The Los Angeles Clippers Have Fired Doc Rivers

"Another myth another legend was fired Bob and I don't you were shocked as I was I, didn't see this coming where Doc rivers we had on the podcast you and I are both huge fans of doc as a human being as a coach. I don't. I. Don't know where I stand right now. Obviously, he is blown some big leads the latest being one in the bubble. Denver and with a team that let's face it. Steve. Balmer paid doc rivers big money to win a championship not not be eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in the in the western conference semifinals so Valid or not valid to let doc rivers go. I knew that we all knew that losing another three to one was not a good thing to have on on anyone's resume to do it twice in. Three years. And the do it with this owner as you said, who invested the overpaid for the team I think even by modern standards that teams are worthy he he got a little giddy with his two billion dollar plus purchase of the clippers the Lakers we could see but not the clippers. So okay, he's invested in this and I worried about it a little bit but I didn't think it would happen. I thought it was a possibility of Steve Bomber angry. But, I, thought it was an of course couching it. It's mutual ha you know coming out of the usual walk away from that money it's the modern. Thing to do that say it's mutual nationally I felt badly because I am very proprietary to a doctor and I have communicate with him already. But. It's understandable that an owner. Successful businessman. Odyssey's bomber is a highly successful with that investment. I I don't know what I don't know Jeff is the level of his own personal basketball acumen. I don't know how much he thinks. He knows he knows more doesn't knows more than that part I don't know you know. Here's what I'll tell you about. Here's what I'll tell you I. Don't think this was all Steve. Balmer. My guess is Jerry West who they pay a ton of money as a consultant. Okay. As a consultant. Yeah. Good point is Jerry West played a significant. In this move and now the question will be. What what's next in the big thing with doc and you and I know this we've been around enough. Great human being great communicator. But the biggest words that you would hear from players about doc dating back to the Celtics was a little bit of a Country Club, right? It's it's easy doctors a practice much. Older players veterans love, them. Again it's where you want to go to and the latter part of your. Extend Your career. and You wonder if that played a huge part here because certainly the clippers didn't look like there were in tiptop condition in the bubble weather. It was Knox fault whether it's back that mantras Harrow had a death in the family and didn't come into the bubble too late whether it's a fact that Lou Williams left the bubble and came back the Patrick Beverley. There were there were a lot of issues. But ultimately. It. Probably does follow on doc in a sense that you had the pieces you had the pieces. You shouldn't be watching if you're the clippers, you can't be watching the Los Angeles Lakers right now compete for

Shannon Sharpe reacts to Lakers GM 3 loss to Nuggets in Western Conference Finals

"III LOVES SIGHT THAT LOSS. From the Lakers and how about we break it down right now guys Lebron. What is third triple-double this postseason, but it wasn't enough against the nuggets. Last Night Denver led by twenty as late as the fourth quarter Lebron Ford in thirteen points in a last-ditch comeback at. Albury, finished with a team I twenty, eight, ten of which came in the fourth defend off Lebron the Lakers and hold on for the one fourteen to one. Oh, six Windsor Shannon. What is the biggest reason? The Lakers lost this one. They came out they came out and look like a team was to oh, and they just thought you know we don't come on here and do what we do and and not play hard and you could tell early on the nuggets were getting whatever they want. They drive laid up in the paint they you'll get to his dominant hand his right hand. Kiva phenomenal player. He's GonNa make shot skip that shot that he hit with the clock winding down on the right foot. I note most guys right handed shoot that shot Dirk Nowitzki made famous what he shot off his left leg I've never seen right hand guy shoot that shot up the up the wrong foot. I mean, 'cause we shoes tonight expected to go in everybody that's a bad shot clock winding up I expected to go in but I did not expect the Lakers to look this flat. We've haven't seen them even even against a Portland skip the first game even against the rockets the first game they didn't look this flat they I'm like broad do realize the western conference finals. you mentioned it a D. Two rebounds and they came in the last five minutes of the Game Hey deeply forty-three minutes. Avail one rebound white one rebuilt. If you tell me skill that the nuggets will out rebounded again by nineteen. If you tell me, they're going to turn the ball over the Lakers. I'm going to say the nuggets going to win the series, but I don't believe that I believe Lebron ad will play better I. Believe Lebron will be more aggressive because I thought the second the second in the third quarter. Eighty go it and it seemed like Lebron was designed to say you know what you gotta go hey, we're gonNA keep going. But skipped ahead, given up so much ground they had dug themselves. So much of a whole maybe if they don't allow get a eighteen twenty, maybe ten twelve now they can complete the comeback but I thought the Lakers played like a team that was looked. Like they didn't have they had a away game and if through this game away but what are the process what you've done if that you giving these guys confidence because now they think they can beat you they do they feel like Murray for sure thinks he can be yes and he's talking like He. SHOULD BE UP TWO GAMES TO ONE IS I've seen story before the thing is with this guy when he gets hot and. Those lash those last second shot because I saw him in game seven you remember the clock out of both have and he throwing up three's from twenty five from thirty feet and he switching. So he has confidence in their gaining companies but the problem that also has get, you can't have every guy that played for the nuggets with the exception of to a temp equal to or more free throws they Lebron James that tells. Me He's not getting he's not driving the ball. He's not aggressive enough or they're not calling it. So for me, that was the different. They just lacked intensity. They came out like a team that was too low and had the game to throw away I. Expect I know for certain and I'm going I, don't care I. don't care what the line he'll. I won't do on it right now you do I won't do right now.

Chicago Bulls officially hire Donovan as next head coach

"We had some big news that broke in the NBA on Tuesday afternoon after we went off air and that is one of the most desirable head coaching jobs in the League of the Chicago Bulls with their young talent. With a new front office scale, they found their head coach. It was an experienced veteran who won sixty percent of his games over the five years. He was the head coach of Oklahoma City, and that is billy Donovan scall- getting head coach of the bowls on Tuesday afternoon scale. What was your reaction when you heard the news that billy dee is going to be the headman for the bolts and I don't. Think about all that I have I'm not good with that type of stuff and I don't WanNa see here and B. M. B. S. The people I don't know what makes a good coach a certain situation I don't know what he did it Oklahoma City where when you had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and Katie left in it. It's just it's just a lot of variable. I know this year they were great day overachieved and he was great for. Them but I do know they also turn the keys over to cruise pause at went. But so I wish him the best I I don't I don't know what's which is even the benchmark look like for Success in Chicago I'm not even sure what I i. if I understand that I'm not even sure I understand their roster of if how good they can possibly be like a lot of guys under team. So I'd be lying if I told you all man. Shares he's going to do so good I don't I don't know any of those things. We'll see he did win sixty plus percent of his games out of the four hundred koshen. Okay. See he had an eighteen and twenty three record in the playoffs as team went to the Western Conference finals in year one when he had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook of what they did not win a series after that any inherits a very young but my opinion relatively talented young team in Chicago So kudos to billy dee in the front office Chicago for a after a long exhaustive process finally getting their guy scale. Here's some of the other candidates that were interviewed by according to Marc Spears also according to my sources in the front. Office as well. Are they talked to Stephen Silas Jamal. Moseley Dan Craig Kenny Atkinson Gironde Collins Yodok David Vander Pool West Junior Darvin Ham and Chris Fleming who is there assistance assistant so they had a pretty long exhaustive search I. Think the search pivoted when Billy Donovan became available. That was something that was maybe unforeseen, and now he's going to get a chance where they knew front office to lead the Bulls and try to get them back into the playoffs. Gal. On because Chicago has been the second worst team in the NBA Ed only the New York Knicks in terms of the record over the last three years.

"I don't think he necessarily is that now. Especially if they play Lebron James or Kawhi Leonard in the first round. I think he has the potential to be that someday but I agree with everything you guys said what you said scale. I don't think they're good enough defensively. I think another Guy's phenomenal coaching job in the Western Conference. That we haven't mentioned is carlisle because looking at the roster sort of you talked about the historic offensive numbers. I'm not really sure how they're doing it to be honest with you other than Luke who who's phenomenal but you look at the rest of the roster and say like all right you know if I'm on the other side playing or coaching and executive when Lucas off the court they don't really scare me so the fact that they're still rolling along and winning games without Luca is a testament to Rick Carlisle and the rest of that roster now all that being said scale mentioned the clutch numbers. They don't have a guy who strikes fear in my heart especially they don't have a playmaker if Luke is off the floor who I'd be scared of So no I I I'd be. I'd be more afraid from one of the top seeds in the west of playing a team. Like Oklahoma City scale mentioned their regard lineup. Those regards and gone are the Foreign Stephen Adams for the five to close a game. That's a scary lineup. With the shooting in ball handling and play making the have and Adams. To protect the rebound. I don't think Dallas has kind of ability or lineup like that. So I I yeah. I'd rather play play. Okay C. C. Mad Rather play Dallas in the first round and try to avoid. Okay see if I one of the top contending teams and I think going back to you has gone back to Kevin Durant said and I don't agree with everything Kevin Durant says but I do agree with this ball movement. It's great. I Love Ball Movement. I think it's the best way to play but there are points in time where you just need to go get you a bucket. Dallas doesn't have many guys that I would put as a guy. Just go out there and get you a bucket. So that's the reason why they're not a great great Fourth Quarter team and why? They're not scary playoff team but it is a good point that you bring up. I'm glad you did right. It's like Oh yes. They have Luca they have. This guy who is a you know potential top-five MVP and we haven't seen porzingus and Luca. Click at the same time. Like that would scare me. I'm not saying it will happen. But if that ever does happen. And Lucas Arts playing. I'm sorry porzingus is playing the way. He's been playing without Luca and playing with Luca. That is a scary proposition. I just don't think I have any competence that will at least at this year but if that does happen they could be team. But I still would if I'm like Denver or something and Denver cited the three. I think I'd be most afraid of facing the Oklahoma City Thunder. If they're the sixty but are let's move on here Scott. Why don't you give us a quick read here from hymns and then we'll talk about who we think is the most likely team to get the eight spot and we'll talk about which some of these teams at the bottom if they need to make some major changes come this off season with with resin. Gm Ryan mcdonagh said. I gotta give us a quick read here from hymns you've heard us talking about him and how they're helping look their best if you haven't yet it's time to see what they're all about. Sixty six percent of men start losing their hair by the age of thirty five..

"Miss get back get back late and get fouled so I have concerns about Houston and also do think the there's so much tension and friction guys in Houston given the move. They made for Westbrook but especially given the future of Mike. Tony and I'd also throw their general manager. Daryl Morey into the mix with the with the tweet about Hong Kong and all that she from what I'm hearing around the League. There's a lot of pressure and I just think scale I'd be interested. Your take on this but from my experience overtime in a playoff setting when you're at best equal matchup probably overmatched a little bit as far as the talent first round. I just think that press pressure exacerbates things and and I can see teams meltdown on that situation especially in unusually constructed team like the rockets are one of the most uniquely built teams. I can think of with no center so I don't know maybe maybe I'm too low on. Houston I probably am. I just see a first round flamed flame out and I can see something going pretty ugly in the first round and and the thing just kind of going off the rails quickly when they're matched up against again one of the two teams Denver or Utah so Denver is the one that I can't wrap my mind around because Yokich can't chase these guys all over the place and they're not Denver's team that taxed aback basket with reckless. Abandon men or anything like that so that in particular like Utah. The two well Organiz. I don't I don't think that that's I think they'll lose Utah but Denver is the one team that I would i. If I was Denver I would be afraid of the Houston Rockets because it is going to be one style of play versus another style of play in which one holdout it'll be the one that gets the most layups and the team gets the most layups and wide open. Threes might actually be the Houston Rockets in this situation. Even know the rockets are the team has no rim protection. It's a good point. You bring up scall- because I did think about that is like are are the rockets onto something. Are they the trendsetters? Aren't they a couple years ahead of their time? Our team's going to be doing. I think it was Switzer stressed the end last week. I asked you if more teams going to copy what the rockets are doing in the future and I think both of us agreed. It was probably no and I think if you look at like the Hamptons five right that lineup which you know. Obviously it was almost what started this. I guess you can go all the way back to. Maybe some of those Miami Heat teams as well but the Super Small lineups where you've basically got a bunch of small forwards and guards on there like that team had Igwe Dala Ozzy. Kevin Durant draymond green great defensive players as well. I think I don't think it's impossible for team to try this. I just don't know if if the personnel that the rockets have is the right one. Because I don't know if they're good enough defensively I don't know if they're switchable enough defensively like draymond can guard centers. So can Kevin Durant like. I just don't know if this Houston team is a yes. They're PR- as perks. Tweeted out this and said this many times. They are terrifying offensively but they're just as terrifying. You know if if you're a supporter of them or a fan of them defensively 'cause they're going to give up a ton of points. I just don't know if they're personnel fits the way that you know what it's going to take for them to make deeper on the planet. I'm with you. I think if I had to pick right now. Utah versus a Houston. I WOULD TAKE UTAH. One one thing you have to bring up when you're talking about the Golden State Warriors is there. No one talks about this. Oh it's go small and we're all going to be like the Golden State Warriors combination of ease League decision making elite elite elite decision making and elite elite shooting. If you're a team that dribbles the hell off the air out of the ball. The ball whatever you wanna say that negates being small it takes all the advantages of putting teams in rotation and it takes it all the way but moving the ball quickly and making shots makes it impossible if you're big in their small to keep up with them so you can't compare offensively. The same is not the same animal you could be big and you could go against isolation it's hard to be big and being rotation though on defense the swabbing. They're potentially the most interesting team in the entire league as we approach the final third of the season here post all-star break. Let's move on here guys Dallas now are actually let me do. Let's do okay see first hear because they're ahead in the standings just for now which is surprising. Sit in the sixth spot right now as we take this in the western conference and I don't think any of us I mean I'll start with you Ryan. I don't know if any of US th they're gonNA make any noise in the West but I would say this is Billy Donna. This is a question you had an. It's a great question is. Has anyone done a better job of coaching? This year. The Billy Donovan. Because it's been weird in the past. Obviously it seemed like Russell Westbrook was maybe a difficult guy. He was going to do what he wants points. And now we're starting to see what Billy Donovan is as. He's able to mold younger guys and Chris Pause. I'll go along with it. Is Billy Donovan? Doing the best coach out of anyone in the NBA. Right now run. I think he's up there. So Rudy I think for me if I had to vote for coach of the year I I know not. Everybody views it this way but I would vote for Mike Wooden holder just because he's done so well for the second year in a row and they're historically good team and I don't know how you could coach team prepared team any better than he has given walkies done But if I look to the western conference coach of the year two guys come to mind who might be second and third and the entire league one is billy Donovan and okay. See and the other is Taylor Jenkins with job. He's not in Memphis with a young. But Yeah I think billy look. Most of the people myself included at Oklahoma City as a non playoff team. This year I think most of US had. I'm closer to the fifteenth and the top half of the Western Conference. I think currently there right around that six seven range so Kudos to billy Donovan. It's not a deep team. But he's finding a way to make it work with regard front with Chris. Paul Schade guilty Alexander and Dennis Schroder. Those guys have played well and also have Chris. Paul guys has been the best closer in the league by far throughout the first two thirds of the season. He's leading the League in Clutch points. He's been unbelievable. Down the stretch and close game so billy should get a lot of credit though that that is not a particularly talented roster after the top. Four five guys. It's not a very deep team as we mentioned. There are solid playoff team in the western conference and Billy. Not a big reason for that. Yeah I saw them live last night and then they were. They're they're really good shake Yoga's Alexander is exceptional as as a player. Now maybe this has a lot to do with being around Chris. Paul but his poise on the basketball court. Great Length Windows. Shoot not to win to turn a corner when. He turns the corner. How is different finishes at eurostepped? He floats to dribble. He's that was a huge huge. We were talking about this a couple of maybe a couple of days ago. You Clippers could have got this deal done without Shea like they gave a five first round picks in to write to swap for Paul. George is there any way to clippers could have said Nah? We're not going to do it. And Billy and and there's no way that could have happened. There's no way it would have happened. I mean could it have for the rules? Yeah could have but I heard from. Yeah I have friends out of San both sides and the Oklahoma City Front office and in the Clippers Front Office. That said she was the key she had to be in the deal for o'casey to pull the trigger and do the deal. He's one of the best point young point guards in the league. I think he's going to be an all star some day. So that was the main part. I mean the picture. Nice Gallon Ariz a nice piece. Although he's an expiring contract but Shea was the key was the crux of it and the way Sam. Presi the president of the Oklahoma City thunder operated is LA CLIPPERS. I'm going to deliver you not one player but two players. I'm going to deliver you Paul George in because if you get Paul George. Quite Leonard is going to come but in order for me to do that. I need Jay Gould use Alexander deal again. That's what I've heard from the thunder front office and the La Clippers Front office and You know I understand why Chris devalued him. He's a guy loved in the the twenty eighteen draft and I think he's going to be one of the best point guards in the League for the next decade or so. Yes seemed like okay so you really had all the leverage there. Let's let's move on to Dallas. They're currently sitting in the seven spot. They're tied with Oklahoma City. Do they have scowls with you? Do they have enough to scare somebody? In the first round or are they kind of like a little bit of a walkover. Because I personally would say I think okay see scares me a little bit more even though I don't think that they are going to upset anybody in the first round. I think they're behind Dallas. But what's your take so this is what I do when I wonder if teams are GonNa be good in the playoffs if you just look at their fourth quarter numbers. Take take the first three out because I do believe. The playoffs are very similar to what the fourth quarter is. If you look at the fourth quarter numbers you know. Dallas is on historic rate offensively but in the fourth quarter there below average in the NBA. Fourth quarter offensive rating fourth quarter net rating fourth quarter defensive rating so to me when. I unfold that Dallas is not a really scary team in the playoffs. Because they're not great in the fourth quarter. Where as as Ryan just mentioned Oklahoma City you know real plus minus in Fourth Quarter? Which is a little bit skewed? Because like Yana sitting out the fourth quarters and all that stuff real plus minus in the fourth quarter shake. Yoga's Alexander One Chris Paul to Dennis Schroder three in the NBA so they are more scary team in the fourth quarter but I whatever it is about Dallas Dow still one player away from being your chip level and as as everything is now came back to Earth. Your greatest twenty year old ever walked. The face of the earth is now back to being a really good twenty year old. That's just not the greatest twenty year old ever well. The Dwight Powell thing obviously hurt them. And then I think you're right with some of the stats like for sure like they th- they are on pace to have one of the best offenses in the history of the NBA. But I think a little bit. That was fool's gold and I'm not sure that they were ever in that Ballpark Ryan. Can they scare somebody or are you with us that like I just think that there are at least a piece or or multiple years away from really doing that? I think the reason they could potentially put a scare into somebody but I don't think they will is. They have a guy and look good nonsense. You could be the best player on the floor in a playoff series regardless of who is matched up against..

"Who's a better defensive? Player mo heartless her or Morris from the way you evaluate basketball. I think that a little bit different scowl. I give a slight lean toward Morris. I think Morris has more physical. I think Marcus Morris is able to guard bigger guys. Marcus pretty well. We had them in Phoenix for a few years and he's improved a lot. Since then so I. I think as far as guarding a big scholar switched on a mismatch. Being able to stand somebody up in the post or not give ground. More heartless is thinner. Maybe a little more agile on the perimeters far sliding his feet. But I like Marcus Morris as defensive versatility more especially when teams get into the playoffs. They look for a mismatch. Maybe try to pile on the ball of the post if they got a smaller guy. I think Marcus Morris has better equipped to handle that situation than Marcus's then I'm GONNA GO I. I don't know if they'll get tripped up by another team. 'cause like Utah's scary team to play to play offs. I don't care who. You are but clippers versus Lakers. I'M GONNA go nine and six. I'm confident on the nine level. That the clippers will beat the Lakers. But it's it's so other teams it's Houston's of the world that I would be a little like Houston maybe Denver Utah. I'd be a little bit concerned with if I was under team just to get tripped up. Not necessarily the Lakers. But maybe the clippers so if that makes any sense that's kind of how I see it I haven't had about a five and a five guys and I think I'm splitting the ten between those two teams and I don't think anybody else is going to win. The West and I picked the Lakers before the season. I still feel confident. That might be less competent now but I think as I mean. I think it's dead. Even I think you could flip a coin I think you have. You played that seven game series probably ten times. You might get five different winners every single time. So I think it's dead even. I'm not sure I think the Marcus Morris addition is GonNa make a massive deal. I don't think it necessarily hurts but I do feel better. I as a guy picked the Lakers for the season. I feel a little bit better about the clippers. Now which is why. I'm I'm taking back my Lakers cop and it's just a bit but I I think I think it's pretty much dead. Even Scotto had one one thing. I WANNA ask him. Do you think that the Lakers are the number one seed and I feel like the significant? Drop off with the first round matchup whether whoever it is Portland San Antonio whoever sides into could be New Orleans. Do you think that that will matter? Going forward. Like if the Lakers could dust up on the first round opponent and get rest affect the outcome later on the Western Conference finals. I think it does matter scale. I think getting the number one eight or in the Lakers case hanging onto the number one seed is important because I look at the western conference I think those top seven teams are all pretty good the four or five teams we've discussed INCLUDING THE TO LA put Utah Houston Denver in that mix and then teams we have discussed a Dallas and Oklahoma City or teams that I I think the La Teams in particular would beat in. First Round playoff series. But I wouldn't be excited about playing them in the playoffs and then I look at eight seed whether it's memphis or a depleted Portland team. Who'd have to spend a lot of energy to get into the playoffs? I think that's where the advantages I. I could see a team like the Lakers or clippers sweeping that series or winning four one and then getting some rest as say whoever the number two seed is has to battle it out with seven seated Oklahoma City Thunder or seventy Dallas Mavericks. So I think it is important scale. I think especially when you have one player again. Lebron James Who's older who has to do so much as you know. Scalia I'll be fascinated to see that you bring up a great point because in the Eastern Conference Lebron's record is ridiculous in the first place not only in terms of winning but in terms of how quickly he's won. How many of those series you swept. That's harder to do. Obviously in the western conference in. If I'm a Lakers coach or executive I worry more about that. Given how many games in minutes Lebron is played at thirty five years old? I'm going to get to some of the teams that are gonNA be buying to knock the to L. A. teams off the pedestal of potentially being in the Western Conference on I'll get to the Denver's the Utah's and some of the other guys in a second. Maybe a quick read here from Ziprecruiter. We know hiring is a challenge..

"We've got a special show here today. Plan we're going to do a Western Conference Post. All-star look ahead. So we're GONNA look ahead to the Post all-star deal in the western conference what we expect in sort of the final third of the season as we approach the playoffs and then how that impacts the playoffs. So we're going to go. We've got questions for just about all the playoff teams. We've got bigger picture questions for some of the teams that are outside the playoffs. What they do going forward as we sort of you know wind down here the and the what is basically the end of the season we make a playoff push for most of these teams and as always. I'm joined by the White Mama. Brian Scholar Bruni and joining us today as well as former sons jam at a guy with intimate knowledge of the Western Conference. And that is our Buddy Ryan who joins us? What's up. Brian Scale? Cerruti glad to join us so for forty five minutes or so. We're GONNA go over a bunch of questions here. We got a bunch of stuff plan and I think the easiest way guys do this. Let's go right by the standing. Let's go to the top from the top to the bottom and McDonough. You have a bunch of really good questions that that are basically applied to all the contenders and everyone. That's looking to go one through eight in the eastern and the Western Conference. So let's start here with the Lakers team. Everybody's talking about the team that did not make a move at the trade deadline. The team that did not end up getting Darren Collison. We'll see what happens going forward The question you had there is can they hang onto the one seat now. They lead as we're taping this now. They lead the nuggets and the clippers by three games. But as you pointed out mcdonagh they're just six and five in their last eleven after their thirty three and seven star. We talked about this a little bit earlier in the week with Karen Butler as to whether or not this has anything to do with sort of the Kobe tragedy and how that has affected their team obviously very uniquely more than any other team or is it some sort of thing where maybe they morning dominant as we thought they were in the beginning of the season. We're done I'll start with you. Do you believe they hang onto the one-seat no I don't I don't I think a lot has gone right for the Lakers? Through the first half of the season in particular when they were thirty three and seven starting with Lebron James. Anthony Davis being almost completely healthy and not missing any time. I don't think they have the talent or the depth to withstand injuries or even off. They WANNA give those guys a break down the stretch when I look at the Clippers and Denver Nuggets right behind them. I think those teams are better equipped to overcome injuries Denver has a few key guys out right now mason plumlee. We'll Barton her out. Michael Porter Jr. not playing and they're still winning. So I think the Lakers are one. Lebron James or Anthony Davis injury away from struggling especially Lebron guys when you when you look at their numbers would Lebron off the court even when it is on the floor. They're not very good and I think it's been a tough week for the Lakers. Because of you know if they're only about five hundred over the last few weeks and they did not make a big move. They didn't make any moves on trade deadline. And now the biomarker is not looking like like. We thought it was going to look with guys like Darren. Collison on Undergrad. Allah potentially available for the Lakers to add. You think this is just like the Lebron James Correction. Like he came out he was arrested. He didn't have to play off. Run motivated you know the the prove that they're going to stab shoe. They are easy schedule so they rode that wave of of momentum early and this is just like all right this is probably where they're at right now is probably what we thought they would be little. It's the Kobe. Bryant thing is like no one could have predicted data all but just sort of like them settling into the regular season doesn't matter it's all about the postseason which a lot of us probably thought. That's what the Lakers are. GonNa be like. Yeah I think scale when you look at their schedule you brought up. A great point about the Lakers schedule when I looked at all eighty two games the first quarter the first twenty or so games were definitely the easiest stretch of schedule and the Lakers did very well over that. Stretch into the second quarter. They continue to do pretty well. But now that we're past the halfway mark of the season. The schedules remaining schedule still looks pretty difficult. And as I mentioned so much is on those two guys. Lebron James Anthony Davis in fact so much on the one Guy Lebron in particular that when he's off the court guys they don't look as good so if he gets injured if he gets in foul trouble or frank. Vogel in the Lakers Front Office. Decide look disguise thirty five years old. He's in a seventeen season. We DON'T WANNA burn them out in the regular season and I think it's going to be harder for the Lakers to win down the stretch than it is. Teams like the Clippers and the nuggets. I think the Lakers still probably will end up with the number one seed but I think the fact that even though they have a game lead and we're only we're only a third of the season left. I still don't think it's a guarantee that we can pencil them in in that number one slot. They both both teams. Lakers and the clippers have a bottom third strength of schedule so they actually have an easier. Run coming up here but the Denver and the Denver Nuggets speaking of are in the top five. Actually the number number four strength of schedule left. They have two games. Both against the Lakers and the clippers though it seems like if Denver gets up for that they they can do it. They go out and beat some of those teams. I don't think I have faith in them to overtake them. And I don't know how seriously the clippers are gonNA take the regularly. I don't know I don't know how seriously gonNA take so. I would definitely lean towards the Lakers holding onto it even though I have some concerns potentially about them going forward and whether or not they were as great as they showed us in the first couple of months of the season guys. Let's move onto the clippers year and I'll have another question for both teams after that but the question that you had. I'll oppose us to use cal. I does homecourt matter for the clippers at all. They're most likely to play the Lakers in the same building in the Western Conference finals. Do you think. Do you think the clippers care at all about getting the number one seed or or having home court against the Lakers. No but I don't know if you WANNA play the Lakers like in the second round I try to the whole matchup thing. If let's say the Lakers do are the two seat in and the clippers are the three seat so I would assume now. I'm I don't know how doc looks at district. Their team looks at this but I would assume that they would try to try to avoid the Lakers until the western conference finals. But I don't think homecourt matters for the Lakers or the clippers in this situation. I don't think it's there's no travel. There's no hotel everyone staying in their own place and all that stuff so if I was for them. It's it's about being healthy. And I think the Lakers fall into this category. As well the real question would be with with Denver like Denver would even. I'm not I wouldn't. I'm not afraid of Denver in the playoffs if Denver has home court. I wonder if that kind of nudges. Their advantage up just a notch. Especially like against the clippers Yeah I what scale said one thing to keep in mind scallon. I know this very well being around dockers all those years. He doesn't care about homecourt advantage. I it was never a discussion. We stay home. Court versus rests homecourt versus health. He take rest and health every day of the week and feel like if his teams rested and healthy. I think especially this team with with Kawhi Leonard. Paul George now adding Marcus Morris when when is played as you guys know? They've been very good especially when Paul Georgia's played alongside them so I don't think doc will be pushing for it but yesterday as I sent you the question last night. It's just such a unique circumstance. Were going on the road in the playoffs. Usually means you have to travel to a difficult place to win like say Denver Utah. That's not the case here. You're in the same building. I believe they have set locker rooms. I don't think they have to do anything different as far as I think the Lakers clippers locker room. So it's like you're playing a home game. The floor and the banners are a little bit different. The crowds slightly different. But I don't think it's a significant advantage either one of the LA teams to have home court advantage When they play each other which you know looks like it may be in the conference finals. I WanNa do this comparing both these teams because part of this was you know. Obviously THE CLIPPERS. Atlanta's Marcus Morris. And as we talked about Darren. Collison is not going to the Lakers. So does that swing sort of tied. And what you thought was going. Woohoo L. A. Team had the more dominant or have the more likely chance to breach the western conference finals or the finals from the West. If I had if I asked you this I'll start with you. Ryan one to ten scale of one to ten. How competent are you in both the Lakers? Or the clippers that they reached the finals. GimMe Gimme one to ten. Like what you would say. Your confidence isn't Lakers. And the clippers to reach the finals. I think in the western conference generally speaking. It's hard to say ten or number close to at the conference is just too good. There's too much talent in depth and in the matchups especially in the second round are going to be really really good so i. I'd say I have the clippers ahead of the Lakers. I picked the clippers to beat the Milwaukee Bucks in the preseason. I'm going to stick with that prediction. Although maybe the most surprising thing to me is just how dominant Milwaukee has been coming off a great year last year. They look even better. So I'd say the Clippers. I give him an eight to go to the Western Conference finals. I know that may be high. But I'm really confident in their talent in-depth throughout the roster. I'm confident doc. Rivers in his playoff experience. And with the addition of Marcus Morris. I think when Leonard Paul George Start and then they bring Lou Williams mantras Harold off the bench. They don't have a lot of holes and a lot of flaws so I give them an eight Lakers. I'M GONNA give us seven. I'm less confident in the Lakers. I just think so much Lebron.

"What did marquesses are say that they saw when they watch the game back houston getting up in everybody forcing the offense to be stale for golden state forcing off the offense to be run from further out from golden state that's an adjustment these little adjustments we've been begging to see in the western conference final or significant we screamed for we begged for mike dan tony to make adjustments after the first game right that's what we want all can't play that much i so ball everybody was i've never i mean i still if i got a nickel for every time i heard the phrase eyeso ball for the course of that week i never have to work again we talked about the adjustments turns out they didn't really need to adjust they just needed to better execute because really change their strategy but there is a coach for golden state that i don't know if we sit there we let him fly under the radar does he deservedly fly under the radar we not question do you not look at steve kerr's don't dramatic things for golden state he's been spectacular has gotten the most out of a bunch of vigo's he's found all sorts of ways to integrate these guys he's managed to run the offense keep everybody happy and people will take less money to playing golden state so i'm not here to say steve kerr is not doing a good job but you have to look at what happened at the end of the last game and to me i'm gonna come back to an implosion by golden state i mean if there was a parlay in vegas that you can play that says okay golden state's going to miss six wide open shots at the end trevor rees is going to make the big game winner my god what would that thing pay out.

"Player movement in the nba ruled the summer of conversation and i've been saying all year that's not good enough if we want to have another summer of conversation and believe me i would love to be talking about player movement and whatever happens with lebron whatever happens with coli and where do these guys go what's paul george gonna do the lakers get any better all of these great topics someone talking about all summer in order to do that one thing had to happen and it is time for me to admit it took too long for me to admit it hasn't happened we got a western conference final worth watching because in fairness look the last game i said it wasn't great but it was close but does history remember history doesn't remember the eye test history remember statistics because the more you start talking about well i watch this guy play i watched the end of that game the more you become get off my lawn sports guy can't rely on that how often is the conversation about somebody like joe montana when we went forward oh and super bowls but it's rarely about what people actually saw during those games how often is the conversation about dan marino well you know he was in one never won the super bowl versus the guys that watched him play see the eye test fades the memory fades but statistics the reference books the statin impo weenies that stuff never changes because it's written down and paper so now what we have is a western conference final no matter what happens tonight that is guaranteed to go at least six games that's what i asked for holy hell the basketball god's delivered his greatness they gave us a close game whether it was a good game or not they gave us a close game which on paper is going to make everybody say well look dot gay mosel close three point guy.

"The actually we've talked about a bevy of guys and sometimes i believe we've taken the greatness of c p three for granted all you need to know is look at the clippers with them and look at the clippers without him and that's definitely comes to mind the one thing i don't think however even c p three would try to alleviate or get rid of his the collapse against the houston rockets in the western conference semifinals few years ago about three years ago or so when they had a nineteen point lead in the third quarter and basically got out scored forty nine to nine by houston who was being led by corey brewer and the white house because james harden was on the bench cpa three was healthy blake griffin was healthy de'andre jordan was healthy and the clippers just absolutely positively collapsed that is something that getting to the conference finals for the first time in his career does not even a race he's too great to not have been to that point or ready he has lost a few playoff series in you know in his career but for me the one defining motorway when i when i loved cpa three was when he was in new orleans and he was playing for byron scott max and we all not the the friction existed between byron scott and jason kidd and jason kidd was a point golf of the opposition to believe it was dallas and cpa three was going up against him in the wall leans and cpi three just destroy him and was screaming into the cameras e can't guard me and i had never seen sepia three like that i had never seen anybody like that against jason kidd so i remember that it shows me the kind of hot the pit bull mentality that he has we know what his greatness entails but in the end this is a guy that's going to go down as one of the greatest small gods and one of the greatest point guards in the history of basketball so just getting to the conference.
