"And he came up to us, Steve and I, he said, something that we're not used to. He said, I think you have to start sharing time, but the rookies. So we were like, wait, what? We're not fit 6 years. We talking about this is prime. We can get this team popping. What are you talking about? So I didn't like that. And it was my contract year. You know, and I'm shooting 40 something 44 from three. Listen, we not gonna do this one, buddy. They gonna have to wait. And jameer was my young boy from Philadelphia. You know, he from Justin. And then, you know, your Deshawn Stevenson, you had Keith bogans. We had a strong, young team. And, you know, I asked for the trade. And you know, the GM at the time, he was my guy. He tells me he says, listen, what do you want to go? So I'm like, you know what? What are my choices, you know? He gave me his cup of choices. He said Sacramento, I said, yo, yeah, I like Sacramento. Those guys pass the ball, they play well. They're winners. I'm going over there. So we were going to Boston. And he told me not to suit up and literally right before I went out on the floor. And I knew it was a trade now. So I go and get traded and I go to, you know, I get the Sacramento myself or Doug Chrissy Doug Chrissy went over to Orlando. I go to Sacramento. I would baby Brad Miller, Chris Webber, Paige's story. I mean, Matt Barnes was there as my guy, I love him. Kevin Martin was there. It was a nice group, nice group. We are, we did pretty well. We lost to Seattle in the playoffs where ray and Rashard Lewis, but you know, we had a nice route. We had a nice group of guys. Mike bibby, I got one year with Mike and Mike was his IQ super high. You know, he wasn't as athletic as a Steve Francis, you know, not too many point guards was like that. It was baron Davis and Steve Francis. In my era that were the most explosive point guards. And for Mike, in myself, Mike was a fundamental expert, you know, bounce passes, you know, chess passes, shoot the ball, the right way, you know, get off the ball kind of thing. And when I would Sacramento, the whole team had such a high IQ and Mike leading us and when you have a Chris Webber and then you have a Brad Miller, they were point guards as well. So it was easy to score with that type of team and having, like I said before, having Mike bibby in the backcourt with me. I think as much as I love Steve, you know, coming into the league. I think Mike and that team made it easier for me. To score. You know, I'm scoring 18 points shooting 47% from three and 40 some high 40s from two. And it was very easy. I didn't really have to dribble the ball this much. You know, Mike didn't have to do the ball as much. It was more so passing cut and come off a screen. So, you know, you know, Mike definitely deserves his flowers because he, to me, was one of the best point guards, especially Myra. And, you know, for me, I said to myself, this team was going to win regardless. Whether he had me or not, even though American 18 points, it's going to have, they're going to win, 'cause they were coach well, Rick Edelman, you know, Pete, you know, all those guys. And I said, you know what, I want to challenge. So I was a free agent. So, you know, my steak was high. So I said, it was Kobe was first, because Kobe's a free agent as well. So it was Kobe first and then it was someone else on me than someone else, whatever it was as far as the shooting guards, as far as reagents, top shooting guards. So, you know, I said to myself, I said, yeah, man. I didn't like LA. Did not like yell at it, because I'm from the east coast, all that fake stuff, blah, blah, blah. Whatever. And then I get to LA and it wasn't so much about LA, you know, me growing mentally and maturity wise, it was more so the people that come to our latest acting like there's something different. LA was amazing. The people from LA, the outdoor scene, the activities, the whole thing was just beautiful. And I'm like, wow, I said, you know what? I was in Spain. And I said, you know what? I'm going to try LA. I'm going to try to not call Sam cassell and I said, yo, what's up? I think you should come with me, man. And we can really turn this organization around. And at first saying it was a little more he was a little reluctant. And then he set up, yeah, Kat, let's do it. So we go to LA. And you know, I knew the history of 14 plus years, no playoffs. They always lose in, blah, blah, blah, blah, the whole thing. And I said to myself, it was more so a challenge for myself. It's like, can I help lead a team, Houston Rockets you make the playoffs? Sacramento, you make the playoffs, right? And that's why I was a little, you know, but heard about the Orlando because they lost, they only won 18 games a year before. So for me, I'm like, that would have been great to go there and help those guys, you know, uplift those guys and things like that. And that didn't happen. So I took it as more of a challenge going to the Los Angeles Clippers. And getting them to the playoffs, and you know, just seeing the faces of kadeem hardison and Billy Crystal and, you know, Freddie muniz and all those guys that were loyal fans for so many years. And once we clinch and we make it, I mean the city, the stadium, everything was just amazingly beautiful. Sam was a yeller, but it meant he meant it in a very uplifting way, right? And if you didn't have tough skin, it was kind of hard. But again, Sam would kind of get you out of the holes that you were in mentally, right? Because he would attack and then he would slow your brain down a little bit or he may give you the ball in the easy spot. Just different things like that. But I met Sam, my rookie year in Houston. And another underrated point guard that I love to death was Nick Van Exel. And him and Sam were tight as vice grips, okay? So they took me in. I was their guy. And they would teach me certain things along with Alvin Williams, just how to attack the game. How to play hard, how to do those different things. And, you know, for me, I think it's 2004, 2005. My 5th or 6th year is when I went to the clippers, and I was sitting there like, you know what? Sam was a fridge and I'm like, Sam, I think me and you should help the clippers, man. I think we can do this. And at first, he was like, nah, come on, cat. Are you serious? The clippers, I'm like, say I'm telling you, you gotta help them brand, you got Corey magda. You got a nice little unit there. These both of these boys average 20. They're gamers. All we gotta do is change the mindset. And having Sam, I don't think people really understand how lethal Sam was. Sam, he may have been scared or fearful inside, 'cause all of us have these emotions, right? But there's a certain amount of people that never show it. And he never showed that, right? He wanted to win all the time. And he would let you know that. Whether it's practice, you know, shooting drills, just different things like that. So I was blessed to be around a person that was so competitive. At a very young age in NBA, right? Because you can easily be around somebody that's a little docile, a little, you know, don't want to be competitive, things like that. But I make the next

I'm going to name my point guard and I'm just going to give him a jump shot because he did everything great. Jason Kidd. That's my point guard and I'm going to give him Steph Curry's jump shot. Or even Mark prices jump shot. Listen, I've never played poor guy in my life until I was a rookie year in the NBA. And if that ain't the heart of just get thrown into, you know, especially when you have a Scottie Pippen in the chemo one and a Charles Barkley, man, you know, you had to limit your mistakes. I didn't really have to do much, right? I just control what I can control. You know, I was topping assist attorney ratio. And then when you have those guys like that that are so good, you know, you don't have to play with the ball this much, right? Hopefully y'all don't get stripped. And then, you know, you pass it inside and go to a corner. So that was my rookie year. I made all rookie team doing that. But I credit a lot of that to my rookie year preparation of playing a point, or just, you know, being a basketball player period. But actually playing the point was to Alvin Williams who played footballing over and then he played for Portland in Toronto. So he helped me with a lot of my point guard skills growing up because album was always a point guard. So he was, you know, the smart point guard to get everybody involved. And I think for me, being in my rookie year, I just wanted to be on the floor. So the coach told me, you know, you got to pick up trash, you know, after games, then that's what I had to do. So that was my thing. I encourage children, younger kids, whatever the position is in any sport that controls the game. The playmaker, I think you should learn that one first. Because see when you once you learn that when I think the whole perspective perspective of the whole spectrum of the game opens up, right? So when boxing, of course, you're your own point guard, right? But in football, I was a quarterback, right? And then I moved to wide receiver, but then back to quarterback. But it shows me, you know, my old line, in my back, my back feel my receiver's slots, you know, post oh my guys. I know exactly what I know my def I know what the defense is going to do to us. So I'm understanding the game from a bigger perspective than a three or a four or a 5 man, or two, even a two guy, right? They just learned in their positions. So it's for us as point guards to get everybody in their position because he would the coach usually does is a culture say, yo, listen, cat. Listen, we're going to run this play and then we're going to run this play. Then we're going to run this place. So you got to remember three plays. And if you score rookie year and Rudy tomjanovich was like this, if you scroll on that play, run it again. Keep running it. And then don't look over here no more. If you don't score, run the next play. So now I got to maybe four or 5 plays down down the line. I have to remember the next play, and then put everybody in a position. Now I got to figure out, okay, the key mics it over here, this person likes it over there. They were hot over here. I'm becoming a little more strategic of how I, you know, enter the game mentally, right? So can I get Corey maguette, the ball early so he can get us into bonus early as a team because myself saying pacelle and Elton brand attacks the rim. So if Cory gets us in the bonus early, it kind of we dictate the game. It's like just different things like that. So, you know, I advise any younger person to learn the point where I position just for that perspective, right? It's just like, you know, I'm a single dad. So I have my own household. So you're not cooking in the cleaning and it is and the kids in the packing and lunches and I got to do it. You know, and as much as you want, you know, the family, 'cause the mother doesn't make some job as well. But you know, as much as, you know, you can't depend on someone else to do something because then when they're out there, what do I do? It's like, yo, turn the channel for me. And then they go and you're like, I don't even know how to work the remote. It's like, I need to learn how to do all this myself. So I think that perspective is being the point guard in life, right? And you don't really have to really control it, but just understand it. So when those people are not there, then your leadership skills starts to kick in. You know, when Steve came in, you know, he was phenomenal to me. It's a lot of people. You know, he's super explosive. I mean, he was the only guard that I saw on a nightly basis that would get ten, 12, 15 boards. And this is at a time where barren and Steve were the shorter guards and the league and we, at that time, in the early 2000s, at that time, the league was predominantly 7 footers. So you was an inside out game. And these guys are going in the attack and the Jermaine O'Neill's in the rashi Wallace's and the Tim Duncan's list goes on Lonzo mornings. It didn't matter. And to see Steve every single day. Regardless of hemoglobin being an older or Charles Barkley or Calvin kato was younger at the time, practice was even amazing. And he kind of taught me how to attack the rim because I picked up a ball at 13. I wasn't even the basketball player. I was a boxer and football player. So in playing basketball, you know, what guys better than you, I think that's what helped me elevate watching Steve crashed the boards on offense and dunking it over big guys. I think I can do that too. So I think that's what helped me with Steve was to use my athleticism to the best of my ability. We had a really good squad as well. I mean, Steve was at the one I was in two. Jimmy Jackson was at the three, who's amazing, you know, all around player. And then Calvin and Yao Ming. So we had a really great squad and we had guys coming off the bench, but you know, just to see that team, what Gary Payton, you know, who's one of the best point guards ever. And then you have Kobe Bryant, who's arguably the best you guard ever, you know, and then you have Rick Fox who's one of the best role players in Derek Fisher's coming off the bench and then Carl Malone, one of the best power forwards,

Yeah you've been talking that way. You can always try them from your phone i. That's a good one. that's what it's all about. That was telling me something good. We spent a few days conducting this experiment where he's been driving around his jeep. What'd you ryan back. Eater jeep just married Then mommy and then my van. But there's a little palm tree there to show kind of like honeymoon. It was just too small to write all that stuff. So that's all it roy. Until i wrote we see people driving around all the time going. Hey have birthday. Here's my ben. Hey just got married. Not been mo- we wondered if anyone was actually sending people money. And what ben mo is just an app where you can pay powell. Yeah it's just like anything else but you can send money easy. How much money have you raised since last wednesday. What's wednesday thursday. Friday saturday sunday and monday five days and i've raise zero dollars. Wow absolutely nothing. I check it every single day and i'm thinking what i'm going to ask you right now officially. Can we end this experiment because one. It's a. It's embarrassing. That i have this written in the back of my jeep and no one is paying me any money and i think it's because a couple of reasons one. I look like i'm fifty. I don't think anyone buying the fact that i just got married right. Newly people in the car. I just eat them right down on the back of vehicle. I've seen people speed up to me. Look at me and then drive off okay. And the second reason. I just feel like they're not buying the story. I have a jeep. Can i make suggestion. What changed the story. New baby need but again you're old new baby. I don't feel bad for you. Do four and one of them is pretty new. so i'm thinking. The homeless approach of being honest bad week need a couple beers then. Mommy that's funny. Then it's like all right. I don't feel bad for this guy. It's funny alvin williams. Some money do that one for a couple of days badly. Needs some beers rough week by me. A beer then mo when it makes me laugh that i've seen before is a need fuel for my jet. But he's in a truck that makes no sense that the one that's been a bad week could use a couple beers then moment. Okay okay all right. Let's get my window. How do we.

"Three point is a full. And when i came off the bench steph. Curry hit a couple. Tobias harris was secretly very very good also in this game they just got contributions river on and even a couple of times so tobias harris kind of entree young another big longer stronger guy and not just a little bit a little bit more difficult for trae young to get into his slow numbers. Were fine what he finished with. Twenty points and nine assists but it did not feel like he had much of an impact on this game at all. But none of the hawks really did. I didn't think. I didn't think anyone was sort of in that moment where it was like. They can sort of do this. I don't think it got closer than eight to ten points. And the hawks gallinari had what happened three that he claimed they sort had chances but it was like even when they did it. Felt like the sixers name would rattle off three or four straight baskets in a row and and they had these games so yeah. This is a massive game for the hawks tonight because they staring at a dushi. We didn't think that was probably gonna be the way it was going to be one. The hawks were looking great. I i really think. I figured it out but then i think doc rivers is also realized like danny green. No one's happy that the guys injured but they've got the personnel that can replace him. I thought i found out of this game. But i i'm not sure if he starts him i guess he probably does in in tonight's game but clearly if you can get in trae young's face and just make life difficult for him. It makes it difficult for the entire hawks offense and what they finished with one hundred and ten or something like that. But this game was not close to the sixers won this rump. Even though the margin was only sixteen at the end it was never even really that close. Yeah tasks like i said. Some of us were down. There were hanging out with some hawks pros and even they were like sort of saying. Hey we beat the knicks. You know they were still riding. That wave of like. We had trayvon quieting the msg crowd. I mean i don't wanna say. They've given up on their hawks. I would never say that about the hawks pros but it does. Even i could feel from them. It's like i don't think we can slow especially embiid let alone some of these other guys and being just goes to the line time and time again and they're like they're fouls because he's a monster. It's like what are you going to do. You went to the line. Sixteen times in game three. He's been to the to the line like twenty five percent of his offensive possessions in this playoffs. That's a crazy amount. But it makes sense when you're a guy and everybody's just go inside of me and go inside. They can't stop. You doesn't look it for the hawks but he had a quiet twenty seven and this one. I mean that. Was those quiet for him. Yeah they definitely can't stop and they decide to double. I just want to have watch team. That obviously had a new game plan. Hey we're going to double and be get it out of his hands. But then at the other end. I don't know if the lights are a little too bright for this young hawks team but they just didn't know who they were on the other really. I didn't. I didn't think that those guys stepped up offensively enough and ben simmons. Yeah put his foot down in one quarter had eleven point third quarter and that was that the hawks had no life in them. I thought the most entertaining part of the game for me was i was at the bar getting a drink and there was a man with a sort of a small suitcase said call. It was a large handbag full of cash that he was paying for drinks within everybody around. It was really enjoying that. That's a land base. So that was happening you know. The crowd cheered a little bit and and the sixers were a little pissed off that this happened. They cheered when embiid down with an injury. Or is limping. You know i was trying out. Shush the crowd flashbacks to the raptors fans cheering. Kevin durant went down in game five of the twenty nine hundred finals. Fans do that. It's unfortunate but fans do do that and that's really the only way the series is is turning. Feels like just the hawks. Yeah they just. They showed absolutely no life and it is unfortunate what happened. I think i think it really is even for the hawks boroughs. The lights are a little too bright. I mean i think that's just part of it. They just they just weren't in a flow and and yeah the hawks bros. Took me back again to the raptors. Two thousand one. They're they're extremely excited. That they wanna in madison square garden in round one just like the raptors did in two thousand one in game. Five win alvin williams. Hit that shot i was. I was driving with the hawks bros. on that one. Yeah man. that's it you're gonna win round one and that's about it been there done that but Yeah i i thought we saw game one. what happened. they just couldn't recoup regroup. I guess from from the sixers giving it to them in game two the they just they just weren't able to and it's just. It's unlikely right that they do that in game. Four here the sixers have every ounce of momentum right bead thirty nine and nine in game one trae followed that up with forty and thirteen in game two and then yeah a quiet. Twenty seven nine eight assists talking about those eight assists and three blocks in game three and i think if ben simmons is on on in game one of the series. I'm not this. Might be a sweep. If i'm being completely honest but we're here. They could hit a million threes tonight. And who knows what does it could be two to three. I just think it's unlikely with the way embiid's operating trae well. The hawks don't have anybody to the sixers three best players. And that's gonna be a problem because embiid can every single time he gets the ball or they double 'em and then they get a good shot from tobias harris. Like you said trae young doesn't really stand a chance against ben simmons when he's engaged in aggressive trying to score inside. The sixers are really good basketball team and they got taken off guard. I think in round one. They had a pretty easy first round series against the wizards whereas the hawks came in plan hype off. That nick series came out. Hit a ton of threes in game. One got the win. That's the recipe for the hawks. Getting another win in this series is hitting eighteen to twenty three so that you can kind of out math the philadelphia seventy sixers but this series is over. It's just a matter of if it'll be five or six games depending on how hot the hawks are shooting. We've got tweeted the knight's still..
