  • how proud of you that the Lakers finally got to number 17 in terms of the championships and tying up the Boston Celtics.

  • I was real happy for LeBron and Anthony Davis because the they've been out of sorts, you know, with the teams that they had been with and they came to L.

  • A.

  • It was a perfect a parent of two guys.

  • Kind of reminds me of the way that I teamed up with magic, you know, was perfect pairing of someone with experience and that fresh new blood that makes everything work.

  • Karim, I gotta ask you what you think about winning this championship in the year that we lost Kobe Bryant?

  • Well, I I think this is an incredible achievement.

  • Its's a lot more than anything I did.

  • I didn't have to go into isolation for three months not seeing my family.

  • Not, you know, I have my my meals done the way I'm used to it.

  • Just having to be in total isolation.

  • Just me and my my hotel room.

  • I didn't have to contend with that.

  • So you know what they had to deal with mhm guarding their life.

  • You know, you got to guard your life from this.

  • This virus, it's that deadly.

  • So, you know, they took on a big challenge and they came through, so they have a lot to be proud of.

  • When you look at the Lakers you were a part of.

  • The Lakers organization is an assistant coach back in 09 and 2010 when they repeat, it is back to back champions.

  • Do you see this opportunity for a D and LeBron and repeat?

  • Oh, yeah.

  • They definitely can repeat.

  • You know, they, uh, management is gonna have to figure out what holds to fill in the lineup.

  • But you have a wonderful core of guys, and if you can keep them together, no reason that they can't win another championship or two.

  • Karim, you mentioned you've been involved in social justice pretty much your entire your life.

  • You go back to those legendary summits in Cleveland in the sixties and everything you've done.

  • I mean, even what you're wearing right now with your clothing line with the fist there for Mitchell and Ness, what did you make of this particular pairing of social justice and what we saw in the bubble from today's NBA superstars?

  • Well, I like the way they're going about it.

  • They have a plan.

  • Uh, they are.

  • They're rational.

  • They they're patient.

  • They're explaining to the American public what it's all about.

  • Um, you know, the killing of Mr Floyd during summer really was a big change in America because all Americans saw what black Americans have been contending with for 400 years.

  • And, you know, it was a moment of great opportunity.

  • And I hope we continue thio, build on and get the reforms that we need.

  • So that way don't have to go through all these tragedies when you had an opportunity to see the n b a in the bubble.

  • But the MBA as a league, getting behind the players in putting the black lives matter on the court and just sending a positive message.

  • How did you feel about that?

  • I'm total proud.

  • I'm just proud off the MBA.

  • I'm happy that we have Mr Silver at the head of the N.

  • B.

  • A.

  • He knows what he's doing, and we haven't had anything happened that was out of line and that that's pretty incredible.

  • You know, both the major league baseball, you know, they had a number of guys on the Marlins and a couple of teams come up Kobe.

  • Positive.

  • That didn't happen in the NBA.

  • Uh, you know, the the NFL had guys had a couple of teams that had breakouts, but the NBA handled it very well, and, uh, it was able to pull off a total tournament.

  • I think that's a pretty amazing.

  • And, uh, like I said, they deserve credit for that.

  • We've been having this conversation all morning long on the show.

  • Kareem, about the Lakers.

  • Mount Rushmore.

  • Right?

  • And so you're on it.

  • You're on it, but there's three others that have to go on it.

  • You're not going anywhere.

  • You're cemented there.

  • Um, what would be the other?

  • What would be the other three to follow you?

  • Jesus, that's that's gonna be really difficult because you got include Jerry West, Wilt Elgin, Baylor Magic James Worthy Kobe e run out of names yet E gotta make room for LeBron.

  • So you know you got to make room for shock.

  • Makes room for shocking.

  • There's too many guys there, you know.

  • The Lakers have been so fortunate Thio attract all of that talent over the years, you know, starting with George Mike and and ending up now with LeBron and everybody in between is wonderful.

  • What?

  • Anthony Davis isn't gonna be on that team.

  • Come on.

  • Yeah, well, I think I think in time, I think in time, I think in time, Anthony Davis certainly is going to get there.

  • Um, because he you know, he still has some years to go to catch up to your championships.

  • He got us one, but he needs six to get to where you were.

  • Well, you know that.

  • That's I think we'll enjoy seeing that unfold.

  • You know that.

  • That's why we'll be down there at the Staples Center.

  • You know, in our seats and watching a take the challenge.

  • Take on the challenge.

  • I think that za wonderful.

  • Let me ask you this, Kareem, before we let you go, what part of AIDS game on the blocks he needs to improve on.

  • I don't think he needs him.

  • He has all the tools.

  • They just gotta learn how to use the tools the right way.

  • Um, for example, in this last game they took out, uh, she's, uh they took.

  • They took the Dwight.

  • Yeah.

  • They removed white and put in Caruso because they had get better defense on the perimeter.

  • And that left Anthony in the middle.

  • And he had that.

  • He covered that all by himself.

  • He got the he got the defensive rebounds, He blocked shots, made it impossible for them to get those easy baskets around the hoop.

  • And then they had Crusoe guarding Duncan and those other guys on the perimeter, and it just took them out of their game.
