Fresh update on "bill russell" discussed on The Dan Patrick Show

"Not here and you don't want i'm gonna blame him because if fritzy had booked guest this hour you never would have gotten that opportunity so i blame todd for your limited. Todd gave me the lane there. And i took it in. Taught is not supposed to be on his computer. And he's he's sending me emails here about your limericks. But i'm not. I'm going to disregard those. He's supposed to be now. He just came up with headline note. Todd you're supposed to be either you're working or you're not. Aren't you supposed to be in temple today. Aren't you supposed to be observing something today. Stop emailing me. Robin georgia joins us. Hi rob what's on your mind today. Dan first time longtime caller loved the show. six to to ton We're actually traveling. My wife loves the show. I love the show. I got her turned down to the show Got a couple of words from last weekend and the best if you don't mind okay The worst was probably my cleveland browns. choke into kansas city there The bachelor's probably Ohio state going down to the ducks. Since i'm a big blue fan and We're just on our way up to maine gonna be clinton Connecticut tomorrow so. I wanted to know if we could stop in for me friday. No i don't think i could do that. Ron but i do appreciate you calling and and you and your wife and safe travels there. We're we're not open for business like that. I mean bosses are wanting it wanting us to be careful here and and and we will abide by that yes pong. It is nice of them to ask because most people shop and wait outside. Yeah we don't encourage you to do that either but you know we give off that vibe of come on in have meet friday with us. We'd love to but we can't. Now maybe if we went to some place where it was a public place we could do it but but not here but safe travels to me. Let's see what else do we have. Here rick and florida joining us. Hey rick what's on your mind. Hey good morning. Rainy south florida but then again. It's still summer still hurricane season. So you know it goes without saying good morning to front row back row. Angie marchofdimes towbar mclovin and fritzy. So you know dp We're contemporaries. I'm fifty seven. I have no interest in looking at that list. Because i don't want my blood pressure to go through the roof so i'm gonna let it go but as far as this. Tom brady ep. Here's the problem that i've always had with fans and people in and it's not that i'm trying to be a homer for my boy who turned sixty yesterday. Dan merino always have an issue when media and fans go go camping trips to to rate a player at the greatest of all time and and especially in team sports and the ultimate t- sports like football. But i'm gonna use the example that i always use your you were cincinnati reds fans. Going up your guy. Johnny bench to world series to mvp my diet yogi berra eleven championships three. Mvp's i don't hear you'll get better not only not the greatest player of all time. Not even the greatest time that always go to your guy johnny bench so when the media when it's convenient for them to use camping kids that they want us tip bill russell if not greater than real. My guy willis street. So tom brady does not even crack my top five all right. Well thank you rik fine. I mean everybody's got an opinion. Everybody has you know. Criteria what they factor in lebron james going to go down his greatest basketball player of all time. In my opinion he will go down as the greatest basketball player of all time. He's going to be the all time leading score. He's the number of times he played in the nba finals. Titles that he's won mvp. He's one What he's done on a consistent basis he's going to be to me the greatest player of all time. Now you know if. I want to go championships. Yes michael jordan. One six never lost but that doesn't make him the greatest player of all time. He missed a lot of playoffs finals. That's never held against him. We hold it against lebron if you lose in the nba finals. I think it will go down in history as the was decorated basketball player of all time. And we do pick and choose because if you say about championships than its bill russell. Yeah but okay. We'll then it's not about just championships. Lebron gave you consistency. He gave you durability he he he's always in the finals feels like there's a parallel i think with him in in Tom brady that although lebron has it feels like better numbers consistently but you know. He's got more losses in the finals. But it just feels like just getting to the super bowl even if you lose lost what three. But he lost close super bowls to the giants twice and they lost to the eagles but he played. I mean through for five hundred yards and they lost to the eagles. Lebron took i think the worst team that's ever gone to an nba finals. And they played the spurs and you know. San antonio was full hall of famers concluding their coach home. But yeah. I know that's on a side topic here but you know when you talk about greatest player of all time. You're just trying to understand. okay. What is the rationale between picking somebody. Yeah paulie okay so take this to the nba if you said resume but takeaway resume in your lifetime watching basketball. Who was a player that when he was at his best was so much. Better than number. Two was a kareem at his peak. Was it blank at their peak. Is our player in your lifetime. Watch sport where like this is by far the best player in the sport and number two is number. Two by far kareem. Gotta yeah i mean cream. Woods canvassed freakishly great in the seventies in any miss. That tv era where he at his peak. You got revitalized with magic. But he he could do everything. I mean to give you thirty and seventeen and blocked shots and he just any add so much talent grace athleticism. There was nobody like him. There hasn't been anybody like him in the history of the sport. Like you'll get people. Try to emulate steph curry nobody. I mean we've had people try to emulate michael jordan. Nobody even tries to emulate kareem right. Nobody and now you know. We have no real demand for big ben at least playing down low. Meaning was unstoppable. I thought he could scored one hundred points and again. I thought he could have matched wilt at age. Twenty four cream average thirty five points per game seventeen rebounds five assists and they estimated four and a half because they didn't count blocks back then they estimated they went back at it and looked at it. They said about four and a half blocks shooting would a player like that work though today probably not because he would develop different skills now and probably wouldn't have developed that skyhook mean trading for threes. So yeah all. I know is somebody will be do a counterattack. And you'll have somebody win with big big big players dominate you inside because it i mean you have to guard. My guys is well. You might be shooting threes. But i just think somebody is going to be counterintuitive and saying. Hey why don't you guard. My big like if shack is playing. Now why would. I take advantage of shack down. Low.

Is the BIG3 Here to Stay?

"While to sean. You recently wrote an in-depth story on the big three as it returns to action. After cancelling the twenty twenty season due to covid nineteen. How did this come onto your radar and before you wrote this story. Did you consider yourself. A big fan. Obviously had heard about the victory. You know anything associated with by going to make the news. And so i've been away for a couple of years but i hadn't really thought about pursuing a story on it just because of come looking for a connecting line to something that was relevant to area here in vegas Just randomly data models. Pr e mails saying of combines than be here in vegas. I mean might as well go check it out. See what it's about. The combine was a our canaan. Basketball academy argued vegas kind of a small local gym right off the strip so little bit away from audit lists glamour walk in and almost like high school gym. That you look to your left is q. Other familiar faces. Little walk. Past is key. I look to my left and bill russell. It's just sitting there casualty in a chair glance. Though there's no way as i was i was frozen. I don't wanna be awkward. So i kept walking and tried to play it off as you move around the gym. They had rap music loud but people mingling and talking and so it's pretty immersive. Experience is kind of looking around legends. Like i said bill. Russell is dr j. in obviously basketball's going on so eventually i look towards according to seeing guys are actually you know trying hard obviously. They're trying to get drafted so they've given a thrall warm. Nba guys that you know you know what made billions of dollars trying just as hard as you know some unknown phases which may see out there and so you realize pretty quickly after be something. That was pretty serious insignificant.

"bill russell" Discussed on What It Takes

"Away from it and my gender wants to win every game possible and nothing anymore. Externally i- tony could do to change it and so operate in a place. Where thank you gone. Is you know that you are right. Russell's agenda would get tested again and again even as a star member of the celtics in nineteen sixty the team traveled to lexington kentucky where he and his african american teammates couldn't get a meal so they refused to play couple of things about that. Most people don't know we insisted that the why play again. 'cause i did i want to make it so that these guys take it a bug us. We are men who can take care of themselves. And that's what i wanted to emphasise. Add wanting us so that the black guys did not play the way guys did play and i in fact i applaud infinitely because it us to say are not going to blow this. This is totally unacceptable and then no compromisers. It can be made and to our knowledge of a marmoset correct. But i don't think that was the last all why game in the nba. Russell was outspoken and uncompromising as he was intimidating on the basketball court in nineteen sixty three when medgar evers was murdered in jackson. Mississippi russell traveled to jackson to start an integrated basketball camp. On the city's playgrounds. He had just won his fifth nba championship the following year. He marched with martin. Luther king junior and in nineteen sixty seven. He sat alongside muhammad ali and supported his refusal to fight in vietnam. It was these actions as well as his stature as a basketball player that president barack obama highlighted when he gave bill russell the presidential medal of freedom in two thousand ten bill. Russell spoke to the academy of achievement. In two thousand eight. You can find out a lot more about him on the academy's website achievement dot org. I'm alice winkler.

Interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

"The game, the structure, the style of the game that you played back to the basket center right trying to get high percentage shots closer to the basket that game has been completely forgotten, and there's very few. There's nobody who plays the center position the way you did with the back to the basket and it's like try to get the highest value shots the furthest away. But three pointers as much as you can does this style interest you disinterested you look down on it. You say you don't know how to play the game properly. Well, you know there, there are different theories about how to play the game but I think getting high percentage shots really makes a lot of sense, but it also has to dovetail with your defensive strategy also. So a great team like the Bill Russell. F- Celtics. Bill was able to to stymie any shots around the hoop and. His team. Would run and get high percentage shots down down court, and that was a winning strategy era. I mean, nobody's playing center. The way you did that is totally gone now. I think. So but that doesn't mean that someone cat had that type of skill and still come in effect the game. In a meaningful way, we talked earlier today. One of the things you said, the eighty five finals against the Celtics was one of your most important moments as a player. One of your crowning moments as a player you were the. MVP that year you guys won the Lakers one but you had to go through the Memorial Day massacre where you guys got crushed by like forty points a game over in the middle of third order and a down moment and I lived in Boston at that moment, it looked like are going to go on to destroy them. How did you come back to win and why do you think of that as one of your crowning moments as a player that series? Well I think that? What happened to me personally in that series was. Once, we made it into the finals I kind of relaxed. and. So I went into that first game thinking that. The worst is over and you know the the worst was yet to happen. So. It kind of woke me up and made me realize that I had to kick my game up a couple of levels in order to. Finish off what we started out to do because we lost. In eighty four to the Celtics and Gabe a game away. And that ended up being the the crucial game. How could you go into? A series against the Celtics who had Larry Bird who series plate you know clearly one of the great players of that time how you Gonna Like Oh, we got this. No. I didn't think that we got this but for me personally, I figured I've done my job where we're in the finals. Things. Think things will be alright and they work. One. Of the one of the chapters, one of the parts of the book that I really thought was really interesting. You talk about athletes and what they must do with how they have role models at the happy aware that they are role models and you say we can't pretend athletes are influencing our children's thinking and behavior. So we must demand higher standards from them like it or not college and Professional Sports. Machines are turning them into role models, and if they aren't willing to accept that responsibility as part of the contract, then they should seek another profession. Strong position. A little bit about why you feel that way when you went through that life right superstar High School Athlete College, Athlete, and you know the way that superstar athletes from a teen age are coddled. They are given you know love for their athletics points for their character. Society is not training them to be role models, but then they become big college players big prosed and we expect them to be role models. Are they even ready for that? I don't know you know for me. Being a black American and in the era that I grew up in all black. realized. That They would be judged by the actions of. Any problem. Black Person. And so. That burden. Was something that that you assumed. Soon, as you've got to do anything in a in a prominent fashion, you assume that burden because you knew that. All black people would be. Judged on whatever it was that you did and he's screwed up A. Set, the race. I mean that's absolutely right and you talk about that I came to realize that the lew alcindor that for the younger folk that was his name forty, fifty years ago the lew alcindor everyone was cheering. Was it really the person they wanted to be they wanted me to be the clean cut example of racial equality the poster boy for anybody from any background regardless of race religion or economic standing could become an American success story to them. I was living proof that racism was a mythological beast like Jack. Elope when when the audience is feeling like that right I assume the media is part of it. How do you? How do you rebel against that? Well. You just have to show them that they're wrong and. That that is not the case, there's a whole lot that has to be done. I into earlier. Right after Dr King was assassinated, I was involved in a demonstration on UCLA's campus and people. Would just standing there. and. It was a silent. stood. There for an hour in silence and some of US had signs and a number of times people came up to me and said, you're getting the opportunity to play in the NBA. What do you demonstrating for and they did not understand how these two things did not relate to each other at all the fact that I, I was getting opportunity to play in the NBA did not mean that what happened to Dr King was a tragedy and a crime and the.

Sports Strike Against Racism

"This summer athletes have taken the lead by using their platforms to stand up against police brutality. The WNBA, has consistently protested throughout the year with numerous players even sitting the season out and on August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, four years after Colin Kaepernick began his anthem protests something historic happened athletes across the board streit and refuse to play today we're discussing reactions to this incredible moment in sports. This is the not. On August Twenty Third Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by police in Kenosha Wisconsin where we're calling this episode on. August twenty seven twenty twenty the day after the Milwaukee Bucks and players from the NBA WNBA NFL. Major League Baseball Major League soccer and tennis champion Naomi Osaka all refused to play or practice in an unprecedented strike in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake the NBA postponed the playoffs for two days. The first time that games have been postponed in this manner since Bill Russell led a strike in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, one after a day of deliberation players in the. NBA. Playoff Games pending further action. You're excited I. Know You're excited for sports to return obviously, this season has been one of a kind and unprecedented in. So many ways I want to know how do you feel now the players are using their platform in this way to be honest I feel this very strange sense of excitement. I need some really tragic kind of set of circumstances but I have been feeling conflicted after NBA Games kind. Came back I had been motivated by occurrences like kyrie irving standing in solidarity with Wnba players saying like Oh actually, I'll pay your salary. If you don't feel like you can play whether it's you know a reaction to corona virus or your desire to protest how support seeing. Lebron Kinda start almost every post game interview with a demand to arrest the cops that killed Brianna. Taylor. That made me really happy Siamese. Floor of the same energy that we have tours. Justice for Briana told, even seeing black lives matter on jerseys and in the court kind of made me feel a little better. I realized yesterday that this was the inspiration really been waiting for but now I'm wondering what comes next of course, how were you reacting to everything? You know I'm not like the world's biggest sports fan I do. I am a fan of black women and so seeing the WNBA protests. Throughout this year, but especially, the summer that felt released significant. Still I've always hesitant to look to athletes during these like highly political moments just because it's not the job that they set out to do. But you know as I started to see people sharing statements aerial Atkins from the Washington mystics we're going to say, well, we need to say and people need to hear that. They don't support us I'm fine with that. At the end of the day I'm GonNa make them good anywhere that I have to it basketball. It's not. Just what it is Chris Weber's telecast if not now when Not doing a pandemic. and. Countless lives being lost if not now when that is me in tears so lucid in that moment and so real and also just seeing how so many other sports leagues join them in protests were. Teased. Happen I mean it just shows. The hate people's heart. The thing is though is that as we were starting to develop this episode today so much has changed already in that the players in the NBA have agreed to return to playing the playoff season. Later, this week I don't think that all the progress is gone but I'm wondering what what happens. Now you know thought that same whiplash like I said, I felt like this was finally the type of inspiration leadership that I've been hoping to see from such a wide body players. Leaks, cross-border. It was truly abused beautiful, and I think now we need to do more I'm hoping that that since this is now on the table, players can put more pressure on owners to. Work with the people they are most connected to some of the richest and most powerful people in this nation are in the speed dial of most NBA owners even just the day if feels effective part of I, think resuming the season was the players putting pressure on the NBA to address the social unrest we've been dealing with all summer in some ways. So they started a foundation that's dedicated to investing in black causes. They're giving hundreds of millions of dollars they've given like you know the players, some approved protest phrases that they can use. They can put black lives matter on the courts and things like that and what I liked about this moment is at the NBA players were like that's what I usually do. And that's actually still not enough. So I'm hoping that we can see continued forward motion in that way something that I enjoy in this moment was seeing the NBA take the WNBA's league they have been holding it down all your curves pressing in. So many ways the thing is, is that WNBA, players, they don't make as much money as NBA players do they have really put their necks out there for social justice speaking up. Protecting black lives in many ways, it seems in some ways that they have more to lose by doing it. You know I am maybe two degrees below cautiously optimistic. That is a lot better than cynical, which is where I was before.

"Wanted them anymore. Jordan left at the perfect time miss. The attention returned to the wizards for too bizarre seasons. Durant still plan so we don't know about him yet. Bill Russell was the only Pantheon Guy who actually nailed his exit and yet for four solid decades. His relationship with the one city ever played for remained unsettled. Habita- get when the Celtics retired his number nineteen seventy-two bill. Russell skipped the ceremony. He no showed it who does that while he made the same point. Again and again his loyalties lay with his teammates. Read are back and Walter Brown. That's it not the fans definitely not. The city didn't care if everyone went back or so. He claimed by the end of our second day. Together I gotta say I didn't totally believe him. Deep down he still cared about all this stuff. Obama Koby Wilt Sam Jones Larry Siegfried the Trophy case that Boston Herald headline every little piece mattered. And maybe he needed the time to. You wouldn't want to be a basketball star in the fifties and sixties idolized for everything on the court treated like a second class citizen off the court the first wave of black. Mba's stars Russell. Oscar Elgin Kareem even well. They were unquestionably damaged by the experience by the unforgivable hypocrisy of it. All even Russell's teammates didn't fully realize how horrible it was during a sports century episode about Russell in Nineteen Ninety nine. Bob cousy actually broke down during his interview. Believing let Russell down as a friend more than anything. That cousy never fully realized how difficult things were for him. Russell channeled all that pain and resentment into winning. Nobody came through more times. Put more thought into it gave more of himself to one pursuit. He remembered everyone who helped him. Everyone had doubted him everyone who never appreciated him and the whole experience in Boston and in America to left him sitting on an island three thousand miles away making one sorry city sweat out mistakes. That could never change. We said our goodbyes told Russell that I hoped he would return to Boston one day then few months later we premiered Mr Restless House Abang that theme home honestly I WanNa viewers to think man. I hope he forgives Boston Sunday. A few months later he actually did turns out. That eight foot statue was going downtown where the Russell showed up or not. The city needed it more than he did. The Mir begged him to return so the Celtics Owners Russell's daughter his friend. Charlie Adam Silver. Everyone else rustled trusted in his life. Eventually the Great Bill Russell caved. He agreed to come back to Boston. November first two thousand thirteen. He turned eighty six years old just last month. Every few months word starts brandon that? He's not feeling that well that he can't move around anymore and then every June there. He is front and Center at the Finals Again. The NBA sends into the deciding game so he can present the finals. Mvp Trophy remember. Russell would have easily won nanna tendencies of that. A word existed in the fifties and sixties. Now it's called the Bill Russell. Nba Finals Most Valuable Player award and in a Weird Way. That actually turned out better. He wins every year. You know what else I believe. Those few minutes on stage with the new champs might be keeping him around the recognition and respect the happy handshakes the reverence from the best player. Does your who just peaked as a competitor. Only suddenly there's Bill Russell and they just melt like stick of butter. I think he loves every moment of it. I think it brings back to the only time she was ever truly happy. I think it's the number one thing that keeps Bill Russell going when you're the greatest winner of all time even all these decades later. You still want to be where the winning is..

"Cousy says it pained him to watch African Americans struggle for acceptance and inclusion but he remained quiet and cousy says says Russell's anger made it hard for them to form a friendship like the ones cousy had enjoyed with Chuck Cooper and some of his other black teammates. Let's go have a bill. Let's go to the movie together. Whatever socialize outside of the unit? I was a senior member. I had a good relationship with the media I always have so I could have reached out and perhaps shed is paying a little bit with them. You know I never did that with us. Bob cousy retired tired at the end of the sixty two sixty three season after yet another successful tidal run. He and Russell led the Celtics to six. NBA Championships in their seven seasons. Together the Celtics gathered for a postseason dinner and bill. Russell took to the podium to speak and what Russell said he said. Was You meet very few men in life like Bob cousy. I consider cousy like a brother and Russell became emotional at this point. cousy who's he doesn't really remember that either. Obviously this should have been special to me when I read what he said. It bought back a slight Komo and it brought a tear my I but I don't know why I don't remember it more specifically other on ninety years old. That's something thing to do with it. You know when I read these quotes to cousy during an interview cousy just started shaking his head. He said what was I thinking. Why didn't I get up and go across the room and give us a hug in the fall of nineteen sixty three? The Celtics became Bill Russell's team unless that had happened much earlier earlier Russell retired as a player in nineteen sixty-nine after thirteen seasons in the NBA. He earned eleven championship rings. cousy did a lot of thinking over three decades about how he'd fallen short as a team leader but he didn't talk about it until two thousand and one. ESPN interview about Russell. And he was talking in a breezy way about Russell's extraordinary athleticism but the topic shifted.

"Is only a game. I'm Karen Given. There's not a lot that Bob cousy could have done better on the basketball court. He led the League in assists for eight straight years he won six NBA championships with the Boston Celtics. But cousy now ninety one years old and when he looks back he feels like there are some something. He wishes he had done differently. That the end of the day when you're sitting reviewing your life you have a lot of league. That's as to how you should've could've could have done things better over the years. COUSY has thought a lot about one of those regrets. His relationship with former teammate. Bill Russell I felt some guilt. Okay all the not reaching out to them and that's what I did eventually. Here's only games Gary Wallich on a cold autumn morning Bob. cousy greets me at the front on tour as the leaves fall around his home in Worcester massachusettes. He's lived there alone since his wife died twenty thirteen. I shake his hand and ask Kim how he's doing. Never ask a ninety year old that question. He says he brandishes his cane. For emphasis. We sit it has enormous dining room table and talk about his early days on the Celtics. His hands move like he's throwing passes to invisible teammates as he discusses his rookie year. Well we had some talented players. We had some not so talented players. cousy says that his fellow rookie Chuck Cooper was a five or six on a ten scale. Talent wise but cooper was something else. Jackie Robinson broke the color line. Baseball in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. Three years has laid up on a wall around got up at the meeting and said the cell expect Chuck Gupta Undo Cain. cousy had no black friends growing up in a Manhattan tenement intimate. He had no black teammates in high school or college now. He was roommates with the first black player selected in the NBA draft. They went to movies. Listen to jazz and drank bars. Their bond was tested on February. Twenty Eighth Nineteen fifty two after a game in Raleigh and he wasn't into allowed to register hotel with us and Chuck and I somehow found out. There was asleep going through all night at twelve. Thirty to in New York with a connection. Boston cousy and Cooper went to union station to wait for the sleeper train. Who is doing and after three or four visits? It's like midnight and we have to go with. They made their way to the restroom. cousy was unprepared for what he saw. Stupid big wight signs with a blackout. A one pointing light says colored the other pointing left says white and I was stunned. I did. I was ashamed to be white. I didn't know what to say to them. I said come on. Let's go out to the end of the platform and we peed together. Other their friendship grew off the court and on it cooper was good player but cousy point guard was beginning to transform the league. This is the one thousand nine hundred eighty s and he's a little bit like Elvis Presley Music or James Dean and film that's writer Gary Pomerantz. He's interviewed cousy over fifty fifty times. He's a renegade pushing out against the conservative norms dribbling behind his back and and throw a no look passes he was Adding sort of a jolt of caffeine to the NBA. A jolt of style put. The celts were only slightly better than mediocre. They were a team struggling to find itself self. The Celtics needed a big man to make it to the next level in a trade after the nineteen fifty-six draft the Celtics Acquired Center Bill Russell less changed the dynamic in every way he was a fierce shot blocker. He put a trauma on opposing shooters and he was a great rebounder under an opponent would take a shot and miss and there's Russell rising rising six ten long lean and springy getting the rebound and half turning and snap map passing the outlet to cousy Russell and cousy created a fast break style. That was nearly indefensible. These are in many ways the ultimate teammates they they were both murderously competitive and very quickly. The Celtics emerged as a force to be reckoned with Russell and coups a AH relatively tight relationship on the court. That's forward satch sanders. He joined the Celtics in nineteen sixty. The hell out of respect for each other. That was is clear off the court. They were not spending a lot of time in each other. Racial tensions were high in the US that carried over into some NBA va locker rooms. But Sanders says that wasn't the case with the Celtics. cousy says Red Auerbach who he alone called by his first name. Arnold created clubhouse harmony and a rather unusual way but I think on old frankly solved the black white situation putting well. He tweeted everyone saying badly. So less than I- relationship was the same as any two people that are working towards a goal. The goal was to win and championships and with Russell. The Celtics began to do that but something else was happening. At the outset of the Celtics Dynasty Gary Ripon Marantz Russell and cousy together for seven years as teammates. And if you put that on the civil rights timeline. It's roughly from the end of the Montgomery bus boycott to Dr Dr King's March on Washington address and nineteen sixty three. That is the heart of black freedom. Struggle in Russell would engage in that struggle in in a way that few athletes did on October seventeenth nineteen sixty one. The Celtics played a preseason exhibition. Game in Lexington Kentucky Satch Sanders. Remember what happened at the team hotel before the game would go through the eat into. This won't really cancer people. They weren't happy about they gathered in Russell's room at the Hotel Russell and Sanders along with Casey Jones and Sam Jones decided not to play. Then read didn't WanNa turn away from. I'm Nice Pay Day for the team so he tried to convince. The African American Celtics stay and Russell said going home. The way players gave it consideration but but in the end decided to play the game. Seven White Celtics played including Bob cousy. Who didn't protest? I have no explanation for this feeling as I do about social justice being Cotonou team when Gary pomerantz originally asked cousy about about the game he said he didn't remember it cousy said why did I play. What was I thinking it was an exhibition game? Why didn't I say something I think he I was so focused on being Bob cousy? Some of the most essential American history of the second half of the century passed him by when over his his head. He was focused on winning. He was focused on his endorsements and his brand and it just.

"So even if you're down to how ready is he going to be? But it's interesting that this news came out after they lost game one agree. Because Chris Hayes also say he's been doing on the court work earlier in the week. So why release this now? I talked about, obviously the worst case scenario for Katie was coming to pass if they won the championship without him, but on the flip side rescues, what a great look for Katie, if they're down to one and looking like they're hanging on for dear life. And he comes back saves the day, if he saves the day might be finals, MVP he will. Okay if, if, if he's K D, And they win it. He's fine. MVP. Here's the thing. Number one, it kills all that narrative about needing him doesn't totally remove the fact that you went there in the first place, but certainly puts that to, to rest a lot, and then does it change free agency. Like the question is, is would he is the only thinking about leaving because for validation because of the naysayers, you know, does he really like it there, but he knows? He wants to get this image. I'll never get the credit that he feels. He deserved it. Maybe he does deserve. It is long as he's playing in that. But if he saves the day, and then why if you saved the day, I would say, the K D if that's an narrow plays out, you come back down to one you win finals. MVP lead them to the championship. At least they one more year 'cause then go for four straight. Nobody else's done. This Bill Russell playing the new arena, and then you can leave the next year if you want, but this could work out, great for k. If he's himself. Visit I agree with you. It's a great thing. I don't know any basketball team in the history of the game, couldn't use thirty points a night. That's what Katy gives you the play thirty tonight. There's really no downside to him coming back skill. Because he's the one guy that when you're outside shots, not working you can dump it down to him on the block, and he can shoot turn around and shoot over his left or right shoulder over anyone so him coming back now not only is he a scoring option. He remember one scoring option because he's the one guy that can neutralize day enough. There's not enough trap. There's not enough defenses that can take a guy that seven put tall with a trajectory of launching the ball at ten feet. Tall ten feet high. So there's nothing those no downside to Kevin Durant and considering the Iggy might be hurt more serious than we know or might miss extended time skip. I don't know how you win this series, turn this series route without cable, you. So now you don't think they can win the series without any because the gome. Well, eighty sailing Jay Hickey say with. Five game to put up even after nine days off. Remember he gave away after he clogged the claw night. Yeah. He play good. We did in the garden, the trapping to get the ball out of quasi Iggy.

That I would like to give short shout out to Billy boy only because the other day. He literally tweeted wouldn't be so weird if the Celtics got Markeith Morris, and no it wouldn't be that weird in two.

The funniest the Kennedy conversation was just said the exact same stuff. You did the first as like the first time we met him direct because he was drunk this time drunk drunk last time drunker. Yeah. Well, we walked into the hotel to check in. I looked over to the bar. And I noticed Kenny was just slumped just this was four hours ago. We just talked maybe twenty minutes ago, even more. Slumped having himself a night, you know, he's very much. So it's last call for Kinney. What like may may saying like I used to like dole out hard fouls when I when I might high school. He's like, yeah. That's because you're fat and slow. I think you should just be like the inhouse roaster just keeps everybody on their toes. Nice to everyone else. I love them anymore. That is like you. You definitely couldn't handle moonshine Kenny baby. I'm sarah. She's like not in the south. You're not. They would Lynch you. Not wrong. Kinney there. Yeah. Listen, I've been to western Massachusetts. I know. And it's like it was a jarring statement. He said he did say we'll have a news for you on a news for me.

I because I was a soon as he walked in the room close personal affront, Scott shell who have we have time. We should definitely have back on this weekend. But are close personal friends show? Head of the NBA players. We saw spendy. But we thought we were big time and him, buddy. You you've got to dance. The storm flaws in your ass off. We don't want to break the momentum. But yeah, it was we were just we pal Scott. And then he just turns to me, and he goes there's Bill, and I just turned around and instructs Bill Russell and his lovely wife straight as a little extreme Dev's, basically dead sprint it in basically hop skip and jump to the bar. Jolly old time. Also like of just turning because I could see like y'all pointing at somebody. But at this it could be anybody literally anybody so turn around its Bill Russell, he's not six nine not anymore. Was he ever is shrinking rapidly? He wasn't six nine that. I'm even putting him higher. My six five told you think is. I don't he really like 'cause I got on before he set down. I don't doesn't away six nine even with the order, the older crouch. I like six he just didn't seem six nine to you. He had it leaves arouse you weren't paying. He had the grace, and charisma of someone seven to as what I would say, I think it was the hat because he wears the hat tilted like TI. I don't who knows. How tall you that four to six inches? Who knows how the guy that was shack. I was clearly shack. But yeah, I shook his hand. He right like when we walked over. He was I don't know if I like the looks of these two young jets 'cause everyone's wearing suits me dollar wearing like jumpsuits, fitted hats and Tyler walked up first. And he couldn't hear us at all his hearing. That's when he gave like the dirty. Look, I was like I can't tell you didn't fuck with us. Then again, I was like, oh he just can't here right now.

LeBron James of Los Angeles Lakers says NFL owners have slave mentality

"James went after NFL owners. He was critical of NFL owners during the latest episode of the shop earlier tonight Friday night where he said NFL owners, quote have a slave mentality. In the NFL. They got a bunch of old white men owning teams, and they got the slave mentality. And it's like this is my team you do what the blank, I tell you to do all we get rid of your all. So there's more of that. I'd like to see it in its content. I watched tonight on HBO. I'm not that critical of LeBron because of the show the show's a barber shop, that's what the show's all about with celebrities celebrities hanging out in a barbershop hip. Hop stars actors people they're having fun and his executive producer and partner. Maverick carter. Also Todd Gurley was talking business and rapper ice cube. So I'm not going to sit here and analyze every word that was said in a barbershop where a bunch of guys are talking. But the key question that we need to talk about over the weekend. Because this is a big story. My good friend. Chris Moore who was on before me said that this could be a news dump over the weekend. We might forget it. I disagree because we had the government shutdown. We have bad weather on the east coast. Everyone's traveling for the holidays, we might forget about it. We won't forget about this. Because LeBron James is the most important and biggest name athlete in the country with all due respect to Jordan Tom Brady. Tiger woods. It's lebrons world right now. But I think what you have to ask. And I'll ask it for you. Is what is LeBron trying to get out of this? Why would LeBron James want to pick a fight with Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones right to white guys? Really rich owners number one in one a who do a lot and are very inclusive with African Americans. Robert Kraft, obviously does so much good all the charity work. Did he does Jerry Jones all the countless African American players that he's had who got onto greatness who love him sit in the owner's box. Why would LeBron James do this? I'm trying to figure that out eight five five two one two four two two seven. But I'll tell you why he's doing it because LeBron's branching out of basketball. He's in the real estate business. He's in the movie business. He's in the music business. He wants people to know his feelings on this. But Ken, LeBron sit down and have a deep debate. And a discussion on this topic with Jim Brown Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Bill Russell some of the leaders when it comes to the African American community in sports in our lifetime. I think you can I think what LeBron was trying to do is make a point that. There are no guaranteed contracts in the NFL. But does he. Have to use the term slave
