"Will get back to the NFL in a few minutes of the top of the hour. I want to get to Anthony Davis because we've been talking LeBron LeBron LeBron. And we know Lakers win the championship. The main story is going to be LeBron this LeBron James that LeBron James LeBron James LeBron James. What about Anthony Davis? And I want to go back to a conversation that we have a Justin Termini. Justin Termini was on this show from Sirius X. Mm. Ba radio. I'm adjusting. Termini was on with us. He said something That was a little bit surprised about He didn't love the way that Anthony Davis went about getting out of Los Angeles. Okay? And he doesn't really want to celebrate. Anthony Davis was basically the gist of his comment. He doesn't He doesn't feel right, celebrating Anthony Davis, forcing his way out and then get handed a championship now. I'm sure just in terms of the the first one to tell you Anthony Davis. As the top two reasons why the Lakers will win this championship. And Anthony Davis. I've said this before the plaice and I'll say it again. He's the most valuable player the Lakers right now he is He is the most valuable player on the Los Angeles Lakers. I'm not saying he's the best player. I'm not saying he's the greatest player, but from a value standpoint. When this guy scores 29 points or more at least 29 points. They win. They win games. And in Game four. It was him who made the Big three. It was him who made the big block. No, I'm not undermining LeBron James. I'm not an idiot. I only I know the importance of LeBron James. But when I look at the Lakers for this season, I thought Anthony Davis was the most valuable player. As you know what you're always getting out of LeBron James. We didn't know what we were going to get in the big moments out of Anthony Davis. So for a D. How do you view this championship when he wins it? And I don't view it. As a negative. I don't view it as all like he ran his way out of New Orleans, and then he got handed this trophy so we shouldn't celebrate it. I don't And some did feel that way. A lot felt that way. LeBron had to go chase to win a championship. He had to go join a super team with the heat. Kevin Durant. He had already joined an already great team to get a championship. How could he do that? I really do believe the LeBron and Anthony Davis situations are different. And I believe that LeBron are the Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant. Situation is different, too. Why do you look at LeBron? Going to Miami. That's joining an already great team. For a team that you knew was going to win championships for years and years to come is the way I should put it. Was they had waited time. Yeah. Bash you get LeBron. That's a team. They even said it. Not one, Not two, not 3 4000 Championships. So you knew that that team was expected to be championship or bust each and every year? When Kevin Durant Went to a team that won 73 games a year. Prior. You knew that was championship or bus each and every year. Not that the Warriors won the championship every year, which almost there besides the final year. And it took the Steph injury or accept the Durant injury in the clay injury. And then for LeBron, You felt that they were going to the championship each and every year and they want to out of four. A loss to the Spurs once And Oh, yeah, they lost the Spurs once. Was the other lost two. I can't remember this all of the Mavericks star. So it's the lowest moment of LeBron James's career. So there was that feeling off. They're always going to get there and they're going to win it. With Anthony Davis go until Lakers There wasn't that feeling. With LeBron that they were guaranteed to win the championship this year, they weren't even guaranteed to get to the finals this year. Yes, it was championship or bust, but When Anthony Davis and LeBron James form teams, you know, you know, merge together and LeBron was already an Anthony Davis joined him. It wasn't as if you said, Oh my God. The Lakers are super team, their top two Top three team in the league. A championship or bust. A lot of people were saying the Clippers were going to get to the finals, so I think there's a difference there. This wasn't Anthony Davis joining Steph Clay and Dreamin. This wasn't Anthony Davis joining LeBron and Wade. This was Anthony Davis. Yes, knowing he had to leave New Orleans to win a championship, and he teamed up with LeBron They're the best dynamic duel in the league. I'm not denying that the error, though, that it is, though for this season. There's no super teams that exists. This was the most open. The MBA has been in a long time. And look at the finals that we got and the East. We thought it was a locked at the bucks. We get there. The Bucks didn't get there was the heat. And we thought all throughout the year with 100% certainty. We would see Clippers and Lakers and the Western Conference finals and we didn't see Clippers and Lakers in the Western Conference finals. We ended up seeing the Denver Nuggets with Jamal Murray Nicole Yokich. Go up against LeBron James and Anthony Davis. So I think the Anthony Davis.
Is there a war on Bitcoin?
"Look at the name of this episode rate yun-mi you talked about it and we were kind of i i but but the name kind of ended up as like the war the war read and richard say maybe you know what is what is this war is there a war and set the bitcoin and blockchain and and i would argue that that there is last week you know the president of the united states commenting about bitcoin in in a slightly demeaning where the treasury secretary of america called crypto currencies and national security threat last year india's recently imposed an all-out ban on on china's been been playing with their positioning in the market from day one so i think it's it's very clear that there's that there's a war on one side from both world and private david banks and the and the implications of what bitcoin and other various cryptocurrencies impact they're going to have i think there is a war warford data right so as into the world where we're getting increasingly worried at both facebook and google owning our data we have the obtain owner honored ourselves right the private keys that we manage our bitcoin waltz with also a broader implications are private keys could give us the rights to our own data and to share with who and with what we want and then i think i think we have a final war with you know who controls our data right so when you look at applications like voting results right you can find many dictators in the world that constantly win elections under the shadow of doubt right in the issue is that that there's no oh ledger of data that everybody can validate right so i think on multiple fronts this revolution kind of started something and i i think one of our goals are are they at least say for myself with bitcoin radio is to protect right get everybody together everybody's voice involved unmask what's really really happening and i think that you know you could probably consider there's there's a few phases of what would be gone through maybe one was honeymoon phase now maybe we're kind of entering like a black market phase where people are starting to the really overly regulate we make addict competition phase like stuff like lebron lebron and governments and large organizations coming in and then kind of like the final battle so i think the next few years is going to be very interesting that gets me excited just as you said i'm i'm gonna reference one of the quotes brian armstrong had brian armstrong for those of you who who now i mean he's obviously the the CEO of coin base i think it's quite what's something along the lines of the first they ignore you then laugh at you didn't they fight you and then you win and that that's a really good starting point for where i personally believe we all right outright all right is they did laugh at us right they ignored us now now we're starting to hear this fight right and the wind is coming and you know the the the one way i can say that that bitcoin is so safe and all of this war is that you can't call in the CEO of coin over excuse me a bitcoin to to congress got facebook they're sitting in there asking questions right pat you know like oh wait maybe we shouldn't allow this to happen big tech maybe they shouldn't be a lotta token is well what are you gonna tell bitcoin you who you gonna call in what employees do they have right and so we're we're in this we're in the space right now we're bitcoin is the standard and as we've we've we've given respect to it in an aim bitcoin radio this episode is called the war and we are not only fighting a war we're fighting the war for the next x. generation to fight the war because this isn't stopping anytime soon until we literally break the cycle and i mean you may differ on a few political issues pat but i think it all comes down to the same ain't thing and that is is everything fair right now i mean anything fair right now it's everything stack actually against us in my personal opinion i can say like this if i'm going to believe even something i want to believe in something that i think has the opportunity to never be manipulated before i even start getting into quantum computing or the potential issues that they might have in the future right now in front of us is this key the key to everybody's future of self-regulation to certain extent and i'm not anarchist i believe in government government believe humans want to regulate themselves i believe humans are comfortable regulated in on a on a certain level but when we get too big too powerful when when government gets it's too big and too powerful the intent as innocent as realistic and as they might have thought it was back then it has evolved in morphed into something that we've kind of lost our own control i love i mean we vote for these people right but the system has taken over and whether it's an obviously we're speaking from an american perspective here but whether you're republican or democrat you're you're still fighting each other there's so much division it almost feels like it's insurmountable at times and you know what that's exactly what they want you to think that's exactly how they want you to feel i mean pat what do you what do you see as bitcoins standstill principles here what is it that makes you so attractive to the space it changes the world in principle i i something i've been kind of telling people lately is is an and i'm not sure everybody in the world grasped but there's a very unique i think tying into a bitcoin it's it's very specific and i think you know look let's look at a united states policy right sometimes they drop bombs on countries trees are drones other times with some of the more powerful enemies what they do countries like north korea and russia is that they sanction them right and if we were free inspection inspect what a sanction is they're essentially cutting them off from the global banking system so they freeze their bank accounts and they freeze their ability to to wire money will the way these people wire money as there's a there's a system named with an acronym called swift and some the listeners might be might be familiar with with it it's it's one of those ripples biggest value added they're trying to kind of replace the swift banking system well well you know swift is a series computers that is sending money from one bank to another with a bunch of centralized banks well once you're starting to read a lot of news like this you know how how can america the sanction iran how can they sanction russia or north korea and try to freeze billions of dollars when these people can come with the USB stick and move who've ten billion dollars in the coffee shop right and you get to this point where this core technology is really striking at the heart of some very powerful people right and i think if we look at why the why is because now we trust it right we've moved billions of dollars back back and forth with bitcoin in it appears that it's you know it's it's we trusted now right we we we when we send that money we're like ninety nine point nine percent sure that it's going to get where it needs to go and if there's ever a panic in bitcoin so there might be a world one day where the technology proves have a fault right and you mentioned under the quality computers here's in the various ways in the future might have issues as long as we trusted then it's something that we feel comfortable utilizing right want something that people feel comfortable utilizing then the only thing stopping adoption is a variety of other factors marketing each of us you know educating older or younger generations about the technology then the the adverse effects are very big for a lot of entities right and we find that a lot of those entities are very powerful right they're the ones with the tanks they're the ones with the big banks didn't mean it rhyme that but it was pretty cool mcgowan bro this this terrifies them right they they lose a lot of their power and once that happens you know you put you put an animal in the corner you might not like the results and that that might be what we're staring pretty
The NBA Finals are hours away, so why are we still talking about the Lakers?
"Now's witching gears to the Lakers. Just there's so much there. Michael. I mean I'm wondering and you're buried in it. What about this situation, especially the last month or so surprises you the most? I think what surprises me the most is the NBA finals are starting in, you know, a little over twenty four hours, thirty six hours and we're still talking about the Lakers and all the drama and dysfunction going on within their organization in in one week from June. I think that's the biggest surprise for me. I'm not surprised by the reports coming out, you and I have discussed this at nauseam before, and what sources have said and what was going on? And I think Magic Johnson going on. I take last week just reinforce that Baxter home story on ESPN as well. I wrote a story that happened to coincide with Baxter's publishing today comparing the Lakers two game. Come on, just all this family, and sibling, fracturing and backstabbing, it's not just been going on this year. But since Dr Jerry Buss died in two thousand thirteen and you know, I, I made the comparison that Magic Johnson played the role. Role of the tar, Gary and torching Lakers landing, you know, not to play spoiler for anybody who hasn't seen it. But that's what he did by going on. I take you know, he, he aired all the dirty laundry. And, and that's that's the most interesting part. I think even today it's going on after this article magic coming out saying, if he has to do it all over again. He would've fired everyone in brought in his own people, including and rob. So it's just never ending story. I don't have one point two million followers out there like brawny, but I definitely think people should be paying attention to what just this dysfunction going on within, the, the Lakers organization. Do you believe the part about Rich Paul going to the Commissioner of the NBA to complain about? Luke Walton as the head coach of the Lakers. Not necessarily the way it was phrased. But he did I read the article, and it did sound like he saw the Commissioner at a restaurant. And so maybe it's possible in this long conversation that went on a bunch of different topics. They asked about Luke Walton and what he thought maybe he gave his two cents. I don't think he approached the Commissioner saying, you know, we should have his job or anything, but look we heard from sources throughout the season, especially early on. Right. Lebron LeBron didn't like Luke Walton didn't want him as the coach. And those we all knew that was coming from his camp, which essentially is Rich Paul Rich Paul was at every game. He was sitting courtside. He had his c-. We I got to speak to him a lot many people did. So we thought that's where it was coming from. So the fact that he didn't want Luke Walton as his coach and wanted Tyron Lewis. The article said that didn't surprise me at all the manner in which he may have gone about it without him silver that, that kind of did, surprise me. But I wouldn't be surprised if it had been mentioned in the
"lebron lebron" Discussed on Open Floor
"Yeah. Let's also again, I feel like I'm like his lawyer right now, we we care about LeBron LeBron. I'm just like an honest conversation about it. And it's good stuff. We also talk about LeBron one hundred times more than we talk about the way, we have for the last decade straight. And that scale here matters for sure because the intensity of the microscope on LeBron is so much different than even any of his peers can realize like Kevin Durant. I know he's wanted to be viewed as the best basketball player for what like the last ten years and feels like he's being shirked kind of in that conversation. We'll look man like if you can't handle what's going on a Golden State this year. You have no chance if the entire intensity of what we know. You know, what LeBron in terms of media scrutiny over the last decade? I mean, a lot of guys would have shrivelled would have fallen apart. Lebron hasn't he certainly has been he certainly has not been perfect. I wouldn't you know, his decision to go to the Lakers. Not looking great right now. It's looking like it could really shift his legacy a negative way. But he's held up a lot better than a lot of child stars and other industries and a lot of other athletes who have fallen in the face of much less scrutiny than he gets. Yeah. It's a really good point. And you know, what with the focus on Durant and kyri and whether superstars are happy. I've had a lot of complicated thoughts on that front as well. And I think one of the things that is underplayed is that a lot of these guys when you talk about the biggest stars the NBA has today they are internationally famous to a degree that someone like Charles Barkley. Can't totally. Appreciate and the the level of fame they're dealing with. And the the way it's amplified in the social media climate like is a big deal, and they're basically all living like Connie west like existence. And so if a few of them fall prey to misery here in their go through rough patches, it actually shouldn't be that surprising. And it's more remarkable that LeBron who is more famous than anyone has not really had that happen. And I think the biggest thing you can criticize him for is being too self aware too careful and too conscious of the way he's perceived which is fine. But he does deserve a lot of credit for remaining stable as like kind of the bedrock of the sport. Because really like we talked about it earlier in the week. Everything's going to revolve around him regardless and to be kind of a reliable, you know leader at the center of all this. A huge deal. I think he's a big reason the league is in a great place. Because of the example that he's set for guys over the last ten or fifteen years, so great debris to bring that full full circle. That's exactly my point about the on the court, and I'm with you off the court to on the court, we focus too much on that you know, that one shot that he made to pass Jordan or the state of that game on the Lakers in reality. We should have been focusing on the twenty years of basketball excellence off the court same deal, we focus a little bit too much on the silly tweets or the corny Instagram posts when you make some random record after Lakers laws, and he's kind of celebrating himself, or we focused an awful lot like a month of our attention on. Okay. Is he trying to get Anthony Davis off the Lakers at the expense of his teammates? We focus less on the twenty years of stability as an icon in the NBA. And how he's carried that mantle pretty Arn. Well in the big picture, and I think that those are so takeaways you you lose away from this milestone, I understand it. We're trying to. To tie off this conversation, but you do lose a little bit because I think that LeBron has been appreciated like over the last five years and will continue to be appreciated over the next fifty years..
Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, and the Lakers
"Irving situation. There's a lot of there's a lot of things that are happening. Let me just say this one more time about LeBron. Lebron kyri could play together don't they will? But I think they'd could. And Kyrie's network in Boston the bottom line for the Lakers right now. And this is why the season's done it's over. I said it two days ago is if you're star player in your coach are not connecting. And there's not respect it doesn't work. If you watch a Laker game watch the time outs. Look at the body language like Lucan, LeBron like, they do not work. They just don't work. And by the way, Luke Walton is not magic guy. Not LeBron guy. He's not rob Pelinka's guy. He's not clutch sports guy. Luke stung love him. But he's gone. He'll probably coach in college in a year. But it's not gonna work. And so we got this Laker thing if they gotta get anti Davis injury. No playoffs gets Luke fired. Lebron gotta hit one of these
Kyrie Irving Calls Out Young Celtics After Magic Loss
"Reads, Kyrie Irving calls out young Celtics after loss to magic. This is really interesting because he continues to point out that his teammates are young one of the very reasons why he left the Cavs because he didn't like playing with LeBron. Lebron calling him the kid over and over again, he's kind of parroting the same leadership lines that he did. Oh, he definitely is a maybe it will work out. So maybe this is news. Maybe he's taken on LeBron's leadership because it did work out in Cleveland. They want a championship. He did sort of backtrack today at shoot around by saying, you know, maybe I just got a little bit hot. Yeah. It was a loss. It was a tough situation and JT got a
Kevin Durant Is Jealous of LeBron James
"And we all know why you're doing this. We know Kevin Durant while you're doing this because you. Thought as the number two player in the world when you went to Golden State and started winning titles. That would elevate you over LeBrun, and it hasn't LeBron still is the lead story on my show and skip show in any debate showing America that talks NBA, LeBron still the king, and you're just really talented. That's that's your identity. You're not even the most important guy in your own team. We know that through statistics wins and losses in analytics when Steffes gone warriors are average when you're gone. They're still great. They won seventy three game set a record without you. They want championship without you. You could leave tomorrow they put in boogie cousins. I'd have Steph Klay dream on boogie cousins, they'd still win the NBA championship. And this bothers Kevin Durant. He's a very sensitive guy. And he thought going to Golden State would elevate him above LeBron and it hasn't and he's bothered that he still always has to watch these shows and watch the NBA and everybody talked about LeBron more than K D. Listen, I've said this for years magic and bird save the NBA MJ made it global and LeBron made it mobile when you left teams years ago, you were considered disloyal week. Now, if you don't go to a better team, your money grabber winning doesn't matter. You're a diva your week, you're afraid. Kevin Durant doesn't leave Oklahoma City unless LeBron left I for Miami. And took all the arrows and took all the heat. Lebron's always going to be a bigger deal than Kevin Durant, Kevin's Chason ghost. Magic bird saved it Michael medic global and LeBron may delete mobile and what really bothers Kevin Durant is that his number one adversary. Lebron has a much greater legacy and his teammates Steph curry has a much greater impact as well. Lebron made the league mobile and Steph changed the way we play it and Kevin Durant. He's just really talented. There's nothing wrong with that. He is super talented. But we know a couple of things about Durant one of them being he sensitive. He got rabbit ears. He and Aaron Rodgers here everything the difference is Aaron denies here's everything. Kevin durant? Pretty upfront about hearing everything. But will them Ron moved to the Lakers. He once again is the most talked about player in the league. And it drives Durant nuts. He'll never be better than LeBron. He'll never be as relevant as LeBron. He'll never be talked about like LeBron. Lebron leaves teams they disintegrate Kevin Durant left. Oklahoma City the second best team in the west right now. Golden State one before him if he left they put book in they went after him. It's bothering him. First. Lebron was toxic. Now, you're mentioning great players, and you're putting Tyree in there. Come on. Kevin. It bothers you just admit it.

"Got drawing a line in the sand to fight you over Mike McCarthy, whatever you disagree with. Let's move onto the Lakers. It's a stupid narrative when you've got a guy who's one of the winning. You're winning stop with your stupid laugh too. Because. This is one of the winningest coaches in the league and you guys stick so f and easy to win. Stop. You're seeing yourself next. That's all right. TA season starts tonight shot or no shot. Lebron will lead his Lakers to the Western Conference finals. Oh. On. Lakers over the place right now in the Western Conference. Not this rosters better than what he had in Cleveland that roster's loonier than one flew over a coup. I'm telling you, you everyone keeps sleeping on his and forgets that LeBron turns water into wine everywhere. He goes LeBron is to get this team back to the Western Conference finals. Now, they'll get swept by the warriors. You're not getting the Western Conference over Houston over Houston. Yes over God. It's LeBron James. Yeah. I'm doing it. It's no lock Bob definitely saying there's a shot. They have no chance. I don't know if they'll make the playoffs. Where do you stand on this? My my fellow who said I don't think you're going to cosign me having to go in the Western Conference finals. But you definitely got him in the playoffs. Yeah. I think it'll be six I I'm telling you LeBron LeBron's done more with less, bras, the less. I'm not saying he has it. But my goodness. The Western Conference finals Carmelo could go down there, muddy everything up for Houston. We'll see they're not even in the top three. Black is right best. They finish sixth. Okay. Sees a better roster. Houston's a better roster. Golden State, obviously is a better roster. It's going to happen. I think they got a shot the guy shot. Wow. As LeBron James. I'm betting against we gotta break dinner. We done. Oh, we're done. Got break. We'll come right back. More of your cubs and bears calls three one two three three two three seven seven six. And we've got Jesse Rogers coming up. We've got STAN Van Gundy coming up on the show a lot to do ESPN..

"But yeah, there's an adjustment, but the flipside is count. Coups methinks you can play with anyone. Brandon Ingram. I know didn't talk a lot. His as confident and hard working as anybody that you're gonna find out there. He thinks he can go play with anyone and lebrons seems to be setting himself up in a situation where I remove the ball around. I don't wanna have it in my hand all the time. I want to be able to stretch this out over four years through are on the same guy in year four that I am in year one. And if that's the case and LeBron is calculating any basketball player that ever walked the planet and fine if all of that, I, if if all of that happens your right, but the problem that I can foresee if is if they don't all of these things don't click just the way that we would like them to that if they don't get off to a good start, if LeBron does decide at some point that you know what I'm not okay with not doing as much because we're not winning his much wanna win the way that I mean, it's been the finals eight times in a row. I now we're headed for, you know, whatever it is. Officially the sixty. Maybe worse seven, eight, nine and I gotta make sure that we get into this thing and I can't wait around and say, okay, I'm gonna do less. So these guys can develop more quickly. I need to do more. And now sudden we're into that other area where who's on the court, who's getting the minutes, who's doing what? Who's standing around and just watching LeBron LeBron as opposed to learning how to play with. There's no question and like the track record is gets to Miami. They struggle. They almost rain expulsed or out of the building. He'll Pat Riley said, no, they get to Cleveland and comes back. And there's, you know that the judgment period where they are in near five hundred team or at five hundred for a long time this year they were there questions whether or not even playoffs that that. But I, I think there's a scenario where Vic can be winning Fairmont and still not be in the playoffs. Like it's still struggle to three weeks left like they got a win six attend to make sure they get in like that's gonna be a year long struggle. Even if they play pretty well. I just don't think that LeBron LeBron. Would have had to make a incredibly bad calculation about what he wants a player, what he wants a person and who the guys are that are around him. I just don't see him being wrong about all of those things. I do a good chance. They look at you look up fifteen sixteen games in they're nine and seven. I think that's eight. Nine only positive that's likely likely I don't. I think it's gonna take fifty games of that before anybody freaks out not thirty. I don't know. I think if it's thirty thirty people, I mean him not us. Yeah, we'll be doing a we'll. We'll be doing ten games if they're four and six through ten games be panic in the streets. The bronze coming in his sixteenth year in the league. And I know that he came out here with a two year plan. I know that he came out here understanding everything that we've been talking about. I Brown is certainly smart enough to evaluate it all of these things and figured it out. But how many lease for me, there's the intellectual exercise of, hey, if it goes like that or yokip with it and being like, yeah, I think, yeah..

"Don't really have much else to add there any other kind of takeaways from this game i thought that one thing that was notable is that no calves really had a strong performance i mean there were players to have little stretches but nobody really stood out i mean we talked about lebron struggles and he certainly you know he had a solid game but it wasn't l lebron lebron spectacular anything like that and you know that that certainly made it harder for them to come out with a win but they weren't gonna win this they weren't gonna win this game when the warriors were engaged defensively and had that thirteen to three lee lead early on like okay i think i know where this you felt like cleveland's only chance and this one was to get a big lead early and in fact it was golden state cleveland came back a couple of times who were able to take brief leads but other than that the warriors seemed to be in control most of the way led by nine at halftime that i thought the biggest shot of the game was curry at the end of the first half steve kerr takes time out to get him back in because they're worried about foul trouble with him he slips the he's got lebron lebron knew exactly what they're running he slips the screen gets open pump fakes just enough to get lebron's hands down and then actually shoots it over him for the three to give them a nine point lead i think that took a lot of the air out of cleveland at the end of the half i mean lebron messing up his hand to the point where it affect is performed by hitting the whiteboard like that's pretty sorry it's a shame that that happened but i mean to get that ben out of shape it seemed like mostly because of the rafts and then a teammates mistaken you know they they had like the viral video of him just.

"Of course like of course how do they have to do some has to be done about that i'm not saying you have to stack the deck against the cavs and the warriors to make sure it doesn't happen that way it just i think that's what the disappointing part to me was is that if i was going to get cavs warriors for the fourth straight time i wanted something just absolutely unfathomable to happen and i guess in a sense lebron provided that with like dragging all these corpses today they may finals but it still it wasn't quite there even the lebron part of it all like still wasn't i don't know for me at least like it wasn't just otherworldly the it was just taking lebron for granted no it was basically lebron james carrying i mean he disliked worn i think the reason why you feel that way because it wasn't like lebron james is like fist pumping and celebrating you know what i mean he it's like he's from all of the pressure raining down and have a right a carry all this burden on his bag you know he's like the like a hunchback at this point having to carry all these people around i mean he jeff green was basically the x factor if you want to joke about that i mean he was the x factor in that game seven for lebron lebron rely on jeff green who has some come over so much was amazing and everything but i mean i don't even think anyone from georgetown if you're a home biased fan though jeff green was going to do something the twenty you know conference finals to get lebron james of the finals he was basically kevin love i think that's i think that's i think you're absolutely right that's that's what i mean when i say because i mean lebron was he was incredible but there's like there's something weird about how this didn't feel like a it wasn't a celebration it was a.

"Know he's a hometown guy he left he came home he delivered the championship he promised he would deliver and now he's playing the best basketball of his life in his early thirties try to encapsulate that force for somebody for somebody who lives there we don't live there right we don't see it every day we don't know that tangible feeling i would say lebron is cleveland's greatest export in two thousand eighteen he's cleveland's greatest natural resource he's what the city is known for and probably what the city is most proud of at this stage of the game you know if you asked me this years and years ago there were factories here and a lot of incredible industry but now you know it's it he's the thing that the city can read can be proud out that you know that that we have and i think beyond beyond that you know it's it's bigger than basketball i think you know cleveland is a place that is immensely immensely proud of of what it is and i think it's constantly torn down in the media as you know place where our jobs are leaving with the economy is terrible who wants to go to sad sack cleveland the browns perpetuate that stereotype lebron lebron bucks that stereotype and lebron is made cleveland a winner and lebron has changed the way because of lebron a lot of people visited cleveland that wouldn't otherwise friends of mine for example of wanted to come to town for games and so now they have a different feel for what cleveland actually is that's different than its perception and so he represents so many of those things but beyond that too i mean i think you know the kids that he's sent to school in akron the business owners downtown that have had opportunities that otherwise they never would have had i think what.

"Cover al horford didn't last year's playoffs so we'll see what happens on tuesday but what i would do to lebron is i put him in the low post because you get him in the low post he could get triple threat from down there and also you can feel the these double teams quicker than he does out in the perimeter and he can make you pay down there they want him to bring out the ball though they're not gonna sit him in the post that's why you have george hill on the court and they got lebron's not very comfortable with anybody else playing point guard well he did in the last series against toronto in times against indiana he'll go in the low post he's that's i think what the next step of his career is is more of a low post guy because he's got low post moves he's big strong he's got good times i think the ball decisionmaker they have if not the entire league so yeah no this was this was bronco in the post and lebron lebron's gym the finger you'll go in the post he'd be placed down there is marcus morris really going to be like now here's what tonight is more is more than just throwing lots of different bodies he was the second best guarding he's excellent at guarding lebron but that's like that's like saying i'm the best at trying to stop a train that's coming out maybe you could down more than seventy hidden die say i could stop rob gronkowski single coverage good luck but no the celtics had a great game plan they executed but still cleveland had some open looks they were four for twenty six from three that normally gained fourteen to win the game for fourteen they missed their first fourteen nut go on a twenty years shooters to have right i mean korver's and isn't a streaky shooter he's.
