Author Ruth Graham Explains How God Can Transform Your Loneliness in Her New Book
"Can be transformed and that's very positive. God can transform it into his purposes so that we deepen our relationship with him and with others and have more satisfying relationships with him and with others. It's interesting because i think it's obvious you know. In this conversation that the lord created us to be with other people maybe not constantly but but there is something undeniable. We're not machines for some reason we long for fellowship with other people and then of course you can get too much of it and you want some solitude to recalibrate as you put it into to think but it's interesting that god made us for that and we don't get that something happens. I'm not sure what happens but clearly. That's when people feel lonely it's a pang but you're saying in the book transforming loneliness that because god is a person he's not an energy force we can have fellowship with him when we're otherwise alone Talk about that. Well you're you're so right. God made us for community and he said it is not good for man to be alone. I mean he said that Genesis right up front and he he himself is in community with the triune god with the followed some in the holy spirit. He's in community and he made us for community and it's important for us to attach ourselves to some sort of a community that feeds our spirit. And for me that's church that's made home group and meeting with people that i can fellowship with on a deeper level. Well it's interesting. Because i think that you know if you really know the lord you're never alone but there are a lot of people that they might say. I'm a christian. But they don't have that kind of relationship or maybe it feels awkward to them. What do you say to those folks. Develop it work on developing it. Because he is right there he he knows the scripture says he makes a home for the lonely. He knows how they feel. David talked about being feeling like a pelican in the wilderness. David understood what loneliness was dot understands. And certainly no one was more alone than jesus on the cross so they know loneliness is and we can go to god and tell him how would we need to express our long this to him and he will fill us with his

Don't want him to be here as as a businessman for his from his dad point of view. I understand why that would seem like that. Will make sense but ex chris paul i worked up. Got a point. I mean it don't work for everybody Anthony davis walked out of here in the best scenario. Ever you wanted to ring to no not even that he will. He will were employed with the best negative elite absolute on best mentally on the well. He made the best teams in the league by him going. But yeah i mean lonzo to somewhere else right away. It's going to be the same case. He's not even in the same stratospheric even try to do that yet. His game is not jumped up to that superstar even all star level yet. In my opinion his three point shooting is top notch. Now thirty nine percent. Yeah readily so. Yeah and and i told you overfull vincent. The shooting coach for the pelicans has improved his shot every single year. Since he's been here that do great coaching. Three point shooting He has improved. Probably shooting says he got to this gotten to the team has down merited. Meli have well. We'll we'll see about metal but merited fell off with his reports. You know that he loves and others to now.

If if and i know you'll probably don't wanna see them go but if you were to would y'all what would you rather go regardless of the office. Someone is first and foremost.

Go to miami if he could find a way to make it to miami and linka with jimmy mullahs in a inbound. A nice mix right. Yeah that's that's that's you based on you like they based like the money would probably you have to give up. Somebody probably had to give up a hero or something bad. He christmas geis's dress up.

Redick: Pels, Griffin didn't honor word with trade
"Jj redick longtime veteran fifteen years in the leak. Good player not great good. Though he requested a trade from new orleans pelicans in november and asked them to send them somewhere one he was up. You know not upset but hey drew's gone through holiday. That was a big part of why i came here. And you know. I would like to be close to my family in brooklyn close enough where i can go see him on off days things like that. They told him. Bet you got it. And of course they trade him to dallas so he's upset because he says they didn't keep their word. Here's jj reading on his own podcast. My understanding all along was that. I was going to get a buy out. And if i was going to be traded it was going to be to a team in the northeast where i was closer to home and i'd be able to see my family for the last two or three months of the season obvious that didn't happen. I don't think you're gonna get honesty from that front office. Just objectively speaking. I don't that's not an opinion. i just don't think you're going to get that. But i think i was a little naive in thinking that because i was in year fifteen and you know i had at least attempt to do things right throughout my career and i honored my end of the bargain but in terms of this front office. Yeah i mean. It's it's not something where i would expect. Certainly the agents that that worked on this with me to ever to ever trust that front office again.
Was This Marcus Smart's Worst Game for the Celtics?
"Not worried about -fornia he didn't look too involved and then again the ball time it was smart smart was absolutely horrific is bad as you can be is one of his worst games ever and you saw after he pulled the half court heave. The team just imploded. I mean everybody was like what was that. And then all of a sudden there watching zion. five them ingram's into the free throw line twelve times well and their defense just reached a new Wasn't great start the game but after that it just completely opened up because i think the whole team was which has happened and then they were down by thirteen. I swear to be contrarian. Bobby because i was i thought smart was brutal law game however that comeback in large part had to do with putting him on zion And that made a big difference because nobody else was able to keep cy on in front of him. Whatever they tried and then smart got that you know got the offensive. Foul got a couple of things rolling and made it harder for him. We had the work that matchup that that that paid off so he he definitely tone for it a little bit late. But you're right. it was someone else. Tweeted that to after that. Weird half court heave. It was just you know it was a weird mark. Your shrimp
"pelicans" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"They're not going to have that many chances to go out and find another tht so they need to hold on to him. Unless they I mean unless they get a star in return. Yeah. I'm in the same boat. I am very firm. Don't trade tht unless they offer is good enough to Warrant it the Lakers pipeline assets is nearly zero. I know they have a couple of pics swaps with the Pelicans but they're out a couple of first-rounders for the foreseeable future. Then they've got a couple seconds which don't always necessarily pan out. So if you've got talent to play a game HD who is only twenty and you know, I think the ceiling program is pretty damn High. You just have to keep let him go through his lungs. I know tonight. He was not very good and those are very frustrated with him. But again twenty year old playing without LeBron and KD is not going to look super great. If you've watched the previous Lakers teams without LeBron, this is exactly what we were watching for a long time. So I I know that this is going to take some time with him. This is just kind of the product of not having your two superstars. So yeah, I don't trade issue just to trade in if you're going to trade if it's going to be aggregated with another salary, but again, whatever move that looks like, I don't know what is right now, but it needs to be pretty damn good if you're going to move those two pieces or whatever pieces you want. So Hey, you guys want to hear Silver Lining here to all of this? You know sure you talking about the the draft Capital that the Lakers don't have I'll tell you one year. They do have draft Capital this year off. They have their draft pick this year. Right unless it falls one through eight. If it's one through eight, it goes to the Pelicans. It's not going to fall 1 through 8, right even if they go on this slide. It's not falling was a great. So they are going to have their draft pick this year. So losing games right now will improve their draft pick. I feel like we're we jump back in time four years ago, but these games that they fall to say 6 next thing, you know, the Lakers who could go on to win an NBA championship, even if they slide could have a pic in the low 20s. I mean, they could have like the 21st pick or something like that. And what we know is a pretty strong drafted. So next thing, you know, the Lakers could even either find somebody in this draft coming up or use it as a tradeable asset after they make the selection just like they did last year at the at the trade well on draft So I think that's that's an interesting concept there that the Lakers could actually see their draft pick improve over the next couple of weeks perhaps without drastically decreasing their playoff odds. It's funny you bring that up. I actually tweeted that out during the game when they were getting blown out by Thirty. I tweeted out looks up 2021 NBA draft prospects because again I missed I I I think the slide wage. Yeah, I think the slides going to be is going to be real. I think there will be picking early twenties honestly, which again that's a much more attractive pick in the next couple of days, right if we're talking trades and if we're talking kcpt if you wanna double or you can't do it right now, you actually kind of data but, you know the draft if you know the Lakers repeat, let's say they have ammo to add another piece they could do it..

"Shoot the Kenny a little bit a little bit, but he certainly not going to drop the ball on a balance on it play an out-of-bounds play off. That was weird. I would like to kind of go through and figure out if we can see the evidence like, you know on the sidelines why he would have put Alexander Walker in there. If anything maybe it's like well, I'll get him some, you know, some good job of minutes to experience what could go wrong, you know, and you see Stan laugh right or he smiled after he drops the ball bounce like like, you know, it probably even that he knew were going to lose this game. Now. It's like, you know, what else can you do miss the free throws drop a ball out of bounds? And again, like I said if it hits him anywhere in the body besides that bony part of like his shoulder that doesn't go flying like it did suck. And and then you can catch the ball or it'll drop out of state and they'll get it get crazy stuff. Crazy crazy crazy. Yeah, young teams don't know how to win games or close. I think they've I think they've blown ten games. I think where they're leading by double-digits. Do you think that the management will be patient would save 20 or that could maybe plan to him getting axed he I I can't see in any, you know, unless the players and a mutiny. They're not going to get rid of them after one year. I don't think but you're right. I mean listen life, not only that but like in this game there was a 16-0 run they were blowing them out in the fourth quarter and the last like with five minutes to go whatever that was. So that was that's bad and you're right if you know, how may I assist you know, the coaching is supposed to help that right? He's supposed to be there to support that and and help them get through those moments and then also to show Improvement across the season on those things and if that doesn't happen it's going to be bad, but I can't see any, you know, I can't see them getting you know firing in the officers..

"I think after this year, I believe he is. Yes know anyone responds him off. Yeah. Yeah, and that's that's that's going to be his burden and maybe what we do it'll because we do in America as he has to go through purgatory and then gets a shot again, you know, and then the next year we'll see. I don't know. It's it's rough. I don't want to be sympathetic necessarily doing but but you know people make mistakes so we'll see what happens to him Coach Costco question. Yes, this is not all that far as alleged about. Let's change the subject. Do you think the Warrior system is outdated? Oh my goodness gracious. So now so the the triangle gets outdated and then Kirk I'm saying with like triangle Concepts now that's outdated. No, I don't think so. I mean what I watch what they do, I see so much of what everyone's running honestly the one thing that's kind of unique to them. Maybe is the low post splits if they like to run when they throw the ball in the low post and then you see correct. Curry and Klay like usually, you know, they'll split you know, the three-point line, you know, but that's good stuff. You know, when you have Shooters they can do that. Now, it doesn't make a lot of sense to run that with, you know wage no Uber a and you know, just go Anderson I suppose but you know, so I don't think so. I mean listen to what the concepts they run. I like motion movement organic choice, you know, make it make yourself hard to guard. I think it looks better when you have you know, more than one playmaker on the floor and they simply don't really have that. Yeah, I was going to say that I think name is bad because you have dudes who aren't even smart enough and shouldn't be in the NBA trying to run like curb does well like we shouldn't be in the NBA. Let's not go crazy here. But who do you think like they have dudes who are playing, I probably should not be playing tons of minutes. Like I think it's more of that like they don't have the IQ skill set to actually be involved in agar offense like home. Way more thing in the world and you can find in the corner. Mannion Jordan Poole knobs wonderful Market, bro. Yeah, very young and not in his office. Once again, they should be the NBA. They're just not they're not NBA ready yet. That's the skills. They should not be playing the minister playing right in Jordan pull in Utah was like Prime Jordan. Damn, you know. Yeah, it's it's frustrating when you have stepped Scurry out there. There's an expectation and there's a level of play that kind of happens just by him being out there, but you're right like Jordan Pool isn't quite ready, but he'll have a highlighter to they're like, whoa, there's something here. Um, you know, they they the same with like Manion isn't really ready and they're kind of throwing them out there. The the one major thing was probably surprising that it was it was such a bust to me watching him. Even when he did..
"pelicans" Discussed on BBALL BREAKDOWN Podcast
"So I think that's the biggest problem for me that I also see on the the Pelicans game. I agree. Now the other thing I was really frustrating was maybe two weeks ago. I was looking at some Advanced numbers for the Pelicans and it just just from a conceptual standpoint the idea of having a team with Lonzo ball and Zion Williamson. You would think that with those two guys that your main guys you'd want to really high Pace. Yeah and yet a while ago. They were like in the off-season Pace now when you look at like overall from the season and yeah, we'll see them when they get like smokes well, but now overall they're eighteen so they moved up and if you look at the last 10 games and by the way down might be listening. I don't know because you know stand and I we go way back now, they're eleventh in the last like 10 games. So there is something happening here where they have increased the pace and you know, they're only four and six the last ten games but that to me just conceptually it makes a lot more sense. So they need to get Lonzo in open court with that ball throwing those beautiful dimes and he does off. I wished the Pelicans could be bad enough to get Evan Mobley cuz as a center you could hopefully ship Steven Adams out of there but as a center down and also be perfect person to play next cuz I on cuz he's athletic enough. He can switch concur just about anybody who's a great green protector. So he doesn't makes a ton of sense them makes so much sense, but I don't know if they can be bad enough to get him. But he may Saint James wash and also makes total sense on the publican's what? Oh, man took, you know keeps up. Okay, David Robinson makes a lot of sense in the Pelicans. I mean, I don't know what else to get him over there. Yeah. I mean I hear you. I mean listen, I wonder if we if we've seen the best job and that's going to be it. He's just sort of you know, it's not a mobile enough, even though I like there are moments when I really like how he fits in with his team. But yeah sure certainly a young dog. Much more mobile person in which by the way they have in Jackson Hayes now he is the guy who I been hoping for in life out of college to slowly develop and he's getting some minutes. So he's kind of getting his feet wet a little bit more wage at twenty, but he's not the guy who's going to be ready to lead a team that's for from the conference in the West. Wow. Jaxson, Hayes quite a bit everybody who knew for me. I really like Jackson days..

"Is a major career that is a curb blind spot language a blind spot, but like every every human has their own personal biases and one thing we've learned about Steve Kerr is he he really is a hard time playing pong players who he feels or defensive liabilities, even if their offense would help him. He would rather he would rather go the other direction where he has a wing who's three point shot is, you know, a boom-or-bust and is shooting 30% but he can count on them defensively instead of someone like Mulder who is a excellent shooter. He's over 40% on the C's and he can you know, but page 263, you know, he he can't really guard that many players the best way to put it so that's kind of a you know, and and that's kind of the market the Warriors are going to be in because God Can defend and shoot at a high level or just not attainable for veteran minimums? I don't think they're attainable for like the mid-level exception. Like it's very hard to find high-level Shooters who are also really good Defenders, right? And so they're trying to get and like, you know, Nico mannion all of a sudden there's at least getting some minutes that the Wanamaker was getting I'm assuming pretty much one per one on those on the on the trade-off. I like what I see. I mean, you know, everyone wants to him as the next Steve Nash. I suppose writing that mold obviously need to shoot at all like that but i i t did hit a couple threes against the Lakers, I believe as far as watching or Jazz one of those games and it actually looked good like the Rhythm looked fine. He looked somewhat confident like I'm gonna take this and then shoot it in the knock it down. I wonder if that's the thing. I don't know. Yeah, his shots not broken, but this was kind of why he fell in the draft. He just he you know, so khong Basketball I think he played about twenty five games something like that before the season got shut down last year and he just could not hit a shot in conference play. So then he got the stigma a non-shooter and I think he's I think he's going to end up being a competent shooter from that position. But the player I really want to see them play at point guard is Jordan Poole has to be honest. I don't think he's he's a combo guard. He definitely he can create a shot and he's looking to create for himself more than for others. So I understand why occur doesn't like to play in the back yard because he's just his natural inclination off of pick-and-rolls to shoot.

"They don't have cows space. They're not going to go outside Kevin Durant again or anything like that. They kind of need to develop internally. So it's a choice of maybe maybe it's irrational. Maybe it's unfair to expect him develop at a faster Pace than that, but it's like fans want to see him play with Steph Curry. We're not really seeing a development part of his success. First the Utah game. I mean, it was all they were all running pick-and-roll through the second unit through him, right but those are pick-and-rolls and Nico mannion in primarily honestly side pick-and-roll Jordan Poole in that game. It's it was an accident that Steph Curry and Draymond, so there's kind of this if you're not competing this year. But you're not really developing him with the core. What exactly is. I don't know if that's fair. I I I suspect Kerr just doesn't want him to have to go against wage fair. You know Anthony David Wiley Theatre South but like Joe and be like all these starting centers while he's so young and still trying to build up his confidence. I imagine that's part of it. But that also leaves out where he's not playing with Seth Curry that that's all all good points and I would imagine that would probably you know progress as we go along as well, you know to see more of those things. So that's that's definitely something interesting as far as the the makes it makes sense. Now more sense to me for with the Wiseman situation because again, what I'm seeing from him is just a guy who can run. He's a good hands he can he's got good balance and he has some nice finishing moves for a guy who didn't even play him in college at all. But I hear you cuz you're right. It's just weird situation where you want to think of like, okay, they want a job. There I wonder if they're surprised a little bit that they were like, you know, five hundred and eighth. I wonder if that was a thing when clay went down when they figured okay, because another high draft pick we will develop in the expectations won't be so high home, but maybe that's not even plausible whenever you have a guy like Steph Curry on the team always going to be expected to win and win a lot more than you will. Yeah, and I mean it's a tough situation for a nineteen-year-old particularly nineteen-year-old who played three college games and then we all know the story and then you deal with a pandemic. So I mean, he literally hadn't played competitive action for over a year. It's a tough situation for any nineteen-year-old rookie board you throw that on top of it. It's worse. It's harder. You probably want to also throw in the mix Steve Kerr and the coaching set off as a whole hasn't really been in a rebuild situation when Steve Kerr took over the team now granted they were they were a solid playoff team. Obviously. He took them to the next level and wage. That would have been possible without a lot of the schematic choices he made but those were all players who were a little older. It's it's a different thing than this and then the last point is like I don't I don't know what the fan base really knows what it looks like either..

"That not that I predicted the way this game was going to go. But if you go back and watch that video and I said, there's two reasons why the Pelicans are not winning games right now, they are better than what their records suggest but they are not winning games because the two things turnovers and the three-point percentage and lo and behold what happened tonight. They lost this game because of turnovers and their three-point percentage 31 per month from Deep to go along with 20 turnovers on the night for the Pelicans. It's what they've been doing. They clean that up. This could still be a very good team. I'm not giving up on on these pages. I think they're a good team. They're better than what their records suggest. They're just young and sometimes it takes a while it takes getting beat up for a little bit for a team to win think about all those years in the late nineties when the Lakers lost to the Utah Jazz in the playoffs until they finally broke through in 2008. So kind of taken their lungs for a few years before they broke their not saying this Pelicans teams going to be on that Championship level wage. Just kind of what Young teams do Fast Break points. The Lakers only had twelve but they did win the points off turnovers battle 20 to 5 and then points in the paint the like Lakers actually got outscored but it was closed for tax 242 and the paint 21 fouls committed by the Pelicans 16 for the Lakers largest lead. This is a big swing 15-point lead for the Pelicans was their largest twenty five point lead for the Lakers wage was their largest 40-point swing pretty big pretty big. They're all right. more questions and comments Noon, you said great job as usual Trevor. Thank you question from Japan. Welcome in from Japan. I believe this is the first question that I've seen anywhere that we've read from Japan a gotten a lot from a lot of different places in the world. But welcoming from Japan said, oh no, no, no the first question from Japan and it flew past me home lost it I'm going to keep looking and see if I can find it again. I will keep looking here out. There it is. I found it. Will the Lakers get another rim protector. I think they might I think they might because when I look at this team and you think what are they lacking? What are they liking just in terms of skill set? And I'm said this a bunch but it's that traditional Rim protecting big. That's what they don't have right now. You've got Marcus although I think been getting better and better terms of protecting the paint. He's been using his physicality in there has been getting called for a weird amount of kind of cheap fouls, but that's that's been a thing, but they don't have that guy mark. All is not the shot-blocking big Montrezl Harrell is not a shot-blocking big even though as I noted the other day the Lakers or third right now in blocked shots per game. Which is nice we thought there was going to be a much bigger drop off losing Dwight Howard and Javale McGee, but I do think they will add if they had somebody they're going to add that 15 roster spot about a month ago over about five weeks..

So tonight we're gonna talk about the Lakers this win over the over the New Orleans Pelicans. We're going to talk about what happened early. The Lakers fell behind pretty early in the game were was not looking good. The Pelicans were hitting everything. And then in the second half everything turned around and as my buddy Chris get her McGee from Spectrum Sportsnet tweeted out the Lakers went on an 8240 run at one point eighty two former unreal unreal the ability to see that this team has in order to flip the switch. They win 112 295 will break down all the stats. We'll talk about who played well who didn't and I'm going to be taking your questions your comments and giving away some lakersnation.com license plate frames. Let's start off with this though. I've got a lot of questions and comments that are come in a lot of people saying easy win money and late in the game. Yes late in the game. It was indeed an easy win earlier though, not so much and I think what this game was more than anything else the biggest take away from me more than hey the Lakers beat the Pelicans more than the Lakers flip the switch. The biggest takeaway was the power of turnovers. You guys see what what happened in this game. The Pelicans were red-hot. They could not miss Brandon. Ingram's hitting shots falling down. They were making everything Nicole Alexander Walker stayed hot from a game. When you drop 37 on the Clippers. They were hitting everything in and conversely the Lakers. They were missing everything everything rimming in and out Marcus all little free throw line Jumper in a out Anthony Davis 3-pointer in and out.

"We're going to look back at this as debate trade for legitimate superstar that team has ever been able to make Milwaukee made the trade for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. They got back. I think two or three definitely two players jerseys while retarded Milwaukee, they were a good team late seventies through. The eighties like they got something for him. That's normally not how that works this, plus sign Williamson, they still have drew holiday, and they got a lot of young guys. They could pags get somebody else for. David Griffin is in an incredibly powerful position here, given that they just gave up one of the best players in the NBA and the thing I love the most about his position is that the Lakers allowed him to bet against the Lakers. He'll out he figured out a way where he said, you know what? I'm pretty sure come twenty twenty two when the bronze contract is up when Anthony Davis will have be magical ten year number of service time, which will allow him to then go to free agency and seek the bigger money. He's betting that the Lakers aren't going to be that well-managed and in that constraint it is brilliant, what he did because it's the top eight reverse protection, which you mentioned, which is a novel brilliant thing to do. It's the fact that he can pick swap the next year. And here's the key thing that I think has been sort of confused in the reporting around this come twenty twenty four. It's quite a pick. Swap. He has the ability to defer the pixel twenty twenty-five. So it's just. All of these protections hedging on the fact that, you know what, I think our future is brighter than what we just saw in Los Angeles. How excited do all those pick swats fastball. Like basketball doors love more than a train involve draft picks gossipy forbid, we talked about some players, y'all love some. What if I love somewhat if you mentioned, the king's earlier in this segment, man, I still, I still get energized about the idea that Knicks staus cause was traded from the kings for like some pick swaps to Saint this trade is going, but the thing I will say, though is the twenty twenty one twenty twenty two legs at all. They'll still be good when Anthony Davis reach that magic number. They're going to give him his money, assuming his healthy. Everything's gonna be fine for the Lakers on that it's going to be the back end. David Griffin mind even have their job..

"Don't know if he left the building. No, that's then then he left the building. I'm happy for the guys that you know that played the game. And we want to tell you the truth. You know, this whole thing has been a dumpster fire. Did the gel? From North Carolina. These sites of NBA also retail. We have all kinds of the gas coming by today. Then Simmons is gonna hang soup bird will be here mantras zero miles bridges, but we're starting right here on set with our NBA insider Adrian merge announced he two thousand three NBA camp. Stephen Jackson, two thousand four NBA champ Rushie Wallace, the people Noah time, it is a hundred percent, right. You guys all heard at the top of the show Alvin gentry called the whole situation with the pelicans and Anthony Davis a quote dumpster fire. Not what you want from your coach that was after Anthony Davis suffered a shoulder injury during last night's game. Which was fortunately, not found to be serious. But he was ruled out for the rest of the game eighty then left the arena with his agent Rich Paul while the game was still going on that caused a lot of confusion. I actually just spoke to rich. He's here in the building with us. And he said a was leaving to get an MRI. Why since they don't have an MRI machine in the building. And this was under the direction of the team physician, but nobody on the medical staff told Alvin gentry I don't know of anyone told del devs because this morning, you sent shockwaves through the NBA with the news that the pelicans have indeed fired general manager del Dem's, the pelicans one one playoff series and Dem's entire nine year term with the team. So we've had discussions about his job security for a few seasons. Now what made it happen today? Well, the his dismissal was inevitable in this off season. It was coming and they had already started to get a sense of possible candidates names. My sense was this was going to wait until after the all star break. I do think the events of last night sped it up. But this was coming and their goal of this organization now is to this. Anthony Davis trade will be the most important decision going for this team. It's going to impact them for a decade to come. What do they get back for him? Then who gonna get back? Draft picks and who's going to select those players and who's going to set a new course for this organization. And so they're out in the marketplace or the first team in the league who's out in the marketplace looking for a new GM, and I'm told they're going to be willing to spend and they're going to be aggressive to try to bring in a high profile or whether it's a high profile or certainly a high performing GM candidate. I mean, this is a team that is owned by the Benson family. Gale Benson is running the team. Now this saints are their main opposition. And there's been a feeling in the NBA the pelicans in minute a little bit of a step child. Are you saying that they're going to take a more active approach when you say they're willing to spend hire an experienced GM? Also, I do think they've spent on salary there. They've Alvin gentry makes a competitive in base salary and a smaller market. I don't think it's been spending. I think they've been the decisions that Dell has has made to try and surround Anthony Davis with a supporting cast that was sustainable long-term. Listen, they've missed on a lot of draft picks free agent signings. Go back to MIR Arctic Solomon hill. They've overpaid for players who haven't performed and then go back to the DeMarcus cousins trade they have really nothing to show for it. And they traded a young player in buddy healed who if you put him on this team right now, you know, he'd he'd help solve a lot of their problems. So I think structurally and how the roster's been built how they've drafted develop players. These have all been issues, and it all came to a head here almost a decade with an organization into only Vance in the playoffs..
"pelicans" Discussed on The Starters
"Or what team you're drafted to you have equal opportunity to make an all star team for sure let's talk Anthony Davis. All right. Let's do it coming up on Thursday. We we know all these crazy offers there was the underwhelming offer. And there was the godfather offer. Then there was this crazy latest offer. But now the Lakers are done. They don't wanna play anymore. Do you think? Anthony Davis is going to be traded by the deadline this Thursday should the pelicans. Do what's your take on this whole crazy crazy scenario if I was betting my house on something? I would say that Anthony Davis Nabi traded to the Lakers before the deadline say that he wasn't going to end up being a Laker. I just think that, you know, a lot of times when you're a franchise you want to see all your offers. And if on the pelicans, I would want Jason Tatum. Jason Tatum to me has proven himself in the primetime has proven himself as a potential printed all star all MBA type guy. Right. And that's who you wanna try to sell to for the next four or five years and build around. And so in order to do that you have to wait because of the d- rose rule you to wait until the summer. And so, you know, what's if you're not they're not battling for playoff position right now. So what is really honestly the rush? Well. A couple of guys saying stuff actually, they'll brings us to a situation. If you don't think Anthony Davis is moved before the deadline and a lot of people don't include yourself, obviously, what does the Pickens do with Anthony Davis. He says he wants to play. He's back from his finger injury. If he's still there after Thursday, how do they handle it? Do they play them? Do they have risk him getting injured and hurting any sort of potential deal? What would what would you do especially being a professional athlete? I mean, you would wanna play I assume, but could you see why the organization wouldn't wanna play I see from both angles. But when you know, you stepped out when he stepped out and said, he wasn't signing the sup- sup-. That's that's for him. He can he can make that when you make a trade or class. I think that's when it puts people in different positions. And so if you're the pelicans, and you know that he's not signing the extension. You are putting your franchise at risk if he were to get injured. And so I think it's something that you know, as an MBA player. I'm sure. Sugars and his contract where if he doesn't play and get all MBA that's money loss for him as well. So that's something that they're going to have to work out. But as a franchise it would be really hard for me to put my the stake of my franchise out there every night playing for something that we we don't want. We want address on my draft pick. So the pelicans are going to have have have some tough choices to me. Absolutely. Well, we thank you so much. Thank you coming on. We'll be watching tonight. Thanks so much going to give you guys a jersey. That we weren't having smitty jersey up to New Jersey. Jersey. I don't wanna make it up there. You don't want the worst of the year? All right. Lots Moore's come on the show tonight. We'll continue to make fun of my weird. I patch and Tralee will step into the crossfire to debate crossfire who will be the biggest name traded at the deadline. By this is how it works. The champion takes on the challenger for this granddaddy of a mall round number one gentleman. Alright, right. We are forty four hours and thirty-seven minutes away from the trade light. So tell me who is the biggest name that we will see dealt between now..

"Players usually don't choose to play for three teams and three years talked about that multiple times Paul George state for why may leave. We'll see what happens what if a deal doesn't get done. And we're. Pass the trade deadline and he plays at my neck pelicans. My back my neck, and my lays out the season with the pelicans would any age the Celtics put together a package with all those young players and assets that could help really help them to rent anti Davis for one year. You're not ridding me in for one year. You bring them in getting them for million with the culture hope that convinces him the state. With the understanding that it could be a rental. And so you then challenges the u the challenge the player at his word. I just brought you into Toronto. We're number one. See we're good. You say you wanna be okay, Tinder, we are contending. So now if you leave it to a bad team. Oh, he's just trying to get paid. Just wanna be. He he what he was saying it really what he's about that exposes the player as well. Based on what his words Jalen rose, always talking about his Anthony Davis all day long friends one talking about his Anthony Davis, but quietly the warriors have come out in play. They now have won eleven straight games after beating the Victor Ola depot list Pacers last night. It will seem that they've really turned the corner and Steph curry gives a little bit of insight into what's going on that locker room. Let's. Fifty bitter. Quitting that kinda guess springs on. From also. Some thirty games playoff playoff time. Further evidence starting playoff mentality starting to ramp. It up started early. They've got thirty two games left in the season. Jalen rose. They currently have fourteen losses. How many losses? Do you think they will end the season with they currently have thirteen fourteen or team with thirty two games left? Approximately. I say they lose about six more. I think so those numbers in my head is well they're going to end up like sixty two twenty year. They're gonna get to sixty and the probably lose one at the end because they're just resting people. Absolutely. This this feels to me again, like the warriors are going to go on another run. Their cousins has been these. He's been involved. They've folded him in the warriors. Looked so good that it's almost like I prefer to talk about Anthony Davis because the championship is over. I'm going to think this over might as well get the playoffs saved this clip. Saved this clip January twenty nine it's going to be broken news. When it happens. They're going to be speed bumps for the Golden State Warriors. I disagree on a way to win in the western I disagree. I think it's gonna be like it was a couple years ago when when they breezed through the plano if they have to play against Houston and o'casey two teams that both have all star level players in the back court. The just so happen to have two guys on both of those teams that have won MVP's the past two seasons in another guy. Paul George who started in this year's all star game. Okay. See has a lot of Lynn do a lot of switching on a perimeter. That's a great recipe for going against the Golden State Warriors. They have a big Stephen Adams to play great make boogie work and or frustrate him and or drama and as a wildcard Roberson. Russell. And what he's the wildcard remember katie's to play with them clearly doesn't anymore. And also, we think be guard him. Steph instead of being at the three point line. He will be in the post. Oh, they're run their office. Angle be no hot. So of course, I love the warriors. Love the splash brothers love Steph curry, I feel like everybody else. They're the untouchables of the NBA true story. But this idea that they're about the breeze through the play offs like two eighty nine pistons and lose one game. Or like they did last year about two that ain't happened. There about two they are about to..

"He said he's not signing with the pelicans, quote, unquote, requested a trade. And now the pelicans they've released a statement. Let's take a look at what the pelicans had to say about all this. I love the wording in this relative to specific talks of trade. We will do this on our time line one that makes sense for our team, and it will not be dictated by those outside of our organization. We have also requested the league to strictly enforce the tampering rules associated with this transaction, Jalen rose. We all know what that says on the surface. But what are the pelicans really saying? With that statement, this is about to be ugly, nasty messy divorce. Oh, what makes you feel that way? Because the pelicans already feel like LeBron James has been tampering with Anthony Davis. They already understand that if the flavors called them and they look down at their phone area, code three one. Oh, three two three two one three on their fall, y'all better be talking about giving us five players or I'm sending yada voicemail, well, finishing about this was the time line stuff because the Lakers package their offer isn't necessarily going to change in the next week. And in the next eight months, so if you're the pelicans, aren't so this is what you have to offer me fine. Thank you very much. I'll take Anthony Davis and well play the Davis until the off season. And then I'll decide whether I want to take this offer from and you know, what else it does for New Orleans. It ruins it Rex this season. Oh, yeah. I mean, this isn't didn't look great to begin with especially with Anthony Davis being with this finger injury. So here's another question for you. Mr. rose, let's said they don't trade him by the trade deadline, which is very much a possibility based on everything. That will just reporting based on everything that we've read in this statement does Anthony Davis injuries linger a little longer does he play a little less. Does he try to stay fresh? How's it work? This is where things get awkward because now we were at first we were unified front we were pulling in the same direction, and we had the same goal when you say you don't wanna be here anymore. Now. There's a fork in a row, you're looking out for you. I'm looking out for me. So for the organization air for the fans, they're going to be monitoring what you just said really close. And if they think if they feel the he's not playing and he's healthy. That's really going to be an issue for his for his reputation will that's we saw this with Leonard last year. And Anthony Davis is of injury prone. Right. Like, he's you know, he's he's bit hurt. And he's got this finger issue. Now, could you say all went to go see the finger specialist? I got a second opinion. And they say that maybe I shouldn't play. And he makes sure that he doesn't get injured for the rest of the seats. Well, you'll have an entire state and legion of pelican fans also giving you the finger. No way, shape or form. Now, are you representing our best interest? When you tell us you wanna leave. 'cause you know, what this is a point that people never made. When when your best player says that like LeBron did in Cleveland, Katie did and o'casey, and he eventually tweeted sub tweeted Furner account tweeted what I'm about to say, you basically saying this coaching staff and these guys that I play with..
"pelicans" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"That includes Lonzo ball Kyle Kuzma visas zoo, Botts any first round pick, so Shannon. If you're the pelicans, would you take that offer? No. Republicans really don't have any incentive to do this deal, especially now because guess what this same deal will be there for the Lakers. I mean, if they want to do this deal with the Laker. It'd be there in July for me skip is that the pelicans it to themselves to look around and see if there's a better off on the table. I don't know if there's a better offer. I don't know who who all interested in Anthony Davis because one of the wrist see not to get to five tracks. Gil, I believe to Ronald Toronto will regret giving what they gave up to get Kawai. If I don't believe who is gonna stay in. This is the risk that you run if you give up assets and draft and future assets for Anthony Davis because you're hoping that avair similar situation happens to you. What happened? Okay. See they traded for Paul George. We know he wanted to go to LA, but he got there after year being they're playing alongside Ross the fans embraced a Russ invade embraced him willing to share. The stardom in. Okay. See with it. And he said man, I love it. I'm not going to LA. I'm most a right here. You're hoping that happens with Anthony Davis. If he gives the wherever he's going Boston have tremendous assets. A Boston understand they know this get any deal for Anthony Davis is going to require Jason Tatum. So if you think you're going to be able to throw a will give you Rozier, and we'll give you this draft pick, and we'll give you Jalen Brown. No. There's not a deal. That's not going to start with Jason Tatum coming from Celtic. I just don't think skip they have the assets right now because. What if I mean you here? Okay. It's going to start with Kouzmin zoo box. And maybe Lonzo, okay? For me. I gotta store skip. And you know, I get as much as you want in the timeframe you need I open up the doors, take whatever you need other than LeBron James. You can have it all if you will Ingram, you won't Kuwait. You won't Josh heart you Alonzo, you won't zoo. Man. I of all the guys as mentioned the one guy that I really hate to see. But if you way scam sometimes you gotta let the hair go into high in this. What is going to take the close the deal? I'm sorry box. We really enjoyed you. We think you're going to be a nice nice young salmon this lead. But you got to go. I just don't know. I just don't see the incentive skill. If you leave me what incentive? Do I have to do? Right by you. Now, some people say, well, you know, cooler heads have been strands, and he's going to do right by this person. But you know, emotions are involved, and it's reported that the pelicans tried to steer Anthony Davis away from Rich Paul because they know what would this was going to entail because when it came down to it Anthony Davis supermax player, he really needs major everyday was gonna get the max five years two hundred forty million if he stayed in New Orleans. So does he need agent for that? What he goes? I'll know happy. We might get you ten percent less than the MAC. He's getting the max he signed Rich Paul for one reason to get him out of New Orleans into getting where..
