Paul Millsap Agrees to Deal With Brooklyn Nets
"The brooklyn nets just signed paul millsap which is actually a really good signing and up for them but now they are also the front runners to sign lamarcus aldridge. Who is coming out of retirement if you remember aldridge retired just a few games into his nets time over the last season. Is this a big deal or no deal. This is a no deal. I don't mean to be critical. But when i saw that headline run across the bottom the paul millsap. There was a reasonable reasonable amount of. He's still in the league question marks that came up for me and under this kind of hard to say so. If you're going back to guys who were literally not in the league as well lamarcus aldridge. I mean i just don't see these being impact. Pickups i mean good for them forgetting contracts but it's not. It's not moving the needle for me in the nba circle.

"And then they're going to turn to the kings and try to get somebody in a trade. But in the meantime, he's always getting loud. Now he's talking all about all about Tristan Thompson and the other big. Yeah, I mean, in the meantime, though, they're in a minute's crunch. So they can't keep all these guys happy 'cause it's not feasible in the NBA to run out a lineup of 5 centers. You can't do. It did not look all that great. Bulbul and shooting guard alongside Troy Daniels point guard was not the way to go. So yeah, it just got something's going to have to give their venture. I didn't really fully grasp why they guaranteed Damien Jones contract when they did, so but they didn't. And whatever it is, it's done. Speaking of guarantee contract guarantees, Jalen McDaniels, little hornets becomes fully guaranteed today that'll happen. He's shown enough there for them to fully guarantee Terrence Mann and the clippers they did that early. So that's our already been done. Jabari Parker got a hundred K guaranteed yesterday. There was a little bit of a watch because he's somebody that looked like the Celtics might have moved on from him before he triggered any comment guarantee. And then a couple at the end of the week Alice Johnson from the nets, hundred K guarantee, triggers on Friday and Anthony tall of our of the 76ers comes really guaranteed. I'm gonna guess Anthony to all of her is gateway by TMI. I don't think he's gonna make it to that date. That is my guess. They're just Philly's Phillies over the tax and that'll give them a little more wiggle room if they move, move on from toliver. But yeah, so those are just some things to keep an eye on here. It's a lot of teams filling out their camp rosters now over the next few weeks. That's what will happen. So we'll start to see a bunch of guys when you and I tweet about them. We'll get the who, responses. But these guys are guys who are going to go to camp. And most of these deals will be designed around trying to get guys to the G league. Right, yeah. And that's what we're going to see happen with a lot of the moves that take place in the next few weeks here. So I think that about wraps everything up. When we went through a lot, had a puppy appearance and pretty soon we're going to start our team breakdowns as well. Yeah, yeah, reviews previews. We don't know what we call them, but they're both. So we'll start in on those too. And then we've got a lot of cool stuff planned for you guys. Going right up to the season. We're going to continue to go in season as well. Trevor and I are working with some of our partners to brainstorm ideas and all sorts of fun stuff. But if you guys, if there's things you really want to know about or see us do and those kinds of things drop it in the comments because we do check those out. We are happy to steal your idea and give you all the credit that you deserve on the show if you are the one who kicks us an idea that we have not already thought of. We're happy to give you a shout out on the show. That's the extent of what you're getting. Out of us. Maybe someday we'll have a front office goodie bags and swag..

"It's a little bit. It's a little late in this kind of transaction period. And I'm not sure what teams are going to be interested at this stage. A lot of guys that, you know, a lot of guys are locked up at this point because they can't be traded until December 15th. So that's going to limit your options. But the report also suggested that, look, Jeremy lamb he had a lot of injury issues last season. So a lot of teams are saying, well, we're interested, but we want to wait and see if he's healthy for. So maybe this is a guy just to keep an eye on and we'll see him moved midseason. Yeah, he got back about Blake January. He came back, so when he came back from that injury, with the pacers after in 2020, he tore his ACL. So about a year later, which that's roughly the going time frame for an ACL injury. And yeah, he was a little rough last year. So we'll see where he looks better this year. My guess is this is when we talk about this a lot. Who does this benefit to put this out there? And I think this is one that benefits both the pacers and Jeremy lamb because it starts saying like, hey, there's teams who want them. I think the article which was by J Michael of the Indy star who has proven to be pretty well connected to the pacers and their players. He said the Lakers had reached out, makes sense, right? Now was that the Lakers reached out and the end of July when they had built their bench. Yeah, or was that recent? Because it also he makes $10.5 million. How do the leakers get there? That's a little odd. But he also mentioned Charlotte hornets where lamb had played previous. They could actually maybe use another wing. Score, they don't have a lot of guys in that role where the pacers do. I mean, you mentioned levert and Chris duarte, but they signed toward Craig. They still have Justin holiday on that team. TJ Warren still plays quite a bit at the three for them. So that's a team that's they've got an awful lot of guys who play that same position. So that says to me, I bet lamb gets run early in the year as a duarte is transitioning into the NBA and lamb is showcased for a move down the line. That's my guess is how that one plays out. So he's going to be kind of the training wheels or whatever for Chris duarte to come in and he missed him. You missed it. You could have done with he's gonna be the sacrificial lamb for Christopher today. Oh man. I've got Keith. I have too much football on my brain. I was trying to get to Andy Dalton and Justin Fields somehow. I was trying to make that connection and then oh man. I went for the easy one man. I'm too tired after putting puppy duty and being up all night with this guy every few hours to make long ones. I went for the simple one. That one was definitely better. And it was sitting right in front of me like I said, I have too much fantasy football on the brain. I love it..

"And you mentioned they didn't have a front of the bench block ball. So it's hard to go from being a player to a coach in the same locker. It's very hard. Because instant we talked about this with you, Donna's has a mom, one other episode. The relationship just changes immediately. You're not you're not in the locker room with them like that anymore. You're not, hey, no, you're not doing the dinners, you're not doing that stuff anymore. So it's just very different. And that becomes a little bit awkward. So yeah, I think for him to go with a guy. He's familiar with Jason Kidd to a team where I think he can really help out guys like Luca, even porzingis and those kind of guys. I think he's got just a perspective. He can kind of give because I think what Jared Dudley to what gets missed is he at one point looked like he was done in the NBA, early in his career, and then he caught on with the suns. And rebuilt his body, got himself in a really good shape. And then it looked like, again, a few years later, like he was going to be done. And then he turned into this guy that everybody wanted to sign to be on their bench at the end of the year. So and I get it from the Lakers perspective. I think if they had more definite depth that they knew 100% was going to be fine, you can give him your 14th or 15th roster spot. I think they need to look at guys who just you need to be certain they can play 50, 60 games if you need them to. And I'm not sure sold that that's Dudley at this point in his career. But like you said, he's been looking to make this transition for a while. So this is great. And I bet he is either going to be a head coach within four or 5 years, or he's going to transition to running someone's moving his way up the front office ladder. He has him on that side. He's talked about how he either wanted to be in the coaching tree and wanted to go that route. Or he owns someone to keep his option open to be a GM. If he can hear our little guy, I didn't hear a little guy Tatum, is he he's letting his presence be known here? My wife just got home and he's one of the other ones started. So he's like, oh, we're barking. I'm gonna do that too. So he's a very deadly coaching. Whatever the big dogs do, he wants to do too. So he's letting him fly. But yeah. Let's go to. I guess there was a little bit of a trade rumor coming on here. Jeremy lamb, potentially on the move. Yeah, the Indiana Pacers. $10.5 million expiring contract that's coming season. They brought in Chris duarte. They already have Karis levert in there. So question in terms of how many minutes are really there in pawnee to give to give him so it makes a lot of sense. I always have to. I have to. I love that show too much to not reference that. That's so good. But yeah, I mean, look, it makes sense for them to move him..

Atlanta Hawks reportedly agree to contract with Danilo Gallinari
"Well when you look at the hawks signing danilo gallinari who at some point people thought was going to be. The biggest name moved as a free agent for three years in sixty one point. Five million dollars twenty million dollars a year for a guy who's thirty plus now. It looks like a lot on paper. I guess because gallinari has been around for a long time. And you know. Technically past his brian. But he's a very very solid guy. And i likened it to paul millsap being signed by the nuggets a few years ago getting a vet while you have lots and lots and lots of capitalism and crippling yourself too long in the future. I think it'll be totally fine on their books trash. Thanks very good at that with the hawks. Oh three years twenty her effort danilo gallinari.

John collins also four Anita they just draft five. They have clean cappella the five. That's a lot of bodies for sure. But i think just like the wolves. Everybody's on the table you know. They have contracts at every range. I think that's sort of why the wolves beasley to that number. They've got contracts that they can throw in as an asset as a dollar value. Whenever and so. The hawks are ready to deal. I don't think gallinari. Like paul millsap in denver is a part of the championship.

We've gotta get in this guy's on the Kahane's factor starting five this year forty points in a game seven. So yes. Absolutely, give the nuggets credit and we've got time to talk nice about the nuggets. But what we need to do right now is pile on the most arrogant bunch of guys. The most Arab arrogant franchises never sniffed a frigging conference finals and hey, props to the Portland Trailblazers back court for completely unloading their troll game.

Millsap helps Nuggets rally, stun Clippers 111-105 in Game 5
"The nuggets staying alive staying alive mill sap helps the nuggets rally to stun the clippers. That's fair to say one eleven one. Oh, five in game five.

In the first half and then Marcus Morris Wench. Chin with him you never go Chinda Chin. Forehead. Only, he went Chinda Chin and that set Paul millsap off fourteen points in the third quarter. Basically brought the nuggets back into the game they got into an incredible rhythm and then eventually the clippers just couldn't stop him. They stayed hot until the fourth quarter and it was all because Paul millsap like he's beefed with the Morris brother before I don't really know which one it was I think it was marquee, but I am not a guarantee. He has history with the family. Let's say that and it happened again tonight and somehow it cost the clippers the game pissing off Paul? You don't do it in down in the bubble.

"Premium gasoline legs that nuggets get a wired of wire victory in Game number two. Is this. Siri's tied at one simply because the Nuggets were arrested. Or was there something more that a couple of nights ago? You're listening to W N. V p Chicago Jamal Murray especially looks completely get that started. Game one, and I compared it to it. Jenga Tower. You know, when that first block got told about four minutes into the second quarter, it was over. They looked exhausted. And so that played into it. Don't get me wrong. It's also you know, there's a team again. You get smacked around you're going to go to you could appeal to your pride that that helped. But I also think the other thing was. I just thought Nikolay. Okay? Just put a stamp on the game. If you want to look at something that they have to differentiate them. From every other team. The Clippers could play. It's Jochen. Nobody's got a guy that could beat you in the post control the game with his dribble. Run your offense through at the top of the key. I just thought he was much more impactful. You noticed him a lot more. They were able to get the game to a pace off their liking. And so that played into it as well. Now see what the Clippers do to prepare for him. First time I've ever heard Jenga being referenced in an MBA game, and it works out Tim Legler joining a star deviate countdown nuggets in the Clippers coming up just after the top of the hour. Does. Michael Porter Jr is here reliable third option for Denver outside of Murray in Yokich, or is it someone else? They're gonna have to look to know he's not there yet. I look, I think he's gonna have a great career. He's going to be a big time score in this league, and I think he'll be there full time starter next year. Instead of Paul Millsap, But he's not there yet. Okay, look, He really looks almost deer in the headlights in the first game got into him, and he's such a baby faced player anyway. Like he looked like it was a little bit too much for him. That team hit you. They talk to the entire time. You know, the Clippers are on a different level when it comes to that, and I thought it affected him. He looks much more comfortable in game too, but he's not ready to where you say Okay, we need 15 to 20 out of you every night as the third guy to compete with this team. He's not serious so instead It's just got to be by committee if he gives them 11, and they can get you 10 11 from Jeremy Grant. They can get something for Tory Craig Monte Morris. Like Collectively, they've gotta have a third guy. Because I don't think he's quite ready for that moment yet. He's so young and he's got a bright future, but this is an awful lot. He's gotta get stronger. I think in order to be more reliable as that guy that could do it in a playoff series against team like the Clippers, ESPN MBA analyst Tim Legler joining us here in MBA Countdown serious.

"Of the things that Denver is really good at is, is getting free is getting is being smart, and picking up free players. You know, they got Michael, porter jR in the draft last year because they, they were willing to take a chance on. They ended up with ball ball this year because we won't take a chance. But if they opt if they if they use that. That they exercise Paul Millsap Millsap option kind of takes him out of using all that, how do you view? What do you think the Denver is going to do? They're I mean, obviously, they could let them become a free agent and they could negotiate a multi year deal where he makes less than thirty million, but then you let them be on the open undistracted market, and there could be some teams in in the market for him. Yeah. I think including Paul Millsaps, not most recent former team. But one of his former teams Utah to me, that's one of a couple of players that, you know, if they get, I would be willing to waive Derrick favors who has that contract for a little more than seventeen million. That's non-guaranteed through I believe, July sixth but early enough or late enough basically that they will have a chance to see what's going to happen free agency before having to make a decision on whether to keep favors as a starting power forward or whether they can replace him is. I look at that decision from Utah's standpoint, I think that it's more likely that they pick up the option because even though the thirty million is clearly too much moaning for Paul Millsap at this stage of his career. I think it actually is better for their kind of long term financial picture to have him on the books for that avoid the luxury tax. If you're maybe not spend as much. But then next summer, you'll probably. Probably leave re-signing Millsap a year older. If you look to resign him, it'll be at a lower number and that fits in, I think better with their timeline because the other thing they have going on is Jamal Murray is up for an extension this summer or a new contract, as a restricted free agent, the following year from now and that's going to substantially increase their payroll because of the fact that he's been making relatively so little money for the last couple of years here, max or nothing. That's what I would say. If I was Jamal Murray's agent. Would you agree? Yeah. Maybe profanity there on the end of that. To the old Chandler Parsons for McMahon. Standing what, what was it? He was he was leaning out of the limo max or nothing. That part of it. I'm pretty sure that's what it was. Do you remember that? Andrew. Yeah, it was definitely a limo like outside of a nightclub.

Pelton Utah me, if you think I'm out of line here if I were present Pasco, Siaka Ben Simmons or a Jamal Murray. I'm saying to my team max or nothing Maxwell, scenic summer. Yeah.

Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic overwhelm the Trail Blazers
"Tuesday night that nuggets completely pummeled the blazers at home in Denver one twenty four and ninety eight of the big story coming out of that game was Paul Millsap after a pretty tepid series against the Spurs Millsap has been absolutely beast. Ing the blazers he's dominating, man. But he's pretty much scoring a will. Yeah. And I think a lot of it is just like he means so much to that defense that like is basically honed by a bunch of dudes who are younger than twenty six. They're all they're all born after the ninety s. Millsap is the only player born in the eighties on that team. It's really wild. He he's been a real strong stabilizing force for them. I think for the most part it's because Millsap has been on a me new has been on guys who haven't really who don't really possess a lot of you know, playmaking prowess on their own. So he's been able to kind of quarterback from the back line, and it's made a huge difference. I mean that's been the story for Denver is like they're really exposing. Which I mean, we knew it was gonna happen eventually, but Amini one heartless they're just not guarding those guys. They're playing off them. It's letting them hide Yokich yet Millsaps kind of in the middle quarterback in the whole team. You look at like I feel like I look at these two teams. I look at one team has spent the money on Paul Millsap when they had creating space and wants to put them line. Evan turner. And it's like one move like that as such an impact like when you're paying thirty dollars per event. Erin, you've got to have the right veteran it, of course, like it isn't fair to Portland because I don't think most was free that summer, right? No. There's so much luck that goes into it so much chance that goes in the team building. But it's made all the difference in the world. Yeah. The other thing too. I remember size of the I did a big store in Yokich at training him. I remember talking to Millsap about it. And to see him talking about how he recognized that Yokich was so talented, how encouraged Yokich to take up Ford Nicotrol the team how I took a step back and sort of focusing on defense to complement this young star. And this is right. When the whole like Jane bar thing happened in Minnesota. And I was like man, this is what like a great veteran. Does right. Like, I had the ability to change my game to encourage younger players to empower them. I feel like a Millsap to me like what he's done on. And off the court. It's just been really it's a really cool too cool to see a guy like recognize his limitations and kind of make his team better 'cause he could've easily pull Jimmy Butler feed one to and been like, I'm Paul Millsap. I'm making three dollars a year. This is my team complement me. And like you're saying we can do it and get the ball on his hands. He can allot, but he's like chose and take a step back. And now when his time. He can pop in. And I haven't go to conference final Jimmy's out here. You know, fight when players all the time. I mean, it's really amazing that like him and Al Horford or just kind of cut from the same cloth. They shared the front court for so many years and in Atlanta, Atlanta's just like, I can't believe those two players coexisted at the same time. And I can't believe the hawks couldn't do much with that. I mean, they just got burning into LeBron. That was that was always there thing. It was really it was a fun team. It was like a hipsters paradise team, man. And then they may Jeff Teagle a lot of money they make calc over a lot of money. I mean, they made the Mari Carol out of money. Look back on a now like Teague. Caroline, Korver such limited players, but in Atlanta, played with Millsap and Horford, they looked freaking awesome. That one year. They're all stars.
"paul millsap" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"Here's a staff for you. I looked it up on our little fancy second spectrum points per post up in this series. Paul Millsap one point two three points per post up to put. It's crazy. The best the best offense in the entire league. Is about one point one five. So Paul Millsap is out doing that just on post ups, and he's just he had a couple of plays last night. Or he looked like Draymond green on defense don't dream on. It's been doing that thing to Houston where he gets into one onto situation, and it's hardened and cappella and he's in between and somehow he's the predator. And they're the pray, and he deflects the lob path Millsap had a couple of those exact kind of plays last night, including one where he just took two giant hands and took the ball from somebody. He said any incredible series. He really has an and give Mike Malone credit to Zach because he just determined very early in the series. I think this is the first time where we can really start saying boy, they really miss Nurkic because up to this point they've done such a wonderful job of hiding that that, you know, very big loss for them. But Mike Malone made up his mind. Like, all right. Yeah. We're we're going to of course, we're always going to have Yokich Murray. But we're going we're going to pose Millsaps deep, and we're going to post them over and over and over again. And the thing I like about this Denver team is you know, when you're running that pick and roll with Marian. And and you'll catch it takes up space. Right. It takes you know, what you have to give them space and the way these guys the rest of the guys on the team have again instincts in Millsaps, really good at this to is just knowing when all right? I got a clear out. I got up flattening out down below to clear out. I give these guys a ton of credit because they're spacing with with with Millsap and the post whenever whatever action they're running three. It's really something else. I future the NBA. This is this is the way the NBA is going to be played going forward. I'm glad you brought up Nurkic because I do feel like that's kind of gotten. They beat Oklahoma City fairly easily in short order. I mean, not easily maybe in terms of margin, but they beat them and drive and they're up three two in this series. I'm sorry, Portland. Beat Oklahoma City. Yeah. Portland down three two in this series. They they're good team without Norwich. I just I'm like Denver is heading night Denver if they make the conference finals, there will be a whole barrage of this is the next great team in the Western Conference. And I think there are a very good team. I've been high on Denver all year. I predicted they would beat the Spurs. I would thought they would get home court. Like, this is not to be hateful about Denver. I kind of feel like I'm I wanna preemptively not get carried away because they manipulated the brackets to get all of these matchups. And they did it successfully good for them. They barely beat the Spurs. And I mean as barely as you can barely beat them in the Spurs are not very good, and they are squeaking out this series until last night. Now, they go to Portland and win and six that's a great win. There's. Leaking out this series over a team that I think is finally starting to show some signs, and in particular Lillard of were kind of down a big big piece, and that's not saying anything from Denver. You can only beat who's in front of you. I just think it kind of reminds me of Toronto the year they made the conference finals where they barely beat the Pacers and seven, and then they beat the heat in seven all wear a conference final CMO hind of you know, what I mean? Right. But this is what I would say to counter that. And they have a decision to make as you know, Zach Millsaps on the books next year for thirty million dollars thirty million. So a lot of million it is, and it's pretty sure it's a club option..

So underneath Moore's looks in those into Paul Millsap. He goes baseline got bumped and fouled and go to the free throw line. The third foul in the game. So four for four months and Denver's I venture to the free throw line. Millsaps? We'll get a couple of them here game to yet. Fourteen points, six fourteen shooting with eleven rebounds, free throw number one form is off the front of the rim. No good. That was his first double double this postseason. Twenty third double double form in his ninety six career playoff games. Second free throw. No. Read on down to Evan Turner Turner has it up the right side line. Got it out there by Paul Millsap goes to the left hand at the dotted line jump shot. His off the back. No good. Rebound comes down to mill set. Mill south has it up the right side.

Stutter step at a drive on Beasley behind the back pass over the Turner Turner top at Akita hood in the corner. Three pointer good enough the wrong guy. Hurry of one thing. Well, that's the corner of correct. Nine point lead for Portland their big lead of the night. Monte more stirs the corner teardrop that one's go. This group dislike last game really struggled to make any shots at all nuggets less than thirty one percent shooting. CJ step back three that would miss rebound down. Zach call really lost it out of bound. Hobos getting to the point. It's early in his game. But will you bring the second unit? You gotta keep starters with your right? Monte Moore's has a top of the key over will. Bart. And he gets picked. That's the free throw line jump past to Mason Plumlee as it stripped out on his hands in foul of lead on CJ. While hill sat down and the guys trying to calm them down a little bit. Nusa put Mason Plumlee to the free throw line. And they'll get a couple of game two six points, five rebounds.

"And interestingly it's on NBA TV, which is where we tend to put the games we don't care about. And yet it's perhaps the only series that we're not sure how it's going to end. That's the Spurs and the nuggets. The the interesting stat to me games a series is a seven game series. The Spurs have won thirteen times when it's tied to two the nuggets. Oh and three that of course, previous iterations. But it says something I think about strategy and about coach pop and about experience where are you leaning on where the series is going, and do you think either of these teams that escapes is going to have something to say about the next round? I just think two seats should not be having this much trouble with the seven seed, Tim Dunkin's, not on his team, manage nobly. Tony parker. Do no longer play. This is not your granddaddy San Antonio team there seven seat and San Antonio. Yes. We know how great they are at home. But they're quite a second year player should not be this great of a player. Now, he came back down to earth in the last game in this series. And that was ultimately the difference has Denver turned a corner in this series. Maybe but as I look at it it's a team that is as a soft permanent defense. They don't shoot the three point shot, particularly. Well, I'm watching. Is like wool bar wool, Bart and try to shoot themselves out of his slump, which hurts this team more and more as you progress through the series and to be quite Frank. They're not built for this territory this charter territory, this is rare air for this bunch outside of Paul Millsap and Plumbly these this team is not have a lot of experience playing in this type of game in this type of series with this type of pressure on them as a two seat. And I just don't believe as I did coming into this series. The Denver was truly going to be a factor out of the west. There are two seats there. Do they feel like to see the, you know, they don't feel as dominant as a two seed would. But it's hard to just ignore the success. They had during the regular season. I think absolutely lack of experience matters both at the coach position and for the team, especially up against a guy like pop and Burston that may not be your grandfather's but still plays fundamental ball and everybody buys into what pops says, I do think there's difference. You mentioned we'll Barton. He's been struggling. They're going to bring him off the bench. Mike Malone put Tori, Craig in the starting lineup plans to do. So again and Craig did a much better job defending tomorrow's and got him super frustrated, and Gary Harris was out there. Hounding Derek white. And it was a good strategy. If they come back with that. And they find the same success that might be something that they unlock in terms of being able to go forward in whatever the next round is and having a bit more security in the in the game plan because I think whatever they did during the regular season got them trading back and forth with the warriors for the best record in the west. And maybe just this first series as enough experience to get them back on track in the way, we saw throughout the regular season when they advanced I'm not as out on both teams as you are. But you seem to think whoever goes on ain't gonna do much. Yeah. If they're not factor. What I have been really impressed with is again. The resurgence of Gary Harrison this league a guy that was forgotten about and had a great regular season. But also in this postseason him as a defender being a guy who. Who's been able to to defend and be problematic against the derozen has been problematic defending the improbable star of Derek quite the second year player for the Spurs east had an impact there. But as I look at Denver, and I say, okay, how can you limit this team offensively?.

But an interesting gamble by the Spurs going against the nuggets shot the ball really efficiently in the first half thinking, maybe they're not gonna shoot it that way the second. They haven't been shooting three ball. Very, well, let's maybe give them that. I work. Let's make them drool a little bit. Take those open looks.

See I think I saw recently where I guess he told Trudell or someone recently that he felt like being aggressive meant he had to score interesting, which I don't feel like that's the only thing you can do to be aggressive. No, certainly not what the coaching staff a bit a bit of a mixed message there at least according to him. And then. When you know, he finally starts to kinda get a group going LeBron there, and then they'll LeBron goes out. And now it's like, oh, hey, be the guy again. So it's just gotta gotta be a weird season for. I think the Lakers are trying to see. Now, do they have a guy who can lead their team when LeBron is out or when LeBron is perhaps as he takes a step back as father time catches up them. So that's part of the equation. And then yeah, ideally than they had to see who actually fits with LeBron and Brandon Ingram has not give them as much evidence. Because of that suspension you got the rock game because of the ankle injury. So if you really only played with the Brown like fifteen games. Yeah. How can you really judge? What can be with run after fifteen games emphasis? No, it's ridiculous. And it show. It also is kind of the same thing. I think of with Luke right because I had the thing. The other day him Zach Lowe on their show where look he said stuff that we all kind of know already, right? Like he's going to be judged on a year to year basis at this point magic, even basically said as much after the whole admonishment right that he's safe for this year. So I almost feel like he's in a weird spot being judged on with results for a team that doesn't have the best player on the planet. And it's even worse than the team. He had last year because it doesn't have Julius Randle on it. So it's like, how do you judge? What you're seeing here if you're magic, and rob I mean, if you think that they're going to use logic and ration rational thought than than they take into all other factors into account. I'm not so sure they are like one I mean again in any business. They didn't hire the guy. So if they have someone else in mind, ultimately that other person will get the job stuff that won't shut. And look, clearly, I don't doubt. It is. What I'm saying? Is, you know, so I believe that this is Magic's rationale, but this notion that magic wants a Pat Riley type figure that out there any might. And guess what? Like teams don't even practice like it's not just Lakers don't practice? Nobody does. Nobody prices. So I mean, that's this asking for the entire league into a time warp, right?.
