And let's see now should be entering any minutes.
What's up? Thank 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.
It seems like right now everybody is trying to get some run.
I might even send out a tweet to LeBron and say amen.
And if Avery Bradley is out, You know, I could get some minutes as well.
I working out with my daughter.
You know, I've been running suicides, getting in shape.
I might have to let him normal, Man.
It's getting interesting, though.
So what do you think about swaggy P? I think the last team we saw swaggy p play four was Ah, the Warriors.
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? Familiar? He's familiar with the lake, Maybe not as familiar with LeBron James.
But you know what he played with Kobe and Kobe is as intense as they come.
No, so he could probably play with LeBron James.
Matter of fact, you know what I'm looking at him and J.
Smith style of game that swaggy p please.
Maybe it fits LeBron James a little bit better, J.
Smith, but of course, J. R. Smith is really familiar with LeBron.
I haven't played with him.
Clean won a championship with me.
You know? I guess it all comes down to, you know, Has he been playing ball since he's played? Played with Denver 2018 19 as he played ball anyplace else with your overseas? I don't know if he was overseas, he might have had some running some little leagues and little pickup games.
I know he does a podcast and he's been doing some entertainment than type stuff maybe standing in in shape.
But, I mean, I want to say he's ready.
I'm trying to find the name of his podcast of certified buckets.
He does a podcast called Certified Buckets with, um, a couple other people.
And I think that's his main, you know, 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 if 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 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.
The one thing I will say is, and of course, this is the NBA's.
So it's you got a top seed, but he has.
The kind of bar is has a very slender but right 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 for pickup ball, um, or in college.
But it wasn't hard for me to get back in shape when I was no, a lot more slender.
I haven't seen him lately, but, you know, just looking at his body type did a little bit to stay in shape.
I was expecting to get a whole lot of minutes and probably about things, you know.
So you know, they need someone to come in to try to knock down a couple of threes, play a lot off the ball.
You know, I'm thinking what may be 7 to 10 minutes per game.
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 toe Phil. Minutes.
They're gonna be looked at to be bought these.
They're 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 wanna 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.
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 will be four minutes.
But when I saw this like I said, I think it was just a social media thing.
He comments, you know, What was your saying? It's committed to my legs, teammates and 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 you 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. Everything.
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 to to Do.
And now everybody's talking swaggy p right.
That same thing happened when Bear Davis a couple weeks ago, when he said he is ready to take over to be the coach.
You know, 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 him doing in exhaust, you know, coaching service, right.
But you have coaches.
They they've only been assist.
Young coaches only been, you got veteran coaches like Tom Thibodeau.
I just want to know where you're going.
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 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 the nose 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.
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 guy and he killed.
I said I wouldn't mind working with this listed guy, so they go out when they're interviewing those guys as well, you know, to see, I mean, if they would be willing to come to the Knicks or, you know, be like and then if one of them kind of blows him away, Maybe that's a take a flier on this guy.
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 to develop some of the young guys like it could happen.
Kenny, you know your head coaching job, but he's gonna be looking to stay in the league and 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 cultural move.
That was a move toe some of the hip hop heads that know the name and, uh, 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 summertime.
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.
Yeah, all right, man.
Thanks for joining me.
I don't mean to cut you all.
I was just gonna 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.
But, you know, we're gonna have to MBA.
It's going to be something new, so there's gonna be a lot of people July 31st.
That's when training can 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's enough time for guys.
Teoh Quarantine beat the Corona virus, make their decisions and we're all finding out, you know, this week.
