Will Doncic's Practice Habits Make Him the Next Jordan?

"What are his practice Habits Like like what? What is he like when we do see him but you do. Is he the same way as he smiling and having fun yet, very professional and also able to kind of have that killer instinct in practice. I thought well, he's a competitor and his practice habits each year continue to get better and better. He's a young guy that likes to compete. So when we're doing stuff offers, you know, five-on-five competition or will have some kind of a a prize for a you know, winning a drill. I mean he reminds me a lot of Jason Kidd that way and if you come up with a dog To try to simulate something, you know kid and and digest or guys that will figure out the best possible way to manipulate the drill to you know, like practicing one day where yeah, you had to make at least five passes for you got shots. So his adjustment to it was to throw it back and forth to the fight to the to the center four times in the back one and then that you know, she can play you know, and so but but this is this is what great players and some of the real, you know, survive fingers that we've seen in the history of this game. You're talking about guys like bird like Magic Johnson Jordan, you know was it was very very similar LeBron James. I'm sure Kobe Bryant was was a lot like just too but as as as time moves along, you know, the the level of growth is really there and in all areas from Skillet.

"Celtics fans don't know a ton about tristan thompson. You coached him. I've known since he was a texas even before that when he was a you ball a little bit. I love this kid. I i love him i say kid. He's not a kid anymore. But this guy but i love him because everything. I've heard about him is. He is such a about the right things. And he's a great. Everybody always said unbelievable locker room. Guy what can you tell celtics fans about tristan thompson and that part of it because we know he plays hard court. We know he's gonna get after he's not the most skilled offensive player. But what is it about tristan thompson that if you are coaching you want him on your team. Well first of all all correct jeff. Just terrific kit or no longer kid. I had him when he was kid off. But just the kind of guy that you knew you could depend on. That was a friend and a a a good influence on. Everybody around him understood Way needed to do at embraced it without any hesitation. He he's sort of the ultimate peace. You know what i mean. Not a guy that give a big part of the game to heal carve out his peace and he will do whatever it. Is that the coach or the team needs him to do. You know these guys are just so valuable now. I mean personally. I thought that was a toe. Ariffin hiccup on part of the the celtics. Because i i felt the tristan had sort of come to the end of the road with with cleveland. You needed a change and the celtics needed a player with his particular skills. I'll tell you guys this this secret. I've always. I've always contended the tristan. Thomas is the greatest fourth-quarter rebounder particularly on the office of in that i ever coached ages had a knack in the fourth. Quarter forgetting big rebounds particularly on office when you need the extra possession when you when you need when you need somebody who will do something To get the team over the hump. And that's that's great. That's great quality great skill. Not a lot of people I need to go to my guys and asked him if that's true because that's what i saw those days. He was the best fourth quarter rebounded that i never. I had ever come into contact with any always did it with With a smile essense purpose in in in he valued that fact that you know my contribution needs to be this piece and you know he was ready and enable for the task of thought that was just a great move on the part of the celtic.

Does Lebron have the highest basketball IQ in the game?

"Lebron for all of his incredible towns. I think he has the highest basketball. I q that. I've ever seen you know when we talked about some bonus before it's it's the same kind of thing and i'll give you an example of what i mean. There are a few plate players. I've coached many my career that you can teach plays to and it will take you a number of repetitions or even a number of days until guys really catch what they're supposed to do whatever system or sequencing Date you're used there are there are very few guys. Lebron probably being the best of them that can see what it is you wanna do and not only after one time running through it know what he is responsible for but he knows every position and every option of every player on the floor and and i think that's really really unique. You know so if you if he's sitting down for wild as a played new put in different stuff all he has to do. Sit there look at one time. He's got it or if you wanna particular defensive sequencer tactic you know. It takes him literally seconds to to understand not only his place in the picture but the entire picture you know and that speaks volumes to how intelligible basketball player. He is

Why the Celtics Might Be Starting to Tune Out Coach Brad Stevens

"I do wonder if the Celtics are starting to tune out Brad it took eight years guys Bob, you know, I think Larry said to you after 3 years, we stopped listening and I love Brad Stevenson. I think the coaches love Brad Stevens. I don't know if players love Brad Stevens. That's what I'm working. Love them. I just don't know if if again they have that respect form in a sense of of that. He can really motivate them and he can like push the right buttons. I think he knows one button to push and I'm not sure again. Sometimes you gotta jump guys. Sometimes you get to get up up in them. And that's never going to be Brad Steve Jobs. That's in and to me it's not just Brad. So this is Bob. There's nobody else in the staff that can do that. Like go get a veteran guy that everybody respects that can really jump these guys and get on them and be the bad guy cuz that's not Jay larranaga. That's not Jerome Allen. None of these guys. So not even Turner What's that? Not even sure, right? Yeah. I mean everything's going to be a player turned coach now like he's oh that's not going to be his role. I mean, I love Evan Turner. I think it's going to be a really good coach someday. But yeah, I think you're right to some extent. The only male say is getting rid of Hayward probably solves a few issues Dynamic, you know, that that he caused not off to his, you know through his own, you know doing like wasn't his fault, but but Gordon obviously Brad was trying to play him two years ago and get him minutes and get him. And I think a lot of players resented that

"All right, Jeff Goodman and Bob Ryan say you're on the garden report on ceiling Us Media talking the Boston Celtics and the big question. I have that I'm going to post you right now. Robert Ryan is off is Jaylen Brown ready? If Kemba Walker is not ready, which is not going to be the start the season and if Kemba Walker isn't the Kemba Walker that we remember in Charlotte days a hundred percent. Kemba Walker is Jaylen Brown ready to be the number two guy for a team that can contend for the Eastern Conference Championship. He has gotten he's dead. Incrementally better and really so far. He is extremely bright as we know. He's certainly capable of assessing the situation. I think he's capable of making these templates do that. You know with the yes, I do. I think you can recognize that they need and I think you know and as I say keep generally getting better and better offensively, he was always, you know, excellent young young Defender, you know, and so I'm he's really honest I didn't he didn't need to be convinced or anything but he's really just grown in in my mind, you know on me to the point where you know, I think he's a dead, you know, what do I know start and you can argue that and then I'm not I think that's High Praise. So I say no I say Jaylen Brown is not good enough to be the number to God. I say defensively absolutely. Yeah when you're getting up and down and transition, yes, but if you do have Kimba if you've got Jeff Teague and Marcus Smart to me, you're going to be playing more in the half-court and I don't think that is where Jaylen Brown thrives. I still think he struggles with his decision making a half court. I think he's great as your number three guy on a team. I don't think you can count on him every single night and we've seen that he's inconsistent with his shot his inconsistent with his decision making is passing ability. So I think they're in trouble if if Jaylen Brown's gotta be your number two guy. I think the Celtics are not a team that can win or compete for a conference title. All right..

No Kemba Walker Spells Danger for the Celtics

"Me if the Celtics don't have a healthy Kemba Walker by February 1st during major trouble like making kiss. This is a good by going deep in the playoffs. They got no chance you lose Hayward and then you're going to lose Kemba I get you get Tristan Thompson's great as as a auxiliary. Peace, but I I don't think it gives you a much different than what Daniel theis does. He gives you a toughness it gives you a rebound and gives you an athletic hard work and forward, but but it's not like either one of those guys. You can't neither one of them are scores. No, but they don't need a score of their know if they you know, if they if they don't have Kemba, I don't have Kimber. Yeah, right. I know right? Well, that's that's my big issue is if you don't have Kimber Kemba needs to be he's gotta be your number two guy Tatum's clearly your number one now. I don't think anybody would argue with that. But Kim is gotta be your number too. And if they don't have him you go from Kim, but it's Jeff Teague. And again, we didn't see a healthy Kimball last year. We remember Kimba as man. He just wasn't very good in the postseason you forget Charlotte Kemba and if you have Charlotte came up to me, then this team has a chance to come out of the East without Charlotte Kemba. All right, so I agree with that but I still don't think they're disaster. I think there's still a good team good team. Are you better I mean if it were just trying to invalid and prorating how many W's with a truncated season if it were an eighty-two Game season, I'm Kemba Walker. Could be a 45 6:20. Yeah. Yeah, I would I would agree with that but looking at it now without camp for half the year. Let's say let's say he doesn't come back until February 1st. So he's going to miss 2 months of a 72 game schedule. So what's that a third of the year? No not too much six weeks because they're starting on the 23rd of December. Okay, so often so just so I don't have any, you know, the I mean, I don't want to start trying to do math in my head. That's so humorous five weeks five six weeks probably, you know before he gets a hundred percent. He maybe maybe too much but they're going to come back to schedule. So at least 15 games. I'm sure this is why the Jeff Teague signing was so important. Oh it was I was a terrific signing and if I can put him doing what he should you know, how long we know who he is, you know, we know what it is and he's it's a high quality of such a high-quality auxiliary piece. He's a very useful auxiliary teasing. You're right. If you're going to make him a if you want to elevate him into a starter and a guy to your depending on then that's a different matter. But using him the way he said they projected, you know, that was an excellent pick up, you know, so but let's go through Bob without without a healthy camera. Tell me if they're better than any of these teams. Okay with our healthy Kim but like like a 90% Kemba ready Milwaukee. No. Toronto No the Nets. We don't know probably find Miami now clearly not know we go down there. Yeah, Philadelphia Phillies a mystery guest now, we think they saw that they they've done what they need to do. We think. All right. Let's see but I cuz I thought it would suck. Yes. I mean, yeah, I think seven Indiana is better without Kemba. Okay. So you got you got one more to throw in the mix Home Improvement team, but you know as Atlanta they're going to read during pooped on paper. The good thing is the good thing is even without camera there probably a lot for the play-offs but they you're talking about seven problems. I agree. Well, that's you know now why that's true. So I think we can agree on

I was wrong with it because it wasn't about talent. I didn't think all right. Let's get right to it. I welcome in another edition of Iran and Goodman podcast, he's Bob Ryan. I'm Jeff Goodman and but I am a little Montreal Expos here for you. Today is Expo Sola. I loved it. I loved that shirt. That's great. Your favorite expose player of all time was Tim Raines to raise. Well, I gotta go back to rust off my first visit to Montreal ever was nineteen seventy one. And of course we had to go to Parks jolly and the Guam the lawn just must he was known he said, you know well off. Us with a three-run bomb and yeah, I'll tell you what though. I was on the subject. I think it's such a shame what happened to that franchise and strike. There's no question that that killed the franchise. They were the best team in baseball that year. They had a 74 and forty record on the August twelfth Nineteen Ninety Four when baseball stop playing and it and you just got the players said they dispatch two other teams, you know after that and Andre Dawson and John wetteland and on and on and anyway, and you know, they didn't have a good ballpark it started off as a terrible place. Anyway, I regret that I wish they were still there. However, we're back to basketball. I'm sorry I say this. The first game Paul Silas ever played in the Celtic uniform after he was traded was an exhibition in the Montreal Forum. Wow, the Bucks wage interest and that was good. Yeah. How about that notice a piece of trivia for the day is you you can wow in any cocktail party with that one. Nobody's going to know the answer to that one. Now, you know, you can get that one and you would call Silas are the only two human beings on the planet that are going to answer that. He doesn't remember it. I'm sure I'm the only person on Earth that knows this so Mom had a serious for a minute. We had an NBA Finals series for like and I never believed we had a serious job. I did I know people wanted to get excited that maybe the heat could could push him if they gave him back and Dragons back. Well dragons is done. We we see that now the plantar fasciitis trust me from somebody, who knows I've dealt with it since last December it is Undead. Terrible so dragons is done bam comes back. But listen, the bottom line is the Lakers are just way too good with LeBron. Let me just said, yep. I agree. It's 321 and they're going to win in a distant, but they're right in that game. So to minute more minute Mark, you know, but there's different the last dagger was the 3.6 without put the nine and but I mean they were in the game and you know, they want to be humiliated. It's not it's not inconceivable. They could still make it go six months. It's not it never just no home court, but you know, honestly, are you intrigued even if if you're six how intrigued it just extends the season for us for 1000 a game that we can watch and keeps them in the bubble for another day that everybody to and everybody wants to go home. You know that everybody including the heat. I'm sure are getting to that point Club. No, no, you're right it we had that illusion of a series for the and the Lakers when they came out with a tent turnover first. You kind of knew they weren't into it right off but and then able to give them the member in that game..

The Los Angeles Clippers Have Fired Doc Rivers

"Another myth another legend was fired Bob and I don't you were shocked as I was I, didn't see this coming where Doc rivers we had on the podcast you and I are both huge fans of doc as a human being as a coach. I don't. I. Don't know where I stand right now. Obviously, he is blown some big leads the latest being one in the bubble. Denver and with a team that let's face it. Steve. Balmer paid doc rivers big money to win a championship not not be eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in the in the western conference semifinals so Valid or not valid to let doc rivers go. I knew that we all knew that losing another three to one was not a good thing to have on on anyone's resume to do it twice in. Three years. And the do it with this owner as you said, who invested the overpaid for the team I think even by modern standards that teams are worthy he he got a little giddy with his two billion dollar plus purchase of the clippers the Lakers we could see but not the clippers. So okay, he's invested in this and I worried about it a little bit but I didn't think it would happen. I thought it was a possibility of Steve Bomber angry. But, I, thought it was an of course couching it. It's mutual ha you know coming out of the usual walk away from that money it's the modern. Thing to do that say it's mutual nationally I felt badly because I am very proprietary to a doctor and I have communicate with him already. But. It's understandable that an owner. Successful businessman. Odyssey's bomber is a highly successful with that investment. I I don't know what I don't know Jeff is the level of his own personal basketball acumen. I don't know how much he thinks. He knows he knows more doesn't knows more than that part I don't know you know. Here's what I'll tell you about. Here's what I'll tell you I. Don't think this was all Steve. Balmer. My guess is Jerry West who they pay a ton of money as a consultant. Okay. As a consultant. Yeah. Good point is Jerry West played a significant. In this move and now the question will be. What what's next in the big thing with doc and you and I know this we've been around enough. Great human being great communicator. But the biggest words that you would hear from players about doc dating back to the Celtics was a little bit of a Country Club, right? It's it's easy doctors a practice much. Older players veterans love, them. Again it's where you want to go to and the latter part of your. Extend Your career. and You wonder if that played a huge part here because certainly the clippers didn't look like there were in tiptop condition in the bubble weather. It was Knox fault whether it's back that mantras Harrow had a death in the family and didn't come into the bubble too late whether it's a fact that Lou Williams left the bubble and came back the Patrick Beverley. There were there were a lot of issues. But ultimately. It. Probably does follow on doc in a sense that you had the pieces you had the pieces. You shouldn't be watching if you're the clippers, you can't be watching the Los Angeles Lakers right now compete for

It's just there's no accident. That's not an accident. I didn't know what I was wearing that you can't. Sell out to me, so it's amazing. The insensitive thing to do in the context of who he is you know. Amazing insensitive or. Center if the delivered actors incentive, or is it just possibly stupid? It's hard for me to believe he'd know exactly what he's doing. Wearing out particular shirt a so I, know I don't know I don't know I. Don't see I know if I were one of those young men I would not want to play for him. At all. Is Well. How's it worth it to Oklahoma state that could coach. Other people out there you, can you? Look at his his resume but I. don't think it's that good bob to where you know. If this were elite elite coach, you have no choice. About while. I'm not. Disappointed as well as other coaches yeah, he was eight last year seven and six year before they went to like to average bowls before that he had a run of three straight years where he was standing three, but. You know last year it's ranked either las two years. They weren't ranked in the post in in the final. Hold it in. They didn't win a lot of games. So what do you?

Black Basketball Player for LSU and Garett is so smart so smart. I feel like he should be the the the NBA Players Association President He's not. He's not I think for that role, but you know Kyri came up you know. He had some courts in there. That were certainly interesting You know one of which was basically that not everybody in this league. you know makes makes a ton of money and they're trying to divide us. You Know I. Just I understand it I get it. I heard Damian Lillard. Talk about it yesterday that they don't want to take the focus away from impacting chains right now, and they almost feel like if they're playing basketball a lot of the black players. that. They are kind of taking away from their platform. To create a sustained change with everything that's happened with George. Floyd some of the other. Issues that arise. I just. I don't know how I feel about it because I'm not in their. Bob So. It's so hard for me to relate, but I feel like. Can't they do both in a lot of players in that call also felt like.

We're not all making thirty million a year, a lot of us. A lot of players this money and also have to worry about if they don't play this season. What the new CBA because they can scrap it. I think so. What what that could look like next year in one of the players? I couldn't tell who it was by their voice on the call, but one of them made it clear on that is. Donovan Mitchell said he was worried about getting hurt and if he gets hurt how that would. How that would..

Component face masks that you see here. And because you're already know that little excursions into New Hampshire. Even newburyport now bob. I went a month ago and you'd see I. Don't Know Eighty Ninety percent wearing masks, and now I'm telling you. We're one of probably ten, maybe twenty percent that are wearing a brand new report. Here onto Tony South shore a Boston.

They actually play in any of these sports GONNA be. Really Interesting Sociological Study. Yeah I don't know media-wise. We don't know how many people lot of idiot.

For an Africa somebody said. We get the vaccine. You know it's going to be very very very very very different. World I can't remember who said it, but I read something where one of the broadcasters national broadcaster said. They don't think they'll be down there. They'll do it You know probably from Atlanta from from Turner Studios. What people don't realize is? College ESPN had started this. Shortly after I got there five five years ago six years ago, they started saving money and doing a ton of games from the broadcasters would be in a cramped, little studio, calling the game. From the studio in either Bristol Charlotte or other places to save money on some of the Games at frankly. More worth it to send an entire crew down there. They would just have kind of a bare bones. deal with maybe a you know producer or Director and obviously cameras down there. Little else so you know it's been done before. And you just wonder again the players. Are Going to react. To, an, empty I guess there's twenty. I'm told they can bring every NBA, team can bring twenty. People down beyond the players so I don't want equipment guy a PR guy. One maybe general manager somebody in management you know, then you see, you're not GonNa Bring You retire coaching staff so a lot of the people that sit in the second row. Coaches. Probably, don't end up going. No, no, there's no doubt about that. It's that that won't happen because I the N.. The NBA I started with one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, nine included no assistant coaches, so I mean no assistant coaches nine. Now. There was one bed they started trickling in nearly seventy people actually had an assistant coach, and very often you. The coach's duty was. Heavily weighted towards scouting as well, and they were, they were, they were multiple. Tap out the scouts as well as assistant. Larry style hired. Thomas Sake I was one of the first ones.

He'll come out of it. I can't imagine I I can't imagine the League has already you've been without him. I can't imagine the world without David Stern and I'm still not sure how to process that. But I did know that when the moment came to have a podcast to discuss thus David stearns legacy and all the complexities of the man That the first person I would wanNA talk to the person sitting across from me in the studio right now. That's my good. The friend former colleague at the New York Times and of course hall of Famer Basketball Hall of Famer Harvey Aronson. Thank you for being good to be here good to be here solemn occasion I I agree and But it's good to be here. Thank you this is. This is tough so we were talking about this a little bit before we started recording and as I just said I can't imagine it's just the the idea that David Stern would Just that he's that he's not among still. There are certain people who you have in such high regard who are such titans titans who are such just just giants of their field or of the world at large that I feel like they're almost unkillable. David Stern like I would not bet on the David Stern versus death. I'm betting on David. Stern like literally going to punch death in the face and said get the fuck Outta here. I ain't ready yet and I I truly I believe these last few weeks ever since the news of the brain hemorrhage that he was going to rally because he is he's as we know he's a fighter and he's stubborn as hell and I figured that would be That would apply across the board and Yeah I still. I still can't quite believe he's gone. You have known him much longer than I have starting in late Seventies. He made his presence felt he was. He was lead counsel will when he came over from his law firm. Proske our rose in these four. Names and FRESCA Rosen Mendelssohn. I always forget the third one pro scour they always I was just called but he made his presence felt around the league and particularly with the media long before he became deputy commissioner in the early eighties and then commissioner in Nineteen Ninety Four. And you know I always found it interesting especially as we went on into the ninety s and into the new century that people looked at the NBA. And they would say you know. David Stern became commissioner. Larry Bird and Magic Magic Johnson entered the League one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty season and it was a rocket to the moon right from there. And you know it's just a revisionist sense of history because David did not become commissioner until Nineteen eighty-four and bird and magic. Were already in the League. For four years the league was still a very troubled entity. You know almost you know almost a half decade into the bird magic era. There are a lot of issues. There were teams that were said to be on the verge of close of folding there was no salary cap op. There was no drug testing drug plan. A lot didn't happen until David actually became commissioner but those of us who cover the league regularly knew to him and I knew him I knew him from being around but I got my first as we all know our first David Stern phone call. Aw when I was working at the New York Post and I want to say it was probably around. Nineteen eighty one. Maybe and. He's he's Deputy Commissioner Deputy Commissioner or just about to become deputy commissioner and I I had decided as the Knicks beat writer that I was going to befriend Larry Fleisher. Who is the director of the Players Association and fancied myself as pro-labor Grew up in a labor union household and I was going to side with the players before for even knew anything right so I actually let turned over. My story wasn't a column. I think it was a story. Larry Fleisher who proposed doing away with the entire entire NBA draft. Why do we need to draft right? And I'm like you know that makes that makes a lot of sense to me so I write this evolutionary even now much less and you know for several years I kind of win alone and you can kind of make an argument for it. You know. Sort of a free enterprise system right but I wrote the story and David Stern and get a call the next day from Secretary and I pick up the phone and like I said I probably met him three or four or five times and and I answered the phone and he said he gets on and he goes this harvey and I said yes and he goes. I'm going to educate to. I'm going to educate you you for a few minutes. You fucking idiot and we went from there you know. He was merciless but yet always I pulled it back just enough to make you know that you know there's a possibility of lack of actual relationship here. But that was my first recollection of my have of my first. I Real David Stern W up and renew phone call and we all got those. I considered it. I don't know what point I realized is. This was the badge of honor. But this is a badge of honor. And it's funny harvey when we just seeing all the twitter tributes reading everybody's calms the last twenty four hours and we all have as as journalists. Cover this league so much. The same story these very very similar stories of our relationships with David these kind of love hate push rush poll frienemie type relationships where he was both In some ways mentor and Educator especially for you and Ah David our little closer in age so for some of us who came up and he was already well established as the commissioner for a long time before I come into the League or others is that WHO's pieces of red. He's very much kind of almost father figure and besides that he's the keeper of of all the NBA's history and secrets secrets and everything. So he did he would take on this role of like I want to educate. It's funny that he's saying this to you who was basically his almost pure at that point of. He's still doing his job job. He's not even commissioner yet and and you're covering the league but like that's just who he was I guess from the beginning and it certainly is the experience that I had with him and we all yes at some point. Got f-bomb to desk us. I'm glad we can curse on my podcast because David Stern wouldn't have wanted it any other way than for us to say fuck a few times because it was certainly one of his favorite words I I do think that it was probably very different to work for David. I mean reading a lot of the posts today on facebook and twitter twitter from people like Terry Lions and who's part of the communication staff for many years You know saying things like you know you you you didn't arrive at the NBA. Until David Curse you out in for doing something or doing something wrong and our cases I think it was a different different dynamic because to certain extent we did hold some leverage in power. David was marketing his league and it was important Kim particularly in the early years. You know to get the kind of press that he wanted for the sport and the kind of coverage for the athletes. He was trying to sell. So I think to a certain to a certain extent that you know that pullback from the total annihilation that David was capable of was inevitable because he wanted to Always maintain that relationship I remember in one of the Ninety S lockouts. He had a press conference was an update In the middle of lockout and the Times who's had a sign just kind of out of the Blue Murray Chasse who was a chroma generally baseball writer writer and columnist to cover the NBA lockout and Murray was long known to be essentially an ally of the Baseball Writers Association Association. I mean practically slept with ball them going too far but with G.. Those guys I mean it was. He was clearly pro row union in just about everything he wrote and Murray had written a series of articles for the Times that were clearly anti-star anti league and supporting the players. And I remember I was talking to David but after the press conference and Joel Lipman one of the attorneys attorneys with standing nearby and David started to say something to me. That sounded like you know one of these. I'm going to tell you in confidence. You know what's really going on. And y'all grabbed him by the arm and said David David Wait. Wait wait and David turned around and looked at Joel and said this is not Murray. Hey this is harvey and implicit in that or not. So implicit was the notion that I'm on their side. Not that I'm always going to write it the way they want want. I'm one of the regulars. There was a real difference if you one of the regular news who covered that sport and he kind of understood because I I will say this. We all WANNA be impartial. You'll want to write what we think. But it's particularly in the early eighties. Through the the end of that decade as League began to push more and more higher and higher and out of that ditch that it was in you know in the late seventies that all of us who covered the league felt a real pride that we were part of something that was growing. That was something special and David Sense that in all of us I could name you know whether there is Bob Ryan Alien Verizon you know Jan Hubbard Jack McCallum. I think it was. I think he looked at us. Not Addis he's guys or his writer so we're going to. You know who are going to adhere to is disciplined. Alright well what he wanted to but ultimately that we were pro. NBA Hey we believed in the product and we loved it we love the sport and believe in it and that was the difference. I think some of that changed in the later years when he felt this. There was some people coming along. Who are sort of interlopers? Who didn't necessarily have the League's best interest at heart? You know it's interesting too because you're describing you know a- and a general atmosphere in terms of the media and the sports world in general that that I think maybe a lot of my listeners or a lot of fans today probably don't have a true understanding of just because it was a very different world back then basketball was a distant third at best and you know baseball was still the national pastime and football was already a Bima and the NBA. You know forget whether the teams that were possibly going to fold in in the early eighties. When David I took over as commissioner it just the sport as a whole just didn't have the foothold in the capture of the of the collective the public's imagination that it has today this sport is a global a phenomenon of its own and that wasn't the case back then so it was probably really important and earlier on for David to to be able to identify that right? That's a that those of you covered league on a regular basis. Did so because you believed in basketball and believe in the NBA is a sport that that it wasn't just this little niche sport in America that would forever be overshadowed by football and baseball that it was that it had its own distinct identity in promise and and could be on on equal footing with those sports. I mean today. We don't have that discussion that the NBA is here and it is huge and it is to be reckoned with maybe the predictions of overtaking the NFL were a little premature but the NBA. It's I think people today might take for granted not realizing ising how far it had to come and so I think probably did shape a lot of how David saw the coverage and why he was so protective of it and when you talk about or any of US talk about David Redeeming us out and dropping dropping f bombs and whatever else. It's not because it was ever personal and it's not because we had fucked up that badly. Although occasionally we might have. David was just very protective protective of an advocate fierce advocate for his league. And so that's why I didn't mind badge of honor thing is like I kind of understood where he was coming from after awhile now cinder understood that if I pushed back and held my ground and especially if I did have a solid ground extent.

Serena Williams, Martina And Kevin Blackstone discussed on Around the Horn

"What a win mean gene for Serena Williams Kevin Blackstone wow more accolades Serena Williams. I mean it's just unbelievable that she just continues to dominate her sport. Now at thirty seven years old will be the oldest woman ever to be in a major slam final s remarkable that she's come back from her pregnancy giving birth having a life threatening situation in terms of giving birth and not only that I think really really cool thing is we started out this tournament talking about cocoa golf who by the way talks about her her mentors or her her idols being Serena Williams and Venus Williams and the fact that she looked up to him and said that when she beat Venus that's the only time she's ever cried in a met so you're not gonna see her greatness but you also see early Greg I sold as it would say Wimbledon. Miss Williams is dominant. She's all the way back. She's made it to a vinyl since giving birth but she's she's is in better shape right now in today's match she she won all but three points off of her first serves. She's getting her per serving and if you're not getting yours in it is over because she's going to jump all over that this is dominant as she is looked in about five years. It's going to be very difficult to beat. What's amazing is after all this time? She's the greatest ever she's still the best women's player on the tour. That's what's remarkable. Bob Ryan with all due respect to Martina. I don't think there's much doubt any longer who is the women's Tennis S. and Franken Serena Williams. She is at such as level now going doing what she's doing and commanding attention that she's commanding for all of us that you're going to be. We're not we're getting real close to the following. What was the name sister? They were hers again. You know we're almost there and I mean she's setting yourself apart that that is an incredible statement. I just made but I'm standing on your steady gone so you think she's left Venus so far behind we can just let's not let's be Venus behind. She's hid has had an incredible incredible career but we're talking about Serena here Clinton Yates and specifically coming back after the pregnancy last year the life threatening condition during the pregnancy last year. She didn't get the winds in those finals last year. How important what is it for her to finish the deal this year I think is relatively important but I think what all this shows that she's doing this for one reason now reason that's important which is for her? I think for a black woman in a position she's been in a leadership when she's been in such a spotlight is also very very difficult for people to realize that this on the human individual. Let's not forget what happened in that final. She cried on the court in front of the world. It was something that was a very emotionally riveting moment

NBA Trade Deadline

"Yeah. Mine is twenty two hours to the deadline for trade. Everybody's moving further away from the product of the bench and the Sixers got themselves a five and the rafters might have Kyle Lowry situation. Also feast your eyes on the us new putter twenty four year old promotes drill. Yup. Let go. Best holders twenty four his by. Get all that tad or older than his TV. Let's start with Tobias Harris to Philadelphia. Sixers get it near all star LSD. It's two picks said Landry Wilson and a Mike. We haven't Israel with us is this a figure deal for the Sixers or clippers. Well, because the question demands an answer I'll say the Sixers, but if you look at the clippers situation, obviously with getting a lot of free agents of cap space here available and if they end up not making the playoffs get to hold onto that twenty nineteen draft pick of theirs. It's obviously for the future. But for the Sixers it's right now. And this is exactly what teams that are close want. Their teams to do you go all in and Elton brand clearly did that with Jimmy Butler trade. And now this one I still question whether they can be the obvious top team in the east you want you have more town than that starting five, but your depth is diminished. And I don't know how much more Tobias Harris can give you when you're running stuff for Embiid and Riddick and Simmons and Butler already. But if I'm the Sixers fan, again, you're already that committed you might as well, go all in Lynton Yates, also. Well, it's about is a forty plus percent three point shooter. So he can give you that. However, the issue is that he's on expiring contract. So of this isn't at the top, you know, if this doesn't move the Sixers to the top will then it's a bad gamble, which is why I think ultimately the clippers probably win this because they've got everything they've needed in this situation. We're coop. Recouping all those players and picks is what you have to do in order for the clippers to improve. That's not always easy to pull off and actually get value back in terms device harassed. But right now, I think is he's right. If the Sixers can make it to the finals, this is justified whether or not you bring devised backing up, Bob, ruin your view of it. For the record. They just picked up one of the best kept secrets in the league. Most people do not know how good Tobias Harris is or that. He's averaging twenty two game but shooting forty three percent from the floor. They do points. Now, they they chlorate yet. They're the winner right now because they are now assembled one of the three or four best starting fives in the league. They're going for it it being getting to the finals. I don't know the day of deluded themselves to think that this team will beat the warriors when they get there. But I don't think they certainly think they can now beat the raptors the bucks and the Celtics with this team, and they may very well be right. So it's all about now for them. And as far as the clippers concerns over conjecture, sarahspain you. Yeah. The temptation is to go with the burden. The hand is better than two in the Bush and say this is all about the Sixers because as Bob Ryan said they've got one of the best starting five now and talent wise there as believable as anybody in the east to get the number one seed and go to the finals that being said, it's actually a bigger deal for the clippers because we already had the Sixers as one of the best teams in the east and with the potential to. Compete the clippers have now established themselves and very clearly made the moves that are necessary to say, we are a destination for two max super free agents in this off season. And that's a big change from where they were before. And what we expect it out of them. So it's a bigger deal for Ellen. I want to address it in second. But real quick since Bob said Philly's got a top two or three starting five in the NBA.
