  • sitting here talking to you guys.

  • I'm resting.

  • When I get my car and head home on rest.

  • When I get home, I arrest tomorrow.

  • Um, you know, I think this whole narrative of you know LEBRON needs more rest, or I should take more rest.

  • I should take time here.

  • Um, it's become a lot bigger than what it actually really is.

  • I've never talked about it.

  • I don't talk about it.

  • I don't believe in it.

  • Um, you know, we all need more rest.

  • Shit.

  • I mean, this is ah, fast turnaround from last season on.

  • We all wish we could have more rest, But, you know, I'm here to work, and I'm here toe punch my clock in and be available to my teammates.

  • All right, Max, you're a bandwagon Lakers fan, so I'll start with you.

  • I'd actually have more respect for you if you became a Nets fan at this point.

  • But that discussion for another day, Max, do you think the Lakers should be worried that LeBron is playing too many minutes at this point in the season and at the age of 36 off course, because LeBron James is an unchartered territory off course, Lakers fans should be considered.

  • He's playing too many minutes.

  • Dave McMenamin, who does excellent work on ESPN dot com Go check it out.

  • Since the start of the month before the start of this month, LeBron James was averaging.

  • I believe it was 43rd in terms of number of minutes played per game.

  • It's not so bad.

  • He's a you know, A lot of great players play.

  • A lot of it's understood.

  • That's not top 10 or something like that.

  • Makers are doing fine.

  • Since the start of this month, it's 11 games since the start of this month.

  • He's leading the league in minutes played.

  • Now, The reason that's an issue is because every single time LeBron James takes the court, he's setting a new record.

  • Sort of like Tom Brady and the NFL.

  • No one has ever played at his level, having logged this many minutes this many miles on an MBA court, ever, never, not even Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

  • It's never been done before, so every time he takes the court we're learning something new and what it seems and it's natural.

  • A D goes down and you pull even harder.

  • The sense with the team is we need Mawr from our leader.

  • This is why Stephen A.

  • You and I debated this yesterday.

  • Does LeBron need to doom or sometimes less is more.

  • Sometimes when you pull too hard, it could be counterproductive because it's not like LeBron normally slacks off.

  • He does everything in his power, always to help his team.

  • So now we're asking him to do even Mawr or or really is he is putting it.

  • He's asking himself not a good idea.

  • Number one, because it seems the team and his own performance regresses slightly as his minutes go up.

  • Understandable and number two knock wood.

  • Stephen A.

  • You want to avoid a catastrophic injury, given the number of minutes this dude has already played in his career, Given the fact he never really has an off season cause he plays in the finals every single year, given his usage rate, everything he has to do, not to mention his off the court responsibilities, which are more than any superstar in any league on the planet Earth.

  • Yes, I am worried as a Lakers fan about LeBron James playing too much well, Normally, I could just dismiss what you're saying because it's a sport of basketball and I don't know if you should have a license to talk basketball as much as you do personally, but you know it really in this particular instance.

  • And Molly will laugh at this because I'm allowed to lean on football.

  • Max Kellerman, toe, have fun with you this morning.

  • I appreciate your take.

  • I appreciate you start your take off at 10 a.m. Eastern time.

  • 7 a.m. Pacific out here in L.

  • A.

  • I appreciate you starting to show off this way because you you know you've got me.

  • You've got me inspired because, you know, Molly, um, correct me if I'm wrong because I think you were sitting in that chair.

  • Max Kellerman started on first take on July 25th, 2000 and 16.

  • Max didn't think I would remember such a thing, but I dio And on that particular day, E, of course, you're absolutely right.

  • So, Max E July 24 Don't interrupt me.

  • E did not interrupt you, Max.

  • I did not interrupt you.

  • And of course, you win debates because you take nine different takes.

  • So nine different side.

  • So that's how you ensure that you don't lose.

  • But here's the deal.

  • July 25th, July 25th, 2000 and 16.

  • That was the day that Max Kellerman said that Tom Brady was over a cliff set or would be in short order within the next 18 months.

  • Over the next five seasons that we have been on the air.

  • Tom Brady is with the 44 Super Bowls and won three.

  • And this is the expert that does that, that that wants us to take into account how you know what age attrition for the time are something to be concerned about.

  • You would think, Molly, that this man has learned his lesson about sitting there and writing folks epitaph a little bit too early.

  • You would think that Max Kellerman would recognize greatness and how there's an aberration that occurs every now and then, and that there are people that defied the US.

  • Even Max Kellerman is ultimately came out and said there are certain people who defied the odds.

  • Which brings us to LeBron James.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
