Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals
"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited
Inside Jimmy Butlers Psyche
"Nick for Dell I WANNA start in a very important place here. The question that everyone I think is obsessing about at this point in the NBA playoffs. What the Hell is going on with this coffee business that Jimmy Butler is running. Twenty Bucks Cup twenty bucks it is some high level stuff from everybody who has had had a taste of big face coffey. Why is this guy selling coffee? Why is this happening because he can Pablo Nick Fidel is a staff writer for ESPN WHO's been covering Jimmy Butler ever since he entered the League in two thousand eleven this guy brought a French press with him into the bubble because he wanted to make sure that he had the very best coffee that there was. So in true entrepreneurs style. Jimmy is charging twenty bucks a pop cash only as he's said repeatedly. Last couple of months to teammates or whoever else wants the show up and and give them some money because I can't get coffee nowhere here that's my bump it up to thirty bucks a cup just depends people here can afford it. So anybody complaining. Through the years it's only the best for Jimmy, Butler on a lot of levels in in the coffee is the latest example of that. So we're GONNA take a deep dive with you into Jimmy Butler today but let's start with the most recent stuff because they're coming off this Saturday night loss against the Celtics they still have a two one series lead game four is Wednesday night but on Saturday night in game three, the heath tendency to get behind early finally did catch up with them and in the final minute when they're flirting with yet another potential comeback. We saw Mr. big face coffey himself sitting on the bench. Usually, in these situations, look beyond the floor and I don't know of Jimmy Barbara asked out or injury does not back in the defensive possession. Especially Butler. Meeting offense who In the same reasoning behind. So. What was going on there? Eric's bolster said flat out that. He's fine. There wasn't an issue. Babo I've watched Jimmy Butler. For years and years to take him off the Florida eighty point is a struggle because of how bad he wants to be out there but to take him off the floor at the end of a playoff game. I just wondering if if there's something lingering that we should all keep an eye on but. In fairness the Spoelstra he did have a bunch of shooters on the floor, and I, know Jimmy has hit some big three's over the course of the playoff bubble the last few weeks but that is not a strength of his game. So maybe everybody is telling the truth and maybe Jimmy's GonNa be fine but my Jimmy radar went off at the end of that game big time because you you just can't take him out he wants to be in there until the very, very end. So. Certainly, certainly something to keep an eye on. That is absolutely something to monitor, but prior to all that happening game three nick in this series, and in these playoffs, the Miami Heat have been surprisingly impressive as a five seed. They're currently ten and two in the playoffs, and with this two to one lead, they still have over the Celtics. Their hands are still on the steering wheel and the one guy steering all of it. The one guy at the center of these comebacks gave them that lead is Jimmy Butler. So. When we look at Butler's clutch moments so far. Which one stick out to you. WHO As far as Jimmy in this series. Those first few shots. Down, the stretch in game one. Everybody's focused on Bam's block and it really is one of the best there's ever been. Sky. With the block and rejection. That is a ridiculous defensive play. Aside. From that, you're watching. Pablo. Early in those games especially in the first one, they're just throwing body after body after body. Jimmy. And in the fourth quarter, he's making tough shot after tough shot. Shot Praise God Jimmy Butler giving Miami the lead with twenty two seconds to go. Butler against Tatum drives them Deep Pang. Shot up and then and one Jimmy Puckett's delivering again, twelve seconds to go over time you start seeing steals and gave to your like there's no way in the world that he would have won that game without him poked away by Jimmy Butler all the way down the other end Butler leaves it and crowder puts it in Jimmy Butler in the last four minutes delivering for the heat. Heroes made some shots and and drag it has been there over and over but it's Jimmy who is setting the tone.
Boston - Report Details ‘Heated Confrontation’ Between Marcus Smart And Jaylen Brown, Who ‘Needed To Be Separated’
"Air down to Oh, they have a huge game three tonight against the Heat. Their season rests on it because, of course, no MBA team has ever come back from a 30 Siri's deficit. And it's time to see you. The Celtics are. Of course you read the reports. The athletic had the story on Friday. Postgame blowup falling game to Marcus Smart, Jalen Brown having a heated confrontation inside of the locker room they needed to be separated by their teammates. They then talked it out with Jason Tatum and Kemba Walker and Bride Stevens's room around one in the morning agent which Morales give ESPN had that is well yesterday. So this is a turning point for the Celtics and Are they going to fall apart or just going to be a rallying cry for them? Because there is one thing that's for certain the Celtics are a team right now. That can't close their close, but they can't cause it struggled to close against the Toronto Raptors. And they've struggled mightily to close against the Miami heat in games one and two of the Eastern Conference finals. And that is the reason why they're currently down, and that extends To the sidelines next since the coach Brad Stevens. You talk about Mike Budenholzer and some mistakes he made with the Bucks. Brad Stevens, also struggling to close and adjust to Erik Spoelstra and the Heat. So is this a Celtic seemed, is falling apart. Or is this a turning points? We get ready for Game three of the Eastern Conference finals on the other side at

"They're going to beat you just like they did. I mean, I thought this was serious was going to be even after the first half was, like, all right, we got it. We got a serious here, right? And then when it was all said, and done, all right, Miami just better, which is better. It's It's hard to dispute that I remember pointing out which game was that geezer was early may have been there if it was the only game that the Miami Heat lost their 10 and one so far. In the playoffs in the bubble, They're low losses, a double overtime lost. Think about that. How one point they've been for this thing I can't even forgot that it's crazy. Only lost in double overtime. And I'm pretty sure it was that game and I sit. No, no, it was. I'm sorry because they won the game and I said You know this? This should strike a little fear into the rest of the Eastern Conference because referencing a game from a couple of weeks ago, obviously, but I remember staying on the air. You know, the Miami Heat won this game and they didn't play particularly well, like, Remember that Yeah, like Hero was one for seven, and Robinson was not existed and drug drug a chatty, good game and even but there was a little pedestrian, but No. Last night. You look it you say Alright, as great as Robinson was with six threes. You know, Tyler hero was one parade from down. And you know Jimmy Butler was only 4 11 total with, you know the sub 15 points. So you say Well, You know how to help anyway. Great. Yeah, Like how in the world that they would. Yeah, seriously well, and it tells you that there's more. There's a lot more room for the other guys. Olynyk it a couple of threes. You know, in the third quarter that were pivotal. I know we hit one late in the third quarter as that Robinson was bombing away all night. But my point is, is that they've got they've got more answers than Boston. And when there's fluctuations in performance with the heat, there's other guys who are ready to step up. And when you get that with the Celtics, there's not no one else steps up. Yeah, you're right and or were they They step up, but they're not. It's not like I don't know, epic. It's not like an epic come from, you know, step into the moment and surprise us type of situation. Where is the heat? Have that With four or five guys. Maybe. You know what? I'm talking about Jimmy Bell until my 545 other guys they could step into that into that into the moment and be successful, which I mean. It's interesting because at the beginning of the season, I liked Miami Spoelstra. Well, we like is a coach, obviously because of his his time with LeBron and Dwayne and Chris brought in Chris Chris Bosch, and you know how he earned his way to that head coaching job. And despite not getting the respect, he earned the respect of some pretty important superstars. Around the around the MBA as well as you know, one of the great coaches slash executives and Pat Riley and so we don't think we discount and we still don't talk about him. Enough Erik Spoelstra and the job that he does in having all of these guys ready and in positions where they're going to thrive. And you know when you're facing a team like the Celtics, who were good Who run out to a 13 point halftime lead on you and you don't panic, and you just kind of methodically find your way back into it. That's coaching man. It's the It's the criticism that we had for Doc Rivers. A couple days ago. It's it's Ah, it's now become, you know the opposite for Erik Spoelstra. He is He's as good as he is. And as much as we know he's good he's on. He's not talked about enough because he always finds a way to have his team in games. Listen, I I've tried to throw his name in there. You know, when these conversations have come up, I've been quick to throw it in there, but it's just a quick insertion. So We don't gloss over somebody who deserves it. But you're right. You know, you don't talk about him like pop. You don't talk about it like Brad Stevens, even though you should. He's better than Brad Stevens. You don't talk about him like, you know, Doc rivers, good or bad. You don't talk about it. Like Mike D'Antoni. A lot of these conversations are rooted in failure or underachievement. At least with D'Antoni and with Doc Rivers, So you know, maybe Spoelstra's lucky We don't talk about him that much because things are going well, I think something else. This is going to sound wild. But I don't think I'm kind of getting to the point now where I might be prepared to say that. Am I prepared to say this on the year? I've thought about it enough. And, yeah, I am that Pat Riley is entering the territory now where he might be a better executive that he was a head coach, and this guy's one of the best head coach of all time. What makes you say that Because of the how he's well developed right? Well, first of all, his belief in Erik Spoelstra, which we were just talking about, but also the roster. Well, think about the people that he drafts Tyler hero Bam! I mean, everybody that he drafts works out. So the talent evaluations phenomenal. I mean, a point If Riley does this another 10 years Is Jerry West in terms of team development or organizational development. The one difference is that he's not bouncing around..

The Glamorous Lakers' Unlikely Leader
"So Kevin. In spite of being blown out the other day in Boston the Lakers are still the number one seed in the West and everything is sunshine and rapes around the staple center but a year ago. It felt like there was a storm cloud hanging over the franchise. I had magic Johnson. President Basketball Operations nations stepping down team fired their head coach. Luke Walton and then they chose Frank Vogel as his replacement awesome and there was a perception around here in Los Angeles that it was a pretty uninspired choice right in some ways frank. Vogel is the Ultimate Safety School. So for the Los Angeles Lakers Kevin Arnovitz is an NBA insider for ESPN. They went after Monty Williams former player who has immense amount of respect but at the end of the day he got a much more appealing offer from the Phoenix Suns. Tai Lue was a top choice. Lebron's former coach NBA Championship. Cleveland Cavaliers in two thousand sixteen. And what are the Lakers. Do they offer him a contract that I think it's fair to say was. Maybe not befitting a championship coach. There's sort of a standard now for for what a NBA coach gets in terms of the years in terms of money and this particular contract offer fell far short of that to the point where I think the public certainly the perception within the League was here of the Lakers doing it again. They think they're the Lakers. They have this golden or around them they can just offer championship. Coach is his deals. That don't reflect that pedigree so they don't get money Williams tyler walks not for another job. He just walks and they get Vogel. I used to do a lot of L. A.. Sports Radio and I remember this announcement very vividly. Los Angeles Lakers fans. They were not happy. Happy Kevin in fact they were furious. Vogel I think at the outset was seen as an odd choice for a number of reasons. One one is. The Lakers are the Lakers. And they have traditionally gone after coaches. That are either real brand names or have this royal. LAKER occur bloodline they are part of the Laker family. So here comes Vogel who is coming off. Two year stint in Orlando where he lost twice as many games as he won one could say no fault of his own. It was it was a young mismatch roster of players. But he doesn't have a brand name he looks like an accountant announced he's never played in the NBA before so he doesn't bring with him. The story playing career so for a fan base and a franchise. That's always been very brand obsessed. Why are you getting this off? Brand coach was very much. I think the perception an off Branko. Now I'm imagining frank. Vogel at the Grocery store he's like the generic. I Love Kirkland. I I think that sets up this story very well because you great value. Oh you use the Kirkland of coaches and of course. The Lakers are widely perceived as his ex hyper glamorous NBA franchise in particular with Lebron James. They're going into an off season in which they're going to be trying to get free agents. This is before the trade for Anthony Davis and here comes maybe the least glamorous coach forget fans for a second just people inside the game fifteen choices of who is going to be. The next Lakers head coach. I don't I don't know that Frank Vogel would have been on one ballot. I'm not saying Bogle can't coach Lebron's right that's different. So how did he get start. Frank Vogel got his start by by being a pest he was division three point guard for a genie out of college and he became obsessed with Kentucky basketball when he was at home on winter. Break when you're watching that famous Duke Kentucky lightning later catches He decides I want to be part a big time college basketball. He's going to leave his division three school. He writes letters to the staff at Kentucky including Rick Pitino and they basically send back a form letter. Thank you for your interest. This is in the mid nineties so he decides. I'm just going to drop out of my college enroll at Kentucky. I'm GONNA drive there. Basically without an invitation nation. And I'm just going to hang around the facility. Whatever anything I can do to get inside volunteer? Whatever they need and little by little sure enough he hangs around enough due to the point? Where Jim O'Brien who was assistant to Rick Pitino said Okay Okay? We'll we have the video room. which at the time video rooms have become like the very sexy place to get your start as a coach? Now Erik Spoelstra Mike Putin Holzer Dave Fidel but back then it was still kind of a newish thing and so he just camped out in the video room and essentially became one of the best young video coordinators in all of basketball and to the point when when Pitino went to the Celtics they ultimately brought. Frank Vogel Oh go along with them. And then when O'Brien took over he promoted him again and so little by little. He's sort of the He's the kind of the little engine that could of basketball. So he dollars. O'Brien to Indianapolis. And that's where he gets his first shot as head coach. How does that go right? He gets to the Fr- what we call. The Front of the bench comes a top assistant in an Indiana Under Jim O'Brien O'Brien gets fired and Vogel's the next Guy Up Larry Bird actually ask Joe. Brian looked this. Guy's really loyal to you. Do you think you take the job. and Jim O'Brien profane. Lee said absolutely

"And it's it's not to diminish that but but it's a different sport I will agree with you. what it is yes and for whatever reason it's not looked upon that way for all we want is a reason yeah just for it to be addressed with a coherent reason why the idea now. I think in your profession of of how competitive it is between organizations wins front offices owners are competitive with each other. How much are you ever willing to share with guys you compete against. I've I've had coaches in a league who who are great admirers of yours who'd say I'd love to build a relationship with them. I really we WANNA see how he does it. But you know Miami's a little more close off their. You've been in Miami your whole career. You haven't been the different guys have different places because they've worked. If we're you know lots of people but I think there's always been a sense of like the Miami Culture has been a little more. We don't we're not opening. We're not swing our doors wide open to see you how we do it but sharing among each other like you said when you saw him at a clinic and you're going. I don't know maybe I don't not that. You're going to give something away there that he had scouted her scene. But how do you guys view that within balancing act you know I think it turns out to be relationships ships. As far as I'm concerned I don't go out my way to call share and I get calls. They get a lot of calls and so does slow but it is. You know it's it's a it's a telephone you know when you go to a clinic or something you share with whatever you're trying to share but it is a competition still too and I understand. That's another thing that I've learned. I remember we had Riley opened the door. We had a practice I had practice at your facility because rows at anticipation ship. We'd practice at your facility and we beat you. Guys and Tim comes up to me well. They'll be no more practicing at the Miami Him. Eat you know and that's how you feel like. I have things that I'll do. Anyone can practice in our facility. I'll do that but then I have things things that I am very quirky about you know earlier when I was very quirky about if I saw my assistants talking to the other systems like what are you guys talking talking about what possible conversations right now and this is are complaining about. Ah There's like I say we're not quite as iron curtain as we used to. Yeah we do open up our doors a little bit and you know we don't really necessarily go out of our way to network and kind of an introvert anyway and it just kind out of lines up during the off season. I like to go visit football programs. Just because it's different catches my interest a little bit more on it. You know you talking basketball with your staff and the other people all year long. I like seeing something a little bit different. I relate to them and and it usually ends up being not tactical discussions but it always comes down to personality management and and that's what I find you know probably most interesting about this business. What's the one or two days you guys ever spent outside of basketball whether it was at a football football facility you around ballot check in Boston spinal. You've gone all over. Nfl College football what was one you walk out of there said wow how or a dinner with somebody who was completely outside your element and said I got more out of that than I would have to for a specific reason I saw Pete Carroll uh twice just because not because he's winning super bowls actually before his first super bowl there and there's more just his personality as a so much different than me. I have mentioned I'm an introvert and I like to seek out people. That are a lot different so two years goes you know who is going to see in college. Football is going to see a Dabo swinney any and I'm friends with Butch Jones is very good friend of mine so these to compete against each other but he's such an incredible personality as man if I could have like one percent of so much better coach and ideal relate to my players better but I walked out of both of those not only amazed at thera ability to relate and just the one in nine personalities but also just how you you walk out of their thinking wow. This is my best Ashrat in two days later. They probably have a twenty five other people say to care for me as well just his energy who if you ask anyone. HP Carol Everyone's getting the wrong all coaching and there's no way you see that you know how Bella check with the one for me just because he's so different and I had a chance to speak a couple of times and I love that's phenomenal to there. I would always go to their offense of meetings right before the game I would he gives you great access and you would sit there and I remember the one game they basically said what they were going to they do and they did it and then one guy is outside of sports that just blew me away as Malcolm Glatt well. I had a meeting with him and I realize I said I'm not very smart. You know at that but his ability to kind of understand people was incredible. Docs Bo this was this was a lot of fun.

"spoelstra" Discussed on WEEI
"Where ever you go. Newsroom J P thinly of NBC, Washington. He says don't see Chris Thompson or Trent Williams, very hard to see them playing Sunday. So Washington taking on Lanta. Washington's in the first place. So all right. See where that goes see where that goes. Interesting tweet coming from our friend, Chris Mannix. He says pressure on Luke Walton was inevitable Lakers. Even with a transcendent player like LeBron or not built to year where win in year one not in a unforgiving unforgiving conference. And he says remember the magic Pelinka regime didn't hire him age awards nasty since out of tweets has after witless two-game trip. Magic Johnson meeting with Luke Walton on Tuesday reverberated throughout the Lakers organization. The pressures on the coast to win sooner than later. So. No surprise there. This is. Tell me the guy who's who's coach? Lebron doesn't have the pressure. Erik Spoelstra survived in Miami. We're back home to Cleveland. David Blatt didn't. Josh here in LA, you're out there. I'm in Dallas. But. Did you expect Luke Walton remain the coach when LeBron James took over the team? Well, I mean, it all depends if they get along that's one of his buddies in. There you go Luke wasn't. That's my thing. Luke wasn't. He's not. So then they'll fire Luke Walton? And then they'll hire Tyrone. And there you go. Lebron will be the head coach again. Let me say this for for Magic Johnson, and rob Pelinka. Didn't hire Luke. Not better guy. And while they can see all the nice things. They want to about him. This is how sports normally works. You get hired. You wanna bring in your people who believe in your vision? And I'm not saying that Luke's not because I'm not they're not there. But we know when LeBron comes in LeBron James wants to come in with his coaches and his play he wants to be comfortable, and they put their money on LeBron. They didn't put it on Luke. You could find another Luke. So that's Tassone. I'm trying to save man. I'm not, you know. Yeah. And then once they're going to hire the new coach, and then once LeBron leaves and like three years four years then that coach that they hired. We'll be gone just like we saw with tyrod new. He look, and that's okay. Tie Lou championship. I mean that served the purpose served the purpose or LeBron leaves in. Let's say they've hired. Tyler maybe tight Lukin outlasting. Stay the way Erik Spoelstra has Miami. But you just have to know that LeBron James coming to the Lakers, in my opinion. Luke, Walton was a bumpy. He's going to lose a job they had a regime change. So you got new management and you bring in a dynamic. Claire no way guy's gonna live. Mitch Laurence wrote about this. And sporting news. We'll dive into this a little bit later on let me get to the game here. New Scruggs.

He orders like shit getting, but I did see Eric's bolster down there and I got orders. Did you do this to just the wife? I didn't do the program. I came down when the program was done, just. Thing and she, she took community and she dove headfirst literally into it. And I did go one day out on the boat. I went on Monday and I'd never done anything like that. I'm terrified of animals like in the wild. Like if I'm swimming in Venice beach and I see a fish, I lose. I've seen you around a dog. I'm like the opposite of Mason. Yeah, I'd rather be around old friends like Ryan Hollins new friends, but to be around the dolphins in the wild was an incredible experience. So Ben, what did she take away from this experience with the dolphin? I think she took away the idea that you know there's a universe larger than ourselves, obviously other something she knew already, but just the idea that these ancient species are down there providing so much wisdom and love and dolphin. Just wanna play. They just wanna be loved. They just want to enjoy life and be like a family group, but how you talking to him? No. How do you come on here? Look me in my face and tell me your wife is talking dolphins as possible. Why Ryan? I'm. Telling you man, it's real down. Your wife is in the holiest ick industry like, and that's something that most people don't believe in at all. I can just say, no, it's just all natural get. You talks on rhino preservative. Know the people. There are people who don't believe in that who think that that's just mumbo jumbo garbage. We're not really all it's just all natural stuff. Don't don't buy into the top, but you can talk to other humans without talking. You can just look bug out of Masada mining. Yeah, Yeah. can fill energy hackley. They wouldn't go telling me, you're like, hey, how you doing? How's your think LeBron's going to get out of the second round this year? No, they're not having. And telling you man, it was incredible to be around to be around that type of life force out over your mind. Right. I'll give you. I'll give you credit. I got in the water with dolphins one time, but like seven feet tall in the water, and they're fast like straw, they can. They could if they want their malicious, they could take you. We personify them as these kind to roll like. And you're not afraid when you're with them at all you feel loved and you feel taking care of and it was a little nervous really douse a little nervous. I didn't know how big they were pulse. You know what we don't. We also don't see how far deep under the ocean they swim. Like we think of them jumping out of the waves and the little spinner ones showing off. Joke him Noah's somewhere here this the cheese. God bless your massive. Knowing that you tell me dolphin, he's he's going to be coming to a big three. Upset with. Now they get LeBron James of Laker fan told me they deserve this for all the years of suffering. Well, they did. They actually, I think the Lakers have finally been repaid by the league be after the league interfered with the Chris. Paul trae the basketball reasons hashtag, never forget. So the league spent a few years. I'm just speculating making sure that they kept their draft picks even against some tall odds over the years so they can help rebuild and then they eventually got the Lakers back. The debt has been repaid, it's better for the Lakers. It is better for the league. So what are they have saying with? No, they're upset. I've seen some Laker fans upset at the notion of the Lakers traveling on Christmas day because it has been a tradition that not only the Lakers are a part of the Christmas day slate, but that they play at home since nineteen ninety nine the cr- they have only been on the road three times two thousand five and two thousand six in Miami..

"Dan was last co hosting the show with us before the piston job was Brad Stevens rookie year. I think we had them on the show. It stand told us, he warned us. This is the college coach that's going to be the guy they're going to be good. Is he the best coach in the league? I mean, Popovich gets the reputation for it, but is is right now, the guy, the best guy coaching that's two dollars to is the best guy coaching, Brad Stevens? Well, he's very, very good, but there's a lot of good coaches in the league. I will say this. I thought that he did a phenomenal job this year. Probably the best job in the league this year when you look at the play offs, also. You know, but but look Popovich Erik Spoelstra. Guys who've won championships. Mike dantonio has done a phenomenal job in Houston. Terry Stotts is done a phenomenal job in Portland. Alright, STAN. No, no. But this is. Coach worship. Saying there's a lot of very good guys in point and one of them out if I go on the full season this year from the beginning to the play offs, I thought what Brad did was incredible and the best jazz. What I'm saying. I don't believe in a long time in a long time. You and your brother have the same pivot. Okay. This is what you do. I ask you about coaches and then you praise the coaches. But when I say, is he the best coach? Your response is there are a lot of good coaches, and then this is your pivot, and this is your brother's pivot. I will say this though, which allows you to not answer the question. You use the phrase. I will say this though, because you're not answering the question. The question was is Brad Stevens the best? Yes, maybe no. Well, listen. Then I think I will say what you were going to stay. Maybe was. Sports talk airwaves I think have quite enough people willing to criticize coaches. I think that take is certainly not unique to any show in sports, talk radio. So having a little bit different viewpoint on coaches may not be all bad. It's gotta be Stevens or Nick nerves.

"Erik spoelstra who's a video coordinator before lebron elevated elevated him to greatness so from my point of view what lebron's accomplished has been more impressive than what michael jordan did i know jordan went six no but lebron has done more with less than jordan in my opinion you can disagree with them okay look we can come back around to it and i can dismantle that part of the part of the if but he still didn't we still didn't get into here's the biggest thing that's missing in all these debates no one's ever willing to move off a position your jordan guy you're a lebron guy you're a jordan guy or i offered up i thought durant was the better player this year i thought he was the better player last year in the league but no one's ever willing to move off of it well you know this is happening with the national anthem debate and politics and that's why this sports tribalism is running amok not getting really ugly i'm i don't i look i'm all for debating topics there's nothing wrong with debating top picks k put there is a time to which you go hey like look i thought durant was better this year because i actually watched the nba but sometimes really hard because the bron yes he played eighty two games but he and play hard defensively for good stretches mark jackson and van gundy called him out yesterday for defense and i thought that was a great moment because i was conserving energy your she was 'cause you ha you have to play those kind of minutes and that's what he did this year he also didn't practice this season which is one of the reasons is team took so long to come together because he was pacing himself so it's really hard to tell who's playing heart and who's not an the level of competition that lebron is playing against as opposed to durant playing against is inferior in in comparison anybody tell you massively inferior in comparison that said as somebody who i believe that kevin durant was the best player in league i'm willing to move off that position based on what i've seen over the last two weeks and i think durant was really good early in the series but he's in a weird place right now i.

"And running and so this is just a scary philadelphia team at this point they were world leaders yesterday do you think erik spoelstra can make the adjustments and win maybe not game too but maybe once a series gets back to miami i mean maybe you know i don't think that that either team is is quite as good or as bad as what we saw yesterday i do think billy you know we we don't know what they're ceiling is yeah that's the scary thing about playing them and obviously like i said they haven't lost in seventeen years now although much of that competition was against weaker speaker teams only playoff teams in that stretch but you know i thought that the game would be tighter yesterday just because you figure there'd be some some butterflies there i ten minutes for some of these other guys that really haven't been to the stage before robert covington and the fact that they were able to kind of swing the game the way they did i mean they were down by almost a quarter a quarter and a half into that game and then win by thirty i mean that's just scary you know i i i tend to think that there might be some things that can be done but i mean when you have the two best players in the series and one of them hasn't even been there yet so we'll see what kind of shape and beat us in one once he comes back but i i just tend to think that's a lot to overcome you know i think you can coach your way through having maybe the second and third best players series and not the best but when you are down the two best players series i don't i don't know how that works so i don't think they're gonna i went from thinking that maybe miami had a chance and that this would just seven game to thinking now that you know once.

"Thirty one minutes so going into this series there there are two storylines what kim spoelstra get this team to do against a young seventy sixers team how can he ski 'cause they have the advantage coaching wise right the the heat do obvious yeah i think so but yesterday especially coming out of the first half it looked like the team of the kids on spring break that went to the y and we're like hey we're here for a weekend we're gonna play with all the the old dudes that come to the y every weekend and that's what they were just out running them so now the story is going to shift to what can spoils to do and what can he what adjustments can he make because yeah it's one game and i don't wanna make a bunch of proclamations after one game the seventy sixers looked like the better team they're the younger team and the better team going into the series but they looked miles ahead of the heat what is supposed to be going to be able to do to combat what the seventy sixers do well and if they get past the heat without embiid and he comes back i don't i don't wanna do the the rust conversation but don't you you need like a game i think it'd beats five beads fine to he's fine he's fine too but i can also see a situation where the heat get a game or two at home and then the series is tied going back to philly i could definitely see that like i don't see a situation where spoil striking get himself a game or two in in miami after he seemed to games that can make adjustments.
