"So, you know, I would always would tell my dad, you don't understand every guy wants to be you. Everything that you do is, you know, you're fascinating and people want to know more. So I think he was he was hesitant about, you know, just in his humility. But I think he truly is an inspirational story. For sure, and it was actually fascinating. I alluded to the audio tapes. That was the first thing that struck me was hearing his voice-over with some black and white photos of his family for when he was small and talking about their very, very poor his very poor beginnings and that struggle. And that's something that I think I knew from his overall bio read somewhere along the way, but I don't know that we ever heard him talk about it. At least in the years that I've been covering the league, and so that's a piece of it. I feel like I'm curious, is that part of the motivation here, like the full story of your dad's ascent and revolutionizing the NBA in a lot of ways, it's been told in pieces, but I guess this is your opportunity both as Lakers owner and as Jerry buss daughter to make sure that this is told and preserved so that people understand the full scope of this. Yeah, you know, he, you know, I think something that is very poignant about his story is that his father and mother divorced when he was just a baby. And eventually his mother remarried, but his stepfather would not adopt him. And then his mother and stepfather went on to have two more kids. So he was a bus in a family of browns. Like really never fit in, never felt loved, included, I guess, is the word. And so. Because of what he went through, the value that he put on making the Lakers and making the experience of Lakers inclusive. He wanted everybody to be a Lakers fan. That was really important to him. And that's about, that's the family that he created, that he didn't have growing up. Like we're all equal, we're all Laker fans. And, you know, that, you know, that's a value that he instilled in me. And I like to think that I'm following in his footsteps when I say that, that the Laker Laker nation is a powerful thing and we want everybody to be a Lakers fan. It's funny you said in that wage, you need your frame it that way. It actually reminds me of the conversation I just had with Adam silver a couple weeks ago about Bill Russell and his relationship with Bill Russell and that Bill Russell would talk about the three legged stool, which is that the

"I'm not judging him, but Jimmy, I really liked it. Yeah, me too. Really, really liked John C Reilly as Jerry buss. I'm sorry if that makes me a bad person, but I liked it. I like mad dog Russo, okay? I like it. So I had a really good time working with him, but he was out on Friday. He was not doing the show. I don't know where he was, but you know, people were on vacation. You know? And so the set was made up of with all due respect to my coworker because it was fill ins. And so when it came to the NBA, I had the floor in that show. And you used it. I turned into a podcast. This is what I did. This is what I did. Now, when you, when you spoke about the jazz in that two minute clip, did you know Rudy Gobert was going to be traded or was on the block where there was a possibility that that was going to happen? I knew he was likely to be traded. You know, you always got to be careful with this verbiage. Right. I was pretty sure he had almost been traded the night before. So, you know, you're never in, you know, that's the thing with covering the NBA. You're never in the room where it happens. Typically, so you're never 100% sure. But that was pretty sure go baron's about to get traded. And so, yeah. You go ahead, good. And there was just, you know, this, you know, the Durant stuff had been covered like intently for 20 hours. And this was something that was very interesting that was a curve ball. You're not always going to be able to generate that kind of storyline. It was sort of a perfect little moment. But I had talked about it on my podcast, the night before, and it was effectively the dry run. And you know, when you do first take and get up in the morning, the studios are side by side. They're about maybe 50 feet apart across the hallway with a bathroom in between. And I normally have to stop in the bathroom real quick. And like literally, it's like almost like a pit crew. You get up ends. One person comes over to handle your microphone, one person comes over to handle your earpiece. You walk to the next set, holding your microphone cord in one hand and your air force cord in the other. And they. Enjoy you both in and bam, you're on. You know, it's like, you know, less than three minutes between when I'm off first take or what I'm off get up and on first take. I don't do it every day, but I've done it many times. And I communicated with the, with the producers of the show. And as we entered, they knew that I had this jazz stuff. And as we entered that segment,

"And then Jerry buss had to make a decision. And I think near the end too, they had this big blowout meeting that we talk about in the episode, and it was 2000 three season. And Shaw's retired, and he scouting in Oakland. He gets a call from Devin George, says, you better get down here, Shaq's going to kill Colby man. You got to get ladies and gentlemen. Right. We love bisha. But anyway, so what's happened at this point is Phil Jackson was smart. He understood that Shaq was a big guy that took a terrible beating during the course of the season. So he used to tell Shaq, take the summer off. You don't have to I don't even care. You don't have to train, just take the summer off so I can have you healthy for when it matters. Well, here's Kobe in the gym obsessive, right? 16 hours a day or whatever the heck he was doing. And he's like, I don't get that. That isn't right. You're not doing everything you can to help us win. And the truth was, the two of them never hung out together. Never. Outside of the game, they were not buddies. They were not going to clubs together. They were not hanging out together. So I think what happened was, he thought Shaq should have been a better shape, Shaq had some injuries, felt he should have taken care of those during the off season. And Shaq's like, this little kid, he doesn't understand. This is my team. Well, it really wasn't anymore. It was one and one a, or one a and one a. It had gotten to that point. And I think that was difficult for both of them. And then Kobe had all the power. So he finally said, it's me or him. And he had his little flirtation with the Clippers. And Jerry bush, Jerry buss moved, Shaq along, and kept Kobe. So those are two completely to know both of them. They're two completely different people. I mean, be any more different. Could not be any more different. And I think what happens is like, you know, it's time passes with Kobe people for Kobe was a prickly dude. Kobe was a hell of a competitor hell of a player all of that. I wound up being good friends with them, respect the hell out of them. But could be prickly. I have a question for you, Jackie about that. You said when he came in, you know, and all the vets are there, and he wants it now. And we know that's not always how that works, right? And there's that kind of resentment from the older dudes you're going to pay these dues. Did they give you any insight into when it was that that's kind of a collective they say, oh shit. Yeah. It's going to be his. Well, you know what's funny? I think part of the problem was they already knew that Raja. He did that workout for Jerry West, that private workout in englewood high school before he was drafted. And Michael Cooper, who was 40, but still an unbelievable shape, and still a great defensive player. And he's checking that kid, and he's like, oh, shit, I can't stop him, you know? I think the word was already out. You know, I think they all knew he was going to get there. But he wasn't there yet. He took too many shots. He wasn't collaborative. So the talent was always there. It was can he be a good teammate. When's he going to learn how to be a good teammate? And as you know, it took Kobe a long, long time. Just like it took Jordan a really long time. Some would argue Jordan never got there, right? And some would argue probably the same about Kobe. But I thought what was so interesting about this those two guys was if you start at the beginning, you would have said that who's going to be the one that's going to be the mentor down the line to all these young players. I would have put all my money on Shaq because he was so gracious to the older players. He was a great teammate. Everybody loved playing with Shaq. He got along with everybody. And yet, when it was all said and done, when Kobe's career ended, he started the mamba academy, started that academy, started inviting guys like Jamal Murray and Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Really, entering showing him all showing them all his secrets. And then I asked Shaq, it's the dialog, the exchange is in the episode, so Shaq, which young kids have, you know, which young big men have come to you and to help you mentor them. And the answer is none. Zero. That's fascinating. It really is. I wonder, I mean, I'm sorry, but I just wonder out loud as you're saying that. You know, Shaq's had these things with some of these bigs where Kobe didn't really Kobe didn't say anything. About guys that were compared to him really in a negative way. Shaq's always bristled and kind of had that what he did to Dwight in the media kind of. And so I wonder if they don't approach him because that's what kind of he's put out there, you know? Well, he also, as you guys know, is a very highly visible TNT personality that has his own segment that makes fun of people, right? So like if you're turning on the set that you see him like you're like FM, why am I going to go to him? So I think that's all part of it. But I think they're missing out. I think he has a lot to offer, not just how to handle yourself as a basketball player and how to turn left and right and how to operate in the post, but how to market yourself. I mean, think about it. The guy who played I can't remember how long ago Shaq retired, but he's everywhere. Okay, so he's everywhere, just like Charles. Like Charles and Shaq. They've nailed it. And you'd think every young player would be interested in how to market themselves that way..

"jerry buss" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times

"This one play that Magic Johnson did, it's super obscure, right? The nets had a point guard named pearl Washington and magic is driving down the lane one time. He's coming down on parole and pearls was a horrible defensive point guard anyway. He's coming down on pearls planted, and magic does is like, look to the right, unfurls his arm and just somehow whips it left. And I think it was Cooper slashing in and just gets it to Cooper. And pearl Washington is just frozen. And magic is just like, it was almost like he was hovering above everything. It's almost hard to explain, and it was so graceful and beautiful. And that really, when I think of showtime, the first thing I think of is Magic Johnson driving it up pearl Washington and just freezing him. Hearing Jeff talk about like a simple no look pass as if it's this really innovative thing. I grew up in the 90s and 2000s and like everyone was doing no look passes. It's almost like Todd and textbooks now. Like other people had done no look passes before. But Magic Johnson made it really cool. And that's one of the things that just added the flash and pizzazz that Jerry buss was looking for was interesting to me. I want to break down magic's towns, but after the break. BRB. Welcome back to binge sesh. So cream, I actually don't know enough about Magic Johnson to know what made him specifically the generational talent that we see in the show. And this is something that basically everyone we talked to told us about him. So in your mind, what's like the first thing that I need to know about Magic Johnson as a point guard. Magic was like the first of his kind. I mean, the biggest thing is he was a 6 9 point guard, which didn't exist. And there was a lot of concern. There was genuine legitimate understandable concern. How is a 6 9 point guard going to go along in the NBA? You have all these point guards who are 6 feet, 6 one, so you're 6 for 9 point guard. That means you have a higher dribble. How are you going to handle? How are you going to navigate against little tiny archer mods coming up to you and trying to steal the ball? And he was able to make it work, and that was the precursor for every Kevin Durant type player you see today in the beginning was Magic Johnson. He's going to be able to post up guards. We could play them all around. He can kind of reinvent the game. We can use them in different ways, and let's just hope him dribbling against smaller guards will work. I guess that was the biggest concern. But by far the biggest impact, he was the big point guard. I mean, I really do find that to be true. Like the operative word is reinvent and I guess there was a reinvention because I just grew up and the NBA is the way it is. Very similar to the way it is now. Back in the 90s and early 2000s. But all that was because magic helped to reinvent the way the game is played. And Gary buss also sort of reinvented how the game was displayed and packaged and turned into this entertainment product that went beyond just hardcore basketball fans. So I sort of think of Jerry buss and Magic Johnson as this. Marriage made in basketball heaven or this chemical reaction that you can only get between these two particular people at this particular time. And it goes beyond basketball. They had real personal affinity for each other as well. And they shared some of the same interests, let's say. The number one thing they had a common is kind of like, I mean, the number one thing they had in common is they like the women. You know, like the women and also like, it's just, in a lot of ways, sort of Jerry buss kind of hits the fortunes of the franchise. To the actions of Nazi towns, you know, and I don't know if it was a 100% deliberate, it probably wasn't, but he definitely saw magic as sort of, he was a guy who was going to lead this team forward. And the thing is, Jerry buss wasn't like, there just aren't many owners who want to hang out with their players. And Jerry buss like going out with this player. He liked confiding a Magic Johnson. So I mean, I guess the two main things add in common is their love of women in the nightlife and the sort of desire to win and also coming in at the same time. So really felt like there was a partnership. And I don't know, there's just a shared kinship. What drove him to want to be involved in professional sports? What in your view made him want to take that on? Oh, lifestyle. I mean, I think this lifestyle. I mean, Jerry buss was a great owner, but he still had an enormous ego. And so many of these guys see it as a ticket to celebrity and fame. I'm like, it's one thing to be wealthy. It's another thing to be wealthy and famous. Being a sports owner is a very select club, like a very select club. Even the NBA at that point. And I just think he was really enticed by the idea of sort of this level of celebrity and notoriety and fame and pizzazz. Well, I mean, he ends up buying like the classic Hollywood home when pic there. Talk a little bit about the kind of social world that he built around him. In the late 70s and in through the 80s I mean, Jerry bus was getting laid. Often, you know, like, he was kind of the, I mean, in a lot of ways, like you hefner was the model. And Jerry buss was the actuality. And Jerry buss just really, truly did have these books. Filled with the pictures of the young women he was dating or had dated, and there is a book after book after book, and they would be women who were ten, 15, 20, 25, 30 years younger than he was, and he just really ate it up. He loved the spotlight. He loved the forum club, which became really his sort of castle. He loved escorting women on his oftentimes on both arms. They're always younger. He just ate it up, you know? He just ate it up. You couldn't be that today. There's no chance you could not be Jerry West today. No way. It just won't work. I just paid for her sophomore year of college. Great gal. You want to meet him? These ain't one of the way girls. Now the ladies love magic. But those are stars. Let me let you in on a little secret urban. So, are you? Far out. I love that scene because it perfectly sums up how showtime made these athletes stars. I grew up in New York in a small town called Mayo pack New York. And back then, it wasn't like you could watch any game at any time on TV. You'll get slack games. And the Lakers in the Celtics were the sort of big games that you would see every now and then and Bret muss, or broadcasting the games, it would be a big deal. And when the Lakers run, especially the Lakers, they would do these shots of the form you'd come in and be a wide shot of the forum. When you see the palm trees and they're always sunny outside and then they would show the Laker girls and they'd show a different celebrities. And then you'd see like magic and you'd see Kareem and coop and these different guys and Pat Riley with the grease back hair. And it just, it felt really Southern California to me. And like really Hollywood and it was, it was magical to me. And there was this team 3000 miles away that played in this glorious land with these.

"Have we seen play at this level at that age in the NBA? No, but in obviously we've never seen anybody. Not weed the league in scoring like LeBron. Yeah, so that's definitely not to discount anything Tom Brady's doing. But first of all, LeBron and Tom Brady are both they're the anomalies. They are the exception. They're the exception to every rule that you can think of and they're both freaks of nature, they're both look, they might not even be human. You know what I mean? When it comes out to Tom Brady in both LeBron both came from the Men in Black planet. I'd be like, cool. That tracks. That tracks. All right, real quick. Let's end on this, guys. Let's talk winning time. I can't get enough of it. So good. I don't know about you. What you do, but me and Chris talked about this the other day. Like Chris and I watched each episode like minimum twice, if not three times a week. I watch it back to back. I watch it all week. It's on all the time and I'll just, I'll cruise in and out. And if I catch it, I'll watch the rest of it, wherever I'm at. It's so good. Like madam on Sunday, I watched it, right? And then I was going to go into the kitchen to grab something, so I hit rewind on the TV. I grabbed it out the kitchen that got back wherever it stopped. I just hit play. I watched the last 25 minutes of it over again. And then like two hours later, I watched the full episode through again. So two and a half times I watched this. I actually think the third episode, I actually think this was my favorite one. I agree. It was my favorite also. Yeah, okay, go ahead, because what did you I'll tell you what I liked, but what did you like about it? Because I loved it. Well, first of all, I mean, you have the introduction of Pat Riley. Absolutely. Floppy hair mustache pat, right? Adrian Brody. That's awesome. Confused Pat Riley, not knowing what's going to happen next. And in context, it's interesting to look back because we know what's going to happen in his career, but at that time he was so uncertain about his life and what he was going to do. And it was so unkempt. Yeah, you didn't see the Armani suit or the slick back here. That came with the evolution of Pat Riley in the 80s. There you just saw kind of a guy who was in his garage with his wife giving him encouragement to keep going another day. And so it was interesting to see, first of all, with him essentially begging Chick Hearn for that for that tryout for the commentator guy. And then I can't really say the word, but he would say he has a voice that wouldn't really work for television. I don't know if we could say this. No, we're not saying that. Came out of that. But you'll see you understand if you watch episode three, so it's interesting to see the backstory of Pat Riley. And then of course, the whole Jerry tarkanian situation is blew me away. I was so amazed by Jerry tarkanian. And what happens is a lot of times if I watch a movie or a TV show and there's an actor that I know playing the role, depending on how good they are, I get in the back of my mind, I'm always like, that's sad I'm chugging though. That's how I'm chugging. I didn't know who played tart the entire episode. It's over. And then I realized it was a guy Rory Cochran, who's played one of my favorite characters of all time and one of my favorite movies. He was slater in dazed and confused if you've ever seen dazed and confused. He was a long, they were all like hippies, but heard stoner, and that was Rory cocker. Yes, and he was breaking news to Adam. Oh my God. And I'm glad I didn't know that before I watched it 'cause I would have just kept thinking this is slater. He did such an incredible job with the mannerisms, the way he taught, he was Turk was great. He was great as Jerry tarkin. It was amazing. He was great. And I think two things. So the tar stuff we'll get to in a second, but going back to pat rally for a second. Like you said, knowing we know the result, okay? And then going back and kind of seeing the origin and the confusion, I thought that was just so cool and Adrian Brody was so good at playing it and Gillian Jacobs, who's been on the big show, our show, we've known her for a long time. She's playing pat's wife, is like a therapist. He walks in, kind of interrupting a session. And she's like, get to have out of here. Like, what are you doing? When that happened, right? Did you guys immediately think that they had been divorced? He had no business being in the house. They're on the rocks. That was the case whatsoever. She's still married to his wife to this day. Same woman. I think it was just a case of a wife telling her husband, okay, you need to get out of the house. Go find something. Figure out something to do. I'm trying to do my life, too. And then the whole auditioning, the audition tapes to try to him in the garage, just kind of like doing the voiceovers and the hacky really bad one liners and stuff was just so great. And then I'm destroying his garage. And just knowing what we know in the real life timeline. So like Pat Riley actually was doing the color with Chick Hearn in 1977, so we know this show takes place in 79 and obviously for drama and for the television purposes. They kind of have to condense timelines. So it's just kind of funny to like how they're kind of accelerating pad of like, oh, I don't know what I'm going to do. Before the 79 season, maybe I'll do a little color. We know that he eventually becomes an assistant coach. And we know that he will eventually in a couple of years become the head coach. And it's just like, I love the introduction of pat. I like that he's there, the torque stuff was so amazing to go back and kind of find out what was real and what isn't, like, his guy Vic really did get murdered in real life. Yeah, I remember that story. And then the shocking ending to that episode where he's in the trunk with Jerry buss business card. In real life, it wasn't a business card, but it was a stack of cash from a meeting allegedly with Jerry bus because that was the last time he was ever seen alive was with Jerry buss and Jack can cook who is still kind of do it helping out with the team aspect back then in real life. Can you imagine that type of scandal if that happens today? It would be madness. All over Twitter trending, Jerry buss would be investigated. Tarkanian would be investigated. It would be a whole thing, but back then, I guess..

"Like, what are we doing here? Like, is it everybody's job to give a full biographical accounting of every single fucking subject? That's not how this shit works. And if you think that's how it should, you're a fucking idiot. I'm sorry. That's not what we do. We don't talk about like when people write a book about Richard Nixon. And they concentrate on what he did as a president. And somebody says, well, back in the days, he did bubba bun. This was not a full thing of Richard Nixon. This is like, that's not how you get treated as prominent figures in society. You're not some person being plucked from obscurity, you know, working in a fucking factory and people are just killing you in some artistic depiction. So my big book. Justin, you can take me down. This one, if I'm worthy, if you could sell a fucking book based on my life and you put the work in writing it for me, take my ass down. These are the most exalted people in our fucking society. I'm supposed to cry for Jerry West, depiction on a fucking TV show. That's ridiculous. I will say, if you want the truth, like read the book. Read a read book that any book. And to the extent that the fictionalizations that are happening in this show to me are small potatoes compared to, let's say some of the liberties taken in like the last dance, for example, when you present something as documentary as this is fact, this is like, this is on the ground accounting of what happened versus, again, John C Reilly talking into the camera as he comes out of the Playboy mansion. You probably shouldn't take that stuff a 100% at face value. That is a viewer issue, not a text issue. Yeah, just to be clear, I probably would take more umbrage to Jerry buss being the white knight than I do with Jerry West portrayal. But speaking of books, if you do read Jerry West's book, it does get pretty dark in there. So maybe put that at the top of the list. All right, maybe we'll check back on the show later on. This is technically within our purview. Yeah. Of course it is. We have a podcast. We can talk about stuff. All right. That's it for us this week. We'll be back next week. Same time same place. Thank you to Isaiah blakely on production. We will see you then..

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Tonight, episode two of the new HBO HBO Max TV show series, I guess you'd say, called winning time about the 1980s LA Lakers. It's done by Adam McKay, the guy who worked with Will Ferrell for many years on funny or die and was over this particular project, they had a falling out. But what's interesting to me is not the story of the Lakers. I mean, I know the real story, but what's more fascinating to me are the people playing the parts. Some famous actors with some interesting roles, people you would normally expect to be one thing and then turning up to be another. And I don't want to spoil it for you who's already shown up and who's going to show up in the future. But it's one of those series that even if you're not a big sports fan, you'll be interested in going, I think that's so and so. John C Reilly plays doctor Jerry buss, the man who owned the Lakers. And he wasn't the first choice, in fact he wasn't even really the second or third choice I don't think, but he does a great job of playing it. It's very fascinating, and again, even if you're not a sports fan, it's very entertaining. At least the first episode was, I can't wait for episode two tonight of winning time.

But it's one of those series that even if you're not a big sports fan, you'll be interested in going, I think that's so and so. John C Reilly plays doctor Jerry buss, the man who owned the Lakers. And he wasn't the first choice, in fact he wasn't even really the second or third choice I don't think, but he does a great job of playing it. It's very fascinating, and again, even if you're not a sports fan, it's very entertaining. At least the first episode was, I can't wait for episode two tonight of winning time.

"Almost a billionaire businessman and showed even from that young of an age he understood what he was worth and what he deserved. And that was another fascinating thing I think that was interesting showing that magic was from a blue collar, Lansing. Yeah, he's a blue collar guy. It showed him on the garbage truck with his dad, where he got his hard work from from his dad. His dad was a hard worker. So I think that was cool also I would kind of showed his roots. Yeah, and you talk about magic subbi that you had read that came out in the early 90s after the HIV announcement. I read that thing a couple of times when I was a kid growing up because it was just so fascinating. And he was this just blue collar kid from a blue collar family, hardworking, Michigan, cold winters. We all remember those days. We grew up in those types of neighborhoods, and those types of states. And magic, like you said, he knew what he could do. He hadn't done it yet, but he believed in himself. And I think they said he settled for 500,000 and Larry Bird was at 600,000. I believe so, yeah. It's great. What are you guys looking forward to as a show really gets in deep here? Episode two. But I'm looking forward to is them showing how showtime was really created and by showtime I mean the fan experience because Jerry buss was the first guy to make the NBA a really entertaining game to watch if you're a fan in between quarters in between halves. You know what I mean? Like before he was around, there wasn't that much entertainment. He made it a show. He made it cool for celebrities to go to the games like Jack Nicholson. He gave them free courtside seats. So I'm interested to seeing all that. And of course, the sex and drugs. I mean, let's be real. That's a big part of what we're looking forward to. Yeah, TJ same. I can't wait to see the guy who plays Jack over there. You know, he could be very subtle in this approach, you know. Yeah, I'm looking to see the career magic dynamic and how that's going to come into play because Kareem is already been shown as being very surly. Whether it's a kid from the airplane, what was the kid's name, little Jimmy or Robbie or whatever, and whatever that kid's name was, but then norm Nixon, wasn't it norm coming into his trailer, what he talked to captain headphones on. Yeah, and he goes and norms like, so you're going to tell me to bleep off and Kareem's like, yeah, pretty much. That's a vibe, bro so it's going to be interesting to see how that Kareem magic relationship blossomed. If it does blossom, I don't really know how was their relationship back then. Looking forward to piecing that out. I don't know how much basketball we're going to get. I think I was reading something yesterday. They don't play an actual game until episode 5. And you know, in movies like this, I'm okay with that, right? Because it would be so impossible to really recreate basketball. So just if I want to see what happened in the game, I can go on YouTube. Show me what happened leading up to the game. And of course you're going to get little snippets, and that's fine, but I think off the court is really where the story is. And the basketball stuff is the actual encore stuff. You can kind of skim through a little bit. And Jerry buster, you're right, Adam was so smooth. The trick when magic tells him after the party scene at Donald Sterling's white party where norm Mixon and him .1 on one, which I believe is made up, I don't think that really happened in real life. But magic says he's going back to going back to school, going to return to Michigan state. And Jerry bus is like, well, let's take a walk to the stadium. I'll walk you out and kind of conveniently gets lost, and then magic ends up in the locker room, and then on the court, and he ends up in a hallway with the pictures and then Moses into the locker room. Jerry bus knew what he was doing. Yeah, and then oh wait a minute, here's my name and my Jersey hanging up. Come on. It's genius. I mean, we're all signing at that point. I mean, eastlake, Michigan state's cool. But I'll stay here in Los Angeles. It also showed the brilliance of Jerry buss in that scene where they're eating lunch with Jack Ken cook and they brought out the sand dabs. They brought up the stand ups. And you could tell, Magic Johnson's like, sand dad, what is this? That's true. That really happened kind of word for word. Yeah, it did happen. And so it was cool to see Jerry buss realized that they were not digging the sand out. So he's like, let's just get some cheeseburgers. Like, relax. You want cheeseburger, yeah. Let's get some cheese. Because even in 19 year old kid here, man, you didn't give him a stand dab before. Get this through the hamburger. I gotta say, I have no idea what a sand dab is. I know it's fish. Unclear what to me with that. I'm allergic to fish, so. There you go. There you go. All right, that's a winning time. We talked a little bit too much about that, but did we? Great show. I'll do 20 minutes every single week. We can do a recap every week..

"And along with some writers from the athletic, you put on your TV critic hat and reviewed the series so far. No spoilers, but what were your impressions of the first episode? So I have only seen the first episode and I know I have colleagues who've seen like the first 8 because HBO shared screeners. And I have not. So I'm watching it at home in my living room with popcorn with the rest of America. And it is entertaining. I mean, it is highly entertaining to watch this era of Lakers basketball that I was not around for come to life in a very vibrant, very entertaining way. No breakfast this morning. Not today. I'm going to buy the Lakers. Ah, no kidding. Tell them to win a championship one of these days. I'll do what I can, Fred. You got it, brother. Welcome to sunny Los Angeles. Great pretends. Shit for fans. You know, I know there's some trepidation around the Lakers organization about being portrayed in this way. Which I suppose there's a certain irony to when you are an organization that has so openly courted Hollywood and identified with Hollywood for so long to suddenly be uncomfortable when it's your turn to be portrayed by Hollywood. But to me, it's only good for the Lakers because it brings to life something that a significant portion of their fan base wasn't alive for doesn't remember. So obviously it's a dramatization and not everything is going to be true to exactly how it happened or not every portrayal is going to ring true to the people who were there. But as entertainment, it really worked for me. I enjoyed it. Well, the show has John C Reilly playing the late doctor Jerry buss, who I think he does an amazing job. And you're left with $15.75 million. Due in cash in 30 days..

"And i think the idea that he's doing his own. Free agent calls is kind of craz- that is certainly a take. I would agree for sure. I did like the details of his compound. Brentwood with mahogany. Was the mahogany cigar. Yeah i think a lot of people. Were expecting it to make an appearance on monday night. Football when he scripted with peyton and eli but unfortunately did not. I forgot that you are now just like an nfl correspondent. Yeah exactly yeah so to me. The i don't even know if this is like a takeaway but just kind of a big theme. Maybe that's also not the right where it just what i felt when i was reading. The story is just like the lakers. Constant search for relevance even at the cost of being competitive is so funny to me like so long as jeannie buses the owner. They will prioritize name over substance they are willing to sacrifice continuity. They're willing to sacrifice chemistry for the sake of of relevance and attention that in reality they do not need because they are the lakers so that was a big acoustic height. Exactly or alex caruso but like this was the one reason that they they backtracked on the kings and struck a deal for westbrook instead of buddy healed. Because i'm gonna quote a line from the story While she meaning genius has long since empowered rob pelinka to be the final front office decision maker. the impact of her family's legacy remains strong and the westbrook deal quite clearly was seen as the kind of move that would make her late. Father legendary lakers owner. Dr jerry buss smile so any of that statement bothers lakers fans. But if i were a lakers fan it would bother me. Like if if dr jerry buss could have seen the three point revolution take place. Maybe he starts smiling at other. Things is just like what. I just throwing that out there. But that mindset just stretches elsewhere beyond the westbrook transaction it. The article touches on their decision to bring in andre drummond and from where i sat when that happened to after reading the article today like he was brought in because he was a big name even though there was a risk of pissing off that move pissing off my trump and move was a disaster because they were playing really well with ghazal and then the alienate him. Even though if if you're going to play a center next to a he's the guy you on right exactly so you you you disrupt the team's chemistry in a very predictable way. you Disrespect a borderline hall of famer in the process and basically like his he just was never gonna come back. Which was reported in. That article was so upset. Another tidbit in there was that frank vogel only got a one year contract extension which is obviously insulting as the frank vogel has to do to get to. Nah he only one title in your one. Even though there was the bubble they had to deal with obviously the death of kobe. Bryant that you're started with them being stuck in china last year he has them with the number one defense in the league even though all their players are hurt. I don't know what they're thinking with. Frank vogel i guess he's aligned with lebron is how it's sold in the story contract wise but.

"Not to you say okay. Yeah great. All right great input and then go do what they wanna do. And it's not what you want so then you would say they don't listen to me. I'm pissed i wasted my time. They still cut guy. They still didn't sign the guy i was talking about. Do you know what i mean or do you not want to be so caught up and all that i i just i think there's certain times situations and i think charlie casualty chris who we used to be on the show. Whatever charlie always talked about the gm he never asked it for another players permission. But if you say what do you think of this guy. Do you know him. You know what i mean. Have you heard about him from other players in the league. I think that's something that's valuable but once you get into that if you're a player or you now mad that they're not listening to you if you're a little bit and you say i want jason kidd to be the next coach and they hire chauncey billups mad chris or not. I think you make a valid point and first of all used the writer. You said double edged sword and it is a double edged sword. Let let's just say you get really involved. And they're running. Virtually everything by coach. Who's gonna be the next coast not necessarily doing everything you want. But you're you are like it's more than aaron jordy nelson. We feel like he's lost a step with thinking about releasing him. What do you see out there. You know that i think that's valid aaron understanding. Look i can get my opinion. They they may not do what i want. But there are certain situations where it would be natural to go to the quarterback. We're looking at this free agent receiver. You like him. You think he'd fit in our scheme stuff like that or even this cornerback. Is he any good. You throw against him. What do you think about this guy scare you. You know things like that but if you go beyond that rob. Here's the thing that no very few people have mentioned if anybody can also put you at odds with your teammates. If your teammates know that you are in bed with the front office and having a major say in the moves and a teammate doesn't get the money he wanted or done get the offer he wanted or gets you know whatever that could put you at odds with your teammates.

"I later after this happened in the story started to leak out people would say to kobe. How close did you come to joining the clippers. And he would always say. I seriously considered it. But that's as far as he would go. Yeah but i remember the first time. The lakers played the clippers. That and the lakers and coby walked over to donald sterling and shook hands with them and i think thanked him for just say. Thank you for making me that offer. I think the lakers are home. And it was dr who convinced him of that and i think less lesser owner doesn't interrupt his vacation doesn't necessarily get on the phone and doesn't have the life experience that dr bus had to talk koby indistinct and i've always thought that that was one of michael calls. Jerry buss the greatest donor in the history of team sports and one of the reasons that you talk to people when you hear them talk to about dr buster was up. There was an old friend of the bus family that passed away today. A great sports innovator in a guy who he dennis started the aba. he was in his nineties. He had lived as grateful life. But we lost from this morning and and dennis was among the people that said this that jerry buss head so much life experience that he was comfortable in any room he be comfortable playing poker with a bunch of security geyser janitors or he could be comfortable dining with the heads of fortune five hundred companies and he had a life experience in a way of explaining things that made. It seem simple remain. I know you interviewed him. I was lucky enough to have several conversations with him but he just had this ability. Whatever room he was in to adjust to the crowd. And i think he convinced kobe that the lakers were the brand that he wanted to tie his legacy to and the minute that that broke would break up. Kobe was just another player but when he was the face of the lakers with his talent and with his greatness he could legendary. And if you look at devon booker sneakers in the finals. That's kobe told booker. Yeah don't just be a good player. Be legendary booker before finals. Game right on your shoes be legendary because he wants to remember the vice. Kobe game and i'm telling you folks seventeen years ago today. Dr bus saved kobe from going to the clippers morona. You knew kobe pretty well to heat. Once he made up his mind. It was really tough to talk him out of anything. Yeah you're right. And he really and i remember doing a story. I was like a young reporter at the daily news. And i remember howard beck was our beat writer at the time really really good and he taught me a lot of things and he goes well known. I'm really sorry you have a really tough assignment. K with the all star game. He was taking the first media. Day off he goes. I'm about to write a story and it's going to totally make your day tomorrow. Suck right. i'm to write that. Kobe plans to opt out of his contract. And you're gonna have to go ask him and everybody else about it and nobody believed that. Kobe would really do that. And that he would be a free agent but he really dissatisfied with where the laker organization was going. Remember that he was like. Are they going to choose me or shock he wanted. He wanted everybody to work as hard as he did. And it was just never going to happen. Yeah he he wanted to cut of his own team you know. He kind of became enamored with everything. That's going on. And i think you know with the clippers right. They had a really good young team at the time. Corey getty was on those teams. Elton brand those cotin a very good meeting that had koby genuinely interested and i remember when he decided to stay. It was kind of like a c- told you with me but it was really touching. Go there for a while. And i will say this like so much. A why co we became who he is alleged. Legendary status is because he's kobe k. But another part of it is that he played twenty years for one franchise and in this day and age. That's a really big thing and i know. He saw michael in the wizards years in like that. He's really cognizant of what His legacy was. So it's kind of like marriage. John like my mom told me this one. I thought it was really good advice. Okay she goes. I have a lot friends who got divorced in their forties or whatever you know they they lose the thrill of the mayor the honeymoon's over right and they get bored. You know some has its fighting to get divorced and all that but but a lot of times they just kind of like if you stick it out and you kinda like told together in that marriage like there's something really nice about spending your whole life with someone. There's something really wonderful about a lifelong relationship. That actually stuff that you worked through all the board times that weird times of ad. Time trait of. Why kobe's with lakers so good like it's it's really. He had some really bad times. they're really i think one of the things. Dr bus probably told him his look at the people who have had the title face of the franchise. Yeah they're all immortal right. It's kareem abdul-jabbar. it's magic johnson. It's jerry west shaquille o'neal and now it can be you. it can be kobe bryant. And there's a very short list of people who've had that on their resume face of the lakers.

"Jerry Buss on Dr Phil Knight here and its food First Michigan. Jerry, this report, I think has a lot of potential. Let me let me re say that. I think this food Security Council And the reports that come out of it have a real opportunity to influence this issue for years to come, because this is the initial report we're talking about today. But we've been tasked to look at food insecurity outside the pandemic under blue skies as well and to create the same type of plan that's That's actionable. And I think there's so much room for improvement there that again. I don't really see. Ah, lot of Territory being threatened here when we talk about who wins when we can create food security across the state? Sure, of course we all win, and and we know that because we all win. Drawing attention to how we win is going to help us make the case for why we should have things like food is medicine, right? We should have things like the ability for people who are food insecure and particularly if they're taking prescription medicine that requires food to be taken with it. That they get food as far as part of their prescription, right? I mean, that should just happen now. Of course it's nothing just happens, right? But these these types of efforts that draw attention to the issue and the health disparities and the other things that you've just mentioned. They are the things that help us make that case for why state and federal funds that are being spent on health care are being overspend because we're not addressing food insecurity as part of people's health care planning, so I know you know it's all of these things connect, and that's why the commission is made up of people from places like Blue Cross Blue Shield. Who know these things are true and who can help make the case in the long run for what kinds of policies and practices we need to have to have a food secure state. Well that you're talking a lot about healthy outcomes. Let me throw education outcomes. There. Something we've had on this show is an emphasis for years now that if they're not well fed, they won't be well read and third grade reading level by third grade is the law in Michigan, but it's also the best indicator for who's going to graduate. Yep. So, which in turn effects the workforce So you know if we want a better greater were robust workforce. Let's make sure that everybody has the tools they need in order to be able to read at third grade reading level. So is it will make sense to me. It's logical, right? But, you know, I understand. Like you said, things take time. I mean, it took us about 100 years to put wheels on it on a suitcase. So we're gonna do better than that, doctor. We are gonna do better. Well, Joe, Here's the governor at a press conference talking about why this, um, issue of food security. It's so important to her covered 19 has negatively affected food security for so many Michiganders. We have taken many actions during the last 10 months. Make sure Michiganders have access to healthy food. No family should have to worry about how they're going to put food on the table, especially during a public health worldwide pandemic. The Food Bank Council of Michigan and the Food Security Council believed food security is one of the issues that can unite us. Hunger isn't partisan. It isn't even bipartisan. It's nonpartisan. We know this because we can all agree that two words that should never go together. Our child and hunger. So, Jerry, that was that was the highlight. Yep, no doubt about it. It was a high moment. Great to see you there with the governor. Doctor makes us all proud. Makes us proud of you proud of the work. And.

"Michigan Once again, here's Dylan. Jerry. Welcome back, everybody. Jerry Buss on Dr Phil Knight here with our guest, representative Angela Whitworth from Michigan, 71st. We talked quite a bit about food Insecurity and food Security Council and some personal things here from all all three of us here and so it's great to have you back with US representative But I want to talk just a moment about the moment if we could, um, because I know from our conversations. Um There's been some difficulty in serving. As the representative from Michigan, 71st are serving in political life at all. So I just want to highlight for a minute that there's a price to be paid here in order to stand in the gap for the causes, and for the people that you care about so deeply I know, I know. There's been phone calls, and there's been text and there's been communications about you and your service and your life. And certainly that plays into the moment that we're in now where Really threats to public officials are Vogue and if and not as it's more acceptable now than it's ever been, even though it is unacceptable. It's a really difficult time in our country right now, and I've been always an eternal Lever in our country, and I've never been an uber political person. So I always believe that you know, we have people that are in charge. We'll have a Republican governor, Republican President, Democrat Governor Democrat president just said this to someone just the other day who and I said, You know, always, you know, someday some Weir's my company. I'll do a couple dollars better than other years. But it all evens out. And you know, we have a really unique country. We've all been able to come together. Um, you know, moments of despair, but we come together and I've done OK over the years of working really hard. And and right now we're in a really emotional time, where both Sides of this coin feel like they are patriots and they feel like they both. Both sides love their country and both sides want the best for the people in the country, and we've kind of lost focus almost for a minute and I just can't I, for some reason cannot see the hate and I Maybe that's why I want to see because I know that we'll have peaceful power changes in this country and It's a scary time I hear from my friends on both sides of the aisle, You know? Do you have to have cameras on your house Do you have are you being taken care of? I've had death threats. I've had threats to my to the people that work in our office. Our district office. I've had to request to have parking changed because they're afraid to walk into work, and it's You know everyone who ever worked. It's been about making sure you have the tools to do your job. Make sure you have You feel, you know, safe at your job, and there's laws to protect people, so they feel safe at their job. But yet right now, if you work in public service in any kind of political arena, it's not too safe right now and Where where they're They're amping up security. There's been ah lot more visible security that I've never seen on D. I feel actually very safe. Very, very safe at work. So I'm I was raised by a detective. So Dr Phil, I have ah, much like your son. My my dad made sure we way we're very well aware of our surroundings. So I've been that way my whole life and I'm very, very aware of who's in front of me and who's got my back. And but in in our district, you know people are pretty supportive of me because I have stuck to the work of what's right, not political, and I just think people are sick of the political games and they question things that are going on. And that's never been my M. Oh, I've always been, um what is the right thing? That's the first thing I think of The first thing I do is I checked with the people in my district. How do you want me to vote? I don't own this vote. This vote isn't about Angela. This vote is about you. How do you want me to vote? And then is it the right thing for the people of Michigan and then I move forward, and it's not always popular on either side of the aisle but is popular in our district and is popular for the people. And I think I think that, um Maybe we need a pause, like in, take a deep breath and realize that we're all people in America and we all want the same thing. The good the right things way all powerful votes cast your vote. If you don't like the person that's there, and that's the way that we should handle these things. I'm not untangle person. I'm not a I'm not a violent person, so this violence is really disturbing to me. It's very disturbing to me, and I think it's not welcome in my life. Violence is not welcome in my life. So I don't understand it and I always go back to. We are the United States of America United and we need to unite and be there for each other, And that's how I've always lived my life. It's not an easy job. The governor doesn't have an easy job. The president doesn't have an easy job right now. Nobody could have ever guessed that we would be where we are right now with Cove. It, um you know, And then when we're entering the 101st, and we have a speaker of the house, who again have to say is an honorable man..

The NBA Finals are hours away, so why are we still talking about the Lakers?

"Now's witching gears to the Lakers. Just there's so much there. Michael. I mean I'm wondering and you're buried in it. What about this situation, especially the last month or so surprises you the most? I think what surprises me the most is the NBA finals are starting in, you know, a little over twenty four hours, thirty six hours and we're still talking about the Lakers and all the drama and dysfunction going on within their organization in in one week from June. I think that's the biggest surprise for me. I'm not surprised by the reports coming out, you and I have discussed this at nauseam before, and what sources have said and what was going on? And I think Magic Johnson going on. I take last week just reinforce that Baxter home story on ESPN as well. I wrote a story that happened to coincide with Baxter's publishing today comparing the Lakers two game. Come on, just all this family, and sibling, fracturing and backstabbing, it's not just been going on this year. But since Dr Jerry Buss died in two thousand thirteen and you know, I, I made the comparison that Magic Johnson played the role. Role of the tar, Gary and torching Lakers landing, you know, not to play spoiler for anybody who hasn't seen it. But that's what he did by going on. I take you know, he, he aired all the dirty laundry. And, and that's that's the most interesting part. I think even today it's going on after this article magic coming out saying, if he has to do it all over again. He would've fired everyone in brought in his own people, including and rob. So it's just never ending story. I don't have one point two million followers out there like brawny, but I definitely think people should be paying attention to what just this dysfunction going on within, the, the Lakers organization. Do you believe the part about Rich Paul going to the Commissioner of the NBA to complain about? Luke Walton as the head coach of the Lakers. Not necessarily the way it was phrased. But he did I read the article, and it did sound like he saw the Commissioner at a restaurant. And so maybe it's possible in this long conversation that went on a bunch of different topics. They asked about Luke Walton and what he thought maybe he gave his two cents. I don't think he approached the Commissioner saying, you know, we should have his job or anything, but look we heard from sources throughout the season, especially early on. Right. Lebron LeBron didn't like Luke Walton didn't want him as the coach. And those we all knew that was coming from his camp, which essentially is Rich Paul Rich Paul was at every game. He was sitting courtside. He had his c-. We I got to speak to him a lot many people did. So we thought that's where it was coming from. So the fact that he didn't want Luke Walton as his coach and wanted Tyron Lewis. The article said that didn't surprise me at all the manner in which he may have gone about it without him silver that, that kind of did, surprise me. But I wouldn't be surprised if it had been mentioned in the
