"Our generation would money. Was you know so what ends up happening as a kid you'll first thing to do is make everybody happy. You know so. It's not the it's not the it's not the player it's the it's the environment to like you. You WanNa make your mother happy you like. What type of son do you look like telling your mom that she has to downgrade? Your career is done even though that's what you're supposed to do you're supposed to downgrade drop. Those bills and had to tutors live normal. Well how how do you tell your mom me you got to downgrade? We gotTA sell this House. Get your a smaller house. Need to so. You're sitting there with the pain letting letting the money just being eight up before it's too late you know. So that's that's what ends up happening. It's not into child. Support don't Charleston gets adjusted to it. Just the just the lifestyle of just watching you. You bought that so how many guys are at ten. How many guys? What's the percentage of ten? I know what they say. You can ask seven exactly executives. Say Seven as tough. The players who are saving is probably older players. Who probably got who's married and he'll be too young GONNA be. It ain't GonNa be the young person with all the money that now. He's he's being young with all the money. And that is that person who's making two three five seven million dollars and he's penny pigeon because he has a wife and family and he's older so he understands the value of money. You gotta remember by time a kid by time a player realizes what money is unless in enlists. He has a group around him. That understands it right. You know. Twenty eight twenty nine twenty eight twenty nine when he starts trying to trying to figure it out because you know you signed one hundred coming right now you have anyone. Let me give you a hundred million dollars in my mind. I have. What one hundred million dollars? But it's really not it's not sixty right. You know what I mean is not the you know you got sixty million one hundred thirty. Five million dollars is gone out the window. But you don't know that yet so how you spend your spending on hunting you know your mind is spin on one hundred one hundred million dollars so like my advice to to the young going in your first contract by get a condo apartment. I mean spend money. That's already in your account so if the house is two million if you don't have to million dollars saved up don't let them let them money kick in let it let it. Let let it actually building your account before you start purchasing stuff you know. Don't don't go out because at the end today you want. You don't WanNa be playing on borrowed money because if you can't see the money then borrowed you know. We had our meetings with with this on Sunday with a bunch of financial guys and You know my goal for him and I told him base might look so. We're going to hopefully get enough endorsement income. We're GONNA live off that and you're saving every penny the paycheck getting touch it. We're GONNA budget you off that right. So that's the goal to start teaching these young guys budget budget right now. Obviously allow you. Do they lose their mind? It doesn't matter what you tell them in a moment and get their depending on who they're that's and that's the problem would financial allies to is like go their a financial a financial adviser supposed to give you advice gallery. He is the professional. You're not you're just a kid with a lot of money that wants to do kid stuff you know. I want to build a shark tank under under my bed so when I go there and look for my shoes I can see this. You.

"Think think think think of this think of this disuse moby for instance and he like is going to be a top five draft traffic next year. Go to USC this year When I got him in the sixth grade ranked nobody knew about him cared about him. But just if you take that sixth grade than we get but I knew he was going to be good so when he got to high school he went to School Rancho Christian which is not like two hundred kids into Macula. Nobody heard so his dad called me says hey look toby goes what do you think? Do you think that that Ranch Christians going to hurt him like being there like? Do you think that we need to go to modern day? Do we need to go somewhere? That be seen more listened with him and Isaiah which was the brother. They're both of them. There's good as we think they're going to be. We're going to be fine there. We're going to build that thing we're going to build a high school 'cause I sponsored icicle to you and then we're going to build the tomb around it so when I call the beat as I say. Look we're GONNA SPONSOR RENT CHRISTIAN? They're like what who's that. I said. Listen distrust me. We're sponsor rentals kick the money and we're sponsor integration okay. But they weren't happy about it right. It's the two years later I was like. Hey Man Will you hurry up and give me these mother canoe uniforms? We got four nasty television nationally. Televised Games give me the new uniforms so it went from. Why are you sponsoring them to them? Trying to be like what kind of for what our uniforms would them form where we get said? Okay now sponsor now you got the high school team with two hundred kids in the school with the most? Espn games in the country. You got in the car to drive here in quite a ways right here in Riverside California. I think what you have to do now is. You'RE GONNA have to be in that car. You're going to have to go evaluate talent and started scouting recruiting. He wasn't ready for that now. I mean it's just one of those things that you know you hear about a you. You see there and I go to the Games every Saturday every weekend. See the kids. Okay came when somewhere you see. But I haven't seen this world because my kid is not that my kid is not in that age group where you see top talents. See My team. But I've never seen them play because that eight has age group you know with your kids is too young so we don't get to see the new high school. Let me give you this. This is something that I think you can really relate to so Take Brownies teams. Try Greatness there are a Rockstar team last year. Rockstar Scottclark briny. All these really good young kids. They brought up along the country right. They play kind of eight ninth grade like fifteen and fourteen but the the thing now is is their remember. When you get to high school you can plan a bordering state so you can't use them kids from all the country now now you in our world. I was a little different so you can't bring kids while the country plan my high school team. It can be bordering state so now you bring in the White Kid from Florida. Gave Cups where he lived at. Well he's kids playing your team. Will that cuts half your team. Because they can't get a live in California and Oregon. Arizona are Vegas so you can't take them kids no more so now you've got to California kids now. They had a really good team but the one thing that sometimes the NBA guys don't realize like people were like. Hey what do you think about? Strive as a good team but like when they start getting seventeen. It's GonNa be tough warm. They AIN'T GONNA BE EASY. You know why because number one team hasn't aired if that's the brand junior. That's the narrative right. I mean and that's going to be other people all kids want. They're all parents want their kids to shy the good ones whether they're going to pay you back you whoever else so. It's not hard to make a pair understand that you know. Scottclark left that team. You interviewed him but he that team is all. We left the team. You would think that that would be impossible for like a kid like that good. Why would you ever leave the Bosnian? Well I would say this and put this unusual is do you want to be the main man one man attraction on your team or do you want to be on a team of all stars? I I'm on offense of both of them because you know I came from just being a man you know mean so my thought process was always kill mode. I didn't really have to share a light with anybody even when I went to other teams when I went to. Tpi know they subbed me in one flat offense but I know my office is going to be one four flat like it or not. You know I'm going to score fifty at the hat and that's what I'm GonNa do you know? So if you have the mindset to shine you're gonNA shine no matter what is around and I see kids now that it's different when I grew up. You only play with your friends for the most part people you go around with you know now these kids is they're teaming up there. They're playing a tournament and see you'll like him. We let's team together. You know so it seems like there's more collapse than they were when I play it work like now kids right now right now so I will tell you this. There are collapsed as a lot of collapse. Now we have been having been based on that like. We've been fortunate enough like that team that we had that had Isaiah mobely. Who was McDonald's all American when you go who's going to be a top pick in the NBA draft etem always going to be a top pick in the NBA draft? Johnny Zang's went from Kentucky. Ucla Jerry Lucas was California. All Timeline score jalen Clark was going. Ucla Isaiah Hill who at Tulsa so? We had seven high major players in his team right. Who really all got what they wanted but the reason they got to do that is because every single one of those kids start off in our uniform in eighth grade never played for another Aau team so which is unheard of in today's game. Most kids are jumping around playing with each other. Those kids that we had. There's one of them. Jalen he's GonNa Ucla but they all stuck around and play together. The hallway through at the end of the day is like most most of the teams are like Gilbert. Says they're doing collapse. We're fortunate enough to to recognize talent. Younger make them. Friends make their parents friends and make them want to do the Johnny together and then from there. You know that the horses going to pick you know we're GONNA have fortified. Nba team four five NBA players on the.

"But yeah it's so it's kind of a gray or you're not supposed to build to recruit a kid off your team to your high school but now there's that thirty day sit out rule which kind of exonerates that whole can transfer and sit out okay. But you know if you're going to like one of the bigger schools Sierra Modern Day like those guys you know they control I F eligible. Not a better way to do it though. Like if you're if you're if you have a an amazing talent on your team when you want to coach him in a summer also to make sure someone's not messing up what's depends so like the good thing about our program is allowed to we have in our program a lot of high school coaches and whether they're on my answer not they're usually a part of what we're doing so they can see how we're trying to build this athlete like all these kids we have. They all have specific pass right. Everyone's during these different everyone's doing it could be a little different dependent on you might have any journey. You may have on Echo Journey. Who's going to be a top ten pick in the draft? This year. Who's joining was different than the mobis. During is going to be always get that clear cut path. Everyone knows he's going to be top five. You know so to me. There's different ways of of guiding those earnings and the difference in US I feel in allow the other teams is that we really learn to grow with our kids and figure out individually what can maximize their brand now every kid's a brand and with social media and the way to promote kids and if you're an old school guy you don't know how to do that you know how to work your social media. You don't twitter. You don't do instagram. It's GonNa be a problem in today's Day and age different day and age different date day and age. Different Day kid kid as well so kids are different now. All right the next thing I want to get into. Is We kind of talked about the history and how you establish things but really walk us through how the system works today? For the modern Athle- modern basketball player. Through A so. Like you're GONNA to play your high school season right and Save say it was my son. Let's talk about it with my kid. My kid the perfect environment. You're going to play high school season so you want to be in high school. That's at least competitive. I think a little bit competitive so that you can get that six months of every day in practice. You're not wasting time right. You'RE NOT WASTING TIME EVERY DAY. All Day practice. So then you're going to transfer a you. Now it's tough because they your parent and like if you're us you can't just complete for us like we hand. Pick the kids. We picked the families like you. Can't we have one hundred calls a day trying to get the team but I mean like unless all my my whole team is looking at these kids all year long? And we're watching the families or watching. The kids. Were seeing now locker room where Jim his team. So we're not just bringing on like I might have a kid. I'm not gonNA name any names. We talked about earlier. They wanted to complain for us. They topped the country. He's dad called me to- kemalist. Let's get together. We went to comply with the Mobley's and I was like can't do it. Deed is calling me like you ain't GonNa take him. I said now we're good man. I said I think we said the guys have been in my program. Johnny Jews Zang and Mobley's and all the kids we have earned the right to get shots. I'm not going to bring him in the take away from their sides and I think without him will be pretty good and we are the undisputed national champs that year students take another to player in the country. His Dad call trying to get on. So you know going back a little bit but so when you're trying to pick a new team depending on what town you are. It depends on what kind of we're talking about. Are we talking about high kid? I'm major kid a low major kid because obviously there's different opportunities for all three of those kids right because I'm going to take some major kids to that are gonNA have opportunities but it's going to be super. It's going to be tough for you to get my team. Is that type of kid right. If you're not even one of those kids now you become a crapshoot. I mean just going to have to play for a team. That's not one of the major circuits because right now we have three major circuits and it's beneficial for you to plan those three major circuits because number one. The population of all the talent is on one of those circuits nationally. The shoe companies already picking these guys to find the best talent in all these different cities. Everyone is and their pressuring. These guys get the best players so you don't find many really good players that are outside of those three circuits. There's a couple but not many so then if you're not one of those three circuits under armour Adidas Nike and you're an independent is a four circuit like an independent circuit. It's a lot harder than being in those three circuits. 'cause you could imagine if we have twenty eight teams. Nike and under. I'm thirty six teams. We're going to play our vents. Certain places in Avocado coaches coming to watch one of those three shoe companies. If you have three coaches on the road would you have three coaches on the road? They're going to send one to determine going one an tournament.

"Gather around the Campfire Boys and girls let me tell us. Some greatness exudes itself in a lot of ways in the legend of Michael Jordan of course on the floor. He's the black cat EH. He's Jesus in gym shoes. He's air he's been played basketball with his tongue out. Just think about it played basketball with his tongue out. But you know what made them actual icon. He didn't go to bed at nine and ten o'clock at night. We all knew it okay. That's just one story. What about the ties that he will be in the casino? Okay what a Stogie win lose draw. It's still no. He had a game the next day or the same day and come out and do work and I'm not the person to make any allegations. What the Utah Flu Gang? There's there's been an urban legend that he was born in sick during that game. That's all I'm gonNA say about that. Yeah you're not saying he wasn't sick but maybe there are some other elements that he was dealing with this well. Well it's a different era than it is now. I think the players are so much more health conscious but was this kind of behavior not commonplace but did it occur from time to the time in the ninety s and the early two thousand. I always give the modern day athlete. Credit for something we worked out. That means you pick and choose when you do it breath that means. Sometimes you have an all season. These guys train is twenty. Four seven three sixty five and not just in the gym is nutrition and it's a lot of other things that come with trying to make sure that they've maximized their ability to be successful on the floor but don't think that that took away from the greatness of Michael Jordan there were certain players that wouldn't be effective of the bed before midnight. I remember times in my career. I was trying to figure it out like With the band and I was awful I went to three. Yeah I like that so I wasn't a great players. Ask all trying to figure.

"To one undefeated team in a forty niners who officially lost sanders due to injury they're wide. Receiver hopefully is not not something long term and on the other side Seattle. Who Lost Lock it? During the game due to injury who Pete Carroll feels like that's going to be a more serious injury but it was all about the dynamic play of Russell Wilson who now leads the league. David Jacoby it total yards and total touchdowns and whoopee Carol continues. He used to do that. Sneaky and smart while we dazzle at Russell and his gray high gets down and uses baseball background the slot not take big hits. They still find a way to turn around and get all the Carson Twenty five times to slow down the pass rush when they can to give Russell a chance to even breathe so I was really impressed with metcalf who continues to improve as a rookie. Receiver there so there's a lot of great things happening happening offensively for Seattle but we got to see what happens with lock it because that'll be a big loss. Obviously Josh Gordon had a couple of big third down conversions that he just joined the team. And this is. Why would say about the quarterbacks per second because if you could celebrate Russell Wilson's play as you just did? But he's the same. Russell Wilson threw an interception in overtime on on the two yard line. Right and that's a beautiful play by Greenlaw. But then there's also Jimmy G. You could say. Oh well Jimmy. Jeep drove down the field. Put them in a position to win the game with that field goal. It's the same drive in which he basically threw it off the shoulder pads of two different linebackers for the seahawks. So I walked away from this game with the same impression. Hadn't beginning like both those quarterbacks did so much that put their team position to win. But that both those quarterbacks also kind of gave away porn chances so I noted at the top talk show and you did it twice during your great analysis. We're not gonNA put Jimmy play in Russell Wilson's play in the same category uh-huh because JV also does a lot of unforced. Did a lot of unforced turnovers then cost his team. Russell Wilson I. I agree with you made that mistake through that. Pick on a two yard lines. It almost reminded me of the Super Bowl. I was thinking. Wow I remember that play. When he threw that a it cost them the game but again special teams as we started the show eluding always play that factor in determining a lot the times how we analyze these games and Garoppolo didn't have kiddle his security blanket arguably the best tight end in football? But you gotta give Seattle credit because they stood up against the run. And that's what San Francisco does as on a consistent basis almost as well as anyone because it is the NFL. We're going to celebrate the quarterbacks and talk about the quarterback play but there was no player on the field more dominant than Davy. Clowney or the SEAHAWKS. I mean he was everywhere forcing fumbles picking a fumbles making tackles jennings sacks jumping up in the air and changing plays tipping balls. He did everything he was he. It looked amazing last night. What do you think about today on cloudy for some reason it made me think about? FCA Minister Society. I was like he's a straight up minutes.

"I guess she was his own so i don't know what kind of a basketball guys step that was but his step-dad obviously cared about him enough to get him to the right places and <hes> and and i'm just you know jimmy jimmy car when he would yell at me from the stand yeah he <hes> yeah he won game you time out time to ah yeah but the good thing about him was. Maybe i don't know how much of it he really knew what he was saying or not. Saying or just good a good guy fun guy cared he cared about my kids so much that he would yell at alec umbrella in the same way yelled ryan and that might sound weird like this this wimpy generation rim where you're not allowed to raise your voice and stuff but that's not how it should be this. We were just wrong and he would actually like he'd get on bravo and bravo's ducas brad would play a great burst burst and grab presents with young review driving the team doing great then he would do a minute of nonsense enduring that minute jimmy would yell so. I wouldn't after yell and he wasn't even he was there to watch. That's how dedicated jim watching the other grades because we we had three teams many years in two teams every year and wet four teams one year so we'd have four mass lucians teams in i'd coach four strings is great but ryan was just one of the most fundamentally sound players there's ever because he was playing a big position when he was never really that big. He then worked on his shot to where his outside shot was really strong. He was arguably the second best the third best player on that state runner up twenty nine one team from saint seat in the cell that one the whipple and he was pushed off as almost like the fourth guy because because there were three seniors but he was really key to that team then he the next year he was the main guy really the only star took them to the whip. You'll finals again so ryan was just a spectacularly fundamentally. Emily sound player calming influence. <hes> i used to laugh because he would go over and talk. Try to talk to alec. Alec was in one of his fits of rage. He would try to calm joey down. When joey was worked up so he would he would he would listen meant every single time out he be looking at me now. He might have not been listening but he sure faking it if he wasn't but i think he was and he was listening sending and he would then go run the plays to perfection just a coach's dream. He was i mean he. He played the big man position when under is number one and number two when undersized guys didn't play the big bang position anymore. They learn how to be guards. Yes you know so. He just was <hes> <hes> i think it's just a special kid of being able to to accomplish what he did basically starting on the inside and working his way to the outside yes as an undersized undersized. I don't know what he ended up playing his college. I it was but i know when he graduated high school was. He's six foot. Yes well. Maybe he played four years of college. Ah at a pretty good college program so here's how we find ryan. Were talking about how we're gonna get a big man and this guy that it's a client says mr telling me for a year. He's got this big man that we want his big men that we want and i say to him art. I'm finally going to go see him when he's close to beth when he's playing at some catholics in the pro league this school down by the curry hollow road or something and i walk in this ratty ass jim and eric. I say eric the five minutes where we gotta go see this kid. Maybe bob karski knows what he's talking about. Baba's thank you. Bob was the guy who told me the so we walk in and i go baabda. Karski knows what he's talking about ryan up on the floor and does a couple moves and i go. I gotta aww big man so then. I got in the parking lot. Remember jimmy would always remember. Jimmy would always have that like newspaper crumpled up no matter what time yeah he liked to gamble go outside and i come up to ryan offset in jimmy starts like interrogated. Wha what's your program like. What would you run. What's your deep but it's fluffy and i said we're in a parking lot man. I'm tom asking your kid wants to play. You're not gonna interview me here. So that's how we land ryan then brian gorny the guy mentioned sent the email calls me and we have ed we'd lead holder strength fitness and speed to thank for this or late in the row ninth grade years who got maybe two three seasons left and were missing one piece. It's just like that being a general manager of a really good team. I'm looking for that one missing piece. I want that guy that can cover everybody that guy that can score the guy. That's got a big body and i'm not thinking i'm going to find it. It's lights colorado's trying to find people in ed. We'd holder text me says i think you should meet brian gorny so brand gorny calls master of the voicemail go and he says hey. I'd like to talk to you about my some refresher with. Are you experienced for the last two years. We've seen you guys. We just love the way you guys look. The way you play. You played a team so we going meet at the brewers and south park shops and i just think this is gonna be a fit and i practice he comes to. He's about six three can leap deep. He's fast can cover the three shoot the three like you wouldn't believe he ends up playing in the n._c._a._a. Tournament for division three. He got brought us. When i ran the three to because of our size limitations i could put him at the top and that three two and slide him back and top back top and he could create havoc for someone shooting a three but slip in and stop if if they tried to go in the middle against a three two and that perimeter was now joey him alec trav- those guys are all anthony all hitting hitting shots from the outside <hes> and yet dan bright inside yet samuel patty so that's how we got justin gorny. The justin gorny was <hes> he hey when he was just describe how that first year when he came because he didn't say a whole lot he didn't say a word didn't say a word and and somehow like that. That's the other part about that. Group the group prior to him. You know yeah piece to the puzzle and it's it's like he was with us the entire time so i mean the kids were just great that way you know if there was ever any dissension amongst them. It never lasted past the huddle you ever over. I know i mean. I never saw it really during games. I never saw it after games. I never saw it in between games. You know the just and that's that's a testament to of their characters as individuals as well as basketball players yep yep. We had guys leave. Sambu patty left. He asked to come back and we gladly took him with open arms. He was a good player. Damn brave was like around my house. All the time really close with alec was a big man but i have to talk about a guy who i saw and knew was going to be spectacular occular and knew he was going to be coached some day and knew he was going to be a coach on the floor. When we were in that fourth grade here and that's anthony bowmore anthony bowmore was all all arms and legs in fourth fifth sixth even into sabbath and he also because of that wasn't formed as quickly at an early age as some of the other guys that were smaller and better dribblers and so forth so he always was looking for a spot because you didn't know where to put me couldn't put him right at the point guard. He wasn't quite there yet. He he wasn't shooting good enough to be quite at the two he was tall enough and lanky for the three but he wasn't physically enough. I stuck with him and parents were so petty and they would bitch about about everybody. Everybody pitched about every kid but in those four fifth and sixth grade years i would get some flack but i would say to eric and you and dean. I would say that kid understands. It's the game. He has the basketball q. We're going to stick with him and he's gonna work at it. He's going to blossom at some point and dan if it didn't happen his junior year of high school nut ham for us <music> on the a level eighth grade ninth tenth grade but his junior year of high school his junior and senior year he started every game played like every minute assist to turnover ratio spectacular tackler in high school and college. He just didn't turn the ball over. You knew you were going to be at a count on him to run the offense. You knew you were going to be able to have him. Call the other guys down he could look over at me and in in a second we would know what to say to. Each play was gonna run. He was like an extension of me as the coach nuts anthony bowmore yeah absolutely i you know i think anthony i i think of a quintessential point guard point guards of the seventies eighties even nineties with pass first mentality. You know point guards now. How you know a lot of the the philosophy going toward well. I want my best player to be my point guard so he can handle the ball more than anybody else. He gets more more opportunities to score because he has the ball and his hands i. I don't know if i buy into that. I'm i'm all for the guy like the anthony bowmore. Who's going to run the offense. It's is going to know where everybody's gonna be. He's gonna time and situation. He's he's not gonna make many mistakes and i could put him on a one or two or three because he had the longest arms arms around he can cover so many different people and he wanted to play defense. He and alec were the two that wanted to play defense on that team right gorny. He play play defense sometimes he when he played he was spectacular but alec anthony liked defense right and that's that was we needed. Anthony was in a perfect situation with my solutions because because he was a guy was not a big time score okay but you we allowed him to develop is a true point guard okay and and we didn't need him to have to score the ball you know and it helped him once he he finally got the minutes..

"In youth sports early matter so i picked pick the sixth highest tallest kids. I read on a couple of football players. I know we go through. I get the first picture. The first pick ever make here is for a guy named steve ibon who was taller than everybody had red hair immediately eric nickname some big country from big from oklahoma state so we get the big country it circles back and comes the whole way through and handing over eric nice. It's getting close. Who do you wanna goes eric. He's very noncommittal. Eric goes your call coach so i go. I'm taking the kid with the unique name and he goes who and i said joey mascaro and he goes mascara. I see yeah mascara. I said i'm taking the cave it cool name saigo joey mascaro now. There should be an e._s._p._n. Show thirty for thirty on how joey was the eighteenth pick and the fourth grade but the park rec draft. You're talking about the best is player in this century from that school district and he was the eighteenth pick in that draft but it changed all of our lives because once we got joey willon undefeated in that wreck and then we went as a wreck team into metro travel basketball tournament where everyone had been practicing together all year running zones we had only ever run a man and we actually did really well in a metro tournaments and then we kept that team together for both metro and took the core group of that team for a._a._u. And we wanted an exorbitant amount of games but joey mascaro immediately gave us credibility so then once you have joe and you pick up travis you unknowing they have to at that time and that time before tribes injuries two of the top up twenty players that great in the whipple. He's he's still not the top five so at that time without anyone knowing it. I kept on eric. I'm lake. We're really good but no one knows it because nobody knows these guys names and we're the only team that's coming from the suburbs of just looks a certain way and and so then we just put the second person that the actual the number one reason why all this happened is alec my oldest and alec <hes> did a lot of stuff off good and bad and he's a rambunctious young guys learned a lot but the fact that matters none of us meet each other if not for alec and that team never gets together if not for me drafting joey and joey being who he is and trav- gave us instant credibility so they're the three pillars of the team. They're the big three you have to address alec. Though you have to talk talk about that well i mean alec you know to to talk about alec in the purest basketball. Sense is emmy very fittingly family. We we call him. Rodman you know and and you know dennis rodman he was a he was a fire starter. He was a kick starter. He just i and this was before he went off the edge this before he became a free he was just a basketball players and he cared about nothing other than doing what he can do and that's the way i look plate you know and and high intensity you know i mean and i wouldn't say that alec necessarily. I guess maybe a little bit but exactly like dennis rodman. I mean he he was. He was a key cog of the mass solutions group. His guy wasn't afraid to mix it up. He hustled he. He was the first guy on the floor. You know he was the first guy if if things you know got a little tense offense between the teams he was the first guy in the last guy out. I mean he served. If somebody messed with somebody you know and the thing is too you know rodman new his game and what he was good at and and that was the beauty of outlook alec knew what he was good at. He never tried to do more than what he thought he was capable of and that's why he he gave the team. Spark me he was the one he was the one. If not maybe the only guy they played with a bit of an edge. You know the the two thousand fifteen group. I think they were so good that you know. Some kids need that little edge to get on. I'm going need something to happen to fire them up. Most of the team was just so good and they were also so much in control their emotions either because they were laid backer occurred. It was just that was just their personality. Alec was the one guy that we had that you know in an instant might take offence to some then or might feel like we you need a little kick start or you know he could get us going. He could get things done the one thing about alec that <hes> you know this might become a surprise to you tom but he frustrated me a lot <hes> so so but the thing that i always feel really proud as a dad about alec and i can't. Let's say this for a number of the guys on that team. There's the four or five that were awesome but there's other guys in that team to play differently depending on who we were playing what the people replayed looked like and what their size was like and the magnitude of the game that never changed frolic if he was gonna do a dumb play didn't win by fifty and he didn't we'll replay the best team in the country and he did it when we were losing by thirty. If he's going to a smart play he did it against the team were blown out and if he's gonna make a big basket he did it in against the shitter and he did the same so he made mistakes mistakes the same way and good things the same way there's other guys who were world leaders right playing the hitters. Good games add looked on the bench who to call in and they were tying shoe or something well. That's that's a word. It's not used as much anymore. You know the coaches like you and i value. It's consistency yes. He was consistent. No matter who we played there's just an and as a coach you know when when you're game planning when you're making changes during the game you know you know you have that guy. Who's consistent so that's it's going to be on the floor for it. You know that you don't have to worry about matchups because he's gonna play the same you it doesn't matter if you put travis snider in front alex he would defend him the same way as if you put brevin masturbation front alec he would defend him the same way he really has. No percents might be a bit of a gift. He doesn't care who you are and in sports. That's yeah that's fantastic. He would manage to get the other guys best player to twice got the other two punch him two different games. They got a bunch of newton one time. They threw him both adams nagas as but that was one of the best players row now for years and i leaned over to the damn. That's a great trade our guys are there any although you and i are thinking that way alec wasn't wasn't no. He really didn't care who it was. You know that's the thing he didn't realize i mean i don't know if we even told him afterward. How valuable that was what he did for the team because alex played the same way yes so so that's <hes> that's the big three we it all started because of alec not have it would have happened if not for joey and being the eighteenth pick in the draft at the be certainly the brady hito barely made the fbi team in the metro late eighteenth pick he'd be like the tom brady six or seven quarterback selected before and then of course travis snider so let's go through a couple of quick things on the <hes> the memories <hes> we both i asked ask you this question and i asked this because breath. My middle son is phenomenal at remembering things and he's also extremely objective in a very self aware but i said to him joey's best game of life and i said to you and him and all three of us say the same and it's down at west virginia when the fire alarms went off they and he had we were down on nineteen points. The fire alarms go off and i said guys they're actually not better than us. Let's just keep chipping away at we get a little run. We'll win. We ended up winning by nineteen and joey. We had like thirty nine member. He was just a frigging monster it well the thing is we had a couple of guys capable performances like that and in a game yeah and again. That's that's why the team was so special. You didn't need one guy. Joey didn't have to be great for the team to win. Travis didn't have to be great norquist. I didn't have to be great for the games well in fairness to joey the the greatest game that he played was against the top team or one of the top three teams in the country in highschool against against an undefeated newcastle team and he had thirty points carried bethel and they only lost potanin that team barely enforcing was at that game but you told me about that he was he was spectacular. Joey louis ended up playing for pit so he was a division one walk on an a._c._c. team which that's just amazing for a guy. That's five eight five nine. I'll give you five ten joe because you might be listening but to walk on and play for a team in the a._c._c. at that height and weight and coming from the whip you'll <hes> <hes> he had a spectacular career he was as you said really laid back on the court he would get excited when there was a run offensively but he was very calm and and so it was it was tough because i would always taught to hate the best perhaps the lead a little bit and he wasn't as comfortable with that but it still lead in different ways mass. That's joey and we're talking about the traveling alec issue. Let's talk about <hes> ryan orcas. What a man. I'm the just just quite a kid. I mean you know when you when i got to know a little bit about rhine and it just his situation growing up and <hes> you know that his essentially was was raised by his stepfather and mother and <hes> knowing that he just probably wasn't given the opportunities when he was younger that you you and i were or even our kids were given and for him to just accomplish what he did. I mean you know and again. I didn't knows house is stepped out all that well but aside from being at all the games but he was there for him. I guess she was his own so i don't know what kind of a basketball guys step that was but his step-dad obviously cared about him enough to get him to the right places.

"Little more mobile like joining forces socially conscious. Why does the NBA always get ripped when millennials want to join forces? Correct me if I'm wrong, but AAU basketball aren't the same seven to eight national teams good every year. Excuse me, didn't the best three high schoolers in the country. All go to Duke and join forces. They could have gone to Virginia one two guns aggo undesired year. Now they wanted to win join forces. We don't like when you start paying players, and they have a little control over it. But AAU basketball is a compilation of stars. College basketball, Duke, Kentucky, the two most watch teams are a compilation of stars. Nobody's bothered by that. But suddenly in the NBA, we don't like a compilation of stars. You're lying to yourself. Joining forces is a big thing everywhere. Do you know what the hot thing in music is its music festivals? Jay Z lady Gaga, I not even going to embarrass myself in name the groups. They all join forces, Coachella what's happening in movies. It's not a superhero movie. Superheroes. Now, joe. Join forces. I watch those movies with my son award shows all the stars. They still get pretty good ratings beaten one place. Golden State Warriors dynasties the highest rated non LeBron thing in the NBA. The major league baseball all-star game outright every regular season game. And it doesn't even count by the way, eight million people eight and a half million watched the Pro Bowl this weekend. It certainly wasn't good football. And it never is. But it's a compilation of stars. We like a compilation of stars we pay for it in music, we pay for it in movies about the only thing anybody goes in watches anywhere. More in the movies. I'm not talking artistically. I'm talking who what people pay to see is a compilation of stars and superheroes award shows all star games. The Lakers and LeBron aren't taking anything away from New Orleans. They're just more interesting. You don't think LeBron? Anthony Davis is more interesting than the current situation in New Orleans people in New Orleans, don't watch the pelicans the local fans aren't interested in the pelicans. I'm supposed to be a basketball has replaced. Highschool is the thing coaches watch and recruit from it's just a bunch of great players all joining forces in Atlanta, and Detroit and DC and Dallas and L A NC ATL college basketball, the millennials. They don't wanna go to Duke or Kentucky, Kansas. But in the NBA at bothers us. Why you and I know when Anthony Davis if Anthony Davis probably when joins LeBron it will be a ratings hit don't deny it Pasco. Balls always been a dynasty sport, the Celtics won eleven titles. John wooden one ten at twelve. Not sure why it bothers everybody in the current NBA. Then bother you a you than volume college at Duke and Kentucky, always get all the players.

"I said back at back at stores, we have the ability to form a team because our players only have each other and the guys feel like that was that that was a big part of why we were really good. Is that that that you guys spent so much time together because there really weren't any any distractions, you really didn't want what even if you wanted to there really wasn't a lot of things to do. Yeah. Yeah, no one else. Busted, you know, I stayed in the dorm my four years only maybe one or two players had cars, so we not only do we stay indoors or staying in the same dorm. We just spent a lot of time around each other and and that helped us, you know, build friendships, we would bond together. But without question, you know, if we're gonna go out at night, there was only two places we go and and we, we just did everything together. If somebody was going out, they would call on a landline. All the other players on the tell the more they were going and and we were just spend time together. And I think that's really important every successful scheme that I've been on had an element of that where players could really spend time with each other bond with each other. And of course you know, there's a bunch of women together bunch of people together. You're gonna have issues, but you have no other other way to handle it other than to resolve them. And, and I think without question, you know, in back in that era when you spend that much time. Together. It definitely helped and and translated over sphere play on the court. Well, leading up to that. The people listening would say. You know what? What was the biggest difference before college in the whole recruiting thing as opposed to today you, you guys all played on a Uteem's and you were trying to win a national championship for the AAU tournaments sixteen and under seventeen and under whatever the case may be. So all of your teammates were Massachusetts kids for the most part, I think, yeah, one kid from New York bums, they can, but. You had the win in your area, and then you went to some godforsaken place in the country to play for a national championship, and that's much different than what you see today. Describe what that was like relative to what you see today. Well, yeah, I mean, winning mattered for pursuer, but I played on a team called the central mass Cooper's I'm, I lived in western Massachusetts that I play for central mass because they want not eighteen in all of less arrest. If there was ninety girls a basketball. So I play for team in central back and we had to win the reason we went out to Boston and when he had to compete in determinant play other teams from the state and we had to win that we were one team from Massachusetts representing the state in the national tournament customer godforsaken places. For me, it was report, Louisiana was the first place that we went for a national age tournament. We went to Charleston, West Virginia, went to Chattanooga, maybe Tennessee. He would always, you know, and playing Clovis New Mexico. No, we're never played clover. Great. I would write letters to businesses. My town and ask them. 'cause meth has put forward to to send me finding a place to get. Actually when we were, we played in Shreveport. My parents drove there, but I would write letters businesses in in my community and they would help support me so that I could. I could make say, triplet you get the Nashville tournament. And yeah, I was double elimination. So through the game was on, and that was the only tournament you played in national certament. You played in all seasons, Wang really matters. You know, didn't have people coming in and out of the team like the eleven players, twelve players. We had that with your team, you practice every weekend in the spring that try to win your state tournament and then go to the national.
