"george mcginnis" Discussed on Bob Ryan & Jeff Goodman NBA Podcast
"Okay, to wrap things up, I love bob Ryan stories. And Jeff, this one was told to me by Dan shaughnessy. And the reason I'm telling this story. Gene Shu, who coached Philadelphia and also Washington, I believe. It's passed away at the age of 90. Now, this is when I fell in love in the NBA when she was touching the sixers and you know it was in the 70s and any of Bobby Jones, George McGinnis and all these guys in Honda with it. So, but this is an indication of the impact that and how in bob Ryan was in the fabric of the NBA. I mean, it can't happen today because of accessibility. But I mean, you know, in a lot of the global people were gammas was the same way, you know, will certainly McDonald with the NFL. I mean, he was the freaking commissioner for God's sakes. This story illustrates how in bob Ryan was with the NBA. Bob writes a story about the officiating and I think it was the 6 or Celtic series. Now this is when the media sat where they have all the rich people sitting out. They sat right at center court. So there's like bob is a bob always wanted to sit by the opposition because he wanted to hear what was going on in the 6 year bench. Correctly if I'm wrong, because he knew what was going on in Celtic bench, he wanted to know what's going on with the other guys, right? The shot as you said to the next one, and then the ref comes down, makes a call, goes against Philly, Jean shoe turns around and says, that's because of you bob Ryan. Hi. Now, the punch line is true. The genesis was this. He was coaching the bullets for the second. And Rick mahorn had Rick mahorn, you know, he was with this dog. He was a rational look, okay. And force her. And yeah, and at tough guy. He was the original theme mcnasty was Rick mahorn and Jeff ruling if you remember. Okay. So something happened with Mick mahorn. And I called up the official supervisor. At the time, I forget who it was, whether it was Darryl or whatever. And I said, is can you tell me if certain guys in the league get extra scrutiny from the officials? IE Rick mahorn, because of it, he had gotten thrown out of a game for thuggery. And he said, well, truthfully, yes. And I wrote it. So then the next time the bullets came in, I don't know how soon it was after it may have been suing week. I was indeed sitting in my unusual seat next to a visiting bench and in the first period or whenever it was, there was a foul on the horn at which point gene Chu did jump up and say, that's your fault by Ryan, your fault. So that's a true story. I love that story. I mean, the other great story that shadows she told to, this is what bob went into the Hall of Fame, was you were talking during the game, DJ's fiddling the ball up and said, DJ turns to bob, you want to keep it down and try to play a game here..

But i would say that my game change ourselves you know i was still a second team all pro would but i wasn't you know deflate i wasn't aba to my mvp which was nine hundred. Eighty one and i just decided i needed to score more points. I need to do more things and reflect my abilities on the basketball court and impose my will on the other players around the league. And i was able to do that and it was a great deal satisfaction in that year to do that. 'cause i knew that i hadn't lost it that it had just been adjusted by design by teammates. The coaches designed trusted whatever's gonna get us to the championship. The you adopted you had chocolate thunder or Hard the chocolate thunder used to dump the wall it. You know what i mean.

"Derrick Rose, he wasn't MVP there, closing more about 2015 that growth was still really nice. You know, this whole player empowerment thing I love to see players instead of shrinking and small markets or playing for dysfunctional front offices taking their career into the whole entire whole hand. Because players, the fan bases, some fans are going to talk about, you know, 8 away, look at it. Either way, if you're KD, okay, you went to a 73 and 19 year old stack in the deck. If you're tracing mcgrady, oh, you never made out in the first round. So anyway, people are going to talk about you. So you might as well just write Charles Barkley. Yeah, Markle along the same and they tried that, and then went to the Lakers so that the Hall of Fame team and Barkley did it in Houston. And those ended in injuries, unfortunately, the both of those guys because they got to the end of their careers. So yeah, I mean, you know, I actually went when Durant went to the warriors. I got really excited because I could sense that this style of play wasn't going to be individualistic. There was going to be a lot of ball movement in a lot of skill and just fireworks, which is what we got. And so depending on how the style of play, you know, we had it for one season. Right, right. Fair enough. They got a little bit different after the first one, but like the Philadelphia 76ers in the late 70s, they had picked up not elegant. McGinnis, George McGinnis, who was like, you know, Hall of Famer to go alongside at that point, I was at Moses Malone was there, maybe and then they had like doctor J and that was a bunch of individuals. I didn't really play like a team. They got beat by the Portland Trail Blazers and they're only a title. And so that's not what I would want to see. But when you see the team that's actually like they share the ball and they spread the floor right and they just play like a team. From a coach's perspective, that's what I like to see. So whether or not if it is a super team like that, then I'm all for it, but it devolves then I'm not. You know, I just want good basketball, right? Is it a crime? You know, the thing with the nets, by the way, is if you can stay close, if you can get like Illinois, even a little two point lead down the stretch, you're gonna get Kyrie.

"Seasons on solid efficiency while rebounding the ball pretty well and and having been a pretty solid playmaker roger. Brown can pretty much do it. All wasn't the best defender but he was a hustler. He's a guy that was always diving for loose balls. Always doing what he had to do when it really mattered. And he was a big reason why they won those aba championships three of them. In fact he also was unable to playoffs. Mvp for one of those championships made. It's a four. Aba all star teams made it to the nba. First team all aba first team two time all m second team and that's a big reason. Why his number. Thirty five is retired by the pacers. And so so. Roger brown coming in at seven Should be no surprise to any pacers fans and number six. We have marky mark. Mark jackson everybody. Six seasons with the indiana pacers. Men averaged eight point. Four points per game. Eight point one assists per game three point eight rebounds and one point one steals on about forty three and a half percent shooting from the field and thirty six percent from three mark. Jackson was not a very flashy player. He wasn't a guy when not flashes. Ages dislike athletic. I should know that. That's what i was aiming for. He wasn't very athletic player. He wasn't wowing you with his incredible abilities but went though the one thing he did. Well you can tell is playmate. I mean he's one of the best Playmakers in pacers history. I think he's The leader in assists per game And i think assist to turnover ratio. If i'm not mistaken and in six six in six seasons. He did a lot of great things really elevated that franchise from being somewhat of a team. That would always come out wrong. End of those playoff series so then elevating them to actually making it to conference finals. And and mark. Jackson was a huge reason for that and a little bit of everything i mean could shoot the ball bid. Even though that wasn't his primary focus he was always trying to get his teammates open. He led the league in assists one year but that he that was one of the year. She was with denver where he went to denver for a season. But he got traded back to indiana. He averaged twelve assists with denver in that season. Then when an average about like nine with the pacers in the thirty games left in the season and finished leading the league in assists that year. So more jackson one of the best playmakers of not no the best playmaker on this list and certainly deserves to be mentioned in indiana pacers history. So he comes in at number six and number five. We got jermaine. O'neal jermaine o'neal one of the first players that i remember in my early years of just learning about the nba because back in those men to thousands. He was an absolute monster. I mean he was almost unstoppable and was well known as one of the best centers or best power forwards in the nba. I mean average in eight seasons within the anna he averaged eighteen point six points per game. Nine point six rebounds two assists two point four blocks and on just under forty six percent shooting from the field he made it to six all star teams one oh mba second team to all nba teams and won the nba most improved award. I mean just an absolute force to be reckoned with and what in that two thousand two season. He went from averaging. What was it. Thirteen points and ten rebounds in his first year. Indiana to nineteen points and ten and a half rebounds and absolute monster average over two blocks game in every single season he was with them and was just a double double machine. And and an an an enforcer down low and that's why germain o.'neil comes into number five. I mean the guy was just an absolute monster though. Sorry indiana pacers fans. I know you guys are listen to this because you don't you're big indiana fans and you want to know who i think are your best players but the one thing i remember for jermaine o'neal know he came to miami but before that was dwayne wade getting a nasty dunk on him and it was a big thing because of how big of a player jermaine o'neal is like i know i'm kinda sliding in a highlight against him but there was such significant to it because remain on the overseen is one of the best shot blockers and dominant players in the league of that time so germaine o'neil comes in at number five and number four had to mention it. It's paul george. Seven seasons with the indiana pacers averaged eighteen points a game. Six point three rebounds three point two assists one point seven steals on forty three percent shooting from the field and thirty seven percent from three. I mean paul. George is one of the best to way winger wing players in the entire league and develop those skills in indiana and was one of the keys to being a thorn in the side of the miami heat and lebron james over through those you know early. Twenty s. He made it to four nba all-star teams. He made it to the nba thirteen three times and all defensive first team or once all defensive second team twice when the most improved player would and twenty thirteen And this guy was just an absolute animal when he was there. I just remember when he first came into the league. He was very raw athlete. A guy that can do a little bit of everything on both ends but they started to develop into an incredible shotmaker. And that was what you know that one thing that was missing and his game that he developed quite a lot and became one of indiana pacers players ever and i know the way he left leaves a sour mouth. Sour taste in indiana pacer fans mouths. But it's just it's a fact that this guy was one of their best players ever and that's why he comes in at number four and number three we have another. Aba player in mel daniels played six seasons with the indiana pacers and averaged a ridiculous nineteen point four points per game sixteen rebounds and one point six blocks on forty eight percent shooting from the field one three aba championships to aba. Mvp's read to six aba all star appearances one the aba all-star game mvp an nba second team once and what was the rebounding champion for the aba twice. Of course his numbers. His numbers retired by indiana. And i mean. Mel daniels is known as one of the most dominant centers of those. Aba seasons Made it to the aba all time team for a reason. This guy was just an absolute force and was probably the driving force of this. Team's dominance of the being able to win three championships for indiana in that in that league. And that's why comes in at number three however he was not as good and versatile as george mcginnis who comes in at number two played seven seasons for the indiana pacers between the aba in nba Average almost twenty points a game Almost eleven rebounds three point three assists one point. Eight steals one to aba championships. The eight one had an nba playoff. Mvp one aba mvp award three aba all-star teams to all im- aba first teamers one all aba second team and even scoring champion for the aba. Once of course is number. Thirty retired by. Indiana and george mcginnis not known by many. You know young fans in the nba. But this guy was do it. All type of ford in the league Just being able to score and a lot of different ways could rebound with the best of them. Had you know underrated playmaking and his defense was amongst the best in the league and that's why he was in my opinion the best player among those. Aba you know players. That are on this list. I gotta put george mcginnis number two and then of course a number one. If you had any doubts i again. I don't know what to tell you this. Man as the best player in indiana pacers history. And that's reggie miller. I mean the man that made you know three point shooting. A regular thing in the league averaged eighteen points in his eighteen seasons with indiana only played with them and obviously is a lifer an indiana pacers lifer so he averaged eighteen point game on forty seven percents shooting thirty nine and a half percent from three three rebounds three assists in one point one steals per game and he gave his horse out for this indiana pacers franchise every single time. He stepped out there. I'm sure he had chances to move on to other teams..

"Well you know if you try to history why something happened. You're agreeing with well. No but we need to understand and what we wanted to do especially in these times is to show positive relationships. People trying to come together. Not you know schmaltzy at all. But just regular whom human beings I think a lot of television nowadays goes the characters the anti heroes go over the top man. You kind of lose the sense of just being regular people.

Philadelphia squad when they brought in Dr J and Caldwell, Jones and Henry Baby, and you know, they already had a good team. People forget how Much of a superstar George McGinnis, Woz and Doug Collins was 20 point a game score and they And Philadelphia look great.

Now when you went to philly doc you became really a more team oriented player than you were in In new york. You had. George mcginnis lloyd free doug collins but you became more of a team ballplayer down with the sixers. I felt as though my squires years in the chain. Yeah and my nazi is. We did play team basketball and In philly with gene shoob You know we tried to play this balance style of basketball but there was a lot of individuality and philadelphia that. It took a couple of years to to to get rid of and even though in that first year he played for the nba championship and Seventy six seventy seven season Lost apartment You know it took several years and some coaching changes in order to really find the team that you know we had eighty eighty two eighty three In which we compete with it but a championship for To times Well actually eighty eighty two and eighty three three times Winning running and eighty three s. You know so When you say that the team game you know probably by you know you start looking at maybe my individual stats and you know there was much higher than aba tire and and with the nets But they were actually the highest with the squires in those first couple years. Charlie scott on the team and Race scott Fatty taylor berry williams jambo jamaicans so curve and and you know the year yield town was on that team and we had albie yankees coach. Albie was really a great coach and And hall of fame scout having loughry in and and billy cunningham so so i was able to be influenced by some Great coaches who were former players and And each had their own style but The fun time fun time for me.

And we're glad to hear that doc. That's for sure. Now i wanna talk to you about one of your signature moves. The baseline move now. The one of the most memorable plays i remember. It was during the eighty. Nba finals It was impossible finger roll behind. The backboard drove past. I think it was mark landsberger on the right baseline and then kareem. Kareem comes into the picture right. Yeah yeah yeah you know that We just kind of call it the layup up and under up in under probably To the thing about it was the hang time now that i was able to To take off you know on the right side of the basket and shoot the ball on the left side of the vaccine and actually took off outside of the the free throw lane. you know. they're lying going down up and down from the free throw line and Just kind of You know sort an air for a while has the ball in one hand hanging out away from the defense and then when it got to the other side of the basket there was an opening too to bring it up and -unding spinning spin off the glass with kareem abdul-jabbar standing there with his arms hoisted. Yeah and he never jumped. And i just remember distinct stinks. Wish lee Fall into the ground. And you know 'cause. I had just exhausted my My job and you know. For whatever reason i could land on my feet are be just hit you know hit sideways and selling the ground and got up and ran down the court and then suddenly you know pants. The next day is just like this series of photos depicting that move in that game. And it's something that you know has lived on all of these years For sure was in college now. They're black and white photo. There's the yeah there. There's a an. I see i see.

"How did you take it to that level. Well i think for me. I mean i went in hempstead. I went to prospect entry school. That was a k. Through eight school in there and they always had these These two baskets that were back to back and one was eight feet and the other one was at nine thirty so so So when i we would have recess. You know we even get a chance to play basketball. Though we we got there and play football and and You know we just do recreation. The in the school in the back and i found it a very very interesting and To to play on that eight faster for five and six. I had a big hand. You know we played Horse would play pig you know spoke to eliminate the next guy right and you know i had a big hand and i could hold the ball with one hand. We didn't always so the basketball sublime you know a soccer ball to stay Dadfar something so you know everybody was everybody was able to gifted and rip it and basketball thing. I was just one of may be cooped players who can hold it in these things in the air with basketball. And then he started on eight v and deal with bill out they when i got tested and they're ultimately on a ten foot basket you know when i was probably like thirteen years old. How so the developing game just came by. If he vaulting from coming you know on on a playground with With lower rams and then finally get into the big ram and then eventually getting to the time And it's so funny. You would say that. Because while i was in college you know when they took the dunk out of the game. And that's right and that was one of my weapons. Then they took it out of the game. So i had a lot of pent up anger wanting to know once. I got to the pros because My that i created for basketball in college. I couldn't walk them all. Yeah that was terrible. I remember that now. You signed a contract briefly with the atlanta hawks stock. And you had the chance to play with pistol pete. Now i know you. And he had some some matchups there In practice or undecided. Tell us a little bit about your time with pistol. Pete marriage katie. No i do He was he was great You know he was a gym rat he he had the whole package. I mean he could. He could shoot the ball from distance. You know there wasn't a three point. Shot around when he was when he was playing in still average over. Forty points a game in college and You know it'd probably would've been fifty. Three point shouted has been out there and it's such as dad was coaching and he And he is he was a great athlete was wiry. he's tall. I mean you know six five six six And so we. When we went we went to camp with a with We hit it off right away and you know. We played a lot of one on one basketball. And there's a there's a tape out there Somewhere where he. And i are in the in the superdome with Dick cabinet okay. And it was for the cavs show and it.

So how were you accepted in those early days when all of a sudden here comes this. This darryl dawkins guy that's doing an in your face be honest.

We thought you guys you like it. That's our job and that's what we do. What was his style of play back then. I remember watching nba basketball and it looked like to me. It was very Stodgy i guess is the best word i can think of. I mean how a lot more team oriented that time you know and and at a point you just didn't care who scored as long as you want. You know those you've got a chance to play. I mean Boss was great just team players and us icago and we played with team plans. But i we may have had on the team. All according to what a lot of people talk but We all get along pretty well together. Yeah one of the things that i know that in when somebody goes out and says something they always talk about the articles that can be put on the opposition's bulletin board. I mean when you said some of the things you said. What was the reaction from your teammates. And also what about coaches who don't like their their players to be kinda show off you know anytime. I was playing. Yes but during the time i was playing it was just saying. Oh you got a big mouth meant. He's always talking transient. I was wondering first. Original trash talkers but my teammates had gotten used to be talking from practice and for riding the buses and planes. I always talked trash. But now you got the young guy. Company talking trash and dunkin. Oh who've been around five or six years. They didn't particularly care for it. But they started to say you crazy man off the hook so and just accepted me as that trying to censor you and if so how did they always tried to tell me what to say and what not to say. See where to go where not to go. I mean the sixers at times to tell me that any got any. And i was saying louis ain't going over there to get drugs those i'm gonna give me a girl and come back.

Well I knew it was gonNA be tough but but I knew I was ready for it because I always was playing guys that were older than I was and you know. So I I got experienced a lot earlier than I. A lot of guys would have. And So that's really helped me to branch on a vegas. Be Susceptible Edit. Tell me a little bit about what you found in Philadelphia. When you sign up because you were a second round pick what were the expectations of you Want you need to scoring because before they needed some. Of somebody because the before they went nine and fifty, six, seventy something like that and I came in with George McGinnis. You. Don't that I. You make the playoffs that that that first round. So you know it was it was something that. Was was well waiting for city Philadelphia and I felt good being apart of you know what was going on and How would you characterize in? Describe the talent in the NBA at that time world? Talent was unbelievable appeared went one hundred under the is you could you I would give it one, hundred and one. What type of style basketball today did they play more like with the big man being the instrumental player or? Like today with perimeter play yeah. No, it was always inside out. So you sort of all in it come out on downs outside and too. So but so back then you know you had to like did and determines the Darrell Dolphins and All kind of guys you know that. Tells you. Moses Malone. So you know it was it was inside out game big man does the ball birch the one thing I remember about that particular time from guys nate Thurman was a very good friend of mine and we used to have long talks about playing an NBA at that time and I always came away George Gervin I got to know a little bit as well. I always came away with they weren't only talented. They were smart athletes. No doubt about I mean you know how to head and? Take care of your body yet they make sure. You know you got your properous and You know realize that we'd be traveled on on commercially just like everyone else and we had to go ahead and. Clean California one night then you in new. York. The next night that you have to play the game. So you know you had to take care of yourself and and that was a big part of what the daughters. Tell me about those two seasons in the late seventies where you and George Gervin were number one and two in the League in scoring and you average twenty point three points per game over thirteen seasons in the NBA. But that seventy nine to eighty season with the clippers you average thirty points plus per game but tell me about the two of you as you watched him play. Then what did you see him? Joint A friend of mine did the thing about it? He he put me under his wing so He's GonNa Take Care of me a he did both ways you know can be on the basketball court squash going about fifty on me every time. And so I had to at least at least get forty nine know the. Big Brother. But he hit a plateau I remember Bill Russell and I because I was the broadcaster for the Sonics at a point when he was the coach of the Sonics up there, I asked him about his relationship with Wilt Chamberlain. A lot of people thought they didn't like each but they were like brothers and he said I knew I had to play wilt I couldn't just you know try to physically beat him because that wasn't going to happen but I had to be smarter than he was how did you approach the game? I froze a game by like. I did want. Big Men with my friends on my basketball team if you were to with the two guys and we was it to wasn't too well look at friends. We were. Doing against his all the. Training. So. You know we always made sure they made president. President President that. If I'm going to have a friend is going to be some alcoholic for Senate. I think than most people certainly remember when they heard that you would change your name from Lloyd to world, but they may not know the essence about that. What was the story behind it? I want to give you a chance to put it into perspective for them. Well everyone thought the changing my name is self proclaimed, but it was a self proclaimed to. Be From New York City from book APP on Dave Hurt Smith gave it to me. for doing three sixties slam don't sit going to the basket propelling. The ground so that a forty point to rugby league. get up there and this slammed that well down over anyone and they started calling me world while in New York. So I was like, oh so I said, if I implemented made it look ahead the chain, my name legal picnic from Lloyd B. Free World. I loved your quote the Fellas back in Brownsville gave me the nickname world when I was in junior high, they started calling me all world because all city all county and things like that weren't good enough finally, they just started calling me world. I'm still the same guy I was when I was with Lloyd. Exactly right. But you know this Is the only. People recognize you know God given talented. Gave you. you know I definitely appreciated that not. I know you I know you always admired Mohammed, Ali. Tell me a little bit about what you saw in him that you liked. Like like. Muhammad out late. This guy. He would say something he said knockout in the second round knockout in the second half. He talking trans like I. Okay. What he's GonNa do this you do that when he always does and the thing about it, he caught people were like Oh that man they're running about oil. But he backed up. And that's what I like. You know I did I did the fight that he lost to Ken Norton Senior and I'll never forget that I mean that's one of the moments in my career that just stuck with me because it was the first time he had ever lost his in San Diego. Remember and he broke his jaw in the second round a and but continued to fight to go the distance. There was something about the man's focus that I've never been able to put my finger on. You are professional athlete. Tell me what you saw.

"Work, at least in the bullpen definitely are Dami. Maybe you know, because they don't want to you want to set Alonzo down. You don't wanna sit strip down, but yeah, the whole bullpen, maybe sending them down for Syracuse up to Syracuse bring those guys what can what could possibly go wrong. You could think anyone you want. I think they're they could try anything right now. That'd be an improvement. Is it just a mess, if you know what? And now now it's I don't know what to do with, with this team. It's like just just I mean, I was literally screaming at the TV and, but I this put us out of misery, DSS, give the next home run. And let's move on. We don't want this to be fifteen sixteen innings and then loses ghetto with. And comply. It was interesting because it's happened so many times, but it was almost like that was the culmination of everything. To win. And I, I was wondering what made that one different? But I think it was just the brutal nature of what I mean you I mean, you, you get you get the lead. And then you add on a runs. Okay. He can give up a home run. It's not gonna hurt. And then he just oh man. And when gazelle men came in, I was like, no, no, no a matter time just a matter of time because I have no confidence in him. This. I'm down on my get haircut. If we just pick on a little thing with these guys. I'd say one thing if if van wagon wants to earn his stripes. You move Frazier, you move ARGUS, you gotta trade Wheeler because you ain't gonna bring him back. And if you get a good deal for synagogue do it, but don't trade, you know Alonzo and could afford. Oh and resort yo. And and Dom Smith unless down Smith like he's so funny to telecast, he said, oh, dogs bits in left field again, what, what is the surprise with this? The guy's hitting three thirty. I mean what, what was the surprise? He's into ten of I went out there. What are you gonna trade him that, you know, you should be hold on him too. But I wonder what they're gonna do trade deadline at the of July. It will be a lot easier. If you get a guy like Frazier and maybe get some value back for him because problem in the beginning of the year was McNeill Smith. They don't have positions to play. And I think that's what kinda sticks out to all the TV guys is where you play them. And they're all great hitters. But they could benefit from a National League team that code I think it comes next year. And if canal still on the team was like who's gonna take his contract at that's his position. And it can move. You've been Neil to second and leave him there. And then we'll see I it's because it's the Mets, the DA's probably will come when connotes contract is over. The way it is. That's the way it is. Eight seven seven three seven sixty six sixty six listen to us anytime, anywhere. Download the radio dot com app and favors today. And if you have Alexa, Google home, just say, play WFAN fan and one thing about the knick fans because all all all the fans like people say, I'm a range in Nick jet. You know, it's just bad news. It seems rooting for, but here's a fighting imagine if the Knicks not going to get it. But imagine if the Knicks get Durant, and some poor man has been in a coma for five years. Any wakes up is what's going on in the world sports. Well, the Knicks got Kevin Durant. You'll be what you've got Durant. Oh my God. After all these years of being horrible, we got Kevin Durant. Well, we got him, but he's not going to play the first you, why not always a trade thing, something? No he blew out his achilles. He won't be playing for year and then he'll be playing with. Come again. Right. You'll be like what? I remember when I went to Africa it seventy six Taga for. In Uganda, and I couldn't find out who won the World Series in, in seventy six and voice of America missed, wouldn't give it or whatever couldn't find anybody that Uganda. Hey any information of World Series? What does that? Okay. Never mind. So coming in a buddy sharing a cab back to back the Brooklyn, and he said, well, you've been asking everybody all over the world wants to cabdriver. Oh, who won the World Series ought read swept Yankee swept, a sweat the Yankees ho shoot. And then when I got home and tell my brother and I said, man, I was I didn't realize the Yankees swept. You don't even know the big news, what's, what's the big news? The nets traded. Dr J what? Who said the Philly. What did get George mcginnis back some draft choice known cash? Like what a ball player named Cassie said, no money. Money's. What is the same guy waking up in a coma to find out you got Durant, but he can't play for you because you've got a bad way. Why would they sign him if he blew out his achilles? And then, you know that's a whole nother discussion. So we'll see. We'll know by Sunday afternoon. What the deal is. But I want to hear from you guys, if you got some, you know, you know, if you went to the World Series in sixty nine win this just explain to people what it was like. Just explained to the listeners who aren't old enough to understand what sixty nine was all about. If you could put it in perspective, and just, just different time. Different and five wasn't the word back then. But it was a different poll, a different feel to city because the Mets a winning. Winning the team had never had a winning season. It was not like they, they won the Mets in Eighty-six really good. But you know the eighty five team was coming on. Well, we got something here it wasn't any indication, you know, like the Mets won ninety games of the year before, and like old, we're right there. We'll just you know g maybe we'll get to five hundred this year. Let's go to CJ Amman Holly CJ you're on the fan. Today. Is there? No. Oh I didn't hear you. What's going on? Sixty nine all the best that happened. Back to credible. Date. Meal bigger one day, which happened. Yeah. It was. It's, you know that that whole that whole decade was just never been like it never will be again, I don't think overnight. Back you forgot to mention. Wow. I didn't want to mention that. That's, that's, that's, that's a real dark side. I need to get into that, while those. Yep. I talked about the NBA I'm gonna tell you said, they could check yet. Through intrigue. Building. Tell you something I will be. Get everybody could be interesting to see teams. They play who back up to any teams can get two guys was like the golden match. This is good. One day, I expect, you know, it's going to come hot and heavy to be signing at the signing into signing, but I think the ran is I don't think he's I I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't sign on Sunday. And wait a few more days or something because I you know unless they're getting it all all the interviews done today. You know, I I don't know how quickly he's, you know, couldn't do it. Because everybody else I don't think this is an instance, where we're all going to wait to see what Durant us. You know, he's only going to go to so many teams. So why are we waiting on him? Let me let me get my team in order. I the first thing that Mike Flood Sunday. Looks like what would talk this situation? Q badge. Walker. So it's a championship and couldn't do it. Well, that's good pies. Read. Without I the other thing, you know, don't sleep on the Celtics. You're just because, you know, Kyrie's not coming back out Hawford leaving the be other defections. I'm sure Danny Ainge isn't going to say, oh, well, maybe in two years, we can get back now he's gonna make all kinds of deals to get that team. When you think about how close that team got to the final without Irving and Haywood and any come back the next year and not as good. I think that's more chemistry. I think without without KAI. We will do a lot better. But it's I agree with CJ. I don't think the Knicks never thought the Knicks were getting anybody. It's look from for me. Basketball standpoint and a branding standpoint. Do you want to go to the Knicks who stink, and you're trying to make them better? Or do you want to go to team Brooklyn? They're already in the playoffs, and you can make them better. You come to the Knicks, maybe, maybe you helped him become the eighth seed, and you bounced out of the first round, will you go to Brooklyn and maybe maybe a third seat. Maybe the second seat. Gonna be fun to watch him was. Bob in little ferry. Bob. You're on the fan could morning Tony. How are you? That's a great idea. You got this morning. Oiler problems at the Mets have an it's nice to maybe look back at some of the is it nice at times that the Mets have had there's a million things you could bring up about that time. But, you know, maybe the call is opening up a lot of different issues. I'd like to concentrate on one thing now. And that is, I believe the greatest I've ever seen in my life. And that was wron show boat is catch. And like you said people had to wear of what happened on the pictures of that, catch this a lot to it. Champ ski was unusual guy. He was. His personality wise you want him to run through a quick all he'll try to run through a brick wall for you that type of guy. A player he was he had to work on his phone Salaam, a good steak and he used the platoon with champ. Ski with a lefty. Righty, switch on it. So he really never had the right field position all his own about. I heard. Yeah. Yeah. And I know you. Oh, I said, I heard about it, and I really enjoy listening today compensation because I had never heard his point of view on that whole situation happened is he made against the Orioles, that I truly believe if he doesn't make the catch that conceivably could have employees World Series and may not have won the World Series. What happened is this Ron Swoboda seora alongside going into the gap into right center, he made up his mind because of his stubborn attitude. I'm going to catch that below. So he went running after the ball and as he got closer and closer. He realized he says, oh, my God, I don't know if I'm going to get up to this fall, and so, you know, sometimes you see these great catches where guy catches the he dives over the fence. Another guy. Catch the gymnastics. You know, everything. In the case of Ron Swoboda wrong to a boat in new at the last second. He says, I don't think I'm going to get this full, but he had already committed himself. He says, I gotta try for he does. And when you look at the picture of the, you know, when you see that catch, he extended himself is entire body in may there with his own out is far as he could stretch it and the ball went into the glove. I mean it had to be not only an extraordinary catch..

We don't restrictions didn't get in there and start coaching these guys. I gave you the number one team in the country nothing to say to him now. Let's go well then of course car starts to say something. What's ironic is in the eighties in the nineties and the two thousands and the two thousand ten <hes> <hes> he said plenty number one team too so but we were the first one we're the first one back in nineteen seventy five so obviously given how good of a coach she ended up being and your team that you're talking about right now finished ear what thirty two and one thirty one and one thirty one one in so arguably from a team that's accessible where like eight of the twelve players on the team played in the N._B._A.? Arguably the most successful person on that team was the lowest man on the Totem Pole who was picking up like the towels and passing out gatorade and making sure that everybody was k. was the most successful person on the entire team. You're talking about the players will like everybody on the team. If you count the coaches you count players coach k. ends up probably being the most successful out of all of them and he usually the lowest personal. Yes yes because he didn't suit up couldn't play with us and we never know what kind of play was. He didn't get a coach lot. He was glass. I will tell you that I have another friend from high school was also in the N._B._A.. School at that time and and became a friend and coach K.'s and ask them to play on his intermural team whether it and guess who the number one team in the inner merely he's seventy five was that was coach Casey okay. They Kinda Waltz through that group is at who are these guys aged guys pretty good. I think that maybe my favorite story hearing that coach cages join an intramural team at Indiana just absolutely like Ran Russia on all these undergraduates so I gotta thank coach K. Because Coach to Catholic school and so coach knew that Catholic school kids had a little better <hes> grit or <hes> sustainability or whatever you want to call it to get through arming Ma and so he continued to look for private school kids <hes> to come to army and coach nine. My senior was still coach at Army Senegal see me play and didn't play very good that day. In the sky went back and tell him he's not really good enough to play army <hes> but at least you knew who I was that was in December and then by the time march rolled around. I'd had a good year. We sent him some new film. <hes> I became the third choice for my position mission 6-foot-5 guard forward <hes> two kids from Indiana turned him down. I was the third choice he didn't tell me that at the time and I got Scholarship Indiana p trigger Vich was one of those kids. He turned down peak played for U._C._L._A.. <hes> won the championship in seventy three seventy five with John Wooden <hes> and then became a high school coach in Indiana when the State Championship <hes> about ten years ago and I broadcast that game live around State TV that triggers individuals coaching <hes> knowing that <hes> he didn't have a chance playing Erik Gordon and North Central High School and sure enough he beat them. <hes> and I saw trick bitch about three years ago and you Chicago Buddy of mine owns a covers up there and we took him to dinner and I bought trigger steak dinner. I said thank you very much for going U._C._l._A.. Because if you'd have gone to Indiana note we'd ever hear me. Did you always WANNA go to Indiana was the dreamer Amen South then go notre dame and so we used to play the sectional tournament at Notre Dame in the Christmas tournament. All the high schools get together and Oh was so much fun playing Austin Carr Played Notre Dame and and so the Notre Dame culture would watch the tournament of course they saw me and my high school coach called me on a class in January. He says come down to my office. I have to talk to you and I said what's up. He said Notre Dame just called the athletic director. They're offering a full scholarship to Notre Dame. He said don't have to decide today but I wanNa let you know I couldn't hold this information from you. You decide the end. The you WanNa go to Notre Dame. You're going to get a full scholarship and then it's like oh my gosh that's every kid southbound dream to go to Notre Dame and so the season ends and I go to the bank with banquets at the end of the year where they they'd have dinner and people from the town would be invited they hand out awards and Austin Carr scored sixty four points in the N._c._A._A.. T._A. Tournament Dayton Ohio and there's still N._C._A._A.. Record introduced him as a great graduating senior nature's me as a prize recruit local kid does good comes Notre Dame and I stood up in a way to everybody who still need and the next day they fired the coach Johnny d it was the coat they fired him because he had to get through the banquets and they hired digger Phelps and Moose call and most krause's athletic director Moose calm in the office digger. Nobody knows who the hell you are. We got this local kid yeah. He's he's a good kid. He's from school right across the street from the campus. The whole town knows him. He's had a good highschool career. Bring this kid in here. Get the town behind you this just perfect for you to get get this thing on and tear looked his new boss. He said he said Heck. No he said I play East Coast Ball. I don't want any mid west. Kids calm up telling me can't come and they did. They called up so I'm sorry we've had a coaching change and you're not able to come to Notre Dame anymore. I said Oh man bummer are and <hes> and so night is getting Indiana job the exact same time and so now he's in Bloomington and unbeknownst to me talking to the string of guy until guy named during Nichols going to purdue and calls my high school coach and says what happened that kid does not good enough go to army and he said well coach he's second team. Allstate scored twenty nine points a game <hes> he said semi some film so he sends some film and look pretty good it went down to visit and <hes> and I got back home and I said coach so beautiful awful place but George McGinnis and Steve Down and go there and they're a lot bear Niamh and they never offered me a scholarship. I can't pay my own way. My Mom's a receptionist and <hes> he said well if they offer scholarship. Would you go to Indiana. I said absolutely absolutely said now look. He said you may never play. He said you may just sit the benadryl career there <hes> you're a little skinny and you're not real fast and you can't play defense but other than that you know you're okay <hes> and I said absolutely I go to India just to get a degree. If I got to play icing on the cake so needless to say I got to go I I got to play and on some great teams and and and a thirty three or T._v.. Career after that I mean it was the right choice so so then I see digger years go by and I see digger you know he and neither good buddies and we run each other and digger comes over he says John He says I made a mistake. I should've kept you at Notre Dame. I said now digger you did it worked out just fine. Indiana was very good to me. You played them in college right. Didn't you like play them. Every year. We played at Notre Dame. I saw more year and we beat them. <hes> we played them nor day my senior year we beat him in my three year career. Freshmen were knowledgeable and college. That was the last year nineteen seventy-two that freshman couldn't play <hes> in my three occurred Indiana. We lost one home game and that was the Notre Dame hey my junior year and we never lost a big ten game in three years at home so that's how Indiana used to be <hes> when he was home. Game is like what the heck is. Earth fall is help freezing over. I mean in this happen this happen 'cause I never had never lost the big ten game at home in three years and then the next thirty two in Oh so long game that year so four years row India narrow loses a home big gung so in a two year span you're to Indiana went basically was sixty three and one sixty three Enron and the best player that would have been on that team left campus early which was Larry Bird so technically your team could have had Larry Bird on it and. The end possibly not only finished two years in a row undefeated but also had one of the best basketball players of all time who wouldn't have seen the court for the most part while that's correct except for the purdue game <hes> later in the year go broke his arm purdue <hes> them he broke his arm couldn't play the last seven games so <hes> coach decides to put me in the starting lineup. Instead of a sub takes place well. There's a little little subtraction there <hes> <hes> but we won seven games in row so that's not all bad <hes> and then Kentucky.

"Mike north Carmen to Falco Chicago sports talk stars ESPN one thousand pairs them up for the couple. Little hump day this Wednesday night. Friday 'cause we got tournament games. We're getting you set. We've talked a lot about the brackets are picks are coming up so far in our best players in the first couple of weeks. Mike hasn't given out a loser yet who went on to. And it's strong stuff talk about some of the dark horses. Some of the upsets that we think might happen. A couple of upset picks coming up here for you. What about Virginia? I mean, you know, made history last year he had to make the futures bet. You know, if somebody gave you the next decade, Mike and said, you know, Willie sixteen beetle one again, I doubt many people would say, yes, it's such an outlier but Virginia was that team last year? It finally happened. How much motivation is that for Virginia as the number one seed in the south going into this tournament? I think that puts more tightness on them. They're not note for the coming through in the big games or coming through in the clutch. I mean Virginia is a good defensive team and good defensive teams eventually will get outclass by team set complete. Not equal defense, maybe a little less, but can score and have talent. And I like a coach Bennett's philosophy. But to get you out of the way, I don't know. And to lose to sixteen is a stain on his resume or on his shirt you ever spilled coffee on your shirt and then try the tide. It can't even get it out. I have that's a staint Tyke kicking out the tide sticking working on that being the I know. Yeah. I mean, it's just never going to work. You can put it in all the Clorox. You can do whatever you gotta do you could combine them all he lost to a sixteen. That's on top of debts near the top of his resume. He's an excellent coach. But he was unfortunate. It was terrible last year. You wonder if if hunter wasn't hurt if that would have been different last year, he's back for them this year, we shall see. I I actually think they they'll respond who the heck knows like Mike always says this thing is a crap shoot. Why? I got MSU Virginia Texas Tech in North Carolina. And my final four what's your final four? Look like my I find a forest got Michigan in the west. I got Duke in the east. I got Oklahoma in the south. I got Iowa State in the mid west. I think that Iowa State and supporting it just because they're different seed law. I don't wanna pick jock. I just wanna have fun. If I lose I lose the people that make fun of you on Thursday. We'll be dead by Sunday with therabreath matter. So it doesn't matter. I just wanna have some fun and by picking picking to chalk in the tournament. I'll never win. But I gotta go with my gut feeling I've loved Oklahoma. You told us that a couple of weeks ago. Yeah. On crew Grinnell Iowa State. I don't ask me about my love for the big big twelve all of a sudden, I got Duke Michigan. I got your ACC, and I got your big dead. And then I got Iowa State win. But man, if you really realistic at it at the end of the day, I'd be stunned if Duke loss, but then again, I saw Patrick Ewing loose, right? Exactly. And you I mean, you talk about a dominant player you mentioned that with your can mean earlier today. The the intimidation factor. Not only is I in great. But especially after way, they what he did in the way he played last week when every team gears up to try to stop him. He's still a visceral teams in the ACC tournament. I mean there there is something to that intimidation factor when you're still talking about college athletes. Yeah. I think that basically he's few and far between. Yeah. There's not many guys that intimidate you anymore. There's not the big boned at George mcginnis type of guys. Would would stand der dare you to drive the lane? He's wanted to goes guys. You look at him. He's got the Thais. He's got the Manson lamps. Yeah. You know what? I mean. We're just stares at you dares. You to come near him. Zone. He's he's what he is. Is he's pressure on both ends, you know, sometimes you get a guy. That's really good off. It's not as good defense or the other way around this guy. He's coming at you all the time defensively. I'll steal the ball. Defensively are black offense of duck. It offense of we. I'll throw the prettiest bounce PS. I've ever throw. We look like magic Steve bash credible. Dow Dow was the play of the night. I didn't care how many points. He scored a deck. That's not taught. That's a gift. It was amazing. You're right. Aren't a couple of plays. I like your I've had a lot of Belmont love recently. They got Mizuki back last night. You saw what a difference? He made I'd going against the big ten here. So maybe that's not gonna be all that popular. But I'll tell you. If you look at the T ranking scores from Feb one no team in the nation has been more efficient and effective field goal percentage than Belmont. They've had been one of the better offensive teams in the country here in the last six weeks or so I'm gonna roll with Belmont plus three against barrow. That's a good one. I I not taking the game. But I would lean your way. Okay. I also like the ducks against Wisconsin. I just think Dana Altman, I is such a good coach. And I think he'll be able to get a nice game plan ready for Wisconsin. And the ducks guard the three point line. Well, and it's one thing that Wisconsin relies on good looks from three because Ethan hat makes such a difference inside. I think they'll have a good game plan for making sure Wisconsin doesn't beat them too much from distance. And I think Oregon can pull the upset. I liked them getting two points against Wisconsin. What do you like, Mikey? What do you happen to Bowe? Ryan retired man. He was rolling. He was unbelievable. Sorry. I love the guy. Unbelievable, wisconsin. They I don't you know, he was the figurehead of that of that team. And guess what is worked out? Now, you you have Oregon. I've heard a lot of talk talk and Oregon, I wouldn't touch either one of those games. So I'm not gonna dispute what you got. I'm rooting for you on the one by Friday organic Belmont. Okay. Now mine I is purpose. Ellison playing in this game. I don't think so it's Denny crum's plane. I don't believe so it's not gonna stop can Stein. Okay. I'm calling with Minnesota. Plus defy because the Patino are coaching Patino, the Pitino's. Okay. And I believe me. Dad's got author secret. I love that angle. That's great. Yeah. It'd be that's it. Hey, dad. Do you have three hours to talk and watch film? Sure. I'll be over the past. I worry about it. Yeah. I'll bring down, you know. And don't forget the cannolis. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli. That's right. We got do that Carmen. We're high sides if we don't do that. What are we going to do? And then yeah, I've taken Montana over Michigan. Plus fifteen. I'm sorry. Their fifteenth. That's supposed to suck in Michigan. Plus two is supposed to be elite. You should be given twenty two twenty three twenty four. They made a mistake with the point spread. They showed me their hand. I've taken Montana plus the fifteenth and last, but not least I have Texas Tech. Yes. I was just saying Texas Tech. You know, what muni and that crate team up there? I'm taking Texas Tech minus the fourteen and where the hell are they now I just lost my Texas Tech, by the way, the Texas Tech has northern Kentucky. That's it Kentucky who a lot of people seem to like. And you know what? Yup. I'm gonna take Minnesota Montana and Texas Tech love it and congress got Belmont or gotten. There you go, folks. This is what we do. Happy wagering. Everybody. Good luck in your brackets, Mike. We'll see you next week. Enjoy. Have a good tournament. Alright. Thanks, Erica, Strauss. Ski thanks to Adam delicate job well done. We got tournament games coming up, and we'll be back with the odds. Couple next week. Remember, I'm on Twitter at karma Delco Mike is at north to northern how fun everybody enjoy the tournament. Good luck with your brackets. And we'll see you next week on ESPN one thousand.

So if you're driving home, you drive it home with the today is a matter of fact, so the high of Fairleigh Dickinson in front of you will start at six forty. So the game will be on the fan, and you can check it out as the gets under way. Mike in Howell. New jersey. What's up Mike going on what's happening? Design on talk real quick. You know? I I compare them to he's not a household name yet. But he's on his way whose Julius Randle. Listen, I liked Randall coming out and he's really starting to develop now. No question. Really worked down. But that's but that's that's a good player. But that's not a generational player. That's a good player. I mean, it's like you said earlier generation. Really like listening. We didn't see listen. We didn't know we did not the freak was going to develop into this quarter. I mean, we didn't see this coming. I mean, you know, we now we didn't see him in college. I mean, we didn't seem in Europe. We didn't know what he was. And if we'd seen him, then he probably didn't show a lot of these signs. But the problem is with Zion is at six seven there were limitations. If you're gonna play like a big, man. That's that's the question. Can you see him? With that size show, a mobility that might be lie. His body type that kind of thing can you see, and I don't I don't see that with him. I right now. Now, the best feature I see with him. He's got great hands. He's got really good answer. He really does. Very good. And that's a positive because forward. The power forward. He is accepting. No. But listen really on. They're really on those centers anymore anyway. Because now they're becoming as much guys. We're going to be outside is in. But you're going to play against the power guy. The problem is the guy is going to play against a lot bigger. That's going to be the problem. And the question is how does he play against that guy? Who's going to be a lot bigger than us? Get one more in in Manhattan. Go ahead. Jeff. Yeah. Mike great show is thank you. What's happening? Questions if I make on Zion. Yes. How would you? Compare him to George mcginnis. I'm looking to huge body with six eight is you'll remember. Yes. Science six seven both Bigalow. Post games outside shot. That's why think about George mcginnis. I haven't thought about George George mcginnis was a pretty good player. You know that he really really was and. He was a muscle guy. There's no I mean, he could shoot a little bit. But McGuinness was a good player. It's funny. Mcguinness? I don't I don't see exactly McGinn mcginnis. This game was kind of odd to be honest with you. I'm trying to come up with a guy that compare them to Tisdale's, not bad, the Irving. I don't see I think behinds has got a good IFA for basketball. And he's usually got a pretty good opinion. I think he just was alluding to the dunks. I didn't hear his whole comment there. I know he compare them. Someone said he compared to Julius Irving I think he's just talking about the ferocity and the author artistry of the dunks is what I think he was talking about because I don't see the comparison and body type other than that. Dr J guy was small go grew with. Grew went from like six one overnight the six six seven. Let me get this. Then we'll take a quick break. Rick, rich and Kentucky, what's up rich? Mike, Donald Saint John's alum what's happening. Got the pleasure of meeting you when I was coaching your kids at summer camps. You're such gentleman. I want to thank you for how you treated me back then. Anyway, I think I have the best example ahead. Horseracing question. I think that Jon is Anthony Mason, what do you think about that? I think he's a banner offensive. I think he's a lot better offensive player. Anthony was not a bad player. I mean, he really wasn't. He's a good passer. He was a good passer. He was under rated but body types. I think you know, it's interesting, I think body type because Anthony Mason had little quickness and Zion does too. I I liked the body type. I think science got more big man moves than Anthony Mason, does to be honest with you. But I on the body body type. You're not bad. It's not bad on the body. Type. Anthony, Mason had athleticism is no question. What's the horse racing question? Well, I'm working hartsdale now. So I was wondering if you're ever out. Can you work in Tipton is that who you working for? Taylor. Mason tailor-made. Okay. So you. Yeah. I I I used to be a teacher at Cardozo high year. Yes. I do the sale. But when I usually by phone, so I don't usually go to the sale. I'll these have someone there who will check the horse for me if I want to vet them, and I have someone checking my trainer will check him for me. And then if we pass everything I would I would get on the phone. I don't usually get to the sale doing some. But I don't usually on those. So that's what I usually do. But yes, I still antenna telomere. Very good operations matter of fact, back.

But you know, you look stat sheet Todd it's you don't five guys score. And. Production from the for the bears and just doing doesn't get free throw line. Dairies? Feel good start seven points doesn't score anymore after that. And you just played uphill all second half. And yet close she had a chance to detect with the Bradley shot got it. Okay.

But, you know, Cal Cal gave them everything. They had just came up a bit short show the season ends here today in Las Vegas. I just not enough bullets in the chamber offensively thirty four percent from the field. It's tough when you do that. So the bears Taya season-low and points and at the same time, they actually hold a pack twelve opponent to a season low fifty six so back to back games. The opponent Stanford scored fifty nine Colorado scored fifty six those are the two lowest scoring games by the opponents of the defense. Really good good down the stretch that the energy. Was terrific on the defensive end. Are you probably could not have asked anymore. Colorado. Turn it over twenty three times. That's that's a season high for a a a Pac twelve opponent against the bears the bears get six blocked shots. So that that ended the court you can't complain at all. I mean, they did a terrific job. Now at the offensive end got to work some things out going forward know, Matt Bradley, seventeen points, and he takes the big shots. You had the big one at the end that could've tied. But he's the guy you want to take take that shot. Connor the shot wasn't with him today. But you're going to go in and out with shots. He did he did it defensively. So just need more. Again, you mentioned a rich tend to nothing bench points. I mean, it's tough. To only have your starter score. You need some contributions from the bench and not not always scoring. But you need something from the bench, and that's an area with three guys coming in. And maybe one or two more in the spring bears will have a fuller a more complete roster going forward. Yes. A lot of pieces to build around.
