Shannon Sharpe reacts to Lakers GM 3 loss to Nuggets in Western Conference Finals
"III LOVES SIGHT THAT LOSS. From the Lakers and how about we break it down right now guys Lebron. What is third triple-double this postseason, but it wasn't enough against the nuggets. Last Night Denver led by twenty as late as the fourth quarter Lebron Ford in thirteen points in a last-ditch comeback at. Albury, finished with a team I twenty, eight, ten of which came in the fourth defend off Lebron the Lakers and hold on for the one fourteen to one. Oh, six Windsor Shannon. What is the biggest reason? The Lakers lost this one. They came out they came out and look like a team was to oh, and they just thought you know we don't come on here and do what we do and and not play hard and you could tell early on the nuggets were getting whatever they want. They drive laid up in the paint they you'll get to his dominant hand his right hand. Kiva phenomenal player. He's GonNa make shot skip that shot that he hit with the clock winding down on the right foot. I note most guys right handed shoot that shot Dirk Nowitzki made famous what he shot off his left leg I've never seen right hand guy shoot that shot up the up the wrong foot. I mean, 'cause we shoes tonight expected to go in everybody that's a bad shot clock winding up I expected to go in but I did not expect the Lakers to look this flat. We've haven't seen them even even against a Portland skip the first game even against the rockets the first game they didn't look this flat they I'm like broad do realize the western conference finals. you mentioned it a D. Two rebounds and they came in the last five minutes of the Game Hey deeply forty-three minutes. Avail one rebound white one rebuilt. If you tell me skill that the nuggets will out rebounded again by nineteen. If you tell me, they're going to turn the ball over the Lakers. I'm going to say the nuggets going to win the series, but I don't believe that I believe Lebron ad will play better I. Believe Lebron will be more aggressive because I thought the second the second in the third quarter. Eighty go it and it seemed like Lebron was designed to say you know what you gotta go hey, we're gonNA keep going. But skipped ahead, given up so much ground they had dug themselves. So much of a whole maybe if they don't allow get a eighteen twenty, maybe ten twelve now they can complete the comeback but I thought the Lakers played like a team that was looked. Like they didn't have they had a away game and if through this game away but what are the process what you've done if that you giving these guys confidence because now they think they can beat you they do they feel like Murray for sure thinks he can be yes and he's talking like He. SHOULD BE UP TWO GAMES TO ONE IS I've seen story before the thing is with this guy when he gets hot and. Those lash those last second shot because I saw him in game seven you remember the clock out of both have and he throwing up three's from twenty five from thirty feet and he switching. So he has confidence in their gaining companies but the problem that also has get, you can't have every guy that played for the nuggets with the exception of to a temp equal to or more free throws they Lebron James that tells. Me He's not getting he's not driving the ball. He's not aggressive enough or they're not calling it. So for me, that was the different. They just lacked intensity. They came out like a team that was too low and had the game to throw away I. Expect I know for certain and I'm going I, don't care I. don't care what the line he'll. I won't do on it right now you do I won't do right now.
Artist Bruce Sulzberg on painting Rafael Nadal
"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.

"The guy who doesn't know the salary cap just got into Davis might be the executive year. They got. Well, no that franchise think about that. That franchise did the things that have one stable person were in charge of it. People would be marveling at what a leader, the Lakers have, but because of what has happened over the last two years with their leadership, we know good, and well away those two stars just wanted to play at that place, and everyone else, just actively got in the way like everybody the leadership of the Lakers. Everybody just got in the way and now the inevitable thing has happened. Which is LeBron James gets what he wants. I've seen people trying to build out exactly what this Rosser is because even though they just quired, Anthony Davis, rob. Pelinka. Also surprised at what a dire situation there cap is because the really isn't a lot of flexibility here for them to improve this team. There's talk that instead of paying third MAC sky spread that money around against other pieces, because right now you got LeBron and Anthony Davis C you spend it on third max, then your next best players cow Kuzina who's actually good enough to be your third. Best player you average what nineteen I don't think you need another fourth best player in that scenario air guy. But I think the reason why you don't need a third max. You're better off spreading the money around, because then he got a mid level exception, and then roster spots like six to eleven all veterans minimums players, and then maybe room for a couple of second round picks gover, the third max guy. Coups was your fourth best guy, you have a really good basketball team and just fill the rest in shooters. Right. I mean you say that, but that the warriors just got beat with that formula. Like as soon as guy got hurt. The warriors just got you. They were thin. The warriors were obviously. Right. And the, the heat, the first heat team was, obviously thin and lost in the final. But probably should have won that NBA finals. But still made it to the NBA final probably should have won. I mean they were shadowboxing game one beating Dallas, LeBron Wade feeling good about themselves. I mean they probably should have won a lost in sex. I listen, no one could have predicted that LeBron would be, you know, would be defended that while by JJ Berea, who could have seen income and no one. You can't say, put it on the poll gear. Lebatardshow. Can you say a team that lost in six should have won it for sure? Yup. That. That team lost to Dirk Nowitzki by himself, and in all the time since the first time that one guy has been enough since then is what we just saw it wasn't just by himself, how quick history forgets how money yon Muhima was from the topic. I remember this series so vividly to Shawn Stevenson like the most. Grind cardinal contributions, both play in a series of being a huge X-factor JJ Berea, obviously, folks will be written.

How's it all I actually have the the twenty eleven finals wanna have at home, and my mom has the the old seven. Real won the regular season one. So yeah, my mom is says great. She always wanted to keep everything amid she saved every newspaper article from the last one years, and she's just super problem number one fan. And so when I actually I didn't carry it at twelve you'll so big. So we shipped it to her after after I got it and still standing right there for to look at every day. See I thought there was gonna be like you send it back to the league office or something 'cause there's a legend that I don't think is true that you through the Western Conference championship trophy in the trash can in twenty eleven 'cause you just you the championship was all that matter. But that never happened. That's like an urban. I didn't throw it in trust handed. Somebody basically said we got one of those already. That's not why we're here sort of the story was that. We won the Western Conference finals against or KC. And I did a an live interview for the TV with with doors Burke. I was done. And then we got the trophy and held it up and the fans of fired up, and then I walked off a walked off right after we got the trophy of walked to the back and walk to the locker room because figured that. Was it only later landed find out the doors looking for me. She wanted to interview me for the fans with obviously Irina your Rena. I didn't know that. I thought I already did my interview, and I was done otherwise, I would have stayed. I love doors lover work big fan. So I didn't mean no disrespect there at all. I thought the presentation was over I had the trophy with took the picture handed it to my teammates, and I had left. So then Doris is basically sat in there. I okay, here's third and she's looking for me, and I'm already gone was already in the locker room. So I felt really bad after and then the team, I guess followed me and. The presentation was over as well. But and so there was nobody to interview and that was ended up being a bad. Look, I think, but people were just not eating Cubans out there to take the interview nobody he's usually the first one in line to get. But I'm not sure if he was there for for that. And so I felt bad afterwards. I mean, it wasn't like I wanted to set an example like this. You know, we want to final trophy. It's no we want wanna if I would've known that. She was looking for me. I would have been there stay. So that was that was that was a bit bit embarrassing after you know, obviously respect how much work you have to put in just to get to the west coast finals so beat the Western Conference champs. It's not like a I threw a trophy away. But yeah, that's not what what we wanted that year. We wanted to hold thing and ended up working out. Well, you got it.

First of all you wait in the back for like ours. I bet it's gotta be just actually in some other stadium and your way too. So we went in for the Chinese alphabet. So Germany it was actually not at the beginning. We almost dead last. So we were waiting literally for three four hours in that stadium. Just sitting there playing dumb game. So we hit each other. And then the next guy's because we were literally nothing to do. And so finally, we come down and you get through this tunnel. And in the tunnel gave you the flag as yeah. And picturing sitting there for four hours holding a big German flag. All you get it later later. You gotta later once once you go down closer to the stadium. So at some point, our, you know, our our federation is really large, and we had a few hundred people. So there was a moment where basically the whole tunnel was just. Germans. And I have the flag in the front. We're all I'm fired up. I'm looking forward to about to walk in. And then the entire federation starts singing Dirk show media flag, and and German German song, obviously. And I remember turning around and the whole the whole federation of singing it, and I'm just turning around. And I'm waving the flag on them. It's still gives me goosebumps. So that took his day even more than than the actual round does which was an incredibly honored to lead your nation out in in in the stadium. But that moment in the tunnel. I'll I'll never forget it it still gives me goosebumps. And yeah, it was the that was a credible experience. I'd forgotten about this until I started doing a little research for this.

It just doesn't seem plausible that they're convinced played summer league after his rookie year and then played again after my second year play to summer. That's not. Yeah. That happened. The MVP or did you did you graduate one game in the today's was still played in Long Beach and went to Utah. So it was like a whole month we were on the road. So I did that after my second year where I was always sort of established just because I missed performer rookie season, I missed that one. So they wanted me to play twice. And I said, it's fine. So I usually played all that summer through anyways up plate national team. And then I went right into summer league. So yeah, the first year going through it was was tough. I mean, there was games where it didn't play at all. Then no all the plays and defensive coverage is at times because there was just so much happening at once. But looking back now, I was an important year for me to just get you severed ING and set me up to to be good in the second year. And always tell the story. My second year was a little fortunate. We had we had a power Fortnum Gary Trent, and he played really well there for force in my rookie year come into my second year towards hamstring. So he was going to be out my entire second year. And Nellie is like, okay. We don't really think you can guard any power forts. So I think you'll be great a powerful I played some some small for my rookie season. We actually started bigger, and they saw my future more as a small four because I was skinny and and so then we were really out of power for it. So Nellie, listen, if they post you up you just fight like crazy and get around and just front them when they the ball over. We sent Shawn Bradley over and let his length be. Actor and that's how we kind of got away with it. My my second and third year just being little, you know, not as physical being skinny and not here really haven't any post defense, which I'll just always got away with fronting everybody. I tried like when they cross half court. I was always trying to already fight him in front of. So they wouldn't have to post me up. So that's how we made a work on the defensive end. And obviously work great on offense that was able to to to to pull someone else. Fours oughta way from the basket. And that's where that's where you know, the shooting four kind of thing was the worked. So speaking of sort of tough early days, I was texting with Steve Nash about you know, what should I asked her? What are some of your memories of Dirk that are not R rated? You know, what are some of what our memories I'll read you what he said one of the things he said he said ask him about the early days in Dallas at the Landry center. It was our practice court in a medical center. He and I would go twice a day shooting playing one on one and some horse..

"I mean, you can never know against the team with that stack like that with with basically three hall of famers and a bunch of other great players. So I wasn't quite sure we we were hoping that coming back and game four and then game five grinding out at the end of jet making that big three on the wing to go up there three too. But you know, what I went through a no six I mean, we were up to old we already had the parade planned and next, you know, we lose four straight. So I wasn't gonna I wasn't getting carried away at all. I knew this was gonna be streaming hard to close in somebody else's court. It's always hard close series. So I don't I don't think I thought we had this out. We're going to have to play our best basketball close it out. And and it's actually the funny thing I was terrible in the first one of. Twelve or forcing things I tried to get going so bad to help the team Windass. And I actually it was better for me. Stay out of the way, the guys put great jet was amazing. Injecting JJ extra believe it or not in the starting lineup was changing thing for us from starting after gains threes JJ starting JJ. And then we brought the Sean off the bench. That was a you changing point for us and in the series. So yeah. So I'll never forget this one. Actually do remember cardinal at halftime. We're still op- of game six, and I'm obviously the press. What am I doing Cam by one and cardinal? You know, he's he's a fall as as I'm sure so he comes through s he's got both fist pumping there. And I was like what does he want right now? And he's like you are terrible. And we're still winning. You know, you make few and we got this. So he was he was all fired up. So you had me laughing there at halftime. And then kind of relax a little bit. And we were able to really pull it out. I made a few shots in the second half. But I gotta say the team actually one now. And you know, I wasn't at my best since Portland the first round. And it wasn't that my best. I think in the final. So I was at my best, and okay, Casey and LA thought up played. My best series those two in in off that eleven Ron. And I thought that the team was phenomenal Portland, and and Miami, obviously, the the iconic image. Everyone is gonna always remember from that series as you walking off the floor when the game is ending going to the locker room and needing together self that story's been told it was told, Ian Thomson told it beautifully in his book new book, the soul of basketball, which sky was interviewed Scott, Tom under PR guys. Here was interviewed for. Just I I don't care that you've told the story before it's it's it's incredible usual did you like did you you just needed time? Right. And you just I I'm trying to picture the visiting locker room in Miami. You literally just laid down on a bench or went in the shower. I can't remember the order of the shower. There has a little bench there just out just went there. You know, it started with alway remain to Olympics. The first time I made my dream happen. And I was standing on the court, and we made it we'd be Puerto Rico in the final game. And we go into lympics, and I feel these tears coming on. And I'm just it'll be fine and exiting on the court sobbing. My teammates hugging me. And I couldn't control it at all. For like the next fifteen minutes, so fast forward, the games almost over. I had that last layup and then lefty on the cuts which I never do. I'm not a obviously. So you know, I just feel that same feeling coming on. And I was like I don't wanna stand here and saw and hug my teammates. So let me just get out of the way and recruit for a couple of minutes, and then come back out and a rushed off the corden and lay there on that bench by the by the shower, Scott, Scott, my guy chased him Frank..

But I'm gonna be sprinting from rector of trying to make my shot is fairly quick. But the moving in between the Rexel via a problem. But I think I can make clay clay, and you should not have to Sam out of time. That's not fair. Maybe once it gets closer on my might actually tried and Dallas or soc- what what times look like and see how fast I gotta shoot and move. But we'll see I'll make it fun. They'll make it work.

I'm in Cleveland, Ohio because the Dallas Mavericks off day and the one and only Dirk Nowitzki was willing to come on this stupid podcast if I came to Cleveland, Ohio, and we made it happen. Dirk. Thanks for having me, man. I did not anticipate this level of breaking in and of this podcast Gimmie earth. Give Luca Danni and Kristaps Porzingis are now on your team Gimmie earth first of all when did you know that this when you're the franchise player your dove franchise you played the Knicks on Wednesday Wednesday in New York. Everyone's bro ended up Luca and Kristaps broke up. When did, you know something was in the works? Now, you can say, yeah. No of only been made aware of a few days before that. And honestly, there is always around this time there's a thousand rumors as you know, it's your business. So honestly, I wasn't really worried about L thought there's no way in heck this is going to go going to happen. And I guess talks were heating up a little bit earlier in that afternoon. And I was like there's still no way. So I took my nap didn't worry about it thought. There's just no zero chance to make a big blockbuster deal like that. And then actually set my lawn for about four four fifteen and I missed the whole thing by the time. I woke up I had a million texts and the deal was basically done. So. Yeah, I wasn't shocked at it actually happened like that. And and obviously that trade like that of that magnitude went to went through and so's. Yeah. Was obviously surprised but at MSG at Nick at Nixon was already rumblings there was rumblings. But I didn't take him serious.

I think you'd have a chance to add up a young player with with, you know, franchise Calva player if you have a chance to add one, you you gotta do it. You know, his obviously he's coming off a series injury. But the kids twenty three years old, I think the sky's the limit. He's a hard worker, and hopefully, his knees great.

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle thinks Kristaps Porzingis brings another Dirk Nowitzki-Steve Nash type combo with Luka Doncic
"We do have Rick Carlisle's quotes regarding the porzingas blockbuster. He told one of three point three FM ESPN. Here's a quote, we obviously think porzingas is a great young talent similar in many ways to Dirk, this is a kind of a jerk and Nash type of situation only these guys are taller there. There are other good players in this deal. Hardaway juniors terrific shooter and a proven to guard in this league. Courtney Lee has been a guy that's been out of the rotation in New York because they've been going young and all of that kind of stuff, but he's a guy that can still play the game. Well, he's a good defender and shoots the ball. Well, and trae Burks resurrected his career Dennis Smith has had a really terrific year and a half in terms of growth. I mean, he tops it off last night with a triple double. Well, he's a tremendous young player and New York is such an exciting environment for a guy like him. It'll be a great situation for him. So coach Rick Carlisle chimes in and gives that sort of low expectation Durkan Dirk Nash combo so to help us break down. Go ahead, sir. I'm gonna say, unfortunately Smith junior being good is bad for the next gonna make them play better. And they wanna be worse fair fair point because it right now, it's all in Brazil,

"Dirk Nowitzki looks like shit. Not rushing him out of the league didn't rush. Joe Johnson out of the league. There's a reason why nobody wants to fuck with Carmelo Anthony. And it's not money. He's on a minimum salary. He got his big check. There's a reason. So I disagree with anybody who's saying, this is some sort of you know, conspiracy or they're just trying to get rid of this, dude. Why are they trying to get rid of Matt of the league? It's not like like saying, oh, we want to get rid of like on some Colin Kaepernick shit. There's just like yo fuck it. He's not good for teams.

"Top of your list of running back slash receivers into the guy with great hands. Never fumbled terrific blocker William Andrews, he was a lot of fun. We're getting a lot of suggestions here. I don't know how we got started on this. But mclovin think bell labianca, and the fact that he's not gonna play this year. But mclovin still wanted to bring up the great running backs. Who are also great receivers. Head people say Lenny more, light, L, Mitchell, Ronnie harmony, Eric Metcalf. Kevin Faulk, Dave Meggett priest Holmes Kimble. Anders also with the suggestion here. Reggie Bush also making the list there. Dave Meggett, remember? Yeah. You little Meggett. Yeah. Yeah. He was a versatile guy for the GM. I asked about this yesterday. And I'm curious if Kevin Durant ever gets his shot blocked because if you've seen him in person like it's even more impressive. When you see him in person of how tall how long he is. And where he shoots it from. So I thought maybe Kevin Durant Dirk Nowitzki would be the guys who don't get their shots blocked because Dirk sticks out that leg, and you can't really get you can't get there. I mean, even if you want to try to get there. He's got that leg out. These are dub jump shots blocked. Okay. Since twenty fourteen twenty fifteen these are the lowest percentage of jump shots blocked now. Number one on the list. I'm not surprised at his Dirk Nowitzki. Number two on the list. I could give you a fifty guesses in. You're not gonna get him. In fact, I could give you the first the three guys after Dirk Nowitzki JR Smith. Trevor REEs and Marko Bela Nellie. So I don't know. I don't know what we prove with that. It doesn't matter. How tall you are. Because Novitsky I would think would be up there. Kevin Durant is about twelve on that list. But you got Allan crab Jae Crowder, Patty mills, Nick young, Danny green. So I don't think it really matters. Here's the highest percent, which player, do you think has had his shot blocked? More jump shot blocked more since two thousand fourteen season minimum of fifteen hundred shots. This guy has had his shot blocked more than antibody Elfriede. Peyton are. There you go. Okay. But the second one is going to surprise you boogie cousins. Boogie cousins. I know Zach Randolph his third that doesn't surprise me. Kazak can't jump. Thaddeus? Young Jeff Teague Dennis Schreuder. Isaiah thomas. So those are most shot jump shots blocked in the NBA. I thought it was interesting. Did we come up with a poll question there McLennan? Yeah. We did. I can't remember what.

"This Bleacher report list of the greatest players of all the time. So I would not agree with this at all. They got him ranked Durant forty second of all time forty second. I would not agree with that sort of the words I'm with you shop that he's one of the best. Clearly, but I just don't have him top five. You got him top five greatest players ever of top ten. I thought you said top top-five. Did we not just have this argument? Mafia five now top ten all time. Oh, he's a top five. Now, the top ten all time. So they it at forty second. I wouldn't agree with that. I'd say is way higher than that. Now, you might be able to convince me of. You might be able to get him into that top ten strong enough argument like they have Dirk Nowitzki hundred I'd have I have him above Dirk Nowitzki. I think Dirks been incredible. But I'd have above that Karl Malone. He's better than Karl Malone. He's sixteen Malone's never even snatched. Kevin garnett. He is fifteen. You got him better than Garnett. Absolutely. I think he's a better player than garner. No scrub obviously, I mean, those guys are all time greats to for David Robinson better than him hands down thirteen best all time even Robinson who couldn't win a title before Dunkin. Eleven Kobe Bryant he's better than Kobe Bryant. No. He's not better than Kobe Kobe's eleven on this list. And I'll just this is just one list that Tanisha shock, you think. He's better than shack. Yes. Of course. Of course, he's better than check. That's like saying, I don't agree with that. I just think that shack was the most dominant beg, man. And Kevin Durant. If he tried to post up shack he'd be he'd snap him into. And first of all you cannot make the argument at all of any of these. Well, he couldn't do it. Without this guy. You can win without that guy. Because Durant could not win you only say he's right mob. Is right. You're constantly talking about he's on this great team. He couldn't do it in oak city when he had one guy. But when he's got five he's the greatest player that ever lived. And then you're saying all these other teams had to have they didn't have enough. Good players you keep saying, you're you're defeating your own argument. He's right. The bottom line is is that shack. He won no matter. What I don't care who you put around him. He no one stopped him. He did whatever he wanted. We got his ass kicked by one. We both agree on that. But he's actually one eight him up and spit them out. Is one of the best players of all time shack shag on how many rings? Did he get? He's got three on the back of kid. He's got three. Someone else you given all the credit that four title was all Jane, wait. Wait, I'm telling you man that three that he wanted a one and a two that was shack Larry Bird, you're gonna tell me that Kevin Durant better than Larry Bird. Yes. Yes. If Durant plays the parish. Kevin Durant could even dream of passing the ball like Larry Bird. Then have that conversation with me. I mean, he did everything right? He did everything better than everybody. He did everything. Like the way the game was invented to be played Larry Bird is the Pitta me of a basketball did everything everything. Rebound pass on the floor game winning shots, clutch, teammate championships and. Durant? Listen, I think Durant is a great scorer. That's it. What else is he so great at he don't pass the ball or no forever. Stop. He doesn't pass the ball ever guy. When does he passed the ball? When what game? Are you talking about? He plays with the warriors. And he's got guys. So we can facilitate every time he gets the ball. I've never seen a guy pass once in my life. Assist per game in the playoffs. Honestly, get on their come on. You're a basketball player. Do you think? He's better. Do you think he passes the ball? I don't think he's better than Larry Bird. I do think he has worked his way with the couple of titles that he's one in the two finals MVP into the top fifteen conversation for sure I'm okay with that problem with that. But he's not veteran. Larry bird. Larry, just here's a little tidbit for if you've been to Springfield. Of course, how long I spend in Larry Bird section. He's got like his own wing. He has his own wing at the hall of fame. Call me when Kevin Durant got half of the building in his name. If you if you go to Springfield of the hall of fame, he's been four hours in the Larry Bird section. I mean, honest to God is literally literally they might as well, call it the Larry Bird house or something that you know, it should be what do they call those things in the backyard little bird nast is that what they call it. Like a like a birdhouse birdhouse fan the birdhouse. Okay. Thanks. I'm not having this discussion with you Larry Bird. You know, honestly, I think. Larry Bird might be Jesus. I really do. I think that he was God's son. It was not Jesus was Larry Bird. And it was all just a ruse. They're pulling wool over our eyes at Sunday school because we never liked the Sunday school teacher to stop is he better than Jerry West. Are you asking me if the rents better than Jerry West? Yes. Jerry, West not even the greatest player as a shooting guard for his own franchise. Absolutely, jerry. Well, real Jerry West was only the logo because he played in the big market. He wasn't even the best player on the team for well, Elgin, Baylor was better than Jerry West. And we'll shave was better than Jerry West. We played with them in sixty nine seventy seventy seventy two twenty seven a game had six rebounds, six dives to it. Avs deals at a blocked shot every game. But he sucks too. I didn't say he sucks, basically. In Spanish what you're saying? Is that he sucks I never said that like you downplay everyone when you're trying to make a point your guy is the greatest and everyone else sucks. I mean, they literally don't even deserve to have a uniform is basically what you're saying to me. I mean, you really are painful as he better than LeBron James. No, okay. I this gets better. Every guy I go there. And you're not gonna even try to tell me it's better than magic John's now, he's not thanks. Thanks a lot. At least you got one. Right. He'd better than Tim Duncan. Yes.

I'm smashing my face right now into a mere trying to listen to you, tell me about how bad all these other players are in your guys the man, we're all very quickly if Kevin Durant plays.

If I was like always talking trash like that and that sort of like because you get competitive. Oh, but I would get competitive in the trash talking department. Yeah, yeah. But if it's your teammate, it's different because you, I mean, you're just having fun. I think it's good natured, whereas if you're gonna kill somebody else, then there might be a little truth in everybody kidding. So you know, Kevin Durant is kidding with CJ McCollum, but there's truth in there. Hey, you guys played like an eight seat, hey, you have no chance of winning champion. If you know you're not winning. Yeah, yeah. So print true. I think they have fun. I think his teammates have fun with Dirk Nowitzki the fact that they're calling him seven because LeBron's going to pass him on the all time scoring list. I mean, you're kidding with him, but you're still seventh on the all time scoring list of everybody who's ever played this game. You know, if you wanna give me grief like, hey. Mr. runner up for, you know, ten times in the sports EMMY. Okay. I'm all right with that. I'm runner up ten times to Bob Costas. He's telling him to go to YouTube. I. Awesome. Hey, you might want to go to YouTube and look at this dunk I had, and the fact that you have kids who are like Luca Danni chick was not born when you know, Dirk started playing. Probably born that year. Dennis Smith junior, they have no idea what Dirk did. They probably just look at the numbers and look at him. You know, barely getting up and down the floor. Yeah, point and with trash talk, I think it's who says it more than what said. Like when let's say we're down at the sports Emmys in Bob Costas that, hey, guys enjoy second place. You know, that's funny because we have a relationship up, but if someone we didn't know some big time announcer, let's say that Dan, you didn't know. We didn't know, hey, look at the guys that they patch enjoy second-place. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. We don't know you it. I think it'd be who says it not more than what's that. Yeah, if it's somebody that we don't like and then they say it that's different than if it's, you know, somebody that we have a relationship with. All right. So that's my darkness ski store. I don't know if I really held onto it, but every time I we talk about Dirk. I always say this orcas is in yes ball. You'll even some stuff out on this one because you were having a shooting contest at took quite a while. 'cause you and Avery weren't missing. And they were waiting to start their walk through and everyone's just kind of sitting there and the other half of the court. And then here comes of was it summer Sanders? Oh yeah. The inside stuff type stuff. So they got a camera crew and they're weight into a piece. And every time you every would hit a shot Dirk ago. Oh, come on, like not even under his over his come on, but I always think of die hard. When I think of Dirk because he's sort of got finish him off l. shoot the glass. Avery shoot gloss, shoot it off the gloss. Avery. Radio boy. And then I remember Avery Johnson hits a jumper from the corner and Nick Van Exo goes, start the bus. I think like like we're getting out. Let's go start the boss, you know, get the talk hairdo outta here and then I hit the shot as it's going in. And I said something like I said, something Nick Van Eck. So you know, not turn off the boss or something stupid, like I'm getting into back and forth with Nick Van. Exel, because Van Exel is dismissing me. I'm like, dude, come on. Nicot still, you know he could shoot, but you know, it's like, hey, where this is this is me against Avery. You want it didn't step up though. Did he? No, no, no, no. Because these guys all had something to lose. And then after I lose to Avery, I get into a shooting contest with Rolando Blackman. And he was the assistant coach and he lost. We were just shooting threes and he lost. So I'm like, all right there I came out with a little bit of dignity here because Blackman's one of the better shooters one of the great shooters have all time obviously..
