"All right, let's talk about THT. 'cause I'm seeing a discussion going on in our chat here about Taylor Horton Tucker and what he's capable of and that offensive out of the floor. So rob palinka and Frank Vogel both independently. In different interviews, essentially said the THT is going to be asked to replace Alex Caruso and kentavious kabola defensive end of the floor. And that made me wonder, it THT? Is Taylor Horton Tucker the starter. And there is some evidence that points that direction, right? I mean, look, you've got not only what they just said that he's going to be asked to replace those guys and defend the other team's best perimeter player. But he also got paid like he's a starter, right? He's the fourth highest paid player on the team. Fourth highest, and I know there's a big gap. There's a big gap between LeBron, Russ, AD. They're all up there with their max contracts. And then you've got everybody else out of minimum. And then THT in the middle, you've got Kendrick on the taxpayer mid level. But still, THT 31 ish million that he got over three years. Everybody else is either on the minimum level, which is about 5 and a half million, what Kendrick nunn got, or veteran minimum. And then THT is up there. So clearly the Lakers are expecting more out of Taylor Horton Tucker this season. They're expecting him to make the leap. Is he going to start? I think it really comes down to his shooting. I think he can make an argument to be a starter. If he can shoot league average from three, if he can't, I think it's a real challenge, putting him next to Russell Westbrook. I also think there's a little bit of skill set duplication..

"For changing too much of the roster after winning a championship and then respond to that criticism by changing almost the entire roster this year, but you're right, it is more of a step back towards veteran players rather than going young. But I also think that you're correct and that the process that the thought process of going with guys like Dennis shooter, that was not wrong. That was not the incorrect thinking because if that works if that hits, you've got a guy who fits Anthony Davis's timeline. Same thing with montrose harrell. If those things work, you've got guys who fit AD's timeline moving forward, you've got younger players, unfortunately, it did not work and the Lakers have pivoted and adjusted on the fly. But that doesn't mean that the entire roster is old. The one guy specifically, you know, I made a joke about this on Twitter last night. Taylor Horton Tucker is not even 21. Mini camp is in Vegas and Taylor Horton Tucker is still not 21 years old, and yet the Lakers gave him a big new contract. This off season, they paid him, he's now the fourth highest paid player. Now there's a big gap, right? You've got your superstars, and then you've got veteran minimum guys at the other end of the spectrum. You've got Kendrick nun on the minimum level. But THT is now the fourth highest paid Laker on the roster. They're obviously expecting production out of him. What are you going to be looking for from Horton Tucker specifically this season? Can he really step up even though he is still just 20 years old? Yeah, I'm bullish on his potential. I think he's scratching the surface. And I think, you know, when young guys in particular get a vote of confidence in terms of an extension from a team, sometimes that leads to complacency. Sometimes that leads to more empowered play. And I think because of what Taylor Horton Tucker's talent is and his versatility as a defender and a score and an outside shooter, I think that he's going to use this to build off of his previous seasons. And I think that because of how veteran late in this team is, they're still going to need that injection of energy to preserve their veterans legs. And so I think it's a win win. I expect really good things out of him. You know, it's not like he is going to have the pressure of having to produce on a night tonight basis, like LeBron James and Anthony Davis will, but he does, so he has some little bit of a security blanket with that. But I think that he has the expectation that, hey, he needs to be consistent with kind of the adage of we know what we're going to get at least a solid player on a night tonight basis. So I think that that was a great show of confidence. And I think the fact that while I disagree with the.

"That's a guard. That's gonna open things up. And i don't know if carmelo offers that they maybe try and go get some more. There's more shooting but you know i'd much rather than who would have got like a cow over type of player. That can open everything up a ray allen. Somebody that lebron you know has floors with. And he's trying to put a team together like he had the year before because he tried to go. You've moved in. He realized that bill guys like the white house. Our guys like mcgee was more important to the championship. Then what he believed he thought they were expendable and now he tried to put them back together and brought the white our back well and listen guys know what they're getting when they sign up with lebron james he is going to hold you accountable credit crazy work ethic and he is going to expect you to come with the same level of work ethic every single day but i think a guy like mellow. Who's been friends with. Lebron for years and years and years entered the league in the same draft class back in two thousand three. He knows what. He's getting into veteran minimum. He's been taken that for the last few years. I think he's going to be happy hanging out with guy. I think they're gonna push each other to get can be a very good situation like you said. They're obviously adding spaces there. Obviously adding shooters to fill out the roster. They're obviously looking for guys who are willing to take that bet minimum. That's the weird balance. The weird formula the weird recipe that the lakers have to subscribe to this year. There's gonna be crazy right because you think about like is carmelo that much more of a upgrade or upgrade at all other than marquees. Moore's right because you think similar type of player you'd think marquees got a little bit more like left into his legs. He was a good three point shooter where he was he was a guy that was a three guys. Well so you know. Now lebron trying to have interchangeable pieces and he's trying to get guys to take discounts. I don't know if he has enough guys to take discounts. Or if you've got enough young guys there. This is gonna be crazy right when you think about this team. He's think about the fact that they're going to get the one thousand nine hundred ninety six bulls treatment because it's a star power. What they've been but they're gonna get every team's best you know best shot because you know if if you were a guy that grew up in you start playing basketball in college like in two thousand ten and above then these were your idols your heroes and nobody loves people love taking down their heroes and say hey man. Did you see what i did to this guy. I mean you. Think about alan iverson. What he did to. George with the killer crossover guys are gonna be trying to make these guys means and they're not the players that they used to be and they're gonna have to deal with that same energy of guys coming at them. You know. we remember job iraq coming at at james harden and talking to them like you better know like guys young is going to get up for these guys it is not just carmelo. It is not just russell westbrook the lakers also signing kendrick. Nunn to a two year ten million dollar. Prove it deal. He turned down significantly. More money to chase a ring. His role will predominantly. Be a shooter. You also got me monk. Also shooter you got. Taylor horton tucker who is expected to have a bigger role this year. So again clearly. Adding guys minimum contracts who want to win a championship. We will continue taking your calls here on keyshawn jalen zubin with parks scott and jen ladder but first kishan will zubin is brought to you by door dash.

"The association because this nba free agency frenzy has been a fun one to follow the lakers yesterday announced that they are signing carmelo anthony. I don't know if that took a lot of people by surprise. Obviously so many people familiar with the relationship between lebron james and carmelo. Anthony drafted the same year. They ben pals. They've played together on olympic teams. They've played together on all star teams like in the east back in like two thousand twelve ish round there but never on the same nba team. So it's obviously a big day for them but the lakers also signed kendrick. Nunn they resigned. Taylor horton tucker this on the heels of course of westbrook this past weekend it seems like mellow and westbrook or a ring chasing right now not an issue with that though you told me you don't like the ring chasers. Well not so much not so much like westbrook right. Because i mean he he he was traded right and he's still making a bag right. Carmelo right veteran minimum knowing that he's better than last year but knowing that he's better than that right. Yeah at one point. Carmelo was on the streets and people they know if he can play in portland kind revitalizes his his position because when he was in houston he thought he still was a starter and that class with everybody else. They're dantonio already had a short lease for him because their history so he got rid of him and you know he was out of league month and we didn't think that carmelo can play. But he's the subsidies row. He's a great insight. The microwave vinnie. Johnson comes in and he's gonna get buckets and he's a guy that can come off the bench and spark your team but you know at this point for him to play for the minimum and go jump on the best team to me. That's ringing chasing. Shades of karl malone and gary payton and i got an issue with that. Because you know he's going to be a very small part on if the team wins the championship and i think carmelo and banning when he makes it his game much rather have win a game where he's a huge contributor but at this point. This isn't a narrative where he is in his career. The brody can still be a big contributor. So that's the big difference because they're expecting a lot of him carmelo supposed to be. You know the cherry on top. Yeah last year. Anthony had one of his most efficient scoring years. Fifty field goal percentage fifty percent from the floor which ranks a second best in his career. He's morphed into a useful role player off the bench in limited minutes. And if they can use them that way. I think he can be somebody that they can turn in certain situations. I'm more interested in how lebron and westbrook play together. Seemed to be two guys who like to have the ball in their hands and if they can figure out a way to coexist on the floor. Now the interesting thing is and we put this on the espn milwaukee. Excuse me we put this on the kishan jalen zubin. You see. I went into awesome. Is it right there talking about my own show. Espn milwaukee we put it on the keyshawn. Jay williams zubin poll. We're asking all the guys out there who are trying to win their first. nba title. Who for who you pulling for chris. Paul carmelo anthony. James harden or paul george. Which player are you rooting for to win their first. Nba title bart scott. What say the people for me. I love james harden because the narrative about you know. God who i think should have one more mvp sandy..

"Let them know you came from us. Yeah so the the raptors part of this is getting you know facilitating gets them groin. Dragging 'cause the the adopted him will see my instinct. Is that gordon. Targets is not going to stay in toronto for that long. But maybe he could. I mean i think there could be potentially teams interested in him on the trade market there. There are some logistical challenges. There but also getting purchased chew. Who can be a talented player. I think if in moore's back out but certainly has Raptors highly regarded player development. But on top of that day came to terms. Remember that was that gary trent junior four. Norman powell trade and the raptors got trent pending restrict free agent and at the outset of his restricted free agency. Gt j. gets three years fifty four million with a third year player option. Yes so clearly. The right decision by trent and his representation at clutch sports do not engage on that josh. Richardson four years fifty three million and said he gets more guaranteed with a player option over three years or rather than four years so pretty good job there and this is kinda good piece of work here. I mean he's getting paid the same amount as some of these other shooting guards in the market essentially and now always keep in mind particularly with these guys. These younger players there can be a lot of funny money involved We'll get to the funniest funny money later in terms of the reporting but you know this could end up being two three million dollars a year in incentives. And you never know what those are going to be right now. So we'll caution particularly anytime a kind of extension or a restricted free agency contract for a young player and this is also like the first contract. The agents are very concerned about the number that gets reported. So wouldn't shock me if you end up two or three million per season less than this per year in terms of the guarantee might but the player option is really a huge part for trenching so he got himself paid like a very high end. Starting shooting guard good for him at his age. And then are i think something else we can talk about. What the raptors is that we wondered and besigye jury still has the latitude to make wholesale changes but typically when those sorts of deals happen like. Let's say they were trading. Fred van leader pascal siaka. Especially if they weren't taking back as much sal return typically those happen either drafter early in free agency because that's one potential trade partners of the most flexible. It is not the only time to make those deals but as we made it through august second and none of the other raptors changed cities that to me made it more likely that the team is going to stay more salt. That doesn't guarantee it. But it's something i thought was worth mentioning. No absolutely am the wraps. Had they not done this law reciting trade. They could have functioned as a team under the cap with the in the sixty million dollar range. Maybe a little bit more than that if it if they'd done a few things as soon as they wanted to hold onto chris boucher regardless but instead they traded for garage drugs but they also got precious to choose who i actually really like in this rap system and they don't have a great option. It's he might even start at center next year. We'll see they still have the mid level available. They still have the be a available as well if if they want to bring in another center potentially or they could move on from dragon open up since as but it seemed also for the raptors. The opportunity cost not having cap. Space was not huge. Because you know. Jared allen resigned and a massive deal that they probably wouldn't want to pay with cleveland and there wasn't really another player maybe rashawn homes would have been the guy but if i would probably rather have a truer than homes not maybe next year but for a team. That's not necessarily competing next year. I would rather take a jewish. So i think that was pretty good now. You can go back to what the offers were at the trade deadline. It sounds like for example. The lakers offered didn't even include. Taylor horton tucker and i don't know if it even included any draft picks and i would probably value chew of more than what would have ended up being like the number twenty two lakers pick. I've really liked. I've seen for him. Maybe the other people feel differently. So i think the wraps prolly did. Okay here we get. We just don't know what the offers were at the deadline. But they got something like it wasn't it wasn't in the end and insane decision to just hold onto kyle lowry like they managed and i think they had a pretty good idea. That miami was coming for him inside and trade talks. 'cause they probably got pretty far down that road with miami at the deadline as well so i think toronto ultimately did pretty well here. We'll see how trent junior that's he's a good player. I like him. he's probably got seru to grow. But it's also a pretty penny for gay trendy near we'll see what happens with targets as well as some other teams who's point guard might be interested in trading for him and maybe the wraps could get something from those teams by taking back some bad salary or they just roll with him. They could well be better next year even if they don't really add much except the suffer around the margins here. Let's let's stay on the high end point guard train and well actually no i i i wanna i. I got one more little thing. We've got to get to here. I because to tie up the pj tucker threat okay. Because that is we told you we. We told you about the walkie box and ownership and it does seem like jaanus resigning. I bet you. If you're honest where free agent they might have ponied up a little bit more. Pj tucker and clearly. It seemed to have been an issue of money. There's reporting of tucker potentially returning on a two year. Twenty million dollar deal to the box but Ono the tax man came calling for mark lazarie and west edens wallet and whether that was ever out there. Not maybe that was. That was put out there by tigers representation early on to sort of put the pressure on but tucker at an instagram post. He thanked the city of milwaukee But not necessarily the bucks organization and he seemed based on his statements that he fully intended return. And your colleagues samay. Mika reported basically the same as well that it was really just the bucks did not come with anything near miami's offer due to the tax consideration. Yeah and considering. Milwaukee just want a championship with a miniscule tax bill because drew holiday. They wanna championships His bonus pushed them over the edge. That's concerning especially because there's no way for them to replace. Pg tucker and he was a vital part in they will get dante's even chance. Oh back but tucker was was essential for them winning the championship. And it's concerning to see a team this good you know. This has come up before and they did win a championship but to see a team. This good set it aside for primarily financial reasons in tucker's case they had fiber there. This is not a circumstance of we just. We did what we could and he just went somewhere else. No not only did they have the full capacity but he signed completely reasonable contract elsewhere. And based on what. We've kind of seen. It seems like he was very open to coming back. So it wasn't. We did everything we could and he just chose the. Ocd can think about okay see with ranters some other those that does happen but this is not that case. The bucks did retain bobby portis. It is a two year nine million dollar deal with a second-year player option. That sounds like it's non bird rights so the bucks retain their taxpayer mid level exception. But who knows if they're gonna use it. I mean there aren't there..

"I think you had an easy first round series and then you went seven seven seven eight against hall of fame caliber teams mutate dallas detroit. Yeah all in a row. And if the lakers. I i picked from the beginning lakers and seven in the series so it looks like you were right and well. They win it and six but i just don't. We have lebron on our team. I think tony if you agree with this michael. I think there's more pressure on phoenix. Because they're never going to have a better chance to knock right bryan out then with no anthony davis and two of the three games at home. Yeah i think the lakers have proven. They can win on the road. Let's see if the sense can rise out unless these young boys who are in the playoffs for the first time. Handle the pressure tonight of this kind of a must win game for because they don't want to get the lakers homequote again. An ad might be able to go on thursday. Yeah by the way. Eight seven seven seven seven seven seven ten. Espn you can also email the show. Venice mesa g mail dot com. And you can tweet us at venice. Mace at la ireland michael thompson. Have you been on twitter a couple of days ago. Yeah i was up late Listening some rock and roll. Why because my put my golf swing on twitter michael. It's not bad really. Yeah he's getting good. What's everybody looks good on the range everybody. I want to see what you do. When you're number one tea and you look down that fairway and you know you slice it right or you hook it left out of bounds. That's what i wanna see but may michael. I think swing look so good that he should commit to an eighteen. No no no no them. Nine are not used to be able candidates. Come on man doesn't have to stop over eighteen. Yeah he doesn't have the stamina. Go to back nine gonna have a cart even that mentally though. He doesn't understand what to go. Man that's a whole. I mean that's the thing i'm finding out is that Golf is what percentage do you think. It is mental. You're allowed to smoke on the golf course you're going to smoke makes. I'm not chris. Morales will be smoking a cigar on my behalf. Okay well i was talking about you know. Yeah a lot of guys. I play with a have a vape pen. Let me tell you how no chance i would have. If i was high chair. I would have no my slave. You might make you relax. Me's yeah i would have no chance. And you'll giggle after every shot like i will wives shores memory after every shot. I trouble finding michael. I have announced that if the lakers two things do these two things tonight that they will bring home a victory the first one is they. Gotta get back to playing absolute lockdown. Devious the type of defense that that made them the number one defensive efficiency game in the league this year you know in the last game and this is a little bit in the weeds but in the last game they they contested only forty of eighty five field goal attempts right. That's the worst. They've done in the playoffs in february. So that defensive game to and phoenix and number two. They've got somebody. Anybody has gotta make some predictions day. My on my What do you call it The the keys of the game may said that. The four guys have to total eighty. Three points lebron gotta get thirty dramas gotta get twenty schroeder and i call him schroder because that's the way he says gotta get. Eighteen coup has to get fifteen that adds up to eighty three and then the bench has to give them thirty. That's one hundred thirteen points. If they could do that they win the game. I was with james worthy today. And he says he wants to see more mark assault. What do you think of that. I mean yeah as prayed well so far. He's had twelve points the other night. S bacon his threes. So sure why not he I didn't think he could really be productive in this series because the way phoenix place fast and they spread you out but so far. He's done a good job. He i think he looks really good. I i think he looks good on the floor. I think he's an excellent facilitator. I think he opens up the middle. The floor. I think the key gets wide open. I think it gives people room to but i slash. Yeah i still think they should bring heroin. Harold carol brings up energy. carol seems really oust off. Michael do you agree with me. That the reason guys like harrell. And taylor horton tucker haven't played in the series is because frank vogel prioritises defense right. You've got to be a defense. I can't wait for him. I mean what the defense mark assault put up there about deandra eight and every time we look up he's donkey. Yeah so on on any of our centers. Yeah harold does seat steps in the paint and takes a lot of charges gets in the way. Did you see his tweet. After the game herald after a herald with say just. This worst effing feeling is wasted time. Oh yeah i understand how you feel. He the place competitive. He feels like he can help this team. I don't blame them for being frustrated. He should be frustrated. I think this is also michael. A big game for schreuder and for drumming short because he's froder throat. Did you laker promo. This is dennis schroder. I am going to send you a youtube link or he says how to pronounce his name. And you're not pronouncing recess froder in the liquor promo. Okay i will send this to you. Plus they forget it. I'll send you everybody. Plus the kid and peanuts schroeder correct the kitten schroeder right. No question about that. That is that is not up for debate. But michael is calling him schroeder. Yeah because that's the way he said in the liquor promo so why if he says that that's his name. Should i call something different. I think that whatever you wanna call him he's got he's got a score twenty blow to get paid. Yes this week this week. You mean let's go to Is it maurice in la chevelle. Mauri sean seven espn. What's up man. Hi guys are you guys doing good. I wanna bring up with ireland. Said i agree with him. I feel like how Michael shorter We have to have him step up. I noticed ireland said that he's playing for his contract. But i believe he's been playing like that all season but it's also a problem because i see him that he tried to hold the ball too much he doesn't move the ball around he forces in the paint and it's kinda feel like that contract. He's messing up with his play but we need him to drop at least twenty two but we also need lebron. I feel like you have to have a huge night tonight. Twenty teen finals game one type of night. That's what we need from braun and the rest of the players to step up. We gotta win this. Oh yeah great. Points yup excellent. I wish you could give them the the free games speech today. There you go. That's a good speech. Good speech i coming up next for you. What seth rogan has got an interesting fresh.

"Chris very career right right he. The nba story easily can be told without him. He didn't win an mvp. The western conference story can be told the sioux thousands two thousand and tens. You know what i mean when he he only for long footnote that you would have about him is when he went to san antonio which was different for them signing like a free a big time. You know a bigger free agent. When he went right i was it but he doesn't end well okay. But he didn't get away he thought he was. I agree. I totally agree. So i i don't think he's close to an hall of famer and we need to stop this prisoner of the moment and warning to give everybody induction into the hall of fame because they careers over. What does come from now. I'm with you arrive and look again. You said it but it bears repeating lamarcus. Aldridge had a very good career. A very good career he was a perennial all star. Seven time all star five times. He made the all nba team for his career. He averaged nineteen points at eight boards. He was very good. But as our friends skip bayless rob would say it's not the hall very very good. I mean lamarcus aldridge to me. He didn't put his imprint on the game on the league in any way. And that's what i think of with a hall of famer like the impact and people wanna point to the five all nba team. Rob g thinks. He's a hall of famer. Rob g thinks taylor horton tucker's 'bout to become the next damian. Lillard too but that's neither here nor there but rob g point. Oh five all mba.

"You're going to get away with things against them that most teams don't give you right you're going to get driving lanes that most teams will close off. So Taylor Horton Tucker was not as pressured tonight. So perhaps they're not allowed him to slow down a little bit but still it feels like there was a bit of a maturation in th DS game over the last two games. That doesn't mean it's going to stick that doesn't mean that he's not still going to be a roller coaster where we're going to see some bad games or or to see a few good games, but I felt like this was one of the first times this season were the only times that season where we've seen tht look like he was very very under control for almost the exact. Our game and he looked like the game had started to slow down for him. You know, there was a season I believe it was what two or three three seasons into the Brandon Ingram is a Laker experience off. We saw things click you saw the game start to slow down and suddenly without having to put in as much physical effort. He was still getting to a spot wage because he was reading the game differently. He was processing things differently and I'm not saying that to you. She's making that leap right now. That was when Ingram went from being hey, this guy's kind of underperforming what's going on here to suddenly things click then they continue to click when he got traded to the Pelicans, but for THD, it felt like that. Again, I'm not saying he's making that leap. This is a bad team. He did this against but it was a good sign and I'm really excited about seeing that from him because I think eventually not even not happen this season, but eventually that's going to be more than Norm as far as what we get from him. I think his touch his read passing. The ball is really really impressive. I think he's I kind of feel like he's a better passer than he understands then he knows he is because he can really pass the basketball still make some mistakes out there, but this was a very strong performance from him. Back into the chat Tyler Hanes from YouTube piggybacking off of what I'm saying. Here's the Trevor with this recent stretch from tht. Would you bring him off the bench before Caruso when he comes back? I you know, I would not I would not I would not bring them off the bench before crew. So I think Caruso has proved himself. He's one of the best defensive players in the NBA now, I would play tht over West Matthews absolutely suck. So I'm looking at my bench back court as being Caruso and then and then tht those are my two guys, but I'm not playing him over that like, I would trust Caruso in a situation to the fourth quarter more than I would touch trust THD and ghd is a much more versatile player than Caruso is a much more Dynamic player. But Caruso is a guy that's just steady and just makes winning plays so given the fact that the Lakers our team that's contending for a championship..

"It's it's both ends of the floor what we saw energy-wise defense offense. It was really great to see and to see them finally look like the Lakers from last season and that's that's when we saw tonight again. I'm not expecting them to play like this every single night, but it was good to see that they still have this in them Kyle kuzma. A lot of people still are not huge fans of his but overall again. I thought he was just fine and his versatility was really important. Especially after the Lakers loss Markieff Morris for the night. Okay, let's do one more. I want to give away one more lakersnation.com license plate frame and then we will call it an evening. Actually. Let's just go with this. Let's finish on a positive Bryant Mendoza from YouTube in all caps. So we know he's serious here, right? Who's your MVP tonight? Besides LeBron James and Anthony Davis. So we take LeBron and AD off the table figure. This is kind of like the anti Master Lock, right? Who do you think was your Lakers MVP? But you can't pick LeBron and you can't pick Anthony Davis. Which is good but that's a good question. You know, it would be between I don't know if you know Transit standing off. Is there somebody I'm not thinking of maybe that can be possible but those two guys kind of stand out. I don't know what you narrow it down to those two to Trevor. Yeah, I would probably be picking between those years you I can't believe they'll show we didn't mention yet the kcp came back tonight. So welcome back kcpt. I thought he was solid and shoot great. But you know, it's good to see him get back out there on the floor. But yeah in terms of overall impact, I'm looking at Trends and I'm looking at Taylor Horton Tucker and and it's tough to pick between those two guys. If we can't pick LeBron or Anthony Davis, who would you if you had you've got to pick one? Who would you please? Oh my goodness. I guess you could throw a commercial could be in there, but he was only 145 shooting..

"He had. He's quite still is in that position because Paul George 818. No, no, it's Zach. The Clipper thing this next summer is gonna be fun to see. I mean, I think this e mean Tyronn Lue's and ridiculous higher. I think I don't know what they're doing. And the Clippers, like the Cleveland Browns, like only to clean around could lose that way on Lee, the Clippers could screw up having Paul George and Kwai Leonard and The number one screw up was trading. All those picks to get get Paul George, But you had to do that in order to get cool. I'm not saying that you had to give him that much. You say you had to make the move to in order to get collage Kwai was coming with Paul. George is coming with him. And the funny thing is, like I said before the Clippers did everything To beat the Lakers or keep people away from the Lakers. That's all they did. They don't worry about anyone else. They did the trade not because they were afraid. Kwai was going to go back to Toronto. Like if quiet was like, Oh, you don't get Paul George. I'll just go back to Toronto Clippers in care. You know they did the morning quite going across the Lakers. Stupid. Yeah, it's hilarious. You now mantra is Harold is now a Laker because of all this, and it's gonna come back to bite the Clippers because their metallic Montrose Harold, I think it's gonna be huge. You've run your franchise because of one team. It makes no sense. No, it makes no sense. But that's that's Clippers. I mean, it's gonna be I mean, the Tyronn Lue higher eye to eye. I'm not a fan of Tyronn Lue is a coach. I don't think he's no. I think he got very into a very lucky situation. And it's funny because Forgive me for saying this people because he turned out to be a great coach Greg Popovich to me got very lucky in the situation he looked into because Bob Hill was there was a bomber brought about hell. Bob Hill was there and got hosed because there was an injury to David Robinson. That injury to David Robinson allowed them to draft him, Duncan so they bring in populates to do coach Duncan and Robinson. So he's not gonna say that you can't fail. When you're coaching Duncan and Robinson and they did. They did hit on Parker and Ginobili. They did hit on those home, but That's Ah, and they did hit on Kawai. They traded George Hill. That's why look to the same thing when he got the job in Cleveland. I mean, all of a sudden he's with Kyrie and and LeBron and it's been well who would you want a championship? Because if quien Kevin love don't get hurt. David Black coach that team the first year when I got to the finals, so I mean it's Z mean exactly mean David Blatt was that coach and got into the finals and quiet, Kevin Love get hurt, Which is so the West, I think Uh, e. Don't think it's up for grabs it all I think that the Lakers airheads head and shoulders above every other team in the West. The only problem I have with the Lakers right now is their rosters. Little imbalanced. And this is the I'm watching them play. I've watched the two. They're two games. Um Horton talking by the way Beast. Yeah, And he's going to cause a problem. Not a bad problem with a good problem. Um Didn't like the way Dennis Schroder played the first game. He didn't play last night, but I don't like the way he Hey, just loose with the ball just drove me crazy. Taylor Horton Tucker is gonna cause the Lakers to have to make a decision. Your roster is on balance. You've got important, Tucker. Shrewder Caruso, KCP Matthews and, um, uh, Quinn cook. So you got six guys. Quinn cook really going So five gardeners. You have McKinney? Um, they fucked me every five guards. Guards, right? You can't play five guards. He just can't do it. You've got to make a decision. KCP stays. Let's see Matthew States. Crusoe States because he's just solid and the fans love him. Yeah, So now what do you do Know who the guy who are the odd man out right now becomes important. Tucker Intruder. Right. If I know why did they make the deal for shooter? Because you don't know what you're important. Tucker. Intruder has the skill that's that they needed, which was the three point shot. Exactly. But you don't know what you had with Horton Tucker. That's Summer Lake. Have there been a sermon league? He could've played in your thought. So now you're stuck in a situation. What do we do? If Horton Tucker can play this way? Now there's gonna be situation where LeBron and 80 don't play all the time and guys are wrestle her doctor's gonna get time. But at some point, you're gonna have to make a decision. Shooter falters and Horton Tucker plays well, that you're going to start. You're gonna put corn in Congress get those ministers shrewder than what you do with fruit, Not everything right? And I see I see that so the point being in the West. It's the Lakers I want I want. I wanted to get to the East real quick before we started in the overnights in the NFL stuff for next weekend. Is to me. The East is completely up in the air. I couldn't even tell you who the best team in the East is. Right now. I know people tell you it's the Brooklyn Nets. Haven't seen Kyrie and Kevin Durant play together and to me they have too many guys and only one basketball. So I'm not I'm not high on the nets being then the best team in the East. I don't think Miami is the best team in the East even though they want the East last year. Yeah. I'm not sure where But where Boston is. I don't think they know they lost to me a key player in Gordon Hayward because they lost the shooting aspect..

"Heat yet things have changed a lot and in particular that we've seen in the bubble that has changed is the young players have had more time to grow look out different Taylor Horton Tucker is now compared to where he was last say November. It's a big big difference because the season is stretched on. So long we're seeing younger players make bigger impacts as though they're now in their second year because time-wise they kind of are, and so that's where suddenly you've got tyler heroes stepping up Bam at a bio hitting another level. Crazy. So the Miami Heat have some weapons that maybe they didn't have. When the Lakers played them back and say November right. So just keep that keep that in mind I, DO WANNA get into your questions and comments here. So let's dive into all of those coming in from Youtube from facebook from periscope I'm taking your questions, your comments. Let's Talk Lakers basketball for a little bit and get ready for this match up with. The Miami Heat I guess the the big narrative is spoke versus Lebron. If there's anybody that's GonNa know Lebron James Well one of the people it's really gonNA known. Erik Spoelstra. Does bolster have some tricks up his sleeve in order to slow down Lebron. James. That's going to be really interesting to see and also let's not forget the Miami Heat traded midseason for a guy named Andre Ebola and they got him for just this eventuality. In case they ran up against the Lakers in the NBA finals. Now I know it's a little bit of a surprise that the heat got through to the NBA finals most were predicting the Milwaukee Bucks maybe the Toronto Raptors here we are the heater there, and now they have a guy who won a finals MVP by Defending Lebron James Back when he was on the Golden State Warriors and Andre Adela. He's going to have a little bit inside knowledge on how to defend the brand that doesn't stop them but they're mamie he'd have IGUALA. They've got JAE crowder it. Also Jimmy Butler they've got solid wing defenders to send Lebron James but that said. I think it's going to have to be a big anthony. Davis. Series, we're going to have to see some physicality from him inside I wouldn't be surprised if we see a lot of Jae crowder versus Anthony Davis when heat goes smaller and going to use that size to his advantage for sure. People saying you're making the case for the heat to win. No Look I. I'm just telling you guys I would I'm picking the Lakers to win this series. There's no question about that. Okay. I'm just trying to say the heat don't overlook them don't look and I don't think there was any team in the playoffs that you should overlook. The heat or a good team and they're playing at a very high level..

"So what you have to do is use the power that they have in their platform as superstar athletes, a superstar league to do as much good as they can. Into as Dr Creative Brown, said instead of being a non racist organization in accepting Atas. You're limited. To actually go out and become for the NBA to become an anti-racist organization. We talked about the Front, Office and coaching, but also ownership and wind up teams go up for sale that they are allowed every opportunity to go ahead and be a part of that process. Because what Michael Jordan is the only black owner at this point in time, if not mistaken. Okay so at that has to change as well and hopefully that will in the coming years, so we could be more of what we should see. As far as the League is whole. That would be great to see going forward I know there's many steps we need to take. Not only just the NBA but -ociety as well and I'm I'm looking forward to those steps being taken in the coming days weeks a month, but we need to keep that that awareness out there not now, but going forward especially, when the League starts and have that platform to go ahead and be able to create that message that helps change going forward positively in the future. I think Rafael's right that those games. Once we start playing. Again are going to see viewership like we've never seen before. And that's an opportunity to really get. The eyes of the country focused on what's important and why? We're playing the game that should be part of the whole message that the NBA puts together with the players, and I'm hopeful that we're gonna see that as as things move on, you know the networks. It's a good opportunity for the networks to to do their part. You know just the same thing with the sponsors. The sponsors of the team that that are supporting the Lakers that then the even the advertisers who buy advertising time. You just have to coordinate this whole thing as a campaign if you will. and. That's something that I think the NBA has done well in the past they just needed. Take it to another level now. We'll tell you what my friend has a lot to look forward to. In the coming days weeks and months we will see more am hoping for that continual message to get out there and I'm hoping for it to get out there with the NBA and also a lot of other places as well. But before we get on out my friend, demarcus cousins is still out there and free agency and the free agency period will start very soon. I think later this week, not mistake or The same time the players that are going to commit to Orlando testing starts today along swab up the nose as de well okay, but not the mouth just long. Okay, because I did the mouth when I test I actually I think the players are getting something because by remember. If you violate the protocol and break through the bubble, so to speak, then you're subject to the long nasal swab. It's almost naked. They're using that as a deterrent. Make sure that otherwise you'll get the other kind of nuts, but if you actually go out and violate the bubble, one of the penalties is you get the nasal swab test as opposed to the saliva test, I've taken the mouth swab tests. Now is nothing so I. Don't want to do those tests so I i. don't want to be in violation. I don't want to be violation. Buoy, cousins whether or not he will resign with the Lakers and I know that Dave McMenamin I believe on one the Lakers shows on ESPN LA stated as. There's interests there from the Lakers organization, and also about possibly a waving t h t Taylor Horton Tucker in order to get him and I see that as the only alternative time, and she has a promise very young. Is it worth enough to keep him on the roster, or do you want to go ahead with boogie cousins? You can't get rid of cook because he still got another year. That's not that what people have to go ahead I o wave. Cook Quick Cook. No Cook has two years. He has an option for two, so he probably will opt into that, so you can't waive him and I. Don't see other real options unless you wanna go ahead and just cut waiters already or cut marquee Moore's already which would be defeating the purpose of signing them in the first place, right? The I. You know I was I was actually really hoping that the League was going to expand the rosters from fifteen to seventeen. The No us some talk about that, but that apparently analysis died out. I thought it was an intelligent idea. Just from the standpoint of being able to get a couple of the guys would start practicing with the team, and so forth just in case ended up losing two or three players because they tested positive. But without doing that and having to wave of player. I don't think there's any question I i. You know I I love dht's potential. I know a lot of people who watch the G. League consistently say that. He has great instincts, but he still has a long way to go. He's two years away from being two years away if you will and the thing with boogie cousins is. The Lakers have to sign him. It's that simple even if he doesn't play a game. They have to sign him. Because somebody else will if they don't. And that means all of the loyalty. They built up for this entire year and the and the chances of getting him next year..

"Because guys that can make the game easy during the teammates. You know, automatically develop connection and guys enjoy playing with him. And I think he's going to be the friend because he's got life and quickness in really good anticipation, except Greenberg ESPN college basketball, analyst, of course. Check him out on college game day and of car across the family of networks here at ESPN. So the kid the Lakers, drafted, they get they bought into the second round or made a deal for this to get into the second round and they take Taylor Horton Tucker on Iowa State. I look at him as a unique kind of kid. Seth I mean a shooting guard, basically at six four hundred forty pounds of seven one wingspan, basically, the lettuces of small Ford. But the body of power for like what do you see there? Yeah. He's a position with CC. Today's position was not a great shooter good enough shooter. Big body. Physical long tough got a little bit of the city game to them. Fearless guy, mature body, which is so important, and a guy that has some upside, I mean, you know, to me, because of his body type athleticism is one very good. One of one player and a guy you can move in the action and a lot of different places, and they're getting they're gonna get him on a minimum. They gotta find a bunch of do, get on a minimum, so they got they got to try to find a way they're gonna sign some free agents. I'm sure. Oh, yes. But he's a big body kid with very good skills wanna one game and, and a guy that you can move around and attacking matchups, and I think you'll be very physical potential. Very good defender at the next level because of the size is length and strength. Yeah. I just feel like you have a guy with that kind of wingspan, and who plays already on the perimeter with that kind of body guys on the perimeter aren't built like that. So he's going to have an advantage defensively, you know. Yeah. Defensively pay. Well, George he'll kill they'll back back. You down. But he'll he'll bang you as a perimeter guy to get the ball where he wants to get it. You know what I mean off the bounce? Yeah. And like he's he plays physical offense. You ever I about physical defense. The dude place physical Athens in line of ways. Interesting. Interesting stuff. Let me ask you a question. Speaking of physical, we'll go the other direction bowl bowl. Why the drop in your opinion? No position. Who does he guard fragile? You know, he's not Kevin Durant enough for the Kevin Durant comparisons. I mean, there's only one Kevin Durand you can shoot it. But you're gonna find guys better should people. Forget, Kevin Durant is a world class shooter with guard skills. This guy can make the shot, then surely does not have our skills. Does he garden? Like when people get underneath, and can get anywhere. He wants to go get he protect the rim. You say that Wesley can protect the rim. But someone can move off the spot so easily. I just think that his body and, and who guards becomes really just a hard thing. He's not gonna rebound because he's going to get knocked off his spot. He's, he's what I call. I break guys down into prospects and suspects suspects or guys that things really have two phone place for them to be able to, to make it and it'd be impactful his pure suspect. All right. Last thing for you. And this is just more of a big picture thing. It's more of an MBA thing than a college thing. But the stuff with the way the NBA draft is handled like the hats, these kids are put on hats for teams that they may not even be paying for in the NFL in the NFL draft. You know, obviously that stuff gets turned over very quickly and because of the weird rules of the NBA like we have these situations..

"For Lakers fans to make their way to Vegas to hoist banners and celebrate Lonzo ball or Kyle Kuzma, watch him pop. I don't know if there's a lot going on for the for the Vegas Lakers seeing this year. However, who is that player that you would tell basketball fans in Los Angeles. If you're going to be out in Vegas summer for the summer league go check him out. Well, I mean, you know, it depends who they wind up getting on the roster because they're gonna see I think the Lakers, don't necessarily have to go out and get another superstar to go with, with LeBron and a AD because they also have cow coups on the roster. And people seem you know, way too many people outside LA, maybe in LA seem to be forgetting that, that they've got a guy that, that they decided to keep even though they're going to trade away higher picks. You know they traded away to number two picks and kept him. So that tells you how could they think he is can't be? And he was he was more highly valued. I believe that, that both Lonzo ball or Brandon Ingram. But I think they have to go get guys that compliment LeBron AD at to some extent. And if it means a, you know, a few players rather than just getting one star they have to do that. So I wouldn't worry too much about the summer league. I'd worry about more what they're going to put on the floor the exhibition season whether played Staples 'cause the summer league getting, you know, it may may be it may be fun to go to bagel and all that stuff. And watch that, but, but I don't I don't see anybody you know, kind of talking about how great the summer league was last year. When the when the season what's poorly. Yeah. For sure Jay, what do you make of the kid? They did draft the second round Taylor Horton Tucker from Iowa State. I mean just kind of a freakish unique kind of body with that kit. Yeah, it's a different type of player, you know, he's really only six four but his arms, go forever. I think as wingspan if I've ever I seven wants to I watched the play a bit this last year, and some in Maui, and, and was kinda ease kinda like a, you know, he's he looks kinda like Charles Barkley the way he's built. He doesn't play anything like Barkley. He's a little bit ball dominant..

"Robbie we discussed before this Iowa State win over Kansas. The different styles of play Bill. Self told us before the game. It's not really a style that his team plays well against an Iowa State. It was able to work there four guard work for themselves today while we were wondering who's going to break. I it's going to be Iowa State. That's the ticket guard out and go with two bigs or will it be Kansas who has to take a big man out and go with four guards took about seven minutes for us to see David McCormick was not gonna play much in this game. Just nobody on the four that he could guard. So the pace favorite Iowa State. They get out in transition didn't shoot ball. Well, but the defensive improvement that we saw here in Kansas City. They grind went out against Kansas state. Who's the ultimate grinder in this league? Then they do the same thing. It's kansas. They don't shoot the ball terrifically. But defensively they were good. They were tough. They really played together and impressive win. Impressive weekends. Brian was playing their best basketball going in the NCAA tournament. So Iowa State talk about that defense was a great defense against the likes of Dietrich Lawson who really struggled in this game. Specifically in the first half. He missed so many shots point blank yet to say it's a little bit of both. I mean, we saw in Iowa State team that contested shots at a high level in the first half. Now with that being said, I thought loss of ninety five percent of the time. He's going to make right jump looked. He drove the smaller Taylor Horton Tucker things that he's done all season for whatever reason today just did not go for him. But you gotta cry the defense and today they were locked in. They make things tough on Dietrich Lawson for really thirty two or thirty three minutes of this game before he is able to get into any type of rhythm. And honestly this team plays both under the floor. There is scary team here in March. Tell be a big twelve it looks like they may get seven teams in Iowa state's gonna go in red hot. They had lost six of eight coming to Kansas City three wins in three days. Iowa State five times to the big twelve championship game five times a winner. They beat Kansas. Final score seventy eight to sixty six for Robbie marquess.

Here's marquess assure brick. Thank you very much Kansas has won two of the last three big twelve tournament titles. Iowa State has won three of the last five and Robin the jayhawks their streak of regular season titles ended at fourteen straight last week and many of their players last night after the wind said they're locked in on getting this trophy tonight. They absolutely have something to prove here. And for the first time in probably ten years. Now this tournament takes on an added meaning for Jayhawk team that has become accustomed to winning big twelve regular season championships hasn't been the case this year. But so far they've got the job done. I thought they hung in the game last. Tonight with their rebounding. They went big kind of beat West Virginia at their own game Dietrich Lawson and also David McCormack getting after on the glass, then Quinton Grimes really got going made a huge impact before the half. It completely changed the game. As we look at Iowa State their season came to a virtual halt for the last three weeks of the regular year. They got back to cyclone basketball mcwhirter finals, they hit thirteen three pointers. But last night when the shots weren't falling. They actually improvised and impressed beating the ones he Kansas state was impressive. They're toughness. That's kind of been the MO on them as they are not a very tough team. And last night, I thought they matched candidates toughness, and they got after on the defensive end of the floor weathering a storm where they just didn't shoot the basketball very well six at twenty two from three. This is the best shooting team in the big twelve conference Taylor Horton Tucker who had an excellent core or final did not play. Well, actually got bench for the end of the game going to need him to to play. Well, the end of the day Marielle Shaq made big time play when it counted and made big time shots at the end of that game last six. Big twelve tournament champions have been either Kansas or Iowa State. So it's gonna be seven straight wins. Regardless of who wins tonight, they split to meetings in the regular year. But the last one was almost eight weeks ago. What are you expecting? I just think it's a coaching chess match, and it's gonna be a deal. We're going to see tailing Horton Tucker at the four guarding Deedrick Lawson who can flip that matchup, containment Horton Tucker make Kansas go small. That's how Bill self had to play Iowa State in the two January games. They went four guards with Marcus Garrett at the four. Now, we've seen a Kansas team that loved the flight to big Dietrich Lawson, David McCormack, and if you're Bill self you're trying to put the match the other way, you wanna make Iowa State play too big play, Michael Jacobson and camera together. Well, this place is going to be bonkers as we approach tip.
