"zach lowe" Discussed on Road Trippin': Richard vs. Channing

"You face. You ain't got nothing. I think you're one hundred percent right and i think the lakers if they're healthy everyone is sort of defaulting to the well if they're healthy their their favorites and i'm like i you're probably right because they let me take you on the flip side of that is the chemistry a concern from the outside as much as it is when you hear the players talk about it consistently all the time you're talking about. How the chemistry. So great on the outside off court but they've got stuff to get right in. Dennis had that quote when lebron returns. We're going to sit down and have a conversation because we've got work to years. The conversation give give the ball. The libron ryan go to the corner mouth slugger. Should they win a chip. I didn't say that. But i wouldn't say there have been my thing. Here's my question. The biggest thing about drummer this. He's so effing talented as he moves like a cat to be to eighty he can pass. He's solid on the block solid in a sense of ican score over a mismatch of semi-officially. He's the worst finisher. Historically it's disgusting right it's disgusting so if you can just finish the shots right when you get a rebound if somebody slaps the ball. Just finish the lakers away to win and view it counter that the players in which he's now surrounded by and this is not an excuse or a knock for him over the last may allow him to prove to be different in that invalid him finishing has nothing to do with. Who's around him. It's your seven fourteen year constantly. Triple team really quickly really quickly. But look lebron's going to be passed into him. Instead of know reggie jackson and brandon jennings acid. Let's also let's also establish this because we're gonna go back to. I want to go back to the dennis schroder. When when i wasn't on the team so i was on the team at six in fifteen sixteen sixteen seventeen and then i laugh but then i came back and member. That's when they jordan clarkson and they add jeff green and they had all of those guys on the cavs team and they were struggling a little bit remember. They went to seven in that first round. And i look i kind of pulled. Jeff agree and i'm like listen. This is the difference between playing with bron in the regular season in the postseason in the regular season. He might roll you the ball and let you go to work. Whatever bronze going to go to work when he throws you that ball. That is your moment. That is your chance. Do something because they ball gets back into his hands. Then it's you're done right. There is no there is no. You're done so it. Braun dries kicked it to shrewder intruder shooter. Kinda looks around dribbles shooter. When you kick it you go bronco. Let's shoot like that. That's kind of like the way he plays. But you're you're opportunities and your the you're a lotta say leash but you're leeway to pro play. He just want you aggressive at all times..

"But michael never did it unless i'm wrong. In fact zac brown back to back rows back to back so and so and so the will russell bird by year three. So by the time they win their third. Mvp in either year one or two or both. Their teams have won the championship. So jaanus would be the first three peat. Mvp to win all three before winning title. And i think a lot of voters like like you said rj. He's had an amazing year. Statistically is not quite the same but incredible but people are just not going to vote for him because he hasn't won yet is that fair. is that not fair. it's strange right. Can i ask this question. Why can't the mvp be about the playoffs as well. Because if you really wanna hold that player to a standard of winning to your point of not winning a title just yet. We don't even take those into account deal. Why act night. The in the playoffs right. Rondo may not play and all of a sudden win the clippers a whole series. Is he gonna be like serve guys regular season like why. Leonard doesn't give a shit about the regular season most of the time he's out there just winning game but like what can you make that your mvp but co letter been like may have the greatest playoff run. You know what i'm saying does he. Does he get considered as nba finals. Mvp as is. If i think because the nba would say would be anti-climactic kinda like how super bowl mvp is anti. It's going to be the quarterback of the team that wins every single year so like the. Mvp would just be the best player on the team that wins the championship and the nba likes the fact that we have all these podcasts. Discussing the mvp and everyone has criteria. That's a little bit different and people get mad at each other and they yell at each other on tv and it's a long way in horse you and went horse getting after that what. You're yellow windhorst. That was not on the windhorst jackets. Podcasts i would. I would call jack. S actually just in general. But i did not. I was not on that podcast. I love you brian. I'm just kidding. Wait a minute. There's some got talk about obeef nobis. Well okay so okay. Then let's go. So we talked about james harden and how people and again understand. I love it when we have these conversations because we don't have votes we're purely opinion right. Were purely opinion and we take it end.

Expectation-Defying Knicks Are a Gift to New York Fans

"Zach lowe. Thank you for joining me man on important. Nba always a pleasure. Assia zach lowe covers the nba for espn and is the host of the low post podcast. So i brought you here originally to talk about the mvp race. Your an mvp voter. You take this job extraordinarily seriously as you should and i want to get to all of that but we now have to start because i live in new york city. I am friends with so many knicks fans zach. I'm reading a text on my phone from friend. Kevin brennan who is a guy full disclosure. Who had a wedding where people were chanting knicks tape. The betrothed did not walk out somehow but today and days like today are going to test stats at this. You need to change whatever you planned for tomorrow and immediately podcast on the hottest team in the nba. So here we are man. It is time to knicks tape. Are you ready. i. I've watched most of the recent games i'm ready. Let's do it. So i was skeptic. I remain skeptic. I've been exiled from the knicks online community on twitter. They're very mad at me. Because i'm sarcastic cynical and also obviously left to be a priest of the process. I'm a sixers guy now and they are all just laughing and taunting me. So when you watch the new york knicks the basketball team of the city in which i reside greatest in the world greatest city in the world with maybe the most unhinged fan base in professional basketball right doubt. What do you see what you watch their team. First of all day deserved to be unhinged. I've seen some rented images tweeted this morning. That are just delightfully over the top. About the knicks game winning streak and the guard mcgann becoming the knicks. Eight wins in a row. This season of the season of promise continues paris top. dominos next. Find a way to win again

Sportswriter Zach Lowe on NBA Mid-Season Leaders

"Where. We are at the midway point of the nba season. And that means. I have questions for you about the utah jazz. I say the utah jazz to you. Right now what comes to mind a whole lot of threes there making these every time you know checkup jazz box score at my brain just glances over twenty two thousand from three leg. It's just nothing there number two in defense in number three or something in offense. They do profile as championship contender. Like they're the best team in the league by record right now. Are they the best team in the league to you. While the comparison that that's become sort of commonplaces they're they're the new sixty win hawks. The team that was built to win a lot of games regular season pretty ball movement side to side movement. You don't really have the star power to compete against lebron james when it comes down to it in the playoffs but i don't think they're just sort of blake a regular season flute so the way the jazz are playing right now. It reminds me not just of the hawks as you said but also a kind of mutant version of the houston rockets simply because of the sheer volume of threes. Does that comparison sounded all right and also does that comparison than invite the questions about what happens in the postseason. If shooting a bunch of threes doesn't go as well as it did in the regular season. That comparison does not ring true to me honestly just stylistically. They're so different. The volume of threes is similar. Like they are taking a houston. Daryl morey level volume of threes. But they play so differently. The other comparison is brad stevens. I think the first one to give voice to this is to two thousand fourteen spurs which is kind of like. That's that's i don't want to say that out loud well to an mba hipster fan to an emmy afficionados. Let's put it that way kinda sewer. What does that specific spurs team. What does that evoke in your memory. It almost has this sort of religion. Level reverend yes. Everybody loved watching that team. Anybody who was at games three to five of the finals that year when by the beginning of game four we were all looking at each other. Like all my god. They're just going to destroy the heat and to compare any team to where that team reached. It just feels like talking to a pitcher in the seventh inning of a no hitter. Something like you just don't want to say out loud but that is a comparison. People are making looked at jazz. Their undoing in the playoffs in in previous seasons was day would very much like the hawks. Actually day would get a lot of open threes and not make them and you could look at that and say well. We did everything right. We just didn't make shots. Which is what. Every hawks team including that one said after the playoffs. And so yeah. The three point volume is similar to the rockets. And that's a little scary. The team that this discussion has occurred in the context of is the lakers. As you said as it must be the defending champions and so when you look at the lakers right now. I want to get to lebron specifically in a second but just them without anthony davis and how much they've struggled most recently losing to these jazz and blow out. What is that revealing to you or confirming to you about what this team needs to actually content. I think like any team. They need their best players to be healthy. I i'm pretty low on the lakers panic meter because it's not just anthony. Davis who you know was first team all nba hill assures. Anthony davis is not like some borderline all the best players in the league. Dennis schreuder is maybe their third best player. I think kyle kuzma is kind of the claim that mantle disturbing might be their third most important player. Because he's the only other guy. With the exception of some frisky alex russo games entail. Norton tucker will get you some. You know some stuff done now and then but he's learned other on ball creator the other the other guys threat to score or pass to somebody else. Yeah you take them away and it's like oh my god. Lebron has to do everything and and you know he's probably getting a little tired and even though he'll never say it the only thing that will make my panic meter go above like three point. Five on a one to ten is if we get news. At davis's injury is lingering or more serious that we thought it was then if they're healthy in the playoffs yeah. Competition in the west is is probably better this year. Particularly if denver finds whatever gear they had going in the bubble. There's going to be a lot of really good teams in the west. You could get the one seed in the west and play the warriors. You could get to play the mad. I mean it's it's just every round is hard there. But yeah i i can't i can't get too worked up about it right now. Yeah the western conference meet

"Plus what to expect on the court? That's ESPN daily listeners subscribe wherever you get your podcast for all the latest headlines and information. Tune the sportscenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day so mls in the NBA, are right near each other Mike Ryan was just telling me and again. The proof that money has access mls players if they want an MRI machine, they need to go to the local hospital. The NBA's not sharing their MRI machine, so they have to leave the bubble. And then they have to quarantine for three days because the NBA doesn't want anyone using their MRI machine. Like Mike starting to come around that Sir. Zach Lowe is with us now. Low Post podcast. If you want your playoff, basketball covered well we do a pretty good time a pretty good job around here covering basketball with an authority with a series of authorities during this particular time and Zach Lowe is at the top of the list, so let. Why don't you throw your? Theory Zach Lowe? First your your cockamamie theory, go ahead and and just float this theory of yours. That would be better. Just make it short plays the one where I'm keeping an eye on the bubble. One pick one and make it short talk quickly. Zach I am keeping an eye on his NBA bubble on his NBA playoff. Because to me, I'm not certain yet. If this is going to feel like winning an NBA championship, because one second beverly's there the next second he's gone. There's no going on the road with a big game six. You know with thirty thousand screaming fans, and therefore I'm GonNa keep a very close eye on the legitimacy. She sank. Is this you making it. A Quick Junior Zach feels the same way is a historian of the game. Maybe the best we have. Are you viewing this as a traditional I still am hopeful. I've said from the beginning that all the asterix talk and there's been a lot of it and I get why for all the reasons you just said and yeah, all these people leaving and coming back is going to create some timing issues but I also feel like you know we may get past the first round into the second round, and like the public interest may be so so immense, because no one has anything else to watch that we may look at this in the end is like it's kind of a badge of honor to go neutral site. No fans living in a bubble. Around you and come out after a four-month layoff and win the championship. It's GonNa. Be Weird. It's going to be different and yeah, if there's an outbreak if people are leaving and quarantining, the whole thing is screwy. Yeah, there's going to be an ashtray accessible, but if they can keep it kind of the way, it's running now. I think there's a decent chance we. We come out, and this becomes a championship to be proud of different, but to be proud of but fair to say it's something you're keeping an eye on right Oh. A follow up well. It's my job, my job to keep an eye on it and you do a great job of it. Are you in the bubble? Are you going to be in the bubble? I am as of now not in the bubble I. AM at home with my family and I will look into maybe going to the bubble later, but I am not in the Oh. You're keeping an eye on the bubble then. Stu Gods also says it's a bad look at the NBA is getting all this access to testing while people all over Florida die without access the test. I mean I I. Don't disagree I, mean I think I think honestly, if right now. The NBA just had euro positive tests in this round to testing right if they could keep that under control I think there's single biggest obstacle to seeing this way through completion is if that crisis that you just mentioned? Get so bad that just from a PR, an ethical stance it becomes untenable for the NBA to keep going, but again that's if they can keep this bubble intact, and obviously someone could still leave and come back with the virus or guests are going to come in after the first round, so that's up for debate to. Where's that line? Where are you putting the line where it would get so bad in America in Florida such a bad look that the NBA after pouring all of this money into this as an never mind. I honestly I don't know I. Don't know where the exact line is I. Keep Reading. People are waiting. What are people waiting in Florida now six seven days is what is the latest? I've read sometimes a little bit longer. Sometimes a little bit shorter. I honestly think we it's it's going to it. Will probably public pressure for medical officials saying okay, let's look deeper at how the NBA getting these tests. Are they taking them from people right now? There's not agreement USA Today Disorder Great Story About this. There's no agreement among epidemiologists and other experts that this is really an issue. Issue yet because of how the NBA getting its pest that they're that they're not taking them. Necessarily from the general public others are saying well, there are still limited supplies and materials, and all that so I. I think it would take a little bit more public consensus from medical experts. What do you make Zach, Lowe, again the low post podcast you want to check it out to get to all your basketball. Information of James Harden saying those who downplay his game quote maybe when I'm retired. Maybe when I'm done. Maybe when I'm gone, you all will understand he feels. Criminally underappreciated because none of us like to watch that style of basketball. I get where he's coming from in that I don't I don't think it's insane. I'm not necessarily saying I agree with it but I don't think it's insane to make the argument that he's the greatest offensive player ever his step back. Three is an absolutely revolutionary shot that completely changed the entire NBA and completely changed the rockets that said. You know you guys told me what is James Harden and signature playoff molding. Signature a playoff positive moment right now. It's probably twenty twelve against the spurs when he was still in Oklahoma City. For whatever reason he's had a couple of bad moments with Houston and like the way, the series have gone the way. The Games that a lot of rockets games in the playoffs had been blowout either way like he just.

"Catching up, which then results in cool podcast sometimes as you did last summer I'm so I'm curious to the extent that you can get into this without. A GIG creating any family strife at the moment whereas Croatia, and all this and the Zach Lowe Summer Book Reading Series A. We're not going this summer. I mean obviously that's out the door The finals of the playoffs are going to be going on, so we're we're. There will be no Croatia trip in that. That's life I mean. That's a very small cost of the larger issue. yet. The December first thing was interesting. The unavoidable issue with this frigate vacations all that stuff like whatever that's. That's immaterial to everyone else. At the issue run into that calendar is if these guys WANNA play in the international competitions it that all take place in the off season. If they WANNA play in the Olympics, if they wanNA play in the feeble World Cup, it just becomes a juggling act of of trying to make that all possible, and in some cases it's just not possible and I think. I. Know the League next if the Olympics happened next next summer in Tokyo, the the League. Want to come close to that. The League wants all their players who wanna play in the Olympics, Google, play, and they sure as hell. Don't want to have like the NBA finals competing with the Olympics. So. That's just sort of one of those conflicts adult. We'll see. There are definitely people who prefer that calendar and Christmas to August, or whatever, and then there are people who say you know what you gain in ratings by not playing during the heart of football season. And, then playing in August, when nothing is going on is could potentially not as big as people think. Because the world is still going to take vacation in August and maybe it's just not worth up ending the whole calendar for that, but we'll see who knows. Years down the line. Just trying to get.

"Zach Lowe's senior writer for ESPN in host of the low post podcast. Zach. We're GONNA have basketball We think we're going to basketball. We'll see on July whatever July thirty first, or whatever, but yet knock on wood back on everything. Knock on heads. We stay healthy enough to have basketball. That's true I should never say anything definitively these days, but we are closer to having basketball because the NBA Board of Governors met on Thursday in voted twenty nine to one on a plan for the League to return. Return to play in Orlando at Disneyworld, twenty two teams, eight regular season Games in possible plan term, involving the eighth and ninth seeds We're GONNA have a lot of time to break down the logistics of all this how it's going to work from a public health perspective, weather not can work, but I wanted to bring you on today to talk about the basketball ramifications of this decision. Why do you think they went this particular route? Well. I think as you might expect. They were trying to balance money midst about basketball and love the game all at, but I think that it's mostly about. How can we maximize? That's why they didn't just take the sixteen playoff teams. They've tried to threadneedle of. Volume of games. Fairness to the teams that were in the eighth spot when when the seasons stopped in some potential excitement for play in teams, particularly the teams that were chasing Memphis in the western, mathematically had a decent shot, a much better shot than usual with seventeen eighteen games left to catch them. I want to talk about New Orleans and Portland particular, but I I wanted to ask why not think they went with six additional teams? Instead of four was America just clamoring for some wizards basketball, so watching the wizards. It's sort of like playing roulette. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose sometimes you leave the building weeping uncontrollably. The one thing wizards are not. This season is boring. Both those teams really wanted to play I think part of it was probably well. If we're going to have a plan in the West, it's GonNa Look Kinda dumb. If we don't have a plan in the East Lake of we just take the east team so I guess we gotta take someone. WHO's the least crappy east team left? Okay Washington. You get in well, then we have to balance it. So who's the next lease? Crappy West, okay, Phoenix urine I, and then suddenly twenty two. My opinion and I said this from the beginning, it should have been twenty. There's a hard quality gap after twenty I see no reason why these teams had essentially zero percent chance to make the playoffs are going through all this rigmarole adding seventy or eighty bodies. Me The reason why it doesn't really make sense to me is if you had told me okay, the western conference is going to have a plan tournament with three four five teams, and it's GonNa last a week or ten days and we don't want the Eastern Conference. Eight playoff team sands Washington just sitting there waiting I could buy that, but displaying tournament is not a tournament. It's one or two games. I just don't. It doesn't make any sense to me why those teams? They're not to pick on them. I just thought so get it. The PELICANS obviously were playing much higher level Oncein Williamson came back, and actually had a better point differential than Memphis for the season stopped Then you've got the blazers who are nearing full health right, which was due back after an injury marsh before all this happened. and. In hair and Nerkez the deck and Oh, I think he's hurt. His leg. Oh, his leg is right. Narco hits the deck. Which of those teams do you think is better situated to make it in Portland was also slated to have a decent easy scheduling. Everyone focused on New Orleans easy schedule because it was the easiest but Portland in San. Antonio were slated ABC. Schedules. I think you would have to go with New Orleans. Only because a they were playing really well already in. Be Like it's it's. It's exciting that use of Norwich and Zach. Collins are back in their. If their backup for these long layoffs, but they're also back after long layoffs in Nurkic in particular is coming off one of those traumatic leg injuries that it usually takes people a while to get maybe a year. Even a season at took Paul George Longtime for instance to get back to what they were before. So I think you'd have to go with new. Orleans but I would not underestimate portland.

"Espn radio all bet. It's been a hell of a run for Coca Cola. Just a nonstop devouring run across all of America all the world all of commerce. Just just absolutely unstoppable. Are they're going to be any among those fifteen? Do you think Making a billion dollars that we're not that familiar with that's not possible right. Heard of all fifteen of those. That's a great question. I have a feeling of the fifteen. There's probably one or two we haven't heard of that. Would that would be my guess all right well. Speaking of being involved with things you have not heard of. I imagine that boot Shabby did not know a lot about Korean baseball before Korean. Baseball was all of a sudden playing and being broadcast by. Espn a forgive my ignorance on this buddy but have you done a game yet. Are you going to do a game later this week before? Answer that question. I I need to ask a question and because I know both of you so well and for so long. I'm I'm an address. This STU guys are you guys at this point now where you ever consider that Dan when he says lines that if they come out of stugatz mouth if would have been a fifteen minute segment stu just and I'll tell you what it's been a pretty good run for Coca Cola talking. It's been a good run cola. Yeah since you address me. He would not have answered that question. What it tore me apart for about fifteen minutes I would have felt over forty eight hours. Have you ever let me ask you a question? Have you ever come on here and answered a question like are? Do you always a question. John Oh I have not done game yet Dan. I am starting at five thirty in the morning. Friday so you. Dvr'S TVOS if you will so five thirty in the morning is when you're starting with a production meaning because of the time difference is that no because of the time difference. That's what time is on live so it's actually five twenty five. Am is when we will. will come on the air so In terms of their ample of I wish I had. I wish I could grow a good beard because outside was only sodano the other day I was saying it would be so great it gives. We're on camera some. It'd be so great if like I came on with like a whole beer to start broadcast and then they put me on the third and I just had a mustache and then when they put me on on the fifth that was clean. Shaven says that would be amazing. But I don't have this type of divide lebatardshow beard. It would be magnificent but I don't have the type of beer that I think that. Even if you gave me the month head start for the. I don't think anybody would notice if you went from beard. Domestically Jason have. You had a degree of difficulty like this one before on anything you've ever broadcast. Yeah for sure did the two thousand six WBZ From like a broom closet in Bristol. I get the Far East. That did China Chinese Taipei Korea and Japan and then we were friends then. Thanks for remembering hard. How hard is that? It's really hard it's hard. It's this Combo. If I mean hurt looked we'll have A. We'll have fun with it. But the the the Combo of words challenging is this would legitimately be hard to actually call the gain if it was the phillies in the mess. And you knew everybody just because watching it on TV. They're just things you can't tell right away so you can't you know. Come out of your shoes on a fly ball. You're going to get it wrong a lot of the time and you can't tell fair foul and sometimes you can't even tell directionally what exactly is happening so that makes it challenging and then when it's just on your monitor and the names and people don't come to you you know just kind of automatically in hard man. I would still say that. Probably one of the hardest things I've ever done was I did South Korea Japan on the radio in the WBC finals in two thousand and nine and that a certain point. I called Shelves Korea South Carolina in the middle of the broadcast booth shabby with us here on. Espn radio BOOP Matt. Williams is the highest paid manager in the K B. O team off to a very slow start. I'm wondering that Williams Tutsi. Oh into hot gotTA BE GOTTA BE HOT Yeah I I don't think there's any question they're going to be feeling the heat. And by the way Jay. So former New York medicines pitching coach and other coaches. He stopped joy. Oh Wow a name. From the past right. There he dies. What are you worried about? Is there anything? Is there anything in particular that concerns you in terms of being able to do the kind of broadcast you're able to usually do? I look I think the thing. That's hard is this. I'm trying to in all serious. It's a I WANNA have fun with it so like you know we. I WANNA honor the names like I don't WanNa hack them names up. I really don't but I also know that we're trying to introduce this. The people so i WanNa have some fun with it so you know we definitely want to have some guests on and I you know I wanna you know moving between having a good time with it and I'm not calling every pitch and you know in a third of its four. Nothing I would say. We're going to start to move away from a little bit so I but with that. I think that you know it's so easy working without a when it's MLB. And I just you know. I know what You know what the players look like. And who's who just by row. And in this instance it's it's a lot more challenging so I wanNA have a good time with it. I don't want to take it this. I'm not calling games like the seventh game of the world series of just not but I wanted. I wanted teach people something about Korean baseball and have a good time. So I it's it's GonNa be a work in progress is what I would say. Who's your audience going to be at five thirty in the morning and like Gamblers and I. I wish I could tell you I mean I know. People are starved for Sports. But it's You know I I wish I could say. I wish I could say it can't gamblers Gambler's that'll work book. We'll talk to you. Thank you sir.

All-Star Bam Adebayo Heats Up Miami

"That was the sound of Miami Heat Center Bam Outta Bio doing what he does best destroying souls the court now in its third year. Outta BIOS had a breakout season. Earning his first all star berth and leading the heat to a surprising start today. Espn Zach Lowe brings us the story of one of the NBA's rising superstars and tells us why not everyone saw this coming. I mean at times. It's Friday February fourteenth this is espn daily presented by ADT. Isak Meena thanks for doing this. Oh my pleasure. I like small third time. That means I'm not blowing it. Debbie's whatever the numbers say. I'm not blowing Zach Lowe is an NBA insider for ESPN. His latest piece is a profile of Miami Heat. All-star Bam Auto Bio Zach. We're coming up on the All Star game and one of the first timers this year is Bam Outta bio the Miami Heat Center. Who's in his third season has really emerged as a star? Why did you decide to write about him? I like to write one or two of these a year and I really top out at two. Because they're they're so time consuming and they take so under a port as you know but I like writing about people it's it's one of the easiest and hardest things to do right. I've come to find the sweet spot to really hit in the NBA for players is like between the fifteenth and fortieth best player in the league. Like the top fifteen guys. You're never you just don't get access to them unless you've known them for years and years and years and anything after thirty five or forty you run into like why am I reading about this guys. He that interesting for casual fans it has to be a player that I like is a player. I don't want to write about someone who's game. I just think is empty calories or whatever like I want to write about someone who I think is really good and maybe under appreciated. That's the kind of sweet spot of guy for me. So why do you like Bama's player? Big Guys who can pass are like my siren song. I I love big guys who can pass and when you watch this guy play defense even more than the defense into speed honestly is the rebounding Joe Harish for through and timed his. Jump Perfectly Blue Ray through the clouds for each verse defensive rebound in the afternoon he gets these rebounds where there's like four people under the rim jostling for position and they all jump and then from somewhere else flies in this gigantic guy with these hands that must be made of. I don't know whatever's the strongest possible material that you can make and the ball goes into this crowd of four guys and then this other guy. Just snatches it away like it's nothing. He makes the kind of place where they're winning. Plays and if they come at the right moment and a game. They're like a Gut Punch to the other team. So Zack you head down to Miami to spend time with Bam is friends and his family to get a sense of who he is. Where does history? Begin? It begins with his father leaving their family when his mother wanted to move to rule North Carolina and out of Newark New Jersey and they lived in a single wide trailer in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina and his mom as a cashier at like a meat. Grocery store kind of thing. Earning about twelve thousand dollars a year after taxes. And then all of a sudden she had a son who was twelve years old and six six and could dunk. What was it like for him? You know growing up in that trailer with his mom and no one else. You know when you're a kid you just don't think it's anything right like you don't think it's it's different or whatever. He had a sense that it was hard for his mom and that her schedule was crazy and that they didn't see each other much because their schedules didn't overlap the right way but he was happy at a lot of friends. You know it was fine but he did say by age thirteen or fourteen. You Begin to realize that this is a hard life that this adult like who you just kind of looked at. Is your mom like every other mom has a job and leaves the House. And all that that it's it's hard for her and that they don't have a lot and that she works really really hard for for what they have and that's what drove him. That's where he says he got his ambition and his anger and his desire to succeed was when he realized. My Mom's life is hard. She's tired a lot and I see that and I want to change that winded it. I become apparent to him and his family that playing basketball might be a viable career for him. Once he started playing organized basketball is not till like twelve thirteen fourteen. He picked things up really fast. And you had good natural instincts and good natural footwork by fourteen fifteen. He's on the map of all the big colleges and by the time he's junior mark godfried is helicoptering in to recruit to NC state in like Landon helicopter the field of their school. What was he like a high school player? A monster. An absolute monster have regular forty twenty games just like he was just huge. These teams in rural North Carolina. Couldn't do anything with six eight dude who could dunk? But he was incredibly unselfish. He loved playing point guard. He loved passing two people and keeping them involved. He didn't want to be the guy. Averaging Forty fifty game and putting up numbers there was a story about a guy on the end of the bench who finally got into game. All Bam did was get offensive rebounds and try to pass it in the week at score so Bam grows up in a trailer with a single mom and discovers. He's freakishly good basketball when it comes time to select a college. He chooses that. I'll take more time to University of Kentucky. How does that go first? So when you win big guys get to Kentucky and this was most famously done with Karl Anthony. Towns cal says this cool you can shoot threes like it's cool you can pass and like run the offense but like we have the Aaron Fox we have Maliki Monk. You don't get to do any of that here. My thing for him get and then. Let's really get you to play the way you're capable. You're going to set screens. You'RE GONNA post up. You'RE GONNA GET REBOUNDS YOU'RE GONNA play defense can do big man stuff because if you go to the NBA. You'RE GONNA have to that stuff well before you get to do the other stuff and so- Bam that's cool like you brought the ball up. You played point guard. Like you're not GonNa get to do that here. He would just say yeah. You know I'm just GonNa do my work like I trust cal. Cal has a record of getting these big guys drafted really hi? I'm working in practice behind. Closed doors on all the fancy stuff. Whatever it takes to win whatever cow says is good for me. I'm going to do and like I'm not going to get frustrated by it. So while he was doing all the big man's stuff and games he was working on his guard skills at practice. Yup in drills with Kenny Pain. Who's an assistant? Kentucky's very close to them. At night he would come back to the and do that. He would shoot jump shots which I. I don't know if you even shot a single three at Kentucky. I haven't checked. Even if scouts didn't see all of it to coaches and scouts would come visitor pick their brains about Bam and whether they should draft him. They would all tell them. Just be aware what you're seeing in. Games is not the full extent of what this kid can

Lowe: How two contenders went all-in at the trade deadline

"If we look at the actual deals with the contenders the Miami Heat and the and the clippers in terms of contenders moves. Yes Yup move forward at the deadline going forward. I think you see the Minnesota Timberwolves have made a big move forward. I'm not really sure. What the Cleveland Cavaliers have done? They made a big Zach. Lowe's point about the cavs. Good one at that price. Why aren't you making that deal? WAS CLEVELAND LIKE YOU HAVE A. You have a chance at a twenty six year old all-star to you know you have three months to answer to young team I think is really gonNA develop here in the next couple of days is unless there's a last minute deal that will just tell us about and you can use that again Thomson was not traded. That's right there was like six centers traded over this last three days. Tristan Thompson was not one of them. There has been a belief in the League and frankly his agent has been cleared. Paul's been clear. That Tristan is interested in taking a buyout. Because if you take AK- buyout even if he doesn't plan on being with the cavs you lose your bird rights and you can't be executed assigning trait but considering where they are now we're android is going to be their starting center. He has to play a a lot of minutes going down. The Stretch Tristan is not gonNA play not going to be able to improve his value. I think the chances of Tristan Thompson buyout have increased dramatically. That means if you're a fan of the Boston Celtics your ears perk way up right now. The Boston Celtics would be major in the market for such a good fit there. Right absolutely and the clippers who still have believe it or not. The clippers could could still use a center. I think if he becomes available over the clippers looking for more shooting at that position he could come there. But if you're a Boston Celtics Fan right now. Even though your team didn't do anything you are really picking a very close eye on Tristan Thompson. Because Tristan Thompson goes to the Celtics that could be the type of move that changes the balance of the Power Easter. Well first of all to finish up on the cavs. I would say this that they have had a hard time getting the rest of the League to think that Kevin Love worth what they think Kevin love this and they have been at Har. It's been they haven't been able to make a deal because of that. Well if you got Andre Drummond not for free but for a very small price. Maybe you let Kevin love go for a lower price than you thought you were going to. Maybe that's what it's about it's about this Andre Drummond and has a twenty eight million dollar player option which he may or may not pick up. I would advise him to pick it up. The CAVS are looking at like we did about twenty million cap room they. I don't think they could use that. Twenty million on the player better than Andre Drummond. So in a way this was a free agent. Move whether or not he keeps. He picks up the Optional Sarah. So let's move on from Andre Drummond. I WANNA get to Paul Paul. Can you go directly into your camera. Here and make a pitch to Tristan Johnson to talk to buy outs or the one player that can put the Boston Celtics Celtics over the top taking a couple extra less. Millions is work. But you don't know the answer is you. Don't take any money. They make the cavs by you out. Because they've they've they've just traded for your replacement but then you go sign and get more of my life could be part of a of another friend and these France table talk need a physical presence. A veteran leader champion.

"zach lowe" Discussed on The Woj Pod

"Lay that out for us. Zach lay out the structure of seventy eight the seed seven through ten seven eight nine and ten competing competing for that seventh spot. Yes so the idea was we want a lot of teams trying until the end but seven eight. It should be an equal playing field. Once you get into the plan term. Those teams are better. They have had better regular seasons they should have an advantage. So they structured that seven plays eight the winner automatically gets number or seven. Meanwhile nine place ten loser out winner then plays the loser of the first game for the seat so if your seventh or eighth you get to two cracks exciting. You can lose a game in the playoff tournament and still get into the playoffs. Whereas if you're nine or ten it's your out on ten has to win twice seven or eight just has to win once and you're in and that's their way of balancing okay? You've you're in the plan tournament that you have achieved more of the regular season. Here's your advantage. We don't WANNA put the sixth seed in play because that Ariss putting a really good team a better team in play. We don't necessarily want to put eleven twelve thirteen in play because you know that maybe that's too many teams but eleven twelve. Thirteen should in theory theory. Have some incentive to keep trying to beat ten. I think they've done a nice job with agree. I agree and those teams aren't going to win that series anyway. They are not beating history history for the most part. Like seven and eight. Aren't being one into barring a lot. Is All these injuries. So I've voice safe. They want if they want the playoffs to be more interesting if they want to introduce a little more juice into the first round. They need to go back to justify but they're not going to do that. It's too much money left on the table yet. Is it's yeah that's right and and what I've heard from teams about it is hey wait a minute like my team will use their best players an example you know so and so who's let's say he's a first or second team all NBA player. Come on he injured his ankle in the last week of the season on the seven seed and all of a sudden I'm out because he like you know and and I get it I get it. Listen none of these are going to be perfect but winning one or two games and we saw what it looked like. We saw what it could look like. The League did three years ago L. Denver Minnesota Denver Minnesota last night of the regular season. The eighth-seeded steak. It felt like I think it was like an NBA game. It was an awesome game. Kim was NBA team. I've just been on their local. It was an awesome game. You felt the Denver had come from way back. They had a brutal Ruutel last month of the season. Lots of road games. You just thought they were done. And it kept winning on the road and set that night up and a and that gave everybody the gave the League league inkling. Hey that's kind of what this would look like and people get into that. Yeah I think the plan to me is a no brainer and a and look the last month of NBA basketball as is is awful. All these teams starts tanking holding players out. No one is trying and I think it would. Ah Tanking not taking the lottery. Reform sort of chipped away at this a little bit in by decreasing the value being the very worst team in the NBA. And I do do think you would have a couple of teams in each conference trying for a little bit longer because you get in. Who knows like you? Maybe you've had a lot of injuries and that's deflated your record. And now you're fully healthy and yeah you're number twelve in your conference but your role in pretty damn good like you're gonna go for it a little bit longer know exactly and I think too. We have seen listen to math. Told you just the math told you that the draft lottery was going to look a lot different but until that moment at the lottery where New Orleans jumps up to one and you saw how it took shape that this is going to be the norm that there's not going to be much if any that the numbers have literally been flattened out and so there there is more incentive than ever for these to keep playing that that one or two games either way just isn't going to make any difference and This is another step in that life is like you said Zack. The last month of the season it is bad for the sport. It is bad it is too much time where there are too. Many people have bought tickets to too many games uh-huh and are asked to watch games that clearly. Those organizations don't value on any level. And why should why should anybody else care well and it also. Oh I'm in a small way now. You could argue that it feels outsized. The importance of it feels outside. Because it's late in the season. recency buys and all that but it does infect the playoff race because if you you are in the race for the ACC and you get lucky and your schedule is loaded with more teams that have given up. Maybe those games would have been easy anyway but like your chances sued upset late in the season or go down and like the other teams playing for the ACC man that stinks that so and so got that team. They're holding out their players are holding out their players. It does start the impact playoff rates a little bit. The questions that the League has to answer for both sides the League office in trying to get the union on board get the owners enough teams on board. They can vote the way they'll vote. So the goal is to get this in play for the League's seventy fifth anniversary season which is two thousand twenty one twenty two and we were told for that to happen. There needs to be essentially at that April the Board of governors meeting. That's on the docket. There they need to be able to vote on it. They're to move forward with this. And April two thousand twenty April twenty twenty this coming April and that is not really far off for still all the constituents who have to get on board with all the details here now it is conceivable receivable that they could treat this like a buffet menu here and I actually meant he would be the right right like we we will do the Centrally the three items right the NCAA tournament the plane tournament and the receding the senses. They could vote individually. They could do all three. They could do none of them they could do one or two. The League feels that they have tied in based on the scheduling and the seventy eight games. That it's a little bit like a ball a string that if you're gonNA do the season and you're going to play in that they've been intertwined by the reduction of the schedule and their hope is they can get all three of them in. The union had been very against the plan initially year and a half two years ago and that was brought him. They've changed largely because they've been convinced they can make. There's a lot of money to be made eight on this players in team. Sharon the owners are very it could become a sponsorship. You know the advertising and sponsorship honeypot could yes yes and owners are concerned about the MS dates especially the big market owners who are gonNA lose home dates on this. Are we going to make that money back in this. They've been told that the league's goal goal is and the belief is at the very worst in the first year is will be a break even proposition they they even make a little money in the first year but that over time time this will be something. That's going to make money for them that this is. They're not doing this to lose money and in the short term. Um No one's going to lose and so I think once both sides have the evidence of that So in other words what you're saying is I'm the warriors I make X.. Per Home Game mcshea center. I'm losing two home games. Because I'm a seventy eight game team now. How am I making enough? Money is the league. That's that's the answer the answer that they've given. Its yes interesting so the you know there's that part of it for them and then I think the players. There's I think there's a sense with Michelle Roberts and the Players Association that they've got to be open minded with the League to growing in this thing. I mean what do you think that. There's a is there a crisis point coming just being ahead of the. Is it trying to stay ahead of things. What do you think? The urgency is for the League to we just can't keep going forward the way it is now. Status Quo is not status. Quo will not be good enough. I won't maximise what does leak and be despite the ratings. Drop this year. That has been well publicized and continues a trend that I think happened last year. I don't think it's a crisis point thing yet. I still feels to me like a league. That is grappling not only with fan behavior and not only with players resting getting in load management or whatever it is but also with the change in viewing habits and fewer people watching television and our younger people consuming sports arts. It seems more like let's think about ways to get ahead of that. A Oh my God ratings are down this this crisis I still think the League is trying to figure out the the impact of Lebron moving to the Western Conference and clearly you know. We've we've all worked together to war. Games are starting half an hour earlier this year to see how that works and look early seasons tough. I think I think if we get to the second it will be very interesting to see if we get to the second half of this season. and Utah's Denver's good both. La Teams are good. The bucks are good. The sixers is a good to celtics are good and there's a sense of wow. After five years of warriors this is kind of wide open. The League has to hope that translates into like everyone wants to see these games because if turns out that it's just better when you have one awesome super team that everyone wants a root for or against. That's that's maybe a problem so I'm interested to see how this is your this year's late-season maybe late season is just hopeless. The maybe maybe there's so many bad games but the playoffs. This year's playoffs. I think should be an interesting test. Case absolutely Zach could dig deeper into these. You've gotta run happy Thanksgiving to you does my favorite holiday. It is a great holiday. Low pressure holiday gifts. You just come just food. He didn't and family. My family doesn't go nuts. It's only like six or seven of us. It's not. It's not a big thing and no games on Thanksgiving. It's one of the few nights a year where I can be a regular human for a little while. Yeah well.

"Chris missile to the starting five at least is interesting to me and not bad and I think you know. I don't know what the warriors are going to look like the spurs this week. We just kind of always pencil in every year. The caveats become a little bit bigger than I feel like you know there's those two and the thunder and then like I think I think there's it's like some best case scenario where the New Orleans Pelicans are competing for one of those playoff spots. I think that I don't know if the Sacramento Kings can get there but like there's a bunch of teams that I feel like are worth at least talking about for the seventh and eighth soloist the west so t t to the point about where they are in the mix. I like leave aside the teams. You have classified as locks and borderline locks which would include it is okay. I like the Kings the Pelicans the mavericks and the Spurs all a little bit better than the thunder so that means I think the twelfth best jam and the West now obviously injuries luck whatever all those teams are relevant are in the trades what are in the same category gory but I like all of those seems a little bit better than the thunder. Okay Fair question more likely to be traded friendly Bradley beal or Kevin Lowe traded. I mean this season which I guess means has to be the trade them. That's a good one because the answer should be Bradley beal. Bud like the market SPIEL FROSTIER for Bradley beal for certain. Yes a lot froth year. Yes overflowing with much froth bubbles. which was the was is that which Brady Kid had the the accident with the Washer and you're showing your age Howard Beck? You're showing the difference between equally debris. You didn't watch the Brady bunch sure but I don't. I can't sit here and call you plotlines. There was eighty bunch when they go to Hawaii in the Tarantulas INVER. There's like there's like a totem that is curse cheeky or or something. I don't know that there's a one of the I think it was the Middle Brady who overdid the Peter Jan Pieter. No it was it was one of the boys certainly one of the boys. It's getting into mischief. I mean too much detergent in the Washer and it just like Suds Dover. It fills up the whole room. It comes out in the hall. I have this vague recollection. I'm probably misrepresenting this brady mishap but there were definitely suds that Bradley beal market is okay. There are a lot of teams Salat of good teams that actually could use a big man the either either as a straightforward now Kevin Love. Maybe at this stage is not just a straightforward but whatever straight for shooting five whatever it is. There are a lot of teams that could use. Kevin love a lot of good teams so good teams obviously wide open. Season are a little bit more motivated to throw awesome dyson to the. I'll still say Bradley Beal Bradley beal. No I'm with you and by the way I I just. I need you to see this just so one you you see that. I'm not crazy when you Google Brady Bunch Suds episode this is this is what you get there. Just there looks like bobby there it. It is Bobby Brady. Bobby Brady is the guilty party. There's a lot of suds. This is Bradley Beal Level Frothy. Brady bunch is probably terrible right. I the episode of the Brady Bunch Right now you would say this is terrible. I think that that's actually heresy like I don't think like that's like saying of course it's heresy because we're all nostalgic about the things that were on when we were kids. They're all like all the saved by the bell. Remake is coming out. Everyone's very excited about the bells streaming show coming up like if you actually watched an episode of the Brady Bunch. There's no chance it's good right. You're not laughing uproariously at the Brady Bunch. I don't know maybe I have a turn it on a a long time. I just can't believe that there's any chance of good the the the the Brady bunch fanatics are going to be all over your ass by the way like this is like that might be your hottest. Take your most. It's not even a uninformed. I don't know I just can't just I just can't believe that. It's actually a good television. Show didn't win. emmys is it was it ever like as Gilligan's ends island like are those shows actually good Gilligan's island I think even when I was a kid but evidently ridiculous like it was. It was just stupid at the time but we liked it anyway. There was no I. I just can't believe it's good fair. We've we've almost kind of actually answered. I answered this question by previous discussions but burning question at appropriate to use the word burning the heat get a second star and since we've already covered bill in love and Chris Paul I guess the answer's probably no but within within the season also no no so Jimmy is just stranded on South Beach they are very interesting trade team though and the heat are going to do something this year sure that's interesting. I don't know if it will net them star but they they're not. This is not the this is not the final roster. They're not standing pat with this group around Jimmy. I don't think so but that's not exactly a bold prediction. I'm almost every team does something but they have a lot of interesting pieces and they are always in win now. MoD for it until until they're not but they're they're hearing decent. I think he's going to be better than people think this year I liked. I kind of like their team. What is better than people think because I'm thinking they are somewhere in the lower tier of these conference playoffs sixth better than that maybe fifth you think they might be top for. I like the heat. Wow Wow flem flirting with a bold prediction. Wow all right. We'll find that I'm just GONNA jump ahead. There's a few of these but I'm GONNA jump straight to this one because it's on on the right theme burning question the number whatever the hell we're on. Is there a legit third contender in the eastern conference because we're all talking about Philly in Milwaukee Milwaukee and phillies there legitimate contender. You're shaking your head. I don't think so I'm I'm a little bit lower on Boston that most people to Boston as the highest ceiling of all of these other teams yeah Milwaukee and Philadelphia and if there is a legit third contender it means that one of those two teams at the top has disappointed or suffered an injury that has cracked the door open a little bit because both of them not even at their ceilings but like at seventy five up to eighty percent of their ceilings are just better than the other teams in these yeah no I I. I'm pretty sure I agree with all that and I feel like. I don't want to dismiss Boston so easily. I'm not this. I think Boston's really good. I think our team I. I don't think there is good as Milwaukee and Philadelphia Yeah. I think there's a a clear and large gap. Who is the third best team in these. That's my favorite trivia question favorite parlor game question that's right. I think you put this to the Bill Simmons didn't you yes we named. I look the boring answer is Boston like if you're asking me to put them lay money on it like to actual put put real stuff at stake. I I will say Boston. I'm I'm inching inching close to Miami finishes. This is third in these wow. That's we'll see Iran does involved Indiana will be a popular answer. I don't Orlando's involved. That's a big leap for land. I don't see I I pulled the magic the magic due to push their their fortunes ahead. They don't have a point guard the basic okay. You're less sure he's fine. They have a point guard. They just you know picked up Marco Faltas option which suggests to me that they're optimistic that he's going to contribute something they finished last season. I think they were twenty two and nine or something in their last thirty one games like third that they had a legitimately good defensively one forty two games. They have continuity continuity. Why couldn't they win forty seven games. I don't know there's there's this is one of those clearly better than them. Who's clearly definitively negatively like oh there see Boston Indian especially if all the depot comes back as a rather large caveat to that last one yeah you you have seriously depot concerns since I have I have sears pacers. Concerns like older people is going to be out a significant period of time and I don't know why we would expect a player coming off that injury to come back S. himself within. Let's say twenty games yeah. No that's fair. That's fair. I mean it's the same thing I've been saying about various other people who fall into that category and yeah we always always with certain certain brands of injuries you. We should never just assume a guy who we remember this so my my my. My boring answer is Boston. My more fun answers Miami. Okay I look forward to that. you always do your bold predictions column. That's that's closer to the start of the season right so might do all right looking forward to that not so that news does not preempt some of my predictions burning question number. Whatever the hell in which month will the Yana speculation become unbearable. How long how long do we have because remember Anthony Davis at Penn Yes for Milwaukee Fans. It's already happened. You know a year ago. Oh I think a year ago I raised. The idea that teams are going to be chasing unison. A couple of years and people flipped out. I don't even think it's unbearable because I remember I wrote an Anthony Davis column around Christmas. Smith's and in certain corners of the media made fun of his premature. I'm like I'm sorry that you don't think this is a thing. It was a thing it was a thing it's a thing and it's going to be a thing and if they I think Milwaukee will be. We'll be good enough that it won't be unbearable and until if and when they lose earlier than expected in the playoffs like I don't think it'll it'll be such a toll moult of coverage but actually I see I could be. I could be wrong because this is the they can often the supermax after the season so he's going to be asked about it constantly so it could be sooner than I expected if they slump if they're if they're somehow twelve and ten and it will be happening for sure a very loud volume yeah. I'M GONNA go with not so after this. Does it reach a level of of unbearable. Yes I mean the obvious differences that you know Anthony. Davis was in a bad situation and that that was a that was simmering for quite a while..

"What did the forty eight hour senior. NBA Writer for bleacher reports training camps are almost here. We know this because teams are leaking left and right that all their players are already together in perfect harmony practicing shooting having open runs singing coup by and shortly those stories will turn to leaks of all of your favorite players who have gained fifteen pounds of muscle lost fifteen pounds of fat or jacked up seventeen thousand shots a day working on their three pointer. I've done none of those things I I just I did. The summer should be for just relaxing. I don't know why anybody would want to do any of those. Do things so I'm rusty as hell. I'm rusty my writing. I'm rusty on my podcasting. I need to get my head back in the NBA and nobody better to help me tune up then in our friend and the man with the greatest pause in podcasting welcome to Zach Lowe Sir. Give them getting shake this rust off of me you've done. I'm looking at your podcast archive right now. I Haven't listened to Rob Mahoney yet but you and his canter on not long ago he greatest this year. You should be back in the flow by society podcasts since since vacation or whatever should you. You've done three since my last meal. You're you're just killing it like besides you had J.

It's about two things about many things but those are the two nominal subject matters so those are. Those are both great so you're jj pack. Jj podcasts. I think actually you touched on this the whole thing of the teams leaking that they're all practicing together and this is funny because it didn't used to be a thing right like sometime in the last I five ten years. It was like you know eight out of the fifteen. Charlotte Hornets are already as they were probably the broadcast last time but they were already already practicing and then this became a thing like everybody had to start leaking this that they're already practicing to show how how diligent they are and how they can't just can't wait for the season season and and this is this is like this great harbinger of. It's nothing it means nothing. None of this means anything can't hurt. Why why are you so cynical can't hurt I would like I want some players to to. I want some player to tweet like player like veteran ex. I want this players. This tweet doubt himself veteran XS not showing up to training camp until literally the last possible second according to a source. I just want some like like Vince Carter Vince Vince Carter is not subject because he's the oldest guy just pick a guy who's like over thirty five or just somebody saying.

Lowe: What Kawhi and the Raptors have done to the Warriors

"Has been the better team for almost this entire series. I realized that the warriors have injuries. There's no question about that. The warriors just took this game. The why Leonard's been the best player in the playoffs. The best player tonight. He's been the best player in the series. They got your Mendes defense. Zach lowe. This is you've tracked the raptors for so long. They're a team that usually in the moment under pressure, doesn't liver. They've been delivering for a couple of months now. And here they get it again. It's a different team. That's why the team that crumbled under pressure had Rosen and some other players who are under steam anymore. This team has a guy who's already a finals MVP. And I think if they pull this off takes his place among the greatest modern day playoff performers ever. I mean, I don't think that's hyperbole. They win. And he's the finals MVP again. And you know what they did tonight. That was so smart. Because just like the warriors struggle with its anyone besides clay or Steph in this game. I think the rest of them shot under under forty percent. The raptors get concerned when they have to take quiet they bought five minutes when they took him out in the second quarter five minutes, and they actually. Made the deficit less to me. That was so keep because down the stretch Steph looks gassed, he's playing forty minutes, who is thirty six minutes. And I know that doesn't sound like a lot. But at the end of the game it is, it's a big difference. So Nick nurse handle quite beautifully tonight. And I mean he was just so far and away the best player on our priced. He keeps rolling out these lineups at the start of the second and fourth quarter that have both Lowrey and Leonard on the bench and they're playing even or winning. And like if the warriors can't win those minutes, they are not gonna win Saqlain tonight. They did not like when I watched the warriors right now they look like a team that has never gotten comfortable in this series because they don't know who's playing games a game. Now he's that would Nick nurse before game three and he said, you know, it's kinda like a Geely game. I have experience in this goes gonna play in every game like we're fine. We didn't know Klay was gonna play until ten minutes where the game we're fine with that. But for the warriors. I'm I'm poppin and everyone of these huddles like my job is the sideline reporter on on the radio here. It's kind of like big peeping, Tom like sneak in there. And listen and I'm really sure with us of different comparison, but go ahead. Okay. But you you're just get in there and get listened into the huddles. Sometimes you see these, where's WALDO?

LeBron James can only blame teammates so much after another bad Lakers loss

"Remember when I was pointing out all the Braun problems on defense. And that he just basically it wasn't that. He didn't care. It was that he didn't care any blamed other people for defensive lapses when it was his fault. And then I had all these Cleveland people come after me that actually covered the team. And it's weird when? Like media members come after you. And then I realized that you're just like you have no credibility whatsoever. And I can't even believe somebody credential credentials you to the stuff if you can't watch the game and see that he didn't play defense. So last night and into today. This was a remarkable these are new worlds new waters. However, you want to phrase it that we were entering because before when LeBron didn't play defense, or is indifferent or played against the worst offensive player that was a wing which has been doing now for two years. He's been doing this for a long time. He started off the season bad with LA. Nice little stretch since he's come back. He's been indifferent. He doesn't even get back. Sometimes he's been doing this for awhile. And when you look at his final stat line against Memphis. You like, oh, what are you talking about Rousseau? He's incredible. Again. That's how good he is. That's how good he is that he can actually put together these incredible games. But there's certain games the game against Philly, whereas final stat lines little bit better. Because it was almost like he was rushing to get to the end this never mattered because whenever he was doing in Cleveland, they still were threatened east. They came out of the east every single time. But this is. Is the rule? The number one rule all the stuff that we do if you win games. We don't really care. And when you lose we care and now the Lakers are outside of the playoffs. And with the remaining schedule looks really tough. I still think that this Lakers thing being disasters bit overblown because had he been healthy. And they have a better record during those eighteen games. He's off you. They're still in the mix certainly a playoff spot. Maybe not the four seed. But now that this is happening. And it's like wait is LeBron gonna miss the plastic, dude. He's going to miss the playoffs. And then it's gonna turn into like how many people can we blame here who are we going to blame? But to see him spotlighted on Twitter last night in get up this morning. And then everybody acting like this is new it does make me feel like I'm the best person listen to so you're welcome. But nobody was really doing this. Nobody else is really talking about it. And that's just my point is none of this changed except that they're not winning games. So to point this out like outlook what lebrons doing now? This isn't new this isn't new folks he's actually been better defensively for stretches with this year than he was last year with Cleveland, he was terrible last year with Cleveland, and if he wants to pay himself and it works and they get to the NBA finals. That's awesome. But I just this is a this is a great another great example of playing the results, which is something we all do I do it sometimes too. But with this LeBron thing, it was really funny watching the shows studio stuff this morning, going, wait a minute.

"So if you leave comments folks, sometimes you get results appreciate you big Julie who says Howard is one of the most balanced NBA, journalists I've ever read heard watched I feel cheesy just reading that out loud. But thank you big Julie. Appreciate that. And yes, as you note, I do value red vines over twizzlers because red vines are phenomenal and twizzlers are the work of the devil as we know appreciate all that feedback. Keep bringing it folks you can hit me up in the comments on apple podcasts anytime, I do look there. You can hit me up, of course, on Twitter as well at Howard Beck, and again, preach you all listening. So we'll get to this in just a minute with Zach Lowe, we covered a bunch of things. Tom sibito the end of that era in Minnesota superstar movement. Is there such a thing as too much in the NBA is a problem? Ultimately, we bitch a little bit about all star balloting. And then we play a really fun game. I call tanking or just crappy so a fun conversation as it always is with Mugabe's Zach Lowe. So without further ado, here's my conversation with Zach Lowe. Now joined in studio by a man who has mastered the art of the timely pause. So I have to say welcome to the host of the low post podcast Zach Lowe, I can't get the pas down. I just there's nobody on earth who can replicate that pause. It's. It's one of three or four biggest in only skills in life along with as I said on my part is very good at pretending to be a wolf from my daughter. I Grau all and like chaser around. She's I scare her cousin is too scared for me to play a wolf because I'm such a good wolf. Wow. Top-three skill for me wolf watching basketball and the pausing. That's it. That's all I bring to life. Can't do anything else. How long did this wolf impression? Take you to perfect or were you were you just was this just innate you just got to get into it with small children small children, really like me. My wife says it's because I have clownish features and look like a clown. I think it's be I do have a very large knows. I think it's because I go for it. I'm in. I'm all in to be entertaining. Now, actual parenting. Maybe not so good. No, it's a balance. We we gotta entertain our kids. We gotta keep them in line. If my kid or kids become fuck ups is one hundred percent my phone. Yeah. Now, my wife's phone is a hundred percent my foot that sounds about. Right. I've hung out with you guys before she seems like seems like the responsible one. Well, you hung out with me on my fortieth birthday party. Yes. In august. So is NBA off season. And I was turning forty and my wife forced me to have a party slash drinking. So you shouldn't judge my parenting skills based on that event. I I mean, look it's not like the the beer wasn't in your daughter's hands. So you know, I mean as far as I could tell everything was okay in on the up and up. Okay. That was that was a fun day. Let's talk about basketball. Let's talk about basketball. There are no jobs in the NBA. But this was a pretty active one way we don't have to spend a lot of time on tips because it's a Thursday. Like, we've already had like, you know, wall-to-wall twenty four seven emergency team coverage by the NBA community. But let me just say this before I asked you couple of things about the tips thing. One. I don't think there should have been that. Controversial or surprising of decision. Given the results you hire a guy who's supposed to be a defensive specialist. He comes in. And they're in in his three years you rate twenty-seventh twenty fifth and then this year sixteenths before it gets fired in defensive rating brings up one of my questions about whether it's coaching or personnel. That matters most in NBA defense. We can talk about that little he made a Butler deal that on the front end was a gamble. Then it went bad and on the back end waited too long to resolve. I mean, there's there's there's plenty of of good reason. Even if you like tips, and we all do there's plenty of reason to depart here. So here's the question..

The Wizards are too slow to pick up their pace in loss to Mavericks

"Doesn't look like the wizards are going to win a championship this year. The wizards aren't just like bad start. Then look like a bad team, especially last night going up against the Mavericks who aren't exactly the class of the Western Conference. It didn't look good. They've got to wait Howard back. All the all though, he is a little bit hampered. But here's the things rose. They've kind of feels like this team has to make a move like it does feel like it, and the can't really trade John wall until July first because of the fifteen percent trade kicker Zach Lowe, explain for us in an article today are they gonna move Bill. Are they gonna move wall? And eat the fifteen percent like what you see the future of this season for the wizards will be this is a unique dynamic because the Washington Wizards having all. All star back core in in wall and Beal, but the chess moves that they bet on was Otto porter. They gave him a hundred million dollar contract. Solidified a wing position when that player does it become somebody that performs at an off star level. And now hampers you salary wise you bring into white Howard to help at the hoop be a finisher give you some rebounded. Give you some toughness. You have one of the Morris twins who provides that as well, but cohesive unit for some strange reason, they're not able to get on the same page as it relates to communicating defensively sacrificing for one another offensively, and it has shown me that the parks don't fit. I love the progression of Kelly Oubre. I like him as a young player. They have so many guys that just haven't been game changers for what you hope they do. And it's not only about talent. It's about cohesion.

"A lot of it doesn't have anything to do pertain to winning getting lebron james is a heck of a a get by the lakers i think the roster building outside of that has been for me a little bit peculiar usually you're trying to surround james with as much shooting instability as you can and it looks like they've actually gone just the opposite of that very little shooting and some unique personalities to incorporate alongside james because lonzo ball rondo all those guys they're not gonna handle as much as they normally handle because if they do in james doesn't have it then that makes no sense either so i found the james acquisition to be for them obviously a great day in laker history but as far as the rest of the roster construction it's been a little peculiar to me so the thought processes at the spurs will ultimately trade why to his destination being the lakers but not so fast as tom throw a bleacher report who joined freddie and fitz simons top choice for collides camp is not the lakers anymore ever since lebron james went to the lakers tune has changed lebron james is the guy and kawhi leonard guy essentially michael barry report david was that he doesn't want to play for the lakers second fiddles and lebron actually he does angeles clippers you know if you're a team like the philadelphia seventy sixers most confusing is if you're going to give up the farm for kawhi leonard and you know that he wants to make it back to california you know i'm going to be a real reluctant to put in marquel folsom that deal with the miami twenty twenty one pick that holds a lot of value being unprotected and who knows what happens with the mind eating a couple of years seventy sixers have the assets to get a deal done but if you can't guarantee that he's gonna stay long term that's really difficult at the end of the day i think i think kawhi leonard is going to end up in the philadelphia seventy sixers organization simply because i think colli leonard would make a lot of sense going east that's straight talk wireless nationwide coverage on america's.
