And it's pretty much anything ranging from palace pros From both ear to cycling ear to winter jackets could be anything from maki North face to to the old nineteen ninety a starter jacket. Everybody has the chicago bulls one that we all grew up more so i always try to find the brand. The brand names let everyone tries to buy but off discount and then obviously compared to larger with nike and medicine and things like that.

The fun part about all this is that you can go on thrift and you can go and find all the stuff. The hard part is get it all up getting listed getting measured and then getting shipped out with someone. That's that's always the nasa art so just trying to balance both has been tough but again realizing that this is my full time job like there is no teaching job anymore. They're in snow.

NBA Mock Draft 3.0
"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road

"Mothman candidate zappa vein. Canvey than someone like chris. Paul enables that where Russell westbrook does and multiple of sports.

Bulls chris paul group think I think yeah you make a great point too. And i like just to rebuttal that rebuttal. It people were coming up with. I i get just me personally Especially like Looking at a small market team. Chicago's not a small market team. But like looking at you from the pacers one. You're not think to an extent. Chicago is operating like a small market team right now because they don't have star player and they haven't had a winning track record in a while. So i think to an extent you kind of get into that place that makes sense like. What will it kind of what the knicks are dealing with right now. But i'm not on the same level of dysfunction even remotely But i think you look at like okay. Who's coming here in. Twenty twenty free agency if we have another year where the market is not able to take a step when they'll carter's still passive And we don't have a real playmaker so think you look at it and like okay. Get chris paul and if things work out then you can figure out free agency for twenty twenty one then but like right now. It's like what what is drawing people to chicago to play here and make this a wing organization if they're not if there's not really a base there to start off with I think that's something..

He works with zach that he works with kirby win dell under the new coaching staff at cetera. On ninety two be To all situations. I think it's rock decided. Now you have to wait to see how these guys look on billy donovan. Everything's argument fluid. Personally fall is able to get another top seven right. Pick in his. Draw larry martin. I would probably swimming That ofeibea materializes but if the knicks when it comes to the bulls For mocking all the pistons pick seven alarm optional inside than not something out consider. But i'm sure a lot of bills fans wouldn't but some of you just have to do a lot of situations at this point. Heck i would be good with ten from phoenix or new orleans. First rounder as well. And i think he'd be a good fit either of those teams as kind of like even just playing like dario saric floors facing type role like if easy massive upgrade on nickel o'malley for the pelicans in meli played great with zion last year so I think there are teams. That would be interested especially given what we've seen but it's it remains to be seen. What the front office is interested in doing going forward. Yeah yet it's going to be interesting situation. Block against on the sky thinking theme randomly. If if i could get the hands on two picks in saw the top. Let's say and if you give you can get a lake. God or wing and you can get someone like denny let says well and add those two plays to kirby zach and wendelin. That gets interesting to me. And it just changes the tom on the radio to change the profile of the radio. But if you can get Minute pal or By fostering small up more To me that's interesting sir. Yet it could go a number of ways a the surprised if they tried him under off. Not that that's something. I think that should be considered. Yeah yeah. I think it's interesting to just kind like looking at the parallels for teams like I mentioned that. Cover the pacers. Like it's the very similar thing that i look at with With wendell and lowery like we don't know about the fit but with with domus in milestone. I know about the fit. I've watched them for two years like of course we're we're on the verge of running back which i'm very apprehensive about But again like it brings up the same thing okay..

"Just a rumor but regardless i think it was something that was pretty surprising came out on the radar yet. It's one of those things where i'm like. Do i bother getting annoyed about it. Because i just don't know how much how much mentoring behind that room sir isis addressing but yet to your point if there was credibility to that remote that would be concerning to me. Is that whilst. Wendell hasn't been perfect. Prospect probably somewhat underwhelming his first two seasons particularly familiar. Big win fan. Who had high expectations are still do. i guess he hasn't performed to the level that i would have liked a still obviously have huge In the guy but beyond that he's alicia that it could be late in a specific category multiple degrees on coal so that something can hang out on whereas with larry mark in. I don't know what he does on anything that you know. He's beyond that an average very good level at site and i people have to think as a stretch. Power forward is as good scoring big man but he doesn't do those things at a beyond average level of point percentages at an average level scoring average level. Lakewood average levels are from that point of view. I would be concerned. If i do value larry moe than wendell i guess it really does come down to whether view lower mcneil. How viewing even do they viewing potentially as a senator on if you can grow into center. Maybe that changes the trajectory of his career. And maybe my opinion obama's apply at this point based on production based on what we know and even even factoring upside in development. I would still Right window but yeah. I just don't know how much stuff to pretty nonspecific grew yet. Kinda follow up on. What mark said i've since since the report kind of talked myself on the ledge off the ledge on this one Originally i was kinda freaking out about it because kind of like mark touched on. Lowery's been pretty disappointing. You know like he's got a beautiful shot but he doesn't shoot the percents you'd think he would given the opportunities he gets. He shoots it on solid volume. But it's hard. It's hard to kind of justify that when he's a one way player. And i make no mistake and i'll talk about this as much as possible on twitter everywhere i can. I ranked wendell carter junior number one on my bulls young player rankings. I think he's kind of the archetype of center of the future. He's a good passer..

"Yeah. Yeah. Pseudo nosy with you here. Thanks to key for joining us there. Clinton. Yates joins US in about ten minutes Alex Rodriguez. Six o'clock and Mac our Buddy Mark Anthony K of the AFC at six thirty. We do our pick against the spread this week as well. Bergman did the callers who compete against us than any of them win this week? No no the winner. This week. Was Me so. You had lost a couple of weeks in a row I did, but I did win this week. So the callers are not there to get a new collar that's going to win a new corona Kuwait. Yep You one last week, I did and who did the tally I did okay. I lost the last couple of weeks. Do I did did you finish last? I finished last two weeks ago. And I came in I think flashed in. Laura came in last last week. I'm watching you what are the standings for those WanNa know like I let me explain what we do here while you figure that out. In the last segment of the show in theory, we do it on Thursdays but. Or even Wednesday sometimes. We are doing we do picks against the spread and every week we pick the rams chargers, raiders game, and then we had two more games. You know you're right the games of the week basically and Here's how we do it. So we pick each game and says, there's five games we assign a confidence vote to it. The game were most confident in picking against the spread we assign a five game were least confident in we assign a one and so on and so forth in between. So a caller gets to play with us every week and the person who gets to play automatically already win something we give away a cooler each week, a corona cooler with a value of. Two hundred dollars it's like a really nice cooler, and then if they win that, they get to come back and compete against us at another color. So that's how it usually works. But this week no more callers we've only had one caller win so far this season. So we'll be doing that around six forty today and caller Craig was the one that won last week and he came in second with nine points and I barely beat them out with that crazy he was close. Bet On Games in Vegas or something. Laura before we get back to the dodgers real quick because Clinton's GonNa join us You know President Obama. was on the campaign trail yesterday. The big debate is today L. Z. and bury yes and. He was asked a question randomly in one of these. Town halls. He was doing in Philadelphia about basketball and he was asked about Isiah. Thomas and Ed Thomas the Detroit Piston, of course, the hall of Famer and. President Obama's from Chicago as Thomas is from Chicago. She was asked about his affinity for Zach Thomas Being Chicago, Guy and here's what President Obama set. Carl, how old are you? I'm thirty six. Now you're thirty six you seem like a extraordinary young man you may not be old enough to know that bulls fans generally don't like Isaiah Thomas. Okay. First of all super fake laugh by whoever the moderator was there that was funny but not that funny second of all. He then goes on to say to the young man who asked the question did you know what's the last dance? which has been a rough year for Zeke has it not I mean, it's been a rough year for all of us but I feel like Isaiah Thomas just taking arrows from everywhere. He is taking heroes from everywhere because Jordan, right? Right. Like. He's the dude. You know he he is the man. This is his league still and you know I can't think of anyone else. I don't know if you can't George in sports who has retired this long and still dominates from a retail perspective the way that he don't know I just bought two new pairs. Georgia's now I bought a retro. Yeah. So I mean, you always gonNA lose that battle. Bra. Thomas. What's that is that he sticks to his guns he does he does to dig in and saying nope. I think. Oh. It was nick right from F. s one was doing. y you know join us not to go camping. And Isaiah. Thomas, because he can't stay out of it tweeted facts. I'd. Alone, man yeah a Lebron thing right? He thinks Lebron is the best he's did say. Another conversation Lebron is by I. Think he's the most talented player ever seen like I mean, we've talked about this numerous times. We talked a lot during the finals right? He's built like all Malone. He's got the athleticism of Michael and Kobe and he's got you know the passing ability of Magic Johnson like. Ridiculous combination that is really hard to quantify if you don't see it up close and personal life and see just how much bigger he is and everyone else and how hardly anyone if anyone ever at all is faster than him getting up and down the court you know makes you ask yourself houses physically possible you do ask yourself that certainly. Now. Do you ask yourself? About. We were talking a lot about the bullpen game today and. Do you ask yourself you brought up a great point. It's the pictures were being set up to fail right and look Roberts admitted that David admitted that it wasn't. We're not making that up we're not trying to be. You know disparaging here for the sake of being disparaging, I mean Dave Roberts said after the game about Tony Gunslinger and Dustin May and ask him to do what they've been doing. It's a big ask to be quite frank. He says, these guys are unchartered territory credit to them. They're not making excuses. They expect themselves to make pitches. It's different certainly, but we still need those guys to get important. Now it's going forward for us to win this thing. But I L Z look here. Here's my and maybe I'm nitpicking and you can tell me and I'm sure the audience can weigh in if they'd like as well. Okay. Eight, seven, seven, seven. Eight, seven, seven, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six. I think there's one thing to ask that of a veteran player. I think to ask that of a young player. And they are. Babies Okay those two. Yeah that's a bigger ask in my opinion. Don't you think is a huge ask especially when you consider when they ask them to do these things, right? You know like Dustin may didn't know he was pitching in one game until like a few hours before the Games direct career, and now that was injury related but yes but you're. age-related true. Nonetheless, he's already processing life in the big leagues. As quickly possibly can because he's on a team that doesn't really have a lot of time for you to grow as Gavin Lux about that and then on top of that, you know when you're actually going to come in, you know you don't know if you're starting. Relief you don't know when you come in and relieve. You don't even know if you're gonNA close right and you know I've never been a big league pitcher, but I have been an employee. And I know how unsettling it is when you don't know what your employer wants from you correct correct yes. Oh, and I look at these young people I'm like you know no wonder no wonder you know may can't keep his face together because he's probably processing everything all at once in real time in real time because everything all at once is happening to him in real time. Yeah for Sure David and Glendale what's up David? Hey guys I, hope you're doing well. I've been listening to you guys ever since the morning show I love you guys. Thank you. And I am listening to all this radio show I haven't. got a chance to hear anybody talk about this. But a few guys noticed Lakers ramp to. The finals thirty, two times thirty second time and wanted. The dodgers haven't in the world series series for. The last two years. And Magic Johnson was number thirty two who I love the numerology aspect of all of this go ahead. and. If. He had at hand posted in. Yeah I. Think it's been a magical year for both games. And they're. La Championship is going to be into David. Are you dino? Yes. Yeah. We believe in all this numerology. Yeah, yeah I'm with you get what what kind of Latino you're Mexican..
I Disagree with the Second Agreement and I Hope You Take It Personally by TK Coleman
"I disagree with the Second Agreement and I hope you take it personally by tk Coleman of tk. Coleman DOT COM. I like to think in terms of alternatives not absolutes that is instead of adopting an either or logic for problem solving and goal achievement prefer to think in accordance with both and strategies. For example, let's consider the notion of taking things personally self help author. Don Miguel Ruiz has done a magnificent job at popularizing and articulating what is often referred to as the second agreement. Here's a summary of the idea in Ruis. His own words quote whatever happens around you don't take it personally nothing other people do is because of you what is because of themselves all people live in their own dream in their own mind. They are a completely different world from the one we live in only take something personally we make the assumption that they know what is in our world and we try to impose our world on their world and quote. I think that's a very useful idea and I found myself in some pretty lengthy discussions where I've defended it to people who absolutely to test this concept teaches own. I suppose. But as for me, my life has been a heck of a lot easier since I started practicing the second agreement as a critical thinker however, I like to keep my options open. Rather. Than treating ideas like the second agreement as dogmas to be believed in a regard them as value neutral conceptual tools whose usefulness varies with context. Sometimes I like taking things personally even when I know I'm not being personally attacked I deliberately choose to act as if I am being conspired against I usually use this idea as a psychological trick for motivating myself. As long as I can employ the take it personally technique in a way that's healthy and isn't obsessive. I derive great practical value from it. Anyone who's ever played competitive spores probably understands concept very well choosing to look at your competition as the enemy or the bad guys can be an invigorating experience. One of my favorite ticket personally stories comes from Michael Jordan before a soldout contest between the New York Knicks and their rivals the Chicago Bulls Knicks, coach Jeff Van Gundy accused Michael Jordan of being a con man who deliberately X. friendly towards opposing players in order to soften them up and gain a competitive edge over them. Van. Gundy's harsh words were printed in Chicago newspaper and Jordan. saw them before the game. He took it personally and decided to play with a chip on his shoulder for the entire game Jordan had a personal vendetta to show van Gundy just how capable he was having a great game without being nice to his opponents. He did exactly what he set out to do by scorching the Knicks for a red hot one points and one point in the game after hitting an important basket Sharon looked at Van Gundy and yelled at him. One of Jordan's team as reported that Michael Love to us, criticism and hatred as a way of motivating himself a sports commentator who knew of this habit predicted that Jordan would score fiftypoints simply because he would be fired up. I've Angolans words. US, right. Jordan took it personally and brought the best out of him interestingly enough. Here's what Jordan said after the game quote. Guess I. Didn't make any friends out there tonight Jordan smiles I. Think those words were more geared to motivating his players but I don't think on the court they have befriended me, I don't go on the court expecting to make friends. But when I leave the court, I don't take what happened on the court away from me. We're only playing a game. I don't view it as a war away from the game and quote. In a video clip. Jordan talks about how he used that moment as motivation while not letting it get to him in an unhealthy way. Jordan disagreed with the second agreement and it worked does illustrates one of my favorite metaphors for life life a game. As an all games achieving one's goals requires the use of effective strategies. A good strategist is one who remains flexible. He uses what works without ever feeling the need to assign the status of costal truth to any of the strategies in his playbook. If taking it personally works good strategists takes it personally if taking it personally leads to stress and self destructive preoccupation with what others think then it strategist stops to him personally. This attitude of philosophical flexibility can be extended to issues and belief systems. Ideas are just tools sometimes are useful. Sometimes are not which ideas of you when you use them, and how you react to the results is your job to sort out as you sorting through the ever enlarging buffet of ideas being offered in the marketplace be should remember the admonition of Terence McKenna quote nobody smarter than you and quote. You know more about what's best for you than anyone else. So don't take anybody's ideas dogmatically specially now mind think critically about everything. Then take what works for you and leave the rest.

"An undeniable mixture of luck and sheer talent that builds extraordinary teams. The Bulls found that medium in Michael. Jordan. But even superstars have their limits and it seemed like Michael hit his own breaking point long before his comeback one can't help but wonder what the nineteen nineties bowls would have looked like without Jordan's departure for the MLB, his gambling scandals or the scrutiny over his endorsement deals. But unfortunately will never know the Bulls. Heyday is done for good and all we have left is the memory of their former glory..

Rodman and coach Phil Jackson even bonded which further helped the Bulls return to dominance and win their fourth NBA. Championship in June of that year oddly as Rodman. Became less of a liability thirty-three-year-old Jordan as one especially when a nike expose was published in the spring of Nineteen ninety-six. The article described children as young as twelve years old making Nike Products for two dollars and twenty cents a day in sweatshops a pair of Air Jordan's at the time cost one, hundred and fifteen dollars, which was the amount a Nike factory worker earned in one month in Asia. The report made sweatshops and child. Labor practices an international concern. Nike faced protests and constant scrutiny regarding its factories in Indonesia and Vietnam. And there'd be no shoes without the man behind their top-selling sneaker Michael Jordan. The scrutiny came for him in waves. The sports media called on Jordan to join the masses in protesting Nike talk show host. Kathy Lee Gifford's clothing brand also faced a similar backlash for using sweatshops. She wanted Jordan to join her in standing up for unethical labor practices. But again, he wasn't interested in speaking out or risking his million dollar endorsement deal Nike had invested in him when he was an unproven rookie. In light of that, Jordan stayed loyal to the brand when asked about Nike's abuses in June of Nineteen ninety-six, he said. Hopefully. Nike will do the right thing whatever that might be. As Nike considered reforms to its business practices, Jordan signed a one year contract with the Chicago Bulls for thirty point one, million dollars after he and the Bulls won their fifth NBA Championship in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, Jordan resigned for thirty three point one, million dollars Scottie Pippen's obvious high numbers and became even more resentful of the Bulls General Manager Jerry Krause. He was top defensive player and crucial part of the teams five NBA. Championships yet pippen was only paid two point eight, million dollars a year he was locked into a seven year eighteen million dollar contract that he signed in one, thousand ninety-one. And while NBA salaries of other star players, climbed upwards, Pippen's stayed the same in the one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven, nineteen, Ninety, eight season. He was only the sixth highest paid player on the Bulls rookies earned more than him. He was embarrassed that he was spending his best years in the sport as underpaid and underappreciated. But Krauss refused to negotiate pippen's contract and in the summer of Nineteen Ninety, seven, the Bulls made it clear they intended to trade pippen the top brass didn't think that the Bulls could win another championship because the roster was filled with older players in their thirties out with the old in with the young new talent. So the night before the NBA draft it looked like pippen would be traded to the Toronto Raptors but once Jordan found out about it he called Krause and refuse to play without pippen he all but deadlocked the Bulls future season if Jordan refused to play without pippen the Bulls had little chance at fielding a winning team. There wouldn't be a sixth championship let alone the dynasty that krause dreamed of Krause realized this and nixed the trade pippen remained with the Bulls but the almost betrayal simmered within him loyalty from one teammate didn't change the fact that the Bulls had nearly kicked him off the team for an unproven rookie. And that he was still underpaid for staying. Right before the nineteen ninety-seven, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight seasons started pin decided to get his passive aggressive revenge. After rupturing the tendon in his foot during the nineteen ninety-seven season, pippen had been considering a repair surgery but hadn't found the best time granted the lengthy recovery and rehabilitation process. But in light of the contract, Saga Pippen decided October nineteen ninety seven was the best time for it to happen. Barely, a month before the season began. He'd end up missing half the season to recover, but that was his way of making a point. He definitely hadn't forgotten or forgiven, and while Jordan understood the root of Pippen's decision. He still disagreed he personally wouldn't have put his own self interest before winning or at least that's what he claimed. But Pippen, had spent almost a decade in Jordan's shadow. He wanted to do things on his own terms now. Pippen returned in January of Nineteen Ninety eight fully aware that this was his final season with the Chicago Bulls. And he wasn't alone. In light of the knowledge that coach Phil Jackson wouldn't likely return either Jordan was readying for his own last season to the thirty five year old star player refused to play for another coach as for thirty eight year old Rodman his future with the Bulls and the NBA was up in the air. The wildcard was considered an old player close to NBA retirement. Age. Plus Rodman had started acting out again, he reigned in his wild ways while he was filling in for Pippin but once his teammate returned Rodman returned to well normal. He requested a forty eight hour Las Vegas vacation in January of Nineteen, ninety eight and skipped postseason practice to wrestle. Hulk Hogan in a Professional Match, the Well Oiled Chicago Bulls machine was collapsing on itself. Jordan Pippen. Jackson, and Rodman knew that this was their final chance to solidify their own legacies as they prepared for the future. With one more win the Bulls could become the first NBA team to achieve two three peats. They'd not only be known for being part of a winning team but a full-fledged dynasty. This was it. On. June Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety eight the team won their sixth NBA Championship. They got their second three peat and their legacy. But once the win was secured and the season was over the Chicago Bulls that fans knew and loved were ripped apart. Pippen stuck around in the NBA but without their identities with the Bulls Jordan and Rodman's time in the sport faded Fast Rodman briefly played for the Dallas Mavericks, but soon, traded basketball for wrestling and Jordan retired from the NBA for the second time.

"In the early nineteen nineties, the Chicago Bulls established themselves as the best team in the NBA, three years in a row and Michael Jordan emerged as a superstar. But the pressure and scrutiny of being the most valuable player, perfect role model and Nice Guy Brand spokesperson soon, became too much. On October Sixth Nineteen ninety-three Jordan announced his retirement effective immediately at a press conference. It would take years for Jordan to finally feel comfortable enough with journalists to admit that the media blitz surrounding his father's death pushed him out of basketball. On that Fall Day. All he said was that he was done. For now. Jordan didn't rule out an NBA comeback though he said, if the urge comes back if the Bulls will have me if David Stern, let's be back in the league. I may come back the public was shocked at first but soon, the rumors and theories focused on that Jordan quote. Stern was the longtime NBA Commissioner and he had the final say on the barring and reinstatement of league players. Speculation. Abounded that Jordan's retirement was actually a secret gambling suspension. The prying sports media hypothesized the NBA's investigation into Jordan's gambling did reveal wrongdoing. To keep the reputation of its superstar intact the NBA allegedly kept it under wraps and forced Jordan to retire as punishment. When asked about this theory both Jordan and Stern denied that there was any truth to it but it was proved that gambling rumors would continue to haunt Jordan. If he stayed in basketball fully committed to baseball Jordan announced, he signed with the Chicago White Sox on February seventh nineteen ninety-four. Par, for the course, he goes through the team's minor league system and start playing for the double a Birmingham, barons? He relished in just being one of the guys again and learning the intricacies of the sport. But just as Jordan started improving on the field, a storm was brewing in baseball on August Twelfth Nineteen ninety-four mlb players including Jordan, went on strike. During the work stoppage Jordan's progress stopped dead in its tracks. The strike continued into the next year and the MLB searched for replacement players. Jordan refused to cross the picket line and wanted to escape any coercion or media scrutiny. So on March second nineteen ninety five Jordan packed up his belongings and left baseball for good. Meanwhile during Jordan's absence, the Bulls looked at twenty nine year olds Scottie. Pippen to lead the small forward was an integral part of the teams three championships. But when Jordan had been on the court, his shadow was hard to escape. It was finally Pippen's time to be the star and build his own legacy or so he thought instead Bulls General Manager Jerry Krause touted twenty six year old Tony coup coach a rookie from Croatia as the team's new star Pippen quietly grew resentful and he reached his breaking point during the nineteen ninety-four. Playoffs. On May Thirteenth Nineteen ninety-four the Bulls in Knicks were tied at one hundred and two points. Only one point eight seconds remained on the clock at Chicago Stadium. The Knicks claimed the first two victories of the Eastern Conference finals the Bulls needed this win to quell the talk about how the team was only successful because of Jordan. During the time out coach Phil Jackson devised a play that setup coup coach to take the final shot who coach had sunk several buzzer beating baskets during the regular season. But pippin took offence he saw himself as the most dangerous player on the Bulls and thought he should get the shot. Pippen reportedly told Jackson. I'm. Tired of. This. He sat on the bench as his teammates returned to the court for the final second they called out for him to join. Pippen shook his head and refused. Coup coach made the game winning shot, but the media didn't care. They wanted to know why pippen was benched in the final second. It was proof. Pippen was indeed the star this small moment plagued him for the rest of the season. His reputation with his teammates fans and the media was tarnished pippen eventually apologized to his teammates. Despite the win, the Bulls lost to the Knicks, the rest of the series, their bid for a fourth NBA championship and their first without Jordan fell short. It was more evident than ever the bulls needed. Jordan in order to win. Luckily, the superstar was ready to make a comeback. In March of Nineteen, ninety, five, Jordan started attending practices with the Chicago Bulls, his teammates and the media wondered is Jordan coming back to basketball an answer finally arrived on March Eighteenth Nineteen. ninety-five. Jordan issued a short statement to the sports media via fax. I'm back. The message was simple but monumental Jordan. Wanted to be back on the roster and the NBA was glad to oblige he returned to his former team and the Bulls honored his old three point eight, million dollar a year contract on the court. Jordan slid back into the lineup and helped the team rebound from tough season. But reuniting Jordan with twenty nine year old Scotty Pippin on the court didn't recreate the championship winning magic had. The Bulls advanced to the NBA playoffs in late April one, thousand, nine, hundred five but were defeated by the Orlando Magic on May eighteenth nine thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five. After the loss, the Bulls lineup was retooled during the off season power forward horace grant's contract wasn't renewed and the team searched for a new front court player. On October third. Nineteen ninety-five the team acquired the bombastic controversial Dennis Rodman, the thirty four year old was the NBA's best rebounder. But adding Rodman to the Bulls was a huge risk because he was better known for his wild antics off the court. Rodman bleached his hair blond partied all the time and received fines for headbutting several players. He famously dated pop singer Madonna for two months in Nineteen ninety-four and claimed she paid him to million dollars to impregnate her during the nineteen ninety four season the San Antonio Spurs paid Rodman two point five, million dollars to play. But he spent the majority of the time making trouble from throwing a bag of ice at his coach to arguing with refs in getting adjusted from games. By.

After.

The nineteen ninety-three offseason was one allocated to damage control in July nineteen ninety-three Jordan famously told journalists Connie Chung in an interview, I can stop gambling I have a competition problem. Jordan denied he had an addiction though the media and fans speculated otherwise he resented the scrutiny more than ever as it encroached on his endorsement deals, he hadn't lost any of his brand spokesperson. But he was on shaky ground. The media frenzy caused Jordan to further contemplate his retirement with his father James. The Jordan.

Amidst his grief Jordan was insulted that people were blaming him for his father's death. He emphatically denied any connection between the two subjects. Despite his comments, the media relentlessly probed this theory in August of nineteen ninety-three. Newspapers and tabloids ran headlines like is Michael Somehow tied to DADS bizarre death. Mentions of Jordan's gambling were inserted into every story on his father's passing including when two suspects were arrested and charged with the murder. The last straw though was when federal investigators admitted they were looking into the theory. The conspiracy had taken on a life of its own Jordan was deeply hurt and his trust in the media fell to an all-time low. By October sixth. Nineteen Ninety three thirty year old Jordan.

"In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the struggling Chicago Bulls were in need of a superstar after the team failed to qualify for the playoffs they looked to their next season. If they could secure someone big in the NBA draft, they might just turn things around. On June nineteenth the Bulls drafted a talented twenty one year old shooting guard named Michael Jordan but Jordan wasn't at New York City's Madison Square Garden to pose for the traditional draft night photos he was training for the nineteen eighty four summer Olympics. In Los Angeles with the USA basketball team back then the International Basketball Federation did NOT ALLOW PROFESSIONAL NBA players to compete in the Games so team USA was mostly composed of college basketball stars like Jordan though he'd already won an NC double a. Ship with University of North Carolina Tar heels. Jordan wasn't content to hang back in the college league. He left school a year early to go pro and he'd start building his fame long before he joined the Bulls. Throughout the nineteen eighty-four Olympics. Jordan led the talented team in scoring and dazzled TV viewers at home. His Slam dunks defied gravity to watch him play was a show unlike any other and fans loved every minute of it.

This isn't entirely true according to the Chicago Tribune the shoes Jordan war during the nineteen eighty five season were just regular Nike sneakers as the Real Air Jordans were still in the process of being manufactured but Nike capitalized on the controversy anyway. Ads for the sneakers told those at home that the real reason the NBA band, the shoe was because it was so revolutionary aside from the Air Jordans debacle Jordan grew frustrated for other reasons. The Detroit Pistons kept beating the Bulls in the playoffs squashing his chances of championship glory. But soon to keep people arrived in Chicago that made all the difference small forward Scottie Pippen and head coach Phil Jackson. Pippen was Jordan's favourite teammate and Jackson had a plan to overcome Detroit the triangle offense with it. Jordan Pippen and the Bulls became absolutely unstoppable in the nineties. The Bulls finally beat Detroit in the one, thousand, nine, hundred, one playoffs and advanced to the NBA finals for the first time in franchise history. But the Bulls next opponent was none other than the winningest team of the nineteen eighties the Los Angeles Lakers. Twenty eight year old was pitted against one of his idols thirty one year old Lakers superstar Irvin Magic Johnson Jordan versus Johnson was basketball's David vs Goliath. Defying all expectations, the Bulls beat the Lakers winning its first. NBA Championship on June twelfth. Nineteen ninety-one once the champagne and confetti were gone Jordan and the Bulls were ready to defend their title against Johnson, the Lakers and the rest of the League. The Bulls wanted to make the statement that they were not a fluke. But right before the nineteen ninety, one, nineteen, ninety-two season, and the rematches that would come with it. Johnson was missing from an October preseason exhibition game hosted by the Utah Jazz. Johnson was on his way back to Los Angeles at the request of Lakers management. The results from his routine physical exam were in. And he'd failed. It didn't make sense to the team Johnson was healthy and in his prime. But on October Twenty Fifth Nineteen ninety-one. The Lakers doctor told Johnson the news. He was HIV positive. This would soon progress into eights. Back in the early nineteen, ninety s people who contracted HIV had little hope for survival long-term drug treatments for the virus didn't exist yet in nineteen, ninety-one, ten, million people worldwide contracted HIV and one million were Americans. The Myth that HIV was a game end sexually transmitted disease didn't help either in fact, even in the nineties, the public still widely misunderstood HIV. So the stigma continued even as heterosexual men women and babies contracted through blood transfusions and breastfeeding. Because there was still so much unknown about the disease. The doctors advised Johnson to stop playing basketball to protect his own immune system and his teammates the Lakers star agreed. On November Seventh Nineteen ninety-one, the thirty, two year old Johnson announced his retirement and revealed his HIV status at a Los Angeles press conference. He assured reporters that his pregnant wife Cookie, and their unborn child did not have the virus in retiring Johnson was trading one position of leadership. For another he pledged to become an advocate for V and shatter the stigma. Surrounding it naturally news of the most high profile heterosexual celebrity with HIV sent shockwaves around the sports world and beyond Johnson's Lakers, teammates and fans worried his time was limited. But in just a few weeks, public concern turned into wild speculation without a statement from Johnson on how he contracted the virus rumors swirled that he was secretly gay or bisexual but to. Be, an advocate in Johnson's mind meant telling the truth no matter. How uncomfortable a few months later thirty, two year old Johnson admitted on ABC's Primetime live that he had harems of women during the height of the Lakers one, thousand, nine, hundred eighties success he engaged in sex with them in the locker room right after games whose admissions tarnished his once wholesome. Image. But Johnson wanted to own up to his mistakes in his autobiography. My Life Johnson acknowledged his sexual debauchery was how he got infected but he still didn't know who it came from. It didn't matter though the former Lakers player moved past being the NBA's wholesome hero and embraced his new image a man working hard to reform himself and the HIV. Stigma. Meanwhile, basketball needed a new hero and Michael Jordan stepped up to that role. He was expected to be the perfect basketball player, the smiling product spokesperson and a heroic figure to everyone at all times. What could possibly go wrong.

"Do now is is coming out on digital platforms do so these are the kind of creative groups that we found like on almost every project. Two of these four groups were involved in everything we did on social. So rather than working kind of separate departments, we decided we're going to kind of align when it comes to content So what we do there is like from the beginning stages whether you're just brainstorming idea to when you're executing it to win. You're distributing it all the way down to when you're analyzing. How did it do? All these teams are involved. So it's not a digital project that we're asking help for from that. It's not a a video team project that we're seeing for the first time. Right before it's ready to be distributed, were all kind of on the same page making content and I think that's resulted in us being a lot more thoughtful in our process, a lot more thoughtful in her outputs and. Really made the organization at large, feel like content belongs to all of us in natural son one team. So we actually don't have anyone on the team anymore with social media in their title. We think content obviously lives beyond social media on our website. It's on our APP. It's even something we can repurpose on the scoreboard during. Games, when we have full stadiums in the glory days, right? So there's there's so many ways that content affects the organization. It's become so much more thoughtful process. We also sat down last year when we first convened as this content studio group and we talked about like what is important to us, right? Like what do we want our voices to sound like? What would we want the Bulls to be saying what we want the Bulls to feel like? Weak got a room and just hammered out what we thought was important to us in. Kind of attendance of of the Bulls Voice, So everyone had a hand in that. That's not something that the digital team or the social team came and told everyone. This is what the Bulls are going to sound like. We all sat down and talked through. So it's been a very purposeful changing something that we've We've been working towards for a long time. I'm really happy with his first year of that went on, but will continue to evolve as the industry. It's it's amazing to hear how social is everywhere. We've long predicted that even in my book The. Now Revolution which was published almost ten years ago. We said there that you know eventually there won't be any social media people because it will be so commonplace, it would be like having a radio department in an agency you're like, well, that's weird or having some excel department it just it just is. It's oxygen. Oxygen and always around you as opposed to water that you have to go seek out and it's incredible that it's actually happening at the Bulls as I understand it, the the Bulls are the third most followed team in all of North American professionals, which extraordinary. So obviously, you're doing a great job with all the official bulls accounts but I think it'd be interesting for social pros listeners to understand Luca that you've got a bunch of other accounts to other than just like at bowls, right. You've got the archive account and the mascot account like a bunch of other sort of satellite accounts that is run as talking about that. Totally So this was actually in the last couple of years has become more focus for us. So we we recognize that the bulls main account is hugely followed I. Think we have to thank Mr. Number, twenty three for a lot of that A big part of our audience on our main accounts actually comes internationally seventy percent of people who follow us on. Social. don't even live in the US so. So we we recognize huge international following like the Bulls are not just Chicago team like they are. You know ended ubiquitous everywhere. Right. So we recognize the power of that in our main accounts but we we also think that there's a lot of things within what we call the Bulls Universe that gives opportunities to talk to her fans in a different way or give people a different experience with team. So. About a year ago, we launched Bowls Archive. We have these We had this room in the United Center that's kind of like that corner where they had all these undeveloped photos of the championship years from the official team photographer in those days, they came on like little slides, right like in. You had to digitize them just to get them on digital. So there's these physical slides and we would take people on towards the United. Center. We would show them. The. We would show them this room and people will be like, oh. My God. Like some of these photos like no one's ever seen before. So for while we're like, Hey, we should really do something with this in about a year ago. We decided to take the initiative just like, Hey, like let's launch archive account. Just kind of lets US showcase some of these photos in it's it's actually like not super simple to get these in digital format. Crazy machine called like the digitize five thousand or something, and it's like super loud network. Put the slides end to digitize it. So you'd have to manually do a lot of work to get there, but you're really giving people something. They can't see like they haven't seen on getty images or they haven't seen millions of magazines so. We started that on facebook and twitter. That's been. You know, obviously, we know that's going to be a smaller audience than our main account, but the engagement rate is actually higher than the one that we have on our meeting account. So the people who are falling are actually super involved in it. I think a lot of seeker heads really like it because you're seeing shoes like guys were wearing. It gives us just a different way to play similarly you mention. That the bowl, for example, like Benny is probably one of the most famous if nothing most famous mascots in sports, he over the a long period of time as established himself as a as a character as somebody who I think everyone loves and respects his sometimes the most famous person at the Bulls, right? So. That's an asset that doesn't change venues. He's never gonNA be traded than he's never gonna be like, that's that's part of us now..

He made it out of the first round of the playoffs. At one time, it's true people talking about it. He did win exactly one defensive player of the year before he became better than the. Best defender of his generation as I don't think it's a stretch to say. Now, the hardware certainly points to that. Yeah. So. Our, I didn't see that.
