  • Yeah, you're here.

  • You're part of the broadcast.

  • Last night.

  • You got the last word last night.

  • We're gonna give you the first word this morning.

  • This is your sport.

  • Um, your biggest take away from last night's game one was that the MBA missing opportune time to recede the entire playoffs.

  • This does not need to be the NBA Finals.

  • And it's with all due respect to Miami, especially, they're not having Goran Dragic's, uh, planter fasciitis band being hurt.

  • Like this is where I'm not saying what worked out this way with the Clippers, because who knows what happened with Denver and everything?

  • But you just wish that they would have receded one through 16 key.

  • Just the best teams.

  • No more East West.

  • Look, the reality is coming into this.

  • We all know we both agree that the Lakers gonna win.

  • No matter you said five game six games, whatever it might be, right for now, it seems like a sweep.

  • It seems like it's imminent.

  • Um, but this is just where I wish every team that I paid attention to in the east, whether that be Milwaukee, whether that be Toronto, whether that be Miami, whether that be?

  • Boston?

  • I don't think any team was good enough to beat the Lakers.

  • Florida Clippers, right?

  • So I'm much have rather seen C one through 16, regardless of take out this whole East West thing.

  • And this was This was a year with Everything happened in 2020.

  • Let's just find out who the best team waas.

  • But in the NBA, the Lakers probably still would have been there.

  • Probably still were the best team, but I just think we would have seen the matchups would have been different.

  • It would have been.

  • It would have probably been more, obviously would have been more competitive, because if you take out this format and put in the format what you're talking about, like the N C to A.

  • To a degree, um, you could have seen a Portland team maybe go a little further or Utah team go a little further.

  • May have seen Denver.

  • I mean, it may have been it may have been Denver a little bit for me to be really may have been the Clippers.

  • I mean, talk about that matchup with Denver and may have been the Clippers, right?

  • Uh, the Clippers might have faced just the Lakers.

  • I'm not saying they're going to get there, and this is not being disrespectful to Miami.

  • Look, I Miami felt like they were overwhelmed last night.

  • And in scouting report he you and I were talking about via text.

  • I said, like Ella's ability to knock down three point shots would be the difference maker in this ballgame because they made 11 in the first half.

  • They shot 65% from the three point line, and once you do that, it opens up the paint.

  • And that's where a D.

  • LeBron just started attacking.

  • The game was over.

  • There was nothing they could do.

  • So you always wonder what Miami like.

  • Where was your scoring punch once like?

  • I mean, after the end of the first quarter, I got two great nuggets for you guys because you love these more social.

  • Okay, so the Lakers ended the first quarter on a 25 to 31 the biggest run throughout the course of the game.

  • The Lakers went on a 75 2 30 run Ah, 75 to 30 run in the first game of the NBA Finals.

  • Wow, that's it.

  • I've never seen anything like that before.

  • 20 to 22 point, right?

  • Yeah.

  • Great.

  • 75 to 30 run and KCP knocking down shots.

  • He played well.

  • Danny Green knocking down shots, a d knocking down threes.

  • LeBron attacking Jimmy Butler.

  • Rolled his ankle twice.

  • You surprised he's still even in the game.

  • Going drag.

  • It's no more it Z.

  • It was tough to watch a game.

  • I want to talk about the heats injuries with you in one minute, but just a reminder that we essentially have a commissioner.

  • Adam Silver, that is progressive as anybody, the 1 16 thing that Jay had broached.

  • That's something that other people have brought to Silver before and said, You should really consider this across the board because the East has been so much weaker over the years.

  • Traditionally, then the West completely understanding Last year, The heat.

  • Um, excuse me.

  • The Raptors won the NBA title, so that is something that has been broached before.

  • But maybe in this a typical year, it's something that could be addressed again, moving forward in a more permanent fashion.

  • They talked about having a tournament before they had to play in tournament.

  • Maybe this is next J on the heat.

  • Obviously, you mentioned the injury to Jimmy Butler with the rolled ankle dragging for 34 banged up.

  • But what do you think about Bam?

  • Out of bio shoulder injury and what it does to the heat size inside?

  • It hurts him a lot with way the Lakers were shooting the Rock.

  • I mean, look, embrace your Rondo's been shooting 45% of the three point line in the bubble key.

  • Rondo's out there hooping, so you can't really play zone because they understand time.

  • Location.

  • They understand different pockets to shoot the ball in LeBron James a d catch the ball in the middle of the zone.

  • There's really nothing you could dio.

  • You're done it.

  • And I think, though, when you you say bam, you know they're in trouble.

  • Because of that, I felt and and it's not because I'm a Laker fan, I felt like there was gonna be in trouble anyway, because we got three bigs that we can run.

  • We could move a D to the five if we choose to do so.

  • Big shoulders is always off force in the middle, with Dwight Howard calling big shoulders.

  • Dwight Howard.

  • And then, if we ever decide that we want to get into the JaVale McGee game for some minutes, we could always do that as well.

  • So I always felt like they were outmatched, especially when we go big that they were in trouble.

  • Because even even if you don't put LeBron James a d in Dwight Howard on the floor, that's an average of about 6 11 e.

  • I mean, that's probably from doing the math correctly.

  • Z.

  • You probably could do it calculated really fast in your head.

  • But when you got 27 footers in a 68 dude, that probably average out to about 6 11.

  • That's a lot of size.

  • Man S O Dwight got exposed defensively because of all the pick and roll stuff that they do.

  • But with LeBron James and Andy did, they got banned.

  • Two quick fouls.

  • They drove the guy.

  • I'm two quick fouls.

  • And then once, once they did that, it felt like there was no there was nobody to protect the middle of the paint.

  • And that's that's where the that's where the Miami Heat are always gonna struggle.

  • If you attack Bam, I'll tell you one thing, his shoulder being hurt, his risk being hurt.

  • You could be sure that every time he's back in the game, they're gonna crack into him again.

  • Was he hurt?

  • Pride, I suppose, said it might have been a possible Well, he had hurt that risk in the last series of the show, Austin and his shoulder to, but he ran into Dwight Howard.

  • It was that and one where well, it wasn't and one.

  • But he banged into him, and I think that just kind of probably messed it up even more.
