The Sedano Show (HR 1)

"Saddam show here on ESPN LA happy Friday. Hello Ben Lyon. What's up your Sodano links for having me on oranges? What out big? Mike's here we got a whole crew. Yeah. We do. I was happening. We have a busy show today as Jay Bilas going to stop by, in about an hour or so and three last night. He's always great. Like he's just fantastic. So the Lakers got a guy they did a thing. They did. I'm happy for the Lakers getting a second round peg into value last night. Yeah. What a wingspan talk around these halls today. Span talk, the purple and gold got a guy good stuff. Yeah. Look, I clearly they need to fill the roster. So buying into the second round, however they were going to do it. And clearly you have to understand when the right time it is to buy into that because it wasn't cheap to get into the second round teams or giving up two and three and four in some cases to trade into that second round. Well, I guess four was Cleveland at the end of the first, but they were getting stuff. Yeah, that's the last night was last night was the accumulation. Of stuff where people paying out stuff and you need stuff the Lakers cashed in their stuff earlier in the week with Anthony Davis. So for them to get more stuff in the second round was a nice little step forward for I do agree. That that's the case. Like I think that if you're them does it help that he's a clutch client. Yeah. Sure. I think so. I think we're getting to a place where we're going to get more and more clutch clients they just gonna accumulate, right? Clutch is still in its infancy. So it started off, as a handful of guys and his exponentially grown in the fat and five six years of its existence. I mean, they got twenty five clients right? So in would imagine they'll have one hundred clients in five years. Yeah, probably, so we're going to hear more and more of a clutch guy that's a clutch guy, and if they're making clutch west out here in LA, I'm not so mad at it because they got a nice roster. Those twins twenty five names. Also really good name. And they may add to that maybe his call. Well, paul. I mean he's was he's been part of the Lakers. A couple years, though. I don't feel like he's. Getting more eighteen million dollar deals if you know for one year, I, I don't think so. That's happening this year. The Lakers are in trouble. I love people saying, well, the Kevin Durant injury or might be the end of the one one plus one or the one in Casey peas signing one year deals at eighteen mill the rest of his career very happen. That's definitely not are you more fearful of Kawai, not coming everyone assumed that he's going to end? Look, it's been reported Wolters reported that he'll take meetings with the Lakers and the nets and the Knicks in the clippers and the obviously, the raptors. So does this new stuff the endorsement deal in Canada? Does that does that change your mind on any of this? I don't understand how you can be to time finals MVP before the age of thirty and have like just the worst endorsement deals with. It doesn't say anything navien cargo jet, right? The new balance and, but the new balance deals supposedly, is paying them a lot of money, though. Isn't put sue cares. It's new balance. I, I mean, I don't buy anything. But nike. That's just me. I just think he is such a weird. I don't know his, his stoic nece and his short lipped and just being quiet. It's gone past like normal. Just weird now to me. I feel bad for the duty clearly uncomfortable being himself in public as a job. No. I don't choir himself in pump. I don't think he's he's he's bothered about being himself. I think this is himself. I think that this introvert is who he is. And he's very matter of fact. And I don't think I don't know is is he's awesome. Yeah. Right. It's just some. But I think that is I have no I didn't last night did not impact. I don't think Kawais standing anywhere. No, no, I don't. But I'm just saying because everyone's now trying to connect dots with in every way, shape or form. And I guess the newest connection is he's got this endorsement, there's a video up right now. And there's an a he's part of team. Endorsing this Canadian cargo company or something like that. Like I don't know if they're like a FedEx in Canada, or, or something like that. Who knows it would seem odd that his team would put him as the face of something. That is very Canadian, right? And then take him out of Canada, whilst making him a target or bar hated in Canada, in some way, then have your face pop up. Oughta one Winnipeg. Do you believe he'll be hated like even if he leaves he delivered something they never had because I'm on the I'm of the belief that, that no matter what happens. He is going to be forever beloved in Canada. We'll get your thoughts on that of the other side, because this was going to be a short segment anyway, because we went long in purgatory. We're back in three minutes. And we'll kind of discuss this and hash it out further. So data show you on ESPN LA Ben lines hanging out with us. So everyone's trying to glean something off of, by signing with some Canadian version of UPS food Kobe signing with Turkish Airlines, then there was that remember? Yeah. Makes sense. Yeah. Global brand right here. Your co is endorsing the shipment of lumber right? Their cargo freight company like they are in essence, you know, sending big pieces of freight, Boardman move stuff. I guess is the tagline. Yeah. Ford might Musso asked you. Does it really matter if he still with the team because if you bring them the title that they never had, and you bring them into the make them relevant? I he I think he can walk. And it doesn't matter. I agree with you that it won't matter in say ten fifteen twenty years twentieth anniversary of the two thousand nineteen raptors but the idea that he could say goodbye in July. And then all of a sudden Rafter fans are just going to be like cool with it. I don't know. I think. They're different not going to be angry and vitriol, they won't be burning jerseys. But at the same time you can't they want him to stay if you wanna be with someone and they don't want to be with you on some fundamental level. You gotta feel scorned. I guess I just think that man like if he brings you something like that. Like I, I'd be good, like, look man, I just use my own personal stuff. Right. Like someone said to me, like, oh, you know, someone actually here was was saying something about me and LeBron. I'm like I should be mad that LeBron left. But I think you know, when we left the team, I grew up rooting for brought to titles like what the hell should I be mad about, you know, like whatever dude go do? You like I'm all good. Yeah. And I'm sure the raptors fans are still on one this summer, but they did when collide leaves and goes to sign with the clippers that just say, and in the clippers come back on January nine Toronto and play, he'll get a standing ovation when his name that Halford use sure. But at the same time right now, if you're asking you want him to stay you see that he's endorsing, the shipment of Canadian lumber. You're very excited. And we decided to head west or steer guy'd come to the Knicks. That's. You're going to be upset. I guess that's not happening. Isn't it from jersey, though? Or no longer. Dennis lives in jersey. That's what I that's what I was saying. God, we this is that time of year right where we looking at uncle. I don't know what side of the family is Dennis from from co is mom's side. I don't know what side of the family. I will say this there like he in russillo, kind of ryen russillo, said this yesterday on Scott van pelt sportscenter right after the draft. And he resilient said the same thing when he came out with this last week when it was me and Trudell, which is we asked him. Like do you have any feel inqui-, and it was basically that dude? I don't think there's been anyone in the history of this particular sport that we've had less of a feel for at this stage, then this guy like it just because stuff, always trickles out, like the LeBron stuff. I think even the cleaved the return to Cleveland, there was plenty of stuff on the internet about him, and Dan Gilbert, meeting at some restaurant in Miami. United. I'm saying like there was already. Signs to some of that, right. This like there is no trail to anything. That was the way it was for Koa when he was in San Antonio, and was having the injury stuff when his team was upset with the medical staff in San Antonio. And you never heard choir come out and say anything. So I mean look, you've been around basketball at every level high school level, competitive college games AU in summertime. There's part of the culture that you sort of just having your DNA when you're around hoop, if you will write it with gives you the confidence to wear a polo shirt and khaki shorts in the summertime you walk around your coach Kawai. You've never seen anyone with his demeanor, anywhere around the star player does not behave with that much like introversion like it's really unusual so Ryan's. Absolutely right. Last night with Scott when he's saying, no one has any idea about anything with this guy. What I would also say is this in a sport where you understand this. These superstars have teams. Upon teams upon teams of people. Right. They've got the agent team. Right. They've got the marketing team. They've got you know hair team right and their own personal team or team. The guy. Yeah. His circle is so tight, and they keep it very tight and LeBron's done that, but even the lebrons stuff trickles out some because their, their tentacles have gone so far now you know, they're in all these different spaces. So that stuff kind of leaks out a little bit too with him. I wanna give his team credit whether it's uncle Dennis or his best friend believes there's Jeremy, who's been on the who's one of the Spurs video coordinators was now on the raptors staff who's kind of gone with him to different spots. He's, he's been with him since San Diego State like all those guys, they keep this stuff tight, man. Like that's the thing that people don't realize in a sport where everything gets out, eventually. And even if you have a tight circle the way you move can be the thing that triggers speculation kyri goes to forty forty with the nets. Yeah. K D moves his thirty five ventures to New York. Right. You know LeBron was out at Notre Dame high school last year. The school's brawny there's things, but the Boardman he's just drinking alcohol and eating desserts. I know that's, that's what makes it all interesting. Is that I, I actually am giving him and his team credit for keeping this stuff under wraps the way they are jesse's in Newport. What's up? What's up Jessie? Jesse? Will quick can here we go? Also just drive it. Okay. So now you guys keep saying that, you know about, you know, Leonard, not coming back. I think he's pretty lawyer. I think he's gonna he has to give it one more run. Why, why does he have to? Well, I think they're possibility. Get signed a one year contract or does it have. There's a possibility can do whatever the hell yeah. You can do whatever the hell he wants. I don't I don't know if that makes sense, something nerdy, some with the math. Now it's two years. He needs. He's, he's an eighth eight year veteran. He needs to get to ten years to get the full max. So if he signs a one plus one where it's a player option after the first year that would get him two years. Yeah. I mean, ten years in theory, he can do that, right. And then down to another one blows one seems to live in a universe where money doesn't matter to him. He's transcended money. Yeah. It's incredible powered app. It is a very strange situation where look. He's so normal right? Like the people that the stuff that's been written about. And there's a really good G Q story that was done about coli. Man. I want to say a little over a year ago, and in that story it talks about just how normal he is. How he drove basically the same car, he bought when he got drafted that he lived with mom, like they split a house. Like we're mom was either upstairs, and he was downstairs or vice versa. I don't remember right now and then the best story is the story about how in San Antonio. And we've told the story here before he loved wingstop wingstop was his spot. That was his Goto place and the Spurs have like, or hat an endorsement, maybe they still do with wingstop and all the players got coupons for free wingstop. And he lost his coupon book for free wingstop. And he was like freaking out, and they were like, quiet, relax. We'll get you another booklet like it's all good. You know. So it's just he's just buy into wingstop. Good, probably right. Thirty wings yet. Right. Right. Jamal Mashburn and Peyton Manning have done over the years. Right. There's plenty of that. But he's just a normal person. I think people forget that with athletes, especially basketball players that in order to be that good. You have to be in the gym that much, which means you have to be away from society. Right. So you're not at your prom. You're not hanging out at the beach. You're not doing the things that other young people do do in cafes is in Mike and drill. Yeah. So you're kind of an introvert, and you're kinda lonely person. And you're also six foot nine at a young age. You know you're large. So you're kind of this social pariah anyway, and then that's compounded with the isolation. So I found more often than not a lot of these guys at their core like that. But then the lights in the life kinda gets a hold of you. And you become this other thing, the modern athlete is we've known them in is seems immune to all of it, it does completely. It's he's like a cyborg basically just strange coming up next. I want to get into some of the stuff that went down last night at the draft and something David Griffin said that stuck out to me about on, we'll touch on that. Ben lines hanging out sit down a show, ESPN LA back and four minutes Sodano show here on ESPN LA Ben lines hanging out with us. We'll do a little bend at the movies. Yeah. Yeah. A little bit. We'll the Anthony Davis trade is a blockbuster of Hollywood proportionate is so we're going to go through some of the biggest blockbusters and biggest busts since the Lakers have been in the champ. And we're. Played a little guessing game. Right. So we can have just kind of audience participation as well. So you're going to know the answer, and then the three of us in the audience, one member of the audience will compete in these scenarios. We'll take multiple people for each particular question. That's how we'll do it. We'll do that. Sometime in the four o'clock hour. Jay Bilas in the four o'clock hour, four fifty five for Jay Bilas. She'll stop by shadowed, by the way to everybody who came out to rock and brews in Redondo beach yesterday. I mean the place was slammed. You guys always do such a really good job of supporting the station. Regardless of what shows are out there for that stuff. So thank you so much. We really appreciate it. And we're doing it again on Friday at not today, obviously, but next Friday, we'll be a bar Louie in downing for the second annual free agency party broadcasting all day long. So starts with the morning show at six o'clock and ends with us at seven and Mason in Ireland in between or just. Bar. Louie located eighty eight sixty Apollo way in Downey off the one. Oh, five on Lakewood boulevard. Happy hour specials starting at six AM again morning show. Mason Ireland and our show happy hours specials like four dollars and fifty cent. Fourteen ounce drafts five fifty glasses of wine, six fifty martinis, and half price selects app, select apps, and flat breads, join the gastro bar revolution at bar Louie there down. So I mentioned yesterday that David Griffin had an interesting position after Zion was drafted and look, I love Griff Gersh my dude. And I get what he's trying to do here. But this isn't very realistic. Let let let's hear this out real quick. This is after Zion was drafted and asked about Zion being the face of the franchise. Look, this is not somebody who's supposed to be the savior of this franchise. That's not what this is this is a nineteen year old kid, who's going to spin this year learning how to play winning and be basketball. Let Zion be that kid don't write this. Like he's here to save this franchise, he's not he's here to join this family, and we're here to raise each other. Again, all makes all the sense in the world, I get why you should shield him and you should try to do that. But none of that is realistic, because, you know, when they do their marketing campaign around New Orleans Gisors on the billboard Jackson. Hey, it's obviously situation where he's the face of the franchise who you're building around. But I think the idea of saving the franchise would be then to admit that the franchises in some state of power. Right. And while they haven't had tremendous success, they haven't been a giant dumpster fire in the last ten years. They've been a playoff team. A handful of times went to the second round rejecting around last year. You know. So the idea that the franchise needs some saving right? I can understand. I understand trying to lose that narrative, but the idea of, let's just treat him like another kid who's trying to learn how to play basketball, and win. Like no one's buying. This man down from a mountain top with a lightning bolt in his hand. Sounds like like he is. Yeah. Griffin Griffin event. Yeah. I again he he did what he's supposed to do there. That's just not realistic by any stretch of the imagination. You're listening to kiss be in Los Angeles. Speaking of not realistic just see what major league baseball is trying to do with the Tampa rays. Oh, this thing about them playing half of their games in Montreal. And after their games in Tampa. Yeah. Okay. So there's that's the story basically that's the gist of it is that they want them to have two homes. Now Jeff passan reported this as major league baseball is exploring those opportunities, the Tampa president of the organization basically said the same thing now, passing isn't saying that he thinks this is the way they should go. He's just reporting the facts in this situation. But this is utterly ridiculous because think about this just logistically. If you are a, a major league baseball player if you're the major league Baseball Players Association. You're going to tell your guys who played for the rays organization that they have to have a home in Tampa for part of the year, a home in Canada for part of the year. And then, you know, most of these guys don't live in those cities. You know, year round anyway, and then whatever whatever other home, they have God forbid, you have family, because you have kids and then that stuff gets even way more complicated. Plus the entire fact that you'd be living in a separate country, half the all of this. What's fair base gets the front half of the season ending day and right word, right? You, I would guess it'd be out he remains union in July August September and Canada. Right. And so who show the playoff final week of the season when they're trying to win the wild card that fan base has been down in Florida in April made it don't get any of that. Right. And then they don't get who gets the playoffs like this is why major league baseball is so ridiculous. Like I grew up. Listen man in the advocate of the eighties baseball was the sport man in the eighties. There was it was still America. Carr's pastime. It was not the NFL at the time it certainly wasn't the NBA. I mean, the NBA had just basically gotten off tape delay or the finals. Not that far after baseball is very popular in Montreal. Ause a storied history. Montreal obviously think Gary Carter. And you think of Bill spaceman Lee seventeen games starting pitcher for them was an all star. So and also wouldn't baseball pay attention to what's happening in sports the last month. I mean, every night on ESPN it's a nationwide party and Canada, for the raptors like they are American sports. Crazy up there. So I not tap into style and go all in on bringing the baseball back to the Expos. Yeah. Right. I mean, if you're going to do that do that, just go on had twenty years to show up at the ballpark. You can't figure it out. Right. It's done rap, I'm sorry. Why you had a chance. We'll bring it to Montreal we had this discussion here about the clippers the other day, which is like if you were the clippers Seattle, just, you know. No question about it. Even though she I agree. And I think bomber would be a hero for going there on a number of different levels. But they seem to believe that. Financially. That's not a smart move for them at any time. You hear Seattle basketball. You see the storm in the finals like last year. You see Isaiah Thomas or Jamal Crawford or a lot of these guys represent for wash. You feel it like you really feel it, and I think they're just wasting money by not having an NBA team. Yeah, I agree. I don't understand why why back to baseball, my dad sent me this funny thing because he knew I was going to be on with you today off, you know, the story and this speaks to sort of I don't know the, the state of baseball. If you will the Mets are firing their pitching coach, Dave Ellen and replacing him with eighty two year old Phil Reagan AK the vulture Reagan's the first manager the first manager was Jimmy dykes, who was born in eighteen ninety six and then the nine hundred sixty Tigers he pitched Ted Williams. So the Mets are going out there and they're hiring guys who pitched against ten Williams to try to move their sport forward, while basketball, you're going to MIT and finding analytics nerds and the next amino Hassen. To try to find some type of mathematical formula to move your team. I mean shouldn't eighty two and I'm not trying to be an engine ageism at all. And I love my dad my dad's in his seventies. And I think there's something that comes with getting older. That brings you perspective and wizardry and all these things. It just interesting to sports for the NBA's trying to harvest in mind, the next young messiah Jiri. And then these guys are talking about he pitched against Ted Williams knows it is kind of a microcosm of where the sports are headed, right? It is it is kinda strange and look even the NFL. Like if you look at the guys that, that are that are working in the National Football League, as far as the coaches and stuff like Sean McVeigh, or started a revolution, go. Now there's all these young guys that are getting first time shots at being head coach Anna hitters. There's less and less of the what's the phrase that. That people use not rehash regurgitated. No, no, no. There's cycled now we're us. What is the name of like? God, it's scaping me the tip of my. Right now that that people use as, like a guy who gets who keeps getting the same coaches to keep getting jobs over and over again. I'm psycho three us. Four letter words sounds like with whatever, I'll figure it out later. But anyway, yeah. Like I write retread that's what I meant to say. Retrain. Thank you. There's less and less than that, the NFL. But then you see baseball doing what they're doing right. And it's just like great. So a lot of questions here about the Lakers right on my Twitter. One of them is about how they should build this thing out. Like we've talked to everybody about this. I'm curious to see where you stand on this. What would you do is there a guy that you would give max money to the purple and gold that you say go with the three guys? Or do you build out the roster? You gotta build out the roster because June shows this past June says, everything about modern day roster construction in that the raptors rebel to win because they had made guys surge of Baca Marcus oil, Danny green Kyle Lowry. These guys are mysteries and they aren't max guys. They're just good. Dependable grownup. And the warriors when their top heavy lineup of superstars getting paid got injured. Got old was ineffective. They were left with mysteries. Yeah. Kazan tights, and Schmendrick. And Jordan bell gave you nothing. In Quinn, cook gave you nothing in McKinney giving nothing and you gotta have made guys. Yeah. So don't give me the, let's go get another big superstar three guys on the billboard, and we'll fill it out with some nobody's, it's about having guys in may and June that you can count on. So give me some Darren collison or Danny green, or a bug Donna vici, these made guys, they can get him go for that instead of just a big fish and then fill out the I'm with you on this, the more and more. I think about it. They just don't have enough bodies, man. And here's the thing when you line it up, if you line it up with three okay? Then what happens is in those three men scenarios more times than not someone feels left out that you're not utilizing their skill set properly, and they get mitigated based on, you know, just touches and things of that nature, so that and then that, that particular person becomes a target of the fans. Oh, I thought this guy was supposed to be an all star in. Why isn't he playing that way? Well, he's not getting the touches he's used to getting. Right. Like so that changes the dynamics. So, so there's all that, that I don't think anyone should have to go through. And ultimately, they really are short on bodies, just if you really look at it, it's literally LeBron and coups Ma and then maybe Bunga and Wagner, and Genero Jones crime sewing, both Roussel, by the way, getting interest from other teams that isn't necessarily like he's a guy that he's being sought after. Yeah. Some some run. And also, I think it's a dangerous formula. Wanna go big three and we'll fill it out when one of the big three is thirty five and in year seventeen coming off a year where he missed seventeen eighteen gays and the other guy over seven years has an average of sixty six game. Right. So you got two guys who are averaging in the sixties and games right now. And that's going to be the formula for success that has meal, little concern, and what ends up happening is if you do the big three, and then you go vet minimums, you're basically getting guys like that. You're getting older. So that means those guys aren't going to necessarily have the, the gas in the tank to go out every single night and perform at the highest levels. So you are leaving yourself if you have an injury, people think, oh, the other two can carry. Yeah. But then they've got their wasting a lot of their own juice, too. Then what do they look like in the in the postseason? Like all that stuff is cumulative, man. Also, as soon as the Lakers realize that they already have a third star. They'll be able to move forward. Right. But until then, and so these you're saying Kuzina. Yes. Kyle who's a star he spent time with him. You're around in Kansas personality star he plays like a star. He's got a motor. He says star things like when Trudell says in his rookie year, did you expect to score thirty points here in Houston? Yes. Yes. I did he said that does like a robot kouzmines the dude elevate him bring him up put him in that position. If you're out there putting you're saying we need to go get a Cambo. We're going to go try it. Go get this. They going qui-. Sure. But. You know, a Jimmy Butler one hundred fifty million dollars because he's a name you've heard of. No, you've got the guy Kyle coups. Ms your third star. I've got a juicy purple and gold rumor you ready for. Okay. Writing. Yeah, I want to give it to you in four and a half.

The Sedano Show (HR 4)

"Thanks again to bomani jones for talking with us about his piece on the undefeated ben lyon great guests on the show some icons strong de. Hey you know jones living legend. Mariah k. lions breaking down some crystal talk here on e._s._p._n. L._a. How boogie can get healthy sham sherani from from the athletic stadium who broke the boogie news arosh markazi from hawaii music big show on a thursday in the summer spanning the by the way spanning like the entire fifty. I guess we've got from the east coast covered. We've got arosh from hawaii and then my wife from the universe and i'm sure we'll show not sure wishaw was but either way like we've. We've got a lot of different spots covered. It's been a few days been since <hes> the n._c. Aa amended the certification process for for agents representing basketball players deciding whether or not to stay in school or explore the n._b._a. Draft they no longer are going to require them to have a bachelor's i agree that was something that was being proposed by the n._c. Double a. instead. They've just decided that <hes> the agents don't need a bachelor's degree. They just need to be in good standing with the national basketball players association. This was being dubbed. The rich paul rule because rich paul does not have a bachelor's degree. He's just simply gone on to become one of the most powerful people in sports despite despite not having that degree and this in particular rub you the wrong way happy to hear that there's been a change in the rule that now now no longer requires this because i don't have a bachelors degree and i've never once in my professional career been asked to show it been asked. I don't think i've missed out on any opportunities booties because i don't have it. I decided at that time of my life to bet on myself and jump right into work and look. I was afforded every privilege one one could imagine growing up as a child in terms of education. I believe i went to the greatest heights going this country. It's the oldest high school in america founded in sixteen twenty eight by the dutch settlers. It's called the collegiate school that little on the nose. Our our league was called the ivy league. That's all competed against the ivy league schools new new york sixty five percent of my class went on to go to ivy league colleges right our average s._a._t. Score no thanks to me was a fourteen twenty so i was around great education education growing up which may be made me feel comfortable and going out there and disrupting the traditional model and betting on myself and to start working but but when i heard that part of the rich paul thing it made me so mad personally because i was afforded the opportunity to go and grab graduate graduate college and i chose not to there are so many people in this country who are not afforded that opportunity and are able to go on and continue their lives and i think think honestly as i've gotten older indian maybe you. I don't know what you studied in college at u._s._c. but theater we perform up here. I suppose the idea of going to college for like general studies. I don't know i think it's no longer what it used to be. I think if you go for a specialized course you're in a hotel. Tell management program. You're in business school. Freeman free pre matter then. There's some value to getting drunk. Unquote finding yourself like that's not necessarily we'll college should be well. I mean you mentioned before the idea that you'd been afforded a certain amount of privilege in being able to make that decision for yourself one way or the other do i support it in that right now and and my parents not not support me financially but to say we believe in you do your thing but also too i mean ultimately knowing you have a safety net there even if they're not directly supporting you during during this you know that the bottom isn't necessarily going to fall out if this doesn't work and there are plenty of people around the country particularly in impoverished areas often in communities of color where they don't even have the ability to make that decision one way or the other day and there was a lot of conversation about whether the rich paul rule was in in and of itself racist. I don't think it was a racist andy. It's completely coated law and rule that they're trying to enforce saying well. I don't know i mean to to some degree. I get people are coming from because the effect was going to be. I think have a disproportional is going to have a disproportional effect on and i think a lotta times people of color young people of color people that don't have the same opportunities but if rich paul was white he would would be still considered a threat to the system the way he's been doing things. I don't think the rule was necessarily racist in intent as much as it would be racist just or nothing else ratio in the effect. I mean who's to say you know if if he you know look differently if there would be this need need to come up with some new type of room i think i think if rich paul had the same type of juice that he has with lebron coming up the same way he did. You know going completely against the grain. I don't think he'd get some of the same sideways looks that you know come from rich paul doing this as a young black man but he'd still be looked at as a threat yeah and look at his as walk model or or the old kind of athlete representation representation model worked at a certain time now. You're seeing guys. Take their you know the representation into their own hands whether it's lebron rich sure rich climate who went to an ivy league school in my league went to field sooner. I've known rich for a long time. He's with kevin durant like there is a new age of guys men and women. I talked to aaron kane. This morning works at octagon and works with elena delle. Don steph curry and jessica halts over at c._a. A part of larger traditional models but they have a new the younger fresh energy jess works with karl anthony towns and booker much angela ross right so julius randle. I think this idea of new styles houser reputation representation for athletes is threatening to the older but that's got. That's actually a lot of what i'm getting and these older guys include the n._c. Aa which is if nothing else institution and a moneymaker and look. We don't want the young stars of tomorrow to surround themselves with vultures richard cripps and dirty handshakes. There needs to be vetting seduction eventing system that said a college degree. It is not part heart of it. It's just not an english major from arizona state now all of a sudden you're qualified but also you can be a con man with a degree there. There are one sitting in the white house and i go there. I mean you absolutely have that ability to have bad intentions and if you have a degree if you don't have a degree i mean either case is possible so ultimately. That's why a vetting system like say. The basketball players association association actually just vetting these guys individually. That's the best way to go about doing this because if you if you are in good standing with them you should be in good enough standing with the n._c. Double a. yeah and look i mean the var ball had a situation with his son in representation that didn't go. No you know why because he didn't know vetting right in house degree lavar. I think he did graduate college. I don't know but i'm talking about the guy that he altered brought in to manage lonzo's money he could like him being a college graduate very possible and he may have been a college graduate. What we do know though is that he actually had served time for embezzling money from athletes piece and this is a guy lavar put in charge of his sons money whether because he did no vetting whatsoever a weather because he lacked common sense since that's the type of thing that the n._c. Double a. should be concerned about not whether or not you know the next rich. Paul is gonna come through the pipeline. The truth of the matter is is rich. Paul is a really good agent. Rich paul works really hard and well on behalf of his clients yeah and you like him or not. I just felt job. I just i felt like when i heard that story <hes> some type of way because it's similar my experience of but for different reasons but the idea of pursuing suing your career what you're passionate about what you care about what you want to say in the world <hes> but having to go through that antiquated checkpoint seems so dated irrelevancy. It's it's completely dated irrelevant and i didn't i mean i'll say this rich. Paul wrote an editorial for the athletic and about six or seven later six seven hours later. The thing got reversed reversed that rich paul writing that editorial gets the thing reverse like six or seven hours later explains exactly why they're so terrified of rich paul that they would attempt this cockamamie rule in the first place ridiculous how shouts of rich paul absolutely <hes> coming up and we've been talking throughout the entire show about nipsy russell and today's his birthday get a little bit into his legacy. You know not just as a musician but also a sports fan and an angelino because he was is at heart a product of los angeles. Donald show e._s._p._n. L._a. Happy birthday nipsy hustle. Today is the late great rappers birthday indicate manetzky ski. Ben lyon sodano show e._s._p._n. L._a. and throughout the show we've just been noting on the first birthday after his unfortunate passing just what he's meant to music and what he's meant to sports but also just what he's meant to l._a. Yeah you know i gotta be honest andy as someone who has lived in l._a. For a long long time i've been here fifteen years now <hes> almost as long as i lived in new york was kinda crazy <hes> but i live in a very different los angeles address than the one that nipsy comes from and <hes> talks about in his music <hes> and i felt in that moment that sunday afternoon when the word kind of spread that we had lost him sort of what what can i do. What's my role in this cause. I'm in the same city as this guy but i'm on a i'm in a much different world and i'll be the first to admit that right so i don't know. I don't know what the answer is to that. I don't know what the next step is is for someone like myself who feels a connection because of shared love of sports and music and culture and his message of of betting on yourself sal is something i completely resonate with but i also feel very alienated and what my role is in kind of helping to heal the city and move forward well i mean the first step is actually caring. I mean like you've actually taken. I guess what would be. The first step is actually wanting to find that second step. I mean like because because a lot of people i'll say this judge mentally saying a lot of people wouldn't necessarily be motivated to try to find that but you can't deny his presence like we said earlier when you're driving down the street someone pulls up to you in a car. They roll the windows down and they're playing like a record. You just you feel it in the city away. That's palpable. It's it's interesting because nipsy did independently of course he tried the big labels a i it didn't work out and it was a blessing in disguise but it just shows you a guy that pretty much built from the ground up when you go to you know his <hes> album release party in rock nation dinners and him and jay jay z and we've got jay z and a news now jay z's the billionaire he buy like a thousand of his one hundred dollars yeah exactly since nipsy he's company ten thousand dollars for for the album at nipsy was sell it for one hundred dollars at the time just the guys thinking that much ahead and having that much confidence confidence and who we is but not only that just really giving back to the community the plasma crenshaw and slauson place where him and his friends. Let's keep it real hustled odin and and had gang activity in front of for years growing up now own in that whole plaza and putting a barber shop in there putting his marathon a store near and now they're they're closing down completely to build a almost a hundred units. I believe one hundred units. They are called the nipsy hustle tower right there on christmas lawson man a guide at really built it from the ground up and to that point you know the idea of betting on yourself can be so empowering to s- especially people who feel as if a system has overlooked them or is not for them right right and that's where i think his message really resonates <hes> <hes> so yeah when you have daylight today. I think it's important to kind of you know recognize what a what a spirit he was in his journey on this earth and lives on through music. I mean i'll be the first to admit like i was vaguely aware of nips he's music while he was alive but definitely not hugely knowledgeable vaguely aware of his presence in l._a. L._a. vaguely aware of his career but i you know i was not entrenched in it but i read a lot about nipsy anger his death it just because i i was struck by how much it really meant to the city and i feel very strong connection l. lab living almost thirty years. You know have lived here longer than anywhere or else in as i've gotten older i felt more connected to l._a. And one of the things that struck me was learning about how a couple years ago he helped rebuild world on wheels th this roller rink yeah that's in the mid city eric kind of like inbetween rare he go yeah it's kind of like inbetween pico and samson intersect exact and i've. I've skated there a long time ago. A friend of mine had a birthday party there but it had been close and i i wasn't even aware that it had been closed. <hes> and i had no idea that he was as part of the renovation until after reading about you know his death but one of the things i learned about with world on wheels is how like in the eighties and the nineties it was a really popular spot that a lot of people used to go to as sort of a refuge from everything happening around them particular gang activity and it was like it was like the safe zone own right and you know you would i would imagine have a lot of different cultures and backgrounds in this one spot together and i remember growing up. There was a roller rink that i used to go to called saints. You know like saint louis saints and i used to live there when i was a kid and i went there all the time time and eventually unfortunately saints ended up closing because it started attracting an element of gang violence started just attracting a lot of fights and stuff like at that but growing up like at the time and i never realized this until i got older it was really the first mix of like black white crowds that i was is ever a part of like at a young age and like i've come to realize like seven eight years old like saints was really my first exposure to black culture like black music. They played a lot of prince played. A lot of marvin gaye played a lot of stevie wonder and as a kid. I love that stuff and i never really made the connection until i i was older like okay. Saints really provided me a different world view that i didn't have before and it's great. It's amazing and to take you know yeah to the world on wheels with nips ryan to take it back to sports like that's what sports provide so. Many people right doesn't matter when you're in between those lines your race your gender your your age players play so as a kid growing up in new york. Yes i went to this more affluent high school but the kids as i played sports was on the weekend we're from all over the city and sports has this unique ability like music to bring together walks of life and nipsy was at the center of that <hes> uh-huh and it's just <hes> yeah and when you mentioned the world world the wheel saying i sent my agent is wife. Go all the time and like that's what's going to heal communities. That's gonna bring people together. That's gonna make us realize there are people out there different from us and that's a great thing and i wanna see that continue sports and entertainment name. Yeah i mean like one of the things that i think has been really beneficial for me. Being in this industry is just talking with a lot of different athletes from very different perspectives in mine. That's why black asian. I was gonna say it doesn't matter not just socioeconomic. I mean just you know culturally where you turn up like all these different experiences and that's something that has also i think been beneficial for me in terms of just widening a worldview understanding people better like you know a lot of times. People get more conservative as they get older. I mean i think that's sort of just a societal trend and that hasn't happened with me and i think a lot of ways it's because i'm continually exposed to people of different backgrounds and often to younger people who who had different backgrounds and different perspectives than me and that's something that a lot of ways. I've been grateful for in being in this industry. Yeah i mean look at like the bogey toby we'll be relationship tobias harris and bogue on like those guys like totally represent that completely different backgrounds growing up and have a brotherhood in a friendship that will live on far after they're playing days are over getting back to to nipsy and sort of continuing his legacy mike you mentioned condominiums is that are going up you hear about a lot of the business ventures that were in the works at the time of his passing rena see nipsy statue outside of staples or you see a jersey hung up from the rafters. I mean he had more impact on the city than taylor swift it. I'm not sure to be honest but i'm sure you never know. You never know you never i know like a statue or as jersey raptors. They've they've shown these crenshaw dishes laker jerseys and even lebron and people were saying that would be pretty cool. You know <hes> but we'll see man. You know this is just the beginning just as just the beginning he was really really really love and i think one of the reasons why is really really love because a lot of people know that he really really loved his community you know and love people just he brought crips and bloods together. Manny may music with these guys and without saying hey. Let's come together with peace. He sure he showed it in his actions but if this guy no means but that's what made him humid relatable and right exact yeah definitely <hes> spending you know nice this last four hours to be able to play his music and i mean i mean when when when he died he actually literally literally died trying to help people like ultimately like he was in the act of looking at who help others and that's how he lost his life. May it's just it's it's sad ad and again especially for somebody like me like really. I wish i knew more about him when he when he was alive because it's not like he was pretty fascinating to have been just as aware of while he was actually alive. This song called victory lap. He dropped this album. <hes> all star week in a couple of years ago it was just amazing and eh seeing him perform at the palladium then roll into the n._b._a. All star weekend it was just a great time and time. I'm just taking infrasonic birthday out here on e._s._p._n. L._a.

The Sedano Show

"All right. So Donald show continues here. Ben Lyon, Brian cabinets skier just goes means in the house. Now shots, Corey brewer was here earlier. So I mean, we were just talking about Rachel's interview Jimmy. Did you hear some of it is all okay. I mean, look, it's pretty obvious right? He loves tips his love you, but I gotta go, right? Like that just seems the case, that's the case. So. You worked in front office? Yes. Like how does this happen now? What happens next. Here's the thing, right? We joked about it on the jumper. After the jump were were busy. I said on air that not only did he go there and he killed him practice. He took the third stringers and beat the first string and other stuff has come out since then where he said an interview razor said, what you went at, call, Anthony towns. This ahead, this will happen. He was talking about anyone can get it as it come, get it to me, come do it to me. And then literally every time I garden to kick it back out, he can do anything. That's all I said. But the main point here is even if you're like, you see, that's exactly what we need. That's why we traded for Jimmy. That's why we gave up on those young stuff. So Jimmy could bring this kind of energy to practice. The reality is twofold. One Jimmy wants to get paid, and you guys made the decision that he wasn't worth that that kind of money. So that's not without paying them. You don't get to keep them. The other thing is even if he were like, you know what. We'll take that one hundred million for four years. I do. I take my mind. I do love tips. He said, I love my teammates is what he says. Well, we take him face value on that. Do you think those guys are cool with that? No, he embarrassed them. Yeah, they are. They, they're not embarrassing. They need to really. That might even be scary if they're not embarrassed. But the truth is probably really humiliated at this point, especially when it comes out. He took the scrubs at r. g. league players and beach. Beachill. Yeah. Well, how does he get to a place organization? Because this sets precedent around the league where if any star player and any really good player can just freak out in practice one day and say, I want to be traded. I'm going to get the third string and they're gonna play harder than the first ring might want to get hurt and some practice news now now kyri in the middle of deal, I wanna go Jimmy middle of a deal. I wanna go. Everybody can just say they wanna go whenever they want to go. Yeah. I mean, I'm sorry, not with NBA been already. Yeah, it's been like gorgeous this. He wanted to get traded. He didn't like what's happening and kept on them. Things change. And then when days you know what? Bleep this. I don't like being here. I've been lied to by this and three days later. He's in Miami uniform, right? Eric, Bledsoe tweet from the beauty parlor. I don't wanna be here a week later. This is not news see more often. Now it's always Jimmy Jackson, did it when he will. He got traded to New Orleans over a decade ago and sat out and and complain and basically ended up getting bought out and he signed with Phoenix at the end of the year. So none of this is new or none of this is more more frequent than it's ever been. This is the story of our league. We were talking about off air onset in the NFL star playing. I don't like what's going on my contract, whatever. What do I do? Sit out, sit out. I hold that. Why do I do that? Because if I were to show up the practice or two games, I could get hurt and all my leverage. That's really not a big issue for most NBA player. So when I wanna get out of here, I don't hold out. No, I do the opposite. I show up to become. The biggest jerk in the room. Yeah. And then you want a whole year of this. We can do a whole year this. I've got enough time for do you. You'd be good in Jimmy bother year. And the prob. For Minnesota. Is that Fargo over here? He's ripping the cover off the whole thing like because he's not wrong. Andrew Wiggins isn't that guy. Karl Anthony towns is incredibly talented, but isn't yet most people believe kind of that guy from a mental in an intensity standpoint and all that they had to sign him. You don't let Karl Anthony towns go. But the Wiggins thing is indicative of what life is like when you're in Minnesota, you have Andrew Wiggins. You're probably not going to do better than Andrew Wiggins. See, you have to sign inter Wiggins. So to your point, I mean, though, go finish up and then we can move on just to to to count on that. But that was his point in interview. 'cause he said, who's the most talented player on this team? Carl, Anthony towns who's the most God gifted player on the team and Wiggins. But I play harder than they do. I show up. I play hard. This is what I do. This is how I know how to win. And for him, he can. Hang his hat on that, legitimately because he's a winner, he doesn't go under five hundred. He doesn't miss playoffs, but y'all do, but and that's and that's the point and then put Minnesota can look at it and say, yeah, but like look at your knees, look at this look at the Tibbs thing, but they were a four seed when he was four and you're healthy and at we paying you into your thirty four is only gonna get worse. Listen, I think for three of those four years, he's still going. I think some of. I do think someone has overblown, but I think at the end of the day, this goes back to why he wants to get traded, like people think he wants to get tricky because he doesn't like towns. He doesn't like Wiggins. No, he wants to trade because he wanted max and the best of the come up with twenty five year. Right. And so that's, that's all this is about really. And so when Rachel asked him is this fixed. 'cause you guys had a great practice. Apparently today he says, no, she says, is it fixable? He said, do I think it will get fixed? No, but is it fixable? Yeah, that means one thing. Money pay me and it's fixed, but y'all don't wanna pay me to get me out of here where I will get paid. Right? He goes to Miami, he'll get paid. Yeah or Houston. Maybe even he won't get paid, then they'll go crazy over the, no, no, they'll they'll, they'll they get him for this year and then they'll see where it goes from there. Gotcha. But like Miami will like, yeah, no, lock him up the immediately wanna lock them that that's not. All right. So we were talking earlier speaking of wanting out. The question is, when will Anthony Davis want out because the how, how, how does. Get right? Yeah, exactly. How does it get your the clutch stuff Ben as you brought up. I mean, you're you're great saying is the bron- doesn't leave breadcrumbs it's bread whole bread show. How do we get there? Because I mean, is it simply just we, we're at the stage with Anthony Davis that were your seven, six or seven this year. Magic number seven? Yeah, where we start to really get critical about guy or critical of guys when they don't win, and we're like, well, how many playoff wins are there? Right? And he's kind of in that realm. He's that next guy. So is it just that New Orleans misses the playoffs or is it complete disappointment? And this kind of just starts it starts with, he's gotta have a lesson. So a less than enthusiastic year. Right. So last year they went to the playoffs they swept in the first round? Yeah, like they all they rubbed it in our face. Lots of feel good. Lots of feel good, right. So if you miss the playoffs this year or if you make the playoffs and get a ni- lated by like Utah. Ninety like nothing is have you lose to the warriors the best thing for your organization authorities. But when you lose the light, you lost a Utah, Utah. Somehow that's like an indictment right that you didn't lose to the best of the conference. So all those things, if there's if there's a setback this year, I think that starts the wheels, emotion. I'll be honest. I've heard that Dempster manager of the. He's a little bit on on the hot seat. They're a little. He's. He should have been on the Hudson for years probably, but he saved. He saved his job agenda Marcus cousin, right. You're years ago. Yeah. And then last year obviously they had a nice, nice run. You could argue is your Alvin gentry was on the hot seat, got an extension, but he got an extension because after cousins went down, they manage to reinvent themselves and stay relevant and obviously when the plow series. So when you look up and down this roster, though, there's not a whole lot outside a him drew holiday. And maybe if you're really optimistic Julius Randle. Right? I asked me case, boy, Julius, the governor of Randall island. Is it an elected position. But so so. Talking about one hundred dollars. Oh. Inside jokes on radio, people love? No. So so the ideas you looking at a Western Conference where, okay, this team, maybe they're not as good as last year too. I don't think many believe they're better than they were last year. I think they're at best. That is cool, right. Adding adding, Jared, Jack losing, DeMarcus cousins usually recipe, but they were best would Mur marriage cousins. Cousins. Exactly. They don't make the playoffs. No. Balls out as an MVP year and they squeak to a seven. See that's very real about it. Yeah. I mean, let's be honest. This is the Western Conference warriors gap, jasmine rockets gap, and then there's the teams that'll be fighting for the four seats. Okay. See you throw in Portland and Tony. Don't San Antonio or they'll after those injuries. That's that's a question. I don't believe they're going to be city, and then purrs see clippers that Nick. Like the, there's a court defense in LA. There's a group of teams that are like we could either be five seat or we could be out of the playoffs. Right? And the Lakers are in that group and Memphis is in that group and Dallas and the clip we don't even talk about Memphis is a team of Memphis. They're going to be a forty win team, but. Healthy at worst healthy, healthy Conley, tire Kevin's. What they did add was Garrett temple and. And Tarik Evans playing basketball mattered. All right before the trade deadline when everyone thought he's gonna get traded that matter. It really matter to Memphis, and somehow they said a second round big is not good enough. We'd rather just walk in the summertime. I wanna get into something Ben brought up earlier as well, which is about how with that looming. How does that kind of maybe some of these young guys when we all think they're probably going to trade for Anthony Davis. So wanna get your thoughts on that. I mean, hanging out with us, Ben Lyons, Brian cabinets, Keats Donald show. This segment was brought to you by Rex, whether buying or selling homeowners, can save thousands with Rex instead of the traditional six percent agents charge sellers with Rex pay just eight, two percent fee buyers with Rex can qualify for a fifty percent commission rebate in cash prior to closing only at Rex home dot com. Show Rowland on Ben Lyons, Brian cabinet skiing. I mean, in the house makes you check out what Ben lines is doing on complex, where can people find the work? Thank you, sir. Complex sports, mostly football, but my highest rated podcast ever my lines. In lines. Dan podcast was with me no Hacen and yes. Look at that most clicks surprise. She got a means bringing the Star Wars fan, so the table into the jump Jerry's bringing the power on. Yeah. School entourage audio that power audience, the movie, Vince knock at the movie, people want to know. Downloaded episodes lines. Dan available on, I should have asked him about the Escobar film. And then be k. at the Atlantic, right? They can find your work, you and your brother. Actually this nothing juice by Jerry. Sports reporter writes an article for the athlete in the woods. Anyone. Say, hey, Walzer necessary in today's environment, journalism, it's kind of become the cool cultural currency, like the sports writer, dinner party. Well, right for the athletes. Also point, which is the other part of the currency. Yeah, accident. The actual. Before we get to the young guys on the Lakers and how they could potentially deal with this Anthony Davis stuff looming over. Their head has been brought up earlier. I mean, you and I have had a running joke for many years since the Bronwyn back to Cleveland, we like to call him daddy, LeBron we call him daddy LeBron because he came back to Cleveland as triumphant champion who's gonna show these them, teach them the ways of how to win on to them. So you know, he would, you know when they would have bad games, it'd be no desert for the young kids in Cleveland. So now here in LA he's literally called them his kids. He has said that these guys are like dealing with his children so much so that what he was asked recently by someone at practice about how he keeps up with their pop culture references. And he says, well, I got a fourteen year old eleven year old and they have similar interests. Literally, they watch the same movie as they music. Yes. So he says that to take this to a different level, though LeBron does say his kids are mature so mature that he is allowed them to drink wine at fourteen and eleven. Now I know that some people here that and they're shocked by that I grew up in Latino household. That is not a shocking, particularly at fourteen eleven, maybe, but not so much fourteen. But I feel like a lot of people are like they're like a gas by the whole thing, like how dairy surprise it. Kids would even like the way wine taste don't like I'm grown up and and I don't like. Really, I love. Out fourteen year old access to wine. It's like wine coolers and Waco Rosa, right? Not LeBron James bottles of came bottles of bread. Drinking wines that I can't even sounds like Zinta pronounce fourteen with the pallets of GM ATI and sideways. Parenting theory here is if you demystify for kids that when they get a little bit older when they get into high school and they get into college, it's not this exotic thing like you go and you go crazy with when you finally away from your parents or whatever. So I think you give it to him. They taste like it's fine. I don't think LeBron is letting them get drunk. No with that would be a responsible, but letting them taste it. I got no problem. Veen's boat in Sardinia in August. What else he's supposed to do right? Drink the wine dreg Greg, it Ronnie. It says. So let's talk about LeBron's other kids in the Lakers locker room them drink wine. Maybe who knows. Right. Lotto's relationship with the night. Nice crisp Chardonnay. That's yeah. So maybe he gives them a sip two, but either way up Ben, your point earlier about these young guys with this whole Anthony Davis stuff that we're all kind of just talking about in the open. All right. So in a means business, right? And like the hot take on on cable, television business, right? So let's say Charles Barkley was going to switch and he's gonna come to the jump. That's exciting for the jump brings eyeball to the jump. Was that mean for a means guest hosting that mean for the days where means going to get the call up on the jump, Charles town. So AD's coming, if I'm Kyle Kuzma, am I staying staying here? Joyce are looking on truly for rent in New Orleans. Like how does it affect the young guys knowing that Charles Barkley knowing that Anthony Davis, he's coming. He will be playing basketball here. Maybe this year, definitely. Next year we'll first of all. I'd rather be Charles Barkley than it'd be for land Stevenson and develop the game. Now you go, right? But none look. They already went through this and then mid it last year. The guy's got to concern about their long term prospects and all. But that's part of being in this business in this league that, yes, you can, unless your name is Dame, you can always be upgraded. And if you're them, you have to coach. I'm gonna be here forever, but also know that if Anthony Davis is available. Yeah, I would trade Anthony Davis. I like to use your analogy. Yeah. And someone said, Charles, like, yeah, like trade mean getting rid of like for Charles? Yes, we lay it all out there and so you can't get caught up. I should. I buy rent like not. You can't live like that, but that's not a unique situation. Unique to LA unique to Lakers unique to be in LeBron's teammate that's called being a professional. I'm sorry, you gotta grow up in and deal with it. At some point I put the, here's where the the Lakers as an organization need a little bit better at the other half of that which is making people feel like they're. Part of the future, even if they might not be here. Julius Randle reference again on it. If I wanted to be honest with people, and Steve Kerr said, you know, I can tell, you know, I always be honest, I'll tell you if we can do better, we always will. And all these players know that. But you also don't have to make them feel like they're being shoved out the door before they are, and I think they're getting better than look. They've they've gotten, they've kept the four guys that they really genuinely truly believe it. Thus, by the way, I am also expecting someone in the audience because they're usually very creative to send me like a me of the movie twins with Arnold Schwarzenegger Danny devito of Julius Randle and Ryan Cam ski now because of all the references that's that's on its way. They were head on trading Daniel Russell which turned out to be the right thing to do. They were head on the trading Jordan, Clarkson and Larry Nance. That was the right thing to do. They've done a lot of these things right. They made in my estimation, one mistake in how they handled the round this sort of thing with Randall. But overall counterpoint just seem to get a little better of what you could be Masai and the D'Amato's something where, hey, you're in here forever where fam-. And that's not honest. That's not being on. Griffin clipper for life. Detroit December don't put Blake Griffin's truth or king and Gandhi, and Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson. Lonzo on t. shirt like that. Coming from rob Pelinka's office. I might raise my hand and say that might be a mistake. There's a middle ground in there somewhere between, we don't think we have to be honest with, you know how this works trade and we're going to take you off the cover the media guide to just like, literally, you think that that's that was connected. You think that was a like? I feel like sometimes some of those things are just coincidence. I think it was simply whether lights symbolic or. Here, right? Just symbolic of sort of the direction they were clearly taking in how they talked about the players. Ingram's our guy lonzo's are. Else? Not necessarily. They did kind of do that. There's a way to massage that, right. There's better at, but that's the the being a newbie GM. Right? Or you know, front of, I would say they have handled like, look, if that's the big criticisms. Your lie. How many I've already put him in that category of front office is you give the benefit of the doubt, right? Because they're that good. They've been at it for less than two years, right? Coming up. Next, Brian win wrote a pretty interesting story about who will come play with LeBron and he's got some cool quotes from Kevin love about playing with the brand. We'll get into that coming up next Brian, Brian cabinet ski Ben lines mean in the house, Saddam Sean SPF, hey, small business owners. You know that clear and straightforward communication is crucial. So when AT and t. says, one thing and actually means another, maybe like the front office or something like that. It gets really frustrating. For example, AT and t. says they have fast internet, but what they really mean is basic internet with slow starting speeds. A can't keep up with your business Spectrum. Business internet starting speed is one hundred megabits per second much faster than eighteen and when AT and t. says they have affordable small business rates. They need that they'll add taxes and charging more for services that you need. But when Spectrum Business says they have blazing fast internet for just forty four ninety nine a month. And voice for just two ninety nine a month. They mean it no hidden fees, no out of taxes, no contracts ever. It's amazing how this perfectly to what we were just talking about. And if you're stuck in that AT and t. contract Spectrum Business will buy you out search for Spectrum Business to see what they can do for your small business restrictions apply call for details today is the anniversary of the release of boogie nights. We talked about it during cross saga, but Mason before we get to Kevin, Love's quotes on LeBron amino Hassen is hanging out with us. Brian cabinets been lines host today here on this show Ben. Where does that movie? Right? You are the you are the movie guy like, where's that one like I, if you is if it's on like is it an automatic stop? I think it is. It's one of those three hour love epic movies that don't have epoch special effects. Right. And that movie is Connie in big, and there's so many great performances that, yeah, if you are hung over on Saturday, waiting for Michigan to kick off and it's on somewhere. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, she does grain that movie fo- Seymour Hoffman's devastating in though costumes, and it's also Paul Thomas Anderson like it's so hard to be a director in modern movies where you're the star right, where people come to see your work, and he is of that caliber of like seventies autour making we. So yeah, that's an awesome. Yeah. I mean, you're a big fan, them move, man. What's momentum? William Macy. Yeah. That's like the most memorable character to me. For all the wrong reasons, for sure for everything about so well acted so well shot. The soundtrack with writable with the trag is question. Was that that first movie with took Mark Wahlberg seriously? Oh, yeah. I would say before that it was like a lot of like I don't go. I don't know fear coal forever, like bad. Sort of teenage movie. I felt diaries I think was before boogie nights. Maybe basketball diaries though you could say the same, like a really, you could argue it was a function of casting right as much as anything, but he was really good. No. What was the one that it was like a like a hitman or what was it called? The keyboard buying right now. He had bokram Woodbine had him had Lou diamond Phillips. The train, the big that was what I thought of Mark wolrd. Those type of movies run the big hit and the corrupter. Yeah, like just cheesy movies and then boogie nights came on my wow, he's actually so famous for so long. He's in those Rockin Jack game is you know he's on those? No, I would love to see those like, man, you know, unlike MTV pitch for MTV. Your modern version rock gel games. E games. Oh, yeah. Have have like celebrities playing the? No my God. Yeah, totally while you're welcome. Okay. By Viacom, send me the check later if you want. So Kevin love said this to Brian win horse. Brian horse did a column today about who's gonna join LeBron. Right. And so he asked Davis column over? Yes. So yes, LeBron about what our Kevin love about what it's like playing LeBron and this was kind of the quote that stuck out. You have to be resilient and had a lot of hard nights. There were some dark times, but I always believed to keep fighting. I was stubborn about it and LeBron make sure that you have a chance to win every year. He's gotten a lot of guys rings. Now, look. I understand that, but LeBron's now for everyone as you know, there's this notion of, oh, it should be easy. I mean, in theory, but we talked about it a little bit yesterday with your brother Bryan which was Lucas preaching, sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice. And I'm like that al-sounos cool and yes, everyone needs to sacrifice, but he's really not talking to LeBron like he's talking to everyone else. Everybody else not name LeBron. So that's where the sacrifice Ron is going to sacrifice in the sense of the Lakers are going to play fast. LeBron me part of the team, the plays. Fasten LeBron's never played fast except Brown is okay with playing fast. So it's not sacrificed, right? He's not being asked to do something he doesn't like to do when they figure out who's going to be the small ball five. When you looked on the roster, the guy who's best equipped do it, and it's not even close is LeBron right? The guy least likely to do it more than you know, a couple times a game is also liberal. I get why, but and you don't really want him doing it all the time. But yeah, you're talking about everyone else working around that structure that they're trying to do is good to be. Everyone can be truly great and the people who are truly great, everyone has to react to that. Right. 'cause otherwise, everyone were truly great in the no one would be right. The idea of someone being so much further along a further advance in whatever it is they do in our for that separation to exist as a result, everyone else has to kind of. Move accordingly. Right. And the idea of, you know, like look George, probably who's the biggest person in your industry that you've worked with like us on a line line in line, say then lines n radio in anything in sports sportscenter head scarf impelled appearance doing when you worked with the biggest person you've ever caused pass with right here? Yeah. I mean, that's, I mean, I've done stuff with Barclay before he came in studio to Bristol. Kinda operated around his schedule like late. It was moved back for their early. Everybody ramped it up yet. So when you have someone who is that kind of iconic or big or great, right? You just move out shack, right? Like those guys? Yeah, those true. Three o'clock interview shack shows up to forty, five. Let's get you gotta do it. I think I think that's what the Lakers are in for and dealing with the guy, but you still go back to their Fisher story when he came back, how do you play with Coby Coby Coby he's going to, you know, you obviously have to fall in line with that because he's the guy who helps you win, but you still have to protect your value your space on a team, and you know whether dumb as a player as a player as a player as a person. You can't allow yourself to be mowed down beside go make your free throws and get out of the way. There's Koby. We'll try. We'll try to you down and that's his test. Do you stand up to that? I don't. I've been around LeBron to know you would know George better than me like what he's test is. More little more passive aggressive. I think a little. I mean, very, very little of about. Out of this fashion shot. You have to protect your spot. So like these young guys, you got a phone line, but you can't doormat. Yeah, it's a tough thing to do. Yeah. I mean, look, I think that the difference was like when I was around the brand more regularly the first time it was peers. Correct. The big thing peers Miami, yeah, it was. It was. It was Dwayne, it was Chris. It was Ray Allen. Who he looked at is almost like a mentor. You know what I mean? Right. Has Lum Mike Miller, James on his back James Jones, like those guys were all his peers. When he went to Cleveland. It's the joke that amenable and I have always had its daddy LeBron's home at which drove kyri away events. Right. So the question is, how does that work here see now that there's an Vancouver dinner on the road Rondo. So many nights really do on this team? I think like personality aside, I think the conversation is a basketball conversation at its core, which is what type of it's easy to Alabama. Better the certain type of players that fit better around the Braun. If you're good at moving without the ball you fit, if you're a good shooter, you fit. If not to say if you only can operate as a ball dominant creator. But if you can create off the dribble, you fit because you get, you can act as a safety released about the problem comes when this is all I can do. Right. All I all I am is in the balls in my hands. And once it exits my hands, I am nothing. I am just waiting for the end of this possession. Those are the guys that don't fit kyri Irving and they wanna championship. That's how good they were. They wanna championship because the best team of all time, but ultimately kyri didn't fit not because daddy LeBron of because Kyrie's I want the ball in my hands on thing. I wanna run the show and make the plays and all that. And instead shot at to granted LA who did the photo show? Brian cabinets key and Julius Randle twins. Tall one. So when we talk about who fits right is a reason why Brandon Ingram looked so good because Brandon Ingram plays really well all the ball. That's why I'm really interesting tonight. What what it's going to look like for Lonzo ball to be out there because he's a guy at least early on in his career when the ball is not in his hands, not getting much out of it. Well, he move, he moves okay, he, the problem is can't shoot event. You gotta fix the shoemaker. I'll give you an even bigger problem than he can't shoot. He can't. He can't finish. He's bottom five in the league in that they're saying anything numbers at the rim were terrible because tear apart because his numbers of the free throw line. And you know the shooting was all of the shooting. All of that, like phases collects, season wall, finish, all of its finish, all of it needs to change. But let's say he can get to something like he was at UCLA. I this, why put Lonzo in my indispensable young guys, rankings. Head of Kyle Kuzma because he is a better fit with superstar ABC than kouzmines. Kouzmines primary job. Primary skill is scoring. You don't need that. When you have is superstar avian. Sitting next to them engla- Braun and Anthony Davis and co. I just pick any three Vena Laker fans. So clearly. I'm only stopping they don't want to gonna casual bed then give it a year. You'll be there to, let's talk about how realistic some of that stuff is beyond the stuff because it's what Brian gets to in his column to like, who is the guy that could take their money? We kind of touched on it and we came up with an interesting scenario that isn't what I think most people are discussing. So we'll get to that in a second. And I do want to dive into Lonzo little more because we got the pre game coming up at six, its debut kind of get expectations for him here as well. But I pull into Pollock Zeno sponde- resort on Fridays, October, and you could drive off with a brand new Mercedes-Benz c, three hundred plus ten other winters pocket, their share of ten grand.

ESPN LA Sodano show rolls on Ben Lyons, Brian Camden ski amino Hassen. I mean where are we out in the Star Wars saga? Where are we picking up the story? Well, we don't have a Star Wars coming out this winter for the first time in quite a while because solo was releasing pump the brakes on all this money. Now up, I feel about thank you for taking it out Ben. I didn't realize the break was so short. This is why you fill the studio with people. Of course, that is yours. Or the mind the people didn't know. He just thought, Ben, let's let's let lions have lower gasoline right now I had some, you know, so dealing with? Yeah, dude, for sure. Really? Yeah. All of the problem and guys in the thirties and forties talking about Allman did indigestion and gas, really? That's something terrible. What the hell were we just talking about Star Wars solo, were you? Okay? And so I was okay on solo people. Like trashed it like, I don't know. Maybe I went in with the this happens to me right people like either raise expectations too high. So I go in and like whatever. And then there are times when everyone's trash. Some, that I'm just like, all right. Go into the different mindset. I'm like, I kind of had fun watching that suicide squad. Another one of those movies right felt that as one of the worst movies of, but I, but everyone I went in with zero expectation. I didn't think it was as bad as everyone thought it was. It just felt like it was a million different movies, good sign when films directed by multiple people. And that's what happened on the soda. Yeah, right. So then you're gonna have all those different kind of almost together and means right. It kinda just rushed to fast and they kind of had the energy. Of being a mainstream thing, right? Star Wars has this cult thing, though it is so mass. You still feel like you're part of an underground thing and the soul moved in. I just thought it was. They could have done. I, I wish they could've had someone else. Have it start to end like Ron Howard from the beginning or whoever, I actually that Ron Howard of those. The one thing I I didn't know how to feel about having an established director come in and do Star Wars. Right? And this is like a weird visit, very insider nerdy, so hipster or I'll give you a great example benches laughing because 'cause rope, rogue one was a movie was great Latham. I teach them how to kill time. I love it. I love it. I sat there and when I went to the premier, when you go to these premieres, you go into theater and you have to hand your phone over and they put in his Diplock pouch, whatever super home. Brag right there. Just going on this again. So you're in the theater. You can't look at your phone and kill Thomas. The only thing you can do stare at the screen. The screen is the live shot of the red carpet with the Star Wars. Show people interviewing everyone coming in and the the major theme out of all of these people were whether it was a director, whether it was the writers, whether it was the do the did the music, right? Because it wasn't John Williams, rogue one they had another guy come in and all of them said the same, the actors. They also the same thing. I all the holy crap. I'm doing a Star Wars movie and then the second on, no, I'm doing a Star Wars movie. I can't mess it up and these people are such huge fans that it was so important for them to get it. Right, right. Not only to make a good movie, but for it to be true to Star Wars as a as a cult, that same philosophy can be applied to these. Agree on it to be so perfect for this LeBron James show every night at Staples, it's going to feel like an international media event every night Sodano doing live shots from the magic statue, a means tweeting from the chairman's room. I, it's going to be the whole thing and cow who's with he? Dribbles the ball is foot. Now. He's a mean on the internet now ruined the bronze. Perfect. There's gonna be some nerves tightness to kids can keep the hover board. This man has a segue. Yeah, the pressure. Absolutely right about the pressure. And I'm curious to see who can deal with that pressure because there is an inherent pressure playing with the brunt I there is, and but that's what you want. Right? So much like what I was saying, what made one so good was these people because they felt that pressure. They lived up to that. I think that's the other thing that made rogue one work and I have a theory about this is that it's the only one that doesn't have any of the other characters from anything. It's easy. STAN. Yes. The only thing is you have a beginning happened. All you have to lay of it or targeted. You have an ending. On the ship. Everything was also seen where RTD to see demise. Don't be that guy. I don't think it's possible to make a good Star Wars movie anymore because the expectations that people bring to it and the the satisfaction of it's all these little interstitial movies that had the chance to be good. The ones that are part of the series where you're carrying the story on, can't make good ones anymore. So who's the Jenner? So of. Again, deep now, jenner's of the Lakers Genucel is the one that has to sacrifice, right? Right. Gets traded so that you get Anthony Davis. I think so. I mean, he's that we said he's the one who's like kind of on a destined for path for greatness. He's Djeddai who is destined to save the galaxy. And I think that if I'm the pelicans, I need to get back a certified star and coups guy. He looks the part. That's the thing you can come in kind of package if you are. Let's say you're the pelicans and Anthony Davis. Look at ain't gonna happen guys. Gotta move me. This is my list. It's one team. So Lakers you get on the horn with magic and rob, you're not asking for Kouzmin, right? You're asking for Brandon brandy, the four kids in a pick. Let's just say, let's just assume that you have to start with one guy. One guy that has to be not. So maybe three out of four, but one of them has to be in there you go on Ingram. I Ingram is first on that line on that list you one hundred percent before you start talking about coups have you three out of four coups was the one that's or Ingram is the the fourth that's left out? You don't like that's. Yeah. I mean, that's clearly what the Lakers would want. But yeah, I mean, if you're New Orleans and as that were to happen, you would want branding so, and that's that. That's why I think coups is probably that guy because ever known as of anything in the NBA as for certain, as you know that Anthony Davis is coming to Lakers. I don't know what I mean. Really? He signs a clutch and you don't think he's one of the lady. You're not listening to the first two have our show. What is your conspiracy? Oh, man. We'll tell me you're gonna things going to warriors. Hey, man, every person hesitant every star player that Steph curry hugs ends up on the world. The rent, a having with the monkeys cousins having with Andrea Allah like every man hugs ends up on their team one way or another and hug he, he hugged Davis, man. It was a pretty nice embrace to you. You really think he's going to be in the warriors and then out outed even make that happen. I live for that look, man. That's what I'm living for right now. Yeah. I mean, if you're the warriors and like, okay, Nathan Davis says he wants traded and you're the list. It's you n the Lakers is like, do you not say, okay, I like you dream on green and clay and clay, but like I'd rather have any Davis Kadian and Steph, right? I I can. I can live with the consequences beyond that. Like, that's that's the thing. Like if the pelicans choose to trade Anthony Davis like that level of bidding can get so crazy, right? No disrespected, Jimmy Butler. But this isn't a Jimmy Butler situation. This is this is a guy who knows he's thirty four. His prime. His crime, right men like you. That's when you make bold decisions. Right? And the ideas try to get. They're not gonna get proven stars back, right? It's all space in picks and future. But if you can get peuvent stars back that helps that competitor gonna be there for the foreseeable future. They may be under contract down remember year from now those guys. Well, maybe not nag back to our saying Jimmy of now, the new thing where it'd be a plug. I don't. I got traded for two New Orleans. I'm Klay Thompson. I don't wanna be here. So now. All right. Trade me for a second round pick and I don't know. I think the idea new. It's not new players going back for that. Three-team deal happens in all of the Lakers get colle- Thomson. That's. Everybody out. But one of the things that win horse was talking about before we go to break is like, who takes that space? So we actually came up with the idea of, okay, look if if quiet stays in Toronto goes to the clippers right Ramona's I think said on Mason in Ireland that the Lakers are kind of distant third, there. K. d. in clay, let's say they're staying in in in Golden State and Jimmy's traded. He signs with whoever right wherever trades firm, and then there's not anyone left. So do you do like the Chris Middleton route and give him eighteen to twenty? No. If you're saying every free agent whiffed that's what you're saying. Yeah, go boogie. No, this is what you do. That's when you start calling up Neal O'Shea or call Damian Lillard the meal. You start pushing for the guys who are under contract, right? And say, hey, let's make a trait Jaanus. I mean, again, if if that now we'd have to swim something went wrong Milwaukee. Jaanus they have smoothies here too. And there's, there's. LA, then there aren't Milwaukee where they're more Greek restaurants in LA, though, where New York. The. The Star Wars. TV. Walkie in lower Manhattan. Story place tonight we're, I want to get to his expectations or what your expectations of his play. This season will be. We'll get to that Saddam show bent lines, Brian chemists mean hanging out, we'll get to that. And just a second.

The Sedano Show HR 1: Alex Carus-show

"So Donald Show. ESPN LA. Brian Kevin Eski Ben Lyon excited in part. Because when you follow Steve Mason you get the tall chair. Steve Likes likes to sit up high. And be a bigger and loftier than everyone else. which makes sense you? Also it's very on brand. You're also projecting rather powerfully Intel that the headphones are turned up to Mason volume. So I turned I turned way down. I'm just I'm trying to energy. They say entered. They preach energy here. Yeah Foot like Oh God you. Yeah Steve It is completely deaf So I'm wait taller than you. I feel like like I'm doing an episode. We're like a talk show or like I'm Colin. Coward is one of those. It's one one of those two things so I'm going to fix that during the day. Get the memo of rocking the ski. Because it's Kinda cold out so far. Blood is thinned out here on the West House freezing jacket. I wrote the metro down here. I took a photo and send it to my parents like look. I'm on the train the wintertime. Well it's also too it's like it's cold in the studio it gets really. There's no real good temperature. Control neither blazing hot or freezing cold so I bring I bring a Hoodie when we work in July. I bring a outside even in the plaza. Just now it's it's freezing and I guess that's because there's a clipper game in town and there's just no energy you down there. There's no one there I love. The clipper see like this is. This is funny. Because like the Lakers Lakers lose lose last night in against Orlando One nineteen eighteen heskey magic. They've you know what the magical match if you are someone out there. WHO's like Lakers? They don't have the the tiger they lost to the sub five hundred team the Orlando Magic Orlando's actually the six best team right now. Defensively in the entire league. They've been I think net rating over the the last like five ten twelve games or so some tweeted this out today in the top five. Play today to be in the playoffs. They would and I think they were in the playoffs last year. They were they they. They have played played better than their record. So if you yes. The Lakers finally lost a game to a sub five hundred team but they lost to a a good sub five hundred team and eventually you lose a game to a team that you're not supposed to lose to that happens absolutely incredible that on January fifteenth. We're sitting here saying. Oh Wow. They've only lost one. One game once should have fun and keep in mind folks. They had that's remark. They hadn't lost since Christmas and I understand that was clippers. You know there's these games but like you don't win every game. I I know you sound like an apology and say you know. He can't can't win them all like the guys in the locker room and I really can't win them all which but like you you can't you don't win a nobody. No team has ever eighty to know and the last time the Lakers lost was was Christmas. They've had multiple win streaks four win streaks now of seven games or better it's mid January. They've had four of those don't i. I'm not here for your. How do they give away a game against Orlando hot? Takes Aches up here today because they lost the game tour land. No and I'm saying wow. There are mass they lost it owns Orlando and when Anthony Davis didn't play Anthony. Davis didn't play. Do you have a timetable. He is They did not practice today. He's GonNa have to practice for place. They didn't practice today. They are scheduled to to practice tomorrow before they fly to Houston It would not shock me if that practice was canceled particularly if Anthony. Davis Davis isn't going to participate He I would be surprised if you played Saturday I'd be surprised as well than if he played. They'd Monday again. Because there's if he doesn't play Saturday you need another practice. They got to go to Boston. There's not a practice day in there for him to get on the floor so I think you know. Maybe you're looking at the New New York Games. You know back back in New York on Tuesday Wednesday Wednesday in their practice their if they play right and maybe he can get enough run in shootarounds and this and that healing up but I I'm surprised trip and the right afterwards. There was talk of him not going well but it was a it was a good sign that he went in any way. But I don't understand the point of it. I think to the people doing therapy therapy is for that other than like rub some dirt Donovan Salve. I mean is there a salve for that do people still uses healthier. If you're if you're so I asked you a timetable and we still don't have in your idea but the would you take anything of course if he misses eight games for this. It doesn't really matter especially since the Lakers ardy stole you know the the game in Dallas. Where eighty didn't play in the thunder thunder game where they both didn't play and then they want a couple of like it's okay? The only thing that has maybe worried a little bit about last night. Is Cow Acoustic once again. Yeah we're going to talk about how crews from take a deep inhale there and now in deep exile. I spent a lot of time talking about calm and now we have a lot talk from a fish net shirts. You see the movie meteor man. I did one of these seven people who looks like one of the bad guys in meteor. Man He's He's he's working on personal style. I'm not a huge fan of the hair game. How does last night's performance fit into the personal style Lavar? So I'm I'm much more concerned about the personal style on the floor and he didn't play. Well I know he had seven assists which is nice to see playmaking Kuzma something but like his job is to get out there and put up some buckets and be comfortable in that scoring role and another thing. He has not done that well at four points the other night. I mean that's my my point has I'm not gonNA come in here and nobody should should be like. Oh my God they lost the magic. Because you can't win the same way he goes for thirty something and you go. Oh who's back. He's fine. No nothing is. WHO's your alcs no no and down in the Bronx Ad Round Oklahoma but also institute though? You can't do that. That's not gonNA come up here after the game. I think that's a fair exchange with US Angela. The flip side of that is too. It's like I wrote about this with letting my brother and I talked talked about our podcast which we did. We actually talked about this with the one that came out on Monday. And we've got another one coming out today with Alex Caruso Jumps to fourth and all star voting voting you re recorded emergency podcast It doesn't matter if Kouzmouk scores thirty-six Lebron eighty don't play we all know like in theory. He's a good score. And Yeah you train them to another trade of Sacramento trade him to Orlando Trade them somewhere where you know Minnesota whatever it is could he become a twenty point night guy. I I would. I would count it in the same way that I would say you. Trade Brandon Ingram. Yeah you could become an all star. It doesn't matter what these guys do. Where you trade them? What matters is what can you be here and the evidence right now? Is that Kuzma in this role doesn't work and the problem is yeah you could give him time to figure it out. But he's the only trade ship they have. They played another forty games of this and then he kind of struggles in the playoffs and he's not finishing finishing games. You know fourth quarters. He's on the bench like he was last night. Three telling you know what coaches think a player who's playing and win and Kuzina sat in that fourth quarter. So if if you get another you know forty something games plus the playoffs. And he's not now the he's the only real trade chip they have a now devalued so their long term from considerations here it's not just like instant like panicked reaction trading. cousy gotTa know whether or not you have a a rising asset or depressed asset. And you don't want wanted to be depressed. And it's tough to figure out Brian if he can fit alongside Lebron in a D if eighties not on the floor or if the bras on the floor. Or if when they're both out he goes thirty six. You believe Oh okay. Everything's fine here. You want to see him out there. Playing at a high level with the Lakers Ron. It's guys it's got to be. What does with these guys doesn't matter? It doesn't matter and can you figure that out before the deadline to get something four him or if you can't figure that out by the deadline and you have them in. That's what you're going with towards May and June. Is that what you do what you do. What do you do? That's what we'll ask next Sodano. Show Brian KAMINSKY LIONS FILL IN ESPN LA ESPN LA Branka. Manetzky a not indicates. He Austin and again I know but we did. We did a podcast today. So I'm just used to that intro slide from one thing to another. NFL lived in entire life together. We know yeah he was there. And what's here Steph. Curry and all star votes. Did you miss this. He is soaring up the Western Conference leaderboard among guards like the Eagle that he is now. I remember back in the day when you could punchout all-star votes before they went online. Yes I went with my buddy from high school to. Oh McDonald's and we tried to collect all to vote Bryant Reeves into the All Star game. This is our mission country. I must have punched out like six thousand. I was my favorite thing about going to baseball. Small Games when I was a Kid Punch Punch Punch find a cardinal punt hard on this movement for Brian Reeves. Right didn't make much headway now. It's inspiring that twenty five years later you can make some noise with Caruso in the All star voting. I'm just surprised on the steps of it. All because yes he hasn't played but staff has that that loyal following. And here's the thing it's a these are I think fraught times for our democracy and when you see Alex Carusi when you see America and the world quite frankly. This is a global event. Get together and say. Alex Caruso needs to be higher in the all-star. Let's let's do this. Democracy like it makes me feel better about the World January like he also tells me that people get it. If you're one of these people but the senator the All Star game then you can't have Alex Caruso there we talk about shut up. I hate you. What happens uh-huh if we all really get behind this and it really becomes a movement and he does not only pass Russ and Stein? He's fourth he's forth right now right. What if he's undeniably number one? Great make it go. The the media would see it's only voting's only fifty percent and then the media because we suck wouldn't and let him in the game now this to me is how Yao got in back in the days that Yao will give voted in because there was a right voting floating everything everything Joshua Pachulia rule when Joshua got when warriors fans just for on a whim and like probably hackers figured out how to do it. I wish this recall call. The primaries tried to the primaries I understand like we talk about all star Games like hall of fame and the guys get their bonuses a fine. I guess if if Alex Caruso gets in theoretically deserving what add another player if Alex Caruso got an out of fifteen I don't care we're talking about a game that is is like one hundred eighty eight two hundred eighty three where nobody plays defense until the fourth quarter where they pick teams at center court. It's like it's it's the all all started. It's a it is an exhibition. It is supposed to be fun and if you take this too seriously you suck and you're the problem I think Alex Caruso doesn't WanNa play any I'm sure he doesn't but that's an Alex Russo problem. He might love this. I've he's really uncomfortable. I'm sure he's uncomfortable. But I would imagine on some level he appreciates the love that Laker nation showing him in this part of the process. I think if you actually usually think about it and he had to parade himself out there in Chicago as an all star he would be miserable and mortified upset about but I will say the the it genuinely no. I think you're right and all in all seriousness. By the way the opinion that I'm talking about here is Michael. Thompsons Michael Thompson is the person who says he doesn't shouldn't be there. The sanctity of shut up Michael a national treasure otherwise but desperately wrong on this issue I will say though it is giving people an opportunity when you actually take a look at it Caruso a real basketball player I last week. At least I haven't looked at it this week number one in the NBA and fourth quarter plus minus Caruso. I wouldn't have brought it up otherwise that's but that's speaks volumes. I think to your Kyle Kuzma problem in the last segment. He sat on the Nice Nice win type back in. Because I'd forgotten what we tease. He sat on the bench in the fourth quarter. Last night. CRUSOE's clearly been playing a lot in the fourth quarter not to say that they're the same aim position or the same note or whatever but it shows you caruso down the stretch Vogel knows. He's one of my four. And if eighty and Lebron are healthy then all of a sudden you've got fewer spots for Kouzmin some nights you're gonNA play the big you know if you're GonNa have some you want Dwight on the floor next to you who whoever might be jovial. Very active There's no guarantee that WHO's GonNa play like that was in our head the death lineup. You get out there Lakers have their closing lineup with. AD playing small ball all center. Lebron of power forward Coosa three in whichever Danny Green in whichever guard you you pick. Oh and if it happens to be Caruso 'cause he's turned into this rape player right and I think Rhino Laker like analytics. honks like go back and look at it last year and we're maybe a little skeptical like the Avery Bradley. Signing people like me you go back into like Caruso had a really really positive effects small sample size certain things can't do kind of limited as a player he's bald. You know all of these. You Know Bald White Guy. You know there's all that in there but but he's a really effective player like I get it. You play fourth quarter minutes with Lebron in a D. Your plus minus should be pretty good on a thirty three win team Mo Williams Williams was an all-star ones playing Lebron. But you don't get to be first on that list a without being on the floor and be without making contributions. He's a real player. I thought for a long time he was the equivalent of when you graduate college and your friends. I'll have their first apartment. And they decide to have their twenty two twenty three years old and say let's have a dinner party and they make food and just that actor is the celebration of being like we did this as grown. We made food. You Eat the Burger the salad lettuce a couple of days. It's not good right. I for a long time. I thought Caruso was just like we made ate food. Wow He's an NBA player. He's his great story right. worked his way through all that but now I think he's a little more than that now. He's actually a delicious meal now. He's actually like wow. Maybe maybe you'd have a future in the restaurant business as you figure out your life. Twenty two year old is is that a that goes to the nickname. It's easy he's no longer the Bald Mama. He's now a delicious meal. He he really is Caruso. Does he have enough nutritional value to win a championship of health. No healthy champion. I think I think the guys. He's got a place now where he's going to play in this league for like ten years Corollas legit career so your question in about the best player championship team. Nobody you were worried about the last segment about. What's the long term with coups MMA? Can he fill this roll here to make them a championship team. Maybe I'm not as concerned about that if I have a delicious meal in front of me that that's I agree with you. We'd like the template we didn't do this. We'll do it now. We have to get back to this. Jose altuve stuff. Because it's so much fun if you've been if you if you've been a little short short on the The news today coming out of the Houston Astros cheating scandal. It's gotten really awesome so we'll make sure we get to that Soon but we will solve solve. This Kyle Kuzma problem next. Also want to remind you to be there live at the Great Western Forum. That's right the form on Saturday January. Twenty fifth for Bella Torch Store to thirty eight when Chris cyborg. One of the most successful mixed martial artists in history makes her ballots or debut against Baladora featherweight. Champion Julia Abud get your tickets. Now at ticketmaster Ben Lines. Brian Kamm in inskeep filling in for the Sodano man. That's right Giordano Donald Show. ESPN LA sound of of what the the Houston astras were doing in their dugout. It was bang right but the sound was from my George Sodano early. The Days in Miami like watching the sunrise psychically. He's he's still like turned into like one of the great deejays of South Florida. The right to nightclub in his house opened his house. Do you charge a cover for that. And he's saying all over the World Sugar Free Radio Radio Ronnie Siklie for those of you are not familiar with the Syracuse Center. Who went on to play for? Miami played New Jersey long distinguished career Solid in time in the eighties and nineties. When like big guys playing David Robinson every night and Kareem using real? Deal the real deal. He's now one of the biggest he gets house. deejays in the world. I've seen just chain smoking playing house music like I never saw him in Greece or anywhere. Like that it's only in Miami but yeah I love random like second axe for NBA players. The late great Wayman Tisdale had a great career playing the bass phenomenal. -sition I love second acts for athletes. That are just very different. Feeling he was probably pretty good while he was playing. You don't learn that when you're gonNA become like virtual go on. Yeah you're like every we even probably brought his base with him. Everywhere he went and like everybody L. Lobbies in Milwaukee when the Kings were on East Coast Road trip that women to jail just like held quaysides. They say it's like Milwaukee you find like like this guy plays over. Here's a concert pianist. You forget that sometimes you the just cause they devote their entire lives lives to one sport or like a lot of these guys are really good at every prodigies across everything. I think one of the slept on events of all star weekend that needs better placement and coverage is the talent show Turner. Does it on Saturday afternoon. Even know that was her and her does it on Saturday. A talent show how in show. It's not live live. It's all prerecorded segments that guys do some of them paint others play the piano others play the flute and they do it at Saturday Saturday at like three in the afternoon before all star Saturday night. I think there's needs to be a full on. MBA talent show. I think that should be overtime like instead of instead of actually playing an extra five minutes you have you got like two or three guys on your bench gotta be able to play a little bit but they also have to have like a talent talent. clean-cut Max deal because he can juggle right. Chainsaws beat that if you're a fourteenth guy who can like. I knocked down a three and has an act. Boris diaw could have extended his career with his knowledge of or just like you. The you know the ability to make like foam pictures on top of the army. So yeah I'm I'm all into that idea as a as a way brand Kaminsky Ben Lions filling in for Sodano with baseball. We Are we're we. Let's let's wrap up coups here for a second and then we'll get to cheat because the the Lakers is this. The only thing like we talked about on one of the categories for the mid season checkup was biggest disappointment. And you can come up with like you know avery. Bradley had a rough month. You know Rondo hasn't been great but like what were you expecting out of avery. Bradley and Rajon Rondo. Danny Green's been like okay. Hasn't he's has not been Toronto. Danny Green has been more like the last two or three years in San Antonio Danny Green relationship or understanding of what kind of player Danny Green is blurred. Because he's never average more than eleven points. A game right career. Because he's but he's Sean Forty five percents right but you know him of every May and June from hitting big shots and run game so you think I think maybe he's a little better than the act and he's been a huge reason that the team is a top five team defensively so it's like he's been okay you'd like to see that. Three point percentage above forty and. It's it's a weird like thirty nine. It's a weird thirty nine where he's like six for ten one night and like to for his next eleven and like this is not. Ah The only real disappointment on. This team is calculable like you can't. That's the only one. There's nowhere else to look everybody else's either doing exactly what you would expect them. MM do or you're like Hey Casey p Howard's white how young NBA player. He's loved by the crowd. The crowd owed loves Dwight. Howard think about that so every year you're right every single player office Angeles List? Yes every player on the team has performed as advertised or exceeded except for who's macos walkers and is that a big enough issue of concern or are you sitting here in January just nitpicking. Because they've been fantastic. have far outplayed. Everyone's expectation expectation even people who predicted them to win the championship. They've definitely outplayed expectations. Not that they'd be good eventually but like I thought they'd be good like Kinda rounding into form we'd be sitting here. We're halfway through going all right now. You know the First Fifteen Games twenty games just like everywhere. Lebron goes where it's new. And this is brandon. Eight Miami Online at eight Miami. CLEVELAND STRUGGLED CLEVELAND struggle. Last year. Up until you know right around the the trade the trade deadline. So it's like you sort of expected that it's GonNa take a little while they're not gonNA push to Harvard. You've got to keep lebrons aalto. Took a game. They lost their first game and killed people. Since that. Four game losing streak. They had a four game losing streak. They've lost eight times this year hardest. It's thirty forty. One Games in their four stat makes me say. Oh wow there there's something. Nice is the undefeated in back to backs. Yeah that's great road record. The road record was five times at home last night. First Time they lost to a team under five hundred all of this the discipline seriousness with which they take their games without making it like a grind. You go into the locker room in the locker room every game. It is not an unpleasant locking. The guys like each of the genuinely all this chemistry talk whether it matters that much in the end but I it's you can't quantify but they really do like each other like this is real stuff and so that part of it. It's been a surprise. It's so like this this this kouzmine thing it's also it's significant the only real place internally where you can look for improvement like if he plays like what he's supposed to and they're not bulletproof proof they're not the the warriors with all four their star players. It's not like you can just roll through the playoffs with this group. They've got real vulnerability so that's why people are so concerned concerned about Calculus Melissa in Los Angeles. It's because they're not unbeatable. They're just really really good. They have a formula for success. That's really good. That is provided them a lot of success. Now but you and I and I've talked about this with your brother is formula repeatable and sustainable. It's it's very dependent on Lebron. They are so so dependent on Lebron. Heavy that yes. That'll work. How Weird is at hand that work the whole how weird? It's strange to me at least that the entire NBA BA season comes could very well come down to whether or not the Lakers signed Darren Collison. Who's a good player? There's I mean he's a really legitimate good player. If Darren Darren Collison is in shape. Ready to play. Signs of the Lakers and can contribute something like Darren. Collison does near Dirksen and led the League like two years ago in three point. Forty six and a half percent if he's a solid shooter. Plays decent minutes. The Lakers go from terrible in those five five minutes a game. That Lebron doesn't play in every playoff game to average and that could be the difference between losing the Western Conference. Finals are losing in the finals and winning the whole. But it's really it's really a perfect storm if them signing a player out of retirement it's two of the top five players in the league being out for the season essentially which is wild this off and to their credit and taking advantage of every opportunity in front front of them is the perfect. Is the perfect storm going to sustain their formula for success high. She's I di- Lebron to the wheels fall well long term. You need help but this year. Yeah good So that actually works on a couple levels both the Bang Bang and in law and order news. Dick we'll get a check for that. I believe so. Let's talk so we're all familiar. Oh you're now by now with the the Houston Astros cheating. Sandal I am. There's a new wrinkle to yes that is wrong and Tackler wearable tech. It's gone from a highly just google carefully and not at work. Google Bang videos just saying and then look carefully before you click but you you know you can sort of see what the astros were doing. And how this works and all that kind of stuff in the banging on the trash cans and all that kind of stuff it has now evolved into accusations. 'cause Carlos Beltran left his job at the mets as manager of the mets because he was part of this scandal in Houston They let him go today. New York before he ever managed a game now someone claiming on twitter to be Carlos Beltran's niece says that she has the receipts basically that Jose Jose Altuva and Alex Bregman among others were wearing buzzers under their Jersey so that they would get a signal a buzz for an off speed pitch. No Buzz for fastball. Something like that now Jesse. If I'm understanding correctly that has now been debunked and people think it's a burner account of an actual a a major league baseball players. Yes I believe it was Gary Sheffield Junior. Who came came out and said that we are all getting played that that's some players burner? I don't think anybody really thought that was Carlos Beltran knew how how much we're getting having played. I'm not sure knows that it is Gary Sheffield Sun makes even more fun And now we're at a point now where people are dissecting every rebid if you've watched twittering just search for Jose Altuve it's spot shadows on his Jersey. It's all these other things tim running off-the-field after he hit that home run against the Yankees while his entire team is celebrating. He runs off the field to change in private into his like fancy shirt or whatever it is this is spectacular. What's crazy is in a weird sick twisted demented terrible way? It's exactly what baseball needs right right now to stay relevant here we are championship week in the NFL the NBA season. Today say starts after Christmas and yes. Baseball is the topic of conversation conversation for all the wrong reasons right. However it's making the baseball top of mind? I wish I would normally agree with you. That like it's good good to have people manager. What should the Red Sox to should there be a punishment? What are we doing moving forward collectively the culture? The game the history of the game. The game was. We're talking baseball now. That's true I think I am not one of these people who like Alex would for example. Recently resigned dodgers pitcher. Alex would tweet it Out and he's exactly right. I would rather face a guy on the Roy diest of royds. He didn't use that expression rather face. A steroid guy every time time than somebody who knew what pitch was coming really. Oh is the competitive advantage of there is. It's not even close. It's not comparable because knowing if you knowingly knowing the fastball is coming when you might guess curve balls coming you know asphalt it allows makes more of an advantage. No Pham Quest West Eighty pounds heavier because he stood out a swing. I can still fool you with a pitch now. If I don't fool you that pitch is going to go forty feet farther it it might be. The exit velocity might be a little bit bigger. But if you know what pitch is coming first of all if you don't WanNa you don't WanNa swing it off you go watch the Bang Bang Video. You could say off speed pitch catch. Just let it go. I don't WanNA swing. It ought to be pitch if you know that. The best advantage in baseball is knowing a fastball. is coming the one that isn't going to move so crazy for me. I had no problem with the camera work and the Bang Bang in the stealing of the signs that way. Because I think if you walk out of the clubhouse you are on the field of play so we know now that your be able to video someone from the upper deck right into the DUGOUT. A Fan Fan could do it. The team could do. It doesn't the point of Signs is to convey information in secret. I say this all the time. James Cameron invented language for the movie avatar language obviously curriculum. I believe that The the what's the what's the one that the on the people who speak Klingon there's now. The game of thrones language that Kalisa speak like you learned that on duo lingo. I'm not kidding you can actually learn that stuff. I've covered ten kamikazes. I've met people who are bilingual. Woah languages so if you can handle all of you can't tell the guy to throw a curveball in the seventh inning without it being stolen invents better jets gets that black wearable technology when you're now wearing something on your body let that's buzzing you. That's yeah that's crazy to me that's turn you into a robot. Well it's just it takes the cheating rather I don't agree with you. There are certain things problem with the cameras in the film. The third base. It's called film the Guy in the dugout right and we're conveniently with the only way really to do it fast enough to convey the stuff is to use technology and chief that way and so like the I get you guys WanNa steroids you know I don't. I don't think I'm actually one of these people who don't like I'm and I'm not saying I'm pro like everybody should do it. But I'm just saying like I am less of a moralist about the steroid thing because ultimately I think what it does more more than anything is allows you to play more games. You recover faster. You're able to get back on the field. Hit the ball farther. Whatever this is horrible? It's not a horrible horrible. It's horrible because the problem with steroids is the best players in baseball going to get the best steroids in theory. It's the purest bests scientist. Best actress the best stuff or like the best actors. Get the best steroids right. So it's the kid who sixteen all trying to make his varsity team who's GonNa take steroids royds because he sees his favorite player has not condoning this trickle down effect talk after children on me. Did you just pulled over. Because it's not about the best guys take the stuff and let me know. Six hundred seven. Ten Ben Lines turned to think of the children for his stuff. That's where ions into play. I'm not let's I'd say it's a good idea. I'm just saying for like just looking all. I'm fine with the cheating. Talking about Major League. Baseball in the affected has inside the game. In whatever like I I actually think it's especially when everyone's doing it sort of relatively minimal because it's all relative. This is different. This is like this. This would be like in football the niners this weekend literally no every now because they read the formations would be. Somebody tells them what play is coming like. That's what's happening here. Like they know Aaron Rodgers. Don't worry it's a play fake. It's they're not going to handle all their Jones. It's a play fake Davante Adams going down the seem like that's what this is like. You know the information before it gets the competitive advantage of knowing the pitch if you're the hitter is massive and so that changes the sort of the balance of the fairness of the game in ways that steroids. I don't like it's way worse steroids. You still gotta hit the ball to throw the ball. You're more likely to be able to be on the field do it. And not well eventually unsually breakdown. Yeah but it. Also that fits turns yet turns guys who are on the borderline of playing a dodger stadium or playing in Sioux. It Falls Idaho on fair. It's not right but it's from a competitive more hurts player to player in that thing that you're talking talking about that actually impacts the play of the game if you understand the distinction distinction. I'm making like we're both guys trying to get in. You know triple A.. Trying to get in the league you you take steroids. I don't I'm getting screwed. You're getting an advantage. But then once I got the advantage on in the league now playing alongside the outcome of the game is it might make you blow. The Oakland. A.'s went to three world series in a row in eighty eight eighty nine ninety and they had the lineup of McGuire. Might of maybe might've been some steroids. I will get back to more crime stick on crime crime it happens when locker room MHM celebrations at the national title game. Get a little too zealous. Somebody got somebody has a warrant out for their arrest because of that will tell you it is next brand Chemnitz. He'd been lines filling in for Sodano. ESPN elect yeah. Pick the wrong time. We're taking vitamin chicken. Chicken chicken chicken lot going on with chicken in these days. Brian Wow where where do we begin. I don't think I Osu Ben Franklin. NC Ben lines fill in for Saddam. When you say don't get me started on chicken that sounds to me like you want me to get us? Chicken rant reading. Here's well here's here's here's sort of my take on chicken and it's why I don't WanNa to get started on it. Okay Okay Brian. Hello Second. Here's my take on chicken Might be favorite sentence. Member went Steve Mason. Jason had one of his famous holiday parties every year. There's a theme. Here's your pizza pizza this year for one year. It was chips whereas the Chitter chatter the party. Some taking a piece. I take an uber ride home from the chip party. And we're talking about the party and how many chips there are. Something like that. And the Uber Uber Drivers. I hear you guys talking about chips in this pretty well you did you happen to come from the Steve Mason Chris Party I heard so we're like yeah we we did. And then somehow chicken comes up and my wife talks about where these chickens coming from hormone-free cage free this then this guy was talking. It's kind of like doesn't matter we're chickens and then I got a tweet from the guys uber driver in La. Who's driving me around saying got got BEN LINES IN MY UBER from the Steve Mason Chip Party? Don't get his wife talking about chicken right so I I I'm telling you you don't you don't want us to go down the road talking chicken. Don't there's a lot going on with chicken these days call shanking. Yeah you do need to take i. It's delicious I my chicken. Chicken came from sprouts. That's sprouts check. Good that's a good place to get checked if they had a Bogo logo they they just opened the sprouts right next door houses with like four minute walks. Awesome sprouts. It sprouts on top target on the bottom. Get everything you need America So you know there's more than the the the The lawlessness extends not just from baseball. We'll get back to that Soon because I this hotel to thing is just the greatest Odell Beckham junior after Monday night's national title game has been a bigger story worry than the actual Lsu Tigers who played in this game. It's started with and this was a kind of a thing where they were. E was doing the the the handshake the cash handshake with A few guys on TV Just Jefferson and Johnny Kirkland Lynn. There too wide receivers and Joe Borough got a little handshake and all that and initially LSU was saying that it was novelty money. Fake money money. I don't think anybody L. Beckham Junior's walking around Bourbon Street with fake money. Yeah that I don't think anybody bought it. Turns out Joe Borough confirmed firmed today that it was in fact real money and he got some as he said. I'm not a student athlete anymore. So I can tell the truth. It was real money. This is one of those deals is where I am of two minds on the one hand I kind of don't mind people handing college athletes money after a job. Well done. They don't don't get paid like with the confetti coming down or clearly making a political statement of some kind or social ad these guys are GonNa get bonuses and is that the the the the the kids other than the the swag that comes from the game in a national title ring or whatever it is. They don't get any of that so somebody I don't know how much jober borough there's only limit as to how much you can handshake. Somebody's got big hands. Their point out one hundred dollars bill. It's actually I'm not a big Odell Fan Fan. I kind of felt that I liked seeing him down there doing that. Because it just shines a light on what a broken since the whole NCAA. Okay so that part of it fine. I'm pulled in one direction. The other part of that though is like it's almost for the same reason you're wearing the watch when you go out under the I don't don't like I. There's probably done them. I don't like people who go out of their way to be provocative go out of their way to provoke and get attention and then get get upset when people don't like the provocation Russell. Westbrook is like yes you know. Why don't you guys pay attention to why you always looking at me while you pay because you're constantly gently doing things that scream look at me if you're Odell Beckham Junior Star wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns in Lsu alum? You don't think anybody's GonNa notice you on the field handing money to people. I think he'd be no he knew people. Okay but don't indicate some people would have a problem with it saying it's taking the attention from the players in that moment. I don't care I it's my thing is when these guys can cause with the watch thing for example view Beckham was like why is everybody picking them. It's like because you're wearing like you're going out of your way to make sure everybody knows you're wearing like a fifty thousand dollar watch during warmups like it's obnoxious definitely not fifty thousand or whatever it is or five hundred thousand whatever that watch very expensive watch today. It got even bigger for Odell Beckham junior a warrant orit. Ben Is out for his arrest in New Orleans because videos now service Beckham junior slapping the Turkish of a security guard inside the LSU locker room after the game. And now he's there's a warrant out for Simple battery I believe. Aw Security Guard or police security security security g go to go and you could find is all over the Internet you go and you could defined what happened was the security guy is He's talking to one of the planet on the witch player. It is who is smoking a cigar car and the guys would put that out. You know. It's so God there's there's smoking inside the building right so security guards being a little over zealous you might argue and is like you got to put that out whatever and so. He's talking to this player. Who Know Beckham? Junior comes up behind. The Guy and slaps slaps him on the air. There's nothing it's there's no like. It's not wasn't an accident it was kind of like first of all. I don't know if he realized if it was in the security guard or an actual cop so you can see the look of. I probably shouldn't have done. That shouldn't have done it. And then it's mixed with. Oh wait a minute. I think think that's a security guard and not a calm. And then he kind of looks like he starts making fun of the Dude and and an entitlement mm-hmm and dark energy and it's one also I think Odell had a couple of POPs during the day. I would guess that are receiver when the season's over. He's no longer in the playoffs. They're down in New Orleans. I saw video of him with Carl Malone on the field and he's doing post up moves in bouncing around and jumping around with the mailman. Yeah I'm just like I'm disappointed. People who are saying that Odell should not be held accountable for slapping security guard art. I see why why why did you. It's one of these wizards entitled behavior. It's just so what childish embarrassing okay. Why is one one wise one entitled and on the other? When don't tell me that? What do you mean what? Why is the handling-wise making yourself kind of the center of attention like thing with the handing out the money knowing you're gonNA cause trouble for your university that you supposedly love? Why is that not entitled behavior but slapping the Security Guard is talk about that next? Brian Kaminsky Ben. Lyons E._S._p._N. L._A..

The biography of Marilyn Monroe Gladys Monroe. Gladys Monroe was born to Elmer Monroe and Ella Mae Hogan in nineteen. Oh Two when she was seven years old her father died due to an infection that destroyed his brain tissue after her father's death hoping to find a husband her mother had relationships with several men but none of them lasted. Due to her mother's inconsistent relationships and responsible behaviour. Young Gladys never really understood the importance of men and the role of women in marriage. Moreover, since she lacked a father figure, she grew up craving attention from older men. So when she was fourteen years old, she claimed that she was eighteen years old and married at twenty six year old man call. John Newton Baker. However. After giving birth to a son and a daughter, the demands of Motherhood tired her moreover, gladys had no desire to be a conventional housewife. So she would often leave her children in the care of her neighbors and go dancing and partying. As time progressed, gladys couldn't stand being held down by the clutches of the family anymore she wanted to be free. So in Nineteen, twenty, one, she filed for a divorce two years later, the divorce was granted and her husband took their children with him. Gladys like the new carefree life which was devoid of a husband or kids she often went on dates and had a good time with men. Several years later when she was twenty two years, old gladys was attracted to a twenty seven year old man called Martin Edward. Mortenson, he had a stable job was generous handsome and look five years older than his current age. So she married him however being a traditional housewife was something that was too boring for gladys. Therefore, just four months after their marriage she left her husband. Almost, ten months after gladys left Mortenson she found out that she was pregnant as a result of the pregnancy. She gave birth to a baby girl on June. First. Nineteen Twenty six in Los Angeles. However since gladys had been with several men after leaving Mortenson she, herself was not sure who the father was. The child's father was most probably a womanizer called Charles Stanley Gifford. Charles Stanley. Gifford was a CO worker with whom gladys had a brief affair. However, he abandoned her after finding out that she had gotten pregnant. Since. She did not know who the father was and also because she was still not divorced from Mortensen, she named the Child is Norma. Jeane. Mortenson. The child was also called Norma Jeane Baker sometimes taking the last name of Gladys's first husband. This child would grow up and later revolutionized Hollywood by the name of Marilyn Monroe. Gene and the. First. Foster family. Gladys had no one who can help her financially so she couldn't quit her job moreover, she knew that she couldn't be a good mother due to her lifestyle. She was also scared of the responsibility of caring for a child therefore when normal was just two weeks old gladys left her in the care of a foster family living only sixteen miles away. She paid the family twenty five dollars every week to take care of Norma. Even though several children were fostered by the Family Norma lived there for the longest time she lived there for the first six years of her life. During this time, the foster family took care of norma properly. They even let her keep puppy which she brought home as long as she took care of it. Moreover Gladys visited normal on weekends and took her for picnics and outings they would ride trams tour glass factories, go to the beach and eat ice cream yet norma was disturbed emotionally because gladys visits got less frequent and norm did not know when gladys might stop visiting her. As a child norma was always confused, the reason for the confusion is not hard to imagine. She saw other children addressing their parents as mother and father. So she didn't understand why her foster parents forced her to call them, uncle and aunt. Understand that gladys was her real mother and her foster parents were just taking care of her to her gladys was just a fun lady who visited her often and took her to outings. When Norma turned seven an angry neighbor shot and killed her dog because it was barking loudly this caused a lot of pain to the little girl. So unable to console the little girl, the foster family summoned her mother gladys. Norma Jean and gladys. Gladys helped her bury the dog and took norma to live with her to norma living with gladys was a new experience. Her foster parents were religious in highly disciplined. They did not approve of norm watching movies on the other hand gladys worked in the film industry in Los. Angeles. To create the final version of the edited film, She often took norma to watch movies normal would sit in the first row and watch the movies on the big screen with all. Gladys. Often drank and danced with her friends on weekends after Gladys was done. Drinking and dancing little normal often emptied the beer bottles that her mother drank and filled them with flowers from the garden. Even though gladys was not a great role model, she tried her best to take care of normal as normal was slowly getting adapted to living with her mother everything changed suddenly. All her life gladys had thought that her mother and father had died because of madness in the year nineteen, thirty four due to the economic depression and other reasons her grandfather took his own life. Even though she did not know her grandfather personally, this made gladys believed that mental illness runs in her family. So she was convinced that she will become a lunatic as well. This pushed her into depression due to the depression and the false belief she started hallucinating often she had difficulty in distinguishing between what is real and what isn't as a result in the year nineteen, thirty, four gladys was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. She spent the rest of her life in and out of care homes and hospitals. Norma Jean and grace. Since, Gladys was deemed incapable of caring for her daughter anymore, Norma was sent to live with different sets of people for short durations and even some orphanages but primarily, she spent lived with the family of Grace McKee and their relatives grace McKee is the most important friend and confidante of Gladys. She decided to take care of Norma after Gladys became ill grace did not have any children of her own. So she considered Norma's her daughter therefore even when norma was living with some other foster family, she visited normal often. Grace. Thought Norma was really beautiful and would become an actress Sunday. So she taught normally address properly and take care of herself so that she appears gorgeous all the time grace would later become a big influence in the life of Norma. Growing up norma could never get the parental love that she needed. Moreover, she had to change constantly so that she could please her family at first. She thought her foster mother was her biological mother who told that watching movies was a sin and instead she should spend her time praying to God. Then she adapted to living with her biological mother who took her to movies and showed that watching movies wasn't ascend after. Her mother fell ill grace came into her life and wanted her to act in the same movies which he wants thought was ascend thus at different points in her life people whom she loved forced different beliefs into her which directly conflicted with current beliefs. Moreover, none of those people whom she loved stayed with her until she became an adult. So Little Norma grew up not knowing what to believe and whom to trust. In addition to that, after her mother fell ill norma had to move from one foster family to the next and was also sexually abused. All these incidents left a permanent scar on her mental wellbeing. As a result, she developed a stutter and became shy because of the trauma. Norma Jeane Marilyn Monroe. When normal was sixteen years old the family of grace with whom was living at that time decided to move to West. Virginia. But they couldn't afford to take norma with them even though grace had promised norma that she wouldn't have to feel insecure again she went back on her word this devastated. And she felt like dispensable object once again. Since grace and her family were moving to another town. Grace decided to get norma married to her neighbours son whom she was dating at that time since the only alternative was to stay in an orphanage until the age of eighteen norma agreed to the marriage. So in nineteen forty to the sixteen year old Norma Jeane Mortenson quit school and married the twenty one year old James Dougherty. After their marriage, they moved to Santa Catalina Island where her husband was stationed during the Second World War, Maryland, later described this marriage as mundane after a year of living with her husband Norma came to live with her mother in law when her husband was posted to the Pacific. Norman mother-in-law was working in Radio Plane Company as a nurse. At that time, the defense sectors were booming due to the second world. War. So Norma's mother-in-law could easily get a job for Norman. The Same Company Norma's task was to spray varnish on the fuselage fabric. Then nineteen forty four photographers came to the Radio Plane Company to shoot pictures of the most beautiful female factory workers for commercials and military magazines. Their task was to portray to the nation that America's loveliest ladies showed their patriotism by working in defense companies. One of these photographers named David Kahn over who had powerful contacts was impressed by Norma. He advised her that she would have a great future if she got into modelling heating to his advice norm quitter job the following year she began doing modeling shoots for him and his other photographer friends. Gradually Norma started applying to modeling agencies one of these agencies called the Blue Book Modeling Agency accepted her she signed her first contract with them in nineteen forty five. Within a year Maryland had appeared in more than thirty magazine covers and was called one of the most hard working models by the owner of her agency. Her figure was more suitable for print advertisements than modeling. So she began focusing on these magazines. However, her husband was not pleased with this development in her career. He wanted her to quit modeling and become a housewife. So Norma who wanted to continue her profession divorced him in the year nineteen, forty six. In the same year, she met Ben Lyon who was working with Fox production company. They signed a contract for six months with her even though she didn't impress the head executive of the company but Lyon didn't want an actress who was called Norma Jean dougherty her name was plain and unattractive. So Norma chose to have the last name Monroe since it was the name of her mother's family but Norma Jean, Munro was still not attractive. So lion remembering an actress called Maryland Miller with whom he had fallen in love previously suggested that she should take the name of Marilyn Monroe and just like that the famous Marilyn Monroe was born. The rise to fame. For the first six months after signing her contract Maryland did not do any films she only worked on her acting and dancing skills. She got into an acting school with the help of the studio she worked with and met many people to promote herself. She got her first small role in the film dangerous years in nineteen, forty seven however per contract was not renewed that year since the teachers at the acting school said, she was too shy to be a successful actor. So, Maryland went back to modeling. She started working as a backup dancer while continuing to take acting lessons she did everything she had to do so that she could get acting roles this involved befriending influential people in the industry and entertaining them at her home. One such friendship with a Fox executive helped her get a contract with Columbia pictures in nineteen, forty eight. Lost that contract a year later as her picture didn't work that. Well. So she again went back to modeling and started some semi-naked shots to as she was comfortable with nudity her big break came in the year nineteen fifty when she earned a seven year contract with Twentieth Century Fox studios after a series of small acting parts in movies like the fireable right cross all about eve and the ask for just. She got great reviews for the asphalt jungle and even critics praised her however even though her profession was finally taking off to great heights, she was emotionally devastated due to an unfortunate incident, her mentor and Partner Johnny High who got her these parts in the contracts died of a heart attack days after she signed the contract this left her shattered and scarred for the rest of her life. The nineteen forty-nine Maryland posed for a series of nude photographs. These photographs surfaced in the year nineteen, fifty two and threatened to put a dent on her career. Her production studio did not want them to affect her reputation. So they thought it would be better if Maryland admitted to being the model in the photographs and told that she was broke and she did that photo shoot only for some instant money this strategy worked well as a result Maryland gained a lot of public sympathy from the scandal at the same time she also became. Popular for her sex symbol image rather than her acting skills, her next films did well but all these films that are typecast it and blonde bombshell roles that demanded semi nudity and suggestive clothes. Maryland enjoyed this popularity and added fuel to it by turning up revealing clothes on public forums and sharing sexy amusing facts about her to public columnists in December nineteen fifty-three Hugh hefner published one of her nude photos as the centers spread of the first copy of playboy this added to her already soaring popularity as the leading sex symbol of Hollywood. After a series of highly successful films as a blonde sex symbol Maryland wanted to do some serious roles but the Twentieth Century Fox studios did not agree to it as they thought that serious films would not do well after many discussions, Maryland refused to shoot for another such movie. So they suspended her and canceled her contract. Maryland wanted to stop this negative publicity from ruining her career. So she married the baseball star Joe Dimaggio and started traveling the world with him. She reunited with Fox studios a few months later and was promised a lead role in what would go on to become one of the biggest movies of her career. The seven year itch she started filming for the film in Nineteen, fifty, four, it was released in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, it features the immensely popular subway great scene in which Maryland can be seen standing on the subway. Great with the skirt flying up this scene would later become so famous that it would be featured in many magazines and films even decades after her death. Ironically. Her unscreened success ended her marriage with Joe. Maryland later claimed that Joe was physically abusive and had a controlling behavior. She filed for divorce but continue to relationship with Joe along with affairs with Arthur, Miller, and Marlon Brando during this period. After her contract with Fox studios ended Maryland along with photographer Milton Green founded the Marilyn Monroe productions she began studying, acting and started using psychoanalysis to address her personal traumas. Even, though she had her own production studio, her production studio could not produce films on its own. So Maryland reunited with Fox studios yet again, after an intense legal battle, she signed a seven year contract with them with four big films. The nineteen fifty six Maryland married Arthur Miller despite the FBI pursuing a case against him she began shooting for bus stop under Fox studios, which went on to become a commercial success. Maryland. Received a Golden Globe award for best actress for her role in the film and was finally recognized as an actress instead of justice sex symbol. She completed one more film under her own banner after this then she took an eighteen months hiatus from shooting to concentrate on her family life. She suffered a miscarriage anik topic pregnancy during that period. So she started taking pharmaceutical drugs to overcome her emotional depression she and Miller finally got divorced in the year nineteen, sixty one. After this Maryland resumed shooting on and off for films but she did not get a commercial hit despite posing nude for publicity stunt for the movie something's got to give. She was also involved in many legal battles with Fox studios over the delay in shooting. This gave her negative publicity in the final months of her life. Final years. Then, the last years of her life Marilyn. Monroe was battling depression caused by three failed marriages miscarriages a lost job, and the belief that mental illness runs in her family. The same belief that drove her mother mad. She also suffered from anxiety and low self esteem caused due to the lack of parental love when she was a child, the search for her father also devastated or terribly while she was living with her mother, the eight year old Maryland found a picture of Charles. Stanley Gifford the man who was. Most, probably, her father and her later years, she would try to reach him without any success. She would spend a lifetime trying to find this man and others which affected a relationship with men. Once when she called him in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, two, he told her that he didn't have anything to say to her and she should call his lawyer instead this completely apathetic reply from the man whom she believed to be her father crushed her emotionally all her life she never stopped hoping for his approval. Marilyn Monroe died on the night of August Fifth Nineteen, sixty two when she was just thirty six years old Maryland's housekeeper and her psychiatrist found her dead in her room due to drug overdose. In the following years her fans introduced many conspiracy theories and murder intentions but police ruled them all out. Her sudden death became a national sensation. It was later revealed that Maryland had overdosed on barbiturates a drug used to treat anxiety insomnia and depression in the nineteen sixties. Fact you probably didn't know. Maryland had a fear of losing her mind and going mad as her mother and grandmother did. She stuttered on occasions and the stuttering continued for the rest of her life. Maryland attempted suicide in nineteen fifty after her partner agent and close confidante. Johnny high died she attempted suicide once again when she miscarried and had an ectopic pregnancy. According to her co-stars Maryland was extremely difficult to work with. She was even fired from her last film due to her lack of punctuality and erratic shooting schedule. Marilyn Monroe's house where she died in nineteen sixty two was purchased by a couple. The couple later found that the house was bug and an elaborate government phone-tapping system was found across the house. We hope that this biography of Marilyn Monroe helped you learn about the actor and how she became a world renowned personality whenever you have trouble making a decision think about Marilyn Monroe if she hadn't made the decision to divorce her first husband and pursue modelling, she could have raised a family and lead a happy life on the other hand.

Chapter Three: A Star Is Born

"I think that the mixture of the darkness and the light is part of her mystique and part of our lore war because although she's giving pleasure you also want to be a friend or you also want to protect her and comes from the different kind of sparks. She was giving out hello and welcome to the third part of the killing of marilyn monroe. I'm jackie moran in this chapter. We're going to examine how maryland finally escaped the the life of poverty abuse and abandonment she was born into and how she wasn't averse to using whatever weapons were in her formidable armory to help achieve her dream of making it a big in tinseltown with spectacular effect. It'd be showbusiness luke. They don't i mean girls around backstage with nothing on your goodwill and nobody even turn his head. The same girl we'll address walks clerk's office pinched black and blue. What's a few people anyway anyway. In late nineteen forty four the eighteen year old maryland or norma jean dougherty as she was still then have been discovered by photographer david conover while working got a factory when he came to shoot morale-boosting pictures to help the war effort the effect was instant and astonishing charles castillo entertainment journalist and author of marilyn monroe the private life of public icon explains it was like the camera loved her and something came across that wasn't coming across and other models was that he was shooting and he said to her you can be a professional model and of course someone who wanted to be known as beautiful and wanted to be desired that might be her ticket so she pursued it and he helped her he introduced her to people and she got with a modeling agency was called the blue book modeling agency norma jean signed up as a model but at first the blonde bombshell that we know today was marketed as someone rather different evelyn snively owner of the agency remembers maryland as that girl next door he was a clean shining pleasant expressive face little girl. We said the girl next door type and she was wearing a little white dress. You wouldn't necessarily we're this on a photographic job. It was clean and white and ironed in shining she was but she had a great deal of expression and she was very surprised. I believe to be in the ambassador hotel where my office was. I looked at the board of cover girls and said ovo girls are so pretty but i thought what a wonderful little doll. She would be on a cover some day in front of the camera lens norma jean the one time withdrawn troubled foster child and teen bride was blossoming and as she grew in confidence as a model so the more her thoughts reach beyond simply pictures in magazines. Here's danforth. Prince publisher of marilyn at rainbow's end sex lies murder and the great cover up. There's almost a magic kind of charisma that she had. Nobody could quite figure it out and so there's magic. No one ever quite knew what it was. Call it a psychotic sides. Kids would desperate personality. If you call it a schizophrenic manic depressive manifestation of glamour nobody's ever been able to define it but they all agree that she you was a magic woman with a magic he started appearing on covers and people like howard hughes were noticing her so that it eventually intially became obvious that she needed to at least check out the possibly being a movie star because she was getting such great impact from her work as a model and being on the cover. There's so many magazines at first however it seemed hollywood was blind to marilyn's particular brand of magic. Here's lowest banner. Marilyn's career got off a to a bumpy start. She had a short contract at twentieth century fox and she had a couple walk on roles which would be you know one in wine and that would be it and she was dropped from her contract she wasn't she she just wasn't catching on for some reason and then she you got a six month contract at columbia pictures and that is where she makes her first starring appearance. It's a b-movie called committees of the chorus and she plays a show girl and that it's kind of a silly movie and her contract columbia isn't renewed either uh off in teaching me stress patel sent when we have not she really didn't do many movies in this early period in fact hardly any at all and she was fired after six months daryl zanuck who ran fox like a dictator simply didn't like her and he could do anything he wanted and then she was picked up by columbia pictures pictures for a while and then eventually worked a little bit for metro-goldwyn-mayer she had the distinction of being fired by all of hollywood cop studios before you're she finally got back to fox hollywood at that time was not the place it is today for a pretty girl desperate for a big break. There was another means of getting unnoticed by the men who mattered maryland had always been so willing to behead for a casting couch to get apart but also very promiscuous and very willing to sleep with people to be with hollywood producers and power people in hollywood. That's very very well documented in many many biographies of barrel monroe and days before feminism many decades before me to the movie industry was mostly run by men. There was very few new female executives casting agents so it was a male dominated industry and with that kind of power corruption comes in and so a lot out of the young struggling starlets who would do anything to have a break would fall victim to the casting couch. I think it was claudette. Colbert the actress from from the forties who said every actress who made it as a star at one time or another had to go through the casting couch system. It seems almost unthinkable now but back in the nineteen forties and fifties top studio bosses would treat these wannabe starlets as little more than attractive playthings do things there to do whatever please them and handed around like so many pieces of meat. Here's johnny russo. He was in the film the godfather and was also a friend of maryland's yeah so it's like obviously that's how i think. She thought she had to become a song was please. All these guys make took advantage of this so many hollywood stars if it was in the metoo movement like it is here now every every big producer the vanik brothers auto. They won't be be gone but that's what was those days casting couch festival which was wrong would happen with marilyn. They used to have these men. These executives used to have parties like polka parties and drinking parties disregard in the cards and they would have their cool party girls starlets from the studio would come to these parties and they would fill up the glasses an empty the ashtrays and just stand on the sidelines and be ornamental to the party and when when an executive saw one that he liked he would promise her the moon promise for contract promise her screen test and that might be their ticket more often than not it wasn't maryland marla may have been willing to play the game in order to get noticed by the right men but even then she was nobody's fool and although she was not averse to using her beauty and sex appeal to her advantage vantage as she had as a teenager when she saw modeling as a way to get out of her lonely childhood and hasty marriage. She was also prepared to draw the line when she had to. There's one distinction between marilyn monroe ambitious starlet of the day if she didn't genuinely liked the guy she didn't go with their war men that made passes at at her or promised her things that she just didn't like one of these men was harry. Cohn legendary and notoriously lecherous head of columbia pictures colin made a pass at her and promised her a lot of favors and she was in his office and he said i'd like to invite you out on my yacht for this weekend weekend and marilyn. She didn't see that he was a good person. She saw that he was just use. The word coast comes to mind. She was sleeping and she said oh i would i love to come on your yacht. Mr colin and i'm so looking forward to meeting your wife and he was furious. Because of course his wife wasn't invited for the weekend. He's one of the executives at dropped her from from the studio because she'll put out for norma. Jean may have been struggling to find any traction in hollywood hollywood but so determined was she to make it in the movies. She cut off all ties to her past. She divorced doherty would always been against her having a career and soon after receiving her first. I contract with paramount changed her name. Norma jean dougherty was no more marilyn monroe had been born. The name maryland comes from the twentieth. The century fox executive named ben lyon. He liked the name maryland because in his younger days when he was an after he dated a woman named marilyn miller who was an actress so maryland was the first name and maryland herself chose the last name monroe because that was her mother gladys's maiden name she she had never used the name monroe and her real life so i think this was her way of connecting with her biological family. In this long lost interview james daugherty the man she had been married to just weeks after her sixteenth. Birthday remembers the moment. He lost his wife to hollywood with my why i loved her is a movie star marilyn monroe. You never met when marilyn monroe became in maryland role and there were no more than that my life. I could have never been mr munro. Just go away right. I i did my educator my she said no. I ain't alike home winter golden there although maryland's career to this point have been limited to bit parts as a non speaking waitress nineteen forty seven dangerous years and a single line in the following year scudder who scuttle hey she was slowly getting noticed by the people that mattered the first of these as was twentieth century fox president joe shank some fifty years her senior and joe's gang fell head over heels madly now i don't j. he run to occur indulge jack but he would invite her to come to his partner his house every night and then and she would sit opposite him before a big roaring fire and he would just enjoy looking and sometimes cooper yeah will run through vanni. He made contacts. We tried to help. He was fond of her but it wasn't enough to get her to. The next level of movie movie stardom that came from a manning johnny johnny hyde was vice president of the william morris talent agency they represented all of the biggest names in the industry and as such johnny was one of the most important and influential men in hollywood. When he saw marilyn he immediately became obsessed with her in a professional sense cents because he could see the star quality in the young actress that few others at that time could but also on a personal level johnny hyde was with william william morris agency which is the top talent agency in hollywood and he literally matter and fell in love with her so he was there fighting for her very very hard to get roles in film and really really working on the sideline to help her with her career maryland became hides protege and also despite right there thirty one year age gap and the fact that he was married his lover johnny. I'd literally fell completely in love with her and he would do anything more. Her key truly became obsessed with her. She became the obsession of his life. He left his wife and children to devote himself. Exclusively to her obsessed he might have been but johnny was as good as his word when it came to helping her career and unlike those other executives he genuinely believed in maryland's ability to become hollywood star. I always say that if marilyn had not met johnny hide her courier probably wouldn't have been what it was he would call producers first and say i've got a girl. I want you to see she's phenomenal. She's the next big star and there was a who who is it and he would say marilyn monroe off. We know we saw that blonde already. Johnny hyde would say see her again. Take another look in may may nineteen forty nine with film roles still proving elusive maryland took on another job. Something johnny hyde hadn't swum for her here. She is later talking about what would become the most famous nude photo shoot in history. Kelly has asked is done. Some fear has prepared for his ass capoche news so i always round things and then so far the rent four weeks soon i think so i called recognized. He said i flagged twelve twelve at night and don't have any helpers to put some lies so we did it. That's always does spread housing reg delvis. He's had me down in such put some lotion on u._s._a. Messages he's very i simple news was this just another example of men exploiting maryland for their own interests or was it maryland playing them at their own game either way within within a year of that nude photo shoot maryland was to finally get her big break. Thanks in no small part to the persistence of johnny hyde. He got her to very very important. Important roles in nineteen fifty that changed the course of her career. One was all about eve which was an all star cast with bette davis and celeste holm and am baxter. She didn't have a big part but she had a showy part and crucial and it would stand out. She was terrific at it and then he got another part part in a movie called the asphalt jungle which was another big hit of nineteen fifty again a small part. She played the mistress of big time gangster and she only had a few scenes. The people walked out of the theater. They walked out saying who is that blonde in one thousand nine hundred fifty one all about eve received a record fourteen academy adamy award nominations it won six including best picture and the asphalt jungle also bagged four academy award nominations and suddenly maryland was in the two most talked about movies of the year. Here's president of the marilyn monroe fan club greg schreiner and there was so many studios in so many movies being made and maryland was incredibly beautiful so that already was foot in the door and then as she started being noticed by fans and started getting more and more fan mail the studio's really took notice of that and started giving your bigger and bigger pictures and i think that yes of course it's always hard to become a movie star and there were thousands and thousands thousands of women who tried to the same thing maryland et and they did succeed but somehow maryland had a certain flesh impact on the screen that they didn't have and she got noticed and they didn't and because of that she became the star shoes and this is where we see maryland's career starts to take off. These rules really resecure her place in hollywood. He also gets her a seven year contract at twentieth century fox so she guaranteed some sort of income for the next six seven years for tragically however in december nineteen fifty just a few days after she signed the contract. Johnny died of a heart attack. Marilyn was devastated have stated johnny hyde would have protected her and her career and steered it in different directions but he died. He was a sick man. They met he had a heart ailment so right at this crucial point he he died but he had done enough for her that she was already now becoming talked about ali. Finally the studios had caught onto what johnny fine had known from the moment he saw maryland and what theater audiences had also seen however fleetingly onscreen once you got the attention in those two films all about even ask jungle they started putting her in small roles just to see but it was always her those small roles that the audiences were relating to so even though she was maybe the fifth or sixth lead the poster for the movie would have her on it prominently featured so they realized you know now it was time they had to really start giving her substantial roles that when people went to the theaters they wanted to see her after that she never turned back every role after that was a major role for her in film and one of the unique things things about maryland and image is the fact that she was not only attractive to men would euchre movies and found her sexually appealing but also to women as well because in maryland spillman although she was kind of the ditsy blonde as a character she she would always end up winning. She would always end up winning. The man's heart winning the prize winning whatever it was. She always came across successfully. She was yeah so sparkling onscreen. She was not only beautiful. She was just a fascinating character. She seemed to have this vulnerability. Marilyn marilyn monroe may have left norma jean behind changing her hair her image even her name in her pursuit of dream of making it in hollywood but the effect her lonely upbringing as an abused an unwanted foster child had on her was harder to shake off it gave her an irresistible emotional vulnerability on screen but it also also left her mentally fragile and unprepared to cope with the unprecedented level of fame. She was about to experience in the next episode of the killing of marilyn monroe worldwide fame.

"No found me there what is up is envy eight free agency time there's been three billion dollars committed not a free agency a lot of money out there floating around the lakers i've spent one point two million one no i think it's one point is at one point two two point one way one of the many dyslexic for a minute there were just waiting two point one million dollars on eight shooter from phoenix by the name of troy daniels that's right troy daniels who shot thirty eight percent from three this year richards who are dying with the ball in the floor fill it up a little bit a little probably in a perfect world come off the bench i whole lakers he comes right now he's a starter yeah at the male as far as a starter he's in are back court right we do know that much his entire backward actually believe that card that's right eventually he's the kind of guy you bring it is a bench score a very reasonable signing at that level and you need guys at this level you need these guys a because even if and by the way we're waiting we're on co why watch because at any moment that could happen when i when it's if it were officially in apple time and i want you to know that no matter when it happens we will have it for you instantaneously first guest that goes those two things go together instantaneous so obviously it will be first a in a what we know is that there was a meeting a with a married there is at least they're confrontation with magic johnson between in a uncle dennis an collide leonard at some point yesterday brad turner is gonna join us at twelve thirty is that right i he actually knows some of the contents of that conversation there is going to be a meeting at some point in the next day or to collect apparently it's not taking any meetings today had a day off i'm off today i'm off to they act like every one of those restaurants it's open over the weekend so they closed on mondays although frankly who knows at this point really who knows when these meetings are going on i don't believe any reports about quiet leonard 'cause i think quiet leonard is just a weird cat he's gonna do whatever he wants to do a on his own time apple time as you'd like to call it just at this point also doesn't matter because you know indeed troy daniels has really go take a look at the free agent list one were down there actually pretty much everyone's going there is an excellent combo plate though they excellent fallback combo plate is danny green plus marcus morris both still ended okay but that's that's fine too nice candlelight yeah they other dealer move that that i was looking at today he let if collider's miami miami is trying to trade goran dragic edge that also an option now that is they very fine on trade him into the cap space you have remaining if collide doesn't go his memory of quiet goes back toronto and he's i think at this point it's toronto it's the lakers the clippers thing because there's no second star from the go with the clippers could come up with a deal for like bradley beal or something like that there's no other star star friend a play with a in elway with the clippers so it's it goes back in toronto in which case danny green probably goes back toronto or becomes the lakers in which case the dana green me ask you a question what do we know about somebody named adam silverstein steam sounds jewish he's eight blue he is a blue checkmark guy a but i'm not sure that means anything he's listed as a at allen silverstein tv a and then it has is instagram and snapchat before about this before i will answer this question by with with a question okay is he delivering good news for the lakers yet it is good and then i think he's credible sources collide leonard and they lakers are inching closer to an agreement on a max contract will bring the so cal native back home to team up with lebron james and anthony davis contingent on a few training staff additions from his camp now that's not common a lebron i think at least one training camp addition 'em in a whoever you want no good cry fine bring all your friends uncle dennis assistant coach to any of the members of the training staff wanna play yeah because we have room that jalen a so for what it's worth and i don't know be the level of credibility adam so i don't wanna lose a sale adams silverstein maybe knows exactly what he's talking about but that's at least out there in floating around right now i did it looks like the lakers the momentum behind the lakers and it is a stunning change in a sort of direction where things were versus you know three months ago six months ago it really does look like the momentum behind him becoming laker but make no mistake the lakers are absolutely pot committed oh god yeah this is all all all all co why is it yeah here's a look the ever say this is for everything because they knew if they sign collide leonard it's gonna be the room exception which is a little under five million dollars and minimum guys yup as it turns out if they don't sign why it could very well be the room exception an animated guys right yeah remember to the lakers get absorbed players into their cap space but depending on who you're trading where they might still wants something back and the lakers don't have much to give at this point you know maybe you could find a second rounder somewhere the they could make it work if if they're trading partners desperate enough to to make it work but you you know sometimes type something again and the lakers don't have that after the david deal yeah not necessarily somebody the lakers were hot on but ns kanter is now starting a two year ten million dollar deal with boston second year as a player option simmons had a list of the best remaining free agents eight hours in free agency yes and like seven or eight of those guys are already gone yeah no no they're already on now i payton is gone now yep i find less interesting since he cut his hair yeah yeah i liked him much better michael thompson had the best description of it all you remember michael thompson who used to work here he used to work but michael thompson the best it looked like i said he's not commented on any any must not have anything interesting so not at all a baton signed a gigantic deal but i know comma who's just rolling around like scrooge doc includes money they actually delivered cash delivered his entire spits the gold coins out of his mouth found found a but you know you you have this thing like he would say that alfred peyton looked like he had his hair on backwards yes i was the best description of also have ever early through absolutely true 'em yeah it's it's really gonna come down to exact it will go through the rest of it there's a lot of interesting stuff out there they're definitely winters there's at least one one major big time big time loser named the knicks ben lyon yeah ben lyons for ban that is sad for him although julius randle got a handle on the one hand sixty three million dollars for julius randle yes good job julius and then it's like the knicks it's a cynic yeah a the knicks wind up signing julius randle three years sixty three and he gets paid we'd better himself one in one a outside of the second year and gets paid they signed todd's taj gibson bobby portis in wayne ellington and they'll prepare an offer paid knicks fans stumped yeah meanwhile a be big when reggie bullock you're right they ran reggie bullock yeah the big winner of the day a was obviously brooklyn yeah brooklyn comes away where if kyrie irving d andre jordan aunt katie will miss this coming year but man they will be unbelievable all halonen cars that her harris carousel avert spencer dinwiddie oh he's a lot of the island they still have to arouse jared allen the guy's making news if they need to fill in other places they or they developed just really appealing young talent there like i think terrorists liberte has got star potential it's great yeah he's a great player on the team must just worry about hated his foot at some point last year and then they located again yeah and then i vacuums pretty good reassembled it anyways running behind yeah he had a really good run as you know he's a great wing player that's that's one of my least most scary injury things i heard last year to dislocate kate you're entire floyd is gary mailing dislocate that that's like i want to say located i i need that thing that the other team did really well in the western conference with utah utah looks fantastic great team they get by a boy i'm boy boy on bogdonovich after already trading firm on which still am starting five of conley donovan mitchell joe ingles boy on bogdonovich and rudy go bear right now the lakers get why they're obviously be prohibitive favorite in the west end in the entire league but second i would say now the second best team in the west is probably utah i think it probably is the lakers don't get why i realize lebron an anthony davis is better than any to player combo you could come up with utah but the gaps with the jazz it's gonna you know that makes demi formidable opponent for the lakers the west becomes wide open all right coming up next more of are free agent frenzy we're gonna call this the free agent frenzy frenzy show the why watch show a we will have more next mason in ireland brank emanates season for johnny sp intellect already spf mason ireland brank chairman estes infra john a d a tj mcconnell give me what you got there bryan a just been used on the radar he's he's available and still on the right that was it is as a whole but there are a lot of guys like i got a reporter which did you notice eating on the list not breathing off a ladder that's what people making their lists of oh yeah i'm still out there which is action what i was about to look up it's not a lot of dudes no it's not i mean there are people though there are guys are 'em titus jones restricted emmanuel moody ea ties but those are those players i mean there are literally people those players are ralway bobby marks at its highest jones in eight it's a ten million dollar range still a very good emmanuel moody eight eight to ten million dollar rancher a quinn cook is i mean there could be good but he's restricted a he is restricted he's a minimum guy according to bobby marks i i can't imagine that golden state assuming they have a mechanism to keep ended the debate is just crazy they'll hold on how about the return of jeremy lin i wouldn't sweat that know how about j j i think he's staying in dallas okay this is bobby's new list i don't know but that's the point is like this this villis shrinks by the minute this morning south korea was on the list he was he's not anymore a danny green is still in the list that's a big one right but danny green comes here maybe if quite goes to the clippers a backup plan but if collide goes back toronto damian ringo's such around that's what it's exactly what i said greg you disagreed with me i think if if collide goes back to the toronto danny green follows i think that danny green will then take the money that was meant for quietly i know yeah if if they offering sort of value in illinois thirty but you know if they if he'll get more money year most i wouldn't whatever the lakers offer him danny green will get in toronto and he'll stay there yeah because they've got they've got burger he's just waiting he's waiting on why there's a guy his name is harrison sanford he is the host of with danny green on the it's called inside the green room podcast it's with danny green in this guy hairs in sanford hairs in sanford today was on cbc show which is a show up in a canadian harris harris this is where we are harrison sanford who's on the danny green podcast the co host what's on the cbc and he said go ahead and he said that he that danny green is waiting on what collide leonard does if collide leonard stays in toronto then he's gonna have more money in las angeles to take on auto by the yeah i'm just did i gotta be actual words they came out of danny grange mouth last week will things had happened last week a totally different what they happen there's no like last week is different from this week it is yeah so what they said last week doesn't really mean much what you're what you're schooling some now here's the way i only i wrote my point is i think toronto comes up at basically the same amount of money that the lakers would and all things being equal light these other guys wanna run a battle in toronto do we know what their cap situation is in toronto is they they all they have is david words right now but if they paying more than you do have to pay the luxury tax over every over when they go over so are they willing it's about charlie man they're owned by far as i know yes yeah look these are just different ways to look at it i don't think that we don't know how toronto is thinking what their money first of all they're thinking of an entirely different country exact right now you don't kadian it's totally different metric system now right there thinking centimeters how many how many kilometers motors is danny green away from us right now thinking parade in in provinces right they don't think it's they they think provinces that's right a you know take ontario right that would be ontario provinces way way more politely lee it they they very well do you all right so you guys believe that danny green will stay there if kwai signs and in toronto i believe the danny green will sign in la yes okay by the way i assume everything's on the table now it is market people about danny that's remember what happened when you blast tiny played that mystical that's true every time you play that letter disclosure exactly so maybe that's the thing like flaws in in i sometimes at symbol 'cause everything i say it's silly yeah which is this is like we're just waiting on living this guy who doesn't talk who doesn't doesn't speak here there's gonna be no bread crumbs no nothing nothing run the honolulu to decipher this'll be this'll be awful day of of our law and it kind of threat i look in an everyday he may not even be taken any meetings today he may be saying nap this this free agency thing i need a break i need a break i can't handle aria of this i they tickets the toy store in her something like a doctor's appointment loyal jimmy has thing is centrist it is describe what that it i'd say the fear is this ramona put it out there that like they have an idea of what they might wanna do 'em and you tell your team an you wait to see what gets out and so you you raise a piece of information there might be true might be false it might be really important it might not be but the idea is you put it out there you tell the people close to you and then you wait to see if that piece of information gets it's out and if so then you know people in your team are leaking stuff so he's checking the people on is not the teams that he's starting to both i think you know you're checking missy of new information could stay within the whatever circle it is so you find in portland crews talking with the lakers exactly nobody well yeah but you know collide doesn't like noise right it's it's it's he wants about basketball he doesn't want it to be about noise he doesn't like the drama he doesn't make lakers 'perfect justin as far as i can tell people totally don't pay attention that ryan healy inner soft now so if you wanna know is on the organization go week easily remember three months ago there were stuff flying all over the place about what's going on inside that building this that i can't blame anybody for being a least a little bit concerned in suspicious about how well they take care of information right and so maybe you put something there maybe you know little piece of of something that if it gets out you only told that one person her those two people over there whatever might be an that was basically the through the promoter put out some of this delay might be that type of tests to see okay convince people be trusted do you believe leave the guy on reddit who claims to be an h e g guy oh the rather dude yeah i think he's a real person i do too from my understanding from what i've been told i think the lakers saying there's a real person that is also my understanding 'cause he's got interesting stuff yeah i mean it's one of the here's the deal and i i if you read his stuff is this guy on reddit who is essentially an employee of aj agee owns forty percent of the lakers they're involved and all this stuff they're involved in a lot of the marketing i'm sure they've met extensively with the new balance people if collide all that tried to formulate what the marketing plan what things would look like if collide was in la and so you know if you work raging you around this stuff you're previous some pretty important information and so he's kind of doing is reporting back and say here's what i've heard here's what i know here's what i saw you always with the copy out of other things maybe going on he's not you know mr agee no but the thing she said was that 'em kobe has somehow vouched for judy seto right because how they managed wise health is of incredible importance in toronto has alex mckechnie and his group who did a fantastic job of why he's comfortable with those guys and he was always gonna be treated as well here as he was there and that load management thing is gigantic virk why it worked out so perfectly last year that's why he makes it makes so much sense for the lakers an offer him a because they're always gonna be two stars on the planet not just judy seto who's gonna be responsible for collide load management it's those guys it's any given night you just wanna take the night off because they're still heavy other two and you're still very good chance of winning games i i wouldn't expect any of the three to play more than sixty five seventy game no wouldn't make sally only played thirty five or forty as a as a group load management works we thought we thought this year in the finals i a coming up next for you brad turner from time she knows some of what magic johnson communicated to co why can't you could tell us if rob pelinka is gonna come to the meter that's right i dsp on away mason ireland ireland out today is on vacation the long vacation in a very long time what they'll be back i dunno but he will be a scratch golfer at least i can report at one week from today john will be back from his vacation so the show will return to normal and brian cabinet ski will return to whatever it is you do the rest of the time that's that's it a joining us right now fellow well well joining us right now is brad turner from the l a times they run already man vegas and brian hold on one second on its own vacation in again can you believe david he's so lazy yes yes i agree with that so a us so brad you are a you become aware of some other conversation between magic johnson ankle wise camp a tell us a little bit of what has been said between those two parties well it's been a lot been sad but we'll start with number one co why ask you magic if in fact they tried to create the him when played in san antonio an answer was yes they did but because of these deep seated let's just say between the two organization especially san antonio was the lakers here's in the lakers eyes at least that they were asking for so much the lakers just couldn't do that deal and so once he explained that to collide and explain to him that these two franchises had been going at it for you long long time i even do the magic days into the kobe bryant shack days kobe bryant polish all days they just couldn't do a deal where they would give it up you know up to maybe even more than four first from picks so he understood that the next question from wise uncle was is it true that they were so much this function going on any organization between bajic in jeanie and blink motion rob pelinka and magic was honest said yet they listen issues there were some problems but i had yes i did say that by politico is back saturday but we're past that now no this is my word you guys were all past that assignment that the main goal now is is i wanna see the lakers at indy eight championships and i think you could help with that if you have any problems with anyone what you should do you should go to the order jeanie buss she could solve any problem which we had any issues because she is the owner she is the ultimate problem solver you could always take anything you have to heart china brad turner the l a times just try you're sure what's going to do is it effective and then it just you know fans looking better people you know us by look at angle really like it's just that easy to move along with that effective enough for clive brooklyn's only collide those avatar avatar decal by up to the owner they know it's not i would say if the uncle is calling back after that compensation several times that it it must have been effective eaten up because then accomplish conversation turned to other things just on him having grown up being embedded johnson fan so if you continue to so after that that it must have resonated in doubt that this is what i took from you're original statement there jeanie buss is the ultimate problem solver you can only go to her is that magic way of saying saying bypass rob altogether no not only go to if you decide that you need to go you can go to if you wanna you don't wanna go to rob i mean that's the first race of people start where what's blocked because he is there every single day but if you decide you want to go past that jumped passed the gm then go to the unit being what lebron james do he goes to the younger they wanna make sure why can't that they could have some of the same power than the brian james had by bringing some people to work with him medical people some a coach or two they wanna make sure that would be okay that genie is okay with the in that if they have a question about something can we go to the owner with this nothing against survive they respect why they think i just doing his job that course they wanna know what those issues or robert lead in genie all the same page just magically that then all that's fine but bottom line is he wants to win at nbc championship me either choir choir personal quite individual she wants they know who kenny play where that could help him win another title at least another three to the i think the the the fascinating thing about this like who's of all the voices at least in my mind the one that matters the most is lebron and him explaining to a co why like how this is gonna work from a basketball standpoint when you put the three of those guys together with lebron and eighty in why what is your understanding of how the two of them have communicated in the message that lebron communicated to collide what we can go back to the game they played against each other toronto the lakers when we saw by telling him that we would talk no mind center there that they have had conversations i think or i don't know i don't think anyone knows except for the two of them end their camps but i could imagine the brian james saying some sort of what happened to him in miami brian d wade and chris bosh at some point during that season dwayne wade said to the brian james this is your team you take it over annoying the brian james being the player that he is being a spark for guy that he is in one that this is just seventeen coming up that he could easily turn to anthony davis anti acquired the say all the one the take step back i'll be the one to facilitate tate more because i like doing it anyway i'll be the guy that would deal with the bt every single day but i'll be the guy to make sure they do guys shine i want to win at mb eight championship here with the lakers would you say that that that is true co why an obviously it's gotten to the anthony davis than it could work together once they will say for the bron he does share the basketball he's not a ball does he have a lot of stuff going on around him yes he does but co why has basically nothing going on around him except playing basketball you only pay sixty games obviously eighty has his injury if the deal with it but they don't have that not all that circles so if it just one guy with the surgery is if you guys can play do that thing then i'm sure both guys all three guy would be fine brad turner ellie times is what this do you have any sense of timing when a meeting might be in one co wise decision might come absolutely love them any at all we we'd prefer it'd be some time before three o'clock today yeah no it'd be good starting the show today that would be good but that's not the get now why is also is scheduled to meet with another team in in l a's called the elliott clippers i am unfamiliar with the bat yes i am a little bit as well after a lot it is also going to meet with the toronto raptors the team he won the title where it's so there's nothing concrete and then stone with the lakers win they're gonna have this meeting as far as i know maybe it's been set but i haven't been able to one of that information is done soon that'd be the break man i wish i would have long vacation 'em bc light the clippers saying there's most of the reports seemed to indicate that 'em that he wants to have at least one more star with him on whatever team he goes to i guess they exception maybe being toronto because he knows that situation and kyle lowry is there to the clippers seem like they've been shut out on all those players does that take them out of the runway i guess they're still gonna meet but how how far down is that seemed knock them in the race together ooh man that's hard the answer is for me the way shut out of these players and i wouldn't do that were only because all of these guys decide what they wanna do and you're at the mercy the only way i mean i guess unless you the next now they've been shut out at shutdown is unfortunately them know how how it would work with the clippers was interesting because one one thing we do know is that it is tough hard nosed playing team they have a great coach in that they have a great owner steve bombo they have this really side is smarts fun officers have all that going for them but is that enough to sway why to go there only he knows only he could decide that it can't be an easy decision me again she won eight championship not just for one city but for the entire country that has to wait when he has to mean something to you know but in the end where does he wanna beat does he wanna bring a toronto but he would have been outlay well they wanna play for the lakers clippers only he could answer that question brad last thing for you you said yesterday wrote yesterday along with tony again guli a that the meeting was scheduled you'll be a heads up with a jeanie buss in that they were considering expanding the meeting to include rob pelinka you have a better sense of who's actually going to be in the meeting for the lakers not oh so for hoping to find bation but as a day at twelve forty three p m one that is not a guarantee the general manager rob pelinka will be invited to the meeting to try to recruit why leonard it does not equate guarantee that is crazy that is crazy 'em all right hey brad great stuff thank you very much for coming on we appreciate it and will send her regards to john ireland vacation a destination right now oh man that guy that what a life life to be john ireland all right hey thanks brad thank you all right there you have it so i think he's a he's brought some clarity end a kind of the clarity is that there was there is a conversation that he doesn't seem to have been disqualifying the answers that a that they got an that you know the other it's like this is the most cou why process yeah ever because we don't know anything okay let's react to it next mason in ireland brian cabinet ski in for the vacationing john ireland e s p n a lay a couple of nuggets to pass along on free agent center forward rashawn homes signed to a two year ten million dollar deal with the sacramento kings and jj berea who had mentioned a couple of minutes ago is considered to be a lock to return to dallas so just a couple of names to a to throw in there a we will keep you up to date on every single name that comes across a here and then be free agency so a brown what what's it take away from brad turner's conversation are conversation with brad turner it seems like conversations between magic johnson and camp why went well enough that they're they're stay on the process magic's explanations about how the front office in a way that is that is a weird question to did you guys tried a trade for me is interesting i think he wants to know like red line said all along yes there's just something you know paul george one in the same thing right you know in part of the reason he said he stayed in oklahoma city was you guys had a chance to come get me and you didn't i wasn't a priority for you that so i mean why i guess they want the reassurance who's a priority now i don't see how he could possibly not know that right but you know guys a weird yeah no and particularly a car on the questions about what's going on in the front office you do need to talk about the magic into jeanie buss andrew rob pelinka liking get everybody side here because if you're really doing your due diligence you can't just talk new organization 'cause you're gonna get their interpretation of course things were fine you have to find out like really what is going on in uncle dennis an end magic have any previous relationship and so he no dennis knows magic magic and so he's gonna trust magic to be honest with what it sounds like magic was the crazy thing is magic just quit on april eighth then went on first taken torched organization and now he's vouching for the organization that he torched it's at least he said yeah this is a real thing right at least they did try to say oh no is overblown and whatever i don't that would have been a terrible answer the question obviously wasn't overly you quit over it friday went on tv and you're just being like you say torch them so he gave me honest answer of yeah it was a bad it was a problem there's some stuff that need to be fixed we've all moved on beyond it any way it almost sounds like he's saying my being out of office by being outside of this situation improves it it makes easier for everybody else to do their job i could still be an advocate for the lakers and fill all these cracks almost isn't ambassador and a consulting which are really what he should have been given yeah andy rob linka can get in there and do the heavy lifting the dirty work in the salary cap and all this other stuff and so this works better now there were divorced because ultimately co why hasta have some faith in rob pelinka is general manager 'cause he's gonna make every little decision along the way who were the veteran's minimum minimum guys i mean that's not magic johnson isn't gonna do the asking me the guy who runs the the hiring and firing make sure you have the right people in the training staff all this stuff that's important to him like you know lebron convene on rich paul hit a lot of stuff done answer hey what's going on rich paul why isn't that's not his guy right and so he's gotta make sure there's trust with any organization that they'll bring in the people that he wants they don't get the same kind of respect in treatment that lebron gets me answer is yes he will lebron could bringing five guys were trained staff and he wants a different nutritionist that's fine is why wants his own nutritionist nine nutritionist on staff yeah if that's whenever headaches so but you just you're uncapped on nutrition and he's yes you could have as many nutritionists as you want you can go way over the nutritionist cap is now but this is the kind of management that lincoln needs to be good at because we want our own nutritionist we want an extra guy on the coaching staff those were easy easy eventually though the questions get harder the requests get a little bit pushy right starts to really in encroach on me autonomy organization you have to draw a line somewhere we want our guy we want you sign are guy to a four year deal at thirty five million like that's what we want right well no we can't do that or whatever it might be you absolutely it's not luring lebron james they're executing the anthony davis trade that makes being the gm of the lakers complicated that stuff is mega mega good at socal mega taint they got steve is it happening magazine you think it's happened i do i think that's that's my favorite yes vegas has the favorite oh yeah considerably why infer the turk hawaiian for them be a championship super i think people are angry 'cause quiet and you sound like all these guys are coming off the board oh wait a minute he's being being selfish we we got a call yesterday at like an and i i love her cheryl whose name just sticks in my head because it was the one woman show yesterday she was really really nice but she said why is being really selfish and i said it's been exactly ninety one minutes in free agency ninety one minutes but people are like does anyone have a good team around him and this and that like all these guys are often but why understands if he signs with the lakers none of these free agents that are off oh yeah can come here unless he's gonna take fifteen million dollars a year and play which i gotta do if he comes here

A lot of great things coming up. My man, Ben Lyons is going to be in the building, which is great from Yahoo sports. Right. Does some work with the players Tribune, host of the podcast, the lions, Dan, we're going to catch up on some New York hoops, figure out? Maybe we're Kevin Durant is going may Brock, hey, I was just thinking about, man, we need to check on that poll. What kind of action we got on that? Yeah. Let's check on the Paul our three PO brought to you by Capital, One cabinet ornans, reimagined banking by offering savings and checking accounts with no fees, or minimums, and one of the nation's best savings rates. It's Capital One. What's in your wallet approval required Capital One and a member FDIC? All right. So we're talking about Cam Newton earlier guys, the video that went viral over the weekend of Cam China offer this guy fifteen hundred cash for some extra legroom on a ten hour, I still can't believe this story and the guy said, no. Exact. He must have been comfy. He must have been rich or just didn't care about having Kim's. Got nice watch on should went for the watch asking you guys. What's the best coach seat on the airplane? What's the best coach seat? Bulkhead window bulkhead, I'll exit row, I or exit row window forty seven percent exit row. I'll twenty two percent bulkhead window exit. I'll exit I'll forty-seven percent. Agree disagree. I if I had the choice on the window guy liked to be secure, kind of, like, Nestle up on the window kind of saying, I sleep. You know what I mean? Can you sleep on airplanes, not as well as I would like to right? I mean, I feel like I see people like curled up out my kids, we little, girls, get on a plane, bro. No problem out of just how do you even do that? Teach me. This is a little late for that teach me teach me pretty good about sleeping on planes. When you're a jet center like yourself, just just throw some headphones on. And you're out put you. Are you there pods? No, no. Eats like boys clothes. Yeah. Like I do the pods for working out. I'm on a plane. I go big go big boys sake. Bose noise cancelling bluetooth SIA. Yeah. I'd say it's funny man because I think traveling with kids, you know, that's the worst thing, you want us for your kids like yell or scream on the plane, right? But now with all these noise cancelling headphones, I don't feel bad for you. If you don't have those. What is your what is your philosophy? How do you get them to stay calm, stay focused like that through the ipad movies? What's your go-to? I mean we talked to an hour one about being the Commissioner for the day. And I was talking about writing unwritten rules. I think there's a lot of unwritten, airplane, etiquette rules that people need to understand. I tell you about that all the time. Biggest fear is when I'm traveling with my wife. My two daughters. We have a we have our dog Cooper that we travel with as well. I mean, that's we're like the clamp. It's brought a lot of stuff going on. I haven't so I think, you know, the worst thing that I like to do is. Sometimes when we booked flights, it's hard to get four seats that are together or two seats and two seats. So I've had a little problems every now and then asking somebody to switch with me so I can sit next to my three year old daughter. They're like, oh, no. You know, and I'm like great. You're gonna take care of my kids for five hours. If they had daycare on the airplanes grill, your jam half of the plane is that's. Not happened yet. Got now delta somebody get dealt on the phone. Let's soundproof them. No. Right, pay for it right now hundred you're trying to tell me, you put up like a partition, if you let the kids, just go back. That's like fruit juice. All plays. The hunger games on the back of the plane survival of the fittest. Right. But I think that would definitely help think it's possible I've ever gone full Cam Newton on a plane and offer up so he'll give you a hundred bucks if you move seats. No, you know what? I don't know if I if I've got cams cheese. So I don't know if I've ever offered any money for the seat. We're not carrying around McKay. Now, the fact you've got fifteen hundred his pocket. Also for looking one thing, this guy could have been like a falcons fan or a saints fan. How about that video that I don't like is. I can't see the guy or the woman was at a guy think it was a guy got woman that he was speaking to, I got give camp credit that we kept it together. He went over. He was he outed, a little bit when he got to see. He didn't have that. But I look at him and he kept it together. You don't see any hands flying all over the place. Like, man, I can't believe that. But I would have on everybody in that, that whole Mike, you're different breed, gone across that whole thing like this fifteen hundred yelled at realize what I'm saying fifteen hundred gross out, teen to get the I watch, too. You can give hoop. You get here. Got you. So defeated when he walks back to seat. Yeah. By the way, he's squished himself in that seat shit. He's hanging over your now. They only the only humidity great gets off the plane has to do a press conference. I'm losing that seat. There you go. You'd be like talking about losing seat. That's phenomenal comes new elfin new outfit brought him. Some of that news, let's hit the news. Let's do it. Brock met with federal live report drunk men, with the news news is brought to you by the Honda fourth of July event going on right now. You can join monumental offers on the accord pilot and civic sedan. Hurry in and cast your vote for great deals today. This Honda fourth of July sales event. A little NFL guys. Of course, can't talk about the NFL talking about the Cowboys Dak Prescott talk at his annual youth football camp talking about expectations for twenty nine thousand nine hundred quote my expectations are high not necessarily any ceiling on what I can do or what this team can do. It's just about the work. Putting in the work get better every aspect of the game. Making sure my teammates are doing the same. We are excited for the position we're in so Dak Prescott high expectations what expectations do you have for the Cowboys this year, Nick. Well, I'll tell you what I loved AC, I love the way he goes about his business. I love the fact that he. Wants to be the leader on that squad obviously with Zeke in the backfield huge o h I o guy. I don't know. I think every year, I think the Dallas Cowboys are kind of like the New York Yankees right? I feel like you're kind of expected to win the Super Bowl or the World Series every year. And if you don't it's a lost year, I think Jerry Jones has been very open about having Dak Prescott as his quarterback and his leader, moving into the future. Could not be more happy with that. When your owner gives you as a player when your owner or your general manager or anyone in the brass gives you that confidence, right? To say, hey, you're our guy. I get goosebumps thinking about it because an athletes, something happens to you, and you get kind of set yourself up in that net comfortable phase where you're kind of, like, that's it, man. I've got so many people that are counting on me. There's something good for that. So I think the Cowboys man moving forward. I mean obviously I think they put a great product on the field each and every year best stadium in the game right now. Yeah. So, you know, we'll see. Do you have a favorite football team growing up in West Virginia? That's usually Mueller's Brown's countries Steelers Browns, my brother's a huge steel curtain fan for myself. I kinda grew up kind of like in the Chicago Bears. I thought the Super Bowl shuffle had a nice swag, too. It back when I was a little kid. So I think for them, I've always been that Chicago got my dad played for the cubs. But now I'm like del tufo Rams guy out here. Now you know what I'm saying? Well, you got the tickets at the new stadium already got them. I'm in. I heard they spray painted your face on your seats, actually, we'll have my name on my seat. Really? Yeah. I'm joe. Take your own showed sharpie, and sign. Michael, d we think about Jerry Jones is one of the conic owners and all sports, you played for George Steinbrenner or one of the most iconic owners and sports. What was that? Like do you have any stories you can share about your interactions? With him were you gotta remember? I came over to the day, a little late in Mr. Steinbrenner's life. So I kind of caught the tail end but I can't tell you a great story the first time I ever had an interaction with George Steinbrenner. He will remember, but I'll remember I was at Ohio State nothing. You might have been my sophomore my junior year, and we used to have our pre game meal, this place called Damon's, which is a ribbon steak joint, which was right there on Owen tangent. River road right there on the house state campus. And George Steinbrenner did so many things for how state city of Columbus and all that. And I had just gone just gone to the bathroom, and I was walking back to the sink, and all the sudden I'm walking kind of got my head down and get shoulder checked. Kind of like knocks me off, and I turn and look, and it's this old dude, white hair, and I'm like, what of what who was that, right? And I'm like, man, this guy's having a bad day or something I walk over like wash my hands and I turn to stare at him again because I wanted him to see me, and I turned to look, and it was George Steinbrenner. Not like, oh my gosh. Right. So I went washed my head through quick, and it just got myself right out. I don't know if he'll remember that, but I do whatever I do remember getting shoulder checked in the bathroom by George Steinbrenner just to start off my, my college career appreciate. Well, that's great. And then he didn't have any interactions with him with the Yankees or anything else. I did. But, you know later in life when, when things started to kind of go down a little bit. But I'm telling you what, man, the fact that, that man is not in the hall of fame is shame, because you cannot write the history of baseball without George Steinbrenner. And that's kind of how I look at hall of fame stuff. So I think it should be in there, obviously he's not. But an iconic owner, just like Jerry Jones is very, very hands on, you mentioned hall of fame real quick. I want to bring this up just personally curious, your take on it. We talk about every year with the baseball hall of fame, whether or not the guys who have the steroid clouds surrounding them. Do you think they should be in out, what should they do if they do them in, do you think you ever see a day where these guys like Roger Clemens? Barry Bonds mar McGuire. Manny Ramirez etcetera may. Make it to CU percents. I'm not quite sure I don't have any votes, but I think intil the voters of the hall of fame start to become younger that those guys aren't gonna stand the chance. I think those guys that have the votes in the hall of fame are very stuck in their ways. They think a game should be played a certain way. And for a young guy like myself, obviously, I love the old school style of baseball, but also like the new school style a baseball. So I think for myself, I'm kind of a little more openness stuff like that. But I also think you have to look at how the situation was handled with those players. Right. You look at somebody like Jason Giambi who got popped for steroids, and literally just took it right on the chin. He was like, hey, man. I'm sorry. Yeah. You know, I I was trying to help myself he was very honest. Very transparent right away. Yeah. Roger Clemens Barry Bonds, many. Those guys weren't like that. So I think that there has something to be said for how the situation was handled, but I think major league baseball has well as a lot of professional sports are doing such a tremendous job trying to. Down on steroids. You're never gonna take him completely out of the game. I mean we just saw player from the Oakland A's just got popped for steroids gonna miss eighty game. So I think they're doing their best job and they're putting their best foot forward because the testing has gone way up through the roofs, but I think until viewer until the voters get a little younger. I don't think a whole lot is going to change and the punishment I think is good. Beijing baseball is kind of done a write in that respect where pop bloom, half the season gone, second time, don't pay. Yes. Second time gone for a whole year. We saw obviously rod got hit with the whole year. I mean I think if you really want to get rid of steroids in the game make it a lifetime ban. I defense lifetime ban. That'll be scary for guys to think about that. But I mean obviously that's hard because there's been a lot of false positives on some certain ratings. So he's be collectively bargain to there's still a lot of gray area but I think they're doing a pretty good job of shutting down, though. Steroidal seem to hear as much about it as much as you used to back in the day World Cup update. Eight okay, the US women are through to one river Spain. Megan routine scored on a PK there late in the match two one win next and action Friday in the quarter-finals three PM eastern against France. Wow, you go the whole country host country. Wow. Huge match huge at France. One yesterday's game. Brazil Friday, three PM eastern. That's going to be amazing who you got. I mean, I don't know how I go against USA. Hopefully, hopefully extra time when mind seeing it go down to penalty kicks. That'd be exciting. How amazing are penalty. Kick in the World Cup best. They're amazing amazing. I tell you what they're doing. They're shutting down the movement of the goalie. Right. You know, like they're seeing a lot of PK's that are telling you off the line even an inch back. That doesn't count. I don't know. I kind of liked them coming out kind of like shut down that shut it down that nearside. But do you like PK to end something like this? It's like the shootout. It's like a World Series being decided on a homerun derby. Great. I love that for the Yankees. I'm in, I'm in. Let me. I don't think there's anything more exciting than either shootout in hockey or or shootout in World Cup soccer. Come on. We. Stanley cup. And you think that should have been decided by shootout? I mean, if if it happened to be sure I mean I want them to play the game. Right. But if it does, if it ends in a tie, and they need case I'm all for it. Okay. Surpri, bro. Into that. Well, we got we got our point Ben lines coming up here in a little bit man. So excited to have one last thing I wanted to talk about this. We mentioned Leonard, we're talking about him at the top of the show today. Did you see the billboards that have popped up in Los Angeles? No. So clippers obviously rumored at one of the teams in, you know, hope of signing Kawai to digital billboards of went up over interstate five Downey, which is about ten miles southeast of staple center and another one. King of so Cal and another one with the license. Why? Licensed place. Where do you think you can end up going just right now? Just like you know, just pick a spot where you're gonna go. My gut says he comes to the clippers. Yeah. What about you, Mikey? I'm with Brockman. I think show and L A is going to be out of control with with Little Brown and coli. And it's going to be Anthony Davis and doing for outcomes. What sort of max deal? Can he sign with one of those teams because for years just four years, what does it four for what? One fifty something like that. When you get above one hundred -actly gown pocket change, and wherever he goes, I mean, think about this. We can make this like a financial situation. Requi- never has to pay for meal Toronto. Right. Probably three million dollar free free condo for three million dollar condo. And, you know, somebody somebody throw in a car, right? Somebody have a car for sure. Yeah. Car deal. I'm sure right. I mean we gotta call him Nobu. Let's see what else he needs to get. Ball has Reseda. Let's just. Beverly Hills Mercedes family laxed over here. Rotate plates available on the California DMV right now. Mikey all mind. You want one great mix. That's it. That's what I do. Vanity plate.

But now in numbers altogether. It's it push thirty three you could get that. That's seven letters. Right. That's what you get. Seven is their seven? Yes. Five to seven.

Mix Swisher fill in for rich Eisen on the rich Eisen show. Ladies and gentlemen, we are blessed and honored to have my boy, Ben lines. Do you remember his storage remember the first time you met my wife was it at the wedding? Is that the way that Jamie and cutters weather? But I was like, Mariah, you're gonna meet this guy Nick Swisher. He's awesome. Just ribs. He crushes. All right. She's excited excited. We get up there a little late Friday night, so swishes already gone up to the room but he comes back down. He's at the bar, and he's wearing a t shirt that says, don't bro me unless you know. Across the board. He goes you. That's nick. And as advertised. Well, buddy. What an end your wife by far you married up. There's no. What does this coverage that everyone talks about you out kicking? What does that? What does that coverage? Yes. Kicks code. All the good, we all marry up no doubt about that. We try and do that. We'll check out my been on Twitter and Instagram at I am Ben Lyon. Knicks talk these days ought RJ Barry tweets, more assists than Kobe white more revenge de'andre under. What made just for the Nixon general? Right. I mean obviously with the Kevin Durant injury. That changes a lot of things moving forward, seven days before, NBA free agency starts. I mean come on hoops is right up your alley. Give me more. All about how you look at life. It's perspective, the most Knicks thing ever would be to sign Kevin Durant. And then the ruptured achilles. Krog less. This is home. This is only look your heart goes out as as professional athlete. I'm sure is fans. Your heart goes out to Kevin Durant. You want what's best for them. I want him in New York so badly. I'll take the redshirt year. Of course, I want him to come into play for the Knicks. There's talks him going to Brooklyn today. That's the rumor that's out this morning. I hope not I, I would hate rich climbing for the rest of my life. I've known him since we were like in high school feel. So now it's a collegiate, archrivals if rich sins Katie Brooklyn. That's dead. There's a betting favourite. Now. They are the betting favorite minus one twenty-five RJ bell or someone Vegas say that. Yeah. Let's go in there to that's been the long rumor kyri and Durant in Brooklyn with the red shirt year. Yeah, I mean, look, Barclays a nightclub with the lights, turn on and what I don't like about the nets move to Brooklyn. They pretend that all the years in New Jersey, never existed existed. Can we get right? Can we get us to phone more very appreciation night to meet? Keeping. Kerry, Kittles, can we get like so mcq knowledge of the fact that they played basketball before they moved to Brooklyn? Well, some of those old, I mean, Kerry, say, Kerry, Kittles Vince Carter on Jason Williams. I mean, you know that those scenes are awesome. It's the finals shake kid Derrick Coleman man used to love going because you so cheap to go on the, the Knicks were so good in the nineties, every stockbrokerage season. Tickets. Nets play. Chris Morris nice to watch games and stuff back in the day able to get away with that stuff back in the day not anymore anymore. So what else is new man? Everything's good, man. I'm excited. Because in addition, a lot of this hosting stuff, do a lot of producing stuff. You were really supportive of film. We release this year and search greatness. By Gabe Polsky. Let me break it down real fast. If you haven't seen this documentary, you need to right. We've got three main guys in on it. We've got Palay. We've got Jerry Rice. And we've got Wayne Gretzky arguably three of the greatest that they've played, we had thought it in their direct. We made a choice here. Railway down. Go with those three and said, but the idea of unlocking human potential, right? And why did Wayne Gretzky Jerry Rice, and Palay become these icons in their sport, when they're by no means the biggest fastest strongest works? But it's because they just had a love of the game. And they were able to have that love grow when they were children growing up and they weren't over coached in over a you'd and over specialize. They played other sports. They trained other muscle groups. They had other interests besides sports. So that was a film. We put out in the end of two thousand eighteen to Vail now on I tunes and stuff. But the idea of bringing the culture conversation sports together athletes is artists. That's sort of what I'm about and trying to do as a storyteller. So we have a few projects coming up being released. Twenty nine thousand nine through the rest of the year. And I just love where you can bring sports and culture together. I did it with Mara rock the vote campaign back in the day. That's right. I mean getting the Golden State Warriors and the WNBA behind voting and getting their voice out there, so any time you can, you know, yes, Xs and os of the game we can yell at, you know, players and the other team. And heck oh and you know I like to sit in the bleachers. And when you were in Yankee Stadium, you're my friend, but I'm throwing quarter throw batteries batteries. Boundaries too. Part of the but there's a larger game of life, and whether it's through film or some of these other projects that we're working on, I like to try to play in that sandbox once again, boy, Nick Swisher sitting in here for rich Eisen on the rich Eisen show talking to my main man, the one and only Ben Lyons talking a little bit about the dock that they just released a little bit ago in search of greatness. And one of the things I took from that doc. The thing I really, really appreciated, the most was from Jerry Rice, and maybe like the most simple sane. But you don't have to be the best athletes on the field to be the best athletes on the field. Right. I think you took passion, right pay late talking about not boxing, kids in and I think for myself being coach moving forward. Right. I think that's what we do a lot. We like physically show people how to do things and I don't think that's how it should be done nowadays. What do you say to a young baseball player out there says coach swish show me a batting stance show me, some of the all time, great hitters and your show him call you strips? He's going to bring it. Hi Julio Franco, but. Oh boy one foot open. It's all about feeling so about that kind of game. Like I said, the top people doing exactly what they should be when you see it, and it's natural when you see RJ, Barron. He's wearing the pink suit and he's got the diamonds new money. You look like a winner, dude, you, but the, the idea of kids finding their way as a parent, I can imagine. Especially when it comes to this use sports stuff has got to be -pletely overwhelming, or intimidating even as former athlete yourself, but to give kids the, the freedom to fail the idea that you don't have to be in the backyard doing crossover drills like go play. Go go play. Soccer go work. On other thing goes yoga. Go have fun. You'll be a kid yourself. Yeah. And then you'll find your way as you get older. And if you have that great gift of, of greatness, that exists within those guys, then hopefully that'll be able to come out well obviously it'll shine out through. I think we try and force that issue, very early in line. If you don't make the traveling team at six you're not gonna make it at seven and by eight year old and a hill. Really ridiculous. Troll. Anyways, let's move more NBA, right? The NBA draft just happened. Zion Williamson huge name coming out right now, obviously, you're a big RJ Barrett guy, moving forward with the Knicks. What do you think of this draft class? Man, I'm telling you. We got some high flyers. We got some big names, Jay Mirant, right there, second pick of the draft. It's interesting. We went through a phase where it was a lot of guys named gazillion tight guys. We added her guys from overseas guys from around the world, and yeah, there are a few international players, but there's a lot of big time. College program's Michigan fourth year in a row with a first round draft pick. Didn't see any buckeyes on the board behind the university of Michigan. Traffic's so you know you see guys de'andre one hundred from Virginia. You see Zion from Duke. You sow Cam reddish from Duke might be one and done. But guys from big time college programs are getting picked and it's the accumulation of stuff. Right. Another reason, the Lakers were able to get Anthony Davis. They had a lot of stuff and sometimes teams, they run out of stuff when they start paying guys. You've saw the warriors they ran out of stuff when all their guys got injured. So the hawks the Cavs the teams of the bottom of the barrel, their accumulating dudes. They're accumulating assets. Yeah. It's almost like in football where the formulas you got to win now with a quarterback who's not getting paid you got to win now. You have star players who aren't getting paid down, Mitchell's on a sweet deal. The Utah Jazz, and they can be a playoff team every year. Aaron judge. He's on a cheap deal. Thanks. You. Even even New Orleans. They're gonna have to decide do you pay Brandon Ingram. Do you give him an extension when he comes up for like a Karl Anthony towns or Devon Booker, you know in in those situations? So man, it's nerdy it gets. It's, it's fun. When it's like the court, he's six pick and the Knicks draft that Lithuanian he man. Freshman Iggy looks like he. Flex couple years ago, I think seven out of the fifteen all NBA guys were the fifteenth, pick and hire the year that Isaiah Thomas zone. AG Andre Jordan, John is. So you can get value for guys deepen the draft. So, you know, pay attention late at night, when, you know, you're seeing guys, you might not have heard of now, but a couple of years from now it might be all NBA, I'd like to get your take on this. And we, we were talking about earlier, Brock. We were talking about, I think it was an hour one, how you don't necessarily need have three NBA superstars to win a championship. Now, you have grownups. Right. You'd have mature grownups. I, I remember I was I was homesick the other day I was watching NBA TV, and they're replaying a bunch of finals games. And I'm watching like bison daily verse like Antoine Carr. Right. Seven low post men bashing the final scores in the eighties. He adds like you can have all these cool young players trae Young's. Awesome always guys fantastic. Remember playing in may and June. It was playing Danny green Kyle Lowry Sergio Baca grownups. You know. And so, and that's what you see with these teams. Now, if you go all in on these three four max guys, and then you have a bunch of Schmendrick, your left like cockroaches in the lights, come on. It's all over the place. Got to have a some Debbie game so fast. Now, the shots are, so there's so many more shots, that are getting put up, you got to be eight nine ten deep now. And the warriors just weren't. It was a war of attrition, raptors one out. Yeah. Of course and the way the three pointers changed the game. I mean, ever since you know, Steph showed up, I feel like in high school. You are not allowed to shoot outside the lane. Right. It was like ten foot jumpers were right there. And that's in stay up in here. Let let the sharpshooters go out there. But we didn't have insurance that got Charles Oakley with. Eighteen footer Albro. I was like a Johnny stock. They'd like give me the ball and I'll pass it right back. Your dirty players. Guys. Joy this style the evolution of the NBA now. Yeah, I do. I do love the flow of reminds me when you're playing pick up with your friends and you're out like a full court that's not five on five with small enough for like three on three or four hundred four full court for us civilians, get shots up. I like it and brings a game back to skill and the rest, you swallow the whistle a little bit and May June. It gets physical the games weren't in the finals, one hundred thirty one hundred like the regular season. Course Knicks nineties games. You look at the score Iraq is seventy four sixty eight so hard to compare players from one generation to the other right. Gives a white different game back with Jordan played like literally dudes. We're like clothes lining him. And now got like twos all day. Yeah. But then Jordan was also not playing in the league that had a hundred dudes from around the world. And some of them were seven foot three and can shoot the three see so bonkers league right now. So I it's not full on starship troopers football. It hasn't gotten that neck deep reference, you know, talking about one casper van dean's a quarterback running it up. But it's getting there getting video game like yeah. For sure once again, Nick Swisher, sitting in for rich is on the rich Eisen show. Chattanooga little NBA hoops with my guy been lying doesn't stop dude. It's summer, man. It's summertime and it's LA drew league. He lameta drew. What else is going down? WNBA. A couple of sparks games this year. Cans Parker just came back. They got wax the other night by six thirty but LA's become, you know, I'm from New York, the Knicks are my butt, and Newark will always be the mecca and it's the city's game because we don't have fields and golf sources all over this but here in LA the capital basketball right now. And the guys are working out here in the summertime all the free agent. So you have all these fifteen sixteen year old kids. Cone into sports sports talk radio being, like I saw David phys Dale. In Beverly Hills. He was with co wives Shriners friend's cousin's, moms reader, and Swisher was there. So he's going to the cat free action. Exactly. So let me ask you about him real quick. We've all been seeing the clips online on Instagram or whatever if his name was not lamelo ball. What town of prospect? Do you think he is? I almost feel like he is a child actor gone like off the rails in some way. Right. Right. He's just I mean he's basketball journey has been so all over the place. It's like Lindsay Lohan she's just every everywhere. Right. So I would she the town, the actress, if she weren't Lindsey, I don't know. I mean lamelo ball like a, a real prospect. I haven't felt that from anyone. I haven't heard him commit to a big time program. We feel as currency in the culture because of the last name and because of the awkward shot and the crazy shots and the. Instagram moments. But I I tip my hat to, to go out there to the drew league, this summer and. He's, he's playing great plain gray and getting beat. And he's doing his thing. And he's, you know, from Lithuania from river rate, we went from chino hills to Lithuania to Ohio, and now there's going to Austria now, the one Australia, which is great. I was just in Australia, November, and they are basketball crazy. And he's seventeen eighteen right? So I, I don't think she's a real prospect as Bobo real prospects. I mean he dropped to the forty eight spies like ten games in Oregon. So think some guys can sell you on the hype for a little period. I I'm rooting for the mellow says he wants to be the number one picking the draft. I enjoy watching, I think Lonzo is great. I just think he's got an unlucky with some injuries but I think he's a good player, but he didn't subscribe to that. And search your greatness theory that kid was playing basketball as entire life, why you see the injuries at a young age Lonzo ball should not be brittle. He should not be over a trained and have these recurring ankle with things in need things like he you know, he didn't someone tells me a fourteen years old. He wasn't playing baseball. He wasn't just out there being a kid. He was in the backyard training is in the NBA. So what do I know? But I think I think lamelo has got a real shot if he can figure out that jump shot. Come through the just in general. What do you bet on? Yeah. What do you bet on that movie right there? Okay. So it's the anniversary of space balls. Release in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven one of the great film spoofs of all time, of course Bush short shorts. I was thinking with this early today. What's the best movie spoof, best movie spoof? So, of course, you got baseball's Austin powers kind of does to spy game stuff shots take on, action movies shots, buddy John Buddha. She was a spoof expert. He loves the naked gone as the fun run a bunch of, there's so many scary movies, all those types. What's your favorite? What's the there's a lot of good ones, the Wayne's brothers obviously dominating that, that arena. My dad's quote is on the box. I think of naked gun or naked gun two and a half now thirty three thirty three into thirty two. Now, I'm I was in high school. I was eighteen my high school. Baseball team went to a nice New York City private school. We did spring training in Arizona. Zona. We aren't staying at a motel across the street from the Zona mills mall, and we went to a test screening of scary movie where they're just testing it randomly some shopping mall. So I'm twenty deep when my high school baseball team up to see scary movie, I don't think I've ever laughed so hard that movie blew us away. It was so funny. They made three or four of them that because scream was a spoof movie itself in some ways, not full on spoof. Right. But it was the tirico of the John Rowe and made references to previous kind of scary movie tro. Yeah. So this was like, super matter. Right. And that it's like a spoof of a satirical film. So I'm going scary movie is a spoof might from ice from well before we let you go management up slightly awesome romp. So honored Rick with swish. You're like a matching McConnell. Hey speech come to life on that. Britt, pro I wish I looked like him personally. That's just me. But I got to ask you about the partnership with the PGA you have coming up.

I want to get it off the it's like Mike. Trout. Hosting the man, I love the game of golf in the fact that these charity tournaments exists out there. And we can bring fans who don't get the access to those events and shine a light on all these charities, like Jalen rose running running a school in Detroit for a long time. The leadership academy, I was on his in his family on family feud to raise money for.

The Sedano Show (HR 2): Ben Lyons Top 10 Disney movies

"Zenit by progressive insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. We'll have our senior shout coming up in about twenty minutes or so so stick around for that Ben Lyons for his weekly Movie Review at eleven thirty and Mike Trudell joins us. Now here. A friend of the program. The best sideline reporter in the business of your Los Angeles Lakers spectrum. Sports our buddy my trudell. Hello Michael How are you with a lot man missing you in person? I the last time we were texting was about the force tournament. And I haven't gotten a chance to watch against that tickets like in watching with my kids but I did remember telling you that whoever had an indoor court was going to win and this was before he started watching so I saw the headline that Cali Win and I'm giving the credit through being endorsed. Yeah yeah well look. I was watching him. Go Against Zach Levine. Yesterday and it started like it felt like it was either raining or snowing in upstate. Washington lives and it was just impossible for him at the end. The one thing if if they do this again enlist all hope that we don't have to We can get some some semblance of basketball at some point But yeah that's you gotTa neutralize the court somehow man. That's the that's makes a massive difference for sure so before I get to your Lebron story and US getting into our season ending awards because the regular season ended yesterday. The playoffs would have started tomorrow. I'm starting to get misty eyed. Let's not talk about that. We had a discussion here on the show ongoing before you came on so there is a story in the L. A. Times today. That basically says that. If you're wearing sweatpants while you're working from home you need to step up your game and just dress like an adult which I took umbrage with clearly. Sometimes I wear sweatpants to the office so So this spawned into a conversation. Where Bergman said well I get it this that and the other I get now during the pandemic but you know during regular times you should dress up like even to the grocery store. I'll put on some jeans or whatever nice shorts. I'm like Whoa wait. You're just enough to go to the grocery store so Mike Trudell is it. Okay to wear sweatpants basketball shorts to your local Ralph's pavilions or whatever wherever you shop is it. Is it okay to where the that type of clothing to the grocery store? Of course what what else? Why what other reason. Maybe than if you were like single and trying to meet somebody and impress. If that's your thing then I guess okay. I still think you're you're better off being yourself and who among us does not want to be comfortable now you and I for our jobs something. Where seats a lot? And so anytime that we're not having to be ensued. I'm guessing you're like me. You cannot find me outside of sorts. Or sweats you cannot you. I I. You will not see at the mall. You will not see me at target the grocery store without usually some type of Of Lakers short or or Minnesota Vikings or Manchester United. I'm reading my squad and wearing comfortable clothes. Twenty four seven. If I don't have to have a suit on and and I thought that I support that as a general rule in general statement and last you think you have a better chance of meeting. Somebody new and impressing them by wearing something. But I don't know man I say you could you wear. What's comfortable Bergman? Go Defend Yourself. It's not so much about wearing that. And this is the biggest thing that's where it's being. It's being presentable and like having your hair done or being clean and not wearing dirty sweat pants and dirty shirt. You have just wearing something. That's at least presentable to being outside all figure shower. I'll definitely like I'll put stuff in my hair for thirty seconds. So it'd be presentable pack for sure but I I don't think you you automatically look better in jeans and like a button up shirt. Then you do a nice pair of Jordan's with basketball shorts and tee shirt like it. Just it just depends on the style elements of it. Oh Okay Real. Quick Laura saying on on our text chat that. I'm not presenting it properly. Go ahead Laura presented to Mike. Okay so my thing. I agree with Greg because the way you were saying that he has to dress up. I don't think jeans dressing up is just comfortable. In Sweats Ville Lor. I loved jeans. They keep everything together. I just don't think jeans is dressing up. I think we need to make that comparison. If you're like I draw the line there. I think if I have to put on jeans I'm I feel I'm up at that point. This were if this were the nineties when Sodano and I were in high school like then and you and your Bojan that were super baggy and so comfortable now. You can't even buy jeans. That are that are anywhere near that baggy like I hate the skinny jeans and you can't even normal genes now. Were skinny so in other words. They're not comfortable mocking. I disagree by the the. It was like one hundred percent with the callers. We took like ten calls and they are on our side Trudell and on the poll on. Espn Los Angeles. Seventy four percent agree with us so you know what Bergman this is two days in a row take the L. I'm not taking on this one. The only thing I'll say for in terms of working at home I get that for people that are used to being interrupted nine to five and then there's some out some elements of of seriousness. That comes with like starting your day and putting a showdown and bunting it up Like Georgia and a Lotta Times. You and I are doing work at eleven pm. Watch the game on. And then the basketball reference Instruments like we're used to working in that context like just basically being swept all right agreed. I tell me about the cool. Lebron's store you've got on LAKERS DOT COM. I mean it's just a check from the Bronx we we're able to talk to some of us on a zoom call last week and you know the main point of course ethics that he was trying to get across just a paraphrase to some extent is what's most important is the general safety of everybody like he was almost every answer that he gave on. That was clear but then it was about the hope of returning back to basketball and I think that that of course is shared by everybody. And there's you know there's been some optimism in certain circles of late. There's been some pessimism a week ago. We really don't know exactly what's going to happen but what he's doing and and this is where he has you know somewhat of an advantage over some guys is. He's got a quarter of his house and he's got a like an elite. Maybe one of the best take take your pick. I don't know ten ten twenty high school freshman in the country Who can actually play with them? And so they're also going to gyms of his. Some of his friends have gyms that he was talking about where like he doesn't see anybody they just they clean up the whole thing out of you know. Wipe it down completely so no germs. Nobody's touching anything. He goes in plays basketball with brawny. gets out doesn't touch anybody and goes and goes home so he's doing what can sustain his best possible shape and that. George to me as I throw this back to you the reason I was initially interested in this whole thing about the lay offs in the Bryant. His body is because he has been building so perfectly until ideally from a physical standpoint into the playoffs. You saw him wrapping things up in Georgia and Miami. Got To see that first. Laker fans and get to see that last year we didn't get the Caesar Typical Lebron build up into these peaking as one hundred percent level. Come the play offs and so on the one hand would that interrupt the rhythm for the brand more than other people or since he's played the third most combined minutes in NBA history playoff and regular season behind only Kareem alone. Like does that in. It's own right just having him get some rest back from the regular season. Does that help or hurt him and his his quick take on. That was that basically. It's it's the the former that the rhythm it's broken is more of a thing on the wreck. His body is not wanting to rest right now but I that to me was kind of the interesting thing about thinking about this specific guy all that he's done in his years and the potential return to play scenarios. Yeah that's where I would have having not known what he said to you. That's where I would have leaned just based on his history like he knows his body as well as any athlete. I've ever covered. And I think that he ramps it up as you pointed out for a reason right like he wants to maximum Lebron as we get to the play offs and he was there and the Lakers had the big wins against the box and the clippers and he was playing. Great and Anthony. Davis was playing great and it just was it just a shame that that were went but I do like the fact that if the league gets back they're talking about a potential ramp up again with a little mini training camp. Which I think will help Lebron. And here's the other thing. Vogel talked about this. I think on his conference call to where he said. Look we gelled a lot a lot quicker than we thought and Lebron did too now that I remember and I think that the Lakers could do that again so I do feel confident that he can get back or they can get back to close to being what they were but yeah it's GonNa be a little bit of a challenge for him for sure yet. You you look the next one. I was GonNa make what you just said you said for me with. Vogel said that he was so impressed. With how quickly they pull things together and. Lebron has such a mastery of what this team needs to do. On the court off the court everybody goes along with that including ad as top lieutenants there and so that that does bring some of that optimism backwards even though it was the rhythm for the Brown and the team was building perfectly. They were about to clinch the number. One seed Lebron was about to overtake the conversation because he honest was going to be out for two weeks and all of that stuff is going to happen so they that that sucks but I do believe what you said echoing. Bogle on that. They can find a way to get that rhythm as soon as any other team can look. I feel good about it. I still think that that they're the championship favourite. Like I don't change that dynamic. I am curious to see though if we do get back. You know where it's going to be. I'm I saw yesterday that the mayor of Vegas was saying. She wants to reopen the city. We'll if that happens. I don't see the NBA go in there. I did see the Yahoo Story that made the suggestion of Disneyworld. I mean I'd being on that too I mean I. I joke a lot about Florida but I feel like Disneyworld is its own you know. Look it's its own entity it's its own private place right like you can be. They have thirty nine miles worth of land and hotels and places to play so I would feel good about that. I just want to get back on the court if we can and everyone gets the green light and we can move forward from a health perspective both from the general public side and of course from sports side yeah and there are so many. I just the other night. I was watching games having like many of us. Were Lakers Celtics and the imports about crowd? And just how much energy the player is derived from it. And that's GonNa Change Things Right. It's going to have the Astra Santorum fans in attendance if we are able to resume games and specifically to me for the Lakers not only because they had earned the right to have that that number one seed in the West. And who knows what would happen with Milwaukee with two weeks without Jaanus if they would have caught them. They're only two games back but like that kind of stuff mixed with how much the Laker fans travel. And how much you can just. How many veterans in every city that to me does affect the Lakers exponentially more than some other teams without the crowd. But that's just one of a hundred issues. George that are gonNA come up in this exceptional these and hopefully we will never see the likes of again. Yeah yeah it really is wild but yeah hopefully we can finish the season and we can get it out there. We Are you ready to quarantine if it have to in a bubble city. I'm ready I as I am obsessed with the NBA with watching games with covering games delivering as much possible. So yeah I almost any situation I am down for. Yeah all right now. Are you ready to do our year? End Awards are you ready for that have you. Have you put together your list? Have you compiled? I was texting with you yesterday. I was giving you my thoughts. You're like no no no no no no no just save it for the air. I was like okay. Sorry relaxed calmed down for the air. And not only that. But you're not getting Korean number six or number seven or whatever that was your own my God. I can't believe the computer loss. I feel like I was cheated in that thing. There was no way that I should have lost that thing the way I did but anyway. But you're right. I did Steal Kareem at six in that draft Mason in Ireland. We're going to do a dodgers one me and those guys pretty soon. So I'm curious to see how that turns out I Laura. Do you have the music? I'd like for this segment. Do you have that available? I don't hear it but but okay I hear. I know you're playing in the NBA N. B. C. Thank you yes got there it is there it is yes now. I hear you ended. So that's perfect. All right so where do you WanNa Start Your? Do you want to do our first? Second and third teams. You want to start off with the individual awards. I'm probably going to visual wars. But it's your shell all the further you know. Now let's go you're the guest and we'll go with the individual words. Mvp Go. I I WANNA I WANNA put one important disclaimer behind this. I think that we have to have the ability to project What was going to happen in especially because there still may be some regular season games. So that's an important caveat in saying that I had the Bron- passing Janas because he would have had. We played those two additional weeks without Janas. Playing basketball bus would have lost a couple more games and Lebron just for for many different reasons but from the start of the season everything that he did and raising his offensive game. It completely controlling the opposite. I'll put in building a five and a half game lead in the West. Compared to the bucks were playing in the East which had a seven seed that was thirty and thirty four and they played so many bad teams so often and only had a two-game difference in the win column plus point differential again gutter by three points. But you completely mitigating considering how much more time they played crap teams in the east. So I had the Bron- very narrowly edging out. Yannis for the top spot. And although would not be mad at anybody voting for because he was of course amazing too. I just I thought Lebron by a hair considering. He was about the pattern for that two weeks. So those are my top two Do you WANNA go back with yours before we get to the rest of the list. No Yeah Yeah I was going Lebron. I've I've made it very clear. I think Lebron is still the best player on the planet. So I'm going to go with Brian. And basically the way I look at it as this Jaanus as great as he's been and I think he's second. I voted him. Second Straw. Poll that we did it. Espn DOT COM if the if aliens came down if space jam was a real thing. Okay and the aliens came down and they weren't warm and fuzzy looking like the ones in the cartoon but they were like Independence Day looking and we needed to win a game for our life. My first pick is Lebron. So that's my guy right there every single time so that that's kind of my rationale thought also in the game that the Lakers beat the buck at home and this is my this. Is the one thing where you can still nitpick with the honest and you can't pick the number. Pick the numbers okay. The numbers were ridiculous. They were a little bit better than Lebron. The eight th. It's tough to argue the analytics but basketball is still about winning the championship. That's what the regular season is four and late in games. You can still limit Donnas by simply implant backing off and building a wall and making them shoot and that and that's why I still don't have the bucks as title-favourite like so many do is. Why pick the Lakers to win? And I think the clippers would also beat the bucks game series and even if Philly has been such a mess. I thought that they had a chance to beat the bucks. Just giving again the crush time situation so I I do when all the numbers. That's great but what you said. George if I gotTa Win a game in the reason is because the still has this major weakness that can be exploited and until back. Short up I he's not a better player than the brunt. I agree one hundred percent all right. We gotTA speed this up because we only have a couple more minutes. Let's just go quickly defensive player of the year. What do you got by the way I had? I had third Yokich fourth and fifth for. Mvp on defensive player of the year. Jimmy d Shoutout to Janice and Marcus smart and lesser extent. Gobert but I I thought for the team again number one in the in the West. He was guarded literally every position on the floor. Eighties the defensive player of the year. I also have Anthony Davis and to round out. My top five voted. Lebron Janas Chris Paul Number. Three number. Four and Luke number five most improved player. Who Do you got so this was tough for me. I wanted to go with Brandon Ingram because like just crushed you and the arguments about England. We had our son bring Yeah when I was tired and he had such an amazing season did show flashes of that any more opportunity. I think the guy who went through the most believe it or not it just mentioned his name was Luca Dodge and he just was tremendous You know he didn't play more minutes and yet his numbers took a huge leap any lead his team to a two. It's rick records. I got nuclear one ingram to tatum. Three devante grand for and then take your pick between Siachen Fred Vans Leach for five. See I just went with Bam. I think he's the most important player on that team. I think he he's even more important than Jimmy. The way they're playing at least the analytics will bear that out. Let's move forward and move quicker quicker quicker. Excuse me coach of the year. I got nick nurse. Nick Nurse One Vogel to Tailor Jenkins Three. Six men Harold six-man Yeah I'm fine with. I think I think if you if you pull that. Up the highest scoring benches. You took a step from last year better than the Williams now first-team. Here's my first team. Luca Harden Lebron Jaanus and Yokich Lucan heart and back court. Lebron Jaanus Yokich frontcourt. I agree the only thing that I would. I would have liked to have switched. What have been politely on over Harden but then you would have to move on. The Brandon are not only if you've got spirit because it depends forward. Yes the Brown Janas Luca hardening yoga. Okay so we agree second team. I've got Lillard Chris Paul Kawai ad and Joel embiid. They don't man I I'M A. I'm not surprised to the united shares from the League but I thought I think my exact same second team I and then third team before we wrap up with you here Russ Bradley beal Jimmy Butler tatum Rudy. Gobert a little different here. I don't I don't have Ross on there. Even though he was he was good in the last month. Wants us to change it up. I've got Jimmy Butler and tatum before. Kyle lowry Bradley. Beal lowry to me just edged past. Because I thought he's slightly more important overalls that team and then I did have rudy in the middle toughest. Omission was banned and then in addition Ben. Simmons and Chris Middleton would have been runners-up for me but yes a butler. Tatum Larry Bill and Gobert all right. Excellent stuff one. Last thing. I was having an argument with a buddy of mine which I felt was silly about Lebron and and Michael Jordan right like clearly. We always have all these debates right. We know and the last dance is coming up on Sunday. So he asked me. How many titles do you think Lebron would have won? If he would've played on those bulls teams like back then and I said six like I think I think that Jordan is the greatest player I've ever seen and I don't think Jordan probably loses to Dallas with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh and that's the one blemish Lebron career something. He'll even admit the other ones. He wasn't favored it. Jordan was always favorite in all those series that he played in. And if Lebron played with Horace Grant and Scottie or Scotty and coach and Rodman like. I don't think Lebron's losing any of those championships. What do you think it's just a tough? It's a tough swap. Though because like Jordan's perimeter jump shooting Which is needed on that both if you take that out. They didn't really have anybody else they could do that. You know and Lebron like has the ball a lot more than twenty situations which pipping sometimes to do. So I don't like I don't know the fifty would have had your data retrograde fit a little bit also but yeah but like. I think brownies right behind Jordan in terms of the all time legend. So I'm not going to necessarily take take a bunch of championship off the board for him at the at the tricky direct comparison to make my trudell your favorite sideline reporter from spectrum sports.

Thank you for asking appreciate good to hear that you guys are okay so tell me about your track and field career. Tell me about the events that get you the most excited when you were competing. So I started running my sophomore year of high school. And I'm super grateful for My high school coaches who took me in Kinda Year. You know a year later and then they kinda just search theory me to the future that. I'm GonNa have now Running for Vanguard University track and field. That's awesome I I do hurdles and The jumps so long jump and triple jump and it's Superfund because in the winter season I got to compete at the winter championships at Arcadia. High School as a tackle so I got to do five events that have just the hurdles in the long jump so that was that was very funny because when it comes to trying to compete for vanguard I'm going to be a decathlete so kind of get the ball rolling on that. Well tell me about the preparation for Taft Alon and eventually the decathlon right like wh how does that? How does that affect what you would normally do from a training perspective so it's five different disciplines so you? Kinda you have to learn. It's five different techniques and five different you know strategies for how to approaching event and everything. So it's definitely I had Coaches that helped me out for learning different events because I had to learn Shot put high jump and I had to run the one thousand and then the other events were the The hurdles and the long jump so it was definitely a challenge to learn those new events for me and so but having the help that I had and now going into the future having the help that I am going to have with the coaching staff at Vanguard I'm looking forward to it so no Latorre joining us here corona high school track and field. You had mentioned earlier though that you kind of got a little bit of a late start. Why why was that? So I had played Baseball Baseball's kind of been the big thing in our family. Ever since I was four years old But Sophomore year or the summer going into my sophomore year. I was It was like you know what I think. I WANNA try country. 'cause it always been in the back of my mind and crossing all sport so I went out to cross country and the thing about running though. Is that people are like. Oh I can't do it. I you know it's too hard but I'm like I say of practice. I had like a five mile. Run or something like it was. It was a long run. It's like five miles and I was like. Oh Man I want to give up like this is this is terrible. This is so far. I'm super tired. I don't WanNa do this anymore. But I stuck with it. And with the help of my coaches I think you do track and field That spring and you know the rest is history at that point. That's awesome. That's a cool little story man for sure we're super proud of you obviously and thankful to have you on here so tell me about academics though. What's the what's the lane? Therefore you moving forward for one more time what. What Lane will you go into from an academic standpoint as you move forward So I'm going to major in College Or visiting ministration and Kinda trying to decide which Which avenues but that's for me 'cause I mean I know what I have my. I want my option garden what I What goals are in life? So those are the two Things that I'm looking to study those are certainly to completely different things. So what what drew you to one or the other. Yeah my goal is to go into healthcare in some sort of way whether it be administrative side or the Physical Therapy Route right right. Gotcha Gotcha well look as an athlete. Just knowing your own body right helps with kinesiology. I don't think there's any question having some having been someone who competed at the levels. You have that's certainly helpful to know your own body and then be able to apply it to others. If that's the route you take. Yeah definitely for sure. And what was your favorite subject in school while you were in high school like what? What did you love the most definitely the sciences that I took part of the stem Biomedical Pathway and so that is geared towards Those kind of perfect for me. 'cause it's geared towards Medicine and health care and it's definitely scientific so scientists definitely biology anatomy chemistry. Those are kind of like some of my favorite subjects. Gotcha real quick. Before we let you go a couple more for you here real quick. How are you staying in shape now? Like what are you doing to stay in shape now since school is in session so we don't have access to attract unfortunately so I We have gym that. We set up on our our in our garage. So since I can't do lots of running training I do a lot of like cardio weights and stuff to kind of get myself a little bit stronger and start doing some alcohol before I You know before the upcoming season starts Gotcha and then of course I would presume that from academic standpoint there's a lot of zoom classes in your future or at least at the present time definitely I school. I'd give a quick little shahtar principal on the administration for district doing a great job of having a judge to this inflicting which luckily for us. It's not to two different because a lot of the work that we did was already online so was an easier transition For most of us. But I'm thankful for teachers and administration for Kinda working to get that adjustment To make it easier on us. 'cause I know it was seniors. It's a little like almost done like we're so close.

Been Lines how are you George question for you Bergman and I Laura got into it. The audience is on my side here but I'm curious to see how you feel since you go to. Irwan to get like you know cashew milk. All the time sweatpants to the grocery store yes or no. It depends what type of sweat pants. We are here in Los Angeles. If I'm coming looking like Kevin durant before shootaround yes. I can wear sweatpants to the grocery store. But if I'm looking like George Sodano when The white kids Outta town day. Four No. You cannot wear sweatpants to the grocery store so this is Los Angeles and some of my friends do have three four hundred dollars sweatpants so they can wear them to the grocery store. No I get it. You're going Lululemon. You're spending hundreds of dollars on your sweatpants five. But I'm I'm rocking. Look I'll tell you right now when I'm rocking old school champion. They're new to just say that their New York also old school champion sweatpants Navy blue. A dodgers Nike t shirt and a blue north face jacket. I'm rocking the pavilions later with this. If I've got to with my mask thesis on you can't pull that off because the champion swept hand. That's a strong. Look but can we match them with the champion Hoodie? Like let's get you in the onesie like the full matching track. I'd like to see that. Look but now. You're mixing Nike with champion. And the dodgers different shades of blue and different hues rollover. Now this this is what's your what's going to happen to you if when you have children you're going to care less about matching as long as it's the same color you're gonNA feel and it doesn't have last night's like baby food on it correct correct wash. Yes exactly this much George on these quarantine days when I wake up and I take a shower and I put on real close. I feel more productive than I do. And all of a sudden it's three o'clock and I'm still in my pajamas so I think everybody should try to get up and put on some big white closed in the morning. You get what you say to power put on your big boy pants. Yeah there you do that the reason this even came up because the La Times. Deputy Fashion Editor wrote a story. Today about about if you're working from home dress like an adult and I'm like the hell with that sometimes. I go and sweatpants to the office to do the radio show. So what what? Now all of us I have been known to pull off the Jeff Cap. Look around the seven ten offices on those days for sure a couple of quick things for you. I know you wanted to talk about the WNBA draft. But I do I wanNA talk. Nba With you. Because I just had trudell on and we could do this quickly. I WanNa just have your thoughts on kind of some of the season ending. Awards like who you would give it to So like if I told you right now because technically in theory the playoffs was supposed to start tomorrow. The regular season was supposed to end yesterday. Who would you have voted for? Mvp If you had a vote. I think he won the MVP the weekend before the shutdown and that was Lebron Lebron James that performance. He put on over those days staples against the clippers against the box. When whole basketball community was watching me solidified his place in the MVP race The season he put on from start to finish has been flawless. They were like nine thousand nine hundred all outside of Los Angeles or something crazy so in year. Seventeen I'M GONNA go with Lebron James. I'm with you. He's my guy. I've been touting him the whole time and I felt like as you pointed out that we can kind of cemented. It was like his heisman moment. Right like I feel like that's kind of the way I would describe it. You know what's Interesting George? You and I've had the privilege throughout our careers to get to work with the best in our fields right Robin Roberts or Mike will bond like Lebron James. The truly great ones they elevate everyone by being in their presence. So you know when you're doing a hit with will bring your a game just because they're they're so it brings everyone else up another level and you saw that with Lebron this year and that entire Laker Rosser. Which can ship from Dwight Howard? Jared Dudley. He'd say Casey. Everybody contributed this season. And that's because of the Brown. I think defensive player of the year I went with yeah. They're ridiculous to watch defensively. They're so long and leading the league blocks or he's right at the top yet to watch him tonight out of the way he's able to switch on screens to smaller players to see it. Every night here in Los Angeles was really special though the first part of the season. So yeah I'm GonNa go with ideas. Well most improved player. I had Bam Bam on a BIOS. Been fantastic he's been. I been really a joy to watch him. Come into his own and to see Miami rally around him Most improved player award would probably go to Bam. Yeah he was an all star is a guy who a couple of years ago people didn't even really know so I'm GonNa go with Obama's well George Coach of the year. I had nurse really in Toronto. The defending champions and a bunch of G. League guys. They called up in the middle of the season and beat the Lakers. That's a testament to the organization as much as it is to. He's got coach. I how about how about Billy Donovan Down in Oklahoma? That's a good one. Yeah I I like what the Sunday because nobody had them in the playoff run let alone being a tough first round out some though billy. I actually had three has my number three on. Mvp when I voted on the ESPN struggle. So I'm with you on the thumbing. His performance and a horse competition dropped him before. No it did not. It did not that is not technically part of the regular season. So I'm very disappointed in showing John Right rookie of the year. We agree on that like we're not we don't RJ RJ RJ. No chance for RJ. Six Fan I would herald IQ. Over Lou I guess he's more I mean there's can. They split the vote in the same. No better player for them this year than Louis. Louis wasn't very efficient this year. Yeah it's true treadmills Treasury was and they are so undersized as is starting soup pots that they bring him off the bench able to keep that toughness. So I'm GONNA go with. I'm GonNa Shock on the Sodano cards. I like transmitted the year. Why not well? You didn't go truck because you didn't have nurse but anyway there you go. How excited for the last dance. Are you before we get to your Disney review? I just want a lot of judge Bush ler a lot of Randy Brown. I want a lot of behind the scenes Scott Burrell. We're going to get twenty minutes now. Of course I'm excited. I mean watching Michael Jordan. You know with Robin Roberts. The other day he's done things to show his competitiveness like key. Sunde all of us with his zoom livestream background like competing on. Gma show everyone. I have the best background. Like it's GonNa show a side of him that we all knew and we all have heard stories about but maybe to see it up close on on an airplane ride when he's playing cards against someone refuses to lose before everyone gets off the plane or whatever lost footage. They are able to show us on Sunday night. I'm there for him. Did you know that Michael Thompsons younger brother is the guy who put this thing together right like you know he filmed all this footage? Michael thompsons younger brother Andy Works for. Nba Films Family not like inducted into the Smithsonian like their national treasures like what really Michael thompsons brother just died happened to put together this entire documentary about the greatest athlete of the twentieth century. It's insane pitched. He pitched the idea to Adam silver when he was running. Nba Entertainment Ramona told us the story the other day Andy worked for MBA films. And he put all the footage together. He's one of the producers some credible man and you know the NBA. It's another reminder the NBA at its core. It's always been a media company. It's always been an entertainment company whether it was the Michael Jordan comply with me tapes. Or you know these behind these behind. The scenes. All access documentaries. I guess person foremost it's a content product and the fact that they have the entire world excited about watching footage from twenty five years ago. It's just a remarkable a testament to the power of basketball to to galvanize people inspire them no doubt about it. I tell me about the WNBA draft tonight and the female. Kobe Supreme Tonia fired up. Man You can feel it on social media today. A LOT OF PEOPLE TALKING. There's GonNa be some trade. The sparks at the twentieth pick. They have three picks throughout the draft. They might get sinead sister Erica. Which would be amazing. They'd have three a Kulik as here in Los Angeles and they're all on quarantine like lockdown together. So if she gets drafts far. They're all together. It's a great moment but Sabrina is obviously talk of the draft. She's GonNa go number one to the New York liberty who are coming off two losing seasons after bill lamb beer laughter. Vegas but Sabrina who obviously struck a chord with Colby and had dominated up. Oregon. Is that trend. That backpack transitional star who can transcend star who can take the W. Two places? It hasn't been yet. Hopefully these women can get back on the court. We WanNA see basketball and every shape and form as soon as possible so to see Sabrina. Go to New York tonight. I think it's going to be a moment. And hopefully she can get on the court soon and we can get the the liberty back in the in the mix and the WNBA has been a few down years. Yeah and maybe New York will actually win a championship for all right so in basketball at least all right so we'll take a hey lapd. La Title was the sparks. So there you go exactly Neka hit and that's exactly exactly so give me your Disney review today showed since there was the family sing-along yesterday on ABC in the Sodano family had some fun watching that with my five year old daughter. We were watching. Inspired me to tell you. Today's topic would be this. So what do you got for me? Lines all right so no live action movies. These are classic. Disney animated films in here rise top ten at number ten outside the box nightmare before Christmas written by Tim Burton. I watched every holiday season motion animation at number nine cocoa. Just a wonderful film exploring deals. Where does the history behind it and Mexican culture? A Beautiful Film Number Eight on the list. Mwana also a deep dive into a culture. This of course in Hawaii with Dwayne Johnson and I love Moana. The songs are beautiful at number seven if the first ten minutes don't make you weep like a teething infants and there's something wrong with your soul. I am going with up which was nominated for best picture. As was wally at number six another Disney Pixar movie Walli about I'd robot and outer space picks up garbage and goes on an adventure a beautiful film number five. It takes on new meeting with viewing as you get older fantasia. This one represents to me the classic Disney Animation of Mickey Mouse and Allison Wonderland Peter Pan. It's beautiful to watch the live orchestra. I've done that on a wonderful summer's night out at the Hollywood bowl. Them for five fantasia number four and my list. The original Aladdin Robin Williams should have got an Oscar nomination for his role the genie but Aladdin Princess Jasmine. Don't let the Will Smith one taint the iconic. I one from his early nineties on nine hundred ninety three. I think Aladdin at number four number three The best picks The best of the toy story movies toy story one I surprise hit at the time. Woody Buzz light year become institutions and Childhood and I just love that whole premise and the whole world. The idea that your toys are alive when the parents are gone and away number two again the first five minutes will make you cry finding Nemo probably my favorite of the Pixar movies and Ellen Degeneres is Dorrie got her own movie nemo still hold up to follow his great in Nemo. I love it and Albert Brooks soups number. One Lion King. It's the perfect movie. The original. It's the Best Disney movie. I'm going with James. Earl Jones is and The Lion King the original. So that's our Disney top. Ten Ben Lines Movie Review. I before we let you go. I started this show talking about how in the NFL draft. The lions are open for business. You know every year someone in that top five is open for business and I think that the chargers if they wanNA make their imprint here in La okay the rams that first season where the cure for insomnia with Jeff Fisher. But right after that SEAN. Mcvay and company. They grabbed it. They were electric. They were passionate. They were fun then they doubled and tripled down went to the Super Bowl. They already had a more established fan base here in southern California particularly in La because of their timing Anaheim twenty years ago. I feel like there's a lot of football free agents if you're the chargers don't you have to trade up to get to a to get that guy to make your imprint. You don't even have to play him this year because you can play tyrod Taylor. Give him the red shirt year. And then you have your guy moving forward. Wouldn't that be the move? The chargers need to make you gotta do something you gotTa have somebody to put on the billboard. You gotTa have somebody in this town. That's GonNa get attention in the conversation around sports. Look I mean every Saturday and Sunday when the world is back open and back to normal you got the biggest stars in the world playing right here in our backyard Mike Trout and mookie Betts to Lebron James and Clyde Leonard. I mean the list goes on so if the chargers are going to stay relevant are going to have a real fan base that exists here in Los Angeles which I can't seem to tap into yet They gotta get they gotTa make a move. And I like Tyrod Taylor. I think he's very underrated quarterback serviceable quarterback who might get them. Eight wins this year. But that's not going to sell. Tickets is not not gonNA have so five filled up with charger fans when the eagles come to town or win the chiefs or the raiders. Come to town like this. This is a tough sports town. It's a star driven town and you got a an and stars stars because they're good. Don't you throw out somebody because you need a name? I think at the end of the day to is going to be a solid pros. You gotta take a flyer. He gotta take a chance if you're the ball so it'd be very disappointed if they don't yeah. I'm with you wholeheartedly yet. The chargers are struggling to sell seats in that new stadium. That's coming up and to your point man. You gotTa have someone on the Marquee. That's where I started the conversation I remember when I lived in Pasadena I went to the Pasadena playhouse. You know why because Al Pacino was doing Tennessee Williams play called. God looked away and only in this town could Al Pacino an Oscar Award winner do a play in Pasadena. Okay and it'd be ahead. This is what you're competing with chargers Pacino in Pasadena. You need to go get to A. Yeah Yeah I liked it George. I like it. Melvin Gordon. Once played here is not something. That's going to get you to call out spend money on the chargers so I hope they make a move on Sunday. I'm glad we have draft. Wnba draft tonight the NFL draft. Next week I give them something to get excited about. No question about it. Thanks for coming on brother. We'll talk to you next week. Yeah Lots of love. Lots of love to the city man stay safe.

Espn Los Angeles coverage begins at five Pacific on ESPN radio and the ESPN APP here on Espn Los Angeles. So couple of things. We have audio right of Joe Kelley so basically Bergman Joe Kelley was correct by Brian. He was warming up right or just practicing outside his yard and he's got a netting setup show he doesn't lose balls and he's got balls that he can work with and doesn't have to just grab a bucket or whatever and he can retrieve the balls easier and now the the netting is set up right in front of his house so basically the window is right by the netting right so it's covering most of the window but there's some of a window showing and then all of a sudden. He decided to start working on a new pitch. What pitch was that a change? Yeah he was working on a on a change. It'd be has one already. But he was working on China you to work it out and things went awry so we have the audio of him working out I guess his son or someone in his family was filming this while he was doing it and needless to say it didn't go well for him or Mrs Kelly in this particular situation because you're gonna hear a really loud noise and we're all going to know what it is. Let me hear it. Yeah wondering quarantines Goin- JOE is working on a change. Yeah Mrs Mrs Kelly not happy with Joe Right there. That's for sure. Could you imagine he's his wife is pregnant with twins too so if you think she's going to get annoyed pretty easily that's one way to get out and God bless her. Okay listen being pregnant. I would never know what it's like but I've seen my wife do it twice and it's not fun to can't be fun. Having twins gotta be incredible like good Lord. Yeah like dude. You're a professional pitcher man. How do you hit the netting because I mean if you watch Joe Kelley all year last year we did when he got wild wild man like you like Wild Joe Kelley right now relax and this is what he did? I mean what are you doing putting the netting even anywhere near a window? Yeah Yeah just put it up against a fence. You know what I'm saying like. If it goes over the fence you could just go. You could call your neighbor me like hey sorry got over there. Stay six feet away. You know what I mean like. There's ways to go around this. So apparently Laura says that Joe has has has apologized to his wife and I guess he has. We have some sound of Joe after the fact let me hear Joe Kelley said Best Bar Baggers. I saw this clean player so this thing. Listen Listen Missing. Is is hard as a rock ten faucet right so with the Baseball Games? Some throwing the changer her. Some trying to make gyro like this. Yeah so it. It cuts in turns in Hovers Food Window. Best part about it is I go inside. I look at the ground glass in the kitchen. So maybe under the door through the kitchen kitchen. Blessing the bathroom bustling all over the bed room. The sheets the frog into the closet and then I send my Nice Little Clink. Waigel ball by the closet door on the other side of the room. I look at it again. Grab up the ball and I'm going now. That's a big mess. Be spending a lot of money and my baby's here in two days in and around see I'm picking my ball and go through for twenty minutes. Got Them at program. Came back inside. Got My shot back. Twenty three hours which is like nine to Common Abra Cross. The street all exists in today but harp got anything for me. To gag type. I go camping on their burning over. Show him the damage up the whole window around duck. David I through this thing. Let's say I'm not very good at throwing this thing yet. I'm really good at the fastball. Changeup you gotta turn and throw it not as good the change as you can tell in the video on but that was not There and so there was Joe Kelley W. E. in Boston explaining the whole scenario. Now I thought the fast most fascinating part about that was him saying that even though the window was broken and he told his wife. Who's having the babies in two days? That's a pretty big distinction there. Hey I gotta finish my throwing regiment. Listen I feel like my wife makes a lot of sacrifices for me. Okay she does. She takes care of the kids. Because I'm away allied right like I'm on the road a lot doing MBA games but if that happened to me there's no way we're not cleaning up the mess. I before I go back to finishing up my throwing regimen now Bergman. We know that your girlfriend won't even let you out of the house in sweatpants. So how for sure. You can't break a window and keep going back to your throwing regimen. Oh No if I have to do is throwing regiments eight you stop you clean up and then you go back outside. That has the. That's it's crazy that you clean up i. I don't care what you have to do. It has nothing to do with was girlfriends wives. Anything you can do the cleanup I laura if your boyfriend broke the The window would you let him go back to his throwing regimen if he was a major league pitcher. Are you telling his asked to clean it up? Now he's GonNA clean it up. I know hands down. You're not going anywhere outside until my house is clean. 'cause you 'cause that man. I mean that's pretty big coupons. You know what I'm saying to like. Hold on honey. I'll clean it later. Let me finish. My last thirty five pitches MINOA win. Hell that flies anywhere else. Does that fly within the household? No chance never zero. I can't believe that he did that that he just went through. Well hold on. I got it. Yeah no no chance at all speaking of no chance or at least at USC JT Daniels. We didn't even get to this yesterday or even earlier today. Out Transfer Portal. He's going to go somewhere else. Maybe Michigan maybe Tennessee right where his former offensive coordinator is. T- Martin Jt Daniels done. Are You surprised the JT Daniels eras over? Bergman I'm not look heathen slowest was really damn good yeah Keita's Lewis was a fantastic and jt Daniels. He got hurt and it was just one of those. Wally pipped situations. Slow is came in and just completely he well. He outplayed. Jt Daniels. So now you go with the hot hand there. He wasn't gonNA play there. So why be there? No I get it like. He's got to go. And it's why like the transfer portal for the kids. I don't think there's any doubt about that But yeah like slow is the future. He's more mobile. He's actually a better fit for what they WANNA do. They WANNA run with Graham Heroin Company so like yeah I get it like he did get wally pipped by a young kid who it's crazy because while it is like this was a three star recruit and he played like a five star recruit. He was incredible slowness. So I J. T. Daniels can pick up his career somewhere else because I thought jt Daniels was going to be really good quarterback. I just didn't know how he was gonNA fit within this particular construct at USC. So look that's big time college athletics and there have been plenty of transfers that have picked up and done well guas Joe FLACCO. He worked out pretty well for him. So we're done here. Thanks to my trudell. Thanks to our senior shoutout. Thanks to Ben Lyon. Thanks TO GREG AND LAURA. Thanks to you guys tuning in and defending me wearing my sweatpants to the grocery store. Have a great weekend. We love you talk to you on Monday.

The Sedano Show (HR 1): Todd Gurley isn't worried - he's now a Falcon

"Yeah what's up with you here seven ten? Espn presented by Progressive Insurance. All our guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. It's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless everything for less only at Walmart Straight. Talk giving you that full court cellphone coverage that you need man to g half the cost of the big carriers again savings may vary go to straight. Dot straighttalk dot com for more information so the Tom Brady situation. As now been finalized he signed the deal. We've got him. We've got the money we've got todd. Gurley we've got his money's going to be so let's break this down real quick? We're GONNA HAVE KIRK MORRISON AND CORPORATE. Greg going to join us here in just a moment. They're getting set up and look. Obviously I'm sure at this point. Maybe you know maybe you don't know but we're all doing our shows from home and from different locations so this may be a little clunky than usual so just bear with us. We're doing our best to stay on the air to talk to you guys will still do the calls with you guys if you like or you can tweet me at. Sodano if you have a small business that you own that is providing goods and services in your community Restaurants obviously things of that nature. I know that there's a stay at home order. Delivery restaurants and takeout restaurants are allowed to stay open so just so you know so if you the businesses that are allowed to stay open pharmacies anything involving food grocery stores farmers markets food banks convenience stores take out and delivery restaurants. Banks will be open. Gas Stations will be open laundromats laundry services and basically all essential local government and law enforcement offices and government programs and services. That's open so if you're involved in any of those if you own a gas station if you know a gas station that is available to you all that stuff. If you've got something you can provide goods and services that is considered essential. That doesn't mean you're not staying home. Let's let's kind of focus on that. Let's focus on the restaurants and folks like that and if you're open and you're providing Service for the people convenience store restaurants whatever hits up eight seven seven seven ten years. Eight seven seven seven ten three seven seven six. So let's start with Brady. The details are in Brady. Two years fifty million dollars includes a nine million dollar incentives bonus four and a half million dollar incentives per year on each particular year. What else do we have here? More on the Brady details. Your one base salary fifteen million roster bonus ten million next year thing fifteen million ten million on the roster bonus up to two point five million per year if he's top five in passer rating. Td's passing yards. Completion percentage Those are some of his incentives more incentives for if you make the playoffs how far he goes into the playoffs etc etc etc. So that's the deal with Tom. Brady as far as todd. Gurley concern now this is interesting girlies twenty twenty salary the rams are GonNa be paying the majority of it. Seven and a half million dollars. The Falcons will be paying six million dollars. Okay the The total earnings. Then he's got an offset about two and a half million dollars. A total earnings are eleven million dollars. So Kirk is here now. Let's start with the Brady stuff and we'll work our way into girly. Kirke feeling good. Good Yeah I'm all good man. Just finish circle time with the family and the kids so we're trying to keep as much of a routine as possible of school going so I just had share time. I'm done with my share time and now I'm on work time with my guy. George Okay love it. I love it. I love that. Everyone's good I'd so brady. What do you make the contract? I mean we were talking about it last earlier this week on the morning show. We were thinking man. Maybe it'll be thirty thirty five million a year. It doesn't seem to be anywhere near that. Are You surprised? No not surprised at all. He's been working for you from a discount for a while right when he's since he's been with the Patriots he's been between that fifteen to eighteen million dollar range and at some point he's like. I just can't keep doing this. It's almost a disrespect. Not only me my agent that we continue to take these discounts at the quarterback position and yet our team is not you know. Probably have the most talented guys right. Brady didn't have those weapons issue and he's like I'm taking a discount yet. You can't give me what I need in terms of wide receiver rock retiring. We didn't replace that position so I knew the contract. Come in between twenty to twenty eight million. I know he wasn't going to get into the Russell. Wilson Aaron Rodgers Jared Goff money per year. But I think this is about right where he's at and there'll be some incentives for Tom Brady in terms of getting that contract up to about thirty million but I am not surprised. He wasn't going after top dollar for in the market to me. This is a perfect deal for Tom. And then Tampa Bay so the first thing I think of is so new. England wasn't willing to do this like that's kind of crazy to me but they've never done this right. This is who they are right. You look at all the players I've said before George of Guys who kind of want the big contract or they're over the edge right. We can all say that Tom Brady is what he's on the back nine and I don't even on the back nine. He play like the last three holes. Right he's on seventeen he's not on eighteen so I believe that when you're there the Patriots they'd rather get something for you the nothing and with Brady understanding that and reworked his contract to allow him to be free right now. I think the Patriots New and remember. This isn't like Bill Belichick. Didn't want Jimmy Garoppolo couple years. Back before Robert Kraft came in and vetoed a possible situation where Jimmy Garoppolo could have stayed and Tom Brady would have left. So this is kind of been in the works for wow that. They knew they weren't going to be able to pay Tom. Brady a top top dollar at the position. I don't think bill belichick valued that position like that outside of Brady and it once they find out you're going down this very hard for them to give you that type of contract so this is kind of where the Patriots have always been. They get rid of players a year to before they really can make the big money. No I get it look. They've done it right. Lawyer Malloy Who was Richard Seymour? Seymour Amy Collins. You can go Chandler Jones. Who was the defensive player of the runner up defensive player of the year this year to Stefan Gilmore? Who actually the Patriots did pay by the way but this is just who they are. This is what they do but everyone thought it was going to be different George. There was going to be exempt right. Exempt Tom Brady was exempt from this. Tom Brady is Mr Patriot when you think of the Patriots. The first person you think of as Tom Brady before you think of Belichick but this just goes to show you that Bill Belichick say bigger than me and that's why the situation is It's where it's at right now. It is wild all right. What do you make of the girly stuff? I mean you called it. You said the rams would probably have to pay a good chunk of this thing. We knew that they were GONNA have to get rid of todd at some point and and I think todd knew this and I've talked to people in his camp. You know before hand during this off season especially around the super bowl time. They knew that something was going to have to happen. It was just that you weren't going to get the kind of Todd. Gurley that you had got in previous seasons and so the rams new that and if you're going to be paying a guy that kind of money you're going to need him to do. I'll have a lot more production. Which tied didn't have todd and Rushworth thousand yards last year in the NFL rushing. Four thousand yards almost seems like a second nature but to me. I think the really the point was was that tug early really had an amazing contract. He got an early he demanded. I want the contract early. He signed it after three years and basically he walks away. George just put like this when we look at the running back market. I know a lot of guarantees but the last two seasons it was basically two years thirty four million dollars maybe. Thirty four and a half. I believe so. Tog early walked away with seventeen million per year at the running back position for the last two seasons. And then on top of that like you mentioned he's going to get another seven million in the offset from the Atlanta Falcons I think it's a great for him. He's going back to a place where everybody loves him. Trust me. They love him down there. Sec COUNTRY ATLANTA. Right of Athens where he went to college at the University of Georgia. So for him. It's like a homecoming. Yeah I think it's a good fit for him But man would have been great. Had He gone over to like Seattle or something right or going. Somewhere else where. I really think that he would have an opportunity to get back to a super bowl. I just don't know that Dan Queen and the Atlanta Falcons and how they're going to use tiger leave could be best for his career at the point at the moment. Yeah it is interesting now. What a Z. Get how much zeke making. While I think got close to wow I want to say I gotTa Look. I think eighteen or something like that sounds right do. He's the last of the running backs getting paid that like. Do you think that because we're seeing running back not even get close not getting more than what nine ten million eleven million? That's that's generally what they're getting now. Do you see that that being the new normal. It's been the new normal right and and that's what happened when the rams kind of broke broke form they pay todd. Gurley early and everybody was like. Wow then David Johnson got paid right and now you're starting obviously Zeke got paid. And now you're seeing a little bit of a pause right. You've seen a little bit of a little hesitant now right. You're you're looking at a team like the Tennessee. Titans not paying a long term deal possibly for dear Henry. He's giving him the franchise tag. I would alarmed right. If think about the next running backs were coming up. Think about a guy like Christian. Mccaffrey if you're watching. What happened when Todd Gurley? Are you really thinking about giving Christian McCaffrey that long long term deal or is it something that you say? Hey you can kind of wait and look at the teams in the Super Bowl Jordan. They were all running back by committee right while we spend a bunch of money on this or the money is invested in the quarterback and then give them a couple of quality that can share the workload. Yeah it is pretty impressive when you think about it like Like what someone like him produces and then of course you'll see what the he ends up. Getting right I may. I just think it's it's crazy George. That The San Francisco Forty niners. Who were in the Super Bowl this year? Their fourth string running back to start the season Rahim Mostaert right was there starter in the Super Bowl squad. He was like yes. Dude he was just a dude. And I think that's Kinda the motto. Nfl teams are kind of. There's a couple of guys who are really transcendent running backs. Obviously Zeke. Elliot falls in that. Category Zeke by the way fifteen million average salary. Yeah and todd and todd. Gurley walked away with two years of seventeen and a half million dollars so to me. Look he got paid for what he did for the last two years there and then what he was the year he came off of when the offense player of the year. But it just goes to show you that and like Tom Brady said his post today this. Nfl is about what you did last year. Not what you're doing you know in previous years right. What have you done for me lately? League and Tog early lately we know just has not been that productive back. We saw previously in his career. I would even take a step further. I would say it's not about. What have you done for me last year? I would say Brady's wrong I would say it's like very much like what baseball has has been doing for many. Which is they pay you on future. Production not past production. You know what I'm saying like. What can you bring to the table moving forward? Yeah I can see that but I would also say with the NFL. Outside of like the rookies. Who get paid you know before they even take a snap. I think now in the NFL. It's more so okay What did you do last year because the minute those numbers go down? That's the reason. People are starting to Rework Restructure Contracts Philip Rivers. We've thought he would be a charger forever. Now he'll be taken snaps in Indianapolis next year. What have you done for me lately? Speaking of the chargers trade Turner. They're five time pro bowl offensive guard who they traded for from Carolina will join us at eleven thirty. We'll chat with him about what's going on. And just kind of his getting ready for his new surroundings. I guess coming up next. We'll continue this discussion on early because I think that there's a lot of pressure now on the rams in a number of different fronts. I want to get to that. Plus the Lakers have two players test. Positive the Bronwyn on instagram live. Yesterday we got a lot of stuff to get into with the Lakers. So we'll get to that in just a second Saddam with you here on seventeen an espn presented by our friends at Shell where they protect your engine. Winter using pennzoil synthetic motor oil made from natural gas not crude oil and our friends at capital one. As soon as I find their read there. It is four percent cashback on dining and entertainment to present a grocery stores and one percent on all of their purchases. What's in your wallet? So Kirk Morrison hanging out with us. Greg is there as well Corporate Gregor you there yes I am. I'm right here. Oh very loud corporate greg because I have got this gaming headset on. Not using just a regular headset. So you know I got like a whole setup where the microphone comes to my mouth like professional style Nice. Yeah I've just got a regular microphone but I'm fine with that so couple of things Bergman you brought this up to me and I'm curious to get kirk dots on it about the Lakers and the Lakers have two players. That tested positive. And Look I think all this stuff is very personal right like it's just you either want to tell people that you have it. I can understand like Idris. Elba was talking about the actor about how he came out and told people he had grown virus. After he saw Tom Hanks did he felt like. Oh maybe there won't be a stigma to it or anything. Kevin Durant a lot of players. Have come out. I saw Marcus. Smart Celtics came out to toby as corona virus No no Lakers have come out to tell us that they have it. And that's their prerogative. I'm not saying they should or shouldn't but I think Bergman you brought up the question like you know it's one of those things where you start to wonder if you're someone who's had interactions with them right like I mean. Obviously the team will probably know who hasn't who doesn't have it but you're there are plenty of other people come in contact with them right right so basically you know when you when players walk off the court they give got people high fives and they do whatever you know and so what if you got a high five from someone. They've got a high five from somebody else. And you know there's just feel like it's possible that maybe they should come out and say because if it's let's say. I don't want to say who has it because that's just saying somebody that I don't know no we don't know right. You don't know so if you if it's somebody random like Quinn Cook. I don't know it's just a guess or not. Even don't even just say we don't have to say a random player X. Random Player X. Gives you a high five and random player? X has the corona virus. They have a right to tell the people that they've come in contact with right Yeah I guess maybe maybe people that come in contact with regularly right but George I would say this though and and to kind of to your Point Greg. I really believe this because I go back to my playing career and I remember. Just how a game day would would be for me so game day would be drive up the stadium and when I drove up. Here's the parking lot attendant. I'm shaking hands. How you doing good to see you? Hey have a good game today. Morrison Cool so I've interacted with them. Shook hands okay. Now I've drove into the parking lot parked and we know especially the Lakers. When you get out of your vehicle there's two or three people right there waiting for you to grab whatever you need our help you escort you and to the locker room right until you're shaking their hands you're interacting now you walk into the tunnel and you know obviously you see people win in stadium. Attendance an arena tendons. Who also you. You're shaking hands. I mean how many times have we seen guys go back to a stadium at word arena. They played in the amount of people who they say. Hi to on the way just to the locker room then you get to the locker room and you come out to the floor for warm ups when you get to warm ups. How many people are there to watch warm-ups a ton of people and they WANNA shake hands. They want to do that. And you have the people who have the VIP excess and they're on the floor to take a picture to get a handshake and you're doing all of that. And I bring that up because I would say before a tip off or before even a coin toss of a game for me and my career I probably would have interacted with maybe fifty to a hundred people. And we're talking about just before the game so to go back to your point Greg. I think this is a great one is that you just want to make sure like. Hey if I've interacted with that person where we had a handshake a hug or whatever it may be you. WanNa make sure that I just want to just double check in know who that person possibly for my own sake right. I mean that's what I what I'm thinking about. Is that if you're a player? I Look I get that. You want to keep your privacy and you don't want to say and then say that you're that you have it especially wherever you are and to come back. I just feel like it's something that they should tell the fans because people were at that game against the Brooklyn Nets in Brooklyn next. Got It so it could have been the other Brooklyn Nets Besides K. D. people definitely shook Hansard give high fives or whatever it's K. D. I'm glad that he came out and said something. Because people that hit him up at the pump. Maybe like oh I should go get tested. Well here's what I would say I would say that again. You know there are privacy laws for all this stuff and there are laws on the person to want to say that and they shouldn't be shamed into saying let's start. Oh No I'm not saying that's not what you're doing. I'm just saying I know that that someone will take what you're saying and go to that. Extreme is what I'm saying. So here's what I would say. There is no stigma attached to this. Because I do think a large portion of the country is going to get it. I'd be surprised if less than a quarter or a third of the country at some point doesn't have it so I think that if that is the worry. If there is a stigma much like Idris Elba thought. There was a stigma. I wouldn't worry about that if I were. That person would say well. I just think that also to you know there was a fan in in Utah believe or with Oklahoma City that So that they. You know test positive for Kobe. Nineteen they got an autograph from Rudy. Gobert so there is the sort of that interaction right from a fan. That says hey I got it I did interact with Rudy Gobert so I mean that that part of it is out there right now. We have some Dave McMenamin sound on. Dave McMenamin was on sportscenter yesterday. Laura I'm sure can find it I will tell you which sound it is but He he was talking about the one that says full on the two. Lakers testing positive. Let's let's hear Dave McMenamin on sportscenter. Yesterday this was a high priority issue for the team after the nets came out with the news that four players on their roster including Kevin Durant tested positive for the virus. That was the last game the Lakers played just about nine days ago before the NBA season. Shut down For undetermined about a time players wet to the practice facility. Yesterday they never left their cars. There was a swab taken. A culture that went up the nostrils of the players. The whole thing lasted I'm told about tentative Fifteen seconds and they didn't know when they got the results Sometimes these things take two or three days but the results came in today. Dow Fourteen of the players were tested We're talking about seventeen man roster when you count the two way players For the team and still so not only do. We not necessarily know right now. The names of the Lakers Clair's but we don't know the players who have yet to be tested The Lakers will follow by having additional testing for members of the Sport Staff in coaching staff. Who I've been in close contact with infected so there you have it so I think that there's still some laker players are still need to get tested because not all of them. I guess showed up. Ramona mentioned that because they weren't around because the NBA allowed them to leave town and go back to their homes. Were if they felt the need to do that. Which is understandable to but I do think that the key is for all of them to get tested that has to be And I said it before like already real throughout NBA circles. But now we're talking about a team that we consider if the NBA does come back right. We're talking about a team that could be playing into the later stages of the NBA playoffs If we if the NBA decides to continue season so the Lakers will be in the forefront and so those players or this team will be under a microscope. So that's why I thought that. Hey the Brooklyn Nets. No offense to them but they're the Brooklyn Nets four guys test positive like okay. But it's different with the Lakers. Now right it's just like if it was the cowboys and the NFL the Yankees. I think the mets thing was was pretty big. Especially because it was Kevin Durant. You Know Kevin. Rent's not playing this year. You're not to me. That that was huge. Be Like Oh Kevin Durant. But he ain't playing right now. We're talking about the Lakers. And obviously everyone wants to know. Is it probably the biggest laker right? Who's a guy who does converse A ton with Guy Kevin durant right. They've been in the back of a vehicle shooting. You Know Youtube in whatever you know. What Lebron Kevin Durant so obviously that correlation is out there and I think that's where some of the speculation is because if that may be a guy who does test positive for the covert nineteen what does the NBA do. Well now you're talking about arguably the face of the NBA and talking about Lebron James. Here that's kind of what's being around. Not that he has it but what happens if that does if that is the case right and I don't know if he has it he was on instagram. Live yesterday with his family. And maybe you know people are trying to say that. That's a sign or not. I don't know if it is I. Don't get the sense that it is. I mean one would assume that maybe that he doesn't because of that but Bergman BEF- why don't want to say names because converse but this is what people are thinking I get it I get it one hundred percent I get it now. Bergman alerted me to Lebron being on I. G Live yesterday and he was on for a long time right. Yeah he was just sitting there. Here's playing cards with his family just answering questions. Talking about Miami. A little bit. It was it was pretty. It was fun. I mean this is what people are going to be doing now. Athletes in general. I mean they're going to be just on getting in front of your face as much as possible. I think it's great. Yeah well the NBA is doing something where they're going to have a player basically like doing like a live chat on Mba dot com every day like today. The first person is going to be Kevin Love And every day they're just gonNa have someone out there at a specific time to interact with the fans which I think is smart. I would want to do that if I were a player. I would volunteer to do it and I certainly would want that if I were the fans right. No I don't want that. I mean this is just another form of the NBA Just understanding the situation in a times. And if you know me talking with Kevin Love today if that's GonNa make my day just a little bit more More worthwhile right not having to worry your watch the the news television things like that. That's huge for the NBA. I think they may adopted in do more of it. I know the players winner interact. I'm not a Gamer. Maybe Greg Bergman maybe Utah George in your spare time but guys like you know the Devon Booker's and Shea guilty to the younger generation of the NBA. Those guys are having a ball plan online. So I think the odor. Nba Crowd. Now Yeah for sure for sure I coming up next. I want to get back to the rams and kind of the pressure. That's on them a little bit. There's some talk about Philip rivers. Not Guy Getting not having enough juice anymore. We'll get into that a little bit and I'm getting ripped on twitter for some movie takes that I've had some. Lay them on you here. Real Quick Ben Lines by that we will join us at ten forty because I want him to rate. My movie takes in a little bit. He'll stick around.

I get to the movie stuff because Ben's going to join us in a few minutes the The Rams how much pressure is there now. On Sean McVeigh less need in the coaching staff. Now this is separate right. Like less is separate from the coaching staff. But there's also some pressure on them together right because Sean is going to need to have success and less is going to have to be better in the margins per se right. Well I would say this. It's been three years in Sean. Mcvay era right in the they won the division two out of three years they have super bowl appearance. Nfc Conference Championship and if the rules Of the new. Cba that was signed last weekend. If they were in place for the twenty nineteen season the rams would have made the playoffs and would have been traveling to Green Bay in the wildcard round. So you look at what they've done three seasons and you say okay. Could there be better could have been better Possibly but I I would take that in a heartbeat now. This year they have hit the reset button. They've hired a new offensive coordinator. Kevin O'CONNELL Brennan Staley. Who's their new defensive coordinator? This is a full on reset Right in front of our eyes but they feel that they have the masterpiece. Which is the quarterback. Some still question about that. But but now they're going to get a multiple running backs. I don't know how they feel about Daryl Henderson. Because he didn't play much last year but like you mentioned. I don't know if there's a ton of pressure because they did sign extensions right remember that before last season they signed extensions. And know what you do when you get that extension you feel better about yourself you can. You can take a little more risk. They weren't going into a make it or break it season. So I'll get this year is that how does the reset look? How did they get their books? Back in order and in how to be built now. They've really have to go out and draft well in order to build this team backup. So is there is. There's always going to be pressure on general managers and head coaches. But I think that what the rams they had to do. Addition by subtraction. Now this season we'll see where that puts them at. Yeah for sure. I think that there's there's going to be some of those situations where you're just. GonNa have to figure it out But Yeah I. It's going to be a test of their abilities as as someone who constructs a roster even Sean. It's GonNa test abilities as a coach. Yeah and I think that's why he went and got some help. I think that's why he hired a new offense coordinator because they didn't actually have one last year. Remember he had lost two guys and in that were with him. Right Matt Leflore. Who takes the head job in Green Bay? And then you know. Obviously we know about Zack. Taylor who's the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals? So the guys who had helped him in his previous two seasons were now gone in this season number three thought he took on too much as a head coach and I think this is part of the reset is will try to divvy up some the responsibilities and just be a head coach. Sean McVeigh Right. It'd be a head coach when you do that. That that that that that to me is where you can really get an have more. I think of a re a better relationship but some of the players I think last year. That's what Kinda got distance in there was that he was trying to handle too many roles all by himself. I think now just having the head. Coaching role really can help him. Really figure out a football team. Yes sure I do think that sometimes you take on maybe too much more more than you think you can chew right like that that that plays a huge role in some of this stuff but I think that ultimately I trust him a guy who can overcome some of this stuff. No I agree. I I trust that. This is the first time in his coaching career right This is year. Four under Sean mcvay but like I said before if you look at his resume remember he does have a coach of the year Attached to that as will this is the first year we're going to see. How does he handle adversity right? This is the first time if things have come easy to Sean right and but to the thing about it is for me. I've seen him so far. Look at where he's had mistake set and then try to not only fix them. Buddy fixed them in a way to grab guys who can help him fix it right. It's not I'm doing it by myself. He went out this off season and grabbed guys to go out and fix things. And that's part of a head coach. Who's learning as he still gets a gets more years under his belt as the head coach. Yeah no doubt for sure. I think that when you when you look at at Sean I I believe that you're you're in one of these situations that you're again. I like the NBA. I can give you the example. A lot of these coaches they you can you people think more of them when they do more with less you she would've saying he's GonNa have to do more with less right. That's why everybody was like if the NBA ended today. A lot of people thought nick nurse would be the NBA coach of the year. Right of what he was doing with less in Toronto With no Kawhi Leonard you know no Danny Green. And they're still a team that's five and four possibly the tops on the Eastern Conference so I understand that point particular but I think what happens in the. Nfl is that the rams actually had players. So I think we may give Sean mcvay in year four right. This is fourth years the head coach if he's able to have a successful season make the playoffs minus the guys. We know that list that have left in free agency or been released or have been traded. I think we may appreciate more what he does. And your four than what he's accomplished in his first three years and that even being a super bowl appearance yeah for sure. I think that that's absolutely possible. So here's the movies thing that I'm getting ripped on so lebatardshow and his crew were doing a movie thing today because they said there's not five good basketball movies. Okay and I said that's not true like my top five or white men can't jump. He got game okay basketball now. This is the one I got a lot of grief over. Forget Paris and glory road now. People said that I should have had was above the rim with Hakkinen or coach. That's a good one. I'm sorry forget. Paris is one of my top favorite movies of all time. Because I love Rahm Romantic comedies and I love basketball movies so you get both so. That's gotta be my top five above the rim would probably be six. Maybe I could squeeze Glory Road But glory Roadman. That's a that's a tear jerker you know what I'm saying like that's a good movie and by the way you could keep hoosiers. That movies thinks doniger movie though a Greg. I'm which you meant. I was just about to say blue chips mayor with Neon Bodo Kilo meal and not. That was that was good. That was probably one of the best ones I the thing about it for me. Was I go back to? He got game and I mean first of all the dinsdale flick but then you throw a spike Lee but you throw in so many great players that were in that movie right and so many young young actors in there. I don't know why Allen and get more love for his acting in their baby he was he he still called. Jesus subtler yeah I think so. Yeah I I like some of those Let's see what else space jam based me. That's fine that's what about Dr. Are we doing documentaries? Docu Hoop Dreams Hoop Dreams. Documentary feature film removing feature film feature film and. I'm getting a great movie. The sixth man or now you're going with the one that had a whoopie Goldberg and it was Eddie. That's terrible terrible. Terrible Laura Laura said coach Carter. Yeah coach Carter is okay.

Because he's got to go. He's doing some stuff he's busy working but he's taking time out of his busy schedule to join us. Are you good? I know we spoke the other day. The audience no. You're good. I'm good man I'm good. Thanks for having me on the show and I'm staying home man. That's the most important thing that we can do. So just trying to lay low and get through this time man. That's great listening to you. Feel you feel yes. Thank you for coming on I show real quick with the NBA. I WANNA get a couple of quick. Nba questions with you. And then I want you to rate My my movie list. Because I'm getting slandered. All over the Internet right now But let's start with the NBA with what's going on right now. There is a sense that they're doing everything to try everything they're trying to do. They're trying everything. They can to not cancel the season. Better said how do you feel about that? Like Adam told Rachel the other day when she asked like what happens. If you have to cancel the season he says I'm not there yet. How do you feel about the way Adams kind of handled all this George? It's been so comforting as an American citizen and Hooper in a city like Los Angeles which I think is the basketball destination a world right now to have the NBA. Adam and Adam silver leading this and being out in front of this. I feel like looking back Nine days or so when they shut down the the jazz and Sunder game that was sort of the Domino. That really got the country to pay attention. That oh this is for real. And as Adam said with Rachel he said we lead in in shutting it down and we're GONNA lead and opening it up you're GONNA lead and coming back so I turned to the NBA and the leaders of that of that community and the WNBA as well. We had the very difficult task of having to get a lot of their players home safely from around the world because a lot of the WNBA players play internationally throughout the year. So I look to the NBA. The beacon of hope in light and I love looking on their social media and seeing different players why there have been affected directly by the virus. Like Marcus smart or really. Go bear or Donovan or guys who were talking about mental health or just you know staying up and keeping our spirits up by Kevin love checking in. I love following the NBA on social as as a sort of a barometer for how we're doing on this so a loss for for how they've handled this ams right. He can't think about that now. George if there's a if there's a two thousand nine hundred ninety two thousand twenty NBA champion. I'll be shocked so yeah I mean look there could be. That could very well be the case. I will say this. I do think that this. If they do get to play this season it could be a little bit of a blessing in disguise in this sense that I've always said they should change the schedule and start on Christmas. Anyway this may make them kind of rethink that. Yeah I mean the. Nfl is such a dominant force in television and media rights and advertising that the NBA numbers. Even when there's excitement around the launch of the season really take a hit from by the middle of October till like you said around Christmas time or even through the the the the playoffs and Super Bowl so is there a new schedule on the horizon. Possibly for the NBA absolutely how that impacts AAU college recruiting summertime stuff. We'll see But if they're able to somehow squeeze out a C at playoffs in shorten playoffs or something to crown a winner for this law season and then use that as a way to springboard into the new calendar. Then then that's something. I think all NBA fans will sign up for 'cause they'll let us know where collectively back towards normal on some level. I let's get to the movies year now. Kurkin and Greg mostly feeling my lists here okay. I've got some lists I've got I'm feeling Kurkin Greg shouting out blue chips because the called the SAS. The basketball one. I put out there because laboratory was saying on twitter that he doesn't believe that America has made five good basketball movies. And and I'm like I listed. White men can't jump. He got game love and basketball. Forget Paris and Glory Road Now. Look ABOVE. The Rim definitely could be their coach. Carter could be there. I'm not look as a kid. I liked the movie. The Nick Nolte movie. I don't really love it as an adult. I've never really watched it as an adult but the one I'm getting the most grief forest forget Paris and I'm like look my favorite genre of movies are Rom coms and then I love basketball more than anything else. I gotTa have it on my list and it's so obvious when watching that movie of what a basketball fan billy crystal is often gets recognised as a baseball fan of course from doing sixty one and his love of the Yankees. But he clipper diehard and his love of who comes out in that movie. It's a terrific film. I'm glad at Major Rom com list and I can totally understand it from a basketball point of view. Huge part of the game and to humanize one of them. And that's the worry is really well done. I like forget Paris. I wouldn't put on my top five but I understand why it could be on yours. Look through he told Kareem he couldn't occur. You told them couldn't throw him out because it was his farewell game and he said well let me be the first bid you farewell great line great cameos. You also made another one my giant with George Murison. You know that that people forget about that but look but but lever starting crew is right. There are so many average if not terrible basketball movies out there from Mike and the six men to even as a Knicks Fan Eddie has Franklin jello riding horse. It's ridiculous. I loved Sunset Park when I was a kid but I would run that Roman. I watched semi pro two nights ago. It's not funny except for the poker scene when Tim. Meadows get shot Just right I have a cameo in sitting courtside at the All Star game. That movies terrible. I mean there are a lot of bad basketball movie. Celtic Pride WanNa appetizers I and is the bad watch. But it's a silly premise. And a funny movie but Yeah Utah Jazz in Boston Celtics in the NBA. Finals not really believable. Yeah I mean th th there haven't been many feature great documentary feature films but so many documentaries yeah dreams and through the fire to the other Dream Team about the list of Wanian team that won the bronze and ninety two like. There's a lot of Docs. You can go down the rabbit hole this weekend on hoops. Now all right. Here's my rom com list now. I don't think anyone disagrees with my number one. I feel like this is the king right like it's the Lebron James of Rom coms when Harry met. Sally is number one right. Is there an argument there? No there's definitely there's there it's definitely consensus number one and it subscribes to a theory that. I truly believe in and I like to see that I'd say nine out of ten in the films on your list. Subscribe to the theory is that it's a romantic comedy both partners to be included. Austin time more often the man can be an accessory. Kinda cast off and not a fleshed out character. I Harry is a real person. So Sally it's about to real people. And that's something that a Lotta Rom coms forget. When you're when you're dealing with the sort of the reese witherspoon and the Julia Roberts Genre. The man is kind of an afterthought accessory so right yuan joy so number two. We've already discussed forget Paris. It's my number two ROM. Com number. Three is is is a favorite of mine. I don't know how many people actually love this movie high fidelity first of all. It's billy crystal and Cusak right like they're near the top of the Mount Rushmore of Rom Com actors right so high fidelity first of all the characters are amazing Jack Black and the eccentric nature of some of the characters and just the the ironic nature of some of those characters. The whole top five list. I think the whole movie is just brilliant. Young he's a great film. You just mentioned that's also good Rom coms top five top five with Chris. Rock Dawson set in the world of music and people sharing their lists and stop so yeah fidelity you get a passing me on our. That's okay so I got grief because you've got you've got mail but I didn't have sleepless in Seattle. Sleepless in Seattle is okay. I feel like you've got mail. It just brings us into the modern world right. Email bookstore mega store little shop like I just loved the dynamic. The second time around between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks more than I liked it. The first time and you can go back and watch sleepless in Seattle. It's the comedy feud seemed a few and far between and it's a little schmaltzy as sappy. Yeah very savvy. Deanship held a nice job. And you've got mail And is supporting a friend And you're right. It's like does take you into the modern age and and the fact that you know bookstores are going under. And it's just yeah. It's a great movie a moment in time for short ten things. I hate about you. I Love Julia Stiles I love. I mean he's ledger. He rest in peace. It's just to me. It's one of those. I like to call the genre team puke but I think it's the best team puke movie I've ever seen and you got. I think Andrew Keaton's in there and he's got his own religion on the Westside of Los Angeles so love yes. There's that forty year old virgin is fantastic. Maybe one of the funniest movies I've ever seen not a traditional rump comp and I threw it in unless I'm so glad you did because it is a romantic comedy. Steve Carell deserved awards. Attention that year you go back and watch that performance. It's nothing short of brilliant and I love Steve Corral he's been in a couple of other good rom coms of over the years. Dan In real life is one. Juliette Binoche Josh. And he's had a couple of moments in genre but I I love for virgin one of my favorite movies ever lend US wrong cops. Yeah so then. I got broadcast news for obvious reasons because it just as a kid. I've always wanted to be in this business and when I saw the movie even as a kid I was interested in it and our brooks is fantastic. I think a real person Albert Brooks. He's a real about to. It's not just the man of the CASTOFF. Yeah great choice right so I got that one in there. What else do I've got. Oh serendipity a little sappy but I love me some piven and I mentioned cusak already and I just feel like the whole silliness of them going around the entire Globe and then eventually the city of New York was just funny me and then of course I forget the characters name right now. He used to be. He wasn't on Saturday night live. He was on that other Improv. Show with the guy with the glasses. God what does TV yes or mad. Tv Yes I forget his name but anyway. That guy was awesome. My best friends wedding. You don't love it. I heard that and then I had to include my boyfriend prince. She saw that at the end is my number ten. Fpj's had a great run in Rom Com. You Reckon you've referred to Do Gene Levy as the guy from mad. Tv Guy from a mighty wind and spinal tap and so many great comedies with Christopher. Get OVER THE YEARS. Best in show A couple of off the board there. George you have a solid list. And I don't know why the Internet if the Internet is ripping you apart over your romantic comedy list than the quarantine is not going well in recent years crazy stupid. Love be better than the gap. Another Steve Carell movie knocked up is a great ROM com. Not good one. Yeah I saw that said Logan was was high. The other day live tweeting. He's doing that for cats to which I don't know my dad saw cats might have been on that set broken funky as well and Kinda liked it Something about Mary Love actually you know groundhog day. Five hundred days of summers a lot in the genre my number one though George and I played it Friday night at my wedding we did an outdoor screening with a Taco truck Any Hall Woody Allen. Thanks to me. That is the quintessential romantic comedy. Fred just tweeted me. Says the good thing. I'm not a movie critic. You can't have a top basketball movie. Lists without hoosiers. I think hoosiers the most overrated film. I've ever seen in my entire life and I love Gene Hackman. That is not. It's not believable. Even to me means that something really great on Lebatardshow this morning because he said the greatest impact hoosiers has on basketball is that owners of NBA teams. Think that their head coach should be up on the sideline screaming and yelling because of that movie. So head coaches have been fired in basketball because they're not animated enough with a piece of paper and screaming and getting speaking in cliches. That movie is is completely irrelevant to the game now and coated in some racial stuff. Go so get Susan Span. To be honest me neither could keep it bent. We've kept you long enough. Thank you brother for hanging out today and having some fun with US three. Keep doing your thing. We love you. The city needs you man. It's great to have Yang. I brother take care. Spe- safe areas. Ben Lyon. See I've got a real movie critic giving Me Love. The hell with all you on the Internet right. I was good man. I mean you got a good little list going. You know mind be a little bit different but I was kind of going through it as you guys were going so I was thinking among is coming to America all no I don't. Let's tackle that on the other side. Plus let's get back to what happened with Tom Brady. And what's going on there Philip rivers? There's talk that already. There's some questions about him in Indianapolis.

They create really incredible experiences for people if you're someone who wants to feel like you own a piece and our apiece of the industry. It's a great way to do it. They do meet ups all over the country. They have a really cool community going online. I cannot recommend them enough. Go to legion dot com. For more information Harvard buddy, Kevin Brownlow, a household name. If your household habits to include serious film, buffs and silent movie aficionados I was in my teens when his book the parades gone by came out and received widespread acclaim was by any measure a game changer for me, and countless other readers since then Kevin has written other essential books, produced unforgettable, documentaries and restored countless classic films. That's why the academy Motion Picture Arts and sciences presented him with an. Oscar in two thousand eleven unprecedented, but well-deserved recognition for film scholar Jesse and I were on to spend some time with him during a recent trip to Los Angeles from his native England. On Leonard Maltin, and I'm Jesse Maltin. You're listening to Maltin on movies, and our guest today is the esteemed, and I can now say Oscar winning film historian, and filmmaker and author Kevin Brownlow who was visiting Hollywood. And we're very happy to have him here. Welcome kevin. Thank you very much. It's it's a treat to have you here. You've been here for the classic film festival this past weekend as we're recording this and did you have a good time. Very good. Indeed. Yeah. What did you see that? You didn't expect to that that the pleased you that's fascinating Christian trying to click back and hold a sick. Because we had to miss a lotta pictures, which is there are a lot of a lot of choices being honored as part of it. You were getting me Robert Osborne award, which is this is the second year. They're doing that. And being honored means you. No free time is basically how that goes. Yes. I didn't expect to when Harry met Sally to be as good as it was his yes. Brilliant. They're opening night film. And it's very good. Very good. Isn't it and seeing the three of them on the red carpet? They Meg Ryan. And Billy crystal and Reiner were there, and it was just really fun to see. So we'll written. It's so we'll directed by role. Ryan and beautifully photographed. It's a perfect Hollywood picture and really can't be talked. No, it's very good. And and it and it does hold up as thirty years off. Of course, you know. TCI them does and tries to. Honor Hollywood's golden age, but as the years pass, and there's more theaters are considered you were in fewer people alive to represent Hollywood's golden age their window. That's moved later in later. So Harry met Sally when Harry met Sally is only thirty years old. But thirty years is thirty years. That's passage of time. The funny thing is I mean, I'm obsessed by the Hollywood golden age that I regard is twinned teens. But then people say do you go to talking? Sometimes I make them. I like to tell people that I didn't know that films were in color until I was about twelve no clue that color existed for quite a while. Now, the thing is before I let you to get what we call inside baseball. I just want the basics for anyone who doesn't know your backstory where are you from? And what got you into doing what you do because your books I asked my dad when he got your first book, and it's when it was printed fifty years ago, which is crucial for the parades gone by and if you folks listening don't own a copy or haven't read a copy from your local library. Let's say or go get it go do it. You ought to go to pursue one of those avenues all. It will open a window will open a window in the most fascinating and vivid way to the era of silent film. And that's that book did when it came out in nineteen sixty nine, but it's all because I'm too young to have experienced the silent era. But I did I was born in Sussex in England and went to the. Awful education of boarding school. I regard the boarding school. And I went to his Colditz. Believe it on the some boys escaped and had to be rounded up by tradesmen's vans. Back and caned in the topmost coupler of the school building in Kroger Sussex and bought that head Mazda. Did something sensational every third Sunday in the winter knowing that he had tempt to spec from parents visits he showed films, and these were all nine point five, which was the home movie gauge for Europe at that time. And so we saw Chaplin Mishal Harold, Lloyd. We saw snub Pollard, even dramatic pictures. Mute version of the nineteen thirty three all of twist with Dickie more. I became I became a sh. Temporary celebrity in that film because Henry Stevenson played Mr. Brownlow and that the true spin. Benefit benevolent old gentlemen, which I know myself, so eight wasn't immediately the films that caught my obsession. It was the fact that you could show films in your home. I thought you could only see them in concrete bunkers in the high street marked Odeon ABC. And so I beg my parents for a project to say what kind of project say for my tenth birthday. I go to film strip project and a film strip called black beauty, which showed a wholesome. And then the loss of text and the whole also text whole scalloping all standing. Say they made up for it. When I was living. I go to Pat the scope ace it had a handle on the side and two films one Disney. Mickey Mouse, black and white and the neighbor of you spit hit nineteen thirty five. So that wasn't enough. And I went into the streets of London to track down what I knew would be there in that little piles of films fitted my projector, but had been abandoned because television was coming in the early fifties. And the first time I struck it. Rich was in Chappel fake street famous Sherlock Holmes, and it was a pile of films which turned out to have star the following celebrities of the silent era. Douglas, Fairbanks senior Basie love and William. Hot. You could hardly do better. Could you on what? And what gays are we talking also nine point five nine online point five. Now that gates was never really introduced here in the United States did have film aches and no Pathak's. I'm sorry. Phil makes was a film festival. Pathak's was the American nine point five, and they had pictures with Douglas MacLean, for instance, which we never had in Europe, Johnny Hines just as well. We didn't have in your. So it would be interesting to see if there any nine five collectors left. I don't know I I've acquired some just for the novelty of having them, but the more popular medium here. Besides sixteen millimeter was eight millimeter. Oh, yes. I couldn't eight minutes. Well, that was the that was the gateway drug eight millimeter. What what excited me was the quality the pictorial quality of nine five, which has the picture size of sixteen millimeter. But the Spurs hotels are in the middle. That's dangerous. If you have an accident because the clo- TEZ picture down the middle. But if you've careful you got the most beautiful could get them as beautiful results, and the first film. I shaved my parents was cold the first man, which was an incorrect title. I knew that. Because what my mother shrieked as soon as came on. Douglas, Fairbanks, and even I'd heard of Douglas Fairbanks, and I got very excited about having a Fairbanks film, and I wanted to know more about it. So I went to the library. I expect to find book which fellow pinned to picture from film and had a paragraph describing which is ridiculous because it was only one film book in the entire library. I took it down it fell open. This a picture of my film? There was a description, but iris Barry about how this was called American, aristocracy and CS First, great success at finance triangle. And that film had the most extraordinary effect on my career because I discovered the British Film Institute, I could find the cost and director, and I showed showed shade. And I then joined as an office boy at documentary company, and they kept saying if you need an actor Cole, the Al Pokka agency and having a one track mind, I'll polka Albert s Palko was the villain in my film, which was set during the Mexican revolution. And he was a gum runner. So I thought well I'll ring now Pokka and to my delight he had an American accent. I said Mr. pocket does the name Douglas, Fairbanks mean anything to you. He said Jesus Christ. I directed him. I said what did you direct the black obliged? Yes. Sculler swashbuckling. Unbelievable. So he I tell you your how old by this time. I was seventeen. By the time. I I was an office Moy, and he said bring it over. So I took the projector of his office in Mayfair and ran it on his wall, which incidentally was lined with graphs of the black pirate beautiful beautiful photographs and he was so tickled by what he sold that. He got his wife in Iran it again and the wife arranged an evening at which his top clients would be invited. A he was an agent by now he was an accusation t- came over lost all his money in the crash came to the to England and worked FOX England and made quota quickies the which was a bit of a comedown after the black pirate say setup agents agency and discovered we're should act borough. Anyway, among the people he was invited for this evening was Clive brook hardy Kruger Trevor Howard, and I just extraordinarily and it became a regular feature. I would have a silent film evening at our parkas, and we'd have all sorts of fascinating American, visiting filmmakers who were very impressed with the silence. I showed Robert wise. I remember people like that who are working over there. So it had an enormous affect an owl would ring me up and say Kevin Zao king Vidor, Hyde Park hotel, tell him I sent you. So I hope Lova with a huge portable on hardly portable tape recorder. The size of this table and king veto would suddenly be there in the lobby talking about one of the tightness of. Silent film and beyond several decades on one of the great directors who ever lived, absolutely. And and you got to meet him. And he told me something about direction which really stood Mike excitement to become a director. He said I didn't say very much to John Gilbert on the big parade. I just thought it and to my amazement Gilbert reacted. It was like a love affair. Oh, what a what a thing to say. It's added to the magic of picture making not that. I thought I'd have become a director. Because that time I was told the average age directors was fifty seven and I was now eighteen on. I thought I couldn't wait. So I started to knapik on sixteen millimeter, which took it was about will to in it too long to make the world will to fight. So we live a look at. That became your your first feature it happened here. But now I haven't finished landed on little interjection. Yes. Here comes a film cold. Little mother. I thought oh, this is going to be really soppy. People told me the silent films were very soppy badly made badly graft in Barra Singley badly acted and I was finding all the time the complete opposite beautifully fair to grow brilliantly act anyway, so this one stop by see love and was cracking drama about. It's funny how Mexico figures in always pictures on the Mexican border a father with six children holes is against an attack by Mexican bandits. And they see love when my father was crazy Bessie love and Broadway. Melody he kept talking about that. So it was a sound film. Didn't interest me. I was walking home. And I passed the embassy theatre Swiss cottage, and they just put up new playbills, and among the also rans the bottom was Bessie love. And I thought how extraordinary Multan actress would steal his name is famous name from old Hollywood, I told my father of I've seen these said, we'll have you thought it might be the this. Well, I said good God, though, the embassy this has nothing to Broadway. You know in Hollywood, he said le- leave a letter. So I did I rotary note. And I got one in return. And it said, yes, I'm the the Bessie love from Broadway. Melody, and your film was made by Sydney, Chester Franklin in one thousand nine hundred sixteen for Mr. Griffiths company. And I'd like to see it could I bring my daughter. Well, we lived in a flat, which costs two pounds a week Grint. So it indicates how what a stage it was in off to the wall bits of the ceiling kept falling down. And we really wasn't a place for a Hollywood star. But we did our best to clean it up. And my ally was sh- wintom because it was winter. My mother put up a heavy curtain on the dole to keep the drafts out which we thought would they appealing to see and she turned up on time. Follow the both are upstairs, and we opened the dole and the pelmet fell on top of both her and tote. And I was died of shame. But then I heard a giggle underneath Bessie. Love photographs hysterical. So we'd made a friend in the most unexpected way. And I knew it till the end of life often gave shows in her because she was a stage actress, although she didn't Sunday Bloody Sunday. Is a door and so on, but she was primarily a stage actress, and I'm we ran these nine five films on the wall of the. Dressing room in the face as she was in how tell us again, we're by this time now where you continued to find an acquire these prints. Well, nineteen fifty eight went to Paris. I was taken to Paris as a treat, and I discovered the fleamarket men in the flea market. There was a stole run by two ladies, and they had all these wonderful nine point five films in metal containers which finally enough or called cassettes. So this was the twenties cassette revolution. And I saw one coal Napoleon, and I had already foreshadow for shadow foreshadow already. A quad two reels on the the English version, and I felt this must be the French version. So I bought they were held together by string very crude. But I bought them and tend to be whole real of the relationship of Napoleon Ajay's Athene, which is fascinating beautifully done. How much would you pay for for these? Yeah. I was just thinking what did I pay for them is suppose, the quivalent to fifty cents something like that? Plo little tiny real. It wasn't an expensive Hobie that was an advantage because had managed by that first group on my weekly pocket. Monday of ten shillings. But then it got incredibly expensive the is. But then on American collector came to England carrying projector. Can you believe it? He must've thought we were very. Behind the times, come from the new world to show, you this magical device will as a matter of fact, you're right. That's sort of thing he said and he had with him, which he was willing to sell to me for two pounds real a coat a scoop print of the great western epic the covered wagon made in nineteen Twenty-three three by James Cruze photograph by Cal Brown taken from the camera negative by the Kodak corporation because they wanted people to rent their pictures, therefore they decided to make them look as good as they possibly could. And I found myself watching silent films as they looked originally. I was astounded. I knew they were good. But. But. And the covered wagon was simply magnificent. And that started me collecting on sixteen millimeter, and it grows. Ooh, there's another size and some of those some of those KOTA scopes were even tinted. Oh, this was tinted. Yes, sunshine, they call that tint, we was some shine all the way through even the night seat was saving money boroughs. The show at homes, which was the Universal Studios version of coda scoop were again from the camera negative, but individual shots were tinted if necessary and the first one of those I got was from library in the Coventry, and I was almost going to skip it because it was cold the goose woman, I thought who would want to film about him goose spoon. But then I they amazingly included the cost which is very unusual. Normally, the only actor you ever gotten list from libraries was chaplain. So here I had Jack Pickford. Constance Bennett, Louise, dresser Gustaf on scientists. So I thought what? So I bought it. And that changed my life again because I as a filmmaker at been desperately trying to move away from the studio lit look in the fifties Hollywood films. Had to be flooded it in order to be shown at drive ins, and it was so unrealistic. I couldn't bear it compared to the silence, which were impure Chablis lit and very realistic in many cases and this one reproduce daylight interior perfectly. Something that I didn't think was possible. Also, it had the look of of oil lamp in the shack that the goose woman who was a opera star on her. Who was a drunken and lived in this shack with a bunch of geese around. Like, you do for the quality was absolutely mesmerizing and the performance by Louise dresser. So impressed me I wrote to Louis dresser. And I got months and how much she had my Clarence Brown who directed it. And this of course, I thought well, I suppose if one was working on a dissertation about a literature, great figures of literature in America, you could go and meet some of them. And I thought why not and without park telling me who is in town and finding a whole loss of silent films stars like Bessie love had moved to England and stayed there during the blitz in. I hope they must've fold England a marvelous placed to stay while they were being bombed every night. Absolutely amazing, but baby Daniels. Aben Lund exactly that they live there throughout the blitz and BB Daniels was the first to entertain the troops in Normandy after d day. Maybe Daniels who had been Harold Lloyd's leading lady in the teens in the teams of the twentieth century. Yeah. Became a big star paramount and ended up in Rio Rita, and Ben Lyon was Mina stop that he was a big hit in Hell's Angel Howard Hughes. Great epoch and they were radio a very popular radio series. And they were always making jokes about Hollywood and Hells Angels and rear eater. See part of part of what I'm always fascinated by. And where you and my dad are similar is the ability to reach out the way that you did when he told me that when my dad says, yeah, I used to use the New York phone book, and you just reach out to somebody that that's part of what makes this story. So incredible. Is that you could get to them will the fact that you say. In nineteen sixty eight I was supposed to make a film in Prague with my partner film, making partner, Andrew mullahs. And I we would do to start in a couple of weeks. And I felt let's take a break have a holiday my wife, and I went on holiday to Ireland when I came to Shannon airport. The newspapers all had pictures of Russian tanks in Prague. But I just been with Andrew been making a film about occupation. I said let's go and find out what it's like at first hand. And meanwhile, I'll go to the Russia the press check archive and see what they got. And what they got was the curator's favourite American silent film, and it was paramount cold it stop love, which was the. The Adum title. It was a drama documentary and flashy style about the mountain people of North Carolina. So guess what? The title was in in check. But translated the title was in the glens of California. And I couldn't believe this is a long lost film. I got extremely excited wrote an article about it for a little film magazine in England. I rather pompously entitled how could we forget a film like this? And I was back in America. I got a call from the museum of Malmo. The question was simple. It's called Brown still alive. And I said if he had if he was I know about it. So there I thank God another phone call from a collector called George Mitchell. Nothing to do with the camera inventor, George j Mitchell was an intelligence officer in the United States army. They'd run him to he said, Kevin. I don't have time to devote to this. But I did do one thing. I took the telephone looked him up. And he's there. Oh my God. He gave me a gift so off I went to the address and they. The landlord said, oh, you've just misdemeanors moved with his wife to north Hollywood Glamour's. So great. It's not in the phone yet. He doesn't have a forwarding address. I'm stuck for six weeks. Hunted down Cal Brown. I was being driven around. Hollywood Ivan literally see old man on the sidewalk. I'd get out. My say we you in motion pictures that invariably they'd say no is on the stock market now. Nineteen twenty nine. So we went to extremes involved David Shepherd. I remember and he went down to the motor. License department, even that was the extremes winter. And I remember I was interviewing a great cameraman Jones sites with Rex Ingram. And I was the American Film Institute. I kept getting interrupted people Balji into the room in the middle of a he was a bit shaky very old and very nice. But could be thrown by what was then the telephone starts ringing again again, and again, please and mend interview was over. I say I'm so sorry. But what what was it? He said, oh, are you interested in call Brown? David emphasis run through with his address. So that night, my wife, and I drove your little folks volume rented to north Hollywood and found the house. And luckily, there was a light in the window. So knocked on the door. Nobody sit in I kick the Bill Agnew toss. I have stopped you for months, sir. Let me in. As long as leaving. And I looked through the window. And I saw the most extraordinary site. I saw a motion picture credits of a motion picture present being projected backwards. No. What do you call it up the opposite way round? Yeah. And so I realized somebody must be watching television, and it's reflected in the picture on the wall, and there was a little bell. So I took a little bell thing. And we're actively rang it rang in Ventura shuffle shuffle shuffle door open. Very oh lady. Way on my said dismissed Akal Brown available. How you find us? And she went to see if he'd see me, and it was exactly as though he'd been waiting months for me to arrive, and he's just went straight into the story of joining killer McCullough at the point where Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard. Meet where the Kenema color studio was changing over to the DWI Griffith studio and Carl Brown as a boy of seventeen I think as I was was hired by Kim McCullough, and they were going to go bust due to an English all suit, and he was going to be the cameraman to the greatest cameraman ever been a bit, sir. The greatest director ever DWI Griffith. So it worked out then. Well, that's what that's incredible. And you and you brought Carl Brown into the limelight as it were by not only interviewing him. But by. Encouraging him to write his own book. His own story. His own incredible story. Adventures with DWI Griffith. Yeah. Didn't file a restraining order a win all the way around. And he he didn't stop the he wrote the paramount adventure, which was about the making the covered wagon. But there was a flow the publisher who put out ventures d w Griffith cut out the middleman. Now, I was the editor of the first one didn't need any aging, really. But it was much too long. And there was sixty thousand words about Kenema color, priceless. Historical stuff, but the public could do without its and could start when he joins Griffith. Now that was easy, but the publisher insisted on me being not involved and the Browns sends the chapters into them, and they didn't know what was important historically. What wasn't that? They go thing about the are buckle chapter. They were convinced by somebody who read it some historian in the east coast that it was incorrect, and it turned out. Yes. Call Brown was actually away shooting a film when they're buckled event happened, and although he'd worked with him on several pictures, he didn't have he he was he didn't do any research. He used his own memory, but his memory was flawed. And so they refuse to publish the paramount adventure, and it still unpublished and Brown even did one on monogram where he ended up. Working. So it's it's a loss. But he was a missed remarkable man, and you can see him in the Hollywood series if they ever allow that to be shown that we were talking about better here. I. What inspired you to come to Hollywood for the first time, and you know, ahead of your trip beforehand who you might get to see. Will add started finding for instance, Percy moment, great silent actor and the. I did articles for amateur cine world amateur moviemaker on these survivors of the silent era in England. So, but it wasn't that era that got make to America. It was unfortunately, I have to admit it was a girl. Any different come on. This is like a slacker Hollywood film. I've found a an American actress coal Sloane Shelton and full madly. And when TWA announced if you went to America for three weeks, you could travel for one hundred seven pounds return, then I put all savings. I've got into going over. And luckily, she was tied up in rehearsals. A lot of time kidding me spare time to go. I looked again in the phone book crew who's around Greenwich Village, where she lived, and I found James Morrison who'd been an actor leading actor in vita graph at in the very primitive period and again the door. I was delighted to sit down and talk and showed me a still of how vita graph had insisted on using something called the ten foot line. And the ten foot line was. Placed as white tape across the studio floor and use the actor must not go over it or he goes out of focus, and I e he even had one with a ten foot line running through a battle scene. And he was charming and in full of information. And I thought this is heaven, you know, what more could you also? Said not had the next trip. I determined to get the Hollywood and Americans have a habit when they get it's tourists in London. And they meet someone they like it's next time you marry gotta to stay with us and somebody deals somebody did that for me, and he lived in the house of a famous silent film direct to. So when I go to New York, I rang him up an Opus Dei didn't expect. His offer to be taken up and he said. My mother-in-law stay. So I couldn't go. The Botts collectible David Bradley who lived in the hills, the top of north crescent heights boulevard. He's saved my bacon. He wasn't actually this is roommate Tom Webster who had instructions drive me around. I mean, that's perfect doesn't it? And I could look at his collection, which was gigantic probably the largest private collection of silent and early sound films anywhere. So again, you lucked out. So there I'm sitting by telephone looking over beautifully lit, boss Angeles thinking, I could see anybody. What about Buster Keaton and Bradley gave me the name of his agent the agent game in the name of Keaton's agent. And the Keaton's agents said don't tell him I told you, and he voice the how. And he handed it to his wife to organize. And we drove down to Woodland Hills was ways how ranch was the C called it. And the door was opened an enormous great what sort of dog was Saint Bernard. Save an Elmo is called. I couldn't get in. And they couldn't get out and. Mrs Keaton said oh been trying to get hold of you key in Busta had a job, and he was trying to get in touch to put it on another day. That'll thank God. I didn't leave my phone number. And so I came in and and there was gunfire. The whole room was shaking with gunfire. Keaton watching a western in a lower part of the room. There was a a huge picture of our buckle. The only time I ever saw this on the walls of anybody and. I thought knowing what happened to him that he would be old man sitting in the corner muttering about his bad luck. And I turn the volume on my tape recorder, flat out thinking, huge going to talk like this and steady. Tom the needle. Yes. Yes. He couldn't be more a Commodore in talking about his how he did it and it was magic exit magic. And then he had little heed Bill to a bar tiny bar with a swing swing tolls for just a tank for the beer, but there was made to look like the entrance to a bar. And I wish I'd seen these train which ran round the raunch. And of course, every time you saw someone they said go to see dot don't, of course. Yeah. Yeah. To what she say. I will go wherever you you. Tell me where hit it and also Jason Allahu brook in the east who worked who represented many of these people like Priscilla dean, and so on gave me a lot of addresses to to stop me off. But it was got. It was exciting. Twenty eight I interviewed in two three weeks, the three eggs I had in Hollywood turn to data. And regional Dinnie. Now original Denny was a damn good comedian completely forgotten though. Maybe you remember him as a Shakespearean actor with John Barrymore in Romeo, and Juliet and other things he was. A big comedian with universal often with Laura the plant. Do you know he was the inventor of the drone? He had a multiple shop very popular hobby show how to shop. Yes. Hollywood yet. And that's how a lot of older people who grew up here that I've met. No, the name not from his film career from the from that hobby shop I saw a chain of restaurants called on. I thought that. If only he's doing really well from selfish. He didn't he didn't want to see the films because he was a shame to them. Because of what the way the television treated silent films. When television started and David Bradley had a beautiful print of Skinner's dress suit, which is delicious picture directed by William Seitis, starring co-starring laurel plant, and he took the risk and invited his family over to Brad his place to see it. And they were in. And he was he didn't know us that good wonderful. It's all the names you're saying are somewhere in my house. So I'm thinking of the giant Reginald Dennie poster. It's just what of you going supposed to. Which one twenty four she for rolling home. Oh, go to have a gigantic photo of fatty arbuckle in the backyard. So this giant screen print thing. So. So you you not only acquired the memories the recollections 'cause you also. Infused them with. With enthusiasm for their own work that. Yeah. But this didn't always work. There was one director Bradley had one film of his was absolutely terrible. And the poor director was really crushed. But that was at Kohl's. I check it ahead of time. But they was strange things happened. I was a had a date with one of the Duncan sisters at the mosque is club. And she stood me up. And I was sitting in the four in the lobby surrounded by the pictures of the pre poss- presidents of the mosques club. And there was an old lady. And she was looking fixedly at one. And she said who's that? And I said, that's Fred nibble. She did a double take said, you shouldn't know that. You're too young. I said, but I'm fascinated by silent film directors, and she did another double. Take said, I'm married to one. But you wouldn't have heard of him chose henna berry who just happened to play ABRAHAM LINCOLN in the birth of a nation gone onto directing mind, the directing career Fairbanks and people like that. I said I'd love to meet him. She fixed it up for the next day and was December the worst storm imaginable. The roads are awash, but who can Joseph henna berry with total recall. I ask him one question and he gave me a four hour answer. So he henna berry pulled out stills all a lost Valentino film that he directed. Call the sainted devil with Nita Nolte and Helen Dowell g and he had made Valentino work twenty four hours. So that he had a really haggard look, and these still showed it would be wonderful to find the film least this. This was something and his memories to they've they've how held up very well. I haven't found a mistake in anything. He said or anything made up is just a most remarkable, man. And. With with the most wonderful memories. Eat worked with Griffith on as an assistant director to on them. Intolerence all the mother on the laws. He called it. Which is just one of the sequences in intolerance. One of the the time that I was taken aback was ringing very little known actress Dorothy Phillips, and she says rather haughtily I have the time inclination to talk to. And it's maddening because last year at porno need silent film festival they showed one of her husband's pictures, Allen hall by his name was and she was the star of it. And we still know very little about Dorothy Phillips that was rather sad. But on the whole they were the most remarkable people I've ever met an it was a tremendous privilege. What comes through in your book, which was the media result of those those encounters parades gone by is your enthusiasm your palpable enthusiasm, and you and you paint the whole portrait Justice, you're doing for us. Now, you paint the picture of what it was like how you came to meet them how they received you. And so it's it's a human story is not like a dry history of silent film. It's it's it's very immediate. And I. That's what was part of what was so appealing about that book, and that gave it a wider audience than. Typical film book might have had. And when that book came out, I remember reading a review of it in life magazine. I mean, the most popular American magazine of its day devoted page or or so to that book. It was greeted with a great. Wait a claim and. And it became a your calling card for for quite a while. And it still is as far as I'm concerned with the book came about. Because I tell a fib every time I rang people up I say, I'm writing a book about the silent. Iheartradio actively you had to actually write the book. Well, don't happen. In an interesting way. We had film historians in England who didn't try very hard. And there was pictures printed in some magazine, which showed de-deputy Griffith standing in the basket of a balloon with his arm outstretched. If you looked at the picture on cropped, you'd notice the basket of the balloon was on the ground. However, they came to the conclusion that that was how d w Griffith managed to photograph. The most astounding seen probably in entire silent era, which was the camera coming out of the clouds sinking over Babylon right down to the dancing girls, or whatever it was happening on the ground and then doing it in reverse. I mean at -solutely astounding they didn't have to do that. They have to work at hard a postcard. View of the sense would have your Joe drums, but it's. And there is no fish graph of how they did it. And I met alum doin-, and I told him that intolerance for shot that a captive balloon fell about said, listen, this is how it was done. I was at finance. I was an engineer. I had been an engineer and Mr. Griffith wanted to know, what is the most sensible way of shooting that scene. And so he drew for me a picture of a siege. Tower mounted on a huge platform mounted on bogies on mining rails in the center of the siege. Tower was an elevator. And as a single grip could push full. It was so beautifully constructed. And the elevator came down down down. And you saw this gigantic set in in a way that you would never. F forget and then just for good value. He did it in reverse the other way. So it annoyed male lot. When just recently a book arrived on the British market about film history. And it said the scenes of Babylon tolerance for photograph from captive Balu. And so it goes as how parkas it to me. There are more hoses and there are more horses asses in the world and the raw horses. He's not wrong. While we're on the subject of woods, the way these people talked it magical. I mean, you enjoy the thirties and forties rapid fire. Dahlak this this this this this is the people they got it from for instance, in England if you ask a cameraman, oh all the lights hot. He will tell you. You're. Yeah. If you ask one of these fellows as I did. He said hot you could lie to cigar on the beam at one hundred yards. Furnace to it's fully you just repeat all this. I didn't praise gone by that done it all. And then you got to revisit so many of these people when you made your thirteen part. Yes, circus loss here is they wouldn't let you see because the rights are too cumbersome and expensive to clear speech that you made when you received your Academy Award. And every single I wish every studio head every person could hear and see because it's true writes, it just it prevents us from seeing experiencing so much and there's just no need. There's just no need. Absolutely. Why they got paid the first time they could do nothing in fact to produce a came up off to that speech and said, I'll do it. They didn't they didn't if I had all the promises. On my mantelpiece, you'd think it was Christmas. But we have to we have to live in hope. Yeah. We have to live in hope that just just as discoveries continued to be made. Just as you know, films continue to be unearthed that we thought would be lost forever. What is what I thought was going to be a threat the digital invention? In fact, has proved the most marvelous Boone because start love the print from Czechoslovakia was an insufferable. I mean, I've found it hard to look at it myself. But let me Mulbah, plus the has turned it into something that you would not think had needed restoration. It looks so good, and they did the same to resist to the Lubich picture with Mary Pickford and Owen another one forbidden paradise Lubich with Poland agrees, Catherine the great using telephones and rushing around in motorcars in the eighteenth centuries and areas, and that was ghastly. And they made the most beautiful restoration of it. So this hope it drives us nuts. Because people have this thing about I'm a purist. I only watched film. Well, that's foolish because the truth is you want the best version, surely if you're showing someone for the first time if they've never seen it, then you think will I want them to see the best way possible. Because then they might watch more. If it looks terrible. They're not gonna do that. I've I it's rare for us to meet an archivist who ever says something like, oh, no, no, simply must be film. Because as I say when you love something you want it to withstand the test of time my resume. A few days ago on a screen which horrified me because I shot the first half of the film on sixteen millimeter and the size of it is is about your thumbnail the size of the frame and look at that screen. What how why is it do, you know, the don't green that the no large should airy large stra log chances to New Orleans, but it looked great. Didn't it? Thanks to the digital revolution. Yeah. Exactly. And all the old cameraman is we used to call them. Now cinematographers directors of targeting, but all the old cameraman I ever met. We're always looking to the future. There were always interested in the newest technology. They were not backward thinkers, they were not stuck in their set in their ways, they were wide open to new ideas and. One could learn from that could do worse than to adopt that attitude and. You haven't certainly and you've used technology to help you in in your your documentaries, and then your magnificent title sequences in your document. Oh, they would dumb by most of them are done by barrier ridden of Thames television, and well in I was absolutely amazed. What he what he did? And he did all the animation. Including the pulling ice of the intolerance sets. And. Yeah. Genius stuff. Kevin. We're at the mercy of the clock. And we're with Harold Lloyd clinging dangling here now, but but we cannot let you go without at least a little chaplain just a little bit of chaplain because when you made your documentary and David Gill made your documentary, unknown Chaplin. You. You recreated something none of us, including you, whatever have thought possible. Thrilling? So watch Charlie Chaplin develop some of his films right in front of your eyes. Using his out tape. Thrilling only word is thrilling was it was it that to you. Oh, can you imagine? And it was a wicked pirate who owned. Yes. Yes. Raymond robot a great steer to give the devil his due. I would have anything to do with him. I was to pure. He wouldn't have anything to do with me because I was a collector David gale every month. Made it his duty to meet, Raymond. Rowe her and row house was so grateful. He started talking, and he heard that we had found one or two rolls of film in the chaplain volt and he said how many cans did you find and David said, oh, I think about who is fifteen paps. This is at all he said got more than that. And David said, you call than that of what he says, I got more than that of unknown Chaplin footage. It took eighteen months for David to persuade Rojo to round them all up in France and ship them in a massive pen technical mature arrived in Dover with more canned rusty cans, and I'm ever seen in my life. And I wasn't allowed to be the because I was a collector and there were three hundred. Thousand fees of chaplain outtakes and four hundred thousand of Sydney Chaplin outtakes. And I was present when they were all delivered to a laboratory, and we started to look at them. I'm a hot sank was all original negative said that you couldn't recognize anybody except chat with a white massage. And it hurts the is to concentrate along on the stuff, but then it became so absorbing we went through the whole thing. And in the end, David did the most sensible thing, we just looked at each other and thought nobody's alive from this periods. And they're not gonna talk about it. What have we got? What do we do with it? And he said, let's join it all up because it was a total jumble. Join it all up in slate. Order and chaplain didn't have the normal method of slate. One take one slate one take two's slate one take three he just went one two three four and Europe's a six hundred even you know, where you were say he put them in order, and the result was we began to see the development and the program began to make itself. It's it's one of the greatest things I've ever seen in my entire life. And it has been released here in the states on DVD. Oh miracle. So it does. I don't remember. But I was scanning online this morning. They're still copies to be found copies to be had of unknown. Chaplin do whatever you have to do folks to sell a child. It's fine. And there's so much more. We could talk about that will have to wait for another. Visit at another time. Thank you. Kevin. Thank you very much for having me was lovely talking to you. Well, vice versa. And God bless you.

The Sedano Show (HR 2): Ben Lyons gives us the top 10 HS movies

"Saddam with a year on seven hundred twenty spn presented by progressive. Insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. If you missed earlier we had Lindsay therion Bob Nightingale Bob Nightingale Reporting Major League baseball considering realignment to try to play in the CACTUS league and the Grapefruit League basically instead of going all the team all instead of all the teams going Arizona. They would get split up into their traditional spring training sites and play the season that way and they would play in different divisions and it would be weird. The dodgers are being a division with the angels which kind of cool but also with the white sox the Indians and the Cincinnati reds. So that would be a lot tougher than playing in the division with the giants the padres and the rockies right now so not as easy around for the dodgers it was previously and I'm curious to see how people feel about this and we had some calls the first hour and feel free to chime in at eight seven seven seven. Espn eight seven seven. Seven ten three seven seven six. And then Lindsey was talking about the rams and let me ask you this greg and maybe the callers if they want to chime in on this too they can at eight seven seven seven ten. Espn eight seven seven. Seven three seven seven six and I will get to the Jackie macmullan about maybe some hope for the NBA. In just a moment. But do you look at the rams and you think them going all in because Lindsey and I were talking about some of the risks. They took from a contract perspective right. They win all in and traded a lot of assets to get players who they've now given up on and still dealing with the cap occasions of it. They did get to a super bowl. Do you believe that it was worth it? The juice was worth the squeeze. Yes I absolutely do think it was worth it because they made it to a super bowl and they should have actually made the playoffs this year as well especially if they would have all been how it is right now but yes is absolutely worth it. They went for it. They went all in their just. Got Back to La they needed to get the La Fan base back. It was the absolute right. Move even if they're just GONNA be a fourth place team next year. Yeah I one hundred percent agree with you. I think you you needed to capture the audience here and I think they did that in a big way. And they made big strides remember that first year with Jeff Fisher who that was the cure for insomnia. Okay and then Sean came in and there was like a different energy. His energy is fantastic. And it's it's why I think he and I get along really well because we both are light kind of high strung and very passionate kind of Taipei's do a little bit but but but also can show a softer side. Okay anyway but yeah like I I I agree with you. I had to do it and I'm curious to see if anyone thinks otherwise because look it doesn't mean you can't be critical of them. Particularly the Brandin cooks stuff like that one is kind of like. You're looking at like girly again conflicted at the time but understood it because he deserved it and you wanted to create this atmosphere. We're going to reward players now. That is that also can be dangerous. Because you're in a situation where you missed the playoffs last year. You're probably gonNA miss the playoffs again this year. Unless Sean can be ultra creative which I believe in like I'm not counting them out of the playoffs because I believe in Sean as much as anyone in this league that he can pull something together when no one is buying into them like. I actually think that they can surprise some people this year. Because they still have Cooper Cup right. They still have Robert Woods. They've got the two tight ends who were ignorance fantastic last year and I think Everett's still can develop. I think they can do. Running back by committee Henderson was a home run hitter in college as long as the offensive line blocks. I think that they can still get creative on offense. They got Aaron Donald. They'll have to be aggressive on defense. Maybe take some chances but the Guy Jalen Ramsey back there and John John Third. Yeah so they've got some pieces that I think can make them more than just competitive like I don't think it's a wash by any stretch of the imagination. No this is the biggest thing for me. Is that now you've done this. You've done the whole Gulf War it and made it to super bowl now. It's time to figure out how you're going to sustain success. Now now you have a bunch of young bunch of guys that are not really deep into contracts besides Aaron Donald Jared Goff and now it's about making yourself a team kind of like the Like this the Seattle seahawks where you're constantly in the in the playoffs constantly fighting for a super bowl and just maintaining that. It's not about going all in every every other year. Now it's about making sure that you can stay the same throughout for year after year and be like a Patriots Type Organization. Right right agreed. That's that's what you want because I think you've got the right coach to do that. I think he is a stable coach. And he's a very good coach and he's a creative coach and I think that offensively he to me is one of the more creative guys him and interestingly enough Kyle Shanahan who also happens to be in the same division so and by the way they run similar styles to some extent Both are variations of what? Kyle's father did Mike Shanahan. I remember we had when I was doing the afternoon's March. Lara came on with me. A buddy of mine who calls games for Fox and Super Bowl champion with the Denver broncos played for my Shanahan and played with John. Elway and told me Sean. Mcvay is running different variations of the Mike Shanahan offense. He told me that so. It is interesting that those guys kind of come from similar tree right. 'cause Shanahan also was in Washington. Don't forget about that when Shawn and Shawn was in Washington so there's a lot of similarities to those guys and what they do. It's interesting because when you think of Mike Shanahan off at you. Think of Terrell Davis running the football and running the football down people's girly. Yeah yeah but I mean he was also used out of the Backfield as a pass catcher a lot as well so then to make this. Always Terrell Davis. Yeah well that's true but so different time like yes right different era so there's not as much but definitely was still being utilized out of the backfield right. Yeah that's just. It just seems like it seems different. I'm not saying it's not different than stink. Would know better than anybody. It is but it was very much. It seems when I think about it. Mike Shanahan offense. I think of running the football when I think of a a Sean mcvay offense I think of throwing the football I mean think about Denver had some really good guys even even Sean told us the other day that everything got started with girly like they played the pass off of girly basically. The play action was the reason that they were so successful. Passing the ball. So it's just the way the game is created now there's still utilizing the run to create the pass. Yes that's that's what I'm thinking missing from this year's team and maybe maybe it'll be wrong. Daryl Henderson CELCOM Brown could very well be great. Pass catcher out of the backfield and be able to open holes through a hopefully better offensive line. They did dive headfirst though into the market after the Jeff Fisher thing and then they really loaded up and look sometimes you have to pay the Piper for. It doesn't work out and that's just kind of where they're here. They're lucky they've got a guy like sean to make it all work. I think Which will work speaking of diving headfirst? I have a boy and a girl and my eighteen month old boy is at the stage where he's really boy like my daughter at that age would do like like stuff. That was kind of goofy and silly like you know. Run around and jump on the couch. But this guy's like not only running around and jumping on the couch but then he'll stand there and go. And then he dies onto like the pillows on the tackling them and it's just like man so different having a boy and girl. It's pretty hilarious. And like he'll do this for like ten straight minutes like he just like he'll entertain himself that way like it is funny when Wrestlemainia with him and he was diving rope now no but he wants to climb to the top of the couch now which is a bad deal because there is the other side of the couch where he can fall so it's very strange but anyway love it. Look no fear coming up in the next segment. We're going to have our senior shoutout today. Kaley Santos Basketball player here in southern California High School Basketball Player. She was a fantastic basketball player. We'll talk to her. I WanNa Talk Lakers with her a little bit too but speaking of Basketball Jackie macmullan on the wind horse podcast. Hoop collective was talking about something. She saw personally in her own neighborhood that gave her optimism for the NBA and sports. In general. Well let me just tell you what happened today if I may my friend. Her family owns a car dealership and she had to go to work today and she happens to work right next door to a CVS pharmacy in Lowell Massachusetts. And they opened up a drive through testing facility today at the outside the CVS law and you drove up and you waited in line a very very long time and they handed you a swab and use self administered the Swab and you waited fifteen minutes and according to my friend you got a test result. This is shocking to me. I didn't think we were this far along. I don't know if we're this far along. I'm not sure how accurate the test is. I think the one thing I was looking for Bryant because it was the only thing that made sense in order for all. These leagues to proceed was very simple. Every single person involved had to be tested. Every single person every single player coach. Gm trainer referee named the people that we're going to be in this arena media there whatever and that had to be done because we've been taught we've we've learned over and over and over again that many people that have this virus are a symptomatic the NBA could not afford the one thing they could not afford was to restart their season and then have someone come up positive and have to shut it down again. It's the one thing they absolutely could not have now. If this test that I just described to you and this is I mean I guess I have to say it's hearsay because I'm hearing it from another person who's not a medical person who simply witnessed what I'm describing to you. Right now. Literally witnessed out her window. If the testing can be done in a way that you know everyone involved what their status is that gives me a little more hope than what I had four days ago. It's an interesting story like self administered tests. That are being handed out by professionals. And you wait the fifteen minutes. We know the fifteen minute test is approved by the FDA. We also heard that from Baxter homes this week that they're trying to develop a blood test. Where you prick your finger much like you would a blood. Sugar test like a diabetes test. I think that those type of technological advances along with the stuff that Jeff Passan told us that earlier this week where he was told by baseball folks that they believe they'll have more testing and better testing as we get to. May I mean look? There's at least hope for optimism Greg. I know you're a little pessimistic on people administering those tests properly but but again just the ability to do it. I'm sure there's someone showing you and standing in front of you saying here you can do it. Here's how you do it. Keep GOING KEEP GOING. Keep going right. Yeah it's it's not so much pessimistic. I just wonder how well it will work in that way. Just because if you from what used to be and I know that Baxter said that do the prick your finger but it with the swabs from how I understood. It was that you put in your brain. Yeah basically put it deep deep into your nose to get what they needed and then and bring it and bring it down out of still know how people doing it themselves. We'll do that correctly but it look if it's working that's great. If we could find out that that it can help move things along faster and everybody can be tested much faster. I'm all for it. Yeah and I just think it's an interesting step right like I think that it's something to keep an eye out for and I'm glad Jackie brought it up on Brian's podcast. We've got number mania going on right now numbers six and seven. There's only twenty three minutes left. Each one of these polls guys only lasts an hour number six right now is Eddie Jones Deandra Jordan Steve. Garvey if you don't know what number mania is who is the best person to where an individual number in La sports history and the options for number six. Where Eddie? Jones for the Lakers. De'andre JORDAN FOR THE CLIPPERS Steve Garvey for the dodgers and then other so right. Now Steve Garvey is got a pretty big lead fifty percent of the vote on and you can vote at Espn Los Angeles on twitter. Eddie Jones and second thirty four percent of the vote deandre Jordan. Just about ten percent of the vote in third place in other six percent clippers getting no love in any of these polls to be honest none zero. They're not going through a Steve. Garvey is the absolute right answer. Yes so if we go with anything else that's going to be a little disappointing. That Eddie Jones. I loved Eddie Jones but we could bring that percentage down just a little bit and Yeah come on and then In number media we just released the number seven so you can vote there at Espn Los Angeles as well. Lamar Odom Steve. Yeager and other and right now odom running away with eighty three percent of the vote for Lamar Odom. This is like the Laker fans are coming out strong. Yeah yeah well. It's a very laker heavy station twitter. But Still Lamar. Odom was on two different teams ad-dusdur Clippers to he was technically clipper. So if you're voting for him you could you could technically say you're voting for a clipper to he. I think Modem is the right call here was fantastic but the recall agreed. I would agree so you can vote at. Espn Los Angeles coming up next. Kaley Santos High School Girls Basketball Shooting Guard at Rosary. Academy and FULLERTON A two-time champion.

Well what was it like for you this year considering everything that you've been through in your high school career from an athletic standpoint okay High Misano thank you for letting me be on this radio station So they're out this senior year. It's kind of been a tough one for me personally. trying to see different perspectives on everyone since we did lose a lot of people and due to injuries or transfers but throughout this whole process Of My senior year. It's been a really hectic one if I do say so myself Just going on with corona virus. It was really disappointing in the end. Not Finishing my senior year with third state title. But you know we don't know what's going on in the world and we don't expect anything and this is God's plan for us and if he thinks that we were supposed to have this and I can't really jo-john but I'm glad that I was able to at least know that I was going to make it to that state title again and let me ask you this. How was the news broken to you and your teammates about how this was all going to unfold? I believe early March where they told us we were ready to get on our flight to Sacramento. My team was ready. I was in my classroom for my first period and all of a sudden over the intercom that school we got the principal told us the basketball team needs to come to the main office We were expecting like what time we would be leaving or what to expect but unfortunately when they brought out that say. Is has cancelled all of the State Games in general We were pretty heartbroken. uh seniors for as well especially because it is our last one and it was really out of the blue. We were all shocked and there was really devastating. Things that was happening and a lot of us were pretty disappointed sure understandably so Kelly Santoso seniors shoutout from Rosary Academy in Fullerton. She's committed to cal state. La Basketball Program. You played shooting guard. I would imagine there was a lot of fun opportunities for you to score the ball throughout your career. Is there a moment or a game that you think of the most when you think back at your career yes I A few games. That I've been played. I was playing in. I would get a pass from one of my point guards and I would just shoot the ball and act like it's going in shape Just wants didn't goes in a really an unbelievable Moment right there because to me. It's my part in playing the game. It's my job to shoot the ball and being able to contribute points to. My team makes everything much better. Is there anyone you tried to model your game after? Yes I do. I model my game based off my teammates because they do push me to the best of my abilities. My coaches and future I NBA stars or Wnba Stars who are your favorite NBA in Wnba Stars K-league so MBA. I would have to say Kobe. Bryant was my first one growing up with him going up with his number of just seeing him always on TV because we're such Laker Fan and my Wnba Star would have to be either Diana to Rossi because my club team is based off of her. And Yeah Yeah and she was as basically the equivalent to Kobe. What I'm saying the women's game in a lot of ways. Yes yeah she had that Mamba Mentality. There's no question. What are you a fan of Sabrina? Us Q? Two of Oregon. You Watch her play a lot. I'M NOT REALLY. I didn't really watch a lot of women's College Basketball. I mostly watched NBA or WNBA. Gotcha what did you make of the Lakers season? Thus far this year I mean we're talking a lot about trying to get the NBA going. How happy were you? Were the Lakers. Were this season. I was really happy. Just Watch. Keep watching them watching all the replays as they've been putting on in the past few days It's been really exciting knowing that of what everything that they've been through it's been really hectic for them. I know But just seeing all the success that they put in the season. I'm really happy for them. Yeah for sure I would imagine you want to see them. If possible right like clearly. Everyone needs to be healthy and safe but I would imagine you're anxious to see if the season could continue. Yeah I think we all are. I think we all could use the escape. I think right now and you know. I know you love Kobe but have embraced. Lebron no I have not yet. Oh okay why signing there but. Kobe has been my number one in the ever since I was little. So what if what if they finish? The season and the Lakers can win a chamber of Lebron Cuban Championship. Would that would that bring you to? Tim? Bracing him a little more for sure. Yes kenmore me but I have covy first of all I hear you I hear you. Who is your favorite current Laker? Then on this particular roster is there anyone you like your big fan of no. No no just waiting to see waiting to see waiting. I'm still looking. I'm still watching the game so I got no problem. That's all you take your time. There's no are trying to rush you on that Kaley Santos with this year of Rosary Academy in Fullerton. Let me ask you about academics real quick before we let you go like what how is. How are you working out academics? Right now and while you're at it. How are you working out as far as athletics concern?

Although very honest Kobe was still her guy but she has yet to embrace Lebron James for as far as her leaker phantom is concerned but look she was honest told her if he wins a championship. I think she'll embrace him. But she did agree. Lindsey theory joined early to talk rams and of course Bob Nightingale on this story. That's ever changing with Major League baseball about their potential to return. And how they may just do it. Cactus League Grapefruit Grapefruit League now with a play in Florida and Arizona.

There's no excuse for you not to come on the show. There's no excuse and the first time the only time I was on your show. Actually the camera. Eski filling in for you and it was in the afternoon right and and I made a joke about. Wow like the only way to get on the Sodano show is when you guys are hosting and you know Brian and they ran with that. Yeah I don't count that as a win. That's not me being on your show. You weren't on it. I mean I love the key in. Yeah Yeah Yeah well and I. I went on the other night for game seven right. They were doing the You know watching game seven live either we can. Have you answered about fifteen then? Sodano is coming on. So we'll boot you and I was like you gotta be kidding me. I can't even get on with George. Well you're here now and we're exciting your have you. Is everyone healthy? Safe and sound everyone healthy safe and sound The kids are doing great I know you have kids as well. my two daughters million. Luca twelve and nine years old and the hard part for them recently has just been you know the social part of it and realizing they're not going to be going back to school this year. I think there was some sadness. We're supposed to be in palm desert this weekend for Easter. You know we were leaving today. Taking a couple of days off Getting Ready for the NBA playoffs. And Yeah. So that's the sadness around this stuff but I'll tell you were healthy. Were happy doing the best. We can and You know we're thinking about everyone out there and there's so much sadness to the NBA and all that stuff. And I know there's so much more going on for me in humans what we do talk sports right Yup. So it's it's been tough. Yeah no doubt I mean. It's it's funny. You mentioned that because I have a five year old whose birthday is in. May and to her credit and she came to us and she told my wife she's like so my birthday is going to be cancelled right and then yeah crazy and my wife was like well. We're not GONNA be able to have a party because she knows it's caught. She calls it the Germs Right. So the because of the germs. And we said Yeah and then I overheard it and I said well look. You're birthdays not cancelled. Your birthday is always going to be may sixteenth. And we're going to have some fun here with Mommy and Daddy and your little brother and when the germs go away maybe we can have a party again down the road. You know we can figure that but just because your birthday party will be cancelled doesn't mean you're birthdays cancelled so yeah I hear you. Yeah I've got an idea for you. Okay all my instagram. My daughter's ninth. Birthday was a couple weeks ago and we did. It was one of our old neighbors by the way we always call our second grandparents for the kids. We used to live next door to them. They don't have any grandkids that kind of Doppler radars. They had an idea and did a parade down our street for her birthday and we had all her friends drive by honk with it was one of the coolest things ever see. I WANNA look into that. Yeah so that's a good idea. I will talk to. Mississippi Donahue communicates more regularly with the other parents and maybe the kindergarten teacher and we'll work that out because that is a great idea. Thank you for that we can do that. That'd be fun. I'm she would love it. She would just go nuts. It would be hilarious to watch but thank you for this this suggestion. Yes please do please do. As a matter of fact Bergman gets texts McGee my number and we can go. We need to start communicating unite eaters. Like this needs to happen. I absolutely do so. Let's talk about a couple of things before the basketball with you. The other thing you and I have in common I I love for Holly Ball Okay. I played high school. Wally Ball. Yes I go to the. Adp Hermosa event every year. Since I've been here as a matter of fact last year I missed you because I had the kids. We rented a hotel right down the street at the Beach House. Peach houses right there on the sand on the Strand and we had the kids with us so they needed to get done for a little while but Allie Clifton and her husband had come by to hang out with us and then they went to go. Watch some of the matches While we were dealing with the kids so I had just missed you that day. Apparently too so I'm glad we were able to get together because volleyball to me is one of my favorite sports in the entire world. Like how did how did you get involved with the crazy George's because growing up here and so cal? I grew up in the valley and you know boys high school volleyball was only the beach communities really back in the eighties and I was you know. Eighty seven eight nine on my sophomore junior and senior years and boys volleyball. Kinda hit and all the high schools started getting it so i. Was You know Basketball Baseball football my sophomore year? I just focused on hoops and we started a boys volleyball team which was in the spring so I played in eighth grade. I loved it. I said you know I'll do this to to play after basketball to keep in shape for a few months before Summer League starts and there was senior year about I would go play hoop some somewhere. Small School and I had a great volleyball player on my team in Ken Lynch. We're both getting recruited and we both decided to go to northridge. I spent five years at Northridge went to the National Championship game. I wasn't good enough to play after but I started coaching and teaching and getting into the volleyball I. I don't know how I started announcing beach volleyball. It was like a gift from God. I swear because it led me to wear amp today but a couple of my buddies. A Lotta guys I play with and against for on the pro tour. The tour was going through some changes late nineties. They needed a guy to Kinda help. Nc I grab the MIC and I had it for eighteen years that craziness. Yeah it's crazy. It's awesome you do a great job at it. I love it because I. I'm I'm a huge. Vp Guy. Fan and by the way Mrs Sodano also went to seaside. Yes got a lot in common. I knew this would be a new relationship. Alex is trying to hide you all the time but I told her listen. You GotTa get down to Donald Show. I love the guy from all time. Yeah so in Clifton. You cannot hide this. We've just become best friends mcgeown idea and I are now in a bromance. You're going to have to deal with it Clifton karate garage now yeah for sure I mean all time. Let's talk some hoops here. Real quick man. I mean clearly. The Lakers season was just incredible. Were you even surprised how quickly they yeah? I was for sure and I hurt Kaley speaking before. But what a great interview by the way I it's funny when when fans are like not yet embracing Lebron or this Laker team or finding a new best player. I I find that hard to believe with the way they were playing this year up for me. Georgia was weird. I you know I knew they would be good because I kept going back to all right well every night. They're going to have two of the best you know three players on the four with ADM Lebron's I know they're GONNA win game coming off the last year. He just didn't know which Lebron you were going to get So I was real surprised. At how quickly? They jailed on and off the court. The chemistry is fantastic. You GotTa Give Paul Anka and that staff and a ton of credit frank. Vogel the coaches for the way they were able to put that together. A Dwight beat the resurgence of Dwight. Howard the way that team pulled for each other even bench guys. You're w they just have the perfect kind of chemistry and then you gotta give the credits Lebron. Ad Those guys the way. They played selfishness. I tell you George Business so much fun man because this is the eighth year of our network and I was there from day one left Fox came over. Start the new network James Worthy of the two guys have been the whole time. Robert Ory We we we've been through a lot of losses. I mean we have not won a playoff game since the Lakers. So it's been a tough seven seasons. You're the first cases the people see after the losing season of all time the longest losing streaks of all times this that so it's been really brutal so this year man was so much fun and I guess we'll give you you know just straight up answer. Yeah I really was surprised I I. I thought it would be midseason after Christmas. They start kicking into gear and look the tough part of this is they. Were playing so well before this pandemic really affected us here in this country that it would be a real shame if some way somehow he couldn't get this thing started again. Yeah and and you know I think especially for LAKER FANS. I think the media and meet meet me to all a minute. I think I needed to see the way. They played Milwaukee and the clippers right before the season suspended. The game was officiated a little differently. You have the physicality of a playoff game reminded me of a game in May or June and I saw the way the Lakers played in. Never forget that clipper game you know what forty it less than forty dollars after the the bucks game around thinking myself. This is a team that has legit chance to win a championship. And you can only say about a couple of teams and they're one of them but I think I really started to get excite him excited all year George but after those two games for the end right after. That was such a bummer man and and I dunno George Longer. We get away from it the harder. I think it's going to be. I mean I did hear Jackie's interview the sound bite. You played That's interesting I agree. I mean the only way back going with the testing gets gets consistent quick. Yeah Yeah and Jeff. Passer was on this earlier in the week and he thinks that baseball is feel confident that they'll be more testing available to both of them and the general public. So we'll see. Yeah I just man. It's it's it's tough you know. Think Allen might tweeted something yesterday about you know if if there's no basketball the rest of the of the year and they they cancelled the season with this a success and and you know the responses are absolutely no the Lakers are about championships. And I kind of had a different take Jordan. Ah It's been a huge success obviously. It's disappointing. Yeah what it's a biggest bummer ever especially for Laker Fan. But a lot. Good thing for sure Lebron the same. He said the same thing. So gator before we let you go could goodyear man. I was just shocked. It was like recent that people were starting to talk about him for. Mvp He's been anyone for me. Yeah I agree I if I had a when we did a mock vote on. Espn DOT COM. I voted for him. I he was number one guy so I actually had him. I put Chris Paul Third. I had to see I think the day yeah. He was incredible in the fourth quarter and they've exceeded expectations but real quick.

I love his dad. I don't want you and then the whipped cream bikini allie long. Yeah it higher up on the list but yeah number six varsity blues at number five. I'm actually in this movie. If you blink you'll miss my cameo at seen it duper bad with Jona Hill and Michael Sarah. You're in that movie. I am when they when they're at the first like adult. Frat party with Joe Rubio and they're in the back of your fun all around my neck in like right in the middle of the fight so super bad Emma Stone Joanna before they all pop that movie. Put It on this weekend. You will not stop laughing. It's ridiculous it's on cable right now. I was flipping around my guide earlier last last night. It was on somewhere I was going to stop on Rabat. GotTa be on premium cable. We're not going to do. No no no no he was. Yeah it was. It was like either showtime or Starz or something. I don't remember what it was. Yeah because that is a hard are as they say in the business. So yeah I think is Represents to me like the Raunchy sex comedy high school which is of course porkies in American I and so many of those kind of movies. The super bad my favorite of the batch there and just as my number four choice. George Scream represents a high school slasher movie. I must have seen this one when I was in high school. Ten Times in the theater of course drew barrymore opening sequence being I contact with Lillard and You know he'd Aldrich and rose McGowan A kind of a satire two of the genre. I love the original scream number three. I appreciate it more and more as I live here. Los Angeles clueless Alicia Silverstone Donald Phase on Stacey Dash Brechin Meyer the late. Britney bursary. I've ever seen it at a Kid. But then seeing it more as you live out here and the references to Pico and the Valley. It's just a time with classic and my one two punch just like yours. Georgia number two dazed and confused from director. Richard Linklater mcconnahey. Ben Affleck to Parker Posey. It's an all star cast and I love the the chew experiences of a high school that are represented in the film that turning seniors and the incoming freshmen and then of course McConnell. Hey with the iconic I keep getting older they say to say and then last but not least number one is fairness dealer. I mean the premise loads the stakes are. He's cutting high school and from the from the musical numbers to to Fairs looking down the barrel of the Lens Matthew Broderick so perfectly cast great high school movie of All Time Yeah and still holds up like you can watch that right now and it still holds up between the sausage king of Chicago. I mean this is so great stuff in that movie. His whole look to is best friend with the Red Wings Jersey. On and yeah. There's there's a hammer moments in it too. Yeah when Cameron like crashes his dad's car and we've all been there. Yeah Yeah and when she jumped into the water and the her her that fringe jacket. You Know She's beautiful movie. Yeah you said definitely still holds up and I I've always said they should make that Broadway musical. I think that'd be great on stage. Big numbers they're wonderful piece of his room but every kid cut school growing up and made up crazy. Excuse he just did the best number one here Ben here a couple that that I would have had on my list or that. I thought could at least maybe honorable mentions.

How about our Ba- who's really offer is it's hard to narrow it to ten. Which is why you told me you had to do ten. Because we'd be leaving wage magnon out if we did the normal five that we've been doing on some of these conversations. How about our boy Freddie prints and she's all that I know I felt I felt bad. I put this list together and I go. Oh my God. This is an F. T. J. free pop. Ten Highschool movie like that guys wanted the high school movie. Gods like I can't believe I'm doing this but yes she's all that it's fantastic. I had a tough time leaving. Rushmore off the list. Well as another Matthew Broderick movie election which is terrific with Reese Witherspoon You know moving and more serious movies to George like dead poet's society school ties or even Lady Bird or short term twelve in recent years. These are all movie that really stood out for me. I was trying to put this list together. And then of course big comedies. Like House Party and bring it on and you know those kind of You know silly movies project x you know. Those kind of movies are a lot of fun to survive genre for storytelling and remember the titans. Don't forget that that was a good movie to sports. Movies hoosiers over not on my mom. One of my favorite sports movies but then high school obviously and ten. Yes standing delivered dangerous minds. You know easy a bring it on. Let's goes on some fun genre abandoning so that'd be digging it. Yeah Ben I got like thirty seconds here for you. Matt Berry posed the question.

HR 2: Crashing the Bubble

"This is. ESPN. Gano show weekdays from noon afternoon morning. Here. Is. Sodano. On the Wednesday deadline. George SPN LA DONALD show. ESPN radio presented by Progressive Insurance. Guests appear. Via the Shell Pennzoil performance. Line. George going to be back on. Monday with L Z. in the ASS nunes kicking off their new show every day here on ESPN LA at four o'clock we'll afternoon drive with L Z, and George should be on the morning show crew getting back together in the afternoons. Signed for some straight talk, you know what covering your bases is in baseball right? Making sure you have no holes in your defense, but the shift on do whatever you gotta do catch the ball while that's the kind of coverage you'll get with straight talk wireless and you'll pay up to fifty percent less than big time carriers and still use their same networks just forty five bucks a month gets you the unlimited plan with twenty five gigs of high speed data faster than two g no contract no mystery fees fully covering your bases for fifty percent less that's half. Straight. Talk wireless only at Walmart savings may vary see terms and conditions at straighttalk dot com deadlines filling in for George on ESPN LA I saw Damian Lillard last night. Do what I used to do when I was a kid when I would really play to K. or dreamcast or NBA live seriously when I was at the height of my video game powers back in high school in College. Take some time to create my own player, give him his own name. Sometimes, it would be Ben Lyon. Sometimes, it would be method man whoever I wanted to create I do a create a player. I would try to run up all of my stats make all of my attributes at ninety nine. See if I could win a game as Johnny blaze's himself method man to Cowan stallion the one man army. So let's see if he can go out there and win a basketball game we'll that's what Damian Lillard did last night that's what he's doing. The last few games, this entire bubble experience minus the two free throws I think ultimately missing the two free throws humanizes him in a way that makes them more relatable makes it easier for you to root for I mean. Put the fact that he might play your La Lakers aside. There's no way you can consider yourself a hooper, a basketball fan, a sports fan and not be seeing what this guy's doing. Love. Every minute of it because not only is he playing at a high level what he represents as an underdog over overachiever under size. Doing things that. We haven't seen on a basketball court before, but also representing a small market team at a time of player mobility when guys switch teams that causes a lot of alien nation for fans we just have rich climbed in on the phone and he'll tell you Katie lost a lot of fans when he switched teams and he probably lost some more when he switched teams the second. Time. So they willard taking into consideration he plays in a small market. He doubles down on staying in Portland he wants to do it there. Then he goes that it was the clippers you gotTa love that again, put your Lakers a day with dame next week. Aside you gotTa love the fact that he's joined with the clippers going out with Paul. George going out with Pat Bev. Clippers doing very clippers things which I think basketball Kara might ultimately come back around on them. But to see, Dame, put on that show just as hooper you love to see it as a Laker fan you have to be scared. You have to be terrified. You have to be concerned. You can't just assume well, there are the number one seed well, the blazers might not even make it this weekend. Let's all. Let's all. Let's all be real with ourselves. The Blazers are going to the NBA playoff. So Blazers are playing the Los Angeles Lakers. Next week, the blazers are going to give the Lakers fits with what they do with Damian Lillard. Is that enough to beat the Lakers four times in ten days and a bubble on Turkey Lake Road on a Disney campus. Probably not. Spots. Damian Lillard. Is One of those players you're catching them at a special time in his ascension in the Basketball Pantheon of greats these are the moments that fine your career. They play video naismith in fifteen years in springfield. Doing Superman stuff. It's OK Laker fans to take a moment pause. Acknowledge it appreciate it. Wow. He's amazing. and. Still. Put it aside and focus at the task at hand I know Greg isn't worried. He's town himself. He's not worried. He's saying they got this siege as down with the fractured back. Yes. mellows been great but it's mellow. He's thirty five and doing a wine newsletter. So he's hitting some jump shots in the regular season Games but can you count on a playoff series probably not but is the Willard enough to give the Lakers a serious problem in the first round. I mean the way that you put it like we're talking about the Lakers here we're not talking we're talking about two of the best players in basketball. Anthony Davis in the broad. James we're not talking about Mitchell Robinson and Kevin Knox and the Knicks so. Robinson put up a historic field goal season known as had a higher percentage in the history of the NBA and Michele Robinson this year. That's that's really nice. Were they in the bubble I forgot. Kevin. Knox is twenty one years old and one day. Oh, that's that's a that's wonderful. Set to I. Forgot were they in the bubble? They are in talks of a second bubble to work on player development a location. Okay. So there in the the the loser bubble. Got It. Mike Talk. The Knicks have more first time voters than any team. Oh, first time voters. That's that's what we're looking for out of a team either late we're not. We're not talking about them like terrified terrified you used the word terrified in terms of Damian Lillard and the Portland Trailblazers when it comes to the Lakers, we as Laker fans needs to be terrified of Damian. Last night the last two nights hundred twelve points know avery Bradley no rage on Rondo. Caruso is going to become a lot of memes. I probably will, but he's GonNa be. Flying through the air for his show dunks. Only. Different places you're looking for you, but you're GonNa Sixty, one points. If the Lakers they will give up points to Damian Lillard. They have trouble with quick guards just like him and I think he went for over fifty in a game to season against the Lakers. So it can happen and he's an totally fine. But the fact is that you're going to have multiple guys in the in these playoffs. They'RE GONNA put up twenty thirty points on the Lakers by themselves where if it's just dame. Finally. They got Nurkic back. They got Gary Trent coming to rezone. Mike get. It got whiteside a double double this dont. Let's not go into whiteside. Whiteside is a complete joke. If you follow him on snapchat or Instagram, you'll know his accession with Red Velvet cupcakes very unhealthy I. worry about his diet be honest and the bubble but. By the way Red Velvet is just chocolate with red diets nothing different. There's no different flavor to it but get he's obsessed. I look. All, the factors that would play into the Lakers having an advantage in a traditional playoff format homecourt advantage. Avery Bradley would be back playing. That that energy of staples on a Sunday that's all out the window now, and now you've got an environment or neutral court. You've got a player who's planning as well as any player. We've seen play like I don't know if you can play basketball at a higher clip and he's been playing during these bubbles. Those two free throws aside I got I, don't know if you've seen that. He's been fantastic and he's absolutely the MVP of bubble I. I don't know who else you could possibly give it to because he's been playing out of his mind especially these last two games but again, the Lakers. From the Lakers I've watched every single game from start to finish even in the Games when Anthony Davis doesn't play her Lebron doesn't play. It's they had their defense is good enough to stop this blazers team and they're a top five defense in the bubbler top five defense outside of the bubble, and now you're starting to see the offense start all kinds of pick itself back up to guys are starting to hit shots that Saturday game against Indiana offense started to click. A little bit more. Yes they lost. But then this other game right here on win on Monday against Denver the offense was clicking and it was clicking nicely and you're seeing the passes all started kinda hit at the right moments when the before you felt like they were just a second a step behind a second too late on every one of their passes it's all starting to click they're starting to find their rhythm again and that's dangerous for every other team in the This is where the Lakers are going to be able to figure this Portland Trailblazers in this. Damian Lillard hot streak doubt. It's not about slowing down Dame, how do you stop dame would know avery Bradley, Salute No. It's not about that about you just said, how do they this Laker team figure out how to not be lasting three pointers the not be lasting filled over the last when Lebron the floor and offense efficiency and if you have Lebron James New Have Anthony Davis and you still struggle so much offensively than that is the area you need to focus on. So it really has nothing to do with dame, I set up the whole dame thing in one to come for you and have fun with it because really at the end of the day, it doesn't matter it's. Like what the Rock says, doesn't matter what Damian Lillard does because it's about the waker oftens and figuring out how to get some efficient shots up there without Lebron having to do everything because that is a Formula Success Greg that does give me concern he's putting pressure on coups. He we were talking about it yesterday on the show after the shock who's sitting against the nuggets says, we cannot win a championship without Kyle Kuzma playing. Well, we need confidence in coups I need help on thirty five on the Bron I'm a Jack Knife on the basketball court. I, do everything I literally do everything and I lead social justice movements and I'm a father and on the leader of the League. I mean he's. You can't ask him to take on more for this team show slowing down Damian Lillard should have nothing to do Lebron. James. Got Enough on his plate. Can they get him some shots somehow elsewhere can bubble cheese not turn into Swiss cheese and make a couple of shots. That's GONNA. Stay with me now greg forever. Now I don't think that's ever Latte. Leaving my lexicon I hope he's not offended by it I hope he embraces it I. Hope he gets craft endorsement. But I am forever calling slam bubble she says to you. You're welcome. Now, go back into arenas and you're GonNa Start doing your whole heckling Gig that you do. Double Cheese is going to be one of the things you start throwing dion waiters. No matter what teams. I think we just upgraded from tacos to string cheese when the? Lakers whole team saunder one hundred points and get the W.. I mean that would be nice. Walk out of there. The Nice fresh thicker polio as you're heading to your car. Right. Exactly. But. This is like what you're talking about the offense though, and now what you saw from Calcutta in that game, and hopefully he can stay consistent with it and he continues to to progress and start being the the aggressive rebounder that he has been the last couple of games and also. Hitting shots and hitting three point shots if he's putting up twenty to twenty five points a game. Then, you have a situation where you don't have to worry when one or the other of Lebron Anthony Davis are off the floor because Anthony Davis coups will be on the floor together or Lebron. Kuzina. Word Lebron A. The two of them will be on the floor together at some point making your offense start moving, and then at the end of the Games, you put all three together and you still have a pretty good defensive team because Anthony Davis is a fantastic defender whose gotten much better especially against. Bigger Wings and then you'd have whoever else you put on the. Fan Club card chairing number of the. Your Number Zero Jersey, and you wearing the purple one of the gold one right now no I still need to see. It happened consistently I need to see it happen in the playoffs I greg. Shirt with a lot of holes in it. Now Greg. I did I. Did I what I've always wanted. To succeed. He hasn't so far. He hasn't been the consistent guy that we need, and if you're anybody at your of if you're a Laker Fan, you cannot tell me that he has been consistent through his first couple of years here with the Lakers it's just not possible to say, has he been good in the bubble? Absolutely. Are you following Gucci and Prada. Right now. Are you following a Weenie Harlow on instagram was going to say I'm me and when he harlow lower now? You hanging out on the boat with. This guy part of the family this guy. I guarantee you at some point in the next five years you'll be sitting on a boat with Wendy. Harlow. If the world can open up just for that to happen. There's other things going on covert, but if that can happen and let's you know we're all gonna be in a good place to all this out Already, get ready get back into a little bit the rams on hard knocks but also want to really get into the tweets from Adrian War Drewnowski who was able to. Convey this information that lit up twitter lit up. Mean Shout King. I don't know if you guys follow my friend just side Johnson is. On. Twitter. So it's it's it's a fun thing to think about the idea of MBA players bringing guests into the bubble who might that WHO that might be. However, there's some real life elements to it. There's some serious elements to it that I think ultimately will benefit the Lakers as they try and make a playoff run in the most unusual basketball environments that anyone's ever played Ben Limestone in for Sodano on seven to ten ESPN La. Live and local. Were listening to this? Show. ESPN now back to sit down. ESPN LA been lies thrown in for George ESPN radio presented by Progressive Insurance get your quote at Progressive Dot Com. Today. which climbing con in the show rich axes to work with Jay Z and we got over from Rockefeller records to rock nation to Kevin Durant in the boardroom and one step at a time and Now, he's out there produced movies and was kind enough to call on the show talk about the podcast who would you like to hear? Greg Guy like rich climbing or maverick Carter or rich Paul or these sort of leaders of the basketball business behind the scenes. Who would you like to see them sit down with like out side of hoops rich has jack from twitter as his first guest on his podcast today. I think Jack would be a good one I'm actually gonNA listen to that one. Maybe Lawn Musk. PODCAST. Maybe eight. Crazy interesting guy I sit down and listen to a conversation between rich. Paul Alon Musk. Actually. I'd like to see you on musk in the in the shop. So. You're. Going to see that guy sitting around having a glass of wine with Mon- Shumpert that'd be nice. eamonn just hanging out what what's what's wife's name was? Brian. Asked. Yeah. Yeah Grimes. Yes. So it's cool that these guys now are able to you know take their interests of basketball to the all these other things in. Heard a lot of these interests coming to the lights during the pandemic with CJ mccollum who my gosh hold newfound respect having gone through his back fracture that he's dealing with. But is man brought eighty four bottles of Pinot noir down to Orlando and keeps them in his room air conditioned at fifty four degrees home. These guys are bringing strange things into the but what's the longest Greg you've had to work away from home? To work away from Home Oh gee. You ever had to work for Moulvi or travel on. Somewhere. I think at the Super Bowl in New York back in like twenty. I? Don't even know what year was twenty twelve something like that and that was for a week. So I think, yeah that's the longest that I was away from home easily. Yeah you know I. I've had different jobs over the years that have kept me away from my home for three weeks or five weeks you live in a hotel you're in some towns that you're not used to, and it can definitely Kinda. Blend all blends together. You kind of are this yet not just bubble in terms of the protection element you're in this bubble of not having a larger sense of the world. And I think for some of these MBA plies players are starting to get a real stir crazy. Start and get a little hidden wall. I. Mean there was a great stat that Tom Hammer. Straw had that that the percentage of Dunks are down twenty five percents in the bubble. Guys aren't jumping out of the gym like they were before are they a little reserve? Are they out of it? Are they a step slow look not sure what the reasoning is but the idea of athletes being out of their comfort zone. Is Interesting to me in a psychology behind it. So now here's Adrian words. Now, cues tweeting out today that the NBA is allowing for players to be able to bring in up to four guests starting after the first round of the playoffs because teams like the kings and the magic and the wizards and the sons, and the nets will probably be long gone by that. So you leave all the all those seams, leave, the players, the coaching staff, the organization and incomes you know players, families, players, wives. The teams are allowed for each player to have won playoff ticket per game for a guest plus an additional admission for child thirty, two inches and below. So if he ever abnormally large four year old, they're not allowed to come to the game interesting I know it's Disneyworld. So I guess they put a height requirement on a lot of things but thirty two inches to get into a basketball game seems rather arbitrary number. Does seem like such a weird number like, yeah. Like what if you do have what if you're? Jack was in the bubble and he added. His son who happened to be. I don't know forty five inches because at four years old because he's just gigantic humans. You can't blame bring them in because. We're body shaming a four year old for being tall kind into the game got seems like we're setting up. Kim. I am disaster there. But then this is the part where it gets really really interesting here's. Just tweeting out. Here's who isn't eligible to come into the bubble. Any individual the player has not previously met in person with whom the player has had limited in person interactions, for example, known by the player only through social media. Happy like Hey I'm a big fan of your blog I follow you on twitter love free to come down to the bulb go and watch some games that's off the table guys. I just that's my favorite part of the whole thing is like it's what's what is the definition of is is rate like what is the definition of limited I need to know you'll be allowed jarring in family and established long standing personal friends. Lot. Yes longstanding. So how do you prove the history of your friendship? Right well, let's see. That's where you can start kind of getting around these things right. So what if you say, Oh, this is this is my this is my best friend I've known him for for thirty five years his daughter I grew up with her, but she happens to be you know in the eighteen twenty years old now and she's you know looking good on I. G. Just, happened, she's a part of the family they I. I've always look always. On their photos look comments, photos and five years ago. Known each other for five years. We are a long standing friends. I easily make those things happen. That's that's the best part to yeah. Look at by picture from five years ago that I wrote on yesterday. So. Here's where all of this and it's so again, a sobering reminder of gravity of the situation, the NBA going above and beyond to keep these athletes safe in their family. Safe. But you it. Also I think will be something that should Lakers advance out of the first round, which everyone thinks they will. Will provide them with the comfort support sense of normalcy to allow them to continue on in this postseason because the Lakers have. A little bit of an older team might have some Samore fathers on their team than some other teams. Jr.. Lebron Rondo AD couple guys or married. Jared Dudley you've got families you've got commitments responsibilities to people other than yourself. Having those people come down to the bubble I would imagine will really alleviate some type of stress or JR Smith and talk talking six hours a day it said in an article to his kids on his face time he didn't have to do that. Now that's GonNa I think up with those guys in the team but then for the guys on the team. Quinn Cook Kyle Kuzma. Casey p some of the guys who might be distracted with life outside of basketball. The fact that the League is cracking down on agents, managers, physical therapists, personal chefs no tattoo artists know, hey, that's my buddy from. You know it's my other buddy. No none of that. No no riffraff. So I think that'll benefit some of the Lakers to who might have some distractions off the court. Yeah. Lebron talked about it before like it's tough being away from his family for as long as they thought that they have already. So if you bring them into the bubble with them, then I think that that's GONNA help lebrons psyche is mind he's already talked about off the floor stuff which. I can't speculate on what that off the court stuff is but my guess is maybe something to do with him not seeing his family. So if that's part of it, having them all in there that could just make him get better and you saw you saw the Phoenix Suns thing that they did that John Ireland tweeted out earlier where they got that rise from seeing their family in do the the Internet introductions, the player introductions to see Cam. Johnson's family call him out in the kids. You know twenty years old at North Carolina first year in the NBA means a lot you know and and it was a nice little touch I thought. So she got monty. Everything. He's been through with his family to have them. You know shout him out and introduce him in the in the LINEUPS. The NBA family thing is very real. You feel that sport way more than you do the other sports. But not only will be immediate friends and family potentially in the ball ball Stephen a Smith has some thoughts about how the NBA players might adjust to life once the playoffs Kickoff Road Steve. Loneliness. You better. Let somebody come up in there and seem. To do some I gotta say when we lived Dr Steven, what do you mean? Simple. They. Understand much. Go ahead. Hey listen. Let's let's listen and it would be nice to see you know the whole family and all that stuff I got that you understand I really really do but we all know that you know six dollars teams are going home at the end of this week or right cause they ain't GonNa be in the playoffs, right? Okay. So you got the teams roster and all of their personnel now you can't just let family come up yesterday but you let was somebody can then you can let a wife or girlfriend come I would strongly advise the NBA to facilitate that happening but fair August, thirtieth not after before. It would our strong about just walk around. This one. What is come to? Searcy, I think this this peak twenty, twenty Greg CNA screaming about conjugal visits to the NBA playoffs. This is. This is absurd. Bruce Exactly. What it is it's peak twenty twenty. What is happening? But he's not lying I mean he's he's telling it like it is I think that there's most of the players in the bubbler probably sitting there saying. Hey. This guy's right like let's. Let's do this before people come here. It's not ageism. Is it relationship is them? We're saying, Hey, I'm only qualifying or quantum arm or valuing or acknowledging your relationship because it fits within the confines societal norms, and that's having a wife or a long standing girlfriend. But let's say you play by different set of rules. Let's say you like to go out there. Saying. You can't bring guests. I guess you can't yeah I mean. But it's also you don't want to put the other families in that situation to see that going on as well. So that's the problem is also this is not like a plus one at a nightclub, and if you WanNa, bring your wife or you WanNa bring someone you just met that's up to you know it's it's it's health pandemic. So one person affects all people so. The, I think the idea behind and this is real talk here the idea behind limiting the types of guests who can come in to just immediate family members people you've had a long term relationship with are in constant contact with then it assumes the next part of that relationship with you've been talking to them. You both know the severity of this situation you both know the stakes, you both know the health precautions necessary. It's not just some stranger that you are welcomed into your world and you don't know what they're what they're about. We unfortunately, as a society have to take these precautions to keep our personal bubble tight as we slowly grow it and grow it back to the place where hopefully one day can pop. We don't need bubbles ever again. Ben Lines filling in for Sodano, bring it back to some of the stuff I wanted to talk about the dodgers today where they gave up a home run to Manny Machado that still going Grand Slam. So they are banned from the rest of the show then lines in. Tennessee yet. Ten ESPN please. Don Osho. ESPN LA, the show rose on Friday on back. No show tomorrow because the lake show taken on the Kings in a last seating game before the postseason next week in the. NBA. Sabi back on Friday when a scoop. Jackson in. Maybe my buddy Sulaiman Massa Kayla my call him a big show on Friday here filling in for Sodano, and then he's back next week with L. Z. can often four o'clock right here on ESPN radio which has always presented by progressive insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line and the NBA is on ESPN radio tonight. Kawai in the clippers visit the nuggets that presents presented by indeed coverage begins at five thirty Pacific on most ESPN radio stations that two three match up in the Western Conference for the longest time I was just thinking okay. The Clippers got this. But after watching the Cobra Kai Michael Porter Jr. do thing the other night bowl bowl. QUARTERBACK FOR THE DENVER, broncos in the three thousand, I? Don't know those nuggets man looking tough no Greg's not a nugget guy. But I'm kind of a nugget guy. I am not a nugget guy at all I actually think that they're frauds and I don't think they make it out of the first route. What's Yeah I? Don't think it depends on who they play it. Look they play. For You If they, if they play the jazz, which is how it's set up right now. Then I, think they get out of the first round but then they lose the second, they can't. They're not getting out of the second round period I. There's No I. Don't think there's any chance I think they're frauds. Though bowl yen played before the bubble. Now he's crossing people shooting threes. He couldn't provide the defensive support that Jesus couldn't provide but apparently. Getting better if you're relying on bold, I'm sorry for we're on different. Hey before we get back into the bubble, talk it and what's going on in the NBA I was taking a look at this greg, the other day the top five highest paid. Movie Stars of Twenty Twenty. And I was curious if you could I wonder out of the top five I say before you get three strikes that you don't get three of them don't get some of them. Yeah. The top five highest. Hey male. Actors of Twenty Twenty. Wow well, the rock has to be one of them, right? Okay. So you got one number one, the rock eighty seven and a half million dollars although I can't name one good movie he made he doesn't make good movies anymore. So it's well, I mean well, he is in the frame more the rock is not one of those. They don't make them like they used to Duane, it's not like he's Really were. Looking For their own before the money and the fame too come. To theory was a good movie. My kids love to theory. It was very entertaining movie too. So don't don't start hating on the rock just yet. But you got one four spots left in the top five male movie actors highs paid in the world so. God I. Still Think it's gotta be guys likely to Capri or still up there. Now. Cap Too busy saving environment making environmental documentaries in a little while since the revenue. Yeah. I'm not GonNa do it has been a little while since revenue but all right. So I'm trying to think of maybe things that guys that are in like VIN diesel type guys that are in those. In the fast and furious movies, this man lives his life one quarter mile of time, and it's VIN diesel. He's at number five, fifty, million despite the fact that fast nine got the lay. That was one of the first things during covy when I was like man. This is real. They push fast. Let's actually. I know I know it's Kinda. Crazy It wasn't a big movie though, but I think. Adam Sandler still does a whole bunch of stuff with Netflix and he's starting to come out with more movies. Keith does demand a lot of money I'm going out sandler number nine in the list. At Five. So close. There yet I hope Mike God Uncut Gems was incredible. It was so uncomfortable. It was so uncomfortable the entire time, but it was just a fantastic movie. One of my favorite finally agree on a movie. Houses southie brothers. All right let's continue on. You got three spots left number one highest paid male actor in the World Dwayne the Rock Johnson despite the fact can name any good movies you got two three and four open at five vin diesel nine good movies six of which he's in right? So I got one more strike left and I just WanNa make sure that I picked somebody that you ought to get a little a little bit more older school still right but I'm not sure if they've been in Oh, you know what? Let's do Hugh Jackman. A Wolverine movie don't while the greatest showman was a while ago. They don't pay the boy on is to sell out the Hollywood. Bowl and his Broadway musicals it's not going to happen you. Come in. At number four, Ben Affleck Batman still plus he's busy me be I know now rob patents in but he still making fifty five million dollars somehow at number three. Hey, once once hamburger hey hey, protein shake he got a private jets runzheimer proteins mark Wahlberg don't take. On the Internet in my shirt. Fifty eight million from Mark Wahlberg. You the other members of the funky Bunch Greg? Donnie Wahlberg. was wasn't he I'd like to maybe next week on the show and get Hector Booty Inspector I. Wonder if he'll on the number two. And number two Deadpool Ryan Reynolds. That was the other one I was going to go I went with Hugh, Jackman instead of Ryan Reynolds and I am not happy with myself. Those two in an age old sued the two of those guy scenario you went with you on that. Yeah. Movie Stars. Nice Nice to sort of think about as we go through global pandemic, we're all counting our pennies in our blessings and. battening down the hatches and getting resourceful. It's nice to know that VIN diesel made fifty four million dollars last year so. Could be down in my heart. Thank you like it. All right in the world to Vin diesel still making. Money. Getting back to to the bubble he's having a honest last night and. Once a Laker, always a Laker University of Michigan Zone Wagner. If you'RE GONNA if you're gonNA headbutt somebody doing it against a wizard is the wrong time to do it. This was a crazy moment. He didn't get a chance to see it mobile tried to take charge at the free throw line on. Godspeed for having the stones to do that and then He. didn't react to kindly goes up to him at mid court and in just booms in Edina Dawn, not full in the chest but went to mow wagner head. Booming not skulls the look on Boone Hauser's face. Right there is one of pure shock and all. I wonder what the they come out today and say what they're going to do as far as the suspension goes because the bucks have one game left against the Grizzlies I think. Which helps the grizzlies chances for the plane game at least they're going to get nothing not Jaanus is gonNA play much anyway. But I would imagine if you had a guy that's a multiple game suspension. Yeah and that's going to hurt them. I mean, that's just that's your superstar. That's one of the best players in the a possible MVP and your head butting Mo- Wagner I mean that's just not smart. Yep holders faces what what is wrong with you what are you doing? So I imagine it's going to be a couple of games. Hopefully, it's just the one game and then he just go back go into the playoffs and everybody's at full strength you can't do one game for headbutting you've gotta give me two games for headbutting dudes Gimme of Last game, which wasn't gonNA play in any way and give you the first game of the playoffs actually gives that series a little bit of juice. Nobody's talking about the play in game for the eight spot in the east whether it's Orlando or Brooklyn or lever sneaks in there. Now, all of a sudden I'm looking at that buck series a little closer knowing Janas might miss out I wouldn't toy with their chances to win a championship. I'm sorry I. Noticed who's been through on his life Zambia fees the do your head butting dudes. That's crazy thing. Yeah I mean he's not like it at least it's not as bad as well. Maybe it is draymond green got one game for hitting somebody in the nuts. During the NBA Finals I think that's the way that the NBA announced it as well. I think that's how Adam silver came out announced that suspension. Kicked him in the knuckle. DRAYMOND IS GONNA be out for game victim in the not? So I? Mean five in forever all. History. If you're going to do that if you are going to if any commissioner is gonNA, come out and say that Adam silver would be the one guy who could actually came out and said Yep very out kicked him the nuts that stuff.

Wagner I'm finding out nicknames about guys named bubble cheese. The NBA bubble is in full swing and the Lakers have their. Final Game Tomorrow Greg is subscribed to Gotham. Chopra's daily newsletter. You know he's got his company religion of Sport Gotham Chopra filmmaker directed the documentary about Kobe. Bryant called Muse he does work with Tom Brady Tom versus time. So his daily newsletter provide these kind life wisdom's things you can take from sports apply to your own life things. You can take from your favorite sports movies and he went up something today from Hoosiers Gene Hackman. My Dad's favorite actor of course, the head coach in that film who reminds his team that You don't have to feel bad or surpress or downplay what it is. You do well, what it is you do great. So in Gotham GMS newsletter that I get every morning sent to my email address. It was entitled Coaches Law and here's the quote. No matter what you're doing people will call you crazy. Who Cares make a point today to trust yourself right now, grab a piece of paper and write down a trait that you really value like honesty clarity selflessness put that attribute into action all day today no matter what anybody else says. So think about that. What is it that you do? Really well, what is it that you're proud of what is it? That is a trait that you can say definitively that describes you as a person. Now it's apply that's The Los Angeles Lakers basketball team as they embark on this unusual postseason this bubble that we don't really know how their number one seed is going to give him an advantage. We don't really know how the playoffs they're gonNA feel like playoff basketball you can't even flip the switch if you don't know where the switch is. So how can we take coaches law from hoosiers from Gotham Chopra's newsletter and apply to this Los Angeles? Lakers, basketball team. What is something Greg That you think the Lakers do very well a value that they have they possess and they're able to act on as they head into the postseason. The greatest part of their strength if they don't use as much as maybe they should is the Lebron and Anthony, Davis pick and roll, which is pretty much unstoppable. Play that they use and don't use it as as much as they probably should. I'm so glad you mentioned that the game was getting tight down the stretch the other night under two minutes to go Lakers using this as an opportunity to figure out how they're going to close down the stretch. How are they going to get guy shot? How are they gonNA initiate offense with under a minute ago they ran high screen enroll frady and he went to the lane for kind of tip dunk layup thing and I looked over I said. That's unstoppable. That's incredible. They need to do that throughout the night solo brine likes to defer you like to involved. Hey, you dominate for three. And in the fourth quarter, you kind of fade away disappear. Listen Gregg listen to coach from hoosiers listen to Gothic shelters newsletter do what you do and be proud of it. So run that screening role with eighty that needs to be the backbone I think of their offense down the stretch and close games in the playoffs everything starts out of that because Lebron's can kick the ball they can swing the ball coups, get shots who's become an excellent cutter he moves very well without the basketball. So you're right ad and Lebron can get that two men action going. Boom that's what's going to set them off. So I don't know I take little wisdom some sports at try to apply to my everyday life try to see how we can apply to what we're talking about here on the show, and it's so true in a day where we celebrate false humility. We celebrate guys say all I. Just wanted to get my teammates involved make the right basketball play and I come out here and I play one game at a time and work really on bar now stop. Stand in your own true stand in your own conviction. Dame. Willer I'm out here I'm the best I'M GONNA go out there and send you home. He has that model mentality Kobe Kobe gave him the coast sign in their first matchup back in two thousand twelve or whenever it was two, thousand twelve. I. I WANNA see the Lakers own their strengths listen they struggle with the bench units Nice staff bubble cheese in your cabinets. Nice to have jr back in the NBA. It's nice to have twelve in their block shod or get a rebound become a is a speed honest. If anything we saw the other night, the only way that seem as a shot as those dudes Greg that you mentioned are the best to on the planet they have to be the best to players on the planet and the Kyle Kuzina to be pretty damn good. Otherwise this ain't happening it doesn't matter. Damian Lillard goes for twenty, forty or seventy. It's really the Lakers are playing against themselves I think at this point and to to to revisit the inspiration from gothic newsletter religion is sports own what makes them so special on the fact that they have those two dudes. Yeah I mean what we've been talking about throughout the show to is that those two dudes are just incredible but not one of them will be on the floor at all times. You don't ever have you can stagger their next whatever they do. They're going to play a ton of time together. But for the most part, one of them will always be on the floor and that's why when cal Kuzina comes and is playing like he did against. DENVER. Then it really eases off a lot of attention but there's more to that bench unit and I think that you're selling the bench unit just a little bit short here because you have guys like dion waiters who look is kind. Of Up and down Butts, he's the only one the only one on that on that bench unit that can break down any defender and get to the basket. There's nobody else that can do it, and so that's a huge thing to have on your second team and then Alex. Caruso is the other guy and no matter what it's not in the box score. You don't see what else Caruso does but every game looking at right now he's plus twenty one he was plus twenty one in his twenty minutes against Denver and that's a regular thing for him every time he's on the floor good things are happening and that's part of your bench unit. Don't don't disagree with what you're saying. You do hold your breath. When you see dion waiters put the ball on the ground. You do you seem drive you time found you you're holding your breath. But crusoes the guy at the gym who all of a sudden you look. He's like wait a minute. He hasn't gone off the court all day. He's his teams won four games in a row. But if again to my point, that's all nice. Great to have a little lift from dion great to have Caruso playing within himself. But that is not the formula that is not what needs to happen for the championship. If Lebron truly are that special can be the two best players in the planet that can over overload you can overlook dion waiters struggling or Caruso getting burnt Jamal me or whatever it is. So I think ultimately that is that's it. That's the ticket a sit. Well of course and I, totally agree with you this team begins and ends with two names Lebron James Anthony Davis, if they're not playing well, they're not going to win games if they are playing well, they will win games. Lebron needs to be the guy that he was in the regular season averaging almost a triple double or getting close to a triple double every single game. Yeah, I'm so excited for next week man I'm excited for the new lineup perfect timing for us to get into all this stuff next week. I. Hope the Blazers get in for so many reasons so many reasons. But I also have this Oregon story that I thought was pretty cool. We could end on this greg the last blockbuster in America exists in Bend Oregon and you can spend the night there. There's an AIRBNB that's a blockbuster in Oregon and it's all tricked out with movies and a sofa bed and you probably have to pay. Eight dollars for popcorn still with the idea of sleeping. Your blockbuster guy growing up. By Friday night I was. I had a blockbuster card I was there all the time? Absolutely but like when you go in there are do you have three wind everything or is it all DVD's does this work? Yeah. I don't WanNa go to a blockbuster that's DVD's. airbnb to all VHS tapes to be honest and fifty copies of Independence Day. Right to be kind rewind all over the place to. That's a good movie. I found a VHS, the other day of cocktail, and my dad's quote it on the box for saying totally entertaining and the Lord. The I did my dad's sitting down and watching cocktail and being like was pretty good. Is kind of strange to me I. Don't know why I think the fact that your data same totally in anything that's pretty entertaining to me. Eighties you know. Tell leader canings totally. Rips. Cocktail was very entertaining movie because of what he was doing with Tom Cruise was doing back there with those bottles that was impressive I don't care who you are. Right. Not to say states. John, stunts, he goes his space. He's on the world's tallest building. Dubai and HE MAKES GIN MARTINIS and throws it over his head. Is Awesome I'm on this exchange view let it rip on the sex, some of my buddies who lived at Austin and it's McConnell Hey tex chain of let it rip right because you ever want inspiration in your life just Google Matthew mcconaughey Texas coaching speech, and he goes down there and gives a speech to the team and I'm telling you if you're if you're going through with this cove stuff, you want to run through a wall and attack life enthusiasm after watching coach. But they send me this text. It says the big twelve planning to play football in the fall. Today because it's so doom and gloom of all the football cancellations on the college level. But when you watch hard knocks and you see McVeigh Getting swabbed up, Kovic, you say to yourself, I don't think we should be doing this to kids and making them get tested and playing all these things so. What do we? What do we do with the big twelve now saying that they're going to play but the PAC twelve sitting, they're not gonNA play Mask Greg. It's a complete mess now and think about one of the biggest hotspots in all of the United States is in Texas. How many of those I don't know the exact number but so many of those teams that are. In the big twelve as actually ten teams in the big twelve are in Texas. A. It's just nonsense to me and if you're having other power five conferences big ten PAC twelve both saying that they're out this year, it's gotta be united. It's gotta be everybody doing the same thing and then playing a season while the rest of other teams are not is insane to me. I. Heard on the morning show earlier that that you know Travis. DEMARCO we're talking about well. If the PAC twelve in the big ten, don't play besides Ohio state there's no team it's really competing for a national championship. So if we still get Alabama and Oklahoma and the big twelve schools in the SEC, schools that are playing for the national championship then I guess it's still okay but no, you have to be united all the top players just put out a thing. That said we are united that lasts forty eight hours right? If they're united then that means that them together are united and if one goes down the all they all go down. So if UCLA AND USC and everybody in the PAC, twelve and Michigan and Ohio state and everybody in the big the big tanner out that means that every other player out if they're united so. Baylor. Athletic Director Mack Roads told a local radio station in Texas that the League was to hold the votes the big twelve the results would be really really close all good down in Baylor, which has such a great reputation for really understanding how to put on college athletics. They're they're in the middle of this thing making decisions that that's comforting. Okay. So now you have let's Say. It's GonNa. Be Really really close and there's ten teams you're looking at four and six one way or the other most likely that means that there's at least four teams that are saying we don't WanNa play sports this year I want to put our kids at risk here. Oh, wait wait. We got six teams that want to so sorry, you guys like your kids at risk. They're treating this like la fitness when I played three pickup games in a row tired and I'm worried that might roll my ankle and they're like come on guys. We need one more. We only have nine on. The don't go don't go. Yeah. We need you. We need you guys Dr Copper told me if I do this on my flits Guffaw. One more game. This is what they're doing with children. Yeah and that's what the people still are get. They're young adults and there are adults because they're eighteen or some most of them are around eighteen or older. But the fact of the matter is that we don't know what the long term effects are and putting kids that are not getting paid I. Understand that you get a scholarship and most but not all of those kids are getting a full ride scholarship to play football. So if I understand that most of them get that. Scholarship to go to school, but they're not getting paid. These professional athletes are getting paid and they are not. You can't put these kids at risk for free. Especially when a lot of those kids aren't even going to class anyway because you're not allowed to be in a classroom engagement in the classroom, engage them in safe small group workouts keep them in top physical. Health and that's what this should be all about keeping like these these kids safe. If four schools out of the ten or like this doesn't work for us for logistics costs parents whatever may be we gotta think big picture we had rich on the show earlier he's talking about how athletes are some of the most dynamic business minds that he knows will. It's not. Suppress these young college athletes that were keeping on the sidelines. Let's find other ways for them to continue to excel in life you and I are big fans of the pack twelve. We love the fact that Ucla's going out to the Rose Bowl eight times a Saturday. But guess what now's not the time for that. So let's find some other ways to support those. Businesses in the community find some additional ways to support those athletes were training to to get to the next level. Let's be innovative. This is what America was founded on innovation and trying to make a better life. So let's continue to push forward by the saying well, we're GONNA keep on playing football I'm we've got the Red River game of Oklahoma versus Texas so. Delusional. And an incredibly dangerous I think you and I are on the same page of that. Yeah, we're absolutely on the same page and I think it's just nonsense that so many schools the SEC. The big twelve. They're all having problems and they're all just distinct at all. No no no everything's fine. We're just GONNA. Put our kids out there. It's to me is just it's it's Asinine and I'm not a fan. Mostly, theme Greg Number One see we've been great all year. We've got it all locked up Damian Lillard is in the first round. What could possibly go wrong this is fine. We'll be okay.

You allow us to do it. We love let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at podcast network now back to the life of Marilyn Monroe June First Nineteen Twenty Six Los Angeles County Hospital Maryland is born Norma Jeane Mortenson actually the name given to her by the second husband of her mother Gladys Baker. The truth is her. Mom's second husband was not her father. Norma Jean or Maryland never knew who her father was. No one ever did although years later when when she was famous she got people going by joking. That screen legend Clark Gable was her biological father and that has its own strange connection to Maryland's later life and her fame. But we'll be getting to that in any case. Although Norma Jean's mom took her second husband Morton's name he was not the biological father and eventually history just put gladys his first married name onto her third child. Norma Jean that's why before she became a star Maryland is more commonly remembered as being. Norma Jeane Baker. Wow Norma Norma Jean has just been born in already. It's hard to keep track of. Who was responsible for her? You're so right. This is the kind of uncertainty and fear that by all reports haunted her for her entire life life just right after she was born. Her mother's mental illness proved too much for her and Gladys Baker immediately. Had to see about getting Norma Jean into a foster home but what is really powerful. Is that even though. Her mother was mentally ill and unfit to raise a daughter. When Norma Jean changed her name to Marilyn? She chose as her last name. Her mother's maiden the name Monroe and that speaks volumes about the love. Maryland must have had for her mother. Even though for years Maryland would often claim an interviews that her mother was dead. Well if if you think about it gladys knew that as a parent with a mental instability. She needed to place her newborn daughter into foster care. She was in her own way looking out for Norma Jean Norma. Jean's first set of foster parents were Albert and Ida Bolander and Evangelical Christian couple in the California town of Hawthorn by all accounts they adored norma and even even allowed gladys to live with them and commute to work in Los Angeles. In fact many years later after their young charge became famous. Ida Bolander composed a letter to Maryland's that's half sister which she said it is almost broken. My heart to read the stories that have been written about early childhood when Hanno personally they are so untrue. I find that really touching it. Sounds like Norma Jean's first set of foster parents really wanted the world to know that they did right by her. Let's go back a second. You said Ida Bolander underwrote a note to Maryland's half sister Marilyn had a half sister yes and half brother to though he died young before Maryland ever met him. Did I miss something. Well yes so did Marilyn. She never knew she had half siblings until she was an adolescent and never met her half sister Bernice until she was an adult. Oh so these must have been kids that Norma Jean's or Maryland's mother had with Mr Baker that's right gladys married the twenty four year old guy when she was only fifteen and when they divorced he took the kids awesome left Gladys must have stayed pretty quiet about it so weird too because years later Maryland would find herself in a similar situation with a man minus the kids right. We'll get to that but for now everything is going along. Pretty okay for a while with gladys those struggling with their issues living with the bolander and helping to raise little norma Jean but when gladys has worked as a negative cutter for the movie industry took up more of her time she moved away and only visited on weekends. The bolander is wanted to adopt. Norma Jean and but by the summer of nineteen thirty three Gladys said. She felt like she had gotten her mental illness under control. And so we're daughter moved with her to a small house in Hollywood and it was during this time when Norma Jean was just seven that things began to spin out of control gladys was not as on the men that she had hoped she could be and she she soon had a nervous breakdown and was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Eventually poor gladys spent the rest of her life institutions in hardly ever had any contact with the daughter daughter who would become world famous. But Norma Jean Baker was not world famous as Marilyn Monroe yet in fact she was about to enter the most damaging time of her life the time that may have been the main contributor to the depression. She struggled with for her entire career. Norma Jean was taken in by George. Maude Atkinson the husband and wife borders. I live with her and her mother for the year and a half she lived with them. She was reportedly molested by George Atkinson. who should be noted that Marilyn Monroe's many biographers differ as to the the author of these claims but there is no doubt that Maryland was a troubled soul condition that came to its boiling point on the night that she died which we will soon explore floor meantime little norma? Jean was bounced around through several different foster homes situations grace goddard along time friend of Gladys came in to oversee Norma Jean's transfer for to the Los Angeles orphans home in Hollywood in nineteen thirty five. Although most accounts do not have Norma Jean as being abused in the orphanage it was still a place of great pain for for her she felt unwanted and cast aside in every area of are still so young life. She was already a shy girl. But now believe it or not the woman who would become become. Marilyn Monroe was becoming painfully shy and withdrawn even developing stutter-. For a time Norma. Jean was taken out of the orphanage to live with her mother's friend. Grace Goddard uttered but that came to a terrible end when grace's husband also reportedly molested Norma Jean but there was always the movies in the nineteen sixty two interview with life magazine Maryland said when I was five. I think that's when I started wanting to be an actress I loved to play. I didn't like the world around me because it was kind of grim but I love to play house who like you could make your own boundaries. When I heard that this was acting I said that's what I want to be? Some of my foster families used to send me to the movies to get me out of the House and there. I'd sit all day away into into the night up in front there with the screen so big a little kid on loan and I loved it for a a brief time. Norma Jean's life return to a kind of normalcy. When Grace Goddard's kindly aunt Anna Atkinson lower agreed to let Norma? Jean live with her for two years. Norma Jean attended Emerson Junior High School in Los Angeles and even wrote for the school newspaper articles. Were still around. Can you imagine there was is a lot going on inside that young mind soon. After though on Anna's health began to fail and Norma Jean was pushed back into the lives of her official legal guardians. Grace Goddard uttered and her possibly abusive husband then to make matters worse. Said husband gets reassigned in his work. And the Gods are headed to West Virginia except California L. A. -fornia law at the time would not let them take Norma Jean with them so it's beginning to look like it'll be back to the orphanage for her Norma Jeane Baker is really feeling squeeze now so she take some action that put her in a remarkably similar situation to that of her mother some years back at sixteen to make sure she does not have to move to West Virginia with her foster parents parents. She drops out of Van Nuys High School in Mary's a neighbor. The twenty one year old factory worker. Jim Dougherty Norma. Jean immediately takes on the uncomfortable role of teenage housewife and mother. It's the time of World War Two by now and in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. Jim Ships out to the Pacific. He would remain there for two years years while he's Gone Norma. Jean moves in with Jim's parents and takes a job at the Radio Plane Munitions Factory. She wanted to help the war effort and perhaps more importantly early. She wanted to start earning her own living. The mayor's did make me sad but it didn't make me happy either. My husband and I hardly spoke to each other. This wasn't because we were angry. We had nothing to say. I was dying of boredom for his part years later as an old man Jim. I'm dorothy reflected on his brief marriage. The world's greatest screen siren I never knew Marilyn Monroe. I don't claim to have any insights to her. Our to this day I knew and loved. No medine mind you. Dorothy was not happy when Norma Jean wanted a divorce and moved out of his parents house he was against her having a modeling career late. A modeling career. Yes Norma Jean's life was about to take a significant turn and now listeners. Take note before before you think. Working in a munitions factory would be the last place in the world where one's future could suddenly turn around remember. That's how it happened for. Norma Jean Pretty much everything that came after it was all part art of how Marilyn Monroe became Marilyn Monroe and it was indeed because she worked in a munitions factory during World War. Two a certain somebody buddy named Ronald Reagan was the commanding officer of the US. Army and Air Force's first motion picture unit. Reagan said photographer. David Conifer out to the munitions factory take pictures of female workers to boost wartime morale convert took several now famous photographs of Norma. Jean and even though they weren't used by the motion picture unit. The experience lit a fire. Norma Jean's ambitions and she left her marriage to pursue a modeling career doing more advertisement and Pinup work for gave it conifer and his circle of photographer friends. She signed a contract with the Blue Book. Modeling Agency in Nineteen forty five and dyed her hair blonde to get more work. According to the agency's owner she was one of the most serious and hardworking models. They employed by your later. She appeared on thirty three magazine covers and and it was time to see if the movies would come calling. They did but more with a whimper than a bang it first at Twentieth Century Fox producer. Ben Lyon persuaded a Lukewarm Daryl Daryl zanuck to sign a new actress now named her now and forever Marilyn Monroe the early signs of Marilyn's dedication to her craft and to her own success can can be found right from the start she barely got any acting roles only tiny parts in minor productions but through it all. She hung around film sets to see how they did things and she constantly Salaam took acting classes to hone her craft. The studio also paid for her to study in their own acting lab which was patterned after the techniques of the group theatre Marilyn Monroe was always dedicated to the enrichment of her acting despite becoming known as the archetypal dumb blonde this seriousness of approach to a profession. As part of what is forgotten the history that is sometimes eager to keep her in the dumb blonde role. I think that's why it's important to briefly. Say the Group theatre which had such an influence on Maryland's life. Yes it was a New York collective founded by Lee Strasburg among others dedicated to a grounded and naturalistic style of acting and self expression. I knew how third rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent as if it were cheap clothes. I was wearing inside but my God how he wanted to learn to change to improve. I finally made up my mind. I wanted to be an actress and I was not going to let my lack of confidence ruin my chances working. The actors lab was my first taste of what re electing a real trauma could be and I was hooked. Our story will continue in a moment. After a brief message judge and now back to our story it was perhaps this belief in the process of acting that kept Maryland going. Even when her contract at Fox was not renewed she was also an excellent self promoter. Getting to know gossip columnists and making sure flirt with the most influential people in Tinseltown when she had an affair with another film executive the Joseph Schenck Schenk persuaded his friend. Harry Cohn at Columbia Studios to sign Maryland and while this next milestone still did not yield any significant acting role. It did Cement Maryland's image as we now know it at Columbia. They shifted her from the girl next door. Parts Fox was casting. Her in to kind of bombshell along the lines of Rita Hayworth worth her hairline was raised through electrolysis or hair was bleached to a lighter platinum blonde and the dialogue coach. She was having an affair with paid to have her slight. overbites corrected directed still no big break for Maryland. Then she became a protege of a big shot. The William Morris Agency Johnny hide the two began an affair but Maryland refused his marriage. Proposals Hide also paid for a silicone prosthesis to be placed in Maryland jaw completing her. Look that is kind of sad to hear how made over Maryland was but at that point I suspect she had her eyes on the prize of fame. And nothing's going to stop her but it was pretty clear she couldn't have done it without Johnny Hyde. Here's what one Hollywood insider said about the collaboration. At the time only one man was responsible for making Harris. Dr That man was Johnny Hyde. He had faith in her when she was a starlet. And the damned unimportant starlet. When you Johnny in your corner you had a pipeline to the guys that really count in Hollywood and it was in nineteen fifty that all that that compromise and hard work began to pay off for Maryland? CONSIDERING ACIDIC in the asphalt jungle heist film from noted director. John Huston Maryland had only a few minutes of screen time but she got noticed and then in all about about eve. Maryland held her own among stars. Like bette Davis and George Sanders. I don't WANNA make trouble. I want you to drink. Aw thank you well done. And while these breakout roles did put Maryland in the blonde bombshell mold that she spent most career in they did allow her to find footing in the career. She had been dreaming of since play-acting at five years old. I'm trying to find myself as a person. Sometimes that's it's not easy to do. Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves. But it is something I must do the best way for me to find myself as a person is to prove to myself that I am an actress and make no mistake. Maryland had arrived in nineteen fifty one. Collier's magazine republish. The world's first full length profile of Maryland she was presented at the Twenty Third Academy Awards. The Los Angeles Daily News called her one of the brightest up and coming actresses. This is on the scene Fan mail poured in during the Korean War. The army newspaper Stars and Stripes declared her miss cheesecake of one thousand nine hundred fifty one. WHO's not idle title in the Romance Department? Either most high-profile Romance during this period was with director Elia Kazan. Who would go onto make on the waterfront with Marlon Brando? She also dated rebel without a cause. Director Nicholas Ray along with actors. Peter Lawford and you'll Brenner but all the success was buffered by a terrible loss. Just just after. He signed a brand new contract for Maryland with twentieth century. Fox The man who allowed it all to happen. Johnny Hyde died suddenly of heart attack Marilyn. Lynn was devastated. She wrote in her diary. My greatest trend was buried. I was without his importance to fight for me without his love to guide me. I cried for night after night. Sometimes I felt wrong. Not marrying him and giving him what he wanted but I also knew it would be wrong to marry a man you didn't we love. I never stopped regretting the loss of Johnny Hyde. But as we know life closes one door and opens another and for Maryland. That new door was the acting teacher. Michael Chekhov acting became important. It became an art that belong to the actor not to the director or producer or the man and whose money had bought the studio. It was an art that transformed you into somebody else that increased your life and mind. I'd always loved acting and tried tried hard to learn it but with Michael Chekhov acting became more than a profession to me. It became a sort of religion. chekhov todd actors to access subconscious through various external and movement techniques Maryland continued to improve her acting chops and sought out more challenging roles. Such as a fish cannery worker clash by night in one thousand nine hundred eighty two about which the Hollywood reporter said. She deserves starring status with her. Excellent interpretation generally prepared by working for time in a real fish fish cannery in Monterey California. Then there was. Don't bother to knock a role that Daryl Zanuck specifically gave her to see if she could pull off something much more dramatic but the role of psychologically disturbed babysitter was not as well received by the critics causing the setback in Maryland's deeper ambitions. None of this stopped her from making headlines. I by telling a gossip columnist that she was not fond of wearing underwear then came scandal that anyone else might not have recovered from in nineteen fifties America. The date line Hollywood movie Vixen Marilyn Monroe embroiled in nude pictures of Oh that could destroy her career. It was discovered that during her early modeling days Maryland had posed naked for pinup calendar and the news media pounced on it but in a stunning reversal that speaks volumes about how Maryland's vulnerable side was so embraced embraced by her fans. The movie studios spun the story to have Maryland talk openly about how the new shots were done during a difficult time in her life when she was in dire financial financial straights it worked not only was the outpouring of public sympathy enormous. But the publicity increase audience interest in seeing Maryland's movies as if all that wasn't enough a very big change in her private life was the next thing to grab. Headlines was when Maryland began a relationship with a man she had been introduced to through mutual friends. Baseball baseball legend Joe Dimaggio Monroe and Dimaggio were married in January of Nineteen fifty four and by October Tober of that same year they had divorced the two factors where their fame and Maggio's jealousy. Let's start with fame. Joe Di Maggio. Arguably the most famous sports figure of his day had retired from baseball when he met Maryland he already had his years of fame just as Maryland was beginning to get the first taste of hers in a way to Maggi. Ozzy was over it just as Maryland was being seduced by it. There's a great story about how right. In the middle of their honeymoon. Maryland accepted an invitation to entertain the troops overseas season Korea. She was so bowled over by the reception that she called her husband on a fame induced high. Joe It's wonderful. shoups love me. Aw You have never heard such jeering. Yes yes darling I have and that was really it. Joe had been down that road and he was not on the same path his wife but we should make sure and say that he did not present Maryland her fame. He knew what it was because he had it himself and he was okay with combines what he was not okay with was the image that her fame required of her She Sang of Love Justice. She lived for La like Laura lie flaunting her charms as she lured men on and on to their eternal destruction and in her own husband was no exception. That's a clip from the trailer for Niagara a scandalous. Love Story starring Maryland that had church groups up in arms. We're talking scenes in which Maryland was wearing only sheet or a towel absolutely shocking to audiences at that time and a thirty second long shot of her butt and her swaying hips Screen Diva Joan. Crawford said Maryland's behavior was unbecoming of an actress and a lady and this is the kind of thing it was very hard for Joe. Dimaggio to live with there came a string of other successes for Maryland who is now listed. Among the top ten moneymaking stars in Hollywood and Fox studios called her their greatest asset apart from cinemascope the new wide screen process. That was taking movie screens by storm. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. How to marry a millionaire river of no return and in the middle of these movie blockbusters busters playboy publishes nude calendar shots? What a turnaround I? She gets public sympathy for being forced to pose nude before she was famous. Now she can do no wrong by being nude when she is famous now. The single word Maryland said all anybody needed to say I knew belong to the public and to the world not that because I was talented or even beautiful but because I had never belonged to anyone or anything else finally it was the seven year itch. What did Joe Dimaggio in? This was the billy wilder comedy that contained one of the most iconic shots in movie history. In which the air from the subway grate blows Maryland skirt up around her legs. Director Wilder knew the shot would cause a sensation so he staged the scene in public for fans to come and watch the filming drew crowds. How's Bhai the hundreds and it became the image most associated with Marilyn Monroe it put the final nail into the coffin of the Monroe? Di Maggio marriage just the same the to remain friends forever until Maryland's death and some said Joe was even thinking of proposing marriage to her again shortly before she died he took care of all the funeral. Arrangements made sure it was a low key private ceremony and had flowers sent to her grave for twenty years after she passed away. Marilyn's persona may have been too much. That's for Joe Dimaggio. But it was clear that he respected her talent and her drive to stay on top and she was becoming fierce in her negotiating. Knowing the power her image had after a feud with twentieth century Fox caused her contract to end she came back strong and renegotiated it getting one hundred thousand dollars to appear in the seven year itch which this was followed by Maryland. Starting her own production company and again battling Fox studios to get out of the contract. She had just renegotiated in the end knowing wing. She could not make movies without the studios money and that the studios needed her for her box office. Potential Fox and Maryland came to an agreement to work together in nineteen fifty five time called her a shrewd businesswoman and look magazine declared she would stand as an example of the individual against the heard for years to come during the took. Those negotiations to resolve Maryland again. Devoted herself to her craft taking classes. At New York's legendary actors studio to escape public attention. She you took private lessons with Lee Strasberg and his wife Paula. At their home. This was the start of a close friendship between the Strasberg's Maryland that would last until her untimely death. Another protege of Strasberg's was Marlon Brando. which led to a brief romance between Brando and Monroe but the next significant romance that would blossom into marriage was is just around the corner? When Maryland was introduced to playwright Arthur Miller known for his iconic drama about the dark side of the American dream death of a salesman Arthur Miller was arguably to American theater? What Joe Dimaggio was to American baseball? So what you like about Maryland. She was drawn to the best and they to her. Now there were lots of reasons why Twentieth Century Fox did not want Maryland to be hanging around with Arthur Miller chief among them being that this was during the McCarthy era when people in show business this were being investigated for being communists and Arthur Miller was on the top of that list of suspects then when Maryland converted to Judaism for the marriage Egypt dipped banned all her films and the studio felt. The whole thing was mismatched with Marilyn thought of as the classic Dumb Blonde and Miller Thought of as the classic intellectual when and variety covered the wedding their headline. Was Egghead weds hourglass. He can't win with the media. Can you in an interview late in her career Maryland said sometimes sometimes I feel my whole life has been one big rejection. She was also quoted as saying Arthur. Miller wouldn't have married me if I had been nothing but a dumb blonde. And Arthur Miller Miller had this to say about Maryland. She was a whirling light to me. Then all paradox and enticing mystery street tough one moment then lifted by lyrical and poetic sensitivity. She was at this point in capable of condemning or even of of judging people who had damaged her what she wanted most was not to judge but to win recognition from cruel profession and from men blinded to her humanity by her perfect beauty. There are many theories about why the couple eventually split but it is well known that Maryland had had to devastating miscarriages during their marriage and that her depression and drug use was increasing. She was also reportedly pretty unhappy with the role. Arthur Miller wrote for her in her our final film the misfits which she felt reflected. They're growing distance from one another and put her character in a bad light. Plus after they divorced Miller immediately the remarried and had a child which must have crushed Maryland after her endometriosis which she suffered with her entire life caused so many of her problems but there were many ways in which Maryland had become her own worst enemy. This is sadly true. Not only was she becoming addicted to barbiturates but long before drugs were becoming an issue for her. She had for some time been chronically late to a movie sets and this was becoming a real problem for the studio aim invariably late for appointments sometimes as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me later too strong and too pleasing drugs sex probably both of these were the strong doc in pleasing things making Maryland late but at the height of her career. She was probably just two biggest star for it to matter. Bus Stop got her a Golden Globe nomination for best actress us the famous New York Times film critic Bosley crowther declared hold onto your chairs. Everybody and get set for a rattling surprise. Marilyn Monroe has finally finally proved herself an actress. She then starred alongside Laurence Olivier in the prince and the showgirl but she found Olivier sexist and condescending and used her distaste for him as an excuse to be even more late and unprepared slowly increasing her reputation as a liability when she teamed up again with Director. Billy wilder older things. Were really getting out of hand. syncopated played that Derby Fast Music Jazz. I I guess some like it hot. I personally prefer classical music. As a matter of fact I spent three years at the Royal Conservatory Amusing. We'll return to our the story in just a moment now. Back to the story some like it hot was a big hit but Maryland's behavior onset was becoming unconscionable not only was she chronically late but she would constantly forget her lines and demand dozens of retakes prompting her co Star. Tony Curtis to quip that. Kissing her became became like kissing Hitler mice but in the end nobody could argue with the film's runaway. Success or Maryland. Gift for comedy. She won the Golden Globe for Best Actress soon after she moved back to California after six years on the East Coast and had a brief relationship with Frank Sinatra shortly thereafter came. What would be Maryland's final? Final film the misfits which as we've already established had been written by her soon to be ex husband Arthur Miller but the real reason we're coming back to the misfits in which she also starred with Montgomery clift. Is that there was another screen. Legend sharing top billing on the film and one with particular significance to Maryland. That's right in an ironic mctwist an example of a life coming full circle. Maryland's Co Star in the misfits was none other than the man she had long playfully. Claimed may have been her biological father. Mr Clark Gable. Though the misfits was her last film. There was one in the works just before she died. And it may simply be a coincidence. But the title of Maryland's Island's last uncompleted movie project was something's got to give that title was indeed a fitting description of what would be the final few months of her life. The movie was is produced by Maryland's company and Crooner Dean Martin was set to Co Star. Unfortunately Maryland became ill with a sinus infection and could barely work on the project in. Its first six six weeks. It may have been that our long history of flaking and forgetting her lines was catching up to her. But the studio used Maryland's illness as ammunition to go after her. Even even though there was documented evidence from medical sources advising Fox to halt production. The studio even went so far as to declare to the public that Maryland was faking it. A case said the girl who cried wolf too often perhaps but just the same. They were on the wrong this time. This industry should behave like a mother whose child has just run out in front of a car but instead of clasping the child to them they start punishing the child. Like you don't dare get a cold. How dare you get a cold? I mean the executives. This can get colds and stay home forever and phone it in but how dare you the actor get a cold or virus. You don't no one feels worse than the one who sick. I sometimes wish Gee I wish they had to act comedy with the temperature and a virus infection while her battles with the studio continued Maryland. I did one other thing. The studio had advised her not to do. Aw Wearing a skintight beige dress. That made her look almost naked. Maryland showed up at New York's Madison Square Garden on May Nineteenth nineteen sixty two to join the birthday celebration for John. F. Kennedy with whom. She was rumored to be having an affair. Supposedly the president's brother Bobby too. Although by most accounts are relationships the Kennedys could have been rumors. She was connected to the family though through her old boyfriend. Peter Lawford who had gone on to marry Jack and Bobby Sister Patricia or Pat Kennedy Kennedy. In any case Marilyn's antics were driving the studio crazy. Finally by June seventh after calling in sick a few more times Maryland was fired by Fox ensued for three quarters of a million dollars in damages. The studio publicly blamed Monroe for having to shut down. Something's got to give and even started to spread negative publicity. Listen about her including that. She was mentally disturbed. They'll fox in Maryland eventually made nice and even contracted Maryland to appear in another picture. They're mean spirited heritage character assassination of her may have contained a chilling grain of truth on August fifth nineteen sixty two Marilyn. Monroe was found dead in the bedroom of her home in Brentwood empty bottles of the pill. She used battle her depression where scattered around the room. Marilyn Monroe kills self read the now infamous newspaper for headline in the New York Mirror. Everything pretty much points to this inevitable conclusion but apparently there was enough mystery occurring on the night of her death to fuel of you you skeptics and probable crackpots. A timeline of what happened prior to her death has been established. She died on a Sunday on that Saturday August fourth. She she had taken some meetings even signed for several deliveries her housekeeper. Eunice Murray was there along with. Maryland's publicist who sent away at four thirty in the afternoon when Maryland therapist. Dr Ralph Greene arrived for a session with Maryland. After the session Dr Greenspan asked that Eunice Murray stay the night to keep Maryland Company at around around seven PM Maryland received a call from Joe Di Maggio Junior. Her ex-husband son and Maryland had stayed close friends. Since the divorce and Joe Junior wanted to share share some news with Maryland about his breaking up with his girlfriend. Joe Junior later told reporters that he found nothing odd in her manner. When speaking to her that evening but Maryland's old boyfriend and the actor? Peter Lawford who as we mentioned earlier was married to the Kennedy's sister. Pat called at around eight PM to invite Maryland to a party and he told a different story story. LAWFORD said he was worried and that Maryland sounded like she was under the influence of drugs. The conversation ended with what amounts to Maryland's last words. Say Goodbye to Pat. Say Goodbye to the president and say goodbye to yourself because you're nice guy. LAWFORD tried to reach Maryland again but he couldn't get through. He called his agent. Who tried to get through to Dr Green but couldn't but then got through to Maryland's lawyer? Dr Who got through to the housekeeper Eunice Murray assured everyone that Maryland was okay but Eunice Murray awakened suddenly at three. Am that Sunday and had a feeling something something was wrong. She saw the light on Maryland's room but the door was locked. She peeked through the window from outside and saw Marilyn. She was lying face down on her bed head covered in a sheet and clutching the phone. Receiver she called Dr Greenstone immediately and he broke a window to enter Maryland's room where he discovered she was I did it is difficult to say. How conspiracy theories get started but there are a lot of them swirling around about the death breath of Marilyn Monroe? Interestingly these conspiracy theories did not gain prominence in the time immediately after her death but have blossomed in the ensuing years. The most prominent prominent and enduring theory is that Marilyn's ongoing affair with Robert Kennedy was causing great problems for the then attorney general and that when she threatened to expose him he arranged ensure murder. This theory was initially floated in nineteen sixty four by a guy named Frank. AAC Appel whom together with Los Angeles Police Sergeant. Jack Clemens was the I officer. At the scene of Marilyn's death but Cappella and clemens claims have been widely critiqued and it has been pointed out that clemens suddenly added new details to his testimony ONI years after the discovery of Maryland's body in which he said when he came upon the scene housekeeper was actually washing. Maryland's sheets Frank Capelle. It was also discovered discovered. Head a virulent anticommunist agenda and published his pamphlet about the conspiracy in nineteen sixty four in hopes of furthering his cause over the years though all these theories have persisted. Fueled largely by the new resurgence of interest in the case through. Norman Mailer Nineteen seventy-three biography of Marilyn in that book mailer again asserted that the affair with Robert Kennedy was the motive for the death only in his version either the FBI or the CIA handled the killing of Maryland with an eye to increasing pressure around the Kennedy family. Norman mailer himself recanted his statement. But still other books with more theories came out including the notion that union leader. Jimmy Hoffa had Maryland's place wiretapped and wanted to use any secrets she had about the Kennedys against the anti-crime Crusading Attorney General. Bobby Kennedy. It was also rumored that Maryland kept an infamous red diary in which she recorded secret political information she gained from being in relationships with the Kennedys. Things reached a peak in the one thousand nine hundred eighty S. When the controversial traversable biography goddess? The secret lives of Marilyn Monroe was published by author. Anthony Summers his theory involved. The missing time between when housekeeper or Eunice Murray claimed Maryland was okay and when she went to look in on her employer it became a what really happened. Breeding ground for conspiracy involving both Bobby Kennedy Kennedy and Peter Lawford in this incarnation Kennedy. LAWFORD were supposedly feeding Maryland's addiction in hopes of keeping her docile and preventing her from going public about her affair with bobby then again supposedly when she accidentally overdosed and died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. LAWFORD and the Kennedys with additional help L. from J. Edgar Hoover. FBI mind you brought the body back to the house and staged a suicide well. This was apparently because Robert Kennedy needed to get out of Los Angeles just before the death became public and he was linked to it. The only fact that can be pulled out of any of these wild theories is that Robert F Kennedy was apparently in Los Angeles us on the night before Maryland's death quite a lot to spin out of one piece of logistics. In fact because of all these books conspiracy theories the Marilyn Monroe case was reopened. We opened in nineteen eighty. Two and the findings of the inquest were again. That Maryland's death was a probable suicide. The corner statement read in part as follows us. Miss Monroe had suffered from psychiatric disturbance for a long time she experienced severe fears and frequent depressions. Mood changes were abrupt and unpredictable. Among symptoms of Disorganization Sleep disturbance was prominent for which she had been taking sedative drugs for many a years. She was thus familiar with and experienced in the use of sedative drugs and well aware of their dangers in our investigation and we have learned that Miss Monroe had often expressed wishes to give up to withdraw and even to die on more than one occasion in the past. She had made Edey suicide attempt using sedative drugs. On these occasions she had called for help and had been rescued. It is our opinion that the same pattern pattern was repeated on the evening of August fourth except for the rescue except for the rescue. What a heartbreaking truth route that was when a person so larger than life dies maybe? Sometimes it's too hard to face that they were human after all so we have to come up with our own reasons why it happened but but also when a person is popular Marilyn Monroe dies. She leaves behind her work and her legacy in fact in Maryland will she left a little money to that long lost half sister Bernice whom we talked about as we opened the show her mother's first daughter the one you're surprised to hear about Maryland clearly. Valued the importance of family. She also established a trust fund to cover the cost associated with the continuing care of her mother Gladys Baker as well as the care of the widow of Michael Chekhov her beloved acting teacher. She left twenty five percent of her state to a former psychiatrist asking that the money be distributed to further the work of other psychiatric groups and institutions that really reveals reveals about her feelings toward what her mother must have suffered and what Maryland suffered with herself really does she left. The remaining seventy five percent of our state to the actor studios does Lee Strasburg to be administered among her friends and colleagues and as Maryland put those to whom I am devoted there was a lot of love inside this very complicated complicated woman. Norma Jeane Baker whom we now will forever know as Marilyn Monroe and it may be that Maryland had no greater love than she did for the audiences who worshiped her. Let's give Maryland. The last word about the acting craft that meant so much to her and she negotiated the obstacle course of worldwide fame and notoriety. I've always felt toward the slightest seen even if all I had to do in a scene was just to come in and say hi that the people to get their money's worth and that this is an obligation of mine to give them the best you can get from me Thanks for listening.

"Saddam with a here on ESPN presented by progressive. Insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance. Line John Johnson. The third of the rams will join us here in a moment. Koran Butler has been rescheduled to eleven thirty makes you tune into the ESPN daily. Podcast with our friend.

Wherever you enjoy your podcasts so greg we were just talking before we get to John Johnson. The third I don't know if he's there or not but we were just talking about the the sixers ownership Laura. I didn't hear you there okay. Great thanks just so we were talking about the sixers ownership. If you didn't hear the last segment sixers owner. Josh Harris was the principal owner was going to cut salaries of full time employees including coaches. But anyone that starts it over fifty thousand dollars which I thought was crazy because if you make fifty thousand dollars and you have to give away. Give back ten thousand. That's a huge chunk of change. So that was his plan so he wanted to. Because of the pandemic he wanted to cut salaries of all full time employees making fifty thousand or more by twenty percent and woge put out a tweet as I mentioned earlier saying that other teams who may be considering what the sixers are doing are looking at the pr of it and going. Oh that might not be worth it. We don't want our net worth being out there at this point like that. That's just not good business. That's we went to break. We read that tweet right. Wards has just tweeted one minute ago seventy sixers ownership is planning to change course pulling back on salary reductions for Staff League sources tell. Espn shamed shamed them into doing it. Nicely done good good job loge and the Internet because the Internet did it do like it was just like come on man like what are you doing? You know they say. The Internet is undefeated for a reason. Because that's why the power of social media the power of it. It's just it's how the world works now and if you look bad on twitter you look bad. Yeah man like for real won't because what ends up happening is look I told you I don't think twitter is the end all be all only thirty percent of the country's on it over goofy stuff but this is the type of stuff that a news organization was going to pick up. You know what I'm saying like this is going to become news. And that's when twitter is a powerful thing when it becomes mainstream news. Not just something that happens in the silo of the thirteen percent of America. That's on twitter right. Yeah but the fact that is a matter is it worked this time for sure. The other owners had to have gone to them. Maybe it wasn't all on twitter. Maybe it was somebody actually calling them and they said you know what? This is a bad call. Yeah well here's the other tweet by woge and we'll talk to John Johnson. The third here in just a second of the Rams sixers ownership statement to ESPN after listening to our staff and players. It's clear it was the wrong decision we reversed and we'll be paying these employees their full salary. Of course you should. You're the Philadelphia Seventy sixers. You're worth your owners worth four billion dollars. You can't be cutting people's salaries by twenty percent when they for the people that make fifty grand in your on your staff and that we're building that's crazy so I'm glad that the whatever happened on twitter or them listening to their employees worked so good for them good for the people who who told them that they should stop doing such silliness. That people need to get paid right now. You know it's unprecedented times. Let's talk speaking of unprecedented times We were GonNA talk to John. Johnson the third. The rams got a new logo.

We're doing okay man. Same as you were all trying to get through this and get through it together. You know what I mean. It's obviously a little strange but this is the way I look at it. John People who are our grandparents or older age you know they were going to war to sacrifice for the world in the country and the betterment of the country. We're asked to be to stay home and occasionally we can go out for a jog. You know what I mean if you put it in that perspective. I think we'll be okay. You know absolutely man. That's a good way to put it now that I think about it. Let's stick together like you said and then you know you can get through this time so like you say.

It's a new buzz around the rams and we want to kick off the right way so I mean I hate to be a worldwide pandemic. But Hey that's what we do we're gonNA come together and leave no doubt about it and we thank you guys for doing that. John Johnson third joining us. Here safety for your Los Angeles. Rams you told me about the rebranding what do you think of? It grew on me. You know when you first see I. I feel like a lot of fans and a lot of people who don't understand what's behind the logo have a lot to say about it but I mean I like it It's bright. You WanNa start this thing off the right way We'RE FIGHTING FOR LA. So that's in the logo. I like it honestly. Everybody has different tastes. You know everyone has their own opinion but I think is is good. It's a good start and I think the uniform follower never going to be pretty dope too so just stay tuned if you if you got First opinions about just stay to okay so I'm curious about the uniform. Here's my deal. I don't love the just the one that has the L. A. With the RAM horned coming out. I do love the actual ram like the Animal Logo. That thing is bad ass all I all I would like is and I saw the. Nfl memes twitter account. Combine the two. And I'm like Yo now that's tight. You know what I'm saying so I'm kind of hoping that maybe our friend Kevin them off in the rams. Maybe there is a day that we can kind of combine both and maybe make it work because it does look tighter with that. I'm not up in arms about it. I don't love it but I mean I like the colors and I liked. I liked the Ram logo. I just wish we could have a combination of the two. You know what I mean. Yeah Absolutely I. I know exactly what you're talking about the NFL. I saw it it. Dan Look Pretty Dope. 'cause has lan the rams. And I I think when you think logos you think of the ramp or an eagle you know the mascot itself so you know i. It's it's a little tricky but hey maybe one day we can and I also wanted to win and those who call in and donate have a chance to win the new branded rams hat so call in like I said it could be any amount help but like maybe one day we can get there but hey I'm all in I'm Ram.

You can get a free rams hat the new one of the new hats if you donate call eight eight eight five zero four ninety four ninety one or go online united for La Dot org slash pandemic relief or you can text united for la two eight four four seven zero one five one eight one all right so let's talk football here for a little bit. Joe. There's a lot of guys not in your locker room anymore. You how do you? How do you feel about some of these things that are going on in your locker room? Yeah it's a it's a business and most of the guys on different too but It's a business. You know. Those guys wish him. Well you know. They're all land on their feet. They all have opportunity to go somewhere. Play and you know help their family so you can't be upset if it's bittersweet but You know you gotta understand. It's a business and you got to move forward. The show goes on. Have you talked to Sean or anyone about just kind of what to expect moving forward? I know that football is obviously secondary at the moment but I you know the League is obviously still moving forward free agency and the draft. It'll be different. But they're still moving forward with that. Have you had any conversations with Sean or or or anyone in the organization about what to expect? I guess coming in as far as the defense is concerned. Not really not with those who guys. I haven't been talking with our new defensive coordinator Brandon Staley. I love the deaf already okay. He's he's a he's a straight goon like we'll get a lot of things done a defense but as a personnel. I haven't really talked to those guys about that. I mean I leave it up to them. I trust them. I have one hundred percent trust. They'll get the job. Done input guys on the field. I WANNA help us play at a high level so I mean I just let them work their magic fair enough. Let's let's have some fun. Always liked to play story time when we have a guy on. So give me your best. You've been in the League now. Two seasons is going to be your three. Give me your best welcome to the NFL MOMENT. You had as a rookie. Oh okay okay. Okay were there are few. Actually there are a few. I think they could be on the field. Whatever you want I so we forgot what week it was the plan the Jaguars on the road. And I don't know if you guys know a fellow Neymar Sadie Louis C. The big humongous Titan. You don't see too often in college so he's coming across the middle. I'm planning to post. He runs like deep over. The play. Action Pass Blake Bortles. He hits them and I don't. I'm not a dilemma. I don't have anything to do other than hits him. I can't go for the ball so listen I think I was probably about two hundred pounds. I do all my whole two hundred pounds. I do. And he bear like he Stumbled and said he didn't even follow for like barely stumbled. My shoulder numb from from our shoulder. Fingertip is completely numb. I what just happened I just had a brick wall wasn't to the NFL son. That was one of them Let me see let me see. I had another one. That problem is my the size and speed. And he's do you you. You can't match it in college on me a lesson plan the FCC play agencies. I mean it's a little different but just the size of these people was my was my welcome to the NFL. That's crazy and so how different was last year for you. I know you got a little dinged up but I'm saying like like just having gone through one season. Like how much better were you in your mind going through it last season. Oh my well. I'm going to New Year for my second. I'm sorry for my bad. Oh no no I bought. I mean well I thought I did. I had a great second year coming into my third year. You know the game slows down. I. It's true what they say You prepare like a like a true pro and you get your body to produce game is going to slow down and you're going to make plays being out there repetitions. We'll get you to where you need to go so game. Definitely slow down tremendously like you said I had a little hiccup got hurt last year but this year coming up. It's Kinda like A. I got a vengeful taste in my mouth. No one did anything to me but I kinda got like a vengeful taste in my mouth. I didn't WANNA I can't wait to get out there yet. I mean you only played six games last year. So right you gotta You. GotTa Lot of pent-up frustration. You gotta you gotTa hit some guys like you will not like you did. Mercedes Lewis but you may have to you have to knock some of those dudes out because they still coming over the middle and you're going to take care of business now. You just told us the Mercedes Louis Story. Is there a story where you knew? A dude was coming over the middle. And you're like Oh this dude wants none of me. Oh I mean having all the time I ain't gonNA namedrop but Happens all the time. Most of most of the team is. Are you know to like in the quarterback? Help out to they put the ball you know. And they're back shoulder like behind a little bit so they don't get their head myself but plenty of times. I'M NOT GONNA name job anybody but it once a game all the time they just dropped to the ground. You wish you could just want. Give them a little namedrop. If you'd like I mean it's okay you know. Just we're just family here in the division we got twice a year. I'll let the ball material. That's true James. John Johnson. The third joining us here. Ram Safety on the Sodano show on seven ten. Espn so Gimme me a couple of things within the locker room here. We go you ready for this. Who's the dude in the locker room? Who's got the best style style? Well last year was Marquis Christian. He's a safety He got signed with the jets but he's probably hands down like he looks like he's fresh off a Paris fashion week everyday cook okay.

Yeah he's really really good. He has one of the best personalities on the on all the rams he was on he's on NFL network a decent amount. They do stuff with this stuff with the station. He's got a great personality. He was comfortable with you. I always feel like when a guy curses not at you but in just in just a regular part of the conversation. I always feel like that's a tip the cap to the talk show host because you've got them so comfortable that they just dropped an F bomb just and we're like oops sorry my bad right because they feel like they're just on the phone with you just having a regular conversation. Hey who's who's the guy that's going to want to stay away from. It goes Joe Note. Boom that's the name I did not expect. He's like he's like he's real quiet but you don't WanNa believe him whoops off at that point. I was cracking up. But it is true. You gotta be careful the quiet ones. Yeah it's always what they say.

Five one eight one man. I just got really hungry all of a sudden. Today's Today's is the great American takeout. Today is the great American takeout My Buddy Evan Cohen was on the show last week tweeted about that so I re tweeted it so basically what you need to do today is in honor of the great American takeout. You should if you're on twitter you should tweet it someone and what is your take out. And then they can do the same for someone else. Keep it going so you should buy takeout today. Support your local business There's a great place right down the street that I'm going to be ordering from so that is today. Don't Cook Today. Laura means you don't Cook today order from your local businesses support. Him they need it. It's a great day to do that. Do you have Laura the the sound of the jeopardy guy who screwed up the Joel. Embiid thing I do I do. I will get it for you. Find it for me because I think it's Kinda funny in the interim before you do that. Mark Cuban was on wfan television and he mentioned that he was asked about the start of the NBA season. He wanted to know or they asked. What do you think like? Is it possible that we're GONNA GET Games back? Like how soon do you think it's going to happen? Here's what Mark Cuban owner of the Dallas Mavericks told Wfan Television in Dallas. I'm proud of Adam. Silver I'm proud of the NBA way. We've reacted we've led the way and hopefully will lead the way out of this. I mean no one has perfect information right now so all decisions are tough. But you know if I had to guess based off the people I've talked to on at the CDC and other places. I would say that you know the over under would be June first and I'm taking the under that hopefully by middle of May were starting to get back to normal in the NBA. Ache is playing games. Maybe not with fans what. We're playing games because sports play such an important role you know. People want something to cheer for people want something to rally route. People want somethin' to to be excited about. I mean he's right about that. There's no question that it would give people a sense of escape kind of what we're trying to do here on a daily basis So but I feel like he's being a bit optimistic but he has better information than we do. You know what I mean like. As far as the way the League is thinking and he's talked about how in that interview he mentioned about how he's been in close contact with the CDC So maybe he you know he's gotTa know more than we know. And maybe we do get games back sooner rather than later. That's still a long ways away over under a June first but it would be kind of light at the end of the tunnel right for sure. Yeah I mean he's extremely well connected and he definitely knows more people than we do and absolutely I would hope I would love for basketball to be back in in. May I just feel like it's a little bit false? Hope for me that I would be possibly be seeing Lebron. Anthony Davis playing again in in in in May or June. That'd be fantastic. Just doesn't seem like everything that we've seen around the world seem like it helps though I mean. Look it's still what. March twenty two twenty four. Yes so that's a long ways away your enemy and I hope two months. Yeah like I think that we're not gonNA see the peak of this for another eight to ten weeks. Which means it would. He's thinking of is by then by June. First he believes according I mean this is what I'm interpreting since he's talked to the CDC so much that will have already seen the peak by then and that things will. If we do this right will be again. They'll be light at the end of the tunnel. We'll be seeing the downside of this hopefully at that particular point so I that's my interpretation of what he said all right so I asked you for the jeopardy clip because we'd said earlier and we're supposed to have Koran Butler next But we said earlier about how the sixers we're going to slash their fulltime employees salaries with anyone that makes over fifty dollars by twenty percent. Basically the internet shame them and told them. What are you doing like what? Yeah Shame. Shame they the Internet. Shame them rightfully so. I'm not into shaming on the Internet. But at this point it's like you got you can't be that tone-deaf dude like come on seriously. People are in a really weird spot. We're all in this together. Being in it together means that you're everyone's going to make sacrifices and the people at the top are going to have to probably make the most sacrifices because they have ways of getting of making good on those sacrifices right because that's what happens when you've got a lot of money so. Whoa tweeted out. That other owners were seeing what the sixers were doing and were weary of the PR backlash basically and then within minutes the sixers reverse course like after talking to everybody. We're not gonNA slash anyone salary. We're going to go business as usual. We're paying everybody so the JEOPARDY CLIP. I think is apropos because remember the Guy Got Joel. Embiid's nickname wrong. But here's what he said if you remember Joel Embiid in two thousand. Nineteen won the trademark for this nickname of his that also describes the seventy sixers strategy of improving the team. Paul what is due at one? Eighty no fiber Mike. What is the process? Well they certainly did at one eighty now so that could be their new slogan moving forward and we're thankful that they did shadow the Pablo Tori. Who's joke I stole but did I delivered it way better than he did anyway. Caramba will join us at four minutes. Stick around Sodano seventeen. Espn Sodano with you here on seven ten ESPN. So what is happening with? Koran Butler Greg. Would you text them? He just says to call and then when we basically he said like yeah just give me a shout my man all right. I appreciate. I'll call you tomorrow at ten forty. This was yesterday and he goes call so I said cool and we called it ten forty and he didn't answer then I said calling now thanks predate it and he gave me the thumbs up. Like you know how you click on the actual text. Put the little thumbs up there. Yeah Yeah Yeah. And He's put the thumbs up. Tried calling again nothing so I said. Hey we're GONNA call you from this number still no answer so I mean. Hopefully he comes on. I mean listen I can't control it. It's okay if he doesn't come on today we'll get him on. It's no it's no big deal but yeah I would just keep trying and we've got thirty minutes left in the show. I'd love to talk to him because I always love talking to him. But if not we'll do it tomorrow or the next day or whatever he's not busy you know it's fine. There's a lot of people trying to do a lot of things right now. Maybe he's trying to go to the grocery store. Maybe who knows? There's a lot of stuff going on but it is national takeout right National takeout day. Greg get great American takeout Hashtag Rate American takeout today. What do you like I mean do you? Is there a good Cuban place by you that you can have since you not really but Angelenos from yesterday said that they would send stuff? I don't want him to have to deliver all the way out here. Like that's fine. Trust me I will go out to Angelina is in Norwalk. When things settle down like Peter? Don't worry I will stop by. Asked the guy at any different place that I've said I will stop by therapy gone on Downing. I go there. I go there all the time. There are plenty of places I go to so I'm not I'm not really worried about. Don't worry about me if I say eventually. We'll stop by to your spot. I will stop by your spot but yeah I'm thinking something a little closer you know so. I don't know maybe Sushi. I'm kind of in the mood. Laura mentioned Sushi and I think she got me in the mood for Sushi. Sushi is one of those things that I can have. Any meal of two can eat a first thing in the morning last thing at night. It doesn't Sushi in the morning. Absolutely I love it. I love it I love it is the best get. It doesn't matter anytime anytime I will not. I can't get sick of. It doesn't matter to me. I will eat Sushi the very first thing in the morning if I have to. What's wrong with that? What's wrong with it? I don't hold on let Laura Shadow the restaurant first and then go ahead. So it's Combo Sushi. It's in Silver Lake area on Sunset Boulevard. Their stuff is amazing. It's kind of fusion. But they deliver and they do. Take out so Kombucha K. O. M. B. U. Sushi on Sunday. It's amazing okay. Fair enough show Greg Shushi in the morning just feels weird. Why it's raw fish so still good. I just don't think of like I'm not even like a bagels and lox person in the morning. You know what I'm saying like. It just feels weird. You know what I'm saying like have salmon in the morning like first thing. It just feels weird to me. Yeah I mean I'm not I'm not the biggest locks fan. I'm not a big fan of that. But you know weird right but Either way it's that that's a little bit off for me but I any Sushi. I will absolutely have ice too. I mean come on I lived in live in Hawaii. And in that time you could go anywhere and get fresh Sushi. Oh well yeah I do remember when we should talk about that more about you. Living in Hawaii it was fun. Man It is a pretty amazing time. I remember working with you like fifteen years ago and all of a sudden I left the company to go work somewhere else and I text you and you're like yeah moving to Hawaii. It was. Yeah it was just perfect timing like I got laid off which was maybe not perfect time that but further timing for being laid off no no but if there was a time to move to Hawaii to start over somewhere right exactly start over somewhere and it was fantastic. We were on the west side of the island and a place called copy. And it was right near you. Know the the Disney hotel the outlawed and the Big Island. Yeah no no. It was on the wall. Oh Sorry Yeah. Anwar who and it was. It was gorgeous you. It was like ten minutes to the beach every direction that you went. It was always great weather. People were really nice. You'd walk down the street. I'D BE WALKING. My dogs and people would just walk by and be like how's it. I was just like he was people. Were Nice it was just. It was such a nice change. It wasn't as expensive as people thought really because that's what I felt like. When I went there I went there for a wedding two years ago. And we rented an AIRBNB and because we brought my daughter at the time. My my wife was pregnant with my son. And we went to Maui now. Maui seemed expensive. At least when we went to the grocery store comparatively speaking. So that's the issue right. There right is that he went to the grocery store when you go to a safe way. That's GonNa be expensive because they have to overprice everything if you go to Costco Costco and by loads of stuff and it's just a normal amount. So that's what we did we. I guess we were only there for a few days. It wasn't like we going to Costco Whitfield Being over indulgent at that particular point right. It just gets a bad stigma because so many people go there too because they don't have jobs and they're like I'm just going to be in the service industry or I'm going to be a a bartender like it's just not that easy and it's tough to have a wage that way but if you go there with actual plan it's not it's really not that bad. What I thought was pretty awesome to your point in the service industry not to get too far off the deep end but the that was a pun intended there the was like how cool it was A. You always see this in the movies about Hawaii. About how like the Guy who's the bartenders? The ballet somewhere else like you know what I'm saying like and it really was that I went to a sports bar to watch some games and the guy who was my bartender. When I went to the wedding the wedding was at the Ritz in Maui. He was the valet at the rich. This can't be true like I couldn't believe how real inaccurate portrayals and movies. Yeah there's a lot of it is like that. Was it forgetting Sarah Marshall. What is what's his name where he had all the different jobs. He was like the Surf Instructor and he was Paul. Rudd Paul Rudd. Yeah he did a whole bunch of things. Yeah that's you you can get a lot of jobs that way absolutely. It is pretty pretty crazy. I loved Hawaii like I did. I had fun there. I would go back for sure. I just you know it's tough with two little ones but but yeah I would love to go back. Yeah would you ever consider living there because a lot of people get island fever you know? I would my wife no Janssen Hill. Really good friends lived there. And and that's why we ended up going to the there but yeah. I could do it. I think. Look Dude if you're telling me that I could start watching football games at like six in the morning or whatever and like you know I mean come on. I that was that was the best part was just like here on the West Coast. We're spoiled because games start so early but over there. It's like three hours earlier than that. Like I mean. Come on dude. You have no idea I was done. I was done with all my sports at five o'clock in the evening I it's crazy. It was fantastic. I had unless that does seem a little early though. No no it was right around the right around there because three hour difference so if the last game starts at five a game starts at five thirty to thirty so three hours five miles thirty or right right and then during the NBA season. Because you do get all the channels there. I noticed that because I get dodger games. Laker games and stuff like that when I was there. I the channels. I definitely was watching the dodgers because they had spectrum there and I was. I was just like impressed. Right like watching. I guess because Dodger Games were started for you know and they'd be seven and it's dinner time. Yeah I guess you could make that work. Yeah and like the way that it works to stays light light a decent amount of time. You can go down there you can go. You can go serve for a little while. It was still in between sports. You can still do everything it was. It was magical magic tomorrow medical. Yeah there you go I mean listen you might as well Quarantine there if you want right but no I mean if eventually that is the goal to get back there at some point This segment is brought to you by progressive insurance.

That's the issue. He actually gets back in text. It's the actual answering the phone guys. No it's fine. We'll figure it out but anyway so we we we have gotten the ESPN Los Angeles twitter page to Talk about the great American takeout and where we should eat today and people are sending suggestions except a gentleman named Sean Meisner. Who I'm sure is is is a good. You know a very loyal listener and I'm sure he has the best intentions but he says eating takeout doesn't make sense be safe. Eat at home. You still can eat at home and order. Take out or delivery for that matter and not come in contact with people very much. You know what I'm saying like it's still very possible. Yes that is what you do. Take out for so that you can eat at home so yes we should do that and I will be going to noodle monster tonight. That's on Magnolia and Laurel Canyon and be getting me some Nice. It's going to be very tasty. I don't know what I'm going to do yet. I can say I want Sushi but at the end of the day I Mrs Sodano has to approve of the Sushi too. So there's that so I I can't just drop the order here. You know what I'm saying. This isn't a totalitarian government here in the Sodano household so it is a democratic process. So I've got to ask but I do love when I do get Sushi here in the South Bay. I actually drive to Mita. And there's a great place called. Oh Connie who may which is fantastic. It is a standalone place. It is really good. They're great so if you are ever in that general region feel free to stop by those are always the best places. Those are the ones that are just little holes in walls type places. Yeah it's actually a big location in the sense of like it's a big restaurant but they've got two sides to it You know there's the one to like dinner holes in the best way to describe it and then there's the Sushi bar but it's great it is fantastic. It is at least one of my favorite spots in the South Bay. And it's not like you know Manhattan. Beach Clubs Yeah. I don't know the area John. Likes to go to the country could have been Manhattan beach. You run into John Ireland somewhere you know. You're boozy play. Chris can you get me some Sushi to the country club delivered here to the Country Club here? The Ireland Ras Al. How far is low? Mita I don't even. I don't know that area down there. Very well meters right off the one ten okay. Ten in age drive the one ten to pch. You get off there and your harbor city. Lameda that all that areas just right in that general region. Yeah so all right so last night. Two nights ago you had a fire alarm issued. Anything crazy happened you last night. No you nothing capping. Last night. I actually asked my wife I said. Did you put the humidifier on for Matteo. And she said yes initially but then she got scared and turn it off like I turned it on for my daughter Aria and she was I put it low and nothing happened and I put the one in our room on low and nothing happened so I just said we just got to be a little more. You know what I'm saying like there's that yet just be a little careful. But all Aria was at off of game of thrones. Oh we weren't even watching. Game of thrones then okay. I didn't start watching. Game of thrones for like two years ago. Oh Oh you came in late also I came in season six. Oh Wow yeah like the end of season six. Everyone was talking about it. I put it on one day and I remember I was still living in Pasadena at the time and I put it on one day. I'm like wow. This is visually like really interesting. And I kinda had an idea what the story was. You know what I mean like you know. I always love game of thrones. People would be like you got to watch every second because if not you'll never get it. If you just jump in your no idea you'll never have an idea. I'm like really not that difficult to figure out. Okay it's basically mob families in like some mythical time right that's that's all. This is what I mean. It's hard to grasp the concept. Yeah at Laura. You've never seen it was wrong with you never. I don't have any interest in watching that show at all show here. Here's my thing like my wife hates like dungeons and dragons and what. She calls nerd stuff right but she got. We got into this because the things we love our. There's some great storylines. There's a lot of betrayal. There's a lot of sex and there's a lot of politics involved If you like any one of those things you should give it a shot. The problem is it. You need to go about nine episodes in the first season before you really feel like. Oh Wow like you have your first big. Oh wow moment and then you'll be hooked if you can get to the ninth episode. Good well can. I don't know it's a Disney show but I'm like you had me at sexes so I might have to watch Disney. Well this show. This show is a Disney only Disney. Espn so I wasn't sure that I'd say sex. Okay I hear you so anyway. So there's that real quick you know did you should NASCAR did not that. I like the Talk Nascar. But did you see? They had an erase the other day. Bergman an erase know what. They had an erase like interactive gaming instead of one of the races and they had nine hundred thousand people. Watch it on television. What nine hundred thousand people eat? That's crazy yeah. I didn't know that nine hundred thousand people still watch NASCAR. I tell you what if if Lebron and Lake Jaanus wanted to play. Nba Two K. Twenty and we put it on. Espn right now. I bet you five hundred thousand people would watch it. All that's low. You're low balling that no. I'm saying at minimum. That's you know you're looking at millions. That thing would go just off. Because you're going to get that all over the world you're not. GonNa get that just in the United States where I can just I would assume that most of NASCAR is just in the United States in the middle of the country. This is going to go all throughout you. Jaanus and Lebron playing to K- mine and just put it on TV. That's what we should do. We should do that. We should you have inside line to Lebron. I'm GonNa just tweet him right now do it? I'm going to be honest at the same time. Get them on there. Yeah I'm GonNa tweet him and I'm going to write. Would you guys want to see you should talk to? I mean I like hearing you talking about what tweeting could you imagine what the what the numbers would look like for that. That would just I think every laker fan people in Greece. It doesn't even matter. I think people would just be excited to watch some sort of basketball and then as long as you have the picture of them you need to actually be on like a twitch stream type deal but it goes on. Espn where they can actually see them getting into it. That would be just out of control. Good yeah a virtual NASCAR Nascar RACE ON TV. Would you guys WANNA see airs play? Nba Two K. On television I mean people do that already in. That's something that happens. A decent amount. Josh Hart was really big into into two K. And I know a lot of other people are as well like Anthony. Davis is on the cover of two K. so That could you can. Even you can pair up with two K. and just do it on their two K-TVHE and see With like Chris Manning and you can have the two of them just going at it People would drop everything to watch that. Yeah I agree I'm not as opposed to twitch I'M GONNA make sure because we it's already on twitch like you know you gotta you gotTa be specific here as opposed to platforms online.

The Sedano Show [Hr 3]

"I don't know who this is. Who is this? Sounds like a ball. Oh yeah, it gets to Saddam thirty five million dollars last year pit bull. I gotta start singing head. Wrapping something my mother-in-law along those rapper. No, oldest rapper. It was the oldest rapper fifty still wrapping Jay Z's game clubs going to say, Jay z. to sell out one hundred thousand people this weekend at the Rose Bowl twice. He's in mid forties. Yeah, cubes getting close tubes to be closing in on fifth as probably the limit is there like obviously the Rolling Stones still torn can kill rappers and his seventy. I use. I used to three fifty snoop Dogg at eighty years old, limp out of the little Kane. John hasn't been around the long. So our went during that for me, we we don't have the aging rock and roller stage yet in hip hop because it hasn't been around long enough bins, right? Like we'll have the answer in about ten or so years. If you know how like some of these groups like they do these oldies tours like together, if say, like Jay z snoop Dray, like all these guys, they're graybeards, do Houdini Kurtis blow in these guys go on tour. They do. You just go to their show. So first of all, I want to let people know Magic Johnson is going to be on the morning show tomorrow at seven thirty. They're gonna replay the interview at nine thirty. So obviously you want to hear from that match John rob link addressed the media earlier today, but they're going to talk exclusively with the morning show against seven thirty tomorrow, and then they'll replay at nine thirty reminder. We're gonna be talking some dodgers with John Hartung spectrum sports, and that's daughter dodger analyst and about thirty minutes. But talking before Michael, about clay, your son of with the warriors, three time champion, and he is potentially going to be a free agent. Yep. Next off season and to me what makes clay the perfect star compliment to somebody like LeBron is that he doesn't care about credit? Yeah, and he is the rare player of his stature that does not care about the credit game because most of these guys. Do and most of these guys care how much credit they're going to be given, you know how, where are they like from media members from media members? I think community from the culture from everybody. I mean, look at what Kevin Durant has been going through as a two time back to back finals MVP. He clearly feels like he doesn't get enough credit and it bothers him. Yeah, you're right. And then we hear these reports of Jimmy Butler. You know, not wanting to team up with LeBron because he knows he's going to be seen as LeBron's Robin, and it's difficult to find guys, particularly guys who aren't made men who would be willing to cede some of that star power and some of that status to a guy like LeBron. Yeah, I hear what you're saying. That makes a lot of sense. I'm not saying they should care about it. I'm just saying they do. I mean. I mean, obviously Michael Jordan gets most of the credit for the bulls championships, but yet Scottie Pippen is still one of the most respected players in the history of game. James worthy Ozzy magic was the leader. Our team got all the attention most of the credit hint, but had worthy was big game, James, and he's still looked at as a champion and hall of Famer. Right. Sure, sure. But I just think when these guys are writing their own legacies and they don't have titles or they don't, they have seen how Durant's been burned. And these guys have been burned like to sign up to be into that whole the bron- world when he's from a previous generation, I can see how so minute kyri is considered a champion. I mean, even LeBron was the Man Who Wasn't just looked out of some sidekick. They win the one not tied without Kyrie. They wouldn't have won the title without kyri, but I think it's pretty clear that kyri wanted to branch out from that perceived shadow of LeBron not saying he should have wanted to or that you know that he doesn't deserve credit playing devil's advocate here. I'm kyri Irving. I've been told since I was eleven on the truth on the severe. I'm video. Taped at team USA practices talking about playing Kobe, Bryant one on one. You know, I'm the guy on the freshman number one, pick as a freshman, and I was hurt in college. Then LeBron shows up and it's the kid and the kid and the kid had a tough one tonight and they can. I go for forty in game five, I go for I've crossover Steph and hit a three in his mouth to win games. I have movies. I have Nike deal, and I'm still the kid and I still move my whole summer. I still do all because this old man, we saw this in LA in the early two, thousands with Kobe. I mean, look the the teams that won back to back to back two thousand and two thousand two. There is no way they go back to back to back. Unless that guard is Kobe period like you could have subbed in t MAC or Iverson's got to win one though. There was no other wing in the league that you could have subbed in for Kobe. That would have gotten him back to back to back shack was you know, Batman, if Kobe. Was the best Robin, you will ever see. He was one. They were really equally important, but Koby has admitted the perception that it was all shack bothered him. Of course, he got nothing to prove shack one, three finals, MVP's cobaine into anything in those finals. That's what moron say, right. And if you let the now, if you let what more on say dictate your life choices than maybe you're a more onto, right, but the idea that Kobe didn't ball out in the finals because shackling the MVP is insane. I mean, his history going say that I mean steps finals haven't been as amazing as his MVP is it was pretty good the night. I saw him break a record and games you this year. Look at me look at Steph or katie's two time NBA MVP finals. So Andrea Goodall. One to one before that Steph ends of one any, but Steph is still respected as a champion and what a great ever right? That doesn't hurt his image and he's doing fine, but but Steph the one ring before Katie showed up. So in a lot of ways steps credentials were already. Proven swim VP's before he. Nobody expected this from Steph to begin with, like nobody expected Steph expected this from Jimmy Butler. So thirtieth pick in the draft. You want to be a career sixteen and a half point score out to be one of fifteen players in the league, which is, but there's, but there's no, there's nothing tangible. You can put her on top fifteen player. You know, when it comes to like the record books and the way these guys wanna be of Jimmy brothers in the legacy game, I think he's just bored in the mid west. He's friends with Mark Wahlberg and he wants to go to New York. Well, I mean, it is only makes it look his. His list of preferred teams in a lot of ways should be red flag. It should be a red flag. Was those teams? Yeah. I mean, it's it's kind of telling that all the teams that he wants to join are worse than his current one, but they just happen to be in big markets and happen to have max camps. Never never know what they could add, but I'm just saying it's a little bit of a red flag. If I'm one of those teams that way he wants to join teams worse than where he is now Woche bomb. He just added Miami to his list. Kevin. It's like when Dwight Howard was, you know, going out of his way trying to push himself out of Orlando, a good team to join a then New Jersey Nets squad. That was awful. It was he trying to do that? Yes, yes. That's where the Dwight Mayer began was Brooklyn wasn't. I know they were still new jer-. I mean, everyone knew they were going to Brooklyn, but they were a terrible team and it made no sense. I think Dwight didn't even understand why he was working so hard to get out of there who is so. Okay. So the the situation make sense to me for the Lakers. Right? Because he has run its course in New Orleans. They've had several rebuilds. They've had success. They've won a playoff series. He's done his time in New Orleans and AD just to stand up nude from everything we've seen is giving back in that community. No one's going to be burning, Anthony Davis jerseys on bourbon street if he gets traded leaves. Right. Is that it is that the only one? Well, I mean, Yoenis isn't going anywhere. He's locked for long-term key messing up. Those coaches. They've. Had three coaches since we're on this radio show. Yeah. I mean, he's kind of like a small town guy, kind of, you know, contented guy to be up there. It was like, oh my God, they've smoothies Milwaukee is amazing. You know? So I don't think he's gonna look to leave the walkie anytime soon. All right. Who else was the young? Obviously NBA not going anywhere in Philly. Him and Ben Simmons have something good going on there. Poggi we don't know as we're gonna see. We don't know what that looks like. Thirty nine. Yeah, but so you know, I mean, but I don't know these idea that, well, if you build it, they LeBron comes, then everyone's come in. I don't know he's onto something, but I think ultimately, why this is not a disaster because I know there's this huge expectation that the Lakers are going to be landing, some huge free agent this off season if they don't because it's a really small pool of guys to choose from. And I'm not even once. Yeah, my convince is gonna be a lot of movement. I don't think it's a disaster because again, I think the kids are so right on to take a next step. Yeah, the Lakers are even if they don't add another star all star next year, big time, all star top ten player. I think they need young guys are going to improve so much that the legacy will going to be a top fourteen next year anyway, if they don't add it all star, Brandon Ingram is not an all-star after these next two years. He had disappointment. Number two, pick in the draft be an all star by year. Follow right halibut because the voted me make the he's only twenty twenty one, I believe. So he might not make the all star team until he's twenty five because the west has so many players the and so he's going to be in. All star before these Twenty-eight, Brandon Ingram? Yup. Death. Well, what really matters if you are playing in an all star caliber level because like in the west, it's so hard. I mean there there are looking at the read and Michael just said that and you didn't listen to this. Damian lillard. Ear about this as great as limited is he gets on as an alternate sometimes because somebody got hurt, you know, it's not good. I saw the women's anything. Jamal. Magor was an all star. That's right. Yeah. Remember, ROY Hibbert was at all. Remember that there was that one season Toronto, Mike, James averaged twenty points a game. I mean, like I James, that's right. And he got paid paid off that million bucks over six years. Then I live on that. Now if you get the opportunity most of these guys, they can make something happen if there's nobody else there and somebody take either way. I don't think we'd love to add another superstar next year. But if they don't, like you said, I think this team is headed in the right direction anyway. Yeah, I there. There's just these young guys to me, they just really seem ready special lunacy and not Lonzo about heart Kouzmin and Ingram right now seem special. We'll find out about Lonzo, but I feel like those three, especially, I just seem like character guys in special guys and the idea to with with the type of versatility that Ingram wants to bring to his game to be really that type of complete player to learn about being a complete player from one of the most complete players in NBA history. Yes, complete humid's. I really wanna see what that looks like. Lonzo's a pretty special player. You gotta remember ten. Seven, seven lash has rookie Ben. That's not bad, but that's some. That's Jason Kidd numbers when he was a rookie stop. What do you mean stop stops a young kid. He was terrible share. It doesn't count last year. Now also, have you put a four, four and four you to say team as bad killing again, we're talking about playing may and actually, okay. We'll get into this coming up next because I just wrote a piece at the Atlantic and again, their money's worth over getting their money's worth over there in the Atlantic about Lonzo and why his season last year was so difficult to actually evaluate. It was a really weird season roller gross here where he did some stuff that was really good, but also some stuff problematic. Also, we're going to be given out l. AFC tickets and swag in the six o'clock hour for their game, this Saturday against San Jose. So make sure to be listening. Talk about that with Lonzo coming up next. They're doing it again at Harrah's resort casino, southern California. If you want a chance for tonight's day. Harrah's resorts.

Before we get to this discussion about Lonzo we need to talk a little bit about the brewing feud between Andrew Wiggins, Jimmy Butler. And now Steven Jackson, who will be a great motivationalists. Stephen Jackie would motivate me to do anything l. e. asked. So Jimmy Butler as we know once out of Minnesota. And there's been a lot of talk that he and Andrew Wiggins do not get along. And as this news broke, the Butler has requested a trade, Nick Wiggins. Andrew Wiggins is brother tweeted out. I believe an Instagram post that said, Hallelujah ended up a church doesn't seem like it. He deleted the tweet temple and then Jimmy Butler ended up Butler ended up onto. We don't do a lot. Hallelujah. You don't do that? No, no. It's more Amen. In the black churches. Wiggins or the Yarmuk on a smile to my face worked for MAURICE Amar, but so Jimmy Butler responded on Instagram doing a story and ended it with Halloween said, keep that same energy, which led to Andrew Wiggins responding after Stephen Jackson had commented about the energy as well. Tweet. Instagram'd s j old dudes stay hate and like he was anything special. I keep that same energy everywhere I go. So that was to Stephen, Jackson. Stephen Jackson went to social media and responded in kind say. Oh. Got allow town the kid, you gotta lie down and all hope. You have a good year. Hope. Someone you can find some hard and find some passion for the game and have a good year. I really wish you the best. Oh, I'm farting. Thank God. I'm happy to see party bomb on. I never been never been that. You know that. I'm from those who I'm cut under the old law. You know what I'm saying? Respected a checking. All that. I'm ahead. Same energy went wherever I go. All that same man make sure you're interested in what you see me bre. I, I'm pretty sure you know why I'm actually rate just focus on finding some hard and having a good year. I wish you the best. You got a outta town. Just find that please don't try to do that. We may bro. You know what I'm saying? Just keep saying, man, I can't you in traffic. One hundred. Traffic. Then I'm not up on all this, the hip hop talk there. He said, he's mean, he basically said that Andrew Wiggins is soft week has no heart and Steven Jackson is not to be messed with. And I think I agree with pretty much most of those things. I wouldn't say I wouldn't go as far as questioning, Andrew, Wiggins is hard. However, I do feel like Steven Jackson is cut from a different cloth. So here's the best part of it. Listen really closely to how it begins. So. That's Stephen, Jackson accent when smoke. Say, what do you say little little one little one little one. Say. Oh. Nice taking a breath. No, no, no. You can see the smoke coming out like he did like coop Cohiba. I do that sometimes beyond Jay did like the weeds smack one more time play that. Okay. So. That sounds like smoking town. The kid, you gotta lie to talent, and I hope you. I love that Stephen Jackson can now live in a world where he can go on the jump in a suit and tie and be on corporate Disney channel and be calling out people against you. Hi, there. Traffic Barkley is the only guy who can do what Charles Barkley does. And Steven Jackson is sort of the only guy like my Tyson actually has reentered the zone where he's reinvented himself. Some houses like cuddly lovable guy, which is really bizarre. When you think of that, the person who is the best of that, I think in all pop culture landscape of making sense in different rooms snoop Dogg. Yes, so I could show up at high times awards. Make sense. Sebok could show up at the NFL hall of fame ceremony because he loves football, makes sense. He does a show with Martha Stewart so somehow makes sense. He could be the Oscars or at NASCAR or at the hip hop awards or wherever snoop dog wants to go. It's a great skill to have. I'm fearful for Andrew Wiggins. Like he's already got a look over shoulder. Now, training, Jimmy Butler went to get some bumper to bumper traffic. Any applesauce. Oh, no. I mean, no. I don't think throat punch out. He won't like jump in the crowd at the palace and try and do anything. You know. You know, you got a lotta talented kid just the way that starts, you know, it's not going to end in a really positive place for Andrew Wiggins. So we were talking about Lonzo before and Ben has been. I wanna say unimpressed by what you've seen Lonzo so far, but you're definitely far from sold and you haven't seen anything special, would that be? I haven't say I haven't seen anything special. I just don't know what's going on out, like kind of having some question marks about so many different things with this young kid. I'm not attacking his character and I just haven't been as impressed as I thought I would be. So he's he's, he's probably the second best rebounding Gardner game behind Russell Westbrook Namie about a rebound guard. I can't think of one. I know you're absolutely right. He does a great job. We bought him out if I was still classy. Man, you should try rebound like we're on. So he he played enough game. He would have finished talk, ten percents, second-best rebounding got he has some of the best vision in a game. I tell clay all the time, say, man, you play along the way he throws the ball. All you got to run the floor. He drops it. They call a drop it in the bucket for guys Kouzmin Ingram to finish at the rim. He's one of the best in the league at that already. He's, he can get you ten points even with that. Funky looking shot. He can get you ten. So he's, he's he's better defensively than anybody that's in passing lanes and creates havoc shots. Yeah. And Ben, I seen him. He's had what? Three or four triple doubles. So I don't know why. I don't know why you dump this kid. Okay. So he doesn't have the pure shooting touch of of Bradley Beal or Klay, or Kevin Durant or Steph, but he can play. Honestly, like when I look at the small sample size and that's what we have, and I know his game comes down to feel and I am a fan of his game. I don't know. There's somebody is not come much basketball. I love so much I watch for you. It's not coming together. I just like he's comfortable in his own skin. I don't feel like he has this -sarily one hundred percent focus on getting better basketball, too many stories of him not wanting to put in the extra work really. Absolutely. And I heard that I think he has trouble finishing around the rim. I know he's. Better. Come on. We'll see about it. I mean, what? What makes Lonzo so interesting. And I think so hard to peg is the things that he does. Well, he often does exceptionally well particularly at his position in this piece that I, that I mentioned that I wrote at the ethnic last year. There were only two rookies who finished top five for assists per game. Rebounds per game, steals per game blocks per game and double doubles. Ben Simmons Lonzo ball. How about that Ben, Ben Lyon, that's impressive, but buck his issues. His issues goring are real real for now. Just just when you're doing it on a bad team, it's just totally different culture. But what he's doing that sort of stuff though is difficult to one team like blocking shots point guard position is difficult to do. I don't care what team that blocking so many shots that I'm like, wow. His block rate was second on the team for anybody who played minutes behind brick Lopez. He was horrible. That's my point. So like quoting all these stats from a horrible team that was. Horrible team though. Actually, five games. They were actually not a horrible team with a lot of injuries that to deal with it could've won forty. They could have been a five hundred team in west with no all stars. That's not easy to do not give them for Don, but they weren't that far from it though. Man. I don't know. I don't know. We saw play every game. He got some impressive games. Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. I listen. I'm not going to sit here though and say all this kid's spent. We're going to build around him for years. I'm not there yet or you didn't you think the way when you saw Jason Kidd his rookie year? No, you buy nice player. Right and look what he turned out to be. I'm trying to think back to nineteen Ninety-six how I felt. I'm back in ninety six. I was third fourteen. You remember Jason Kidd. Oh. Yes. A three point shooter later in his career, and I understand everything's fluid, and I hope he does get better. And I hope he is a terrific player for years to come. That said, well, we're talking about if they call for Anthony Davis, and they say, you know what? We want Ingram who's on Lonzo what he. What do you know how hard it would as a team employ? Michael, can't talk back. Thinking about that call. Just smiling for this. Boo. All right. Speaking of smiling, that is the dodgers coming off a sweep of the Rockies at dodgers stadium really important series that they needed to win. We're gonna break all that down next with John Hart tongue spectrum sports net dodger analysts, and it came in. That's Ben lines. Michael Thompson, ESPN LA. Michael's already planning on his itinerary for coming. First thing I look when I look at the schedule and the liquor schedule comes on. First thing I was look for as the Miami trip. All we're going to have like a day or two extra day two in Miami, like we had last year or even a day before. But this year we play Orlando and the day before we played the heat. So that means no day off in Miami, which we all on the four s you know, you're gonna get Saturday night in Miami. He'll play their early game in Orlando down. You'll get into around eleven or twelve, which that's time to let me play Sunday on day three o'clock, start on the east coast, six o'clock start Miami, right. So then you'll go, yeah, then you'll go out at night Sunday Night Live. You'll go to live on Sunday night and then you'll go up to Cleveland on Monday. You'll go to the school on Tuesday and you'll play the cows on Wednesday. Oh, so you don't want to stay in Cleveland and Miami on Monday. They don't want to help the kids. I know I like him to south beach. Let's g six and fly to Cleveland. Speaking of somebody who is always here for the kids, John Hartson covers the dodgers four spectrum sports net. How are you? Man? I'm doing great fun time of year, and I'm sure you guys have been noticing spent a lot of fun to watch this dodger baseball team the last few weeks for sure. All year long. I've been saying, where's the magic? Where's the magic baseball? Such a marathon. You need a bubble machine. You need a Hanley. I see you, you need magic, and it's finally come view. Had that similar feeling of what is making the season special. And now it feels like this week run in the last couple of weeks. Have finally been special this summer. That's so true because we've all been saying all the guys that I work with the analysts that I worked with, they said for the last four months or so. This just doesn't really have that special healed. So it doesn't have that factor or something happened after they were swept at home by the St Louis cardinals. And since then on eighteen out of twenty five, they took Ryota four in Arizona to three and coming out, oh three or four Saint Louis sweep them, and it's for medical instance. One walk on William and the first four months. Of the season to have had three last month to have a couple already this month, including the one fifth salient, the other night. And those are the signs that the magic has returned to the dodgers because starting to feel a little bit more like last year for say, why do you think that happened? John. I think if we could put our finger on it, what what they would have lifted switch a lot sooner. I don't really know why. I think they dealt with so many injuries all season long, and it seemed like for me when kenley Jansen a heart scare happened in Colorado, I just felt like, okay, that's going to be really the last just whatever along for this team this year. That's just the way it's going to be. But then once I got kenley back and they were swept by the cardinals, everything just came together and I don't really know why it happened. But for some reason it did happen in this is not the last three weeks or so. Yes, yo- Puig is in a groove like this when he's this hot just seems like he's turned himself into a to Hank Aaron really maze here last couple of weeks when he's that hot, I noticed that like the play, the platoon game, righty lefty. But shit just leave a hitter like that in no matter who is who's on the mound. Yeah. And the guys that I work with no Maher and show, they would like to see, especially the player who's hot, like he'll point has right now and even talk. Peter's been tweeting about really well. They would like to see those guys play more every day, but really, Justin Turner, Manny Machado. And everybody else is basically put tune player on this team right now in large part because they have so much depth and the analyze the numbers Softbank's almost I'll tell you that point does not get left handed pitching all that. Well, he's a reverse with guy and he it's Benham against whiten Anders and show if that's what he did damage on last night. He did it against a right hand or left the slider just up enough for him hit that three run home run, and he pinch hit against a right enter. They didn't go to a left hander in that spot. They went to go hits right handers and Dave Roberts pushed all the right buttons once again last night and and y'all still, we came through them and but yeah, I mean, it would be nice to see somebody's guys get more reps, but then you have other guys like mad campaign and people like that. Who are not playing, and Dave Roberts is kind of in a tough spot because he has so many spires understand, but he's gotta get certain guys. We'll have to keep them once they ran with it the day Roberts at times, but to keep them hot talking with John Hartung spectrum sports. And that's dodger analyst with regards to Yasuko Puig. There's always concern about him and focus and lately he's been on a tear really productive. How significant do you think it is? At least potentially that he's been able to do this during a time? It's been pretty turbulent with his house getting robbed a few different times. Yeah, I think that's been very impressive because a lot of people that it has been reported on, but a lot of people don't realize what he has been dealing with with the house being rather than some other other personal things that he would be going through. But yeah, and he's admitted to he admitted it during spring training that his goal was more focused, and he admitted that in the past has always been focused. But when he is and when he's lot like is at the plate right now, you're seeing kind of lawyer that dodgers have in Iasi hell week, and we've seen it in the past as well, but he's truly special special talent. And that's why the fan love this guy so much because he plays like his hair was on fire all the time. And when he's lacked enemies focused, he's amazing to watch. You know, every every series and every game. Now at this stage of the season is obviously important. I don't wanna look past the San Diego Padres, but I'm going to when you see the Diamondbacks on the schedule, they've had the Gye the dodgers and Diamondbacks have gone on it going at it all year long. What can they do in. That series, you know to to to finally put a nail in the coffin and win this west because that's going to be the series that really determines it. The rest of the way. Yeah, I think so too. That's going to be interesting to see where the Diamondbacks psyche when Gary gets you're on Monday. They have three against the Rockies this week gun in resulted and the Diamondbacks do have their rotational lined up for that series of rank and then Corbin pitching the first two games, but last night. But I'm back pretty much raise the white flag or so when they didn't play Goldschmidt, they didn't play Peralta. They didn't play most of their starting guys and it's kind of a find out, okay, we're giving up, but then the Cup last night ninth and nothing with these mostly backup players. So if they haven't that weekend against Rockies they might be it somewhat whether it's the division race or possibly the wild card race. But if they're out of those past games for some of those players on the Diamondbacks did up or because they have several guys like sprint agent after this year and the dodgers are going to be playing with. Tip on their shoulder, but certainly with a lot of motivation when the west six time is Walker builder, making a case for the number one star on this Team New as or that'd be an insult to kershow. Yeah, I don't think it's an insult everybody respects and knows what Clayton Kershaw has done. And I heard John Smoltz was a hall of fame pitcher, say yesterday on MLB network. In the past pitcher and all the baseball for the last decade. But John Smoltz right now, Walker feel is the best pitch me on this staff, and it's hard to argue with that right now given what wants to be dealing and stuff that he has and knowing that Clayton Kershaw is not quite like I all last year or years past. But at the same time, Clayton Kershaw also being just how good he is now smart, he is being able to adjust on the fly and rolling hor pitches to the side as opposed to always coming inside on right handers. And if he had enough innings to qualify right now, he'd be certainly National League and on average and someone a lot of people are saying, oh, Clayton posts out, not Clayton Kershaw anymore. He's still one of the best pitchers in the National League talking with John Hart, telling spectrum sports net dodger analysts. If we had a situation where Walker bueller ended up the number one in the playoffs, how do you think Kershaw would react to that? Because that's been his gig for quite a while. Yeah, I don't know if the dodgers would even do that to not so much to do with the Clayton Kershaw, but whether they would do that to Walker Miller, I think one hundred could certainly handle it because this is a guy who you know, don't let kind of like the Ono Hirsch is I looked in, don't let the looks full you. This is a guy that has killer mentality when he gets on the mound, has got an incredible amount of confidence, and I know that wouldn't have any problem going to him and it came on or possibly decisive game five or game seven situated if it gets that far, but I just don't know. They would do that. They would probably go with Kershaw in game one. And then you were lined him up in game two. That's my guest. Jean King is the new owner of the dodgers. What's that about. Yeah, I just heard about that today. Myself, heard all the details yet been out and about running around today, but I think it's exciting. I mean, that's a franchise that obviously you guys know what happened, sending Hymie, hurry and Domo preventative Allen's always one. To try to fight social injustice in any way and to having clues in any way as well. And I think Billie Jean King, I didn't know they're still plastic stories today with a huge geyser then here in Los Angeles. So I think it'd be great and I'm looking forward to her talking on Friday tomorrow to share more about this whole experience for the privilege pressures of privilege as Billie Jean King. Say, it's amazing story, amazing career to lead to that. That's awesome. John Hart, Tony covers the dodgers four spectrum sports. Thanks for thanks so much for the time. John appreciate it. I actually I wanna stay on that with Billie Jean King becoming on now, part of the ownership group with the dodgers because it reminds me of a situation that's gotten a lot of ugly headlines in sports right now that I think you look at the dodgers and they may be set up very well to avoid explained with that as an into our to. Billie Jean King is they might think anything's talking about BB king. Look, we're not talking about Mike Trudell. I think most of our listeners are familiar with people before nineteen hundred. Five. I'm going to give them a little bit of credit, but we will explain Billie. Jean King is if you don't know who it is. ESPN LA this. It's the Sodano show. That was easy to say, sit down. I'll show you solo Sadan show Kim. Keep Ben lines. Michael Thompson filling in for George who is now the proud, new father of a little baby. Boy also Matteo Sodano, see Knicks championship and complete. I was son, right? Mike, you gotta son? Yes. I do see changes your life. What about you? Funchess? You gotta son, no kids, no kids, no kids yet don't kill you. You're not a man yet. Then his Matt, Damon, a man. How many times? Zero noble, no kids for daughters. Kobe Bryant. I am an Michael is Kobe Bryant, a man. They need to keep trying. Three, even Kobe after three until you get it right. Well, I guess I'm not going to be a man because I only have one daughter and we are going to have. Nope, not gonna. Have more kids young, Michael. Thank you. Thank you, but I am not that young volume. Oh enough. I am old enough actually to remember who Billie Jean King was. I know little girl prime. Yeah, I love that. You're talking about this as we transition to Billie Jean King, not a man until you have a son, and let's talk about a woman who fought for quality. Always the app. Having a boy, it's because of people like Billie Jean King that I am secure. I understand the way gender role should work. Gender equality should work, and therefore I don't fall prey to the standards set up by Michael Thomson that because I am only the father of a daughter. I have not yet a man, Michael bar mitzvah thirteen. It was settled at that point. I was a man was God's law. All right, man. I went to a bomb it, so it was. That was pretty cool. Well, let's have into one in your career was only invited to one. Yeah, that's the one I went up in Portland and us. Amazing how little twelve year old in recite Hebrew, it's hard. Yeah, I understand. No, I, I actually memorize it. I wrote out a lot of my Hebrew phonetically. English. I work I, I don't know. I have a, hey, do that again. Drop off after I did not like the whole experience. I found it nerve wracking. I didn't like having that many people up there staring at me watching the struggle, those pretty intimidating for twelve year old ago then do that impressed. Yes. Welcome to manage so well because hood exactly go around questioning. So Michael, because you're the only one old enough to really remember talk about the social impact Billie Jean King when not only just the thing with Bobby Riggs, but just her whole career as a tennis player came during the women's movement back there in the sixties, of course, during the civil rights movement to remove trying to get equal rights. So same thing that's happening now was that women joining any rights lease. They got equal rights. So give me started, but. I grew up in the sixties. They got not everything's perfect another you, but they got equal rights laws protecting protect. You know those laws back then careful Dallas. Anyway, continue continue loss of protect with case that we don't have those laws. They got laws with the gender equity and employment stuff's of believe it. It's not like how it wasn't as I keep hearing that stuff and not not even close, but she was a pioneer for women's rights and equality. And she was as important to that movement is Muhammad Ali woods or well, you know, Martin Luther King's king of course in many ways, but she was right up there with everybody else marching and standing up equal rights for everybody, blacks, whites, women, everybody should gays and she, she's, she's wanted all time. Great. American heroes. Yes. She was absent with done, just great tennis player. So curious, like just what her impact now as part owner of the dodgers will be and how she'll put her fingerprints on the organization. I, I don't know. Yeah. I mean, she grew up in Long Beach and she was a huge dodger fan growing up. So this is in some ways for feeling like a childhood dream for I mean, she's obviously great athlete, but she grew up a dodger fan, but what I found at least potentially significant. About Billie Jean King joining the ownership group for the dodgers is seeing what went on with Dallas Mavericks and the report that just came out about just the ugly, ugly atmosphere where sexual harassment sexual assault permeated within that atmosphere. And that happened because even if you believe Mark Cuban that he was genuinely unaware of all of that going on, it happened because he didn't care enough to look into it right. And with somebody like Billie Jean King as part of the ownership group, she is going to be somebody that looks for something like that. She's going to be somebody that will notice when things are off and part of big part of preventing something like that. That happened in Dallas is actually giving a damn and Billie Jean King will. And I think that's great for the dodgers. Not that they have a problem though, but thing just just proactively preventing or just proactively looking to make things better even if they're already good. She, I think she will be helpful as line. It's just got a small. Already, I'm sure share but still help our president. She'll be around a lot. You'll be she'll be she'll be she's going to be taken seriously. I mean everybody in that ownership group probably just wanna be around because he's an idea. Yes, he's a legend. You see what happened to the Dallas Mavericks ever happening in Laker land? No, no, genie's Jeannie. Genie is too conscious of what's going on in in her in organization. Tim Harris, genie's right hand man is they're very cautious about equality about sexual harassment about treating people with respect so that, right. I'll go to limits that would never happen Lakers. No. So if it were to happen, she probably be accountable on some level. Right about her didn't, right? Yeah. So here we are Dallas, Mark, Cuban, and he's he's going to be there opening night and he'll be there throughout the games and needed a ten million dollar check. But I mean, the I, I agree with Stephen that he should have been suspended. Somebody said until Christmas, I thought I think it was. You said it shouldn't. Maybe it was used that. He said. Maybe John Ireland said he should have been suspended till Christmas, just send a message. I think also too, in the case of Mark, Cuban, you wanna talk about doing something that hurts him, Mark, Cuban losing the ability to be front and center in front of a camera as the center of attention. Yeah, that's really that hits gets more than anything in his wallet. Humble him do. Yeah. Because you know, allowing that or being negligent of that going on your company, that is, that is very serious. Let me to me if if you wanna give in a weird way of putting it Mark, Cuban, the benefit of the doubt that he genuinely did not. No, not always. It's still his responsibility to me. It's actually believable that he wouldn't know just because he's been such a self absorbed owner. You know, a Mark Cuban is always been somebody that is very much about that spot lane, and you know, putting himself out there in front of all these different platforms, shark tank, and always being in front of a camera, always seeking attention in a lot of ways where they're getting fined by the league or making ridiculous rules where ESPN gets briefly band. And it speaks to somebody that if. He didn't know about this. It's because we didn't have his eye on the ball or didn't care the care. And that's, you know, it's oftentimes when we're hearing these cases, sadly and sports were men in power are playing well, I didn't know card, and to me, that is just as indicting as the I did know when I covered it up or I because you are a leader of menu of leader of an organization of bins and you don't know what's going on. Anything that happens in an organization that's on you. On your organization, all urban Meyer nonsense. I saw that conversation with Tom Rinaldi. Notice back the time. He did an amazing job. I thought on that, but it was just a complete joke and like sitting there with Mariah who didn't know about the situation having? No, she's no. She rising angel. She's have time for urban Meyer sex scandal stories. So of sexual abuse stories. I think she, she thinks it's horrible. She thinks it's horrible that he still gets the coach as do I wanna see think when you told her that Myers wife knew about the domestic violence because they were all close friends, but yet she did not tell her how she knew that was completed load of guacamole there. I mean, come on. When you saw urban Meyer in that interview with Tom? Rinaldi, what you saw was basically an extension of that original press conference where he clearly doesn't care. I mean the the problem is urban Meyer doesn't really care about the situation. It's not even clear that he actually believes Courtney Smith. I mean, I, it's not entirely clear that he actually believes that all this happened, but even if he did believe it, it's clear. He doesn't think it's that big of a deal. It's not something he considers an urgent matter and he can. He can preach all the respect women culture that he wants and puts it all up on a rule board or whatever. But it's very clear. He doesn't care about the situation as pertains to him and what he didn't do enough getting back to Billie Jean King then like she's always care and she's always showed humanity and compassion, and she'll bring that to the dodgers ownership group. And as I say, that needs more of it, but everybody can use more of that. So why not? It's really, really special that she was a lifelong dodger fan. I had no idea. So congratulated. This is actually where like, you know, diverse. Often gets thrown around, I think too much, and sometimes it gets co opted in different ways positive or negative, but like at its most pure form, diversity is great because it's literally just diverse perspectives. And if you have a company with diverse perspectives, you're going to be a better company because it's just that many group think can be a bad thing. Yeah. Group think creates tunnel vision group groupthink leads to you missing things that are important, and that's where diversity actually matters. It's not about like ticking off boxes or making sure you have like a rainbow coalition of anonymity. It's literally just diversity of perspective and trite. So you gotta go to the black Barbara. Next time you need to haircut, I take care of that in my own mind. Waste of money better. You got a black bar at home. It's called the razor. This myself, man. Yeah, I should hang out there. Just fill this conversation ahead of be the black barbershop, Mike. Anymore because I love my hair. You think my hair cut in the buck. Yeah. So. We're going to have to get a little snook slippers. You can have those little wavy. You know. I got a little wave going right now. George. Hamilton. I wish I George Hamilton's Ted, you look, you look at one of the Kennedy's from the sixties for that. Here's how doesn't look like look at beat up. One of them, candy, brothers and lines lives a very, very charmed life reminder and Kennedy Magic Johnson's going to be on the morning show tomorrow at seven thirty. They're gonna replay that interview at nine thirty tomorrow morning. We are also going to replay our conversation with Lakers GM rob Pelinka at six thirty. I love you guys. You guys are great. You guys are the best keep doing what you do. You're going to be learning not just about the Lakers but about sharks at. That's right. If you missed this, you will learn a lot about sharks and of the deep up next. It's Michael. Camera shot getting all the glory. But speaking of the glory, Shaquille O'Neal has some thoughts about whether LeBron James can go down as one of the great Lakers of all time. He's ready that. Kidding me. Explain Jackson. It's coming up. Next add small business owners. You know that a clear and straightforward communication is crucial. So an AT and t. says, one thing and actually means another. It gets really, really frustrating. For example, AT and t. says they have fast internet, but what they really mean is basic internet with slow starting speeds that can't keep up with your business Spectrum. Business internet starting speed is one hundred megabits per second much faster than AT and t. and AT and t. says they have affordable small business rates. They mean they'll add taxes and charges for more services that you need. But when Spectrum Business says they have blazing fast internet for just forty four ninety nine a month and voice for just twenty nine ninety nine a month. They mean it. There's no hidden fees, no out of taxes, no contracts ever. So if you're stuck in an AT and t. contract Spectrum Business will buy you out search Spectrum Business to see what they can do for your small business restrictions apply call for details ESPN LA.

HR 1: The story of Kuzma!

"BEN LYONS BACK FOR MORE ESPN LA Sodano. Show ESPN radio presented by progressive insurance all our guests on the Sodano show appear via the shell pennzoil performance line. What a night last night out in Orlando. Lots to get into from the Lakers win over the nuggets I was sitting there watching the game and going back and forth and my dad and I'm introducing him to WHO BOWL BOWL is. Bowl Bowl played his first NBA game just a few a week ago two weeks ago as part of this restart in Orlando I'm showing my dad who Michael Porter, Jr. is kid doesn't miss a shot and a half. He's lights out. He looks like if the bad guys in the mighty ducks grew up, he looks like the bad guy in every eight ninety sports movie ten years later this guy looks like a future man who is Michael Porter Jr... So. If all the excitement is around all these young nuggets and this team that might be finding himself. Look some tells me number zero is GonNa come to the party with a chip on his shoulder and sure enough tile Kouzmanis Ma put on a show last night and hit a big shot. You all saw you heard it. You've seen the tweets and it's such a big deal to me because I look at the current state of this Laker team, which was struggling three losses in a row the. Bubbles Weird. You can shock it up to the seating already be done and kind of existing in this weird limbo of were preparing for the postseason but we're not really trying to win this game, but we're also trying to put these lineups together that we might need us but it's just as a little felt a little scattered to be honest the last few nights watching the lake show especially against Indiana. So so here you have Kyle Kuzma who if you go back to the beginning of the season? When Anthony Davis was traded to the Lakers. It wasn't just okay. We got a D.. He's the last of the young kids remaining. Let's collectively move forward. I'll know don't don't forget the ad trade was done well before the July first free agent signings were made official. So that was done what end of June last year. So Kuzma it has to exist in this limbo of lamb I the third guy are they elevating me? I'll know they're trying to get collide still they're still out free agent hunting, Jj Radic's in the mix. Oh. So didn't really feel fully embraced beyond simply, Hey, we didn't send you down in New Orleans. Then he gets a shot to play with Team USA in the Global Games the. World. Games in while that might not seem a lot. 'CAUSE is not an Olympic year. It's a big deal for a young player to be part of the Team USA program and to go overseas representing the country and he's having a nice nice little tune up for that, and then he rolls his ankle and. Foot and his legs never find his footing. This season doesn't really get off to a good start never healthy and like to traditional Lebron teams that third guy kind of struggling to find his footing. You think of Chris Bosh. As the third wheel down in Miami, it was often such a brunt of the criticism. The focus of the criticism took a brunt of it and then he had you know Kevin. Love would often get made fun of in Cleveland for not taking not being in the photos on the plane with Lebron or being the odd man out third wheel and all and. Will now have Kyle Kuzma, who is not even nearly the accomplished player that Kevin Love or Chris boss was at the point in their careers multiple time all stars and things like that profile for agents. sagay was traded by the team that drafted him sits guy who would kind of overlooked planet Utah Secondary Big. Major. program. So he's playing with a chip on his shoulder keys. Staying within himself and he gets a moment last night and they dropped the play to perfection. It's just a great moment for Laker team for him to hit that shots after trying to get the charge, you did the right basketball play the play before it gets called for the blocking foul his night could have easily gone another way. But Frank Vogel draws it up Kyle Kuzma hits it, and forever as basketball fans, we are now going to have this piece of sound which I'm about to play you, which is just so tremendous moon again. Today Laura can you t up what Kyle had to say about the last shot of the game afterwards I think Jesus could be in front of me and I'll probably you. Don't matter me. got. Look play that we kinda ran. And practice a few times no prior says that restart in no coach Dave me in this call number and I A straight talk from Kyle Kuzma straight talk wireless has the full court cell phone coverage. You need just forty five bucks. A month gets you the unlimited plan with twenty five gigs of high speed data. Then two G. for up to fifty percent less than the big carriers only at Walmart. Savings may vary see terms and conditions at straighttalk dot com for that young man come out there afterwards and say Yeah Jesus Christ in front of you still would have shot it not only as a basketball moment that's going to be part of Kyle's journey but speaks to the confidence you have to have to really assert yourself. Alongside Lebron, James it alongside Anthony Davis. Now I gotta be honest I haven't seen the footage. I'm not I didn't watch him play in college and and Jerusalem I didn't see him coming up in the game i. don't know what kind of defender Jesus if he has a wingspan like bowl bowl. That's impressive. But Kyle Kuzma MMA with the confidence that had to make coach. Happy. What is thank Baldo say about it after the game. I think it's unlikely that we keep ministry lineup is something I want to look at something we have available with how massive we're looking at. we're likely going to need to to quit guards the way most of these teams. That we could be facing it's a small ball league so We're these offensive speed on the perimeter. So Casey and Danny is likely to the lineup but you know again you get in different mass up. There Freeman is six ten. and Michael Porter Jr.. So it'd be get any to match up against Denver where it gets another team that is big like this. Could be an option for us. So it's just another part of the trial and error and evaluation of looking at different things during seating games. I love the voice of reason right there. Everyone's gas. Everyone's excited. Kyle hits big shot I shoot over Jesus I'm confident. Will Frank. Vogel. Comes in sobering adults voice of reason, and says, well, let's let's see what what are matchups look like in terms of Kyle starting in the future and starting still means a lot to guys at might sign sound a little juvenile but it's true and you saw kyle after the game saying everyone in this league, not a starter I'm just playing the two best players in the League or Two of the best players in the world and so two guys it's definitely definitely a point of pride to be a starter and you see the ones who are able to switch that mentality and embrace coming off the bench whether it's Lou Williams Jamal Crawford Jr Smith at one point his career that that they're able to embrace that and have success. But it takes a little bit of humble pie usually comes a little bit later on in your career Kyle. Still sending this guy's a star I mean look at follow on instagram. Friend Count Vic tweeted coups can wear the sweater with holes in. Again. We don't care. We were going to continue to stand for because this guy's in instagram model. He's got the confidence of a number one dude. So he's GonNa take shots like number one dude. So it's been a struggle for Kyle. Let's be honest this entire year to find his footing and to have that happen, it speaks to the power of coaching too because Frank Vogel when you'RE A. Coachee of choices to make choose who you want to start you choose how many minutes you guys are GonNa play you choose what type of offense you on Iran your day is constantly filled with choices. You hope as the leader of the team to make good ones, and then your players will follow suit. You can easily take in that moment to say Lebron James Best Player on the planet you. The last shot that's the way it goes I make that choice would have been a bad choice. Of course, not Lebron James Anthony Davis has been so under the microscope for the way he performs or lack thereof as performances in the fourth quarter maybe they take those last few seconds to run an ice Oh separate and get him a shot off to see if he can get some confidence. Going but no frank mogul made the conscious choice last night to draw up a play for Kyle Kuzma to build his confidence up to get him to feel a part of this whole laker run and it paid off in big ways. Now, Shack said something Greg last night in the broadcast afterwards that like Frank Vogel was a sobering kind of reminder of of there's still more work to be done. Shack it's very sensitive when you refer to Kyle Kuzma it's part of the big three. You think last night's shot kind of establishes Kyle as part of the Big Three in Los Angeles Greg. I mean, you would hope so but I still think that were it's GonNa be a different guy that's the third guy every single night I love with Kyle Kuzma has done in the bubble especially. But To call him a part of the big three I if that gets him as confidence and he's hitting eighteen to twenty points a game every night. Great and he goes there for that but he's not there yet. He is not the third wheel in the in the big three right now when he scores eighteen plus points there eleven in two when all three guys scored twenty plus points there two and one. So when he balls. Out They have success. So don't they need him to be the big through I? Mean he's the one he's the guy that's supposed to be I mean he was always from the beginning of training camp in the summer when he was in at Team USA, he was supposed to be the third guy on the big three but the inconsistency that he's the shown throughout the year as made it so that he hasn't been that guy. In the bubble I've actually been very impressed with him in hopefully because he doesn't have the pressure of playing in front of fans and what we're seeing with a lot of guys actually with TJ. Warren and Michael. Porter. Jr.. And calicoes mkhize that are just bawling out with nobody in front of with nobody behind them. Hopefully that's what's going on with him right now. So if you can be the third guy, let's I'm all for it gets back to choices because cows someone who's young he's in the limelight he's out there stars coups on the Graham is we get it right? It's OK having young young successful Los Angeles go out there and have a good time. But. The choices we make oftentimes is young men can define us for the rest of our lives or the choices we make. Now we have to, you know report we sell if you will. So Kyle by maybe being in a bubble environment some of the choices that he might make might be taken off the table. He doesn't have to make those choices anymore you just go play basketball and I think you're onto something and we've got a Hassen calling in a little bit later. Ben. Lines phone in for Sodano all week long here on ESPN LA except for Thursday because the Lakers have their final seating game of the arrogance, the the Sacramento Kings, and it's an early tip on Thursday. So no show for US Thursday. But I'm here all week and we're going to have a mean on the show and let's see if there's some truth to that theory Greg that guys are able to have sort of a different approach to the game by being the bubbles who are. Who The star players are, who the key players are, which teams have to feature and focus on certain guys. So of Kuzin was a bubble guy if he makes the all bubble team, that's only a good thing for the Lakers because Lebron talk about pressure Lebron had some some interesting quotes for a about Kyle Kuzma, and the role he has for this Laker team we'll get into that. Coming up a little bit later on in the show plus we're going to keep you posted on the status of college football as any at any moment. Now, the PAC twelve is expected to be releasing some type of statement about what they collectively do as a league out affects USC and Ucla of course, we'll get into all of it plus a tough night out at Dodgers Stadium Ben Line. Filling in for Sodano, on seven ten, Espn Ben Lyon here filling in First Sodano. ESPN radio is presented by Progressive Insurance Drivers who save with Progressive Save over seven hundred and fifty dollars on average call or click today and find out we could save you hundreds on your car insurance talking about Kuzin the big shot he at last night. I know sex with you guys a little bit. And Lakers despite ad listening to our show and coming out strong out of the gate clearly a loyal listener seventy ESPN because he heard US calling him out last night bawled out from the start. They still looked a little flat not gonNA lie. Let's nitpick a little bit right. We can wake up with a positive attitude or we can wake up when they did. They were good but so. A little bit of that and get some realism realism in here for a moment. Any Davis struggles with double teams. Doesn't he Greg Oh? Yeah. He's having some major issues with double teams where if once once a second guy comes on 'em, he kinda gets. A little jolted and he has these throwing balls out of bounds just turn the ball over. It's a it's a tough spot for him but I thought yesterday was actually their best offensive performance of the bubble and it wasn't even close. Yeah they look significantly better on offense last night so much more fluid and when guys are moving without the basketball cutting like they were, they're gonNA get easy shots. AC- dion waiters give them a little spark and that's all you need from a guy like that three shots in a row get them going twelve points keep moving. But AG. He so good Greg. He's one of the Great. If I came down like an eyeball alien tests, you'd be like that's one of the great athletes on planet earth. Let alone basketball players yet. He's takes two shots in the fourth quarter again and played thirty minutes. So what why can't I just grabbed him and shake him and say, Yo, get it together do. Well also thinking about this on the box score yeah. It says he had to shots and we were talking about this before the show also, but he had he had six foul shots and then he went five or six from the free throw line. So to get to the free throw line, you gotta be putting up a shot to get. Vowed well said so that's more than the two shots he's actually having. So in that case, there's six that's at least five shots and he put up seven points. So at least that's he's hitting his foul shots in those in those situations and getting to the rim. Defense to the defense is going to be there for them. We know it is there such a long team versatile team defense is not something that that is a great concern on this team because despite not having Rondo and Bradley, they're able to provide somebody different matchups. Danny Green is such a versatile defender. You're right. The offense is kinda flowing and humming last night, and it's a testament to Kyle Kuzma I mean I'm. Not The only one who thinks that I mean Lebron James spoke after the game about just how important he is to this team the future success they WANNA have a deep October now, and here's what Lebron had to say about cooed, you said that year that you've got Communism coups what his rolling under Steve is all what are you made a displayed in the bubble and how do you think that could change things? As. You get into the post again. I think the best thing about the I guess the time that we had office has got an opportunity healthy. You know he was hampered with his foot injury ankle injury throughout the season. So he was always playing catch up a lot of stuff to give healthy and. A lot of work. Is. This confidence is. Soaring. Some go ball but more importantly defensively just been locked the and you know and just take a challenge on any given night. No matter for his. Opponent or anyone escorted it doesn't matter. He's taking the challenge in essence step in the right direction of his growth. Mike sure on the question there too and and you know it's it's so true kyle is is growing right in front of us. She had so much success early on while the team was struggling. But now on your contributing team competing for championship, it's a whole other level of expectations, the whole set of pressures that you have to deal with responsibilities and. These are the moments we talk about it a lot with bad scenes, but his applicable for good teams, you have to have moments throughout the season that you can point to and rally around and despite the success that they've collectively had as a group in terms of amassing a number of wins. If you. Look at a couple of the big moments throughout the year. Little bit of a letdown I mean you know let's let's take everything the court side but just in terms of the actual basketball first night of the year, they get pounced by the Clippers they lose on. Christmas to the clippers some of the big moments you know some of the matchups, maybe not as as exciting as it could've played out. But so they get a big emotional win and jared Greenberg from TNT did a great job on the broadcast I thought he. was talking about how this group in particular is struggling with chemistry in the bubble and Greg you're saying the younger guys the sort of. Second Tier Players Tj Warren's if you will seem to having more individual success in above all maybe than some of the more established star players and I think maybe that's the reason why is that that? Bubble life plays to a younger more AAU tournament style kind of a guy. WHO's not as far removed from the basketball camp life is as somebody who has a father who has businesses or investments, or as distractions off the court they have to attend to between their basketball obligations during the bubble I might be the theory. Yeah I mean it's a pretty good theory too because like look if you're watch everybody follows NBA bubble life right on twitter that has all its showing his all these guys they're they're either golfing or they're going fishing or their shot gunning beers. But you don't really see the older guys doing those types of things. So they're all just kind of comfortable they go. They go out they do their thing to go practice and all it is just them on the court. So it's they can. They're much more free and not really thinking about anything else that's happened because they don't have to because they don't have all those things you're talking about businesses the big families. All what other distractions that you have outside of the bubble so it's interesting I mean if you put together a all NBA team of just all NBA bubble team. The big names are probably not really there. Well, let's put together be a bubble team throughout the show because you got me no hasn't come on at ten forty and he'll have some names obviously to add to that as well. So you start to put together some some bubble folks bubble all-stars. It's fine on the post game. They're saying nobody cares the bubble MVP is nobody cares if you're all bubble at so lame but it's not for these Lakers for cow Koussa his resurgence bubble. Is Power around for them to win a championship. They needed him to have a good seating couple of games to find his footing in Lebron said get healthy but being about this. Okay. So you're Lebron James you've got responsibility of leading your team being this sort of yard for the NBA players in a lot of ways You're this symbol of of greatness for all witness. You're more than an athlete you're taking on voter suppression father. He's got a guard Yokich she's doing everything. And so after the game. You got to answer questions about Dwayne Wade unbuttoned shirt and his. His Eddie Murphy Raw. That he put together on TNT and then you have to answer this question about Kyle, Kuzma shooting over Jesus. drive the incident question. Who Confident competent? Count, young man and. I'm having Marcet you have that confidence in In. Goes on spikes. He's worth a lot like I said. He's still young. Crazy is only in his third year but. I'm better is starting to slow down. He's starting to see a game at a at a pace works not only for himself, but works for our team but. no-confidence player and you gotTa have compass. Go take a shower light debt. Is Always have that confidence? Is he starting to earn your confidence? Not just yours you know his teammates competency. Norfolk Championship yesterday Arthur. Best Player and Bob Shogun or eighty struggle and our second best player. Any given night I mean, it's just We can't. We can't win a championship doesn't play well. We can't win a championship if clues doesn't play well deadlines filling in for Sodano let's Lebron James talking last night after the Lakers big one twenty, four, one, twenty, one, win over the Denver Nuggets who had kind of an interesting approach to the fourth quarter Greg had early success in the game for Michael Porter, Jr., Jim, Murray who I love and Kinda put on the tier of Mike Conley. Point. Guards very, very good solid guy. Bowl. Bowl is looking like John elway out there throwing passes like never seen before Yokich none of the starters played in the fourth quarter last night. But yet I'm not sitting here today saying that doesn't mean that the what the Lakers did was impressive. They're just on different time line and have a different strategy then what the Lakers were hoping to accomplish out of last night, but the young nuggets did not back down at all I'm. Super, impressed by Bulbul, you are shocked that Anthony Davis didn't just take you right through the young kid. Yeah I was I was sitting there the whole time being like look. It's Bowl Bowl Anthony Davis just get the ball. It's not. You're not going up against against Yokich or even Paul millsap about these big bodies it's this teeny it's like this been deuce any. Tall very tall very tall. Sorry. He's this song of. The Bowl he comes from basketball blocking shots royalty. Right. But he's also seven to like one, sixty five. So I mean the dude is very, very thin. If if you're if you're Anthony Davis and you have a guy, that's one, sixty, five, which I don't know. Guard you. Being generous you might be. Sixty five. In and out of the bubble. You should be taking it to the rim like showing him like a man get your and you'd like to block shots but I'm Anthony Davis I can I can get through anybody I'm getting through Paul Millsap I'm getting through Yokich with with that with ease you've got nothing on me and they All Ball, he's back. That's what makes that Kyle crews Mashad even knowledge more impressive is you've got it over Bowl Bowl seven-foot. AIDS. Coming at him so. A reminder to. I hate the phrase stay in your lane because of the origins from when it came from Lavar being mean to Christine on that show in the whole thing, I just don't like the concept of it but the idea of. You have work in front of you do your work focus on your job. What your collective group is doing and try to put blinders onto what everybody else is doing because if the Lakers had. Paid attention to the fact that the nuggets weren't playing their star players last night maybe they take the foot off the gas a little bit. Maybe they don't take that confidence that they get from that Kyle Kuzma shot with them to the next game because they say, well, it wasn't against the guys know stay in your lane senior time on your focus do what you gotta do run a great play at the end of the game you draw up for coups and I'm so impressed with Frank Vogel and the outcome of that game last night a huge Laker win if not. Arguably. The biggest win of the season for emotional reasons, and we'll get into some of that next plus we got me now. Hacen. Coming up on the show lots to get into on a Tuesday is Ben Lyons filling in for Sodano. This is seven seventy, SPN. Ben. Line filling in for George ESPN La. As always ESPN radio presented by progressive insurance guests. Appear. Via the shell. Pennzoil performance. Line. I Love Baseball Trivia this time of year, and sadly we lost someone Greg Carroll Hardy was. Carol hiring don't died on August nine Carroll Hardy. The only player to pinch hit for Ted Williams Carl Yastrzemski, and Roger Marris. s impressive for a now guy or Schmil journeyman. If you will. You Pitch Hits for Ted Williams Collier's shrimps and Roger Merson was a former San Francisco forty niners carroll hardy. Gone on August ninth Saturday announced that put but happy to learn about his life and his career. So I, love those little nuggets about the game. We're GONNA try to sleep in a few more throughout the show speaking of of random players and players outperforming their names if you will talk to me about some of the names coming up on our ESPN LA twitter. Yes. At Espn, Los Angeles for who the bubble MVP's are because we got our who the all bubble team is because we got some interesting names. So all bubble tea this is from starfish and coffee who love show always on says. Pascal, Siachen but I mean he's really good player just General Devon Booker another really great player but it has been fantastic TJ warren of visas zoo boss who has Basically been perfect or close to perfect in the bubble. And James Harden, I, think I would add Michael Porter Jr. in there somewhere. Right. I mean again Michael Porter Jr. does look like he was part of like the Cobra Kai. He was averaging like seven points before the bubble and now he's now he's around like thirty. It's told us that he was trying to steal nick cannon's girlfriend drumline or something I believe. That's the perfect role. I could absolutely see that. While the drumming on the. Mock. Totally got his letterman jacket on. He's like a big scar. Like the guy that like will smith would be with on the fresh France or something it looks like Michael Quarter Junior. You're like he's the from the years three thousand. Love that he really let me get a picture because honesty's haircut is on some future things like with lines it looks like in the movie demolition man he'd be. Silenced Phoenix is like like like henchman or something. That he doesn't even talk though. Phoenix attachment. Doubt she lies and demolition. He's a featured player and drumline and mighty ducks five. He's like one of the biggest. Iceland's return kind of. Totally. Interesting store fourteenth pick in the draft image. The Knicks. Cut Adam Got Kevin Knox. Happy Twenty first birthday to that guy today. But yes. Please I mean Michael Porter Jr., clearly coming into the league with some the prove and had injury stuff and saying with bowl bowl I mean it goes to show you roll the dice in. You take a chance on these kids they might pan out but. Even Bowl Bowl like you're saying like, yes, he is not as as. Physically developed as hopefully he will be later in his career I almost feel like you can be too tall in basketball. Like there's a reason why historically very few players north of seven one have been truly elite. Because they're always way too thin. I mean Shawn. Bradley was one of those guys manute bol even though he was a great shop locker was still you know Overly. Thin. It didn't really last all that long. So yeah. If you if you don't put on a little bit of weight that's GonNa who was it was it was it reggie was shack that we're talking about how he looks like he could be pretty good. He's got to put on sixty. pounds. Sixty. What are you GonNa do is GonNa eat burgers all day and sandwiches and Kinney's twenty years old and to see some of those passes and just to watching dribble the ball up the floor last night and put it through his legs you like Oh, my God. Is this the future basketball but besides durant porzingus other than that one, you're north of seven feet my you know you become kind of more of a one dimensional player Mark Eaton shocked blocker Y'all had success but I mean George near son Boban you're kind of stuck bowl bull last night was just like really fun to watch and was just Man I'm I'm all in on that guy a lot higher than you art sounds like. Well that's down by any means he actually did he has a good three point shot. He's got great passing abilities. He actually does have handled, which was pretty interesting to see but I mean he's still pretty young. I, think he's still any way too thin I think is inside are gonna eat him alive which I thought Anthony Davis, should have been able to do. Now I look great and I joke and say he was listening to our show because yesterday Greg said I would've loved to come on with you and then like hey, eighties the MVP back is incredible. He's the man and I'm I'm probably would have led the show that way had coups not hit that shot and stepped up the way did because ad really did look fantastic for the first three quarters last night even glimpses in the fourth but really to start the game was as if you're listening to join the put back dunk to at the end of the half I mean that's the Alpha, the aggressor you WanNa, see it in him can he can he? Bring that out during this postseason run we'll obviously find out but you had to be excited about seeing what he did last night to start the game. Oh Yeah I mean did you there was one play where? Michael. Porter Jr. was going up for a don for A. Dunk and ad jumped up, grabbed it with two hands. Shouted out. Got It to. Ron. And then he came all the way up floor headed got into the three point line did a little pump fake and went right into into the basket and scored. So it was just a great offense of and defensive play all at the same time. That's the aggressive. Anthony. Davis. That you need to see game in and game out in the playoffs. I understand what's going on Right now in the bubble. But if you can have that guy game in and game out then I, it's going to be very difficult to get past this Laker team. Yeah. Now, that was one place particular to I've felt like it was a video game glitch when you try and throw out your video games, it's really hard. Usually they get snatched out of the air by a guy like that and that's what she did on that play but while we're all excited. About coups today, and we're all looking forward to seeing his Laker postseason Ron something else popped out last night that I am concerned about with this Laker team and it's once again the bench play being inferior to their opponents. That's the strength, the clippers, their deeper than the lanker than the Lakers they might not have the length size, but they definitely have the numbers over a long seven game series physical series that's GonNa come into play especially role players who oftentimes. Don't perform on the road in the playoffs will be that much more important. I think is in bubble setting Greg's been talking about how the Middle Tier guys have been able to excel. So I would say the clippers have superior Middle Tier guys in the Lakers last night the Denver Nuggets Bench Denver Still Without Will Barton without Gary. Harris. They've got some guys injured. They're throwing random guys out there their bench played the entire fourth quarter and looked really good last night. I still if I'm fine tuning and tweaking and nitpicking this number one seeded La Laker team, it's GonNa have to the To have some rest going into the playoffs next week. I would still pause for concern from the bench production, which is why Kouzmines performance and why he needs to stay on the bench is so so important for this team because if you're relying on Dion Waiters Dwight Howard and Jr Smith and what other cast-offs you can, you can mention from this team jared, Dudley will not convinced his better than me than I think you guys are going to have a problem on your hands. So the bench is still something to focus on which gives us focus for the game Thursday. Again, a testament to Frank Vogel for maximizing time in the bubble trying to get something out of this limbo time. I am not going on a limb here by saying I've doubt Labron or Anthony Davis sees any serious action on Thursday you're going to be seeing Dwight and JR jared, Dudley and the bench, and they'll use that as a tune-up game. So taking advantage of the opportunities and the moments presented to you. All right. We gotTA menial housing coming up at ten forty who as you guys know is a big. Star Wars Fan apparently Laura. I'm finding out. You know nothing about Star Wars I never been a star wars person I the right that a Disney but other than that. nope. They've done a really nice job with the Rides Disney that New Millennium Falcon is. But Wha- what's the plot of Star Wars Laura? Somewhere somewhere in the sky. No clue. I really don't wear somewhere in the sky. It's time. Time Melody. I mean, that's all I. Read your daughter Star Wars. Somewhere somewhere in the sky destroyed is not what you're looking for. Saddam Hussein would it be so? mattering. Curious to hear how need is able to explain to Laura the plot of Star Wars as well as talk about Kyle Kuzma and I wanna get to Laura's headlines because guys were on this text message chain sitting in for George this week and you know we're talking about stories and we're watching the games last night the stories that Laura fines in the news are fascinating. So we need to dedicate segments Laura's headlines that say we'll do that at eleven thirty Kazaa. What's in your Google search, but it's definitely different than mine. right amino acid. When we return Ben Lines phone emphasis Donna Seven, Seventy Espn Sodano show rolls on Ben Lines voted for George Pennzoil synthetic motor oils are made from natural gas. It gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is independent oil based on sequence for a test using s e five W. Thirty. Ben. Lines flown in for Sodano on the phone by amino acid not only is an expert in all things hoops but also loves the world of Star Wars knows today that President Clinton's birthday. So I'm sure he celebrating in style. Amine. Works on her show doesn't know what Star Wars is about. Can you explain the plot of the movie Sir? No Wow No, I can't. It's because I told you what it's about. It probably make sense. It's. It's it. I mean, what is it about like if you look at it what what star was actually about the life of skywalker. The rise and fall skywalker but I think if you pulled like thousands of dollars and get my something different about Luke skywalker. Oh, it's about the fight of good versus evil. Oh, it's a fight off. You know you underdog versus the overwhelming favorite and I, guess all those answers are chew in some. Shape or form, but to me, it's the. Story of Antica. Style Walker. Guy Who is incredibly gifted and was Deduced by the dark side and became a bad dude and then. Ultimately was redeemed on his deathbed because redemption is never too late for any of us is I guess what I would call goes. Well And I think Laura can identify that. There are some things in there that we can take apply to our own wives where, for example, if we're looking at the story of the Lakers, some people might think it's the story of Lebron. James. In your seventeen, will he be able to rise above the haters and still have the skills to win one more or is it anthony? Davis proving that he is an Alpha and can lead a team to a championship or as we saw last night mean is it the story of Kyle Kuzma and can this man be consistent and a legitimate member of a big three to win a title? What can we take away from coups last night? I if the story of LAKER missions in big trouble. Rather really. The Lakers is the story of how could coming into his own. That's a little scary but got said better than me. He doesn't play a part right and maybe even a major part and you know part of that is his aggressiveness on the Pentagon. But also part of that is is what appears have been renewed vigor on the defensive end at least what we've seen here in the bubble and ultimately to me that the stuff that's going to keep them on the floor and allowing all the offense and stuff all because his ability to guard people is potential guard people should say is gives Frank Vogel a lot of flexibility with lineups. particularly. As we all imagined at some point or another Lakers are going to have to go to a small lineup with Anthony Davis at the five and so clueless as ability to play the four and more importantly defend after four is going to be critical to that. Amino hasn't joining the show Ben Lines tune in for George, Sodano seven, ten espn don't forget this season hard knocks will follow two teams the Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles chargers watched the premiere tonight at ten PM HBO and streaming on Hbo Max. If we could follow the Lakers around the bubble over there too often as a mean, would we be? Would we see them playing ping pong together and playing cornhole against the Dallas Mavericks and barbecuing or because this is an older veterans team are the guys off in their own silos doing their own thing and not really that communal time you'd think to make bonds in the bubble. Funny Given Brown felt if he's taught him I, go today about. Just from a mental peace of mind aspect you need to disconnect is an the bubble mates are hard to disconnect hard to leave work behind. Most of the time time, you leave the leaning practice facility. You come home in your home runs to deal with anybody from work and I have to do anything work-related as long as I'm home. Now they're kind of surrounded by twenty, four, seven and and. Like some days you Donovan Mitchell. Donnas guy were friends I. Don't WanNa see anymore. I. Wanna I WANNA be alone. And so I imagine. you know the Lakers obviously. Seventeen. Very different agendas, I imagine cost of for instance, and probably hanging out with his brothers. You don't get to do that on a regular basis meanwhile i. can feel Lebron. Yeah. Like sitting in his. Portrait at the top speed mountaineer. His hotel. Unlike was being alone catching and disconnect is going to everybody. And that's why I think last night was so important for this team because it's something they can rally around together as a group and you see them celebrating and having fun and bringing joy to this very stressful, an uncomfortable, an unusual situation. Jr Smith poured water on. The. Guy Loves porn stuff on people's heads The be cared would never never confirmed that it was over the head. Guy When they won the title out Vegas you got you last night. God's loves it. What says league my emotions better than pouring liquid as Lamont. But do you see that joy from that Laker team and do you feel like it's kind of a I don't know a release in some ways because they are under so much pressure they are in this unusual environment. So to see them rally around one of their role players kind of help give them a lift I would imagine going into the postseason. Ben With before the shutdown I would've said that the Lakers were one of the strongest chemistry. When or teams that really did seem to get along and and like he genuinely off the court and and it kind of bled over into the play and You Know I. Obviously, it's a lot harder to tell these things from. Outside the bubble but. It doesn't seem as harmonious. As they were earlier this year maybe that's just because they haven't been playing that. Well. No you're absolutely right and I I was more confident for their chances going into the bubble than I have been watching them perform during the bubble however last night. Just a real a real big win I think for this group heading into the postseason in a reminder that some of the players are the ones who are really shining in the bubble greg and I've been putting together an all bubble team, some of the names that have really popped out as some of the all stars at the bubble if you will for you. It definitely starts tweeted Warren. Moon. Spectacular last night notwithstanding and. That is opportunity He's always been a very gifted score the differences he's getting more opportunities more listen, and obviously there's a lot more attention in the bubble where pretty much every game. Almost every game nationally televised game now Devon Booker has been sensational for Phoenix undefeated, but he he himself as played out of his mind Let's see who else I'm trying I'm drawing a blank share. A lot of a lot of a lot. Of Oakwood Georgia. Oh. Chris Yoga you know what? I hope he gets with. He's been a favorite of wine ever since he was on that delete selecting that beat Team USA and then they ran it back in the USA. Harder. The second dominant I'll you know I like to do. So, I think of a big fan of. Michael Porter Jr. who I was saying little she's a one of the bad guys in the Cobra Kyle up which eighties nineties movie. Do you think Michael Porter Jr. Started? On you got to strike kidding. Chris your he's he's guy he's a kid when the kidney. Old Census see the legs because. He's he's on the talking to begrudgingly Daniela Russo has earns respect I I think. Something good karate kid for because he's got the haircut you gotTA. Karate Kid DOJ Joel kids haircuts. Strong so strong purported looking like he's when the year three thousand live you with this I mean was giving us the straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless no contract. No promise I've Laura has to go home tonight and Watch One Star Wars movie. What's the one to watch? Again like this, this is complicated I to me. I've I would say in parasites bag the lights she won't know anybody because everything was established in the first aisle was a new hope. So I would say watch that one but then I would also argue that one. Over time has held up, they leave the worst out of all of them. Something that you could just watch one it's not like Indiana Jones. And call me later. It's one of the things that you win or you're not in and and that's when I was when people say Yeah I've never watched star wars at my guy you know school I might be too late to. Yeah. Yeah Laura's definitely got our work cut out for her. She's GonNa keep up with you appreciate the insight buddy. Thanks for checking in be well. Nobody? third-level. Amine Alhassan joining the show. He's absolutely right about Michael Porter Jr. being the guy on the Cobra Kai who has earned the respect and afterwards, you can tell yet he's bad but you could tell there something better in his heart and that's what I think. He'll think Michael. Porter. Jr. I'm Hey, the dodgers lost the baseball game but I'm not freaking out get into that next ten ESPN.

What was the highest winter for the year the highest one time now you're already know sixty eight DEMARCO far? You're now sixty eight fifty betting it's the greatest seventy three the walkie at fifty seven fifty seven games top of the N._B._A.. Charlotte Hornets down at twenty four. We're the Lakers fondness list on the Lakers are at fifty I believe one and a half fifty fifty and a half so yes perfect their butts fifth-most wins in this they are five five games back of the clippers clippers are fifty five and a half now. I never understand with Vegas because there's always always alterior motors trying to get you to play your money and they know that they're on the west coast and more laker fan so there's something I always with the Lakers and the action in Vegas but it is all that they have four or five teams ahead of them in the western conference. Well you know you probably factoring in Vegas. Maybe factoring in Load Management for Anthony Davis Lebron James. There's lot of new moving parts on this team like last year you have all these new players that they have to incorporate and on top of that they have a new head coach with a coaching staff that he is not familiar with all of them have to get to know each other very fast with a trip to China China in between all of that so you could see how the Lakers could potentially you know have a little bit of a rocky start or mentioned what could possibly go wrong <hes> when when you management how long has that been around for load manage lower manage started last year was coined last year who who who coined the phrase Lebron Lebron Kawai it started with Hawaii I think but I think it started with the first time I actually remember hearing of it was when Lebron sat out at Golden State and I and all of a sudden it was load manager after he came back from there but I believe low management comes from quiet. It's funny how fast things become like so normal now now. Everybody knows that the water cooler slowed managed within the the idea though that they will have to load manage Lebron in year seventeen A._d.. Now in your eight do you give them nights off independently. Yes I think the Lakers and Lebron and a DIS squad and team they are going to figure <music> out a plan and it's going to they probably will have to try to figure out on independent nights. This isn't going to be like San Antonio Spurs where everybody sets out in certain nights love the upsets to commission. That's the way to do that. That's the way pop chose to do. It take on Saturday night when they were supposed to be on T._v.. Televised let's sit down city and Tony Parker. Let's put in Ben Answer questions with a straight face. There's some consideration like do they do it at home or on the road and I think they're like Lebron is actually very good about this. He takes into consideration knowing that when he goes on the road their kids at bought tickets you know the parents so they could watch implies especially the Eastern Conference Games where you know you only come in one time but the idea idea that all right realistically I think Lakers fans can expect Lebron James Your hope or Lebron James to play at this point seventy two games seventy seven. I'll say seventy two games right if you're Laker fan and you tell me the in June. I say you got seventy two regular season Games outta Lebron. You gotta be accurate caveat. They're like okay seventy games but you'll be in the thick of the playoff just talking for the load manage because that's seventy game seventy two again same for a D. eighty seven in your career. He's averaged sixty six games a year because he's had some injuries. His injuries aren't as number refund on the ticket when they don't play no. Oh seventy gay spend money at seventy games right. Well wow so I think all A._D.. Played seventy five games two years in a row prior to this last season when he had the whole little trade hiccup and all that stuff so end look when I ask a D. about load management. I really wasn't asking him personally. I just said hey what is low Benjamin media. This big trend the N._B._A.. And then he took it personally and was like Oh. I'm I'm going to play. I'm going to play eighty two games well but look are going to say no. You got seventy five regular season games. You're pretty happy Oh yeah so of those seven in the overlap with Lebron tend to find happiness though to me I don't mind if he plays seventy games or even sixty five as long as you make the playoffs and he's ready to go comply off time fernow. You're playing sixty five games Lebron Sixty Five A._D.. That's tough 'cause they're either missing the Games together or they're not on the Florida yet and that's the whole point was. That's that's where Kyle Kuzma has to be huge to season because healthy yes. He's the one guy that's the young legs on this team gene that's going to be the guy is going to have to carry them on certain nights. You know what I mean. He's he's got to be more than just the the number three guy. He's he's GonNa have to be. The Guy is going to be the number one guy on some nights when Lebron eight era listen sixty five. You're planning you know sixty if I gave Lebron is sixty five games A._D.. Reason why Toronto Raptors success last year during load management because they won those games when those when he was out they were seventeen in four so one of those games they obliterated the Lakers at staples on Sunday afternoon. I remember that so it's a lot of trust though you know I was thinking about the other A._D.. In town and I wouldn't be surprised if the rams started to take care of him a little bit you WanNa make sure you maximize his his longevity so at some point you might see him on the bench for an extended period and but you have to trust in the guy that's on the field not just the coaches the player because if it starts to sag he's going to trot his but right back on the field so same both abroad you have to have a guy like Kyle Kuzma who's who can carry the team or guess what he's not going to sit. He's going to play eighty two because he wants to win. WHO's the guy for the rams that if Aaron Donald does such explosive load management or they do take off office series or two or a players who is that WHO's the cow who's into this is funny situation? I don't know there's a competition greg gains. They just drafted Sebastian. Joseph Day didn't play a snap all season. They're expecting a lot out of them. We haven't seen it so so that guy has yet to reveal himself so we'll see stuff you can look for into preseason but this is what I'm talking about like when he does take himself out if he feels like I need a blow and runs to the sideline you he has to trust the guy that's going in to. At least I keep it. Even you know what I mean or he's going to run his but back on the field got to be honest. I saw the video of Aaron Donald working our their shirt stand at the Mamba Academy. Get it yeah guys not taking any Jeff Saturday Jeff Saturdays. A former senator loved the guy. We have some mutual friends. He said he's going to be the M._V._p.. For the next three years aeronautical <hes> and it's hard for me to disagree I don't see anybody close at all the same run dominance that you saw Lebron when he was head and shoulders above everyone in basketball the best player player on the planet. I don't see anyone drafted or playing right now. That could really block him one on one who do you compare them to among the all time greats John Randall John Randall Warren Sapp. I mean any sort of dominant interior your your guy but this is on a whole different level. Eric Henderson is their new D. Line coach. I think he's got the toughest job in the world. You're coaching a guy that's coming off a twenty and a half sack season and your job is to make him better how no one's been that high from that spot. You know what I mean yeah. How do you make that guy better? It's hard so yeah I mean load management and making sure Lebron A._D.. Taking those days off you have to make sure that the guy like you said if it's Kyle Kuzma is capable enough to carry the team or they're not going to sit and that's GonNa make everything or you have like you know. Remember the giants <hes> back in the day. You should have pass rusher after passer show at the pass rusher rotate them in yeah. You know what I mean. You just have a rotation of guys I would say this. If you could find a way to limit Aaron Donald's rundowns you know take take five or six first downplays away from him. Let the rookie take the pounding. If the rookie does well great so now you're passing situation. Put Ninety nine back in the game but let the young kid earning but if you're down if you're up obviously you want your best playmakers on the field but she want them to be as great as they can for as long as they can so part of that has to do with what's the phrase load management coming soon to the N._F._l.. Management Talk coming up next how ties into all this N._F._l.. Stuff plus demarcus GONNA explain this justice from email. Thanks Dude you. Justice memo really Bagel Legal Guy Bagel boss Guy Yes.

That's up Mateen cleaves the car. Whatever that squad changed Robert tractor-trailer and also to Chris Webber wouldn't associated himself with the by for a long time you know so now with John Howard he's like the anchor of all all those guys and they have so much respect for him so that's why he's GonNa?

It reminds you that they're people walking around and live in their lives out there with so much anger and so much tension and frustration that in the one little thing happens bowl they just go off really scary isn't that there's not enough time in your life to to really Kinda. Hold that much anger inside of you and if and if somebody you're with who makes you that angry we don't need to be with that person. Oh what did he do. I do know this was not something that happened right then. This was build up for her to react like that. This has been going on for a while regardless of that type of rage yeah now. It looks like sometimes it just takes a very little thing the trigger somebody sometimes it can be very controlling. I've certainly been with my share of ex-girlfriends. Who've been crazy like you don't know something the this hand and his hair saying right see a good guy writing for the wrong guy? Thank you gentlemen for exposing such culture to speed read Ben Lines don hanging out with over DeMarco e._S._p._N.. E._S._P._N. L._A.. Van Lines filling in for Sodano to Marco far from Oh. Oh my friend Reef beat friend reef made this beat. I really WANNA get into the big news of the day obviously with you DEMARCO. You are all things L._A.. Rams Sean McVeigh less need signing up for four more years and winning football hopefully here in Los Angeles agreeing to extensions in two thousand twenty three terms of the deals not yet disclosed but knowing that Sean McVeigh has never been out of first place in his six hundred plus days since being the rams head coach. This is a great move and I'm excited. It's a no brainer right. I mean you you have to get it done. We were talking about this when I guess right in the middle of talking about Todd Gurley and his knee injury is really really hurt or what and then jared Goff getting paid thirty some odd million bucks and I'm thinking okay you have to think of your head coaches well to write. This guy has earned it so at some point. You'RE GONNA wind up extending him. I'm glad we're not talking numbers. I'm glad this thing didn't turn ugly. You know what I mean that both sides were were amicable what they offered and what he took were commensurate and less need is is tied into it you know for the most part with Gray Robinson aside. I think less need has drafted a fantastic football team really built a great foundation for success and I think they've really taken advantage of that rookie contract. Contract for your quarterback. You're able to have a blank check for the rest of the football team because your quarterback is on the cheap and by the time that you have to pay him. He's ready to take over as as a franchise quarterback I think you're just about their jared goff so they have played this thing perfectly. In my opinion I still think schedule and I think people forget that we are also excited. They made it to the Super Bowl. We'll so excited at Fisher left and they became a real football team and went to the playoffs in that second year but this is only year four and just this show up in town and all of a sudden be deep into the playoffs deepen January. Every year we started to take for granted around here feels good well. I mean you're going to have to ask them highs and I think you're living the high right now. You're almost there. You almost beat the Patriots you almost have the chance to come back as is defending champs at some point. Every franchise is going to go through a low and going through a low here is a nightmare. You know what I mean because when you're not winning in Los Angeles it's really really tough relevant real absolutely so to make sure you pat yourself. When you you do hit a low make sure your highs are high and when you have a good team a good nucleus and you're on a good role you supplement that for as long as you can was how many more years were on his deal? Is he coming up on. I think he had to more to go. It's interesting this. This is his third season coming up. Yeah it's interesting. You never have coaches. Hold out. No I mean they've ever coach no but I mean not have that no not at all but some coaches I mean they do raise a stink when they start talking about their own contract. It's pretty much such a bad situation. Anyway never got that far then. You're seeing a guy who's got two years left on his deal. In Anthony Davis demand for trade. See Guy was two years left on his deal Ezekiel Elliott decide to hold out. I he's running by the way Steve. Kerr didn't like the Anthony Davis that yeah yeah expound on that a little bit we have a sound familiar receive curves talking about the Anthony Davis contract and yeah. I think basically he was just like it's not a good precedent for the N._B._A.. When you have a star who's under CONTRACT CONTRACT FORCE A train his Steve Talking about as a former player I I always sort of <hes> lean towards player empowerment? You know guys you know who have earned their right to free agency. If they WANNA WANNA make a move and then you know make a move to their own careers. I'm Bob. I'm all for it <hes>. They've earned that right. <hes> my only issue is Linda player. WHO's under contract? <hes> decides not to honor the contract <hes>. I think that's a that's a problem and that's something that could really affect the league. I think <hes> you know I think there's a way to to move and there's a way to not move and <hes> you know one Lebron. Did you know played out his contract. <hes> what what Kevin did <hes> you know. Both twenty arrived in Golden State when he left <hes> you know you signed contracts you <hes> you play them out and you move on <hes>. That's how it should be done but a little disturbing that verstehen some movement you know kind of you know some some action that's happened before. Contracts are up where teams are sort of held hostage in the League is sort of felt hostage. I'm not a big fan of that. I think that's damaging for everybody. That's coach Steve Kerr on the Golden State Warriors Insider podcasts talking about the Anthony Davis Trade and here's somebody just in speak so candidly about another player on another team well yeah. I mean well coming from where he's at. He's a head coach and I I love Steve Kerr. He speaks his mind and he's usually on point. Do we not forget. There's been a history of stars who tried to force trades throw. It doesn't matter what generation that is. You know like I cover. Jason Kidd New Jersey toward the end. He wanted to try enforced trade out eventually he did. He was traded to Dallas. There's always players that end up at requesting trades now. It's whether or not that team wants honored or not you know what I mean and if that player then becomes a headache and enforces is way out and then so be but this happened throughout the test time well. Is it trade me out of here or now. It seems like I can pick my spot yeah. You know what I'm saying. I think it might be anywhere but here loss angeles. Kyra kept me out right yeah Anthony. Davis said he wanted to go to Los Angeles but look New Orleans was going to look into trading him. Other places turns David Griffin you know worked along with with Los Angeles and got got a huge hall for that but I mean you you know look at Paul George Right Paul George traded to Lakers in the Indiana decided to trade into Oklahoma City. They're gonNA take the best package possible so it doesn't mean like if you asked for trade. You're going to get exactly what you wanted. Just happen to happen this summer to mean and Janas honest talked to be honest like two weeks ago about this like it's crazy. It's like one guy says I want to be treated exactly to the spot and it's happening and he's like I'm all for player empowerment. He's like but it is crazy what's happened. That's not cool for the League of you. I agree with him there. If you can't hold all these guys who their contracts and what power do you have over them but go ahead. I'm going to say I mean contracts are guaranteed correct <hes> so they can't dump you like they can in the N._F._l.. No matter what the content big difference between the N._F._l.. In the N._B._A. is that basically in the N._F._l.. Players there's a paranoid culture because they don't have guaranteed contracts can don't you want to whereas players in the N._B._A.. They're like their own corporations. They're not scared of the coach not scared of the general manager because they have their own money so if I have you under contract and you can still I got I got you for two more years and you can still find a way out of town N._S.. Look look if I have a powerful agent and I say I WANNA be traded to Washington and play for the wizards. It doesn't mean that that might teams no trade. If you have the right agent you can make that happen. That's what it seems like possible but also to this helps teams. <hes> Steve Kerr doesn't realize what is a D do does. He say that you know the PELICANS company. 'em Hey thinking about staying well. Let's just see let's just wait it out and then they waited out in the lead gets gets nothing nothing. The PELICANS get nothing so it's great. That guy is upfront about what he wants to do. It's oems points been going on for years not only with the star players oftentimes. It's a role player a malcontent someone who thinks their star but is not look look like like Steve Kerr's point. Is You signed a contract with the team honor it like I when I covered the nets early on they signed Alonzo Mourning in free agency Alonzo Mourning got there and then all of a sudden the team was sold and all the sudden the new owner who came in wanted to do everything on the cheap and not content anymore and so he didn't Wanna pay Kenyon Martin a huge extension especially because can you had knee issues while Alonzo mourning then said I think I didn't sign on for this. I signed to contend with with the team. That's what Jason Kidd Kinda convinced me to do so Alonzo mourning forced ads for trade and then wanted a buyout okay 'cause 'cause they weren't going to train so then they ultimately ended up finding a place for him. They made a trade for Vince Carter. Does that compared to the Pelicans where were they were. They D- I thought they were trying to contend or were they screwing that up to Anthony they did. They did have a team that made the playoffs and kind of pushed away a little bit that one year <hes> and then obviously last year the two years ago they they the upset Portland but Anthony Davis I think after why he he he wanted to complete with Lebron. That's it not in Los Angeles. Okay okay well. Let's you know what I mean. If you're in New Zealand's is just kind of like the same now they'd had demarcus cousins right but then demarcus gifts tours achilles and things started going downhill from New Orleans. None of these clouds seemed to be hanging over the rams. They've gotten girly paid. They've gotten donald paid. They got through Donald sitting out a camping girly thing okay the girly thing up in the air wait. That's a cloud well. It's clouded the results not in terms of it's not a lady L. Walking out. I don't think it's a health cloud. I think it's a forecast because we we don't know if he comes see. I think todd is going to have a great season but if he turns out this knee is worse than we thought then that's a cloud. That's a problem because you've already paid. It's a mistake but it's not the energy of him. Sitting is the Ezekiel Elliott Michael. Thomas could've got honey around. It could've ugly with Aaron Donald Except you're dealing with a professional rational. You know what I mean so they haven't had that situation. I don't think you're going to have that situation for Awhile Oh so let me let us get back to that so you're saying they're dealing with. The professional professional in that situation is Aaron Donald Yes oftentimes in these holdouts. You think the player is an acting professionally well. Sometimes sometimes I mean like let's take Melvin Gordon and I think Philip rivers just fired a shot you know towards his camp. The they've got several guys they can carry the rock for the chargers right so he's telling him hey look man. This is dangerous for you. It could be another John on Connor situation in Pittsburgh Bells out. They're supposed to go southwell connor steps in and has a great season so look whoever carries the rock for the chargers is going to have success. I think that's what you're saying here a player on that roster and Philip Rivers says that are you now because remember that that Pittsburgh situation it felt like it Kinda split the locker room of a little bit divided them a little bit if Philip Rivers says that he doesn't sound like he's on Melvin Gordon side and this this hold out is a whole locker room GonNa just go behind Philip rivers. They have all right well. He's the leader he's right. I mean he's the thing that makes it go but that's not good for Melvin Gordon. He's I think he's just trying to do the guy a solid. Hey man look together. We can do a lot of things but even without you. I'm still going to have success. He was doing a Masala. He would say well the organization we really need him. They should pay him true through like maybe on bell right sitting out. He actually what he did. Sign took less money so this whole thing he saved himself a year football but he's making less money than what they offered in Pittsburgh so he lost on that front. We're going to get more to the to the <hes> status of a couple of guys holding out in camp including Levy on bells La- last year but this year it's Ezekiel Elliott Michael Thomas and a bunch of other guys Melvin Gordon of course and we WanNa talk about football because we love football. We know you love football. I know Demarco you love the beach. Sh you love the rum. Dang right your whole bound you love Europe.

We're talking about some of the holdouts around the League Melvin Gordon here in town of course it'll be Wagner's Seattle. How do you make Bobby Wagner wait for his money Bobby Wagner in your by the way the N._F._l.? Always at odds with itself because the guys WanNa get paid for okay do in the future they done in the past right Sean McVeigh like we can't do that in the future Sean McVeigh offensive coach. Yes fair enough perception. Pete Carroll is a defensive minded coach. Your best player is Bobby Wagner. The thing that makes you go as a head coach he has everything to you and you're making him wait for his money. That doesn't make sense at all Razi clouds. I was talking hanging over over an organization with the rams. Did it last year for Aaron Donald Why they make him wait I do you think you can actually get better than Bobby Wagner or be okay without the terms of his deal what he's asking for but he's definitely on the wrong side of his prime. He wants just espe- paid Russell Yeah. He wants seventeen million yeah there was a linebacker. Oh God he just left Baltimore. Got A big deal another inside linebacker this making seventeen year. That's what happens. That's the contract you look around the League and see what other guys isn't that fair. If you're the best at your position and then somebody signs for more than you at that position yes and no they should come to you and say you know we'll just make this right but every teams constructed differently every team has done a different time line it happens with quarterbacks all the time seahawks always always have these financial disputes with defensive players. They did it with Tommy Yeah. Earl Thomas is so mad at peak carol that one he flipped them off to guess hasn't apologize. I mean I think you're seeing a Josefina just got into say that he doesn't regret it all not at all right and I think they paid him something like forty something million bucks and he was upset two years later because guys were making more money than him well yeah. He's the best safety in the game. The only way to make it right is to make him the highest paid safety in the game yeah but the the seahawks just paid Russell Wilson not long ago. That's always the problem when once you start paying your quarterback and the rams are gonNA run into this at some point once you start paying one guy a ton of money. You're GONNA start hemorrhaging good player this goes. This is what so messed up in the N._F._l.. I'm GonNa read off to view the sixth highest paid quarterbacks from last season and you tell me why some of this is new money. Some of this is new money because I bet you're going to bring up kirk cousins of course we're GONNA bring up. Her cousins. Third Highest paid quarterback last year twenty eight million dollars highest paid quarterback last year in Michigan State Spartan Kirk Right. That's no playoffs because I didn't say you just can't pay mahomes yet but look if I'm the rams and I've look at this all right Aaron Rodgers thirty three and a half million dollars. Don't make the playoffs fair but no one of the best quarterbacks in the lead the playoffs one of the best quarterback deserve the money he of course he deserves the money but look what happens to your team when the Thai raking by they had other issues going on the coach and everything like that Matt Ryan Thirty Million Dollars Atlanta Falcons coming off an M._v._p.. Season yeah the super millions right. They'll make the playoffs. The biggest example is like Joe Flacco they were Super Bowl team. They paid flocco and now they they went to the bottom but they went back. Mediocrity Kirk cousins Jimmy last year twenty seven and a half million but he got injured. I get it Matt Stafford was the fifth highest paid quarterback man look he's. He's just the quarterback version of Barry Sanders missing males. They can't six excise break quarterback in the league last year. was somebody played at the State of California Garoppolo though Oh what's his name in get too excited and Oakland that's right there cards twenty seven billion. They don't make the playoffs how much twenty seven months yeah so now you could the quarterbacks who got paid this year. WHO's a quarterback who got paid a big Russell Wilson just got paid? They're not going to make the files. No they made the playoffs last year this year I I would take that bet you want to see I've Seattle makes files or not if holding out bobby pay quarter and win the rams win the N._F._C. West Seattle is not going to be far behind at all and the third of the division and when you do separate you know the teams that are going home in December January and the teams that are moving on Seattle is going to be there Seattle's going uh-huh yeah to the to the N._F._c. play take that back last year was supposed to be a rebuilding year. They were supposed to be rebuilding that football team and they made the playoffs. Yeah that's see San. Francisco is a mess now. San Francisco is going to be better. They'd be most improved team. They're GONNA be the second best division are you. Were you are we. Are you willing to put yes. I'll bet on Jimmy Garoppolo being great exactly you know who is the forty nine and I just I'm and if he fails everybody's going the trend is when your quarterback sound a rookie deal. That's when you have success the opposite of that has to be when you pay your quarterback a ton of money right you don't have and I mean you could also be like the Pittsburgh steelers now. You haven't won a super bowl in awhile but you're always in contention but he's not a tie and remember whenever Aaron Rodgers is on the field with few exceptions. He's always the best guy on the field. You know what I mean. The packers might have beaten the rams if they didn't get the ball out on kickoff remember birthright. That was if rogers gets the ball back. That story changes a lot so he's worth the cash and you're still in contention if you have a great quarterback. Are you happy if the rams make jared goff atop five paid quarterback in the N._F._l.. How can you say no especially let's see he he he gets better? He was just in the super bowl and he gets better going into his fourth year starts to become the leader of the football team. The team is winning even with Todd Gurley sitting on the bench. How can you say not paying him? What's your what's your reason are you in is? Would you pay somebody. He's a top five quarterback. Your team can't move forward you have to I think you have to when you find the guy you pay the guy anything life to mark okay you life can take you a million different directions long. Anything Jameis Winston I think is in year I five right so this is his make or break it. Can you imagine Jameis Winston as a backup yeah if he doesn't succeed this year. That's what's going to happen but I think he's jared. Goff is head and shoulders above those guys I think he's but the door of elite goff the do you believe. Do you believe office a top five quarterback right now okay but you're willing to pay him as a tough quarterback I think you have to that's just the way the market's going with quarterbacks. Why do you but if you see the market go off? You can't win what had happened. It happened before when Sam Bradford came out of college when the the rookie pay scale was a lot of wacky made more money signing his name to a contract than most guys had made in their whole careers that changed SD at some points. I think the economics of football will change. The guy grew up in Washington D._C.. I grew up in Washington fan but I understood and and I am Michigan State Guy. I still understood why Washington didn't play paker cousins. You know why they we didn't pay. I understand that you understood why they didn't pay yeah. He's he's average upgraded a quarterback and they say righty so Washington actually Alex Smith Yeah. I don't think that's an upgrade. No I mean either. I do I if it isn't a slight at the cost if it is that slight to me but I mean it's not necessarily that Washington like. Why didn't they pay him? It's like why did Minnesota pay him that much money well. What did you see him that Washington didn't I think the ribs can pay attention to what's going?

"Saddana show here on ESPN LA been Lyons hanging out with us. Happy birthday, Frank Vogel today. Oh, happy birthday to coach fun, well, Malibu? So house, would we don't know boo Frank do? I think I think he's a south bay guy almost these guys are south big is the facilities closed Manhattan beach life. Yeah. I still party at the Islands Open yada at the Ireland's for Vogel. Well this, or they can do what's the name of that? The strand Halloran house. You know that seems like a that's like an Ireland family special to write the strand house. What's up players players, Lisa? We gotta throw coach a birthday party. Why not? It'd be great Frank Vogel. Abby birthday, coach either way, Ireland is going to end up after this vacation that he's on is going to have the best handicap, he's ever had right? Like that's what's happening now. He's just literally getting that's and I get the text. Hey, what are you doing at four thirty in the morning? Wanna go play twenty-seven holes. I just landed from Utah. Yeah. He's he doesn't sleep. I feel like. No. My wife was trying to help them with meditation. You know she teaches meditation. She's on her Instagram right now, Mariah K lions doing a live Friday afternoon, meditation, if any way way to explain again, your wife is teacher. But she does it on Instagram on her Lonner channel Mariah K lions. She's live right now, and Instagram doing a guided meditation. She does them all the time, and she's been doing them. John Ireland's house helping John try to unplug, and she was making progress and unfortunately, he's back on the wagon I've just consuming content. Whoa subscribing to the athletic watching game of thrones scouting, the Lakers, playing golf just being John Ireland. Throwing Frank Vogel birthday parties. So let's get after it. So if I went on your wife's Instagram, Pedro now, she's just sitting there going walking through a guided meditation, George. Let me live in this time, we're, we're constantly being inundated with images and messaging, and we need to kind of find the pockets throughout the day. Day to seek stillness on the inner. Right. That's right. You I'm with you. There's so much loud Sicily, so lousy. It was loud. Energy, it is. I'm loud, energy. So I understand that. So I like I do like to take quiet walks in nature. I do that at least a couple of times a week. Do you live stream the walks? No, no, no, no, no. I I've seen the what. One I don't actually want anyone to bother me. And those are you the guy like this is what I do on a flight. Obviously I fly a lot. So I, I feel like if, if you have headphones on that should be a tale that you don't wanna talk to anyone. Right. Is that is that like known rate like, yes, like if you saw someone with your buds on right? Would you approach them? It depends because you can have the wireless ear buds and not be on the phone. No, no. But what about these like the ones I have now with, like strings attached to them? You have the generic apple ear buds leaving your loan. That's one's actually kind of opened the door for interaction because because you're doing business. You're communicating with the world. You're when you have the big hip hop phone. Yeah. Yes. That is saying to everyone showed I've in my own case. So little air, buds, I'm, I'm plugged into the world at large, what you're going to wait for a minute. I'm going to see if you're an inner conversation if you're not gonna conversation, then you might be able to hear are you are you a talker on a flight? Depends if I get on the plane, and go left, or go right by get on the plane, and I go left, I'm Sean network. I'm trying to chat. What are you wait? Let lies in the left side of the last when you get on the plane. Do you turn left or do you turn? Right. When you turn left, I'm trying to talk right? Let's try to get going on. Maybe do a moot. Turn right. I got the headphone on. Okay. I got you got you. That's very elitist of me. No. But in general, like Jimmy, it's like so it's funny like I, I don't mind I, I will talk on a plane, if it's daytime, and it's not like an early morning flight like if it's not an early morning flight. Because if it's an early morning flight chins, Zarb coming from a game and it's late and I'm tired. And I don't want to talk to anybody. But if it's just like a midday flight, then I'm game for talking to anybody. I actually was on a flight. I think I told Mike this story, a while back I sat next to a woman coming back from Houston, maybe. And she would. Lives here. Ozzy huge Laker fan. I believe she told me she lived in the valley, and she said to me, aren't you? Aren't you the guy that works at ESPN, and I was like, yeah. And she we talked and takes our bench. She I remember that time this. I don't remember what her name was. Nice black lady. She was just like killing Lonzo ball. Like she called him Lonzo glass, to me over and over and over again where I was so uncomfortable that I was just, like I just get a chuckle uncomfortably, and like you and I said to her once I said, man, you really don't like Lonzo Shaikh. He's always like I mean, she was right. She was always quickly. I got a friend. Diehard. Laker fan listened to your show all the time shout, the brain in crane, shut up. Shut up Brandon not shut up. Sorry. Brandon cranes met his wife Karina on a flight from New York to LA next to six hours of chatting, they have a photograph of baggage claim where it said, you're at carousel six for Delta Airlines, whatever would have, and their daughter is named Nyla for New York tally. Oh, that's cool remains pretty dope. Pretty dope. Every reminder to every single person out there brushing teeth before you get on an airplane. You know, your life could change. That is true. Absolutely right. So you're ready for the hot juicy rumor yeah. Gold boiling gold. Ru? Anthony Davis while while while has followed. Audience the Graham. Deangelis russell. De the audio the audio. Something, nothing or everything. Ben lyon. All of it. That's everything what d- low is in is vain back in LA. No more Nick young. No more Snapchat is on Instagram. Let's go. So it's I'm in, so it's everything it's interesting. Yeah. Show, Brian win horse was on the get up this morning with my Greenberg and a cast of thousands. I believe Jalen rose was on their Jay Williams. Laura Rutledge, right. There was a bunch of people on this set. Here's what Wendy said about DeAngelis and the purple and gold Dangelo. Russell. Let's do that against we get fed volume up ready. Here we go. Crazy name Dangelo Russell the guy that they traded away, Nick young. We had a problem with his gone. Magic Johnson who wanted him out of there is gone. Everybody who was on that roster is gone. The, the nets are going to move on to Kyrie Irving, probably, they could bring him back. They could train away all those other number two picks and they could bring him back and he actually might be a fit. I mean he does make some sense on this particular roster. A shout out to the Lakers front office, who have not gotten a lot of shoutouts as of late because their track record in the seven years that I've been on radio here in Los Angeles at the draft has been phenomenal. They've done a great job there, Jesse bus, and Joey bus who basically do all the scouting for them there, the director of scouting, one of them and the other one is the G league. President basically they do phenomenal work like you will never hear me utter. A bad syllable about those guys Randall de low Ingram mauve honor. I love Zubaydah. Like they drafted a lot of really hard. Yeah. Solid. Gosh. So it's funny. I've heard the one year that they were allegedly this is what I've heard. I don't know how true this is that the one year that they were. That there, I guess, recommendations weren't necessarily taken was when last year when they ended up with Movado, which was a, a reach at the time in most people's eyes. Listen, I know Michigan guy, I know that's hard for years Michigan's got first rounders Jordan pool in the warriors. So, yeah, I think they've been a wonderful job drafting, and it's a shame that a lot of those pieces like Randall, like de low like now Brandon Ingram are going to flourish elsewhere and have become all stars elsewhere. But if they want to keep the revolving door go in and bring back home. I'm with it. I think he's done a wonderful job of moving on from the whole Lakers situation. And he's now in all star point guard in the east, and I think he'd be a great addition for them d- low to LA ice, an advantage, George D load. Are you feeling it Mike? I actually am man. You know, I think I was thinking about this the other day when we mentioned this at first, I wanna ask you guys, do you think that his play on the court last see? Season kinda diminished. The stuff that he's done off the court. Oh, yeah. He's grown leaps and bounds. I know he recently had some in the airport, Arizona ice, tea fake thing grown down so much his game. Yeah. Yeah, I just think he he's coming if he did come back to LA with a lot more respect and value than he did in the past, and a lot of people that didn't like him in organization or going now including players, and wouldn't have some of the same. We're gonna have some of the issues that he faced that look Ardy are going to Kentucky out here in Los Angeles. So that old saying like Jason on a basketball. If you can ball, you can ball broke, and we willing to deal with that young man to twenty two years old still. So I'm know they need a point guard, if they're gonna go out and pay for one with Kemba Walker DO, if they're going to go out and try to get a veteran point, Ricky Rubio as a placeholder, I don't know. They still need a point guard for guardless and dealer would be a bow. That'd be great. We're a great story. I'm with it. I think it'd be a cool little redemption. Story. For sure in a lot of ways. But you have to pay him big money, though. Right. Well, he's twenty seven million dollar max. There's one way to get to that. Hello. Anthony Davis who just followed him on Instagram. Wave your, your trade Giger, and that's it. That's done. You have a Ramona, it, some really good on on Mason show earlier, hold that thought, and we'll do that in four minute. Let's sit down show you on ESPN LA been lines hanging out with us here. So we were just talking about how Anthony Davis is followed the ngelo, Russell on Instagram. And that's the thing. And you heard Windhorst on get up last segment. We played it that he said that, that could be a thing. Now, you said remote us said something really smart, which looks she does a lot? So they're almost pretty much every time. Sometimes we all say, stuff that we can't regret like she did say that one time she went to Cal, but she also did tell us a hall to back off Leonard and his free agency plans. Thirty seconds after he won the title. I will defend her of that and doing. Agency, I will defend her on that. But she did one say on the record. We have the audio that she went to Cal. That's what I meant when I said that we've seen the Oklahoma City thunder begin their recruitment of Paul George from the moment they made a deal for him. Right. You saw Toronto, recruit Anthony Davis Asari got why Leonard to stay long term from the moment. They got him Ramona was saying that the Lakers recruitment of Anthony Davis long-term begins right now. Yes, he is not guaranteed to be hereafter this year. Right. He'll be a free agent. Rich Paul has gone on the record saying they will explore free agency. If you're the Lakers, you were going to begin the recruitment of Anthony Davis long-term right now. Yes. So the first thing you say to them can't be, hey, will you give up for a million dollars? Right. You can't have it both ways and actually recruit him long-term right now. And the first thing you say to them is, hey, we do as a favor and take a four million dollar haircut. Those two don't exist. So which pass if you're the Lakers g wanna go down. Do you wanna go down the let's? Recruit Anthony Davis long-term and cater to him. And every decision we make from now into July first two thousand twenty is with that focus or are we trying to save four million dollars? So we can bring in Kyrie Irving or Jimmy Butler, Kemba Walker. It's not an easy spot for them. I get why the purple and gold would want to maximize that. But you're right. It's not the perfect way to start off the, the marriage. Can they get away with it? Hey, Anthony do us a solid make four million dollars. We're going to cater to you and the rest of the yeah, maybe they can maybe maybe the can. But what happens when someone gets injured? And then what happens when you don't support your foundation and what happens when you don't hire this person? That's how things compound. And that's why guys leave. Now you don't want it to be Dwight situation, though, that one was uniquely different. Obviously, the Kobe's the way him in. Kobe did not get along was the bigger issue there and my understanding. Right. It's been reported about the way that meeting went was he was expected to be like, yeah, the torch will be passed to you. And he was like, nah, right? That's how it was reported. So I wasn't in the room, obviously. So, you know, it's funny is that, like those torch passing conversation. As we think those exists as fan into here. They actually do on some level is strange. I do think they'll LeBron an Anthony Davis thing. That is a real thing, but Anthony Davis doesn't carry himself like a star. If you're not, like, wow. What a magnetic personnel LeBron walks into a room he sucks, the air out of the room, you know. Exactly. Who's in there? So Andy Davis is not, but he is really tall. And he's got a union Brown. But it's why he's the perfect Robin to LeBron being Batman. Yeah, I wanna see. It reminds me more of like magic and Kareem than it does of Kobe tonight in some ways. Yes. Agreed you know, but I really liked hearing Ramona say that about today's modern NBA in that the recruitment process starts a year out. It doesn't start with a meeting or a billboard the week before free agency. Gotcha. Let's go to rob it and mission viejo whatever happened. Hey how you guys doing? I wanna say respect your guys opinions. But look at what Golden State, did they, they created a dynasty with three big superstars Durant's on that team? Toronto doesn't win if clay Devon get hurt. They're still another chance. Toronto doesn't win the more superstores. You have the better opportunity, you have to have the success. And you guys talk about people get injured well coup. Why was out like twelve or thirteen games and they still won but, but they had the depth to overcome it. They were seventeen and five in the twenty two games that he missed because they have guys that have been used to carrying the load, but they're all they're getting up in age. But that, but if you go back to all the way when Jerry West dump everybody for shack, you're still pick up guys in the in the reality is, is eight series, one of those guys that you pick up is a pro, and they've gotta shy just like no no, I agree. But the game has also changed the free agent game. Also changed plenty since when Jerry West got shut, Robin. You have the star, you're right? You got a big three Kyle Kuzma. Let's elevate him and have him get a seat at the table for he can feel and play and carry himself like the star that he is. Trust me. I love that. They got to keep coups. All those guys kuzma's the one guy wanted. But I still I don't I, I mean, I don't think that if you have the opportunity to get that big, big guy because there's only so many minutes, and so many numbers. And if you've got those guys even if one gets hurt you still got another one. There's two of them playing at the same time with three cocaine. So let let's do this rabbit. Let's do this real quick, because I gotta run let I'm gonna ask. I'm going to throw out a name. And you tell me if you're good with him being the third person or if you're drawing the line somewhere. Okay. We're gonna start from the most obvious one. Right. So collide, clearly you're good with that. Yes. Definitely. Okay. Let's move on Kyrie Irving. Definitely. Okay. Jimmy butler. Okay. So you're drawing. They were going drew a line at Jimmy Butler. Kemba walker. No. Okay. So now now we've seen it. And who else is really Wellesley sides, coli? And kyri is I mean that's. I mean that's just two guys chances of them landing either of those guys is slim. I've always said, kyri. I mean, I would love Quat Kawai. Gimme a break quite came. You could count that as we're getting. What's his name would probably playing for three or four more. But my, my point is this, then it's really only two guys you're talking about not. We're building out the roster. Right. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. Then that's it that, that, that I mean, I'm with you on cou why I don't I mean Kyrie is unknown commodity with with LeBron. So I understand it, but I don't know if, if I would want to deal with the stuff that comes to Cairo is basically the way I would look at it, but carries going to Brooklyn. I don't think the Lakers thing Israel at all. So if you're gonna call up and say they have to sign Kawai or else, I don't like their plan. Did you see this story about how allegedly kyri called in some Boston show like so basically, there's a the bosses station WBZ, one of the sports stations their thought that they had a caller defending Kyrie and then they thought it was Kyrie's the most Boston thing ever saw a guy who quote unquote sounds like kyri they thought was kyri? It's the most Boston story ever. Listen to this. This is the audio from WBZ. On full house is calling Lynn saying that was such a rare talent like Tyree. It's such a shame that the fans in that welcome. Welcome him in more towns like those are so red it'll come back back, then I think it serves us right now. He's gone. And look at what we're left with. Oh my God. Wow. No, that's him. That's it's the inflection that is him. It's not just the voice if the inflection in the way he talks inflection. I didn't I didn't catch that at all. I mean Ho's Asam coated words right there. Inflection like what does that mean? Yeah, I mean it up now the most Boston thing ever, man could always in Boston getting into these spats on talk radio. It's just the way they do it, it's, it's part of the fabric. It's is wild. But anyway, that just kind of came to my mind because we were talking about kyri I coming up next. Max Kellerman, someone you know, well, and love here at ESPN LA, apparently had right? Apparently set a thing that set some people off right. And then got some pushback on it that, right? And we'll tell you what that's about in three minutes savannah show here on ESPN LA. Ben lines hanging out with us. We're gonna play a little bit at the movies in a second. But I, I gotta get to our buddy max Kellerman. That's right. That's right. Show last week on I take max Kellerman was asked the question. It was him. Steven A and is Zia Thomas on first take. And they were asked about who would you want to take the last shot on the Golden State Warriors, and Steven A. And Isaiah said clearly Steph curry like he's the best shooter in the game. And max max had a different spin on that. So this is going to be like a mash up. So spoiler alert he's going to say the person's name and then that person was a guest today on first take and. Basically, sparred a little bit, you know, with max about his pick what the game on the line one shot. Who would you rather have taking it Iggy or curry of everyone on Golden State, open shot fate of the universe on the line, or the martians have the death being pointed at earth? You better hit it. I want Igwe Dalla. So you're not the shooter Steph viz. But I'm saying when it matters most, you're the dude, I think doesn't care about that moment. Same guy like ice water in his veins. You're response he crazy. You can is the best of all time off the dribble. A his position Osei. He's the second best point guard of all time. If you argue as Thomas better to him, I won't fight. But in my opinion, second best point guard of all time. Magic Johnson one of the best shooters of all time, probably the best shooter of all time when on his hand. Yeah. That doesn't help your argument when the guy comes on the show invis- like now. You're nuts. It's not me. We love max because he's oftentimes happens to be. But sometimes tries to be the smartest guy in the room and he's outsmarting himself with that answer because he's right. We haven't seen Steph hit big shots in the right for nine with twenty four seconds. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And the idea if he's all the attentions on them, and then you swing it to a nigga if you look at historically at a lot of the most important shots in NBA history their made taken by role player. Yeah. Ami's John, Robert ory hosts goes on. So there's some max intelligent argument to that. But don't outsmart yourself just get the boss? Steph curry is best shooter, vault every time every single. Right. Yep. Sorry. Amac's it is interesting. Now, how Steph has built a force field a get smart cone of silence. If you will around him at does not allow him to be criticized for missing. Big shop. I disagree that over nine stat was a big thing after they lost the final thing was there everywhere the game you game six. He missed that shot at the end of any other of the star players of our life, had missed that shot. There'd be some giant condemning of their ability as a play. Maybe it's because of who maybe it's why maybe it depends on who I'm following on the internet, but on Twitter it was going nuts. Like they were killing him. Yeah. I guess this year going for nine in their last game or. No, no, no. What I'm saying is he's over nine with twenty four seconds on the shot clock. Right. It's starting to a little bit of a thing. Yeah. But I mean he hits that shot at game six they go back to legacy. Chain any other star players work miss that shot who I feel like they, they're the vitriol would be palpable. I would be if it was LeBron it'd be worth it. I don't think there's any question coming up in ten minutes. Jay Bilas is gonna stop by. We're gonna talk to Jay Bilas about the draft yesterday. He's got some thoughts on t h t the kid the, the Lakers drafted the purple and gold drafted. So we'll talk to him about all that stuff in a few minutes. And Ben actually has a cool story that he's going to tell Bill. He's going to ask Bilas a story about himself, right? Like he was like a quirky story about Bilas at a charity fundraiser, don't give it all away. Jay Bilas was the master ceremonies and he was incredible. You don't get to seem to be that funny on TV. But in the privacy, this event, he was amazing. And there was some Hollywood making out that I'll never forget, okay? Making out Hollywood and Jay Bilas sounds like a Good Friday me. It'll be an excellent Friday conversation with Jay Bilas in less than ten minutes. I we've got we're going to do this throughout the show today, because it's Friday, a bunch of movies are opening Ben Lyons. For those that may not know you may just know him as a slightly obnoxious Knicks fan, but he is also I believe still the premier man when it comes to reviewing. Movies.

Now you go fair enough. I show coming up next, Jay Bilas is gonna stop by ESPN college basketball insider analysts like he is the voice of college basketball. Basically he was on the draft last night. We'll ask him about the purple and gold pick t h t Taylor and hunter Tucker tailing, Horton, Tucker, excuse me. That's his day. And then go THC's just easier. Right. And we'll talk to about Zion hill. We'll get maybe his thoughts on just kind of the Lakers, big picture to, and I want to see if he remembers that time I saw big Hollywood movie star make out for charity. Yeah. Fair enough. All coming up next with Jay Bilas back and four and a half minutes. We're back here on the pseudo show on ESPN LA. And yesterday obviously draft night, the Lakers bought into the second round, we'll get to that a little a little bit later with our guest, Jay Bilas, the premier voice in college basketball joins us you saw him yesterday on. On the draft coverage on ESPN. He joins us on the Sodano show on ESPN Los Angeles. So Jay, let's start with Zion row quick. What you've been doing this for a long time. You've been doing the draft for a long time. Where does he rank as far as the combination of talent and personality, and everything that just kinda comes with it? He's right up there. There's nobody I can really compare through George because he's he's so different from any other player I've ever seen the first year. I did the draft re SPN was two thousand three that was Brian Carmelo Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh draft. And, you know, LeBron James is the best high school player I've ever seen, and, and it is one of the best players period I've ever seen. I don't think that, that's I in Williamson is as good as LeBron. And comparing them at age eighteen. I just don't believe he is. And if I had to choose between an eighteen nineteen year old Anthony Davis and and science labs right now. I'd take Anthony Davis, but outside of that. It's kinda hard. It's kinda hard to say, you know, maybe Durant at the time, but it's kinda hard to say that, that anybody else you would take over, you know, you might think long and hard about it. But, but he's, he's pretty pretty special and. And I think he's gonna be, you know the one thing he doesn't do. He's not a drop dead consistent shooter, but everything else he is, is unbelievably good. And as long as he stays healthy. I think he's got superstar written all over, obviously, Zion, a big story last night, but they say it's a copycat league. And with the success of the raptors and warriors. He saw Chauncey comparing hot guys last night to cli- and Draymond. Are you noticing with the draft last night teams trying to emulate, the current state of success in the NBA? Yeah. I don't think I don't think you're gonna see team saying well, hey, let's go get. Let's go get a bunch of guys outside the lottery and Bill t that way. But, but I do think you're, you're, you're seeing shooting being valued just because of the symmetrical threat, but that the three point shot has become and people have figured it out. I mean for a long time. You know, the, the three point shot has been a basketball for, for quite a while. It's been a college basketball since nineteen eighty seven and, and I it's involved but I think that the speed of the evolution of the game, the last probably seven eight years has been unprecedented. I, I can't imagine that any any game has changed as much as basketball's changed that amount of time maybe football with a four past it, but it's really amazing how you know, ten years ago like they take Brito Fernando, for example, the big guy from from Maryland, ten years ago, he would have been a first round pick. And maybe even a lottery, Nick and. And now he's a second round pick. And you're not seeing guys that are, you know, the, the sort of big burly, low-post rebounders and, and rim protectors being valued like there were, you know, the one big guy that was drafted really early number eight was Jackson Hayes of Texas. And, and I think you know, he he's, he's being looked at, you know, more is, is a guy that's a, a big time athlete. And so it's just totally different. You know the low post game post big guy is not does not valued to say now it's guys that can stretch it and shoot it drive it and in playing transition. How long did it take you to kind of just as an analyst, because I feel like there's a there was like a learning curve for everybody here. Jack. Yeah. That, that hasn't been as big of a deal, because, you know, I it, it you've been able to see it the, the thing you know, going way back. That was the hardest thing for me to just do was sorta know by old school thinking about high school players went high school players started coming into the league, you know, kinda the I don't know if you call it a bias or just a conditioning, you know, thought conditioning that it's gonna take it's going to take a, a high school player time to adjust and you know, I, I didn't give credit to sorta like I like Dwight Howard, that was unskilled. But, but had this freaky up lettuces like Trump lack of skill. And so you would you would go with kind of the season college player in your mind that, you know, it took me way too long to, to kind of knowledge, that, wait a minute. You know, these guys are these guys are ready and they may not be as ready as they're going to be, but, but, you know you'd. Better. You'd better go with the, the big time talent over the circle. The more experience more prepared player now because they're going to get experience gonna get prepared outpaced. These guys, it seems like j it's been an annual pilgrimage every July for Lakers fans to make their way to Vegas to hoist banners and celebrate Lonzo ball or Kyle Kuzma, watch him pop. I don't know if there's a lot going on for the for the Vegas Lakers seeing this year. However, who is that player that you would tell basketball fans in Los Angeles. If you're going to be out in Vegas summer for the summer league go check him out. Well, I mean, you know, it depends who they wind up getting on the roster because they're gonna see I think the Lakers, don't necessarily have to go out and get another superstar to go with, with LeBron and a AD because they also have cow coups on the roster. And people seem you know, way too many people outside LA, maybe in LA seem to be forgetting that, that they've got a guy that, that they decided to keep even though they're going to trade away higher picks. You know they traded away to number two picks and kept him. So that tells you how could they think he is can't be? And he was he was more highly valued. I believe that, that both Lonzo ball or Brandon Ingram. But I think they have to go get guys that compliment LeBron AD at to some extent. And if it means a, you know, a few players rather than just getting one star they have to do that. So I wouldn't worry too much about the summer league. I'd worry about more what they're going to put on the floor the exhibition season whether played Staples 'cause the summer league getting, you know, it may may be it may be fun to go to bagel and all that stuff. And watch that, but, but I don't I don't see anybody you know, kind of talking about how great the summer league was last year. When the when the season what's poorly. Yeah. For sure Jay, what do you make of the kid? They did draft the second round Taylor Horton Tucker from Iowa State. I mean just kind of a freakish unique kind of body with that kit. Yeah, it's a different type of player, you know, he's really only six four but his arms, go forever. I think as wingspan if I've ever I seven wants to I watched the play a bit this last year, and some in Maui, and, and was kinda ease kinda like a, you know, he's he looks kinda like Charles Barkley the way he's built. He doesn't play anything like Barkley. He's a little bit ball dominant. He's going to have to get over that. But he, he can handle it. And he's a he's a pretty good passer turns it over a little bit, too much because he tries to do too much time because he's eighteen nineteen years old, not a not a great shooter, but, but very powerfully built and his length helps make him a really good finisher. So he he's got some ability and and you know today's game eat like he could shoot it but he's going to have to refine it to where he's much more consistent, but he's one of those guys where he's got he's got tools. And so. So you know, like, like we were talking about before about high school players. So he's nowhere near right now where he's going to be if he really works at this, and I think he will. And, and he they took him in a good spot like to be able to get him in the second round 'cause I, I kinda projected him at the top of the second round. So so to be able to get him was was good. So the Lakers at, and I think he's got a chance to be a to be a good piece for them. He's not a star caliber player, but he could be a really good piece. Jay Bilas for this year on this Donna show on ESPN LA, you'd mentioned about the Lakers and building around Davis and LeBron. If you had your druthers like you don't have to give me specific players. But what kind of players do they need to put around these guys? I think they need to put guys that are skilled shooters that they can park at the three point line. And they can stretch a defense and also guys that that after, you know being. A threat to hit a kick out, you know, kind of spray standstill jump shot can also attack a close out. And then they've got I think they have to get guys that, that can can switch and guard multiple spots. You know, it doesn't mean they have to get all these versus defenders at guard one through five because those guys are hard to hard to come by, but they've got to be able to switch to where they can they can be versatile defensive team. And, and I do think they have to have a point guard. You know, if you're going to spend some money it's gotta be it's gotta be spent on a point guard. 'cause I don't think I don't think I even though LeBron has has proven to be superman over the course of his career. I wouldn't want to waste his energy on having to bring them up all the time. And so I want to have a point guard take that off my, he could bring it up when he feels like it, what he's got the manage, but somebody else asked to take that responsibility. So. So, so getting a really good point guard, I think there's going to be important keeping it Hollywood. Here's Jay Bilas, a lot of people don't know about you. But you've got a great friendship with Matt Damon share with Los Angeles. The story of the night, Charlie stare on made out with people for charity that you're up. Yeah. I mean, I'm friends with with friends of mad. I don't I don't know all that. Well, I mean, come on Bilas. Don't be don't be humble here, utility, you're hanging with them in the Hollywood scene. It's all good. Yeah. There was a, there was a charity function. It years ago. Call one by one that I wound up hosting. And, and so I, I wind up, I wind up turning into a row slope it, but they, they had a, they had a, a charity auction where, you know, so many that movie stars that were there. Jeremy Piven auctioned off a walk on role on entourage. And if I remember right it went for like, one hundred twenty five fifty thousand dollars, something like that, well, and Shirley sneer on got up after that and, and auctioned off the World Cup, which is in South Africa at the time and, and she didn't get she wasn't getting the same kind of money that Jeremy Piven. God. And so she got a little bit exercised over it. And basically said look, we're gonna get up. Up to this amount. And, and that's all there is to it. And she, she auctioned off a kiss. She says, I will give thirty second kissed whoever and then the money started rolling in. Wind up buying it, and then sent up a very attractive brunette female for the kiss. And so true to our word she. She went through with it, and the, the auctioneers a guy named was a good guy that did the auction was a really good friend. They've jesse. It's learn who who has a magnificent sense of humor. And so as soon as those, those two very attractive women began kissing in front of a gigantic crowd. He counted. One mississippi. It was it was a Sisa thing change the pace a little bit. You know, Joop somewhere. I know it's out there on YouTube somewhere, so grainy video, and it was pretty fun, change little from draft talk and prospects. Are you in that scene, and you're talking to Damon about, like your role and I come in peace, like is that the part of the conversation bills? No. Well, I mean, you know, through trippy told David was asking me for acting tips after you saw my role, but good alien and I come at feasts, and when I died at the back of the car, I it was truly one of the fabulous tear jerking scenes of all time. And so I, I gave him whatever whatever tips I could for an actor his caliber to try to raise his level villas. You're the best. Thank you so much for making time for us as always. Thank you guys. Gonna be what if that was fun? Yeah. Cheap Phyllis is the best and it's so cool that he did. What twelve hours of television last night and took twelve minutes to hang out with? Yes. Yeah. He's always been very good to me over the years. And it was easier to get him on or not easier. I would say it was more relevant to get him on particularly. When Lonzo is in college. I don't like to waste his time. You know what I did want to ask him? I completely forgot. I do want to ask about the Kevin porter. Kid that went to USC but yeah, why he dropped so much. Everybody's talking about off court stuff with him, attitude and things like that came up a lot last night. Everyone's attitude. That Kim ball, though, it's funny because he he was at one of these camps. I think the ABCD camp and he might have been the best player on the floor in that camp. According to guys who were there treated four, second round picks, again, which is like a record against the NBA, but thirtieth pick. I mean it's good for him because he's still gets in the first round and gets guaranteed. But anyway. Coming up next K D. There's an interesting twist to the K D drama Ben, we'll get to that in just a moment. Stick around, we're back and four minutes here on. ESPN. LA.

The Sedano Show (HR 2): Ben Lyons share his top Eddie Murphy movies

"Rested piece bill withers eighty one years old. I mean just the musical icon so many songs lovely day. Lean on me ain't no sunshine and so many of the remixes like if you think about if somebody songs that were sampled by modern artists. It's just GONNA be sorely missed by the way he did not pass away at least not to the reports. It was not corona virus implicated. It was heart complications at eighty one years old so a devastating loss you know for the world and the music community and everyone beyond. Sodano with you here and we need this song for sure now with the here on seven ten. Espn presented by Progressive Insurance. All guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. So we'll have stugotz join us a little a little bit. We're still trying to effort to find Mel Kiper Junior. If you have any thoughts on this Justin Turner thing eight seven seven. Espn were Justin. Turner doesn't play extra innings. He's like let's go home. Run Derby let's do it. I mean look. I've heard way worse ideas. I actually like it. I and Look I love baseball. Baseball was my first love. I know people now think of me as an NBA person but base. I grew up in a Hispanic household. A Cuban family were baseball and boxing where the two biggest sports in my house. So Laura what was that I said I completely agree. Oh right yeah. Of course that was just it and my dad was super into the NFL. Very early on you know what I mean so I watched a lot of NFL too but there was no convincing him. Otherwise baseball and boxing weren't his one and two as Fars love. Sports were concerned so that as much as the NFL was on and then the NBA became a thing in the eighties for us It was all the order was definitely baseball and boxing in my household so but yeah. I just think it's fine like just spice it up. Do something different yeah a gimmicky but you know what baseball peers are always going to be upset about something. They were upset when they had the wildcard. They were upset when they added another wild card. And you know what all that stuff is actually helped the game well. The two wildcard thing is little bit odd for me. I don't know how I feel just yet. But it's a one game scenario which is awesome. Right which is cool. I mean it just adds another team. We see the wildcard team win the world series. You know decently often last year the Washington nationals were were the wild card and they just won the entire thing so you can get there. I don't know I just wouldn't if you get to be. The wildcard team. Usually the hottest team I don't know about the two of the two teams but I'm okay with I'm a baseball periods. I'm one of those guys that don't I hate. The idea of a runner on second base that to me is just absolute garbage. It's terrible idea. Don't want anything to do with the Homerun Derby. I can deal with whatever garbage strong. That's a strong it's garbage. Oh no it's garbage. It's absolute garbage. You don't you just put somebody on second base like they don't get how do you. How do you score? That does that Guy. Become you get absence. Get a double now randomly. I mean I'd rather have a home run derby good Lord. That's that's fine. I'm okay with the Homerun Derby and just not counting your home total but like if you put a guy second base and then he ends up scoring a run. Does that does that. Count no stats. No he didn't do anything to get on base so the whole Irvy's shouldn't count either like if you will the number. No it doesn't count towards your home. No but like how about you get one like you get one extra home. Run if you win out now no no you. Don't get an extra home run for the Homerun Derby you just. It's just you get a win in the win column. That's what you get all right. You're just decay. Spn Los Angeles Dan Montebello. What's up Dan? Yeah Gentlemen thank you for your time. I thought maybe getting maybe like kind of like soccer. You get three guys per team you get the bullpen coach out there with the cage. Each get three swings her guy and the first guy beats the first guy out of the three tosses. You get a point and after three guys winner. The most home runs. Get the victory for the team. Say That last part again. Do the last couples ends. You lost me there okay. You would get again three designate three guys. I got that part right kind of like you can the the extra the right. The penalty kicks right right. So you can get three or five guys and then you designated one versus one. They get free pitches for God gets to home runs one guest one. Boom step team gets a point. He gets to the second guy do the same thing now. They both tie it zero. You go to number three. They get a point. One one you go to number four to one that one that man. This got real complicated Dan. I love you buddy but that that seems way too complex for all right. Throw that you got brothers. Stay safe right and healthy you. God bless you. I miss you too loved. It was Nice I did too. I was lost a couple of intuit. Yeah Laura Okay so for me. I Love Sports. Right and baseball. Like don't touch baseball. If you're if you're into the stadium I get it the longer the better for me. I'm drinking I'm having fun with my friends if your home kinda sucks but hold on. Hold on hold on. They cut the booze off in the seventh inning. Don't they get I mean? Let's not get there because I'm not trying to get in trouble there but my thing is this guy. Just confused me. I was like Whoa. It's a lot a lot. Yeah we were in the Matrix there. Dan Thank you brother. God bless you. We love you. Quincy Quincy you in the Matrix there to listening to that. Yeah I was listening. It was kind of confusing. I gotta think I got a better one are. Let's go give it to me and use baseball all the time They don't want extra innings because of kids being able to play so we have the California rule that states that a begins on second with no out to speed way. That runner doesn't affect the area of the pitcher in his treated as a reached base on an error. This is like you know to keep the pace up so with kids. You don't want them playing. You know five six hours so we start with a runner on second and rarely does it. Go Pass any because we got hitters coming up. Something happens ball in play the pictures maybe walks runner so it usually doesn't go past one any then. You still have the play. All the baseball appears you still get to see some baseball. And it's not a gimmick and it won't last long typically doesn't last that long so go with the California rule. Thank you Quincy Greg. It's the California rule and no not in major league baseball. You can do that all you want in little league. You can do that all you want in single A. don't even put it in Aa or AAA either now. Nobody knows is a sport where the managers a grown man. Who WEARS A PAJAMA? Okay no absolutely I. There is so many things that will be okay with when it comes. I'm I'm starting to get my head around. The three pitcher minimum three batter. Minimum rule for these pitchers fine. I think it's GONNA speed up the game but no if you're GONNA do overtime. You're not just throwing somebody on a random base. Sorry there's other ways to do this in fairness eight seven seven. I'm sorry. Go ahead Laura who got go ahead Sir Anaheim. Hey what's going on? Hey Buddy doing right here. I'm to you guys in the series about this extending the Indians in. I I got a suggestion. I think it has to be a combination of a few few rules and change. Maybe one of them could be like. Hey you know what? If it's the home team is pitching and Pitcher Gets three strikes in a row on the three batters? Hey game over. The home team wins something kind of like That can get the excitement of getting. Kinda like a hockey when they do like the the hat trick or something like that Maybe just not one but a couple of different things that can Get that you know that game play going a little bit. Better a little bit faster my buddy. Thank you for the call. I don't know I'm feeling that one I get what you're saying about the speed of it but I don't know if I'm feeling that because that's what people want offense. You know what I mean and I don't feel like that dictates offense. An immaculate inning ends the game kind of deal right yeah. That's tough that's tough. Let's go to Wayne West covina Wayne Okay I'll I'm one who would say keep baseball the way it is but if we have did put this in. I would suggest one thing if it goes past the tenth inning and everything then there's an understanding between the infield incident outfitters were the Knicks Ball. Hit goes past them and the runner gets on sale based to to Well Non Hustle play in instead of putting the guy on basically for the ending begins. Then you can legitimately hopefully school run so what you're saying. The Guy should just let the ball go. I worth I like on contact just this past so so so. The runner gets on second base. That's better than being put on the base Automatically I disagree but I thank you for the call and I appreciate it. You stay safe and healthy. I would prefer California rule. Is the gentleman earlier. Dan Called and said I would also prefer the Homerun Derby at Baxter got US thing. Who's going to join us at eleven? Fifteen real quick before I get back to the calls. Did you see this story where it looks like the Cheat Astros might get off? Easy Bergman yes I did see that and it's very disappointing. It is disappointing. Because we have the audio let Show Jeff Passan said that it basically if the season gets cancelled that AJ hinch could be back right like that was the gist of what he said. Yeah basically with Jeffrey Lou. Now Okay so. Let me here passing a audio somewhere. Laura do let me hear the pass in audio on. Aj hinch is potential return to major league baseball because of basically he's a guy who because of his big league career you know this was someone who was a backup catcher for a long time attended to have a good personality. If you're a backup catcher in stick around and AJ hinch in his positions on the field and in front offices got to know just about everybody and pretty much. Everybody likes him too so the idea that he's GonNa go a while without landing a job. I just don't think is very realistic. He is someone who will be back in the game. I do agree with that. I do think you'll eventually back in the game. He's got plausible deniability. He did that interview where he said. He tried to wreck things. There's video of him trying. I guess allegedly trying to wreck the video system so I get that now. Buster all need Laura. We have that audio to just basically says that if this season gets cancelled they will be back. They will technically have served their suspension. Even if we don't play let me hear the buster only audio from Golic and Wingo the suspensions for jetblue now the former general manager of the Astros who was fired right after that decision came down and for manager A. J. Hinch they will end this fall that the wording of their suspensions is that they would to were to serve them through the end of the two thousand twenty postseason. It's not tied their suspension to specific number of games. Like we see with the domestic violence suspensions so ads of We get in what November I Assuming that Or WHENEVER THE POST SEASON FOR TWO. Thousand Twenty is resolved. That's when their suspensions and they will observe their time and they can move back into baseball. That is pretty wild when you think about it but I guess this suspension under their bylaws. I mean the way I understood it right. There is that it's the calendar year. The season doesn't happen. It's still the calendar year. Yeah that's I mean that's look what I'm worried about is that I think dusty Baker don't quote me but I believe Dusty Baker signed a one year deal with the house so they would just not even like dusty would get paid in writes. Maybe maybe yeah. Maybe he gets done. We don't know who knows exactly what's going to happen there. But still he's done you don't he doesn't even have a contract with them right and they're just like lettering backing act. Let's bring back inch. Let's get the band back together because it would be the most astro thing possible to happen. They're screwing everything up and I can't. I just can't imagine them doing this exact thing. Let's do it again. Yeah it is. It is very possible that that ends up. That ends up happening. Let me go back to the phones. Call in Newbury. Park has an idea for a baseball. You didn't hear Justin. Turner says that in the tenth inning. Forget extra things go with a Homerun Derby go ahead. What do you got Karl? Well actually I think that the way to the speed up in extra innings as the go to the softball rules which is start with a one count. The first pitch becomes more important You know a lot. More First. Pitch Swing a lot. More potential offense speeds it up like that I can. I'm okay with that. I would. I would put that on the list. I appreciate it Karl thank you. I would put that on the list for sure. Andrew is in Foothill Ranch Andrew. Glad you common because we should do a tie after eleven inning two innings. That's two tunings of extra baseball. We're good so just play it out like normal but after the eleventh inning you're done not the twelfth like some people have suggested okay perfect. I'm good with that too. Like I would put that on the list of thank you Andrew. I hope you stay safe and healthy as well as coral in Newbury park called earlier last one real quick before we bring on Stugatz to pitches his magic at bat idea anthony from Hamas back Anthony. Hey I mean all the propositions I still have the opportunity to take too long. So why don't we just put the fastest runner on each team on either based and he just hit a baseball and whoever can get to home plate. I in two out of three tries so each team gets a put two times. They hit the ball twice. Forgive home I twice. I mean they can just point that way and just wait now. You're done in like less than five minutes now. This is a better idea than your first idea. I. I don't Know How much I love this one but it's clearly better than you. I Know Roth Anthony. Love your brother. I gotta run up against it. Okay thanks take care all right. Let me give you one real fast. Maybe one real fast fried twitter. Starfish and coffee is saying that extra innings diminishing fielders tenth inning nine fielders Eleventh Inning. Eight fielders twelfth inning. Seven fielders down the line until someone wins. I mean not terrible. I mean he's usually really smart. He's probably one of our smartest listeners. I don't I'd have to digest that. Well let me just during the break real quick. So we'll have STU got sell us on his magic at bat idea as opposed to I mean basically he's GonNa tell us. Justin Turner stole his idea which look to be honest might have mean. He's been talking about this for years but anyway we'll talk to him and then Ben Lyons with our movie segment conversation.

Espn BEN LINES IS GONNA join US next for our weekly movie segment. We're doing Eddie Murphy. Movies this week because it's Eddie Murphy's fifty nine th birthday today. Stu Gods is joining us now from the Lebatardshow is the Dan Le Batard show with Stugatz. You can make sure to download and subscribe to his podcast called Stupidity. It's fantastic. It's fun it's Goofy. It's silly him And he's joining us now. Because this Justin. Turner thing of wanting to do a homerun derby in the tenth inning sounds familiar. I don't know if he stole it from US Stugatz but it sounds like to me that he stole it from well. Here's the key stealing something from someone Lord Doug than I know argue despite wheelhouse right now. It's better than they. He took my idea at. He added a flight week so he could pass it off. As his idea via original idea was there was a wedding. We go straight from the ninth inning to the home run. Derby five swings. The P each team gets picked one guy from their team for their roster to take those five suites he had three. I have one and the reason I say testing is because I want this thing on the ninth inning. One batter each team five swings a piece where all eleven fifty. Now let me ask you this. Are you designating when the managers bring up his LINEUP CARD? In you know before the game is also adding in there at the bottom. There's a new spot that says magic at back because that's what you've called this. You want the magic at Bat. Are you designating this player before the game? Is that part of the rule at apology dog. I sorry about that. No it's okay. We're in a pandemic man. Everyone's everyone's deal. Don't worry about why dog has got more airtime on our show this. We got believable That was Joe. If you remember we had RAF Fairford ought actually the first person that we add onto all these ideas were generally and he didn't like because he's old school so jim them. We figured everyone would like them. Jim didn't like most of them. He did like the whole run. Derby he did like The magic at bats two separate ideas so because these games could go sixteen seventeen innings and no one wants to sit around for that game should be ending at three in the morning That's how I came up with the with the home run. Derby and the game. So just go straight. Don't go to the fitting. Just go straight to a home. Run Derby the magic a bad. It's something a little bit different okay. That's all right. Yes you do designate someone. Before they gave. Let's say it's the you know the angels right. It would obviously be Mike Trout and the thought behind the magic fad is. Let's say the angels replay. The dodgers dodgers are up four three in the eighth proud comes up e strikes out and then go to the ninth. Okay but trout comes up? He's already done. He's done for the day unless the game goes to extras. Well the manager because he's designated him as his magic at that one time for games to go out of order eating Mike Trout to batch strikeout in the as at still come up in the night even though the batting order so essentially he is filling the spot for your eight bit. You know what I'm saying. Gotcha so the homerun Derby and the magic at bat were two separate ideas. I like the magic at bad idea. Better to be honest with you. I look at just feel free to steal that as well. A team is unbelievable. The magic at your all with this in mind okay. Nba which is your wheelhouse. Obviously in the final three to four minutes of the game. You're guaranteed that Lebron James Michael Jordan James courted. This superstars are going to be making the big shots or the big pass. Certainly they got the ball with their hands and made the big decision. That doesn't happen baseball because of the randomness of the sport because there's a batting order at so upset one time again. You want to see the business store is up in the biggest moment if baseball goes to give you that will give you the as hitter. Their worst inter out in the biggest moment as opposed to Mike Trout. And all I'm trying to do is get major league baseball. Not here where Mike? Trout gets an additional digital opportunity in a big spot. Help the angels win with like that. By what would it Manford say? What did MANFORD separate American hated? All of them is like what are we doing here? Who is this guy like? What are what are we doing here? Yeah but here's the thing George. I thought you liked it a lot. More would here just to say I bet you he does you. Should you should bring him back on just to be like. Oh yeah like just in Turner's idea I kind of that's true. Yeah yeah he didn't love the whole Derek. Jeter thing you guys did yeah. That was not that he didn't love that interview you guys. Let's make that with Labrador. Did all I WANNA do is talk about positively outfield? Yeah but listen he does. Petar takes all sorts of grief because of crap. You end up saying that sticks to him. This one has to stick to all of you to even if it's in that fair you're totally right because I don't story of dance telling stories about once that red spelling so that has been attached that they never told me that story. I dated. Also put it on there at the right He takes plenty for me and And so I have to take this one. That's all does so but we're not going to get Manford on but perhaps pitch at the Leland. Now there you go there you go. I have Dave Roberts on Monday should I do you? Are you okay bye? Pitch him the magic at bad as opposed to just in Turner's idea. Yeah I here's what I think you should. If you're cool with it I be interested in what he what he thinks of. Justin TURNER'S IDEA. And then you pick the magic fat okay. I like your idea but does your. I'll say one of my close friends has this idea and I will give you. I will give you the credit I will just say what am I close? Personal friends is got this fantastic idea. Now Greg Bergman producer extraordinaire of the show he is. I Call Him Corporate Greg. Because he's management now he's the assistant program director. You've worked with him before STU got so I also believe he has alter egos because he still have rabid die hard sports fan. One of those alter egos is dodger. Boy and dodger boy wants nothing to do with. Your Majesty back is basically the Rob Manfred of the show. Right now go ahead dodger board. So here's the thing still with the with the magic bat so you want to speed up the game you WanNa give Mike Trout and extra bat to try and tie the game to go into extra innings. Yeah but now if you have both rules in Play Greg. What you have is trout hitting a whole broad and then you get. Holbrook Derby very acting. There is no more accurate name. It's a homerun derby so three straight innings of Mike Trout. Getting up to bat. But here's the thing you want the game to go slower the faster though so you don't want to get into the extra innings with the with the run Derby because that's supposed to be a special things if you get there then. You're giving the home team a chance to tie the game with something that they shouldn't have had not here but here's really what I'm trying to do. Two things. They make the game more appealing and entertaining young people. Because when I take my kids to the game at least thing at the game is beginning a guy so I tried to make the game or entertaining for young people at. I'm trying to get the old people home at an earlier time. I understand your larger point. But let's who doesn't I'd almost want gains. Go to a home run Derby. Could you imagine I think about that? All guys being healthy. It's angels Gangqi or Gary. We get to the night sitting. It ended a five five. And then you have stanton and trout five. Swing the peace or judging trout five swings a piece and wherever hit the most home runs again? We all go off well and the other the other part of it is this stoop. Baseball has a marketing problem with their stars. This would help. Market there stars correct correct. Yeah of course. How could it not poetry giving your stores more opportunities? Let's be honest but I don't WanNa see the eight hitter or the nine. I WANNA spend trap out every single inning. And that's never going to happen. It's not the case in baseball. But you're making the stores more and more people Georgia right. You're making them bigger and you're giving them more opportunities to get in front of the fans is and so. I just thought the art dodgy have to be a dodger fan and have your eight or nine hundred cory seager Gavin Lux and somebody that can hit the ball but not every team has that locator species point right now not every dollar payroll could have those luxuries not everyone's the dodgers and Yankees right that all eight I eight hitters can saying like yours when I was growing up and it was like regular Joe was batting eight. The Guy like through eleven daryl area. I WANNA SEE. Ya exactly exactly. I stood before we let you go. We're having been lions on to do his top Eddie Murphy movies give me just right off the top of your head. No order necessary. Your top three Eddie Murphy movies. Well Forty eight hours. GotTa leave one out here. He was so guy he's raw. Were delirious or both if you want.

Insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. Thanks for joining us there. To Talk to us about Justin Turner's Homerun Derby idea which he may have stolen from Stugatz and then Stugatz also pitched us on the magic at Bat. Which Bergman was not a fan of the magic at bat but I think he's right and I think the magic of you didn't hear it basically. Here's the example might. Let's say Cody Bellinger. Bats in the bottom of the eighth inning. But in the ninth inning. They're still down. And the dodgers designate. A magic at bat person and that person is also cody. Bellinger cody bellinger. Gets the bad again in the ninth? If they're down like the manager can go to that person almost like a relief pitcher right and say I want my magic that Guy. Right now and cody. Bellinger can tie the game or win the game right there. And if they tie then they go into the home run. Derby and cody bellinger or whoever else on the roster who is designated as the Homerun Derby Guy as Justin. Turner wants right. He wants a Homerun Derby in the tenth inning Justin Turner he can be that guy and I just think it helps market the the stores in the League more. I know you hated Bergman but I love it. I think it's a great idea. Yeah I mean look it has its it has its ups and downs to it. But I just think that it's GonNa make the game go longer. I'll give you this though with hockey going to shoot out is like the most exciting thing about it's fun. Yeah I love hockey so this could be more exciting. If you go to a Homerun Derby is Ben. Lyons they're already. Hey Ben here sorry. I was growing up in the toilet listening to explain your rationale for defending the magic at that guy designate. What are you talking about it? Thank you so. Did you see the Justin Turner thing? Yeah he wants to turn Extra innings into Monday night affairs fatally baseball all star week. Yeah so I'm good with that. I'm also good with yes. I'm also God's idea the magic it bad. Is that you designate. A Guy that can bat whenever you need him to in the ninth inning and you can go to that guy and it's always going to be your start. Baseball's a problem marketing stars. No no no first of all George. Thanks for having me on the show. Second of all time in life year sentence of defense as I agree we see Gotcha idea. You know. You're already in trouble. I think the beauty of baseball is that we like. We celebrate role players in basketball. And football is that we've had utility guys come up with big hits and big moments and it's a team game if anything you WANNA short and extra innings. You put a runner on second base to start the tenth inning or the eleventh inning and then it brings him strategy that has been lost in an era of home runs and Jackson Turner. Home runs. Irvy's and strikeouts you ever run around and second base starting attending maybe MIA sacked fly at the opposite field. All the things that baseball purists thing had abandoned the game now become relevant again attempting to run around second but the turn into a video. Game is to have cody bellinger. Six Times in a row because he doesn't WanNa Watch of old player. Stop Please Yeah. I completely disagree. I think baseball has a marketing problem. Baseball's a young people problem that helps both of those things and the Homerun Derby. I take the second base thing as an alternative. But I I'm with Turner Gimme the Homerun Derby. I'm okay with that all day every day. Couple of other things we go go go. Go GO COME BACK. Actually but But yeah what do you WanNa get to Eddy Merckx? No no what did what did you have. I'm sorry I didn't mean to cut you up. I just you know and then all the things that we complain about with baseball throughout the regular season I overseeing more home runs than ever and now you're saying your problem because six baseball more overrun but it. Everything we celebrate in the POSTSEASON GAME. Take a long time. They gained got interested player movement and substitution and every runner and backout. These are all the things we celebrate October. But here we are now than abating baseball on how to fix them. It's more home runs runs. I don't think that's the answer. Yeah I disagree. It's kind of like running a play for your star player at the end of a game. You know what I mean like a basketball game to me. It's no different but anyway let's get speaking of basketball. We'll get to that in a second because Mason and Ireland and I picked these all time laker teams. And I'm curious you who you think had the better team I got. We all got wiped by Mason in the simulation but I have questions about the simulation to I not formerly filing a protest. But I feel like I should file a protest but we'll get to that in a second. It is our movie Friday segment with you. Obviously people are at home and I wanted to ask you. Your top. Five is what we do every week. A top-five your top five Eddie Murphy movies today. Happy Birthday Eddie Murphy. Fifty nine today as always got off the board and he threw stand up into the mix But I'M GONNA keep to the original parameters and stick to films. I'M GONNA go with a film directed by Ted Demme and number five. It's called light. And it's with Eddie Murphy. Opposite Martin Lawrence and Lou. The only time we got to see. Eddie in a true ensemble in a comedic peace alongside you know everyone from Anthony Anderson and Guy Torry ferndale eight Bernie Mac and bulky woodbine a lot of people in that very heartfelt movies. I'm GONNA GO Weiss. Both finger was very close But license number five number. Four is nutty professor. Which is the ultimate balance of a family film for Eddie Murphy while also keeping that high bar of comedic You know Excellent that he that defined the early half of his career and number three. Let's all Beverly Hills cops together. Axel Foley number three. Obviously the best of the action comedies. That he did over the years like forty eight hours or metro or things that else on number two. I watched it during. This quarantine is one of my favorite movie of all on trading places. Gi Joe Kung Fu grip The Mortimer bads obviously Dan. I Dan ackroyd on the bus with a chat with the Santa Claus. Salmon but Eddie Murphy Billy Ray Valentine with some social commentary Tremendous in it and the number one of course undefeated coming to America complete game changer. Remainders doing a sequel. Which I'm nervous about because of the dumb and dumber sequel on how that went. I almost want them to leave it alone. But that's my top five. I didn't include thousand. Words were Dave or workday or Pluto. Nash all he made over the years But that's my Eddie Murphy. Tap out which was the worst one of all of those. I remember go to the screening of Pluto Nash. My Dad and it was one of those along the line that like Howard. The duck all timers right but you need to like our the duck as a kid. I did at least but Louis WHO's Mon- shows up and I believe he's playing the first Puerto Rican astronaut and it just saved the ten minutes of the movie for my dad and I and we always laugh anytime to don't ask comes up because Louise Gutmann but yeah Eddie Murphy. Kinda you know yes. He had a good run between two thousand and two thousand ten Shrek obviously a huge hit and by now brought joy so many people but the two thousand ten two thousand twenty from Cower Heist with Brett Ratner all the way through You know a thousand words and Despite an Oscar nomination for dream girl that was a decade before. It's been a tough ten fifteen years to sell Valencia's talk about the Best Eddie Murphy. Which is Saturday night live? And he got the hosted this past December and reprise characters like buckwheat and Mr Robertson and anybody wants to go back and watch the old old Eddie. Murphy's nineteen twenty years old is still holds up today. He's one of the great performers of all time agreed with that for sure so if I'm not using the standups as a as one of the movies if it's just the films now mine is a little different. I like trading places. Great the mortimer. Just fantastic like all of that stuff is didn't crack my personal top five number five on my personal top five is Boomerang. You got to coordinate. Ben Lyons you've got to coordinate okay. Number four would be Harlem Nights. I mean just the fact that him and Richard. Pryor on the screen together is fantastic. So and of course your shot my Damn Pinkie Toe. Okay Ben Lyon shot my Damn Pinky. Toes. You're going to get it now. Yes number. Three is forty eight hours. I actually think another forty eight hours is really damn good to be honest with you. It doesn't get a lot of love for sequels but I actually think another forty eight hours is maybe not as good but it's not a huge drop off from one to the other also Beverly Hills cop one and two I do without wonder world three or wally world or whatever it was called that they were investigating but one two were fan freaking tastic first of all Brigitte Nielsen and number two. As as a villain was just incredible I thought so Beverly Hills cop number two and the number one is coming to America. Come on I mean coming to the barber shop scene. The characters that he played you know all the different aspects of that movie to me are make the best comedy he ever did. Captain is tremendous The set pieces the costumes To Fade so good. There's so many great lines and again. Bloomberg is for what they're going to do with the people nervous but happy to see him back in his guys man under dolemite movies for Netflix. That was Got Some Golden Globes attention this year and again hosting Saturday live Crazy career like forty years doing this Had A chance to interview my first Golden Globes for dreamgirls And Yeah just one of the all time one of the last like just like when I think of like show business you know what I mean like Hollywood. Yeah thanks. He's one of those one of those guys so I watched the Comedians in cars with him with Seinfeld and it felt like the first. It was forty minutes long which is very long for Comedians in cars but the first twenty minutes it almost felt like he was a lap ahead to do it but the last twenty were fantastic him and Seinfeld just kind of laughing having fun. It almost felt like he needed to get comfortable with Jerry for a few minutes. I feel like Eddie Murphy County GonNa be like all of us are going to be when this quarantine is over. We go back outside like any time. He's in a social situation kind a little uncomfortable but then he starts relax. That's GONNA hopefully the very soon getting back. The game getting back to concerts can be a little weird. Then we'll get comfortable and enjoy the rest of twenty minutes. Yeah for sure. So did you see the three teams based in Ireland drafted all-time Laker teams? Well I tell you something really smart you Kobe. I because regardless if he's the greatest Laker in real basketball he's definitely the greatest laker video game. Basketball is dominated. Shack is talking to move as you get the ball too far away from baskets. Kobe has a better three magic. Better defender I think magic and video games So yeah you went Hobie. I which I think gave a huge advantage. Well here's the thing so I won. I won the pop. I won the popular vote. Sixty percent of the audience over about five thousand votes voted for me and then we played the simulation and in this simulation. Kobe was terrible by the way in both games that I played which was crazy to me. Like how bad he was. He missed every shot even easy ones. It felt like and I had Kareem and my computer coach. Benched him for quarters at a time and would bench. Ad For to play like my Guy Byron Scott at power forward against like Wilton Shack on Mason's team like the computer was just it was shenanigans. It was all it felt like. I was being toyed with my emotions. Were toyed with with this computer simulation which was nothing like what? I expected it or anyone else expected it to be like and I got drilled by both Ireland End Mason and Mason swept it. He won the whole thing which was crazy. Yeah there's a lot going on here. First of all winning the popular vote means actually nothing as we've learned also may thin ice. Anyone is to be accused of tampering with the line. Ah or the rotations or the computer Simulation is obviously Steve Mason simply just from the fact that you lived on the west side and I feel like the westside lifestyle makes him more comfortable late night. Playing video game community. And you and your in Your Life Your Palace of that you come back to you after travelling around. She's right the A and like I think. Mason probably put in more video game hours than you guys to buy so definitely here and there could be some fire into these processors. Why don't play like I said at my doctor is saying. Why doesn't everybody plays? Uk Live all right. Well I I feel like I would crush them if that were the case though. That might not be fair. Either though I mean that's that's opening up a whole other channel more so I think that's I think that's something. They're Bergman if we got zoom working last week we can get the live to K- tournament gone trees Panama. I mean I don't think those guys play video games though. Which is the problem. That's why I would crush them. I don't play that often either but I've played that game plenty. I feel like we should get enough. Competition get enough run going but do not yours. We'RE WATCHING KEVIN. Durant play trae young tonight or were watching. You know we are on. Espn tube tonight yes on ESPN two or watching you. Well no not all of them. Some of them are on.

We'll tell you what that is in just a moment stick around. Sodano back in three minutes here on seven ten. Espn presented by Progressive Insurance. Thanks to Ben Lyons for joining us there. Thanks to Stugatz what happened above Mel Kiper. Bergman you know he did not call as he was supposed to milk hyper if you know what? It's funny because on Mason Island show. They were supposed to have todd mcshay this week and he didn't show up so are we. Is there a West Coast bias? Is that what's happening? I think there's a West Coast bias against ESPN. A seven ten ESPN. That's what that's what we're going to go with from now on. It feels like that. I gotta be honest with you. I know the guy who have to make. I'M GONNA have to make a call here. We go good because this is not because I sent him an email and he said hey. I'm checking in but no nothing nothing By the way do you want to tell the audience you asked me during the break? Why you gotTa put me on spotlight that yeah I just sitting there we were you know sitting around and waiting for the second to start and I said so.

What's in your wallet so Rex Ryan said the thing today on get up that everyone was all up in arms about and I don't blame them. I was When he said it I was like Oh really. Here's what Rex Ryan said earlier today. Well I agree with Dan on the fact that I wouldn't have paid this guy to me. The biggest disappearing act in the national football league. He doesn't show up on the road. I'd stop it for one Chang opposite everyone second. Stop for one second. He's I should preface this. I didn't even remember. He didn't mentioned by name. He's talking about Amari Cooper and the Dallas cowboys signing him to a five year. One hundred million dollars go ahead Laura. Sorry I agree with Dan on the fact that I wouldn't have paid this guy to me. This is the biggest disappearing act in the national football league. He doesn't show up on the road. He doesn't show up against when the competitions good when he's against the top corners that guy disappears and to me he reminds. It's only one time that I can remember in in recent memory on elite receivers and disappearing acts like Amari Cooper. That was the kid that the raiders had a few years. Oh that's right. That was Amari Cooper. This is who he is and Dan he did love football hell with it. He stops his routes. He does all this. I wouldn't paid this third. No way in Hell no way in hell. Would I paid this guy to me? Pay Dak Prescott. Forget all those numbers that they're number one in the league because a Dak Prescott not because of this guy. It's a deep draft that receiver. They made a huge mistake right here. So here's what I would say to that. First of all you don't call another grown monitored. Okay especially when you're a coach who's been fine three different times fifty thousand dollars. Seventy five thousand one hundred thousand dollars for incidents with fans including giving them the finger which you know. The jets didn't love all that much. I remember because it happened at a you. I believe it was a UFC event in south Florida many many years ago and I like rex. Okay I like him. I think he's good on television. But you made a big big mistake like you. Don't say that especially because anyone has ever dealt with Amari Cooper talks about how professional is what a stand up guy he is. What a Nice Guy. He is and how no matter if he has a good game or a bad game. He's always there talking to the media. He doesn't shy away from the media. That's not a personal attack like if you think he doesn't show up in big games cool there are plenty of people that will back you up on some of that stuff but just the making it personal. I didn't like and of course. Rex has since apologized. He went on sports in a little while ago and apologized for using the word third. You've got a little carried away but yeah I just think you don't make it personal dude like you just don't like. I criticize people every day every day on this show but I never try I I mean I don't make it personal. I do everything in my power to not make it personal and that's just the move like and I know that people will be like. Oh It's just people are soft now man you don't you don't call another grown man out of his name you don't call him out of his name. It's just that simple but I'm glad he did apologize because he understood because I'm sure nobody would like for. He wouldn't like if anyone called in that. Like cool like. I've said plenty of things about Rex Ryan and his coaching ability over the years as much as I liked him as a personality. I think he's great for the game but I've never like you know. Made Fun of him. In that way. You know what I mean like. I think it was. It was silly but anyway that was kind of the big national uproar today so anyway we're done thanks to Laura and Greg.
