The Nuggets head coach he's George Karl back on the program. Coach you -- said the heat last night. I cannot she hadn't came our -- game and -- you first -- His hand out to dinner enjoy intellectual bit luck go by -- and eighty degree weather turned out. Is it tough to watch playoff games when you're not in the playoffs. I you know there's certain game that I don't want to Marshall Akers play in a between impeach you kind of always wanted to observe how they do it may -- what we could've done better. -- actually probably continue coaching a little bit after. After the series that. I don't go out of my way to -- but I don't. Very I don't want to watch you know Cabrera on the -- marching around in the bar this football Romo actually you know some like to have them. I'm not I'm not the anti -- but I'm not. And excited to go to -- may -- the finals I try to get a little more excited good. Watch that maybe the conference I think I really -- what -- problem was -- Central America will be a great series. Before I get to on the Lakers in Oklahoma City just one I've touched on this today spent probably too much time on it but -- speed at the end of games. But you know who who is the guy who has the ball should have the ball he got two guys who can have the ball bit. It just seems like -- that they'd just doesn't feel as confident as each should. My asking too much of from LeBron and wade here at the end of games. All around in I'm I'm kind of come on this side and those guys really think about winning games European figures with potential trade -- draw charges and block shot -- loose balls and offensive rebounder. But I rigors not ten different ways to win a big post game as -- should be an artist or senator -- -- -- ago where they couldn't break 101 and number of somebody. But I handers Belichick and Miami which I would -- actually -- -- from -- and government from abroad that. Kind of have more more. More savvy. He makes good plays at the end of the game he's certainly picture that's been your game right now and of course -- and so it -- helped. But how he did this in Cleveland in and I I thought that in Cleveland he did it because he had to almost seven necessity. It is there. As a coach you know coaching against LeBron is their field though that he's dom. Not selfish enough at the end of game set is that a fair assessment. I think it's definitely if I had to do it sky report I would trade he would rather make good basketball player that forced an -- to -- the -- And I think you know there there's there's a lot of lot of -- too bad but any bigtime game is what it's all on the line. You want the best player the most solid player of the game about what to make a play to win the game in. But I pack can see how the pendulum of dissent is kind of wore them against LeBron. But I also stand up mr. looper helped you know I would love to know LeBron -- -- -- was the fourth quarter could -- -- I think he's unbelievable. Am I I just I hate and I wanna -- championship on his red cement. I I I do and I look past all the B I'm taking my talents to South Beach -- just -- great players. It -- it like a quarterback or it's a baseball player you just wanna see those guys who perform at a different level. Be able to get that championship and that's why do root for him and maybe it's I'm rooting for him in an odd way but I I just wanna see the ball on his hands I'm gonna seek greater. For us throughout this and how many years it took technology division. Manny needed done -- Elsinore to do so. Having him literary Karl Malone never got on John Stockton never got on their Lotta guys Charles Barkley -- -- -- a lot of guys on that list. And it's you know what I always am amazed -- how many people think they are these guys it 'cause there's so many guys doing champs should. The list of people mentioned stroke as a 15% of players you know yeah. They're good but you know coaching against Jordan. Jordan was gonna have the ball at some point in the final play. LJ you had to make a decision on how the government -- do and I think you have to make a decision America and abroad and -- and point away I think there that they you have a defensive game plan going into those guys. And I still think he gets good shots I think he he gets good opportunities and just put in the last couple years he's. He's not made that big so you're not unless you're in the Eastern Conference finals -- substantially pretty attractive. But there if Arnold wasn't. George Karl Nuggets head coach joining us Dan Patrick show. How good the Lakers. Oh Lakers never counted thank you to -- within that -- -- if they -- a part of the -- game low scoring game with three defensive mind in the central. They protect the basket very well. But any time speed equipment it's in the game I think it's an advantage that you like -- or maybe even Oklahoma City I think you know -- -- was serious speed quickness but. They also -- 23 an unbelievable scores have been scored numbers that. Against good defense bad defense zone defense -- team defense what -- throw at them they have the ability to score points. What would you do if you're Mike Brown put the philosophy going into game two tonight against a Clemson. I got I think I guess what about one and a half but the big tree but I mean I think you know I trust. In our tests upon. On Westbrook a little bit more giving him make it a big time -- every possession has evolved. You know maybe try to get that double teamed up. -- better -- of the games try to principals in that game. And then try to keep walk to pinch cynical GPA triple she'd been inside. Especially Republicans who ineffective -- -- I think that they're big guys are very good how to end of the possession game is very much on this side. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And how do you get one of those are playing your concern and I prepare. Halfway decent game at least I think is going to be a part of it -- -- Oh. Yeah. And I said before I am -- Has about in February and they even Marcia tried Antonio local history would retreat being that we were what were. Gap I don't know how big the gap was but I think we are not the gap is pretty big. Between everybody else I think. Took third place team in the Western Conference wasn't that much better than the -- placing in the Western Conference. And there's going to be three of fourteen and magistrates to Clippers or mantras about. Good match you're gonna make a big step forward. Electric -- throughout this year here and the Portland. Or not Portland but she mixes it. -- to be even couldn't make the play -- Were very very good basketball teams in this season than any fatigue become independent what part what time of the year what part this year what's the difficulty of the schedule said that.
