judged by championships here with this team and even an accelerated age of LeBron doesn't win a championship here in LA. He's probably going to understand that at least this particular tenure is not going to be looked at favorably despite his legacy being completely intact, no matter what happened. So I think all of that stuff matters and that's why that quote to me, just that part of it, I'm going to be as patient as I can be is fascinating to me. You know, George, it was funny around the time that Leonard was traded. I was talking with the Browns camp and I was forced in this. We gotta do it. Now we gotta get Kawai, give up the house, give up everybody because coli in the. LeBron James can win this thing. Now we don't have time to wait. Let's go go, go and the is that I got from LeBron's can't they get kidding pushed to me would be patient. We can't just make the move. We have to make though right move. We can't just do something to do it because the one thing the Lakers have in nobody can question as we've seen this preseason. Now moving forward Ingram has talent kouzmines got talent Lonzo starting to come along. So whether it's the move that gets made or the pieces that are here stay in place and they just get added to as little increment by increment is gonna be the right move. It's gonna be the patient move. This is the last shot from the top of the key. You can't miss it. You can't mess this up in LeBron company drawers, they get it dude, like they understand it. We got one shot at it and magic knows it. And there's a synergy within this organization not just from player from Costa. Personnel that it's almost like a tryout and somethings working. We stay with it if very work and we can't win win it. It's gotta go. The elephant in the room is Anthony Davis, writing. He signed with clutch and the assumption he's gonna end up being a Laker, right? Because he signed with LeBron's agency. So we had this conversation yesterday. I'm curious to get your thoughts on it. If that is and that's going to be looming..

"Day once. They're afraid it must be Rajon Rondo that's it The Lakers facing, the warriors on Christmas day it's almost. Like who's not playing on Christmas day. Looking at the schedule the seventy Sixers visit the Boston Celtics the jazz will host. The Portland trailblazers the Knicks in Milwaukee Bucks will play and Oklahoma City will visit the. Houston Rockets A lot of games there but no surprise is LeBron company and the Golden State Warriors I was also wondering about this with the Golden State Warriors the over under for wins this year for Golden State I believe is sixty to sixty two and a half and I started to read a lot of things that had to do with. How how incentivized are they going to be to. Play well during the, regular season because watching them even during. The postseason there were times when I'm, watching and it just didn't feel like there was any hurry up in them any Nervousness or we to make sure that we're ramped up ready to go and then you know you. Go into that game seven in Houston and of Chris Paul's healthy we may have a different champion. This year but I wonder how, motivated Golden State is going to be during the regular season because in their mind. They probably feel like if we don't have home-court, advantage in the Western Conference, finals so what we're that good and I think this is. Going to be Steve Kerr's big challenged with Golden State this year is to motivate them not game by game it, almost feels like from the first half to the second. Half is the most entertaining about the warriors the second half of the season boogie cousins could tell me how he gets placed in the rotation I think it's part of it but I still want to see this a team that's won back to back titles I feel like this is Kevin Durant last year And just trying to get them to understand you. Have to do it every single night but you also want. To, pay your players this is what the Spurs did they invented this and I think Golden State adopted this so. I think Steve Kerr realizes I can give you a night off, just don't take, night off. When you're playing I can give you a, night off I don't want you going out on the floor and mailing it in and I think that's, really going to be I feel like Golden State will underachieve during the regular season. Doesn't mean they won't be. The team to beat and then when boogie cousins comes back you know you're still going to have to get him into the lineup how. Many minutes do you change your style when he's on the floor I think that's something that's fluid that. Will bear watching with boogie cousins because boogie cousins is there for one year what can I prove. In one year that will help, me get a huge deal and you have this with the Lakers with the older. Guys there they all want to have another contr Tracked after this but everybody's there on a. One year deal one and done and I think that that'll be interesting to watch. Russia Ronda said I'm okay of Lonzo ball wants to start. Or. He's going to start I'm paraphrasing here Knowing, Rajon Rondo is competitive is he is I don't think he wants Lonzo. Ball to start Certainly not in the playoffs but hey all help you all quote unquote tutor you. But I think deep down Rajon Rondo still thinks he can play at a high level land Stevenson still feels like he can. Play at a high level and that's where I think it's tricky with some of. These teams when you bring in these players and Now who's who's the. Star LeBron's the star okay who's the second star here like there's a, pecking order here and Luke Walton. Luke Walton is probably. On the, clock here what how can he prove himself does LeBron Luke Walton to be his head, coach as they move in the future so there's a lot of stuff that will go on during the regular season I? Know it feels like a foregone conclusion with Golden State winning it. And we're already gonna look, ahead, I, don't know win it'll start, but, it will. Start soon where we start looking ahead to players who will be available who would wanna play. With LeBron James with the Lakers because this past season was where's LeBron going to play next season because we thought Golden State. Was going to win the national title But so the Christmas schedule?.
