NBA Great Bill Russell Was Racist Till the End

"Bill Russell, the former NBA Hall of Famer. Now look, I imagine there are some people who are very sad to hear the news that the Boston Celtic great Bill Russell died on Sunday. Not me. Not me. I never liked the guy. And I had it on good authority and I have it on good authority that he was a racist until the end. I know what you're thinking. No, AJ, he was the one at the butt end of races. Okay, yeah, he was, but he did it right back to white people. Now aside from the rumors I heard from old sports Fridays that I used to work alongside of it newsday, which is Long Island's main newspaper and when I worked there, it was the fourth largest circulation of any newspaper in America, so it's no rinky dink paper. Major, major sports writers wrote there. I sat next to and talked to and sat around with some of the best sports writers of our time. And a couple of them told me some stories about Bill Russell that, you know, didn't paint them out to be a nice guy. Okay? They would tell me stories that said as much of what I'm telling you that he was in fact very racist.

Alan Dershowitz: The Jan. 6 Committee Is Not a Fair Committee

"Check out Alan Dershowitz, the famed law professor talking about the real impact of the January 6th select committee. Here he was yesterday with newsmax's Greta van susteren. Well, it's not a fair committee, obviously. It's like the Boston Celtics going to play the warriors and the NBA says only the Celtics can go on the field, not the warriors. One team on the field, not the other team. Nobody should pay attention to the conclusions of this kangaroo committee. Of course a committee can make a recommendation. So can you make the recommendation to Congress, but to the Justice Department, the adjustment won't follow it. President committed no crimes. His speech was constitutionally protected. Ill advised to be sure. But constitutionally protected. I put it in the same category as Chuck Schumer's speech, both ill advised, both constitutionally protected. You know, that's an interesting takeaway from professor Dershowitz. Chuck Schumer arguably incited a would be assassin to show up at Brett Kavanaugh's doorstep.

"Break. This can go home to his wife. Nobody loves him. Welcome to Celtic stuff live on the ceiling as media network the leading online provider of audio and video coverage for your Boston Celtics going to the Eastern Conference Finals against number one seated. The Miami Heat and we have revenge on the mines from the bubble baby from the bubble. So let's talk about how we got through this series because honestly, it felt like the fix was in from the beginning, John. And even at the beginning of game 7, when they were absolutely not going to call a charge on Giannis right out of the gate, I thought the Celtics did a great job of kind of testing those waters, but there was going to be no early foul trouble for the leagues, super baby. The new superstar, so the moment he got a 5th fowl or he was in foul trouble. It felt like he could do more harm. He could earn more fouls when he was in foul trouble. I don't understand. Look, he's a great player. And you're talking game 6 when you say that with the 5 fouls, right? Whatever. I'm talking everything. He could do whatever he wanted. Whenever he wanted, the rules did not apply to him. The ringer and these kind of supposedly neutral sources that are trying to talk about how well, you know, I just don't even know what a foul is. Hold on hold on. That's what it is. Thing you don't know what a foul is. Doesn't mean it's not a foul. Right. Well, who's creating the contacts? They're trying to have the conversation to say, well, there's inconsistency in how they're operating or it's not good. But instead of just saying you're letting one guy blow through the entire team or throw elbows left and right. And then call it on the other side. Call it for what it is. I realize people get criticized and say, oh, well, how can you criticize them? You're not a serious journalist or whatever. I think a serious journalist should say, hey, you know what? This is the fix is in. Yeah. As the title of our last show was, the Milwaukee screwjob, that was exactly what happened. We got screwed on multiple adhesions in this series. And so I don't miss not one game. Not one game though, throughout the series. Throughout every game. I actually don't even think this series is close if you call that accurately. But not because Giannis would have made the adjustment. He knew we could get away with that. But look what happened towards the later parts of game 7 when all of a sudden they weren't putting them on the line every time he went into some crazy move.

"I think this will be the worst performance we see from the Celtics in this series. I'm not saying that they win the series or that they don't win the series. I'm just saying, I don't think it'll ever be this ugly. And sometimes those games off, I know you just said it, but I don't want to spell it right out for everybody. 6 games off has always taken this team out of rhythm. They almost have to find their identity again. That's almost too much time. For the Celtics between playing really well, being on a string, and then going to this other direction. And the game plan was really just kicked their butts. I mean, just physically, they just got beat up. And sometimes that first game after 6 off, you're just not as hardened. And the ref definitely allowed it to be extra physical. So they definitely played in the hands of Milwaukee strategy and, well, you know the NBA, my friend. Stop foster. Yeah, we love having him around. And I tweeted about this. I felt like foster was almost like so pissed off that game four didn't go the way he wanted it to against Brooklyn. But he was like, oh, I'm going to get my way here. He won. It almost felt like, okay, well, screw you guys. But no, the physicality, I thought the fact that selfish could do pretty much, whatever they wanted to do against Brooklyn. Did not help them in preparing for going to get the team that wasn't going to give any inches. When it comes to trying to play against the Celtics in this round. So it prepared them in terms of the star power and it prepared them for the fact that you play this dynamic player, but I think it really served almost as a veteran here in game one did not prepare them to play against the champs..

Maybe you prove to be right by getting out ahead of it and look at it and go, we had to move Jalen not because he's not talented and him and Tatum get along off the floor definitely and they're coming along maybe on the floor. We'd like to think so. That's something that's something you have to look at big picture, too, I think, is like, because Tatum for the most part has been pretty good about staying healthy, not out long periods time. No, he plays Iron Man really. He's been he's an Iron Man. Tatum. Yeah. So I don't know. I mean, maybe that. Maybe all year before entering protocols. Yes. Maybe that's what leads to the frustration on the court and the why they can't figure it out. It's like they're still really young kids and he looks at it and goes, Tatum more specifically, I can't get into a rhythm with anybody. They tell me to pass more and then it's a new dude in and out of the lineup every night. Like maybe that's and he looks at it and goes Bradley Beal is not missing games in Washington and I think he did this a few games this year. Of course it gets hurt for the first time in his career this year. Maybe that's what it is. So that's something they have to think about. Take the talent, take talent out of it.

So what should the people know what the people to be excited about for this team for this roster for as it just again relates to all things Celtics fandom? From a big picture standpoint, one of the first things email doka said when he took the head coaching job with the Celtics was he, he does find some importance in the G league development. And that holds true with if you look at San Antonio and their roster, the spurs, there are some G league talents that did shine at that level and then took the next steps moving up. So there definitely is more being invested into the NBA G league. That's a great first step and then just from the actual basketball sends another quote from email don't go when he was introduced as head coach of the Boston Celtics. So you want to get those assists up. Well, jerel Christian, who was the first year head coach of the main Celtics, he used to be with the wizards G league affiliate, the capital city go go, something he's implemented here with the main Celtics is they want just they want to not only push the pace, but wants those assists to be up and going into the Las Vegas showcase, which took place last week. The main Celtics led the G league in assists. They led the league in offensive rating, led the league in scoring. So they were doing a lot of great things as it pertains to moving the basketball. They play a very fast brand of basketball. They had the best second best record in the G league going into the showcase at 9 and one. They split their series with Long Island. So it's an unselfish brand of basketball and I really don't say that with a smirk because that's what we're hoping for out of the parent club. It actually is a really fun brand of basketball. They're playing. They play in the small confines of the expo in Portland Maine. But it's a fun brand of basketball. They push the ball, they're unselfish. They're bigs can pass cornet has demonstrated that juwan Morgan, who is a player who played in the bubble as a playoff player in the Utah Denver series a couple of years ago.

A lot of people aren't able to get on a bed with these long-hauler symptoms. He's trying to play an NBA game and that's the kind of stuff when you're not traveling, you're not thinking about it as much as sign out front of your mind, the way, it the way it should be going back to the, like, the bread thing about done these bad defensive nights and Gallinari, making about 28 degrees at night in Atlanta.

"A code True by the NBA standard of how we judge coaches. Do you win more games than your supposed to had a very good eight year? Run? That went from outstanding to maybe one down to very good, right into in the last three years and you've replaced them with someone who has never done the job before in either spot. Of course you got concerned to be, you know, by the way, that's what they say. When Danny Ainge became general manager of the world's first time. What do they say? He's never done that before. He doesn't know what he's doing, he's just the coach. All right, so there's there are questions. There's uncertainty, there was a difficult season to get through last year's. It's all the stuff is. I think it's fair to ask questions and you wouldn't nobody you connected to the Boston. Celtics wants to be involved in a franchise where the expectations aren't super high and you get this criticism. This is part of being the Boston Celtics. I'm not going to name another team in a smaller Market or whatever that has no history of winning or something like that. But this is, this is part of the price that comes with, you know, we're in Boston Celtics on the front of your jersey or shirt or your polo shirt or on stenciled into your office, your business office. Yeah, I mean, look, nobody's going to be satisfied, right? I think, I think once the ball rolls out, we see what's going on. I think people will be little more calm than they currently are in. Elgon as, as we've all kind of, you know, talked about, we talk about even, you know, pre-show Twitter, is it always, this is a dumpster fire. But especially the past couple of days and I get like the, the appeal of the shiny new toy and stuff, it just it right now. Like financially doesn't make a lot of sense for Boston at all. And again, if if this is the plan so to speak, I understand it. Totally under totally get it. It's just a matter of, you know, following through on that next season. When, and, and my only my issue is I guess it seems like in again, as a content creator, so to speak. You know, the off season is way way more valuable than the actual season itself because we do our best numbers, you know, YouTube wise, downloads wise Etc. This time of year when there's so much news to react to. And there's, there's this guy moving here, like.

"I think he's a good fit in some spots. I just don't think it's here. Yeah, the souls do need veteran leadership Jack and that's something that I'm going to want to talk a lot about because I think that's a that's a big deal in terms of where the solvent sorry now the package they're going to have the package but they can get a lot of players. They could take a potentially package and it's not that big of a deal. They gotta make room cuz all these pics they can still have a plethora of Youth to develop that's you know mid to bottom tier but still belongs to an NBA roster and at the same time. Time combines them salaries and and do that. You know, the problem is a lot of questions out there about whether or not they trade Hayward too, so Yeah, yeah, that's true. That's very true. I think that's that's absolutely that's going to be something we're going to talk a lot about the next few days weeks months. I don't know. I'm not sure what the lender going to play again, but we know the draft of the month just about a month from now and so there's at least some certainty wage then, you know, hopefully between now and then we'll have an idea of when everything else is going to happen. But at least at the very least we'll have at least the draft and so that's that'll be off for a month, you know, and then you know, maybe we'll be able to figure out the rest of it. I mean the other piece is the Cantor piece to juror twice kind of reporting in the athletic that expect the cancer is going to try to go elsewhere as well. So in more localized news, I suppose that's probably the bigger story I guess is you know, the fact that 5 million dollars wage. And you know and I got impatient a damn right? I mean they gotta like work on that. Yeah, he's he's getting a max deal right now for sure. There's no question. There's no question often backed out and he's going to get Rose rule stuff. And so, you know, I think he's he's I can't imagine that goes any other way than that. I think it's really about the the other pieces and then I mean, let's just just throw out since we're talking all over the map here, right? If if they do come back in somewhere between Christmas and Martin Luther King Day, right? That's kind of a window they're talking about right now. Can you really see the Celtics making major systemic changes to their roster, you know taking away Gordon Hayward and trying to bring in life, you know you let's talk about the old Depot and and you know that deal, you know with with Indiana Myles Turner and Oladipo. I mean, is that okay?.

"He still thinks the Celtics are going to win this series and he also believes that same energy and effort was just fine and game for that that the players are wrong about what they said. Can I can I can I say what? Okay, so welcome. Thank you. I don't exactly think that they're wrong. Like I think to me it's a matter of focus and not energy. Can I give you some stats, please? Sure. I got stats. Okay. Well someone can be repaired to the show good. Yeah. So like against Toronto that you want to keep them out of transition. They're not a great offense unless they get out in transition and you want to make sure you're keeping them away from the rim, right? Like these are things that we would say are like obviously true. just want to give you so game three. We let them get out in transition 21% of their position. And in-game for that number goes down to 5% in game three thirty-eight percent of their shots were at The Rim that number is down to 23% in game four track. Basically, what we did to them in game four is make them take a ton of non Corner threes and they made a ton of them. And so like I think there's some stuff to look at Faith effort. I think like Toronto's ability to get offensive rebounds killed us in that game game four. And I think I think there's like maybe a lack of focus off in certain areas, but I think in terms of like of following the game plan that they're trying to follow I think they did a way better job in game four of forcing the shots. They want to force wage. They also the Celtics did a good job of getting to the rim a lot themselves. They were like really good at getting to the rim and in the mid-range. They just didn't make threes and I think home You know if this is a game where like where they make like three more 3-pointers out of 35 attempts, we're talking about like a close win and nobody's complaining about their efforts. So I just I don't know get a little frustrated when the conversation turns to effort. I think we mean like they blew some assignments because their heads are in the wrong place and I definitely have to clean that stuff up. But to me if they clean up the offensive rebounding thing that they're they're going to win. They're the better team something that we did not talk about wage scary just a billion other things that we hit on wouldn't have time for this one kept him long as it is guy was way too nice to us, but I try to catch a bus and go to Miami Heat game..

"I can't remember if I go back cord for it or router was they they have Jeff Teague at that point Jeff Teague was there and what's the guy played for Denver down, power forward Paul Millsap the bar & Carol. Yeah, like so that, you know, the team was loaded quote unquote, but they lost celebrate got sweat off his reputation of being this really great coach and what he's never said anything to the finals last year. They were up to all in Toronto. They lost four straight. So this is my song it on him. And I think that some of these things are so quick to hire who they think is the really smart guy. It may be booting Holzer is a team as a coach off. Maybe he's the Marty Schottenheimer of stuff. Maybe he's the Coltrane reference they can get you to the championship, you know the converse Championship dead. but not get you over the top and I think that is this is sticking to him because they had everything set they play they're playing a five seed and essentially they're getting their butts kicked in the same things that happened last year with The problem putting the wall against the Otis and defense and Giannis getting it froze happen this year and to me that's unacceptable. Sorry, that's totally unacceptable wage can't have not make adjustments. And then Chris Milton who looks like literally Michael Jordan gets the Celtics me off reduced to like just kind of a three-point shooter kind of like he's not carrying am either and you can't trust Bledsoe. So all the like once you're honest goes off all the other it's not one game with you pull the thing and the whole thing comes down ganga Bingo. Yeah. So like you pull Yiannis out and everything falls off. I mean last game thing. They're like literally depending on Brook Lopez, you know the care like, you know, I'm saying like when you don't have that like, I think really like Middleton..

"Let's start with the c as though personally. I imagine a lot of faith feel the same way. I'm not over the game three laws quite frankly. In fact game for doesn't sting nearly as much to me as game 3 does just because the way that thing ended and defensive lapses that happened there at the end and Thursdays will Mark a smart seem to be the only one that knew exactly what was going on and you know where Jaylen or ties or anyone else had to go in that moment to defend OG on on a newbie on a Novia who wage obviously wouldn't and hit that winning three-pointer, but you know, it happens but then the impact of game 3 on game for where the Celtics and I know they came out after the fact Kemba Walker Jayson Tatum guys talking about. Hey, we didn't play hard enough. We didn't play, you know as energetic as the other side. Did you wrote about the lack of Desire from the C's as well in that game and wage? You know, maybe it's semantics at a certain point to you know, some of these default cliches the players rely upon after a loss. I think what it just boils down to is obviously the Raptors were out better. It were better. They outplayed them. They you know, they played smarter than the Celtics did in that game how surprising was it to you at? The Celtics came out the way they didn't perform the way they did in the wake of game three. Well, I don't think that's as much like the way they came out. I thought they were okay, you know, I mean, I thought the first half was okay. I thought a big play. I mean there's this series in this this in the last two games a bit of Sears of little things that have added up to big things. Like I thought the end of first half or the Celtics had they had made a run shimmy head of three made a layup instruments for seven straight points and may were had the ball Up 3 and with the ball..

"That's I'm fighting. You obviously mentioned two thousand eight before I let you go. Is there an equivalent to obviously what ESPN? And the Bulls and everybody and it was very cool Adam silver when he was an executive at NBA. Entertainment is actually the one that green lit them having that behind the scenes documentary crew all the way back in the late nineties. That did this and obviously commissioner now is there. An equivalent You know kind of documentary that that could be featured the celtics that could be put together. Maybe it's a in years from now. It's based around the new big three era. Maybe it goes back and it's the the original big three era may be kind of already exists with the documentaries that NBC sports. Boston is put out over the last few years. Is What do you think is? Is there some time period that you think could be I duNno remembered and produced in the same way that this whole thing will be i. think the team in the new big three are certainly could be a wouldn't be on that scale, and the NBC Boston one eight I I think the only problem with documentaries. Anyone who's ever tried to do, we'll tell you that time goes by and the stories change a little bit, so the sooner it comes out after it happened. Maybe I don't say the less the less relevant it. It is, but it's it's hard within the context of you know short period of time to sort of tell all the tell all the stories. There are a lot of things it's impossible to do a perfect documentary because everyone is watching, it goes. Oh, but what about the time knows have? What about the time that this happened? And that? Oh Celtics documentary in Jim Aberdare on those guys. Put together this great, but could you could that have been four or five times longer. As someone who was yeah on those buses on those planes and Sat through the year the year before when? Now, I've always I've always sort of prepared for this interview. My whole life but All you need to know about two thousand, seven and two thousand eight for the Celtics, and the greatest one season turn around, maybe in the history of sports. Is that a two thousand seven? The Celtics starting off. Guard was Allan Ray. And a year later. It was right Allie. That's really all you need. Is that the poetry of that? What those two years were, and that the thing was over. You know you don't get the pick. And it was. It was done. It just really felt hopeless and I. Think maybe this is a good time to remember when things seem hopeless. They never they never truly are and something I've always said, and maybe it applies to all of our lives right now.

That example is people are if there's a drop dead date Adam I don't think that drop dead date for the season is until July. And it's the middle of April right now, and it's been five six weeks in this awful, but I don't believe we are halfway yet between when this started and what a quote unquote drop dead date would be. For this season. Let's say they resume. Let's be optimistic just because I think everyone needs a little bit of optimism, which team and obviously the Celtics are included in this. Which team do you think is most fitted by this? Break this layoff? Where everyone's in the same boat, you know injured guys are getting healthier. Nobody can train the same way Jason Tatum has talked about how he doesn't even have a hoop at his house. He picked up a basketball in a month. Which team has benefited the most by this? Which team is hurt the most by this well Lemay answer your optimism with pessimism. It's probably the sixers. Sort of restart and after the Celtics play, and what could be a very short first round, obviously I think taking to deep dive into this, and you could say well Lebron be rested. It's why says to great year this year because he barely played last year after playing thousands of minutes every few for so many years, Lebron's basically coming off a year off. Which is why he's been so good and it's been the second best player you know in the NBA this year I think that it's going to be wild I. Think the. The seating isn't going to matter. It's going to be a wide open tournament I think there are teams that probably talk about the teams that would be in few rights in the playoffs. Probably teams like Brooklyn that would be saying.

Right now I. Wish I had better news, but closing games has become a real problem for this Celtics team with nineteen games left in the regular season, and flailing hopes at landing the second seed in the Eastern Conference now three game deficit behind those raptors now to be fair, Jalen Brown he's out with a hamstring injury Gordon Hayward Jason, Tatum, they've missed some time. Kemba Walker as well. He's still clearly not right, so the sees far from. From being one hundred percent overall, but these are still games. You need to win when you jump out. Those huge leads like I talked about Marcus Smart. His foul on carousel averted the regulation. The Nets lost just inexcusable, and then the thunder game most recently last night, and I was in the building for this just given away when Kemba Dennis Schroder to take that ball to strip. It away delivers the go ahead, layup and Walker all you. You had to do all he had to do was hold the ball and way to fouled. That's it so pair of just really really immensely frustrating losses and well. Let's hear Brad. Stevens Marcus Smart Kemba Walker Gordon Hayward all trying to cheer us up just a little bit. You can feel like you're on top of the world one week, and you can feel like the sky's falling the next, and that's the hardest part about the NBA. The way it goes, you know we're in a way right now.
