My Lakers didn't get quiet.
I was a little worried if we didn't get quiet, how we would react how we respond, especially based on the the last few years what we've done.
Um, this year I was very, very happy.
I think under circumstances that we were we were dealt, you know, having a weight, you know, four weeks into free agency for Kawai, Leonard to make a decision.
I think we did a phenomenal job of picking up guys that compliment a D and LeBron incredibly well.
I was very excited to keep Rondo in his veteran leadership and playoff experience and his relationship with 80 and boogie.
You know, them having their best seasons while while he was at the at the helm.
You know, running a point in New Orleans.
I think that's a huge deal.
Um, who's gonna play P.
D? You know, I wouldn't mind Raja starting starting point guard.
Honestly, you know, it's about floor spacing and everything.
So obviously you would want Avery Bradley or are even Caruso to maybe maybe start if you just wanna line up of shooters around the broad in a d.
But in terms of just running the offensive facilitating and the way he needs.
I think Rondo does a great job.
Um, I also think that I'm the guys they picked up on the bench where were phenomenal.
Quinn Cook was a great addition.
Um, I think that Avery Bradley, I thought, was a huge addition.
A lot of people have mixed feelings about him and how he's played.
You know how he's played last few sees.
But, you know, I think he has that pedigree and that defensive mindset of just dulled, you know, unselfish on offense just takes years within, scheming the offense with the flow.
Um, I also liked the boogie pick up and and obviously bringing travail back huge.
Well, Westbrook and hard work out.
That's that's gonna be tough.
I mean, that's going to be interesting.
If it does work, you know, then it'll be also, you know, I didn't know if CP three I mean, CB three and James Harden work, but it did, uh, back to the Lakers, man, I think this is our year.
Obviously, I think it's gonna take the entire season for them to jail and for them to come together and and really maneuver like they show it, But, um, I think this is great.
I don't I don't feel the same way about the clippers like everybody else does.
You can't just got quiet.
PG That there. Oh, my God.
They're front runners.
I I just don't see enough from everybody else.
You know, if you if you criticize him like you do the Lakers in your past, critical.
You look at that roster outside of the bench of Lou Williams, and you'd have a lot of questions outside of quiet.
You know, where's the shooting was their offense if they're gonna be phenomenal on defense.
But if there's, you know, they play the Lakers and the Lakers play Big boy ball on Billy, What's gonna be? It's gonna be tough.
Um, that's all I got to say, man.
I think I think we got it.
I think that's a chance.
I'm happy, you know, we were outside of the youth error of the Lakers.
You know, I didn't feel good about that from the beginning, You know, in time we're talking more than you talk about production.
It's a bad business, but happy where we are now.
Late show, but doubled round, though
