What's ah Simeon Russell Toe.
Now Stimuli is a basketball fan, specifically a Knicks fan, And I'm sure he's someone I can speak to this swaggy p stuff.
This Lakers the, uh, swaggy p.
You know of what Swaggy P is out there? He's been trying to get back in and to the league for some time.
It seems, um, swaggy p former Laker.
He's got that iconic miss that iconic and then rattles out, but maybe he'll run it back.
The Lakers already have Dion waiters.
They're flirting with the idea of picking up J.
Smith if they go ahead and bring in Nick Young swaggy p.
How could you not root for these guys? How could you not route for the Lakers to take the whole thing? Now I think LeBron has a good shot.
Magic Johnson does not, he says.
With the departure of Avery Bradley, it is going to be that much tougher for the Lakers to win.
But now it seems people are coming out of wood works to replace Avery Bradley, so frightened.
I, um, I think LeBron has a great shock, Irwin it, no matter who is on its team cause he's LeBron.
This is the King is the goat, and then a d Ah, there's a whole another level of playoff basketball, but there's a whole another, deeper level here because this is playoff basketball, that that's not sold out.
This is playoff basketball.
That's not in front of a crowd.
This is playoff practice.
Essentially, this is gonna be practice runs at a playoff level.
Ah, playoff level in Orlando.
Like something we've never seen with the Corona virus hanging over everyone's head with racial tension, social injustice, equality hanging over, everyone said, um, it's gonna be an interesting time.
It's American history of sports history.
And ah, I think we got somebody knocking, coming, knock on my door.
Simeon Russell entered the chat invites, and let's see now.
Should be entering any minutes.
One to three. There he is.
What's up, man? Can you hear me? How you feeling? I'm good.
I'm good talking about swaggy P and the Lakers out here a little bit, you know? What do you thought so far? Right.
I know you saw this article.
I know you saw swaggy P is out there.
But we also talked earlier about J.
R. Smith trying to get back in the mix.
We know the Lakers got ah Dion waiters.
Seems like right now everybody is trying to get some run.
I might even send out a tweet to LeBron and say, Hey, man, if Avery Bradley is out, you know, I can get some minutes as well.
I have to do the same thing working out with my daughter.
You know, I've been running suicides, getting in shape.
I might have to let him know.
Man, It's getting interesting, though.
So what do you think about swaggy P? I think the last team we saw swaggy P play for was Ah, the Warriors.
Yeah, you want? No, he was went on. He was with Denver.
He was with, Ah, he was with Denver.
But he did get that run with the Warriors a year they wanted in 2018 2019 years with Denver.
But he played four years with the Lakers.
So there's some familiarity there, right? This a familiar he's familiar with the Lakers, maybe not as familiar with LeBron James.
But you know what? He played with Kobe and you know, Kobe is as intense as they come, you know, So he could probably play with LeBron James.
Matter of fact, you know, when I'm looking at him and J.
Smith style of game that swaggy p please, maybe if it's LeBron James a little bit better.
But of course, J.
R. Smith is really familiar with LeBron.
Haven't played with him in Cleveland.
Won a championship with Cleveland.
No, I guess it all comes down to, you know.
Has he been playing ball since he's played? Is he played with Denver in 2018 19 as he played ball anyplace else with your overseas anywhere.
I don't know if he was overseas, he might have had some running some Little League, some little pickup games.
I know he does a podcast, and he's been doing some entertainment and type stuff.
Maybe standing in in shape, Um, maybe not.
But I mean, I want to say he's ready.
I'm trying to find the name of his podcasts of certified buckets.
He does a podcast called Certified Buckets with, um, a couple other people, and I think that's his main focus, or where you see him at? Um, we already know about his his history with Gilbert Arenas.
I really couldn't tell you.
I haven't seen a viral video or a clip of him who pit and, um, it might be this might be more of a social media play for him than an actual reality.
Smith has been working out. We've seen the videos of him.
Obviously, they signed Dion waiters, Dion waiters was with the heat.
I don't think swaggy.
He really has a shot to join the Lakers here.
Everyone saying Jr is the number one candidate.
Um, what do you think about Nick Nick Lungs, Legs? Or I guess it is endurance or his.
His fitness for being ready to actually come back to the lead right now.
Yeah, and that's the thing.
It's hard to say if he's been working out staying in shape.
The one thing I will say is, and of course, this is the N B A.
So it's you got a couple tiptop seat, but he has the kind of bar is has a very slender body, right, which when I used to be a little more slender.
It wasn't hard for me to get back into shape, but of course, I wasn't playing on an MBA level, right? I'm just playing streetball pickup ball, um, or in college.
But it wasn't hard for me to get back in shape when I was, you know, a lot more slender.
I haven't seen him lately, but, you know, just looking at his body type.
He did a little bit to stay in shape.
I was expecting to get a whole lot of minutes and probably just do some spot about things.
You know, uh, you know, they need someone to come in and try to knock down a couple of threes, you know, play a lot off the ball.
You know, I'm thinking what? Maybe he gets 7 to 10 minutes per game.
Yeah, Yeah, that's the thing to these guys.
These like, replacement or filler? Guys, they're not going to be looked at to start and play the role of an Avery Bradley.
They're gonna be looked at to fill minutes.
They're gonna be looked at to be bought, but he's gonna be looked at to come to Orlando and get run in those ramp of games or even in those first couple of rounds where they want to sit a d.
They're definitely gonna want to sit the king down.
They're gonna want a rest.
LeBron LeBron is getting up there.
Have you seen him in quarantine? He's got the beard with the greys coming in like, uh, they're gonna want to sit.
LeBron, um, they're gonna wanna give him some rest.
So they need bodies, they need guys.
I can play a lot of minutes or not even a lot of minutes, but like, collect these minutes.
So if they do take a flyer on swaggy P, I guess it would be four minutes.
But when I saw this like I said, I think it was just a social media thing.
Ah, he commented on ah, woes posts where? You know, what was your sitting has committed to my Lakers teammates in the organization as I am was quote from Bradley, Avery Bradley.
He said I ultimately played basketball for my family.
We know about his son, and now his son has a health issue where he wouldn't have been cleared to join.
Um, them in Orlando would have been safe for his son with a respiratory issue.
And so ex swaggy p comments.
I'm ready in these current times were in the Internet, reads in tow.
And I mean, once upon a time you would have to have ah, Riel interview with a reporter that would have to be written in the newspaper to make headline news or to even be a conversation amongst fans.
Now all it takes is one little comment from his phone due to Duke.
I'm ready and our vice talking swaggy p right.
Exact Same thing happened when Bear David's a couple weeks ago, when he said that he's ready to take over to be the coach of the Knicks.
You just just I I think we got enough.
I think we got enough coaching candidates.
I'm sure you could speak that.
I think we got enough coaching candidates in the running for the Knicks.
I mean, I've seen 10 names on a list.
Here's the thing.
I don't mind doing an exhaustive, you know, coaching service, right? But you have coaches who they they've only been assist.
Young coaches only been assistance.
You got veteran coaches like Tom Thibodeau.
I just want to know where you're going? Yeah, I was just about to say, Do you think the strategy is to get a full canvas of what's out there and compare each individual to each of individual? And it's like, Okay, if if we take a full look at 10 different guys, we're gonna know which guys stand out, maybe we can narrow it down to a top tour or three.
And then those of you guys have picked from, but you won't know unless you hear everybody out.
You sit with everybody and you see what the full like coaching landscape looks like for potential head coaches for the Knicks.
Yeah, I think that's part.
I think that's a big part of it.
And then also, you know, just looking at potential assistant coaches.
You know, it's really putting together a team like, let's say, maybe Tom Thibodeau is the front runner and he said, You know what? I wouldn't mind working with this list of guy, and he came back unseen.
I said I wouldn't mind working with this listed guys, and so they go out on their interviewing those guys as well.
I mean, if they would be willing to come to the Knicks or you know what it would be like And then if one of them kind of blows him away.
Maybe that's a take a flier on these guys.
That's the first time I've thought about, like any actress in taking an assistant coach role may be under like a Tom Thibodeau and working developed some of the young guys like it could happen.
Kenny, you know Kenny is gonna be looking for a job.
It might not be a head coaching job, but he's gonna be looking to stay in the league and he's a good coach.
He deserves to be in the league.
But that's the first time I thought about that.
Like maybe the Knicks are looking at all these guys.
And they're not just looking to fill one head coach as the spot may be looking to get a head coach and a good assistant coach that has the experience of a head coach or could potentially be a head coach somewhere else.
They're trying to really get in.
I mean, I like the moves that I'm seeing with World Wide West move.
I think that was just a little cultural move.
That was a move toe, you know, kind of grab some of the fans back some of the hip hop heads that know the name and, ah, you know, try and make a cultural move.
That's gonna, you know, play well in in New York City and in, Ah, the online community.
But, um, you will see, man, MBA is getting real interesting.
We got a lot of news.
We got a lot of different things popping up.
As we get closer to the return getting closer to this bubble, I'm sure you'll be on here tonight and the next couple of nights I'm getting back into it.
I feel that energy coming back.
Everybody's talking about the N B A.
Now who's in? Who's out and, ah, managed is a good time.
It's the summer that we never experienced.
You know, the league will be done this late in June and the, you know, now we're just revving up to come back.
So I'm I'm enjoying that aspect of it.
All right, man, Thanks for joining me.
I don't mean to cut you off.
I was just going to say it would have been, you know, is July.
We would have been in, like, summer league right now, right? We would have watching the young guys get ready to ramp up for summer league after the draft and everything.
But, you know, we're gonna have the n b. A.
Is going to be something new, so there's gonna be a lot of people.
Why July 31st? That's when training can't begin.
So they didn't training camp about three weeks.
Maybe it's enough time for Nick Young and those guys to get in shape.
Yeah, there's enough time for guys to get in shape.
There is enough time for guys.
Teoh Quarantine beat the Corona virus, make their decisions.
And we're all finding out.
You know, this week, who's in? Who's out looking forward and looking forward to it and looking forward to cover in the right here on sportscast.
