Is that what you were like. As a player i mean were you the kind of or were you like out there. Trash talking and no and demonstrating the way that dress to one thing. I love intense. I mean not to say that. I didn't get in scuffles word matches but if you check the percentages i didn't i didn't play well in those instances so i kinda i kinda let the trash talkers do their thing and understood who i was. I'm the guy reading books before gain. That's who i am that gets paired. I'm in the zone. You don't wanna mess with me on this court right. Was it weird going from toronto. Were you.

I can see so you don't have any aspect of your life where you get to the sort of work that out. I never had never did anything for me. I i'm too much of a competitor. You know so when we start competing. Yeah i don't wanna be mad. I don't wanna feel this.

I'm sure that has to be a lot of guys experience right. Yeah if you didn't think about those things but like wow. How cool is that. That people smile when they see me. Or if we've known each other and you smile when you see me that's invaluable you know. Owen wilson another dallas. Boy i read an interview with him. One time in the in the interviewer said do you get sick. People recognizing you and he's like he's like you know. Sometimes it can get a lot. But i just think like wow i just by seeing people smile. It's kind of like a superpower like what a great way to look at it like. That's that's exactly what you're saying like to have the effect on people that makes them immediately smile.

That's a huge bet on me. Like i respect that someone has entrusted me with millions of dollars and i have colleagues that it's always like us against them like trying to make me do this. They're trying to make me do that in if i could. Just do my own thing. And i'm like yeah but you're not acknowledging someone's gotta give you the twenty five million like i've always been kind of at peace with that but there's other people that feel really kind of confined by that and it sounds a little bit like you except that it is a business on some level. Hell yeah man. You always have to find that balance of business and personal life right. Yeah but once you sign your name on the line. I was one of the things i had learned about. Contracts just like people signed on a contract and and be like well. You're not letting me be who i am like. Yeah 'cause you sign a contract so it is what it is. Yep you are an employee for us.

"Like yeah this outfit and i'm trying to not work if i tuck in my shirt now i think so. Often we come to know basketball players at their peak when they are in the nba and things have worked out and the life is very appealing. We know everyone likes this person. Women love this person. But i have to imagine. It's not that way till it's that way like if you're like six eleven in highschool so i got to imagine like the whole time you must feel so other often growing up being. I'm sure you had to be shit. Like i was and just. It's not a great until it's great luck. That's kinda where basketball came in no matter how much i didn't fit in. I knew that it was hope for better tomorrow. So yeah it's like you can call me tall and lanky and that's funny. You used the word lanky had no you're l. and lanky that's kind of like you have to learn to accept that word right. It's not what dudes aiming to be. Lanky lanky no. I'm working out of twelve growing so fast. And kinda just getting to a point of accepting that in seeing the motto. For what i want to be later. I was obsessed with basketball. I have posters of cagey and kobe in jordan and all the grates on my wall and so even when i didn't fit in i felt i was going somewhere else with it. Of course that don't fit in. Because i'm going over here. That was my attitude. Let's talk k. G. for one second but i want to set it up in that so he was my favorite as well. And i think it's because so i still have my physicals from eighth grade basketball in ninth grade basketball so eighth grade basketball. I was five eleven in one. Fifty nine ninth grade basketball. I was six three in one forty nine. I had fucking lost ten pounds in game four inches. So i was just a rake i mean it was disastrous and i think i will always identify what that guy no matter how big and so kevin garnett to me the reason he captivated me in so many ways. He's just the most elegant basketball player ever but he was lanky as a motherfucker in he wore. The whole thing was so much swagger. Even i remember watching the playoffs. They would do these behind the scenes. Like oh what are you doing on the days up. Well he was always getting manicures and route to be getting medicare. And i love this. This is so him and it so attractive. What drew you to kevin. It was on a level of basketball. I the personality of course came second. But when i saw the highlights the only way you could see highlights back in the day you remember inside stuff. Yeah yeah so like. You had to watch inside stuff on saturday mornings. That was the only way i could see. Nba unless you wanna watch the mavericks on channel. Twenty seven and now wasn't yeah wasn't mavericks doing too well. Lou was never the basketball. You wanna see as a child. So like i got to a point where okay. I got to wake up every saturday morning. The csi stuff. And i saw they were showing highlights and do these profiles and he was long lanky blocking shots so it was one highlight in particular. He block the shot. Got the rebound took a couple. Dribbles kicked it up to a guard. They gave it back in. He dumped it and yelled at the crowd. And as a kid is like you're seeing the future. Yeah just like everything happens and nobody can tell you anything else. That's what i wanna be. I wanna do that now. Was like that moment for me. There was kind of like a paradigm which was at that time with kevin garnett. You had shaquille o'neal so teams generally wanted this..

The Importance of 'Enjoying the Process' With Chris Bosh
"In terms of playing every game like it's your last. You have a quote in the book from the movie. Sandlot quotas at some point in your childhood. You and your friends went outside to play together for the last time. And nobody knew it. Their quotas so powerful for me because he's dabbling. I grew up on that movie practically. And i mean that was. That was my truth as a part of my truth in my career. You know alluding back to that game news. Game against the spurs didn't really do too well other things were on my mind and so yeah went out there. I play the game. I just spent that evening trying to get better trying to push my teammates to get better trying to move a step closer to accomplish our goals but most importantly going out there and enjoying when i do and that was the last time that i played there were no you know t shirts made there was. No you know My good friend to wang way he had this awesome thing called the last dance. Hit was his final season. And i mean they did it up and and he was able to just really really take everything in and enjoy it for the last time you know it. Nothing like that in the lesson that i took from that was pretty much like i told you do enjoy the process. Enjoy doing the work that you put in enjoy if you're on a team hopefully you're in a position to where you're in a good environment. You know appreciate that. Appreciate those things that you have in the opportunity that you have because you might not always have it so i've always taken it to heart.
NBA Legend Chris Bosh on the Sacrifices Needed to Achieve Greatness
"The way that you're able to dissect what it takes to be great. And i want to start with the notion of talent is not enough That was one of the things. I found super profound in the book. What does it mean. The talent isn't enough. And how do you achieve greatness if you can't just rely on talent well it's kind of one of those on thanks you know and i'm so glad that you know we're able to have this conversation because i feel that i'm one of those guys to kind of bridge the gap To help people understand the game of basketball a little more and not the not descendants. somebody's going to be a die hard right away but there are simple kind of connections a man that i think we're really you know i've talked to people in in seeing the light. Come on and say okay. you know. that's how it is you know usually We always had saying In the nba. You play hard. You give yourself a chance in my in my career. I had so many instances. I've had hundreds of teammates and in that you always have an interesting scenario where you see the difference between talent hard work of course if you're a talented hard worker than if you put the talent went to work men been been now. We're talking but i've seen so many times in so many people not reach their potential only because they didn't want to do the work. The talent was there I think even sometimes that love for the game with a love for the field that they're doing is they're but you have to combine it with that Toughness and artwork. And you know. There's no cheating the process You know i sometimes what is the process. Yes Doing things every day so i always like to work backwards. So for instance. If i'm a basketball player. And i want to be a better shooter. Well i say okay. I want to be a better shooter. That is my goal. What do i have to do. Daily to ensure that i can become a better shooter. Some people would say well you need to teach not necessarily so you'd have to sometimes go and seek the information put in the work that could be a part of One of the days of the process to becoming a better shooter. So i always try to make sure that i put my work in myself. Only because you how many people you know lead their talent on the table so to speak.
Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals
"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited
LeBron James and the Miami Heat: From Champions to Breakup to NBA Finals Opponents
"Brian Windhorst you have spent I think the last decade of your life trying to establish successfully establishing by the way that you are a lot more than the Lebron guy after knowing and covering him longer than any other human being in our business dating back to your high school days in Akron and then even through the time you famously up and moved to Miami to cover him there. So I just want to begin by apologising for pulling you back into the orbit of the same son we've been worshiping for now seventeen years well I wouldn't be here but for Lebron I, extraordinarily fortunate to meet him when He. Was Fourteen years old his move to Miami in open the door for me to come to ESPN. So I, Oh, Lebron immensely, and while all of us want to spread our wings as we get older certainly would never shy away from or or tire from looking at this this guy because he's been influential character in my life and thankfully and influential character in the history of the NBA. Yeah. That was incredibly well said but now it's time to get super messy because in this case in this series where there are so many different interesting storylines and angles, it does feel like past might be prologue. I want to go back ten years now. It is July ninth, two, thousand and ten and Lebron James is introduced to heat fans for the first time along with Dwayne Wade and Chris. Bosh introduced to the NBA really for the first time as this big three and Lebron is asked about his plan for winning championships in Miami. Three kings came down here to win championships. Not One championship to Lebron. Tell us about that not too on. Now. Now by. Not. Fix. So at that moment. How did the Miami Heat See Lebron era playing out? Pat Riley thought that that was. The Greatest Dynasty team that he had ever been able to be a part of. Better than magic and Kareem and James Worthy. Better. Than Shack and Dwayne Wade better than the hopeful teams that he had with the next with Patrick Ewing and Allan Houston John starks. He thought this was one of the greatest teams in the history of the NBA. He saw a horizon for a decade where they would be in the finals year after year after year and maybe they wouldn't win it every year and maybe they wouldn't win five six or seven Lebron said, but they would rack up. It was going to be his sunset team. He was going to ride this dynasty out and then go into the sunset and it was an incredible for years. It was one of the most prolific four year runs in the history of the NBA, but it wasn't that dynasty and Pat. Riley, has never one hundred percent ever gotten over.

Vegas bullish on Knicks' summer, '20 title odds
"You go to ask because the NBA playoffs are going on. And of course, always so much interest. Not only in the actual games. But what goes on off the floor in the off season, which is coming up. This summer Vegas seems pretty high on the Knicks chances of landings from free agents. Because is this. The Knicks have opened at sixteen to one to win the twenty twenty championship. Well, it's a classic case of Fulbe wants save on the. Twice on me. You know, it's it goes back to two thousand eleven when we hadn't seen this kind of free agent movement. Like, we do now LeBron summer two thousand ten Chris Bosh and Wade in Miami. And the books were hung out the dry ridiculous. So now that we've seen it. And we saw to rank goes boyer's oddsmakers are not going to be caught off guard again, they know better, and it's important to realize the futures market or the long shot odds they are one way betting, which means you can just bet twelve to one sixteen to one whatever it is. It's not like a point spread we can both sides minus three plus three now. So if you're only putting up a one way bet, but you can't bet Knicks not win the title, you're gonna air on the side of caution. Now, these sports do to make it fair to give some decent value. But with all that being said there in the business of making money so knowing that it's not too bad. They're gonna put up lower odds in Durant doesn't sign or they don't get to stars then they'll adjust accordingly, but it's fun for tea or betters players take a shot and make some wagers create interest. But they're not going to be held liable. They're reading the same. You know, wards Twitter that we are and everyone they're not dumb. I don't know. Doug. I mean, you get kyri you get Kevin Durant and Zion. Williamson. We know he's going to be a Nick. I think those odds are actually not I think they're good. I think it's actually a good bet to take at this point because they're so going to be shoe
"chris bosh" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"They were wherever it was live or wherever it is that Mr. Chow, and he celebrated the entire night, and he was driving in just sort of oblivious to what the the national blowback was of the super team that was forming. He thought it was all a good thing. And after the celebration that they didn't even really have a hand in planning at all they didn't know what was happening until an hour before which is weird because like they were giving. Tickets away for the this thing, but they had no idea they were just putting pen to paper sign in these contracts. They go out there. Chris Bosh, absolutely loves it. And then he thinks oh, man, we're the most popular team in the NBA, and it's the exact opposite. And it sort of smacked him in the face, a great was that though just that idea that that they thought that they were going to be celebrated in he wanted so great talking about that night and just like they're in their uniforms. They're signing their contracts. They don't know. What's happening? Exactly. And next thing they know hydraulics, and and Bosch was laughing because LeBron and Dwayne tried to play it cool turning around. But all three of them just sort of got hit with a force field of this Miami perfumed arrogance hit him in the face. And so they couldn't smell that the rest of America was urinating on. Yeah. It was only until after that he saw people burning LeBron's jersey. And he was like, well, we we might have a problem here. So he was incredibly honest in this part. One part two's coming your way next week. But part one. Covers a year. One San Antonio stuff. The night of the decision, and we get into what this jersey retirement today means to Chris Bosh. It's a it's I'm so happy as a Miami Heat fan that the Miami Heat have repaired this relationship considering the salary caps. Well, maybe forty and slip considering the salary crap that the Miami Heat are dealing with right now. All Pat Riley, really has his rebuilding this reputation that the Miami Heat had a first class and always being in the conversation. They haven't been in the rooms lately haven't been seriously considered by these free agents. So getting back in the good graces of guys like Chris Bosh? I think goes a long way I thought something else that was interesting in the south beach session, Mike you remember before Boston you remember? How scared you were just how scared you were before.
NBA, Depression and Rosen discussed on The Undefeated
"PIN senior writer, Jackie MacMullan sat down with several NBA players to talk about mental health in the NBA, Chris, Bosh, Kevin love tomorrow, Rosen, and Paul Pierce to name just a few have opened up about their struggles with depression and anxiety then be has now hired Dr William Param as its first director of mental health and wellness. Should this prompt the NBA to have some sort of mental health policy or plan for players struggling with these issues t start with you? I would say absolutely. Self care is just as important as physical care and treatment. And to be honest, it just seems logical that players NBA NFL any professional sport that athletes would kind of feel this amount of pressure to wear dealing with depression and anxiety seems like it's something that could logically happen. I mean, you've got pressure from your. Teammates, you got pressure from the fans with social media. They're always like direct access pressure to you all the time. You got pressure from your family. They don't see you as often or have expectations for you and your downtime. You get pressure from executives, especially mentioned into Doron Dhamar under Rosen, who thought that he had some form of transfer loyalty with people in the Toronto organization and then ends up being traded. So there's there and then they have pressure from themselves. I'm sure. I mean, everyone has expectations of themselves. I mean, we're not even athletes in. I'm pretty sure all of us on this podcast, have expectations for ourselves and how we feel when we don't meet them. So it makes a lot of sense that there would be that there will be mental health struggles among athletes. And so I do think it's very important for the NBA to have done. This, I think is also important to make sure that there's protection for them for the players for this kind of thing. Because as I've been reading, I've seen that owners have been saying that if this is something that we do that they want to have. Access to the records. And as you know, most medical records in some form are are confidential, and I think that in their mind, I think the argument is, you know, we have access to the players physical record, so we're able to make decisions on what we wanna do based on a player's physical health. We should also do the same for someone's mental health, and I think that's where I probably disagree with the owners in that sense because a lot of times having that confidentiality is what helps you to progress in what helps you to get
Kevin Durant to sign one-and-one deal with Golden State Warriors
"The nba have remained as is you have kevin durant signing a one in one deal with the golden state warriors said essentially keeps their quote unquote death lineup where the hamptons five hour you want to call it intact for another season so we can expect the golden state warriors to get back to the nba finals i'm guessing the question for the warriors is the same thing that lebron james dealt with with dwayne wade and chris bosh with the heat sustaining that success over the course of the regular season and doing it again in the playoffs can be mentally taxing the golden state warriors very open about that with kevin durant saying the first year he was in golden state was a honeymoon season everything was fun it wasn't so much fun the following year but because the nba is so obsessed with speculation this one in one gives a max deals it allows the golden state warriors keep most most of us intact but it starts to speculation for twenty nineteen as to where he could end up so we're not done with this domino effect of who's going where based on kevin durant new contract deals like this that continue to make the nba the greatest league in the world mingka's you've got i it's the storylines tell an off on the court but superstars becoming free agents every year we were going gonna do this dance next year it's going to be kevin durant where's he going the offs is far more compelling than the actual season and for a for a free league that is very entertaining on the court that is saying something incredible and so look at the league gets it right durant yeah no longterm deal we'll be back here twelve months from now that's a win win for everyone including nba fans who love the drama the nba regular season is really just a preseason for free agency and if we're being honest that's all it is we're just we're just biding our time until we get to the real fun stuff chris paul's can stay with the houston rockets that's again one of those foregone conclusions houston rockets i mean they're just one game away from making the nba finals injuries also played into that so they have to feel good about where they were totally understand why they wanna keep going that direction and it also puts the bed the speculation that i saw during the regular season that lebron james could end up in houston they just don't have the space for it lebron james he's in l a he's going to have his conversations he's only going to have a phone conversation with the cleveland cavaliers my guess is he's gonna talk with the lakers i know philadelphia's also in that mix because of the cap because of how teams have stayed put in certain in certain situations like houston or in the case of oklahoma city with paul george there's really only three teams that would make a lot of sense to them in the east and if lebron james wants to get back to the finals the easiest path back to the finals then he's going to stay in the east despite the fact that dan gilbert has said through brian windhorst reporting and stephen a smith backing it up even though dan gilbert the owner of the cavaliers matt says he looks forward to try to build a championship team without lebron james dude you already had that opportunity once you got a couple of first round picks you never made the playoffs so they can get their issues aside and come back together for another season potentially because they're not going to get back to the playoffs without lebron james and if lebron james wants to get back to the finals his easiest path is not through the west with rebuilding with la it's back in cleveland or potentially something like philadelphia it's it's interesting because is it about getting back to the finals is it is it about that or is about winning a championship and and that's something that lebron james is is going to have to figure out because they saw this year that yeah they were how close i think he has to examine how close were we really to winning an nba championship sheriff gerald smith doesn't call that time out actually puts a back end and their one one going back to cleveland how different is the series i think dan gilbert i think that's just posturing that of just knowing the.
Kevin Love: From hero to zero?
"No pun intended but has anyone fallen from being when he was traded to cleveland the perfect fit for lebron james i'm yeah that was the buzz every nba mark would come out and say oh this guy we thought chris bosh idelson almost knocking my microphone over we thought chris bosh was the perfect fit for lebron james but no no no it's kevin love and now here we are four years later in what is kevin love he's garbage everyone's making he needs to go he's gone from hero to zero about as fast as any player i think we've seen in the nba this is going to be great and by the way why is it going to be great when he comes to cleveland and there's going to be a diet as the golden state gets one of my that's not going to be very good that's horrible you know well i think that gets back to just maybe it's it's a personal feel i did greatness if my team can't win as long as it's not the chiefs or the broncos.
