"There were more people in there and it got a little more chaotic. I think when it got a little control when we let every blogger in and that's when it got a little bit out of hand. But I mean, I understand some of the obviously the big time writers and your beat writers that need to be there every day be around and find good stories to write about, I think, yeah, that makes sense of their own for sure. Last thing before I get you out of here, I believe you're Hall of Fame eligible next year, right? 2023? Yes. Are you already, by the look on your face? I'm going to think of you, you are already thinking about it a little bit. Not to presume anything. I'm pretty sure you're going in on the first ballot. Do you already start thinking about who's presenting you and that kind of thing? I haven't thought that far, but as far as I remember, it has to be somebody who was in the Hall of Fame, right? Yes. Because I went for Steve and Jake kitt, I went, that was my first time going a couple of years ago to support obviously the two, the two point guards that helped me so much in my career. And it was fun just to seeing everything and seeing the ceremonies. So I had a great time. And of course, hopefully Steve and Jake kid will be there for me and I will call upon them. Maybe to put me in the hall if that happens. Hopefully old Nellie nells is still around by then. It's not leaving Maui much anymore, but he's my guy and he got me started back in the days and let me play my game. So old nails a lot. And so hopefully he'll be around when the time is right. So I guess that will be my crew if it ever gets to that point..

"If you look on paper, those two were meant for each other, the way they play and the game is played now KP is just the perfect 5 nowadays. With his length with the shooting abilities can pick and pop. It can pick and roll, can switch it up. Guard the guard the rim. So I'm not really sure what fully transpired there wasn't there every day. But it's just unfortunate. I think we had those guys set up to be successful for a long, long time, and just sometimes for whatever reason, just don't work out the way you had that planned. But I like KP got to know him a little bit there. He was traded to us in my last season. So obviously he didn't play there. He was still hurt, but got to spend a lot of time with him, see him on a daily basis, how hard he worked to get back. And so hopefully you can stay healthy. I mean, I'm a big fan of his game. Hopefully he could stay healthy enough to have a great rest of his career. I mean, I was a big fan. It feels like the Mavs are now in that position where they were often and with you where it's like you get that one transcendent star a Dirk Nowitzki and Luka Dončić and then the whole thing is all right. Where are we going to find that second guy? And that was the vision for porzingis was to be the costar. It didn't quite work out that way. And so now I feel like that's Cuban in the organization or back to that same place where they were with you a lot of the time where it was like, all right, how do we get the right guys around this so that we can see Luca on the biggest stage? Yeah, and obviously there's numerous ways whether that's through draft, whether that's through free agency, but your goal is always to improve your franchise and obviously help look out at the highest level..

"What are you not telling yourself? We can't actually do that unfortunately except in two commercials. I think it's a shoe commercial. So you can't go back and tell 18 year old Dirk what to expect or how to handle it. But you do have Luca and there were all these comparisons appropriate or not. And I know you said to Stein, I don't really consider myself a mentor just a friend and a sounding board, whatever. But that's kind of the opportunity, right? Like you can tell a young Luca what young Dirk may be needed to know. So is there anything to that? Are there some things that where it's like you are looking at him as the version of you then that needed to hear some things that maybe you did not know? Well, you know, I think I'm a big fan of going through stuff. I think you can't always say, hey, you need to do such and such. I think everybody kind of has to find their own way, make their own experiences and learn from maybe some mistakes. Of course, I want to be there for them and guide them through if there's anything, but I still think it needs to go through some of the tough times and that makes you better makes you in a more complete player and more complete person. So but if there's anything always I can help him with, I'm obviously in this corner. I want him to succeed. He's a great kid and a wonderful, wonderful player. So, you know, I'm always there for him if he needs me. And I'm not sure what I would tell myself if I was 1920 coming a league now. I think some of these experiences are made were valuable. I think I would have probably changed my die a little earlier. We just didn't know that much about diet and training early in my 20s. As you know, we still had hamburgers and chicken fingers pregame. There was McDonald's in the locker room when I first just started covering this in the lab. We had no idea about that stuff. So I think that's some of the stuff I would have done a little earlier, but other than that, I had to go through these all these playoff losses and experiences to come out at the end on top. I think that's something I've learned as a parent too, right? Like my daughter is 16 now and there's all these things where I'm always like trying to think of like these ways I could tell her and you can't keep your kids or a protege like Luca. You can't keep them from making the same mistakes or whatever you're right. Like everybody has to kind of find their own way and it's something you kind of realize as a parent or in your case as maybe a mentor ish figure. But in the end, it's frustrating, right? Because I want to steer my daughter clear of like no, no, don't do that. That's idiotic thing to do. It's impossible. It's impossible to avoid. I wondered about this over the years. When you came in, so we've got this kind of European revolution for a time there. Paul Gasol comes in from Spain. You come in and there was an Italian influx at one point. And you kind of think this is the beginning of a wave, right? The NBA has become international. We talk about the 92 Olympics in the Dream Team as having opened up the world to this sport and there wasn't like this massive pipeline behind you though..

"Wasn't always all happy times for you in Dallas, either what's the closest you ever came to whether it would have been to walk away or to ask for a trade. Was there ever a moment where you seriously considered it? Not really. I think the only reason would have been if we wouldn't have won the championship at the end of my career, I could have maybe tried somewhere else to get that ring. I think that would have been really the only reason for me to leave, but for me, Dallas was the place. The people supported me from the beginning, even when things weren't going right for me in my first year and they always gave me standing ratio. So I felt like the fan base, they wanted me to succeed and they mark would obviously it was always loyal to me and making me the franchise player and so I always felt like in my heart I wanted to pay that loyalty back and be of course in Dallas for the rest of my career and like I said the only reason would have been to chase a ring somewhere team up with some other players but other than that that or fortunately that never came that way because we got that championship in the 11 and you know it's definitely new we always felt like the players didn't have enough power at the beginning of my career and the owners had all the power can make all the moves and now it's almost shifting a little bit of too much. I think there should be like a happy medium but now the players forcing themselves out to me is not the way to go either. So I wish we could find a little happy medium there. I'm not sure how to get there. But yeah, I was old school for me, I don't want to sit here and judge these guys that are doing that. I think everybody has to know what's best for themselves for their career for their brand. Everybody has a brand now and what's best for their family. For me, it was staying in Dallas. It worked out great there and I've had my family there and I loved it and I grew into that community. So that's something that just worked for me, but of course I get it. It's not for everybody. When you watch the game now, you see what Giannis at essentially 7 feet is doing. What Joel embiid is doing, what jokic is doing, do you watch those guys and go like, yeah, I did that. I don't mean that you did what they're doing, but like you paved the way. You were the 7 footer who stepped out and hit threes and one legged shots and put the ball on the deck and everything else and changed the way we view 7 footers. So do you see those are a little pride in where this is gone? Of course, it's great to see these guys come over and do all that come from Europe or forever from Africa. And have an impact on this league and play the way they play. It's fun to see. I think it just shows the evolution of basketball of the league the last 20, 25 years..

"Mister Nash is in COVID protocols as we tape this. This will publish on Friday, but it's Tuesday, I'll let the listeners know as we're recording this, you're going to protocols last night. I didn't know that. No. Because I almost went to this game, so he coached it last night. No, pregame. He sat down, he's kind of coughing and sounding not so great at whatever and did his whole pre game media and the next thing you know he was tested into protocols. So that was that. I think Jacques von coached lesson. I didn't know that. Because last night we had an event with the book, and then we were on to dinner, so I didn't even see that. Yeah. I'll take some now. Joe was thinking, if you had any plans to see him while you were here briefly, I guess that would be out the window. Last night would have been the time to go, but no, no, I didn't. I'm not going to end up seeing him. How often do you check in with him? He's had the weirdest start to a coaching career. Obviously he came in, you got a star stock team and everything else, and then another star, but now that star's gone and it's a different star, hardened Simmons, whatever Kyrie plays only have to get. It's nuts. How's he holding up? Are you are you counseling him long distance? You know, honestly, I'll check on him once in a while. I don't want to bother him too much. I know he's there's a lot on his plate. There is a lot on his plate, leading, leading that ship. So I check in occasionally on him every couple of weeks, say, hey, how's it going? How are you feeling? And then I don't want to bother him with basketball questions and stuff. He needs to talk about anyways every day and give a press conference. So I want to check on him. How's he doing? How's life? How are the kids? And I'm sure when we get together at some point, maybe after the season, we'll dive a little bit further into what's happening, how was the season? But I don't really want to pile on and start asking how is Katie? How's this health when is it coming back? That's not me and I don't want to bother him, but I'm sure it's a lot. In the New York market, of course, and then the high expectations, the pressure, and then all the injuries that came, I still think if Kyrie and harden don't get hurt last year to me, they should have won the championship. So it was disappointing..

"So there were some cold times. I would describe them, but other get the end of the day. There's mutual respect there for each other's careers. And what they did for the sport and for their team. So I think these cold times or frosty times are behind us and I'm happy for them. What he's been able to accomplish and now what he's doing after his career with TV and obviously part owner now of the jazz and so he's doing big things and I'm happy for him. And he grudges from your MBA career. Anybody who wrote into you to be like not turn around walking the other way or you know me, I'm super easygoing. There is a few guys that are a little sensitive. They thought that I got them traded. Which of course is not really the case. It's a fine line of being a franchise player and sometimes being involved on the business side or knowing about trade rumors and stuff like that. But other than that, I don't have any grudges against our teammates or exponents, not at all. I usually got to I got to the gym. I try to help my team win and I was all about business and then I went home to my family or do my own thing. So I was I was never really getting too involved with opponents. I figured not, but I figured I'd ask. And so the NBA 75 ceremony itself was rather amazing. I can't remember how many was it not 60 40, 50, whatever, that of you that were actually there. And it wasn't just the ceremony. There were some time where you guys were, I think, gathered up for some photo opportunities and everything else. I think the Cavs practice court. What was that like were there guys that you set out? Did you when you arrived the weekend? Were there guys that you're like, I need to meet this guy, 'cause I had met him before or just people you wanted to rub elbows with for the first time. Tell me, who were the big ones for you? Well, I got to say that was the most special moment of that weekend. I was a little late. And then I came in on the cast practice and I walked in and almost everybody was there already. And just seeing everybody and that was, I think, the most special moment for me just the wow effect, like I'm a part of this group right here. Look around, this is fantastic. So I think that was the most special moment of the whole weekend walking on the cast practice facility that was unbelievable. Really shared some great lasso with everybody to talk to schacht, doctor Charles Barkley, of course, who I love. Got to meet bob Pettit for the first time. That was super cool. Talk to Kareem a little bit of had a photo shoot for the whole 75 thing a few months earlier and there was not one guy talked to Kevin McHale a bunch and the admiral, of course, big fan. So I don't know. It was just super cool to be in that room and being part of the crew. And I missed a couple. I wish timid Duncan was there, you know, Carl Malone or my boy Steve Nash, I missed a couple of the guys that are shared with some great battles with, but it's still amazing the guys that guys that were there..

"I think that was a strangest time in retirement so far. And I missed it, of course, there. But other than that, I got to say, I've adjusted really well. I'm staying busy. I'm doing all this stuff. And I'm enjoying a lot of time with the family. And what we are traveling a lot. So I got to say, I'm in a really good place, and I'm enjoying life. Picturing you, that's all wonderful. I'm picturing you playing doubles tennis, like one, you don't have to cover as much ground, so the foot and ankle, not as much of an issue. Sure. Also, at your side, you don't have to move at all probably play. You could just like reach out and cover most of the court without actually moving. Yeah, and the good thing is I told the guys we play with, you can not drop shot against me because I can never get there anymore, so you have to play a long ball to me and that way I can have a good workout my opponent's going to have fun because if they drop shop me there is just no chance I'll get there at this point in my life. But no, I enjoy tanning. You know tennis was my first sport. And all my kids are playing now because first of all, it's great for hand eye coordination. It's great for footwork and it's a sport. You can play for.

"And so I'm sure in the 90s did a lot of other players that were right there or the Knicks or whoever with Ewing and so I can not fault somebody's great players for not winning a championship. But on the other hand, I did want the same thing. I wanted to win one for former career as well. And like you said, it does add another level to your career. So I definitely wanted that on my resume. So yeah, I think we put a little bit of too much emphasis of winning it, but at the end of the day, that's what we all play for to be the best to compete against the best and get to the top of the mountain. So I'm a little bit of torn. I'm a little bit torn. I think, of course, it's huge to win a championship, but I can't fault my guys that played so hard and tried, but didn't end up getting over the top. During the peak of your career, well, it's actually starting from the moment you entered the league Dirk, and then through all those peak years, that was a time when the power forward was like the glamour position in this league. And it was stuck. So you come in, chrome alone, obviously, still kicking people, kicking people's asses. Rasheed Wallace, Chris Webber, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Jermaine O'Neal. I mean, I could go on describe the nightly gauntlet and a lot of those guys were in the Western Conference, too. For most of their careers, how do you describe the nightly gotten, especially for you when you were coming in as like the skinny teenager from Germany just trying to kind of find your way? Yeah, it was amazing. Every night you had, you had a challenge on my position and the problem really for me was on the other side of the floor and the defensive side. So I had to find a way to stay efficient enough to stay on the floor. I can still, you know, I got good at fronting these guys when they were posting me because I was obviously my upper body. It wasn't quite ready yet to hold these guys off, so I worked on techniques to front a lot and when they lob the ball over there comes Sean Bradley. So I had to work really hard on that end. In the offensive end, things were starting to click with Steve. And Mike, but yeah, the power for it position was loaded and later with Zach Randolph and so many rasheed Wallace and Portland. There were so many, so many great players. And it was fun to compete against the best every night. So I think you raise your level if you know you have to bring it every night and I think that helped my consistency over the years and because you can take a night off. They're all tough. Those guys were all stars and they all brought something different to the table. Who is the guy though when it's like three hours to game time where you wake up for me after your nap and you're like, oh shit man, I gotta deal with this guy. Like who's the guy who made you stress out the most?.

"That's how good he writes it. And so I don't know. It was just I was emotional. It was I just had retired and it just hit the spot. So I was actually on a plane going somewhere. And I had some tears coming in in my eyes. That was for me the most emotional part reading some of the fan reactions and just my last game and that whole the whole spectacle of I'll never forget. So that would actually, for me, that was way more emotional than any other parts of my family story or winning the championship and all that. I think the last game, the last home game, the ceremony they put on for me, that was unbelievable. You were always great with the media during your career. But it was probably a certain there were lines obviously. You weren't giving everything away. And so there's a lot in this book. It seems like where you were ready to open up more about life and process and everything along the way. Do you think it was that he hit you with the right time to be a little bit more forthcoming, or maybe also knowing, did you know when you guys first started on this? Because he worked on this for like 7 years. Did you know like, okay, by the time this comes out, I'll probably I'll be retired. So it won't, I don't have to worry about saying things now that might ruffle feathers in the present while I'm still playing. Were you more open because of the time and also you've also had the championship in hand at that point? I think all of that plays a factor, I think I was not great at the media when I first started. I think I was shy. It was in my language. I didn't want to say the wrong thing so then I kept my answers really short. Most of the time, I didn't even want to do interviews..

I'm great, great to see you. Welcome to New York. We get the treat of occasional screaming and sirens and things in the background here. So that's part of it. It's New York City. We got to have the atmosphere built into it. We're not videoing this folks because we're in person at the offices of WWE Norton to publisher for this book that we'll discuss. So you can't see this folks. But I need you to know that Dirk Nowitzki is holding the microphone, leaning back much as he did through two decades of press conferences. And I think that's important to note. That is my style. That is my style. That's what I do, yes. I don't want to dwell on this too long, but when did you realize that was that conscious, did you realize that those of us who are watching you every night are starting to do like, you know, Dirk's got this microphone thing. He doesn't do this like other people. I'm not sure how that happened, but mostly the press comes after games. I was tired. I just wanted to lay back and chill and sit down and have a nice press conference with you guys and not be leaned forward a bit too tight and I just want her to be a family type atmosphere and hopefully hopefully that what it was..

"Really like them. I think it's clear the first 5 minutes is monologue. I really like them, but I don't know that I would do those things. And the thing is, is none of that shit really matters. It's sexy, it gets the attention the next day. Everybody's in a hurry to kind of do some of these things. But none of that stuff really matters. And I'm going to make a point here. When I talk college football over the years, I probably see more forgiving for certain programs in certain coaches than others would. Because my grade or my gauge of who you are as a program in this coach is, are you in the mix to plan a conference championship? And does that mean that you're in the mix then to be in the playoffs and that means if you're sort of flirting with that playoff mix and maybe not even get in or when your coverage championship, if you're one of those programs, it feels like they're flirting with it for about ten weeks of the season. That's really the best that you can do unless you have the standard of say in Alabama or Clemson or maybe even now Georgia. But George is a good example because Georgia plays international championship, loses an epic game to tua, you know, they're hanging around, but they still got Bama in the way, but I'm looking at going, how are you guys knocking this program? Like they're right there, talent wise. And I know people didn't like Kirby until he won a national championship, or at least they were frustrated by him until he won it, but I'm thinking this is all you can really ask for. They are in the mix and this is very real. This is a real thing. It's not the flashy things. This is real. And this matters. And it might work out for him. It might not. But the fact that they're in this group of teams is really what you're hoping to do when you're building a program. And that's what's important. The real stuff. Memphis has a real guy. I don't know how long that list is. I usually would argue that it's like 6 or 7 players that could absolutely change the course of your franchise. That list is rarely ten players long. I think it's usually a lot shorter than that. But we'll flirt with different things, but even if you look at the timeline of, say, a Trae Young. Trae Young comes in, okay, is it going to be good? Is it going to be a disaster? It was way too negative for him or early on. Remember the summer league and all that kind of stuff. And then you can see how talented he is. It's like, okay, scoring. But then last year it felt real because they beat the sixers. They play in the Eastern Conference Finals. And now you're starting to feel like if you're a hawks fan, you have something to build on. Same thing happened with Giannis. Giannis took a little while, and it was like, okay, there's some exciting plays and some cool videos that break out, but how good of a basketball player, is he? And then he transitions into holy shit. I think we really have something here. And Milwaukee, despite their frustrations and the playoff exit, certainly the one against Miami a couple years ago, you at least had a building block, somebody that changes who you are as a franchise, the culture, all these things that we could throw around a lot, but you know what, like culture is actually important. It's just that people pretend that they can just invent it out of thin air. So whatever the sexy things that you hear about job, that you're going to hear. You're going to hear a ton of it. And he deserves all of those things. But the way I would look at it is saying, Memphis is real. They have one of these franchise changing players. And honestly, that's way more important than some of the sexy headlines where I think it'd be really aggressive statements about ja and is sexy as those all may be. They're not nearly as important as now looking at Memphis is a real team, a team you have to take serious in the playoffs. A player like jaw that can close out maybe anybody with his offensive attacking style, a deep teen that seems to love playing with each other and it really feels like a team that, you know, I'm always a little cautious about young teams of the playoff, the history there isn't great, but it may feel like they jumped the line here a little bit. And that very well could be the case with whatever happens with Phoenix. If Golden State doesn't have enough size, if draymond doesn't come back and look as good as he did, the first half of the season considering all the games he's missed, all the east teams that keep changing my mind about, not wanting to give up on some and completely dismissing others. The most important part of the Memphis conversation is that they are real. They need to be taken that way, even though that's nearly as not as much fun as some of the other things you're going to hear this week. Dirk Nowitzki joins us. Book is the great hibiscus basketball meeting a life by Thomas bletcher. So let's do this, man. Let's go back where this book also goes back to the mid 90s. You're a teenager. Germany, you're 7 feet tall. You're working out with holder. And you're trying to figure out this basketball thing. Did you have any idea? Did you know what were those years like prior to the hoop summit and then ultimately the draft? Like, when you're going, wait, am I actually this good? I mean, there was a strange time meeting holder and I wasn't quite, I'm German, so I think by nature we are a little more negative and we have doubts and so I wasn't sure whether it was good enough and even the play in the NBA let alone make it so but you know holger was big in my life there when I met him when I was 15, 16. He taught me how to play how to shoot how to move and he was sort of my mentor that I needed at the time but get through school and get to the next level and he showed me how to work hard and so you know a couple of weeks ago at the Jersey retirement when and when I said to him that how much he meant to me without him I probably would have not made it to the stage. I really meant that he would see it was vital in my life and my career and I met him at a great time where the teenager years are really tough as you know you have all these things in your mind and you want to do and gets you off track and so he was there and made sure that I was always focused and got to live my dream. So I do OM.

"dirk nowitzki" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo

"Where else do you start today except for one of the most electric guards in the NBA, a huge knife for him, and that's markelle fultz returning the Orlando Magic the first time over a year. We will ask to read about that, maybe some other time this week. Now, we have to start with John morant, who is now become appointment viewing. And it's awesome to see this. It's awesome to see a play out nationally where somebody that I think all of us just enjoy so much. He goes for 52 last night against the spurs. A career high for him, first ever 50 point game in Memphis history. That's after he said his own career high. This past weekend against the bulls with 46. So he's on an absolute tear. Last night's game, he had 13 straight in the fourth quarter. And it was actually still kind of a game with San Antonio. I don't think he missed a shot in the fourth quarter on top everything else. He hit a bunch of threes. He had a dunk on jacopo where people were afraid pearl was going to retire after the fact. And by the way, a person's not terrible. It was one of those vicious jaw dunks where there's another level that he gets to. I don't know how many of you remember the Tom chambers dunk over Mark Jackson. It was basically the dunk for not only that season, but also the video game because they basically were like, there was this move you could play in the game, or if you took off with Tom chambers, you would just go up higher than everybody else, which seems a little ridiculous because Jordan's playing it's time to. And the reason he went up so high on that is because he Mark Jackson helped kind of lift him up beyond what a guy would normally do. Any human would do. And ja has more moments right now that don't seem human than maybe anybody in the league. I don't know. I don't know who keeps track of the non human movements, but that's what we have with y'all. His attacking is relentless. I don't think anybody splits a double team better than he does. You think you have him just walled off, you think that there's no way he can get through and then he gets through you. You think that he's done on his drive and the angle is cut off and he's going to have to turn a kick it back out to somebody else that he takes kind of this Euro ginobili step and then gets the ball up and around and flips it from a different angle that you weren't expecting and it happens all the time. Any plays with this viciousness too, which I love because we want all of our stars to have confidence, right? We want them to have a little bit of attitude. Maybe a lot of attitude, but we don't want so much confidence and so much attitude that it detracts from the actual game and in those winning moments. And he appears to have the perfect combination of all these elements that you want in the personality of a superstar. Very early in the season when they started putting this together and going on a roll and you started to see this big statistical jump from jaw. I mean, here's just one example PR isn't always the best, but it's really telling for perimeter players. His PR is jumped from like, hey you know it's pretty good as jaw. Like mid teens 16, 17. To 25, it's jumped like ten points. 8 or 9, ten points depending on how you track the last few years. But there are also was a joy that this team had, where not only did they feel connected, which is very important in basketball, I use it when I'm super complimentary a basketball teams they're connected. They know everybody's role. Everybody seems to be kind of happy in the role. And this is a Memphis team that's deep to and has a lot of pieces, but there's a joy and attitude that they have, whether it was talking shit to LeBron James is saying, hey, we're not afraid of you anymore, going into New York City and being like, whatever. You guys want to mess with us, go ahead because we think we're that good. And they're knocking on some doors here. Now, when the MVP race comes through a jaw is going to now having guys like me, you know, or some that are still on television, you'll be saying jaws, the clear MVP, and what's the rule we hate more than anything else is that when somebody makes these arguments and says it's not even close. The whole point of this MVP race this season. As I've said numerous times is that it is actually really close. But it's not to be dismissive of jaw. It's just that the next, he's the next guy up for that now becomes unanimous dude. And there is something to be said of having popular opinion and certainly the people on television that haven't be feet votes. It's almost sometimes where people like kind of the mob mentality can kind of shift in a certain direction. So to have that momentum is actually important for you potentially winning an MVP. But if we look over the timeline Durant had a stretch, Steph had a stretch, yo, it just had a stretch where he's still very much in this thing and B then kind of took over for jokic or it felt like it was the two of them and B is still very much in it as well and then Derozan was the most recent guy in just the last week plus a little bit before the all star break a little bit after it where it's like now Derozan's actually the guy now. And maybe he is and maybe he gets votes, but if you were going to look at some of the jaw stuff, you could say, well, he's missed 14 games, but he's played more games than embiid. He's going to play more games than Durant. I think Steph's kind of out of the conversation at this point, Giannis gets criminally overlooked even though his numbers are basically identical to what he's done in previous years and he's going to have a career high in wind shares and PER. And by the way, Giannis is also hitting his free throws again. So I think jaws in this conversation, but you know, when you can look at some of the standing stuff, you'll be like, well, what if Chicago's a one seat at Rosen? Well, Memphis has a better record right now than Philadelphia in Chicago, which is my point of really saying have an open mind about all of this stuff. Because as somebody that did do this for a long time and knows what it's like to sit in those pre show meetings and know that the sexiness that next morning be like, hey, what do you want to say about John? And you're like, well, you know, this is where I always sucked at it, and I'd go, he's in the MVP conversation. I think Memphis is really good. And I fucking love John Moran. What do you want me to say? It's like, well, could you say he's definitely the MVP? I'd be like, well, no, I don't really believe that. We still have ways to go here. We got like 20 games. Do you want to say Memphis is going to win the title? No, I don't. I'm not going to say they're incapable, but that would seem really dismissive of maybe the deepest top of contenders we've had in a really long time. Okay, do you want to say that jaws may be better than any other point guard? No. I mean, he might be, but I still think I'm probably going to take Steph. All right, would you say that you would take job to start your team over anyone else right now? I don't know that I would do that either. I really like them. I think it's clear the first 5 minutes is monologue. I really like them, but I don't know that I would do those things. And the thing is, is none of that shit really matters. It's sexy, it.

"That's a stupid nonsense. But that's also and I took it personally. That's what they do. 100%. Let's get to, well, we would be remiss about Dirk Nowitzki, getting his number retired by the Mavs, and they also unveiled the Dirk Nowitzki statue. Mark Cuban, pretty funny. Actually, he unveiled a replica of it. Just to scale model of it, somebody would see what it's going to look like. And then said that due to funding concerns, that's actually what the statute that's full size for the statute. But of course, it's his one legged fade away. The only thing I'm not sure on is they've got to like show that the ball is in action and he's shooting it. The three basketball stacked on top of each other. I don't know about that part. I kind of wish they had just left that out. Yeah, leave the ball on his hand. Just shooting this. And then we'll all just assume at one end and we're good. Right. You know what he was doing? Like, come on. It's also the silhouette is on the court. We know what's happening. It's a baseline, one legged fall away. Made a billion times. And, you know, I mean, I loved the just all the love he got yesterday. It was one of my favorite players for the duration of his career, just a guy who came in and people were kind of like, yeah, this guy's okay, but is he really that good? Is he gonna be that good and just year over year one? I mean, I'll never forget that team beating. The heat team. Yeah, I mean, big, big part of them getting there and stuff. And that too never really didn't let that remember they lost to those we believe warriors that that team when they were like the one seed and looked like they were going to make the finals. He didn't let that throw him or anything, just a great creator and did it all in one place. I mean, that's still to me. That's worth seeing less and less like that. We've talked about it before Kobe and then Dirk and who knows who the next guy might be. The next guy, honestly, and I think he's going to get his Jersey retired by the team and people are going to be like, wait, what? You don't us has them. I think he's going to be there forever. We're going to see, yeah. Do this full run. Just the way these guys change teams. Maybe staff probably. It looks like there's still something to me that's stuff is going to be one of those guys that ends up playing in Charlotte at the end of his career in front of the home fans for season or two. But yeah, let's see how that comes together, but yeah, very few and far between that we see this anymore. Get ready for angry warriors fans coming after you now. Yeah, I'm sure. But I mean, what are they owed? Anything. Come on, no. 20, I wrote, this is promised, I'm not making this up. I wrote a long, long time ago for a site that no longer exists and quite frankly, probably never should have existed. In the first place. But that's a whole other story for another day. I wrote that it doesn't end well. And I basically the whole premise of it was these legends go out sad..

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.

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.
