Mugs so let me just get this straight the team that has won three of the last four NBA titles in the essentially a swapped out JaVale McGee. For bode cousins that's exactly what happened then sign. Blow because and put it awarded into it's a little more border cousins wasn't getting any offers out there memory at the Achilles injury I think it was right after the also arbor all star break those and it was in late January so. He he had that Ed had no offers is pretty bummed out about it and ends up doing the mid level exception for five point. Three million dollars that's all Golden State is paying for boogie it's a way to play that year play well enough. And have a chance of another deal if you want to do another one and done it could be gators tent here he did this two times you don't get more than Max salary again we get in all that the bottom line is. That the warriors became the sixth team in NBA history and first since the 7576. Celtics to have five. All stars. From the previous season brits say again. NBA history and the first. Since 27576. Celtics by the way that's he won the NBA to shock her organs into over the suns to have five all stars from the previous season gold uniform on you know nobody comes already was an all star. As well I mean are you. Kidding. Me is it over right now did did the warriors win the title. And dogs are you ready favorite in his elbow cousins I mean it content by the way. Who wants to own needs through yet impress people yes you get that big deal now he is coming and never really the play. Offseason never over while never been in the playoffs as a matter fact he has the second. Most amount of points.

He has a chance to ease back you do this because it is pretty good but he is improving mode trying get that big deal. Yeah all. Holy smokes I mean. It has sorted and do they pick a bogey cousins and the lakers pick up another player can't shoot that's what I was oh the lakers as a players and and the lawyers say hold my dear oh yeah that's really what they've done while one last thing on just how broad. The visits. The warriors will be the first team now and NBA history. Just three players whoever's 25 points a game the previous year step curry Kevin Durant and bode dozens. I mean it's just it's it's an insane situation is there's a cool story out how you know pure gold states to ask him yeah I how we ended up there you know what was happening to him in free agency and how we ended up that that would get to but. Suffice it to say gold states in which yeah so we'll just see how this plays out you might as turning point grieving the Larry O'Brien trophy in Europe how are we continue. We have baseball and red Porsche sold got the best of Max Scherzer on the mound and on the plate how bond yields to. When did that drive the let's check out there because. Okay. We want smaller badly. I would have worse now okay you. No president never happened before on the real sorts atop the secondary there's two out okay. And so the match they won't they intentionally walk and number eight hitter Jackie Bradley junior now the bases are loader import a bloated Marcella comes up. It's 02 autumn yup you're already to come to. Scherzer any rising 96 mile ultra fast ball and clear the British used as you mentioned on scherzer who by the way. The two of them spent five years together as a member of the tiger from 2010. To 2014. Yeah. Proportional DIE ease yet they won with 56 lifetime average had its first ever extra base at his only other RBIs came on June 12 in 2009. When he recorded a pair of runs scoring singles against the pirates so. This guy doesn't hit he took an 020 count and drove pushers are fastball. Doug to clear the bases loaded bases scherzer to not going well for him know as of late view the Mets have lost for the last five he's lost his last. Four starts he's not get a lot of run support. They've lost for the past five in which. I'm scherzer started in those five games he's allowed a total of ten earned runs Washington's. Struggling offense only scored seven times in those. Three losses so he's not pitching that well not get me offered to production when he's been out there. And but the the story here of course knowledge just to Heisman Paula here's the other thing too scherzer says we played together I know you can hit I've seen him hit. He hits 156000. His well Zealand beat me now if you ever president batting practice because he's clearly not hitting. What he's what he's had to swing the lumber but he did in very impressive fashion. Last night in helping the Red Sox get the win over the net. Well it's time for a World Cup blocked. Ed is horrors for me. First of all Brazil beat Mexico again not that that's not a surprise MX George your team of four for our fantasy drafts here. It was Brazil which what is at the desk junior bastard here and Gavin against UI and Mexico now they have never beaten. Brazil and WorldCom LA and out of old four and one all time in World Cup play against Brazil. But I thought they look good I thought there are going to be strong. And know. That's a seventh time they've been a seventh Mexico's been eliminated and a 60167. Straight World Cup so yeah this one. Didn't go well for you at all but Brazil is expected to yes it's one right yeah I mean they're rounding into shape they're looking like one of the better teams are exposed like a lot of powers this year are not really been strong. Results like and then the second became the second game unreal I had I had Belgium US Japan. Holy smokes. You were looking good in this Japan up tube mill pop to hill game and then with what about a minute left in stoppage time goal a minute not a minute ten seconds yeah I'd start argue our starter with a yes so as though this is what it's tied at two now and looks like we're going to the first extra possession or extra extra period and this happened. They scored with a lot it's going to Germany Sweden game yes they scored with about seven seconds left in stoppage you know you YouTube you had to see it it would just unreal the goalies started to break your role while right in the middle field and it was just it looked like a fast break let. Don't go no one even tried to stop the ball you don't believe. Credible source UC UC than ninety it was a 93 like 53 unit and there was a plus for souls going an idea for now there are going to be allowed to finish our present and anyway. But I mean it was a lot last second shot it was beautiful. Up up the field oddly beautiful and I know it was fantastic. And I took 4 points away I am still lead were 48 points. Mike in DeVon have 44 because of their win for Brazil. Arguing the staff got nothing you have 36 and the staff has 33 I am having commanding lead or not really. Absolutely Japan had a two nothing lead but they have not protect all parent. Maybe they should have used ADT protecting the lead brought to you by eighty T considering on security consider this. For a 140 years eighties he is help stop more crime than any other home security company. Visit ADT dot com to learn more and of course we have more acts in the World Cup today. The round of sixteen comes to a close of a matchup of Cormier and England had to root out I've got England so of course they're going to lose up. Colombia is looking to advance in the quarters in consecutive turns the first time. England is seeking its first World Cup quarters appearance since 2006. Yet they are your two teams in the end my niece is I think it'd get be back in the game at 10 o'clock eastern game is sweet mets' Mike endeavor and against your Switzerland team in the first World Cup match up between the two countries how cool is that yet that is pretty cool Swedish streets and knocked ironic each of the last four. World Cup appearances but not advanced. Past this round of sixteen since 1994. Switzerland has not reached the World Cup quarterfinal since 1954. When it did so. As a holds so that will close out this round and we'll pick it all began fared the worst side of this is ridiculous where you're were in France and and Brazil. And and Belgium all ports by the way I have three yes he's so you know what you're pretty good there and really did you I started the knock out round with five of the six teams did. And three of my departed the knock knock knock out as good the keyword is no problem Spain would just pass it some more sort of tried to shoot well they test really bad pass really well and they passed our horse style point to be done really well exactly so -- better -- Mexico I had a little hope for bit -- till I believe. And then the manager made a ton of mistakes and when they're out in the Japan are really wasn't counting on at all to know until the unreal and they spit the bit you know all all in on England and all announce what solidified any chance yet to get back into the sternum. Our goal do we go presented by the rest concerns. Protecting your small business is a big deal cover what you work so hard for. Visit progressive commercial dot com and of course the big news that came down yesterday once again proving. That in many ways the NBA's free agency is better in the regular season. Because let's be honest one of the reasons the warriors have struggled the last few regular seasons. They're trying to find a way to get through it to get right meg claim their birthright which would be another NBA championship the big news yesterday. You had real Rajon Rondo going to the lakers won't get into that a little bit later. And then out of nowhere bogey cousins comes up and signs the middle level exemption to play with a Golden State Warriors Marc spears and undefeated on how this actually went down. He told me he got zero offers. So we certainly confusing and certainly hurt he said about 5 AM in the morning in Vegas. He got on his balcony thought about everything called his agent Jerry McConnell wolf tomorrow. It started talking about different scenarios and one of the scenarios was going to the lawyers. So early in the morning he called Bob Meyers the words general manager talked him Bobble sees that he was certainly shot. That the markets caught on. There was it just didn't take in the mid level exception then after that to Marcus that he spoke with Stefan curry he spoke with Kevin Durant. He spoke with dream on dream these uses former Olympic teammates USA basketball teammates. Their excitement. About having him on the team of really lifted his spirits and really made him want to come. So they get bode cousins is an over guys like well I mean are you serious it if he is. Gets healthy and again while he says. He's healthier will start off in training camp there's no need for that I mean there's zero need. Images bring him along right you don't let him get healthy they're there they're in pretty good chip but I because you look at the list of an Achilles injuries let's look at a few players. Adult or that Kobe Bryant. Now Kobe did carry his after really after his prime. But you know his average one way down. That year of his injury averaged 47 point two game went down eighteen points after that out brand tore his at 28 years old by the way. A book he's going to be I think 27. Million actress ever create next month 847 next month. Elton Brand tore his at 28 years old torn Achilles in the 2007 offseason however he still. Got a five year eighty million contract eighty million dollar contract in free agency 2008. An incredible blood cells and a bargain these you know again he had averaged twenty intend before the injury after thirteen and 728. Net yet okay Isiah Thomas are ruptures Achilles in 1994. And effectively ended his her a guy who didn't really. Affect our career wise or point tries to Dominique Wilkins Tor is in 1992. Miss the rest of the season was ready at the start. Amid 9293 campaign didn't bothers game at all. He averaged 29 part almost thirty points a game this season after at the age of 33 so he's of one you can look at it while it didn't affect him much the other guys that did. Is that that you need to see here is how is it going to affect. This big listened 611 to seven he's got a lot of weight coming down in awe that that's a tough tough injury. But as I said they have time and he has that mentality of okay. They get any offers easel ticked off to war is an offer many thing. And nor on size Joseph is Randall now from who were saga from the lakers. So he's he's got a lot to prove to get his money in and it just which you don't want a great player with a little bit of an attitude. Most often to proven motivated and yeah he's never been in the post season so the question then becomes when will he be ready we all think he won't be ready until probably around January maybe February. But according to Marc spears cousin says it's going to be a lot sooner. A lot of people expect him to be out to the all star break. At December. You know when I talked to him in couple months ago he said he planned and expected to be ready. During training camp he told me that wasn't a free agents employees that he expected to be ready and I sit. For what's to deal announced that I expect to be ready when the warriors start training camp. Which would definitely be some super medical science there but if you watch him on line watch his videos. He's shown that he's running already on the treadmill also. He expects to be ready in camp. Bull why my my point is what bush welcomes your player man that that's you to do you want to play you wanna get back to you wanna play so it's going to be Golden State that says. Slowdowns bump over gala let's hold on here as a player completely understand that running back on your field of play and splashing when nobody's asking you were without a doubt at all so I can understand from his side that's why from gold states they're just connect through pull the reins on him take you got time my friend got time will be intercede thing here is. Let's assume that they take it conservative route right right what does that do for this team and Rick Yorker. Often the Bleacher Report actually says Orman and our body sing and this is wrapped up now going this may not be the best thing that the warriors could have done this. And more of a gamble. On the warriors part and it is on DeMarcus Cousins because. What we saw with them last year. Is that they needed depth they needed more from their bench. And they just use their taxpayer mid level exception five point three. Could you gone in and and gotten another player can still talk Tyreke Evans or is that out out the window because of the DeMarcus Cousins. And if you're not gonna get content until February and you don't know what you're going to get when you get content back in February. It could pay off in a big way. But another way. They may have shot the shot that they actually to. Deepen their bench and there's still a question of exactly what they'll. Mean I guess there's always going to be questioned command larger breasts but. I I like this race I listen right and if you're no rest nor or they say hi I would be willing to your rehab the best team yeah and I understand the depth part I get it. Bought I do I I'd roll the dice on this one yeah I'd have to it's a tough injury I get it. But you have the ability to take your time even though the player won't wanna take this type. You have the ability to take your time book he still going to be in the prime of his personality on the tail nag me I think and I had an and the one thing he has going form. Which is kind of weird. He's the anti warrior he doesn't have almost playoff my problem you're going to be right this season's overall there really isn't a game maybe a series is all out in the end of bode dozens almost. Season is planning a vacation now again this year had knocked out thirty were have been in the playoffs for a dozen or has made it to the plastic belt he could pretty much by his vacation by the end of the regular season. That is correct you'll see what happens going forward boogie. And then there's the idea of the lakers aren't they they're making moves but are they at the right moves for the player that they're sort of centering the salt thing around. Always good windows and window I very wait your Mike Cole sear. Go doing go is Peter radio and ESP into presented by progressive insurance all phone guess we'll join us on the show opens all performance line. We've been talking a lot about the move bode causes of the warriors we got you can talk to those in the one in her flowers dot com to order Theodore or. Call in on her voicemail ended 605065505. 8605065505. And yea barely they have already been calling him. Did you take from Cary, North Carolina and I just heard about the media are Golden State warrior still on that John asked our staff they had where democracy is all of them released and has struggled through another season of not examine every single good players there on the planet X to close around. That was really really good that was fantastic. Really by military North Carolina shut up that's where we put the Jimmy V terminal was -- that's really good though it is good news to Jeff kind of where they tweet says we can only hope W cousins just what that franchise needs to get over the top of a good missing that final piece that final piece of the puzzle meanwhile while anchors of course are going the opposite way. They took in LeBron James they did you filming anyway may be JaVale news that this move was coming and that's why he bounced so quickly quote from golds and cousins got a long way to go to take over board JaVale McGee did the policy I don't think you miss a shot shot 67% in the files on him he had to miss he was unbelievable -- in the finals JaVale doing JaVale things tongue in cheek if course yes but it's also time for straight talk brought to buy straight talk wireless best phones best network's new contract so they got. LeBron obviously they got JaVale McGee they also went out and signed. Rajon Rondo the Rondo of course has played very well at times but some people are questioning was this the right idea. And the right player to put around LeBron James here is our own Brian what two hours. LeBron respects the hell out of Rajon Rondo when LeBron talked in the finals about how you need to have intelligence. To beat the warriors he can't just have good players and you want to have competitors and he is kind of imply that not everybody pilot was a competitor. Rajon Rondo is one of the smartest most competitive players you can have but if we've learned anything. In the last fifteen years of watching LeBron James play. You've got to have shooters on the court with them they begin though with where does he have to have space. You you have to stretch the floor the best the cat ever wore was when he had four shooters on the court with on the Miami Heat. Pioneered small ball in ways that we with Chris Bosh moving out. They've signed guys in the last three days none of them can shoot that seems like that's important might. Yeah it misses. I listened. You don't want to play were guys that are competitors don't make mistakes draws are Rondo will definitely know the score at the end game also true we can confirm that one I absolutely think he will. But he doesn't shoot very well I mean and so. Here we go future second the spectrum sounder readily already yep I'm excited this past season the lakers rank last in the NBA in field goal percentage on pull up shots. What do you ninth in the NBA feel low percentage on catch and shoot place. They were also the second worst three point shooting team in the NBA by percentage. And with this moves I'll tell LeBron James. They didn't get any better her. So you know were ordered a key goal this out. A factor of field goal percentage is based is similar to field goal percentage. But it just it for the additional value of three pointers okay. So there were seven current lakers who attempted at least 400 shots last year idol LeBron James every other player. This is where they ranked in effective feel overall percentage LeBron rank eighteenth. The top person on the and this is out of 220 players yes going down the list Kyle crews were in 94 okay. Caldwell Pope 96. Raw Rajon Rondo 114. Branding him a 160 film and Lance Stephenson a 194 and bring our career Alonso ball at 216 just six blocks away. Worst in the league so all. Man I mean it doesn't sound great now of what all it may be here are banking on the LeBron will make everybody better may be they are didn't make Clarkson and what that much better. In Cleveland this pressure and again here at the career three point percentages. Of the lakers now around LeBron James. Our Caldwell Pope 34 and a half percent Rondo thirty point 931%. One so 30%. Stephenson. A 30% coups and a 36%. And Ingram 33%. Is not enough what what. What they're hoping god is uncontested three because you know broad led by most assists opportunity I'm uncontested threes yet a 195. Albums sell. He's giving guys you know with what he does the open shot goal get that open shot three and two they can do but right now they just don't have. The great shooters and again listen. I don't think anybody believes are setting up the team for this year for championship remember these are all one year deal correct are preparing themselves firfer a big summer next summer as well as Gregory Johnson laid out yeah exactly so we we need to take all these with a grain of salt by saying what are that this is a championship team that they're supposedly getting together here in LA. No there certainly going to be would pay more competitive than they were. The past few years but you know but yeah as far as a championship team. We've had people yesterday saying third fifth heard the call for Tom Tennant and woes boast buyer they thought to be a Ryan Howard said the same thing behind you know obviously Golden State used in. Why crime and I mean you know. Got New Orleans you've got Utah. You jaws going to be really good I mean I I think that Portland chemistry and they got there. The other overthrown at least percentage points off of three point shooting just hours in the league average. Is 36% price that's average. Right now the way this team is constructed they have one guy that shooting. Average of three point when a scout who. Everyone also shooters we talked about below what would be the average bird for the regular NBA player to make threes is that enough. I well again let let's see how they all played together let's see how a much LeBron can help out by giving them better even better looks. At the threes are kind of ball we're gonna play you're still looking for those younger players again right now they're gonna be on the roster to develop them after net brigade into next off season. How many of them will be there comedies when your contract guys will be drawn you're TO a completely different team by next year as well salt. Enjoy the first year of LeBron it's gonna be a hell of a lot better. For the lakers and has been in the past have to be a lot more exciting they'll be very competitive and Adobe let's see how competitive they'll be in the playoffs were as were already looking ahead. And would be fun to watch and then look for possibly different team here don't come 2019 but all eyes are gonna be on Golden State every grown Omar god seriously doubt what you cousins now playing their healthy succumb. Yeah and the other thing is a mean look they're stacked this team with players that can't shoot so essentially what they're doing a whole strategy cotton. It pays off for Dario because it doesn't look like it's working or does look like the number suggests it won't work however right right there are things that Rajon Rondo brings the table and nobody knows Rajon better. General Paul Pierce together they won a championship with the Celtics here's Paul's take on what Rondo can bring to be LeBron lakers. I mean better IQ's when you're surrounded with the greatness there Rondo bring things we've got us for the take pressure off LeBron he understands. You know how to play without a great players. Go to balls ball machines has been used. Over the last few seasons over most of his career and doesn't get older and basing these guys like Rondo because. You know we have to find different ways to score make life easier on themselves so you have a guy like Rondo. Definitely improve things are few. So so look look at the glass half full yet a ball that you get Rondo and you get LeBron to unbelievably high IQ basketball guys and young players right. If these guys should be able to learn a two on. Pawn of on court basketball. From these two guys have the IQ of of the game you know the subtleties of the game we just learned. They want to if they want to absorb this isn't great opportunity for them to watch these to learn from these to ask questions. Of these to an end man. There are their maturity level could really skyrocket. This year I think got a huge thing. Yeah I wish I'd that is. Roger Rondo we seeing no. Explode little red. As Stevenson we've seen earlier as well that's an ailment he has his own separate category that is that can be an interesting locker armored and around the young players like that as well also coming Gallup a lot of positive for these young players to learn. Our former Rondo is an obviously LeBron to the world what you'll be could be a very interesting. Locker room as well. Well listen. Any in any locker was JaVale is going to be interesting now you throwing Lance Stephenson the whistle blower the your blower. Until until bronze here and then you have Rajon who has known do we know go off the rails low but it times and all this IQ was great I agree they're gonna be smarter gonna make better decisions at the end of day. Also got a on the bucket. Also argue in the bucket for them to win they've got to find a way to get these guys to be better shooters and that is the only thing that's gonna really make this team. Be a little bit better if it if LeBron is not doing everything. I want a great sports night last night no doubt about it and window what are Dey wanna show what kind.

I know that makes the other we went through this last year. When all the NBA and NFL players are like oh my god look at this small man match. That's a league look at the revenue they're making look at the amount of players are splitting it with bill mean they're able to do that. You know in in football or 53 guys ahead as opposed to when you know 1215 guys in the NBA. Yeah and the worst part about it is this is the time with the NFL players. Halftime on their hands so it's not like working out now folks and it up there actually watch a white one up we got what he got how cautious and he can make too many. Now what we talked about a year. So I don't know very tough time for all Gary indeed they're the last number and he is being number they're gonna get every single pay more power to anybody man grabbed a money grab all they can't cash while. You pretty user uses this system you know could we talked about the system if you decide to Paul George of why did you do that deal well he did because after two years again do this Oklahoma City can do that boom all of a sudden it can be seven for two or ninety. Man you manipulate anyway you can't get it to work for you take it. Take where were run with it up that's what we celebrate in this country the freedom to have those situations and instead. Financial independence for the rest of their lives as were on for the July even let's get into. What's trending now and we're starting talk about it but it is the fact that bode cousins recovering now Achilles has agreed that one year five point three million dollar deal. With the Golden State Warriors who won three of the last four NBA tip so again this is a guy who you know what free agency who start I was like okay he's going to be a name out there but he is coming off the Achilles it happened right around the all star break you'll after the all star break. And eating get any offer you a little bummed out about that that he had no offers for this thing. And started if they called his agent I guess early early 1 morning and started going over scenarios of what he could do. To try get himself back in the mix or what was the best course of action bright and it turned out to be the mid level exception. You know five point three million dollars order net to Golden State to Golden State. Throughout the guys can take its time getting back even though he says he'll be back for camp with the Achille who with the Achilles. They can take its time sir and I you have a 611270. Pounder. Who already has a bit of an attitude plays with a chip on issues never been no playoff has never been a play out and is motivated to play well to get that big deal. It's only smokes well again one of six teams now to play a season with five all stars it's the first team since 7576. Celtics. To have those five all star from the previous season. Oh that's Celtics team by the way. They won the NBA championship just as Golden State older and let's. Put a cherry on the Sunday the warriors now become the first team in NBA history to have three players. We have averaged 25 points per game the previous season staff curry Kevin Durant. And bogey cousins while the only issues when vote you will ready Jack says in training camp I'd probably be a little more conservative I would be surprised if we didn't see him until after. The start of the new yeah which is OK I mean you know he's gonna wanna get back out that the teams are gonna wanna polarized his support group like his agent deeply trust need to get easier soon dude. Welcome back early now to really affecting you take your time you look great from. From. The all star break on on through playoffs and then you're gonna make your money new and again that don't skip steps ask Andrew Luck about skipping step up and it was a problem with him recovered from a shoulder. Clearly the DeMarcus Cousins deal is what everybody's talking about brought to you by Lowe's. Pros in the know start of lows go to Lowe's for pros dot com for details. And in a way Mike we had NBA commissioner Adam silver almost week for the NBA draft him. And in a way he was talking about. What happened last night. When he was all of those two weeks ago because we you know we talked about the Kevin dripping and people said oh it's terrible for the league web silverware concept that was really an aberration. I get it in terms of calendar and going there. It was a bit of an aberration in our system we had a spike in our captain enabled them to have additional cap room to warriors will tell you that would trigger a way to get it done anyway I don't know. But even if Kevin Durant hasn't gone the Golden State and that's the State's stated Oklahoma City or let's say go on to another team maybe he's. You quickly what about a third team that would have been much better any team that has Kevin Durant will reach but then you still 27 other teams. And felt you know you gotta give Golden State there do it and it and I've said repeatedly that also celebrate excellence. So anyway we get another aberration not a slight your shift and you're right disagree. That was important cousins was a normal free agent human being gold state critical to form correct this is one of those where you can make all the rules that you watch. When it comes down to a player's choice he could've waited and waited and maybe got more from somebody else maybe got more years more money maybe not. But he chose. Mid level exception he shows. Today five point three mil which that team could affording Golden State and then said OK this is a great place for me to gulf. To get healthy to look good and make my money so again I mean look look at coli letter Y wanted to make 219. Million dollars in San Antonio. And he may leave bright he wants out Aimee beyond that and won't make that 219. Million dollar so you can have anything set up that you want but if a player chooses. To. Elite tour nineteen mill on the table or be say you know what. I'm not gonna get that deal now so I'll take the mid level exception which a lot of teams can afford and and I can basically pick my team and you know about that. There isn't and look people saying always the warriors again look. If you what happens when you win people wanna come there okay. It rejected or reason people wanna go there we say the same thing about knowing what how many times of the patriots signed guys for less money that they would go get somewhere else because they want that ring in oh by the way. Being the pay the patriots being the Super Bowl every other year hasn't hurt the NFL. The college football playoffs have not hurt by Alabama winning it every other year. We always complain or some people complain but we'd like dynasties Mike we like traditions we wanna see the blue bloods and that's one of the problems in college basketball we don't know only the players as are all one and done we can't celebrate the dynastic qualities with the. What we're like to do a diocese is real love him on the way up the women there for a little while member or tired of no matter where wanna watch to see him get beat correctly you're torn backed down. And that's where radar but I mean this is anybody get gonna. Questioned boarded cousin for old gold and a brilliant decision do it has never been in the playoffs. His own team into war won the last tumors on New Orleans didn't off from a deal squat to you don't anybody gonna say oh we should go to should go somewhere else to try and beat them I know the good Kevin Durant thing it's like. You just had a chance to be immediate and so you joined them. What is not and nobody should say should think award to this guy for this man he did what he felt he needed to do to put himself in the best position. He's got to make five million dollars is more than likely away and NBA championship and is gonna get like 180 million dollar contract so boogie. You're winning and don't worry about what anybody else assess. Rick yourself got the best of Max Scherzer on the mound and at the plate facing his former tigers teammate Rick torso. Palmary the wrong one they are that's our strong over I'm earlier then we'll move on this day. Yet this is much better round of sixteen in the World Cup comes to a close today with a match of a Colombian England Moscow. Columbia looking to advance of the quarterfinals. In consecutive tournaments for the first time meanwhile the lions England seeking its first World Cup quarter since 2006 and I need them back. I reduce our standings at this point because Belgium got the win over Japan yesterday I picked up four point Japan a game a team that you had it was no this game to Belgium with the unbelievable. Comeback scoring has. The stoppage time was his was counting out I have 48 points Mike and Devin have 44 tray as 36 and the staff has 33. So today Colombia the staff has Colombia trade you have England and Switzerland have a shot here and US Switzerland and Mike can Devin have Sweden that's the 10 o'clock game at 2 o'clock game is Colombia and being on the old we all sat. With our. With our our lap I have I have three on the less I don't know Poodle you are so happy SI do your rate in France will play Brazil and Belgium will play and then the other side of the bracket will be filled out the rest of the way today. So that all the games I think pick up again one on Friday I believe after today celeb couple lays off gains pick up again on Friday listen. I I started really strong here I had five teams in the knockout round. And three have been knocked out I don't know what a game so I'm down to these two on down to England. And I'm down to Switzerland and eventually if they both when the play each other and I'll be down to one that that Belgium Japan game. Was in crowd is so it's it's a book buzzer beater in soccer. So what's breathing before that some of the stops Japanese goal was making were saying on believable. What he was doing and then the comeback by Belgium. Was was out there was there was basically how the walk offered it as as time was. Was winding down again they were to got that play even if went past the time it's kind of the time is kind of flexible yum. Everything seems to be sort of flexible regards look absolutely great play get that guy game winner Belgium moves on. I'm so happy that Belgium got the game winner and they move. Well Kay Hagan beats don't do this. Impersonal don't steal the thieves that should do this if you steal realistically are so we're not condone inning thieves are saying. If you're going to leave and be a part of thievery. Dopey this freaking stupid yeah basically that's what we're saying so floral long spurred a off Florida this was an Arkansas yes. She stopped at a filling station and Pine Bluff, Arkansas after she fell to take she went to the store which you went into the store. Some guy Al went into work hard to upper hand back. And he had an accomplice who stole some things in the gas station they sped away. Carry up to associate her handbag taken out of her car with her credit cards probably present credit cards are drivers vice audio two days later. Once heard who's a waiter was waiting tables at Shannon's restaurant and diner just to block. From the gas station. Two blocks. Of one of our customers. Handed her credit card to papers fruit. Witch doctor to register your gender double take you look at the card and so are all your name on the card. Idiotic thief went to a restaurant tour blocks are more restore handbag and huge credit card the waitress who was serving her. He had anyways arrested very she called the cops was arrested and was found honest person and in the car all her stuff including drivers why did you ever picture on it. Dude I mean seriously first of all. You're a dude and the license plate I mean the credit card has. A woman's woman's name to my wanna I wanna try to avoid that part of it to begin with. And then you have all the rest of the stuff in the cart now we're not dealing with a rocket scientist here okay. Officers arrived before the 21 eurocard could leave handcuff him search him they follow lunch for driver's license Social Security card and several other credit cards on his person. He was Sagan and we can Koznick custody. Driver's license as all due had her picture on the police department said there for Europe think you would have known what she looked like. Yet he still handed her her own credit card you EDT. You know that's just wall or on. This this this is darwinism satisfy all notice small piece that keep that guy locked up for a while telling get the the gray matter is brain stem working on unbelievable. Our goal can we go presented by progressives on insurance getting a quote is easier than ever. And it is going to be harder than ever to get out of the Western Conference unless you're the Golden State Warriors obviously. LeBron LA has made them relevant there's no question they're going to be a better team right the question is are they gonna be good enough to take down this super team in Golden State now that they have. Bode cousins who could be ready by January and have five all stars on the floor at the same time that's a separate discussion but of course. Alas legend to play for the lakers was Kobe Bryant. And Kobe Bryant was on Stephen is mr. yesterday and said the league is better when guys like LeBron or on the lakers because it makes the lakers row. Our biggest closed the lakers for a surge there and top of the car decision to create an energy around the city which I think is extremely important not just the city is well for the league or do we tend to do better. Where in the lakers are they contingent also rooting contingent on really the key market. They not trust them have a player like a bargain year history so much energy and well there's quite Largo Kyle and others now have every good pressure. Pushed them forward sooner rather than later. All of that is true yes yes it is however. With and whose that just came down last night with. Bode cousins going to the warriors are the lakers really front senator okay it got out. The booty sign. We know they just as I wanted to buy this scene it's miserable for the body signing came to salt could what you have to understand is the way the lakers were gonna go this way any your nobody thought they were gonna compete with Golden State anyway correct so so I think we need to put this in kind of all of the contacts that. He signed the warning one deal so after this year to players' option he can tell a big deal somewhere else right Andy gone any problem in time the lakers. One or he may do another one and done again and that tent here for more Wall Street. But the bottom line is you can be gone after this year so one the lakers are really going to try to load that team up for next year. When they are looking to compete with a Golden State team which may be without Klay Thompson right at depth coordinator without Kevin gross under one on one so where would we should kind of while we're saying how much stronger gold stated. The thought was and that's for the whole league the thought was that the lakers weren't gonna compete with them this year so we really need to kind of separate. Those two things I won't say it was still the best team when problem because and the lakers worker to compete in the this year they've really done nothing to say we're going to compete for the NBA title even aboard he wasn't Golden State. By bringing out a lot of what these one year contracts. That they sites they have their position next year to do what they wanna do so there does need to be some separation from church and state here as far as. Well the lakers and and being competitive to win that it the title which they weren't going to they are going to do this year even before bore you want to Golden State right and and it. To put him in CoBiz a Ahmanson's some sort of perspective it's like when the Dallas Cowboys make the play it's okay. You can either love the cowboys you can hate the cowboys but the one thing I can guarantee you people watching while calling it a 1000% correct yes 1000% the lakers yes the lakers will become a national draw again with LeBron on the team my god. If they were a draw when he was in Cleveland. With LeBron imagine how much bigger the Laker brand is going to be right now they have the best player and it went well but as Roosevelt brings up. There are some questions and he says my question is are so there's a couple of them. How is Luke Walton. Going to head coaching to players. With a better basketball IQ than him. Plus handled the circus that Lance is going to bring not to mention Lavar ball one Rondo gets lines those minutes ya. Well here's the other I think that they effectively neutered Lavar ball toward the end of the season that well we're not happening let's see if that stage and that's helped especially on the lakers that's on us with the stories for us to talk about what are more you know why don't you know we know we have a standing policy and our lockers Alonso and I'm obviously not against the British did some injury issue a decision he showed some great flash is now he's dealing with the meniscus. So why he's had surgery he's coming back from. But but this is going to be intercede you do have a raw Rajon Rondo you know the great basketball IQ. But to struggle we're fiery anti government little fiery Lance Stephenson we know can be that way as a crazy. A young coach in Walters a few years all of a LeBron member they were in the same draft class one and thirty so I it it will. We have but Kobe is a 1000% correct and they will be wave or interstate and I do think. All league in any sport is better off of one of its marquee franchises. Is is relevant. The outlets and and the other thing here is we're we're talking about the circus right because. When you play for the cowboys you play for the Yankees you play for the lakers or the Celtics it's a different dynamic. Because there's a certain aura that goes with his team in Kobe went on to say in the Stephen A Smith show. That LeBron is one of those guys that can handle the circuit. They're required to do at certain amount of it can't. Because it's a place that used to serve legacy and that you have to do about it did you have to be able to have that inner carpet. They will be just aren't in big deal to instill that in the rest your teammates. As you're going and worse our. Saying of our duty to do it sort of it got its Q did you do in high school. And he's been able to do look at it and persevered through it and a move forward to doing it saying here. I don't think there's any question that LeBron can handle the circus that comes with playing on the lakers the question then becomes those players that you talked about. Will they be able to handle it and British judge should because you know we dealt with that in Boston. But if there is a different dynamic all the stuff swirling around can you focus on what matters most. Yeah I mean it's economy it would be adjusting to watch what were I'm gonna look at is the young players on this team of their chance to really learn now. Their chance to really grow exponentially. With a guy like LeBron there how we. Offseason this team could change again or whether it's the one your guys that won't be around whether they're gonna make some trades as well as some of the young players will be year old or. Will be traded out of there I don't know. You know you don't know what's gonna happen but I think I I think people will realize. That the team the lakers put on the four Alicia this year. By design and what they're trying to do will be different next year drew maybe even drastically. Different next year for what they're setting up to do next offseason or writers. As bush told us yesterday when he was his studio with a yet they can go out and trying to make a play for a guy like Kemba Walker who might make their team a little bit better this year for the things you can do especially shooting wise. Oh why would you give up those assets that could come and play. After the 20182019. Season when. You could have bode cousins available again right you could have Kevin Durant available you can have Klay Thompson about Jerry Butler Jimmy Butler they're going to be bigger fish are. Available next year and you've got the three and one commitment. From from LeBron so it gives you that luxury as well to build a winning team around him. Ken says as far as tweet says as far as Golden State or we're ready to hear some of the stuff envied Simmons and tire re going to the warriors warriors took a blow or. Trade involving Anthony Davis of hemming and ending up a Golden State John Wall on a private plane to Frisco to talk about joining warriors warriors trade Steve Kerr for the next year's top three picks say they don't need a coach anymore. If it's kind of been going that way none of those things actually aren't they doubt but look at at the end of the day give the warriors all the credit in the world because a they have the the idea. I had a cache and for lack of better to him to get players like blue because Saddam did that and if it works for them it works for them and it works for bogey works for both. Some play some players in some teams just play the system better the numbers are and that's exactly what's happening right now with Golden State. It was all sort of one big giant jello mold very interest in where that line. Taylor Twellman is here. And we are deep diving once again into the World Cup. OK so why can't Mexico beat Brazil. Mean Mexico look at times brilliant and that of course they had first warming North American deterrent and at what there was of Rafa Marquez right up 39 year old midfielder. And he had he would be replaced at them zoos I guess that's the those are real questions that need to be answered from Juan Carlos is rudimentary game in the second half and was. It wasn't different because Rafa Marquez came out it was different because. Just in general. When you make a switch at halftime it changes the cohesion with the group it changes so much of what Mexico is about listen Mexico the first twenty minutes Priscilla sleeping. I'm not mistaken they outshot him for one they were the better team. Paul Webber went around to sixteen columns. It's difficult because when you think of the last seven round of sixteen Brazil Netherlands Argentina twice United States Germany Bulgaria. Looser teams that other than the United States and Bulgaria are expected to win. The World Cup's of Mexico what they're not doing in the group stage is set themselves up. With an easier run. They had that opportunity of the seven games I just told you about bright 2018. This year was a press opportunity if they don't play big against Sweden. They're playing today against Switzerland right and so that's what I meant by Arab free single World Cup. Mexico and quite honestly it's CONCACAF has United States is in this group. They cannot complete. The entire group stage run so then they end up playing against real quality opponents and listen part of me says I respect the ups and how tidy seven straight World Cup's it nodding your group throwing in those games. On the other hand I think 2018 might have been their best opportunity to get. The quarterfinal or be documented some of their work of good news from service or across getting knocked out yes and in this round as well. You look at the second game would Belgium and Japan Japan up to nothing so let's talk from their side of it when they're up two mil they play. It was their bad strategy the rest and gamers just give her all the bells are for hole that's a good question I thought Belgium started the game. Very I have made major concerns the way they started again they played 3 central defenders which means. You're gonna try to clog up the middle but that leaves the flanks in the wide areas open that's exactly where Japan and wanted to play against Belgium. Silver Borough Martina is good friend of our security is BN. Made two changes one was Fellini scored a goal the other one was gently scored the game winner off to a police report Martinez. Recognize where the issue was the bigger thing is Japan lost the game Belgian dim when you up to zero run knock out round game. You make no substitutions. You don't bring on any kind of sub debt changes tactically may be bring often attacking player. Bring on someone that can run a little bit more cover ground color have some real range in the midfield. Shocking and then the last goal. They went a 114. Yards and thirteen suck it. And saying how follow him right thank you right. Whatever you have to do to get extra time but for whatever reasonable might you by the way. Why did you pick and get candidates fifa fair play yellow yellow cards are just so Brian bright all that did number right where it matters because they should a follow old. They don't brought innovation and follow Murti eight follow him in you are now an extra time. Japan must the game which is a little surprising but how how about that that play goalie start to a normal right at them and I mean there's like a breakaway it was it was incredible it was like Watson fast break right yeah a basketball teams in the issued rounds are doing you know five it did it just was. Shocking to me though again Japan just didn't do it. It was gorgeous it was a great goal. But when you look at it. Belgium's got major concerns does Kobe play embers don't look shocked how how does he not. What's double a ball hop artist finger and a goal scorer I mean talk Hussein smokes yet it he had a frustrating afternoon so for meat. That's the underrated part of this is he made two runs one at. To drag the defender a way so mirnyi naked start the play the and the second one you eat it. Goals cork is the only thing you think about a squabbles. And for him until he let the ball roll. I was the most unselfish and Connie moments and that honestly opened up the space for job at the finish at the play it was gorgeous but still I'm still stock. 1214 hours later. What Japan respected bureau will apparently race prematurely yeah you're killing me to kill you did off Taylor Twellman with us in studio given us the straight talk. Roger by stray dog while as best phones best network no contract. I'm trying to remember. Landon Donovan school in 2010 Algeria yet we got hot. And it was it was it was almost the identical thing was and it was a stoppage time to write goalkeeper grabs it yeah rolls it out you know one sensible from Algeria and then all of a sudden it ends up of Landon tapping it in from six yards out almost identical goal yet so this is a little worse though because. It wasn't a say. Algeria was spread out they had called her right Japan the Japan actually. It that it was more Japan's mistake in Durban the goal was yours and how how rare are these buzzer beating each my goals in soccer writer that's the only other one like Lieberman I just Germany Sweden of that but that was a set that society all data that's a totally different I. I off a panel this country's given it's something that I haven't seen along to eighteen goals and stoppage yeah that's not a lot right and buzzer beaters that type of stuff like you're talking about and we had a bunch of a great goaltending goes saves in in any case and that other one how about the Japanese co Q I mean honestly Belgium's Generale yeah college or go to won the game seven to put them came out he knew he was used on his head before we get into the games today and we are Russia Croatia on the other side of rec will fill that out today the rest of it today. You have your grave France you know Brazil Holland Belgium I mean. Very solo outsider bracket average and a by the way I have three of those teams left are well good for you think you're I'm so happy enough volume honey that's my jaguar exactly now it's sold that side of the bracket holding break that thing down I don't have. I don't know I mean he when you think about Spain losing right and trying not to read that means everyone else that's why the getting good Columbia today dip. I'd be sitting there saying this is our time. Because Spain is the one team that no one wanted to play over the Russia took care of that. But the other side. Belgium Brazil Herbalife France you can't get out and tell me it's the most lopsided bracket I can remember World Cup history. Because when you look at those four teams three of the four have won a World Cup. So they've got experience even though it doesn't matter when it was. There's believe there because they've been able to do it. I just I I don't know what to expect than the other side because Sweden Switzerland backing today you could throw balls in the air who knows who's gonna win that. And then if England Colombia that winner I think really looks at it and says wait a minute if we get through this what I owed while the other side I'm beats the absolute heck out of each other. I think the right side of the bracket was Sweden Switzerland England Colombia Russia Croatia goal which I think they look at and say. We may have a shot in the final all right so. Take me through why England is going to destroy Colombia. Because that's what has happened today okay well that's not gonna happen and a half I I'm going to win like when you say destroyed to find the right. I know I. You don't win this fight me don't win like this more than what I get ya I don't want melt off she's had Sig do they have a shot 100% but they need to make sure if they don't score a goal early they need to make sure they stay in the game as long as possible and frustrate Colombia and here's why. Colombia is not the most disciplined team when you frustrate them they're gonna throw numbers forward and they're gonna leave themselves. Exposed on the other way the one thing England has that they haven't had in a long time is hates. In real pace Perry Cain in the blink of an eye and score goal you've got pace in wide areas. The defensively tram sorry but I I vet. Major questions about the English may do so who'd they play Tunisia Panama and then the Belgian game doesn't matter because neither team really trying to win bright. So I don't know I don't know this team from Colombia is extremely. Touched wrong. They're explosive. Whip Tom as Rodriguez without. And then you look at Columbia and listen they they've got experience of plain against these types that teams I don't know does England have a chance he answers yes will they do it. Very unfortunately I don't think so it and Switzerland Sweden is like so I don't. They also rans here or are desperate to teams that actually go look are fundamentally very sound so in the NFL when teams don't make a lot of mistakes don't turn the ball over. That's when you got was Sweden Switzerland right so it's harder to predict. I think it's set pieces. Sweden's a good team was and they knocked out in a week. It in the playoff Switzerland won nine games in a row war cup qualifying so there not here by accident. But their two teams so similar I feel like they're just gonna be butting heads the entire. My point is is that they are that's exactly and come and do that myself with the the next month. I just feel like they're the most balanced roster however that France. Argentina game that shows you that France can be so explosive with killing and amp up pay Reese Manger room. Aren't yeah I mean that thing back to a gold was still an old unbelievable what you've got to in these knockout round games you've got to be able to keep a shot out. The only team that I'm sold on keep. Or shut up right now. As Brazil but I would tell me he's not wearing a soccer Jersey look at ammonia right Bundesliga rid Bundesliga and leading our our fans who thank you tolerable apart the most important question. We are ever enjoy chest OK he ten time winner of the mid and others argue and I throw up every kind of match in the in ten minutes. You had to how many door com almond resorts while ago how are we doing reminded you that is what many hot dogs did you read do you think in ten minutes ten minutes after they get ten minutes and last year he had 72 watchdogs employees. I'll join us audiences might top partly I give the longer I guess again as I throw a touchdown in ten minutes ten minutes old boy I mean I am week. I'll say fifteen. Was Bosnia actually carve cut. Off their national. I have worked out ten years strays that. That's a shrink budget and I'll say fifteen but I'll point I mean tailor ours is the most important thing I am just to draw this out in 1966. In Real Madrid wins the European Cup. Burly qualifies for Europe Manchester City when the league Chelsea finishes fifth. England when the World Cup 2018. Real Madrid wins champions burly qualifies Manchester City would easily Chelsea finishes fifth. Both lines are bring it home baby history tells us straight every single one of my former English teammates and a has said that exact same thing there is and we're in a television chant yes there is a chance on there's a chance but my goodness our lives. Will be over for ever you know the English when he does on. 'cause the Craig Burley isn't the world that everything you have and even though Scottish and us but the Great Britain year union law come together and I'd rather I rather go plan on coming traffic light oil and other pull for Mexico those guys at him and then Steve Nicol had a we're reacted to word you're going to be pushed aside for those guys unless you can somehow I already to have been first off I played for Steve Nicol for ten years and yet. Didn't understand a single word co op. How does the best part is Robert Kraft would come into the locker room and he looked at me and say what he's saying I don't every other words the upward your gas. Don't buy that you're so hot. Oz plus a spice to it. That's no surprise nobody lets it go England. No Switzerland we'll go England goes what's the deal with some of the world say that it does they've done about drag there's there's a reason and don't we don't bring that about what kind of hard dot com surprise or friend or loved one today with a bouquet from 1800flowers.com.

Yelled go and then putted well it would have built like a dog or taught an idea of public water big man Andrea. Regret that well all of being anywhere twenty to that point oh pound. All my gosh that is Google's reason for talking to Joey chestnut again time time mustard belt winner of the Nathan's hot dog eating contest but you have had or have so many other world record from saint elmo's shrimp cocktail deep fried asparagus stage. My two balls brought worse hard boiled legs he Martin Sam which is so one and what is. Goal draw your competitions what are some of the harder things to eat in the TV or records. Our opinion and I'm not clear where or who did I'd only like. I did what I pay him do you have in Korea had that the they did it pretty right at who already have it I didn't. Know. I was did do it would carry. I guess I got old quick and in the cup like in a moment or event. We will you know aren't going to a competition if you really really don't like something or just say I want no part of that. You have paid if it if do we agree can't get on the comment you most likely or won't I won't do it. The very low interest and here handled actually build every year there's a pop up in New Orleans and I wanna visit them on the wrong there's and you actually lowered its. Let let's say we don't agree on very. Is that's it's a slimmer slow overview on every door I thought I narrowed. Joey just that is what this is what I wanted to focus obviously you are the best at this how did you get started. What was the process that got to end this or there's some mode where you said while I can really inhaled a lot of food really quickly. It wasn't my idea I bet that global that you needed to do a little vote signed him to a in my brother you rightly morning rebalance and you kind of hyper competent. The only reason why do low point 10 that if you know did you offer me free hotel room but I. I suppose there are all young and appeal or review Walter the first time when I am I the third 12 or thirty bucks. Do it made the point click my girl oh my god like a news. Her thinking about how to eat more and the next are definitely there are a little bit of preparation and then win at the end and a woman that I bet you as the noble. So I'm interested so your first contest who's in the casino and I heard you said locker sighed and it was lobster soap. Compare that first one to the last time you were a lobster eating contest how much more did you weaken my own learning over the years how much more did you consume. Oh yeah I'm glad I don't know monster gaga and let that the upper orbit 10 be quiet period ended only by a reporter browns. Nor am I did and ended thirteen pounds. So. I remember looper either taught our post all over the older Kadima at only one Napa on Melo might have been more popular painkiller and all. Did you ever be bought out. Is that there are a bottle was scratched from a foreign. That is on to a ridiculous that. Go to art and it's time to time mustard dull winner Joey chestnut Nathan's hot dog eating contest tomorrow. Looking for his eleventh. Title in that is I imagine some of the war records that you have have or have had is your record out there that you don't have right. That you wanna get.

The cheesecake that he's kicking crab I mean it sounds like a wonderful meal I guess you just know eleven Pollack. And by the way and this goes and actually you mentioned Sonya Thomas says that a very slight. Bill Young lady right YR I did you know when you're sick of eating contest should think of large and you're god badlands Booker are meaningless as this monster is looking guy you think.

But there are that we're really a bit more I learn what ever you are an easy it is European corn breeding them. Big ballad Booker is if he had argued probably more than me but it won't work there are prepared to put that you don't approve an impediment and the interviewer wondered. Two big guys that you think you were given them the want to warn to you and you're not eating at you when you're now. It's spread not a marathon not a drill and I know a little bit about it quite a it's a joy just there was listen. How all I mean how carefully do you consult with your doctors when you do this to make sure that everything's Kosher I mean. Literally day.

Well with the Nathan's hot dog any contest so stay loose today stay Lucent today we'll see what happens joy thanks for being cars per share. Let every little. Only makes me wanna vomit and then punch you square in the face anyway yeah. Police saucy today. Are extraordinary NBA insider Brian will endorse. Brian how surprised were you that it was a ball places the warriors that book because he's gonna play when he's finally back from that Achilles. Mildly surprised Aminu who's pretty clear that he had no market. And be the warriors were planning on trying to use that mid level exception at five million bucks. On a player who slipped through this market it was day. If this is the year where there's going to be some guys who are left out there who aren't so. Our that bad who are. Eagle lured back to get paid because of the tight so the market and they were looking for that opportunity and they sounded with bogey on I do understand that shock value. Of the guy bogeys stature signing what the warriors but I also thanked that we. You know it in the in the stands can enjoy them on the worry or it's free agency has and it's kind of cool they enjoy these big moment like this but. We have to realize that bogeys coming up the most serious injury could have the bat the ball player rights and not only that the warriors are their most effective. When they play without it sent. I don't think it changed the balance of how well or the warriors championship hopes of all is it any day I think it. Provide book eat. A guy who has been through some will have fortunate lot that last year it provides you with an opportunity to rehab. In an environment that you know is really firm also I think there's a. I have no idea what you're direct. They gave the the deciding debate made. Since Fulbright committed. Don't. Follow either with the modern NBA. Or the design of you who have been successful LeBron James the last eight years. Every individual signing take in alone. I can kind of understand the mean. Rondo. Is without question is what type of competitor. And the type of veteran guys who held true in the playoffs that I concede being a value to any team especially a team. What LeBron was looking for a guy he can count on under pressure Rondo has a little. But we can't Rondo and by the way it's even send a Bible JaVale McGee. I don't see the rationale for the way they're doing I have to. Go to the fair selector it's July 3 I mean it's not what the team looks like. Is gonna look like in in the fall but what rang and reciting all these guys to one year contract which makes them extremely treatable. I'm not about. Go flying off to handle buy into a very strange sent a team building and in the in the NBA. Why that in your looking and you believe the game should go backwards just look at the final four. Last children and look at their true once you. Watch the final and end the three point streaks. But also look at how the broad and successful but more shooting routine that added the batters he has bad and so. Age I just don't understand the ways that they're doing what their roster I applaud what about site they have four guys sitting on their bench already the second worst. Three point shooting team in the league last year which frankly is one of the reasons why they worry pork sheet. When the Phoenix Suns. When I look at them onboard overall pick because they were the worst seat okay so the concept old you don't need that pop up why are just. I don't see it but OK let's see they've got some stops kept up let's see what they do. Crime went hoarse with us our NBA insider so with that in mind Brian is this really the lakers way of saying look. We did what we could this year by getting LeBron. And we're just gonna try something this year because were really on next year. When we go we can have clay Thompson we can have Kevin Durant we could have Jimmy Butler we get all these big name players that they may be able brought in Max out next year. As opposed to trying don't waste those assets this year when they really couldn't fit anybody else and. He tripped up at the elusive question but again is that they said Brian that's the man on my gulf war. Well done. This issue is Rondo is not a clear that you do that it. Rondo is a player to compete right now up if you're you don't sort of having the building your US spent that money. On morbid developmental or young player I would say secondly. The bride check Roger 34 per day is eight and December now. Granted he had given them a three year commitment which will move some pressure at that exact uniquely able to always. Be competitive on the highest level. The apps I still don't want a portal won't waste the LeBron nearby just in you know developing can be you wanna compete. An etiquette you know and they also. Themselves in position here. You know LeBron. What we're live abroad he'll pop up in July it the way that you about it Ted nor I promise you. You know particular war games over by hundreds of February brought about commentary about that. So I I I'm not under any I know that. The broad phrase that ever living heck that Alando. Gateway to the finals and so my belief is one LeBron met with the lake if you like hey. I'd love to get a guy like Rondo and it went out and got but I'm not to assure that LeBron. Should be that guy directing which way they dealt with these with the key building and the ultimately they've got to build the team. That they think is gonna be supportive of around yeah right if that it's not happening right now. That was a very lucid answer the question I. I'm really well Doug did that yeah. Well I mean listen either way at the the lakers are are relevant again they're going to be interesting to watch sports for basketball player and as you mentioned the guys are signing accurate could make you scratch your head a little bit as well. Let's back again for for a moment to the team that that LeBron lefty did this once before and we saw them be the worst team in the conference up to that fourth year low brow was gone. To the tenth. Seed in the conference so they were right right from sixteen to ten how far will they fall this time around. Probably not far not because you know we go you know with little basketball but they got a hold on to top there. They didn't hit on all the but they get on carrier ring EM let direct relief to a championship. And so the question would stay with the cavs right now is. You try to play a tried here and there we still got Kevin Love you still got. George hale you put that they are met. I know don't laps we've still got. Tricked them concept shall we still we try to compete in the Eastern Conference where Yelp everything's all right and columns after the they're really good rookie they could maybe. Right at the seven great seat that appear to be what they're easy to do right now. I'm not sure that's the Smart play. They don't have their draft pick next year let them all the top and knowing that I think the Smart play you know again looking at it sort of scientifically. What Peter district that she's the heart. And go ahead it would take vote trade Kevin Love trade Kyle Korver maybe negotiate a buyout with George Hill I. Obsolete you can get some may take a treatment option that. And just play your young guys take losses that it might need a Smart thing to do. Just strum you don't not geeky emotions and their perspective but as the cab mutate much is in the prospective big deal with the very emotional person did. He feels really good about columns section of the player easily excited about them and I think you believe concept that can help them win games right now. He may be right about that I think the worst place being in the NBA. It could be a good little right and is now if they if they have a you're actually which I can't get that they have the talent to finish like. I pretend that these like the Kevin Love will have a big game Kevin Love average it can help you averaged 24 and twelve. As the centerpiece of that keep. You're gonna end up with Kevin Love walking free agency. And you're gonna have the wall protecting a cap giveaway. I don't think that's Smart. You know the maneuvering by the team I think the correct thing to do it their all down but. I'll wait and watch. We all will to see what happens erode quickly when he before I let you go a lot of people said they believe right now just with LeBron and some of these other players that are on the lakers. There are currently the third best team in the west behind only Golden State in Houston you bind that. I think that's lunacy. I I'm laughing everybody you know and we're doing it I mean we're doing it. Are not near the looks cool but Pataki about their odd debate that they're putting those are the biggest. At that shot there at the Laker fans were coming to take their money. I think I like yesterday they were seven to two. I can. They're good at the lakers are irate they're there twenty don't want a public money a Laker Leadbetter to twice the one at this point I'm. Now achieve what LeBron had the chance that almost any playoff series. Because Hugo ability to control well out here it has been documented to be out will be unbelievable. And just the heat in the right now. They are borderline playoff team in the Western Conference. And it got sort of ripping at thirteen undecided about your cup it is loaded loaded like. I know impair or when are they better beat Oklahoma City Thunder with their roster. I would say no I would say they're not better than Utah jet. I would say it's debatable about the about the cable and abroad as a great player even hope we get. You're dispersed keep quiet let her first word number eight C graduate outlined under. You think they're not that much better team McKee played my small bit. The splintered there a point you know cure move that the drama are probably better than the latent. What are what are gonna have to do really well that did not yet have a great speed quickness roster but again in fairness it's July 3. If they could have Hawaii whether it's two months or four months to win over on the so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt but I am not impressed with their vote. And that is why we asked would be those when you go right near the basket that was extremely elusive the thing I wanted to be with us this morning laments that I have a absolute support. And.
