"Forgive me if this is a dumb question but as a guy who has lived his life being one or two heads taller than almost everybody around you except possibly when you're on the team plane. Did you feel extra worried going out into a demonstration or a protest or march knowing that like you were physically conspicuous invulnerable in a way that was unusual. You certainly worried about that The very first time. I experienced the street violence. You know i was a A jew is between my junior and senior year in high school and i experienced the harlem ryan and fatigue. I'm too tall on here. Stray shots going off. And i got my butt on home after that and you know had a little bit more cautioned about me because when you get out in in in the circumstance that you realize how vulnerable you are so i think you're absolutely right that You know that got be pretty quickly. One of the moments in the documentary that most affected me was when you talked about matthew shepard The gay man who was tortured and killed in the late nineteen nineties. Have you been able to over. The course of these decades synthesize your own experiences of bias oppression and pain with understanding of folks who suffer those things for friday. Reasons will absolutely and you know what you mentioned Just now about matthew. Shepard really was the was the issue Because when i saw you know. I read the article about his murder and to me it was. It was very plain that That that could have been a black guy that Some drunks just said let's let's harass the black guy that could have been him. It could have been a native. American could have been a hispanic person that could have been an asian person on they would have ended up just as dead for the same idiotic reasons so Yeah it really helped me understand. What the real issues are and Y marginalized groups Have to understand that We're all in this together. I want to ask you about something completely different. You suffered from migraine headaches in your life. Was that something that you always outlet. Did you get migraines as a kid. I got migraines as a kid Like from fourth grade on and finally they figured out that i needed to do a sleep study and he found out that i wasn't processing enough oxygen when i slept and that that was the problem so i started doing oxygen at various times and Had had some surgery that opened up my breath. Passage says sort could be open at night. And i haven't had a that problem ever since. Then how old were you when you when they figured that out. That was like right. After i retired. I was in my early forties. I mean that's a big deal to go through an entire twenty year professional basketball career dealing with migraine. How how frequent. Where the headaches. No you. I'm laughing now. It goes to the doctor. The doctor said a listen. You can't breathe at night. How'd you play basketball for twenty years. I mean that's the truth but that's not even talking about the pain. I mean i suffer from migraine as well and like i can barely keep it together to host to public radio show and that will help you right. Now get an oxygen tank and a mask as soon as you feel coming on. Start doing just pure oxygen. It'll it'll chase it. It will chase the headache away. I'm not a doctor but try it you'll see in. You can get a prescription.

"Cause people to think of themselves more as a member of a particular race based on skin color rather the based on the content of their character. There's no national mandate saying this curriculum needs to be taught in public schools but at least five republican led states have now officially banned the theory from public education. Wow this is crazy. Florida isn't just banning teaching about systemic racism. They're doing it while quoting martin luther king junior. And if you guys know this but systemic racism was kind of. Mlk's whole thing you know if you wanna talk about mlk without teaching about systemic racism. Then you just quoting some guy who liked to take long walks for no reason. Also i love that. The governor of florida said that he's doing this so that people will think of themselves based on the content of their character. You sure you want people in florida doing.

"The early nineteen eighties. We're filled with connick basketball stars. Magic johnson larry bird and kareem abdul-jabbar are just a few legends. That played during this era celebrity players. Thrilled fans with their incredible skills on the court but some behavior was not worth celebrating on august twentieth.

The general manager of the utah jazz even speculated that there wasn't a single team in the league that didn't have a drug problem new york knicks star. Micheal ray. Richardson had five. Documented stays at rehabilitation clinics new jersey nets. Forward bernard king had been arrested for cocaine. Possession has had hawks guard eddie johnson. Some estimates claimed seventy five percent of all. Nba players drugs. These habits culminated in the death of shooting guard. Terry furlough furlough died in a fatal car accident. In nineteen eighty an autopsy found ballum and cocaine in his blood. Substance abuse also made players vulnerable to all sorts of criminal activity f. b. i. File suggest that during the nineteen eighty one eighty two season at least three new york knicks players were indebted one of the largest drug dealers on the east coast. These debts lead the knicks to participate in point shaving or intentionally missing shots in order to get a particular score this way. Their drug dealer could place a bet on that score and because of the players cooperation he was guaranteed to win. It was the players way of paying him. Back drugs also wreaked havoc on the players. Mental and physical health stimulants like cocaine can increase in violent behavior. And in this era many players had an extremely physical style of play

"I was going just once. Listen, listen to you every night out here on this road. I just want to say I appreciate your show. Appreciate you, man. Go ahead. Uh, actually, I was not. I was surprised about the score. I had no idea that that game was gonna turn out to be a way Did I called the game? Um, all the way into the playoffs. Actually, I'm about four going into the playoffs, I said. Said. That it was gonna be Tampa Bay against the Kansas City Chiefs. Um I expected Tampa Bay to win, but I definitely did not expect the defense to play the way it did. And they did not let their foot off that pedal and I'm Tampa Bay, and you're playing a team like Kansas City who can score and they can score quick. And the defense doing what they were doing. I'm watching this game and I'm I'm constantly saying you cannot let these guys score and the score and they score quick. You gotta put the defense on. You gotta put pressure on my homes. And what I saw last night was just was just unbelievable on both sides of the ball. And now they handle them. They handled them quickly. That's a no doubt about it. And I don't think that Kansas City was expecting that. I don't know if they thought they were just gonna come in there run all over this team, but that defense That defense is the last three. What 34 weeks Defense's has been playing lights out. They played the best. Game of the year the other night and they came out champions and I'll be honest. I have hated. I have never rooted for Tom Brady and any Super Bowl period. I have actually lost a couple $100 rooting against him. This was the only Super Bowl that actually rooted for Tom Brady win because I kind of wanted to send a rose. He leaves New England. Well, let me try. Let me tell you this structure being I have a couple of the callers. I want to get him before we hit the brake. You're not the only one. You are not. The only one is a lot of people that, uh Aren't necessarily running around waving Tom Brady pom poms Edward from Alabama going ahead quickly. Well last night for one thing to me, I mean, I was shot What I saw or what I listen to you actually. Every officer Lyman for all these great quarterback, they need to find out who the main staff since Alana's or put him in the Hall of Fame because last night proved without a line. You ain't nothing. This fax. Thank you, Edward. From coal from Alabama. I love it straight to the 0.7 from California. You are C B s Sports Radio Jr. I'm great. Go ahead. How weird How you feel about this game? Were you surprised that what's a place? I'm very I'm just surprised that, like Casey didn't write my boy. It seems like they did have that when you did. Majors went away from it. I mean, I understand it was down, but it was having Success online, and they weren't doing as much as I thought we should have done because of how far the safeties and the other corners were playing off if they should have ran about to me. I'm surprised that case he didn't make a big adjustment. Now I see Why that, uh, let's just think often too coordinated coordinator didn't get a take. Maybe that's the reason why That Zbig stretch. You have one. You have one bad game. The team has one bad game, and you know, I don't. That's the reason why Eric, the enemy doesn't have a head coaching job. That's That's a big stretch that is, ah Kareem Abdul Jabbar, like lifting his arms up. That's how big of a stretch that is. Kaiser's calling up from Houston, Kaiser you on CBS Sports radio. Hey, What's up, man? So really quickly. I want to say this and it might make you mad, But I think that we'll Kaiser. Wait a minute. Let me ask you a question. Why the hell would I be mad about anything? I'm not just saying that because based on what I hear about you every night, so I listened to every night when I'm going to work. Well, let's back up again. Kyser. Based on what you hear about me, what would you hear about me? I'm speaking directly to you. No, no, no. I mean, like, not about you, but I listen to you every day, So I hear your opinions and everything. So when have I ever been mad? I'm a happy person. Kaiser people people have called me up here. And I've said Hey, you know, maybe, like one out of let's say 1000. Someone says, Hey, Jr. You suck concert. How do you think that makes me feel? Nothing. You don't care because you have other listeners want to listen to you Sleep well at night, and I'm not gonna get mad at anything. Tell me I saw Keyser Go ahead. Okay, So the Tom Brady thing like I'm a Tom Brady hater. Okay, just for the fact that Yeah, good. I know that. He's good, but I've never liked them on the Houston Texans. So you know, I'm not gonna like him, especially if you're a Houston Texans. Um And honestly, I don't credit him from yesterday's game because of the fact that Tampa Bay's defense deserves all the credit. Yes, he did have three touchdowns. I understand that. What Tom Brady does that on the usual basis, nothing to be proud of. Now, let's put this situation if my homes would have had his five touchdown, right? That would've never happened. But of course, why did he not have it? Because temporary gave him a really big hard time last night on, so I just wanted to say that and I also wanted to say really quickly that My home. And these guys and Kelsey, you get what you get for messing with Houston last year. Okay, well, cause it well, Kyser you did you did everything except for tell me that I suck what happened in that part? But you don't talk. You're amazing. You got all the energy out here, man. I'm always listening to you. You're not as good as marked Vandermeer. But hey, I like what you got going on. And I like the energy, man. Keep doing what you're doing. I'm gonna take this week. There we go. Thank you, Consul for calling up from Houston. I was I was waiting on it. Was waiting on it. But that was awful. What she said it and make me mad. It was just dumb. Yeah. Tom Brady. I don't I don't think he was the MVP last night. I think it was the defense but to say that he didn't contribute. They wouldn't have been in this spot. If it was not for Tom Brady. Let's let's see how Jamis Winston feels. I don't know how Jamie's Winston feels He probably is like, Oh, well, look. Don't feel too bad. Let's see if he's even starting for the Saints next year. Let's see where he is. But to say that Tom Brady didn't contribute. Laughable. Tampa Bay would still be in the toilet watching from home of Tom Brady didn't show up. And speaking of Tom Brady, when we come back, we're gonna have that conversation is see the greatest of all time. I'll tell you what the hell I think you're listening to the chair.

"You work for me and people take that to a vast extreme and forget. Hey, There's some ethics that can be involved that these are human beings that you're making an agreement with not just a piece of paper. So when Brett Farms says, Oh, well back in my day. Or when Brett Farve says something like, Oh, they're making too much money to have an opinion. But He sounds ridiculous. He sounds out of touch, and that's exactly what he is. He sounds like he's been. I don't know, mowing too much grass or maybe inhaling the fumes. I have no idea. But Brett Farve should actually as Sean wants INS agent said he should probably take a look in the mirror. Because David Moloch Genna, who represents Shawn Watson amongst many other star athletes in the NFL, he said Brett should probably stop throwing stones from that glass house that he's sitting in. You don't recall. There was that point in time, you know when Aaron Rogers was drafted, and Brett Farve didn't know whether he wanted to retire, we'll stick around or leave. And then he pretty much said Hey, Okay, Trade me to the Jets. You don't want me back. Trade me to the Jets. There was that other time where Brett Farve basically pitched a fit after the 2000 and seven draft on said Oh, well, you guys, you need to trade me. You didn't go after Moss. Get me out of here. When the hell was Brett Farve, then Brett Farve, who was basically sitting in the middle. He had a 10 year contract. The $100 million Where was that? Where was the thoughts and the outrage? Then where was the idea of Make too much money. Have an opinion. So if you want to look at anything here Is that Brett Farve as David Muller get a said about his client to Shawn Watson that Brett far He's a hypocrite. When it comes to this conversation when it comes to what's being said he is a hypocrite. This is nothing new And it's this extends past the NFL. This extends past the N ba. This extends past sports when you are good at what you do. You start to have leverage when you are a star and the ecosystem of what you do and things start revolving around you. You have Leverage. John Elway had leverage. I ain't going to no Baltimore Colts, I will go swing a bat. Kareem Abdul Jabbar. I don't want to be here in the woods. Send me to LA LA land. Eli Manning. His family. Him and his father. No. The Chargers ain't for me. And so no one surprised. Well, maybe to some people surprised he had a better career playing in New York. One guy might have numbers and stats. The other guy walked away with two rings. Helped contribute to them. This isn't any avenue in life. So Brett Farm. Shut up. Please. I understand, But farm has a whole of fame standing in the NFL in the world of sports. What he says. I guess it can have value. There will be interest in things that he has to say. But that does not mean that what he says makes sense. When the Bulls down So what he had to say about this, John Watson. Well, we make too much money to have an opinion. That just sounds like a slavery in 2021. Brett Farve does sound like a hypocrite. As Dave Miller gotta said, and Brett Farve should shut the hell up. You're listening to the J. R sport re show right here on CBS Sports Radio. I want to take a break. Get to your calls 855 to 1 to four. CBS. What do you think about what Brett Farm had to say about the Shawn Watson?

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. Reporter joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters, and this is the Hollywood

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

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

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.

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.

He ain't going any I actually thought it was I know you're supposed to run weather, you know, or not. I actually thought it was faulted and you look like. Bell, usually it's found by the time time guy picks it up which you're going to run three feet. I mean it's like, but the fact was you've done it the day before, also that would, but the bigger problem to me wasn't just that it's how it was the blowback on. Did you bench him? Do you going to do this? I mean this guy has made already one hundred and nine hundred fifty million in baseball. He's got another hundred guaranteed Mike questions, a bigger question. How do you deal discipline? You know with a guy was making two hundred million dollars. I mean today's society, how do you do that? I think it's a real tough thing for today's managers owners. I mean, the Mets of dug themselves as whole, by the way, always it goes back to me with ownership. I mean you Mitch you're talking about the Tigers. When Elliott's died things changed the he didn't care. He wanted to spend money he'd win for Steinbrenner things change. When you have the owner spending money as the Houston owner would spend money now things change. And by the way, midst to your Bob to your point earlier, but transferring a big time pitchers. This. Trading deadline. Look for mad bum, and possibly Shaer's her both to be moved so that changed. That changes the paradigm. I'll say this. Okay. The, the Mets in recent years through a bloody fortunate David Wright. How did that work out? And they've now throwing a bloody fortunate a guy who hit them into the World Series in two thousand fifteen Yowen assessment is, and how that, how did that work out? Okay. So it the they lavished huge contracts ended up with the return that, you know, the rights out of baseball and Cessna's going to be out of baseball suit. Now. Okay, say the greatest basketball player of all time is Michael Jordan. It's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and it's not even clear. How can you say that? Michael has six titles sodas Kareem onto different teams. Michael was a five time MVP Corinne was six onto different teams. Oh, did I mention that to this day thirty years after his retirement, Kareem is still the all time NBA scoring leader third in rebounds, third and block shots? And the creator of the most devastating weapon in the history of basketball, the skyhook. But wait, there's more. That's just Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Now, let's talk Lew Alcindor the greatest college basketball player of all time. Probably the greatest high school basketball player of all time and someone. Unlike other athletes who stuck his neck out, big time, boycotting the nineteen sixty eight Olympics fighting for civil rights alongside Ali, Bill, Russell, Jim Brown. Sorry not sorry, Kareem. Abdul-jabbar was not only a better basketball player than MG. He's a more important one. And you know what else Robert? I'll tell you, you know, how many titles Magic Johnson one without Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and his basketball team zero. We aren't even at Memorial Day yet and Mike trout. The best player in baseball and the best all around players. Since Willie Mays already ten games out of first place. Trout is only play three postseason games in his career and hit one postseason home run. That's it, it would be like if the Bronx had only seen the playoffs one time at this stage of his career, even playing a vastly different sport. Trout already has eleven home runs this season. Recently got to twenty two hundred fifty home runs at warp speed as an opium, of course of one point zero three four..

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

"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?
