"If that's the way it's going to come back. Oh, why not the football game? You're not gonna be able to come back. The deal was when you're you're creating your own scenario. But the bottom line is you choose the killer job interview as somebody who needs to support your family or you choose being there to support your wife vote on some good perspective. The last one is Brett walnut creek. Go ahead. Brett, we're about to tell you a milestone, Steve Kerr's passing. Go ahead. Hey, guys. It's interesting. You know, Phil Mickelson oftentimes when he was about to potentially win the USO. He said he would leave you know, to be with his wife Amy for the birth of their child. That's well, but he got fifty million in the Bank you member. If you remember that the late Payne Stewart, basically embraced him on the green and said, you know what? Go be with your wife. Right. Wasn't at the moment. Wow. That is. Well, he said he's gonna he he said that. But the point is if you're a rookie, and you've got a chance to win the US open and set yourself up for life their first tournament that you could possibly ever you're not going home on Sunday. You're going home. You're going to go to the golf course maybe win that open yourself up for life. You know goes back to the the the great song from the swingers movie. You're nobody till somebody loves you sell find somebody to love. Yes. Brad. Let me let me just twist it around a little bit. If you think about this. Now, you're the leader of the US open as a rookie the final round you're getting ready to tee off. And you leave you become an international superstar because of the what you showed with no majors. Yes. But you're also if you're good enough to lead after three rounds the and epic story, you would be famous you'd be famous forever. You wouldn't be calling sports talk radio. If you had done that. And if TC Chen didn't double hit the chip in the US open. He might have had a career very good knowledge state over it. All right. So break your final word is this ever happened to you. No, I have the two kids. I was there for those. I didn't have the opportunity to choose between child. Our interviews. I know Bret and Bret walnut creek guy. Brett your kid plays golf. If he is the pro golfer, you tell him, you know, what be there for the birth of your child or go play golf, you really gonna tell your own kid to miss the birth of his of his of his own child. Your grandchild. Gosh wanted to have to turn it around like that. Exactly. I don't know you. So I can say this love conquers all you want a trophy up on the mantle. I've got one. Luckily. Right. You're good man bread. Hey, put my wife. I don't put my wife on the mantle. But at least I have a trophy that. Of course, you do why she how much how much younger. She was two years younger. Oh, I thought you meant trophy wife. You're going all the sanctity. Your plan. Your son's a professional golfer. High school Gulf. He's he's he's got tryouts on Monday. And I figure if he has try-outs are a job interview. I might happen to go for the job interview. You know, some I'd agree with you. If you don't have to pay college tuition, he's good enough to get a scholarship. I would I wouldn't say that yet. He's got some work to do. You. Don't put the day job stuff. Brambles? The great Brett from little league, right? You're listening to Gary and Larry on Cambio San Francisco ASEAN HD two San Mateo. These sports leader is Steve Kerr thing is Larry just broke something on me. That Kerr is one win away from being the fastest coach in any sport a brand. You can like you knew this. Yeah. To get two three was there for the pre show meeting. I was at the birth of. That's a good one miss a pre show meeting or go to the of your child. I think you go pre show meeting if you're going to do the show. Yeah. All right. Dan, argan just stuck his head. Instead Nolan would go to the meeting Steve Kerr, though, if he gets the win this weekend against the Celtics he'll be three hundred wins and three hundred and seventy seven games, the fastest coach to three hundred wins in NBA history. Baseball history NHL history NFL history. Maybe a Turkey. How many of those were waldon's? Yeah. Yeah. Look up. I mean, we're walking music thirty nine. I think more than that wasn't. It is thirty nine. God. You got a great memory. Wow. Wow. What can I say is good? But here's the question is Steve Kerr, one of the greatest coaches in the history of American sport or. The right place. The right. Mazey Johnny on the spot right place right time with a ton of talent. Or Steve Kerr is one of the greatest coaches in the history of this country. You know, you know, you never know unlike read are back. Let me see him do five years without Bill Russell. Yeah. You never know. Phil jackson. Let him do without Shaq. Kobe or Michael Jordan ballot? Check without Tom Brady. Exactly. See see? That's that's the thing. You would never know if you said, okay, right now, greatest coaches in any sport. If I greatest basketball coach of all time, you would say I would probably say read our back eleven way, he didn't get eleven, but he was there for eight or nine of them. I'd probably vote for Netanyahu. Probably I'd probably vote for Don Nelson. Really mean, he look at all the winds giving everyone a title of us look at nobody turned a bad team to decent better than Nelly. I think Nellie. I'll give you a credit that that's out of the thinking out of the box. Most of us just go from titles. Someone go fill mmediately. Phil, Michael Phil had Kobe and Shaq circumstances, you know, I mean. I just think Nellie would be my choice of greatest basketball. Icy greatest football coach, I think you've gotta give it to Bella check as much as I love Walsh. You got this this incredible run, Tony. And was it who was it. That's the corner that they had who played both ways in the Super Bowl. We played wide receiver and corner Brown. I believe some Bill Belichick to me is one of the Troy Brown. But, but you know, what's funny is that you want to use something to bolster your ballot. Check thing law said, and that's why I always kicked himself for retiring. He said prematurely he felt had ten years as a coach before people quit listening to you and look at ballot check. But again, you can come back and say, well, who's more important Bella checker Brady, I think watching Bella chick. Absolutely do an incredible job through that stat out last week. Yeah. Bill Belichick in the playoffs has faced six offenses that were ranked number one in the regular season and total yards in the playoffs. He's beaten five of the six he's five and one against those six number one offenses. So I think Bill Belichick is he proven beyond proven entity. Tom Brady, you're no Tom Brady. I love the Belichick coaching. He'd be hard to argue with that you go to nine Super Bowls in eighteen years. If I say baseball, who's the greatest manager in the history of baseball, man. It's a tough call. John mcgraw. Somebody said Connie Mack anymore uniform. We're going back that far beautiful suits though. You know, it's funny. I don't think there is a baseball guy. I mean, a manager that stands out viewed as number one. I know that. That. Book about Janis sane failed in Atlanta failed. But he lost his job in Atlanta. Didn't he was okay? With the story was based. Mike said Melissa may be in there. I what about the you. Gotta throw the Rusen there. There's no question. You know, what somebody's going to say, right? Royds? No come on managing Manny Antonio's. I'm just trying to be too. But from my point, I don't think there is a definitive number one. Because somebody would say Tony had the great talent for three years only got one world title out of it. Yeah. But he wanted to Chicago with the White Sox one St Louis cardinals. There's always those other two stops where he was also awesome. Yeah. You know? I mean, they win the World Series again, my logic. Bella check didn't win and Cleveland. But still now, you're right. Yeah. You didn't win anything. I don't think there's a definitive baseball manager when we have this. We always. Right. Mcgraw or Miller. Guest Connie Mack. Now, if you say Connie Mack, Mike one more widely here's didn't wear a fricking uniform. How far back is that? I'm baby Roger Craig? Okay. You'll hear all giant Gibson on. I six eighty guy throws with both arms Daniels are giving. No, there isn't why manage the giants fell asleep on the bench has really if there is not one for Earl Weaver. Yeah. He's a he's damned head. Yeah. So I mean, but I mean, if I if I said to mow to one hundred bay area sports fan Steve Kerr is one of the greatest coach a V greatest coach in the history of this country or fortunate right place, right time. I mean, even Steve would probably give you a little bit of right place right time. Oh, I thought he'd give you a lot of it. Probably. I mean, how about this have Durant leave and then you win the title next year, then I'll cry then. Exact right, go back. I will say this Gary. I mean, you got to you had a five alarm fire K D And Draymond green. Your superstar player who sensitive and your volcanic leader point. Man rebounded defense. Under. Basically having it out and not liking each other to be able to kinda smoothly. Navigate that to where they are at right now where they're putting up points, and they've introduced to Marcus and everybody gets along, and it's hunky Dory and full Steve full speed ahead to the title. I don't know to me. I think Kirsten incredible challenge coaching this the argument we can always say it's got two of the three greatest players in the world on his team. Yeah. I mean, it's five all stars. Also. Excellences Billy Martin Billy Martin did win and a lot of different places. They would fire. You do. You notice volatile. But he won in Texas. You wanna Minnesota stayed more than three years in one job? But he's genius was is there isn't one baseball like football who's the greatest receiver. Jerry Rice, who is the greatest running back for saying Bobby hawks votes on the taxonomy, Bobby straight division titles. But only one world title. Casey stangl. Yeah. But that's really going back. That's that's yeah. He was there for the mantle days, but it became a. Joke with the New York. Mets. Don't forget about Popovich. Yeah. I guess I just don't want to give him nine one six, gene. Hackman? Don't forget, Gene Hackman from Hoosier. All right. That's not bad now. But he ran a little hot, though, we had a temper of a basketball, you have popular titles Jackson and in our back. But you really can't do this baseball when five Larry stay away from basketball that your strong suit Nelly could never handle. Really good players. Yes. He was getting good at getting the best out of be players. But I don't know, man. I I hear what you're saying. And I know my out of the box. I'm not trying to get the answer. Real sad. I'm giving you my man, I think Nellie was a genius in a lot of ways. He's a genius personnel guy. I think."
