"pelicans" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Lakers did it again. They collapsed down the stretch against New Orleans pelicans and most likely put an end to their season and their hopes of making not the playoffs, but the play in tournament that's right, the Lakers now sitting in the 11th seed and probably where they're going to stay after dropping a very winnable game to the New Orleans pelicans. Oh man. But maybe we shouldn't have expected anything different the way the season is gone. Joining me is Sean Davis from blakers nation dot com..
"pelicans" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"I think that's fair. Because even again, if you look at, first, I'll throw rotations, you and me were kind of talk about this, texting throughout the game. Rotations were very weird tonight to say the least. But that's not what I'm going to talk about. Again, Frank has to make an adjustment. Credit against coaches have they went to the have, I mean, obviously I don't know this. I'm not in the locker room, but lately, obviously, came out and made an adjustment to what the Lakers are doing. And the Lakers, at some point, Frank has to realize, oh crap, okay, they've countered this adjustment. Let's either drop it, or let's counteract their adjustment that they're making, and then offensively people are talking about how frustrated they are with the lack of ball movement. That's Frank. Frank has to go in the huddle with a guys. These last four games, we did this, this, this is in this, right? Go back to that, right? So if you want to blame Frank, sure, but in that's what I would blame Frank on. I mean, the refs are really, really bad tonight. But outside of that, who else do you blame? You can't, really, is either the Frank or the refs. Honestly, I mean, you had THT wasn't good, but that's about the world. That's the rotation. So either way, your only options in my opinion are Frank or the refs. And yeah, I mean, look, this is, when you look at the officiating in this game, it was bad. It was bad and we'll spend plenty of time talking about that. The pelicans were the aggressors, but they got the benefit of the whistle in this one as well. And so that was, that didn't help. But I'm not going to look at that and say, okay, this is why the Lakers lost. They had this game essentially in hand if they had been able to see it out through the third quarter and just not collapse. Just whatever. Just don't collapse. Just don't fall to pieces, and you're probably going to be okay in this game. And that's what they did. They fell to pieces. So I'm not going to completely blame the officials, but yeah, when you look at Frank Vogel, did the team find a way to sustain themselves, did he counter the counter from the public? I mean, that's what that's what NBA basketball is all about. In terms of halves, you see two teams come out with a game plan. One of those teams has their gameplay succeed in the first half. The other team does it. That's almost every single game. That's what happens. The team that is down, the team that is not finding success with their gameplay coming into the game, they make adjustments at halftime, they come back out, and then it's on the team that was winning to adjust to those adjustments, mid half, to figure out, okay, what is it that the other team is now throwing at us? What's changed? How do we fix that? The Lakers came out with a good game plan. The pelicans made adjustments, the Lakers then went, oh no, we don't know what to do now..

"Need indeed. No, that's a 100% true, guys. There are some very strict rules if you work for the Lakers and how you cover them. So yeah. Here we get to vent and complain. Yeah, exactly. Alberto Flores said the Lakers are a few games out of falling out of the play in tournament. What micro goals would you like to see new coach when we just talked about that, but developing young guys and G league players, yes. Yeah. I mean, let's bring up the gigli guys and here's the thing. You've got 22 games left. Maybe a couple more in the play in. Let's face it. Even if they win in the play and tournament, are they getting back to the first round, probably not. Okay? But the question now for this team becomes, what do you get out of what's left? If you just say it's over, it's done. We're getting nothing from it. Well, then this season truly is a waste, right? Then it really is a lost season because you've got nothing from it. Why don't you try to get whatever you can? And maybe it's not much, but country Andre Jordan. The Lakers I know they don't want to pay them the money or whatever, but cut some of the older guys at the end of the bench that you know aren't going to be back next year anyway. Bring up some of the south bay guys and give them some minutes. Give them a shot. Is it going to hurt? Compared to where things are right now? Probably not. At least give them some opportunity and who knows, maybe you stumble upon something that can actually fit that could be useful for next season. What's the harm in doing that and potentially you can benefit moving forward at least you can get something out of the remainder of the season rather than just, well, let's run out the clock and then go from there. After seeing Deandre Jordan basically he will pass into the tenth row. And then he said my bad. And they said, I got such a good laugh. I saw it live, and I was like, who would you point to? I'll say this. It also occurred to me too. This is probably the end of Deandre Jordan's career..
"pelicans" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"And honestly, I still, again, like I said, I think they are safe to make at least the tenth seat, but if you told me today that 6 weeks down the line, the Lakers are out of it, I would not be surprised. I just wouldn't. This was and this is the scary part. The next three games are what its Golden State, the clippers. I think the Mavericks. This was the this was the win. This was the, how many times have you said that? Easy game on the schedule, right? Was this one? And who knows? Maybe they surprised in the next few games and they've suddenly show up. But yes, there have been a number of times. There's been a number of times where we've said, hey, this one should be a W oh, they just lost OKC. Oh, they lost OKC again. Oh, they found a way to lose to the blazers. Okay, they found a way to lose to the clippers. Multiple times. This is, this is where it's hard to pick out a game and say, look ahead, look at their schedule to point to a game and go, oh, well, they should get a W in that one. Fool's errand. Don't do that. I stopped a while ago. It's tough. I don't look at the schedule anymore and go, oh, that's a give me. Oh, that should be a win. I just go look at it and go, oh, I hope they win this game. That's where I'm at. Yeah. Yeah. Instagram account from YouTube. That's actually the name of the account is Instagram account from YouTube. With a super chat. Is it even worth it for the Lakers to go into the play and tournament at this point? Yeah, it is. It is just state revenue. Yeah, just for revenue. They don't have their draft pick. Regardless of what happened, they don't have their draft pick this season. So there's no benefit to dropping down in the standings. Like, if they were, if their pick was, I don't like top ten protected or something like that. Then you could say, okay, maybe do they really try to drop the bottom out of this thing and see if they have a shot at keeping their pick. But there's no zero incentive to lose games right now, which is part of what makes this frustrating. So yes, going to the play and tournament, you might as well. You might, because what? I mean, maybe you were able to get into the playoffs and then you can get some more experience for some guys and things like that. It doesn't cost you anything. It's not like you don't or I should put it the other way. There's no benefit to losing games right now or to dropping out of the play in tournament. Well, that's not true. The benefit is that they got to go on vacation earlier and so do we. That's true. Well, they get to go earlier. But.
"pelicans" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Well, they just suffered an embarrassing loss to the New Orleans pelicans that saw them trail by 30 for a decent part of the contest and look, well, pretty lifeless during this one. We've got a lot to talk about here. We're going to be taking a lot of your questions and comments. I'm sure a lot of you are going to be venting and rightfully so. Joining me is Matt the optimist Peralta. Matt, I don't even know if you can be optimistic after this one. I mean, I'm happy that the season is starting to come to a close. That's kind of where the mindset is right now. I only have to watch 22 more games, Trevor. And then maybe a play in tournament. And then maybe the playoffs, but then at least I get to enjoy my summer a little bit earlier than I had expected. So there's that. Matt, this is this encapsulates just how bad this game was. Jason T from YouTube with a super chat said, this is for the Lakers nation postgame drinking fund. Jason, thank you. You guys. I appreciate it. Yeah, you know where our minds are at right now for sure. You know, let's not even, let's not even mess around with the stats and stuff like that. If you watch the game, if you're coming for YouTube from Facebook from Twitter, welcome. First of all, if you watch the game, we all know what we saw. Matt, during this game, I believe it was at halftime. Richard jepsen, who was doing the commentary for ESPN, said that the Lakers needed to bring and I'm paraphrasing here, but they needed to bring an energy and effort level that at least showed respect for the game. Is that accurate? Do you feel like what the Lakers just did tonight was to the point where it was disrespectful to the game of basketball? Oh, a 100%. It was disrespectful to basketball. It was disrespectful to the fan base, just everyone that had to watch that tonight. There's something to be said when you don't give your all at something and for the Lakers tonight it was very, very, very apparent early on that this was a game that if things got out of hand, which it did. There was just no chance that they were going to come back. None. I personally saw nothing in the first half that went. Okay, you know, maybe if they tweaked this, dude, this a little bit more, they'll come out of this somehow. But no, this is well, I mean, look, the first game out of the all star break, that was a heartbreaker, and then to come out like this against a pelicans team that is quietly surging up the standings a little bit. The trailblazers are pretty much done for the season when nurkic sitting out, they might not come back this year. So that tenth play in spot is up for grabs. And so the pelicans are making a red for it, and then here are the Lakers. Now I believe only two and a half games back are in front of them now for the 9 spot. So this was a game that every game at this point must win. Every game. But this one in particular had play in tournament implications..
"pelicans" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"Is there some action? There's nothing going on behind me. Don't say how am I hearing this through you right now? You're on mute. It's so loud that it's breaking the mute. Breaking there's some people in front of me who are shooting and I guess could be pelicans play as well, we know. I mean, the way these shots are just clinging off the damn backboard. Yeah, Zion's getting some workout now that the arena is clear. So he doesn't want to be seen. Thousands of miles away. Can be far enough. Thousands of pounds? Oh, it's a thousands of miles. Sorry. Yeah. But the smart stuff, my read on it, Joshua is, yes, I totally. I agree with you a 1000% sure. The self motivation thing is always there. He's been frigging motivated by the garden report. You know, like we know he's looking for reasons. He bend that way. Kendrick Perkins, of course, chip on the shoulder guy from the get go. Guys like that exist and it's great because. It fuels their hate fire and that gets them going. We talked about the chefs say, John, how do you feel about the stay on this? No, no, really quickly, but the thing in this one and we all kind of talked about it. We all agree a little bit. It's almost like what strikes me about the comments recently is no one's come over the top and been like, yeah, like, oh yeah, Marcus told us he loves us and we said we love him too. Or Marcus, there's a lot of heat about Marcus being the point guard, like he's absolutely our guy. We love him. We love it when he's leading us out there. He keeps us together and he keeps us calm. There's not a lot of doubling down on what Marcus himself is saying about himself, which is weird. And we talked about that with Brad last year. No one's getting Brad's back. It kind of feels like no one's getting Marcus is back or not in a big enough way right now. So I wonder if he's kind of looking around the room like, did I kind of go too far with some of this stuff? Maybe the criticism of the Jays wasn't great. Did I lose? Did I lose them? Did I lose them somewhere? And they're kind of nodding. Yeah, and that's too bad if that's if that's happening because that's terrible. I was for it because I was getting annoyed with them. I agree with you. And it bothers me if they're not mentally strong enough to handle that kind of truth. From a guy who has been through the battles of being on a sub 500 team and getting into the playoffs to seeing them ascend to being a teenage that's a game away from getting the NBA Finals. And why would you not embrace what he's trying to talk to you about? When you know where it's coming from. He's not grandstanding. He's actually trying to help you become a better player. And his play of late is play of late as I think really kind of doubled down on what he's saying. I think early on, he was saying one thing, but his play was a little wasn't really backing that up. But the last few games, I think he really is trying to consciously will his words into action. Being more of a pass first playmaker. You're not wrong, charade. Everything you're saying is right, but what's interesting is he still feels it, he still feels doubted and then he delivered those comments before the Atlanta game, then that night in the game, you know, he enters the game with the Celtics down one..

"But i think if the pacers were trading savona sir asking for lot back the should i it for me. It would depend on. What's lined up for for stephen adams. I'm i'm not making any type of big commitment to start addressing hundred. I'm not trying to make any type of commitment into another big frankly like i'm tired of giving up acids for first centers In i would like investors in perimeter players are in wings. But i like the bonus a lot. And i think he'd be really good. Fit with zion but it really would depend on what they have lined up for atoms and but if if they had a legitimate trade leonard for adams where they're not attaching a pick for then sure i think lonzo signing trade lonzo kill a pick would be worth entertaining after all right well.

Get your feedback on any questions. Comments less knows well and of course read us over peru who've dot org so i am really psyched today. Someone who. I've been conversing with actually quite a quite a bit recently. Always listened to his pot over in the know with mason ginsburg schmidt dua of bourbon street shots as well. How are you doing today man. I'm doing well mark. I've i've enjoyed interacting and talking to you over the past few months. I've been excited to come on his podcast and talk some hoops. Yeah definitely man. I so took two people listening. If you're not aware. I think burglary shots does give it away Shemit covers the pelicans and is up in and around new orleans. And you know this season has been very different for a multitude of reasons for for for every team feels like. But this pels team i think is pretty squarely i mean. Would you say it's been a disappointment. So far twenty seven thirty four Given where or how do you view the season. So far yeah. It's a very complex question right because it for it to be a disappointment or a success or anything in between it kind of has to go back to what the expectations were prior to the season. Starting and i think a lot of a lot of people around the league on think a lot of pelicans writers and fans kind of had the pelicans outside of the playoffs. Too big and so the expectation wasn't that they would be good however in the fashion that they have reached that outcome of being just outside. The playoffs has been disappointing because along the way they've discovered. Just how good. Zion williamson is Brandon ingram is also an all star caliber player. And so when you look at some of the pieces around this team especially the top. Two players in bringing in the vets like stephen adams an eric bledsoe we talk about. I'm sure later In hiring a veteran coach in st as damning gundy they should have been better than they are and they shouldn't have blown as many leads as they did which has been. I think emblematic of the season. Where the. Pelicans are phenomenal team. In the first forty five minutes of the game and in the last three minutes they turned into a bunch of preschoolers. Who don't know how to dribble shoot defend due to anything..

He just gave away. Jj redick you could've put it as in the damn tree. That's the tray right there. So what are you talking about. You can gave them that.

And we lost to the spurs and game seven so you have you have streets in new orleans you shrieks where they you can see the everything that they've been pitching can company can come together. What i'm saying. Yeah now is the time. Is there a possibility. Eighty could've ended up with zion. If you wanted to stay if he would have resigned. Yes would you imagine that combo. Who can you imagine that it would. It would would have would work though remains to be seen we we. We didn't see it the judge as fans we couldn't see the judge it as a cook coulda shoulda well about it anyway on planning would had to having moved to center design a plan with him. He basically played the five on the floor the ban because the lebron made him. You gotta you gotta hear what i'm saying. Yeah was designed was on his team. You think he would. I'm a place in a cool bra. Moved my position because of a rookie. Eighty anthony davis. I understand who you are and what you are. Would you have the biggest dude on a team. That's flies on head weird as awkward as change. Remember at the he left new orleans. Any day was like. I'm not fucking playing center for rookie say breath. They has had a breakfast. That's where that's where corporate. That's where the front office needs step in now. We got the fucking future greatest motherfucker thing ever. You are over talented. You oughta man. We love you. We invested everything in the us doll. Listen we need you to do one thing for us. We actually do shit full injuries. Which which were reported right that. That's true he. He did engine. Some of them was bolted. Fo- injuries right. We'll at all that shit ride we we we didn't even put you out there bad in the median busey doll. Just play with young ball. Play with his yeoman play with his young man. Y'all could be a force to be reckon with now you can command fucking free agents to do shit within they contract to come here now you can now. You can recruit talent from multiple different. Just me i like the way that with a look it would have been zion. It would have been any davis drew holiday. Come on man. There would have been a nice but anyway. They wanted as he want to win now. Boy anthony davis daddy the greatest liquor biggest league fan. I mean he wanted to go up when you so into when you look at the end result what happened for four him. You can't fault him to degree immediately. Gotta ring immediately got immediately and he got the game. Winning shot pretty much. What else so they did. Lebron avenue played something. The brown made should happen. So there is New orleans we gotta we gotta just step by game when it comes us trying to contend for championship For the pelicans just just to cap off what you were saying early is the market is demarcus to mark his disagree with okay. San antonio a small market like us people bought into the system in san antonio that's what delivered a championship. How often does an nba coach. Stay that long on one team. That's because he's got the trust of the front. What what one of the greatest that's true very arguably the best to someone will say maybe two other guys. that's how great is naggus papas. Nice man to articles is probably better feel accident and say do them in bulk because of how many yet was his name or read arbor so the ghetto. You can't always say that as a small market and right now. I mean as as as easy to write off san antonio did it multiple times that means the people bought into what they had going on so going back into that conversation quick. That's what a front office has to do. A hell of a sales job on a anthony davis like listen. We got you you sacrifice you did for us you swept the blazes for us you. I mean you did everything we just need to do. One small thing we can. We're getting you the help and we're getting you young help. That's gonna fuck fucking help you in your latter years. It's going to take a lot of pressure off of you. All we need you to do this. One silent fuss just one time where you boy. Fuck this fat bitch. One time we was. You play with rookie. He's i on andrew holiday or you get to play lebron. La saybrook you know at the end of the day even after that one year if he played withdrew zion. He can still get out of his contract. Because new orleans is built that type of fucking reputation for for players the new orleans all small-market teams in the nba. So he he can force his way out any fucking way. Lebron was going to make that happen regardless he just won the now he just wanted it sooner than later. You wanted to as fuck. You wanted the year before that true. So he he was. He was looking. He was done he was already done he was already done nuance. Brad fucking ryan was on at the at the but he lebron even said at the. He showed that he could take a team. Pass the blazers. He was ready to leave knowles because he knew that was the best they can do. But that's a shame. No dog for my whole lot man. If i'm the lead over like that bro. Come on man.

But i can see them getting swell cause they ain't so inexperienced in been the play none of them most of the main players they never been to the playoffs. i would say if i could get one game you gotta you gotta get one game at home. At least one of these one begun to begin thought he would definitely lose. It'll be a miracle if they win. That's that's a stack kindergarten. I have have that big deeper. If you're not going to be the player of the year man out on the westbound now he swat everything. He is fucking motivated from that anyway. Shit down of college big right. You heard me new white. Don't wipe nose down. Don't wipe nothing else now. You should see that press conference dot actually was gang. I can you live. He fucked with a lot of people emotions with their shit point.

Assistant was fun but that was funny as hell man notice back to anybody with covert anything like that. That's what that's it was hilarious comedy yesterday. Yeah but i wanna touch most subject on nba. The last. i mean talking about There's out guiseley about the news about the signing of the markers outs i know. They went to the fucking mosque. What the fuck that. I tell you i wanted before. We got on his down to the nets. What i told you you said you want him to come to north can wear. I know we have a dog in the fight. I knew that we didn't have no chance again him. I know i know no boys you have to have him. Come off the bench and with this team that we have set a imagine him in that rotation. The funny funding is he'll come off the bench in brooklyn. He's coming out. that was going to live the differences. The nets are contended. Yeah come out the bench for a team. That's not a dog. you gotta team with brooklyn. How long has that union stay together. One year right with new orleans sales pitches you got is when a bus so would that narrative being that man you sales pitch wall dog. You've got the future you go look at zion. Stats man brian. He's rewriting the right. Now when with his earnest batsman or talking about something though i mean it's mainly about pelicans we talking about right now but the league is wide open right now for a championship. Wave is davis is down not road lincoln and go this dot com san At right now it's over with. I'm i am ready to see. Go up against a western conference team. Wait a minute timeout. So you so you saying that phillies not capable. You're not giving the boy hurt right now. I know i'm just saying bad. A- it don't matter may win win win the heart. You stood milwaukee county explore every last one. Get twenty five. That is that. I will say this. That is a strong contingent sir. We're asking cavs game but you need a one hundred percent focus kyrie. I think you're doing for the finals. He did it with a cleveland. Cleveland killing right. now she's can lanes. Now i get to know these folks. Don't they just had a baby his quite santa be. I'm talking about a lot of time. He got into when he was in boston. He had a super team in boston. They should have won the finals. Now for whatever happened in boston. All still is still weird with but made me was fucking with manda media kept on. Xm question about is gonna sign back with the team. It's been aside and coming because every team every player though every dog is but but but some are every time every time in i interview. That doesn't make any sense in oman. It was how look how. Lonely anthony davis. It is the same shit. Randy and david won't be it as a difference. I mean clearly. He didn't want to be in boston. He reside additives. It was came out. Lebron came on interview saying that in wall. They weren't gonna push him. Because he was a franchise they didn't have nothing noteworthy enough to push him to tell them to get off his behind decide when he came to la. now full. This how we plan you plan every game this how we roll in a more testing to the anti david character. There you go. That's not on pellets. There you go. But what i'm saying is when you have a superstar who was not who feels like they got. They can't they don't have to do with the damn franchise says then. Yeah i mean. Don't think you can blame the pelicans for pampering those you go do think boston did the same thing. Maybe thing though lebron everybody. Pamper cleveland pampered. Shit out of him. But the brian himself the brian is the brand of the nba. Lebron had the drive himself. Actually do it. Anthony davis wasn't built like that. No as in. David is the best number two. Yes best number two. He's not built to be the number one guy that was the case he would. He would drag the pelicans to to multiple playoff now. Parents can't even get but no. Yeah i guess he's it depends on what you what chris paul are you talking about because maybe it is. New orleans is a two degrees to a degree it is is the market. Remember the play offs when we had opportunity to offer as always online he always put he always put put his. You remember the lakers. When we to we now that to me. That was the best team that came out of.

"Right. We always five. Oh so so recently. The nba. The nba trade deadline passed lonzo ball. Still on the team. Which thing you'll have keep. It allows over favored we can. We can stay with lonzo. I think so too but my thing is with his dad's comments about not wanting to be in new orleans. The thing that has any kind of america. Abram go ahead i so that he talks to his tufts intensity i mean. Relationship is in as great as it used to be. but he's dead. Really have those kind of casual conversation and nine seventy five you know he wants to be in a big market because he knows we all know that guy play he you know. He's his. I q was amazing. You know he's definitely improvement is gonna be. It's gonna be a force to be with you know about the knicks. Not guess three to four years. Now he's gonna be that guy that guy that everybody's goddamn he's really really good right. Not just you know. He's reminded me of of of the kevin. Kevin demand became kevin durant. Anything a lot of elle's live else. You know start with the seattle with puck. Seattle sonics in also. So so. that's what this guy is. He's the big that makes that makes big thing you know. So he's gonna wanna be in a bigger market going over with lonzo your now with lonzo his. Do you got opportunity in the want us to build. Some special zaylon has been on fire lately. You know what i'm saying. He had thirty nine night. Thirty eight last night. Twenty seven three he he. He walked into the gym. He's walking into the gym. You ought to know what you give them with zion. Now you know what i'm saying with the right amount of team in the right amount of time because nobody's expecting real talk you know you can see that. Zion is the future area but what the right yeah together. Absolute keeping them together the to go but they need a third piece in lonzo ball. Just say you know what man if we can really hold us contingent down in new orleans. You know what saying despite what my daddy saying. Despite what other people in the media have been saying whatever the case may be you had an opportunity to really build something. Special teams young is prime. They just gotta learn how to close out. We lost a lot of games this year. Because we don't know how to finish especially the recent polling game you know what i'm saying about the games. She began before it is the Dallas but the james the The game yesterday again. Them i do. They were up by nine to my do any minute. You don't want to get the nuggets. They're just a fucking nuggets. So you gotta so not so easy if they can just grow like a lot of teams you don't see a lot of teams especially this day in. Nba allowed his team. Young teams to develop lounge can develop. He's getting better. He's shooting the ball off the chain lately. You know what i'm like. Come on man like you got something here just ride the way we need some other key pieces outside of that but that call can come together. We'll be something to deal with the next no no at the latest the next two to three years they got. They got a nice little little thing going. Yeah he sustained and mild pain if he wants to try to build a championship contender. He will stay if he wants to go. Make you know way more money for the bright lights of whatever big market. He wants to go to the. He'll probably leave. Is that a decision. He's wanna make a decision that somebody's making four him or one thousand percents. 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. Let me ask you this if just say hi pathetically. Speaking lonzo goes who the first pick them up. They gonna next hour same from what he's been looking like in the headlines in back channels or whatever new york in chicago chicago. What would you like to see him go. 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. So i think if he hooked up with if i wanted to see if i was a fan allows just the player. I would like to see him. 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. Yeah i was thinking about going drag. It's definitely does he. Make too much data give up. Give him a job that drives drives like that funding. Steve do he likes. Don't you can drop thirty whenever you want. Whenever he more dad duties like rice although he can you know he is oh so he can tell you. I've planned for their plan. But i fucking bubble. When he. I know he got ended. He got now by your. I got it over with this. Pelicans been on the street. Baseball upon the recent uptick in play. I no we still been losing games. I don't know how we we give them games away late but coaching is realistic. Realistically their push. What is there a real opportunity for the acc. Does that still apply agreement. We we should be thinking about deficit but almost you gotta push for some eat a plan game day see now. They don't go debuted on. Abc city they. They won they won.

"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..

"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..

"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..

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.
