  • Let's transition to the defending champion Lakers.

  • Dennis Schroder is listed as probable for tonight's game against the Blazers.

  • He's missed the last four games after being placed in the NBA's Covid 19 health and safety protocols.

  • Lakers lost all four games They didn't play.

  • So perk.

  • What changes would shoot her back in the lineup for the Lakers.

  • Oh, everything changes.

  • Let me tell you something, George.

  • The Lakers need dinner shrewder like old people need so shoes with orthotics in it.

  • Okay, we already know what he provide on the offensive end.

  • Another facilitator, a guy that can create for others and can create for himself, but one on the defensive side of things.

  • Have you noticed?

  • Since then the shooter has been out that the latest defense has taken a step back because he brings the tenacity to that team.

  • He plays an old school game.

  • He's a pest.

  • He's still one of the few guys that picks up 94 ft.

  • And when you on that back line, especially a guy like myself, there was a center when you used to see your point guard picking up full court and press, and guys that brought the energy and the you and made you want to get into guys that put life into you on the defensive end.

  • So the latest getting dinner through the back is everything.

  • RJ, you can fix your face like you want, but normally preach the gospel right now, and it's just really okay.

  • Good.

  • Okay, so look, Perk is 100% right.

  • Look that when both him and Anthony Davis went out, you lost the front line of your defense.

  • A guy that, like Perks, said, picks up 94 ft, and he's not like this shutdown stopper.

  • But he puts pressure on teams from the beginning.

  • For the minute you inbound the ball, he puts the pressure on you, and then you lose the guy.

  • That's the back line of your defense blocking shots.

  • The Lakers are a top three defensive team, and then these two guys went out and low key.

  • Their defense and their offense kind of went to shambles because both of these guys are great.

  • Are Anthony Davis is great.

  • Shooters are very good offensive players, so he is very important to the success of this team.

  • At least the front line of your defense will be back, and these guys can be aggressive.

  • So having him back all the problems aren't fixed because the Lakers had some glaring problems over this stretch.

  • But it is a step in the right direction.

  • All right, welcome back.

  • We're almost out of time here for the week.

  • But before we go, let's hit the Celtics.

  • We've lost three straight and find themselves tied for ninth in the Eastern Conference.

  • At the moment.

  • Perk, you've been critical of your former team.

  • Who do you feel is most to blame for what's going on in Boston right now?

  • Well, it's Brad Stevens, because his lack of accountability, the Celtics have been inconsistent on the offensive end and the defensive end.

  • And when you start to see your role, players do things out of body on the offensive end.

  • Like Tristan Thompson, who's my brother.

  • I love the death, but catching it at the free throw line and trying to go between his legs and do hesitations to take guys off the dribble.

  • That means that he's not being held accountable and being a star in this role.

  • Watching Daniel Thais walking the three point shots early in the shot clock is just not gonna get it.

  • Watching Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown not put forth the effort defensively and fight like the rest of their teammates, that means that they got to say so and that they're not here or or not being told what to do or how to do it.

  • So it's on Brad Stevens not being told, not being told that I feel like that's a little bit of a stretch there.

  • Ultimately, the Boston Celtics.

  • They need to figure this out.

  • I think they will.

  • That's part of the growth for these two young stars that they have these two young all stars like they need to look at within themselves.

  • They need to look at their teammates, and there needs to be a higher level of accountability, not just from the coaching staff on down, because perk, you know, coaching staff on down.

  • That's to a level.

  • It's amongst yourselves.

  • As players you are now you have two all stars.

  • You are no longer young in this league, you got your extensions, you got all the points and everything, So raise your accountability.

  • How much are you willing to challenge your teammates if you're those two stars.

  • Well, let me jump in real quick, cause I disagree with both of you.

  • I think it's Danny Ainge who said that this roster is not good enough and it's on him.

  • Okay, listen, it's not on Brad Stevens that Campbell's knee is not great and that he hasn't played well.

  • It's also not on Brad Stevens that this team has not been deep.

  • Even last year, when they got to the conference finals, that was wait really quick and Mary with Michael Jordan said.

  • It is Hall of Fame speech.

  • Players win championships.

  • He never saw you.

  • Never saw a franchise or organization out there with a sprained ankle are playing with the flu.

  • The two players, the two stars, need to come together, and they need to hold more of their teammates accountable, including themselves.

  • But R.

  • J, let me tell you something.

  • Just like you work and cover the Brooklyn Nets, I work and cover the Boston Celtics.

  • I watch every single game, and I'm telling you what these tools with my two I c on the night tonight basis, they are not being held accountable.

  • They do whatever the hell they want to do when they want to do it.

  • So when I'm telling you something and this virtual learning right now, you need to list.

  • All right at the buzzer here.

  • Tim Bontemps tweets.

  • The Raptors say six members of the coaching staff, including head coach Nick Nurse, will not be on the bench due to covid protocols and NBA health and safety guidelines.

  • Perk.

  • Kyle Lowry gonna have to hold the clipboard tonight or what?

  • Yeah, Look, we can finally get his chance to audition.

  • So when he retired that to see what he made of Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content subscribe to ESPN, plus.
