Have the 'Bad Boys' Pistons been overlooked in NBA history?

"Had a great relationship that you're going to bring some of the stuff that you when you cover the bad boys the Pistons. Yes, your relationship. Someone will break horn and those guys in that area some new insight because now we're especially with the day of covet we're supposed to live through the past and you know the big dance the last dance with with Michael was such a huge thing that happened. The Pistons were right in the middle or at the end of the beginning or the ending of where Michael started. Yeah. Yeah, and and and for me, you know, I I was around that team at a time when they took the Pinnacle of NBA greatness. And so there are lots of stories that you know, I have stored away. I mean like when I was there when they won the title in 2004 would rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups and all those guys and they were little things that they did that people didn't realize played a role in winning a title things like Larry Brown, for example, the first play of every single game if they went to jail ball was get that damn ball to Ben Wallace and let him go to work because big fella knew he wasn't touching the rock much at all if at all after that, so they made a point of getting him the ball first possession every single time. They got the ball in office and they just cleared out and let him go to work and if he scored great if he didn't we gave you a shot. It's little things like that that helped them build team. Chemistry and bonding and Trust knowing that hey going to get you twenty-five Thirty points, but if you don't do the big fella bone and you going to get you 15 Reba, I don't know any other brothers often times. I can think of that had developed that kind of chemistry and I was on the championship teams. We liked each other but with those pills like those dudes would suck blood brothers. Like, you know, it's like the way they think the way they perform it was like bad boys in the years that bad boys for life like that movie that's just seemed like the way they were

Celtics Training Camp May Kick Off Without Gordon Hayward As He Leaves Boston for Charlotte

"Camp camp for for the the Boston Boston Celtics. Celtics. But many are still talking about the teams off season with the opt out of Gordon Hayward, followed by the sign and trade with the Charlotte Hornets. And although there were many rumors about trades the Celtics could have made President of basketball operations Danny Ainge said today he won't discuss player names, but there were trade discussions. But I'm just saying that, you know, we did have a discussion with Indiana not gonna go into the details. And we knew what the risks were, and we knew what all the options we could do. Signing grades with Indiana with Charlotte, and we thought that any one of those options were good like number One option was getting Gordon to come back and the Red Sox

"I mean Jalen, you know, I think it's fair to like he's a worker like, you know, he's going to keep working and working and working the levels that he's already jumped it like are impressive and to me they almost Suggest like, you know, certainly I'm sure he's going to try to go up another level but it's like how much more can you like realistically ask from a guy like he went from you know, like a a bench player to an All-Star game just purely off, you know are like a close 2 and close to an All-Star at least just by working his tail off. So I mean like sure he might take another leap up. But if he doesn't I think it's worth remembering that like this guy has this guy had gotten himself to to quite a quite an impressive level already. I'm with you on say time though. I mean, I think like, you know, you're talking top five and a few years and I don't think that's ridiculous at all. I also don't think with regard to this a long conversation will say for another time. But with regard to Jayson Tatum, you know for anyone out there. It's like he should ever 30 points a game. Do I think he's capable of that? No question. He is showcased that I mean hell he basically did it from the App Store game on last year and and in through the rest of the regular season into the bubble, but I don't think you're looking for him to do that with all of those pieces around him that we already kind of talked about. I think if he's sitting around 25 a game that I bought That's more than acceptable as long as he's you know, reasonably efficient with his shot. You don't want to you know, take in 25 shots of game to average twenty five points obviously, but does he need to average Thirty points? I don't think so. Let's go to the next one. They'll Shake Shack. I want to I wanted to point out real quick defensively. Both of them could use a little bit of work. And if they if Jalen Jalen becomes a better off all the fender than we're really talking because Jaylin is an excellent. On-ball Defender bumper is off while stuff drives me crazy sometimes but if they can both lock it a little bit better on that end did top five stuff for Tatum. Absolutely. No, I think I think Tatum's really good on that end already like he seemed pretty versatile to really believe I love this from Shamrocks & Shenanigans. Also love the name with Danny stockpile of Assets Now gone. If you're Danny Ainge, do you see as your biggest trade asset in the event a desirable player becomes available by a via trade and I I'll I'll leave that open a little bit in the event that Boston acquires wage. Twenty or Thirty million dollar trade exception obviously in this deal with Charlotte potentially, but with what they currently have. What is the answer to that question time? I mean, it's it's whatever you want in a man..

Danny Ainge's Celtics Conundrum

Danny Ainge's Celtics Conundrum

"The logical question though, and he got into this a lot with Bob and we got his thoughts. But obviously I want yours as well. You know, there are only so many options really that Danny Ainge has because of just the economic setup of this month. Stir, you know, it's very top-heavy salary cap wise young guys, you know, you can all right fine. So you don't bring back like an enes Kanter not a young guy but a cheap guy, you know, that's that's not going to give you all that much flexibility back. So it's really do you want to trade Marcus Smart, which I don't think anybody wants to do or do you want to move off of Gordon Hayward in some way shape or form now? He has the power which is often for that 34 + million dollars next year or he could opt out do what everyone thought was going to happen with Al Horford last year, which is re-signed him, you know more years lower aav average wage will value or you know option three is obviously you trade the guy. I don't think there's a scenario in which he just hops out and doesn't return I don't believe that anyway coming off the injury, maybe if he had had a bought a strong healthy season and great playoff run sure, but that wasn't the reality. So it's it's kind of a b and c with Gordon, but you know Brown who has just resigned isn't going anywhere. Tatum's going to get his contract cambuslang. In anywhere, so it's sort of adjusts, you know, your your salary cap position as a results to Hayward or you kind of bring back everybody and you just look to cherry-pick some depth off that balance like you're talking about right or or is there something I'm missing? Yeah. No, I mean and that's the other part of it is in you mentioned Caden pretty extensively Jaylen Brown has also shown he can be foundational second piece that goes he's turning twenty-four I think in like two weeks to have another player like that who and let's face it. The Celtics are pretty fortunate like the wage and they gave him he would Be worth a little more right now. She was going into like restricted free agency. So in addition to those guys being pieces you hope and assume they're both going to get them like camber is what can build which is, you know, an All-Star starters really good. Obviously your concerns about his knee. Hopefully that there's up but with Tatum and Jaylen there's still some there's still a level there. You think if you're if you're a self extension you hope so maybe that's what it takes to kind of get over the hump and you talk about Hayward. Obviously, I know fans are kind of disenchanted with them. He's had some just brutal block really like it's not like these injuries you suffering because he's like frail or like, you know, like just just brutal brutal luck. But off this year when he was healthy like last year when he was healthy. He was still not himself. It was clear this year when he was healthy looked really good. He was one of the best players and I think it was encouraging birth. You there aren't a lot of Gordon hayward's out there. We talked about like moving off of Gordon Hayward like he's back and playing like he's capable. That's a pretty big asset to have particularly. If you're putting them alongside our guys like Jason jail and who were still on their uptrend?

"I just think in terms of You know, if you don't if you don't sign Kemba Walker, I don't know if Jayson Tatum as is is running to to sign the max to play it to out his career with the Celtics. I don't know if necessary. Jaylen Brown is saying this is where I ought to be for the rest of my career. I think Campbell Help stabilize all that after like a really shity place at the Celtics were left. And so that's why he's my number three. interesting, I see your case there like from Fork in the road standpoint for the team. I do you disagree with it be rough. Yeah, I mean he's I didn't consider him a friend my top five, but I can see the wage but I didn't think about it from the perspective that rich kind of brought in terms of where you know, this other sitting on two different directions there and you know, we'll get it will I think it's more of a you know, obviously fiala turns out here. But it could very well turn into where Rich has them. Yeah. I I have them on my list as my phone number too. And I just think like The max is a lot. Of course Kim was worth the max. I don't think there's any he's not worth the supermax, which is why he's not he's no longer with the Charlotte Hornets, but incredibly solid dude, incredibly solid locker-room guy positive presence, his game offensively is exactly what you want out of a point guard score for his point guard obviously get defensive questions that make them a little bit more vulnerable than you know, another two-way type of player a wing but you know, Rich you put James Posey number one because he helped them win the championship and like there's not a lot of guys that Danny Ainge has signed to put you in a position to compete for a championship and Kemba Walker is one of those guys and I think he's just a really critical player a really critical part of this team and offensively, you know, their offense has been not the greatest when he's not on the court for a reason and you know, we don't need to really mention the defensive on and off here cuz it hurts my argument. But yeah, really, he's an All-Star caliber player and You're not getting the greatest value on the max, but that's just in the reality of the NBA. That's what he's going to get paid and you there's not really a lot of teams around the league. That would be like, I don't want to take a walk or even if it is for the max. Then the new worries me..

"Right, Rich your number your number three thousand three is Rasheed Wallace and again, so it's tough cuz you look at Russia year with the Pistons, right? Yeah before before the Celtics signed him and it was pretty decent like he went played sixty played 66 games. What by the way when insane number of his Celtics where he played 79 games that season maybe he was I thought just conserving his energy every single game which sort of made it less likely to get injured or whatever. It was. But the the C's his last season in Detroit. He averaged 12.7 and 1/2 rebounds a game, you know shot 35 per month. From 3 so that that's why I didn't put him higher but he was a guy and especially the way it came down to a game seven, right if there was ever a game one game. We need you rush to step up and be the guy thought was we were we were getting and he just didn't have it. And I think that was symbolic of the entire signing just a big disappointment. So yeah where she eats my number three Disagree. Yeah, I love forget like I don't care about revisionist history. I love Rasheed Wallace. I love his time on the Celtics. I don't blame him for game seven. I yeah, I disagree with everything you said why cuz he's a legend. I mean he liked to this day whenever something good happens in my life. I do his three point, you know, pull out the thing is and you pull it back into your chest. Like that's my celebration move in my daily life. So I got that from she his legacy lives on with me. And when's the last time to do that and your real? Well like not in like about probably like four or five years. It's been a rough rough go, right? Yeah, but I mean, he's thirty-five years old when he stands at this. I mean, don't know off the expectation, by the way, this isn't saying like the best and worst seasons of Rasheed Wallace his career not blaming what you were saying. Danny agents free is Danny Ainge is free agent signings. No, yeah, I know and I it's it's slim pickings to come up with bad ones for sure. But I mean it wasn't anyone well know probably was a good one, but he gave them what they needed in the playoffs. Like ikey was for the Lakers series of now but he was great against the Cavs and against the magic for me and I agree with you rich like his regular-season awful like one of the worse for you guys. It's crazy like he shot like 20% or three. I think he was allergic to offensive rebounds. It was which was a problem and get right which has problems which is why they like stumble and we're like an 4 or 5 seed going to those playoffs, but then he got right when they needed him to when he hit three as in the playoffs. And as far as game seven goes your you know, he didn't I kind of put that moron Doc Rivers Edge she'd Bridge because you can't he played 35 minutes in that game..

"You know people forget? That team started something crazy. Like twenty seven in two rampaging looking at back to back title. How quickly did you know this is going to be a before? And after a moment for us yeah I did know I knew that Cagey got hurt in. You know but I did not think you would be out of a long period of time Matter of fact we start at twenty seventy two. I thought two thousand nine was every bit as good as two thousand eighteen without better and We were. We were plugging along grade. When Cagey went down I wasn't that worried moment. The doctors gave me some assurance that they thought that you know he'd be backed might be a couple of weeks might be four weeks but that you know he would return that season we could hold down the floor. Scallop greeny and Liam Clo- big baby and like we could we could get by and we did get by for a while but without k. Obviously are are championship hopes. Went down the tubes. What's your what's your best cages story. Just all he's an all time. Nba Character. I ask everyone who's ever crossed paths with Keiji. That comes on this. Podcast is just give me one window into what made this do tick. Or what Beta teammate. And what just made them. What made him a presence where you watched or listened to him and we're like this guy is just is just a different kind of cat is that can't give you the the one comes to my mind up but there there there are so many funny ones but You know I I can't really say them publicly but Maybe maybe I can tell you privately some days. I can't say on your show but cagey was just you know he. He was such character. You know you've probably heard this story. One one where he had me laughing so hard was dot would always try to get. Doc would always initiated rookie. In training camp was saying. Hey Go sub. For Caging in the scrimmage and Keiji would just tear their head off. Get off the core rookie. Don't ever come in sub for me and you know so it was just a rookie. Orientation thing that they had to go through is like trying to sub They only have to do once once and they would never try to. But DOC was cagey was at the stage where dot felt like. We need to manage his practice minutes so he would try to convince cagey constantly. Come sit down and rest and Keiji just would not if we're practices going on especially for screaming gene implying in so dot one time force cagey APP Cagey get off. The core stood as snapped play. Get out so cagey went onto the court and started running wind sprints but I was sitting up in my office looking down at the whole suit scenario. I was just dying laughing. I mean the guy made me laugh all the time to you. Know there's but it was. Genuine with him wasn't bake. It was like that's who was he wanted to practice. He felt like he needed to be the guy in practice Let's talk a little bit about twenty twenty because you are the general manager of team that has playoff hopes and hopes to go deep into the playoffs. The answer to all of these questions is I don't know so I'm not GonNa Bother asking you like. Are we going to return to play this in that I will ask you this? Have you had any players? Don't name them. But if you had any players express concern to you or Brad you've heard of of. I'm a little scared. I'm a little scared about what playing with look like I'm I'm a little scared of like. Is it a good idea for us to play or all your guys like? Tell me when we can open the facility. I'm ready to play games. I haven't haven't had anybody share concerned just because we're not close to time so our next phase Massachusetts has been one of the slowest in opening things up and so our next phases will open up our facility. We're hoping to do it next week. And it's one zero one on one. Where one coach. One player coaches with masks and gloves players in the gym. Disinfected Jim so I think I don't think anybody's afraid of that right now. I'm talking works if I said we're two or three weeks away from playing. I'm sure there would be some players that would have some trepidation. But I think everybody's just really anxious to play right now. That's what I think would you if we do the. Nba does this bubble thing and Disneyworld or whatever. Would you go sure okay? I don't think I WANNA go. But we'll see what the world looks like. Yeah I don't know if I WANNA go either. I don't know where I'm going to sit. I don't know if I'm going to be in the GM watching it on TV. I I don't know I'm not. I'm not really afraid but I don't think that that's in our best interest at this moment. I'm hoping that in the next two months we have things that make it easier and more comfortable but I'm confident that we will. I hope we will. Do you want to play the season? Have you already mentally moved on to the off season? It's it's we're all in a weird like we're all in a weird head space right now like do you still think of the twenty twenty. Celtics like yeah. I WanNa see what this can do what this team can do. Or you dislike. It's cleaner if we go on you WANNA play as the GM. I assume you do. Yeah absolutely I mean these are the guys play for. It's almost like we just played sixty games in debt mean anything. There's there's so I think that I would like to finish the season and I think most of the players if not all the players would like to finish the season and You know move on the next year when I think from a management standpoint yes we got like manage the draft free agency. That means person season back is going to make those windows much much smaller at different times in much more complicated. But we're trying to do all we can right now. I mean I got a lot of time on my hands and so we're trying to be as prepared possibly. Can How many salary cap in luxury tax projections? Do you have right now. Do you have zero. Because you're just like I give up or do you have a hundred. I told Z. I don't even WanNa see those like it doesn't it does me no good right now. Like that's not. That's not part of the equation talking players evaluation. We'll talk about that because nobody knows the answer to that. I mean those things are changing month by month. Also so we'll see if we even come back to play those. Those numbers could be looked better. And I'm just hoping that we can go out and play. I mean listen I. It's fun watching last aunts. It's fun watching You know some old Celtics Games but I'm way over that now for the real south and even some pro golf to get back in pro baseball. I'm I'm really interested for college football. Nfl so I hope we can find some solutions to the crisis that we're facing one last dance question. I forgot to ask you They a big deal out of the Pistons walking off the court when the Bulls finally beat them nineteen ninety I'm sorry nineteen ninety-one and Isaiah says well you know bill and I said to ourselves Let's pass the Torch to Chicago the way Boston passive us in one thousand nine hundred eight and said you know if you watch the film Larry. Bird walks off the floor or some of the Celtics welcome floor and I went back and watched it in is as right so many guys walk the floor while place while Adrian. Dantley is at the foul line I said on my podcast ethic to circumstances are a little bit different because you guys are in Detroit. The home crowd is already celebrating. There's already been Some fans and photographers storming the floor to the point that the PA addressed public announcer says. Please the GAME'S NOT OVER PEOPLE. Sit in your seats. But he drew equivalent. So I want to ask you. Did you guys talk about it? Walking off do you re- even remember walking off. Do you feel that was a fair comparison firm to make? I don't think it's a fair comparison because there was no plan We had never done that before any team. Yeah we had a good rivalry with Detroit but I mean Detroit had earned our respect. We were more than fortunate to beat. Detroit negative seven and then you know for them to win an eighty eight was probably they were justify the team and I don't remember having any hatred toward them. Working say wish them. Good well I think it had simply to do such a long walk. Back to the tunnel in Detroit and we left before the buzzer sounded. Just for our own safety and the one guy that was still on the court was Kevin and Kevin did stop and talk to is. And you know there wasn't a coordinated effort in any way shape or form of the safety of the players. Unlike Detroit who like game plans to snub the the Bulls as they walked by him? For whatever reason and you know I don't but I don't think it was even close to being the same now the hostility between you guys in Land Beer particularly Larry Lambert Beer. That was real. So if you see lamb beer in like life right now would you talk to him or do you guys still is L- Islam Beers still persona non grata for all day eighty celtics. I mean listen. He was tough to play again guard. But I get a kick out of bill and I'm not I would would talk to bill. I have I have run into bill over the years and a half talk with him so yeah I don't I don't really hold any grudges against guys that we played against. I respected the Pistons. Dan and I and I respect him even more now bill in beer three time. Nba Are the average fan. Just thinks he's bullied that hit people. He's a three time all started. Bad boys were awesome. They had one team that made the finals. I had our stats guys like this up. Seven players average double digits. You know how rare that is. I think one of three teams that have ever made the finals with seven guys averaging double digits. They were deep nasty team. That is I think is actually. Because they're the the gap team between Magic Bird and Michael that they've they've kind of become historically underrated in their run was a little you know. They came very close to repeating It almost one the eight. That was a damn good team. Forget the violence. Forget the bullying. Forget all the you know whatever like that was just a straight up good deep basketball team. No question you don't and so we know. We grew up in an era as you said there wasn't a lot of spacing and But there were some dominant bigs in that era and you know double teaming was a big deal started out where you double team the post and you'd rotate. Two guys then gave the double team in the post in rotate three plays out and the Detroit made a five man rotation when they had sally and Rodman in at the foreign the five I mean they just rotated all and that was the first time we saw five guys that could play all five positions defensively on the court and It changed the game defensively. And you gotta give them a lot of credit. I mean Rodman and Sally were enormous off the bench and gave them amazing. Burst agility defensively in adding that to the Great Dumars and Benny Johnson. And Isaiah Thomas. And they're amazing at Adrian. Dantley and Mark Maguire. They had they did have a very very big and James Edwards. They had law scoring on that team as well last question. I have to ask you and I will let you go. When did you know? And why did you know.

"I thought I was going to go up for a dunk. Maybe I can get get it from behind or file in hard But I mean he got rid of apple also quick and I was just stuck in the middle of it and then I left John. Paxton open play against Pakistan will career in one thing I know about packs is I did not think that shot was gonNA miss and credit. You knocked a big shot down in. That was a that was a very painful loss. It's an interesting played bringing up the thanks. Rian that memory. Look this is what happens when he orden's contemporaries. I they just have to talk about what it was like the loose the Michael Jordan. There's no other subject matter. I mean we could talk about Kobe. Nineteen if you wanted much. It's much less fun But you're right so Michael's not really involved in that play at all. He passes it off to Scotty. And Charles because Scottie plays the four or lot down the stretch of the game so Charles's guarding and Charles tries for the steel doesn't get it in and his lunging toward half court and Scotty immediately. Spins and be lines for the RIM drops it off to horace in Dunker spot. And at that point you have no choice. Because Horace Dunk the ball. So you run it horace and I've always said it's the most underrated part of the play. Horace this crazy spinning back away from the WHO pass on the Button. Paxson for the winning shot. And like you don't think of horace grant is a passer you think of a rugged rebounder interior score a little bit mid range jumper great defender. That is a really really good pass. And it's kind of like that. It's everyone remembers the packs shot. But I'll bet you if you pulled like a hundred. Nba Fans. They would think that Michael drew a double team and passed it to Paxon. It's Scottie two-horse an crazy backward. Pass two pack so that you're right you like you. Just don't think that's the way that plays gonNA unfold. No I mean you know like I said I knew coming out. We didn't want to give up three but your instincts is takeover in those moments of the game. But I did. I mean it was a great pass. No question about it in that wasn't in as nature was not it? I hadn't seen him make asses like that most of his career but he sure did at that time so in the documentary when they bring up that Jordan had heard that jerry krause his GM nemesis loved. Dan Marley and was obsessed with Dan. Marley and that was like part of Michael's motivation for trying to win that finals and go at the end Marley. Did you just sort of like? Did you know that or did you text and more? I don't know if you have Dan Marley's number did you did all the old sons sort of start talking like no wonder. This guy had degraded finals of all. Time individually Michael's ninety-three finals. I think the whole story about Michael's motivation is a little bit overrated in the documentary. Be but other than the fact that if it wasn't Dan morally it was something else. If it wasn't Charles Barkley it was Dan. Marley was nanotubes. Kevin Johnson Johnson. Danny it was. You know Oliver Miller. I mean it Paul. Westfall could like pass by him at dinner. I mean all of that stuff is just that's Micalizzi. It's just it doesn't have anything to do with Dan Marley. But I mean Michael probably he just found a way to invent a competitive edge to keep him at that competitive. Edge motivated win. I'll tell you Barkley rewatching ninety-three Barclay. There was just nothing anybody could do with that guy like horace grant is is all defensive level player. He's very good and it's like automatic crisis double team. When Charles gets the ball in the post against horse like to the point that they bring Scott Williams and in crunch time for a little expert like Charles was just on another level that sees it. I don't know if I when Charles was in shape and like really playing. That dude was an absolute monster and that season the Bulls. Couldn't there was nothing you could do with him in the post it was. It was really astonishing. How powerful and athletic he was. I think Charles is one of the most underrated players in the history of our game. I mean playing with Charles in Phoenix. I mean first of all the guy made me laugh. Jin Nuclear Lap. Every single day. It was such a joy to play with him and he was far from perfect but he was so gifted and You know ninety three was that special year wins. Mvp personally I think it had something to do with playing in the Dream Team. Ninety two realizing like I am as good as everyone of these players and he was also in in the best shape. I think that a career at that moment because he played during summer and spent so much time with the top players in the world and so But he was a joy to play with. He was great. I mean his physical tools. Were good as any power for this ever played and just to put a bow on the ninety three finals. I mean I really had forgotten the Frank Johnson jumper. Then you guys get the ball back your still up to ninety eight ninety. Six and Frank Johnson doesn't want to shoot the same. Almost the same shot materializes for him twice on the next possession. He doesn't take kicks to Marley on the Baseline. Marley's wide open badly. Mrs Along to like I just forgotten. I knew about the Paxton shot. Obviously so I knew you guys closed affords me in game seven but I really forgot how close that was to okay. It's game seven in Phoenix. Like anything like it was it was really you guys should have won the game. Frankly I mean you should have won the game now and those open shots came as a result of them taking the ball. Charles Hands is that right. That's yeah get Charles was automatic. Double Team just Charles had to kick it out and we had to make side they were. They were forcing us to just make an open shot. Could make and it's really. I mean you watch these old games. No one is facing to the three point arc like not even guys you think of as shooters like Kevin Johnson is spacing nineteen feet away for these kiguel passes from Charles. It's like the. Why is the line even there? No one is. There's like one guy on the floor that's even bothering with it. It's really crazy. How bad the spacing was yeah. It was different. It was a different time in percentages. Shot was more important than than the factor of the three of the third point. And so I just think that it took a while. Aj wasn't until like I coach k. j. actually that he started shooting freeze and he started making Mellon became a very good three point shooter in the NBA. And then just like just like so. Many guys growing up without the three point line just took time for us to evolve into recognize the importance of that shot by the way at some at some point in the ninety two finals. You make a three and Marv Albert says Danny Aines has moved in to second all time in. Nba Playoff made threes. I'll give you three guesses. Who Do you think was ahead of you in Nineteen ninety-two for all time? Playoff made threes. I don't was a bird. Nope this is according to Marv. Albert have not fact check marv Albert exact to the day rankings of all time is soon. He's right wow I'll give you a headed. Somebody who faced in multiple finals rhymes GonNa say Michael Cooper. That's who it was. Michael Cooper was number one. All Time and playoff made through it makes sense. 'cause the three only came in seventy nine eighty but like Michael Cooper in ninety two is still like number one all time anyway. Speaking of underrated players. I grew Charles's underrated. We just did this. Top seventy four all time players. Espn DOT COM K. G. came twentieth. Now I have the top. How many seventy four seventy four I I. I think you know this. Is this the seventy four season? I don't know why we did. Seventy Four Cagey came twentieth. Now my gut reaction to that was. That's too low. I haven't researched enough to know who I would leave him over. Dirk is right in front of him. Julius Irving is nearby Moses Malone nearby but I do think KGB is closer to like twelfth than he is to twenty fifth. And I fear that he is going to go down as one of the most underrated players of all time because of how he sort of language did Minnesota Prime Cagey was. I mean twenty five ten and five twenty three ten and five defending legitimately defending one to five. You might be cagey has cases the greatest defensive player of all time. I don't know where you would rank him but I think I think the what if of like if you flipped where they got drafted between Dunkin and Garnet. I would love to see how their careers it played out. I mean Tim has. Tim Is better than Garnett. Ranks higher than Garnett but if Garner had gotten drafted to the Spurs. I would love with with their front office in how they drafted afterwards. I just think he might be the all-time victim of NBA circumstance. I mean there was a time when him and Marbury were together. It looked like those guys. GonNa be you. Know a franchise duo for years and years to come when they were young in Minnesota so it fell apart. There when Steph ended up leaving but You Know Cagey was. I mean such a joy to be around I mean. Forget about the numbers at the numbers When he was in Boston he certainly wasn't at his peak and yet he keeps changed our culture singlehandedly. I mean He. He changed the culture because he gave so much confidence. Everybody else so unselfish. It was all about winning And his versatility his ability to guard one through five his ability to score if you needed him to score and his unwillingness or his willingness. I should say to just share the ball all in ray that Rondo have the bonds hands a lot. I mean Cagey was a consummate team player. And I think he's up there when it comes to top defensive players of all time. I think I would have to put your too young to remember watching bill. Russell play but I would say Bill Russell was the best player of all time in Cagey was is in the running for number two. Were you at game. I believe it was in Utah in two thousand nine when he hurt his knee hurt his shin. I don't remember exactly what you're some tendon. But something. He went up for an hour. You and your season kind of went away with his landing. Were you at Digamma did you. And how quickly.

Anthony Davis' Father Rips Celtics for 'No Loyalty' with Isaiah Thomas

"So Charles Barkley last night on TNT with some pretty strong words about Anthony Davis his trade demand from Nola. It was done privately at first last weekend. Then Davis is agent. Rich Paul who we not. So coincidentally shares with LeBron James went public with an on Monday. And since then we've had four days of back and forth. I agree with Chuck sentiment. Right there. I certainly do so awful for I don't know the twenty five teams in the NBA who don't reside in these power cities. It's awful for them. But for the fans, it's great these rumors are awesome. I mean, just compare and contrast the NBA with baseball. I mean this off season is like, you know, here we are February first spring training two weeks away and to the most to the best free free agents. Excuse me, possibly ever tit the market in their primes Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are still unsigned because we got going on baseball the NBA. It's trade deadline and all this stuff is going around. And just as we were in break. Got the story up here for Mona's Shelburne in ESPN NBA insider posted at seven twenty four. So just about fifteen minutes ago. The father of pelican star Anthony Davis said he does not want his son to play for the Celtics if they would require him via trade this summer. I would never want my son to play for Boston After what they did to. Isaiah thomas. Anthony Davis senior told ESPN on Friday. No loyalty, the guy gives us, heart and soul. And the traded him. David senior went on to clarify, these only speaking for itself, he's not speaking for his son. This is just my opinion. Non anthony's. He said I've just seen things over the years with Boston. There is no loyalty. So that's Anthony Davis father saying that the way Danny Ainge shipped. Isaiah Thomas added town for kyri two summers ago after that playoff run playing through the hip injury playing after the death of his sister missing teeth still finding its way onto the court said the terrific postseason. He had where the Celtics do they turn around trade Thomas for Kyrie Irving any Davis. His father's says, no royalty that set. I don't want my son go into Boston. I say are you serious? You kidding me? The Celtics are the only team in the NBA who pull this kind of stuff really the salt. Are the only team in the NBA who have traded a player who didn't want to go. Really Anthony Davis senior Nolte, obviously, no loyalty, it's a business. It's a business and guess what? The Celtics made the right call. They made the right call. What's Isaiah Thomas doing right now playing for the veteran's minimum carry Irving asthma Curiel as he is as enigmatic as he is going to start in the all star game. Having a great season. He was great last year until he got hurt. Celtics aren't trading him at the deadline. I wouldn't do that. So he woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Okay. Get them tomorrow. You keep carrier having here you win that trade. You do that trade ten times out of ten everyday twice on Sunday. No wilty believe me, if the Celtics acquire Anthony Davis this summer, and if they do resign him, they will not trade Anthony Davis. Believe me the difference between Anthony Davis and Thomas, quite large. You have something to say, drew. See return it on. I just think it's funny that loyalty. I'm not criticizing Davis for wanting to leave New Orleans, but loyalty is you know, kind of a two way. That's a great point. That's a great point. So your son. Is signed with the pelicans for one more year through twenty twenty the pelicans can give him way more money than any other team. That's a great point, and you publicly asked for trade this week less than two weeks before the deadline trying to undermine all their negotiation leverage. And then putting it out there that you only want to re sign with the Lakers. So you're not just publicly declaring trade, which you were fined fifty thousand dollars for doing by the way because that's against league policy. So you're not just publicly declaring a trade west in two weeks before the deadline undercutting your team's leverage. You are then in order to further undercut your team saying, oh, by the way, I only want to re sign with the Lakers everywhere else is just renting me. Wait what? Yeah. Great point loyalty. How what your son is doing? And again, no problem with that power to the players. Anthony Davis has the right to do that. I mean, this is what star players have done since the decision special with LeBron James a decade ago. So I get all that. I have no issue there. But yeah, the to a street, I mean, if players can demand trades left, and right, then guess what teams that have these players under contract have a right to trade them as well. Have a right to trade them as well. That's week. That's week by Anthony

"And if when i think about my own reactions to my own experience in that regard i became irrationally angry at the world and that that anger would take objects that didn't deserve it sometimes right like you get upset at people because it needs to express itself somehow and and in this case it's a pretty obvious target for isaiah because he lost his sister tragically comes back to the team plays his heart out for that team as the as he did all year under those circumstances feels he has a real relationship with age and then and then ages not only the decision maker but all the also the arbiter of bad news is delivering the bad news and so you could understand why that anger takes its spot on danny ainge its target becomes danny ainge even though it is irrational in in a bigger sense that i think that i think that eventually isaiah thomas we'll see that because he is a thoughtful guy well i would say this your points of valid isaiah thomas is points are valid if danny age looked him in his face and say you're not going anywhere i'm not traded you we're going to re saw you your everything to this franchise but i watch jackie mcmullan on sports than a yesterday we carry champion they were talking about how all year long people were speculating it boston as to whether or not isaiah thomas we'll be back next year jackie mcmullan a great jacket mcmullan said she didn't think he would be that ultimately she thought he would be traded these are the kinds of things that he was aware of and if he were aware of that and less danny age look diminished space and lie to him he does not have a case against daily age here because there's nothing business wise that's wrong about the decision to any age may to move him and there's nothing wrong with and that might be the thing stephen a he learned the valuable lesson that it is a working relationship even though it felt like a family type thing at the end of the day it is always a working relationship in business.

"You know we we've moved down the draft we we didn't hit on the very top of the draft marquel faults and philadelphia's deal with boston from your perspective a you have felt strongly really i think through the whole year the marco faults was normal and pick in the draft what's been your assessment of of danny ainge trading out and walking away from the chance to draft folts well first of all i respect danny ainge is i for town i'm in his track record speaks for itself but from my standpoint trading down from one two three in this draft and ruin any draft is a very difficult proposition because the number one pick historically yields you an allstar sixty nine percent of the time and once you drop down to three you're looking at thirty to forty percent and so that's a really roy big drop off now every draft is different obviously and like guinean said in his press conference he felt like the guy he would it take i one is the same guy who can get it three and so with that in mind we just have to raciale missing plays out obviously he's he's not as big of a fan of marquel full it's as some other people are and i mean us view the draft fragiskos the co plays out filled up is gonna be it's gonna be interesting the group that they've put together now with m b in sorrow a church and obviously now of false coming in the roster they have taking shape is is uh and obviously ben simmons who didn't play last year can you imagine folds playing in abrupt brown had talked at length we talked about this about you know bred his wanted simmons to play point guard nissam as a point guard amid six ten six eleven you imagine he enfolds been able to play a lot together.

"So the issue track that players he moves along and you compile your free agent books you then know where the guy started versus wary that and see why he got better and make smart freeagent decisions and smart draft decisions that will surprise the age really had to come out and say that i would hope he would be considering you're looking at what one hundred or one hundred fifty players they'd potentially could be a part of the draft process he had to be able to have your evaluation to start evaluating them as now the new russia players come into the lake he also said the lawns of walls not working out for boston and he's okay with it called amount of fended by any of it amount affected by any of it we followed him in the summer in the past there were prepared on who he is and it wouldn't affect us in any way i certainly don't hold it against him or take take it personal here's what i haven't heard danny ainge address lavarra ball now on so the old man and it's very interesting to me the danny angels not said anything to put himself in a position to get into some sort of war of words or to say something the lavarra ball would here and think that he needs to fire off a comeback it is worth it and look i will launch a ball here anyway so an end not working out a player is not a big deal we see that happening sports all the time said he wants to get to know marquel faults better hold said he wants to be the number one pick he says he feels like he would fit well in boston and this is arguably the most important part of the process for danny ainge it's not as important even though i did just expound upon it it's not as important on the priority list for him to get to intimately no a kid who might get taken in the second round but what i expect from danny ainge is that in some way shape or form he finds a way to learn about marquel folds to learn about lawns oh ball and the ball family to dig into the history with the the the josh jackson kid from kansas because he said some anger issues danny ainge does it need you intimately.
