Customize your system get a free security camera all right mclovin the impossible trivia question. I think it's pretty hard. Okay i get it to the face. Yeah i don't. I don't think you'll get a but it's actually not even that good okay. There have been five players who've won the sixth man of the year multiple times. Can you name all five. Okay eddie johnson. See trickle fatty johnson. That's why i do. I get you guys visit. I email off eddie eddie. Only what it wants. You got me. Because i think they put him in the starting lineup. Jamal crawford one. Did they give it out to john havilcek. No they start started in eighty one. Okay or something like that. Did kevin mikhail win. Got to damore. Crawford kevin mchale lou williams. That's three. oh ricky pierce. That's four so i got to go one ago one. Did you have four of their five. Sixth man of the year and he wanted twice. Do you wanna give a hint. If i take the pie off that they will give you it. Do we want to take the playoff the to. Yeah that's okay okay. I don't. I don't want to get my new crock. Okay this guy you would never. I'll give you. You never thought he was a six man. You light you had a funny way of saying his last name on sportscenter left shrimp yeah. I didn't know he was a six man. I thought he started. It was with your first half of his career and then he became starting seattle and had no idea. I can't believe you for you. Made me nervous and it's pretty good. It's pretty good all right. We settled on the poll question. Yeah we put up a katie versus scotty pippin who's career you want. Take a guess who's winning. Who's career you want pretty close. I'll give you a head. I'm gonna i'm gonna say the audience will side with kevin durant. Yeah fifty five percent. Kevin durant closer than what i thought. I mean scott. He's a wonderful player. But if scotty doesn't play with. Michael jordan scottie is not one of the fifty greatest players of all time. I think he might be the best defender i ever saw now. Bill russell was spectacular with what he did. Scotty could guard everybody but bill. Russell was spectacular. But scotty would guard point guards. He could guard wings. he could guard big men. I mean he was. He was as versatile as anybody. He wasn't a shooter. He was his score. He did it. He allowed michael to freelance a little bit more. Because he was such a great defender. And i don't want to pile on scottie pippen. Just he's saying things first of all. If i if i read this quote about phil jackson. People are focusing on. Kevin durant and scotty talking about kevin durant kevin durant firing back. This is what. I don't understand and this to me is bigger story in this g. q. Interview scottie pippen was talking about when tony. Coup coach was told that he was going to get the shot. You know game on the line. Scotty then finds out he's not gonna take the last shot and he says the following. I don't think it's a mystery. You need to read between the fine lines. He didn't it re entered the game by the way went and sat down. It was my first year playing without michael jordan. Why wouldn't i be taking that last shot. I've been through all the ups and downs the battles with the pistons and now you insult me and tell me to take it out. Take it out of bounce. It was pretty low blow. I felt like it was an opportunity to give. Coup coach arise. It was a racial move to give a rise after all. I've been through with the organization. Now you're gonna tell me to take the ball out and throw it to toni kukoc. You're insulting me. That's how i felt. Okay there's one thing to say. That's how i felt. But you're calling phil jackson a racist. Where is the follow up. Question like i got to be credulous distinctly hold on you got other examples of phil jackson. Why racial did he just. Make a smart move to put in toni. Kukoc coach better outside shooter. I i would say. Let me give scotty the benefit of the doubt because the word racial just it's like out of nowhere but he starts out by saying you need to read between the fine lines. That's where i can't give him a hall pass here. And if i'm scotty i get my butt in front of somebody and say something like unless you mean it. Unless you're saying phil. Jackson is a racist here. I would i would say look i want to correct this or back it up but we called for scotty. If he came on i'd say all right. Are you calling phil jackson a racist. I don't care what his opinion is. A kevin durant. Don't kevin durant and lebron or not the same wonderful players.
