"The problem with the vacation now is that when you get your big family together it seems like a great idea and then you're with them for a week and by the end of the week you go okay never gonna call on a family vacation to get out but you're probably right you go to some tropical island where there's happy hours at like eleven AM in the morning and then happy hours at five in the afternoon you get drunk eat some good food and you have some fun with your loved ones right that's the way you got to do it because you know cars come and go the the those that family time not to get all lovey dovey and bush's is very valuable you know you can replace a car you can't replace family members so yeah I I fry probably go with the family vacation trip some tropical resorts and some all inclusive islands and and basically create your own bubble down there not only as good as I I've I hope we both to get to this point winning having a midlife crisis to the car actually like fix it does actually feel better after glasses to days like I think a word a midlife crisis what were to become your car's not gonna fix that so I think it it helps for about two months and you're driving around in your sports car sat on the man like this is incredible and then after two months maybe even less than that doesn't reality the things that are annoying you don't you have to eventually address that so yeah I think it's a a short fix it is that car but I probably got the seven day family vacation for the fiftieth birthday anyway so let me get to the next stock up and that is going to be the U. S. open they're going to have the U. S. open reports it is not going to be fans there but at least tennis fans to have that fixes a fortune there will be fans of the building but Hey we're operating in a in a different time right now with the corona virus the US open one of my favorite sporting events of the year always love to go on fortune will be able to go but at least we'll be able to watch it on a little television on so a stock up that will still have the U.

"And Roy of course has been a lawyer. He was the former president of the Oakland A.'s when his family own that team and now teaches law and sports at UC. Berkeley and Roy. Baseball note to start this thing off. Mlb and the MLB players association are exploring various plans to hold as long as season is possible on among them as a plan that would drop each team into one of three hubs Arizona Florida or Texas and the three division ten team plan would have teams play only within their division a concept gaining support among owners and executives and it would abolish the traditional American and National Leagues and realigned the divisions based on geography. I thought about it for just a second and then I smiled and I said you know. Maybe this isn't such a bad idea. Now you're a baseball guy so you know the inner workings of the sport A little bit better than I do but tell me what your reaction was to this story. I agree I wanna be kind of glass. Half full Attitude this thing I mean if we can get baseball back and it's something for people to watch That's all a positive What worries me is playing in the summer in Arizona and Florida Arizona. You know it can be up in Phoenix in a parameter hundred and five hundred and ten degrees and so I don't know how that's GonNa work. Also the players would be isolated from their families. If you live if you play for the Detroit Tigers. Your family's in Detroit I presume. That's not so great but You know I trust that. The Players Association work crews these things with the owners if they can figure out a way to do it. I'm all for it. I don't know how good Revenues will be broadcast obviously won't be revenues from Fan Attendance so. We'll see but let's be positive. Is this season for all sports. You think no matter whether it's college or professional sports that you just tinker with a lot of different things that you almost right off the season. Let's see what works. What doesn't what we can use out of this season to apply to next season. I'm beginning to get that feeling. Do you get the same thing. Yeah well particularly with baseball where they could tinker for example with the electronic strike zone and that would actually be helpful to the plate umpire. They can tinker with some of the other rule changes. They're thinking about as well but I don't know you know you gotTa Taste Sport by sport. I don't know what the NBA would do differently I know sure what the NFL would do differently. But Baseball is definitely right. For some of the experiments they have going on in the Minor Leagues. Right now that Electric strikes on being the most prominent. We've talked about this before. Yeah we've talked about this a little bit before when the NRA. I was taking it up. And they had to put off their conference meeting And will vote on it a little bit later on in the year and that is college. Athletes may be able to begin cashing in on their name. Image and likeness. Soon a significant development occurred on Tuesday as the NC double a board of governors supported proposed rule changes from a working group to allow athletes to take advantage of these rights in other words. Athletes could soon receive compensation for third party endorsements social media influence personal appearances and their own businesses. All for the first time. Now I like the idea of this but I'm concerned a little bit Roy that this might get out of control real quick and maybe there are some things that can be done under this. That aren't going to be as beneficial either for the athlete or for College Sports. Am I over being overly concerned about this? You think well yes. I do Because look at that you have in College Sports. Now take your shoes. Scandal is one of the most recent ones and the fact that we have players going to college for six months to play basketball and leave and go play in the NBA. So I think the system in college already broke when it comes to Some of the under the table kind of scheme so I I WANNA look at this from a positive point of view there. Lot of athletes in the country who play either in in in schools. That don't have big time. Football programs or play in some of the lesser conferences are playing some of the lesser pop Famous sports who can take advantage of this? Let's say you're great woman. Volleyball player Great Women's softball pitcher or something like that you can get some local endorsements probably and help subsidize your education. You couldn't get before the fact that some recruiting Guy For the World Champion College Football Team is GONNA PERHAPS BEND. The rules strikes me as kind of beside the point because I think those rules already are getting bent so I prefer to look at this. From the point of view of the less famous athletes will have a chance to teach a teacher camp for example teach swimming And advertise the fact that they play they swim for. University of Wyoming. Or whatever the case may be so. I'm looking at it from that side. Not The side of what Michael. I know you're concerned about the future of college. Basketball after the announcement that five star recruits jailing green. He's GonNa Forego. Is College Career? Join A reshaped. Nba Professional Pathway Program. Now the G. League initiative will pay top prospects like green five hundred thousand dollars plus and set them up in a one year development program outside the typical minor league structure as the professional pathways. First participant he is going to be the guy that will be in their first. He's eighteen years old. He chose the G. League over. Scholarship OFFERS FROM AUBURN IN MEMPHIS as well as a contract from the Australian National Basketball League as well. What do you see is the ramifications if any on college basketball with this decision I think in the long run? It's going to be good because right now college basketball. I was basically a free Development Program for the for the NBA. And it's very rare that you will see athletes such as the ones you described play for four years you get some unusual schools like Butler and Gonzaga where they have figured out how to do that but they're the exception rather than the rule. I'd like to see if the kid wants to go to into the pros. Outta high school and he can do it even if that means G. League for year two that's fine. Let them choose that career rather than going to this Faults notion that he's a student athlete for six months at some. Big Time College Basketball Power. So I'm in favor of it I think. Then we'll what we'll do is we'll get college basketball back to the point where you do see this two three four year players who become quite court sadly in quite good players playing the game rather than the one and done just a couple of other guys to feed them all so I think in the long run. It's going to be good for college basketball. I mentioned to you before I have read an awful lot of names of Athletes that are leaving the college ranks and going into the G. League or trying to make it in the NBA. And I'm just wondering if this continues at this particular rate and with this new program and of course there's another program out there on the horizon as well along the same lines as the G. League. I'm concerned that maybe the talent dilution that may not be available then to the college ranks and how fans will respond to that. I think we'd be just fine. Remember this was something that was invented back in in the days of the Roman Empire. This rule didn't until two thousand and five and Lebron James said for example came right out of high school. We seem to have survived. All of that college program seem to be doing fine so I think that we just go back to the way used to be and if if NBA teams WanNa take a risk on a high school player and draft them. Then fine let them use their first or second round pick that way. I think I think the talent market and the and the general pressure on the NBA draft the best possible player. They can is GONNA be a sufficient guard rail. I think college basketball will survive all of this quite well. We only have a minute left but one of the things I like about this. Nba Program the primary focus of the program will be to prepare players for life in the NBA. And I think that that's an important thing for them to do. That's a huge thing. Because you know they come in they. If your first round pick you get seven million dollars a year roughly for four years and unfortunately some of these players. Not all develop a lifestyle. That's based on seven million dollars. A year of annual income. The problem is that goes away after four years and they find themselves trying to figure out how they're going to afford all of these luxuries that they really didn't realize they couldn't afford so I think preparing them for the financial future is one of the critical things the NBA should be doing okay. I appreciate it enjoy the weekend. My friend and we'll talk to you next week. Find something you can do other than sports. 'cause we're both having to deal with that? I'll do my best. Okay Right Roy. Eisenhart with us as he is each week very interesting insights on what the segment we call inside angle. He's been a lawyer former president of the Oakland A.'s. When his family owned that team and now he teaches law and sports at UC Berkeley. And if you'd like to ask a question of Roy easy to do email it to me at Ron at sports byline and that's B. Y. L. I. E. Ron it's sports byline dot com when we come back on the other side. Baron Davis is GonNa talk some basketball with us in you on Sports Beila. It has been said that everyone has a book them.

"You recently flew to New Zealand's to write this really interesting profile of RJ Hampton. First of all tough assignment. Yes well last year I went to Maui and so I felt like I should keep my November's in very difficult places to report to this year I pitch the New Zealand. Well played well. Could you just tell us a little bit about. RJ hamptons background. Yeah so I mean. He's a point guard really by nature feature. He's got good vision on the court after wants to lob back door Ashley with the redirect at the apex played from Upton as a long lanky guard who was a star at little elm high school outside of Dallas. He's a good decision maker. He's confident you know. He's Kinda skinny but that too it will change. He's only eighteen when you talk to scouts. They're thinking about not what he looks like right now but who he can be in three years you take his skill set and marry the body that's has NBA weight training. And you got a pretty good player. I mean he's definitely a very certain I would think first undrafted so in Highschool RJ was being recruited by lots of top college teams and he probably could have gone to any school he wanted but he and his family made a pretty bold decision. You chose the New Zealand breakers of the Australian National Basketball League. Why did you do that? I just felt like At this point and My growing development the basketball player I felt like I was ready for the next level. And take my my town's too Professionally so he will tell you that he never dreamed of being a college basketball player. He dreamed of being a pro. So why take the step for what is essentially a a handful of months because with the NBA age limit. Basically good towns at high school players. Go to college for a year and then they enter their names into the NBA draft in June. And that's that's the end of that. So his rationale was will. Why bother doing that if I really have no interest in it financially obviously it was much better? You don't get paid to go play in college. Needless needless to say you can get quite a bit of money and he did through the New Zealand breakers so it was a very calculated business decision made made by a family fully aware of gun officials and the risks of all of it. A lot of people don't associate Australia or New Zealand with professional basketball. So how did he end up there. And what is the League Lake in New Zealand. The the Australian basketball is sort of. They're really trying to elevate themselves as an attractive place for American athletes to play because English speaking countries. It's very competitive. They are paid on time. You hear horror stories all the time about people going overseas to play basketball professionally and the leagues are not run properly from a business standpoint. They do not get their paychecks tax when they're supposed to housing arrangements are disastrous. You Know New Zealand Australia. These places that are very familiar in terms of language and the culture. They're very comfortable even even though they're literally on the other side of the world and so you know the basketball league there is trying to raise its profile and the League is pretty good. How much money is he making? They're both from in salary and endorsement deals. They're a little sketchy about giving you full details about all of that because that's just how they wanNA roll right now. But mid six figures is a number I was given mid six figures meaning like around. Five hundred thousand. Yeah and again. He's living in a great place. The team helps take care of their housing. They don't really have a lot of expenses to incur. So you know mid six figures if you're eighty nine year old would be college freshman isn't bad. Yes certainly a lot different than then what he would be making a few had gone to Kansas or any of the other schools that were recruiting of exactly as the NCAA goes through a lot of issues with pain athletes and in dragging their feet on these issues. I think you're GONNA see other kids saying hang on a second. That's a lot more money than zero and one of the interesting things about RJ RJ. Situation is it isn't like his parents shipped him off to go fend for himself in this overseas league for year like the parents moved with him the whole family family uprooted and moved to New Zealand. Together tell me a little bit about his parents. Rod and Marketa may decided that they weren't going to send rightly so I would say as as a mom there. Eighteen year old to a foreign country to fend for himself so they chose as a family. This would be a family decision. They would move. Rj has an eleven year. Old Brother. He is there as well being home schooled by his mother terms of personalities. You know I would say rod is. The showman was more for people familiar with Lavar Ball. Who Lamelo Ball and Liangelo ball and Lonzo ball who sort of got a lot of attention for negative? Give behavior in your prime. You said you could beat Michael Jordan one. You know. I'm undefeated one on one. I'll never lose one on g ever played Michael Jordan if he played me cry Arado Keys Lavar except he's not nearly as much of a jerk that he's much more likable version of that. If that makes sense he's much more pleasant and I think well well intended. Our goal is to get a hit on June. Twenty Two thousand twenty. That's our ingle. That's and that's really his. We're going to support in any way we can kita. Rj Mom is much more of the level headed. This is an opposites attract relationship. It would seem to me. She is very much which grounded in everything. She talks frequently about why they made this decision educated. So that's what they don't understand. What all of you don't want him to get an education not about getting education? This is a valid. He didn't want take basketball born. Been Okay funk you know what I'm saying so and understands the risks risks understands. She's putting her kid up for a lot of skepticism. A lot of criticism and is uncomfortable about some of it. She told me a story about her. Mother was in a grocery store back in Dallas and ran into a family friend and the woman said. Why didn't you just send that boy to college? As if they were kind of using their son and that really upset her Chris that thought how she sees this she sees opportunity for rj to be better at his chosen profession. Yeah it's it's hard to imagine parents wanting this for their our kid. I mean what what I don't want their kid to go off and get a college education in a college degree. Yeah I think though you know I think if you sit back and you look at it from a very. I don't know cynical but honest way of looking at things. He wasn't going to graduate college. He was going to go for for a full semester in the fall and in June he would be drafted so at most in an ideal situation. What are we looking at twenty four thirty credits that he would have towards his college degree now? I would argue that there is more to the college experience and going to class in terms of socialization and being an eighteen year old. But that's my opinion you know that it doesn't have to be everybody's and you know they're obviously advantages to being there from a basketball and from a financial standpoint but you know at the same time this is an eighteen year old kids judge. What's his life like they're like did he seem happy to you? Does he have a social life. The friends his teammates as he said sort of like kind of dismissively like jokingly together they all have like wives at best he could be a babysitter. You know I mean. They don't have a lot in common. They're all grown men with wives and families Elise and they go home and they do their thing so you know he plays xbox he plays a lot of fortnight. He watches a lot of Netflix. Even done anything fine. That's the first thing discovered so you need to discuss possible TV. Douglas was watching that. Do Riverdale my God in eighteen year you are my daughter. He faced times his friends. Religiously say he is definitely homesick. And and you know I think we often define homesick being family sick. Like you miss your family when you're homesick. He's actually physically home sick like home. I miss my bed I miss chipotle way I miss my friend. Yeah and were there any moments where it really hit you that. Hey this guy's just a kid tons. I mean you know tons like you know I I have one at him. I have an eighteen year old. So yeah I mean like you lucky scrolling through his phone. He's talking about Billy Islands and his dad's like joking that he and billy is your buddies and he's getting embarrassed because he doesn't want people to think the bill is like his friend or girlfriend. Or what have you go through the door coming up. What have you? Billy is sending care packages to your son. Is this your teeth. I mean He. He missed his truck truck bed. I miss my bed. I miss my truck so much. There's another very well known young basketball. Ask Ball player who's also playing in New Zealand. Lamelo ball bolts thought about jacking. It up now does with great success. Oh how his his experience variance spent similar to or different than RJ hamptons. Well first of all how Lamelo ball got there versus how. Rj Hampton got. There obviously two completely different paths bats. I mean Lamelo Ball's father as Lavar sort of marketed. His Boys how God at the age of I don't even know what fourteen fifteen sixteen any Lamelo was playing Lithuania at the age of sixteen so totally different experience. He was never going to be eligible playing college ball. Just based on all of that so lamelo situation. He's in Australia in terms of the basketball over there. He's with a team outside of Sydney and they are not as talented. Ah as RJ's team so basketball wise Lamelo is sort of got more free reign to just go and shoot and do what you need to do. And kind of be the show in the Star Star. It's similar in different. I would say all at the same time and it was interesting to watch them interact after they played one another. They were just kind of teenagers chatting in this really bizarre world. They've chosen is this becoming more of a trend now. Dana high school players opting to go play professionally overseas instead of going to college. Not yet I mean the guys is who did it before. Rj Brandon Jennings Terrence Ferguson Emmanuel Moody. They had eligibility issues and didn't really have a lot of choice. But there certainly is a sense this especially among NBA people that if this goes well this could become if not a trend. Certainly more an option for small select group of people who are willing to do it.

Lamelo didn't have a whole lot of options going to college was not an option because of the box that his dad bought him into skill. So that wasn't an option that we've seen this before Brandon Jennings was the number one high school recruit, he went overseas. He come back into two thousand nine draft. He's ten big Emmanuel moody you the second prospect outta high school. He went to China. The seven the pick in the draft. So this is not unprecedented. He's going to have to improve a lot. It's just hard skip outta sight, outta mind. They're going to be college players that's going to get a more of an in depth. Look, I hope it works out, well for him, but I don't care what if dad says this is not how dare drew up skip. If dad made some decisions that put his son in this predicament, and this is the avenue. This is the, the road that they gotta travel down in order to get to their final destination, where it's a long road, it is a long hard road. Lithuanian. Now australia. Right. Lavar has always told me is youngest would be his best. So launch those going to be in the hall of fame. I guess this kids are going to be the goat.

"We have a ton to do. Meanwhile, let's get up and go with a bunch of. Notes round the NBA the pelicans picked up the team option on Alvin gentry's contract for next season. Tim, how do you see the new editions fitting into what Alvin gentry likes to do Mike? I think this is a really great move from the war liens now. They they're gonna wanna play uptempo facets Alvin gentry's MO goal time. And this team is frankly going to be one of those teams the lead watch you know with a bunch of young athletes. And obviously the addition design Williams on Thursday night with all the good stuff top stuff that happened there. It's good to see a good guy get a chance to coach under real circumstances there. Meanwhile get up and go to lamelo ball who when asked yesterday on the jump on ESPN he's going to play in the Australian National Basketball league next year. Another player RJ Hampton made that announcement on our show recently DJ, do you see more prospects going overseas rather than college? I think so until the NBA change the rule to where a kid can go from high school back to the NBA after his high school graduation. So look to see this trend. That's continue to I think that these guys will be an interesting test case this goes, well then maybe. It'd be gets others doing it if not then maybe it adds a few more questions. Meanwhile, we get up and go north of the border Toronto. They celebrated it look at that it's just a never ending sea of red an estimated million and a half hands hacking downtown Toronto for the raptors championship parade choline company, having a great time.

"Now in the NFL, I wanna ask him who, of course, yesterday and talking to Dan, or lathi ano-, of course Dan had already reached out to Josh because they kind of operated quarterback club so who is Josh passed the baton right now. Well we we'll do this little later. We have a list of all the all the backup quarterbacks in the NFL in which there's to look at a backup, right? Which one is the best one come in and play if you need him. Right. And which one is the best in the room guy training, the young guy. Who still got the training wheels. It's the ultimate insurance policy, you're gonna pay for them, but you never wanna use it is the weirdest position all sports. You wanna make sure you are covered and you got someone. And you hope you never have never stepped off the sideline. We've got some basketball news. Also. The pelicans were the only ones that we're trying to figure out how to deal with the ball family. No lamelo ball, has joined the ele- Warrick hawks of the Australian Illawarra did it of the Australian National Basketball league. So they now get to figure out how to deal with lavar, but lamelo is headed there. He played. Let's remember in Lithuanian twenty eight team for year unlikely he could've played in college under the eligibility rules, but he is still a top prospect for next year's draft. And listen. We, we have talked about, you know, lavar and played some of the sound yesterday, just we everybody knows our, our feelings, or at least try yours. A little different, but about lavar, but this has nothing to do with the kids. I wish nothing but success for those kids and men. I remember Mela when we used to see him, you know, in high school before the whole thing started going to Lithuanian then last year play what was inspires I in Ohio, which was a prep school where he played he's like six six six seven out great ball handler, and, and good enough. It would seem at this point to be a lottery. Pick you ought to be the number one pick in the draft next year. We'll see as far as this classes, concern of guys would be going to college of which he is not. He was ranked twenty first in ESPN's class of one hundred RJ Hampton who's going to play for the New Zealand breakers in the same league as ball in the NBL. He was ranked the number five prospects. So you're getting a couple of guys going there, and then we'll see what happens with the draft, but six six six seven ball handler. Heck of a player no doubt about it. And he's going to get some good tests in that because one of the knocks on is the physicality, we talk about with. Actually Lonzo ball as well and going and play where he's going to play that certainly gonna get tested. It'll be very interesting, if any of these guys are able to improve their stock because I saw someone brought this up the other day of which college programs, produced the best pros. And so made the compelling point that couch programs, don't produce pros. You're giving a commodity that in most cases is pretty pro ready and you're holding it over. And in some cases, we see improvement guy like Zion, definitely got a bump from his time at zoo. Duke in a number of ways can these leagues overseas be just as viable in holding over these commodities, and maybe helping guys improve certain aspects of their game enough to show. All right. This is a good model more guys can do this and explore the option of it's right for them. What you said, Zion got a bump from Duke, Duke also got a major. Yes. I'm playing two years. John moran. Yep. Exactly John merinbloom, a little bit of a different category. I think when we look at the guys that will be affected when the one in done rule is gone. Known commodities going. I get your point. Exact John Moran is a great example of some guys do absolutely need that time to develop. And again, of course the NBA draft is Thursday night. So we'll see. It's, it's expected that those two jumper, it will go one and two and are Barrett will follow at number three. So we go from basketball to baseball, and as we said, we were going to be were delighted to be joined now by our ESPN, insider BUSTER, only a host of the baseball podcast. Again, tonight's guest is Yankees. GM Brian Cashman BUSTER good time to have him on as Edwin and Cottam SEO and makes his debut. But honestly, the best thing about the game last night was what we saw from Masahiro Tanaka, right? Nine innings to hits a complete game shutout. Yeah. And that's gonna be the big question for the Yankees going forward. I mean they're not other not many places that lineup where you're going to be finding upgrades between now and the trade deadline, but the focus for the Yankees for Brian Cashman is going to be starting pitching. I'm sure that they'll be having conversations continue conversation with the giants about Madison Bumgarner. I think it's more likely they'll focus on Marcus Stroman. The Toronto Blue Jays, who's a, a big ground balls. Strikeout guy, you know, local kid. He's pitching the American League before he's under control through two thousand twenty but yeah, the Yankees still have worked to do with their rotation. Even in the aftermath of that great outing by Tanaka last night. And again, I have to apologize. I broke one of my own rules. I said, complete game shutout which is so stupid by definition, complete. It's funny. You mentioned that could last night. I send out a tweet saying, complete game shutout because this era people like what complete game what? Want to reinforce the idea that, that, you know, that, that phrase is redundant. So let's change it from complete game to getting in a game. And when will Stanton and judge be back in games, then it's going to be back tonight and the Yankees line of weather permitting. It's terrible down here north of New York City. So we'll see if the gate they get the game tonight and then Aaron judge maybe later in the week. So it that point, then you really do have, you know that murders row that it looks like they're gonna have this unbelievable collection of power hitters that Edwin Encarnacion leading the American League in home runs joined the, the guy who second is Gary Sanchez now is new teammate. And then you get stand back tonight. You get judge back later in the week, they are going to absolutely obliterate, mediocre pitching and bad teams. And there's no question that, you know, the addition event will probably improve their chances. Is to win the American League east. I think the big question everyone's going to have is with the Yankees lineup. So right handed with so many strikeouts. When you face a leap pitching in October, you know, the Justin Verlander Garrett Kohl's Charlie Morton to the raise, if that's who they face..

"Point six million dollars in that event biggest waves as for million dollars. Miner say he's not planning on waiving that so now they only have twenty three million dollars. Right. That's nowhere near with you need to sign one of the players out there on the free agent market. There's gonna command MAC salary. Now, if they convinced or Kaleida come for less than max money. Maybe even Jimmy Butler, convince him to come for less than max, then that's a discussion. But I don't see any of those players for less than the maximum. There's so much. Any other teams that will be offered them Amax our there is no way. Awas unless Koiwa has we keep hearing the clippers and if he just wants to go play for the clippers. Now again the two is a two time champ. He's a finals MVP defensive player. I mean, the guy has got checked all these boxes that we've talked about. So if he wants to go play somewhere like the clippers where he says, this is where I want to be, and they don't have the money, maybe he would take less to go do that. Because money's not a worry for the guy that's where he wants to play but to sit there and say he may go to other places and take less money to go there. I wouldn't buy that at all. I'm thinking all he's going to do that. We've been giving no indication. And so I, I don't know it would take a lot as Damon Jones said, a lot has to happen, like just assuming that and kind of make throwaway comment is a little ridiculous. We've never gotten any indication quite frankly, I thought last summer, we got indication the other way does not have a lot of interest in playing with Brian James. So I'm not overly inclined to believe I mean, Damon Jones that we have to take them into. Word on that. But I just don't see that as a positive thing about it is we don't know what motivates him. We don't know. Is it home? Is it with the clippers? Is there a league MVP that motivates him? Right. Because he hasn't won that correct? That, that's one of the big things that the probably the only big thing not in his career. Oh, I if I have no idea now, this is all we can do speculate, as we don't get anything from coli. So if that is a goal is not going to the Lakers. Lebron on that team, Anthony Davis is that there's no shot going into the clippers would make a lot of sense and we already here that because that would be home for him. I get personal Lakers flame, the same place. But if that is, and I don't know if it is. But if that's part of the boxy wants checked have a way better chance of doing it as a star with the clippers than with three stars with the Lakers, I just like the overwhelming amount of this time. We've been hearing the clippers, so we're there smoke there's fire like if we've been hearing, this for long enough consistently enough. I'd have to imagine there's the most truth to that portion of things in here. Absolutely. And we've talked a lot about what may or may not happen, and that is proof. Why collide Lakers is unlikely? Proof is brought to you by Pennzoil. The first synthetic motor oil made from natural gas. The proof is in the Pennzoil. So if not Koiwa, the Lakers, which we all agree seems like what happens, I guess. Nothing would surprise us. But listen, I guess we have to say this turned down max dollar to, to not stay in San Antonio. So his motivation on many levels is unknown. Maybe. I will push back and say his motivation was pretty clear getting out of San. I get what we're talking specifically. Ramona says that money is not what money is not his thing, right? If he wanted money he would've found a way to make a working San Antonio. That's all I'm saying. If money was his overriding motivation. There's clearly he would have made the most money by staying San Antonio. He would've put again, I feel like the need to protect his body's supersedes. What would have happened there financially? So I, I will dispute that, but I will agree that, yes, we don't know him enough to not to spend money. We see some star players do that before it certainly wouldn't be out of the ordinary. So what are the Lakers going to be able to build around Anthony Davis and LeBron? Once the deal can be made official, July six. Here's our NBA front office inside of Bobby marks. You look at that roster bear. It is empty you got nine or ten spot? I think you're looking at a guys like will probably cost you ten to twelve million dollars. I think Jay writes in that same number is player like their house. In Trevor REEs. I don't think Billy Donovan in their price range. If you're looking at a second player, I think he's going to cost you probably fifteen to seventeen million. I don't think get a combination of like Patrick Beverley Nicole near that might be a little bit too expensive for you. So if all those guys are too expensive, who you getting? Listen. I mean those those are the two expensive guys if again, if somebody's going to be willing to take less money. That's exactly. And we have seen players do that before. So I guess it wouldn't be shocking, if they want to do it again. Exactly. So we'll see what happens with that going forward. And we go for by saying Hello to Jason Fitz to tell us what's going on in the what's trending category. Morning, gentlemen. Good night. Wrong show wrong. So that's I which by the way, you can here on ESPN radio from five to six five six AM eastern, Kentucky. Five to six PM, but you won't be on. Well, that's fair are Wolfpack here. ESPN is growing by one and fell veteran quarterback, Josh mccown, retires from the NFL and joins ESPN is an analyst old though. I mean all forty don't, don't do not destroy go. We look, I'm forty. I got nothing is this I've and Drago. There's never been a better movie d'appel gang athlete than Josh mccown, Ivan Drago. Don't add me at it. Nobody comes close that being said, welcome to the phones, actually. Right. He'll join us, by the way in about two hours before to talking to Josh mccown. I'm looking forward to seeing him in Dan, or Dan, Orlovsky have a backup quarterback hair off right now. We get blonde brunette. So everyone kinda gets their flavor that they liked the guys solid had a lot of solid head of lettuce and McDonough mccown also known for just being such a great in the locker guy kinda coach in that quarterback room. And the last player by the way from what the two thousand and two thousand and two wouldn't be the last player from the two. Thousand to draft because. Oh, yeah. Was the last player to two thousand Tom Brady two thousand one drew Brees two thousand three Terrell. Suggs, those are the ones we have left. So he was gonna last. A few players still left from the early two thousand not one of them ten years from now. They'll be saying, hey, Tom Brady last player for the two thousand I'll. He did play for eighteen eighteen over seventeen years, most notably. Of course, my beloved writers. A little bit. NBA news. Lamelo ball. Lamelo ball, has joined the I won't even try and say the hawks of the Australian National Basketball league announced on ESPN the jump on Monday. Remember ball played for a year. And Lithuanian twenty eighteen not likely he played in college eligibility rules. This is what our, our own Mike Schmitz had to say about his draft prospects. There's a lottery tallies every bit of six foot seven. His frame is developing. He has the ball on a string a little more more shifting than Lonzo was, but he has the same type of basketball IQ in terms of his passing feel, but there's still some major questions about just his ability to handle adversity his ability to play in structure, because that's something he's never done really at any level. So I think he's going to be tested in Australia with the physicality with having to defend with taking the right shots. But from a talent perspective he deserves to be in the lottery. There's no question Mike another player decide to. To go the one choice to college. He I heard already paid for the lady. I heard him on the jump and said, you know, college wasn't really wouldn't be able to go to college. I mean, the fight they would had to get to college, this good move again. Yes. RJ Harmon is often. Hampton Hampton, playing New Zealand. Remember Kenyon, Martin's kid, can you Martin junior is gonna play overseas as well. So the flood gates are open because we've seen players through this before, but it was a route for lamelo ball to go. And I didn't think it was that big he spouted up because see an earlier highlight to him. He wasn't that tall. I never remembered him being that. But also most of it was tied to one of the criticism. We heard was is his build. He's the guy that you see overly physical. So it's an interesting mix because what we hear about the NBA very physical league Illawarra, teeny played with RJ Hamptons going to play for the breakers. They finished tied for about six in that league. So it'll be an interest. Fit. But hearing that this is a guy that supposed to be a lottery, pick and knowing that RJ Hampton was number five prospect class like how these guys develop and come back over is an interesting litmus test for we know other guys have done it in the past. But now it seems like a much more viable option as we go forward for things like this in the league. Absolutely. And we will get caught up on some.

"It's forty eight hour back senior NBA writer for Bleacher report. Thank you for joining us. I am very pleased to be joined in studio today by RJ Hampton. You should know his name by now, folks, easy, five star basketball, recruit, number five in ESPN, one hundred class of twenty nineteen draft class of twenty twenty but you will not be seeing him this fall playing for Memphis or Kansas or Texas Tech, which were his finalists before he decided to go his own route, and that route is going to take him halfway around the world to the New Zealand breakers in the Australian National Basketball league. This is a ground-breaking move folks of very rare move for a player of his caliber and one who does not have to do this. He's got the grades. He's got the SAT's. He's a really bright kid. He could be going to any of the great schools in the US to start his or to, to pursue a college career before going into the draft. But he made a different kind of choice. He. Believes that the best way to the NBA the best path is distraught off as a professional immediately. So he's going to New Zealand with his entire family and he's gonna play for the New Zealand breakers, a team that's part owned by former NBA all star Shawn Marion, and it's a fascinating choice. We've seen a few other guys, do this usually under duress where their grades or something else didn't work out. So we saw Brandon Jennings go to Italy back in two thousand nine and Emmanuel moody go to China in two thousand fourteen this is a little different in the Australian basketball league is also made a very big push to get guys who don't want to go to college..

And I certainly believe that sues a important part of the defense but not at the number economically that the Rams paid him a year ago. I, I don't know exactly what he got from Tampa, Tampa Bay financially but it certainly was rewarding. I'm assuming about nine mill nine point three. Okay. So we got fourteen last year. Yeah. So, okay. So you got ten million dollars from the ramp Bay Buccaneers you take that ten million? You say everything you supposed to say is he bangers is in dominant? Suet difference maker. If you have him, do you have a much better chance of success than if you don't have him at this point in his career? I don't know. I don't know if he's better than Gerald McCoy right now. I don't know. I have no idea if he's better than a German, I think they're probably pretty even. But sometimes when you get to move, you get a reboot. Moving from the ramp to the bucks. All of a sudden he gets ten sacks. It's just a reboot, maybe the style in which Todd Bowles uses him, which is a hell of a difference, a coordinated maybe not good here coach. But a defensive coordinator would a great mind puts him in a different position. Then we'll way Phillips there. Because way Phillips had Aaron Donald it. He had to make sure he can get off and not down consume or at RJ Hampton was the number five prospect in the class of twenty nine thousand nine he decided that he is not going to go to college. But rather, he's gonna go play professional basketball for the New Zealand breakers of the Australian National Basketball league. Here's RJ Hampton explaining his decision. I just think my dream has never been to, to play college basketball. My dream is always debate to get to the next level in the plan, the NBA. So I mean, I think this was the best route for me to live like a pro and play with grown men every day and, and not kind of have to juggle books and basketball and his focus on my mangle RJ Hamptons decision to skip coach basketball, and goes straight to a professional league overseas ticket or shaken take. You know, this is a somewhat of a growing trend every single year, we get one or two players that make this decision that they don't wanna go to college for various reasons, whether it's whether it's because he couldn't get into the school academically, whether it's the shoe money is so valuable in because the money that he's making overseas. It'll be a couple of hundred thousand dollars. Right. That, that that's not in comparison to professional sports. That's nothing but his shoe money could eclipse a million dollars a year and time or where the internet. You look at that. And he's not if you told me if you said overseas or Duke overseas are Kentucky. Kansas, Kentucky Duke more. So because I'm talking about the educational when, when you have a Duke, blue devil, next to you in your name is something different Michigan. It's, it's something different in the he may not value that part of it. But certain. Only he could have done a one and done type guy..

"But he's the most likeable big hands game can finish great leaper great defender inbetween game if you beat him to the stop bumps you off. And then you add his three point shooting, you know, so, you know, I never get in that who's the best player, you know magic is the best player. You know Michael Jordan was the best player LeBron but it's that same group coup. Why is the most like Jordan? We've seen according to Doc Rivers, take shake it. I'm gonna take it because. I'm gonna take it because if I was the head coach, general manager, president of the clippers in free agency was coming up and I was looking for a player that could give me over the home. I certainly would compare him new Michael Jordan alone. With Oscar Robertson manage a magic in there. Gee, this a little bit of Jesus. He's better than Kevin Durant. When I know I'm not gonna probably get Kevin Durant. He's better than the Broncos. There's a chance, I'm not going to get LeBron. I could still still Kevin Durant. But of course, he's gonna say all those things will look if you look at Coalisland and his game, you could compare it to a, the great ones, you certainly can Michael Jordan had snap crackle pop. He had a lot of sizzle any at a circle. We all tried to emulate, his walk. We all tried to have a press conference in liquor lips that was just part of that was am I right? Yeah.

"All this stuff spills, we'll play over this about how terrible he was to other people, which he denies all deny course, there's a lot of people think I'm a terrible human being. And I know I'm great person. That's my friends anywhere. Anyone staying with basketball, RJ Hampton is going to skip going to college and going to play with New Zealand breakers of the AM, B L. That would be the Australian National Basketball league. He's playing for a New Zealand team, but I don't think the games are in New Zealand. I think they're all in all. Yes, North Korea has good basketball, they do have good basketball, this was announced yesterday on ESPN, and it elicited applause from Jay Williams and Jalen rose applause from them. I took note of that. I think this is a one day story. I think it's a complete non event, because I think that in a very short time, Adam silver, who has already said the one in done is a stupid rule to complete restraint of trade awful ruled that people like this, this, the amount of people in that population this going to go to the NBA, you know, if he wants to go make money in Australia. Good for him the level of Australian basketball's probably every bit as good as college basketball in America. But I don't think this is the harbinger of anything to come. This is happened before other people have done this Emmanuel moody did this, this is the third or fourth guys done this, and it doesn't there's no revolution here. It doesn't happen. You don't say, oh my God. College basketball's going to die and the Australian it is. It is in that he said, I want. Dreamt of playing college basketball want to go to college. Now. What to go? What makes him interesting is that reportedly has something like twelve sixty on his boards, so he could go anywhere. And fine. But again, my position is let's not think that this is going to revolution from breaking. No, it's not. To baseball to baseball, Mr.. Tony the Los Angeles angels of Anaheim beat the Oakland. I totally to store, and nobody cares about this story in the east. Right. Nobody cares at all that, that Shohei Otani who can only hit this year because he's he can't throw because he had Tommy, John surgery, had a hit that beat Oakland. The only reason I wanted to bring it up was a Oakland had won ten straight, and I defy most people living, east of the Mississippi to name three people on the Oakland Athletics. Can't do it. Nobody knows who they Reggie Jackson and every year, Oakland go every year in the summer, Oakland has a stretch where they go like twenty two and five. Yeah. And then you see them at the top like close to the of the western standings. Right under Houston. And you go, what who are they, they do this every single year? They don't spend any money on any players terrible. Here they go twenty five and they are in the playoff mix. Yeah. Can you name it conversation?

But incognito, that's what the raiders. That's what Davis. What? Yeah, that's the raiders of the court of last resort. Jason. What was the name of the guy who he who he Stanford Stanford?

"It's our Joe's stone crab primetime player of the weekend. I know it's Tuesday but we were off for the holiday yesterday. Should we nominate players real quick? I believe we should like to nominate from the five hundred winner Simon pashmina house. I didn't even know who that was Simon pag. The poll out dueled Rossi. Yes. To the to the finish line. Right. I don't know what that would be. But our guys was in third place. I will nominate quite Leonard forgetting the Toronto Raptors into their first NBA finally at twenty seven points. Seventeen rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocked shots all around amazing game for blogs and excellent nomination. The man who is how I didn't even know there was an NBA basketball can quite good. They rallied from fifteen down. I thought you was going to mention a Kevin na. But that's fun. A wonderful job by. It looked like the wheels are going to come off and Fennell was right there, ready to capitalize. But Kevin, let's go with quiet. Leonard Coalisland investors in warriors. Start the finals in Toronto on Thursday night. No catch every game right here on ESPN. The championship shown any emotion you think still do the same known. He's the most emotionless superstar athlete I've ever seen in my life. Right. I like him. I think it's just the Senator skeptic. I don't know. I like different captain, even though what he did to San Antonio. I thought was a little bit puzzling. It was. I totally agree with teammate, his, I'd have to scratch, my head a little bit. I not saying I was disappointed or anything like that. I just know my disappointed. I think we talked about last year. How is he getting such a pass for that we year ago at this time we were having that conversation? I think that's very legitimate. You just decide to skip out a year doesn't make sense rate franchise in Greek coach. When you see how good he is what he could have done for them last year. I, I don't know. I mean he, he mistrust them that much that he just couldn't play a whole season. And maybe say, hey, this is the it's a cold true business in these organizationally care about these players so good for for taking a stand. I don't know to just quit on the rest of a team. You have teammates. Yeah. I know. That's like intentional. I don't like it. But he intentionally to. It is great. All right. What what's trending Merck gentlemen? Good afternoon. Your co are you? I'm great always. You say gentlemen, say York real quick, trending RJ Hampton is, he's number five prospect, two thousand nineteen class. He will skip college employees overseas for the New Zealand breakers, the Australian National Basketball league, he'll get paid. We'll get paid. We've seen this before with youngsters have academic issues and have an inability to get into college, Brandon Jennings day right over to Europe and they play and then they come back, but this guy's deciding to do it because he just wants to do it. He doesn't want to go to college. Right. You should there's an alternative way. You put a little a few shackles in your pocket, while you're at it. Hey, Jeff, Jeff Goodman. Tweeted that, you know, good for him. He's gonna get paid, but no one's gonna pay attention to them. He's like true. He'd be much better served playing college basketball where he would be showcase showcase. Yes, I can tell you this much. Hey, nobody the people that are going to pay attention to the important people in the porn people are scouts. Can he be? In the top five though, like Hetty gone to Kansas City, whose recruiting them, Kansas, Texas, Tech, and one other. I think those are the two I saw in Memphis Hetty gone to one of those three schools that are pro, you know, going to be in look at Texas Tech is really going to be in the spotlight after what happened this last year. Kansas, and Memphis are big time programs that are in the national spotlight, especially Kansas, had he gone to one of those schools. Would he have done better for his draft stock next year? My guess is yes, it would only help him because it's not the euro league, he's going to be playing, and he's not planning. Israel's going. Australia is a long way to go and scouts will see him. Sure. But I get Jeff Goodman's point like he probably do better for his draft stock next year. But he he's currently sixth pick in the twenty twenty real quick before we break, there's the anti Matt Kuchar story. Let's, let's say we got time, but that's Kevin non. Right. Yeah. Okay. It goes guy, we could save that during the one o'clock because you're got into it with somebody. Anyways, Twitter Vars Jack Jackson notes Sammy very well. I know you do. He was a little out of line. If yes. Probably I simply send him to the simplest of messages. Yeah. We'll talk about it when we come back. We'll talk about that some baseball coming up with cubs and SOX. Jesse?

"Are out of your jacket. What would you take the jacket? You're the best. All right. There you go. George Shaka from windy city will limousine I love George, but I mean, if we're trying to remember Bill Buckner, and we're gonna, we're gonna jump on his worst fat, right? As a covers that were going. And that was bad teams to. Come on. Yeah. He was just ahead of he was. He was Mr. launch angle in the eighties. That's he didn't wanna walk. Want to send it out of the Marta. Hit Danny of another question for us. Well quick. You gotta ask come. All right. RJ RJ Hampton the number five prospect in the class of twenty nine thousand nine college basketball has signed a contract with the news eland breakers of the Australian National Basketball league. He's become the first American to willingly, forgo college to play international hoops shot or no shot Hampton. Just opened the floodgates and the collegiate basketball landscape will forever be chained, no shock because he's not the first Brandon Jennings. Did that decided not to go to air and then getting drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks later but went over to play in Europe. Yeah. No shot. I mean he spurned Kansas. So, I think Danny has malice in his heart for this kid, which is understandable. But I still think the top high school players unless they jump right to the NBA they're going to play at Kansas. Kentucky. Michigan state Duke those programs, eventually speaking quickly, Brandon Jennings. He signed overseas. Because he didn't have academic status to get into school. So actually he is I go over there willingly. Yeah. I think. Manual moody was also under that same category. Yes. Brandon jennings. Moody terrorists. Ferguson. They all signed overseas amid concerns regarding academic status. This guy that I'm talking about RJ Hampton, just choosing to go. He can go to college about that. Thanks. They try not correct me next time Kathy. Go ahead. Right. No. I agree that I agree. I think look, I think going to college here and I know it's going to change. They're going to stay beyond one year. Look what it did design Williamson going to do did nothing. But make him a ton more money and more marketable agreed. So if I, I don't think going overseas will be the way to go. I think caps, right? You'll either go right to the NBA. I'll Kobe and LeBron or you'll go to one of the premier schools and try to build your brand that way. Right. Gotta take a fast time out, Anthony Rizzo next.
