  • But I'll tell you right now, who's coming?

  • We'll probably have a chance to better off too well and beat against LeBron down the stretch.

  • We owe it started E o.

  • And then come back and drop triple doubles.

  • The what he's doing right now.

  • Did you hear Alex?

  • Alan.

  • No, this is This is Brooklyn, James.

  • He's not the same guy.

  • He's not Houston Harden now.

  • He did flop, and it was a It was an epic flop against CO I and it was beautiful.

  • It was beautiful.

  • But the rest of what he remember how and j.

  • You know, and I've always been honest about this.

  • He was mumble rap to me.

  • I couldn't stand him right.

  • He didn't entertain me.

  • Sure he was.

  • You know, he put up numbers and sure, he's got fans just like mumble.

  • Rap does.

  • But it's just awful to me.

  • It's not good art, but now what?

  • I'm watching him in Brooklyn.

  • He's a different player completely, and I actually enjoy watching him play and it makes me It makes me very uncomfortable.

  • I don't want to like him, but I do.

  • I like him in Nets jersey.

  • All right, you just question them.

  • Doesn't that make you rethink everything that he's been he was doing in Houston and the Mike D'Antoni, that style, I mean, a play that they were playing out there?

  • I mean, look him him along with he is masterful by making people around him better.

  • I don't think he was showcase properly with the right personnel around him in Houston.

  • That's the problem.

  • Well, that that's a That's a great point.

  • But it also will tell you what he thought of the guys around him.

  • He told you what he thought about.

  • He told you what he thought about him.

  • He didn't make that clear.

  • Hey, made it really obvious.

  • Like, man, I can't win with these bums.

  • I'm tired of carrying everybody.

  • You put him with people at his level, and he definitely you can tell he respects the guys around him.

  • Look, it's hard for the Nets was going to be not Katie.

  • Katie to me, is the He could play with anybody.

  • It's not Katie.

  • It was Kyrie and James.

  • Can they get along?

  • Can they coexist?

  • Can it work without there being friction.

  • You know who's gonna, you know, who's gonna argue over the ball.

  • Who's gonna argue over Dominate the offense.

  • And it was Kyrie.

  • That's like, I'll play off the ball and just be a score because I like doing that anyway.

  • And you can worry about setting everybody up and making sure the ball gets distributed and handling the basketball and having the high usage with the balls always in your hands.

  • Because you love that and you're a pretty durable player.

  • It's It's become a perfect fit and which makes what makes them so dangerous.

  • J But as they've won six in a row and they swept the West Coast five wins in the West Coast, both against both L A teams, let me ask you if they're missing something, I think it's sandpaper.

  • I think they need a gritty front.

  • Everybody's talking about adding this, adding that I think they just need one tough dude.

  • You know, if only there was a Rasheed Wallace in the league today.

  • That's the kind of thing they're missing on this team.

  • You know Kurt Thomas, you know, give me somebody like that on the roster uh, you know, a Ziebart would say the gun.

  • I need one tough guy to give them a little bit of grit that I think that's the one thing they might be lacking.

  • Do you agree with that?

  • Do you think they need something more?

  • I dio I would say, you know, is a guy like Andre Drummond Could it be that document?

  • Ah, C c.

  • Alan hates that one.

  • Alan hates that one.

  • He wants Tucker.

  • He wants a guy that can that can shoot the ball into the corner pocket.

  • You know, from the corner pocket, if somebody has a gun that that could come off these pick and rolls and still be able to move his feet.

  • You know, Alan, that's a great one, man.

  • I'm not gonna lie to you.

  • P J First off, I know this from doing the boardroom.

  • P J and K D are extremely tight, do a lot of stuff together.

  • Plus, PJ's really tight with James.

  • I actually really love that.

  • People think he's done and he doesn't have to play 38 minutes.

  • He can go.

  • And the thing is, well, when they go up against Embiid, alright, they have deejay.

  • But then you bring in Tucker against Embiid.

  • Then all of a sudden you've got a guy that's not afraid of him.

  • He's not going to back down from.

  • He's gonna get he's gonna get dirty with him.

  • And I think you have Thio.

  • Yeah, I think you absolutely have to.

  • Its partner on Alan Ha Bart Scott.

  • We're talking with J Will from K Jay Z as we're going through the MBA and J.

  • Like I said, I don't think it's a guy that's gonna have to play a ton.

  • I think Drummond would also demand the ball more.

  • Don't know how it affect your defense.

  • You know, I feel like you've got the chemistry where it needs to be with Brooklyn.

  • I don't think you wanna add another Alfa personality.

  • I think you wanna add somebody that brings toughness and understand the role.

  • And Tucker's done that everywhere he's been.

  • And by the way, his sneaker collection.

  • You bring that to Brooklyn, he'd be a superhero.

  • Oh, he'll be Brooklyn's finest.

  • I mean, he could do this, play this so we're able to get a Tucker and then you have a guy like Andre Roberson, who was a wing.

  • Stoppard.

  • You figure like now you got a lot of great to your team out, but there's a different team.

  • I like that J Let me ask you about what's going on in Dallas.

  • Barton.

  • I were just talking about it.

  • There was a there.

  • There's a report out there again.

  • It's a report that the Dallas is sort of, and the word wording was sniffing around about interest.

  • Potential interest in Kristaps Porzingis is now it that that would suggest they're all of a sudden having buyer's remorse and is that trade now suddenly is lopsided as it looked when it happened, I will tell you this.

  • If you want to keep Luka Datuk around for a long time, you better find him a suitable running mate.

  • Nine of this for stocks.

  • I'm looking logic.

  • I'm watching what I'm watching.

  • Hey, there's parried.

  • There's parity in the league, and I know we had a lot of contact tracing issues to start off with.

  • But I'm looking at my roster and I'm saying this is not enough, man, Not enough.

  • Like when Portland comes back healthy, look at Phoenix when they're playing, Look at the Lakers, look at the Clippers.

  • Look at all these stars together, and you know Porzingis is fine when he's healthy.

  • But is he?

  • Is he helping us?

  • I would be Tim Hardaway, Jr I like him when he's making shots, But is he really like?

  • Is he our third superstar?

  • Like you have to start thinking about this.

  • If you're Luca dancing and I know if he's thinking it, you know it sure as hell Mark Cuban and company were thinking the same thing.

  • Yeah, I'm trying to figure out what's to play out there.

  • I feel the same about like, Zion.

  • I feel like Zions too big and too good for for for New Orleans that he needs to get out of there.

  • I just don't like the makeup of that team.

  • I know Lonzo Ball has been rumored to be out of there, but I don't like the makeup of that team either.

  • I don't think that team has enough stars or the right type of players to be successful, really have a real push the C bar between between assists and scoring.

  • I think so.

  • I'm like Luca council, like 60 plus points a night, man.

  • Wow, that's you know what Harden was in Houston.

  • That's a hard load to carry every night.

  • After a while, it Zion, that is gonna do what Zion does.

  • You're gonna punish people.

  • And I understand all that stuff.

  • But like when your team relies upon you to score 30 plus every single night and you have to give, like, 10 to 15 assistant making jobs easier for everybody.

  • A lot of weight that carries an individual player.

  • Man.

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