Fresh update on "russell westbrook" discussed on CBS Sports Radio

"I mean, obviously was about the Historic circumstances. And I remember thinking as I was doing live coverage on some of that stuff. Wow, This is crazy, but what's next? You know? What does it mean for our industry? What does it mean for sports in general? What's next? How long are we going to be? You know, are we going to be quarantined? All this stuff this new new normal. Yeah. And since that point, there's been the last dance, which was a content fountain and now feels like forever ago. And then, of course, the very necessary conversations. Around really life events in this country and the movement for equality and and all that, But there's a positive thing and all that that the diminishes, but there's been the movement for equality and the necessary conversations and sometimes uncomfortable conversations that came as a result. And It has been a long time. Since since sports where we're underway. You know, it's been a long time. It's been Four months now, right? So you start to get used to this new reality. And then it's like, Wait. Is this really happening? Are they really coming back? And I think, you know A lot of people have developed a lot of anxiety. Ah, lot of different emotions through this and And didn't even know howto receive that news. Right? Now. Again. Baseball's what? Two weeks away. And the N B A is is three weeks away. And then all of a sudden there's going to be en bas all day every day. Earliest games at one o'clock in the afternoon. Late games. Ah! 9 p.m. Eastern time. Zion Williamson's going to get to make his Proper debut in a sense As you know, they wanted him on opening night of the regular season before and that didn't work out due to injury. But he's on opening night now. LeBron James is gonna be back in action. LeBron's gonna be clearly the center of the sports universe as he often is, but maybe even more than ever. In a chase for his fourth championship. He'd be the first ever superstar with a championship. With three different teams. Oh, hi, Leonard. Actually, he could do the same thing and in a way He's had just an intriguing career because he doesn't have the the Compiler stats. That would put you in the all time great conversation, but he certainly has accomplishments that are putting him Into all time. Great type of conversations. Johannes. No championship. What it would mean for him. Unionist is ah. And M v P already looks like he might be a two time back to back M v p. And people are already talking about his free agency. But I mean if he wins one in Milwaukee That would be one of those titles. That's a little different. You know where there's not multiple superstars in that team. Kris Middleton is a very good player, but there's that multiple superstars on that team. So it would be like kind of like the Raptor last year or the 2011 Mavericks or the 2004 Pistons. Quite a bunch of all stars, but not a superstar the Rockets from the nineties. That would vault him to a whole different level. You have sleeper team like the Rockets. I think you're a very intriguing sleeper team because James Harden at such a high usage rate. And he'll be rested. And they went all in on that that small ball lineup which with fresh legs could help them. And they have the variants that comes with their three point shooting. Diving. Houston's dangerous and you have James Harden. And Russell Westbrook. And Mike D'Antoni. All respectively, looking for their first NBA championship. And then there, you know, like even Luca Dodges and Chris stops for Zynga's. Those guys are going to be fun to watch, and Alison and Luca was banged up. When the season stop, so he should be fully healthy. I mention before I'm even looking forward to see a team like the thunder. Chris Paul, though the old vet Leading the youngster and Chez Gilles just Alexander and you know an over achieving squad. In the east. You know who could who could possibly Upset Milwaukee. To be the heat. Jimmy Butler, I think is the most underrated player in the league, and they've got a nice Versatile team. The Celtics. They've got a really versatile team. Jason Tatum, have AH, coming out party is as a Individual star. Um The Sixers. You know they had Ah Ah, rough season thus far. Could this reset? Be good for them? And then the Raptor defending the title there very good team, too. I don't think they can win the championship without Kwai Leonard, but they're very so there's just a lot. That I think would be cool it and it's going to be like I said, I think hyper competitive having the player is going to be hyper focus. I think any of the mission of wind is only going to be amplified from the time away and the circumstances. So I'm definitely Really looking forward to it and how it it all unfolds. And it's It's like almost like you have to train your brain again to start talking in those terms because you were talking about so many different things. And now it's like, Oh, yeah. This is happening. Yeah, thereabouts. They're about to tip off. They're about to tip off. It's a real deal. We've seen math once you saw mass LeBron You know it was official right? 855 to 124227855 to 124227 at Robin Lundberg on Twitter or to get back to college football in a second, But first there's also an event tonight. That's interesting because we're talking about all these sports that have been away. One that's been there. The whole time is, for the most part, UFC. It's W W in UFC right that have have gone forward view. Not technically a sport, obviously, but you know, in the realm of what people talk about among sports and They? They've kept their events going at the performance center that they have, and you can think what you think about having a man runs his operation, but it's it's been An ongoing And then ah, UFC where Dana White was trying to rush some stuff, I think early and had to cancel it, especially because Disney and believe the governor of California if memory serves me correctly. Got on him, but But for the most part, he's been able to keep his his operation running in the midst of it and probably pay off for him tonight because they've got a big event at the quote Unquote Fight Island. Which still sounds like a Jean Claude Van Damme movie to me. Fight Island. Anthony Urine. Mm. A guy, right? You know, I watch it. I mean, I'm not huge. Mm, a guy. I mean, I will. Must Mas Vidal was a late sub for this fight right in the main event. Tonight against Usman. Yeah. So Ah! Who do you like in that in that fight. Ah! Honestly. Really have to think about. I haven't I haven't given the fire honestly too much thought. I've been more hooked in if anything with you. Said that I've been in the archives of the VW. Not even a current of spite you could get lost on the network. I mean, forget about well, you know, kids go through phases and and and this partially ushered in by me, but my son has been in a huge wrestling face. We've watched Every royal rumble essentially almost from like, 1991 too now and then a whole bunch of other individual.

"And. I've never heard him once say I'm a hundred percent. I can't wait to get back out there. Because all this season, he's been battling with lingering niche injuries, and he's been doing a great job, but to say he's one hundred percent I can only imagine wh- how about take off right now and then you look at a guy like Lebron James you see what happened when we gave them. Gave them risk this past off season. When he didn't make the playoffs, he came back on the mission and the way he was hitting stride, and he was playing some of the best basketball that we've ever seen the way he was playing. Pandemic and I imagine would. He's thinking about going down to that book. He's a great shape We got great pieces so those two guys. Of that that's what scares me. Where we're talking to Kendrick Perkins. Who is now doing great work for ESPN and Kendrick? You played, which are Smith and so laker fans are just starting to get used to what he's like. Jr was very active on social media last night until somebody shut him down and he seems like seems like he's a very fun. Loving guy who has got to be kind of life of the party. What's he like as a player? What's he like as a teammate? Do you like Jr? Is is one of the best guys to be around to be honest. great teammate own end up the court. A lot of people don't stand there, and it's unfortunate because he got a bad name while he was in Cleveland. And, he honestly didn't do. Then he got a bad name for wanting to compete and be a winner, and wanted to hold guys accountable and not tank, and he got a bad name in a bad rip, but one of the best guys to be around. Jr. Ultimate team and I'm not just saying that, but he is. About Jr.. People always want to think about there. One moment in the finals bring up one one terrible moment that he had but sued are one a lot of grains for Cleveland in the playoffs doing they're doing those playoff runs when they was making it to the final, and I could just remember when Jr. They had put on the bench because the front office wanted to start. You Know Rodney Hood over Jr and wanted you know Jedi is meant to get to get a minutes over him and young getting Indiana. Pacers team pushed up to seven games entire. Lou has and say you know what. I got roll with my dog. That I know who's better battle-tested. Jr Nick came into and I think he had like twenty one, but he's a truth and festival now wants to the power, not once the playing. He stayed ready. He always was the first person personnel the bench and that's what you go see now Dan. He's been overlooked this whole past season. A season in the have. Oh, he's. GonNa be on the mission when he gets when he get a chance when his chance and his name is called, he gonNA and Out To to watch. So we talk, Lakers talk clippers. Is there one team in the West, that you think could be the sneaky team. The rockets. The rockets I mean you when I'm looking at Russell Westbrook Jane so you talking about? Two. Maybe VP's prime I is worth noting the Russell. Westbrook on Neil because. He was dominating the pain. Before the. Pants Debbie, I'm it was. It was sacked like right from the time from January first all down. He was leading the league parts in a pain to me. I'm looking at the WESTBROOK book. And this is some of the best basketball I've seen him. Play with my own eyes, and that's crazy to say because we're talking about a man wherever you should triple double. Trigger double. But listen. Right, now the wrong about twenty points. Eight assists seven and have rebounds, but he's shooting a career high seven percents. I haven't seen Russell Westbrook. Play this under control in my life to be honest like the way he was playing, pushing the pace picking and choosing his as and then on top of that he's never played with this much faith. That's why I think the Houston. Rockets are dangerous. They go hit the ground running and it's a it's a use style type, type, atmosphere, and with James on losing twenty pounds. You can't count those guys out at all. I thought they made some. Key additions doing doing this pandemic and no defensive player. They're going to be very dangerous and I got them as a dark horse to win the whole thing, and they wouldn't surprise me if they do. Well Perk thank you for doing this man. You always think one last thing I. wanted to hear from you on how you feel about. Players today's NBA players, and their expression of support for the black lives matter movement in the impact of that down in Orlando, and what we're GONNA. See from the NBA this year. You know what I think. It's a beautiful dame. See You, know I-. NBA Futures in great hands when you look at these young guys of David Brown you know Marcus Smart Trae Young, even though trae young down. These guys before they time the way that they can themselves as professionals you know. I always say it's not what you do is is not what you do is how you do it and that lives matter. I mean it matters like in my opinion. Is You know you gotta? Make sure we continue to bring willingness to, but we got also make sure that we do it the right way in the. Way that these guys have been hounding in for being mature about it. Not Coming out, saying anything crazy going about it the right way I want to applaud also you want to applaud a lot of the veteran guys leaving lead by example and doing the right things, but at the end of the day I keep telling people the only way we have changed. We can't change races. Hell racism been around for four hundred years probably going to be around for another four hundred years. But we can't change is the system. How we change, the system changes to Shipley. Teaching people how to vote going vote making sure we don't get intimidated. Make sure we don't just sit allies, disinformation and going down there. Do we supposed to do? But the League is in good hands I love the leadership of these young guys and they have done a beautiful job. Go see you to bring this out down there for us. You know black lives, matter and quality, etc, etc and I think Adam Silver has done a great job in supporting the NBA flew. All, right, hey, listen perk..

"Heart radio out by Denver has approved 250 applications allowing outside bar and restaurant seating, and Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants says he's going to sit out this season. Bosie and his wife just adopted twin girls. Those stories and more coming up at 5 30 with Cathy Walker on Koray News radio. This is big Al and Joe Joe Kurt Healing does a tremendous job covering the N B. A is the lead MBA writer at basketball talk and he continues to join us as we We don't necessarily forgo what are going to be a bunch of in my opinion, Kurt warm up games leading up to the plate. It is weird that they're gonna have these warm up games. But there are some some seating issues that could be interesting. Now, if the playoffs were to happen, like right now, it looks like it would be the Denver Nuggets and the Houston Rockets, who going into the back half of the year kind of changed the way that they were playing a game with the smallest lineup in the league. Yeah, they went. I mean, not just small ball like microbe. Alright, like P. J. Tucker at 65 is the center. They're going. There's nobody taller than just to make sure they were all in the treated quick capella the deadline. I don't tell her that the 67 on the roster. It's They're the most unpredictable team to me because of that. They won some games right out of the gate when they started doing it and good teams wasn't there. I think the Lakers in there like they were winning some games. They look good. And then they lost about 4 30 it looked like the book got out on the right, like O. So you got to do you know, I think Denver can handle them. They've got the size. No kids with no kids would obviously be a big part of that serious but you're going to need some other big guys kind of just punish him and defensively. The real challenge. There is just You're gonna have to keep going to have to make James Harden work for it. He's going to get him But you just can't let him be efficient doing that. You gotta find a way to kind of not felt too much and keep him from I'm getting 54 points on 22 shots right, like you've got to make him really kind of work for it, And that's not going to be easy. But I just I think Denver figures it out over the course of seven games. And like Like I said, though, The one team. I have the most trouble figuring I just don't know what Houston's gonna look like. I just don't know how this is gonna know, in a in a serious like this. I think that I don't think they can beat the Lakers or Clippers, because those teams bring athleticism with their size. I mean, Coin. Leonard's taller than anybody on starting walk That's abroad for the like. I don't think that they can handle the size of the Lakers and Clippers. Look You know Denver? It will. It will be tougher than you want to believe it will be just like I think you just found him inside. That's not gonna be that simple. And I I just have, you know, Look, just the way Houston was, as you said, you know, at the very beginning of And yes, I do think a lot of us started calling it small ball at the beginning, and it has then been referred to as micro ball because they just do. They have no size on this team. It is a lot of isolation. It's Ah ah lot of isolation for not just James Harden, but for Russell Westbrook as well. And both can fill it up when they are hot. But you know what? There's also those games where if one of them is not hit Mitt, you could take the other guy out, and that is how you have been able to beat this team at least going down the stretch. Yeah, I think again. I think you can do things that make life very difficult for them. You can take away some of the transition points. You know, don't but Westbrook was getting his some of it that way, and I What they're doing is fairly predictable and and use a quote from a scout. I like Detectible is defendable. I know what you mean. As good as James Harden is, I think there comes a point. Well, you can. If you can predict what he's going to do is a little more defendable. It's again. You still need the personnel to do it. And that's not gonna be easy. But I just I think over the course of seven games, you, Khun. You can put it together and figure out what you need to do to stop Houston and I'm I'm just I'm not so old that there's an advance out of the first round. And that said if you told me they made it Into the second. I wouldn't be shocked if you will see, I think the matchups gonna matter to them. Heard. How important is it for the N ba to be acutely aware of the fact that there's going to be no fans that there is going to be microphones that are going to pick up a lot of things that That, you know, And obviously the N B A is always been considered a kid friendly sports. I you know I have, and I said, this ah, dozen times on this show. I would love it to be, you know, two different networks covering it, one that lets it fly and won. That makes it a little bit more PG rated for for the family kind of like they did with the Michael Jordan documentary. I would love that as well. I think that they're talking about doing multiple streams will see if one of them ends up being that because I'm with you. That's the stuff. I want to hear it, son. It's the trash talk like it's it's, you know. Hey. Doc Rivers getup and holds up a fist and Have what? Four Laker players going, You know they're going to run floppy or whatever, you know whatever it is, and they can start calling out for you like to hear that part of the conversation would be fascinating to hear some of the stuff that goes on. But you're gonna have to have to be a special channel because Opening night. What Patrick Beverly says the rage on Rhonda, You don't want your 66 grader in the room for that? Yes, that is. That is true. I so all things being considered. All things being considered. Is there anybody that you feel comes out of the East that has the ability to match up and beat the Los Angeles Lakers. First off. I think the Clippers can I should watch like I kind of think that the Clippers of the team with the best chance the Bucks have a shot, though part of it is because Donna's political he's about to be back to back M V. P s special. Their defense. Was best in the league by a mile this year, and it was kind of predicated on Taking away the paint. During the shoot threes. And that could give the Lakers trouble over time. Over the course of the Siri's. We'll see how it would go with the Lakers beat them handily, the last time they faced them. But, um I I think the bucks Bucks would have a chance. I don't want to say more than a puncher's chance that still take the Lakers in that series, but I don't think the Lakers I think the Clippers matchup better but the bucks we have a real chance that that is a very good team with They would need Big Siri's out of all the role Play's Chris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Everybody's gonna have to step up. Is gonna have to step up with some big moments, but I think they're capable. Well, Kurt. Good luck with your boss's both of them. Your actual, your actual boss at basketball talk. And then, of course, the boss that lays next to you at night. Hopefully, hopefully you get the opportunity to be down there and cover this. What is going to be a very crazy cool events taking place in Orlando in the bubble, and we appreciate you joining us here in Denver today. Thanks for having me on there is a key Kirti land, joining US lead MBA writer..

Why Circular Conversational Design is Best with Alison Greenberg, CEO at aflow

Why Circular Conversational Design is Best with Alison Greenberg, CEO at aflow

"Was reading online. That you have a pretty impressive background you went to Yell. And you studied anthropology you played in the Symphony Orchestra there. And then you did some work in the arts for Awhile and now you work in voice technology and there's been a lot of people that have come from the creative space so I'd love for you to talk about briefly your journey into how and why you got into voice technology years ago. Yeah absolutely well. One of my favorite things about this industry is how cross-disciplinary it is. There's really not one background of people who under boys and I don't think many different in that respect but I will say that really from the time I could talk. Language wasn't just the way I express myself it's Mike Currency and so music is something that I was always drawn to. I played music in high school and College. I still to this day. I studied anthropology because of how central language was to it as a social science. I didn't study English or history. I studied a social science because I loved looking at language as a tool and as a currency especially in ultra contacts and in the voice industry but actually with my company of flow we started with chat bots. Language is very much currency of conversational user. Interfaces or curious as we call them and so you know voice and chat go hand in hand they are. Interbay says that requires specificity precision and entertaining use of language but the design principles across voice and chat. Can you really different? And so- entering Voice Technology. You know it's kind of a misnomer. I didn't enter voice technology. I entered chat and that was because when we started flow. Mico Gandara South Miller was actually the driving force behind beginning not company and he was noticing automation taking he was noticing the role of AI in businesses in communications and he started to build the baht of an NBA all star name Russell Westbrook at the time of Oklahoma City Thunder and that was our first bought and then we started to build from there realizing that we scale communications we could even skill personas and brand identities into these conversational experience and so while we believed that automation and I were powering communication. We also believe that is really immature. I don't know if you hear this often but do people ever talk to you about kind of how I is lacking yes. That's definitely something that comes up and I know especially when it came out a couple years ago and consumers used it. There was kind of frustration and so I feel like there's now this like element of education and awareness of like. No it's growing and and we're working on it and getting people to understand that totally. Yeah I mean in technology. You hear a lot about the hype cycle rate. So we might be in that trough of disillusionment which is a piece of language. I just love it's kind of various the trump disillusionment makes sense. Alexa is a teenager. You know came out. In two thousand four chat bots really the dawn of chat bots was in the mid twenty tonnes. We are looking at technologies. That are not just immature in some time. They're immature in the sense of the amount of work that has to go into making them seem less so this industry needs our help. Our words and our design for it to actually work. It's not intelligent yet right so if a is a teenager you know. Teenagers can crash your car. Teenagers can make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of damage especially on the part of brands but teenagers can also change the world so just look at Greta. Van Ver look at the kinds of young people who are driving social change today. That's the approach that we take to chat and voice it'll flow and match. Why we built the concept of conversational design is because we believe that we have to work together with these systems and with the power moderation and conversation design is actually the most important part of Charlton boys today. If these systems are designed well technology to incredible but it's not going to work welter these her. Yeah which brings me to. You made a comment in another interview. You did how you talked about. Hamas boys conversations are linear and what you do out of flow as you really work on creating a circular conversational design. Can you describe the different? So people understand it and why it's important to what you do at a flow hersher. Yeah so out of what we developed. Circular Conversation Design as our attempts to fix these broken visual and verbal designs. Keeps the industry has kind of had to back dialogue into the tools that we have to build it. And so I think really voice and charter just like any industry were almost only as good as our tools and so what we do to kind of choose actualized or conversation design. We talk about a traffic circle. Have you ever been a England or actually you live in New Jersey? I was GonNa say we definitely have traffic circles in New Jersey? So yes perfect. Yes so we'll have talking to people who've been to New Jersey because you're intimately familiar with the roundabout traffic circle. You know you have to get on a certain point and then you make turtles people who aren't from UK or New Jersey. These very confusing carry. I've learned But the cool thing about around about or traffic circle as you can get on off any talk and so if you miss your exit you just keep going in the circle. You have another opportunity to make that exit once you exit you can drive through the backup but you always have an opportunity to get back on. And that's how human conversations work the tools of the trade up until now have kind of destroyed the potential conversations. I in my opinion because we've mainly used the decision tree right. So that's linear design thinking conversations as linear. But that's not how we speak. You know I could talk to you right now about projects for doing it a flow. We can pivot to women and boys. I could ask you what it's like to live in New Jersey. That's how communication works. There's so many circles within circles. There's so many overlaps in and crossed actions and so we had a great experience actually Boy Summit last summer we were really lucky to be part of Amazon's conversation design workshop. One got to take some great echo. Show fives and They disqualified anyone who designed using a decision tree. And so that kind of shows you the way that the industry has been. I know a lot of designer still used decision trees. And it's because it's how away to understand the computer logic but we don't conversational napster and we think of them as a set of nodes that are all linked to one another wherever and whenever possible in a circular fashion and just like that traffics.

"russell westbrook" Discussed on The Lead

"So eric. Everyone kind of knows Russell. Westbrook from what we see in interviews here there or video clips go viral. But you're someone who's covered him day in and day out. What's he liked to cover? Oh he's he's difficult president. You guys win. What no what are you talking about? Man Have People moved on? I'll know how was your problem. Team look like the question. That's your problem. Lightened up a little. Since he's gone to Houston but you know when to thunder days. He was he was a prickly character. Well so we're here to talk about Russell Westbrook's incredible performance on April ninth two thousand seventeen against the nuggets in Denver but the story of Russell Westbrook season and how he reached. That pinnacle actually begins the previous summer in July of two thousand sixteen a heartbreaking fourth of July for Oklahoma City thunder fans as you said Kevin Durant the cornerstone of this franchise for nearly a decade deciding to leave. Okay see and sign with the Golden State Warriors Durant breaking. The new sits up everything for this season to happen. The thunder doesn't have a lot of time to pivot in terms of you know being able to bring in players that they might have wanted to bring in to replace the rent. So basically they're working with kind of a patchwork roster in Westbrook is the unquestioned Alpha Dog now but there were a lot of questions as to whether or not Russell. Westbrook could lead a team by himself. Because he always been with Kevin Durant and Kevin Durant was kind of anointed from basically teen years that he was going to be the next big guy in the NBA. Russell never had that. Russell always had to kind of go against the notion of you know. Is He really A superstar player and now this was Russia's show started to get a lot of media buzz even before the season started at all rustles going to be unleashed and all this and such. But I don't think we really understood what it was going to be like until we saw it follows touch target again west the triple double that last rebound his tech twenty triple doubles Westbrook. You get eighty games into the season and this thunder team is way better than people expected. And it's in large part because Russell's dominated so much of the offense so we rolled into Denver and it's already just a fever pitch because this guy is basically averaging a triple double every other game really get the assist forty one keys got time and a single fees and you were out this game in Denver. Three years ago. Give us the setup here. Where is Russell Westbrook? At this point in the season. It's a Sunday matinee game. The thunder was in the middle of four game road trip and every stop. He goes to his kind of turned into the Russell. Westbrook show half. The crowd is cheering for Westbrook. He's playing a bunch of teams. Who have little to no consequences or where they finished into standing so all of these fans are flocking to see him break his records to see him. Get a triple double in the case of this particular game. The nuggets weren't playing for nothing. What was at stake for Denver in this game yet they still had no shut making a play offs. And I think that that's an important part of this game. The thunder already locked into their playoff seat at six but the nuggets are a team. That's young that doesn't quite know how to close. And how to win and Westbrook have been the preeminent closer this season so when he sees an opportunity to strike he goes forward and the nuggets gave him every opportunity in this game. So Russell Westbrook as you said is is really the main guide for the first time in his career with no Kevin Durant to share the spotlight and he really has free rein to just go out and try to dominate. What stands out to you about his performance as you're watching him against Denver justices sheer effort. Rebound mich- will pull it back out. That's why he's after the triple six foot. Three rebound up. The tree gives him before the triple double thing kind of became this phenomenon. He was still one of the top five rebounding guards of all time because he's just so athletic he wants it so much more than everybody else. He has an innate sense of winter break for the ball. Can't finish the RIB that there's Kip back. Westbrook give him the point rebound double double his office. Rebounding is phenomenal. E Evers almost two offensive rebounds a game for the season for a six three guard. That's just unheard of as the game against the nuggets is going on. You can tell something special is happening. What's going on on the court? Westbrook is pretty. Much unstoppable westbrook attack the rim andy storage again and this crowd understand. What's going on here? Russell's got eight points in the quarter bessbrook his seven three Sadler. Russell has physicists. So another double dip for Westbrook on that play. Westbrook with his eleven three bound. He's GonNa find single around the balance that is just as pretty basketball. Play as you'll ever see sigler scores off. Westbrook sixth assist the you can get on the floor then. His jumper was so good net mid range and it was just an automatic two points for basically Westbrook pulls up the elbow stores again. Ross has ten point here in the quarter as as bad as you're going allow Ross ticket into seeds without anybody being within six feet of him. He's GonNa punish you all afternoon back by halftime. I think he had twenty three eleven. Six He's GonNa get it like cumin norm. You like okay. He's GonNa get it. It's just a better way. One the second half of this game a couple of things start to happen for one. The nuggets start to pull away two point. Basket extends the nuggets largest lead of the game to thirteen. And you really start to see how big star Westbrook is at this moment because at some point you know the Denver crowd even though they need this win to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Denver crowd starts pulling for Russell. Westbrook to get the triple double. They start chanting. Mvp Nari to stood at what? The crowd chants folks here at the Pepsi Center. Every Ross goes to the free throw line and at one point. They boo when he comes out of the game. You're the booms they love this guy. They're poured because Russell Westbrook is coming out of the game. The man is Tire Okay. So by this point. Supernova everybody's hanging on every play in the second half when he gets to that ninth Assis- looking inside Russell Westbrook is one assist away from NBA. History that this crowd here is is giving me anxiety. Fda Norwood Russell Westbrook. Every time he gets the ball he's bringing up the court. There's just this Murmur anticipation here in. Denver has become an absolutely electric. What's going on in the process of trying to get that assists the thunder offense sputtering. Alleged jump should on too strong shot here in the fourth. He's just at trying to overpass to get the triple-double record. So honestly the quicker he got the record the more that they can get back into the motive actually trying to win the game with four seventeen left. He's coming off the court and then everybody kind of stands feet waiting for shipowners to set the screen drives and naturally two or three guys kind of collapse of the pain and smudge Christians wide. Open on the right wing. Russia picture.

Russell Westbrook on ejection: I'm always the bad guy

"Russell. Westbrook Edna eventful night against those warriors. The good twenty one points at ten assists in the win the bad westbrook was ejected after receiving second technical foul in the fourth quarter. Here he is after the game stopped me guy but if you watch the clip obviously I hit. Lebron wasn't on purpose of I'M GONNA Glassy. Got Hit he says to me I said something to him. Standing there guy comes to national ball in my hand. You guys can run up to me. I didn't move but I'm always the one that gets payment bad guy in the whole situation. I just think it's unfair after all that. I'm only when I get kicked out. That's not fair. I don't care what nobody says. there's so many other people involved in doing so many things that weren't okay What I'm the one. That gets the tech jacket in everybody else's Congo supplied. All like I said I I take responsibility for the whole Marcel. To Heighten West. Goes hard every night? You GotTa Love. It's hard but stephen this point he's got a league-high thirteen tax. Are you concerned about him? Comply off times. I'm concerned about them. Here's a reality situation. I'm not concerned about him. From the standpoint of he is real and authentic as he is against West West but doesn't have a phoney bone in his body and he goes after it. But here's the problem Max Kellerman since Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City Russell. Westbrook hasn't been out of the first round. There's been out of first round. Not only that. He hasn't even shot forty percent from the field in the postseason the last three years. And when you look at Houston and what is expected of them right now. He's averaging twenty seven seven and seven. He's been an absolute monarch. He's been he's been sensational about it. But Max he's only shooting twenty four percent for three point range. When playoff Tom Arrives? They slow the game down. Defense is gift back. They don't give up anything to audit will give too much rather in the open court stonehouse some way. They're going to force you to take perimeter south now Russell. Westbrook is going to get his somehow some way but is it going to be through the high volume variety. That doesn't necessarily work. Come post-season Tom. You're going to have to elevate your level of efficiency. And if you don't do that plus your temperamental and it gets physical. He clearly is strong enough. Big enough he can be a bully when he wants to be. Because you got a lot of cats that scare him because he is Hiroshi but in the end that can work against you come playoff time particularly against some of the bigger names. He'll need to be careful.

NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances

"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.

Westbrook’s 41 Help Small Ball Rockets Best Lakers

"The other game. I wanted to address COVINGTON. I said made his debut debut. The pocket rocket. So last the Lakers one. twenty-one one eleven so the the first real experiment with the extremely small ball with at least Covington in the mix so far success S. Westbrook at forty one and Bobby Cov- hit two clutch late threes. If fourteen points eight boards really really solid defensive numbers there as well. He's the hit nineteen eighteen threes overall. What did you think from this? Roy Is this. I mean this is fun. We like it because it's unique and it's wild to see and we said the Lakers would be one of those teams like I don't know if they're going to get killed inside well they didn't. I mean the League scored a bunch of points on the paint but on the boards was pretty even and the rockets. Also don't care if you're gonNA score outscored score them in pain 'cause they're like well we're GONNA outscore by thirty from the three point line. which is what they did in this game? It'll be fun to see if this can last. Yeah that's right. They get very impressive win because they came back late and Rub hit one of those threes. Like I think it was. Anthony Davis was right there in his face. He hit it so they win the game. He Hits shutouts working. We'll we need. We need a little bit more of a sample size to really see if it can hold up but good on Russell Westbrook again. I mean man. He's playing the only took two threes last night. One of them he he does seem to have actually been able to real that three point shooting in for this season Because in the past he's gotten sucked into that too shooting away hasn't been a great shooter. You still only shooting. I twenty four percent on the season. So he's realizing that's not my bag baby instead. He's finding otherwise and he's I mean. This is the best Russell. Westbrook broke when he's going inside and taking advantage of matchups where he can use his athleticism speed. So I mean he's he's worked himself into the All Star game two for his play over the last month or so Ah Honestly I believe that because early on it didn't look right and last night. He loves the big stage. He loves the Big Challenge. I love when Ross has it going. And he's feeling it a little bit. He starts barking at everybody at the crowd. It is fun when he's gone. He's feeling that you can see exactly watching this game. You can see exactly why. The rockets made made the trades they did they might have gotten dunked on nineteen times. But they're fun they may nineteen three. So that's an extra nineteen points right there. You GotTa Win The math. Clint Capellas not flipping flipping the math for the rockets. They're going all in on it. I've definitely thought it was hilarious. Seeing the clips from Mike Dantonio pre-game. We might be short. But we're stout James Harden he strong Air Gordon. You can guard begs. PJ Tucker who can guard begs than Anthony Davis one out and was like who cares that you guys are out here dunking every single time it was roast mode but but those are only towns. I think there's a couple of things to remember when you do go super small. Yeah you like you got to play hard all these young small guys. Excuse me sort of got got a box out and like bust their ass. Tucker's incredible and all that I love him. But the other thing you get from playing small is in a forty eight minute game in theory eerie in Syria if the other team are playing their bigs. They're not GONNA be able to sustain that effort over the course of the game and I thought you saw the Lakers look a little more tired as the game went on a little bit. Where the rockets being just the smaller guys more athletic guys are GONNA be able to sustain it in theory a little bit more? That's one thing the other thing though the big benefit over this like five game stretch here where they've gone super small gone pocket rocket they're forcing more turnovers. And that is huge. I mean last night. The rockets scored thirteen points on sixteen laker turnovers. And then the rocks. Okay you flip it while they gave up eleven second chance points on six acres offensive rebounds. But that's still you know. Do the math on that. That's still you're coming up positive. That's a plus too when you're looking at turnover your points and then we're small on the glass but it's okay. Those are the second chance points. And that's been the big difference. They're averaging The other team is like eighteen turnovers per game over this little run here with the Super Bowl small experiments. So that's a big positive and I think just again Covington going to help with that. There's no doubt about that. You know getting deflections and getting these steals lending westbrook go to either then attack or then here comes the you know the the second wave of three point shooters that you've got to try and get a body on Harden Gordon or Tucker in the corner or something like that so that that to me is the obviously too little positives of this going really small. I'm excited to see if it can continue in the regular season injure the playoff series.

Nobody need you to go. Congrats Russell Westbrook on a great accomplishment. I mean, you missed weeding that badly that you wanted to step down from being the president of the Lakers, or did you never actually want the job you'd like the idea of the job. And then you saw this job actually requires work. And then you said, you know, what maybe it's better off just being Magic Johnson. See be Magic Johnson nowadays, you can make a lot of money and not have to do a lot of work to be the Lakers president you actually have to do a lot of work. It's not a job where you just show up and collect the paycheck. He wanted to be free. I mean magic just wanted to be matched and thought that hinders showing off the Lakers for an office was gonna magically make things better for the Lakers mind boggling to me, then magic. This was the best way to do. It. The power hour. Weeknights at seven eastern on SP nation radio. The second level. Especially quarterback. So that's one those in full bloom. Well.

"Oh, it's great to have you today. So fired up middle of the football season. Kind of an MBA night last night. That's fun now. Jimmy, Butler going crazy for the Sixers and LeBron taken over the fourth quarter. I also watched the show called fortitude with Stanley Tucci guy's amazing toys, very good. So a lot of times what the headline is isn't the story. And the guy that writes, the story doesn't necessarily put the man or woman who writes history doesn't put the headline up but the headlines trying to draw you into the story. So sometimes the story of the game. The headline doesn't match it. So here's the headline last night on Oklahoma city's win Russell Westbrook. Third most triple doubles in NBA history. Aasa snazzy that guy's amazing. Russell Westbrook dominated the game. Oh, actually watched the game because Oklahoma City was getting rolled. By Twenty-three by a week team, Brooklyn. I mean getting rolled out of the arena. And Westbrook was dominating the ball. And then late in the third quarter. Westbrook was done getting the stats. He so desperately wants. He loves the triple double. He's going to be the all-time trouble. Double guy loves it. And he got him by the middle late third quarter. He got it, and then he stopped shooting, and then the Oklahoma City thunder who were getting rolled suddenly started playing really well, and they ended up because Paul George to call the shots in the fourth winning. The game is a huge comeback last night. Before Russell Westbrook had his triple double. Oklahoma City was minus nineteen then he stopped shooting. They were plus Twenty-one they shot. Thirty nine percent is a team during his triple double run for the first two and a half quarters, then he stopped shooting shot. Forty nine percent. He did not did not. Make a shot in the fourth. Paul. George went crazy and scored twenty five in the fourth. Isn't that interesting? So Paul George who mostly watched Russell Westbrook feed himself feed himself one hungry. Gimme more. Gimme more. Gimme my points. Give me by rebounds. Gimme my assists. And then Westbrook as he's prone to do is exhausted scales. Back after he gets what he wants, Paul, George. The better shooter takes over they make a miraculous comeback, and they went on the road. Now, the headline is man Westbrook. Gets a triple double. The headline should be after Westbrook is done getting his triple double Oklahoma City allows the game plan to work Paul. George shoots more and Oklahoma sins wins a game that should have never been that close. Of course. They don't have the space for all that headline but again flash. Newsflash triple double. Oh my God. Westbrook. Got a triple doubles the most amazing thing at that's the headline. But if you watch the game. After he fed himself and got what he wanted, and it was either exhausted or felt like this isn't working, then they just fed Paul George the ball, Paul George the real shooter on the team took over they made a miraculous comeback in one. Once again, the thunder are five and oh in Paul Georgia's biggest games when he's allowed to go off when he's a loud enough shots and opportunities to score in the thirties. They've never lost. And when Westbrook shoot under twenty times, the thunder are eight and one last night was the first game. He shut over twenty times and they won. And they barely won. Barely. There's a clear you can keep writing your headlines. There is a clear definitive truth in the Oklahoma City, thunder less Westbrook. More Paul, George and you win. Triple double of Westbrook over twenty shots, less efficiency. Paul George doesn't get the opportunities. You do not win. But you keep writing those headlines you keep writing those headlines about the triple double. That's not what really happened last night. What happened was after he was done feeding himself, and he was full. Big old belly points rebounds. And assists Westbrook is exhausted and George took over and they won the game. Joy taylor.

"Yeah he is what he is right yeah that's that's the that's the nfc because oh yeah he's forty three shots now i will defend russell westbrook onto different parts remember paul george was two of eighteen in game six so the people say you should have gotten the ball paul george more paul george was two of eighteen and carmelo anthony was is washed up yeah you know he was he this year well we'll make him into a jump shooter he couldn't make jump shots in this series and he can't guard anybody they didn't even play him in the fourth quarter there for a good good stretch of time until the very very end against the utah jazz so i will defend him in that he was the only person capable of picking them up also defend them in an atrocious miscall they fight all the way back to being down three paul george catches the ball outside three point line he pump fakes lifts rudy go bear and rudy go bare makes a little bit of context is paul george jumps in we've seen this play a thousand times over should it be called a foul probably not is it called foul every time especially when it's the star player quinn steiner's over there in the sideline holding his head so this game likely should have gone to overtime and could have been in incredible comeback just not like the comeback in game five but russell westbrook as you have stated as i have stated really hard to play with and forty three shots over eighty eighty shots in the last two games he is what he is and he's going to be in oklahoma city for the rest of eternity they got carmelo's contra this things in badge massey anyway paul george it yeah i think to you i think by the way got lonzo ball and ben simmons both could elevate him i think he will i think you get a little bit of a bargain now because the theory now is god he was awful late you put him with ben simmons.

"Regular basis okay see can throttle up their defense john russell westbrook will advance to the second round now i think it's a longer series than everybody else is predicting i think it could go six or seven games most people think oklahoma city disposes of the jazz quickly i think i think the western conference playoffs are really really good i think these turn conference playoffs are going to be fairly predictable now i do think of dion waiters played for miami was healthy you'd have a real series philadelphia's young and you'd have waiters and spoke to the coach and dwayne wade and whiteside and some more older players philadelphia right now a lot of it is just and this has no shot at philadelphia the east is a mess i mean boston right now is a mess john wall's hurt gordon hayward kyrie irving hurt it's it this is as this is as easy as the east is ever going to be this is as easy as it's going to be because let's be honest boston is going to be better next year boston starting five next year is going to be kyri irving at point all star jalen brown at two good player jason tatum now not a rookie gordon hayward in the east probably all star al horford in a guy like terry rosier marcus smart off the bench and the best half court coach in the nba i don't think philidelphia's going to own the east forget the nba don't think they're going on the east starting next year i i really think boston's plan begins in earnest next october and november when the nba season begins final hour the always entertaining brian scall brainy joins us by the way he's lost weight looks then like he's gonna play right now broadcaster for the celtics around the corner in l a our three coming up it's the herd.

"For stopping heard lie new k this is going to get rambunctious my friend nick right disagrees sadly on most things i say and i know the first when he's going to be furious via the coward global satellite network from new york city host first things first by the way 2 billion people in america i myself and adams silver both agree that zaazaa shouldn't be finder suspended how does that sit with you knowing that adam silver and myself were reasonable and you're out and looney crazy territory it doesn't sit with me well at all because you and adam silver or two of my favorite people in the world and two people that are rarely so clearly on the wrong side of an issue colin i know that it's been a long time since you were an elite athletes how ever i have seen the covers of your books and you claim those armed photoshop so i imagine that you know what it's like when you fall how you fall and that typically even if someone hits the back of your knee and tip shoe forward as happened disaster allegedly the way you try to do what is brace your fall the best way to brazier fall is not the aim your right hand at russell westbrook russell westbrook's crotch and your body at his ankles zavalza is a skill ms goon with no place in this league the nba decided they couldn't prove the intent so they didn't spine or suspend him the warriors could have sat him and they should have and i heard you yesterday talking about the it is okay for guys to worry when they go into the lane love it okay i i agree with you which is why a hard foul when he guys trying to dunk on you is one thing bull waiting for a guy to be in his most vulnerable position and flopping on top of him is totally different if i felt very different uh i feel very different.
