NBA 2020 Predictions
"About My tween twenty bold predictions now. This isn't just for the regular season. This is for the off season. This is the beginning of next season to these addiction that I think that potentially could happen. I'm going to say them here today. And maybe you can agree with me some. You may think this crazy in some you might agree with. We'll have to see my first pro. Prediction is that both L. A.. Neither one of the LA teams will not make the Western Conference finals. I think a team will beat them or since the clippers. Don't take care too much about seeding in the Lakers. Stay the number one seed if the clippers land four or five. They'll play the clippers in the second row. They'll play Lakers around. which would men? 'cause obviously semifinals matchup US and other Western Conference finals match. But I also feel like there may be a team that could upset me maybe Houston is probably the most likely that could upset one of the LA teams and. I think that they're going to keep them from making the the the Western Conference finals. I know a lot of people were expecting that to happen. A lot of people are wanting to happen. I'm sure it will be great for the Lee but I really think that that's something in my opinion that I think is going to happen. That's one of my first. Bold predictions of the twenty twenty season in further on my eh prediction is that the Golden State Warriors will form another super team. Now I don't know if there's going to be with Jaanus. It could be a cry towns because Golden State is monitoring situation but Golden State clearly knows. Listen with the way the League is if we want to be on topic how can we need to get an update US another super team together and I think that they're definitely trying very hard to get another another star player in there now. I do like that. Probably means that's the end of Draymond Green. But I think that's what they're aiming for taming to get their aiming to get another star in there to see to come back with clay and to come back with Steph potentially really they can make you trade for star because they if they do get a top three lottery pig. deathly do not be surprised. If they try to make a trade with that pick honestly they honestly could have just picked up an amazing asset for them because they could use that as trade bait in. That's good trait rate. You know maybe the team star is disgruntled. Maybe you never know. I mean this isn't somebody would think about like the sons have another bad year. We'll we'll give you our top pick and another guy. And we want Devon Booker. Obviously Yona how that work I mean you know. They're kind of doing the right now. And the end of the Russell even yeah no. We Really Devon Booker may be a better player Neanderthal Russell. But that's definitely a prediction I think could potentially happen. I think that the warriors warriors will form another super team. But it's not going to be as top heavy instrument of Kevin Durant who like the second best player in the League. That's why think if they got Jaanus it would be stacked because of state Stephan Klay can play like they play and then they completely put a better supporting cast around. Then you could say okay. Yeah this team is going to be very tough to beat. Even laker teams have a team. They may be looking up to but it will have to see because if they get any towns houses. This is a great player but we don't view him as view when Kevin Durant was there which means even though it would be very top heavy west conference. But that's when also and my pro predictions one of my other pro predictions. Are I think that revenue from the C.. BA will increase which will lead to more players undeserving of big major contracts. Getting big major contracts. I'm going to say any names. But it's like okay. Well I'll say this because I don't know if he's GonNa get it but there are people who are sometimes wonder now dre walgreens supposed to be a free agent this offseason offseason Draymond Green. We know he's not a guy who's going to score points we can do live. And he's a great gadget player. I would say but some people wonder. Would somebody pay draymond green the Max would they give draymond green that Max deal. That is something they definitely wonder about and like a question. Like why would you give you Max. If if there's more money to be spent draymond green could potentially ask for Max and if you like laundry a month you might give them close to it. I mean we already have players now. who try to sign that? First Max deal then take a shorter deal. Just didn't end up getting of that. Ten Year supermax dill. But you know it's one of those those things where I think that this will lead to more players being signed overpaid and I mean you obviously can see more cat room. It can lead the teams being in very weird financial situations with cap every team six Performing up to expectation and then you played a lot of guys a lot of money who may have never actually deserve the money in the first place so. I think that that's going to be something that's going to be interesting another addiction I have is. I think that James Harden will make it to the NBA Finals Cheer. I know that's pretty big. That basically means you're saying he's GonNa beat one or both La Teams. I think James Harden. This would be the best year for him to do it. I think right now this I flew. This is his best year do it. So I'M GONNA go ahead mcnabb. Oh predicts names hard. It's GonNa make the finals. These the rockets are GonNa make the finals. This may be shocking to you. But that's how I feel. I feel like that. Jr potentially do it. I feel like if he was able to average at least thirty in the playoffs and Russell could give him about twenty twenty three. That's fifty three between the two players and they have some good supporting cast. You can't forget about. PJ Tucker can't forget about Erik. Gordon Clink Appel. You definitely feel like they have all the potential attention in the world so potentially be a top team and so I would not be surprised if they end up being the top team they think they can be and making it to the NBA NBA finals. This year in basically just creating just such a great agree moment for the city Houston also another prediction. I think Diane if he comes back as soon as they say he come back. We'll still win rookie of the year. I think Zaylon has all the talents. Be A star of Zion. Comes back in balls out in just twenty points a game in gives you a lot of highlight plays. I think he will be able to squeeze out winning rookie year only only playing half of the year again. That's a pretty bold prediction but as I've anybody can do a Zairean can all takes his cause. Remember even the Luca one owned by a lot last year. You trae young exciting second half which made it interesting and don't be. We don't feel like John Moran is doing with Luca Danni last year so it's not as far fetched is not as it's not like oh it's completely impossible for Luca played so well and then trae young play well in the New Year but he's still play. Okay well it's like John Mirant is playing. Maybe the best right now. But he's not playing at local level from last year so of Zion can have maybe a trae young like surge in the second half of the season. I think he'll go ahead and win the rookie year. But it all depends on when he gets back. 'cause I do if he didn't get back to maybe mid February with that he wouldn't. It's only two months left in the season. At that point. He has to probably get back to move in the next two weeks and then just start going on a tear from game one because dial is full practice recently so he's clearly about to get there. Obviously you've seen him take jumpers you've seen him dunk Donc so I definitely things I on can win the rookie year if he gets back in time and my last bowl prediction is that the Atlanta Hawks will add a star player. This off season. I don't know who but I feel. They're gonNA add some but I feel like some of the issues they've had I flipped. They're going to add a star. Because I feel like you need to especially to make trae WANNA stay there because rotations rumblings that he might and I wanna stay. That may be something that you may want to do. If Your Hawks Front office you need to add some talent in their yep some good young talent but you're going to you know how it is as league view in a win you're gonNA have to give up that good young talent for solidified star. Obviously I feel like trays untouchable. But maybe Kevin Heard. Or maybe you D Andre One hundred maybe a cam reddish maybe push them shelby John Collins and I think they're gonNA make a trade for a proven star in this league and we'll have to see whoever that star is how far the Atlanta Hawks may potentially get because of it but that's it for me thank you for listening listening to the GMC football basketball podcast on the GMC podcast network.

"And from there, it's layup, or kicked Igwe dollar, who had a couple of one three big corner, three dream on a couple like they're just kind of getting caught in no man's land. And Steph is finding ways around him. He's getting to the free throw line. I'm interested to see if they trap those more aggressively. I'm not sure that's gonna be maybe they'll do that. Or switch them more cleanly. But, but Stephan Klay were just awesome. And that, that pick and roll has been giving everyone trouble for five years. So maybe there's not any answer to it. But yeah, I mean I'm interested to see how the raptors come out. Who guards coli I thought Andre I thought entre had kind of a throwback defensive game in a lot of game five like the battle with Kawai was almost an equal battle for the first time in that series. I don't know what else are you looking for in this game to talking about the game -freshing who they starting? I mean cousins actually, I thought brought that up. There's a place where I was like I don't wanna see cousins ever play again. He was so so so bad. A game four I thought they just can't even afford to have him out there at all. And by all accounts, he wasn't gonna play in game five until Durant went down. And he played pretty well. Does that give them enough confidence to rolling back out there to start the game? They wanna start small and if so does that mean Livingston starts again. He's not been great in the series does is looney. You know how many more blows to the chest can looney take? You know it's back to that numbers game. Interestingly the STA so, so you're. Their best lineup. Left would appear to be Steph, Andre Klay. Draymond. So let's just call those the four core. Guys have this plus looney.

"Bunch of high level free agents the possibility of teams like the Nixon Lakers who have been down at the bottom for last five six years rising back up in one moment. And now all of that is in doubt.

And if Durant, even if Durant does change teams the fact that he probably won't be available for the bulk of next season. If at all. Changes the balance of power, you know what changes which teams made you willing to go after changes his market a little bit. The one positive is Kevin Durant is such a great player. And there is so much a desire for him. I don't think you'll lose any money. He'll get another max contract from the warriors or somewhere else, just by losing K D warriors win game five force game six will be Thursday at oracle.

Now, they're playing for something deeper than all right? We want to win another title the plan for Kevin. They all said last night, it just how much data Boashan to carry a team overtime. We'll see.

Not just the will not just the desire, not just the wind, one for the gipper attitude, but actually enough talent and bodies because another thing dream on greens one takeaway from missing a game. Right. So like could get even uglier. Oh, oh my. Good point. Because on top of everything else. Happen last night, that really got lost in the chef was well, I would say this, I think they have enough talent wise, but this was the issue all along in the advantage in luxury that Kevin gave you. He made be margin of air much deeper. And you take him out of the lineup and you realize to Klay still isn't healthy and dollars cap is still bothering cousins, not moving around well, because of the injury Ashim dealing with into on loonie eight dollars that he wants to play in game six but he doesn't know if he can because of use shoes that he's still have the collarbone area when you factor all that stuff in the warriors have Duff talent, if Stephan Klay get rolling, and they get help from a couple other pieces to win game six and send it back to Toronto. But they cannot make many mistakes at all. That's what you have to, to watch for them. And I think they haven't they have the attitude and all the decline shades about Audie to win one for Kevin. I believe them when they say that, but if start turning the ball over at your defense is poor and Steph or Klay doesn't get rolling here in trouble in Toronto probably gonna win game six.

Do the Warriors need Kevin Durant to beat the Blazers?
"Before going down with this strain right calf in game five of their series against the rockets. K D was averaging thirty four points in thirty nine minutes per game. The warriors were able to take care of the rockets and six about Katie the Richard. They need him to come back quickly to win this series against the blaze. No. And I'll say. With with the warriors only had to play good basketball. Right. And they could beat everyone else without him. They have to play great basketball, and they are capable of playing great basketball. So they don't need him. But the level of focus that they have to play with and their room for error, obviously Rauscher substantially, but if the warriors played great basketball, even without Katie they can still win a championship. I feel like with Steph smiling like you you kinda saw him. Look, they he knows that they need K D. But there was a little rice smile on steps face when he was doing what he was doing in Houston. Yeah. I mean, I remember talking to staff the first year that Kevin Durant got there. And there was a pride to him that he doesn't like to show us. Sometimes there's a, you know, if they didn't get Kevin Durant. Like, she still believes that he can go and be the guy that wants Seventy-three game without Kevin Durant. So I I think they're in this place now where they they believe they can beat the blazers. I think they would have a harder time in the finals if they get past Portland because they won't have the best player on the court. Right, right. If you're John. Janas or choi- if they don't get to if they get to the finals? I don't think they have the best player in the court and in years. Do you think he's do you think why this better than Hawaii? What I'll say this. I'll say that Steph before Katie got their one-two MVP. Right. And then he took a step back because Kevin Durant was so great. So I'm not ready to say that camping Durant off that team that Steph isn't a top two or top three player. Like you saw what he did in that second hand he had his worst half ever followed up by his best happy ever. So that lets you know that there's a lot more in their him and Claire both in their prime. Right. I agree. It's close clear both in their probably this series, though comes down to whether or not the warriors back court can stop the trailblazers back, quite right. And when we say words backwards. I don't mean. Stephan Klay, trying to stop Damian CJ. I mean, Andrea thank Klay matching up with CJ. Dave. And that is historically been a tough match-up for those. Yeah. No, it's going to be a great match up. I think the fact that both of these teams are banged up. Right. I think you've gotta give both of these teams a credit for being so greedy. So tough not worried about their team who's not healthy. We're just going to go out there and play our best basketball. And I think as a compliment to them the these two teams have two of the three top scoring back courts in the NBA warriors were second and the blazers were third Houston was number one. With James harden having this crazy season with that said when you encompass everything offense defense, the whole thing. How close are these two backwards? I think I still give the warriors. Yeah. Right. Because I'm I'm also including Andre Goodall in that. Because I I he he does take that defensive match up when they go against CJ it. I mean, it's it's closed. They've narrowed the gap, but you know, Klay Thompson as a two way player. I don't think there's anybody on the blazers who could match what he does Andrei as two way player.

"Do you trade for? It's all about getting the right personnel. Who knew how to play the game play the right way. And hope you get a coach doesn't screw it up. I think I've asked you this before I saw Steph curry playing college. I would have never guessed. He would have revolutionized the game. Talking about Zion coming in. I think he's an obvious kid that'll work. What was there was there a moment early with Steph curry where you were like, whoa. This this is because I didn't see it coming. Did. You know, I didn't see coming on knew that he could be a factor because of his shooting skills because he shot the heck I've everybody was Davidson but to to have the overall game, but he has to take his game to a whole new level. He works out. If you've really does he see great players never satisfied with what you do you spent the offseason not working on the things you do. Well, you spend the offseason on trying to go ahead and refined shortcomings that you're having your game. And get yourself to be a more real around the player. And this is what Steph is done and he's doing things now. They're just absolutely phenomenal. It's he's one of the most exciting players that ever seen. He is worth the prices mission to watch him play stuff that he does he in clay take shots three point shooting. You know that most for most players they would be terrible shots. But for those guys they're not because they make such a high percentage of them and some. Of the other shootings. You see some of the percentages of the shooting at the playoffs game lately. I need. Oh my God. They were like give a visible. It was almost embarrassing. I mean, so those teams going and playing against the warriors of the warriors are other game. How do you beat the warriors shooting? Like, they do if they don't shoot better percentage that they always face you like that he gets the finals either those teams get there the warriors. They're they're in big trouble. I mean, I didn't even know how then even wind up Denver lost. Because you know, the Portland shock. What fifteen something percent, some percentage and beat them. I mean, oh my God. I mean, I was like I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it because the choice of shots. You see? It's possessions that you have to take pride in the possessions that you had in the port the possessions also take quality frequent shots some of the shots that these guys take just horrible. They not bad Stephan Klay at times, but most players they're bad shots tonight, Portland. Golden State Steph curry against Seth curry.

But we start today with the MBA playoffs. Let me break some news to change heart won't believe you really heard. Okay. No one has been strong. Most people don't believe really are and the few that do don't really care. You look like a soccer star flopping around on the court in the first quarter after Draymond green. Inverted slap to across your face. You flop so often you'll wind so often about officiated that no one really knew what to make of your bloodshot eyes last night during game two of rockets warriors. Here's what we do know. The rockets are down to to a warriors team that isn't playing all that. Well, and the harden lead wining had no impact on the officiating. In fact, hardens wines impacted the warriors energy effort. And emotion far more than it did referee, Scott, fosters whistle. The complacent warriors play with a passion that had been missing Steph curry defendant harder than I've ever seen him. Draymond green defended rebounded and annoyed. Like Ventas Draymond green. The gentrified crowded. Oracle Riina had moments of cheering the reminded me of the old warriors fan base. The group unspoiled by three championships in four years. The rockets winding backfired Scott foster was unfazed Houston wasn't the rockets blew the game in the first quarter. They turn the ball over nine times in the first twelve minutes, they trailed by nine points when the quarter ended they never really recovered from that deficit. I blame James harden when you see yourself as victim you become one. Sure. Can barely see. But just try to go out there and do what I can help. Martinez. Free concerned about thing. It's pretty blurry right now. So. Hopefully better day by day. All stop it. James all the I rub the squinched the blinking. I'm not buying last year in the NBA finals, Draymond green slap. Lebron James across the face and legitimately injured. Lebron's left out the bron- dropped fifty one points and put on one of the greatest performances in playoff history. It took a JR Smith brain far to ruin that LeBron performance put some vise in it by some goggles and stop all the theatrics James the warriors are vulnerable. Stephan Klay aren't shooting like the splash brothers the damn clippers to two games from Golden State at oracle. You no one wants to hear any excuses about officiating or injuries. The warriors beat Houston with five players on a night when they made six fewer three pointers than the rockets harden is hunting sympathy more than championships.

"stephan klay" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"Like as you mentioned. They just didn't they didn't play that. Well, especially teams James harden nine for twenty eight didn't have the best game a lot of free throws. But the conversation about this game is just about the officiating and find now we all know what it's about. It's about what's hung the landing zone over calling it. We know what it is Zaza play that took. Wow. Out of the of the playoffs. They changed the rules. They enforce it. You played under these new rules. What did you take away from those first half calls? The officials didn't make well yes, there were some that were missed. I don't think that that last foul that that he was trying to get on. Ondre Draymond wasn't it. I will say this as a shooter as shooter the minute at a defender has you worried about anything other than your shot. Whether it's hitting my wrist or or landing where I'm at or getting contact than the defense that the Fender has one, right? The only thing as shooter has should have to worry about is getting the shot off coming down straight down the only thing. And so when they're worried about other things, that's where see my opinion is this when they weren't getting the calls were supposed to in the first half. Then they started exaggerating it in the second half to really show what was going on. But that actually hurt them. They should've just continued doing what they were doing. And but it's easy to say that behind Mike, of course, James harden was behind Mike after the game. And he had this to say about the officials called those. Man caught a game. How supposed to be called in. And that's it and live with the results. But when you especially we all know, what happened, you know, few years back with like that can change in tire series. Just call it a game. I was supposed to be called. And with the results in his plan of symbol. I we just talk about Chris Paul. He was wearing somebody else's like jacket. There was a religious store ninety everything was too big. And look this thing in this goes both ways. Like right there you saw like Steph curry someone go under this is not. Yes. This might have been more about some of the times that happened with the warriors. But we wanna protect all players rightly Stephan Klay both came into the series with with with her with her ankles. If if that were to be Steph with his surgically repaired ankle, if that would be Klay who's already banged up war, your fans would be ballistic James this call every single time. And then he goes up underneath staff now step and then look at then if let's say the Houston Rockets were to win because Steph were to miss two games with a bad ankle. That's the only reason why because James harden would underneath them very similar to what the Spurs fan say about the you know that series with you know, Leonard going out, right? So that the argument is more about the integrity of the series. I'm not talking about foul. I'm saying like we want everything to be clear because we want to protect these guys. So that we can see the. The best product in the best game possible. Unfortunately with those mis calls early on. You started affect the product. You started to these guys in their ability. Now works both ways. There wasn't is. Not like, they only miss calls on Houston. They got everything. Right. Golden state. That's not it. But we can at least be honest and say those first als- early on could affect how much Klay Thompson plays could affect like how much space they have to give James harden, all of these things go into it. So I don't wanna give like Houston excuses. And this is not an excuse. This is more about hey moving forward. This needs to be addressed. And make sure that it's handled properly rush watch a lot of tape and they prepare for the game..

"On on balcony Bartok miss. Don't be ridiculous. I was I was very false. I was actually pretty unsatisfied with with this victory from the raptor side. I wanted to close game. I wanted to see everything on the line in the fourth quarter. I don't think this game really taught us anything. It did. The warriors play so bad second. But back the back of a going into this game the worries with clear fiber Ashley with quad has. And then you understand. Cutest goes out as well. I think this is the most impressive two games. The wrap is applied whole season low. I think you're right. Maybe maybe in franchise history. So say when you look at the back the back to beat the LA clippers and then. Lost by twenty at home. They scored ninety three points. They shot very poorly. They play defense very poorly. It just didn't feel like anything close to their ceiling. That's not satisfying to me if I'm Rafter STAN I want to see a good game. I want to see again just to see what everybody's got in the fourth quarter. We didn't see that whatsoever. Take that still think those complacency from the war is because of the situation that the raptors warming in well, especially it was quite being think really pumped to play against and then thirty minutes before the game. He's deemed out with injury. And I think that deflated them I think that had a big big impact. Yeah. And and you look as well, you always think that the warriors are going to have that avalanche. Ron with I go on that. Staff, and then clay and Kevin Durant. Hit three stories, but Stephan Klay last night, just really couldn't hit anything. They're wide open. Exactly. They they had a terrible terrible not shooting the ball. But the good thing for maybe they secretly Maupin. For me about this for the rep does is they never at any point gave up or took their foot off the gas knickknacks was made sure that they didn't give the warriors any sort of dialogue or any sort of chance to get back in because one of the threes can trigger a bigger run at didn't happen last night. And again the reference coming in on the second on back. Now, that's a tough little trip there on right now very impressed to answer. Again. The initial question are the raptors better without Kawhi Leonard false in the playoffs. No doubt. You're going to need some 'isolation sort of play some scoring in clutch situations. It wasn't last night. But you're gonna need that is the best guy in the raptors to give that that's going to happen in the playoffs. You need a guy like that. Yeah. Superstar to go. Get you a bucket, and oh, yeah. He's one of the best perimeter defenders in the league as well. But maybe in the regular season. This is true in all Nick nurse even talked about it after the game. He said we rely a little bit less when Kalis out of the lineup because Mr. good chunk of games here. Now we rely less on individual scoring. We play more as a team. Maybe it moves around a little bit does. I think that's fair again that can get you a whole bunch of wins. Maybe the regular season. It changes in the playoffs as we've seen time after time at a time. Sure. The injury Judas. I mean, this is amazing night for fans. But this was a bummer Draymond green. And look I like the point this up. This is not dirty. Okay. I know Draymond green has. Recall areas reputation at times for kicking guys. And all that he took a swipe in the ball. And unfortunately caught JV on the thumb and it's not good. It looks like a kill them. It did he got surgery. He's going to be at a month. So that's a bummer because this was the best we had seen JV play against the warriors up until that injury. So that's a bit of a bummer, but moose came in. I mean, this win also showed the rafters depth. I mean vanfleet starting this game. He was picking up curry full court. He was hitting big shots. You had moves coming in again turned into a little bit of garbage time..

"These calls Daniel. All right. So speaking, the Golden State Warriors reports out of Golden State are that Draymond green. And Katie got into it on the bench Monday night because dream on made a comment to Katie about his impending free agency. So I ask you shot or no shot. Katie actually got what he deserved from dream on for the way, he is handling his future free agency shot. Yeah, I'm gonna say shot as well. Cap. I'll tell you. This was a long time coming. Kevin Durant signed on. I said, yeah. Equate to another chip, obviously. But there's gotta be at some point. There's going to be an issue with all these egos. They come in and Kevin Durant. Not committing like everybody else's said pay cuts. Whatever I am a lifer here. I'm Golden State this where I wanna be I will do whatever I can't make it happen except for Kevin Durant. And Kevin Durant was the new guy on the block. So they welcomed him into the fraternity especially guys like Draymond green. Who are the heart and soul of this team saying, okay, you can join our family, but you got to fit into our culture. It's like when Adrian Dantley join those bad boys teams and Billy a beer said. This is how we do it here. When you come in here superstar and it worked with degree. We'll Kevin Durant lack of saying. I'm staying an opening the door to potential free agency has wrought those guys the wrong way because they're saying, hey, look, we come in here. Just to get some hardware. Get out. What were you? You're bigger than us. We're all really good. We're. All saying, we're staying. So when I became a little bit of drama Draymond green pulled that Trump card and said, hey, bro. I don't need to do this with you. You're not even in really with us. You're just a part time family member. So I see where he's coming from. I wouldn't have done it on the court with the cameras there. But this is definitely something that is rubbing guys like drain on the wrong way. Probably Stephan Klay history. Mods the mouthpiece to say this thing's gonna come apart. Now, maybe not this season. But they got enough talent to mask it. But that is not come by going on in that locker room put show me a team. It really does have that. You know what I mean? Like, I mean, Michael punch Steve Kerr and the joke was made there. But that was in the middle of a heated prac-. My point is there's you think Steve Kerr was like this is my guy for life after that. To the face. But look at Bobby and Mirta it's like what you get hit in the face. I don't care what it is. Like, you look at somebody different by point is yes, probably drama. I think it breaks up after this year for certain. But I think they've got enough in a tank where it still should equate to another championship for them this year. Danny. Last one Jimmy Butler suits up for the seventy Sixers tonight. Hopefully, we can be done hearing about Jimmy Butler for a while. It is safe to say the Sixers are the team to beat in the.

"Luck ready to go at it again. You're three and, and it seems, you know, like like there's a different vibe here. Very different vibe. Yeah, there's there's a lot of confidence. There's a lot of I, I'd say easily the most exciting media day that we've done now. Let's let's bring a little championship. Yeah. How about that? The last time I saw this young man javale McGee and I were on a bus at Klay Thompson golf, and javale was was nice enough to attend that of an even though he's not a huge. Golfer, I didn't see after. How'd you do horrible. I was a blast fun. It was what's the weakness in your game? Just like. He's been modest part of you. Is he so tall? Yeah, that it's hard for tall guys, but I play a lot with worthy over there and he he's starting to get it, but you're even taller than he literally. I literally the golf tournament was the Saturday. I got my custom golf clubs, Friday, so I had never used them to break them in. Yeah. All right. So javale you obviously had some options here. You at won two straight titles with the warriors. Seven footers, don't grow on trees. Why l. a. why the here and why do you think this is a good spot for you? I mean, there's so many aspects of plant is one getting play. One regret his players in the NBA and get into play with one or two will say the best franchise ever in. So I mean, all those things came together after winning two championships, I felt like it was my right, the right thing to do. What do you learn more than anything else from winning a championship? It's hard work. It's not easy at all. It might have looked easy, but especially the second, the second one, the second was way harder than the first one person I feel I we surprise people on new new thought we were going to win, but the second one was hard like it was a lot of trials and tribulations that we went through a lot of injuries and his lot of things that happen, but it's not easy at all Japan. One of the reasons they hired Luke is they want to bottle up what they got Golden State, so you can get it going down here. What is it? What did they have a state that is he kept bottle up, Stephan Klay, their elite shooters, but what's what about their culture? Do you want to emulate down here? It's a, it's a, they put in your mind and go state work heart behalf fun, like you're not getting fined for stuff that has nothing to a basketball other organizations. I've been where we've been fine for where we come to practice and we don't wear jersey were a t. shirt. Weren't you wear your jersey fine. Like the has nothing to do a basketball. So certain things that in in in in Steve. Kerr, and I feel like he gave this to Luke also is just a lax mentality. Like as long as you guys are working hard, they're doing the place, they're playing defense, they're doing what I'm telling them to do. There's no reason for us to chastise them all time. How did it all come about you? I think when they approached you, well, how did they? What did they say the Lakers? Yeah, they literally the will. I got information from before will LeBron has done, and then they called me on my phone..
