"Design first builders, remodeling homes and building relationships. The Clippers beat the Nuggets right here on ESPN Radio, taking two games to one serious lead, however. Things are getting a little spicy in that Syria's top straight talk sound bites to buy straight talk Wireless. This is Clippers guard Patrick Beverly presents the same type of I don't know. I wouldn't say problems, but he presents the same thing that dances presents. Luca presents. A lot of flailing puts a lot of pressure on the referees to make the right call, So they talk wireless. No contract. No compromise. Well, Nuggets head coach Mike alone was asked about that today. Practice. Charlotte. PJ. Mike said, I don't listen. A tragic Beverly a whole lot. If Kawai Leonard was talking well, then maybe I'd listen. All you gotta do is look at the stat sheet. The right game four tomorrow night, guys. That's Mike Malone. That's a pretty good little gig right there. By the way, I'm sure Mike Malone's half of the N B announcing today that the coaching staff will be able to bring in family for the conference finals. And of course, I think that was prompted by Malone's Talk What, like last week I got a lot of support, talking to the other coaches down here in the bubble ones that still remain, and I think a lot of them felt the same way may have happened may have been going to happen anyhow. I don't know what's going on behind the scenes just getting ready for the next game, which is a lot of fun Almost every night. Absolutely.

Nuggets' Michael Malone: NBA's guest policy "criminal in nature"
"The right thing. In Ba Last week, Nuggets coach Mike Malone brought to the world's attention that MBA coaches aren't being allowed to bring any guests into the bubble. Remember, players are now bringing families and even officials are allowed to bring a plus one to the Orlando Party, but coaches can't This respect coaches are shown in the MBA is staggering, knowing somebody can be a coach of the year, one year and out of a job that next or coaches could be hired with zero experience to lead lead teams contending for championships. But the inability to at least treat coaches like human beings is unreal mental health, not just mental toughness, but actual mental health. Is a huge issue in the bubble. And while we're so consumed with how players are handling these things no one remembers that coaches are also going through separation from their loved ones to treat coaches as less than players and officials is something the MBA can and should immediately fixed by simply doing the right thing in

Michael Malone -- Shame on NBA for not allowing coaches' families in bubble
"Nuggets coach Mike Malone went after the NBA, on Friday, calling their policy of not allowing coaches to bring family into the bubble quo criminal in nature. So you're speaking to reporters ahead of game two and Malone answered a different question about the bubble by saying, he needed to get something off of his chest. So let's play the clip is day number sixty and and the reason I bring that up is because The players have their families here, which which they deserve, which is the right thing to do. Referees are allowed to being one guest, which is great for the referees. The coaches, the coaches are not allowed to bring anybody. I say shame on you NBA. This is crazy. I. Miss My family and I think I speak for me speak for my coaches and probably all the coaches down here sixty days and not having access and not being granted the privileged to have my family come here to me is criminal in nature and that shouldn't be Jin at all so I want to get that off my chest. So. Nuggets coach Mike Malone very upset there I know some other coaches sort of a you know had his back with these comments. Tasks way. What do you think is Malone overreacting is fair. What's your opinion? Well, let's just clear this scenario here just to make sure everybody's got it. Straight the players didn't have their families until this round either so they went. Fifty fifty five sixty days without seeing their families either and thinking back. I. It's Kinda surprising that they didn't demand that from the beginning or or at least a lot earlier right. So other twenty, two teams that came down there. Now, there's only eight fourteen of the teams didn't see their families whatsoever but now to to Michael Malone's part of it because it is surprising that. The players are allowed. So about fifteen of the thirty five people that come with each organization, the fifteen players get their families to come with them but the other twenty don't, and that's surprising a really surprising that I I didn't know the referee ruled that the refusal. To know that at all, I'm not sure win that took place if if that was from the beginning or what, but it would make sense for the coaches to have somebody a significant other possibly there are there are probably they're older as well most of these coaches. So a lot of them probably don't have little kids that would wanna be down the bubble, but significant other would make sense and and I'm just surprised looking back. We didn't go. We talked about the hundred and thirty five page manual over and over and over again in the months of April and May and June while this was happening. And all the rules and know we weren't really up in arms about it because we know it's a players league and they get first crack at everything about looking back. Yeah. It would be make sense not just for the coaches and the party to have somebody there but the players as well from the beginning and. I don't I'm not I'm not gonna get nickel and dime in think this hotel room is gonNa cost much I. Know It's costing the the NBA A lot, but they can afford to put up. Or even. An older these coaches are older may not even cost them another hotel room they could just be in the same hotel. Now I'm nickel and diming make sense that have their families there at least. One or two people they don't have to have a cousin Joe and cousin bill come on but at least their their their nuclear core family. That would that would make sense. So I'm with I Echo I echo coach Michael Malone. Salon couple months, but they probably should have had it for the whole time and not even now? Well, no, you can't say I don't think we can say they everybody should have had it from the whole from the jump from the start because we let's try and remember like months ago how insane like this ideal even was and whether it was even going to work and we were pretty convinced the more people you try to add into the bubble, the less likely it is going to be successful. So that meets sense like I'm sorry guys you are going to be away from your. Family's players included I. Think we're the frustration is coming from with the coaches and I think rightfully is it sounded like the NBA at the time when they're making the manual going through all the logistics and say, okay, well, the players like you know if they're here the playoffs, they can bring people down coaches. We don't WanNa lock that in right now because we're not convinced this whole experiments going to work this whole campus things going to work, but we will revisit it. That's what it sounded like they sort of said to them they didn't say no, you never see your family again. You want coach come down here and your coaching. It sounded like, yeah, that might be a possibility. We'll put that on the side burner and then we'll revisit that and now we're at the point to revisiting it and they have decided that they're not going to do it and it sort of probably you're a coach down there going look this is working. This is a safe you know why can't we now the coaches that remain here with now opening up of rooms and stuff like that I think. That's a fair like frustration if I was a coach.

"Well no one else seemed to even be able to move their body the way he is so. I'm not saying okay. That means better Lebron. I think it's really a fair conversation in that ability wise. I don't think there's necessarily that big of a gap but yeah I would. I would put a little bit more of Of of that stuff the end for for Michael and the fact that you know. It's just hard to argue against his visit age. You know sometimes just simple as that so I wish I had like a really really special answer that you've never heard before but we've been doing this for like ten years so I don't know what else dad you know what I thought when I listened to him malone quote which was it was like like you and I are talking and walking around studio. And we're like super candid and honest and we're not doing any kind of filtering of like how this might play or you're not doing any kind of like. Oh I'm I'm speaking publicly on the radio right now right like Baloney sounded like that sounded. Like I'm just talking to my buddy and be like Maude. You'd like Michael is the best. You have that killer instinct. He dominated the league in a way that no one ever has he had that tees ripped your heart out like he and then all of a sudden if you keep reading that quote. There's there's like this part of the end where he kinda like realizes. Oh I'm on a call with reporters. Then he sort of like walks it back a little you keep reading the door. Theresa's he says something like but Lebron you know he's great to he might be the greatest of all time arguably the greatest of all time as well right as well like this you. Did I get where you're going with is like? Hey it's this nonsense again. I'm on Lebron side when he passed on your Marshall. Okay Yeah I take two on him passing freaking all star game where you just don't get it so I watched the game five and ninety three the Charles Smith game the other day because we're doing these games concerts back and watch him talking about him and guess who passes to the corner for j Armstrong three and a drive. It doesn't force. It is them Jay. Do you know a lot of stuff that's happened to. Lebron has been totally unfair. But I guess if we have enough people that either coached or played against MJ. And there's some guys in the nineties. I didn't hear about who played who are hall of famers. I'm like you're the worst source on anything. Because you're so incredibly protective of your own era. I don't think it's the end of the world for a few people that were close to go. You know I think maybe this guy was wired a little bit different the other guy who may be you know the second best ever play. I I guess I just wish I didn't have to feel like I had to bring up reasons to dump on lebrons proper sure MT argument. That's pretty good point special. Yeah I totally get it right before we let you go you've now been in La for a while this'll be true litmus test as to your real Angelino. Did you feel the earthquake yesterday? Okay I was I. I have a whole sleep monitoring system. Now I'm just trying to figure out how bad sleeping patterns are and it's constantly like you didn't get enough again. You didn't get enough again so last night. I was like I am going to just be out. So here's here's a two part. I know you want to hang up on me here but no go squat racking my my garage that I was bad that once I finished I almost killed myself trying to get it upright and then realized it wasn't gonNA clear the ceiling so I was so I was the worst mood. I was incredibly mad but really is. It's just not that big of a deal it's up to the page and move on more positive. I- looking thing going already just GonNa leave this thing side like what if there was an earthquake building up or it's GonNa fall all over your stuff in the garage. This is crazy. That's actually happening so I spent like another ten minutes tightening the bolts. Even though I have to take it apart again I can't believe I did it. And then my woke up in the middle of the night hearing it from a dead sleep which is pretty shocking I was like Whoa. What's that somebody crash in my house? And then I got my squad wreck fell. I can't believe it was Super Mad and went downstairs. Wait was that an earthquake. So that's my real quick story too long and probably not that great now. No was perfect. Midnight is the middle of the night for you. I get up really early because they have on the east coast stuff going on. Yeah here I'm not up to like to watch and Sacramento Games anymore. I would've definitely would have been like for solo the night al Qaeda. You know I thought you were like yeah. I mean twenty something years to relay 'em when I finally fell asleep I still get up at seven or eight the next day but now I'm up. I'm up early now. You know market-moving trying to make maybe go with making coin playing that Bitcoin. It's only at sixty eight hundred right now. You know what I'm saying. Nothing right Russillo. Check out the Ryen Russillo. Show podcast on the ringer and of course on Sundays. Bill Simmons as well his weekly stint there on the report. Hey man thanks for hanging out with US.

"Quite as like a the metric is a shot is a shot at has made Glendon and try to be any issue to be you. Lock Down Your your player. Fourth quarter that justice as a person. I agree wholeheartedly and I don't think that gets discussed enough. Thanks for the call Greg. Stay safe and yeah I pretty sure Brown. I think silence might have been gone but Ramona. He was twenty two or twenty years old tops when he beat the Pistons Team Scoring those twenty five points. Yeah and young. We've had a chance to go back and watch young. Lebron League for different showing all the classic games like it's like a different guy. I mean he really is young Lebron. He's like skinny and you. Can you hear me. He's still he's still like built. You know you've got Muslim but he's nothing he is today and he had that instinct and I just I really think that when I when I watched the browns play and I felt pretty much entire career. Lebron reminds me a whole lot more magic Johnson than he does of Michael Jordan like. He's just magic was magic with a guy who made everybody better magic could trash-talk magic could be on the court. He had killer instinct but like he was the facilitator of one of the greatest offenses in history. Right and he was you know. He's a facilitator elevates. Everyone and I think that like Lebron doesn't get credit because you're comparing apples oranges. Because they're just not wired that they're just they're just literally not constructed on the same manufacturing line that's just not. It's just a different guy for sure. One hundred percent speaking of magic though. Did you see this story and the Ad Learning today? About how magic was quoted in the Daily News in one thousand? Nine hundred sixty eight quote. I wanted to be with the Knicks. But we couldn't work it out. It was a little bit more than just talk. We had we had talked about it. What it would take the whole thing and the Lakers said No. And that was the bottom line so he goes into this history there like kind of looking through all these different quotes from magic and Pat Riley and Jerry West at the time to see if it actually happened in. Allegedly Cornillon Rosen. Magic's llahu manager. He said that that it was completely misconstrued that it was just a conversation between Pat and Magic as Pat was coaching the Knicks at the time. And he thought maybe help them to remember. Obviously magic was not playing at that particular time after he had he had HIV and he had to retire is forced to retire because of HIV and did come back in the ninety six season. But I guess prior to that he had explored allegedly trying to come back and et. Lon denied all of that. He said it was nothing. It was just a conversation amongst friends that the driver had called the New York Post but now the writers in the like well. We didn't find anything in the New York Post so it is interesting though because Jerry. West said that it didn't happen that he though there are apparently stories in here that say that that magic may have come to Jerry and Jerry said no no shot. He'll never be traded. You know that that's never going to happen. Like this is just like fun stuff to dig through at a time like this. Because everyone's talking about they would have been traded. Matt Shack Apparently said at the other day that had he was told before that Piston series that if they lost he was out. Magic was trying to get traded to the knicks to reunite with Riley but no no confirmation from magic and his side on any of this stuff. It is just a fun time to explore all this stuff well. Magic was the one who kind of spilled the beans. It wasn't just that the New York Post wrote it right. Didn't he isn't. He told the Daily News in one thousand nine hundred sixty s that he tried. I guess yes. Yeah okay look now. We have dealt with magic as an executive for the last few years right. So I'll I'll remember you know the time when he told me that he was recruiting Leonard. Right like he said asked to speak to me and he's going to reach out to buy and and it was like. Oh what on record and I remember asking Him Right. Because you know you're on the phone with somebody sometimes and you're like okay. I just want to be clear. Are we on the record for this one? You know. We're we're on the record and he's Aghia. Yep Okay we and it was. It was not exactly what was happening. He was over generalizing exactly the conversations he had had. I think he was talking more to like Dennis Robinson than he was talking to buy that he was sending a message that he would be available if Karadzic wanted to talk to him. I think Dennis was trying to arrange that I think magic was also just trying to help the Lakers and he felt like I wanted to talk to them as part of that. But you know honestly I think the biggest issue is magic. Just magic doesn't care about on the record. He's he's fine. Just say that. There's a reason why the award in the NBA. That is given every year for the player. Who shows the best cooperation into the media is named for Magic Johnson? It's not just cooperation. That guy I mean. He gives you a lot of stuff. There's no doubt yeah. He's not trying to spin it or hide it or anything like that. Like what he says is what's happened. So if I'M NOT CALLING. Lon Rosen out or anything like that but I. I didn't cover the team at the time. I'm just saying if magic said it. I tend to believe it. I think he. I don't think in your Daily News created the quotes out of Nowhere Nineteen ninety-six sure he may be overstated. Things a little bit or maybe just Kinda oversimplify. Maybe it wasn't as close to be you know to wasn't exactly what he said. We may be overstating but Lawn Rosen's job is literally to walk back and cleanup quote. I'm sure he did a lot of that back in the day. And he's he got that call twenty years later. Same thing yeah. It's pretty hilarious. Because apparently the resets of magic and the they couldn't get him on the radio and they reached out to Riley at the end. They're like no Riley's not talking right. There's no way riles wants to get involved in something. That's thirty years old. There's no chance he wants to do with that nuts. This whole story. Got Me thinking about though. Is You know how so many things just get lost a history like? Yeah but you know. There's just so many stories that like are really big story for a minute and then they just kind of go away. Like the news cycle chain do they. They'd never come back up. I feel like now that we're all in this like timeout. And we're all quarantined and stuff like what are some. I want like find me on twitter at George on twitter. What are some of the stories that you never felt like you got the real story on or you always felt like or two that we should go rian reexamined? Hit US up right now at Sodano at Ramona. Shelburne hit it separate now. We'll talk about it on the other side and throughout the show on twitter Ad Saddam at Ramona Shelbert. Coming up next though reunion for GRONK and Brady but are they starting a movement. We'll tell you what that's next. We're back in less than four minutes. Sodano Ramona's seven ten. Espn SODANO WITH. A here on seven ten. Espn Mama Momo hanging out today riding shotgun all presented by progressive insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. Ryen Russillo going to join US eight minutes. We'll have fun talking to our buddy from the ringer. We'll talk college football. Nba NFL with him Speaking of the NFL. Mamo we had a reunion drunken Brady on. Thanks again for the content. We appreciate it Gronk and Brady you guys But here's the thing Momo. Reunions don't always go as well as we think right. Sometimes these reunions make a lot of sense and we all get excited for them but I would say rarely. Do they turn out as well as the originals? The sequels no rarely as good as the original right. And you know it's interesting you know. Gronk spin away like he's if you look at it now doesn't he looked like he lost like forty pounds. Yeah you looks like it doesn't have the same muscle tone like he used to like. He's a he did that one interview where he lost his joy for life. I mean that's pretty intense right so I just kind of feel like with him. You know sometimes you come back and you're not always the same guy you know. You're not always the same persona and I think that a lot of this reunion. I'm excited for it because I think that there I think that they're you know a great combination merely curious to see what they become but also just like also wondering like how what kind of state of mind is really right and by the way Brady was not that great last year now we can blame it on weapons but now there's no more blaming it on weapons especially if they keep. Oj Howard and they have two tight ends kind of like what he used to have back in the day with Bronx Aaron Hernandez plus. He's got Mike Evans in Chris. Godwin he's got like real receivers real weapons to work with and you know Brady last year. After week four he was the equivalent of Mitchell. Trubisky okay from a statistical standpoint so I am curious to see how they're gonNA look and maybe Brady is in a resurgence but clearly I feel like him in. The one. Common thread was that they were tired of ballot check. Jeff Darlington was on sportscenter yesterday and basically said as much. Yeah and I think that. That's that's now reframing this discussion like I think we already knew that we already knew that you know playing for Bella. Check for all. Those years was wearing grading on people. But I think you know to actually see Tom. Leave to actually see Gronkowski. Come out of retirement and they want to go play for Tom in my in Tampa Bay and then did you see the. Did you see the video that the Brady posted on social media this morning radio? Brady's playing the show far right. If you those of you who are Jewish. Know what that is. That's like this It's like a Ram's horn that we play like on Roche's shot and it's like the New Year and it's it's what we play to to say like you know because he you know it's it's The New Year is here right. We're GONNA celebrate right. Yeah Yeah and so. He plays the show. Far Gras comes. Running out of the woods comes strong. I think it's GonNa be a really fun. Buddy buddy movie down there in Tampa Bay right. I really hope they're good. I really that this works but I'm not sure 'cause like I don't know Bronx going to have to get in the gym..

"There's no news we need news and Michael Malone is. Ramona said may have just forgotten who the hell he was talking to. Because it's all over there now. He was talking to a group of reporters. And here's the quote Michael Malone said the thing here's the thing today it comes to Jordan versus Lebron quote. It's always an ongoing argument about. Who's the goat? Michael obviously is up there and is the greatest of all time alone said Tuesday on zoom call with reporters. There are not many Michael. Jordan's out there. I coached Lebron James for five years and have a great relationship with him. Maybe not after this quote Lebron did not have the same mindset or killer mentality that Michael Jordan is supposed to have but Lebron James is arguably the greatest of all time as well. Michael Jordan was not just a great player. He would reach into your chest and pull it pull your heart out if he had to win the game. It's like mortal Kombat. You don't see really often. He had that killer mindset and brought it every single night. That's why all of these many years later. He's the greatest of all time. So Ramona if you are Lebron James who Michael Malone did coach for five years as an assistant who he does like right like we've seen them embracing talk when they play each other. My guess is today Lebron. Maybe not mad but but probably irked this morning. Yes super interesting quote towards. Okay if I- Lebron I'm like. Whoa my like I'm GonNa call you Michael. I'm going to call you to that quote right. I don't blame Malone for saying because it's actually you know an opinion that a lot of people have right. It's probably right but it's one of those things that like politically most coaches most people in the modern NBA. Who have to face Lebron James reasonably all the time right. They don't say anything like that ever. They steer clear quotes like that ever and so while I appreciate his honesty. It's a little bit. It's a little bit interesting that he would even go there because you might be playing them in the playoffs a couple of weeks or a couple of months or whatever that's going to be and here's the thing. Is it really fair to say something like that like? Lebron lacks killer instinct now. And maybe that's not what he said. You know what I'm saying like he he didn't say he doesn't have killer instinct. He says he doesn't have the same killer mentality. That Michael Jordan had and look Lebron different guy and it's kind of like the first year Ramona. When Lebron got here last season feel like you and I and windhorst and a lot of people who were around here who had been around Lebron right at for any extended period of time. We're trying to explain to Laker fans. Okay you're going to need to understand this dude's not Kobe. He's not wired the same way. He's amazing in his own right and perhaps even better but it's it's just going to be different than what you're used to and I think it took fans here a wild kind of figure that out too. Yeah I think that's a good point and one of the things that outlet I'M GONNA stand up Lebron a little bit okay like I usually go on the Michael Jordan. Kobe side things. Because I like that killer instinct liked that I liked that persona that they adopted but one of the best stories I've read about. Lebron was pretty early in his career And it's our friendly Jenkins who now works for the clippers. But he was a writer at sports illustrated for a long time. And there's a story about how like Lebron sort of has this. He's wired differently. He's not wired to say. I WANNA be the guy at the end of the game. Who takes the last shot? Maybe maybe the last ten shots right. Let's it's not even one child. It's ten shots. Lebron is wired to elevate his teammates. Lebron's wired it a completely different way of. He's more magic right. He's more like I'm going to be the point guard that makes everybody great rather than the what the the the assassin who's going to rip your heart out and and and just just going up against him intimidating great. That's that's Kinda never been Lebron and I will. I will say this as you watched the documentary. Okay as this unfolds. It does give me an appreciation for Lebron James. Because you could you could reasonably come away from the Jordan documentary thinking. Did Mike just retire because he got tired of the pressure and media? Like that's twice really. I mean yeah it. Kinda feels like that you know we've seen Kevin Durant have like sort of media meltdowns and you could tell that he doesn't do well with that constant scrutiny constant fish bowl that was around the warriors and around him all the time it would be like. Kevin Durant up and retiring. I mean like there's this. There's this feeling about Mike retiring the first time on the second time that maybe he just got tired of it all and went away. And I don't know the Bron James has been the most over covered over scrutinized player probably ever because we have the modern media. Lansky you know throughout his entire career where it's twenty four seven twitter. You know sportscenter all around the clock like picking apart his every move and like. I don't know if you if you if you think about. The broad James has had to endure but like the media landscape that he has thrived in and played his entire career in like. I have a pretty pretty hearty appreciation for that. Because nobody ever run from it right yeah. He's embraced it. Actually a lot of ways learn how to control it outside and when I hear outside of the first year after the decision. He's completely embraced it. Yeah and when you watch the Michael Documenta you'll see. It's like the him stepping away from to go play. Baseball was a lot about his father being murdered and he needed a break and that was really hard on him but he says in one of the episodes. I don't think it's this week. I think it's later. But he even says in one of the episodes his to his biographer. There's a guy who who wrote a Michael Jordan bag feed who is really close to. He told him after the Dream Team after nineteen ninety two that he was thinking about retiring. You that the only reason even came back for nineteen ninety three is because magic and had had had never done three Pete and in order to be considered among the greatest of all time or the. You know as good as those guys. He wanted to go for a three peat and do something they'd never done. He was even thinking about it back in ninety two. And so I don't know I mean. What do you make of that like you know that? That's how jarring the landscape was. The pressure was on Jordan whereas like Lebron has anything sometimes. I think he tries to create attention around. Yeah yeah if anything. He likes to stir the a little bit some of the passive aggressive comments. Yeah and by the way though I'll answer the Jordan stuff I but I wanna go back to the Bonn stuff with the killer instinct because I do that stuff gets overblown in some way shape or form to but yeah clearly Michael Jordan dealt with the pressures of it now Michael Jordan loved the competitive part of it because I remember who it was easily like Hanner twelve years ago. Now maybe where Dan Le Batard went on a trip for. Espn the magazine with Michael Jordan to China and and he talked about like at that time like Jordan was quoted as saying like that he he kind of is a little jealous of Kobe at the time and Lebron because they're still young right and they I would love to play. Those guys are playing against those guys. He's still had the competitive fire. But I think you're right. It's all the other stuff that became the issue for him that surrounded him. That would've been worse in today's Day and age for sure as opposed to back then when we can hide that he was gambling in Atlantic city before playing the Nixon. A playoff game. You know what I mean like era and as far as Lebron look he gets nailed for the stuff that we were talking about right like you don't know clutched gene rights. Give infamously saying but I vehemently remember that in game. Seven of the two thousand thirteen finals in a nip and. Tuck game against the Spurs. It was like a one or two possession game. He hit a an elbow jumper from the right elbow with less than twenty seconds to go to basically seal the championship for the heat. Gave them a five point lead or a six point lead with like twenty seconds to go and he you know he kind of did the you know the not the fist pump. The kind of like you're pulling the the the horn on a tractor trailer. Something like he did that Yano Fist pump. Where he's like. I know I got it now. Finally I hit that shot now. People can shut the hell up and the other part is to get. It wasn't a shot but that chase down block of Andre Agassi that's clutch. I don't care what anybody says to me. And that's killer instinct too so I agree with all that but he had almost learn that that that you know you look Michael Story. Arc as a player. Michael's essential nature Kobe's essential. Nature is just to be. You know the guy the new real he they WANNA be the man at the end of the game. Take all the shots and if anything. They had to learn how to like involve their teammates. They had to like learn to share whereas I think Lebron Lebron's essential nature is to share and he had to learn how to be the guy so they're almost backwards backwards. You know these are opposite career tracks but you know look it's all GonNa come down to rings and when we have this greatest player of all time debate and Michaels got six right like Lebron. Just got a ways to go. And that's why I think what's what's going on this season with you know everything being postponed and uncertainty around whether we come back and if we come back this season this this this really does affect his legacy. You Know He. He thought hunts right. He's on he's got he's GonNa win three more to be in that same conversation and I. I think they're just physically the way he looked the way he was playing this year He was right there and I and I know that's gotta be somewhere when we all allow ourselves to have selfish thoughts at this time. Do you allow yourself selfish thoughts? Maybe we don't acknowledge them publicly. Because what's going on in the world and the people who are having real problems yes we all have those self you'll have in Lebron's moments of those. Of course he's got to be thinking. You know stuff in an amazing shape. You've got a team together. They've got they gotta play an incredible level. They were right. There rated win a championship. Twenty twenty happens right pandemic happens. Like what is what's going to do about how it's going to be and I I think that there's there's Kinda nothing you can say or do just is what it is and we all are sort of dealing with that and then in the spirit of you know much larger issues in the world and accepting that but yeah this is. Lebron's legacy is going to be measured and raise. It is. Yeah we're clearly all managing and he's doing it too but you're right. It is going to be interesting to see how this unfolds. I WANNA get into that with you. A little later in the show about what kind of the landscape is for the NBA and a possible return? We'll do that in a bit. Thank you Michael Malone go for providing content for Denver Nuggets head coach. We appreciate it. I will open up to the phones. We like to do that. At Eight. Seven seven seven. Espn is it fair that Lebron gets criticized for his quote unquote lack of killer instinct? Is that a fair assessment to bestow upon Him. Eight seven seven seven.

He also had nine rebounds said coach Mike Malone says the kid just goes out and plays. You never use fatigue as an excuse for naval use any that. We're a no excuse team. And I think Nicole is a great example of the now you guys you're talking are your g about the officiating and the players really getting into it and GM's getting into here was Damian Lillard. He admits they were a bit too chirpy with the officials. Maybe we need to know not say as much, but I mean, anytime you see guys wanted that bed. You don't you don't say stuff. Sometimes I think, you know, we might have had a little bit too much that tonight. So I guess they like the way the guy did not see this game.

Coach Mike Malone, really proud of him. You know, he was so frustrated at halftime, you know, and not making shots shots at he's made his whole career, and then I just grabbed him but said listen ticket breath. Putting so much pressure on yourself every shot right now is like the end of the world believing.

I'm not sure how many of those in the fourth quarter was great to see you know, fan to have some success after game one after the first half.

Twenty points in a playoff game for the third time in franchise history for the first time since nineteen eighty eight. Nuggets thirty four and seven at home in the regular season. And they earn a split in the first two against the Spurs Gregg Popovich five and one in road playoff games against the nuggets. Well, we give up thirty eight points in the fourth quarter end of story. Tough to win a game on the road in the playoffs. If you're going to give up thirty eight points and fallen Jamal had a lot to do with that. Obviously, they both hurt us badly. We didn't have any answers for either one of them. You thought someone going back to San Antonio with the split. I mean, that's kind of what most teams to what to do in the first to crack. Sure. One artist split if you lose game. One course if you win game one you want to go home leading two games to none. Spurs led this one by as many as nineteen time for the third largest blown lead by the Spurs under Gregg Popovich in the playoffs. Denver had to find some composure to dig themselves out of their double digit whole at home. ESPN analyst, Tim Legler. They looked very uncomfortable. Honestly, the first half of this game Yokich again had another slow start. I was counting on him. If you're nuggets fan you to come out and get them going put them on your back. He struggled early Jamal Murray. Continued to jittery players were picking it up San Antonio. Look, very poised then what happens Jamal Murray turned his night around individually about as dramatically.

"That's our toll free line other game in the Western Conference on Tuesday night was a bit of a surprise if you know what the San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich are all about now in this case, the Spurs had built a double digit lead back. They were up nineteen against the Denver Nuggets in this game going on in Denver, right? So. Denver had a great homecourt advantage this year. They only lost seven games all season at home out of the forty one. They played it home. And yet here they were in danger of going down to against the Spurs Spurs played very well against the nuggets combination. The experience the coaching all of that though. Mike Malone made some really smart move in this game to one of those being not benching Jamal Bari. So as point guard really struggled, and you may remember the end of game number one. He had the big turnover. He missed a shot that was the game that went down to the wire, of course. And so in this game he starts out the first half. In fact, the first three quarters had just three points and was really struggling with his shot. And might Malone says after the fact I didn't wanna pull him because I didn't want to to completely blow up his confidence. I didn't want him to feel bad and feel like we didn't trust him. And so he leaves all there, and what is Murray do but. Or ward in with twenty one fourth quarter points. I love that about a coach who will trust his guys, certainly. There was a sense of urgency. Maybe even a little bit of panic with the nuggets being down nearly twenty points and in danger of falling into that. Oh to whole but Murray had the confidence of his coach and his teammates. And we've talked about this before also human nature, they these are highly paid athletes, but they're people, and when you have other people who believe in you, it makes a world of difference. And of course, Murray can shoot we know he can shoot the shots just dropping, but he was a force in the fourth quarter with twenty one points and the nuggets rally and this I events gives up thirty nine points in the fourth quarter. And that essentially was the bottom line for Gregg Popovich before he walked away from the media. He said we gave up thirty nine points in the fourth quarter period. What else do you need to know? Dhamar Rosen added a few comments on top of that we made. A few mistakes..

Denver Dominates Los Angeles, as Lakers Lose by 32
"Was the seven hundred seventy th time in the Brian James career his team attempted at least twenty three's in a game. This was the worst percentage that that team had in any of them. Meanwhile, for the nuggets head coach Mike Malone was asked if he thought his team converted any Laker fans who were in the crowd with the nuggets performance tonight. We don't want any converse with us. You're against us. We understand when we play these great. Lebron is arguably the best player ever. And when he comes to town and the Lakers their fans carry, but as long as their fans, go home disappointed in this whole I care about. So the war your fans can commit here. The Celtic fans can come in here. Laker fans come in here. But take that L on the way out. Okay. Take that take it take you. Not too long about that. But let's go back to the brand for just a minute here because we were talking before the show about the one thing the Lakers really struggle with this year and Denver exploited. It will LeBron was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers we talked about how much of a load he needed to carry. If you look at his usage with the Los Angeles Lakers in MIR's, exactly what it was in Cleveland
Nuggets lose ugly, last-second heartbreaker to the Grizzlies 89-87
"Denver Nuggets. Oh, yeah. They lost to the grizzlies last night. No. Oh, yeah. They're their second loss of the season score was eighty nine. Eighty oughta throwback score to three thousand four the last second shot. I wanted to talk about this. This is his only shot of the game. He came in averaging seventeen ten eight on eleven shots quote. He's not shooting the ball. We have to figure out. Why quote, that's coach Mike Malone. Woody. What is this just a weird anomaly or does he need to get more rest of like mom Murray? His says. That's the only person. Here watched every minute of the game, including all of you. And every viewer. I can tell you exactly what happened. He's a triple double way to happen. It wasn't anomaly because he was fine. Twenty five thousand dollars yesterday by the NBA office for remark he made about another player that was off color. So he didn't even know what he said to be honest. And also he's a pass. I kind of guy and Marcus all did a great job as a clapsed inside out. Yeah. But I mean, he learned his lesson. Let that acts like that fine wasn't for actual reason here. So all that being said it was a rough day at the office. You mentioned this before Tony the nuggets are nine into people. What are we complaining about? This team is still a very good Becker toll.

"Yeah. But you just what you need from him. Is you always need these energy guys on defense? Right. And a guy like that is Hungary who wants to stay in the league. I think there's just that right part of the equation here too. It's not like he's guaranteed anything by any stretch of the imagination. So having a guy like that on the roster. I think is important as you of try to mix and match what you're. Doing but this Denver team. Look, I think the thing I've been most surprised about I know we talked about Yokich kitchen kind of his issues on the defensive end. But this Denver team has been again limited sample size for you know, they've been the best defensive team in the league by a really decent margin. The Spar, and they're making up for those deficiencies that Yokich may have on that end because the other guys are playing out of their mind something that. Maybe I'm a little surprised because of the personnel home. But because of but not as prize because Mike Malone is a guy who hangs his hat in a lot of ways. I love that you say that I play for Mike Malone and Mike is one of the more disciplined coaches in the league. He's no nonsense. And he's very thorough in one thing that's really helping out their defense is their offense. What do you mean? Their offense helps their defense will penetrate and kick they'll get in the whole they'll run their offense. They will remain patient vague, take George what you give them in a team that makes you work on the offense of instead of jacking up. Quick shots is gonna more times than not have a better defense. And it's really paying dividends you see Jamal Murray. Gary hairs these guys are couple years into the league. They are no longer necessarily young players. They're turning into veterans in. You're really seeing it start to pay off played aginst Jamal Murray in the Pan American Games when he. Offer canada. They kind of beat us. He made headlines went to Kentucky. And so the story had begun. But once that Jamal markets comfortable, man, he he's he's one of the I don't wanna say great. But he's one of the better players in our league. And he can play pound for pound anybody. He's big he's strong. He can shoot it. And now he looks comfortable on an NBA floor, George. Yeah. No doubt about it. It'll be a real test for the Lakers, actually like the Lakers their two and a half point dog tonight at Staples. I actually think they can pull this thing out. Because look it's the NBA man, you're not gonna win every damn game. And I think that as ridiculous the sounds. I think the Lakers can build off of what they did a little yesterday. Unlike with Dave said, and I think that the nuggets are kinda do you're just not going to get winning every game in the NBA. We'll switch gears..

"Doesn't happen, if you look up in mid-january and they're in tenth place or eleventh place, I think it's pretty easy to see where the front office will go with Malone Doc. Rivers is one who he probably should have been in the Tyler category of guy who might just leave on his own accord. I don't really see the clippers firing him, but I ate. He's really hard to read because I would have thought that he would have been fired or left like early last year and then he stuck around and was one of the best coaches in the league. Last Cup. Months of the season. So I don't have any idea where that's going over the next year. So yeah, I think that's touch and go, you know, if they turn into another scrappy team like last year overachieved a little bit, give their fans reason to show up than you know, he probably decides he wants to stay. I mean, to me, he is probably one of those guys who's got his I, you know, looking elsewhere like waiting for premier jobs to open up, and I think most of the contender type positions haven't really changed. And so there's not a better opportunity out there for him than the clippers. I think if they wind up, you know, showing the effects of so much Ross return over here in the last two years and they easily could. I mean, I think the clippers are one of those teams that could easily be a lot worse than we expect that could be a situation where just makes sense for them to bring a new voice as well because he's been there for an awful long time going back real quick to Mike Malone. I've been digging a lot to the numbers. The numbers really, really liked the nuggets coming into this season even more than usual. They're kind of one of those teams that sometimes it doesn't quite work out as well in practice as you expect in theory, but like the advanced numbers love Yokich. Obviously, the pairing with Yokich Millsap last year was a big time net positive. The lineup with will Barton at the starting three. And you know they're two guards. Plus those two bigs, I just mentioned performed very well in very limited minutes last year, and you can expect growth from both Murray and harass, you know, given their age, right. So a lot of the projection systems are very high on the nuggets. I, I'm not sure that internally their expectations are as high even maybe as projections are. But to me, it could be one of those situations where we think coming into the season Malone is going to be a hot seat guy, and if they do deliver on sort of what the projections expect for them, he could wind up getting into that kosher that you're. Sation because people look around and say, well, he doesn't have a true star unless you count Yokich, which we probably should count them. But most people don't. And here's his team that's fighting for home court advantage in the west. I could see that being how Denver seasons play out. I guess long story short. I'm kinda with the advanced numbers. I think that they're going to be good enough this year to keep Malone off the hot seat. Okay. But you would agree that right now, he's one of three or five that really has to win. Well, look if he was playing in a real market actually carry about NBA basketball. I mean, no disrespect to nuggets. I realized that's disrespectful, but come on you guys know it's true if he was playing or if he was coaching in the New York or the Chicago or LA or wherever else missing the playoffs last year would have. Got him fired agree. Yeah, I want. And by the way, no disrespect, Denver because the the real nuggets fans that we hear from our very real Vassall fans. But I in DC we. Have a small community of people who actually care about the wizards, and then almost everybody doesn't really give shit. And so that's the way Denver is. That's the way a lot of markets are. It's no disrespect. And I really if the entire sports media market in Denver was keyed around the nuggets, like it is in some other markets he would have had to go because the pressure for, you know, getting down to the last game this season and not getting it done, plus the pressure of paying all that money for Millsap that just would have sort of cumulated..

"Do you think that playing in Denver, what everyone presumes will be bench role will be able to change things for him when he's rage. And again, next summer, he's such a coupla. Character because what makes him great is how rigid he hasn't, how he fights against the, you know the grain, but that also impedes him at times it's probably impeded his dealing with this injury because he is emitted. They didn't handle it well in Boston and they didn't handle it well in Cleveland. So are we? Well, we've handling it well in in Denver, what do you make it in handle on Boston? Well, he said he shouldn't have played in the playoffs, but I'm not sure that he felt that was his responsibility point is like he's a guy who says, I'll be back but don't call me a backup. I, I'll play hurt, but don't say that I'm that I'm playing, you know, I, it's just it's difficult for him to take a role other than being the outside because he's fought against it so much about the interview. And it seemed to be where they got to by the end of the conversation was that he's coming into Denver with a fresh mindset and the past is the past. I felt like he started his career with the Cavs with full of bitterness, but about the way things ended in Boston and that didn't help him in gender himself to that locker. It didn't help him use that positive energy and turn it into, you know, extra effort in terms of rehab or whatever. If he looks at it like this, the nuggets need me. I need the nuggets and guess what? Mike Malone is in on my side. I think there can be a positive result next July for him. I hope there is one of the coolest things ever seen the playoff head two years ago, but his his sixteen eight years. He's changed agents four times. He is a bit of a difficult personality, and that's part of the Thomas package. I think I'm Dave. I think I think this could be the right fit. And so might we talk about this all the time, right? The NBA is about fit eighty percent of the players but fit you are that's gonna make the difference top ten percent top bottom percent, not so much, but I would put Isaiah and that category. I think this is going to be a good fit for him. But again, we'll get to see it will play out. We'll find out coming up next on the jump..

"Enough and he's a big man so like you need a point guard if you're a big man and you need it like help from the backcourt and jamal murray has been playing a lot better but it just seems like that i've seen that team on a number of nights just kinda like not show up and it seems like there's something going on behind the scenes maybe like i i know last week mike malone had to have like 30minute meetings with various players just to like make sure everyone's on the same page so that's always a red flag and it's probably not on yokich and like it there is not really reason for concern and it's also heard a judge them without paul millsap but i definitely think everybody was excited to like watch them make a leap this year and yokich was like a fringe top20 player and i i think like if you were to put him in next year's sl top one hundred or whatever i would probably say he is like in the mid thirty's now because of just there's too much that he hasn't really proved i'm not sure i would drop him that far just because he is still so young and so you're going to expect like a really good wrap up there but you're what you're saying makes a lot of sense it's it's more like who else is going to fall behind him because of age you know i think he is going to continue to be relatively more important here over the next couple of seasons in the overall league despite the concerns at you know you're raising now one thing i do want to say in favor of denver 'cause i did just kind of ripped him to shreds it was hilarious to me that right in the middle of this whole like lillard allstar push is going to get snubbed i don't want to be snubbed campaign they go to denver and jamal berry drops 38 points that was insularity is to a what a great closing push for the voters and obviously it did a matter but off the bench that night your moody a had one point so he in in murray combined for thirty nine a look real great in the big home went by the way denver is the one team that would be so fun to watch.

"Well i mean i i definitely no one team that i'm going to put in the playoffs i wasn't in the playoffs lashed out but not there's too i had to my own question go at eight a get them seven i got nuggets correct yeah i think they make that that jump and again they're locked into this core for the next 20 years they a seven season games a decent request yeah i think to to ask for more than that would and in the west is and we still i completely share of their defense even though they did add millsap who's a strong defender the burn gary harris back strong defender at wessels need to see it and like as drawl murray going around the point is going to be the six men is moody a going to take a step or is he gonna follow the rotation entirely this for as much as people like they're young talent they solve a lot to figure out i do and i i like mike malone yogi i think they will it'll just it just looks like a seven seed this year are fine yeah i mean they were under five hundred last year they should be thrilled the seven said oh they will be they will be sex i got our wolves that's worth i wanna say and i are the again i think this is the last year that they probably won't have court for a decade i think i think seeks who was right okay i have the clippers because his even us as high on them as i am and as much as i like what they did this still coach by doc rivers who has risen in his coaching a lot of players he hasn't like will fully like they didn't play in the eastern conference five years ago so it's gonna be it's gonna be a huge adjustment for him it's going to be interesting to say and take train wheels are antle i think a lot of their success depends on blake's health as opposed to like.
