Fresh update on "rondo" discussed on Big Fellas Basketball
"The answer to me. The back court of fox and halliburton is the future for the kings and these losses over this five game streak didn't come because therese was in the starting lineup. If lukewarm wanted to start moe than i think the move should have been to move buddy. He'll to the bench all around. These losses are just inexcusable for the kings and the team needs to have a bit of a gut check if they wanna finally snapped their fifteen year streak of not making the playoffs hooligans over the clippers after acquiring rondo from the hawks. The team's got on a four game winning streak and i'm curious what is ronald brings to the team. More than the on court stuff. It's all what. Ronald brings his leadership and championship dna. The clippers desperately needed that they have kawhi who obviously has won multiple championships. But he's never really been much of a vocal leader of the teams that he's been on and i think that's something that l. a. Really needed as far as on the court stuff. Rondo look really good in. Its first few games especially against phoenix. He had fifteen points on five eight shooting going three or four from three along with nine assists and it was a game-high plus twenty four for the team his ability to get guys the ball in spots where they can be successful takes pressure off of cohen paul george to have to create from patients and it allows them to be more efficient in their scoring after a stretch of games in what she struggled with scoring efficiency george looked dominant against phoenix with thirty three points on twelve of nineteen shooting and seven of nine from three. I don't think it's coincidental that with rondo. Coming in paul. George is just getting cleaner looks and his games a little bit easier. While i've been very hard on the clippers lately. I hope having a guy like rana with the team can study the inconsistency that we've seen in the past grits there some local things going on in the pacific division. Whatever the next few games looking like for this coming week we got four out of five of the team's playing tonight. The warriors will look to bounce back when they host the rockets on the second night of back to back the lakers head to brooklyn to face off against the mets sacramento. Looks to try to get on some kind of track when a tough match up in utah against the jazz and phoenix will look to get back to their winning ways when they play hosts to the wizards and then finally tomorrow the clippers. Look to continue their winning streak when they host the detroit pistons..

Even though a lot of them are sitting out. Paul george out of this game. Patrick beverley out of this game. Rajon rondo to this game. They're starting backward in this jackson. And luke kennard had a combined eleven threes. What happens when beverly comes back. Does he go into the starting lineup. Does canard come out more of a ball. Who has been impressing. Good problems for tyler. No problems for the clippers serge ibaka. His fashion stays on point as it did with the toronto raptors. Yes he does fashion. He does art as surge. Said with that bucket.

Because i can no longer make fun to them by calling them the orlando inertia because they traded everyone and they are going to be so bad when they next play which could be tonight.

Montrezl Harrell: Lakers wanted me more than Clippers did
"With the media yesterday for the first time since. Leaving for the leaving clippers for the lakers. The reigning sixth man of the year joining the lakers was a business decision when he was asked. If the clippers wanted him back he replied asli. It seemed that way. Does it shannon. Does this tell you. I think the biggest thing is that maybe The clippers treads didn't feel like the clippers made him a priority. He's like. I'm the sixth man of the year. And here we are a couple of days into it. You would like to think they probably had been having conversations with rich paul at some point in time and says okay. Yes we want to. We want to bring him back. This what we're looking look. This is what we're looking the rain that we're looking to pay. What are you. What are you looking for Maybe trades personality. Get when you come up. Like trees transplanting. I don't even know if he was drafted. But when you come up like he did scrapping and trying to fight. Play hard practice hard every single game. You bring hawaiian. Paul george in there and he thought their practice on the court in those guys are sitting on the sideline or those guys are missing game. That's gonna rub him the wrong way. It looks to me from the outside. Of like i said i don't know it looks like from the outside looking in skip. That's not gonna change and paul george. You the superstars moving forward. They're probably gonna take practices. Probably gonna take gave up and it was eager to move. Let tread go be a free agency as opposed to have that conflict in running back. So that's what it looks like meets get. I could be totally off base with this but it seems to me because we heard rumbling either. They upset that guy's missing with practicing when they wanted to guys playing when they wanted to and that rav some in the locker room. If i had to guess it would probably be. That would be rubbed the wrong way themselves. But this is a good deal for trae of you look at it trays serge. Ibaka and triple double t. Basically got the same deal. The mid level exception with a second year option with us a team or player option. That's what they got shooters. Got the money bretons. Look what he got. A boat on from sacramento. He signed that big offer sheet. Big skip really aig got didn't get the money because they're not shooting putting a premium on shooting the threes and scope. I like i like the lakers. Getting trans because i believe they're getting a guy. That's extremely motivated. He didn't play his best basketball win. The season resume. Let's not sugarcoat. He didn't play once he got to the bubble and maybe his grandmother. He had a lot on his mind. He didn't come back with the same ferocity that he had. We live because up until that point skip. He was a monster in when he came back. He wasn't bad but it didn't feel like in to him because it all it matters to him. He didn't feel like the clippers prioritize pill or they didn't send the they didn't give him an indication that they wanted him back as much as he thought he should have been wanted back he says okay. I'll make a business decision They got this over there. I won't like you like you say rondo. He wasn't going to have to move.

"rondo" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"That he had left the room. One don't want that to happen. He know the dealer with the goal and he was to leave the room. He was supposed to stay with us. So if you don't want that to happen you better stay. Why would he leave the room for more money in atlanta. When he's made over one hundred million dollars in his career already. And why would you want to back up trae young in atlanta when he took the fourth most shots in the league played his usage. Rate was the fourth-highest played the tenth highest minutes. You're nothing but the backup point guard. He averaged nine assist. It's not like you going to be a co starter. Would try to play to six one guys in your back. You're not gonna do the stop. What about the lakers. What about now. You're getting excited. We got that we got the twenty five minutes. Your sambi. she'll yeah he was your third. Most valuable player would not have won the championship without him. Clippers would have won the championship with. They ought to close the deal three times against the nuggets with rondo to settle down and get them home. I'm trying to figure out all these people that were telling me. Ethical wild won the championship in toronto. That he was the equivalent to lebron james that he could do all their. He's such a willing passer dot. I didn't realize he could pass the ball that well i couldn't. I didn't realize he can do all this and win. The robin needed to meet the road. You got a three one lead and they walk you down way to say. Lebron had rondo didn't have rondo jauregui bail. You got anthony you got. You got pair bail. You used to have casey be you. Don't even have him anymore. We give clippers may make some moves. I mean.
Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny calls on Trump to condemn poison used against him
"Navalny is speaking out as he recovers from a near fatal poisoning. Eight weeks ago. The Russian opposition leader is calling on President Trump to join other leaders in condemning a band nerve agent, which he says Russian President Vladimir Putin used on him have only spoke with Leslie Stall and his first US television interview since being poisoned with Chemical Nova, Chuck, I think for Putin why his using this chemical weapon to do both. Kill me and, you know, terrify others. It's something really scary with people just drop dead without Rondo gone. There are no shots, and in a couple of hours, you will be dead and without any traces on your body. It's something terrifying and Putin is enjoying it. The full
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music
"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

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. .

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.

Anthony Davis and LeBron James propel Los Angeles Lakers to Game 4 win over Houston Rockets
"It on the night where you had in any playoff game, which was a must win game for the Los Angeles Lakers, I know there are two games the one I know this sounds silly, but the Clippers already have three games to one of the Denver Nuggets. If you're the Los Angeles Lakers you could ill afford. To be in a knockdown, drag out battle with the Houston Rockets, and they went out there and they just took this soul away early, late and often, Rondo one on one against Jeff Green. Now they get a tan Thony Davis. Top of the key you go. Davis, with their Gordon on, Davis turns leans, shoots ahead. Rondo Rondo, running at the basket Alley Oop slam dunk a little risky. Through an alley oop off the backboard, and LeBron almost didn't see it, but he caught it in late and dunked it likely. I'll say What Plato find LeBron no doubt about that.

"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-.

"Inc. it is up to you to help us. Make the classics that we do every time we step on that beach. So thank you so much. We got a lot. I think to talk about here on Wednesdays. Know. Don's podcast will start with the Games. We'll get to the billy Donovan News will actually do a little beach tease because we have so many questions we want to get a couple into this one, but we'll start to western conference yesterday's Game Lebron and Rhonda. Sparked the Lakers to the one twelve, one, two victory over the rockets they take the two one series lead. Let me just get US started here. The biggest takeaway because it is Rondo playoff Ron, who is real said Anthony Davis, it's a real thing. This was a fun game lot of lead changes obviously, ties Lakers took over late but. Rondo I mean just was instrumental in that huge run that teno run there early in the fourth quarter, he scored eight straight during it hadn't assists on the other one, twenty, one point nine assists, and here's this guy making plays left and right in the fourth quarter of a twenty twenty NBA. Basketball game after he was written off for years after he's obviously been ridiculed for what? He can't do out there. But yeah, we get called caught up in playoff P and all yeah Paul George The this Estrin repeal that forget that forget it playoff rundle Israel is intensity picks up any contributes any shooting the ball, well, Lee and I know this I know you don't get any Toronto but you gotta even amid in Game Three he was a bit of a difference maker. Always, give it. Go I prize when he's at the playing the right way and he did that last night and he did that in the last game as well when he's out there being the guy who's shooting when he has to hit one of those crazy three, two couple there last night. Yeah and distributing the ball in the offense the why it should be distributed and then hustling on defense working hard playing hard doing those things it's no question. He was a fantastic play last night. For the Lakers he was just he he really did turn that game I think was the key to them I mean, obviously, Lebron was fantastic had twenty nine I think it wasn't the first half Lebron. So to set the time they bear they need guys from that role plies his second unit to be able to contribute and to be able to sort of keep the lead or to put this team in in a position to win and he was absolutely brilliant last there's no denying whatsoever so. When he plays like that, my opinion of him completely change because my biggest criticism of him in the past is that he selfishly unselfish and then he goes looking for his numbers I and the wind second. But that wasn't the case at all last night he has to take shots when he's when he's left open and I still do that the. Rockets and he's not from them down but also it's just his transition and the way that he gets everybody else he's looking for the is to get involved in to score, and then these not just gambling on defense and being lazy. He's actually really making James Harden work and and that's a credit to him and he's one of those guys and. I don't think he's a leader but last night he was showing some of those other guys how to work out on defense and once it defense is set in the the Lakers, they become very, very hard to beat so full credit to him, he was brilliant no question about it and the Lakers. Win this game because primarily because Lebron but certainly I think Rhonda was the Second Best Player last night. The fourth quarter, the rockets just kinda slow down a little bit even Mike Dan Tony. Said, afterwards, we retired in the fourth quarter and I think going back to win the small idea started. We all said. Can these guys go four quarters playing smaller getting beat up? Playoff series after playoff series, and then you sit Daniel. House. or who he sitting because of personal reasons, and you only really plays six and a half guys. And you see at the end of these games, their offense is pretty predictable and I think that helps guy like John Rondo. Rondo. Can Double really really really. Well, he was playing intense defense James Harden goes behind the back. He's they're they're doing a very good job of that. I think it's different when you got five guys. That are all touching the ball rather than what the rockets do I think that helps Rajon Rondo. Just sort of set in or when they're playing zone kind of set in and focus there and he was he was phenomenal. That was the guy that when you watch him play start to flash back to the Celtics as you start to think Cisco Hall of Famer is this to be the only guy to win a championship with the Celtics and the Lakers in NBA history he was that was it was cool to watch some little flashback because there's all this talk around the Lakers is Lebron ad. Could be the best to players going into any series whether it's against the clippers or whether whoever comes out of the East but who is their third guy? All this chatter at third guy not sure. It really matters who it is You know before the game but somebody does have to be good and it wasn't just Rondo Kuma was awesome in this game they've all sort of. Fallen into place there and it was it was cool. Even going down to the wire Roseanne Rondo gets fouled intentionally and has to go to the line a little bit surprising Frank Vogel keeps until the end the fourth where he placed thirty minutes because he's playing that good and then Rondo step hits these free throws I. do believe there is a thing called playoff Rondo and there's a thing called regular season. I truly do to what do you think trek? Well. Of course, there's a playoff Rondo there was a national TV Rondo he raises his game. When he knows more people are going to be watching but I mean Kudos to this guy, he basically didn't play basketball for six months he. returned. Late? To the bubbly picked up some injuries here and there, and he had a terrible game one we're saying, maybe you shouldn't play it all and then he was instrumental defensively in game two, and then he basically shut the door on the rockets last night in game three and part of the reason cosmo was so good I thought was because he was playing alongside Rondo and Rondo was getting him the ball. When he was open we've said for a long time that an easier way to beat the rockets rather than just isolating is to back cut and to keep the ball moving and you saw who's Starting to notice I. Think it was pointed out on the broadcast that the rockets do a lot of ball watching when the bronze handling the ball when rondos handling the ball and COSMO's doing a great job back cut and getting some easy layups. But this is this could be big for the Lakers. I don't think you're going to be relying on Rondo to show up and give twenty-one nine every single night but right every season, every postseason specifically Lebron James Teens end up saying we need somebody else who can create offense for us. We need somebody else who can make a play when it's tough for Lebron and Rondo can do it still. Sometimes, he's not going to be a super reliable, glide every single night, but he's still your backup point guard. He's still maybe your fourth guard, and if he's able to come in and run the offense for ten minutes here or there get some players, get some good shots for the Lakers. That's huge. Even if it means that Lebron does it need to be going down hill to attack he did a couple times in this game where he just went to the post, but he would with off ball sort of barrels way to to the posts because he's huge and like Eric Gordon I'm sorry as strong as you are you're no match to. Him But. Then Rondo has the ability to throw him a pass in there and he's so damn smart and he's so talented at passing I..
LeBron becomes all-time leader in playoff wins
"If you remember back to Sunday, Game two of the Western Conference finals. Lakers gave up 41 points in the third quarter before they were able to clamp down defensively, allowing the Rockets to score just 17 in that fourth quarter. Get on Tuesday. It would be a strong fourth quarter. That proves to be the difference for Ella. LeBron James wind up having a huge first half 29 points, but the Lakers were actually trailing at the break. L. A would hold the Rockets to just 18 points in the third. Turning things up defensively, one of the best defensive teams all year that turned it up the Rockets to 22% shooting in the second half. There's another turnover. Anthony Davis, with the steal handed back to Gordon, Front left drives past LeBron layup blocked by James from behind LeBron James with a great block. Gordon thought he was buying me ran down from the back. Another block for James on a runner by harden LeBron James, with two monster blocks 54 Covington to Rivers Wing left us with a rim up on underway Blood by James and the stick that won't count. It comes after the red light was lit. And LeBron with three monster blocks in the corner. We're tied going before the difference in this one. It was a 64 point first half With rockets. Scored 33 points in the first quarter. 31 in the second But just 38 points total. In the second half of the Lakers. Clamping down on defense would also Their foot on the accelerator on offense. Morris swinging Rondo opened three Ling right, Got another one playoff. Rondo is here tonight in Game three. Four point lead for the Los Angeles Lakers. That's 12 points.

Now, with a minute to play Rondo around the angle Street left side of the room past the diving Kuzma catches and lays it in over the front iron and the Rockets have a look to him that they know they're probably done with under a minute to play, and the short answer would be Yes, The rockets were done at that point. The game was here on ESPN radio Lakers would close it out when it by 10 1 12 102 Lakers taking a 21 Siri's lead Lakers out of 21 to 8. Run. To start the fourth quarter after as we heard, the game was tied heading to the fourth LeBron James 162nd career playoff victory. That's the most all time he spoke with TNT, do what it takes to win both the defense and I know I say that a lot, but it was just the truth. My teammates looks for me to do a little bit of everything, and tonight was another opportunity for me to help and I was happy. I was able to come through for us tonight. LeBron at another milestone to your resume, passing Derek Fisher becoming the NBA's all time leader in a playoff wins. I know you have said time and time again, you'll reflect on those milestones later. To play at the level you're playing at and achieve that milestone in your 17. What does that say about what we're trying to accomplish? It says that I played with a lot of great teams says that I played a lot of great teammates made some great coaches in Cleveland in Miami and now here in Los Angeles, you don't get those wins without teammates so on the coaching staff prepares and do all the preparation Behind the scenes video coordinators. The guys will help rebound the basketballs force assistant coaches that trainers the athletic staff on its own. So it doesn't happen without the support of castes. And it's why I'm able to stay here with this achievement. But it's all about the three organizations. I've been with calves, the heat and not the Lakers. Because without them, I wouldn't be in this position. Speaking of the way you're supporting cast played tonight. Defensively, particularly in that second half. What did you guys find that allowed you to lock into Rockets offense. We know in the first half going into halftime that we didn't play our best. Defensively. We allowed him to get into the lane. Without contest. We allowed him to hit some threes. What I'll contest are rotations was slow. So when we went to the locker room, we watch some film. And we had conversation right away on what we can do in the second half to get better and be better, and we was able to transfer it into the second round. Last thing I'll ask you about. I know Coach Vogel keeps on telling us That he was going to use the memory of Kobe Bryant to fuel this playoff run and continue to talk to the team about it. How have you channeled that to motivate you through this run through the postseason in this most unique environment? Then today, we just so we make him and his family proud, and that's all it's about anybody's ever step foot and put on the Lakers jersey we hoped would make them proud as well. From Kobe all the way down to everybody's ever played in Los Angeles have been a part of Los Angeles Lakers organization. That's what we're trying to do. It means the tradition here and it's our responsibility when loser draw toe hold out without most responsibility and utmost respect, and, you know, doctor Dr Buss will want as well. Loser draw. This one turned out to be a win for the Lakers by 10. They take a 21 Siri's lead, LeBron finishing with 36 points, 29 of which came in the first half. You heard him touch on the defensive adjustments that the Lakers made at halftime. As well. Then they came out and turned up the intensity on the defensive end Lakers finishing with six blocks Houston had one came from Russell Westbrook late in the game,
Anthony Davis Has Room to Grow
"GonNa Focus on the Lakers, which as an editor is near and dear to my heart because sharks picked the biggest red meat team on on on the table here. But they've been really impressive with us are there to one and Anthony Davis looks like probably the best player in the bubble thus far chunks. Why don't you leaders us through some of the things that have been happening with Lakers why think for the record this is called the impossibly good-looking persons corner just clarify. For. Their how dare sir? Okay so we're looking at the Lakers thing to me that's jumped out in the first three games is how they're playing when Anthony Davis playing without Lebron on. So that was been their biggest problem. All season is those non Lebron ad minutes because he idea was. Okay. If you have a D- then Lebron can rest he can get. His breaking it as time off, and they'll still be fine. But before the restart when eighty was out of the Ron, he was minus three and five, hundred, six, hundred minutes as those are important minutes Lakers have to win in the restart I mean obviously is a very small sample size but who cares where we're doing podcasts in the restart their plus night. Eighties playing without Lebron. That's just a massive flip on their whole situation and to me watching those minutes was set out to me I think number one. Not Having region Rondo. I think that really kind of low key killed their team because when rondos playing he has to have the ball right like Rondo can't play off the ball Swiss hole in the ball he's not really a threat to score someone's really guarding him and then on defense that giving you much either so like Alex the numbers when ad and Rondo without Lebron it was minus five and without Rondo they're playing Caruso and waiters with a d the floor is spread and the thing. Anthony. Davis. You don't need a traditional point guard Anthony, Davis give eighty the ball in the mid postals kill people right? He gets the ball then it kicks shooter instead of the Rondo. So it's like ADP without Rondo back great and the other thing too is eighty at the five. So they're going eighty Kuzma than like Greener Casey Caruso waiters whatever. Eighty s numbers at the five the year are insane. They're absolutely ridiculous. So cab. Looking at that with no Devellano Dwight Eighty has a usage of twenty eight shooting of Sixty six point six. Now base that means in English as eighties in the ball, like he's hardener Jaanus and he's been the most efficient player in the league. So if looking at those two numbers, there's only been one player in NBA history that had to be that efficient at that. High usage not staff like five years ago. So basically, when eighties at the five, he does a established about shooting threes he's basically scoring at will every single time I think long story short eighty more room to grow I. Think we're seeing that right now like leading a d. plan space given him the ball he's got levels still the go to get into them right now. Yeah I. So the biggest thing off of that, which was great I just wonder if their margin for error is too thin right now obviously the Lakers have been incredible. So let's get that caveat out of the way I think probably favorite if not among the favorites for the title. People like to remind us on the group Chat specifically Chris Because I don't think sharks was. One I remember that yeah. Where we pretty much we troll the Lakers after their first loss of the season and. Venture like the succeed but clearly, they've they've far exceeded those expectations. Great. Please don't ask me. But I do wonder as bad as Rondo has been at times. As much as Bradley is the fifth most important guy on that starting lineup at times I do wonder if the margin for error is a little bit more thin and you are relying on the cruise of the world on the Casey Visa, the world more than you would like to my wrong rob now I mean I'm I'm pretty compelled by this whole situation that sharks laid out like the idea of shifting some of those pieces around and unlocking ad in a different way like makes logical sense to me given his skill set this is. The Guy, who can you know Kevin O'Connor talked in in the restart this week about how? Bam. Out of Bio Converts Defenses Ad in the mid post has a similar effect where if you clear out, you give him space and a straight line drive past almost any big in the league like that's such a powerful thing that there should be a way to orient pieces around that. Make Sense I. Think I get skeptical is in that margin for error and it's in, you know if you look at kind of the core of these lineups. AD and CAL Kuzma, and Alice Caruso or kind of the three man anchor of it and in around that, there's a revolving door of guards. You got some Danny Green minutes you get some dion waiters minutes he gets JR Smith gets in Casey ep you got whoever they cobbled together in that minute in the rotation at those guys scare the hell out of me a little bit and I think you know when you flashback to eighty as a Pelican and where he was some of where they fell apart without drew. Holiday on the floor without kind of more traditional point guards on the floor which just not having competent entry passers not having guys who could get a d. the ball in positions to score, which is it seems like such an easy thing. But the thing I don't trust dion waiters to do but it is a thing. Maybe I do trust Danny Green to do it. You know like some of these more professional veteran level guys like that distinction I think is an important one and probably the difference between bubble seating. Games bubble playoff games, right where you're getting Jr's and the demons at least lower in the pecking order if not out of the rotation on a regular basis entirely, and then you're looking at these minutes where it's you know, Danny Green Casey P. and those guys and cannot work I. Think I. Think there's a chance that it does but I do get a little bit suspect just in the sense that once playoff defenses are really keying in on what this lineup look like and how it works what does that? Mean deep because you know Jaanus has had that scrutiny in terms of a big who handles the ball who's creating for space lineups like we know what that looks like in defense is know what that looks like defensive kind of just been dealing with these Lakers lineups without Lebron floor all year haven't had a lot of trouble with them, but they haven't hammered them either in terms of the the mechanics of how they work. If this starts working, then you invite that level of

"And it may, it may be a successful combination I mean. I'm Kinda inched. What Dion waiters some do? Jr Smith I. Know is GONNA shoot. Dion waiters can create a little bit more. And I'm I'm interested to see what he can do with some rondos minutes Rondo plan twenty minutes a game. Avery Bradley playing twenty four minutes a game, so you're basically replacing those forty four minutes with some combination of Casey, p and Alex Caruso and dion waiters. and Jr Smith. Right and so I think they'll be fine I think the Lakers chances of winning a championship. He and John Do Anthony Davidson Lebron James stay healthy and foul trouble if They can beat anybody. Yeah, and I think I. Think Anthony Davis is. The is the player that nobody's got an answer for clippers. No answer for him Milwaukee Interesting Right Milwaukee is is much more interesting in terms of being able to handle Anthony Davis, but in terms of the western conference I don't think anybody can handle Anthony Davis. and hasn't been able to all year. Right, which is why the Lakers are forty, eight and fourteen or whatever the record was when the season stopped. I think that. Because those two guys are the best like there's a lot of teams that have a one two punch. The Lakers have the best one two punch in the league. Yes, has the minutes go up in the postseason because those guys will be on the court most of the time. I think the Lakers are still in a great position. As a matter of fact, I think that's why Lebron went to eighth straight finals. Because once he got into the playoffs. You hear the term playoff. Rondo the really really. The thing is playoff. Lebron course brandon the playoffs. Nobody's been able to guard and and I. Don't imagine that will change this year. So that is if you get news. That Lebron and Anthony Davis are healthy. That's a good day. Absolutely absolutely I'd coming up next couple of guys have broken. The bubble have broken the bubble and another another. May have been thinking about it. that's coming up next for you mason. Ireland, seven ten. ESPN I seven ten ESPN. What is going on brand new week tonight? The L. AFC the black and gold will take on the Houston. Dynamo, you'll be able to hear that game on the Stream. Use the ESPN APP. And listen to the Stream, and and you can hear the game live with Dave dental calling the action. And the NBA bubble officially put together assembled down in Orlando, and we already have a couple of instances where guys have broken the bubble, John Now I don't know the exact circumstances behind the Bruno combat glow. Kabul Clo- Kabul Clo- bubble violation. Do you know exactly what happened with Bruno? Kabul Clo- I. Don't was it him or Rashawn homes that went down to pick up food from post mates. rashawn homes is the one that that walk through the lobby and walked outside and got us food from post mates, and he has now been suspended for not suspended. He has been quarantined for eight days. Dane in his room. and. Let Post Mesa leave it outside. His door would he'd been okay. I don't know if post mates is allowed into the bubble. If I was the NBA I. Don't think I'd want random delivery guy coming into the bubble. That would defeat the purpose of the bubble, wouldn't it? Yeah and they have like six approved restaurants that five of them are owned by Tillman for Tita. The owner of the rockets sure any owns like high end places like he owns Mastro's and places like that. So, but I don't know how. They actually get the food into the hotels where the players are now. Here's how. Here's how serious this is according to Bobby Marks. If, this had been already. The the seating games had started, so we're past July the thirtieth. Games are going on in the month of August, he says if something like this were to happen. There would be a financial penalty for a player breaking quarantine. Every game missed would project to roughly one percent of their salary, so the rashawn home situation would have cost him close to fifty thousand dollars for every game missed. During that period, and again that starts once the seating game start in early August right after July the thirtieth when the the Lakers and the clippers kick things off so. So it can be expensive. It will get expensive if guys break the quarantine moving forward, but were sean homes. is now going to have to quarantine an additional eight games before he can join his team. Eight days days I'm sorry eight days. So you know already. The bubble is tenuous. but actually I I think it's encouraging the fact that there are only two positive tests inside the bubble right? That's very encouraging. Yeah, and also thought is if the NBA doesn't pull this off or can't pull this off. The none of the other sports can do it because the NBA is following more rules than anybody. and it's so public. You know anybody that sees anything within this era of social media is putting it out there. There's one girl over the weekend that said Yeah. I've already been invited to the bubble, and then the Internet detectives went to work and tried to figure out who it was right and so I mean I think it's GonNa be turns out. Most people think it's Mantra Cerro now. Is it fair to you know why they think it's Mantras herro right because he follows her right so you're you always say you will never accuse a player of using steroids. If there's no hard evidence can mention that exact thing. There being. Accuse. MANTRAS Herrell based on that one piece of circumstantial evidence. All I'm saying is that he is being accused right, but you won't do it with baseball players. No, I'm saying he's being accused. I'm not accusing him He's being accused I'm I'm reading this headline? MANTRAS Herrell reacts to Being Accused of inviting instagram model to Disney bubble right, but by mentioning his name. You put it out there so if it's not him now I. Think There's another theory Lindsey curious what you think about this. I think. A lot of these girls, a lot of these instagram models. Are Trying to get their name out there. And this girl if she's trying to do this. House Gre-, underscore. She's not ugly by the way, no any way, shape or form. But Lindsay. Do you think ANA is putting it out there? Because now, people will see her. Her her instagram follows. Go Up. And it helps her brand that no one invited her into the bubble, but she made it up and now everyone's running with. One thousand percent that's. Just marketing herself. It's definitely a possibility. Because if look at her twitter feed, she re tweeted. Basically anyone and everyone who is. Even remotely mentioned her with this whole theory that that it was you know the shoes..

His announcement was confusing. you. Can we have the seeing? But we're still gonNA stand the air. If you want to listen to that, you have to stream it. Yes, streaming! And I know there's A. Pin, l., AFC, versus the Houston Dynamo. That game is supposed. Start at five o'clock. Welcome back MLS tournament. And we had Tom pen on actually week before last. John, talking us through exactly how they got to this point, and there is a bubble, their bubble is starting before the NBA bubble does. They've had some. There's been some misses in their two franchises have dropped out. And multiple positive tests have postponed game, so there's a little dose of realism, but we're actually going to get. An actual Los Angeles, sporting event tonight officially hopefully and you know I. Wonder I've been watching soccer ever since the EPL Kinda came back in, and it looks like they're. They're able to pull these games off pretty consistently. The the one thing is like what the NBA had today. You don't want you. Don't want any big stars testing positive. Russell Westbrook tested positive I. Yeah, but I don't think the news is as bad as it sounds. When you first hear it. If he follows quarantine, he could be back in playing for the thunder by the time the game star. Thunder out of habit. He's playing for the rockets. Yeah, I mean I you know I. Think it depends. It depends on whether he's got symptoms. Do we know if he's got symptoms I? Just heard that he tested positive. Enemies quarantined. Yeah. He's a symptomatic. Yeah Oh, by the way you're gonNA hear Lindsey jumping in like she just did and she's GonNa. Be on a phone. That's why she's going to sound. Yeah. No, it's not your fault. Because we only have so many lines. We already only have so many broadcast lines, and we need a couple of them to do that game to do that. Soccer game and streaming from Orlando, so so you'll hear Lindsey, but she's on the phone, and by the way the game is apparently on F s one if you want to, if you WANNA, watch the game. Got It. so we do have that coming up for you There's news out of the bubble. All kinds of news out of the bubble we start out with those positive tests the the one thing. Of the people who have of the players that have flown in and are actually in the bubble. They've only had two of three hundred twenty two players since arriving in the bubble tests positive, only two, which is like point, zero, zero zero six percent, so that's actually a pretty healthy and encouraging number. In terms of the that are actually there now there are still some guys. Missing apparently showed up today. Collided immediate availability today, so he's now. In, Orlando. I don't know if James Harden is in Orlando or not yet. There were two rockets him in Russell. Westbrook both not at the by the way doesn't necessarily mean. He's got corona virus either he's he's tempted positive. These guys are operating on their own time schedules. The Big Stars are anyway. But? I guess we should really start with the loss of regime, Rondo and what it means for the Lakers. Rashawn Rondo is is a guy who is not the most popular guy with Laker fans He is certainly Excellent in terms of handling the basketball. A bit of reliability defensively but they are definitely going to miss him. They're getting thin in the back court now with Avery, Bradley opting out and resign Rondo gone for sixty weeks. Okay, so there are several things. UNPACK here with Rondo. Number One. You point out that a lot of fans aren't in love with Rondo. Because he used play for the Celtics maybe because. Alex crusoe has better as the biggest reason well, and he's been a lot of teams recently, but I can tell you that. Frank. Vogel and the Coaches Love Rondo Ray love not like love him because they feel like he's an extension and the coaching staff on the floor, so they'll feel like that's a bigger loss than maybe some fans will feel, but let's let's be totally honest about this. Do you think mace? That without Rondo, the Lakers can get through the first round of the playoffs through the first round of the playoffs yeah. Oh, my God! Yes, okay, so they're gonNA beat Memphis in the first round. Them like a drum. Yeah, okay without Rondo Yeah. Rondo will be back after the first round. Right. And Okay so that's the best news if you're a Laker Fan. He'll. If it takes six to eight weeks, seven weeks would bring him back right after the first round, so if you if you believe in and I agree with you if you believe the Lakers are GonNa. Get past the first round regardless of whether they have Rondo or not. Then the good news is, he'll be returning beginning in the second round. The other thing is I think people forget because they hear Avery Bradley not their Rondo, not there. They worry that the Lakers are getting thin at guard because they've lost two guards in the rotation. I think people forget. Lebron's playing point guard sure Lebron leads the NBA in assists so. What you need, but it's hard to deny the fact that they're getting scenic art. You wait a minute. What you need. Rondo for are the minutes that Lebron is not out there playing the point right well, you also need guards to defend the other guards right, but that's not what you would use. Rondo for no, not what you would use Rondo for probably what use Avery Bradley for sure. So I think that they can sustain this I think that people forget to that Lebron who's averaging thirty four minutes a game. This season is probably GonNa play closer to forty. Show is Anthony Davis and the postseason. So what worried about here is? Can the Lakers exist without Lebron the court for eight minutes. And I think that they can now going back to your original point if they got another injury if Quinn could help but. I Dan waiters is probably GONNA play now. Smith might play now. Yeah, JR, Smith might play I mean it may create opportunities for guys to get into a groove and a male to alter the rotations a little bit..

"Lakers guard John Rondo sixty eight weeks with a fractured thumb. Lee Rondo out, we know you love Rondo. Is this news? Well it's it's a blow to the Lakers. Of course, because Avery Bradley and other garden slightly different position doesn't really play. The point got. He's also outside the back court. Depth is is certainly going to take a little bit of a hit here. Is An interesting one because the Lakers were clearly looking to try to get some support for that point, God spot tried to sign Darren Collison earlier in the season didn't really work. So I don't think they have complete faith in Rondo, but the fact that he's not GonNa be there for the most of this resumption is going to hurt them a little bit, but when you have someone like Lebron, who can contemplate point God? We've known he's done that in the place in the past. You've got a fairly good option there. And Caruso obviously he's going to be more minutes for him as well, but I think that's the thing when you when you announce to plays down, just means these extra. These guys are going to have to play extra minutes, and that could potentially lead to some more injury, so it's a blood is GonNa Mission for sure just to have another body at there, but in terms of whether or not, they can still win the championship. I don't think that really changes. I think they're still at their best. That, they're still clearly one of the favorite out of the Lakers, the Celtics and the excuse me the box and the clippers, but It's going to be a bit of a blow to the official. I don't think this is really. All that newsworthy it's unfortunate and John Rhonda would eight minutes as Lewis and it'd be nice if this happened for the Lakers, before they got to Orlando and they could just potentially find a another body if if Rondo was out for if they knew he was out for a long period of time, but at the same time he could be back for the second round of the playoffs. Yeah, they can have a problem finishing off with it's the Memphis Grizzlies or the Portland Trailblazers without Ron Rondo. No, sir, even if it's the conference finals, they should have if it's eight weeks. The the the length of the longest that John Rondo could be out six to eight weeks here. He would be back for the conference finals against the clippers yeah. We're pencilling in the clippers the Lakers right now i. don't think it's an issue. Lebron is their point, guard and contiguous caldwell-pope. Stan's GONNA stand out there in place of Avery Bradley and Danny Green is GonNa start beside him and outs Caruso. Quinn Cookham can come off the bench, and as we said, they're looking for Darren Collison to have a guy who can, who can shoot I mean. That's the primary focus. I think for their backup. Point Guard. And that's why Rondo probably wouldn't have got a ton of minutes. You know down in crunch time because playing alongside Lebron ad we've seen. Lebron needs shooters around him and Rondo. Look at the percentages. Sometimes, they're good. But Yeah. He's not an Oscar, so is gonNA step up. I mean that's I. Don't think it's really really much of a worry I. think Bradley's a bigger one because they don't really have anybody to guard little guards. A Bradley would be that guy if there's a quick little water bug out there that they have to guard, but I don't know I'm not that concerned. You concern skates well. I'll add this I saw Kevin Pelton right this. He crunch the numbers per cleaning the glass, and there's a theory that maybe Rhonda's injury could actually help. The Lakers play more effective lineups because the Lakers were minus six point eight net rating with Rondo on the court. That's the worst of any player who was seen more than four hundred minutes this season. That, said. Playoff Rondo guys was a real thing. and. Let's go back in time to win. That was. Way To the two thousand eighteen with the Pelicans we still in playoff Rondo. Home on. Twelve point two assists per gamely in. The first round I mean he was good. Okay? Yes, I did better than. Look. He played well against the blaze question that he. He was instrumental in that series upset of the Blazers, but but the the assist numbers I like. Run as is about himself. They're not about helping his team and he's always stuffing his own stats. That's there's no question about that. He's done that for his entire career, but I heard. Rondo was actually asking the League to get playoff Rondo in the back of his head I. It's real, but also. Wanted Tonight. All you can, but it's legit real he. Plays better. Yeah, well, he there's no question. He tries hotter in the playoffs that that's that's undeniable. And that upset again good against the blazers, but then what happened in the next? Where was where it was playoff Rondo in the next round? Sure you know that that's my point is like. The he ten years ago, whenever it was for the Celtics, and he had those incredible games against Lebron Lebron, he was great, but the play of Rondo myth has carried on significantly longer than it ever actually lasted. It wasn't. It wasn't as a low Rondo was. Close to winning MVP of the finals or anything like that I mean he had some good Games. No doubt about it, but. He's kind of carried that reputation. He's he's. He's dined out on that for long, so let me ask you this. In a close series. We're into game six and seven. It sounds like maybe both of you that you would trust Alex Caruso over playoff Rondo in obviously you know in a in a must win or a huge quarter a huge moment in a game. That's who you would side with after a what you assume is like a wash Toronto at this point Iskra. Yes well. I think the pecking order is probably Caruso wouldn't even be starting though like if. You're talking about like late third quarter minutes. I mean. I, I probably wouldn't have either of them on the court winter talking book on the end of the fourth quarter. But Yeah I'd probably pick out. Play more defense out there. Who are the Lakers five? Let's say in a crunch time. Well, we've seen Lebron ad and then Danny Green is definitely out there, and it's probably contagious caldwell-pope at that other guard spot because he's probably playing defense better than anybody or talks to her so and then. It depends on who who's the big guy if you want out there or if you're going with Dwight yeah, I mean that's an again. If they need a basket, then I don't think Rondos on the court. Because Lebron sort of can just take over the point guard, and he needs accused or a Caruso or whoever's out there because he knows it impossible to. To him and I can shoot and that's one thing. I've never been able to address in his career the fact that he can be a spot up shooter because he can't shoot. Any weren't shoot and again. That's why he gets all these. Gordon numbers of assists because he often passes up a shot that he should take to try to get an assist. Enough that. It's. Never GonNA convince them. Listen I. I will admit in that series against the blazes. He was excellent. Question defensively is great, and he has had his moments undeniably. But I also think he. He gets a pass so many times for like when he's like. You got to shoot that man. You're open the shooter and he won't drive in, and he'll try to get the easy cheap assist to somebody else, because and sometimes at work, but he also has an enormous amount of turnovers and bad plays and bad passing that situation for over passing. The Lakers have enough to that depth, and he was good on those Pelicans teams because drew holiday could come off the ball a little bit, and not have to bring it up every time and play defense. Play his ass off on defense to stop Damian Lillard and CJ mccollum. They did a great job for four games. It was kind of an anomaly was just a terrible matchup. Then Rondo in that that second round. It was too much. Rondo and the shooting stopped. The the good shooting stop the the actual attempts were still there, and and then things sort of fell apart it's..

"About twenty five minutes tonight. Rondo plays eighteen to twenty minutes a night, so that's forty five minutes that we've lost. Avery with a starter Rondo comes in with the second unit, and he was one of the few guys that could get the offense going, and that's the. That's something that Lebron James has with in his playoff career that when he left the court finding someone that can initiate office. They could keep the offense flowing when he sat down. And so skip. This is going to hurt the playoff. Rondo skipped his real. He's one of the few players that once the playoff rolled around his points his rebound. Doesn't numbers. Go Up, there. Bear few people that can actually say that come playoff time when the Games are heightened when intensity is heightened, and people are playing for keeps his number increases, so it's definitely going to hurt I. Think the thing is now, so you're GonNa? Add call pope to play a couple of extra minutes. You'll ask Danny Green. They did add JR Smith and Dr Waiters so I. think that lessens the blow somewhat, but none of those guys what we call point guard position. That's what Rondo Rondo is an old school point guard Rondo as a Jason Kidd John Stockton type of a point guard. He's more looking to distribute basketball's than score the basketball now. He was taking some threes. He can't get to the basket, but that's really not his game. His game is to get everybody involved in the offense so skip. That does hurt. Says he expected to be back six to eight weeks of meaning beer radically, he could turn a return leg around the playoffs. Get, but. Is Not, looking good, and if I'm not mistaken skip, he's hurt this. I don't know if it's the same hand, but he had this injury before so this hurt. This hurts a lot. We will be deterred. A scaled back to why hearsay ain't stop stopping us now, we. we, we don't do you. We're not in excuse beers. We we get it done. And don't is not not. So is getting done even short handed. So Elliott here. Mr Shah Words I. Call You Shannon Shar. Haven't you told me for four straight years that your man is the goat, and for four straight years I've waited to get struck by lightning drive through the ceiling. Because you. You can't go there when we're talking about that man in Chicago that goes Lebron Shoe. Okay, so if in fact he is the goat. How could you be so upset about the loss of an Avery Bradley? Or Rajon Rondo, how could you really care about two guys who are just guys who were equivalent of yard, chickens and pig? There they're Barnyard, chickens and pigs when it comes to the goat, so in other words you saying they're just let your garden variety. Just lay there both garden variety, and I will make this case right off the top. I will give you avery Bradley I will not give you Rondo I. DO respect, Avery Bradley and we'll give you. It's a much bigger loss than Rondo because Avery Bradley. Bradley was a starter. Avery Bradley has made the all defensive team twice in his career. Avery Bradley was the difference maker in the one game you did win against the clippers when he made six threes, and he made four just in the third quarter, while Lebron was scoring a grand total of zero in the third quarter, and he tilted the playing field in favor of the Lakers. So that guy, you might miss quite a bit this guy. You will not miss at all because we're talking about as you just detailed the backup point guard correct. Why should the goat need a backup million? No seriously okay. Let's talk about the real goat, not the phony goat. Go Back I. Dare anybody out there right now you can google this. Go back and look at the roster of the nineteen ninety eight. Chicago Bulls and show me the backup S G as shooting guard. Show me of all the players list on that roster. Who else was in s besides that guy you know? How many were S G on that roster? None? There was no other listed shooting guard on that roster because he did not need a backup, he did not have a backup. Nobody ever even thought about well. WHO's GonNa come in when Michael Needs Arrest? He didn't need a wrestled other words. If I just WANNA make sure I'm hearing you correctly? He played forty eight minutes. Every game every round of the playoffs. He played forty something every game and in the game of his career, the really the walk off game of his career game six, eight, Utah One thousand, nine, hundred, ninety eight. We saw in the last dance just recently on ESPN. In that game. He played forty four minutes. He scored forty five points that included the steel that led to the game winning jump shot over Brian Russell at Utah that just opened and then closed the mouths of all the UTAH. Okay he played forty four minutes of that game, so the other four minutes they were playing with four players or did they have someone to come on the court and feel that role. Nobody could fill that role. But they would let Scotty tried to bring it out and play. He led the team fist every. Championship. They won de. Let them what do you mean? They didn't really have a point guard because everybody brought it I'm going to cry for brought it up. He was considered Scottie Pippen was considered the point when you know that he led the team in assists every championship they want. That was not Michael that we've got a just want to remind everybody that Michael Jordan played eighty two games all eighty two nine times, and he played eighty plus games eleven times. Lebron. James has played eighty two games one time in his whole career and yet now is his time because he got the all time basketball break the basketball, God said let there be championship number four for Lebron. James here, Lebron, we're going to hand you an unprecedented five-month break before you have to play another game as your season winds down..

"But but this time he was taking and making big shots at one point. He missed it three and the rebound came long right back into his hands. And he just stepped right into another gory and made it in. That's not the guy we saw last year. He would've backed out of there on that one passed off to somebody else. So he has twenty three points, and he played thirty nine minutes in to your point Lonzo plays with LeBron LeBron has to play with Rondo Rondo is going to run the show, and you can't have Rondo sitting on the bench because he's gonna make way. Right. He's just built like that. And I'm not condemning just who he is. He thinks he's I will bet you if you have a lie detector, he thinks he's a better coach than Luke Walton. He knows more basketball. Well, you can't stash him on the end bench and say, well, we'll wait and use you down the stretch. He's he won't sit still for long Alonzo libra. Throw him the ball. And he can make Rondo you what you're gonna drive and kick the ball to Rondo that's not the other way. And so that's why I think he works better wit lebrons because of the bronc and Dr kicking the Lonzo he always gonna make it. But I thought in Florida last five games give score double figures. So he's gaining confidence. Lonzo and LeBron says you can see it starting to click. He's starting to turn to get out on that curb where oh, hey, I can take the shot. I think really enjoys playing I didn't come off that way. But you know, day Fisher made a very interesting point and say Leb Rondo head the lump Rondo Lonzo had surgery in the offseason. They weren't sure. How soon he was gonna come back? And how healthy he was going to be once he got back. So they needed someone because remember they said they didn't want LeBron taking all the point guard in Hamlin the ball exclusively. So they had to get someone that if you're gonna take LeBron off the ball and he's out of the ball game. Yep. Who can run up, and that's clearly Rondo Cain. Yup. But in the. Process of doing that Lonzo came back quicken than they thought he was healthier than they thought. But so now you got Rondo on the roster made eating in the lonzo's minute. And it's also eating into his confidence development in to your point. What did Rondo do game number one in game number two at Portland on opening night? He had thirteen points in eleven assists, and then against Houston and the home opener he had thirteen and ten assists. Well, then he showed you I I can do this. So now that look like a strength. And I think it's going to become a weakness to have him even sitting on the bench because you watch how quickly lonzo's minutes drop. And then to your point watch how quickly confidence drop this is a sorry situation. Well, let's go to the Lakers are back home to. I mean, they needed to get on know, we gotta showcase out. We gotta showcase outrageous piece. Eighty really did you guys see what is I on Williamson? Did it was an. We're going to show you. Amber final topic of the day Duke blew out Princeton yesterday, but everyone is talking about Zion. Williamson Zion added to his highlight reel with a huge block shot. It was so crazy that he jumped so high. He hit his head on the backboard when he blocked the shot, so Shannon. How impressive was this is very impressive. But we've seen guys able to jump this. Hi, but nobody decide guys two hundred eighty five pounds and he has a forty plus engine Birtles skip. And what makes this so amazing of this block is that his teams up twenty points, and he still has the desire to not not on my watch. No, easy buckets. And I've never seen like I said he reminds you. He he reminds me with his athleticism and his leaping ability. Don, Kim, you remember Shawn Kemp do or the little taller, but he had ups like this. This kid is phenomenal. He's not LeBron James let him be Zion Williams. But he's unbelievable skip that was. Ordinary. But are we sure he hit his head on the back? Boy. You hit into his shoulder. Right. Didn't his shoulder hit? I it looks. Okay..

"None of that. He missed layup. Power through somebody's give he ain't give you the almost, you know. You know, just what you see is what you guys five steals last night five eight assists last night, six more rebounds. I've told you before I'm saying this last year as he matures physically could someday he average a triple double could it'll be in the teens. He'll average fifteen points, eleven rebounds, and twelve assists. Something like that. But but again could he do Jason Kidd triple dose for all year? Yeah, he could. And the thing is get base should be a top five assist team. Because you have you always going to have three great ball handle on the court at any given time. And at least two Rondo can handle the ball. Lebron can handle the ball. Lonzo can handle the ball. All of those guys are high assist guys. So you should be in the mid twenties on every give a night. And if a just right like Phoenix, you should be in the thirties. But they got a lot of guys that can mishit offense who's making take off and go, Josh heart land, Stevenson dance. I live gonna have this day. Oh, he would kill you. Hated that guitar legend when you've Indiana, but he was doing a you. Remember that place get he feeling good about himself. He lost the ball. He got it back. He lost it again. Got it back through a shot at one of the ref to bail them out. Now, but he was unbelievable last night. But I believe Lonzo should be moved into the starting lineup until the until so do I so what shocked me on opening night at Portland was that Luke Walton made sure that Lonzo got nineteen minutes. Now Rondo played thirty two minutes. Orlan and he was good. He was driving force. Right. But nineteen minutes for Lonzo. Remember coming off arthroscopic surgery. And so he had some minutes restriction. But then against the rockets in the fateful brawl game. It was thirty minutes for Rondo to twenty six for Lonzo. Remember, he got tossed. So he didn't get to finish at thirty four minutes because that was four thirteen left. Remember, Lou won't say Lonzo is gonna play somewhere between ten and thirty minutes a night. He did will be voting for thirty thirty three thirty three last night. Why not which brings us to the quandary that will get dumped on Luke Walton head. How do you keep Rondo happy just as? Pure backup. I just don't think that direct deposit. These should be happy. We try to win games. He's built like guess what? He going to be like that. Because we listen the guys are in playing times give he's showing he can do and he can play up the ball. What is Wanda going to do if you're going to allow LeBron to be the point forward moving forward? And I believe a lot of it will be him being the point forward. What does Rondo do? He doesn't play well off the ball. And he doesn't play all that. Well on the other end either in Lonzo can really. Yup. Yes. And their commitment to defense at Phoenix. And last night, it was pretty impressive. And you know, what I like skip when LeBron James check back in the ball game. I don't know if you noticed this because you don't have fold full K D. I got one of them. What LeBron do he pointed that joker? I did. He got he will he's going to have to guard him. He's going to take the whole. If you don't do that. The mere fact you said he doesn't play anybody. Then what did Joe could do? Well, it's just his man. He's point like I got the five guide. He'll K. Yeah. I got joker. Did did you fail about five times? Do not back down back down back from down. Then just joke with him. Got no breath. Okay. Wrong brick. Lebron a broad? We'd be able to to grow bolder grail. I think he got on the vibe. Michael Bey was no right off skew. Yeah. It's only one that work out. I didn't say. Out work out hard tunes help. They don't need. No hail God-given turn up.

All you gotta do is close the deal, a twenty three all with the field goal, and we're aggressive, play, conquer help to made a sort of feel go, but okay, but you know what? I think they did. Call aggressee place. I think he took the underneath routes twice they call past plays and their receivers. Go in deeper, run deep Arauz, but they got in position to do what you have to do to close the deal to get to overtime. So I don't have any problem with the play calling. At least they threw it. They didn't run it three straight times what it couldn't run it. They wouldn't. They wouldn't run as what they ran the last to set up the feel.

That's why you look in a way you're trying to make like you didn't do it on purpose and you did. So it's no question in my mind he spent on.

All you need to know about Chris Paul is the pelicans and the clippers got worse when he laughed and the rockets got better when he arrived, and he's always gotten along with his coaches, Doc Rivers, and Chris Paul the reputation was players resented how well they got along that Doc Rivers, and Chris Paul were too close Roanoke. Can't get along with anybody Rondo couldn't get along with Doc Rivers. He couldn't get him out of Boston fast enough. He couldn't get along. With Rick Carlisle in Dallas, Rick Carlisle, I covered in Portland, maybe the nicest guy ever met in pro sports. Rick Carlisle's, the nicest guy in the NBA. Everybody loves Rick Carlisle, Rick Carlisle could not get Rondo outta town fast enough. So there's a big difference between demanding Chris Paul's demanding. He was demanding Blake Griffin. Hit your free throws. Learn to hit a three Blake Griffin. The Andre Jordan be in the right place at the right time. That's demanding Rondos. Docking to get the benefit of it out in this fight. He's not gonna get the he's not as good as Chris Paul. Chris Paul has multiple examples. Raise left teams have gotten worse. Enter team they got better. I mean, New Orleans was a garbage. Chris Paul ends up in New Orleans. They have their best years leaves the go into the tank clippers were embarrassing for years goes, Los Angeles, Clippers aren't embarrassing beat the crosstown Lakers rockets were kind of like plateau. Oh, he goes over to James harden. It won't work. Oh, it does. He even got along. With James harden? Who's a guard who shoots a lot? You can say what you want about Chris, Paul. But he's worked with Doc Rivers. He worked in New Orleans. He's working with Dan, Tony. He's telling me who Rondos work with. I mean. Tell me. Nobody that's not demanding that's difficult. And by the way, LeBron and Chris Paul are best friends, and and you just through LeBron's best friend under the bus. Not good. That relationship. I guarantee you. Is going to be strained from this point forward. Chris Paul's got a lot more friends in this league than Rondo does. He's a better player than Rondo is. And that goes without saying, and by the way, rob Parker brought up a very interesting point earlier that if this is indeed the year sort of of discovery for the Lakers, they're not a title team. And I believe that's true. We we've called it. Everybody's auditioning especially to the trading deadline because you can't trade all these land. Stevenson, Rondos till December. Okay, you're not allowed to. So if this is the year of auditioning one on just play Lonzo ball, and I'll talk more about that around the corner plus coming up next, buy, sell and hold one of our favorite games. Lot of stuff going on in sports lotta show to.
"rondo" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Remember these same teams, many, many years ago in the seventies with Rudy Tomjanovich in Kermit Washington. It almost ended Rudy, Tom, John images, life. I covered the game. Yeah, they don't won't guys coming in drawing one hit a quitters because that's when somebody can really really get hurt. So I thought he should because he's done the whole thing. He put Jae hunt for no reason. I don't get why he puts James harden to start the whole situation. There'd been trashed, yeah, okay. I get all that. But then he pushed, if okay, Rondo there's no love love between Chris Paul and rage on Rondo for whatever reason. It goes back to Rondo San. You never gonna win a championship. You'll bomb, blah, blah, blah, create policy Ganzi easy to talk when you play cagey and Paul appears, okay, all that. Chris Ball shoulda got Chris, Paul. If I'm Chris Paul, I'm gonna get twenty games, skip Bayless. My grandfather told me my grandfather died when I was eight. So he told me I had to be six or seven. He's a boy to the most humiliating thing you can do to someone spit on he's son. You spit on say, you spit on the ground people p in poop on the ground. If someone's spits on you telling you you're worse than the ground, they think that little of Ukraine, Chris, Paul didn't won't smoke because he must his face. He's supposed to unload all, raise our Rondo, give him all the job work. He not a dentist, but he read Rondo not gonna need a out people the next day I'm getting on at work, you spend on it. So Chris polish, he eating spit on him, but he spit at it, but he was with. He had. Respecting Lord, please listen. So Chris, Paul should've got twenty. 'cause I still been whipping Rondo Rondo should've gone in the know Chris Paul, Chris polish unloaded on he should have made it. Oh, he should have gotten twenty because he should've. He's. He should still been outta had to shoot Brian quick elbow brought. Let me go. I know we do believe me go to do to me and Rondo. I gotta get Rondo escalated this Rondo gotta get Rondo gotta get the bare minimum five to six games because he's start. But you case middle some scam, spitting this man faith and not knowing when he was sleep with like he did, but he did it. And Chris, I'm thinking, I see them come together. It had been Bruin, skip, Rondo, try to jar charge. Chris. Paul runs over Rondo hops up. He's talking. Okay, Chris, Paul comes and gets rebound he boots Rondo out the way like, yeah, and then right before the half. Chris, Paul gets the layup, and Chris, Paul flips it over this thing, this thing, and then when they come together and then all of a sudden he starts winging hone, why? Why? Why? This winging? And he says, he's, you couldn't see it unless they slow it down and you get in real close. That's how that's the way you can see it. And then once I thought, oh yeah, Chris, you're supposed to get all that's regime Rondo head. Oh, man. Oh, he'd had to get out real quick point at the end of their trading punches. I thought Chris got him one good uppercut and he drew blood on it. He did draw blah. He got him right in the mouth. Dorando walked off the floor with the towel on his mouth. So we got him one thing betas when you when you that close and he's been on mine, but he's the president of the players association knows around. You can't throw just just trying to poke him with a. I'm the prayer that now on the president of Of the. the ads whipping competitions. That's what the get to you. But I thought Chris, Paul, exercise some self control not to just just unload on some. Sometimes I had read that manual yet with somebody spit in my face and it's okay to the. I g Jesus did that. He no, he way move man. I could be killed because he's been on meet skip. I got you. We got to go, we got, we got to do all this. You won't smoke. Okay. You get to be a barbecue because it's going to be smoking. We gonna move some furniture number j j Stokes and Bill Romanowski on Monday night skew that Rome of my team now, and I wanted to fight it and we had..

"Nick, how do you see it working? What kind of impact do you think Rondo will have on Lonzo? I think his biggest impact is going to be interpersonal relationships on the team and impractical think Rondo is going to go at lonzo's throat in practice. And I say that in a good what Rondo is a new Torius competitor, whether it is playing connect four, which he considers himself the greatest connect four player in the world or whether it's on the basketball court. Now there are times where he is checked out on teams, but if he is bought in an engaged, we have seen his relentless competitive nature. I think that will be great for Lonzo ball on the practice court. And I think that's a huge reason they brought in rage on Rondo the other place that I think and people might be surprised to hear me say this that I think Rondo can be very help helpful with Lonzo is the relationship and dealing from Lonzo side of things with LeBron we know LeBron can be notoriously passive aggressive. We also know. Iran holds players to an incredibly high standard and LeBron does not have a long history in the last decade of playing with young guys. The best example I can think of since he's been a champion or becoming champion is with Mario Chalmers and the heat and charmers got it so bad. When they went to the White House President Obama joked about it like it was a running joke, hell, everything was Mario's fault. That can be tough on Lonzo ball, and we know lonzo's dad is going to be in his ear saying one thing Rondo being something of a calming force saying, listen, man, don't get down on yourself..
