Against the Celtics it's only going audience via radio ESP NT Jason fits it average say. Sit next to Michael and Michael junior. You know these these are the moments and at the lakers fans and the date they were hyped for you did we forget that a year ago. The conversation was how good can the lakers be especially in other bring LeBron and his numbers is how the on course gonna go and and it's. We're gonna get stars in the young guys are gonna development trying to find all these reasons to have hope. And you know at least for one night last night you can forget that they didn't get Anthony Davis of for one night some of the young guys how business nicely played well for one night let the lakers is that it. How whatever I'm just happy that. That nobody here got traded I was glad to see remain huge Terry deadline don't insure a walk through the door. Being the old guy here sometimes and not you know privy to the information that's going on so. A major my my card Q worked well this morning and got in and Amar I held my breath over the door to see if you guys are going to be here enough. The due to being a Baghdad the roster accent hold by breath every day culminated in my idea Cardoso work yeah yesterday everytime somebody says hey can you get coffee in the Cassidy SPN housing woes is that I'm Don this is where I get traded but to limit is serious question who might. If you'd been treated. Were your first question would have been right relate what they get treated for like there's got to be some. You always want to know your value our guys didn't traders were like 42 round pick cash Josh celebrations now in advance that. The player to be named later on you know what what would be the worst thing I'm trying to think in sports and all the trades. What was the worst thing on the other end. And worst thing coming back. I think for well I think cash considerations is the worst are like hey. All we want it was just to get ready you and there are good and they're you know we're gonna get a little money yeah we're gonna get some cash that's not there's brown van. Bush or anything stupid ever thrown in your treasure their water zero autumn but what was the worst thing because you're right if you're good trait you like you know what was my value. You know I got traded what was my value considered for them to get rid of me exit I think the worst thing is because I've heard of guys you know that would find out on the elliptical watching in the facility while they're working out they see their name goal on the bottom line and it trade. And after going to find out from the front office you would like what ever your traded value in return is to be able to fit on a very tight per version. Of the bottom line is you can't see your name and the name of the person or thing you were traded for in one screen shot on the bottom line your value is plum. No no I I totally disagree do I want them to have to bring up a two box where it says Jason dates and on the other side all I lists like things I don't is that Jeremiah had thank you I guess this summer whereas the davis' traded because he wasn't ready yesterday yours would be Jason sits for a 20/20 second round pick which 1233. Round pick that's considered things that don't even exist. After our housing double stuff tornadoes is that I dabble abuse straight. Yeah we are I mean it is true if I came in sat down today and they were like hey you don't get to host because Stephen Hayes and I'm like I did it. And a regular I don't know right there's certain things if you didn't trade him for some the big debate. There's nothing else have you tried to Dustin your work here anymore when it. You've been traded you know to stop a ordinance is city I don't wanna you know be deemed too salty but also is it is an underwhelming if you come in this morning and you're like the lakers and you looked around and you're expected to there's also a difference of coming in and expecting everything to look different and then walking in and see everyone you thought it was good to be on the way out we've just got to be an awkwardly our current right now that one again does not only do that happened but somebody who haven't heard from a shoot his mouth off again which is gonna seriously complicate matters its still dealing audience here radio ESP into were present about regret. Have insurance all of our phone yesterday join us on the shell Pennzoil performance on and before we get into all the entity Davis up. It was a big night for the lakers last night in the sense that they were down eighteen in the first half it looked like this game was over. And they were able to come back and get a win a note and I at the authors and images and I'm not usually big like let's go over a hundred center. But the lakers down the stretch on game tying or go ahead shots. They hit the most in the in the last a couple minutes of the game. In any teams in all year. The most that the lakers have hit the last when he seasons so they came into the game three of fourteen on game winning your game tying shots fourth worst in the NBA last night. So in in the matters in the moments that mattered lakers game. Marketers an aircraft that's trying to. But no Odyssey in him before the season you had said. After the trade deadline the lakers would be in a position where they're beating the Boston Celtics in Boston on our home court. Assumed a lot of things have gone right for the lakers obviously this is something that they would like the Boston Celtics have carrier Irving on the air who before had before the Brian James now is a part of his all star team roster and is. Meant to defenses but. And honestly you're watching the game last night the lakers and that victory has to feel kind of hollow at this point because you know the end game for you was what you're judged by honest and have some immediate result the game works I know look LeBron James ten threes which is an amazing thing let alone making five of them which is while ten threes in the game that feels like more and Al wire the way we can expect normally see forward I agree I I think Laker fans were happy to. She'd win but that. Shall we have said this all along it just almost came to fruition what do we say about the lakers reset the team needs she this year. Is not going to be the team you see next year because of moves are gonna try and make it this is both oral Lee Anthony Davis Cup was like they broader budget while one year deals for bats. You knew some of the young players we're going to be trade bait. The team that eventually if the lakers get back to a championship. Level while LeBron there is going to be different than this team this year so yeah I. I agree it's kind of like. Who will win yeah our guys that we're not gonna see a last year or next year awards a cool way enemy Tyree makes the labeling 111 seconds ago. TV coverage of LeBron as their Brigham the ball down just someone in his grill the entire way they weren't letting him. Getting the ball so it's anger and tries a reverse layup with four seconds it's blocked the ball is flying in case you didn't see it is kept all over the place. Ends up on Rondo is handing hits a buzzer beater for the win and exciting loyalists and that's all the players can worry about right all the players can worry about is being on the court. Playing that game for those minutes and trying to get a win were all looking in fans a look at the big picture after the game you look at the bigger picture but. A nice win win for them on the road last night. I understood the reasons I don't think these guys are kind of focus on a bigger picture right now I mean these guys or regional or. Well I guess about when you're playing the game you're playing you know I want to let me when you're right I'm going to forget I'm talking yard give them the 48 minutes on the floor where they're playing the game and enjoy that. And then as soon as it ends rumor goes back to the big picture. There's one guy and the lakers roster that I exist in my mind can play the game while he's thinking about the big picture and that's LeBron and a day in and there is much is in your right triple double last night he huge game for for LeBron. But there is a decent let's get to and Anthony Davis is not an LA lakers this morning something that as we left there yesterday we expected we did not expected this trade was going to get done. However feeling it knowing and it's a debate swift kick to the no no places at this point Israel Iran and you figure out. Man what this is my core right now. And this could be my core four days a week we just at this point we don't know it and there's no reason I think that Anthony Davis is suddenly going to find his way to the lakers. In June I mean it this is eight a difficult situation for LeBron to be in because he's looking around these guys saying what did. This is the Laker team I'm on for the next. A year and a half I mean that has to be part of the. Conversation well I think for LeBron to this is going to be another test of his leadership ability because now you're left with a mess that you partially made them in showing all these guys your expendable I wanted to you're out of your coming back remember O'Brien went through this whole thing last year is last year at the casually said. I'm gonna enjoy this I don't have yo I only know how many years I have laughed at this point summer to try to make sure. I enjoy this team what we've got a really low dose of that this year to try get every once in caballos again. Now I listen I. To me I think this is only gonna get worse inertia and attend slot right now another early game and a half out of the playoffs. You have so much uncertainty there. And already we're starting to talk about New Orleans didn't even sniff at this deal so dire start to think OK well. You know what for for the biggest trade we're gonna talk about the wild or along the summer. The lakers gonna completely swing and miss on this one because all the sudden the players were looking at everyone's gone. Look at their door without LeBron they don't play very well so why am I thinking about taking a a a monstrous collection of them. Now they all know they may not be there how they get to play the rest of the year and if it's not good that's even gonna cement the fact of why would we gave all these players when they're not even playing very good so I I don't know how far this team jumps up. I think you only give up on your third in the conference at this point we're all that's gone on I think a lot of people I thought the lakers we're gonna do well this year. And and I'm not saying it was just a I knew conceived pick on anybody who thought they would finish by the circumstances. Now. Kind of just Roy and his team. Walt quite frankly I think what hurt this team a lot more hours the length and extent of LeBron James missed time with a injury that links that's the out wire that you could predict an all this was LeBron James who is traditionally been an Iron Man in the NBA. And not miss time with injury extended basically Everest or outside of that that one stretch work he dealt with some back issues in Miami. Other than that that's the thing it's beat Roth this season more than anything I agree zoo of you we got to look at it yesterday there was a conversation about conspiracy theories and to the pelicans. Sort of create this entire drama with the lakers just do. Pull one over on them with no intent of of ever moving Anthony Davis if if we are at that spot what were looking at the pelicans and more finding. Conspiracy theories on why they were never gonna trading in the first place what stands out to me is it. They're not gonna trade him this summer if that's that he did to the lakers. If that's the version that is true in any CEE even slightly if that's Amber's and served and they are bent on not sending him to LA. Anthony Davis isn't going to be either with the lakers there's no assurance co Y Leonard is gonna come and go from Toronto to the lakers so there is this moment where. You know that whatever conversation we were having about the lakers and how they care how good they can be. LeBron is not a spring chicken by the time he gets whoever he wants with them it means the summer it's when he twice before that happens in eighty gets I have some are. I still think when it comes down to him we've heard all our basketball people talk about it is is Jason Tatum going to be in the in the discussion for the Celtics. Because the pelicans are gonna want back page and all NBA guys again not at all stars are already keep saying all NBA guy and that's that's the level that we're talking about. We're Tatum can go. And the Celtics know that as well and there's inserted carrier ring as well. So his hate him in the package and then does that number one pick in a goal to the next you know to make that a viable situation as well because now we know that what is it three teams at the same chance for the number one pick that's changed as the first time. This year so. That's I think the only Uighurs I agree I think the lakers are basically onto the scene unless some things are falling their way or were the number one picks pick goes. And the Celtics saying Qaeda is not going to be involved in this. If that's the big game goes south just as quickly for the pelicans isn't everyone else yes you may indeed be read. Treat to mixes players and is because that number one it could turn into it it does and then all of a sudden whoever is in play with that number one overall pick. Could become a viable portion in this discussion. And quite frankly for the lakers now you'll be all eyes on this summer like that's where this turns if your Magic Johnson is right around this for the time being they're going to be waiting misting out. Through the rest of the year the lakers you were eyes on all these region this summer and Klay Thompson becomes the first man on your mouth again in a wage he was before this is quite frankly based on the where things don't. A military -- out any of this discussion like the way vis vis the bigger the bigger apology is all that and they apologize about tampering a team bronze gotten MBA all star bode well well aren't horrible what there are a lot of things that now you look at the list of people that are going to be either on restricted restricted free agent this summer. That magic got a hit on like this beat this makes basically vet test that they're gonna take this summer. That's pass or fail like there is no middle ground for the lakers this summer Tracy McGrady was on the jump yesterday in the jumped and a great job of breaking down the trade action it was as as it was happening McGrady talked a little bit. About the expectations and what's on the bra on shank is shoulders. Being with the lakers checked his. I'm not by MA you put on the power play goal we talk about want the most trustees as franchises. And and and our game. LeBron is arguably. He's one of the greatest of all Tottenham right and he's been the best learn Ali forward Sindh where here as he is he's and that's after he's right that's up three. He hasn't won a championship put him on that lakers uniform he'd meet meet because of who he is. Now that then let let's let's give LeBron as answer resorts anatomy and this is LeBron had something to say about it and it is pretty epic saga. There's nothing on me in this league. I don't already so. Everything goes in for me is just like slice known case in love the process of everything not go through. We were compete. Everything united. That is the position to people championships. What does nothing from them chase him around or like I mean. I love the fact that he's he's clear on that guys but also he says I love the process of competing every night I love the process of putting teams in position to compete for championships the lakers may not be competing every night. And they may not be competing for championships. They they certainly aren't this year I think but we all knew deaths overall were waiting and even magic was hinted at this as well. So now we're all waiting we were we were basically. Good with all of this anyway in looking to free agency next year. But then the whole Anthony Davis thing got thrown on our lap with same agent has LeBron same agency in the whole deals like oh wait a new thrown in this because we're gonna do this anyway right we're gonna do this next summer or this the other summer in free agency. We're gonna start talking about how the team was gonna change how who's gonna build the big deal is just icing on the cake but. And that they. They're at the plate but what this first this first swing was a monster monster miss JR. Suggesting is that as says they just think about this now going into this summer is we talk about you know Golden State to protect to decline for their bucks depending on who and what they lose like if Kevin Durant departure is something that we entertain seriously if Klay Thompson doesn't give the Max deal. In our goals stated sounds like he might be inclined to look elsewhere for that payday finally getting beat financial credit on the back end of these guys have kind of for sake of for team success. If the blues lose that much potential this offseason how much does it change about what we think it's he actually needs to win a championship again but right now you need three maybe four super star to be able to even come close to winning one there all the sudden what's the barrier to work the metric for success look like. When your another team bringing in town for what you actually need to be golden state of Houston Rockets or anyone else and all this when you don't have the may be assemble as much talent so if you're a lakers it might be as simple as giving one marquee free agent. This summer and not having to worry about tying three superstars together anymore like. I've been dubbed the metric for what we measure success by. Once we figure out what happened Golden State like that's still the biggest factor in everything we're gonna judge your day. I think if goal state loses Kevin Durant. And just loses him and accused by they're not born in the title again. And we're in the title that next year because enough teams have built up enough around to compete I think you're Kevin Durant spawned that runs done. It blew LeBron gotta you want right we know he's got to get 11 person and I said yes and no one camera wasn't there they set the record for most wins and they won a title again all that but other teams I think you're built up enough to have Kevin's gone. I think I think that's going to be the end of that rock dole doing just present about progressive insurance take from a range of coverage options with the name your price told. To find a price that works real real quick let's get caught up on a couple of things that are trending. Russell Westbrook fifteen points thirteen boards fifteen assists simple. He passes Michael Jordan with his eighth consecutive. Triple double big night for him I huge sniper or he just continues to do what he's been north. The last two years but more importantly. Because Paul George state and Paul George's heaven self a year as well. This team is shooting at third in the conference right now. Third three and half out. Of the Golden State Warriors so I don't know if the expectation was that that they were gonna be a good team. But can they be a team that competes for the top of the Western Conference I don't know how how far people think they may go but what I you know. A a nightly triple double in the way Paul George's plane in this surrounding players they are I think they're playing better than some people thought. Fire means is continued salt in the Laker wound right now college or hours or dammit. Again you go back there and it worked out well for both sides really put that trade that kind of shocked us all a couple Summers ago where the pacers sent or the guides who's gonna thunders and sectoral depot. Up to Indiana and the pacers at Paul George down there Paul George a guy who we always very good on his own and Indiana but we all thought was gonna be better as sort of the second you know the audacity to pitch in somebody's lineup and what better place to do that understanding year old the next two Ross who clearly wants to Dominic also fair point it. Last year's deal Casey things started so. Hang over our opinion of Oklahoma City in general with the stars and you guys are right they're playing incredible last all right now and then. They're viable contender. Sad news in baseball Major League Baseball lost a giant on Thursday. Hall of Famer Frank Robinson passed away at the age of eighty threes the only player in history to win the MVP award in the American League and the national army. Kamal what what this guy has meant. Through sports overall put on the sport of baseball is incredible again what I wanna use to mention both. Leagues when he won at the American League in 66 of Baltimore won the Triple Crown that year as well. And 75 became the first African American managers with the Cleveland Indians. Ever in baseball so. You know what what he was doing and what he meant to the game I mean just. Enough can't beset in this is another great opportunity. And I don't mean this in in enemy where we're talk about the young younger generation but who may not know about Frank Robinson. Obviously it's unbelievably sad that he passes away. It was 83 years old Purdue's now. For those that are saying maybe don't know enough about frank Robinson's could be great opportunity read about this guy understand. What he did and what he meant to the game of baseball. Start the start to rewrite hears you mentioned one the American one the America we award the Triple Crown in 1966. But in 1975. Beating the first African American manager when he's into player man yeah. And put himself in the lineup batting second on opening decorated Zack that's yeah that's great rose well and I also an incredible he was a barrier breaker and and we have to take a moment and it and and remember. That is not that long ago that these barriers had to be broken and he was a significant and substantial part of that casualties. That that did you cut a bottle we got more than won't get into. Over the course tomorrow morning much coming up the pressure is really jumper one team now but will they end up looking like a deer in headlights. Goal is simply goes. Very wait your Mike Foley senior. We wondered. If demise there's going to the 76ers regularly it was gonna create chaos in the Eastern Conference. I don't know if it's chaos but definitely the rich went out and and did everything they could to make themselves rich or go doing a money is being radio. And ESP NT you can follow us on Twitter act goalie Tim lingo instant Gramm act goalie to lingo. A resented by progressive insurance all phone guests join us on the cell. Penn's own performance line. Yesterday's trade deadline came and one of the bigger trades will will start with in the Eastern Conference involve the box cinnamon as a Nikola Mirotic. Heads to Milwaukee he's having a career year. And he comes in to bolster what is already I can't say this loud enough. The best team in the NBA direct. Listen you have to say we were talking about what to buy a terrorist be the biggest move in this move with the bucks made. Is accurate reporting there. I mean this the team authority what number one on number four offense number one and defense they're replaying well as you mentioned the best record ahead meritage I think I think. Obviously people love this said this war how it's gonna help the team. And what will be interesting for them it's a position there and and for starters are free agents in the off season so all I mean there's. Trying signed bring some back you know you can maybe make moves for other people as well depending on how this year ends. They're a good position kind of what to do after the season's over and let alone what they did do this season with that pick ups all. I think clearly you have to look at them and say OK ever walled court order to buy shares of saying. You know three all stars and one right on there on the horizon all star you know maybe that was one they have depth issues but you gotta love what Milwaukee did. Yet Milwaukee certainly no issue with debt they're or length of the top and like this just day long young physical team. And I don't know with gas and how much it makes you feel like again we talk about so much of this is recruiting if you were a guy who's going to be a free agent who's gonna be up and looking around in the next few years and your on Milwaukee's team you might look back within insect. I've got the chance to resign here knowing who we've got leading the charge on this one that's a major selling point for them as they go forward. I'll admit my logic like I've struggled with the logic around Milwaukee a little bit because we heard last week Anthony Davis when he said. These are the teams ever consider an extension form them Milwaukee was one of them so my immediate impact is oh my god trade whatever you need to put Anthony Davis next the Armisen I wanna see that. Wanna see that because I'm selfish and I really love beyond awesome player and want the bucks amiga because and it's great for any NBA. Aside from that though. They do have the best record they are jelling. They are putting together a top offense and a top defense and when you're talking about it seemed. That doesn't necessarily need all of that I know that's soundscan counterculture to a we usually think we easily think bill for the biggest are you can get. I will be interested to see what they do because marriages is essentially and he can be free agent at the end of the seasons or is essentially a rental to make them an NBA finals caliber team. Right now what they'll do after that is also going to be equally interesting to me do you keep that together or do you look around its ally or not we've made the finals. We're aware of where big what they have his choices aired they bring them back or not and it wouldn't be for the money that you need to bring back say in Philadelphia work but let's look at the main things of the top four right. In in the east so Milwaukee mainstays. Opted to who ball you did admit going to be back they still haven't semi sixers MBE Simmons right. And that's it right. In Boston I really don't know what he's gonna do and then the holy. That make them better this is a team that let you know that at that loves that to move. Has some great wings on this team Saul is not that what are you doing here Eminem blocker so all have to kind of see how they work all that together. As far as after Milwaukee Jimmy Butler to bioterrorist carrier Reza magic while they're all going to be free agents all Max guys as well. So who's looking good I guess what I'm saying for Milwaukee is they have a good this year and they have choices that they can control. For next year where these other teams have guys that that could be going star players Max players that could just decide to go somewhere else. You mention don't we've Gasol obviously that was another big trade yesterday right. We got some straight talk front do a straight talk wireless best phones vast networks of contacts from Paul Pierce yesterday. On the acquisition of Marcus all and what it means for the rappers. Think you know spoke with their depth and we will see more of assault moving the needle. Because their best lineup as we Serge Ibaka senator chuck him. But before we know why litter so not that this is a lateral move. So I'm not sure how much this helped them as much as mayor takes helps Milwaukee Rangel and Tobias Harris helps Philly so. I don't know. And that is straight talk straight talk wireless nation went numbers on America's largest most dependable forgy. LTE networks might this is day and it's a difficult situation that I have figured out well it may not help them as much as Mirotic gonna help Milwaukee right Milwaukee the best catch and shoot three T and a point shooting team. In the NBA and I think this year meritage has been averaging 2.3 made catch and shoot three's game. Tied with Klay Thompson so that's the level he's been hitting act you go into a place were that perfect is there with Gasol you're trying to figure out how would does agent mayor now he's guys are shooting better at three as of late. That has surge or bock a one of 21 over his last ten games from beyond the arc. Thanks guys cable passers averaging like I would just under five assists a game this year so when you do that with subscriber it was Yucca who may be the biggest win for them it betrayed I was affected know when tried to order Pascal C doctor who's been highly productive for those guys this year and seems like he's trending. In a really positive direction so for damages may be as much about who they capped mores who they managed to bring it. I prevent it is going to be how they work that rotation you know with Ibaka was Jaco and then bring in Chris Paul Gasol who. You know if you're playing the 76ers can certainly help commend their band with a MB you know that the big men their board. And a journalist should we were talking about the Bucs being the best game. Are analysts say Mount Olympus truck driver got 41 so bear right there you know within their game and a half behind. And the but the 76ers we will look at it with the all stars that they have entered by terrorist. People making comparisons to having the four all stars like Golden State those Golden State they're like a guy Klay Thompson doesn't need to dribble that much a guy I would dream migraine. Doesn't need to score that many points he does more assisting to buy terrapins inherits a vis a fourth guy he likes the ball a little more. And in this. Being the fourth guy before of the the top four there is gonna get the ball more so you got to see how the rotations gonna worked there worked as we always say there's only one ball. When he got lost ours out there Heidi disturbing that one ball. Well and we gotta give and I'm basically on how all of this is gonna jell together I mean I think. Philadelphia in that sense is gonna have the most transition and how they work him because it will change or spacing you'll scenes are often. Assault a verb for Toronto is like it's at least an easier fit to bring him to come and and just sort of find his way into that off. Yet so I'm Mike Adams who guided used actually works here proudest tweet yesterday the lineup that we've seen from them. When you local while Lowry are Greene's yacht come and Adam bock other plus six and a half spot plus minus 427 minutes. You swap out of pocket for Jonas down shooters we've seen there they're plus 21 point four and forty minutes and so his point was. If you see Gasol is a slightly better or better version just blatantly than Joan is down is that could be an upgrade that to be something you see was more regularity a guy who gets a ton of elbow touches who can distribute to guys from that area may be be an off speed pitch if you are like Paul Pierce and truly believe that could pocket the five is the best version of our. And you mentioned shooting it should be noted. At this point to solve this year is a career low 67 point 6% of his shots. Are on two pointers so he's shooting for farther away from the basket he's generating office from farther away which is something that can help and so. After all saddened on yesterday I know I said the seven sixers were too biased and Harris coming in that I think that two of America it's I don't know I I. Used to I did so with Milwaukee. Coming on these. I'd Iraq and we Toronto I don't know you have to drive and I urge you. Today I sure we're Toronto were chemistry like there. Lowry is never really really happy since euros in regard you don't know what's going all of Hawaii Leonard. I mean I I I just wonder about that Milwaukee everything seems to be hunky dory. Everything's injury you got young isu is just what a great personnel we got some cuts we're gonna play that drafted him LeBron hilarious. You know seems to be a fun guy in this team's got a role in right now that's my one concern we're Toronto. You can sell effort drowned the one and a half games by a stroke like stroke production has not been an issue again I went back to what I said this offseason the best team in the Eastern Conference record wise last year were added a better player in that trade for DeMar DeRozan and now on top of that you throw Marcus all here. This is I'd. I don't know I I I am I haven't seen anything from Toronto that's made me feel like all man what I thought about them prior is misguided or is going to change somehow down the stretch of the season Milwaukee may very well when it again when you've got a player a guy like John as. Who seems to be trending in that transcended kind of direction. Anything's possible but cool why Leonard so been there done that I think there's some value in that when you get to later in the year when you get to the playoffs.

Walked those Howell also in its place consider them an incredible opportunity Kovalev beat them you know it. Platform a we already had a football players makes him a greater bigger platform. To go to reach others you know whatever it is you're you're passionate about reading. I actually about the import all you know a lot of opportunity dirt. These situations are you teach young men how to beat. Right men and great men and in whatever capacity it'd look honor her husband that it made. A known that this is just or go do that. Are gonna camera why hall of Famer offensive lineman drafted in 19942. Rahm by the sea hawks played their play with the jets finish up. With the Tennessee Titans date time Parole Board seven time first team all brawl. And what I always love Kevin when the speeches come from a hall of fame. It's added I just right off the stats and anybody can see the stats and say oh yeah that guys' play put him in the hall of fame but everybody has a story. Of how they got there what the road was and you're story is a fascinating was you know military Brad grown up moving around in one of the stops. Was Germany where you actually is that the first place you'd learn to play American football and explain how that came about. They do at home we know would we moved to Germany trump came to a little extra room goal. Called my mom worked there at the PX on you know the commissary on the patient in her loss. Coach one important element in you'd simmer on broad base known as yes a lot closer yeah. Been there and that without systems you don't clean our football. Until you were ten years old so far a news that they cannot put our full all of our man by the name truck loads and Ernie who played into other teams. In the military. Neighborhoods. Around Germany and I talked all of the gains. Coast Moses taught us an IndyCar on a little. I'm talking over a game in our game didn't starter earlier. Accountant who competition in the world. Boom. Camara realize the teammate to work out that no word for everything you make some sort became Bartolo would move there early eight. If they do they got my first day of practice working on Obama almost looked well. There are bell and no doubt my lifelong goal and he stopped all the way to lose to another step in that process. Doesn't work there's no no I don't know what every told did so off. A message to all the people out there and youth football level the impact that you have is out is extraordinary. As we talked to Kevin why pro football. Hall of Famer former NFL offers of climate and also former elusive served two terms as the president of the NFL players association and so war a lot of different hats in your football career and I am curious diverted from now where you sit. A little more time to look at the game as a whole may be the way that you did then. When you look at the state of the NFL now and everything has gone through this season and we come up on another CB eight it will be up in 2021. When you look at the current state of football what are things that. If you were damn head of the players association someone that was given me involved in those discussions. You would look at is important for the future of the game for NFL players the college players coming up and beyond. I think through the biggest thing is also a business safety help the world or the players. In regards to build on the killed 18 and what I am as as your body long term. All of the guys who continue to look at data column I think there's no health care beyond our years of the plan anchors who is important and you know right now you played it won't play or years it seems though the eye opener of a healthcare. When you retire in. Absolutely nice to see players get rewarded thrilling service numbers something where. Of them aren't used Clayton Serb that old that luckily it would be really great for the orders are not for a whole glamour at least just the order. On that ultimately result in them on your money going to be there. You know people who say we're very long time you know. And I like what things on the well what you're articulate and yes a little bottles they give them the money to continue to grow although I know about this from irishman. No well the president and group discussions with the external CD negotiation. I don't come back and how he did you have those those pot of money on my I think and more importantly than anything you know. The officiating department under duress from the players that important the other team out there are over 8 o'clock so much opportunity open. Playoffs there's so most players' legacies could result possibly be gamers because of a human error in the game. And so I'm sure those will be journalists of course always. Commissioners will power took a lot of players or cause. Its ultimate guy volatile Harlow. Go going over zen about progressive insurance making it easy to bundle your home and car insurance Jason to temper tray with Michael and Michael junior we're talking a hall of Famer Kevin mall like. It has might just referenced former NFL PA president with a concerts that you just mentioned if you were leading the players now. Would you be passionate about them enough to tell them that they should have a work stoppage if that's what it takes. You know I good. I would be actually amount to lead my players to come we need do whatever we need to do. And they assured. We do so much fairer but that the game also looked on. Last time around. Talked that still Matlock without. This time someone else. That's not a man that situation or how they like it did 2011. He does. You know there's there's Luke Walton. Gave that they can't have more stoppers you know take it could be eight it is you know always be in foreign horrible happen others no -- no war no work stoppage you know locked out and you know. No walk out clause in the contract so it'll go to billion of the 112 contract or something happened. And we all know. As you met there Rome so when you're a quarter of leader. More often than not fumbled it down before duration of the PGA. Started camera why pro football hall of Famer. Played with Seattle the jets and the titans eight time pro bowler seven time first team all pro NFL 2000 all decade team. Jets' ring of honor went to Al issue is all SEC there as well and I know you are yours stick in coaching with the bears desist and all line coach. And now I believe you cross over with her for one year I think it was with the jets in your gonna join term at Arizona State as an offensive analysts all. Talk about that we all love her murmured her former our work may hear and ESP and of going to work for Herman getting back in to the coaching. Not a love term certainly corporate buy beer or my dad Ronald Howland their heritage. Or I mean I had him write my notes I thought here's my bad guys they're prepared but no embryos in my Thomas Arnold pairs. You know the Dodgers always. I knew all along ocean and the timing of attitude by many just don't get too cute high school. Relative but there's a subtle glow in college and daughter who's entering into her mirror and now he's back out so that's up until now. And so just over two years later well a year later you know I am. I'm not on the street Michael for a job we may dilute dilute do until Arizona so my daughter trying our current most of the hour. In the swell. How should I noticed you. While we're here to root out when the transition. There was good place. Reduced grade ten but I never broke loose and got them. A lot of analyst role that I men now. The only difference sort of college football analyst and coat on the bill that would doubt it. Part in the plan although I can't co players. And then in there girl with a cause or that guy can't an oh. I asked on whether to that possibility. But if you can hold the job Portland. They are there and automated decision and know him into the outdoors though. Who could be with a man like no words and then when he does go well like I do. In my daughter was going to be on campus that is you. And we love wouldn't look artillery. It just all the things made this school this day. At the college level than I have an outlawed it I had a great golf and do your. Is it beyond a doubt but not on the almost doubtless. What I learned here that I have a bigger impact with the younger guys. There aren't as thirty home could be a mentor to include feature we're paid to give him Maxwell Award. Whether you know and then of course so they have been really does have relationships now. You commit to a small holes buying. Great man. Then opportunity laden and halt console ball and no amount of impact barrier you know but yet you know well. You guys and follow months that are act Kevin mole like Kevin can grads aren't all the accomplishments and tremendous career. And being pro football they are men nicer time we appreciated thanks aren't. And yes remarks is sort of blood and Dustin can do it you know so thanks. It was all sort of one big Jaya jello mold very interest in where that's why. We've been breaking down the action from the NBA last night and of course the trade deadlines and help us figure it all out ESPN NBA analyst. Tim regular joins us in studio given the straight talk brought you are straight talk wireless has phones that's networks no contacts to me at the time we appreciate it. When you look yesterday at the trade deadline if we have to come out with The Who who came out of that as the biggest winner in your mind who is. Everybody's top he's basically but and I think of I picked one of those teams it would be fairly. Because we were opposed loan to buy shares are we sure he's at 41 points border adding another all star caliber player to that lineup right now. On paper second best starting lineup in the NBA resides Golden State is no question. But it's also the other guys they added to fill out their depth which was what everybody thought was a concern for this team you bring in Jonathan Symonds. Mike Scott James and it's bovine they now have depth in addition. To adding in another guy that can you could run their offense through offensively and a perfect fit. Playing awful Simmons in a B because to buy shares won the best catch and shoot three point shooters in the league even though is a power forward so. For me it's the top of the east is saw go to Toronto Mirotic to the box but Philly I think the biggest winner of all. And those are some names you'll you won't hear a lot but I agree the depth that Philly got to be as important as anything else because that's something they they they absolutely lacked. Gasol and Toronto how Zack and a war worth the Bok and what they're doing there in the kind of the rotation a wing team that likes speed and that's that's doctor Saul. Good point it's a fair point look he's such a great offensive players that you great passer. Arm he's he's a guy that moves the needle for me more of this that happened three years ago. I think Marcus all's not quite on that level offensively anymore. The biggest question is going to be how are you gonna close games defensively because their best lineup they put on the floor this year as many block at the senator. See ya come out there with co while Leonard Danny Green and Kyle Lowry that's their best defensive team clearly the salt is a rim protector. Some of the guys in a matchup she's gonna have in the Eastern Conference at that spot. You look at a Brook Lopez we look at a Mirotic. You look at even a darlings you Elin beat. He's going to be Al Horford. He's gonna have to guard guys further out on the floor that I think that other line up is more equipped force so. That's going to be the biggest question for the raptors it's great that you added a guy like the Saul he's a better player than balance Eunice. But defensively debt doesn't really fit in with what you're going to necessarily need to play those other teams in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs and beyond. Him under with us in studio here on goal of a window and Demi talked about what the sixers. Brought over in winningest on the they gave away it was Martell Fultz we know have been a story for a long time but obviously that is kind of reached a point of no return with that. Is that still a guy now down to Orlando Orlando Magic that's got any shot of becoming something in the sleeve we know the physical ailments some of the side we thought was mental on all that would shore read on him now going for low low couples. Agent have and living in that area and going down to that arena and seeing that environment for Marco fault and I look I was hugely on board with him I saw him are worked out with him in the summer leading up to the draft. I bought into it I know what I saw that Jim was on the best players in the country. I'm going down to Wells Fargo and watching those games. You have to be there see what happens just by standing up to take a sweats off there's an immediate posh and murmur comes over the crowd. The disguise your paycheck into the game and then. Don't air ball or turn over. Now it's it's merciless. Even basic plays became like mocking standing ovation it's like a basic outs pass for a lay up and they're coming out of their seats. Forget it he makes a 38 and it's a shut in shut it down could Freddy's coming down I actually thought it was an unhealthy. Thing for him even when good things were happening. He needed a fresh start. I think this is a combination of physical and mental eat grass and put a percentage or that I say 80% mental I think the wiring is messed up in his head right now the NG com each started it. Now he's lost confidence he's changed a lot of things that there were natural tool but not national anymore nobody does know muscle memory their freedom. He needs to go do it in an environment where no one's really paying attention. That's a good spot a little that a team like Atlanta look if you like the Phoenix Suns right now but someplace like that that's for Marco falls needed to and op. Where there's not the pressure scrutiny of being on a team this good if he had stayed on this team with what they just did it they're thinking they can win a title this year. It would just be your worst he might have been recover from. Getting out of there now I'm pulling for the kid I hope it goes well for him I'm not completely convinced that will because I think. There are some serious damage that's between his ears and also something physical that he's dealing with. And otherwise he could go down as one of the biggest Boston history this league and the sixers get reminded of their time to see Jason day of true. Retarded similar ESPN NBA analyst in studio you just mentioned places people aren't paying much attention to. For the best record in the NBA it doesn't feel like Milwaukee gets a tunnel of sulphur for anybody that has and this is a broken out or watched a lot of the box. How sustainable is the way they're playing in the playoff. Process it is extremely and I think it's a good point I actually had to do my ranking just after all these moves and and how does that play out I saw the Bucs want. Despite what everybody else did Philly has the most upside they've got like chemistry things that are out sort through and have even got a street apartment yet. I guess and I did do Gasol moved it moved to deal that much me with Toronto Boston is playing their best basketball here now. But they still haven't figured out how everybody can accept the roles the bucks to me the most complete body works start to finish this year their top five both ends of the floor. They've got a star that you really can't deal with. Terms of living has efficiency because of his life. And how easy it is for him to dominate you in the paint. And now they've got a stable of three point shooters they've got modern basketball. Oodles is right got to go in there he's the best they never happening on a soft Tupelo. And now they've got all these three point shooters around him very sustainable. But I'll say this now with those four teams. Any of those teams are capable of beating each other to seven game series right now it takes a guy have in a row off series an off night and injury. Any one of those 4 to be represented Eastern Conference and NBA finals and I would not be surprised. Our legs dog we know the deal didn't go down Anthony Davis to the lakers are wearing we know players in the NBA understand there are trades that happened and you can be part of a trade. What's your mentality now for these are young players with the lakers all of whom are on the block to be traded away and now they're not going to be traded away at least now. How does the rest of the season golf LOI said it yesterday this is to me like would be like a great reality show bright LeBron James going on a honeymoon with five ex wives. That's basically that's basically what we're talking about now for the last 24 games of the season right eye and so. To be in that situation for one of those guys. Note they were sending they had so much responsibility. And read on they were growing. Next thing this guy walks in the locker room. Everything changes for you overnight. And so is there some resentment there probably now everybody's different so like Google that a guy like Cruz and look at a guy like heart. Those guys play with such an energetic balance because they love basketball so much they're gonna be okay they just want a ball and they understand though that have so we're good for them. I worry about a guy like Brandon Ingram. He looks like a guy that is the bowl preview around a little bit very affected by this you've got to go trying to win games now with guys that know for a fact. On going to be there and do they have the emotional investment. With LeBron. Go through this like the LeBron raises his voice in a huddle now. What is that caring for these guys but that's my biggest question at halftime if you try to make some adjustment points to things out as guy's gonna roll the rise a little bit. By their life is changing because of him. And how they cope with that. A look to their schedule it's going to be tough by the eighteen you can we'll get a man. And I think that's gonna be hard to pull off it would not be shocking if they don't make the playoffs and kings and over that last spot a reality show would be great there. Just the cameras follow just. In the huddle just huddles still don't know about that trying to talk. Follow him on Twitter at legs ESPN as we appreciate I like really appreciate. What's not expect too much there's only one person out there that expect him way too much a part of this guy surely we know that is ridiculous father. Our real love America right. Everything has new wants nothing happens in black and white Tebow was gonna hate me again but I think there's nuance here you guys have to embrace the nuances like oil and there's two questions that life is not black and white it's mostly gray presented before. You know which one you want an answer it. Know your loving I love love love love you stick your mother and it's a statement in the new lover shot in the first employer know what's not and then you can laugh you can last night. Yeah I guess you don't do your job goal going to rush to buy dollar shave club buddy you're ready for work shower brush your teeth the matter what you do DSC as ever in the Unita right now. You get a dollar shave club started suffragists five box after starter set product ship the regular price if George at dollar shave blood dot com slash goal. I was first thing all the guys like song what I'm furlough day here is she right in front of me here but no let's fire grows still more shine. Later. On reviewers are still in Atlanta its own monthly about nap landed about this new area on the ground as signal my god. Break W bush from port. This time I American voters always had enough leg Herman season for the MBA questions. The deadline perhaps you can look there's a lot of shoulders brought you migraines rose get that out of the way all right all right worldwide. It'll be a mistake the pelicans to let Anthony Davis play the rest of the season lover shove. Listen I I love that I I think he should sit now I like watching Nancy Davis play from a fan's perspective I wanna see him play if I'm running that team I'm Sidney is bogged down there's only bad things can happen with him playing and possibly getting hurt. Love this sock comedy of errors of his form for the pelicans this is going to be you'd there's only the potential for disaster that's all you conceive that I am now I love it isn't even enough like I love the so much I kinda want the pelicans somehow and I know won't happen but in my dream world. I want to pelicans system for the rest of the season and hold them perhaps as it next season. Into the trade deadline just just send a message that. May affect their own destiny and just a sort of a job the lakers over for they had everything. The Orlando Magic gave up to march from Marco full flood or shove it which was a first round pick a second round pick and millions of Jonathan Symonds now it's no suppose in late first problem all right want to the thunder yeah I felt real errors later joined a thirty gallon. Her first round pick I don't have as much a problem all widgets all. I'm Michelle Obama say they didn't give up too much is kind of roll of the dice now for the amateur pays off great if not I don't I don't think they they lost a ton and a sauter have a problem. Any outside of the lottery in the MBAs a gamble dynamited for a franchise like the magic who I don't think upward trajectory is aren't some sort of steep curve right now taking a swing like this at least gives you something it's for mark helpful super very mutually beneficial it legs talked about what I love this for them. Are you of this excuse you show and yeah I love other slammed shut our provision please yes your answer I love it for the magic I showed that they gave up too much. I love it that they gave up too much they did I wouldn't give a Bennington for Marco faults of this one I think he's washed up and done I think the mental golf resists there though like them you you can give us that like. Can't pass it before some people yes but I certainly wouldn't bank a first round draft pick on the back to back and happily only good as it picked twenties and down might he made I'm just say sent around even if it's a late first round draft pick at least you have some hope like you've seen the body of work for Marco faults it's damaged goods at this point unfortunately. I wish it was different I just don't think he's going to be of. Worked in Perez LeBron acquiring Ben Simmons for me honest for Russell Westbrook was the biggest steal the deadline lover show how great is that he did that in the draft and drafting for the all star game. Our problem how many showed that 'cause it doesn't really immunity were really getting it down brass tax in this you know doesn't mean it was pretty fun when. God has tried to get Dwyane Wade thrown into the deal to get an awful bronze to embellish office. I'm gonna love it just because I enjoyed LeBron all tampering lineup on this one IG's. Closely as much we're gonna talk about John is that John has jokes today. Got a lacked as far as actually drafting a team and it's just another example the steals that went on for LeBron James and his squad I don't nominal love it I I think it's awesome just because a policy Russell Westbrook fee honors all over the place and also again the won't include any defense. All right it's lover shove it gold going to Aureus or any areas in news the bucks won the trade deadline. Commercial I love that. You know good there's part of me go to 76ers did pick up some depth on that bench him to vice chairs I do like a lot you know adding that that fourth top player. To that team but I edit. I'm gonna say the depth that help they got on the bench to go along with that. So I'm gonna show of this and say the one man emerges like he was a great pick up a big overall the 76ers won I am. A lot of just because you added something MPs emeritus of made sense with your team the operates well within the confines of what they do offensively tonic catch and shoot three players. For that team around you on some level. You're and I love it hello hello I was always trying to get back on their point and also I think we don't listen nobody there only and you know we're losing your real struggle with them yeah I'm wow.
