Overseas Operations Bill: Government facing calls to rethink plan to 'decriminalise torture' by UK troops
"Torture has been prohibited under international law since nineteen forty eight and is enshrined in legal instruments such as the Geneva Conventions and the United Nations Convention Against Torture. But the British government is trying to push through the overseas operation bill which would introduce a stronger legal protection for UK soldiers serving abroad critics believe it will make overseas operations worse the victims of war crimes and for the UK standing in the world bill passed its second reading in Parliament on Wednesday and three Labor backbench peace had been sucked for voting against. Well Tracy joy is head of accountability and international cousy at freedom from torture, and she joins me on the line to tell us more good morning tracy. What does this bill exactly seek to achieve? Good morning to a gina the do a apparently according to the government seeks to provide greater protection for British troops against vacations claim that might have been brought from operations. That happened overseas more than five years ago. what we believe that it does actually is to create a barrier to justice with those he might have been subjected to war crimes by British troops in those are the operation. I mean, the government says that it is doing this for the soldiers but we've seen very very senior military personnel and ex personal come out to say that they'd gravely concerned about the signal. It sends I mean field marshals, generals, frontline veterans of expressed grave concerns that what are that precise objections? I think the objections that many hold is that and to summarize the words that you spoke in parliament that this legislation really is a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I think that the is acceptance that perhaps the prices that some soldiers have been involved in have taken Fawzi Long. But that really the problem of investigation and the government is seeking to legislate to solve the problem that would be better served through. BITTU. Protesters right at the beginning and more independent and speedy investigation I. mean the government denies that there will be any barrier to justice under these Nino's. It does say presumption against prosecution for torture and crime except in exceptional circumstances, what signal is the sending internationally It's very interesting that they say that but It seems unlikely that you would say that there's no buried to justice when actually they specifically introduced. Three layers of legal protection that would stop prosecutions that would've normally have preceded. And the signal that sins therefore is that they would be sick instances in which to torture would be deemed to be unexceptional and we find that quite startling. Actually, how could the government argue that torture could ever be unexceptional? I mean rape is excluded from from the provisions. That's obviously a good thing torture isn't does not mean that torture is a lesser crime. Well, that seems to be exactly the signal that the government is sending that I mean, obviously, it's excellent that sexual violence and raped or created and the Minister of Defense Been Wallace argued in parliament that the crimes that should never take place on the battlefield. Well, we would that torture should also never take place and it seems quite absurd that they would say out to give the impression that torture and other crimes against humanity as you say, Lesser Crime Than Sexual.

That was an old somewhat enfeebled voice saying Bob. It's Bill Russell I'm calling to see how you are. They talked for about ten or twelve minutes according to cousy, and then he asked the question rust I sent you a letter couple years ago. Did you get it? and Bill Russell said yes I did. Thank you. Nothing more was Russell's response brief because he was angry not angry at all cousy wouldn't speculate I asked him if Bill Russell simple response of yes. was sufficient. Absolutely. For three seasons, satch sanders observed the relationship between Bob cousy and Bill Russell up close. I asked him if he thinks cousy owed Russell and apology. No. The policy but I do think that cousy because he was cousy thought he could do more and then started thinking that he should have done more. Because, he's a man of conscience insensitive. Could have done more possibly, but he feels could do more and that's what really counts. I.

The Revenge of the 47 Ronin - January 30, 1703
"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered. Weren't good enough either way us. No attacked Kita wasn't hurt badly but awesome knows action was considered a huge huge offence. Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty. Seven Ronin Matenaer. Eto One of the Ronin Ten Asaka Ki Ay Mon was sent to a code to announce that the rate on Cuba's mansion was happening. Other accounts of the incident. Say that he left after the battle but on this snowy night the Ronan told kids neighbors of their plans to attack his mansion and and they went forward with their plan after killing and wounding many of Canada's Samurai they found Kira hiding and beheaded him all the Ronin survived the attack back which lasted into the predawn hours of the next morning. They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe. They had avenged the death of their master but their actions were still still illegal. Instead of ordering them executed the Shogun allowed them to commit. Seppuku a more honorable way to die. forty-six Ronin did so. Mr Buried at the same guy. Who
Iraqi Parliament Votes to Expel All American Troops
"On Sunday the Iraqi occupying move to expel the US troops exam at her Kumana Lafayette? The healthy added up. It wasn't a an incredibly convincing. Vote it most Sunni and Kurdish. MP stage away all of E. N.. Peace in the Chamber at the time was Shia been happened though is equal what. NFL A woman isn't a unified position in the country but it was a parliamentary majority. This is Liz sly on the bay loop Yoichi for the Washington Post the Madden Wapakabhulo. Got Up that vote in the Iraqi parliament was in response to the drone strike. That killed Major General Qassem Soleimani and several other people including Iraqi military commander and that attack happened on Iraqi soil. Right outside the country's biggest airport toward the rockies were absolutely furious and if you remember this is came just a few days of members of Iraqi militia were killed in an ashtray insider Iraq which has already triggered outrage in Iraq seen the US embassy get students. And I'm trying to think in people burning reception gates and this nation of somebody who was one of Iraq's is closest allies really the Iraqis over the edge they were absolutely livid. And what are the prime minister. Say about this. The Prime Minister Cool Hilditch an outrage. He said it was a violation of Iraqi sovereignty. A violation of all the rules and to which has troops are operating in our because is the only there was to fight Islamic state than not supposed to be taking the orioles into Iraq. So that's true then. This is actually a violation of how the US and Iraq are supposed to be interacting than in situations like this the US was supposed to give a rock advance notice that they were going to try to do something like this. Yes and it's quite here as well that Iraq would not allow them to do this because they have very close relations kestler money. He's he's sort of the chief. Chief enforcer of Iran's will in Iraq and he funds all the militias he holds enormous interest mention the country. There's no way they would have given permission for this so then. How do they intend to respond to this? I mean the big was sponsors. The vote Newark in parliament on Sunday. Now this was not a binding law. It wasn't binding resolution. But when you think about it that U. S. went for rocket richly in two thousand and free to install democracy Z.. Bay Pretty much draft at the constitution that created this parliament and a majority in parliament is now sick. They don't want the US troops. It's very difficult for them to justify staying under these circumstances and so what would a withdrawal look like. Or what would that process look like now that they voted in parliament. Are they taking next steps to actually come up with a formal process of essentially kicking out. US troops well. This is where it gets very interesting interesting because the letter was leaked by the Prime Minister's Office yesterday but the Prime Minister had received yesterday from the US military and basically said it. It basically informed the Iraqi military to be aware that extra US troop movements for great be taking place ads the US prepared to pull out. Troops from Iraq in accordance with the sovereign was just gone the decision in the occupied event. Now look very much as this as if if the slash was giving notice that the US intending to withdraw from Iraq. The reaction in Washington was like no we haven't made any such decision led to present mistake. It was only a draft and it doesn't mean anything it really does look like the. US is actually starting into laid the groundwork lady for the process of rejoin those troops. We know that have been some movements at airport tubes. Moving from some places to other places it beginning to look if they're putting the steps in place at least two down the presence if not to bring about a complete withdrawal now of course a compete with royal would tape probably weeks or months because there's a lot of troops. There's a lot of equipment they want expecting this but yeah I think there's a sense in Iraq at the moment and the beginning of the end Come well it's also interesting because it it feels like Sola money's killing kind of laid. Bare are some existing tensions over how the US thinks about and respects the sovereignty of Iraq. And I'm wondering if there are other ways that has become apparent over the last couple of months or last couple years of the. US maybe not treating Iraq the way that a quote unquote equal partner should be treated needed. Yes I think it's fair to say that as being a real breakdown of in stage of the. US Rachi relationship in recent is a relationship that really became certainly very close. During the last years of the Bush administration was abandoned to a certain extent by the Obama Administration but not so much as leaving the patches it by trump. He didn't try and meet Iraqi leaders when he went to see the troops at Alice had bad air base. For example he just went in and saw the troops as as if his relationship with the Iraqis Persson important I mean he all his tweets all of his inconstant statements about the US wanting to be finished with endless war. It's his constant statements about the. US only wants the oil. All of that has left. People in the Middle East in general and in Iraq can particular wondering what is that. US on sound are they staying ave going. And meanwhile in those years Iraqis realizing that they are going to have to live with the Iranians on their border for the rest of the time and that the Americans can't be counted on it might not stay So is this a moment where the the Iraqis are basically saying we should be thinking about prioritizing our relationship with Iran more than any of what remains of of our relationship with the United States. I think the Iraqis come to see the presence of U. S. troops on ness. Oil Soften being stabilizing facts. Shit that helps them to balance. The relationship with Iran actually could be a destabilizing factor. cousy could bring an von U. S. war to their territory. But what's ironic about this situation. Is that at least ostensibly one of the things that led to the. US is decision to To Kill Sola money was was because he was exerting all this influence in Iraq but if this killing ends up with the US withdrawing from Iraq or being kicked out of Iraq. Doesn't that give give Iran. Basically exactly what it wanted in the first place is is an opportunity for Iran to increase their influence in Iraq will absolutely and the whole point of these tax on the US basis which Sulejmani was organizing was to convince the Americans it can stick it out to Faruk. They were hoping that president trump wouldn't have the appetite for war with Iran. Wouldn't fight back and rather than suffer. US casualties in an election year. that he would just pull out the troops and this was Sulaiman's mission if you like now that he has died his his life's goal will is going to be accomplished. And I'm curious how Iraqis feel about this like. Is there widespread support for the idea of you've strengthening ties to Iran and getting rid of US influence or is it more complicated than that. It's sound game night that it's not it. I choose much more complicated. I believe most rockies do not want that country to be a vessel stage in Iran I believe most of them resent the extensive influence your on his gains in Iraq. And we've seen that come out in the popular protests recently where they have denounced Iran and they have denounced sula money but not wanting Iran in your country doesn't mean they want America instead it's not an either or situation and it seems like that has been one one of the historical challenges. Iraq is the fact that it is such a kind of convenient proxy for so many other countries and for such a long time. They're kind of at at the mercy of of more powerful allies. Who tried to us? Iraq is a form of exerting influence. And so it. I wonder if there will be. Yeah time anytime soon where they can find a way to to be more independent or to kind of get rid of that influence and be able to stand on their own. We're looking could you really don't Chinese. They're really really sort of broken country at the moment. The economy is mass

"Cousy says it pained him to watch African Americans struggle for acceptance and inclusion but he remained quiet and cousy says says Russell's anger made it hard for them to form a friendship like the ones cousy had enjoyed with Chuck Cooper and some of his other black teammates. Let's go have a bill. Let's go to the movie together. Whatever socialize outside of the unit? I was a senior member. I had a good relationship with the media I always have so I could have reached out and perhaps shed is paying a little bit with them. You know I never did that with us. Bob cousy retired tired at the end of the sixty two sixty three season after yet another successful tidal run. He and Russell led the Celtics to six. NBA Championships in their seven seasons. Together the Celtics gathered for a postseason dinner and bill. Russell took to the podium to speak and what Russell said he said. Was You meet very few men in life like Bob cousy. I consider cousy like a brother and Russell became emotional at this point. cousy who's he doesn't really remember that either. Obviously this should have been special to me when I read what he said. It bought back a slight Komo and it brought a tear my I but I don't know why I don't remember it more specifically other on ninety years old. That's something thing to do with it. You know when I read these quotes to cousy during an interview cousy just started shaking his head. He said what was I thinking. Why didn't I get up and go across the room and give us a hug in the fall of nineteen sixty three? The Celtics became Bill Russell's team unless that had happened much earlier earlier Russell retired as a player in nineteen sixty-nine after thirteen seasons in the NBA. He earned eleven championship rings. cousy did a lot of thinking over three decades about how he'd fallen short as a team leader but he didn't talk about it until two thousand and one. ESPN interview about Russell. And he was talking in a breezy way about Russell's extraordinary athleticism but the topic shifted.

"Is only a game. I'm Karen Given. There's not a lot that Bob cousy could have done better on the basketball court. He led the League in assists for eight straight years he won six NBA championships with the Boston Celtics. But cousy now ninety one years old and when he looks back he feels like there are some something. He wishes he had done differently. That the end of the day when you're sitting reviewing your life you have a lot of league. That's as to how you should've could've could have done things better over the years. COUSY has thought a lot about one of those regrets. His relationship with former teammate. Bill Russell I felt some guilt. Okay all the not reaching out to them and that's what I did eventually. Here's only games Gary Wallich on a cold autumn morning Bob. cousy greets me at the front on tour as the leaves fall around his home in Worcester massachusettes. He's lived there alone since his wife died twenty thirteen. I shake his hand and ask Kim how he's doing. Never ask a ninety year old that question. He says he brandishes his cane. For emphasis. We sit it has enormous dining room table and talk about his early days on the Celtics. His hands move like he's throwing passes to invisible teammates as he discusses his rookie year. Well we had some talented players. We had some not so talented players. cousy says that his fellow rookie Chuck Cooper was a five or six on a ten scale. Talent wise but cooper was something else. Jackie Robinson broke the color line. Baseball in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. Three years has laid up on a wall around got up at the meeting and said the cell expect Chuck Gupta Undo Cain. cousy had no black friends growing up in a Manhattan tenement intimate. He had no black teammates in high school or college now. He was roommates with the first black player selected in the NBA draft. They went to movies. Listen to jazz and drank bars. Their bond was tested on February. Twenty Eighth Nineteen fifty two after a game in Raleigh and he wasn't into allowed to register hotel with us and Chuck and I somehow found out. There was asleep going through all night at twelve. Thirty to in New York with a connection. Boston cousy and Cooper went to union station to wait for the sleeper train. Who is doing and after three or four visits? It's like midnight and we have to go with. They made their way to the restroom. cousy was unprepared for what he saw. Stupid big wight signs with a blackout. A one pointing light says colored the other pointing left says white and I was stunned. I did. I was ashamed to be white. I didn't know what to say to them. I said come on. Let's go out to the end of the platform and we peed together. Other their friendship grew off the court and on it cooper was good player but cousy point guard was beginning to transform the league. This is the one thousand nine hundred eighty s and he's a little bit like Elvis Presley Music or James Dean and film that's writer Gary Pomerantz. He's interviewed cousy over fifty fifty times. He's a renegade pushing out against the conservative norms dribbling behind his back and and throw a no look passes he was Adding sort of a jolt of caffeine to the NBA. A jolt of style put. The celts were only slightly better than mediocre. They were a team struggling to find itself self. The Celtics needed a big man to make it to the next level in a trade after the nineteen fifty-six draft the Celtics Acquired Center Bill Russell less changed the dynamic in every way he was a fierce shot blocker. He put a trauma on opposing shooters and he was a great rebounder under an opponent would take a shot and miss and there's Russell rising rising six ten long lean and springy getting the rebound and half turning and snap map passing the outlet to cousy Russell and cousy created a fast break style. That was nearly indefensible. These are in many ways the ultimate teammates they they were both murderously competitive and very quickly. The Celtics emerged as a force to be reckoned with Russell and coups a AH relatively tight relationship on the court. That's forward satch sanders. He joined the Celtics in nineteen sixty. The hell out of respect for each other. That was is clear off the court. They were not spending a lot of time in each other. Racial tensions were high in the US that carried over into some NBA va locker rooms. But Sanders says that wasn't the case with the Celtics. cousy says Red Auerbach who he alone called by his first name. Arnold created clubhouse harmony and a rather unusual way but I think on old frankly solved the black white situation putting well. He tweeted everyone saying badly. So less than I- relationship was the same as any two people that are working towards a goal. The goal was to win and championships and with Russell. The Celtics began to do that but something else was happening. At the outset of the Celtics Dynasty Gary Ripon Marantz Russell and cousy together for seven years as teammates. And if you put that on the civil rights timeline. It's roughly from the end of the Montgomery bus boycott to Dr Dr King's March on Washington address and nineteen sixty three. That is the heart of black freedom. Struggle in Russell would engage in that struggle in in a way that few athletes did on October seventeenth nineteen sixty one. The Celtics played a preseason exhibition. Game in Lexington Kentucky Satch Sanders. Remember what happened at the team hotel before the game would go through the eat into. This won't really cancer people. They weren't happy about they gathered in Russell's room at the Hotel Russell and Sanders along with Casey Jones and Sam Jones decided not to play. Then read didn't WanNa turn away from. I'm Nice Pay Day for the team so he tried to convince. The African American Celtics stay and Russell said going home. The way players gave it consideration but but in the end decided to play the game. Seven White Celtics played including Bob cousy. Who didn't protest? I have no explanation for this feeling as I do about social justice being Cotonou team when Gary pomerantz originally asked cousy about about the game he said he didn't remember it cousy said why did I play. What was I thinking it was an exhibition game? Why didn't I say something I think he I was so focused on being Bob cousy? Some of the most essential American history of the second half of the century passed him by when over his his head. He was focused on winning. He was focused on his endorsements and his brand and it just.

And I'm like, you know, I I'm on here representing sporty kings of media returned mainly aurea former writer, and he has written five Kentucky Derby is one of my partners. He works for naira and FOX as well Jesse goal of very respected handicapper for the last I'll say forty years, and I'm probably doing him in Justice on that. 'cause he says he watched races up four he's a partner, and we were conversing after the race cross the wire and and the objection signed came on. And we couldn't have disagreed more. All three of us agreed on one thing. We never thought the winner would come down. I'm like, there's no way they take him down. But we did disagree on this and Richard Bailey or Jesse go very very adamantly said that he should not have come down. I said he should he should come down. But I didn't think the stores would disqualify maximum. Security because a lot of times, you know, in every sport the referees. Let you play a little a little more. Once you go into the playoffs and the NBA finals or the NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl the referees kinda keep their flagging their pocket a little more than they normally would. But it was a foul. And and you know, I think a lot of people when you look back at the actual drifting out of maximum security. It could have been a lot worse, and that everyone should agree on that were grateful for because we didn't want it safety. I and I think that decision to take maximum security down. It was the right? Call maximum security should have been disqualified because of that infraction on war of Lil. I've read this morning already Sam that a lot of people, and I'm getting the feeling just reading their messages social media's blowing up this. I'm getting the feeling that it's not so much. That it wasn't a foul that they don't people don't like the way it went about. And they don't like seeing country house back into a derby win. And I think that's unfortunate. A lot has been said about why didn't war wills jockey Tyler gaffe, Lille Clave, Sal. Well, maybe he did maybe he claimed maybe the Stewart why didn't the stewards put up an inquiry. Maybe they got an objection from jockey. And they were thinking putting up the inquiry sign, and they just decided look we'll put the claim a foul up and look at it. We don't need the inquiry could have been a number of things they took their time looking at over. If it if it truly is horse safety first that wasn't infraction. And and I thought war of will was cost of placing. I'm not so sure about the disqualification behind that the AT. I'm not sure you go all the way back to long range toddy, and then Seattle oughta horse, and I think if that inquiry are that. That infraction would've just been long range toddy. I'm not sure maximum security comes down. But I think he can argue war of will at still have a horse. So looking at that in full having time to digest it. But I'm gonna tell you there's a lot of people on the other side of the fence on that maximum security was the best horse absolutely in that race. He was the best horse. And and I don't disagree with anyone that says that but that wasn't infraction. And I think the stewards got it. Right. Even though there was no right decision. They had a very difficult decision. There was no, right. Call on that. Because I think a lot of, you know, look a lot of new fans watch the Kentucky Derby, and they don't understand that he didn't cause the twelve countries the twenty country house any in Peterman whatsoever. But country has got to be put up in front of him. I think that's a lot of the misconceptions from a lot of new rates fans. But at the end of the day Sam, I think. They got it. Right. And I'm probably in order to that. I do believe though, it shouldn't have taken twenty two minutes. And I do believe their explanation should've been should've been on the air to the viewers around the country, and they should have put up the inquiry themselves. If I agree looks like. Looks like they didn't see it. Yeah. Well, and you know, what the stewards actually in in the steward's room, the stewarts have three people that are watching three different angles. And I I'm not gonna try determine what was talked about after they crossed the wire if they were either looking back at the top of the stretch before they said anything or before they get anything. I'm not I agree. The inquiry science should have been up the way this was handled with the jockey claim afoul. Not the inquiry. What the twenty five minutes away with the non explanation, by the way, even after the races in a press conference. It was just a statement rather than an explanation the betting public didn't get to see what they saw. And why they did it the betting public didn't get to hear what they saw. And why they did it afterwards. I thought they handled it very poorly the actual call it self. However, I think they got right. Well, yeah. We had Jay Primin on prior to you. And he said I said, well, this is very disappointing because we would have had undefeated horse going to the break nece. And he said, well, we still if they both go we still have a little drama there in the sense that, but you really can't envision the sixty five to one shot went in weakness. And you know, I think that some of that look I think some of the frustration with the betting public is that country house wasn't the best horse in the Kentucky Derby and gonna win country house ran great. I don't care. What is where he ran great. He put himself in a good spot early on from afar. Outside post. I'm not gonna take anything away from country house is he's the derby winner deservedly. I could argue that either way. But when I look at you know, I think some of the frustration. If that was improbable or game winner or roads or somebody that was second and they got put up. I'm not sure there'd be as much as much frustration today as as

Bracketology: Saint Mary's earns a spot with upset
"Susan Saint Mary's headed to the NC double a basketball tournament. After a stunning sixty to forty seven win over top ranked Gonzaga in the west coast conference tournament title game in Las Vegas last night. It was the Gaels I ever upset of top ranked team, and we are joined now by our friend. Dave Lewis radio analyst for the Saint Mary's Gaels down in Vegas about to return home big celebration on the Moraga campus at twelve fifteen this afternoon, Dave how could a team that lost earlier this season by forty eight points to Gonzaga on the road and lost by fourteen at home beat them by thirteen. Points last night. I know. I was thinking about the lines of dumb and dumber where you're telling you. There's a chance the whole one in a million, and we need to one in a million, but everything needed to fall into place, and we went through our checklist of hey, we're going to beat them this happened. They've gotta sup- poorly from three we've got our rebound. We've got a really hot tomorrow. We've got to play out of our minds and not everything was perfect in that on that checklist. That really did enough to win and barely caught those eggs on an off night. Yeah. The zags averaging ninety points a game and they score forty seven. Randy Benson after the game that this is what he envisioned although that was hard hard to believe. But I mean every coach is going to be confident. The Cal coaching staff is probably confident heading into the Pac twelve tournament today, but still this. This was a stunning stunning upset. Well, they certainly made some defensive adjustments. They've got a an NBA player a lottery pick, and it really hot you Mora and held him to fix shot took away his aggressiveness and really force them to scramble defensively on the post. We have some inside. And they're very good, but lose a few inches on the post. So we force them to react and scramble and guide to some big shots down the stretch. And so many unsung heroes are most outstanding player was a guy. That is a senior starting for the first time Jordan, either became a shot blocking and defensive presence. And Tommy Cousy is a walk on. And he was channeling his inner Steve Nash down the stretch of that game. Got a superstar fulsome Jordan everything fell into place real magical night. I'll never forget it. Dave how far can Saint Mary's go in the tournament? Well, yeah, it depends on what the seating is. And we were hearing so projections of being twelve last night so every year at twelve to five, but if you can be a ten or maybe eleven certainly seen them having a shot to win a game. If you can get a draw like that. And then as we saw last year with Loyola and sister Jean making the run, you know, anything can happen. So there's certainly a competent bunch, and nobody believed that they could pull that off other than the guys in blue. That was pretty cool to be a part of. Hey, Dave last question. What does this mean for recruiting? They not only knocked off the number one team in the nation. They did it in a nationally televised game on ESPN a lot of people saw. The the gym has always been kind of a negative in terms of recruiting mcewen's, not a glamorous spot, even the facilities at Santa Clara better than them. But yeah, they sell the program and not the gym they play in. And obviously we've relied on a lot of Ozzy influence over the years. Certainly big. It's a huge deal was up a long shot. And you know, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. There was no curfew last night. We're a little groggy coming home. But never forget. Thanks, dave. A pleasure. Dave lewis. The Saint Mary's Gaels radio analyst, and they're all celebrating an amazing performance. It really was extraordinarily extraordinary and again big celebration on the Moraga campus twelve fifteen this afternoon
"cousy" Discussed on WEEI
"There for the basketball pain in your life. You ought to pick up. It's called the last pass Cousy Russell the Celtics, and what matters most in the N Gary Pomerantz joins us right now. He's the author of the book and conducted one hundred fifty interviews for this, including Fifty-three with the Celtics legend Bob Cousy himself. Gary, how are you doing great? How you doing? I'm well, I'm well. So one of the things about the book which stood out to me. Is it Bob Cousy told you he felt he did not do enough to help Bill Russell. So ended up writing a letter after reading a book on race call between the world in me. And look for those who don't know Bill. Russell went through stuff in Boston. Eight people ended up breaking into his house sprang graffiti on house housing defecating on in the man's home. I mean, there were some terrible things that happened to Bill. Russell. Terrible things. I mean, it was horrific stuff. And no wonder Bill Russell has said through the years. You know, I didn't play for Boston. I played for the Celtics. This is really a story knew about what matters in the end Bill. Russell and Bob Cousy that's the Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig of that great, Celtics dynasty. It's hard to believe that Cousy is now ninety and Bill Russell eighty four. And and working on the last pass, I interviewed Cousy fifty three times as you say, and and you know in his house on the phone. He would call me sometimes. And in say, you know, it's all number fourteen calling and more often than Nadi. He had been thinking about our last interview. And he had more that he wanted to say about it. And usually it was about race. And russell. Bill. Russell took three years to respond to the letter in which Cousy tried to to apologize. Why did he take that long? Well, I'm not sure Russell is not in great health. And you know, he's lived in epic life five MVP awards those eleven NBA championships in the capstone came in two thousand eleven when Barack Obama awarded Bill Russell the presidential medal of freedom, which is, you know, the highest civilian honor this country bestows, it's the American equivalent of knighthood, and you know, Cousy was the captain of that team. And it's important to remember he was perceived as one of the good guys by the league's early African American players. In fact in nineteen fifty when he was a rookie. This is only three years post. Jackie robinson. He roomed with Chuck Cooper forward. From Duquesne was the first black player drafted by an NBA team. And they developed a great lifelong friendship. You know with Russell Cousy. Now, this has been in him this regret for fifty years and more he wishes that his captain of the Celtics. He'd spoken out publicly against the racism that that Russel was facing in Boston and around the league, and he wishes that privately pulled Russell aside and said Russia had got your back, but he didn't do it. He didn't say that. And one of the many things that separates Guzzi from most great athletes is that, you know, he's not embellishing or burnishing the stories. He tells about himself to the contrary in this case, he's drawing attention to a to a failing or a flaw. You know, he saying, you know, I did not do enough. And it's his final declaration. I should have done more. I am reading this book that you wrote Gary did not realize how important and how great a player Bob Cousy was not just for the Celtics, but for the NBA, and you like it him to Alexander Hamilton in what he did the NBA Hamilton. Of course is the is the forgotten founding father until the great stage play carrying his name comes out, and that's sort of been Cousy. You know, his story. He's been lost time. You know, in the way basketball history is remembered and told, but here's why Bob Cousy matter so much I his theatricality is the so called Houdini, the hardwood, you know, those no look passes the the dribbling behind his back. He was kinda like James Dean or Elvis in the fifties pushing against the conservative norms in the game. And in every, you know, no look pass that Kyrie Irving throws today, and every, you know, imaginative moved at Steph curry or James. Jordan makes there's a little bit of Cousy flowing through it. Cousy also founded the NBA players association in the nineteen fifties. And as a matter of comparison in Cousy is last year with the Celtics nineteen sixty three he earned thirty five thousand dollars last year, Steph curry and LeBron James thirty five million dollars. So the decimal point has moved three places to the right and also in the fifties. That's a long time ago Cousy and his coach the legendary read our back traveled abroad as representatives of the US State Department selling the the American game of basketball in Europe, and in Asia and Africa, and you know, last year on NBA rosters opening night. There were a hundred nee players from forty to foreign nations. And territories that's a big a big footprint that Cousy has left. Gary Pomerantz is our guest right here on the newest Greg show. He's the author of the book the last pass Cousy Russell the Celtics, and what matters most in the end Bill. Russell called Boston as a city a flea market. Of racism, you didn't get opportunity to interview him though, you got to talk to one hundred and fifty different people. If you could interview Bill, what would you wanna ask? Well, you know, I tried hard to get to him, you know, including sending him a letter to his home in Seattle through the Celtics in which essentially I asked him to questions one to describe the evolution of his relationship with Bob Cousy and to what was his reaction to the letter that Cousy sent him in February two thousand sixteen way, back in two thousand one ESPN did a sport segment on our sports century segment. I'm Bill Russell is one of the greatest athletes of the twentieth century. Russell did not agree to be interviewed for it. But Bob Cousy did in the cameras came to his house in Worcester. Mass and Cruces talking on camera and kind of a breezy way. Remember two thousand and one this year that this happened. He's talking in a breezy way about Russell's extraordinary athleticism is a shot blocker and rebounder. But then the conversation shifts to race and Cousy says, you know, I should have been more sensitive to Russ's anguish. And then he just stops any pauses, and you can see on camera his face facial muscles twitching, and he just breaks down sobbing right there on camera holding his head in his hands two months later. He saw Russell at a celebrity golf tournament in southern California. And Cousy is never been sure through the decades, whether Russell's gonna give him a big embrace when he sees them or or the famous Russell glower that we all saw when he walked onto the court in pre-game introductions in this case Russell gave him a big embrace and sat down at the coffee shop breakfast table with Cousy and he told Cousy and what Cousy views is the most meaningful conversation. They ever had that he he saw Cousy interview on ESPN. And and told him, you know, not to worry about it there. There's nothing he could have done to make Russell's life easier. During those seven years they were together as teammates Cousy could feel his his pain his own pain, releasing and he hoped that would take their relationship to a higher ground, but it didn't. And it was about fourteen fifteen years later two thousand fifteen and sixteen seventeen when I was interviewing Cousy that. You know, this was all coming up again. Cousy is watching TV. And and and he sees these flashpoints in American race relations coming up on his screen, Ferguson. The rise of black lives matter Trayvon Martin, Tamir rice and any time. Bob Cousy thinks about race he thinks about his personal life and he returns to Russell. I mean, look it's rare in American life for ninety year old white man to reconsider race and how it played out in his life. But that's what Cousy is doing. And that's why one morning after a restless night thinking about Russell in two thousand sixteen. He took a pen and pad and and wrote a page and a half letter to Russell apologizing for his violence. What about ran our back? I mean, you know, you've got Bob Cousy who felt this way. But rent was running the team. He was the one guy in charge of the hotels. And I mean, what about read roll well role? Can you know, look the Celtics were the first team to reg credit to to draft an African American player in a black coach why black coach Bill Russell nineteen sixty six the first all black starting lineup in December of nineteen sixty four. I think right read is is well established for his racial credentials as a fair minded, man. But Red Auerbach was old school read our backyard to about pragmatism in the bottom line. And he told his players look don't don't talk about controversial things stay out of the the social stuff and the political stuff because they were trying to fill Boston Garden. They didn't want to alienate fans white fans and empty Boston Garden. So so there was that part of red to and and you know, there was a game in in October. Nineteen sixty one played in Lexington Kentucky an exhibition game against the St Louis hawks where the Celtics stayed in a hotel players black and white. We're able to lodge their, but when fat Sanders and Sam Jones to the African American Celtics went to the coffee shop, they were denied service. They went back and told Russell about it. And and they agreed. They weren't playing. They were not gonna play and they got on a plane and flew back home. Even after our back spent about two hours trying to convince them to stay, you know, there was a big payday. It wasn't about the university of Kentucky was just about some as he said to bid waitress, but the seven white Celtics including Cousy played when I asked Cousy about it. He had almost no memory of it. He said, why would I have played, you know? And he he he says maybe that speaks to my sensibilities my sensitivities at that time. So, you know, it's complex. Gary. This was fun. I appreciate your time. Another great book. I enjoyed there's lives their life's work on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Chuck. No, you're gifted man, you know, how to write some good books. Well, I appreciate it. It was fun to talk about with the and thanks for having me on the show. We all right. Merry christmas. Thank you you too. Bye. Bye. Gary Pomerantz, author of the last past Cousy Russell the Celtics, and what matters most in the end would make a great Christmas gift for the sports fan in your life up next.

"Listen, I always said that kind of a love hate relationship, and he did a kind of ignore me glare at one this case van than fluids arms. And and we talked about this first meaningful conversation, we probably have a hand in a relationship. And he basically said, coz, whatever, you might have done wouldn't have been helpful. He said what he had to do to make me feel better. I guess that I wish that any hoped. This conversation would lead to a higher ground in their relationship at deeper friendship. But it really didn't. I thought about if a fifty sixteen years, and I quote him a Lennox for years ago pretty much doing a makeup Cousy hand wrote that letter basically said less. Thus. I know we've never been pen pals, and I'm sorry about that. It was Miley sponsor ability to reach out to you. And hopefully share the pain that you had joined that at all minimize it. Whatever. However, I didn't do that saw about that. And that was it. Well, then six months passed without a response and then a year and then two years and then two and a half years later in August of this year two thousand eighteen. Cousy got a call on a Sunday night at home. It was an old somewhat in feeble voice saying Bob, it's Bill Russell. I'm calling to see how you are. They talked for about ten or twelve minutes, according to Cousy. And then he asked the question Russ. I sent you a letter couple years ago. Did you get it and Bill Russell said? Yes, I did. Thank you. Nothing. More was Russell's response brief because he was angry not angry at all Cousy wouldn't speculate. I asked him if Bill Russell simple response of. Yes was sufficient. Yes. Absolutely. For three seasons. Satch sanders. Observed the relationship between Bob Cousy and Bill Russell up close. I asked him if he thinks Cousy owed Russell in apology. No, Cousy Odem Posey. But a do think that Cousy because he was Cousy thought he could do more. And then started thinking that he should have done more because he's a man of conscience and. Could you have done more? But he feels more. And that's what really counts. I do a lot of meditating these days thinking about the all day, but I notice that blank out the negative much as I can. And I focus on the positives. When our conversation is over Bob Cousy shows me to adore automated Russia's in as he retrieves a plate of food neighbor covered in tin foil and left for him on the front step. I say goodbye shake his hand the one that through so many perfect passes to his teammates the one that held the pan as he wrote a letter to Bill Russell. That's only a game scary walk.

"Exhibition game in Lexington Kentucky Satch Sanders from members what happened at the team hotel before the game, we've gone through the eat, and this won't really can't. So have you people? They weren't happy about it. And they gathered in Russell's room at the hotel Russell and Sanders along with Casey Jones and Sam Jones decided not to play then read didn't wanna turn away from a nice pay day for the team. So he tried to convince the African Americans Celtics to stay and Russell said or going home the way players gave it consideration. But in the end it the play the game seven white Celtics played including Bob Cousy who didn't protest. I have no explanation for this feeling as I do about social Justice being captain of the team. When Gary Pomerantz originally asked Cousy about the game. He said he didn't remember it Cousy said why did I play? What was I thinking it was an exhibition game. Why did I say something I think he was so focused on being Bob Cousy some of the most essential American history of the second half of the century passed him by when over his head. He was focused on winning. He was focused on his endorsements and his brand. And it just went by. Meanwhile, Bill Russell spoke more and more publicly about civil rights and the treatment of African Americans. He called Boston a racist city. The press went to Russell for quotes, but elected because he exuded arrogance confidence and all the other things that black guys should not. A lot of missions in one thousand nine hundred sixty three someone broke into Bill Russell's home, scrawled insults on the walls and defecated in his bed. Russell war his anger. Even more prominently on his sleeve. We must was the ultimate angry black man, and I didn't blame them then. And I blame him. Unless now Cousy says it pained him to watch African Americans struggle for acceptance and inclusion, but he remained quiet, and Cousy says Russell's anger made it hard for them to form a friendship like the ones Cousy had enjoyed with Chuck Cooper and some of his other black teammates. Let's go have a Bill. Let's go to the movie together whenever socialize outside of the unit. I was a senior member I had a good relationship with the media always have. So I could have reached out, and perhaps shit is paying a little bit with you know, I never did that with us. Bob cousy. Retired at the end of the sixty two sixty three season. After yet another successful title run. He and Russell had led the Celtics to six NBA championships in their seven seasons. Together. The Celtics gathered for a post-season dinner and Bill Russell took to the podium to speak. And what Russell said was you meet very few men in life like Bob Cousy. I consider Cousy like a brother and Russell became emotional at this point Cousy doesn't really remember that either a hub is this should have been special to me when I read what he said it put back a slight memory, and it what a tear to my eye. But I don't know why. I don't remember it more specifically other than on ninety weakened years. Oh, that's something to do with it. You know, when I read these quotes to Cousy during an interview Cousy just started shaking his head. He said, what was I thinking? Why didn't I get? Up and go across the room and give Russ a hug in the fall of nineteen sixty three the Celtics became Bill Russell's team unless that had happened much earlier Russell retired as a player in nineteen sixty-nine after thirteen seasons in the NBA. He had earned eleven championship rings. Cousy did a lot of thinking over three decades about how he'd fallen short as a team leader. But he didn't talk about it until a two thousand one ESPN interview about Russell, and he was talking and a breezy way about Russell's extraordinary athleticism, but the topic shifted to race why should have been much more sensitive to wrestle anguish. We talk. And he just broke down sobbing he buried his head in his hands on camera. A couple months later, Cousy attended to charity golf event in Florida. Russell who had seen Cousy ESPN interview was there too. And Cousy had no idea what to expect..

"Only a game. I'm Craig Calcaterra end of the day when you sitting reviewing your life. You have a lot of league that's to how you should've could've done things better that could be almost anyone. But it's not it's Bob Cousy on the basketball court. It's hard to imagine. How the hall of Famer could have done much better. He was team captain for the first six Boston Celtics titles. But Cousy has been thinking a lot lately about his relationship with former teammate Bill Russell, I felt some guilt all the not reaching out to them. And that's what I did. Eventually. Here's only a game scary Wallich on a cold autumn morning. Bob, Cousy greets me at the front door as the leaves fall around his home in Worcester. Massachusettes? He's lived there alone since his wife died five years ago. I shake his hand and ask them how he's doing never ask ninety year old that question, he says, he brandishes Cain for emphasis. We sit at his enormous dining room table and talk about his early days on the Celtics his hands move like he's throwing passes to invisible teammates as he discusses his rookie year. Well, we had some talented players. We had some not. So town play Cousy says that his fellow rookie. Chuck Cooper was a five or six on a ten scale, talent wise, but Cooper was something else. Jackie Robinson, broke the color line in baseball in nineteen forty seven three years laid up on a wall around got up at the meeting and said, the solid Chuck COPA undo Cain. Cousy had no black friends growing up in a Manhattan tenement. He had no black teammates in high school or college. Now, he was roommates with the first black player selected in the NBA draft. They went to movies, listen to jazz and drank at bars their bond was tested on February twenty eighth nineteen fifty two after. A game in Raleigh. And he wasn't allowed to legislate hotel with us, and Chuck, and I somehow found out that there was a sleep going through Raleigh that night at twelve thirty to New York with a connection of Boston Cousy and Cooper went to Union Station to wait for the sleeper train who is a bit. And after three or four biz it's like midnight, and we have to go with they made their way to the restroom Cousy was unprepared for what he saw. Dive big white signs would a blackout one pointing light says colored the other pointing lifts says white, and I was stunned. I didn't I was ashamed to be white. I didn't know what to say to them. I said come on. Let's go out we go out to the end and a platform, and we paid together. Their friendship grew off the court and on. It Cooper was a good player. But Cousy point guard was beginning to transform the league. This is the nineteen fifties. And he's a little bit like Elvis, Presley music or James Dean and film. That's writer, Gary Pomerantz. He's interviewed Cousy over fifty times. He's a renegade pushing out against the conservative norms triple in behind his back and and throw a no look passes. He was adding sort of a jolt of caffeine to the NBA a jolt of style. But the Celts were only slightly better than mediocre. They were a team struggling to find itself. The Celtics needed a big man to make it to the next level in a trade after the nineteen fifty-six draft the Celtics acquired center Bill Russell less change the dynamic in every way. He was a fearsome shot blocker. He put a trauma on opposing shooters. And he was a great rebounder an opponent would take a shot and miss and there's Russell rising rising six ten long lean and springy getting the rebound and half turning and snap passing the outlet to Cousy. Russell and Cousy created a fast break style that was nearly indefensible these are in many ways the ultimate teammates. They were both murderously competitive and very quickly. The Celtics emerged as a force to be reckoned with Russell and coups road to the tight relationship on the court. That's forward. Satch sanders. He joined the Celtics in nineteen sixty the hill respect for each other. That was clear off the court. They were not spending a lot of time in each other's company. Racial tensions were high in the US that carried over into some NBA locker rooms. But Sanders says that wasn't the. Case with the Celtics Cousy says read our back who he alone called by his first name Arnold, created clubhouse harmony in a rather unusual way..
Joel Embiid's struggles continue in Sixers' loss to Raptors
"Lot of hype around this raptors Sixers matchup last night. It was a close game during the first half second half, the raptors pulled away not much apprising about the result. But what I found. So surprising was the poor performance of Joel Embiid. You think he tweeted after this one not at all, especially if it was anything about the raptors, what is show me is that the Toronto Raptors have productive depth upfront that can compete on both ends of the floor pass Cousy Jakko, obviously surge a box plan, the small boss center was able to play against Joel Embiid one on one on the post, and then take it to him ofensive -ly. Yup. Big time score. And then you see in the pick and roll koala Linter taking advantage of Joel Embiid with Valentine's who had a big game off the bench and again right here. And the other thing it made me realize that they miss Dario Saric front height. Another guy. What high another guy will ball another guy to give fouls in? So Joel Embiid against the raptors they terrific job. Neutralizer him. On both ends of the floor. And that's why they had a commanding victory. I'm not gonna put all of this on Embiid. I felt they didn't post him up that much. They didn't really like run place for him in the second half. I felt like they would give him the ball. And they run someone around him for a handoff. It didn't feel like they were featuring him at that point. Well, here's you can't necessarily get feature. When it got his guard and us pushing you instead of you posting twelve feet are on lane line is pushing you out sixteen to eighteen feet and usually on a nightly basis in beats advantage. Besides the fact, he's Uber talented is he's usually bigger or stronger, then a guy he's guarding or vice versa. Search was not as big strong enough to push him away from the floor. Now, he has the athleticism and keep it from driving around on that one clip you show search offensively taking it right here bully ball in NB fails, bang bang. So it's not only on MVP cl-. Clearly, but as the game progresses, Ben Simmons, not a three point shooter can't shoot free throws to take the ball out of his hands. Jimmy Butler was terrific. So I was Leonard those guys scored over thirty five points, but the whole in the coverage yesterday was that God is playing like an MVP candidate usually didn't play. So well at Toronto. And that was Joel another thing the Sixers defensively there was so confusing is at one point was four for four from three and he kept getting open threes if he's four three he's quiet Leonard like, maybe maybe put guy near you know, it was it was odd bad performance from the Sixers especially in the second

US-China trade truce seen boosting stock market
"Brexit altogether for more. We're joined by Bloomberg's EMMY unused are actor, David merrit. Who's with us in the studio. Good morning. David great to have you with us. So. Bloomberg is talking about a fresh Brexit battle that may have to face this week. What is that about? Well, there's a technical issue that the labor party now raised this is about the legal advice at the government's been given behind closed doors about whether the what the implications are of they're still now the attorney general Geoffrey Cox, he'll be talking to lawmakers later on today. The conservative party is saying we will not release mentioned, it's privileged. Client, attorney information. The little potus saying this is too big a deal for us to be in the dark about we want to hear about it. Now. Some of these details, of course, Lee had leaked over the weekend. It seemed unconfirmed reports about what this advice says why the conservatives not wanting to release it because it's obviously makes quite uncomfortable. Reading it includes apparently an assertion that the Irish backstop suggestion could trap Britain indefinitely into this customs arrangement with the European Union. So that's potentially explosive. It means yet more negative sentiment. Around this deal, and it's perhaps persuade even more Tory. Backbench MP's to vote against the government in this big vote next week. How's this week on to play out? David. I mean, the debates officially starts tomorrow parliament rights when it comes to the divorce deal. That's right. We're going to see many hours of debate on this issue led by various ministers in the house of Commons this week. This question about the legal legal argument is actually a little bit more long-term, even if there was a motion to try to force the government. I think we've got time for that to go through parliament's and hoping that just the publicity around it may force the government's hand. But yes, we're going to see lots of debates in parliament as the week goes on. And maybe as we get closer to that vote on the eleventh of December. There are reports in much of the British press about whether the rich are going to go ahead with it. If the numbers still looks so bad is she gonna keep plowing on and have a vote, which he may lose by one hundred two hundred votes. I think that's the big. Question. This week is is it really sustainable for. Mrs may go ahead with something which is looking about all people are going to start changing their mind. This idea of a confidence vote coming straight off to you know, this may actually serve in Mrs Maes favor because it may shop in the minds of some payroll MP's who think will you know, what I'm actually going to pull back from the brink at the last minute. Just very briefly David are you saying there's a possibility? The December eleventh vote might not happen various reports the sun newspaper suggesting some ministers are lobbying for that to happen. Maybe postpone it maybe asked MRs may to go back to Europe because the European Council meets a few days after towards the end of next week. Voters on winnable. There's nothing I can do I need to have some more concessions as you said earlier. Of course, the European leaders have said, it's this deal or no Brexit all so they've been pretty firm. Yeah. They've been saying no nine talk all along. Thanks so much David merrit for talkies through these different strands. Hey, when it comes to the Brexit story this morning.

Now, we're not seeing much of a retracing though, prices per is symbolic for OPEC that one of the. Members that have been there since the nine hundred sixty s are leaving. But in terms of producing seems like they account for less than two percent. So the direct impact may not be that big. Yeah. Absolutely.

"And it's about the relationship between Bob Cousy and Bill Russell back in the day when they played together for the Boston, Celtics. And that was the interesting dynamic with with Bill. Russell had to put up with back in the day living in Boston, and the racism and everything and Bob Cousy was one of the guys who stepped up and stood up for him. But at ninety years old, I guess he thinks he didn't do enough now feeling a little bit of guilt. So let's get to the author of this. Great new book the last pass. It has Gary Pomerantz what's up Gerry? How're you doing their day? Good to talk to you again. And I thoroughly enjoyed your book about Wiltord point game. And I read it many times, and it sets my book. So that was outstanding book. Well, we'll and Russell had their battles one hundred forty two times over their career. And you know, very different results will was the great individualism big numbers one two NBA titles. And Russell was more. The consummate team player won eleven titles. But they were it was like watching the civil war ironclad. The monitor Merrimac do battle on. It was great stuff. So what inspired you to write this book? And you know, Bob Cousy giving his reflections on his relationship with with Bill. Russell and Bob Cousy a six foot tall white kid from the suburbs. And and Russell all near seven foot tall guy from Oakland, California. How they get to be friends and and the reflections of Bob Cousy. And how you look back on it. He thinks he could have done more to to be a good friend to Russell and to help him back. Then. Yeah. You know, it's really a book about what matters Indian Russell Cousy. That's the the Ruth the great Celtics dynasty. It's hard to believe that Cousy is now ninety years old. Eighty four. Know going through a deep self reflection at Celtic nations, and it's rare in American life for year old white man to reconsider race and how it plays out in his life. But that's what what is doing but any has some regrets about those seven season. He's with Russell on the Celtics. I read a story. One time about Cooper who I believe was the first black player in the NBA. Jackie Robinson of the National Basketball Association. And there were there were places where he couldn't get on the subway because it was whites only and Bob Cousy used to walk with them and go onto the subway and ride with him because he was so offended by it. Yeah. You know, one of the things that makes Cousy remarkable. News. You know, she was considered one of the good guys by the league's early African American players, and yet still has regrets about Russell Chuck Cooper. And Tuesday were roommates in one thousand nine hundred fifty when we're rookies as you say three years post. Jackie Robinson, Jackie Robinson, desegregation of baseball and forty seven. But the NBA was not a big deal. Then it was kind of a lounge out the league in search of itself. And so all of this happened beneath the media radar and Cousy will tell a story about a plane in nineteen fifty two a game in a neutral site in Raleigh, North Carolina. And after the game Chuck Cooper as an African American was not allowed to stay at the segregated hotel. Where the the Celtics were lagging so he told the coach Red Auerbach. I'm just gonna take the late night, sleep or training from Raleigh to New York. And when when you guys fly there to New York tomorrow, I'll just meet you there. Well, Cousy heard about this. And and asked our bats if he could travel with Cooper on the train, and they did and go to the rally late night past midnight. Hardly anyone there. There have a few beers moved to relieve themselves. So they go to the men's room. I should say men's room for the first time to saw the signs colored pointed whites together he'd read about it. But he'd never experienced such a thing before himself, and he told me that at that moment, he was embarrassed embarrassed to be white, and he and Cooper fly grins and they walked to the fall only outdoor. Platform looked around was there. No to say, and they both unzip the. Nightside himself who likes to say? It was our Rosa Parks moment that we couldn't tell anybody about. But you know, this is this happens beneath the radar. These are the small moments that speak to you know, the larger truths of of who was as he was trying to figure out how to handle the race relations in America at that time. But it sounds like especially considering the era in the generation. It was Bob Cousy did about all he couldn't and went and went further than almost anybody else would. So what why does he feel bad and think he could've done more? Well, you know, where young we aspire to be a great man as we got a little older and certainly Cousy now at ninety. Context you realize life is not eternal on newest spider to be a good, man. And I think that's where Cousy is right now he's been wrestling with this for a long time since regrets. Are really twofold one he wishes better Celtic, captain he had he had spoken out publicly against the racism that Russell was facing in Boston. And around the two wishes that that privately he pulled Russell aside and said Russ, I've got your back, and you know, the title of my book is called the last pass. And that refers to a letter that Cousy center Russell, just two two and a half years ago. Gary Pomerantz, the author of the brilliant new book the last pass about the relationship between Bob Cousy and Bill Russell, I'm with at NBC, sports radio and NBC sports radio dot com. I read a story I Bill Russell when I read his book years ago, he said after a game one time he brought his father to a game in Boston and his father walked by the showers, and he saw his son Bill and John Havlicek. They were in the shower together, and they were laughing and water splashing on both of them in the soap and all that. And and Bill said he looked back in his father was crying. And he said what's the matter dad, and he said, I think that I would ever see a black man in a white man showering together he broke down and cried when he saw that. Happen next fish and game in Shreveport. Remember Bill Russell is from Louisiana who was born there in the days of Louisiana and moved to Oakland, California where his father worked in the shipyards Russell at the time. And the move would have been about eleven years old. But you know, Russell has has. He demands respect. And he he used to say it's more important to understand could be understood, and it was almost he put that as a cloak to it over himself a cloak of mystery. Doc would say about Russell that. You know? Well, of course, considered Russell the greatest player in NBA history. And he would say the real Bill a difficult man to now. But one worth knowing Russell was famous for not signing autographs a pharmacy would shake their homes but not sign their autographs. He wasn't always as on mom on Cousy was much beloved by the white Boston sports writers are not town in that period. All the sports writers for the Boston dailies worldwide, and they would say cruises team. Well, it wasn't. If it was. It was Russell's sport Cousy retired from the Celtics nineteen sixty three of the following training camp. When the shelf Celtics arrived without him. A phone went up to us on. So how you guys gonna be able to do this without shoes? Russell thought to himself mop know that I've been the league. For the last three years. And Russell left will always say that you know, he play for Boston. He played for the Celtics. They guaranteed. Hang on got some more questions where he can you segment with me.

Calling shots. NBC on Twitter is how you get at us. Gary Pomerantz, author of the last pass Cousy Russell the Celtics and what matters in the end on Twitter. It's Gary m Pomerantz joins me. Now, it's going on man. How you doing? You're in great. Keep could be on the show with you. I'm so happy to have you got a copy of the book. It's awesome skimming through it. And listen, I'm from New York. I'm not supposed to like the Celtics. Right. Like that's ingrained in me. I'm not supposed to. But there is just something about that generation, and that organization why did you want to write this book? When you know my last book was about another dynasty the football dynasty in the nineteen seventies. Pittsburgh Steelers would mean, Joe Greene and Franco Harris, Terry Bradshaw that book was very much about football's gifts and costs. And I thought if I do a companion piece what you know, which which empire, which dynasty, and I thought the twenties forties fifties. Unfortunately, you know, those guys had long passed and I thought basketball. Well, of course, the Celtics won eleven NBA championships in that thirteen year period between nineteen fifty seven and nineteen sixty nine and it's really a book about what matters in the end Bill. Russell and Bob Cousy where the Babe Ruth and Lou Garrick of this dynasty. It's really hard to believe that Cousy is now ninety Russell's eighty four and Cousy been going to a deep self examination sort of checking off his end of life to do list. And he's been thinking a lot about his regrets. And he's got more than a few about his relationship with Bill. Russell. Or can we dive without giving too much away? Because we do want people to still read the book. What worse gimme like a regret that he had. Well, remember, Cousy was the white captain of this team. And he was beloved in Boston Boston all the sports writers at the Bailey at that time where we're white. And they said it was crazy team Cousy town, and you know, now Cousy looks back with deep regret that even as read our backward. The coach that great team which was telling his players. Don't get involved in politics. Don't get involved in controversy our backwards trying to fill Boston Garden, not empty, and he was afraid that he would alienate track pants team players would. So you've been with that Cousy wishes. He had spoken out publicly about the racism that Russell was facing in Boston. Wishes as team captain. He pulled Russell aside privately and said Russ, I've got your back look teeth. I it's rare in America for ninety year old white man to reconsider race and how it played out in his life. But that's what Cousy is doing. Now. That's really cool. He is Gary Pomerantz on Twitter. Gary m Pomerantz the book the last past Cousy Russell, the Celtics. What matters in the end came out just about a week ago. So a lot of race and regret is what this book is about. I wanna I wanna ask you this though. So in putting this together, you know, I'm assuming you spoke about Cousy whatever how many people did you speak with to be able to get all these stories. One hundred and fifty interviews, and I tell you interviewed Cousy fifty three times over a two and a half year period. I interviewed him number times at his home in Worcester mass where he lives alone in this cavernous house. That's that's you know, sort of filled with that goes in and memories portrait of his late wife Missy on the wallowing. I interview ahead with Cousy was remarkable. It was four hours long, and you know, with Cousy he is emotionally and intellectually speak, and he was introspective. He was intense and emotional just as he'd been as a player he was all in. And that's when I decided that the way to tell the story of this dynasty was through the contents of the captain Cousy. How is ninety years old, you know, still still sharp? How is he very Sarpi still driving exact last week? I went with him to Celtics practice Brad Stevens read the book and has has been very complimentary about it. He wanted his players to meet Cousy until you're we got twenty copies of the book, and all it gave it to all the players, and they were giving their assignment to read it over the next two weeks before Kuch showed up, and I must tell you. It was remarkable to to be there when Cousy with his canes or folding chair in front of the three rows in the film room. And you know, you've got players as young as twenty year old Jason Tatum looking at this ninety year old man, it's like looking at Christmas past. And I found myself transfixed not by watching Cousy, but by watching the players faces and and then when it was when it was done they formed a receiving line much. If you would see it as a wedding and one by one ship Cousy hand and then afterwards, Kyrie Irving get a one on one with Cousy for Celtics dot com. And I was there to watch it. You know, two masters of the point discussing the positions for, you know, finer points, and and it was just a beautiful multi generational basketball moment thinking about some of the things that we get to do in the field that we chose right? Like, if I would've told you I don't know thirty years ago that you were going to become friendly with Bob Cousy NB driving around with them. I don't know if you ever would have thought that was going to happen. You know? But this was Cousy place in basketball history needs to be remembered. The Alexander Hamilton of the NBA Hamilton county father until this great stage play carrying his name came about in resuscitate him. And and Cousy look he founded the players association founded that union in the fifties. His last year, by the way, nineteen sixty three Aaron thirty five thousand dollars with the Celtics last year that decimal point moved three places to the right, but Braun and Steph earn thirty five million he travelled Cousy with with his coach read our back in the late fifties to Europe and Asia and Africa. Representing the US State Department selling you know, the game the American game of basketball, they were global ambassador and that those trips and others. Really paid off because last year Keith there were a hundred. I'm forty two different nations. And territories on opening night rosters in the NBA. He was seeing to one of the ironies of his regret with Russell is Cousy was seen by the league's early African American players. Just wanted the good guy. He roomed with the first black player drafted in the NBA in nineteen fifty three years after Jackie Robinson, integrated baseball, Chuck Cooper from Cain, and they had a lifelong friendship. So, you know, and then of course, most of all it's his theatrical. He was the first guy to go behind his back. He was the first guy to throw these no look passes, and he lives in the soul of the game today, every wraparound that Steph does any no look that hardened throws any behind the back dribble. From Westbrook, Cousy is flowing through it. You know with good stories though, and Gary Pomerantz joins me the book is the last past Cousy. Russell the Celtics. What matters in the end right here calling the shots. Keith. They're very obviously bad stories. You had to tell them this one as well. And I read a snippet about Bill Russell talking about when he tried to to buy a house in the suburbs. Put this relationship because, you know, seven years as teenage with the Celtics Cousy muscle on the civil rights time-line happens roughly between the end of the Montgomery bus boycott, and Dr king's March on Washington address Russell faced the Blast Furnace kind of heat from racists in Saint Louis, for instance, you know, where the Saint Louis hawks played of course, now, they're the Atlanta Hawks. But you know, it's the southern most league city in the league Saint Louis and fans there would scream and Russell, but these racist catcalls baboon black guerrilla Russell would drive to his to his home in a Boston suburb reading and and police would I him suspiciously. Vandals would break into his home there right racist graffiti with spray paint on his walls and defecate on his bed. It got that bad. It was some horrid stuff. And it's no wonder that Russell. Would later say more than once that he played for the Celtics. Not boston. Kind of makes sense Gary before I let you go you're lecturing and writing and reporting at Stanford now is that correct? Yes. That's correct. How's that going for you? What what a what else are you doing there that that's kind of exciting? Well, that's that's you know, it's an interesting time in journalism, and there's a great imperative make sure that journalism keeps on keeping on. It's it's as important now is it's ever been. So I enjoy that. I enjoy writing the books and this one was especially meaningful because look Keith I think when we're young we aspired to be the great, man. And when we get a little older as Cousy at ninety Shirley has a little more context and wisdom, you realize life is not eternal and you want to be a good, man. And I think he is that Gary you're the best best of luck with everything going on right now. And hopefully, we'll chat again, very soon. I enjoyed every minute of thanksgiving.

Arguably the best pitcher on the field, although not last night as a pinch hitter. It didn't even throw the ball. Does anybody left to throw the game tonight? Well, the dodgers have named a starting pitcher rich hill after the game Red Sox manager, Alex Cora. Still hadn't decided who he's starting later today in game four he had used up pretty much. Everyone is part of his win now philosophy and that includes Nathan evolved. These Scott six innings in relief. He threw just shy of one hundred pitches. He was brilliant. And of course, max Muncie ruined it for him and the dodgers Walker. Buehler. Buehler. Buehler. Oh my gosh. It was brilliant. This was two games literally was to nine any games. And for the first game Walker. Buehler was the star. He threw seven innings. He was given the ball and asked to basically save the dodgers season. Because if the dodgers had gone down three, oh, no team has ever come back in the World Series from a three oh deficit. Walker Beulah goes out. He throws seven innings holds the mighty Red Sox lineup to hits. He was fantastic. He turned the ball over after the seventh inning to kenley Jansen. They're great reliever. And had he not given up a home run to Boston. It would have been just kind of normal win with Walker. Bueller? Being the star of the night does LA now have anything left in the tank to win. That's a good question to ask. Either of these teams Scott because they both put absolutely everything and more into this game L A one. And so they're they're feeling really good about that, you know, going into game four, but both teams are stocked with professional base. Football players. They'll figure out a way to you know, to win for their teams. And if we predict something now, it will inevitably be wrong. So the one thing we can say we've got a series now. And it's fun Tom Goldman, thanks so much. You're welcome. The duo of Bob Cousy and Bill Russell was one of the greatest they were the Tracy and Hepburn the rocky and Apollo of the basketball court they could anticipate each other's play. They can put themselves into each other's mind and movements as they won six championships for the Boston Celtics in the nineteen fifties and sixties and buttress to dynasty that would win eight in a row. Bob, Cousy was the point guard listed as six foot one doesn't sound basketball tall today. A white man who grew up the son of poor French immigrants in Manhattan Bill. Russell was the center. Six foot ten a black, man. Born in segregated Louisiana.

Russell the Celtics and what matters in the end. Gary problem branch joins us from New York. Thanks so much for being with us. Great pleasure, Scott and from Worcester Massachusetts, Bob, Cousy one of the first members of the Basketball Hall of fame. Thanks so much for being with us. Mr. Cousy happy to be here. Scott, Gary Pomerantz, let me turn to you first what in addition to their sheer excellence once set apart this Celtics team in their times. Well, we can look at the hall of fame and nine of them are members. That's almost two full rosters. And Bob Cousy Bill Russell what was exquisite to watch. Scott was Russell getting the rebound turning and throwing the out past a Cousy sometimes before. You know, Russel's feed it hit the ground, and then Cousy turning taking that photograph in his mind of where players were and he was the gold standard on running the fast break, Bob Cousy. The Celtics were integrated black men and white men playing for the same team at a time. So many other enterprises in America weren't I'm ninety years old. I still got I cannot understand why you hate one person because of the color of their skin. And therefore, you hate all people who have had color hail. You know? I mean, it's so national, but I give the cut village Jesuit education. So when it came time to deal with it in this case on a professional sports level. I was at least my opinions and attitudes. Will put him much set. Gary Pomerantz hutted Bob Cousy and Bill Russell express different sides of this very talented group. Russell spoke out about social injustice. He was very rare among athletes of his time of any time really at that time. Muhammad Ali the boxer in Jim Brown and football and Bill Russell he called out the NBA properly so for its racial quotas. Limiting the opportunities for African American players, and he became fully engaged in the civil rights struggle. We should explain you obviously spent a lot of time speaking with. With Bob Cousy Bill. Russell just doesn't just doesn't talk to people these days. Does he well when he played games in Saint Louis, for instance, he would hear the screams the catcalls from fans black gorilla baboon horrible racist stuff and at home in Boston. He faced the racist heat as well. There was one moment where vandals broke into his home, for instance, spray painted a racist. Graffiti on the wall and defecated on his bed. Just horrid stuff and Bill. Russell would later say more than once that he played for the Celtics. He didn't play for Boston. Bob, Cousy did you know any of that was going on? Oh, yeah. Well, we were part of it. I see what has happened in public. We wouldn't sit there and discuss these issues, Scott. I think it was a personality thing that we could. I mean, I never said to me. I was timid. He was angry. You know, neither one of us ever said NFL game. Let's go and have a few beers together. And when you retired Mr. Cousy a few years before Bill Russell did he was deeply moved. He called you think the best man he'd ever met. If I'm not mistaken. Well, you know, we shared I didn't know that at the time guys don't have meaningful compass. They just don't we mature later in life. That's why the. Hoped? A ladies take over the world body soul. And because we've kind of screwed it up for two thousand years, but. Golly knows what was it fifteen years ago. So. I did on ESPN and of you here at my house, and I don't remember too many details, but at some point in the end of you the question was about those days in about the conflict, and how did we I I teed up responding to it? I thought of to say, you know, I probably should have done more and you'll see Scott at ninety. You'll start making y'all list of of everyone you want to apologize to before before the end. And you wrote Bill Russell a letter a couple of years ago, I gather I did I read a book between the world and be a black father telling his son, how to coexist in this lace is that vitamin was powerful. And I had I had I want her to do a may occult, but a loss. Anyway, it was on my to do list before the big basketball caught the skies. I note saying, you know, looking back on it. I should have done more to share your pain. I'm sorry. I didn't please enjoy this book. It's very powerful. And that was it. Anyway, he didn't release spawned until about three weeks ago the fallen Lang late at night. So I picked up and I had this wife. Calling to see how you doing? And we talked all I did most of the talking. So it was a difficult conversation. But I did say to him less. I sent you a letter three years. A little late the bought whatever he said. We got the letter. Thank you very much. But I didn't read the book. You know, most great athletes as they grow older embellish and burnished the stories they tell about themselves, you know, the fish. They caught keep growing growing soon. It's a whale. But Bob, Cousy is different. He's not doing that. He is admitting his flaws even drawing attention to him. He he's saying this is what I did. And in his final declaration is I did not do enough. Gary Pomerantz from New York and Bob Cousy one of the great shave NBA history from Worcester. Did I get that? Right. You're dead. Well done. Thank you. And the new book is the last past Cousy Russell, the Celtics and what matters in the end. Thanks so much for being with us, gentlemen. Thank you so much as just one story. We couldn't leave out one night. The Celtics were playing in Raleigh. Bob, Cousy was with his friend and teammate. Check Cooper, the first black player in the NBA, the hotel where the Celtics stayed wouldn't allow Mr. Cooper because of the color of his skin. So they hop the late night train back up to Boston Cousy and coop headed to the Union Station and stop for a few beers. And obviously we had to whiz. So we went looking for the men's woman Union Station. I we see the big white signs with the big blackout Paula one way. White the other way I teared up because I couldn't I was ashamed to be white. I I didn't know how to explain this to now. My good friend of two or three years how the hell. I tell them we can't go go. So I saw the problem. I took about it was midnight out on the platform. Not a lot of people. We went to the end of the platform, and we. Scott. It was a moment that we couldn't talk about..

"No, Connor Bob Cousy would only driven with his right hand, and for some reason, nobody could steal the ball and then you'd hear those old time announcers Cousy. He's a magician with them all nobody can solve him. Nobody can take it away from him. He's incredible. He dribbles behind his round. The coups ninety years of age? Yes, paulie just looking at Bob Cousy stats. He came back. He was retired for six years and age forty one and came back and played seven games for Cincinnati that didn't go well. Do you remember that? Yes. You were there then? Yes. I think the Knicks had like an eighteen game winning streak. Maybe the longest winning streak and Cousy came back and he put himself in the game. And then I think he turned the ball over a couple of times in the Knicks Rabaul to continue their winning streak. It didn't go well for vodka Hayes size. Incredible. You can't stop MacOS. Nobody can steal the ball from him. Happy birthday coups. Let me see. I got a couple of things here. At west gate loss Vegas sports book. The Rams are receiving the most total betting tickets to win the Super Bowl out of all. I don't know what the odds are for the Rams if you'll check that mclovin, but that might be why some people are putting money on the Rams and also Los Angeles and the proximity to Las Vegas and people going to Vegas from there and probably putting down some money on them. Patriots are favored to win it all third consecutive season member, the last team to be favored to win at all, not name New England. Seahawks twenty-fifty. I told you to keep an eye on the giants giants open at sixty to one to win the Super Bowl. They're now down to twenty five to one to win the Super Bowl. Now I liked him a lot at sixty two one. Once again, if you're going to put money down, you got chance to make some big money like the eagles were sixty two one to start season last year. I believe the giants currently have better odds than Panthers Cowboys. Niners Seahawks. What anybody take that bet that the giants end up with more wins in the Panthers Cowboys Niners or Seahawks. Yes, mclovin Panthers kind of scare me. Well, they scare me in a good way in a bad way like you don't know what you're gonna get. I have no idea what I'm going to go. But I agree with you said earlier that the giants shape Barron the Cowboys. I totally agree with that. Yeah. I mean, they're gonna Cole Beasley and tape on Austin, your go to guys habit the Niners. Do they scare you a threat to the giants? I mean to have more wins and no, no, no. I you by the way. It's August ninth. Have you thinking about it and I have not. No. No, I'm not. I could see the giants with ten wins. I could see them with more wins than these teams Panthers Cowboys. Niners see, I expect the giants to be really good. I'm not going to be surprised all these apprised if they're not really good this year. Yeah, lemon. I know we talked about it, but the moment I most regretted being on the Dan Patrick show and almost left you sitting on David Letterman saying the giants are going to be the patriots. I'm like, how can I align myself maddening? I think it was like, what are you talking about? Two thousand. Seven. Oh my God. When I got through with the show now it's taped in and I got out to my car and I remember I was driving home and I'm thinking, I think I even I may have sent something to the Dan answer. They were there, but it was like, oh my God. Do you realize what you did? And I didn't get the fallout until that late that night the next day because when Letterman aired. But I said that the giants would beat the patriots in the Super Bowl. And I remember. Dave asking me if I'm drunk, I said, no, I really believe that. I may have lied to him that it wasn't drunk, but I really believe the giants were going to win the Super Bowl ENC. I remember that we were in the attic then, and I remember sitting there thinking like ads..
