everyone. Thanks for coming into my livestream.
Not a lot to talk about on this spring.
There's a lot of stuff that's happening.
The sports world, both football wise and basketball wives I know usually only do basketball stuff.
But, um, in this episode today, I just I want to include some football, obviously.
First weekend of NFL playoffs, A lot of exciting stuff going on.
Also, want a preview The matchups for next week as well? Obviously, with the basketball side of things, biggest thing this week was David Stern and obviously, his very just sad passing.
It's, I mean, it's terrible whenever anyone passes away.
But a basketball icon like David Stern was, um, definitely basketball.
And then be a would not be where it is today without him, obviously.
And I'm going to get into that a little bit more once I get the basketball.
But for right now, I mean, just kick off things with football.
So give everyone another second or two together and usually takes a minute or so before I start to get a few more viewers on here.
But you know what? I'll just get right into the football stuff, so really exciting weekend of football.
Obviously, wild card weekend always is.
There's always some really crazy games, good matchups and games where the winner isn't necessary.
Okay, was that three of the four away teams winning the football game? So let's start off with the only game this weekend where the home team, actually one That was the Houston Texans taking on the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills got out to, Ah, pretty big lead against the Texans.
They were up 16 to, I think, at halftime.
Yeah, there are 16 other up, 16 in the third quarter, actually.
So pretty big lead.
The Texans came back to Shawn Watson, who had done nothing in the first half.
Lead them down the field, got them touchdown.
They got the two point conversion.
They go into the fourth quarter down 16 8 and the Texans ended up making a big stop on the Bills and limited them to only a field goal in the fourth quarter.
And that was I'm trying to remember.
I watched the game, I promise.
But yeah, I think it was what, 16 8 and then the Texans ended up tying at 16 all and then in the fourth quarter, the Bills were driving down the field and Josh Island.
Josh Island is a really good athlete, and he's fun to watch, just because of how athletic he is.
You look in that you don't think you would be as athletic as he is, but he did not make very many good decisions in this Cape.
And there was a play in the fourth quarter where Bills were driving down the field.
They end up getting into, Ah, fourth and long, and Josh Allen gets sacked for a loss of like 12 or 15 yards because he turned around, started running backwards.
What's gonna happen, of course, really get Sac.
Luckily for the Bills, the Texans ended up turning it over on downs.
They had 1/4 and a very short one yard to go.
Tried Thio, get the first down conversion, didn't work.
And, yeah, the bill's got the ball back.
They were able to drive down the field, got a field goal, went into overtime and unfortunately, unfortunately for me, the Texans one reason being as I have a co worker who is from Houston and tomorrow when I get into work, I'm gonna hear about how great the Shawn Watson is, even though they really didn't have any business winning this game or most of the game.
Watson was very good in the second half, but but if you're a Bills fan, that's got to be really rough.
The Bills last time they won was what, back in 95 when they wanted a playoff game sometime in the nineties, they haven't won this millennium.
We have now gone.
This is the third decade in a row where they don't have any playoff win.
So it's pretty rough. Impure Bills, man.
I know some people who are Bills fans.
They were really excited for the game yesterday and just pretty heartbreaking and disappointing to lose that one.
After up 16 the Texans had not won a game.
They were, I think, Owen, 22 under Bill O'Brien when they trailed by 16 points in the game.
And this is the first game where they come back and win.
So not my ideal outcome.
If you're a Bills fan.
Bills have the Bills and their fans have a lot to be excited about, though obviously with Devon Singletary, who looks like he is going to be a really good running back in this league for a while.
Josh Island, like I said, doesn't make the best decisions.
But overall fun player to watch in someone who, if you could just get him to make some sort of decisions, could be a pretty good quarterback in this league.
Obviously, their defense is legit.
I've said throughout this entire season I just didn't know if the Bills were a good team or not, because every one of their winds came against teams that weren't that good.
They played teams that were good pretty closely, but they lost like the Patriots twice.
I'm trying to think who else they even played that they beat.
That was really good.
But this is another one where Texans are a pretty good team.
I I don't think the Texans really have a chance next week, but Texans are a pretty good team and the Bills played them close, but they lost again.
If you really want to be a good team, you have to win at least some of those close games against good teams, and the Bills just couldn't do that this year.
They're young team, though, so that might be something where they just learn from it, grow from it and hopefully for them.
Next year, they can come back and finish off those types of games.
So that's all I have to say on the Texans.
Bills game, Titans, Patriots.
That was the game that obviously most surprising.
I thought the Titans had a chance that this one Patriots have been struggling.
Obviously, they lost the Dolphins last week, but but I really think of the Patriots were going to lose in Foxboro.
No, I didn't think that.
I don't care that this was I think this is the first time since what 2009 that the Patriots have played on wild card weekend and the Titans.
They stuck to what they do best.
They ran the football down the Patriots throats.
Patriots, over the course of the entire year, had the best defense in the league.
I know they had a pretty easy schedule, which obviously helped them get the best defense statistically in the league.
But Titans just stuck a running.
The football gave it a Derrick Henry.
Derrick Henry is a monster and the nightmare to bring down he had a phenomenal game How many yards did he 182 yards on? 34 rushes, 5.
4 yards per carry on one touchdown long of 29? So it wasn't like he had an extremely long run that helped him push his average up.
He was consistently getting at least 34 yards, every single Carrie and just wearing down that Patriots defense.
There was a point, I think, with a few minutes left in the third quarter, where from, like the eight and 1/2 minute mark in the second quarter until almost under the third quarter, no Tennessee Titans player picked up positive yardage other than their Henry, none at all and for the Titans to still be able to win that game, it talks also about the Titans defense, which obviously stepped up Patriots offense just continued to struggle.
They just really fallen off a cliff kind of over the second half of the season.
And this game yesterday was just another reminder that they just this year, just it didn't feel like the same Patriots it did to start the year they got off to.
I think it was a seven I know or have been eight no start and everyone thought they go win the Super Bowl yet again.
Get the first see and they FC.
Everyone's gonna have to go into Foxboro and Fox or the Patriots, having lost the playoff game in Foxboro since 2012 and they're in playoffs every year playing in Boxborough.
So that is pretty incredible.
But for the Titans to come in there, Mike Vrabel, who's a Bill Valtrex disciple? I know he wasn't on Bill Bellatrix coaching staff, but he was a player for the Patriots.
Obviously, he's a good coach.
And Ryan Tannehill, even though he didn't have a spectacular game, only threw the ball 15 time.
Do you leave for 15 for 72 yards? Touchdown, one interception.
You got the job done Anytime you're starting quarterback for a team that goes into Foxboro and beats Bill Belichick and Tom Brady regardless of wind, but especially in the playoffs, you're doing something right.
And there's been reports that the Titans would like to retain Tannehill on put him on to a long term deal.
I completely agree with that.
He is obviously the quarterback of the future for the Titans, not Marcus Mariota.
So we'll see where Mary other goes.
I still think he could be a good quarterback, but we'll see what happens with that.
But tightens when the Foxboro picked up a really nice win for themselves moving on to today's games.
One thing I found kind of weird was that yesterday it was all A F C teams.
Today, it was all NFC teams.
I noticed that next week I'm pretty sure it's the same thing.
No, I like Never mind.
There's N F, c and N A F C game on Saturday and on Sunday, but usually that's how they do it.
Wild card weekend and divisional round playoffs.
They have one NFC game and won a F C game on this Saturday and on the Sunday But for some reason this weekend, it was all a F C on Saturday, all NFC on Sunday, which I kind of like better.
Just you think about the logistics of it.
I guess it would make more sense if you did the same thing in the divisional round, but you think about okay, well, you have all the NFC teams playing on Saturday and then they go and play on the following Saturday, too.
And all of the NFC team can play on the Sunday play on the next Sunday, where they have the same amount of days off in between games to get ready for the next opponent.
Whereas maybe if you have an NFC team that was playing on this Sunday and then go and play on next Saturday, it's just one less day to prepare a small thing.
But I kind of like it.
I like to see them do the same thing for the divisional round next year, but we'll see what happens.
But today's games, obviously all NFC games.
The early game was between the Vikings and the Saints, even though I am a Packers fan and I hate the Vikings.
I was rooting for the Vikings today because Saints scare me as a Packers fan and Packers owner.
I do, 01 share in the Packers like to mention that whenever I can.
But saints scared me.
I did not wanna play them on one Packers to play them on the Vikings toe win, even though I don't think that the Vikings can beat the 40 Niners.
Maybe they can surprise me because I really don't play the 40 Niners in San Francisco.
I'd rather play the Saints in New Orleans versus or play the Saints in Green Bay versus having to play the 40 Niners in San Francisco.
Even though I realized if the Saints won, Packers might have had to do both.
But by Kings winning this game, that's fine.
I much rather on the play at the time.
I didn't know if it would be the winner of either.
The Seahawks were the Eagles, but I'd much rather than play either one of those teams in Green Bay instead of New Orleans and Green Bay.
So really happy that the Vikings were able to beat the Saints.
I did not see that coming.
I didn't think the Vikings really had much of a shot in this.
Vikings got off to a pretty nice start.
They played a really good second half.
They ended up being up by three other end of the half, and I was just waiting.
Thinking of cable.
The Saints are gonna do something to start the third.
They're gonna get rolling, end up with over 30 points and win this one.
There were some some key plays.
There was Ah, false start on the Vikings, which negated a turnover when her cousins was pitching the ball to Dalvin Cook, who has a cam.
Jordan went through the Vikings offensive line and actually hit her cousins as he was pitching the ball back at living a fumble return for a touchdown.
And the Vikings actually saved themselves by doing a false start on the play, which negated the play.
Play didn't happen, and there was another play where Dalvin Cook was rushing and got tackled and that fumbling it would have been a fumble recovery for a touchdown.
And he just had his knee down right before he fumbled.
So just some lucky plays for the Vikings, I guess.
But Lux, part of the game, do either have luck or you don't and the Vikings? Definitely, we're lucky.
The Saints, for the second year in a row, have a pretty disappointing loss in New Orleans.
This one, they can't really blame anyone.
I know last year they want to blame the refs, but this year they just they whilst they they weren't good enough.
And this is the second time in three years of the Vikings to beat the Saints in the playoffs.
Two crazy finishes the last two times I've met in the playoffs.
Obviously, this one with the Kyle Rudolph touchdown and ends on overtime set up on the beautiful 53 yard pass.
Or however many yards.
It was 50 53 yard pass from Kurt Cousins to Adam dealing to get the Vikings down to think the three yard line.
The Vikings two times in a row on the goal line.
And on third down, they want to Kyle Rudolph, who had a mismatch against one of the defensive backs on the Saints and pulled down the ball.
Vikings win the game, but this is after two years ago, the play where Stefan Biggs gets the Hail Mary from, uh, who was case Keenum, Not her cousins tried before they signed Curt Cousins but gets the Hail Mary from Case Keenum and ends up somehow getting into the end zone.
That was an even crazier finish, obviously, but yeah, two really good games the last two times these teams have played, and yeah, it's Ah, I'm excited.
I'm glad the Vikings one.
They're going to go play the 40 Niners again.
I don't expect the Viking staff much of the chance at all.
But I didn't expect them to have a chance today in New Orleans, either.
So maybe they can win, because I would much rather if the Packers can beat the Seahawks much.
Rather have the Packers play the Vikings in the NFC championship game.
Not just because it would be in Green Bay, but just the Vikings.
Actors already beaten them twice.
They handled them very usually the last time they met, which was in Minnesota.
This would be in Green Bay, Miami.
Cain's production is saying hi, hello.
If you guys want to interact with maybe happy toe talk, you guys ask any questions you guys have, whether it be football or basketball related.
Happy to talk about it.
But that's it for the Viking Saints.
Really quickly before I get into basketball.
Sea Hawks Eagles game From this evening, Look, it was a game.
This is another one.
I didn't think the Eagles, we're gonna be able to win this even with a healthy Carson Wentz.
Obviously, Carson Lens gets taken out early, and I have a flight at 7 a.
m. and then school. After Miami.
Cain's production okay, Have a safe flight and I hope you enjoy school where you're going for school.
I'm assuming Miami, but you know, but anyways, the Seahawks.
Okay, where do you go for school? C Hawks Eagles game.
Seahawks won 17 to 9, and the Seahawks wasn't expecting the Eagles win.
Like I said after Carson Wentz gets injured, really no chance for them to win.
They kept it close, though.
The Eagles defense played really well.
I'm just not nearly as scared of playing the Seahawks as I am.
If the Packers were to play the Saints or the 40 Niners, and hopefully I don't regret saying that, hopefully, the Packers can win next week against the Seahawks.
Packers are favored by three and 1/2 points.
At least that was the opening line.
But give me a good game.
Give me some good games next week before you're on the basketball.
Miami Cain's production, saying they go to Miami for a vacation A lot.
I've never been Miami.
I'd like to go there and of South Beach is a lot of fun.
I'd love to see the Miami Heat game, dolphins and maybe in a few years when there should be good in a few years.
But okay, so you go to school in Chicago.
Where in Chicago, see, just interact with me.
Guys, ask some questions.
Whatever you guys want to talk about.
A happy to talk about.
But let's get going into the basketball side of things.
Um, just talking about David Stern really quickly before I get into the Lakers stuff.
I don't think words can really do justice to how much David Stern men to the game about thing.
For years, Byrne was the commissioner for the N B A.
For 11 years before I was born and for my entire childhood, he was the commissioner of the NBA.
And growing up, I didn't realize how important David Stern or ah, commissioner could be too a sport to a game, whether the basketball, football, whatever it may be growing up, I remember just always thinking on David.
Stern's gets booed when he announces draft picks on draft night, but he did so much for the N B A, and that's not to take away anything about just him as a person.
There's countless stories about what a great human being he is.
And aside from all of that, which is more important than anything he did for the game of basketball But speaking strictly for the game of basketball on what he was able to do when David Stern took over as commissioner of the n b a n b a Finals were on takeaway, and I think people here that, but it doesn't register with them enough toe wear.
I think of how unpopular something a sport needs to be.
Do not be broadcast live, I think.
Even when the Lakers were in the finals with Magic Johnson, even in L.
A. It was not televised life.
And that is crazy to me.
The fact that you wouldn't be able to seek the fact that if I was growing up in the eighties with the Showtime Lakers, who arguably are the most exciting team in the history of the N b A.
I would not be able to see them play in a championship game.
Live is crazy to have to stay up late at night when you can't record stuff, and you just have to stay up to tryto watch the game and see if they want There's no Twitter, no instagram, no act that I could go on no ESPN dot com to go see if the Lakers won or not.
You just have to wait and see if they end up winning the game or not.
Or turn on the news, I guess, later on at night, but just crazy and David Stern.
And he was able to do obviously getting finals onto more than more than just the finals being on live television.
But have this multibillion dollar sports league in the n b A and have it be, have basketball be an international game Back in the eighties, Yes, basketball was played outside of the U.
But was it seen as an international game? No, not close to it.
And David Stern Just what he was able to do with that playerssalaries, I think when he took over, then be an 84 average salary was, I think, 250,000 or so when he left N b A.
I think it was 5.
6 million or right around there, and the revenue that then be aided yearly went from I think it was 900 million or so when he took over in 84 to when he left right around the Haight was eight billion.
What is that? Almost a 10 x almost grow the NBA's revenue 10 times over the course of 30 years, you're doubling the NBA's right or no, I'm not great at maths.
I'm gonna hold off on that.
But just what he was able to do.
I don't think enough people realize how special it was to the game of basketball.
When I think of David Stern, I think of all that stuff, obviously, has a Laker fan.
I think of the botched Chris Paul trade and basketball reasons, and I was furious that David Stern understandably as you would expect the Lakers.
Same to be when that happened.
But he did so much great things for the N ba.
That was one thing that I don't even know if he wished that he could take back and any of the interviews he did.
After that, he never had any regret on how it ended up.
But either way, Aiken be upset that the Lakers didn't get Chris Paul.
But overall, David Stern over the 30 years that he was commissioner then be a did so many great things for the league.
There's just there's not enough that you can say about how much he meant to the game of basketball to get the n b a.
I mean, I feel like I am a part of the N B A.
Anyone who watches anyone who's a fan.
That's part of the MBA to get us to where we are now.
Just everyone who is involved in NBA needs to be eternally grateful to David Stern.
And I certainly am is a fan.
So I will move on from David Stern.
And that news is best I can to talk about the Lakers and their weekly roundup.
So they had let me you make sure not forgetting anything really quickly.
Three games for the Lakers this week.
They played the Phoenix Suns, won by a score of 1 17 on Friday, 1 23 2113 and then just about an hour ago, wrapped up eating the Pistons one of 6 to 99.
Yeah, I wish I could go back a few weeks toe where Lakers were about.
I was really happy and look, the Lakers won all three games.
Obviously, that is the most important thing.
But when they were 23 3 my biggest gripes were yes, there was still some rage on Rondo stuff that was creeping up, which has just gotten worse and worse.
And I'm sure you guys were tired of hearing me talk about that.
So I'm gonna try toe, not focus on that too much.
But other than that, I think the biggest thing I was complaining about was Frank Vogel's challenges and the way that he chose when to make his challenges, and that I thought he could probably do a better job of that.
But other than that, he had done a really phenomenal drop and he still done a very good job.
I think he should be right up there in the discussion for a coach of the year.
But there are some things, and this complaint isn't even too much to do with Frank Vogel.
As a coach, though, you do need to make sure that your team stays motivated and stays locked in throughout the whole 48 minutes.
The Lakers, in all three games this week and tonight against the Pistons, wasn't as drastic.
But in the 1st 2 games this week, especially against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday Oh, sorry about that.
But especially against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, Lakers got out to a really nice start and then just took their foot off the gas pedal and couldn't find the gas pedal again for the rest of the game against the Phoenix Suns.
They were up 42 to 13 in the first.
The first quarter they made their first, I think, is their 1st 12 shots of the game, which obviously that is more luck than effort.
Unless you're getting all lay ups and dunks, which the Lakers weren't they were just hitting all of their shots.
They started this new decade, 12 for 12 from the field.
So I really hope that's a sign of things to come in this decade.
But still, they got out to a 14 4 42 to 13 lead and the Phoenix Suns end up edging their way back to where they made it a single digit game in the fourth quarter.
Lakers were eventually able to stop the bleeding, ended up winning by 10 but that's one where the game against the Phoenix Suns and against in Orleans Pelicans.
So against the Pelicans, it wasn't as egregious as against the Phoenix Suns.
Just because they weren't up by as much, I think, actually think they were up thing.
That was like a 26 point lead.
Or so is the highest lead that the Lakers have against the Pelicans.
But that was in third quarter.
They're up by 26 against the Phoenix Suns and against the New Orleans Pelicans.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis should not have had to play in the fourth quarter.
Maybe against the Pelicans.
Look, they're up by 26 at one point of the third ended up being ahead at the end of the third by 22.
Maybe you could argue, LeBron James usually comes in to start the fourth quarter.
Maybe you could argue 22 points with 12 minutes left.
Not an insurmountable lead.
You should probably have your normal rotation still going and start the fourth.
But after three or four minutes, as long as you can even keep it right at 22 not necessarily even expand on the lead.
Your star players should be coming out, but especially against the Suns.
When you have 42 to 13 at the end of the first or not even at the end of the first quarter, near them to the first quarter, they were up, I think 34 in the third quarter and they gave us a LeBron James.
That should have been perfect game to arrest them, just get them.
I mean, they're dealing with some small, nagging injuries.
Anthony Davis seems to be dealing with some sort of an injury every single game, but that those were two games where you just could have gotten them.
Some really nice rest.
They don't want to say much needed because they've I mean, it was needed, but it's only they desperately needed them to rest.
But it's just those types of games where when you get off to that hot of a start, you need be able to close those games out without happening anything.
Davis and LeBron James on the court and the Lakers were unable to do that and either, obviously, in tonight's game, look, the Lakers got off to a really good start again.
They're up 15 to 2 on the Pistons actually had someone asked me if I thought the Pistons right, I had to separate.
People asked me if I thought the Lakers will be able to cover the 14 and 1/2 points, but I think it went down to 14 before the game, going up against the Piston scene without Blake Griffin without Luke Kennard and who else without Reggie Jackson? There was one other pretty good player for the Pistons, so they didn't know they were down four quality players and I still said No, I just I don't like betting double digit point spreads Anyways.
I tried to stay away from those and let's just completely obvious.
But this is one where Lakers sons and the Pelicans got off to a hot starts.
Energy dwindled and they let the teams back into it.
I just didn't have any confidence in this one.
And again, Lakers got off to a good start.
They were up 15 to 2.
They did end up getting 20 blocks as a team, which was really impressive.
It was they already had the season high this year out of all teams and then be a with 14 team blocks in the game.
They got 20 their franchise record for blocks in the game was 21 so they were really close to that.
Anthony Davis had eight blocks.
He had eight blocks like halfway through the third quarter.
Right? Think, or at least seven.
It looked like he was gonna get double digit blocks for a little while and have, ah, triple Double the Lakersfirst triple double involving 10 or more blocks since theseventies with Kareem, which would have been pretty cool to see.
But, um, yeah, it ended up not happening.
They didn't get the 21 blocks.
What's more important is they got the wind, but just a little bit of a trend setting in where they just aren't committing to giving 100% effort, not even throughout the whole game.
I would like to see all of the players do it, but LeBron James and Anthony Davis, that's the thing is, if they give maximum effort throughout the 1st 3/4 or so against these teams, they should be able to put these games away.
And this was one where I paused for a second because I didn't want to say and want it to seem like LeBron, 80 aren't giving a 1% effort When they're on the court, it's just overall.
The team is not and it usually starts with your leaders with their best players.
And I have noticed.
I think I've said this on a few different streams already that over the last month or so LeBron James defense has it started to dwindle, and now it's gotten back to not completely what it was last year.
But he is not trying nearly.
It's hard on the defensive end of the court.
That could be little nagging injuries or something.
It could be something with his growing.
There's been see, I hesitate to say as bad as it was last year because it's not there.
Still, there are spurts.
There are moments where he is locked in defensively and you see it.
He's moving really well and he's engaged defensively.
But then they're just a lot of other times where there was a play tonight against the Pistons, where LeBron James was guarding the weak side corner on an inbounds play and he was stuck ball washing.
He didn't care about his guy in the corner is guy in the corner.
I forgot who it was cut right to the basket right by LeBron James, and LeBron saw him.
But he was already a step late and he didn't even try.
He just let the guy catch it, go up for a dunk.
I think the Lakers were up by double digits at that point to where I'm kind of goes back to my point of just giving 100% effort, regardless of the score, so that you can sit out in the fourth quarter.
But, yeah, there's just something some little tendencies that I hope don't turn into habits and that the Lakers can fix.
They do have some easy ish games.
No game in the N B A is easy, but they are playing on some weaker opponents moving forward.
Obviously, Phoenix, New Orleans and Detroit are all no great teams, but pelicans have been rolling before the Lakers played them, they played the Knicks on Tuesday.
Then they play out Dallas, That'll be a really good game play at Oklahoma City.
Thunder have been on a roll.
As of late, they won nine other last 10.
Then they play at home against Cleveland and against the Magic.
Last time, the Lakers went up against some lesser teams for a few games in a row.
They started to build up some bad habits.
So that's the biggest thing I'm gonna be looking for is just seeing Can they just not have those bad habits build up again? Just keep doing what they should be doing.
Keep playing at a good level of intensity and just continue to win.
I mean, then of the day.
The most important thing is getting Winds Lakers still and knock on wood.
This continues throughout the entire season, but they haven't lost to a below 500 team.
And that's pretty tough to do because I know below 500 teams Lakers should be beating them, just like any good team should be.
But you always have a game or two where you just don't have it as a team and you drop those games that you should win.
The Lakers haven't dropped any games that they outright definitively should have one yet, and I'm hoping that continues throughout the season, because if that does, that just makes it that much more likely that the Lakers end up with the number one seed in the Western Conference which I've said before, and I still, I just I don't think that home court advantage is nearly as important for this Lakers team as it has been for Lakers.
Seems really any team.
In the past, Lakers have shown they're really good road team, and they're really experienced group of veteran guys.
Maybe for younger players like Kyle Kuzma, that might be a little bit more important.
Alex Caruso as well, maybe KCP, but I mean KCP.
He actually played better on the road than me.
That home playoffs are different animal, though.
Obviously, I would love for them to get the number one seed, but I don't think that there is nearly as much importance on that as there would be in a typical year for the Lakers.
And I'm just more concerned with.
They just need to get to the playoffs, and then as long as they're healthy, I will absolutely 100% take that.
I'll take their chances against anyone that pretty much does it for this week.
I could go into the rage on Rondo stuff again.
I'm still not happy with the amount of playing time that he is getting, although with Avery Bradley getting injured tonight against the Pistons.
Get a really bad ankle injury.
It looked really bad.
He turned it really far, and I'm not expecting him to be back anytime soon.
But we'll see what happens.
I do think that probably means more time for Rondo, but it also means the Lakers are going to probably be more desperate to find a backup point guard.
There's already been rumors Darren Collison is reportedly going to be deciding between the Clippers and the Lakers.
If he does end up making an MBA comeback, which it looks like he will, he would be incredible addition for the Lakers.
And I would be so happy because that would hopefully mean no more rage on Rondo.
Lakers are also interested in D.
J Augustine, which makes sense.
See someone who, if I had to guess, who would they be going after on the trade market? Even before these rumors popped up, I would have said you had D J.
Augustine definitely makes it come sense magic aren't playing as well as they were expecting to.
That may be looking to get rid of D.
Augustine, even though he is in the last year of his contract.
But it makes sense, so we'll see what happens.
Hopefully, before too long, the Lakers can get a quality backup point guard, so that rage on Rondo doesn't really have to play at all.
That would be the best thing, but we'll see.
So that's everything for tonight.
Thank you guys for tuning in.
