If the purpose of a trailer is to make you want to watch the movie, then well done, Netflix. I’m in

Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming documentary Redeem Team. at the 2008 Olympics featuring Kobe Bryant in vintage style. Let me remind you that in 2008 the strongest opponent of the USA will be the deep Spanish team, led by the spade Pau Gasol, but also with Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon, Rudy Fernandez, Juan Carlos Navarro and others. It was a really dangerous team that the USA had to face first in the group game.

Kobe wanted to set the tone – and did so by running through his friend Gasol. (Warning: Video clip below contains NSFW language.)

“I play the first move of the game through Pau Gasol.” And we thought, “What?” He said, “First game in the game, I know they’re going to launch.” And he knew that Pow would be the last screen and said, “I’m running through it,” Dwyane Wade said.

Spoiler: The USA defeated Spain in the group stage. However, in the gold medal match, it was much more difficult for the Americans to beat the Spaniards: Kobe had to spend a big fourth quarter and – which is often forgotten – a master class from Chris Paul in game control to control the pace and flow.

I completely agree with the documentary, which will be released on October 7th on Netflix.

In Game 7 against the Mavericks last May, the Suns coach Monty Williams center bench Deandre Ayton, who ended up playing just 17 minutes in a crushing loss to Phoenix. When asked about it after the game, Williams said, “This is an internal matter.”

According to Ayton, Ayton and Williams have not spoken since.

Yes. Remember, this includes the summer when the Suns didn’t offer Ayton a maximum contract extension, so he went and got it from the Pacers, and the Suns instantly agreed. Ayton didn’t seem thrilled to be back in Phoenix for Media Day, and he was pretty casual with his coach.

That’s what every fan wants to hear – “it’s just my job.”

Journalists asked Williams about this, and he fought back by stating that he hadn’t talked to many players yet.

It’s only the first day of training camp, but there are a lot of red flags around the Suns: Owner Robert Sarver has been suspended and is selling the team, Jay Crowder not in camp, waiting for a trade, and right now there isn’t much communication between the team’s star center and her coach.

Maybe it’s all for nothing. Maybe the Suns will come out onto the court, Chris Paul looks younger Devin Booker looks like Devin Booker and it doesn’t matter. But what looked like a stable situation not too long ago is now causing a lot of fear ahead of the season, and that should worry Suns fans.

“If you make this trade, it has to be right, you have one chance to do it,” Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said on press day, lifting the veil a little on his thoughts about trading two picks in the first round. “Therefore, we are very thoughtful about decisions about when and how to use project capital in a way that improves our lineup.”

This is confirmed by constant reports from Los Angeles all summer long: the Lakers will only trade their only two first-round picks, which they have complete control of, for the rest of this decade (2027 and 2029) for a deal that will make them contenders.

This meant landing Kyrie Irving or Donovan Mitchell, Dave McMenamin of ESPN said on Collective podcast The Hoop.

“I was told that if the Lakers could get Kyrie Irving or the Lakers could get Donovan Mitchell, either of those players, the Lakers would be willing and able to move both of those players. [first-round] decides to do it.

The problem for the Lakers is that the market value of elite talent has surpassed two first-round picks. The Jazz received three unprotected first round picks (2025, 2027 and 2029) plus the right to trade two picks (2026 and 2028) in the Mitchell trade, not to mention three players: Lauri Markkanen (whom they will try to exchange for another choice) Colleen Sextonand Ochair Agbaji. The price for Kyrie Irving would have been at least as high if the Nets really wanted to trade him.

The Lakers Traded All Their Young Players And Most Of Their Picks To The Ground Anthony Davis as well as Russell Westbrookexcept for those who were releasedAlex Caruso). Before he was smart about making trades, as he was this offseason, Pelinka was making trades that kept him going in that corner.

Lakers could probably use both picks to acquire Buddy Heald as well as Miles Turner out of Indiana (sending Westbrook back), but that doesn’t make LA a contender (a playoff team, not a title threat) and goes against a plan to have about $30 million in the ceiling next summer to chase the big name.

The Lakers you see in training camp are the Lakers you get. At least for now.

SECOND, California. — Darwin Ham there was a new face at the front of the room, and from the day he walked in the door he had looked ahead and with a clean slate. The Lakers own tabula rasa.

“We’ve turned the page this year, you know, we’re looking at the windshield, not the rearview mirror,” Coach Ham said.

However, at the Lakers’ media day, everyone continued to look back at the team’s poor defense and dubious play. Russell Westbrook last season.

Can a new face at the front of the room, a new trick and luck with injuries erase the past and make…
