Anytime, you want to bet against Patrick Mahomes, just call me. I'll tell you I'll take your bet that guy is a magician may yeah, he's crazy. He's like a little wizard back there. Yeah. He's he's a pretty good people already calling him the greatest quarterback. Green adds a little much much right now is. What talented every other quarterback we've seen right? Well, here's the thing. If you just look at his performances, don't think about championship don't think about play but is he the best? Physically. Makeup all that stuff is the the best quarterback of all time. He very well could be. If, he wins another super bowl if he does this year what he did last year. I think he becomes the greatest quarterback and macy's twenty-five. Yeah. Wait a minute. Mace Brady has six titles. How would you put him ahead of schedule understands oils makes you understand it's about the skills you never understand that it's about the skills it's like when I say this is the best in terms of. Team, chemistry in terms of team McKay, in terms of the talent that there that is there i. think that's the most talented team that I've seen in my lifetime for the dodgers doesn't mean they're going to win doesn't mean they're going to win I done in three game series I. Think he's out of his mind that you can't say the teams the best team in the history of everything if they don't win. It. Doesn't that apply to the two thousand sixteen warriors yeah, exactly. That's that's that's what frustrates me want seventy three games they looked like they were the greatest team ever but they didn't close the deal. So that validates that argument I mean that's That avoids that argument sleep. Well, what are you expecting this? We haven't heard from you much. Except on your many shows here. For you. I'm ready I was telling Mesa. Say That I'm a little nervous. What I'm really referring to there is now there's such an overwhelming conversation of Lakers of the favorites when Lebron gets his fourth I I, just kind of caution on that part but I'm interested this Bam Outta by you Anthony Davis matchup not that I, think Bam to buy you. Can can do anything compared to Anthony US based? He's a good. I do not I do not and that was never even discussed what Tim Bontemps said was. A bio is an emerging player who's going to give Anthony Davis trouble. Is. It doesn't seem like the moment for how great would it be in two weeks from now Michael, where you won't stop talking about, do you remember a d. or not you remember but how about Anthony Davis performance in the finals? He gets his first championship I mean who cares wins finals MVP just want to get the championship but I I, that's that's the match I find most interesting most fascinating and hopefully it's a match up. I'll be honest. We all want Lebron to win it finals MVP. I Want Lebron to win I'm with you on that. I WanNa see that records if a one that I wouldn't be, why do you want Lebron over a debate because he'd be the first player in the history of the NBA be finals NBA MVP for three different. Plus by the way made just the play off of it. How incredible ridiculous has Lebron been all season I mean don't you feel the getting sixteen votes out of one hundred and one for MVP? Okay at the end of the day, if he just has the finals MVP that's all that matters. But I I'm with you I I would prefer seeing Lebron just because it's this stage of his career. Don't you agree with Ireland that his championship ring from the lake us he would never wear it out in public. Would you wear attempts to bring if you got from the? Lake Asli Okay I think the only time I'd probably wear is if it's a Lakers event something along those lines, but I'm with you, John, I'm not out there wearing it every day where the pre-game guy get a ring because when I was doing the Lakers pregame and postgame back and death even. Getting one, I did not get a ring as the pre game guy I I definitely don't think getting one. It's in, it's in covid Michael and I might not even get them. I don't know I think the Lakers has been so nice to us. They'll give us one. But it what's interesting is Michael. Before we got wanted this if you're tied Lou. And you get offered both the sixers job in the end the clippers job. So you can coach Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, or you can coach quiet and Paul George in the salaries are the same. What job would you take clippers? Kasese more familiar with those guys and especially if he gets the the, you know the the support of Hawaiian Paul George. So they stay with the guys. Who are already know, but isn't it harder to like the Lakers would be blocking you from getting to the finals in the East you could go you get to the final during. Thank you gotTa have faith and confidence in yourself that you can think you can get past the Lakers Ireland where's your confidence and your self belief in yourself I've seen the Lakers play they ain't getting past..

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.

"Of flopping. People a lot of people thought it was. A lot of diva but. Doc Rivers you know. A steady defensive player out of Marquette. was was was really get defensive player for the Blackhawks Yep and Won a championship with. I can't remember the team that he wanted NBA championship with I. Think Saint, Louis or something like that. Anyway yeah it was. It was Boston. I hate saying that we're. Sorry let me ask you this. Then you know because this. IDEA IN ORLANDO. One of the teams could make it could be. The clippers could be the Celtics, if if the finals was the clippers versus the Celtics. Who would you cheer for? I'm not even GONNA knowledge that. There wouldn't be any Los Angeles loyalty there. You're just by you know if you were said the Lakers in the Celtics, giving your answer are the Lakers and the clippers, but yet have no asher for you there I can't check. That's good shows it a town, still some passion. They're nothing times. Those words there. Okay well. This next guy one of my favorite of all time. Because he to the biggest free throws in NBA All Star game history. Nine hundred ninety seven as well going back to nine hundred ninety seven. Remember this because you. Know Blackman. Landau Blackman Yeah. Yeah I'm. Great for Kansas State Yup. Really the heart and soul of the Dallas Mavericks Franchise. A great team player great leader, they had mark Maguire Yup and some other players. But we're Landau Blackman was. was collapsed and was definitely clefts in that all star game where we're able to win on his free throws spit descending overtime, and we took it from them. What are you remember when he went to the free throw line? Did you think he was gonNA knock him down a lot of pressure. Yeah, yeah, and I think she was receiving a lot of. A lot of trash talk. Remember what he's saying when he made it, but it was. He says saying. Are One. Man or something like that he said confidence baby this baby. Yes, sir. Sharpshooter if you WANNA take a big shot. Do you got. A, better all style gaming is than that one ninety seven. That was a good one. Talent Lana teams. And a lot of bragging rights yeah. Yeah. Whole famous to on that. On that court I. This next one was a teammate of yours for a lot of years. In fact I believe I saw one time. He said that when you were a rookie new came into the Lakers. You going to take these guys spot, but this guy up. Taught You A. Lesson along the way. Pretty tough go. I moved onto Phoenix and Charlotte I. think he was part of the expansion draft. He went to the Hornets. And, We we trade we traded. Retreating Kurt Rambis I believe for. I can't remember, was it? Gliding or Michael are Kobe. I can't remember, but he went to Charlotte Yeah. I came to the Lakers. The number one draft pick. And I was arrogant, but I was really confident. That I could start. In, so walked into the gym and I saw Corinne Magic. You know. Jamaal Wilkes was still small forward yet. Norm Nixon was on the team. And then Kurt Rambis Walton in the gym. On these big old coke bottle glasses. Don't take. Keeping them together. He smell like Ben Gay. He had all these apparatus and I was like you know what he's slow. He can't. I, said I'm going to get that spot. Well within about thirty minutes into the first practice Kurt Rambis, show me what a real power forward was right in the NBA. Beat the hell out of me. Saying you know what I'm GonNa go ahead and sit on the bench. Wait a couple years. Because I wasn't getting Kurt spot. He was monster. Monster out of Santa Clare? Barely made it into the NBA and. The Lakers picked him up and saw he was a valuable Tau Ford, if you go back to the nineteen eighty two championship game. Kurt rambis ducks on. Darryl Dawkins are right hand. He has some talent. Yeah, we just didn't need it. Does that Siamese incident against the Celtics I think it was eighty four maybe in the finals where? Kevin McHale Kevin McKell waxing, and you're the one who. Stops that from really going into a full on because you kind of get in Kurt vices, keep him. It was my first experience in the playoffs. I was a young kid and saw when that happened. It was a lot going on, so my curriculum vision all I saw the body. And I thought somebody was coming at me. So pushed Kurt yet way from Kevin McHale. And now Kevin McHale thanks to this day because. Kurt was gonNA kick his ass. I think I've seen Kevin mcallen Larry Bird that like that was like not even much of a fail just got it. Well, it was. It was and today's game. You be suspended for at least three games right? McKell dangling technical for that. Just to. Keep playing. It! It's it's crazy when you think back now you're right like like the US I think Larry Bird even said at some time. He said the Lakers started flopping around. It's like I mean. You took as head off nearly there. Changed the complexion of the series because. We were angry and that's why I had to play that way in and we we. So they kind of took us off our game, right. Next one here this gentleman, this guy so so towards the end of your career nine hundred ninety one. You guys were actually not the favourite to go through the finals, but he calls an upset and beat the. The trickle into the farmers. I guess I had I'm quarter. This goes the point off for that. And you go here, reporter. Terry. Terry Porter. You know one of the most underrated guards I put him right up there with. With, some of the top guards in the lead, steady, strong or good team leader, bigshot maker. Michael Cooper was really good defensively on him, blocking his shot, but Terry Porter was great Claire Not, too many people talk about him, but he was an underrated guard in the league. Match them up against anybody. From what I hear. He's pretty good Golfer as well. News the best golf their. WHO's the best retired plan. Jordan. Tire retired would be Jerry West. Jerry West pretty good reality radio and I hear it's pretty good right, right, yeah! Michael as well I mean Steph curry is. Steph Curry? Is, pretty good as well. What was the key to you guys beating the places and causing the upset in that? Game One on the ride, and then it kind of like you, health court backing Los, Angeles, and then game six was a pretty close one. If you guys lose, that was woman. Magic throws the ball over his head at the end of the game. Is You lose that? Do? You think he's got to win that series and seven well I. do think Portland was a slightly better team that year. But we had more experience. And we were able to take away their strengths primarily. Clyde Drexler and their running game, so we were able to diminish to keep the game close. Yeah, we can close games magic. We had experienced, and that's kind of where let's with with paid out. After that was a great series. NEXT ONE SO WELL! The opposite this time back in. Back in nine, hundred, ninety six. You guys were favorite in this series, but you ended up getting upset. Quiet time and his team with the coach this team. This is the next coach of that team. Ninety nine Rudy Rudy Tom John. Now he wasn't the coach. He wasn't a coach stand. There was another guy who's the coach. For the Houston Rockets, in ninety ninety six. Oh, was that would that be? Bill Pitch area fits yeah. Yeah Bill fits was. Costa? Celtics for a.

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.

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..

"Like, I think we came out of like the watch riots as as a young man growing up seeing like Jim Brown and activists like that. I don't think in the seventies eighties. As a whole that we were asked sophisticated and as were more open minded as the players are today. I think a lot of us were fray to speak out publicly as much for what we may think we might lose. I think I think it was a a tighter grip on on athletes being outspoken as much. Yeah. You know? I remember saying the sixty eight Olympics. Yeah. And I remember, you know, I remember OJ not being as you know. Yeah. Outspoken at all. And I remember plan when m j and m j wasn't as you know, because I think people were were were were Anna position of gaining. Yeah. And they were afraid to lose. What they maybe they would do something consciously. You know, I've always done stuff in the neighborhood and try to be conscious neighborhood. But I think you're absolutely right. We were focused on the game. And. Tried to gain as much there. So that we may have a voice, but I wish we had been a little bit more vocal about things we were in the neighborhood. We were we were in Inglewood. We were incompetent I did camps and competent, you know, been with gang. So so so it was that we weren't active in the neighborhood. I just I just wish we were more vocal. Like, you see the bronze Obama vocal that with have. And I think social media is has has a lot to do with that you have a little bit more freedom to be. But I think society as a whole is speaking out more than so it's h together as to Richard's point you guys starting that for this generation to now take it one step further think we have some strong evidence. We had Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who's a great active as Bill Walton guys like that who spoke out Steve Kerr played in the nineties. So and you see him speaking out now. So I think there was a. A platform built even before us. We had guys like Oscar Robertson guys like that. Who who spoke out? Ali Muhammad Ali. So we had we had examples to follow. But I just think we me personally would have pushed the envelope a little bit more instead of, you know, land back trying to be safe. So what I hear from that? Is you are not want put words on you. But I feel like you're kind of happy that athletes today getting out. Yeah. Yes. Very very much. So because the platform is bigger. The social media is is giving them a bigger voice. And I think younger generation are are more aware as back in the seventies. Eighties. A lot of people would just say the only people that can speak out for you would be someone who had a had a was popular an actor and athlete now. That's not the case. It's it's everybody. Next on road trip in there. The hair in your food at a restaurant. You return it? Return the hair..

"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..
