00:00:14
Good morning, everybody.
00:00:17
So today, uh, is really a history shifting day for the Los Angeles Lakers? Hey, look at us.
00:00:27
Hey, E.
00:00:29
Good chance.
00:00:30
If you're telling me that LeBron James has Anthony Davis available to him Excuse me.
00:00:35
I'm rolling with the Lakers to win the title.
00:00:37
Look at us.
00:00:38
Who would have thought? Not may.
00:00:41
First of many, baby.
00:00:43
What was he doing with coffee with e e? Tell you way All get a, probably tell you.
00:00:58
Hey, guys, Walk to the late night Lake Show Podcast is powered by crossover media.
00:01:03
This is your host, Ricky and Kwamie.
00:01:06
We come to you guys on the Lakers pregame show.
00:01:10
I had a Game four between the Denver Nuggets and R L A Lakers. Kwamie.
00:01:16
We come up to one in the Siri's right now.
00:01:20
And, you know, by the way, timelines air looking, some Lakers fans talk.
00:01:26
You would think it's, you know, a to to Siri's man.
00:01:28
How you feeling? Are you okay? Are you doing all right? Yeah, man.
00:01:32
I mean, we lost one game.
00:01:33
We lost one game last Siris in the Siri's before.
00:01:36
I mean, we're 10 and three in the postseason.
00:01:37
Cut us some slack here.
00:01:39
I mean, the madness that happens every time the Lakers loses too much from the media.
00:01:45
And it's even from both sides, fans and enemies alike.
00:01:48
So, you know, we're gonna right the ship tonight, though.
00:01:50
I'm confident that.
00:01:52
Amen, brother.
00:01:53
Yeah, tonight could have been, you know, a special evening.
00:01:57
Maybe it was whoever tweeted it out from the late night Lakers or Twitter account that tonight would be a special evening.
00:02:04
Nonetheless, the Denver Nuggets spoiled theon paternity for the Lakers to go for the sweep by defeating them last game.
00:02:11
And it was really, uh, and everything for the Lakers.
00:02:15
Right way.
00:02:16
Watch them for really three quarters, kind of just chug along and kind of just be there and beyond the basketball court, but not really engaged.
00:02:25
You know, LeBron was LeBron ends up with a triple double.
00:02:29
Did it feel like LeBron had a triple double? Right.
00:02:32
Anthony Davis had clearly some some lack of production on the rebounding tip.
00:02:40
We got vin a coming on a little bit later on the show to give us a little bit of perspective on that, but really quantum.
00:02:47
Just give me your thoughts the first of all.
00:02:48
Let's let's start with last game, right? What did you absolutely not like And what can happen in Game four that happened in Game three? Honestly, I just I didn't like our energy.
00:03:00
I feel like we came out sluggish.
00:03:01
And once Denver really started rolling, we just kind of kept going through the motions.
00:03:05
That really picked up the intensity until essentially Dwight Howard came in, he offered a short spark, but then he was getting in foul trouble.
00:03:13
And that's what we call that acted too crazy.
00:03:16
So then the fun the energy drop.
00:03:19
Um, but honestly, that's one of the things our role players didn't really play that great.
00:03:24
They kind of reverted back to their early bubble forms where they just kinda, you know, they weren't too efficient, you know, had a few missed aches on, but also our stars, you know, even though they're stat lines, looked okay, They didn't play great.
00:03:37
You know, LeBron was fumbling the ball the whole first half, just donating it away, left and right.
00:03:42
Anthony Davis couldn't grab a rebound if they put a gun to his head and said, grab one.
00:03:46
So you know things like that.
00:03:48
Defense of energy was bad.
00:03:50
We're lazy with it.
00:03:51
It never really got great until we had that spurt in the fourth where you saw we kicked up the defensive intensity.
00:03:56
We literally destroyed a 20 point lead down down to three in about four minutes.
00:04:01
You know, so we the potential is there.
00:04:04
But that energy just gotta stay up the entire time.
00:04:07
You know, I heard some excuses about us being tired.
00:04:09
I mean, I get it.
00:04:10
We're not the youngest team in the league, but we've had we've had the most rest.
00:04:14
We've only We've had huge gaps in between Siri's, Denver's come out to seven games.
00:04:20
Siri's, you know, essentially one day of rest between their Siri's.
00:04:24
Come on, I get it.
00:04:25
They're younger, a little bit more spry.
00:04:27
They're the underdogs.
00:04:28
But I don't expect us to have the same output performance.
00:04:32
And I think honestly, the laws might not have been a bad thing. It was nice.
00:04:35
It was a nice punch in the face and, you know, hopefully wakes our team up.
00:04:37
But for the things that I think that can't happen in this next game, especially is we need to defend without fouling.
00:04:44
Denver was sitting in the bonus about halfway through every single quarter.
00:04:49
When that happens, you can't play the defense you want because you're concerned about filing and just sending him to the line.
00:04:54
It's really hard to come back from a deficit when you can't guard because you're sending people to the line, every single possession.
00:05:00
So we saw in the fourth when we had I mean, they want the bonus in the third quarter, like nine minutes left in the quarter, three minutes in the bonus.
00:05:08
That's awful.
00:05:09
That cannot happen, absolutely cannot happen, moving forward.
00:05:11
But, um, like I said, I think as long we just need to pick up the defensive intensity and try to defend without fouling.
00:05:18
And I think you know, everybody will show up with, you know, a bit of reinvigoration and get ready to go for a game forward.
00:05:24
All right, way like re vig, aerated Lakers.
00:05:27
I agree with the point, right? Kwamie like it's sometimes nice to see a little bit of the adversity.
00:05:33
You know, the Lakers, I guess, didn't haven't necessarily got their ass kicked in the playoffs yet.
00:05:39
Right in that game for the most part was not within reach until the Lakers did that nice little run in the fourth quarter.
00:05:48
That run, right? You watch basketball long enough, right? You know, pretty early on when your team doesn't have it.
00:05:57
Then you watch them, you know, jag along for three quarters.
00:06:02
Get to the fourth quarter, turn on all the burners and you're watching them just flame through the opponent and it's almost like, bro.
00:06:10
Well, just just take the hell, like at this point, right? Like, now you're showing that you definitely packed it in the first three quarters, and now you're wasting your entire energy.
00:06:20
Probably gonna come up short right at the end, and the Lakers end up doing it.
00:06:24
There were some timely miss shots and we'll talk about the others were gonna bring our boy nods on it a couple of minutes here to talk about what the others need to do in this game for, But I mean, to me, it was just a a in effect and the aftermath of the Lakers handling their business in game one, coming back and starving off, come back by the Nuggets in Game two thinking Wow, we took their best shot, and then we still beat them on the 80 buzzer beater, right? They have to be demoralized and compound that with Dwight Howard and Javale McGee.
00:07:07
Think that they're the bash.
00:07:08
Breaux's like This is D three Mighty Ducks.
00:07:11
And there's, you know, I'm not really into the spirits and mystical beings, but, like Venus said, numerous of times, you don't wanna mess with the basketball gods.
00:07:21
Their sports, God's whatever you wanna call it, is just a deviation of karma.
00:07:25
You don't want to get too far.
00:07:27
On one side, we saw how the flippers did, talking all that **** from the sidelines and like we saw like we talked about me and Danny talked about on our last podcast episode, was You don't want to be the one that's talking all the ****, but you're not the one backing it up on the other end.
00:07:45
We love us some Dwight Howard, right? We like aggressive Dwight.
00:07:49
We like the intensity that he's bringing.
00:07:51
But Dwight Howard, coming into the game picking up a foul, picking up a technical, realizing that I need to cool it down a little bit, almost getting tossed out the game after a report by Chris Haynes that came out after Game three and then yes, the right decision.
00:08:07
Start him in the second half, right when he do since the third starts picks up another foul, it's, Ah, balance between being aggressive, being a dog, not being a dumb ass and not being a jackass, Right? Dwight likes to walk that fine line.
00:08:27
He has his whole career.
00:08:28
I personally prefer shellshock Dwight Howard like we had him in the beginning of the year.
00:08:33
We're trying to seem like he just had black around his eyes and wasn't blinking right.
00:08:37
I like humbles and garden Dwight over.
00:08:40
I'm about toe talk to Joe Kage 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
00:08:45
But hey, do you dog? My thing is, just you have to be productive and I don't know if the Dwight starting tonight.
00:08:53
I haven't seen if the rosters lineup that come out, but I think my main point is right.
00:08:59
There needs to be a balance between the Lakers aggression stepping up to the plate and actually put in the effort in their encore performance up against right, trying to intimidate the Nuggets Joke.
00:09:12
It just certified right that that boy is code, right? He's hitting some of these spinney cycle turnaround floaters on eighties had, it's like, All right, uh, that's yours, right? But there there still has to be a level of physicality that the reps need to let the Lakers bigs.
00:09:34
Um, you know, ah, force upon joke it and I won't even necessarily get in the way.
00:09:39
We'll bring Nas in in a second and let him talk.
00:09:42
Thio, JaVale McGee.
00:09:45
And but it's really going to come down to specific key contributors rising to the level of their expectations right while keeping their heads.
00:09:57
E think that's fair.
00:09:59
I think that's what absolutely needs to happen.
00:10:02
Is Faras Game three to Game four, and it's not like we're asking for too much.
00:10:08
That was Dwight the whole season, you know, basically, the way we think about it, we think about it as bad as they played.
00:10:16
We had.
00:10:17
We were right there.
00:10:18
We were literally on the doorstep is awful.
00:10:20
Is we played? We probably played R D plus game that we had it within three with about six minutes to go in the fourth quarter, but then we couldn't score for about four minutes and then, you know, we know the history after that, Jamal Murray stepped up a little bit, but come on, man.
00:10:33
It's stuff like that that, you know, we we we should know better.
00:10:37
Being a veteran team, we have a veteran team, guys that have, you know, made deep playoff runs before.
00:10:44
We're not going to scare the Nuggets.
00:10:45
The Nuggets are gonna get scared.
00:10:47
So, um, you know, talking crazy to Yokich.
00:10:50
I'm telling you, these Serbians, this is the breakout for them, you know, you got you got dragging.
00:10:54
You got Don **** you got Yokich.
00:10:56
These guys have been absolutely bawling in this bubble, and you don't It might not, Then, because next round we might see another.
00:11:03
We're probably going to see another one.
00:11:05
So we better get We better get on board with the with the train of those guys, but, um, yeah, like you said, I think it's just really players need to play to their expectations and, you know, just keep their head on straight and stop playing.
00:11:18
Stop over doing it.
00:11:19
I get I get Dwight.
00:11:20
Big thing was, he wanted to be like the Draymond of a team, you know? But you know, Dre, Mom was calculated with his trash talk, calculated with his aggression, White and even Draymond stepped over the line, right? And this prime Draymond green at the top of his defensive, you know, platform.
00:11:38
Yeah, right. Abilities.
00:11:40
Thank you, Dwight.
00:11:42
Still a good, good, solid defensive player, but a step slower than he used to be.
00:11:46
Oh, we're not asking for too much, but it's like bruh understand that joke.
00:11:52
It's probably gonna get you into foul trouble one way or the other.
00:11:55
So you know, you might want to conserve some of that.
00:11:57
Give me the app for defensive stance.
00:12:00
Let's, uh let's get Nas in here.
00:12:03
We got a We talked a little bit about Dwight Howard.
00:12:07
We talked a little bit about some of the Lakers lack of effort.
00:12:11
Nas my brother What the Davis killed? What are we going todo about? The rest off the Lakers supporting cast? How do we get them to rise to the occasion? First of all, just one of your thoughts on who has been stepping up and who needs to step the **** up as faras outside of our superstars.
00:12:38
Uh the guy who's really stepped up eyes.
00:12:41
The convict, I mean, Casey.
00:12:43
Yeah.
00:12:44
Casey really stepped up, man.
00:12:47
Like that guy has, I think, shooting If I'm not mistaken.
00:12:50
Like, I think he's shooting 60% from three.
00:12:55
No, no, no, that's not right.
00:12:56
Like, hey, 60 60% in this. In this.
00:13:00
In this, in this Siri's overall.
00:13:03
And, like, 40 plus 40 plus percent from three.
00:13:07
If I'm not mistaken, right? Uh, yeah.
00:13:11
58% field goal shooting and 53% from three big boy numbers from K C P U.
00:13:17
You hit the nail on the head there.
00:13:20
Okay.
00:13:21
I thought it was, like missing something, you know, Like like 40% was too low for him.
00:13:26
Reason, right? Yeah, he stepped up.
00:13:29
Uh, Rondo.
00:13:32
I mean, he's had some.
00:13:34
His last game wasn't the best, but I don't think we win the Rockets.
00:13:39
Siri's without him Like a zoo.
00:13:42
Much maligned as he's been, he's been without him on him being disruptive and his and his just his general great playoff.
00:13:54
Q.
00:13:55
We I don't think we win the rocket series without him.
00:13:58
Uh, Caruso's.
00:14:00
Obviously, his defense has been good.
00:14:02
His offense has been awful, but his defense has been good and it's been very helpful for us.
00:14:07
Um, yeah, those are the guys that stuck stuck out for me like, uh, doing O Keefe.
00:14:14
Obviously, to like Keith, Keith in general has been productive.
00:14:20
Yeah, he's been productive when he's on the floor.
00:14:22
Three guys we have not done well, I'm leaving right out out of this because he's like, you know, he's on and off, right? And plus, he didn't really play last.
00:14:31
Siri's the guy who has not been well, is e Think we all know who has it like, uh, Travel deposit Done well, like he's just javale McGee.
00:14:43
The guys out there doing cardio right now.
00:14:45
Seriously, that's really bad.
00:14:47
Like, uh, yeah, and the thing is, is like, you know, like his fouls aren't just fouls.
00:14:54
His fouls are dumb fouls as in Like he'll he'll go after the rebound, but run, run into somebody or like, or he'll try to bring up the like.
00:15:02
He hasn't done this in the playoffs, but it's like but he's done this enough like e think he did this during the season like a little like hell You have LeBron and like Rondo on the floor, and then he'll he'll bring up the ball himself.
00:15:15
You know, like it will be a turnover, obviously, like, you know, stuff like that.
00:15:20
It's just like he hasn't.
00:15:21
Hey, has one of the poorest B ball accused I've ever seen on any player, and it's really it's really, really bad.
00:15:28
So I need a E.
00:15:30
And obviously Danny Green.
00:15:32
Danny Green has been atrocious way e.
00:15:37
Give the group some stats on how bad Danny Green has been.
00:15:42
Shout out to Ah, Paul Rosario.
00:15:44
Nine.
00:15:45
He had sent me this tweet.
00:15:47
It has been 250 days since Danny Green has had his last 20 point game, 211 days since he's had his last 15 point game.
00:15:55
Danny Green as the third threat is a myth.
00:15:59
What, what, what, what, what, what? What more needs to happen to get.
00:16:04
I mean, the man clearly is listening to Shaq as his shooting coach because for him to be performing like this and making $15 million has to be a crime against humanity.
00:16:17
I know we have things going on in our world that is way beyond basketball, right, Danny green.
00:16:25
Looting the Lakers for $15 million needs to be in the earmarks of 2020 is one of the things that cannot happen going forward.
00:16:34
I'm not at the point yet where I say I don't want him back, regardless, but I am getting very frustrated with him, making his first three missing his next three threes, the Lakers granting a 15 point lead, him making a lead to grow in tow. 18.
00:16:56
But when it's their down four, he can't make it one.
00:17:00
When they're down to, he can't put them up one.
00:17:03
I would love to know Danny Green's clutch three point shooting or fourth quarter three point shooting these days because my man is beyond awful.
00:17:11
Yeah, he has the highest plus minus on the court for the Lakers, with his offensive performances.
00:17:17
Is beyond me.
00:17:19
Right place, right time.
00:17:21
That's all it is.
00:17:22
It can't be defense.
00:17:24
It cannot be defense.
00:17:25
It has to be him in team defense, we are seeing their demise and literally the like.
00:17:32
Jamal Murray is putting Danny Green in between his like canine and his other two teeth and picking him apart like it is not fun when Danny Green has to guard Jamal murdered Murray.
00:17:44
He's looking at him like salsa.
00:17:45
Verdict. Honest.
00:17:47
Yeah, and the thing about Danny Green is that he has, like, his numbers has advanced.
00:17:54
Numbers are really good, right? But the thing is because he's always gonna play good defense because he's a smart defender.
00:18:00
But the thing is that his offense is so bad that I don't care how good your defense is.
00:18:05
You could be prime in 1987.
00:18:08
Defensive player to your MJ if your defense.
00:18:11
If your offense is that bad, it doesn't matter because you're not being you're not putting your team over the top, you're you're you're there to put the team over the top in the sense that you have to make these shots right and he's not doing that.
00:18:25
And the thing is like and the thing is that if you look at the percentages to for three points, it's not bad.
00:18:30
It's I think it's like about 36% still right now.
00:18:33
Like uh, yeah, what's what's the what Daniel's averaging from three.
00:18:37
Uh, if my numbers air correct, he is a 29% ****ing three point shooter.
00:18:43
This seriously 29%.
00:18:46
3 point.
00:18:48
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, the bubble.
00:18:49
Sure, yeah, it's respectable, but dog, this is not crunching time.
00:18:54
E need 35% in the playoffs.
00:18:56
I think he's about 36 in the book.
00:18:59
The Siri's is so bad, right? And like his his average.
00:19:04
And forget about his just throw away his three point percentage to look at his overall percentage.
00:19:10
It's, like below for 40%.
00:19:12
It's like 35.
00:19:13
I'm not mistaking.
00:19:14
Overall, he's shooting 28% from the field.
00:19:17
28? Are you kidding me? You know how bad, e.
00:19:27
I'm sorry.
00:19:30
That ****ed me off that No, that's that.
00:19:33
That's a little bit too much.
00:19:34
Now Danny Green is shooting 28.
00:19:38
Well, let's ****ing rounded up.
00:19:40
He is shooting 29% from the field.
00:19:44
An offensive play, bro.
00:19:48
And this man has toe a death.
00:19:51
That's every day.
00:19:53
Have them to have a Mohawk to All right, You can't be having a Mohawk and between 28% from the field.
00:19:59
Mhm.
00:20:00
Shake that **** off.
00:20:01
So seriously, do something, man.
00:20:05
Switch, Switch it.
00:20:06
Do something different.
00:20:10
The worst part is like 60% of his shots.
00:20:13
were wide open like, yeah, they didn't have.
00:20:18
They have a study like the guys who have, like the like.
00:20:20
The weirdest haircuts are the ones for, like, shooting like **** because it is in the way or something.
00:20:25
I'm pretty like him.
00:20:26
And Nick Young is reached Wash Nick Young stage of his career.
00:20:31
I would love to know Nick Young shooting percentages when he was in his last year with the Lakers.
00:20:37
That's probably comparable to what Danny Green is doing right now.
00:20:40
I'm not trying to bag on the man and like, but shout out to his agent.
00:20:47
You know, I guess this is the price to put somebody on ice while the quiet Leonard Sweet states go by.
00:20:52
But I am a dog that that number cannot cannot happen going forward the next time we record the pregame show.
00:21:01
If he is shooting under 30% from the field, I might have to do this equal to the song.
00:21:07
I might have to switch it from, you know, light jazz fusion toe like just straight.
00:21:13
Let this *** No, I'm sorry for my language, but yeah, What's up, nose? Yes.
00:21:19
You know, the funny thing is that Rick? Uh, Nick Young actually shot.
00:21:23
Well, his last season. Lakers.
00:21:25
He did like like he got.
00:21:28
He signed with the Warriors, and he got he got fat and that and he didn't He barely saw before.
00:21:32
That's why he looks so bad last year.
00:21:34
But his his last year, the Lakers, he actually did.
00:21:36
Well, you know, he had a good renaissance here that year.
00:21:40
Like, remember, Luke and Luke let him much, uh, pretty much let him shoot whatever he wanted because Byron hated him.
00:21:49
Right? And, uh, he did have a lukewarm Yeah, that's true.
00:21:54
I should have said Nick Young Byron year That that would have been Yeah, that would have been the squeeze.
00:22:00
All right, who else we got? Who else do we? Uh, Danny Green.
00:22:04
I am so frustrated with that stat.
00:22:07
I need to get it off my screen.
00:22:08
Who else? Who else on the other's needs to step it.
00:22:11
Kyle Kai, My brother.
00:22:15
Now, is this the last segment we can have you on for? But I'm glad you're here.
00:22:19
Kyle Bartholomew Kuzma decided that he no longer wants to play within the confines of the Lakers offense.
00:22:31
And instead of My God wants to be in a light skin battle of supremacy in the both with Michael Porter Jr.
00:22:41
They are in some type of psychological warfare where if you see each other in the same room to light, skins cannot coexist like that.
00:22:51
They hold up all the instagram mind.
00:22:54
But what we're experiencing with childhood was nothing short than Hero Ball.
00:22:59
Why Kim M. P. J.
00:23:02
Hit his shots sometimes in LeBron's I.
00:23:06
But Kyle decides he's gonna do all of his Spinney loop de loop type ****.
00:23:11
How did how did Kyle Kwamie get locked up in this battle? And how do we get him back out of his father? I don't know, man.
00:23:21
I guess he made it personal.
00:23:22
I don't know who's the superior light skin.
00:23:25
Is that what it is? I don't know.
00:23:26
But the thing is, Kyle has seen the success of this postseason when he hasn't played is a ball.
00:23:32
When he's been a cutter to the rim, a spot up shooter.
00:23:34
That's where he's found this success within this Lakers offense.
00:23:37
When he starts going iso Kyle No, man, he just turns into 69 Jordan Clarkson again, and we don't need that.
00:23:44
We definitely do not need that.
00:23:46
So I'm going to need him to figure it out, whatever it is.
00:23:49
But he's gonna need to fix that because he doesn't have the same shot making ability I want to say is Michael Porter Jr So he's gonna have to do something a little different.
00:23:59
Get back into the offense and stop making it personal, man.
00:24:02
You could take Show him your ring at the end of the season.
00:24:05
Let's do that.
00:24:08
Nice.
00:24:10
What the hell? What the hell, man? Well, I thought we had good Kyle Kuzma, the Portland Siri's.
00:24:18
We had what we like to see, right? The Rockets.
00:24:22
Siri's.
00:24:23
We had what we like to see.
00:24:25
What is it now? He gets into the mountains with the other lights skins in the bubble.
00:24:31
And now it's personal.
00:24:37
Alright, nose is frozen, that's all.
00:24:39
You know what? I got a theory about that.
00:24:44
Talk to me.
00:24:48
I got it.
00:24:52
Uh, we were getting knives back online.
00:24:56
Let's get non back online.
00:24:58
Get him all situated out real quick.
00:25:00
I am.
00:25:03
I don't know. Call me again.
00:25:05
This isn't one of those things where I wanna bash on the brother.
00:25:08
I just want people to play better and the fact that it is literally a one on one match and everybody can see it to the fact that Chris Weber's annoying ass is calling it out right? What do we know? I mean, that's true.
00:25:24
Caruso waited. It's Anita, though.
00:25:26
Man's through a shot behind the backboard.
00:25:28
Last game.
00:25:29
Oh, the instant shocked in a full instant.
00:25:33
Yeah, it'll be on.
00:25:35
So it's Ah, it's fair.
00:25:38
But there's been there's been cools all Siri's.
00:25:42
Yeah, this whole Siri's.
00:25:44
He hasn't been great.
00:25:45
He's been okay, showing a couple good place.
00:25:47
But I'm telling you, if him and MP Jr on the court at the same time, Oh, man, he just It's something psychological.
00:25:54
I don't know because they have simply that similar haircuts.
00:25:57
They're both with a is Winnie Winnie Harlow.
00:26:02
She turned the bubble.
00:26:04
Probably not, and he see he see Tyler hero down the hall every day.
00:26:08
So you know he's sick to his stomach.
00:26:10
Let's see, I think we got nods back.
00:26:12
Let's see if we could get back Nods back for a couple of minutes.
00:26:15
Um, Jake, Brother, Great point.
00:26:18
I think this is Does have a little bit to do what Tyler is doing on the other side of the bracket and that just, you know, it goes to the point of the Miami Heat are handling their business, right? This is if we want to keep it a buck.
00:26:32
This is literally the same script that the East is going off of right now, even though the seedings different.
00:26:39
You know, he smacked him upside the head right When then win.
00:26:45
Game two.
00:26:46
Celtics Embarrassing Game three Game.
00:26:49
Four words back in the heats Favorite.
00:26:51
Don't nobody started talking about Oh my God are resigning, Getting areas about the heat like No, like just the the sense of urgency by the media that they put after one Lakers lost its clearest day.
00:27:06
It's hilarious in its sad eso.
00:27:09
When the Lakers go up 31 everybody cools.
00:27:11
The Jets back off, literally.
00:27:13
Watch watch.
00:27:15
Tomorrow when the Lakers win tomorrow, all the headlines, nothing is going to be about this game.
00:27:21
What is the conversation going to be about tomorrow? Kwan Um, it'll either be back to the cakewalk theory.
00:27:28
Um, kid.
00:27:29
Miami's scared the Lakers.
00:27:32
Um, it will be anything but giving Lakers like their credit for bouncing back.
00:27:37
It'll be anything but it will be.
00:27:40
It will go from we our do.
00:27:44
The Nuggets had the edge over the Lakers.
00:27:46
Jamal Murray.
00:27:47
We feel like we should be up to right now to be to one right now.
00:27:49
To be honest, we go from that to completely bypassing this.
00:27:53
Siri's the conversation.
00:27:55
Tomorrow is going to be heat Lakers.
00:27:57
It's going like they're going to recap this game.
00:28:00
Let's see if we could get nods back on for to get his thoughts on this.
00:28:03
If the Lakers win tonight, watch watch the media script and how we just jump into heat.
00:28:10
Lakers, Battle of the coast.
00:28:13
This this and that like and that's a discredit to the Denver Nuggets, right? This is literally the situation that they've come back from both times, both times.
00:28:23
And now, as we got you.
00:28:26
Yeah, his buddy.
00:28:31
Nope.
00:28:33
Yes.
00:28:34
Not all right.
00:28:35
Never mind.
00:28:36
Sorry about that warrant.
00:28:37
I got to trigger happy, but it's a discredit to the Nuggets if they what they're about to dio when the Lakers are finish it off.
00:28:43
So now it's wanting to get your quick thoughts about how the narratives are going to shift if the Lakers move this two or 31 Siri's.
00:28:57
I think we're not even gonna talk about the basketball game that off that much tomorrow to you're gonna talk about the football game you're gonna talk about who's playing today on Tuesday on Thursday Night Football.
00:29:07
You know, that's very true.
00:29:08
Thursday Night football.
00:29:11
Yeah, they got actually Jacksonville in Miami, like to awful teams with. That would be the story.
00:29:19
Yeah, they're awful teams and they'll talk about it.
00:29:22
I'll be like, Okay, well, who's gonna make the playoffs and whatever like it won't matter.
00:29:26
And then then finally like like a t end of the show or whatever talk show.
00:29:30
It's on the sports.
00:29:32
So it's on.
00:29:33
Then they'll talk about the Lakers.
00:29:35
Like what Mommy said, like about how oh, the Lakers just the narrative will switch from them having potentially being upset because they're like the weakest one seed ever to being like Oh, they had to their their roads in the finals.
00:29:50
There's gonna be was actually one of the easiest.
00:29:52
We're gonna everybody Captain hindsight at that point, you know? So, yeah, it's gonna be going, but I don't care, man.
00:30:01
Like at at this point, I'm kind of used to it.
00:30:03
It's just the way things are when you have Ah, when you have the Lakers.
00:30:06
And especially if LeBron's on the team because everything gets amplified, like all the all the all the hating becomes amplified by, like, 20 when he's on the team.
00:30:16
You got Lakers and the bronze on it.
00:30:18
So it just makes it that much work.
00:30:20
You get used to it.
00:30:21
It z there.
00:30:25
Yep.
00:30:26
Got to get used to it Is Lakers fans as LeBron fans joining infusing forces that the bull**** don't come from every angle, they will discredit the achievements.
00:30:35
They will, um, you know, highlight the losses.
00:30:38
So that's the life we live.
00:30:40
No matter.
00:30:41
Championship still come about every decade.
00:30:43
So, um, not as my brother.
00:30:45
Thank you for sticking with us through the technical difficulties.
00:30:48
Always great to have you on, bro, bro.
00:30:50
Well, we're gonna link up this weekend to get a little bit more formal.
00:30:54
Long form combo.
00:30:55
So looking forward to chopping it up with you.
00:30:59
Absolutely.
00:31:00
Thank you for having you guys appreciate it.
00:31:01
Appreciate your brother.
00:31:03
Yes, sir.
00:31:04
That is non.
00:31:05
I don't even know what nods his handle is anymore.
00:31:07
He has way off piste at on here.
00:31:11
Like my brother's name is opinions on the MBA and opinions on the MBA one.
00:31:16
I think that's where you could still find him.
00:31:18
But way off ****es Absolutely hilarious.
00:31:22
Eso Okay, Kwame, Shall we Shall we focus our attention on game four and a little bit about, you know, some of the predictions and what we think about to go down in this nice little Siri's.
00:31:38
So Jamal Murray Nikola Jokic Bad man.
00:31:43
Bad, bad, bad man, right? That man joke.
00:31:48
It was kind of taken it to 81 on one, like, deliberately like that was part of the game plan, right? A little bit.
00:31:56
There's was a little bit in me that I was like, Honestly, I wouldn't mind a little one on one basketball and just watching, watching the Titans go after it like, you know, like the old days.
00:32:07
But there's got to be a little bit more of a defensive strategy and how they want to combat, you know, joke.
00:32:14
It's no longer being in pick and rolls.
00:32:17
They moved away from that, and they just said, **** it.
00:32:19
Post up, man like Dwight is gonna follow you travel.
00:32:23
The show is going to follow you, like in a D.
00:32:26
You live with the results, right? There's plays a d embarrass him.
00:32:29
There's a place where it's, like joking, trying to cold, right? So I guess if you're the Lakers is the move to start Dwight and then put him a Nikola from the jump, probably.
00:32:45
Um but to be honest, I mean, I think their game plan against him is probably the best thing for that they can do is just let him play one on one, because you start doubling.
00:32:54
You know, the guy's got vision.
00:32:56
He can pass, man.
00:32:57
He's probably the best passing big man we have in the game.
00:32:59
So you don't want him to really start getting the other people involved, and then we have a situation where you know, random random player goes off on us.
00:33:09
We don't need that.
00:33:10
So if he's gonna drop 50 on us, let him drive 50 on us, but he's gonna have to do it one on one.
00:33:14
He's gonna get banged up.
00:33:16
I mean, hopefully our big men could keep their heads on straight party is better than I expected from Nikola.
00:33:23
Definitely, man. He plays in my high.
00:33:25
He plays high.
00:33:26
It's gotta be decent.
00:33:27
E.
00:33:28
I don't know what the climate is in Serbia of I assume the air quality.
00:33:31
Yeah, I'm sure he likes cheese after games.
00:33:35
Oh, my God.
00:33:36
I'm sure he enjoys his cheeseburgers at this fast food, but he could play, so I'm not even gonna be mad at it.
00:33:42
So, honestly, I think that's the best defensive strategy against him is just toe.
00:33:46
Let him go on on one and live with the results again.
00:33:49
If he scores 50 on us, he scores 50.
00:33:51
Honest.
00:33:52
I don't anticipate that.
00:33:53
But when you start letting him dime up the whole team, that's when problems create.
00:33:57
It's a similar like toe LeBron strategy.
00:33:59
You know, if you start letting the others get it in the next thing, you know, lebron could switch it on.
00:34:04
And while his all the others have their game going, then you have a huge problem on your hands.
00:34:09
So, obviously, And to be honest, he kind of disappeared late in that game the other day.
00:34:14
Jamal saved them fax saved them That's what great duels do, right? Like, Hey, you handle the first half.
00:34:22
I'll get you along the way there, brother. Right? Alright.
00:34:25
Great point right there, Man.
00:34:27
Jeremy Grant was the difference in last game.
00:34:33
The boy postseason had the game of his life drop in 26 on seven of 11 shooting in two for five from 3.
00:34:43
10 or 12 from the free throw line.
00:34:46
We got the name coming out in a couple of minutes here.
00:34:49
I definitely need I need his p o v on the Lakers, you know, chirping out into the wind about Hey, how the **** the Jeremy Grant get all these free throws in? LeBron James has 10 for the Siri's.
00:35:02
Something's a little off about that, but, I mean, I'm like, we don't We don't expect Jeremy Grant Game two point.
00:35:07
Oh, do we? No, not at all.
00:35:10
I mean, no, no, Maybe like, 10 points.
00:35:14
11. Maybe.
00:35:15
I don't see 26.
00:35:16
I don't see 20 him cracking 20 again.
00:35:19
What about what about Monte Morris, man, He gave you feet 14.
00:35:23
Good ones.
00:35:25
I mean, I've always liked his game, and he's a great mid range shooter.
00:35:29
E like his game za Nice game.
00:35:32
He takes his good shot selection.
00:35:35
Doesn't do too much.
00:35:36
Just kind of plays women. His role.
00:35:38
I'm a fan of I'm a fan of E.
00:35:42
I like the chapter meeting E.
00:35:45
Oh, yeah.
00:35:47
If anybody if anybody is gonna tear us up, we have toe work.
00:35:51
If anybody is gonna have a consistent sort of break out, I think it would be Maga Porter Jr if anybody.
00:35:57
Um, because we've seen his shot making ability.
00:35:59
Sometimes again, he gets to his head and his and he just starts shooting. Whatever.
00:36:04
You know, he gets that that light skinned Jack him up syndrome.
00:36:06
But, you know, hey has the ability to hit those big shots so we can't let we can't let their bench out players.
00:36:13
And that's what we saw last game.
00:36:14
Their bench absolutely throttle bars, the rot hold.
00:36:18
We can't have that again, you know, that's I think that's one of the bigger keys that we also have to watch out for.
00:36:25
The Lakers had four offensive rebounds last game, just doing quick math.
00:36:31
3456789 They got outrebounded on the offensive glass 9 to 4 Guam.
00:36:39
The last time I checked, the only bad boy that day that the Nuggets have over £250 is Nikola Jokic, right? Lakers have multiple seven footers that are that, you know are up there in size and girth.
00:36:54
Pause, but just take up space to grab these rebounds.
00:36:59
I think it's the perfect time to bring our Boivin a on because I want toe dive into this whole rebounding conversation.
00:37:06
The Lakers are, by all intensive purposes, one of the best defensive teams in the MBA.
00:37:12
They're one of the best defensive rebounding teams in the NBA, and yet we saw a game in Game three.
00:37:21
We're Anthony Davis.
00:37:23
It doesn't even look really.
00:37:25
When you look at it had two rebounds, the veil McGee had one rebound and Dwight Howard had one rebound.
00:37:33
Someone has to make some sense of it.
00:37:35
I could Onley ask one person to do it, as he always does, coming onto the late night lakeshore pregame show.
00:37:43
We want to bring on the nay kill him, our boy, the top dog in a what's happening? I'm what's up, guys? What's a Ricky? What's a quality I have been doing nothing but laughing at you, making fun of quality for liking Monte Morris.
00:37:58
E got nowhere, man like, Well, he's like, well, actually, like Z o z o.
00:38:14
He played All right, Uh, you played well enough to help him win, but to chime in, you know, always humble and gracious to be here part of part of the pre game with you guys, Uh, you know, very happy.
00:38:26
I hope all the fans enjoy watching you, you guys, because I know I'm always laughing every time I'm tuning into you guys with slander Eso Yeah, as you mentioned Ricki, Um, the rebounding disparity was a big deal in last game, and that was like, the biggest thing that jumped out.
00:38:42
I think for everybody you saw, like, Cassidy Hubbarth Hub Arthur fat around the last time you saw a bunch of ESPN people, national media people like, Oh, my God, I've never seen Anthony Davis. He's 6 ft 11.
00:38:53
How is he? Only got two rebounds.
00:38:55
Unbelievable.
00:38:56
And there was a reason for that.
00:38:58
And so I posted a video a couple a couple of days ago, just kind of giving context to why he wasn't getting rebounds and So, um, you know, a lot of times, the first general answer everybody kept giving is Well, he's out there contesting these threes.
00:39:11
Uh, because somebody has to rotate and contest these threes, They're not just gonna let them take wide open threes.
00:39:16
And so, you know, a long story short.
00:39:19
There was about 25 available rebounds.
00:39:21
So Anthony Davis basically rebounds that.
00:39:23
He could have grabbed because he was on the floor on dso when I took a look at all that tape.
00:39:29
Turns out about 10 of those rebounds he wasn't gonna be able to get because he was a guy trying to defend the shot.
00:39:34
So sometimes it was on the perimeter sometimes.
00:39:37
Yeah, Sometimes he was.
00:39:38
He was trying to block like somebody driving to the room like Millsap would go for a block.
00:39:42
We are Sorry, Elliot.
00:39:43
He blocked him.
00:39:44
But then somebody who grabbed the rebound from behind them.
00:39:46
Right.
00:39:47
Um, and then there are a lot of other situations where the ball just bounced in the opposite direction.
00:39:52
So you saw, like, LeBron get a whole bunch of rebounds.
00:39:54
Rondo get rebounds.
00:39:56
Whose might get rebounds? Um, does that excuse the lack of rebounding Total? No.
00:40:01
But what it does say is the Lakers need to be aware of what what Denver is doing to them.
00:40:06
And what they're doing is they want guys like Jeremy Grant.
00:40:09
They want guys like Tory Craig.
00:40:11
They want guys like Paul Millsap to shoot as quickly as possible from three.
00:40:16
So they keep, uh, Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard out of the paint.
00:40:20
Because if you guys remember in that Rocket Siri's, the whole reason P.
00:40:24
J.
00:40:25
Tucker sits in that corner is so that you have to respect it.
00:40:27
So you gotta either give up the three or you're going to stand in the paint.
00:40:31
And the reason why the Lakers were ableto bottle up the Rockets was because their rotations were so good so that nobody ever had to actually run out to that corner. They were just rotate.
00:40:39
But there will always be somebody at the rim, and, um, Denver is doing the same thing.
00:40:44
Denver is doing the same exact thing.
00:40:45
They just have different personnel.
00:40:47
Instead of guys like Robert Covington and P.
00:40:50
J.
00:40:51
Tucker, they got Nikolai Yokich and Jeremy Grant and Paul Millsap, so it's really just a style style thing.
00:40:57
You know, they started off.
00:40:58
They started off the Siri's game one game to playing that, like, kind of, uh, you know, one on one style running their offense and about half after the halftime point of Game two, um, Denver just went to his own.
00:41:13
And so their entire goal with the zone was to turn the Lakers into a jump shooting team.
00:41:17
And that's how they came back in Game two.
00:41:19
And that's how they were, kind of, you know, giving us a lot of trouble in Game three up until the Lakers probably decided to play defense and and cut cut into that lead.
00:41:27
Um, and they're going to do that again today.
00:41:30
So what they're going to try and do is they're gonna play that zone defense, and they're gonna say, Alright, anybody that wants to take a lap is going to see three people at the room, so you're gonna either take your pass it out to a wide open shooter and we'll take our chances.
00:41:42
And what made last game so difficult? The reason why the Lakers went down, um, is also because we only shot like 23% from three.
00:41:50
And of like, the 26 shots that we took I want to say, like around like 15 or 16 of them were wide open and you just can't do that.
00:42:00
You can't be missing like that.
00:42:02
And granted, you know, we've only had all three games where we shot less than 30%.
00:42:06
Basically hit, like, single digit number of threes we've lost.
00:42:09
So if we shoot like that again, we're probably gonna have ah, very, very tough game.
00:42:14
But what I can ah, positive thing that could share with all the folks there listening is Lakers usually bounced back pretty well from these kind of poor efforts because they're able to identify.
00:42:24
All right, you know, KCP got a wide open shot to tie the game, missed it.
00:42:27
Who's my pump fake for no reason and shorted his shot when they had a chance to tie.
00:42:32
So, you know, like these sort of opportunities, they could fix this stuff like that.
00:42:35
But more than the rebounds, more than shooting more than the offensive defensive scheme, those are all things that I think will correct themselves.
00:42:44
The Lakers effort has to be desperate.
00:42:47
I think we've seen that in like that. Miami in Boston.
00:42:50
Siri's like these.
00:42:51
These are These are the last four teams until the finals.
00:42:54
None of these teams were trying to, you know, go home right now.
00:42:57
They've already come way too far.
00:42:59
So the Lakers have to match that of energy.
00:43:02
And you can't be having Yokich come down the court and just bullying javale all over the court for easy lands and stuff like that.
00:43:07
We can't be doing that.
00:43:08
I e I don't think I've seen anything on the line ups, but I will not be before game time that vocal like to do it right? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
00:43:20
He won't release it early, but I will not be surprised at all if he if he switches out that line up, you know, he may go with that Houston lineup where he put Markieff in.
00:43:28
Yeah, and space it out better for the Lakers about that right now.
00:43:33
I'm glad you're on because I wanted to ask about that.
00:43:36
The natural thought process when you have a big like Yokich is to swap out your line up and get rid of the traffic cone.
00:43:45
That is javale McGee right now and insert the guy that is high energy, high effort and a defender of other centers in Dwight Howard.
00:43:54
But I'm also seeing this, you know, play on.
00:43:58
Maybe we should tap into the Houston lineup, which we also thought might carry over into this.
00:44:04
Siri's where Mark Keith slides in as the four and a D is the fight.
00:44:09
Tell me, what advantage do you think the Lakers have in that lineup as opposed toe? Just go big and we're gonna set our lineup as up against joking specifically.
00:44:18
Yeah, so obviously, if we start Dwight, he's a much more physical guy.
00:44:21
He can kind of stand up Yokich a little bit better when he's trying to go for the post ups.
00:44:25
The downside of doing that, though, is if they want to run the Jamal Murray Yokich pick and roll to start the game.
00:44:32
Dwight's gonna get put on Murray and Dwight's not bad, but Murray's kind of just you know, he's playing with a lot of confidence.
00:44:38
So he's like, I'm worried about what happens with that matchup.
00:44:41
Eso defensively.
00:44:42
It adds more size.
00:44:43
Dwight, so much better lob threat.
00:44:45
He doesn't get lost on the court.
00:44:46
The way JaVale does.
00:44:48
He won't like over Hedge on the Hay won't like, close out so hard that yoga just pump fakes and drives by them.
00:44:54
That kind of stuff doesn't happen, but again, you're spacing is a little bit difficult.
00:44:58
Dwight is a lot threat, but it does kind of take away some of the room that that, uh, what's called Entity Davis and and and Brown get to work with now if you go with the Marquis flying up and what that at least allows you to do is you get to put a D on Yokich to Not if they want to run that pick and roll A.
00:45:16
D is now the guy That's not Murray.
00:45:18
So now you can't go to that to that.
00:45:20
Really, You have to go to your kitchen. The Post.
00:45:22
But then you could do different stuff.
00:45:23
You could try and front them.
00:45:24
You could make it through bad passes, all kinds of stuff.
00:45:26
So there's there's different and obviously, on the offensive end markets in the corner or market at the top of the break, you're getting wide open threes.
00:45:33
Okay? She's not gonna not gonna close out on them.
00:45:35
They're gonna have to change that matchup up.
00:45:36
So there there's a lot of different things.
00:45:40
There's a lot of pros and cons that come with each one of those situations.
00:45:43
It really comes down to what the Lakers are prioritizing if they're prioritizing.
00:45:47
Look, we want this game to be Slope.
00:45:49
We want to grind it out.
00:45:50
We want to beat him up.
00:45:51
Then we can do that.
00:45:52
Well, put Dwight in in for JAVALE.
00:45:54
But the Onley issue is that Yokich is, uh, one of those guys who knows Now he he knows he knows how to.
00:46:02
He knows how to draw fouls that air.
00:46:04
Not fast, you know, And that that could become a problem for the Lakers.
00:46:09
Because even if they Dwight Howard in Javale McGee, because sometimes brain goes neutral, it happens.
00:46:16
It happens.
00:46:17
Yeah, they could play.
00:46:18
They could play five straight excellent plays and then, like two plays in a row, Dwight may draw a foul, and now he's out of the first quarter.
00:46:24
So that that's sort of the issue that the Lakers sort of run into.
00:46:28
And then you then you have to think about do I dip into JaVale McGee now Or do I go to a small volume? So a lot, A lot of different things that happened.
00:46:34
I think the Lakers will be more prepared.
00:46:37
I think there will be a lineup change.
00:46:40
I honestly think it's 50 50.
00:46:42
I don't know if they're gonna go with Markieff and play ADF Center or if they're going to go with Dwight to start the game.
00:46:47
But the most important part out of all of this stuff, the Lakers have to be the aggressor.
00:46:53
They have to be the ones that go out and start throwing punches first.
00:46:56
Because if you lay back and you think that these guys are gonna roll over these air young guys like you if you guys Yeah, yeah, even if you put a pick up somewhere and you're like the young team and the team that's on the court, a bunch of old guys have been playing a couple of games.
00:47:11
You're trying to knock him off the court so you don't get it.
00:47:13
Don't matter if it's LeBron or a D or who it is like you're you're gonna trying to run him off the court.
00:47:17
And so if it's your last game exactly you get up for the Lakers and LeBron.
00:47:23
I mean, if there's nothing else in your career to get up for and, you know, tear your point, this this Nuggets team has kind of now been through the gauntlet.
00:47:32
Multiple years, there's not, you know, this is the last destination, as's faras things that cannot their confidence, they BTK wide letter, right.
00:47:45
The opportunity to beat LeBron James is out of this world.
00:47:51
I don't think they dream about it, right.
00:47:53
So they have to throw away the oh, the Lakers.
00:47:56
They're just going to, you know, overpower them.
00:47:59
Mentally, They don't care.
00:48:00
These kids don't care.
00:48:02
Of all four teams that are remaining, Denver is the team that's playing with house money right now.
00:48:07
Nobody expected him to get to this point.
00:48:08
They didn't expect them to beat the Clippers.
00:48:10
They were down to the Jazz.
00:48:11
So they thought, The Jazz, We're gonna win that Siri's.
00:48:13
So when you play against a team that's playing with house money, they'll do anything and everything.
00:48:18
Like even if they think it's a foul, they'll still do it and hope that the refs don't call it.
00:48:22
So.
00:48:23
You have to play with that desperation, they It doesn't matter to them and they're going to be playing free.
00:48:27
Lakers can't be tight.
00:48:29
They gotta keep playing their game.
00:48:30
And so they usually bounced back pretty well.
00:48:32
They have in the playoffs.
00:48:33
And I don't think the Lakers wanted wanted to turn into a seven game series.
00:48:37
So I think it will probably take it Siri's.
00:48:40
So I'm sorry.
00:48:41
So then I got a question for you.
00:48:42
Man s o with.
00:48:44
We've seen Denver have a lot of success with the Murray and Yokich Pick and roll.
00:48:48
Um, we've seen a few different coverages.
00:48:52
We've seen them try and blitz the pick and roll, and then they've been able to eat Yokich, which has then been ableto either He either gets a quick floater, is able to pass it out.
00:49:00
So what? What do you think is the best way to do? Because I saw a few times where they even have LeBron guard Murray.
00:49:05
So when the switch came, it was a simple switch.
00:49:07
You don't Even if the big was out on Murray, LeBron still has a decent, modest sized pause that he could guard.
00:49:13
You get a little bit so and then, even when they switched to the zone as they started to make their their come back a little bit where they were kind of able to trap Yokich in the middle of the floor and kind of make him make a decision and we got a few picks pickups on them.
00:49:26
So I saw a lot of good coverage.
00:49:27
Is in the second half of the game, eh? So what do you think? The Lakers kind of uses their strategy, Um, to kind of defend those things moving forward? Yeah.
00:49:36
So you you you actually brought it up perfectly.
00:49:38
This is another thing that they did in the Houston Siri's that they saw that what Harden was trying to do, what Antonio was trying to do was to get Harden a Nen initial screen.
00:49:48
So he get a better matchup at the top of the three so that he could decide whether you want to drive or shoot over people.
00:49:53
So what Vogel did to start that game is that he would put a d on Russ, and then he would put Braun on hearted.
00:50:01
So any switching action that happened between those guys or anything like that, there's always one of those guys kind of in the vicinity of each other.
00:50:08
So what Vogel could do in this situation is depending on who he plays.
00:50:12
He could put you know, Braun on Murray to start the game and in transition, said, Brawn may not be the guy that picks him up, but in the half court, Braun, maybe the guy that picks him up and that's on Leo.
00:50:24
The way to think of it is sometimes if I if my assignments or set up a certain way, you won't even run that play because you know who's gonna be the person that switches.
00:50:31
So if if by putting Braun on Murray at the beginning of the game means that they don't run any of that pick and roll to start it, then that's an advantage to you, right? And but in the end, um, Green KCP Whoever is the fifth starter, you have to be on top of the role of guys.
00:50:47
You guys said it perfectly.
00:50:49
You can't let Jeremy Grant put 26 on you like that.
00:50:52
You If you do that, you're asking, you can't do that.
00:50:56
And so Lakers have to be the aggressor they'll do different things.
00:50:59
Different matchups, elections.
00:51:01
I hope that they run more zone because and people keep knocking the zone and throwing little jabs that it's like All right, well, ****ing beat it, then, e.
00:51:11
I mean, if you watch, yeah, if you watch.
00:51:14
The zone has worked for Denver in terms of like slowing down, not the Lakers offense, but slowing down like the weight like that.
00:51:20
You could see like the brain processing of the guys on the court, like it's a little bit sore because everybody's worried about where everybody is that in the zone.
00:51:27
But you see it in the Miami Syria's you see in the Boston, Siri's everybody is running zone defense.
00:51:32
You gotta either make these shots over me, or you're gonna have to finish through a bunch of people and maybe draw fouls or whatever it is.
00:51:36
So it Z.
00:51:38
If the Nuggets run zone, the Lakers have to collapse it.
00:51:41
And if they collapse the zone, our shooters gotta make their shots.
00:51:44
That's how you beat the zone s.
00:51:46
Oh, well, you know, as always, I'm a superstitious guy, so I'm gonna be doing my rosaries before the game starts.
00:51:53
But You know, I've got confidence in our guys that they're gonna be, uh, you know, there'll be more prepared.
00:51:58
Um, it seems like they may be took the foot off the gas.
00:52:01
That last game on Denver really capitalized on it.
00:52:03
So hopefully you know, they take it seriously.
00:52:06
Obviously, this time? Absolutely.
00:52:09
The night we so appreciate.
00:52:11
Every time you stop on can't get you out of here without admitting Lakers picking up the w tonight.
00:52:17
Correct? Yes.
00:52:18
I think they went tonight. Okay.
00:52:20
All right.
00:52:21
Oh, now, selfish thing.
00:52:23
I bet that LeBron would score over 27 points.
00:52:28
Well, what's the what's the What's the number? 27.
00:52:31
That's tough thing you did.
00:52:36
26 a half or 27 a half.
00:52:38
27 a half.
00:52:39
This'll this'll.
00:52:42
Okay, let me see something.
00:52:43
Let me just check something real quick.
00:52:45
Okay? Since I'm here, I'm gonna get this number.
00:52:48
How many times gambling? A segment sponsored by Nike.
00:52:53
All right.
00:52:54
All I'm going to tell you is your either barely going to make that number barely going to be O or or LeBron is not gonna come close and he's gonna have a triple double of the win.
00:53:08
That's that's all I could tell you.
00:53:10
I really, really can't get his numbers have been, um, the bronze style of play in the playoffs is probably not friendly to gambler.
00:53:19
I would assume it's not friendly the gamblers, but he's been playing like within the waves of the offense.
00:53:26
He doesn't need to put up 30.
00:53:28
He's not gonna put up three the last two games.
00:53:30
He had to put up a lot of points because they need help in the first half of Game two and then, you know, they couldn't get any.
00:53:35
Nobody could get anything going in Game three.
00:53:36
So, um, the fact that the Nuggets were playing his own defense, Ricky means that you may get that.
00:53:42
I just need the **** you three.
00:53:45
But if LeBron decides to be like that cerebral guy, that's just picking him apart with passes and his team for making shots, then I mean he may not. I don't know.
00:53:55
I don't want to make you a no, it's fine, man. That's why I asked.
00:53:58
I didn't need you.
00:53:59
I need you to also be my height man and my bucket of cold water at the exact same time.
00:54:04
And that's exactly what you did, man.
00:54:05
So I appreciate you for that.
00:54:07
Maybe next time I'll pick your brain before I lock in my parlor.
00:54:10
That's a one, man E.
00:54:14
I was like, Okay, come on.
00:54:19
It's about a win win Would be a win win would be, You know, Lakers win, You hit your money line or your over under or whatever it is, and everybody's happy.
00:54:30
But we want that win.
00:54:32
First and foremost, I don't care if LeBron scores for you, so I mean, I kind of care e I've been California.
00:54:42
I can't even gavel, bro.
00:54:43
I saw.
00:54:44
So I've got to put up the money 2500 on a $10 bit.
00:54:46
You guys can't hope outside and you can't gamble on sports.
00:54:53
I don't know what the state of California is going on, brother.
00:54:55
We send our prayers from the Chicago land area.
00:54:59
You give us the good weather will say energy and sports gambling.
00:55:03
So appreciate you coming out, fellas, talk to you. Soon. Go, Lakers man.
00:55:11
All right, That's our boy.
00:55:13
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
00:55:15
Yeah, yeah.
00:55:16
Please tell me you didn't bet.
00:55:18
Single digits on that.
00:55:19
You didn't bet triple digits on Bron? No, of course not.
00:55:23
Quantity.
00:55:24
Okay, of course not, dog.
00:55:25
My bets trust.
00:55:27
It's my bets Are my intuition plus that little carrot of how much I could actually win with it.
00:55:35
I bet $30 that LeBron James would score 28 points, and, uh, Jacksonville's running back Robinson has 70 yards or more.
00:55:45
I bet 30 e can come 1 75.
00:55:49
, come on.
00:55:51
You know what I'm saying? Like, I saw my boy read Who put a g up? I just checked my retweets my boy.
00:55:58
Reed Johnson.
00:56:00
Oh, he put a grand up That Jacksonville is running back would have over 70 yards.
00:56:06
And I was like, Oh, my God, He's like, Honestly, let me tell you why.
00:56:09
And I'm like, Okay, I'll tie that into a parlay.
00:56:11
That's our spot right out of this.
00:56:14
Great. A.
00:56:15
Because you do it to You do? Yeah, but I do.
00:56:18
I do the safe bets.
00:56:20
What they going to you tonight? What does it say? Um e o right now, probably a d.
00:56:29
You know, I don't know.
00:56:31
80/28 a half.
00:56:33
I do that before I do, LeBron they forced.
00:56:36
They s**** feed a d they s**** feed the guy.
00:56:39
So I'm probably going that way for this game.
00:56:42
I mean, I don't know who Jeremy Grant.
00:56:46
I mean, I don't know.
00:56:47
I don't know a lot of these air Skerry.
00:56:50
The player bets themselves.
00:56:51
A lot of them are kind of scary because I've never really dipped into player bets like that.
00:56:56
My first one is on LeBron James.
00:57:00
Well, I mean, I'm gonna be a little jaded, e I might never do it again.
00:57:05
Here's how dedicated I am to riding the wave of how much athletes can win me money.
00:57:10
I said yesterday our last week for Thursday Night Football.
00:57:14
I had a nice little Bangles parlay with the Miami Heat that hit.
00:57:17
I said that Joe Burrow comes back and covers to spread.
00:57:20
I'm buying a Joe Burrow jersey.
00:57:23
I'm tweeting the photo, not Jersey a shirt.
00:57:27
He There was a Tiger King shirt that was just Joe Burrow on it on that.
00:57:31
See, I had to cop it.
00:57:32
I'll put it on my on my Twitter feed, but a better ride with this people and LeBron James, my people right now.
00:57:39
So we're in tune.
00:57:42
He could win me some money tonight.
00:57:44
I didn't bet on the outcome of the game, Kwame.
00:57:46
I just bet LeBron well scored 28 points.
00:57:53
That's too much.
00:57:54
Ask a little bit, man.
00:57:57
He plays with a D.
00:57:59
This is calves Bron.
00:58:00
Sure, but he plays Anthony Davis, man trying to get him going anyways.
00:58:05
Predictions for tonight club.
00:58:07
Give me Give me a Lakers score and tell me besides who? LeBron James makes an impact on the offensive.
00:58:15
Ah, score.
00:58:16
I'm bad at scores.
00:58:17
Uh, let's go.
00:58:20
I'm gonna go 1 17 109 Lakers.
00:58:25
Okay.
00:58:26
Was it ever endow using what was ever in doubt? The Lakers win.
00:58:31
Will the game ever be in doubt? Um, maybe in the first quarter, But outside of that, probably I think they put I think they really put their foot on the gas and keep it on because they should know by now, this team can make comebacks.
00:58:47
They're not afraid, And I think all those little bit those little nuggets So what I did there, all those little nuggets, we'll give the Lakers, you know, a reason to really go out there and show what they're made of and show that we're a championship caliber team.
00:59:03
We're here that we're winning this thing.
00:59:06
Hey, man to that brother.
00:59:07
I got the Lakers.
00:59:08
I got the Lakers won 20 the Denver Nuggets 109 Ooh! 21 20.
00:59:18
No, that's too much.
00:59:20
That's a lot.
00:59:21
That's way too much for the Lakers right now.
00:59:23
But it's like if Danny Green becomes a contributing member of society, it knocks down two more threes.
00:59:31
We could do it.
00:59:32
All right? ****ing That's probably 1 17 toe 101 Lakers win by 16.
00:59:37
How about that? Okay, that works.
00:59:40
I pulled that from stole My by total.
00:59:44

00:00:14
Good morning, everybody.
00:00:17
So today, uh, is really a history shifting day for the Los Angeles Lakers? Hey, look at us.
00:00:27
Hey, E.
00:00:29
Good chance.
00:00:30
If you're telling me that LeBron James has Anthony Davis available to him Excuse me.
00:00:35
I'm rolling with the Lakers to win the title.
00:00:37
Look at us.
00:00:38
Who would have thought? Not may.
00:00:41
First of many, baby.
00:00:43
What was he doing with coffee with e e? Tell you way All get a, probably tell you.
00:00:58
Hey, guys, Walk to the late night Lake Show Podcast is powered by crossover media.
00:01:03
This is your host, Ricky and Kwamie.
00:01:06
We come to you guys on the Lakers pregame show.
00:01:10
I had a Game four between the Denver Nuggets and R L A Lakers. Kwamie.
00:01:16
We come up to one in the Siri's right now.
00:01:20
And, you know, by the way, timelines air looking, some Lakers fans talk.
00:01:26
You would think it's, you know, a to to Siri's man.
00:01:28
How you feeling? Are you okay? Are you doing all right? Yeah, man.
00:01:32
I mean, we lost one game.
00:01:33
We lost one game last Siris in the Siri's before.
00:01:36
I mean, we're 10 and three in the postseason.
00:01:37
Cut us some slack here.
00:01:39
I mean, the madness that happens every time the Lakers loses too much from the media.
00:01:45
And it's even from both sides, fans and enemies alike.
00:01:48
So, you know, we're gonna right the ship tonight, though.
00:01:50
I'm confident that.
00:01:52
Amen, brother.
00:01:53
Yeah, tonight could have been, you know, a special evening.
00:01:57
Maybe it was whoever tweeted it out from the late night Lakers or Twitter account that tonight would be a special evening.
00:02:04
Nonetheless, the Denver Nuggets spoiled theon paternity for the Lakers to go for the sweep by defeating them last game.
00:02:11
And it was really, uh, and everything for the Lakers.
00:02:15
Right way.
00:02:16
Watch them for really three quarters, kind of just chug along and kind of just be there and beyond the basketball court, but not really engaged.
00:02:25
You know, LeBron was LeBron ends up with a triple double.
00:02:29
Did it feel like LeBron had a triple double? Right.
00:02:32
Anthony Davis had clearly some some lack of production on the rebounding tip.
00:02:40
We got vin a coming on a little bit later on the show to give us a little bit of perspective on that, but really quantum.
00:02:47
Just give me your thoughts the first of all.
00:02:48
Let's let's start with last game, right? What did you absolutely not like And what can happen in Game four that happened in Game three? Honestly, I just I didn't like our energy.
00:03:00
I feel like we came out sluggish.
00:03:01
And once Denver really started rolling, we just kind of kept going through the motions.
00:03:05
That really picked up the intensity until essentially Dwight Howard came in, he offered a short spark, but then he was getting in foul trouble.
00:03:13
And that's what we call that acted too crazy.
00:03:16
So then the fun the energy drop.
00:03:19
Um, but honestly, that's one of the things our role players didn't really play that great.
00:03:24
They kind of reverted back to their early bubble forms where they just kinda, you know, they weren't too efficient, you know, had a few missed aches on, but also our stars, you know, even though they're stat lines, looked okay, They didn't play great.
00:03:37
You know, LeBron was fumbling the ball the whole first half, just donating it away, left and right.
00:03:42
Anthony Davis couldn't grab a rebound if they put a gun to his head and said, grab one.
00:03:46
So you know things like that.
00:03:48
Defense of energy was bad.
00:03:50
We're lazy with it.
00:03:51
It never really got great until we had that spurt in the fourth where you saw we kicked up the defensive intensity.
00:03:56
We literally destroyed a 20 point lead down down to three in about four minutes.
00:04:01
You know, so we the potential is there.
00:04:04
But that energy just gotta stay up the entire time.
00:04:07
You know, I heard some excuses about us being tired.
00:04:09
I mean, I get it.
00:04:10
We're not the youngest team in the league, but we've had we've had the most rest.
00:04:14
We've only We've had huge gaps in between Siri's, Denver's come out to seven games.
00:04:20
Siri's, you know, essentially one day of rest between their Siri's.
00:04:24
Come on, I get it.
00:04:25
They're younger, a little bit more spry.
00:04:27
They're the underdogs.
00:04:28
But I don't expect us to have the same output performance.
00:04:32
And I think honestly, the laws might not have been a bad thing. It was nice.
00:04:35
It was a nice punch in the face and, you know, hopefully wakes our team up.
00:04:37
But for the things that I think that can't happen in this next game, especially is we need to defend without fouling.
00:04:44
Denver was sitting in the bonus about halfway through every single quarter.
00:04:49
When that happens, you can't play the defense you want because you're concerned about filing and just sending him to the line.
00:04:54
It's really hard to come back from a deficit when you can't guard because you're sending people to the line, every single possession.
00:05:00
So we saw in the fourth when we had I mean, they want the bonus in the third quarter, like nine minutes left in the quarter, three minutes in the bonus.
00:05:08
That's awful.
00:05:09
That cannot happen, absolutely cannot happen, moving forward.
00:05:11
But, um, like I said, I think as long we just need to pick up the defensive intensity and try to defend without fouling.
00:05:18
And I think you know, everybody will show up with, you know, a bit of reinvigoration and get ready to go for a game forward.
00:05:24
All right, way like re vig, aerated Lakers.
00:05:27
I agree with the point, right? Kwamie like it's sometimes nice to see a little bit of the adversity.
00:05:33
You know, the Lakers, I guess, didn't haven't necessarily got their ass kicked in the playoffs yet.
00:05:39
Right in that game for the most part was not within reach until the Lakers did that nice little run in the fourth quarter.
00:05:48
That run, right? You watch basketball long enough, right? You know, pretty early on when your team doesn't have it.
00:05:57
Then you watch them, you know, jag along for three quarters.
00:06:02
Get to the fourth quarter, turn on all the burners and you're watching them just flame through the opponent and it's almost like, bro.
00:06:10
Well, just just take the hell, like at this point, right? Like, now you're showing that you definitely packed it in the first three quarters, and now you're wasting your entire energy.
00:06:20
Probably gonna come up short right at the end, and the Lakers end up doing it.
00:06:24
There were some timely miss shots and we'll talk about the others were gonna bring our boy nods on it a couple of minutes here to talk about what the others need to do in this game for, But I mean, to me, it was just a a in effect and the aftermath of the Lakers handling their business in game one, coming back and starving off, come back by the Nuggets in Game two thinking Wow, we took their best shot, and then we still beat them on the 80 buzzer beater, right? They have to be demoralized and compound that with Dwight Howard and Javale McGee.
00:07:07
Think that they're the bash.
00:07:08
Breaux's like This is D three Mighty Ducks.
00:07:11
And there's, you know, I'm not really into the spirits and mystical beings, but, like Venus said, numerous of times, you don't wanna mess with the basketball gods.
00:07:21
Their sports, God's whatever you wanna call it, is just a deviation of karma.
00:07:25
You don't want to get too far.
00:07:27
On one side, we saw how the flippers did, talking all that **** from the sidelines and like we saw like we talked about me and Danny talked about on our last podcast episode, was You don't want to be the one that's talking all the ****, but you're not the one backing it up on the other end.
00:07:45
We love us some Dwight Howard, right? We like aggressive Dwight.
00:07:49
We like the intensity that he's bringing.
00:07:51
But Dwight Howard, coming into the game picking up a foul, picking up a technical, realizing that I need to cool it down a little bit, almost getting tossed out the game after a report by Chris Haynes that came out after Game three and then yes, the right decision.
00:08:07
Start him in the second half, right when he do since the third starts picks up another foul, it's, Ah, balance between being aggressive, being a dog, not being a dumb ass and not being a jackass, Right? Dwight likes to walk that fine line.
00:08:27
He has his whole career.
00:08:28
I personally prefer shellshock Dwight Howard like we had him in the beginning of the year.
00:08:33
We're trying to seem like he just had black around his eyes and wasn't blinking right.
00:08:37
I like humbles and garden Dwight over.
00:08:40
I'm about toe talk to Joe Kage 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
00:08:45
But hey, do you dog? My thing is, just you have to be productive and I don't know if the Dwight starting tonight.
00:08:53
I haven't seen if the rosters lineup that come out, but I think my main point is right.
00:08:59
There needs to be a balance between the Lakers aggression stepping up to the plate and actually put in the effort in their encore performance up against right, trying to intimidate the Nuggets Joke.
00:09:12
It just certified right that that boy is code, right? He's hitting some of these spinney cycle turnaround floaters on eighties had, it's like, All right, uh, that's yours, right? But there there still has to be a level of physicality that the reps need to let the Lakers bigs.
00:09:34
Um, you know, ah, force upon joke it and I won't even necessarily get in the way.
00:09:39
We'll bring Nas in in a second and let him talk.
00:09:42
Thio, JaVale McGee.
00:09:45
And but it's really going to come down to specific key contributors rising to the level of their expectations right while keeping their heads.
00:09:57
E think that's fair.
00:09:59
I think that's what absolutely needs to happen.
00:10:02
Is Faras Game three to Game four, and it's not like we're asking for too much.
00:10:08
That was Dwight the whole season, you know, basically, the way we think about it, we think about it as bad as they played.
00:10:16
We had.
00:10:17
We were right there.
00:10:18
We were literally on the doorstep is awful.
00:10:20
Is we played? We probably played R D plus game that we had it within three with about six minutes to go in the fourth quarter, but then we couldn't score for about four minutes and then, you know, we know the history after that, Jamal Murray stepped up a little bit, but come on, man.
00:10:33
It's stuff like that that, you know, we we we should know better.
00:10:37
Being a veteran team, we have a veteran team, guys that have, you know, made deep playoff runs before.
00:10:44
We're not going to scare the Nuggets.
00:10:45
The Nuggets are gonna get scared.
00:10:47
So, um, you know, talking crazy to Yokich.
00:10:50
I'm telling you, these Serbians, this is the breakout for them, you know, you got you got dragging.
00:10:54
You got Don **** you got Yokich.
00:10:56
These guys have been absolutely bawling in this bubble, and you don't It might not, Then, because next round we might see another.
00:11:03
We're probably going to see another one.
00:11:05
So we better get We better get on board with the with the train of those guys, but, um, yeah, like you said, I think it's just really players need to play to their expectations and, you know, just keep their head on straight and stop playing.
00:11:18
Stop over doing it.
00:11:19
I get I get Dwight.
00:11:20
Big thing was, he wanted to be like the Draymond of a team, you know? But you know, Dre, Mom was calculated with his trash talk, calculated with his aggression, White and even Draymond stepped over the line, right? And this prime Draymond green at the top of his defensive, you know, platform.
00:11:38
Yeah, right. Abilities.
00:11:40
Thank you, Dwight.
00:11:42
Still a good, good, solid defensive player, but a step slower than he used to be.
00:11:46
Oh, we're not asking for too much, but it's like bruh understand that joke.
00:11:52
It's probably gonna get you into foul trouble one way or the other.
00:11:55
So you know, you might want to conserve some of that.
00:11:57
Give me the app for defensive stance.
00:12:00
Let's, uh let's get Nas in here.
00:12:03
We got a We talked a little bit about Dwight Howard.
00:12:07
We talked a little bit about some of the Lakers lack of effort.
00:12:11
Nas my brother What the Davis killed? What are we going todo about? The rest off the Lakers supporting cast? How do we get them to rise to the occasion? First of all, just one of your thoughts on who has been stepping up and who needs to step the **** up as faras outside of our superstars.
00:12:38
Uh the guy who's really stepped up eyes.
00:12:41
The convict, I mean, Casey.
00:12:43
Yeah.
00:12:44
Casey really stepped up, man.
00:12:47
Like that guy has, I think, shooting If I'm not mistaken.
00:12:50
Like, I think he's shooting 60% from three.
00:12:55
No, no, no, that's not right.
00:12:56
Like, hey, 60 60% in this. In this.
00:13:00
In this, in this Siri's overall.
00:13:03
And, like, 40 plus 40 plus percent from three.
00:13:07
If I'm not mistaken, right? Uh, yeah.
00:13:11
58% field goal shooting and 53% from three big boy numbers from K C P U.
00:13:17
You hit the nail on the head there.
00:13:20
Okay.
00:13:21
I thought it was, like missing something, you know, Like like 40% was too low for him.
00:13:26
Reason, right? Yeah, he stepped up.
00:13:29
Uh, Rondo.
00:13:32
I mean, he's had some.
00:13:34
His last game wasn't the best, but I don't think we win the Rockets.
00:13:39
Siri's without him Like a zoo.
00:13:42
Much maligned as he's been, he's been without him on him being disruptive and his and his just his general great playoff.
00:13:54
Q.
00:13:55
We I don't think we win the rocket series without him.
00:13:58
Uh, Caruso's.
00:14:00
Obviously, his defense has been good.
00:14:02
His offense has been awful, but his defense has been good and it's been very helpful for us.
00:14:07
Um, yeah, those are the guys that stuck stuck out for me like, uh, doing O Keefe.
00:14:14
Obviously, to like Keith, Keith in general has been productive.
00:14:20
Yeah, he's been productive when he's on the floor.
00:14:22
Three guys we have not done well, I'm leaving right out out of this because he's like, you know, he's on and off, right? And plus, he didn't really play last.
00:14:31
Siri's the guy who has not been well, is e Think we all know who has it like, uh, Travel deposit Done well, like he's just javale McGee.
00:14:43
The guys out there doing cardio right now.
00:14:45
Seriously, that's really bad.
00:14:47
Like, uh, yeah, and the thing is, is like, you know, like his fouls aren't just fouls.
00:14:54
His fouls are dumb fouls as in Like he'll he'll go after the rebound, but run, run into somebody or like, or he'll try to bring up the like.
00:15:02
He hasn't done this in the playoffs, but it's like but he's done this enough like e think he did this during the season like a little like hell You have LeBron and like Rondo on the floor, and then he'll he'll bring up the ball himself.
00:15:15
You know, like it will be a turnover, obviously, like, you know, stuff like that.
00:15:20
It's just like he hasn't.
00:15:21
Hey, has one of the poorest B ball accused I've ever seen on any player, and it's really it's really, really bad.
00:15:28
So I need a E.
00:15:30
And obviously Danny Green.
00:15:32
Danny Green has been atrocious way e.
00:15:37
Give the group some stats on how bad Danny Green has been.
00:15:42
Shout out to Ah, Paul Rosario.
00:15:44
Nine.
00:15:45
He had sent me this tweet.
00:15:47
It has been 250 days since Danny Green has had his last 20 point game, 211 days since he's had his last 15 point game.
00:15:55
Danny Green as the third threat is a myth.
00:15:59
What, what, what, what, what, what? What more needs to happen to get.
00:16:04
I mean, the man clearly is listening to Shaq as his shooting coach because for him to be performing like this and making $15 million has to be a crime against humanity.
00:16:17
I know we have things going on in our world that is way beyond basketball, right, Danny green.
00:16:25
Looting the Lakers for $15 million needs to be in the earmarks of 2020 is one of the things that cannot happen going forward.
00:16:34
I'm not at the point yet where I say I don't want him back, regardless, but I am getting very frustrated with him, making his first three missing his next three threes, the Lakers granting a 15 point lead, him making a lead to grow in tow. 18.
00:16:56
But when it's their down four, he can't make it one.
00:17:00
When they're down to, he can't put them up one.
00:17:03
I would love to know Danny Green's clutch three point shooting or fourth quarter three point shooting these days because my man is beyond awful.
00:17:11
Yeah, he has the highest plus minus on the court for the Lakers, with his offensive performances.
00:17:17
Is beyond me.
00:17:19
Right place, right time.
00:17:21
That's all it is.
00:17:22
It can't be defense.
00:17:24
It cannot be defense.
00:17:25
It has to be him in team defense, we are seeing their demise and literally the like.
00:17:32
Jamal Murray is putting Danny Green in between his like canine and his other two teeth and picking him apart like it is not fun when Danny Green has to guard Jamal murdered Murray.
00:17:44
He's looking at him like salsa.
00:17:45
Verdict. Honest.
00:17:47
Yeah, and the thing about Danny Green is that he has, like, his numbers has advanced.
00:17:54
Numbers are really good, right? But the thing is because he's always gonna play good defense because he's a smart defender.
00:18:00
But the thing is that his offense is so bad that I don't care how good your defense is.
00:18:05
You could be prime in 1987.
00:18:08
Defensive player to your MJ if your defense.
00:18:11
If your offense is that bad, it doesn't matter because you're not being you're not putting your team over the top, you're you're you're there to put the team over the top in the sense that you have to make these shots right and he's not doing that.
00:18:25
And the thing is like and the thing is that if you look at the percentages to for three points, it's not bad.
00:18:30
It's I think it's like about 36% still right now.
00:18:33
Like uh, yeah, what's what's the what Daniel's averaging from three.
00:18:37
Uh, if my numbers air correct, he is a 29% ****ing three point shooter.
00:18:43
This seriously 29%.
00:18:46
3 point.
00:18:48
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, the bubble.
00:18:49
Sure, yeah, it's respectable, but dog, this is not crunching time.
00:18:54
E need 35% in the playoffs.
00:18:56
I think he's about 36 in the book.
00:18:59
The Siri's is so bad, right? And like his his average.
00:19:04
And forget about his just throw away his three point percentage to look at his overall percentage.
00:19:10
It's, like below for 40%.
00:19:12
It's like 35.
00:19:13
I'm not mistaking.
00:19:14
Overall, he's shooting 28% from the field.
00:19:17
28? Are you kidding me? You know how bad, e.
00:19:27
I'm sorry.
00:19:30
That ****ed me off that No, that's that.
00:19:33
That's a little bit too much.
00:19:34
Now Danny Green is shooting 28.
00:19:38
Well, let's ****ing rounded up.
00:19:40
He is shooting 29% from the field.
00:19:44
An offensive play, bro.
00:19:48
And this man has toe a death.
00:19:51
That's every day.
00:19:53
Have them to have a Mohawk to All right, You can't be having a Mohawk and between 28% from the field.
00:19:59
Mhm.
00:20:00
Shake that **** off.
00:20:01
So seriously, do something, man.
00:20:05
Switch, Switch it.
00:20:06
Do something different.
00:20:10
The worst part is like 60% of his shots.
00:20:13
were wide open like, yeah, they didn't have.
00:20:18
They have a study like the guys who have, like the like.
00:20:20
The weirdest haircuts are the ones for, like, shooting like **** because it is in the way or something.
00:20:25
I'm pretty like him.
00:20:26
And Nick Young is reached Wash Nick Young stage of his career.
00:20:31
I would love to know Nick Young shooting percentages when he was in his last year with the Lakers.
00:20:37
That's probably comparable to what Danny Green is doing right now.
00:20:40
I'm not trying to bag on the man and like, but shout out to his agent.
00:20:47
You know, I guess this is the price to put somebody on ice while the quiet Leonard Sweet states go by.
00:20:52
But I am a dog that that number cannot cannot happen going forward the next time we record the pregame show.
00:21:01
If he is shooting under 30% from the field, I might have to do this equal to the song.
00:21:07
I might have to switch it from, you know, light jazz fusion toe like just straight.
00:21:13
Let this *** No, I'm sorry for my language, but yeah, What's up, nose? Yes.
00:21:19
You know, the funny thing is that Rick? Uh, Nick Young actually shot.
00:21:23
Well, his last season. Lakers.
00:21:25
He did like like he got.
00:21:28
He signed with the Warriors, and he got he got fat and that and he didn't He barely saw before.
00:21:32
That's why he looks so bad last year.
00:21:34
But his his last year, the Lakers, he actually did.
00:21:36
Well, you know, he had a good renaissance here that year.
00:21:40
Like, remember, Luke and Luke let him much, uh, pretty much let him shoot whatever he wanted because Byron hated him.
00:21:49
Right? And, uh, he did have a lukewarm Yeah, that's true.
00:21:54
I should have said Nick Young Byron year That that would have been Yeah, that would have been the squeeze.
00:22:00
All right, who else we got? Who else do we? Uh, Danny Green.
00:22:04
I am so frustrated with that stat.
00:22:07
I need to get it off my screen.
00:22:08
Who else? Who else on the other's needs to step it.
00:22:11
Kyle Kai, My brother.
00:22:15
Now, is this the last segment we can have you on for? But I'm glad you're here.
00:22:19
Kyle Bartholomew Kuzma decided that he no longer wants to play within the confines of the Lakers offense.
00:22:31
And instead of My God wants to be in a light skin battle of supremacy in the both with Michael Porter Jr.
00:22:41
They are in some type of psychological warfare where if you see each other in the same room to light, skins cannot coexist like that.
00:22:51
They hold up all the instagram mind.
00:22:54
But what we're experiencing with childhood was nothing short than Hero Ball.
00:22:59
Why Kim M. P. J.
00:23:02
Hit his shots sometimes in LeBron's I.
00:23:06
But Kyle decides he's gonna do all of his Spinney loop de loop type ****.
00:23:11
How did how did Kyle Kwamie get locked up in this battle? And how do we get him back out of his father? I don't know, man.
00:23:21
I guess he made it personal.
00:23:22
I don't know who's the superior light skin.
00:23:25
Is that what it is? I don't know.
00:23:26
But the thing is, Kyle has seen the success of this postseason when he hasn't played is a ball.
00:23:32
When he's been a cutter to the rim, a spot up shooter.
00:23:34
That's where he's found this success within this Lakers offense.
00:23:37
When he starts going iso Kyle No, man, he just turns into 69 Jordan Clarkson again, and we don't need that.
00:23:44
We definitely do not need that.
00:23:46
So I'm going to need him to figure it out, whatever it is.
00:23:49
But he's gonna need to fix that because he doesn't have the same shot making ability I want to say is Michael Porter Jr So he's gonna have to do something a little different.
00:23:59
Get back into the offense and stop making it personal, man.
00:24:02
You could take Show him your ring at the end of the season.
00:24:05
Let's do that.
00:24:08
Nice.
00:24:10
What the hell? What the hell, man? Well, I thought we had good Kyle Kuzma, the Portland Siri's.
00:24:18
We had what we like to see, right? The Rockets.
00:24:22
Siri's.
00:24:23
We had what we like to see.
00:24:25
What is it now? He gets into the mountains with the other lights skins in the bubble.
00:24:31
And now it's personal.
00:24:37
Alright, nose is frozen, that's all.
00:24:39
You know what? I got a theory about that.
00:24:44
Talk to me.
00:24:48
I got it.
00:24:52
Uh, we were getting knives back online.
00:24:56
Let's get non back online.
00:24:58
Get him all situated out real quick.
00:25:00
I am.
00:25:03
I don't know. Call me again.
00:25:05
This isn't one of those things where I wanna bash on the brother.
00:25:08
I just want people to play better and the fact that it is literally a one on one match and everybody can see it to the fact that Chris Weber's annoying ass is calling it out right? What do we know? I mean, that's true.
00:25:24
Caruso waited. It's Anita, though.
00:25:26
Man's through a shot behind the backboard.
00:25:28
Last game.
00:25:29
Oh, the instant shocked in a full instant.
00:25:33
Yeah, it'll be on.
00:25:35
So it's Ah, it's fair.
00:25:38
But there's been there's been cools all Siri's.
00:25:42
Yeah, this whole Siri's.
00:25:44
He hasn't been great.
00:25:45
He's been okay, showing a couple good place.
00:25:47
But I'm telling you, if him and MP Jr on the court at the same time, Oh, man, he just It's something psychological.
00:25:54
I don't know because they have simply that similar haircuts.
00:25:57
They're both with a is Winnie Winnie Harlow.
00:26:02
She turned the bubble.
00:26:04
Probably not, and he see he see Tyler hero down the hall every day.
00:26:08
So you know he's sick to his stomach.
00:26:10
Let's see, I think we got nods back.
00:26:12
Let's see if we could get back Nods back for a couple of minutes.
00:26:15
Um, Jake, Brother, Great point.
00:26:18
I think this is Does have a little bit to do what Tyler is doing on the other side of the bracket and that just, you know, it goes to the point of the Miami Heat are handling their business, right? This is if we want to keep it a buck.
00:26:32
This is literally the same script that the East is going off of right now, even though the seedings different.
00:26:39
You know, he smacked him upside the head right When then win.
00:26:45
Game two.
00:26:46
Celtics Embarrassing Game three Game.
00:26:49
Four words back in the heats Favorite.
00:26:51
Don't nobody started talking about Oh my God are resigning, Getting areas about the heat like No, like just the the sense of urgency by the media that they put after one Lakers lost its clearest day.
00:27:06
It's hilarious in its sad eso.
00:27:09
When the Lakers go up 31 everybody cools.
00:27:11
The Jets back off, literally.
00:27:13
Watch watch.
00:27:15
Tomorrow when the Lakers win tomorrow, all the headlines, nothing is going to be about this game.
00:27:21
What is the conversation going to be about tomorrow? Kwan Um, it'll either be back to the cakewalk theory.
00:27:28
Um, kid.
00:27:29
Miami's scared the Lakers.
00:27:32
Um, it will be anything but giving Lakers like their credit for bouncing back.
00:27:37
It'll be anything but it will be.
00:27:40
It will go from we our do.
00:27:44
The Nuggets had the edge over the Lakers.
00:27:46
Jamal Murray.
00:27:47
We feel like we should be up to right now to be to one right now.
00:27:49
To be honest, we go from that to completely bypassing this.
00:27:53
Siri's the conversation.
00:27:55
Tomorrow is going to be heat Lakers.
00:27:57
It's going like they're going to recap this game.
00:28:00
Let's see if we could get nods back on for to get his thoughts on this.
00:28:03
If the Lakers win tonight, watch watch the media script and how we just jump into heat.
00:28:10
Lakers, Battle of the coast.
00:28:13
This this and that like and that's a discredit to the Denver Nuggets, right? This is literally the situation that they've come back from both times, both times.
00:28:23
And now, as we got you.
00:28:26
Yeah, his buddy.
00:28:31
Nope.
00:28:33
Yes.
00:28:34
Not all right.
00:28:35
Never mind.
00:28:36
Sorry about that warrant.
00:28:37
I got to trigger happy, but it's a discredit to the Nuggets if they what they're about to dio when the Lakers are finish it off.
00:28:43
So now it's wanting to get your quick thoughts about how the narratives are going to shift if the Lakers move this two or 31 Siri's.
00:28:57
I think we're not even gonna talk about the basketball game that off that much tomorrow to you're gonna talk about the football game you're gonna talk about who's playing today on Tuesday on Thursday Night Football.
00:29:07
You know, that's very true.
00:29:08
Thursday Night football.
00:29:11
Yeah, they got actually Jacksonville in Miami, like to awful teams with. That would be the story.
00:29:19
Yeah, they're awful teams and they'll talk about it.
00:29:22
I'll be like, Okay, well, who's gonna make the playoffs and whatever like it won't matter.
00:29:26
And then then finally like like a t end of the show or whatever talk show.
00:29:30
It's on the sports.
00:29:32
So it's on.
00:29:33
Then they'll talk about the Lakers.
00:29:35
Like what Mommy said, like about how oh, the Lakers just the narrative will switch from them having potentially being upset because they're like the weakest one seed ever to being like Oh, they had to their their roads in the finals.
00:29:50
There's gonna be was actually one of the easiest.
00:29:52
We're gonna everybody Captain hindsight at that point, you know? So, yeah, it's gonna be going, but I don't care, man.
00:30:01
Like at at this point, I'm kind of used to it.
00:30:03
It's just the way things are when you have Ah, when you have the Lakers.
00:30:06
And especially if LeBron's on the team because everything gets amplified, like all the all the all the hating becomes amplified by, like, 20 when he's on the team.
00:30:16
You got Lakers and the bronze on it.
00:30:18
So it just makes it that much work.
00:30:20
You get used to it.
00:30:21
It z there.
00:30:25
Yep.
00:30:26
Got to get used to it Is Lakers fans as LeBron fans joining infusing forces that the bull**** don't come from every angle, they will discredit the achievements.
00:30:35
They will, um, you know, highlight the losses.
00:30:38
So that's the life we live.
00:30:40
No matter.
00:30:41
Championship still come about every decade.
00:30:43
So, um, not as my brother.
00:30:45
Thank you for sticking with us through the technical difficulties.
00:30:48
Always great to have you on, bro, bro.
00:30:50
Well, we're gonna link up this weekend to get a little bit more formal.
00:30:54
Long form combo.
00:30:55
So looking forward to chopping it up with you.
00:30:59
Absolutely.
00:31:00
Thank you for having you guys appreciate it.
00:31:01
Appreciate your brother.
00:31:03
Yes, sir.
00:31:04
That is non.
00:31:05
I don't even know what nods his handle is anymore.
00:31:07
He has way off piste at on here.
00:31:11
Like my brother's name is opinions on the MBA and opinions on the MBA one.
00:31:16
I think that's where you could still find him.
00:31:18
But way off ****es Absolutely hilarious.
00:31:22
Eso Okay, Kwame, Shall we Shall we focus our attention on game four and a little bit about, you know, some of the predictions and what we think about to go down in this nice little Siri's.
00:31:38
So Jamal Murray Nikola Jokic Bad man.
00:31:43
Bad, bad, bad man, right? That man joke.
00:31:48
It was kind of taken it to 81 on one, like, deliberately like that was part of the game plan, right? A little bit.
00:31:56
There's was a little bit in me that I was like, Honestly, I wouldn't mind a little one on one basketball and just watching, watching the Titans go after it like, you know, like the old days.
00:32:07
But there's got to be a little bit more of a defensive strategy and how they want to combat, you know, joke.
00:32:14
It's no longer being in pick and rolls.
00:32:17
They moved away from that, and they just said, **** it.
00:32:19
Post up, man like Dwight is gonna follow you travel.
00:32:23
The show is going to follow you, like in a D.
00:32:26
You live with the results, right? There's plays a d embarrass him.
00:32:29
There's a place where it's, like joking, trying to cold, right? So I guess if you're the Lakers is the move to start Dwight and then put him a Nikola from the jump, probably.
00:32:45
Um but to be honest, I mean, I think their game plan against him is probably the best thing for that they can do is just let him play one on one, because you start doubling.
00:32:54
You know, the guy's got vision.
00:32:56
He can pass, man.
00:32:57
He's probably the best passing big man we have in the game.
00:32:59
So you don't want him to really start getting the other people involved, and then we have a situation where you know, random random player goes off on us.
00:33:09
We don't need that.
00:33:10
So if he's gonna drop 50 on us, let him drive 50 on us, but he's gonna have to do it one on one.
00:33:14
He's gonna get banged up.
00:33:16
I mean, hopefully our big men could keep their heads on straight party is better than I expected from Nikola.
00:33:23
Definitely, man. He plays in my high.
00:33:25
He plays high.
00:33:26
It's gotta be decent.
00:33:27
E.
00:33:28
I don't know what the climate is in Serbia of I assume the air quality.
00:33:31
Yeah, I'm sure he likes cheese after games.
00:33:35
Oh, my God.
00:33:36
I'm sure he enjoys his cheeseburgers at this fast food, but he could play, so I'm not even gonna be mad at it.
00:33:42
So, honestly, I think that's the best defensive strategy against him is just toe.
00:33:46
Let him go on on one and live with the results again.
00:33:49
If he scores 50 on us, he scores 50.
00:33:51
Honest.
00:33:52
I don't anticipate that.
00:33:53
But when you start letting him dime up the whole team, that's when problems create.
00:33:57
It's a similar like toe LeBron strategy.
00:33:59
You know, if you start letting the others get it in the next thing, you know, lebron could switch it on.
00:34:04
And while his all the others have their game going, then you have a huge problem on your hands.
00:34:09
So, obviously, And to be honest, he kind of disappeared late in that game the other day.
00:34:14
Jamal saved them fax saved them That's what great duels do, right? Like, Hey, you handle the first half.
00:34:22
I'll get you along the way there, brother. Right? Alright.
00:34:25
Great point right there, Man.
00:34:27
Jeremy Grant was the difference in last game.
00:34:33
The boy postseason had the game of his life drop in 26 on seven of 11 shooting in two for five from 3.
00:34:43
10 or 12 from the free throw line.
00:34:46
We got the name coming out in a couple of minutes here.
00:34:49
I definitely need I need his p o v on the Lakers, you know, chirping out into the wind about Hey, how the **** the Jeremy Grant get all these free throws in? LeBron James has 10 for the Siri's.
00:35:02
Something's a little off about that, but, I mean, I'm like, we don't We don't expect Jeremy Grant Game two point.
00:35:07
Oh, do we? No, not at all.
00:35:10
I mean, no, no, Maybe like, 10 points.
00:35:14
11. Maybe.
00:35:15
I don't see 26.
00:35:16
I don't see 20 him cracking 20 again.
00:35:19
What about what about Monte Morris, man, He gave you feet 14.
00:35:23
Good ones.
00:35:25
I mean, I've always liked his game, and he's a great mid range shooter.
00:35:29
E like his game za Nice game.
00:35:32
He takes his good shot selection.
00:35:35
Doesn't do too much.
00:35:36
Just kind of plays women. His role.
00:35:38
I'm a fan of I'm a fan of E.
00:35:42
I like the chapter meeting E.
00:35:45
Oh, yeah.
00:35:47
If anybody if anybody is gonna tear us up, we have toe work.
00:35:51
If anybody is gonna have a consistent sort of break out, I think it would be Maga Porter Jr if anybody.
00:35:57
Um, because we've seen his shot making ability.
00:35:59
Sometimes again, he gets to his head and his and he just starts shooting. Whatever.
00:36:04
You know, he gets that that light skinned Jack him up syndrome.
00:36:06
But, you know, hey has the ability to hit those big shots so we can't let we can't let their bench out players.
00:36:13
And that's what we saw last game.
00:36:14
Their bench absolutely throttle bars, the rot hold.
00:36:18
We can't have that again, you know, that's I think that's one of the bigger keys that we also have to watch out for.
00:36:25
The Lakers had four offensive rebounds last game, just doing quick math.
00:36:31
3456789 They got outrebounded on the offensive glass 9 to 4 Guam.
00:36:39
The last time I checked, the only bad boy that day that the Nuggets have over £250 is Nikola Jokic, right? Lakers have multiple seven footers that are that, you know are up there in size and girth.
00:36:54
Pause, but just take up space to grab these rebounds.
00:36:59
I think it's the perfect time to bring our Boivin a on because I want toe dive into this whole rebounding conversation.
00:37:06
The Lakers are, by all intensive purposes, one of the best defensive teams in the MBA.
00:37:12
They're one of the best defensive rebounding teams in the NBA, and yet we saw a game in Game three.
00:37:21
We're Anthony Davis.
00:37:23
It doesn't even look really.
00:37:25
When you look at it had two rebounds, the veil McGee had one rebound and Dwight Howard had one rebound.
00:37:33
Someone has to make some sense of it.
00:37:35
I could Onley ask one person to do it, as he always does, coming onto the late night lakeshore pregame show.
00:37:43
We want to bring on the nay kill him, our boy, the top dog in a what's happening? I'm what's up, guys? What's a Ricky? What's a quality I have been doing nothing but laughing at you, making fun of quality for liking Monte Morris.
00:37:58
E got nowhere, man like, Well, he's like, well, actually, like Z o z o.
00:38:14
He played All right, Uh, you played well enough to help him win, but to chime in, you know, always humble and gracious to be here part of part of the pre game with you guys, Uh, you know, very happy.
00:38:26
I hope all the fans enjoy watching you, you guys, because I know I'm always laughing every time I'm tuning into you guys with slander Eso Yeah, as you mentioned Ricki, Um, the rebounding disparity was a big deal in last game, and that was like, the biggest thing that jumped out.
00:38:42
I think for everybody you saw, like, Cassidy Hubbarth Hub Arthur fat around the last time you saw a bunch of ESPN people, national media people like, Oh, my God, I've never seen Anthony Davis. He's 6 ft 11.
00:38:53
How is he? Only got two rebounds.
00:38:55
Unbelievable.
00:38:56
And there was a reason for that.
00:38:58
And so I posted a video a couple a couple of days ago, just kind of giving context to why he wasn't getting rebounds and So, um, you know, a lot of times, the first general answer everybody kept giving is Well, he's out there contesting these threes.
00:39:11
Uh, because somebody has to rotate and contest these threes, They're not just gonna let them take wide open threes.
00:39:16
And so, you know, a long story short.
00:39:19
There was about 25 available rebounds.
00:39:21
So Anthony Davis basically rebounds that.
00:39:23
He could have grabbed because he was on the floor on dso when I took a look at all that tape.
00:39:29
Turns out about 10 of those rebounds he wasn't gonna be able to get because he was a guy trying to defend the shot.
00:39:34
So sometimes it was on the perimeter sometimes.
00:39:37
Yeah, Sometimes he was.
00:39:38
He was trying to block like somebody driving to the room like Millsap would go for a block.
00:39:42
We are Sorry, Elliot.
00:39:43
He blocked him.
00:39:44
But then somebody who grabbed the rebound from behind them.
00:39:46
Right.
00:39:47
Um, and then there are a lot of other situations where the ball just bounced in the opposite direction.
00:39:52
So you saw, like, LeBron get a whole bunch of rebounds.
00:39:54
Rondo get rebounds.
00:39:56
Whose might get rebounds? Um, does that excuse the lack of rebounding Total? No.
00:40:01
But what it does say is the Lakers need to be aware of what what Denver is doing to them.
00:40:06
And what they're doing is they want guys like Jeremy Grant.
00:40:09
They want guys like Tory Craig.
00:40:11
They want guys like Paul Millsap to shoot as quickly as possible from three.
00:40:16
So they keep, uh, Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard out of the paint.
00:40:20
Because if you guys remember in that Rocket Siri's, the whole reason P.
00:40:24
J.
00:40:25
Tucker sits in that corner is so that you have to respect it.
00:40:27
So you gotta either give up the three or you're going to stand in the paint.
00:40:31
And the reason why the Lakers were ableto bottle up the Rockets was because their rotations were so good so that nobody ever had to actually run out to that corner. They were just rotate.
00:40:39
But there will always be somebody at the rim, and, um, Denver is doing the same thing.
00:40:44
Denver is doing the same exact thing.
00:40:45
They just have different personnel.
00:40:47
Instead of guys like Robert Covington and P.
00:40:50
J.
00:40:51
Tucker, they got Nikolai Yokich and Jeremy Grant and Paul Millsap, so it's really just a style style thing.
00:40:57
You know, they started off.
00:40:58
They started off the Siri's game one game to playing that, like, kind of, uh, you know, one on one style running their offense and about half after the halftime point of Game two, um, Denver just went to his own.
00:41:13
And so their entire goal with the zone was to turn the Lakers into a jump shooting team.
00:41:17
And that's how they came back in Game two.
00:41:19
And that's how they were, kind of, you know, giving us a lot of trouble in Game three up until the Lakers probably decided to play defense and and cut cut into that lead.
00:41:27
Um, and they're going to do that again today.
00:41:30
So what they're going to try and do is they're gonna play that zone defense, and they're gonna say, Alright, anybody that wants to take a lap is going to see three people at the room, so you're gonna either take your pass it out to a wide open shooter and we'll take our chances.
00:41:42
And what made last game so difficult? The reason why the Lakers went down, um, is also because we only shot like 23% from three.
00:41:50
And of like, the 26 shots that we took I want to say, like around like 15 or 16 of them were wide open and you just can't do that.
00:42:00
You can't be missing like that.
00:42:02
And granted, you know, we've only had all three games where we shot less than 30%.
00:42:06
Basically hit, like, single digit number of threes we've lost.
00:42:09
So if we shoot like that again, we're probably gonna have ah, very, very tough game.
00:42:14
But what I can ah, positive thing that could share with all the folks there listening is Lakers usually bounced back pretty well from these kind of poor efforts because they're able to identify.
00:42:24
All right, you know, KCP got a wide open shot to tie the game, missed it.
00:42:27
Who's my pump fake for no reason and shorted his shot when they had a chance to tie.
00:42:32
So, you know, like these sort of opportunities, they could fix this stuff like that.
00:42:35
But more than the rebounds, more than shooting more than the offensive defensive scheme, those are all things that I think will correct themselves.
00:42:44
The Lakers effort has to be desperate.
00:42:47
I think we've seen that in like that. Miami in Boston.
00:42:50
Siri's like these.
00:42:51
These are These are the last four teams until the finals.
00:42:54
None of these teams were trying to, you know, go home right now.
00:42:57
They've already come way too far.
00:42:59
So the Lakers have to match that of energy.
00:43:02
And you can't be having Yokich come down the court and just bullying javale all over the court for easy lands and stuff like that.
00:43:07
We can't be doing that.
00:43:08
I e I don't think I've seen anything on the line ups, but I will not be before game time that vocal like to do it right? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
00:43:20
He won't release it early, but I will not be surprised at all if he if he switches out that line up, you know, he may go with that Houston lineup where he put Markieff in.
00:43:28
Yeah, and space it out better for the Lakers about that right now.
00:43:33
I'm glad you're on because I wanted to ask about that.
00:43:36
The natural thought process when you have a big like Yokich is to swap out your line up and get rid of the traffic cone.
00:43:45
That is javale McGee right now and insert the guy that is high energy, high effort and a defender of other centers in Dwight Howard.
00:43:54
But I'm also seeing this, you know, play on.
00:43:58
Maybe we should tap into the Houston lineup, which we also thought might carry over into this.
00:44:04
Siri's where Mark Keith slides in as the four and a D is the fight.
00:44:09
Tell me, what advantage do you think the Lakers have in that lineup as opposed toe? Just go big and we're gonna set our lineup as up against joking specifically.
00:44:18
Yeah, so obviously, if we start Dwight, he's a much more physical guy.
00:44:21
He can kind of stand up Yokich a little bit better when he's trying to go for the post ups.
00:44:25
The downside of doing that, though, is if they want to run the Jamal Murray Yokich pick and roll to start the game.
00:44:32
Dwight's gonna get put on Murray and Dwight's not bad, but Murray's kind of just you know, he's playing with a lot of confidence.
00:44:38
So he's like, I'm worried about what happens with that matchup.
00:44:41
Eso defensively.
00:44:42
It adds more size.
00:44:43
Dwight, so much better lob threat.
00:44:45
He doesn't get lost on the court.
00:44:46
The way JaVale does.
00:44:48
He won't like over Hedge on the Hay won't like, close out so hard that yoga just pump fakes and drives by them.
00:44:54
That kind of stuff doesn't happen, but again, you're spacing is a little bit difficult.
00:44:58
Dwight is a lot threat, but it does kind of take away some of the room that that, uh, what's called Entity Davis and and and Brown get to work with now if you go with the Marquis flying up and what that at least allows you to do is you get to put a D on Yokich to Not if they want to run that pick and roll A.
00:45:16
D is now the guy That's not Murray.
00:45:18
So now you can't go to that to that.
00:45:20
Really, You have to go to your kitchen. The Post.
00:45:22
But then you could do different stuff.
00:45:23
You could try and front them.
00:45:24
You could make it through bad passes, all kinds of stuff.
00:45:26
So there's there's different and obviously, on the offensive end markets in the corner or market at the top of the break, you're getting wide open threes.
00:45:33
Okay? She's not gonna not gonna close out on them.
00:45:35
They're gonna have to change that matchup up.
00:45:36
So there there's a lot of different things.
00:45:40
There's a lot of pros and cons that come with each one of those situations.
00:45:43
It really comes down to what the Lakers are prioritizing if they're prioritizing.
00:45:47
Look, we want this game to be Slope.
00:45:49
We want to grind it out.
00:45:50
We want to beat him up.
00:45:51
Then we can do that.
00:45:52
Well, put Dwight in in for JAVALE.
00:45:54
But the Onley issue is that Yokich is, uh, one of those guys who knows Now he he knows he knows how to.
00:46:02
He knows how to draw fouls that air.
00:46:04
Not fast, you know, And that that could become a problem for the Lakers.
00:46:09
Because even if they Dwight Howard in Javale McGee, because sometimes brain goes neutral, it happens.
00:46:16
It happens.
00:46:17
Yeah, they could play.
00:46:18
They could play five straight excellent plays and then, like two plays in a row, Dwight may draw a foul, and now he's out of the first quarter.
00:46:24
So that that's sort of the issue that the Lakers sort of run into.
00:46:28
And then you then you have to think about do I dip into JaVale McGee now Or do I go to a small volume? So a lot, A lot of different things that happened.
00:46:34
I think the Lakers will be more prepared.
00:46:37
I think there will be a lineup change.
00:46:40
I honestly think it's 50 50.
00:46:42
I don't know if they're gonna go with Markieff and play ADF Center or if they're going to go with Dwight to start the game.
00:46:47
But the most important part out of all of this stuff, the Lakers have to be the aggressor.
00:46:53
They have to be the ones that go out and start throwing punches first.
00:46:56
Because if you lay back and you think that these guys are gonna roll over these air young guys like you if you guys Yeah, yeah, even if you put a pick up somewhere and you're like the young team and the team that's on the court, a bunch of old guys have been playing a couple of games.
00:47:11
You're trying to knock him off the court so you don't get it.
00:47:13
Don't matter if it's LeBron or a D or who it is like you're you're gonna trying to run him off the court.
00:47:17
And so if it's your last game exactly you get up for the Lakers and LeBron.
00:47:23
I mean, if there's nothing else in your career to get up for and, you know, tear your point, this this Nuggets team has kind of now been through the gauntlet.
00:47:32
Multiple years, there's not, you know, this is the last destination, as's faras things that cannot their confidence, they BTK wide letter, right.
00:47:45
The opportunity to beat LeBron James is out of this world.
00:47:51
I don't think they dream about it, right.
00:47:53
So they have to throw away the oh, the Lakers.
00:47:56
They're just going to, you know, overpower them.
00:47:59
Mentally, They don't care.
00:48:00
These kids don't care.
00:48:02
Of all four teams that are remaining, Denver is the team that's playing with house money right now.
00:48:07
Nobody expected him to get to this point.
00:48:08
They didn't expect them to beat the Clippers.
00:48:10
They were down to the Jazz.
00:48:11
So they thought, The Jazz, We're gonna win that Siri's.
00:48:13
So when you play against a team that's playing with house money, they'll do anything and everything.
00:48:18
Like even if they think it's a foul, they'll still do it and hope that the refs don't call it.
00:48:22
So.
00:48:23
You have to play with that desperation, they It doesn't matter to them and they're going to be playing free.
00:48:27
Lakers can't be tight.
00:48:29
They gotta keep playing their game.
00:48:30
And so they usually bounced back pretty well.
00:48:32
They have in the playoffs.
00:48:33
And I don't think the Lakers wanted wanted to turn into a seven game series.
00:48:37
So I think it will probably take it Siri's.
00:48:40
So I'm sorry.
00:48:41
So then I got a question for you.
00:48:42
Man s o with.
00:48:44
We've seen Denver have a lot of success with the Murray and Yokich Pick and roll.
00:48:48
Um, we've seen a few different coverages.
00:48:52
We've seen them try and blitz the pick and roll, and then they've been able to eat Yokich, which has then been ableto either He either gets a quick floater, is able to pass it out.
00:49:00
So what? What do you think is the best way to do? Because I saw a few times where they even have LeBron guard Murray.
00:49:05
So when the switch came, it was a simple switch.
00:49:07
You don't Even if the big was out on Murray, LeBron still has a decent, modest sized pause that he could guard.
00:49:13
You get a little bit so and then, even when they switched to the zone as they started to make their their come back a little bit where they were kind of able to trap Yokich in the middle of the floor and kind of make him make a decision and we got a few picks pickups on them.
00:49:26
So I saw a lot of good coverage.
00:49:27
Is in the second half of the game, eh? So what do you think? The Lakers kind of uses their strategy, Um, to kind of defend those things moving forward? Yeah.
00:49:36
So you you you actually brought it up perfectly.
00:49:38
This is another thing that they did in the Houston Siri's that they saw that what Harden was trying to do, what Antonio was trying to do was to get Harden a Nen initial screen.
00:49:48
So he get a better matchup at the top of the three so that he could decide whether you want to drive or shoot over people.
00:49:53
So what Vogel did to start that game is that he would put a d on Russ, and then he would put Braun on hearted.
00:50:01
So any switching action that happened between those guys or anything like that, there's always one of those guys kind of in the vicinity of each other.
00:50:08
So what Vogel could do in this situation is depending on who he plays.
00:50:12
He could put you know, Braun on Murray to start the game and in transition, said, Brawn may not be the guy that picks him up, but in the half court, Braun, maybe the guy that picks him up and that's on Leo.
00:50:24
The way to think of it is sometimes if I if my assignments or set up a certain way, you won't even run that play because you know who's gonna be the person that switches.
00:50:31
So if if by putting Braun on Murray at the beginning of the game means that they don't run any of that pick and roll to start it, then that's an advantage to you, right? And but in the end, um, Green KCP Whoever is the fifth starter, you have to be on top of the role of guys.
00:50:47
You guys said it perfectly.
00:50:49
You can't let Jeremy Grant put 26 on you like that.
00:50:52
You If you do that, you're asking, you can't do that.
00:50:56
And so Lakers have to be the aggressor they'll do different things.
00:50:59
Different matchups, elections.
00:51:01
I hope that they run more zone because and people keep knocking the zone and throwing little jabs that it's like All right, well, ****ing beat it, then, e.
00:51:11
I mean, if you watch, yeah, if you watch.
00:51:14
The zone has worked for Denver in terms of like slowing down, not the Lakers offense, but slowing down like the weight like that.
00:51:20
You could see like the brain processing of the guys on the court, like it's a little bit sore because everybody's worried about where everybody is that in the zone.
00:51:27
But you see it in the Miami Syria's you see in the Boston, Siri's everybody is running zone defense.
00:51:32
You gotta either make these shots over me, or you're gonna have to finish through a bunch of people and maybe draw fouls or whatever it is.
00:51:36
So it Z.
00:51:38
If the Nuggets run zone, the Lakers have to collapse it.
00:51:41
And if they collapse the zone, our shooters gotta make their shots.
00:51:44
That's how you beat the zone s.
00:51:46
Oh, well, you know, as always, I'm a superstitious guy, so I'm gonna be doing my rosaries before the game starts.
00:51:53
But You know, I've got confidence in our guys that they're gonna be, uh, you know, there'll be more prepared.
00:51:58
Um, it seems like they may be took the foot off the gas.
00:52:01
That last game on Denver really capitalized on it.
00:52:03
So hopefully you know, they take it seriously.
00:52:06
Obviously, this time? Absolutely.
00:52:09
The night we so appreciate.
00:52:11
Every time you stop on can't get you out of here without admitting Lakers picking up the w tonight.
00:52:17
Correct? Yes.
00:52:18
I think they went tonight. Okay.
00:52:20
All right.
00:52:21
Oh, now, selfish thing.
00:52:23
I bet that LeBron would score over 27 points.
00:52:28
Well, what's the what's the What's the number? 27.
00:52:31
That's tough thing you did.
00:52:36
26 a half or 27 a half.
00:52:38
27 a half.
00:52:39
This'll this'll.
00:52:42
Okay, let me see something.
00:52:43
Let me just check something real quick.
00:52:45
Okay? Since I'm here, I'm gonna get this number.
00:52:48
How many times gambling? A segment sponsored by Nike.
00:52:53
All right.
00:52:54
All I'm going to tell you is your either barely going to make that number barely going to be O or or LeBron is not gonna come close and he's gonna have a triple double of the win.
00:53:08
That's that's all I could tell you.
00:53:10
I really, really can't get his numbers have been, um, the bronze style of play in the playoffs is probably not friendly to gambler.
00:53:19
I would assume it's not friendly the gamblers, but he's been playing like within the waves of the offense.
00:53:26
He doesn't need to put up 30.
00:53:28
He's not gonna put up three the last two games.
00:53:30
He had to put up a lot of points because they need help in the first half of Game two and then, you know, they couldn't get any.
00:53:35
Nobody could get anything going in Game three.
00:53:36
So, um, the fact that the Nuggets were playing his own defense, Ricky means that you may get that.
00:53:42
I just need the **** you three.
00:53:45
But if LeBron decides to be like that cerebral guy, that's just picking him apart with passes and his team for making shots, then I mean he may not. I don't know.
00:53:55
I don't want to make you a no, it's fine, man. That's why I asked.
00:53:58
I didn't need you.
00:53:59
I need you to also be my height man and my bucket of cold water at the exact same time.
00:54:04
And that's exactly what you did, man.
00:54:05
So I appreciate you for that.
00:54:07
Maybe next time I'll pick your brain before I lock in my parlor.
00:54:10
That's a one, man E.
00:54:14
I was like, Okay, come on.
00:54:19
It's about a win win Would be a win win would be, You know, Lakers win, You hit your money line or your over under or whatever it is, and everybody's happy.
00:54:30
But we want that win.
00:54:32
First and foremost, I don't care if LeBron scores for you, so I mean, I kind of care e I've been California.
00:54:42
I can't even gavel, bro.
00:54:43
I saw.
00:54:44
So I've got to put up the money 2500 on a $10 bit.
00:54:46
You guys can't hope outside and you can't gamble on sports.
00:54:53
I don't know what the state of California is going on, brother.
00:54:55
We send our prayers from the Chicago land area.
00:54:59
You give us the good weather will say energy and sports gambling.
00:55:03
So appreciate you coming out, fellas, talk to you. Soon. Go, Lakers man.
00:55:11
All right, That's our boy.
00:55:13
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
00:55:15
Yeah, yeah.
00:55:16
Please tell me you didn't bet.
00:55:18
Single digits on that.
00:55:19
You didn't bet triple digits on Bron? No, of course not.
00:55:23
Quantity.
00:55:24
Okay, of course not, dog.
00:55:25
My bets trust.
00:55:27
It's my bets Are my intuition plus that little carrot of how much I could actually win with it.
00:55:35
I bet $30 that LeBron James would score 28 points, and, uh, Jacksonville's running back Robinson has 70 yards or more.
00:55:45
I bet 30 e can come 1 75.
00:55:49
, come on.
00:55:51
You know what I'm saying? Like, I saw my boy read Who put a g up? I just checked my retweets my boy.
00:55:58
Reed Johnson.
00:56:00
Oh, he put a grand up That Jacksonville is running back would have over 70 yards.
00:56:06
And I was like, Oh, my God, He's like, Honestly, let me tell you why.
00:56:09
And I'm like, Okay, I'll tie that into a parlay.
00:56:11
That's our spot right out of this.
00:56:14
Great. A.
00:56:15
Because you do it to You do? Yeah, but I do.
00:56:18
I do the safe bets.
00:56:20
What they going to you tonight? What does it say? Um e o right now, probably a d.
00:56:29
You know, I don't know.
00:56:31
80/28 a half.
00:56:33
I do that before I do, LeBron they forced.
00:56:36
They s**** feed a d they s**** feed the guy.
00:56:39
So I'm probably going that way for this game.
00:56:42
I mean, I don't know who Jeremy Grant.
00:56:46
I mean, I don't know.
00:56:47
I don't know a lot of these air Skerry.
00:56:50
The player bets themselves.
00:56:51
A lot of them are kind of scary because I've never really dipped into player bets like that.
00:56:56
My first one is on LeBron James.
00:57:00
Well, I mean, I'm gonna be a little jaded, e I might never do it again.
00:57:05
Here's how dedicated I am to riding the wave of how much athletes can win me money.
00:57:10
I said yesterday our last week for Thursday Night Football.
00:57:14
I had a nice little Bangles parlay with the Miami Heat that hit.
00:57:17
I said that Joe Burrow comes back and covers to spread.
00:57:20
I'm buying a Joe Burrow jersey.
00:57:23
I'm tweeting the photo, not Jersey a shirt.
00:57:27
He There was a Tiger King shirt that was just Joe Burrow on it on that.
00:57:31
See, I had to cop it.
00:57:32
I'll put it on my on my Twitter feed, but a better ride with this people and LeBron James, my people right now.
00:57:39
So we're in tune.
00:57:42
He could win me some money tonight.
00:57:44
I didn't bet on the outcome of the game, Kwame.
00:57:46
I just bet LeBron well scored 28 points.
00:57:53
That's too much.
00:57:54
Ask a little bit, man.
00:57:57
He plays with a D.
00:57:59
This is calves Bron.
00:58:00
Sure, but he plays Anthony Davis, man trying to get him going anyways.
00:58:05
Predictions for tonight club.
00:58:07
Give me Give me a Lakers score and tell me besides who? LeBron James makes an impact on the offensive.
00:58:15
Ah, score.
00:58:16
I'm bad at scores.
00:58:17
Uh, let's go.
00:58:20
I'm gonna go 1 17 109 Lakers.
00:58:25
Okay.
00:58:26
Was it ever endow using what was ever in doubt? The Lakers win.
00:58:31
Will the game ever be in doubt? Um, maybe in the first quarter, But outside of that, probably I think they put I think they really put their foot on the gas and keep it on because they should know by now, this team can make comebacks.
00:58:47
They're not afraid, And I think all those little bit those little nuggets So what I did there, all those little nuggets, we'll give the Lakers, you know, a reason to really go out there and show what they're made of and show that we're a championship caliber team.
00:59:03
We're here that we're winning this thing.
00:59:06
Hey, man to that brother.
00:59:07
I got the Lakers.
00:59:08
I got the Lakers won 20 the Denver Nuggets 109 Ooh! 21 20.
00:59:18
No, that's too much.
00:59:20
That's a lot.
00:59:21
That's way too much for the Lakers right now.
00:59:23
But it's like if Danny Green becomes a contributing member of society, it knocks down two more threes.
00:59:31
We could do it.
00:59:32
All right? ****ing That's probably 1 17 toe 101 Lakers win by 16.
00:59:37
How about that? Okay, that works.
00:59:40
I pulled that from stole My by total.
00:59:44
You guys will bet on that total.
00:59:45
We both picked the same one.
00:59:48
Yeah.
00:59:49
