I don't care how many bench press reps you throw up. I don't care what you squat. How far you jump. Well, What's your wonder like that stuff so relevant to make? What is the tape set? Years at Gilb. Yes, that's right. It is killed show on CBS Sports Radio Way may contradict everything I just said right there. Coming up with the top of the hour. Ryan Wilson joins us if we do a mock draft. This kid sucks this kid's great parliament to put him at a having fall out of the top 10 of all that conversation, all that banter as the kids like to say, these days coming up at the top of the hour first, let me tell you about doing Maura's sponsored by the Home Depot Bring on spring with innovative help from the Home Depot Mobile APP download today to get started on spring projects. The Home Depot How doers get more done. And how about Jason Tatum? He scored 28 points is the Celtics used a massive second half run to beat the Nuggets, one of 5 to 87 on Sunday, down by 14 points in the third quarter. The Celtics family on a positive moment this season, they went on a epic 31 23 run to take control of the game and all. The Celtics closed the game on a 42 8 run as Boston halted Denver's eight game. Winning streak like what's the take there for the Celtics? All right. You had a nice comeback. You finally played in tow What you should be able to do up against a very good team in Denver, who I'm starting to think that Denver and I only just said that's a bad loss. But the regular season just coming off an eight game win streak, too. I really like what Denver has. Jamal Murray, you got Nicole Yokich, the Joker who could win the MVP. You don't look at they got Gordon at the deadline You got Michael Porter Jr. I like that Nuggets team a lot I really do. And the Western Conference could be so fun. You got the jazz at 40 and 13. The Sun's just beat the Jazz in overtime last week, the Clippers have won five in a row. I don't care what the Clippers doing the regular season. It's all coming down to it. Playoff. Pinocchio can get the job done in the postseason. You got the Nuggets of 34 19 and get the Lakers. Who are injured intervention engine injured. Just be healthy when the postseason does come around, then, boom! There you go. A Portland. 31 22. Portland's a team that it's all about their health and they weren't healthy. Earlier on the season, Portland's a team that's in that top six conversation. I just don't think Portland's got to get to the finals. I don't. I don't think they had to get to the NBA Finals. Now I would not want to go up against Damien lowered any Syriza's because if that game's closed if you leave the door open, and we have three minutes to go in a close game, there is not a player in the NBA. I'm not saying he's the best player. But there is not a player in the NBA that I trust more in the final three or five minutes in the final closing few minutes of a game that Damian Lillard And Look at all these potential Western Conference first round matchups. The number one seed is so important. If you look at if we just went up the standings today, and I know seven and eight have to play one another and nine and 10 and to play with other determine is gonna be the 7th and 8th seed. If we look at the if we just take the eight teams where they are today, Jazz Grizzlies first round I know Memphis has John Durant. But that is the that is an easy 18 matchup forever is the one Other than that, though, Sons and they had to go up against a maverick today. When you got looking and we'll see what happens to the health of Chris stops for Zynga's Clippers Trail Blazers. Not the first time, Damilola could potentially be waving to Paul George to get out of the postseason. And then how about this were 45 matchup right now? Nuggets Lakers. Whoever that 45 matchup is going to be in the Western Conference. We'll see what team is standing at the end of that, because that Now you can always just assume what's going to happen. But I would be surprised if that 45 matchup is just not a bloodbath of a Syriza's. Imagine if we No, I don't think this would happen. Now we keep on a vision last two years, Clippers and Lakers in the Western Conference finals. How about first round like his Clippers one goes home now the tremendous 45 matchup. We need the Clippers to Joppa. Few games, though you look at the last 10 Jazz age into in the last 10 sons, eight into Clippers ate into Nuggets ate into any of the Lakers five and five, Trailblazer six and four and the Mavericks six and four. Can't wait. And on the last time I said this Because last year I really did assume that the Lakers were just going to get there. There is not a lot of times in the N B a in recent memory. Neither conference Especially more so in the West. Where you said, why I can't wait for every round of the Western Conference playoffs. Every round of the Western Conference playoffs this year is going to be must watch television. You know, other than jazz and Memphis. That's not the most terrible 18 matchup. Is there If we went with what the seating is right now, is there bad matchup between sons Mavericks, Clippers, Trail Blazers and Nuggets and Lakers. You have Chris Paul Aiden. And Booker going up against Luca and Chris. That's was Angus. You have Paul, George and coli. Leonard. Or let me say that differently. Coli Leonard and Paul George, going up against a dollar tongue? Then you would have evolved healthy. The Joker and Murray. A D or let me get this correctly. LeBron a D. That's the conference playoffs. Sign me up. There's a lot of years the end, baby a guy just get me to the conference finals. You have a boring first round series Second round series. I did have one good syriza and then boom! Let's see whoever you're top dog is and what Challenger there is. I don't think anyone right now could tell me what the 1000% certainty or even 95% certainty. That they know who's going to the finals..
Drummond a Better Addition to Lakers Than Rondo to Clippers
"We'll really both teams. Latest editions have paid off saturday. Andre drummond helped lead the lakers in an upset win over the nets. Thanks to his twenty points and eleven rebounds while yesterday rajon rondo dropped five ten points in the fourth quarter. Help the clippers close out the pistons in a comeback win so shannon waiting to think long and hard about this who is the better acquisition from in oregon out here. I think both gas were what the doctor ordered I think would rondo. Does he is allow. He allows paul george and kawhi not to worry about the ball handling situation especially late in the ball game so now they can do what they really good. At that score the basketball rondo will always get them into the right set. He will always do the right thing. Andre drummond is. This is just what the doctor ordered scale because he gives them. Something that the lakers didn't have the size and strength on the block. A guy that could score down there a guy that could rebound down there and a guy that can defend down there so for me. I'm going to say audrey draw. But although i believe rondo a great acquisition andre drummond is going to be the difference between the lakers winning and losing the title. Because i believe skips if you remember last year would they could do. Is that javagal. Into why they all they own for the most time they own the rebounding advantage. I believe this is going to be another situation that they're gonna get a lot of second chance opportunities because the look the other night i think andre drummond had offense rebounds that gives you another opportunity to possibly get. Am one adult or is going to be kicked out to a wide. Open three point shooter so for me. I'm gonna take andre drummond. 'cause i love and plus he three in august this year

"How do you see the west or the western conference kind of play out or do you. Do you like any futures any value on the teams that you're looking at right now. I think when it comes to the western conference one of the things that is somewhat sneaky within. That conference is los angeles clippers playing really good basketball. Since the all-star break the fourth best team in terms of defensive efficiency there are given up about one hundred and seven points over one hundred possessions. They are the best offense in the nba. At this point shooting wise they lead the league if an absolutely fantastic and the crazy part is they haven't even been health search boxes missing fifteen games. Patrick beverley is now for about four. Weeks rajon rondo sailing. Patrick chris paul george has an issue so i the one thing i did this last year. The clippers are not really respected by the betting market. And that really respected in general right so if you want to bet. A team like the clippers were sitting out there about six to one six fifty. That's one where you just sit back and wait until tournament starts because that number is going to be there for you for a really long time and that was when i was playing with Keeping my too by the way last year did waiting took an a plus twenty five before the tournament before the postseason. We know what happened there. But i think that team is going to be surprising. Some people once we get to the season but the other one year. And i love what denver did like absolutely love what they did the that going into the trade deadline was last in terms of defence. A dead last night given up about sixty eight percent within four feet of the basket. They go on to get your mcgee. That go in the aaron gordon airborne new by the way a sneaky good fourth peace and off the ball type guy to work with nikolay. Okay catch in. That game is absolutely fantastic. So if you're looking and you can get them eight to one to win the western conference some spots so offering in the range of about sixteen seventeen to one to win the western conference to win the whole thing. That is something that i think holds some value out of all the numbers. They see on this board right now because they're a team that is peaking they're playing good basketball and they addressed the weaknesses that they had which is something. I always like after a trade deadline. I agree with you on the clippers. Because i think like i think pressures offer them. Do you agree with that. Like i don't. I don't think there's any pressure on this team right now. Does that make sense. Totally makes sense right. I mean there's there's a report with me go ahead of the other day that kawhi leonard is is probably more than likely ninety percent going to resign so it doesn't seem like they're kind of on edge to win a title at this point right now if that's indeed the truth You messed up last year. Nobody really takes seriously for the most part. I would say like. Yeah and it totally..

Los Angeles Lakers Defeat Toronto Raptors
"Is the Lakers Nation live postgame show in your Lakers just picked up a much-needed win against the Toronto Raptors dominant performance. The three pointers finally start to fall in love to see that the game got a little bit Scrappy we're going to talk about what happened there dentist router what's going on some, you know a little bit of a confrontation with Coach Frank Vogel all kinds of stuff to dive into tonight joining me is Matt Peralta from lakersnation.com Matt, so nice to be able to come out here and talk about a win especially given the the current situation. The Lakers are in in the Stanley Cup. Yeah, I'm happy we need wins right now. We we need to take them. However, we get them Toronto was one of the games I scheduled that was scheduled. I was like, oh the Lakers should probably win this one especially since they're so short-handed that came out and did just that so, you know, I feel pretty good that we're treading water and that's all you know. I said going into this game that just like the game against the Sacramento Kings because this was a winnable game that inherently makes it a must begin because frankly the Lakers are going to have games where they just don't have the Firepower to keep up with some of these other teams. For example, we saw that against the Clippers the other day but tonight being a winnable game. They had to come out approach it as a must-win and I feel like they did the energy on both ends of the floor the execution and was on a different level and that was so great to see to see them step up coming off that loss to the Clippers. I was really pleased with what we saw will get into all the different players because there were so many guys tonight. Like I'm already having trouble. Yeah figuring out who the next man up award is going to go to and not because like on Sunday, we're there just wage. Many options tonight there were two there's too many options. There's so many guys we could give this to Yeah, you you heard the the players talk after the blowout loss of the Clippers that they needed emphasized ball movement and mad movement. I think you saw a lot of that in the first half especially the first quarter where they just decided to blow the doors off the Raptors by shooting. Well from Beyond The Arc it was really impressive to see if

Lakers Blown Out By Clippers As Offense Sputters
"Dive into it here. The Lakers do wind up dropping this game. 104 286 not pretty the Clippers were pretty much in demand from the the opening jump. They they were in control. They had the game bending to their whim the entire way. In fact, they started out I believe the score was tended to at one point. The Lakers just could not score and the Clipper scored. I believe their first 5,000 baskets on the night the Clippers shot 48% or on the afternoon. I should say in Forty-Eight percent from the field fifty percent from three eighty-nine percent from the free throw line on nine attempts for a Hummer for points. Whereas the Lakers not quite so good. The Lakers only had 38 points at halftime finished with 86. So I guess there's that and that's birth. 31.4 quarter but by that point the Clippers are kind of packed it in forty percent from the field for the Lakers 30% from 3. That's not good enough to get it done and then 75% from the free throw line 15 to 20 shooting page eighteen from the line eighteen turnovers for the Lakers seven offensive rebounds. Here's the thing what really stood out to me just forget the stats just watching the game. What stood out to me was that the Lakers they were having a hard time first and foremost getting the Lake of the Clippers to miss right? They were trying to get stops and they were struggling to do that. But when they did how many times do they give up offensive rebounds either 13 offensive rebounds for the Clippers? And so that is demoralizing for a defense when you work and you work and you work and you grind and finally you get a stop you get somebody to miss wage and then you give up the offensive rebound and you have to do it all over again. And so thirteen offensive rebounds to the Clippers combined with their field goal percentage already being high. That's a death sentence.

Well, listen I agree I agree with what you're saying I'm not blaming I'm not talking about how they got to this spot obviously collide played great in the first round Paul George struggled a little bit in the first. Round started building off of that. But here in this series, how they played in the first and the first four games versus how they played in the last three we we can't give all of this criticism to Janas to James Harden to all these other players and is coming up great year we have to start pushing some of this. This is not what if you're going to give everybody number one title this just can't happen.

If you believe that that's what they're going to do than I a hundred percent trust you but I just believe that you can build off. This is not it is a championship or bus, but it's not the group championship or bus the group can grow the crew can build. They can use this stuff for opportunities for the future guys right now you disagree and yet the chemistry and the love and the family is still good so it Happen all right guys coming up.

"The clippers have beaten the Lakers twice this year. What have you noticed in those games? And what are you going to be watching for in this match upon Sunday? I've noticed that Leonard has been the best player on the floor in both games. George Finds Leonard Backs in falling away is eighteen. Colli Leonard. Lebron James. Anthony Davis to me are the best duo in the NBA. Their numbers back that up but the one thing that can kind of swing not is quiet. Leonard's just individual brilliance and he's really come into his own as arguably the best player in the NBA and really the most unguarded player in the NBA where he can create his shot against any defense against any defender. Davis right now picks up Leonard on the switch Leonard. A three pointer. Good those off the dribble threes there. I don't know how you guard those. Those are just end. That mid range shot over past year. Plus is basically been automatic. So really looking at the matchup. The Lakers don't have a great defender to throw at quite Leonard Danny Green Avery. Bradley case EP or too slow cal. Kuzma is an good enough defender and Lebron can probably do it. But he can't do it for a full game. So what you've kind of seen I think. In both instances has been quite Leonard. Feeling out the Lakers defense. And then kind of just gone off the Lakers do of the size advantage. And that has materialized. In the matchups great players matched up Davis turned szucs. Was Right too much for the Lakers side of things that the most interesting thing is what happens with Anthony Davis because on paper the clippers. Do not have anyone that should be able to guard. Anthony Davis Everyone's either too small not strong enough not long enough But they've actually defended him really. Well they've single covered him You know sometimes they'll send a late double. Sometimes they'll send a soft double. But what what the Lakers have kind of fallen into as just posting up. Anthony Davis isolating him and letting him try to go to work against the clippers and the companies have done a really nice job of getting into his legs pushing him off the block and forcing him into a bunch of mid-range Jumpers which Anthony Davis can hit but he has not hit consistently in the first two match ups. And you have on. You spoke with us a couple of months ago about some apparent chemistry issues within the clippers. Much of that around Kawhi Leonard. And the way that he fit in with this kind of gritty salt of the earth kind of team. What's the latest there does? It seem like those issues of more or less been resolved now. The issues have gotten better from what I've heard. They're still there you know they have not been fully resolved. There are still issues with preferential treatment with sort of some of the locker room dynamics and just different personalities and and guys not fully clicking and but everything is masked by winning. They have been playing better since they made the Marcus Morris Trade and added Reggie Jackson so for now I think things are fine but if for whatever reason this team under achieves that has something to keep an eye on into watches as maybe some of the stuff behind the scenes not going as well as his team needs to during the playoffs and coming back to this question of fans. You know the clippers are the home team on Sunday so theoretically at least they should have more fans there than the Lakers. But I know there have been plenty of times where this matchup has actually felt more like a home game for the Lakers. Is that still the case Clippers home games. Have I think gradually shifted over the years You know like I think there is a point where it was over. Fifty Percent Lakers fans or at least it felt that way in the arena. The there were so allowed and overwhelming. I remember During the heyday of the Miami Heat After one game John J Jordan Had a quote where he said. This felt like a road game Staple Center having so many Miami Heat fans in the crowd But it's been the Chicago Bulls the Boston Celtics. Even the Golden State Warriors for Shark. So that's also something. I'm sure they're going to try to work out in Infix with the new arena is making it way. More of just clipper fans have icing on the secondary market to to some extent. But I'm going to be interesting to see how the dynamic is on Sunday because at the end of the day. These two teams are on a collision. Course they're most likely going to face each other in the conference semifinals or conference finals. It's the matchup. Everyone wants to see To a lot of people it is the NBA Finals of. You know whichever team comes out is probably going to win the title of course Up to Oh and season series so they have that advantage right now but I think everyone's edge of their seat and I'm very interested to see how plays out and you'll von overall is Steve bombers quest to build this team's fan base working yes. I think. It's probably working more marginally than they would like because again. I think the Lakers are just such a cultural Establishment in Los Angeles. You know they really are in my opinion the team of a but I think this is going to be a long for the clippers. Short-term BUTTS TRY to maximize his champion window with Kawhi Leonard with Paul George. Try to win a title within the next four or five years hopefully even multiple titles and start to kind of shift the conversation shift the history head into their twenty twenty four arena with some momentum. And then you know long term looking at the next decade. The next two decades three decades. Let's win multiple championships. Let's establish a culture and a history and a brand in our new arena. Let's continue what we've done around the L. A. Area giving back with with you know building basketball courts. Different charities and initiatives and that's really been what they've been trying to do us in Steve. Lomas become the owner. You're on thanks so much for joining us and enjoy the game on Sunday. Appreciate it man. Thanks for having me. You can follow Yovany. Buddha's coverage of the clippers and all of Steve bombers boss moves at the athletic dot Com. Hey I'm David From Los Angeles. I've been clippers fan for eighteen years summarizing from Detroit so I grew up a huge pistons fan and so I'm really anti Lakers fan so when I moved to La. I had to choose a basketball team. Not Being Lakers fan shows the clippers and this is when they're horrible to and I just kind of stuck with them and now we got and you know we're looking we're looking positives. My name is Chelsea Reba. I moved to La from DC about six and a half years ago and the wizards. I mean they're not great but I love basketball. I've always loved basketball. And they play so when I moved to La. I was like. Oh probably be a Lakers fan. I like purple also. Everyone's a Lakers fan. But then I got here and I saw the prices and I was like under your Clippers Fan. And it's been great. I like seeing. More Clipper bumper stickers. I like seeing more fans out there. you know. I think it doesn't take away from the super fans who have liked it for so long. I feel like clippers ran is someone who's there to have a good time there because they like watching the sport not necessarily for cloud. There's a lot of influencers who go to the Lakers games like. Yeah just rich people wanting the they go to Lakers clippers is more like I like the game. I almost relief clippers more to the dodgers. Like if you like them you love Them. You have to Enjoy losing It's almost like counterculture to say. You're you're like in the clippers so cool on another level you know. Everyone loves a winner and if they can bring home a title this year. This'll be all about clipper town. So much the Lakers. In fact they would be a huge defeat to the Lakers clippers.

"So your son. What's it like to be at a clippers? Press Conference when Steve Balmer is at the podium. Well the his first press conference as the clippers owner was a pep rally. Not IMPRESSED CONFERENCE STEVE. Where he came out there glaring. Lose yourself and he's fist pumping and high fiving. Everybody and he's coming out like it's the first game of the season and he's being introduced to the crowd like a flare and that really is set. The tone I think for his ownership tenure over the last six years where. He's been very unconventional you. You never know what he's GonNa say you know there's GonNa be a couple of viral moments over this past summer. When he introduced Leonard and Paul George he was very animated during that. These notes say I'm just to be here today. It's pretty cool pretty cool. Those two guys got a kick out of that and relaxing onstage. He definitely is someone who I don't think we've ever really seen before. Because he does kind of spasm with those gestures and he turns red when he's you know go yelling and screaming and you never know what you're going to get what was the bomber. But that's what makes it so entertaining and exciting. And he's an ex. Ceo of Microsoft. But not your typical computer geek. No not not at all. He's not the typical techn- erred. He was the the basketball manager for his high school basketball team. He was the football manager at Harvard. East from the Detroit Metropolitan Area. So he's always been involved in sports in kind of had a jock sort of mentality's still very nerdy a borderline genius. You know he was the one who graduated from Harvard. Not Bill Gates and Steve. Top class and one of the smartest guys in the world. So Steve Balmer bought the clippers back in two thousand fourteen. Right after a very dark chapter in the franchise's history from the NBA Dow Sterling banned for life. After that caught on tape racist rant now says he will not fight the for sale of his team instead. He wants his wife to find a buyer and some big names have expressed interest. What was the feeling within the clippers organization as Donald Sterling went out and Steve? Balmer came in. It was shocked. It was relief. Donald Sterling really viewed it as a way to make money not as a way to run a successful basketball organization. He was lording over the franchise in a way that it there was no hope it was basically like one. Is this guy going to die? He owned the team for thirty years aside from the personal stuff which we can really divorce from his ownership but if you wanted to look at strictly what he did as an owner the touristy cheap in every regard trading away players Not Resigning key pieces. I mean the team was always in the lottery yet. Rarely re-signing those guys because he was so cheap and did not want to pay guys and didn't really care about the encore product so as a owner in that regard he was one of the worst owners. If not be worse donor Not just in the NBA but in professional sports.

We're just moments away from their rival. We'll go right to them once. It begins walk into the jump. I'm Georgia Donna fearless leader Rachel Nichols today. I'm joined by our Bucks reporter Movie Andrews and our Lakers reporter Dave McMenamin. Thanks for hanging out guys should be obviously a lot to get into coming up. Jaanus was working on his shot with Kyle Korver. So of Yannis develops a jumper the rest of the lead on notice at that point well stay tuned for that but I the clippers will officially introduced Kawhi Leonard and Paul George shortly making a monumental moment in franchise history the clippers who have never even been to the conference finals as a franchise suddenly find themselves with the reigning finals m._v._p.. And the second runner up for the regular season M._v._p.. On their roster so dave let's discuss the dynamic duo here are Hawaiian P._G.. The best pairing in the league right now they're fantastic but there's another pairing right down the Hallway Staple Apple Center in Lebron James Anthony Davis. That's the Best Combo in the league and not because of any shade on the clippers standing but there's one thing that Lebron A._d.. Will complement each each other on the court with running pick and roll and that one thing they can do better with each other skillset combined than anything that Paul George and can do now. You can say that Paul Jordan quiet Leonard on opposite wings defensively is a menace if I'm talking offensively and usually when we talk about players complementing one another I it is on the offense events and that's why give the nod their and even though lebrons older they have the health and that do coming into the air. Yeah I mean that's going to be a big thing right whether or not the health of Paul George is something that's one hundred percent. I mean he's coming off of that shoulder injury. Is that something that's going to be plaguing him going forward <hes> and this season I actually I think that it might very well be the clippers.

"Oh, now, you wanna talk to this team doesn't seem to have a chip on the shoulder at all. Yeah. Here's the thing with the clippers. It's that I cover them during the lob city years despite their success, they have not been able to penetrate, the market of Los Angeles because as you know, you got to win championships. So you gotta get to the finals or at least get the conference finals, and they haven't been able to do that. And again, this team might not do that they probably won't do that. But the fact that they had a thirty one point comeback. They made history. That's the team that you can kind of get behind and support Nelson. Listen, dear Nago against the warriors. Exactly. That's what we know Clinton. They know enough talked to people with the team they're not going to convert Laker fan. If you're a Laker fan, you're a Laker fan. But they wanna recruit the kids, and they're hoping that people forget if you're ten years old, right? Well, you only know the clippers is like the best team of Los Angeles. Remember the Lakers. Right. Yeah. So the Lakers are in a position where they gotta watch out here. Because all of a sudden, they get to max guys. And all of a sudden, it's the clippers like you were raising the next generation of to be clipper fans, they're not necessarily the parents. Now, would you would you allow your son to clear, here's the thing? I'll complain oh my son is now fourteen he is a warriors fan because Steph curry and Klay were coming up and he's the best player. And who are you watching on TV? So he's also a Laker fan. But he also realizes I'm watching the teams in the playoffs. I'm getting text messages from him about Dame Lillard from him about Westbrook. And the basketball fans are watching this and what we do in April may and June. We're watching hoops and the clippers of the night opened up. Some is I'm not saying we're going to convert people. But the reason we brought the podcast to the staple center. We were like, wait a minute. There's a little bit of buzz generating who are these guys. And for the people that we talked to everybody involved said that these are good, and we haven't even mentioned their names yet because we don't know who they, but they're fun to watch your the fourth team in the history of the league that has won more than thirty five games. No all-star. No current also. Store your former all star. There's no one on this team achieved any level of great success thing. I'm Beverly then Ila Gillan Ari. These are names that if you go down Los Angeles, maybe they made her rings hard clipping. So there's a part of this team that like you go against the grain, right? Like, you don't always have to like the most popular celebrity the most popular team. So they're against the grain. That's why this clipper fan base has really embraced this team. There's no superstars on those team. There's no expectation. They're just having some fun, and they are a fun team to watch. How do they build off of this? They way the build off this building a foundation, you know, how the Lakers are kind of in disarray. Who's going to be the president who's going to be the coach what's happening? Steve bommer. He's in place, Jerry, West Lawrence, Frank. They're in place. Doc rivers. He's in place just signed a contract extension stability. And then you have to max contracts into be honest. We both know they might even hype on this. No one's gonna care. If you go to the clippers that's music to the ears of Leonard Cohen, I wanna talk to the media. So if you tell Colli you could play and when you're done, you might have six people at your press conference. Maybe exactly I covered this team when they had Chris Paul Blake Griffin.

"You get tired of the poor play the ownership playing the amount of money that you pay to go into the garden and then having a dump of an arena, even though it's the most amazing arena. But it's just it's not keeping up the fan. Experience is not the same. Thank you. So you'll see fans like that Richard played they played in New Jersey. They played in the middle. Out there in the middle of nowhere. You always weird smells when you're driving. What you use body? But anyway, I love that. We can work away to have old Richard of the Anglo. But the difference now is they play in one of the most beautiful we having a leak in Brooklyn in downtown Brooklyn. And so all of that is new in cool. They'll never catch up to the next. And a lotta times I hear people make comparison Lakers clippers gangqi, those aren't the comparisons. Because the Yankees and the Lakers two most recognizable brands around the world. And they have way more championships than pretty much anybody else. Right. The Knicks still have that. It's more like cubs White Sox. Right. We're right. Even before the cubs World Series win a year ago, two years, or whatever the cubs are always like Chicago's team in White Sox. A little brother even when the White House when the championship, but the city is so big it can support, and it doesn't matter and to to go off your allergy. When you look at the Boston Red Sox before they went on their great run. When you look at the Chicago before they wanna championship. They were always lovable loser. They were always. Well, there's always next year that ain't going on with the Knicks lovable. It's It's ready. going. Expands right now are thinking there's next year. And it seems like Nick management is also thinking, hey, maybe next year. We'll just have to see it actually. Yes. You said in the monologue.

"But how the clippers came to settle on Englewood has been more of a question. What happened behind the scenes and while they're building the new football stadium. Yeah. Right. And kind of make sense if you're gonna football stadium kind of have the entertainment area around there, you see a lot of metropolitan cities. Yeah. And that would really create this sort of critical mass for the region of two NFL teams there then fell network moving to the development around the football stadium. You put a. There at NBA arena with the team there. I mean, and then you have the forum nearby as well. It's a terrific concert venue. You really cooking then. So what's the problem? The problem is with the form. So the folks who owned the forum Madison Square Garden company, the New York based company they on the Knicks and the Rangers and at Tanah stuff the powerful their giant. They of course owned the form, and they were not happy that the clippers are pursuing an arena nigga would they alleged that the mayor had tricked them and to Seraing a lease for the land where the clippers wanna build the Serena the mayor denies this. But it's kicked off because if the clippers move now the forum loses concerts to the new battery. Yeah. Okay. Because you got to fill those empty dates. It's basketball team only takes up fifty dates year something like that that leaves three hundred ten some odd days, you gotta fill up or at least try to fill the forms. I know don't come here because we don't wanna lose our tenants. So after this project was announced in June. Twenty seventeen it ended up just kicking off a nasty nasty legal fight between the city of Englewood, Madison Square Garden and the clippers. There are a tunnel lawyers involved more than I can count. And as part of this people been deposed, there've been a lot of emails turned over during discovery all this kind of stuff that goes on with lawyers. You're just going toe to toe and brawl on it out usually doesn't involve companies powerful and as recognizable as Madison Square Garden, the clippers. And then you have the city that's on the cusp of a real transformation in Inglewood. But as part of that there was a filing in LA superior court in January of about eleven hundred pages of emails and other documents. They were supposed to be filed under seal that means that folks like you, and I can't see him unless you the lawyer judge in the case nobody else can see him. So they're supposed to be filed onto seal. They weren't why. Somebody just messed up somebody just messed up that simple. Like, I'm not a lawyer pretending play one. I have lawyer friends. So it's. Really simple. Yeah. So these documents were available for about a week anybody could download them and being a good reporter. I did. So and disappeared from the did, you know, or how did, you know? I mean, I think your sources, but what made you think that there's something there? I checked court filings every day. Oh, yeah. It's the part of the job, and I'm kind of the obsessive type. So there's a number of cases, we keep is on. That's one of anybody can do this your central computer and yellow through LA county superior court, and you see this and you see the name clippers. There's a few different cases related to the spat over the arena. And I check those those are among those. I check every day and night gender every scrap of paper because you never know when you're going to get Ted bit. That's going to lead. You a interesting story or help to increase our understanding and Morton community's understanding of what's really going on. So were you working on a previous story? Yeah. I've been following this and reporting on it from the get-go, and it's a fascinating situation because you add the Serena right across the street from the football stadium. And again, you're talking about entertainment destination that is maybe unrivalled. I mean, it's a. Big ill. We'll get this. Right. Somebody's supposed to put this under seal. So you may than fennel finale times, it doesn't see it. They don't do it this pops up and you start reading it. And what do you discover it's a gold mine of information. But it's information that had been turned over during the discovery process, and it primarily consisted of emails to or from one of the clippers minority owners guy named Dennis Wong who turned out was a college roommate of St..

"The problem is something that I know that they tried to address the best. They can I'm not no no blame going around. It is the situation, and we hope for some things that happened didn't happen guys could have come on quicker, and obviously back and Chris and Gerald. And then our death is pretty good. We've got everybody little bit out of a couple things up. That was rackets head coach Mike dantonio answering a question on the team death. Why was the question on the bench got outscored by thirty six points last night, just to give you Zampa? We're talking about the top of the show about the clippers debt while the rockets bench is last in scoring if you're the twenty six points per game that's less than half of what the clippers who are the top team score on average. So I I mean, Brian, I know you talked to a more Texan with him to the other day. And he said just give us time. We're working on it December fifteenth is when a lot of players get freed up and have the ability traded, but how how do you fix this? If you're him two things have happened one. You know, their owner just pulled back a little bit on spending. He was spending a lot of money. I mean, I'm not going to blame an owner for not going deeper tax. But that's what happened a couple of guys go second three guys out right now Nina hasn't played all year, which gets hurt. Put Chris Paul has been injured a lot of the year, and they jail green is out and Carmelo Anthony. Who they were hoping was going to be a factor is gone. So that's four guys who they don't have that. They thought they were going to have. Then the guys that they did bring in James Ennis, Michael Carter Williams marquees, Chris and night read tonight. None of those guys are stepping forward. I go back to what do you do now? Because 'cause all by the way, who I think is great leader of that team is always going to be hurt. Some of the way he plays. Didn't work those. I think there's two there's two ways that they're gonna improve one in the buyout market. But that's not gonna happen till later. And Secondly, they're going to need one of these guys that they signed NS carter-williams, whoever one of those guys for news. Because remember last year, they got your green midseason, and all of a sudden that made a big difference for them. They need something like that to happen with the rockets. It's always a problem. I we were talking about their defense right now. The problem is they're depth. And when I look at the issue, not only with the Manet coming back soon that should help a little bit with cappella, especially on defense and finishing. But to me, I like the rockets they just need to understand that. Okay. When Chris Paul is out. Or James harden is out air Gordon has to start and there that's number one. You're boost off the bench. He gives you about sixteen points per game. So not only are they missing key factors. But if they stay healthy, maybe you get Gordon back in a position that where your team is not playing well first half second half. This guy can come in and give you. A deliverable boost. Now health is going to be the best. But right now heir Gordon has been the signature bencher, but he's had to step into a different roles starter. So things have been so so it's just because again been talking about this few times over the course of the week you won't crisp on your team. It's not like you don't want him on your team. And he really is what powered them through the Western Conference finals. And when he went out that hurt them so much you just have to understand that at this point in his career because he has pushed his body's so hard for so long. He is going to miss gap for your season. And you have to have a plan for when that happens. It can't just be like, Well, Chris Paul is out. Chris Paul is going to be out. Sometimes this is going to happen. Was doing though, isn't it that the that the clippers depth is the best? They're all former rockets players, Chris Crispell. Still wouldn't made..

"Aegis. To go shots inside out. No way impossible. Now isn't going to make as many highlight shows as Bill bonds standing on the court dunk did. But it's great insight into one of the dozen or so reasons the clippers are playing so well, we'll know when expects to hang onto the top seed in the west all season, especially now that the warriors seemed to have stopped setting themselves on fire. It is very clear that this team is more than cute. They are real. And that is interesting so Janine now that the clippers have earned our attention. Basically. Can they stay winning? You're right. And I think reality is a really operative word here. Because when you think about the clippers and LA you think of LA in Hollywood, but this team is really a blue-collar team. And I've known Tobias Harris for a long time. We were both in the same. Mcdonald's all American class stayed in touch, and when he got traded clippers clippers he I immediately tweeted, this is a guy you're gonna fall in love with not a lot of people understood his game you sort of bounced around, but he's talented especially in pick and roll scenario, and they run a lot of pick and rolls for him. And it's unique because it's sort of. Katie you're running it. But he has a post mindset as opposed to Katie having a guard mindset you can knock down shots, you can shoot over a defender that smaller than him. But also he has an explosive I can get to the rim. And again, this is the post mindset pivots. He can finish very well. But then again, pick and roll is only as good as your screener, and the clippers have tremendous screeners, we talked about boby Toby Toby you talked about boby. But then we also haven't talked about mantras Herro not guy is a beast, and he set some hard screens, and he were absolute and he rolls extremely hard to the basket dragging the defense. And the thing I love because I'm an Oborne person. He crashes the boards absolute. So this is a very simple offense. Run uniquely with Tobias hairs with the ball in the pick and roll. But they have good efficiency. Rachel, I love the clippers. Five or six of their games. And when I first started going, I was there to sort of watch the other team to be honest with you, and I was watching them play the wizards early in the season. I was there to see the wizards disaster. And I was like, you know, what he's really good, and they're kind of an old school team. They don't shoot a lot of threes or one of the lowest volume state do not run. They're one of the lowest pays teams they run through their offense. Sometimes it takes him twenty seconds to get a shot up. And the you said they don't have a traditional star. But they have twelve guys that they can use last night cortott is late scratch with the back issue. They go to Bogue on the embarrassed the under eighty Glenn even came clean on that. Because eight and look like almost frightened out was a rookie game. Clearly the worst game of his his season. And the fact that you can go to that. And then, you know, you take off the court and bringing Harrell who is a small ball killer ruins teams rockstar. This. You know, I know what we're still little too early. But if also gave us tomorrow, so by Harris would be in it. He would be an all star a little bit worried that this isn't gonna last forever that they're going to come back to reality. They have a four game road trip starting tonight. That's really challenging. They have games in New Orleans on the second of back toback they've to play in Memphis, which is an easy, but I'm enjoying watching them so much. They're one of the bright spots of the season..
