I said no his wife is going to hold a trophy not to i <hes> and it kind of hit them when i said that i thought about it that way but if market giving them a speech before the game. I don't know if they yeah they're probably getting me because i was talking to rick welts the other day from the warriors and bob myers in the words. They were all ready to not play the warriors. Whatever whatever the clippers would have wanted to do. The warriors were right there with them so it's not like they would have forfeited but nobody knows what would have happened like what would happen if they would've just logistics of that and i i've talked about this and did you have a contingency plan here if they didn't play and his answer is such that he knew what he was going gotta do he knew what he was going to ban them for life and he was working with doc and with kevin johnson who is president of the players association at the time assuring them. Just wait for for this investigation. I'm going to be fast with this and i'm gonna come down swiftly and strongly on it ramona they had they. They dropped ball. He was going to say worldwide. I only game going on. I got a poster of my my house with the guys from the sixty eight signed by them. That is an connick moment them not being. They're not coming out. What did they never came out on this one to sixty eight olympics there supportive crowd. They're not going to pick a better place for this and oakland and if they don't play does the rest of the league play do the playoffs shut down around because i almost think players in the league lebron was writing them down ice.
