"Vj husky Last night i think it's hard to overstate. Just how good yannis onto the kupa was. The boy was bad on the night when he got really very little help from his teammates. Now drew holiday deed devon book criminal to a few big jumpers a couple big jumpers in the fourth quarter. Bobby portis is the only buck other than jaanus to score at least his season or playoff average or more only one so they did right but this was just about as much of a one man show as you could ever have in an nba game. You it 'cause we we talk about. We give jordan auto credit. We get lebron auto credit shack or kobe. All that but really. It's always a team effort. You always need contributions from your teammates. But this here. Fifty one points. Game-high obviously fourteen rebounds game high five blocked shots game-high as some of psycho mumbo jumbo on de'andre eight newest shook from the opening. Tim i mean this was all all the time. And i'm gonna say it and i've looked them up and i'm going to talk about close out games. 'cause he played the best game of his life in the biggest game of his life. Talk and there's nothing harder than a closeout game. nba finals. So what. I want to throw out to you. Vj is that. i believe. And i'm gonna go from the merger onwards so nine thousand nine hundred seventy seven own were we. Oh bob pettit had a fifty in nineteen game back in nineteen fifty eight bill russell. Coming back from injury only played like twenty minutes that game but still you know bill. Russell had some twenty and thirty games thirty and forty game. And you know some big games and game seventh..
"bob pettit" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"At twenty six colonies after last night. He's already and you can't anymore. Make a credible list of the twenty five greatest players in league history and not have jaanus on janas going into last night. Live's you know. On the you know the different tiers. He was beneath scottie. Pippen kevin mikhail. He was living with clyde drexler now. He has ascended past kevin garnett. he's staring durkin d. wade and barkley malone all in the eyes and we'll see how high he can get the only person in the last sixty years in the nba to at a younger age have at least two mvp's and a championship is and green the third greatest player ever. so the. what more could he have accomplished at this point in his career. The answers nothing. And i don't know who is stopping him now. Does that mean he's gonna win five rings no of course. Not but he doesn't. I mean we're now talking about. Could he one of the ten greatest players ever well. I don't see why not. Is he there yet. No if he stops claimed today though he's one of the twenty five greatest players. I don't disagree with that. And i do think there's something to be said. I mean like mahomes. We of annoyed him to a place. He's only got one super bowl right and he trailed in the fourth quarter but we look at him and go oh he does stuff nobody else can do and i do think there is a visual component. As good as kevin garnett and drexler were barkley. They didn't look physically dominant on both ends. And i think when we're making these sports bar arguments and janas has that block. And i'm like well nobody else. No league could have done that. Block when dr j. did under the basket nobody else in basketball could do it. Michael jordan switching hands there are moments in these arguments can't just come down. Data stats entitles. It's mahomes does stuff and you're like yeah. Nobody else can make that throw. I don't care if he has nine rings. I don't when i watched you honest last night. I'm like he had to plays in this series when he when he literally out runs all the guards down the floor for in the block. And i don't know when i think of all time great nick. Visual component to it do do yours. Of course it's why it's so hard to evaluate. The you know the the name that keeps getting mentioned the only guy do fifteen a closeout finals. Games bob pettit the reason no one ever talks about better all time. Greatest because no one alive saw him play except for bob riot. Take word for it. Seems like he was good but who the hell actually and so. That's a problem right. Of course it's a visual thing. And i and i'm so sick of people at a few of the yanni's critiques. That made me so frustrated. People are like well. He's just so big and strong first of all. There are sixty guys in the league as taller taller than him. There's fifty five guys in the league at that way. As much or way more than and while he didn't earn the height he earned the weight keep put muscle on. We have seen the pictures of him as a rookie. But the other element is this like wait. The big strong tall super athletic guy is dominating. Yeah that is the entirety of nba history who dominated the sixties wilton russell. The seventies kareem was green. So good well. He was seven to and had a shot literally. No one could block now magic and bird that wasn't about raw athleticism. Michael was an amazing athlete but he was average nba height. but then we got thousands. O- shaquille o'neal was it physical gifts. Lebron james yeah basketball you out of this world but he's also arguably the greatest natural athlete the world's ever seen so like it makes sense that jaanus will dominate and it makes sense that he should be great and so yeah of course there's a visual component and you mentioned dr jay's hands and you mentioned the iconic plays the the block and the dunk that he had in this series you can count on less than one hand how many human beings alive could have done either of those things much less both of them by the way what. Chris paul's future. I do think the lakers would fit but there is something to be said about. I don't know. Frank vogel is going to be there in a year. I know money williams will. I mean chris has got a little vagabond. he's he's willing to grab a suitcase and travel. But i look at it. And i think to myself phoenix feels right. That's how he should end his career. That's how i think about it this morning. Well maybe and listen you. Phoenix assuming robert server. Doesn't go full roberts tarver and decide just to be totally. Cheap and phoenix will offer more money than anybody or as much. But i'm not sure how much the money's gonna matter a three got four guys and nba. His made three hundred million on the court. Lebron garnett kobe. And chris paul and i do wonder if chris paul getting a taste of the finals is going to say what matters to me is not the three years hundred million. What matters to me is getting back to this place and while he wouldn't admit it if we're being honest colin right now. If someone were to offer you an even money wager. And i know you're a big time gambler these days colin which is more likely. The son's next year are back in the finals or the son's next year. Don't make round too. I think everyone is saying well. If it's one of the other all say they don't make round to cause. The lakers will be back jamal. Mario will be back with the nuggets. I personally believe the mavs will be super dangerous with luke in year four and then you have golden state lurking and that's not even to mention that just assuming is out for the year who knows what happens there so. I'm not sure what to chris ball if it's not money then obviously going to the lakers makes a ton of sex by the way. Don't you think it's interesting. And i know you're good friends with aaron rodgers but the oh my god you always say that the leases because joy joy brings up a good point. The timing's not great. For rogers you have the most d- lease manipulative superstar in america and the most manipulative superstar in america in the same basic vicinity. Do you think timings worse for him or for this show was a collective. Yeah keilan who abandoned janas used on the side of the road. Don't even know if he was one of the best players on playoffs and joy. Taylor who was doing a soft opening of a very strong anti yana stance just a few weeks ago. That i was trying to push towards you. I heard you. You're saying we're having technical difficulties earlier. I enjoy literally got up and pull the plug just to prevent me from reminding america that there are some really honest skepticism. Emanating gorgeous heard studio. Yes and so yeah. Is it worse for aaron or worse.

Year-old luis scola doesn't step speaker interest. I don't know why it happened but it just. It doesn't do much for me. It might be because the hall of fame. I've always brought up the quicker.

"Ten eastern to start at the rugby game that they're going to have on CBS sports network. I was actually surprised borderline disappointed last week in the first half sewed of the final season of game of thrones. Not that it wasn't a good episode. Really good episode. But what was and no one ever came out, one of the creators directors writers. But again, like NFL inside is like you take Adam chapter what he says people that are supposed to know said that because they're only having a seven episode last season that the episodes are going to be like their own miniature movies that it's going to be so intense that they they're they're not short changing you in its final season. It's just going to be kept to seven episodes. So that they're all going to go a little bit. Look fifty four minutes done a regular any of the previous seasons. Every once in a while finale of a given season might go and our eight minutes or something like that fifty four minutes fifty six maybe over and done with. So you didn't get the added value that first episodes. We'll see what happens tonight episode number two of the final season, which kinda got caught between a rock and a hard. Today again, Jodi McKay on CBS sports radio and get you guys up will run George give me for going off by the for just a second is getting ready to get out of my house. This morning got up my coffee, get ready to roll. And I was debating on how it's going to get the work today. I can go one of two ways either I can drive or I can take mass transit. And when I take mass transit getting out of here. Get out and two hours and seventeen minutes. If I take my I got walked to the path train, and then the path runs unscheduled it runs and take it over to jersey to Newark. And then I get a New Jersey transit train and take that from north jersey down, south jersey. And then I gotta drive home thereafter. If everything runs on schedule from the time, I get off the air until the time I walk in my door somewhere between two and a half hours to forty five usually closer to forty five then to thirty if I'm good time. Kate everything step on the train tried there. Get off trains air within five minutes. Cope can do it in two and a half. But usually to forty five which get me on fifty minutes before getting thrown starts. Let me relax. Take my coat off to down. Maybe get by teed won't be ready to watch TV at the top of the hour. If I drive there's no massive traffic. I make about an hour and twenty five minutes 'cause I just tried faster than a subway last train can go. And then I got no worries about missing the start of the show. So I was gonna drive today because I didn't want to risk not being home on time. But I got a real good book that I'm reading and when you're on the train or the subway, aka. The Pat you do all the reading that you wind because you relax, you set down you grab spot. Boom. You don't worry about it driving. It's kind of tough to tip from you, buddy. Jodi, MAC, don't read and drive. Okay. That's a bad combo. You should not read and drive at the same time. So just because I have this book that I'd started yesterday wanted to continue reading I said, let me take after eight damn Ukraine's better be work. Pat engineers out there. New Jersey transit. You bet that train on time. I don't wanna miss the beginning of thrones tonight. Eight five five two unto four two two seven we'll from Alabama. Thanks for your patience as well. Hey, Jodie happy Easter brother, how do you? But. So topic in the last hour about NHL playoffs NBA playoff kind of weird sports fan for down here, Mexico and into sports broadcasting, but I'm a forty Niners and has they sharks they represent the bay area, and bam, and I'll tell you the NHL playoffs are definitely better than NBA. I got three reasons. Number one. They lay whitening come out this year with what most points in in NHL, right? The most wins. Yes. Okay. So you know for basketball fans, Adele, ROY fall with hockey. That's like a couple of years ago. The warriors seventy three games and getting swept by the eight seat. You never see that in the NBA. So there you go upset if you like them. There's one reason watching H L to it's a crazy sport. Man. I mean, for God's sakes skating swords out there, you know, at any can fall and cut the jugular, you know, whatever. And then third reason is people say, well, you know, hockey's really intent that guy earlier about, you know, bunch of hard workers all this stuff, you can have her hard work and hockey teams. But you could also have beautiful hockey teams that play basketball is, you know, with the passing in the movement and stuff. So you really can't have you know, your reasoning there. So I just wanted to get those three reasons out there as well. I think everybody should be watching NHL playoffs over the NBA player. I got nothing. I got no problems with upset. Tampa. Shame on you. You had this phenomenal regular season. And then you went to delay today. That's supposed to be the NHL fall to the sports fault. No. It's the team's fault. Maybe they came in with not enough of an age. Maybe they came in thinking that they were going to just cake walk in the first round looking ahead to face in someone else in upcoming Eastern Conference mad. I don't know why they lost only they know why they lost. But I know that they did lose. And I don't think the sport or that setup or anything else should be blamed other than the team itself. Ron from Tulsa up on CBS sports radio. Hey, ronnie. Hey, Jodie MAC. You be. And good. I got love football. I'm young enough to remember when Notre Dame beat oh, you seven to three that broke. Oh, use forty seven game win streak. Okay. So you've been following college football for a good while now. Good for you, the NBA Bob Cousy what the Celtics. I remember when Bob Pettit which she free throws for the Saint Louis hawks underhanded. So that yeah. I have a question. What did you think about Westbrook's? Triple double amazing just fell a bit short of my favorite player of all time. We'll chamberlain. How would you? It says his individual for arms. I think Russell Westbrook is one of the most talented players not only in the NBA today but to ever play the game as far as physical skills. Go. I've been lucky enough to see Russel Westbrook play a handful maybe slightly more than a handful of PLA games live right down on the floor media guys oftentimes get to sit close to floor and television does not do him Justice with the explosion it. He has with the quickness that he has the ability get off the floor and above the rim in a short period of time as he does he does it like nobody else has ever done it in the history NBA. He's these that physically gifted now, I think from time to time Russia short circuits that he gets his own head out there on the floor. And he just loses track of what's actually transpiring any game and get so caught up in his dominate. Eating a game that he actually can become counterproductive. And that to me is a fall. He's got some traits, and some positives that make them a great. I mean great player, but he's not a perfect player by any stretch city magic. And that's why I think guy like Kevin Durant said now, you know, what I'll move on. Because Russell at times is going to get onto my skin because he plays the game the way that he does. And I'm not saying he's a just utter ball hog. That is a self glorification monger. Because we've tech does any NBA in basically, all sports. I don't think that's I just think he's so Ober competitive and knows what he's capable of doing that at times. He's a tough very tough to coach player that he can go in a huddle in shake his head coach gonna do exactly that. And it goes out there, and Russell let's his mindset and his body takeover, and he doesn't necessarily execute. What the coaches ad in mind. So while I appreciate Russell, Westbrook's talent and skill level. It is above and beyond. Maybe anyone else in the game. Is the reason why he's not the best player in the game? Because there are also shortcomings to wrestle. Russell Westbrook's game joy for Minnesota's up on CBS sports radio. How are you George? Jodi, good good to hear your voice here in Minnesota today. My pleasure. Thanks for checking in what do you got for me today? I just wonder where you are on the Kentucky Derby, we're getting close down. I haven't heard you talk too much about it. I've got some thoughts. I'm looking for looking for somebody other than one of the favorite though. I think it's a really talented field this year some real excited about here's. Here's my thoughts under Dr oh, by the way, I guarantee you between now and the top of the hour here next to three minutes, you're not gonna get pick the Kentucky Derby because I don't have feeling yet. It's not happening. But I will say this over all about where I think the Derby's headed, and what the is gonna look like unconductive derby day going in with a mindset of well, you don't play the Kentucky Derby favorite because this race twenty horses. It's just bad business. You're not gonna get a short price Kentucky Derby favorite because there is no standout. So the favorite is going to go off at. I think five to one would you don't usually get on any given rates any given day, you go to detract favorite punk five one. Your favorites can be five to one or more. So if you do come do all your handicap than make you flag Ray, eliminate orces to thing you do to try and pick a winner, and you pick the favorite don't shy away because he's the favourite because you're still going to get a pretty damn good price on them. So don't throw out the favorite because he the favorite. If you don't think he's the best and there's a horse. If the patient is six to one and you like a horse states, fourteen fifteen one we'll go ahead and take your horse. Don't pick the favorite if it's real close between two that big a difference. Then go ahead go for the value. But if you do believe that the favorite is the best horse don't say, well, no, I gotta take my second best because there's just no value attached. There's going to be value because there's no standout choice. I don't love the favorites. As of right now. I'd love the balance of the field. But I'm not married to roadster Omaha beach who probably going to be that five or six to one favorite has been dealing with a quarter crack injury, but he supposedly. I didn't know about that. Impressed with his his Arkansas derby in the slot supposedly ran within both of his last two races which were vote Lansdowne in Arkansas. So it's not a debilitating injury. But when you have a a crack you take that bad step your race races over. So makes it a little bit more dicey. Back in them in the Kentucky Derby, I really in. And and probably fill in that thing a little bit putty. I am I'm probably going to put more emphasis on the derby workout more this year than I have in previous years. I think they're important. I don't think you can make your decision solely on who looks the best in their last two workouts leading up to the derby, bud because this is such a bound feel because I don't have a hard leaning one way or the other. I liked improbable all year, but he got beaten both of his last two prep races. I still like him by completely off them. But I don't like them as much. As I did coma is a horse to I didn't like when the derby trail started. But was very impressed with the way that he won in the bluegrass, despite the fact that I don't love his stride only does his win. And if he works well leading up to the Kentucky Derby, and I get a video of them any looks like he's done away with little greenness.
"bob pettit" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"So Vicki officially retired. And here's the difference. So wait went on a tour because he knew that the end was near for sure, but Dirk made official last night. I think we all if you're following the NBA a new kind of speculate like Vince been around for a long time that the end was coming but Humaid official that night yesterday that he was leaving the NBA turkovich ski is such a special player. I'm glad he's able to win at least you ring one in the twenty ten twenty eleven season because that particular finals that he was in. He was absolutely on fire. I look at the names, Dirk Nowitzki on basketball reference dot com. The names that acquaint to Dirk Nowitzki career ready. Kevin garnett. Tim duncan. Julius Irving Charles Barkley Karl Malone Larry Bird, LeBron James. Bob Pettit doll Shays, Paul Pierce. It's a name for your famous there at the very least it is shows you how great he was when he came in the league and the way he was able to knock down threes at his height at his size. It was totally different. And so now, you're seeing here in twenty nineteen that if you are a big band, and you cannot knock down the three then you don't you're not useless. But it just shows you don't have the verse till your game. Dirk Nowitzki is the measuring stick for that. Because someone who's at his size at seven foot to be able to put the ball on the floor could defend all positions. He was a terrific player and for him to to go out great and way too and they both able to win their championship. So this great time for those two that are going out the way they want to go out neither one of them according to the playoffs. But that's okay. They've got their rings in their success. So glad you're.

"I hate normally when the happens, but this was a game twenty which you just saw guys including the Bronx just sort of walking back on they won't even running back and Atlanta was beating them down the floor. It was interesting. The hawks had on some uniforms. You Ricky I saw them Saint Louis hawks. They take back the. What Pettit Bob Pettit for like that? Anyway, the Lakers stunk it out they need a break, and they need to come back excited and ready to play when they come back. I don't think they're coming back with Luke Walton. I don't think he's the coach most are break. I think he will be sacrificed in the case of LeBron James. I can't even imagine how he's feeling he's been to eight strays exhaust line earned out. And I don't know I four hundred win fifty just by him being there. Let me point out a couple of players who are not there anymore who pretty players in the league. Now, you might not have thought they would be okay ngelo. Russell is really deploy. And they had to get rid of him. They had random I didn't think I like getting rid of Julius for them. But I mean, I would like both of the if I had the Lakers right now. I would like both of those people playing for me. I I mean, I don't you look at them, and they appear to be sort of lost. And I think Anthony Davis trade, I think I think that was rushing Because state. they thought that they would get him. I think the lack of that trait has heard both know that the lows New Orleans and the lakes only I think the Lakers have personnel enough assets on the court to make the playoffs and competitive in the play all they gotta be to Tony they gonna make like this. You know, the phrase nobody using more we used to use all men down in the Malia the Lakers looked like that last night. Let's see what they looked like when they come back. You got to be a whole lot better than this. It's only the reason I missed the chunk of dukes come back because I was watching a much higher level of basketball between the Celtics and Sixers and Philly Joel Embiid Jimmy Butler, and that on Sambol play dead, even with Al Horford, Gordon Hayward, and that unsolvable, but Boston even without Kyrie Irving continued its ownership of Philly, the sees of now one ten of the last twelve in this match up and tell them looking right past and B's postgame shot at the rest. Do he and the Sixers have a Celtics problem. Let's go over the numbers. The Celtics always. Beat the seventy Sixers with Kyrie Irving or without Cari, Irving, they're five and a with them. They're five and two without him ten and twelve as you mentioned. That's the problem. Joel Embiid yells at the refs and storms out of the post game press conference, which indicates volatility, and perhaps a little bit of immaturity. Al Horford owns him when they play he owns him a little bit. So when you look at those teams, and I'm not saying that in a playoff series. Sixers win. I'm not saying he couldn't Alaska what I'm saying. You hocutt them right now. Well, Yeah. yeah. Boston beat them. I think it was four games to one in a playoff series last year without Kyrie Irving now. So and so I think this also helps Boston in a way given little Jesse to say really you want to be pitches. Gonna to take him back Him for the season. for the season. I wasn't of embarrassment because the game was dead. Even Tony they lost that by the way, by the way. Embiid was fouled. He was. That's why it should have gone to the line shirt to down to but Horford is anything game. Or if it owns them. He cared when Horford regards shooting percentage, much low much lower than anybody else. So we'll do they have a Celtics problem. Yeah. That's what I thought. Yeah. Because they had a whole team pretty much on the floor last night..
"bob pettit" Discussed on Slate's Dear Prudence
"Hello and welcome back to the dear prudence show once again, and is always I am your host, dear prudence, otherwise known as Daniel Mallory or Burg, and with me in the studio this week is ebony atoms in author activist and the co host of the podcast feminist frequency radio along with an SR keys, Ian and Caroline Pettit. She is the co author of the recently published history versus women the defiant lives that they don't want. You to know. Ebony welcome. Thank you so much for having me. Thank you so much for finally coming on the show and completing the hat trick a feminist frequency. Well, what I'm hoping is that now that people have built up some goodwill for Nita. And Caroline as advice givers, that it will not matter that I'm about to just really foul us out as a team with my advice. I would like to by the way, just go ahead, and and apologize for saying hat trick to begin with. Because if you're gonna start adding basketball metaphors, I we have exhausted. My knowledge of. What basketball ball? I got nothing. I got nothing. So the only thing I know about basketball is a tweet threat. I saw like years ago from this one guy talking about this time that his dad's like retired rec league team destroyed him in one guy kept yelling out the name of basketball players you've never heard of including Bob Pettit. So every time I see Caroline last name. I just picture someone yelling Bob Pettit and wearing like socks up to their knees. I love it. And you know, what I'm going to ask Carro if if she is related in any way to Bob Pettit, or if she would like to claim it now, that's a really good question. That'd be amazing. If he was like, her grandpa or something, I know, right? But only if they have a good relationship. I don't want to take down dark wrote. I love basketball, but I don't pretend to actually know what I'm talking about. So yet any sports metaphors, I employ during the show are going to be Bogle house completely. I look forward to people calling me on the carpet. I. Looking forward to it too. I am going to go ahead and get us started. With our first letter. I feel like part of the reason by the way that I wanted to do a couple of bonus letters is at the end is all the letters that were coming in this week. We're just like my boyfriend my boyfriend my boyfriend, and there's just a limit to how many like boyfriend problems. I think we as a show should be adjudicating. So I do want to try to hustle. I have thoughts about this. Yeah. This by the way, this morning was the live chat. And there was one of this line. Just really got to me this woman and her boyfriend were in the process of moving out from one another they weren't breaking up yet. But they were moving apart largely because the boyfriend got really irritated whenever they had guests if she would like clean the house beforehand or consider it kind of incumbent upon her as the hostess to like show them around and dedicate sometime to them what? And she said the line that really stuck with me was he thinks it's fake when I clean before a guest is coming, and I could just picture that kind of guy who's like the dirt in the bathrooms really authentic. And if Moirer is going to be getting the full experience of being in our hosts anything that she should have to step on smudges when she gets out of the shower. How do you how do you as a presumably grown ask person even fix your mouth to say anything? But thank you. When someone cleans your living space, you're cleaning. So in authentic like boy by I just need to live here with some real dust bunnies. Okay. That's just what happens when your skin sloughs off sales. There's so many different kinds of people in this world, so many different kinds. There's a rich tapestry. All right. So I object. First letter boyfriend is always late. Dear prudence, my boyfriend of three years has no respect for my time or my schedule..
