"Maybe they do need to get cert- start working on things a lot change in Laker land. Since I came up here last week with Sodano I was coming hidden in here. The heels of the Magic Johnson announcement and everyone was kind of silk coming up for air and just trying to figure it out. But I think there's been a real cultural shifts with the Lakers in the last week in the last week something. Has dramatically changed in Laker land. And I want to get into a quickly next. Plus, we're gonna play our interview with Sam amick. We had him on the other day you've rights for the athletic covering the NBA. And he's the one who broke the story about the Lakers not contacting David Griffin. Which is just how do you not do that me? Now, like, I do not even just pick up the phone so bizarre to me who they said, the tweet or something can we like DM slide David Griffin DM something like jokes aside? It is bizarre. You're right. Such a mistake at the only word mistake to not even pick up. I don't that makes no sense. That makes no sense. But the Lakers are doing something that lets me know that they're listening, and I think this is progress, I think this is good Laker fans. There has been a cultural shift around the organization in less than a we mean is looking at me like a deer in headlights me. Like, what is this guy talking about is? He just is this a long troll thing from a Nick fan. No. The Lakers are doing something that I'm totally on board with right now, I support it. And I wanna hear and see more of it. So we'll get into that next. Plus. The entire interview was Sammy Mick from yesterday Sodano show when he breaks down everything going on with the Lakers fascinating.

"He's going to be coming up in our number two. Our number one towards the latter. Part of the first hour Steve Weiss from the NFL network. We'll get his take on some of these crucial games coming up this weekend in the third hour of the show. Boy, how about the Nevada wolf pack. Eric muscleman has done with that program. We'll talk with Eric Muslim in in our number three an NBA basketball with Sam amick doubt for those of you that no, well, I don't have to repeat if you are looking at my ugly face for the first time, I am not natural for the Sacramento Kings and have been for thirty one years. How about that thirty one years tell you a little story about that remind me hawk to tell the story about the great RAF Lawler before I get off the air today because I am going to have the distinct honor of leading the NBA in one category at the end of this year. But how about the Lakers? All right. Laker fans. How nervous are you right now? Lebron James is having an MRI this morning. You saw what happened? He said. I heard a pop now. I can only say in watching LeBron James go down at one end of the court running down to the other end of the court and then getting down in a catcher's position. I don't know if you could do that. If you had badly injured, you're growing, I don't want to speculate. But if you heard something pop, and you growing was messed up, would you be able to get into a crouch like a catcher, would you be able to do that? Give credit to the Lakers and how they played when LeBron James went out the warriors made their flurry. Like, they always do. The warriors always make that run. And they made a run and they pulled it within two in the third quarter. And then the Lakers were able to pull away, and that's why you have a regime Rhonda one your team. And that's why New Orleans is not that good this year. All right because they don't have regime Rondo anymore. The pelicans are fifteen in one thousand nine hundred and they are not the same team without Rondo, but we're not here to talk about the pelicans right now, let's talk a little bit more about the Lakers in the warriors. So the warriors they trailed by as many as nineteen points in the third quarter and the Lakers lose LeBron James and here come the Golden State Warriors and they make three threes in a row, and they do what they do. They make up a big deficit in a hurry. And they end up beating the Lakers. No, they don't you know, why? Because Rondo and the rest of the Lakers coups MMA you look at how they played that fourth quarter. They not only beat the Golden State Warriors. They embarrassed him on their home floor on Christmas day, one twenty seven to one zero one. Now, here's the issue with the warriors. The feeling around the country is they're going to win the championship. No one's going to beat the Golden State Warriors in four games in the playoffs. And I wanna talk to Steve curry about this. I don't want to find out what it takes to keep the outside noise outside. In other words, we're in the area of social media a little bit different when Steve is winning championships, Chicago, and San Antonio, the players know it they get it. They hear all the talk. You know, it's almost like when curry Thompson who's not having a good year. Durant and green are all healthy. It's a foregone conclusion that the Golden State Warriors are going to win and here the are twenty three and twelve twenty three and twelve storing good there's nothing wrong with twenty three and twelve except when you're the Golden State Warriors. And when you're the Golden State Warriors twenty three and twelve is not meeting expectations. We say this every year. The only thing that matters for the Golden State Warriors is that they win the last game that the play nothing else matters doesn't matter if they win fifty five games sixty five games or seventy three games. Makes no difference because the Golden State Warriors are going to be judged differently than every other team in the NBA. If they don't win a championship, then it's not a successful year. And then there is the other aspect of the Golden State Warriors. What happens when DeMarcus cousins comes back? How long is it gonna take for Steve Kerr to implement DeMarcus cousins into the lineup. And is it going to help the Golden State Warriors? Is it going to hurt the Golden State Warriors that remains to be seen? Now. You'll be saying, well, gee, how could it hurt the warriors? Well, look at the pace that the warriors play with what about running up and down the floor. What about a big fella coming off an achilles? So we're gonna talk with Steve Kerr at the start of our number two about all of this. I wanna talk about this Sixers. They have a game in control. Against the team that has been their nemesis. The Boston Celtics. They had the game right there. And they are not able to close the deal, and they lose to the Boston Celtics. Now when you look at Philadelphia good record, right? Good home record. Not a good road record twenty two and thirteen overall, very good. Sixteen and three at home amazing. Six and ten on the road bad for a good team. Like that. My biggest issue with the seventy Sixers. I don't believe you can win in the NBA in the way the game is played now with a point guard that can't shoot I've said it over the years, particularly lately about Washington with John wall. I have said it with Utah with Ricky Rubio. I don't believe you can win and by win. I'm talking about going deep into the playoffs with guards that can't shoot. Ben Simmons can't have the ball at the end of the game because he can't shoot. And if he drives they're gonna foul him. And he is a awful free throw shooter. Not I don't know if you heard the comments after the game, but Joel Embiid was talking about I we didn't touch the ball in the fourth quarter. Here's the deal. What did you get Jimmy Butler for you got Jimmy Butler because you need to go to guy? Right, you Joel Embiid. Who is a monster on the floor. Why is Ben Simmons and J J Redick? All right. Why are they the offense in the most critical part of the game? When you have ADT, Jimmy, Butler, and Joel Embiid. Philadelphia is good. But I'm sorry. Philadelphia fans when the playoffs start and you need to have a big basket. Ben Simmons cannot have the ball in his hands. Ben Simmons is not gonna win you a game. Because Ben Simmons can't shoot. Is it amazing? What they said on TV yesterday when he made that fade away from twenty two feet. It's the longest shot they've made his NBA career. Are you kidding me? This is the NBA two thousand eighteen. It you can't shoot from the guard position. You're not going to win. People always say, well, gee, look at a team like the Houston Rockets, and I say the same thing, why did the rockets beat the Golden State Warriors last year? And I understand James Harden's a great player, and I understand James Harden's, the MVP, and I would've voted him for the MVP too. And I'm not comparing James Harden's lack of shooting to Ben Simmons because it's night and day. But why why did the rockets lose to the Golden State Warriors last year? Because James harden can't make a big shot in the biggest games of the year. Same story every single year. Great player, absolutely. Rocket fans. Talk to me. Big game may big game June. Down by three down by six got to close the deal. Are you confident that James harden is going to be able to make the big shot? We see it in the regular season. We've seen it year after year after year. Rockets right now at eighteen and fifteen barring any more injuries. I can't see this team not making the playoffs. I look at the Utah Jazz seventeen and eighteen big win last night against Portland. That's twice in a week. They beat the blazers. Ricky Rubio is getting better. He's an excellent free throw shooter. But again, I go back to when you have to have a guard make a shot. If Ricky Rubio was in that situation is he going to be able to make the big shot for you. I haven't seen it talk about what's going on in Washington. And how disappointing the wizards are at thirteen and twenty one am I blaming that all on John wall? I am not. But wizards fans, you know, when's the last time John wall made a big big shot in the biggest of games we saw him two years ago meltdown in game seven at Boston. He can't make your shot. The game is now beyond the line. If you're guards can't make threes. It is really really hard to win in this league really hard to win in this league. So as we go through this morning, and if you're on the east coast in the afternoon, if we get an update on the Brian James will pass by do I think the Lakers can survive a while without LeBron? Yeah. I do you know why? Because Rondo is that veteran presence. They have Ingram back Kouzmanis deadly from three. The they've got the pieces to stay afloat while they wait for LeBron. They're twenty and fourteen they've got the kings in Sacramento tomorrow. They have games that they should be. Okay. I don't know about tomorrow. Although the kings are playing tonight in LA against the clippers. They have the kings again on the thirtieth. Let's say LeBron James is out two weeks will the Lakers be able to play five hundred over two weeks stretch. Because when you look at the west right now. Do you know that eighteen and fifteen in the west is eighth right now with Sacramento how about the east eighth-place Detroit fifteen and sixteen you lose two games in a row in the west. You can go from sixth down the tenth look at the teams in the Western Conference that are not currently in the top eight San Antonio eighteen and sixteen Memphis a game over five hundred. They're in ninth and tenth respectively. So here's the bottomline, folks. Watch the playoffs coming up in this spring get to calendar to two thousand nineteen and watching close games how a team like Philadelphia. If they can't get the ball to Jimmy Butler. Joel Embiid, they're probably not gonna win. Look at the Utah, Jazz close games. Now. I'm talking about close games is your point guard. Ricky Rubio is he going to be able to make the big shot. He going to be able to shoot the ball from the outside. When the defense is giving them that the big difference between a Rubio and a wall and a Simmons is Rubio is a great free throw shooter. Simmons is a horrible free. Throw shooter wall is so so so keep that in mind when you watch the NBA we're gonna talk a lot more about this with Steve Kerr coming up at the start of our number two. We'll talk with Sammy Mick from the athletic coming up in our number three..
