"Of our Westwood one coverage. And it's just absolutely incredible. And Dean Smith, who was born in Kansas, died in North Carolina, played at Kansas for fall gallon. Won the NCAA championship in 1952 the year I was born. He was a coach. Just as a kid, you'd be before he goes to North Carolina. So this is just the harmonic convergence of all things perfection. And now, now it's up to the players. And I love, I love the demeanor of the coaches and I love the fans and their passion. You know, this rock chunk jayhawk stuff, whatever that means. I'm just not quite sure. And you got all these going to be flying in from around the world. And the challenge for all of us. On this championship moment, is to bring it back up to where it was. Because that game of forever on Saturday night, that will be forever ingrained in our site. And that level, that level of play, the level of intensity, the level of commitment and sacrifice discipline and honor and mental acuity and emotional passion. That is hard to duplicate. As are you as are you, Bill Walton. I honestly, I just love listening to you. I love your passion. I love everything about it. And in the couple minutes I have left with you. Man, I broke your car. No. One day, one day. Yes. I'm going to make one day in my life. I'm going to make it. And I'm going to show up at your house. And I'm going to suggest you, I'm going to give you a brand new Tesla. No, no. No, I don't need a car. It's just, it was just it was just a rear windshield. It's no big deal. It's a better place to stop. I'm a man. I'm a man of duty. I'm a man of obligation. I know that. I'm a man of responsibility. So I carry the heavy burden of destroying your life. No, stop. You're the best man. You're the best Bill. So listen, I love championship days. In the last two minutes I have to go. And the last few minutes I have with you here, you're the perfect person to ask the conversation about coach K and better than wooden all time great wooden's too. He's now won or wooden's one and two. What do you think of when you hear that conversation? The questions about I was there the day that John wouldn't was named the greatest coach ever. Not the greatest basketball coach, not to grade this college course, but the greatest coach ever. And the guys behind are more Vince Lombardi Bear Bryant field Jackson Don Shula and red auerbach. And most of those guys were mad as can be. Particularly feel about where they were on the list. And then when red found out that he was behind Phil from inside his coffin. We're along these lines. This is a very nice thing that you guys say about me. But there is no way that anyone can ever accurately say who the best is. What are the measurements? What are the standards? And then coach wouldn't took a pause and he said, I will acknowledge and accept that I'm among the best. And many transferred it again. He said, I made a mistake with the pyramid of success and I want to apologize for that. Because I left the word love out of the pyramid of success and love is the most powerful and important word in our language and culture until the power of love supersedes the love of power we have no chance at success of moving forward and then he closes. When he said I looked around the room and he said, I also want to apologize to everyone in this room and say I'm sorry and that I have not been able to do more to help you. Coach wouldn't live the life of service to others. Coach wouldn't life changed. He was the first great player in the history of basketball. He got hurt. He could no longer play as that happens to everybody. He made a transition. He became this remarkable coach. I have, I don't believe that he knows or he knew how great a coach he was and how incredibly important he was in and enabling us to shape our lives. Mike just like Vince Lombardi Bear Bryant, Bill Jackson, Don Shula, and red auerbach. He's among the best. And rich, how many children do you have? We have 6 children. Three of 14 grandchildren. And when somebody asked me, who's the best? I just say I love them all. And I'm happy and privileged honored and most fortunate to be a parent to be a grandparent to be a husband to be a house boy to be someone who's able to be part of something really special the way I've been here all this weekend in New Orleans. Mostly though, I am grateful that rich eisen still takes my calls. I love you, Bill Walton, have a great time tonight, man. I said, what a game. It's all right there. How can we duplicate the game of forever? Let's go. Let's give it a try. You can't finish what you don't start. It's going to take everything that we have. Let's go. Take care. It's your own peril. You've been suitably warned to be in town early yet. New Orleans Jimmy Buffett, Grateful Dead. John fogerty Neville brothers. Osbourne. I go ico to tomatoes, Leon Russell, Doctor John. Let's rock, let's play, put the ball in the air, put me in coach. I'm ready. I love rich eisen. I love Westwood one. Have a great time tonight bill will be listening. You're the best. Thanks the call. There you go. That was me that was incredible. Wow. Wow. So if you have your Bill Walton bingo card, you know at the middle of the bingo card is either Grateful Dead or John Wooden. Yeah, always. Okay. I think at this point it's the dead. It's okay. Let's just assume it's Grateful Dead. Okay. I have this bingo. Unbelievable. I have the bingo of jamba juice, Mookie blaylock, Grateful Dead, Pearl Jam, Dan.

"In the same way that Pearl Jam named themselves Mookie blaylock. But then Armando Bangkok. Such a wonderful player. Duke has all the stars all the hype all the publicity and all of everything and they've got coach pay here and then North Carolina and the biggest Hubert Davis who are significant number of people there in North Carolina did not want Hubert Davis to be the coach for whatever reasons. And then all of a sudden he becomes the coach they struggle mildly. They get blown out early by Kentucky in the season. They're not playing in well, but then they find a way. And you got Armando bake out who's playing fantastic setting records out there. And then he just hurt with four or 5 minutes to go and then he fouls out. He comes back from the dead. I mean, this was Dan pastorini on steroids here. And so it all happening in a brilliant scene that his story is all right there and every time shuttle team scores, you think the game is over and then 30 seconds later it switches and it's just back and forth and back and forth. And in the super dome, which is like this monster's place, you know, you can fit 5 other stadiums inside the super dome and the fans were just everywhere there's so much anticipation and joy and angst and suffering and happiness and joy and it was all right there and then at the very end of the game chocolate teens are better than love makes a couple of brilliant offensive plays and North Carolina wins the game. And it's like you're writing this story. You're making the movie is all right there you're creating it and you think it's all scripted and somebody else comes in and writes the ending to it. Oh my gosh. What a game what a moment what is seen for the rest of my life rich I will be able to say that I was there. I was there and I saw it all and to see how happy all the winners were and to see how sad all the losers that's what makes our lives so great. Yes his sport, yes it's a platform yes it means so much to all of us and to have the fans right there and one of the things that goes on in these moments. At the highest level, you have to learn to embrace and love pressure and risk and doubt and uncertainty because you never know how these things are going to play out. I mean, it's like a bicycle ride. It's like going to a Grateful Dead concert. It's like life itself. You never know what's going to happen and you better be ready for every eventuality. And these guys is going to be tough as can be for North Carolina to come back from that. Because generally, what happens in these games is that the team that plays the best on Saturday night, which was Kansas. Kansas is on fire and no bacci is just lightens it up out there. David McCormick has never played better in his life. Everybody, Jalen Wilson, Christian Brown, Mitch lightfoot to one Harris. I mean, these guys were all playing great. The only guy that didn't play well for Kansas on Saturday night was Remy Martin, which is a good sign for Kansas 'cause he can come back now, he'll be on the edge. But generally who plays best on Saturday night does not play best on Monday nights. But the problem for North Carolina rich is that they put so much into that game and they were celebrating at the end of that game as if it was the championship. And you can not get back up for the championship until you come down. And hopefully they've been able to come down. Bangkok's injury is significant here. If I'm Bill Sel, if I'm Kansas, I just say, okay, look. The storyline is North Carolina because they just beat coach K and they just beat duke. And that was the whole deal coming in here. We can not look back. We can not hold back, they're going to be emotionally tired. Caleb love in RJ Davis, leafy black. They can play all day long. And never have any sort of problems physically. Brady manic and Armando bay tropics is ankle. They're not in that same situation here. So if you're Kansas, your mindset is we are going to run. And we are going to run and we are going to run. And we are not going to stop and that some point they're going to wear down. North Carolina does not have the depth. But the stars for Kansas, they have to bring it. And you can't come out. You don't get a championship I sort of like hanging around and hope. Hope that the other team is going to not get it done. If you're success is based on the failures of others, that's not what championships are all about. And also these guys from Kansas. And the historical ties in between these two schools in the backgrounds of these two states where Smith and John mcclendon, bob Mackie do who's got a son on the North Carolina team, and they got somebody named pop on the team. It's such a wonderful story for everything. I love underdogs. You know, I do not have a personal face. I love Kansas basketball. I love what Bill shelf does. I love the transition that she made from the plodding team to the up and down. Yeah, let's get going. Let's have, let's have tons of guys like Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan and all these guys who can really run and really flat will be in perfect condition. We're just going to push the pace all the time. And then the North Carolina tradition with all that remarkable players, Billy Cunningham, bob mcadoo, Michael Jordan, Sam Perkins, James worthy, all these legends and the champions and the coaches and the fact that Roy Williams from Asheville played North Carolina coached at Kansas coach to North Carolina. This game tonight, Bill self and Hubert Davis, this is the first time ever in the history of the championship game that the coaches are both successors of the same person. That's interesting. Who played at UNC played for Frank Maguire and Dean Smith coached at Kansas 5 years won their championship with Danny Manning and Danny's part of our Westwood one coverage. And it's just absolutely incredible. And Dean Smith, who was born in Kansas, died in North Carolina, played at Kansas for fall gallon. Won the NCAA championship in 1952 the year I was born. He was a coach. Just as a kid, you'd be before he goes to North Carolina. So this is just the harmonic.

"Com slash rich eisen show for everything that you've missed, but our terrestrial radio audience is about to rejoin us. And that's what we're going to bring in in just three seconds time. Our next guest, he is back here on the rich eisen show with you, but back here on the program, love this man, love everything about him. He's one of the all time greats in playing basketball, collegiately. He's on the NBA 75th all time 75th anniversary all time team, and he's part of Westwood once coverage of the national championship game tonight. He is the great Bill Walton. How are you Bill? Championship day. Yeah. This is what we live for. The moment of truth, but right now we're the moment before the moment of truth. New Orleans Louisiana. Yeah, wow. History, the past, the present, the future, the war of 1812, the synergies, UNC, North Carolina, Kansas, teen Smith, Larry Brown, Roy Williams, Danny Manning, the 57 undefeated championship team from North Carolina that beat Kansas by one in that game that was wilt. Oh my gosh, UNC that year in 57, I was four. The that team was the second of 7 undefeated teams in the history of college basketball, coached by Frank McGuire. They beat dick Hart that day. Kansas ten championship games in their illustrious history, North Carolina 12 UCLA still has the record here, but wow, what a weekend here in New Orleans starting off Friday night with the Hall of Fame dinner in the French Quarter all the new people going in headlined by Manu yet, the guy that could catch a bat. Standing still. And Stanford and UConn women what a game Yukon was just brilliant Stanford could not break free offensively in Yukon one convincingly before getting just trounced as everybody did this year by South Carolina. Congratulations once again to Don staley. And then Saturday, oh my gosh, the game of forever. They didn't even go to bed. We got up Sunday and went to the Naismith awards over the World War II museum just a few blocks from where we are at our wonderful hotel, walker Kessler. He wins the defensive player of the year Ed Cooley Providence coach of the year and a remarkable speech, Beth bass was honored for women's basketball contributions. Oscar she waits, he was a player of the year. It was absolutely fantastic. John calipari always there for his players just a spectacular human being getting it done. But the show was just overrun by Jim Nance and his speech. Please Google that speech YouTube that speak gymnast speech at the Naismith awards Sunday morning. I study speakers. I study greatness. This was one of the greatest moments of my life. And then we had the Westwood one dinner last night in the French Quarter. That was only the top. And then today I'm on the rich eisen show. I'm having lunch with bob Pettit. And then the game tonight. One moment of sadness, though, before we get going here. Sure. Is that one of my coaches, Jean shoe? He passed away today at 93. Oh, I didn't know that. Say a prayer lie to candle and live your life and our lives in tribute and honor to the great gene shoe. But wow, more to give on Saturday night. It sure was Bill. I mean, that was truly unbelievable. It's so rare that a game that still looked forward to and so hyped lives up to it and surpasses it. What do you think was the difference in that game on Saturday night? What do you think? Games are won and lost when your best players outplayed their best players. And the game that Caleb love had, the same game that he had against UCLA. Caleb love is one of those really special dudes and I love jamba juice and my favorite jamba juice is chocolate peanut butter love. So every time I see Caleb love, I just think of how happy chocolate peanut butter love makes me. And his ability to score. I mean, ultimately, offense wins and the greatest offensive players. The guys who can just score when the defense is set and dug in, that's Kareem. And that's LeBron. That's what Michael Jordan. That's Larry Bird. And that's the guys who have written the history of this game. And so now you've got this guy Caleb loved. And I love underdogs. This game, this was a movie, this whole scene. And the Villanova in Kansas game. I mean, it really never became a game. Kansas just played perfect. They've been playing perfect ever since the halftime of the Miami game in the regional finals. And they will be a huge force to be reckoned with tonight. But let's talk about Saturday night, man. That game. The fans, I was sitting right in the corner of the court, just down the way from where our Westwood one broadcast position is. And I'm the prop. I'm the studio guy. And everything. And so I got this fantastic seat. And then the game is right there. And then just at 1 o'clock for me, is that North Carolina band? At two 30 is the North Carolina student section. And then directly behind me at 6 on the clock is the North Carolina fan section with the alumni and the sponsors and the boosters and all the parents and everything. And it was just incredible. And there's so much animosity. There's so much tension and tenacity and all the different things that go into great athletic competition. And that's just between the fans and so all the whole script of how this movie was going to be written up into the sunset on this big white horse Mexican lido and the trap and the incredible storylines of them coming and then losing and him saying to some acceptable we're not done yet and they're coming back and they're playing great and they got all the best players and then leaky black. Chocolate pizza butter love. The Brady man is I mean radioactive they're gonna name a band after in the same way that Pearl Jam named themselves Mookie blaylock. But then Armando Bangkok. Such a wonderful player..

"This is bitter stuff. Because duke denied the fab, the fab 5, and dukes denied so many people throughout the coach K tenure, and in the same way that people despise Tom Brady, people despise Mikey because they seem to always great, always good. Never dips, always there. When are you going to leave? Oh, you're not leaving. You're still there. Even now, people are thinking, coach K can't walk away from this now, the way that it ends you're one of those folks. We have, of course. Waiting to hear the coach case going to tell John Shire. Take a sheet, John. Relax. I got this. Those can be another 360. You know, we're 360 five. We'll do this again one more time. I can't talk about this. Because. There is no argument anymore, which is another remarkable facet of this situation in sequence, as I mentioned, greatest rivalry game ever. We've never seen a matchup between two teams that despise each other for the first time. It happens for the first time in the NCAA China. We've never seen it in a doer dot game for the first time. Yankees Red Sox had that one game playoff with Bucky dent then they did face each other in the ALCS a couple times. And split and neither game ended The Rain of an all time great. Unless you want to throw Grady little in there, but we can talk about that later on. But you know what I'm saying? The bears and the packers. It wasn't like Vince Lombardi's last game. Right. We've never seen a situation like this. Ever, which is why I hyped it like this and now that it's actually happened the way that it's happened have we ever seen a situation where in terms of a rivalry, it's not cyclical, like I keep talking about with Michigan Ohio, state told her these Buckeye fans. At one point, I'm going to come back around. You wait, took a little bit longer than I wanted to. And it might, you know, it's the reason why I'm living my best life right now. I don't know if I'm going to have something to say. This coming November either. But it's hard to not imagine. Or I'll take out the double negative. It's hard to imagine that this is not a conversation anymore between duke and North Carolina. It's over. It's over. Unless Hubert Davis lasts 39 more years. At the job and duke and North Carolina face each other in the final. Of an NCAA tournament in what? 2060? Right? And he's the all time winningest head coach? In the history of Carolina, he tells Dean Smith move over? Honestly, duke fans have got to wait like four decades to say, got you back. How is this not done? You're a duke fan. Can you say anything to a North Carolina fan ever again? I mean, you can. You know, I could say something. I understand. But they're just going to laugh at you. And by the way, it's over. It's not as bad right now, but if tomorrow morning, yes, the tar hills are the champions of the world, then that is really. Now that is put the whipped cream and the cherry on top of your Sunday. He was just like, those two wins against duke and Cameron, and your final force is not going to do us a darn thing against Kansas. He's already turned the page. World Series wasn't over when the ball went through Buckner's legs. The gold medal wasn't awarded to the miracle on ice after beating the Russians. But still, this is a ton of house money and how about this, just to bring it all full circle. How about this? Then it went from this is, I mean, it goes from coach K coach K coach K this is his final ride. Everything about coach K farewell. And then just like that, it's now the Roy Williams. Bowl tonight. Yeah. Carolina versus Kansas. Royce can be sitting there in his mask. Who is he rooting for? I don't know if he's going to have that split mask where it's Kansas on one side, North Carolina on the other. He's a tar hill. He played there. He approached Smith. He's rooting for North Korea. It's now the Roy Williams festival. He'll be sitting there tonight. But nobody saw coming. Who saw that coming? It's all about Roy Williams now. As duke gets bounced by North Carolina, the tar heels end, coach K's Cameron, a career, and then end his career period. By beating him in the final four and your guttural reaction TJ speaks to how duke fans can only grunt because the conversation and actual conjugation of verbs and sentences formed in paragraphs made and arguments proffered encountered, there's no back and forth anymore. In the history of this rivalry. Until, like, what, 2060 and Hubert Davis is the winningest coach of all time, and then they face each other in the final game because it can't be in the sweet 16, can't be in the elite 8 because this is the final four. I mean, this is it. Oh my goodness. What have we ever seen in all time rivalry in the history of sport? Just ended. In terms of an argument. So are we going to ignore what are we ignoring? He knows what we say. Are we going to get his whole career? It's done. Ignoring the 5 national championships. Of course not. Because when you say it's over, then it means this is almost like the cowboys thing where we get crap because we haven't won in a while, right? But we still have 5 rings and two teams have it. That doesn't wipe it out. I mean, we're again, Bill Walton is going to join us shortly here and in my life. I'm sure he's going to talk a lot about. I mean, who knows better to have this conversation? It doesn't wipe out better. Has as many dubs, right? There's a pretty big cloud hanging over it. Yeah. I mean, you're right. It doesn't wipe anything out. No, I mean, his accomplishments are remarkable. I think I saw what his final record is like 1212 hundred and something and 300 and something. Yeah, I mean, it's not like 75% of his games. It's not the Back to the Future photo, but like there's a stink. Here's accomplishments are his accomplishments, but in terms of you and I arguing over Yankees Red Sox. Right. In terms of this rivalry. Even with Aaron Boone hitting that home run and Bucky dent hitting that home run, you come back at me and you're like, we were up three O. Yeah. And we won the World Series. Right here. Correct. Yeah. And how many World Series have you won since then? And we can go back and forth. And it's all cyclical. Even Michigan Ohio State. We'll go back and forth. But it's all cyclical. Nobody was retiring. In the final four in the first time you've ever met. Right. In the NCAA tournament. There's no there there anymore. Wow. Crazy. Okay, Bill Walton's first stop, Julia serving his last up and then right in the middle, Greg cosell, 'cause we're just, we're just locked in on the draft, man. Three weeks from Thursday. Las Vegas, Nevada. It's going to go down. Let's go. It's going to go down. Final pro days happen, Oregon's pro day happened. I believe on Friday when we were when we were chopping it up on this program with Bucky Brooks talking about cave on thibodeau and Matt corrals on tomorrow's program. We just got draft on the brain. 8 four four two O four rich is the number to dial when we are coming back. It is none other than our great friend, Bill Walton, chiming in from New Orleans. He's part of Westwood's coverage. Of tonight's national championship game between Kansas and the vanquisher of duke. The duck of death to use the phrase of back in the day from unforgiven, North Carolina. That's next right here on the rich eisen show. Before we go, I want to talk about the rogue ST driver with you. Oh boy, you're going to see a lot of them out there at Augusta national this week. A lot of these rogue ST drivers out there..

"From Los Angeles International Airport where he hung out at WrestleMania 38, which you did see right here on peacock. Unless you're somebody like TJ Jefferson, he personally witnessed everything good to see you TJ. Hey, yo. Good to see everybody here on this program. Yes, and we'll be talking about your exploits over the weekend to say the least. I think you're the only one who didn't shotgun broken skull beers of some sort. You got it. Well, we did it just three weeks ago. When Stone Cold Steve Austin was here on Steve Austin day. Let's just jump right into it here on the program. Go for it. So rare. It's so rare, I mean, we've said this before, but it's worth pointing out again. It is so rare. That you get an all time great matchup in a win or go home game. Between two teams that despise one another and fan bases that go at one another. And yes, we've seen bears, packers in an NFC championship game in recent years. We've seen the Yankees and Red Sox in an American League championship series. You've seen this type of stuff before. But you've never seen it before on a stage in which it could be the final curtain to use the Sinatra phrase for in all time great 40 years in the business, synonymous with one of the branding of the franchise. It's so rare that there's an all time great coach manager involved. And to see this matchup go down for the first time ever in a winner go home game in the NCAA tournament. In the final four, to see duke and Carolina face each other for the first time in the NCAA tournament in the final four and it's Mike suze final ride. It is unprecedented. We talked about it. We couldn't think of another situation like it. I called it on Friday, the greatest rivalry matchup ever. For these circumstances alone. And I understand that this sounds like an exaggeration. The greatest rivalry matchup ever. Stage is set and to see the stage gets set like that. And the game to not only meet the expectation level, but exceed it. That's the good stuff. And that's what duke UNC turned into and the fact that North Carolina. Gets the final lead change of the 19 18th lead change of the night. And that North Carolina is the team to bounce duke and end coach Kay's career is something you couldn't even conjure up. Especially when you now heard as Nance Jim Nance was talking about on Saturday night, his first loss as a duke head coach was against North Carolina and his last loss as duke head coach was against North Carolina and in his entire run coach case magical run. Winningest head coach of all time in NCAA men's basketball. The great rivalry between duke and North Carolina in the coach K era ends with 50 wins, 50 losses. Straight up. Wow. And there was an 18th lead change in the night that turned out to be the final one, unbelievable. What a run. For North Carolina. In Hubert Davis first year as head coach there in North Carolina. What a run. They make the tournament as an 8 seed because of a late season run. That included ending coach Kay's career and Cameron with a loss. In front of the duke crazies, the Cameron crazies. And duke had a chance to wipe that all out on Saturday night. And they're going back and forth. And I'm living a dying with every possession. And North Carolina is not making a single substitution. It was kind of like, my guys are on the floor. Coach, where are you, where are your guys? My guys are on the floor. That kid bay cop with his 90 million rebounds turns his ankle. I couldn't believe that nan said, that was their first substitution of the second half, and it came with 5 minutes to go. And he came back in the game. And then that stone shot by love that three pointer to make it a two possession game late. What a stone shot that was. What an absolute guts and glory shot. To take a three to make it a two possession game late and put duke truly on the outs, barring any son of unforeseen mishap, and I was even one of the moments I was just screaming at my screen. And this would be something we'd be talking about today if duke won. Hubert Davis call on a timeout in the middle of his free throw shooter taken two shots at the end of the game when duke doesn't have any time outs left. I mean, I'm sitting here, I'm like, you're icing your own guy and you're letting coach K set things up for his team. But it all worked out in the end, and there's no second guessing this. This is it, folks. I'm sorry TJ Jefferson. I know you're a duke blue devil fan. And I know so many of them. And I know folks are going to know me are going to say this is bitter stuff..

Final Four Weekend: How Did UCLA Make It In?
"Make you are is. You are ears on the ground for this final four and it is a special one tomorrow night. Because baylor's taking on houston and then undefeated gonzaga is playing this unlikely cinderella. Ucla and i feel the need to start with ucla. Myron because i don't think anyone outside of bill walton saw any of this coming. I don't think anybody's saw them knocking off. A one seed in michigan bell. Takes the basketball dickinson looking choirs. An adviser turns players at three for the good off. The back of the ramp and ucla has water from i. Four to the final four for the nineteen taught school history the first since two thousand eight. The bruins aren't going off final four. Ucla's own players are using words like surreal unreal. When they're asked to describe what this ride to the final four has been like. So how did ucla pull all of this out of the anyone knows and it's funny because a lot of people are saying. Hey you should have believed in the pac twelve. But i demanded all pac twelve fans. Show me they're brackets so we can see if they even believed in the past well. Ucla came out of nowhere and just to beat a team like michigan. That was legitimately a great team. That people thought might be able to some trouble and here. They are just winning game after game. I mean if you want to sum up the chaos of the entire twenty twenty twenty twenty one season. It's ucla in the final four right now after. Not even being the best team in the pack twelve so they make it from the first four to the final four. The second team since vcu to do that. When i saw them beat michigan. Myron in the way that you describe. Johnny giuseppe my half vietnamese king. That dude fifty. Five percent of the points twenty eight like is that just how this team goes now or was that a one
The Tao of Bill Walton
"All right. So chris from your conversation with him and from watching him as a broadcaster over the years. How would you say bill. Walton has evolved from my selfish perspective. He's evolved to be more interesting. I remember watching those. Mba on nbc games with bill walton and marv albert as a kid. Bill was nothing compared to what he is now. Penetration jumpers in transition whereas the defensive resistant for minnesota walton. Was the guy in a suit and tie on nbc for several years. Kevin garnett is thirty six in the nba. Free throw attempts. That's not good enough now. He's the when there isn't a pandemic going on. He's showing up at basketball games in grateful dead shirts and he's embraced everything that he probably had to bury for a very long time. Congo line coming from our free gave receptionist vicky driving that train leading the haredi onto the court. This was so much fun. We've done to do a really good job all the time. But he wants to do his way and his way is to have fun key. Eight a birthday candle. That was let off of a cupcake. He just swallowed the flame home during broadcast. Take a bite out of it. While it's lit ostade about the face for a lot of viewers. They want the nuts and bolts of a pick and roll offense or how you trap bill. Walton doesn't offer much of that bill walton wants to find a correlation between a slam. Dunk and the majesty of the grand canyon. He wants to see a perfect rotation for an open corner. Three and somehow relate that to a grateful dead concert imagination. It's not work. It's taking an idea of building a now synchronicity. What did you learn how to ucla. Or is that prior to your though. I learned that at my i did and i think the most fascinating part of this whole thing to me is that there are subsets of the internet. That either eight bill love. Bill are want to know what he's on and what he's on his life.

Lead the relentless offensive attack because offense wins and Assumed, that risks failure doubt hesitation on certainty and complete failure. That's always an option anything you're ever going to do and then leader. Red Auerbach. He has to be able to say no, and did he ever say no to be home I gosh. When the leader can say, no as read did. And the team and the players still buying anything is possible, and and then when things go wrong. There's no wrong is still leaders fault and he has responsibility and read that and it was fantastic, but with read things didn't go wrong.

Ted Robinson: What Does Tennis Look Like When It Returns?
"I talk with Ted Robinson. He has podcast for Youtube. And I said you know what? Let's just talk between ourselves all. Take the audio you take the audio. We could both use it for our own purposes. So this is a fun discussion. You know. Ted Of course from his longtime working tennis on. Nbc USA Tennis Channel often alongside. John McEnroe great friend of the sport. Great broadcaster journalist the sport little backstory about ten years. Ago Ted Rope me into joining him on a segment. We call passing shots for tennis channel. Then Nathan tennis gentle. This essentially is my intro to Tennis on TV. Luckily he covered for my for my amateur habits. We have revised passing shots. Hopefully it's a little better than it was in in two thousand eight or whatever when we debuted this. But this is ted in T- Ten and I are talking here and it's a number of tennis topics. Ted is in northern California. I am hold up on the East Coast. We Talk About Tennis. We asked the question. Does this break benefit anyone? What is tennis? Look like when we return. Is there such a thing normalcy? What is the role of society in a pandemic where we didn't go that far but A lot of fun tennis talk with Ted Robinson and here. We are all right. Let's so we're GONNA try to keep this mayor John. I had the one of those people from the very beginning when the rolling gap. So the ED T. said we're moving. I was my first reaction. Was that's awesome. Somebody is actually taking a proactive step to give something positive. I understand the means. Were not necessarily the best the end though. I think it was well worth it. Yeah I'm Kinda with you. I mean this is one of the four pillars of the sport. And everybody's saying well. There was a breach of etiquette. What about the communication? Could you imagine what would have happened if the F. T. had gone through these channels and asked all of the events that it conflicted with if they might be okay there would be threats of Litigation? There would be board meetings. There would be conference calls. They just said you know what? We're the big dog. We're putting up fifty million dollars in prizemoney. Two hundred fifty six players are going to get fifty grand. If they don't win a point we think the players are gonNA play. Here's our date deal with it and I get it. I don't think this was particularly healthy to tennis in the long term. I understand why people are upset but also I understand from their perspective. They're one of the four biggest events and they've got a right to wield a little bit of power. Well he means we're great we also though. I think we've all been around the French Roland Garros and Fritz Federation enough to know. They NECESSARILY CARE. They just do what they want to understand that that people's feelings of these are extraordinary times. They they do what they do and they do it more so when they have whatever how many hundreds of million dollars of debt service on on a new roof and they do it when they don't have insurance unlike Wimbledon where they don't get any sort of recompense if they don't hold the event I get it I mean we we can talk about Means versus ends and we can talk about process versus outcome. But I understand why did with did. I reminded I say this to you. I think you've read the story for the years. That and it was the early twenty tens I forget which year but Joe Vision. Doll ended up playing the final into Monday. So on Friday of that final weekend it was about six hundred percent chance of rain on Sunday. And you saw that was probably gonna be joking reaching the dollar. Appoint where you thought they could easily take five hours to play so NBC sort of gently a little bit of my father with our great phrase. John McGuinness producer Think about bumping up the star time because they start at three basically three ten I ball which gives you six hours to play five hours a grueling larger fair and maybe WANNA bump it up and started a couple of hours of REC- hits rain delay. No we cannot interfere with lunch so many of the high end sponsors spend any they promote the final day lunch for your day higher very highly successful shafts planks was menus. We do not wrestlers lunch. I always joke that the media Cafeteria Roland. Garros has its paige day and they have a wine steward and they have different chief selection of in your Houston media dieting. Usually being you know you're you're eating soup with their hands in the you know the meadowlands. If the media dining has their own pyeho chef you can only imagine the dining options for the people that have Spent tens of thousands of dollars for the courtside seats but no lunches sacred which is also the review. No this lunches. That's also why they say I can't believe this it's a grand slam. Semifinal in the stands are only half packed those tickets have been sold and those people are on the ground. They just have a fork in one hand in a night and the other and they'll get to the tennis when they finish their last declare and of course. I joke final. They ended up getting burned by the way the Dow Stock Dazzling. It's not play that day but the referee to stop late Dawson. I'm out and in cost everybody in the cost us a lot of money to pay for everybody's flies to change in extra day but across the federation allowed light right to reopen the grounds the next day to two thousand one. Wimbledon I was told was one of the pats at the club. Now getting certainly they can absorb this. There's a million ounce to real the Nicole on Monday with zero revenue coming in to play raft refereed. Amici's explain what's interesting about all this including this whole discussion we've been having about closed-door events where you just hold the events for for TV and not for fans in the stands this has really been an interesting referendum on how much do these events and these leagues Value TV and media. How much do they value sponsors? How much they value common fans. And how much do they value the sweets? And if appeasing the guys who are buying your sweets me more than TV. I I can see why they would renew it the next thing. I mean what's interesting? I this is other rumor so I WANNA informal setting and I hope this won't be used against the the rumor I've heard a few times now. Is that the US Open. A really are hell bent on playing the event this year. They've even look into alternative dates in one of the big holdups is they've got to do right by. Espn AND IS ESPN want the US Open? Deep in the fall when they have all their college football. They've got Monday night football they don't And I think the. Usda has got to figure out. How much do they want to put on this event in how much they willing to do it even if it means pissing off their biggest TV partners you? John that's by next passing shot and the point is you just touched on. I think every sport is going through this. How do we come back? I think it's imperative for chance to come back with competition as soon as they can't sake safely's the obvious caveat here but safely meaning there may not be for a very limited fans but competition. And I'm coming this John Lewis standpoint of players ranked and we can all week each throw a dart and say seventy five hundred below. I know you've already touched on this on. Tv lied about this but those players and by the way there is sorting teams physios trainers administrators the Chiro bars. The administrators of the tourists broadcast entities around the world. All sorts of lamb chops alive. And I stayed. It's imperative for tennis when safe to have competition even if it means competition with limited X. over to play devil's advocate there. I mean I I I agree with you but the one thing I've heard is is the counter to that is look. You're talking about athletes from all over the world from different countries with different health. Standards you're talking about T as you say teams and Physios and journalists and tournaments to have an even if you have a closed door scenario and even if you don't have doubles juniors you're still talking about hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people walking around the grounds given what we know about these spread rates and given what we know about how many fatalities result from these rates. If they're a thousand people at a major which is a conservative. That's pretty low estimate given their two hundred fifty six players in the May draw a thousand people. You're still probably likely to have a few fatalities Do we do. We risk that it. What do we do for a global sport where Western Europe might be on the man but other parts of the world might be behind? Do we say we're GONNA have the US Open but if you're from India Iran I'm just making up countries but if you're from five countries you can't play. Is that fair to still hold an event L. Rasiah and I think this is what's going on hold is this is my dead and company. Has FOR WITH BILL? Walton took me to see the dead New Year's Eve Senator San Francisco and I think everybody should have to add. Lorries is what I'm saying. I think whenever we come at everybody's GonNa be tested right and you're gonNA have to have a badge. The crucial so. I think that's GonNa be the answer at how this plays out. I'm researcher Techni- Martha but I believe that's how it's going after before you have any competition whether it's domestic or international status everybody's GonNa have to have some badges
Andrew Luck retirement: Here's hoping he finds peace and fulfillment in whatever is next to come
"Colts quarterback Andrew luck retiring played six seasons in the NFL he missed all of the twenty seventeen season made one A. F. C. championship games the forty four time pro bowler with zero Super Bowl appearances and there are some people as expected Joe on social media and elsewhere that are calling into like a botched I think he's a disappointment I think that's fair to say but I don't think you can call a guy who was predominately injured and then played well when he was healthy Abbas injure looks kind of like a bill Walton to me now I guess bill Walton did win a couple of championships including one with the Celtics when he was coming off the bench but he had his career defined by injuries I think that's more lock then putting him in that Ryan leaf Johnny Manziel category which I just don't think it's fair at all no no no no no I. V. kebab that would they they got to an AFC championship game he made pro bowls as you mentioned and if you can't shake the injury bug well that's a completely separate topic if you want to call it a disappointment you want to call it one of the great what ifs in sports not just football but just sports you know sometimes I always wonder what would have looked like if Ken Griffey junior could have stayed healthy throughout his entire career in baseball those I think are fair conversations but this business that he is some sort of a bust com on people let's step away from the Twitter machine for a little bit let's get away for that to think this through a little bit before we start talking that noise you know that that were just pops like it's an evocative word it's you have an emotional reaction when you hear it but I I do think that it's disappointing I I think he's one of the most hyped quarterbacks to ever come into the league and to see him with zero Super Bowl appearances on his resume at least for now I keep reminding myself tonight Joe that Andrew luck story may not be quite done here mom because you know twenty nine years old whenever you retire like rob Gronkowski retires similar age you know not not that much older than and you lock in everyone says the same thing just wait until November in ground pool plug himself back into the New England Patriots in here we go so I would not be shocked to see a lot get healthy and come back but tonight certainly he signed it sounded pretty resigned to the S. and like he had given it some serious thought and I imagine I can only imagine how the colts organization feels you know after preparing for a season where they thought they were going to be Superbowl contenders with one of the top G. M. as in the league in Chris Ballard all of a sudden they have Jacoby per set as their starting quarterback after luck made the announcement colts owner Jim Irsay gave his reaction to Andrew luck's retirement right now we're just thankful about what Anders meant to this city I know a lot of a lot of range of emotions go through our fans and and that's a a natural thing that we can all relate to it was something obviously that we are hoping that might be something that that could have went a different direction but if he had a file is hard and and that's what he did and so again we have nothing but gratitude and thankfulness for for the blood sweat and tears you spill the as number twelve and part of our hearts broken and I

"bill walton" Discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"Then I'd say, hey, I think we're in good shape here. But when you're only I mean, come on, your UCLA doubt. It's a UCLA team that was down nineteen or a few games ago on one and down nine with a minute left against Oregon in the first matchup and won the game. So please please now growl at the UCLA especially with Bill Walton on the call moving along. If he won't be calling this game. You'll get the the number one crew on this one as far as the SPN goes number four. I think it's on ESPN number four Duke at number five North Carolina might be a CBS game. We're going to call the tar heels here in in. In this one a four point home favourite, which is a huge line move from where it was in the first meeting where AGM myself couple of best bet winters on the tar heels. What was that number plus nine nine and a half? I think he might have. Yeah. So numbers even got up there some closing numbers, whereas high as ten so in this won the rematch, of course, without Zion, North Carolina, a four point home favourite, and yes, indeed, they just agreed on the last game. And maybe they continue to compare notes prior to the podcast for this one not one but two vast bets on this game any music drop. No, no meal, by the way, one one with dry land. I'm comfortable with my own skin. You blow it up, bro. All right. You've lost them it up. I don't need that. I don't need that. I don't need that pressure in my life. But just so, you know sleeping. I don't share notes before the show. Okay. I mean, I I in fact, I actually forgot to copy him in my podcast notes to us. So he had no idea. What I was picking. I had no idea what he was picking. But we both like the tar heels here minus four I I don't think that you're gonna see much different from what we saw last game. And it's it's not that you know, I I don't think that you've got a significantly better team with North Carolina. But without Zay on. I think that you've just got a much deeper much more complete team in North Carolina comes into this matchup. They this is their chance to sweep Duke for the first time since two thousand eight nine this game. Could put this came could potentially decide who's going to get a one seed. I I can't imagine that Duke loses this game and still. Finds a way to a one seat. I think that's going to be very difficult don't honor if he's left for them. Yeah. After a fifteen and eight against the spread start Duke two and five in their last seven ATS North Carolina sixteen eight and three as a favorite in eighteen and nine against the spread overall..
"bill walton" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Straight talk wireless. Best phones. Best networks, no contracts Ellen. How you doing man do? Well, fellas looking forward to Kentucky Tennessee tonight. And obviously dukes doing a thing right now. Speaking of Duke and Tennessee right now, in your opinion, who's the best team in the country. And why well your would say that's a leading question of the witness because you left Gonzaga out of that mix. I'm gonna go with them. There isn't it? Zags at their best are right there. And obviously design team to beat Duke outside of Syracuse beat him when they weren't one hundred percent in terms of their health Jones trade Jones and that game cameras didn't play. So I'd say those three teams are right there. Gonzaga, the thing that does hurt them playing the west coast conference. They were tested a bit last night. But normally are not. So they kind of you know, we'll see how after hitting on all cylinders come March on but handling that pressure out. There is not easy to do. Whenever you always the target on your back that said do content at their best or are the three teams in the country. The difference with really is just the experience factor. I mean, Duke these dudes have been really impressive played beyond their years. But we saw it in Louisville the other day when they just thought they were gonna show up and roll the balls out on the road, and they were down twenty three points thirty minutes into the game now mazing comeback, but you still got yourself down. And I think what you don't see in Tennessee is a lot. You don't see clunkers? You kind of know what you're going to get from that team. And they are consistent night in and night out. They are capable of being an elite defensive team they wore last year and all the same dudes this year. They haven't been as good. So I think they're still capable of improving to the rest of the season and being a little bit better. That said their best is just as it may not be as good as dukes best with dukes talent, they have the thing is dukes going to have more variance between number four. Differences and right now, Tennessee does not I want to ask you about Tennessee a little more. And maybe it's because I'm a big twelve guide groping the big twelve I watch reforms teams for a long time. But it feels like that. There's some some skepticism down the Tennessee is maybe it's the lack of name recognition in terms of men's college basketball. But what do they do? So well that would make them an actual national title contender. They're an elite offensive team. I think it it's your point Royces the people that they don't have pros. So we don't talk about as much there on a sexy. Not these five star freshmen these are three or three star guys really that have developed better year over year, and they're juniors and seniors to play at a high level and play together as a group of freshmen make a single basketball year. So in terms of in terms of college hoops, that is an absolute anomaly now what they do do. So well as five dudes on the court averaging double figures for that team to other guys ravaging eight nine so I mean, they got contributions from people all over the place. They've shared the ball. So well, really high assist rate, really efficient grant Williams. Is the guy that they run a lot of their offense through and he's kind of a throwback big in fact that he's not that big. He's Charles Barkley asking six five, maybe, but really strong really athlete can play on the box complain the Albo complain a short corner can facilitate for himself or his teammates out of those spots. And they just all can really play well together offensively. This is an elite offensive team that I said before has the capability to be elite defensive team hasn't shown it, but they're still like top thirty five in the country in defensive efficiency. They're not bad by any stretch the United nation. The last year they were top ten. So I think if they can keep getting better on that side of the ball this. We're seeing a team that would be really really high level but offense. Thing to watch in terms of how they share the ball and how they played. But because they don't have that one standout top ten pick. They kind of get left in the hype machine that we can be sometimes you're listening to Dickerson and hood on any golden alongside ROY young cough is our guest Dallin with March. You know, sneaking up on us. We all need to brush up on what the brackets are going to look like we know the Pac twelve is little weaker this year. What do you expect a tournament to look like when it's all said and done what a what a political way to say that Pac twelve twelve. Twelve arable. Nice. I can't be nice. I've just why every Thursday night. I'm in there with UCLA grad, and we're sitting there, and it is just tough the Bill Walton's doing his thing though. He's he's entertaining us as best. He can't. But the basketball is really dropped off when you're bellwether programs like Arizona. Is down and UCLA has down. It's hard to be that good. So that said that their their ineptitude is having an impact across the country. They're gonna have one bid in the in the in the tournament, maybe to Arizona state may be able to get into that large team. They might have the only resume that can get in Washington dominating that league in assuming Washington wins that league they're going that said it cascades across the rest of the country in terms of filling up sixty eight teams you gotta find thirty six at large teams. And I'll tell you. We're struggling right now in college hoops, because the pack twelve is down your mountain west with some of the mid majors that have had good years before aren't stepping up mount west a one bid league Nevada's coming out of that league. And that's it unless they lose the tournament. Yeah. Then then they get a bit bid. But assuming that doesn't happen there. A one bid league Atlanta. Tens of one bid league the American. I think Joey rackets already has like four teams. And again, I think he's just trying to find teams because I don't think four teams dot com. I deserve to be there. So it's having this crazy ripple effect where we're looking at teams like we talked off air Oklahoma's four and nine I think or maybe. I five nine now in conference play in the big twelve and the big twelve is deep meet every night is hard, but they don't have championship level teams in the big twelve. And they're they're the eighth place team. They make it in probably will get in right now at five and five and nine in the conference. So it's having this weird effect throughout the country. Trying to find the best thirty six and there aren't that? Many great teams I would like to see some of the smaller conferences have the opportunity to get in Belmont. From the Ohio valley is a really good team. They have a couple good non conference wins. If they don't win their tournaments. They lose to Murray state and John Mirant who's right now. Third overall pick in the NBA draft jaws appointment viewing I want to see him in March. But maybe we'll get to see two teams get in as opposed to the eighth or ninth team from the big twelve. Speaking of the big twelve I wanted to ask you about it. I basically spent half my life watching Kansas win this league. And it looked like Kansas state was kind of rising above and that they had they had it in their grasp. I was states the mix. Now after today is Kansas gonna win this thing. Again. I I the reason I say. No is because in the on the road, there form has been way different. Now, they did go on the road and get a win this week that they absolutely had to have two and six and road games. And they turned it over about eight more times again, they shoot a worse percentage, but their lineup finally seems a little solidify. They've had so much rockiness legit Vic who's thinks he's an MBA guard just left the team for personal reasons. So he's done for the season, Marcus GARRETT'S, really good defensively. But he's out hurt. The freshman. Devan Dotson is played at an elite level the last three weeks. Almost one of those things. He's he feels less. Encumbered no mistake is he ever looking at the bench now because he knows I'm not coming out of the game. And he's playing in really really high level last couple of weeks. My question is when they go on the road, and they'll go against Texas Tech next Saturday that's gonna determine it to me if they can't win that game. And I think they're going to have a shot to do this because they believe they're nine and four now and K state is nine and three. I just had a big win over k stage. They beat right there. So that those teams are all in at Texas Tech still in it. But if you can't win on the road, they kick it a done you're gonna have to sneak a couple on the road. I think this league still gets one by teammates thirteen of five or twelve and six even so it gets a twelve and six they could get a share. But I think this year the league the street get snapped. And I'm put my money on Iowa State. I've said that before I might bite my comeback to burn me because I don't defend that well in Kansas state is right there, but dean Wade their best player left the game with nine minutes ago with injury tonight. So if he's not one hundred percent healthy that's another monkey wrench to throw in. This thing is by far the most compelling league in the country without a doubt right now. Dow and cough is our guest. I've got one more for you real easy question. Right. Who's the best player in college basketball? And you really do want to end on a softball. Yeah. Is no doubt about it. I mean, the guy is everything he's done since he's walked in has been better than the expectations were expectations were already sky high. And I I'm I put myself personally. I I watching him in the in the AU circuit and stuff, and I've never seen him live on scene, film and stuff I thought. Okay. This kid just gonna come in, and you can dunk on everybody's talking to work like that. But he's been way more skilled, and I thought he was from day one when they went and routed Kentucky back on November sixth. I mean, he showed his ability to pass his handle build a knock-down jump shots out eight thousand nine hundred feet, obviously, that's lettuce. Is there? The kids got a complete game still needs to be worked on needs to be more consistent jump shooter. No doubt and get better going to his right, but his ability overall, his skill set is way more advanced than I thought it was and the things he can do physically are way above anybody at the collegiate level, hence why he is the number one pick and the best player. Most electric inefficient player. Sixty eight percent in the field. Which is insane. In fact, that he's not a center that only shoots on the elbow on the block. So he's been outstanding. And he will continue to be just that. The rest of the year. A Alan great stuff, man. We appreciate you spending some time with us this evening anytime fills up going very is. He is Dell coffee covers college basketball for ESPN. What you heard it right there from the man himself Zion. Williamson is pretty good pretty good. Where will not bad at all? Where will he ended up in the NBA? What's the best fit for the Duke star? That is coming up next on ESPN radio and the ESPN app the new.
"bill walton" Discussed on GSMC Basketball Podcast
"GMC podcast network. I'm your host is always Jeff Bauman with me is Bill Walton's security. I mean, Mark Souza Bill Walton? I meant Luke Walton excuse me. I messed up the joke. I'm ashamed of myself. That is the shame. If I'm Luke Walton because he was attacked own team. And we'll talk about that and a little bit as well. As harden and Coby sound off on James harden, and his how he's playing with that went in championship as well. The Davis is still being the talk about him before the deadline, which is on Thursday. And as well, we're having a little fun may have fun. But we'll talk about what happened in college basketball in the women's in the women's league coming in a little bit. We'll tell you what happened in a certain game between the lady vols and the Vanderbilt team. I don't know what their team name is Vanderbilt Commodores right to the lady Commodores, assuming as their name. Yeah. Maybe anyways. All right moving on Weaver's, Luke Walton because he was well Beasley wasn't very happy with his minutes. And there were some other teams or two players including Vail McGee. And I forget what others there is more than them to. Beykal Beasley DeVille McGee were the two players reportedly. There was another one now. I mean, we don't know. But well, they were they had to be physically restrained from Luke Walton, and it sounded like it was going to go to a certain Latrell Sprewell type of thing. Yep. Didn't come to that. But yes, the it was reportedly very hostile in the locker room after the game, which is odd because the Lakers, you know, on that AM. No, they lost. No. They'll always against the clippers. No, they it was the warriors warriors. I didn't have LeBron. So, but they played tough. They lost it down the stretch. But regardless you're not expected to beat the warriors, especially without LeBron. Jane, I think that managers been the straw that broke the camel's back. That's just my guess at least of what that the cause of it. Yeah. Probably frustrations due to be Beasley not playing that much this year. I mean, I think McGee lost a couple of minutes when they got Chandler able for sure I think that's what hardly ever played. I mean, he's never plays and he plays. I'm just trying to think of why McGee got frustrated. Probably about the same thing. It was reported that it had mostly to do with rotations with minutes. Obviously. So yeah, that's where we are in February for the Lakers. You know? That's what happens when you're star player. Lebron James misses seventeen basketball games. I mean, you lose a little bit. You start getting a little frustrated. He did come back for the clippers game. We know. He sat for the warriors game. You know, of course, because you don't wanna play him back to back, especially when you put forty minutes clippers made total sense to rest him. But sounds like he will be back in the lineup tonight as they travel to Indiana to face the Pacers. Yeah. And he's getting you back. Do you think he intentionally missed the the boyers game? Because he he was back and then missed him. Now. He's back sounds kind of suspicious. I mean, you don't he played forty minutes against clippers true. But I would be suspicious. I dunno voiding them. It feels like that just to me personally. I mean, look he came back for the clippers. You probably don't wanna put back to back in your already going to chalk one up his law. So it makes sense to rest him versus a team that you don't think you're gonna be anyways. So the games against Cooper's Pacers, more importantly gaming. It's the warriors. Okay. More winnable. So. Yeah. And push these coming back from a groin injury..
Super Bowl 2019: Pregame coverage before Patriots vs. Rams
"The game, of course, is a big part of it. But also there are other sort of story lines beyond the the Rams and the patriots in a couple of them. There are interesting to me is I want to start Myron with with with gronk. He's kind of had a resurgence a little bit here in the playoffs starting to see a little bit of the gronk of bold wrestlemainia is the first Sunday in April. I'm of the belief that I'm going to see grog make his debut in the WWE it wrestlemainia and then his time in football. Is over. After today. Do you agree with that? And do you think that whatever happened today win or lose could have any effect either way? Well, I think that makes a lot of sense excuse me, especially because you're talking about a guy who can probably get millions of dollars on a pretty limited. Wrestling scheduled Cadillac around. Arousing Brock Leser, like it's not like the old days where he's going to have to wrestle three hundred days out of the year. This guy's going to get paid to show up on special events and make millions. He's talked so much about how much money he saved throughout his career. He's talked about not wanting to play too long. I don't know if today affects anything because he's a first ballot hall of Famer whether he wins or loses today, he's got a bunch of money in the Bank. And I think he could be the next rock in. In. I think he could be that. He's got a personality. You're not a wrestling guy. He's not the rock rock. Am wrestling. He could be that. Well, rock started out as what rocky my via. He was fighting from the family name. And then he emerged as his own way. I can't broadcast that personality in the WWE. We'll promote him. I think he could become a superstar who eventually goes in the movies and forgets football. All right. I I'm not going to argue with the wrestling part of it. But because you're wrong. But Dan, do you think this is it for I? Yeah, I do. But I do believe that tonight's result swings that okay? I can see if they lose tonight especially in close ballgame Brady convincing gronk for another year. Come back for another year. Don't forget is AO win the first round tackled. It's not part of this team. He'll be back. Like, we give me one more run. Gronk I can see that happening. Now, if they win I do believe that he calls it a career as he rightfully shit. Don't take don't. Remember, the comments he made this last week of him talking about the wear and tear, and how much it weighs on you. Mentally, and how hard it is to get hurt and have to practice, and how difficult it that difficult of a thing that is now to say that he's the next rock is absolutely outrageous. Like the row how first of all the rock is the rock was a guy that went into wrestling because that was the the the means to an end that was the vehicle. News and his family had been. He was going to you second of all the rock is incredibly business savvy and Hollywood savvy works like a dog like this is a guy. When it comes to football. Yes. When it comes to training for football. Yes. But he doesn't. I mean, the rock literally works like a dog. I need more talking about the rotten. Now. I saw the rock when he was in survivor series as rocky my via no one knew he wasn't good. And he was trying to figure out who he would be gronk could come in in the social media air, which rocketed the rock didn't come in in the social media era. All I'm saying is gronk could be a superstar in wrestling. Well, let me add gronk is only he's only twenty nine it feels like he's been around forever damnit. He's only twenty nine now he's taking a lot of hits bodies like a forty year old guy. But I guess what I'm saying is listen to countdown to kickoff on ESPN radio you've been through this process and Myron, and I haven't the process to decide you know, what that's it. Right. That's a hard process for every athlete. No matter the level, whether you're elite or not is it in part of it. I think is do I have something to go. Do do you think? I mean, we we talk about wrestling and a lot of people may roll their eyes. But it is something I know he can do if he wants whether it can be great or not he can do it is that talked to me about the process of saying I'm walking away. And and how how how players go through that mindset. Yeah. I mean for for me, you know, it was a great majority of it was I don't love the crap anymore. Doesn't it feel like he doesn't either? Yeah. I mean, that's that's no you're not gonna pay. Now granted if someone was going to pay me five million dollars. I would have dealt with it again, if someone's gonna pay gronk ten or twelve million dollars, maybe, but you get you deal with the crap. Like, so many people doing their job you do with that crap. Because you still love it. You love all the things that competition the locker room, the fellas the drive to be great the work, you love all that. And then once you don't love the dealing with the crap anymore that stuff doesn't matter anymore. It's not worth it anymore. And that's when you start facing the question of do I wanna do this anymore? And it makes it completely now. When I went through my transition, I wasn't for sure. Like, I was like all right. I want to get into analysts in broadcasting get into TV TV. And I was like I'm just gonna go rather than sitter sitting around. And wait. So I knew that there was at least the opportunity there for me. Gronk scan have way more. More than I had presented to him. But if you get to that point where you're done loving, the crap that you have to deal with and there are avenues for you to go. It makes it such an easier decision in move for you to go. You know what I'm done? Here's the next Chad having those options, I do think is is huge. You will have a lot of options. And you didn't know when you quit you're going to get to do a show with Matt Jones in my. But then sometimes I have earlier if I did exactly the Lord's blessing. There you are. So let's talk about the next to the players on the field. Maybe the person that has the most sort of its state today. Myron is your guy Tony Romo? I mean. I'm not sure an announcer has gotten this level of praise maybe ever like universal praise of people going Stephen Smith said is the best performance he'd ever seen from an announcer. And so the thing is that's awesome. Except you've got one more game. And I always of the opinion the most important two days in your life or the first in the last at a job. Well, the last impression he's gonna get from us is this game. Is there pressure on him to recreate the magic from two weeks ago? I think there's a ton of pressure on him to do that. And I think the problem is announcers like him who get this early praise. How many of them go down as being folks? And a lot of people don't like, you know, it's unfortunate because you start out liking guys like Tony Romo. He deserves all of this praise, but because you expect now people expect him to be some profit every game the minute. He shows any sort of flora weakness people are gonna jump onto that and start to criticize him. But I think he's facing more pressure than any announcer at a Super Bowl or any analysts had a Super Bowl that I can remember because people think he's like something we haven't seen before. And now he's going to have to deal with that pressure. Incomes care like most of the time. I'll be honest with you, Dan. I don't even know who the announcers are until I realized what network game is on. But with Romo I mean, there are prop bets on how many he's gonna call. Like, this is he is not the biggest story the game is. But you know, he's the second third or fourth. Biggest story. I think a big part of it too is like people are having a ton of fun listening to him. Torino because not only is he very good at what he does in. I've said this as a broadcaster networks you better have quarterbacks on there. Because you you've gotta be able to get people to understand the game different levels that communicated to all kinds of people. But it's the fact of he continuously telling educating people on the wise in house put it's fun. Like, you're having fun. Like John Madden was the last announcer. Who seemed like he was having as much fun as Romo, and it's it's okay. For him to talk over Jim Nance for a second. Because if you were sitting at a bar with your friends are in the living room having a beer with your friends. You talk over your buddy here in this moment. So it's not like this. You know in cookie cutter ish. Oh, we don't do that. Because it's television. But what happens if I'm saying is really good. Then I'm gonna do it. You know? And I think that there is that appreciation for for from people going like this is really good. And he's telling me stuff, that's really. Good. But also like the fact that there's really nobody else on TV sounding like him in ways. Like that like talking over Jim Nance, Jayme lake. It just seems like he's having a blast doing it. There are very few announcers who make the crossover into a personality that they matter Madden did mired. I'd say Barkley has vital. Did like there are many. And I think romo's headed groups, Dan Orlovsky will continue to be on. Would you agree with that? Yes. I think he is definitely in that group of guys where you go. You're now going to watch games because romo's attached to it doesn't matter the game because he's gonna make any game more interesting. Just because of who he is become he's become a part of the game now, and that's a good thing. Because like damn fed people. Like, I think I honestly think there are very few announcers that them just being there matters. I think John Madden. Did I think dick Vitale did Bill Walton? I think dick Vitale did. And I think I think Tony Romo is is sort of becoming like that who's going to win the game. After all this talk who actually is going to
"bill walton" Discussed on Pardon My Take
"It's the same is when you think about the same number. But when you plan ones until hang on broke, my brain. I it's it's the same number when you thinking about one's into is like you just getting closer to, you know, a smaller number so that smaller number actually causes more panic, right? So if you were planning to you know, if we're planning to seven, right? It's like you're looking at it. And it's like, I got a, you know, I got seven points to seven possessions when his fourteen you kind of look at it as a bigger number and the game wouldn't have the same type of intensity. Right. Yeah. And so the the more you lower, you know, the number right? Even if it was fourteen if you say seven than the a two point. Oh, right gives you closer to that to that seven. And you're looking at that number, you know, in sports, you're looking at that seven as the go right in. So you when his when his fourteen you feel like you have a little bit more room for air and everybody else. So they still feels like it would be a longer game. Okay. I like that answer. It's it broke my brain for a second because it was like Bill Walton's answer to like just being it's all one number. It's all one song. Just one number. The same. It's the same game as you know, all one ocean. Right. You can you can score. You can score fives, and tens with that shit. Johnny's gone five to ten you know, if if if the number if you still got to get to a hundred. A hundred you got a, you know, pretty much fuck around and shoot ten pointers. You know, what I mean because you could care less. So the bigger that number is it the more margin of air more margin for error. You have. All right. My last question everyone check out w Tf Baron Davis on fuse TV January twentieth. That's premiers..
"bill walton" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Think can succeed here? What type of characteristics at UCLA look for in the next. Barack obama. I don't think he's gonna coach. So we keep saying that. But why why are you so negative? Why you turned down? Give me some big brother in law Robinson. Barack Obama until he said, no, I love it, by the way. Listen, this is the day and age of the guy or the girl who wasn't doing that before. And now all of a sudden gets the gig. John Lewis is the general manager the forty Niners. A typical resume a typical path to that job. Rob Pelinka's, the general manager of the Lakers. He was an agent. Here's Kobe's agent. So relationships are everything I don't know what baracks relationship to UCLA has. But the man does love to hope. The man does love to put up a left-handed three point shot. And the man. Has got some leadership skills. No matter what side of the aisle, you're on. I think president of the United States is a pretty good thing to put on your resume. If you're like. Yeah. Like, I have some leadership qualities or rather? What have you done president of the United States? Okay. All right. We're listening. Plus Bill Walton is officially one of the few people in sports think Charles Barkley who you could just listen to talk about anything. I could listen I would love Bill Walton to show on a cooking show. And tell me the ingredients that he puts in like just a basic pan of brownies. Although I know what they'll all right. What's in his brownies? But anyway, you get what I'm saying. I could listen to Bill Walton read me a children's book. I think I can I think I I think I can how great would that be? And no matter what the opinion is that he throws out there. You're just like. Yeah. Bill. It's Charles Barkley, right? You can't win. There'll be a tip of certain threes. All right. Nice. Jack. Good for you. But you can listen to talk about anything about loans officially one of those guys. And I think UCLA should absolutely call President Obama. I don't like their chances. You don't lose your head. Coach UCLA is gonna be or I would have it be lot allowed. The former players are advocating this. It should be. Earl Watson, Earl license. Probably going to get that gig. ITJ who's been out on the games this weekend? And what would hard knocks mean for the raiders or the forty Niners for that matter if it were to happen. A Mark Willard you that's next on these sports later, Iraq.
