"Math these our foundation of our modern society. And they're cool. They're fun they're connected directly to wonder they're all kinds of practical reasons but they're also to me all kinds of personal and emotional reasons. I want people to share that. We'll cory cory for once. i just. I have to disappoint you. We don't actually have someone here today to talk to us about science technology engineering math education. I'm already disappointed. Yes yes but back in march. I got the chance to talk with basketball. Legend people legend kareem abdul-jabbar as part of los angeles's city of stem conference and we bring organizations from the los angeles basin together to talk about science technology engineering math education. What's cool is los angeles. People don't realize it has a lot of aerospace and spacex is bare again building rockets hiring all kinds of science technology engineering and math professionals. We have sea ports. We have factories. We have all these things and so apparently kareem didn't really have much interest in science until he got to college and for some reason he took a physics course and went. Well i can do this. This is this is pretty cool. So he started something called camp skyhook and this is what you'd call an immersive experience for people in fourth and fifth grade and they go outdoors. They go to the angeles national forest. If you ever banners beautiful these beautiful trees very tall you might think of. The los angeles basin is being semi arid mountains. i mean. it's just a beautiful forest and so they go up there for most of a week and they use ipads to study the plants. Botany and the biology of the ecosystems. They learn what safe to eat. What safe to drink when you're in the wilderness which is just empowering cool stuff and they learn how to get around by watching the stars by studying stars. It's just fundamental cool outdoor stuff that everybody should be exposed to so kareem abdul-jabbar has taken it upon himself to sponsor camp. Skyhook this week. We're going to let you hear my conversation with kareem kareem and then corey and i will have a little more information about camp skyhook on the other side so listen in and stick around a cool and i am looking forward to hearing it.

Bandits, Not Boko Haram, Responsible for Latest Kidnappings in Nigeria

"And welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew miller on join first of all from a by the journalist chico oduor who has followed the story of nigeria's kidnappings since the boko haram raid on jabbar festival out into this program. Is this spate of attacks on schools. There has been in the last few days in wake some lodge some small some successful some not. In the general scheme of things how common have attacks on schools like this. Become in nigeria. They've become shockingly common to be honest. it's almost at the point. where were the nigerian. Public is feeling fatigue. And that's really scary. Because dis should be front burning stories but sometimes you get people not even wanting to even know the details because we've heard this before so the attack that happened. This past monday was actually the fourth that happened since december and then last year there are several attacks and what we're seeing of course is that these attackers are no longer really affiliated with the boko haram islamist movement. It's now just bandits. Criminals are looking for money and this has become a very very lucrative business. To be honest money is being funneled to rescue these hostages. And that's what's keeping this thing going. I mean from between june. Two thousand eleven march last year at least eighteen million dollars was paid to kidnappers as ransom. So for example in kara with three hundred. Schoolboys kidnapped this past december. We learned that some of the parents started to negotiate with the kidnappers. The boys when they were abducted and taken to the forest of northern nigeria. That's cat seen a state in the northeast. So the kidnapped boys. They started to make contact with their parents. You know with their cell phones and so they're talking to their parents and they're saying bring this amount of money in order for us to be freed so the parents started trying to find ways to do that dropping bags off here and there at designated points so in that case we did see parents collecting money fundraising amongst themselves. Also we're seeing professional gauche kind of coming to the fore and this especially we see with boko haram related kidnappings. So that's how we're saying that we're seeing this in the form of the parents themselves. So it was so desperate raising money for their children and also professional shooters because this is a huge market business. That has come forth win. Stories like this. Get reported beyond nigeria. Obviously the media tends to frame them in the context of boko haram because everybody thinks back to that huge kidnapping of two hundred and seventy six goals from sheberghan in bona state. Many of whom still haven't been found again but if this is now more just you're straight up and down ransom seeking banditry. Do we know if there is any overlap between the bandit gangs and boko haram. Is there any possibility that these bandit gangs are being used as fundraising proxies if you will you know again. I think the pentagon where the kidnapping takes place. Those possibilities do exist for example. The one that happened in december with three hundred. Schoolboys boko haram responsibility. But i'm of the belief that it was not boko haram and what's happening in that part of nigeria. There's been a lot of artistic gold mining and so some people feel that that industry which is a very murky industry extraction of gold is somehow contributing to the rise and kidnappings in northeastern nigeria. Sorry northwestern nigeria which is where it happened in december but casino which is where. We saw the kidnappings in the past. Few days is not part of that. So we haven't really seen much bokram activity in kaduna. In the past few years to be honest do a has been a hotbed of just bandits. Guys who literally take up residence in the forest and for the past five years. We've been seeing these kidnappers first of all attacking motorist going from the buddha kaduna expressway. That's been their operation for the past four years. So if you're trying to go up to do now which is a two hour journey. A journey from asia. You could get kidnapped. But now they've gone and started targeting children but it's the same group of people and they have no bocom affiliation at all to be honest so they went from kidnapping motorist and they target sometimes. The huge lorries of passengers coach buses. That take people back and forth. They could also target taxes that tend to be carrying more well to do nigerians. But now they've realized that kidnapping children it's more

Nigeria kidnappings: What is Boko Haram?

"In almost any country the armed abduction of a single child from its school would be a huge story a crime as rare as it is cruel in nigeria. In recent years the armed kidnapping of entire classrooms has become wretchedly commonplace and recent weeks have seen a further significant uptick of kidnap raids own schools by motorcycle mountain bandits. Dozens of children and several teachers have been taken. Some returned some not the tactic of large-scale school abductions was made infamous by boko haram the islamist militia. Which has spent much of this century menacing northeast. Nigeria in two thousand and fourteen boko haram generated global headlines with the kidnapping of two hundred and seventy six schoolgirls in tabuk in bona state. Many are still missing. It is not clear if any direct role boko haram has played in these most recent kidnappings. It is clear that nigeria has a serious problem. But how does nigeria solve it. Is this crime or terrorism over both and is the remedy policing or counter insurgency. This is the foreign desk. But now they've realized that kidnapping children it's more lucrative. That's literally what this is about. Just where does the money comes from. It really shows you how desperate nigerians have become just to make money the economy ever. Since buhari came into power. It's really gone. Downhill and people are taking desperate measures to make ends meet in fact in the northwest especially. Now it's extremely concerning as the groups have multiplied in terms of numbers. They've grown in terms of strength that mean the jihadist groups are trying to make inroads so we could have a more difficult situation in the northwest. But that doesn't seem to be many a sense of urgency about dealing with these. There is a certain amount of violence. That's involved here. It's it's a form of war not not peacekeeping but that violence has to be located in a broader political strategy of achieving reconciliation. And unless you have that strategy in place more violence almost always just makes things worse rather than better and welcome to the foreign desk.

Does Lebron James Deserve More MVP Awards?

"Let me tell you what. Lebron james is notorious for a other than skipping town. Go to another team other than that you know what. He's famous for taking his foot off the gas to a regular seasons when he went back to cleveland. You remember that he was like i don't mean to have the number one seed. I don't need to kill myself during the regular season. that's why he didn't win. Mvp's he undersea deserve to have more last year. Janas was the mvp unwanted convincingly and overwhelmingly. Why bernie 'cause the year before. John is wanted and lashio. Jonah's had better numbers than the year before. And the milwaukee bucks had the best record in the nba. Lebron james was really shocked because he had some false narrative going on that he was the mvp. Come on bernie has some humility. You don't have to do that. Politics will knock it you an. Mvp saying goes true. Greatness needs no self promotion. And we've talked about this probably at least once in every show we've done robin that is lebron is incredibly insecure about his legacy. If he's really the king what is he. Allow these things to get under his skin. He did it last. September when he lost out on the mvp then he says well. What really pisses me off. Allie got sixteen votes out of. That's what really pisses me up. Look if you want to continue to die in this hill lebron. You're going to continue to be seen as petty and al kuzina says the mvp's very political award. Yeah so is the mvp and major league baseball in the nfl. Probably the nhl and the heisman trophy right on down the line. Linda brown goes on to say. I don't sit around thinking about it or crying about it. That's what he just said that's all. He does time even when they won the championship last year and i gave him top credit. Lebron fan never will be better given top credit. Because the lakers are a franchise of eras you had to wilt air the jabbar air the magic the kobe and shaq era negative lebron air to win a championship and when he did the first thing he does say i want my damn respect do what he. What are you constantly begging for. What exactly is it. What happened in because you know why bernie it tells you all you need to know. He knows deep down. He's not the best player all time he knows his michael jordan. That's why it's always looking for these other things to add to his resume. That's why he he wants an mvp and you know what he sees now. He seems j. He sees james harden in brooklyn without a kevin durant and they've won fourteen out of fifteen or whatever the number is bernie and and he's looking going and when a went out to lakers stumbled he's not going to win the

Your dad was a frustrated jazz musician. Who had aspired play with the real band at one point. I did play with real bands. Never got to play with the professional in one band that he admired but Yeah he he had been a professional musician for a while but Nor to make ends meet and to raise his family. My dad had to be a police officer And you said that one of the many ways that you and coach wooden were a little bit different. He was a big band fan. You were more of a coal train. Us more into the modern jazz fan coaches from from the swing era In ours. Into you know i'm basically a bebopper. Yeah and you related jazz to how you played basketball. And how he coached talk a little bit about what you call basketball jazz. Best goal in john have a similarity in that The the people who who practice it have to really be aware of each other in order to to play basketball perform jazz. You have to know what the people you're performing with are doing and react to those choices that they make in time So it's it's very interesting that You know the mentality of it is is basically the same thing. You're in a spin spontaneous situation and you have to react to each other so there's a combination of What he talked about preparedness and improvisation. You're all at the same time that's cool. Will you talk about how tragedies and losses brought the two of you even closer together in your friendship. Did he have a particular philosophy about coping with tragedy and healing coach.

"And i were able to put all the any rancor It was put behind us. Yeah and you say that coach wooden would have been disappointed if you didn't talk about some of his mistakes or misjudgments in the book. Did he ever say louis kareem. You know maybe. Cool it on the racial talk or your friendship with mohammed ali or even the conversion to islam. Did he ever have any criticisms or anything though. No really coach never criticizes he. Sometimes he would question a seem one. No what. I thought process was emotional. How we were Dealing with whatever it might be but the no he he never gave any you know he never dictated anything And you had your own interesting spiritual journey that led you to islam. He was of course a devout midwestern christian. Did you guys ever talk about religion. You know we had talked about religion. One time on a on a road trip we were in the mid west. I think we between ohio state and notre dame on a bus and started talking about religion ner everybody got a chance to tell everybody else on the team what they thought about their own personal faith and you know their opinion on faith. In general coach wooden thought it was a very positive Discussion he kind of mentored it but he didn't try to dominate it Yes the few so questions later on. He said that he nearly retired after you left. Ucla why did he almost retired. When you left. I think that you know it must have been fun for coach trying to win the ncaa tournament. The those those first two wins. Ucla was underdogs. They weren't expected to win after i got there. Ucla was expected to win every game. And it really took the sense of discovery in and enjoyment out of it you know instead of playing the win Coach had to costa team not to lose. And that's totally different mindset and one that's not as enjoyable and when you graduated from ucla and went into the nba. I have to think. Was it an adjustment to go from a coach. Who was telling you that. Winning was in everything guy who cared about your long-term well-being off the court and your development as a person to go from that to playing for a big professional money-making organization that perhaps treated you a little bit more like a chess piece or or asset. Will you know professional basketball is about winning. That's why it exists. So you know it's it's a totally different set of circumstances from college and you had a remarkable twenty year career in the nba. Due in no small part. You say to coach wooden training. What did he teach you that. Help you extend your longevity as a pro player..

Interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

"The game, the structure, the style of the game that you played back to the basket center right trying to get high percentage shots closer to the basket that game has been completely forgotten, and there's very few. There's nobody who plays the center position the way you did with the back to the basket and it's like try to get the highest value shots the furthest away. But three pointers as much as you can does this style interest you disinterested you look down on it. You say you don't know how to play the game properly. Well, you know there, there are different theories about how to play the game but I think getting high percentage shots really makes a lot of sense, but it also has to dovetail with your defensive strategy also. So a great team like the Bill Russell. F- Celtics. Bill was able to to stymie any shots around the hoop and. His team. Would run and get high percentage shots down down court, and that was a winning strategy era. I mean, nobody's playing center. The way you did that is totally gone now. I think. So but that doesn't mean that someone cat had that type of skill and still come in effect the game. In a meaningful way, we talked earlier today. One of the things you said, the eighty five finals against the Celtics was one of your most important moments as a player. One of your crowning moments as a player you were the. MVP that year you guys won the Lakers one but you had to go through the Memorial Day massacre where you guys got crushed by like forty points a game over in the middle of third order and a down moment and I lived in Boston at that moment, it looked like are going to go on to destroy them. How did you come back to win and why do you think of that as one of your crowning moments as a player that series? Well I think that? What happened to me personally in that series was. Once, we made it into the finals I kind of relaxed. and. So I went into that first game thinking that. The worst is over and you know the the worst was yet to happen. So. It kind of woke me up and made me realize that I had to kick my game up a couple of levels in order to. Finish off what we started out to do because we lost. In eighty four to the Celtics and Gabe a game away. And that ended up being the the crucial game. How could you go into? A series against the Celtics who had Larry Bird who series plate you know clearly one of the great players of that time how you Gonna Like Oh, we got this. No. I didn't think that we got this but for me personally, I figured I've done my job where we're in the finals. Things. Think things will be alright and they work. One. Of the one of the chapters, one of the parts of the book that I really thought was really interesting. You talk about athletes and what they must do with how they have role models at the happy aware that they are role models and you say we can't pretend athletes are influencing our children's thinking and behavior. So we must demand higher standards from them like it or not college and Professional Sports. Machines are turning them into role models, and if they aren't willing to accept that responsibility as part of the contract, then they should seek another profession. Strong position. A little bit about why you feel that way when you went through that life right superstar High School Athlete College, Athlete, and you know the way that superstar athletes from a teen age are coddled. They are given you know love for their athletics points for their character. Society is not training them to be role models, but then they become big college players big prosed and we expect them to be role models. Are they even ready for that? I don't know you know for me. Being a black American and in the era that I grew up in all black. realized. That They would be judged by the actions of. Any problem. Black Person. And so. That burden. Was something that that you assumed. Soon, as you've got to do anything in a in a prominent fashion, you assume that burden because you knew that. All black people would be. Judged on whatever it was that you did and he's screwed up A. Set, the race. I mean that's absolutely right and you talk about that I came to realize that the lew alcindor that for the younger folk that was his name forty, fifty years ago the lew alcindor everyone was cheering. Was it really the person they wanted to be they wanted me to be the clean cut example of racial equality the poster boy for anybody from any background regardless of race religion or economic standing could become an American success story to them. I was living proof that racism was a mythological beast like Jack. Elope when when the audience is feeling like that right I assume the media is part of it. How do you? How do you rebel against that? Well. You just have to show them that they're wrong and. That that is not the case, there's a whole lot that has to be done. I into earlier. Right after Dr King was assassinated, I was involved in a demonstration on UCLA's campus and people. Would just standing there. and. It was a silent. stood. There for an hour in silence and some of US had signs and a number of times people came up to me and said, you're getting the opportunity to play in the NBA. What do you demonstrating for and they did not understand how these two things did not relate to each other at all the fact that I, I was getting opportunity to play in the NBA did not mean that what happened to Dr King was a tragedy and a crime and the.

Nick Cannon out at Viacom, keeps deal with Fox

"I'm Kim, masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as my usual banter buddy on the business, Matt Bellamy and Matt this is very unfortunate situation that has developed There's a sort of a back and forth in the black media world, their business antisemitic incidents most recently I think is nick. Cannon was on a podcast, endorsed some clearly antisemitic views about Jews controlling the media, and whatever the these are old tropes. I have to say to her credit. jemele hill weighed in saying this kind of talk is unacceptable as did Kareem abdul-jabbar and a column in the Hollywood reporter, but this nick cannon incident he led to him, being fired by Viacom CBS a, he initially clapped back, and said you know. The CBS was treating him unfairly, and then seemed to have major change of heart and apologized and said he was gonNA learn, and he was sorry for the hurt he had inflicted, but. What's interesting to me? Is that while he fired? He had this show on vh. One called wild and out and other things going on CBS. He also is the host of the mass singer on Fox and you know. How surprised are you that Fox said that apology is completely acceptable. We're hanging with you on the mass singer. Yeah, I mean this really does point to an interesting dichotomy that's emerging especially when you look at a lot of the heightened sensitivity around these issues of hate, speech and inappropriate comments that have really come about over the past six to eight months. Fox seems to be an outlier here and a lot of people have put it in monthly. Yes, a lot of people have pointed to Fox News, which obviously is the home of many incendiary comments? Tucker Carlson was recently forced to go on one of those quote, unquote preplanned Fox News vacations when it was revealed that his lead writer was revealed to be posting anonymously on racist and homophobic and sexist websites. This is always been you know. The Fox News is separate from Fox Broadcasting Corporation which is run out of La. It's all owned by the Murdoch's, but Fox's always positioned itself as we have the LA operation. And then we have this Fox News thing, but here you have. Have a very specific incident on a Fox show with the host of not just a Fox show the most popular show on Fox and the Murdoch seemed to be okay with it. It sends a message that this isn't just Fox News separate from the La Company. This is all one company in the Murdoch's seemed to be endorsing a very tolerant. Shall we say view of this kind of speech? Yeah, the MURDOCHS ARE GONNA Murdoch. You know they they run the company. It's theirs and. Walk is possibly even more conservative than his father Rupert I'm not saying that a person can't apologize. Learn but I think when you make comments like this that nick cannon made. You. You don't just return with no without missing a beat. It's like okay, thanks. That's great. That just feels to me like it needs a little bit more of a pause. And why don't you go away for a little while and seek the truth and come back when you you feel that you know there's been a an interval I. Don't know if you reversed the situation and he were white host. Making these kinds of comments about say black people. That host would still have a job. That's an interesting question I. Don't know, but what is also interesting is just the state of the. The Fox company now because until last year Fox owned a movie Studio Television Studio a lot of businesses that have traditionally more liberal and more creative types in them. Now they've gotten rid of all that stuff to Disney and the Fox company is Basically Fox, news sports and the Fox Broadcasting Company, and it really has allowed them to be insulated from what's going on in the rest of media, which has been very attuned to these issues and very intolerant of this kind of hate speech. Fox's now kind of sewing its own path. Yes, now it's a little more obvious. Thank you, Matt! Belen former editorial director of the Hollywood.

Your emotions when you're now in twenty twenty, talking about what appears to be the very same issue. You were talking about in the late sixties Kareem. Famous I, I remember the very first time I became aware of it I was seventeen years old, and a young man named James POW was killed by a police officer named Thomas. Get Look at in. Parliament. Erupted into a riot. You know and I could've got shot I. Could you know just? Being out on the street was was dangerous and you know. It hasn't changed any. It's the same exact issue. The same exact issue. Colin Kaepernick. Tried very hard to demonstrate peacefully about this very issue. And what happened to him? He was ostracized. He lost his job. He was blackballed. And this is the this issue. He was trying to talk about and it. Seems that the powers that be did not like him bringing it up. So, what would you counsel today? What will you?

Make criminal cops accountable you know. The good cops. The overwhelming majority of cops are good cops in they suffer to. When bad cops do what they do, so you know we need to find something. To hold a bad cops accountable and keep them from destroying everything that they destroy. Families are trust in the law. they they they, they squandered the good deeds of all the cops. So you know, something needs to be done about. Well also the headline. Make a friend with someone who doesn't look like you. What do you mean? That's a great idea and. Understanding humanity and Understand that Despite the the difference in looks. They might like chess or collecting stamps or whatever it is. that. You like so You know, find out.

You're somebody who knows that document very well Is there a particular spot that you would say? Hey, person in charge X. Y.. Go. Check this out. Well. The whole idea of promoting voting and making the vote available. Making it possible to vote, I, think is. Part of what our democracy is imbalanced and. Too many especially in red states. They're trying to cut it back in claiming that there's voter fraud. Still grow the front voter fraud is is is not a problem in our country. Unless the Russians are are are are meddling in our elections. So you know we we've got to. Got To make the idea of one man one vote and everybody equal under the law.

Sports leagues face challenges amid plans to reopen

"Sports world, facing setbacks as leagues hope for a return according to reports several NFL. Players including cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott testing positive for covid nineteen. It comes as Brooklyn. Nets star Kyrie Irving reportedly said he was against the NBA's return. Due to nationwide protests, CNBC DOT COM sports business reporter Jabari, your US tonight along with mark, Ganassi's the CO founder of Sports Marketing Powerhouse Sports Core Gentlemen. It is good to see you mark to the NFL I. How is this news of the positive test playing out? You think in the League office or better, yet Roger Goodell's basement. and which which holds which basement that is into night? Here's the thing Scott. The NFL fully expected that there would be. Positive cases the NFL players are part of society, so they knew it was a matter of when not if it protocols in place, they've been working with doctors and medical with the Players Association. They're doctors and with doctors all across the country and the CDC and they've got this sudden got this covered. This was now it said the phases isolation then the next protocol. Protocol will be participation, so they actually expected this. They actually specter will be will test positive even in the fall when Games are taking place. I was GONNA ask you. What is the League willing to tolerate? Do you think in terms of a case number? It sounds from you as though they are expecting that these cases could rise in. They're still gonNA play. They are expecting. There will be cases, but they do expect you know. Three months ago we just got the virus just took root and look how much more we know three months later. The NFL season doesn't start for three months from now imagine how much more information image the protocols that will know that are better and how to deal with it that we'll know in three months, so the NFL is going to use this time wisely it's GonNa Learn. What happens with the NBA Major? League Baseball, the NHL MLS on the soccer. Soccer Teams in your even the Australian rugby they're in contact with to make sure that the NFL the NFL players, association, have as much information as they can have the best procedures and protocols, so the season takes place, and if there are players that that get virus, they will be isolated. They'll be treated in the games will still take place okay speaking of the NBA. Let's bring in Jabari young now in Jabbar. We have issues as we said possibly. As it relates to the NBA coming back as well. What can you tell us tonight? Well, it's just the same. The internal friction! Players probably. Did Not were not aware of all of the dynamics of what debt bubble Dannon. Landau was going to tell. They know that the MLS is want beat. They didn't know that a Disney up. Employees were not going to be quarantine is so now you have a whole bunch of questions from a league body. That's wondering okay. What's going on? And what are we going to do? Sky's get tested nothing. Obviously you see God like the White Howard and Kyrie Irving. Having their own issues with going back because of the protests in what's going without country from a social injustice standpoint, they have every right to stand up for what they believe in, but from an economic standpoint, the players stand to lose a lot of money. If they don't go back so I don't think there's anybody around the league right now. Thinking that July one NBA wants to come back. That date is not gonNA still be fulfilled I just think as a matter of. of WHO's going to go on the NBA has made it clear. They're not forcing anybody to go, but if you don't go, you don't get paid so if the players don't go, they just sit out. They don't get paid and I think that'll have their own form of protests. Some are voicing their concerns. That may be going would be better because of the high profile that the players would have maybe Lebron James Among those taking that stand. What do you know about that? Absolutely. That's the platform you when you down in the NBA platform and I don't think the NBA, nor espn a northerner sports which the Games will air on would have any problem with the players expressing themselves and I think if you players right now. Maybe you kind of go to the table you go to the owners, and you try to get more, and you say. Hey, listen you want us to come back. How each owner donate to some type of social injustice organization, some type of economic reform in a neighborhood. How `bout to force the owners to give back. You guys want us to go back down there. You want us to risk our lives you. You want out health to wants to go play Hibachi give back to black communities are more than which doing set initiatives aside use this platform to not only makes a Mega Stan, but use it for economic purposes, because guess what the owner Dan and make a lot of money from the NBA players coming back down and Landau and risking their lives and play.

It's one thing to see those images. When you see George Floyd. And then you see, wait a minute. The police are teargassing people rubber bullets. Peaceful protests, so here's what I want everybody to know if you've ever been a person and it's okay to be on the wrong of history. But if you look back at your past. And you tell yourself. I don't know water ride. I don't know what it protested. Well it's going to be okay. It can't be that bad. If, you drew brees in the game. It's okay. I'm not the cancer of culture that feels like we should ostracize drew. BREES was saying how he feels. I appreciate how he feels, and if we want to have her dialogue onto while we agree and disagree, that's fine. But. As a black man I learned I can't be having that conversation. Every two steps I take where every human being and it's a realistic. Will. Preserve a couple points I. WanNa Make One is? I was walking around his neighborhood in Manhattan today, and there was some protests here. There's also some looting here. Over early last week, and I noticed that some businesses were starting to take out the drills and take the the boarding off of their windows. Sort of feeling like I will. Just a little sign of many that sort of the equivocal uprising has subsided somewhat. And I honestly can't tell you. If I, want the protests. To be bigger. And never stop until there's actual change. Or if I want, the protests subside somewhat select quote, unquote, get back to normal is one of the things that wrestle with heck. Yeah, it would be convenient if there wasn't protesting a curfew in New York City in, but the fact of matter is convenient doesn't matter right now, like maybe maybe there should be more protests. May I don't WanNa? See this sort of died down and become something that happens in the past. I WANNA. See True Change Policy Change Police reform. Diversity in. At all ranks of Corporate America like I, feel like these are things that need to happen in I. Don't know if was been done thus far enough to see that actually happened. What a first rate in part is says it's been going on for five hundred years. We both know is not going to change overnight. NUCLE- the. Question is what does. Substantial change look like. And for me. The for one of the first things that real- Reverend Al Sharpton said. George Floyd's funeral when he was talking about America getting their knee offered a black man's neck.

"jabbar" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby

"Black lives matter. It's it's. It's mainstream now Jacoby the the. Cancel culture into reality of watching a human being like George Floyd get killed with this need to his neck with people were dealing with the coronavirus under a pandemic is forced to Washington for nine minutes has been a unique awaken in in our country. They even Roger Goodell. In the NFL have to recognize if you wanted to be genuine. What they should have done P.. R. One. Oh One. You should gather about ten or fifteen owners and do a version of the video that the players did if forced you to do it. s would have showed me something. And, you say systemic. You mean ownership. GM's presidents coaches people in decision, making position empower not many blacks in your league. I WANNA see it. That's the action, not the words. And I also feel that everything. He said what he didn't say. It was one of the most important things he said. We didn't listen to NFL players. He didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name Colin. Cabinet this literally cost him his career to fight against social injustice, and I personally feel that he deserves to be mentioned because he. He said we didn't listen to. NFL players with the NFL players are still NFL. Players and it cost. Cowan cabinet. His career I think he definitely should have been mentioned by name this video. Don't you agree? Absolutely and the civil uprising with people from all racist from all countries, all sides of the world. Jacoby London The Netherlands Africa, this movement has created such a groundswell that forces the NFL to acknowledge that they were wrong yet. Still Kit acknowledged Colin Kaepernick by name. Couldn't acknowledge him by name that that's the step to admitting you're wrong. Is Acknowledgement still didn't happen in so I'm disappointed by that. Well there's a really interesting twist to this because if you sort of admit that you're wrong that you should have listened nfl players when you condemn them kneeling during the national anthem. What about this season? Adrian Peterson a veteran. Here's what he had to say about potentially kneeling this season, he said the following quote. Just four years ago, you're seeing cabinet taking a knee. And now we're all getting ready to take a knee together going into the season without a doubt. Yes without a doubt without a doubt, he plans on taking a knee. Interesting, he went on to say. We've got to put the effort in as a group collectively. Are they going to try to punish us all? If not playing football is going to help us save lives and change things than that's what it needs to be Jalen. Do you see in nfl where you see a majority of the players taking a knee from the anthem? I do and it's going to happen. And this power and platform actually existed for NFL NBA. Entertainers of US for years ago. The difference is when you look back a history. A lot of us are going to be on the wrong side of it. They can column probably shouldn't take is protest to work. That's the biggest stage. That's what people are paying attention, so if I'M GONNA kneel rather do it. It on Sunday at work. They don't Tuesday or my day off. Especially peacefully now the players have been emboldened so the swell of people that did it before. See the groundswell of corporate. America happened to recognize our voices legitimately, and so now is GonNa? Give other black athletes, and why athletes in the NFL the freedom to actually feel if they wanted to kneel MP's that they can actually do so. One of the most powerful athlete voices that we have ever seen in history joins us right after this Kareem abdul-jabbar join Justin just. Treat me. Accusations! We'll be right back.

Thank you so much for taking the time we appreciate joined the program and you recently tweeted that you were into your thoughts reevaluating what it means to be black in America. What exactly did you mean by that? You have to just think back about how life in America has affected you as a black person? And for me, it's It's had its ups and downs, but it all started for me back in one thousand, nine hundred. Eight years old one. Emmett till. was murdered and I didn't understand that and. From that point on I tried to figure out what I can do about it so. I, think my life who's reflected them? Indefinitely.

New charges in George Floyd's death as protests sweep nation

"Minnesota's attorney, general announced new charges today in the death of George Floyd tonight I spoke to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. He says his office will prepare. Organize and put on the best case possible, but quote at the end of the day. It's really in the hands of the. The jury joining me now is NBA Legend Kareem? Abdul Jabbar so much for being with us as I said, you wrote a piece in the La Times a couple of days ago that he just thought was was really done and I just wanted to talk to you about it. I of although I'd like to get your thoughts on the news that the other three officers involved in Mr Floyd's death his murder had been charged, and that officer a former officer Chauve in. His charges have been upgraded to second degree murder. Is that a step toward justice in your mind? I think it's certainly a step toward justice, and I think that Just the fact that the governor and the mayor really acted quickly and decisively and set a tone for how we should react to this horrible incident. It's so interesting to me how? Different people in this country seat react differently to nunnelee. What are you know what they saw in the video of the killing of Mr Floor? But also what they see in the videos we're showing right now. Protests on people protesting on the streets. You wrote in the La Times and it's a bit of a long paragraph, but I just think it's a really important one that I want to read read. It's you wrote. Yes, protests, oftener uses excuse for some to take advantage just as when fans celebrating the Hometown Sports Team Championship. Burn cars and. And destroy storefronts. I don't WanNa. See stores, looted, or even buildings burn, but African Americans have been living in a burning building for many years. Choking on the smoke is the flames burn closer and closer racism in America's like dust in the air seems invisible. Even if you're choking on it until you let the sun in, then you see, it's everywhere as long as we keep shining light, we have a chance to cleaning it wherever it lands, but we have to stay vigilant because it's always still in the air. Can you talk about how? Different people see different protests, and and why you wrote that paragraph. Well I wrote that paragraph because I I tried to. Set up an analogy that that people could understand you know I. There's another way of describing it. It's like you know. The United States is this wonderful bus. With great seats in the front of the bus, but as you go further to the back of the bus, two seats get worse and the fumes from the exhaust leaking and. Really Record People's Health and Their lives. But the people at the front of the bus. They have no complaints. I it's. It's kind of like that When I describe the the dust in the air and then just accumulates in the lives of black Americans and I. It just eliminates all of the mechanics of democracy. Democracy doesn't work for us we are last fired her. Last hired first fired We have a different. Set of expectations from the criminal justice system. So many ways of of American life discriminating against Black Americans. And finally I think we. We've come to a moment of clarity here where. It can result in such a horrible incident that we saw with with Mr Floyd's death. President Obama spoke today about Y- and I I'm paraphrasing because his words are former eloquent than than my memory of them but. Essentially channeling the energy that we are seeing this extraordinary outpouring and sustained outpouring to real. Systematic change and I'm wondering how you think that is possible, I mean. Do you think it's possible you know? Marching in the streets is extraordinarily powerful. Where does it lead to? That makes real change. I think as possible, Anderson. If it leads to forming a political will within our country to do something, something has to be done. It's It's not enough to say that was terrible. And my thoughts and prayers are with you that that that's not getting anything done we have to. We have to change the circumstances. It's been almost thirty years since Rodney, King Incident D. did you see that as a routine traffic stop? If any white American had. An a relative, get drunk and get stopped by the police in relative beaten. Those people would be up in arms. But Yet Thirty s pass. Nothing has changed. There's been a lot more other dead black Americans and guide really for no good reasons misdemeanors. Eric Garner died because he was selling. Cigarettes illegally You know these are triple things to take someone's life over and we have to. We have to get to the point where we have to do something about that and I think. This will cause the political will maybe to to to grow, and maybe we can get something done. I mean. Yeah, you talk about or Garner Mr? Floyd was accused, not convicted for anything accused. Passing Counterfeit Twenty Dollar Bill and and the man is dead. When you. What was that about the passing a bad bill? You get killed for that? That's horrific.

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

"Kirk. So I I swear. I promise we're not here to debate. Mj versus Lebron. At least not until the end of the interview believe me I have my stance. It is locked and loaded. We'll get to that. I don't want to alienate half the audience before we begin so over the last few weeks. Those of us who have watched the last dance have borne witness to the greatness. That is Michael. Jordan and that greatness does inform the Lebron debate insofar as it has reminded us of how dominant Jordan was but of course he was playing a different era. Basketball was very different from how it is today which can make it hard to compare those two players or to evaluate how Jordan would fare in today's NBA. So let's start here and established that point of comparison. What was the league like Jordan came into it? Well Jordan came into the in nineteen eighty four and it was a very very different place. The best players in the League at that time or Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson Larry Bird bird again. Larry saying the crowd here. This is what came to see. Kareem abdul-jabbar was still really good Long story short meaning the the NBA was run by big men just as it had been since its entire district and eight of the ten highest play players by the time Jordan even retired centers Jordan was drafted in Nineteen eighty-four just to give you an idea dominant. How valuable centers were sixteen of the twenty previous? Mvp Award winners heading into the one thousand nine hundred four eighty five season worst centers so Jordan entered an MBA. That's fair to characterize as a centers -ly And obviously it's very very different than what we're describing here in twenty twenty. So how big of a deal was it? That the best player in the League Michael Jordan was a shooting dude. You can't overstate. How big of a deal. It was really weird. I mean magic had showed us that point guards could be great. Bird showed us the power forwards and shooting. Forwards could be great no. Mvp had ever come from the shooting. Guard position nobody had really ever dominated the leak or won championships from that position or in that way and again one of the main things the makes Michael Jordan's such a special character in NBA. History is that he deformed the various static of MBA greatness. disrupted to use the term from from Silicon Valley. What it meant and what it looked like to be. Nba superstar love deformed as a verb because it sort of implies that he bent the League to his own. Will he did that man? I mean he came in there and it was violent and it was beautiful and it was for the betterment of the future of the sport a couple of weeks ago. You're at a piece about why. Michael Jordan was such a transcendent score. Can you explain what it was that? Made that dominant so unusual. Yeah well it starts with the fact that he's a he's a guard and again to contextualize it against what was going on in the eighties. Nineties is is shooting guards in wings didn't dominate the NBA. We had the occasional superstar like Julius Irving. So I'm not GonNa say that he was the first star wing but he was a jump shooter. Long Story Short. He was a jump shooting guard. Who could attack the Rim and boy could he attack the rim? So the early part of Jordan's careers. Obviously marked by these highlight jump. Man Silhouettes the dump contest leap from the free throw line and Chicago. Stadium can picture that in our head along Dominique to Michael Jordan but by the end Meena Jordan would beat teams with just incredible mid range shooting And if a majority of buckets in the last dance season in that second repeat came off of the mid range jump shots that either came from post plays Dribble pull-ups quick stops just an endless array of mid range jumpers. Mj On the way away. Jumper and one scout told me a really stuck out is like I've been watching the last dance for eight hours now. I haven't seen the same move twice. It's not like he had to go to move over and over again. All those phase pretty close but man he he did it all but he did it in this area that we don't use very much anymore. Aka Amid Ridge and he's also very difficult shots right thinking about it this way. If you're going up against the Bulls in his nineteen ninety two or nineteen ninety-seven and year in opposing coach. Year number one objective is pretty clear If you can stop or slowdown Michael Jordan. You have a chance. If can't you don't So almost every night the Jordan played he would get the other teams best defender. And that person would WANNA play their best game of the year because everybody in their Rena was watching it and so he did. This eighty two games a year to put up the best sort of scoring numbers in the League against the best defensive performers in the league so you made a heat map for Jordan and then in the same story you made one for harden and you put them next to each other and trying to comparison it almost looks like urban and rural America right or like to to heat maps. That are just wildly different. Almost like people playing different sports one hundred percent in hardened deserves all the credit in the world for becoming the best score of this era but this era is dominated by sort of this moneyball dogma efficiency efficiency efficiency and when you look at James Harden shot signature. You see a guy who shoots near the hoop. He's great Basket attacking guard like Jordan But then away from the painting of the student only shoots threes. He avoids the Mid Range just like he avoids a shaving cream. And and then when you look at say Jordan you see almost the exact opposite remember that old image of Pan Jia and how the continent sort of fit together these two shots hearts kind of look like South America and Africa. Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.

"jabbar" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

"Three years at at Ucla Kareem abdul-jabbar. In my opinion the most disrespected basketball player. Maybe athlete of all time. He's got an argument to be the greatest NBA history. He certainly the greatest player in college basketball history myself. Get US rolling here. Why is Kareem abdul-jabbar so disrespected man? No-one Kareem abdul-jabbar have the last decade. It's me I will say this. He has this cocktail of being a genius being aloof. And I had to go into that before I give you the Cherry on top. Which really makes them most disrespected athlete. All the time his genius is such that when you talk to them you realize all a bit stepping up. I better go deep into these pages of whatever I'm discussing because Corinne is an intelligent young man. Now let's talk about who. We is in terms of being aloof. He doesn't really care if you don't care about what he's thinking or you don't care to agree with him so that's really important to know that someone says something and they're not trying to move you as much as just tried to enlighten you. But the Cherry on top is that he did all of his greatest work the peak of his powers as a teammate of the most likeable player ever Magic Johnson. And I think that's where it really went wrong for Corinne because he didn't invest his time energy trying to recover any relationships that he may have lost throughout the process of being on the meanwhile magic was doing nothing but trying to get these relationships going and foster in great goodwill in the community and with others so is this that combination man unfortunate but his genius and his distance on top of being with the most likeable player ever really makes people kind of from Karimun his greatness. The number one thing for me is there's a certain amount of recency biased but that you can't trust anything when it comes to the Internet and people who are voting on on ESPN. It's one outlet so to suggest that that is a reflection true reflection of where anybody stands. Historically I think is a is a is an error. Bersell makes a lot of great points. I I hand know what a prickly personality Kareem was. When he was playing and look pictures are more powerful than words and video is more powerful than pictures and we essentially. You're not seeing a whole lot of video of of Kareem abdul-jabbar certainly at the height of his powers when he was playing at UCLA. And so the Michael Jordan. Not only that you see in college but being colored by what he did as a pro all of that is going to influence the voting here but we really look at it wholeheartedly. At who was the better who had the better college career who was the better college player. It's not even close but I think that this is a reflection of the voting the voting process in who is voting as opposed to even the personality of Kareem. I think that was a factor. He played at a time where he was a bit of a Social Justice Warrior. That was a brand new thing and it has his his message. Had to be carried by what was predominantly white male reporters. Let's face it. He didn't get along with them. He didn't look to cultivate those relationships. Those would be the guys that would be speaking for him now and I dare say you don't have a whole lot of them doing that. Yeah I I think we would be remiss. If we also didn't mention his name was lew alcindor change into Kareem abdul-jabbar. There is a biased. I believe against Muslim people here in America. I don't think there was a lot of comfort particularly at that time with him being a Muslim and so I think some of that plays a wrong. But most of this I because again the prickly personality Bill Russell's got a prickly Michael Jordan's got a bit of a pregnant personality and is a bit aloof and those things and trust me Bill Russell Bill Walton Kareem abdul-jabbar Magic. Larry Bird to me. Those guys all had more historic Hollis careers where. I really blame the media. Though is the way we leave. Karim out of the greatest. Nba Player discussion. And there's a lot of us fifty and older who know damn well Kareem abdul-jabbar has might there some of us? They BELIEVE IN I. I honestly do believe this. The Kareem is right there with Michael Jordan six time NBA MVP. We sit around and talk about who the best closer was in basketball in closed this guy and Kareem abdul-jabbar and the reliability of that it was tossed the ball into the seven footer. He dropped Skyhook on you or he kicks it out to someone else because he could make the right past or he would go to the free. Throw line after getting He shot over seventy percent from the free throw line. Kareem abdul-jabbar is the greatest closer in basketball history. And so I don't think we give cream his proper respect as NBA Player. The all time leading scorer somehow with all the championships the MVP somehow can't get in that conversation and that's on us. Yeah I think it said he played with magic and magic gets the lion's share of credit. Or what those teams did. And we didn't see him in Milwaukee Right. It wasn't until he got to the Lakers that we really paid attention to him and again. I will say that that personality next to magic one of the most beloved and gracious when it came to the media when they were playing like it or not. Those were factors. Yeah man you know the and it's not just limited to the Internet I'm glad we're highlighting net. It's media people. It's people who are periods of the sport still look at career with disrespect and look at them in a proper lives. And just an example of this Columbia my Alma Mater was in the hunt for new head coach and Kareem abdul-jabbar. Who from New York City could not even land that Gig because of this perception or misperception of how he relates to others especially the young kids? Eighteen to twenty two year old. Who would've never seen to replay obviously and as we've stated has seen enough highlights of Korean to even give him the reverence necessary so it Kareem K. Get the Columbia job as a basketball coach. You know this stuff is not being looked at properly. It's his greatness. Thanks.

In Black America: Spencer Haywood

"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A.
