I'm good like that we can help each other here. so going back Alonzo mourning Alonzo mourning way back in the day was booked to come on the show. and yet he had not been on the show for a long time and I knew that he was not a big fan of mine but again they're people that I've had an issue with that we fix I come about fixing things not breaking things not thought to myself this can be a good opportunity he's got a really good cause kidney disease. he's got a fascinating career Alonzo mourning I'm gonna fix this let's book it so I research the hell out of that I put my **** off I'm fired up really eager to do it in any comes on and I introduced and I try to talk basketball with him in in in a really hostile way says on all on a we're not doing that I'm here to talk about kidney disease. and you know that was I was a bit younger back then L. more impulsive and I started kind of rise up on Mike now you know what it is good because I'm ski do the interview and we'll let that go he had no interest in playing the game he is wanted talk kidney disease so we did and that was that and we never spoken since. Jerry rice was not gonna do that he didn't hijacked the interview he's got to put it out there not give an example of a guy who did hijacked the interview once and all the many thing by it but Barry Sanders did this to me Superbowl Detroit berry in studio TV show pitching in promoting one of the credit card companies now my man RIP get right from the for you right from the jump and went right into his whole patch and it was a long and it was rambling and it was disconcerting so. my message and Jerry rice did not do that he did the whole interview so by the end of the interview I was eager to talk to him about rice and even when you change my name to rice or pasta or rice a Roni as some of you have said. so memo to flax memo to Publicis memo to athletes memo to retired athletes if you end up on the wrong show with a conditional pitch I get it I will take care of you if you take care of the interview and even if you don't I'll probably give you the quest it will give you the question I always do I'm good like that but no that was not an Alonzo mourning situation in order I think it would. rice not history now we go way back like this guy dear Jim did you stock up on lotion in preparation for the Jerry rice interview John west LA war rich learning to blank S.

Critique the pistons and Alvin nobody did that in, I don't know of Darko, and I do remember him but I don't know if he would have been better served in today's NBA because it, it felt like he was a finance seven footer member. Andre bungee Johnny with Toronto Mariano. It a solid career going for while not a bust. A disappointment. Yes. Mclovin, that's a bus though because you need your number one to carry you a certain extent. I don't you know, I t totally what you're saying. He's not a terrible player. But when you're number one, you need to hit home runs. Twenty one and a half points at age twenty five team. Not very good. Don't think what about Brad. Daugherty. I know that he was an all star, but it was in the era. The Sixers drat had a chance to draft him in eighty six and they trade him for ROY Hinton. Yeah. But it was an era in the eighties where the number one pick was a superstar center every year because there used to be centers there used to be seven for three guys in America who could dominate. I don't know what happened and let's call the three point line. Is that what it is? So I felt like Dorothy was a bus. If you had the three point line, I'd love to look at what these rosters would resemble now, if you if there was no three point line. The these big men would be back vote, then all of a sudden porzingas would be playing down low, you know, Garnett would be as center, you know, it would completely change basketball. The Durant would be a power forward, you wouldn't need anybody to be taken, you know, twenty five footers, but those guys it yet a string of you went from Ewing. Akeem shack David Robinson. It was like an age of goliaths. He's huge. Big seven foot guys. I don't see any of them in the draft there. That's how physically Bill. It doesn't seem like they're building the height. Is there? The the Bill. Right. Not their exact like David Robert, you're exactly. Well, David Robinson was an athlete. David, David was sculpted seven foot. You know, king look great, too. Even Ewing was in a big guy when he came into the league. I mean he's tall. But he wasn't big shack was big. Trying to think who else who came in where you go. Boy that guy can only play down low Alonzo Mourning. Does does built Matombo is a big man. But Zoe was you know, he was sculpted too. Franken california. Hi, frank. What do you have for me? How you doing? From bomb's gonna say, Vlada divas, another guy down low that would never pay. But you gotta talk about biggest but and I don't know why we keep giving this guy a pass Christian Leitner the guy came out at Duke. I mean he was on the dream team. You know, to me like they put him on the dream team. And I can't even remember what he drafted him. You know, I'm Minnesota. Okay. Yeah. So, you know, I mean you're the guy, you know, so I don't know. Thanks, frank. I- Leitner played about fourteen years, though. So I don't know. Can you be a bust if you play it's the other players around him? And where they were drafted know what they became but Leitner played like fourteen or fifteen years in the first seven years of Christian late news career, he averaged seventeen points and eight rebounds a game. That's definitely not a bad NBA player, but he can never match college where he was the focal point of the entire sport..

You're thinking about love you to snoop was cool. A couple times one time when I we smoke together that was cool. George Clooney was exactly as you'd expect super cool. Did he as ING? I loved him so much one time when I was a ball boy for the Phoenix. I mean everybody the nineteen ninety three ninety four season. I guess it was good. It was a ball boy for the sons, and they believe that was it had to been that you're they had all star game in Phoenix.

I don't know. I was just so stars drug. I'm like Patrick Ewing. Alonzo Mourning on my left and my right, amazing peeing right next to normal. Just like let me see. Hey, Bruce, Bruce. Who did you meet where they call or not? So when I used to wait tables at a restaurant, believe it or not Aretha Franklin actually game in last. It was really awesome. All of a sudden, like this big comes in, and then just her like two to her Body Guard and she came in she was so sweet. And even everyone came up here table, she actually pictures with a lot of people and she was super nice to everybody. That's the other reason I think a lot of celebrities don't wanna take the selfish because if you walk up to a celebrity, and ask for selfie and someone sees you do that then everybody's doing, and so they probably have to say, no not because they're mean it's because like I don't have I really don't have time to do this right now. I don't want to tell people know, especially when it's in a casual setting and they're not like outta work function. Or, you know, appearance or something. Thank you, Bruce. Thank you have a great day far hand. Hey, good morning. Who did you meet cool or not?

And there with a full beard was it corral ordering a Big Mac? School. Tell me he was cool. So he was there with his wife, actually, and at first, nobody really recognize them. Because I mean he had a beard, and I never seen what the mayor like I just started watching the office at the time. But then we asked for picture, he was like, no, I'm with my kids, and I don't think it'd be a good idea right now. But I was filming apparently Austrian documentary or something. Get this family when you're with your care. I understand that really rude about it or anything, but he was really just not my kids out there on me. I'm enjoying family man. Thank you. Glad you called Liz at. This elaborately you met and was his person cooler, not. Oh my God. Yes. I'm at Demi Moore and I was in the room.

But an atomic -ly, but that's what doctors will tell you as far as Alonzo Mourning Alonzo Mourning had a kidney situation where you had to remove a kidney and to have a kidney transplant. So that is not anywhere like. Near what the what is happening here. Right. Okay. Well, how about Kevin Durant, and what's happening with the V idea that it's so fresh people's minds that, you know what is the question, though? I don't understand. I mean, the question is, is, is you guys really believe that Brandon Ingram is enough to sort of get a deal done for Anthony Davis. It's up to David Griffin. What he believes. And he's only said the most glowing things about Brandon Ingram in his time as an MBA analyst, and he was asked over and over over again including by George. Yeah. He was called him a newborn. Dear literally kid doesn't even have total control of his extremities yet. He's so long. He's got like that. Newborn. Dear lack, of course, strength for Tyree Irving to say that he thought he was defensively. Tough for him is a huge statement by kyri, and it says a lot about the fact that Brandon is making big strides in his core strength earlier this year. I saw him get blown by like he was nailed to the floor at times against point guards and he's quickly and very quickly uh thing, that's a big deal. He's twenty one years old, it defies the imagination. How old was Victor Oladipo when he hit for Indiana. And this kid's way more. Physically get than victory will the deep sounds likes them to me, those hard for Sodano to here, also because I had been the pro Ingram guys had been not anti Ingram, but less pro. No. I just said he can't play with the brine. That's what I said. You're twisting everything. I've said I said, he's not good playing with LeBron which over the larger Saint Louis was the case was higher on Ingram me or you Ingraham's your higher on all these young kids. You again there your children. Here's a good question for you. Dave on Twitter. Danny asks. How is it only the Lakers offered to the pelicans is being leaked again? He said he wanted to add that it with emphasis, like, why are we getting Celtics information or clear? Celtics information is question I think part of it is that the Lakers are the team that national reporters want to report on because it's kind of the most intriguing team that's out there. So you have Mark Stein in New York Times out there, RIC Bucher Bleacher report Asia ordered hausky probably went horse. Ramona Shelburne, all sorts of people that work ESPN. Like that's why you get Lakers information because that's where the most thirst is. Right. I'm not so sure. They we haven't heard details out of Boston..

"On the ticket. Wait who the hell is third. If we're doing sports figures, I think I can make a solid argument for Don Shula. But we all we all agree. First and second it's not even close is not a reconnaissance Jason Taylor now. Third third. It's a hall of Famer first ballot. If we're including coaches, my mount Rushmore is Wade Marino, Shula and Riley. But what if you're not including coach, then then JT definitely is is up there. But is he third who would go ahead of Jason Taylor? I think you put Jason Taylor. Zach Thomas together. They were literally family, right? Oh for doing combos. I mean third might be LeBron for years about how about third being LeBron. About that. Because Jason Taylor was beloved down here. Even though he played for the jets people seem to forget about that. And the Redskins. While he was traded there. But the he made the decision to go to the hated rival jets. But it's all brawn. Okay. It's not that hard as I thought it was run. I don't think. Oh, Mike because it's got it. Can't just be excellent. Gotta be excellence and emotional connection to a dude that endures long after he's done playing it. Yeah. Well, two titles blue. No, none of those number one. And he didn't even win one titles. I think in this conversation longevity does come. That's why Zach Thomas would be up there. Very very popular for a very long time. Lonzo morning. Oh that that's a better one than I think Jason Taylor. Honestly, that's just because you're a basketball kid you football. I know you didn't love the dolphins fan. When Jason Taylor was close to his peak because when the Browns moved to Baltimore, I wasn't going to support the raven. So the dolphins were my team that whole Jimmy Johnson era. I really liked that team. But no, I think Alonzo Mourning if you're doing coaches, I know you do Riley and Shula. But Jimmy Johnson is well, no because of the hurricanes, right? You have to add the hurricanes. Still the only guy who's coach both teams. Yeah. But it did end as a bit of a disappointment down here. Head coach both teams want. He was a part of that that hurricane staff, and honestly what a legend. Cody, did you ever get into did you ever confirmed in anyone ever confirmed? The Dave wants that at one point was offered a ten or twenty year deal to be the university of Miami coach wild. He was the dolphin coach. It was something that I saw reported at the time. But I was never able to confirm it from anybody. I don't think it's ever been confirmed. But you remember what I'm talking about? Right. I remember hearing the speculation about that. I don't remember who reported it. I just remember hearing it as rumors and stuff. How jealous was Greg? Cody, Chris, how jealous was your father this morning that my Wade column got out there minutes before his did? He was on Twitter yesterday telling everybody, my Wade column drops at six AM. I did six AM sharp. Right. Wade column. Trump's right. I wanted online before you're calling and I did I'm not even kidding. I had a conversation yesterday with two of the herald sportscenter.

"And and when you look at the great defensive bigs that we have right now. Whether it's go bear cappella our Horford, Draymond green. If you wanna call him a big, that's the hallmark is that they can switch out there. But then they also can get back in and take care of business. All right, guys. This question needs to be asked today. Better. He career Zoar Bosh. Ooh. Doesn't need to be accident. But okay. Wow. That's well, it was just as good us tomorrow. I'm to answer that's actually yesterday or he he could ask it yesterday. Because he wasn't here. That's true. Yeah. Wow. I mean, when you think of Zoe you think of defense, I I wasn't either defensive player of the year one year and and top three a couple of times. But Bosh is maybe more balanced. It may be better on both ends. It's man not on the I think they're comparable on the defensive end. But on the offense of end Bosh gave you more is that fair, or no, I think it's weird because Zo was the centerpiece of those Miami teams early on right? Tim Hardaway hit a lot of big shots. But it was built around Alonzo Mourning whereas Boston have that as we start where he didn't have that luxury when he was supposed to have it, you know, health betrayed it from one season made a an all star game, and then sort of feeling something in his calf during that skills competition on there. I think you take everything that they have they answers, blocks assists. The acids toss it in a big soup mix it up what comes out to rings two rings to rain soup. Chris apparently thinks the answer is brush. Yes. Answers bosh. Well, ZOA certainly more intimidating. So was whatever the opposite of soft is that that was oh, you know, when you think of a menacing on the court demeanor. You start was oh in my mind. Yeah. And menacing on-court meaner is not really something that ever really associated with Chris Bosh, even though probably the best roar in the game. Yes. When he got fired up and he had a flexing ice apps with the mouthpiece. His mouth gets so big. Maybe he would unhinge his job mouth would go agape. There really was no better start to team relationship than Bosch. When he was with the raptors. 'cause he kind of looks like a raptor. Yeah. There was that. Joe? Flacco looked like the raven on the helmet. Yeah. Bosch looking like the raptor. And Joe flacco, I think are are the two that win that game for me personally. This is getting to the point where reliving these the big three years when LeBron was down here specifically, this feels super nostalgic. And if making me sad, it feels long ago. I mean, LeBron that was to uniforms ago for LeBron boss says he's over it now. And he's at peace and all that. But as we're talking right now, I'm like, oh, no man because I'm not at peace of the how can he be at peace with it? I mean, what option does he have like the go crazy? Right. So he's decided to take the I don't know if you can decide to not go crazy. I think when you go crazy you don't have control over that. It's not like think I've will pass on going crazy today. They don't think it works like that. I mean, he's probably I'm being reckless here. He's probably talked to people if he's going through issues, he's probably sat down and talked with people. And you know, he's probably just in a better place, mentally, how do you how if you like is none of us are psych professionals? But like how would you counsel? Someone this other like that. I don't know, man. This is only a recent development for Chris Bosh because as recently as I think the summer we were still hearing whispers of attempted comeback. Rop linka was his former age and Los Angeles was always something that was rumored. I don't know if something was ongoing with his medical history..

I don't steal my material. I do. All right, saying I'll ask you the question that it wasn't originally intended for you. But we lost the connection real quick couple of weeks ago. I asked you if the Miami Heat were basically, what this was or did I have any hope that their best basketball was a head of them. It would appear that they're playing better Simpson. And I would say even though that they have some losses to some good teams, including some bad losses in terms of blow outs. This is probably the best. Miami Heat basketball. We've seen all season. Yeah. I definitely think. So they've won what nine out of twelve and they're they're playing pretty good people. They're going to get tested again down the stretch. And look I think that they'll they'll make it tough on whoever they play in the first round. Now. I don't mean that's going to the to the end of game seven. But I think they'll make it tough. I like last year against Philly. I mean, you guys were talking that was a tough series. I don't care that. It was five games. Like Philly got tested in that series. I think Miami will do same thing. Again this year. We got an exciting week of heap asking because they're big games. And Chris Bosh jersey retirement. I know STAN loves jersey retirement. Hopefully, it goes as long as Alonzo Mourning's went we're gonna our we actually have Chris Bosh on this week Southie session. So we'll get into that. When we go national..

And who he is on the inside is something else. Yeah. It is a book. And then there's the cover, and it goes all the way back to Adolf up at Kentucky and everything else all the way through I'm so looking forward to this. And how about a sensitive side to him because he is one of the toughest people I've ever been around and I've only been around in from a distance. But how about the sensitive side of Pat Riley that he never lets you see I'll tell you a couple of stories without wanting to ruin the surprise is there's some intimate stuff in there about the cost to his family and how he's had to do some big things late in life to compensate for some of the things he missed earlier in life.

Ori- Mike it's Alonzo Mourning after you remember those Nick series. They were bloodbaths they were sewage basketball games in the eighties. Everybody fighting and his one seed loss to the eight seeded Knicks. And then at the end, he sort of just realized oh, this isn't gonna work. We're not going to get there. And after that game he's at his office and he's at his desk, and he is sobbing and Alonzo because he knows it's over that team against the New York rival, his New York history and Alonzo Mourning points to them and says, you haven't talked to your team get out there and do your bleeping job and Pat Riley realize, yeah, I need to finish the season off I need to go talk to them, even though I'm broken, and as he's talking about Alonzo Mourning Mike who is sort of the cartoon manifestation of Pat Riley's will write you work, and you will get to where Alonzo Mourning is the hall of fame physically pumped up muscles. Just all will. And it failed. The end. And so he gets emotional talking about the ways that that the way players care can inspire even the inspires the art of the conversation. Dan Le Batard, Pat Riley, Sunday five thirty eastern on ESPN really looking forward to watching Dan. Thanks a million. Have a good show today. I'll be listening on my way home while sportscenter tonight after North Carolina Duke was Levy and John Anderson full breakdown of the game reaction from both players and coaches, Rachel sit down with Kyrie and the latest on Bryce Harper..

"He didn't mind, Pat, it, you know, you could say FU to as long as you taught him something. So when he failed to get Alonzo Mourning title before two thousand and six he was talking about losing some of those series to the next and any breaks down just thinking. Of how Alonzo Mourning inspired him to inspire others. Like that that the the the cheap word in culture is cult right? And the Pat Reilly cult people will tell you that being harder working and in better shape than everybody is sort of the cost if you're gonna if you're gonna work for the man yet, look I got a chance to talk to Magic Johnson right after he took the job here with the Lakers. And I asked him, you know, who's brain did you pick? He told me he spent a week with Pat Riley talking about those particular things not only just the front office stuff and the potential ins and outs of that. But body fat and strength and being able to have endurance. And all those things that, you know, have become basically the mantra of him. And yeah, he does still have all these zealots for lack of a better term that will just kind of do that. Now. The funny thing is like how he turned those guys because as we kind of touched on briefly earlier, I keep gets to a situation where Magic Johnson called the shot. And allowed him to be the guy, and he was already, you know, having to walk into a situation where he's coaching an MVP like Kareem. Did you talk about how he turns guys into those zealots for lack of a better term. It's just an obsessive compulsive nece. That's unreasonable George at this age. I mean, what does he have left to accomplish? Let's think about this for a second fifty basketball years. The you'll see in the piece on Sunday. You will see that, you know, the angle from the hall of fame speech is being made by morning by Magic Johnson by Michael Jordan that this guy Linnea drums, five decades. Deep in basketball that he's still sitting here coming to the office for what George like for what why when he when he's got this home in Malibu that he's dying to get back to he's looking at home on his phone all the time all the cameras because he's got this home in Malibu, that's keeping some of those exotic cars, and he's always talking about getting back out there. And and just having the last part of his life the out there. But I don't think he's ever leaving the throne. I don't think that he can leave leave basketball and get on with his life. I think he's going to have his fingers in everything. And and that kind of delicate commitment that has caused him as I said a great deal of family time a great deal of life's big moments. If you're gonna make that trade he he's going to demand that the people come with them be disciples. So basically Malibu this notion of Malibu that he discussed with right Thomson is just a notion. It's a dream. But it probably will never really come to fruition. Nobody believes that he's ever going to retire. I'm I'm I'm teasing him relentlessly that he's going to still be sitting in the offense ten years after his death that he's going to be still they're just sort of weaken. Bernie's that's that'd be Pat Riley. Well, I mean he'd have had a great deal of success right with the air in tiding in the shadows. And allowing him to do all the you know, I throw my rings on the table myth building. Yeah. Yeah. For sure Dan Le Batard with us year of gin, check out the interview with Pat Riley the day in the life with Pat Riley. It's two thirty on ESPN on. Sunday. So makes you check that out before the NBA slate starts that afternoon or that evening, Dan..

"Holiday that has been commodified to make money off of your relationships and make you feel bad if you don't have one. So don't worry about it if you're single or in between or going through something right now, there's still about there for you. Call your mom or dad, or if they're not around just call us. Yeah. We'll probably won't answer. But we we're doing a show you. Yeah. My mom used to always send me a Valentine's card when I was single. And it simultaneously was so sweet and also very depressing like when your mom feels like I feel bad for her single again. So you send stuff to you single girlfriends? No, it's nice when I do that. Because it gives them a smile, I think so. From the loneliness. That's when my when I was single if my girlfriend's like sent me a cue card or a little gift like I thought it was nice to get some for the moment instead of get nothing. Yeah. I mean, I'm not fixing fixing. The problem knows a cold lonely night ahead helping him out of of net flicks. And hopefully, not a romantic movie. Well, the funny thing is it wasn't funny at the time. But now, it's kinda sweet is for my entire life. I never had a Valentine I went on one first date on Valentine's once and I had boyfriends that were never long we didn't date long enough to get to there. And it was never that time of year. So I just happened to never have Valentine I was kind of dating someone one year. And he literally blew me off was supposed to be coming to pick me up. And then I never heard from him in like three days ago. So much stuff come up, and I'm like, cool, you could have been dead. But thanks for that. This is a round Valentine's Day was on Valentine's Day. We had a Valentine's dinner date someone who is totally with someone else. One hundred percent, listen, what do you think I'm an idiot. No. But the point is you have to tell you is this nationals. Piece these days tomorrow, by the way, it's finishing the day. You find out your? I was on the New York Knicks. Yeah. And then I got bummed out of his my space top five eight nine. It was Tom still Thomas there for sure. So anyway, so this this becomes a sort of happy ending because I never had a Valentine. And then my husband was my first ever Valentine and his name is Valentine. That's his real first name. Oh my God. I know it's it's like some Swiss family name. He's like the eighth Valentine is. Usually when I hear Valentine Valentino. I think this guy with fish in his heels or okay? Sued on no lime green pinky ring. Yeah. Kind of never gone by Valentine's. So I don't have to look them in the face and comb Valentino tonight. No good. The whole night. Where we going. Anyway, I finally have Valentine it's forever. Ballantyne into sweet story. Because you're cheating your whole life was sports teams might as well. I don't know. I'm loyal. I. You can't be a bears fan and cheat with Aaron Rodgers. You have to be a bears fan exchanging. Tune like dude on Watson or something like that. We're quite but to shop. Shop Watson to listen. Honestly, I think part of it is my job. Now requires me to cover all national sports versus local troops. So I watch a ton of other teams and games as much as I watched my own now 'cause I don't have time to watch all of them. So screw listen yokels. There's a lot of talent out there. If you know what I'm saying. Oh, no doubt me as a big time wonders as our boy caz, one of our big fan said to paraphrase, Chris rock a fan is only as faithful as options and he's a Panthers fan as I can see from his hat, right? Yeah. Those he's probably showing Hornets Newton because he out front. Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson, this has been going and kindle do it Sarah Spain and Jason gov on ESPN radio.

"Did Chris Bosh officially retire? Or Chris Bosh just told Bill Simmons that he wasn't playing anymore. Yeah. The ringer says as a part of this retirement ceremony. He plans to officially retire. Chris Bosh does. And it was a hell of a run cut too short in game. That would if he had been able to stay healthy. He's the perfect kind of player for today's NBA where you're the Kevin Durant body type, and you can guard everybody, and you are uncommonly athletic for your size. He his health. The Miami Heat had two of these were just nuking Alonzo Mourning and Chris Bosh where your all of your plans get nuked by the rare a career ending injury. That's not suffered on the court. The that Chris Bosh would have aged better. And I'm not saying he's better than Wade. And LeBron he wasn't. But his game would have aged better than either one of their games. I believe and I'm saying that about LeBron James, I'm telling you, I believe to be as great a basketball players. There's ever been like, I don't I make him better than Michael Jordan. Right. I mean, he came here. I don't he came here. And it's interesting because he had to change his game. Chris Bosh had to and actually the changes that he made to his game or better suited for today's NBA. So you right. He was Kevin love. And he he was Kevin love endured it as a bit of a punchline scored zero points in a game seven said around here quite a bit. You never know the sacrifices you're making until you're actually making them, and he would have been a centerpiece for a long time. One of the great under reported stories around here is the late. Henry Thomas the agent for Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade because he was negotiating for both of them. And because LeBron caught the Miami. The heat off guard Henry Thomas negotiated a contract for Chris Bosh that ended up costing Dwayne Wade his other client money because the Miami Heat didn't have room to maxim both out. And when you think about that that is one of the many things in the agent business..

"I don't think I think you do have to honor the rail and shot some point. I don't know if it's a more on the floor or some sort of sign it in the arena, you can't retire. Ray? Allen's number jelly, Gilmore good. Just because of that moment, man. I know the best Sean NBA history of he's the only one that's the only debate the big three Billy's. Right. Like definitely gonna do. Lebron has them they'll hang up Riley suit at some point. Is there pushback that he he's not deserving because I think he's far more deserving of it than Shaquille O'Neal was really. And he's actually I know you Don, this is going to be called the embodiment of he culture, but Chris Bosh stands for all the same things. Terms of sacrifice accepting reduced role. It's not easy. Hell you see the panic attacks at Kevin love had in a similar situation. Now, people are starting to realize being the guy that people can easily point to how I mean Chris Bosh had some games had zero rebounds in game in an NBA finals clinching game. He scored zero points while doing dirty work on the defensive end. So I think he's actually a perfect candidate to have his jersey retired. And it makes sense chronologically. I mean, he's out of the league. No, he's not I guess officially retired. But he's all but retired. Whereas LeBron and Dwayne and you're done us are still playing. So it would have been weird to do it in any other order than than Bosh. I yeah. But they had like has are not has. I'm sorry heart. Right away waited awhile Alonzo, Mourning shack waited years. I mean shack left with bad blood with the heat, right? It wasn't an immediate thing. That's why it's kind of like, you would think the face of all of this, obviously is Dwayne Wade. He put this together. I mean, you could argue away. I I would think I mean, it doesn't ultimately it doesn't matter. It just feels like, oh, we're going to do next month. Surprise, you know, I felt bad for Toronto. When the announcement was made because the whole thing was, oh, this is home. This is home his home. And it's like we played the majority of his career in Toronto. He was more productive. He had more games in Toronto. He took less a lesser role here, which has to do it. But I did feel bad for Toronto. Like, he's not acknowledging the Toronto existed. I think is actually sort of in line with the time line that Alonzo Mourning had in terms of date that he retired to the actual jersey retirement. Remember, it's been awhile since we've seen Chris Bosh out on a basketball court. The last time we saw him on a Pasco ball court. He was wearing a heat jersey. So it's hard for us to realize that it doesn't seem as like as much time. You have LeBron changing to to uniform since then so it doesn't seem the same Wayne. But it it sort of aligned with that Alonzo Mourning timeline am I only one Chris Bosh is my favorite he player ever. Really? Yeah. You're the only one I think you're Really? really. Yeah. Maybe three of the big three era. He was by far the most likeable likeable, but likable is different than your favorite. He everyone has to pick twain, wait. Thanks, brian. I said that during that time too. I always liked Bosch the bat. I think people would choose has lem. They would some would say Wade some would say has a somewhat say LeBron that wrong Bertrand Birdman was very popular. I there wasn't a single heat fan that had any sort of ill will or hatred or you've never frustrated you the way that Mario Chalmers did sure when he saw zero rebounds, you're like the F. But for the most part he was beloved for many of the things that Billy mentioned before the video bonds. He was the smile around a time run very hated team. He was the guy seemingly having the most fun with it. He won the opening press conference where he was speaking in Spanish trying to relate to the fans, and he sacrificed the most in terms of stats game. He sacrificed had to changes game. And then again, he stayed almost left, but he stayed. He also came in here one time in warm ice my jacket. I haven't watched it since. And there was a lot to like about Chris Bosh off the court a very intelligent thoughtful. Cerebral guy on athlete like in a lot of ways..

Larry Bird Alonzo, Mourning wants was number thirty three in basketball, guys, Patrick bird, Patrick Ewing. That's right. And e wings dunked on by Scotty p at the garden. Dumps ever. That's why Glen Rice I thought he was forty one was he he he was forty one on the heat. Right. You might be right. I don't know where be rabbit thirty two's, another strong one a strong number if you're making if you're making like fantasy teams based on just the jersey number. When did I give people advice to take the place of wasn't it last night show? Is remember talking about the bucks and the raptors I used to love Portland Trail Blazers man. Yeah. They plead yesterday day. Yeah. The trailblazers got him one thirty two one zero five she when you gave that parlay. You get the right side been giving people. I swear to God, I'm like four no five, and we as crazy. Yeah. NBA last five. Well, I do a lot of unconventional picks. Yeah. But I mean, I have I won't just say take him. They got great uniforms. I remember early in the year the jazz bit me in the ass a little bit because they were playing the blazers and they had a home and away. And I watch those and usually the traveling team on a back to back. It just it won't go their way, you know. But they they were on a roll then, but but the blazers kind of figured things out a little bit. And they're starting to play ball again. Like they were at the beginning of the year. He see that trade porzingas York. Josh Howard wars reacting to that New York largely with frustration. As I am it's ridiculous at this point to to be a Knicks fan. I'm watching I got the game on in the background right now. You know, lose into the Celtics. It's just the problem with that franchise. Is there still valued correct me if I'm wrong last I looked there still valued as the most valuable franchise in? NBA which is absurd. So there's no incentive to change one incentive. Is there for ownership to do anything different when they're Reagan and more money than anybody else? That's the problem. I think they should go back to the knickerbockers. I used to live off Knickerbocker avenue now, it'd be like why do they go away from that? That's all, you know, Utah Jazz used to be what New Orleans right because I don't know about a lot of jazz coming from Utah. Now, I remember when our aunt went to the jazz game in a in a nice dress and heels this she told our aunt when they moved to Salt Lake I'm picking you see the jazz tonight that was like a concert spe-speaking decked-out speaking of the jazz whenever someone on the courts back in the ninety s you're playing rec ball or whatever guys wearing too short shorts. We get down dachshund over there. Yeah. Horn a second. All right. The white guy ever to play basketball. All right, real quick. Because we got a we're going to bounce pretty soon. But just dillashaw look, you know, I'm a pretty big dillashaw fan. I like that guy. But here's the title of this story to teach you Bill Shaw labeled Henry's who does win a fluke still insists on a rematch that night. I'll give you a pass because you're emotional. You just got knocked in the head. All right. But I would say is this look champ because you're still champ of thirty five. It's soft you lost. But the do did hit you with a punch Henry has developed power. It's not like, oh my God. Where did this power? Come from. And he's a champion tune you far them because if you one you were going to tell everyone I beat Henry's Budo, and we're gonna go. Wow. That's a skin on your wall. Just like he beat a bum a tomato can a Tijuana taxi driver. So he shouldn't call it a fluke because it kind of takes away from what he what a call it had. He won. I agree. Here's the other thing champ. If you defend against a sunset or more. Is you get a paper viewpoints champ? If you go back to fight dillashaw at sorry. Twenty five of that. Yeah. You aren't chasing history. But then what you're one one..

"We had. He's on fun. I still time. Oh, yeah. Charlotte Hornets, Larry Johnson Alonzo Mourning. Supersonics Shawn Kemp in debt lift shrimp. Thank you very much. Really? Yes. Well, every once in a while. I I'd go to the pathetic Dallas Mavericks because they had Mike is Alina whose uncle was my driver's Ed teacher. Hey, you know, I used to like playing because I could play with Jordan. I wanna say might have been Horace Grant actually was. Thank you. Right. Remember seeing that wreck spects? He wrecks. The wrecks on the game. But I I would always play with the Utah Jazz Karl Malone and John Stockton. We're great do. Oh, then what like Chris Mullen and to I mean, you could just play with him and just shoot from court. I'm telling you that that was the NBA was fun to watch. And. Anyways. Okay. Yeah. This weekend. Brian's. Go to be upset that he missed the old school video game. I don't know. He's he's a nerd that. I don't know if he's video game nerd, I don't know video game third. But when I. And I guess looking back. I was I did get Nintendo power when I was a kid, and I love playing video games and. Dislike I like, we golf. I could do that all day, you know, actually, swinging the club real golf. But But that's that's okay. okay. You can't always go out and play real golfing. It's raining though. Okay. This sunday. Do you have do have the the spreads or anything? I heard them today. Listen to mad dog Russo on the way, home the I'm one of those weird guys at likes. Christopher rubio. In team for both is what I got on. Yahoo right three and a half. I heard might be spread against the patriots. Or there might be a hook here there say straight of three on those games. So we're starting off first game. I wanna say it's round. What what's your what NFC Los Angeles Rams at the New Orleans Saints. How do you see this game plan out? He taken straight up and would they cover the spread? I'm I'm mostly it's push. Because I'm I'm going to say I'm gonna go with the saints by three just because that's that's that's the hard bet. So to to actually have happened. So I'll go with that one. Yeah. I see I think the saints will start faster than they did last week. I don't think they're gonna be playing for behind. I think it's going to be more of the saints are going to be are going. You're the second half of game you go see the saints running the ball. You're going to see the Rams Chuck in the ball. But I mean, it's it's it's the championship games. Nothing would shock me. Oh, here's good question. Jeff I looked up before when's the last time of visiting team one either of the championship games. Visiting team. We know it happened to no five I'm pretty sure it happened before that because the giants did the same. Last time visiting team trying to think of it happened last year known on the AFC is asked year wasn't at the NFC. The didn't host eagles were the one seed remember they'd limped in with a 'cause they lost with the dogs. You're right. The dogs. It wasn't the giants. Was it? It was he's here. I'll I'll give you hint. Both the last time of isn't team won a conference championship game of the visiting won both both games and same year. And both teams scored twenty eight points a game. They won we had to tell me. I'm John that would be the ravens and the forty Niners in two thousand twelve puke. Yes. Fast ever since then it's been all home teams. Wow. That's interesting..

"Does he deserve a spot on that all star roster? I know he's not considered on the same level as Dwayne Wade. But most people and plus he's played forever. I mean, he should deserve an honorary spot too. I think there should be a ceremonial aspect to all star game rosters. They're they're not real games. They shouldn't be countered Israel games. And you know, if you've got all time greats who are about to leave the league give them a ceremonial nod. Whether they start or not whether they play or not, you know, bring them to the all star game have them introduced have them on the bench. The fans would love that. And if you're going to give fans the vote, then give fans vote and do what they say, Dwayne Wade and Vince Carter both in the east this year. Again, if Vince Carter. Says I'm going to retire this year. Do they both get a spot? Do you pick one over the other? Do they not get a spot does Dwayne? If he gets voted in turn it down and say, no, thanks. I'm good, right? Yeah. That's an interesting question. But, you know, the idea that worst case scenario, according to some of the purest, let's say Wayne weight and Vince Carter both starting the game. It to no detriment. Nobody the fans would love it. Probably you know, we have Carmelo Anthony start. I mean, the fans want to see stars even old fading stars. That's even better Carmelo Anthony signed with somebody at the minimum. And then says, I'm retiring, and he gets a spot on there too. Right. I mean him Dwayne Wade Vince didn't Vince Carter get his starting spot taken by Michael Jordan that year. Isn't that the way I think that's the way that worked out it would be full circle. But no events, he's not knowing Vince. But the way his career is he's probably gonna play police forty five. You know, what put Bill Russell out there? Give them one minute. Right. He's you know, he's he's doing well. He's in his mid seventy. It'd be fine. I mean, I'm down with that down with putting Bill Russell and. Yeah. From it. I don't think Alonzo Mourning got his just due right? So he might as well put him in there. He what his career with an injury. So he needs no big deal. So you want shack the planet the whole TNT crew. How about that? Wow. That's a celebrity game. I think people would go Arkley I for one. I for one of never watching the celebrity game. Even though it's on our network until I'm asked to play in it. I've been saying this if you times nobody at the network apparently respects me enough to even ask me say, hey, do you wanna play a come off the bench Bill? Oh, I don't think anyone cares enough of you. Watching the game to ask you to play. I mean, I'm forty one now. So same ages, Vince think they can still do it. What are you a point guard? Happy Friday, Greg. Yeah..
