"Not you can't just add hawk. Assume the winds were going to happen anyway. You know you can't threat right so look what we can talk about it right now that you think it's not if you don't think it's real but in twenty years you're gonna look back and say in twenty twenty one. They were the champion. And that's the bottom line. So so what but look. I wanna come to go to bat for phoenix. If anybody thinks they're a fraud out there they had the second best record in the nba. They had the best record for five hundred teams better. They had the best road record in the nba. They had the best record in one possession games and they closed out three series in this house on the road. So tell me. That's fraudulent. And i don't know what fraudulent means john. Barry here on the rich eisen show what he thinks. Going through damian lillard zeman right. Now think you know. I don't know it. Who's putting it out there that he's getting traded. I don't think it's the blazers they'd be absolutely foolish. And this guy. He's one of the best players in the nba. Didn't play in portland. He would be one of the bigger names in the nba. No question and for them to think about getting rid of him. I think they'd be crazy. I don't he's been as loyal as the guy is there is in the nba. He stuck around portland and they would be absolutely foolish to let him go. I think we're we're a lot of people are basing it off of his Like we do a lot these days because this is the manner in which players communicate is through a twitter account or an instagram account. Was you know his his tweet. After getting bounced in the playoffs where he's like. How long should i stay dedicated. How long till opportunity meets preparation. He's quoting nipsy hustle and you know and and and a lot of people are thinking you know. Maybe the only analogy. I could kind of equate it to in a way is another superstar in the pacific northwest and russell wilson. Although russell has one where he's been championship but were he's he's associated with this place in fans adore him and can't think of doing it without him but he's got sit there and thank you know there's things have to happen for me to actually use this window of opportunity for me to win. You know i and maybe lillard seeing. What's going on with chris. Paul or devon booker right other people who are in right situations that happen for them all of a sudden going from nineteen wins to maybe winning it all and he's got to be there thinking how the hell. Why can't that happen for me. That's maybe that's what i'm saying. I think that could be a jab to the organization like let. Let's let's do. Let's do something different you know. Let's change our path and we got we have. We're not good enough. Is basically what he's saying and we we've got to do something different than what we've done in the past to make us a championship contender and look. Cj mccollum is an unbelievable player. But i'm trading him. It's a small backward. They haven't won. You can get a lot for c. J. mccollum and this is absolutely no slight on him but i would move him to get some other pieces and try a new way of going about it trying to win. And so you know. I'll play Fantasy basketball gm it. Do you think. There's any there there with ben simmons right there. I mean 'cause i think for sure he can't he he's he's kind of Kind of i. I can't see how he stays in philadelphia after one of the playoffs. Yeah he might need a change of scenery He's a real enigma. Obviously i've done games where he's been the best player on the floor in dominated games about that and i don't know i mean you know portland's a great offensive team so could you afford to take him on where you know you're not gonna get much offense guys in unbelievable defender He can do some great things. And that's where portland needs to get better defensively. So maybe that makes sense. I'm not sure we're ben. Simmons fits is anybody. I just don't know i mean he's got a fit somewhere right. I mean he's an all star right. It's been really good. It is really good But i think he needs to change. He's got to become some sort of offensive threat. I mean that's just the bottom line. I mean this off season is going to be something else man All right well. This have a great have a great game to john. I love chatting with you. It's good to run into you the other day. Let's let's tee it up. Let's do it. I you and i e how about you and i- versus Bryson and and aaron rodgers. Do you think about that match five. Now let you. I'll let you use my driver. Now that's in reference to you. And i playing what jesus had to be ninety three or no. No no no i got. Espn and ninety six. It was later than that. It was probably. It'd be late nineties. John or early 'oughts at a and android that it was in fact a brad faxon billy android Charity tournament there and beautiful rhode island and I was hitting your driver and it was great. And you said you'd send me one. And i'm still literally looking in the mail. Twenty-one it's amazing. I'm gonna call my daily made rip horse notes. Okay we're we're calloway's show. It's all right..

"They went four to one then they beat the candidate two-to-one after shoot up, and then they beat Russia. One nothing to goals against those tweets all hockey NHL player. Yeah. I don't even know half the guys Czech Republic were NHL players Yager. But other than that weren't that many and him, obviously. But no he was. The to me the greatest goalie and to me is way up. There would want the best player in the nature of history. I know he's not going to get the recognition because he was a goalie goalies. But he's right up with me. Yeah. My mind still goes with Mario your three forwards on your all time team, there'd be Mario Gretzky. And how. I mean, I really I saw the tail end of Gordie house career, but everybody I've talked to he was the guy. I like that who you're defenseman. Definitely Bobby ORR. Or you're gonna be surprised at this. I think the best pure defenseman I ever saw, and you can go with a peer who doesn't have to be have yours would also get you like, okay points a year and also could kick the bleep out of everybody. Larry Robinson in the Montreal Canadians was just like a monster. At that time. I mean, he was six four six five which looked like Charles David is clearly the biggest guy on the ice the toughest guy and also had elite offensive skills. I I would go with or the French way to you. Canadians canadian. Yes, is that way is the French spelling, right? Yep. Exactly. And then goal I you make a case for for Hossack. You can also make a case for Ken Dryden. I'm the only one six cops in eight years. But again, he played with the team for the team that Canadians team in the seventies had half their team or hall of famers future. Hall of famers. In fact, they've ruined my childhood because they want like the Cup every year and the Bruins were really good. And the Canadians always beat them. You couldn't beat the Canadians. I still maintain the seventy five through seventy nine Canadians. The greatest team I've ever seen in any sport for four year period. They never went to a seventh game, and they went four straight Stanley Cups. Very cool. Uniforms, maybe the second best uniforms in hockey, buying the Blackhawks the Bruins you like the Bruins better ruins, I've always liked their logo the most in professional sport. Right. That's a cool logo. Absolutely. I wanted to end the show today 'cause you did a great avenue here in the last three days. Thanks. I really. Oh, we're going to have you in from time to time. I know next week. Come in for even the second our show one of the days out and check some places out here because we like to eat last night. We went out to Jimmy stare house up in Saugus, which is one of my favorite restaurants because great prime rib great deal that you get a prime rib. I got the rice with the spinach, which is to die for and then a salad, and it's reasonably priced in the food's great. I we we ordered up to bigger prime rib than I broke a glass, and they didn't catch me. Absolutely. Yeah. Pretty cool. Right. And I like seventeen diet cokes and all that stuff and it worked out well, prime rib. Yeah. Twenty two ounce prime rib pretty good. So we enjoy that. But I kind of wanted an things this week. You love golf in fact last night, you're watching golf on the on the screen at Gary woodland can't former Kansas university of Kansas player who's a huge Kansas basketball fan. Yup. Good friend of bill's. So you like so you get out to golf a lot. I mean, obviously, not now moving here in January. Yeah. In the summer. I do. Yeah. Yeah. A couple times a week few times a week in. Played a used to be just playing these scrambles them play a few times a year. And I was just got off. My father was a good golfer. My grandfather was a good golfer. They chat a hole in one. And they both my father shot a seventy five when he had his home in one. My grandfather shot I think seventy six when he had his own one. I was having a particularly bad day in nineteen ninety seven and I ducked cooked another tee shot on a par three. And it looked like it was going into the woods, except it hit the Bank and took a right turn and was raised in about one hundred fifty miles an hour on the upper tier, and it's slam the stick really hard and dropped in turn the three women. I was playing with showed that counts. Right. It was added shot. That's great. Yeah. And the whole before that I said one of the ladies said, gee, I hope we can get the rounding looks like starting to get dark already. So we will we need to play next. Holy. So you can see me get a home. Have you had one? I said, no, my father, my grandfather. And then I had one now again, my grandfather shot seventy six my father seventy-five when they had their whole shoot. I'm gonna let you have one guess ninety eight one hundred eleven wow. And it was on August eleventh. There were six you didn't ones you're lucky. You got the whole in one that would have been a sex or whatever trae my normal five. It would it would have been a one fifteen at one fifteen one four nine. But then that got me hooked on golf. Once you do that. I played for one summer. I was got off. We would play only nine holes because I lose interest after nine holes in one time I shot a fifty which would translate to one hundred nights said that's as good as I'm going to get. I had a temper on the golf course as also drinking back, then I was like this. I'm not good at this. I love I rather play tennis. It's more of a war. Ten much much more fun for me. I like the sport better. But as a sports writer, you know, you run into a lot of different people a lot of great stories, and, you know, just talk. About some of the different celebrities, athletes coaches, whatever it may be that you've played golf with Bill self is someone that you're right Harvard for several years out of Kansas. I played with him once and then six holes in a scramble, but the one time I played with him. He hits the ball longer than three hundred yards is good athlete. He was a starting point. Karen? Guy. Right. Davies about six three big though, big guy, not heavy, but a big guy really crushes the ball cross-handed putter, which I don't like. But there are some guys on tour, but a good putter and an intense competitor. He ever walked away from coaching. It would be to go on the golf course loves it that much I think he would love it that much. Yeah. But he he's too into his job to play that much when he plays the only place the best courses in the world pretty much because Kansas alums will say, hey, do you wanna come up and play Bandon dunes in Oregon? You want to come here and play this to pine hills. And you know, in, you know, whatever, of course, he plays just about other than his home course, are all-time great courses in just a great guy to play golf with. That's most important thing. Yeah. Some friends that I after playing with them like six or seven times like I don't wanna go out these guys again. And then there were other guys that were they knew I wasn't very good. They were better than I was. And they would still encourage me other guys would be like, oh my God this. I'm like, okay. I got that good so deal with it. That's why I stopped going out there. Because if we played tennis. I'd whipped their butts off, you know, but tennis is frustrating because you're playing against someone who's golf you playing against the course, which is a different type of frustration absolutely fell in the great thing about golf as you're walking off the green and the eighteenth hole. No matter whether you had a great day or an awful day, you're convinced and you really believe it that the next time you play you're going to play better. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. So that's what makes that cool. I played. With cabal and a scramble Cabello Astra. Wow. Yeah. And he was came up in the Orioles organization. So I had seen him play in Rochester. So that was cool. The play golfer. I don't remember them being great. But a great guy just a super guy his brother-in-law's Eddie Murray. I don't think Eddie golfs, but I got to know Eddie. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely a great great baseball player mental age is what did it for him? There were more impressive physical talents. But mentally nobody was better than it's kind of a serious guy. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Hurted guy, very introverted. And I think I liked him. Some of the media didn't understand. Yeah. Kind of thought he was standoffish. But there's a difference between just being introverted right standoff. I happen to like him. Yeah. And then I played with Kurt bevaqua want. And he wouldn't remember. But years later when everybody does one thing well in life, right? I eat that's my thing. Or when I grant I drank well mine is. Or not. So well. And the people around me, I think so much so I can put five or six pieces of bubblegum in and blow gigantic bubbles that can cover up my entire huge. Can you guys this? 'cause this is pretty cool. Well, I what I did do was I took a selfie of it and posted it on Kirpa vodkas page because he was the bubble gum blowing champion baseball. In job wears yellow would always make big deal out of it on TV, and bevaqua is very impressed and said we should have a challenge or challenges to see who can blow a bigger bubble. So that was the ultimate cap lament there. I thought that ever happened. It hasn't happened yet. And despite what timing Lasorda said about him. He couldn't hit Florida if he fell out of a boat. He was much better hitter in the major leagues that I was in the in in the little leagues. Okay. But the only time I played with three times I have played with PGA tour. Golfers one was Chris DiMarco, and it was in the Buick Classic. When I was doing radio in the early two thousands hadn't played in a while. I probably shot one forty five or something on a impossible. Course was that those intimidating because I was bad. You know, you're also playing with right? Great golfer, one of the twenty five best golf world. But the thing is let's say I had my best round ever which was in eighty. It's not like that's going to impress him. One forty five. It is. I mean, it was embarrassing is what was missing. So this is like Jim Carrey and the cable guy. Yes. He was approachable. But. He talked a lot about as material possessions about abode of this any told there was a Buick rep plane with us, and he told him I once won a Buick such and such whatever the brand was or the model for making a hole in one in this tournament. But look excellent years old. What does the young guy like me want that car? So rude. Yeah. Totally. And he took the he told me take the money then I play with Billy Android who. I believe is from New England, right? Yes. Rhode Island neighbor. Yup. I think. Yeah. Rhode island. Maybe the nicest, and he wouldn't remember play with me. I hope not anyway because I was in the thirty s. Getting better. But try play one of their coach was Joe at shoot a two hundred. Yeah, I'd probably start talking clubs into the water. They think seventy Balesteros at that point. And he was just as nice guy is you could possibly imagine. So I'll always be grateful to Billy Android for not laughing. Yeah. That was horrible. Well, you know, the thing is it. But let's say that they came on radio when we do radio. They're not good at it. At some point. You kind of looking maybe look at each other and say, well, this guy's not very good on radio. But you're not going to belittle them in front of them. Right. Unless you want to go in that direction, and you want to be Howard Stern and go there doesn't generally happen. In sports, you know, generally kind of put up with someone and try to prod them along the right say some things who's the third person..
