Steve -- there Trixie is still out -- I'm Steve currently a TNT analyst joining us on a show where are you right now state. To ought to look at getting a let -- Diego at all join me you -- chance -- -- -- -- -- USC Kansas K okay. And so it's a college hoops -- ought to know the church got. Audience it turned and saw I -- a few games -- fox sports'. -- during the regular street and just let it all that. It's good nudge you wanna give us a preview Kansas -- coming off that loss to Davidson earned USC what he -- Well packed and pretty doubt that you don't know. The altitude you have it but they -- the doubts that they've got -- -- years. But I think they're they're better -- that -- surely get. More firepower that they're players. But at people guard -- they they play at the end. They got a chance is there any but I think campus is going to be. But a little angry after the Davidson -- Trio of angry I was -- curious if you heard from commissioner stern after you -- are pretty vocal about the Lakers not getting Chris Paul did you hear from the commissioner. I looked -- I think you have my job I have number problem. To this point. Wait so you don't hear from the minister but then you hear from the commissioner when you joked about LeBron James on my show and it -- 101000 dollars. Ten -- for joke but it but it -- you know. -- -- ago. I'll stop alone pretty good but it sure -- speak it. I'd summarize your criticism of the commissioner and why -- a veto that deal to the Lakers. Why I think trot. Would this really screwed up that -- you hear about it explain. Aside and that it it don't they -- in terms but but we don't -- Portland. Our ultimate -- -- what -- -- that I understand that. Like the process which which really aren't -- -- -- That you do it and that that trade never should have got that sort of get a if they can't let that big play -- -- that -- got veto power. They -- sold Dell Demps while that deal was born on that -- rocketed up particular too much money. -- we don't like their future to be sure it didn't -- -- that by allowing it to to go all the way it should be off the order occasions. And then getting it and decide it. After two -- all preachy and I'm. Aren't signed off on it it just hit a terrible situation. Yeah that was my problem that if you let these guys do their jobs and then all of a sudden at the eleventh hour you tell them that you don't like the job they've done. The guy I just it was the wrong message to send I'd rather that you said -- I wanna see this I -- sign off on -- I -- know in the early discussions not at the very end when you're ready to pull off this deal. All you waiting for as the commissioner rubber stamp the. -- you see it collateral damage in the Lakers. Pick a panic -- the next day entry don't. Used to this huge relief. Distraught that are there that are opposite distraught that they finally. After star Arkansas. All the routes that are back -- want to. That it just -- but he had it in a compromise situation and -- taxer elderly so it felt. Yeah and I ice understand what -- -- saying when numb you look at how this affected decent two other teams here in the Clippers end up with Chris Paul. Do you think it was a panic move by the Lakers that you you trade Odom and you trade into the defending champs. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Take somebody into the trade exception that was created by fielder deal or you -- -- it could be reached it yet here we are you know ten days later. That they thought I don't think so. Understand. You know being a former general manager guys on your team beyond the obvious but it say I want traded. That's me out straight the speed speed did you come back. Practice by six days with the team tomorrow. You know he starts but it's something you're going. I think you're going to be okay emotional. And silly little things that aren't really surprised by what they'll get. Yeah I know Lamar is a sensitive guy but with the Lakers he's very valuable I don't know how he'll be with Dallas but. I I just think that you got -- Saito look this is business we tried to get somebody who was gonna help us you know down the road. You know you gotta understand this but we want to part of this team we're sorry we hope you you know you understand where we're coming from. Would've been my move instead of saying -- Lamar is up said he wants out how we're gonna sending to Dallas it just that was surprising both. I would say they -- package that I might -- mighty then you know sort of subtly. Q you'd that your parents say look you know that's something management wanted to do. I love watching. Regis and just played bad ankle up. You know try to bring it back into the hole but. -- the end that -- things that particular professional athlete in it even -- -- percent to. Like like Odom is hurt but might be whatever city. You have to get over that -- eventually that's just the way it. You Steve Kerr NBA on TNT who have Celtics Knicks on Christmas Day. What really take and who has the pieces in place to get going our. It -- your question I don't see it would be jurors see it I don't. I know -- there is rumors about a little bit that at first -- I'm not feeling Portland though. I still think. It's the Lakers. Were up Gasol and Bynum. Probably -- Chicago at the piece suits but for whatever reason they have not didn't. Mention that it looked like -- -- order much like he lets us play they're broke. -- Chicago's got a lot of lot of good out there but it just doesn't seem like there's a -- -- there's a lot of options out there. I before I go I -- I ask you this before but I got into a discussion the other night when somebody was saying about LeBron and what would have taken to get him to stay and I said. I thought the Suns were trading Amare Stoudemire to Cleveland. This is one -- it ended up with -- Antawn Jamison now you were the GM at the time might write that you're it was a possibility you were sending Amare Stoudemire to Cleveland. We talked about it we had a lot of discussions with our defense obviously you're the same spot Portland at LB we we knew it loose. But glory in the year so we talk -- -- both teams yet. Serious discussion quickly put. Ultimately that was not something that -- We still comfortable with the -- they weren't great situation but our -- Because of his impending free agency that we advocate for that what we're being offered it so you could -- -- out. As far as that everybody reported that we get. Obviously we talked a lot I would say it's. And it never came that close because just -- -- That one player you know JJ hickson was somebody we. -- OK we have the lead in the Amare Stoudemire talked about it team that was playing very well the time but we well. Toronto Western Conference final but they did it. Turned -- your decision not to do it picked up but couldn't just do it now -- that's that we need. -- -- Safe travels up to LA and we appreciate -- is always Steve happy holidays and no talk to you soon.
