"Wrap up the week by going out west for the most jumbled conference in recent memory and I needed someone who could go into fancy databases that I don't know how to use and come out with numbers that show me how unprecedented or is it unprecedented to have a conference where everybody is so close together, particularly four to 12 or four to 13 a conference with no dominant really a league with no dominant team at least in terms of net rating at point deferential compared to what we usually see. And that is Seattle's finest Kevin pelton how are you, sir? I'm doing well. Thanks for having me. We got to start with a couple of quick news items. Lonzo Ball, according to woj and I think the bulls as well is going to need a third knee surgery on his left knee. It is going to be apparently a cartilage replacement surgery that could knock him out for the entirety of next season, which is just an absolute gut punch. I mean, look, we can talk about the bulls and what does this mean for the bulls, but Lonzo Ball is only 25. It seems like he's older than that. That surprised me when I read it yesterday, and for any kind of someone who loves fun, selfless team first basketball, he's always been a guy that you just gravitate to in terms of his style of the plate, so playing Kevin. I've told the story before, I will never forget it was November 15th, 2021. Eons ago, it seems. I was at what was then Staples Center, really was always going to be called Staples Center on the low post podcast. For bulls Lakers, early last season, the first season of this Lonzo vuch demar Levine Quartet, now LeBron play, LeBron was out there, came, but still you got AD got Russ, you know, hype, it's the Lakers. And the bulls absolutely like clowned the Lakers. I was on press row like two rows up, Staples has a good press seats. And the difference in speed enthusiasm, joy, like the bulls were playing one style of basketball, the ball was flying around dudes where Jack in threes. It was fast. They were hit ahead passes, boom, boom, three, boom, boom, three, rebound boom three. The Lakers were like walking the ball up unhappy in molasses. Bulls won by 20, I think, Lonzo had 27 points. He made 7 threes. Levine had 26 points. Demar had 38 on 15 of 23 shooting. And I remember I went out for a beverage with some bulls, people who are at the game that night at the hotel next door. And they were trying to pump the brakes as team people do about, you know, there's a long way to go, blah, blah, blah. But you could tell that they felt and it was hard to disagree with their feeling like we actually might have might be onto something here. And I was a bull pessimist and they knew that I was a bull specimens. And so I think they enjoyed that aspect of our get together, but look, I don't think this bulls team would have amounted to a huge playoff contender, had everything clicked right. You know, I said when they did all this, that I would bet against them ever winning more than one playoff series in a season during this sort of whatever era this is of these four guys together. But there's no denying that stylistically they had something and that Lonzo was the guy who connected it all together and they'd be way better team today instead of this mediocrity that they are with Lonzo and that it's just so sad. Like there's a chance his career is over. I mean, we don't know, but there's a chance his career is over at age 25 and that's just for anybody. It's just a bummer, man. I don't know. Is there anything else that's injuries that takes on injuries or like they suck? And it sucks, it just sucks. They generally are, yeah, I've been working on going through my old draft database and going through old projections and seeing Lonzo atop his draft class one that obviously included Jayson Tatum has been really depressing to see this week for the same reason. You know, you're saying the guys in that class are just kind of hitting their prime, even thankfully markelle faults who is the number one pick in draft ahead of Lonzo. It took a circuitous route to get here, but is finally playing some really good basketball for Orlando. We need to think of a more complex shape that goes into the 7th dimension to describe the path that Mark helpful took to this place. But like deer and fox first time all star this year, Tatum just reaching his prime. And yeah, for Lonzo to not be able to play at all at this stage of his career is tremendously disappointing. It hasn't been described this way, but it seems like it's been described as a cartilage transplant. So that's typically what's known as a de novo surgery. And I only know of two NBA players who have had that previously and it's been a while, Malcolm Lee, who is kind of long forgotten, had this in like 2013 and then Jason Richardson had it before his comeback with the sixers at the tail end of his career. So he was able to get back on the court. Malcolm Lee hasn't been the same player. We also like he was, I think, a rookie when he had this, so I don't know that we knew what kind of player he was going to be, but he actually is still playing basketball a decade later, professionally. So there is some precedent for being able to kind of play on after this surgery, but it definitely is something that if you get to that point, it's kind of a last resort. I don't have anything else to say. It just get well Lonzo. I miss watching you play. We all miss watching you play. I don't really want to talk about what it means for the bulls yet. So it sees the bulls are still not going to talk about these, but they got a season to play. Let's see how the season wraps up for them. The other bit of news yesterday that woj broke long rumored. It felt like this rumor popped up every year and accelerated when Michael Jordan sold a minority stake in the hornets to one of these guys last year, I think. But what was reporting Michael Jordan is in serious talks to sell a majority share of the hornets to two combined two buyers, one of whom rickshaw, who's based in New York, is a minority owner of the Atlanta Hawks. I think this is a big deal. I mean, it's Michael Jordan, so it's a big deal. And it's a big deal, apparently he's gonna retain a minority stake in the team, which I think is really good for the league and really good for him. Michael Jordan should be involved with the NBA. It's a big deal that he should be involved in the NBA. I think African American ownership is a big deal in the NBA at the highest levels in the front office on coaching staffs, all that. I'm very interested to see where this goes for the hornets because Stephen a Smith on his show today, Kevin. I don't know if you saw he had a little comment on this. And he said,
"malcolm lee" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"It can only go badly for a sports writer covering the league. So in only go badly no question. We talked about players being coach. -able i don't know if you've talked about actors being direct double but how coach correctable was the braun as i stated before he you know very much i mean but again that that comes with trust you know you have to gain the actors trust you have to you know engender That that bond you know where where he can you know if i say something to him he's gonna take it to heart and say okay. How do i. How do i do this. So you know no no insecurities no No kind of like you know back Talk about no resistance. You know he was gained for pretty much anything especially it was fun. You know what i mean and so in eighteen when it came to some of the emotional stuff where he has he has a little bit emotional in the movie. And it's got surprise people Because there's a father son story There is a disconnect between father and son in the movie and the journey of space. Jam is how they they they they start seeing i better and so i think it's a universal story and as far as like you know lebron he wanted to be great And he wants to be great and he was never somebody that was like. Oh i'm gonna be in my trailer or i can't come to set right now or what always on time You know really never left the set Even when they were like hundreds of people around you know So he was great. I had a really good time Directing him. I was gonna ask him. Maybe this already. You've already answered the question. But like i was gonna ask what was the most challenging that the script called for that you asked him to do was it. Some of these emotionally taught moments with his onscreen son Was there something else that that kind of made really for somebody who's obviously not a trained actor to try to embrace it you know. I think it's the emotional stuff actually wasn't that wasn't that difficult and i think that may have been you know because that i think about it may have been You know with the poor had been strengthened over over time You know comedy is hard right like an or even. Subtlety and nuance is hard. So you know i. I can't say that like i i. I'm thinking of a couple of specific lines but like they weren't like i always want something super specific. And so like i i'll i'll have them. Do you know number of takes and whatnot but nothing. That was like insurmountable or other than that. I felt like oh. That's that'll cut. Well you know so nothing nothing but he again you know for for somebody who's not a trained actor he did. He did very well. He's very believable. I mean people say oh. He's playing himself but like it's kind of hard to play yourself. You know i was gonna ask i we. We assume it's easier for the athletes is just play themselves. But that's that's not necessarily the case because he's he's not playing he's a truly playing himself. He's playing some version of himself in terms of of that did you go and look. Did you watch train wreck. Did you watch anything else that he had done before to get a gauge on. Like what you're dealing with here. Do you prepare yourself or do you just walking on day one and you just like go. Well you know. I had seen train wreck I've seen his commercials. Obviously you know seeing plenty of interviews and you get a sense of of a person With with those. That background That research and again. I don't i didn't do formal research i can. I have spent a little bit of time with him to talking about movies and stuff. So you know. I i am just hanging out with them is getting a sense of his personality. And what what i thought could be translated on screen. What strengths were that that we could capitalize on. But no i wouldn't say didn't extensive research on him. You know you just you know it's like you. Whatever an actor does in in their past you know in their commercial or or movies or television show is like you hope that they you know they could deliver lines is Believably authentically Then that's what you would she want And then you know your then you'll find out. Is that an actor or is that an actor that actually can actually deliver and sometimes you know it. It's like that would wrestle actors. You know they don't always cut together well or the or you have to cut them together in order to craft a better performance. I didn't really find that with lebron. I found that you know. He was a pretty solid in pretty consistent with with what he what he did. You know like when you come to like you know again comedy. You can't really. You can't rely on people who aren't naturally funny and he's funny. He's a funny guy and he loves the laugh but like you know. I've worked with some of the best comedians in the world. And like you know like they're able to improv stuff. And you can't do that with somebody like lebron you gotta give him some up and and by the way there were a couple nausea throughout then it and he was able to deliver them as well. So it's it's really kind of Capsule sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't jackie's letting us know that we're just about out of time. So last thing is what's the most memorable moment with him. You think onset if there if anything fits that whether it was a scene whether it or even if it was just onset but off camera you know like i said. I think that That time was shooting was is very memorable for me and just a great thing of memory of mine I think you know like him. Getting that emotional. Beat that i wanted to get is really strong. And i'm very proud. That he was able to go there and then like when he was off camera i had to have the the the sun be emotional as well so i was like. I need you to do that again. You know usually again house like it's going to help your your seed partner. And you know he he was. He was game for it so again. I think lebron just wanted. It wants the movie to be great in and look this tremendous pressure on him to says human being. You know as a basketball player. You know certainly following in space jam legacy. It's like you know. Hey it's he wants to be great and he took it very very seriously though. I will say this adds a whole other layer to the debate. An mj did not necessarily rate out. Well as an actor in that movie. So i hate to put you on the spot but does this. Is lebron win. The goat debate on acting alone on space jam versus space jam. Well we'll let the audience decide. I will tell you this. I will tell you. They're they're going to be plenty of people that you know no matter how well lebron does onscreen. That will say that you know jordan is better. You know what i'm saying. So you know i think i think lebron it's a very very good performance fair enough. Appreciate that you handle that perfectly a. We've probably run over. So jackie thank you for letting us slide here a little bit. But i know you've probably got a bunch of these stacked up so i would love to chat for another hour but we'll do it. Let's make it happen. Have absolutely no down the road. Let me know we'd love to have you back on on the podcast in folsom. It'd be great no doubt right.

Thank you for spending some time so before we talk about the film about lebron's role in this film. The obvious question in coming to this project. I assume you're an nba fan and you're a native new yorker. I assume knicks fan. But sometimes i shouldn't make those assumptions. What was what are your nba. Passions prior to lebron entering. Your your film life. it's funny Yes a huge. Nba fan huge basketball. Fan since I was early teenager And yeah i mean i. I'm starting to come back to the knicks You know i never left really but it's been difficult Having grown up in the eighties nineties and seeing patrick ewing who also went to my alma. Mater coaching al-matar. You know Is is You know it's hard to to see the futility and the mismanagement that's been happening You know So but it seems like they're turning around So i'm happy about that. I was was pulling for brooklyn Before they you know mortgage their future twice You know. I i feel like you really didn't all star team right now. There was some good pieces of a good team. Jared allen dinning and karen avert and let them all go so you know i. It's it's i love kyri. I love durant. I love hardened but dang all the same team. It's it's it's todd. And i will tell you that. The here's the other thing i am. Yes i am a new yorker. What am i button. My childhood buddies happens to be the president of the bucks. So i i do a little bucks loyalty as well. Believe mr fagin. That's right peter fame right now. I don't call him mr fagin. Reagan was his dad. But no he's he's peter to me and a bunch of names. I can't say podcast. You got some conflicting loyalties in the in the nets buck series. I guess so this. This leads me to this important question. Then i need the honest answer prior to working with lebron where you rooting for or against lebron fan was he. Somebody that you you gravitated toward has an nba fan. How what was your lebron standpoint. I tell you what i love. Lebron james love him you know. From from the moment he came into the league were mike consciousness. i've really enjoyed him in and and i've been ruining for him for very long time. we in fact we were. We were scheduled. It's work together twice before You know when he you know when he was and second thirty year league rich paul had called me about. You know. Possibly doing something with him. Couldn't i couldn't figure out what the what the idea was. And then we gotta do this thing with imagining universal about it like a fantasy basketball camp and we were going down the road with that like right before he joined the heat. So i've been lebron fan for a very long time i know i'm gonna date myself by saying like. Oh what's up super team. When he joined the heat i was like he could not find a way to win in cleveland. Then he came back to winning cleveland so i applaud him. I think he's a winner. I think he's you know he's stands for everything good in the world. You know in human beings. So i i really i really would for lebron and have for a while so that was an easy thing then to to be working with them. It wasn't like bringing in somebody who was like. I've been like boeing. You and like root for against your so. This was an easy easy thing to it was. It was an easy. You know thing for the brian. For sure i mean like you know. Bandana work with the guy You know And so it was it was. It was a great a great opportunity. I assume somebody in your position having worked in film for probably your entire life. You're kind of numb to celebrity. A certain point. But it's lebron james. There's a different kind of thing when it's athletes versus actors and everything else. Was there anything to are. There are nerves the first time you're working with lebron directing lebron anything you have to overcome as a fan now working with them as the director. Here's what i had to overcome. I had to overcome trying to be his friend. His boy known i mean like and and but because i was like. That's not going to serve me. Well it's not going to serve the movie. Well so i kept my kept my. You know my phantom at at at bay and said okay. This is the director actor relationship here Unfortunately we had met before and then he's got to notion that much better and the great thing was he was very trusting of me I guess because he had seen this up. And i had done and was when i'm giving direction is not the trust. You know that. I that. I'm i'm after something and it's funny. There was one time Where where i we. Were shooting an exterior in a basketball court. And lebron always takes time to shoot or whatever so so one time i was shooting with him and i had shot and i make sure not to shoot around with him at all like you know and it was communism i just i just did it. Very very sporadically like onset. When we're doing interior exterior. We had a little downtown. When i was shooting and i must have hit a eight neuro right and lebron says you can shoot. I stopped shooting after that. That's it he's never gonna see me shoot again because i'm never gonna get better than this. How far were you when you hit those eight shots in a row. After ask a. I was at least a topic. He extended respectable always respectable and he wouldn't have said that he would lebron james as you could shoot then that's legit no doubt at you you were right to go out on that Yeah that was it. Yeah i've i've rule personally. I will never ever try to do anything with the basketball. My hands well. Nba players are anywhere within a mile of me. It's.

Lebron when tap into that mode. I'm ready for war. War should listen to our podcast before the game. Coming in give you the fighting spirit. Tell us a little bit about about space jam before we before we let you go. You've been very generous with your time. But i'm very very curious about about this because that's that was a great first film this this this one is Pick up where it left off. How is it. How's it different than what is different First of all totally different from the first one that came out twenty five years ago. But i was very intimidated just from when i got when a script came to me and i'll set it on my desk. I was very intimidated. Because i understand you know the legacy behind the first one. I know i was. I was one that was like at all of it. I was twelve years old or eleven when it first came out and love the looney tunes. Obviously my ass for michael jordan is out of his world so very intimidated. But i was able to get myself to a point where i was like. I wanna i wanna do this. I felt like you know the space jam. Legacy is so iconic is so great. I wanted to be a part of the legacy and obviously the movie is now called. A legacy is kind of how about but We were able to. I worked with a great director of malcolm. Lee don cheetos is in a film as well opera. He's so i love him. He's helped me out a lot when we're all set but i just dove into it. I gave everything to all that green screen. And all that. I need you to look over here and just trust later. We're gonna we're gonna paint in a little character. You gotta look at like a little stand with an x. On it it's like working with just a nightmare right sean. Or the green screen. Green screen gives more. It was a nightmare the first few weeks. Of course it's weird right it so he's super weird because they're like no no no you're you're you're you have to be looking up so is that was that like a three picture deal or we're going to see how the first one goes or what did you do. Is it just the one. no no. it was just the one But i mean. Let's i'll be hearing so much about people's reaction to a so far. It has actually seen a movie so far screen. And so you know warner you know wants to Tackle it again. I wouldn't mind trying to see. We could fit the right script in and and keep it going but i think this one is gone on surprise a lot of people. This is a family movie as a family movie with a lot of last obviously a lot of looniness dealing with the damn tunes they daughter excited about it or are yourself or what. My daughter is super excited about it She doesn't know. I mean she's too young to know about the original tunes but now because of our dads she's getting back into the sat and was she like. Wow look yup. My my whole family stopped by set. You know a few times and they just like wow and my boys are sixteen fourteen. They only care about how. Cool that the person that's playing them in the movie. Looks like daddy look like me as he wear. My hairstyle is dressed in a right way. Like i don't want to buy plan me. Not lonely kassim actors to play your son's yes. We cast actors to kind of look like my family. We changed the names but they are yes. I got older son younger son and a daughter and a wife in the movie. so yes. that's kinda. Your kids didn't have approval over that casting. No i didn't let them because they would've took too long to work and after after a long hours did you mix them up. All the kids much almost fixing family whole ones logs on fixing to whitehall was good. Yeah right so so lebron. Let me ask you after all this stuff and everything. You're doing get back to to basketball. You've had a lot of the lakers already. I don't wanna put you on the spot. But i mean you could conceivably just keep going. You're so good at what you do. You're still the top of the game. How long do you see yourself playing for the lakers. And how cool is it. Playing for the lakers. At great storied franchise. Yeah i may. I truly hope that. I can finish my career with the lakers. And how many years that is if this is four five six whatever said we all continue to play a game you know. I love being in. La my family loves being la. Being historical franchise like the lakers or something like is like me being a space jam now. I never thought it'd be possible. You'd think about kareem magic and will in jay west and elgin baylor.

'New Legacy,' New Lola: Why 'Space Jam' wanted to do better by one Tune
"On on the new space Jam Way Got lots more information on the new space camp film called Space Jam. A new Legacy film stars LeBron James playing himself who has a young son Dong, who wants to become a game developer. They get trapped in a digital world by a rogue A I. And it's upto LeBron Bugs Bunny and the rest of the tune squad to get them out of there against the evil goon squad. It has also been reported that Space Jam, too, will have a slew of N B A and W NBA stars including Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Clay Thompson and Shinobu McKay. He also got a first look at the re imagines, Lola Bunny, filmmaker Malcolm Lee told Entertainment Weekly about the re fresh quote. It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong capable female characters also said that this film is a better movie than space jam. All right, let's go. Better than the original space jam. That is a lofty goal. I believe it when I see it. LeBron James, though, is not even on the best team in the NBA right now. As of right now, that title goes to the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are 27 9 on the season. The next best teams in the league have 24 wins, so it was probably odd for them, at least when the two jazz players who are reserved for the NBA All Star game, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were picked dead last in the All Star draft by team captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant. James said it was because he never played as the Utah jazz and video games when he was younger. No shade. Though the Jazz is most recent game was a lost, however, to the Philadelphia 70. Sixers and things got heated on the court. Mitchell was injected with 30.5 seconds left in overtime. He smashed a cooler as he left the court. Both he and go bear had words for what they thought was bad officiating in that loss. They were then each fined for being critical of the rest. Mitchell $25,000 and go bare $20,000. All the drama. Remember when artist said today? Oh god. McKay was in Space Jam. She's also in this Ah, conversation with Rudy Gobert, as he reflects on the season and his legacy. First of all, we have a great group of guys. You know, Like, Like I just said, when you have a group of a guy that's willing to sacrifice for one another and do all the little things to make each other better. You know, your team just go from here to here and, you know, obviously we have a lot of talent We have. Ah, Very good coach. We were pushing staff and I think we were very dumping a team up with both hands. You know, we still got ourselves. We still think that we are defensive team. You know, I'll just friends is gonna be what separates us from being good for being great. And we just don't embrace it. You know, we have. Ah, Wei have another talent and a lot of guys that can step up for a minute. When it comes to your

Everybody wants to know Stacy. How exactly is this thing gonna work? Sure. Thanks chef. So basically, we were all used to seeing what we call the pre show or the coming attractions in movie theaters. So all we've done is moved that to your device, and you get to watch show of of coming attractions or product placement or brand placement related to the movie you picked and once you've completed it you earn the points to go to the movies for free. That's it. Okay. And. You're in a Kickstarter right now. Yes. And so the first question anytime does anybody does a kick starter is will it really happen? Yes. It's going to happen. Yes. When so the first people will begin testing it this summer. So we're looking at July, and then we created three waves where there's the highest group that goes in first, then a second group, and then the third group, and then once they've all tested, and we've got any kinks worked out, then they can all invite their friends, but today, it is a closed group. So if you don't go in through the Kickstarter, it's something you won't be able to experience for a while. And how much did you? Have you raised from kick star? I didn't look at it today. I know that we set a minimum goal of ten thousand. I know it passed yesterday or the day before twenty thousand I think we still have another thirty days to go. And so it's just getting started. We we knew we wanted a group of beta testers, which is why we wanted people love movies wanted people go to the movies. Not only will they be the best people. But they're also the hardest please because they're used to doing it a lot. So that's why we decided to go the kickstart around. Okay. So I love movies. How do I know that? I'm pretty sure I'm going to actually see in the movies that I wanna see so on the app, you pick a movie you've watched that pre show we give you a card the virtual card our physical card your choice. You then go to the movie theater? And purchase a ticket of that movie that you wanted to see so you're in complete control over that. We've just loaded those funds to that card in your account. Okay. They have ads in movie theaters now and nobody's let me see movies for free. So what's your pitch to the advertiser? Here. The advertiser who advertises in theaters is not sure whether people are watching those ads or not with us. We guarantee that they are. And we have that. It's not only that they're watching it. But we can verify that the person is watched it. So the ad dollars are worth a lot more than I hope they watched it. I don't know if they're at the bathroom or the concession stand. Who knows this way, you actually know and you can bear. And you do not have to have deals with the movie chains because it's directly advertisers, paying you. And you're paying me. Correct. Right. Tell us before we go to your original idea movie past how it came to be what? You doing sure? So I had started a film festival urban world, which is still around. It's the largest minority film festival. One of the great directors that came out of it as a voodoo Rene and a few other directors, and like, Malcolm Lee, and Tim story, and we were trying to figure out a way that we could take this audience, and we would get them all to pay a monthly fee and every month, we were going to actually put a movie in theaters, but we were gonna four wall the theater based on this group coming together. So it's kind of could we do a an indie distribution, you know, a circuit. And someone said, well, why wouldn't you do that for movies in general? And it was I think it was Travis read who was a CEO of lows at the time. He and I were having a conversation. And I said, it's an interesting idea. And that was the beginning of the thought. But why wouldn't you have a subscription platform for people who go to the movies quite often? So forty million Americans go to the movies once a month, and what we found when we launched movie pass was people who went once a month started going to times a month. If you went one point five you ended up going three times a month, and it doubled your movie going behavior. So that was how it got started. And it just kept going and going and going people loved it and the idea and the concept, and then it just took off. But, but they were people were going to too many movies movie pass could make a living looked at what the new owners their approach is their approach the original business model is different. So the way that that I was designing it is very similar to the concert business. So when you go to a concert you. Get to your seat and you'll run and maybe get a hotdog or something. But when you leave that concert, you go and you grab merchandise memorabilia, right? So besides the ticket. There's two other revenue streams food and beverage and merchandise will we believed was when that person's leaving Star Wars. Why not say, hey, do you want to own this film? And if they say yes on their phone when St. date happens is a digital copy, and you'll charge them. So you were capturing the enthusiasm of the film at that moment. Right. So your idea was get him to the movie theater and sell them other stuff. And now you've got pre show. Yep. What Watson watt some stuff on your app and get a free ticket launching in the summertime to your Kickstarter audience. So if I'm not a Kickstarter person, you have wait when am I going to see this don't know yet? So whether it'll happen in two thousand nineteen we don't. No, I would say it's not gonna happen in twenty nineteen given that the waves of the people just in the Kickstarter. The last group doesn't even start using it till November. So it goes July September November are the three different waves. So listening hope for twenty twenty or pay fifteen bucks and go join the Kickstarter and do it now and help give us feedback because we want people who like going to movies to give us feedback that we can make a next generation product that it's that works well for every all right?
