So we can talk if you're prepared, you have no idea. Sports riding guys that I had to deal with in early seventy s they were like you know from the Nineteen Thirties. They were unprepared and any black athletes who is probably stupid and semi literate should not be have the temerity to. Speak to them about things that That black people aren't supposed to be talking about. That didn't work because. Kareem Abdul Jabbar. It's one of the greatest athletes of his generation. We will his fights with Bruce Lee. And he's one of the greatest basketball players of all time but he calls himself of writer who played basketball basketball isn't who he was what he did. Writing is at the core of who he is. For example I asked him if he was playing for the Lakers now would he neil for the anthem or something and he said I get my pen and my passion I I'd write about it. Try to get it published. That has always been. My answer to one express myself. Especially when I was at odds with a number of the fourth reporters. Because I was thinking stuff beyond sports and the issues that were important to me were things that they didn't want to talk about. But would you do something on the court or no? No I wouldn't. Do It on the court. He's a writer at his core. That said get it. Twisted Kareem has always been down for the protest. He just realized that his particular gifts meant that he had to really explain why he was protesting I did do a demonstration on UCLA campus right after Dr King was assassinated and just a group of US standing along and walk.

Nick Cannon out at Viacom, keeps deal with Fox

"I'm Kim, masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as my usual banter buddy on the business, Matt Bellamy and Matt this is very unfortunate situation that has developed There's a sort of a back and forth in the black media world, their business antisemitic incidents most recently I think is nick. Cannon was on a podcast, endorsed some clearly antisemitic views about Jews controlling the media, and whatever the these are old tropes. I have to say to her credit. jemele hill weighed in saying this kind of talk is unacceptable as did Kareem abdul-jabbar and a column in the Hollywood reporter, but this nick cannon incident he led to him, being fired by Viacom CBS a, he initially clapped back, and said you know. The CBS was treating him unfairly, and then seemed to have major change of heart and apologized and said he was gonNA learn, and he was sorry for the hurt he had inflicted, but. What's interesting to me? Is that while he fired? He had this show on vh. One called wild and out and other things going on CBS. He also is the host of the mass singer on Fox and you know. How surprised are you that Fox said that apology is completely acceptable. We're hanging with you on the mass singer. Yeah, I mean this really does point to an interesting dichotomy that's emerging especially when you look at a lot of the heightened sensitivity around these issues of hate, speech and inappropriate comments that have really come about over the past six to eight months. Fox seems to be an outlier here and a lot of people have put it in monthly. Yes, a lot of people have pointed to Fox News, which obviously is the home of many incendiary comments? Tucker Carlson was recently forced to go on one of those quote, unquote preplanned Fox News vacations when it was revealed that his lead writer was revealed to be posting anonymously on racist and homophobic and sexist websites. This is always been you know. The Fox News is separate from Fox Broadcasting Corporation which is run out of La. It's all owned by the Murdoch's, but Fox's always positioned itself as we have the LA operation. And then we have this Fox News thing, but here you have. Have a very specific incident on a Fox show with the host of not just a Fox show the most popular show on Fox and the Murdoch seemed to be okay with it. It sends a message that this isn't just Fox News separate from the La Company. This is all one company in the Murdoch's seemed to be endorsing a very tolerant. Shall we say view of this kind of speech? Yeah, the MURDOCHS ARE GONNA Murdoch. You know they they run the company. It's theirs and. Walk is possibly even more conservative than his father Rupert I'm not saying that a person can't apologize. Learn but I think when you make comments like this that nick cannon made. You. You don't just return with no without missing a beat. It's like okay, thanks. That's great. That just feels to me like it needs a little bit more of a pause. And why don't you go away for a little while and seek the truth and come back when you you feel that you know there's been a an interval I. Don't know if you reversed the situation and he were white host. Making these kinds of comments about say black people. That host would still have a job. That's an interesting question I. Don't know, but what is also interesting is just the state of the. The Fox company now because until last year Fox owned a movie Studio Television Studio a lot of businesses that have traditionally more liberal and more creative types in them. Now they've gotten rid of all that stuff to Disney and the Fox company is Basically Fox, news sports and the Fox Broadcasting Company, and it really has allowed them to be insulated from what's going on in the rest of media, which has been very attuned to these issues and very intolerant of this kind of hate speech. Fox's now kind of sewing its own path. Yes, now it's a little more obvious. Thank you, Matt! Belen former editorial director of the Hollywood.

He is Kareem abdul-jabbar. How are you sir? I'm doing okay. Are you I'm doing better for talking to you and I appreciate your time. I want to give you the floor. What is in your heart and mind this morning Kareem abdul-jabbar? Well. You know it's kind of like I'm caught between hope and history know. Hope, that Our nation is going to make the changes that needed to make to realize. You know its place and you know what it means, and how important it is that we. Uphold. What the founding fathers actually talked about you know. What Mister Jefferson wrote in a declaration that all men are created equal. We gotta make that a reality. And I think. The events of the past week or so have really shown. To all of America. How much that is not that. and. We. We have to fix that. We have to fix it. What are your thoughts? Your emotions when you're now in twenty twenty, talking about what appears to be the very same issue. You were talking about in the late sixties Kareem. Famous I, I remember the very first time I became aware of it I was seventeen years old, and a young man named James POW was killed by a police officer named Thomas. Get Look at in. Parliament. Erupted into a riot. You know and I could've got shot I. Could you know just? Being out on the street was was dangerous and you know. It hasn't changed any. It's the same exact issue. The same exact issue. Colin Kaepernick. Tried very hard to demonstrate peacefully about this very issue. And what happened to him? He was ostracized. He lost his job. He was blackballed. And this is the this issue. He was trying to talk about and it. Seems that the powers that be did not like him bringing it up. So, what would you counsel today? What will you? What what I guess in a way? That's bringing it to what you you wrote about in your op Ed and I'd like to give you the floor on that subject Kareem. abdul-jabbar that p people have to listen. You know. The. The criminal justice system is tainted with racism from top to bottom. It discriminates. And it makes people suffer and that has to end. It has to end. We have to find a way how? Make criminal cops accountable you know. The good cops. The overwhelming majority of cops are good cops in they suffer to. When bad cops do what they do, so you know we need to find something. To hold a bad cops accountable and keep them from destroying everything that they destroy. Families are trust in the law. they they they, they squandered the good deeds of all the cops. So you know, something needs to be done about. Well also the headline. Make a friend with someone who doesn't look like you. What do you mean? That's a great idea and. Understanding humanity and Understand that Despite the the difference in looks. They might like chess or collecting stamps or whatever it is. that. You like so You know, find out. What we have in common in our great nation. It's the one place to do that. So. What does it mean that? That that would be here. In Two thousand and twenty fresh advice right? I mean I. It's it's kind of. A simple thing to just suggest but. How how how do we come together in that regard Kareem. We? We come together every day I mean. In our nation in especially in the cities of our they the. People of? Incredibly. Very backgrounds come together and work together in and continue to make this the greatest nation in the world. That's what America is about. And we, we gotTA keep happening. We we. We can't let. You know. We we we can't let bias and discrimination. Just? Make a mess of it. You know we can't do that. To find a way to cope. What do you think Mohammed? Ali would think of this moment. Well My. Spoke out. Numerous Times about police violence It wasn't a new issue for him. You can go back in. Check his his statement. You'll see that. He actually spoke out on these issues. Kareem abdul-jabbar here on the rich Eisen show What would you suggest? politicians do people in power people who could make change when when? Power I mean they need to talk to the people they need to talk to each other and figure out a way legislation legislatively. To put laws in effect that will enable people. To eliminate bad cops. That's just bad cops. Be Amazed how how much healing that that that would promote if that was a possibility that they could. Put things that they do. Is there any specific part of the constitution you'd call? People to to take a look at Karim. I know you're. You're somebody who knows that document very well Is there a particular spot that you would say? Hey, person in charge X. Y.. Go. Check this out. Well. The whole idea of promoting voting and making the vote available. Making it possible to vote, I, think is. Part of what our democracy is imbalanced and. Too many especially in red states. They're trying to cut it back in claiming that there's voter fraud. Still grow the front voter fraud is is is not a problem in our country. Unless the Russians are are are are meddling in our elections. So you know we we've got to. Got To make the idea of one man one vote and everybody equal under the law. We have to make those two things a reality. and. I'm hoping that people can hear that well. I know you've written about the fifteenth amendment in per in particular. What did what did? What do you want to bring to the People Who are listening right now? Viewing right now, who may not be familiar with your your thoughts on the subject Kareem, but just you know just consider. To. Keep Black people from voting you know in. The reconstruction of the south. Any black people who tried to work. With violence, That's what you're. That's an American tradition. you know it? Black people voting. In all elections without harassment is very recent phenomenon. And sometimes that seems. To win okay. We gotta make. It possible for. Participate in our democracy. That's a must.

"Black lives matter. It's it's. It's mainstream now Jacoby the the. Cancel culture into reality of watching a human being like George Floyd get killed with this need to his neck with people were dealing with the coronavirus under a pandemic is forced to Washington for nine minutes has been a unique awaken in in our country. They even Roger Goodell. In the NFL have to recognize if you wanted to be genuine. What they should have done P.. R. One. Oh One. You should gather about ten or fifteen owners and do a version of the video that the players did if forced you to do it. s would have showed me something. And, you say systemic. You mean ownership. GM's presidents coaches people in decision, making position empower not many blacks in your league. I WANNA see it. That's the action, not the words. And I also feel that everything. He said what he didn't say. It was one of the most important things he said. We didn't listen to NFL players. He didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name Colin. Cabinet this literally cost him his career to fight against social injustice, and I personally feel that he deserves to be mentioned because he. He said we didn't listen to. NFL players with the NFL players are still NFL. Players and it cost. Cowan cabinet. His career I think he definitely should have been mentioned by name this video. Don't you agree? Absolutely and the civil uprising with people from all racist from all countries, all sides of the world. Jacoby London The Netherlands Africa, this movement has created such a groundswell that forces the NFL to acknowledge that they were wrong yet. Still Kit acknowledged Colin Kaepernick by name. Couldn't acknowledge him by name that that's the step to admitting you're wrong. Is Acknowledgement still didn't happen in so I'm disappointed by that. Well there's a really interesting twist to this because if you sort of admit that you're wrong that you should have listened nfl players when you condemn them kneeling during the national anthem. What about this season? Adrian Peterson a veteran. Here's what he had to say about potentially kneeling this season, he said the following quote. Just four years ago, you're seeing cabinet taking a knee. And now we're all getting ready to take a knee together going into the season without a doubt. Yes without a doubt without a doubt, he plans on taking a knee. Interesting, he went on to say. We've got to put the effort in as a group collectively. Are they going to try to punish us all? If not playing football is going to help us save lives and change things than that's what it needs to be Jalen. Do you see in nfl where you see a majority of the players taking a knee from the anthem? I do and it's going to happen. And this power and platform actually existed for NFL NBA. Entertainers of US for years ago. The difference is when you look back a history. A lot of us are going to be on the wrong side of it. They can column probably shouldn't take is protest to work. That's the biggest stage. That's what people are paying attention, so if I'M GONNA kneel rather do it. It on Sunday at work. They don't Tuesday or my day off. Especially peacefully now the players have been emboldened so the swell of people that did it before. See the groundswell of corporate. America happened to recognize our voices legitimately, and so now is GonNa? Give other black athletes, and why athletes in the NFL the freedom to actually feel if they wanted to kneel MP's that they can actually do so. One of the most powerful athlete voices that we have ever seen in history joins us right after this Kareem abdul-jabbar join Justin just. Treat me. Accusations! We'll be right back.

Thank you so much for taking the time we appreciate joined the program and you recently tweeted that you were into your thoughts reevaluating what it means to be black in America. What exactly did you mean by that? You have to just think back about how life in America has affected you as a black person? And for me, it's It's had its ups and downs, but it all started for me back in one thousand, nine hundred. Eight years old one. Emmett till. was murdered and I didn't understand that and.

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

ESPN Daily

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

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

"We have my friend, my teammates. Somebody's that very very special to be that. I actually got a chance to. Do So special thing with Kareem Abdul Jabbar and cap for the rest of this segment. I'm going to call you cap because that's how I know you how you doing sir. I am doing wonderful. Wonderful, wonderful heavily. Everybody in your family being safe with this. Cove at nineteen. There's going on Everybody says everybody's everybody's well. Thank goodness. My to motorsports on the front line, a one sir administrator administrators wanted us to doctor, and now out there fighting this thing on a really profitable and. Of course of concern, okay, but they are saying yes. In the so help! A great job, good, good good. Thank thing here. Cap on what you have fun with me today you. Know. You're going to do that, but the first thing. I'd like to say paid homage to you because again. One of the things growing up here in Pasadena California. I had an opportunity to get drafted by Los Angeles. Lakers and I'm going to say something that I've never told anybody before Al Tell. You, I remember, and you remember with Loyola Marymount had that old Jimbo but there before they refurbished the new one that they have now. I walked into the gym and Nineteen Seventy Nine, and I saw you down. The other end shoots skyhooks and kept almost pissed my pants man, because I was walking into legendary status in seeing you at Ucla and the things that don't the Lakers. I was very honored to be there so i. tell you that I haven't told anybody else, but. You know. Put. My depends on, but you really scared the shit out. There, so we're looking wave. You are. In your rookie year, your guy you and. Heart and your commitment to the team, and then the. One hundred percent every year she played. And I WANNA. Thank you, I remember. I was out there, trying to airlock. WHO's a skinny guy flying over my shoulder? You know it's. Twenty one. School! Goes back. Thank you. Let's start this off by what was your thoughts? When they brought in coach mckinney from Portland, they started assembling a team Obviously they brought him Magic Johnson's gentlemen to your your less daughter, what we saw at nine hundred eighty season. When we were getting ready to go into this season. What were your thoughts about that? Well I. I was looking forward to. You're shaking things up. Because magic such unique talents you know with his. To be a a six nine. Is Great rebounder in greatest appointing forward kind of Dr Guard. A. Amazing now. We got the attention, Cope will. Doing the same type of thing, but your magic really was sworn size. That could feel to handle that. Were you excited about him? Because I know before the season before he can get norm Nixon, some of the people pitching in screen behind you. DAMARA Wilkes You guys had a formidable trio. And now you add all these new pieces myself but magic was a major piece. Did you really think he was GonNa? Turn out to be the type of player he became. While I overheard deliberate the ANC to a tournament. Outstanding Player and Heard that so I knew he could. He was GONNA contribute. I didn't know what it was going to contribute. I expected A. As you as Though he didn't let us know. Special Person kept one of the things I'm GONNA. Take you down memory lane a little bit. What was it like plan for a legendary coach John Wooden at Ucla. I think. It was something that I took regretted. Go because I had so much success while I was in high school. So. I just took for granted that ignited gold right for a great college program, but it was. It was very unique. Unique guy in that sense. Industry the gain. He understood influence. Young men in a positive way I. really appreciated. mccollum experience. Graduate I. Had enough credits to get my degree in a whole lot about the game. To, just A. A really positive. Set of options in front of me to choose from. With us on podcast, showtime with COO is Ari my man. Arias here he's GonNa. Ask a couple of questions, but. For you cat would be. So coach wouldn't touch you in that kind of wealth far as an athlete. Did he touching your personal life just to add to a little bit? Yeah. I got to. Talk to coach about stuff that had nothing to do aggressive all. He was English teacher. English Major. For a number of years UCLA. So in stuff to talk about nothing to do with the game is a was refreshing. It took the pressure off and enable need to have a really good. Really Good College experience. You know I enjoyed my glasses I want to get. The. Cream? I, WanNa extend with what your to make. Coupe was saying on the magic thing because. I've been able to cover championship. NBA teams before, and the the we talk about skill and ability, but the the ability to defer one's ego for the betterment of at team, and and we're talking about the coach best player just online. I think that to me is maybe the the the critical point of magic joining the team. Was You know you guys had the willingness to defer ego for the betterment of what needed to be done? WAS THERE I? Don't know of concern, but did you right away? This guy was the real deal because of that. It's really easy to figure it out. Because magic saw his job is to get. He saw his purpose was to allow us to score in facilitate that. Rusty shine because we show he so you also went back and forth on magic at six nine out of our time. Guarding Quick Guards, playing point. So we had to help on that issue, but it never ended up being a problem. And you know we just made. The adjustments need to comments on just. Just to jump on that art for second is that magic is cap said wasn't a very good, individually individual defensive player, but he was probably one of the greatest double teams that we've had in basketball. Being of his is like when we had the double certain people in the post, not the cabinet, but just to get the ball out of that individual players hands. Magic was always there on point most of the time scale, but he made. everybody's a little bit easier because. To help everyone. Six nine. There was nobody is GonNa like Crystal Mountain weighing? Get he he was equal to that. You could have played out forward if he wanted. The Big Butt out there two point. It just gave us all more options. With with the last dance, going on now I'm curious like what would it look like for the eighty seven eighty eight Lakers or even the eighty eight eighty nine Lakers to have camera crews following them around all year like like Jordan his last Eric last dance I. Think you'd see a guys that. Likely, phillies company. When we go out road, trying to do something together. We went through Latin movies. Magic officer Qantas.

"kareem abdul" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

"Three years at at Ucla Kareem abdul-jabbar. In my opinion the most disrespected basketball player. Maybe athlete of all time. He's got an argument to be the greatest NBA history. He certainly the greatest player in college basketball history myself. Get US rolling here. Why is Kareem abdul-jabbar so disrespected man? No-one Kareem abdul-jabbar have the last decade. It's me I will say this. He has this cocktail of being a genius being aloof. And I had to go into that before I give you the Cherry on top. Which really makes them most disrespected athlete. All the time his genius is such that when you talk to them you realize all a bit stepping up. I better go deep into these pages of whatever I'm discussing because Corinne is an intelligent young man. Now let's talk about who. We is in terms of being aloof. He doesn't really care if you don't care about what he's thinking or you don't care to agree with him so that's really important to know that someone says something and they're not trying to move you as much as just tried to enlighten you. But the Cherry on top is that he did all of his greatest work the peak of his powers as a teammate of the most likeable player ever Magic Johnson. And I think that's where it really went wrong for Corinne because he didn't invest his time energy trying to recover any relationships that he may have lost throughout the process of being on the meanwhile magic was doing nothing but trying to get these relationships going and foster in great goodwill in the community and with others so is this that combination man unfortunate but his genius and his distance on top of being with the most likeable player ever really makes people kind of from Karimun his greatness. The number one thing for me is there's a certain amount of recency biased but that you can't trust anything when it comes to the Internet and people who are voting on on ESPN. It's one outlet so to suggest that that is a reflection true reflection of where anybody stands. Historically I think is a is a is an error. Bersell makes a lot of great points. I I hand know what a prickly personality Kareem was. When he was playing and look pictures are more powerful than words and video is more powerful than pictures and we essentially. You're not seeing a whole lot of video of of Kareem abdul-jabbar certainly at the height of his powers when he was playing at UCLA. And so the Michael Jordan. Not only that you see in college but being colored by what he did as a pro all of that is going to influence the voting here but we really look at it wholeheartedly. At who was the better who had the better college career who was the better college player. It's not even close but I think that this is a reflection of the voting the voting process in who is voting as opposed to even the personality of Kareem. I think that was a factor. He played at a time where he was a bit of a Social Justice Warrior. That was a brand new thing and it has his his message. Had to be carried by what was predominantly white male reporters. Let's face it. He didn't get along with them. He didn't look to cultivate those relationships. Those would be the guys that would be speaking for him now and I dare say you don't have a whole lot of them doing that. Yeah I I think we would be remiss. If we also didn't mention his name was lew alcindor change into Kareem abdul-jabbar. There is a biased. I believe against Muslim people here in America. I don't think there was a lot of comfort particularly at that time with him being a Muslim and so I think some of that plays a wrong. But most of this I because again the prickly personality Bill Russell's got a prickly Michael Jordan's got a bit of a pregnant personality and is a bit aloof and those things and trust me Bill Russell Bill Walton Kareem abdul-jabbar Magic. Larry Bird to me. Those guys all had more historic Hollis careers where. I really blame the media. Though is the way we leave. Karim out of the greatest. Nba Player discussion. And there's a lot of us fifty and older who know damn well Kareem abdul-jabbar has might there some of us? They BELIEVE IN I. I honestly do believe this. The Kareem is right there with Michael Jordan six time NBA MVP. We sit around and talk about who the best closer was in basketball in closed this guy and Kareem abdul-jabbar and the reliability of that it was tossed the ball into the seven footer. He dropped Skyhook on you or he kicks it out to someone else because he could make the right past or he would go to the free. Throw line after getting He shot over seventy percent from the free throw line. Kareem abdul-jabbar is the greatest closer in basketball history. And so I don't think we give cream his proper respect as NBA Player. The all time leading scorer somehow with all the championships the MVP somehow can't get in that conversation and that's on us. Yeah I think it said he played with magic and magic gets the lion's share of credit. Or what those teams did. And we didn't see him in Milwaukee Right. It wasn't until he got to the Lakers that we really paid attention to him and again. I will say that that personality next to magic one of the most beloved and gracious when it came to the media when they were playing like it or not. Those were factors. Yeah man you know the and it's not just limited to the Internet I'm glad we're highlighting net. It's media people. It's people who are periods of the sport still look at career with disrespect and look at them in a proper lives. And just an example of this Columbia my Alma Mater was in the hunt for new head coach and Kareem abdul-jabbar. Who from New York City could not even land that Gig because of this perception or misperception of how he relates to others especially the young kids? Eighteen to twenty two year old. Who would've never seen to replay obviously and as we've stated has seen enough highlights of Korean to even give him the reverence necessary so it Kareem K. Get the Columbia job as a basketball coach. You know this stuff is not being looked at properly. It's his greatness. Thanks.

In Black America: Spencer Haywood

"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A.

LeBron James of Los Angeles Lakers says NFL owners have slave mentality

LeBron James of Los Angeles Lakers says NFL owners have slave mentality

"James went after NFL owners. He was critical of NFL owners during the latest episode of the shop earlier tonight Friday night where he said NFL owners, quote have a slave mentality. In the NFL. They got a bunch of old white men owning teams, and they got the slave mentality. And it's like this is my team you do what the blank, I tell you to do all we get rid of your all. So there's more of that. I'd like to see it in its content. I watched tonight on HBO. I'm not that critical of LeBron because of the show the show's a barber shop, that's what the show's all about with celebrities celebrities hanging out in a barbershop hip. Hop stars actors people they're having fun and his executive producer and partner. Maverick carter. Also Todd Gurley was talking business and rapper ice cube. So I'm not going to sit here and analyze every word that was said in a barbershop where a bunch of guys are talking. But the key question that we need to talk about over the weekend. Because this is a big story. My good friend. Chris Moore who was on before me said that this could be a news dump over the weekend. We might forget it. I disagree because we had the government shutdown. We have bad weather on the east coast. Everyone's traveling for the holidays, we might forget about it. We won't forget about this. Because LeBron James is the most important and biggest name athlete in the country with all due respect to Jordan Tom Brady. Tiger woods. It's lebrons world right now. But I think what you have to ask. And I'll ask it for you. Is what is LeBron trying to get out of this? Why would LeBron James want to pick a fight with Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones right to white guys? Really rich owners number one in one a who do a lot and are very inclusive with African Americans. Robert Kraft, obviously does so much good all the charity work. Did he does Jerry Jones all the countless African American players that he's had who got onto greatness who love him sit in the owner's box. Why would LeBron James do this? I'm trying to figure that out eight five five two one two four two two seven. But I'll tell you why he's doing it because LeBron's branching out of basketball. He's in the real estate business. He's in the movie business. He's in the music business. He wants people to know his feelings on this. But Ken, LeBron sit down and have a deep debate. And a discussion on this topic with Jim Brown Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Bill Russell some of the leaders when it comes to the African American community in sports in our lifetime. I think you can I think what LeBron was trying to do is make a point that. There are no guaranteed contracts in the NFL. But does he. Have to use the term slave

Warriors can learn from Showtime Lakers after Durant-Green meltdown

Warriors can learn from Showtime Lakers after Durant-Green meltdown

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Warriors can learn from Showtime Lakers after Durant green meltdown by Scott Osler opportunity knocks before Monday nights courtside meltdown between Draymond green. And Kevin Durant. The warriors were on their way to making history by winning their fourth NBA title in five years, maybe on their way to a couple more titles after that big stuff. They figured to go down in history as phenomenal team with an asterisk so much talent that it was impossible to lose. Now, the warriors can wipe out the asterisk and stamp themselves. As a team that transcends its greatness and teaches the world lessons in character, toughness and brotherhood. If the warriors managed to survive this crisis and win another title, and maybe keep the band together going into next season. Even the doubters and haters will be forced to admit men. This is a team it won't be. Easy. This one goes deep. The case can be made that the warriors were born as championship team in their preseason finale in twenty four teen when power forward David Lee pulled a hamstring. Green was moved into the starting lineup and the warriors won twenty one of their first twenty three games. And haven't looked back does the dynasty now. Die with green. Well, that's up to him to Durant and their teammates one thing that might help. Stop throwing around the cliche that the warriors are like a family and every family has squabbles. Most families Aren composed of multimillionaires from vastly different backgrounds. Superstars, all whose performances and personal lives are inspected and critiqued on a daily basis by millions. If the warriors are a family there the Kardashians. Except that the Kardashians are forced to get along. They have no other options. What is going to leave the show and do summer stock? The warriors. In trying to hold things together and rise above the mess. They've created might wanna give Magic Johnson or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar call back in the eighties. Those to lead the Showtime Lakers to five NBA titles and three other trips to the finals, and I kind of image is the ecstatic Johnson bear hugging Obdulio Jabbar moments after they won their first NBA game together in nineteen seventy nine to the outside world. That's how the Lakers wore for a decade. Conjoined quintuplets fused at the heart. But those two main men magic and Kareem were not tight. It would be hard to find two personalities more destined for conflict. Everybody could see that. We weren't favored POWs or buddies the first three or four years Johnson told sportswriter Steve Springer in me when we co wrote a book about those days magic and the other players tiptoed around Abdul Jabbar, the Mikhael center big fella as they called him soaked public. Weekly. When Johnson got fat new contract. Johnson privately longed for the day when Obdulio jabbar's retirement would allow him to unleash his full array of offensive talents throwing elements of sex drugs and rock and roll a legion doubters and haters and a complex cast of teammates all unfolding onto the spotlight of Hollywood and the birth of the new NBA, and it's a wonder Showtime held together for ten minutes. Let alone ten years in retrospect, it looked so smooth but old fans. Remember, how Johnson became the first athlete ever to fire his head coach and how the front office dynamited team chemistry by trading a beloved all-star, nor Nixon and how the players nearly mutinied at what they perceived as the theatrical tyranny of head coach, Pat Riley, it would take volumes to explain how it worked. But for Johnson it all came down to his pet phrase that seemed as shallow as the LA river. But was as deep as the Pacific Ocean. It's winning time back then parsing out the relative blame in credit was impossible, and useless. Same now with the warriors where does green register on the one to ten guild scale six point five when is Durant going to get that huge warriors forever neck tattoo. We all know how warriors owner Joe lak- feels about the organization, but we're about to find out if this team is light years ahead of the rest of the NBA in unity and character or just another group of skilled squad lers in Steve Kerr, the warriors couldn't possibly have a better head coach to guide them through this turbulence if Dr Phil judge Judy and Jimmy Fallon somehow had a kid it would be Kerr. But this one is on the players. The warriors challenge might be even harder than the one faced by the stone-age Lakers back in the days before Twitter and podcasts, but the concept is the same. Same. It's winning time. There's the time clock warriors. Do you punch in or punch out?
