In Black America: Spencer Haywood

"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A. It's just a lot of love was having an and I see in Detroit and it's always been that way you know. They've always reached out and help each

"It. We need to learn how to not in your school learn how to debate and put down but learn how to tolerate and have compassionate and say just like to a flatter third so if i could talk to somebody who's you've been saying that this whole time if somebody's an atheist or they believe this that's okay that's such a different that that to me feels like evolution. That's evolving spiritual and i feel like if you say you don't you don't believe in god or anything like that. Having the conversation about debate go oh sir aliens shouldn't feel like the same thing due to them right so if i say yes and you say no. Are you going to get pissed. Talk about it. But why do you get pissed off. When you say yes about yeah and i get it because people are being mobile people are being radicalized changed or your however. You want to call it well when we look at certain parts of the country where people are killed because they're gay or women are but we're talking about western modern the religious discussion totally. I don't know and that's what i'm trying to get. That's maybe the point of this podcast is like usually i say do you believe in god people say no and then we start talking about the phenomenon of consciousness of life existing and that's just another way of talking about the same and i'm like you said i'm just being about discussions. You know what i mean. You should be able to have that conversation and not walk away like really being pissed off or like completely agree my weird. I'm i'm judging my own faith. The way that i had my faith was weird and it didn't quite line up with my heart or my intuition and the way that i kept it alive for a really long time was not engaging conversations so i had penn gillette on the podcast. I never would have wanted to talk a pendulum. We used to say in church if you're standing on a table and somebody's on the ground. It's dangerous to try and pull them up to your table. They'll it's it's easier for them to put you down but that was just a way of being like don't engage with other people because your ideology is fragile. I say let it all in when you're ready. Let it in and a little bursts in and you can handle it and everything will be fine. It will aw you'll be okay it. Will your mom might think you're weird and your data. Thank you ignore him. It is okay but you guys will reconcile my dad thought about texting a picture of me and you and and it would be over yeah. Oh yeah let's i would be honored to the part of part of the healing. Oh my god that is using your gift uh-huh for peace about peace mental attitude well we talked about god and then it gets heavy so we always end and you feel good first of all check if you'll get about the second of all <hes> what is the hardest time you've laughed in your life hardest laugh you've ever had at one point. I never say it right but everyone knows what i mean. Yeah i know right away. Gosh i forgot this <hes> boy. I'll let me take some pressure off. Although you do perform well under pressure. I've been been told i have to imagine a basketball game is pretty tense and you do pretty well. I've been told couldn't be bothered to watch even a highlight..

"It turned me off so much from ever talking about this they like i. That's a trap question. You know what you mean yeah for sure and it worked. It worked because they got picked up everywhere. It's cornering something that should be eh mystically delicious like lucky charms. It should be engaging and interesting and personal and hard to talk about but then we turn it it into do you think this and then why do we want you to think that or not so we can judge it which is just more thoughts which is playing the jerk off game like do you think i think the only thing that and then we can all play our thoughts and we exist more from an ego plays. I exist more because i think you're so wrong when spirit in my opinion and is so past that exit that we don't even we don't even drive on that road like we stay in the debating teasing judging ridiculing ruling. I just did something where i felt like. The intent was to make fun of flatter thor's and i was like can we just like i'd like to talk to a flatter at there and just be like i understand your suspicion to not take anything at face value because we're soaking in a misery and i understand that comes out in the sort of weird way but i'd rather join us in your what the fuck is is just general unsettling nece that we woke up in a fucking mystery mystery rather than getting off jerking off and going like you're stupid. You're stupid so that i can exist so my false self can exist more loudly oudlay in more proudly when that shit is fucking dead to it's all dead what lasts what's real beyond all these opinions and these can click click bait blake.

I'm mad about my dad's tax or just a simple practice. What were you mad about or anxious about a year ago. You can't even remember a week ago. It's just your brain really worked out fine and it's probably fine and your brain is just like addicted. It's like a mental illness like your brain takes over your being. You're not your thoughts. You're not your brain. You're not what people say about you. You're not even what happens to you. You're the thing watching that happened. In the more i can sit in that place and it seems like you're doing this. Whether or not you put this language to it. You're just not as affected and vats sexy that what people follow the half will write down and remember two thousand years later people like jesus. Would it'd be a good guy. I'm like no he wasn't. He wasn't about just be a good guy. Everybody as long as there's been people there's been at least a couple of being like just a very basic aw saying you're not who you think you are that electric.

"Is it okay to call somebody gay no but like we're just sort of making fun of fucking everything and then you enter into the space where nothing is taken seriously or precious and then this this might just be me the more we tear down what i would call the false self so in a row supposed to respect you because you're famous basketball player and then. I don't don't isn't that fun telling but also you laughing at it. I'm being real. I think churches if they were funny would get a lot out out of roasting themselves roasting the pastor rosen the choir leader roasting because you need to richard rohr who i love and if you're down with jesus or jesus interested. He's your dude. He's incredible and he says the true self what i'm saying like your soul like the the quiet place. That's observing blake not that the thoughts story of blake but the thing that's looking at your is unaffordable. I'm like this motherfucker so when someone offends me that's where i see. That's where my work is. I need to let go of that. I'm taking myself too seriously. I'm being too precious. I'm being too in the world or or i'm being two of the world so i can be really actually spiritually helpful hundred percent because if you can make like dude i know some hard core mother mother fucking bad ass buddhists. You can't annoy them. Let alone offend them and they're just giggling. Buddhists seems like you know but buddhism is sort sort of the opposite of religion. It wasn't mean there's no deity yeah. You know what i mean. It's just being in this place right but it's a lot like waking breaking up to the idea that nothing is happening at sorta. Here's buddhism. Nothing's happening and that's freedom is when you just like. Why am i so like i feel like my dad right. Now is ignoring me because i think i heard his feelings because i didn't reply to attacks that hurt my feelings so i ignored it and i think he's mad at me and i get really caught up in in that and just go like i get buddhist about and nothing has happened and just try and find compassion for i'm not i'm not like buddhist or anything like that but i think as i've gotten older. I've gotten to a place where i things. Don't bother me quite as much and like. I love that because yes as i get to to that place. I feel better just every day. That's right like i i would always said this to reporter last year. He was doing kind of like an indepth thing came to my house listen. He was like you know. You seem like not happier but you seem more like just like aquatic. Yes i used to like you know i. I'd likes you. Try not to read things that people write about you but it's sometimes it's impossible so stupid twitter and instagram. I just on instagram explorer agency like a quote about me.

"My issue now with christianity is i don't understand how how a religion that is following somebody who stood for these things in the bible you know they've talked about oh jesus would would he would eat with like the lep- the sinners of the cross last year isn't in yet in the bible. I'm not saying thing. This is my belief that in the bible or at least christians believe that say for instance homosexuality is a sin did but then you can't accept you. Don't get it why outright. Why can this person who you're supposed to be following. Do these things but you can't don't get me. You know what i mean. I i mean this is my favorite talk about. I'm just so put off by all that that like. I dunno i it's a bummer to say like but it just having grown up around all that and being immersed in it so much because you're not only sunday but monday through friday for me and again on wednesday going to chapel. I just don't understand how that makes any sense and that's only just one example. There's a lot of things can i go. I'll just put this to you. Maybe my greatest joy in life is realizing to me that would jesus saying and would all of the great teachers ears are saying all of spirituality boils down to you are not all of these transitory things that are passing all these false identities including your sexuality including your profession profession including your income including where you're from your family and it's like who you are is that in dwelling what we would call the holy spirit and the christian tradition shen the ottoman or the buddha nature that inward divinity. That's who you really are and jesus is going around saying look. It's not about who looks holy. Who's in the temple. 'cause i'm kicking it with these guys. I mean with these guys. I'm hanging out with mary magdalene all this stuff because he's trying to demonstrate that we're all in one thing together gather that there's one game happening and we're all equal beautiful dignified participants and we've taken that message jesus never came to create a religion he came to reform. He came to be a person but he reformed judaism. You're trying to correct some wrong thinking judaism. I'm not saying he was a jew. He was trying to change the way they went about. Being jewish that sounded antisemitic meant he went to change the way that he was jewish and how others were jewish in in the religious sense and that got turned into a religion because we can't it goes back to competition and ego wanna be the winners and we wanna prove that others are wrong and that's why schools are teaching you instead of what jesus would have done in my opinion. This is the <hes> the interconnectivity of these faiths were saying here's how to debate with these faiths to prove that they're wrong and you're right which is an ego trip who is proving who is wrong who is behind that debate. There's this there's this still quiet place in you you in you in me that has nothing to do with all of these identities and these words and these labels that we put on ourselves because all of that is passing away and that's what jesus is saying when he's kicking it with a tax collectors like you can't see past tax collector and you're saying the same. I'm all excited. You're saying the same mother fucking thing you can't see past someone's sexual sexual orientation that has absolutely zero effect on you right not not at all like again noted scandal uh-huh yeah we c k has the thing where he's talking about candle noted. We need a button loaded blake griffin originally the views of blake griffin do non. I'm gonna put you this. This bit bed..

You know what i mean so i started realizing maybe not that. I just like things that are funny and i know what i think is funny. I don't necessarily think i'm funny person i. I think that i know what i think is funny. I don't know if there's much of a difference there. Is your name saying no. I feel that way when people say that i'm funny. I'm still sort of like what like i get. I make people laugh and i feel funny. I i've sort of gotten over that but for the first ten years i was like no. I'm trying to be funny.

This is my joker.

It's almost like a true conspiracy ads. They're feeding cottonseed oil. That's a byproduct of the cotton industry. That's not a food.

"I've i've never done cocaine but it has to be. What cocaine is that <hes>. That would explain miami to me. If it feels like comedy i get miami because it feels so good and this is another fun pete. Holmes fund factors music with those beads elevates your heart rate to the beat of the music. I'm sure here's somebody on your with a stethoscope knows that on a team that seem guys listen to this music the shit off so after my question is after do you listen to something crazier. I'll listen to whatever doesn't matter around me afterwards. How does it feel does it feel like doing a great sad like is it. Just everything's right world. I people always say like is it. Are you comfortable comfortable on stage because you play on so many people and i am absolutely not two totally different things. I'm terrified when i go onstage afterwards. If you have like one of those sets <hes> i remember my first time in montreal. I host them in surprise show so i did five nights in a row tuesday went great day to day went good. It was my first night. Wednesday was a little bit better. Thursday was pretty much. The same set audience rotating the thursday set was like the best i had ever done that whole set you know what i mean and i came off stage and i was like this is what having a really good game feels is the exact same. I if you said it's not the same i would be like you're not killing hard enough because the way that i feel after a good set especially again to make it athletic. If if it's a bad show like david mann menezes great thing about a perfect baseball game like the team has to be down and then come back and then be down again and then come back like it's just like a movie if you watch any movie i know this is a production company. It's the same thing yeah they're winning. They're losing their winning again. Then they have to lose is to the point where you really think it's over. This is why everyone's dying in the third actor dad and then somehow they come the same thing as a as a game and it's the same thing as a stand up show if everybody's everybody's doing really poorly or if i'm doing poorly <hes> then i bring it back the high. I can't imagine anything better. Which is why i believe that it is assimilate has superhuman what you do it has to be. I mean it's it's such a similar feeling and i don't think i've ever i think that's why i keep coming back can doing more is because it's an i only really do like comedy your stand-up stuff in the off season and i think it's because maybe i like missed that feeling dude. You're setting yourself up for like a much happier retirement like when johnston was on the daily show. I was never worried about him because he'll do stand up right right right but those guys that go crazy or do drugs or get lots of different things. That's a problem. One of the reasons why <hes> substance abuse is a problem in comedy hamady because they get that feeling so your body's like throw everything to ten and then a lot of us being up like one a._m. Every every single night here in montreal up until like two a._m. Every night just because not because i was going out and doing stuff i was just a show and it wouldn't into one thirty i you know then you're hanging <music> out and i'm not a especially now that i have a baby. I i go to bed early. I went to bed at ten o'clock last night but in montreal till four like when i saw the airport i was like did you go to sleep. It's eight in the morning. Stay nightmare of a travel. It was were you on the flight. There was delayed. How do you do that how do you how do you deal with that. I went to the airport at. I rode with neil.

Yeah i'm gonna i'm gonna i angle it this way. Well let's start here. We have to edit something out. Wish for funny reason. Though can i say funny reason because i'm fascinated more with your life than like like sports interview obviously and the fact. I just ask you what you were drinking. You were like i don't know and then i said i don't so if you should say because anything that you're seeing doing is an automatic endorsement which is a much bigger deal than say if i would just like i love kit kat especially when it comes molested health and wellness thing things that are supposed to be healthy. I think that's crazy. It's a crazy life. It's like if <hes> if you see she like a guy like a basketball player.

It's a part of his workout thing and now there's like a full four class where you just go do that. It wasn't obviously just him but i have a in in my mind. He had a big well. Push on geena started. We say this. I only have so many facts but they did a study where primates monkeys gorillas will look at photos of like muscular and beautiful beautiful symmetrical or fit able guerrillas so it's like in our evolution like we love looking alpha's like we want. Isn't it cool. We we wanna see what the like when i see the reason i asked what you're drinking is because i just have an evolutionary need to be like what are you doing so now. You're gonna go waste nice exact thing but that's advertising if i drink that or eat that i'll be you but really you're like. You probably got up at four a._m. This morning and heaved things things that need to be somewhere to somewhere where they didn't want to be doing that but it doesn't seem i apply this. This is your podcast. You should be asking the question you. I just thought about this. This is it is now. It doesn't seem like so much more organic. If you just see the person in public doing like you watch it gatorade at and i don't think like in my mind. I don't even think i was like it's water in the cups one hundred cup so do you guys still drink from cups. <hes> i don't wanna get you go to like an a a an arena like you can't control that team might have a gatorade sponsorship mantra ship right so they'll put gatorade cups right behind the bench but as a kid gatorade yeah but it's water it might be is actually you know what it is. They have these the trays he's and half gaiters. Some guys like gatorade during games from guys like water. What are you doing. I do a special during during games i do. It's it's like choosing from the tooth. Same bullshit choices that i have when i go to a seven eleven is how somebody should be like. There's a little cayenne here. I can help your metabolism start making up. What is in your special. It's just electrolyte stuff so it's basically like well yeah salt with a sev several different kinds of salt you so listen. You're at no risk of sounding like a snob. I'm out of shape. I'm not exerting myself in any way and i put salt in my water. You're safe right. This is not teasing.

In other words, in other words, Jaanus who's now eligible for a supermax deal after next season is keeping his options open. If someone speculating on your future, as a an an MVP level player who's eligible for a supermax something that makes you get up and walk out of a press conference, then man, I don't know what to tell you. This is what happens in this day and age people speculate about other people's futures, especially in the NBA where history tells us that there's about a fifty percent chance, you're going somewhere else, Jaanus and the reason I say that is not anything that you've said, but just look at the first second and third team all NBA teams. Half the guys that comprise those fifteen players are playing on different teams now than they were even a couple years ago. Paul, George was pacer two years ago. Kevin Durant was with Oklahoma City three years ago. Quite Leonard was a spur this time last year. Kyrie Irving been in Boston, two years after starting out in Cleveland, we know lebrons history. Blake Griffin got traded to Detroit last year. Kimball. Walkers, probably leaving Charlotte is if you believe some of the things that you read. So man, this is the world we live in even James harden was started his career. And okay. See, I know most people associated with the rockets. Stay for the rest of the press conference man. Give a generic answer move onto the next question. If indeed. That's why you walked out. Maybe if you had been walked out didn't answer, somebody's question. Because you like an article that they wrote, I don't know what to tell

Giannis Antetokounmpo drops 41 points, Bucks surge to sweep of Pistons

"I have great news. It happened. Again. The pistons won the pistons won the pistons. Another first half of the playoff games against the bucks. However as the rules state they did have to also play the second half of the game during a gentleman by the name of Janas attentive PLO kinda to over Janas finish the game with forty one points, nine rebounds and a dominant performance that ended the season of the Detroit Pistons before we get to the pistons Jalen rose, what did you think of Janas dominance in the second half? I appreciate when your best player understands that it's a clo- closeout game. And they know out and have the best game of the series. I like that killer instinct, and this guy's virtually unstoppable as he gets a head of steam going towards the basket if you play off the him he takes up the space. It can do a euro step either way lead in good point goal. Over the top of you and bang out. And he still has the confidence to shoot jump shots, and he actually made a three. So as his office of game continues to evolve he becomes more of an unstoppable force in the league. You really does. I think a lot of people like, oh, it doesn't have a jump shot. Just back off of them say I don't know if you want him to gain that momentum those long strides long arms, you see he just went up against Andre Drummond under Jones seven foot one with long arms. These big he bounced off Drummond, switch to the other hand. And then finished in the air. Like, you do not want those types of problems. Jalen rose. The pistons have some problems now they're season's over. They didn't have Blake for the first two games in this series. I think a huge huge shout to Blake Griffin finishing out this series. He played pretty well. He was obviously hobbled. He had a great season.

Kris Humphries says short-lived marriage to Kim Kardashian was '100 percent real'

"It's been awhile since we've seen Kris Humphries on headline entertainment for sure location, but his the case today because Kris Humphries who's our hometown guy, of course, announced his retirement from the NBA today. So he is officially retired and he's reflecting on his career and his infamous seventy two day marriage. One Kim Kardashian. There are some interesting things he wrote a blog post for the players Tribune. And I've got a little excerpt for the irony of my career is that I finally figured out what kind of player I was when I got to the nets. I felt like I knew who I was finally, and then I met a girl who happened to be really famous, and I got married and damn look I should have known what I was getting into. I was definitely naive about how much my life was going to change. But the one thing that really bothers me is whenever people say that my marriage was fake. He goes on and says, there's definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real. But our actual relationship was one hundred percent real when it clear when it was clear that it wasn't working. What can I say it sucked? It's never easy to go through the embarrassment of something like that with your friends with your family. But when it plays out so publicly in front of the world, it's a whole other level. It was brutal. Yeah. I get that. I get that. And remember they started dating and they were married like ten months later. Very quickly. It took nearly two years for their divorce. Get to be finalized. They were only married for less than three months. They had a massive wedding ceremony in front of the cameras August of twenty eleven and Kris Humphries goes on to say, I didn't know how to handle it. And this is where I think you can feel a lot of empathy for the guy. He says, I didn't know how to handle it. Because I never thought I was going to be famous in that way. I remember having this moment when I was getting booed so hard in Philly, and I thought to myself why exactly are they booing need? Just because I'm that guy from TV today think I was trying to be famous is it because they think I disrespected the game of basketball the last one killed me because all I've ever wanted to be known for was basketball. You know, I know I know a woman whose son was in that wedding. Okay. Really the KEA and they all had to sign disclaimers. Yeah. Yeah. But in Christianity brought all of them like Amelia's, suits the. Oh, yeah. Okay. And but the word that what she said was it was an Kim's family. They were a nightmare. Kris Jenner was beyond rude. They didn't they treated all the Minnesota people like they were just. Foreigners far far far away land that they weren't gonna extend any courtesy to. She said it was so every was everyone was just like. The Hollywood people and then the Minnesota. For me. It sounds terrible. He says there was about a year when I was in a dark place. He didn't wanna leave his home said he feel like I don't know the whole world hates you. But they don't even know why. And then he said Kris Humphries went on to say that after his split from Kim Kardashian. There would be times when people would be like, hey, are you Kris Humphries, and he would say, oh, no. I look like him. No. I'm Blake Griffin. Who's an NBA player? And this is where I think it's this is like the heartbreaking part is when he says, I didn't wanna be Kris Humphries. It's the craziest feeling in the world not wanting to be yourself. And I didn't even want to say anything to defend myself because it felt like I couldn't win. You can't go up against the tabloids. You can't go up against that machine. There's no point in even if I played that game I felt like it would be disrespecting the game of basketball saver. They were IQ couple. I never bought him for a second hall over Kim really had. She really she had her original face when she was Chris. Picture of the two of them together. So cute wearing this like pretty neutral dress, and she is. How this wasn't going to work. When she was hanging out on lake Minnetonka. I was like what is going on here. No, there is anything is going to happen here by

"Well it looks like it's not gonna happen James Gunn will not. Be. Reinstated he had a meeting yesterday that they were calling a courtesy meeting. With one of the heads at Disney and after it it was just yet Nope just met with you kind of. Clear the air and it's not happening you, are. Not coming back despite pleas from fans and all the cast members from guardians of the galaxy so Folded hire him. Back. Alley a lot of people predicted especially now Dave Batista has to face. The idea that he said he doesn't want to do it if they don't James guns is script right. Right Thinking what you would have to be no offense, to Dave, at all it would have to be. Chris Pratt right saying I'm out I am still going to. Say and I know it's popular with some people because. They are so offended by his years old tweets but I still think, he was rocked I really do those tweets happened long before. He, was hired he couldn't apologize for them any more than he did he, show, nothing but exemplary behavior since then. The guy a second chance if? People think he'd just apologize when they found that wrong yeah he apologize years and years ago and, kept them up because he thought okay I have grown so much sense then why would I erase them and I believe from what I've, heard the real rate railroading here is. That when he was hired he gave this information to Disney and it didn't change their approach to hiring them once it was called out by, some right worrying trolls that was. When they had a problem, but I'm, also surprised just from a business standpoint and I know that people are saying Disney has to have a. Higher standard than other, businesses? But Also a business to make money and he's made a billion and a half dollars with, those first you guardians movies and I. Thought that would have been enough to get it back in maybe they think hey we've got a script yeah good anyone can get direct right, maybe Well he'll get. Picked up by.

Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri apologizes for 'miscommunication' with DeMar DeRozan

"To know basis Five things you need to know number one As we discussed earlier Toronto Raptors, president messiah Jerry, met with the media today following the. Teams trade of demar derozan for Kawhi Leonard one of the major story lines regarding trade is a miscommunication between Jerry and derozen prior to the trade. Which made the Rosenfield blindsided sided and wrong here's what he had to say about. The, miscommunication by conversation with Damara summer league I I really want to leave it at at that where we. Respo- can I spoke to him on I think may be. My mistake was talking about What we expected going, forward from him so not necessarily talking about. Trade but what I expect from him going forward and I think, that's where the gap was because in my job I always have to assume that going forward with the team that, I have and if there was a miscommunication bear I do. Apologize to. Damara and his family and, his representation it's not it's not what I meant but These. Things come on go opportunities come on go and re after react in my position. And by Hudson react this time with this deal on the table this is something we talked. About in the first hour of the show I feel bad for demar derozan Marta Rosen he is the appear, to me of what. You want in the. Face of a franchise he gave his heart. And soul of that organization he aggressively worked on his game into. Changes game for the bedroom of, the team he's the all time leader for. The raptors points in minutes games wins the guy's a Rafter so, I'm not saying glee or shame to to his time as a raptor as guy or as a man you get, Lydon's business that's the that's reality that's life in every business. Bosses are. Knocking always tell you the, truth Boss is gonna fire somebody if. They don't have the paperwork figured out from HR yet and the employee says hey. Am I am I gonna get fired tomorrow ball's gonna say everything's great and they're going to. Call them the next day but hey fire that's that's how it works Mike and get traded you're cool you're, we love you hey. You're traded not saying. That it's great I'm not saying that ideal. But this is a business And derozen figured it out the hard way number. Two the Dallas Mavericks have been spurned by free agent once again in two thousand fifteen deonte Jordan had reportedly agreed to a deal with. The Mavericks, but members of, the clippers famously flew to Houston the change Jordan's mind de'andre. Did eventually find his way to, douse as he signed a one year contract with them. This summer, but the latest issue revolves around, guard Yogi Ferrell reportedly agreed to a two year deal, with the Mavs yesterday, while today feral. Changed his mind and came to a two year six point two million dollar agreement with the kings according to Yahoo, sports, and again just? To reiterate we're just said. It's. Business and it works, in both directions I can remember when de'andre Jordan, having agreed to, be a maverick was taken. Hostage socially you know. Peer pressure, there, either grown man. But, like sorta. Back then by Blake Griffin. And Chris Paul and Doc, Rivers and what happened Chris His ball went to Houston Griffin got traded to the pistons and deandre but I thought we were friends when you came to my. Husband Texas, I thought we'd, be together forever people lie and the Mavericks are beginning to. Learn that the hard way it, also makes you wonder riccar allows a great coach who. Hasn't had, the weapons to, be great for, a very long time going back the championship run against, LeBron and the heat, man eight years, ago But, it makes. You wonder a little bit white player after player agrees to be a maverick, and then decide you, know actions. I can thought I want to.
