  • going to start asking you about the Lakers and the close games they're playing and LeBron's minutes.

  • But let's all marvel at Lou Door.

  • Defense on LeBron here thinks is mesmerized.

  • Three straight overtime games for the Lakers.

  • They want them all.

  • Of course, that means more minutes for LeBron.

  • Frank Vogel says the plan is to be responsible, but to win the game.

  • Jorge Sedano around the horn to you.

  • Is it okay?

  • The focus beyond February wins?

  • Or should it be on LeBron's minutes?

  • Okay, first of all, we need to focus on lewd or a little more.

  • Shout out to Luthor, employing the Shane Battier style defense.

  • Who was the first guy who'd ever put the hand in the face?

  • Used to do that during his battles with Kobe Bryant and then blue door.

  • It added the two hands in the face, adding on to the Shane Battier legacy of defending guys.

  • All right, so here's the deal with LeBron Tony.

  • If there's anything he hates, it's talking about rest.

  • He hates the fact that we got to talk about him in his minutes and as he's getting older because all those things talk about his mortality But the reality is this.

  • It is February.

  • This team is focused on winning a championship, and there is deepest they've ever been.

  • You look at a guy like West Matthews who had four D MPs and has been a big part of them winning these last couple of games.

  • Mind you.

  • He started 70 some odd games for the Milwaukee Bucks last year.

  • Who were the number one overall seed in the N B A.

  • So that just goes to All right, all right.

  • You're getting a little bit lost here.

  • LeBron is playing more minutes in the last 10 games that he has all season to win these games in February.

  • Is that the right move towards Adana?

  • Um, I mean, it is in the short term, but in the long term, I don't think there we go.

  • I think he needs to sit.

  • Bob Ryan, I'll bring you in here on this.

  • The February wins versus LeBron minutes.

  • Where do you stand on that?

  • In general theory, they have to be careful about this because the most important thing when you get to the playoffs is not ceding its not home court, which has no relevance.

  • This year at all.

  • It's health, and so they have to remind him of this Now.

  • That said, LeBron James has been a minute skies whole life.

  • He has led the league in minutes played three different times.

  • Okay.

  • Hey, isb better than other people.

  • He's not like everybody else.

  • He's in better shape than the than the 98% of the people this is.

  • This is the byproduct of that.

  • Not to mention his mental strength and his metal desire to his desire to win, so But they have to sit him down a little.

  • One times they look LeBron, we can't overdo this.

  • I mean, they gotta pick their spot.

  • Surely there's gonna be a spot in the schedule.

  • Surely is gonna be a game when they can sit him down.

  • But the fact is that that in he can handle this.

  • They just don't want to go too crazy having Blackistone.

  • First of all, Lou Door, it was playing the Marcel Marceau defense.

  • That's what I would call that.

  • Tell him about it, Bob.

  • Let's get let's get the LeBron's minutes right now.

  • I don't worry about it.

  • Why?

  • Because he averaged 38.3 minutes per game for his career.

  • You look at the top 25 minutes for games, guys in the history of the N B A.

  • And there's only one guy who's playing today who's in that top 25.

  • This is not a guy who's gonna sit out games.

  • This is not a guy who needs needs Gregg Popovich's rules.

  • He's not Kawhi Leonard.

  • He's not even.

  • He's not even Anthony Davis, who has missed the last couple of games nursing that Achilles tendon.

  • So you know what?

  • This is what he does.

  • He stepped up.

  • Um, he's playing 41 minutes the last three games, these three overtime games.

  • He's about winning.

  • And this is what it takes with, you know, you brought up Marcel Marceau like no one else.

  • You know what he did?

  • He invented the first mute button.

  • That's what he did.

  • Emily Kathlyn join us here.

  • February wins versus LeBron minutes.

  • I don't think we're talking about the real motivation for him, which is winning an M v p.

  • He hasn't done it in years and look entering the season, all of the focus was on what a challenge it would be in the short off seasons and historically never been done before.

  • But historically, athletes have never had the resources that are available to them now and the advances we've made in sports science or so significant A couple years ago, Mav Carter said that LeBron spends $1.5 million a year on his body.

  • This to me reminds me so much of the Patriots underestimating Tom Brady, assuming he would decline at 40 because that's where quarterbacks typically decline.

  • But of course, he didn't because of the stuff he's doing off the field.

  • This is the new blueprint for an aging superstar athlete.

  • George, you want to add something?

  • Please go ahead, Tony.

  • While he spends all that money on its body, he spends that money to ramp up to a certain point to be ready when the games matter.

  • And the games don't start to matter this year until May.

  • You've got to save him from himself a little bit and maybe a tough conversation for Vogel.

  • But he's gotta have it.

  • Bob, you look on your face.

  • You want to add something, please go ahead.

  • Yes, In 1961 62 the year in which he scored 100 points in the game.

  • Oh, by the way, Will Chamberlain average mawr than 48 minutes per game played?

  • Thank you.

  • What?

  • Oh, because he played every minute and then they had overtime games.

  • How does an incredible that is?

  • 100% correct?

  • Yes, the answer to every who the answer to every scoring record is wilt.

  • The answer to every minute man record is will, and he also played basketball.
