Quick note from the GQ story, there was some great stuff in there, but it says that talking about you, your story hasn't always been rosy, and it's no wonder that he shied away from the press in recent years talking about you. He says, but as he leaned against the table, cradling his queue Allen Iverson seemed almost relieved to be talking like he'd been waiting for us to catch up to him. Do you feel like? And I know they mentioned too. You're working on an autobiography. You got a restaurant in Virginia coming. Is this a moment in your life? You know, 13 years removed from when you retired and this stage closing in on 50. It's not that bad. I'm on the other side. It's not that bad. Is this a moment where you're kind of reflecting more and feeling like you kind of want to share some of this stuff and writing it autobiography? I think we made Peter. I think all good, all good, Pete. I always make time for another legend. How you doing, man? You too. I think he threw me off, man. I love Peter. That's my guy. I just think I'm an open book. You know what I mean? I think so many people can learn from me from my trials tribulations, my ups and my downs. In my life, and I'm not afraid of expressing where I went wrong, the things that I did right. You know what I mean? And all the above. And you know, I feel like the things that I do for us, my autobiography, interviews, anything that I do. I feel like if I can help one person, you know what I mean, whether it be a kid or somebody middle age or older, you know what I mean? It's a great thing that they can learn from me and not make the mistake that I made or, you know, capitalize all the things that I did right. I think it's a beautiful thing. So, you know, I'm looking forward to all of those things that I can do in my life. And I'm outgoing. I'm so me. You know what I mean? I'm so in love with the guy that God made, you know what I mean? If I die today and I got a chance to come back tomorrow I would rather be me. So I'm cool with it. When you talk about some of those mistakes or regrets, anything in particular that stands out, the kind of thing that you think you guys can learn from. Basketball wise, what's up, AC? Basketball wise. I think the only thing that I probably regret is probably not embracing. The constructive criticism from Chris Brown. That's probably it. You know what I mean? The man did wonders in my career. He did so much for me. Like once I bought in to what he was selling, you know, that took me from just a talent, a great talent to, you know, all of the accolades that I was, you know, able to accomplish in my career. You know, without him, I would not be able to do none of the things that I have done. It was a bumpy last few years for you before you retired. And he regrets about the way those years went as you're going to Denver Detroit Memphis. I wouldn't. I wouldn't say that because I stood firm on what I believed in. You know, as far as my talent and who I was, you know, I always felt like if you put a person in front of me and they were better than me, regardless if I was The Rookie Allen Iverson, all the way through my whole career, the guy that's in front of me is better than me, then that's the guy that you put in front of me. If not, then I would have a problem with it. And I still feel that way today. Yeah. So no regrets throughout that when people talk about, oh, you know, he should have been a 6 man. He should have been like all that stuff. Because I didn't feel that way. You know what I mean? I could easily say that if I felt that the person in front of me was better than me. At that time. Yeah. You know what I mean? But nah, you know what I mean? Nah. I never submitted that one. The NBA over the course of a weekend like this, they always have what they call the tech summit. They're trotting out all these fancy things. You can put on the VR headsets and be whatever I was thinking like, if you could be transported back to like one moment in your career, like happiest one or the most successful one, like what's the memory like if you could just go relive a game, a shot, what would it be? Wow, that's a great question. I don't know, there's so many. There's so many. That's right. I might have gotten too creative with that question, but it's awesome. Awesome, awesome question. And it's not one that you could just answer off top. I'll take a lot of career highlights so it would be allowed to choose for Bobby. Yeah, because, you know, it's some things that I could have, I would think, in my mind, I would think so many things that I could have did. Better. You know what I mean? Opposed to making, you know, a great situation for me, you know, making it even more awesome. But, you know, I would think of something that I could have probably did better in a game. Or even, or even a decision making process. I think the thing that I probably would change the most was probably a grand to the trade to Detroit, you know what I mean? 'cause I thought that was the greatest opportunity for me to win a jammy and ship, you know what I mean? But I thought the circumstances would have been a lot better, you know what I mean? Because it would have been, you know, I was traded for.

"Everybody on my shoulders. I'm going to carry the nuts into the playoffs. So that's my first spec. My next one's very easy. Row you mentioned this person earlier. Every time he comes on the screen, I absolutely have to stop what I'm doing. And I'm watching this game and I'm watching him play because he's a human highlight reel. Give me the grizzlies and John Moran. That team as a young and up and coming team and what they accomplished last year, super fun. But this is a one man peck for me. It's the John Moran highlight show. I get it. It's a safe pick. You would want the grays. Everybody wants the cres. He's another guy like Zion where you're like, I mean, I think he's healthier, but you're like, how long can a human do this for? You know? Like he launches himself out of a cannon four times a game. It's amazing. Part of he kind of reminds me I grew up on, you know, the Charles Barkley team's right after that, obviously, was Allen Iverson. And he has super for what you're saying like launch himself out of a cannon for his size. Every time he goes into the air, I'm like, oh man, there's so much contact coming. I hope he doesn't hit the deck too hard. And then he springs back up and he's back at it and he's just like, he's a Jack in the box. It's amazing to watch. Can I throw some like, so also you get Steven Adams moments, which are just like each one of treasure. You know what I mean? The other day, I mean, he's like taking other people's towels. He's given him a job. You also get, if he ever makes it up to the big time roster on these games where he swings up, you get Kenneth Lofton junior, who is, as wide as he is tall, and he's like 6 5. He's a thick dude. It's fun to see someone out there who doesn't look like a NBA player, being an NBA player, just watching a big dude, somebody who are like, you can see yourself on the screen. If you're a thicker cut of meat, like I am, that alone is worth switching over. If like, hey, Kenneth Lofton, junior's getting some garbage minutes. Let me go see grimace sets and picks. You love a thicker color meat. I like that. I love it. I don't know. I don't know if I've told this story on the podcast before I just want to say real quick. I was in Oklahoma City doing a story on Chris Paul in December 2019, and I'm interviewing Steven Adams for it.

"Tim, do we have time to play Pete, Pete, said, before Lee Smith coming over with this vlog? Yeah, play, this is Pete said, on the show, so we can talk about what this is really about. This dispute with Trump. It's about paperwork. Check this out. There's no rationalization or justification for it. And then when you compare it to what you and others have covered so well, the idea that the FBI knew about Hunter Biden's laptop, we're told not to look into it and at the same time gave a heads up to social media companies to say, make sure you characterize this as Russian disinformation and suppress it. And that same FBI is fighting over paperwork. It's like it's like Allen Iverson, we said it. We're talking about practice. You talking about practice. So you're talking about one of my favorite sound bites. It's one of my favorite ones. This is about paperwork? Really? With the national archives, you're telling me it's about paperwork, no, no, no. It's about a lot more than that. They're looking for crimes so they can prevent him from running Jim, you got to play it. Allen Iverson on practice. But it's easy to talk about it's easy to sum it up. When you just talk about practice, we sit in here. I supposed to be the franchise player and we didn't hear talking about practice. Well, coach. I mean, listen, we talking about practice. Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talking about practice. Thank you, bell, owed to Pete hegseth. That was, I'm ashamed of myself that I didn't think of that analogy sooner. We're talking about practice. It reminds me of Jim Moore, the playoffs. Practice, we're talking about practice. This is about paperwork, you raided a former president's home about practice

"Prepare and prepare and prepare until you get that right opportunity. You won't feel success. There are so many guys in this league, Ryan, that are so talented. They're just in the wrong place. At the wrong time. You know, you look at a guy like Derek snow, way back when, never played in Seattle. But it took him going to play alongside Allen Iverson in Philadelphia alongside LeBron James in Cleveland for his career to take that next step. You know, people assume if you don't play, you can't play. And that couldn't be further from the truth. You get those four years in San Antonio. The Duncan that you knew in that first year where you win a championship in 99. I know you only got the four years with them, but did he end up becoming the personality in the person that you thought he would be, you know, like him. Right, he's had one of the greatest careers in its honestly becoming a little overlooked in a short amount of time. When you start asking, who would you rather have? To me, a great test is like, would you rather have Kobe or Duncan? And I'm like, why is this even an argument? And I know that pisses a lot of people off, but I kind of can't believe that there'd be another side to it just because it's crazy. This guy isn't that old, and all of a sudden, now people are just jumping all these other guys ahead of Duncan. And again, I always joke. I think I picked the spurs when the title ten straight years when I was on the air because I was just like, whatever. He'll figure it out. And you were right half the time. So what was that first impression of who he became been like for you? Well, okay, my first impression was, before I was drafted, right? The rookie combine. In Chicago, we were both slated to go the old one, right? The moody Bible. So we were both slated to go top 5. And I don't know if it was a Daniels Duncan. Alphabetical order thing. So I obviously knew who Tim Duncan was. Because he would have went first rather or not he left his senior year at junior year somewhat. So I knew so I walked into my hotel room and he's in there. We're roommates. Right? So I opened the door and my first thing was, oh man, shoot, what's up, Tim? You know what I mean? And he looked at me. He was like, who are you? You know what I mean? I'm from Bowen green, mid major guard that no one's ever heard of, really. And it's amazing at that point in 1997, and here we are 25 years later and he's one of my best Friends. You know what I mean? But that Tim Duncan that I met in that hotel room in 1997 and The Rookie pre draft camp is the same exact Tim Duncan. I know 25 years later in 2022. His personality, all of these different things that I've had an opportunity to grow and do life with him in different areas of his life. He is the exact same guy, the definition of he has not changed. I spent the open talking about bad business partners and I think right now we have a couple of examples of NBA players who are terrible business partners for the franchise. It's an understatement. We saw two of them get eliminated last night with the nets. Duncan may be the greatest business partner we've had in the modern era. And people could say, well, when pop sets the tone and Duncan buys in, then what are you going to do? What is that like? Because now it feels like it's not just a rarity. It may be, it may not happen again. I say all the time. I feel like Tim Duncan is the best teammate in professional sports history. And in his work, and in his work, obviously, you can have an argument for I'd say. And that's cool. It's a decent argument. You might be right now. Right. Right. The thing is, I didn't play with Steph. You know what I mean? So I'm saying that out of experience of who I was able to play with, his humbleness, his willingness to be coached, I don't know. I'll tell you right now, Ryan, I don't know if some of the things I saw were scripted. I don't know if some of the things I saw were disgusting events, but I know they weren't impactful. I know first day of training camp when I go in and after Tim Duncan wins for the year, pop laying into him like I haven't seen a player of that stature late into ever. And it wasn't about what pop did. It's about the way Tim responded. So I'm sitting there thinking myself, that dude's The Rookie of the year, David Robinson, who is the role model in idol of my older brother, who had his poster on our wall and pop laying into him because they're missing rotations, me coming off the bench. You know what that means? I better not miss that same rotation. So pop when we were at Tim's Jersey retirement night. Pop had a line, and I think it's almost obsolete now. He said, at the time, you know what, Tim, I just want to thank you for allowing me to coach you. That's big volumes. That speaks volume because in today's NBA, when you're star buys in, you good. When you start buying into the not just a positive, not just the offensive and defensive schemes. I'm talking about.

"Is from Jonathan, hey Raja, you are part of the 2001 Philadelphia 76ers team that went all the way to the NBA Finals. But how was it to be around Allen Iverson at the height of this peak? From city to city, he was the big ticket that everyone wanted to see. I'm from Seattle Washington. And as even as late as 2005, AI had a huge following every time the sixers came to key arena. It was a fascinating time to see as a fan. But how was it as a teammate to see it firsthand? Well, Jonathan, Jonathan it was, right? Yes, sir. Do we need a paywall? It was not. It was not conducive. To now let me stop. No, it was phenomenal. Look, as a young player coming into the league, when I was supposed to be sleeping, you know, 9 hours a night, and, you know, focusing on my task at hand, let's just say it could be really difficult to do that. AI was, I don't have any rockstar friends or rapper friends or anything like that, but he was a basketball star and a rap star slash rockstar combined. Everywhere we went, it was AI mania. It was a really cool and fun time to play. I told the story about it that was taking my son's over to football practice. And banned for TV came on. And I said to them, I was like, man, this was like 2000, 2001. I don't remember when it was released, but I told him about Capone and noriega. And I said, you know, I remember this song because in O one, we had just beaten the Lakers and Staples Center and me, AI, Aaron McKee, and somebody else were jamming to this song. I always remember it for that reason. And my young buck was like, dad, that is such a cool story. You were hanging out with Allen Iverson, listening to this. And it just struck me like yeah, I actually was. That was pretty fucking cool. And so when you ask about AI, it was unreal, man. We just, my rookie duties would be to get to the city. Drop a bag off in my room, go back downstairs to the truck, meet our equipment people, Scotty riegel and the like, help them get the bags up to the rooms. Make sure all of those were put where they need to go and then quickly go change my clothes and meet everyone down in the lobby to catch the limo to where to party was that. Yo, I got some stories. City the city, that was my grind. I had a quick story. When I may have been about 6 or 7 and, no, the next I remember my pops went out in Oakland. And you know, he probably, you know, I was a kid, but I stayed up late, I remember he came up at two when I went to go use the bathroom and he goes, he was like, yo, man, yo. I just went out with Allen Iverson. When he was, I don't know, man, probably like O one O two, one of those things. And he said, he said he said I went out with a, I was like, and you know, I was a smart asses. He was like, no, you did. He was like, nah, bro I did. And he was like, nah, I was waiting outside the club and there was this swath of people that walked in and he just went in with the he went in with the swath of people and he went and party with Iverson for tonight. He always went back to that story. I probably kicked it with your pops. Yeah. Shut up..

No, you're right, and he said that numerous times. And he's also stated that hey, man, I said I'd never be a college coach and look at me, I'm here now. That's why you can never say never. What we're seeing is self explanatory as well. A lot of energy. I got to play the game at the highest level.

So he's kind of new to the scene. I feel like it would be a big time Coach. In your first year you go. They had what they want to games. Um But I think it's going to come later down the road. You got to give him some time and what he's doing right now. It's phenomenal. So He's on his job so fast. Yeah, because Jim Harbaugh when he came in It seemed like hard but was kind of loved across the country when he first Oh, yeah, For sure. Yeah. Uh, you know, he was on, uh, he was on a budget commercials. You know, Khaki man. He was psycho. He's punching the quarterback in the face. ESPN shows all over the place. He was everywhere and now Jim Harbaugh Might just be the most hated coach in the country. And folks that's not an over at the guy is absolutely you know, either him or Brian Kelly, right? I think those are the two most hated. Yes, Jim Harbaugh is like Stifled across like everybody hates the guy. Um, I'm still struggling to you know, I I critique Jim Harbaugh because It's been a long time, and we've had so much success under him. So far, we've had folks believe it or not. Jim Harbaugh has done his job and an arbor um to the point where they got you back to a winning football team. Now go out there and get over the hump. The Pistons traded Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson because they thought he could not get them over the hub. And look we got. We got a shell of Allen Iverson for a year. Guys get shipped off when they cannot get over the hump. Jim Caldwell fired could get over the hump. Are you saying we should have traded chance develops? No. Okay, but that's that's why they traded because they said we have the roster right now. And they treated him like okay. You couldn't do it. Uh, but Jim called was another perfect example. Jim Caldwell was fired after 97 because I thought that Michigan was the Lions were supposed to be The squad for the next 10 years. He was fired. We got MADD. Patricia. What? When is Jim Harbaugh's time? When can you get over the hump? And the hub being Ohio State who just lost today. They got tested Week one against Minnesota. Will Ohio state struggle throughout the course of the year? Um It's possible they don't look like that the dominant issue from years past, but They're gonna have to go out there and make a justice which they will do their too talented for that. Yeah, I agree with that. And Ohio state. When I was watching the game today, Uh oh, Klatt was talking about Ohio State's defense, how they weren't changing anything. And that's what happened against Minnesota, too. And that was a pretty tight game. So I mean, eventually they're gonna They're going to get back to their ways. But You know if if I'm the defensive coordinator for our house that you gotta switch stuff up like I know that might have worked in defense. Yeah, so it's but I I think they're going to bounce back and Make a run. They really can't have any mistakes now in the big 10, so they can't lose another game. No to run the table unless Oregon goes out there, and, uh, you know, they absolutely dominate everybody across the country. But Oregon is kind of overlooked. I mean, organiz is sweet. They were awesome on both sides of the ball. They punched it down Ohio State's throat. There is Inside the zone read was their offense. It just goes. We're going to send our best guy. You said your best guy. Let's meet in the middle and Ohio State. Uh, Oregon, one. So in that quarterback for Oregon, he's got an arm to And he's a big fella. Yes, Like I ran over. There's a place in the second quarter. He's got to get that first out. He was a true freshman for Ohio State shot out of a cannon. And Organs quarterback got the line and just ran over him. Uh, impressive brown. I think his last name is Brown Jr. Yeah. They're gonna be tough team to beat. Yeah, especially now that This is kind of a weird week. 1.5 of a week two So far, Uh, you know, Clemson looked awful against Georgia, Georgia, they shot out of a candidate themselves and that on the defensive side of the ball Um, but It's been a weird week and a half with college football, right? U C L A just beat else. You? Yeah, she's going to now, Alice, you man. I mean, looking back to last year, too, as soon as they lost Joey B. It's not looking good and Ben Rouge at all at all. I love coach. Oh, um, I read his book a couple years ago. The guys absolutely hilarious. Um, he's just gonna have to go out there. Make adjustments. Bottom line. Um, that's tough to do in college football right from week to week, especially it's hard. Yeah, you go through. You go through a training camp, but it's these are the guys that we're going to roll with, and Um, this is the offense that we have to obey by. He's got smacked the mouth two weeks in a row harder to adjust out of that. That's the beauty of college football. But people have been saying over the last. This has been the funny trend on Twitter so far, uh throughout the last week is that they prefer college football over the NFL. One type of guy, are you? I'm a huge NFL guy. You're like, Fuck, Yeah. NFL over college any day of the week. See if I'm sitting on the couch and I'm not watching either my teams play I'd say NFL for fantasy reasons. Okay, um, but college football. You can't be the answer. College football. It's really up in the air question. I really don't know. I'd say college football, I think, okay at the end of the day. I mean, we're not very good at, uh, fantasy football, but no, no, we're not. And so I don't really care about it. But I think that changed this year for you. I don't know. We'll see. Yeah, We don't talk. Yeah, we can talk about that at the end of the show if we want some fantasy, um, because folks I had.

That's something that's really important because we're in a society now that wants to judge and wants to put in a box and And then bash you. If you're of a certain nature and an autocratic. Charismatic leader and alpha male has baggage just as An alpha female does just as a non alpha male does not for female dozen any other person on the earth of any nature walk of life. We are all flawed so an autocratic charismatic leader can still succeed But what comes with that is a tremendous drive which can rub people the wrong way. There's one famous story about kobe. Bryant and allen. Iverson that allen iverson tells said the super talented player for the philadelphia seventy sixers at that point in his career when he's at his peak and he was out late with kobe and he said where you going and kobe said.

"Coach of the men's basketball team at Georgetown. John Thompson built the program into a powerhouse when you arrived at the school teams record was three and 23. He changed that trajectory with a clear vision and plan. Thompson created Hoya paranoia with winning teams in the eighties. The lists of his many accomplishments is long and includes coaching 27 seasons of Georgetown, 20 seasons of which led to appearances in the NC, double a tournament. And John Thompson was the first black coach to win an NC double a title in 1984. When he himself was a young man applying to colleges. Thompson says he never even considered applying to Georgetown, whose own basketball team remained entirely white until the 1967. He attended Providence College on the recommendation of the Fame coach Red Auerback, who ultimately drafted Thompson to play for the Celtics. After two seasons with the team, Thompson decided to follow a different path, which ultimately led to his legendary coaching career. John Thompson's influence extended far beyond buckets. It went to education and policy and teaching his players to be confident and proud of themselves and their blackness. He recruited players like Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning to Kevin, with Jimbo and Allen Iverson. Ever seen credits Thompson for Saving his life, which he did once a hot property for college recruiters, Iverson was wrongly implicated in a brawl and jailed as a teenager. Thompson welcomed him when others shunned him. When John Thompson passed away in August 2020 a clip of Iverson at his 2016 Hall of Fame induction speech, explaining his love for Thompson went viral. This is Allen Iverson. I want to thank you. Um Coach Thompson. Mm hmm. Okay, Coast, something Saving my life. Mm hmm. We're giving me Opportunity. Um Was recruited. By every school in the country for football and basketball. And, uh, Answer that happened in high school, and all that was Taken away. No other teams. No other schools. We're recruiting me anymore. My mom went to Georgetown. And big Jim. Give me a chance. And he did. Hmm..

"As far as the when we look at storylines in sports. It's all fun when stuff when you predict something, and then it happens the way you thought it would happen, or when things get tied up with a bow or when the stories in sports are written that don't feel like they could be real that their movies right there. That's what makes sports so cool. Then with Tommy Lasorda, Marty said this beautifully yesterday, the last game he got to watch. In baseball. Or as as AH, living on this planet was the Dodgers win in the World Series. Say what you want about the Dodgers. I certainly do. Say what you want about a 60 game title. I certainly do. But as far as the sports landscape goes That's a pretty romantic movie ending. And that's what Marty was saying is when you pull Blake smell out of a game like that you're robbed of your movie ending. Not only when you when you you move a player like James Harden because he says he wants to be moved. Are you robbed of your movie, ending your kind of robbed of the movie all together as a fan who got to watch the started James Harden's career in Houston getting traded for from Oklahoma City. He shows up that first we dropped 45 points. Everybody goes. Oh, boy, this was This was a hell of a move for the thunder. I want to see the tree. Hated. Kevin Martin was the move for the thunder when they move James Harden to the Rockets. I think that's together, get back or one of the players. They got in return for hard and he was going to be a nice little, you know, asset for them, but Oklahoma City had three guys who have gone on to win MVPs and Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and James Harden. So you're sitting here now and you call it all right? He didn't get the job done in Houston. They didn't win a title in what was one of the Old time runs for an NBA franchise for a sports franchise in the Warriors. We got that movie, ending with the Warriors and with with the Cleveland Cavaliers After blowing the 31 lead, they go and they get Kevin Durant. They get to go back and face them yet again. It was kind of Ah, Kind of Ah redemption story for the words. That's the sort of stuff I think we love in sports things that you can't necessarily right. Well, when you just decide I don't want to play for this team anymore. And I'm only gonna play for teams explain. Z s so really the way things have worked out in the history of sports, and I, It has made me less of a fan of the MBA because of things like that. It also makes me like absolutely appreciate what the warriors have done with Steph Curry. And this has a lot to do with the type of person that Steph Curry is, and maybe it has a lot to do with him growing up in the NBA right with his dad being a pro, and the same goes for Clay Thompson with his dad being a pro and being that they were drafted the types of runs with players on one team that they're drafted by in the MBA. Do not happen the way it's happening now, who are the top? Who are the top 10 players in the league right now? You Steph Curry, the only one who's on the team. He was drafted by No joke. He Steph Curry, the only one if you were to rank the top 10 players give me the top five. You could go LeBron, you could go A D. Neither of them on the team that was drafted. Drafted them. Kevin Durant, not on the team that drafted him. James Harden, Russell Westbrook. Chris Paul, run him down. There is no player in the league that is one of the all time greats. Maybe a top 10 or top 15 player in the league. Players play players on the team that drafted except for Clay Thompson, and I think you could make the case that because of injury, we just don't know whether or not he's still a top 10. Or top 15 player in the league right, so but again, Clay Thompson and Steph that's my point is that the Warriors are doing things differently than everybody else has. And I don't Don't trip on players getting signed or leaving in free agency. It happens in baseball. It happens in football. We see it all the time. But also with football. The great teams don't move on from their quarterbacks, right, they I'm looking at and Bill Belichick the Patriots here great teams try to keep that quarterback because that's what makes you great. Where is in the NBA? Now? For some reason, relationships get stale on And maybe it's just that these guys are too close with each other. These guys are friends, and that's something that was maybe the lasting effect on me from the last dance. The Jordan Doc. The memory is how much disdain Some of these rivalries had for each other. Right. How much like distaste Isiah Thomas has for Jordan and vice versa. They do not like each other. I'm like, is that is that good? Like it's not great for guys. They hate each other unnecessarily. They're part of the same NBA fraternity But as a fan, don't she sort of want to believe that? That just sort of want to believe that my guys out there hating that guy on the other team and not asking for violence on anybody? I'm not asking for anybody to injure somebody else, But I want you to go so aggressively that you want to grind that guy into a paste. I want you to say you know what? Not only am I gonna beat your ass, but I'm gonna keep you off the team USA. I don't want to play with you. And that's basically what Michael Jordan did right. I am playing with Isaiah. He can play against me. He could try to beat me. That's all it is on now get these guys who are your best friends, right? You get LeBron shouting out staff. It is postgame presser. These guys play in the Olympics together. They play in the fever championships together. They're hanging out playing college duty or playing in their local run, and in whatever given city they're traveling to in that off season. So Thomason took a number that's just part of the landscape. There you go. There's one yacht is that's what I forgot that was just pulling. Guys out of the year. Yana still on the team that he signed with, but I'm gonna go with. You know what I still I'm gonna go, if not for long. I know. He just signed that Supermax deal. But this is how the MBA works. You stay with the team that drafted you so you can get your Super Max because that's the only team they can give you That dollar amount. Janos is gonna hang around until I don't know what 23 years from now, when that team says, Yeah, we've got to move on from some of these guys and the team's getting too expensive. Be honest, we're paying you A little bit too much. What kind of draft picks? Can you command And that's ultimately what happened with James Harden. He decided this off season. You know what? This ain't the team for me anymore. It was a fun run. Houston. We didn't get it done, and James Harden may very well go down as one of those Allen Iverson type players one of the best to never get a ring right just because of his his type of style of play, and Allen Iverson, one of the most dominant players. In the history of the league, One of the each change the landscape of the game. Certainly the image of basketball was changed by by Allen Iverson to basically what is sort of set the groundwork of the framework for what the MBA Became today Justus Farrah style goes, is becoming the front of the line with, you know, guys walking in and they're they're they're doing their fashion shows.
