On a roll! Joey Chestnut sets hot dog world record
"You are building your perfect Fourth of July plate and you had two hot dogs on there. And if you throw 72 Mohr On your plate. You've got Joey Chestnut's Joe, just not hot dog eating record. I have goals, I guess to hit now. I don't know if I woke up this morning thinking that I was going to be in the seventies. But if I do consume 70 something hot dogs today, you better believe I will be letting the world know. Absolutely. Will you be a fool? Not to. It is a number and it is an athletic competition. And with that comes the opportunity to wager upon it. Let's bring in Doug Kazarian or ESPN betting expert joining us here on Darien Melon, ESPN radio and Doug, You know what I really admit. I haven't bet on the Nathan's hot dog eating contest before. How many different ways are there to do that today? Well, Randy, you should be embarrassed, but I should also be embarrassed that I can't remember the last July 4th. I have not been on a hot dog eating contest. So here we are. It's a staple in July 4th tradition is Traditional is AH, Apple pie right? There's different sort of thing, though. The female Joey custom if you will, just meaning the dominant force in the women's Circuit is Miki Sudo. She's like a tender, one favorite so minus 1000 chestnuts in the minus 1200 neighborhoods No 1 to 12 and Look they've dominated. But the big variable this year guys is so you can bet each of them to win or notes that would kind of take the field against each one. And then there's also over unders. You kind of mentioned Around 74. So it opened 71 a half was actually bet up a couple dogs. And we're seeing a little bit of under money, depending on the number. You're looking about 73 a half. And 73 is sort of the over under. And look, there's the variable this year of indoors, right? Chestnut has talked about how much you feed off the crowd. But if you remember guys just think about your own eating when you're outside and sweaty and stuff Not that pleasant, but you can probably do more damage indoors. But the hot dog dick holder, so that's the variable as well. So it's really unknown. Something like we've never seen no crowd. Different temperatures indoors, and that's sort of what everyone handicapping as we approach the top of the hour. Dawg, you mentioned this is something that you've done many years now betting on the hot dog eating contest. So my question to you as someone who has never based policed a bet in her life. At what point Do you start to think that Joey Chestnut might be falling off a little bit like he's been doing this for a while? I mean, is it? Is it something that you're just going to keep betting on him until He doesn't read proves you're wrong. Like at What point is he too old to be like? I'm gonna start taking the under on Joey now. Yeah, I know It's a great question because there's a some point he's going to get caught now. Actually, When I lived in Vegas, I covered a major league eating competition between him and Kobayashi. It was sort of the predecessor to test that, and he he talked to me about stuff. Yes, he takes like like what Marathon runners do before the marathon. They take painkillers before you could imagine you just roll out of bed and like Pearl down, trying to pound 72 hot dogs. You There's an art to this right. There's training. You expand your stomach. You talked about the belt of fat very so there's a lot of competition, but at some point your body You know, Father Time is undefeated as we all know from the great Charles Barkley. So at some point, these competitors are going to catch him. Now there is a guy sort of lurking in the neighbourhood. Darren Breeding is supposed to give him a run for his money. This year at some point member Kobayashi was Seemed untouchable and then chestnuts out of standards. They had eaten Maurine the sort of regionals and then they thought he could do it. But you know, there's I like the over if you can get a 72 or so, but the juice is getting up there. I think Minus 1000 on Miki Sudo is stay free money but pretty favorable. This is like she's going for the world record. She's like geared up for this. This is for Brian. This might be the last year chestnut. Just sort of a lock, so to speak, But I won't lay the $12 either. So I think that time has come When you win the money lines get that high. You're not going to make a lot of money laying that kind of lumber.
Tiz The Law Owner Jack Knowlton On Belmont Win
"Will here it is Jack Knowlton visiting with Anthony's to bill on. Red Brand radio. Congratulations on a fantastic win. A lot of people feel like it was seventeen years in the making my friend. Well we finally got our triple. Crown for Sakho Toga for Barclay tag and took us two horses and seventeen years, but from what I understand. It's still kind of fight for Barclay There aren't a lot of trainers at You know is one three legs of the triple crown in recent years. Yeah and you know you guys together. Seventeen years apart, and with New York breads and I know that's the. The mantra over attack a Toga. You guys support that program as well as anyone. Well I was pretty fascinated to learn that it was one hundred thirty eight years since the new. York breaded, won the. Belmont stakes now I know a lot of people are going to say well, then really count you know at you know. It wasn't a mile and a half and Yada, Yada but. In my mind, anybody who watched that race, who questions who would have won that race? It has been a mile and a half. I think the outcome would have been exactly the same as it was at amendment eight. And, Barkley had gone on record is before the race saying you know I would have liked a mile and a half of the source, and he's a horse again. New York Brad and that's what you guys do, you? You've been high on this horse from day one. Well. I watched them train at Saratoga. I mean you're up there and I'd go over at six o'clock in the morning 'cause. That was a time of day that Berkeley landed of track. It was almost darker. She got near the end of the need of what's dark. And not only did he. You know have a good works, and you know work quickly, not crazy fast, but you know good works. But the way he galloped out, I mean they couldn't pull him up. He goes around the second turn. After you know going, pass the finish line and writers just added tremendously difficult time pulling them up junior. Alvarado was riding. Mine is is raised back then, and when I saw that we went into a first range of six and a half furlong maiden mates for New York. Badge I really had a lot of confidence and He's lived up to it so one little bump in a road when he got stuck down inside and the worst part of the race track and Kentucky Jockey Club At. The end of November other than that He really has been flawless. Yeah. That's lobby. Track back in November. He's just been He's been impeccable. The rest of the way the covid nineteen outbreak of course forced post moment of the Kentucky Derby the preakness to. The. Bom obviously the biggest change with the Belmont was not only the two weeks, but the distance. You've mentioned the ASTERISK. We'll get to that in a minute You guys pretty much. And gals I don't want to offend anybody in Saratoga those thirty-five parts of this. Is that accurate? Seven and funny is that I was that six or seventy? You guys and funny side. We had ten ten. Okay, okay only. The same folks lieutenant. And I the only holdovers class. You guys Gus Williams. He passed away several years ago as dead one of our other great partners Dave Man but Ruined I gave remaining to. Stay with it and never in the world expecting that we would get the kind of horse that we've gotten here with the law. And this was an important race for you to win Jack Not that you don't want to win. The Derby again or the preakness again, but the Belmont stakes with your dedication to new. York, Brad's and New York, and let's face it. you know in a game where horses changed hands an awful lot. You and Barclay have been together two decades at this point. This was a very important race for you guys to to tick the box on. It was, and now he's got one more coming up in my hometown Saratoga Springs I've lived thirty five years I know Barkley wants to win it badly as do I and. Really if we can you know, check this box. would include the champagne, which is the the most important two year old race. The Belmont stakes obviously being biggest Belmont. Race and We get the travers at Saratoga. That's quite a triple. And that's pretty remarkable. When you consider you know you started this twenty years ago. As pretty much. Just some friends getting together and buying some horses. We had six guys and Sackett Cyber. I find the eastern end of Lake Ontario I went to high school. We were having our usual. Memorial Day weekend, bearing barbecue, and my wife and I would go up there and visit and I had been in the harness. Business Standard Bread business I guess for about a dozen years and got out. In in ninety four. And somebody up there said well. Why don't we buy a thoroughbred and I said you know figuring I've never gonNA hear anything about it again. I said okay. I said you know, let's each put in five thousand dollars. I knew Tim Kelly at that point who's a trainer and works at is never now. so I got a hold of me and he found this a New York Brad for twenty two thousand dollars. We named him the second sex after the six of us. From Sackett Cyber and came up with the name sack Toga stable after sack I Saratoga and made ourselves Maroon and gray, which are high school college. So. That's how it all started.
"barkley" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Banks And he had worked on legislation a couple of years ago to let felons black felons vote again. And I thought. I was disappointed that we turn to show that we started this relationship over to these idiot foods in jackasses on Morning TV, shows and Internet nothing good happens when you got these foods on one and talk shows, or you turn the world over to the Internet. Because that's where all to lose enthused. Hang out at on Antoinette. Listen drew was insensitive. I think he knows that the way the NFL just to players just like they know drew brees. They know all the good stuff did, but they turned it over the food on Talk TV and Internet, and that's where all the idiots live on those two forms. Charles Barkley with us here on ESPN Radio Charles, one of the interesting things that has happened I'm certain you've noticed. Is College cage really finding their voices and calling out coaches and calling people in charge at their universities or others or even going back fifteen twenty years? How do you feel about college? Kids using their voices the way they've used them here in the last few weeks. Well. I think that's a very slippery slope. WE'RE GONNA get to the point where we let college kids Pale people who they got the vote for. Let's say hypothetically this. I think that I i. don't even know anything about that network but they can't be in the worst and Fox News. which is awful. But. If a coach wanted to vote for trump. Who is not the? It was probably. It's GonNa be hard to find a worst president trump, but some of college coach or somebody wanted to vote a support trump. New. The players had a right to get that coach fired. Did to me a very very slippery slope. I think that what we need to do is like a man. Take a deep breath. I'm not a trump fan. Don't want but if if a CATIS CLOSE WANNA support trump. We're becoming foos. These other food on TV. who were you a liberal conservative? Wait a minute. How do we get to the point where I'll politicians? In both parties suck. Get that out the way I voted democratic my entire life. And I'm starting to wonder like man if I'm like what exactly how they had done for poor black people I mean we're still all black and poor We still in the worst neighborhoods still got worse schools. I mean the Republicans they just GonNa take care of risk people, but I'm starting to question like man. Why have I voted democratic? My entire life because I've come to the conclusion that both of these party suck. but like I say take. I just think we got. We got a very slippery slope and we let college kids, so no, no, you got to be. You can't support trump. If you like trump, you have to be in a certain cap or we're going to get you fired. I just think that's a very slippery slope. Sound like an old conservative Charles I sound like a guy who's trying to be fair and honest like you know, it's so funny. Watching TV for the last three or four three or four weeks I love all these white guys who are so poor black. You think we wouldn't have any problem that this country. You know it's been really fun. Every white guy on TV now is terrified. He's got to be. I'm one percents all these black folks I'm thinking like. From beginning, we wouldn't be behind four hundred years. But they're scared to death, and it's funny to watch. Listen Man I think what is what I tell anybody. Why don't you go in and look and see what people are actually done? And then you ask them do speak for themselves. It's very easy. So what do you actually done to help? Black people help poor people that act always speaks for itself, but right now it's funny watching TV because everybody's all in on the black lives, matter and black empowerment I'm like okay. So what are we going to do is great to say that make a lot of money on TV and radio like okay now it's time for us to start doing some action. Charles! Good talking. You always good talking to you. You wanted you want the dismount right. You're not GonNa let me just end this segment. The Way I WANNA end it. You want to say anything else before we go. I. Want you to tell your mother. WHO's the Saint? The sweetest lady in the world. Please give her my best. And Tell You dad, the kiss my ass. Right to. Excellent, yeah, he's playing the hits right here. He's born in different. He's just sort of doing it because he's always done it. It's all about the benjamins maybe. Never get ultimately. Your Fat Daddy Away my preferred.

Coronavirus behind bars
"We reached out to the Washington Department of Corrections and were able to connect with Jeremy Barklay. He's the director of engagement outreach for the Washington Department of Corrections. He says there are about eighteen. Thousand inmates in the states. Twenty four facilities about a thousand identify is native American although testing is limited. The state counts twenty-six inmates total with cove in nineteen the state released about eight hundred fifty inmates who qualified as a way to help slow the spread of the virus. Barkley says his department worked with tribes for enrolled members. Who were released? The office of tribal relations within the Department of Corrections has Desert knees from each of the Twenty Nine federally recognized tribes within the State of Washington. And so we are office was in contact with those tribal delegates to let them know Which tribal members were Qualified under the rapid reentry or commutation furlough so that we could further smoothie reentry process between those native individuals and the home communities to which they returning It allowed us to ask what resources might be a need whether that is You know whether we could focus on on clothing or make sure that the tribe had available foodbank resources and any type of Services that those individuals needed on a case by case basis we were able to better communicate with those tribes And again hopefully guarantee a more smooth and successful reintegration back to the community. We've been very pleased with the reception we've received from the tribes and Very pleased with the way that We built systems before code so as to work on releases for our native peoples in that. Was Jeremy Barklay with the Washington Department of Corrections? The system also requires physical distancing mandatory face covering for all inmates and staff an additional cleaning and disinfecting. That's one view into all of this. What's yours go ahead and join us right now at one. Eight hundred nine six two eight. Four eight is the number and joining us today. Out of Seattle Washington is Gabe Glenda. He is the managing noyer for Glenda Brodmann and founder of hoyt he belongs to the Round Valley Indian tribes are pleasure to have him here. Thank you for joining us for another native America calling had Internet and gave. We just heard a little bit. What's going on there in Washington state but give us a further view into this What are you seeing? What are you witnessing especially with the Washington stance on releasing state prison inmates early? I work with Hoy which is a nonprofit off named after the she'd word that means See you again. We never say goodbye. We've been working for the last ten years on making sure. Indigenous relatives in iron houses are able to spiritually rehabilitate. We work closely with a sister organization native American Reentry Services that runs a program that prepares them particularly spiritual return to society so that we don't mind them in trouble again and we've been working hard as we could for the last several weeks With the State Department of Corrections and we very closely with Mr Barklay and Lynn. Dennis tribal liaison for the Department of Corrections. LemMe Tribal member and we should everything they've done but we've really been feeling sort of like we're on the outside looking in in sort of a helpless way We've tried to help furnish PT donations from a local tribe especially when one of its own tribal members contract to positive for the disease at Monroe Corrections Center We have a bunch of able sewers in all of our circles within the state's prison system and we tried to have them be available to so masks for example or use within the prisons and we were unable to do that. we've been hamstrung and our ability to facilitate sweat lodge ceremony drumming circle or other spiritual activities to ensure. That relatives are are coping with this catastrophe and the best way possible without compromising Their own mental ability in wellbeing. And so we've worked with the DNC tried to work with the DNC and we're not trying to criticize them because we know they're in an unprecedented situation and taking all precautions. We believe but it's been difficult for us to sit on the sidelines and not do it. We normally do over the last eight or ten weeks and watch watch this thing on unfold as too early release We are encouraged that. A number of prisoners in our state have been released We would encourage the state to do more in that respect there are certain populations of our included. That should not be behind bars for example. Our our juvenile without parole Prisoners meaning a are men and women who were sentenced for horrible mistakes they made when they were juveniles sentenced to life without parole for example. But that's been deemed accrue on usual and unconstitutional punishment and so there are certain populations like those populations which includes cinnabar native relatives. Who We know about who should be added to these lists of people either of age or Health affliction or other status. That should be considered for early release
'The Last Dance:' Debate over Michael Jordan's trash talking on 1997-98 Chicago Bulls
"More discussion this morning. Of course about the last dance the legacy of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams of the nineteen nineties and whether or not the way Jordan governed that group demanded of them held them accountable. Some might say bullied them was fair. Michael Wilbon who covered Jordan Bulls and knows Jordan about as well as anyone in the media. This side of a moderate shod. Join Max Steven A. And discussed the question was Michael Jordan. Too tough on his teammates. What were your thoughts when you heard. What Charles Barkley had to say about Michael Jordan In regards to his treatment of his teammates. Well look everybody's gotTa take on. Michael and how? Ruffy was teammates. Select Selective Prosecution. Was the words he used select. Prosecution said look everybody had a different leadership style. Reason part of the reason for this documentary reasoning exists is because Michael decided okay. I'm going to be able to sort of control the conversation in terms of why I did what I did and how I did it. I it comes out and says hey you know you've had this conversation with them. He wasn't trying to adopt anybody else's leadership style. He was going to do this his way. And when it worked then you had to. You heard him during. I thought the most effective part of the last dance department made me reach for a notebook and put my reporter hat back on his when Michael Said you know. Winning has a price. And if you don't want to buy into the mentality. I am using here. Get out it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be hell for you. I think was the phrase. And so you see all those teams that you see will produc- Winnington and those guys say at the time that we did it. Seem like he crossed the line. Yes as went on. Did we think he was a great teammate? Yes this is not look you can have whatever take you. WanNa have on it and I understand Charleston's take because it was different but nobody else in their time as much I mean magic and Kareem on the way in but it worked and so I even sit. There does interesting mom watching in real time I have not. I did not watch all the episodes of advanced like most people in our business. I wanted to watch in real time with my son. Who's a twelve year old basketball player and his eyes so big? When Michael says certain things to his teammates we are watching the unedited version The watch the PG rated version of the DEUCE and he's like. Wow Dad he has to do that with his teammates. And I'm like I don't know if he had to but it worked they won and that's the bottom line right. There is the quote that tells you at all they won in Jordan's way worked. Max made a great point during the you know there was no Celtics Lakers rivalry. There wasn't because Jordan he was Roy Jones. He was so good. There were no equals. No rivals
1997 NBA Finals RewatchaBulls With Ryen Russillo
"Rewatch ables. We're doing the entire ninety seven. Nba Finals concentrate in the last two games. But this is such a fascinating document in so many different ways. This is. Jordan has become unassailable. Great at this point he's a superhero. Were all assuming he's going to be He's GonNa come through every step of the way. No matter what obstacle Utah Team. That had been around for a long time. We didn't really have a feel for them. Not Enjoyable to watch. We're about to cover bulls go sixty nine and thirteen. This is the culmination of just a brutal twenty months that we talked about on your podcast. And we did the wizards pod were they had hit this. This point of their basically the Beatles at this point this travelling circus. They're covered differently than any sports team ever. All that stuff jazz go sixty four. Eighteen eleven three in the playoffs. They beat the Lakers. The clippers and famously the rockets stockton hits the three The Lakers series. That was the Kobe ball series kind of lost in the shuffle where Shack first-year Eddie Jones Nick Van Exel. Pretty even series. I I remember in the moment thinking. Oh the Lakers beat Utah. You always loses. Utah's done and wasn't the case. It was MVP. Carl Malone still being an MVP so any we get to the finals and the subplot emerges the real MVP versus the guy who won the MVP but then this whole other thing about no Karl Malone was actually offered this year twenty seven and ten incredible defensive player such a good passer the double team. The whole offense is built around him. You know he's a deserving. Mvp where did you stay in in nineteen ninety seven on this question heading into the finals? Do you remember your do. This was none of us like watching. Utah back then okay. No-one did and even though there was never series of ours necessarily rooting for Jordan. I was I wasn't rooting for the Utah Jazz it just it was the NBA finals. It was on an there wasn't anyone. I was emotionally connected to about the entire time now because I was a huge Barkley guy and I know I'm biased. I've always thought Barkley was better than Malone and I think these this series is does not this. This is a bad series or Karl Malone fans by the way it's awful You had the number one guy in the history of the League setting you up on every single possession your entire career and malone was a really good shooter for big. He was incredible as a rebounder. He's pretty good as a passer as a closer on the wing was putting the knee up like pretty. Yeah Yeah and dude. He played every game. He played every game and he was actually a real tough guy. Like when he and Robin getting into it. There's part of me like want him to fight. Rodman for real because he would've twisted Rodman up. I mean he just he just would've but whenever I see some of those dollar memes about five four three build your Dream Team. Carl Malone's always unlike the four dollar line when he's on it and Barclays always on the three dollar line and when I think of peak bark versus people alone I know who I'm taking I'm taking Barclay. I wouldn't even argue it. But the the composite the full stat picture of WHO Carl Malone is is incredible so the fact that they're in this finals they have this incredible record. They're awesome at home. They have this amazing homecourt atmosphere. That's like ruthless. Which is part of the Rodman story when he says something about Mormons and gets fined. And then there's a weird Jim Gray interview where he starts crying before game six it. He was out to lunch. The sears right. He's he's so bad in the closing game I respected what Stockton and Malone did but it might have been the first time I was realizing something that you and I have just started talking about more and more the separation between playoff basketball regular season basketball. That if you'RE GONNA run this pick and roll with these two hall of famers you're GonNa win a bunch of games but when I look at Utah in the series there's like three or four guys who Utah they wouldn't even play in today's NBA. They're playing minutes in the NBA finals. So you have the two thousand seventeen finals. Golden State averages one twenty one point six a game ninety one shots a game in the finals games. The cavs were one fourteen point. Eight nine point two goes again this ninety seven finals and it gets worse. The next year the Bulls for the series eighty seven. Point eight points. Jazz were eighty seven. Point two seventy four point eight field goals for the bowl. Seventy one point two for the jess say that the differences. What how many shots? The difference is basically thirty five shots again towed out a lot of that too. You could talk about. It's not even defense. It's not in both teams. Were slow paced teams. Chicago'S SLOW PACED team. Because they're running their stuff but when you're running these side pick and rolls or malone a pin down where somebody comes up only to try to get it back to him in the post that takes time and that's what they did
Chicago - Michael Jordan Turned Down $100 Million Deal For Two-Hour Appearance, Agent Says
"Michael Jackson Jackson Michael Jordan excuse me once had a chance to make one hundred million dollars for not much more than two hours of work and he turned it down for sure you think that's a true story yeah one hundred million who okay well tell me okay so his agent said they're not being very specific but he said this is according to his agent and it's a quote all he had to do was other than giving his name and likeness make one two hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down god bless him he's been so successful it gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not do things he doesn't want he's very very selective in the things he wants to be involved in yeah I mean unless it was some like tawdry it get them more role deal for a hundred million dollars even if you didn't keep that money you could have changed other people's lives yeah but then you could you could argue that a whole bunch of wishes worth two point one billion dollars I credit him okay we're not taking it okay so he doesn't need it oh goodness no he is he has his own brand I mean the deal that he has the jump man logo with Nike he owns the what was the NBA team the Charlotte bobcats were real I mean this dude is he is doing fine I I think that's awesome that he would just I also want to find out the percentage under million to two billion are you gonna get some rice throwing out your rice I was but you know he's so protective the reason he is so loaded one of the main reasons is because of how protective he is band of Michael Jordan the brand is still like this ESPN documentary that's on right now is the most that we have heard from Michael Jordan ever ever ever yes he you never did you interview so you never see more like him more Fallon or anything like that he just lays so low he didn't get into the commentating business like Barkley did in like Shaquille o'neal did he is always just taken this this different route and there's been this this sort of like smokescreen around him which makes the entry so much more I mean he's been out of the league for twenty years and his shoes are still the hot issues that sell each and every year everybody wants a new pair of Jordan so if that hundred million if he felt it went against the brand that he had carefully curated for all these years hi Tony has nice enough money where he could be like now pass and don't forget is Hanes commercials yeah is he in the commercial I haven't seen one recently but I always remember he wasn't you know not too long ago yeah he was on a plane we have the Charlie Chaplin mustache and he was telling people about his aching neck member who suck but yeah yeah T. shirts in his underwear talk about underpaying planes yeah generally frowned upon death have not seen that one

"I know this was talked down a little bit earlier Jerry Brown at all but our standards the post had a story that ESPN's import Michael Jordan documentary that everybody has been talking about ever since the preview is out there told the last dance is being moved up it was supposed to air in June but now it's being moved up to April nineteenth there was something that a lot of people have no idea about when all this was going on and we were devoid of all sorts of sports programming because we knew that this was on the way Hey move it up give us some to watch now they listen to the people and that's what's going to happen so that's gonna be something to watch ten part Michael Jordan documentary now even if you were someone who was tortured by the Jordan bowls as a Knicks fan like I was this is something that you absolutely I think you have to watch because it's going to be really really compelling it's one of the great sports figures all of our generation and of course there's nothing else going on so why would you watch it but I was really happy to see that before well one hundred percent I mean this is going to be easy get major eyeballs and it's not just from the sports fanatics the people that love Michael Jordan but it's also going to be probably mainstream to more than ever before simply because of the fact that there is nothing else going on and he is you know he's an iconic not only basketball player of a businessman personality he is somewhat you know I don't know how you feel about this always feel like he's a little bit of a recluse like he's like he's out of the spotlight but he's never really truly out of the spotlight yeah I agree a hundred percent I mean the whole pop in here there he'll give you his comments on things here and there of course is ownership in the NBA is where you see him from time to time but I mean he could he could be out there a hell of a lot more when you think about guys like Shaq and Charles Barkley and how they are on TV constantly you know Magic Johnson is absolutely everywhere well Larry bird's another one of those guys and I guess this is soaring in the background even though he's been involved and stuff but you don't see it on interviews with him either but yeah I mean he was he was the the biggest or the most famous and he only pops in and out here there and you don't see him over saturated at least you're not over saturated Michael Jordan stuff which makes this documentary even more appealing to me because I'm not like sick of Michael Jordan by any stretch of imagination because I don't see a
Remembering Christian Laettner's Famous Buzzer-Beater
"Friends from Pearl Jam taping this Sunday afternoon. We don't need to take this on Sunday night anymore. Because there's no sports it's all it's all vintage sports. I've actually been preparing for this moment. My whole life. Old Games ran. Russillo is here as he is every Sunday. This was the part of the schedule. And we'll be talking about March madness thoughts where the last couple of weeks of the NBA would were going. Would-be worried about Mvp conversations and things like that. Now now I wanNA talk about The later shot. 'cause I watched that with my son yesterday. He had never seen he didn't know is going to happen. He was amazed. I got to relive it. Threw Him Russillo. Yeah that was Was An all time. I mean that that seriously in the moment you're like this is a kind of game that I'm going to think about the rest of my life. I mean not every day Certainly but late nurses dominance is a college player and then seeing younger people watch that game now and not like Lakers mom and you go. You guys have no idea you have you have no you think you know but you don't you know what I what struck me watching that game. I thought Leitner was going to be a really incredible pro because he was so good in college. But then you watch him and you think about the translate him as I go. He's got slow feet was really hard for him to like. Put The ball down. Every shot was almost like a miracle shot by hamlet on balance. Fling shots These turnaround fifteen footers. I think nowadays he would have been an awesome stretch five. I think he would have been shooting eight threes. A game in everything he did would have been different but I am. I was mad at myself. Twenty eight years ago that I thought later was going to be such good proud. Who else knew who knows what else happened. When we went to the wrong team. He had some personal issues etc. You know what the great lesson about Labor is is that he was. You'll know better than I want to get anything where I get this. Kinda thing wrong. But was he one of the first guys like tested positive for. We'd like in that era. Right or was rumored or something. There is always always rumors. He talked about that thirty for thirty. We did that. You know he definitely Off The court might have had a couple issues but a everything. I love watching these games and just getting upset about some of the issues are making 'cause like Grant Hill. Just first of all. He was a soft mark coming off the bench which seemed inconceivable but It seemed like he could have gone by anybody. He wanted to Kentucky team at all times and yet they're like all right spread out for Hurley. This is much better option. Hurley's got this. Maybe she go to grant hale the guy who guy who's going to be a first team all NBA guy in five years. Yeah later was suspended. Some Games there. I Don history but I just wanted to double check it because I remember later on and that was you know when I started talking to guys in front offices in I would be leading up to the draft and I was like you know. How can you figure some of the stuff out because what you learn is that no one really figures it out? But when you're outside of the world you think everybody has this magic. Is that that none of us can understand? It's really not that and something to gm told me that was really really smart and again it was the very beginning of me talking to these guys when we were talking about backgrounds personalities and try to figure things out and he goes look he was plenty of guys that are from terrible areas. Have a terrible family set up and have bad guys around left and right. And they're the best teammates they practice hard. They care they never get any trouble and then you look at somebody like Leitner. Who's like the poster boy? He's one of the best college basketball players in history. Not just guys that we saw was that dominant. He was incredible. And it's like here. He is Duke. Looks like he's a gap model and the whole deal and it was like well. Yeah you know now no one cares about any of this stuff but I just always thought that was really really interesting to kind of talk about lake nurse transition to the pros because he was. It's hard to imagine. He wasn't better because he still was a decent player like he still had a decent career but he was at all incredibly dominating at Duke You thought there's there's no way this isn't going to be a special pro. Plus we had familiarity with them. Because we're able to you know. Watch him and watch that Duke team evolve and even like they were shown Cherokee parks on the bench and acid. Like I remember. They recruited him. He was like the number one guy in deal he was going to be. It was going to go from ferry to Leitner to Cherokee parks. And you know you watch him on the bench and guys like Thomas Thomas Hale who added thought of in forever you know we just watched all those games back then and and something changed with College. Probably Fifteen sixteen years ago when you know. Maybe they will. Maybe it was less time. I know everybody's talked about all the possible reasons for it but it just met more back then like I remember where I watched that game and who I was with. You know an and there's been Great College Basketball Games especially this year late. They were shown. Today they're shown Carolina Villanova two thousand sixteen. That was an awesome game. That was really fun. But it. There was a weightiness to especially that ninety two seasons. Because you had the The fab five and It just every I remember everything about that seasons it was fun to relive it. I thought. Cps did a good job the way they showed it see. It felt like a real game. They didn't try to cut ahead. They would go to commercial and they would only show one ad so they could go right back so it stayed in the flow. But they didn't try to edit it. They didn't cut free throws so it kind of felt like being a time machine right. Yeah that when I've gone back in watch the NBA stuff You sit there and like the thing that jumps out especially working on the side of it now like I would. They're all these things that I would never think about is just a kid home watching these games and now that you work in it not that you and I have extensive background calling games but you just you look at it so differently You know when you mentioned the college basketball thing though it is. It's a simple answer. You can't have a brand where you're changing the brand every single time like. Imagine if you had this hit. Tv show with all these characters that people invested in and he said. Oh by the way we're never bringing these characters back for season two where he's GonNa bring all new characters and it just. It's hard it's really simple answer. But the turnover. Who used to get weird when guys would leave after their sophomore years but like what like what that. Guy. I think. He's doing now granted. It's wrong I think I should be able to go straight out of high school but there's just you know we like things to be easy as fans and really as consumers in any story like really it's how do you get people to jump into the next part of the story and college. Hoops like how many people can name. Who's on Baylor? You know for the season started. I stopped everything to watch Baylor. Kansas and it was a really fun game. This year was like nine. Am Tip out here. But I know that those kind of Duke Games or that Saint. John's Georgetown stuff for Sarah to that big Monday like I would watch that instead of the NBA growing up and now. It's absurd to think I would ever do that. I saw. I noticed watching that thinking about that team and even Kentucky and they were talking about how they were on probation for two years and the guys stuck around. Patino saying they really have anywhere else to go the other. Yeah they had all these seniors that were there but one of the things. I loved about college back then. Was it married high school in the sense I. The new guy shows up. And he's the freshman. He's gotTA prove himself. But then you got the older kids that have been there for a while and you know. The Duke was like the perfect example of. They're they're really like a high school team. Cherokee parks was the young freshman. Grant Hill was a sophomore. Who is going to take it over when Leitner leaves and and that dynamic that just eventually was gone. You Watch that game and you're thinking Mashburn Ingrain. Hiller are sophomores Mashburn. Just unbelievable there. Eight hundred twenty eight ten just looks like a classic stretch for now he he would have been I think a multiple our NBA Guy. There's no reason he should've even stayed at Kentucky for two years he should have gotten into the NBA as fast as you possibly could. We didn't realize that back then. Yeah I got to know Mashburn when he was at he. Spn One of my favorite living in Bristol stories. Is he and I go into Walmart to buy an extra controller and I didn't know it was going to pay for it because I didn't want to assume anything and I was like. Yeah 'cause I had the playstations hooked up in my hotel room and we were just bored out of their minds so it's me Jamal Mashburn at Walmart and I asked him about that team. And I always when asked about different coaches that these guys played for. I was always really interested. In which coaches told you to stay or told you to go because they're guys that are really selfish about it but then there's other ways you know now it's it's out of control like no one. Stang but back then I was like well. What would say to you he goes? I'm not letting you come back. You're too good like you're too good. You have to get out of here and I know you know Ripa Tinos. Rep's is taking pretty big hits over the last couple of years but that was something that I was always really impressed with that. He just looked at like I was like. Did you want us? He's Kinda wanted to stay because mashes whole thing was like. He's a New York City guy and his mother wouldn't let him go to a school in New York City. He was telling me about some of the recruiting stuff like Saint. John's back then still would've thought they were getting Jamal Mashburn. And he's like my mother was like you're not you're not playing ball in the city. And then he goes on a Kentucky after Kentucky went through that that brutal stretch. And you know that's that's the game if you're thinking of one loss that you've had in your Phantom Bill. I'm trying to think maybe it's two thousand. Ten Celtics Lakers the one. That's things the most I don't know if it's game six eighty six in the mets. But that doesn't feel as bad since they've won four titles but if you're a Kentucky fan like that's the kind of that stuff comes up every day it's like Bucky Dent in the eighties for Red Sox fan just sitting at a bar. Mfn Bucky Dent on because later shot. Well the Kentucky did end up winning. I think it's probably worse for Mashburn Jerk Kentucky Fan. You had to tidal teams later in the decade. Because like Ben and I were watching. We went right from yesterday. We were watching that Kentucky game and then the Major League Baseball Network were showing the playoff game in seventy eight Yankees Red Sox and we watched the last like probably two and a half innings and I was explaining to him how the playoffs worked back. Then it was a gay. You played the whole season. It was two division champs in each league. They tied so we had to have a playoff game. And he was like Whoa. How did they decide? Who had it as like? I don't remember. I just remember like everybody from Boston to stay home that day. And we're watching it. He had no idea it was going to happen. And a living through the the remmy hits that shot to Pinella. Panella can't see any just jabs his jabs his mid out. I'm getting mad at George Scott all over again. I think he was my least favorite. Red Sox player just swing for the fences. Every time never never touched a ball early on that he was early. It was at the head of it. Yeah Jangle That was such an agonizing loss and they've won four world series since and it still really hurts Agata Sad. I don't feel any better from it. Yeah I I grew up hearing about it because you know that's where our our gap comes into play. Were still too young to but it was one of the first things like eighty two as my first sox game against brewers and I I just remember like the Bucky Dent thing like it was four years later and people still in them. I remember that we again emceeing. So if the way your brain store stuff early when there's nothing else in there so they allies kids we can always go back and remember anything. Because there's no distractions of real life. But I remember being upset after the fact years later. Just my father telling me that they blew the fourteen game lead and you just go. How is that possible? Like how? How could they have low like how they had the best team? And all these different things and again that stuff used a matter a lot more And Eighty six at all comes up again eight years later so we've seen over the last few days in especially ESPN and then Nba TV and emo but others channels. They're

That's it's just wrong about him. He's funny and fun. Yeah it was very funny is me of a the round mound of Kevin Leman okay. That's where we used to call the mound of game of games now. We have often joked about who is the person that's going to eventually punch corey. Pallandt the guy who was fairly certain Charles. This might have been at one. We thought it was going to be Charles Barkley so we play. We weren't GonNa scare and we told them that one of his colleagues wanted to scare him that we weren't gonNA scare them. We showed them that. We had the wrong table to do the scare. Then we played a game of five second rule against Ellen with Kevin Leman hosting thank you where we built a table that cory could hide inside and scare him from and He scared him. Yup definitely scared him and you definitely want to go. Watch this for one. Reason for my enjoyment is Kevin who would that orchestrates ninety nine point.

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. It's just a lot of love was having an and I see in Detroit and it's always been that way you know. They've always reached out and help each
An Interview with WWE Legend Kurt Angle
"Incredibly pleased society. We've got joining us. Who never quite expected? That's phones on silent everyone. I never expected that we would have on. Tko wwe wrestling legend. Kurt Angle first of all. Thank you so much for for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me on. And let's see you're over here with them. WWe promoting the new bt sport. Yes exclusively in the UK for the two thousand and twenty busy day few. Yeah we started early morning and we're GONNA go out tonight we just have like a a gathering at bt. Not and. I think it ends at eleven o'clock but we started early morning and this is normal for for sports entertainers. Yeah do a lot of media so going a huge wrestling fan on A. You didn't have sky in your house. Yes so I was like an a young kid by Cole I was Afam. wrassling bottom was on the subway channels and I didn't have sky the watch it as much as other guys. Yeah but I was obviously a world of high beg ables. Did you know when you first joined. Because obviously in these this day and age social media the Internet you know how truly global the companies and how far you're reaches but were you aware in in the late ninety s just how many people were watching worldwide now. I I didn't watch wrestling. I didn't grow up watching it. I start watching it it would. I started so when I saw the company late ninety eight. That's when I started watching I do WanNa come on those days. But he's okay. You got quite like to find Natalie about your amateur wrestling career because as a professional sportsman. That's something that you were known for his part of your. WWe character but actually that was a huge part of your career and your life you were in a family of rest is your brother's arrest sits right yeah had four brothers. They all wrestled. They were all very successful. I was the youngest. Didn't really like wrestling. The START WITH I. I like team sports. I didn't like it depending solely on me but the more I watched my brothers and growing up I start liking wrestling. I started getting better and eventually I got better than they were and then I became came the best of my family by win the Olympic medal. Yeah 'cause wrestling in America's be of a high school institution because we have it starts when you're serve in elementary school visit. Almost every school has a program right so junior high high school college. It's very big over there. So it's it's part of our culture because a lot of people call for boxing to be put into schools as part of the curric- it used to be in the schools and there's a call for it become back and installs obviously a lot of discipline and everything else and you see the the problems that society has these with Nayef Cram and gang culture and everything else. I think. Think that programs like that rather than in the states and boxing programs and the stats are in the UK. Only going to help us. What point did you? What age did you think this could really be serious for me as a career I would say around thirteen fourteen? I started having a lot more success and got to the high school level and I lost success there and it just carried over to college and I didn't really. Oh you think about Olympics. When I was younger I just thought about that season and if I could win the championship that year and every year I continue to win which Olympic I'm big city one nine hundred ninety six Atlanta Atlanta well? Is that your proudest moment. Out of everything you've done in your career. Olympic gold medal surpasses says anything. Yeah it was You know even bigger than anything. I've accomplishing wwe. Yeah Yeah Imagine. That was a kind of Golden Olympics for the US esteem cousteau was the homeland picked. Michael Johnson it like the basketball team is Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal came one. Those guys Gail Devers. Even Andre Agassi won the tennis and we're legends in that team. What was it like to be off in the Olympic Village? Seeing those people it was pretty cool. You know you knew it was special when you went to opening ceremonies and you saw the athletes there and the guys you mentioned they were the guys and girls that were participating that were already professionals professionals and they made it you know viable for pros to end up competing in the Olympics and so you saw basketball and tennis. Ns and now even golf. So the the pros are going and winning medals as well now so those of it because one of the things the Olympics exp boxing is one of the only sports where there is a kind of. There's another trajectory and other policy if you win a medal for of sports certainly minority sports. That aren't necessarily a lot of TV coverage the Olympic medal can often be the kind of end of the road. There isn't anywhere else. I speak to go resting very well. Be One of those is and and so for you that amazing so the question I was going to ask you without. FMA How to beg then as it was Ni- would you have took that pop rather than the wwe without a doubt. Yeah wow it wasn't at that point. UFC struggling they offered me a ten fight. Deal for one hundred fifty grand and that was our biggest contract they ever offered. This was in ninety seven and then sound very good to me so I decided decide to go pro wrestling and by two thousand one two thousand and two you have see was kicking in high gear but I was already drawn in and a pro wrestling scene. So how how did the what was the chain of events that let you to the door of of the W W well in one thousand nine hundred sixty minutes man offer me a contract. I flew up to meet with them and I wasn't interested. I had a lot of people. Tell me you know you grew up. You never watched the Fake what you did was real a lot of my peers. Were telling me don't do it. So my agent through the contract the way and I'd say in one thousand nine hundred star watching Watching stone. Don't go Steve Austin the Rock and however flannel. They weren't how entertaining they were. I thought man I could do this. I think it'd be a lot of fun and you have see at the time. Time wasn't going anywhere so I went with a wwe. What was the the early memories? Because I imagine wrestling's one of the toughest sports there is a is a amateur wrestling but of red. If in a few places that is a pro wrestling were were incredibly tough. What were your first memories of some of the first lessons and training training sessions? You did all the first day. When I started training I quit? I took three bumps and my neck the pain I was getting my neck and back it was like this isn't normal. You don't it's like self abuse and you know we bump on plywood. It's a lot like this and There's no spring underneath It is self mutilation. You're you're basically beating that crap on yourself because you're allowing. I mean people were throwing around and take your head off with a clothesline and the object. You're bumping on his plywood so it was very abusive in the first day. I I didn't like it and I decided to hang in there. I came back the next day and I continued on. I got used to bumping and and used the pain so eventually didn't bother me as much but I'm paying for it. Now see a leg generation before ours. My Dad's generation. They would not really look favorably upon the tablet Ali. But what these guys do is take some serious stick their body. There's some serious injuries and stuff. It's you know your two weight world champion. And you've taken many punches to the head and body is is anyone WanNa taking a lifetime. What is what is pain to you guys? How do you manage pain? Do you ever get used to it as ever become less painful or do you just become used to living in that place. It's something you get used to. And as a young boxer I think Jimmy Moore. My trainer is spoke about this and said that you can tell from a very young age or someone hazard or not and it's normally a kids barn and if they take a punch annoys on they don't cry and they punch back it's like you can't make the Paean it's like I don't know what obviously adrenaline carries you through a lot of it but it's not like a real specific. If you punch me in the arm Ni- I would feel feel more pain than actually punching ahead fate strange sensation. It's not nice but it's very very hard up. Manassas gray but law detainees. I've not been able describe pain amateur wrestling pro wrestling. What are the worst kind of pain that you can describe? And how do you deal with those. I think the worst pain I had and I still have it now as an amateur wrestling right before the Olympics I got thrown on my head and I broke my neck and I didn't know it. I kept wrestling again that day. I ended up winning the US Open and that put me in a good position to make the Olympic team for the Olympic. Trials made me the top guy so I didn't have the Russell the mini tournament Face the winner of the mini tournament. I was the guy that the mini tournament faced. So Oh i I I couldn't get passed by any doctor doctor. Wood Passer would allow me to wrestle so I eventually found a doctor and and he said the only thing you can do. You can't train you just would just stick in a neck with Nova game and you won't feel the pain. And he was right every match. I had at the trials and the Olympics. I got twelve shots. Novacaine the back of my neck couldn't feel it for about an hour and Russell and then an hour later I'd be in a lot of pain. You won the Olympic Games uh-huh with a broken neck that's insane quotes and wwe also. Yeah yeah I broke both my hands. The last vote doesn't ideal and it wasn't wasn't nice but it's hard to imagine when the pinnacle of Your Sport Olympic Games to be competing against the top guys in the world with a broken neck does that. I can't imagine boxing. We're broken hand. We are called you a few weeks ago and you said this is the most pain I think I've ever been in the radon especially she'll have a little bit of bone removed from the right time but there there was a a tendon that had ripped and it needed stitch together without that Han was give me more than than the left hand which has seven unscrews and appropriate and at night.

I had a painkiller addiction overcame about six years ago and you know stay clean and struggle. In the way I have been very difficult. was there a lot of pressure even when you had injuries week in week out to go and perform Tom. Did you ever feel that. You couldn't say no part of the problem no I I. Nobody ever forced me to do anything. There are a lot of times.

Okay well you say tomato I say tomato that was so why are named group can as long as I'm holding it so so that my hand is on the low side and gravity. Then it's then I would. You remind me of some of these foods who walk around spinning a ball on the finger. I'm like yeah. Yeah that's not a basketball talent globetrotter. If you don't have to do that in a game like that all the time like I spend it on my finger. I'm like yeah. What part of the play? Why is that you have to put in a basket? That's great when you globetrotter. But that doesn't work in the actual basketball game. Do you think there are ways. I'm always thinking of ways to improve sports. We ever go beyond the three point. Play no listen to me. I didn't hear my pitch yet. Please don't start with a four point play. I want to go to five five point. But here's the thing you have to be. It has to be from the other side of the court okay and it has so what you have to be covering the entire. You know a Length of the basketball court. And you gotta throw it up but just before you throw it. You've got to put on a costume quickly and if you can accomplish that you would get like five point. I mean little things like that little thing. Well they would have been of costumes on either side and then they rare chance that a team really needed to score five points instantly if you put on a Lincoln hat and beard really quickly and hurled it up in got it in. That's five. It's called a mass thinker. They gotta show show about yes. Let's keep it on and mass mask Pinger. All right. Don't don't don't ruin the game so you don't want to see four point shot ever. I do not white. One guy gets another guy shoulders and they score from the backboard and that's four points though we don't WanNa see that okay all right well. I guess you've just decided for everybody turn no fun. Tokyo's does the thinking of ways to improve the game so there's not one thinking of ways to add an exciting element that completely blows it open. We're accustomed now. Hey what did you think. The three point shot when it came along. We excited about it. I don't mind a three point shot. I mean it takes talent to make that shot right. I mean when you start going back up some people said come up with a four point shot or five point shot and they'll just strictly luck right now we don't listen. There's there's another lucky stuff that happened a game. We don't have to make it like a trick show right well just telling you what I think would work. And I'd like you to pitch that to the guys. Okay now we visit to those guys up on the air. Let me see if we get a movement. You'd think they listen to us up in New York City. Maybe I duNNo. I can make a few phone calls. I got a lot of poll. He'll take your call to you. Think they would well. Yeah if you call the Commissioner of the NBA. He would would not take my he would take my call. Of course we would stay calm if I can't do it yourself. You have your Secretary Secretary or personal system say so Causes my personal system called would like to talk to Adam Shiver. Of course he's GonNa take your phone call okay. How long is he on the phone? How long did you stay on the phone? Here's here's my idea for. The five point shot where you have to put on a hat and a beard. Oh that'd be like you'd probably get your two minutes out of common courtesy right and then he'd say because you August star he'll say we'll think about it and then no he's as good. He's even lie to me. No no dog on Adams a a great commissioner but he's not going to No we're not going to idea. Wow do tell it like it. It is for baseball. I had what I thought was a really good idea. which is once you hit the ball? You can decide to run from home to first order from home to third. You Go counterclockwise but once you choose that direction you have to stick in that direction and then you have. It adds a whole other kind of a strategy and then you have players running past each other on the base paths. What do you think of that idea? What were you drinking when you came up with that idea because you couldn't have been sober when you came up with that out there was a very hard? Lemonade emanate like like Mike Lemonade. But again no free pub was lemonade that had gone bad and become fermented. I'm from the south so we they like a lot down there. Yeah No. That's not bad idea. It's not as bad as first idea whether it's bad. Okay just thinking of ways to improve sports and so these ideas are free and you can take them where you can leave them. A Mo- leaving man.

"Little hands can hold a whistle. It don't have little heads anyone listening to this podcast tasks ame large man. Another another take just talking to a larger man other. Take a big hand to hold a little whistle man. Do you ever think about the fact that you played a very physical kind of ball. And it's very hard to walk away from that sport and or any sport but I would say I would think particularly basketball without having lifelong pain. What did you what did you come away with? Because that's such you took such a pound. I'm in such pain like I just got to new hips. The first thing I did I probably need knees knees and shoulders. But I don't care to be honest with you and I've been shot a lot and as I've taken every drug possible to stay out there. I wouldn't change a thing about my life because you know calling on a little kid from a small town in Alabama grew up in a product when my mom being a made my grandmother worked in a meat packing factory I was able to buy my mother and Grandmother House. Take them out of poverty A two of my brothers a password. I got one brother left and I've been able to send four. My nieces to college changed the dynamics their life and then obviously I've been I've I've I've exceeded all my expectations and I don't care what kind of pain I'm in. I'm just gonNA take some advil. Some aleve paid for those two. Oh No no no no I was around. I'm hoping I get to actually hot commercial out of it. I don't care hear about the pain or anything like that. I got my hips done so I can play golf. You know but like to say like that's like these football players dot and I'm amazed by football player because it takes real courage to go out there but it's a dangerous sport but I guarantee you ask some of those guys. They wouldn't change a thing about it is. It's an amazing as in life. But like where's am. I going to make this type of money the baby by my mom and grandmother housing all my nieces college and live their life that I live I I went. I wasn't going to be a doctor or a lawyer. Let's be realistic. You are a very passionate proponent of education that's something that means a lot to you and making making sure the young people are educated and not just your nieces not family members that something that you have worked hard to make sure is available to more more people well is is really important as -nificant to me because I found out something when I made a role model commercial back in the late eighties does too many young black kids who think they're gonNA play pro sports. I'm like I'm not trying to be a bad guy on my trying to rain on your parade. You're not gonNA play Pro Sports. Get your education get your education get your education and that's all I talk to them about all the time one of the things that I've done the last couple of years I guess three has three. Historically Gla black colleges each a million dollars and I'm getting ready to do another one. I'm not gonNA now school yet but I'm getting ready to do a fourth one when I go spend time with the kids I said you you can be a doctor lawyer. Teacher firemen policemen engineer. Something like that but you can't we go home and look at Your Mom Dad. If they're both five seven you're not gonNA play. You are pro sport more than likely right but like I say you can be a doctor lawyer. Teacher firemen policemen engineer. You can do something amazing. So that's wanting my biggest regret in my life is that when I was younger we didn't take education more serious because it worked out good for me but I feel bad for some of the people because you know you've got a young kid everybody's taking education. Now you see now gas. We should've taken education a lot. More serious doesn't that's probably my biggest regret. Yeah and I'm trying to make up for when I go speak to schools guys. I don't care if you make get to pro. Sports bless you as less than one percent and every sport less than one percent in every sport and I don't think they understand how important importantly is to get a free education. Yeah it it's like a free education like most of my friends like they got like real jobs being serious financial debt because a student loans and I said guys they're going to. They're going to pay you to play a sport and get you a free education. That's a really big deal. At listen. I remember are bitterly. And forget what you're in the eighty s when the first NBA player made a million dollars and me and doctor j Moses and all the guys were going around half in each other we cannot believe that will NBA player was gonna make a million dollars. Yeah and now we got guys making thirty forty million we. I think we've probably got twenty twenty five to thirty guys making thirty million dollars or more and I'm like that's amazing for them. God blessed him but if I'm a little kid and like I say ah I'm going back ten fifteen years even when it was like five ten fifteen million dollars all these young kids think that's the reason they wanna be famous. They WANNA be famous. But it's really just about the money and stuff that comes with it and I number one. I wish him all luck but at some point you got to be realistic. I mean it's not that simple. Nobody just you can't will yourself to be famous and having a talent you gotta talent bless you.

If they should definitely tell them if they want to stay in lease which I don't mean that in a negative way out of wanting to stay in Leeds. I mean, I want them to grow up and be Charles Barkley last Armstrong, President Clinton's from a small town smaller than lease Hope, Arkansas. But you don't know what you can accomplish. Until you put yourself in the situation where you can be successful. And as I was reading your story of growing up in Leeds. I think back up I think people assume you're six six now, you are who you are hall of Famer, etc. People just assume that when you were in the second grade, you were tall and the fifth grade you were tall. And when you were in the ninth grade you were. Is it true that as a junior in high school, you were five foot ten two hundred and twenty pounds? Because you know, it came out later how? Who is this kid from Alabama who nobody recruited Alabama Auburn UAB because I went from five ten to six five in one year right over the summer. I read over the smoke, and by the way that would hurt, you know, I never felt that type of pain though, people asked to have asked me that before I would think, but let me tell you something though. It was a shock to everybody system. It was a shock to everybody everybody system, and it goes to show you though basketball. It was it changed my life because at that point. I wouldn't think about NBA. I never thought I was good enough to plan to NBA. Hang on is junior five ten two hundred twenty pounds. You didn't even make the team. No. I was a backup fat point guard at that point. But when I got to six five and a half all here, bro. Glue, watch out mother. Yes. I would it was so and I played like everybody who had made not really made fun with your bench warm or you're not good enough to make the team. I was wreaking havoc. Go near asked to. You know, because you know, 'cause 'cause in my hometown that's one thing about being for small towns pool is a big deal, football and basketball a big deal in my hometown.

"You could download it everywhere. You could download stuff. We're trying to get a project off the ground here with the digital pod. Cast network. That's going to grow over the next six months in a year with some fun stuff. And we need your help. So support the stuff we're doing jemele hill. It's a fascinating conversation humanizing. And I think many of you will enjoy it. No matter your politics. No matter your biases. Now. This man is very polarizing has been all his life. But I've always liked who he is. And what he represents. I've talked about many things with Charles Barkley over. The years basketball is not one of the things I enjoyed talking about with him on the radio. But things like what he did. I don't know if you read about this. There was a viral story about his friend Lin Wang. He just met a random person and was very kind to them and spoke at the funeral and became friends with a random person, and that Lin Wang his son wrote the story about it and people were deeply moved. Here's what I'm here to tell you. I have never in my history knowing anyone in sports or fame, and he learned this from Moses Malone, Dr J, I have never met anyone who was better to people better with anyone like the smallest of people. Than Charles Barkley. And so I don't think this story is even that unique for Charles Barkley. It's unique for us. But I don't think what he did. Here is unique for Charles Barkley low. Second may Charles how does that work always making it about himself scouts is very good. At that. How you still looking at pictures of of your face on t shirts is this an odd story for you. Or is it your life? You you make connections with people. First of all, I want to say one thing I was watching how request the other day, you know, other partner in a refuse by something to show after you highly questionable. The next time. Your bag is a tennis ball stuck in please. Let me be the one who get it. Oh for the love of God, Charles Charles. I said something so nice to you. I sat there. Your day. I get a tennis ball sucker. Thank you could say that Charles twice. I mean. You're not allowed to say that stop saying that Charles you're going to get us in trouble. You're going to get us, and we don't need to be having troubled around here today. Stop saying stuck in anything. All right, ready. Limitation of been that was such a I didn't know, I didn't know the daughter Shirley's one. Let me. And. I've never got a response about anything I've ever done. Like that story almost it was really awesome. I hope people learn number one about land because he was an amazing man on. But like I say in over thirty years and the ad never gotten a response to anything. I did like I got about that story. But explain this to the listeners because I've seen you do it Charles, you, you, you physically touch people and you emotionally touch people. I don't think it's a big surprise the Charles Barkley. I know it's not a big surprise that we'd fly anywhere for someone's funeral like for for anyone's Uniroyal. Well, I think we make a lot of money to play basketball. But that's only a small portion of it anytime somebody in sometimes they are paying when you're trying to eat Downer. Or you what your family any person who comes up to talk to me? I'm gonna get them at time. They learn that Dr J he says we don't get paid just to play. Basketball. You don't make my day. You didn't make three to four million dollars. Just to play basketball. You're supposed to be called you to the fans is opposed to sign autographs, and you're supposed to take pictures, and I've never met it about in my life. Who was better Dr J, and he was one of the first lent. He said, hey, you got to be these your fans because do take on sign autographs, take pictures and. To evade band inactive since congress.

"This is the Dan lebatardshow with this to spot casts. So Charles Barkley was on yet up and he says the fixes in Anthony Davis to the Laker says it is not good for the league. But the fixes in. It seems pretty odd to God's that. Lebron James is counter chess move on. Kevin Durant is let me see if I can do this through my agency. Right. I mean, there are no other moves for him to make right? He leaves Certa powerful thing that have. But he surveyed the landscape of what his choices were this off season. And there were not a lot of great choices. So let me go do this big famous thing over here. See if I could just be great and see if we can figure out how to build it as we go. And then you hear that Anthony Davis goes to Rich Paul I believe LeBron James met Rich Paul in an airport. I believe Phil Jackson called him the posse because he thinks of Rich Paul as a friend or a hanger on instead of a businessman. He is a businessman who was also a friend and a hanger on. He could be both. He could be all of those things and through LeBron James, he has a legitimate client business in the NBA with power and percentages that he did not have if not for LeBron James. He would not have if not for LeBron James because that business is the worst. It is. Cutthroat it would swallow Stu gods gods as an assess that's one business. I never wanted to get into. It's awful I'd lose. And I think that most people are in agreement with that the idea that Anthony Davis will end up a Laker. I think more people are in agreement with that. Then are with the idea of it would not be good for the league. You guys think it would not be good for the league to have another sort of super team. Oh at this point. I'm convinced. It's good for the league. I think the league loves us. I mean, the fans love this. They love the interaction. They love the off the court stuff and they love seeing these super teams play. So now, I think it'd be I think it'd be great for the league. It's tricky though. Because if you're the pelicans, and you're looking at this you said to yourself because you got a year and a half left. Like, hey, we'd better trade them. If you believe this when you're the now, but you gotta talk to man, you got this is the importance of relationships. Do these things matter. No, no, I often gentry was hired to I understand what you're saying. Right. I understand what you're saying. But when there are human relationships involve you work with people all the time. It's not sort of like the pelicans would trade him without talking to him or knowing where he stands right now. If they knew for sure right now that he was gone. Of course, they would open trade talks right now, they don't know that. But these teams keep getting blindsided by that. Honestly, that's the way these guys are doing it. Even though the fans don't like it very much right camello, Anthony coli Leonard Jimmy Butler the way that they're doing. It is the best way to do it. They all learned that Carmelo did it the wrong way. Carmelo tried to be quiet tried to tell management get me out of here. And they were forced to trade all of the the Knicks to Denver for Carmelo. Lebron? Did it right? Carmelo did it wrong and people following the way Carmelo did it. So if they want out they'll tell their organization a year out, and then everyone knows they want out. And then you try and get what you can better though. Carmelo behind the scenes was telling him it was not publicly known that Carmelo wanted out of there. It was he was able to keep that private funny enough. That's the wrong way to do..
