"He was still here from the right. It could have been great. What's crazy about him man is I used to open up from and see ya. And he would have like, he would do four hours of jokes. Literally four hours of material. Yeah. And kill for four hours. I mean, fucking crushed. And then, but he probably, let's say he's stole. He's still like an hour of that. Let's say allegedly, he didn't need to steal the other three fucking hours. Like he could have just done three hours of his material and walked away. I don't know why he had the need to take a right, Greg. Well, you know, I don't think he stole as much as everybody seems to think he stole. I mean, and that's the thing he does do hours and hours and hours of material. So it's like, you didn't steal all of it. So, I mean, you know, I personally think that he got, he got much more of a bum rap than he deserved in terms of all that because again, the big joke that everyone goes back to is a joke that really anybody could have written. And the worst part about that joke is that it wasn't in line with his style at all. He's not the short form Joe Bryant. It was the Cosby, though. If you look at Cosby, he literally did a Cosby bit. That was like an 8 minute bit. And it was like verbatim. It involved drugging and raping women. That was a 42 year bit. It was like a beat by beat by beat. Did he really? That one I'm not aware. If I really was just aware of the whole, you know, who's going to build that wall joke? No, no, but you were like, dude, you took from Cosby. And it was like a bit. That was the one where you were like, all right, and that's the only thing my only knock on him is that, yeah, when he does perform, it's for hours. And it's just like, dude, can you just do like 30 minutes and get off? I used to have to sell t-shirts for him at the end, right? His shirts. And after four hours, the show was sort of ten. It would be 2 o'clock in the morning, and then he made me make me read the jokes from the T-shirt. So I would bomb on his T-shirt joke. It was a long ass joke. It was like, if you're coming here from America, it was like a three minute thing I'm reading. I'm like, dude, come on. How big is that T-shirt? Yeah. It comes on two tablets. All right, so did you guys watch the fights on Saturday? Yes. Nope. Don? Hell, nope. Listen, this week. I'll give you guys a little update. So Marlon Vera beat Rob Font. Great fight. Great fight. They fight from Harlan Vera when poor Rob Font still icing his face somewhere..

"Of had this flaky personality. It was kind of a nardo, the kind of guy who'd missed the team bus to practice and things like that. So and then once his career ends, he's bitter about what happened. You know, I didn't get the shot. I should have gotten and Kobe hears this over time. And Kobe looks at his dad and says, I'm not going to be him. I'm not going to let what happened to my dad happened to me. I'm going to redeem the Bryant name when it comes to basketball. So you've got these two forces, right? You've got motivation from talent coming from the dad's side of things. And of course, the experience that comes with having been an NBA player. And you've got the mentality from Pam brine from the mom. And you put those together and I think that's where you get this melding and Kobe of the two. He had it within him, but then he has the environment and the upbringing that it kind of harnesses that desire in the way to make him the greatest player on the planet for a while. I mean, certainly in his work ethic, his dedication, his self discipline when it came to basketball, it seems to me that those are things that he or it's the course correction from Joe Bryant. There is a little bit of a, as you mentioned, dad was kind of flaky. Joe Bryant and his career probably maybe he was the wrong player at the wrong time and he would have been phenomenal in today's NBA as a 6 9 guy who could do it all out on the perimeter. But it seems to me that somewhere in there, Kobe finds a kind of he's got this north star and it drives him and focuses him in a way that maybe his father didn't have. It does go to the extreme. There's another passage again. Like some of these just strike me as, you know, if you want to look at them as, you know, here's a kid who just knew exactly what he wanted and how to get it. It's admirable, but it makes me sad to read some of these passages. Who was Kobe Bryant? I'm quoting your writing here. Who was Kobe Bryant during the spring and summer of 1994? He was a kid who had no free time because he wanted no free time. A kid who played in at least 6 basketball leagues in at least two basketball camps and traveled the east coast for AAU tournaments and it goes on to a few other details because there's more and more and then it finally ends with he was a kid obsessed..

"So there was an intellectual hurdle that I had to get over in my own head about. Am I telling a story that's already been done to death? And the more I thought about it, the more I thought, okay, Philadelphia is really parochial. It's kind of gotten under the dome kind of sensibility if you're familiar at all with the area. So while people here might know the lower Marion story or a little bit more about the Italy side of Kobe's story, the rest of the country in maybe the rest of the world don't. And I really wanted to put Kobe in his in the proper sense of time and place, like the era of him being a teenager. The place of lower Marion. What is it about this community? What was it about this high school in some ways that allowed him to become who he was? It wasn't totally because of that. It wasn't totally that, he grew up in lower Marion, therefore, he adopted the mamba mentality. But that aspect of his story really appealed to me. Because, as you said, nobody had really gone that deep on it. You read stuff, and it's like, yeah, we played it lower Marion high school. Okay, well what does that mean? There are certain connotations to that. If you're familiar with the place of lower Marion township or the mainline on Philadelphia, there are certain kind of stereotypes and connotations that come up. But what was the actual history there? What aspects of his Kobe's story in that setting had not been told and how can I put him in his time and place in that spot to show how he became who he became? So let's talk about that. The family moves to lower Marion when he is 12. Yes. In December of 1991, he had just turned 13. Just turned 13, who is Kobe Bryant, you know, son of Joe Bryant, former NBA player who has now grown up mostly in Italy and has moved with his family at age 13 to the outskirts of Philadelphia, who is Kobe in that moment and what about that? Do you think does now inform us about the Kobe that we would all come to know? Well, in a lot of respects he's an outsider, okay? So he steps into the lower Marion community. He's not in high school just yet. He's he shows up at balakin with middle school in 8th grade and kind of the middle of the school year. He doesn't know what's cool. He doesn't know what kind of clothes to wear. What clothes are cool? What music is cool? What TV shows are cool. He doesn't know that everybody's watching the Cosby show or cheers or The Simpsons or listening to this kind of music or that kind of music..

"Has there ever been someone defeated when seeking election to a second four year term? Third terms? Yes. Second terms. No. And that's where every either major party So it tells you just how big the road is. The Jim James Craig has to take down Gretchen Whitmer. But speaking about my buddy Bill Ballenger, and we wanted to get him on today and we weren't able to make the connection. He's got a great blog post today. Here's the headline Whitmer, maybe Michigan's worst governor ever. But she's still likely to be re elected. Uh and he makes it pretty strong case, he said. It's not even her handling of the state's response to the covid epidemic, though, he said. She certainly has destroyed businesses, damaged public education, ruins people's livelihoods and injured their physical and mental health. He said. It didn't have to be this bad incoherence, unpredictability and internal contradictions of Whitman's unilateral mandates have been apparent to all even while she didn't follow her own edicts. Michiganders learned that she doesn't abide by the same freedom killing rules she imposed on every resident of Michigan. She shunned masked when she's with her friends. She was caught red handed, violating her own social distancing guidelines. And, of course, she went on that now infamous trip down to Florida and he says, for those that want to call me is sexist, and I'm just picking on the female governor. He said. Look, I don't think she can hold a candle to Jennifer Grand home he makes she makes grand home look like a combination of Winston Churchill and Joan of Arc. And he goes on, and I mean it's line five. It's one thing after another, And as he says, it's also the transparency, the fact that when she was called out Some of her duplicity on these things. That she ducked it. She didn't answer the questions. Um, I want to give you a little bit more about James Craig. He talked about how he became a Republican. And we invite your your thoughts on. What do you think he makes an effective candidate against scratching? Whitmer, 1 808 5909571 808 590 wjr. Delighted to hear from you. He talked about the fact that he was in Los Angeles. In the beginning of the conversion is he was watching How democratic policies in the city of Angels just weren't working. Cut for what struck me early in my police career. Is that many African Americans are most vulnerable communities. We're in a tragic cycle of poverty. That was generational. And while I couldn't fully understand the reasons I realized that the policies in many of our cities fail, I came to realize that the Republican Party's initial fight to end physical bondage. Was today, replaced by economic bondage, which we see in our vulnerable communities of color. We know That handouts increased dependency on government. Only for the purpose of political game. No, he made he made a very impassioned self reliance message. And I thought resonated. Really, Especially with the one lady there in the audience that apparently thought she was in church. Yeah, Yeah, it's so And also, he said, you know, is it my my conversion went, I went further to the right. When Maxine Waters came to town in the wake of the Rodney King. Riots and I had her speak to a group of African American law enforcement officers. It's a group called the Oscar Joe Bryant Foundation, he said. I invited her to speak. We were going to. We were there to talk about solutions, but we got something much different from her cut. Five And during our meeting she displayed disrespect..

"ESPN radio alongside Mike Wells and Myron Metcalf. I'm Joe Fortune ball, and it is a big day. For the world of basketball as the 2020 Yes. 2020 Hall of Fame class will be inducted into the Naysmith Basketball Hall of Fame tonight. The speeches are set to be given in the next few hours will break to it. If something pops up that we'd like to share with you, but the three big headliners tonight, Myron Tim Duncan. Kevin Garnett and none other than the late great Kobe Bryant. We've been sharing stories with listeners. We've been sharing stories with each other throughout the course of the show, Kobe Bryant when he comes to mind, is there specific moment, a specific game specific error that stands out to you? That is just Pure vintage Kobe. Well, I think maybe off the court I'd covered in instantly Tournament game a couple years back, and he and bloody healed Who's now with the Sacramento Kings that formed a relationship and I looked up and Kobe's there once, but there's a lot of buzz about that. He's like in the eighth row. Just kind of hanging out. And I remember after the game, Buddy Hill goes up and he was talking to Kobe and you could just see just sort of all struck He Woz. It was like his idol was in front of him, and I think That's what Kobe Bryant represented for this generation of players. They wanted to be him. Hey, wanted to you, Mike, but they wanted to be him. I think more than anything, of all the incredible moments he's had five championships coming out of high school. To me. It's just the fact Mike that he carried that wait. I mean, this guy who had to be good the buzz out of high school and then you're in l A. They're just so many reasons that a player in that position who was 17 when he was drafted, I believe would have failed. Jerry West believed in him, and he's lived up to the hype and some you just kind of wish he was here I was. You definitely wish he was here, but I think it'll be a great celebration of his life and career at the Hall of Fame today. We We know about Kobe, the basketball player and obviously what he's you know, touch something lives. What I liked about him was it wasn't just about the MBA. I mean, he loved going to W NBA games, taking his daughter G there and, you know, coaching, helping coach that they're a team. That's a side that I liked about Kobe. It wasn't just that he you know the multiple championships that he won the competitive side trying to go toe to toe. And when, as many titles as Michael Jordan and being arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, it was his idea his soft side and when I say soft, I don't mean truly soft but decide that you know the passionate side of wanting to have his daughter, you know, be one of the best basketball players in her age group and just support the WN BA players. It's funny. I was on a flight to Phoenix. Prior to the pandemic, and I just happen to get sitting, too, said I was sitting next to a family and their daughter that was on the one on the diving team in the Olympics. And they went over the Beijing in pretty for the Olympics. What was it? 22,008 of them always taken? You know, eight, And they said that Kobe would be in all the different events and they were showing me pictures on your phone of Kobe. Just being a spectator. So while he wanted to be the passionate side of being in the gym nonstop, like like Joe mentioned a story earlier. He also wanted to support others, and that's what I liked about Kobe Bryant and in part B was when he towards Achilles. And he got back in no time. The following season, He wanted to be on the basketball court and show that he was still one of the top dogs. Mike Wells, Myron Medcalf, Joe 14 Ball. This is Game day on ESPN radio. It's fascinating to sit back and look at it as a whole because this was one of the few individuals we got to watch from a very young age mature all the way through being an adult. Mean, we get introduced to a lot of these guys. Maybe when they're in college, you know, Think about college football. We got to meet Trevor Laurence a little bit. We got to know a little bit about his private life. But now we're going to see him as a football player. You know, we heard about Kobe early because his father was Joe Bryant, former basketball player right? And you know he's overseas growing up in Italy, So you hear about them a little bit much like you heard about a guy like Bryce Harper or Stephen Strasburg, for example. Or LeBron James, and then he comes into the public eye with no college. So we're meeting him at 17 and 18 years old and then immediately traded to Los Angeles, which Musicians, Actors, athletes, whatever it could be, could fall temptation to all of that. And just wash out almost immediately. 18 years old. Oh, by the way, you're playing with shack. Oh, by the way right away, you're playing for titles. Like putting all that on the shoulders and then watching them grow up, watching him play well, watching him make mistakes both on and off the court, watching him grow, watching him learn, watching him evolve and get married and evolve and have Children and evolved from from more than just this young basketball player. That was at one point notice Joe Bryant's kid to ultimately Kobe Bryant. Leader, community leader. White husband, Father mentor All these things later in life. I mean, that's why I think it stung so badly to see him taken away from all of us because we had watched that progression and he was getting better and better and better. And obviously, the basketball. You know, you get older in the game falls apart a little bit. That's gonna happen, everyone, but as a human, it just got better and better watching him throughout. And I think that was the toughest thing for so many of us, Myron When he was taken away. So young and so tragically is that we have been watching just greatness on and off the court grow. Over two plus decades. Yeah, and to watch Michael Jordan, shedding tears at the memorials for Kobe Bryant and to share about their relationship, and it was almost like Michael Jordan was saying Maybe that was the one guy who understood me. Like like you. Even though he was younger, they had the same mindset on became friends. And, Yeah, you wish she was here. You know, this is such a tragic thing to think back to what happened. But you're also happy that his life will be celebrated like Mike to me. That group of guys Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant. Who go from high school to the pros right away. I think that's the last generation of high school legends. And I say that because we saw LeBron James, playing from his sophomore year on All of these guys travel the world now and they play each other, so there is a lot of mystery. About these players, even if they go into college or go right away to the MBA, whereas Kobe Bryant, it was a mystery Wait, he's doing what in Philly and then you had Kevin Garnett wait. He's doing what in Chicago, so I think they represent that last generation of legendary preps players and they're both lived up to the height. Well, you know, that was the time the pre YouTube videos where you know people were clicking on him nonstop. I mean, LeBron had people following him nonstop from, you know, like you said, from the age of, you know, essentially 14 15 years old, but that's that generation. Where, Okay. Were they went through that run with Garnett 95. Then you had Jermaine O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and 96.

not consistent with consensual sexy his body was also found on his tee shirt the case was dropped after the woman decided not to testify in a civil suit was settled out of court in a statement Brian

law center among the co founders of the times up legal defense fund we welcome you both to democracy now Dave why don't you start off by just talking about Kobe Bryant was or no absolutely hello Amy I I think what people need to remember particularly democracy now listeners you don't quite understand the scale of grief and outpouring that's taking place right now is that Kobe Bryant first became part of the public consciousness at age seventeen as a high school senior and he died yesterday at the age of forty one that means for over half of Kobe Bryant's life he's part of the public eye and I think there's this tremendous association that people had with him and with his career when Kobe Bryant was the kind of player that people felt passionate about some people love them some people hated him some people loved and hated him for things that happened on the court some people for what happened off the court but over the course of his career he not only excelled as a player you know he was an eighteen time all star for goodness sakes but he was also very much a global athlete his name is Kobe because his father was a basketball player named Joe Bryant who traveled the world and Colby was named after Kobe Japan where Kobe played Kobe grew up in Italy he spoke fluent Italian he spoke Spanish there's a basketball player named Luke a docket sheet and Kobe would speak to him and slid many in it's Kobe had this global appeal which has led to this outpouring of grief that we see today and for a lot of folks as you know it people just thought the second act of Kobe's life was just getting started at age forty one and I think when you factor in the death of Gigi is well who had aspirations to be a basketball player in her own right it's almost like the future that people softer Kobe was just a race in the blink of an eye and I think that's what people are suffering with right now and can you talk more about his daughter Gigi who is also be logged and really got him into women's basketball he said he wasn't even watching it after he finished in two thousand sixteen after he retired well he wasn't watching any basketball after he finished he wanted to be the sort of athlete who didn't hang around the game but instead moved on to other challenges and the and other other jobs he wanted to be a big creative producer out in Hollywood and a mogul really and a lot of players were looking to Kobe to to blaze that path as a mobile but then his daughter became a basketball obsessive not unlike her dad the obsessive in the best possible sense just an absolute lover of the game and that brought Kobe back into the game particularly into the sphere of women's basketball he became a a girls basketball coach he became someone who just this past last month made news where he talked about that there are women who should be playing in the NBA right now and that he was going to be someone who who took it upon himself to champion the W. NBA going forward and Gigi was was part of those dreams there's this amazing clip that's going around of Kobe on a talk show and about someone coming up the Kobe in Gigi and saying to him would be amazing if you had a son because your son could carry on your legacy and Gigi actually stepping in interrupting the conversation and saying no now I got this and of course Gigi died in that helicopter crash as well can you talk now about what happened in two thousand three Dave siren what happened in Colorado well be Frank with you first and foremost it's difficult to discuss because you want to give people space to mourn right now and I I feel like there is going to be time to discuss all of this but I also understand that this is part of Kobe's legacy and it does need to be discussed in two thousand and three Kobe was charged with sexual assault in two thousand five of the charges were dropped when his accuser did not testify and Kobe's lawyers absolutely engage in a scorched earth campaign against his accuser that was so intense they actually change the rape shield laws in Colorado because they were so vicious towards her now part of the settlement that that the part of the deal that you Kobe in terms of the civil suit of of writing a very large check to make the the charges go away involved Kobe writing out an apology that was read in court where Kobe acknowledge that he did not think that his accuser had offered consent in their encounter and I have to tell you like I'm speaking with back then in two thousand five that hadn't really been seen before I mean and now I think it probably doesn't I don't know how we would look at it in two thousand twenty in our area today but in two thousand five offering that statement where he spoke about the issue of consent I know that for a lot of organizations that work in restorative justice circles the views that statement as a way to speak about the importance of understanding consent in the importance of fighting sexual assault and rape culture so I'd like to bring in fact Amanda Grasse Goss graves here president CEO of the national women's law center going back to that two thousand three moment in Colorado where the woman authority said head injuries not consistent with consensual sex her blood found on Kobe Bryant's T. shirt and then that statement in the settlement that he made in two thousand four after months of reviewing discovery listening to our attorney and even your testimony in person I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter on if you can share your thoughts today on on Kobe Bryant's legacy well I should begin by eight offering my condolences to his family to his friends I was in college and now way when he first came to the Lakers and it all seems too soon and at the same time we have to think about how it is that we talk about legacies it's it's often too easy to a race the bad parts of legacy but in this moment it's especially important that we contextualizing everything about his legacy on and off the court including the sexual violence where the page was probably turn too soon I hope fifteen years later when we think about this and sense we can think about it a little bit differently we can think about how to survivors are feeling in this moment as well Davis iron your final box stuff so so so beautifully and so eloquently I have little to add except that I think it's very important that we keep in mind today and hold to our hearts the bride's family the out the belly family survivors and everybody who is processing this grief in in their own way it's important that we not police people's grief it's important instead that we listen to what everybody has to say because this is something that's affecting people in a way that's far broader than basketball I want to thank you both for being with us and Fatima Goss graves you're going to be staying with us as we talk about what's happened in this last week with the first sitting president in history to attend an address an anti choice March the major so called March for life in Washington Dave siren thanks for being with us sports editor for the nation magazine Fatima Goss graves president of the national women's law center stay with okay sounds good see now this is democracy now democracy.

Kobe was was destined for greatness in a lot of pedigree. You uh-huh coming from his uncle Chubby Cox coming from you. Know his his dad Joe Bryant and his mom and her whole her old special You know attributes and you know you saw that and cool because I heard that the killer in Kobe comes from his mom because his mom was no nonsense like yeah. You know like you know what I'm saying. So you know he had he had he had all those special treats in one and he was just disgusting to be great. You know from from from from a very early age. There's a summer game talked about and I know there's video on the website website of the Philadelphia Inquirer you against Koby. You had him on the first half right and then what happened that second hand so that somebody gave interesting because everybody talks about the The wintertime game when Roman play Lower Marian at Drexel University but mostly it was mostly coaches at the game in the summertime. And the interesting thing about that. That game is like you know one day I was watching sports center. And that's SORTA reality Colby. You know we're going at each other and I think reality says something to the extent of year. Kobe is just a selfish. Do Man like you know with his teammates. Have their nights he's a guy that's still wants to dominate the ball. And and don't let law guys to have their night in play within the team. And and that Sorta Kobe had called his phone. It was like Oh man you were saying about me the next time you know we played. I'm you know Russia. You know what I'm saying so I said Yo man that dude been doing. That's just high school. I said because my junior year going into my senior year when he became number one player in the country you know we played in the same summer league like ruined low. Mary in the Roman played in the same summer league. Right so I know going into that now my I junior year we were we were high number one. In the country. Number two number three in the country and we we straddle and we're in the top ten that whole entire year until we were loaded we had Larry cutting her former. NBA Player A young Russell Butler thirteen year. NBA Player. Joe Arpaio Davis Myself to Mir Harbin Ronnie Conway like we had you know eight division one players and you know after the my junior year we we were projected for the next for the following year to be you know the number two team in the country. So you know it's a big summer league game coming up between Roman Law Marion and you know. Kobe doesn't know and a lot of people know hasn't been confirmed whether two of our best players were transferred. So I'm on the phone with my high school sweetheart. You know just talking you know the summertime and you know I'm just talking to my a girlfriend and back then you didn't have caller ID. So I'll get people my phone. I get the people my phone I took over. Hello you'll dumb stuff that man. I'm like oh I'm going on. Like who is he like IOS. Biman's me it's it's cool. I'm like oh I'm cool. What's going on man? I'm Chilean doing nothing. So you ain't doing that. Man Just you know on the phone girl. Man chilling out me is it. Oh yeah that's something quick question for you. He's like it's our Dave is going to be at the game tomorrow. I was like immediately. I'm like this do fishing. Like why is he asking me is going to be at the game. I don't know why what's up man. He's like if if y'all come to the game In a jar. You know what I'm saying. You know we can get it on a man 'cause. UNM is going to be me. We could really get an on on both y'all against me he said. But if it's just you don't even know if it's worth me coming so a double ticket the phone like he really just say that and I slammed the phone down. Oh and my sister and into the room it was like Oh are you all right like ah man to just call me. Basically saying that I'm not on this level that you know it's not even worth. It's time if if it's just me come to told her the story. She's like calm down. No I can't wait to the game for the game tomorrow. Now we didn't know is that you know Bobby Knight was going to be at the gave himself coach K.. was at the game himself. Rick Pitino is going to be at the game like Steve Fisher like the. Who's who caused basketball along with the the former Hey coaches seventy sixers. At the time John Lucas was gonna you know it was going to be at the right here so you know I get to the game. It's all these the people and I'll tell my sister cooks like Oh what happened. I'm like I told him the story dining like summertime game you. No I don't care about you filing out. I know he's GonNa Guard you 'cause we know Kobe's GonNa WanNa create a challenge for so so I want you to go out and show all these people that you're just as good if not better than coby so I'm like cool. I was hyped up. I was fired up because of what he did You know we normally shake hands. Isn't embrace each other before the Games. I didn't shake his hand and nothing. So you know about and I had a great first half you know go ahead. I twenty five at F Four Philip. Good about myself second-half combs. Kobe has thirty two in the second. Half and I'll wind up having four and He finished thirty six points. Twelve rebounds eight assists options for my twenty nine nine nine and You know I never forget. He did this move like in the second half he was nine. Meet a ball. And my my my teammate was trying to force me the ball and he chipped it you know and it was two guys running for the ball and there was another guy running back. He caught up to the ball and whipped the ball between his leagues and like Split Defenders. And then the guy that was running back in transition try to beat them to the ball is still a boy. He threw the ball and with the behind his back. And just grab the ball and just took off like right below the foul line from the dotted line with two hands. Just are hiring. I ah I just go ferocious dunk. Oh it just came down. Swing swing on a rummy came down and he just had this look on his face. Ace was like basically. y'All know I'm that dude. y'All know I'm the best player on the floor not even close and it's just like you know he did this other move part of the you know when I was telling you the story about him and ninety three. You know being skinny guy. That couldn't really been down stuff like that. You know my vans then was shorter them so I would get underneath from you know. The little man wins in basketball so I kinda dictate his movements and like like you know be able to deflect the ball from even steal it from him sometimes but you know I told you two years later. He was doing unbelievable stuff. He had a personal trainer Mary. He was getting stronger. Lateral quickness was coming his bowls his body was going now. He's more athletic. So this and this particular game in that in S. seen game in the second half you know I'm I'm trying to get up under him but he had dropped his shoulder and it was really the identical move. Yeah Michael Jordan hit Brian Russia with to win the NBA finals. It was the exact same move. The only difference was Michael. Jordan had the ball on the left side of the court and like going towards the middle. The difference was Kobe was on the right side of the court going towards like you know the baseline sideline and I'm driving company any more and he liked road and you know back then his him and his dad used to speak a language that nobody understood they were speaking. You know fluid Italian. You know what I mean. It is on the sideline yelling instructions. So you know you you know. I'm in ten some fired up. You know you know. I think I'm bringing it to him and his dad's Ashtiani structures. I'm underneath him and he dropped his shoulder. He just made that that same crossover move about all my all. My momentum in was going you know with the move trying to cut him off going right and he rolled the crossover step back. And you know like shook me out of my shook me on my my shoes. I can just remember. His Dad said Oh yes and it was just like a rhythm shot. He just held his foul throughout the Cross. Me Over and switch the shot and it was just like Yeoman that was that was a next level move man long story short. You know we lost that game at the Buzzer by one I never forget like fall into the floor distraught. Like just you know upset that we lost a game and Kobe is coming over to me. Picking me up. You know hugging me like Yo man. Don't worry about man's on the Summer League gay man you know. There's only a basketball game man but you know I love competing against you. You bring the best out hardy man. You know we'll see each other. Hold your head up. And that's kind of how that game ended you know everything you're saying again just to sort of flows with everything. Everyone else is saying. I mean we talk about it like it's a cliche right now. Don't we Donnie with Columba mentality. But there's something real there this this drives and I think that's what people admire so much. They they want it for themselves in and out basketball beyond basketball. This.
