"A series where you lost four out of five including all three at home in game seven. All i'm saying is if you're that guy they need you to get some of those games and and that's what and that's the issue i have you can talk about the comparisons but but can you win a playoff series. The thing is knows odd. Walk guy at twenty two nobody mag championships at twenty two. But he had kareem abdul-jabbar in his prime. But chris he helps. Who's a hall of famer norm. Nixon was an all star. Like lebron at twenty. Two is the only one who's done more than luca. He got to the finals but he he looked bad in those finals. Against the spurs. What could nibble job shot. But i'm so nobody is done. You can't point to a guy that's been guy at twenty. Two larry bird with to a team with three other hall of famers yet. Rob lowe repairs kevin mckell and they already had tiny archibald but chris. Here is his first improved. Thirty two wins. Larry had an hall of famers though. But but those guys behind could play but they had thirty two less wins the year before is what i'm signed. It wasn't that it was it wasn't like they were a playoff team and he showed up. They were bad team but they were they had. I don't know what the coaches were doing. But no authority to win. Improvement is a huge now burgers indus but also rob. Because here's the thing. And i just gotta keep it real all we you know. We hold these guys to the absolute fist standard and the old guys the legends. The standard bearers. They couldn't live up to the standards. We hold these guys nowadays. Check this out. Larry bird in his first finals. We know he wasn't mvp when they won they beat. Houston his second year in the league. Cedric cornbread maxwell. A good very good. Not great player was the vp rob bird. Had an eight point game in which he shot three or four eleven backed it up with another eight point game in which he shot three free level. So i'm back to back games. Three for eleven and score eight points in each game and then he followed that up with a twelve point game on five of sixteen shooting. He was money in the next game at twenty seven to close out the series. But my point is. I don't look at dodgers wasn't supposed forget beating the clippers. He wasn't supposed to take them the seven. They got leonard at hall of famer all time..

"The class list Move. Who carry years as a player. You know, I've always say I've always said that carry Irving to me. Maybe he'd be best Celtic guard. Offensively that I've ever seen put on the uniform with the Boston Celtics, but they just he just did not. It just didn't connect and register at the end of today, because I think he is such a in You said job, I guess different individual. You know, when Boston they he talked about race being, uh, the race race car being played when he came back to Boston and hoping that you know what people didn't boo carry because he was black. People booed carry because they did not like him. And so you know, everybody. So you you racist if you boost somebody. Well, when they when they had Gordon Haywood go back to Salt Lake City. They move Gordon Hayward they born because he was there were racist or they booed him because they just didn't like him. So I think Carrie rubbed this city the wrong way. Promised that he was coming back and just kind of stiff them and went off to Brooklyn that just just a lot of people off. But no doubt I res love affair or the love affair that he that this city had with him is long gone. Are you optimistic about the future of the Celtics? Yeah. You know when you have when you have great couple of great players, and they just said, Hey, them is Kingdom is unreal and scoring the basketball. I think that thing him and brown if you don't move, Brown But the thing I think that more than I laugh about is that you, you'll you'll get a kick out of this. 650 games. I've charted this out. Around north Hatem has ever had a dustup with anybody from the opposition. And you used to say, what did that? No, they've never. I've never seen them go like up in somebody's face and get mad. Not even like to hold me back type of situation where they're trying to fight but not really fight. I've seen all of them. I never has never been a hold me back situation like dude, if you do that, if you and I think that that's one thing they have to do, and I'm not, and I know take them to a different type of player. But, you know still, even with that Luca dotage, who is a great player for Dallas was a couple of weeks ago. Somebody did something to him. He just hauled off and bang, bang the guy right in the nuts. So you know all the great players you know you've ever seen play. I've had dust up with some other player from the opposition. Neither one of these players brown North Tatum, I've ever done that, And I just really think that is That's kind of weird. And they have, I think they you know, I'm not saying they need to fight, but when they protect themselves, I think is going to make their other teammates realized that they need to be more physical. We all know how great Tatum can be. We saw that early on when he dunked right in LeBron's face in that game seven that they did lose and even though they lost this series, as expected against the Nets, He was phenomenal Is that physicality? Just the only part you want to see his game take the next level. You think there's more ways that he could improve off the impressive start? Probably be more of a facilitator. Setting the table for others making other guys more accountable. I think that's the biggest thing you're taking ownership of. This is my club. And you know what? You didn't do this, so I need to talk to you about it. I didn't do this. So I'm gonna tell you what I didn't do. Accountability to me, I think is the biggest thing that you know he needs to grow into to be that player that everybody in Boston right now and around the country. Look at you say he's just amazing superstar. Last thing last year's I want your player perspective on this subject, Maxwell No, no, not not really. I think that he was hurting. And LeBron James has played to paying for for a lot of the year. And he's 30. What 36 For 35 36 years old right now and 16 17 wherever he said Father time is catching up. So for him to go ices ankle and look at that. Look at the game and say this one's over. Let me get ready for the next one. I had no problem with that. Subject. Maxwell. We appreciate you the best. We appreciate it. All right. Take it easy, boss. There's Cedric Maxwell Joining us on the Zach Killed show on CBS Sports Radio. Yeah, we all know they're not treated Jason Tatum, but I did find it compelling. About how he would talk about considering moving Jalen Brown to the timber walls for Karl Anthony towns. We've heard Captain rumored for a while, and it just never did happen that you know, other than Kyrie, Danny a change and he did make that trade back in the sixties. Move up to get Marquel folds. And you did get Jason Tatum. Day. A lot of big players that Danny Angel is rumored to be in on and just never pulled the trigger on it. The Mark Jackson Idea. It's It's really amazing how Mark Jackson has not been a coach again in the in the NBA. I know there was a lot of ugliness in the departure with Golden State. But I have not heard his name and his name gets around for a lot of big jobs. You never expected actually get it, But I have not heard his name yet. And stories. Not that ancient, but I've not heard his name be speculated about that. Really names you're hearing are Chauncey Billups, Sam Cassell, maybe lie renege on the staff Cara Lawson, Becky Hammon have not heard someone threw out Mark Jackson and Cedric. Cornbread. Maxwell just that I thought he was spot on by the way with Kyrie. Okay, let's break. We'll come on back. Who's gonna win between the Clippers and the Mavs tonight?.

Have the 'Bad Boys' Pistons been overlooked in NBA history?

"Had a great relationship that you're going to bring some of the stuff that you when you cover the bad boys the Pistons. Yes, your relationship. Someone will break horn and those guys in that area some new insight because now we're especially with the day of covet we're supposed to live through the past and you know the big dance the last dance with with Michael was such a huge thing that happened. The Pistons were right in the middle or at the end of the beginning or the ending of where Michael started. Yeah. Yeah, and and and for me, you know, I I was around that team at a time when they took the Pinnacle of NBA greatness. And so there are lots of stories that you know, I have stored away. I mean like when I was there when they won the title in 2004 would rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups and all those guys and they were little things that they did that people didn't realize played a role in winning a title things like Larry Brown, for example, the first play of every single game if they went to jail ball was get that damn ball to Ben Wallace and let him go to work because big fella knew he wasn't touching the rock much at all if at all after that, so they made a point of getting him the ball first possession every single time. They got the ball in office and they just cleared out and let him go to work and if he scored great if he didn't we gave you a shot. It's little things like that that helped them build team. Chemistry and bonding and Trust knowing that hey going to get you twenty-five Thirty points, but if you don't do the big fella bone and you going to get you 15 Reba, I don't know any other brothers often times. I can think of that had developed that kind of chemistry and I was on the championship teams. We liked each other but with those pills like those dudes would suck blood brothers. Like, you know, it's like the way they think the way they perform it was like bad boys in the years that bad boys for life like that movie that's just seemed like the way they were

"The first problem was the archival footage. How do we go about that? Cuz that's a license and we don't have money for that the license that how do we get some so what do we do? We do something fresh and current we started doing that all of a sudden and out here in Hollywood. We went to Kansas and shot a Sizzle about a week's worth of footage put together a 3-minute Sizzle brought it back here to LA and I had some friends in the. I don't usually do documentaries. I do like little other other movies and my doc people were like, this is Ross good. Can we take it to here? And here I said, yeah and very quickly we had companies that that were in love with this project and kissing and for obvious reasons wage and it was a company that produced a Kobe Bryant doc. They produced the Tom Brady. They did the LeBron shut up and dribble duck. They were like where you want. We want to help you out. I said, okay, you know, here we go. We finally made it and They said look, I think we we all agree that it I wanted to be a feature film at first, but then we started talking. This could be a series. This could be like a Netflix series all kind of you know where we wanted it off. They said we would help you with whatever you need. As long as you can get access to the school and get let them get give you permission to film. Hopefully the players throughout the season and off. I went back to the casting and shot some more and talked to the the school and they ultimately said no and for me, this is no they said no so I am trying to call them out, but that was very frustrating for about a year. We had to figure out what we're going to do after that. Like as far as their wouldn't let you see women. They wouldn't let you do what you go with the girl the kids in high school and take advantage of the plan for my specific proposal was to get access to the season so we can film throughout the next season the contrast piles a new kid like Jake the players and the coaches and I was going to contrast that with the Dory Hines over at. Uh Parrott Academy, you know, just two coaches to programs mainly kissed obviously is the is the key is the key ingredient and I told them everything. I just told you and more detail. Now we can do it can't we.

"It was two the two against you said we thought we were building them anyway, but they somehow, you know squeaked two games out. So it's two the two and and we felt like whoever was going to win. We we put pressure on ourselves for game fight off. You pop ahead 28-15 and that was what propelled me to be the finals MVP on denial, you know, those those things in life and his and I is so comical cuz I think about the guys who won the floor it were I want to say least at least five guys who wants a dog Hall of Famers get three guys who were to let me see who are those guys turned out to be the top 50 players of all time away Kevin mekeel phone number Robert Parish. Moses Malone were all on the floor at that time. We're from Kinston. They're gone lived on the east side of the home, you know became the finals MVP and then came out with a crime. That was that was that was on the ground. Yeah, and then afterwards analysts comments area all that stuff. You're hilarious. First of all, you funny. I mean, you know and and not like when people say that but also offer is do it like Stuart Scott stares. I said that the stewardess got one time when he was a famous Jewish guy who worked for ESPN he who were talking he was in the building for a game. I said, man, so you are so funny. He said, But did I give you pertinent information for sure? Yeah, and then I looked at when you said like and and you made me think about it and that's what I try to do. I try to be funny but at the same time give pertinent information which is going to keep you and I try to do a game like I am like I'm like I'm on the sidelines and we're we're just talk is about the guy out there playing I'm telling you move to he might do or something like that. So I try to sprinkle in a little bit of Comedy a world of knowledge. I given the game totally first name, but no the funny stuff is just more memorable, you know and doesn't mean that you ain't being pertinent that whole lot. Somebody gave me some Cheetos. I saw that shit on on YouTube. I watch it like three times anyway, and and you're still doing that right? You're still you're still this is my this is my twenty-fifth year being a broadcaster. So yeah, I've seen them wage. I've seen them go. I saw Paul Peirce when you first stepped into the building and so Rondo his first game and and all these guys who've come in and you know, he was like Kevin Garnett to win championships and to be with Larry Bird and and and see his first game and Kevin McKell and Robert Parish his first game in the building and they you know that the Hall of Famers played with Dennis Johnson and like I said Nate Archibald, so I played with the grace. I've seen the grace of broadcast, you know with the great so long it's been around red are back, you know, knowing who he was when the greatest architects of basketball and and people talked about the Celtics and which people didn't know it was 166 had the first black player who ever played who played in the NBA real hard back drafted him the first starting black fire in the NBA.

I'm just sweating now by the end of the day practice. He is I get to the first wife first black guy could save her some black person. I like you know, what about the book and white guy can play and and that was my introduction to Larry Bird. And now that I can identify what a white guy that thought is was actually probably that he hurts me to say it. Now there was actually better than I was and I just couldn't identify with that at all. You know, when I was in college or basically sneak into the pros. I didn't think that way he was from like from Indiana. Yeah, and then God was a funny guy. Not only did he give me Larry Bird, but he gave me two of the greatest wage. Is blade one time on the same thing? It's Kevin McHale right drop that in and sprinkle a little bit of Danny Ainge in there. Now all of a sudden you're going camping. This white guys can really play that song means we're going to Corner the market right now on white players. They not left know. We're not mean there was a product of his environment, right Indiana basketball. Yeah, he was he wage is a product. It was really strange in 1977. I played against which was going eventually be one of my my team-mates 1976 actually played against Robert Parish who went to sitting there University and we played them in Charlotte and we were both top Independence at the wage in the country. And whoever was going to be the best independent was going to go it's going to shoot them forward. Well, we played them in Charlotte in front of about twelve thousand people and And we end up winning the game and I heard a story about two months ago about a guy who was actually sitting in the front Road told me about this game. You said man. I was there. I was watching the game. It was Jake worthy. So, you know, you you think about how you influence people in this way and you see them and you just kind of laugh and now things happen. So those were the great players game I played with Dennis Johnson Nate Archibald, but you know people talk about the Hall of Fame and I said the Hall of Fame when the Boston Celtics retired my jersey and put it up in the rafters always said that that time I said, the Hall of Fame is in Springfield, Massachusetts no offense of them, but the Hall of Fame is right up in these right above my head where I'm going now and you think about the Celtics are by so oh, you know you went if you can win two in a row and three peat or what?.

What you're going to do is put that on the layaway. I know that that slash right in the base right there. Oh my God, my mama going to KMart. No worries. That you're going to quit, you know, put a pair of sneakers that you pay $4 and then another four or then you got stuck with layaway, right even which is even off today is like this famous word was in kills them that you know what you're going to do. I'm going on layaway. See that's all normal to me growing up is that that was probably just a little off Stand that because the weather there wasn't anything called credit back in the day. That was your credit, but you weren't taking the home and you had to work for it. That's what tobacco fields are fools. You know, you go like okay, you're going to put that on but I'm going to put $5 on that and put it on layaway and I'll come back and get it. I'm sure there's some things right now that you still have a layaway, you know, we're back again hilarious. So so after you well the first of all NBA Finals MVP where you keep the trophy home, where is the right now don't even happen anymore really not gave it to my mom had it then I have my only thing I have right now I think is my wife the finals MVP watch everything else now is is gone. So let got rid of it because those things I don't identify with. Yeah, and if it's got value and you know dead Uh, Larry Bird, I'm even asked all these questions before but what was Larry light was? Parish yeah, what was what was Larry? Well, there was the first one. I actually met that came in to lie. It was Larry came in my I was going into my third year and we drafted Larry Nance Jr. Eligible with last time that happened. There was supposed to be a senior you could draft kids who were supposed to be seniors. That's what bread are back. Did he grabbed it? Larry Nance Jr. Eligible. So when Larry came to us, it was like they had the sign Larry or they had to where he was going back into the the the draft and I had such a great year. I think Boston took Larry Bird with the 6th pick in the draft and and in nineteen seventy eight or seventy-nine one of them, but that was my sophomore year and my second year. So my third year Larry walks into the building and I'm thinking of my mind I'm like Great White Hope. Comes. Okay, it's got to be a piece of work right? It's going to be easy. So me and Larry played against each other the first couple of days and man, I gave him every possible move that I could give him and know he didn't he didn't stop me. I was still been I've been there between 30 points a game, you know, cuz I'm Larry was not a Defender but what I found out later because I was so prejudiced about basketball because we've been taught over the years that you know as black play nice boys game play..

It was guys you had read about guys could look at and you know, I my first day I'm looking at where Boston I get drafted and I didn't want Boston to draft me cuz I wanted to stay South and Atlanta was I found out it was after that. So I wanted to go to Atlanta. That's why I really wanted to play and Chicago was after that. So it was Milwaukee picked number 11 song Speak number 12, Chicago was thirteen. In Atlanta was number fourteen. So I was hoping that any one of those teams that went to North they want to go to Milwaukee. But Chicago in Atlanta where my pics and got picked my boss and then went to their Ricky Camp and I'm looking at John Havlicek Dave cowens JoJo white. I mean, it's just like trolley Scott. I'm looking at all these guys who were soon to be home Hall of Famers and was just my mouth was just opened and then then the guys that you played the game in the NBA that you you know, you start seeing like doctor J or you saw my favorite player of all time was Kareem, you know playing against them. It's just it was just eye-opening to walk to be In that particular area and to see those guys and say that you know, hey, they put that service that they put on their job just like I did one leg at a time. There was a eventually I saw them put their junk on like then they do they put this and then they let me ask you though. So I thought when you did finally getting that in the moment of on the court playing with these guys playing against these guys did it did they seem better than you imagine they would be or did you see they seem like they weren't quite as nice as what was that? I mean as far as their game like that it seemed know they seem I know who they were. Dr. Jason who he was Kareem, you know, all these guys suck signaling who they were they were great as well standing that I was thinking like me and I am playing against the grates and then I think my first year it was job was playing a few minutes. If I ever I always made about seven eight points again, and then I wasn't playing this much and.

"A pick-up game, you might give one or two good runs where everybody is occupied. Everybody is you know running up and down. Well when you play half-court and it was three on three. Your fundamentals got to be better cuz everybody had to handle the ball. Everybody had to be able to shoot everybody had to defend and you know, you weren't going to be your boss will be Snowbird and trying to get a layup at one end of the floor. So you were consistently playing defense and you consistently plan office. And I think that was one of the things that was really good about being a Holloway seller you play you there was a little boy seeing that you had to graduate in the eventually go to the big boys in and play down there and you know, it was like dead it planned down there was like going to Madison Square Garden. Everybody was down there watching you you you get down to you make one mistake and they're going to use on your local you're getting cut off work on play anymore. And you lost even if you were good and you lost you were three four or five games deep before you got a chance to play again. That's beautiful. Then that right there explains a lot. Yeah, that that's why people say and was David leonhardt was the he was the director of Holloway Center bulb and you know God she was he would he was brutal he was in me and it was mr. Kokiyo, Jeffrey KO feel he was the other man after him and jabbed. I remember really a Holloway the thing about it was David lenhardt was he was a Taskmaster and he had no choice you funny you think about patients. He had no patience for kids at all. He came in and because I probably could have been a pretty good football player went out for the football team and I was off cuz I was told and all his say was you know, Hi hike and they'll do is throw the ball height though. He's the he kept seeing dropped back drunk driving back. I say my can I just throw it off balance and drop back, you know and I want home and that's the word that day. Never play football again. It was funny. Let me ask you her thigh read this or heard this but I hear you still play spades at Holloway something. Oh God. That is that's that might be the Spade capital of the world. That might be the card Capital the junk talking from playing Spades. Everything was so competitive that Holloway, you know, we they and it didn't have the best equipment but there was ping-pong you had great ping pong players there. You have people who Holloway son. They have a swimming pool and always say people of color didn't know how to swim. Well people are colors used to swim at the pool all the time song. It was everything was so competitive. There was baseball football basketball at the end of the day kind of trumped all of it if you have to say about space but yeah Spade tournaments may be a twist. It was it was even now even today when I go back to Kinston now, I don't play basketball, but I go to Holloway just play spades and talk notes. That's that's great. I mean, it's like Holloway is the epicenter. I guess that competitive fire.

The Big Girls Club then shakes the last job, shows like if you're asking so I get white off. So I know you've been asked this question a million times. But how did you get that? Nickname came from a movie called cornbread often me. Jamaal Wilkes used to play basketball for the Lakers. He was playing he was in a movie with Larry Fishburne the way back in the seventies and he was a basketball player and I had the same kind of Build Jamal head light color eyes and people saw the movie My Buddy saw and they like you looked like cornbread and I was like what I'm talking about dude in the movie package. Like what are you talking about? You know, so I went to see the movie and saw Larry Fishburne was in the movie was about a basketball player who had befriended two little kids and jobs and he end up getting the whole thing the irony of all this is that Jamaal Wilkes who played that his role his name was cornbread. He killed by the police and how appropriate is that he was he was out running that was there was a Merc. There was a robbery at a Bulb Store and he was running home with a basketball and The police they start running you and it's like even though they were talking to him. He got shot the ball rolls away. And then Larry Fishburne who is there was corn bread eggs and Larry Fishburne was me he ended up telling the rest of the store and and the got on the witness stand and he said corporate I wasn't doing anything. So all that the same thing my my buddies who I went to school with it. UNC Charlotte just called me the franchise what we go to the NIT in nineteen Seventy-Six and if they're joking around them from some of the reporters cuz they're asking me questions and you.
