The Return of Playoff Rondo
"So Bill Game One against Houston was Rozan rondos first game nearly six months. Can you break down everything that he went through with injuries? Yeah. It was interesting because this is a guy who has been slowly it feels like kind of breaking down as he's gotten older he had two broken fingers on his right hand last year his first year with the Lakers. This year he had a calf injury. He had an aversion fracture in his right ring finger and this is all before we get to March and the shutdown from the pandemic. So the Lakers are off for four months they go to. ORLANDO. Rajon Rondo is with the team their first practice inside the bubble Lakers guard Rajon Rondo has suffered a broken right thumb in. He's expected to return to full basketball activities in six to eight weeks, he's going to undergo surgery to repair the fact fracture this week. So he leaves the bubble has surgery. He's out for another six weeks or so the Lakers have a first round series against the Blazers Rondo, comes back to the bubble and is actually cleared to play for game three against the Portland Trailblazers, he's on the court getting ready. For that Game Rondo was listed as active tonight for the Lakers but was a late scratch with back spasms that happened. So, by the time, we got to game one of the second round against the rockets. There was kind of this sense of porcelain Rondo forget about it what level, but is he just going to be healthy enough to play and be able to stay healthy to make a contribution to this team? What does he had to say about all of these injuries he basically downplayed the injuries and said that these are the sorts of things that are going to frustrate. Anyone was very frustrating injury and step back I'm my career fourteen years have. Everything happens for a reason. Obsolete man says talks we. Still for the moment but the timing of this latest injury, the broken thumb and the back spasms I think particularly frustrating for him because this is a guy whose entire reputation and career is built on playoff performance on being a guy who really ramps it up in the postseason. Early, in his career uses a second your point guard with the Celtics out of Kentucky playing with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Paul. Pierce and he ended up playing an instrumental role. You remember the two thousand, eight finals against the Lakers decisive blowout game. You know he had twenty one points against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers twenty one point seven rebounds eight assists six steals to give the Celtics a championship for that story franchises nearly ovation barrage. You've seen it win Lebron was in Miami. If you remember game three of these conference semi finals Rondo dislocated his elbow. Oh. Wow. Left arm hyper-extended boy. Didn't see it on that I replay certainly. Saw It there. When back to the locker room pop back in came back onto the court to help the Celtics with game. Time is pad. Rajon Rondo expired the crowd rare Boston. We've seen it time and time again in his career in these big moments, it's not superhuman. But when you take a player who is seen as a high level, but not superstar player can a hitting that superstar switch when the playoffs come then obviously a legend starts to grow. And for him did have another injury right when the Lakers were expecting to get him at his best was extremely frustrating. But the timing actually ended up working out he made it back for the second round series against the rockets and as we've seen was really no worse for the wear the Lakers got blown out by the rockets in game one. They're all going to be in a good mood tonight as the Houston Rockets when it one twelve to ninety seven. But after that, they rattled off four straight wins how much credit do you think Rondo deserves further taking that series. So easily I think you could make an argument that without Rajon Rondo certainly that the Lakers wouldn't have off the next four wins, but he was instrumental in games two and three and four also, but specifically games two and three with his performance in the fourth quarter game too. He knocked down a late jump shot to kind of hold off the rockets and what was a close game Rondo two. Point jump shot that's Rajon Rondo with a bucket right there ten points nine assists for Rondo and then engaged three. He was actually the guy who is Lebron James on the bench to start the fourth quarter in what was a close game at the start of that period he either scored or assisted on Lakers I eight possessions of that quarter to help kind of turn what had been another tight close game into a rout for the Lakers. Rondo. He'll three and Rondo hits another one largest laker lead tonight Rondo has. Been Spectacular and a nice Lee for Kuzma. This is sort of how his reputation has been built. But this also is kind of out of line with the way he's played for the Lakers over his first two years. He hasn't been the guy who has come up in the big moments or been clutch. You've seen the decline of a player who's in his mid thirties and has been in the League for fourteen years, but there has always been this belief from the Lakers that when the playoffs come that he. Would step up and have those sort of vintage Rondo performances and so what you saw was sort of this return to form that the Lakers have always promised would be there and you saw not only offensively. But also defensively when Houston started to make runs, it was Rajon Rondo who was picking up James Harden full court and pestering him into turnovers they double team Arden and get a steal and another round of bucket. That's a ten old laker run hard was trying to go behind the back Rondo was right there. In both game two in game three second-half possessions where rondos picking up James Harden. The former MVP of the league, hounding him into a turnover, taking his pocket and going the other way for layup that completely shifted momentum and those both are Lakers win. So when you look at what Rondo did in those two games, I, think you could easily say that the Lakers could have been down two. Oh, two one in the series instead of kind of romping to a five game series victory.
Rajon Rondo is making Los Angeles Lakers fans believe in ‘Playoff Rondo’
"The Lakers won last night's game one twelve to one or two. They're now up on the rockets to one in this series that seemed like it was going to at a certain point tilt toward the rocket, the rockets that big game one, and then all of a sudden, you can't stop Markeith Morris, and now you cannot stop playoff Rondo. Rondo was brilliant. Last night was just get that out of the way twenty one points nine assists played really good defense James Harden some of these other guys F-.
No Look Pass
"The NBA Wmba seasons have started back up I've only caught one game so far, but like many basketball fans I'm looking forward to the tempo and intensity. This season will brink. It's a lot more on the line. Players are bringing that to the game. Don't get me wrong. I'm looking forward to some highlights to Dunks, lobs crossovers, but is something about that. No look pass that true finesse to the gain. Some of the greatest. No look passes of all time. John Stockton Steve Nash Steph Curry Arguably. Rajon, Rondo Carl Malone. It's nothing like seeing a player in all confidence. Take that ball up the court. Drive into the paint in dish it off with a no look. Pass finished the player scores. In the NBA Dunks are expected, but is that no look pass that catches you off guard, which is why many have not mastered it. Two things have to happen at were four. No look pass to occur successfully. Fars the passer has to have foresight as to where the recipient will be. This is what makes the no look. Pass so smooth is just not the no look, but it's the no look with the understanding and awareness of where the recipient is going. The recipient must be ready. This can go either two ways. They can catch it or they don't, and they don't. is nothing short of a disappointment, because if caught ninety percent of the time is buckets. The second thing that must happen in order for the no look pass to be successful. The player has to be emotion. When you're in motion, you're not stopped or stationary. There's momentum being exerted. And, being emotion requires you to stay focused on what's in front of you while also anticipating what's coming at you and for the big man holding down the paint? This is not easy. These guys are huge six foot eight seven feet now is one thing to run the baseline, but a completely different one to run the court trail the pain, not clobbering the man in front of you while possibly anticipating a quick dish. From the point, Guard So many factors to account for in a lot of trust going on there. Is Not easy, even though it looks easy, you may be saying tiffany. How does this apply to me? I don't play basketball. You're right, but you might be working two jobs to make ends meet or staying at home, juggling the demands of your kids or carrying the load of school. Whatever it is, keep going stay emotion. God the Ultimate Point Guard sees it all in every now and then. He might throw you a no look pass. Will you be ready.

Chris Haynes, Brown And Avery Bradley discussed on Golic & Wingo
"The Lakers couple of really interesting things here according to Chris Haynes a Yahoo sports they intend to usual brown as a point guard which doesn't really surprise numbers were ever lebron has been the ball always goes through right that's not a surprise but they also get a really good signing I think to me Avery Bradley gets a two year deal for just under ten million he is a really really good defensive player and the kind of player when you have lebron and happening Davis and Cruz Mar and boogie cousins these and now Danny green news are you know what I want on the outside they're building an interesting team right they are certainly what they threw together last year but I think everybody understood last year was kind of that waste year that this year okay they didn't get kawaii but they got at the Davis putting some pretty good pieces there and and as you said lebron playing the point is a point forward for our version I just changed it to a point guard you're the other point guards rot rajon rondo Quinn cook Alice Caruso the other point guards on the roster Alonso ball now is gone there but I do like what they're what they're doing and put the ball in the hands of lebron James let him lead the way you know I think it surpassed the low expectations we had for where they were going to be able to operate from this point like once you went all in on the kawaii thing and wait as long as you did I missed out on those true good waves of free agency one man they're gonna be operating out of the bargain bin but now we've seen a couple of names that we know that make a little more sense than last year which again lowered the bar because of how poor their free agent choices seem to be all last year well I remember last year we're gonna say grown else's zags now yeah I

Lebron James, Lakers And Magic Johnson discussed on 0 Show
"So another loss for the Lakers. They lose to the grizzlies yesterday J D one ten to one zero five. I'm I don't know. I feel like I'm almost out on this team. Lebron James calling out his teammates pretty much saying, look, we're not playoff ready. We we need to play with a better sense of urgency. But I don't know I after watching that fourth quarter. Well, first of all they had a seven minute stretch at the end of the third quarter going into the fourth quarter where they didn't have a field goal. Seven minutes stretch. And LeBron missing three throws again late. I don't get the feeling that this is just an everybody else problem. I think it's a LeBron probable as well this team is just not very. Good. Yeah. Well, listen, dear answering March under five hundred this year. And I think that you told me that fact last summer that the Lakers are gonna answer March with a below five hundred record. I would look at you like, you're crazy. You know, I didn't have high berry berry high expectations sustainable below five hundred going into lots full months over the regular season. That's that's pretty surprising. Right. So marches later this week with bronze tonight. Lot rather twenty four points, twelve rebounds, eleven assists. It is a triple double. But along with that we're looking at the five turnovers we're looking at the age of twenty three Smithfield. The late game free throws which has been a consistent problem for him throughout his career. So this is Bryan and about a week ago. He mentioned that he was going to go into playoff mode early. Matt this is gonna activated the motoring lock in. It starts from the top with a team. Like this very clear. It's the Brian James and everybody else underneath and I totally agree with you. This is not something that you can. Equal distribution. I it starts with LeBron James just accept starts with him. And I think so too, and you mentioned lebrons five turnovers the team total had seventeen against the over the weekend. It was the pelicans without Anthony Davis that that that what it one hundred thirty on them. So we said okay defense was the problem over the weekend. So defense was the problem over the weekend against the pelicans with Anthony Davis and offense was the problem gets the Memphis grizzlies team that had lost four games that are coming into this. And they're now twenty four and thirty eight. So if you're a Magic Johnson and you're seeing the last two games transpire. What are you thinking? Like, what are you thinking going into this off season? What's your first move? The off season. I would we mentioned turnovers there. And turnovers right now only hotspot sixteen seventeen a game. That's a lot for them, especially when you have a guy like with broad on their team Rajon Rondo water team. Those are the greatest passers ever played a game. Right. So you have those tuna team, and you're still twenty nine in the NBA turnovers. This past week. I think Magic Johnson it's not so much about what's going on now in the regular season. He wants to see how they do over these next few weeks entering April mentioned do get into the post season. Ben he can kinda judge what needs to happen or white before. They don't make the season. So around that time late March going into April into we'll see how they do that. That's what Magic's going to assess what needs to happen because obviously trade that. I'm Pat weeks ago. Let me tell you something if the Lakers don't make the postseason. I I have all the confidence in the world that Luke Walton be we're trying to get set. Go something that I have been told personally by anybody in the league that's just by complete one hundred percent on I believe that Luke Walton would be dismissed as head coach. If they don't
Kevin Durant: 'I Just Don't Trust' Media; 'I Have Nothing to Do with the Knicks'
"Well, we're talking a lot about Kevin Durant. And what happened last night Durant had not spoken to the media for eight days that ended last night the warriors smoked the San Antonio Spurs. And after the game Durant sat down and spoke with or you might wanna say spoke to the media here was Durant. Pushing back at a column in the ass by Ethan shrouds. You gotta do Ethan Strauss who come in here. Yeah. Just give his whole opinion on stuff and make it seem like it's coming from me. And he just walking around here. Don't talk to nobody just walk in here. And survey is something like that. And now. Yeah, pollen on me because I don't wanna talk to you about that nothing to do with the Knicks don't know who traded porzingas. I got nothing to do. With me. I'm trying to play basketball coming here. Every day actually about free agency is my teammates. My coaches roundup the fans about it. Let us play basketball that's all along sand. And now I wanna talk to you is a problem with me. Woman grow up. Yeah. You grow up. Moreover, I come here and go to work every day on 'cause no problems. I played it right away or try to play the right way. Try to be the best player can be every possession. What's the problem? What am I doing here until the grow up part? I think people would have listened to that and said he's mostly being reflective, and he's trying to figure out how to handle this tough situation that he's in with everybody talking about New York and him being a Nick. But then when he says grow up, and he says, yeah, you and he's literally talking to one individual, which is Ethan Strauss. That's a little condescending. And that's anger. And that's obviously frustration coming through in Durant. Just sounds awful, especially when he gets to that point of that comment. But he he wasn't finished here. He is on why he avoided speaking to the media. Why do I gotta talk to you? Tell me is that going to help me do my job better. Talk. I just don't trust time. Anytime. I say something is get twisted up and throwing out in so many different publications. Tried to tell me down my words, I say so when I don't say nothing surprising. I just want to play ball. I want to go to the gym and go home. That's all that a problem. I mean, how are you planning house a team plane? I'm done. Don't care about that. I just asked you. I laugh every time. I hear that the ending of that, you know, you don't care about that. I just asked you and good night storms off defensive angry. And I understand why he's frustrated I truly do when your name is all over the internet and all over Twitter and people are talking about what you intend to do. And how you feel without you telling people specifically what you intend to do. And how you feel it can be frustrating, but the defensiveness and the anger doesn't help. And let's remember that Durant. He's part of the problem as to why this drama exists in the NBA when he decided to go to Golden State. He helped this move along. This is not going to end. It's not going to go away. Reporters are going to continue to do their job. They're going to continue to talk to people ask questions. Ask durant. The tough questions. And his job is primarily basketball. But when you're the face of a franchise. He's one of many and Golden State. He would be the face if he goes to New York. Yeah. It's part of the job. It's part of your responsibility to have to answer some questions in every once in a while at least every once in a while, it's not going to be just about basketball. So that's Katie last night. The other NBA soap opera is of course, Anthony Davis. And where he's going to end up the trading deadline in the NBA is now just under ten hours away, three PM eastern standard time. We'll find out if Davis is still a pelican or not. And when I look at this situation between New Orleans and LA, I believe and this has been my belief from the very beginning this entire Davis to Lakers scenario was first created and then pushed by clutch sports, Rich, Paul and LeBron James. Lebron James is one hundred percent calculated some people try to act as if he is almost naive to some of these things he's not he's calculated. He understands he went back to Cleveland because he knew Cleveland had the pick that they needed to move to Minnesota to bring in Kevin love. He knew going back to Cleveland. He would be part of a super team. Kyrie Irving was already there. He knew how things were set up that they would be able to get love. And he understood that a LeBron Kevin love and Kyrie Irving trio would do some damage in the Eastern Conference. He also understood what was happening when he made his decision when he went to Miami. He's always making calculated decisions. There's nothing wrong with that. He's meticulous. He's methodical. And he's well thought out. So if you think LeBron had no part of this whole story, then I think actually you're the one being naive. He's cal. Rich Paul is calculated. And when you look at the timeline, it all makes sense, right? There was that dinner between Davis and LeBron then you add kyri publicly apologized to LeBron. Then LeBron goes on social media, literally singing, his heart out. It's a Kyrie Irving. Then you have all the Irving. Rumors. Oh, he might want to go to LA. You might want to go to New York. Then you have Davis come out with his list of teams his preferred destinations with really only one team with the assets that can make a deal which oh just happened to be the Los Angeles Lakers. And then the other night you had bench gate that was fun. Lebron has three chairs in between him. What's happening who should he move close to his teammates should one of his teammates move close to him? Where's Rajon Rondo sitting? It's been calculated by LeBron and clutch sports to get Davis to L A. And that's just it's obvious. But this off court game has not been one-sided. Here's Rachel Nichols. And Brian Windhorst discussing an interesting theory on ESPN's, the jump do you think that they were upset enough? I have no knowledge. I'm just throwing out a question that they were upset enough with what they have made clear they felt like was tampering and they felt like they were going into reach in after their player, and 'cause all this disruption in the middle of the season when they thought they had at least to this summertime. Do you think that they never intended to really engage with the Lakers that much? I kept putting out publicly all these trade offers. So that we saw last night it would ruin their team chemistry at least temporarily disrupt all their young guys make things miserable for this team. Is that possible? It's such as possible. It's what happened. I know that the pelicans put us let's go now the pelicans had a method to their madness. And the way this went. I love that theory take that theory injected into my veins, I love that theory from Rachel Nichols. The pelicans were upset about the tampering. So they set their part of this whole thing up saying, yeah, you know, we'll entertain a trait. Sure. Give us a call magic. Magic calls them every single time. He calls them New Orleans. Del damps the GM says nine not enough. But I'll give you this not enough. But I'll give you this not enough. How about this? No, thanks. Okay. Well, I'll I'll I'll also throw in this. I need more magic. I need more. I love that theory. Love it to try to get into the fabric of the Lakers in bother their youth. That's that's a juicy theory. And if it's true in Windhorst knows an awful lot as we know that it means that both of these teams are throwing food at each other. We we have a food fight west coast, east coast or more, you know, southeast throwing food across the country at each other right hotdogs hamburgers getting tossed, but the critical question the most important question. No matter how you feel about the drama who started the drama who continued the drama what if LA doesn't get Anthony Davis. What happens then? What if all this work by clutch, sports, and LeBron fails what if Davis stays in New Orleans what if Davis gets dealt to Boston on July first because Boston decides to trade Jason Tatum? What if

Anthony Davis Trade Rumors: Pelicans May Make Counteroffer to Lakers
"Anthony Davis says if feels like his time is now that he's given all he can to the pelicans. And he's ready to move on the all-star informing New Orleans earlier this week. He'd like to be traded said Friday that his intention is as long as he can is a member of this organization, but legacy does factor in this decision. Oh. Lexi. Goes good. I'm playing. Know. What is my legacy going to be? That's the younger AD. Anthony Davis senior telling ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that he doesn't want his son to play for the Celtics after quote what they had done to Isaiah Thomas. No loyalty guy gives his heart and soul Nate traded him. They did trade him for Kyrie Irving over by the way. Meantime, the pelicans are mulling over what to do with the six time all star as next Thursday's deadline approaches. Wold on the Lakers. I offer for Davis is underwhelming leaks. Sources league sources tell me that the Lakers I offer to the pelicans included cow coups Ma Rajon Rondo, Michael Beasley, Lonzo ball and a first round pick. And the Lakers offered have offered a few variations. Of deals, but but all of them have only included in each of them. A couple of the Lakers are among the Lakers. Several good young players. Just two of them in each offer and Rondo or land Stevenson are in almost every offer and essentially. In your starting point in these kinds of talks, especially for a player of Anthony Davis has stature would be most of your good young players and multiple first round picks. And the pelicans haven't got an offer yet. I'm told that includes more than one first round
What LeBron's injury means for the young Lakers now

"rajon" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"What he did best was see it and feel it and execute it before anybody on could figure out what he was doing. He has the highest basketball IQ, I have ever witnessed. I know. Magic's is in the ballpark it somewhere. It's hard to quantify that but I'm gonna give LeBron even a slight edge over magic. The point is the Lakers started to percolate and take off once LeBron said, you know, what I'm going to play on the ball in. It was in part caused with the loss of Rajon Rondo, correct? But in in larger part, I think LeBron member the cracks, quote, I almost cracked right when he gets to that point what what's the default there. I need the ball. Just give me the ball is. I know how to do it. He does he knows how to do it at the highest level better than anybody playing the game right now, he's still the best point guard in data ball seriously. I'm not trying to that's not sarcasi-. I'm giving. That's what he is. That's who he he was born to be. So the hypothetical here is anonymous Cousy advance gals just scouting the Lakers for other teams that are about to play them. They're seeing LeBron dribble. The ball up the floor as the point guard in Luke's over there calling out of play. And LeBron is ignoring that play because there are two kinds of play calls in basketball. There's that kind that's called as your dribbling the ball up to floor. And then there's the time out play play. You're going to run out of time out. I don't think LeBron would ignore that call unless of course, it was David Blatt who called the play from Kyrie in. Lebron said, no I want to shoot the ball. Right. Yeah. We're trying to get him about it. Well that got him. That was definitely the beginning of that in tasha. He was but in this case, LeBron if you call a play out of time out LeBron's get a goal along. With that. But I think one hundred percent of the time he's not gonna look over to Luke about. Dude. Whatever the hand signal lay it shouldn't get they have already gone over this and meetings. Should they already? Lebron no to a certain degree some idea. Yeah. But but again, look seriously, LeBron has twice the basketball mind that Luke Walton has twice and that's no disrespect limit. It's just LeBron James. I'm talking about. And Luke was a decent NBA player. And he won championships for good teams. We get that. And his father was a great NBA all time. Great. But still this is LeBron James. So the story Brian win her story also pointed out that that after a while Lou quick even trying to signal in place when LeBron dribble the ball threat because come on let him do it. And again, he's not always gonna call his own number. He's just going to get everybody in the right? He's going to call what he believes the right play. Sure that situation and plus Kipp where he's calling the plays for Luke at the end of the day. Most of these guys exception of Rondo that possess the ball head. Really one. They're young calicoes. Young Brandon Ingram Azzam, Josh heart is young. So all the guys that can initiate the young Lonzo, very young and all the rest of them. Are they qualifies cast off? I've been discarded a bunch of times by very stabby lookout. Look how LeBron his major even devel- McGee. At is absolute best has never looked like he looked this year. Agreed.

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs Bank of America, NA member FDIC, good morning, big climate news and numbers this week. Sixty four percent, that's the percentage of US voters in a Quinnipiac university poll who say more needs to be done to fix climate change and prominent conservative max, boots reaction to the national climate assessment. Open semis. His Washington Post editorial reads, quote, I was wrong on climate change. Why can't other conservatives admitted to that report shows how we're already paying for the impacts of climate change, and those costs will likely go way up Raj Rajon is the director at fresh energy and fellow at the institute on the environment. At the university of Minnesota. I asked him how climate change impacts our current and future economy this. So much focus on the cost of not doing things as opposed to order a cost to actually do things. So if we continued with business as usual here, so many hundreds of billions of dollars of costs associated with this. And that and at the end, it's so counter to a mid western work at the of rolling up sleeves since sort of coming up in the corner. So I think we should focus more on the costs of doing things and where the cost right where the benefits like and with opportunities are. So when you say the cost of doing things, give us some examples, we can think about the cost of mitigation and the cost of I'd application. Fortunately for us in Minnesota. We don't have fossil fuel. So clearly if we had a big fossil fuel industry that industry will face a cost of mitigation, which would be shrinking market, but then a costs associated with actual transition. Right. We have electric power generation, for example. That's that's on a roll market forces are gonna drive it. But. The only thing that's going to hold it back in the midwest. And particularly in Minnesota is policy that's going to be roadblock. So there's gonna be some cost to retooling the policy. There's gonna be some political inertia that we elect to tackle and clearly organizations. Like excel want to keep moving. They wanna move faster than the current framework will allow them to how about fortune five hundred companies. There are many of those based on Minnesota's we know how are they reacting to the trends we're seeing now in what the science says will happen in the next few decades, the private sector is way past debating on. What is causing climate change? Right. The impacts associated that the private sector is experiencing it, and is prepared to move a lot farther than public policy as being willing to move. So companies are a lot father. You see companies that are making commitments right here in Minnesota. The sustainable growth coalition company said we wanna make Minnesota one hundred percent renewable economy even Tate energy, agriculture transportation housing. Those all eighty s where the private sector can pay a very big role in transforming Minnesota into zero carbon economy. Let's talk about the cost that you, and I and the average person are already paying for climate change. How are we already paying for climate change? We're paying for it through health way paying for it through ecosystem services that are suffering. Whether it is recreation, or whether it is nature being affected in a way that it affects water quality, and it affects biodiversity so we paying for it. And a lot of ways that are not immediately obvious because so much of the focus on climate change has been about energy and about elected city and about atmospheric CO two, which is all abstract stuff. The stuff way paying for all stuff that very real to our lives. Roger John director of fresh energy and fellow at the institute on the environment at the U of M. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective today. Might pleasure. Thank you, Paul. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter.

"They don't wanna pull the band aid off the scab publicly. John's not going to say of a move off. At car. Giant going say, I'm moving off Eli manning, but tanking in the NFL looks like what the raiders are doing and what the giants are doing, which is we're gonna, get draft picks give up really good players. I mean, by the way, snacks, Harrison, the giants are really good player. Eli, apple was the first rounder Amari Cooper Khalil Mack. When you give up with a losing record and you give up star players, you're basically there's got to be a different word. It's not tanking. Its own haring. I don't know the word strategizing, that's that's a fancier way of what they're doing. Saying what they're really doing. But I mean, Khalil Mack. I don't know if that fits in that situation because that was at the beginning of the season. But Amari Cooper is Cooper, maybe. But I, I don't know. I also feel like someone like Khalil Mack is not a replaceable player. You're not going to get that in the draft. So I mean, I mean, I guess you could get in the drop down the drop it. Are you really counting on that and as a position of needs. So I, I'm not. I'm not a big fan of like, let's get all these draft picks you better. Be good at drafting then because that's what you're facing, the future of your fantasize on. So the follow from the Chris Paul Rajon Rondo saga continues, especially after Rondos comments about Paul yesterday being a bad teammate and Nelson. Other players and former players are taking sides, including Glenn Davis. He posted this comment on Instagram yesterday, saying, I played with both of them. CPA three is very bad team. Glenn Davis didn't like doc. Glenn Davis didn't like Chris Paul. And so remember there was there was all of that divide between Blake Griffin and Chris, Paul and Austin rivers, and the Andre Jordan, Blake Griffin. Kind of against Chris Paul because of the Doc Rivers situation here with the clipper k. k. call the clipper players who's done the best in the last year Chris. Paul also, Chris, Paul had to adjust the playing with James harder, but they, he went to Houston. They won ten more games. Got really outplayed the warriors. I don't know how much too. I mean, there's there's multiple versions of whether he's a bad teammate or not. But I do think his reputation amongst players, his not is not great. That's probably why no one. Well, it it is a lie fights on football. You're not pampered. Basketball players are pampered. A u. college basketball in football. You get barked at football's my whole life plan, football football coaches put on the gear. The shield is the star, even Aaron Rodgers like be quiet, don't talk publicly basketball. It's kind of like the elevations of the young man. Nike comes after you at fourteen and the you've come coach comes after you swag at seventeen, and then the college basketball coach. To stay for one year and in the NBA you can get coach fired. So when you get a guy like Chris, Paul, who is rough on players in the manning a lot of players just recoil they can't take it. Well, I would agree with all the things you're saying on that end, but I do think there is a checks and balances amongst players, and that's that's sort of element of what's going on here with Chris fall. Like Rondo doesn't just step to Chris Paul and punch him in the face because he just was tired of Chris. Paul in the game on Friday. There was a long history of build up leading up to this. And that's why I think some other players are weighing in on this and just coming after Chris, Paul and the situation finally big Lakers. You know that Koby Bryant worked tirelessly at his crafts, and a lot of that was in the gym shooting in the gym. And he recently revealed in his book that he took up tap dancing. No little Tom Brady extra work, putting in stuff going on here. This response them spraining his ankle. In the two thousand finals. He's on Jimmy Kimmel live and Jimmy Kimmel live and explained during the parents in order to protect your ankles. You learned to tap dance? I did. Why didn't we know this. Well, kept secret for obvious reasons. They make tap shoes in your size. You had to get a mate, had to get him back. Can't go to like store and be like, hey, y'all think they'll size fourteen..

"He's at quote, many of the players I've talked to question the coaches, accountability was the way the trades were handled that it's Bader bothering veteran players when what you say and what you do different things. There's a problem. One player who requested anonymity said, I've never ever ever understood why organizations feel the needs. It's hell the team that nobody's getting traded or moved. It don't understand the purpose of it. Never. Will you back yourself into a corner? You're almost guaranteed to have to then break your promise, a promise that you don't you do not have to make because you are in the decision making seat and it's a business. You don't have to promise anyone that they're not being moved. It's nonsense. The other thing is you can tell players a lot of things, but players know the truth right. I've talked to NFL guys. I've talked to NBA guys. It will ever players know who can really play. Okay. When you tried Khalil Mack in Amari Cooper, two of the top three players in that locker room. You can tell the players all you want yet. It's for the future, but the players are like, those are our best players. You can't be as players on who can play in who can't, and the team has no pass rush. Wow. Khalil Mack and I, that's why I always said, even though Khalil Mack was expensive, he would have been ten percent of your cap. Okay. And then your quarterbacks, ten to twelve percent of your cap? Okay. I can have twenty two percent of my cap on the two best players on the team, and they're both in key positions in their prime. I think that Khalil Mack move, forget Amari Cooper, that move resonated so negatively amongst players that now you're just seeing the repercussions of, yeah, you can't understand when you when a new coach comes in or new GM comes in, you want to establish a culture and put your imprint on things and you wanna move certain players out style all of that. But communication is huge and you can't go and trade Khalil Mack and then talk about you need a pass rusher like just doesn't even make any sense and everything that you're saying about players is true. Not only do they know who can play players, talked to other players go out publicly and say that something went down. One way. All they have to do is pick up the phone and call someone and they'll get, they'll get the other side and they're more than likely going to side with. Player because they've spent time with them. They don't know you. So the entire culture in the locker room is loss. Like what exactly what you're trying to establish isn't gonna fall on deaf years. You're not going to get rid of all the veteran players in the locker room. It's just a, it's just a weird approach, and the whole idea is coming in and saying nothing is going to change. No one's going to be moved. You don't own that anyone nor do players expect to hear that. I don't. I don't. I don't get it. Is there any less exactly have have whatever your goal is be clear off the business stuff. Coach rule exactly. Talk as little as possible. Finally, the fallout of the Chris Paul Rajon Rondo saga continues, especially after Rondos comments about Paul yesterday saying that there's a bad teammate and now players and former players are taking sides, including Glenn Davis. He posted this comment on Instagram yesterday, big babysit. I played with both of them c. p. three is a very bad again, me who's Glenn Davis. Glenn Davis's got all his issues to glint land like Glenn, but maybe Davis got all his issues too. So maybe Davis is one of the five guys in the league that's been trouble Rondos when one of the five guys, you know, you always say this who supports winners who supports loser Rondo is getting now supported by another guy that didn't like Doc Rivers, Doc Rivers didn't like Rondo Docker, liar. You very public. I don't know how I feel about the bad teammate thing..

"I was gonna let it rest. But now I have kids and I teach my kids to speak up for themselves and don't let the world the story unquote wilbon. Where do you stand now? You know, this is tough for me because I would say two of my five favorite people to talk to in this league over the past decade are, as you know, Chris, Paul and Rajon Rondo. They are smart guys. They've never particularly liked each other. Paul Pierce talked about that in the post game the other night, and I understand that their opposite numbers going at each other with a prize involved. I didn't. I didn't know whether he intentionally spit when I saw the the tape. I didn't know what to make of that. And I think you kinda with me on that. I didn't three or four five. I never thought I never saw him spit even when they put the arrow. I've, I never saw didn't know that. But I know Chris, Paul feels he felt what he felt on him. And so I look, I don't have to take sides here. I'm gonna tell you something else. I think it's okay for these guys go at it, their rivals. They don't have to like each other. One of the reasons the NBA I think is better early to season is because there are people out there playing with mitt, like this guy and the games are contentious compelling and with these two, so it if I had to side with one over the other, if I had to, I'd probably side with Rondo because I watch tape and I never saw anything like that. And I thought Paul was the aggressor sticking his hand, right? Did that league has gone out of it's way this particular leaf Paul to believe Chris fall by giving him fewer games out by trying to shine the most flattering light on poor weather. This has because he's the head of the players associated if that plays into it. I don't really know, but I think Rondo has identified that particular part as punishment where they try to make. Almost Torola, but we have to toss them because he thought, but for future questions matters more to us. Having covered all this stuff. Our whole lives. Yeah. Is this good or bad for the NBA. They didn't go into the stands. It was just among themselves and it was in LA, which is the center of the NBA universe. So for ratings? Very good, very, very good for rivalry purposes. Yes. Was that sport thrives on the exit door has barely close in Amari Cooper and already to speculation is turned to what the raiders should do. Derek Carr. Surprisingly, the some of us, Marcus Thompson is reporting the both the locker room and front office have questions about car and toughness there. Even questions about with Derek Carr was crying at to take on the Seahawks. He says he wasn't either way the bloom is off the rose guy. Youth thought was going to be a big quarterback star in this league. I did. I did car then be the next to get shipped out of Oakland. Okay. Your coach has a ten year deal. He has all the time in the world. He is clearly methodically deconstructing his team. He traded. Away. Khalil Mack great player, trading blame somebody else. Everyday rated away. He's very good player. I sitting here now. I believe he should trade Derek Carr tonight tonight he should trade him either the Jacksonville, which doesn't like it's quarterback or the New York Giants, which at the moment don't have the quarterback. They think they do. He should getting number one pick he should stockpile as he's doing these number one picks bet on himself that he can identify in the draft all these great players and go into Vegas with a very young, very new team. I think he should trade the guy and I liked Eric, that's very nice. The Oakland Raiders are back to being a dysfunctional embarrassing miss, and it doesn't matter what they do, whether they trade him or give picks. I don't trust even Jon Gruden to get the picks. Right. I don't. I think they will go in Vegas and they'll make a big splash..

"Yes, and there's no way out of it really if they would be sixteen point five million dead money which should be higher than the salary cap figure of any other player on the roster. So this shift before to Jacksonville, longtime, Blake, Bortles. Finally, Chris Ball and Rajon Rondo traded punches. In the fourth quarter, the rockets Lakers game Friday night. And Paul sat, Paul said that he threw the first punch because Rajon Rondo spit on him. Now, Ron night spitting on ball, but there's a new video that we did. On a little bit of spit escaping the mouth there. So both suspended Rondo three games, Chris Ball, two games and obviously burning Rondo started when you spit that. That's that you can't do that. I don't know that Rondo necessarily started in it. I think this particular beef has been going on for years and it finally just the opportunity presented itself to become physical look at Chris Paul, Chris, Paul's is when Rondo spit. What are you looking at me like that for? Did he did he spit or did he spit while talk? No, I don't buy that. That's not a lie. If you're trying to spit on someone, it's a lot more than that. Now Rondo as a history of doing this, he's chippy. This is what Ron this. I'm not going to deny that videos pretty obvious that he's spitting Bruder film air. It's got, it's got to the left back into the left. It's incredible this this, this really though I know that the NBA doesn't like this kind of fighting. This is really actually great. Especially for for this matchup and if they meet in the playoff, whenever you're in doubt, if a player did something, ask yourself a very simple question. Does he have a history of doing stuff like this? Yes. But whether he spit on him or not, it really doesn't. It. Well, if you're a guy matter, but I'm saying like this, this was going to happen at one point of the game or another. Anyway, like if you were watching the game, they were attributed entire game. Chris, Paul talks a lot people don't people don't pay attention to Chris, Paul dies, but and this is Rhonda. Like you said, history is a guy. You can't spit on me..

Chris Paul was saying Rondo spit on me whether or not that's actually transpired. We'll have to see if we can find some video evidence. But honestly, I did not see anything leading up to it out of the ordinary with either of those two men. Obviously emotions are on a high. This is like a party since about three this afternoon in the building. Was that line? I'll be honest with you Michelle at the early part of the evening. I was surprised at how subdued the building.

"This is the heard line news well dug in this endless quest to try and figure out what lebron james is doing rajon we met have a hint as to who lebron james may be playing with just slightly a report from hoops hype alex kennedy said several veteran players have told him that if the brunt james doesn't fact go to the lakers they would end up settling for a minimum deal in order to be a part of that team yeah i guess the question is who got you gotta be careful with how many old pieces you get right i mean that was their problem this year old dudes that aren't used to accepting those rules but do i think lebron would bring some vets in town you damn right he would i just i'm the lakers would be very cautious about getting rid of some of the young guys i don't think they think that ingram has it into a superstar but he does he is a is diverse skill senate both ends of the floor i don't think lonzo is going anywhere one because he's not valued as highly elsewhere but i think he can play with lebron james he's good at play with the basketball so you you'd have him and then if you have you know kyle kuzma josh heart you have the two draft picks that's enough youth and then you gotta get some vets to go with them because the vets make the shots in the playoffs i think it's reasonable everybody's just waiting to see what lebron does and i it feels like it's not gonna happen here on a friday it'd be a news dump friday story right it's something to happen maybe on sunday but more likely on monday july first big is sunday monday call returns i think that's it feels like that's when the smart time to distribute that information would be former cavaliers general manager david griffin he is now a sirius xm radio host he said earlier today he's hearing the lakers will actually get demarcus cousins in free agency and then they will land either one of lebron kawai or paul george haven't really heard demarcus cousins to the lakers you think that's smart especially considering the injuries coming off of well let's see markets has is not up until next he'll be could be wrong but demarcus cousins is coming off of an achilles tendon injury now look was having a really good year he has improved his game he has matured calls la home in the offseason so many guys do i've heard the demarcus cousins thing but obviously yeah it's coming up in a killys that's a huge risk take how'd it work out for them last time they had a star coming off and kill demarcus cousins is in fact a free agent right now a lot of people have been wondering with the dallas mavericks if they're going to get on the demars dhamar demarcus cousins sweepstakes or also that trade with de'andre jordan department demarcus cousins is you know how do you how do you play him against the small ball small warriors that that kind of becomes the question is does that work marcus because at a pop barks cousins the talent to do and it would make sense if you going to get lebron because he also needs somebody who he respects and maybe fears as the leader of the team you don't want him to be your leader but you do on your team let's wrap this up here with a little bit of nfl news everyone's favorite quarterback is looking like he may be the starter once again of course i'm talking about sam bradford their cardinals rookie wide receiver christian kirk toward the nfl network quote to be honest just with what the coaches have said and the way it's been looking and pretty sure sam is going to start of course one of the biggest stories in.
