"He said quote, our energy, our effort and our aggressiveness defensively something that we have to hang our hats on skip. Did you ever think you'd hear hardened? Say this in my life, I. Thought. I read this very early. This morning. I thought my still dream. Changed. Harden is talking about effort and Energy and defensive aggressiveness, and yet every time I turn them on. That's all I see. Obviously. Westford. Didn't play last night. But they're like demons on Defense James's everywhere disrupting blocking shots westbrook. Is Everywhere. But you look down the list. It's PJ and COVINGTON and Jeff. Green. And Austin rivers and Macklemore, and they will fight your tail off on defense ad was having a hard time with PJ Tucker last night in the lane because he's what is he five inches taller foreign. Easy and yet pj just banging and pushing them shoving him anything. He can go get out rebounded, but they're not going to get bullied in the paint. They will fight you back and I don't know where it came from because I always tell you, it's Mike Tony. There's NO D. in the end Tony Right, they gotta have active hands and they know they get some loose balls because they're already gonNA get out rebounded by on average ten to fifteen. They just try to keep it, and so they're going to have to get some loose ball. They're going to have to be scrappy, they go up instantly, James Harden is going to be able to give. Give you heat averaging thirty five. So he'll be able to give that Russia has been unbelievable. So they but skip at some point in time you gotTa, you gotTa stop. Somebody. We see the PELICANS. They think they can just do all offense and they're getting blown out giving up one hundred and forty points. But if you look at James Harden said this I said, I, don't know who else is taking the series as James Harden because you look at those scrimmage games he came to play. He did he came to play on both both the. So he never seen this from it or game forty, nine, nine, eight, last, night, thirty, nine, eight, and twelve. A Asked him of the day.

"I mean. Nobody that high, he's not. He's about six foot tall. Any dropped him. Here. Forty five and twelve. ooh, does that okay. I'll give you this. He has a lot more help than he had last playoffs more. Yeah. Yeah, yeah intrigue. Juniors. This he's been phenomenal. He's been I'm not going to predict like Charles's the Portland will knock your team off, but I think it will be a battle in the way I'm seeing it right now, it's a seven game battle. They don't. They don't shoot the ball. Any better than what the? Police beat them. Okay. You Predicting? No, I'm not. No I'm not who does what you want to have happen happening. This will not this will not be a warriors maverick series, win the AC, Barrett Barron Davis, and those guys a whole different story that was a complete utter underdog. I wouldn't call these guys, hopeless underdogs, stop it. Scare. For Thirty two games. And, other teams want fifty one that's not a hopeless under not no Zach Collins. They want hold on. Let's get bigger and thirty two. Yeah. Now we got one. Would you give me? What will you give me in this? Will you gave? Games. Okay all right. I'll think about it. Let's see if they get. About thirty. Five Games in and Lebron had to sit out a game in the bubble last night. The reason given was due to a sore right groin. The Lakers could have used him as they dropped their second game in a row and have now fallen into two and three in the bubble. So skip I'd actually like to start with you here. What do you make of Lebron sitting out? What do you make? Look I realized this league frowns upon. Especially Stars. Suddenly, taking off games arrest. Especially, marquee national. TV. Games as that one was last night and I, think we all were waiting to see Lebron and a D versus obviously Russell Westbrook and James Harden Russ also sat out for rest you can't tell me they said he had some kind of. By Ruse Die. But when it comes to Lebron. James. This just makes me sick. It makes me cringe. It. It makes me feel some shame for Lebron because he should just own what he just did, and he won't own it. He keeps reaching for this same old tired. My Groin hurts excuse and I don't believe one ounce of it. I. Don't believe Groin was hurting at all last night, but it's easy to sell it to the blind witnesses out there because obviously he did two Christmases back, rip his Groin and he missed a large chunk of the season. So Game Twenty, seven games. So we get that but. There's no. Shame, for Lebron, James, just to say I I just need to rest the playoffs are not much more than a week away. Correct. He's nearing the end of year seventeen. and He's played the third most minutes in the history of this game, and it's Ok to say, Hey, I just I can't play back to back this close to the playoffs when we are sprinting to the finish. There's nothing. Zero Shame. In that, I would have no problem. In fact, I would applaud that. But I don't WanNa. Hear the Lakers announce his groin a sore because I don't believe there's going. Yeah, you think it's. The problem is. His pride is on the line in his ironman reputation is now at risk and he said earlier this year Lebron plays one thing about Lebron Lebron even went third person. Hey. I'm iron man. Really interesting. We'll wait a second. Michael Jordan. Played all eighty, two, nine times even at age thirty, nine in his last year in Washington played all eighty two and that that huge less dance season in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, eight, and Chicago. He played all eighty two because in that second three peat in Chicago, he played all eighty, two, all three times, and that last year in Chicago, he played all eighty two while winning the scoring title and making first team all defense well. You can't compare. That's freaky right there. We Lebron, and get a year and a half off. Well, it probably helped him a little bit. But boy back, he just kept going eighty to eighty to eighty two. The Rana Dude Lebron's played all eighty two, one time two years ago and gloated about. To know that we could do it. Okay. So what have we seen he load? You annihilate, Leonard. You ridicule why? Leonard, for load managing and that's what Lebron has done at least three times this year Iheart back to December twenty second. He said he had a thoracic pull some some classic sort of core fickle really. That was December twenty second. No, you're getting ready for the clippers on December twenty fifth. It's okay. Just accept it own it and own load managing because that's what you're doing, and there's no issue with it. I have no problem. Then what happened at Oklahoma City on a back to back on January the eleventh. I Have A. I have a cold call. You have a cold well that was on a Saturday night on Sunday night. Guess who showed up on stage at the bad. Everybody should have been wearing a mask that night because he was sick, he had germs. He was contagious. He's up on stage just moving and grooving bad bunny way to go abroad and I'm saying Baloney I'm calling Baloney on this which led to February twenty seventh at Golden State. And here we go. Again for my groin, hurts stop it with the GOIN- hurt. Roy Kawhi, Leonard, you gotta you gotTa give him some credit. Once he went bobble. Played. In all three scrimmage games and all four regular season games in the bubble, all the restart is all colliding on. Need him do. So all of a sudden who's load managing Mr. Charvis. Guy It is your guy. So accept it own it and I will not criticize how do it like this. It would be hard for me to believe that it Lebron had been playing well..

"Buddy men. Today highly entertained while the say that much good morning everybody welcome to perceives I on a Friday morning. Nick Rights Kevin Wild Chris. BROUSSARD's all Latin last. is well some of us aren't why funds. To our lamps into our right at. Trysofi some of us don't spend a long morning, but we've got a great show coming up. Ben, Simmons is now out indefinitely. Does that alter the future of the seventy sixers? We'll talk about that the clippers can being sniped better for real after last night and has the clock finally run out on Congress we will hear from Tom Brady himself coming up but we gotta start using the NBA in the bubble last night with the marquee up. Well, it could have been the marquee matchup Lakers rockets but Lebron was out for the Lakers Russ was out for the rockets. James Harden was your one man show thirty, nine, eight, and twelve for the beard as the rockets screws to a win. That's another loss for the. Lakers. So. If that dies wasn't the marquee match, might I suggest Blazers Nuggets because wild? What time is it? Dane time stained time now will be also be daytime at the end of the show. It's always dame time. Staying. Time Damian. Lillard forty five points twelve boards and eleven three pointers last night. So Blazers get another win there. Now, just a half game back of the eighth seed here is dame on the state of his Portland Trailblazers. I'm always. Optimistic. Situation especially, a situation like this. and. It was also why? You know months ago when are saying, we don't have a chance to compete for a playoff spot I don't WanNa play. Because I needed if we did have a chance to click workouts spot. Would it would look something looks right now. All, right. So Nick. Your Lakers could be staring at a first round match with wild. Red Hot Blazers to the Lakers be concerted this point. Absolutely not but. Listen, buckle up I got a lot to get through right here. I'll try to as quickly as possible first of all, shout out to Darrell Maury James, Harden's Houston Rockets for hopefully winning you guys some money and me some money last night told you at the end of the show the rockets were GonNa roll the Lakers to exactly what happened that's first of all second shout out this morning I'm like hot ninety seven shout outs everywhere. Shout out to the Denver Nuggets for a little. A little manipulation of the playoff bracket, which I'm all for they. They see the blazers coming. They see the Lakers potentially being wobbly. So you know what they do will Barton take the night off Paul millsap. Deserved, you've been hurt you're still out Gary Harris junior that's four your top eight players not playing despite that the nuggets at a fourth quarter lead over the unbeatable dominating Kevin Wild Portland Trailblazers. So the nuggets went even further and said Nicole Jr you've been playing you don't need to play anymore now he had an implying that well Chris broussard third in the MVP eight points last night but who cares so the nuggets wanted the blazers to win the blazers eventually obliged and so I'm very excited because it's a tradition unlike almost any other in the NBA in American. Sports a late season regular season. Swoon of a Lebron James Team that makes people say really foolish things I'm old enough to remember all the way back in two thousand eighteen when that cavs scene was such a mess folks went on television and picked the Pacers to beat them and then had the raptors of massive favorites. In that series I'm old enough to remember in two thousand sixteen when that was the year that the rappers we're going to get through her in two thousand fifteen when the Hawks my God, the Hawks, the cavs don't have together David and what happened. The Lebron James Team did not underachieve they overachieved in fact, what's the last time? A Lebron James Lead team underachieved in the postseason you could argue two, thousand, fourteen, the finals loss to the Spurs I would say it's been all the way back to two thousand eleven. So No, I'm not worried about the blazers I'm not as convinced as you guys are that this. Will even be the match up we get. But the rest of the West because they are accurately and acutely worried about the Lakers broussard the rest of the West is GonNa help the Blazers along the way you had the nuggets help him last night and Saturday you know the Blazers play the Los Angeles Clippers set your watch to it my guess is collide Paul George. Had the night off because the whole West would love the Lakers to have a tough first round match up. So the blazers will be tried to be pushed into the postseason, but no I'm not concerned about it crisper sort. You know with all the that says to me. Concern. Right you are guy I I to America He. Let me keep with the premise of the show and give a shout out myself to the Portland Trailblazers. I'm happy for these guys you know Daimler we noise he's one the best players in the League and second by the way on my all MBA valid my official ballot. As. Guard but Damian Lillard is playing great. I'm happy for the Blazers because they're healthy Zach college is back. Of course you have nurtures play a really great ball is back. So shout out to the Blazers I couldn't be happier for this team. They will be the age see Nick Right Market I. Don't even think Memphis name is going to be in the playoff playoff play in game I think it's going to be Portland and maybe Phoenix or somebody like that. But Portland's getting there all of that said..

"You love these wireless ear bugs get 15% off by just listening to this program by Ray conn dot com slash Patrick make love. And what do you have for me? Today is a poll question. We actually already put up If you had to bet on one of these two teams, the Lakers or the Clippers come out of the West. Who would you pick? Okay, Just put it up right now. I'm going to guess the Clippers are going to win this. I think because of the uncertainty with the Lakers, you know when you're the number one seed, you tend to overlook some of the blemishes there, and now all of a sudden it's being brought to light as we get ready to start the postseason. Look, this could be really could be manufactured by the media that this is a real problem. You know, Once the playoffs start, you know LeBron is going to take over. Anthony Davis hopefully takes over. It's not a deep team. It feels like they're going to be hot and cold. Their nights are going to be hot and cold. Where's the Clippers? Probably are going to have a little bit more consistent performance throughout the postseason. Kyle in California joins us. Hi, Kyle. What do you have for me today? Take on one of boys. Happy Friday. Thank you. Depose. Wasn't the interview Reggie Love here and her magic. I have to push back a little on the Lakers having more pressure that seems like The automatic answer, but she stripped away the purple and gold and LeBron. You're looking at a Clippers team who gave up four first rounders, a young star and she's guilty. Danilo. They sold the farm. They sold their soul to try and win it, And they only signed these guys to a two year deal You don't want this year. When everybody's talking about how we only have one more year with quiet, Paul George Better get it done. I think those air really valid points. Kyle, I'm glad you brought that up. I think the pressure on the Clippers will be next year. If they don't win it this year. LeBron's window of opportunity is closing. He wanted Anthony Davis. He wanted some of those younger players shipped out. He got what he wanted. There's always pressure on LeBron. There's more pressure on LeBron because of the bigger picture of what it means for the you know his place in history, his legacy. There's more pressure, and the Lakers are obviously the team in Los Angeles. There's more pressure on him. Not as much on Anthony Davis says there should be, but there will be not much pressure on Paul George. But there should be Quiet. Quiet gets a little bit more of a hall pass with this. Just because of coming off a championship. He's got to that He's won. But, you know, come playoff time. The Clippers to me have a better team. But I think that if if you said I could have pulled Georgia quite Leonard or I could have LeBron or Anthony Davis, I'm taking LeBron and Anthony Davis come playoff time. We know that LeBron could do it. We know Kuiken do it. It's going to come down to is Paul George A great number two guy a consistent is going to be able to put up some big numbers to compliment. No, they have other guys that are able to provide a lot of different offense for them. The Lakers are a little bit, you know, for offensively starved. Cosmo's got to be more of a threat. You know, I was waiting for him. Does he? Maybe his growth is stunted there by playing with LeBron and Anthony Davis, but he does have that potential to be a 20 point score. They just shipped out the 20 point scoring Brandon Ingram, You're talking about pressure. But what about the maybe the player who would have the most to gain for winning the title? If you took away LeBron in those guys? James Harden is of regular season phenomenon. His numbers are crazy if you look back at him He's doing right now. But in the past seven years he's got to Western Conference finals losses and a lot of playoff appearances and a lot of numbers, and that's it. He most again? Yeah, trying to think Who else would be on that list? Because LeBron has a lot to gain as well with 1/3 team doing it in the West. Andi, that gets him to four titles here, so he does have a lot to gain. Kawai getting 1/3 title with the third team If he did that before, LeBron did Paul George finally winning a big game? Ah, Who else would I put on that yacht club? Is Johannes on that list yet? Close. Close. Because If you win a title now, all of a sudden, you're the best player. Hear that There's no argument there and maybe there is no argument, but I think people still look at LeBron James or Kwai Leonard Crunch time instead of the Greek freak, But It's getting close there. You know that you if you're going to get there, or you're supposed to get there, then you you know you're supposed to win a couple of these titles there. If you're that great But that may come down to is Chris medals and able to be great. All of these teams. Most of these teams have that one figure that you count on its the other guys that you don't know if you can count on me. I did watch. I took your assignment. Yesterday I watched the Mavs. Those guys who aren't poor Zynga's and art logic are not great. I told you that that you should give Don check credit because that's not a good team. I who are they that I mean, there are a lot of teams are watching the bubble. I don't I don't know the names. It's like you turned something upside down, and then whatever falls out, then you get that, you know, like you have. Ah, ah drawer and you've turned upside down and some change comes out. No dollar bills come out, but some change comes out. So that's what the Mavs got. They turned the drawer upside down, and they got Of penny and a nickle and a dime and others 1/4 there. So we're going to go with that is the whole question. Yeah, we have some other options for our two and three as well. Pat, 40 from Sports Illustrated will join us. You know what he thought of the back and forth between Ryan Day in Ohio State and Jim Harbaugh. I loved it.

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

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

Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.

The Past and the Curious

The Harlem Globetrotters

"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then

"Category for The pyramid racking overrated underrated properly rated James Harden properly rated. That's how I feel properly rated. I think I think people have immense respect for what he's accomplished pushed like when Daryl Morey comes out and says he's a better offense player that Michael Jordan he's the greatest offensive player all time. There's like just there's some outrage but there's a a lot of like I mean it's not totally insane like his numbers culture. He's actually that good like offensively he's potent and I think Some of the playoffs playoff skepticism. While that's often and overdone trope an NBA meteoroid all-sports media. Like I think some of the skepticism is warranted like very much so and and so I think he's properly rated final pyramid ranking thirty six. I'll just list a couple people before and after damn excited to hear who's before so so this is a list. I think I'm the only one who has it where I moved people around for the last ten years Jason Kidd thirty eight Steve Nash. Thirty seven hard and thirty six and then the next tour Cowan's it won't free so you start moving into once you get in the top thirty five. I have I need to see some championships. I just do so. The next. The next President Willis Reed over James Harden or otherwise very hard arguments to make I know Cowan's read Robinson Rick. Barry so John Stockton. I have thirty. That would be the flaw in the argument. I'M GONNA have to Redo this this part of the list but John Stockton is like freak. The other thing is me. He played for twenty seven years. His League lead his all-time lead in assists so so preposterous like career assists. It's like he lapped entire field so the thing with hard in his thirty six. But I'm also only judging for these ten years if you're saying if he's going to do this for for a couple more years now you're going to move into the twenties pretty easily and if you win a title I mean saw with Kawhi completely changes pyramid destiny. Yeah you you know. I feel like if you make the finals that counts like Barclays and you play well from an individual standpoint. It's not the same as winning a title. But if you did your job and you came through in the clutch and your team just wasn't as good. I think that like that's a powerful thing. That's a powerful of Jerry West. I had never won a title but he was Mr Clutch and it's like never his fault. He rises to the moment every time. No one holds his one in seven finals record against him as evidence instead he was somehow not up for the moment right so like if James Harden never wins the title but he does get to the finals he puts up like thirty five. Five and five makes a couple the big buckets when they really need it has like moments like that's that should almost replicate a championship in your rankings. I think and if he doesn't then is in that George Auburn range but probably with better stats the stats are going to be the stats are going to be crazy. Damn if he does this he's not GonNa last forever again as long as Russia's on his team but the people just don't realize the moment like when you zoom out in five years the stats are GonNa be like. Oh my God. What happened hard and took this goes to you? How crazy basketball is the last ten years hard and took a thousand and fifty nine threes right? Last year the Celtics took like three hundred eighty three threes in nine hundred eighty six. It was like a sign of weekday entire team they average less than five threes again and harden average twelve the game. So it's like how am I supposed to compare these these two kind of why didn't even have a three point shootout at the All Star game in the eighties like it's like we sell you. Had this shot that but nobody was actually taking a game so we built a whole event. A whole carnival event around like. Let's have a three point shootout champion. It was weird because I remember vividly going to the Games the first year they had the line had and seeing the line the seven eighty celtics and it was like. Wow that's weird. It just stood out in the court but then seeing people shoot. You're shots behind. The line was really new and exciting. Zimmer Chris Ford was the Celtics Three Point Guy Bird really take a lot of them no But Chris Forty. There was like kind of his thing. It'd be in the corner in the crowd. Like oh you know but we didn't really know what it was and bird was the first one that kind of realized. Oh Oh this can be a device. That's used in big games. Maybe we shouldn't all stand inside the foul line. Maybe we should. Yeah stand around somewhere else or maybe from momentum momentum standpoint if I make this swings Domenico the most famous when he made his in the game six eighty one final he makes one in the corner that basically isis the game. I think I think that was like the first advice. The game three pointer made Beagle through the even through the mid eighties. Nobody really figured out. And then like those. Dale Ellis type started culminated. eminating up. You know it's an underrated. It's not an era comparison thing but you sometimes forget that had happened. And you're like well that happened but short of three point line for three years in the nineties and likes likes to every for a while like every record about three point shooting was continue would do the basketball reference search and be like ninety four ninety five ninety five. Oh that's short in the line or member Glenn Glen Rice. who was like his exact distance where he was he for a while? He and that was the Scott Steve Curling man. These guys were just destroying. Oh that's right. They moved the line in by like two feet are wonderful. We're going to feel that way when they just get rid of corner. Threes in about five years. Woo when the three point line kind of ends. And there's this that's it for they do like baseball's version of the shift where you just have to people standing in the corner In three people playing defense more gimmicky defense in the NBA. Curry's been a fan of the full curve like why can't we just fun. The full core presses. I think the biggest missed opportunity in the league the players would just never try hard enough for it. It's allowed eighty two games all right. We Digress and James Harden anything else. We left everything on the table. We didn't leave four point five million on the table but we left everything else we had and then table it. No I don't I don't think we I don't. I think we left anything on the table. Except that there's a lot left still on the table in terms of his career in like the he's still writing he still gets to write his chapter of MBA history. And and there's the warriors are at doors are dead now right. I mean the West is widely year the for a year. Oh don't start stirring the pot no would have been. Well I guess I guess yeah. The warriors are dead for a year from now are the worst thing. Healthy Steph drained clay championship centers And whoever they trade Diangelo Russel so for maybe like let's see what happens this year. A Big Opportunity Zach Lowe.

I know that the first thing we think of when we look at Russell Westbrook look at James Harden and their usage rates of of last season the style of which they both play. How're they GONNA fit together? There's a lot of questions that come along with it but to me that aside this improved the rock esteem because you aren't getting what could be one of the best backwards in the N._B._A.. Coming into next season you've got a player in Russell Westbrook who has the opportunity to take off some of that responsibility of James Harden and I think more than anything when we talked about the Houston Rockets and what Daryl Morey was going to do the desire they had to potentially trade for Jimmy Butler a lot of the moves that they were looking tomake there.

"I know I know I know, but I'm saying from the standpoint that the that those are the next guy's number two options, right? I don't know because I think appellate this fits perfectly would James Hardie. Okay. Okay. Out of his Capella after Capello who was better who wanna rockets is better than Malcolm broad, nobody. Nobody who wanna rock better, nobody robot. Okay. So they have better support game right now. But I don't know if that should that be determining factor navy p to me it is because we talking about the most valuable player because I'm gonna go to him as worse than other one facts. I understand that. But let's go back to like previous MVP's like last year who's the less hard. He had the same exact same right before that Russell Westbrook. That's that's the definition of caring team. Because that's he was not very good years before we had we had Steph curry who steelhead Klay. Thompson was not a fantasy remind being my vote. He didn't get my not at that year. He he was supposed to get it because they were on the seventy three games. They was they was crazy dominate Janas offering to winnow damn seven three. But the Pri the year the first one that he wants James harden or. Two-time if you know somebody even three I know that I wasn't going for curry. But to me about it, you gotta take so much for me. Personally. I don't know how everybody else do when they when they vote, but I love this the story line that goes along with I think that's why James harden has hand fourteen see and now they're back up to one fourth. Any not only doing score on by. He's giving out ten to fifteen says a game. He's getting the rebounds that he had a lot of good rebounds late night game as some crazy precise passes. The warriors were pulling away. Mouse has also through that lob clink appello. He had his back. Yeah. That was a big one. So yeah, we gotta we gotta tip couldn't cappella to. He really held it down form. Like you sell. Some rivers was real big. When I shall the question. When Chris Paul went down, I cannot remember everybody's initial reaction. Or was there a sense of like Danis differ 'cause they were struggling already with them. James harden had missed like three or four games. If I remember when Chris Paul went out with the reaction. I oh, man. It was another blow today team. They were going to lose Chris Paul again. And it was I believe it was a hamstring injury. Something against another hashing, right? He can miss a couple of weeks. I thought it was a fourteen see more hanging around that area. James harden already in and out. And then you lose Chris Paul develop situation. I think more my reaction after that after the injuries like they're going to be paying him forty million dollars. If it's they gave him max contract. He's already declining the day after he gets that max that they were. I think even when we talked about them during their their days where they were struggling we always said they're going to make this is not gonna miss the playoffs. And I think even gone now he's struggling as he's planning out. He needs to be there for the playoffs. That's the biggest thing. He just needs to release some of that pressure. James? I'm honestly with Kenny my whole reaction to this whole thing. I love MVP talk and all that is fun. And I like the fact that it's real close because. I'm with hard and right now as of Jane where he fits buffet byu fist. I might be right back with John because we can't ignore the doing. But as entertaining as this is fun as is. And I think I'm all I'm also remember this LeBron is gonna patiently let himself do what he had to do. And these Lakers one in four when he come back all it is hype..

"But he's for sure in the conversation as the greatest offensive player, ever, Shannon. Can you make that case harden is the best ever? No. He's not the best. I can't make that case. Not even if I'm Johnny Cochran Jerry Smith, I could make that case Durham Maury said he's not in the conversation. Now when you talk about office players get you gotta take out of the Kuwaiti because if you average fifty point four season and then. You follow up with a forty four points. He has to be removed. 'cause those numbers are never going to be what he's what he did. That's never. But as great as James harden played he's averaging thirty three points my door never thirty seven four season. Thirty seven Michael Jordan average, thirty seven points. Call me average once average thirty five so in my lifetime what I've been able to witness. Yes, James harden, then that Colby Jordan discussion because all these guys are were volume shooters. Now, Jordan was a little bit more efficient than Kobe. And James harden now the guy that gets overlooked because he's not a volume shooter. But he's way more efficient is LeBron the broad averages twenty seven points a game pork career. I just not the volume shooter. But what James harden was able to do is get what made last night's like, I said, it was so impressive is that. Yeah. He got forty four, but fifteen assists skit, we seen him have sixty point triple doubles. Who does that normally guy scored sixty he might have five or if he's lucky? Yeah. James harden has what three games which have fifty points and the triple double. So that's not we're not normally used to seeing that. But for me if you're going to have the game as wide open as sales and you're gonna put Michael Jordan with no handshake. He'd average forty five. You put Kobe in today's game. Like right now he'd averaged forty two. Okay. So James hard. He is in that discussion. And there are more against it. This is not GM speak this not coaching speak. He's that good. That was well said, and I agree with that. He that he's that good. But like I said skip his visas up to date he'd be traveling. But they don't call it. And they beginning of. Can you imagine if they call files for Michael Jordan like they did James hard? He was literature twenty free throws, it just wouldn't be exactly. So I think might water eighty eighty two percent a career shooter. He would shoot twenty free throws tonight. Sign for Kobe. But he is in the discussion on the on the on what he's been able to do. Skip when watching win a six man of the year in in o'casey may a pretty it's getting nobody thought this James harden now, I did not see I did not think he would ever be this and not he's even gone up a level from when he won the MVP, and you can make a case he could have won to MVP, but not this not this. So I will agree with your conclusion as of last night. I am I'm ready to put him in the conversation. And that's a lot for me because I didn't use to go that far. Right. I will also say this for this stretch December into January. These eleven games are twelve if you want to go back and twelve he's shooting forty two percent from three. Well, if he could sustain that at some point you'd have to say, yeah, you. For two to three he might average forty four to seize. He he would because that's unstoppable. Yes. Because as great as Steph was through his two in VP runs. There were nights when I thought Steph was the greatest offensive at ever seen because it's just if you're gonna make forty foot three point shots, you're gonna shoot forty some percent, right. Then that's nobody can stop that. But James is a little taller than staff. He's six five and he has a little better. What I call slither through traffic in the lane. I don't know. How does it?.

"Good morning and welcome to the KNB our morning show with Brian. Murphy yen, all McCaffrey. Six eight sports. James harden, James harden, James harden, and in conclusion Polly James harden, so much James harden is it is my frustration. With my inability to play the key and Peele whoop to kick off nineteen. I was actually I'm thinking. Itchy trigger finger perfect away. My hand is quaking when they were always seventeen at halftime. I was thinking well among other things on Friday. We get to hear the womb. And I was like do I go gas? Do I go no gas pedal? I want to decorate it thinking, it was a holster my my trigger finger. It would have been a twenty nineteen little little welcome party little, hey, the guy who Texas in yesterday and said man, it's been three weeks. I haven't had the coffee WTN. You know what I'm saying? And it's been kind of the same way since we heard the buffet. We gotta wait again. Okay. Just waking is there. Anybody out there that doesn't know at this point in time. That the warriors blew a seventeen point halftime lead. Which I read is the biggest blown halftime lead since. No. Seven hundred triple check that. I didn't hear that staff. I did read that shocked me, you know, you read stuff I would have thought on some January night. They would have blown some seventeen point halftime lead by parking. But anyway, we'll double check triple check. But if you missed it James harden was simply spectacular last night. In some ways, we could sit here for the next four hours dissecting what's wrong with the warriors is the Oregon are they not deep enough. Do they miss a center are they shooting too early in the shot clock? Do they get to eyeso- heavy late in the game? Or do you just say, holy Jesus. James harden, did something super human. Okay. That's what it was like to worry. Are we gonna do for the next four hours a day? We're gonna we're gonna pontificate. We're gonna want harden upon those theory riffs, maybe. Yeah. Because it's not like the warriors played a bad game last night. They overall thought they'd played pretty well. We're talking about it yesterday. Look we want to see these guys come out and show us a good show show us a good effort tonight, which they did. There was a lot of ball movement. The guys generally were hitting shots. The first quarter was probably one of the better first-quarter. They played in a while. They came out looking good like the dubs. So it's not like they hurt themselves. I just think they got Al played by a essentially one guy last night. Crazy one guy, by the way, just parenthetically among the many thoughts and last night. Let's imagine hardened does not make that historic three. That were not you got a revolt. Storm in the gate, you Amanda, the national reaction to the warriors winning on that blown call on. Kevin durant? The blown call. I mean that was like that was all time. I mean, the nation is already so sick of the warriors. And this believes that the words get every break and their wine and cry and ate the warriors and Durant was out about how could they win? And we'd just be sitting here laughing. We'd be like what sometimes you get the calls eight. Okay, kamiar. And instead as the as many people said and copes are saying during the transition ball, don't lie the basketball. God's knew they knew that Durant was out of bounds. And and they had to reward James harden. But what does he what are you a liberal heart and say to dream on right after that looked like something about a because he FCC allows me this kind of room. I will say I know the word bitch was involved. Around. What was around that word is anybody among the many things we can talk about on that hard and shot is that he was double first of all he was fouled that could have been a four pointer and second of all the two dudes closing out on him were the two best defenders the warriors..
