"What did he bring to the table and how much does he lift the team and for mine the three best players over the regular season in the NBA were Lebron Jaanus and harden and so sure why is excellent at what he does but I don't think him winning a chip on what you said is a it's. A strong team you know that doesn't necessarily make him. You Know Oh, well, automatically the best laundering. I appreciate I appreciate this because I have the Dumb Sports Guy Point of view here, and you have the more nuanced a forward-looking point of view. I appreciate that but I do think people can get carried away there. You're right in the regular season Lebron and harden and Jaanus our five star players and Co is a four point nine, five star player but in a two-month post-season in a league where more than half the teams make the playoffs. So no no such thing as an MVP coming from a non playoff teams never happened at, should it by the way? Then in those much much higher level way more important games the guy who plays better there surely Ah races any minor deficit he has during the regular largely unimportant regular season and Kawai why in the play. Has Been. A Better player in recent years has clearly been better than James Harden clearly been better than if you look at the efficiency on offense and then also at the defense and he and Lebron Mike a toss up in recent years and Kawais, the reigning MVP, why should we not count more much much much higher leverage games especially when that part of the season is so long in the NBA. Yes. So again, if it's on how you evaluate even in the postseason so why first of all, let me say right off the bat when I went to Toronto I was in Vegas I immediately put money on them at sixty to one I was happy may also of radio I I appreciate why? Like I put down until? TORONTO. I didn't I didn't put down the mortgage wife wouldn't let me but I doubt enough for us to have a really good time Last time we went. but you know when it comes to Kawai, I actually called that trade. You know for ESPN article said the Spurs to trade to the Raptors where the raptors tried to get him. So I am very high Hawaii but when it comes to postseason evaluation again I think he's a specialist, he's not somebody that you were put on a a team to you. Know get to the playoffs. He's if you've got a you know both the raptors and the clippers, and even the spurs when were good. They had very well rounded teams that were able to do a lot of offense and defense and Koiwa. So you bring in to finish it. I think that's an excellent skill the have and I think you know I'll give. You know top five I can give him that. But as far as whether if the clippers win that to me does not say that he did more to get them get you if before I. Let you go. I'm way over here way over here arguing with you about this. If if before I let you go if the clippers face the Lakers and COO. Why clearly outplays Lebron and the clippers go on to win the championship and wins. Finals MVP. I'm trying to figure out if because even though I have the dump sports, Guy Point of view and you have the more nuanced point of view here you may have more of kind of religious point of view here and mining were scientific as you have an undisputable hypothesis. I'm saying, is there any evidence that would change your mind with that be evidence Lebron face each other they pick each other up on defense. Team focal point on offense team wins, and then Kawai wins finals. Mvp Is Hawaii then are still no. It depends bring me who argue with more. That's right. You're worshipping at the altar of Lebron James I see well, listen he's giving you a lot of evidence to believe in them..

"You know what I'm saying. That's like that's a huge jump. Okay and look. You can make the same case for Pascal Siachen but I think lucas jump has been bigger. Who Will Win? I don't know who's going to win this award. I mean I would vote. I'm going to stick with Bam but I wouldn't be surprised if Brandon Ingram one branding who has a great chance to do it he has. He's he carried the the thunder until Zion got there so he's got a really good chance. I I'm kind of on board with deluca dodgers. One and I think he's going to be the one that ends up winning it because he's gone from being a good player to a star. He is an absolute star with. I don't know how many triple doubles these had this right. Yeah Yeah you have you have Brandon Ingram at number one most improved a dead and then look at too so we were kind of there. Okay and then lastly for MVP. I mean this isn't a shock. I've already said this a million times. I've got Lebron at one. I think I talked about this with trudell yesterday. I know Damian Lillard also agrees with me. I've got John to and at three. I Have Chris Paul which you and I have discussed Greg on this show before I think what Chris Paul has done is incredible. He's come back to be Chris Paul. Everybody wrote him off and look at what the hell the thunder of done. Just like what I mentioned with Billy Donovan. But who actually think. We'll win it. Even though I have. Lebron Jaanus is GonNa win it. Yes is probably GONNA end up winning it. Because that's just how it's GonNa even. He wanted last year right. So it's not. It's not as much of a traveling award as as some of the other ones are but Lebron I mean look again here comes laker boy but you agree with me. So it's nice. Lebron had what he's done with with all of his triple doubles where he changed. Basically is entire role. He's no longer just a score. He is a facilitator to where he's leading the League in assists at this point and he's played good defense. He's played respectable defense for most of the year when normally he waits until like March. Yeah yeah I know he has. He has played very well. That's why I voted number one right. That's my My list I'll figure out the six man I have to go in the break and figure it out because I know I had more than Harrell. Obviously all right coming up next they do it bigger in Texas but are they doing it smarter than us here in California that and the Forbes world highest paid athletes. Where's Lebron.

"Are is more skillful and better especially to blame when talking about the greatness of ad is. I don't think they are. No I mean you can have different skill sets and that doesn't make. Janas has a way of imposing himself on Games. That ad doesn't always have also just told you he envies part again. He has the ball in his hands. Did you see a D. Against The Philadelphia? Seventy six the other night dominated game on both ends of the floor of what else to do. We're talking about splitting hairs between the first or second or third or fourth best players in the league to you got any talking about Bergman Bergman's got lovely hair. No good for you. Thank you Geraldo Rivera. I just I'm not saying that I that all these people are correct. But I'm telling you how this point when finish up jaanus imposes himself in ways. That are obvious to people in a D doesn't Roy. There's a perception that you can bully. You can push him around. People wonder why does it work when you when you in all these you know team small. Just throw down the post eighty dunk. That's just not I hate when they post them up like so he's not back to the basket he can't he can. Yeah but that's not. His strength is strength is taking that small guy facing him up. Put the ball to floor. You can shoot over. You can do whatever. He's got post moves. You can do both but when Anthony when you when you make. Anthony Davis play like a classic back to the Basket Center. Oh He's impossible to stop down. You can always but box bogs down to the smaller guy or can quick bigger guy. What are you talking about comedy you? You don't watch the Lakers play do you. I I've seen a couple games to watch. The Cup watched a few I. All I'm saying is like I think. Eighty skillset actually. Like is bad for the temptation to constantly. Just dump it down on the post and go from there but it doesn't. It bogs down. He takes the Lakers offense out of its flow if you have. Tim Duncan of the postal. Dunkin's different player than Anthony Davis. I mean also. Tim Duncan by ten years ago twelve years ago insult or things normal so you still sort of boiler postive guy can score so shocking poche also to him because old games different now shack now. He tried to guard shack with a six four to get obliterate. Can't post because the game is different. Now we're not going to give you twenty touches. The game not same same guy comes in the league now. Obviously if you're a team you do it differently but I think this is one of these. It's the same. It's it's not different than the argument between Lebron and a D. L. Lebron Jaanus like Bronx. Who's better WHO's more about? Who's the better player? It's Lebron James? Right it's not even close legacy of the two players in the game. The two best and I know is in. There is in that conversation right about that. Who else will be not compensation Maybe that's it. Maybe that's the four. Maybe that's the Mount Rushmore of the NBA. And that's IT and everybody else. Well I'M NOT GONNA do it on both ends of the floor. There's no question about that. You can argue about. Who's better would have. Both those guys are just dominant forces. Defensively I one of my favorite things that year. Ans- yeah one of my favorite things about this year has been watching. Anthony Davis like a night in night out the the ground. He covers taito layers of each insane. He's a freak us and you remember that play where he contested the three. Did the fly by guy resets and shoots in a D so long and gets back into place so quickly blocks it from behind exactly like stuff like I've never seen that beyond might be the only other big guy his size can do that right so the Braun is put himself right back in that conversation which is like he talks about the MVP. He's not talking about. I WanNa win this trophy because it matters to me that I win and Yoenis. Doesn't it matters to him? Because who's the best player on the planet will usually we say guy won the MVP recognition appreciation for what he's done and what his career has been and it'll be a nice like always say a little bauble if he wins on his. That'll be fifth. Mvp wins at five. It'd be great if he does so. This might listen. This is talking about. This is why he cares.
"lebron jaanus" Discussed on First Things First
"Be fired Friday morning which third straight loss would be exactly that onto the Lakers. No second night of back to back. But they apparently didn't get the memo. The one that reminded you you're tired and you're steph slower in the back end of back toback. La came came out firing from start to finish both sides of the ball. Taken out the Utah Jazz. One twenty-one to ninety six for their tenth straight road win eight deported in twenty-six while abroad twenty nick. How wide is the gap? Now between the Lakers and the rest of the West enormous. The the gap between the Lakers. The rest of the West is enormous. The only team that the gap is not enormous dream. The Lakers am between the Lakers. And then is the Lakers in the box. And you got the two best players in the league. Lebron Jaanus both teams are nineteen and three bowl teams or three games up in their respective conferences. Both teams appear to be on a collision course. Quarter way through the season to meet the NBA finals which would be glorious chance by the way for Janas to not only figuratively but almost literally take the belt from Lebron Iran or for Lebron to hold them off. We don't have to go there quite yet. I that the Lakers went to Denver. Team that going into the game was eighty two at home with wins Jovan Lamey Philly Houston and Boston and led the final three quarters of that game the entirety except for nineteen seconds won that game while it was a close game. The Lakers were in full control. They didn't have very next night. GO TO UTAH. What I consider can't be the toughest backtracked exists in the NBA? At Denver at Utah the altitude. The fans fans of Utah like at Lakers clippers is tougher teams. But there's no travel you're standing in the same hotel you're playing in the same building. They go to Utah a team. That was eight and one at home going into last night with wins over the clippers. The sixers the bucks headwind and they annihilated them. They lead for all of the final three quarters to the point where Lebron Shoe ously celebrating with a few minutes left in the game because his work here was done and while the story through the first quarter of the season has been for the Lakers. Them being the Lakers again having being the best team in the NBA. Lebron leading the League in assists. What is quickly I think going it'd be the story of the second quarter of the season? Is that man you saw right there. Anthony Davis and his dominance on the defensive end to go along with his extraordinary. You play on the offense event. There was a two time defensive player of the year on the court last night in Rudy. Gobert he didn't look anything close to the defensive player of the year this year that it looked like Anthony Davis. Oh yeah absolutely right in for me. It starts on the defensive in. Would you look at these Lakers team. If you watch the game last night I mean you saw the first few offensive possessions. They looked a little bit outta sorts but then picked it up especially on a defensive end in the second half of that first quarter and then they go on at sixteen four run that started with that Kyle. Kuzma buzzer beater. Peter Three pointer at the end of it and ended ultimately being an ultimately in the middle of the second quarter. The biggest thing that I saw last night was one does ability ready to be able to manage the game. He was having him as an additional ball. Handler with Lebron James. Not Having to be the primary ball handler on the court at all times. I think that's it's going to be used for Lebron throughout the regular season but it's also going to lead to a fresh Lebron once we get to the postseason so having him and his playmaking ability being able to operate the the offense get the ball to guys in their spots on the court. I think that's big. I mean he finished was it to rebound shy of a triple double WanNa rebounding his fourteen nine and twelve remain on one rebound shy of a triple double. So if you're getting that kind of production from Rondo thirty two minutes last night twenty five minutes tonight before. I think that's going to lead to a positive. The result of the Lakers not only with the regular season in the standings once we get to the postseason but their ability to actually finish the drill and compete for championship. And by the way. Janna the the Lakers. They're doing this this start with avery. Bradley being injured the last few weeks one of I consider their most important players because of his ability to guard opposing point guards and with Kyle coups was still not really being himself. Nosema finished four of eleven last night and two of those makes were Buzzer beaters. First-quarter into the second quarter. He's still seems seems a little out of sorts. After missing training camp in the beginning of the season with that injury I would say Kouzmin went into the year the fourth most important player Avery Bradley their fifth most important wouldn't player that they've been without either one of them. They very few games were all five of their projected. Best players have been together and they're still nineteen and how impressed have have you been by every guy in this team not name. Lebron at this points go ahead. Aubin really impressed and wanted to know. Saddam made from last night's game is if you have kcpt Kcpt Kunsman Rondo going seven twelve from three point range than opponents. Teams have no shot. They have the ability to consistently knockdown perimeter shots. That's GONNA spaced space floor. That's going to create lanes to get some easy buckets at the rim. So I mean you saw the Lakers performance. Last night they were able to get some scores in transition to get themselves in a rhythm. And that's going to be big. I mean the Lakers. When they outscore their opponent in transition twelve and one sees it? Wow so that's got to be there formula for success. It starts on the defensive end. There's a reason why the King Lebron James is calling. Anthony Davis the defensive player of the year. Because that's how good a D- has been up until this all add one other name because you and I talked trump for the show. Dwight is playing his role perfectly now. He three last night in garbage time. That's not his role on there were cloud and they were exactly right put. Dwight is bringing energy defense and rebounding off the bench. And we've talked about whether it's smarter not to play center alongside Anthony. Davis isn't the Best Avenue. Anthony Davis playing the five and it probably is long term but with Javaid giving you a decent few minutes and Dwight giving you legitimate minutes then then all of a sudden it's like well let's do what makes him happy where you can switch where you can play the four ring. Play more out on the perimeter. The one thing I do like about Vail being with a D is developed to a a lot of the dirty work the offense rebound second shades points and you saw that in a game last night and one other thing before we go because I have been not to pat myself on the back but I've been very very accurate on predicting the narratives that are coming with this Laker team going into the year. I said they're going to get all get out to a very hot. Start and folks will blame the schedule. We saw that immediately we then started to in once they had this back to back. I said if and when they win it what you're going to start to hear as well well when you really look at it is the West actually as good as it once was and you started to hear that yesterday. Here's the next narrative that's coming. I guarantee it. The Lakers shouldn't be trying. This heart are the Lakers doing themselves a disservice by putting so much energy into the regular season what what just so they get to host the the La Clippers who have their same building in the conference finals. The people are grasping running out of reasons to try to discredit the team and with the best player ever and a guy who right now is not only offensive player of the Year Pretty Heavy Davis moving up the MVP rankings also as well and a team that seemed to be in disarray. One off season ago and now has a Rossa. Looks like it's been together for four years and so because of that people are going to try to find different. Reasons isn't and if it's not going to be able to be the record. It's not going to be the schedule. It's going to be really would the Lakers be better off load managing rather than you know trying to win basketball the bowl games because there's not a lot of excuses left other than to say. Oh that's the best team in the rumblings of that have already started..

"We all know that about you, so it was going to get your side of the story. Thank you for sharing. We're gonna stay talking about the warriors. I don't know how Katie would feel about this very spot player. He's watching he should probably. See separate has been unstoppable, since Kevin Durant got hurt in the four-game sweep against the blazers Steph averaged about thirty seven points per game. While shooting nearly forty three percent from three point range, that led Charles Barkley to say that Steph has put his name back in the conversation for best player in the world, along with Durant, LeBron Jaanus and kunai. So Chris art is back with us. Krista step along in that discussion. You know, I've had this discussion a lot with Isaiah Thomas. The legend New Zealand Troy. Disrespect to the current Isaiah. But. About the goat and about best players in the world at any given time, and he is said, we know he was a six point guard. He said when you guys in the media talk about the goat or the best player. You're really only talking about guys six six and over like he's like you don't even consider any guards even twenty guards and he's small guards other than magic six eight and that's been fair though. Because the game has always been about height, and big men, dominated depend the only two small players that ever lead their teams to championships, not just one championship, but multiple ones was is an Thomas and Steph curry, but now that the game is more about point guards and wing players. Now that it's a junk shooting three point league. Why can't you now throw a point guard into the conversation and I think it's hard to compare players in basketball because they're different sizes. Is in different skill sets. Like how do you really compare who was better between shack and Coby Ray did such different things? It's not just a checklist of skills. Who's the better shoot better pass? I think the most affairs way to compare players is impact impact on winning. And if they have staff to have obviously superstar statistics, but if you got superstar statistics, then let's look at the impact on winning and if Steph curry lease them to the championship without Kevin Durant. How why can't you say he's the best player in the world he's he doesn't have this everybody's overwhelming talent?.

"I think that LeBron Jaanus or whoever the future captains are she'll be the coaches you the all-star picking at the game and do it in person. Oh, so it's like a pickup game. Yes. I like it weird. So. Yeah. So like, all right. I got curry. I got I really liked that we're going to pick in the players go into the locker room for fifteen minutes come out with their uniforms and they play basketball. How cool would that be? I think that'll be hesitant at the pay for both those jerseys. But understandably I like it but during so the teams get picked, right? So the the funny the funny part about that somebody will get last picked value. The Kemba would have been the last pick teams disappear into the locker room. It could be fifty minutes, thirty minutes, whatever. But during that time you make an event like Super Bowl my music. Some you don't remember when Shek entered as a sons on sons all-star game. Yeah. And he was in the weird mass can do in the weird dances. Yeah. I you know, what we best watching that. Also watching that pickup Guinea pig. Seeing the guys who get booed and cheered. Or maybe you do the picks. And then you have the three point and the dunk, and then you have the game or something like that. But I know the game Sunday by itself. Yeah. I maybe saying like or I did I like that. But maybe like in the middle of the day like their pre-game stuff. They just do it outside in front of everybody public things. So like I liked I liked Jaanus. And we're picking the teams, but it was like a remote. Right. Like, I want they were at their own location. Yeah. On the court with the fans in attendance. And I would I would also like to see the reaction of the players when they get picked. I think it'd be great. And honestly, I kinda wanna see stews if like drink. It's boot he gets offended and like it comes down to the last two. And then everybody's like who's gonna be the last two yet. But then like Kemba would. Be like, getting cheered. The most everyone is he's the hometown guy of thing. So going back to the rising stars world or US? I'm really liking the world team you like the US team I do too. But like with the Andre Bohdan Donna's last year's MVP, Luca Danni, like those three themselves to Ben Simmons is also there. That's right. This is a very who was starting. I would say Luca Bogue on Eytan, Ben Simmons for sure. And then I don't know who'd be the last one that one's Lori. Could be marking in. I like to be honest. We see Diaz honestly. Don't own Fritz American would also exander too. Yeah. It could be marketing was in all rookie first team last year. So he can definitely take. Yeah. US team. If I guess the starters, I'd say FOX coups, MMA, Tatum Mitchell, and John Collins, did you say taken them said Tatum. So Collins, yet Joan Collins, he's averaging nineteen and ten okay. He's just one of the ones that are not what's the word. He's not as looked at as the others. He's also isn't he in the dunk contest to? Yeah. I even dunker he six all. He's in athlete. He's if he doesn't do it between the legs twice dunk. I'm not gonna watch. Will you have to watch TV doesn't well watch the highlights. Who is the most what team is the most players in this. I think it's the let's see I think it's the kings. They have three guys on this. I think. Yeah. Maybe the Nick Lakers. I think the Lakers do we'll ball won't be playing. But he was named to it. Why what he's not playing hurt. Oh, that's right. That's right. Or is dad will play for them. Okay. I would watch that. If he did if lavar came in and played forum, I would love that. Lavar tickets spot of his son like in reality..
"lebron jaanus" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"It's good ownership. I mean, he doesn't have to be the tough guy didn't have to be the rebounded and have to be the best defender to be the emotional leader doesn't even have to be the leader. He can shoot score and win MVP's. It's the best place in the world. Let's go to Nick right via the cower global satellite network. First things. First, let's start with a Durant thing. Good joy throws up these high these ice age hypotheticals if he wins nine more trophies. I have no problem to two more. I I contend he's the Peyton Manning to Brady and there's nothing wrong with that agree or disagree. Listen, he he's never going to pass the Braun in the old time pantheon in order to do that. Not only what do you mean? More rings, he'd need a bunch more league in VP's. He would need to play longer than anyone expects him to. But the what you what was reported by you said the Atlantic, right? Yeah. That was exactly what I have heard is pushing him to New York is he got pushed to Golden State by people around him saying, you're better than LeBron man. The guy he's always looked up to the way. The only reason people won't acknowledge it is you don't have the rings goes somewhere. You're guaranteed ring. Everyone will acknowledge it. And it kills him that that is not what happened going to New York. A franchise that hasn't won a title in forty five years and winning a title similar to the LeBron Cleveland title while that wouldn't push Kevin Durant abroad. Lebron? In the pantheon. It could push them above LeBron in the right now Durant is in that same boat Kobe's in which is one of the greatest players ever to never be the best player in the league at any given moment because as we know when went from Jordan to shack to Dunkin to LeBron someone's going to take it after LeBron Jaanus is in the pole position right now. A title for Durant in New York would have him snatch. It I think that's one of the reasons he likes that idea, by the way you and I both liked the Braun, but I will say this fifteen years three titles. There is some carnage when you do business. It's the great duality of life. You know.
"lebron jaanus" Discussed on The Starters
"Where you said you saw everybody's picks online. You know media writers guys on TV. Obviously, you know, a lot of people the Angela Russell just many people had Rudy Gobert index. Right time to scrap the west and east picks. Just make the best. Yeah. Best players because we'll probably get there. Because you know, we heard that the coach was instructed just pick who you think a best position yet. We're already doing the selecting of teams. Now, it doesn't it's no east versus west. It's LeBron Jaanus. That's the next step. It's like, okay. Let's just pick the best twenty four because now it makes no sense to have it doesn't make any. No, you're not playing for east and west. Yeah. Because we're playing an all-star game. Best twenty four players should be represented, regardless of conference. Yeah. I think we will get there. I don't see why we wanted to sex should be twenty six you want an MBA roster. I guess. Since he's been in the league. He he he saw what it's always been twelve since he's been anyways. He was flabbergasted by the fact that it's been twelve oh since he's been in the league, the rosters have been thirteen. And he was he thought he saw he's like I can only make eleven pick step twelve guys on my team. That's not a real roster. Make a thirteen given to a contracts he can play a little bit in their rookie sophomore game a little bit in the all star game five minutes. Jimmy Butler said last year, it was like they had eleven guys, Austin Horton. He did a deep dive on Twitter. I saw you got saw this going around. It was shared with Austin Horton was going to be your deepest snub. I was like, yeah. Because. The guy should get a bed leading some feelings. You know? No, Austin Horton, did a deep dive on Twitter about how go bears numbers compared to the other bigs selected from the west like your Davis, and your cat, and your lamarcus and your Yokich compares better stats than those four guys in like a lot of categories like a lot of defensive obviously minded categories, but total blocks in total boards and rebound percentage. Both offense and defense defensive winters offensive rating, and then and then some offense of categories like efficiency field goal percentage, true shooting percentage, and so on and so on and so on this a long thread, he's deserving he really is deserving and I'm a bit shocked, and I wonder if the problem because we were talking about a tasks like are some coach is going to vote for Mitchell. And did that come into play. Like did they almost like maybe split votes in a weird way probably hurt both of them. Because when you look at the jazz and your coach you're like, how do we beat the jazz when we're playing defense? We gotta stop Donovan Mitchell when we're plan offense. We gotta figure out a way to not be attacking Rudy Gobert the whole time. So yeah, it's it's easy to see coaches. Choose. One way or the other, you know, depending on where their preferences lie. Do I am I'm more of an offensive guy or a defensive guy? I'm taking one of the other split it up and then lamarcus Aldridge sneaks. Yeah. Yeah. And and the Spurs are good. It does feel like they should have it ran the derozen. I feel like the derozen all-star buzz dropped off major in January, right? When he couldn't hit a shot. Absolutely. Because it was hot too because he stopped splitting his votes. It's putting their. Yeah. No. I think that's right. Crazy crazy stuff. We'll see. I mean, there could you never know to guy could get injured, you know, breaks a hand or tweaks the, and then you gotta get another replacement, but right now, no jazz and not bias, and well, no derozen. I guess anyone else. A Luca's a bit of a, you know, some people had him in a lot of people wanted them in. Yeah. I mean, his numbers put him in the conversation. But if this team was better, he would I think that's what happened there because house are pretty far back now. Right. They're getting down there. All right..

That's left off here from the west. You've got Paul George. You've got Kevin Durant Steph. Curry James harden gate, not not really a name in there. These doesn't belong. They all they all fit in the east. You've got quite Leonard. You've got Embiid. You've got Kimball. Walker little bit of surprise there. And Kyrie Irving Kimball walkers having a pretty good. He's had a great year. He's just he's in Charlotte. So that's one of the small markets in these doesn't anyway, the name that's not their key is Anthony Davis. Because if you and I took turns name the best player in the league. We're not getting past three or four before we say his gimme gimme a west. Again. The west is Steph. Jeff, katie. Okay, hardin. Okay. Lebron? Okay. The one that is. Paul george. So basically, it was a tie between Paul George and Anthony Davis, and they went to a tiebreaker procedure and George gets it. But Anthony Davis isn't one of the best five or three frontcourt players in the Western Conference. But he's one of the two or three best players in the whole league. How's that work? They doesn't make any sense if you because if we were doing a different sort of draft, and we weren't doing an all-star draft if we're doing draft saying, okay every player in the league is available to pick. And you wanna top four. He's going to go number one. Right. If we're if we're doing the next year though draft LeBron seventeen season seasons for now. I'm saying you're starting to team and you gotta play next five years who you pick him. I drive is. There is a survey by GM's that asset very question par to the season starting guests who they still took first LeBron LeBron. Anthony Davis fine. Second Anthony Davis. I'm not gonna lead you face. You might take him second. Yes. But you certainly could take a Janas in. If you feel by John takes inside, you certainly would take it just hit pay dirt. He's not a bad pick. So. Yeah. Nobody's taking Paul George loans in that conversation over Paul George. I don't think so the Anthony Davis is not an all against an all star game. So who really cares? But I'm sure he cares. I'm sure that he cares that he's not a starter in the game because he's one of the three or four best players in the league. And he's got to come off the bench and that game come on. I don't think you see. I don't know. It's just me. I've never worry. Whether or not I was a starter in the Pro Bowl or not a starter. I did never never bothered me. You know?.

"Not a question about the Lakers man on what is that? The we miss doing halftime because we we play well going into have coming out. They don't see what the pro. I don't know. The problem is they they don't they don't make adjustments and don't have same kind of energy. That's kind of concern for me to quarter production to gleam that night. I was I was very frustrated watching the game list. I is not even just a game last night. I think overall. For whatever reason I since that Luke Walton struggles with second-half adjustments. I haven't really seen them. Come out in the second half. It'd be a different heat. No. You know, you could tell when it's been an adjustment. May would a team guy comes out. I mean a team comes out on the floor and everything's different. All of a sudden is a run, you know. And that's that was the good thing about it. I hate to go back to Phil Jackson. But when you look at him that was one thing when he had the Lakers or even Chicago Bulls, his second half adjustments. Whatever he was doing just it. You could tell you. You could see it. There's things going on there. Number one in Calvin, right? The Lakers lost game not in the fourth quarter where they finally pulled away. But Minnesota dropped in eleven to one run on them early in the third quarter and got the game because the Lakers had a nice cushion. They had they had to leave the ten points. It's not the end of the world against not over. But it's a little bit of a cushion. And that they went away right away. Coming out of halftime. You mentioned Phil Jackson. You mentioned those polls teams in those Lakers teams and Jackson, obviously is one of the best of the best to ever done it. But the differences. He had veteran teams. So whatever he was telling his guys they're veterans like we're talking about their pros. They can take and go out in the second half and implement that. Whereas a younger team, they're not they're ninety. Veterans on the team. But they're they're they're they're nuts. And bolts of that team is not veterans. It's younger is right now. But they're set up right now as true in it. But you still have veterans on the team in because you have those veterans on a team. They certainly could give that advice or show. What it is when they get on the floor does not change if their role guys though, it is supposed to be different. Yeah. I guess it could LeBron picked his all stars. Did he miss the biggest snub will tell you next feels views? Good key. We're going to Atlanta and just a couple of days. We'll be there all week next week, and no moss Cantina. So if you are planning on heading out there, make sure that you come and check us out. Of course, we get to sleep in a little bit nine to one and Lanta time is when will be Our saying. saying in shirt is because the clocks going to say seven something four something body's not going allow me to do that. To know. I have experienced in this, and let me tell you after that, nightlife. I don't give a damn what time zone. I'm in those three hours until I have to be at work helps. Of coordinate time. Case fine. If I'm up, that's fine. I'll just sit up, but I don't have to be here. Those three hours make a different. I hate agreeing with Ryan. But he's right about that. Would you say I said, I hate agreeing with you. But you're right on all aspects or no just. That means you come into BULLDOGS with no not. But by way with Curtis was saying I have already gained out into Calvin. I have already gained planned everything. I know exactly how I'm gonna handle all of this stuff. Well, we got by the way, you're part of my game plan. We'll talk about later. We had me. Sure, we'll figure that out along the way. All right. So the NBA all star game starters have been finalized that LeBron Jaanus got the most votes. So they're going to be the team captains, and they're gonna go through and they get to pick the reserves..

"Is there any possibility of that happening? I would not would never watch the Cavs. I'm looking at their schedule. They've two games versus Chicago. Yeah. I mean, they those are, but they lost the Chicago by twenty they? I mean, Jim Boylan heckuva. Coach course two games against the Washington. Wizards. Maybe you know, they sputter again two games against the Celtics though to game. I mean, there's a chance they the next as well. And yet was looming over the Cavaliers the Patrick McCaw situation. Your times Mark Stein reported the Cavs or being investigated for salary cap circumvention by signing wars restricted free agent. Pat, McCaw to the two years six million dollar non-guaranteed deal and about a week later after signing that deal, they waived him and whole thing is made no sense honors very odds Stein. We'll finish Stein reported that the warriors the ones who filed a complaint, and there's some around the league who believe that they sign Mocatta get him out of his deal with the warriors has has situation with the warriors restrict free agency hashtag heady season Pettis. I mean, it looks very suspicious for sure to cut him awake later. But how could they prove it though? Right. Code of silence and less. There's text messages or voice meals or something like that. How do you prove that? It's just as possible that They may they may. offer the leap those messages. Yeah. Something like that. And we're kind of that could be too. We're kind of burying the lead here is that if they do if they are found responsible for this. Then the penalty is they lose their first round pick. You imagine. Could it be a second round pick from what I've heard it was the penalty is you you forfeit your first route piss, so if this costs them Zion, no way, there's no way. This is positive. They made a strong enough offer for the warriors not to match because they want wanna get that money. And then you get this guy. And you realize he sucks say piece out, and then you sign a guy who's worse and campaign to help your tank out. So I mean, there's no way to prove it there's unless there's records, I just actually happening. I put a pass the Cavs though, they've done a lot of things over there. I wrote that I wrote that piece about the Cavs over the giving break mainly just cleanse myself. I was thinking way too much about the Cavs. And I wanted to just get all my thoughts out there. So that I wouldn't have to think about them again, I have to think about back in with this of. But it would just that would take their steps of despair to a whole new low, and I'm not rooting for it because that's that's completely unfair for the franchise. But the fact that it's even a possibility is is something it, wouldn't it be cool. I hope I hope it doesn't happen. I mean. I mean. The warriors have been pursuing McCaw so much like this is like the two-time defending champions. And they've really really been like fighting for McCaw keeping on the roster. Filing complaints back. He's freaking amazing. Right acting. It's crazy. Also, he's like, so he's supposedly going to be signing with the rafters. Yes. The rent. So they're basically CJ miles is basically out of the rotation because he's having the worst year career catcher threes. So they're bringing in a guy who can't threes. I'm saying the raptor sign you'll you've probably got some ability. They they've really been killing last year's on rostrums. And then it works out like Toronto traded Ella. Mckinney to the warriors for Pat McCaw. Also, they're just getting all all. Yeah. Zoya Intel moving onto the last headline mine is Luca dodge named NBA all star team. Wow. I mean, this is not much of a prediction is number three in votes. Right. Yep. I know it's not really going on a limb hair. The the second returns. For all sorts came out on Thursday, and Luca has two point two million votes. That's only less than LeBron Jaanus and carry that's it. So I more than Steph that's more than Katie AD party, George Kawai, Hardin and bead his two point two million voters more combined than Ben Simmons Jayson Tatum. Lonzo ball hint. Devon, Booker bad.

Two by other ravens being AFC north leader. After this weekend's action. Really complicated question. My friend. I think the ravens are a totally different team now, and they should have it could be the Kansas City Chiefs team. The ravens are legit. On yesterday's show discussed Suns owner, Robert servers reported threat to the sun's out of Phoenix. It doesn't get the money. He wants to renovate their count arena last night. Took to Twitter to share this message. First and foremost, the Phoenix Suns are not leaving Phoenix. I'm one hundred percent committed and have been for the last four years a solution to keep them in downtown Phoenix where they belong. I'm a strong proponent as evidenced by the term sheet that I signed last week. That we should renovate the talking stick resort arena. Once again restore it to world class facility. I am one hundred percent all in keeping this team right here where we stand, and I wanna make sure that that message comes across crystal clear to everyone be. Saviour? So you believe Roberts server when he says he's one hundred percent committed to Phoenix. Joke. So. I think he preferred me in Phoenix. But I don't believe the allegation or the claim that he made that threat to a local government official because that is how business gets done because Vegas and Seattle are very very very attractive locations for an MBA team that.

"No i just made from people being like all that stupid right of course you need to be able to hit a jumper we have so many great players in the league that the best mode of operation against them is to back off of them right that was the case with lebron is the case you know you'd rather have lebron jaanus westbrook and this kid who have been watching a lot more recently as guys that if if you have a choice dude certainly rather have them shooting you know everybody always says tournament to jump shooters right now i would say that there is weirdly as i have watched and this is just my opinion there's a weird benefit to that being the case and just hear me out defense is then start back so much further from these guys right 'cause you're giving them space because what you want is for them to take the jump shot and what you find with many of these great players that teams are attempting to turn into jump shooters they use that ex space to get a full head of steam does that make sense for sure you are now giving them space to start moving downhill yeah and you see it with westbrook and you see it with the honest and you see it with lebron and you see it was simmons and so there is actually this bizarre advantage sometimes for them not being guys that you hogue up on as to not shoot the ball because now you're giving them a couple of steps and they still blow passed to you it doesn't matter if you're these guys are such great athletes and are so long that you can be to feed off of them and if you're giving them that extra step to start getting going downhill they can make their play and that's how it feels was simmons.
