Know that things have gone forget south man, you're heading to the inner rings of Dante's inferno. When Beasley and McGee are the veterans that have problems with your head coach.

Because this is where we wanted those guys coming in he signed off in jail McGee and land Stevenson Rajon Rondo has not been an issue if anything Rajon Rondo by thinking hurt. Yeah. There's nothing I can say that's going to fix this. Because I know exactly what this situation looks like.

"Because those the crazy is going to be crazy. They're no one's following their development game. Michael Beasley organize, but I do the same thing as you. I was like, where's runners New Orleans, Chicago all this stuff with the weird or whatever the young guys on those teams. Listen, follow Rondo through a brick wall. By the way, if even beyond his charisma, or whatever if you have your young guy, you're looking at like people to listen to your locker room. I you're not gonna listen to those guys. Yeah. The goof troop basically coming up next we got the Sodano scoreboard. And a message for the McVay haters, Brian Chemnitz meat hanging out Saddam show. ESPN LA sit down show here on ESPN LA a mean. Here. Brian cabinets here short segment here. So we got to act quickly. A couple of things we need to get you. I wanna get to this Sean McVay thing because there's already the initial jokes are out anybody one of those Sean McVay disciples, be careful look man, if you made the decision to hire the Sean McVay disciple, and you are somehow worried or shook because they lost the Super Bowl to the greatest quarterback coach combo combo in the history of the sport. Then you know, what you shouldn't be in business. Okay. Like, that's just the reality of you shouldn't own a team. Well, I I would say this. It's why did you hire Sean McVay because the thing what makes McVeigh's is not just the offense of system and all that which you need personnel. Takeaway Todd early and a couple of other people talking to look, right? And all that we saw what happened when they lost Cooper Cup. Like, it took them five weeks figure out what to do about that. Right. The culture that he brought there. It's the it's the way he operates locker room. It's the way he communicates with players. That's what you're buying. If you're buying Sean McVeigh, buying the culture. Yes. Oh, yeah. If you believe that the next guy's gonna bring something like that and can hire good coordinators, then you're fine. With Zach Taylor is your coach or whatever it is. There's another side of this. And it's always been fascinated me. How not just fans but media everybody we say about for instance, Jared Goff cuma couple years. He'll grow hill. Learn he'll get better because of this right? We never see them coaches. Now, some this is who you are is he the rusty alive. We'll never get better at this stage of that part of the game. Even ridiculous, even though Bill Belichick fired from his first job in Cleveland. Yeah. -solutely? Absolutely. And so like, I there's no shame man. You got outcoached by belted out of here. You know, you fire all your clones cooks catches that ball in the corner of the end zone while the whole different ball McVay. Just be Bill bell check, right torch, passed Lyle and. Yeah. And the other part is success is never just like a straight line to the top. There's like the stock market right zigzags. It goes up and down that. Backwards. Sometimes it goes down right goes up. Like, it's there's an Aetna. Flowed all of this. Okay. And I think it's just people I had this. Okay.

"michael beasley" Discussed on Highly Questionable
"When you've got those guys coming after you in the locker room feeling like those are the veterans whose voice needs to be heard on this. And nobody in the locker room is saying that they were out of line. Luke Walton is not long for this job in Lance's defense. He did say he had no part of that and social media, and they just threw his name in the report. But Michael Beasley Jovanovski that's enough. There is no respect for Luke Walton it would appear in that locker room. But the bigger question here for the Lakers is to me what salvageable about this season. Okay. Are they going to make a coaching change? And then use that as an excuse to not make the playoffs. Do they keep Luke? Walton and try to make a playoff push. If they don't get Anthony Davis, which they're likely not going to do at least not this season. And then you go into an off season next year. It seems like nobody wants to go to LA they want to go to New York or elsewhere. So really what's the plan for this year is one playoff push enough to make you look attractive to free agents. Or is this going to be a disaster that looks like unsalvageable all good points in the macro? But let's examine the micro. I defy you to come up with three players on anyone roster throughout the history. Not just basketball, but sports together around the coach and have less respect from the coach looking back on them because their land Stevenson, even though he denies it. Javale all McCain, and Michael Beasley. My favorite players, especially jevon McGee. Got a when L says something because you know, he knows what he's spoken about. You know what I mean? That's right.

NBA preseason 5-on-5 - Lakers, rookies and predictions
"Who does who makes those shots? Is there a high volume thirty, eight percent three point shooter on that jails been working on his jumper. I actually weirdly, I'm not worried about that with the Lakers and I guess part of the reason I'm the main reason I'm optimistic about the Lakers because LeBron's on their team. The other reason I'm optimistic about the Lakers is all the attention been paid to the veterans and why did they sign these guys can't shoot. They don't make any sense there. Playmakers lebrons a playmaker blob of is crazy, Michael Beasley. What? How I think they're young guys are good. Like I think they're young guys are better than those veterans and part of what makes their team confusing. An interesting to me is sort of like how quickly are they going to come to the realization that like heart Kuzina Ingram should all play more than the veterans at Casey, pe- as he's sort of like, tailor-made, he's never been as good as shooters. People think like he looks like a good shooter and he's just an okay one. But you know, as a defense for spot up guy like he fits, he fits what you need around the Bron. I, those guys are all better than the veterans as signed it, and, and that's what's interesting. To me is like, when do they realize that?

"We see playing in the playoffs in April, like they're going to make moves on this roster at some point, the Cavs lash, it is Thomas Dwayne, Wade, Derrick rose. None of them were playing in the finals in June. So I think the flexibility for this is one of the great strengths and he's right soon as things start going south or guy, then even go south or some flair just the guy can't get fit in and contribute. They say, you know what? We can actually add more to the puzzle here. If we get some actually wondering and this is not sourced information. This is just me guessing about playing a bit of a guessing game Michael Beasley, the general consensus. He got. Paid beyond his market value and you gotta overpaid by the Lakers land Stevenson, the general consensus got paid a little bit more than his market value. You know, a million, right? But but the market wasn't four million across the NBA for land Stevenson as a part of me that has wondered if those guys got paid a little bit more than extra just because if they end up not paying playing as much, it's literally hush money, it's because it like be quite you're getting a little paid, paid a little extra for your trouble. Don't complain about this. They wanna play. I know they wanna play and they'll play. Listen. Those going to he's gonna coach feel whoever has a hot night and we know too busy come off the bench and get twenty five. He's that he's capable of doing that. That's not gonna happen every night, but every now and then that's going to happen. And when he gets into one of those zones, he's going to be out this thing last Iverson. He gets out there. I see them for twenty five points disruptive. All over the floor is getting twelve rebounds getting deflections, creating havoc on the floor. He's gonna have certain nights like that. Not not eighty two nights, but I've twenty five or thirty nights is going to have like that. So I close your eyes for a second. Michael, take me to a place. Where? Okay. It's like maybe may fourteenth. May fourteenth, and it's game six on the road at Houston, oracle and. And. Michael Beasley is on stoppable time out warriors. They've got no way answer for Beasley. Look if there were. So if there was such a thing as a Shrek and donkey game, it's not impossible that we could have a Michael Beasley game. Yeah. I mean, if Shrek and donkey, if that thing could happen, what New York when the Lakers last last year basically. S. killing happens. That's that's Tuesday. Nine December might is going to happen. That's why actually closure ADA may me. We got the Kentucky Derby. You've just won money on horse name like almond butter surprise. And now here you are in the end, the playoffs second round and all time out. Mike dantonio. The rockets are complete up people as Lance Stevenson has gone off. Okay. Might be Brandon. Ingram might be coups. It might be Josh hard contagious Colwell pope vast, all the twin is medecine those guys do at once. So the end, the play, I saw a call, we'll have like eight threes in the first half against the kings. When went one month was this January or something like that. I rest my case. The idea. Try to Novus. I've never say never seen it before. Never seen it before. Never seen cow coups go twenty in the second round of the western made the playoffs the last two years. So why don't we temporarily speculations before we start saying that the deepest? 'cause I know these guys capable of doing it. That's why I'm not a. I'm not cost overly cautious like you to leave it. When I, if you if you were disciple, you need to be Judas or Thomas. Maybe both. Lifebuoy doing okay, coming up.

"But he wasn't like a star. He was the best is best to play. I think they got eliminating the first around is I was doing research of his off more year in any offense was not the Princeton offense was not offense. That one guy's gone, be whatever, but like graying not a bus, do the injuries. See, that's that's argued because in the definition, the did say because of injury or didn't live up to expectations. I can understand the idea of Greg Oden being the bus, but it's like it's not due to his own actions, Michael porter, June. Not Michael porter Jr. micro Carter Williams, but he wasn't like a top pick anyway. What's he? Like number eleven. So he had a great rookie year, but it's not like to me a bus is a straight up like an Anthony Bennett. I wouldn't call this what Michael Beasley. Dating day, not the superstar, the two pig, but they were still in a leaf of very big row. So that's why I have to look at like how many players drafted after them turn out to be much better than them. You know, I feel like every has got people who know for sure, for sure. Jim refers ramping to yes from the Sacramento Kings and that lasted a year when he was in a cigar be I was back when you guys love him above. Yeah, that's because he's he's literally out of the league after five years, like you normally after three or four years like yours, if you're getting traded around the g. league. Not to having been in, but your bus because avatar nine. His, you know, he'd been a superstar. He never been out of there and he got that ban. So. So what do you think about the idea of a bus? My when you think of the word bus, what comes to mind? It could be a player or this idea of the player. What? What is the definition of a bus to you at the base all night? The same definition you gave? It's just they don't live with the potential, right? It's kind of hard to look back and be like how many players are better than because you you don't know like the full potential. Everybody. Nobody knew Janas is going to be like everybody even been a first. Yeah. So it's kind of hindsight, but issues. If you don't believe up to the expectation that was set for you. Some people at this table that said, Lonzo ball was a bus after two months, and then I to some people at some person includes then definitely they have to get some type of time. Exactly. Sometimes it's on. There's no way person could be a bus after a singular see is hard to be actually is hard to be us in my opinion. Is very hard. It is extremely hard to be a bus. You gotta be Darko Milicic. You gotta. The champion in a non until you like Donald J like pisses him. In that position, he has his supposed to be. That was easy to be mellow Wade's by know some no way docking was supposed to be second. So that organization plumbing that spot bar Johnny because he had a couple years where he was. Yeah, but does that make him because he wasn't I over all paying raising the actually had a do that. He was good. He was actually pretty good. I don't remember what year he was drafted who was drafted after him. I don't know. Wasn't it? Was it injuries? They made them Philo, who is not now don't worry, I'm I'm gonna go ahead. Google his name. Do I still not a spell it though? Andrea be house. Lewisville like the Andrea. Okay.

No pay lamarcus Aldridge Brandon, ROY, resigned. Rondo cow Laurie were the only with the only all star. Yes. Sport doing that. I think about that pretty often.

Michael Beasley wants to dismiss the narrative surrounding him and the rest of the guys that have joined the Lakers that next it's coming up afternoons on ESPN LA my get your headphones on their, take a listen to this and tell me if you know what this one is. Nothing. That's a expression over there are in our own. I dunno part of NBC's Thursday night lineup, right when it got cranked up. They were the forgotten believe right. Nine thirty slot, right? I don't know if I'm be able to help you. This is you. He's six or seven years old at this point night court. This is the hair Anderson kit. When Brian mentioned that last segment I said, I will not go. I've heard of the name night court. I haven't heard of this night court. That is that is not one that I could've. She will refer to women like that as formative. She was cameras, is mother in something about Mary? That's true. Yeah, quality. I saw that one. Yeah, we'll we'll keep them going. Yeah, I wanna see if there's one that you don't know. Bryan, probably not. I have a feeling you're good at this game. Watch a significant. I can see young cabinets ski in the Saint Louis suburbs, watching a lot of TV after school. My right, yeah. And time TV when my when my wife and I were dating like one of the things we would do because she loves TV also classic TV's Goto on demand, whatever Time Warner was of time and just pull shows at like we watched three seasons of Maud together. There's better shows than good. You'll remember Biggby Arthur guy. My grandmother looked just like the there. You go similar action in there. All right. So Michael Beasley address to the his press conference. And conference call conference call. They had the the obligatory exchange about him and the team and the group of guys that they've put together a couple of interesting quotes. But this, this is the one that kind of jumped out at me at the top. You being a critic doing your job. If everybody does their job and start stops. Judging a lot of players me mainly you'll figure out that guys like me, Nick young Jair Smith and land Stevenson and guys like that. Know how to play basketball when basketball games know how to get along with others. It has nothing to do with my maturity. JR Smith just lost a basketball game in the finals. Not a great guy to pull in as a guy. That is an example of knowing how to win games, land Stevenson and Nick young guys. That again are there there moments where they're pretty good players that can do certain things on the NBA level. But I don't think he made his case the way that he was hoping to make it Brian. And I were listening into this call and the reason that some of these that he spoke as he did. Was that he could clearly tell earliest, you know, the way that he was perceiving some of the questions where, hey, you know, you guys have a bunch of, you know, questionable personalities, basically in. So I support him kind of pushing back at that notion saying, look, you don't know me yet. I get kind of Mike. Well, he's put a lot of information out into the universe through his actions. Okay, everyone's grouping this. You mentioned Lance people grouping like Rondo, Lance veasley and saying that it's, it's this big problem. I will be there every day. I do not intimate it being a problem. I anticipate that at some point on the court veasley could miss it defensive rotation and let Stevenson could make a mistake. Allah JR Smith nets like that stuff. Nick young they do. That's that's is, is legit. JR Smith JR javale McGee has made mistakes on the court before that stuff is all fair because we have evidence of it happening on the court a lot..
LA Lakers Sign Michael Beasley
"Let's get to it. The Lakers keep adding to their roster this off season. Multiple reports. The Lakers have agreed to a one year deal with Michael Beasley was a teammate of LeBron's in Miami Beasley was the number two overall pick in two thousand eight, but has had a history of drug issues during his career. Last year, he averaged about thirteen points per game with the Knicks and the Lakers already at it. Rajon Rondo land Stevenson and javale McGee this off season. We're joined by EVA's one NBA analyst. Chris. I'm gonna get this one starting with skip because I wanna know what you think. What is going on here just for the record, I've covered the NBA even longer than my main Chris Broussard. I started covering the NBA when I was at the LA times back in nineteen seventy seven, and I covered these Los Angeles Lakers. So I've been around for a little while and I've seen thing or to this team now sets up as the most difficult to coach team. I can ever remember. Maybe I'm forgetting one somewhere along the trail, but I don't think so because let me just count the ways. Michael Beasley love is game, loved him before his draft. He's been on seven teams and eleven years for reason. Rajon Rondo has been on six teams in the last five years for a reason land. Stevenson has been on seventeen in the last six years for a reason. Nj, all McGee has been on sixteen eleven years for various reasons. They're all in different ways, extremely difficult to coach from night tonight. They can be moody, they can be. Unpredictable. They can be a little knuckle headed in their own various ways. This is now the NBA's version of the expendable 's and I can't believe that LeBron James signed off on all four of them because I'm pretty sure magic had to take each one of these still LeBron say, you good, you good, you good. He's had history with all four in various ways playing for or against them or with an or against them. And it's like he now has the equivalent of four JR Smith on his team. Not that Rondos knuckle headed. He can just be difficult high basketball, I q Doc. Rivers finally said, I just can't coach him because he thinks he's the coach of my team thinks he knows more than I do. He was the driving force behind New Orleans rise last year into the plows past Portland in the first round. It was highly impressive. And then the pelicans said, no, no, no, we we're not going to go for with Rondo because he's difficult to coach. So all the sudden porn Luke Walton at age thirty eight is sitting. In the volatile mix that he's surrounded with with a lot of bench players who are going to want minutes and make waves of if they don't get their minutes and he's got a lavar ball, sort of hanging over his head from above and you never know which night lavar is just going to go off on Luke Walton and say, the team has quit on him or he should be fired or whatever. So if this team does get off to a little bit of a rocky, start, my Mandla Shannon Sharpe says, yes, it could get off to a rocky start. Everybody thinks that this is going to become a rough mix. You know where the fingers are going to get points early on. The thirty eight year old head coach down at the end of the bench, right? And again, LeBron is going to have to help him coach his team. If in fact, he signed off on these four guys, but I'm gonna remind you. There's been a long running theme in the league that I, I heard around the San Antonio Spurs back in Stephen Jackson days, and I love Stephen Jackson, but he was considered early on in his career despite all of his game and all of his intangibles in character that he did have basketball character. He was considered a knucklehead. He could do knucklehead things in..
Lakers, LeBron James and LeBron discussed on First Take
"What's going on. Everybody welcome. I take Molly came here and we have some major. Exciting news here on I take. I am so happy. So Maxon Stephen may be on vacation, but they are getting ready to take on the Big Apple. I take officially moving to a new studio in New York City. The debut show airs on Labor Day, September, third. So we may be changing the location, but you can still expect the same hot towards debate. And of course, lots of special guests and surprises to welcome the show to New York in speaking of a voice. I miss Steven, you're on the phone. Hey, how's vacation going in your discreet location? Disclose location? Yes. I'm loving loving. Neely, I, you know, I relaxed enough to get ready to beat up on Maxwell another year. And what have you that's a given look comes with the territory, but I mean credibly excited that we're moving to New York City both myself and maximum native New Yorkers. It's been a long time coming. It's something that pleaded in baseball for years, and finally it's happening. So I'm incredibly excited. Yes, I am Stephen, I cannot wait. And I think one of the major things I'm excited about is obviously, you know, it's the mecca for for a lot of things, especially I still consider the NBA as well. And I think certain guests will be able to get there in a lot of other surprise and stuff will have for the show. So I think it'd be major, but I, I know you have to be kind of sad because you're not going to have to drive up to bristle anymore. You're not gonna come up here. You know what it is. It is a very, very sad day because I mean, what's not to love about Bristol, Connecticut. I mean. ESPN down the block that there's a McDonald's and and and and and a ruby Tuesdays and stuff like that. I've really, it's really sad that I'm not going to be able to be there because I'm going to be in new you most times and on occasion, I'll find myself with John and feed and Dominic in LA. I mean my God, it's such a tough tough situation, but I think I'll say, I can't wait and obviously can't wait at four t with you guys. Now that'll be on your home city, but saving, I'll tell team soon. I hope you are actually relaxing for some reason. I don't believe you, but please do that because you know, once you're back, you're back. Just know this when I'm back copy ready, then I'll tell, sorry my condolences to Mexico element in advance must've taken. It's about to be out. All right, Steven, Al. Talk to you soon. All righty. Thank you. Congratulations, Shane. Okay. So we have a first day moving to the Big Apple catch us every day at ten eastern starting on September. Third. Sports right now. I'm at Collins, new Denver Nuggets. Point guard. Isaiah Thomas is sitting down with our MBA insider h. g. now ski, I t who signed a one year two million dollars contract with the nuggets. Last week opened up to watch telling him this free agency was flat out disappointing, the twenty nine year old who continues to fight the perceptions of his help. One onto say, quote, people know that I've earned deserve the Bax contract, and that's the only reason why I didn't get paid what I deserved because I got injured. I get that. The biggest thing for me was to get to the best opportunity for me this summer and show that I'm healthy. You can read. We'll just four article on Thomas right now on ESPN dot com. Staying in the NBA with Kawai heading to Toronto on the broad in Los Angeles. We're looking ahead to who are the best and worst team heading into the season where than forty ESPN reporters, insiders and editors came out with a new set of power rankings. You'd think with James in Los Angeles Lakers at least at the. Five think again, no surprise. The warriors are on top, but three of the top five teams are from the Eastern Conference, the Lakers checking nine, but that's only the six best among Western Conference teams. Let's get back to. I takes Tony. Thank you the Lakers outing. Another piece to help LeBron next season's dining, Michael Beasley to a one year deal. As you just heard the Lakers are number nine in our latest NBA tower, rankings Mazel serve with you. Do think the Lakers or more likely to surprise us as upcoming season or disappoint, you know, I'm a huge Lakers fan. I think they are more likely to disappoint what fortunately with you to say that look. I mean, there are some really interesting piece. I liked the addition of Michael Beasley. They need shooters, but there are some really challenging personalities on this roster land Stevenson and Ray John Rondo and javale McGee. And now Michael Beasley, the expectations are so high for this team. And I think ultimately we're talking about a team that's going to be the six to seven seed. I think in the Western Conference I would never count LeBron. But LeBron James, I don't think has ever been on a team that has finished six or seven in its conference. I think it's going to be a very, very tough challenge for Luke. Walton debt may be the toughest job in the NBA right now, balancing those personalities, balancing those egos and keeping LeBron James happy. Can I respond to Mr. happy over here? Does he need to get in there and say, as I like to say, my real job is at the as the Lakers radio play by play guy. This is going to be great. It's going to be a fascinating lab experiment. Number one, we got LeBron look at the roster LeBron had last year in Cleveland compared to this roster this wrestlers just as good, maybe better. I can't wait to see how these pieces come to. And keep in mind. The Lakers young guys are all getting ready to make a jump. Brandon Ingram doubled his statistical numbers. Last year, Josh Hart was just the MVP of summer league Lonzo ball's coming off of a minor knee surgery, but I expect him to get better this year and Kyle Kuzma was the steal of the draft. I can't wait to see what this Lakers team looks like with will run as the leader. The games are going to be ridiculously exciting, and most of all, we're not going to be losing anymore. I've suffered through five straight losing seasons. The end of that is here, and I think that the Lakers are going to surprise a lot of people in the opposite of Mason. Dominique. I think the Lakers are, if you look at that roster, there's some real possibilities. I think I agree with you in part because I don't think the expectations are very high expectations are pretty low for this team right now. All the reporting about other opinions about this team is that they're the. Main team there. They're a bunch of guys who are wildcards and is no way that you can put together. And it seems like every other week, the Lakers are coming out trying to defend their roster construction and try and explain to us what they're thinking. I think what they're trying to put together as a smart team of bunch of guys who have veteran experience that are adaptable on defense can pass pretty well not as many shoot as you would like to see. But they have a couple of shooters. I think they have a decent team and they have a guy by the name of LeBron James. I don't know if you guys watch the playoffs last year, watch any basketball. James is pretty damn good, and he makes your team a contender immediately. So I think that's -tations are low. So I think they will surprise and then you look at the Western Conference. I think we talk about how heavy how stack the Western Conference is often. I think that's a bit oversold, but to be honest, you look at some of these teams that you think LeBron's going to be worse than Utah. LeBron's going to be worse than Portland LeBron's going to be worse than Denver. Like I know they're good teams, young teams that are getting better, but he's LeBron James and he has a young good coach. Luke Walton wa think is flexible and smart enough to make this team good. I think expectations are low so they will surprise Molly. Where are you on this? They're going to surprise disappoint. What do we think? What do I think people are expecting? Tell me that for fifty wins is what the expectation is an wouldn't you agree make the Ryan that just came out, said that they were ninth in the Powell ratings, right? The ratings ESPN pirating said they're nice night than they're not yet pulling up pulling up the radio. That'd be about right because there's three Eastern Conference teams, so that would put them four, five, six in the state. I think the expectations are Western Conference finals and.

The opponent. But it also could make your locker. Room incredibly volatile and you look at javale McGee he behaved himself in Golden State but Golden State had an entire culture created with. Several veterans who at. One championships keep a McGee and the Nick young and now a DeMarcus cousins in line with the Lakers we're. Talking about one guy LeBron that's got to manage all of that and that's I'm, the. I'm. Betting on I'm fifty three whiz. But that's. Going to be a challenge for him?

"Key. What did you say about the music this doing this music? It's my cousin, tears. I mean a second time, though. I gotta be honest with you. I mean, we had an earlier in the show. I liked tears as much as the next guy, but he thought he was going to be prince for, but you know, he thought he was bigger than prince. He's bigger than Michael Jackson. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Have you heard Keyshawn forty? Six. Forty, five, but a surprise. Thanks to his son. You know what? I thought he was forty six. When I saw this weekend and between drinks of wine, do I need to read the equalizer two? Oh, with Denzel. Today, I think they'll basically win leeann decent on us. I'll tell you thirty minutes thirty minutes. We'll have LC the movie. Tuesday's that. I got a lot of stuff going on. So Michael Beasley is the latest Laker. Here's the thing. I think Michael Beasley is very talented, offensive player. I don't know. I mean, clearly he hasn't lived up to the hype of being the number two overall pick in the draft. But I think that he has some positives to him. I do think as a dude, he's a good dude of the locker room. He's nice players. Love him. He's funny. I think the only thing that I wonder about is defense more importantly, and actually a second thing, which is considering what LeBron just went through playing with JR Smith. Now. I know he's played with Beasley before for a short stint, but he spent a lot of time talking about working with high q. players. Now, say what you want about Lance being a little kooky and crazy. Lance knows the game of basketball. Yes. So I'm not worried about that. What is going on there. Oh, you just change, right. We need new music. Yeah. Okay, that's true. Rondos IQ is not to be questioned. I think Rondos I choose arguably the highest and the game outside of LeBron he's smart, but Michael Beasley would not fall into that category. Thirteen points. Five point, six boards about couple says, fifty percents shooting almost fifty. One percent shooting from the field. Almost forty percent shooting from three by eighty percent free throws. That's what he gave the New York knickerbockers last in seventy four shooting a ton of threes though, like maybe one against threes, but there were there was a stretch. He was playing so well offensively that the New York crowd was saying envy p MVP. Have a lot to cheer. What I will say is, you know, I hear George seeing that. You know it's not a great sign. He doesn't really understand it or see it or whatnot. I didn't say any of that. Actually. I'd said I actually like my goal. I think Michael has provided on the offense event. I just don't think that if you're looking at guys like Rondo Rondos I basketball IQ's through the through the roof. Lances basketball IQ is really good despite some of the antics that's not Michael Beasley. That's not high player. He's a lot more JR Smith than those guys. It must be hi, his I q is high enough that LeBron James signed off on it. He's talented enough, but he must feel comfortable plan with them because clearly magic, rob, as he said, all decisions that they make, they will certainly have a conversation and consult with LeBron James and doing so. So at the end of the day, two stints with LeBron now this will be as third stint, we'll LeBron's from that mistake second Brian from not mistaken. Do you remember that player? Do I think it was like, all right, six, ten, six. Eleven had really narrow shoulders. Lice scanned, really good. Offensive player bounced around eight a lot, but everywhere he went, he was just buckets. I can't remember this guy's name. I remember his name. The reason I brought that was because Michael Beasley ninety planning its fourth team in four seasons, but every single stop. He's just been at least the typically really. But here's where the two percents different fields fifty, two percents Judy against Houston with Houston, fifty, three percents shooting with Milwaukee, fifty..

So was just about winning one. And I bought myself four years over there by just getting the one. How do I change the math here by getting if you guys that can actually do math, maybe. I mean these Lee at a stretch twenty seven twenty to thirty to twenty two. I mean it didn't have a game within that, you know, little flash there in what you didn't take the twenty-seven shots, but I still, yeah. The points about the ws announce when again. No one of donlevatar I would like to help out the board op on golick and wingo cliff. I am your voice. I was you want. I am. You golick and wind. Go laughed at cliff. The board op cliff.

We'll give you a torrent an avalanche, a NAMI of his thoughts from the weekend, and they will be scattered and wonderful, and you will laugh and you will slap your face and you will be delighted, Josh Gordon is in the news. Again, Mike, what is this was very strange, Josh Gordon. Is about as unreliable as an athlete as anyone has ever relied on, and Josh Gordon isn't immense talent. There are very few in the history of the league talent, good enough to lead the league in receiving with Brandon Weeden as the quarterback. And as the only threat his talent is Dell Beckham me, and he is as good at catching footballs and getting open as anyone ever has been really, but he can't be counted on. And now what is the latest with Josh Gordon? Mike, Josh Gordon just announced he made a statement. I will not be in Cleveland for the sort of training camp. Rest assured. This is this is part of my overall health and treatment plan. He doesn't get into detail about that. I pre she ate..

"Could be a simpler this. He's there's no interest implying that might that's. Off. It's a player mushroom offense, and I like the score and so I have no interest in. Now. We've seen a number of players throughout NBA history that are just offense guy. Now I'm just gonna tell you, I'm gonna relate you a story. The last time LeBron played with Michael Beasley. Now Michael Beasley had three stints with the Miami Heat. One of them was with LeBron and when they brought him when they were thinking about bringing him back, the Brian told writer a, yeah, yeah. Bring him in and Dwayne way was like, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, we don't wanna do this trust me when I tell you want to do and they brought him in anyway because not because Michaels bad teammate, not because Mike, Michael great teammate, a great locker room guy. He's a really nice dude. He's just. Not. I don't know if engages the right way to describe it Elsie I think you are more onto it where he just there's something's missing there in regards to playing the game of basketball where his talent doesn't match up the output on either end of the floor, even on offense where he's good. He just he's not great in the team concept necessarily. He's a great individual score all that stuff defensively. He leaves a lot to be desired and he's gonna make a dumb mistake at some point. If you think JR Smith makes mistakes. He does. Michael makes them to and makes them maybe more so than JR makes them. So when you talk about high q. players as talented as Michael Beasley is, Michael Beasley doesn't qualify in my opinion, under high q. players that was George, were I saw the signing, that's this is the first time in which for you was Wagner from me was Michael Beasley signing when I went right now magic, not not not quite sure about this because of the high q. thing and that and we're not saying that busies dumb person don't miss construed correcting. Yeah, you are. No, no, that's not. There is a certain understanding of basketball in the second and third level than at a professional place supposed to come naturally, but could it be that they're not asking him to do what you're that. They're not asking him to do what you want him to do. What say help when he gets picked. Him to do those things. They may just want him to come here for ten minutes game because they wanted him or you originally score or something along those lines. I mean, I was the number two pick in the draft. They weren't bringing him in. Picketed draft that that's so long ago. But what I'm saying, I'm talking about the Lakers. I'm not talking about other teams. He played for about the Miami Heat them to about rob Pelinka, Magic Johnson. They signed him for a specific reason, obviously likes him and I can only assume that the reason the Brown lights 'cause they play either against each other or with each other over the summer and LeBron loves his offensive skill set. We're not just over the summer in general. He knows them, yeah, bananas, but, but for him to be on his team twice now giving. He's from these noses, something about knows talent. What you feel about. I'm sure we'll finish this discussion plus I've got a great not. I've got a great Michael Beasley LeBron encounter the first ever encounter. I've been told the story of how it went down. You wanna listen to it coming up next. But first we got a birthday a golf. Good morning. Oh, no, man. I guess I gotta get it right officially man, happy birthday today. Do you actually yesterday I called them on their eleven. That's my other cousin birthday man. Sorry. But anyway, I have a question about all of these acquisitions at the Lakers have brought in. I mean, it's who the only thing that worries me is I don't wanna see Beasley taking minutes from Kouzmin. I don't wanna see what's his name Stevenson taking taking time away from heart like I wanna see the young players develop, and that's the only question Mark. What do you guys think like is that going to cause a problem for the young man..

"But when you talk about Ingram and Ma and heart and that group of guys, how did the minute shake because you're not Brandon? Ingram minutes are going to be whatever the Lakers want him to have. That's what he's gonna get. He's not gonna lose minutes because there's a log jam. If human beings the Broncos play, pretty much anywhere on the court. So he's going to be out there regardless of what's going on. But when you get into Kuzina and you get into heart and you get into Casey p. and all these other guys that were talking about. There are only so many minutes in a game. Somebody's not going to be getting a lot of time and it seems like all these guys are guys that require a lot of time to evaluate. Well, it's interesting like Lance Stevenson reportedly they're paying four and a half million, which I think some people would consider an overpay and Michael Beasley reportedly getting three and a half, and he's coming off a decent season with the Knicks, but I imagine that's considered top in for what people thought he'd get. I wonder if there's maybe an element of overpay in the sense that looked, there might be some games. You don't play as much. You know, there might be some games where you're not out there as many minutes as you want, and this there's, here's a little sweetener for your eventual unhappiness with that. You know that ultimately, you know, the Lakers are not in rebuild mode. They obviously and win now mode, but these young players matter. Okay. I wonder about that. I. I agree. They're not in rebuild mode. I mean, you can't be in rebuild mode. If you have LeBron James under team, that's not an option, but the wind now piece of it. That's the part that I'm not quite sure. I wonder if they're not in experimentation mode just to try and figure out what do we have exactly and not with all of these characters that they've put together, but rather with their young guys. And we've got some of these characters to fill in the gaps when we need to fill them in. But this is going to be a season where we see whether or not branding of goes to that all star level, whether or not you see with Kyle Kuzma is that really, really affective squad. Hell can Lonzo reduc d got better score with this, but that's what I'm talking about what I'm saying. Like guys like Lance and Michael Beasley and maybe certainly jail McGee who's coming off a season. We played about fifteen minutes and some some games didn't play. All all. These guys may have been told like, look, you're going to be a twenty minute and night a guy max, you know, like we want you here to supplement LeBron and. These younger guys, Brandon Ingram is better than anybody they brought in. I mean, I think he's better than regime Rondo rage on Rhonda was the best of all the people that they brought in Brandon ring rooms better than any of them. So you know, like Kyle Kuzina is as nothing else as good a scorer as any of these veteran sure to have their, you know, Josh Hart was really emerging toward the end, the season in tore up the summer league and for all of lonzo's issues as a score and a shooter. He is an elite rebounder. He is a very good defender. He obviously is a really good passer. There's a lot that that Lonzo does better than some of the guys they brought in. So the these guys may be more supplementary than were picturing just because they're more established names and the kids are the kids, there's a chance and that fat fast forward to two years from now, maybe three years from now that Britain LeBron James is still the best player on this team. And by the way you're talking three years now you're talking about. On his eighteenth or nineteenth season, and we saw Kobe and his eighteenth and nineteenth season not. This is not a knock on Kobe.
