"All those cavalry with you should today Obama care, ESPN analyst Hang on the shell Pennzoil performance. I'm shiny. The Nuggets have been right near the top of the West all year, but their three and three in the bubble they haven't looked at good. What's going on? You know the bubble of the huge adjustment. A lot of people don't realize that a lot of the players that are dominating this level are not necessarily the players that we thought would dominate the bubble. You know, it's the players that sort of have seen the bubble is a huge opportunity. So like it's not so easy to transition it like it's funny. I have assisted in the wobble of you have the right. And she has basically been saying, like I'm glad to play and be in the bubble because he spent so much time the last few months also were on the executive committee of the WNBA. Like on Doom's negotiating this return to play so guys going down place, and it was a side relief like that one instance in which playing is just free for her. There's a lot of players that you know, had no pressure that are blowing out like There are a lot of factors in the equation. We even heard LeBron James talk about how this is an adjustment for him. And this is the guy who is considered to be the man and the arena, and he's used to controlling his surrounding, But guess what? The surrounding their completely controlled there, no fans. It's not the same. And so like. This is an adjustment for all players, like maybe out of rhythm and out of think, even though that like you had a long time, you know, quarantined like And you should be excited to play. It's not so easy to go out there and connect those dots. The Los Angeles Clippers. The opponents tonight Lakers Clippers. They are the top two teams in the Western Conference. But is there a sleeper that you're looking at in the West? I mean, I think I like you. But you can see the way that it could be a sleeper. So I'm going to go out out of there. But, you know, you just mentioned them from Houston. The Houston Rockets, like their team is not perfect, right? Like Sometimes you're wondering, wise, important, shooting 40 shots of game. But I think the coolest thing about being from from Houston and and seeing the different iterations of the lockets whether it goes back to like Dwight Howard Day what they give really? We had We had mantra as we have, Lou Will. We had Chris Paul Post on another great home, and you know, Casey, and now we're in this new, like, grow ball right, like where they parted, and Russell Westbrook are Bro's And guess what Broke. I was working. I love it because I think James has felt so much pressure because he's so so talented to do all of the work, and his teammates have sort of. Let him do it because he's that talented, But that's not necessarily what the best thing The best thing is to have a partner in crime. And that's Russell Westbrook, who has had a heck of a season. Because James has been like cool. I could take a break and empower someone else and they have that bromance from the O'Casey days and back to me is what makes this team Dangerous because they're the type of team that could be down 30 and they don't care what the score is, Don't they could be up there. They're still coming at you hard in ways They're going to put up a lot of three point shot. They're gonna place that a style feel what With all the plans is saying, you know, when it comes to basketball there, gonna play that tempo and they're not going to be disturbed whether they lose game one or Game five or being too They're going to play their brand of basketball. Sometimes that's exactly how do you need to be successful? Russ did not play today because of a strained quad. He's gonna be out on Friday his availability It's going to be reevaluated over the weekend. Does that scare you? Then? No, no, I think you know, at the end of the season, I think people are being hyper vigilant Tio how the athletes feel. Obviously, there's certain games where, you know situations, the positions in which people there and already locked up in established one game out, though. I am not why people have to give me words You've got to think about everything should be made by the way. I I like. I like when you delve deep into the rockets, and you go back to Dwight Howard days. I'm thinking in my mind. How about Akiva 94 95 90 and that I know, I even remember my first memory. The Rockets was Ralph Sampson punching Jerry see Sting of the Celtics in 86 during the finals. Oh, so it's funny because I was watching the last dance. Okay, They have to like reference. You know that the championship back to back championships in here like you've been like used to say about the end between her and Houston was ready. It was like we don't care about.

Lillard has done that putting up fifties putting up sixties waving bye bye I'm just saying. He's an elite performer pay attention really is he really is only performer six at three, sixty point games all this season and he said before it went down the bubble that he just needs. He just needs a chance just give him a chance. If he's GonNa go down there a chance to make the playoffs they did it really looks like he is going to make the playoffs but I was so happy for him watching this game and watching this magnificent historical performance, and then after the game, we all seen it by now he did this just look at the attitude look at the Salle Jalen a very simple question. You just won the game dog why are you so mad? Because he slept on and Jacoby he didn't choose to join a super t he got drafted by. PORTLAND. You this as a great producer in the game over twenty years the only way we're going to talk about them is it they ball it. Okay, and he's been able to lead them to the playoffs. They made the Western Conference finals. They are team that when you look in the rear view mirror at an AC, like wait a minute Lakers, got to play them in a first round I. Oh. By. WHO Knows Dave I. WanNa. See Lebron to get on fall with Avery Bradley. He's going. House texts emojis. DM's own calls corruption.

I loved him so much not only did he plays way potentially into the playoffs last night but I think he might have plays way into something else we learned that the NBA is going to be giving away. Bubble awards just for these games sort of MVP awards for the bubble Jalen, who do you have as your Orlando Mvp? I wish that they were give some special off wax awards like received the best video via dam. Or sit out the best video on twitter. You know got the best response from celebrity in the bubble I was told a type of war. Station, I'm calling longest based on. The annual will lemon pepper. But I feel like. MVP No doubt about it I mean what Portland needs to get done he's delivering he came on this show and told us like people are saying what he was talking about what he was going to do when he got to the bubble where he said that on this show is shot the TJ Warren who had been averaging twenty all year, and all of a sudden pandemic hitting the world stop started paying attention to him and he arrived it for big numbers and how about Gary Julia under the radar not MVP old bubble type conversation but man is productivity has been something that they've really need it for that squad hot. The undefeated Phoenix Suns. MVP. Mvp they always say Bass player best team if you look at that behind undefeated son's best player. Devon. Devon Booker as my MVP, but that was before days scored sixty one for. Over thirty six assists a game I mean he's just he's led the best player. He's been the best player on the best team in the regular season in the bubble. However, this is Dame Lillard award and he is going to win it and he is going to make the playoffs and he is going to get the Lakers problems and I can't wait for it. Moving on to will who will likely be this year's regular season MVP. By. The name of Jonathan Takubo they have locked in the number one in the eastern conference they're just out there tuning up getting rhythm getting ready for the playoffs for the first one eight matchup against the magic and wait a second who something happened against the wizards who have nothing to play for last night. There's a little back and forth between him and your Michigan Wolverine Brethren, Maurice Wagner, and then wait wait was that a he just. Talking a little bit and then Yana straight comes over and headbutts. Him. Why to sell it a little bit. Jalen, is this a key to sort of getting into Janas head over the course of a seven game series? We've seen him go back and forth a couple holding back moments in the bubble can opposing teams use this against him? That just a precursor to possibly see in a lot more wwe on ESPN, and we love that you see is auditioning getting his gronk on how about this when you're the back to back MVP. That you're so very intense at the Washington. Wizards can get you. So emotionally invested that you wanna do that to any one of their players when you guys are planning for way different goals but at the same time. You can be doing this big fella anything can happen. Okay. You have buttons somebody would if you got a little, not would've you the cost some blood like anything could have become a recurrent injury light. You gotTA. Hold a big fella, carnival he no. He can't be making decisions like that especially at this point of the cease. I'm going to the media thing and take this too far. Jalen a couple of things could happen you talking about potential let's he headbutts let's say movember punches him back. Then Yanni's feels obligated next scrummage suspended for a couple of playoff games and one of the greatest things that Lebron. James. Did in that magical run to beat the seventy three win warriors in game seven was make Trayvon Green Punch. The Judge Lebron that he stepped over him intentionally knowing that draymond green was an emotional fiery player and he used that to his advantage per se potentially if I was in. Opposing coach on an opposing team at throw in my backup cinema backup power forward and say listen get into it with the honest use that to your advantage. Maybe get suspended per game kicked out a game. He kicked out of this one. This is the I guy I on moving forward because he is that intense and he is that good that you have to use these kind of dirty tricks against him and the books I can't wait for that to happen but Jalen I saw tweet from load I said we got to take us behind on this let's go bomb..

And that's that's Ajay Stew reference from back in the day would ask Clara's Christoph Waltz right through that segment. Mr 68 crying right now. Christoph Waltz is dropping n ba He was dropping so much. He was dropping dimes dropping science. I was Bubbas and Nettie. He was dropping knowledge.

He ran against the more Smith to be the end of the NFL player representative, and he's a By who has fought for players, right? So he turns 50 today in a fantastic dude, I want to talk about this before we get out of the first hour because we touched in the first hour cause I'm a little turned, Randy said. Third our first hour I've been watching a timeline Chris, Southern California Or is it South? Cal? I think it's south cow. OK, I think it's I got to say I've been watching a ton of MBA in the bubble just like Crystal. Tio, I I like it. Almost a cz. Muchas Dwight Howard hates wearing masks. So you're saying a lot That dude does not like wearing a mask. Love's not being safe. Thie nd A It might be one of the scant few doesn't like wearing physical masks. Let's just say that number a couple years ago when he says, I don't like where he mastered interview that was interesting, Precursor MBA, Maybe one of the scant few team sports that we get to watch it on the NHL and the NHL. I see it. I don't know, distinctly different than the regular MBA games. What's happening the bubble and I like it. I'm fine with it being different. I feel like the games have been. It's like watching a really great running, reminding me in last dance when Jordan was shooting Space jam, and then he would have those like insane runs late at night, and you saw the players getting together. It feels a little bit like that. It was getting a behind the scenes DVD. Look at what the N ba kind of is and you know it's fun. Any time you hear the audio drop for, like, eight seconds on what I'm saying to each other dropping F bombs left and right. Guys are taking it seriously as seriously as Lou Williams. One swings from a strip club. Listen, I like the MBA so much, and I have a question. I know there are on ly to Morris twins, but it feels like they're on five teams right now. Agree. Is that right or wrong? It does. Here's an interesting fact. What happens in the bubble doesn't necessarily it does not stay in the bubble on that. And that is thanks to social media. Okay, trash talk. It's ratcheted up by the girl, friends and siblings. They're starting to clap back at each other. It's right, making what we can only guess is already it's common, awkward situation in the bubble, and it's got to be getting more awkward everyday. Okay, Clippers beatdown Trailblazers last week, Alright before Dame Lillard went off. Ah, and they won that game That was and he had a good game, but they wanted. Then Pat Bev and Paul George from the bench mocked him. It's right. They coffee the goodbye way things why, and they get that part that he gave Paul George when he sent him home for the White House, and that's right, Lillard. Of course, you know that he is not going to take that sitting down. We'll also I love how calm he is like he doesn't really get like agitated and ad so he gets on the mic and he said, I'm not mad at him. I'm not mad at them for mocking me. It just shows how upset they were. When I sent them home last last time, and then he's like it's not, You know, Essentially, it's all about how great I am, which is like Super like bragging, and it's also kind of weird back into Dick and then bleacher report posted dames comments. And then, of course, Pat Bob had to comment. Pat Bob is not going to stay silent. He is the kind of guy that if he's on your team, you love him. If he's if you're playing against him, you do not hate a player more is a human troll. Everyone hates him. So of course, he's gonna troll Lillard on the bleacher report post, which is kind of funny because Littler didn't post it, but bleacher for dead right. So he wrote Cancun on three and then three laughing until crying Emoji Classic Bev I G moment, got great comment by him. Then Paul George chimes in. And says, And you getting sent home this year and then laughing until crying Emoji. Many wrote respect with a power fist emoji, which I don't know that didn't he respect so that I was like? Is that sarcastic? We don't We need a sarcastic fun in our social media. He did so, Lillard then wrote back at George. Okay, so this all happened ever living together? This is so great. Keep switching teams running from the grind. Your boys is chumps. I think it's our chumps Barge jumps. Hey. I don't know if I'm totally wrong here. But like I said, they're living in the bubbles. You're you're you're going to the same cafeteria where Dwight Howard is not wearing a mask, but I see each other at the steam room at the hotel lobby at the Epcot Pool. Is this a bad idea to beef it up under certain ran? I'm asking you, can you can you beef it up in the bubble? We all look, we all know the phrase you don't crap. We That's right. That means you don't You don't hook up with someone at work, right? And I would say you don't start crap where you eat? You don't start crapping a bubble. You don't escalate stuff in a bubble cause you're living there among these people for a while. I mean, It's great for the game. I actually liked the beef because I think now the next time they play, it's going to ratchet up and you can see it. That's right. But now you've got other people charming in Willard's sister, Linda got on got in on the act by calling the Clippers point guard Beverly and George's long time he called out Beverly and he called out George's longtime girlfriend. Daniella Razik, huh? She said. I said this is what she wrote. I said earlier, I was going to let that whole Paul George Blank go and Patrick Beverley because every knows how my mouth is. How my mouth could get. Would you say that to who?.
Fresh update on "dwight howard" discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Which I thought was an offensive foul and Porzingas is gone from the game and all the sudden a seven foot three inch rim-protector is out. So today means credit he comes down and makes a nice sweet little bounce fast if we could see that the whiteside who is uncovered at the Rim because there's no unicorn, it's just wide open in the lane that's about as easy dunk and it's a nice pass. Rush the right basketball play. So way to go and that gives them. Portland or two point lead. Then you're man Luka comes down. This is the first free throw about to get to what that. All that mattered to minute maid the second one, and then here comes dame dollar down to make the money shot. If we could see that this is the one that's going to clinch overtime. This is going to ensure a three point lead and he goes up and he misses that one. So that was the money shot that would at least cliched overtime and here comes Dallas down only one right and what did your man Luka do he went Lebron James? He was afraid of the free throw line because he's a seventy five percent free throw shooter and he just missed a big one and he decides I gotTa make the right basketball play the right pass. I'm going to do the right thing and I'm going to kick it underneath trey burke cutting down the baseline right except Trey Burke was a little too far underneath the basket. So he glances Trey Burke does and realizes Dorian Finney. Smith who has already made three out of five threes is wide open in the corner Mr Sharp. Why was he wide open in the corner? What happened to our man Damian at that point Dame was lost day was just sort of floating and headed started to come into the to I. Don't know deal with Trey Burke. And he left Dorian Finney Smith Wide Open in the corner and Trey Burke kids at to him and then does very weird thing. He veers to his right and decides I guess at the last second maybe I need to try to screen dame a little bit what he had to bear tours right? Because he kept going straight he'd have been writing to. Assure I got it but he he said I'M GONNA get out of his way. But also, I think the last split-second he thought well, maybe I should at least try to shield dame a little bit right and instead he made contact fairly significant contact but Rick Carlisle city media after the game that under ipad sitting on the sideline that as they reviewed the play, he said Dame flopped. He suggested that dame deserved a fined for flopping and yet the offensive foul call on Trey Burke Cancels Dorian. Finished he's he nails it man he nails it in it's going to be you're in trouble because you're going to be down to with four point five seconds like Damian goes down and hits one I wanted to see it. I wanted to see that that would be the crucible of pressure and Damon continues to tell me Hey Since. I've came since I came in and I'm plush as any player in this league. So I wanted to see that and I didn't get to because even Vince Carter said on TNT after the game on inside the NBA he said you cannot make that call to decide the basketball game. Yup. Okay so it's close it's a flop foul, but I'm going to go with you. I probably would have so to speak thrown that flat right I. was is because like you said, he kicked a ball and so he doesn't want to be in the line of shooter he tries to fear I think he doesn't realize that dame is that close to him if so he because he's not looking, he kicked the ball he's kind of looking at A. Billy Smith the he can live into him and that's the problem, and that's what I say about official if it's a flag in the first quarter, you don't say well, this team is down twenty points, and here we got two minutes left I'm not gonNA throw the flag if a file is a file that was a foul, he ran him over. The painful irony was there was no need to run him over true I agree, Dame was lost on the he was out of he not have gotten. So it's a completely unnecessary attempted pick screen shield whatever you WANNA. Call it. That turns into an offensive foul that that loses the game differ. The Dwight Howard Kostelic come felt curry could've gotten in contested dating agrees Dwight grabbed. But. That was also, but that was different than that. I don't believe Dame could recovered. Okay. Got An contested that shot. Okay. So just to be fair and accurate here about everything you just said virtuoso performance it was until the last minute and a half in which Damian Lillard missed two shots to big shots I think and one of them luckily went in and he made One. Nice dish to a wide open whiteside and then he would have been the quote unquote lower case go to the game he he would have gotten some blame. If he had left a shooter who had made three threes wide open in the corner to win the game was it was killed but here's the thing he's coming to help skill. You can't dismiss. Okay. Let me deduct. He didn't Swish a thirty five foot three. Let me dump from that. Okay. Because he was coming to help on Trey, burke, his guy but that's just normal. Skip trae birth looks like he had the wide open shot I'm coming to help, and then my man gets uncontested shot. Okay. So what was he supposed to do what you do I wouldn't. Leave a shooter like Dorian. So you can give trey burke around opened a quarter. He was so far underneath that he was going away from the basket at full speed. When he called the past, it was not delivered on time enough for him to turn and get a clear shot. He was going to have to turn in mid air and shoot some. Sort of fade away baseline jumper, which might be as hard a shot make as there is on the basketball court. Still you do realize dame in the fourth quarter with four seven from he was he was near I fire from debris and eleven eleven of the Free Program in twenty two points you..

So during these. I'm stoked to know what's going on with your microphone well. During the Rona pandemic I've just decided. Just let my hair grow not cutting. They're just letting it grow because I. Want to scare people on the other side speaking of scam by starting to get really long now. Speaking of scare somebody yesterday I went into the store. Heat off so. I! I went into the store, a walking down the aisle. Going down the out, and so I saw a black lady. She was walking towards me and you know so. She was trying to maneuver in the house, so you know I had gotten all the way opponent, but I got to the point we. Just to do it. His. He was like boy. It just fell out laughing I said.

The I went to. Get you could tell. It. Seems trying to maneuver through our like. A like a a some sort of obstacle, course our. You don't have to do that I see I'm good I got you? With you in the store or was she keeping her head down? No, she was making eye contact with me. It was it was one of my neighbors out here. Okay, all right. Yeah, sometimes the people who don't make eye contact like. In the grocery store those are my favorite. You can't get it from looking at people. Like you, don't get the wrong for making eye contact, it's okay we can. We can acknowledge each other's presence. There is something odd about grocery stores. I was in I, went to pick up something the other day, and I ran into a a woman here in the community that we've known forever were very good France, but at the dinner a million times, but over the house of many times, and she could get away from me fast enough. I kinda got it because I didn't want them league. It's usually you know you see I. Catch up what's going on, and we're both good good. Okay, see you later at both what the opposite directions as quickly as we can, because it just feels like in the grocery store. You need to get in and get out as quickly as you can. There's no more garing effort. In out with. We'll catch you at six months from now this over six years. Whatever it might be, there's no. We're hanging out over the apples and catching up with.

So I noticed as warriors at a grocery store. She one of the plastic bags you know and she's picking up the fruit with the plastic bag using it as a club right well i. have done that, but listen. Here's the funny part, so I notice, she was in front of me in the checkout aisle. She grabbed with our bare hair, so I was look now if you know. With the plastic gloves or the one side, but usually bare hand on the other. You just use bare head. To reason for because the produce thing is always inner pre corona virus. Because you see a pickup, this apple this orange. Put Back. This onion has got a bruise. Put it back and you just start doing the math on. How many people are putting things back and touching that food as never been a great seed? Liked. It were far more cautious in the produce department that we've been in the past. It has admit a great seed, but at least you would take it. You will take the fruits whole take. It. Refigerator or at least. We'll take that to it so. You. Look at it now. Picking over it without the glove, or with even with the glove on taking the bag into it, and I've done that many times in it. I do like you said with the bear him, but it's mine.

Got It worked out with the family situation. He also has decided to donate twenty nineteen twenty twenty season paycheck. Calls. So. He got all of those things. Ready to go also has his sights set on the Lakers getting the championships. Is An opportunity for him to do multiple things that really helps his legacy now that he's thinking about legacy, but at the end of the day. You know that's which reflect on your deathbed. How did you impact the world you know? How did you impact the people in your life? You know moments that you wish you would be able to do over again and. Has An opportunity to get the rain. To go along with the hall of fame career. He gets an opportunity to continue to work. In this effort at its foundation, Twelve was started in twenty eleven. This is another chapter in his foundation in terms of using this money to go and try to help in terms of social justice. So he gets, this is a this is a huge move for him, and for someone who's essentially ran Outta town or was chased out of town on. How want to characterize it because he was too immature? What I see now is a grown ass man, making big boss decisions, and is always awesome to see people mature in real time. We forget. He came out of high school. He was a child, basically one thousand, nine hundred. Let's eighteen. Starting to Lee and now in his thirties, father. Philanthropist and the champion. That's a nice run. That's a really good run. I'm happy I really am. I am too, and I want to make sure that I make this clear I am not trivializing the decision that he had to make an incredibly difficult decision and multifaceted like you're talking about so legacy on two fronts. It's legacy in basketball in its legacy and did I make the world a better place on my time here and that was what he was debating deciding whether or not he wanted to come back that being said. This is a huge deal for the Lakers as a basketball team. Because we talked about it yesterday that this is their best shot to win a championship with Lebron James that everything that could be going right from a basketball perspective really. has you go back to pre pandemic? You go back to the way that they were playing when they beat Milwaukee they. They beat the clippers they were rolling in. The is at a high level Anthony Davis high. Level Dwight is playing at a high level. You've got all these guys just clicking and now all of a sudden when you go into the bubble and restart the season, and you go into the postseason, the Lakers at least on paper or more or less the. The same team that they were going in I know that every Bradley has opted out, but that is a piece that has for more easy to replace the Dwight Howard. We've talked about their best shot. Their best shot is still right now. Had he decided to opt out? They are one of the teams that has a chance as opposed to the team. Team that you have to be. We don't know what next year is going to look like. We don't know what Lebrons GonNa look like Anthony. Davis or any of the other variables that everything that could have happened that good point in the laker direction continues to do that with this decision from back just purely basketball. This is a huge deal for them. It is a huge deal and. Look at Frank Vogel Press Conference. You look at. We're rob Pelinka spoke, you could certainly hear their voice that they had deep concern on whether or not Dwight would be joining team because they didn't have an answer a better yet. They elected to have an answer for the replacing him, but they had an answer immediately for Avery Bradley. In so because of that it told you right did and they're that they're holding out. With hope that he makes the decision to join them in Orlando. Or that's the whole thing, right? It's. It's so funny that. What was seen as a move for desperation, right by a lot of people, not us because you know we're. We're sensible individuals, but a lot of people thought you know, bring Dwight. Howard and joking Noah were acts of desperation. And I advocate originally. You guys know this for joking. Perfectly happy perfectly happy with two white, and you look at the two favorites, and they both have joking, but it's on the squad, so it's just absolutely hilarious when you think about where. Dwight was at the beginning of the season with a contract that said basically prove it. And now it's we can't do.

The Lakers are going to go to Orlando and they still don't know about. Dwight Howard Dwight Howard is roster spot will not be filled. They're not going to do what they did with Avery Bradley who decided not to go. They took and gave Jr Smith. That roster spot to hear. Front. Vogel say they're GONNA. Wait as long as they can't keep that spot open as long as they can, so dwight has an option to come in. As? They should communication with white the whole way with the supportive of phone calls and text messages and You know we don't know what the level of participation is GonNa be yet He wants to play We're hopeful that he's able to join us. He has an extenuating circumstance that he's working with the League on in terms of What that is ultimately going to look like We're hopeful and optimistic that you'll be Joyce. Hopeful optimistic. That's the part that I keep focusing on that they are hopeful and optimistic to me beans that they're not going to fill that spot because they believe he's GonNa. Come and play basketball for the Lakers in the thing is is is they're doing the right thing by waiting? And CNN, but also helping him through this situation where you could see where a lot of other teams with some of the guys aren't wasn't really. Out Front in terms of talking about the issues that they were having, it was almost like they left those players out on an island. By! Themselves make that decision. The Lakers seemed like they're trying to help to white. Make the decision along with the NBA on. What's best for him and his family? It is absolutely. Harper. Situation that he's trying to deal with in the midst of everything else. And then there's just a legacy of his career number. One overall draft pick multiple time all star one defensive player of the year multiple. Times later be rebounds Multiple Times, and yet somehow the sense that he's a hall of Famer. That disappointed us. Almost two lines Vince Carter when you think about everything that Vince Carter could do physically definitely a hall of fame, but somehow the career ended with a year, but this is Dwight Howard opportunity to enter the L. but part of his career. Because the to win a championship. Make no get make notice about at this hour may not be the leader, but he'll be a big part of the reason. Why so this is a him on. On the coat tail. This is him being part of the mix and he could. He can wipe away the last few years of random sort of behavior, an odd stays on teams if he's able to win a chip. You don't want that to be the focus. Because what he's dealing with is important is more important, and it's it's. It's hard to remember that sometimes some glad to see that the Lakers are keeping that into four. I, mean look the idea. The Lakers probably don't win without him. There are other good teams. Milwaukee's a good team. The Clippers are team. The Lakers still have Lebron James and Anthony Davis. And so you always a chance, it's not it doesn't go to zero, but it's GONNA be tough climb regardless I mean you're going up against some pretty good teams and did. Did, this is this is I think what you're getting at the idea of winning a championship. This year is not just Oh, okay, we're good team. We're going to be one of the final four. Maybe one of the final two. We've got a shot at this. There are decisions to be made. There are thoughts that are gonna be racing through everybody's head both. Related both social justice related there are so many different variables and then the basketball itself is just going to be so different because you're planning vacuum. If you're used to doing something in front of a ton of people getting feedback from a of people and having people. You through moments the energy, the emotion, the adrenaline, whatever it is and all of a sudden. There's none of that. And over by the way I might not have. This guy might not have that guy. We got a different guy in the roster. This is going to be one of the more difficult championships to win for everybody, and then the Lakers losing arguably third most important guy. It's about as tough as you could ask. It is in Janas is right. This is GonNa be a tough situation because it's not. You're not sleeping own bid. You're not driving to your own stadium. There's no home court advantage in this situation. There's no fans in this situation. You clearly can hear everything on the court going on when a person says weakside help slide. Close all the different stuff that you get in an empty arena or practice sessions. You'RE GONNA be able to hear it on the floor. Clear is not going to be a OH. I thought I heard this. I thought I heard that. No, you're going to be able to hear things clear so as you go. Make it that much harder. Defenders told the do something it's not. Not I throw up my hands because I didn't hear you know you hear him, so you're going to be able to get over there fast enough to now make a do change changes shot is just going to be one of those weird situations where things are going to be tough, and you gotta figure out how to fight through it to ultimately win a championship any in. You know it's so. As such an amazing time right, so we have. Leaked, trying to restart the pandemic, you'd have the NBA in particular trying to figure out how to keep the momentum going in terms of social justice, and not had focused being turned away. Then yesterday, we had this amazing conclusion to a story with Maya Moore. Who was by far the WNBA best player left her career to try and help an innocent black man who was.

"dwight howard" Discussed on Book of Basketball 2.0
"It's not as easy people think I'm very loyal and I've always put loyalty realty above everything. He was traded the Lakers months later because he decided to push his way out remember he wanted to be in Brooklyn and then it led to all these different things. Let's let's stay where you're at though now on the basketball thing because when you first watch him you went. Oh my God like it was the Okafor. Dwight Howard thing and OKAFOR was established guy. This great Yukon run. He's a little. I wonder size but I don't know that we were still always so convinced that it was going to be the high school kid coming out. I know I have a column where I was pretty strongly on Okeafor over Howard. Our we watched that draft together and they did and Bass of Orlando for taking White Howard because there had been so many high school bus rescue. Yeah we're still betty. Currie sure right. We're still kind of in that mode and you're like how can you not take this. Okay for guys. who like seems like he's everything a team would want like well because he's older and you know we didn't know about the injury stuff back then but he just was was undersized if his back stuff doesn't go I still think that's a defensible? Pick like his back went out on them. But then Dwight has has this star. Were you start thinking what can what can this guy become and in the beginning especially with somebody who's like he's really young to be entering the league year like okay. The rebounding's there the way he could switch smaller guys. I mean the defensive rating numbers for those three or four years in a row are incredible member. Initially he was a power forward and it was a question based on whether his body would fill out enough to center and then all of a sudden one of those seasons seven Holy Shit. I never really kind of understood that 'cause the shoulders were there and I thought like okay. This guy is GonNa GonNa get huge at some point because you're still so young in the whole thing but what what became so glaring in the thing that got in his way through it all and Jeff Van Gundy really revealing about this when he does Lakers games now because he's talking essentially about what he and Stan would talk about. Dwight was like I wanna be all of these other things and I don't get to be but it's like man. Guess what at the end of the game with two minutes to go like at least shack had moves like he missed free throws but he had moves. You don't have any moves in his great is his power was in his explosion. There's different levels of athlete at that size and he was never this fluid dribble and move guy now like there were just all these things it was always choppy. It was always very robotic and it wasn't smooth in it. Never got any better and his his star grew. The game. Didn't even catch up with it and that had to be like honestly. I think that's the origin of all of this frustration. I'm glad you mentioned the Jeff Van Gundy because I I probably heard the same thing that you heard just recently. He just did it. I just did it and similarly on the winging it podcast Vince. Carter had Lamar Odom on and Lamar Odom talked about. When the Lakers were are against The magic and It was at the beginning of game one. He shared this anecdote where he looked across the court and saw Dwight Howard. And you know they were kind of sizing up up and Dwight Howard was yuck ended up a little bit trying to make jokes with Andrew Bynum right and Lamar Odom is like maybe for each other. uh-huh we'll right so that that is a kind of a curious thing. Because if the Lakers on boarded that bit of data about Dwight Howard his his killer instinct is maturity level and still went ahead and traded for him. But that's different podcast. Probably we talked about this and A second podcast that we're doing but it during nine I wrote It was the first time I started to wonder if he could actually get there and I wrote only in the past three weeks the desk. Start thinking you know what he might get there. I wouldn't rule it out now. If we can only find him a low post mover three. I think those first five years we just assumed the offensive game went unfolding better and it just was what it was but even van Gundy during that finals. He says during game. Four if he ever play because Howard's awesome in that game for and van he says if he ever plays with this energy and passion consistently with his strength and athleticism NBA. You have no chance. and Ah felt like that was in play. I would say till his body started breakdown. When here's the Lakers? And maybe even that last Orlando season to where at some point you you just kind of our who you are especially as a basketball player and especially as a center. You're not you're not really adding a shitload in your late. Twenties except for three point shot which was never happened with them. But at some point you are well just after awhile. You just knew like yeah. You'RE GONNA catch you're going to be on the on the low block You know I don't remember. I don't doubt they did much elbow stuff with Dwight Howard where he was actually better as a cutter like he was better as somebody that was cutting off of like a weak side action or something because then once he got it and there's momentum it was over but he wanted all of those touches and he actually had a ton of post touches and he was bad at it. Well you think it was. Because he's coming out of the generation Shen of these awesome centers that all had low post games except from Dumbo. And that's what a senator was posted. Do but really. He was the perfect center for what was about to come. And I don't think anyone realized that. So that's an in-between he's a t he catches a tweet era. Ten years later people are just like dude. We're just putting you in screen roles us. You're never were never post Yup. It's never happening. We're we're we're screening and rolling and you're GonNa get twenty five points a game on dunks. Just trust us. He added. Because there's another line that I had in in doing this where it's like almost lost in in transition in that. If this were twenty years ago Dwight probably would have gotten huge money just a couple years ago because they would have already healthy back is good and we're just gonNA throw it in the low post to them the entire time yet. He just. There's no number that tells you who's good at and then when you start talking in New Brunswick the good thing in the intro the assists his assist numbers are awful. Gather under two minutes and it's not just hey. He had more assists than you guys are giving them credit for I went and compare them to other assist ratio guys. He was always in the advance. You know assist broader possession. He's in the single digits. His whole career like a couple of years rees at nine Akeem had some really nice years. I mean embiid's almost at twenty percent assist ratio your years into his career. So if you look at like how embiid catches and still reads and the you know another reason why embiid is better and embiid has more athleticism for his size like I know people will descend like what are you talking about like Embiid is smoother than Dwight Howard could ever ever dream. Yeah but before and bead was still playing we're Howard was was a was a post up guy with no post Moose who would didn't realize he was the only one they didn't see the same the right player in the mirror who wasn't happy and then felt like I needed change and you go. No you need to change. And he never was going to. I think you're speaking to one of the core truths about Dwight Howard. Though and it has to do with the era in which he arrived as a high school kid into the League and the League not really being ready to take high school kids with that kind of talent and help them learn the game of basketball like and the game of of life like he he just came in at kind of a bad time and so we saw I think stunted maturity from him that really impacted his career it it had a noticeable market impact on You know how how everybody regarded him and it put a ceiling. That didn't have to be there. Are you blaming Kelvin. Cato Tony Not right now. Well as you say the the runway was opened for him to dominate for ten years. But there's there's another guy when you were talking about that I think there's another emotionally stunted guy with all this time Darko. Darko was ridiculously talented. Peaches could just see. Didn't have upstairs in the never had it from the story was able to get a little more. No you're right because Darko Heard a story like they saw him cruising around sick. SUV like right when he started up. And somebody in the Pistons. Do you have licensees like what it's like dude. You got to get a license. Yeah I don't know I've heard that version of the story over and over again and now it sounds a little bit like I mean you. Can you can do this with anybody. I which side of the story you want to tell you could go back. You'd go the. NBA Wasn't ready to accept him in a new way as opposed traditional way. It wasn't Aaron Hernandez's fall right right. I also can't think of anybody that's going to be such a lock hall of fame for the second half of his career. The last seven stops prior to this Lakers one where everybody wanted him out of there as soon as he got there. Okay let's go through the list Orlando at the end. Wanted him out of there even though they did that fake was the driving into the airport. He was in la one year. Okay now they still wanted how to keep him. But this is more about it happens again in Houston a team going. We don't WanNa pay this guy but we want to keep the asset slot open. It's a little bit like the Golden State Warriors General Russell like we also is not perfect but if we lose this law that we can't pay anybody and this is a few trade and even if you don't like Kobe. I loved Kobe Dwight because it was Kobe. Basically telling the world everything you think about. Dwight is true. Well dates back to the. Oh eight Olympic team which we're GONNA get to later right. He goes to Houston in its immediately. He and hardened different camps and stories. That if you show up to the rockets like you gotta figure out who you're aligning yourself with and Dwight still mad that harden and maybe Dwight was early on the heart and shoots too much call all..
NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances
"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.

"dwight howard" Discussed on The NBA Show
"The rest of your life and it's only three years so you're going to have options. Hopefully when you're twenty eight all right well let me just say i am a lot more on the fence than you are because because yeah it's just a three year deal but these three years that you've got to build with those two guys in mind so he has to be healthy and he has to be good for you if you are investing vesting that kind of money and he's never played over twenty six minutes a game and he is only started sixty one games in three seasons in the n._b._a. And so i am i'm a little more not like this is a sure thing to me but i mean as it were yeah. You can't screw this up. This is your chance to build with two big stars and if you signed a guy you're spending seventy million dollars that can only play you know x. amount of games james and only start x. amount of games for you. You know these next couple of years. You've really screwed it up. Yeah you're right. It's not a sure thing but how many things are. They're really in for brooklyn. Like what else does that have been injured in college and then during their n._b._a. Career already you mean there are there lie guys have been more healthy than curiously burt. Let's be honest but the thing is is like for brooklyn. What else are you going to do next summer. Now you have avert locked walked up. Joe harrison are in principle. It's going to be free agents. Those are both guys that you realistically would like to keep well. You're not going to have cap space. All brooklyn's would would likely have next summer when lavar hits free agency is probably the mid level exception so now they'll probably be a tax paying team so that will be a little bit less than what it was before for brooklyn. I think if anything this increases your flexibility because you don't have the money to sign a guy in free agency anyway by now you have a guy locked up on a team. I deal a guy that you want to keep you wanna. Keep them but you have the flexibility moving forward because he's locked up <hes> dwight howard signed with the the los angeles lakers. Go i mean this is terrible. I i can't even believe anybody justifying justifying this like we talk ourselves into you know i did this with carmelo. Obviously i was right. You're wrong when it was the houston thing. I mean we we have a track record of guys making teams worse and carmelo had made every team he played on worse for the last couple of years and that is what it has befell dwight howard going back to and he's been put on really good teams really good teams that underachieved and it's like oh we'll figures pseudo and if he does this and he does that and he does all of these things that he has shown no ability to be able to do then he'll be okay and then they bring up his numbers for for some rat team he played for the last year like that matters and you've got all the off the court stuff where it was just all kinds of drama and i just <hes> that is not what i would add to the mix. If i was the lakers you have one guy out there. That is an amazing locker room guy in joking noah woah that you worked out and another that is a pitiful locker room guy in dwight howard and you went the route of dwight howard and i just i i cannot understand stand it to save my life. Have you seen any of those twitter threads that people are putting out about how dwight howard loses twenty pounds every summer and how dwight howard lord every summer changes his perspective about his role on a team. Oh yeah have you seen either of those. They've been pretty good. I like the one from sean keane. He tweeted a threat about about dwight howard losing twenty pounds every summer and this is just the past couple years in two thousand nineteen dwight howard lost reportedly lost twenty five pounds in two thousand eighteen. He reportedly lost twenty three pounds in two thousand seventeen..
"dwight howard" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"He was able to reinvent himself psychologically and emotionally to play the game he we love ego free. If do i can do that. He has a chance to contribute. He's not able to do that as you. You mentioned the deal the details of that deal give them an opportunity to get rid of him really fast it sure does this is this is interesting. I don't remember a lot. The deals like this and i think that shows you that there are a little sceptical about him long-term where he is physically and mentally but they need someone there. You know that that boogie signing was a big deal like kind of shape. The roster gave him scoring and passing underrated passer stretches the floor boogies you you know when you look at the roster without boogie. That's a big that's a big downsizing if dwight howard can't be what they wanted to be in the end up dropping him. Do you think think they'll look like a joke noah to pick them up. If only basketball skill was the requisite and and you don't want to institute multiple offices for guys is gonna play limited roles so if you take javale mcgee out you wanna put somebody s version of him whites more more as such unlike noar. I feel who would actually fit better even though he doesn't catch lobs block south because he has really good ball skills skills screen roll dribble handoffs hollow passing that type of thing so i i would not be surprised based on the minutes. He played last year and memphis. He doesn't get another opportunity. I believe that he will but the lakers opportunity with just better fit for the white light based on the dynamics of the roster construction so one thing i found interesting the news story in the midst of angeles retirement dominating.
As Dwight Howard joins Lakers looking to repair reputation, should we believe this latest fresh start will be any different?
"If you're dwight there's going to be because we've seen this throughout his career this temptation nation to be the funny guy in the locker room.

He will develop a reputation as a quiet guy in that locker at least for the beginning like you need to make sure if dwight that you're not even doing things accidentally really that rub people the wrong way. You need to be very self aware really been part of being a part of it like even go back to orlando like those were he was. It's it's easy to forget now.

"dwight howard" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"That would be even worse because to me. Dwight is a little little broken down and he can talk all he wants about figuring it out and getting it. I just don't think he ever got it because i don't think he has it in him. Whenever drove rogue shannon sharpe whatever that that thing that pump was inside you the energy pump and it pumps your mouth but again dwight wasn't born with it he was born with extraordinary shoulders and he looks the part either. Hey is he a physical specimen and he can roll out of bad and get you those numbers utah his career seventeen thirteen and two blocks. We go there right there right. Now i guarantee you. We'll champion. I will guarantee not he would be an energy drain on this basketball team because he just doesn't know how to take it that seriously. He never worked hard enough on his game to become anything more more than a late game liability because he had no real post move where you could say. We need a bucket list. Dump down to dwight and let him get a bucket. The way damarcus configure oughta get bucket dwight couldn't do it and all you have to do is fouled white and sitting in the free throw line because he's gonna make one or two if you're lucky right so again is that worth rim protection and physical presence getting the bank. No okay who beat the b. You joke came. No yeah yeah so keam. Noah energy is legal here yup legal. I hear all right well good. It's not legal within the league. Supposedly they all the time right but he plays hard he plays hard every second he would embrace that control of coming in for twelve minutes a game and just lighting it up just going as hard as he could and crashing and banging and grabbing rebounds sounds and blocking shots he can do that and he's a seventy percent free throw shooter so to me on the energy level on the commitment level on the emotional level. I'd rather there have him coming off. My you know what if i'm the thing about signing him the a._d. Bron y'all need to get on the plane and and and i need to talk to you. <hes> you get a sense. I need to feel it was going to this young man's mind now. They come back and say now. We're going to go on and do now. We wait a minute wait. Do i okay. We're gonna keep it moving the they say hey. I'm pretty sure that you're going to be the starting sooner because he played big like we had one show so you're telling me that dwight howard after he's made a grand total of two hundred thirty five million dollars in his career which which is second only to lebron and chris paul among current players. He's going to embrace the role of being a minimum wage backup player. I just thought i what is how do you really hold on skill. They're not very many teams that will allow you to talk to a current player on their roster. So what has memphis telling you. What are they telling the white house. Talk to anybody else. They wanna talk to him can talk to give if i got a girl and i don't care if you go here die with him. I just told you. I brought you a really serious somebody else. If you like cool witty dwight howard just in order got dumped by atlanta charlotte washington washington yeah atlanta charlotte wash and in memphis memphis basically say look here bro y'all go here. We go pay today. I'll go on go ahead. Well how well i don't know. Did you have an open relationship. Oh no no news out of the nine. Hey look operates. Give them my women's basketball one one on one and it lewd driven as possible really yeah never heard all all they don't open never grandfather from grandma and grandpa hope. I can leave it on that. He's if you signed dwight howard. I say good good luck tuck. Oh so that's the missing issue over how we'll give him. The white house was like eighteen minutes to give us something like ten intended tin and eight really can't wait for the season to start and i can't wait till lebron..
Is Dwight Howard Really a Viable Option for the Lakers at Center?
"Dwight howard is still on everybody's radar about maybe coming here to l. a. to replace demarcus cousins here's brian windhorst talking about how likely dwight's return to l. a. might be. I don't think it's a very likely marriage. I think the lakers right now are doing their due diligence on players unavailable centers joke him noah's another guy they've looked got and there's a process because dwight howard is a member of the memphis grizzlies he can't have free agent discussions with the other team so there has to be processed even have a conversation so that definitely taken place but dwight howard has been on four different teams in the last four years does not count the brooklyn nets who cut him and it may not glue the memphis grizzlies who may away the cut him if he can find a place to go well. I would imagine the memphis grizzlies would send a car to take him to the airport there. They're not going to be worried. I owe a the hands off dwight. You gotta make that he's our guy. They've probably got him at the airport the bus station or whatever it is they're going to do to get him to come to l._a. Lay the question is whether or not he's the best option here in l._a. Here's one horse talking about why he does not think it's a great fit. The lakers are in need of somebody who can be healthy and give them minutes minutes and that doesn't fit dwight howard or joe kim no art this point of their careers but i understand why the lakers are have those names on the list. I think this is unlikely. I i believe the lakers. Coach has won a younger more active player at this point in their careers a younger more active players sure but i don't know how often younger active are they walking around. I i was gonna say where where are they well. We did a poll of course obviously yesterday. Rods groups on twitter at which big man should the lakers sign and we put dwight howard or or noah it was fifty one percent a very close vote to dwight howard fifty one percent and i think you made a great point in earlier. Hey what do you have to lose. There's no risk you you know how much money and like you see one of these the n._b._a. Execs say hey they'll sign and if it doesn't work out just cut me. You don't have to give him a bunch of money. You don't get the grizzlies aren't gonna ask for draft picks to get dwight howard memphis. You just need to get him here and if it doesn't work and if at any point anthony davis or lebron or anybody else says you know what this guy i these gone. He's gone the very next day. There's no investment before when you're dealing with his deal and to get dwight is almost entirely unique. We've seen guys go from well-liked guys two guys that were less.

Lebron James, Celtics And Lakers discussed on WGR Programming
"Celtics are at least in the playoff picture. Same can't be said for the Lakers in the Western Conference ESPN insider, Ramona Shelburne. I would say it's the most disappointing season. They've had since year they traded for Dwight Howard and couldn't make Dwight Howard how Saul and Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash work. Right. I mean, I like that. That's that's what this year reminds me of of like, you you had so much promise. And I and I know that this team didn't come into the year thinking they were going to win the championship. But when you have LeBron James on your team, you always think you have a chance, and then they got off to average start. But on Christmas day when everyone was healthy. They were up twenty points in the warriors at it looked like oh, this actually might be good. This team actually could win and people started to feel it again. And that's what they were. Laker fans is like is been a while. For them. Right. Like, this is like one of the longest droughts. They've ever had. You give them a piece of it again. And then a lot. It really hurts. And I and I think honesty's the to me the biggest feeling that. I get just walking that building every night just talking to fans talking to even people in the organization is tens of like LeBron James, but they didn't feel like they really got LeBron James this year. Like, he didn't exactly embrace the city. He didn't do a press conference to even say Hello. You didn't necessarily go out in the community and put down roots here in LA, and he didn't win this year was hurt for most of it. And the times he was there. It wasn't the same.

Particularly if you have another star in place Beal can be great complementary piece, and he would work next to Cam by let me tell you something. I don't want more of it Williams or Nick petunia and a mid first round pick for Bradley Beal, no offense, Charlotte, but my personal bar is a little bit higher than that. But to be a hundred percent, honest, I think that the reason you had to trade deal is because if you're if you're trading one of those guys you're leaving the players left behind shorthanded to ever really do anything that matters in the east. And so if you trade wall if you trade auto and say, all right, we're going to build around Beal Bradley Beal's already midway through his prime, and it's hard to suddenly find pieces that are. Going to like make him a viable contender. And so ultimately, you're going to have to just start from scratch, if you if you do any of this stuff, and so Bill my standards are like I would take two first round picks from the Hornets. I would take two I from from any team that's trying to grab him. Or if a team like the Lakers are not going to trade Brandon Ingram, but I would I would want at least one intriguing young player on top of a pick from another team. And God knows what Ernie Grunfeld will actually negotiate. But that would be my hope. Nice. I've got another super depression question for you. So my buddy, Kevin pelton ESPN ranked basically all the wizards players by trade, value and hilariously. He had John wall as eight out of ten. And number nine was Dwight Howard and number ten was yon maheen me. And I'm actually wondering did he overate wall? Is there a possibility that wall should should've been tenth like in other words, of course, he's a much better player than maheen me. But his contract is significantly worse than me. He'd me with a lot more risk sort of longer
Moving on from the 'John Wall Practice Altercation', what are the Wizards' options now?
"Broke a few hours before a number of reports on recent yelling matches during wizards practices hit the Twitter machine. I'm sure you guys saw this. Just to quickly touch on some of it. Bill reportedly blamed general manager, Ernie Grunfeld for this entire mess. It's been here seven years, and he's seen this for seven years. Two long wall reportedly f-bomb to Scott Brooks Kelly Oubre junior did the same thing. Austin rivers got into it with Bill wall got into it with Jeff green, Joe hells, Joe hose told yawn Muhima that is Christmas look ticky. Okay. I made the last one up Joe has really likes the Christmas lights that a y'all has up in his neighborhood. But this is crazy a fire sale could be on the horizon here. What do you do if you're the wizards? And I tell you something about these wizards and locks don't let them fool you. They're not cheap. What do you do? Then. He's right. Yeah. That's the part of the problem here, right? They have their fighting eleven and they're now saying, they're at least admitting they've looked in the mirror and said, okay. May we gotta do something. Here. We got to break up this core. Yeah. It's crazy because they have one hundred seventeen million committed next year. So there over the cap, but they also have ten free agents this coming off season. Thanks body. Marsha that? So So it's it's a. it's you gotta do one or the other. I mean, you really have to say to yourself. We haven't been good for a couple of years. I don't think John wall and his trade value are gonna go up this year. No matter what happens. And I think he's got to grow up somewhere else. I don't think it's going to happen in Washington. And again, if you treat Bradley Beal, I don't think that's blown it up. I think you have to trade John wall. I thought coming into the season we talked about Dwight Howard is that a good signing. I thought well, you know, what as far as the locker room goes can't get any worse will it has gotten worse, and you have to cut it off. Now. Now, you have to train them to any cost at any. I mean like because I would have to attach pick. You would think with some sort of incentive for team to take that for Johnny? You know is taking that contract is straight up. You gotta take a lot of junk back. Right. So maybe that's the
NBA: What will fix the Wizards?
"Let's talk about the wizards. The wizards are two eight. This is what we insiders who really know and work in the NBA like to call not good. Although as someone who grew up in the Washington area, I can assure you it is not in fact rock bottom the wizards seasons. They only won nineteen games. Total. In fact, that is happened twice and not even that long ago. The most recent was two eight two thousand nine and yes that is when Gilbert arenas was on the team. But no that's not even the season where here nearly got into. Those of you who are looking at this team right now and thinking mine, Lord how much worse could this possibly get? Well, my answer to you is how much time do you have still? There is no doubt that what is happening in Washington right now is absolutely a mess so much. So that I believe there's a whole TV show about it. The National Basketball, so slush. The people washed in a represented by two separate yet. Equally important groups the guys were finger-pointing inside the locker room and the guys were playing for the next contract. These are their stories. Was grizzly enough. It should have probably come with one of those mature audiences. Born things starting with white Howard attempting this shot in the first quarter. Yes. To actually go onto grab eleven rebounds. But as a whole on the board a wizard or just a horror show this season their only grabbing forty four percent of available rebounds ranked last in the NBA good margin mind, you they also ranked third worst in the league defensively, which was also on full display last night. They fell behind by as many as twenty in the second quarter by allowing baskets this nice. Or like this. Oh, I mean as that defenses. We'll go on to hang seventy on Washington in these first. The wizards did make a brief rally in third quarter. They promptly fell right back apart to lose the game by nineteen at least afterward. No one on the team directly called anyone out. Which is I guess step in the right direction considering that's already happened multiple times just last month. Dwight Howard told the media, quote, we are gonna get better. Once we hit our stride. I think people will forget about what happened at the beginning of this season.
"dwight howard" Discussed on Pros and Joes with Frank Kaminsky
"I mean, shoot, twenty game. I mean, any check was in would get extended by at least half an hour just for his free throws a nightmare. A hold on loading. We're doing some research shack missed over five thousand free throws in his career, see how he they make. Hold on. I'm going to guess less than five thousand. If shack even goes fifty percent, that's twenty five hundred extra points, but he shot fifty percent. He needs to any five percent. Don't do math. Don't do math, twenty five hundred more Ben Wallace. He means he's ten thousand. So for somebody who shot over twelve hundred free throws in their career. Ben Wallace is the worst reader shooter an MBA. Oh, yeah, dude. He is number two shack is number three. Jordan's number four. Chris Dudley is number five. Howard Dwight Howard is in the honorable mentions. Honorable mentions for a terrible thing to be mentioned about. He's number number six. Didn't Dudley shoot threes. No, no, that's Jared. All too. I was thinking too. So, yeah, I'm just thinking it's viable option. I don't know. Free throws are mainly mental. They are. I know people people don't like to believe that, but free throws a mainly a mental thing. There are one hundred percent mental. They're not one hundred percent. Some people just don't have the mechanics don't. How could they be one hundred percent mental? Can you take the ball? There's there's there's third grade girls that can make it from the free throw line. I know and probably shoot her hand. It's the same thing every single time and you're, it's an uncontested shot. It's a repeatable motion. It's like golf, you know, one plays defense against you golf, but yet people are shady golfers. The cat play consistently that speaking of really high percentage of something. So I've actually, I think fish Lee made the decision. Michael Thomas is better than Antonio Brown now, and you guys can go crazy, whatever. But do you know that he is caught forty two or forty? Four targets this year. He's a stud. That's unbelievable. Shack shot five point, five percent better from the field. Then he did from the free throw line. Oh my good. God have mercy. All you do is present from the free throw line for his career shot fifty seven percent from the field fifty eight percent from the field. Basically. That's pretty crazy. I'm surprised even shot that low. When did he actually miss like dunks it every time. Andre Jordan. The most missed free throws in an NBA game at twenty three today lost three j. lost that. Frank, I'm going to tell you. That's absurd. It just seems like such a correctable issue that's right there in front of their face. They kind of have to do something that people may give them a lot. I'm with you more. People should attempt to do it. There's no question about it Dorset. Let's see what you shoot out of one hundred free throws. Other than those big fucks. That out. Actually I think you'd shoot under fifty. I guarantee you cheat about fifty percent, dude. This is much. This is no. No. This is podcast material. We got to see what door shoots out of one hundred does next time he's out in Charlotte or next time around Charlotte, shoot over fifty percent from the free throw line. Two hundred dollars two hundred dollars and Dorsett you owe him one thousand dollars. If you don't deal..
"dwight howard" Discussed on GSMC Basketball Podcast
"Oh, right. Welcome back to the g. SMC basketball podcast. We spent that first segment talking about the NBA MVP. So now we move on. We're gonna talk about the white Howard. Dwight Howard needs more respect. I don't understand why or how Dwight Howard has become the most hated player in the NBA Dwight Howard's not even a favorite player of mine, but I don't get why you guys hate them so much like I need someone to help me out with that. But I mean, the only reason why I'm bringing Dwight Howard was is because of the fact that his trainer came out and said that Dwight is trying to become his own version of k. d. n. Anthony Davis wants to play till forty. And NBA. Twitter, absolutely. Erupted. I mean, they were clowning Dwight Howard to no end because of this. And like I said, I don't get why you guys hate them so much. And I say you guys because it seems like Dwight Howard is universally hated player in the NBA. I've never understood it. I mean, Lakers fans hate him because he couldn't play with Kobe. But I mean, let's not act like Kobe was the easiest person to play with. All right. Playing with kobes, not for everyone. But I mean, we can do Ron Cording the Laker fans. So. I mean, let's talk about this whole Dwight Howard becoming Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant. Dwight howard. Is a very good player and as a definite pro Basketball Hall of Famer like it's not up for debate if you don't think Dwight Howard is like, if you think he's not a hall of Famer, then you're just wrong. That's all it is like like there's no arguing. It's gonna be a hall of Famer. I mean, is it anytime all star leading blocks twice five time, all defensive team, three time defensive player of the year eighty eight time. All NBA team led the league in rebounding five times twelve and four thousand five rookie team. So he gets team to the finals when let's not forget not many teams are able to lead, they're not many centers are able to lead their team to the finals. Why did that two thousand nine. And I think the problem with white Howard isn't sinisterly Dwight Howard prom, but more so us problem. We look at Dwight Howard, and I mean the whole thing was candy. Return back to his Orlando, Magic form. With Orlando. He was averaging about near twenty. In. Thirteen. Fourteen rebounds a game. Since he's left or Landau, he's averaged. About sixteen seventeen points. In about twelve rebounds, that's not bad numbers. Those aren't bad numbers at all..
Dwight Howard once again looking for his place in the NBA
"Little, bit too funny and not? Focusing on his career but what are your thoughts Yeah all right Well I guess we already got your like super anti comments of right out of the gate about what I think. Of Dwight Howard this is the one thing I think of the twenty sixteen incarnation of the Houston Rockets when the Golden State Warriors were up in that series in the pockets actually pulled out in four and the rockets players when harden hit, that game winner that didn't even cheer because, they, were, like Aw man we gotta come back for another. Fricking game jam I. Ate these dudes Dwight Howard was a huge, part. Of that man nobody wanted to be. Dwight Howard steamy it's time in a. you should've just stayed in Orlando at least areas beloved in his career actually had some merit ever since then he's just been a guy that will get you. Some empty, statistics you know we're happy that you can still go out and get twenty and fifteen because you're built like a, fricken a house, but bad teammate not. A complete player can't shoot. A free, throw I mean there's just a lot not to admire about the White. House. Or negatives I've never been a, huge and you know. What I'm one, of those, guys. Like get it you hit the genetic lottery you know in the NBA guy like shack. He's, huge but I like skill guys I like I'm much more admire what a guy like Steph Curry's been able to accomplish versus. Shaquille O'Neal just because you were born with a caboose for an ass you know in in your just ridiculously large yeah okay you're stoked and you can play basketball but where's the athlete prowess man what what have you overcome you know show, me something show me something unique and that's, not, unique, to Dwight Howard it's not unique to me just. Being a big ass. Dude you know show me something good footwork, and. Post moves with the magic and guess. What lazy and that's the other thing too I mean and I'll give Dwight Howard credit you know better defended the mellow but it'd be hard to be worse yeah I'll tell you that we're talking. About different, positions on my point is oh you know we were talking about those two Chris Paul as well but I just, I I've never, been to here's your. Meyer Dwight Howard man it.
