NBA Restart: Which Teams Have the Advantage?

"Jackie is good to hear your. Voice. Meena, are you today you trust me on around worn. Almost stalker it. I'm almost over. It's okay. You beat me many times at this point. EILLY. You're the Lakers and suns. Jackie macmullan is a senior writer for ESPN and frequent around the horn panelists where she has earned two hundred and forty four wins compared to my own forty. She also happens to cover the NBA for nearly forty years. Speaking of the Lakers and suns, the NBA returns, tomorrow night, and amidst all of the craziness in major, League Baseball, the NBA, but seems to be mostly working, but the league is not without some coronavirus related drama. Thanks to one Lou Williams who's sanctioned trip outside of the NBA's clean site included an unsanctioned visit to a certain establishment. Can you explain for everyone? What happened? Well Lou, Williams left the bubble for a funeral for a very close family friend in Atlanta. And he has said many times. It's documented on social media that his favorite place to go eat the magic. Or another left to forgive me I'm not someone that goes interest clubs often or ever if I'm truthful although I did go once to the Butterfly Lounge against my will in Washington DC. But that's a whole nother story that we don't have time for. So. Lou will claims said he went there to have the wings which are named after him. There's some lemon pepper wings named after him and that he went there simply to eat and then he was on his way with his mass and so on and so forth. And Meena by the way I believe him I. Don't think he went to see your stripper. You probably was hungry. But my goodness. What was he doing there? What he did after the family gathering is the center of an NBA security discussion. A rapper who was at the club took pictures of him and tagged him in the photo used the poster child of what not to do. The sample out of what glue will be. It it it. BOGGLES my mind. You. Just clearly did not think this through.

Did 1998 have to be the last dance for Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls?

"At last we heard Michael Jordan say that from the outset of the nineteen ninety seven ninety eight season it was their last chance Phil Jackson he said could have gone any joint in the regular season and still would not have been back throughout the last dance we were reminded of Jordan's competitiveness and as we watch the end of a ten hour documentary about a team a franchise that just won six titles in an eight year span Michael Jordan was upset he did have a chance to go for a seventh the bulls were broken up the rebuilding began after that nineteen ninety eight championship could they have had one more in the could they have kept the team together if they tried ESPN's Michael Wilbon Jackie MacMullan I would bet on Scotty Michael and Phil Jackson anytime anywhere let's start with that but here's the problem Phil and Jerry Krause Scott their relationship was untenable by that point so there was no way Phil was going to come back if you don't have still come back then who's going to control Dennis robin even

"Just the air of invincibility and the adjust felt that some way somehow his teams were always going to win as just as a fan. You had to trick yourself into believing that the other team really could way just just a Benz. But if you wanted to pick the moment of actual legitimate vulnerability. It's ninety three. The Knicks are up to. Oh in the conference finals now. I did not think the bills were vulnerable. Even then but if you're down to oh when you don't have home court you're you're vulnerable and game five game. Five is the Charles Smith game that comes out to the world if that game differently you know. It's so it's that and it's Pacers game seven hundred ninety eight that you're talking about and it's my favorite of the Bulls finals just as a fan. My my most favorite. The one that was most into was ninety seven against Utah which has two two and game five is in Utah. And it's the flu game at two two game four is when Stockton and Malone the full cost last minute of the game one of the great passes in NBA History Malone as it in Utah goes up by one goes on to win at that moment. You thought maybe the jets can can actually do this. And then game five happens in Michael Sick and he looks sick and on TV or like this dude can barely walk. I just remember thinking the jazz are going to go up three two. They might actually pull this up. So those are the moments of vulnerability ninety seven ninety three and Pacers game. I don't pick whatever one. Those were the ones where the invincibility was like. Well what I think those teams had in common and I go back to the Pacers team of nine eight aunt and the next thing. They were big. They'd played volleyball. They were strong. They were physical. And you know. The patients were down two to nothing in that series to the Bulls in in ninety eight and the conference finals. And they were getting manhandled. Phil. Jackson did a really smart thing. He put Scottie Pippen. Mark Jackson so mark Jackson made his living posting up smaller guards. And now all of a sudden couldn't do that and I think it was Ron Harper on Reggie Miller so he made some really good adjustments so the first two games. The Pacers you're thinking. They got no chance. They got no chance in this series. They can't they can keep up with these guys but what they started doing was just saying. Let's pound them. This is where we have an advantage. We have a size in a physicality advance. Let's use it and that's how they got themselves back into that series you know and they just got really really physical when of course came forward. That's the famous shot that we see all the time of. Reggie pushing off Michael. The game winner at Fills Yali calls. We never get any calls. Which was just beyond to Larry's Michael and that's where he just standing happen yet. You know just literally. He's watching. He's watching train. Go by or something on a piece of that was all by design. I have asked him about that a bunch of times and he said to me. I just thought I cannot show outside. Anka's I know it's not over. I don't want them to get giddy. We haven't done anything yet. All that was very much by design and Brad Stevens if you notice. He's a little more emotional now. He's getting more comfortable in the NBA. But when he first came into the League you'd be very deadpan if they want a game a game at the Buzzer. You would think Brad no expression I asked him about it once and he said when I was a kid growing up in Indiana I watched Larry Bird and I saw that and I thought okay. That's how we have to do this. That interesting it's funny a- It is It is funny. How Different Cultures? React to. But lay a larry was ridiculous. That was ridiculous. That just see stood there like you're a strategy realizing Larry Bird he said I will only coach three years and then actually was a man of his word only coach three years. I just think he could have been a hall of fame coach. I really do of so. He always talks about game. Seven of that series in ninety eight and before the game Michael Guarantees Wind shocking. Michael Jordan of course is unbelievable. He's unbelievable but this is the play that libraries talks about the. It's there there are three about six minutes left. The Pacers are you know what I I. I haven't watched having watched the game the other day. I have a guest of what I think it'd be Derek McKee knocks the ball. Loose does die. They're diving on the floor. There's a jump ball. Is this what you think my guest? But my guess is it's Rick Smits and Michael Jordan. Okay now of course is greatest Jordan is. It's probably not GonNa win this tip. Rick Smits seven feet tall. So they're lining up for the jump bird and Dick Carter. His right hand. Man is assistant. Coach are standing there. They watch everybody lineup. And Pippen's kind of hedging a little bit in on Reggie Miller who's in front right at least in front and it's it's clear sailing for Smith's to tip behind would be an easy tip now remember. The Pacers are up three here so they're looking at it and burned sexual self. Oh this is perfect. He'll just sit back and then he's like Shoot he never hits back. He always sits at four now. This is all in a mental mental milliseconds. Right so harder says to. Maybe we should call timeout birds thinking no no no. We're going to win the tip. I WANNA save time out. But as he's thinking this he's like what I've never seen Smith's tip it back he's GonNa tip at Ford. They're going to intercepted. I'M GONNA call timeout and it's too late the balls up in the air and PIPPA does exactly what bird fears. He jumps in front of Richie. Smits TIPS IT to Reggie Miller. Pippen jumps the passing lane steals the ball. Get it to Michael Jordan. Who BY THE WAY MRS? Because you were talking about. It doesn't make every shot. Missed THAT SHOT BUT PIP. And got the rebound. Because of course they killed him on the offensive glass. It was like yeah like is how they WANNA get crazy. What Michael Jordan in that game has four baskets that are that are put backs and I think three of them are awesome his own shots including including rebels but anyway so he misses the shot. Tip gets the rebound. Kicks IT OUT TO CURRY? It's a three so instead of the Pacers winning the tip a chance to be up five now to tie game and if you ask about that game that you ever get the chance ask about that. Because that's what he remembers all these years later so I watch the dealer day and and it looks like you're watching all these games are low definition and it's like you can't even like low definition feels next will be doing like this. Why excuse the players are it? Looks a little bit like Jordan jumps in his arm kind of hit smits his arm and I it looks. It's hard to tell because it's from the twenties but it looks like his arm Kinda Hits Smith's his arm and interferes with Smith's his ability to completely control the like Switz- wins the tip but he can't quite directed it where it wants to attack the Edwards that was worth spurts point. You Know Steve Kerr is coming on the podcast next week to talk about Jordan in the last dance and I texted him. I was watching the game. I said Steve this jump ball. You know you get this offense rebound you hit a three two. I just I just said Steve. I just watched you tie game seven with a three and this crazy jump ball. And he said Reggie Miller to this day talk about that. Play all the time about how that would play the swung. The game are changed the game. The I don't know what he said he said. Reggie and I talk about that play. Every time we stick vard's craw that and of course the rebounding. I think they also missed a ton of free throws didn't they they missed like forte throws throws. Yeah well a lot by a lot of them are they. Can't they'll be missing is that's what that's what he does before. I let you go. I mean we're talking about games. But what are some other personal Michael Jordan? Memories that you can share that are important to you. I mean even in your piece you talk about how you see him today and you see you know a father who likes to go skiing with his kids and he tells him stick with you for some reason. So what are what are some? Maybe there's something a an interview did with him. That meant something to career. Maybe I don't know what else comes to mind. I called him about a story. I was doing I think it was. Kobe was doing a story on Toby's retirement. And all the great mentors he had and of course Jordan was a number one. I wasn't sure if Jordan you never know if he's going to call you you know you talk to. Sd His great assistant. Why a door do Jordan's number but a very very rarely ever texting because I shouldn't have as number then we're going to do that right so I think the only time I've ever texted him. Frankly was day Kobe died. I texted him. And that's when he told me I can't even know words right now I can't even But anyway so I'm at home with husband was away on actually and the phone rang and it was a Florida number and I'm like asked probably either radio show that I don't feel like doing right now or Bamn but I don't know maybe picking up. It was him and I had called him for this story for Kobe. And he was fantastic. And the thing that really resonated with me was Kobe's wanted to be like Jordan. That's really all he wanted to. He just wanted to be Jordan and Jordan really had a soft spot for Kobe. I heard it. This is not. This is not after the fact. Now the Kobe's gone this is. Kobe was alive and well. He was about to retire and the kindness with which Michael Talk about Kobe. That night's me some of it off the record some of it on so I won't share the off the record stuff because that wouldn't be fair but real concern that Kobe because he fell short. He didn't win the six championships like Jordan data because people are always comparing him to Jordan and talking about how koby fell short that really bothered him because he really had great respect for Kobe. Going about things the right way in terms of preparation in terms of that killer instinct that we've talked about a bunch on this podcast so there was a real kindness about Jordan when he spoke of Kobe that you know. I don't have reflective kindness that I don't think I'd always heard before when he was in you know in the throes of competition and We have a kind of a long conversation that night. I had actually ended up in the announcement. Something I'd be telling. I ended up in the emergency room that day I had had Like a heart publication which I had never had before and I've never had since not sure why I had it and So he said what are you doing? I said Oh. I got my slippers on my husband's away on a Guy. Ski Trick in Drinking a glass of wine and I said maybe I should just had this thing. Today I went to the I don't know why I even told him. And he was like. Hey now at our age. You don't mess with that. That's you gotTa make sure you follow up with and it was funny like because we're we were both for Colson Age. You know I'm older but we're similar age and it just sort of occurred to me when I was speaking with him that day that evening which was a while ago now. Whatever Kobe's final year plan was that I don't know we've been through a lot together that's consult like to me. It was a very nice feeling to have. He was not in my market. You know he was not in Boston. It wasn't like experiences with bird and perish Mikhail banning all them But it it meant something to me and it was. It was great to have a conversation with them. That had nothing to do with me trying to find out something that was relevant to his career. His legacy was just two people having a conversation. And those are the things. I think that all of us that do this business. When you have those moments you cherish them what you're really describing is. You've got a much more personal and private in early. Sneak peek at his speech at Kobe's memorial which identified. Yeah which surprised so many people because it's just a side of him that no one really hit ever seen before and in fact the contract with Hall of fame speech which is sort of classic ultracompetitive Sacco Jordan that that speech at Kobe's thing just blew everybody away and you got well in four or five years in advance of a sort of a private and personal in much longer and in-depth kind of version of that personal that's fits very interesting..

"Booed at operate. He's right that's the that's the truth about it. So how you feel about that and I thought I told I told her I had security Bob. I told them listen. You might take him up. Jersey off run around city crazy man. We're going to ship. Yeah but it will always be Lakers town for sure. Going Back Ryan mentioned the summer and hey listen. We've seen the way player movement has changed this league and and think pat how you ended up with the Clippers essentially a sign and trade. Right Chris. Paul essentially tells the team. If you don't do a sign and trade for me and get something back for me. I'm just GONNA leave and free agency. You're not GonNa get anything for me. And so the clippers make the trade. And what do they get back? They get you they get mantras heralding it. Lou Williams which become the core of the team that you go out and essentially sell to Hawaii and Paul Georgian. That's how your team is bill. But that's I don't want to cut you off and that's what. I'm just trying to show everyone out here. Just that simple of what I talked about regardless of the name of it could be Chris. Paul can be anybody the the EGO. If you don't do this I'm going to do this. You disrespect the game. It will come back to get you like no matter. What like it's a life. It's a life balance like anything. You're doing you guys working on. If is your job and if I don't do this I want this happened. Usually it doesn't work in your favor. You know and it worked plus and it worked really well for us and usually that's how it goes who we are used now to a whole different like just look at last week. And I know Jackie's been philly a little bit lately in one day and in Ryan was talking about this summer's pod and podcast like Jimmy Butler says something on Instagram. Joel embiid response. He was like. Hey We gotTA TEAM AT EMBRACES VILLAINS AND JOEL SAYS. Yeah you're damn straight you know like and now all right so now it becomes. Joel's on a stretcher. He's not played well and now he's talking about and of course there's no way for him to get to my. We always forget that part like he's just GonNa pack up and go play. There's no other mechanisms Leonard Miles and then and then the next right. Yeah and then. The next night he comes out plays great. They win against you. And now he's now he's posting. Hey phillies my city and like it's just normal in the league. We go some of us who covered it go. Wow How do you get to the point? Now where you just go like that part of it now is just become normal Does it impact the locker room? Does it impact the way you guys look at each other when there's so much conversation about what's coming next where everyone's going versus what we're trying to do right now in this league trying to win. Tonight's game for a week. Mind a year for for for for players who have lose mentalities yes you can get away with that but you come into a locker room attain. You know who wants to win dynamic is very different. I come on Bro. We don't WanNa hear that. Lock Lock Hand Zip Zip Zip. That's all done over there. You know like move on. Let's play basketball. We're here to play basketball. We're here to win games and play basketball. It's plenty ways you can be very strategic and fans and getting everybody could CA- route and have on your side. It's very strategic ways. But you know it's it's it's it's one way and it's the right way jacky when you were covering the Celtics Lakers great six or teams in the eighties and a player was upset about roll the GM too. It's really too bad. I mean it really was like that and players back then and I get Lebron a lot of crap for the player empowerment that exists in the NBA and like or dislike Lebron. One thing that I appreciate about Lebron is when I say player in parliament in each case he never forced his way out. He finished his contract so he has the right as a player as a free agent. You know he would opt out earlier. What have you? But he has never been a guy that's forced to trade to move on to the next place. I have respect for for that. I have a little less respect for people that you know. Shoot their way out but back in the day like I remember. I remember once there was Larry. Bird had contract coming up and we didn't even know really back then with how much the contracts were worth like it just it was very different league and it was very heavily owner controlled. The players had very few rights. It felt like and I remember. He actually came in late for media and he wasn't like that he was a guy that showed up but he came because he was mad. He was mad that the negotiations weren't going the way he wanted and Jan Volk was GM that time and someone said well. Where's Larry because he's supposed to be here and in general made a huge mistake and he said. I don't know well. By the time Larry landed. They used to have two days and I went to the second two a day because I was new and young and scared so I went to everything so I went to the second today and I asked him about it and he went off like I'd never seen it before. And he said I will only deal with red are back from now on but never once did he say I want out of here. I'm going to go because even though he was Larry Bird he wasn't going anywhere. Free Agency was different. There wasn't player movement and the one thing that every player of that generation wanted was to begin and end their career in one place. That was the standard that everybody wanted to live by. Kareem abdul-jabbar was it was a notable exception but Irvin Magic Johnson played for one team is entire career. So did Larry Bird Kobe. Bryant did and. I know you had the same experience that I did. There was a time when Kobe was unhappy with the Lakers. I'm in my car like I need to buy a dress for a party and I'm in the car for forty minutes and listen to. Kobe told me he wants to be traded. And I'm thinking that's fine do but you're not going anywhere. Well he really meant you mention Kobe. And no real. I remember having dinner with him down in Newport beach have years I was a place he'd like to go out they'll meet him. I was his office right and I remember him one night telling me well. I I think the Lakers are gonna Amnesty me. Jim Bus doesn't want me anymore. He's GonNa dump my contracts amnesty me. I'm going to go to the Knicks Higher Phil Jackson replaced Phil Whereas I Co. they're not going to amnesty. They will burn this city down. That's not happening. No he was he was sure of it. He was sure of it and I was like the dumbest conversation I've ever had with. Anybody is now. You're not getting amnestied by the Lakers. He had it in his head for a while he did. And isn't it interesting? Think about it. One of the greatest players that ever lived and who came to embody the Lakers in the most positive ways. For whatever reason as great as you as he was and he was great even he had moments seeds of doubt and the other the other one with him to was the idea of going to the clippers and Jerry West brought it up right and the aftermath of Kobe's passing about him having to Talk Koby out of signing with the clippers and another thing. He said there was a time where the clippers sterling on them where they play a few games a year down in Orange County. I think at the Toyotas whatever that arena is there in Anaheim and there was some talk about. Maybe the team moving down there and Kobe said to me at the team moved down there. I would've signed with the clippers. My why is it? The commute the shorter. Wait a minute you would. Essentially you're going to leave the Lakers and go to the clippers. First shorter commute. He said yes and that was a time where he would take. He would take that helicopter from Orange County he would land on that ritz-carlton that's right by staples center. I think you could land on. The roof landed somewhere around there and he hated that drive. He hated that traffic and he would take the helicopter all around now. I don't know in the heart-to-heart of Kobe. Ever really GONNA go. But it was even the guys who did stay their whole career in a place. It's rare that eight. Tim Duncan nearly came Tim Dot Landau rivers but think about it. I mean you guys were in Chicago. Michael Jordan did not begin and end his career in Chicago. I still can't believe it but we all just like to. I mean I would like to forget those Washington years because I covered them and no disrespect to Mike but those are like a cement of his legacy that last season he played every writing but that was like the last thirty forty game. Like it wasn't so fun before that when I get the minutes in the points in the field goal percentage. Yeah it was like the previous year he would like. Oh I made a mistake. Okay well now kill you guys know that the team was great or anything but you back on. Those numbers are good but I wanNA follow up on something you said here because you're talking about the player empowerment thing. I've been kind of ANA just fascinated about because I don't know that I have the right answer like I don't know what's right. I don't know the balance of it because sometimes I think about like younger people in my industry and being ten almost fourteen years. Can you beat younger people coming up and they would ask you vice and you'd be like okay. Well what do you want to do? And they'd be there two years doing a podcast going. You know. I'd like to maybe pre-game Monday night football.

David Stern's greatest act as NBA commissioner was supporting Magic Johnson after HIV diagnosis

"When you think about sports that have massive worldwide appeal their soccer of course and there's basketball wasn't necessarily always that way specially when he came to the NBA and back to the early nineteen eighties we can say the NBA was flirting with extinction David stern took over the reins as commissioner and grow it into a five billion dollar per year industry during his thirty years as commissioner former commissioner David stern died Wednesday afternoon at the age of seventy seventy had suffered a brain hemorrhage on December twelfth never recovered earlier on the who collected podcast with Brian Windhorst are Jackie MacMullan I've met a lot of amazing people in my life but he is the smartest person I have ever met Brian I he had an answer for everything now they also might not have always been correct but god forbid you challenge him which we all have done from time to time he was just here the sharpest sharpest mind in a very very sharp edge to him as well which I think he very freely acknowledged throughout his you know his tenure as a commissioner he had some blind spots of you know you talk about the blocks the people that supported him I don't know this for a fact that you've got to believe that Donald sterling was one of them because why else would he have looks the other way the way he did yeah I know that's that works landmark Georgian also so you know he he's nobody's perfect of course but I just what I liked about him was there were when things matter to him like supporting women in being fair to women and whether it was a woman reporter or these W. NBA players weather was being fair to African Americans and making sure they he was so fiercely supported in the other the other example I always give is magic listen Magic Johnson was HIV positive none of us understood it in fact even urban himself when he right before he was a how to go on stage to tell everybody this is what happened to be internal on and once in one rose in his agent months Adam you know what you're gonna say something you know what one of just going to tell them I'm just gonna tell my have aids and lan said home urgent you don't have H. you have the virus that causes age I was in seventh grade or something like that right in our sole so none of us understood the severity and and David stern was up late at night Colleen medical experts all over the world to try to stay one step ahead so he could understand this crisis that he was dealing with and of course you know when Irving retired the first time and then came back and retired the second time and then you wanted to come back when you want to come back the first time that's when everybody starts it will win and I the all star game Jackie right right right we also right but that was that was accepted because that deck didn't count no one was going to you know that no one was going to play too hard that was sort of thing is a one time thing will will and you know that was the Dream Team but then when he wanted to come back following that Brian that's when you started to hear the complaints wait a minute I don't want to risk my life there was and their owners saying Hey I am not in support of this I don't want to do this and and what David stern told was all right listen I'm just gonna tell you right now if we don't do this first of all you can expect a lawsuit and we need that kind of bad publicity the we won't let it H. I. V. person and then the second thing and this was the hammer this is the hammer David stern news and I don't think this is been reported very widely was widely was this okay if you're not going to let him in and we're gonna have mandatory HIV testing for everybody in the NBA and are you all sure that you don't have anybody on your roster that's HIV positive because I'm not sure and this is the kind of and he just he was going to do the right thing by Irvine not because he loved Ervin Johnson because you did because it was the right thing to do and those are the moments when I admire him the most when even though there was I mean his legacy was at stake there imagine if that had gone badly in the attic on rock and remember we know now all about HIV that is treatable that you can live a full life with it but you can't you can't get it from exchanging blind or or I mean exchanging you know some live or or but you know blood if you you know all these things that all these scary things that back then in that climate because I lived it everyone thought will if I get near him and hugs him I might get aids we have aids but this but David store was one step ahead and he was telling everybody you bet I'm you know I'm going to fight this fight and if you aren't willing to I'm warning you these are the things that could happen and now I mean Magic Johnson told me flat out he gave me my life back he saved my life that's what I've been told me and I believe on to saying Wednesday he was devastated quote David star was such a history maker when I announced in nineteen ninety one that I had HIV people thought they could get the virus from shaking my hand when David allowed me to play in the nineteen ninety two all star game in Orlando and play for the Dream Team we were able to change the world David stern died Wednesday at the age of

"I repeat not sound like a good idea to me. It is not sound like they've learned their lesson like their belief is we were good. The problem is just that we didn't like kyri. No. You had some kind of structural flaws with your team, even if guys did like hiree like all that stuff was there and in place and Boston's playing the game. Now we're everything, basically everything has used carries fault. It was all guy. Reads fall, and I do believe a lot of it probably was on kyri. And I do believe a lot of those guys didn't enjoy kyri being there. But, you know, we're talking about car rita's talking about kyri makes you not talk about Gordon Hayward. Easy. This where I think it was Jackie MacMullan attack me by live with career. But I think Jackie MacMullan mentioned this that one of the problems, they had in Boston is that they forced Gordon Hayward back. And so you got these Catholic Tatum Brown, who had done so well, last year without Gordon Hayward and for what it's worth did very well with Kyrie Irving, but Kyrie Irving wouldn't take minutes away from them. And so these cats feel like Gordon Hayward is not playing well enough. He should not be on the floor enders shoehorn them into the lineup. Now, part of that I would assume has to do with the fact that they're paying Gordon Hayward a gazillion dollars in your going to play. If you make that much money and don't think for second that the Celtics when they sign Gordon Hayward didn't consider the possibility that his presence would help them. Still tickets Red Auerbach would have thought of that, just so, you know, anyway, so they're forcing Gordon Hayward into this. It is college coach. Right. So the coach is his college coach that's pushing them through there and who knows what those guys think about Danny aimed at this point. And Danny aimed is pushing this probably also. At least I bet that's what their perception is. How do they go handle that next year? What do you think was worse for morale Carribean a jerk or the other players filling as though, someone who did not deserve minutes was the one who was getting them and it wasn't just minutes who's also like disaster turns? Yes. My Jackie said that they were forcing him the ball to. So if you like for Celtics fans, you know, I'm sorry, but not really sorry if you think you got really your problems by letting Carey walk at town. It ain't no Rieti. Yeah. There's a reason why Horford one in our that, that to me is the most stinging indictment and understand apparently Horford. Horford's gonna get an offer that the Celtics are unwilling to match, but I mean, what are they talking about Dallas Horford?.

I every time I'm with you. It always turns it Noah podcast. It does. Car. Talking about stuff family all the stuff. We're hearing probably half of the stuff we could say to podcast, but those are the best kind right off the record podcast year. The. That one was great off the record like two days of just because that was when Kyrie was like things were really funky with the Celtics and every GM or coach or official from another team was like, hey, you know, usually the guys that like are avoiding you because they know you're gonna ask them a question. They don't want to answer. And you know on that thing they've got like your arm, right? Like, hey, sit down have a Cup of tea. What's new with you? And I'm like l like you really care about me. It just want to know of the Staples for people to go up to get information from I thought it was funny was happening to me. And I'm not information. But all the best people that were there that iron to is the first thing do what's going on with the Celtics. Right. Because it was it was so confounding was late February it was it was and it was really confounding then and it's confounding now because allegedly it solved which I'm just like I did the jump today since his Tuesday with Paul Pierce today. And he's declared this series over because his Celtics have won one game against the bucks. And I'm looking at him like. He's a maniac. I was so mad. You know? I love Pierce. I was so mad when he said that on TV. It's like first of all you're supposed to love the Celtics. Right. There's no up side to this just goes up the Milwaukee locker room right now that you did. And you know, what I said day on the show he said, Paul Pierce, if I had ever said to you when you were trailing a series one to nothing that the series is over you'd be so far up in my grill was laughing because he knows I'm right? You know, and there's just no basis. In fact, I'm making a declaration like that. Anyway, especially with this team because you do not know what this team is going to do from one day to the next better. I know they played better. I know they've won eleven out of thirteen. I know all the metrics. I know defensively defensively actually they've been pretty consistent the entire year. But they think about the game one win when they missed fifteen at all run put on them. Yeah. And they still won the game. I mean, I don't know if that says more about them or the bucks, but normally in big games when they go into those stretches. And they do where they can't score and they can't make shots instead of like slowing down passing the ball around. Everybody comes down. I'll do it. Wait..

There's a lot of. Wow. Okay. That's so weak. Lebron? It's that is so messy that is. So we can say he's too old for that. But he's square the millennial place in this. Like, what exactly are you doing all of this brings us kyri? I've never been sold. The kyri is going to come back to Boston told the season ticket holders that he would come back. Go commercials about those kids and told him that he was only Cleveland a lot those kids to the same way. I would allied to Boston about that situation. And that given time period does he want to go back there when you even want to play LeBron because I find it hard to believe that that would be a situation oath. Ultimately, make either of them happy. Does he wanna be third best player on a team after he just left the Braun to be the best player on his own full this mostly feels like the Bron James poking Danny aines, just like you think you're gonna convince Anthony Davis to come to you.

"And now the low post welcome to the low post podcast live from Los Angeles, California, where the great Jackie MacMullan has made a huge mistake, which is publishing outstanding feature story when she is in the same city as me because that means she has to come on my podcast or because I will not stop asking her to Jackie MacMullan. How are you? I love being on your podcast. Now, can I just tell the story quickly that the last time we are on the podcast? Sure. We're talking about shooting touch that organization. I was involved within Rwanda. And this is how much clout the low post has some gentlemen, from Georgia, whoever you are forget your name, sir. I apologize listened wrote it down and made a very nice donation to the charity which helps kids Rwanda. So that's the power of Zach. It's called shooting touch people. Well, I didn't mean for that to happen again. I'm just saying you got some juice would say it would be a nice coincidence. So I like to do this one when? Writer, I love and no of right, something big. And today you came out with a monster Jamal Murray profile and he's such a smart player to pick. Because he's one of these sort of swing players of the season. We don't know enough about him. Now, we do. So when did you pick him, and like when did you go to Denver, take us through the origin story? Well, I was watching him last year. And Doc Rivers had made an off hand comment to me about him a year ago. And he said you watch him he said he could go either way. That's always a great comment. Right. He could go either way. And so I thought oh, okay. And and so I had my eye on him and Denver star Demer was good and the great Kevin arnovitz. And I had exact same idea. I did and graciously said, no you go ahead. You take it. I think mostly because my daughter lives in Denver. So it was a little bit of a junket for me. I can't think of a better reason, honestly. But really it just was an they were an interesting team. You'll. You know, that's another story we should do. But I just I had I liked the way Mari played he played with a certain amount of fire, and he like motion players, you know, we were talking today on the jump about emotional shooters. Which is what you know. I call Russell Westbrook. So I was curious about I didn't really know much about him at all and start doing a little research started asking around brought me all the way back around to Doc Rivers. And I said all right. What is it about to Moammar? And he told me which was in the piece that he was watching a play, and he was just all over the place mission shots like crazy turn to Lawrence. Franken said that kids going to lead the scorn in some day alerts rags like what are you talking about kid hit a shot his rookie year? He didn't hit a shot for the first five games. I had forgotten about right? Isn't that? Crazy. Right. And so then doctor said, no he he's going to because he thinks he will. And so that was sort of the springboard I went I guess I was in Denver gosh early December early to mid December spent three days there got to talk to. Jamal got to talk to his teammates, the coaches some of the opposing players and then his dad came into town, and I got to speak with him. I actually spoke with him over the phone, but he was someone that I really thought I needed to meet because of course, he was the central figure in the story, and I wasn't going to be comfortable writing about Jamal and his dad, and let's actually got to sit down and meet his dad and talk with him a little bit. So let's talk about the dad because you said he is Roger is is the center of the story and just the details of their workouts. When when he was a kid but push ups in the snow laps before school conditioning, route straight up hill that will run sideways or backwards. He disconnects the TV, no cell phones. This is a sports parent. Sounds like a sports parent. Right. And usually when you get a parent like this. He's in Denver a lot. I believe right..

He thought he was great in the film because he's he covered a scope.

There as wife was ill, and he was taking care of his wife. So he very, very bright graduated high school sixteen, wow. No, all American NYU and. A great mathematical mind and then. So then from there I went to behind because always ready in Syracuse. I mapped out who I wanted. I had a list hallway every city every location because you've got to think of that. You don't want to go into one city and pay for crew, and you know, you might as well get to a day. If you can three, it's exhausting. As I said.

I don't think anyone took a break. Did you find when you were interviewing these guys, some of whom you knew some who didn't know you, for instance, Bill Russell, did you know him? I met Russell once or twice. He actually, I did. I'm favor once and I never asked for anything and he, he actually sent me a book would his autograph which was pretty cool. Right? Does that, but but then the next time I saw me he acted like he never knew me. So that's that's spill. Yes. How Bill and I know. Daughter, Karen, you know.

So how did you get Bill Russell to tell you what happened? Thank you. Two things. Two people that he trusts gave him my credentials, Rick Welsh, dear friend for sincere early eighties and Charlie Rosenzweig from the NBA CHA. Charlie, in the NBA been at Charlie's a star, the th they've been great. They've opened so many doors so they opened it up for Russell. I went to Seattle, never been there when I got to his home and right before I pulled up. I got a call from Charlie, then he's not going to do it. Oh, no, yeah, not gonna do it. I said I came out to Seattle. He talking right here. I'm in the driveway. Yeah. Like when you say and I said, oh, no, no, he hates ESPN. He's not doing right. He does hate ESPN you know? So.

"And now the low post, welcome to the low post podcast live from the remnants of the Jalen and Jacoby studio in Los Angeles where there is no memorabilia left on the wall, and I am thrilled thrilled to be joined by two friends and great writers who collaborated on what must have been an enormously challenging book called basketball, a love story, which is sort of an oral history cold from our twenty hour documentary. Coming up to my left Jackie MacMullan to my rate, grantland brother, rape Bartholomew, how you guys doing will brother and we haven't seen each other for a while. So this is a happy day for us too. So I'm not gonna lie. I had look spectators and I had low expectations. I not to be offended that I, I had low expectations just because it's very big. It's a very, like if I dropped it on table, it would make a large plopping sound. Go ahead try and and I just can't imagine like I don't even know what format. All this material comes to you in because the documentary is twenty hours, which means there's sixty hours. I don't know how many hours of hundreds hundreds hundreds we've received. Well, Jack, you received the physical transcribed which I didn't, which would have been about one hundred sixty five bound. I don't know, leather bound books that would have looked great on on a man I'm getting. I'm having like a mini nervous breakdown right now at the thought of getting all of that and being located. Now you have to turn that into a five hundred page book. And I got them in my son was like, seriously, mom. Really? You can't do this electrically mom, and you know what? Halfway through. I he's right. I ditched them all and I did really 'cause I've, I'm picturing like I want my whole room with the binders spread out and the white. I tried that I tried to heart. This book was hard. It was over the. I used all digital stuff because when we began working on it or when they gave us the transcripts, I was actually living in the Philippines for six months. So there's no way they're shipping a few hundred pounds of of paper all the way to Manila. So I could look at it and digital stuff does help a little bit. You could. If you were looking for a story about some kind of subject in in somebody's transcript, you could control find you had some stuff like that. But we also made an effort to read these thousands of pages because I feel lucky to even see them. You know, this is the primary source material of like the Dead Sea scrolls of spoilt of basket. So that's what this is. And it is literally an oral history of basketball from the inception of the NBA through the warriors. And and again, I was like, that's going to be a lot. And I don't know if I'm gonna get sick of the oral history format. Like when you get those seven hundred page oral histories about like page four hundred. I'm usually I'm like, I'm kind of done with this. I took it to Croatia on vacation, and I just absolutely sailed through it. And there are two things that and then we'll get into the specifics because there's too much good stuff to talk about. Number one, EV, one of the great things about doing a book with this kind of scope. I would imagine now that I've seen it and read it is you have so much to talk about that right. When one section begins to be like, okay, I'm kind of ready to move. You do move on. There's like now have essay about Alan Iverson. I was about ready to be done with the seventy s Knicks now we go on to this other thing and just. When you get people talking at length about their careers in in a sport that we all love. There are just these little tidbits that come flying out of their mouths where you're like, I never thought about that or I don't think I've ever heard that guy say that or I don't think I've ever heard that guy said that about that guy or that that's like just stuff just in evidence. Thank you. Talked to enough stuff comes out, so either one of you, let's start broad again. We go ABA seventies Knicks warriors. What was your favorite section to work on. Well, for me was the racial discrimination and and..

NBA, Depression and Rosen discussed on The Undefeated

"PIN senior writer, Jackie MacMullan sat down with several NBA players to talk about mental health in the NBA, Chris, Bosh, Kevin love tomorrow, Rosen, and Paul Pierce to name just a few have opened up about their struggles with depression and anxiety then be has now hired Dr William Param as its first director of mental health and wellness. Should this prompt the NBA to have some sort of mental health policy or plan for players struggling with these issues t start with you? I would say absolutely. Self care is just as important as physical care and treatment. And to be honest, it just seems logical that players NBA NFL any professional sport that athletes would kind of feel this amount of pressure to wear dealing with depression and anxiety seems like it's something that could logically happen. I mean, you've got pressure from your. Teammates, you got pressure from the fans with social media. They're always like direct access pressure to you all the time. You got pressure from your family. They don't see you as often or have expectations for you and your downtime. You get pressure from executives, especially mentioned into Doron Dhamar under Rosen, who thought that he had some form of transfer loyalty with people in the Toronto organization and then ends up being traded. So there's there and then they have pressure from themselves. I'm sure. I mean, everyone has expectations of themselves. I mean, we're not even athletes in. I'm pretty sure all of us on this podcast, have expectations for ourselves and how we feel when we don't meet them. So it makes a lot of sense that there would be that there will be mental health struggles among athletes. And so I do think it's very important for the NBA to have done. This, I think is also important to make sure that there's protection for them for the players for this kind of thing. Because as I've been reading, I've seen that owners have been saying that if this is something that we do that they want to have. Access to the records. And as you know, most medical records in some form are are confidential, and I think that in their mind, I think the argument is, you know, we have access to the players physical record, so we're able to make decisions on what we wanna do based on a player's physical health. We should also do the same for someone's mental health, and I think that's where I probably disagree with the owners in that sense because a lot of times having that confidentiality is what helps you to progress in what helps you to get

"So there's even level of this layers been, you know, medication seems to me to be a real hot button, so we're de stigmatizing idea that you might have depression anxiety or or ADHD or whatever it is you have, but if you're on Ned, whoa, whoa, wait a minute. That's a whole nother story. So we're we're a long way off from solving all this Jalen rose told you an interesting story in that story and piece right that that was an. Interesting. Well, you tell that store Jackie? Yeah. So Jalen was with the Indiana. Pacers was very, very excited about the trade really excited to be there. Love Donny walls gets there, and Larry Brown's, the coach, and he and Larry Brown off on the wrong foot. And you know, in Jalen my Larry Brown just doesn't like him, doesn't like them Jalen you know, said the next thing, you know they're, they're starting talking to him about adeem course. It's now we know it's now ADHD, but they're, you know, back then they call it ADD and he said, you know, this guy comes in starts asking me questions and checking me out, and and then all of a sudden the Pacers declare, I have ADD ADHD and I need medication and Jalen mind. It was Larry Brown's way of saying, all right, I wanna play this guy. Now I got a reason not, you know, guys at my type, he isn't my guy now. I don't have to play him anymore. So Jalen tells the story. They put him on this medication and takes medication the minute. They leave throws it all the trash. You never took it hit it. So month goes by, and he starts to get the play a little bit. He's playing better. In practice and all of a sudden he's playing the game and Larry Brown and the staff coming up to insane c. you know, isn't this great. We got this control now and you're, you're playing much better and feeling Brown's laughing, thinking Yemen have right and take any details now and the funniest part is Jalen versus it you. Maybe I had it then maybe I haven't now I just didn't want the medication now we'll never know what he benefited from the medication. We'll never know. But you know, it can also be used as in Jalen mine. It was being used to punish him. Now I tried to reach Larry Brown. I think I'm one number behind on. He's moving target is, you know? So I didn't get a chance to speak with him. But my guess is he would tell you, look, I was just trying to help the kid. The kid couldn't focus. He couldn't concentrate. I want him to be the best player could be. You can see both sides to that story easily. Right. Absolutely. Jackie, this is tremendous. I appreciate you taking the time in the series is outstanding. It started appreciate one day. It's on ESPN dot com. The Marcus Morris piece is up on Tuesday. Warning and it runs through the weekend, Jackie tremendous work is always, and thanks for stopping in.

"And so I think he's very, maybe hyper aware because of that. And and I do think the the Celtics are not the only because Asian, but they have really done a great job. I think the Lakers have great relationship with UCLA and of course the Dallas Mavericks they hired on Cox game. Now he's he's not a a psychologist, but he's a sports cycle. I guess he is sports psychologist, but he also, you know, he was there from the beginning and he's just a terrific. I mean, he was I really enjoyed speaking of. I heard him speak at an event summer league a couple years ago and he he's really, really impressive. He is. He's very impressive. And you know, he told me if you know, I, if I can handle what I think that you know they're dealing with, you know, positive self, talk visualization. So that's one thing he said, if they're dealing with bipolar, something else, you know, we have a referral service all the way through the Dallas Fort Worth area. I don't try to take that on. I get them, you know he. So he's not a guy that's trying to say he has all the answers. And so those kind of people, they've been at this a while and you know it was interesting to for done Cox because he was saying, you know, in the beginning, I was just trying to make guys understand like here's what we're trying to do because they didn't even understand that. 'cause he was from Mars. Nobody had a sports psychologist. What does that and you know Adam silver makes a joke in the story about how? Yeah, we used to call him the shooting coach because if you said, well, I'm having trouble focusing or feeling with success or failure, and you say, oh yeah, the shooting coaches helped me. That's okay. But if you say, yeah, the sports that causes is helped me. Everyone's like, oh, what like you're crazy or something, you know. So so the language of this whole thing, mental wellness is opposed to mental health mental illness? Like, I don't believe I wrote that anywhere in all five parts because no. Nobody wants to hear that there's such a negative stigma attached to that and Kevin zone the top that you know we're shooting for mental wellness mental health. So it's interesting and little things like the language of it, you would think wouldn't be a big deal, but it is. It is to these guys, Jackie, how much better prepared do you think the NBA will be? Let's say it's two thousand twenty two in high school players come back in. I think we're all confident its head right outweigh two thousand twenty two seems now to be they thought two thousand twenty one. And now the sense we get is it won't be before twenty two, how much better prepared Lee will be to handle teenagers. That one year does make a difference then when the last time the high school players could come in yet much more. Yeah, they were in Vegas, Tracy Murray who guys probably remember, played at UCLA was also in the NBA. He was in Las Vegas talking to all those rookies about mental health and how to, you know, be able to talk about things and share things, and some. Is that transition program? Mental health is part of that. You know, Adam, silver again, the junior NBA the NBA fit program. You know, he came to an fifty, the smart guys, we know came to an pithy and said, well, we're, we're dealing very comprehensively with fitness in the physical fitness, but we haven't really taken, you know, the players, the whole, the holistic view. And so they've made those changes now. So you know the NBA's all over this and so is the players union. And it's been a collaborative effort and they're not always on, you know, hundred percent on the same page. But I think they both have the same ideas and interests and they know the numbers to, you know, John Lucas said to me, he estimates forty percent at least forty percent of MBA players have mental health issues. You know, I talked to different people that said, oh, it's more it's more than that. And I think the league knows that. And I think the players union that one of the things that it, it'll always be a challenge in its part of Intel gathering by teams when they're drafting a player or training for a player or. Committing to sign a player to a long term deal. They want access to this information..

"Everyone welcome in to another edition of the wo- JR pod my guest today, Basketball Hall of Famer Jackie MacMullan. We talk about her revelatory five part series running this week on ESPN about mental health in the NBA. She talked to some of the biggest stars in the sport and got them to open up about what they're dealing with. What they've dealt with for very long time how the league and teams are addressing these issues for players in the NBA right now, a remarkable series of stories by the great Jackie MacMullan. Here's our conversation. Welcome into Jackie Jackie. How are you? Hey, are you agent? I might the last person on earth that calls you Adrian? No, no, you're not good at all. I mean, I have a family of will just so in my family, everybody's last name is John hausky. So lots of people there everybody's well child, you well. Yeah, but they're not all throwing bombs, right well, in their own ways. Many are. Teenagers, so their bones. Yeah. So Jackie, this is an. I've been fortunate to have read all of it and everyone's going to be able to see all of it by the end of the week. But you publish this week on ESPN dot com. A five part series started Monday. And then Tuesday when this publishes partout and then on the rest of the week about mental health and the NBA it was a long time in the making for you a long time in the reporting. And I think a lot of people may have seen the Kevin love interview on sportscenter and some of the other ESPN shows where he talked on here with you obviously spoke to you for a longer form for the story. Let me start here the idea to tackle this issue, which is not easy to report. It is not easy to get people to talk about it. What brought you to the story? Well, you know, it really started a long time ago with John Lucas, and I've known John a long time, and I know you to Adrian and we were having a conversation about something. Else entirely different, and a player walked by. And I said, oh, I'd be worried about him, and he said, tell me about it. But the thing is Jackie. There's one or two or three of those guys on every team. And I said, really, he said, mental health is just, you know, an epidemic, which, and then he said it again for two years later when I actually started forty this. So it was always in my mind. And of course, for those who don't know, John Lucas was a, you know, a very fine player in the NBA guard. You know, out of Maryland had very fine career, but also had a terrible problem with the diction which she speaks very openly about. And he ended up starting a wellness and recovery program for not just NBA players with all sorts of athletes who have struggled with alcohol and substance abuse. As John makes the point, you know, they go hand in hand with mental health issues. So he's, you know, he kinda got me thinking about, and the other one was Brad Stevens because of course I'm based in Boston and have have occasion. Lucky to talk with Fratelli very thoughtful guy, and he was involved with mental wellness and mental mindfulness. If you will, always back when he was coach Butler. So when I mentioned it to him, I wanna take temperature on it very enthusiastic about it and very encouraging and saying, you know, if you handled in the right way, I really believe some of these players will share and some did some didn't some almost did and change their mind at the last minute. And I respect all of them for the choices they make really do. Tevin love was the focus of day one Kevin log whom Paul Pierce, Chris, Bosh, Damara Rosa. But love was an interesting one because he shared his story initially in a first person piece that he did on the players Tribune you had talked to him. I owe about maybe doing something prior to that, and he may ultimately to do it outside of a story. And then sort of came back to you for this one. Right? So I. Really age. In the reason we started the first part in the first person, which I'm not really usually very comfortable with because my it Kevin just so intertwined in this this and you know, I've already texted within four times since part one rain. I mean, he is this really is going to make this his life's work..
