"Phoenix suns and other team. That's going to be up there. Like right off the bat. Because they added like javale mcgee landry shamet so like most of their course still intact so Do lakers are gonna have those tough games early on where they are going to be like struggling to figure themselves out where they stand in the pecking order because the west is going to be a monster like usually is. But i feel like if there's a team that's going to start picking things up as the season goes along going to be the lakers just because of all the new pieces coming in on the lakers. Coaching staff. Also completely new to david physicals coming in john. Lucas third is coming in You know line. Holland's left jason kidd left so there's a lot of movement within dot to try to get sorted out so things are going to have to like. I think we'll start figuring out who the lakers are like. Hopefully by christmas. That should give some you know a two months time in to like see where the lakers are standing compared to the other teams health is obviously may be the biggest part because of the lakers. As are they going to be durable Can they make it work. You know like there's not a lot of young legs on this team. How do they balance like rest and lower management and things like that when they get you know to the very tough parts because under the lakers have a pretty easy schedule like the first couple of months like they don't play as many top opponents being started take a turn like in march and as season goes on and they start to play like all the big teams More often so. If there's any time for the lakers to make mistakes is going to be early on just because of the teams are gonna to play like another play a lot of like the lower level teams early on in both conferences so work your struggles out then and be prepared because amnesties is not gonna be good would of course we never Injuries will turn out in like shape things as the season goes but just giving what we know on paper. The lakers are going to be the team. That as the season progresses hopefully the source things out and makes a late push And hopefully finishes like a top three seat. I least that's where. I kind of have them if everything works in their favor. Yeah i agree. The team definitely needs to finish app. Three and i think i would have them there right now but like you mentioned. It's i think the way that. I look at the lakers too so interesting. Because we're not the way i look at them just like in looking at them. It's interesting because like mentioned last year when the ryan ad went down or even when it was just. i mean like they both missed significant chunks. And there's a lot of inconsistency in the rosser That team is bad as the offense was. I think they were like bottom five in the league for like a fifteen game stretch. They were clear. Cut the number one defense in the league. They had that hang their hat on. I hate that issues that cliche statement. But i didn't have anything better but like you knew that. That was their blueprint. That's how they won game. this what they did. The team is so different compared. To how how that's looking we just don't really know what the identity of the team's going to be yet..

"It really depends on where you go. I know like just recently. Report came out that like rich. Paul was telling agents chicago. Combine that ad james. Slide up position. I don't know if that there wasn't any details if he meant in the starting lineup. Because if you start those two than you have way more options to in the three To go with because what is going to be the guy at the one But let's say that it is russ the gap at two. Did james davis john jordan. Then you have to get somebody that can beat that glue guide to like be who can have responsibilities as at three on both ends in bays. Moore's one that fits because if you put wayne ellington there He's he was like a forty two percent viewpoint. Shoot on six attempts last year with detroit. he's your best three-point option but bays more can still do it at you know at a forty percent clip last volume. But he gives you that better defensive production six four but he has like a seven foot wingspan in that you can saw anywhere Unabated one can play the two to three. He had some like ball handling duties when he was kings. Two years ago So you can. You can like give him some stuff with that but in in terms of the other guys. 'cause like the lakers pretty heavy now You know is not gonna start. I don't see none as a starter but they paid him the most money out of any like you know new lakers. So he's going to get minutes. I don't see it as a starting option You can make the case for a monk. But the thing is he's not there defensively just yet And he could just be that spark energy score off the bench. We just don't know yet. There's just so many kings the will will have to work out just because there's so many guards by based more out of all the options is the guy that stands out the most because of that to a of talent. Yeah definitely. I agree and he had a really good year with the warriors as well. He's sneakily still been a very good rotation player Portland he wasn't as good but also like they asked them to do way. Too much in portland so i don't really blame him But yeah i agree. I feel like at least to start the year. I wouldn't be shocked if he's starting or i beat kind of fact if he wasn't starting would be a better way to put it But you brought up monk. He's so interesting. Because i do think i actually like him. A lot. rotationally on defense. I think point of attacking us to get a lot better especially part of its size needs. Get better and screen. Nap to But he does make good. Plays off the ball which i like But it's interesting. Because like i think this team they don't have same too many ball handling would be the wrong way to put it like halen. Horton tucker is better with the ball in his hands. Elite monk is better with the ball on his hands. And ideally has bonus to i envisioned him as being the guy who is. You're you're hoping is creating some some shots for you with the bench or in bench lineups. In general and kendrick nunn was able to play a bit more off. Ball when Us with miami. But figuring that i was going to be important especially playing alongside ross and lebron. Lebron can let guys book a little bit like we've seen that But it's interesting thing. Colorado fits into like white permission..

"A lot of a lot of the time like he does tend to get injured often This year especially the lakers. Don't have that guy. That can space before with davis the same time like that. Center like marcus. Old is gone. You brought in dwight howard in gandara jordan but both are going to be in the same roses. Howard jill mcgee played from nineteen twenty which should be fine but you know. In the case davis gets injured. There is no guy in the front court that you can really rely on to bring that type of production Trevor reason anthony are going to be big guys to play Minutes before but again you know they're tailing off towards the end of their clears. Anthony thirty seven. He's not a defensive guy anymore. He's just strictly mainly shooter. Now are catching shoot shooter. That is He can't know he's not as athletic when he's guarding smaller guys anymore. You can only guard big guys not that great from the three point line anymore either. So davis he's going to be guy if he can stay healthy He's to proved that or he doesn't leading to prove because he's done a lot but he needs to show again bounced back from last year. Defensive force on the defense is going to take a little bit of a hit because guys casey p. a. coups improved in that role last year. Caruso is gone. so you're losing these guys that kind of helped fortify the limiter so when a de- gets challenged you know there's going to be challenges now for eighty to like help. Weakside help the guards that are not as strong defensively in the perimeter On data and so davis is going to be that key piece because he's the strongest in the front court and the lakers. They prove that you can still win with a big team In davis is going to have to be that guy again this year and beyond that deep level that he was years ago. Yeah no i totally agree especially looking defensively Like you can. You can definitely see the blueprint of what this team wants. Two years ago but then again i would also bring to like Dwight has taken a noticeable step back from when he was then and that's not even to be rude like he was still a fine rotation player last year but in the playoffs he was borderline unplayable which is different from where he was in in the bubble. Run the andre jordan. I'm not sure what to make of the andrea. Like i think you'll be okay in a smaller starting role. I'm excited. Imagine he'll start center depending on how things go. But i think we look at it in the same lens of like okay. It's an innings eating bigs who just give you more versatility and allow you to play bigger. Give you the optionality. Go smaller when When eighty comes on at five. And i would also say to you like just the anyone who does have concerns in the front court like this team is almost definitely going to get the best biopic you becomes available where i should say definitely will like. They're going to be in the running for two or three best guys. You get bought out so i'm not as worried about that. But like you're mentioning. A watt really hinges on. What happens with a d I think where some other stuff becomes a little bit..

"Lakers did a good job of bringing in you know shooters for on the fly in like maleek monk in kate bays more in wayne ellington. Those guys that should help westbrook. James davis accomplish the spacing the spacing woes. I know markle leaving. Kinda messes up but westbrook if things work out especially with that. Big contract is showed or needs to workout. I think everything should mesh. And i think in the end. If you know if this is the year for the lakers the the roster is completely different compared to every other teams left. We definitely have to figure that out. But i'm looking forward to the whole trio getting onto the court working out. You know the wrinkles and then see how things go play playoffs. Yeah i think the biggest thing that pops off from your especially just honing in on russ like you mentioned i think. That's what is most intriguing about this coming season because in okay see you as always In terms of usage and and ball handling he was the guy i mean. Obviously you have k. d. but like the guy running offense was russ. I don't know if that'll be entirely different in. La like i think the ideas okay. Well maybe running more of the offense but cutting out some of the shots he tends to take but at the same time like russ's i think what thirty two thirty three now So it's just like it's a big ask. Is this going to happen. You magically going to become this fantastic cutter. She has the physical pools to do as the court vision. And do it Just does it happen. Same thing defensively. Like we know he can handle stuff if he's playing at the point of attack he's fine but if the screen or You know what is he doing off ball like they're just the questions that come into it but i also think you look at it and i don't know what i wasn't as in tune with what general consensus was on the happened. I think i've been more in lockstep more..

Never thought i'd see the day Do you like the lakers bringing in deandra jordan. Nice good line janna listen. We're still getting the edible arrangements in the sheri's berries my for apologies that were from the audience last week. But you can feel free to send more to me. And by the way if you're feeling generous include kenny atkinson who lost his job arguably because he saw what i saw in fall which is de'andre jordan's not great at the old basketball anymore and now the nets finally admitted as they say. Hey you can have deandre jordan in detroit says no. We don't want them feel like what did we include six million dollars. They're like us. Don't want what we include for. Second round picks like okay. We'll take him and then we'll ask him to leave and now the legs are gonna take them. So i i understand that folks probably expect me to say well with lebron on it.

Los Angeles Lakers Could Fill out Roster With DeAndre Jordan

"Just give us a little on. What you think's going to happen with andre jordan was traded to the pistons. Everybody's yeah he's going to be out and that means he's going to be the next guy that the lakers will go get what do you say i think he is I think they're the most likely team to get him But there's just. I never say never with bio guys even because this is kind of been the rumor for three or four weeks at this point That this happened in brooklyn and it was just a matter of were they going to do the bio for him was he going to have to be traded. I if it say brooklyn a whole lot of money the fact that they they just save millions of dollars on their luxury tax bill by doing it this way. Also nicer de'andre like deandra got that because he was part of the kevin durant kyrie irving initial big three in in brooklyn and he was just. He's friends with all those guys. They played on team usa together and he was essential for them in signing with the nets. A little while back and it was a him signing that he gets paid twenty million a year that is not his market value. They overpaid for him. In the beginning as part of a like a sign let sign kevin durant and kyrie irving and it was you know finally worked out that way but at some point you make so much money and your they have a lot of guys at that position but they you know straight into detroit. They they They're going to do a buy out. He's going to give back a little bit of money. Detroit gets four second round out of it so they get something And also some other some other complicated salary cap things but we all thought lamarcus aldridge was going to miami. Last year on the market he ended up going to brooklyn so until he clears. Waivers and intel other teams have a chance to approach the andre. I wouldn't i wouldn't say it's likely or expected or anything like that. I would use much more. Vague words. you know. He fits with the lakers. He would fit in that role. I think would have a pretty well defined role and if you're on the buyout market and you're gonna sign for minimum like that's what you're looking for is someplace you can play.

And only the greatest showman in show business and tv for espn stephen smith. Our you sub man. How you doing man glad to finally be here. I'm thrilled to make it happen. You are out in la. So let's start there you talked. I was listening to you on. I take a few days ago. Talking about russell. Westbrook in the amount of pressure that's on russell westbrook. But tell me about you know how. How do you think he fits. Lebron how what are you looking for him. How does he have to changes game or does he have to change his game. Well listen. I think i think both have to modify to some degree. Lebron can't be as ball dominant as as he has been off making all the decisions. Because that's one of the reasons rusting wanna be in houston anymore as you. Well know Because he didn't want to be you know sitting on the sidelines. Playing the role of spectator being on the plane and roller spectator watching james audit. Well that's not gonna change lebron james. He's happy to be back home. He's happy to be la. He's happy to be on a title contender which he is on. We get all of that But in the end he still russell westbrook in you know credit to him. You know like. I told you we've had to be. We've all had to be critical of him at times. What we know that. He's an electrifying talent. The most athletic point guard we've ever seen in nba history. We know he's a walk in triple double and we also know. He never cheat to game with his effort when he's out on a court it's always one hundred percent and so when you look at the slow. Almost snail like pace that the lakers could could. Could you know what wouldn't prone to plan towards playing at at tom's in the past and now you've got somebody like russell westbrook all of a sudden and lebron having a night off. Ad having a night off isn't as daunting as it was the previous two years. I think that helps them during the regular season. And then i think once the postseason comes whatever it takes to win is what i think the character in russell westbrook and lebron james will do.

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.

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

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.

Harold, Who's the guy that got off the benchmark assault, one championships all over the world in Toronto in the MBA? World championships.

"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.

"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.

He went for 41 tonight. His points in his rebounds didn't matter. It's what he did defensively. And by the way, Frank Vogel, I think good move starting more. Keith Morris. Did he give him big numbers? No, but going small and keeping a D at five. Keep that defense in the second half.

"Punch, and we had two poised to get ourselves out of it. And you know, that's the sign of a team that won a lot of close games to your point, and it's one of close games in the last 34 years, watching that whole sequence happened. To me watching it. The Los Angeles Lakers believe the Denver Nuggets, We're going to fold. They believe I don't they believe therefore the game, But they believe in that 20 point lead whittled down to three. They firmly had it in their mind. Yep, they're going to fold. And each time they thought that the Denver Nuggets punch them in the face East time they thought they had the Nuggets on the ropes. They hit it with the 12 piece combo and got off the roads and ropes and stayed alive. The Lakers had this arrogance about them. And if I'm on the team, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, I'd be pretty damn arrogant to but that arrogance almost had it cost them early because they probably went into it. And then when he got down to three, Yep, they're going to fold and the Nuggets didn't do it. Whatever lack of respect, the Lakers may have half of nuggets going into this game three that better be out the window. This team believes they should be up to one and not the Lakers being up to one. They should have had it coming out of game, too. You know where the Nuggets had them beaten. And it took that 83 at the buzzer wanted to go up to Oh, Tonight was an effort game to me Friday. And then the Lakers showed you know late in the third early in the fourth About midway through the fourth. And then that's when the Nuggets turn it back on again. But you look just like a rebounding, rebounding his effort in my opinion. Denver had 44 boards tonight. Lakers had 25 Anthony Davis. Now I'm not saying Anthony Davis didn't have effort tonight. He did. But when you're 6 11 You have going into the four minute mark of the fourth quarter. Zero rebounds, Not one You. Freddy had as many rebounds tonight in that game as Anthony Davis did. With four minutes to go in the game. That is amazing. Now. I mean, I don't know his butt on the body or what it wass. I have no earthly idea. But you would think when you're a guy like it was like the brow. Rebounds going to fall in your lap at some point, right when you're that tall that aggressive and he was me a like he played hard tonight. I'm not saying that he didn't A lot of other guys around him did not. And If you have to have more than a two man show. 44 to 25 when it comes to rebounding. In the brow. Doughnut. I think you finished with 22 both defensive. And oh, by the way, Grant God bless you more. Scott bless you write for the Nuggets. Give me a player, Freddie. In the bubble, especially in the playoffs. That has lifted their brand. More than any other player. Jamal Murray. Well, there's no player in the bunch, and he does not exist. Ain't even close man. Jamal Murray is making himself a household name right now. There is not a player out there that has Taking their game tall for get ahold of the level means in a hole in the stratosphere. During the play offs, then Jamal Murray has the Denver Nuggets. This was superstars of attention. Superstars do where they have those kind of moments, and I firmly believe Jamal Murray learned so much from last year. Where he did not have a terrific game seven matter if he had a bad game seven that have been an improvement against the Portland Trail Blazers, where they lost that game at home in the Western Conference semifinals. It could have been very easy for a guy like that, to maybe have too much emotion to get better and be motivated, But he's been able to place that motivation in the right spots when they need it because the Lakers look that Devon said. Hey, We're not going to let your kids do to us what he did at the end of game to where he single handedly brought that team to a one point lead twice and almost old game too. For the Lakers Lakers NI called. No way. You're not doing that tonight at Jamal Murray basically said exactly there. You go out of Oi! Two points in on that one. But Mama is that he did go. I got you. I'm going to take care of this. He did with his defense. He did it with the shot he did with his passing. But more importantly, when you want to be that, dude, or you believe you are that dude, you act accordingly. And you have your game back it up. We've seen that from Jamal Murray what he did, leading them from a 31 deficit. Against the Utah Jazz and what he did against the Clippers when you're able to do it against those bras, Got LeBron 80 riding Rondo. Three guys will be in a basketball hall of fame. And in the last 2.5 minutes, you were the dude. There's no doubt to your point building his brand on the way to build your brand. You come a big and moments when it looked like your team is going to give a 20 point Lead away and be down three. Nothing in the series. And as for straight talk, wireless, no contract, no compromise. He's infant Simmons on Freddie Coleman. Thanks for joining us on Freddy and Fitz Simmons. And I guess that's about to hang out with us here. Thanks to show a pencil performance line, waiting on that wild Game three to Denver one in the Western Conference finals, 8887293776 and the Lakers may kick themselves with doing this to motivate the Denver Nuggets before Game three. That's next on ESPN radio.

"The Los Angeles Lakers in the midst of a come back right now against the the Portland trailblazers wanna wait one oh two eight minutes left in the fourth quarter and what is been a another emotional night in the NBA it started with a virtuoso performance from chi re Irving who put up fifty four points on just twenty three shots credited mob mentality after the game pointing to the sky as he walked off the court and of course he was very close with Kobe Bryant you see some of Kobe's influence on Tyrese game and for for all the complaints so may have about Tyree as lebron James just hit a super deep three to pull the Lakers within three curry you know it hasn't exactly elevated to a team in a in a bunch of facets but he has won a championship he has been fearless on the court and he's one of the best scores that to ever play you know and you can't accuse the guy being fake and he's been very authentic since this happened and and just had a tremendous performance and of course it's the kind of thing you would credit as as being done for Colby but that that's dumb some some strange territory to Wade into and I touched on this earlier because there's a level of expectation being put on the Lakers and then I'm not sure is fair or that should be applied in the event like this because you know if you're gonna honor Kobe Bryant I mean of course I re did it I mean you put you under him by eating at the highest level you honor him by being dedicated to your craft like he was you can't control the outcome and to make honoring him about a result just doesn't seem fair in in doesn't seem reasonable to put on the Lakers shoulders lebron shoulders or anybody else's shoulders now but lebron as answered the bell at at every turn of his career and he did so again tonight as he took center court before the Lakers game against the Blazers to address the crowd I mean he's the only guy that we would expect to do that I mean no one else you know was in a position where we were wanting them to do that but it was lebron James who did that tonight here's what lebron had to say before the game against the the Blazers as he addressed the the staples center called me a brother to me and from the time I was in high school to watch him before the given his league at eighteen watching him.

"I feel like that's i think the biggest thing but like you say you you know now. I feel like that's one thing the n._c._a._a. Did praise and say at all because i hate that's one thing i'll give them a little bit of praise on it making a process. It's a lot easier for you. Guys go through that process with so many stipulations on their end says not great getting a little better with some of the things things with that process and also cheating the players a little bit better every time i go back. They got some nicer shit that ship so in that in that aspect of it. It's gotten a little better but still you know they. They gotta find a way to to to make it where it should be justified before. We go to deepen appro so we we grew up in maryland. We kind of grew up maryland. Fans grew up on the old a._c. So a lot of battles <hes> tyler hands were always struck me as one of those dudes. You never wanna play against them but you you love him to be on your team psych. Not what what was it like playing with them being co captain with him it. That's exactly as we described <hes>. He's one of those guys 'cause <hes>. He's very good at what he did is is awkward but he got it done he gets he gets right hook off and he was. You know he's a chip. You guys edgy. He's gonna do a little dirty work. His dominant florida lose balls. Dang which you know <hes> you might catch elbow or to you know what i'm saying the or three so you know he said you remind me of a kind of australian rugby players. Yeah you now most australian guys in our league kind of chip. A little bit and tyler was very similar very intense. Though <hes> first year he probably party little more but after that his freshman year i see him out much. He didn't go anywhere he just focus on body ate healthy <hes> it is hard to do in college man. You did everything in the right way and that's why he was drafted thirteen yeah worth man. He was a worker. You know he just he wasn't like like i won't say. He's a low i._q. Guy but he was one of those guys that thought the game you just play and it was good. Nobody works so hard and that a put them in those top lottery conversations. Yeah sure i used to hate. I hate him. Growing up in maryland maryland tonga hate him girls. He killed teams to kill teams. You'll love just 'cause. I mean people because nobody likes us. Gain looked like high socks well. He's got like thirty. You don't like what he's doing doing it but he's he's doing. It is maryland's in the big ten now. There's not the same maryland go back in the s._e._c. because for them. It's is not the same because every day now. It's all about the football money or something like that so that's what it change it but they just need to put the a._c._c. together. Put oh big. He's back together and it's called crazy. That had a broke that up the big east was legend man. I committed to big east and i got into to whatever got it now. It's always heated. You wanted yukon. You got creighton. I wanted. I wanted uconn. Notre dame crane rain xavier butler no program but they're not on the same level as left syracuse left. Go down to a lot of it. Just wasn't decide the old big east with something else. It was something some legendary games and watching six over time and in the garden man now is he talked a little bit about your mentality just determination resilience. Now you talked about bringing you played twenty games with cavs got waived barely twenty games. You're really took for two guys to the injured at one guy have a baby on the court. <hes> i think mo williams i'm just hurt. He was hurt in booby gibson. His wife was pregnant you and had a baby came back. Halftime must was over so the game ended that a game or a situation like that so you want. They got waived. Spurs claims you <hes> than six days. After you got way again again then went to the g. league <hes> the reno bighorns not played well got the the d. league deleted that time thank got i called back up to the spurs with their g. league team and his talk about your mindset yeah like like oh one one in one year would break a lot of people like you know what like this is for me to say after game waived once you know an especially twi going somewhere getting wade goes somewhere for six days and again waived again. A lot of people like you know what fuck it. I don't start questioning themselves yeah question himself go overseas. You didn't kind of talk about your mindset on the emotional motion. Rollercoaster was kinda crazy. 'cause you're like man. I'm at home. I'm cut from cleveland's like dan. What do i do. You know this feeling i ever we're team leaves. You go somewhere else you stuff uh-huh in cincinnati. We had like a preseason game then. I'm like working on chicago's call. This is wendy wild snowstorm <hes> but then trying on a figure out you know and then you get call san antonio i work. I went pretty good second workout. Then they sign you are back in the league. I'm good five six days later. You cut again mccheese with the house and then yeah home for a couple. More months man think the biggest or the toughest challenge is i was managing your emotions your mindset but also the motion the mindset everybody else around you yeah because you make everybody around. You is relying on you. You know your family's. They're worried they're doing this. They'd china's still keep all that stabilized with. You know paying bills. Take care of this. Take care of that while you're not in the contract with the team not known if you were going to get it on again that's rough. That's why overseas thing called the beginning unlucky enough but luckily my foundation around me. I didn't have have a bunch of people around me that support and <hes> you know they were great with you. Know encouraging me and tell me you believe in me that deserve to be there. You know don't don't overseas aziz on give it up. You your opportunity just they keep working. <hes> stay positive and you'll be prepared when it comes so i continue to yeah workout at home in new york <hes> when you try to find extra time to work out and anew eventually i'll get an opportunity short short lived lockout came to just just stay in shape and the continue to make money because still managing everything else <hes> overseas <hes> but it was a win win for me so it was a hell of experience a very humbling experience being another country speaking of different sometimes getting paid not paid <hes> traveling differently. You really appreciate agreement a grief over the things you do have when you're in the states in the n._b._a. For sure <hes> was the chinaman. All those things was was was kinda crazy toughest toughest part but said i had a small circle kept closer to me. We didn't have to support a take care of as much in my family <hes> which helped me get through that time yeah you mentioned get the pay top he you don't know going overseas because sometimes it'd be de fifteen hour you know so ah different men <hes> even daily but so they give you they really wanna tell you contract not saying that they can't you but they give you first payment and modu so you get to deliver freezer apart everything which helps an free like certain restaurant where it is. You'll get two free meals a day that really pay anything <hes> so you even if you're not getting paid which is not great but you never really missing out on on your spending as much <hes> so you get the first payment and then a month ago by and you're still practicing twice a day every today and it's colds morning. If you work in lifted in the morning shooting and then second practice you'll be playing and working out in real practice like real real and next month goes by and you're like yo i and sometimes the coastal even know the payments come from. I guess their sponsors and you're not getting fans coming in all of this not paying their head connect. Nobody's getting paid after two or three months ago. Look man. You're not paying me enough to practice twice a day. I'm not coming in the morning so oh. You're not getting paid. Don't act like you don't know what you think they don't you know i'm not getting paid so i'm eventually you get it before we leave but the thing is stipulation is if you're not gonna pay each day there late. They had to pay interest each day so it's like all right. I'm missing money which i'll pay more when i leave here. Now i normally get it eventually and it's going to be more than what i signed for but same time it's like when you're gonna give me the money but they create created that what the fever and everything's taken care of some players like <hes> some guys i don't care. I know they pay a lot. More longer is better for me. We'll get more money. I hear you man but y- g. league. You barely get paid enough to take your car note so yeah back then anyway. I i don't know what is now. They raised it a little bit but still don't for god's struggle reno's cold. Anything is the opposite of vegas in ongoing on on. I know i know you mentioned. You're you're pretty frugal. You don't spend too much to a lot of that kind of instilled in you because of the instability that your career started off on or that yeah definitely when i was younger i mean now not as much <hes> new enjoy it. Try to enjoy the fruits as much you can yeah. It's still hard. I don't see myself being certain that guy like oh. It'd be dying all these brands undoing do now. I still find a way everybody finds. We get the discount or get it for free or cheap <hes> all the way to do it. You'll never lose that because where you come from yeah especially like when you were saying can you just kind of went home and we're working out and you didn't necessarily know when that break was gonna come you just hope hope to knew it would but i was a home for the students with no end in sight. I mean it just takes a lot like i think a lot of people. Would you know i'm not gonna work out today. It's it's not gonna come for a couple of weeks. I'll do it tomorrow but you really never know no you don't and at that time of the press because i had weird hours asleep and i was sleeping all day and and be up all night but the only thing that kept my mind away from nothing about it was getting the gym and working out <hes> so just you know very myself and the german outside the the gym. Nobody really saw me. Oh your brother's birthday. I'm like i'll sleep woke up at seven pm but because i want to sleep at that morning or some up all night but either way it was a weird time <hes> for everybody was your family is gonna be like the mitch on a not too worried about you. Encouraging believe with the gym would help support system to which you mentioned is obviously massive. We have a lot of people on the show and they everyone seems to come back to their support system..

"It's funny like you get it. You start working this world and it's it's almost weird to have a favorite team or if any player just because you end up like you know working with so many so many different people so like all the players yeah. I'm just i'm just i would. I would like to see good basketball but yet growing up it was it was the wizards in my favorite player was manager. Nobly obviously not on the wizards but i always felt like i tried my best to emulate relate his game. I felt like i had the euro step down the ugly lefty jumper down <hes> yeah so that's me and then josh billy really from china also wants to know. Have you ever gotten to heated moments or a fight with your teammates in practice. Yeah definitely did me daniel jeffrey. I haven't really got into anyone in the <hes> in college. I got into daniel tofu jalen brunson dante david penzo because i've got into a lot like your whole roster right. I'm very competitive. Sometimes you know that competitive needs to kind of boil over. Luckily all those guys you know we all have great relationships and this friendship so so but yeah i've gone to you know some altercation some teammates but obviously <hes> though your brother than he knows always love no matter what you know. Oh and i think that's what makes teams better. Anyone who's ever played competitively knows like if you're not getting into fights and practice you're not competing hard and do and if you are getting into fights in the you're not able to just move past after you're not you're not brothers moments like that. Show how much everybody cares <hes> and once you're able to get past him i think you you can see a lot of successes that team which probably is a good transition into the next question gregory underscore molina thirty josh how incredible was it to win the the national championship especially in the way that it was done a game winner buzzer beater incredible fashion and also set the table for the listeners might have lived under a rock in two thousand sixteen yeah so so for twenty sixteen with my junior villanova. We want a national championship and which i feel i feel like are run. It was kind of not appreciate okada overlooked because obviously the the first round game. We killed whoever you know with a fifteen seat. Whatever the second seat after you played nine into specific order but among replayed it was iowa miami kansas oklahoma uh north carolina and actually lose in that exact order. We played them in and at one point. Everyone of those teams were in top ten hatton ranking in the country at one point during this season during that time and three were no once canes was the overall number one-seat tournament oklahoma with the number one seed i think and then u._n._c. was the number one i feel like u._n._c. might have had the longest streak number one that season so we be all those teams killed oklahoma about forty four tom that in itself i mean it's the largest margin of victory in a semi final. Hour in the final four is on her. That's not going to get <hes> replicated beaten their record and going to stay for a very long time so we play those guys are nosy played north carolina. Uh and the championship. We were up ten at one point. They came back markus patriot a crazy double clutched three about four or four point seven seconds left and we call it a play that we've run every day in a practice same play that causes head since you really started coaching so play ryan outed the egg you know get screened from daniel chafe oooo chris trails. We never in this play. We've never hit the trail man for three in this house. Who's the reason jason we did chris three other bidder. We wind it all so one. It was amazing to win because you work so hard to to get to that point and to win their last game to be champions <hes> to be the last team out of three hundred and fifty plus teamed and in a country is crazy failing. I can't really kind of put it into words and and is how we want it with. Probably the <hes> tom clutches or the biggest shot. You know i think in basketball history definitely without a doubt n._c._a._a. History <hes> we kris jenkins megan at three was kind of like a story book and into this season for us and it's something that <hes> <hes> always remember remember the friendships and bonds that we have with our team team and it's something that we can talk about for the rest of our lives and we tell our kids and our kids kids that you know for me. It was amazing. <hes> i think definitely the highest point in my basketball career ozzy. Some people think get drafted was not in the national team. I think that it shows more character and more determination and then get drafted so <hes> like as a kind of long winded answer to that that question yet once you start talking about that. It's hard to stop neon. <hes> nine now is like i said i was there for that whole run and <hes> just just being a spectator of it was was pretty a crazy can't imagine how it must have felt playing <hes> so let's i know we kind of hinted at or we talked about danny being this next guest but just <hes>. Maybe let's talk up one more time everyone you know you guys kind of basketball fans. <hes> you know who danny green is. That wasn't always the the story. Danny was later second round. Pick them with the cavs wanted to north carolina round pick with the cavs. I didn't really play guy waved claimed off waivers by spurs six days after claims off waivers got <hes> waived again and went to another g. league lockout year think he had a opportunity to go to spurs and then the lockout route having and then he had to go overseas comeback you know and a lotta times i can break people but you know he no bed bet determination to really live out his dream of planet n._b._a. And raised the highest peter he could for himself who rings man yeah. How do you say that exactly so did that and then obviously found his niche <hes> they you know get back onto the spurs one in a one a m._b. Finals with them <hes> would be a key player. There gets traded to toronto and for one year one in year they wanted to and he was a major role in that and then now sign a deal with the lakers for annually the biggest salary of his career so thirty two at thirty two so you know his story is something i think people should really listen to and be inspired because this is really a story of determination and resilience which i think no matter what your profession is no matter how old you are are how young you are it can inspire you and it can help you find more in yourself and a. and learn more about yourself when you put duties adversities and i think say good episode is able to dive into some of those stories. He's and you know hopefully you can inspire you. Guys aways inspired a us and other people hurt historic before without further ado integrate. Welcome everybody to another.

You guys did not do. So good steals. Deflections charges loose balls. This is very important to our coach Luke Walton the Carter and grim James there is it's all about competing the leader. By the way, LeBron James is not the leader on this. I'm just saying that he is. He's amazing. Oh, we got a pool table. We got giant TV's again. A barber's chair haircut purple felt of course on the on the both him. Yes. Yes. So. It's nice. It was important that we had a large table. So they could always eat together Lada influences here not only of Dr bus. But also, Phil Jackson who you know. I was engaged to for several years and point used to coach the team coach this team. But you know, about about, you know, I remember one argument he and I had because he made the players come in on Thanksgiving Day for practice. And I said why why won't you give them the day off? It's thanksgiving. They travel so much, and he he said genie. He said, the plenty of time to go home and be with their families. But what they need to realize is this is their family too. And we need to be together on a holiday the. So this is a big giant family table with, you know, spot for eleven or twelve large human beings to sit and. And get together. And so his inspiration about treating a player as a whole person that. Yes, you're you're with them when they're playing basketball when their training, but they have lives, and they have families, and you know, to make sure that you stay connected, and you know, the whole person. I can take you in our video room. That it looks like a ride at Disney's totally done shares and cab captain's chairs or two. So this is where they watch and breaking film leaking go this way. Good. Do you know your way around? I'm just oh, what's the scene of the golden north? The gold door. More on the you know, the magic happens. Right. So this is our entry way. And now, I'll take you guys to my fess. This is going to sound like a stupid question. But but but it's real what do you do every day? You know, it's always different.

This is my office. Actually, this is the trophy room. I just happened on my desk in here. And so I will never going to be this close to NBA championship trophy. That's cool. Seven eight two thousand the reason, you know, it it was important. You know, the trophies were displayed. So that the players could see this is the inspiration. We overlook the Gordon if they look up here, they will see these trophies hanging around. Now, here's a great feature or me is that exit. Come watch. Balcony to watch practice. Nice right here kind of watch paperwork. That's the war room. That we were the Conrad. We're right now, I have those kind of you know. Back way to get into the basketball operation. This is a really good. Snapshot of you being able to run the empire right from your office to the court Saint or room, right? And you know, again, going back to players wanting to know who's who's standing with them who's behind them totally you know. So it store all together in this. That's awesome.
