"Welcome back to the show. Joining me now on the first advantage hotline, Chris Dempsey of altitude. TV. Chris. What A, what an interesting game last night the nuggets. So short handed they, they were becoming more shorthanded as the game went on with the joker, not playing that fourth, but somehow they find a way there in the they got a three point lead with a few minutes left ultimately lose by ten, but man does it certainly looks like the future's really bright for the nuggets. Yeah. Yeah. You Know I. Think One of the best qualities about the basketball team that. You know they don't necessarily worry about who is who's dressed in his not dressed who's playing tonight and are not. You know they go out. With the same singular focus, which is to win a basketball game and you know listen I. I think it's it's pretty apparent to me, I. Think. They would've won that game. Had you know Yokich? In Monte? Morris? Been in the fourth quarter in that game But it's supposed to show you what they can do and just Kinda the firepower they have obviously Michael. Porter, Jr. has been wiped out, and you know. So you add that with some other really nice pieces and Bo Bo's getting in and contributing as well, and and you know you get a game into space where you know Portland needed that game really badly. They lost that game. They lost that game. It would have been well, I, think they would have been behind the Phoenix Suns in terms of that being in that nightspot. So Yeah. You know there's a lot of good players. It's a coaching staff that instills a lot of confidence and no excuses into them as well. You know the coaches could go in and say, well, listen, let's just give give it what we got and get Outta here. You know that's not how they operate they. They really do operate with winning in mind all the time and and the nuggets certainly do play that way. Are the. Blazers becoming a one of the bigger rival rivalry games. Now for the nuggets obviously mellows there. But the thing you Bulbul and the poster last night and he was he had a little extra pop there. Are they becoming like the enemy now among most teams for the nuggets? I think if if nuggets Sierra. Hold Nuggets fans. I mean I, I, would. I would I would guess it would be them because not only do you see them four times a year and division games, but the negative now seen them in in a playoff series and you know, and in that playoff series, obviously, they lost game seven at home to them, and so you know you have a lot of little instant I. The first thing I think you need to have is a lot of games against it. It. You know one particular team, and we're starting to get a lot of games against the Portland. Trailblazers, especially, as we know them right Damian, Lillard and CJ mccollum and and now Merkich, and you know America's first gets there. You know he way. You know you waves goodbye since summer. So you know you start with that You get into whatever other Shenanigans you get playoff series, and now I think, yeah. You know you have to look at the Portland Trailblazers as. So, by far, the closest thing that the nuggets have to an arrival in the NBA. Chris. Thought, it was interesting. You were talking to coach Malone after the game and coach talking and and MPG really talking about that defense emphasizing defense I thought it was kind of interesting because on the other side, the guy guarding MPG for the first part of that game was Carmelo Anthony in, do you think that's like in the back? Malone. Noses. History he knows nuggets, histories that in the back of his mind was thinking, I don't want to have another Carmelo Anthony Anthony was amazing grace score. But I. Want I want to have a complete player I. Want 'em PJ to really take that defensive side series i. thought that was kind of ironic last night. Yeah. In for you know Michael Malone, you know no matter how many times he ever says appraises the offense like a decent i. And and Okay and think about where we came in with Michael Porter Jr. this this season, you know the time that he was pulled off the court or did not play Games was largely because Mike Malone was not happy with his defense. It has almost nothing to do with it often and so You know. He. He wants Michael Porter Jr. I. think There's a couple of forces at work one. You know Michael. Porter. Jr.. Is hearing it hearing all the praise from everybody now, all the time starting to get national attention as well for what he's been doing offensively for the nuggets and. Coach, and it's like, okay, that's cool. But slowdown young Fella. You're not there yet. You know this is, let me give you the list of five things that you need to do to get better and on top of that list obviously is. And you when you play for Michael Bologna at better, play it or you know as as Michael Porter Jr. well knows You could find that your time is limited because of that. So I think. Michael. Puerto wants to be a better defensive player. He's like he's not unlike any clear. That's come up as a as a big time score, and that is you pay attention to that more than anything else, and usually when you're in high school into college, you could just outscore the guy who in front of you again. So. Defense by office, you know so I for him I, it's going to be. They have to continually work on his mind set on that end, and then for him Michael, porter is just continuing continuing to stay dial then and to stay active on that end of the court, and that's all that Mike, Malone is really asking for is asking for him to be the glove. He's asking for him to to be aware and to be energized on that end and if he's going to do those two things Michael Puerto will get all the minutes. He wants on the basketball court I know defensively to as a team, not just MPG. They were struggling. They were struggling with that three point defense. I. Think Malaria Malone mentioned it. You guys kind of forgot who Damian Lillard at one point shooting a eighteen three pointers getting eleven of them. That was tough. I. Mean The blazers were finding ways to almost kind of split those defenders up and maybe no malone had mentioned the kind of the over over helping side of things too. So there were times where certainly the nuggets looked out of place and I suppose that's what you see with a lot of young guys that aren't typically involved in the same getting the same minutes and working together. I. Think a little took full advantage of all players on the court. I mean, there were times where he called for the screen to isolate himself on Michael Puerto. Junior to be able to take him But there were a number of instances. You gave me a Lillard is the maybe the craftiest of the mall. So if you if you you know in in the screen roll situations if. If you're not, if you hedging kind of tight, he can still dribble. He's quick enough to dribble around the hedge, and so he can get himself into the lane. Anyway. If you. If you take that hedge out a little bit wider, you saw a couple of times. He just splits them. splits. The defenders goes right in between and then There was one, he hit a three pointer visits so. He makes you really think about how you're playing defensively. I, think yesterday was a you know the negative been pretty, pretty good against him generally this season, and that's where you need to Gary Harris. Be? You know a, he already knows all the tricks. You know. He knows how wh- the plant is how they're going to contain them and so I thought in terms of Damian. Lillard. Yesterday, you missed Gary Harris a whole heck of a lot because now you have a guy that is already well versed on how to guard this player and it is it is strong enough and quick enough, and it's got enough conditioning to be able to stay with him for an entire game..

"Obviously you can check out my fan page or sports on facebook as well. Let's just keep it rolling. What about Brooklyn Man? They they seem to be better without Kyrie in the lineup. Is that crazier what. Listen every team is better without parodies. I'm sorry to say but I think that we had not a Brooklyn play Brooklyn Ball like Boston. We say Brooklyn be really dominant. And when you don't have someone who is really all about themselves you are a better team you know. Take out two pieces attitude pieces and you're GonNa see Brooklyn you know really push. The question is is Heidari. Ready Return to a team. That doesn't even good question. I mean that's a great question. And ultimately man we know how ball dominant hiree is and we know how great of a handle he has We're not questioning. His ability will questioning his ability to be a leader. I think that that's what both of us are doing. Join if I'm not mistaken marquette. Hey let let the western conference a little bit Denver. Nuggets are now on the second spot. They've been playing a little bit better. Eight and two in their last. Ten Games aims. The clippers are in the third spot. We talked about the rockets. A little bit of Dallas. Mavericks are a little bit of a surprise. And how good do you think. Luca Danni launch can be probably be the second best player next to John's man. I love his game I really was onto. It is kid before the and I watch them. Progress on watching better. Yeah having that leadership having that sense of urgency because he no we have to with now we have. We have the clippers and then we have everyone else so in order for us to compete. We really have to put the ball and do the dodgers hand. You don't and I love I love. What about the Portland Trailblazers? You and I probably are not big fans of Carmelo Anthony Anthony. We do have a buddy. That absolutely loves them. Our Buddy trae Larkin's he. He loves Carmelo Anthony but Portland obviously on the outside looking in right now they have won three straight. I expect them to make a huge move to be honest with you. When they're big guy gets back and they have all the pieces and I do not expect them to miss the playoffs? For how do you feel about Carmelo. And the addition. And what does he bring to Portland if he brings anything to Portland. Well southbound workers G. He's a huge huge Portland Fan and I don't think really Carmel. Bring anything at this time. I feel that Carmelo was kind of You know a guest sin so to speak. But he's not to get that the Portland Trailblazers need at this time. I think that Carmelo is playing with a sense of urgency. Because he knows it's now or never. I really don't feel that Portland was the right fit for him. At this point I mean he could have went back to the Knicks. Even could have joined the debt but Portland. That's not the wing that they really need it but more power to him and I hope they.

"Any leads the raptors to the title Mitch He's completely altered the way we looked at him because what we would've looked had him as a couple of years ago is an extremely talented player yes he had been the MVP of the finals but he was in that list of really good players in the NBA yea we look at him completely differently now I think the reason for that is he's not playing with pop and he's not in San Antonio Anymore and I don't say that as a negative negative way pop is one of the Great Coaches at Coaching Team Basketball and he knew what he had and Kawhi Leonard and when Leonard became the MVP of the finals in two thousand fourteen when they won he knew enough to let him lead but leading on the San Antonio Spurs especially with the other talented that they had was still not taking over the San Antonio Spurs you know what I mean yeah he led but he did not take them over when he went to Toronto first of all he had had that one year almost a whole year's worth of injury where he sat and stewed and quietly whatever the hell was going through Leonard's head he was plotting his revenge and when he got to Toronto it wasn't San Antonio anymore it was with a new coach and he was clearly the star talent on that team team and what we have seen the transformation that you're alluding to is that he can be the man on the team as well as being the leader on a pop coached which team team and now he's come into his own as a singular superstar we'll see when Paul George gets there if he that's why he's so that's why I picked to Mike because he's got the ability he was trained in a really good system he's got the ability to be that team guy and still lead because he's he's done years of it in San Antonio and he's got the ability to just be the takeover guy because he's done that in Toronto so it's rare that you find a guy who's comfortable in in in both of those most Carmelo Anthony Anthony is a perfect example that never got used to having to be a complimentary player and so he's remarkable and you know I I mean that's going to be a fascinating anything to watch out there in L. A. Hall you think that's all fine and here's the thing when you look why I will never say a anyone in the sport is a better teammate that Lebron because again we talked about this all the time he comes out of high school into the pros and he brings with him him impeccable basketball values which you had a front row seat to when he was just a baby with the cavaliers and they upset a great great and I made a great pistons team that year so so I'll just say this is good teammate as he is he is a consummate summit professional he plays both ends of the court he is absolutely in his prime and staple center is going to be an extremely pumped before we move on let's just talk briefly about two teams in the Eastern Conference one is the only unbeaten team sport the sixers is it finally their time and and I've been saying Mitch I've been saying this since before the season I think the heat because of Jimmy Butler and because they have a great coach down there are ready ready to make a move and there's they thumped the rockets last night I mean the rockets already people are going to start getting hysterical about them the heat a really good yeah well to the seventy sixers I remember they've won a couple of games already without Joel Embiid Yep that's pretty that's pretty impressive we all knew that they were you know they got a great lineup one Horford went there I like Al Horford anywhere you know I'd Yeah Horford makes your team a better team and he's what they were missing thing that collection of Solo artists you know he how he's going to help make them a band and I think it's not an apparition rishion that they are five and if embiid continues to you know doesn't get thrown out of games and it doesn't fight with guys I think going to be a very impressive and I think they're going to be right there I knew as soon as as soon as Jimmy Butler went to the heat they were going to get better you know but they've got some great young players there as well and I don't know if they're gonna you're not going to be five and one to sustain that I think they're they're in their playoff team apps interesting eastern conference because I don't think the raptors are GonNa go away I think the Celtics Mitch are a classic example couple of addition by subtraction they're just it's like a cloud has disappeared from the landscape in Boston because Kyrie Irving is gone and and Kimball Walker for people who haven't watched him play in the pros and I've been watching this kid since high school okay joy Kemba Walker because he is one of the great basketball stories a kid who came off the bench in high school in the Bronx to finally play himself into a Max contract and he and Hayward and Jason Tatum eight a Mitch they are playing great together right now yep Yep I'll good all right quickly before we get out of here and do the parting shots tomorrow the long awaited aided the long awaited day for college football I got a layoff standings the the committee will meet and they they will determine a WHO's going to beware to me this is already kind of done there's only a handful of teams who really deserves service somebody's GonNa get shut out you know somebody's going to be a boxed out here but we kind of know already who's really doc worth it and who isn't Lsu's going to play Alabama that's going to kind of take care of itself so so we're going to know that in my mind right now Mike Ohio how states the best team in the country already I watched all their games they are ridiculously dominant what what they've done when they have been challenged still Wisconsin and some of those other things is just nuts and they are playing in my view they're playing tougher teams than than Alabama has played I don't oh no how Alabama gets to be a a touchdown favourite over LSU that that seems strong to me Clemson to me is ripe to be picked. I I know what what their record is but they they skated on a few games that they probably could've lost and I wouldn't be surprised if somebody somebody passes them although it's going to be hard because their record you know they're they're passing they're not going to get past these rankings top for they're gonNa uh-huh well what happens here here's a couple of tough situations what happens if Penn State Beats Ohio state I was going to end November twenty third at Ohio State and Mitch put me down as having no idea how good Penn State is Ohio state I know how good they are and I agree with you off often the season that we have watched I believe they're the Best College football team in America even though I don't think they're going to be voted number one in the first mate do I think I think it's probably going to be Lsu but I you know I don't know the I mean the committee is is funny that way and and I always enjoy the first time they come up because I like seeing the difference between what the A P and coaches poll does but but let's face it Mike W- LSU Alabama one of those two is going to have a loss and then Ohio state or Penn state one of those two is going to have a loss Georgia's got a loss but they're coming on obviously they had they had a big win over the weekend and Oklahoma's gotta loss but you know it's hard to argue that they're not a great eighteen so what's what I don't WanNa see happen but it's probably going to happen is Clemson is going to be undefeated because they don't play anybody and they they end up being being number one ranked and I don't think they're the best team in the country and teams that are going to have one loss could end up you know out of it because of that loss laws but they play tougher teams to me this is a six sixteen thing right now and and after that you might as well forget it and those six are are in the top up six there right now without Ghulam on the outside they are Lsu Alabama Ohio State Clemson Penn State Georgia or Oregon's on the hour which is Utah is not gonNa make a move and how about poor Georgia I mean are they are they going to be the kids once again with their nose pressed us to the window and when it's all said and done in December because that I watched a lot of Georgia Florida on Saturday that was an extremely really impressive win and Mitch we you know we there's other quarterbacks to talk about Jake Fromm is still playing jake from is still playing and of all the one loss teams l. either LSU or Alabama's about to join them do not think that Georgia is clearly the most formidable of the one mosser's.

"You know <hes>. I kinda like it. If the if the main players involved in this or the ones advocating they're also the ones who have to be accountable so like like when pe- when we ask about russell westbrook and james harden. I'm like you know that might work because it was russell westbrook james harden who made this happen so it's kinda like their butts on the line right like like the same thing davis and and dwight howard like you're the one who said okay to this. It's not like the team did and said what do you think it's like. You're the one who vouched for him and so if they're willing to stick their necks out for carmelo and okay we want this guy. We think he's gonna be all right like that's good and i think like if you kevin durant carmelo from what i i i i can't like trace their are there connection but i i think they're they have like a a pretty long history because ed from the same part of from they grew up in the same area and <hes> and i think they really i think they know each other and they have a connection until like that's not just like a random aside because they know each other in the league. I guess they have some history and they feel pretty comfortable with each other yeah and team u._s._a. They've been involved with team yeah so there's some of that and look i. I just think that you know we're on the stephen. Smith show here and ramona shelburne joining us george sodano stephen today. You know i have never seen a guy who is a hall of famer like that. I know we were just talking about dwight but it dwight got a chance at least like i'd never seen a guy sit there and basically begged for an opportunity. The way mellow has had to beg and i with him look. I don't think that carmelo anthony anthony is a guy that can be playing thirty minutes a night by any stretch of the imagination because the numbers of dictated that last year no casey wasn't good and certainly surely the ten games sample with houston wasn't good but to sit here and say he can't be one of the top foreign fifty players in the n._b._a..

"It's fairly obvious it's just that he's willing to be a role player for for and he's been that for a long time because remember joe johnson one point was the highest paid player in the n._b._a. Contract and for years he's understood his role and it took carmelo carmelo basically up until he did an interview stephen a few months ago for that to really come to light. You know a guy that was not a high point the career for sure well. What about at this. If mellow went fulda white howard went i hit rock but no no seriously like publicly. I've had any kind of did that on stephen casino mellows magnitude or resume have to go out. I maria yeah for anything didn't trump george. If anything i think i think sodano donald hit hard i think he's right in the fact that carmelo's never indicated he'd be willing to accept a job as a role player. Does he have to black and white. Come out and say that like dwight did and say look. I know my career is over. I will come off the bench. I will play fifteen minutes a game. He didn't go that far with even a he's. He simply said i can be one of the four hundred and fifty players in the league <hes> which which i think g._m.'s heard that and went he'd still doesn't get it he. He thinks he's better. We have interpreted that mcadoo. You're a contender and you want and you you bring him in the understanding you no longer a focal point but you're going to get eighteen to twenty minutes a night shore. I'd bring him in couldn't he. Come into the warriors play the shaun livingston role. I would think so yeah. I doesn't handle that you. I don't think you could but you're saying just in general skill set is as dynamic as shaun. Livingston's was the third act of their career. Should i do a little bit of everything well basically though was throwing the ball have him shoot a fadeaway jumper from twelve fifteen hundred car going going that no range game dog sorry about the handle hey does not. They're still have handled three for years. Combo guards defend defend carmelo can defend anyone. I think the best fit for mellow mellow if it if it does work out for him is important. I look josh in for them. If carmelo anthony lebron james wanted okay carmelo anthony anthony would be on this team. Royce white is right about that if now he shouldn't have taken a shot of jared dudley because jared dudley deserves to be on this team for the reasons we outlined earlier about joe johnson right you understands understands his role in a team and you need guys like jared dudley so it's not mean disparaging jared dudley in this particular case but if if lebron wanted melo melo would be on the lakers right now all right <hes> there's an epidemic in baseball where two nights ago justin turner strikes out goes to talk to the empire are they. They collide. It looked like incidental. Contact me the empire fazzar report. Justin turner get suspended for a game for bumping. An umpire. Turner says the empire bumped him last night. Justin verlander is pitching a shutout. It's nine to nothing. Verlander is eleven strikeouts. He throws a pitch that he thinks his strike three. The next pitch gets hit for a double into the gap. He turns his back to the empire into something. I should've been out of the inning. The last pitch was a strike but it doesn't show them up turns back the empire. The empire throws them out. Here's ver- lander after the game as an empire. I i think pattni's understand that this social game. I mean sometimes when things don't go your way let the empire note.

"They won't play at all greens leon belle plaine. I'm all four. I mean look if you get on bell gets hurt in a preseason game. You have to find find someone else to host the show because we did stephen a smith at the ball the n._f._l. Teams and players show you how much you mean thank. The cardinals drafted number one to kyla. Maria five nine quarterback in the first thing they tell us is wait till we want right. So what does that terrible absolutely. They're not making it a priority so why should we. I think it'd be two games eventually had a regular season. Be eighteen games and make sure they take care of the plans for the extra. That's the other. The question is do they add to the regular season because these games there. They have value even if they don't mean any. I think they add to the postseason. Another round the playoffs more t._v. dollars so i think you shift a preseason game or to jail dimension playoffs. I wanted to bring up here and this is really wanted to make sure jalen was with us because of some comments that were made by former n._b._a. First round pick white the had very strong words about the roster construction of the los angeles lakers and basically said carmelo anthony. Anthony isn't on the team because he's being blackballed. He lays the blame on one man in these comments. I wanted to hear them. Mellows absolutely being blackballed. He's one of the real in it. He's one of those dues that you know he ain't like me. You don't talk like brash and and straightforward like that but he has those morals and principles you know in another question is while a guy like the brown is walking around here like he's the facing the players. How is he lent his banana boat brother. Hang out there in the wings and go signed jared dudley and not carmelo if anybody watching this thinks that jared dudley can ho carmelo's jockstrap. I slapped him so obviously eight somewhat inflammatory comments there so let me turn to you put the ninety seconds on the clock and go. Do you believe carmelo. Anthony is being blackballed the n._b._a. Yes i do because their four hundred and fifty people getting played to play the sport this year i would say even if you didn't like his game because it's mid range inch base and felt like he didn't fit because still have a roster spot between eleven and fifteen. If you have that opportunity lets me know that they are not having him in the league not just because of this play. Here's the thing the word blackballed has a very significant and sinister connotation. I don't think you tell me if i'm wrong. I think people don't wanna bring him in there because it'd be unusual to put a player of his stature into the role that he would now and that seems like it'd be a strange loop. I don't think blackballing because i think he's a bad guy. Black wall comes from the fact that they're four hundred and fifty job to thirty n._b._a. Teams he deserves to be on a roster same. What colin kaepernick saying we're lamar jackson as a head coach. That's what it means. They should have a job but he doesn't think i just couldn't get past the fact that this new thing lebron got us right now to get carmelo on a team that that's the biggest misnomer lavar lincoln get. Somebody assigned to basketball team. These people ain't going they. They're not going into their front office saying hey. Let's get lebron to come in to see what guys you want to bring on his roster like that. We just talked about with the cleveland..

"The agent they ended up getting Anthony Davis but he probably thought they'd get another free agent at some point then they can compete for titles if he wasn't about winning anymore. Why why in the world would he essentially ruined the locker room this year by making such a stink about getting Anthony Davis so I do think uh now I think he has other interests that is out there later as a family business and stuff too but I do think he's still wants to win? Chris didn't say Dan and has a say he doesn't want to win like you're taking it a step that it doesn't say he said whereas any evidence that he's not an aunt not he's dead he committed to when he was in Cleveland. They didn't practice anymore here again. I but he didn't know you could we're not we're not they did not practice that was part of the culture problem. That's what made it unsustainable. That's what may make adjustment player again. I'm not arguing about that and a lot of guys Gino practice. He didn't behold on he didn't not the whole year. He didn't say he didn't WanNa win he. He said he wasn't the same animal about winning right. He said he didn't like the culture he didn't. I'm sure he didn't like doing all those deals with Tristan Thompson J._R. Smith that they were pressured to do because is there rep by rich Paul like he didn't in no way did he indict Lebron James The player or Lebron James the competitor. He decides not done really in the animal. I animal as far as women anymore the same four years is he gonNa play after twenty sixteen. He might play seven more years after you know dating back to two thousand sixteen six years whatever none of them he was really trying to win anymore not not at the same level. He doesn't play defense at the same level. He doesn't have the same level. CLENCH is none of that because of age I maybe but but it's the amount of effort you put into it. Let's let's shift really quickly to come Anthony who just went on T._v. and said Hey Chris Paul City had nothing to do with it but Daryl Morey walked in ten games in and said Ed your services are no longer needed. He claims to not have a problem now with coming off. The bench thinks he belongs in the N._B._A.. What's your takeaway from Carmelo? Anthony well look I will agree with this. I think mellow is better than sixty seventy percent of the players in the N._B._A.. N._B._A.. There's no question he's good enough to play in the N._B._A.. The question and the problem is where does he fit a young team that is going nowhere. Her wants to develop its young players and see who's a keeper see who they can build around. They don't WanNa give fifteen shots. You know thirty minutes to Carmelo Anthony Anthony. They need to see what their young guys can do a challenger contender you know how do they fit Carmelo Anthony into their system. You know it's easy to fit a role role player in then a ball dominant former star who is gonNA WANNA play a certain way and get a certain amount of minutes and shots what's so I can only look at a couple a handful of teams that he might fit and I don't have evidence that any of them want him. I don't think he's getting back in the League but a Miami Detroit a Washington Charlotte you know teams that aren't at the bottom aren't fully young players but certainly Ardley aren't sputtering. They're not going anywhere. You know. It's amazing. I think a Carmelo Anthony maybe could go there but it's just I said a year ago on on this show the heard they Carmelo Anthony should retire because this I hate to see a guy that I consider a.
"carmelo anthony anthony" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"As a basketball player as a professional athlete he has been humbled and now he's trying to get one more chance to win a championship championship and he had to go to you. That's your T._v.. And it felt like to me stephen literally begging for a job in the N._B._A.. Well I will tell you that I think that there's a strong level of liberty the argument about him having the hit rock bottom the only reason why I don't WanNa go full throttle and say that's simply it is because he's specifically said have a man to man conversation would be telling me somebody who's had a man to man compensation be asked me to make adjustments capitulate officially and I didn't do it. He said that didn't happen. Houston never talked to me okay see. We're really told me I was going to be the guy it was gonna be Russell Westbrook. You'll be Paul George. It's GONNA be saving at us and then they told me that I wished that situation would have worked out. It did it but I didn't point figures in no direction because Billy Donovan had a man to man compensation and made it very very unclear what he was looking for then never happened with Mike and Tony then never happened with their Maury and if that didn't happen and I was led to believe that the same people that have been pursuing being here and fast wanted me and finally got me he said you could call me making assumptions or whatever but I believe that I was led to believe that there were certain situations that we're going to take take place and they did not take place having said all of that when we talk about him coming on television and practically begging or whatever I'm not GonNa classified as that about the game because he's not the Kinda guy that wants to be someplace where he's not wanted. I think what was most important to him is to say if you don't want me. Let this be the reason because you don't think I'm good enough to beat that role. Play whatever don't let it be because people are telling you I feel someway and you did not hear it for me. I have not spoken since November. I I have not talked to anybody about this subject. Matter I went down under I kept quiet because I was looking my wounds and had to overcome some of my doldrums but make no mistake about it. I still love the game. It's still think I can play this game and I wanted to accept the relegated role coming off the bench in order to do it if you don't want want that fun but don't let it be the politics of somebody telling you. This is what I feel. This is what I believe and I'm GONNA BE A head case the problem for your franchise <hes> when you haven't talked to me because that's not how I feel and that's not the kind of Man I am. That's what I took from him and the mellow that I know I do believe he's as a man of his word. I believe he wants to play relegated row. Leave the he's somebody that believes that he's done and he's finishing. He can't play and he can't make a nine member. Ah rotation absolutely not but I do believe Michael Leaves. I do believe that if you talk to Carmelo Anthony Face to face and you told him this is the role you will play if you come on my teeth and he told you I will accept that. I believe he would do that with no problems because Oh cute very very big on keeping his work Stephen a Smith on the Stephen a Smith show the reason that's even is not here is because of course he just interviewed an exclusive interview with Carmelo Anthony Anthony. I do have to ask you Stephen. A at the point of this interview for Mellow was to change the narrative and speak out on behalf of how he feels. How do you think he did if any N._B._A.?

"And solar told me back in just a second. So I want to wait to do this thing with him. But. Quipped quick observations on last night. Which again, there's eighty two games in a season. So I'm not going to overreact to anything that we saw last night. But certainly as I was flipping channels when I got home. It was checking on all these games. And by the way. The. NBA package is free. I think it's the first week seeing watch all the games. It's pretty cool. Rockets gave up free package. Pockets gave up one hundred and thirty one nor Orleans last night. And look look, really good. I think Anthony Davis is the best player in the NBA had thirty two points, sixteen rebounds, eight assists. But two things come to mind number one Houston gave up one hundred and thirty one points. And we talked all about the off season the loss of. Especially Trevor REEs, lots of defensive guys they add Carmelo Anthony Anthony after the game admitted that it's gonna take a while for him to adjust to a bench role, which he should've had last year. No KC, but didn't want to accept you went three for ten for nine point six. He's not going to give you any defense so number. That's number one. Watch the sons in maverick's a little bit the number one pick the Andre eight. And he is a he is he's not a guy that wants to stand in the perimeter. Now, maybe he'll turn into DeMarcus cousins and decide that he wants to shoot three pointers more than he wants to be down low on the block. But he's got a ton of moves down there. And I'm not saying the sons are going to be good but eight and kicking it into eight and who then kicks it out to Devon Booker who ended up with thirty five last night. If they get other guys around them who can play at eight and kid is the most skilled big man to come into the league in a long time. And I'm just talking about a guy who will actually go down into the paint create havoc down there kick it back out to Booker. That guy's gotta be love in his life right now. Yeah. Aden's stunned love watching. Really good. Yeah. You look good. Look at you watching like NBA, I was flipping everything I won't leave me all last the other thing I was talking about was rockets gave up one thirty one last night. And Anthony Davis was awesome. Thirty two points, sixteen boards, eight assists, the best player in basketball. But from the rockets perspective, they give up one thirty one. We're talking about the defense they lost. And then Carmelo Anthony goes in the locker after shooting three for ten nine points at admitted it's gonna take a while for him to learn to come off the bench. Now, look we got a long way to go. This is the opening week of the season. But what we talked about about Houston came true at least on opening night for them. They've got one thirty one. Now, New Orleans is going to be better than people think. Julius Randle scored twenty five thousand that. He looked good. Anthony Davis is really good merited scored thirty. They they looked really good. You got a holiday on that team. They lost DeMarcus cousins. But remember they played better. When cousins is out and the added mirror teach to the squad, really, really good. But you lost those two defenders you gave up. Thirty one. Good. No. I mean, look, that's what the pelicans. Do. They go gentry's a go go go coach where they're just going to run it. And they're going to try to get one Twenty-one twenty-five. They are they're very uptempo. Gotta watch much last night. They recorded the baseball games. I watched that. Until like, I forget what time it was. I went to bed. I wasn't complaining about it though. But I I. I'm I'm kind of. To watch the the words and jazzy Marlene for game two. It's just weird the season starts so early. Now, it's like damn it's basketball season. Already a member of a hard time getting geared up for by the way today is equinox. I just saw this on Twitter NFL tonight NHL tonight NBA tonight, major league baseball tonight college football tonight MLS tonight. Wow. All tonight. Jeez. Oh that get everything you can bet on seven different sports. You wanted to seventeen parlay one from every sport. Wow. I didn't even realize the egg is everything is going on tonight. Good for me. If I were to prioritize tonight. In terms of watching a guy guy couldn't watch. And if you had a better Thursday night NFL game, it might challenge you. But that thinks oh that's down the list because tonight, it's going to be baseball. I probably Stanford issues. Second. And. Because you have a double vested. Yeah. Eating ASU S. Yeah. Maybe Lakers third one. Lebron looks like against the the blazers. I probably did that to the NFL. I just did that they came to the whole. You know, what that tonight's game is tonight's game would slit in nicely with last year. Schedule on Thursday night. This is like a two thousand seventeen Thursday night game or you look at any go. Oh, no, no. No, no. I'm not watching that. So I probably why why won't even I won't even watch that game. I want even click on that game holds no interest for me whatsoever. And the sad part that game will probably get better ratings Red Sox Astros, and it's only because fantasy football embedding. A what was it anybody? No, I I mean, not that I care about ratings that much, but I was curious. What were the ratings? Sunday night in Boston. Patriots won. They beat the Red Sox. The patriots. Did they really I saw the numbers? It was it was by. I think the patriots thirty share. But how Red Sox had like twenty five though, it was close. But the patriots won everyone will always win at. I know they do but that side. The Red Sox are obviously a pretty big deal in Boston. I thought it was ever a chance of baseball would beat football like in a given city. It would be Boston Red Sox play apparently. No. But I mean that was a hell of a game. The New England Kansas City that has a great a hell of a Ray game. Absolutely. Like, but I mean, it's funny because I guess if you're a football fan, you're going to be watch football. I love all the sports so playoffs. Always come first. Because it is better games. I mean, you get better teams better games. And there's something on the line. Can you imagine if you were in a sports fan in Boston on Sunday night? You could've done anything you want. It would have been ghost town people either. Watching the Red Sox of the patriots. Oh, yeah. If you wanted to go. Absolutely. Dr. The whole city. No, no. You're not Robert as sports bar, but anything buddy sports bar just ravage play like the Walking Dead down. You could go like an Italian joint with no TV's agrees.

"Captain Kareem. Abdul-Jabbar like think is the greatest player ever. But he said that there is no goat in basketball. You saw his comments. I'm show about it. He said there are more than one goat greatest of all time. I beg to differ. I think cream. I have number one, having them one in my goat list Byron, Ireland here on my five greatest players of all time. Number one. Corinne number two. Jordan number three wilt number four, LeBron and number five missed the Russell now let me, hey, you guys as five greatest player ever Michael. I'm absolutely shocked at Magic Johnson, not too. Well, who do I tell you off? You take off, but you Spokane, you said right now are taking LeBron you may you, Michael. You mentioned you've told me many times mentioned its greatest leader in the his team of starting with him? Yeah, but he's easy better. LeBron Byron? Yeah, he's the Browns. The brand rows, no dine, final sodium. Magic magic had a better record defensive end. The Broncos guard five position LeBron's of. Interesting. No, we're saying better player better better. He's a better athlete, but Magic Johnson not being on that list is Redick Michael remain your five. I'm just saying Korean number one. Yet what a number two wilt them me LeBron for Russell, I put, I put I if you want you take out wilt and put in Matic out, take them out, heck out will let's greatest offense of player ever will add one tight on two rebounds agape world to I wouldn't say great his offense player ever. I mean, again, average fifty points a game one year, but against the talented he was playing against two. I mean, that's a different story. I mean, I'm just saying, I'm just saying I'm still going Kareem number one and I I got ta well, okay. MG j. number two. I got magic number three. Okay. And then you can go. I don't know. I mean, you can put Russell, we'll Russell. Yeah. I mean, it's here. You need those guys, but here's Lee magic out. That's okay. Ignored by the way guys make an argument. Jordan went to six finals. Magic, went ten, nine and had the golden hall of fame teams and was five and four isn't five and four in the finals. Just as good as six and you got to get to the money because getting her nine times is an accomplishment in itself. There's no doubt about that. I'd laugh when people written Ron for being three hundred six Ryan. Nine finals. Eight times, remember left foot. A couple of years that was his choice, so to speak. Yeah, but it it is. So the Brahma Joan magic is on that list. Imagining God no doubt about it. Magic Johnson that list. Hey, wait a minute. I'm. Magic. I'm calling him up. Hey, great. Magics. Both here. And I guess. I guess we could call him, but he's on a yacht right now in Italy somewhere. So we'll, we'll wait till he gets back. I don't tell and tell him that. Mt said he wasn't one of the top five of all times. You know what he's gonna. Tell me the next time you in the studio with him slap him again. That's what he will tell me to do. But magic said, Kobe's greatest Laker ever. He magic being in bed banality. I don't think I'll get in trouble for telling the story. So magic is on this trip on this boat Byron's talking about with Sam Jackson. Right? Can you imagine you're in some like a talion villas oncho pay and you're and you're going into the store to get coffee, and you look With with them, you'll taxes. dachshunds Texan. And that looks like magic. One of these two guys, they off vacation together every year. Isn't that like. What do you mean you out of MFN. LeBron's rows, good as magic. It's interesting, but everybody's talking about general, Brian, Jordan, Baroness. All of this This is. is like you said, you got me on that list in Kareem is still too great. Yeah, that's true surprise. You forgot about that. All right guys. One of the most debated moves this off season was the rockets apparent decision to sign Carmelo. Anthony. Anthony is clearly closer to the end of his career than to the beginning, and he's probably a bench player at this stage of his career..
