"Crazy. Think back. Think about it now. It's thinking about it then by like even the clippers now they have a facility but they're building a new bridge silly it's like their second one there staples but they're going to build a new arena as then you guys play literally the worst arena in the nba. Right era and you had no practice. What was what were your do. You have any interactions with donald sterling. Should donald san a couple of times. he was really here and there. You know he'll pop up when he wanted to. You know but. I definitely saw his name on my checks every time you know so he definitely had his imprint in team and yet make just go make his Appearances every now and elgin baylor arrest in elgin. He was pretty much. You know the fixture in being seen come into practices but Quiet though but sold hisself with his appearance in seeing elgin. He's a legend so elegant. You say okay.

"But despite their world class domination, Kobe and Shaq did not see eye to eye. Obviously, we know this When management told them to keep their beef. Private Kobe then didn't interview with Jim Gray, effectively saying that shack was fat and lazy. And effectively at that time. Kobe, of course, was not. We know this effectively. It worked its way back to the big fella who was looking to kick Kobe's ass legitimately. And apparently, Brian Shaw was the only one who could prevent that from happening. So the organization got on the phone called him up and said We need you Be sure we need you here right now. He told Jim Gray, that he busted his ass every day, working out to come back and shape and that he could basically called shack of fat ass and said he was lazy. And if shack and worked hard as hard as he did, they would be unstoppable. He did that right after the meeting with Field and Mitch when they told them to cut it out. The first person that called me with Devon George and he said, Hey, shack that he's gonna be Kobe up tomorrow morning on site in the season, and he was like just the wife and kids. You don't One that can get down here and put a stop to this. And then I got a call later on from Phil Jackson asking me if I could come down and try to get those two together. I jumped on the plane. The seven o'clock flight that next morning took a cab to the practice. Bility when I got there, Shack was already in the parking lot waiting for Colby to come now. Practice didn't start until 10 30, but he was already there like a 30 in the morning when he saw me get out of the cab. He said. What are you doing here? You're not gonna be able to stop what I'm gonna do to him. When I see him. He's probably stood there for about 15 minutes and I just tried to calm him down and I was like, Look, why don't you just go in the film room and let's just all talk it out when we get in there, so cold became maybe 15 minutes later, and I said, Hey, Big fella is not too happy with you, and he said he's gonna walk your ass when he sees, you know, typical Kobe. He looked at me and kind of sarcastic, He said who? I'm scared. I told him I said, Hey, this is career. I have gotten into a scuffle with shack before, so I thought to myself if shack charges him, there's no way that I'm gonna be able to hold him off. So I got Karl Malone, Gary Payton and Horace Grant to come in the room to sit in between these guys to make sure the shack didn't jump on it. And then we just had probably a 45 minute conversation where they both got out what they needed to say to each other on And then I just tried to make the point that you know. Gary Payton sacrificed a lot of money to come here and play with you guys and try to win a championship. So did Karl Malone and you guys are making is about each other. They always knew that what I said to them was from the heart. And it was gonna be the truth. And so that's how I was able to have a great relationship with both of them, and I didn't have to choose a side woman thing about that amazing, amazing story. He had just retired. He was already at home. He was no longer playing with the team. So many great parts to that story, especially the fact that shack showed up early to beat ass. That the dude who has just called lazy probably beat his alarm clock that morning for the first time ever to go handle his business. And I love that part where Kobe was legitimately not afraid of shack despite the fact that be sure I had to go recruit three other guys to help him. Hold him back in the event That chap is going to go. I mean, incredible anecdote. And speaking of Kobe. Obviously, Brian Sean knew him better than most people again. He won five rings with Kobe three is a player two more while coaching him. But his relationship with the mama went all the way back to when Kobe was just 11. People don't probably realize that my relationship with Kobe goes back to when he was about 10 or 11 years old and I was playing over in Italy against his father and I met Kobe over there. His junior year of high school. I was in the finals with the Orlando Magic going to get the Houston Rockets and his father brought him to a game in Orlando, and by this time he had grown to be same height, his knees and he said to me after I finished my senior year next year, I'm gonna jump straight into the MBA, and I just kind of just laughed it off, like, sure, Okay, kids, and, you know, a year later, he was on the Lakers and I was playing against him. Two years. Maybe. After that we were on team together and, you know, won back to back to back championships at teammates and then obviously, tomb or as I coached him. With all the things that I had dealt with myself, you know, my mother Father, sister passing in a car accident back in 93. You know, I've dealt with tragedy and tremendous loss. So I learned probably from that that when people are here and there in your life in their present, but you need to do things with them while they're here, right? You create those type of memories, and I did that with Kobe while he was here. So we're talking about somebody. Obviously, you can tell By the way I talk about Brian Shaw. How strongly I feel about Brian Shaw. Extremely classy, very, very bright, Great, Great leader, excellent player, but he's dealt with some unfathomable tragedy in his life. And even I get into this with him. In the podcast where I don't even it even though I've known him And he was at Santa Barbara and UCSB. The same time I was. That's something I never even have been comfortable talking to him about. The fact that he lost both his parents. And his sister in a car accident back in 1993, But he brought that up, and he talked about that in the way that it.

"Of DOT. Aptitude who good did it ever reached? A boiling point is basically what I would say Rick Fox Acai. Rick Fox. Respect because he was a very good player, he had been the main guy in Boston they were bad teams, but he was the main guy. He actually was a guy who sort of kind of. Had Kobe's year on they. Both spoke Italian, which is Kinda funny. The Rick Fox was born in America that had this kind of international flair to them. shop really respected or Fox considering a very good friend. So I'd say if anybody was Fox and there was one moment. During the NBA Finals in in two thousand four. When everything was falling apart and nothing was going well and Cougar shooting in Saint. Shots. and Gary Payton wasn't playing well and they had abandoned the triangle and Rick Fox called for meeting of the five guys had been on all three championship team. So is rick. Devon George Shack, Kobe and Derek Fisher and they met with Phil and they could we please get back to the triangle offense. Let's play. Just try playing the five of us and let's see how that goes. Joe Jackson said Okay I'll try and it didn't work but it was a good idea and it was Rick Fox got leading the charge. House. I think that he spn. Interview with sack Gobi as it could be off like you know I dig sponsored for not. Getting the new guys together but I'm not to every. Veteran I almost woman gatty Britain probably have like, no. It's not called balloon and Gary Payton who came to the NACHO. Have even do do anything I. think that team was doomed because shack was no longer at. I checked every shiners. Franken. Was Not like in a thirty, five, thirty, five wells sort of members and Kobe shooting like. I think they were just tired of each other. Some everyone was tired of each other. They're tired. They're bored after awhile when people say how many more titles could they've won none they were done like they've done with it. They're all done with it. They're just tired of it on the whole. Eagle. Colorado rates situations hanging over this team. Malone got her Hayden was the wrong point guard shack. Definitely you still great but it wasn't the same and he wasn't as working as hard and. He wanted out and they're all about money and greed and it was done and Detroit. The thing I detroit is just a better team they weren't as talented they eight. Point. added. Match matched. Zeke. So well, first of all, they were long the head guys, prints, Chauncey billips, rip Hamilton who gave Kobe a lot of trouble. Officers. Yeah. They also had a lot of big guys. Seen yes. A lot of big is beat the crap at a shack and they kept bringing more big is bringing more big is and they were physical. They were really physical. They were Ben Wallace and Chauncey bill to Rasheed?

"devon george" Discussed on Warriors Off-Court
"Just because there's been so many new the personalities there's been so many new guys to get to know so many new stories to tell and as you said all these guys are really playing to prove that they belong which is is a fascinating storyline because even if these some of these guys are in. The warriors long-term plans this specific season means a lot to them so we can easily look at these games and say these don't really really matter except for lottery position. But for someone like Damian Lee. When he's healthy he this every game matters you know he? He's trying to get off that to any contract and prove that he belongs in this league so that to me is been a lot of fun and from your perspective. I'm sure you feel the same way. There was such little roster turnover for the past few years which was nice in the sense that you got to develop relationships with these guys you got to know them on a pretty intimate level and then and now there's so many new faces in some ways. I like that because I was running out of new things to say about calendar. I was running out of new things as take us like. What do you say about someone like Steph curry who has had so many phenomenal profiles written about him over the years whereas the Eric Paskal who is very relevant right now? He there literally hadn't been a profile Everett on him until this season. So it's been. It's been fun from NAP perspective. I'm sure you probably feel that to an extent. Yeah I think that when you look at the The the guys that are new the other thing that you know players news and some players don't get this. Is that every game every practice every time you're out working you're basically trying out the league and you know and and so if you're not working hard if you're not if you show bad body language when you're taken out of a game and you're not part of the team other teams have scouts. They see that and so if if it doesn't work out for the team you're playing for maybe that's going a hurt you and get signed by somebody else so so for these guys. It's really important. I think this year because we don't know what the roster's look like next year. But but yeah it's it's it's it's fun to have a new group and it's fun to be around young guys because they they bring a lot of energy. It's totally different vibe than the veteran you you know very business like vibe that they the warriors had last that they weren't having fun they're always have fun but it was just a you know that team team was very professional and they knew how to get ready. This team is learning how to do that. And I think that's the fun part of it. You know the the job to me has always been you look at it season like a book and each games a different chapter and it's always I always kind of go back during the season. And you know maybe something that happened. And in Chapter Four is relevant chapter seventy two that. Yeah that's what you know. That's something he's better at. That injury happened and now he's feeling that same injury again. So it's it's something to kind of track a little bit how these players are working. How they're getting better and and look at the end of the season but being around fresh faces and a lot of new guys? It's always fun because you get to know these people and find out who they are. Who Look over quarter way through the season the words of had more players Miss Games? I have missed more games due to injury for players so then twice as many games as any other team in the NBA and the only time in warriors history that recent wars history. Modern warriors history that compares to that with steps rookie year. Which I'm sure you remember really well There was that famous game regular season. Season Finale in Portland. I'm not going to give away too much about that. I I'd like to hear your thoughts since you were actually at that gave him guessing. War Got was hurt craft. Br everyone was her. Yeah Devon George ended up fouling out. They literally didn't have another body they only had five guys right. So Nellie is is telling due Callahan I think was the official saying. Hey I can't play. These guys are dressed but they're hurt because came by rule. They have to go in okay so they go in Eh stop play injured so they go in and they foul guide mealy and then they they subbed out and the the guy goes off and goes right to the locker for the second injure guy comes on and he fell out and goes right back to the locker room. Now I believe during the game Chris Hunter who was a six ten center the warriors at got hurt during the game. so He's already back in the locker room so we had eight. So there's three back there so now Devon George has I come back in and by rule what happens is every time he commits a foul two technical fouls rock. And so you know Portland's always been a crazy place for the warriors because last happens in Portland. That's where they think that's clay broke. Broke out in in Portland and a game there. He also had spoke to his hand last. Three asphalt hand Steph came back in the playoffs in Portland. They clinched the Western division for the first time. And you know eons in two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen which at the time was a big deal for the Western Ocean that's unbelievable the Pacific Division And so You know they clinched. I think I think I bleep Portland's where they clinched a playoff spot in. Oh Six oh seven two so always add some things but but again. That's a rare rule. It's only happened a couple times in. NBA history history to be able to broadcast through. That was pretty pretty pretty funny Sir could be even worse is what you say it could get worse. Yeah In back in two thousand two thousand and one maybe that the we. We beat the clippers February and we were like fifteen gene and thirty two and we finished seventeen sixty five And so could be a lot worse than veteran warrior. Fans know that so. I think that's why they're looking at this year. The great deal patients love more of my conversation with Tim. Roy Right after the break this week on not not your century Rosa Parks polly Klaas Christian garnered latrell sprewell and the rolling stones. And the hells angels. I'm King Kaufman Kaufman. Join me for not your century. It's like history class but five minutes long and interesting wherever you get your podcasts. Thought about what Eric Pascoe number forty one pick and June's draft has been able to do this season. Did you see this. Come in at all. Well you know right around draft time I kept reading of the warriors. Were High Paschal that they were looking at it. Maybe the late first round pick and you know so I do my due diligence agents that go look at the draft sites video. Okay can play a little bit okay so but I think what it. There's there's two things wanted just shows us again that in this league if you get opportunity you know. Sometimes you find guys that. Everybody Kinda overlooks and kind of like drain on in the sense. Where there you know he he stays in college awhile? He's a four year guy actually played five because he got Richard of after transferring. So he's an older guy he's more mature and has learned how to play. And I thank you know Michigan State Villanova. There's about four five programs actually Wichita states and otherwise. If you get four you gotTa Wichita State there toughen. They don't apply Rave of rigor if he goes to the Rabi So So to me again. It's just you know having that chance you know. He's on the warrior roster of last year. You know he probably is starting to your in Santa Cruz but he got a chance. That's an in. He's he knows how to score over bigger people and uses body and and he looks like he's going to be an NBA player for a long time and he's got a little old school. Gema Matt could see him playing in the nineties and the eighties and stuff like that back to simply because of Knowing how to use his body and then how to play physically he's just so strong to and I and this might sound silly but you really realize how much that matters in the NBA especially.

"But you spilling the drinks. Oh, you hit it with those big hands of. I know it's so at the end of the day, there's gonna be a plan on the wall on the board. The wall. Look. This Mike worse segment ever. It's near the top five for sure. And they got that plan on the board in that, whatever that is amiss here. But I got all these other guys lined up and they're going to just keep going. If they're gonna wait, wait. No self. But pecking order, you've got to go for the top dudes. And as you go for top guys. And if they don't respond the way you want them to assuming you're chasing, more than the guy that you probably got pocket that guy that you got hit pocket is just kind of waiting to see what's going shake out there with the. Okay. So see in about fifteen minutes. We're gonna do it. Live here at bar. We take it or shake it. So I want everybody to give me a take key take it. Joe? Live looting down. Ramar Louis and doughty donate. Pack place starting at five thirty this morning. Then you'd everybody coming out to way to start the week. It isn't it? The way a pre party party Friday and our very own. Hey is out with the. I'm here with us today. What's her name Oscars of all, from Whittier? And you said, you had a shot off with somebody tells we got happy birthday not your Martinez. How old is not you here nachos. I here was not is he Lonzo at work. For me. Hang on his ankle. I can. Right. Having your army twenty some years, four years. Yeah. Come on. Thank you. Got tests on me got a ankle brace. That was your first question is it locked up? He is the way affect if I would ask that, how would that have gone? Oh. Not as well. Probably not as well. I ki- let's say AC coons. All right. Let's. Double standard work in America, part, five tonight on ESPN do by. That's an interesting one. When OJ got super weird he got. Well, he got loose weirder loser loser. Coli Jimmy Butler, big names, Kyrie Irving. You still think they got thirty million ish to spend best is put quite a separate category. If you can get quite you gotta do that. But what about those other guys? What if the idea is you can get a Jimmy Butler for thirty or I can give three different guys. Ten and spread it around and make my team deeper. Give myself more options make the team, maybe a little bit better defensively, or whatever it might be spread it around a bunch of guys or go big on one more guy. No. If it's not collide, we just might as well chop it up and give it to little bit. Everybody gets you know we gotta get some players. If you go back and you just look at in you go back to you. Look at check Kobe years, whoever there, wasn't three four weeks that was, too. And then everybody else was good players, whether they drafted him, whether it was Devon George or, or the machine, or whatever you want to call it. They had somewhat role players and let the two big dogs handle everything else in this. Essentially, Golden State to a degree except Golden State's role players are really, really good. And they've got three. Yeah. Yeah. They got three musters. Really? I mean at the end of the day, a lot of people don't think clay's a month. They think Klay is than the wrong, no. But a lot, even even their ownership group doesn't think he's a monster. Hell, they tried to trading. If it wasn't for Jay west, he be somewhere else. So when you look at it they have a couple of players, but you also gotta look at, like Houston. Houston had two monsters, but then they didn't have a third. So now they're trying to somehow clip the Jimmy Butler deal. I mean it for us. I think you got LeBron you got Katie. You got AD. You got coups. Those three coups is is is growing..

"Particularly the back court obviously, and your question. You start ask yourself. Do you need another front court player who can give you twenty when you're back court is completely bear? And is there are -tunities there where you can swap for a young guard in exchange for a young small to power forward? I mean there are. Those kind of move, I'm talking about. They're still out there that we just don't know yet. And the thing that I think swings this from being the favorite because you have the best top line guys being the actual favorite is. And I'm just picking guide random, because we know that he's probably gonna move. We saw move last year and I know that they didn't win the championship but it's going to be a player like Marcus Saul or brook, Lopez one of these guys that isn't a top line that everybody at nine A one and free agency races to get their offer in. But rather that second wave or maybe even beyond that we sit down and say, okay now what does my team look like with got my stars? Now, I need to start picking a guy up because I have a need. It's not just he's a great player a great player, obviously, you're going to go in on that. But what do I need? Exact Oberg Lopez fits that role. I keep going back to Toronto, Toronto one that be for two. Number one. They had the best player in the series and quiet Leonard who was brilliant and played like it. And number two, they had all of their role. Guys took turns being great Siachen would be great. One night, vanfleet would be great. Another night, cow, lower would be great. Another night. It was those wasn't just went for fifty every night. It's that they had all the other guys that we're able to do all those things and I wanna know who the other guys for the Lakers are before we just declare them the team to be going into the season. It matters a great deal. What comes after Kyle? Kuzma, it does, but I'm of the belief that there's enough quality good basketball players out there in free agency that they certainly could go out there in acquire or take a sniff at NC without panicking. I mean, the G league to find there's enough guys out there that they can construct them put in place. If you go back to what I was saying yesterday, just think about I know it's not check Nicole being all that, and it's not pob if you think about some of those players that the Lakers had that just kind of, you know, the machine he was around, you know, if you grab one of those type of guys here to hear your okay, you get like I said, again, you get like one of those Devon George type players, that's not. But he's good enough to get being done, the Devon George type. That's the trick. That's what you were talking about earlier, ELS, find veteran Ryan Shaw, there's the right choice and there's the wrong choice. And if you make the wrong choice to if you don't pick Brian, Sean Devon, George in those guys, and you pick the other guys that don't give you that little kind of maybe we got to kind of know what you do. Right. We know what it looks because for another team the dodgers were at that pivotal moment to go you Darvish. Do we go? Just invert Lander. Around door. Right. So he happens. We know that first hand being here. No light so this to me as the exciting part, and this is where it comes back to what we're talking about a second ago. This is where rob is going to be exposed not because they got the Anthony Davis thing done. Anthony Davis key. I'm gonna steal your line. Anthony Davis was coming here. Yeah. Okay. Nothing happened because there wasn't he was on the way to Boston and then rob Pelinka hall, save you. That didn't happen told him. Hey, hold up just stop in New York, meet you at the hotel. Right. Right. But now when it comes to selecting all of those other guys when it comes time to select between you Darvish and Justin Verlander or player or player be that's where it's going to determine whether or not the Lakers are on the right page or not.

"Is there something Nick aside from? An insurance policy that you lose without boogie cousins will ya. You lose the ability to give Steph and Katy simultaneous rests and run.

You're going to be able to give him his touches there. And this is C. We talked about for the show.

This doesn't look like is your as you've alluded to Jenna. It doesn't look like it's just he's out for the series. It looks like he's going to be out for the next few months, which of course, would not come out for the postseason. Yeah. This is a huge injury. Because you talk about the rest part. But also how the warriors wanna play basketball. They want to build a spread the court. They want to build a pass the ball the overall movement. So Steph, and clay, ultimately, they wear you out boogie cousins with his ability to build a shoot three. He is such a good. Offense of player. So it's not just oh, we have a good sub.

So they'll talk about city about metro city. No, we're no soccer with with with Stein. Just Just just. just then we don't want us rabbit hole. And it's just like, you know, it'll never stop. So couple of things about the tournament. We were just talking about the Izzo thing. So I saw today that inlet John rant was amazing yesterday. I was actually in studio during the game. And we were watching it, and he was just like incredible. So he's easily a top three pick. I think in the NBA draft this coming season, but Jay Williams. Funchess get that ready for me. Jay Williams, actually said something that even though people may think is a hot take. I actually think it makes some sense. However was a critique, no, no it was it was. He was he was lauding Moran. But it was almost at the expense. It sounded like it was at the expense of Zion. And I don't want people to get carried away with Zion aspect and this because I feel like he is going to get cannibalized here as kind of go down this path of the tournament and getting ready for the draft and whatnot. But play with Jay Williams said this morning on ESPN Ziya Williamson is the biggest celebrity in all sports right now. I don't think any GM will pass on him for the first pick new draft. But John rents game potentially will translate to the NBA better. Let me tell you why. Because he's a combo think about all the combo guards that we see in the NBA right now. Now, some people can say, hey, doesn't have the strength of Russell Westbrook. But he's having a better sophomore year than Russell Westbrook had at UCLA and think about the kind of guards that we've seen the league right now. Everybody from trae young kind of freedom. He's playing with shooting wise. Do you think about all the other guards that you see in the league dynamic combo guards? He fits right into that style of play because it was a building to pass. Shoot and play with the basketball. He's dynamic. He's scary. I agree with him that the game could come easier to him just because it's a guard league. It's a perimeter oriented league Corey actually said the same thing. Steph was asked about him yesterday. And he said he had similar a similar sentiment as jaded but can affect on one thing. Go ahead. I mean, come on the biggest celebrity in sports speed celebrity in college sports that you fair enough. Right. I'll acknowledge that biggest liberty in college sports. 'cause I I he's more recognizable. Kyle areas. Yeah. I mean, I don't know college football is bigger than college. But everyone knows on is now he's got the name. Right. I think I would vote that way I'm saying like college college football has a visitor each bigger following nothing like the tournament. So if he does his thing, which we'll like he's gonna have how many highlight dunks, right? Right. So. Yeah. So the every single one of those is going to go viral, even to a larger extent and all the ones that you had on North Carolina for sure so I'm with you for sure. But I almost feel like it's we're going to get a lot of these guys..

"And we've flying. Out of sportscenter, and you're sort of measuring like what's the top of the show is that Brady and Bella check. Or is it Porzingis and Anthony Davis and the combination of Anthony Davis and having the Lakers involved? That's like news on steroids. But even like, the Blake Griffin trade was a big deal and it came out of nowhere. And it's prize everybody, but it was over. And then you talked about the aftermath. The Davis thing may be with us for a while. And so it's like, you know, like trademark it is a sport unto itself. People forget the games around some nights into saving graces that. The trade deadline is not after the all-star borough that we wouldn't have three more weeks of this that we actually get we'll we'll have some closure, and then we'll worry about who's going to get out and go from there. But in in lead into we'll talk down and wrote about it will lead into a fascinating summer of big name free agents out there. Probably one of the better classes that we will see in the big big markets in New York, and Brooklyn and LA. Chicago. I mean, we have a show for ten cents, which is our Chinese partner. And I do this kind of by monthly show now for them in one of the things sometimes I'd like to hear stories and they're asking me for my all star game memories. And I don't have him because most all weekends there prior to the trade that line, and I'm thinking what about that? I a all star game. And I'm like also weekend. I'm going all I remember is it was a prelude to the Carmelo Anthony trade, and I really just remember being in my room on the phone and all those also weakens our prior to the trade deadline like I'm like, I don't have all star memories. I just remember being on my phone somewhere. But now it is better. It's post deadline. You got the buyout stuff? But it's not quite as intense. You can actually walk outside for a few minutes. See the sun, and we could probably think that the Marcus cousin straight from a couple years ago on why the NBA changed rule when cousin basic needed. So that was an easier. I was home. I remember, bro. That I didn't go to that game. I was home which made it easier to remember work on that. Oh, you know what I was there? I was flying home. I remember I start reporting on a plan. Remember, I was struggling to get wifi. So that's how I remember. These all star weekends is the moment. Right. That I have wifi or not well, probably mine is that we probably chain Jason Kidd weight during all star weekend. And, you know, not in basically green to deal on Thursday and. I think the all star game was Norrland's that year to and not be able to get a dumb because Devon George win. Wave is no trade and having having I think we had an internship outside his house with paperwork, and he wouldn't because he would have lost bird rights there and Jerry Stackhouse coming out and basically saying that well when I got bought out I'm gonna go right back because you all that whole deal away. I remember being in Rod's office when I came out and said, yeah, wanna get bought I'm gonna just go back to Dallas. And you couldn't you could do that back then. And basically the league said none. You gotta take him out. We could take Devon George out. And then wind up being Keith Van horn on the bike. Yeah. Then sign and trade Keith Van horn would have been retired for three years and they had to change that rule because yes, we game eight million dollars. He sat with a master at circumventing circa venting rules, and certainly breaking the spirit of the rules. Well, it wasn't a rule. So nothing illegal write. Eventually it went into the league Lee NBA legals, no pad. They keep for the next CBA. And that rule was changed eventually, Bobby. We'll we'll see plenty of each other here the next few days, but it's gonna be fun. Always sounds good. Thanks for listening to this episode of the worst part of big..

"Land Rover, above and beyond. You ever did the PB Danske. Yeah, I was just trying to figure it out. What was it like the school? That's one of the few. I do know. I don't know. Many would know. No, the peewee Herman dot collection. That's right. I love that bowtie. So let's go back to LeBron and what we're talking about it. It's just funny because you heard the caller you've, there's this passion for things that are anti LeBron and I get it when he was in a different uniform. But these like what he was saying, warm up to it though the at the warm up to kind of warm of you've been used to something for so long and using dislike him for so long because he was the enemy. Now he comes on your side, but you got to warm up to it. I mean, think about it. No, I, it's LeBron if it were somebody else perhaps, but we're talking about LeBron and the caller said, oh, it's we're not a losing franchise. No, of course. Not. Historically, you're talking about the last six, seven years in the playoffs in five years. I mean, of course, it's a big deal. We any never was Kobe rival because they never met the playoffs. It wasn't like he's a self manufactured rivalry because the the greatness in. Who's better Jordan, and they, you know, LeBron plays everywhere. But you know, it thought is a purposes. I think you still kind of look at him as a two guard, even though he's at three and a four. But you still, you know, because he handles the ball just Brazilan. He does things, he kind of thing, but you look at their careers in in all of that. So it becomes arrive. You guys get the sense that because this is if I'm being an amateur psychiatrist for a second, what it feels like to me is that the people that are Kobe fans are somehow it's a, it's a threat to Kobi's greatness that LeBron is here when it isn't. Kobe won five championships, the bronze not gonna wind, five championships here. Kobe was Kobe. He's the black mama. He's the guy that everybody loved here. And if LeBron comes here and wins a chip and does and wins an MVP or whatever it is, it doesn't diminish Koby in any meaningful way at all what it feels like. People are worried about that. Nobody has the second greatest thing ever magic because because people prior to the Bronx. In here the and I, the media says, George, Chelsea is no longer with us. The media Aladdin to them or they're not with us right now. Oh, I thought some happened over Georgia's getting his show and three thirty starting on September four has to wear. So I know, right I, it was manufactured as this rivalry where LeBron will strengthening kick LeBron get a statue. You even got somebody basketball player, Devon George came out the other day, and we'll saying is gonna take LeBron three championships before we can think about giving him a statue, but Dole's are the type of conversations that was going on prior to him signing here, but we'll take for him to get a statue and you sitting there going, wait a minute, man, you know? And that's just that's just the way fans thing I get, but they're all predicated on the assumption that somehow LeBrun success in LA will be detrimental to Kobe, and that's because he's done it everywhere. He's one everywhere. Good. He's, I want him to consider. He's. Considered the greatest? Will you high some. Kobe was never considered the greatest player to ever play? No. Well, Brian is so all of that is all in one big pot of soup. Is this all messed up when you go back and say, well, there's, there's been other Lakers that have traveled to other places before they became Lakers, but they were younger, I think we might have been more older, right? Like thirty two, but we don't talk about, we'll the saying, oh, you're right, you know what I'm saying? But the cap we talk about Shaq. We talk about even though to diesel had a playoff round championship run in Orlando, but he's a Laker and even knowing when to Miami want, he's still a Laker because he did most of his dirty work here in LA. Michael, all this goes out the window if LeBron shows up here and they start winning. I mean, we're, we're done with it. Yeah, yeah, no question you're not done with?.
