"Are you? Out there in listener land, we appreciate your finding a little podcasts him downloading it, and putting us in your ear, buds or streaming eater, or however you're ingesting this week's episode. We we humbly when you're general direction and. Two of the most fun things that we like to sort of circle around this little podcast that is focused on what used to be professional sports is the sport basketball. We love the hoops for sure and the great city of Pittsburgh and this is the The opportunity to kind of combine the two. It's Kinda like chocolate and peanut butter coming together in the old research peanut Butter Cup. As we talk this week with our pal. Stephen, Nesbitt we talk about Pittsburgh and basketball seemingly long stretch. I guess terms of sort of. You know thinking about professional basketball and Pittsburgh history that is is real, but very tattered an oftentimes. Not only misunderstood just plain old forgotten, and you heard in that little clip there I think people in particular. Forget that in nineteen, sixty eight, the Pittsburgh pipers of the first year. American Basketball Association the Old Aba Red White and blue that. Where the champions, the first champions of this challenger League to the dominant NBA and we've talked a lot about the ABA. In previous episodes, but we really haven't delved into the pipers, or was it the Minnesota pipers, or was it the Pittsburgh pipers, or was it the Pittsburgh condors well. It's yes to all of those things at a checkered history it was. But you could do no better. Maybe, not at the gate as much, but certainly on the court. Then what the pipers Pittsburgh where able to do in the very first season of the ABA and that was when it all in this brand, new challenger thing called the. Basketball Association but as well here in our conversation with Stephen. That's but in just a few moments. it was the best of times arguably, and the the worst of time. I guess when it came to. Professional basketball. In Pittsburgh and we get into. A deep history I think frankly a A. A wallpapered over a just a Plano forgotten history of basketball in the steel city. I you know. When the pipers left, and then came back, and then they changed their name to the condors, and then sort of folded even before the ABA did. In Nineteen, seventy, two, the condors, going away, and by the way they defeated the New Orleans buccaneers. In that nineteen, Sixty, eight, original final in that clip by the way that you heard. The voices really familiar, and I tried my darndest to figure out who that voice was I'll put it out there to our audience if if that those dulcet tones are are. If you can remember who that is, we certainly would love to know. It's kind of on the tip of her tongue, but I i. don't have a real easy way to. Determine who that voice was, it sounds familiar. But that was from the official. And there was such a thing sort of an ABA films sort of an NFL films knockoff I guess presentation of the championship game. And I'm sure there's other clips and films out there from the Aba. We'd love to find those, but before the Aba came to town in Nineteen, sixty seven for its first. Season in Pittsburgh as well as league itself. Pittsburgh was actually a fairly vibrant basketball culture. You could make the argument still is would pet and The surrounding area for sure, but you go all the way back. We talked a few episodes ago about the The black fives era of basketball and Pittsburgh was pretty much the center attention as we got into our conversation about Cumberland Posey. Just a few weeks back the MONTICELLO team that was sort of. In the Pittsburgh area, the low wendy big five that Posey was part of an owned for a while. was domiciled in Pittsburgh and in the early in the arts all the way up to nineteen, thirteen and nineteen, fifteen, these were championship sides in the black fives play You could make the argument that the during those. Those that decade, or so the mid mid odds to the sort of mid teens. Pittsburgh was probably maybe the the basketball center of the world at least in the United States, and it's also very interesting to you know that. The pipers were one of the founding franchises in the when it started up that actually fulfilled a kind of a a a theme that Pittsburgh seemed to embody every time, a new basketball league or a professional league was set the Pittsburgh Pirates Of the National Basketball League were there at the beginning the Pittsburgh raiders when the NBA was sort of reconstituting. Pittsburgh has was one of the founding members of the basketball. Association of America which then folded into and records? Wise is now fully incorporated into the NBA the Pittsburgh Ironman. They only played one season that that being forty seven to forty eight, and then the ranch, the Pittsburgh Renaissance as they were officially known. Played in this thing that we also talked about way back when. We talked about Abe Sapper Stein and his American Basketball League. A pioneer at that a year and a half long or so. That was from sixty one until that league's demise in the kind of the middle to near the end of the nineteen, sixty, three, sixty, two sixty three season. The Pittsburgh Rennes or renaissance, so all of those teams including as well the pipers right? We're all part of starting professional leagues and Pittsburgh was I frankly it seemed to be like everybody shortlist of like goal. Okay got to have a franchise in Pittsburgh, but. The demise of the ABA, and certainly the demise of the couple of different incarnations of the Pittsburgh Franchise. They're really kind of set the tone and a sad I guess legacy going forward. for Pro basketball in Pittsburgh, yeah, the CBA came once or twice. There's sort of the the ragtag sort of successor to the ABA very very minor league at that, not even that not even pro semi pro at best. But Pittsburgh and basketball is sort of a hidden gem, and you wonder as we get into our conversation with Stephen. Again just a few moments. Perhaps the G. League could come a call and again. Could Pittsburgh support if not an NBA franchise. What about a G. League? Now sort of fully embraced into and funded by the NBA certainly possible, but I think it's also. A little sort of wistful. into this as well that perhaps the biggest legacy that most people most But newcomers to the scene. Might ascribe to a Pittsburgh and basketball when those things are put together in the same sentence. Is the movie from Nineteen, seventy nine. The fish that say Pittsburgh. Yes, we indeed get into that. Because that's you know it's a little pop culture there, but it also speaks to I guess sort of the the DNA of basketball in Pittsburgh and the premise for a very silly, but a highly enjoyable film. That Pittsburgh and basketball could succeed together as a professional endeavor We get into all of that. We shake vigorously and have a fun filled chat with our guests this week, Stephen Nest, but he the author of a very awesome article writes a ton of stuff for the athletic.

In Black America: Spencer Haywood

"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A.

Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites

"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the

But because they had rules about how much college you had to have hell long after college you could enter the NBA he couldn't. So he actually sued the NBA when all the way to the United States Supreme court. They allowed him to play in the NBA which created the pathway for everyone from Michael Jordan to Magic Johnson. Lebron James to get in early into the NBA without finishing college. And it was a landmark decision, so and you know, I've done I did a story about a all cast of I recall big Sonia.
