They probably do have room to work it out but it might be a question of. Jj watt or john johnson and leonard floyd in that scenario and that world do you go. Jj watt or do you go the other guys.

Angels suspend pitching coach Callaway after misconduct report
"There is an ugly story floating around today involving the angels pitching coach. Go ahead okay. So this was reported last night. Pay the athletic. Mickey callaway is currently the pitching coach for the angels. He's been suspended and the reason. Why is five. Women have accused him of lewd behavior. All of these women are in the media so this is very similar to the story that got jeered porter fired as the gm of the mets last week. The story from the athletic is very detailed. And i'll just read from part of the story. It says calloway aggressively pursued at least five women who work in sports media sending three of them inappropriate photographs and asking one of them to send nude photos in return. He sent them unsolicited electronic messages and regularly commented on their appearance in a manner that made them uncomfortable. In one instance thrust his crotch near the face of a reporter as she interviewed him in another. He told one of the women that if she got drunk with him. He chair information about the mets that one paragraph and i would encourage people who are interested in the story to go to the athletic and read it. If you hear that one paragraph you think well this guy. It's going to be like jared porter. He'll be fired today. Yeah he has not been fired today. And the reason for that is that in california and i don't know if this is different than in new york but in california you are entitled if you claim that you didn't do these things and he does claim that he didn't do it right then. You're entitled to an investigation before they can fire you so He since calloway has denied all wrongdoing that under california labor law. He's entitled to an investigation before he has terminated so the angels have suspended him so he ended up the team's not meeting right now anyway so we don't know when the baseball season's going though but mickey callaway is probably not going to be the pitching coach. The they're probably be some due process here and then they'll eventually fire him and the angels won't have a lot of time to go out and find a new pitching coach. We don't even know when the baseball season is going to start right. Baseball players union wants to start at the normal time. The owners want it to be pushed forward a month so spring training and march as opposed february players wanted to start in february on time. And there's a big disagreement go figure a big disagreement between the players and the owners in major league baseball right so we don't know when the baseball season going to start but back to this. Calloway story It is what i've learned. And what i learned in when we reported that cheered porter story is this is. This goes on with all sorts of female reporters in all sorts of sports. And i. there's no other way to handle this then to develop zero-tolerance people aren't getting it. I can't imagine ever sending a what was it. That porter sent forty one unanswered techs. And now this guy. Mickey callaway desert to five different female reporters. The these people are trying to do their jobs. What are what are you not getting here. I think anybody who did with jared porter did or what mickey calloway did meets professional help. They need it. Didn't need to go to a psychiatrist. And and so. You agree by the way this investigation. That means you're trying to dot. Every i and cross every t they wanna make sure they've got a rock solid case. Get all the evidence together all of it together and say here's the case why you're getting fired. He suspended he ultimately will be fired. There's no way am if this story is one hundred percent accurate. We have no reason to believe it. Isn't it seems very well sourced but i mean you're you are innocent until proven guilty in this world so he should have a chance now but wait. Wait what if you look at the story. And there's proof of the phone and it says in the story lays it all out like the in this story itself there's proof of screenshots of these text messages and appropriate text messages and they said that they saw the lincoln messages and they saw the emails. I mean just from our point of view without doing any type of investigation. Don't you think that that right. There is enough to be like okay. There's plenty of proof here to show that at least you know. But you've gotta your own investigation. You can't say all right. The athletic to the investigation. Let's run with this because right now. It's the athletic versus mickey callaway. Calloway's denying it didn't happen but can't the angels say we don't want somebody that's being accused of that by multiple people on our team whether it all you got gotta be careful if you fire somebody for 'cause they and somehow this is wrong but if it's just a moral thing it's a character clause like the you know like the whole thing he's going but he's going to be fired he's going to fire all they want is to say here's the case. Here's all the pins. Mickey lewd deny it yet lindsay wing differences and make if they've suspended him now and they're in. The plan is to fire him as soon as they carry out this investigation. So he's not around the team. He's not employees he suspended. He's out the bad look for them not to just fire them right off the bat because like saying that they need to have an investigation is basically saying that you know there. There's if they're prolonging the inevitable like you guys say like that's what they're doing basically what the difference that they fire him today or in two

Pepsi Will Cut Super Bowl Ads For Flagship Soda to Focus on Halftime Show
"One of the biggest and most reliable sponsors of the annual football extravaganza known as the super bowl. They're benching their traditional super bowl ads for its flagship soda. Instead they're going to quote double down on their existing twelve minutes in the pepsi super bowl halftime show and build it out like never before and quote according to a pepsi spokesperson. In fact many advertisers that might normally flock to the super bowl may not be able to take part this year. Due to the way the pandemic has affected business could the pandemic signal the end of multimillion dollar super bowl commercials as we know them. Swipe left or swipe right i. I think it's made. I'm swiping right especially for this year. I can see how companies won't won't spend ten million dollars to make a super bowl commercial. Yeah you know. here's the thing. There are a lot of categories of advertisers. Where doesn't doesn't make sense to advertise right now. You know there are restaurants in there are oh tells hotels and all these other sponsors. Yeah i think this year just as a one year thing this year because of the pandemic probably the multi-million dollar super bowl ad will not exist pepsi. You'll get a lot of bang out of their halftime show. They always do. I think it's the weekend this year.
NBA Fines Philadelphia 76ers’ Daryl Morey $50,000 For Tweet About James Harden
"Last of basketball operations daryl. Morey is getting in trouble with the twitter again all right. He's been fined fifty thousand dollars for violating the nba anti-tampering policy the finest in response to a to a december twentieth tweet about the houston rockets superstar. James harden obviously gio more used to be there. The tweet was deleted several minutes later. Celebrated the one year anniversary of heart and breaking the rockets franchise assists record more told the league. It was an inadvertent post from an automated app. Now more was hired by the seventy sixers less than two weeks after resigning as the rockets manager. And obviously he. The sixers are one of the franchises that have considered trading james harden john. Do you think that maury deserve to be fine for tampering. Here for that. Automated tweet just congratulating james or the one year anniversary of breaking the record. I don't think he should have been fined. But let me say this. I think adam silver is the best commissioner in sports. I think he's super smart. I think that daryl didn't endear has been a guest on our show. Many times may mason. And i both loved daryl. I think daryl didn't read the room here in other words. Tillman for tita. And the rockets are in a mess. Right now with harden. He has their best player. He wants out. Everyone's connecting the dots saying that darryl would love to have him in philadelphia so for darryl to poke that particular bear at this time is a bad look the way this went down and tell me if you agree is as soon as that tweet happened. Somebody in houston called the league office and said this is bs. Were in the middle of trying to navigate a crisis down here. And this guy's congratulating a player and making us look bad. And i think the league had to react at that point and so i wouldn't have find him but i understand why the league did. What do you think yeah. I think i was surprised when i saw that because i thought his tweet was pretty harmless. But i think you're right. I think that that you know james. Initially when he first asked for the trade didn't really have any representation. Okay didn't have an origin at that time is he's always kind of just like his mom and he's he's since tapped into wasserman those guys'll so he's got different representation now they can handle things but initially. There was a lot of consternation amongst the rockets. When darryl was interested daryl's sixers darrow. Were interested in trading for him. Right you know is there. Was there. Contact with darrell. James like there's this. There's a lot of stuff that really doesn't smell right with the rockets and the sixers and james harden and so whether this tweet was made it on time serving. It's just he. Daryl needs to be way more careful and the whole automated app. I just. I don't know if i buy that. I don't know if i bet either. I so i understand. Let's just say this ninety probably ninety eight percent of the time out of silver gets it right so i think that there's probably a backstory to this that all of us don't know and darryl poking the bear in houston at this particular time was probably not the smartest move. But it's not money they're owned by a bunch of hedge fund guys in philadelphia. It darryl can afford it. I think it'll probably go away now.

Jerry West allegedly talks recruiting Kawhi Leonard to Clippers
"Start with what i think is the most fascinating story of the day little offbeat little out there little weird but absolutely interesting. Do you know where i'm going. I disagree with you about all that but go ahead and explain you. Don't think it's fascinating and this guy is full of crap. No the voice okay. Let's let's set it up so this is a story that started bubble up earlier this week. A guy named johnny wilks is suing jerry west for not making the two point five million dollar payment that he was promised in exchange for his help in landing by the clippers and the clippers went on denied. The claims and said jerry. West didn't even know this guy today way. When did the cooper say that in their statement clippers or providing. Nba evidence that these allegations are false. Right but i've never heard the cooper see. You never knew this guy okay. I'll read the clippers statement lawsuit kabajani wha- replete with inaccuracies allegations are baseless. The clippers are fully cooperating the nba in this investigation Blah blah blah clippers are providing the nba with evidence that the allegations are false. They never denied specifically nine. That's johnny wolverine on the voice mail. So there's a voicemail and so the clippers are out denying it. Meanwhile this guy named johnny wilkes released a voicemail that clearly jerry west right. No no dispute that it's jerry west right right The jerry west left on johnny wilks phone hit that hordic. Excuse me this. Is jerry calling You know. I really want to thank you for know trying to help her. This morning. that everyone over the lakers can thank going getting I just. I had hard to believe that he would want to go to. This show. Very would not even be winning. Getty name in the paper. And he wouldn't be the face of the franchise s richer might be the best player on the team but Hope things are well and will again. I really really appreciate everything. you've done. we will I'll keep your prized. What goes on. But i do wanna get together with you privately and and love to take you to dinner and even sam if he's arou- so we can so i can lease they married to you guys for being so generous and helpful. I'll take care talk you sometimes so so really really appreciate your help really appreciate your offering to take him to. Dinner is a long way from offering him. Two point five million dollars. And did you see the other stuff. This guy wilks is alleging was on the table. That's the most fast. Okay so now. I know why the nba opened up an investigation. Or yesterday you ask me well. Why if this guy is just some money grubber. Why would the nba care. Here's why they care in the lawsuit wilkes also alleges that the if leonard signed with the clippers leonard uncle dennis would receive a house in southern california along with travel expense and that clippers owner steve balmer would fund a hundred million dollar marketing campaign for kawhi leonard. So if if any of that is true that is a blatant violation of the. That's circumventing the salary cap rules. You're giving him value more over and above what his contract pays right. But i think this guy loses all credibility when he says that jerry west was going to give them two point five million dollars just for helping him talked to qui- jerry west doesn't need johnny wilks to talk to anybody and so i have trouble believing this guy. Johnny wilks is. I mean if lie about that chances are you would lie about this. One hundred million dollar marketing campaign the slush fund for uncle. Danettes you are. You actually think this guy. Johnny wilks is telling the truth. Look it's the clippers. It's the clippers you know. They were desperate for desperate for them. They're nowhere without kawhi. He's become the second where them while they're nowhere nowhere with them to write But but this is the centerpiece of their france. The cornerstone that they're building around. Why would they not go to the wall and do anything. It took to get cold leonard. Well i i think the opened an investigation because of those last two points. They made the gets a house and travel expense account and the one hundred million dollar marketing campaign for quiet. You can't do that. Because then free agency is a complete sham. It just goes to ever has the most money if you can offer all that other stuff. So that's why they're looking into it now. They're looking into it. Because this johnny wilks lawsuit consistent. Johnny woke lot is going to say this stuff wouldn't even come up without johnny walk so there's already credibility in the lawsuit. I don't think well no. I disagree that the johnny looks credible in any way. But here's what. Here's what. I'll say i've known jerry west for thirty years. I don't think jerry west would be this stupid now. Of course i could be wrong but jerry's been one of the most upfront direct. And he's almost too candid. Your can be very very candid with everybody. He deals with the i n for johnny. Will you know it's. He's shooting at the king here. Johnny wilks and there's so many people know jerry and he has such a body of work that would indicate he would never do anything like this. That i don't think johnny luke's can win. Unless he has another audiotape. Where with jerry sing. I'm going to give you two point. Five million if you get us why. I think his lawsuits dead in the water. What do you think well. you know. it's interesting. I think there might be something here. Yeah i don't know how you're getting there. This is this is steve bomber. This is a guy who's made of money. This was a guy who's desperate to get his team on the map in los angeles where they are not on the map. Frankly haven't been on the map and certainly worn on the map before qui- so is it. Possible that steve balmer offered extra monetary benefit to kawai in order to get them. I think that's worth an investigation.
Would the Philadelphia 76ers Regret Trading Ben Simmons for James Harden?
"So a wo- jr is reporting. Adrian roggin ascii that. The sixers are now willing to include. Ben simmons intrigued todd for james harden but they are nowhere close to a deal. Lt would you. Trade ben simmons for james harden if power which team six. So if i'm the sixers. Do i want a pair. James harden with joel embiid. You see pictures of james harden yesterday. He looks like he may have put on the greg bergman little extra little extra dance harda and was one of the big criticisms with joel embiid that embeds outta shape the beat is oftentimes out of shape as well. Yes i haven't heard that hurt a lot but oh no him. Being out of shape is a thing. So okay if you're asking me. If i want to trade away my fit superstar bring in an odor. Maybe not always fit superstar to pair with my youngest not so thin superstar. I'm gonna say no. I don't wanna do that. Trae now for ben simmons. You have to buy. His hair's not taken benson yeah. I don't think that's going to sell the the one thing. And we've we've read this tim. Tim macmahon i think wrote this article about james harden that he really alienated his teammates. Because it's described in that article that when you have. The james harden experienced that means he's running the entire show he decides if he's late for film session film session weights if he wants to go to atlanta or if he wants to fly somewhere early to party you go where james goes when you sign up for the james harden experienced. He runs your organization. I read that. I read this piece today. After i heard you guys talking about it and the line that caught me was it was an organized. Aau team that that. If if they were they were playing in la. James one of the team to stick around an extra night because he wanted to do as parting reminded me of watching the michael jordan documentary earlier this year. When phil jackson talks about letting dennis rodman go do what he needs to do. But could you imagine if rodman were the leader you know. Could you imagine if rodman showed up out of shape. See people forget robin party but he never showed about shape. He party but the next day he bought out everything. Great billable z. That's the rub though hardened balls out i mean you can sail even if all this stuff that masons brought up his true and there's no reason to think that tim macmahon made it up so i think it's all true one of the quotes in that piece that scott was talking about. Is we knew if we had more than one day off in a row. The james harden was on a plane. Go into party. But we also knew he would come back and drop fifty point triple double on people the problem with this whole this whole issue. The whole heart issue is there's only fifteen guys in the world they can lead your team to a title and you need to have at least one and maybe two of them and hardens one of those guys so he's not. What are you talking about his first team all nba four times your conflict eighty accolades from the media and stats with being. Do lead your team to a championship. Those aren't bra. Elsa elsie you're right. He's great with the counting stats guy won the won the mvp two years ago. He walked up to the podium. And said you're listening to k spn los angeles but can't you make a distinction between a guy who can can put up stats and a guy who can score versus a guy who can lead a team to a championship. Yup there is a

But if you wanna pair they're going to set you back a pretty penny. Can you guys guest how much they price them at. Well the over the year headphones like the bang. Since i have the bose ones the ones the noise cancelling ones run anywhere from three hundred to six hundred dollars. I'll say it's in that range. I'll say it's somewhere north of five hundred dollars ramon. That's interesting 'cause they didn't they just drop the price of the of the phone so it's almost like they have to make their money back up on headphones that go with it. I will say two hundred dollars. So they're gonna cost you a whopping five hundred forty nine

I told this story before and it. It's one that i cling to but i remember when When i when. I got the job. Of course my my i sort of dinner and drinks was was with my best friend. That's who you're going to do to celebrate a new job so so you know. Kobe and i went out for dinner and drinks in newport and he said at the table he said you know. I've i've twenty years working with you partnering with you. I i know your approach. I i know how you think detailed you are and you know and He said i'm looking at the roster. Yeah you said that you're inheriting some tough contracts and not a lot of cafes. He said i'll give you about three years and you'll have the lakers compete for a championship. And i said i was like dude. I love your optimism. But but no shot this is gonna take. This is going to take longer than that. So i think he He saw it before. I did it. It's really a testament to you. Know the the work of people here not me It's the we have an incredible basketball operation. Staff that is deep and thoughtful and hardworking and It's easy as a gm to get or take credit. But you know i. It's really the staff of people here and Lebron i think one time referred to us as beautiful wonderful people or something to that effect and that's really what it is. And i i think our players Especially in the bubble just really experienced that support That are front office and our staff gives to them to put him in a position to be the best they can and that was so necessary. One hundred day medical bubble we i. I knew the team that was the most together and the players that felt most supported by the front office and the coaching staff would have a huge chance to get to the end. And i think that's how we saw play out

"Still when I would imagine the other two guys as well I started the show today George talking about the trade. The Anthony Davis trade in which the Lakers sent a sent three replace and tons of pigs include pick swaps and the sediment nationally. Wile the Lakers gave up a lot. Some guys like Bill Simmons saying Lakers gave way too much watch. It's one of the most lopsided trades ever and my point is that a trade doesn't necessarily have to have a winner and a loser. Cra Trade can hook help both teams. I would have done exactly what rob Pelinka did given them anything to get this done and I think yes the started this season and has shown why and so I think in our in our hot take sports radio world. People WanNa know who on the train. Who when the treat you can both win trade and I think right now the Lakers showed they made absolutely the right? Move to get Davis by Hook or by Crow no question about it and at the time time we all talked about it and I feel like if you can get yourself a top five or six player which is what Anthony Davis is. Then you do whatever it takes to get that guy because because that guy is going to be a difference maker that's the type of guy that helps you win a championship and there were also a different time line. Lebron James is thirty five years old. He he didn't have time to wait around to see if those guys developed into something else The the other mistake people always make trades. They assume that what happens in the cities after the guys are traded on either end of it would have been the same thing that happened. Had the restraint not happen. Not The case Brandon Ingram. Probably maybe this year because has he been excellent. They're probably would have gone out and gotten someone else. They missed on eighty two tried something else ingves. It'd be averaging twenty four twenty five eight and five or whatever knows it's not gonna it happened now with this structure here in with Lebron with the ball in his hands a lot so and impediments San comes back. Those numbers are bound to go a little bit. They built change they. You could go up. They could go down like a lot can happen which I am. If I'm a Pelicans Fan I'm excited about what you can see over the second half of the season particularly since the eight seed is not out of the question for this team like. There's a lots to look forward to but you know Lonzo. Would he be killing it here. I don't think so Josh Heart. It'll be playing exactly the same as Aziz down there is a good deal for both teams agreed and I don't think that look. I don't think that they're going to be this girl for a lot longer. I do think the PELICANS are a team. That's probably going to push for that eight spot. Because I do think Zionist guessing. He'd probably come back not next week but maybe the following I think that is a pretty decent chance. They WANNA get a couple of practices under his belt. You'd be shuffle. He just learned how to walk shot. I know I did that report. I felt terrible because Sh- Charleston shack were killing them the next day they were mocking him walking around the studio wanted to me. This is fascinating like one of the things that they did in New Orleans while Zion was recovering was they literally rebuilt hit the way he walks and runs yes he. He is not uncommon Steph. Curry did something like that. Dwayne Wade to something like that but like it's your body mechanics and changing the way like it's fascinating that you you can do with the idea of preventing further injury preventing further injuries. And of course you know La- making his career lasts longer prolonging his career. I do think the Brandon Ingram called you. See this week about the So he was asked about the guys in his draft class that got extensions. And here's the quote says when I look at other guys I'm like this. Mother bleeper got an extension attention. Oh my God man can lace them up right now and play one one on one to fifteen. This mother. Belieber won't score. That's how I looked at it as a competitor. Okay good for Iran. I see this is why I got so angry you know. The last couple seasons when people will dismiss Brandon. Ingram was doesn't have the eye of the tiger. This guy is as competitive as anybody that I've been around last five or six years. The Lakers loves basketball. More than anybody knows as much which is a had worked as hard or harder than everybody other. He just doesn't do the media stuff but he actually has done a really good job of the media stuff in your mind my in. But he's not a self promote. He's he's not. He's like Anthony Davis regarding really interested in being the biggest star in the block. So it's I WANNA go ball out the New Orleans has been astonished at how good and polished. He's been at the media stuff because it wasn't something he was necessarily great at here And with Lonzo they kind of had this preconceived notion. I'm like Oh Lavar and all right and it's been none of that. It's the biggest mistake people make about. Lonzo is assuming he's like his dad. It's been the complete well. They just thought that the pompton certain circus I would would follow and it hasn't been the case in Lonzo is very much Lonzo. vars business went under. Yeah he's a great time for for for Lavar to be out there. Hey can you hang ready to go or not because I trained WANNA throw at you and we come back. Sit down sitting in with US faster coming up in half an hour mason in Ireland E._S._p._N. L._A...

"A seventy two game regular season? I think it's unlikely most people I've talked to in league. I don't think it's a bad idea. Right he means but you'd have to find a way to make up the revenue Vanu. You're losing from the other ten games. I think that less is more Brian. Our know how you feel I would even go further. I would go down to like sixty personally. Yeah and though. I don't think that would ever happen. Happen Tom Hammer. stroh suggested recently that should go to sixty six the strike shortened. And here's another suggestion that was thrown my way not by a league person. Just a buddy of mine which I love love because it works for baseball a one game situation where they're kind of toying with these seven eight nine ten thing out. I think you do even even more of that. I think the first round of the playoffs should be best of three. Have Senate atop two seats they get all three at home like you just you incentivize that kind of way. Love your idea of a one game plan for maybe the six seven and eight spot. Yeah you know your host Sandy. Ten play tournaments five. I don't want to mess with it. And by the way George of Seven series although in the first round that much into Georgia's point if you're going to go down to let's say seventy two games or seventy games. This is some of the way you make that revenue up. I think they can do it. Yeah I think they can lighten the load the schedule. I know they don't want to. Yeah I think they can do it as long as they provide other ways but makeup but the thing is is it's because part of what makes us work. Is You playing. Seventy two games in eighty two game schedule of calendar right. And so you know you're stretching out games and you're making it so Paul George Co i Leonard doesn't have to. They are less likely to sit out games because they have more days off more days to recoup. And all these the other thing you would think so too Paul Georgia's hurt. It's not like they're they're not ruling these things because they're just really exercising. A lot of caution is different but then he's fine. We're just giving them the night off. These are not the same thing out of the game yesterday. Michael Jordan used to say Lebron kind of said this a couple of weeks ago. Used just to say I never know where there's a kid in the building. I and I love that attitude and I respect it deeply but like these people who run I got a guy left a comment on my on my post today at the At the athletic about this like it used to be guys would throw nine innings the game and they never got it. The same guy's never got hurt or superstar. How many more years productive years Larry Bird played? Yeah had they been less abusive on his body. We don't know like the game name was robbed of two or three years was absolutely. There's no peak Larry. Because Larry Bird played through three years he literally was imposed. ooh He was laid down Kareem. Play twenty years never took games on it but not everybody's body everybody's like that. That's what I'm saying. We sure load management works. It's not a question of a lot of load management is. Hey this guy's got a back problem. Maybe we shouldn't pound him into the earth. Is this kind of hurt. Maybe we should let him sit or not. Not have this mentality. Where if you sit down for a game? You're a weakling. And your I mean something and you know get them out there and play you rob Bob. People have the opportunity to have years of of great performances from these players in exchange for four or five six games year. Where maybe you wish they were around the court when they're not see? I would argue that. We have no idea whether or not load management load management has become coli experiment. Kind of prove that you did. But here's the thing we better hope. It doesn't catch on because if clippers win the title again this year and quietly play. Sixty Games doesn't more teams. Try next year. I think it just depends like I i. I also don't the clippers win of plays eighty can't perform in the playoff right. I don't think that everybody's got a guy who had a degenerative right leg. It's actually a bad example. Because he's he's managing that specific injury. I won't let George Work. You're on the side and Dave Pasch Mark Jackson depend should a cool thing last week. You guys hear what he did. So he's the radio Voice of the Arizona Carden he did a half half and then rams and then came over to lake. He's really good news. The the best George will watch you tonight on. ESPN brandon going into fasttrack in about ten minutes. ESPN LA Mason Ireland. Show where leading up to Laker basketball at a six o'clock. We'll have the pre game show with Michael and then Michael Thompson tonight. We'll do the game Starting at Seven Fifteen Lakers pelicans tonight at Staples Center and Brian. You wrote Yes Was it for the athletic Today about the the extra eight minutes units that Lebron ad had to play the other night against Phoenix. Here's what happened. The Lakers were up by thirty. Six and Frank Vogel was trying to figure out how to manage manage the minutes of Lebron. James Anthony Davis so he said I'll just let him play the third quarter and they can sit the whole fourth what he didn't anticipate. None of us anticipated was that the Lakers would watch thirty. Six point lead get shaved down to just seven twenty two at the end of the the end of the third so they lost ground with those guys were playing. It wasn't right. Ah but in at one point. They had a three pointer Devon Booker. I don't but somebody at a three point that would cut the lead to four for And they missed it and the Lakers were able to stave off the comeback. But you thought so did make a long story. Short Lebron Eighty played the whole third quarter. Frank expected expected them to be able to sit the whole fourth back about eight minutes. Eight minutes to go he went. Oh Ban the leads down to seven. I got to put him back in. I didn't think that was any big thing. He'd just brought him in because he had to you. You think it's significant. I'll tell you why it's because it's not so much that lebrons can be like worn out and like can't perform anymore all that because they had to play these extra minutes now is. Is it better when you can get him to sit. Yes the more of these games that they can play that Lebron and ad play thirty minutes a night. And that's it the better that adds up over time the wear and tear and all that what for me. What it revealed were the weaknesses in the team? That Lebron has to come back and play play means that the second unit when those guys don't play you know the numbers when Lebron doesn't play the offense craters not they're not good right and so what you want in. That situation is for like the supporting cast to be able to carry some time when Lebron is on the floor. This is in theory. Y Kyle Kuzma. Everybody thinks can be the third guy like he's playing against Phoenix's reserves. You would you know help this zone. You don't. You're not criticizing assigning Vogel for doing what he did. It's not an it's not a it's no. It's not a criticism for putting him back in. It's what it reveals about the team. So they are so dependent on Lebron and and what that also means. Is that the minutes that Lebron Plays Wen i. It shows that the minutes Lebron plays when he's Out There are heavy minutes. Not all minutes are created equal. Sometimes you can take two or three minutes where you're playing but you're not really doing anything charge not really defending. You're not a straight it's been pretty good at self. Manage has with this team has usages minutes or a little bit down over the course of the lowest in his career but his usage rate is as high as ever been and and he's thirty five years old now so it's a different kind of thing that's problematic and the fact that they can't run an offense when he's off the floor or is problematic now in the playoffs. Lebron's GONNA play forty two forty three minutes game probably but those five minutes against a really good team is going to be what changes all of it. And that's I think to me is indicative of Y Darren. Collison could be such a big help. I'll defend a lot of problems for this team. I'll defend the bench in this sense. You're right there are many nights where they don't show up in its in. Its a disadvantage for the Lakers. But then the other night the bench score sixty. It's it's not that the better Kinda China hit and miss hit and miss and it's not that they don't perform they. It's that the bench as the the team doesn't perform when Lebron doesn't play if you an assortment of bench players with Lebron James you got some good split. Some good numbers in the analytics can be positive depending on the LINEUPS and all that you take a L. Lebron off the floor and it almost doesn't matter who's on the court take Lebron and eighty off the floor and the results are kind of cap catastrophic tries to do that too right and that makes sense you know but the Lakers supporting cast is a group of dudes where you need everybody to have to kind of stay in their define lanes and do that's why Casey. GP's been good lately. Why then by the way should raise defend? That's picking on Casey P. He he beginning of the year went to a shooting slump. Okay if like I. Five six games since then. He's been invaluable. He's been very good any but meanwhile the flip side of that is avery Bradley. Had I realized he was hurt but he had a horrible full month. Yeah but he came in and you hope that that's sort of trend in. It's it's turning back around really good. November numbers are good but like Avery Bradley has been a guy. It hasn't been a very good player for again injuries. All kinds of reasons and he's a great dude. He works perfect team. Guy But performance performance wise. Hasn't been great over the last couple of seasons. And you hope this month is not going to be the trend line. Rajon Rondo has is the lowest net rating of anybody who with over four hundred minutes on the team. Like it's it's hard on a team with twenty seven wins to have a low net rating. Just around guys were good. His is the lowest on the team. He's not that effective player anymore. And so there are these little holes to wear the dependence on Lebron just the sheer the amount worries me because how much the the the comparison is like the Lakers are like a team like really. You're running a race when you're in elementary school. Well and they give you the cup of water and you have to like not spill any water on the way to the finish line right. That's kind of what the Lakers are. They gotta run as fast as they can but every drop they spill of Lebron is something that he can't use the playoffs and I don't know what that is but it's something so I'm I'm a word so collison solves probably can run the offense when the bras on the floor. He can space the floor when the Brian is on the floor beat another secondary ball handler. So Lebron can take a couple couple possessions off like a big deal. You think of Carlson. Is that big a deal. He is having said all that they're twenty seven and seven and they're gonNa win the whole thing talkline fasttrack coming up next. ESPN LA all right. Time for fast-track praying cabinets. And we do this every day. At this time I question since for Brian. He's got him for me. They don't necessarily have to do a sports but we tend often. Don't yeah we tend to mix and match it. We always start with a ceremonial whole coin. Flip flipped it hers. Laura afflicted very early tonight We'll say you're gonNA flip it again. We'll say heads Brian Brandon Ingram. You say is going to do one or two things tonight either. Go off and have a thirty point game or shoot six for twenty six and really struggle heads. He plays great tales he struggles call it Nama. Bi Fan heads. He plays great. Laura Oh right. That's that's the payless microphone yell. He plays great. He plays great cases. Brian you can go first for fast. Track back all right. I got several places I can start. Let's start here. The Yankees introduced new starting Pitcher Garrett Cole last month and he has a new look no beard short haircut. This is in line with the Yankees nineteen seventy-three rule that players are not allowed to have beards or hair below the collar. Andy Nesbitt from USA Today. Thinks that Cole Mr an opportunity community here. Here's what Nesbitt wrote Cole. Who grew up in Yankee fan had a chance to take a stand for all the players on the team or dying to rock a beard during the this season? Imagine if he showed up looking like he did last season with the Astros and was like this. Is My team now beards for everyone. What what would the Yankees due to their three hundred twenty four million dollar man they would do nothing and quote Brian Ryan Should Garrett Cole have rocked the boat and shown up with his beard and long hair? I mean yes. This is one of those things like is is it better for Garrett Cole in the team was better for me as a person who likes to talk about stuff like anarchy and New York is better for me is it better. Are you setting the right tone for the team. When you show up and your flow flouting the rules or whatever the reward is in no? You're not you're creating problems where they don't need to exist but I'm not interested in sports for them. John Interest in sports from me so I think you should have shown up with a beard as long as possible. The hair should have been down to his knees incorrect. The hardest thing about any job is doing what your boss wants. Especially when it doesn't appear to be.

"Or bets why would you give up Gavin. Luck's if Mason were here. He would say because you don't have to but they've missed on everything they've they've missed on every big free agent they didn't get Garrett Cole. They didn't get Stephen Strasburg everyone. They went after they missed so now if they're going to change the fortunes of this team team they've got to do it by trade and none of those guys are moving now unless you put Gavin Lexin the deal so greg why wouldn't you so okay. There's a little bit. We're the three the three free agents you had. Stephen Strasburg was never leaving Washington. So that's off the table Garrett Cole was Yankee Fan growing up and he wanted to be a Yankee he did. What Apple Anthony Anthony didn't want to be in? La Wasn't the Hollywood. Hollywood life's under Friedman didn't even Hollywood. Yeah it was to Hollywood for him. He didn't want to do that. which is also? There's you know someone who's never lived in southern Kerala. Hollywood is a ten mile circle and everything else is normal. It was all about wanting to be in Orange County. Let's but when it comes to Mookie Betts though mookie Betts you don't have to move Gavin Lux Gavin Lux's not even a part of that deal that's why they're kind of look towards bets right now. Well here's here's one thing you have to give up the pitching which I think is well hold on. Hold on the mookie. Betts steel is different. McKee bet the rumor is they could get mookie betts if they were willing to take on the David price rank tract which I would I would do so and then you could. Would you know. Get them into deal for Cory seager but the funny thing about this is that aeronautical bets and Linda for or what you want looks to become Anthony Davis and this is why. I'm trying to the Lakers. Anthony Davis was what you want Brandon. Ingram tuber come. I'm not bitter. That Brandon Ingram turning into an all star. I thought he could and it was hoping he would but it doesn't matter if he does. I hope he's on all star for ten years. He could make it this year Brian. I hope he's putting I mean. If this team didn't have a losing record he would make it this year with the numbers he's putting. It's a little bit different advice ball. But here's the thing here's where it's not different. Anthony Davis is already there. Are Anthony. Davis is what you want Brandon Ingram tribute come. And here's where I'm drawing the parallel Gavin lex. Mike turn out to be the next cody bellinger. He might be Great Francisco Lindores already. There Nolan earn their mookie. Betts is already there I would if the rockies called you today Greg and said we'll give you an Air Nado but it has to be a deal centered around Gavin looks. Are you really saying no. It's GONNA be tough. Have to say no to that one and they obviously are doing. It's not because that where Aaron auto is and where Lux's in their career. It's because in baseball. You have seven years of control with Herat and Lux opposed to in in basketball where it's only the dodgers like the Lakers. Brian you made this point earlier are in a championship window. Clayton Kershaw six games. Last right right exactly why you do it. Clayton Kershaw is has dropped from an elite best pitcher in baseball to probably number two or three yarder. Now do anything based on Kershaw's wind and no no no but here's the thing now you've you've you've lost hundred you you've lost re chill. You're basically coming back to the table with Walker. Bueller is your one and Kershaw's you're too. Yeah Okay who's always going to be too right so or maybe even the three depending on you right. What second or third? And the CY young voting second all right so they're gonNA have to do something with the pitching but look at that outfield. If you were able all to get bets or look at your lineup. If you're able to put a switch hitting shortstop like Lynn door that's in the all star game every year. I don't under the window. Brian is tied not to Kershaw but to Justin Turner. WHO's at the end? He's not going to I. I like you guys like the door peace. You know bats these guys make a lot of sense appears Lindores twenty-five in Bets Twenty six twenty seven twenty seven now played last year it was twenty six year old season so like but all those are what looks to be there now and they're also young enough that if you greg how quickly they gotta sign these guys relatively really quickly to long-term Yes yes right. You're going to get you're going to get the good years out of McKee bats and Francisco door that you wouldn't get if they were thirty ready to like that makes a big difference but just the general. The general reluctance of people like if Mesa where he would be screaming. You don't have to give up locks you don't have to good. lucks really well. Then why has joined those players move you try not to but the but what you well because maybe other people aren't giving up their stuff either and if if the market it says what you have to give up. I reason the Lakers. The reason the Lakers guiding Anthony Davis is 'cause they went all in and I don't regret that they went all in the dodgers to go all in is putting Gavin. Lexin the account if I get any of those three any of those three if I could get today Lindores Aeronautical Tower bets. I would do it in. Calculus is different in baseball. Because let's say you get. I mean we were talking about this. With Ren donors owners. I think he had a a war of What's your war was probably around like five right? I mean you know whatever it is and like you know so over over the course of one hundred sixty two games rendering might be worth four or five six games like which is an astronomical amount for one guy in baseball but it's it's four or five or six games and sixty two over one hundred sixty two. So what does that mean in the playoffs. Like three tenths of a game. Like maybe so you in baseball. You have to think of this stuff differently and you know it becomes. I will give you Gavin. Looks but if I put Lacson the what am I pulling back whereas in basketball if I get Lebron James I I'm ten games better. I'm fifteen games better than I was. Instantly Anthony Davis get them. I'm ten games better but in an eighty eighty two game season. An even better in the playoffs when your stars matter more baseball the value of your stars is actually diluted wral relative to something like basketball so you do have to be. You can't really so in in in in you don't hold up. Anthony Davis over to pick swaps. You you might draw the line where I'm what I'm saying and I'm curious if either one of you agree with it is. I'm not holding up a deal for any of those three players. If the only thing I have to do is put Lexin the deal and if you read these these reports it seems to suggest that if the dodgers would put luck in the deal then all of a sudden all three of those are possible. I live in the world of believing believing whatever Andrew Friedman wants me to believe and because what. He's already done it. He shown it he held onto Walker bueller instead of trying to trade them for Cole Hamels he held onto cody bellinger instead of trying to get. Jt Real Muto. He's held onto cory seager. He helped he. Now he's trying God he says I don't want to move locks because he's going to be a superstar star than I don't WanNa Move Lux. Here's the thing you're so Hollywood. Note that he right Greg. He refused to trade cory. Seager Cory seager one rookie of the year and now two years later cory seager is a trade chip. I just saying I'm not I don't think he's I mean they might leave as long as they get one of those three guys. That's the heart of the deal right. Now that's the heart of the deal and they want it. I mean that's that's still money. That has the move hand so I don't know if that right well beat well because Glendora is is GONNA cost Cleveland even more than seeger would right which is why bring back seger there would only be locked Lacson and other prospects. Well they've been jock Peter's but but they'd get seger for at least one year right under their cost control for one year. Yeah Oh that's I don't know if you're actually getting seeger in any of this I just think that the teams that go for it are the ones I mean if you look if you study trades in in not just basketball but in baseball or football the teams that go fort are often rewarded and they are ars. They're often not. I mean it just depends it depends on how like if it's if it's for. mookie Betts if it's just lux okay if it's locks and may Johnson Danzig. When you're cutting too much of your team? You Know I. Actually they need those. I actually think the bets deal. It's because of the addition of price. It makes reference. Might be doable or be understand. My point you can't give up one for seven doesn't work in football like the Herschel Walker deal one for seven doesn't work in I in baseball. No not if you're giving up people off your Major League roster it unless you have people replace them Mooney. Bats is not worth the you the sum total of what lucks gone. Someone may you know named to other people are going to give you completely disagree with you. We'll tell you why next uh-huh Brian Cabinet screen for Mason Mason Ireland. ESPN LA all right. Mason Ireland show Brian. Kennedy's information leading you up to Lakers. Pelicans Anthony Anthony Davis going up against his old team. First Time back in staple center to play against the Lakers for Brandon Ingram Lonzo ball and Josh Hearten New Orleans actually plane. I mean well Bryan. They've won four games in a row. Five or six. Yeah and Lonzo is coming off of his first triple double as a Pelican and he has not been good until recently. He's been better of the last three or four hundred. I know this because I drafted my fantasy team. He has been. He's the same problems here. Trouble staying on the court. This is biggest issue and And we'll circle back to the Lakers here in a second. But I wanted to get into something that you said before the break that it. You wouldn't do a seven for one deal to get a guy when you're taking guy where you're taking a lot of players off of your major league roster like Dustin Maze as considered a prospect sort of. But he's on the roster he's going to be an important part of the rotation extra Goslin same kind of thing. So I think if you start to take three or four good young players players off your roster that they depending on to be contributors this year you reach a point where you're giving up too much your e. The return isn't enough to make up for it. Totally totally disagree. And here's why there.

"Which is a must win right? According to you it has to be according to you to know the season is over. They're still gonNA play you. You GotTa should've come Ravens. Are you gonNA stop going to the Games if they don't win. Oh no I WANNA go. See Lamar J.. I don't ever stop. I kept going Jeff Fisher definition then Mace. Its not much snowing but I don't believe that they will be a playoff team if they don't mind on Sunday don't either. Yeah yeah but that must wayne means like the season's over months you've been to a couple of months win win games that adds into in good Karma. Mace couldn't quite pull it off. Yeah good thing I was at the game where the lion cheating sheeting Astro's beat you. Darvish dodgers. Yeah but okay. I don't blame Yu Darvish anymore. I blame the Astros for a minute. How did the through game semi she in Dodger Stadium Remote cameras electronic devices. Wait a minute wait a minute so thinking about what you're suggesting and I believe they cheated. I just don't think I think cheating on the roads much harder order. You say remote cameras yes. So where are they putting a camera dodger stadium. Were nope were. Somebody's GonNa see it. Everybody everybody in that building or dodger fans. They can't do. All your name is a live feed right. You need a live feed. Are you telling me. They couldn't get a live feed if they chose to get it. I yes I am because I think even if they have a live feed down to the dugout all you need. Is this breaking breaking ball but the ball boys down there. They don't travel with their own ballboys. The ballboys down there dodger ballboys. You know they're wearing astro uniforms. But they're dodger ballboys. They would know so it. You couldn't you can't get. I think darvish may have been tipping. His pitches but I don't think they were able to get away with this scam at the game. You went to game seven of the Astros. Two thousand seventeen world series was in dodger stadium right. Yes yeah I don't know how they get away with it there. I think anything goes in. Is it still minute. Maid aide park minute maid park. Yeah that one with the stupid little turning. Yeah I think anything goes talk about a weird Gimmick Gimmick dingoes there but to do it on the road. The park is about as big as my backyard. Now one thing one thing that could have happened. Okay now most of the time you have a delayed aide feed like the like when you come up to see Michael and I do the Games. Yes we're watching the Lakers game on a delayed feet right so in other words you call something then you immediately look look down at the Monitor. It hasn't happened yet but let's say for the sake of argument that you could get a live feed into the bullpen. Okay so the pitchers down there could follow the game. I don't know if this exists or not if that is the dodgers are stupid because the dodgers should delay it because this is a release the dodgers would control the feet. But let's say there is a live feed and that guy what did you tell me the bullpen. CATCHER would put his arms up are on the wall of his fastball. and down down side when it was a breaking ball but that's okay so the thing about it. The bullpen in dodger stadium is way out in right field correct. So if I'm in the batter's box I'm your the pitcher. I'm looking at you. I would we this thing. The Internet's loose could figure out. I would have have to turn my head. No this is what Christian Yelich pointed out. Yeah this apparently Christian Yelich was doing. Justice is is would flicker over over there and that's and so you darvish stepped stepped off of the mound because he saw is. But this place is I that. The Milwaukee brewers were involved in this sort of scheme blue. He said you said he doesn't think that they're doing this. But he did see yellow. Have Eyes Flicker so. He stepped off the mound. Because he's hers but I still think. Do you disagreed. Yellowish Yelich has left handed. He absolutely would have to turn his head. So no you're looking out into the field. No greater way. Watch Mason's pitcher okay I'm yell at Chum. Left handed right. I'm looking at you the bullpens over there now no no. It's not that far. You can see over your right show. Nobody it's over. Cody bellinger's head. It's it's over there in that area but you could right field no no you can't I can't I could not see the bullpen catcher. Doing this. Just change me is. I'd have to turn my head or if I did you straight. Can you flick your eyes over to see that no. No you can't send over your shoulder just how good. You can't see the foul pole absolutely. You don't have to look over your shoulder rank sitting at home plate absolutely saying okay wait a minute so your okay. You're Bellinger left-handed Stanton okay. The bullpen catcher is roughly. Where Bergman is right now can you? Not What are you talking about Ferguson. Player terrorist career. Yes it's haunting to left center for your right-center look down the right field line. You told me you can't the right field line right. They're you're not pointing you're standing up. Here's here's your hitting John Right. Field Line is right there where it's extension my right foot. No it's right here you're looking at. You're looking at the right field line. You can see the whole you guys are drunk. Not See the whole field. When you're standing at home plate right field I it is on your left hand? You're basically looking down the right field line. You're looking at the pitcher your no but all you need is one glance and you're there I disagree. I think that the way I just. I just want to read this because We'll we'll get fast-track here in a minute Bob Nightingale Rights. There's a A meeting general managers meeting And BOB says there may be thirty three Jn there may be thirty different agendas at these meetings but this time virtually all are united in one front. They want to see the Astros. Go down and go down hard. They want the Astros to pay a fortune. Penalties to be fined a record amount of money forfeit draft picks forfeit international signing bonuses and to executives. Even say they wish they would forfeit or vacate. The 2017 world sat saddle USA Today spoke to fourteen executives and two of them said Strip them of the World Series Slough. So then Kate this is i. I always think or by the way I always think vacating stupid and the thing that convinced me that is when they made. USC vacate all those victories. I was at half those games. I saw him catch the home. Run champion a major league baseball. Ah I the Karen See. So you essentially barry bonds vacated the home ranch who won the heisman trophy that year after Matt liner Reggie Bush He. He didn't cheat now the MTA says he did they vacated physically. He didn't cheat right there. There's somebody vacating something that's already happened. We all saw is stupid. That's what they buy. If I'M GONNA go to Lisa Guerrero I did with. I do agree that I I do find what Bob Nightingale said really interesting. If you're going to throw the book at the Astros I wanna see what they come up with. Yeah yeah sailing. Vacating almost let off the hook. I'd rather see them. Punish them into the future. They take away draft picks. They're saying suspend they're saying don't waste your time worrying about what's already happened. You get get them for. What's coming up? Yeah I mean they're saying basically all of the above forfeiting draft picks international signing bonuses. That's what I WANNA see record amounts of fines on individuals angels and on the team. Good I want to see him. Go down hard to all right FASTTRACK is coming up next for you Mason Ireland. ESPN LA Now I'm really getting worked up over this down the rabbit hole time for fasttrack on one side side of the coin the Astros won and they cheated the other side of the coin. They won because they cheated calling. The air is courtesy tales. This this better be tails you damn right tack all right Let's start with this one. The two best teams in the NFL by record occurred or the Patriots and the niners the Ravens are the only team who is defeated New England. Yes Seattle is the only team that has beaten San Francisco. Let's say after you a bet you can have those four teams to win the Super Bowl. Patriots Diner Seahawks Raven. Yes or you're you can take the field. You get every other team. Kansas City Green Bay Minnesota Dallas. All of them you going with the four teams are you going with the twenty eight teams. I will go with the four teams. You think the Super Bowl Champs Champs coming out of that group Patriots Niner Seahawks Ravens. Yes the the ones that I think. Green Bay has a shot shot. Green Bay's interest. I think Dallas is interesting Kansas City if they get healthy. I'm not so sure Houston Houston is completely out of it. What does Shawn Watson? I think I would take the twenty I did. I'd take the Field Greg how about you. Would you take the four teams of the field because the Patriots research that four. I think I'm taking the field though. I don't think it's GonNa come any other three so it's really one verse twenty eight in that sense events and I don't know if they're gonNA if the Patriots have this year Well the the thing about the Patriots you. It's it's very hard to win. Two Years in rain. Sure you know even though they go every year yes very hard to win and and by the way if they make it. Isn't that three years in a row. They made it. Didn't they lose to philly before they beat the Rams so three years in a row to go to the Super Bowl I mean I'd have look it up. That's really hard to do. They seem they look pretty. Good too my. Yeah but the team that if I didn't take the field that the the two teams I think I'd worry the most about Minnesota looks really good game better than the ramps but they just cowboys of the same record as the rams stayed in Minnesota has a good defense in and they've weapons on offense and if Kansas City gets healthy they would scare me because they mahomes. Yeah but we'll see we'll see if it comes out a false chat. I think the world is evolving on issues of race but for Italian soccer star. Mario Batali life hasn't changed at all. Bell Atelli was born in Palermo to Ghanaian and parents..

kurt warner will join us hall of famer i actually this game tonight is going to be really worth watching i have no feel for who's going to win it you took the eagles right i took if the eagles it's in green bay yet green bay's defense has been excellent it's eagles plus fours the line i saw they just flashed by the screen green eagles receivers have dropped nineteen percent of carson wentz his passes including it critical juncture in snag laura would have won on a game for them right and that allowed atlanta to to beat them they've got a couple of ugly losses they lost to atlanta and they lost to detroit right but but green baseman really good defensively and the game is at lambeau i saw detroit might be good they're defeated yeah they might be good too you're early to tell but they're off to a great start you know we do these real trade is a real game this week we do these what we call liners that run during the game i can't i believe you did this this is this is not like you a lot of and that is why the way that's why you came up with i just figured it out but that's why you came by feeling a little sluggish you're all off because they AM off the rams are for no after a home win against the box here how i saw the game this afternoon mason and ireland ESPN ten and the ESPN app so they may be do this and i i read it you gotta admit i read it convincingly yeah which i can't believe you did i would refuse to done it what happened to the rams this yesterday we talk about their loss to the box this afternoon now why don't make me do that because they got to be prepared for either eventuality but i only want one eventuality right but that they feel like i put a lot of bad karma out i agree i would i would have said no i refuse to do the second one i will only do the first i won and if they lose you're gonna have somebody you have keyshawn make fun of their reminds me of the year was it the astros year where we recorded this is my biggest professional regret how dare you bring this up we were asked by what company making nike to do an ad in advance of game seven of the world series a- as if the dodgers had won the world series right and vince kelly was going to be in the ad it was gonna be dealt an absolute professional highlight for you and i and then you darvish happened happened yeah yu darvish happened but what was going to happen was we were going to be on the radio talking about the dodgers winning game seven of the world series in a car were vin scully knows was you know it was him it was just see somebody's hand on the wheel and he'd be driving up sunset and down by gladstone's and then at the end the reveal is that it's spin scholar yeah yeah but but see we jinxed it well maybe we got paid we fan or not we still got very yeah yeah which which would have made a different but this game tonight could go either way that's why my my my bet is stupid it does not involve the winner or the loser it's all over under it is i am predicting rogers more than two hundred and fifty foot mythical money can you missing your parlay bet go ahead i'll take it the parlay king can't take it i can't bet against myself no you cannot bet against no

was is just released got it all right coups mma is progressing with his rehab from an injury a stress reaction in his left foot that occurred while he he was at USA basketball he is not been cleared for full practice or game participation he is scheduled for an MRI when the team returns things from china and a status update will begin at that time which means mace yup no coups mma for the first three the lakers preseason gang okay because their first game is in the new chase center in san francisco to open up against slur they put the warriors four times in the preseason but he's gonna that's the first game and then they go to a couple of games in china against the nets and then they come back you know for for two at staples center and then and then another one up north so no coups

about preseason i don't care about anymore i'm tempted not to play anybody in any sport in any preseason game in the NBA that's not the way they do it you'll see a little bit of everybody but i don't

we're going to talk to him tomorrow look i love the idea of of spreading the word about the NBA in china and i know guys are like rockstars over there and i understand the the purpose of these trips to china china but if i had a choice if it's my favorite team i don't want them to go to china i don't want my team to travel a lot like for example the rams have somehow survived the trips to london they've got one more this year but man it puts a lot of mileage in it there is i i know they're flying they're flying charters that stuff but that travel is hard yep you've made that trip yep but it there none you do about it now they're going over over there and they're gonna play and but i'm not i'm not concerned coups isn't gonna plan that trip when we went kobe didn't play kobe was injured

"By you to number two imagine by John Lennon and number one smells like teen spirit by how devante Yup Nirvana so the question I tipped you guys off earlier on this. What are your three greatest songs of all time? Okay okay so I actually will go with them on one of them to Queen. I'm in Bohemian Rhapsody if you saw that movie and read about about and saw it listen etc about how Freddie Mercury came up with a song he believed in that artistically and just the way that people listen to it and how it is. I think it's got to be on the list K. That's that's one now. I'm so torn Okay I. I want to put something from aretha on their Yup. I feel like if taking three songs with me on my on my iphone and those the only three I could ever listen to. I have to have some kind of Aretha so I'm GONNA say all will probably go with natural woman. Okay okay instead of respect. Even that's hard. That's a hard choice there but okay and then ooh tough yeah I'm GonNa go with fleetwood and I'm GonNa go with landslide lamps a great record could song good song. I I mean I do like everywhere. Don't stop thinking about landside is just a beautiful song. Okay Greg. I'm also going to agree with one of them on the list but mine is imagined by a John Lennon that is such an unbelievable song I'M GONNA go with two Beatles Song. Luckily that's John Lennon Song so I will go with the Beatles Song. here comes the Sun. It's my favorite song of all time I love that Song so that's one of them and then the other one is what a wonderful world and it's not the Louis Armstrong Armstrong version. I love that version th the one I love is the solution is amazing. That is a great song call. I saw my three are number. Three's tough. There's a couple there. I'M GONNA go with I'M GONNA go with when doves cry by Prince. That's good really is an unbelievable record number two who I agree with them one by. U2 that's great to and my number one song of all time is Howard Luhya by Leonard Cohen. That's Agai- yeah I just think I own so many different people doing that soft Buckley. Eh It goes on and on there's a JT version. There's a K. D. Lang version narrow wrote. That's the most recorded song of all time there's so many different versions of but a Hallelujah number one for me so nobody's on Nirvana nobody's under but I love that record that would be on my shortlist list. Nirvana was always overrated. I hated it always actually have gone the other way on Nevada like I. I didn't like them at the time and now I like them. I love runge grunge girl. I love Pearl Jam or Jonah fast track. Oh God how do I follow that. One might turn again. Okay follow it with another question I know but that was such a good question. okay one of the new. NBA rules that was passed today by the Board of Governors is that lineups are to be posted thirty minutes before the game instead of ten. Why was this change made and who benefits the most from it okay so I wasn't listening so repeat the question this one out such a short question? I I normally ready for your long rambling. I'm being honest here. I better answer. I didn't hear what are the one of the new. NBA rules that was passed today's board of governors meeting. We're all focused on the tampering and I'm going to make this long rambling. is that the League has decided sided that lineups are going to be posted thirty minutes before a game instead of ten. Why did they make this change who benefits the most from it thirty minutes instead of ten? You'RE GONNA figure this one out. I think that's probably gamblers. This is a very gambler friendly rule change. We're going to give you more time to figure out WHO's playing. WHO's not playing who starting WHO's not starting? WHO's an active This is a gambler friendly rule and I think it's smart. am I right. You're totally right. I mean what what did they do this for the media right. I think this is I think everybody needs to be more transparent. This is this is was excellent transparency on the part of the NBA. It's already legal in multiple states and eventually will be federally legal so why not get in compliance with what is right and what is fair right away this came up earlier this year the NC Double A. had a decision to make about whether or not they were going to put out an injury report for college football and they decided not to but you know what they should because if somebody's he's got inside information about somebody who is or is not gonNA play they can make a bet and know that they've got that secret that secret sauce as we talk oftentimes about a game time decision right will generally speaking players go out on the court they warm up and then about ten fifteen minutes before the calls made are they playing or not and it depends on how much you believe how close they go to Gametime like how how far out do they go before they make that quote unquote gametime decision Yup generally speaking. I think people have a pretty good idea. It's there's there's very few true gametime decision yes so but think back to the finals this year with Kevin Durant every single game we weren't sure or if he was going to play they were just wait until the La- until the last minute finely Steve Kerr would say Kevin out today Yup Kevin's not active today and Jeno's those beginning. There's a gamesmanship aspect to this the tip the opponent off of whether somebody's active or not active but how big a difference does this make in terms of gambling and the betting line when Kevin Durant is active versus inactive Klay Thompson active versus nine swing Lebron James and the finals years ago yeah we find out he had broken hand y'all ever on an injury report never change his spot the starting lineup well that wouldn't necessarily and this went necessary taste but yeah there's there's the truth through a broken can hand and was playing anyway. He wouldn't show up on an injury report. He would be in the line and with that but if somebody was like let's say they have a sprained ankle hamstring. I'm string or whatever it is it. Can we play with this or not. It used to be ten minutes. They coaches could take it all the way up until they had to put the final lineup in Yup who was active not active active now it's thirty minutes set atten- yeah wow interesting the NBA's ahead of the curve gambling they really are they are embracing it. which is the smart by the way Major League baseball also trying to embrace it Rob Manfred it's only the NFL that is deeply opposed to gambling and college football all deeply opposed to gambling but it's coming whether they like it or not so you might as well get ahead of the curve on it? I I got a game leftover. Who will come back to next? George Sodano has got a couple of pets. Did you hear from George coming on next. George is GonNa come up next Mason Ireland. ESPN ESPN LA Mason Ireland so a couple of things we'll get sodano in here in just a minute sports by Brooks Brooks Mel cure has been told by a source close to the USC Administration Asian and board of trustees that if the TROJANS are embarrassed by Utah at home tonight in a major blow out clay Helton will be relieved of his duties as as has the school football coach if like that simultaneously have a tweet from a member of the pre game aim. I think is going on right now. US Times a game start six o'clock six o'clock USC versus Utah at the Coliseum the pre game on F s one is Matt Liner Urban Meyer and Reggie Bush there is a tweet from Stewart Mandel. This is a comment from Urban Meyer during the pre game he was asked about USC general general he said there are very few places where you can expect to win every game. This is one of them. Oh Geez is he looks now. You're all excited again. I don't know what to do here. I don't know if I'm supposed to root for them or supposed to refer Utah Because of Utah Wins than there goes clay Helton but I can't root for C. It's very disturbance. Get fired. No I want him there forever. They held in such a great guy one of their forever and ever and ever either. You're the bruin over right exactly stay forever. Let's bring George Sodano in George. What are you doing man? I'm just hanging out my biohazard suits this week. So why are you in in a biohazard suit so my son the youngest got something called hand foot mouth so basically it is a viral tirol infection she can't take antibiotics or anything like that and the kids get like fever and they get like these little bumps and rash I get rashes I guess on their the hands on and they could get it in their throat to and yeah so of course my wife and I both got it my daughter though did not really get it which is interesting so but my wife and I have dealt with it so we have all basically been in a biohazard suit and my mother-in-law's been here making sure that my daughter doesn't get contaminated so what is the prognosis prognosis five to seven days of just staying out of the public is because I think contaminate you and so the last thing I want to do may since we both share that same seat at Espn La was contaminate you via the thank you. I saw you the other day when and you hosted the trump and you were like I'm just not feeling what I'm like. Get away from me. I wanted to get near anyone because I knew that I wasn't feeling yeah well. It was probably something like this but I didn't know that the fever thing was was something that the adults would get so I thought maybe I just had a regular cold or whatever whatever but yeah turns out I had the thing I got the Itis so will there be a sodano actually tonight. There will be a sodano show. Did you know who's hosting it. I believe the Kevin uh-huh they've got one of them. One Cam Brian Okay the Baldwin with Gregg Bergman. Oh August Brown father.

Yes wish once it's just once it was at a golf turner you to be a sort of host now letting me talk a lot you talk. You talk a lot on the show. Yes you ask me my opinion. It's very true yeah so so I consider to be kind of a third wheel sure I'll take that I'll absolutely took that third. Wheel was great. A third word wheel is great contract negotiations if he gonNA say like I want third wheel status or are you going to use his leverage to for a bigger spot gets the the width. It's Mason Ireland with Greg Okay. If I can get a with yeah I'm all in what's better with or an and with an and an anxious it's way better but also was there with the the credits roll like in the in the in a movie show movie like the with they save that for the very last person it's like the big name person who didn't quite get it up there with the big names and so they stick them at the end. Agra big name that's right. It's like the when the famous guy comes on but as you see that as as introducing and introducing this person as this and then later on they're the big star well. It'll gnaws ex that song that that WHO's who's that with billy Ray Cyrus Billy Ray Cyrus is a much bigger name than little nausea. This was like little laws breakthrough breakthrough theme song of the Summer Right song summer so if it was billy ray Cyrus and that's how go little nauseous with Billy Hillary sight seeing me got got it. It's all about the inflection apparently right now. You're just an end. Thanks Justice Spire hire you run out and get a gardener like Ramona here. This is a text that you got. Oh Nevin sent me a tech saying we're going to have the Gardner. Take take this tree out next week because both your parents and my aunt say that it has the red berries are poisonous. I said that sounds like a good call. My texts for my mom came in the middle of the show. Just this simple question. Do you vape why why she's asking you why there's been deaths. That's the thing that's trending on her facebook feed. Yes that's exactly is just one of those things that that older generation people don't go vaping DOCO Belco. Oh vaping if she asks you about the area fifty one raid I have I have in the past. I'm not doing enough so tonight kind of surreal at at the coliseum with Urban Meyer Yeah and Reggie Bush will do online every game show for the USC Utah Game and end our reread the tweet from sports by Brooks and Brooks is very he says sports by Brooks has been told by a source close to the US administration and board of trustees that if the TROJANS are embarrassed by Utah at home tonight in a major blow out clay Helton will be relieved of his duties as the as the school's head football coach I think that is inane. I think that is absolutely a stupid idea that tenth best team in the country right right and and there is no point. It's not as though there is this coach in waiting waiting. There's not I mean I guess you can handle the team to clancy. Pendergast Graham heralds been there for about ten minutes. I don't think you can hand the team to Graham Harrow to me. These decisions should be made after the season by a new athletic director and we shouldn't have any interim coach situations pushes coach going to do is be one thing if there were these massive expectations for these. USC team to go out and win the PAC twelve and make a rose. We're like you have to shake things up because there's expectations and you could go find someone. That's not this team. Everybody kind of knows what this is. It's an eight and three year seven and five live or whatever it might be in firing clay. Helton doesn't change that especially now I mean I. I like slow this as much as anyone. He's still a freshman quarterback with a really with two games under really brutal schedule. There's still an order of operations that need to happen. I though you can't you have to get an aunt an ad see I. If you don't have an a d you can't pick up a head coach because then if you bring in a head coach Dan and the like no. I don't like this guy you then. He stuck with them so you have to allow your new. Ad Keep trying to say Anthony Davis you trying to get your de- yeah I think I hear I d I immediately think Andy Dave's right but you have to let him make the higher or him or her doesn't matter what it is but they need to be able to make the higher to pull the plug in the middle of the season. It's just point awesome. Thanks for a reason. We're three games in yeah at least if you keep the staff in place all the recruiting efforts for next year stay in place but if you change the staff in the middle of the year who's in charge and everyone knows what's coming and then the then you run into the other problem though the US's always had this thing where they fire someone and then the next guy comes in and does a great job and the team rallies around them and there's suddenly this the feeling you have to run with that guy now. That's how Klay Hilton got here to begin with this feeling that you have to run with them after Sark. Yeah but there's this lame duck status that you have for Clay Helton right now. They lose this game. You know he's going to be fired at the end of the year. It's like with with Luke Walton. You knew that he was going to be fired. At the end of the year you can be fired fired at the trade deadline but he got fired at the end of the year you know that Clay Helton is going to be fired so if you want a lame duck head coach at Uc for football yes yes you do. Do you want him to finish out the season. They're fine. It's not as clancy. Pendergast is going to turn this into a spectacular season. He's got the same players players. I think. These guys respect clay. I think they play for clay. I think that their best chance for whatever success whatever ever ceiling they have is going to be staying with clay and it may be as Bryant said it may be written in the stars at this seven and five season. Maybe that's as good what is a guess you're saying that they're playing for but then. Reggie Bush's writing out there that people aren't wearing t shirt that's not we're not a real function. I just think that's weird this but but that's not a function of whether or not you play for your head coach. That's a function of whether or not your head coaches instilling enough uniformity and discipline and has attention to detail and those types of things that doesn't mean they don't like the guy well probably like him too much. Is that slowest getting up to That's going to play from scrimmage second play from scrimmage. That's the Utah Defense by the way this. Utah Defense is killer good and she she didn't slow this is down. He tried to get back up. Immediately went back to the ground and the training staff is out there. It is the Third Guy Guy Research. It'll be mammoth phase him for the name. Who's been in the program and has some experience number seven feel real bad in the face right in the face. Oh Wow he he's looking at his defender. All right tell Delic clean ninety that is to help the crown crown but most of that goes through ooh and that that pushed his helmet right up not feeling good right now yeah very very Lisa's concussion. I'm not sure that that was capable of getting his helmet low enough. He was so big yeah he is. He's like twice. I mean when you see a guy get up and start to stumble went fall down on their face again. You can't come back into that game. I I have to believe yeah. I have to believe seven the offensive line. Just GonNa feel bad about that. Yeah that's a helmet right up apology yeah all right all we'll have more showing it four large man doing play by play next more purgatory. Mason Ireland off tonight Momo's here Greg Bergman's bear Bryant Kevin Skis here. ESPN LA I take one last spoke Peden Slava's had left the game for USC and Matt Fink took over the job from him Matt Fink. Thank took the trojans drive and completed a touchdown pass to Tyler vaunts twenty nine yards and USC lead Utah seven nothing than I have tried to explain to you guys since it happened that heathen slow. This is just a tremendous drag on this program. The Fink era has arrived and thank God yeah thank God but he didn't enter the tree slow. Transfer Portal is sucking up trojans all over the place just swooping down on the practice description of what the transport had you seen doctor strange thing we're doctor strange spins the thing and then just a window to somewhere hand actually example doctor after strange sears enters yup and you just don't know where he's going to come out in time to go do that the choice no not non my version not in your meals version you pop out anywhere right in the real version. You do get to choose. I would suit but there's no guarantee that if you like if know that anyone's GonNa take you correct. We're talking about quantum leap here. That's just like go into the quantum leap and you the Dow is Al telling you really should be. It's just player freedom. That's all it is. It's player free to my ways good thing you're year's end up somewhere. Jack Sears in eighteen sixty three right now. We've literally the woman no nobody wears late is on the air the Bortles Iron Infinity War. Here's here's how weird it is if nobody has if he's he's not made a deal to go somewhere else member clay said all sorts of Nice things about him as walking out the door and a number of players have come back back from the portal to go back to USC but not as Jackson very possible that when sears returns he's fourteen years older so Matt Fink was apparently we just had time to read a few stories in the La Times about Matt faith during the break was all but going to Illinois as a transfer for and then just came back from mortal through the portal and is now leading the Trojans on scoring drives as their quarterback now. USC has nothing behind him right. There's no Jack Sears available Zil. I'm on Saint Rods. GonNa Start taking over games on seeing around yeah. I'm on Rossi Brown. Yeah sure that guy to Oman I'm on I'm UCLA for other back. I really would appreciate all the good work. Thanks here information all the time. This is my next two and a half hours. We'll talk to you. I see the entire time. I've ridden talk the entire time let's talk about the brand new tampering rules in the NBA. They're going to get much more serious about it. The fines can now be up to ten million in dollars. there will be five teams audited all of their communications with other teams. with agents can be audited every single season and there's one more ruled that change the ten million dollar fund the Auditing. I look at my notes that you have to keep records. A A years worth of work is also another rule that I don't know if it's passed or not but it's sort of like the uncle Dennis rule that teams have twenty four hours to report if any family member or agent asked for benefits and during the free agency period that circumvent the right because there's the all the reports of Leonard being offered offered like free apartments in downtown Toronto and all that kind of stuff got an airplane. That's actually okay. It's okay if somebody who's just like an outside person wants to do a deal with your type of fan but you can't present it to the free agent during your pitch and that can't be part of the deal so the clippers actually got in trouble for that a few years ago in their presentation..

I just broke okay good so you are familiar with Mr Rogers you watch Mr Rogers CA trump's guy. I grew up in Mr Rogers. Mister Rogers got an honorary degree at my at my graduation from Bowling Green State University and you would say that one of the things that makes Mr Rogers unique is that he really didn't have a sh dick other than kindness right that was his thing highness was his manifesto ESCO yes absolutely he there've been a couple of documentaries the have been made in the neighborhood great documentary okay and there's a movie coming out not called.

There's not much of anything in its Mister Rogers. I don't see that if you showed me that Ed what is this. What does this remind you of? I never would even maybe a better description if you had a Halloween party and this girl in this very attractive but if she walked in you would ask her. What are you dressed like? You wouldn't say oh like if she's dressed as a keystone cop. You know right don't way right. That's a keystone cop yes but sexy. Mr Rogers is not for lack of a better word obvious no not obvious not obvious this so I would vote addressed as Mister Rogers would people like you could you have gray hair gray hair and I could wear a red sweater veteran I could put on my little tennis shoes and do all the things that Mr Rogers whose to the one thing that could do that would sell it came in with a Loafer Anna tennis shoe on and you walked around with a tennis shoe like you're about to change your shoes good good one.

I've been a few times and it is just insane insane. Oh it's it's it's a drudge has just insanity is it's a mix of craziness debauchery Yep raceway raceway to celebrate the holiday very fun when you're very drunk. Sean mcvay expected to join US any minute here obey game. It's early in the season right. It's not a marquee or division games rue. The rams will probably be undefeated Yep. You'RE GONNA be there anyway right. Why not why not? Why can't I be that guy? It doesn't always sell the trio. The answer is you're not a big enough name but the they've got some not very big big name to it. WHO's like the lowest name the least pro I don't want? I don't want you don't want to gyp reacted to do well. Don't say that now. It's true yeah you don't want to you don't want to offend pendants on exactly so tomorrow. I'm going to record the mob kind of Mesa Greg. I think we already have the word right yeah. The word that I have to work in is is it. It's it's scientologists. I've already thought of a way you can do it your articles. I've already there you get that in yeah I don't have to do any. No you know I hate this whole correct. That's why oh you're scared of that word so you have to figure out a way to work and and you do not have to work in any description you don't have to discuss it. You just have to work in the word scientology you want to you can say it and move on like it's just not connected the next day so the rams are playing. Hey Steve Mason here mortician in Ireland every weekend. Let's talk about the rams going to Cleveland Scientology Baker Mayfield. They don't give them in so sure that now I think it'd be cheap if you stole my idea in your own way to do it right and that's not the by the way that's not the way I thought you could work in. I I have another way so let's see if you can pull it off. You know how I feel about that exactly exactly. That's why we're giving it to you. Which is why you're not GonNa win the thousand dollars a miracle money? You failed last week because you you you screwed up the crawfish thing yeah. That was a technicality the county exactly yeah. We're holding you holding you to technicalities all right so that's that's what you have. Yes exactly why we gave you that word and and so you can a work that in but yet the rams I I would think the F. for Tampa Bay game game on Sunday afternoon early in the season. They're not going to do better than you. WHO's not like the eagles are the cowboys? It's not a marquee match up. It's not got a playoff game it just Tampa it is a rematch of the nineteen seventy-nine. NFC Championship game yet. You don't want to the nine two three nine. Two nothing God that was awful. It was all fills you know what's interesting by Cleveland though yes this the rams going into Cleveland Sunday night for the NBC Sunday Night Game Yes it is the first of five straight opponents. The browns will play who are two now in other words their next five games games. There's nine undefeated teams in the NFL right now. The browns play five in a row yup coming up on so this is a huge game for Cleveland. You know they've got to go like they've got to play Seattle. They've I think they play New England. this is a game at home on a Sunday night. The browns have to be treating being this as it's it's critical because if you know they could go into a tailspin here where they finish when they're one in five at the six games if they don't find a winning here so I think into rams better be ready yeah. I don't know how they're gonNa Block Aaron Don Their home to. La There at Baltimore there at San Francisco their home to Seattle then they're at New England yeah and after under a bye week that is a brutal stress really rough looking at it from the I'm not sure if I'm buying yet on San Francisco Okay but look at that the San Francisco hasn't been to know with two road games since one thousand nine hundred seventy eight and they're gonNA. They're going at by the way they're going to three no this week San Francisco plays to the steelers in the bay so therewith Mason Rudolph and those guys so. I think they're GONNA win again. Vision is a lot better this year. I think they're GONNA win again. Okay we just got the word that Sean mcvay is going to join us at four forty so let's break and when we come back the head coach of the Ram Sean mcvay Mason Ireland. ESPN LA I selling out for your teammate and you know you could see the guys love each other in the way that they compete with one another in four one another as you know. We always say you know I I see better than I hear and seeing that right. There is what's special coach obviously a big win. What happened in your head and 'cause I mentioned this John Yesterday? When drew brees got hurt it took some of the took some of the sizzle out of the air at the coliseum what was going through your mind? Well you never wanna see a great player. Light drew get injured. You know that those are things that you never wish whether it's you know for your team or for the opposing team. He's such a great player. He's so great for this game. You Never WanNa see that I thought our defense was great from the to start you know when he did play they had to turn over on the first drive and then force upon on a second and then I ended up getting hurt on a nice play but never want that but I bought our defense was outstanding right from the I nap all the way to the last there was an urgency there was a focus and concentration and it had to be that way against an excellent unit a great scheme and great players and I thought they showed up in a big way Sean mcvay the coach of the rams join in a shun Aaron Aaron. Donald doesn't avenue sacks yet but it appears to me. Just you know watching the novice I a he's still really affecting the game. He's he's disrupting the line. He was actually the guy that was in drew's face when he got hurt is Donald still controlling the game even though he doesn't have a sack yet or are they doing things to neutralize him. No no it's the fast can be misleading. That's why you said you watched the snap. You Watch the game film homer you watch the game snapping and snap out and a player like him influences and affects a game and a lot of ways that don't always necessarily show up on the stats sheet but he's been awesome awesome for the first two games. He's done a great job. You know I think what makes Aaron so special to. He makes everyone around him better. He's raised the level of play defense as a whole and whatever shows up on the status is not indicative in some instances of the contribution may thirty first two weeks can the success of Dante Fowler and Clay Matthews Rushing Chenoweth the edge of that due to the fact that they've got to throw so many people at Aaron Donald All I think they all benefit from playing with one another and then some of the situations that the coaches are putting them in Sean mcvay is with US coach offensively. You always like to say you can always get better. That was a pretty good good offensive performance. I know you guys better but you're basically average in thirty points a game. Where do you still want to improve offensively as you go into week three? I did a really poor job for us in the red zone with some of the place elections you know it really there's no excuse other than just got to be better for our players and got to put him in better spots. You know I thought we moved the ball really well..

"Totals have gone a thousand thirty eight hundred forty seven hundred so let me ask you. This and this may come up tomorrow night. When you and i do fantasy draft people are doing them all over the league your turn to pick comes up up the top three players on the board in no particular order are brandin cooks robert woods and cooper cup so you can have any of jared goff's favourite receivers and you get your pick for fantasy purposes who you take so close. It's not cup because he's more to me possession guy but he's favorite receiver. He's he's roommate. <hes> it's either cooks or woods in it's really close but because of the deep play potential i will say cook i agree agree with you and the other thing is speed with this fast cooks specs player and the t takes the top off defense right so you know that's if you want a lot of yards but i think last year woods had more fantasy woods was woods is phenomenal but that's a really good receiving court is the only other one i can think of that. That kind of hangs with them is atlanta. Atlanta has julio jones. It's calvin ridley and mohamed sanu. Those guys are all really good. Cleveland now is going to have odell beckham junior jarvis landry. I don't know who their third receiver is but you know they'll they'll have to but the rams in terms of if you're going to double somebody thirty on the rams. Who do you double yeah. You probably got to throw a second guy at cooks. When these have the free safety cooks in front of him yeah julio jones sanu calvin ridley would be the other one yeah yeah that's a great receiving core will fuller if he's healthy gives houst- i in deandre hopkins in willfuller guy down there but <hes> but in terms of depth for wide receivers the rams are they don't necessarily have. They don't have a top five but they probably have three top fifteen. This is really good. Chargers keenan allen yeah is is this is really good and williams that monster year last year and and and they i benjamin i can't figure out out james is a huge loss for the chargers and melvin gordon not being camp has to affect them somehow but last last year they were what they went eleven twelve games yeah. They were really good <hes> so interesting to see how they they address melvin gordon. It sounds like just just made a bad decision because now they're not paying him and they've given his agent a chance to admission to shop noth- happening running backs just have become so devalued in the league yeah they've become so devalued and i've i've seen analysis <hes> pro football focus focus that says the chargers offense was actually more efficient with austin on the field than they were with melvin gordon and the northwestern northwestern kid had a good year justin jackson justin jackson so they'll charged that division but you know the the chargers. The chiefs are going to battle it out in the in the a._f._c. west who battles it out with the rams in other words. The rams are gonna win that to seattle again more than san francisco. It's gonna stink. I think i'm not buying in san francisco and the zone is going to be there. They're gonna have a. Let's figure it out kind of year. I'm not buying into san francisco. I wanna see jimmy garoppolo healthy for a season and see what he's capable of. I think it's seattle again right there. All right boy tyler lockett better not get hurt yeah. He's thrown to himself. Yep <hes> all right more mason in ireland coming up where we're going to do some <hes> cross talk at some point with alan sliwa yeah he was doing laker second.

"Sure then the season ticket holder won't have to pay an absurd price to see the third string guys play glorified scrimmage a season ticket holder. Will i'll have to pay one hundred and sixty for the two exhibition games total instead of maybe twelve hundred dollars. That's completely reasonable. Sure it's terrible. Football pau we look at the the scores of the three rams games the rams law and granted the rams played nobody in this preseason but most their opponents have also pretty much played. No no one <hes> the they lost the raiders fourteen to three in an excruciatingly boring game. They lost to the cowboys fourteen ten in another horrible. Oh football game that was the hawaii the white game and then the worst one was this weekend when they played the broncos and they managed to win. It was ten to six sideway two guys that the rams figured to be on that forty five man roster got hurt in that game and now might not be and you don't have those those are a younger guys and those are guys that need certain younger players might need the rap or the reps but they don't right there. They can get those in practice. I like if that's the case arguing. I'm just saying like there. There are situations where there are where you need to see players against other players you do not do do that with top thirty or thirty five ghazni roster that on the back end but you know like the rams damning new offensive line with joe joe note boom and with brian allen moving begin playing center and playing guard like there's you could argue well. They gotta develop some continuity but certainly not if it means putting those guys field donald develop develop against you know in those controlled scrimmage against the cowboys are against the against the chargers do it that way because if no palm gets hurt yeah okay he needed some some reps in a game but he played a little bit last year you know the they'll get up to speed relatively quickly and it's more important that they're there and if they're gonna get hurt least do it. In a gain the counts and by the way these coaches have different agendas the baltimore ravens are sixteen and in their last sixteen preseason games. The atlanta hawks are on in sixteen are atlanta hawks seaplane. A falcons are on the preseason either so some some of these coaches don't even care and they're not they don't wanna show any of their blitz package vineyard. Kyla murray say. I wasn't expecting him to play this game well then. Why are you charging us. Real prizes the whole thing. Ah just should cuyler murray pray probably should you're young backup quarterbacks. Get the game yeah. I mean these are guys who value in could get hurt or whatever but the you know the the the the notion that you have four of these games. It's absurd. Come on so getting so basically if you've learned nothing in the last twenty minutes. We're getting ready to things. Players weakened in n._f._l. Preseason games. They're both useless coming up next fasttrack. I get questions with brian. He's got him for me will tackle them all coming up e._s._p._n. L._a.

"One next the e._s._p._n. L._a. changing the name on your back that's how you get dick mountain which becomes huge okay prior to the last segment this. I'm trying to find it. This was one of greg bergman's signature moments confusing myself. He was confusing himself and then there. Was this one so i don't know vegas weird. I don't know what's happening all right but now now. This is my favorite new bergman. Ism changing the name on your back. That's how you get dick mountain which becomes huge. Can we even amendment losing the chain when you're back that did well. I want a little a little background. I need the work. He didn't do it this year but last year richhill for his nickname wrote dick mountain which was a play on rich hill right yeah richard richard because people named richard dick and hill mountain and everybody says why does it take dick mountain shirt that was what was the plan words and that led to greg things changing the name on your back. That's how you get dick. Mountain which becomes huge feel like this is the morning show all of a sudden rows away. You really hit john huge huge. So do you know what you know where the rams are playing on thursday right. I know they're not playing at the coliseum. No that's all greg there in houston caracas okay so over the weekend houston loss lamar miller their lead running or yeah seizing when he wrecked his co. J. draft him yeah good point. What are we doing with these n._f._l. Preseason games sean mcveigh's got it right. Don't play anybody important. I i agree the there's no point of four is too many maybe need to to sort out the last ten spots neurosis or whatever it is i. Why is the more miller playing like what's ninety. What do you need cam newton on on the field for the week before like why we'll wait white brian. I wanna take it a step further. Why do we need these games. We don't we don't but they exist and so while they exist. It doesn't mean if you're who's still bill o'brien like you don't need to play lamar miller. You don't it. It seems to me that the momentum for this get rid of the n._f._l. Preseason games is never never been higher i would i think that make the argument to keep them is strictly money. That's the only reason why because the owners get a lot of money. Peter king i talked about how he hey rights icon for pro football talk every monday which is replaced is old monday morning quarterback. Here's what king wrote this morning who i really respect when it comes to n._f._l. Stuff i think the more nosing around i did about the uselessness of the preseason and the enmity that is creating for fans and coaches alike the more. I'm hearing that the owners are using this as a chip in the new c._b._a. Hey with players that is fraught with problems as far as i'm concerned so the current c._b._a. Rinse the end of the twenty twenty season which means unless unless there's a new deal before next may the n._f._l. Will have the same idiotic four preseason game per team scheduled twenty twenty..

"That. Which is where people go to tibet on the web. He is the odds-on favourite to be the first college football head coach to be fired. Oh yes there's a guy from rutgers illinois auburn b._y._u. Albright behind but he's number one. I think they might get right there. There'a package deal. I think at this point but like if they're losing at halftime against fresno state this fantastic new wi fi they've got at the coliseum. They're going to fire it up to start the coaching search available all right. Let's get to what i think is one of the great stories in los angeles. This season will smith breath is a catcher that the dodgers drafted a few years ago out of the university of louisville he was not drafted brian coming out of high school but he got to louisville developed into a really good catcher and and since he's been in the dodgers system he has developed into a really good hitter and he is a great story best. I work in the dodgers so far this year and he is nice enough to join us now. Well thanks for doing this. Man congratulations on your start. How are you. I'm good. They've you're sure now. Let me ask you this in high school. You're a good pitcher. I think i was looking. I was reading up on this and i think you were seven one eight and one yet an e._r._a. Under one were you always going to be a catcher. Did you think about becoming a pitcher when you got out of high school. No i knew i never really wanted to pitch after high school. <hes> i enjoyed getting too much. I knew going to college do they can't really be both. There's some guys can but i wanted to hit so i wanted to stick with that and willa it. It was kind of fascinating about it. Is you know you enjoyed hitting but like certainly early in your career louisville early in your minor league career. You weren't necessarily that ah good at it what chain what clicked for you you know certainly this year at triple a. and obviously with dodgers when moved up i think in the first couple of years in college struggled a little bit just getting adjusted to the velocity <hes> baseball pitchers and just kind of an adjustment period for me and then yeah pro bowl and really my junior college started together put together goodyear and then pro bowl really started making changes to improve for the better. What can what can you kind of articulate what that feels like as you mentioned sophomore year at lowly hit two forty junior you had three eighty and so something went really well there and then you you look at the minor leagues and you went from <hes>. I think you're in two thousand eighteen and all your stops. You're at two thirty three. I'm looking at the numbers now and then you jumped up to about two seventy and it was on its way up and now with the dodgers. You're not like what physically feels different or mentally feels different once you get that thing to kind of click. I think i'm just i'm getting a good spot to hit. <hes> i'm able to cover a lot of pitches and i'm not missing picks that i'm i'm looking for will smith dodger catcher is our guest who is hitting hitting with power. Will you came up from oklahoma..

"It is something but again i just i. I'm not sure the yankees make that far. I brian left handed. Starting pitching is when they're at your bathroom and is loaded. Yeah his left hand is starting pitching matchups and like you know all these things are short series little matchup type stuff and this matters like the the dodgers might be you better off against houston houston's just as good as the yankees right guard kohl ver- lander all right handed all right which his wife which might be better now. Here's the last one on the yankees and this is the one that might worry me. The most is a dodger fan if they get there now i'm assuming this is if the yankees and dodgers in the world series all right in all and they talked a little bit about this on the broadcast over the weekend the yankees have had twenty eight players on the injured list serving irving thirty five stints among the players brian who could get back for the playoffs some of these jacoby ellsbury next year. He's that good anyway right great some of these guys that they could get back for the play offs giancarlo stanton dylan betances edwin encarnacion. I forgot about greg bird. Aaron hicks luis severino an luke voight if they get half of those guys back aren't they all of a seddon came to be forgotten about encarnacion like i forgot like that's and they also met houston stanton to outfitters would play they are in the world the we'll stand and obviously they already go win that game form in minnesota this year that that crazy thirteen to twelve game greg is a really good starter healthy. He was there. He was there ace last year. I this is a big deal yeah the biggest of all of them because he sets up chapman and boy. Did our guys look bad against chapman. Look the yankees have a fantastic bullpen. There's nothing about that. You can say anything bright so now that i've laid out facts. Do you still if the dodgers meet the yankees. Wanna want to bet the entire question was who's likely to win the world series who would win that match up now i'm now. I'm leaning towards the yankees. If it gets that a quick note on richhill i just looked up at splits based on what you were saying. John <hes> versus lefties to thirteen average against opie s. five seventy two slugging slugging to ninety eight versus righties <hes> that jumps to to ninety four sixty four slugging seven fifty four opiates so righties have been significantly more more successful. Yeah i think the yankees are real threat to the dodgers but as you point out brian they have to get through the american league which we can we can talk about later coming at oh astros drew coming up next what i consider to be the most shocking retirement announcement since magic johnson think about it has has there been one more surprising since magic shocked us all in one thousand nine hundred one. I don't think so we'll get into that coming up next franken. It's e._s._p._n. L._a. Today it's brian cabinet ski in ireland and we are trying to tackle all the stuff that happened over the weekend. I the lakers signed a white howard. Then the dodgers lose two of three to the yankees and then brian on saturday night. I was at dinner to dinner with another couple. I get home and i i hadn't looked at a computer in several hours and check my phone good for you and i just i had to order something on amazon so i open my computer and i see this andrew. Luck is retiring hiring and i swear i thought adam schefter got hacked yeah. I thought there's no way he's twenty nine. He's the quarterback rebecca super bowl contender even research and i knew he had injuries. He'll just get weight and get better..

"<hes> we're talking about anything over there. <hes> you know i'm i'm actually curious. The last couple of days being down there <hes> pelinka's been there and and frank vogel has been there so oh you've seen some of these lakers not all we'll get addressed the media or anything and i'm sure right now they'll be very quiet but i'll be down there today for spain in anaheim and i'll be curious if there is any conversation and you rumors coming out but <hes> how they're gonna fill in that space will be interesting and you know we're all here in the same names whether it's most space or dwight howard heard you guys talking about that today kind of three read more how they fill in that lasts slot i really have. I know i deal what they'll end up doing. But i am curious about how andrea dollar kind of comes into the full i feel like they've kept that roster spot open for that opportunity and that could still be there but we'll see how they by the way if they do it means that they own they can apply for the injury exemption <hes> in other words. If iguala takes a final spot they can apply for the injury <hes> exemption but they can only pay that guy half of what they were paying demarcus like on seven so one seven five is all they have for that spot. You can always create another roster spot. It's not very comfortable. Yeah i mean they did it last long after december fifteenth flexibility lot of flexibility after september fifteenth. There's guys that you could wave. I mean you know look last year. You didn't know how they were going to do it and then michael obesity was on his way out like this. There's there's ways they can do it eventually so don't so they andre would olive oil is always going to hang out there. It's this is really up and up to memphis and they think they can get something for him. They think they can do a trade and i i think they can too but it may take until december fifteenth which is crazy crazy to think that andrea go dolomite is he gonna play for them until december right wolf uncomfortable. Yeah it is <hes> hasely would go sell some ads. <hes> which will allow you to continue hosted or you go that i like the i i've always liked alec and i say this is a nice thing for him. <hes> alan allan shows up at things. This is like my biggest hip to anyone trying to break into the business and be good at it. Yeah go to games go to practices talk to the people that you're going going to be talking about and like actually learn something and have something to say when you're on air and don't just act like you're a expert when you're not right up and listen yeah like that allen job all right. Thank you very much sleep. What and he'll be doing lakers. Talk and selling -at's if you've if maybe gets a lead out of this yeah yeah coming up next is this why is it we will go live have to honolulu where gary klein from the l._a.

It's it's also it fried yeah shit. So what is up how you doing. I'm good you know what i think. I think vastly underestimate the value of sleep so when i get a good night's sleep it's like oh. This is what this feels sure. Oh i i got. I have renewed life yeah. I feel kind of good. I slept pretty how you've been traveling a lot because your is this your <hes>. Ah yeah podcast is coming out on tuesday for people that don't know described the podcast. It's the big donald sterling. It's called the sterling affairs title. I liked right that <hes> and <hes> it's the podcast. It's a five part series not just about that tape. It's about thirty years of basketball in l. A. and how the hell we got to this place <hes> why it took so so long for go ahead you can put a little yeah. Put the put the thing on the mic on there yet make a sound so much better <hes> and how we got to this place where the tape is finally what brings him down after thirty years of egregious behavior right and all the factors that go into it so a lot of one episode one is dramatic. It's like a gritty. It's it's stuff that i ever. I never knew an or you know what he heard about stuff. I never knew or stuff. I used to know. Oh that i completely forgot about yeah. We forgot about all the the details and the wrinkles of the story that first episodes get this great confrontation in between so this is shelly like all in she did all these fresh interviews with ya i mean shelley and i talked. We did maybe three or four hour. Interview was really long long but we talked on the phone ten times more than that <hes> just you know just reporting and backstory and all that and i think <hes> she's just to me the most. It's fascinating character of all oh she is. She's like this is this little old. Lady lewis kinda grandmotherly and she has this cute little voice. You know yeah but she sounds like a real bad ass bad ass yeah. I mean look she talked to know and this is the one thing that i am most sad about okay. This is like the want want. You know whenever you do a project like this. There's always like one person that you tried so hard and they just won't talk to you so like i literally like instagram soccer like she she pops up live on instagram all the time and i'm like we're showman co-founder like and i've i've tried to like direct message with all these friends of hers from way back when even people in her photos now but my everyone has told oh me she has a totally new life. She doesn't want famous anymore. She adopted these two kids. She just wants to be a mom and as your job to two kids wow and i think that was known kind kind of the time but people thought it was more like an octo mom thing <hes> but it was opt part of the story you know that was like part of the like you know why she was donald sterling talk to you <hes> he would not he would not however there's lots of donna lottery in an air and i feel like he was talking to donald for me. Hear those recordings again who is just i remember now. How creepy was yeah and i'm sure still is oh yeah and there's a lot more but he you know what i would say big picture what the story is about. We've had a reckoning in this this country over the last five years where the men who had been in power where they had power over women had power over real estate that power over our economy. They had power over players in the n._b._a. <hes> they've got their come up. <hes> and you know whether that's the metoo movement whether it's donald sterling you know it's it's justice by cell phone. It's justice by journalism yup..
