"And Glenn Taylor just ordered everybody. Under him just figured this out. Go move into wherever you can move him. And they move Jimmy Butler to a really good team. It's not in their conference, but it's a really good basketball team. And he may just put them over the top into the NBA finals. Okay. So it's the same thing was happening. But the sabotage ended with last year's trade deadline because Dan Gilbert after that trade deadline was the executive of the year. In the NBA because my Mandla Shannon, Sharpe came in the day after the trade deadline, and you were ready to be the parade. Man. We go into the NBA finals. That's what I think about what he did. He again, he knew he made a mistake on Thomas because he thought he was healthier than he was. And he had a career threatening hip injury. And he was not right. He was talking. Right. He was talking big and bold in bad and play yet. But he couldn't live up to it. Right. Hasn't played yet. I, but he finally had the surgery that he probably should have had before he goes. Okay. So he got rid of Isaiah Thomas in all the son. He got rid of Jae Crowder. He got rid of Derrick rose, and he got rid not to he moved Wayne on down to his semi-retirement back in Miami. And all the sudden, they get Jordan Clarkson, Rodney hood, and Larry Nance and George hill. It was a bonanza, and you were ecstatic over that. And you thought we are back in business you and Chris Broussard were high fiving right here on this. Desk my ride about right? You write about what I went today finals? Okay. But what's not to like about that? Because they had a chance, and then well, we're out have career and all those guys. Okay. But while we're revising history need, I bring up the fact, and these are just facts that in game one of the NBA finals at oracle at Oakland with fifteen seconds left the quote unquote, best player on the planet. According to you had the ball in his hands with little Steph curry switched onto him at the top of the circle down one point with this Hotta hand from outside as he had on Sunday night in Miami skipper. We're gonna have to go through this. Okay. Well, they did it. Well, I'm not gonna let you sweep it back onto your carpet. Lebron's going to bring up history, and Cleveland that was the turning point. That's all okay. Let's let's give LeBron with that game. They're not beating. Thank you feel. You don't you got a good shot because the Golden State Warriors can be a little fragile at their core. Mentally, we're seeing it right now they are unraveling and again, sometimes Kevin can go south sometime Steph and clay can be a little soft and they can lose their shot. Who knows what could happen? If you beat them in game one in their free shine down. Okay. And you know, what Houston won that series? Chris Paul didn't. He didn't get hurt and game fix. I know, but he got hurt right on schedule. If he ins that game. Why why didn't they ended the game six and then game seven we'll I just think they had him on the ropes? Lebron coulda had them on the roads. And then by the way, I'm gonna finish this because the witnesses don't wanna hear this but LeBron proceeded not to take the shot down one passenger chill. Obviously quickly got tackled by Klay. Thompson makes the first misses second one, obviously JR has a glitch abode Glaister. Oh, okay. But he's running away from the basket. He didn't take. Sean, although it would have been a desperation shot and delay. Four percent chance. Lebron James goes to the bench. He'd goes to the bench eight do you? Remember do any separates himself from the team and completely melts down the biggest fan. Trim. Just can't get it. It just this last week Canada Durant down meltdown game out the final. You've got all you could ask for it's tied going to overtime and LeBron is pouting. And then he can do give the game came as tied. Ron is pouting and refuses to shoot for the first two and a half minutes of the five minute overtime. The Golden State goes up seven, and it's over and you are sweat and the new NBA's best player, according to you. Kevin Durant and Anna tab bone game..

"But he's closer to the end and is the beginning. And he does not want to wait. Although he knows the likelihood of him getting to in winning championship. This year is very very slim. But that doesn't mean he doesn't want to put his best effort forward and patience. Everybody can't coach everybody can't. Lied because that patients could never be a coach because I don't have the patience. I'm gonna tell you something one time and expect you to be able to pick it up whether you visual learner war visual guy. Skipped, you know. You can tell me something. But let me see let me see somebody else run it. They showed me someone fam- knocking go do. And I'll get LeBron is saying is tough is tough. When you were the best player the expectations of through the roof. Nobody's like male LeBron's come into. The gotta get gotta give them deep into the playoffs. And being Ford six they lose their first two ballgames. And then losing these close ballgame, man. I did not envision this. But I'm not surprised. I know a lot of people don't say, I can't believe LeBron say this. We always a lot of people who are they you know. I don't know. I haven't even spoken. I'm just wondering just one. You you. Did you know a lot of people a lot of us trying to preemptively? Do what you always try to take. My argument. But anyway, I was saying a lot of people will say, I can't believe LeBron said this. Why would he say that we always preach? We won't athletes to be honest. Become honest. All of a sudden, we don't like honesty. So LeBron James almost crack, but I had to realize I the hill I signed up for find up. So with that being said, I'm going to remain patient. But that doesn't mean I'm still not going to continue to drive drive. A Hopi drives it last seconds of tight game has occurred go shoot those free throws he missed with Doug at home. But you know, he hung on for like ten seconds. Out of relief off the hook. And get what the last two minute reports that was not a golden just because I told you it was a goal tin, and you agreed with me. To what the to hear what? Is told me and you agreed with me yesterday. You said, yeah. That was probably a goal ten. You said that I was wrong. I hear about is. He missed the two free throws that should a lost them the game until some out Kouzmouk. Gotta tap. And then he got the rebound. I don't know what happened after that tap. Lebron just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Alex Len was lost. Hap- Ruffy who? So is your terror? You know, it's funny Ginny, I interpreted LeBron's comments extremely differently than my Mandla, Shannon. Sharpe. Did I don't know? I interpreted them by the white before I get to my response. You said going into this year that you thought Cleveland roster was better than the Lakers roster. Right. It doesn't matter. What I tell you. What lebron? So they were better last year, and they were in the least conference. So I don't know if that is two plus two four. Lebron things might be entirely different. But I know it is already starting Laker fans for those who have not followed LeBron's career. This is classic vintage passive aggressive. Lebron James blame deflection. He's trying to say don't look at me. Look at them. He's basically pointing the finger already at teammates when he has no reason. No, he has he cannot point fingers at anyone right now. But look in the mirror and pointed at yourself because by anybody standards, especially LeBron's he's having a subpar year so far and if I'm any of his teammates, I'm thinking, wait a second. You almost crack do how many games they played thirteen almost cracked seven and six you almost crack how about us. We're we're you will we needed you most do those six losses and just for the record just for people who've lost track here. Lebron now ranks fifteenth. League in PE are which is the player efficiency rating, which is the determining factor of how well you're playing overall in the NBA fifteenth, and that's his worst in twelve years in the NBA, and that is three full points below his career average of twenty eight he's now at twenty five.

"I didn't see that in that post. I didn't see that line. You're reading between. I'm reading between two Lang. There's always meeting LeBron does. Do you. You read the bible, the bible parables, it doesn't say exactly what's going to happen. You gotta read between the lines getting. That's why a lot of able wasn't passive aggressive. Moment to you why you have so many different meanings cause some people take it one way reader between the land and some people take it another way because they're really between who you got to kind of figure these things up. But I'm one of the foremost parties like Neo ties into gras about space and all that other stuff. He's one of the most thirty is when it comes to LeBron James. I'm one of the foremost departed him extreme objectivity. When do. So let's put this in perspective. Miss town. Okay. My Mandla Shannon, Sharpe all Lonzo ball a bust. But guess what? LeBron James has just crowned him a young king Beth. Not what I say. I said he's not transcend like you. So it's interesting that your man LeBron that's that's a mouthful that's a post full man. That's that's going along as I know he used it on Simmons. Did he use it on Donovan, defend. You have to be careful. He's been any call them son, you call your son? Yeah, Roddy young. Okay, that's fine. I get that one, but again, lonzo's not a client of LeBron's like Ben Simmons. So again, anytime LeBron speaks, I'm suspicious anytime he posts. I'm looking for the hidden agenda. I'm looking for what could be operating deeper here. So my first thought yesterday was not about patients it was about is he trying to motivate Lonzo. Oh, because we know that you know, maybe he's trying to light a fire that didn't often get lit should have last year doing lonzo's rookie year or was he trying to get even with lavar by heaping praise on Lonzo and setting them up for failure this year? I don't know. I'm thinking that's really deepened and ugly, like like a wicked dot? I don't. I can't see that. Was he trying to increase lonzo's trade value in case they do need to move him? I don't know between the line. Okay. Well, I'm just saying, I'm trying to see what's happening here, but in the end I walked away from this thinking, I believe that LeBron has that much respect for lonzo's game because I think rare respects rare in Lonzo is no matter what you say about whether he's not transcended he has a gift. You can't teach or coach that LeBron has see it feel it pass it before it even happens on so can do that. And again, if you look at across the. Board lonzo's contributions last year. He was the best defender on the Lakers last year. He led the team in steals. He led the team in rebounding for much of the year. He was second in blocked shots on the Lakers to the big guy. You know, like what? What more? The little big things you couldn't ask for much more from live. Right. I'd like to see the fire lit a little more often. I do think LeBron will be great for Lonzo lighting as far I think Lonzo will feed off LeBron's greatness just just his because their games are similar except Lonzo can attack the basket or hasn't shown that he could attack the basket LeBron can. But remember, Lonzo ball is six feet seven inches tall, and it looked like he got in the gym. You can see it right there. He looks a lot better and he looked last year. He looks like he's got a little bit of thority that he can play with his body grew. He needed that grow along with them. Well, that's he anymore. You need to go to. That's fine too..

"So that means Lonzo the number two pick in a draft. Probably gonna come up the bench. He's telling him you're gonna come. You were born for this. Moment. Now your time might not be this year. There will come a time that you're going to be asked to be that guy and you are young king. And when he says, king king LeBron there's only been one king NBA skip Bayless. There've been a lot, but when you are the king, you can king somebody else. Yeah, crown. So basically he's saying, look, LeBron dementia. He's the old guy LeBron to these guys is what the Kobe generation thought of Michael. This is what LeBron is to this generation. He's the Michael Jordan of this generation like Michael was to the generation before that, you know that I that I do, and so he's a, he's trying. He's trying to is going to be okay, I understand. This is not how you diagrammed at how you thought being the number two overall pick in the draft and come into your hometown team and being the face of that team, your time will come. But I won't LeBron to be very careful of throwing this term around because we thought term around too much loses its meaning. You can't keep saying young king and you say that the Ben Simmons say that the Donald mentioned, you say, all these guys, it's kind of like somebody have great performance and you have had goat pretty soon. Goat doesn't mean the same thing once did, because all you do is just throw that term out. So be mindful of that words have meaning, and if you want them to have the significance of what you're trying to partake to to impart on on someone. Yeah, just be careful throwing that term out too much. I get what he's trying to do. I get what he's saying. He's trying to tell Lonzo, hey, you probably not going to start what being reported raging Rondos going to start, but your time will come. You born for this moment. You was born to be great. Greatness might be put on hold for a little while, but just wait your turn. I didn't see that in that post. I didn't see that line. You're reading between the law. I'm reading between two Lang. There's always me LeBron does. Do you read the bible, the bible in parables, it doesn't say exactly what's going to happen. You gotta read between the lines getting. That's why a lot of able wasn't passive aggressive. Moment ain't to you what you have so many different meanings cause some people take it one way because they're reader between the land and some people take it another way because they're really between who you got to kind of figure these things up.

Multiple reports, say the Lakers have agreed to a one year deal with Michael Beasley was a teammate of LeBron's in Miami Beasley was the number two overall pick in two thousand eight, but has had a history of drug issues during his career.

We're joined by EVA's one NBA analyst. Chris, I'm gonna get this one starting with skip because I wanna know what you think. What is going on here just for the record, I'm covered the NBA even longer the my main Chris Broussard. I started covering the NBA when I was at the LA times back in nineteen seventy seven, and I covered these Los Angeles Lakers. So I've been around for a little while and I've seen thing or to this team now sets up as the most difficult to coach team. I can ever remember. Maybe I'm forgetting one somewhere along the trail, but I don't think so because let me just count the w-. Ways. Michael Beasley love is game, loved him before his draft. He's now been on seventeen and eleven years for reason. Rajon Rondo has been on six teams in the last five years for a reason land. Stevenson has been on seven teams in the last six years. For a reason. Engine bail McGee has been on sixteen eleven years for various reasons. They're all in different ways, extremely difficult to coach from night tonight. They can be moody, they can be unpredictable. That can be a little knuckle headed in their own various ways. This is now the NBA's version of the expendable 's and I can't believe that LeBron James signed off on all four of them because I'm pretty sure magic had to take each one of these still LeBron say, you good, you good, you good. He's had history with all four in various ways playing for or against them or with an or against them. And it's like he now has the equivalent of four JR Smith on his team. Not that Rondos knuckle headed. He can just be. Difficult high basketball. I q Doc. Rivers finally said, I just can't coach him because he thinks he's the coach of my team thinks he knows more than I do. He was the driving force behind New Orleans rise last year into the plows past Portland in the first round. It was highly impressive. And then the pelicans said, no, no, no, we we're not going to go for with Rondo because he's difficult to coach. So all the sudden porn, Luke Walton at age. Thirty eight is sitting in the volatile mix that he's surrounded with with a lot of bench players who are going to want minutes and make waves of if they don't get their minutes and he's got a lavar ball, sort of hanging over his head from above and you never know which night lavar is just going to go off on Luke Walton and say, the team has quit on him or he should be fired or whatever. So if this team does get off to a little bit of Iraqi start my Mandla Shannon Sharpe says, yes, it could get off to a rocky start. Everybody thinks this is going to be. Kind of a rough mix. You know where the fingers are going to get pointed early on. The thirty eight year old head coach down at the end of the bench, right? And again, LeBron is going to have to help him coach his team. If in fact, he signed off on these four guys, but I'm gonna remind you. There's been a long running theme in the league that I, I heard around the San Antonio Spurs back in Stephen Jackson days, and I love Stephen Jackson, but he was considered early on in his career despite all of his game and all of his intangibles in character that he did have basketball character. He was considered a knucklehead. He could do knucklehead things in..

So if this team does get off to a little bit of a rocky, start, my Mandla Shannon Sharpe says, yes, it could get off to a rocky start. Everybody thinks that this is going to become a rough mix. You know where the fingers are going to get points early on. The thirty eight year old head coach down at the end of the bench, right? And again, LeBron is going to have to help him coach his team. If in fact, he signed off on these four guys, but I'm gonna remind you. There's been a long running theme in the league that I, I heard around the San Antonio Spurs back in Stephen Jackson days, and I love Stephen Jackson, but he was considered early on in his career despite all of his game and all of his intangibles in character that he did have basketball character. He was considered a knucklehead. He could do knucklehead things in..
