"And look, I mean, again, it's championship a bus, right? There's no. What do you have LeBron on your team that that's all the expectations are? We're sitting here talking about can they get out of the play and will they make where will they be seated in the plane? What can they even sneak in home court in the first hour? I do think they will get on a roll at some point this season, but it's been a tough slog for them. Anthony Davis, after the triple overtime lost of the king, said, oh, I know we're ten and 11, but we could just have a ten game winning streak and be 20 and 11. So, what I think the Phoenix Suns? I mean, it was wild how cavalier he was about the potential of doing something like that. But that again, the first Lakers team he played on, they said, hey, we're not going to lose two games in a row all year. And they only did it twice. They almost went through being able to pull that off. That seemed like an audacious thing to call upon themselves to achieve. And for the most part, they stuck to it. So I don't know. Maybe there's a reason why he has that confidence. And he recognizes that the things that have come up through the start of the season are real factors that they try to push through, but you can't reasonably push through and now a lot of those things have fallen, by the way side because they have a healthy roster and they have some more familiarity and I don't know if they're actually against the wall, they better do it, but they would feel a lot differently if this team was ten games under a 500 rather than 500. And look, like I said, other than the jump shot, I think AD looks awesome. Let's go over some quick injury notes, one of which affects the Lakers at least indirectly, Dave the Western Conference, I think now has officially lost one potential title contender in theory at least title container in theory this leads with the news that Michael Porter junior is going to undergo back surgery and potentially miss all or most of the season Jamal Murray is still recovering from an ACL. There was always this carrot at the end of the season and hey, remember how I loved the nuggets last year? I was going to pick them to make the finals before Jamal Murray got hurt. That's a championship caliber team, and there was always this carrot at the end of the year with Jamal recovers in time and gets enough games under his belt and maybe we'll see it. Well, now MPJ is out for some undetermined period of time Murray is not back. He's not scheduled to be back for a while. It just feels like a lost season for the nuggets which just hurt you a lot when you have an MVP talent on your roster. And it does remove sort of one, I think, one potential sort of roadblock in the west and it just shows you that Murray injury was just devastating. And you only get so many shots at this thing and you never know when one or more of your shots are going to be nuked by events out of your control. And it's just every single one of them is precious. And the nuggets had one last year before injuries. It doesn't look like they're going to have one this year. And in the east, the nets just announced that Joe Harris is going to undergo surgery, their season. I mean, they're number one in these, but their season has been derailed by now injuries. And of course, the Kyrie vaccination thing may it's just a lot of variables go into this, but that Denver one that was a looming threat that I think you have to put off to 2022, 2023, we'll just reporting. He broke the story that Michael Porter junior will make a full recovery is expected to make a full recovery. Let's hope. So let's hope that Denver team gets another shot 'cause man, it's fragile in the NBA, Dave. You know, there are still people you hear about was the Lakers bubble title a little bit of a fluke? Does it count as much? And this is like, I went the other way. It was like, if you win in that environment, it's almost like you get a plus asterisk, but you never got to apologize for winning because winning is really, really hard. Yeah, I appreciate it. You're disciplined, whether it be on the podcast or going on NBA today, whatever the contenders in the west would be talked about and obviously so far this year, it's been warriors and sons. But you were like, well, Denver, they get married and clippers, so they get quiet. You can not count those teams out. And I think maybe you will have to be as disciplined anymore in those conversations. Now you just have to mention the clippers with Kauai. Because I have a hard time seeing Denver getting it done without having that kind of X Factor that Porter breaks. Yeah, and I said it before. The clippers and Kawhi himself have kept that door ajar. And I don't think anyone 3° remove from Kawhi Leonard does anything like that by accident. And so all I can conclude without any hard reporting beyond that is if they do well enough seating wise, they're in a position where he can look and say, depending on how everything goes with his knee, obviously, we got a chance. I'm not ruling it out. I'm not sure I expected. Maybe I do, I don't know. But anyway, look, this is the Lakers are this is the most interesting the Lakers have been to me in a long time. It's just 'cause it's just such an interesting puzzle to see them try to solve. I love watching them even when they're ugly to watch and man. Still they don't know if you watch the broadcast ever or you rewatch the broadcast, even stew Lance is starting to get a little upset by the stack. I mean, James worthy had a little tantrum the other night, but still lands on color commentary. He's even starting to be like, oh, wow. They actually cut on that possession. He's getting frustrated. It's not been good basketball. But the team that they put out on the court for the most part through 22 games has not been the team that they envision where they put this team together in the off season, starting with LeBron James. So I'd say give it ten games here. If it continues to be so unreliable inconsistent ten games from now then certainly it's time to start selling the alarm, but you gotta at least give them some runway with this group healthy to see what they have. And the thing that's impressed me, I guess, one more silver lining is that when they have had their slippage, they have appeared to be accountable to one another. And they analog let go of the rope and it's not like a group that doesn't seem to recognize that there's going to be some hard work involved here, but it's probably worth it to do that. And so that can help them and ten games now. They could have a completely different outlook on the season. I've seen it with LeBron James teams before. The calves are 19 and 20 and 2014, 2015. And a big part of the reason they were had that record was LeBron James and this is a bunch of time. And I know LeBron's 5 years older than he was back then, but guess what the guy, the guy knows how to play basketball pretty good. Approaching number two, all time in minutes, which is a static I keep repeating because I think it's just incredible and also a little scary for the Lakers considering they need MVP level LeBron and there's essentially no history of MVP level play with this level of minutes, but there's no precedent for LeBron James. Look, I didn't pick the Lakers to win the west at the beginning of the season, but I also said, if they have LeBron and AD healthy, you can't rule them out. And I'm still there, and I'd even give it more than ten games. The roster is so weird, the injuries have been so much like I want to see the next 20 to 25 games 'cause it's only been a 115 minutes or whatever I said, but that big three with no center look appears to be working. And that's the only look that really I care about when things matter. So I'm going to keep monitoring it. Certainly Golden State Phoenix have lapped the field with Utah coming up behind them, but the Lakers aren't scared to anybody if they have a LeBron and AD healthy. So Dave mcmenamin you will continue to chronicle this soap opera of a team. You do great work. It's good to see you. I tease something. Tease. I have a story coming out this week. I believe Thursday on the Russell Westbrook LeBron James pairing thus far. Oh. Maybe to learn some things in there to your listeners to our readers. Please check it out. Thursday,.

"If I get paid more money every time I see that, or say that, I'm going to be in business. So in regard to the issue with LeBron James on the floor, adult actress, pornographic star, Kendra lost bob Ryan. Do you know who Kendra lush is bob Ryan? No, I do not. He would not admit it. Maybe maybe Goodman does. Kendra lust has said that Isaiah Stewart is a fake tough guy. No, she said that Anthony Davis is a fake tough guy. So she is one of the most popular adult film actresses in the world. She has 7.2 million followers on Instagram and she says that Anthony Davis should have got involved. She says that Anthony Davis is soft. How do you feel about Kendra lust by? I guess she's entitled to her opinion as well. So I can tell you. I don't have any. I have no opinion about her. I'm sorry. I don't know anything about her. I just wanted to get a porn actress. This is pod. I'm sure you did, but I can't Jeff Goodman's dying right now. Bob, you're fine. We're taking you off the hook. I am because I think maybe ten ways worked with her before bob. I don't know. I don't know what she is either, but she may be honest something. She might pay the bills. Well, listen, Anthony Davis is not the toughest student in the world. Isaiah probably would have broken him in a house. And it's probably would have been out for the year. If he had gotten involved in the scalpel. So let's be honest. This is the right move for Anthony Davis. Anytime something breaks out, this is a guy who can get hurt anywhere anyplace in any way. Run the other way. Go ahead, get the hell out of there. And let Dwight Howard get in there and mix it up. Let him have some value for this team. But my guess is the white Howard probably ran in the tunnel on this when this whole thing was going on. Yeah, she said, something like Anthony Davis didn't want any of that smoke or something along those lines. Anyways, hey, look, 7.2 million followers on Instagram. Well, that's a few more that could not have any followers. I got to tell you that speaking of not wanting to get involved in a fracas story, I was sitting on the bench and my junior year at the lines for school. We're playing board in town military institute..
Fresh update on "lebron james" discussed on The Lowe Post
"Got back on the court for that brief playoff rob that they had usually he comes into the season and he has this sort of robot malfunction where he is turning the ball over. That's the last part of his game that comes back to him after an off season is his feel and his touch. And his turnover is usually spike early on and then taper off. And because he's had these stop and go, the turnovers he hasn't quite gotten over that kind of unfortunate part of his game that tends to be the first sign of rust for him. And so you take that away, give him some more familiarity with his teammates, give him some actual games under his belt, where his conditioning goes up, because again, if they want to stick to this fast break style, play which I'm not sure, ultimately will be the best way to serve them, but if they are, they need guys to be fully committed and fully in condition to do so. I actually thought it was notable last night against the pistons maybe the highlight of the game was just a terrible skip pass from Rus Russell Westbrook that nearly went out of bounds, LeBron caught it right by the pistons bench, hit a three flip back to kind of give a look to the bench. But then from that moment, he sprinted back on defense. And it was the type of sprint that reminded me of the early days when ty lue took over the calves and he was like purposely LeBron was trying to show by and to tie because tie one of them play a faster style play. And you saw the way he ran, you can't you can't miss it. LeBron James running at his full capacity is a sight to behold. And I saw it last night after that three, and I wondered, okay, is that because everyone is taking their cues from LeBron if you play with them on a team and if he's showing that we can't be satisfied with a score, we're going to bust our humpback on defense. Maybe that's a small kernel to denote as they can continue to improve. The running thing is really interesting because I just think of Russ is going to be on the floor with AD and sometimes with another big man. They have to run. And even like AD and DJ even got quick seal post-op buckets last night. Even if you have a favorable matchup 'cause you can test it a shot and leaked out whatever because they're half court offense is just eh, they're 26th in points per possession after made baskets by the other team. That's according to unpredictable. But look, we live this movie two years ago too where they're half court offense was an area of concern, all season long, and then the playoffs started and they couldn't miss any jump shots and they were unbelievable and LeBron and AD are so good. They don't need optimal spacing. They don't need optimal anything. That's the whole point of being a superstar. You can thrive in any kind of environment, but their second in pace, their transition offense has been pretty good. I just like the way it looks when they run because that's the best use of Russ even THT. He's gonna be one of their bellwethers to me because whether he can make an up over open threes is a big deal for them as another answer in those AD at the 5 lineups. But he's a good grab and go guy. It's interesting to hear you think you say that the running thing is we don't know about the sustainability of it. That's really interesting. I hadn't heard that before because to me, they have to play that way with rust, but it's interesting to hear what you're saying. Just because they haven't had the full buy and not necessarily the players don't believe it's the right system. You had to commit to it. If you are running team, it doesn't run. It looks terrible. It's like a zone defensive team being a serial guy. If you don't actually play the zone the right way, the zone looks terrible. And kind of the same thing. They had to like, you had to sprint. And that's why you look at the guys on the bench. In a way, it's helpful that rondo isn't playing right now because you've got to have voices like that. To constantly remind constantly hold them to a certain standard. Constantly explain to whomever it may be the Wayne Ellington's of the world or campaign is more that your job on this possession is to as fast you can to the corner and really, really fast. Because you need to make sure to cause the defense to react, which allows us to open up our transitionary offense where we have all these triggers that are based on where the defense is positioned. And that's like conceptually all these guys can be on the same page, but you actually had to train your body to do it. What's the actual scuttlebutt on Frank Vogel's job status if there even is any? I mean, there is scuttlebutt. But there's always, there's always scuttlebutt. There's scuttlebutt about everybody. Yeah, that's true. I think the best way to look at it is anyone who's been around the league for even a couple of seasons recognize that any coach getting a one year extension that is a sign of not a full confidence in the organization. So that starts the conversation before the season even began. Now you add in the fact that the Lakers added a former head coach and David fizdale to the staff in the off season. So they have someone theoretically with head coaching experience should Frank be relieved. You add a little bit more fuel to the fire. And by the way, you don't want to it sucks to put fizz in that position, right? Because it sucks to sort of, and it's just a thing. He knows LeBron, coach LeBron and Miami, they're very close. It sucks for him that he's just going to be looked at that way, but also let's not be naive. When the Lakers make that higher, they know the kind of speculation that's going to invite whether it's fair or not. Yeah, absolutely. And listen, I think the things that you would point to as to why they perhaps would stick this out beyond just loyalty to their frankville because what 14 months ago they won the championship. You sometimes have to scream like, did I just did I just wake up and Frank Vogel was being lauded for his instilling a defensive identity, getting LeBron and AD to buy into it like all the most important stuff you're supposed to have, and they won. But from the negotiations with Toronto to however they decided to deal with Alex Caruso there's been several examples over the last couple of years where the Lakers their decision making was determined in large degree by their wallet. And not so sure they would want to make the financial commitment to go something like that, midseason. Maybe when the season's over, maybe they reassessed, but if there was the candidate out there, like if there was if this was the Steve Nash Dwight Howard Kobe pal Lakers and Phil Jackson had just retired from coaching 18 months prior and you had someone like that looming over the organization, still in the city, still with familiarity with at the roster. Oh yeah, I could see this conversation having more legs. But right now, I think it's kind of a it's a lot of people who know the industry talking about it because there's an expectation for this team to win and Frank didn't get that true vote of confidence with the extension. But on the other side, what is the solution? Well, who is the guy? I don't see it. Well, and also, look, do I think Frank Vogel's done an amazing coaching job this year? No, I mean, I don't like some of the lineups he plays, but it's also very early, and I coaches sometimes take time to get to different places and Lebrons must have the season and hasn't looked great in the happily great by his standards. In the half he's played. And you knew the minute you traded a whole basketball team for Russell Westbrook, who's one of the trickiest fits in some ways in the MBA. Particularly with another ball dominant player like LeBron, you knew this was going to be a puzzle that was going to take time to solve even given full health to everybody on the rest of which they have not come close to having. So I don't think Frank Vogel has found the solution yet. I also don't think he's been the problem. But the Lakers just for the stakes are the stakes. This is a championship or bust team that has two double digit wins this season. One of which was a ten point on the nose when they've played seemingly they're an overtime every other night and blowouts are typically the hallmark of a title contender. How many blow Owens do you get? They haven't really got any trailed by 25 plus 6 times this season already. Which is not a good number. And but they will be better..

But a lot is the fastest and easiest way to bet on all your favorite sports that align with stuffed with deals of Thanksgiving. Thank you better in line for making this show possible. All right, guys, to me, the big story is, you know, LeBron James. Okay, we saw the video. We saw the incident Isaiah Stewart gets two games, which I can't believe that's all they got. That's beyond me. And LeBron James. Bob, I want to start with you about the altercation, you know, LeBron elbows the guy, didn't look attention. LeBron turned around and said, my bad, but Stuart goes crazy. And all your years of covering this league, how bad was this? Well, let's start with the incident. I mean, let's talk about the background. My first question was what was there something leading up to this? Was there a reason why LeBron James went out of character? He is not known for anything like this ever. Did I know of, okay? Right. He's not known for this. So was there something that started done earlier? And he said, all right, I had enough kid. I'm going to show you who's boss. Don't mess around with the king. Or something. I don't know. Okay, no, but look so that's a B and LeBron. It's nothing that LeBron is known for. Okay. He did it, though. And then it appears and certainly that's what his teammates think and I know in the Davis we saw the soundbite from him afterward said the bond immediately want to say, I'm sorry, okay, let's go. If that's the case, now everything is on Stewart. Yes, he's bleeding. Yes, this was I'm going to pick my words carefully. I've been covering this league directly for 52 years. Since 1969. I have never seen him terrifying person at the moment on the floor. Even including people who have thrown actual punches, you know, which you never got to do. You know, but that was a frightening, terrifying individual a large, powerful young man. Listed at two 50. God knows what he weighs who had a look of just frenzy. They couldn't subdue him. He wouldn't let it go. Wouldn't let it go. What triggered that? That's what I want to know. I don't know. Jeff, I watched him and I liked him in college and by the way, I thought he was and I have no idea he kind of reputation of any kind, Jeff, you would. Bob, I will tell you, he is the nicest kid the most soft spoken kid you will ever meet. He's 20 years old. I've spent an hour with him two years ago at Washington and I could not have been more impressed with Isaiah Stewart as a human being high character. Any anybody you talk to about Isaiah Stewart? Those are the first words that will come to their mouth. This high character, sweet, innocent, almost too nice off the court, but when he gets on the court. He is a man. Like he plays with a motor. That's what's got him into the league. That's what's gonna keep him in the league. His motor and listen, I don't know what it was exactly either, I don't know if it was one of the blood started flowing and he felt it that all of a sudden he lost it. But he lost it..

LeBron James Mocks Kyle Rittenhouse's Teary Testimony
"You know, some normal people might think it a bit cruel to mock an 18 year old for weeping on the stand. LeBron James didn't think that was a problem.

Commentator Gregg Jarrett Discusses the Riveting Rittenhouse Trial
"Greg Jarrod, welcome back to one on one. Great to be with you. Greg, you you've been in this tour tree business of the intersection of law and politics for a while, let's just put it a while. Is this I'm not a lawyer? Greg, and I come to this as somebody who sat in the back of a court once. When I got a speed, I was driving too fast and I had to go to a court salmons and I thought I've never been to a court. So I went in three hours early and I sat in the back just to look at what a county court was like as a newly minted American citizen. And it was fascinating. But it wasn't what we witnessing on TV screens across the nation for the last week. Is this a normal trial? Is this witness badgering is the judge saying, don't you be brazen with me? Is this par for the course? Give us your expert opinion on what we are seeing. Well, courtrooms can be high drama and, you know, centuries ago before television before the Internet before core TV where I worked for 8 years. You know, people would flock to courthouses in courtrooms in some ways it was their source of information, but it was also their source of entertainment and this certainly has not been entertaining, but it has been riveting to watch this unfold. And you see on the screen, Kyle rittenhouse made a compelling witness. He broke down. He sobbed. You know, I really hate to see somebody like LeBron James mock it with laughing emojis if LeBron James had actually watched much of the trial. He wouldn't have made such a stupid

LeBron James Reacts to Amassing Zero Votes for NBA's Best Player
"So we see this tweet from NBA Central 10 Scouts and executives voted on the best players heading into the 2021 2022 season. Yanez five votes, Kevin Durant five votes and LeBron James zero votes, and I guess this poll was done. Via ESPN, and LeBron sees it. And LeBron, of course, has to respond to it. Now let me remind you This was a few weeks back. Where the trade did go down with Russell Westbrook. And then the Lakers also acquired Carmelo Anthony LeBron James took to Twitter and you may not remember this tweet because he posted and then quickly deleted it and LeBron James said. Keep talking about my squad. Our age is the way he plays. He stays injured. We're past our time in this league, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Do me one favor, please. And I mean, please keep that same narrative energy. When it begins. That's all I ask. Thank you. I think he meant negative energy, but he he wrote narrative energy. Or maybe they're supposed to be a comma or period somewhere in that place. But you get the point. LeBron James, and I don't have a problem with him using this as motivation, right? Sometimes you use things as motivation. And you go. Yeah, that's not authentic. Like. Does anyone seriously believe that the Lakers don't have a shot to get to the NBA Finals this year? Especially with how I just laid it out. The Lakers just won a championship two years ago. Right? So now I'm going to say after one season later. Headed into them. It would be two seasons later. Oh, yeah. LeBron and Anthony Davis. No shot to win a championship like give me a break. And today LeBron sees this poll done by ESPN and he goes. Thank you. As if I didn't need more fuel if I didn't need more gas to fuel me. And then hashtag. Wash King.

"Young apparently is upset and we hear about this every year. It's mostly mad, and it seems like Madden. Players get more upset, which is the NFL. Then players care about their ratings. They can't do. Yes, well, apparently Trae Young is fed up. He's really fed up. How fed up Not only has he taken to social media saying, y'all ever going to get it right over his 89 ranking on two K 22, but Apparently close to people who know he talked to his agency and asked, Is there a way to sue to get him removed from the game? Because he thinks his representation is unfair. No, there's not. It's collectively bargained with the National Basketball Association. Your name, image and likeness actually was sold off by the union. That's why you pay your dues and you get your money from this. You actually paid for this trip so now thinks he is a 94 or higher, okay? For those who want to know that the highest ranking in the NBA NBA two K is LeBron James. Kevin Durant. Steph Curry 97 Be honest, They're all in 96. Then in 95, you've got quite a Leonard Luca Donges. Nicola your Joel and be James Harden. Damian Lillard. So by the way, I put him right behind them.

Tell us a little bit about about space jam before we before we let you go. You've been very generous with your time. But i'm very very curious about about this because that's that was a great first film this this this one is Pick up where it left off. How is it. How's it different than what is different First of all totally different from the first one that came out twenty five years ago. But i was very intimidated just from when i got when a script came to me and i'll set it on my desk. I was very intimidated. Because i understand you know the legacy behind the first one. I know i was. I was one that was like at all of it. I was twelve years old or eleven when it first came out and love the looney tunes. Obviously my ass for michael jordan is out of his world so very intimidated. But i was able to get myself to a point where i was like. I wanna i wanna do this. I felt like you know the space jam. Legacy is so iconic is so great. I wanted to be a part of the legacy and obviously the movie is now called. A legacy is kind of how about but We were able to. I worked with a great director of malcolm. Lee don cheetos is in a film as well opera. He's so i love him. He's helped me out a lot when we're all set but i just dove into it. I gave everything to all that green screen. And all that. I need you to look over here and just trust later. We're gonna we're gonna paint in a little character. You gotta look at like a little stand with an x. On it it's like working with just a nightmare right sean. Or the green screen. Green screen gives more. It was a nightmare the first few weeks. Of course it's weird right it so he's super weird because they're like no no no you're you're you're you have to be looking up so is that was that like a three picture deal or we're going to see how the first one goes or what did you do. Is it just the one. no no. it was just the one But i mean. Let's i'll be hearing so much about people's reaction to a so far. It has actually seen a movie so far screen. And so you know warner you know wants to Tackle it again. I wouldn't mind trying to see.

My daughter is super excited about it She doesn't know. I mean she's too young to know about the original tunes but now because of our dads she's getting back into the sat and was she like.

Cool that the person that's playing them in the movie. Looks like daddy look like me as he wear. My hairstyle is dressed in a right way. Like i don't want to buy plan me. Not lonely kassim actors to play your son's yes. We cast actors to kind of look like my family. We changed the names but they are yes. I got older son younger son and a daughter and a wife in the movie. so yes. that's kinda. Your kids didn't have approval over that casting.

I love the way by the way as you were talking about growing up. You kept saying we. You know that the people were around. You're saying we have an opportunity we have in our. You know we we gotta keep going. We gotta keep doing the things the way that you were part of something and that you relied like as you talked about these people that you leaned on it love that you talked about in that we. I think it's so important to have that kind of support system but as you talk to kids who don't have the shot that you had as you. What do you say to those kids who are like look man. I hit the lottery. I had a tremendous amount of skill. I great people around me. I'd god given gifts and i had the willpower to do it. That was the perfect storm. That's not going to be the experience for ninety nine point. Nine percent of the kids no question no question about. That's the one thing that we have at my school here. we don't. we don't even have a basketball complex at my school. You know but we have. We have art. We have art room. We have a music lab. We have a technology lab work computers. So we're we're we're all every single day acts our kids. What do you want to do. A lot of them say sports but a lot of them like listen. I wanna be a doctor you know so we have. Doctors come in to talk to our kids a lot of say okay. I want to be a cop. You know we got cops you know obviously at the front door when they walk in and so kind to our kids and they can talk to them and give them guidance. Like what do you want to be like. what do you want to be. What's your ass rate. What are your dreams. You might not even know what your aspirations are right now but you do have dreams. We all had dreams about what we wanted to be. So you know if it's something that they have passionate about we try to bring it to the school and try to give them the resources to in. Let's let's see if we can tap into it and it might. You might fail. have i one you know. Let's try it again or you might say i. Let's try something else in us all about being a kid. You try so many things until you finally figure out okay. Oh this is what i wanna do. They'll try to give them the resources. That's that's my whole thing. I want to just give them the resources to be tapping so whatever they want to do. I love that now. I wanna i wanna ask you stuff about playing in the game because you know i played basketball when i was a kid and i was like. I don't like buying. No i did and i was like when everybody when we go way. You're lebron you're describing playing basketball. I was a kid. I play about your experience play basketball. And whenever there was a rebound and everybody would run to the end of the other opposite end of the court. I go go do you guys go. I'll catch. I'm right behind him. I'm so close. I'm just gonna take a beat but i'm writing but wait but i look because i've been a couple of lakers game live. I was lucky enough to have courtside seats and seeing seeing seeing you play live and seeing the whole team player is so much more thrilling than tv but tv sterling to but to see it live is just unbelievably exciting. And and i. I couldn't even possibly begin to understand how you do what you do. But here's the thing. Here comes the question guys. It's worth the wait.

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

We are going to six cities. In north america. We have a ton to discuss dates. Venues even especial promo code for our listener a But but that's too much to make our guest wait for so that's going to be at the end but right now we gotta get to. What might be our greatest of all time. Oh have with us. Someone that would be best described as a true force. He's taken the gifts he's been given and the influence he holds and pointed them towards a full menu of things that are truly too long to mention in an intro however a couple to throw out there would be the creation of a world class elementary school and a family foundation. He's part owner will of one of the world's most famous soccer teams. What and he has starred in five films. He's married to his high school sweetheart. He has three kids. He was recruited to play football by notre dame but instead this fool took a gamble on basketball where he just can't seem to find any success guys. Please meet mr. Lebron james did i have you full jason. That's pretty good. You've never been introduced like this before right. People go on about is a good one. Oh my god but truly let me tell you something. Lebron going through and i don't do a lot of research as the guys will attest my will go to a wikipedia page though your page is more of a book and i just i just hit f. It real quick. I didn't know where to begin with so much stuff. But truly this stuff about philanthropy and family and all that stuff. We're going to get into. Because i think everyone else knows the other stuff but men go ahead. Will you got something to say. First of all. I was going to say i just took off. I was wearing a lakers. T shirt this is crazy. I just took it off. Because i worked out. And you don't wanna get into my workout routine lebron. Because he'd love to the shoulders you know they don't quit. I mean i've tried to feel natural. Yeah but what about what about the liverpool element. That was a real shocker to me. That's not a smart guy but we'll did you know that wills a huge soccer fan the bright read that i'm a big liverpool big liverpool supporter. And i have been for a number of years in friendly with a bunch. But i had read that you were part owner which is so crazy. Because i'm like another thing. That lebron i have in common. Oh yeah shoulder is soccer to shoulder four. Two sodas and liverpool brian. I have to say this is. This is especially exciting for me. Because i know who you are. Yeah we we've had a few athletes on the show. And sean just goes starts playing candy crush and we pick it up After the the guest goes away thrilling. I i can't believe You're here. This is so exciting. I have so many things. I want to say to ask that. I just thought about one of the things is. You're such an incredible jason's right. You are a force and you've been such an incredible you're so iconic already which is which is crazy because you're you're still relatively young man A lot younger than we are. We can his dad. We could be established. You've done you've done so much and it's and it's so impressive to watch you do it and you do it with such. There's a grace about you. The part of the problem. I think about being on top and i wouldn't know but part of the problem is that you are subjected to a lot of you know slings and arrows you know from from people from all sides not the least of which is i think every year since you got drafted people are like. Who's the greatest of all time is like they have. There's a coal every six hours. Espn will put it on their page. Like and who is lebron greater than michael. Jordan's like guys he's lebron. he's his own person that that shit must get exhausting. Be honest it must be exhausting. Can't can't be exhausted. We i mean you said it but You know i've always looked at it like anytime you compared or you even mentioned what the grates that ever played his game. It's become humbling for me. 'cause you know the same people. They put me in a category with or saying compared as compared to that guy or the same guys that i looked up to for inspiration when i was growing up and i needed to in growing up in the inner city here in akron. Ohio so You know to have the michael jordan's and to have the kobe. Bryant's to have ken griffey. Juniors and dion sanders autos unbelievable sports figures. You know when when i needed it you know they helped me so it's like wow you guys are preparing me. These greatest players that i've ever seen when i was growing up as such humbling man. Yeah the stats will certainly put you in that category without even trying. but what. You've what you've done off the court the stuff you don't need to do but you find yourself drawn to do. And as a result of your success on the court has given you access to do in the capital to do. I find really really admirable I'm envious of it There's a there's a drive though that that has to fuel that because you're tired i'll bet doing the stuff that is your day job. How do you find jason starred tired for you. I'm sure you have a great infrastructure of people that can identify some charitable endeavors. That are worthy of your time and the attention that you can put on them I'm sure you rely on them a bit. But a lot of that's got to be your own self drive and to motivate those people to be diligent in how they assess certain charitable organizations and whatnot. Where does that drive. Come from.

"The society can't take those things away because those were on the input end. See saying we used to think we used to believe in this input end the inalienable natural rights. He says but now there's something else has taken its place. I'm going to back up like one sentence. Stop doing this for one. Step back thing. I'll try. But i just want this to be real clear at the beginning. He says they have all been equipped with this framework early on in its the modern replacement for the inalienable natural rights that used to be the traditional american grounds for a free society that it is a moral issue. Now we're coming to the moderate. Listen remember he said it was important right. He said this is a moral postulate. It's not just. It's not just an insight. It's a postulate and it's not just that it's a posture. It's moral postulate. Okay that it is a moral issue. He says for students is revealed by the character of their response when challenged. It's a combination of disbelief. And indignation are are you absolutist. The only alternative they know uttered in the same tone as what are your monarchist. You believe in witches this ladder leads into indignation. He says for someone who believes in witches might. Well be a witch hunter or a salem judge. That's where indignation stems from right. He says the danger they've been taught to fear from here please. I don't want to pass. we're getting. I told you i'm not gonna read much you got. This has to go when this happens. It has to go shing. So just i'm working for. I'm working for something here. The danger they have been taught to fear from. Absolutism is not error but intolerance remember earlier. We talked about the chinese government's response to der tweet in the weird conflation that they make between appropriateness and factual erroneous nece. So what's false. Now is what's intolerant and the things that we should be tolerant of are determined by these masters who have told us that was falls as intolerant right. See the complete conflation of truth. Some other pragmatic practical prudential relevant relativistic consideration appropriateness. As determined by whatever gone is the notion of truth. But again i'm not doing. I'm not doing the standard stick here about who was saying that truth is relative is contrary. It is a contradiction side to make that voice. That's true that's perfectly valid point. But that's not what i'm doing here. This is not the master argument. Okay i want you to listen to the diagnosis here and what it helps us understand about what we've seen in the crazy ward. Call lebron james that it is a moral issue for students as revealed by the character of the response when challenged a combination of disbelief and indignation. What are you an absolutist. The only alternative they know uttered in the same tone as what you monarchist or do you believe in witches. This ladder leads into indignation for someone who believes in which might well be a witch hunter or salem judge the danger. They've been taught to fear from. Absolutism is not error but intolerance thus relativism is necessary to win this. The danger they've been taught to fear from. Absolutism is not error but intolerance relativism is necessary to openness. And this is the virtue. The only virtue with all primary for more than fifty years has dedicated itself to inculcating openness. This is my belief right. See how how lebron he wants to make all encompassing claims. He wants to make objective claims right but then we pressed that he says it was just my opinion district. Right.

"Vacations with you to players league. I mean that's not. That's not for me to understand for me to worry about a thing we got there. it is. How worried are you about future ramifications for the players or the league lebron. He going to step out and answer that. No he's gonna say that's not for me to worry about. I'm just a lowly basketball player. Here now see how. The pendulum swung again. Daryl morey is dangerously ignorant again but if he's ignorant than there's some fact he's ignorant of and if there's some fact that he's ignorant of you could just say what that fact is. You could dispel the mystery instead of just taking potshots. It doesn't do that. Deer more is dangerously ignorant and uneducated. But i don't know anything either. It's not my place to say it's like what doesn't make any sense. This back and forth this incoherent back and forth between objective castigation and judgment and subjective demurring and reservation of. What is this. I'm going to explain this to you in a minute. Okay that's again. Why i'm calling this the miseducation of lebron james. Just bear with it because the interviews almost over. But he's doing it again and you're going to see him do it again before the interview ends have a hierarchy We have a higher. The higher who figure that out think But at the end of us know we an unknown days.
"lebron james" Discussed on BallCourt - The World of Basketball with Coach Drew
"Yes. Is Another episode of Ball Court and be around and gathering. We talk about basketball. We it leads us to think about one question that has been nagging people for the last seventeen years is Lebron. The best ever see this question comes up right now especially since he's the precipice of probably get ten. NBA. Championship, not to mention he's doing in year seventeen playing at a phenomenal rate. We have to go ahead and question is Lebron James. Best ever is arguably right now some pundits are saying that he is. Neck and neck with Katie but others are saying that you has on the best to ever play the game. The fact that matter is the Iq of Lebron James for hours I q most basketball players are play this game today and I'm talking professional and otherwise. Sometimes you can go as far as to say that he's actually ahead of most coaches when you think about what he's doing and how he's doing it see Lebron James is from a different time and a different era of thinking his era of thinking that he's GonNa actually utilize every single detail in the game to take advantage of the game and put it into perspective. Think about this Higl, the story that Demain Rosen spoke of this week right here not on this show, but he's spoken with this week. You know he stated that Dick Doran a game, actually a playoff game against. The. cavs, Raptors. He actually. Forgot their. Play. Right there may actually forgot the play Lebron James was able to go ahead and explain to play detail to play and tell him what was going on and he was actually playing on the opposite team. So think about. The huddled look at your plate and tell you what your coach has selected for you how to run the play where your man is supposed to be how supposed to be did. Not. To Mention Daikin that you've seen him displaying interviews when the acts of what went wrong and he was able to break it down nine plays to the end of the game of what took place on each play each possession each pass to go ahead and detail exactly. What took place because you say the best I q ever. Possibly could you say that he is the most coach ready player to ever play the game? Definitely but the thing that still remains is everybody's talking about who is the best players ever played the game and could it be Lebron James. Now as Tom Missing former Detroit listen, and arguably one of the best point seven play. I say arguably, because if anybody tries to argue with me, I will argue with you on that Point Isaiah? Thomas is one of the elite point guards game or was one of the elite point guards in the game as and I still think that what he is done on one ankle is better and So. We're not going to go ahead and discuss that, but he has actually had experience playing against. Michael Jordan now don't get me wrong. I noted some a lot of people will say that there's a lot of hate that comes from Isaiah Thomas About Michael Jordan in itself, and probably the reason why he's making these statements. But really, let's go ahead and take a look dance illustrated a lot of key points that was Kinda. If you mean not taking anything away from Michael Jordan, I'm telling you one of my heroes growing up he was one of the people that I hate that I love to hate the most I grew up a nickname. That is the only reason why between Reggie I didn't know why anymore but I respected both their games. So I'm not saying anything bad against Michael Jordan. But what I am saying is Lebron James You have to admit that what he is doug throughout his career has not been. As not actually been mirrored by anybody else. Of course, he didn't win extremely Michael Jordan. You know he went this excise one six times, but also he didn't have to carry Michael Jordan didn't have to carry the weight. The Lebron James had to carry when you sit down and think about it. Lebron Lebron James had to come out and perform day won. His first game is that game was a flop es scored fifteen points. In that first game, they would've turned around and said that he was nothing he was nothing that he said he was he is not the Chosen One and that was off from his first game. Remember Michael Jordan detailed in the last dance. He went seven years in the league seven year. In, the League without lifting weights. Lebron James in have their option and be critic telling them what he's doing. Wrong. They will speak about it for hours in length these talking heads just like myself. We were sitting there and talk about what he's doing wrong and then he'll come back the following season and correct it. He was always improving. The was never a pass. It was never saying, Hey, you know what? Lebron? We understand. You're just a kid there was never that. So it is I think that he's done everything up to this point to prove that if he is not the greatest player to ever play the game, he has greatest. IQ. of every place ever who's ever laced them up. That's just my opinion. Now with that said, that leads me into armed thought process going forward now is this championship going to be the defining moment of the Kingdom is a King Court. Going to change to the championship. Let me go ahead and break you down just in case anybody wasn't watching. Game, five of the Lakers verse was instinct classic and I tell you instinct classic because it was actually six lead changes in the last few minutes it went back and forth they fought that game that game was a truly great for game. His his couple takeaways that I had from net game take number one you cannot leave. Dunkin Robinson Open I know that he has not been doing great during the season. Series in itself, but you cannot leave donkey Robinson. Open here's the shooter shooters are known to get hot whilst they get hot, you can't cool off. So you've got to keep a hand his face, keep at him one of all the three point line, get him out of his rhythm this where he can't get hot. That's that's going to be the key. Second of all. This was the most important part I know there was a lot of mistakes that took place twenty game. There was a lot of Ariza took place on both sides of the ball and for both teams not to mention the amidst calls took place with the referees referees are. Just. Like there was a lot of miscues with the Lakers live also going to be a lot of missteps referees and it's going to be mistakes made by the heat as well. But the thing is, how do you capitalize off those mistakes and how do you minimize those mistakes? Now, the heat a very good job of capitalizing offer the mistakes that were made down the stretch. One of the keenest states first off. May I say this Danny. Green. Twenty at twenty, nine percent during this war an absolute threat San Antonio, he was an absolute threat in Toronto right now. You're not a threat, your liability in this game, and the reason being that shot that you had was wide open closes play. He was seven feet away. This was no.

"The iheartradio APP Walbrook when he left the University of Washington held twenty of the schools records. Great College quarterback six years in the NFL now a very successful talk show host in Seattle College football analyst for us doing our Fox sports stuff brought. You're joining me via the coward. Global Satellite Network so many NFL and college issues to talk about You know it's interesting. Brock College football is always felt a little regional to me. The south views it differently as the west the passions greater and. I look at the SEC. And I think brock they're just gonNA have a season and they don't even care what anybody else is doing and in the PAC twelve. I think it's largely up to what the governor of California allows for large gatherings. Do you feel optimistic today. Going forward. We'll have a season west. Maybe maybe not quite so much down South yes down South. They like to say does a one legged ducks swimming in a circle. I learned that from my buddy deems may who played in North Carolina and yes that one leg duck swims in circle and the SEC. I think will play. They're moving forward. Heck they're voting to to get their kids back on campus either June first or June fifteenth call. And so I am curious though your guy like me. The grew up in the North West was always this regional. Because when I played twenty some years ago I never thought of it nearly as regional. Yeah there was the blue bloods. There was Notre Dame and Michigan Ohio State. Sc or they're always blue bloods but it just didn't feel as regional as a player twenty twenty five years ago as it does now can't disagree with you. It is so regionalized so passionate down south and the West Coast is certainly chasing that passion. Well I think a Lotta that brock is actually the infiltration of professional sports to the northwest. I grew up in the seventies it was basically the Husky football. And then you get the mariners then you get the seahawks then you get the sonics or in in no particular order then you get the mls in Los Angeles to NFL teams. We didn't have any any five years ago. We have new soccer teams. We have The clippers the Lakers are both great. So I I do think pro sports out. West is really formidable as a distraction for college sports. That's part of it now. I want to ask you when when you look at the practice time that would be needed. Go back to the Washington days in maybe in the NFL. Less or more maybe in college it's less or more having played in both college football. How many weeks do you need? Nfl football how many weeks a practice do you need? That's a good question because they're very different. Colin physically is a young guy. Eighteen to twenty two year absolute prime. I mean if you get to work in that off season and that summer program and these guys are so much more advanced. I was just out in the field up here in the northwest and saw some college kids working out was reminded what it's like to be in that kind of shape and run forever and and so. I think from a fitness strength training standpoint in. It's much more year round in college even even more so now than it was twenty years ago. I don't think calling. It takes more than two or three weeks physically to get themselves ready to go the NFL's different right the NFL. You're taking care of bodies but it's so much more mental. The schemes are so much more diverse young players coming into these advanced schemes. Have such a harder time. So it's almost the inverse. I think it's easier physically much easier in college to get yourself ready to go in the. Nfl does that mental side. Where these rookies are missing out so much and I are going to be so far behind win. Ever and how much overtime they do end up getting a camp. I'm a huge fan of Russell Wilson. I think I'm a fan of any athlete that I think is underappreciated. Last three years he has the most touchdown passes in the NFL by fifteen brady a second yet today wants reportedly his. He wants to Russell Wilson Contract and I don't think Seattle runs a sophisticated offense. I frankly don't I think I think Russell Wilson should have much more say in the offense. Why do you think he is underappreciated? Sometimes it feels like this two weeks ago there was a Cam Newton rumor. He feels underappreciated. Sometimes in his own building. Because you're still five ten and five eighths. You're still a third round pick. I mean that those labels for some reason stick a lot longer and have stuck a lot longer russell than than you're right than his resume ever speaks to call them. We've had you on our radio show for years and years and years screaming and I can remember that we played your clips way back. When when you're like this guy is a star arm? A athleticism a toughness a winner. A He's off the charts right in all of those things and in man. Did he ever have to fight for year after year after year after year in his own locker room? First and foremost and I think that's a part of a Colin. I think the first half dozen years of his career he had to fight the Richard Sherman's and the Doug Baldwin people in that in that locker room right. You're talking about nationally getting the credit these do how about in his own building really wasn't until this year when Doug moved out and richards out marshawn while he came back at the end but it was his team. I mean clearly his team and he had the greatest year of his career. He was phenomenal one of the best players in the NFL. I think that's part of it. When you gotTa Win over Your Locker Room Right. I mean Tom Brady did that. You're one with the backpack. Once he started winning like sorry drew. I love you but this is my team and it was while look at Tom. He's he's great. Everybody loves him. He didn't have to win over that locker. Room for six plus years as Russell has gone. I think that's an important part of the narrative in wise always felt like you said the climate appeal battle. I'm a believer. That Bella check wanted Brady back this year and they were surprised when he left and yet a couple years ago when Brady was younger and to me a little bit more dynamic come off a great super bowl performance against Atlanta Bella. Check was ready to bail on him for. Garoppolo now couple years later. Tom's not quite as dynamic dynamic coming off a marginal by Tom. Standards Season and Belichick wanted him back. That tells me the Jarret. Stidham isn't as great as all the reports. I keep hearing. I saw him in college. I thought he was okay. You saw him in college. I mean everybody keeps telling me Jarrett Stidham this that. What is he and how good he well. He's good right going back to that report card that we just used and looked Russell and you and I could evaluate early on at this guy was a star in the making jared systems arm be athleticism be size be toughness. I think he's a tough. I think he's a tough guy and he's had move around. And he's got some grits at some determination but one concern. I always have fair or unfair biased or not is just a sense of urgency out of some of those southern quarterbacks and is there just that sense of urgency. Like I'm GonNa take this thing over. This is my team. It's it's now or never. There's just a real laid back nature at times down there in the south with some of their quarterbacks over the years now he has the one head coach that will light that urgency flame every single day. Every practice did with Tom for two decades certainly is cranked. It up on Jarrett in must feel like he's got that that toughness but I would agree with you as far as the raw goods go. I don't think even comparing him to Jimmy Garoppolo in all of those areas arm athleticism size. I don't think he checks as many boxes Jimmy Das. Yeah finally I. You grew up with a lot of brothers. In a family in your. You may not have a massive physical bill very very tall. But you're a tough guy because you're a football guy and I think Damon your brother was actually also a very good basketball player. I'm not sure if you were. But he was a very good basketball player. You come from a family of boys and banging into each other and tackling in the backyard and I think that's a huge component to football. Just don't look at guys weight height. Do you have the mentality to hit and to be hit into block to be blocked? Big tough guys often. Don't so there's a story out that Lebron James Dallas cowboys wanted it and I think wait time timeout. I Watch Lebron James. He'd rather shoot a twenty eight footer. Then attack Roy Hibbert six years ago in the NBA. That Lebron's big and strong. But I don't think he understands. I don't think he would have been a football player on the NFL. I don't think that's his makeup. Your thought everybody just assumes six nine runs well NFL player. Did you ever play with guys? Who had the looked the part but just didn't want to get hit. Yeah lots of you know. You're talking about growing up man. We broke doorframes member those old NERF hoop hoops doorframes. We broke those hoops. We broke the door frames this nights that will scar here. Forty stitches running into another dude on a basketball court split my chin broken nose. You're right I mean you just kind of rough and tumble and and mom. Grandma peg would be screaming. Stop playing football and you're gonNA break lamps and couches and all that yeah. I do think that there is something to now by no means if any of my former teammates watching. They're all going your quarterback. What do you know about getting hit? But you know that physicality I think the other challenge is where would Lebron play like you watch Allen Iverson and his old high school tape? You're like that's Sean Jackson. Talking off the air about Dwayne Wade yet. That's really nice size for wide receiver. Where would Lebron play at six foot? Eight to sixty five tight ends. Maybe flex him out as a tied in. Maybe maybe but yeah. I wouldn't sign off on that and say that's for sure he'll at that joy. Our theory on this is right if you grow up with a bunch of brothers your brake lamps and break your forehead. That's why you've never been in a fight fight. Yeah joys been in a bunch of fights and I'm I'm a pacifist. Yeah Lebron like you to say that to him and say you know you're just run from people. Well he's telling me that force would feel like brought cured. I love having you as a teammate. Good talking to you buddy. Thanks calling always alright. Well he's he's really good he is. He's one of those athletes turned broadcasters. Slick you listen to him on a broadcast like a play by play analyst job which is the toughest job in American sports casting football analyst three hundred times in three hours say something smart Eight seconds. I can just talk and all liberal. They don't have to ever stop except for her line. News Brock really good teaching about football. All the time is really good. That is the hardest job. It's Joe. Buck is great as he is. He can follow the action. Troy Aikman's got wait for joy to briefly. Joe To briefly stop and then troy has to be brilliant in eight seconds and then asked to stop talking because the play starting the football analyst guy and football every play manner so you can't just talk overplays you have to stop talking for the other guy to go it. It's hard that's why play by play. Color Tandems are so important to get him. Great Chemistry Really Great Chemistry. All right joy Taylor with the news on the news. This is the headline news right. Horace grant is firing back at claims Michael.

"They have places to take the kids to go. Hang out all day and you can relax so it's really. It's good for families if you know if that's how you you need to travel. I've been on a few. They're fun. I like a little two day trip. I can't do you know week or ten days or two weeks in a room with no windows off. I feel very bad for for ideal. I do to really when you're on a cruise ship. Generally the quarters are not where you spend any of your time like you literally. Just GO SLEEP. Their shower change that. You're not spending any time in your room if you're going on vacation where you want a nice room. You're probably not going on a cruise ship so to be stuck in that room all day. Yeah we're thinking of you guys. We're calling that does not Colin. No last we heard from Colin. There was a there was a tweet from a hot TUB in Utah with three people. Should I hop in Hot Tub was cau- caused a big stir? I did not see the hot TUB tweet. There was the hot tub. I'M GONNA check. Maybe he was in the hot tub time machine collins going to pop up after going in the hot tub time. That's what is what we'll see. Call tomorrow here in in in her joy Taylor alongside look the weekend though were in March and it technically should be getting ready for the Ncaa Tournament Championship Week. Here on Fox sports one you watch the Big East which is three way tie for the championship. It's going to be unbelievable weekend in college basketball. Get ready for the tournament. I do think the Vegas thing is going to be fascinating right like next week from Thursday and Friday is like huge guy. Day In Vegas and you talk about America's Petri dish between the dice. The money the cards. Wash your hands and bring a small thing of hand sanitizer with you wherever you go. But you can't get that you don't hardly get a hand sanitizer. I must have all the hand sanitizer. I have lots of hand sanitizers hand sanitizers because I've been using hand sanitizer before all this started you've been using hand sanitizer your old school Hanson. Well Yeah because I travel a lot so I think that helps you. Every time I go eat anywhere. That's not my house even at my house. Actually I always wash my hands before I eat and so I always have hand sanitizer on me. Also when you go to the restroom do use hand sanitizer after opening the restroom door to go back out or did you do. The you have paper towels on my hand. Yes yes I agree with the paper towel sentiment. I just think it's interesting. That how often people wash their hands and they go in and grab the door yet. Defeat the purpose. So when you're in Vegas guys just do that. And that's it you're good. I'm not a doctor. But the number one thing everyone wash your hands lost your. Don't wash their English. I just imagine people with their surgical gloves going in and playing blackjack made while looking at this point they won't won't judge you at all so over the weekend. The Lakers took down the bucks. The Lakers took down the clippers. Suddenly Lebron James has been thrust into the MVP conversation and the Lakers are the best team in the NBA. Dammit but let's just take a breath and as much as there is needed excitement. I'd Lakers powerful brand. They have all those banners they have all those jerseys put the way it actually works. Is They don't award championships in the regular season. I know I know I know you may think otherwise I would say maybe the most. The party gives you the most hope. If you're the Lakers is a Laker fan is not just. The two wins over two championship. Caliber teams is that Lebron James athletically looked as close to his peak at thirty five as he's looked all season long in the second game as well as the first right like you can load up for one game and look great but after a day off and then he went. I think is suns game on the night off. The Sierra Canyon played think at Pepperdine he goes that game and then after the day off you go and play in a noon game twelve thirty local star time. You take on the clippers so you don't have forty eight hours even arrest. You got thirty or so hours of rest to then look that fresh that athletic and perform that well down the stretch at his age shows. This guy is remarkable in his level of physical conditioning. At this point in time and maybe any point in time in his career but we don't award championships for the NBA in March College Championships. The championship isn't until April. So I just as much as you gotta feel good. If you're the Lakers at some of the changes they've made the adjustment. They made at the half. Look they beat Milwaukee and they beat the clippers mostly because the third quarter that is on coaching. That is on adjustment says on lineup adjustments and whatever said and however they came out and attacked they were better after the half in almost golden state warriors type of way right. That's where the warriors one game. Since the third quarter they would blow your doors off and the Lakers inbal your doors off but in two competitive games they open it up and I think you can feel really really good about your chances. And that's before you get dion waiters. Who Will Give you another couple of buckets? You think off the bench ultimately when you get to the playoffs and he does have playoff experience. All that is good but you do have an older roster you do have one of your stars. Anthony Davis is seen as a bit injury. Prone Cow Kouzmin has not yet figured it out. You did get. I'm was it six threes from avery. Bradley I don't know if you can count on that in every playoff game you definitely can't count on six. How many can you count on? Considering the first half of the season he struggled mightily shooting. The basketball and the clippers did miss shots and while the pushed around the bucks and the bucks looked like a one man band just surrounded by shoes which is kind of what they are and you look like he had one all star and a bunch of other guys who kind of fed the ball to that one all star and the Lakers seen to figure out how to do a good job on Janas much the way that much the way the Miami Heat had right like the word is out on how you play them you gotta get as many likes is bodies and be as physical with as possible guests on those spin moves. That's what they've done and once he gets his head down then you can collapse. He struggles to kick it out when he gets to certain spots on the floor. Like all of that is great. But we didn't freak out when the bucks manhandled the Lakers first time around. Because we said well Lakers fourteen day road trip. They're we shouldn't be freaked out when the clippers beat the Lakers the two previous times season. Hey It's day one. Hey Lakers got nine new guys if we're going to be fair if we're GONNA have congruent arguments. If an argument is good for the Lakers the argument you get to the bucks. The argument should be good for the clippers. If we're GONNA have congruent arguments knows that this is a that was a battle. This is war. Sometimes you'RE GONNA lose battles and wars this is. We are far away from the marathon concluding as much as we would like the end of the movie to be the end of the movie. It's not we're simply in the middle and the plot has been developed. And we know when it's going to reach a crescendo. We assume it's going to be the Lakers against the clippers the Western Conference Finals. And we assume that the bucks are. GonNa be waiting in the Eastern Conference finals. But we have no idea who's GONNA be healthy. We have no idea who who is in between the Lakers and the clippers or who is between the Bucks and the Eastern Conference finals and all of these teams are fallible. And if they lose one of their starters it it does have a certain house of cards effect especially with older team like the Lakers. We quoted Danny Green on Friday about the rockets being who they thought they were. They are who we thought they were. Danny Green went on to save. You WanNA crown him crown. If you WANNA cram the Lakers fine cowboys. Mccann Crown Lebron James as the king when he walks over to the sideline after reigning supreme into epic regular season showdowns but they don't award championships based upon two games in March in the regular season in the NBA. Things are looking better for the Lakers. They are looking more competitive. They are figuring it out and Lebron still feels like he has enough in the tank to carry this team but a lot of ball game left a lot of ball game coming up next the majority of fans and media think Tom Brady has already gone from New England. But there's an important.

"Lebron James middle of the third quarter had a tweet, and it was man where Shams Woche Hanes mcmanamon. Those are NBA reporters he was looking for something interest. Like an NBA story because you know, the NFL super was boring and I wanted to tweet back. Were you in the finals that was a sweep wasn't the World Series? A total mismatch Red Sox. One in five was in the college football national championship game decided by thirty points. The Rams and the patriots were tied at three with a minute sixteen to go or something. I mean, how much time would he goes three to three in the fourth quarter? Yeah. Those are early fourth. It was three I it was a one possession game late. There was no fumbles. At least none recovered. There were not allowed to drop passes only twelve penalties. New England only had three defense was blowing stuff up. Listen the Super Bowl is where my wife watches. It's where fringe fans watch. And they come in anything. They're going to get this wild showcase most Super Bowls. In fact, there was a period in the eighties. We went through about a ten year period where eight of them were atrocious. Like Dallas would beat buffalo by forty yesterday. We had a Thai football game in the fourth quarter. Okay. With that. Now, it wasn't the most artistic, but I mean, it's this like it wasn't a headline SuperBowl last year was full of headlines. This was not a headline Super Bowl. But it was close, and it was competitive the World Series was unwatchable, and it was a blow out. It was a mismatch. I mean it what the NBA finals after game. One the remaining three games were unwatchable. College football national championship was a blowout. Uconn women's basketball that dynasties mostly been blowouts. We had a tie game in the fourth quarter. And you know, it's just like like most millionaires in America are not tech millionaires. Most of them have paid off their house. It's a husband and wife that both work, and they have both healthy 4._0._1._K's, but that doesn't make headlines but that seventy five percent of American millionaires. They've paid off their house they paid off their cars, and they both have a 4._0._1._K and they're millionaires. They have about a million and a half net worth. They're not working, you know, Facebook. They're not like Twenty-seven-year-old, Elon Musk genius level dudes. That's not really that gets the headline. So I looked at yesterday. And I think defense wins a lot more than we think in sports pitching in baseball wins championships. Homerun hitters do not win World Series. Who? Wins World Series of the Red Sox and their pitching the year before the Astros and they're pitching pitching his defense. Michael Jordan's bulls were not the most gifted offensive team. Michael Jordan's bulls were the greatest defensive team I've ever seen both of our college football dynasties are based on defense. So do you know every single Super Bowl? New England has won all six of them. Their defense has been ranked. No lower than eighth New England wins these Super Bowls when they come into a Super Bowl and they're efficient offensively. They always are. But they're very good defensively. Which when they win Deo is are so I think the defense I've said a couple of things about Brady's legacy. He's almost always had good offensive line's, Dan. Marino didn't John Elway. Didn't Brady's always had good offensive lines. But those don't make headlines and the second thing their defense is always better than we give him..

"You that your talented or great. Easy to be humble. Nah. Really? No big deal. I whatever if people come up and tell us for not great we get defensive. That's very human. When people come up and tell you of your talent you get humble. When people tell you of your deficiencies, you get defensive. So there's this thing out there right now. Michael Jordan, LeBron who's the greatest now LeBron James has his own TV show and on his television show recently LeBron made this acknowledgement, let's roll the tape. That made me the greatest player of all time. No, everybody was just how they were greatest team of all time. Like there was a greatest team ever assembled for us to come back. You know, the way we came back in fashion. I was like you did you did some special. Okay, now after that the Michael Jordan fan boys came out, Michael Jordan would never say that by the way. That's exactly what Michael Jordan says privately for years, but he was better than Barkley better than magic better than bird better than west better than well better than Kurram, but publicly people dug up a two thousand nine interview with Michael wilpon and talented, Michael wilbon, and Michael Jordan where Jordan said, well, if you ask me I'd never say, I'm the greatest player. That's because I never play it against all those other people that represented the league prior to Michael Jordan. Well, what are you know, in two thousand nine when Michael said that he could be humble there was no great debate. He had been elevated by all the media all the fans, he was the greatest he spoke from a different place on shocks. I'm not the best. Of course, he was telling everybody he was the best. He was so petty. He wouldn't let Isaiah Thomas on an Olympic team. You saw hall of fame speech, but in two thousand nine different place because when any of us are told granted acknowledges, the greatest, and then it said to our face all gosh. Shucks. I'm not the greatest though, Michael was telling everybody, privately it wasn't close. The Bron James in two thousand eighteen comes from an entirely different place despite his success despite blowing past his contemporaries, despite even the second best player. Kevin durant? Not having nearly the impact around the league of LeBron despite being close to a billionaire despite statistically an analytically being the best player ever. And it's not arguable. He's told these not the greatest. College has shows that LeBron is insecure. No, it shows that LeBron and Michael made these comments from a completely different place in that. We're all human. You. Don't think Michael's insecure about LeBron really? That's funny because I looked up this morning. The three players that Michael has most complimented. Westbrook. He says Westbrook's the closest thing to me the quotas. He's amazing. Really, you think Westbrook's was strict LeBron. He's also quoted as saying recently, quiet. Leonard is the best two way player in the NBA. He's also multiple times complementing Kobe Bryant who by the way grew up idolizing and acknowledging idolize, Michael Jordan, so Koby Westbrook and coli Michael is a few sieve with this praise. He has complemented LeBron once when Donald Trump took a shot at him, and it wasn't really a compliment. He just took team LeBron site. You don't think Michael Jordan, keep score? You didn't hear the hall of fame speech wouldn't let Isaiah on the Olympic team. You don't think Michael Jordan? Keep score. Complements westbrook. Colli Kobe never compliments LeBron by the way, remember years ago that deflate gate thing with Brady. And and we always thought we always heard from manning. I love Tom, and Tom I love manning. I mean, they obviously played each other. But all you heard is they were so close they liked each other..
