Fresh update on "los angeles lakers" discussed on FOX Sports Radio Weekends

"Why this time of year is so much fun. And in a world of questions, we've got answers in a world of problems. We've got solutions on that note. Welcome back to another edition of Straight Out of Vegas, the weekend adaptation I'm Bernie Friday. We're comedy alive from the Las Vegas Fox Sports Radio Studios tonight. I will also revisit the newly proposed 12 teen college playoff format that was discussed this week. What does it all mean, Peewee? Whether they bull right past eight teams and straight to 12. What would the brackets of look like? It's a format were in place last season. How will all this affect the betting markets will tackle this is much more and in about 15 minutes, we'll be joined by our Fox sports radio teammate Aaron Torrez. It's time to give credit where credit is due. Two months ago, Erin surmised that Chris Paul, not Nicole yogurt. Was the real MVP. And now I would have to say Cp three is validating that claim after brewing Families update. We'll talk about the latest stories swirling around Las Vegas and check in With the number five out of 15 in our series of 15 NFL schedule ink works for the 2021 season. And of course, we close down the show with Mackin on sports and Mackenzie rivers to stretch your mind and give you the kind of data you only find on this show. He's done some interesting research on how load management may be hurting teams. That when you actually are active down the stretch, you have a better chance for greater performance. Um, less chance for injury. He's got some interesting takes on that sports or entertainment, but they're more than that. There is a shared experience. As such. We want people to talk about them. You've come to the right place. We've got a lot to talk about tonight. This is straight out of Vegas. The pregame show you always wanted. And as they say in Caesar Man, Iago, Minnesota. It's going to be lit. All right. The NBA playoffs have been sensational. I've enjoyed them immensely. I don't miss LeBron anymore than Madonna misses having a boyfriend. These games are hotly contested. They've gone down to the wire you have. We've had to really sort of expect the unexpected. And when you look at what happened last night in the Clippers game, and I give top credit to tile Ooh, Clippers prior to last night, we're all and nine and opportunities to win a close out game that would have put them into the conference finals, something the Clippers hadn't done in 50 years. By the way, they lost those games by an average of 15 point center tile. Ooh! He was 12 and one those same types of games. And now they don't look down with the Clippers. Are this close to the NBA Finals? Give them a lot of credit. I think the tired really started to turn in Game five, when Tyler's shifted up his defense pressure. Donovan Mitchell clog the lane very much create difficulty for Donovan Mitchell and, uh and he not only made it hard for much of the get his points, you made it hard for him. To even get the ball in his hands. The denials were were pretty impressive. Uh, the Clippers. Uh, they're interesting and they're catching five points against Phoenix on Monday. And don't be surprised if the Clippers get in there and steal the wind because without Chris Paul, I'm not quite sure how Phoenix will handle this Clipper team. They've proven to me. They actually have depth, and they actually can play defense there. The number four defense by the way, the highest ranked defense left in this tournament, and They've got confidence and they're pretty well coached. So hold that thought. Now, by the way, let's give some credit to Phoenix to because They're eight and two in these playoffs so far, and if you want to get a glimpse of how dominant they have really been, uh, in the games they've won. They've led by double digits 58% of the time and they're the only team to take at least a 20 point leader more in five straight games during these playoffs. No one's done that since Jordan's Bulls Don't go to sleep on the Phoenix sense. I didn't think he would alright, were quickly on the Brooklyn Nets. I've been singing all along. I've been another shows I've filled in on other shows in During my tenure here on straight out of Vegas. All the way of actions to beginning I never believed you could just put these three guys together and magically Walla, you would become the Harlem Globetrotters and swoop down and when the NBA championship I'm not bashing him, Just call it how I see it. One of the things I said was that in the last 40 years, 36 NBA champions have been a feature The top 10 defense 22 featured the top Five defense if you're scoring at home, and I know you are, well, the Nets they were in number 22 defense and the only outliers since the year 2000 to buck that trend were the 2001. Los Angeles Lakers had a couple guys named Kobe check and they had already won before, so you've got a situation where I always question Brooklyn's defense. They're ranked 20 seconds. I always question their depths. How do you How do you get to a game Seven. I have zero bench points, zero bench points. And by the way, people are saying Well, they were hurt. Okay, I I covered that succinctly. For months, he in case you hadn't noticed the Big three played in. I think eight or 10 games during the regular season and during the regular season carry Irving Mr Handful of games. For various small injuries and then for personal reasons. Okay, but all he has, he was nicked up as well. Kevin Durant missed over a month of the regular season with a hamstring strain, and he actually had a couple of coronavirus contact, tracing related absences. And remember, he's you know, 18 months or whatever removed from that. Terrible Achilles injury. But boy, did he look terrific in without him. I don't even know if they have gotten this far And then you had a situation where James Harden also missed over a month with a hamstring strain before we turn into the lineup with two games in the regular season, and then their hamstring stream came back. We want him, Add it all up, and it was not in the cards. It just wasn't in the cards. So I don't want to belabor it. I just glad that I stuck to my guns. And I don't care if Irving would have played. It would have been something else. I can't prove that an esoteric thing. I just don't think they would have won it tomorrow. A great game seven and Mackenzie now I'll probably break that down a little bit later in the show. Interesting. You've really got to give the Atlanta Hawks a hell of a lot of credit. 65% of the tickets are on the Hawks tomorrow and Phillies minus seven. Their money line on Philly is minus 300 decades of about a 76% chance to win. It should win their 33 19 home this year. Atlanta is only 20 and 22 on the road. But the Hawks there 46 36 as a dog. So if you are an action junkie, and you need some action on that game, fine. You wanna put pizza money? You might look to the dog. I will not be involved Making tomorrow I may fire on the under, but I do like the Clippers. On Tuesday. All right. I want to circle back to a topic that you're going to be hearing a lot about between now the end of the year, and that is the proposal to expand the college football playoff after 12 teams. It's moving forward in terms of meetings, information gathering and progress. Uh, the CFP Management Committee met on Friday to present the concept to 11 University presidents and chancellors. Who will actually have the ultimate authority over the format when they meet again in Dallas, coming up the management committee, which is made up of 10, FBS commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick. Well, they're going to ask the presidents and chancellors to authorize the solicitation, quota feedback and begin the feasibility assessments. These new formats. Now the current playoff federation is entering the eighth season of a 12 year contract that runs through 2025. The bottom line is, uh, it's been reiterated that the playoff will not change this season or next. It could happen as early as the 2023 season and they haven't really talked a lot about the timing of the implementation more about the structure, which I want to dive into here for just a minute. And by the way, uh, I don't think they're going to have a decision on this either before January 1st, So keep an eye on it. I think it's coming down the pike. Uh and I do think that inevitably, it's going to happen for the simple reason. That the year that there were no college athletics for all intention purposes as we know them. There may have been some games. But there without fans, multiple sports for canceled multiple lease cancelled their sports. That created a hell of a financial catastrophe.

"Lakers phoenix suns with an emphatic. Ninety nine hundred game one win that they control from start to finish and you know what when we talk about the lakers. We usually get a lakers perspective.

And everything i just feel like you know is so much more up close and personal for me but when i heard about buddies told me said it was just unreal eighteen thousand although they listed there's about ten six but it seemed like it was eighteen thousand so it was packed. Ready and people were partying outside so fun. Time right now saying we haven't experienced this long time. So we had a kerfuffle and ejection. Chris paul hurting his shoulder and and using a jump shot form. That was clearly not his normal form will have to monitor that going forward so it was an eventful game. The sun's sort of told the world. Hey we're here drayton. i'm here. i'm the. I'm the biggest guy in the floor. Andre drummond bigger than me.

"The start that we wanted Lakers fall to the Phoenix Suns. They they lose this one, the opener of the series, the playoffs started, but nobody told the Lakers certainly a lackluster performance.

We're going to get through the good witch, won't take too long, and then we're going to get to the bad, and we're going to talk about everything that the Lakers going to do is to change for the next game. Coming up game to walk again. Not the way you want to see the Lakers start. But I will say they dropped game one last year as well and two different series and still managed to win the whole thing. So, again, this doesn't mean the sky is falling off. This was not a great start for sure. Joining me today is Ron government and Chris the Masterpiece Masters. How are you guys holding up? Not not particularly great. I mean, this was not the ideal start to the playoffs. They definitely they lost last year in game one.

"Gonna talk a little bit. Lebron some nets you know. We're going to talk all that good stuff so the nba has been really wild. This season right. We've seen a lot of different teams. Come up like the knicks and a playoff team. They got julius randle. And derrick rose. Nick reduce the things you know. So they got the same record as the lakers. How crazy if twenty twenty one different. Wow we're going to play off. How do you feel about the season overall. Definitely some unexpected things Defending champs not being dominated this you injuries on the knicks avenue surprise only causing history. Usually say that there. S shit you. But but they're not as but you know the comes down to of greeting. When was the last time they want championship. I was like the sixties. Wasn't it like willis reed over the years. And they're supposed to be a premier franchise. Let me look at the notre quick to last time they won was in nineteen seventy three. Oh my goodness. That's almost fifty years ago. Knicks some trash and they only have to. How are they considered a premier franchise with two championships. Do we overlooked. This has every. Nba fan overlooked considering them premier because they play madison square garden. I'll just be kermit sipping my seventeen championship. T banh new york. You feel me like always better when you have never lost in la affluent. That's why i never expect seems to be trusted because the knicks have been transfer very long so happy not market drafted will. You wouldn't think they did. It also had to do with the front office putting ratio worldwide west. And leon rose there now. They've been putting together a good squad. I mean julius randle no one ever thought he was going to really blow up like this without. He pretty much reached the ceiling at this point but he has shown another level.

"los angeles lakers" Discussed on GSMC Sports Podcast

"Okay i want to hear from you guys. I want to hear what you guys have to say The los angeles lakers season has been a tough one Lots of injuries i. It was a d. now. It's lebron should lakers fans be worried. Let me know at k. bone underscore sports. Here's where i'm at. Here's where i'm at with this whole thing. If i'm a laker fan. I would be four more concerned about the health of my team in the playoffs. More than being concerned about playing in an actual play in tournament. The lakers will not be eliminated in the play in tournaments. You can mark my words. I will say that again with full confidence. The los angeles lakers. The defending champions will not be eliminated in play in tournament. now they will though they will be eliminated in the postseason and possibly early in less. Lebron james and anthony davis are relatively healthy. That's how i look at it. So how much. Trouble are the lakers. In right now well. They've lost eight of their last ten. They've lost their two. They lost to the clippers. A couple of nights go in blow blowout They lost to the portland trailblazers close but no cigar on friday night. One of the issues is that without lebron james day just can't score. They cannot generate any offense whatsoever. Dinner schreuder who's probably their second best offenses player. Other than obviously anthony davis and lebron james but schreuder is more important because shooter brings up the ball so not saying he's more important than eighty or lebron but when lebron's not playing shooter is their best player to actually facilitate the offense. That's their issue right now. They can't score. I mean they put really good. I think they actually play some of the best defense. If not the best defense in the league and i thought anthony davis played really well friday night. I actually think that was his best game. We've seen of him since he's come back from this achilles injury so i'm not gonna blame the loss on him especially because he's probably not even one hundred percent right now with his back spasms from the night before and again coming off the achilles injury. That's that's a really tough spot in back to back against portland friday night. No the so. There's a lot to talk about the plane game. How much pressure there might be in a single elimination game. But and and someone can correct me if i'm wrong. That's what twitter's four. I'm just looking at where we are in the standings right now and i am having a really hard time. Envisioning a scenario in which the angeles lakers are gonna miss the playoffs the playoffs because they're eliminated in this play in tournament. That is what. I'm struggling with right now. I just don't see that happening so let let's look at this how it is right now. Let's let's take a deeper look into this if they're the seven seat which is what they are right. Now they're going to play the eight seed in the play in tournament. let's say it's golden state. If everything ended today it would be golden state. I can't. I can get the argument from some view out there. You know steph. Curry in an elimination game gets red. Hot goes for forty you you lose that game i get that. That's if the warriors are eight then the nine ten especially with the injury. Pelicans are done they they have no shit was already going to be tough enough for them. To make to to catch the spurs that ten spot now with zion being out with a broken finger. They're done so. The nine ten seats are memphis and san antonio as we speak right. Now are the lakers. Going to lose single elimination games to both the warriors and in the winter of memphis in san antonio. I just have a really tough time seeing that happen. Especially because no. That's going to be that. Lebron is going to be playing those games. We're we're not talking about the lakers that we saw on friday night. If you if you're talking about those lakers then yeah. They could end up losing the play tournament. Now we're talking about that lebron's going to be playing in those games. I have a really tough time seeing them. Lose back to back. Elimination games like that at cave on underskirts underscore sports on. Twitter are the lakers in trouble. Give me your thoughts. Are you worried about the los angeles lakers. If they are playing in a play in tournament. I want to hear from you. I want to hear from lakers fans. I want to know what your emotions are right. Now how are you feeling on this sunday with one week. Left of the regular season time is running out. you know. The thing about lakers fans kept what it just kept being. They're going to get healthy. They're to get healthy. Time is not on your side anymore. And anthony davis. Anthony is really frustrating. Because you thought going into the season they won the title in the bubble last year last lebron even though he remains this ironman. Despite what's happened over the last two months there was the feeling before this seventy two game regular season started right. This was time for. Anthony davis to step forward like this was going to be his season. This was going to be the moment for. Anthony davis to be able to step up. Make a run for the mvp. Become the best player on his team especially in the regular season. And that would then take the load off. Lebron james right. That was kind of the feeling that most lakers fans and just people around the leak thought that that n even lebron mentioned that. This is going to be anti-gay davis team..

"Do fall to the Portland Trailblazers lose by 5106 to 101 which drops the Lakers down to seventh in the Western Conference. That's right. It's playing time. And it also gives the Portland Trailblazers, the tiebreaker. Which means, even if the Lakers do catch up there. Now, one game behind the Blazers for the 6 seed, even if they catch up, if they're even the Blazers still go ahead. So most likely, then crazy things happened. But most likely, this means the Lakers will be in the play in tournament in order to get into the play-offs. Certainly not, where we are expecting this season, but that is now reality for your Los Angeles Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers Suffer Disastrous Loss to Sacramento Kings

"An unbelievably bad performance by the Lakers and a game in which the kings were missing some of their better players, including de'aaron Fox and the Lakers just kind of did what they've done. All season long and turned the ball over too much and just flat-out miss open shots. And we saw that happen time and time again. Let's get into the stands real quick before I start taking your questions and comments here. So the Kings shoot, 45% from the field, not great. But they shot 36% from 3 and ninety percent from the line. That makes a difference compared to a Lakers team who shot 51% from the field and 25% from 3 and 71% for the line. If you can't shoot, you can't win really tough to win games when you can't put the ball in the basket. Again at The Rim, okay? 51% off. You can't hit 3s in the modern NBA. You're in big big trouble in the Lakers again, 25%. That's the game. That's the game right there. If you shoot league-average, even just league-average from 3, you win this game by a margin but instead, the Lakers are missing a lot of their three-point attempts tonight. And then the turnovers 21, turnovers for the Lakers. Again, cannot do that, that's a problem. They've had most of the Season. At one point, the worst team in the NBA when it came to turnovers. Haven't checked it recently, but they are still up there. They've been really, really bad. Turning the ball over for most of the season. They did get better for a little bit there. They got a little bit better. Dead shooter was starting to rain things in a little bit it wasn't being an Optima optimistic password so much tonight that was not the case. They completely regressed in the turnover Department. It got really bad there and then the other piece to this the offensive rebounds 11:00 to 11:00. 11:00 offensive boards for the Lakers 11 offensive boards for the Kings. You can't do that. If you are having a front line that has Andre Drummond and Anthony Davis on it. Plus LeBron James, you have to absolutely dominate unquestionably down, Nate the glass,

Los Angeles Lakers Defeat Orlando Magic to Pick up Much-Needed Win

"Talk about the Lakers getting this win, over the Orlando Magic. We're going to dive into it here. You know, it's a 114-2103 win but this game was a lot closer through most of it than we were comfortable with. I mean the Lakers won the fourth quarter, 35 223 off but up until that point, the magic actually took the lead in the second the Lakers lost the second quarter 4222 It was ugly, it looked like there were in full control. They're up by 12 coming out of the first quarter and then they kind of took their foot off the gas. Pedal in Orlando, surged, they got things moving forward on Thursday and this is the danger. This is the danger. When you're playing up against a bad team when you're playing them and you'll get out to an early lead and then you take your foot off the gas pedal suddenly that team comes up and they get confidence, you get a bad team, suddenly having these visions of putting together their best win of the season, their biggest win of the season if you take down the reigning defending 17 time a champions That is very much a landmark night for an Orlando Magic team that is tanking. Not only are they taking but they're also missing a ton of players due to injury their coaches and even their home because of covet. Don't have their coach and they're missing all these players and you suddenly give a team like that hope. When you come out in the second quarter of the way the Lakers did and that certainly made people a little bit uneasy, and I will say now he's asking Ron government. That's right. Before we, we had our issues. I don't think I ever felt like, okay, the Lakers are really going to lose this game. I don't think that that thought really crossed my mind. There was a few times where I thought. Yeah, if they lose, if they were to lose this or chat is going to go ballistic about that, that was certainly a thought of my head but I didn't feel like the Lakers were ever totally. Out of control. Felt like when they needed to they would flip the switch and turn it on and they certainly did in this one particularly in the fourth quarter but you would have liked to have seen it just go wire-to-wire and beat a bad

Ahead of the Mavs are Stephen A. Smith says Lakers need to get whole Yeah, there's a level of urgency, this kicking and as far as I'm concerned, and the reason why I say that it's not just because they've lost three straight and four of their last five I know that he's traveling with the team. He's been on the bench. He's been encouraging guys and all of this other stuff, but you need him because here's the reality of the situation. We could talk about Anthony Davis being healthy. LeBron James needed to be healthy. That's true, But there's such a thing is chemistry and cohesiveness guys being on the same place, just knowing what each other is going to do instinctually and I don't think that that's the case right now. And I think that the longer LeBron James is out, the more it's gonna affect this team. I think that even if you come back again, I'm not encouraging him to come back and he's still injured. Please don't get me wrong. I'm not going that extreme. But I'm saying in terms of waiting until you're absolutely positively 100% will damage they might need to be when you add 95.

"The Masterpiece Masters joining me tonight fresh off of our home. I've watched party over on hot bike, which was a lot of fun during the game tonight. Chris, how you doing, man? I'm doing. All right, you know. Yeah, we did lose and you know, the revs were hot garbage tonight, like off the people sing in the shop. But you know, a d is back, which is the big thing here. And again, I've kind of like I was saying the watch party. I just kind of went into this thinking bout going to split this two-game series with the Mavs anyway. So we lost tonight and, you know, they made a game out of it in the, in the 4th. But I think the Lakers I would look for them to take on Saturday. So that that's what's getting me through trip. Yeah. And that's just it, right? Is that they we get another shot at this Saturday. The Lakers play the Mavs, again, obviously, this isn't good because the Mavs are chasing the Lakers in the same things, but you can kind of atone for for tonight by getting the win, come Saturday. And hopefully by then Anthony Davis will be a little bit more in Rhythm. Feeling a little bit, a little bit better. We certainly saw a lot of rust but but let's just dive into wage. To start Anthony Davis back out on the floor. First of all was just great to see him out there. What was your impression of his first game back in over 2 months? Well, you know as his offense didn't come to him. I think he was over its first five shots or something like that. So I mean he's got to get some offensive Rhythm. I've seen some people in the chat saying like he was in bad shape. I don't know if I want to go that part maybe maybe just in terms of you know full court basketball conditioning but I mean, what do you expect? He's been out like a couple of months off. I would expect even though he was coming back tonight. I didn't expect him to come back and be in full form. I mean, he was only playing he supposed to play 15 minutes ended up playing 17 minutes so long, you know, it's just one of those things I think we we just you know, ye she is back but we just need to kind of root for his health going forward and just kind of know that he's going to take a while to get in Rhythm. So we're going to have to be patient before we see, you know, the playoff a d so to speak.

"Is the Lakers Nation live postgame show in your Lakers just picked up a much-needed win against the Toronto Raptors dominant performance. The three pointers finally start to fall in love to see that the game got a little bit Scrappy we're going to talk about what happened there dentist router what's going on some, you know a little bit of a confrontation with Coach Frank Vogel all kinds of stuff to dive into tonight joining me is Matt Peralta from lakersnation.com Matt, so nice to be able to come out here and talk about a win especially given the the current situation. The Lakers are in in the Stanley Cup. Yeah, I'm happy we need wins right now. We we need to take them. However, we get them Toronto was one of the games I scheduled that was scheduled. I was like, oh the Lakers should probably win this one especially since they're so short-handed that came out and did just that so, you know, I feel pretty good that we're treading water and that's all you know. I said going into this game that just like the game against the Sacramento Kings because this was a winnable game that inherently makes it a must begin because frankly the Lakers are going to have games where they just don't have the Firepower to keep up with some of these other teams. For example, we saw that against the Clippers the other day but tonight being a winnable game. They had to come out approach it as a must-win and I feel like they did the energy on both ends of the floor the execution and was on a different level and that was so great to see to see them step up coming off that loss to the Clippers. I was really pleased with what we saw will get into all the different players because there were so many guys tonight. Like I'm already having trouble. Yeah figuring out who the next man up award is going to go to and not because like on Sunday, we're there just wage. Many options tonight there were two there's too many options. There's so many guys we could give this to Yeah, you you heard the the players talk after the blowout loss of the Clippers that they needed emphasized ball movement and mad movement. I think you saw a lot of that in the first half especially the first quarter where they just decided to blow the doors off the Raptors by shooting. Well from Beyond The Arc it was really impressive to see if

Los Angeles Lakers Get Much-Needed Win In Blowout Over Sacramento Kings

"Pick up the big win over the Sacramento Kings, they went by 21, you know, what most of the time right at a championship contending team beating the Kings wouldn't be a big deal, right? We would look at this and just say well whatever they're supposed to but given the current state of the Lakers without LeBron without Anthony Davis now without even Andre Drummond sliding down in the standings. This was an important one. In fact I said going into the game. This was a must must win and my goodness. I wasn't sure which Lakers team was a good show up. I wasn't sure if the Lakers were going to approach this game as a must-win the way I thought it was and they did they came out firing. What a performance and let me say this not only did the Lakers need this game. We needed this game Lakers Nation. We needed this one. We needed a performance like this because it had been too long. There was so much negative. Any permeate permeating Lakers Nation? It had been far too long since we've seen the Lakers really play. Well, really put it all together. And of course A lot of it came down to the three-point shooting tonight. They were absolutely phenomenal behind the arc V E 1% from behind the arc 52% if we round up and 48% from the field, they shot better from behind the three-point line than they did from the field not something that happens very often. But still this is certain a time to celebrate the Lakers picking up this win. We know the schedule is going to get tough. We know there's going to be some more difficult roads ahead. But for right now for this moment, we got to take a moment just appreciate what we saw tonight because this was a fantastic performance by your Los Angeles Lakers top to bottom everybody chipped in and he loved to see that.

Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat Remain Engaged In Kyle Lowry Talks

"Today's trade deadline. Now do seven hours away outs. Lawn of the name watching closely. We're watching closely as kyle lowry. Look so listen won't is reporting that the lakers are actually asleep routine to get him in the east to get him out there with the lakers in the east though it appears it's the sixers and maybe the miami heat in that mix. So here's kyle lowry on. What likely was his last game with toronto last night it was kind of weird tonight and not knowing what the next step would be just with. You know understanding that there's things that could possibly be done On the front of me and then other guys in our team and normalization. So it's kind of weird. I'll be honest with you but you know it was. It was great to get a win. it was great. It felt good to be out there. And you know i. It would have been of course. Of course it would have been crazy or if it was in toronto. I'm assuming i i would. I would think but It was it was different tonight for sure. I mean who knows what's going to happen like i'm not knows what's going to happen but it's definitely for sure different. All right we got crisper sar joining us now for sorry good morning which contender would benefit most from adding kyle lowry. You said the three philadelphia. Miami and the lakers less. Toss out miami. Because with or without kyle lowry. They're not winning the east much less the nba finals. They're just they would improve. No doubt were not enough. They wouldn't be good enough all right. So i'm tossing him out. I'll go to the west. The lakers this would be huge because in addition to bringing a championship pedigree more leadership. Defense toughness kyle lowry. Bring three point shooting. And they're lacking in that their twenty second in the league in three point percentage twenty-fifth if three point tips. He's any thirty nine percent or seven threes a game in toronto this year. Dennis schroder playing well but only hitting thirty two percent of his three point attempts so lowery would really feel a need for the lakers.

"Espn is your home of the world. Champion los angeles lakers. Thanks again to rob pelinka. Who joined us today. Met the media. Today was kinda of like media day right. Well it's been media. He calls but today was a big one. Anthony davis is a pretty big one. Lincoln's pretty big interview right. And i think they had like markeith morris. Yesterday they had caruso yesterday have been doing. You know four or five interviews every every we buddy cow. Cousy dudley was on alex was on. While we'll get to coups bahrain. I wanted to pay off tees as they say in the business now. Anthony davis now. Everybody expected them. Sign a contract and people were talking about a one and one or two and one or what it was. Here's anthony davis why he decided to sign a five year contract as a place i want to be. They did a great new donna. Great job on just putting together as as a place where you know i love to be. I'm not hearing the summers now. Living out here for time for the next you know five years so i thought it was just a great a great thing to to go five years in in in embiid here in place out love and and don't plan on going anywhere so no not most And here he is on having no idea that lebron was going to sign. That extension could be honest. I didn't know what lebron had gone on. I know he was on the deal. You know rich doesn't involve me with his bronze contract with business. I found out the day everyone else found out there. Lebron was to forty eight to two forty. I'm so sorry. There's anthony davis. Did you see the lebron james extension coming moment because there were like no roommate on twitter. Didn't come out of the blue. Yeah that really came out of to me. Because i just didn't feel like there was like a huge need for it so we weren't expecting he's under contract for another year and then he had a player option on the your beyond that so it was like you know why do you need. It just didn't see like a whole pressing need to extend him. Plus i thought the lakers and lebron. We're probably. We're trying to maintain flexibility in the summer of twenty nine so lebron having a player option that year actually gave them a little more flexibility. But i'm the lakers are happy to have both of them signed and delivered because now they don't have to sweat anything like you know you win a championship and you can't picture a world in which things go wrong and you're not winning a championship but like right. Now anybody can get hurt. Anything can go wrong and then all of a sudden. Now you're sweating it out next summer with. Anthony davis lebron having player option. So you know you just you kind of have to always think long term about things. Lock things i think. for laurent. it was thirty five thirty six this month. Yup snuck it as much money as i. Can tom thirty eight coming off a championship. Yeah makes i mean obviously aid unbelievably well deserved what. Here's the thing. I mean i i was spouting this theory that Anthony davis would sign a one and one he would opt out. A lebron would opt out that would create room for jaanus to sign. They can use bird rights to resign. Lebron and liana stream is dead right pretty dad. I mean personally. I think that if he doesn't sign the extension. that's a real tough situation from milwaukee. I still expect them to sign it. Do i mean why do you think. A lot of people have passed on the supermax. Why do you think he is going to take it. I think it'll make his life a lot easier. I think also the way. His season ended where he wasn't great last series. You know he didn't. He wasn't the dominant. Mvp he's got something to prove and he knows it like youngest is the kind of guy that he doesn't run from any of that he puts all of it on himself. And i think he really feels. Like i can't leave this place until it's not on me like when the bron- left cleveland. I think he wasn't as much of a fully formed player yet. But he had given them he could and right was obviously just couldn't really put a championship team around him. I don't know if the case in milwaukee. I don't know if he has given them everything. You kanye all right coming up his exploits. It is a national day for something. We all love our really. Yeah yeah national day. Plus at the top of the hour. Why at o'clock. Why kyle kuzma left twitter and that's all coming up in ireland seven ten. Espn gay for those of you. That are following my stomach. Got endoscopy yesterday and you know the weirdest thing about him.

"You can start to see a nice young core and so it's a perfect sort of hybrid of hopefully a team that can compete and win now but also that you can carry forward And so yes. That was part of the architecture. And i said on an earlier call today. I haven't watch much tv lately. But my wife wanted to watch the netflix. Show the queen's gambit with me hatton so we we binge watch that. And and i think for fans of following all the the talk of trades and free agency that the starting of free agency is almost like you know when the clock strikes midnight or in this case it was three o'clock. Pm lou in the clock strikes three. It's almost like playing a simultaneous game of chess with twenty nine other players the other nineteen because they all have their boards. You have your board. You've studied the board for weeks Kind of like the main character studied the russian champion. You know and it's you. Try to figure out what moves. Are they going to make what moves our best for us. And you don't know exactly how it's gonna play out until you hit that timekeeper. And then the game starts to be played but We were prepared And i think really put in hard work and were pleased with the way netted out. But i think ramona in terms of that that intuition to for this particular team we know that defending title is a herculean task and the summit twice aces a totally different experience. That's really really difficult and it's going to have its own set of challenges. So i think of the great. You know kobe interview where you know they're up to. Oh and he's like you know. We have accomplished anything like jobs not finished. And that's kind of how this team feels like we. We noted defend just by having strong roster. We haven't accomplished anything now. We got to put in the work to try to get there to try to get the eighteenth banner by the way strong. Recommend also for me. On queen's gambit may soon ireland seven ten. Espn lakers general manager. Rap link is with us. Lebron james shows absolutely no sign of slowing down at all when a lot of players go into decline. How remarkable is that to you. I mean the a truly unique player that the game just hasn't had guys that can do what he does physically at his size and with his strength. I think you know magic of course comes to mind is a guy that was six nine ten could just pick teams apart But i think that's one of the things that that just gives you great confidence to extend the relationship with him as his game is not predicated just on speed or just on quick twitch explosiveness he's his. Iq is one of the greatest games ever seen with his size and strength in the way takes care of his buddies. I think he will continue to find ways to impact the game at an extraordinary high level Even at this era has play And it was excited. Add a player like marsh markelle soul as well who again. I think with his size and his basketball. I q in some sense. I almost see him. Playing a role like rondo dez. Last year i know completely different positions but rondos an extraordinary high iq players. That would just pick apart. Defense defenses in the playoffs. I think mark is the same. He'll just do it as a seven foot stretch five. That can you know. Play in that vein but I think because of lebron this gifts in terms of i q and then just his his height and strength his games going to continue to be strong for the years. We signed him for rob. I don't know if you caught lavar ball at the draft night. He had a he had had on. That said i told you so. Lamelo was drafted. Do we need to get you one of those hats. Like an i told you so. We seventh and executive of the year voting. But i think it was just like you got one vote. Is there a party you. That's a little like. Hey i can do this job like you know. At some point people are going to recognize or do you harbor any of those feelings. No i i i again i think just my nature and some of it comes from being able to work with great players that i have over the years. It's just to stay true to work in You know. I think when i when this job started One of my good friends said you know you're gonna have moments where people praise your work but don't listen because if you get extremely prideful and headed And that's really bad and he said and if you you're going to have moments of tremendous criticism and if you believe that then you're going to have self doubt and you're not gonna to put in the work and you're going to go down the road of worry and fear and so really just tried to avoid all of that and stay committed to the work and you know when you when you work hard and as we were tired as a staff. The work results speak for themselves. I really i personally don't have a belief in and living to drop individual praise from other people that just doesn't really feel in the up. I my joy comes from if we can do hard work and if we can do a good job and players like anthony davis can lift a trophy and lebron james can get his fourth ring and jeanie buss can be the first female owner and the history of the nba to have title. That's where my satisfaction comes from. I really it's not about what people say. Or don't say about me or what award. I would get an executive or not that that stuff is really meaningless to me. Lakers general manager rob pelinka's with this mason in ireland show moments in for john. Today the schedule is officially out. Do you have any any reaction to what your stance think. We're just excited. The guys have been in the building working individually at the team. Training camp starts on sunday. And you know just.

Christmas day game It's just really exciting to to to see the opponent how great a job the nba is done to put things together.

"Continue doing what they're doing and Anthony Davis if he next year is playing like he did in the playoffs where suddenly becomes more of a a creator of his own offense and does so very efficiently, which are two things that hadn't been there in the past even our future than a creator, which is and he was elite at it but being able to do it yourself as just a whole new level to your game because then you don't need like if teams switching the pick and roll bigger Figaro than work. into isolation opportunities for him and he was able to score on that all day in the play and be top I. think he was second most efficient isolation player in in all the offs So if you can be anywhere close to that next season, E. D. will be rising even more it like another level than he has in the past from a regular season standpoint and ending my expectations are once he'd. Hoping for the title I don't know what their odds are right now, but I would probably like those odds has I mean you saw Lebron James just of Anthony Davis they're bringing back a lot of the other guys we'll have to see what happens during the off season in that might change things but I think the Lakers are in as good a position you can have them being in. The records time back. Yeah. Most definitely Well, Tim thank you for coming on what you have coming up over the next week or two that you're. You're excited about this. You're working on that you want people know. We have all kinds of stuff So might offseason pod. So if you're having to be Lakers fan the Lakers exceptionals in podcasts might be for you. We cover the the team in the League from a data standpoint and from like XS and Os. So during the playoffs that was after every single game here, the place teams running here's how the teams can adjust in in defending differently. Than you start under this. Double teaming that or I don't know switching to like describing the different tactics, tease reason to each other. So more than that chess game if you're interested in learning about the game especially from a Laker perspective that would be the pot for you. We're going to three podcasts a week with. Reviewing players from this past season talking Lakers topics and then also introducing new statistical things from basketball index, which was my site. That is a whole other thing all the talk about MC ten seconds. But for that specific Lakers context. So go check out my podcast. You can follow me on twitter at Tim, underscore, Mba where you can find me tweeting about XS and Os, and had all the time, and then over index give a whole lot of great stuff available in a lot more.

"But that's just kinda how I look at it like there's a lot more to it than just him playing the four five. And his not just like from wear and tear Saint Point. But with what he's best defensively and we saw this playoffs being able to be off fall rather than the low post defender is is more within his skill set in what he wear his like length can really dominate as an on wall posts defender. He's good. He's not really went Howard's at that a off ball. If the Lakers are double teaming up all screen or sang a double team at James Harden or double teaming Yokich in the poster, it's loading the pain up any. Sort of way where you have a to one situation on the weak side, it Anthony Davis is that one guy he can cover both of those players just fine and being able to do that. It's almost like a cheat code because then you have an extra render to throw at other offensive players in little things like that help you be able to play incredibly aggressive against ball screens in against Portland, in the first round or search straight up double teaming James Harden in the second round and playing three all day long being fine with it. Or against Yokich and Denver in in the Western Conference finals sending extra help towards him knowing that you have that dockside presence that can simultaneously be in position to kick off the past. Oh, and he can ball handling dribbled out the other ended score. Deflect passes defendant scrambling recover to that to the one easily on the weak side and also block your shot. If you go to the rim being able to do all of that is a much more impactful use of his skill set than just saying, Hey, we need you to go defend this post player it. It's just not as good of a fit for his skill set in the Lakers recognized that we're able to really unlock fat when teams did play not silo Flyer. Yeah I think the way that I always try and say it's context. You know eightieth five is nice. You can have more floor racing that way but you lose a lot of his defensive value when he plays the four. So I think that's just a really great way to look at it So in terms of looking at a next year. What are your kind of expectations for the team and just Kinda preemptively high this season Mike Oh. My expectations are I at this point I would have them titled Favorites. We have yet to see what teams like Brooklyn or the warriors will look like having coming back from injuries that I mean Katie. Might not be a talk to you play any more top fifteen said if we'd look at what the type of injury that he had generally those two guys that's still really good. We there are just so many question marks that you have to give the Lakers the benefit of the doubt With how little might happen free agency with teams being capped out already that limits the I think the off side for some of those potential contenders to add more and catch up the Lakers. If we look at team's ability to suddenly morph into being able to fight big or small just just from my perspective looking at the free agents. I was like Oh if we don't get to white I, don't there aren't really many of as out there that can play that white role that we don't have to pay much money that can really easily go sit on the bench for series or come out in be your big man to defend Karl Anthony towns nickel Yo yoke. Sure. WHOEVER MIGHT BE IN THE WESTERN CONFERENCE? Joel embiid. Or who else in the East I duNno there aren't as many of those guys elbow. So I think the Lakers will be able to.

"Yeah I would agree with that the flexibility I think it's really the key and playing small isn't always the answer you WanNa play small when you're benefiting in some way from now it's it's all situational dots with the Lakers were able to be is postseason by having eighty is there like normal five? Or if they wanted to play bigger, they'd have white in there because he is truly one of those bigger guys that's GonNa kill you on the boards. He loves threat He's protecting the rim. Well, he is their big big. That's going to be able to defend the post really well, and we saw that against Denver be really valuable, and then on the other send on the other side of things you can have Marquee Morris out there and we saw devel- Maggie kind of follow the rotation. On because he's not the Dwight replacement, those aren't the same caliber type of guys. He's the ad type of big man in only in terms of. Like when you're going to play him in in that like that sort of role where he's not going to like he's not, he's he's the normal large guy. He's not the big big center. He's not your small center. He's kind of in between and eighty being better than him just ended up replacing those minutes in kind of kicking him out of the rotation, which is fine is developing chew up minutes in the regular season in that provides a ton of value. Let's eighty not have to go through that wear and tear of the regular season playing center So I think there's value there I think it's like you said, it's pretty overblown the the discourse on what? He plays in what he's willing to play. He's made it pretty clear that in the playoffs he'll do whatever they make the team win in the regular season he preferred to try to preserve his body especially for guy who has had injury problems at times. I'm okay with that and just the flexibility the Lakers had to play big or small, and the fact that they're able to pay guys like DJ availed..

"So I I, I have my thoughts but it'll be different. I'm glad to see that they're they're working towards the Dow, and hopefully, what do they try to approach it with the right safety procedures in place and? One thing I'm really interested to see is if they're trying to limit travel, will they be? Let's say the Lakers play the I. Don't know the Kings four times maybe maybe five or six I. Don't know what it looks like. Let's say point four times instead of having one game month of the game another month another another month if they group them together in two series at one home, and then maybe later in the season, the other two games together, I think that's cool that as a little bit more of the tactical games of the regular season than we normally see now if. They try to go even a step further and especially with how the are located might be able to do. Okay to shoot Games in Sacramento immediately followed by two games with the same two teams. Suddenly you're creating almost a playoff type setup with mini series, not in evil team to be much more tactically focused, and instead of just you know we're GONNA play offense we're gonNA play our defense because it's a world wind of who we're GONNA play every single game you can really zoning it focused on. How you want to approach playing specific team, really get to know them in dig deeper into some of the cool parts of the game to me that are that are more fun to analyze where we're gonNA defend his ball screen one way his Wall Street another way it really gets more into that chess game. So we normally see that maybe we'll see that next year I'm hoping so but that'll be something to that. Yeah no that's a great point and I think what you believe. It was youth we earlier about How could impact Houston It's kind of like like you mentioned like running the triple action in college football I mean, if you only seeing it one week out of the year, you're not as well prepared for it but if you're playing somebody four games in a row. I mean, statistical variety hurts Houston in smaller sample sizes because they benefit when they in the regular season when people can actually hold on what they're doing in Tryon, subvert some of it it makes it harder for them to win. And also. Do a lot in terms of just bodies I think that's what I'm looking at you. I wonder how injuries you're gonNA play a factor. A lot of people pointed out there like you know I mean. I, I mean talking to some of the trainers around the NBA. What the talking about with injuries and and fatigue. I'm definitely curious to see how things work out because this I mean the hiatus that wasn't really a real offs. Or Lifetime offs far as I'm concerned I mean I know these guys were still working their asses off and probably going like way harder than they would during the regular off-season because they're still waiting to get right back into a regular season. So I feel like a I don't know it just having this extent season going right into a short season like this. I'm definitely apprehensive to see what might do in terms of injuries and fatigue, but overall I agree I think there are a lot of really interesting things that could. Come up with variety and and ways that that team plan I do wonder too like you mentioned if teams with continuity could really benefit from from not having a lot of turnover I mean, like you'll get a team like.

"What is Papi man alive at Bishen of the real ones podcast slogan, Murdoch staff writer at the Ringer. We got Raja Bell was probably man we're coming up. We're talking about this right after the Lakers have won a twenty twenty title in the bubble, their seventeenth overall Lebron's fourth overall. What is the biggest takeaway right now? Raja mean the Lakers. I, they were my pick to start the season. I'm not sure about yours. It seems this doesn't seem like too much surprise, right? What do you think now? They they were might pick to win a title and take for me is like you still don't bet against Lebron brought did just despite. You know what a season may look like the ups and downs of whatever team he's on whatever they need to sort out chemistry. Wise. At the end of the day you don't bet against Lebron. Yeah and I think especially in terms of this series, we see this against stars all the time where a team will challenges star right when you see that when we talk about Kobe when you talk about M J and when you talk about any star down the line. They will challenged. But especially in this in this type of environment but I don I wouldn't even when they were down and when the when the Lakers it seemed like all they were having a bump in the road still didn't think the Lakers were going to lose the series and again you do not been Lebron James and he showed you tonight, right? Yeah. No doubt and look we came on I don't know after game four maybe and we were critiquing breaking down and we had the discussion about who you take in a half court set to get you a bucket right and and I took the four five six people over. Lebron in the half Kazusa over Lebron. James. That is catch nobody. Saw Go could have been MVP tonight. By like the the Bronx the great what ones doing even when they're pushed and challenged is they realize where they need to be better in the next game to make sure that they get to where they want to go and you saw that like he was able to get on transition which really help. But man, he was a monster and half court like think about the three point performance in game five and tonight. It was just like I'm bigger stronger. I'm getting to the rim. Let me just showed the rest of this team how I'm GonNA conduct myself tonight. And people follow I. Think there was you could tell the Lebron was different from the onset his game he was running faster. He was way more aggressive. Coast to coast he was. This is when you know Lebron is engaged when he can kinda. He could smell blood and you could see that early on. I don't know why I think he would have done this all series they would have swept him. There were swept the heat, but but he he he went to work tonight. Now he went to work the whole look. The whole team was locked in ready to go and you could tell like the defendant was a defensive move to through three quarters until they knew they had it in a bag like it was a they were pitching a perfect game they were Anthony Davis and Lebron everyone. Had, an, extra pep in their step even the guys that don't affect the ball at the rim like the crusoes Casey. Peas. And Danny Green's Rondo like their defensive assignments, their attention to detail like was. So on point they weren't they were rarely ever caught slipping and and letting someone get a shot off like they were really really locked in which is, which is really really important. You know in a game like this and they wanted they wanted to get it over with but that effort. In that's where you'll see Lebron's age right like it's it's not realistic that he's GonNa give you that efforts or every night, or he's going to just not have enough in a tank stretch and that's why the that's the beauty of a de ray on the offensive end of the court. It's someone can give the ball to when he doesn't have to exert that effort all the time. When you you said, you've always said during this podcast how star players set the tone for the rest of the team when they play well, other people play well and I know that that's like we'll Duh but I In the sense of do you think that this was one of those games where everybody just fed off Lebron Anna de tonight it seemed like one of those type of nights when. When when star players go good everything else kind of falls into place. Yeah. I actually think tonight wasn't necessarily case like it. It could have worked out like that and maybe it looked like that but I thought you had. Like Rajon Rondo and and and Alice. Caruso. And cast like that, not that the Brown wasn't appointed a was an appointment. They had their own energy like they were. They were there. They heard all that crap date that Danny Green Golfer miss an ass shot like you know what I mean like. Dan. That's their brother. Brought US another role player. So guys were guys were ready to rock and and it doesn't hurt when you star players going. Great. Well, let me ask let me flip the question on your. Jimmy Butler and I WANNA put some respect on Jimi. Jimi was Jimmy was an absolute beast. He wasn't himself tonight. He didn't give you the offensive performance or defensive performance that you were accustomed to seeing from games four and five, right? Yeah. Do you think that the rest of the heat like the you know what I'm saying you asked me do does does a team follow a star I would argue. That Jimmy was out of sorts, and that's why the he was out of sorts, but it certainly doesn't help the rest of them for sure and I think Jimmy played in a Lotta ways out of his mind a couple of times this series right in. The. Lakers to their credit just really adjusted to him because there was certain things down the stretch of game five where you know you just see bad screens from the I mean by a bad pick and roll coverage from the Lakers down the stretch that lasts that last play down the stretch where Jimmy Butler is going to whole and there's a foul on a d. and that's going into game five. You see plays like that where The Lakers just weren't all point as they were tonight right and they play the pick and roll. So great early off early on in this game I think it was more. So of that the Lakers is finally getting defensive effort and when you do that against Jimmy Butler, who I think is probably in the second tier of superstars right now think that's fair to say right I don't think he's in the one where where he can just adjust and. Just. It doesn't matter the other teams adjustment. I think that's more. That's think that's what happened. Tonight as opposed. You know Jimmy designated bug as I think that the Lakers just really played well defensively and he is not the Tier One star that can make the extra adjustment to to do that. Yeah. That's the look. That's what separates you know the the superstar from the really really really really good player right is your ability no matter what the defense does. To you to persevere in and and you know fill the stats sheet to the tune of your team needed. Phillip. You know, Tony. I had a great point like I thought he looked like he was worn out like Jimmy Jimmy. Butler looked like when when we talked about Anthony Davis being Lebron's kind.

"Let me as a coach. What do you think about guys? Have an option to go to the G. League to go overseas for a year But what do you think of that? That option in general I think is a great option for guys man. Not Everybody's for college and then I think you know coming in and doing these kids a disservice. A lot of them come for one year And whether they have great success or not you know where to leave your program in a year and then. I'm not saying that will get you know wanted done. But I just don't think best fit for for us. I mean being academic university what it takes to get here you know in the type of student near the commitment that you had to take responsibility that you had to take up to this point. Just be able to come to this school. Does you're gonNA leave that in the year just is not a right fit and we kind of want to separate ourselves a little bit a little bit tougher. I Walk in the gym and say okay. Then I love his game. He fits into what now you know. You gotTA check his text score. GotTa get a transcript. You gotta get those things so I think For us a little bit different but for these kids in general. I think it's a great great avenue to be able to have options. You know if you're not again not school for everyone that you don't feel like I want to go to college and work toward a degree to try to better myself I can do so. I know my path is to play at the next level at the NBA. And I can do something there to really enhanced. My game helped my transition be a little more. Seamless why wouldn't I do that? And I can get paid for. That was not pretty lucrative deal That was able to secure. You know through the G. League and Then integrate city been in La I think it's a lot of creative ways that they could could could play this. I mean I think that salary could possibly be a part of their first year salary right for ten because we all in business together It can make it a little bit more lucrative. All you get the undergraduate adviser that gives these guys that's coming out in the draft where we're potentially you get dry. Ns a pretty good group. That's giving feedback to those same numbers of telling guys were there. Slided you know could help you say okay you slide it in a one to fifteen you get this amount if you slide it fifteen to thirty you get this amount. You know thirty forty five. Give you decided to come this route. That's where you'll be slighted and that's when you pay scale and possibly could even get paid your rookie year. Right was getting money now to survive. But it'll be deducted from where you get drafted and if you don't get after we just have to sit back and think about creative things like that too because I bet on both sides of with our players union and now those players G. League players go hit some representation. It's going to be kind of funny to see how that works to represent these group of Info High School. I guess because Energy League now and they're going to have to fall into that representation which I think would be good a sense you. You have history in the G. League as a coach talk about the developmental process. You had with Toronto that that you instilled in guys that you see now playing out in with the raptors yeah state man development is a is a huge part of Oliver Game. You know all these guys are not finished products yet. You See. The best players in the game is still had to come into the league and Learn League Learn how to work probably never worked at the level a habit for him and they thought they working high school. They thought they worked in college. Now it's you know these guys livelihood you know so you can't come in and be something that you treat or something a right you gotta come in with the passionate of saying look outward people because this is what I wanna do for a living so I think just from you know from standpoint. You GotTa make sure you're ready to work so your older brother played in the NBA correct. Yes how are you before you beat them one on one if you haven't beat them yet? I mean that's my alley had to stop playing man. We will get into fights boy got you. I know it was bad because he was such a competitor is the great great score And and I was I was young bride and you know quick off the dribble and and all that so it got pretty testy so we just gotTa make sure we were on T. I mean on the same team team two to five five and whatever but now we were super competitive but the now man we we have some battles bro. Enough for sure. Now are some of your players. Are they aware of you know your history? Like Kirk Snyder Christian Laden are they aware that like listen to what coach says man? He really he really not the one to try try. I think you know you can chalk that up to being young and you know and and hopefully we all mature had those moments but man. I think it's good. We we know who we are arming. Think our guys I mean they got to whatnot and pretty sure they google millions and seeing some things that I'm not that crowd of but at the same time I think it's all comes from being competitive man agree like you know there's nothing personal. It's not one kid one guy that I've ever gotten into like I hate. That guy was all stemmed from something competitive and then hopefully in August those type of guys that I i WanNa win you know I want. I want my team to win. I WanNa beat you knowing that if you know that other those guys on the other team if they had an opportunity in the choice to say okay. There's no happy for me or don't have it for you. They will say it's going to happen for me so we gotta have the same mentality and But back to your point man about to declare development. I we got a little bit but I think it's huge. I mean that's part of development Development competitiveness and. I think you know through that process. I was able to work with you. Know these guys just be no Pascal Fred Vanfleet nor empower. Those guys those guys that were sent down during the G. League you know part of the new development for them and they came down with the approach working right over those guys that were holding a head down because they were sent down to delay came down to show. You know I got no business here right. I belong back up with the big club and I think that was the way we approached. You talk to them how to play still come share the ball do what we need to do defensively because we were you know in a locked in. I wanted to approach things for that organization. So I think that's that's where it starts. Man is being able to have a plan right. Not COMING IN WILLY. Nilly but really having a plan guys. Weaknesses are what their strengths are in charting. Those things so they can see improvement in hopefully Do over the course of time. You start steer gradual improvement over that time. Now you talk about developing competitiveness which I interesting because you look at a guy like an Andrew wiggins and that appears to be the biggest knock on him like he doesn't always WanNa be there at the Anthony Edwards coming out at Georgia. It's like those always when he floats a little bit. Do you think competitiveness is something that's inside of you or do you think it's often that you can kinda develop and draw out of a player. Yeah thank you can think. Is You know some guys have it right? Some guys you know for whatever their background growing up things that they did At the park some of it is in you but I think it can be taught at the same time and through your work. You know come. In and being diligent you know and and then steady you know saying being consistent everyday coming in with that with that mindset You you know once you just to build like there's GonNa be a habit where those guys is not really in them. They're going to quit right. They WANNA WANNA stop. But we're not gonNA stop you know saying he can relate. You know we're gonNA keep doing what we're GonNa do it over and over and over the monotony of it. The redundancy of it is what makes you good in makes you when it comes to. The game is second nature so I think that process of doing things like that every day and having people around you do that every day. And you can build competitiveness and maybe not to you know to the level of a guy to just you know what I'm saying. You know this guy was heart and breathing and you see those guys right get up. They're gonNA fight you cough everything but I think again having proper technique and and the wraps you know that you you you can get guys to compete at a level other than than what. They just have innate ability. What would coach Stack? Tell Rookie Year Stackhouse. What would be the first thing you post yourself up on man out again. I just if I knew what I knew. Now right DICTA again of reps every day getting them you know at the at the practice working on your your ball handling all the things that you just don't have enough of again. I'll come in playing power forward to North Carolina. Pretty much played a forward in high school and in college right. I really was a guard. I never had to handle like dad play. Pick and rolls until I was in pros so those are the things that I kind of learned on the fly right in thought and did that level door. I became an all star at it. But that's not start when I was nine years old as a point guard right guys that were five five eleven in all of a sudden they you know they jump up to stick six right. I'm Kit Taller for my size. I was kinda thrown under the basket as we know is key is. We're at that time if you were six. Thought YOU WON'T BE A center but I hate it as much now. It's like you we. We try to guess that we kids now you know. Probably some of those big land begins needs to be on the basket that veteran out to the three but I think a happy medium there right. You still had to get those kids at six five early. Still teach them ball handling skills. I think those are the things that I would tell myself to. You know to work on. War got better as a shooter. Just because reps I can probably had going into college. Might have two thousand fifteen hundred reps going into the pros and then they say what mastery is ten thousand so I got. I got eighty five hundred reps that I gotta put in to get to where I venture. Goddamn right this time. Shot at the shot repetition. Doing things to the where I became in more than in a mortar average shooter but I had to work to get to that point so I said those those were the things that I probably would have focused on a little bit more and you know that I you you came into like playing the mid range shot was like king you said you played for. There's a lot of two point shots so you've really got to see the development into like this three point crazy. We're how do you? How do you balance that as a coach Man? I loved the three right. You know and like I said my game that I played you know for eighteen years in the NBA. I would hate it my game so interrupting the offense to try to post up off the block at the time played on that low again of play. The man's ball. Yeah we got a really rapid out about driving three. Everybody else spaced out above the the free throw line used to have like it was legal defense to where you were in above the free throw line so I mean it's it's just a different game so you have Roman staff balking ice. Oh and do all those types of things but now it's just you know the game has changed more freedom of movement more office and like I don't discourage the you know the two point shots again. I think it's time place for everything like you get a great shooter. They run you off the line and there's only three or four seconds shot clock or even less than that. 'cause you get one dribble pull up but I said there's eight seconds on the shot clock. That's put a little more pressure on the basket again. You know get into the paint again..

More reason shit on the Dream to an Kobe unaware away. I saw that they teased on where he folds into the Dream Team. I think it's gotTa be six. I'm guessing I don't know 'cause like three or four related till good better decade Robbins Rome's bet like ended at eight so if they do five and six get through like Dream Team and Kobe. Coming into the league like okay. I could see that. Is that like a does that. Relevant to the ninety eight bulls. We're GONNA find out. I guess like if you're talking about like all of it I could see like the competitor stuff or like challengers Magadan like this kid was. He was good he was nineteen. Like I'm in right now like yeah because as all time is Kobe is. It wasn't like he didn't enter the draft like Lebron. Three people knew him and even more so on the basketball world. But it wasn't this national hysteria. Like Oh my God. This kid's in the draft. No it was a thing where I do remember this at everybody. Who had like seeing legit? Seen Him was like this guy's going to be great right again. There's not that much information about how schools out there at the time. His legal right. I was trying to think if he came up in the mix tape era like his book so different than like just the way plays like he had dunks of course but like jab steps like what is this You'd have seven minutes. Said that draft express violent on just like footwork post footwork. This kid is in eleventh grade. Terrify speak three languages yet. Kobe's running teammates in the walls in like races. Like a be right. I don't need to be in the mix tape air. That'd be on to also think completely just because you brought up that music. I really respect how the NFL draft still uses like the Chris. Berman highlight music Yeah now when when you strike gold. Yeah now it's quite the tune but here in that for two hundred sixty over money picks I didn't get sick about once as a classic instrumental I still. I kinda want Roger Goodell to host more things now do you everything just Jose market sweet but Roger Goodell chopped magic host. I would just watch the.

We're doing live coverage. I thought it was only the ones I got the Sad Shit Bay but then I was like wait a minute. Why DOES IT EXIST? Who was marketed? Russillo and Simmons. Dr Better sound like those pieces on like College Game Day. Do really well people started. So it's like I get it but it's because it's like nine minutes of a two hour show not yet every minute of a three day show too that credit but I do remember that last year too. They were like they're trying to have a broader appeal one. That wasn't as deep into football as much which I can understand. Especially if like you don't know like if you. Never Watch College Football. You have no idea about these kids like sense of from. Baylor like that's not going to do anything for you. Do get it but based on how they decided to handle it this year. Don't get it the thing is you remember like I wouldn't remember Elliot remember him you know. He lost his parents.

Where does this a list of Tier Wego champions all of them? I'd much prefer that because I had eighty is I just know. It's just a glut of UH Lakers that magic rookie year. That was over the Sixers de next year. Celtics win over. The rockets eighty-one next year Lakers win over the sixers again the next year. Seventy sixers win over the Lakers. That was eighty three eight three and then it starts. The Celtics Lakers play eighty four eighty five and they split eighty six celtics. Take over the rockets. Then it's late yet. Lakers back to back back to back booze and then everybody goes back to back. Really after that to write the spires Spurs Blinds but never went back to back in wild. It is what I can't believe that I still think back about. I can't believe that he team only went to jam. Beaches in my head always give Lebron four and every town Mike. Now he's only got the because I feel like I remember maths loss spurs losses. The were they just got rolled. That's like I think it was. It may still be the highest margin of victory in the. They were blown out immoral halfway through like game. Avoid I got nothing for you. It was game too. I remember being like will. Surely heat are gonNA figure something out the game four. I don't think they're gonNA figure anything. Out was the cramp game. I think that the heat one and then that was pretty much. It turned into a lot of videos. Like Lebron Twenty. Seven eight. Nine like is really twenty. Seven eight nine hours later. That's how the final sucks. Yeah but yeah. I remember the champs after that the eighties. That's eight but Pistons get there like appropriate Greg. I can't tell you for dynasty but is damn close congrats now. Listen they added. They did a great run of it. I didn't realize the sixers made that many therefore yeah and I. Yeah they one eighty three and I think Barkley was eighty four. I believe so which thinks it. Here's like the fifth pick right after Jordan right now. The barcodes differ draft was eighty. Redraft that Jordan's for sure. Eighty eighty four okay than Barkley was eighty five eighty six now. Here's two picks after Jordan. I'm right sometimes too. You know I'll be there. I'm thinking of that The other bag. We don't talk about how you compare him to Barclay. Well listen I remembered somebody took. Mvp OFF Jordan. He's actually. He's the eighty-five draft thirteen. That's who I was thinking will not happen again. That's that's hand up on me. This was part of why they call it. Obviously it's Jordan game the talk through a Barkley being that that right in the top five Anthony Perkins Is where it gets that. Like argument for the greatest draft of all time stockton too. I also always forget this guy named Devin durant. Who's in this draft? That's very funny. Incredible Hey Jerome. Kersey was in this great literature is that cow roaches POPs. Holy Shit I'll be them whereas a scrolling Down Greg. Wiltshire went number forty three second round to the Bulls and I was couch or that used to play Kentucky's pops sure is the Gonzaga after lot. Yeah Transferred Kazak. Only you and you alone would be like the Kentucky Product. Listen now he being videos for Kentucky he no worries Brands Butter. Smart reptiles seventieth pick way too many pigs. It's absurd for twenty two teams. Get Out of here. There were Kevin Willis mistrial at two hundred twenty eight fix for Anita Eighty three standings. Let me say how many teams you WanNa guess are in the League. I think it's like twenty. Four Z like seventeen eighty-three. Nobody came into timber. Wolves right timber. Wolves magic like eighty they next seven eighty eight. I think yes as of right now. There are twenty three teams eleven twelve hundred West other twenty four kicks in this round so some of that. Yeah okay well. Let's see WHO's next year. This no bullets way older than that. Now Yeah this is it still Lebanon. Twelve somebody double duty. Oh Yeah Philly's got to fix like wow why are they adding an extra pick in the first round picks that is twenty eight thirty teams twenty four thinks the lottery back? There is to see who got the bonus pick starting with like I gotTa Clean Shit Up. Are you kidding me? Well then the second round it goes to the forty seventh picks allies bic. So they went right back to twenty three. That's a it's got to be like a note on here like somebody ask idea. That's very bizarre. Chaos philly's got to pigs but if while famous I sixteen picks the strong. I don't know if Probably what ninety six many others can make that claimed owed three three hall of famers in the top five of this Affects VP's pretty good? Yeah you could argue one guy should won all of them awhile. Correct Melvin. Turpin the Ledge Kevin Willis. Nice all remember Kevin Willis as being really old correct but not he was that deal like didn't realize it you play like twenty years average like a twelve and eight over twenty years which is impressive. Even with the later years bring your average down here is eighteen is sixteen in. Nineteen ninety-one Kevin Willis boy. I sorted this draft by four P- no hit me. Jordan was not one Jordan is one stockton's to with like a healthy lead over Charles. Three Akeem a distant fourth but I was looking for. Kevin Willis 'cause you set them if forty seven in Orono he's GonNa negative one warp. He played twenty one years to tally at negative. One Bam my twenty would have been even Steven Devon durant's ahead of them. What the hell. He's forty I understand what that means. Because I'm looking right now. I let me see yet. Hit from nineteen eighty six to nineteen ninety five eight nine seasons average sixteen points ten boards on fifty percent shooting again. That's a hall of Famer negative Pay You like this is not eighteen will was he just defender something. I these defensive rating numbers on kind. May I'll I'll I'll be honest. Neither is offense. Okay now listen to advance. Numbers Wills was terrible defensively. That's where it brings down his value. He was a negative two point one for his career box. Plus MINUS NEGATIVE office. Andy Defense never mind actually just a fucking opera. Bartlett was the ninety four draught. You before knows it really gets them. Hall of Fame.

"Bom man say Lakers poor Michael Jordan Oh yeah so we. We talked about this earlier while we were waiting for an interview. We did mud bill. Seven has come out at stake. Seven's already co signed it and I don't have any qualms with Russillo Bill Simmons said Dennis Rodman nod interesting. It's a tate. Listen I listened to it. I went after much. Yeah I listened to it and now they're both heavy on that side of it. I just very much disagree with them. Do they have any good points? I'm trying to basically. It was Russillo point. He did originally bring it up but the point. You know what somebody says that you're like okay. I'm listening like make your argument. Somebody says up. And you're like after that I'm out. After the way he treated him in San Antonio I was like okay never mind I I get it. We just see this differently. He's like are you kidding me? He's going to decide to take a forty eight hour vacation and this is just this is just funny. I'm like extremely wildly Mike. This is if he did like a forty eight hour bender every month. Maybe if this is a one time that we know of like over eighty two game. Okay if they just call it. Those load management now right didn't say you know what I'm saying but yeah. He missed a Friday and Saturday game. You'll be back to vegas the hawks. It's someone who's so in tapped with like the league right now so worried about mental health as well they should be but Dennis. Rodman was so in tune with his own. It was like listen. I need this for my own mental breakdown and like IOS line someone at Midcourt and none of that's like an incredible thing to self diagnose and Bill Simmons like a bum will also like I don't know what happened in San Antonio but it might have been a thing where it's like. I've been trying to get this for Like you might see. I think y more just confirms it. Now they have one way. It's it's a successful way right. But if you're not in that way while they traded him for like Wilbur do like they just wanted him out of there but yet once he said that he was He also was like A. I don't guys to turn it off and turn it on. In the first person he mentioned was Rasheed Wallace and I was like I'm out. I'm out because I love her. She Wallace I get it. I what you're saying. He's received was unhappy in Portland and then he left. And he's just a Mr great teammate. In Detroit in their champion now and everybody's okay with that might listen. They were jail blazers. Wash it again. Just be stuck in a message waiting. Don't WanNa be I don't and like there have been countless guys. It's like Oh if you just got him out of that situation I'd Betty aid thrive and then they do like. This isn't like a thing that happened like once. Every forty years Vince. Carter about to make the hall of Fame Office. I'm he hates it to his credit concert. He hates men. Scott the Simmons. The again Russillo was the the main but just to go immediately to Rashid. It's like interesting when a guy was a better scenario. Blake better right I like my only gripe is if you sign a contract you don't like meteor like immediately. I one out that is kind of weak but mentioned it so those were the two once he said those two things I was like. Yeah we're just GONNA disagree. Here he was like nothing is robins like the misunderstood guy he was. We didn't learn anything new about Rodman which I don't disagree with that I didn't know nobody knew this Vegas Story. I don't think now in general but I I didn't learn a whole knew about the bad boy pistons but I still like to watch. I'm yeah I mean he looks like ESPN. This was when they did that. Three par Celtics Lakers series. No Alert Shit knew about that any out anyone other than me. I didn't even complain. I was just like you all that I was sick to watch but it was like okay. And he's like so he's he's I'm so misunderstood as I okay. So he's on Barbara. Walters explain yourself on just percent stood. I dye my hair and all this stuff. Like eight and book is Self Barbara Walters. Right like Anna. I see where he's coming from we've just onto completely opposite sides but those all seem like even more like. I don't like this guy. Not even defending like he's not interesting. By which again. We talked about a little bit earlier. I respect that much more. They were like man. I just like I just don't like did they. Rubbed me the wrong way. I didn't like them. Whatever Oak. I get that right but if you can say. This guy was part of two dinosaurs The Pistons a dynasty. Like back to back and it was something I think Simmons set back to back at a time when nobody it was like Russell. Those Magic Lakers with only gas to go back to bed so going back then and the way they did it like they went. Through the Celtics Bulls Lakers in the same year and lost two games that entire postseason so but it was only two year run. Also whatever whatever you whatever the run I mean they didn't even win the second most titles in the eighties yet like the end. That's the thing is a dynasty right. Whatever what what's the closest you can be a dynasty without being a dynasty Well that's what I mean like. They're his there a notch above like the cavs team that won at once the other Pistons. Teammate WanNa wants the oath Celtics. They're knowledgeable but I don't know without say said I would go. Would you call the Lebron heat a dynasty now right so I would also nobody? I don't know if anybody ever has a run like that. Like Celtics Bulls Jordan. When he was Jordan. Right Lakers and those previous two years. I think they want eighty eighty nine eighty six. They lost to the Celtics in seven. I think like the eighty six like best team ever lost. Offers Finals Eighty seven? They lost to the Lakers in game. Seven of the finals. So that's one of those right. They were like very close to heaven. Three maybe four like who knows that they play the Lakers. Well who knows they might have three of four or six in eighty six. They were to beat. The rockets rockets was upset. So but and eighty seven. I think they went to seven with the Celtics that year. Too like they were going it was. It was a true. Like changing hands is what I'm saying. They went to seven loss. I believe they went to it was six or seven one and then lost the Lakers. And then they got over that next year Pass that year. They were Super Radio and I talked about the it was like the Pistons thing. They're kind like underappreciated into psych. Ma like you went up against like the Bull Celtics Lakers. You beat those guys. You get your credit but you also weren't those guys so you don't get that credit is what it is at the Celtics. What one three in the eighties? But we're in what five like Elliott Elliott with the Lakers. I might add win and lose those. You got to the end The six at the right time In the eighties. One okay. Gherman banker that I think it was eighty three. That was that was the eighty fifth award event and I think it was the year before they got Barclay. If I'm not mistaken I thought it was eighty. Two eighty three the Lakers beat them. Yeah let me. I'm checking right now. Let me make sure. Because I'm Donna. Okay they okay. Eighty.
