"I always remember him by again and watching those games and listening him talk about the game of basketball because as an announcer he talked about the finer points the details of basketball and everybody can see how how you a jump and and Duncan shoots from but he talked about people selling a pick guards using the pick those little finite details, right, but for me, it's going to always be that white towel over his shoulder Yep mm walking up and down that sideline looking at posing and I think sometimes he did that cuz he scared the other team if his players didn't have that off. He'd had him as a coach. Well, I got one image that I'll always remember from Georgetown. I don't know if you you guys remember it. They played North Carolina in the championship. The game was coming down they had to hit off. Ask point, you know, they had a opportunity and I think it was Freddie Brown was dribbling and James Worthy. He threw the ball to James out of the song not paying attention and James dribble the clock out and I remember John Thompson grabbing Freddy Brown and putting his arms around him in a moment. I thought that you know was just devastating for Freddy Brown. I I'll never forget that. You know, that was really something for a coach to do, you know when he put his arm around Freddy Brown and he said he'd probably the most the worst turnover. He could have made in the game when he gave it, you know to James Worthy for North Carolina win that Championship. Yeah. No, that's that's a great point. Do I mean great coaching is understanding how to coach individuals in any given moment. And you know, that's one where you think here's this imposing 6:10. I mean he was he was you know, he was an imposing dude and you'd think he'd be dead. You know upset laying in and you're right. It was like a moment where he needed to be held for like a better way to put it 7 time coach of the year for the Big East India Co DC coach of the year in 85 UPI coach of the year in eighty-seven three times Big East Coast to the year. So on so on Basketball Hall of Fame inductee and 2006 Chicago and gone, but not forgotten coach. John Thompson next somebody that I really was in love with the players that I really had a lot of feel for them to talk about it before I give out of stats, but John have a check tell us about him at oh Heavenly check Hondo.

"Right now, It is true when you think about those times of being and and you do you remember a time when you I just think that you we both had this as black men when you looked at yourself and said damn I'm black and it just came to you just like your the rule and you are in fact, you know, very similar environment the fact that we're here in Boston and I've been here for my broadcasting career. This is my twenty-fifth or twenty-six year off and for my side of it being an analyst. I've seen very few people that look like me you as a writer you seem very few people who look like you and all have a different opinion did that strike you in that way, you know what it didn't because when I was in Detroit before I came here, I would come to Boston couple times a year. And other than you Willie Mae. I really didn't see any black people in in any way shape or form involved with the media. And so that that was what I went into this Eyes Wide Open expect. I came here expecting things to be so much worse than work. And the one thing that I tell people, you know about my experience in Boston is that you have to have the ability to discern between the community with a Boston and the Boston Celtics when you're talking about diversity because the two are not one in the same when you look at the Celtics from a historical standpoint we talk about diversity it is Jim. Not anywhere close as a complete 180-degree difference between them and the community of New England, which is not always been as open-minded and forthcoming two people of color as the same as an organization for the most part have been now can they be better absolutely and they know this in the cells that can be better the community can be better without question but the hits that the Celtics as an organization takes from the outside when it comes to diversity. I just think a lot of that is unfounded and it's frankly it's just wrong. Yeah, and I've heard that from fellow class or or I had a podcast and did it with James Worthy. And and that's why he and I were talking about is like that racist ass Boston. He said I had a uncle who was there I was a big Celtics fan and that but as I tell people I said Boston does not have a monopoly on racism as some people like, oh my God, you're from Boston. Oh my God, they said suck. We're seeing them happened to me not in Boston, but in La when I was living in that when I played for the Clippers episode. So you you see all these different things in your life and posting this and that goddamn band or or comparably so yeah. Yeah and and like for me as someone who I lived in the South lived in the Mid-West and as far as race issues are concerned about Boston of those three places was at the bottom of the pecking order in terms of problems because I think part of that has to do with my job. I think that when people see in a certain position they look at you a certain way and for us I think that's that's been a positive when I was in the midwest covering the Pistons. I mean Detroit is just grimy and gritty and I love that about black do exactly and so because of that is just like well you may be doing this that and the other but yeah you black and so am I so dead I'm just glad you ain't getting no different treatment than anyone else and I respected that I did now in the South different story a few times. I had to check box and.

Ah, lot of pomp and circumstance around the Lakers rings as they kick things off with the Clippers. What did you see last night and where you at at all affected by the fact that the Lakers couldn't plot the W in Game one. Yes. So weird, You know, 71 days after winning the championship Out of the bubble, just a very uncharacteristic season and then try to turn around and play the Clippers. On opening night for Ring ceremony. My experience has been ring ceremonies Don't used to go that. Well, It's kind of like this. Yeah, it's kind of the second half of Of a celebration. I mean, you win the game. Um, you know they wanted in the bubble and then They celebrate. They have a couple of months off. They come back and you actually get the ring. Uh, I didn't think too much away from you know, the season opener kind of reminded me. Of last year's season open when the Clippers kind of dominated the Lakers. However, if this was different circumstances coming out of the bubble You know, with the addition of the lake was made The four new players, they might take a little time to implement them into. Uh, you know the program and, you know, get them connected. With the defense and you know the rotations. Those Vogel has a difficult problem. He's got a lot of scenarios he could use. It was on the other hand there, you know they have a new attitude. They're trying to create better chemistry then they had last year. They lose monsters, but they bring in Ibaka. But it's only gave one of the new season and so I didn't take a lot out away from that game. James Worthy with us here on Spain and 50. I'm sure the Lakers be fine trading those regular season else of the Clippers as long as they keep taking him in the postseason. You know, James, you were just talking about how weird it must be for players to have to adjust to a brand new rhythm. After years of knowing when and how they're going to be playing. You spent 12 seasons in the NBA. Can you take us through what it must be like? Players to have a 71 day off season after the bubbles starting a season in December, just the rhythm and how it might affect their start. A definitely affect you. I mean, uh, you know mentally You know, with no fans and really no family at the beginning. Had been being you know, contained in one area that That that was difficult and my hat's off to the Commissioner and the players. It started out a little rough, but it got kind of excited. Gangs were intense and the virtual fans came into play and I take on television. It was It was. It was doable, but you know, to turn around. For particularly the Miami and Ondo Lakers, Theo turning around After 71 days. I mean, Usually it takes a while for your body and your mind. Tone down to using, you know, have an extension expensive, You know, vacation, but this is this is the challenge that has been put before them. And this is their fraternity. They're protecting and trying to Keep it going on and you know, so it's difficult and I think it effects You know how Well, you get in shape. Obviously. Injuries come into play. Um and just you know, the familiar territory of You know you're traveling schedule, You know. Now there there stand on the East Coast. Longer and teams that have traveled west.

I don't know where I'm at on campus I get lost and these men to this day is blamed out with me not going North Carolina cuz I only play with you know with that program and me and James Worthy and the crew would have been the same class and we would have been really good and then Virginia, you know, it was an hour from my house and they had a few good players Jeff lamp the break of those guys who will talk to you when they never could get over the top and even today. I realized the significance of going to Virginia and I'll tell you why I'm so with ours my mom and dad's house. It was in a cc and I could get a good education web Virginia only if you ever look at only had ever to our members on the team. Wow, and the reason why is that nobody else wanted the room with them on the road? I didn't know that joke over the place right coach Island, so they had to have Mike Goins Mike Owens Bobby Stokes and gone and Jefferson and garden never played that much with Mike and Bobby room and garlic which stayed home. Sometimes he was home. But you know, he had a couple of guys a room with but we we changed the culture at UVA and we bought in six Americans my freshman year to change the whole dynamic of UVA football scores from a basketball perspective and I didn't realize that you know years later that I got out of school. They're not that coach Island include with racist, but you know, no one ever wanted to go there because of the stigma of Virginia basketball. He tried to try to change up in nineteen Seventy-Six eighty-one ACC title and you know two hour from everyone that team by restricting my coins Wally Walker and The Crew whatever but even today even today not Jacob what I look back at one reason. I actually now live in shortsville is come back is because of the stuff that's racially divided in Strongsville with the school and also also the sports piece off there with the something on walking on their lovely Thomas Jefferson lawn a couple of weeks ago and it's in the news that these young ladies or standing up for black lives matter and wage. They put a piece of paper on their dorm room door. Now. This is where Jefferson lived and Alan pulled all these big people live back in the day, but they didn't they didn't face the university. They just put the piece of paper said after you back yet and it's their racism and all that kind of stuff. So all the university is up and up right because of that they like, oh we need to get this going to take it down all the big money people like President. You need to go get that down whatever wage they said that and guess what like four or five people did on the same door as well. So going back and understanding where we were will be been what I've been through there now and understand that it's it's kind of crazy. It's too long to see it evolve..

It's one rebound in one assist away Anthony Davis 32 points, So they combined for 55 14 boards for Anthony Davis, and he had more than half of his rebounds. Come on the offense of glass.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat: From Champions to Breakup to NBA Finals Opponents
"Brian Windhorst you have spent I think the last decade of your life trying to establish successfully establishing by the way that you are a lot more than the Lebron guy after knowing and covering him longer than any other human being in our business dating back to your high school days in Akron and then even through the time you famously up and moved to Miami to cover him there. So I just want to begin by apologising for pulling you back into the orbit of the same son we've been worshiping for now seventeen years well I wouldn't be here but for Lebron I, extraordinarily fortunate to meet him when He. Was Fourteen years old his move to Miami in open the door for me to come to ESPN. So I, Oh, Lebron immensely, and while all of us want to spread our wings as we get older certainly would never shy away from or or tire from looking at this this guy because he's been influential character in my life and thankfully and influential character in the history of the NBA. Yeah. That was incredibly well said but now it's time to get super messy because in this case in this series where there are so many different interesting storylines and angles, it does feel like past might be prologue. I want to go back ten years now. It is July ninth, two, thousand and ten and Lebron James is introduced to heat fans for the first time along with Dwayne Wade and Chris. Bosh introduced to the NBA really for the first time as this big three and Lebron is asked about his plan for winning championships in Miami. Three kings came down here to win championships. Not One championship to Lebron. Tell us about that not too on. Now. Now by. Not. Fix. So at that moment. How did the Miami Heat See Lebron era playing out? Pat Riley thought that that was. The Greatest Dynasty team that he had ever been able to be a part of. Better than magic and Kareem and James Worthy. Better. Than Shack and Dwayne Wade better than the hopeful teams that he had with the next with Patrick Ewing and Allan Houston John starks. He thought this was one of the greatest teams in the history of the NBA. He saw a horizon for a decade where they would be in the finals year after year after year and maybe they wouldn't win it every year and maybe they wouldn't win five six or seven Lebron said, but they would rack up. It was going to be his sunset team. He was going to ride this dynasty out and then go into the sunset and it was an incredible for years. It was one of the most prolific four year runs in the history of the NBA, but it wasn't that dynasty and Pat. Riley, has never one hundred percent ever gotten over.

because there are a lot of been averaging fourteen fifteen all three of the law he six nine K. what but I think it was like a seven footer Lebanese armed what if if they want to look at a basketball

the voice again good again all thirty two thirty one Georgia lady will import you're probably going reporter they will not they may have used up five seconds well North Carolina those with fires and imagery reporter Noga recorded for the we've got hi George it's a one point game at halftime with Georgetown ahead and it would stay that tight all the way to the end in a championship game that for thirty eight years later it's still one of the best internet history.
Shortest NBA Career, Ever
"Royce. It's been exactly ten years this Saturday since James Names on curry who I should note is not related to Steph curry made his NBA debut. I found this story fascinating. Because here's a guy who has seemingly on on the cusp of achieving all of his dreams. And then poof it's over. He's out of the League. How did you go about finding him? It was a really long on kind of winding path to it and it was somewhat of a passion project. Part of me was I was kind of scared. That's a story outside my comfort zone a little a bit to just completely cold call somebody and track them down and find out because you know on the other side of it. You're going to see like the story is three point nine seconds right and then it's open ended after that. Where's he at? What's he doing is the jailing does he oversees? He'd still trying to play basketball. I have no idea you you can put these stories in your mind. I kinda WanNa know about that. And then they kind of just sort of get lost in the shuffle and you keep thinking about it and you keep wondering about it. And that's what level with me is that finally it was like you know what I'm going to find out about this and I got kind of approval to pursue this story and at that time it was like okay. We don't know where he's at. You know he could be still playing professional basketball somewhere in like Moscow or Turkey. You're the Israel or wherever and it just so happened that when I finally got in touch a to a James on curry through instagram of all places. Because that's how you are a reporter in two thousand twenty. He got back to me and he told me to call them and I said so. Where do you live now? And he told me he lived in ended Oklahoma. which just so happened to be an hour away from me so sad to say I mean up? My editors were quite happy that the travel budget got significantly reduced instead of flying to Moscow or something had to drive up the road. Enid so Royce you reach out to James on you find out. He lives near you. You can get his story you were drawn to his story because he had the shortest career in NBA history. Three point nine seconds. Did he know that when I approached him very much so if you type it in on Youtube if you type in his name. There's a video out there that somebody made and it's got over a million views or something like that and it's kind of like a awhile did you fact in the NBA and James on understood that he was basically the answer to a trivia question and not a flattering trivia. Your question was he a highly touted recruit so james on Curry was really a household name Nina and so much so that in North Carolina lineup basketball history. He's a true legend. He scored more points in high school than Michael Jordan ever heard of them. James Worthy David Thomson and he said that record and he was a five star recruit. He was committed in North Carolina. He was a big big deal and people from all around the state would come to watch him play. He was routinely scoring forty thirty. Five fifty fifty five points at night. He had a dedicated beat reporter that would come and follow him around. He was destined to be the next Great College Basketball Player order and thereby the next grade professional basketball player so from there does he get all the offers two big schools fast track to the NBA. Say He did have the office. Everybody recruiting him. It was it was set up for him to go play for Roy Williams at North Carolina and lead them to national championships and get drafted. Be One and done player go the NBA. All that type of stuff was set up for him to happen. The crazy Roese thing about it was. He plays a game against Graham High School and I think he scored forty seven in that game is team was on the fast track to a state title and the next morning. He shows up at school and he gets called into the principal's office so he walks down the hall. He walks in the principal's office and he sees a bunch of police officers officers in there. And he thinks that they're in there. Because I want to ask him for an autograph and instead of that they put him in handcuffs. James on was caught selling drugs to an undercover cop. James is on sold him. Marijuana and his total take Fort Meena was ninety five dollars so while he was dropping shopping. forty-seven on Graham High School. They were printing up a warrant for his arrest. So at that point everything completely changed from didn't take long for North Carolina to pull his scholarship. He was kicked out of school kicked off the basketball team. He finished high school at an alternative school and really at that point just didn't know if he was going to get another chance. So what does he decide to do. Angst as you might believe since he was so so good some other schools got involved but this kind of random place jumped out to him and really kind of hooked victim and that was Oklahoma State University and part of what Oklahoma State had to sell for him was their coach. Eddie Sutton was a recovering alcoholic and he understood second chances and of course he brought him to Oklahoma state because first of all he's really good second of all because he saw something in James on and thought it was worthwhile taking that shot on. So how does he we do. When he gets to Oklahoma state he was good? There was a game where he was playing in Madison Square Garden. Achieving his dream they're playing against Syracuse. And he was part of a big second half running Ron and three on the insist this cowboys happily Dick. Vitale called him a diaper Dandy and it was a dream come true feeling feeling this outboard played one of the greatest games in all time in college basketball history at triple overtime game against Kevin Durant and Texas. The Dow Jones scored forty something Durant scored forty something and it's known as to be one of the Great Games it starts getting you know. Draft Talk. Scouts are coming to watch him play so it all kind of felt like it. It had come together for James on and he was going to have a shot after all. So curry gets drafted by the Bulls. What happens next? So it shows the Bulls and he's he's sent down to the D. League. He's brought backup. He sent back down. He's brought backup. He's bouncing back and forth and in his mind. He's he's not really getting his chance. And he the as a couple incidents that again pop-up form one. He was at the D. League showcase in Idaho and he gets busted on public urination and gets arrested for it the Bulls suspend them one game. And now it's like you know he's got another thing kind of tagged with them there and here's another incident where he's driving to the airport in Chicago Gago. He says he gets lost on the way to the airport and he misses his flight. Going to New York. And that's another strike from the Bulls and in his mind that that was one that like they couldn't get over over. There was a time where their coach Scott Scales kind of told the team this practices an open tryout for playing time and he felt like he showed everybody up he was he was crushing it. He killed everybody thirty. On the court. And the scrimmage and Scott pulled him aside and I think that scowls thought it was a compliment but it really wasn't at least not to James on but he said you're going to be the best player in the D. League and and that kind of crush James on spirits and GE just goes through the season and he just never gets a chance with them and they end up cutting them after the year so he gets cut by the Bulls else and after that he's bouncing around the Euroleague D. League teams. How does he make his way back to the NBA? Hey bounces around. He gets them chances and he gets drafted. He's actually the first draft pick ever for the Bakersfield Jam. There the D League affiliate for the Los Angeles Clippers Clippers and he's doing great becomes a D. League all star and he finally gets his call he gets the call. Uh what happens next so he gets a call up and suit up for the clippers there in Boston. They're playing the Celtics. It's late third quarter. There's some foul trouble issues. Injury issues for Rondo now. The final possession for the Boston Celtics. The James on gets says number called Mike Dunleavy says game with three point nine seconds ago. There's three point nine seconds left on the clock in the third quarter James on jumps up runs runs the scores table and look look comes in James on Curry Hey is first appearance ever in an NBA game. What a thrill? It's gotTa be dream fulfilled hears his my name called out in the arena runs out on the court. He's guarding region. Rondo Sri couldn't have expected it right at this moment a week ago. I sure didn't expect Eddie. There's a quick play run. Not much happens doesn't touch. The ball doesn't do anything other than just kind of stand there with a half. The A reasonable job lookers pretty happy to be down by only five buzzer. Sounds runs off the court and De'andre Jordan. Subs is in for him to start the fourth quarter and he never steps on the floor again and like literally never because the next morning he wakes up. He gets a call from the clippers the next morning telling him he's been
"james worthy" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Brown. ESPN radio analyst Basketball Hall of Famer on the Yuma guest line Huby. Brian Murphy, Paul McCaffrey out here in San Francisco, obviously focused on the Golden State Warriors, and you were in the building last night. First of all, good morning to you and second of all, I'd love to just kind of open it up and say, Huby what was your your headline takeaway from game one? Well, first of all, thanks for having me on the show. Oh, yeah. As I was at the Oprah city. Oh in the army for a couple of years. Wow. Huby huby. I got married there at the old chapel. Yeah, yeah. And then we had our reception at the officers club. Yeah. It's a great spot. Why not? Yeah. To me the most important start. The coaching has got a look at your starting forwards IGA dollar green and the center position bell looney. And causes, you gotta look at this now and say the frontline, Leonard Siachen Gusau outscored us seventy five to eighteen how I've been doing this a long time eighteen finals and thirty one years ago that I've never seen this out like that, right? He'd Cosworth talking about the second and third best teams in the league. No give the defense, a ton of credit because once this Sorrento defense in Milwaukee series, they took a team that average a hundred eighteen during the year number one and held them twenty four points that they're scoring now last night, you say, well, you know, we got one hundred nine I, I admit you got one hundred nine but your frontline got out work the traps were there. The rotations were they? There. But you got to look at the rotations. Now, did you underestimate once the ball came on the second pass out of the traps to the individual? Did you underestimate the guy talent? And a lot of times last night. It was CRM and Gosol. And they hurt you by shooting an incredible percentage. Now that to me, was the most important thing. Well, that's great. I mean this is why we we love talking to you. We love talking basketball here and I gotta ask you Huby after the game Steve Kerr and a number of warriors said, and they and they went to great pains to say it's not an excuse, but they were weren't that familiar with what Toronto was offering them on the basketball court. And I wonder if that kind of goes hand in hand with what you just said that Steve Kerr and Mike Brown and Ron Adams and all them sit down today and say, this is what these guys are bringing at us. And therefore, there is plenty of room for a warrior defensive adjustment. Well, you have to give them credit because whenever it down, oh to against Milwaukee we cherish, they changed their defense completely. I gotta give Nick nurse a ton of credit for doing this. They started trapping starting trapping out beyond the three point line. And then on the wing, and then their rotations were so good. They did not care. They would leave your center alone and use this center either because all our Baca as his own guy in the painted area to pick up any guy that would come off the dribble. So he did that. And it was very successful, because they had three of the best shooters of Milwaukee shoot twenty and nineteen percent. Now did you see that last night? No. Because Thomson and curry had great production in three point ball. But then, again, what about the rest of the people see to me? Coming out of Portland curry average. No Durant now. Hurry, javard fifteen three point attempts and Thomson eight so it's twenty three. Well, they held him down last night, the fifteen so you say, what's the big deal? Well, when you give them eight extra threes between them, they are going to shoot a high percentage. And that's the difference in the game. So give them credit that their defense once again did a good job eliminating on three point area, and then picking up off the dribble. So that's a major plus for their defense now at the offensive an Toronto in the entire Milwaukee series never shot fifty percent from the field now. They made fourteen threes. The game. They made thirteen against you last night. They shot fairly distant on the foul line. They were twenty seven thirty two eighty four give them credit for that. But then the big one, you're negative was your. Frontline, frontline production. You're seventeen turnovers. They only turn the ball over ten times against all of that trapping. You took their two of their top three scores out of the game by Leonard and then also Lowry's. Now they usually get more shots. They struggled last night. They were seven for twenty three between them. But the big thing was, you cut them down in shot at temps. But then they were able to find the free people to hurt you from the foul line down and got to give them credit that twenty-five assists themselves, which they did not do throughout the entire series against Milwaukee. It was a great performance by the Toronto Raptors where you're talking to Basketball Hall of Famer Huby Brown, you can hear them on the ESPN radio. Broadcast, two time NBA coach of the year. And we are breaking down the raptors one eighteen to one zero nine win over the warriors game to Sunday night at five o'clock. He'll be we would love to get your opinion of the individual performance of PASCAL Ceac. I mean the story is one thing didn't wanna play until he was fifteen Cameroon zone and it, and there was a comparisons being made last night, around social media of James worthy sort of like a James worthy, nineteen Eighty-eight NBA finals, and the stats bore out Huby that it was one of the great shooting performances in scoring performances in. Recent NBA finals history. I'd love your, your opinion of that of that young man's performance, who Draymond green said last night became a guy and that was his high praise for Ceac. I think they underestimated his talents. I remember one, but then give him a bonus. He never came out of college with the reputation of James worthy, or the production of James worthy right off the bat. He came out of college, and it was playing in the G league for Toronto won. They won the G league championship with Benfleet. He was the MVP but give him credit because he's worked very, very hard on his three point shooting in the corners, because that's where he opens up. And then there's one on one game off the dribble now last night, the trapping of Golden State was excellent. I pass nobody. They're no shot, the second pass out of detract. I you're sometimes late or you gave them the one on one. Now when you're one on one the Siachen the majority of times he had green on them. They all five straight years in all defense team all off the dribble. He was outstanding. Now, I admit he made four shots in the paint that he could never make in his backyard, or in his driveway on his whole what anybody playing them. You pay planned night. Little baby hawks. Yeah. Awkwardly incredible angles. And then a tap. So that was eight points. That miraculously the ball went in the basket. But give the kid a ton of credit. He's only been a starter. You know part time last year. And now this year you gotta give them credit because most improve the has to be right up there. If he doesn't win the award. I don't know who they're going to give that award to. I know there are good people out there. But this kid is, as insatiable year on the break, he runs the like James worthy. That's where he reminds me James worthy when that ball would go up and out with magic pushing you Scott on one side, yet, worthy on the other now last night, you could see it, it didn't matter, who was in the middle that siato was out on the wing. He has a knack of getting out and he was like a greyhound. Just like worthy cover this space, so quickly. Yeah. Totally Huby Brown. I see it in my mind. I watched some of the cut ups and his his strides down the floor, which is gorgeous. And that's how he beat the warriors in transition. Now Huby that's a hall of Famer Huby Brown on the guest line with us here on the Murph and MAC show Huby. You said you did the Toronto walkie series. So I'm curious to get your answer to this question. The warriors played without Kevin Durant, and use you didn't get to see them in Portland in person without Durant. One of the writers in San Francisco said the warriors appeared incomplete with for the first time since the Durant injury. And I wondered your opinion because I think that might be an accurate description of their offense it appeared incomplete without Durant last night. I'd love your your your vision. Your your eyewitness account of the warriors without Durant. Well, well, first of all. Yeah. When you say Durant, you say thirty four points and what nobody's talking about, is the over fifty over forty entries over ninety all know guys have only done that since the three point line went in forty years ago. So we know missing him his major now, you might not have all of that back screening and picking up picking and then staggering across the top with two screens. That's maybe the ball stops a little bit with the rent. Okay. But let's say let's face the production the production is what you're missing because he bills you out what the shock lockdown nobody can block his shot because of the size and the fake and the release. So he has missed tremendously. But, you know, playoff time people outside is separate Cisco careless. Okay. But people in San Francisco, it's like when your children, you know, around around the table, you know, they're the only ones who care about that poor did the team just lost. Same kind of feel it. I just wanna say. You're coming out of embarrassing Portland. You took their two best scores and reduce their scoring supporting cast could not score. So you have full security coming out of that series that what you're doing and working is going to work. So you put in your first phase of trapping hard to take out the opportunities of Leonard, and Larry which he did. They were seven Twenty-three before, but what you did was you force them to become passers, and they had a great night in assists with Lowery. What nine and Leonard with five and only five turnovers? Don't underestimate that with all of that hard trapping, and that it's difficult to execute and find free people because the energy was there from golden say trapping was good. But then give Toronto credit. Like I told you, they have never in that Milwaukee series, they never shot over fifty and make that many foul shots. Give them credit for going to the line under pressure, and shooting a high percentage he performed an extremely high level. And they got the win in Huby will steal you for a couple more minutes here. We very much appreciate you taking time out of your morning and Toronto getting ready for game to Sunday. And I wonder 'cause you are one of the great Xs and os, talkers you love to talk about the game of basketball itself. And I wonder if external factors ever enter into your question, for example, it was armed pression that there was an enormous amount of emotion and energy in the building in the city, and it almost felt like it became a factor in the game Huby do you buy into that at all? Well, what you have to understand. There's so much pride here in this franchise. If they win this thing, it will be the first time naturally outside United States that a franchise has won the championship. So does somber one but getting to the finals as almost as good as winning now. I know almost you know what quotes but I, I know they want to win this thing badly. But then, again, go back and look at it this way basketball was a hotbed Toronto area. They led the league now for three straight years in a row for a country outside the United States that twelve players in like between ten and twelve over the last three years from this area in the NBA, they go now when France was doing that with Tony Parker knows guys and Argentina was doing that, that was a big deal. I don't know..

"Up next on road trip. And nobody air would allow him to do what he does he gets away with murder out there in the way, heat kicks him and physical that would have been from telling Dennis would eat him alive. I want to ask you a question really quick eater. The reindeer. Randy the reindeer from rubber or. What is man? They're big game. Who in today's game could last in your era that that's a that's a prize? Like like, we don't let let's go not top seven player. Okay. Not top seven. So we take out the bomb. We'll take out those guys the super superstar. Because my even my K D is like K D as a matchup problem, but understand that like Larry Bird, Dr J all of these guys were having like if you were going to be that guy. You had to be willing to fight. Right. You had to be willing to throw punches and fight at some point time to prove to people. So it's like the rules for guys that aren't willing to fight are definitely shaded towards them. They've changed the rules have changed and. You used to defend that was legal years ago for years, but you just couldn't extend it. But I got the top clay Klay Thompson could play. Absolutely. I kind of consider hit when eight nine but Klay Thompson. Quite why seven, but he could definitely do it. He's on the lower. He could do it. I well, I he's he's up there for MVP, right? Like him on those guys are up there in the NBA if he finishes number one, given what he did lash Erla, you know, that's another time for conversation. But I think he would have probably the testicle like lead and winning them be tough guy like Lillard up in Portland, tough as nails. What? No, no longer on the little side, man. There's a lot of players do my era. We'll get exposed like their offensive promise. What might not be as effective, but I think Kimbe is tough. Yeah. I think he could play he has the discipline. I think he could play an era as a tough question, man. I you know, I have to see. Because that's one of the things everyone knows the top took away. But that's the thing. It's like who in like clay's, a great one red clays a great one. Could you're like look he plays on both ends of the floor. He has a unique skill set. He's got the prototypical size for his position doesn't dribble a lot which you know. There is like back in the day was the point guard set up the offense. And then you ran the offense. There wasn't two guards. And yeah, it wasn't. Oh, I'm going to slice through a pick and roll and jubilee back now. So it is a different game. But I think. Who? Reaction. Not with the personality. We had Rodman. I don't think I don't think dri- Mont could handle Dennis Rodman. I really don't. I think he can play. But then it's this had that type of personality. But Powell pound did this was the toughest guy replace against. I don't I don't know. I mean, Draymond can shoot. It can play. I loved them at Michigan state. But with that personality and hold on that, no. No. Did you understand? Dennis Rodman was twenty five thirty minutes. It would be fun for see. But he was point down twenty five thirty rebounds like in his sleep and spending and doing all the personnel that dream on through the green down. So they would all that would be exposed Prager. That would not go as well. And I I'm a firm believer in Draymond and him over achieving for his ability, but understand when you have him over cheating. And then you get another guy that has doubled the talent that's trying to over achieve then you get you. He gets lost. And nobody air would allow him to do what he does he gets away with murder out there in the where he kicks, and he's physical that wouldn't have within Dennis would eat him alive. You could fight and be a technical. So like understand that. I'm not saying my can't fight, but it would be a fight..

"But along this line, I when I did a one on one with magic at the beginning of the season, we were talking about LeBron and he actually admitted at that time that he saw a lot of himself in LeBron. Do you see that given what you engine? There's some similarities of of how if you look at what LeBron has done since high school man guys been everything he's been a general manager. He's been MVP. He's he's he's he's he's he's he's doing this same. He's the same lady since high school traded by Brian. You know, he's got his what they traded me d wave. I was the last one D Wade is best friend showed up. I got traded where someone says I got traded for LeBron do traded by lebeau by so same thing. Got gotta be traded by just anybody else. I've been traded by some bums to now. So, but he's really encountered the business of the NBA. Like, I said he's married to the same. Ladies great, dad, he's conscious about what's going on. And and society, and I do see a lot of of magic. And he they're very similar. They have a plan. They they win year in and year out what he's done to be able to get to the finals every year to Cleveland to Miami back to Cleveland now to LA, which is think it's going to be his biggest challenge he understands where he is as a person, and as an athlete and what business he and he's he's a CEO. He he looks at it. He's a CFO CEO, and he is the captain of his business and on the floor is where he takes care of business and everything else is you know, it's like a bonus. He's just like magic. He knows how to relate to people. He knows how to, you know, talk to the media. He's conscious of what's going on around him. He's a great humanitarian he knows how to use his platform to give back. So he he's he's he's he's thought about it. Then it's not by accident. What are your thoughts? Because I I really feel like the correct me if I'm wrong, but that seventies generation, I don't know semi eighties generation ninety generation when it came to like social issues. Rightly you guys are very, hey, we're just trying to grow the game. Right. And it was thank God. Because the vision that I'm in the position that Braun is in Kobe all of us. We can thank you guys. I remember as a kid watching all the Laker games. And and the Celtics games, and I remember hearing stories about how the games were tape delayed finals games. We're delayed now. Now, it's like forty nights of NBA basketball, forty game forty nine. By christmas. And it was like, you know in our in our lifetime in my lifetime. I was born nineteen eighty and I was right there. But it was like gains were tape delayed. So just to see it in in really generation have to go from the the league being really kind of on thin ice to being successful. As it is is when I look at the social issues on this side, I felt like that generation your generation the nineties generation really kind of only focused on basketball. And I know there's a whole more than an athlete this, and I'm not trying to get into a political conversation. But was that something like when you guys saw things happening or you guys? Like it. Look, I grew up. I was born here central ally in the middle of the crackup democ. That's why we moved to Phoenix. Like you guys saw that. Like, you guys were the biggest show in the world the Showtime Lakers, but right down the street, and my grandmother lives in Inglewood right down the stream it is the most horrific Ning going on inside of the commu-. Just gangs drugs murders every single night. What were the conversations that were being had by you guys knowing that people right down the street were dying for your jersey or or your shoes or like conversations?.

"Say something. Let me just say it, right? Well, that that all that stuff too. But every time he says that Kobe Bryant is greatest Laker. It pisses me off so much and not out of respect. And I get it like that's a respecting. But my thing just watching him. Toby is. Top five top seven wherever you wanna put him argument for greatest of all time. But magic change the game. Scott. Right. Four three magic. The middle. Just what I thought a hook shot a twelve game. Magic was a part of the group. You know, you included Lakers Celtics, and then MJ everyone talks about how he really changed the game. The that. How accessible it was how he helped create Showtime in playing up and down the six nine point guard all the, but it was like yo like Kobe never changed the game the game. Kobe carried the game. Kobe was important to the success of the NBA. But like magic changed the game. And so I just every time he says that I wonder a little bit if he's just he's very humble. And he's he's a great salesman race thousand even before Koby. Became great in dominant. I would always say, and they would ask me who would you pick? If you had to pick one player. Michael Jordan was a freshman. Yeah. My my junior year Carolina play with Kareem who I think is the greatest player they'll play the game. But if I had to choose one player, I would choose matching. And here's why because he and Hance his everybody three times more than other other point guards enhance players around. The magic takes it to another level. He will stuff he wills games. And he he monitors players. He makes sure that they're in there. And then when he when he has to perform he he's done it his rookie year. Yeah. You know when Kareem was hurt he was MVP played center. He he's he's done it all he's a winner. And so you can score as you can have defensive players. But when you need that guy who can wheel stuff, and that's what he does. That's why choose him. Now. Kobe's a great score. I don't know if he enhances people around him like magic does magic can do both. You remember when you had? Visits and colleagues have four or six we know we were able to take five I took one. I tell you one and went to Arizona me and Luke Walton actually went on to visit together. Okay. And we saw enough, and we like, okay, we had six four just you know, because trip I knew damn well that I was not going to Michigan state. Yeah. To damn coal forty four thousand student population on campus. But I heard about Magic Johnson. And I never heard of a six nine point guard and television wasn't big that time we were not getting a lot of big ten. That's the only reason I went I wanna head to meet it. Yeah. Thown man. He had a big afro like the Jackson Five, and he was driving a big Dusen a quarter to twenty five twenty five. He was lean. I was in the past. But see I thought I thought I was. He was he was leaning over like this. If you come to Michigan state, you know. Yeah. It'd be me and you next year. I said magic already heard you're leaving. But I had to come and meet, and so he's he's that type of player. Yeah. When you're taking visits just to go meet a guy that that. That's something. Yeah. No magic. And that was the thing. It's like, okay. If my my my one thing that I hate him. Most is that he's too humble, right? Because every time those things come out, and I'm just like match. How do you not played? His when you met him. You just like damn it's his personality. Just bounces off of you had. He not play basketball. He was gonna do some basics, which is indicative of what he's done his post career. That's where we is. I was gonna ask you what players from today to if you could could play back during your time..

"So all of a sudden. The history came alive again with magic and bird. Okay. The Celtics dominated the Lakers in the sixties. I think they won seven championships against Jerry West, and we'll Chamberlain Elgin Baylor. They could never beat the Celtics. It was like a a curse Jerry West. Never went back to Boston to see us play. All the years that we played in eighty. So when bird and magic came into the league Commissioner stern realized that that was a magical, you know, robbery right there, and they could be conjured up again. So. Bird on the east coast blue-collar fundamental. Everybody was used to that versus magic on the west coast, which was like Showtime fast-break people didn't really accept that style yet. But Commissioner stern saw that. And he also consummated a huge television con contract with CBS at the time. So the NBA started to emerge and you start to see it. He had these two players Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. So my rookie year we played the Celtics four times and preseason. They were like playoff games. I didn't really understand it. Yeah. It was like crazy. I was like it feels like, you know, a boxing match in October. So that's when it began to build up again magic and bird, and we finally met. So so your guys is style was closer to the ABA style. It was clear closer to a lot closer like up and down. Yes. Running gun. I open shot take it. No your shot as a player, if you know your shot, and you can take it a hundred times out of a hundred times. Right. But just kind of know your shot and just go up and down there were more traditional older, a very classic NBA the same time. Boston was Greg lily white yet and the history of Boston. If you go back to the the the the busing go back to the sixties, you know, the history there of of racism, and and a lot of history there with the civil rights movement and all that. I've talked to Bill Russell, and he can tell you something credible stories about living there. He wanted eleven championships there. So all that was going on west coast liberal to pocket and Snoop Doggy. You know what I mean? Even though we had Corinne who played for John wooden. Yeah. You can't get any more fundamental than that Jamaal Wilkes played for John win. You can't get any more fundamental than that Pat rally played for Adolph Rupp who didn't believe in having black players on the team. Okay. So we had all the fundamentals Mitch Cup. Check plays for Dean Smith, I play for Dane Smith. So it wasn't like we didn't know how to play. That's that. We all came from that. But then there was one player. They Magic Johnson. Who's changed the whole idea and concept of how to play with with with a fast Showtime? We all the data that so that rally built up. Up next on road tripping. But every time he says it Kobe Bryant his greatest Laker. It pisses me off. So..

"Spectrum sports studio and big game. Everyone keeps giving you crap for being here on an off day. Yes. Which is. Thank you. Yeah.

Barnes got today. Yeah. Be Scott's really good all the time. And I introduced him to the game. Yeah. I started planning before he did. So Barnes good deficient picking up the game play with him some time. But I put a lot of guys you know, that I that I enjoy playing with and so it's just nice to go out and fellowship. And you get to talk before hours, and you know, tell a few lies and and. So fun. Yeah.

So he knows the build on like, you know. So he's been around me long enough to know, that's especially playing with you know, somebody bar takes game very seriously. And then we women this. You know, we're talking about Celtic robberies today, and you know, Ol- stories that we used to tell the back of the bus and next time you see him, please. Don't tell him. I said, hi, they'll tell. Okay. All right. I'll say I love says, oh, that's my guy. No, I had him. Obviously, he drafted me. That was like my mentor growing up being born here in LA growing up Laker fan. All of a sudden like Byron Scott's. But. It was a bit of a of a whirlwind, but not an eye coast to man old school. Oh, he's re like, I got dab ties Zona Arizona's running gone. We just have a little bit of fun. But did he hold the fact that you with AirAsia with the area on the state what? It'd be like, oh, I never lost told them. No. I'm from Phoenix said, no, he's a why never lost Arizona. And I was like look man like we're not going tit-for-tat here. Okay. That was my guy. But. Can we dive into some of the the Celtic leaker rivalries because I'm just going to be honest, obviously, I was born in eighty eight. So I missed a lot a lot of victory. That is now I I'm seeing the Cavs warriors LeBron warrior that kind of basketball. And so now since I've been here, I'll listen to your stories on the other day, we had rubber Oriana. And you know, he and you were going back and forth. I've heard you talk about the Celtics the kindest form can you educate me a little bit. I'll try. I believe it or not I used to be a Celtic fan back in the way back in the Joe Joe white you have to Google these names. Jo Jo White Paul salad stays the Celtics were extremely popular. They're like the only team that you would see on TV and they were extremely excess successful John Havlicek. And of course, I didn't see Bill Russell. But you heard the stories and so fast forward to like nineteen seventy nine eighty the NBA really didn't didn't have a great image didn't have a huge television contract. And there was a lot of transition from the ABA league. Which was a very colorful got Dr J started in the NBA a lot of players all the all the the best players..
