"Maybe the last season he played high level defense was that last season in Miami. But in Cleveland now not so much, but here in L A thirty as we hit the almost the halfway point of the season. I was wrong. I screwed up. I said the Lakers working to make the playoffs. I think they're gonna make the playoffs and looking at that Western Conference field. Is there any team in that Western Conference playoff bracket that you would say the Lakers can't beat outside of Golden State? Like, nobody's speaking gold state everything Golden State's going through right now. Stop. Stop stop writing any Golden State is vulnerable story stopped doing it. You're going to look dumb because at some point DeMarcus cousins gonna come back and play wealth and the buyout market. This is where Golden State gets better. You're going to get like Robin Lopez signing in Golden State, you're going to get like and his canter signing in Golden State. They'll be player bought out that said, screw it. I'm going to be a ring chaser. I'm thirty some years old. I don't ever ring sign me up Golden State. Gimme my ring. Let me go off and make some more my next season. They're going to be fine. Steph Curry's healthy, they're going to be fine. But besides Golden State who else can the Lakers not compete with the Lakers have a chance this year of making the Western Conference finals. That's not something. I'd ever have thought I'd say at the start of the NBA season. Never thought I'd say that. Yeah. Paulie? The starting point guard is a forty five percent free throw shooter. How's that going to work in the playoffs when he's handling the ball and it's a tight game? And you could just foul him get maybe one point. And then you go down and get two or three talking about Lonzo Rondo is they're both you pick horrible free. She right. But least Ron Rondo at least is a tough player who could lock people. John Rondo look Rondo is going to get a lot of planets playoff. Rhonda's real thing. Like, that's an actual thing. You saw in the playoffs last year versus the with the pelicans Rondo decides to play in the playoffs. He's a different player altogether. All's evidence thirty minutes a game. But he's he's actually worse free throw shooters any was last year by a tick. How is that? He's got a weird shot, but I don't guards being bad free throw shooters. I don't really understand right. Like big men. I get it. Sometimes. Utans? It's got the ark of the shot makes it a little bit more difficult, but even big Deandra, Jordan, what's he shooting for the line this year, like seventy five percent, something like that. Maybe eighty won't point. It was in the eighties. So you would just to get better. Look, it's it's it's a problem the free throw shooting. It's a problem. But LeBron James is LeBron James and his power. His ability can elevate them over Houston which right now is battling a Chris Paul injury. Shaquille O'Neal's worst season as a Laker. From the free throw line. Was fifty percent. Lonzo ball's forty five percent. That's not good. That's not. My take on that. It's not. It's not good. Yeah. Perla? How did the Jordan? Do. This is the most incredible. Isn't it around in great stories, the clippers might have won a playoff series? If he had been in Jordan, it's psychological with him not to get too deep into a Dallas maverick weeds here, but the Andre Jordan when he gets the free throw line. He kind of does what Karl balloon does your McCall below at the free throw line. He would have a conversation with himself before he took a shot. The Andre Jordan doesn't have the conversation with himself, but he always barks at a teammate or barks of the bench and for him. It's psychological. It gets his mind off the free throw right before. He takes the free throw start them into a great. Pretty good free. Throws should bring like a book or headphones. I agree. Mom, more coming up next. Talks about fell Cleveland Browns higher.

"Bears football night in America is a four eastern with kickoff at four four that Sunday only on NBC. Lakers lost the thunder last night thunder. Good Paul George MVP level candidate. But that the Lakers are where they are squarely in the playoff mix. Lebron James battling a minor injury. Now, he'll be back. I was wrong about the Lakers came into the season. Hot take you guys to death said Lakers. Not making the playoffs. Can't put that team together Western Conference to tough abroad. James too old too many mercenaries on that team that was a big part of it too. It wasn't just the young players. I didn't really believe in. It was the land. Stevenson's the Rajon Rondo 's the javale mcgee's these are supporting cast players that I didn't buy into what I didn't really give enough credit to was LeBron James is ability to elevate stars elevate players around him not stars lesser players. I should have done this. He elevated players in Cleveland. He elevated George hill he elevated Kevin love he elevated JR Smith Gerald Smith right now, where is Jerry Smith non-factor Jerry Smith was playing in the finals with them last year. What's he doing now? Looking up audio from something? I did something I said the it's like the looks on your face for radio listeners. You can see Seton if something registers in his mind is jobs that I said something stupid back in the day. He find he he just gets that scrambling. Hopefully, he and Polly talking back to each other on the mice got to find it fast before you move on. We missed it reason to move on. Yeah. Paulie? So you're checking yourself. Or your take a whiff? The Lakers are twenty one and seventeen. Yup. They're their two losses away from not making the players. They they've they lose two more in a row in kings win one there the night. Seed Lakers, though were a team and still our team. I think that's going to get better as the season goes on assuming LeBron's back healthy the Lakers are going to jail more and play better basketball. Now one thing about the Lakers. They don't really have an identity yet you watch enough. Laker games, you stay up late night in east coast watch those Laker game. I've watched a whole bunch of them. It's like some nights. They're gonna outscore you some nights. They're gonna lock down defensively they were I think the twenty eighth or twenty ninth ranked team and defense on Halloween. You fast forward you around Christmas. And there are top ten defense. They just they're all over the place with how they play the one constant has been LeBron. He's been great thirty five ish minutes per game. Prior to this recent injury. He was playing every single one. And he's elevating these guys his mere presence elevates. Good players. It turns average players too good. It turns good players to very good. It's a unique ability. I can't think of too many guys elevate their teammates in the weight. Lebron James does now lebrons dot the MVP. Can't happen. Lebron only plays on one side of the ball. He's capable of locking you down for five minutes the end of the fourth quarter. But he doesn't play on both ends because he can't anymore because he's in his mid thirties. And you have to preserve your energy to be able to play thirty five minutes a night at a high level offensively on one end. You have to sacrifice something this is not new to this year. This has been going on for years. Lebron James has been doing this. I would say for at least the last three seasons maybe longer. Maybe the last season he played high level defense was that last season in Miami. But in Cleveland. Not so much, but here in L A thirty as we hit the almost the halfway point of the season. I was wrong. I screwed up. I said the Lakers working to make the playoffs. I think they're gonna make the playoffs and looking at that Western Conference field. Is there any team in that Western Conference playoff bracket that you would say the Lakers can't beat outside of Golden State? Like, nobody's beating gold state everything Golden State's going through right now. Stop stop writing any Golden State is vulnerable story stopped doing it. You're gonna look dumb because at some point DeMarcus cousins gonna come back and play wealth and the buyout market. This is where Golden State gets better. You're going to get like Robin Lopez signing in Golden State, you're going to get like and his canter signing in Golden State. They'll be a player bought out that said, screw it. I'm going to be a ring chaser. I'm thirty some years old. I don't ever ring sign me up Golden State giving my ring let me go off and makes them more my next season. They're going to be fine. Steph Curry's healthy, they're going to be fine. Besides Golden State who else can Lakers not compete with the Lakers have a chance this year of making the Western Conference finals. That's not something. I'd ever have thought I'd say at the start of the NBA season. Never thought I'd say that. Yeah. Paulie? The starting point guard is a forty five percent free throw shooting. How's that going to work in the playoffs when he's handling the ball and it's a tight game? And you could just follow him get maybe one point. And then you go down and get to or we're talking about Lonzo Rondo, they're both you pick horrible free throws. Right. But at least Ron Rondo at least is a tough player who can lock people. Rondo look Rondo is going to get a lot of playoff plan. Rhonda's real thing. Like, that's an actual thing. You saw in the playoffs last year with the pelicans Rondo decides to play in the playoffs. He's a different player altogether in thirty minutes a game. But he's he's actually a worst free throw shooters anyways last year by tick, how is that? He's got a weird shot, but I don't guards being bad free throw shooters. I don't really understand right. Big men. I get it. Sometimes huge fans got the ark of the shot. Makes it a little bit more difficult even big Dandridge, Jordan. What's he shooting for the line this year, like seventy five percent, something like that? Maybe eighty one point is in the eighties. You adjust you get better. Look, it's it's it's a problem the free throw shooting. It's a problem. But LeBron James is LeBron James and his power. His ability can elevate them over Houston which right now is battling. A Chris Paul injury. Shaquille O'Neal's worst season is a Laker. From the free throw line. Was fifty percent. Lonzo ball's forty five percent. That's not good. As my take on that. Yeah. Perla how did the Andrey Jordan? Do this is the most incredible. Isn't it around Hillary stories the clippers might have won a playoff series? If he had been Jordan. It's psychological with them. Not to get too deep into the Dallas maverick weeds here, but the Andre Jordan. When he gets the free throw line. He kind of does what Karl Bologne does your below at the free throw line. He would have like a conversation with himself before he took a shot. The Andre Jordan doesn't have the conversation with himself, but he always barks at a teammate or barks of the bench and for him.

"They will have a run before this is over and then Utah. I I don't know what's going on Utah. But they get blown out at home last last night. My Philadelphia and Phillies really good with Jimmy Butler took them up level. But we saw what happened Boston beat Philly on Christmas day. So my point is that conference is loaded at the bottom. There are sixteen could all make runs at playoff spots. So now drops point these are crucial games. These are going to matter in April. And so you have a four game homestand starting tonight with the clippers who are a five and a half point favorite at Staples. You know, that's their home to write their own too. But five and a half point. And I've told you from the start I think the clippers are a little better than the Lakers even with LeBron. I just think they have a little more veteran depth where Lou Williams comes in. And just takes it over. It's unbelievable. And I liked the way they're playing. I love Doc Rivers, and that's an interesting team to me, but they're going to be a factor in this equation. So can they beat the clippers? I don't think they can without LeBron and Lonzo Rondo Ondo. And then Sacramento comes here on Sunday. I think they could win that game. I don't think they can beat Oklahoma City. And then it's the Knicks beat the Knicks. So that would mean without LeBron. They would go two and three, and that's not really good enough to do what you say they need to do for the long haul because what they accomplished on Christmas was nullified by doing what they did last for set of give you be Golden State in the fashion, and with your d you blew them out and their own and you've got a point lead at a point in the fourth quarter, and you lose that game. So now what you accomplished on on Christmas early Christmas. Okay, now for my friend. Rob parker. I must note that last night. Night the guy that you have called occasionally a bust. Lonzo ball. He was big time last. No he played that was greatness on display. Potential greatness. You saw a guy who I've said all along as he grows up in the league, he could adverage triple double. Now, he's not going to average the twenty plus points on a triple double. But could he go fifteen ten and ten at some point is he becomes a man in the league skip, no doubt. And he has played what was the other game? He played. Well was that the Christmas game? Oh, charlotte. We saw. That game. So he's played some. But they're also the mixed instinct was to where you look at them. You remember the two bunnies? He missed in net game. And there's those nights what he's old for six from three times. Doesn't look even but he made four threes. Remember what pressure was on him? We talked about it at the end of this show yesterday. He was on the hot seat last night. Because there's no Rondo, and obviously, no LeBron and you're up against deer and FOX who has tortured you before. Right. He is torched you in an NC double a game the plate in Memphis second round game when Lonzo was UCLA, and he outplayed deer and foggy into Shannon's point. He took the fight to him from the start that was a different body language. He's got also got a different body because he's put some some muscle. But I'll ask you this skip. And you said he was a special talent. But if you were to win draft that class with Lonzo he wouldn't be the second pick did. It'd be the four. He he would be done. He would probably be there. Mitchell has really had a hard time just you're shooting threes. Would you admit that skip that if you looked at them now after knowing what we know there's no way he would be the second pick..

"I don't know if they're clearly the number. I wanna be clear, but just when the bronze in that sort of playing mode. There is good as anybody. That's not the warriors. They can beat anybody. That's not the word with LeBron doing that. You mentioned all of the good news. He goes pass wilt they win when four in a row, they're kind of really flow and right now, that's all the goodness. The bad news is and you mentioned a key regime. Rondo a fractured hand expected out for a few weeks Lakers operating under the assumption that Rhonda will miss three to five weeks, depending on the surgery decision. The healing process that according to a source. He broke it when he fell on the floor apparently last night. He didn't wanna talk about it. But Lonzo has played well at times Lundu, Lonzo has been less good at others. But when he's been at his best is not a rasmin Rondos not around and look you'd rather have him than not have him. But having Oiseaux as planned be. If that's what he is. It's it's not the end of the world is not is not not having them around. Or having them around means that Lonzo doesn't get along with them. Anything? Like that is just that he's afraid to make mistake because he may be pooled all just plays without a sense of urgency and uncertainty about what his role is when he's not around and a lot of people do that in sports in general when you don't know what the deal is. Because somebody's kinda like looking over your shoulder. Now, you have to look behind yourself all the time and keep is in the back of your head to figure out. Okay. Well, if I make this mistake, I might be gone or I might be on the bench for a period of time. Now that he knows that Rondos going to be gone for a couple of weeks his play probably going to step back up. It's an opportunity more than anything because let's let's say that the the healing process and the decision on how to treat. Rhonda's injury is the maximum amount of time say we're talking five weeks. Okay. And he's gonna miss. I mean, five weeks we're talking past Christmas at this point or right around Christmas. That's when the schedule starts to get far more difficult for the Lakers. So if that's what happens in Lonzo can kinda really do it. You said that. Start to play with LeBron and start to play with LeBron in the sense that I don't have to worry about. Okay. I'm going to get six minutes. Here. I'm gonna get eight minutes there that I'm just I'm I'm playing this whole game tonight or I'm gonna play thirty five minutes. Then I don't have to worry about splitting time with Rondo really start to find that rhythm really start to find that partnership with LeBron by the time that Rondo comes back. Maybe he cemented himself into that position. And we're not doing that thing where it's Rhonda one night. It's lawns of the next. The maybe it's just lonzo's job. By the time that Rondos healed up again, I think they slowed that down though, at they slow the Lonzo Rondo one night, this they slow that down since magic had that conversation with Luke Walton a lot has changed. I mean, you know, whatever that conversation. I don't know what it was. But it certainly has changed. It has changed for the better because the Lakers are on light. Nice little row headed to Orlando. They should pretty much wiped it clean with Miami seven game winning streak we could turn around here next week and be talking about having one seven zero Minnesota, Sacramento and Lanta port. And there's the four in a row that on the heels of getting smoked by the raptors on November four th like, you mentioned these three games on the road. Orlando Miami Cleveland, those are three games should probably win. I know their road games. I know that being is nothing to do in Orlando to Disney remain Miami stuff to do. Come on been there done that he has. But he could tell them to traps of Miami. Most of these guys know anyway. But he wants to go back to Miami in show, those guys what they miss, and then you obviously Cleveland just go Cleveland. They'll just boom deaf. Whatever they're going to do..

"I tell you before the game Derrick rose going make seven Jimmy Butler going make five there's no there's no other. Stat you're going to unless someone else on the team gets hurt significant injury. There's no the status gonna leave for victory for the for the for the Lakers. Listen if a team makes twenty three's and shoots that high percentage going into last night's game in NBA history. They were thirty four and one thirty four and one for the Lakers to win this game was remarkable in that regard. When teams get that hot from three you flatly lose. So why did they win this game? Josh Hart was key. Brandon Ingram I thought played his best game Bouzis coups made at the end of the first and second quarter final play of the quarter. Lebron's bringing the ball up. Looks like he's going to take that left wing three. He likes so much. Get finds coups trailing top of the key three two in the first quarter. Exact same plate in the second quarter. And then add to it in the third quarter. Lebron acted like he was going to do that hit Toronto Rondo hit, Josh heart. The Lakers got three pointers to end the first second and third quarter. And then at the end of the game, I said last week, you gotta figure. Out something for jail McGee because he cannot be playing at the end of these games Derrick rose caught fire and all of a sudden into one point game with a minute three left. And what happened the Lakers got three consecutive off into rebounds. Thanks to Tyson Chandler taps. He taps it out past midcourt. Extra possession taps it off of Karl. Anthony towns extra possession taps it out again extra possession. So even though the Lakers went over three with a chance to turn a one point lead into a three or four point lead. They end up getting the ball with twelve seconds left. You've got a foul him because Tyson Chandler's energy and Tyson Chandler, aggressiveness. That saved the game are also would have been a Derrick rose game. Karl Anthony towns gets off to a great start net. First-quarter Tyson Chandler him and javale McGee HOGAN to four points. The rest of the game that in those tap outs. A huge story line to Lakers winning laughed about it. But now that they learn how to finish out a game. Now that they learn how to play defense. How do you know when this team is turned the corner? I don't I don't think it will be like a car. You know what I mean? I think it'll be a slow a slow curve. And there will be almost like stops and Fitz where you say I like the way they played last night. This is then this is the team. I think once I know who what the actual team is because I don't think Tyson Chandler. They got for free. There's a biology at him. They gotta figure out the point guard spot. Now, like, we know LeBron will ratchet it into full gear the brunt. Played one hundred four out one hundred and four games last year. Played forty two minutes a game in the postseason was peaking at the end of the year. He knows how to control his body to where he's peaking at the end of the season. That's why he seems to kind of be in second year right now. But for the Lakers win last night win rose goes for thirty one and Lonzo Rondo go-to for thirteen combined with five points. They they need one of them to assert themselves. And they need to figure out what the future is for the other one. So I'm thirty forty games as the answer that but over the next. Dozen games. A lot of bad teams. They're getting ready to play. They go on a nice little stretchy. I think this run is going to help out 'specially those young players, but this roster Nick, and I don't believe this roster sin. So we believe that will continue to always still need more time. We believe they're going make a couple of change these favorite guy can take his call. We'll also not really helping out. No, no, no, k of c he. Ace these playing I'll get his name. No, you won't. It'd be like Peter burger the gap between. Gap between bam on the rest of college might be more narrow than you think. Number ten Ohio State look to keep their hopes alive and showdown with Michigan state Saturday seven thirty eastern, then number nineteen Texas goes toasted Joe with sexist tech seven thirty college football, kicks off Saturday on.

"More than a week ago about nine days to be exact. Defense needs to improve offense. We ate the Golden State Warriors. We don't have their personnel. And by the way, can you upgrade that assistant coaches staff. Understand, ladies and gentlemen. See I could be critical from them things some things about LeBron James and all this other stuff. I know he's one of the greatest ever. I know he belongs in a mount Rushmore basketball. And let me tell you something right now, LeBron James is one of those people. You don't talk when he talks about bats the ball, you listen. He's a basketball savant. You listen. I would never go up to LeBron and debate. Basketball with him from a knowledgeable step. I know enough about basketball to challenge him if I think he's lying about something. But I would never pretend to know what he knows. I would never pretend to know what magic knows. And if you wanna head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, you gotta play here and a president of basketball operations here who are savant. Surrounding you. Engulfing you suffocating. You. You must listen to them. And by them. I mean magic because LeBron doesn't have to say anything because he knows magic knows what he's talking about. So magic tells you you need something on the basketball. You're better. Listen. If you want to keep your job, Luke Walton? If you want to keep your child. If you wanna stay working in LA, LA, southern California, Luke Walton and get another head coaching job. I'm telling you right now, Luke Walton and lost his job to the Los Angeles Lakers last year, Michael Jordan and Mitch Cup. Check with a hired him within the hour in Charlotte. So it's not like he wouldn't be a head coach in the NBA. But as much as I love, Charlotte. Does Charlotte North Carolina. Then there's LA LA southern California. Which one? Come on, Luke. Come on, bro. It eight say ESPN it's edited seven to nine three seven seven since I get into Jimmy Butler. Karl Anthony towns in the Minnesota Timberwolves a little bit later. But for now, let me go to the phones. Let's go to Jaden you live with Steven talked to me Jason. How are you? Jay Jay, Jay, speak up. Here. You broke. Go ahead. Okay. I'm just saying thank you for taking my call my calls about the Lakers. Okay. I heard your take about Bradley Beal. And I think that Bradley, okay. Target for the Lakers talking about shooting. You know, he can definitely add some shooting and simply making. But if we're gonna go ahead and trade, I think a better target is obviously Anthony Davis and then a secondary target. I would even take Jimmy Butler before. Stop right there. First of all I loved Jimmy Butler love Jimmy Butler spoke to him last night. Love Jimmy Butler. Jimmy boylans a score who could play both as it a floor, Bradley. Beal is a marksman does a difference A B. I'm not advocating that you take Bradley Beal at the expense of any of those people. I'm simply talking about making sure that you're still position to acquire a marquee talent via free agency, adding that person to LeBron and Beal in Kouzmin in heart. That's what I'm thinking. See I'm thinking, Bradley Beal could coexist with the hearts in the Kouzmanis of the world, whereas Butler would need to replace somebody like a heart. That's how viewing it. But I do understand your point. And I get where you're coming from. Appreciate the call. Let's go to Kevin you lava Stephen they go ahead. Kevin. Doing. I'm a big fan of yours. They can comment on the Bradley Beal situation as well. I think that's a perfect bra. But would you would you give up Lonzo Rondo and keep anger? Well, first of all, it's not that. I wouldn't give them up. It's that they wouldn't be worth Bill. There's no way that you'd have a chance of getting a player to caliber of a Bradley Beal. If you offered Lonzo and Rondo Rondos got nine million dollars is coming off his cap at the end of the season..

"I know you don't you like who's starting every game? I like hard on I like heart starting. I like Lonzo starting Ingram. Javale lebron? That's my starting five. I I actually think that Luke Walton Luke Walton is going to get judge and people say, well what you know, how much of a rope. Does Luke Walton have. I think he has plenty rope. I actually again, I think they're going to get to ten and ten and which is what I predicted all along. But been I think now Luke has Marshall minutes based on who defends and who doesn't the only one who has an excuse to take a pass on defenses. Lebron because he's doing all the work on off it. So you can't take LeBron out. But everybody else is by their man. I don't know. That's like a lazy way to look at it. You can't just say all the Brown gets a path when these kids are gonna take LeBron out. No. But the idea of well if you can't play defense than you're out. Well, what happens when no one can play defense then who's in. I mean, this is a lake. Team that again, you're close game last night four minutes down to your right there. And you can't put it together. Because you don't have the best player in the floor of the best player in the floor plays both ways and this plan on the floor last night hit big shots. You didn't turn if the Lakers are going to get into close games where traditionally in the NBA the player with the best team with the best player in the floor wins. Right. And they're not winning those game. Well, this is anti pocket concerned. This is an interesting observation by you. If you think about these games like I made the point they could have won all of them. It's the other teams closer that has been the difference in Portland. It was Lillard and kiss in both San Antonio games. It was derozen against Houston. It was hardened last night. It was Jimmy Butler. This is where he they're LeBron needs to take over the game or someone else needs to step up because everybody's going to double the Brian at the end of games. So Kouzmin Ingram. Lonzo Rondo somebody heart. Somebody anybody has to develop a closer mentality has the Brian Nayyar. Ano- Rivera has he taken over one game this year has he taken over the game where all the bron- dominated tonight. Yeah. The he the triple double game was who was the win at Phoenix. He when he has one triple double. And that's the game when nobody could check them. Okay. Phoenix. Yeah. That's that's he just basically took over the game. And said screw you said you said Jimmy Butler Lillard derozen. These are the stars of the game who are defining their legacies right now, they're playing for it. You saw the emotion on Jimmy last night with everything's going through Minnesota look out screaming you that he to win the situation Wiggins last night. Yeah. That situation is interesting. That's the wolves on a night like last night where they're going through this terminal percent, no way, they don't because they're playing for something bigger than basketball. And that's been my thing with LeBron right now is I know you're saying he's playing to be the only player to lead three teams to. It's not a motivation. He's got offer having brunch. With Channing Tatum. Mike, he's not playing butlers playing out there polars playing for his life. All these guys are out. I don't think he's he's on that right now what you're statistically wrong. If you look at LeBron's numbers, so far this seasoning look at Butler, right number. So far bronze better the fronts. Historically, good six. Double doubles good this year..

"Davis. He's been great Kerry hairs has been great Jamal Murray's been great. They've won their four-game Steve by an average of thirteen points again. They are roping people. I think if the Lakers on the second I'd Rebecca keep in mind. Denver was here last night sleeping in the hotel waiting for. I if the Lakers win this game with this lineup coups, MMA, LeBron Jovana McGee, Lonzo and heart. I don't put Ingram and Rondo back into the starting lineup back in the starting tonight. Watch coups MMA. Now, it's a big if has it really come down to Ingram or Kuzina. I dunno. Well, unless you wanna go small and take McGee out, but mcgee's been great. Mcgee last night was plus twenty two he scored twenty points in twenty six minutes. He was he's the guy we interviewed after the game. He he was fantastic lane. Stevenson off the bench was but let me let me make argument for for. Lonzo over Rondo if Lonzo plays this good with LeBron. Think of what moving Rondo to the second unit would land. Stevenson was fantastic last night. He had twenty three points. He made ten of fourteen shots. He's just really good. If you have Rondo controlling the second unit and you put Ingram with him. That is a fire powered second unit. Ingram becomes a little more of that group, and he becomes really good. And when coups MMA is with LeBron he just attacks. It's ridiculous. He's he's running full speed. Nobody can hang with them. Lebron's looking for them. Lonzo Rondo is a guy who holds the ball. It's dribble dribble. Right, right. Really? Good pass assist. Lonzo. Just get lonzo's a hot potato guy. Lonzo gets it and gets rid of it. Any normally throws it to LeBron. And LeBron is such a good passer. He had tennis's again last night. Triple double nineteen ten and seven Eddie play the fourth quarter. He would have gotten shirt, and I'm. Telling you, I think this game tonight is a fascinating lab experiment. Denver should win. They're great. They didn't play last night. They've been rolling over the entire league. One of their wins was against the warriors. I mean, they've just been really really good. If the Landers only three point favorite, by the way in this game if the Lakers win it. Rondo becomes eligible to play in the CNN Tonio game. I would bring him off the bench. Now. I don't know if Luke will do it. I don't know what his thought process is. It's a big if if they win this game tonight, but going back to my original premise isn't this season? Or shouldn't this season? Be about who plays the best with LeBron. Oh without question. I mean, and LeBron's got input into that. Right. Right. Lebron knows who's playing well. And LeBron has has said in the past that he he loves Lonzo that he's a huge fan of lonzo's game. I would fully expect and fully expected from the start of the season that Lonzo would become the starting point guard Rondo would become an off the bench. Now you and I have a disagreement. I personally think I wanna see Ingram out there every possible minute. And I think you are going to win that I think that I think that when he's when he's eligible to come back Ingram in that'll be Monday in Minnesota. When he's eligible to come back. I think they will put him back in the starting lineup. But I'm telling you watch. I don't know you're probably be flying back tonight. But when you get back to your place. Yep. Watch coups MMA with LeBron watch how they play together I'm not arguing that Kouzmin is better than Ingram..

"I grew up as a kid. Detroit had a poll. Chat Levin was a center fielder for the Tigers and he knew how to play the poll at a pull out there for fifteen years and is what it is. People just moved around the pole. So LeBron opens up tonight in the NBA on the road against the Portland Trail Blazers, you know what I suspect is that Brandon Ingram will emerge as the second best player on this team. I suspect it's going to take him twenty to thirty games to figure this out. It's a weird roster of a superstar, a bunch of young kids who are getting better and some weird castoffs. I think they're going to by the end of the year in the I think a little overrated west. They're going to be pretty good, Charles Barkley opinion on the Lakers kind of my opinion. I think it's interesting. I don't know what I'm going to get. I'm fascinated to watch. I know there's fifteen teams in the NBA that are awful. I know there are two teams Boston and Golden State that are built to win championships today. And then this the NBA gives me a lot of absolutes. These two are great. These fifteen are awful. This is a big mystery and like Charles Barkley sound Dan. Patrick show. I'm just gonna interested to watch. I don't know how it's gonna play out. What kind of team are they? Are they going to let those young guys play or they go put those old guys out there. That's why didn't understand because those old guys are not their future ball coups, Brandon Ingram, that's their future. So I don't know what the Lakers are doing are they gonna try to groom those young guys and go forward with LeBron or they gonna play those old guys. I mean, I have no idea what the Lakers are doing are they're young team or their old team? And I think that that's what I'm going to be watching for the most. Yeah, I think they're the number one brand. The number one player and the number one mystery in the league. We know who's bad, and we know who special in this league. We didn't. We know the fifteen teams that are bad. We all agree. And we know the two best teams in this league are Boston and Golden State something Houston, but I don't think they're good enough defensively, and I think they're getting old mellows old. Chris, Paul's old I I don't think Houston's better Lakers or the one team in the league. That's that. I don't know what I'm getting. I have. No, I have no real idea. I think I think Chris, Bruce are talked about this. You know, LeBron tends to be a big picture guy and kind of trying to so it together over time. In Cleveland. It was not about the regular season. It was about June, and can we get to the finals and win it? This is the first time in years for LeBron he's not gonna admitted and he shouldn't. But inside he knows we are not beating Golden State unless some something crazy happens. We're not get into the finals. So any adult think he's playing to get to the second or third round? That's not going to impress him. He's he. I believe he wants that MVP award. He'll tie Michael Jordan with his fifth MVP. I think he feels these past few years. He should have one one. One of these years. I will push back on everybody that says, you know, they're not going to get coli and Paul, George, Jimmy Butler. I think what you're going to see happen very soon with the Lakers and it might happen tonight. LeBron's of forward. The second best player on that team is going to become Brandon Ingram, any apply, see it tonight. He went from like six and a half, seven a game to sixteen and a half. I think he's going to go up to twenty two, twenty three. They're going to have to great forwards and a third, Kyle coups off the. Bench and a fourth that they want Michael Beasley who can. I don't know how much he's gonna play this year, but it'll be fun to watch. I'm not sure what I'm getting. I do think they're good. I think you'll get better. I think it'll be a little dysfunctional I'm not sure about the Lonzo Rondo LeBron thing, and that's a worried about that. That's going to work itself out either way and it's a long season. So I'm not worried about that at all good stuff. By the way,.

"Be huge for this team because especially with a lot of the lineups that they have, they don't have a ton of shooting, but they do have a ton of athleticism. Brandon Ingram shooting sixteen twenty two at the rim. So par in preseason, Josh heart is looked really good in other LeBron might be the greatest. Perimeter finisher of all time. And so if they can push the ball hard with LeBron when he's willing Lonzo Rondo plenty of guys who can grab and go, I think that can be one of the biggest foundations of this offense. And it was a question of with LeBron here. Are they gonna keep up that great pace that they had last year a at Luke waldon's be? Has it looks like that'll be the case so far? Maybe not at the end, the games LeBron head on slow things down and then defensively, yeah, it's been pretty rough so far. And I mean, you just wonder, it's it seems like their lineups are going to be either javale McGee at center of each zoo botch of he plays at centre. Probably not that much or Calcutta at center. We're talking about LeBron Senator it seems like they're going to try Kuzma their first and while the impact of centers defensively isn't as high as it once was, it is tough to have a good defense when you've got there Cal or javale McGee as your center? Yeah, I'm not high on Kuzina at center to tell you the truth. Like I'm more pessimistic than than Optima stick on that. On a recent podcast that I did for the Laker film room podcast, we we went into a little bit more detail about that, but but just this idea that coups Ma who is not or at least as a rookie, did not show that he could be a plus defender even at his own position, which was mostly tower forward to now tell him that he's gonna play defensive center, which is going to be a more challenging position. He's gonna be guarding much bigger players than than him. I wonder if that's going to impact his legs as shooter on the offensive side of the ball, even if the Lakers start to switch a fair amount more as a defensive center, you're likely going to be switching onto primary ball handlers and shot creators either point guard or shooting guards, and those are positions where Kuzina is going to have a fair amount of trouble. I think he can switch, you know, some, but asking him to guard bids and then or guard a center, and then. Switch onto a point guard. Those are not playing to his defensive strengths at all. At this point, I feel like and then with with McGee, you know, he can protect the rim and and he had a gain the other night. He had five, five blocked shots, and he can sort of be a presence down there. But so much of that back line defenses is also just going to be rotating quickly in early to even deter those shots at the rim. And and I wonder if he's going to have the wind to play and be as reactive as as he needs to for like twenty five men minutes night versus the twelve or thirteen he was playing in cold state Lassie job mantha. It's really the plan to play him tonight. I think most people thought, well, okay, they're the only son Jill and they're just gonna play him that much. You know, the hill play. The number minutes would play in Golden State, and you know, I didn't even necessarily think he was going to start. And so now he's, he's starting a on this team. He's gonna play. A lot of minutes and you just wonder a guy hit his, we've seen many a time. He could block shots, but his awareness is so bad, and then you've got guys like Michael Beasley coming in as well, who are not great. I think they can get to some very good defensive lineups, especially a flip Ron is locked in, but we've also seen, you know, LeBron just totally checkout defensively did that last year. And if these guys are just making mistakes around him, he he doesn't like being like, oh, ya'll racier mistake. Like we're on the same team. He can kind of get a little pouty when guys don't execute and yell at him instead of just like ought to make this emergency rotation and take care of it for you. And so I think in a lot of ways LeBron kinda defends the way the rest of the team defends its, they're not there..

Zambia seem getting that ball somehow. This is going to be hard, especially when you're wrong car to get into there anyway, I a war. What do you want to start off with the big one. Okay. I want to go with the smallest one, six man. You d that's the smallest award on on the. Both approve, I'm ca- we can go. It doesn't really six men. All right. Let me here. We all came with three people, three people. Okay. Why are you looking at me? Because I'm not. I'm. Come on is some people get the reputation of only coming with four point five. Why are you looking at me? Somebody thought their first name Dennis shoot. Sure. I'll say he was right. He's Terry Rozier. Okay. I had Jae Crowder. He started on now. Joey was baby Ziglar jingle site, three phone, their trade. Their favorite comes off the bench. No, favorite starts? Yeah. He's a starter for them last year unless he's injured that is terrible. Terrible. I won't. I would like him in contravention because when he had that fire, he'd be doing this thing. You probably right. But yeah, they started that big line of like, oh, you when y'all think about six many, the most layer he started for I'm gonna play us. He may have starting to play Jae. Crowder, definitely start from them about regular season. Was there at favors was the starting for sure. Jay credits. That's it. We're pick because he's not a stats guy. Usually when I think of six, many, I'm thinking about a guy that's putting up fits eight twenty off the bench. You know, this is a high value and been score. I wanted to pick IT, but I don't know any going back. He my pick was cools, nobody. Nobody pickles is the six year because I, I thought he was starting as soon as coming out. I mean, I'm assuming he's coming off the bench. I, I hope you're going to the bench, but I just don't know the way their star line of Lipton the first preseason game. That's the way I think they're start allowed to present a look. The rest of the rotation is what a question. Mark point guard with be Lonzo Rondo dependent on injury and everything could save his car. We'll be libra jail. I think that's what they're gonna look like. Josh and he'll come off the bench for now. He'll take five. It's all right. Why be thinking about Brandon Ingram? My brand new, yeah, he is so cool. Cool. I like him south after that boy, waco's somebody thought they second name. Have you just always also also number one, number one? Yeah, He's he's. like every Lewis. I think he's the candidate every is say, Eric, Gordon, those guys are going to be fighting force, spa always. Next next door coach, the coach of the year. Luke Walton was minimal. I haven't as number one about had little walled. I had him because he can eat to get fired, or they can be really good, and he can be coach deal. Brent were Brassey was a steel coach of the year, even though he's been like the best. He's on. Who's your number one, though? Nick nurse, the rookie first year coach listen to this is usually it's for the people that are at the top of the conference, right? Yeah. That makes sense. But Brad Stevens has been like the best colts league for like three years now and you not got any war. What is how is that even possible? I actually didn't have them on my list. I'm gonna thought of this respect that you out. So he legitimately is one of the best cold. I didn't. I didn't want to go with. I didn't want to go with him another name. I had him on this. Greg, Papa. I did too. He got a star. Forty, seven forty, nine four. They wouldn't be in that situation only fifty plus issue, but Brad Stevens should definitely. I had Quin Snyder on my Lewis also. Didn't have brass Steve. That's so disrespectful. Lukewarm Coen's, neither Gregg Popovich. What made you not put Brad Stevens? Like what? Why is one of those coaches. Luke Walton hallway. Rig way. He's he's in the west east. I know. I just feel like the best team out of all of these..

"And then a bunch of other vets that are still worried about their next contract on very short term deals, one year deals. Well, that's the thing about Lonzo. Rondo just happens. Rhyme is Lonzo is the future of the franchise like Magic Johnson is drafted this person in in rob Pelinka, they're vested in him. They want him to be on the team for years and Rondo signed to a one year deal basically saying like, you're auditioning for us. We'll see what happens next year. And at some point I feel like they'll be pressure to put Lonzo in front of Rondo. You can't really play them in LeBron at the same time. No interesting to see what happened. That'd be weird Iraq. I mean to think of of like, hey, is there another non shooting guard that we can get out there yet? Let's get more. But when you just said lonzo's futures team, I mean, you know, like to me now they're already on to the next planet of Lonzo keeps up great, but if he doesn't, I don't. I don't think they're looking at him as well. We spend number two pick LeBron coming here this summer changes any plan you charted with him. Right? I think that's fair. And also Lonzo could be someone who they build up the value of and then dump in a trade for someone looking at the Davis moving on LeBron James was asked about his loyalty to the Lakers and the LA fan base, and here's what he had to say. Expect to you respect and earned their loyalty? The fan base? Yeah. Move to say they wanna see you respect before your deal where you want me to. We talked to them outside of here yesterday. For you deal. I'm here so hit me. I know what brings him say on the floor. I think that this will be the last team LeBron James plays for in the NBA. You feel the same on let his son is good enough to play in the league. And I know you've talked about this on this show and I say, oh, I you, I sent you the text when you said it and I was like, people will just go Jacoby was just throwing stuff out there. No, I think there's a real desire for LeBron to in a situation play with his son if if it's good enough to play in the league, so I don't know if that would be with the Lakers. I think what you're saying makes sense. And I think when Cleveland people here that, you know, even though that this divorce was like, this is like when the kids are older and you can see your parents hate each other ones knowledge and has a kid themselves. It's like, oh, we both thought coming deal, right? Like when you're, you're freaking out going, why? Why do you hate me? And instead the Cleveland divorce LeBrun this time round is all right. But when you. You hear him say that when you're like you're doing one in one's every year with Cleveland, and then you do four with the Lakers. I think that's frustrating to Cleveland fans, but you know, whatever, we'll LeBron you just mentioned his child Lonzo who spoke about also has a child. Let's hear him explain that experience. Inner born kinda hit me. You know, that was the first time I was like when I was pregnant, I was like, but then when it finally got here, it was great. My girl was pregnant. I was kind of like. MacOS pretty kind of like a pregnant gophers pregnancies. She can't move. You got to wait on her hand foot. She's eating where things kids sleep. You're just like. Yeah. I mean, maybe this guy's better than we thought pressure moments. Terrific. He's got the Aaron Rodgers typeface in any situation that tells me maybe he's gonna be great. Maybe has the clutch a love, a love where you went with this. I love women. This is just like, look, man, he's just calm under pressure. That's what it means. He makes. Child, no.

"We don't want to waste any time. We do it every day. This time Jamie, it's called bast for last after almost three hours Colin apparently hasn't gotten to the point yet quit holding out on us coward. It's the best for less LeBron James in about ten to fifteen minutes will make his first public appearance as a Los Angeles Laker former senior writer for Sports Illustrated. We have in regularly on the show. He is there live via the coward global satellite network. Chris Mannix at Lakers media day you. You've been at a lot of these things through the years. Is there like a palpable buzz? What's the vibe there? Chris. Yeah, look, it's it's filling up that's for sure. LeBron James, I man up at the top of the hour. You know, he hasn't spoken a lot clear this off season. So whether it's local national, you've got somebody representing everybody here calling for this this media day. Let me start with this. A lot of people worried about lavar and Lonzo ball, and I saw picture of Lonzo ball this off season. He looked yoked. He looked built up. I'm not sure he beats out Rondo. I think that's a fascinating part of this LeBron situation, the scrappy intellectual veteran who's tough to deal with the young kid Lonzo with the enigmatic loud father. How do you think the Lonzo Rondo thing works. I'll look. It's absolutely one of the biggest storylines of this team coming into the camp me Lonzo ball like everybody in their second year. Jason Tatum did in Boston. Ben Simmons. They bulk up. They get their MBA muscle going in that second and third year of their careers. But Rajon Rondo I've covered him every step of the way in his career beginning in Boston. He didn't sign with the Lakers to be a backup. You can say whatever he wants, but he didn't sound with the Lakers to be a backup. And I reported at the time that the Lakers told him the position is open. You could fight for it and go out there and win it. So this is one of the great subplots how will it work out? Lonzo coming off the injury Rondo coming off a terrific postseason run with the pelicans. It's going to be interesting for sure. What is your takeaway on Lonzo they're trying to work with his shot. Do you think? I mean, I, I never thought he'd be a bus, but how do you think the Lakers feel about him as a player right now? I think they feel really good, and let's be clear for all the circus and the buffoonery around Lonzo last year. He is a really good player. Is he an all NBA level point guard that remains to be seen, but that was a solid a first season as maybe you could hope for with Lonzo ball thirty, five minutes a game played fifty plus games would have liked to see him be a little more durable in that sense, but they knew he had problems with the shot coming in. They've worked on it with him this summer. I think Lonzo has the ability to be a really good player. Can he be a great one with Rondo around? I'm not so sure. You know, I like the Celtics to beat the warriors because I think Boston weaker east will have homecourt advantage. They'll be an underdog, but I think Boston beat Golden State in the finals. I think Houston's a viable title contender. Then I think there's a drop off about eight teams, Utah, Lakers Toronto, Milwaukee, Sixers. I like, am I am I too optimistic what kind of team? It's weird. Chris, I got young kids. I got old guys who are kind of interesting personalities. How does Luke Walton make it work? What is your gut feeling on how the chemistry works. I think there are a lot of people calling way too high on the Lakers as a contender this year. To me, the ceiling for the Lakers is going to be making the playoffs. You know, it's gonna take in the west forty, seven forty, eight wins or more to get there. And rarely, very rarely, two teams that are put together almost wholesale at the end of a season, a report together at the end of the season today come out fast. Even with the guy like LeBron James, you're incorporating a bunch of non-shooters like Rondo inland Stevenson. You got a team that played fast last year, bringing in a superstar who played slow for most of his career. These are all things that are going to take time..

"If we get there, he's saying, I'm a competitor sounded interesting because you know the thought was you ain't going to be the one out to guard Steph. We know you know, you not scared exactly, right. But look, honestly, everything magic sad was accurate. I think I think he said, we're, we tough-minded and LeBron James. I believe it's tough minded Rajon Rondo I think Lance Stevenson is. I wouldn't throw javelin mcgeown there, but he does have to championship, you know? So I think they added some veteran toughness. He mentioned what Western Conference finals. I think that's a high bar because I think Houston is still the second best team in the west, but I think the Lakers are in that group of five that after go to sing Houston, it's Lakers. Okay. See Utah. Portland, Denver is more than five, Minnesota. You can go on and on and Tony saying, no, I say it so that group. So I think that's a legitimate goal to say. We're going to try to get to the Western Conference finals and we'll take our chances and the death lineup. That's not a joke you I like Brian center and at the as the playmaking center better than Draymond. Green is the play making. And then I got coups MMA and Ingram and Casey p Lonzo Rondo or heart. Like, you know. Minute. That's not what. Lonzo's in it are Josh Har, Ingram, coups and imagine them look the king. I got no problem with what magic said. I think it was on point. I think he was respectful enough, but you know, slit it, put a, put something out there for teams. Are you in Bolden by your man? Over to Toews told you have a problem with it. I don't understand what he was supposed to say. He has confidence in his team. He's a symbol this team kind of like it. I guess lead looks LeBron like ours say that when he's talking to LeBron looking in the mirror, so he feels a guy. Okay. I got a guy that could run it now. They don't have Kareem, but they got tough minded player that you know, last eaves and play tough all this by signing LeBron it sped up the process. I'm sure magic was talking three or four years, but that's processed. Got sped up. So now you're on the clock starting dish this, not no two years down the road, three years down the row. You're on the clock this year. So you starting out this, you skip Bayless. It is going to happen. You keep talking about, oh, all this traffic jam Wade. LeBron he need early. He being traffic feel. He'll be the third me like the second sees or third, third horse files you up there. What LeBron tear you. He didn't kidding. Tell me anything. Any done, a press cop. You hurt.
