The Glamorous Lakers' Unlikely Leader

"So Kevin. In spite of being blown out the other day in Boston the Lakers are still the number one seed in the West and everything is sunshine and rapes around the staple center but a year ago. It felt like there was a storm cloud hanging over the franchise. I had magic Johnson. President Basketball Operations nations stepping down team fired their head coach. Luke Walton and then they chose Frank Vogel as his replacement awesome and there was a perception around here in Los Angeles that it was a pretty uninspired choice right in some ways frank. Vogel is the Ultimate Safety School. So for the Los Angeles Lakers Kevin Arnovitz is an NBA insider for ESPN. They went after Monty Williams former player who has immense amount of respect but at the end of the day he got a much more appealing offer from the Phoenix Suns. Tai Lue was a top choice. Lebron's former coach NBA Championship. Cleveland Cavaliers in two thousand sixteen. And what are the Lakers. Do they offer him a contract that I think it's fair to say was. Maybe not befitting a championship coach. There's sort of a standard now for for what a NBA coach gets in terms of the years in terms of money and this particular contract offer fell far short of that to the point where I think the public certainly the perception within the League was here of the Lakers doing it again. They think they're the Lakers. They have this golden or around them they can just offer championship. Coach is his deals. That don't reflect that pedigree so they don't get money Williams tyler walks not for another job. He just walks and they get Vogel. I used to do a lot of L. A.. Sports Radio and I remember this announcement very vividly. Los Angeles Lakers fans. They were not happy. Happy Kevin in fact they were furious. Vogel I think at the outset was seen as an odd choice for a number of reasons. One one is. The Lakers are the Lakers. And they have traditionally gone after coaches. That are either real brand names or have this royal. LAKER occur bloodline they are part of the Laker family. So here comes Vogel who is coming off. Two year stint in Orlando where he lost twice as many games as he won one could say no fault of his own. It was it was a young mismatch roster of players. But he doesn't have a brand name he looks like an accountant announced he's never played in the NBA before so he doesn't bring with him. The story playing career so for a fan base and a franchise. That's always been very brand obsessed. Why are you getting this off? Brand coach was very much. I think the perception an off Branko. Now I'm imagining frank. Vogel at the Grocery store he's like the generic. I Love Kirkland. I I think that sets up this story very well because you great value. Oh you use the Kirkland of coaches and of course. The Lakers are widely perceived as his ex hyper glamorous NBA franchise in particular with Lebron James. They're going into an off season in which they're going to be trying to get free agents. This is before the trade for Anthony Davis and here comes maybe the least glamorous coach forget fans for a second just people inside the game fifteen choices of who is going to be. The next Lakers head coach. I don't I don't know that Frank Vogel would have been on one ballot. I'm not saying Bogle can't coach Lebron's right that's different. So how did he get start. Frank Vogel got his start by by being a pest he was division three point guard for a genie out of college and he became obsessed with Kentucky basketball when he was at home on winter. Break when you're watching that famous Duke Kentucky lightning later catches He decides I want to be part a big time college basketball. He's going to leave his division three school. He writes letters to the staff at Kentucky including Rick Pitino and they basically send back a form letter. Thank you for your interest. This is in the mid nineties so he decides. I'm just going to drop out of my college enroll at Kentucky. I'm GONNA drive there. Basically without an invitation nation. And I'm just going to hang around the facility. Whatever anything I can do to get inside volunteer? Whatever they need and little by little sure enough he hangs around enough due to the point? Where Jim O'Brien who was assistant to Rick Pitino said Okay Okay? We'll we have the video room. which at the time video rooms have become like the very sexy place to get your start as a coach? Now Erik Spoelstra Mike Putin Holzer Dave Fidel but back then it was still kind of a newish thing and so he just camped out in the video room and essentially became one of the best young video coordinators in all of basketball and to the point when when Pitino went to the Celtics they ultimately brought. Frank Vogel Oh go along with them. And then when O'Brien took over he promoted him again and so little by little. He's sort of the He's the kind of the little engine that could of basketball. So he dollars. O'Brien to Indianapolis. And that's where he gets his first shot as head coach. How does that go right? He gets to the Fr- what we call. The Front of the bench comes a top assistant in an Indiana Under Jim O'Brien O'Brien gets fired and Vogel's the next Guy Up Larry Bird actually ask Joe. Brian looked this. Guy's really loyal to you.

The NBA Finals are hours away, so why are we still talking about the Lakers?

"Now's witching gears to the Lakers. Just there's so much there. Michael. I mean I'm wondering and you're buried in it. What about this situation, especially the last month or so surprises you the most? I think what surprises me the most is the NBA finals are starting in, you know, a little over twenty four hours, thirty six hours and we're still talking about the Lakers and all the drama and dysfunction going on within their organization in in one week from June. I think that's the biggest surprise for me. I'm not surprised by the reports coming out, you and I have discussed this at nauseam before, and what sources have said and what was going on? And I think Magic Johnson going on. I take last week just reinforce that Baxter home story on ESPN as well. I wrote a story that happened to coincide with Baxter's publishing today comparing the Lakers two game. Come on, just all this family, and sibling, fracturing and backstabbing, it's not just been going on this year. But since Dr Jerry Buss died in two thousand thirteen and you know, I, I made the comparison that Magic Johnson played the role. Role of the tar, Gary and torching Lakers landing, you know, not to play spoiler for anybody who hasn't seen it. But that's what he did by going on. I take you know, he, he aired all the dirty laundry. And, and that's that's the most interesting part. I think even today it's going on after this article magic coming out saying, if he has to do it all over again. He would've fired everyone in brought in his own people, including and rob. So it's just never ending story. I don't have one point two million followers out there like brawny, but I definitely think people should be paying attention to what just this dysfunction going on within, the, the Lakers organization. Do you believe the part about Rich Paul going to the Commissioner of the NBA to complain about? Luke Walton as the head coach of the Lakers. Not necessarily the way it was phrased. But he did I read the article, and it did sound like he saw the Commissioner at a restaurant. And so maybe it's possible in this long conversation that went on a bunch of different topics. They asked about Luke Walton and what he thought maybe he gave his two cents. I don't think he approached the Commissioner saying, you know, we should have his job or anything, but look we heard from sources throughout the season, especially early on. Right. Lebron LeBron didn't like Luke Walton didn't want him as the coach. And those we all knew that was coming from his camp, which essentially is Rich Paul Rich Paul was at every game. He was sitting courtside. He had his c-. We I got to speak to him a lot many people did. So we thought that's where it was coming from. So the fact that he didn't want Luke Walton as his coach and wanted Tyron Lewis. The article said that didn't surprise me at all the manner in which he may have gone about it without him silver that, that kind of did, surprise me. But I wouldn't be surprised if it had been mentioned in the

He got on top of me and Kim me down to the bed and held my arms down with all of his Wayne while he kissed my neck and my face and my chest. And as I kept asking him to please stop into get off. He laughed at me. I continue to ask him to stop over and over again without any use of my arms because he continued to hold me down. I feel him rubbing his erection on me. And he continued to laugh at all of my Cleese to get off and to stop. There are no criminal charges stemming from the Kelly tenant filing a civil suit this week. She claims Walton continued to harasser after he became coach of the Lakers, and she was working as a broadcaster in LA. The Lakers the allegation was never reported to the team before or during Walton's employment. I was scared when someone assaults you, and you think you're going to be rate coming forward is a scary thing.

Female reporter sues NBA Coach Luke Walton for sexual assault

"I want to say this briefly, we've learned our lesson when it comes to domestic violence accusations in sports and beyond we've learned our lesson. And that is. If you don't know who to believe, then just say, you you don't know who to believe, I don't know what happened. You don't know. What happened? I will say this as much as Luke Walton has had a respectable run. And a well liked run an NBA circles. So has Kelly tenant in broadcast circles. Let me pass that along. So just keep that all in mind. I'm not taking sides here. I wasn't there. I do know some of the people that are involved here. But I wasn't there. I have no idea what happened and at and we'll keep it right there. But there's one thing I do need to say tonight. I don't know who this this lawyer is that Luke Walton hired. I know he's the guy that got Derrick rose cleared in his situation last year. That lawyer released a statement earlier today declaring Luke Walton innocence calling the accusations baseless that's garden variety that standard. That's fine. It also referred to Kelli Tennant as an opportunist that. Is not something. That's okay. With me. That's the kind of stuff in my opinion that puts this entire conversation on a wrong track. You don't need to quote unquote, victim shame. I don't know if she is actually victim. But there's no need in this particular case to come out that hot start firing with names and demonize, whoever's on the other side. And I know some of you are going to sit here and say, well, he's being demonized by what she's saying in her case. Here's the deal is pretty simple to me. If you're the lawyer if you feel like your client is innocent or obviously, it's your job to say. So that's the the way that they wanna play it just say that. Say that leave right there, Luke Walton is innocent. These claims are baseless we plan to fight cool. It does nobody any good. And it does so many so harm so much harm for you to start taking those who bring claims, and I do believe that way. More than fifty percent of claims are true.

Lakers shut down LeBron James for rest of season

"Lebron James is shutting it down for the rest of the season. We will not see the king play basketball anymore. Luke, Walton said that they had to convince LeBron James to shut it down. Do you think they've really had to convince him to shut it? Now, not they had to convince them. It just became a reality of the situation. We have a handful of games remaining. You did a great job of showing that you did recover enough from your groin injury to still be productive which was when he got back into the lineup. So now that we understand that you're going to be healthy going forward. Lonzo ball is implant. We're going to the lottery clearly it is time for him to end the season. I mean, I know you don't like resting healthy players. But to me, this is just the obvious right decision. Do you agree with that? It's the logical decision not necessarily the right decision. Nobody felt like we'd be at this point with LeBron James. To the point where we would question whether they be in the playoffs. Let alone so far out of the playoffs. And it don't matter whether he plays or not so because of that storm and him going into a seventeen seventeen season. It's logical even fans would say like kinda makes sense for him not to play. If we want to see them next year when you look at the Lakers, you know, their ability to win games with them and out LeBron James, there's a drastic difference there. I mean, they're not going to be winning very many games the rest of the season. But we do have some information about LeBron James if some are plans, you gotta remember he usually plays like another two months. So he's got a lot of free time. And what's he doing with that free time? He's not going to play with team USA in the World Cup. He is going to film Space Jam to. He said he's going to have a court Bill onset. So he can still train while it's building Space Jam to what do you think about LeBron James filming Space Jam to he went in that game

LeBron's first season in Los Angeles has become a disaster

"When it rains it pours over the Lakers right down there overwhelming favourite not to make it to the postseason. The years turned into a disaster. Whether it be the LeBron injury on Christmas day which kept him out for the next two or eighteen or nineteen of the next games. Whether it be the the open flirting with Anthony Davis. And the the New Orleans pelicans and trying to get him before the NBA trade deadline lead to a lot of discontent with the young players. Whether it be LeBron camp, not being happy with Luke Walton. One a him out earlier on in the regular season or whether it be a team that was poorly constructed by Magic Johnson and company to wear. Gimme the guy on that team right now. That's you know, the the role veteran player that's a great outside shooter spot up and shoot the ball. Well from the outside as LeBron's drive in the basketball. Yeah. Year one for LeBron been a nightmare, Los Angeles. It really has. I mean, and it was just such a gigantic spotlight. And rightfully so on this move of him going to Cleveland to to Lakers, and it just was everybody. I mean just about now I hate to stereotype everybody. But most folks either that a fans or cover to cover sports or whatever. Assume that this was going to go a lot better. I did. I did I thought this would have been better. Didn't you? I mean. Yeah. I mean, I thought they make the playoffs. Yeah. Doubt. I mean, I I didn't think they'd be a. ATM not yet anyway. But I thought it was going to be a work in progress for LeBron and the Lakers task. But certainly how how do you not look at a player of the caliber LeBron who is able to carry his team out in Cleveland a lot while they had some downturns with even though this was a poorly constructed team. What the what the talent of with coups Ma with ball with Ingram that that they were going to be good enough to at least be a playoff team in the Western Conference. And they're you know, they're worse this year than they were a year ago now, and I should say there. They're a game better kids better this year with the best player the best player in the world. On the team. Listen a little defense to them. They all banged up balls. Hurt angles. Hurt coups returned his ankle last night. I get it. So they are a little bit. But, but you know, what this is they haven't been banged up all year. So you know, they got themselves in a big hole here. Sitting at thirty and thirty four now. I mean, so it's through this dead danski. I mean, really, and it's like, wow, LeBron not in the postseason. Oh my God. That's catastrophic.

"luke walton" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader

"As Lakers coach, Luke Walton. Now seems to be in the clear after reports that LeBron and his camper hoping for a coaching change in LA while the Lakers certainly have been going through a rough patch. It was interesting that LeBron would have thoughts on the coach while he's been m I a with a groin injury. Despite all this Lakers insider seem to believe that wall will finish out the season after that who knows. So let's get to the bottom of it onsides or offsides. Luke Walton will be coaching the Lakers next year. Sides. You can't always get what you want. I don't think it applies to LeBron James here. And remember this is a team that before LeBron went down with the injury. They were a top five top four team in the Western Conference in terms of record the Broncos down with the injury. And once again. It shows you how important LeBron is to that team. Magic Johnson and genius. Could try to hold this offering Luke Walton for as long as they want which is going to be this season. But LeBron is gonna get the younger players that he wants to stay the younger players that he doesn't want. They will eventually get out. And the coach is not buddy, buddy. With ron. So LeBron wants his buddy whoever that buddy will be. We shall see. Even though Magic Johnson has a lot of clout in NBA circles. It's not the same as the Pat Reilly situation rally said, hey, it's bullshit and you'll just deal with it. Lebron went to LA when he did not have to and I have a feeling that the casualty here whether it's fair or not. Is going to be Luke Walton and now will either come in season or that will come at the end of the season because the Lakers are not going to meet these expectations that I thought were unrealistic when the season started because I didn't think they're going to be that great of a team. So with that being said, offsides Luke Walton will not be the coach next year size number three. The never ending on the Hickey right there. Little trace scrub the never ending, Adele.

"My friend. I have week eleven I am doing pretty good to be honest. Legal haven't coming off an eagles five. I don't know about this week eleven nonsense. You're right. Why do you do this to me? I don't know today. We're going to talk about why Luke Walton will not be the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers seasons. And we're gonna talk about why trae young as the favorite to win rookie of the year right now. And we're gonna talk about why the chargers will not make the championship game. And we're gonna start things off as we always do with our number one segment. It's still Luke Walton segment today, and I'm definitely not killing time to set the timer. Luke Walton Greg tell me why Luke Walton will not be Los Angeles Lakers head coach at the end of the season. Chris let's let's take a a look at what usually happens in. Coaching situations with LeBron James, and I think you can reference the song of the show. Where we talk about LeBron ruining teams, and we're already on that path here with the Los Angeles Lakers. And we're only ten games into the season. I think their play they played nine games. Maybe maybe eight it doesn't matter. Either way. We already have to have a come to Jesus meeting with Magic Johnson. It's unreal. What LeBron does these teams? And I don't know whether it's the pressure on magic to rebuild a storied franchise signing, the biggest free agent possible that's out there or you know, the overall mediocre start at this team got to. But all the blame is falling on Luke Walton. Of course, it is. It's not the fact that your other biggest free agents are land Stevenson, javale McGee and regime Rondo all have their place in the NBA. But as a unit with LeBron you're expecting this team to all of a sudden become an automatic contender in the west with what you had Kyle coups with what you had in Lonzo ball, and all that blame is getting placed on a guy who made his coaching name filling in for Steve Kerr. With one of the best teams ever created. That's the reason why eventually Luke Walton is gonna find himself a job somewhere else. And it's going to be sooner rather than later. Lebron does this look at his track record Mike Brown run out of Cleveland after failed attempts in the postseason Tai Lue, that's not really on him. But he replaced the guy that LeBron essentially ran out of Cleveland and David Blatt. This just happens with the guys that that start with LeBron. It's a foregone conclusion at this point that Luke Walton already to be on. How could you be eight eight games into a season? And you're already having a conversation about potentially, you know, there's rumors going on their coach is going to be replaced. I mean this hockey timing. That's how head-spinning night is. It's like we just started. How can we do this? That was quiet. So I think I should kick this off by saying that I never liked Luke Walton, I have I've never ever liked Luke Walton. I didn't think he deserves the Lakers job in the first place based on what he did with a Golden State Warriors team that like you mentioned, I medium to high level. Former CYO coach could have won sixty five games with with that said what the hell were the expectations LA that? There's usually talking about firing Walton this early into the season talk about unrealistic talk about ridiculous. I guess that. I should also point out. I absolutely detest. Magic Johnson as general manager official team efficient in the NBA. I just don't think he's good at it to me comes off as smug know, it all who accepts absolutely no responsibility for his own actions for his own decisions. So if I have to pick a side here, I guess I pick Waltons and this is. This whole situation..

"When you put together an almost entirely new team, featuring veterans, you haven't played with before young guys that you don't know how they work with your new star. And then Hello every time LeBron James has gone somewhere. New think about how long it's taken for that team to gel. So this seems so premature to me the only explanation I can give is that Magic Johnson is in those practices and sees what they're working on and what strategy or techniques Luke Walton is using and saying I don't like how this is going to make this team better. Well, and that's a great point because I agree with you wholeheartedly that what we're seeing in the roster shuffling to me make sense. And to me, that's what we should be seeing if you're young if you're a young team being put together where you've got all these. Different pieces in you're trying to figure out what gets guys to develop at the right pace. Luke Walton as a coach is doing exactly what I would want. My coach to do. He is looking at. Hey, what combinations maximize everybody the best? And the fact is you're not going to know that from preseason basketball. You're not even gonna know that from practice. You gotta see guys in games to get there. I think the other interesting part though, in L sort of admit that I still this mindset from Stephen Smith. I heard talking about it earlier today is the pace of play is a concern within the organization in the minds of Steven A. And it makes sense. I mean, if you wanna look at one failing to Luke Walton as a coach for this team is is he slowing that pace of play down to maximize LeBron later in the season. He isn't. So when pace a play is an issue if it's an issue, and when you're talking about a group that is not getting back and playing defensively at all those are where the questions come. Now, Luke Walton was asked obviously as we would all expect about his job security. This is what he had to say. I feel like I have a great relationship management. Do you feel like you? Have job security. I feel like down here to job and coach. I don't I don't feel like I'm going into. Do you feel like the message got through the players might be little bit of a rollercoaster failed losing streaks that we talked about them before season even started. So. You know, here's the first one. Let's handle it as a as a group not give it life and keep working on where we need to work, and we came out today, and they had a great practice players were engaged involved talking to each other about you know, what needs to be done as well. As the coaches with is the type of environment that type of culture we want? So. We're a good place. Sara to hear him talking about the expectation of being able to focus through these things talks about one of the unique challenges that that is going to exist for the Lakers all year long Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio. Sarahspain Jason Fitz. If you're Luke Walton, you're not coaching like any other coach right now because you're not coaching like any other situation the eyeballs that are always on the Lakers one thing. But when you add to that the eyeballs that come with LeBron and the expectation that Lakers fans have it's one thing in my mind to say, okay, we'll fans have expectations. Who cares? They don't worry about the the basketball minds. Don't worry about that to here magic having these expectations already though. That's when you do have to start worrying about the other part of this the overused word and all sports distraction because it feels like it will become one. Well, and here's the thing. That's what a tough situation to be in. Because if you're holding out for what we all believe is going to happen, which is likely probably Anthony Davis to the Lakers were at the very least huge peak. Name free agent added to this. This is not the final roster that the. Acres are sending out there believing that they can compete with the worst. So if you know that your timetable requires you to wait until next season or maybe the trade deadline of this season..

"He's in charge of basketball operations. They've let magic come in and make a lot of decisions. And there's been a lot of change. They brought the got LeBron James free agency. But to make a change on Luke Walton that's the decision that would be shared at the very highest level of the organ in the past genie brush past wet the people in charge of the basketball side make those level of decisions. But you're right. Her ties to Luke are particularly strong Scotty, if you were Luke Walton in this situation, and you have the roster you have which is not Luke Walton choice. But that's who is working with it doesn't LeBron James. What do you do right now? Well, for me, I would try to create a better relationship with LeBron James LeBron James has been successful by having coaches that he's played for and he's had a successful career. So I'm gonna take the path of saying LeBron. What do you think we need to do to be better as a team? And how can we? Be better as a team. And I don't know maybe he's already asked that from LeBron. But that's where it has the goal because the relationship between LeBron and Luke Walton has to work. That's so interesting to me, and I'm thinking about your teams and the relationship, of course, between UNM Jay and Phil Jackson and the front office. You guys the three of you were aligned in not always having a great relationship with the front office. But because the three of you were behind together and the two of you were behind, Phil. So it was never going anywhere. And that's what is really is. All about is about really how much is LeBron James going to stand up for Luke Walton now, and that's really what it comes down to James willing to speak up for the warden. Do he have that confidence that Lewan can get him to the championship or in the playoff? Well, listen, I thing with LeBron James so far he hasn't played you know, he's like in third gear. Right. He's working in the shape. Didn't play a lot in the preseason. We've seen this. Other seasons where he's going to ramp up. He's going to play a lot better in the next month. And he's played so far in this one in and that's part of the two LeBron at the highest level. It changes dynamic. They haven't gotten the best of him yet. They will it's a long season. And that's especially at his age. You know, the the ramping up of it is part of it. But the relationship in talking about the relationship that Michael in Scotty in that group had Phil Jackson that's built over years and years and years and going through a lot together because of Ben together for two months, and it doesn't just magically happen. And I can't say that LeBron stepping up is going to help the Lakers. Lebron don't need to step up. Now. I mean, we've watched LeBron play heart eighty two game season last year. He's played a lot of games throughout his career without any injuries. So to say that he needs to exert himself. More for the regular season is not sending a good sign that they're going to be a player. Off team because you almost forcing LeBron into injury. If you think he can care team three eighty two games and be the our complain. They need to get better on the defensive end. They're fine offensively right now. But they're not built to be great defensively. It's going to be interesting. It's getting hot and by the way, Lakers practices going on right now. So stay tuned to the jump because we will be bringing you the latest from that as those guys break from a practice today. What would you thanks for joining us. We're gonna let you go commune with your text messages coming up.

"Episode of undisputed handpicked with the best segments and discussions, skip, Shannon. Let's go. LeBron and the new look Lakers had their first official practice yesterday, Luke Walton addressed the team. I non LeBron which is a big deal since LeBron address the Cavs in their first practice. Back in two thousand fourteen not head coached, Blat all said, quote, it was a physical practice, but we challenge them mentally to while abroad added quote, Luke and the coaching staff had a great first practice Shannon will the unity between the Celeste, yes, but it will be some growing pains. I mean, with any relationship, there's going to be arguments they're going to be disagreements. But I think LeBron has the utmost respect for coaches that have actually played the game. He had a very profound respect for Paul Silas big, Paul played tight t Lou t Lou play. Luke Walton plate. It has things give Luke. Walton won championships. He battled tested. He's been in game seven NBA finals. He's been in game seven, the Western Conference finals. So he's going to LeBron's going to have. A healthy level of respect for it, but they're going to be time. They're going to be a disagreement that happens with any relationship. Anybody that tells you, they've been in a relationship and there wasn't a disagreement they're lying or that wasn't a healthy relationship because somebody just agree with everything. The other saying that's not gonna last very long. Well, you to agreement and disagreement yesterday. Everything says, but now everything. Go ahead. The give that LeBron is very tough in great players are tough to coat because they only really see things from their lands from there is remember. He mentioned having kids has taught me patience. Yeah. So in magic, Larry Bird is like, why can't you guys get it? It? Do you gotta pantheon Grayton there are few and far between of you guys. And so the other guy, that's why normally guys that didn't play or that will marginal players make the best coaches because they get an opportunity to see things from a whole different a prism. Then the pantheon player magic, Larry Bird so skip. I believe this relationship will will progress in a very positive direction, but there will be some, you know, some some bumps in the road reme- play a gay kubiak in Denver, with my offense coordinator. He played the lead Matt cabinet with my office coordinator. He played Lee and the thing for me skipping. That sometimes I could always go to him and they say shop. Cool, eight, four eighty four. Just play football. I'm going to trust your decision. He said, because. In sometimes they would ask me to say, well, why did you do it like that? I say because that x. on the board that you drew when I was all he didn't stay there like you do it, he moved. So I played football, so they trust me. So at the end of the day, I'm sure they're going to be some head buddy, but Luke Walton going trust, Ron, Ron, going trust loop. Don't get it done really within the next reunion and within the next three years..

Love this lineup Lonzo ball Josh heart cow coups MMA, Brandon Ingram and LeBron maybe playing the the hybrid five. A boy, I love that that's going to be a fun team to. Watch and then look at that second unit Rondo at the point, guard position who is. Great in, the postseason with the pelicans last, year and land, Stevenson JBL McGee it's center On the second unit And, Beasley yeah you know That's interesting Now if everybody, behaved themselves if everybody's happy with, the roles if we have harmony in the, locker room which doesn't seem likely considering those four malcontents they just.

Because these and for all of you all over the. Country there's a big difference between Kobe.

"The answer to that threats can have to do some really digging for that one but again if you didn't know lebron and luke walton were in the exact same draft yeah i will say this i kind of find a little curious i mean luke walton subbed in i steve kerr when he had his baggage with the warriors now there's a lot of hoops hype around the warriors that's when curry mania was at its peak yeah so there was a lot of hoopla dealing with that and dealing with the championships and all that kind of stuff so by the way he does coach the lakers this is one of the premier franchises in all relevant lakers right now though right but there's the relevant by just being the lakers i understand that lebron there's a whole new level no by the way did you see that fan that wanted someone to deface the mural mural intermural lebron is the same guy did the the stuart scott y'all's yeah and then some fan offer three hundred bucks a deface and i mean come up on it him up on his idiotic so i get there's a lot of craziness that goes along with this but i mean it's like being the coach of the dallas cowboys even when they're irrelevant they're kind of i disagree i think his problem he had last year with some kids dad yeah distract teammates i will say this you calling that just some kids dad might be might be putting that a little mildly but but you're right we had jeff gundy on last week and he basically said the ball family went from its top priority seven and van gundy said for luke walton it his winning percentage may go up at his fun quotient may go down in really talk about just about anything but the actual coaching on the floor of things you have to deal with team so i don't i don't have a problem with all luke seeking out kind of things here are there on things that may pop up that that he would wouldn't wouldn't normally have to deal with you think about the burden of expectation all of this in luke walton time with golden state there is no expectation for him the idea was you can't screw this up because this team is so good with the lakers last year this team is so young and still in its formative stages that there was no expectation for them to do anything of value anytime soon now that you've added lebron james the burden to produce now goes up tenfold because if you don't get it done as luke walton they're not going to say well lebron james we need to add more this they're going to say you're the problem and they're gonna show you the door yeah and this is look this sort of process continues to evolve with the lakers is not just about lebron but it's about who's around him and are they about to add ten time all star according to our aid rewards and ascii mom there will be a parting of the ways between carmelo anthony and the thunder whether it be by trade brown or buyout or the all important stretch provision so what will the market be like from l o well here's coach whether it's in the starting lineup whether it's coming off the bench on great team there's going to be a lot of sooners among contenders for carmelo anthony and that number in oklahoma city was not sustainable to think how many players in the league really would you be willing to spend one hundred and seven million nine so it makes sense for both sides and his market will be significant now this could play out over the course of the summer they they're going to work on trade scenarios i know oklahoma city they can get to that they can do that stretch provision at any time later in the summer so they'll try to work through it here and i also think they'll work with carmelo they you know for his really in a gesture probably i think of goodwill they may not want this to stretch out so far to inhibit his opportunity to go jump on somewhere else i love it they want to stretch it out but they will use the stretch provision let's be clever this carmelo opted in and then the thunder decided over.
