My life's work for and so it's Meehan net and we crap we do love the dual coffee yeah. We do we go walk I do laundry in vacuum it's very exciting it is exciting it really is these are lines that are. These early and is led the vehicle at all times the right moves very quickly and it was done in San Diego. It's so wonderful down there seventy and sunny yesterday that rainy very rainy before that. Look California this you know after years and years of drought California is getting into a few for mother nature and is getting the US for you got it now yen a question. Although I feel like eventually I do feel like you will live in San Diego at some point really yeah I feel like the end of this program will you. Will be you moving to San Diego I won't be you Guinea fired. Or any sort of why would I give this I just feel like eventually you are gonna get a case of disposed of those and you're gonna go down there one time and be like screw this I'm not coming back. And we are there won't be a big howdy do or anything like that will just get an email Hussein and that Isaac rob no longer works for the company and you'll just be in San Diego I feel that that's how they show that what that mean I could see that happening but maybe when he's retiring now. It's every time he goes down nobody on I five in the sides finally radio I was feeling a little ladies man stays in San Diego it every time he goes. Now I do love it down yes but Jason amounts to their epic I know where my bread is buttered in his we knew I wanna ride your coattails. As long as I can until I developed a drinking problem removed the Florida Keys then you can retired as Indiana if you were to do that yes I would probably follow suit only not to think he's I would just go down there will hopefully at some point that is how this sense is you develop a golf prom I developed a boat problem and we both to build a drinking problem just can't separate coast Saturday it has every -- party have fit a golf problem yes. And so numb. Look I'm not aligning in my eyes on that area. That's a family down there it's wonderful but look at this look at what we have looked at the beautiful Pacific you don't just you don't just walk away now on this however I will say. That on the the flight down. It seemed nominee speak for the entire plane. Of 200 people okay. Who wide broad flies statements rod sweeting and that's what this show is always seemed like every single person on there was just simply going down for the weekend getaway from the rain I understand that in the second. We landed it any easier on the weather on Friday and Saturday there was demeanor wasn't just rain media was there mudslides is bad yeah. And we land and it's pouring in what everyone's looking good here either who will write I assume that. A little better radar appear as well everyone's just looking nature like comic I now we chose the wrong. It is weekend I would say this when you go someplace that's supposed to be nice and you get off the plane and it's not it is not it is a kick it square. In the go and dance couple years ago we went to now week. And you know it's windy yeah we got there and it was it was dark over clap our overcast the wind was just how lean. And the rain started coming down a little bit and every one of the planes ending because when you get off at the airport it's it's got a Dorsey. You don't walk like all of the global walkways are all outside. You could tell there was an airplane full of people like F this now ten hours later it was fine but yes there was a dark cloud. That descended upon the air this is not what we signed up for is not why the Napoli screw this seem very real consideration yes. Nonetheless asthmatic there's a woman seen as mean said that. Because note this the flights it was them through do in the kept the head captain in there's one seat still in the middle they had a full flight in the grossing X we said yes she's not coming. And this flight Sims label wine. In that very town might what if this I mean she's is not coming who doesn't show up. Yeah and she said well she rethought the trip due to the weather down there. Wanna make a bold statement here I have never. I've never done that on on that when you book an airline ticket. I could lose a leg and I'm still finding a way to get on that airplane really all Leo would delay had once I get where I'm going in but I giddy on that airplane ticket has been purchased. I never by the chip insurance because come. I water I'm getting on that damn airplane and we're going to. With the 100% hit. Is this is a foreign concept to me I looked at her in the stewardess or the fights and even looked at me and I was watching intently at Los having. Most third wheel rolling through there the third spoke checking everything out eyes across dealer demean and Alec her lab wired them it's by the way it's raining it's not like it's now. Yes they did there's not it's cold rain is not a gravitational shift there that did this San Diego is gonna fall into the area you're from or again the little sprinkling watch deal with it anyway there was one in DC for you on the plane they go what did I miss at comic con fantasy thing here we try to aren't a lot of blow hole model ultimately I can't say for certain it appeared it was as high as any person we've ever seen yes really was win. He was very enthusiastic that's saints yes it took the Michael roker interview and it turned it on his head and brought it up a notch. Any was wearing a leather vest and he kept playing with this here piece yet he kept adjusting the hairpiece. Violently yes on camera not like it was a shift now you talk about the stuff we did not beat you he. Brought up here piece a couple of different times three was I komen have to make an adjustment. And I didn't know what to do with it I wasn't prepared for it plus we are trying to get him to talk into the mark Toney kept putting it down. It was these it was best when dealing with the Erica Estrada I feel like he just strap yourself in and see where he's gonna go so he's an animal. He is the most. A I'm tending to the best way to put it. It was the most chaotic interview ever conducted in my twelve years of doing wow you good luck controlling him so what did you talk about. Actually in conversation in the answers he was actually fairly yeah. Stables you know kind he made sense. But when he wasn't answering the questions it was all fidgeting and opening and opening the mouth and there and one of the handlers that kind of bring your round was a good looking younger gal and any time he saw her it was like bird what it in the it was you we lost him for like 32 spoke. Potash Cox. This is partner John John. Obvious or her. Unser baker opened jets. There are to steer Erica Estrada I feel like that partnership. Is very much hate this is mutually beneficial to us neither one of us a rest to work it get like forty grand to go do the sorts of things. And cuts his job is to just keep Erica Estrada between the navigational buoys is like without their writes yes very similar to that and what Cox is very skilled at that he. You can tell that he's used to he's used to it so do you think that he's sick of it. No no he's like oh this is totally worth the money it's totally worth the money seem to have a good relationship yeah. Yeah they seem to go along so well may talk big it's opened 3540 years ago and neither one of them if they don't want to Everest to work again. Mean you can make a real good living doing these sorts of things couldn't everyone comes until would you agree you are you take the pitcher and you don't sign that the autograph and I think it's good to be punching John well I like hearing this because that goes with everything that I remember from the show yes you know Ponce was Lou was the wild one. Was the old dead perfect I think that that's what they're like I think that is a very accurate statement. And couldn't have been nicer guys those struggles with super nice. You know we do we asked him but he was talking about the battle the network's stars in early grizzly Adams a filthy cheater by the way. Cheater meaning is on his life now they they you know member of the old battle a network stars. They sort of we're like this all the different actors get together and compete in weird like Tug of war competitions. Erica Estrada still bitter after all these years that grizzly Adams cheated at. In order to win the Tug of war competition is the Adams general line dead and Hagerty I think it is not the past. Yet that was mainly seventies. What battle network stars as an eighties thing. Letting go much Erik Estrada now we still I think there was just hard feelings. And I heard one thing before we get to sports and here Eaton. Because there's a lot of sports. Today there a source sports today a lot of NBA sports so much NBA sports well and I think a lot of people not sure to make of the the rumor swirling around you or for the trailblazers. Yen down much started don't button. But the fact that well maybe if you haven't heard. Bear and a blazes are feeling calls for everyone on the roster including Damien Miller and I think that. Gets people little look puckered. Yeah why I don't know I don't know again I don't know how legit those are the wool wool will get that one of the questions I heard that. You mean. Were marred Gannon I got morgue and it I got this on Twitter followers on Twitter I have never been as flustered. As is that it was actually quite hilarious to listen to yeah I didn't know we saw Dario who speak for like two minutes yeah. But from 947 Dario. I she came over and drop money. Yes we were discussing the fact that her Booth was gonna be set up next ours again and every year this happens a comic con in every year it jobs that's because no one wants to come on our program. Because of her tractor beams that there were people Lindsay Adam West we never get Blake to the big ones because they always end up. With her big it's always end up at various like that so apparently she was listening in on her way and her husband listens to the program super nice guy former goal keeper of the and his name is Dallas Dallas the duke lacrosse team here. Well I'm talking to my brother and I feel a presents. Cut off to my left hand side off camera. And my brother is kind of looking out that way and as you look on his eyes and I turn. And they're they are yet common right happening it was she justice cat woman knows she wasn't but. Which is little disappointing still. They were out all their glory and they were heady right for me. And just her breasts or not you occur to nobody they into there room before she does write it's like they turned the corner and then. They announced their presence of the authority yes they don't let loose they bring the high heat before dropping the 126 curveball on you and next thing I know I wish there was a a former or not authority current Portland TrailBlazer in the building here. Recently. Completely derailed do those things derailed him yes. Yeah I believe it hasn't had that was walking by you is giving the tour of the studio and you can see India everyone's. And he was they was like hey this is you know did the guy giving the tour was like hey this is you know. 92 point three is a classic rock station this is a 947 this and that's Daria. And all I heard from the hallway was. How men. Yeah yeah now that elicits a jail. I didn't have time to listen the dam because lips were heading my way and I was more get it on Lovett and it was straight dead yeah. Anything get you off your game yet threw me for a loop now good for her she's one of the most famous women in Portland and super nice and I am going with the narrative that we made out. You didn't but we didn't look at how the -- humiliation in the sixth grade sense yes we made out and nonstick into that. Does the most famous Portland up tops I think so. I think they're the most famous may be storm large if you nodded but not her boobs. She's just famous for her performances I think those are the most famous for the nut jobs yeah. Wow I'm not congrats I'm going with my made out with their I'm happy for you yet now were conceived I can say OK okay. Once past those that there. No if here behind you in the studio movie she wants press goes up against there near when Colin Cowherd was sitting in the chair who yell like. Along press purple yeah she did. So she sounds good looks in your game was a wildcard yes how did she enemy Erica shot at yes now. Punitive she interviewed everybody in everyone was a big big fan. Including myself. It was a magical time at comic con well I'm I'm sorry I missed it back at it and boy it was something else bill that's now comic con went and I tell you went well. It really they had women interviewed today we are getting every pharaoh brown. Former or induct only Oregon duck. Is who is headed to the NFL com fine yeah great story and the guy was had his leg amputated two years ago and now here he's at the combine yes he will be coming on at 515 right after the hot five at five. And now we look forward to that in the meantime just so much NBA talks. Yes a lot of going on and I mean to this don't happen very often don't and spent his name that cousin's about doing because it does not Willard and that's I think everyone important and and like half the NBA looked and said that's what. It took to get. DeMarcus Cousins. Yes that let's get to it and shake up in LA yeah. By the way that's not we need to dig into this knowing that it all Melissa stay with a C sixteen on the stand yesterday it was a holiday that's not who are here. It's trying to do react next time there's a group. Did you get the inevitable what would just get fired yet. I did presence there and Sprague got fired what the hell's going everywhere and everyone got well it's just a holiday that's a strong run at some downtime Lena. I here's our pull. Rumor and you'll some of the concrete news actually find this stuff a lot more interest in the National League. Yeah it is I mean this stuff sells its GC what's the tabloid stuff as opposed to but let's be all honest he got what Boston and Cleveland. And then do you have anyone or is it just he pencil Golden State through. May chase ended may be San Antonio may be the spurs baby. Yeah that's come a point is that you know this league is. More so than the other leagues you can really follow into the trap of who all come off the court shots Leno who's gonna play with who who's going to be traded through because. That's really your only hope right it's like most teams are sitting on you know we may be good we may not be Ed doesn't really matter because no one's winning other then. Cleveland article states so the real fun comes in okay. How do we get to that level and one team according to some not mean that some think that one team. I down their New Orleans, Louisiana did that this weekend is able to do it to somehow some way. Find a way to pull off a move to be actually relevant like really relevant in the NBA which is so hard to do so that's why this stuff gets kind of fund to Danny back and forth because that's really what all what basically 95 personally he's trying to do. We are you have to in order to to win you have to have two of the better players in the NBA and the problem with it is one guys that are that are of that quality. Don't move around very often. And two unless you're a big market team are not coming to you via free agency if you do deal for one see what Derrick Williams Carmelo Anthony. Some glad that the whole you have to give up just leaves a smoking crater in your roster and you're just you're trying to fill one guy doesn't work but if you're into war lends. You went and got arguably the best big man in the MBA and you gave up. Enough. This is that just doesn't. Happen which is is amaze me that that's what it took you to get to Marcus Cousin that I give a DeMarcus Cousins carry some baggage shall we say that that doesn't happen I'll stop you there. Pollack saw. Yeah yeah it does happen but that the thing was with Paulus that was obviously a money -- and Pau Gasol was not viewed that way not like cousin not like still I like America's got a human ripped them off they did and what and what happened championships multiply they want to. Once Powell came over to the lakers CIA does. Occasionally have where when scratches there head and says well hell that's what it took I think everyone in Portland I think everyone around half the league said that's what. That's what it took to get to DeMarcus Cousins. What I know we don't why didn't we. Make that phone call no plays and fans there are saying and you've got bloody who by the way. Plotting alone you're not doing yourself any favors CNN on your mind the bloody green explains in how we took less. Well yet let's just let's play that and hold on just work going a mile many slowdown. That. I about exploded. When this happened nine trillion Abbott did a poll question today is on DeMarcus Cousins and it's a 1080 depend outcome. And it reads after trading for DeMarcus Cousins how bright is the pelicans future. If four options watch out warriors. Definitely top four in the last not as bright as many think. Or bogey equals disaster log on vote and antennae to defend our common isn't quite a debate going on about. What this actually does for the pelicans and would this mean long term but. But they with anti Davis and DeMarcus Cousins new francoeur holy crap yep that is so whimsy that come like that a long long. Time may have to go back to Duncan and Robinson I mean you're you're talking and legitimately. Probably two again did the DeMarcus Cousins thing it's the the baggage. Clouds little bit but you have two top ten. Top 1112 issue if you wanna bump cousins back you have two of the top twelve players in the league now bull from the front court. Did that Dickey said that doesn't happen I'm trying to think of another combo. That was like that. And it's EU gotta go back aways and the potential is game. But it's all potential. That's right eyes married by had to vote on that I would say not as bright as many think it is I just I think cousins is good but he's a hot head. It's intriguing to think of those two playing together but at the same time you know who knows of the works to they have a good enough roster outside that. A lot of question mark still here but they certainly are much more relevant. I'm now than they were a couple days ago it's just that. For some reason even with Anthony Davis New Orleans just. Has sought that right like we thought two years ago or two and a half years ago they've made with him as a blow they're even without the go before the cousin saying yeah. It is like. Did dirty to be one of the top teams in the west this guy special and they have just. They're really good they made the playoffs and gave a nice showing against Golden State the your golds they won their title and everyone thought that he. Maliki said in and they were a dud. The next year and this year it's when they think they're ten or eleven games below 500 but. You added the best true big man in the game two are ready. Maybe the best all around player not named LeBron James in the NBA. In early driven by stars you've got to move on now legit stars. Yes we'll see how they do the vote artful questions penny to cannot come a here's sliding. And I think that the cigarettes and really on his brain. But he this is this is akin to me when I heard some Michael boy he's never gonna with a slow down via. I did need to say this but he did and I think this is akin to member when. Which it said I'm not chemistry major same sort of thing that never know. Who went away from him and stuck to him this will never. Ergo away from most like to look at less because. Go to go to Google. And now they're. And then you would you have a better offer because we'll call his goal total socialization is Goosen with a certain forward. Well I could do those sort of discuss about. The process it was a big process Soros. So what does he mean talked to those agents does that mean yeah that is he's saying that are the agents rip the rug out from under Mina the Nike dude trying to throw them under the bus pretty much did that your job is pretty much saying that he realized that there was almost like collusion against him. And that he was he was forced to take this deal because it was only going to get worse. I've never seen anything quite like it or he's discovered for his owner his owners of mad man he's due. And so he says hey while look we're not NN signed dozens if we do it's in May have problems aren't going away as 200 million just ticketing yet. I did I monastery just I could just be marching orders but. A first round pick and and right now a field but he healed and that's. And that led to yield what it took. To get the best true big man in the game baggage or not they give up a firsts. Which is top three protected you know. And give up buddy heels. Icing Galloway who graduated. And then a second. Many there was a second thrown in their carry guarantor embargo eleven now that's right. And I think the first imparted I think the blazers are gonna look and say we could've done better. We could've put together a better package than someone if they were in on the I don't know I. I'm just that I think there's every team in the league you did that probably sat back and said I can't believe that this is all it took to get him out. And I would love to know what really happened I mean obviously there's talk of eating he was doing 200 million dollar. Extension and so there's talk that the owners basically just said we're not gonna pay that any cost it's something form. And they waited too long we've got the bloody scene that there is like the GM collusion. Against him in that did the offers were only getting worse is teams realize that they were in a panic to move him when they realize too that cousins may not. One assigned my cousins has said and his agent said he wants Dickey wants is test regional water yes and that he wouldn't want to you think gonna give opening for him up not knowing taken resigning because he wanted to eat this move by the way in and what will we talk about that. Did the agents pull the rug out. DeMarcus Cousins if you were resigning in in. Sacramento it was about thirty to 35 million more than he could anywhere else. So she wanted to stay in Sacramento want I guess he loved the area and he saw the emotional kind of Agassi you know ease a pretty good guy in the community and it's 3035 million dollars extra to stay there with the extra year on the deal. In so basically what he was saying is EU trade for me I'm not resigning I will walk because I'm not gonna get that deal anywhere other than Sacramento. And so basically they're saying that he poisoned that and that body was in the state of panic in the king's knowing that they had to get some being formed and so no one was willing to give up any bingo you've got snookered. But if that's the key body you have to realize that before they should have what let's take what was it was on the table yet to lower week before two weeks ago that's your job don't. I'm not see any agent gaining Ron that's just this that's just how they were operate out if that's his ball. And nobody got duped. And that's why you authority has no been no he played his great Claire. Maybe a Smart guy I don't know Advani has no GM experience make her any concede this coming right. But it's like why apple what body diva it's a this is what happens when you put a guy in there that is eased it to making these types of deals he's agents are Smart they know what they're doing it's all about leverage. And that to me is just like at an ultimate leverage play and it and it dot diva with the king should've done. Was they should have said this guy's headache he doesn't like us we don't like him we know he's dead by. We will win this is value the highest and let's trade him and his value as the highest which was. Like two years ago. Well and if you realize that you were never gonna pay that extension way to wake Ricky said we don't wait till the very last minute right AJ can do this like there are thirty dumb ones yeah it's thinking that anything would change even if he resigned him. Even if you re sign him nothing was your problems with him we're not going to go away so they've known that. For years stupid can you be fully can be bloody did not stick which is why once again the bad. The bad organization stay bad and the good ones rebounds and I'm. You know from from kind of the debts well. This is gone with the lakers to watch this you watch this can be a real dumpster fire everyone's Lahti with the lakers do due date or did today and Godard and watch out. On oh yeah there's a lot of people that are singer ray is now I think they're getting killed and they should get killed. And so will get to that coming up to but I do wanna address what we were alluding to there's Damian Miller trade rumor out there. But it's I don't know how substantial it is so we'll get to that. I'm coming up next. Here's Mike. Where Isaac can sue god to maybe go. Yeah sounds like the cousins deal. Was really more about that donor CNN would you tell them do that again. It's really more about that. You know because there are some that think that. The owner wanted to keep cousins all along. Any hints of body couldn't trade him but then when he had a change of heart. You know it's it's it's almost like to relate diva just can't win although I would say. You know I get it working with these meddling owners particularly want to don't know hell they're doing. Can be very very difficult but at the same time that that's just another part of the job the U hugest have to figure that out like yeah if you're Claudia to convince him they out did the best time to trade DeMarcus Cousins was two years ago. Do you believe that the rumored that to true it was willing to give a quandary Drummond who is another talented. All star level big guy not DeMarcus Cousins. But a very talented player agent if if that was part of the package. And and you got but he both Ford instead I mean you as body have to go to him and say. They look this is it you know this isn't going to work either we re sign him. Today 200 plus million dollars that he's gonna ask for a we have to deal and we have to deal him now while we got some kind of leverage. But if if there the one it confuses me is if the if the owner wanted to keep him all along. Then keep him mean supposedly DeMarcus Cousins want to stay there because he had thirty to 35 million reasons to stay there. And so now that Ed the last minute you decide that you're gonna flail and end up with this package which was just a joke. And and I get that for people sand. If if if DeMarcus Cousins doesn't resign in New Orleans then you know what's the then the new world is give police know because you didn't give up anything form and the chance to re signed DeMarcus Cousins. The chance to have a season to convince him that he's gonna play alongside. Another star in the NBA and this is going to be good for you. That's that's worth the price you gave up if your new. Yes he's from Alabama yeah and in New Orleans is one place that he is always said that even he went into doing ego. And yes right I think that's risky for New Orleans which again why the prices so low that they're saying hey we think we can put amongst anything Davis we can and they'll get along ML and their old actually be able to resign him but maybe that's why. The blazers. You know inner anything. On one trailblazers were involved in this have to think they would you know they have been on the phone at some point but. Maybe that's why they didn't. Jump on anything because you concede them putting the other package even more in Justine and then. There what aural landscape for both with DeMarcus Cousins resign what he resigning if you carry Simon there's no way yet now. Unless something New Orleans has a better Chancery signing some other clubs including Portland and maybe that's why alchemy the price was so low for New Orleans and and not somewhere else but still and the owner loved buddy Gil to hit the I just feel of them a guy that's a below average shooter in camp clearly good defense and can't really stay healthy and that. Yeah you even tried due to resign him. Well but they're saying hey. Do what the blazers David Aldridge is worsen with the cousins what the king's Philip cousins because. The end of inform. That's true bit too to be fair I don't think they think he beef. I do not believe they thought he was leaving yeah I think they thought within the money if they know he was lead they would they would they would a delta area. And they thought that the legacy of staying here the continuity the comfort level we had here and the fact you can pay him way more money. But that's usually the trump card. We don't talk about wanted to go home but this is two guys in Iraq that have left 2530 million dollars on the table where public cousins didn't cousins wanted to stay allegedly. Well I don't believe that further 3030 plus million dollars. And I don't know well I mean eighty it's hard to know that Aldridge left he left on the table Aldridge did take a little money significantly less money to go play down a sentence him. Well any hill cousins is now a member of the pelicans and their very interesting with those two guys. Now there are Damian Miller reverse David the only thing that that was out there was this from. Legion hoops and you know legion I do not so at least it's a follow on Twitter. And it says that they ours is follow for your latest news median rumors in the NBA features Johnny as in Sports Illustrated CBS fox sports where. Other they have you know three or send 5000 dollars an Arab but they tweeted today. I'd the blazers are taking calls and listening to trade offers for Damian Miller kept. In an imprint sees it says via amigo hoops now amigo hoops so they're saying that that salmon Nico who is an NBA insider for fox sports Ohio. He's. I guess he's connected guy around the only have I heard actually worked here his name is getting a little bit more both of last season herself with the reports noticed yeah. Yes so. Asylum back him look at not just legions tweet that Sam. Amigos tweets in I didn't find anything where he said anything about. I Damian Miller so I don't know where they got that and now a Niko has come out and said blazers update. Team. Team is indeed asking about game similar but in told those calls are being rebuffed. Yeah which is about kind of what you thought there is not. Four or five players in the NBA that you wouldn't take calls for. Obviously Cleveland isn't taking calls for LeBron stepped curry. You know that there's a handful of others that your not your New Orleans isn't trading Anthony Davis there's a handful of guys that are beyond. Even making that phone call but don't you listen for let's act like Damian Miller is one of those guys if someone calls you. I Neil Lucy show and will take a phone call on that led. You know it doesn't surprise well if he's hanging at the phones and things but nothing none does surprise me that he saying no I I can see why but when you're 23 and 33 in going nowhere near as I teach you answer yes if you listen a lot more than if you know this were last year during the playoff run deaths and now you think enough were we have got a bright future with Willard and CJ and also some of the shine I think it's come off the two guard did you undersized guards with the same skill set. And you know you can't treat CJ right now not that you would but he can't because of that the contract situation. And so the only one you have is is Leonard and so yeah I do you think that there are some people that are gonna poke around map but. I do think eventually pick and we've talked about it I think you may see one of them will be moved I do but I don't think it's happening right now now says I don't know to be Damian though. I've said all along that I think they're gonna have to move one of them out just because. They're they're the same player I just don't think those guys are gonna get them where they need to go in that has been. Larry Lee evident this year. But. That's not say they will eyes believe that if it's done right. They will be in a better position. I'm moving forward if they did move one of those guys that they really don't anything else trade other than. You know first round picks that are middle of the like right now they have. What 102128. Via the sign and he gets you much. I mean I say not me much those are trade pieces but. Not FEMA can get the blazers. Back in return. Nothing that they have anyway of all their assets. Like trading CJ or trading even Damian Miller yes but I still think if one of those guys dealt. It would be CJ the guide trade mean Willard. Sees it hasn't played point guard quite as well as lowered mean that's he taking a big risk loads more of a known commodity CJ is that an undersized team could score. Cool but you know he can get to. Some stuff in return you have to give up your franchise player. I just think it'd be adjusting if Portland. Continues to go the way that they're they're heading here let's say for the ends up with a top five top six pick. In a draft it's littered with guards bigger guards by the way not to Serbia undersized guys. If you ended up with a a 6566. Guarded the wondered that too. And you ended up drafting it then. And that guy can actually develop into something I think that to me is when. The trade makes the most sense. Well then you can free yourself up to move one of those guys for a big front court piece knowing you Marty have. And kind of the replacement may be balanced that out. And never will retired this goal state and we'll go state god Klay Thompson and they had Ellis they had curry and then Klay Thompson came around and someone had to go and that was Allison and Golden State. As it really looked back. All right text 55305. The lakers make in moves and will that affect. The blazers 346 on the van. Prime time where Isaac can sue god to be okay. I think everyone perked up today around here because one it's fun in the lakers. Just an hour or so later yeah. Because the justice it seems like since old man bus died they've just been amassed. Well in and did the whole Kobe Bryant thing they handled that really poorly they've basically chose to honor Kobe Bryant. And instead of actually trying to be good for about three to four years like I said any nick since the old man bus died yet it suspended. One joke after another they're mixed up check. Has been neutered. By Jim buss. The younger bus. And he got turf and now consumer. You know the blazers. Well first of all Kupchak was the one. That wanted Rick Salomon when the lakers were looking for a coach. Which. Glorious higher immunity great hire them busts. Overruled him and hired Mike Brown. And that happened I've brown has been paid a lot of Mike Brown not coach people. Well I wanna title. To Mike Brown win the title I think so many with little brownie now are on about yeah you're wrong about that not even he can win a title with LeBron now. Mike Brown never won a title. 'cause I was structured won five titles as a general manager not held seven Kobe in general I just think it's inherently easier in Los Angeles it is just easy. But cut check I think is really Smart guy and he's just been neutered yeah over the last. Five years again since all members died things have shifted their enact guys just being kind of like he's been right now the storm and on the other one was the Andrew Bynum deal. In that was not Kupchak that was Jim buss so cupped Jack's kind of been railroaded out there and he got fired did. The don't know Mitch Kupchak is loot he's done as lakers GM and bus got fired by Jeanine bots yeah well I guess he got. He got fired these. They gave him some sort of weird well of course he's fan aluminum upstairs and some quarter obvious re won't do I look T your immediate peers are released eutectic although there in a way out of the let us know when your Dunleavy another one. And then they put Magic Johnson you know in charge of that franchise Magic Johnson. When I don't know if you follow Magic Johnson on Twitter or any of magic Johnson's. Dealings. But hole my god. That was not a wise men of if you listen to Stephen A Smith gets he said it's about damn time his board spans art. Stressed how right. With tired of life Johnson I never listened to Stephen A Smith so no I have not -- I am fascinated people that think because you worry a great player that somehow we should do is keep you control over things and blog OK you don't yeah have you seen his tweets it's weird it's Magic Johnson is not a very good MBA in my pocket and recording released an analysis on Twitter you know he's a great guy everybody loves them yes he's a hero in Los Angeles he's an accomplished. Michael massively accomplished in bowl humble on the court cannot record a gray business guy but hopefully he knows enough but you say realizes that stay out of the way I don't think that's his brain I think that was his money. He did his money from is from basketball and he has done some thing invested in some things very good business but. Yet but I again I don't think that that's his. That's like comic got a guy so Smart and not be ozone like Phil Jackson. Where is Phil Jackson like do you trust Phil Jackson's basketball brain right even though it's been a disaster for him in the Artie now this is the problem in the NBA get these owners man and it's like. Stop these Smart people just can't. It's just it's this murky waters they have to navigate right look at body look it so maybe all these guys are on the same ports like. It's really hard and do their jobs while but magic is not like this bright. Business mind match he's just made a lot of money playing basketball and is you know because it takes money to make money he's made more. Down in LA we're in business but I that he does not like the sharpest equalized in vidro. To me that he is in their handing the keys to that franchise to him in a time when that franchise has never been worse off. And what are they doing in his big idea at least like on Twitter was to just gig co owner Brian involved picked. They Kobe what what role do you want again it's this Charles Oakley thing of hey look what you did force on the court so. Let's just go ahead and give you whatever you want it makes no sense to me. Well Jeanie buss. Once she she split with Phil Jackson it sounds like magic went to her Internet. In he can only be ground work via say you know. Mean I can help the end here is you know however many weeks later I he's hired as president and he has just hired his GM a lot of people thought that. Neal host day it would be on the phone to him stat any probably was because it's no secret little chain wants to get back to Los Angeles. So we hung up on Steve Ballmer. Any called. He's he stops sucking up to him for five minutes and circus and had success called magic but to no avail because. The lakers have hired their GM and it's gonna be. An agent rob pulling guess here's go behind the agent is Kobe is old age it. And he's been a prominent agent for years this according to a Jewish or ASCII he has strong religious of league exacts engineers deals. Recruits in deep 2017 draft class. Yeah and he's he's James hardens agent Eric Gordon it would Dolly's code result agent and by the way this is the new Golden State. Model there's a gold they did goals they've hired a power agent I now obviously. For for people wondering you have to do to now not be an agent but he will begin the process of separate himself from those players are turned over to whatever agency he's part of but you can't via an agent and the general manager doesn't quite work out that way. But this is what golds they did with those of Bob Myers earlier rob Myers Bob Mac umpires they want bomb I sounds like their top target was him yeah and then visit he said no because why would you leave. Golden State. For the lakers. And then they went out on that. Particularly you said the free finished poorly just set. Up that Golden State why would you leave the Golden State. To run the lakers and you if I have if if you had said that. And ten years ago. Even laughed off this broadcast you would have but. You're in. The thing about like Golden State you're really separate Cisco's so it's the only cure and a crappy part of the country. I think you've got a roster that it's. It was impossible for you to screw up. They will be good. Will be a title contender for the next ten years and you wanna go rebuild that mess in in Los Angeles thanks but no thanks. So the game went after Meyer's second in command and couldn't get them until now we're going down this road. And I just I hope that it's a well thought out higher in this isn't just well Kobe Bryant's guy. Just peers are doing magic is likewise one out bringing Kobe that's my first deal so you just got to go because it's it's CoBiz guy. I certainly hope you know what the hell you doing down. The magic should give you know and I mean no confidence that the note down to doing that's the that's the whole point in cannot say he can't do it because. Again heading up the lakers. Is not as hard as heading up Portland or heading up New Orleans there are heading up these smaller market teams don't have won LA has via the make no mistake guys. You know they've had they been in on different guys. Over these last employers that sucked he doesn't wanna go play there we'll look more guys are more used to be this idea that they are going to Los Angeles everybody wants to go play Los Angeles and that's not true. Unless there are other guys there they can help them win a title. LaMarcus who bought dad and he said their entire presentation to me was about what Los Angeles to do for me in my brand knees like why don't we actually try to win some games you went to San Antonio. It's just it doesn't have the same lower all of well they haven't managed they have they have advantages over 95%. Of the league. New York does to in New York is big dog mess for how long now the lakers have the lakers have been relevant for. You know forever but they do go through periods. Word you know they kind of fall off the map and they did that before Shaq came there. But it's so much easier to climb out of the hole when your in Los Angeles. Then when you're in Utah or or lender New Orleans or you're running right if you run as you mentioned the next. Okay bullied Samir tax by five terrify them get a stop watching here coming up next hour on the Penn.
