"Two fights like two or three at one fifty four so why not drop seven more pounds and she said she can do it if she says she can do it and she feels comfortable about it maybe have one fighting between and then yes then yes but to go down down that way divisions just for your first fight and it's gonna be a the biggest fight of your career. It's just. I don't like the idea of it because then you have an excuse. I lost too much weight and then we all get robbed of something we we get robbed of her finding out our best all right. Let's move onto the other fight this weekend. That fight is over on showtime. You've got david. Ben evita's returning to the ring is first fight since last. Summer's first fight since losing his super middleweight championship. On the scale but evita's is going to stay at one hundred sixty eight pounds. He's taking was basically a stay. Busy fight against ronald ellis bennett. Vitas clearly has talent. He is a very talented twenty-three-year-old fast hands power-punching what i question would benefit as sergio discipline discipline commitment. Right he'd had question we add some of the outside the ring stuff with the drug issue that cost him his title the first time around and the last time he was what three pounds overweight for the fight against angulo. Talk to me about that. like how how worried would you be about bellavia. Dez is commitment to becoming living up to the talent that he has if you knew the history of fighters in the history of great fighters and the way we live in the way we grew up. you know. That's not that's not. That's not something new. The greatest fighters have the worst outside life. You know mike tyson. You know the the jake. Lamotta roberto duran oscar de la hoya. I can go on and on sergio mora. I just throw my name in the early. No no no but see. Here's the thing and we we come from a place of of when we reach something we reach a level you want to enjoy the fruits of our labor and sometimes we enjoy it too much and sometimes fruits branch out into something illegal But that's what we worked so hard for man and and david benedetta says is reaping those rewards and if he can if he can really bring back the things that got in there he can be special i. I really don't put too much into the what he did wrong. He's a champion undefeated. He feels unstoppable right now. Every champions been through there Now he's getting to the point where he needs to make a decision are you. Are you going to try to do something great. Are you content with what you accomplished. And that's just something that he has to answer for himself but as far as the bad habits go every great champion has had bad. Habits is actually will makes you great. Looking at manny pacquiao. Freddie roach just remembered freddie roach said many pactel started losing once. He stopped gambling. Womanizing and drinking freddie roasts that. Maybe you should go back to doing all that. And that was a great quote. And i'm glad i remembered it because that's exactly what i'm trying to say chris. Mannix every great champion has great vices. And that's what makes them do the crazy stuff they do a little bit misleading to think the paquito starting to lose weight. Stop campbell's freddie roads. Quote i get it i get it but i think patio at some other issues getting a little bit older and running into a big left hand from one. Well mark has probably changed the course of a fight that he was winning the the outside the ring stuff the drug issue less concerned to me now. That was now at least but not making weight and especially when the stakes were that high like you. Keep that title..

The purse bid for taffy lopez versus jorge campos. Says the reason wasn't because a deal had been struck it was because there's a snowstorm headed for new jersey and they apparently didn't want to go through with it and the snowstorm now at our understand why that's relevant to me. It's going to be a virtual purse but anyway so i don't know why you need that but good. Sorry interrupt you. Chris you actually can go to you can.

I've been getting updates on my phone all day from my townhouse development everything about moving snow and all kinds of stuff so so there is a pretty big storm coming tomorrow. It might be a state of emergency just to keep people off the roads and everything so. I think being that you're able to to go to the they had to do it legally just postponed. It's only been postponed until tuesday. It's not like it's been postponed for a couple of weeks or anything..

"This relationships can subscribe for the best weekly nba content. These two are capable of. What does that mean could be. The best duo. I'll see how you can beat here. They are chris mannix and howard back medics back back. What up mr beck mannix our sir. So howard i know you wrote eloquently about your father in the new york times Just a couple of weeks back my question for you though looking back on your relationship with your dad. Did he ever tweet at your employer to fire you the reference. Of course marvin bagley. Who was the father of the coach bag. The father of marvin bagley player with the sacramento. Kings tweeting out that these sacrimento kings should trade marvin bagley. So did your dad ever do anything like that. No i'm not sure firing trading or this or quite the same. But i guess that's the only analogy we have No i will say this though. My dad was a twitter lurker and was not a prolific. Tweeter i think he just followed me and maybe you know some news organizations whatever and every so often he would hit me with something usually a tweet me so like i like i'd make some reference to something like a music like a song and he would like like make fun of me or whatever they mocked me on there so but the but nobody would have known that was even him so he did not cross the kind of boundaries that marvin bagley his father. Marvin bagley junior not to be confused with marvin bagley heard. I never put in that position. And i do not envy marvin bagley of the kings for what his father the position. He put him in there anymore. Kings story than that i mean. Could that happened to anyone. But sacramento i mean not only. Does marvin bagley tweet. Trade my son then you have. Darren fox his father saying trade him. Dad's getting involved on social media. Meanwhile luke walton sitting there would be like. Oh god this is starting already like. We can't give it like six weeks for us to collapse in the. I mean you think the the obvious solution is that bill walton needs to weigh in. Oh god i mean if we're gonna give fathers of flares sniping about the team at about each other possibly might as well have the coaches father who look bill. I would listen on any topic anyway..

Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?

"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years

"And he's got a lot to lose financially so unless you have some concrete proof that that would shut that a legal perspective. I would shut that down. But he's he's not listening to anyone. And i don't know where he's getting some of this stuff from but it's just it's kinda sad really. I mean to see a guy who had a in the of course fans have their favorite fighters in the cesspool. That is the the boxing scene comments section sometimes in the forums and they have their favorites and they take shots at each other. That's also that's that's my twitter feed tuckey. That's of course we all. We all know that. Chris mannix is the devil and a piece of this understand. Those just knicks fans adam. Ob topping baby. But but what i'll say is i you know. I think the only thing wilder was had a good reputation as a person before except for the thing about saying to kill the best dumb. And you don't want on your. Because i know someone really well personally who has killed someone in the rain and i still talk to him. This day it happened almost twenty years ago and it's with him every single day. You don't forget that he'll someone in the ring. So i don't know why he would have ever said said that once and fifty times but going down a path here chris i just what is he hoping to gain by just is he hoping to go at this point. Tyson fury into it by just infuriating him to the I think he. I think it's having the opposite effect because i think tyson fury is now saying screw this guy man. I'm not going to give him the. Despite that he gave me the opportunity twice amok and all the things that he said about me. Call me a cheater in this in that most other stuff. I'm not going to give him the satisfaction now. And i don't know if i mentioned this on your podcast before. Maybe it was somewhere else but the problem that the auntie wilder i think primarily should have is with the way that the contracts were constructed in the sense that this third fight is now not happening. That's the problem that he should have. He fought tyson fury twice first time when he's certainly didn't have to second time we're honestly when he didn't have to so he didn't twice ray than has to and now he's.

Kris menace these employed by sports illustrated the informing. This is the crossover nba. Podcast here problem with it. Build a team that can beat of hosted by one. Thank god chris mannix. All right. Howard beck is here joining me on election day after election day. I guess it's still is kind of election week. Howard it america's what this has become right. We're we're now part of the never ending cycle of being glued to cnn or fox msnbc or whatever it is that you you watch out there. But i've had my tv on for the better part of twenty four hours. I don't know about you. i did turn it off to go to sleep. I thought that was the healthy thing to do. I got up. I resisted the urge to turn it on again immediately. But i caved after about twenty minutes. Yeah it's it's a lot. It's a lot i would say this not to you. Know we have other things to talk about of course but you know players driving the black vote especially during the nba's restart if it turns out that. Joe biden wins the presidency. I deserve some credit for it. Right like i mean. If the voter turnout is the key to all this and it sure seems like it's going to set some records when it comes to voter turnout. How players participated in this process. I think we'll be influential. I think a lot of players can feel good about themselves and what they did. During that bubble to to push voting to the forefront as hard as they did will never be able to quantify that of course crazy. We'll never know exactly what the impact was and there were so many different forces at work in this particular election cycle across our country. But d- d- Rise of athlete activism and in the nba case maybe the strongest of any dealings with wnba wnba both But the platform that they have an the way that they've deployed over. The last. several months was incredible. And absolutely that that that's meaningful absolutely that helps you know you'll never know how many more voters there were because of it but listen at a minimum we know that a bunch of nba arenas became voting precincts because nba players pushed hartford in got that commitment if from the arenas that hadn't already they got more commitments in the wake of the wildcat strike in the bubble so you know at a minimum. Nba players contributed to making sure that more people had access to voting precinct amid a pandemic in a safer. Socially distanced place to vote. And in addition to that. Of course lebron james is more than a vote organization trying to you. Know a franchise voters in that battle back against the disenfranchisement of voters especially in the black community. All of that has had some kind of impact will ever know the extent but for sure. Nba players..

"So, there would be some interest in that fight. I think if you if you take the undisputed one, hundred, forty pound champion who against the former undisputed one hundred, forty pound champion that's a that's a good fight I mean that's I offer will be favored, but the other thing too for people to remember Chris. Crawford's now thirty three years old I mean he's you know he's getting toward the back end of his arenas in the back end of his physical prime. And you know some people have wondered whether. His physical prime has been wasted over the last couple of years. Some of it, his fault some of it may be top ranks fall to some of it not. But they want. You would rather have seen him fight the best opponents. He's GonNa fight when he was thirty, not thirty five. So. He's pretty preserve all say that he's not it's all he's been in some knock down drag out slugfests AMIS A good defensive fighters smart fighter. Seems to as best as I can tell, you know live a clean life outside of the ring. So You know. WanNa wear masks I guess doesn't believe that the pandemic Israel but beyond that I think he you know I think he's well preserved. I don't think he's like an old thirty three. So. But he is thirty three. Yeah I mean if feels like we're there's a few guys that we were talking about two meters android in his early thirties now like could we see his prime years wasted just toiling around because he can't get fights and that's The the narrative of this generation where like nobody takes these you know not nobody there are some plenty of five zero is doing. Nobody takes super tough fights in their primers. They don't get enough of those tough fights in their prime and Crawford's the the standard bearer for that type of fighter. But there's more. There's a handful more of them like android that are in that mix, and that's unfortunate. That's. That's One of myriad reasons skeet that we could go on and on about the why boxing is in the position, it's find itself in outside of the mainstream kind of looking in. But that's a whole podcast conversation before let you go hall of fame ballots came this weekend. There are some years Keith when I wonder if I even should submit about at all because I don't really like any of the names on it. There are other years like this one where I'm wondering which highly qualified fighter is going to be on the outside looking in. For people that don't know how the Boxing Hall of. Fame. votes.

"We've talked a lot about what the players lives looks like off the court. They get acclimated to live within the bubble as well as the backdrop of social issues that players have used this opportunity to keep in the public discourse. It's an interesting complex situation further complicated by the fact that as all of this on fault, NBA Games will need to be played. What kind of product will the NBA Pudding on the courts at the ESPN wide? World of Sports Complex. How are the players responding to this change and is the leader leaning into the weirdness of the situation or trying to replicate a normal game environment? Chris Mannix and Ben Gulliver breakdown what they've seen so far from the action on the court inside the bump. The basketball experience while certainly unique is not one that's been uncomfortable for many of the players that I've talked to. It certainly is an adjustment as you step out onto the floor, and instead of seeing a crowd you see giant screens that flank the baseline, and behind the scores Table and the bench. But once they get into the flow of the game for a lot of the guys. That I've talked to that have played so far. It just does feel like it's basketball. It won't feel like the normal playoffs, and there won't be fans which is going to be easily the biggest difference right because playoff basketball gets intense. The places get loud. These arenas are gonNA. Have Basically two dozen people in them for the bench. It's becomes part of your responsibility to provide energy for your team, usually that energy is provided by the fans and the people in the building without anybody in the building players. have to be much more vocal and much more supportive of their teams in certain situations, I mean. I talked Lou Williams at the clippers right after his game, he had lost his voice after just one game because he was so loud on that bench, and he said that was something that was going to be an adjustment. They pipe in a lot of Oregon noise or music. There is the digital drumbeat of defense that's played on opposite possessions. There's music played on offensive possessions for the other team as you would often have in NBA arenas. It's not like it's. It's an empty Jim with no sounds. Where you hear everything there's there's going to be a lot that's covered. It's probably intentional. You know by the by the NBA with the music in the background. The League is still in an experimental phase with all this trying to see what works and you know what just comes off as goofy and one of the things they'd like to do is to have fans that are watching these games via zoom for the whole team and have them up on the screen behind the scores table, and maybe all the screens frankly. Watching the game to have it kind of being interactive experience. They think that's going to work. Maybe there be hundreds or thousands of fans of the home team that will be able to watch via zoom like they're in the arena. The format is typical four rounds of best of seven series. There's no home court, but obviously you're gonNA. If you're the better team, you're the higher seed. You're going to get to start quote. Quote Unquote at home they will use a play in game to determine the eighth seed, if it's close enough between the eighth and ninth, see to warrant so that's a little bit of an incentive for some the teams. They invited down here to have a shot at making the playoffs ultimately brought twenty two teams down here. They did that because they wanted to be able to play regular season games and because. Because, they wanted to just increase the total number of games. They were going to try to televise You know obviously more games more money, and that helps pay for this project. those teams you know that are like the six that are currently outside. The playoffs will need to get within four games of the eighth. See to qualify for play. Tournament will have to be the night seat to do that so It's a little bit of a twist. We'll see if that winds up being interesting, or if it winds up all just kind of being a you know a bunch of hot air, but ultimately by mid August, they will be starting a playoffs with sixteen teams like normal eight from each conference, and proceeding forward to crowning a champion, and it will take them until mid. October I all goes right to crown their champion. I think it's going to work. I think it's certainly going to be different, but I think what helps is that the league is not requiring these players to play in cavernous arenas or stadiums i. mean the the digital technology is quite literally on top of them like these screens are right behind where the players sit on the bench. The baseline screens are just ten fifteen feet behind the baskets, so it's a very enclosed space that the league is playing in. That makes it feel almost like a practice facility I think it's GonNa make it a lot easier for these games to be played in for the players. To adjust I mean look they'll be. A, mental hurdle that players that are going to have are going to have to get past especially as we get deeper into this process, but for now it seems like everything is breaking the right way for the NBA whether. It's the the negative testing that's going on or the facilities that they've constructed three of them that are able to house these games..

"So if you really wants to do it and. The stop playing games and do it I signed. I came off what thirteen months maybe fourteen months layoff am my I. write back to fight Billie Joe. So I mean that's all I can really say. I stepped up to the plate to fight him off fourteen months off while he was the WBO world champion. So I mean if he really wants to do it every no. Is it as you sit here, billy. Joe Saunders is one hundred sixty eight pound champion. You are the WTO champ at one sixty. Is something that interests you more. Would you rather defend your title against Saunders or rather move up to get another one a different way class? I wanted I wouldn't I would not mind. Being three time will divisional champion. It a three way division. Six fifty, four, sixteen, Sixty eight. Yeah I have no problem moving up to one six to fight Billie Joe. Because I don't think he can make the way in I. Don't know if he has the might supplements to do it. At a reference to the last supplements, he was taking a before your perhaps. You know the allegedly. Yeah I mean at the end of the day I'm in the I'm the sport to like have my own glory. You know it's also prize by and more than anything. I would love to move up one sixty eight to fight and become the time divisional world champion, no problem by doing that, and also you know would be nice to like you know have a goal in the sense of like a benign, Hopkins. How many times he defended his title. The ended today. It doesn't matter one way class on three different weight classes. If I'm still undefeated, I'm defendant and I'm fighting for about two to me. You know something legendary. Let me, ask you one thing Dimitrius before i. Let you go the. The issue of you mentioned we talked about supplements there and we've seen durell Miller in the news lately, somebody that used to be your stablemate with Eddie hearn matchroom test positive once again for a banned substance. His his opponent was scheduled was born. It was Jerry. Forest and forest is said for life that be it should not be allowed to fight ever again effectively said that if if drill Millard hurt me in the ring that would be murdered. He killed me. That should be called murder. How do you feel about these positive tests, and should there be a set punishment for fighters, risking their lives and we talked about? Testing positive out there. I mean they're definitely should be. You know a great fine. You know maybe some more suspension. You know I mean. I don't ever WanNa, you know. Ever, stop somebody from making a living either you know what I'm not gonNA. Put a great Dale on on Oh. You can't whatever if this is the only way to live? You know canal core. Billie Joe. Miller got caught twice now. It's like a right. This been going on for way longer than I was even on, so it's like hi, how they already come up with a way to like find. Keep people from you know taking these banned substance mitts as going. You know enhanced strength speed and. Give. The more the give your opportunity actually really hurting somebody in a sport that you over the people so you know I I have no control of that I can put my opinions out there left and right, but in the day the board and Commission, maybe fighters need to get together and figure out what's the proper way to enter the situation because at the end of the day like you said. Some Mike lewdly really get hurt or you know diamond, pass away. Don't get in that situation because boxing. Is upon US already before people have passed away in this part about so say now take drugs and make even like the number go higher or or the other side of me like against the nighttime like Nope, both of us take drugs and. Going to have a play, equal flake play you fail one way or another I, never done this year I will now don't need I work hard to believe of. Bust my ass for everything I do then day observed both taking it slow forfeit. That's that's one. That's one step below going into the ring with a baseball bat. That's that's basically going in with an armed weapon. Is it important like you are your your known. Your clean fighter right? So is it important to you to go into a fight with your opponent? Having been advanced tested like, do you do need to have every opponent that you face? Have that vodka or you Sada or whatever? The equivalent is tested before every fight. Yeah me and this is his real people to drugs. I. Don't want to get it newest. Somebody is doing drugs as just. It just just messed up. It's just not fair. You know like what is this? This is the ultimate ultimate cheating, not saying. I can't beat somebody that's on it. But. Like okay, this guy is getting stronger, each and every row his win and going away. He don't show exertion. He's not whatever like 'cause you know, day a clean fighter somebody that woodside relies on. I'm aware him down I'm break his will. I'm GonNa do with you have order stuff and yet. How can I be able to do stuff when you already take stuff? That would never get you to that point. Twelve. Knockout I'm looking to do all the time I'm looking to break them down. Break them down. Break Them Down Boom, twelve round knockout, you know. I agree with you. I grew the scary especially for boxers to be involved in those situations Dimitrius. Baynes, coming out my body. Know we have not. Been Training for since I was six years. I've been saying professionals ten eleven twelve minutes. I'm looking at these fighters by God you. These share with my life. What am I doing wrong? Sometimes, there's a reason for it some sometimes. There's an explanation behind it. They're. Dimitrius appreciate the time man. I hope to see back in the ring real soon. When I talked to I'll tell them you want some of his money to give me some Oregon. I seen something like you know I'm out. Heard something about. Every time a fight it wants and fight 'em. They want to move the stars or something like that. And of course, that's what you want. The moves in moon the stock, but my thing is this. Playing Cannella lonely I'm just now I'm going off like you know the. Scientists thing I think it's a money thing more than anything. What like? If I had the opportunity to fight? You know Muhammad Ali Floyd. Mayweather Void Jones Junior. If I had the opportunity fight whenever guys to get like maybe two million dollars whatever-ever, just me getting ring with that type of fighter. Is the on in itself a privilege and A away to make more money if you beat them. You understand. That is. I agree with that is hasn't problems. I had never had that problem of getting, and they're looking.

"She. She beat a forty two forty three year old woman who has not fought in thirteen years. And if she loses. While how do you explain that and I'm not saying she would lose, but I'm, but that would be very damaging for her brand, and she would make a lot of money and so law league, but. It's almost a no win situation. I think for Russell Shields. Yeah I mean the money, though is the operative. Accept the money if she can make five times or ten times what you'd make fighting anybody else that clearly worth the risk at at this point number career, but. Yeah from a pure boxing perspective. It isn't really is not a win in that, and that's a certain scenario. I let me finish with this. Mike Tyson, I can't believe it's twenty twenty and we're having Mike Tyson boxing conversations, but we are Mike Tyson watts some kind of fight. Everybody and their brother are calling him out promotional companies from Boston to Australia or calling him out. How do you think this ends I mean is there I mean does Tyson fight next submission against the Vendor Holyfield? Does he fight like an Ma guy like Tito, Ortiz, could you? See Him in a real boxing match like. Promotions is kind of calling for offering a million dollars. I mean. How does end with Mike Tyson? I. Don't think he'll participate in a real fight crisp and here's. The thing I think we could see him. In is in an exhibition where he gets paid a healthy sum of money. Maybe if bender, Holyfield gets a healthy sum of money, because people would be attracted to that, whether the problem of course with that is, if it's not a real fight, and you know they're just kind of moving around the not trying to hurt each other. What really is the point of it? But you could raise a significant amount of money. I guess if you put it on paper. But WHO'S GONNA pay? Hey purview money to watch them in something that they know is not really for. Because at least there around the same age I think he is four years older than the Mike. And so they're in the same age range. I don't want to see I don't really think he's entertaining, but I don't WanNa see Mike Tyson fight. Even, if it was a BI level guy who's thirty years old, thirty two, or whenever? Who's much younger than him, because here's here's my question to everyone who keeps saying? Oh, he looks great on these videos. Listen Mike Tyson did not want to fight in two thousand and four against Danny Williams in two thousand, five against Kevin McBride. What makes you think that he wants to fight in twenty twenty, he said to Jim Gray in an interview after the believe it was the Kevin McBride and he said I don't have this NBA anymore. This is not who I am anymore. He was I believed thirty nine, maybe one that happened. He's now going on fifty four later this month. Mike Tyson will beat the crap out of all of us I'm sure and he. You know if you've met him on the street. Don't WanNA. Fight it, but I see people saying Oh. You know from what I saw on that video, he could beat Tyson. Fury in. Let's calm down. It was a five second video and again while you wouldn't. WanNa meet Mike Tyson Alley. That does not mean that he could be and who's going to sanction that. Guy's fifty four years old, and he hasn't fought fifteen years. WHO's taking that risk to put him in there? Against the real heavyweight of and also known people all we could fight for a heavyweight title based on what? He lost his last two fights. The Kevin McBride and Danny Williams get a title shot his first fight back just because once upon a time he was the baddest man on the planet. I mean what I've other people here. Other George Foreman did former was thirty seven when he started his comeback up fifty four. Nine years younger when he beat Michael. More than Mike Tyson is now so and I'm not saying Mike trying to extended comeback, but it's just. We all waxing nostalgic, and of course I grew up. I was in high school when when Mike Tyson was the phenomenon few years before he beat. For loss to buster Douglas. So I! Get it I, mean you Mike Tyson was unlike anything. We've ever seen in boxing to some extent. That was thirty five years ago. Like what are we doing here? It'll just I don't I. Don't understand at eight I short answer just give you a very long one I short answers I can see him being in an exhibition where he gets paid a decent amount of money. The other thing is he doesn't really need money now. He's. He's had people kind of helping him out financially for quite some time, and he's a good place where es involved in this marijuana company and all that. I don't think he needs the money, so if it were a matter of him being desperate destitute. Maybe then he would do it, but he's not. So, he's I think he's just having some fun. Any looks great on the pads for five seconds, but he didn't have the best or what? He was twenty two years old or thirty two years old now he's. Now, he's thirty years older so. I don't see it now. And the novelty of Tyson holyfield three would wear off in a matter of days when you start looking at footage of Tyson at the end footage of Holyfield at the end, and he was low at the end and. Watching his pad work if he's still pretty slow at this point of his life, which should be the best condition. Fifty seven year old I know that doesn't mean I want to see a fifty seven year old. Climb back in the ring nor do I think that they would. Kind of wail away in each other in something that would turn into this epic. You know old man type of fight, so yeah I mean I don't know what the solution is. I don't need to see him in a regular boxing magic and some journeyman like has been suggested. I don't need to see him against a in bare knuckle, fighting or anything like that. That the one thing I think it'd be amusing and how familiar you are with this but barstool sports. Does this thing called Rowdy? So they go to like West Virginia and they do these are all sanctioned by the way these are sanctioned boxing matches. I went to one in Charlotte a few years back. They do this event rough and rowdy where they have. To. Two guys that really have very limited boxing. Spirits go at each other for three one minute rounds, and then you, when that fights over the next to in a matter of minutes I'll probably Mike Tyson is just. They're fighting guys that want to come in and find like. These, these stumble bums that think they can take a shot from Mike Tyson that stroll into the ring and just get clobbered like I would pay pay per view money to see that there's probably nothing else I'd pay pay per view money to see Mike Tyson involved in not in a real fight against Tyson fury that I would just be sad to watch six put nine fury. Fury, just toy with Mike Tyson. That's wouldn't be fun. There's no there's no rocky Balboa moment coming out of this where all of a sudden Tyson can show something against the top level heavyweight, nor do I care about the Lennox Lewis's or any of these other guys that could potentially get in the ring with them, but you want to have some amateur sign up for Keith. I'd pay to watch that like we all. We all laughed. We all laughed Keith when Mike Tyson dropped. What's his name Zach Galifianakis in the hangover? Like give me some professional version of that sign waivers. Get in there. There's no headgear rough and rowdy, because it is technically professional level boxing referee's judges all that stuff. Signed me up for Mike, Tyson versus the rough and rowdy crowd for one night I'd pay real money for that. So, what we have here is Chris Mannix advocating Mike. Tyson, beating up hillbillies Virginia's artistic hillbillies. Youngstown Ohio at one point. Yeah I actually covered that in Youngstown Ohio when when Tyson fought in the exhibition I actually. Don't ask me why but I was there, but anyway, but I think there would be I I hear what you're saying. WanNa see. Mike Tyson just not the crap out of some, but. In we see that in his rise throughout the heavyweight division, we saw that already. But it's like it's like people. Keep it peaceful people watching the last dance. Many of us saw Mike Tyson did coming up, but many of us didn't many of us. Don't know the. that he wants. That's a good point. That's a good point. Look I think people want. Mike Tyson is still one of the more fascinating people in the whole world. Forget about boxing. I mean. People were drawn to Mike Tyson. You see it even Chris when we're covering fights..

Today's layer and then from there. I I was walking around New York. People recognize the taking pictures. Then I flew flew back to Las Vegas and yeah man I mean getting closer to you know where where it happened. Everyone knew me there so I spent week in Vegas and it was. I got a good taste of what it was like to be famous for a while. Yeah feels great now but you still gotta go out and fight. I those for our Peter. What to do for you. I mean obviously people have been watching you months every single week. How did that Change Your Life Change? I mean I knew I was a household name in on no matter where I went. People knew I was consulted as day. Peterman of from the contender. No matter where I go you know I went to Disney with my family. People RECOGNIZE ME. Dizzy. I wife excuse walking now. She just keeps she. She can't take it anymore. He's like you gotTA stop everybody. Yes honey I do but you know it. Change at the best decision one at one of the best decisions. I made the buses obviously my wife but that was A. That was one of the best decision I've made was to get on that show. What made me who I am today. You know people got to see sixteen people who they really are because there wasn't scripted. Show script what you're seeing is what you got. People got to fall in love with the reopening frail. Just got the fall in love with the real. Sergio more everybody else. You get what you see on that show. And that's what it was so when people when I see people Or meet people everyday basis. They didn't like wow. I can't believe you just the same person I used to watch just like that all and I'm on my. Yeah that's how it was so best decision. I made one Sergio. It's funny it's funny Sergio. That like when you think of the CASSANDRA. It had multiple seasons five seasons. Now it's playing on epochs but you two really are the most recognizable faces from it. I mean maybe it's because more people watch those or you're just they followed your careers but when you think of the contender I was viewer. That was me I was watching. I only think I don't really think of grady brewer or any of the guys that one subsequently thoughts subsequently I think of Youtube. Why do you think that is? I know who you're rooting. For considering from biathlon and a New England s your intermetro Trento sort of break to Strasbourg and it was great to be a part of that and and yet it's overnight success it really is and and to this day. I still get recognised especially when you go to boxing events and it feels nice. Manuals feels like you. You did something you accomplish something because if people ask me what was what was more in my career winning the contender or winning the world title in its winning the contender for that reason. Because it's the first taste of success guys like me. Pierre gots first taste of appreciate us for what we did and putting us at the at the level pain as good money flying first class putting us in in the top notch hotels. That's the first taste of success. So you know it's always great man when you get that first Success people appreciate you for it in the long twelve million. Watch that fight. That's more than now. Any box is get nowadays exponentially more than any boxers get nowadays with the exposure was huge Peter when the fight ended. Did you think there'd be a rematch? Now I cried. His blood was just a bad bad experience for me a whole even leading up to their like. I told you earlier. I said I needed to not get out to win. Because that's how I wasn't looking at good in the gym and I wasn't shop I wasn't myself and I said if I if I got to win this them but obviously it didn't happen. Know box me. Oh School May and I i. didn't I cried. I was sad I think after the fine I put my head down on the ropes. I sat on the ropes and I was so embarrassed. And you WANNA get up. You know I want you buddy. I just felt that a big failure and at the post press conference surgery. I don't know if you remember I. I Sat Boko Ryan at the Post. Press Conference My my man. At the time I'll be Sakamoto. He passed away a little bit before the finale. I really took that hard because I don't worry I'll I'M GONNA win? This foia say I accomplish that but Tomei a big emotional rollercoaster for me at the end and I didn't even WanNa go out of my house when I got home for a while you know executives too embarrassed to walk the streets and everything else you know. Life goes on you know like I said. I ended up going to California. Doubt trainer will roll Rematch six months later on. You seen the different Peterman fatal. So Sergio how does the rematch happen while the rematch I knew I knew it was coming. A maybe a couple of weeks after the finale said you might have a rematch. So let's alone really is pushing for rematch might happen at the staple center because they want to sell you know the La Crowd and bring out my fan base. I all right cool and I was doing a lot of appearances me and sugary ended with traveling around the country. I was being invited to a lot of parties. The playboy mentioned once You know hanging out in Hollywood solid celebrating I was really indulging and then finally when we got the rematch said. Hey you're going to be fighting on October something. You have three months. I'm like I'm just GonNa need six weeks for that fight so I kept celebrating. I kept enjoying you know kept kept doing my thing. I trained hard for six weeks. But he came more prepared in that second fight. I took him for granted and Yemen. Almost beat me. It was a split decision a majority of people that slow at felt that Peter one. And I'll be honest with you. I'll be dead honest with you. I felt that won the fight but watching it on video. I'm like ooh hells close. Peter could easily won that fight. How sure were you that you won that fight? I was very shy. Believe how is definitely shy when they when they announced the decision? I almost know guy just turned. I believe it was just but you know it is what it is. What are you GonNa? Do you know his his career went on. He had a great. My mom had a great career so I I'm not stable. It is what it is. That's that's life. In general you got ups and downs in life you know But like I said we're friends now. It is what it is you know. Maybe do a third one. Well yes I mean. That's spoiled certainly. Were not your knowledge of my promoter. Chris Mannix we have discussed this a lot over the last year so. Sergio wants to get one more professional fight in Peter. I know you've been active recently. Getting back into the ring before this pandemic shut everything down. You can argue Sergio that it is Kinda one once like Capello Goff in you know. People thought on the second fight. So what do you think should get a third fight between Sergio more?

"Everyone has worked with Dante. Ruiz from Bob. Arum to Eddie hearn. All the way down the line they have all said release has real talent so if it turns out. He's taking. He's trying to harness that talent the right way. I think he can be a heavyweight champion. Once again yeah absolutely and I. I don't know if you saw the Wendy's is selling out of Burgers so I dunno for up to a bad start with the with the partnership here but maybe there's a connection to what you just said a few minutes ago. Yeah I mean who knows with with Andy Ruiz. But I'm rooting for him. A nice guy and a talented talented fighter. So I'm curious to see what that weight looks like when he comes in the next time around a couple things Greg Mike Tyson out there once again and so much has been made the social media video where. Tyson was walking away at the just guard of his former trainer. Tyson's fifty three years old ben over a decade well over decades. Since he's fought in his last night last two fights were against Danny Williams and Kevin McBride to Journeyman. That both knocked him out. There's some momentum now to see Tyson back in the ring once again. Some people actually believe that there could be some kind of George Foreman like renaissance with Mike. Tyson what did you make the video you saw of Tyson working the pads. And what do you do? You want to see Mike Tyson. Active once again exhibition or otherwise. I mean what do you think? Well I'll give a couple of part answer there. The the first is I actually really enjoyed the video. Thought it was cool. It reminded me Tyson. Even at fifty three is more exciting than a lot of fighters that we watch on various networks. You know it was. There was a snap to the punches. There was a sort of the way that he hits that compact powerful thought that I mean it was. It was really cool to watch. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I watched the video a few times and I was like. Wow this is cool. It reminds you sort of like the last dance. It reminds you just how incredible of an athlete Tyson was in his prime. How exciting he was electrifying. He was how he made. You like. Stop what you're doing and sit and watch a video of a fifty three year. Old Man throwing punches. Some ads that happened. That said I don't really WANNA see a Tyson fight of these. Things tend to not work out that well in my opinion. You know Roy Jones. It's sad when we watch and fight these days. Even what he wins. You looked guy like I think you know. It was sad at the end. When he was still fighting I get why these guys can't let go. I get whether they want to step back in. I even get why people are still talking about Mayweather Pacquiao too and they might be using canes by the time they get in the ring again but I just don't. We seem to many guys suffer too. Many injuries have too much brain damage to make a farce into reality at that. Mike Tyson was one of the most exciting fighters of all time. I think we should leave it at that and I'd watch him do miss all day but I'd rather he doesn't take any risk you know. I don't think there's any reason to watch that. And He seems to have come a long way from kind of a really scary guy. Who did some really bad things in the one thousand nine hundred ninety kind of become something of a caricature with the appearance is a hangover movies? And he's got interesting podcast. Now that I've listened to on several occasions Maybe WANNA get back into the promoting business. Maybe once again to the training or managing business. I don't know I mean a lot of ways that Mike Tyson can contribute to boxing. And Look I'd even be okay. If Tyson decided to do some kind of exhibition match which is really all. He's talking about at this point. I mean if he wanted to do like a exhibition match with headgear with Lennox Lewis or Vitaly Klitschko and raise money for first responders or nurses or something. That's going on during this pandemic I am all for it. Put IT ON ZOOM. Pay Per view and we'll get together and watch that that particular rounding but I I'd remind people about what Tyson look like at the end of his career. I mean it was bad when he got knocked out by Danny Williams. It was worse when he got knocked out by Kevin McBride. I mean there's one thing to see Tyson kind of with the mystique taken away from lose to abandon holyfield and Lennox Lewis but Danny Williams and Kevin McBride. I mean I get it that if there is a division where you can make this type of comeback. It's probably heavyweight because the powers always going to be there and we've seen guys like form and do it but fifty three years old. The last thing you want to see is Tyson. Go up against some journeymen or somebody. Eddie hearn stable and just get whacked around it. Just it just doesn't make make a heck of a lot of sense here's one that would generate some revenue may be. How many people you think would pay to watch Tyson In an exhibition hit Floyd Mayweather? Two guys that are two of the greatest boxers ever one of food is pretty pretty well beloved despite obviously some things that happened in his past the other I think people have been waiting for the entirety of his career to see him get hit hard. I think the DAD would obviously be a mismatch and size. But I think you'd you'd have people lined up to pay for it. Oh you're right about you're right. About how beloved Tyson still is. I mean I remember we ringside for fury against Joshua Fury against wilder. When they introduced the former heavyweight champions and Tyson was introduced he got by far the loudest ovation. Out of anybody. There I mean he was revered by that crowd yeah absolutely. I remember the thunderous ovation that night. That was one of the last as we could actually gather next to other people and I remember all three guys coming in and I think Tyson has really sort of transition like you said into this kind of lovable character. Doesn't excuse anything that happened in his past. But you know I saw him do the Broadway show when I lived in New York. I've listened to the PODCAST. There's been some interesting long four stories on him like the G. Q. One and you know I. Just don't know that he needs to re enter a boxing ring to reclaim any past glory. He's very much in the public. Consciousness is very much taken an interesting life turn and I also wonder if he could pass the drug test based on what you see and hear in terms of you know if he actually did come back to fight you went to the Broadway show. Digit was your Broadway Guy. Yeah several several of them you know. My wife would sometimes for me to go to them but we did see tied. I believe because they let riders in for free. Which just tells you everything you need to know about me. I don't know if it's good or bad but I I lived in. Hell's kitchen for like ten years a stone's throw from Broadway and I never went to a single show. I never did regret that later in life. I mean I know every dive bar in the area but the Broadway shows not so much not so much. Let me finish with a story that I know will be near and dear to your heart because you are as I found out during our experience. Cover the Mayweather Pacquiao. Fight a huge. Game of thrones fan. The Mountain. From game of thrones who is now I guess technically the world's strongest man because of some dead lift record. He said he wants to get into boxing and he has the guy he topped the dead. Lift Record Eddie Hall to a boxing match which is scheduled to take place tentatively scheduled anyway for September of Twenty Twenty one. So let me ask you bishop. You Love Yourself. Some game of thrones and if you care to explain why you love game of thrones and what it does for your writing. I'LL BE HAPPY. Happy to let the people know but you do. You WanNa see the mountain. Step into the boxing ring. Well let's just start with a little. Game of thrones background. So for the for the mayweather. Paco Fiasco Chris. Mannix and I rented a house in Las Vegas and we lived together for a month. He gets called this the greatest month of his life repeatedly but very consistent in that regard and when I decided during that month since I wasn't with my wife or hanging out you know with anyone other than that I would add on. Game of thrones so that meant that. I would watch you know. Every episode of Game of thrones daily and I watched the entire first four seasons during that month. Now I like to take breaks when I get writer's block and men expenditure incredibly funny that I would try to make myself right. Better by going. Game of thrones and so he would always hear me in the room with the theme music going you know whenever he could tell whenever I got writer's block so that's a long way to sort of give to this question and the answer that before he before we get to the answer before we get to the answer like just just to to expound just a little bit on that it would be like tour. People get a visual visual. This bishop went and he was assigned to May weather and I was in Vegas assigned Pacquiao all things back. Yeah so I would sit every morning at the kitchen table and start writing and reporting and doing everything and Bishop do the same at the dining room table and periodically you just here like a fist slam on the desk or or some kind of noise and bishop would get up go upstairs and all of a sudden.

Gary Russell Jr. dominates Tugstsogt Nyambayar, retains WBC featherweight title

"Gary Russell. You know with an interesting figure. Because he's extremely talented fighter. We saw he scored a nice win against You know king tug in the mandatory fight that took place last week Everybody looks Gary. Russell has a great talent and a in a in a worthy competitor against any of these guys but he has said that he can't get the big fight now. If you can't get the big fight you take the next biggest one you can get and go out there and make seven figures every time you get in the ring for whatever guarantees are. He has decided not to do that. He wants to Fight Leo Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz findings. Your Monty Davis. Obviously that is not going to be therefore if you look down the list of guys at one twenty six or even at one thirty you know for him that our makeable that are going to be interesting to the public. There's not a lot there. He says he'd go up to one thirty five if necessary You know if there's no Leo Santa Cruz Fight. Against Tank Davis. I'll tell you a huge that at least in part of the country I live in the you know the the Washington DC Maryland. Virginia area is tank against Gary Russell. I mean one guy's from Washington and One guy from Baltimore they'd fill up any of the arenas in either city but again that's probably alongside so Gary Russell. He's kind of like a man without a country right now. He's he's got talent he's got a title he can really fight And he just doesn't have the top guy to fight against unfortunately so he's Kinda off to the side and you know he's only been fighting once a year I I would hope he would be able to find another before the end of this year if he does. I just really couldn't tell you who it's going to be against her. What kind of level? It's going to be one twenty six or one thirty Gary Russell. I think would be a threat either.

"chris mannix" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix

"They are sports illustrate made incredible body or I really appreciate. The integrity is well on great job. We Love Luckily Bank Keys Kris menace. These employed by sports illustrated the announcers got it in for me. This is the crossover NBA. Podcast you have a problem with it. Build a team that can beat of hosted by the One and thank. God mannix Nick. Right is here first things first Sirius. Xm Radio and one of my occasional on TV nemesis. Chris what's what's the plural of Nemesis. Is there who I think. I'm not sure but I'm only one person even though I'm sure when you're arguing with me. Sometimes it feels like there's multiple people involved. It's good to see him. Sometimes it does feel like this multi there. It is good to be here recording with you just hours. After the Lakers were trampled annihilated by the Celtics I've been. I've been hitting refresh refresh refresh. I've been waiting for the annual tradition of Chris. Mannix getting Boston Celtics fans up just at the hopes up just a touch high. The I know you were saying before the year or early in the year that there may be a big man away from being able to make the NBA finals. I assume now your belief is they can make the NBA Finals as presently constituted. And maybe win. Am I correct your incorrect? I having seen them get trampled. Mostly by Milwaukee. A few days prior the bucks to me are still class but tomb. We'll let me for an organ. Make this a celtics thing no. Let's do it incited to moves. The Celtics should make in the next month and a half trade for `Davis Burton's in Washington terrific three point shooter. Give UP THE MEMPHIS. Pick to go and get them. That's probably going to be like the teens. Something like that on the Memphis quasi good deal the memphis pick and some small piece because Bertos make a ton of money get bertone's he's a floor spacing guy make shots off the bench. Resign him at a pretty big number next year and have him as part of your and at the buyout market sign. Another member of the Washington was good. Get bought out. Yon Mimi Oregon. Yawn Mimi bring in Dave Davos. Bertone's then you're cooking and you give yourself a chance. I've always had the belief that the more wizards you can add to your team better. Do winning a championship. Can I throw a different? Yes sake trade at you. Yes especially now that the Memphis pick for a long time. I know people thought might be one day a number one pick or top five not so much now that that's in play the Celtics and they were great yesterday and Jaylen Brown who I mocked the contract extension that that extension looks better and better by the day. I have to concede that point. We'll see how it ages over the next couple of years but through the first probably pretty well good continues his up it will I? I WANNA see Kimball. Obviously he's been awesome for them But when I watch him and I feel like their one piece away I think they should go after Anthony Davis. I think he could really fit with what they're trying to do. And it seems like something that really I think Danny Aines should look into. Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis okay. I think it'd be good. I know he wasn't very good yesterday. Maybe you can against the Lakers. Maybe you can get him with. The stock is down. Now I know I know Danny. Probably wouldn't trade for him unless he committed to a long term contract. Include Marcus smart by the way Marcus. Smart wicked good. Marcus smart did he. Eleven threes the other day. Did I think he's got? It has to have been the highest percentage of threes for someone to twenty shots in a game. Twenty shots eighteen. Three point attempts to that. Well that's what it was wild that yeah that's crazy good friend because once upon a time he was the worse shooter in the SC was and last year. He shot like a really respectful number. Thirty four thirty five thirty something like that which was great and had an eleven three game. I couldn't believe it but no listen. This is people. Think I don't like the Celtics and it's not true. It's mostly because of me. Well there's there's a few things I I just got tortured history with Boston sports in general but I I love Janas the boxer my preseason pick to make the finals last year there my pick to make files and I thought they were going to roll to the finals. Till that triple overtime was triple overtime. Double overtime game three against the against the raptors and they're up to nothing and all series flipped but I really even though I don't like being wrong would love it if the Celtics could over achieve to make the finals because nothing would be better. Then if Celtics finally breakthrough again post Keiji era only to meet Lebron the NBA finals. We can sweep their ass out of the playoffs again. That's kind of would be the perfect way for the season end instead. I think it's going to end with Lebron versus Johnson the finals but we're GonNa have ourselves Celtics for great yesterday. Lebron was not very good and the Lakers lost second time in three games after a really good win against Houston game. I actually was at down in Houston this week. Great Game Against Houston. I wanted to touch on some of the rockets towards the end mocked one of my takes on the elevator on the way save. Let's say there's a long? Is it going to be a longer? Podcast I promise you America. Chris Mannix you think he's had some wild takes before the rockets take Chris. Mannix is about to unveil is all time galaxy brain take so we can get to that later on top of the Western Conference right now. You've still got the Lakers. With a comfortable lead over the clippers but those two teams one to win and the clearly the class I think. Oh let's be fair to the Nuggets Jazz while the nuggets fair to the jazz. They've been uneven most of the year. They're they're they're picking some momentum upright his nuggets jazz-clippers same exact record. All thirty thirteen with the clippers. Potentially could so. You could say the clippers during the second you say. They're in fourth third as well. What have right. But I look at the Clippers record with like twenty four and eight as I'm recording. I mean they're great with collide in the lineup. He's just he just doesn't like to play doesn't like to play all that off. Let's those teams. I'm still convinced they're going to meet in the conference finals. Are they either both those teams where you expected them to be right? Now the Lakers. I was surprised by how fast they started. I mean I thought they'd get off to a good start giving the schedule but that early December stretch where they started to win games against good teams. That surprise me and the clippers when Kawai plays. They're really really good when he doesn't they're kind of average show. Yes so the I I think both of these teams are exactly where I projected him for the year. Which was the Lakers? Being the best team in the West and they clearly are. I don't know why people would be surprised at them. Being awesome they have two of the six players and basketball and their best players. Actually play all the time which is helpful. I Know Anthony Davis has got hurt on so missed. Five Games without wasn't a load management issue of Lebron's played forty one of their forty three games. They had to me shocking. Win The one of the Games. Lebron missed the game against okay. See we're no libranoy? Anthony Davis I think Ronda was hurt for that game as well. Not Rondos any good Your comes Kaku and they were right and it was one of the few good Kyle. Kuzma games the clippers. Also you know this. I picked them to finish fourth in the West and lose in the first round. I do. I think that they will lose in the first round. I think that is entirely independent or dependent on what they who they draw. Like for for instance. I think Dallas is a great story. I don't think Dallas winning a playoff series this year. I don't think there yet ready for that. And I think that Luca. Who is my third favorite player basketball and you and I were on the same page book you know the IT feels like the folks anyone that actually cared at all about international basketball was saying so. It's not like I was unique in this. And if people care enough to listen to this podcast a lot of people that Luke was the clear cut number one. Pick of that draft. It was I D Andre. Eight and he's going to have a really nice career and he he's a really good player and trae. I love trae. Luca was the only guy who could have been what he was and his numbers. This you're out of this world. I still don't think there yet. Ready to be a real contender. I think it's probably another year supporting cast around them. They were playing over their heads a little bit early in a playoff series. I feel like you just throw two people. Luca repeatedly and say we dare KRISTAPS. Good Luck Daria. So yeah the clippers were to get like the Mavericks in the first round. I think they'd win that series. I don't think they're better than the rockets. The rockets are playing. I think that matchup is terrible for the clippers and the rockets are playing terribly right. Now's not a good time to be pro. Is that matchup? Terrible for the clippers Well they've lost both the Times they've Larraizar. They're one and two against the clippers. I think I also think. Here's reverend key in on that specific match. Give the bigger point. The thought process was the clippers would be the best defense in the NBA. And the reason. I pump the brakes on the clippers hype was. I just can't remember a defense post Jordan's bulls. That was a great great defense without a real rim-protector and what Jordan's Bulls had was arguably the three best perimeter defenders in the entire league and people said well clippers might have that same thing but the game has changed so immensely since then and so. We've seen the clippers. Is there not a great defensive team? They're good defensive. Team top ten defensive team right. Yeah but they were supposed to be the number one defense the them in Philly. Who's supposed to be those two teams philly once they got Horford and phillies all different masks for different reasons discounting ZUBEC- as a rim protect. Oh look he's got he's got problems but they're mostly like perimeter problems. He's not great defending pick and rolls. That's a huge problem team defensively but he is. I think he's been a decent rim-protector for this. So here's here's I guess. My other issue with the clippers is they have two of the best two way players in the league. Inqui- Paul George. No one can deny that. I I my issues with Kawhi unrelated to how good he is when he actually plays but all their other key guys are designated hitters. Patrick Beverley is stupendous. On one. End of the court Lou. Williams is great on the other end of the court if they were the same person..

Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites

"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the

Without Kevin Durant, Game 4 is must-win for Warriors

"Talking NBA finals with Chris, Mannix Klay Thompson who missed game three will play game four Kevin Durant whom this the last eight games will not play game. Four Steve Kerr said there's a good chance Katie playing game five or six Klay Thompson spoke about what it would mean if miss the finals entirely. Well, it suck if Kevin can't come back. I mean, I still think we'd have a good chance to win the finals. But obviously. That takes a huge hit. Think it would make us to cut favor anymore without him, you know teams very good. We just love the candor of the Golden State Warriors, like as a team like Klay, whatever. But dream on Jay handed. Steph is usually pretty Cantu. I love that team like is this. Well Kerr's as well, who is the favourite in this series of Katie doesn't return? Oh, it's oh I mean, I still again, we can have different conversation on Monday. If Klay Thompson comes back and looks exactly like the Klay Thompson, we saw before the injury. But if he is significantly slowed it's impossible to look at this series and say Toronto isn't the favorite now we discussed this yesterday. I disagree with Jeff Van Gundy said when he said that this war is team wasn't a playoff team, but it certainly isn't a final team, and it's probably not a team that gets out of the Western Conference as currently constituted so without Kevin Durant. And with a hobble Klay Thompson, Toronto is, is a clear favourite in my eyes. Tonight. What's important is where is clay and not only wears he during the game.

NBA Reveals Refs Missed 17 Calls for Rockets, 11 for Warriors in Game 1

"About officials during the NBA playoffs is nothing new, but the rockets apparently took it to the next level yesterday. Preparing a report to show that the refs cost them a trip to the NBA finals last season. We'll see how all this noise about bad calls affects tonight's game two and the rest of this series. But there's no easy answer. When it comes to officiating. James harden, something we talked about yesterday at great length. He's physical. He's unorthodox. He draws. Contact. He likes contact. He's always going to get a lot of calls. But the question is is he getting the right calls. It's important to remember. None of this is new because players and coaches have been complaining forever. You can Google Tim Duncan Joey Crawford or watch Phil Jackson, Pat, Riley work, the officials, and if you think Hardin is hard to officiate imagine trying to officiate a game, which akilah Neil. There's no perfect solution here, and you can't blame the rockets for at least trying to gain an advantage here a tight competitive series, and it may come down to how it's called. And it won't be the first time for sport. That's very difficult to officiate Steve Kerr had a little bit of fun with this yesterday at his press conference. He had this to say about fouls Kolding game on the focus should be on. Team's plane. Extremely hard me watching the he'll bowl teams just got after and competed. But you know, we just watched the tape upstairs. You don't think there were ten calls. We thought we got fouled in this is out goes, and every coaching illegal tell you the same thing, you watch the tape, and you hope man, that's that's. It's the nature game. It's it's very very difficult to officiate an NBA game. There's all kinds of gray area. And you know in the modern game. You know, a lot of players have have gotten really good at deception creating contact. Okay. Steve Kerr thrown out some verbal bouquets their complementing the officials. How would he feel if they lost game one? You know, they missed a lot of calls out there. The NBA has this two minute video review were they look at the calls. They missed and they admitted that they miss him calls in this game. My problem with the the rockets is let's live in the now, let's not be looking back to game seven last year. I got a problem with that. You gotta be Golden State. And it's now it's not you know, you guys caused us the NBA finals last year. Okay. How did you guys shoot? You miss twenty seven consecutive three pointers in that game. Was that the officials? Yes, that's because they were fouled apparently apparently all of them. What do they shoot like eight for forty four from three point range in game seven last year on your home floor? Yes. You didn't have Chris Paul? You should've won that game. But don't live in the past. And if you wanna bring attention to this now now all of a sudden, you're going down into your basement into your lab, and you're looking at all this. Video and say look at all of these miss calls. You had. Okay. The officials. Are you saying the officials are favoring the Golden State Warriors? Are you saying that's what I want to hear are these just bad officials is their favouritism?
