  • playing on a tender ankle.

  • What a performance.

  • This step back.

  • Three for the game winner.

  • The shot heard around the world.

  • They win it by two and overtime.

  • Luca had 43 points, 17 rebounds, 13 assists that Syriza's even at two games apiece.

  • That's where the drama was, and this is where the conversation begins.

  • Right now, Richard Jefferson is with us, and we will have Stephen A.

  • Smith with us in just a moment.

  • Stephen A will join us in just a moment.

  • RJ, you.

  • When I opened this hour talking about Luca, let's talk about what to expect from him now.

  • As we go forward Tim Legler said on this show last week that we're entering the decade of Don change.

  • Do you believe Luca is on the verge of becoming that player, these signature player in the n.

  • B.

  • A.

  • As some of these older stars sort of get into their final years, you know, it's funny we talk about that.

  • Meanwhile, Yannis is still very young, probably on his way to a second m V p.

  • But I think the way Luca does it is different, right?

  • You look up it and we were marveling at LeBron James having 25 15 and 15 and Luca almost did the exact same thing.

  • He this man goes out and has, you know, 43 17 and 13.

  • So he was about to have a 40 point game with the same type of numbers.

  • And Luca is just different.

  • He's special.

  • I don't know how he gets 17 rebounds.

  • I kind of understand how he gets, you know, double digit assists.

  • But he also goes out there and scores 40 there.

  • We haven't seen too many players that have the ability to do this night in nine out.

  • And don't forget you remember this greeny Earlier in the season, he averaged a triple double over the course of a month.

  • So this isn't him getting hot.

  • This is just who he is, how he plays.

  • And he's on Lee going to continue to get better and smarter.

  • Stephen A now does join us Indian Stephen A Smith with first take, starting in 28 minutes.

  • Good morning, Stephen.

  • A.

  • Let me just come to you and give you the floor Any direction you want to go on.

  • Luca, obviously yesterday was spectacular.

  • This Siri's has been spectacular as you were watching Luca donkeys.

  • Right now, what thoughts are going through your mind?

  • The brothers.

  • He's big time, no question about it.

  • I've had MBA officials telling me that at this age he's better than LeBron James was.

  • I think that's a bit hyperbolic.

  • I certainly don't believe that because I believe that LeBron was absolutely phenomenal.

  • But you could make that argument because of Lucas shooting ability.

  • We can't deny that his poise, the fact that he's not scared of any moment and then to be going up against, and I don't think we can ignore this.

  • For him to be going up against the Clippers defense.

  • That is supposed to be big time with Koala.

  • And with Paul George.

  • I know Patrick Beverly did not play, but Morris is no scrub beacon ball and he can defend.

  • When you've got a team like the Clippers who are rough and rugged, they go after it.

  • They play with intensity and whatever and this dude scores 40 in two and two of the four games, one of the other games he was hurt another game.

  • He had 28 points in 28 minutes.

  • They can't seem to stop him.

  • And then last but not least, I don't know if anybody noticed this.

  • But Kawhi Leonard is one of the top five players on the planet.

  • He is elite.

  • He's a two time champion and two time NBA Finals MVP, that first title that he won that first NBA Finals MVP that he won greeny.

  • It was because of his defensive prowess supposedly against LeBron James, even though LeBron averaged 28 in that Siri's.

  • What the hell was co wide landed doing, switching off Luke Adachi last night and allowing the smaller Reggie Jackson to defend him?

  • I think that was a mistake on Kawhi Leonard's part.

  • That's something that you have to step up and demand.

  • I'm not switching.

  • I'm a stay on this dude, especially with poor Zynga's out.

  • Everybody and their mother knew that Luke Adachi was gonna have the ball in his hands, Which means Kawhi Leonard New.

  • Why were you not on this brother?

  • No, but just the way I'm thinking, Yeah, no, Doc Rivers was talking about the defense and that switch after the game.

  • We've got a Stephen A Smith and Richard Jefferson with us.

  • I'm just gonna ask cause I saw what happened.

  • They were having a little trouble with Stephen.

  • Is camera Can I come back to?

  • Oh, yes, we do.

  • Okay.

  • Excellent.

  • Stephen.

  • A Very quickly, Because I want to make sure we save some time to talk about Kobe today.

  • But I do want to get your take on the Sixers.

  • They get swept out yesterday.

  • Anyone who knows you knows You began your career in the Philadelphia newspapers covering the Sixers, and now we see what might have been the end of the process if it were up to you.

  • What would be the changes you would make in Philly after they get swept out of the playoffs yesterday?

  • Brett Brown has to be replaced.

  • His head coach of the Philadelphia 70 Sixers E.

  • I take no pleasure in saying that he's a he's a He's a good man.

  • He truly, truly is.

  • And I'm certainly not questioning his knowledge of basketball from an X is an old standpoint.

  • But at some point in time, when you're entering your eighth season as the head coach of the Philadelphia 70 Sixers, you know what?

  • We gotta look at that you lived off the process The process was straight garbage as far as I'm concerned, and nobody blamed him for that.

  • But you've had three or four years with Joelle and be healthy.

  • We've been Simmons in the lineup, and this is what happens.

  • And so at the end of the day, I question whether or not he has the pulse off these players, that he's maximizing what he has toe work with.

  • And that's where it becomes problematic.

  • Ty Lue, Mark Jackson and others.

  • This coaches out there that are believed to be individuals who can touch the pulse off players of that magnitude.

  • You've got to give it a shot without wasting away.

  • The years of the Philadelphia 76 is Butler and Reddick going.

  • I understand that on that's a management issue as well.

  • But they should have been better, particularly on the road this year.

  • And they're horrible.

  • Road record to me is the ultimate indictment against Brett Brown.

  • I think there needs to be a change and I think there will be a change, I predict within the next few hours.
