"To sports and politics now. And that's LeBron James LeBron James Green from ESPN, LeBron James on Friday dismissed his Latin Aimer Ibrahimovic is Criticism this social activism. And said the A C Milan stars comments were hypocritical and this is a soccer star Ibrahimovic. Used to play for the L. A galaxy. At the time when LeBron James was in his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers. Um in the soccer player criticized James on Thursday in an interview with Discovery Plus and Sweden, saying it was a mistake and doesn't look good. When James and other famous people get involved in politics. He was the same guy who said This is James response. He was the same guy who said When he was back in Sweden, because his last name wasn't a certain last name that he felt there was some racism going on. When he was out out on the pitch, James said. I speak very Educated mind speak from a very educated mind. So I'm kind of the wrong guy I'd actually go to because I do my homework. May see this soccer players saying, like, Look, stick to sports get out of politics. They were My take on this is like I just Yeah. I mean, I I understand the I understand the point people make on sports. It's like Hey, look. You know, sports and entertainers, singers. Mm hmm. There's some people to get upset about the fact when they weigh in the politics or whatever, but look, because people come to they watch a game to get away from politics or to get away from what's going on in Washington. They, You know, go to a concert because they want to get away from it. It's like this folks are human, too. Like they there's more of their lives and just shooting a basketball or, you know, singing into a microphone. And so I don't I never get too worked up about that stuff.

"Milwaukee leading the Clippers 53 48 minute Interesting first half what's had a big lead by nine on a 12? Nothing running. It's five point game at the break yesterday had a conversation with ESPN NBA insider A general Djurovski among the topics we talked about not only the second half schedule, but also the fact that Kyrie Irving wants Kobe Bryant to become the new logo of the NBA, and he asked voters to gaining any traction around the league. You know, I think things like that. Don't change easily. Um, they shouldn't change easily right? I mean, it's some of those things I mean, are going to be. I guess it's an interesting Idea. Um You know, the next argument might be well. Shouldn't be Michael Jordan would be Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Shouldn't be LeBron James should be Kobe Bryant. Or should it stay? Jerry West? I I think, um I don't know that it's going to spur the league, too. Moved toward anything or start a conversation on it. But it's his opinion. It's a valid Opinion. It's legitimate, right? And so, but I don't know that I've got. I haven't got any sense that all of the sudden the league is mobilizing on the idea, which is much of a pain as it was waiting for the MBA second half scheduled to come out of particularly those who do schedules and stuff like that. I found it. Absolutely awesome because For the broadcast partners. You get to do national television games and you get a different you get different matchups. Then we would have had on a full season schedule. You get to see who's who. Do you think the second half scheduled split will be something going forward? It's certainly an interesting idea. I don't know. If it's going to be something going forward, But I do think the ability to have some versatility in the national TV package me think you know when you did the TV when you did the schedule for the first half. Russell Westbrook and James Harden were together. In Houston. When you figured out that schedule now you'd be left after want Houston on his part of your national package, And so on. Then the Knicks become a team that I think is what six national games in the second half. You might not have thought that before the season on. Certainly the Nets have become with heart and a team that's a must watch team. And so it does. It does lend itself to having some Some options. The league desperately. I think that's him. It's important for the league. It's important for TV. There's no question I think one thing you will see moving forward in the schedules of these two game. Home stands or two game road trips into a city where you play a couple games back to back that's cut down on travel, and teams have really liked it. I bet you see that in the future even once we get fans back in buildings and we get out of a pandemic. Being inside of a general Drabowsky up Next buddy.

Yesterday on NBA Countdown. I spoke with ESPN MBG inside of a General Djurovski who's been all over the staffing issues, the protocols and the selection process for this All Star game, and I asked coach What was the feeling in the attitude around the league as this All Star game approaches, now one week from today? I think it various Kevin. I think there's a certain level of player that has been accustomed to being in the All Star Game. The perennial All Star Well, I think it's far less enthusiastic about it. You heard You know LeBron James and yeah, Tennekoon called Paul George. Some others, and I think there's other players who, you know there's still the newness of being an all star and younger, all stars that are pretty jacked about it. And so I think once you guys get there, they're all Real competitive and they get their you know, last year's game in Chicago. You think about just With the new format. They had just how the it really elevated the intensity of that game. That fourth quarter was ferocious. Most of the game was and so What remains to be seen if it feels like that this time. Certainly the crowd plays a factor in that, Although these guys they're used to playing now without fans, but I think Um You know, guys, we're going to get in and get out in about 24 hours. But I think there's no question I think, especially among The elite of the league. I think the enthusiasm is muted. I think that's very sad.

Sportswriter Zach Lowe on NBA Mid-Season Leaders

"Where. We are at the midway point of the nba season. And that means. I have questions for you about the utah jazz. I say the utah jazz to you. Right now what comes to mind a whole lot of threes there making these every time you know checkup jazz box score at my brain just glances over twenty two thousand from three leg. It's just nothing there number two in defense in number three or something in offense. They do profile as championship contender. Like they're the best team in the league by record right now. Are they the best team in the league to you. While the comparison that that's become sort of commonplaces they're they're the new sixty win hawks. The team that was built to win a lot of games regular season pretty ball movement side to side movement. You don't really have the star power to compete against lebron james when it comes down to it in the playoffs but i don't think they're just sort of blake a regular season flute so the way the jazz are playing right now. It reminds me not just of the hawks as you said but also a kind of mutant version of the houston rockets simply because of the sheer volume of threes. Does that comparison sounded all right and also does that comparison than invite the questions about what happens in the postseason. If shooting a bunch of threes doesn't go as well as it did in the regular season. That comparison does not ring true to me honestly just stylistically. They're so different. The volume of threes is similar. Like they are taking a houston. Daryl morey level volume of threes. But they play so differently. The other comparison is brad stevens. I think the first one to give voice to this is to two thousand fourteen spurs which is kind of like. That's that's i don't want to say that out loud well to an mba hipster fan to an emmy afficionados. Let's put it that way kinda sewer. What does that specific spurs team. What does that evoke in your memory. It almost has this sort of religion. Level reverend yes. Everybody loved watching that team. Anybody who was at games three to five of the finals that year when by the beginning of game four we were all looking at each other. Like all my god. They're just going to destroy the heat and to compare any team to where that team reached. It just feels like talking to a pitcher in the seventh inning of a no hitter. Something like you just don't want to say out loud but that is a comparison. People are making looked at jazz. Their undoing in the playoffs in in previous seasons was day would very much like the hawks. Actually day would get a lot of open threes and not make them and you could look at that and say well. We did everything right. We just didn't make shots. Which is what. Every hawks team including that one said after the playoffs. And so yeah. The three point volume is similar to the rockets. And that's a little scary. The team that this discussion has occurred in the context of is the lakers. As you said as it must be the defending champions and so when you look at the lakers right now. I want to get to lebron specifically in a second but just them without anthony davis and how much they've struggled most recently losing to these jazz and blow out. What is that revealing to you or confirming to you about what this team needs to actually content. I think like any team. They need their best players to be healthy. I i'm pretty low on the lakers panic meter because it's not just anthony. Davis who you know was first team all nba hill assures. Anthony davis is not like some borderline all the best players in the league. Dennis schreuder is maybe their third best player. I think kyle kuzma is kind of the claim that mantle disturbing might be their third most important player. Because he's the only other guy. With the exception of some frisky alex russo games entail. Norton tucker will get you some. You know some stuff done now and then but he's learned other on ball creator the other the other guys threat to score or pass to somebody else. Yeah you take them away and it's like oh my god. Lebron has to do everything and and you know he's probably getting a little tired and even though he'll never say it the only thing that will make my panic meter go above like three point. Five on a one to ten is if we get news. At davis's injury is lingering or more serious that we thought it was then if they're healthy in the playoffs yeah. Competition in the west is is probably better this year. Particularly if denver finds whatever gear they had going in the bubble. There's going to be a lot of really good teams in the west. You could get the one seed in the west and play the warriors. You could get to play the mad. I mean it's it's just every round is hard there. But yeah i i can't i can't get too worked up about it right now. Yeah the western conference meet

Los Angeles Lakers Scorched By Miami Heat

"Lakers do lose to the Miami Heat. Oh Alex Caruso had a chance to tie it up at the buzzer, but misses the shot was not an easy shot by came up just short gruesome misses and the Lakers do fall to the Miami Heat LeBron. James had a bit off of an off night and we have to remember of course Dennis Shooters still out and not going to miss two more games. They are really struggling to get offense going without him. And of course Anthony Davis out as well and he'll be out for at least the next four weeks or so, which will take him out all the way through a little bit past the old star breaks up the Lakers clearly struggling clearly undermanned and we got a lot to talk about because there's some rumors popping up about what the Lakers might do about it and some people that they dead Try to bring in so a lot to break down joining me tonight. We've got Chris the Masterpiece Masters Chris. How you doing, man? I'm okay disappointing disappointing loss. It was it was a weird game. I know we're going to get into all of it. But you know, there's the world we live in when you don't have off Anthony Davis and then to a compound things you don't have demonstrated or who plays a big role for our team. So 12 plus tonight. Yeah, let's get on here. I think that the schruder think really is it's a big deal. It really is. It's a big deal to not have him out there because of what he brings in terms of the skill set his ability to get into the paint his ability to run the offense. You can just see it when LeBron is not on the floor. I mean, you're you're you're hanging on the edge of the cliff and you're just praying that your drink it doesn't give out and you just tumble over the edge. That's what they're doing right now when LeBron's not on the floor, it's like it's like Frank Vogel is just constantly watching the clock one. Can I put it back in yet? Can I put them back in yet? Because any minute that LeBron is not on the floor the Lakers offense looks dead. Lately lost because they don't have anybody that can really be a threat off the dribble. They can get into the paint and do anything from there. And and so it's a bit of a mess. They're just trying to hold on for dear life reminds me a little of the Lakers bench Squad last year except right now. You don't have Anthony Davis to help claw you back into games either. So it's that's certainly a challenge and Dennis Schroder is going to miss two thousand more games. No, he did test negative for covid-19 will do to contact tracing he is out for two more games. So this is going to be a couple more games where the Lakers have to grind it out without some really key pieces here.

Los Angeles Lakers go in short-handed and fall to the Brooklyn Nets

"Lakers dropped the game to the Nets got blown out was not pretty wind up losing this one. It was 109 2098. Ouch out not good. We're going to break down exactly what happened and put a little bit of context into it. What does this mean for the Lakers moving forward now that you've lost this was a game that a lot of people look forward to a lot of people had this game marked on their calendars did the Lakers maybe not and there's a lot of different things for us to to get into here the team didn't play. Well, there's no question and we'll talk a little bit about that. But I think where we need to start is that the Lakers were down two starters and yes, it's fair to mention that the Nets were also Down Kevin Durant. That's a giant loss. The Lakers were down Anthony Davis age. A giant loss. They were also down Dennis Schroder and I thought that was a bigger loss than he would be on most nights because the Nets defense is so poor. I think schruder would have had a very good game tonight. Just living in the paint getting to the rim creating Havoc. He would have made a difference out there for the Lakers certainly, but unfortunately was not able to go do to contact tracing with all the cobit stuff going on. So, you know, that was that was definitely unfortunate. We certainly didn't get the kind of finals preview matchup that people have been thinking we would get from this game because you're missing those star players. I don't think we got a very good representation of who the Lakers are as a team. I also don't think we got a great representation of who the Nets are because they're so different with Kevin Durant, but we did find out that the Nets love to shoot lots and lots of threes and make a lot of them tonight. Let's finish the game shooting just 46% from 3, but that doesn't tell the whole story. They were 50% or better for almost the entire game. It was until the end that they dropped off doing a great job generating open Thurs. And the Lakers Defenders were struggling to get out there and get a hand up and they were knocking them down. Joe Harris ridiculous 647 from 3 for 21 points. I said, this is a pregame video game. But one thing that they couldn't do was allow another guy to get going if Kyrie gets his points if James Harden gets his points you're going to live with that you're going to try to make life as difficult as you can on them, but you can't allow another guide to get going in and this game Joe Harris certainly did again dropping 21 points and then you gave up 15 to Timothy Loma Carrboro 2015 points to TLC not great. They're from the Lakers side of things LeBron. James had to pretty much do everything 32.8 board 7 assists 33 minutes glad that he only played 33 minutes. No reason for you to burn him out in this game when it was clearly won. The Nets were going to win especially once they got into the second half LeBron 146 from three three of six from the line, okay? One of the only other guys in double-figures was sixteen and ten. So we got a double-double Montrezl Harrell with ten points. Nobody else really did a whole lot out there. Nobody else did did much on the offensive end. You had nine points from k c p but just 145 from 3 West Matthews who started and played some shooter 144 shooting o of two from deep in 24 minutes Mark assault eight points did shoot for 3:00. So I'd like to see them in four to five threes a night did shoot for hit two of them. So you'll take that but the Lakers on the night shooting just 27% from 3 that slide from behind the three-point line at one point. They were third in the NBA in 3-point percentage and they have dropped dramatically since then and in fact last game they were up just about forty percent from three against the wolves and that was the first game in a while they'd been even better than league-average from deep and that's usually about thirty-five thirty-six percent tonight shooting just 27% That's with me rounding up. That's not good enough that will not get it done 6 a.m. Turnovers on the night as well. That's not a good sign either pretty much everywhere things could have gone wrong for the Lakers. They they really did ten offensive rebounds compared to 8 to the Brooklyn Nets. The brake pads are terrible rebounding team. That was a place where the Lakers needed to dominate 24 free throw attempts for the Nets compared to just 14 for the Lakers each and every spot along the way where the lake she really needed to win that particular area free throw attempts 3-point percentage turnovers, the Nets came out on top and because of that they won the game and wanted thousand Ali so I wouldn't be taking your questions and comments, but I guess before we get into everything. How much do we really take away from this knowing? There's no Anthony Davis knowing there's no Dennis Schroder knowing that the Lakers how many times tonight did we see the Lakers throw out lineups that we've never seen before with five men groups that literally have not played a single minute together yet. Not played a minute. That matters and I know we get some people who say it always but you can't make excuses. You can't you know, you have to go out there and win every single game. I'm just telling you what happened in the game. We saw the Lakers defense breakdown thought that was the Nets offense was really good part of that was the Lakers energy wasn't there part of that was also that they were playing an unfamiliar groupings and defense being something where everybody has to be on the same page. You get defensive breakdowns like this when you throw a line up together add necessity, I don't blame Frank Vogel here. You have no shooter. No Anthony Davis your entire rotation changes and you're winding up throwing out these kind of bizarre lineups out on the court and that's going to create defense of break that breakdowns. It's going to lead to open looks because you guys aren't used to knowing exactly where they're going to switch off their defense of responsibilities are it's a tough situation to be in and so I don't want to make excuses for the Lakers energy. I think they should have played with more energy with more Pace should

N.B.A. Announces All-Star Game Plans In Atlanta Despite Player Objections

"This. I am Tony D. All right, so it looks like the N B. A is going to be holding its All Star game in Atlanta. That date is on March. 7. Players don't want to be there. But the MBA thinks it's the right thing to do. Adam Silver wants to hold it. They'll be very limited fans in attendance. They're gonna honor the historical black colleges. So they're gonna have about 1000. People in attendance are going to donate 2.5 million to the historical black colleges, which is a good thing to do. However, the players don't really want to go to the All Star game, and fans are wondering if it should be held it given that we're still in this pandemic, LeBron James and Kevin Durant are going to be all star captains for this game. Look, I understand where this league is coming from A mean despite its charitable givings. It wants to hold an All Star game. It wants to make some revenue off of it from the television contract in the television obligation, it feels like it's an event. It could run be run safely, but it's not really concerned about the look of what an All Star game is. An All Star game is not just An entertainment vehicle, right? It is not just inopportune itty for you. We is fans to watch the best go up against the best The All Star game now and you because you can see this in Major league Baseball as well is becoming just a period of time to celebrate the sport. Like the city that the All Star game is in becomes party central. There's a lot of elements players that aren't in the All Star game, go to the All Star game anyway, because it's a fun time to sort of have, you know to let loose. Have a good time. All the All Star game is going on. There's almost like a relaxed break. This is going to be completely different. The city of Atlanta is not going to be rocking and rolling with the whole bunch of things to do. There's not gonna be the social aspect of the All Star game. I could understand why players don't want to go. I could. I could totally understand It's yet another game and yet another risk that they take by maybe getting this virus. It's another safety protocol. They gotta go through rather than maybe going home and quarantining there for whatever break that they're on. That being said, these leagues are starting to find out that their opportunities to maximize any sort of revenue stream they can is slim. And so there's an opportunity to make a little money on the television rights and the obligations that you've got to roll the All Star game. Adam Silver's gonna hold the All Star game, all the charities and all the things that they're doing off the court are good. But in the end, I think this is about revenue. And so they don't really care whether

Chris Broussard: LeBron is right, KD, Warriors Big 3 were better than Nets

"Asked about playing in next week's free for the first time on thursday. Lebron james pump the brakes on calling it. An unprecedented collection of talent reminding reporters quote. We forgot about katie. Stephan play. already. I mean there you go there you go right there of course lost back to back finals to the warriors big three that he referenced right then i first sard is back joining us. I don't think so chris. Do you agree with the brown hair. Well i i'm guessing that skip sensors and alterior motive. Oh i won't go there. I'll be interested in seeing what he says. But i'm going with the golden state guys staff clay and and i've got five reasons why number one the pieces fit together better when those three katie went to golden state. We had no questions about whether or not it was going to work because none of the guys are ball dominant. None of them needed the ball in their hands. A lot to be effective and give you twenty plus points. Obviously james harden and car. We have been bald dominant dribble it a lot which can make it more difficult to fit together now. They're fitting together great offensively but theoretically there games are a lot more ball dominant. Golden state guys to golden state was better defensively. And i'm not just talking about draymond green. Who's not even part of this conversation. You add katie. Who was younger and i. I'm sure it was a better defender at that point. Then he can be at this point a little older often an achilles injury and then klay thompson was a legitimately very good defender. He made an all nba. Defensive team steph obviously is in the category of harden and kyrie. None of them are really great defenders. The third thing better shooters as well as hard and kyrie shoe. And they are great shooters steph. Curry is the best shooter in nba history. So good that he changed the game. He literally changed the way the nba is played because he's such a great shooter and clay is arguably arguably the second greatest shooter of all time again that enables you to fit better together and certainly for today's game the better shooters i mean. That's a huge thing. You have fourth no drama. They they they were low maintenance guys in golden state k. d. had a little drama but for the most part that's a low maintenance group in brooklyn i i love his game but i gotta worry about kyrie. He was playing great at the beginning of the season. And then all of a sudden just went awol. Is that going to happen again. Is going to be happy. The entire season playing shooting guard. Or will he get the rich to have the ball in his hands more again even last night. Why was car sitting out. They said back tightness. But i bet you replace the next five games and is fine and plays great like they need to be on the floor as much as possible. I can't be legitimately injured hamstring but kyrie hard and they don't need to be just sitting out to rest are so the drama a is there. And here's the final thing steph and clay before k. got there. They proved that they could lead a team to a championship. They proved they didn't need this transcendent lebron or k. d. or somebody like that to lead them to a championship. They didn't need a stack team. They did it on their own k. D. was certainly the best player on those golden state teams but he went to a champion. Already he is still yet to prove. He can lead his own team to a championship. Even though it was the best player kyri hit one of the greatest shots in nba. History may be the greatest. But obviously that was lebron's team. Kyrie has have much playoff success without lebron james yet and we know harden has yet to prove that he can lead a team to a championship. So for all those reasons. I'm going with golden state

What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?

"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

"All right now. Let's talk about the all star game. We talked about this yesterday. That is going to be on march seventh in atlanta but certain people are not happy about it. One of those people is lebron james now he told reporters after the lakers beat the nuggets on thursday night at staples center said. I don't even understand why we're having an all star game. He said i'll be there physically but not mentally and a lot of people. Don't think it's a good idea. He also said it's a slap in the face amidst the pandemic.

"lebron james" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"You know it's all worth ended today. You know it's interesting I said this I I love when an occasional Aaron Rodgers or Lebron. James is not afraid to admit, Hey, I'm pretty damn good. Everybody else talks trash why can't Lebron James or Aaron Rodgers or somebody else and when Lebron says, put some respect on my what what did you make of that? His speech after they want? It's about damn time. I've been telling him for years I said listen you the best player, the best play every played this game you gotTa Start Talking I know you denies guy and you know you don't want you WanNa make everyone. Happy. But you gotta you gotTa talk the talk you walk the walk, you WanNa Duncan, guys, block shots, and all that stuff you got to let them know put some respect on your name and that made me so happy when he said that Rachel Nichols when you interviewed him because it's the truth every time he just pressure on he makes something happen then there's another. Stat that comes out that he's not a part of and he makes it happen. So he keeps every time we a challenge. He just looks at it and takes it on and makes makes greatness out of glad. He said about time by the way players talk about the goat conversation MJ. Lebron. Oh all the time I mean I I literally have this conversation after every game, the Lakers player we're watching the last dance and it's definitely in the locker room I think a lot of guys that are playing in in our game right now current players will say they'll Lebron's abyss. Obviously, you know the friends I, have are all in their. Late Twenties Early Thirties. So we all agree. But as always that one friend or that one guy in the locker room that will that will say Jordan and. It's Kinda crazy that some guys will say Jordan because I think. You know as athletes we haven't even I. Feel like sometimes, guys don't want to say Lebron because they might have to garner next night. John Forty on them so MORE THEIR EGO, not be realistic with himself well, and I also think Lebron did some Lebron decided this year I'm going to lead the League in assists I've always said Lebron got a lot of Wilton and wilt did that at one point in his career he said I. I'm an elite elite assists and we'll led the league in assists is that wilt? Could have done. It was a little bit of a flake Lebron's not wilt and Lebron are really the only players in my life who could just decide Oh we're forwards and centers. We want to be the best passer in the League and Michael couldn't do that. Michael was the best score but I don't think he would have ever been the best passer. Look at when you look Anthony Davis. I join I from week one we were like God it's just so natural. And it speaks well to both of them because we all know Kyri and Lebron had their had their issues. But who do I what do you make the Lebron ad relationship and just how strong it feels. No, it's extremely strong very natural because it's not basketball. I? Think obviously, yes. When you have a garden, a big Man XS and Os coaching. That's easy. That's the easy thing I think will make this relationship work is the mental aspect. I mean Lebron is the best player world and it's very rare that you see a top three caliber player like Anthony Davis coming without a top three, hundred ego and I think that's why the relationship has grown so much and also you know obviously having the same agent as rich Paul. He told me when when when abroad came back to Cleveland like you guys are GonNa have success appointed time. If you guys want to championship, there's GonNa be. Guys are developing ego and there's going to be a wedge that forms on our team and and with La, he said, you know that that's not going to happen because the way. His mindset and his circle and his people obviously, we all have the same agent. So we all have this more family bomb relationship where we all just want the best thing and it's almost like if you look at when they're celebrating, it's like eighty. He's like you know what this is for my big brother I. WanNa, help be part of his legacy and not so much. Hey, I wanna be the man and this is GonNa. Be My show because at the end of the day when you play Lebron no matter if you score sixty one night or you score one hundred points in the headlines are going to be. About Lebron and if you can understand and say, you know what, how can I be the best asset for Lebron and now a obviously help yourself and helped me to help me get that big contract. It'd be the role player. So imagine all star you'll get everything you want if you just buy into that process and understand Lebron Lebron and you can be a great player in your lane. It'll be interesting I mean Rondo I thought proved me wrong I thought he was kind of washed and I thought he was unbelievable against Denver and spots I thought he was unbelievable in that game Sunday so I'm wrong on that. That's Rondo TV lights are on Rondos, the defense These guys played so well, you know. So when you look at next year, Avery Bradley can come back. They are a pretty old team I do think Casey P I'm in on ep I thought he played with guts. He's. Not. Afraid. Of any big shot so I'm in on Casey. Coups. MMA. Drives me nuts loses confidence too much. Do you think they need because everybody's going to be better next year Dallas Lucas going to be your older clippers comeback chip on their shoulder what little piece could they get in free agency in your Opinion Tristan? I think calling you know with with. The uncertainty I, think that the salary Cap Zephyr. GonNa play a big part of that. But in terms of constructing your team if I'm Rob Pelinka and I'm the front office I'm looking at Okay we won this year. So every team is in look at our roster and try to pick US apart. So I they gotta look at who they think could be given the toughest challenge next year and Obviously I've been saying this for a long time, I still think those guys in the bay area are going to be coming ready to go. Obviously, you know they've got the number two pick, which is constantly what happened in San Antonio there Dave Abrams out you go and get Tim Duncan and you come out with a bang. So I think the Lakers got to look at you know that Golden State. Warriors team and say, okay, how can we form a team that can guard them but also we've got to be able to make shots, and if we look in the playoffs, you need guys who can guard multiple position. Yeah. You're a five. May you got to be able to guard a small four? If you are a small Ford you got to be able to switch onto a big and be. Able to contain more or get cut tough contests. So I think if I'm the Lakers we got continue improving our shooting but have guys who can guard multiple position because that's what they started. Markeith Morris and a couple of those games because you got to switch it up you need guys and guard multiple positions and obviously dwight it was tough for them. Yeah. No, it's a really good point well tripton. May Not talk to you for a while because the NBA season's done, we love having you as part of Fox love when you come on my friends are always like oh Tristan's got all this. Now, my wife's always wants to know about your personal life, but I say honey that we can't talk about his personal life on the air that's not the way the game works but these great everything's great home. All right that's all I wanNA hear buddy. Continued continued success. Love having us a teammate. Thanks man. Appreciate thank for having. I love being on. Thank you. All right tristen. Now his point is it was hard to bring a dwight. Howard Javale McGee in the finals you need somebody that can defend multiple positions and remember Golden State's back. Next year you're going to have staff. You'RE GONNA have play GONNA have dream on. They'll probably have the number one they have the one or two pick. What what's golden say they have a number two pick. So then Golden State and then you're GonNa have Dallas getting better. FIRST OF ALL DENVER IS GONNA. Come back next year a now they've gone deeper in the playoffs. So Denver is gonNA come back and by the way Denver's can have home court advantage next year with noble Altitude has always been whenever Denver's good. We forget about this big advantage planet Denver's good teams are always really good at home. Utah's GONNA get healthy. They got banged up member Donovan hurt his wrist that's just the West. In. The clippers are GonNa come with the IRS so. Having durant is back next year guys. Yeah. So it's in all those Miami young kids they're all better..

"lebron james" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"Win wanna get that record? Lebron James is chasing something greater than player of the month. Couldn't you argue though that we need both. None really. I mean, you don't wanna just unplug sometimes and watch tooth fairy. Never. Does need a light movie every once in a while while the light movies, a hangover's hysterically funny? I'm not saying I don't like comedies. There's never been a point in my life. I thought you know, what I want? I want to spend seventy bucks on popcorn tickets and watch tooth fairy revenue was the level of every movie I'd go to the movies more. The problem is half the movie stink. Now, I just stay home. And wait for vice to come out on you know, on at home, and I'll watch it my finger. We go to the movies a lot. But I mean, I think that you need balance and everything so you have the Russell westbrooks stats and then make it exciting during the regular season. And then you appreciate the guys like MJ and LeBron who win the championships in a different category. I just think everything can be the same and one one. It depends on what you're motivated. But I think in sports it's about winning. I agree with this you, and I have gone back and forth on this a lot. I prefer championships MJ. Even championships. It's not just you prefer team you prefer. We over me. Because sports is about a collaboration a community a unit you're building together a momentum. Right. I don't think basketball's better with Russell Westbrook shooting twenty eight times and shooting forty percent. I think the Westbrook now who's this tribute or still can't shoot Oklahoma city's better the games better. It's a better example. Like, I think Westbrook's game now is about winning and he still can't use his plus minus is the fourth best on his own team. Right. I think like even with will and Bill Russell when you use as examples when we look at Wilt Chamberlain. We talk about his career in a fun way. You know, he's still someone who contributed to the game. He still put up incredible numbers. You just put Bill different category winning category. Listen, I got I liked the rock. The raucous. James harden was I would watch him play like to your point. If harden was in town tonight. I go on. I just think that there needs. There's always a sports is entertainment. Right. There's always this'll be a balance and everything. But I don't really think that I think the NBA media tends to fall in love with the less relevant stuff and not pay attention to the more relevant stuff. There's too much fan. Boy. Yeah. We know. I don't think we do a show. I think our show is the wet blanket side, we try to balance things out. But of course, everyone gets excited and attracted to the new funding interesting thing, and that tends to be at the patriots in the warriors like winning gets boring. Because it's consistent. You know? I went yesterday. I got a physical physical yesterday. This is just a minute of wasted time. But I have to say about this. So I go to get a physical, and you know, it's just not that much fun. They're poking and prodding and stuff, and you know, whatever. And then I get my blood test at the end, and and so I just closed my fist, and I turn away. I don't mind giving blood give it three or four times a year. I don't wanna watch it. And I'm sitting there talking to lay blah, blah, blah. And then I turned over to the right is like six vials of blood over there. One of my vampire, what's happening to me. See guy you six vials.

He's got rings. Every megastar that has played that has done a purple and goal has won a championship. They've delivered a championship to LA. You don't wanna be LeBron James Peter one failed to do that. You just don't wanna do that. That's not what you want here. If you all abroad, James, what you wanna do is you wanna make sure you deliver that and I don't mean delivering it by doing what you normally do in terms of dropping twenty seven night even necessary to understand that over the next four years, anything positive that happens to LeBron for the Los Angeles Lakers. The credit goes to two people. Magic Johnson, LeBron James. Magic. Joseph take it over and establishing a level of instant credibility to the Los Angeles Lakers franchise.

So let's just call it what it is when you are members of lake nation, and the residue of that reality is still fresh in your damn nostrils how dare you. Treat LeBron James, like there's something he has to earn you lucky. He's here. This is all ready to be a LeBron James star in a walk of fame right now for the solar express reason that he came and he arrived in LA. That alone. That alone. Support LeBron James in that stratosphere. You owe a debt of gratitude because he has made the loss Angeles Lakers instantly relevant again, that's what he has done. You need to take heavily thought a matter of fact, there's only people like me and others that to cover him there Lake Erie. That's having attitude with him. And that was from the last four years. That's the past. That's the pay fast. I got nothing but love for LeBron days right now. You know, we go. So let's just make sure we clear about that. Now, having said, all of that, I will say this and this is something that's very, very important that everybody understands. When we talk about LeBron James and we talk about the notion of pressure. Okay. This keep things in it's proper perspective. The broad James has to deliver a championship in the four years that he's going to. He's committed to the Los Angeles Lakers. There's no other way around it. We realized that any way we want to, there's no way around it. LeBron James has to win a championship. You size it anyway. You want the broad. James has to do that. Laser gentleman right now. Elgin Baylor has the most NBA finals losses with eight. He was all for eight. Oh, for eight. The year he retired. Is the year the Lakers won the championship. He retired midseason. Jerry West is second on this. The wonderful Jerry West, a basketball savant that his Jerry West, the consulted, the Steve Balmer, the owner for the Los Angeles Clippers that Jerry was that Jerry West, who bought a way has a legitimate shot of getting a while Lennon to come to the clippers next season that do. Carey was has eight finals MBA loss to, but he won one. He went to nine. MBA is lost eight. Eligibility went over eight. They gentleman, you know who's third on that list. Donate listens, LeBron James. But I'm here to tell you right now. Forget the six NBA finals losses. Forget it doesn't matter. Let me tell you why. It's so pivotal for LeBron James to win a championship as long as he's in LA. Because every more key major superstar who's ever won the purple and gold other than Elgin Baylor has won a championship. That's what. Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul. Jabbar have four NBA finals losses, but magic one, five rinks Kareem one, six. And both of them one championships with the Lakers we'll Chamberlain only has two championships and six NBA finals. Appearances on his resume will Chamberlain. Has to rings one was with the Lakers..

"In with the details and you get the details, right. Imagine if you. We're talking with LeBron James, the greatest basketball player ever. I know there's people right now who here one more thing I say, you're so cranked up, but relax because it's true. Imagine if you're talking about LeBron James and you said to LeBron James, what kind of socks do you? What brand of socks do you wear in a game? And imagine if LeBron James looked at you and said, I don't know. That's a good question. I never really thought about it. I just when I need some. I just tell my wife and when she's at target. She picks me up a couple of pairs. You'd be like, no, I think you're pumpkin me because you and I both know I don't know why we know this, but we just know that LeBron James knows exactly what kind of socks he wears. I assume he's tried every kind of sock that he can. And I soon he has died in the precise socks that he wears because the man is trying to perform at the highest possible level. And socks matter when you're trying to do that, especially at the age of thirty three when you've now come to Los Angeles. Thank you. So you and I in stink. Tivoli know that he doesn't take the socks, things casually that he. He is wearing the best possible pair. And the reason why I find that interesting is because at that level when you're performing at that level, the details matter and what you see in Torah here, what you see in Leviticus is that for everybody, everywhere. The same thing is true, which is why those makeover shows. They go visit Larry in Georgia and say, essentially, Larry, your socks matter and they get a trash bag and they take all his old nasty socks and they put it and they take it out to a trash bin and they go and they get him fresh socks, right? You've seen this honor times because what's true of LeBron is what's true of Larry in Georgia..
