was good. Everybody, It's your boy.
What's popping? Laker Nation? That's your boy, baby Johnson here.
Welcome to the latest edition of the Big Baby John to sports podcast show and the Today show.
We'll be previewing Lakers versus Milwaukee for Friday and preview Lakers Clippers for Sunday.
Let's talk about the Lakers Milwaukee game for Friday.
My thoughts about that game right now, man, it's It's a must win because if we lose to, this team will be owing to first Milwaukee.
And I just feel like we need to come out to a better start and gonna be easy.
I like this game is gonna be was game.
We have to have 80 job, 40 points, 12 rebounds, seven blocks.
LeBron has had a triple double because compose averaging 26 points again.
Actually, excuse me.
6 points per game.
Shoots 55% from the field, 62% from free throw.
13 rebounds, almost 12 you know, I mean, and he is averaging five assists a game, which LeBron every 10 assists.
I mean, and it's gonna be a tough game.
Milwaukee scores about 119 points a game and opposing against like Milwaukee doesn't give up on Lee.
Gets up 106 a game, but Lakers score 114 give up under seven.
So it's gonna be a game where we need to, um, come in and play our best game of the season because last time you played in Milwaukee, we got beat, you know, it was back and forth and we made it's timely shots.
The bench from walking killed us with George Hill Korver.
You know? I mean, they came in and dominated us that game.
Did this thing in the post, and I want to see this team.
This Laker team come in really good on Friday, you know, play that defense that would normally like to play, rotate, play with that passion, you know, because yesterday against the 76 years we played horrible in the first quarter, then went on the 34 to 10 run to end the half, and we won the game.
But we can't be doing that all the time.
We can't be overboard against this team. Must turn up. Got it.
How we have to have a good start on Friday.
I mean, because it's Ah, this this is a potential N b A Finals matchup by here. Milwaukee.
But here's the thing.
I think I know how I think the lady could be Milwaukee.
Just trap Campo chap.
Um, if he forces out, Chris Milton scores.
Oh, well, you know, I mean, let the others try to beat you, not Coop.
Oh, you know, I mean, um, no, it's him. Did that. Miami.
Miami did that on Campo.
They forced the trap.
Them? They're playing tough defense on them in their forcing turnovers.
Skin on transition.
So Lakers should watch film on on Miami.
How do, um, contain couple soda? Toronto one had quite Leonard, you know? I mean, they contain them.
Um, they closed the lay there, like, Okay, you're not gonna just dribbles spin dunk wearing clothes, line shoot.
You know, I mean, his jumpers improving, but I think his ball handling skills a little bit little bit overrated.
No, I mean so what delayed you do is trap forced turnovers, do your thing that you normally do in each game and hopefully as crucial place.
So I could bring that spark, you know? I mean, so he could bring that spark that we need.
And I just want to see crews must step up.
He has to step up, man, because I feel like his scoring is starting to go down a little bit.
It's all in them.
It's It's a mind game right now for Kuzma.
I mean, he could get it together.
I thought you can get it together, but you just gonna have to Ah, just do a little thing.
I keep saying rotate like, rotate the basketball when he gets dealt with because they sometimes a Delta team.
But last night he struggled and know what six year did.
He was on the driven up the ball by himself.
Seven sisters. Okay, go ahead, Shoot.
Missed and put his head down.
Can't be doing that.
Crucial. If you missed shot, you just keep shooting, man.
Keep shooting, block everything out and play your game.
I know you have a great game in you this season.
Man is coming to man.
I'm telling you right now, who's gonna have a great game before the season's over? You know, I mean, but what the crazy thing is, Milwaukee is a great road team, 25 6 on the road.
That is unbelievable.
You know, Mike Budenholzer is a good coach over there.
Milwaukee man, you know? But here's a day quarter mind that play that game Friday or George Hill.
Or ask Caruso, so we'll see what the game is like on Friday.
But here's the thing for me, man.
Um, I mean Andy Davis to have a good game.
He's averaging 26 points per game, shooting 51% from the field and 84% from the free throw line.
5 rebounds a game, 7.
2 defensive rebound in the game and the broads at 10.
7 assists a game.
I need the bon two take over this game, too.
We need to have the same amount of winds as Milwaukee.
I thought we could catch Milwaukee.
Still, for that number one seed in the MBA? No, I mean off the button has to have one of those games where he did against the Pelicans with 40 points.
Duncan, you know, posting up spending, lay up.
Every player needs to do that against Milwaukee.
Like if he turns it up against Milwaukee he's gonna do is thank you know, I mean, appreciate the whistle.
Um, yeah, man, I just need LeBron to turn up on Friday.
Do is staying shoot from the Laker logo.
He has a different approach to the season, man.
He's more willing to play point guard.
I know he played point guard a lot during Cleveland money, but like bring the ball up more and Psycho's crazy may have the second team from last year to this year.
We have a whole different team and coaches.
Everything's just good enough for us.
Everything's going well.
We're 47 13 men were on three wins away for 50.
I'm excited, but that game for me man will walk his most important.
It's a must win for us, man.
We have to win on Friday in order to okay, Lakers beat Milwaukee with Kimble on everybody healthy.
But if we lose no, everyone's going to say in the media on the sports talk shows on radio, we can't be, but we can't even walk in the finals.
We can't that's what the problem is, say and they're gonna just throw negativity at LeBron like they always do.
They're just gonna be talking mess like they always do.
Do is come in Friday that hustle, grit, grind and just come in.
Lakers have beaten teams are playoff things, but I want to see us beat the teams that you need to be in order to be a champion team.
This is a chance to continue Team Lakers, Lakers. A champion team.
We're gonna win it all this year, but I want to see us.
I want to really want to see us play really good on Friday, you know, already want to see us play good Friday, you know? I mean, I just want to see us play good Friday.
I'm just excited for Friday.
It's gonna be a tough task, but I thought we could do a good job.
A DI in Campo First, each other's gonna be a good matchup.
Both come scorebook play defense.
I want to see 80 lock couple down, try to slow him down, you know, I mean, that matter Bayou slowed him down.
Do it to Eddie was everywhere last night against 76 years taking charges, blocking shots, rebound, taking rebounds away from six year players.
I need 80 to turn up like that on Friday, you know? I mean, they don't play until Friday.
So it's It's gonna be a game where we need to, uh, basically play the game of the year.
In my opinion, Duchess Me.
I'm gonna talk about the game from set for Sunday Clippers, Lakers.
My thoughts about that game.
We need to win that one as well, because we're all going to against Clippers.
We should be, too.
And one or two ago, we're up 10 in the first quarter. Gross Clippers.
And it was tied going into the fourth quarter against Clippers opening night.
And then on Christmas it was tied.
Going into the fourth quarter again, we got cold.
I want to see us come out.
Play interested? Don't be lackadaisical on defense because if you play like the days calling this Clipper team, they could punch you in the mouth.
And we don't want that.
You know that talented players over their monstrous Harold Lou Williams jubak Paul, George Cooper, Leonard Markieff, Morris, Reggie Jackson.
They are a bunch of players of the competing highest level, but for me, LeBron has to turn it up against quality.
He needs to say, Okay, you're talking about that noise.
Me just a 50 40 piece on you.
Triple double, let's go home. Let's win this game.
I need LeBron to turn up and he did. He turn up.
Sunday is basically this.
This game right here on Sunday is a potential Western Conference Finals preview, so I think it's gonna happen.
Um, keep a riel, probably, but you never know.
So you never know what could happen.
Rockets can upset the Clippers in the second round.
They could get beat in the first round.
That's how it is in the place you expect.
Oh, these two teams are planning the once Congress finally, the finals and the team that you don't expect to win the series beats the team that you beat the Clippers and the next round they lose.
So it's kind of envious that you can win in this league any type of way.
You know so clip.
The Lakers need to go in the post. Get 80 going.
No, on Clippers.
Come guard 89 Montrose Harold.
Not Markieff Morris.
Not Kawai Letter and not pull.
Not do about anybody on the Clippers.
So 80 needs to drop at least dirty.
Five points, 12 rebounds, Seven blocks.
Needs to be that dominant force that he's always been a race, you know.
And when he gets the playoffs, he shrinks.
30 points on, 50% shooting the place.
That team they had him on the Pelicans was garbage.
You know, I know he beat Portland, but the next series he got slipped by the Golden State Warriors.
But here's what I'm trying to say.
Oh, appreciate joining the broadcast, man.
Um, yeah, that's serious.
That he got so bad he was dominating that Siri's, you know, he's a dominant big man and I need him to dominate whoever's in his way.
I wanted to go spend between the legs and one that he did against Philly last night.
I want to see him dominate.
I want to see this anti Davis yelling and screaming Barker shot.
So I want to see us getting excited.
No, but then today it's gonna be competitive match up, but nothing lives going.
Beat the Clippers? Hell, yeah.
I think we're gonna be the Clippers.
We'll beat the L. A. Clippers on Sunday.
You can hear, hear? First, we're gonna win, you know? I mean, it's crazy.
So it's just It's just crazy how the media just loves, like, just braves about the Clippers.
They're talented team by Flood to have flaws, you know? I mean, there's nights where the Clippers don't perform well and the media hides from that all.
They have a good game, although just resting for the playoffs.
But when the Lakers have better game Oh, they're not champs of Bread either this and that.
Come on, man, don't we want to hear that? Criticize the Clippers like you do The Lakers people on Speak for yourself on with Marcellus, Wiley and ah, Jason Whitlock.
They always be talking the most.
Marcellus Wiley follows me on Twitter, man, but he'll be He'll be talking some nonsense, the same narrative.
Oh, Lakers legislators that But you can't go 24 hours, 72 hours without talking about the the L A.
What? Come on now, I'll bet you any day of the week they won't be able to Osama Clipper dough, you know, get out of L.
Go back to San Diego.
But, like I just if he hears a thing, if we lose to the Clippers, we're going to right now.
And if we lose and get if you lose on Sunday will be only three.
And we got another one in April.
If you go on four against them.
Well, I'd be worried if you're going for against Clippers. No.
And you know why? Because the year that the Lakers lost, they were trying to three peat, 2011 when they want change of a 2010 we beat the Dallas Mavericks.
We swept him in the in the regular season, and when it came the playoffs, we got swept 40 So it's a different type of playoff.
When it comes to play off, regular season teams play different.
Different schemes are thrown out there.
So don't always all.
We lost the Clippers three times in a row.
Can we beat them in the playoffs, man.
LeBron gonna turn up in place.
The bombs will have a great playoffs.
I'm telling you guys right now, the bronze won't have a classic playoff.
This Laker team is on some special men, I'm telling you.
And, uh, when you see this Laker team click were fun to watch, you know? I mean, it's just crazy how this Laker team is gonna show everybody what were champions, Man.
The broad's gonna turn out, and I just wanna win championship.
You know, I'll miss any of the young core I'm glad they're doing here, man.
I tell you guys something like a nation.
People listen to me, SportsCastr.
Live in and grab.
Um, I don't miss the young core I owe Miss Long's Autumn is burning rum Josh Hart, you know, or do buck or laying ants or Jordan Clarkson because we got anything.
Davis, you know, I'm over the young court to stop bringing up the young core to me.
You know they're doing good in the pelicans.
They're doing good salute to you guys. You having a great season.
But we have Anthony Davis.
If if they play like anti.
Davis comes on table every time and I have a good young essence.
I'm trading away every every young asset friend.
It is 10 minutes in.
Anthony Davis is dominant.
Post up. Fade away.
Dunk, block shots.
He's everywhere on the court, you know? I mean, he could bring the ball up.
He has ball handling skills.
So it's just we gotta get going with him.
You know, I'm in a raise asking on Twitter.
Go follow me on Twitter.
Big Baby Johnson if you haven't already But if you do go for me there, um, people on Twitter, the trolls on Twitter would be like all that today is going to Chicago.
You really think any day's gonna go? The Chicago Bulls was Zach Levine market in and Kobe White over LeBron James Chicago Lakers Chicago Lakers 80 zone Stay.
Man is just all speculation.
Rich Paul didn't do the right thing for him.
Um, like you're gonna do the right thing.
They're going to give him probably max contract.
You know, it's just he ain't leaving Lakers he and leaving like I'm telling you that right now he's not leaving L A.
You know, So what we need to do is when I guarantee if we win championship, you're gonna see the next day resettlement the Lakers, You know, here's the thing.
If he didn't run, if he didn't, if he said I'm not gonna re signed, I would I was the Lakers training until I get value.
But he's, um talkto Lakers after the season, he may take a meeting. He may not.
Who knows what eighties gonna do in the summer.
But then the day he's gonna resolve the Lakers, I'm excited for that.
