New Insights on the Bruins' Disappointing Week
"A great way for Bruins not a great week. I know they ended it on our early started next week Sunday. They started to walk on a good note, but not ending particularly. Well, there are a lot of problems. What was the biggest to you? Well, I mean, obviously the the one where you look at just the Optics of it right is the defense, right? I mean you give up 13 goals in two games. I think everyone get concerned about that and I think that's wrong. You see the right flag is you know, you're seeing way too many transition goals created chances in front of Rask and a lot, but the thing is is that that's always a concern. Oh shit. Like when you go that many goals. I'm sure not to spend learning but also, I mean I look at it right where I think we all are in agreement of the rooms and needs more depth on the blue. Looks like we've talked about at home last week. Like that's a guy they need right? So this isn't any surprise and when you missing three starters on your blue line, you know, including two guys in lausanne and Thursdays are good at kind of showing up that net front and girls like ew, you know as much as I think people are now the critics been hurt. I feel like there's like the The Narrative of like, oh they can they they can do well without them, you know, he's an injury-prone. Even though it's really only been kind of this year. We're didn't really really bad. But you know you miss Chris leak in his ability to get the puck out and you know, get the brake outgoing and hit those first passes cuz off these games have been stuck in their own Zone with for checking issues. So but you look at that defense, right you miss those three guys, you have back and iron in a top pairing roll and you know, yes potential. I mean we've seen multiple times we're out of something. He's big enough yet to handle some of these guys and he's been just kind of Knocked around by Chris Kreider which led to a goal. He got knocked around by Andrews Lee and pushed around which led to Chicago gets the island is so I mean you go to depleted decor and you know, you got drawn more playing like the minutes and he did not look very good. The last two games so wage. Obviously, you're shorthanded you hopefully you hope that a shorthand unit doesn't give up 13 goals, but still it's not expected. But you had to know that there was going to be some issues with your going to be giving birth. One more chance has given how the state of your Decor is. Now.

Maybe we look at it from the point of view of what the mayor and the superintendents say, they're gonNA focus on here this trying to establish this cultural competency of the the idea that officers will understand the neighborhoods there in that does seem to be a an has been a problem for for many years and and then they're going to. To focus on deescalation collation skills so that the officers who come in are not tempted to do what Jason Van Dyke did and suddenly you know within seconds of stepping out of the vehicle, pulling out a gun, firing sixteen shots, and then moving to reload you know those kinds of basic skills are what the department is still falling short. Those those dozens of deadlines. I think you can get overwhelmed with it. But when you look at the big pieces I'm reminded of what governor Pritzker said about repeatedly about dealing with the unemployment. Claims in the pandemic with IBS. They were trying to build the airplane in mid slight. That's clearly what this overtaxed and stressed out Chicago Police Departments Greg Pratt. Is that a sufficient excuse for the Police Department to Miss, seventy percent of these consent decree deadlines, which we should mention grew out of the killing of a quantum McDonald. Can they just say we're overwhelmed and we'll do better. Yes I get to be bad cop here because the answer is no and you know what much of that is much of those deadlines that got asked as pre corona virus, so you can imagine how much worse it's going to get, but this is a department that has always struggled to do paperwork whether it's oil requests or other things, and you're the city of Chicago if you're the mayor if you're a journalist. You got demand that the city picks up the pace. Because this is one of the big issues of our time and to say, we're busy. Doesn't do it. This isn't. This isn't some random foia requests or something. This is a this is A. Essential thing for the safety of officers, and for the safety of the public, and this is something we should do is put out by the federal. Monitor Maggie Hickey model, and he had Eureka. One of the things she said was not really. Agreed upon was an established protocol for police officers that are in schools. Does that poor more fuel on the fire for the folks that want remove police officers from schools? You know when the mayor says that These kind of reforms that we want. are not going to happen overnight. I would ask the question How many months is considered overnight, and and and how many years is considered overnight because this is not overnight eight, this has been many many months that the department and the city have failed to meet these deadlines, and so this is par for the course for the Chicago Police Department and for the city in terms of making department. Do what it's supposed to do, and when it comes to cops in schools. Schools absolutely, this is a huge issue now and it it's it's further evidence to community advocates who say that cops in schools only creates a school to prison pipeline line that there is further foot-dragging on doing the right thing all right well. Let's move on to some other news this week. A landmark wait a week at the US Supreme. Court I the court rejects the trump administration plan to end deferred action for childhood arrivals or Daca Mayor Lori. Lightfoot says she was surprised, so let's hear what she had to say. Can you weigh in on the Supreme Court's decision to block up president trump's end to Dhaka calling an arbitrary. I hadn't. Others good news. And a truly. That's good news. I'm grateful. There are so many people. There are so many young people. Who contribute incredible ways? To the vibrancy of our country. They deserve. And have the right to be here. Finicky, the president said immediately that they're gonNA try and Redo away to legally. End Daca, so is this just sort of temporary relief for dreamers? It do think is that not just because of what President Donald Trump doubled down on today in saying that he is going to move to again and Daca, but it's because it. This is left to the whim of any administration until you really have a law, I mean I it and so it's an executive order at this point. Advocates are saying we need congressional action and I will say however for any sort of recipients that of course on pins and needles, and all points in time, those who have already been deported by ice believe even as this has been outstanding issue. There of course is a in an election. In November, folks are very energized for it in a lot of things in government. Is We all know? Do take a Lotta time as the previous. In, obviously the COPD consent decree meeting guidelines and deadlines chose it takes a lot of time. Those wheels of government turn quite slowly, therefore with an election on the horizon. Those who want from out of the White House. They believe we're looking to that and perhaps hope that he is going to be able to do much with Dhaka before that point in time, things change of course where he'd be real act, we'll see if this becomes a political issue or it does seem like a majority of the country supports supports dreamers Mike. Flannery, also this week's. Court does rule that workplace. Discrimination Protections extend to lgbtq workers. Are you surprised that to so called? Justices joined with the liberal bloc on this ruling. Well I guess it's easy to say yes, but when you realize that one of another justice who actually dissented from that opinion read Cavenaugh. He congratulated of the the gay community, the the activists and the lawyers who had won this victory, even in his dissenting opinion and Saluted the outcome. The the dissenters in in in most part the drew legal distinction. Saying this is not the way to do it. and they that was their disagreement I. I think it shows how fast public opinion has moved I. Mean we've talked a lot about it, but remember back. Obama was first elected when he was first elected, he did not support. Support a gay marriage, and then, and then shifted once he got into office, certainly a cultural issue that has moved rapidly and let's come back to another cultural issue. Being talked about here in Chicago, and across the country Chicago, City Council approved an ordinance commemorating. June teens, but not officially recognizing it as a holiday here is what Alderman Leslie Hairston had to say about it. I am angry and I don't apologize for that because.

Could you give you could split that? Up between him and pip like where's that money coming from his points about Jeb Bush? Learn Steve Kerr and the rest of those guys come back on one year. Deals is absolutely fucking that on balls accurate and I do agree with him like. Hey you probably COULDA got Scotty. And honestly at that point after they want three in a row and they'd be going for four zero. I would love to go back. And Look at the nineteen ninety nine offseason sucking trade acquisitions in what was going on. The market like players could have both positive. Michael Jordan was like Y'all I'm doing one more. I'm doing one more like this. Clyde Drexler not go to the Houston Rockets. Or does he come off the bench for the ball like shit like that. I don't know no you're right. And they didn't really talk about how that was the lockout year so the shortened season which seemingly have played curve to the Bulls advantage because the bulls were older. And you know kind of tired but I want I if they would've known that. Then maybe Scottie would've taken a one year deal because who knows what were the salaries pro rated. What what's the deal there? You know what I mean could have got more money in two thousand and when he would have been playing for another full five years. There's a lot of. There's a lot of website and I think it's hard to say. It was interesting from Jordan's perspective that he didn't want to walk out on top it was maddening. He said maddening to leave at your peak. That was very interesting and it contradicts already set earlier in the documentary. What did he say earlier earlier in the documentary? They talked about how he's like. I'M GONNA GO OUT ON MY TERMS. I'M GONNA go out of top gotTA WANNA be like cling around for like the rest migrants stopped so like but maybe the city like. Hey he still was on you like he wasn't done being on top like then it's like. How much do you know how much where we heard? From 'EM J. You know we roll. Our Eyes Julia mad now. I'm Jay leg. I made the joke. Like I feel M Jay's got fucking struggle bowls on his list like everybody's on this fucking guys so at some point is kind of like. Is this really a real thing like seventh where he really manning? Did you WanNa get away but you give the Guy Credit? His loyalty to Phil Jackson was through the roof. And I'm curious. That was the first ten to drop right. Feels like I'm out. I'm my coming back or do you think it was kind of forced. Phil's hand because they just didn't WanNa fucking all the money they I think I think it was already decided. Like they said and he would. Just fill it. Well Point Fills I. Why do I need this Jerry? Krause is being a Dick Jerry. Reinsdorf prize right there with them. If you don't want me if you want fucking Tim Floyd out of Iowa. State my guests at some point like yeah not even an ego driven thing at some point. It's like if you don't respect that I brought six championships here with this team. Like I'm done I'm just done. Yeah you know. And then Ends with fill the coffee burn bucket. I Dunno sounds like a pretty cool ceremony. I don't know it was it was. It was a nice way to wrap it. Up Though Ibiza fries if staved Abbas doing a coffee burned bug thing in the backyard at some point the next week or two guys And all support him if he does. I love the way that came out from Phil Jackson. He's Deep Zang Guy. That was something I think. A Lot guys got beyond Michael Jordan right palm does. The prize surprises me. Though at Yeah it does. Is it a pump. Do you think it's a home that rhymes or do you think it's one of those palm dog. Is this voters. It's just like a weird. What is one of those like throw a bunch of hard for heartfelt sentences and words around and it's a poem you know probably ought of being chose all young Jays. I this is what I want the cities Chicago to like the the Celtics and like the Lakers. That was pretty awesome. And then just it's just fades a black man. It says what happens. In no mentioned the wizards I was happy about that and and that's it was awesome. I it was really sweet. I have one bad negative Like partying gift from this experience. And that's the realization that you know he really doesn't fucking care about Chicago anymore and I just you know he didn't come back for the. All Star game that bother a lot of people I was interested to see the documentary. Got GotTa feel flora. Am I read on? This is is he just doesn't give a fuck not blame. The Guy Whatever. However should happen he came in here. But it's clear that is like obligated came Near Win Championships. And he was GONNA do this for Chicago. But there isn't this longstanding bond with him even though his legacy inch was strongest any athletes in any city of all time so it just kinda sucks that like. Reinsdorf fucked up that like nj leaves as a fucking contractor like he came in here did his job and he's fucking out. Your that is very sad. It's very unfortunate like we would kill to see that guy back at fucking United Center. Give him one more entrance and has had the place literally do a standing all for however fucking minutes. It would go. Yeah can't imagine how long that look. What do they have to do to get them back it? It sucked sucking socks. It does man. It does Dan man. I'm Kinda said while that was because they had like the hard close with that what he was like fucking comments came in. I told I told Chicago. Do this get it you know. And then they fucking. It was Har Harkat. Can you think of the movie? Your experience like hard costs like that or like the Bulls rebuilt. I guess not and that's not but but the top to bottom five weeks ten episodes. Did you get what you wanted to do? You like it. Yeah I got what I wanted. I think it's going to be like Godfa or to Where the timing I think twice about a frequently and as I go back and watch it. I'll probably it'll get better over time like I'll have. I'm looking works. Great Stories in there. Definitely watchable how about you. Yeah it was awesome man because like I told. You I'm twenty nine. I didn't get to remember you know I didn't get to watch a lot of that. Live and I just didn't remember it a lot of it. So COSC- how it went through to get the fucking clearance and the clarity. On the Steve Kerr incident and a bunch of other things it was it was awesome and needed to be done. And you know like you said with a guy like Mike you never know like how closed off he would have been. There was no guarantee that we were ever going to get that. You know so. It's awesome that we got that and I mean that thing's GonNa live forever you know it's GonNa live forever. That's a great point at son daughter. If I have kids were GONNA sit around watching him to be able to tell stories about. It tells a story perfectly. It captures the essence of Michael Jordan. Like the excellent competitor perfectly. We had a lot of moments. We grew up watching him so To hit that threshold with us you know I would imagine basketball. Fans alike. Didn't have the opportunity. Seem as close as we did probably are just fucking Florida with it. So the honor percent. It's GonNa hold up man. It's fantastic. It's it's like yeah you're right. It's going to be there forever. So Yeah Karl von Man. Five weeks of this re watches. Watch ten playoff games time out shows. Thanks for thanks for joining me. as always But that's it. Thanks everybody for listening.

"R. Eligibility requirements and additional terms apply. Okay let's hop into the show. The end of the last dance. I mean bat was fucking awesome. It was wasn't it? Yeah I won't start at the beginning but just right now there's Ryan high off that ending. Were you overall like are you? Did you feel it? I thought nine was better than ten. That was a game of thrones season. One through six little treatment. There were episode nine. Did a little bit for more me than episode ten I want your reaction for much more. You're very jacked up and I wanna take advantage of the fact Linear Jack Dot. Nolan's air jacked up got it. Don't just just. Let's let's start with you that when we we like to start order anyways so we'll start with that episode nine. It begins in like a Reggie Miller montage. They're tied up Miller because he calls them black Jesus Jordan calls them the best team that they faced outside of Detroit and it just sets up for an awesome seven game series in the Eastern Conference Finals. And they do a great job. I just I'm a little. I was like that was my breakthrough moment episode nine because they have the ninety eight Eastern Conference Files Games one through four Michael almost hits it like rims out then they just cut back to the nine seven finals against Utah Jazz. Then I tell some story about vitamin ROT. It'll Brian Russell. The trash in I liked that I was just like caught up. Like oh it's ninety seven files. We're talking about ninety seven. And then they show him hit the game winner game one so I had I you so we can they kind of both that up for me a little bit between the ninety seven finals in like the Eastern Conference finals. So is a little hard for me to kind of like once. We cleared that like once. He hit the game winner and then go to the flu game. I was Kinda like I think I kinda see where this is dawn. Okay she kind of came together. Here's the thing you do understand. That might have been a little tricky for them because it was the finals. Matchup was back to back. It was the same so to kind of make people understand that with time line. I could imagine them shooting. That was weird right. Yeah I think that's pretty weird because they're like well. How do we make this clear that this is the ninety seven files in the ninety? Seven finals isn't really the store anyways. for whatever reason. I mean they really. We didn't get any of the nineties. And although I love the fact that they went debunk Kerr. Like I didn't see that coming at all. Yeah that was crazy. And what probably episode nine. What gave me the goosebumps. Before he got Kerr was when he was assessed. Still San gotta come through Chicago. You still gotta come Scotto. I was. I don't know that Jack me up. That might have been my favorite quote or my favorite like killer instinct. He could see your eyes Michael Jordan moment. Yet through this whole time episodes. You know okay because there's wanted episode ten that I don't Wanna I don't WanNa ruin we're GONNA stand up as the flu game story. Heard some speculation before think someone leaked at story in our livestream before so I was prepared for that. It's still a wild story yet. It's crazy picture that five people walking up with a pizza and fucking Salt Lake City. Utah being all like. Where's Jordan like we're going to give them this fucking Sawdust Pizza? That probably has who knows whatever the fuck is in it and picture in them all getting that call you know three M. obviously if you're Michael Jordan's guy you're probably on-call like forever. You know what I mean you are. There's no no time is off limits. You Get up and you go no matter time. Place Day vacation doesn't matter into them walk in that room and know that he's got a game that day and look down on them in the fetal position was probably insane. Yeah terrifying for a lot of reasons although I feel like people closest to. Mj could see that game coming. We've got an obviously the media. You probably can't say tonight inside bullet you know if you round up John Michael. Wozniak cost latte like the boys that were close Damigella. Y'All what do you think's GonNa happen the night behind closed doors? You-know-who like dude. If he's sick he's tell him he's going to kill them all. There's GonNa be a little bit of a different kind of attitude. Different type of killer instinct for sure and do you buy Jerry. Sloan saying he didn't know he was sick Yeah I mean Jerry. Sloan Emmy is hall fame competitor. I feel like Jerry Sloan all-share you're like he's got he's got nothing to prove like he's going out there trying to drop a good game plan so I gotTA respect the compliments in Chicago Florida unless you feel differently. I mean he's such an old school dude so if there is a coach to believe on that I would give him the benefit of the doubt of anyone. But you know how it works like if you're in a locker room and there's a game going on the fact that no-one muttered to him hayward is Michael's pretty sick. It's hard to believe mice foot do you okay. Here's a it kind of reminds me of like baseball when they're like Yo I have. This is relevant. I guess with the Astros but before they'd be like hey i. Have you know a tip on the pitcher or like you know? I got the signs. Do you want the signs some hitters. Don't want to sign some hunters are like. Hey Don't don't get my groove. So maybe Jerry. Sloan was the coach. Where it's like if you wanted to Jerry as long as a MJ sick. Maybe Jerry slow as the typical. I don't give a fuck of one hundred and fifty percent you know. He's bad guy. I got my own plan. I'm sticking with that I don't care who is doing what over there Jordan is still going on the court so we still. I'm still going at the game plan for sure. Now now on the subject of coaches in episode nine. You've probably your favorite moment of the entire documentary happen in the coach. Involved Michael Jordan Denis. Let the cat out of the bag too early. Ed You roll with it all right. Obviously there's nothing better than Larry. Bird waiting for him in the fucking in in the bowels of the United Center after after getting eliminating game seven. Yeah I I don't see too many people chirpin but I did get a sense of like. Ooh This is interesting and I guess a little weird that they went down the Steve. Kerr path like you said it was. It was definitely interesting but there was like there was a sixty eight minute chunk sackman right there. There was like oh well. This is very why. I'm ready for a finale here. Already to wrap this up. And that was like the beginning of a story of like Steve Kerr and it was cool about the packs and dynamic and how he told them I can trust you. I was into all that but then with his dad I was like. Oh Okay so when I saw people being like. Oh that was that was weird like whatever. I was like all right. If you didn't like him saying you know you bitch fuck you bird at the end like you're worth the price of admission right there for episode nine. Yeah I mean I think that kind of set the stage for later but it's cool to see. Yeah close. He Larry Birkbeck. I did have the sense I was like. I wonder if Larry Bird played like with the Pacers on that game like he came back for like one game only was like six guy off the bench. Or whatever you could. He of made the difference because as we joke around. Ready scored zero points in that fourth quarter. Now Larry looked a little less. I guess he didn't look as much of a killer. You know what I mean like. That wasn't like the player. Larry do you think he's obviously one is titles as a player. Do you think it means less to apply to a coach if you've already won and he's already proven yourself. Yeah one hundred percent. I think Larry Bird Larry wanted income. You get a coach in because you want to make some money and he didn't play the time when you were making you know the money Michael was making and he obviously missed out a couple years on like massive endorsements you was endorsed but so I'm sure at that point Larry. Bird's career beat out of the train. Team one winning several championships being famer considerable the grades. First of all time is probably. I'd be interesting. Feeling for him is seemed to be taken at pretty like he seems to be. Pretty happy for Michael. I think in that case Larry. Probably serious. Those first round lost the Charlotte Hornets. But it's like Yeah Okay your game seven Eastern Styles. Chicago like he lives down. Jae What do you do about Larry for sure for one thing? We've forgot to bring up. What the fuck was brought by an Russell? Doing go going to them when they when he was not when he was still in baseball when he came to say hi to. Carl and stock and he's like Yo. Why did you like I wanted the chance to guard you? You gotta you gotTa be an idiot. Of course who would have thought that came back to bite him in the ass but I mean what? What Dumb Guy do you believe that story word for Work Guy? No Johnson was a little shit. Had like you thinking that I mean I don't see I don't see why Michael Lie about that is as a vengeful spiteful. Guy I think he remembers conversations like that more than any type of conversations period. You know. Yeah it's a good point. But like what if he was like many? What am I pry Russell? Brian Russell came up to him. It was like man. Dude I want to guard you. He's he's saying that like you know would have been so cool out of respect and I'm like I'll fucking kill you like a little less threatening. A little less cocky. I hear what you're saying you know. There's of every story. They didn't have Brian Russell on there. Do they know you're right? You didn't get on there and fucking defend what he said. Jay Price their towns like I would never say that Michael Jordan. Why would you do that? Although who knows I did like the fact that Michael to set the stage when they brought up by Russell episode nine about how he played on the front of his feet. And how you could like direct traffic with them and stuff and so he's like yeah. I knew that guy played overly aggressive and stop. You just got to catch them off balance so sweet interesting. Some other notes have here from Episode Nine. Kerr's parade speech incredible. Yeah like the price of admission..
