"Have slept on this a couple of nights. I have tried to wrap my mind around it my arms around it and I just can't the more I think about it the worse it gets. This is so unfair to CD lamb and so wrong headed by Jerry Jones. So let's reiterate quickly see the wore number two at Oklahoma and I'm sure you would probably want to wear number two in Dallas except the NFL dictates wide receivers where Tan to nineteen or eighty to eighty nine. So he says he chooses even tweets. I'm choosing number ten in honor of De'andre Hopkins because remember. Cd grew up in a Houston. Suburb called Richmond through the early years of the Andre as a Houston Texas and it was his idol his role model. The player he pattern himself after. And who actually his game fits. The best is De'andre Hopkins. Okay but here we have Jerry being Jerry Jerry being a little Kooky a little off kilter and a whole lot of runaway train. Because we have Jerry who played with a teammate named Jerry lamb who was a receiver who wore number eighty eight. So let's see we have Jerry. Jones plus CD lamb equals jerry lamb because jerry lamb became a close confidante and lifelong friend of Jerry Jones. He passed did Jerry. Lamb last December so on draft night. Jerry thinks it's a sign from above that all of a sudden. Cd Lamb falls from number six on their draft board all the way into their laps at seventeen he sat back on draft night he told Todd Archer. Espn and clear after the first pick. He's thinking Oh my God. This is fate this is destiny. I'm going to have CD lamb where Jerry lambs number to pay tribute to my friend Confidante and teammate at Arkansas and obviously CD lamb has no idea who jerry lamb is because nobody does. That was a great team. One thousand nine hundred eighty four razorbacks won the national championship when eleven. Oh beat Nebraska in the cotton bowl. Okay we get that but Jerry is not thinking. Clearly that while eighty-eight was jerry lambs number. It's also the most hallowed number in cowboy history it's Drew Pearson Michael Irvin Dez Bryant and now the messages son. You're on a hall of fame trajectory. We're giving you eighty-eight and welcome to the Hall of fame in twenty years or whenever it's going to be it's wrong because it's not what this young man who just turned twenty one years of age wanted. Why would you heap that on him? That pressure that expectation do I believe he can live up to? I told you he can stand up and live up to it. He's the best receiver in the draft. But why tempt fate? Why not let him earn his way into Cowboy Lore by actually performing on the field? He hasn't taken one snap in the NFL. And your bequeathing him eighty-eight just because you're thinking it's Jerry lamb number when no it's worn by one hall of Famer Michael Irvin and another who should have been in the hall of Fame Years Ago in Drew Pearson does have a hall of fame stretch for four years before he hit the wall but again we're talking about historical greatness. That's been heaped upon the head of this kid when he does not want it. So Jerry you you did something. No owners ever done your great first round. Pick your your bonanza of a first round. Pick your hit the lottery pick. You're saying I'm going to put eighty-eight on you whether you like it or not because I don't think CD liked it and you didn't let him become boo. He wanted to be De'andre Osman's Jerry. Once again out of line skip. I agree one thousand percent with what you said Jerry. You want to honor your your former teammate. Your best friend. That wasn't his wish. His wish was to wear number ten. So he can auto. Dr Dre Hawkins Guy. He felt his game the guy he idolized skill even though he might have explicitly say. It'd be implicit. Oh I want to. I would one of you be amenable to wear an eighty eight scale if you want do like Mr Kreil Mr Graefe had. Mk His wife. Who Path had the symbol? I think it was stretched on their Jersey. I think you can petition the League to do that. Skip do that. One of the crab say you know what my wife Byron? Uh favorite number with eighty three eighty three so receiver. They draft Ann. Mckee Mikhael Harry. That was my respect number where that number because I wanted to give what he did Beth. What he did he took him him to. Arna someone and bestowed upon this may even though that wasn't his skill and I got understand that's a very close friend of yours and you should be able to offer them how you want to but you shouldn't force me or you shouldn't force that on someone else says with. That was his number. And I'm giving you that number. It's wrong in.

"Krill. Trying to take a shot at it. Don't worry about it. We got this. We zoomed this season. We go win the title. A Michael Jordan did not win the title. Location Bill Russell gotTa Levin and there's The the Jones Voice John Havlicek has more. Tom Heinsohn has more. So stop. This about Michael Jordan's one more title and another thing you say well. Lebron left the D. Wait Hi Dr Michael Jordan. Gave his blessing when they traded his best friend. Charles Oakley and you didn't say a word. He's there Charleston out with great Preez. We did together but but we were championship caliber team and we needed cartwright so that all of a sudden. I'LL MISS YOU WITH THIS JERRY. Krause had total autonomy over those Chicago Bulls as you're seeing in this documentary Jerry Krause had final say ultimately and did not care what Michael Jordan had to say. Michael had no input occasionally. Michael made suggestions. Some of the were not great suggestions. Because we've seen Michael is not a great team builder. In fact he might be the worst team builder in NBA History. But he was by far the greatest player. Ever in fact. We're going to do another topic here in just a few minutes on the show. His agent made the point that he would have average fifty points a game in this day and age. Mary was little to no defense. That gets played. So there's another one we're going to talk about but it's about David Blatt talking intangibles. What what people can't come to grips with this? Lebron almost on a daily basis is doing or saying something that that helps undermine his team. We're top heavy as bleep. It's this it's that it's passive aggressive criticism of his management or his teammates on social media. Never did Michael Jordan ever done any of that. Michael.

"Coach. Ever not even close not in the NBA because he lasted his season in. Just a few games with Lebron. That was Lebron's fault but outside of this country around the world were basketball's global. Just check it out. David Blatt has won everything you could ever win. He's won multiple Euro League titles. He's won multiple Euro League coach of the years he. He's won the Italy championship Israel Championship the Fiba Championship Multiple Times. He is an all time great. He is the greatest coach outside the confines of the NBA now. Multiple champion Jordan won multiple championships with one being the most. So what does that tell you about? Lebron David Bladder saying wait a second. He had to take his talents to south beach and then he had to wait a second. He had to leave his best friend. Dwayne Wade High and dry on South beach and take his talents back to Cleveland to join forces with Kyrie and Kevin Love. David Blatt happened to be the first year coach of that team and win. That ultimately didn't work out in. Cairo took his talents to Boston. Then Lebron had to go Michael B Jordan and go to Hollywood and then he struck out in Hollywood and miss the playoffs and his team went twenty eight and twenty seven in the Games that he started for his first year. Lakers and he had to power play the move of the year to get Anthony Davis to come from New Orleans to give him the help that he needs as a co star in Los Angeles by called never had to do one of those things any of those things. Now we get to the odds versus the US that David Blatt points out and David Blatt sought up close and personal firsthand. What did what have we seen? Let me go back to Kyri that. I just mentioned. What did I tell you the day? Kyrie left Lebron and went to Boston. I told you that a source very close to Kyri Toby. The number one reason Kyri left was that Lebron had become more about stats. Ben Winning more about building a resume by stat stuffing than a legacy of winning championships because he realized it was game over against Michael Jordan. Six in the files were six. Mvp's so it's all about stat building and reputation building. And that's why Lebron James even as we speak has taken the most shots in the fourth quarter of NBA Games this now abbreviated season. Because he stat stuff's in blowout losses in which he stays in the game to pad his stats against bad teams. It's all he's got it or accolades. He needs to lead the League in assists finally in his seventeenth year. Which is doing as we speak. What is ten point. Six Way to go Lebron finally still calling the Vassar and basketball. But but hey Michael Jordan. People forget that there is getting open. Nail Michael Jordan could have led the League in assess chosen why this will wait a second about eighty eight eighty nine. He came close. He had eight assists a game. Lebron got ten point. Six right now wait. Michael Jordan went a whole year while winning the scoring title and averaging eight assists a game and he averaged six assists a game for his career. Lebron at seven point four. It's not that different if he had asked him. Championships would have led the league in assists every year. That's how did he.

"Women's lingerie on their bench. Basically, call them pussies. Pretty much. No. But close enough, basically, David Blatt was the coach of the other team that forfeited David Blatt of coach coaching. Lebron James wants to spend time fame. Also, a Princeton assistant coach when David Duchovny played at Princeton, a little background, David Blandon, but David black coach team. They they protested the games officiating in the first half. I you not as what happened. They protested the games officiating by no showing the second half. And therefore the game. So that is probably the worst protests of all time because if you say in the first half, okay, here, we go. I don't like the way that this is being called. So let's let's change them. Thanks for this. You know? And then you just don't show up. Well, you law like what can you do now? So they they reminds me of so people try to say some things about Rick Pitino that, you know, he didn't really win because before fit, but I I don't think I don't like the protests was a good idea. Maybe David not agree. Maybe not a good. Maybe we did. Maybe they were. Right. Lebron was right. I don't know. David blatt. You're good guy. The week. He's dumb guy of the week. No, I swear I swear the follow up to that story was at the owner that remember we talked about the owner Patino team how he's like crazy. And each said I'll he went into the rest locker room and threatened to kill him in like rape their families. And I'm not even. Yeah. Sounds like joking. If you're just tuning into the story, but that's a pretty sure that's what happened. I think he to protest like the protests. He took like we got like women's lingerie and put it on their bench. And and on the team that quit David Blige team. And that was some sort of gesture. Why would Patino wanna leave that that sounds like a match made in heaven as well? But we need to maneuver LV. We really do. We just just thinking about the moment that we've have Rick Pitino since he went over there. He said Nicolay this was the best passer of all time. Right. He. Did say that said he was the greatest passer he'd ever seen and then and then had other players on the team agree with him that that was the case, you know, he had other people say tell them about colitis tell them, and then he had then he had comparing all the coaches, the college coaches to former coaches, we had that great moment. And then he has the launch array put on the bench has David Blatt throwing a second half. I mean, if he can get all this drama storylines going on in Greece. Imagine what he will do in Las Vegas. And that is why this is perfect. We couldn't ask for anything. Perfect. Thank goodness for coach Rick Pitino. Speaking of speaking of UNLV future, UNLV coaches, let's talk about a past, you know, V coach just real quickly. Because this is the other story. I wanna make sure I get to before we dive in is crispier former UNLV coach for a week and a half or whatever it was in two thousand sixteen..

Go commercials about those kids and told him that he was only Cleveland a lot those kids to the same way. I would allied to Boston about that situation. And that given time period does he want to go back there when you even want to play LeBron because I find it hard to believe that that would be a situation oath. Ultimately, make either of them happy.

Because of this guy. This guy wants to be with me. And I'm I mean, we'll see what the Celtics can do what they really think is that big a deal in this. But I'm just saying this meat.

David Blatt was fired at the hand the shadowy hand allegedly LeBron James after he made the NBA finals while he was sitting atop the Eastern Conference, right. This comes down to whether Luke Walton is LeBron's guy. And that could mean, maybe there's a there's a Thai Lou in the offing someone to take them to the finals and win a championship. Maybe that's the logic here, or maybe he's just not adding value in the way that LeBron was hoping that you like talking about LeBron shadowy hand and all of this stuff.

"The head coach in the NBA and blades, not well liked. And he's an arrogant man, and he is not very good with people those things don't usually help you usually, but he's very well respected head coach Gregg Popovich had sung his praises black had come from abroad. Internationally, the most successful international coach of all time. And I flew to Cleveland to do a sit down interview for Fox Sports one where I worked on television with black and I found him funny. And I found him smart, and I found him insecure, and I found him arrogant, and I found him learned, and I found him insufferable all of which is to say a big time success story, if he succeeds in a big time failure, if he doesn't the kind of guy that if he made it was going to tell you how great he was. And if he didn't he would have plenty of people lining up and tell you how great he was not entirely was one of those people now, David Blatt. I'm not asking for sympathy. Here. He doesn't deserve it manager superstar manage lebrons. I'm simply saying what I said back then when I reported this and all the way through lose elevations. If you're going to become Caesar by shoving a knife in your guys back, you better expect to have a lot of sympathy when they come for you, and I don't have much which is why point that with some satisfaction. Tyler Lou had a winning percentage of sixty point seven percent six. Oh, seven it's pretty good. It's pretty good. Lebron james. David blended, a winning percentage of six seventy five markedly higher blouse was the better coach he was always a better coach, he just didn't kiss. The bronze you know, what? And that's part of the job. And that's part of the deal. It's part of a Luke Walton is going to struggle with. Here's the reality. I do not pretend to be an Xs and os expert on that one of those hosts, and I know pretty well. But if I knew it as well as some of my colleagues pretend that they would be I'd be Jim I could win sixty percent of my games. If I was LeBron James head coach because I would run this play that I came up with an it took me a lot of time as very sophisticated called the LeBron its where I take a basketball, and I wrote onto the floor, and I'm like, you're the man LeBron and the parking lots your go, you house a funny joke kill gay cool. Great. I would want to sixty percent of my game. That would have got an NBA championship zeros zero for Tyler LeBron's tweet today. And I don't I don't have it in front of me. It's just a bunch of a motive emojis championship troby. Your guy will always have whatever you're in. The x y you know, it's like, it's like you're in a relationship your girlfriend breaks up with you. It's public and the ex wife who's married I'm better looking and rich like I'll always we always have the nineties. I don't need to hear this right now. Tell me more than wrinkled. I don't wanna hear from you and your boyfriend the Lakers come on. Lebron? Give me a break. Gimme a or Kevin love. What a great, man. What a great leader. Oh, my tell her I'll be over here with my millions of dollars. Cool Kuku Kuku goal. Thanks rousing. Rousing endorsement pal. Good stuff. Tyler was never much of a coach. And it's not an easy thing to survive. Lebron? It's not. And I think one of the ironies is the better the head coach, you are the harder. It is to survive under him the best coach LeBron has ever played for. And I don't think it's I don't think it's close. Is there a Spoelstra? And I say this with confidence because I covered that team that year LeBron Spoelstra fired seventeen games into the season. Now that relationship more from that relationship changed, but it was always understood expressed in detail after LeBron left how hard LeBron maids pollsters life, and that's not a shot at LeBron. Denzel the actor that Schumer Kovacs is going to watch a film of or Christian bale or Hemingway or Pablo Picasso or insert anybody real artist real talent real geniuses. They don't like to be managed. They're hard to manage. Their ego. Maniacs. That's a reality. It's true. Top salesperson at your work. Top radio host in your building top quarterback and your National Football League topic player near National Basketball Association. Ninety nine out of one hundred times guys regal maniacs. I read a great thing today. So I was reading this book on Lincoln. I think I've talked about grant. And I was gonna read all the president biographies in a row, which is really easy when you travel in the New York subway because it turns out it takes seven hours to get home every night. So that's great. You got lots of time to read and I got to Grover Cleveland. No offense Grover Cleveland from jersey. I thought I'm going to start at the beginning. And so I'm reading this gigantic George Washington book that is basically the size of seven bibles tau I have its own backpack. But there was a great line in there that I'm going to misquote, but it said that the genius that accompanies most most men has a passionate tach to it that takes off the luster of their greatness. Really smart, right? Most genius is most great success stories are intolerable to be around. There's a fire that burns in those folks that makes them both remarkable and insufferable it's why so often the people are the best ever at what they do aren't very likable by the people around them. I could give you so many examples from Hemingway Picasso to LeBron to Michael Jordan, right? All these guys until LeBron James. And there's a balanced you want someone who's great and pushes them. Or do you want someone who's a sycophant the reality? Is you want someone green pushes them to they learn to sort of master their own greatness? And then you need a second. That's what Tyler was. That's what he was. And he made a great living at it. He's got millions of dollars coming. But he doesn't deserve your sympathy. Because he was never a great head coach. He was just in a great position smart recognize that David Blatt was a really good head coach, David Blatt. Never understood that LeBron was the real genius LeBron's the real genius this entire scenario. He's worth the trouble. He's worth the frustration. He's worth humiliation. He's worth all of it. Because only one person ever maybe maybe has ever been better. Lebron James does LeBron James in the history of humanity and tie Lewis smart enough to recognize that and to subjugate his ego. And he made millions of dollars off of it. That said I'm not really sympathetic of the guy. That's why it's really cool because he made fun of him a lot here on the show. And it's pretty. And I'll give him credit tile lube manned up in a big way. He he's he's listening to the show. I've been a critic of his he's been a critic of my criticisms and is very gracious of former Cavaliers head coach, Ty Luda to join me on the show coach in terms of you being on the program. Was this something that you wanted to do not? Oh, that's that's really awkward. Now that you're here. Are you? Glad to be here. Do you want to do this interview? No, not really. I mean, do you have any real to go instead loneliness? It's hard it's hard sometimes letting go of being relevant, obviously, you're a big deal in Cleveland. Have a lot of people from Cleveland reached out to just tell you. They're going to miss, you know, not really do you think anyone's gonna miss, you know, do you think you're gonna miss you know, just having a connect with your team? No, not really you think you're good at your job. Do you like me at all? No, not highly everybody, really took goodbye. That's a coach actually before I want you to go to to to have the final word here. I don't have the final word. I've always had the final word I had the microphone. So I'm gonna let you decide would you like to continue this conversation. I understand there would I die. Lou. Fades into the career. He deserves the have enjoyed that money, man. Get that money. However, you can I'm not mad at anyone for getting paid anybody go out there and get your dollars. I'm just not gonna I'll say this. I'd rather tightly than you Jackson. I mean, at least I was smart enough to recognize where the talent was in some alternate universe. Think about this. Get your get your mind around this craziness some alternate universe. Because David Blatt became took the job as a top assistant to the Golden State Warriors under Steve kirwin Kerr went to the warriors and committed to it. And I think at a contract and then the Cavs knowing they weren't gonna have LeBron knowing decided to go out and get them the groom young people in run a really high powered brilliant offense. So they went to Blatt and said, can you actually the head coach and Blatt went to current is this okay incurs sort of gave him his blessing in an alternate universe? Lebron is nice enough to let people know he's going back to Cleveland. Cleveland doesn't hire a coach who's going to be a dog. Manic egomaniac to help young guys run this offense. David black goes to the warriors. He's an he's the associate coach for two or three years. They're the greatest show on the face of the earth. And he's now the head coach of our no Anthony Davis in New Orleans instead of gentry getting that job. Maybe he goes to the Knicks wherever he may be and David Blatt is one of the celebrated coaches who just drafted some starred in his so insufferable is arrogance. But you're like he's he's like David price today. Like, you're a jerk. But you're pretty good at your job instead bladders.

"One is based on sources who told me this when i was covering the nba day in day out when david blatt was the head coach and made tie lou is number two and lebron was there before they started the regular season but during sort of the camp in the lead up and the preseason people that i know were in the room people that i absolutely trust told me watch out in a year and a half to two years tyler will be the head coach he's he's gunning for blat already and david blatt didn't do himself any favors he was an i like david but what do i know i had two interactions with a guy one on one for an hour each right it's one on one time i have a tv crew he's being super charming so david did himself and david glantz arrogance by all accounts and i believe them they were the weights initial does he couldn't carry forget lebron but i do wonder if tile lou may because he was a rising star and players really like maybe if it were not forgetting the thing he shouldn't have gotten think lebron if maybe there wasn't some growth there and some opportunity i've seen lebron break people who had greatness in front because they weren't ready to carry the brunt of what lebron brings the table hell lebron's couldn't carry his first year not miami now things really got edgy david blatt is so well respected not now i get it but great popovich when i was way to complement the guy in he broke blat he's broken a lot of the people around him so i'm not gonna pretend they did a good job he didn't i'm not gonna pretend tyler was a competent head coach like a lot of my colleagues who cover the nba because that's what you do it's not true but i do and i thought of that i have some sympathy because it's lebron leaves and leaves destruction in his wake and he's worth every price of it every blessed is in five minutes or so when we start talking lebron's future what would you trade how many years would you give up the guys miami our affiliate down there.
