"Then you know the whole time. I kept going the every practice that i could. Bill burqa at the time before he left the jazz and joining the lakers in the eighties. He had a scouting service for colleges called burke of us and were they hire outside scouts. And anytime. I had a chance. I would go with bill. He sorted taught me the ins and outs of scouting what they were looking for both from a exit. Oh stamp point and from player personnel standpoint. And so i just kept trying to as much as i could on the basketball side while i was working on the business side and in nineteen eighty seven frank. Layden was the coach and general manager team. And he said you know. I know you've always wanted to get the basketball. And i think i'm gonna hire a video guy and he said you know. I could hire a coach with more experience. But you know you you've showed a lot of interest in our give you a crack at it and so i got into that next thing. I was made an assistant coach and You know mainly concentrating on scouting the upcoming teams in the opponents and still doing video work. That's kind of how i got into basketball.

Which i did and five years and probably looking back it was. It was great experience but it wasn't the jazz that had been my life and in in all of that and so it was quite a difference.

The washington wizards messiah jury was with us as a scout. Who's the president of toronto. Jeff weltman was the other assistant. Gm who's at orlando. You know besides kiki so you know.

Now they do have major league soccer now but at the time you know..

"Treated everybody fairly and expected the best of of everybody, no matter who they were well I if the work ethic was so perfect for him to be a Chicago bull in a city that really has always prided itself on blue collar and working hard, but what was it about the jazz? That truly was a marriage made in heaven I mean. They were Jerry was meant to be with that organization and to spend as long as he did. There is just unheard of today. Yeah Yeah. You're totally right and You know his relationship with Frank Layden. Was was what brought him there and the whole organization. Top down from you know the ownership to the ushers that worked at the arena to everybody in between They all are very conservative style. They're not flashy as you know. They didn't stick the limelight, which my dad perfectly, and they just had a hard working mentality to do the right thing. You know to be a good steward of the organization, and that encompassed him perfectly. So I think that's why he was able to last so long. That that attitude and coaching style sort of like a lost art in basketball now because we see all these super teams and player on teams and all the best teams in the NBA, it seems as if the players are the ones. That are running the show. The nineties when it was more of the coaches ahead had full control of the locker room and of the attitudes and everything. Yeah I mean that's that's it and not show. That's why I don't. I haven't watched an NBA game in years since my dad coach, because of that and shame because I love basketball, and but I can't stand to watch These guys that are money hungry. They want to start 'em. They also want to bring in their political views, which is just nasty mean. and then the coach. How is he supposed to real in those guys who make? You know millions upon millions of dollars, and they can't Popovich just probably the only one right now that I know that that can do that but he's an old, even good. He also and You know had the same kind of philosophy of my dad, but Yeah, it's a shame, but the players are running the asylum in on all these teams now and then you know I. Don't know what the purpose of coaches to be honest when they're calling plays and you know telling who to go in and you know. I don't know if it's sad. I can only imagine the stories that we would hear. This past week we have read a lot and we. We've been hearing a lot of remembrances of your dad and I. It's just so difficult that you're not able to have a memorial. For, so many of the people that he touched between Chicago. And and Utah and down state in Southern, Illinois give us an idea of some of the people that you've heard from and stories that you did not know that they told you. Oh my gosh.

"Dot in the age of seventy eight just a great coach for the the Utah Jazz also coach the Chicago Bulls I think people forget Jonathan when they think about Jerry Sloan it think about of course the Stockton and Malone teams that got to the finals in back to back years and lost to Michael Jordan but I mean Jerry Sloan was also on a tremendous player for the Chicago Bulls and he was probably like the best known bulls player before the team drafted Michael Jordan that's all good Jerry Sloan what's no question about it you think about Sloan and think about all of the all time great pulls a great players soul as part of that but also the coaching right think about Greg Popovich Gregg Popovich probably will be the last of the lineage of old school coaches but before that was Jerry Sloan look at how many users with the Utah Jazz before Frank Layden you had a guy like Sloan that was there it was old school and all school in this regard so Popovich would say that he was coaching Tim Duncan like your coach that's eleven to twelve god the bench some of the same way and so you don't get that kind of coach anymore where the star and the bench guy is coach the same usually the bench guys gonna be reading a little bit harder but unless I just think that we Kerry slowly passed away but it really tells you a lot about you know how great he was as a coach but the old school coaching you're stuck doing that anymore in the NBA as much yeah of all the stories I read of Jerry Sloan in the last twenty four hours or so all the tweets that was the thing that stood out to me the most and in the article on ESPN dot com there's a fantastic quote that I think it just shows exactly what you're talking about it it's talking about how he was asked if you need to be patient with nineteen year old CJ miles and he basically said I don't care how old he is we can't put him in diapers one night and a jockstrap the next night but we got we got a treat all these guys like it Dalton he was hard on him and everybody reflected in it it didn't matter if you were honest team if you're playing against ME expected the best out of everyone and he was full of grit and I think those are the guys who stick with you and and it's evident in everyone who is remembering him that it was great but in the way where he was trying to push people and he was the way in the way that he wanted the best out of people and it's it's incredible to read just some of these memories and the recounts of practices and games from Jerry Sloan I mean it's it's it's great to read George Jerry Sloan was inducted into the hall of fame in two thousand nine he won twelve hundred plus games as a coach in twenty six seasons ninety eight playoff wins as a coach again great career in Chicago as a player four times was on the NBA all defensive team and he was very interesting to cover as R. Ian Fitzsimmons said last night I'm Freddie and Fitzsimmons Kobe goes for eighty one and coach Sloan sits down with us for our pregame interview and I tell him it's a you know Kobe when for eighty one NEO's what an hour out like Hey coach can make it up so what we we put the headsets on and I said go for for you to do it you know the game tonight your reaction to Kobe Bryant going for eighty one eighty one how can a team all of which was approved because of that he was sniffing thirty was gonna believe it I start laughing right Jerry Sloan dead panned like now you drive the lane and you're sniffing thirty against norm van Lier and I on the Chicago Bulls now is where number four you were going to get hurt he was not joking your band leader someone that Johnson and I got to know really well after his playing days in Chicago and the great story about those two van Leer and Sloane is that when van Lier played for Cincinnati in Sloan was on the bulls they got into a really bad fist fight like they hate each other and then bam here comes to Chicago they become best friends and they're like you know they're just rough and tumble and that's that's how the game was played any Jerry Sloan from everything I remember was just a no nonsense guy it was like Jonathan he was Popovich before Popovich yes he was the guy that if you ask them a dumb question he was sterile hole three until you walked away but at the same time I mean he was a brilliant basketball mind players loved him and again one of the toughest guys that people say you've ever been around in the NBA is there is no question about that I I I think about the the last dance because at the end the last dance it was focused on the bulls defeating the jazz twice of for the opportunity to win the NBA championship the bulls one it's engine five and six and I think about Jerry Sloan when those last games at the bulls and jazz playing you look at the box score and saw that it was sold lopsided the bulls had beaten them to jazz some like eighty or ninety to fifty nine or sixty and cherry students all the points we had this all we had was also always scored like he was very widely he knew exactly what's going on there are some things we ask questions where you knew the answer to them you know what to do but he he had a very dry sense of humor but you can never get away from the toughness and the reason why we're even doing the segment talking about how it's unnerving here is because I would say in twenty twenty that coaching is different because it's more like this in Kabul so listen college there in on college basketball in particular it's like I'm gonna teach you how to be able to run the certain plays offense and defensive in the NBA coaches are saying okay well this is what I want to run what do you think is best how do you think we should run this that's the difference between college and pros alternately the proconsul has autonomy but it's it's really enhance the players it's a players league in college it can't be over coached at times but you're also still teaching on that level and I just thought the jury Jerry Sloan was someone that was always great to be able to teach put the game in his hands but also gave freedom offensively for Malone and Stockton do what they do best because they were the greatest when it comes to the pick and roll play it's interesting to have that dynamic like you said B. and strict but also giving your players some freedom and you guys touched on at the beginning of this conversation with pop maybe being the last of that you know hardcore gritty old school coaching in the NBA and it just makes me sit here and wonder like man I I wonder how a coach would be able to do that now like if there was another pop that came along he still embrace you know that kind of coaching with that flight Jeff do you think in twenty twenty twenty twenty one NBA with lebron James on your roster like ours are you going to take kindly to a coach like that or is that is does that end when pot leaves I think what matters is it's a great question Alyssa what matters is how does the star player responded that coaching I think the difference is like I don't want to cast this this this huge net and say every NBA players to sensitive now John can I talk about this a lot of there's a lot of hurt feelings in the NBA nowadays you know more so than there used to be in the eighties and nineties not to sound holding get off my lawn is or anything but you know I mean when when you got superstar players you know running burner Twitter accounts because social media yeah they're so unhappy that you know March from you know Connecticut is is talking about him on Twitter but they have to fire back like that really didn't happen back in the day so the NBA is about star players it's a star driven league just like it was in the eighties and the nineties the difference is the stars aren't as spread out as they were back then when it was a star in every different market well like a coach like that I think could be successful Jonathan if they have the right star players on the roster star players that can handle that but if you put some of these other guys sensitive guys you know media's writing all these bad stories about me when there's been like one bad store read about you in your whole life you know those type of guys I think with that kind of hard charging no nonsense head coach I don't think that experiment would work well it's a longer deeper conversation but I'll just sum it up this way when you have come up through an aide to culture in which and although the best of the best are playing on the same team were you as an actor you can say I don't play for this team because they don't look bigger they're going to win I'm gonna go to this team because they look like they're going to win when you're in a U. culture and it's not for everybody not saying that I'm not painting a broad brush I'm just saying that there is some that will look at this and say well my coach an AAU circuit did not write me this badly they never said I did anything wrong the crowd loved me my teammates love me so what's your disconnect clearly you have the problem when actually it's someone the silence to try to get you to be better and some can't understand that kind of coaching it's not even tough love as much of this direction and if you believe in the direction you believe that you want to get better then you'll listen it's kind of like anything else there's a speech that you sit through for an hour but there's something in that speech that will stand out to you maybe ten seconds maybe five minutes point is though is that something you can take out of it their son a please I won't take anything out of the site I know what I'm doing I have I have my set of skills I'm good but I just think that there are some that will look at their background and say I'm good unless like I don't need some old school guy tell me what to do because I I know that I'm a I'm a one percenter I'm a great athlete and you know I I think that there's some coaches that can't be able get to some athletes but that actually has to be willing to listen it's an interesting conversation and interesting point you raise there because when you were saying that my thought immediately went to some of the things that we see with college sports a lot of these high school kids who come and highly ranked highly touted highly recruited they may not have ever lost a game in their life they never may have never ever felt what it is to not be the best person on the field for the past athlete on the court and and it sort of reminds me of that transition in a way if you don't have a coach who is going to be able to say to that player okay you went from being the best on the field and maybe in your whole district in high school football team now middle of password you're going to do about it and some guys aren't able to take that next step some guys are and it's sort of the same thing then when you go from college to the pros one of the things that stood out to me about Joe burrow throughout the NFL was a conversation he had with Peyton manning and Payton told him Hey look like you just won a national championship you played in the SEC you were on top of the world there's a reason why the Cincinnati Bengals are about to pick you they're not looking too good you're not going to go do what you did at LSU last year next year in your first year in the NFL so it's an interesting point there as far as coaches you know being that strong suit being that person who can really give you that direction because a lot of these guys you know have an experienced things like this before and it's it's an interesting concept for someone like me who never even came close to playing college or professional athletics to be like well what I wanted guys who writes mirror what a guy who just kind of like lets me do whatever and obviously you know your your gut reaction is to say you know let's do whatever but you look at the guys like Jerry Sloan and Gregg Popovich and they breed success so it's like you can't you can't argue with that Jeff some young people also at the first sign of trouble turn and run right I mean we see a lot of high school athletes transferring I don't I don't agree.

"Friday at the age of seventy eighty spent twenty three seasons coaching the jazz won over twelve hundred games in his career fourth highest total in league history remembering Jerry Sloan or while many will connect hall of fame basketball coach Jerry Sloan with the Utah Jazz the hall of fame coach always considered himself a former first applied that same work ethic throughout his career after winning two division two titles at the university of Evansville the Baltimore bullets selected him fourth overall in the nineteen sixty five draft during the expansion team in Chicago in nineteen sixty six Sloan became a guard known for tenacious defense this would more than ten thousand points with the bulls in ten seasons what about this it is for the most aggressive rebounding guards in the NBA he retired in nineteen seventy six and a few months later he returned to Evansville as the head coach but resigned after five days citing personal reasons eight months later the team's plane crashed after take off killing all aboard in nineteen seventy nine he earned his first head coaching job taking over the bulls Sloan coached Chicago to the plants in his second season but was dismissed after a slow start in his third year in nineteen eighty five he headed west to Utah as Frank Layden assistant four years later he took over mid season as head coach one would produce sixteen straight winning seasons fifteen straight playoff appearances and helped make the combination of Karl Malone and John Stockton into one of the NBA's most potent scoring two of the jazz won the Western Conference titles in nineteen ninety seven and nineteen ninety eight ran into the buzzsaw that was Michael Jordan and the bulls everybody likes to come and compete after losing the first American to pay for next to me is one of the most rewarding things you can do nobody as coaches of all time his determination to do things that help the league and help his team are rare and that we can maybe in any business one one thousand two hundred and twenty three regular season and playoff games over twenty three seasons with the jazz finally called it quits in two thousand eleven or it's a personality issues with Terrence Williams the charge both of them downplayed through it all he kept his dry sense of humor collected an array of tractors in antiques he also attended as many jazz games as he could always greeting fans with interest and charm David stern said in two thousand eleven few people have a bit of my eyes all the positive of team sports more than Jerry Sloan S.

"Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six is our phone number justly we talked about this earlier for those just joining us that Jerry Sloan passed away a long time Chicago Bull great and teaches passed away with the age of seventy eight all from downstate Illinois and longtime Utah Jazz coach yeah and longtime Chicagoan you know he was here a long time I think I mentioned earlier I always family and I'm Facebook friends with his daughter Holly who I grew up with and it's her first page right now is filling up with condolences so we send it as well just a I think his legacy I mean his basketball legacy will be one thing but in general you know in terms of what he brought to the game but in general I think as that as the condolences in the morning comes out and all that stuff I remember it says it's going to be no he's just a great great human being that's what I think a lot of people are gonna say about Jerry Sloan and and that's that's what I would say in the in the time that I stop to someone who's number hangs from the rafters at the United center we think about the Jordan bulls but before that there was some great bulls teams with norm bandleader and Jerry Sloan and then they were talk about a Sloan so often course with him and on the sidelines of the head coach for the Utah Jazz again you think about the jazzy thing about Sloan as being a head coach he did not get to the mountain top to win the championship with Sloan was very instrumental in really after Frank Layden really turning Utah unit into a power in the Western Conference big time absolutely he and he knew how to manage Stockton Malone and get the best out of them now he turned into a great coach after having that got couple three years as the as the bulls head guy seventy nine to eighty two they weren't very good but then from what was it eighty eight to two thousand eleven he was the head coach of the bowl of the Utah Jazz and obviously that covers those those championship you know get final games against the bulls so rest in peace Jerry Sloan who passed away at the age of seventy eight double.

"We heard that things were not looking good the other day for Jerry. Sloan someone when I think of I think of him as the very fiery head coach of the Utah Jazz and I don't remember him as an NBA player. It's funny you would probably most associate him with the Bulls if you are like my dad's generation but he's a guy who I always learn about. How far he was from Jim Barnett. Because Jim Barnett would always talk about my Gosh Jerry. Sloan one of the toughest defenders. He was all up in my grill even though he was know guard. And so. That's how I kind of thought of them as a player. How like Jim Barnett would describe him? But of course the head coach as we saw in the last dance more about that in a minute ninety seven ninety eight but he's died at the age of seventy eight due to complications from Parkinson's and something called Louis E. W y body dementia and he was a guy who revolutionized the concept of the pick and roll at least put it into the mainstream when you have Stockton Malone those three men. The coach and that duo spent eighteen seasons together. Fifteen with Sloan as the head coach. Sean where he was assistant to Frank Layden. The jazz have not mattered since he left. Well since those players left but he was a great player out of Evansville which is of course basketball country but doesn't give us a lot of top stars anymore. Fourth overall pick by the Washington bullets back in one thousand nine hundred sixty five you think about that in nineteen sixty five was the first year that MLB ever had a draft Only one year under his career. He was traded to the Bulls who are an expansion team in sixty six and then he was their point guard and he's pretty big guy for a point guard but two times. He was an all star four times. He was all defensive team the Bulls have his number four Jersey retired and that's where he began his coaching career. He was an assistant in Chicago and then he was the head coach in Chicago and he was fired in one thousand nine hundred eighty two now. I was a senior in high school in eighty two. And if you would say do you remember when Jerry Sloan was manager of the Bulls? I cannot tell a lie George Anfernee Washington. No I don't I don't remember him but that's when he got the Utah Assistant job before he succeeded. Frank Layden in eighty eight so listen. He held onto that job forever and eighty eight to twenty eleven. I remember his wife passed away. I was real tragic thing years ago and he coached. I think that night you know that was his way of dealing with it But one thousand two hundred twenty one victories. That is fourth all time in history Don Nelson of course number one Lenny Wilkins and Gregg Popovich. Whose gone is third. Sloan got into the hall of fame own nine the same year as Stockton did so on a Sunday reunion of NBA inside stuff that featured a lot of other legends. That's where Carl Malone said. We'LL EVERYBODY PRES. Please pray for Sloan has not doing well. And the Parkinson's he's had for four years so he's one of those guys. Some people say earning banks of coaches basically the greatest coach in NBA history who never won a championship You know no one includes a lot of other coach Don Nelson there but I mean had his jazz not run into Michael Jordan twice. They may have hoisted at least one but you know without that feather in his cap. Sloan is GONNA be remembered for contributions to the game outside of that as I said the pick and roll system that was you know as old as the hills but pioneered into Championship basketball is really one of the main bases of modern. Mba Offenses Right now. So the Jazz said quote Jerry. Sloan will always be synonymous with UTAH. Jazz he will furby a part of the Utah Jazz Organization and joined his family and friends and fans in mourning his loss and we are so thankful for what he accomplished here in Utah and the decades of dedication loyalty into he brought to our franchise. Our Hall of Fame Coach for Twenty three years. Jerry had a tremendous impact on the jazz franchise as expressed by his banger hanging in the arena. Rafters is one thousand two hundred twenty three jazz. Coaching Wins Twenty trips to the NBA playoffs and to NBA finals.

We also get this from Raja Bell. Who was on? Cbs Sports Headquarters. This morning he said quote. Jerry's one of my favorite coaches of all time. I chose to play for him twice. I went to Utah the second time because of the respect I have for him end quote now bells respect for Sloan stems from that opportunity that he gave him obviously but prior to going to Utah. Bell played for the sixers he played for the mavs was not getting a lot of Consistent minutes and those places but once it got to Utah in Oh three. This is when things started going up for him especially on defense and bell continues when I got to Jerry it coincided with Stockton retiring and Malone going to La so he wanted me to be a part of that team defensively what he did for my career overall. Be Eternally grateful. He was instrumental because he had this take no prisoners. Give no labs away and fight for every inch on the floor mentality. And and that's true and bell became a good defender and then Trade him to the sons but he was all defensive back to back years with the sons and they went to the Western Conference finals and you know bells career flourished because of him and he concludes quote.

"But I said, I like what I'm seeing. And he said, look, if you're willing to meet me every day after work. He said, we'll start working on some of this stuff and he said it will do it for a few weeks. And if you'd like it, you know, you can think about enrolling engineer college next fall. And so that's what I did. So he would meet me day after works. I worked twelve hours I go to the gym for two hours after that and started doing these little things like these little drills in Jila drills, and footwork drills and all this little stuff and I'm still got Greece on my fingernails. But I'm out there trying to catch the basketball to these different things over the course of four months. I got a little bit better and my body started coming around a little bit. And so I decided to go back to junior college, and that was the beginning of a career Vasquez ball that started this junior. College went from there to UCLA to the NBA and their stories in between there. But the but to get back to your question this coach Tomlin became one of my best friends, he still one of my best friends. Thirty six thirty. Yvonne is even lower that, like, I don't know forty years later late seventies. And he never asked me for anything all ever did form was get him some tickets to the games. We play the Lakers of the clippers I gave him one of my jerseys when the jazz retired my jersey and he's just been one of my best friends, and he just simply did it because he saw some potential in me that I didn't see. And he was willing to go to bat for me and push me a little bit to encourage me to at least give it a try. I mean, he would you drive from ever side down to Cyprus on the ninety one free, which from LA knows? That's a, that's a nightmare himself and meet me at six AM, and we had run for an hour, and then he'd go to class and teach class all day. I'd go to work all day and then after class after class and after work, he meet me again, in the gym for another two hours to teach me these basketball skills. I mean who does that? And so, I think what I take away from that is over the course of my life. He was always that guy. That would say, hey, how's it going? What are you doing? How's it going what we talk about this? You'd be tried that. And teaching even teaching chemistry. He inspired students who hated chemistry to go onto become doctors and pharmacology guys and other, you know, industrial chemists and things like that, that all took his chemistry class at the same time. So that's my story about the first time some, I remember somebody being being good to me, and that is that is classic blood good. And do a great movie. Would be a great movie. We he's like a rocky story. I know we, we say this all the time that, that, you know, you watch the news. And you think they're no good people in the world. But, but they're so are just so many great people doing just that, right? That they see something in somebody, and they just they just want to assist them because they just know they should that is so cool. Thank you, that, it that epitomize everything that we're talking about. And and as we stand up for it. So can can we take it a little bit further now that we went there? Can you tell us a story about when you've done that I'm putting on the spot? I'm sorry. I just go. I wanna see a pay it forward type of thing. That. And this one's in my book, as well after retired from the NBA, I started in a program called standing tall for youth for at risk kids in originally, started with the idea of, let's get the kids to a basketball camp who can't afford to go like the first basketball camp ever went to I was the guest speaker. And so, so I, I put together the side do with another friend of mine, and brench Neider played in the NFL played at Utah state, and we created this basketball camp that had life skills component Brent at that time was working for the Covey leadership sentence, we took some of those principles development, and we put the basketball skills together, and we created awards around. So the MVP the camp wasn't somebody who just the best player. It was somebody who'd encompass both the best playing skills and the best leadership skills from being in the classroom things that we did. Right. Yeah. It morph into basketball outdoor camps. We ran camps in the grown wilderness outside of Jackson Hole in grizzly habitat because that's behavior. Modifier. Pay attention. So I did this for about fourteen years. We had a young lady from Ogden named Kansas, and she grown up in a very difficult family in downtown on gun. And she came to us when she was about eleven and she was a little rough and kinda tough. And, you know, just simply product of her environment where she lived right in most, his, we dealt with never left their neighborhoods. Right. Did event Wasatch Abobo than been parleys candidate never nothing? So we got her going with basketball. Can't we gotta go with the outdoor camps? And she became kinda favored, a lot of the staff people that I worked with. And we always look forward to seeing her 'cause we tried to camps all year round. We tried to do some weekend things, and we'd have the summer camp and we have the basketball camp. And so we try to keep in touch with them at least every few months. Well, over the course of a few years, she stays with us. She wins MVP some other things, and then she got to be about sixteen or so, when she, you know, went off, like everybody else does, and, and we kinda lost track of her. And once I'd hear, hey, maybe from. I don't I hurt us taking some classes that Weaver state or something, like okay, let's good and, and a four or five years after that, I get a Facebook request from her for a friend requests. And I'm like Kansas. Oh my gosh. So I immediately respond my Hannah's tennis. How are you? Tell me what's going on at data, and she has responded like. Okay in about a day later. She sends me a photo of a diploma from a master's in social work from the university, Utah, boom, that your story and the other half of the movie and the other half of the movie absolutely. Asom. I'm not always at a loss for words, but everyone, you know, sometimes I just have to knowledge it that, thank you. Because we, we never know what we're gonna do for folks. Never know what, what kind of an impact and even even one. Matters because we have so much. In this day and age of, of kids, that don't feel like they have a meaning that they should be on this earth. And it's, it's worsen. It's ever been and, and everything that we can do to assist those kids in knowing that there's a reason for them to be on. This earth is Gordon. So thank you. All right. I get this. Yeah. This question. Yeah. You get this question. What time? Is it lost lost all track for forty? All right. Okay. What is your commitment to living a biz for good life? What is Mark Eaton's can win commitment for living to a biz for good life? Well, as I think, what the stories that have just told you pretty sure that's what was done for me that somebody came to me and said, hey, I can teach you how to do something differently. I'm better that. Maybe you've never seen before. I am a result of the coaches and mentors that have had in my life from from, from my coach Tom to will Chamberlain to coach Laden. When I first came to the jazz to Jerry Sloan on, and then other in other my mentors and business. So when I get on stage and I look at my job up there is to share some of my experiences in the lessons. I learned with you in hopes that you'll pick up one tip or one idea that. That will transform how you think about your life, and how you approach your life at work, especially and even have you approach your home life. And so, that's, that's what I do. That's why speak. I mean, it's, it's fun to go out there, meet all the people, and, and, you know, it's very interesting career to challenge in career but at the end of the day when somebody comes up to me after the presentation and says, thank you, I needed to hear that today. That's for 'em. Like, okay. That's why that's why I'm here. One person one person, even one person. And, you know, some if you speak on ally you probably has experienced me one day. You're, you're speaking, six hundred people in the big ballroom, and Caesar's palace in Las Vegas, right lights and cameras over the next day. You're speaking to a safety group into buke, Iowa as one hundred twenty people from mostly blue collar backgrounds and the lighting's not so good. They're using the house audio, you know, it's a little different experience. So one of my favorite stories about that is, when I, I was getting started speaking, and we I get started. It's, it's rough. I mean you have to get up there and you have to inspire people for an hour, something like talking on TV radio. Just go on, on ES like you gotta bring it every, so I was thinking for group. It was it was the Salt Lake county, health department, actually L, other nurses, and doctors, ingrate grip. But I was the closing keynote from four to five so at five o'clock did a great job. They all applauded what would they do after that? 'cause five o'clock the went home knew nobody stuck around to take a pick. Better or anything like that, Paul. Because it was the end of the conference with me. But as a speaker like, oh, we're going to say rally by a CD. They're booking. They've been there since eight o'clock in the morning, they're just going home. So I'm cleaning up my computer and stuff and pick an easings papers, and there's like one lady kind of wandered around the tables. And so I'm just like picking up stuff and get my briefcase together. I'm like, okay. Well, that was fun. And, you know gone to the next one, and she grabbed me as get relieving, she said, you know, she said, I had to make a really big decision today in my life. And she said, listen, your presentation helped me make it with confidence. I wanna thank you. You know, the reason you're here, today was for me, Mike. Oh, okay. Done the one. That's the whole whole reason forgot about all the other three hundred ninety nine people that left. Absolutely. That's what that's what we tell people at speak up all the time. If there's one person these the here, what you say it's worth and its connection. That's what's so amazing. And you never know who that person is or when they need it. But so cool, thank you. Thank you. Okay. So let's let's, let's take this to the to the to the listeners. What could you give the listeners to step their game up? What kind of gold nuggets speaking of what kind of tool gold, nugget could you give to the listeners right now? And give them a call to action to go out and do to assist them. Sure. One story. So when I first came to the jazz, we were pretty bad team in a bad market. Games were shown tape. Delayed eleven o'clock at night after BYU. The fan we had about four thousand fans which show up to the games and things like that. It was rough the players are the office staff is told not to cash their paychecks until the players cash there because things were short. They're constantly in the red. And so it was kind of a rough time. And our coach Frank Layden said, you know, look, you said if we're going to change this of a change this culture, he said we have to get away from this kind of selfish thinking a lot of guys who were bounce around leagues. Like, okay, I'm going to the jazz Ari again, my fifteen shots punch my time clock. Get in get out click my Chaco home mean that was kind of the mindset then the early eighties..

"If we can back out for just one second and we I think we've talked about this a little bit before. If you grew up loving basketball in this country you were an other. It has always been that way. They're more popular than the Blue Jays. I think right basketball arenas saying, maybe not the Blue Jays, topped out around four million four point two four point three but that was for the American League championship series wasn't a World Series game. I mean this gets onto the conversation of metrics and water. We use saying, like, if you look at TV ratings, I think the Jays if they were to go to the World Series, their numbers, would probably bigger, be bigger and Canada than, than the raptors would be, but also TV ratings is one metric that skews old. And if you consider whatever other metric you wanna use, whether it's Facebook likes or streams, or whoever knows what else I think it's pretty equal. At least the Bluejays are playing today and there are terrible there, there were I don't know if they're terrible. I will say there was all people walking to the game Bluejays uniforms are nice. Nice shade. A blue is nice. But I'll tell you, you know what's growing on me. The red north uniforms that the raptors have been wearing on the road. I don't know if they've lost a game in those uniforms, by the way, they might be right. Actually, the red version of that when they first unveiled that. It's a light. It looks like a lighter. Read to me like it. Almost looks pink on TV. I. They're, they're, they're just nice. They're not all Dacia. They're just it's a very nice clean. It's grown on me. Thanks very important finals analysis. It's grown on me. But what is happening right now is you're going to go back to serious, cultural talk. No talk about what they look like the what is happening now is the important thing that they're not using Drake jerseys during the finals. But the next thing is like this is this is a moment. And whether or not they win this series. This is a moment. The basketball never had in this country because if you grew up in this country and basketball hockey was the monoculture. It was the dominant church. And you were a small sect and you might have had friends who love basketball. You might have gotten like me VHS tapes of dazzling. Dunks and basketball bloopers. I shook hands with Frank Layden at game. Yeah, he was here for game two Kim to and told them like he's one of the reasons I became a sportswriter, because I wonder if they'll basketball's because Franklin was hilarious on dazzling dunks, and basketball bloopers, and that was, how can Canadian could like me could access the NBA. And what's happened now is you have a team that after all these years for the raptors. Has passed every test to this point and the tests as you mentioned in the Philly series, the Milwaukee series, those were near death experiences? And if you're a raptors fan, your team has never gotten past that, and now, they're at a moment where they have a chance to win a title people. It's that time of year again basketball's homestretch. This is where all the hard work pays off when we see who's tough enough to be crowned champion of the MBA players or more driven than ever to go further faster and longer.

And then one falls, and then the rest fall many just drops the tray and that was basically the oursel- game. This is not fun. I've often seen this. Like it's more common with a contact sports where it's because it's so painful to keep fighting for a game, that's so out of hand that you just see people just faming injuries to get out of the. Washington spirit defeat of Utah, royals, two zero the Utah warriors they lost in their season finale to the Houston sabre cats in the NHL championships, the Boston Bruins lead, the Saint Louis leads Saint Louis two to one in competition for the Stanley Cup king game four of the NHL playoffs tonight, feel like that's been going on for ever.

So what about this Ricky Rubio situation with the jazz, when he tweeted out that they've let him know that he's not a priority, really like me anymore. And, and it makes them feel bad. Sure. Well, I don't know that I don't know that they don't like him. I think he's not a priority because he's an older guard. He actually played really. I think he played better in Utah. A lot of people expected him to play not maybe than the guys who signed him. But a lot of fans in all. Yeah. He's in bit being a great person doesn't isn't the reason they're going to keep you. I mean, it's going to be under there that team is full of. They've kept me that, that, that team is full of a lot of great human beings. And sadly, they're not all going to be back because they need to get better. If they wanna if you wanna win basketball games if you just want to have a great team, it would be fine. But most people, including the people who own the team would like to someday win an NBA championship or at least a free agent so trading I mean, they can't trade him but that's not going to go, well they'd have to do a sign and trade because he in as July. He's on. He's a free agent, and we'll see what happens, but I mean he's an older guy. Like I said, wonderful human being, I think within his first week here, he was down boxing stuff up for Puerto Rico. I mean, just disa- genuinely nice person so he'll be fine. But I mean we've lost a lot of nice people. Through this town. So speaking of nice people, one of them, Frank Layden, also genus, buddy. He wins the NBA Chuck Daly, lifetime achievement award and the best part about him winning was hearing him speak, his his name. On behalf of all the coaches. He worked with accepts the award because they were the best part of his job. And then he said, I also accept this word on behalf of all see students, which gave me hope. So he just a funny funny guy. I mean, he and he, he is sort of the Ron McBride, I guess of NBA, so he brought the team into a really great place. And then Jerry took him to the first one of the first coaches in the WNBA too.

So somebody was talking about this won't why do they allow this to happen? And I because it's they're very poor down there. And they they're more than happy to take your money. His his assertion is. It's not really just about issuing fewer permits. It's also the, the weather window is so short for ever anyway. Now like two weeks long. And if there's bad weather, which there was this year, it's even fewer days. And then people wanna summit, the minute, there's a good day. Everybody goes. Yeah. So it's not really matter of fewer permits won't solve that problem. They need to solve the weather problem. Yes, they do. They control the weather. Any other mountain? You have two or three month window. Everybody keeps talking about the weather problem. But nobody does anything about it. I say you should do that. All right. Thank you.

They asked him what he remembered most about his first year in the NBA said I remembered that guy behind the bench in Washington who was giving the hard time the whole game. Even if dry scored twenty points in the first half I used to I used to I listened to all his rap records. Where he would say, you know, he's got skills, and I would change it to you've got bills and this some of his Bill he get he he got. They get upset the whole idea really was just to take their mind off their game. You know, Jimmy Jackson. I used to call him EMMY action because he couldn't. We had a lot of. But but but I tell you hard hardness looking good it's uncanny. The game has changed since I was there because of these three point shots. I've never seen anyone who can just dribble. Like, he does fake the guy out almost the guy almost falls over. And then he hits back and hits hits these threes. The threes and changed the game. Totally and you can argue if it's changing for the better, not, Robin. It's great to catch up with you. And thanks for joining us insurance and stories. Yeah. The the best player I ever saw, quite frankly. And I saw him in Philadelphia when I was in law school there was Wilt Chamberlain because no one could stop that. He would just sit under there and and dunk the basketball. He was he's a lot stronger than than the guy from Milwaukee Bucks. He was just the tower of power. I know you couldn't stop him. And I'm gonna have to try to stop you, Robin. We're up against the commercial break here. Thank you, Robin. We appreciate that. Great stories Cowboys close to paying Dak Prescott have update for you on that Chris Mannix.
"frank layden" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"But I brought up Robin Vickers. Name last hour, and we were talking about the fans in Houston who were heckling Kevin Durant last night. There was one fan who kept yelling out chanting, New York Knicks whenever he would get at the free throw line and social media picked up on this and social media making a bigger story out of this because we don't know of Golden State, and Kevin Durant are gonna partways really end up with the Knicks, and it took a lot longer, you know, back in the eighties nineties, but if you made it on sportscenter, and I remember Robin Fikre who was one of the better hecklers in all of sports, and he was there for the bullets. They were the bullets before the wizard and Robin had season tickets. You went to every home game. I think he might have been in the second row, but the, but the players knew Robin, and it was almost like a badge of honor if Robin singled you out and started heckling you you had to be good. I think for for Robin to be. Heckling you an attorney political activist infamous sports heckler one of the forefathers Robin thicker joining us on the program. Good morning, Robyn. How are you? Good morning. I would've mentioned to Kevin Durant. I would've mentioned the name Monica. Right. His ex fiancee who's getting married? And Kevin not even invited to the wedding. He tossed Kevin aside. And she's marrying some guy who played for Valparaiso and Pebane. I I would have put that in his mind to keep his thinking away from what he was supposed to be doing. He's not even the most highly paid player on on Golden State that curry makes more money than he does even know set courage dad was a poor shot when when I used to sit behind him. He he he was a scribe shooter just like tests a little bit better than his dad, but neither one of them can really do much else than sit behind the three point line in pop it in, but Kevin Durant. I think we need to get into why he's not being invited to the wedding of of the girl. He was engaged to her so long. He he really, you know, started out with the Lee played for Oklahoma for about eight years, and he's been with Golden State for three. So. Now, he's looking around again, where's your anchor? Kevin. Why don't you stay in one place and do well what I know you're making more than three hundred thousand each game. Okay. Why don't you get your salary up? Where a Seth curry salary is up near the top. You've gotta teammate earning more than you. You claim that you're so good. But why don't you just concentrate in one area instead of moving around like a general books? All right. But you haven't lost your fastball. Gimme gimme a sense of the players did did players re how many players reacted to you. They all did they used to move. Their time outs. Their timeout huddles away from the the bench. I I I was in the front row. And then they pay us the rule, which is still principle in the back of every season ticket which says that that fans cannot sit behind the opposing bench and interfere with communication between the opposing coach and players. And if they do they should be given a warning. And if they're given two warnings in there tossed out of the game. But you know, it's free speech if they don't want the fans who really pay all the royalties who buy the products who make the game. What it is. If they don't want the game next to those players, then perhaps they should put up a barrier. Like, they have in hockey, you know, so the fan so the players these sensitive little players were earning three hundred thousand a game. Can't hear what the fans have to say. These fans at worked hard all week. Wanna let loose who are getting vicarious thrill who who wanna talk to these players. They don't wanna hear that. They don't want the players to hear what the fans are saying then they should stop selling pink. Witty. They sell the seats right on the court right next to the players. The NBA is making a lot of money from these fans, maybe they should make all the players where air so that they don't get their mind off their game. I wasn't heckling. I was just giving them therapy is the Charles Barkley story. True. Did he fly you into Chicago during the NBA finals or buy your ticket or to heckle, Jordan? No that was into Phoenix. And when he played for Phoenix Charles Barkley was. He was really my favorite player. He used to leave little notes on my seat, saying, rob. And hope you don't give me a hard time tonight. Gave me the game ball a few times. He brought down a huge a seventy sixer emblem which was on a on a ring it was about ten feet across and they held that up behind the seventy six or bench. So that the players Jim Lyman couldn't hear me. And then the league made them take it down. I would say to Charles Charles. I I heard you're running for governor of Alabama before I vote for you. I want to know your view on health care the economy and NAFTA, and he turned around and said, well, I do have a view on the death penalty. They should use it on you. Did Jordan never respond to. Oh, yeah. He did. Because he had claimed he had read Sam Smith's book the Jordan rules. He claimed he had read it which was a bestseller. You read into him. Didn't you? I read him. Embarrassing excerpts where he made comments about his his teammates calling. Oh, one of the guys a six foot ten stiffy. He he made some uncomplimentary remarks. There were uncomplimentary quotes in the book. And then occasionally I would make things up and he would turn around and shakes his head. No he'd read every word. But he chose were different. Because after the game Charles would go out in the clubs and there'd be people crowding around. Mike would go into his private dining room and sit there was some friends. It was really two different people. But of course, they both wonderful athletes. Did anybody take a swing at you? Yeah. Coach Frank Layden did. Not a lot of reach their on Frank Layden. I was complimenting him. He was having a feud with Adrian Dantley his one of his best players. I was mentioning that tonight also bringing up the fact that USA today had rated him the worst dressed coach in the NBA. Okay. So I was on the whole the whole game about the Adrian and about how he was dressed in what he should be wearing to the games and at the end of the game, which they won he came. He came through the seat. He started coming through the the mailman was holding him back. Karl Malone was holding back swinging bidding. He completely lost it. And I really everything I said could have been entered into paper nothing was about sexual matters or about race or about anything that anything that couldn't be said. Would you consider coming back? Well, it's it's a lot of fun. But it's just that I'm so busy now doing other things, you know, I I broke away from it. Because my daughter was a professional triathlete. She was ended up second in the world, ironman. She was going all over the world. I broke away from it my sons wrestled in college. And so they were there other things you can do other than go to the NBA. But believe me, I didn't miss a game for twelve years. It was a lot of fun while it lasted, and I got to know every player in the NBA Chucky remains my favorite because he's very good with the rep part t- shack. I know was interviewed. They asked him what he remembered most about his first year and the NBA said I remembered that guy behind the bench in Washington who was giving the hard time the whole game. Even after I scored twenty points in the first half I used to I used to I listened to all his rap records. Where he would say, you know, he's got skills, and I would change it to you've got bills and some of his Bill. He he. They get upset the whole idea really was just to take their mind off their game. You know, Jimmy Jackson. I used to call any action because he couldn't. We had a lot of fun but hard hardness looking good. It's uncanny. The game has changed since I was there because of these three point shots. I'd never seen anyone who could just dribble. Like he does fake guy out almost the guy almost falls over. And then he hits back and hits hits these threes. The threes and changed the game. Totally and you can argue if it's changing for the better, not, Robin. It's great to catch up with you. And thanks for joining us and showing some stories. Yeah. The best player I ever saw, quite frankly. And I saw him in Philadelphia when I was in law school there was Wilt Chamberlain because no one could stop that guy. He would just sit under there and and dunk the basketball. He was he's a lot stronger than than the guy from Milwaukee Bucks. He was just the tower of power. I know you couldn't stop him. And I'm going to have to try to stop you, Robin. We're up against the commercial break here. Thank you, Robin. We appreciate that. Some great stories.
