Interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

"The game, the structure, the style of the game that you played back to the basket center right trying to get high percentage shots closer to the basket that game has been completely forgotten, and there's very few. There's nobody who plays the center position the way you did with the back to the basket and it's like try to get the highest value shots the furthest away. But three pointers as much as you can does this style interest you disinterested you look down on it. You say you don't know how to play the game properly. Well, you know there, there are different theories about how to play the game but I think getting high percentage shots really makes a lot of sense, but it also has to dovetail with your defensive strategy also. So a great team like the Bill Russell. F- Celtics. Bill was able to to stymie any shots around the hoop and. His team. Would run and get high percentage shots down down court, and that was a winning strategy era. I mean, nobody's playing center. The way you did that is totally gone now. I think. So but that doesn't mean that someone cat had that type of skill and still come in effect the game. In a meaningful way, we talked earlier today. One of the things you said, the eighty five finals against the Celtics was one of your most important moments as a player. One of your crowning moments as a player you were the. MVP that year you guys won the Lakers one but you had to go through the Memorial Day massacre where you guys got crushed by like forty points a game over in the middle of third order and a down moment and I lived in Boston at that moment, it looked like are going to go on to destroy them. How did you come back to win and why do you think of that as one of your crowning moments as a player that series? Well I think that? What happened to me personally in that series was. Once, we made it into the finals I kind of relaxed. and. So I went into that first game thinking that. The worst is over and you know the the worst was yet to happen. So. It kind of woke me up and made me realize that I had to kick my game up a couple of levels in order to. Finish off what we started out to do because we lost. In eighty four to the Celtics and Gabe a game away. And that ended up being the the crucial game. How could you go into? A series against the Celtics who had Larry Bird who series plate you know clearly one of the great players of that time how you Gonna Like Oh, we got this. No. I didn't think that we got this but for me personally, I figured I've done my job where we're in the finals. Things. Think things will be alright and they work. One. Of the one of the chapters, one of the parts of the book that I really thought was really interesting. You talk about athletes and what they must do with how they have role models at the happy aware that they are role models and you say we can't pretend athletes are influencing our children's thinking and behavior. So we must demand higher standards from them like it or not college and Professional Sports. Machines are turning them into role models, and if they aren't willing to accept that responsibility as part of the contract, then they should seek another profession. Strong position. A little bit about why you feel that way when you went through that life right superstar High School Athlete College, Athlete, and you know the way that superstar athletes from a teen age are coddled. They are given you know love for their athletics points for their character. Society is not training them to be role models, but then they become big college players big prosed and we expect them to be role models. Are they even ready for that? I don't know you know for me. Being a black American and in the era that I grew up in all black. realized. That They would be judged by the actions of. Any problem. Black Person. And so. That burden. Was something that that you assumed. Soon, as you've got to do anything in a in a prominent fashion, you assume that burden because you knew that. All black people would be. Judged on whatever it was that you did and he's screwed up A. Set, the race. I mean that's absolutely right and you talk about that I came to realize that the lew alcindor that for the younger folk that was his name forty, fifty years ago the lew alcindor everyone was cheering. Was it really the person they wanted to be they wanted me to be the clean cut example of racial equality the poster boy for anybody from any background regardless of race religion or economic standing could become an American success story to them. I was living proof that racism was a mythological beast like Jack. Elope when when the audience is feeling like that right I assume the media is part of it. How do you? How do you rebel against that? Well. You just have to show them that they're wrong and. That that is not the case, there's a whole lot that has to be done. I into earlier. Right after Dr King was assassinated, I was involved in a demonstration on UCLA's campus and people. Would just standing there. and. It was a silent. stood. There for an hour in silence and some of US had signs and a number of times people came up to me and said, you're getting the opportunity to play in the NBA. What do you demonstrating for and they did not understand how these two things did not relate to each other at all the fact that I, I was getting opportunity to play in the NBA did not mean that what happened to Dr King was a tragedy and a crime and the. Thing to get across to people and the you know I, it's taken awhile you

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

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.

Cream, you've pointed out that the corona virus has exposed the slimy underbelly of institutional racism. Let's first talk about jobs and black workers. The unemployment rate for black workers is consistently higher, and some economists have pointed out that many black workers suffer from a first fired last hired phenomenon. How much of that is a factor in fueling protests? I think good. The nature of the jobs that most black Americans have are. Borderline Steady jobs? A lot of them are subject to the whims of the economy and. It's not steady employment and You find people that go on and off of unemployment. From totally different landscapes to the black movable. Bennett is rest of the country. HOW PREVALENT IS RACISM IN AMERICA'S WORKPLACES? And how much does that impact income inequality? Will I think? It starts with the education system. Good does not work in the black community for a number of reasons, and then you have undereducated of black Americans trying to get jobs in an economy that is increasingly high tech, so the jobs that the. Black records tend to get getting tend to be a less. Glamorous pay lasts not much teacher and. That is consistent tractor in you know. The Scottish the blacks economically in our country.

I'm reading about the Lakers and they say one expect might happen. boogie, cousins I wait a second. I forgot about this, not only on the roster, but they said even if he doesn't play because it has been about a year since injury is even if he doesn't play this, his voice being there with no fans, just being benched presence because he you notice. He went to a lot of leg as you with the more games at Jack Nicholson. He wasn't like. Oh. I'm hurting play this year. You'll have a good time I'll check in with the training staff every once in a while. He was really he was really with this team the entire year so do think there's any chance we.

They've got a lot of bigs that they'd been playing minutes for the Y. and Javale. McGee in AD so I. Just Hope Boogie get healthy and get paid. He might end up being a piston ones. He's technically not on the Lakers right now, but they are talking about expanding rosters because of the potential of sickness or injury, so that can leave him some room to get back in there. I just want to get that championship getting last year. Around all star break last year. Here's like Oh. We coast into this one is.

We've spent hours arguing about who the MVP is Yasser, Lebron. Won't go back to that tired argument now, but my question is usually a regular season. Vote Right, so wait, so you're trying to tell me that. They'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA get a ballot between the regular season after eight games are over, and then the play offs and you're GonNa. Vote then, or are you going to watch the playoffs? Play out, and then they're gonNA. Give you a ballot as a voter.

It's now you're listening. But like. When do we get the ballot windy? You vote as a voter. If to me, y'all have the valid now. We consider everything else the plows. Are already. It's like. A secret societies like they already emailed me may show out healthy Masur. The family was good. and. They. Let me know that. We will be voting in. We're going to take into account. The Games just been play in the potential eight more games will be played in come up with Gregg Emit in. That will finalise regular season the wars. Interesting well. that was a couple of things that I want to hear what you S. Is One more thing. That's very important that we need to discuss.

"Human beings, but also in industry. That's a long way away and not to make anyone discouraged, but. Other than the NBA NFL. Probably Tiger Woods as Alireza Golf Denzil Will Smith as outliers. As actors. For the most part any industry that I think of. Whites, not only own it, but they make the most money in it. Has Not changed overnight. So what I hope happens in the industry of sports and business, you get more diversity in power, and when that starts to happen, it sprinkles itself out via company via your team via power structure, and just having diversity in the room. And just? Having the best candidates Gin -tunities elevates everyone. It makes us a better society and makes. Getting to our goals a lot more achievable, but that that's a long way away Jacoby. Here's what I also say. They're going to be a lot of people to stand with us right now because it's a trend in topic. But I can't act like we did here before. People are forced to watch this revolution television because we're quarantine. And Like the last dance we want we want A. we're watching. The TV and we're glued to what's happening. I WANNA. See some reforms loss change via policemen policing. Like. It's a disgrace when I'm looking at video of Buffalo in. We've militarized police so much. They walking down the street and a push the elderly man now. He hits his head on, the, cement. They keep walking. These bleeding. Just hit his head. He's bleeding from his head. Which is which is extremely dangerous. Right and then he's. Immediately bleeding from the ear and police not only did that. They disregarded him in walked around him and stepped over him. He was like a tree branch. When he weaned from his head. It's and that's not the only video we've all seen all their videos of what's going a fire or a reprimand. Whatever two of them? All fifty seven of them walk past them and didn't give a me and then the other fifty seven. Oh. Whatever decided they're upset. Those two got reprimanded, so they quit. The one. It's absolutely well. Night. Lost Corentin let me start with a list. Number forty five our commander in tweets. He lost a corn. T FORTY MILLION PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED. We Dylan the corona virus. We deal with a social uprising in a political cycle. He loss it'll. Number to police. The police. And the images that we're seeing of innocent people. Being? Jeff treated less than inhumane. And I know I'm not advocating violence against anyone. Including police I'm not advocating rioting or I'm not advocating looting. What I want people to understand when you've been oppressed, there's a level of psyche that goes on in your mind, and you know we tell ourselves. We walk past CVS. We walk past one whole foods that you guys are celebrating that. You finally gave us one in the neighborhood. We thinking. We don't own this block. We're just renting. If I got a chance to make it out. I'll make it out as fast as possible. That's the dream. That's the goal so like burning down a prison yard. We don't own it. We feel in slave. We feel entrapped. We don't have a voice. So maybe if we do this, you listen to us. So. This is a watershed moment in our country I wanNA. See how fair. I want to see some real change. All these statements that came out every corporation came out with their statement over black with white letters in what I. Do is I'm just I'm just keeping tabs because let's see where the accountability is in two years three years. You know it's like Ev. Let's check back on those. Let's let's keep a list of every corporation said how much they support black people, and how much they support diversity in the workplace in how much black lives matter I want to check back on them in a year two years three years to see if any changes happen on that level I I'm. I'M! About to pivot about to pivot, because we're GONNA. Talk about some sports because there is some sports that we didn't get to address on the show that I need to talk to you about. Because there's something that's happened. Recently in the past two weeks, UFC fighters became rappers. There's retire all the damn time so now. We got John Bone John He wants out of his contract. He's not getting money WHOA. Hey Mazda don wants out of his country. CONTRACT HENRY SUHARTO WINS BELT NED! He's retiring. He's in his prime and now we got Conor McGregor because they haven't had like three weeks road. People aren't talking about conor. McGregor, so he up and retired now Jalen. I don't believe any of this. I'll leave all those fighters that I mentioned are just saying Hey Dana. Get me an array against someone that I wanNA fight and give me some money. That's basically what I'm hearing. Do you feel any differently? All on those Maswadeh guy and I. Don't hear him talking about retirement. He wants out of his contract. He'd because the fight smart right. He wasn't getting of money. That's what he's doing even say. You want out because he felt like. I'm putting for the sport like you said he came on our show like there have been some people feel like chicken out of the sport. He felt like Tinto's down. Anyone get paid i. want to see him and connor fight. Seems to be in my because condoms complaining about gauge in. And Habib being pushed until September because he just Kinda just wants to be in the news. He wants me does he wants to have a clear path of what's happening him? He knows he's a big draw, but. I mean that fight against cowboy was impressive, but again he has no chance to be. It'd be none so I. don't even know why he would want those problems, but I would love to see. Mazda fight, I would absolutely love to see him as kind of fight. Any, Mazda dogfight because we're going to celebrate with a math. And I can't reproduce, but if I didn't have my hair, our love his scrape. So jail. Another quick sports thing I want to talk to you about is I didn't consider this reading ESPN's going to thing about the bubble in the twenty two teams..

"George Floyd. Colin really suffered for for what he did, but now people see that he was talking about something. That was absolutely ballot and. We are, we're we're taking it premiere and the people now appreciating his Faez, I think those things really make it clear that the black athletes have something saying something to contribute to the grants of Freedom Justice and equality for all Americans. and. It almost seems like Carmen a lot of ways for black people that the need kill Jewish. Floyd almost mirror and was symbolic of the picture of Colin Kaepernick actually taken a knee. During a during peaceful protests before football game. As somebody that's been a social warrior. Your entire life, and this was a young man over my shoulder apart of the movement. How do you feel now seeing so many different people, colors and backgrounds, actually protesting in marching alongside? Does that look much different than it did back in the sixties? Does Jalen because. In the sixties. People didn't understand as completely. How black people are defined by stereotypes, they'd had nothing to do with who they really are. All those stereotypes that. Word splits to typical of of the black experience. Really had no validity. I am I'm becky about what Reverend Sharpton? Sharpton said yesterday that. We can learn just like any other students could learn. But we couldn't. Deal with the underfunded schools because why America had their knee on. And, we could have done jobs.

"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.

New charges in George Floyd's death as protests sweep nation

"Minnesota's attorney, general announced new charges today in the death of George Floyd tonight I spoke to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. He says his office will prepare. Organize and put on the best case possible, but quote at the end of the day. It's really in the hands of the. The jury joining me now is NBA Legend Kareem? Abdul Jabbar so much for being with us as I said, you wrote a piece in the La Times a couple of days ago that he just thought was was really done and I just wanted to talk to you about it. I of although I'd like to get your thoughts on the news that the other three officers involved in Mr Floyd's death his murder had been charged, and that officer a former officer Chauve in. His charges have been upgraded to second degree murder. Is that a step toward justice in your mind? I think it's certainly a step toward justice, and I think that Just the fact that the governor and the mayor really acted quickly and decisively and set a tone for how we should react to this horrible incident. It's so interesting to me how? Different people in this country seat react differently to nunnelee. What are you know what they saw in the video of the killing of Mr Floor? But also what they see in the videos we're showing right now. Protests on people protesting on the streets. You wrote in the La Times and it's a bit of a long paragraph, but I just think it's a really important one that I want to read read. It's you wrote. Yes, protests, oftener uses excuse for some to take advantage just as when fans celebrating the Hometown Sports Team Championship. Burn cars and. And destroy storefronts. I don't WanNa. See stores, looted, or even buildings burn, but African Americans have been living in a burning building for many years. Choking on the smoke is the flames burn closer and closer racism in America's like dust in the air seems invisible. Even if you're choking on it until you let the sun in, then you see, it's everywhere as long as we keep shining light, we have a chance to cleaning it wherever it lands, but we have to stay vigilant because it's always still in the air. Can you talk about how? Different people see different protests, and and why you wrote that paragraph. Well I wrote that paragraph because I I tried to. Set up an analogy that that people could understand you know I. There's another way of describing it. It's like you know. The United States is this wonderful bus. With great seats in the front of the bus, but as you go further to the back of the bus, two seats get worse and the fumes from the exhaust leaking and. Really Record People's Health and Their lives. But the people at the front of the bus. They have no complaints. I it's. It's kind of like that When I describe the the dust in the air and then just accumulates in the lives of black Americans and I. It just eliminates all of the mechanics of democracy. Democracy doesn't work for us we are last fired her. Last hired first fired We have a different. Set of expectations from the criminal justice system. So many ways of of American life discriminating against Black Americans. And finally I think we. We've come to a moment of clarity here where. It can result in such a horrible incident that we saw with with Mr Floyd's death. President Obama spoke today about Y- and I I'm paraphrasing because his words are former eloquent than than my memory of them but. Essentially channeling the energy that we are seeing this extraordinary outpouring and sustained outpouring to real. Systematic change and I'm wondering how you think that is possible, I mean. Do you think it's possible you know? Marching in the streets is extraordinarily powerful. Where does it lead to? That makes real change. I think as possible, Anderson. If it leads to forming a political will within our country to do something, something has to be done. It's It's not enough to say that was terrible. And my thoughts and prayers are with you that that that's not getting anything done we have to. We have to change the circumstances. It's been almost thirty years since Rodney, King Incident D. did you see that as a routine traffic stop? If any white American had. An a relative, get drunk and get stopped by the police in relative beaten. Those people would be up in arms. But Yet Thirty s pass. Nothing has changed. There's been a lot more other dead black Americans and guide really for no good reasons misdemeanors. Eric Garner died because he was selling. Cigarettes illegally You know these are triple things to take someone's life over and we have to. We have to get to the point where we have to do something about that and I think. This will cause the political will maybe to to to grow, and maybe we can get something done. I mean. Yeah, you talk about or Garner Mr? Floyd was accused, not convicted for anything accused. Passing Counterfeit Twenty Dollar Bill and and the man is dead. When you. What was that about the passing a bad bill? You get killed for that? That's horrific.

Floyd family attorney says charge against officer should be upgraded to first-degree murder

"Well and I've been talking for days now about the the tragedy of the death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer who held him down for eight minutes shot by the neck and he eventually lost his life and that man has now been charged with third degree murder second degree voluntary met involuntary manslaughter people are looking for more even possibly first degree murder I was listening to the the Florida attorney today talking on national television and discussing a number of things concerning the case and how they believe there may be some well premeditated aspects of this case but the reason I'm bringing it up on the sports show we'll get to that in a moment I have Greg dial is who is on the disk gets to the pitch for news line who happens to be an attorney at law and I I think it's very important that we don't lose sight of the story in Pittsburgh last night tragically we felt some of that violence that continues to spread from coast to coast am tomorrow night in my program I'll be talking in pretty much opening the phone lines between eight and ten and giving you a chance to voice your opinion and we all will on KDKA radio over the next couple of days but the thing that I really took away without watching Margaret o'brien talked to the mayor of Atlanta of course as I mentioned talk to the attorney for the Floyd family talking to other people like Melvin Carter the mayor of J. Paul Minneapolis if this is a story that is polarize our nation especially in the midst of this pandemic but when you think of calling Capranica those are people of color in sports and what they have done to stand up for the black race and minorities many NBA players were actually involved in these protests some of them returned to Atlanta where they grew up to to speak their mind and be a part of a peaceful protest that obviously turn very the ugly with a lot of violence there's been discussion of anarchist a white supremacist if you will who have rolled into various towns to ignite these fires literally and these horrible Ryan said for the most part many people but we're going to be peaceful protest so Greg the reason I want to talk to you as far as athletes this is nothing new I've seen Jim Brown and many others Kareem Abdul Jabbar Mohammed Ali obviously spent most of his life fighting for civil rights this is just such a very bad time in our country's history my question to you is when you think about what happened to Mr Floyd and there are many great law enforcement officers out there but one thing is for sure when you're dealing with many athletes many of them of the black race this is a concern into something has been a part of the sports world is a part of all of our lives and I think that we owe at least a segment or two because of your legal background and your sports background to talk about it and again no one ever thought that this would be the story that would kind of replace this pandemic even in the midst of the pandemic and it's a shame that it's come down to this but there's no way that you go anywhere right now in this region or any television station running radio station or a newspaper you pick up that this is not the story good morning good morning robin unfortunately it's really not a good morning I I wish there were different things to talk about generally enough for you guys you know I usually come in with some happy new year for you in the mornings but it it just feels like there's something gone wrong that the world is off its axis or something but but there's just seems to be more more bad news each and every day but we'll get through this we we are hearty people and we'll figure it out and and we actually you man elements need to be able to to figure out ways to pass these things out but it's very difficult and it's hard for for me a white man to to be able to express a what's the the people of all colors are experiencing in our country right now because I I'm not listed but but I do have your clients and friends said no we can't have a conversation about and try to figure out ways whereas the people that we can go forward and and you know put all these differences a lady somehow some way but but boy it's really just off for a sound doesn't seem like there's any kind of logical or reasonable way to proceed because the patch things up you know as I was watching the face the nation program I must tell you I really was torn whether or not I should bring it up again after spending the majority of the last couple of days talking about it and will over the next couple of days despite us having a June second primary it will be the topic of conversation during the open talk portion of my programs right through Wednesday night in some of the folks that I have scheduled for political purposes are perfect because a lot of folks are tying the political aspect as far as from local government to state government a national government it's all leading up to this June second primary so the timing is there but I just wish it was something else that I was discussing but I said to myself you know listen I've always been one to try to take the high road and have a peaceful outlook and not really try to stir the pot but this is something there's really struck me personally because of watching that video and obviously having many people in law enforcement of color and yes of course many of them are dear friends I understand that they too are frustrated because of what happened in Minnesota with this police officer all I can say is this growing up even in the turbulent civil rights era of the sixties the one thing that always brought people together especially on the playground in the neighborhood was sports and then I saw some of my sports heroes like Muhammad Ali my all time favorite also Jim Brown in there another scream of dole Jabbar who always stood up and spoke out but I must tell you it's just so sad to see something that is happening of this nature in twenty twenty that I experienced during the height of the civil rights watching the nightly news with Walter Cronkite seeing the black and white film footage of the fire hoses turned on young black teenagers attack dogs police dogs if you will that were put into that mode because that was the command they were given it's just hard to believe that we have evolved so many decades later we're sports's evolve where in the world now without sports we lost a hundred thousand people in this country and counting when it comes to the pandemic and this is on the front page and no matter how you look at it is just flat out sad to think we have not come that very far since Martin Luther king walked this earth and lost his life because of his fight for civil rights it almost makes you feel like robbery we haven't come anywhere you know we we're we're right back to where we started in the sixties in it is so sad to to have to be in a situation where where in hello to our address like that the only way they can can express those the end it is these were mostly protests that were peaceful in and well deserved and then they turn crazy because of outside sources apparently and no one knows for sure but it seems that that especially in Pittsburgh this was not something that was driven by the peaceful protests that started out in that that's bigger shame of it all in and I'm hoping that there is some way to find these people that came in there that that tried to incite the violence to to get to a point where we can catch them and get them off the street there's no place in our world you know Greg and I don't know if it's because when we were raised in one of the things that I've been stressing to my audience and I have been through it all I've been through rose Jonny Gammage obviously going back to the nineties up with Rodney king I have been on the radio talking about all of these things and how tragic they are and hoping that they would stop just like the school shootings that I go back to nineteen ninety nine covering the Columbine case the thing that I have come to believe it is all about what you can do teaching your children about how this is not how you act do not treat people of a different color race nationality religious belief other than how you want to be treated that's the way you and I were both raised in I'm not looking for us to get a gold star or a Pat on the back but you have to know is I know the way we grew up weather was on the basketball court or the classroom or just spending it time at home eating something that our parents prepare force and you looked across the table many times that person was black and I never looked at it any other way than just that a friend of mine enjoying a moment whether it be in school in that classroom or on that basketball court or on that of field of athletics and I think we become so isolated not just because of this pandemic but the world that we live in today that people have lost sight as far as what they need to do and how they should be raising their children and more importantly something that I've always thought was healthy a healthy mix of people from all walks of life we we need to get back to that if we want to survive this and move forward and be a healthier nation not so much for you and I but for your daughters and my children and generations to come yeah I can't agree with you more there has to be a way to figure this out there investors are seemingly every time an issue or an engine that comes up like this we often dialogue began everybody just kind of goes back to their quarters in as if it were a boxing ring what okay yeah we had these conversations but nothing gets accomplished you're nothing gets fixed and then you have another incident where were some law enforcement in the Milan in an attack on law enforcement you know they they're there for the better part of on everyone and probably more than ninety nine point nine percent all law enforcement officers in doing the right thing but the house in in increments and issue like this that seemingly are happening in the weekly Robinson it is these issues come up or that they go along if someone acts in a way

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.

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.

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.

"Good morning everybody in Fellas. I guess if nothing else during our quarantine are artists in residencies. We've discovered that we're GONNA get a horse game going on out of all of this if nothing else. That's a win for us. Absolutely I'm going to get to wears your work I I. I'm not going to a book by its cover So I'm going to have respect for you. Travelers and your game and I'm just GonNa say it'd Be Fun. It hold on. What's my cover wrought-iron White Guy? That's what he meant to say. Yeah no no no no no no he made it all like I would have been okay with white guy shooting jumpers but the rotund man. That's a body blow. Well you know I'm GonNa shoot deep know you you you know you you good though you know you you real good talking. I already know you try to talk him on his game. I know what you're trying to do talk. You'RE GONNA talk yourself into being good at horse. That's trying to scare somebody on the court you do it. That's the reason that the televised horse wasn't great. Because they weren't able to talk to each other. That's part exactly. It's all about the talk. I remember when this William Citizens are in the heyday. They've won matches before it even started playing their opponent. Look they're winning confidence swagger? I guess maybe you can get to Kravis Travis that way but me I. I'm not worried I'll start my all right. So we we. We were talking earlier. It is Kareem abdul-jabbar seventy third birthday. Today we spent a ton of time talking about Jordan and whether or not he's the goat that Kareem of course isn't the goat conversation is willing key. You mentioned that if you have asked my dad he would say that. Kareem was the greatest of all time as it turns out my dad played against Kareem abdul-jabbar when Korean was at UCLA. My Dad was a player at the University of Oregon. So joining us right now to talk about all of this is my dad Bob. Ross threat. People Hotline Good Morning. How are you good morning? How are you guys we good bob? Do we call you big Bob. Do we call you. Pop recall Mr Rogers. Prefer gramps man do that to you so tell me. Tell me a little store. Give me a Kareem abdul-jabbar story because these knuckleheads around here. Obviously every now and then they forget that the cat might be the greatest basketball player to live but for some reason people forget about him. Yeah that's true he He was phenomenal And I grew up in awe. Am I went to a little teeny high school? In Salem Oregon you know it was four hundred school and then had the good fortune to go to Oregon. And I just couldn't believe that it's time I was going to play against careening. Still and he. He was a sophomore. I was a freshman freshman in those days. Could not play Varsity basketball and when you came to practice the day before the game I literally snuck into Jim and hid in the rafters.

"kareem abdul jabbar" 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.

"Dick by town. What about science? He's become a skull sold. How? And they so you take the best of anybody certainly see listened subscribe for free of apple podcasts Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts. Hey, it's Howard Beck. And I've got ESPN's Rachel Nichols. On Bleacher reports the full forty eight there should be every penalty in the NBA there. So selectively enforced so forty eight now on the Bleacher report app, apple podcasts, and smart. Stern said a few days ago. It was that Colin Kaepernick, we're MBA player. He'd still be playing David Stern. Of course, also people quickly pointed out was one who find pretty hard. Jill rove for Nishikori above just voiding the national anthem many years ago, and then they reached an accord where he was there and standing, but I think praying instead of engaging. What do you think of David's comments and do these right? And would you think in the NBA no one's really challenged the rule as far as the anthem goes? I don't know if that's important or not the power to do a lot else. But I don't think that's important. The guys that want to do something haven't done anything illegal. You know, and people try to say that it's disrespectful are trying to change the subject what the guys protesting valid? So that's it for that conversation. So let's let's shift here little bit. You have made it very clear that you don't really care for the whole greatest of all time debate in the first place you, and I had the pleasure of chatting a little bit about this few weeks back about big men being overlooked in this discussion anyway, so Michael at the tech summit did a one on one with Michael wilbon. And it was interesting when when wilbon put this back to Michael again, and he says is good for the game that we have this discussion, we could all be worn out by it, and it is kind of preposterous, and as you, and I have discussed before the game has changed the of there's so much that is just so impossible to compare. But I liked Michael's response. Which was he says is it good means good for the game. He says, yes. Because people discussing debate in the game is good, right? Is it factual? No. That was the way he put it. Them about idea. Michael found good good good balance. There would he had to say, it's not factual. It can't be. The game. They're playing now is different from the game. I played in the seventy and eighty. Yeah. We took. Eighty five was probably our best team finally to Celtics and everything for the whole season. We took him in the nineties in terms of three point shots two thousand fifteen Golden State for the season shot over a thousand three point shots. That's a tenfold increase. I mean, the game has changed and people people on on factoring that in with their observations. You know, none of those guys that played in the fifties and sixties could shoot three point shots Elgin and Jerry West, and they weren't long shooters was different game was more physical. So I think people have to factor that in and stop that, you know, just to. Babe. Ruth home runs. We're not the same as Hank Aaron's than errands when the same as Barry Bonds, and there's nothing we can do about it. So you just have to understand what happened in talk about it like that. I like the way Bill Simmons. Ultimately, put it when I chatted with him about this for that same story, which was that we will almost need this to be in fifteen year increments. Ten to fifteen year increments. And you could say LeBron is the greatest of this time Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the greatest of his era. Michael was the greatest of his and we could just go from the list, and it's you can't compare them across. But you can you can have got pipping San all the stuff, and I saw will average fifty points. I still play that season. You know?.

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

"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?

"You're listening to comedy central. Please welcome Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much great reception. I understand for the ends of you. And we've the same heights. You all such a release on some man, author hall of fame athletes, presidential medal of freedom. When I it's almost like NBA all time leading scorer is number six on your resume lived, quite an accomplished. Like, are you just trying to win Lincoln is that what you're doing? No, I'm just go through life. And I try to find interesting and meaningful things to do. You know, you go through your whole life, and you have a career that's over when you're forty two. I'm bright seventy now, you know, what do you do with the rest of your life? So I'm glad I figured out. How to write a few books and say a few things that people might wanna hear and something that we could fair you definitely say a few things that people want to hear. I mean this. This book is is is a beautiful book because it's you telling the story of her life. But what I like about it is you you've set it out for younger readers, you know? So anyone from age of ten up can read it, and you truly have lived one of the more fascinating lives. I have ever read about everyone knows you from the will of sports, but a lot of people don't know what it was like to be a sportsman during your time. You talk in the book about having to change or one choosing to change your name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Why was that important for you? During the time that you did it. It was. Very important because black Americans head a whole situation imposed upon them. People were brought here from Africa. The names were changed, and they were forced into some very terrible terrible differ deprived circumstances. Slavery was not a great experience, and we came out very damaged and in order to repair we have to reassert our identities. So the fact that I believed in Christianity and model of my whole life. I decided I wanted to change my name to something that had to do with the type of monotheism that they practiced in Africa to degree, and I became interested in this Lomb and became Muslim. But the that was my thought process, I it wasn't me taking a stance against America. But it was a position of for myself for my own identity that I wanted to assume not something that was imposed on me. It's interesting that you say not something against America. But something for yourself because it feels like that's a conversation that we're experiencing once again with Colin Kaepernick, and it's an athlete in the spotlight saying, this is something that I'm trying to say for myself, and for my people in what we were experiencing and people are hearing it as no this is against America when you said these things, and when you stood up for black Americans was it similar to what people say today about NFL athletes, taking the knee. I it was the same exact thing they wanted to change the subject because they didn't like to talk about the fact that too many black Americans end up dead for no good reason at the hands of police, and they didn't want to talk about that issue because it's troubling. It means that there's something wrong with our with some of our police forces in the way, they're trained it cetera. So most people don't want to talk about that..

"He is Kareem Abdul Jabbar Kareem, the NBA season has started for you does LeBron James look right wearing purple and gold. Oh, absolutely. I think you know, the acquisition of LeBron is is a great. Achievement for the Laker franchise. He brings so much to table. Not just hoops to you know, he he's got a great civic consciousness, and it's gonna be good to having a mirror creams stay on that topic of civic consciousness. That's something that you brought is well here and not all athletes today embrace the role of of that type of leadership. Have you had any conversations with LeBron James and all about that or not specifically? But you know, from what I've observed over the past couple of years, he's got the right right approach to it. You know, what he's doing for that school in Akron his hometown you sending the kids to college. You know, someone that that feels that strongly about his community is always an asset Kareem in speaking about that it just reminded me you pip two years ago this week Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their fists at the Olympics in Mexico City. Your thoughts about what these guys did. And the impact it has had on American society. All those guys really a very serious challenge. They were absolutely singled out after they did that protest, and it was very difficult for them. But they felt that they had something to prove. And by taking that produce. They made people around the world understand what black Americans had to deal with training. You did not participate in the nineteen sixty eight Olympic Games. And obviously at the time you're one of the best basketball players in the world. Why not? Well, I just had been through some very traumatic experiences. Drew most foremost among them being the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. You know at that point. I didn't feel very patriotic very hard for for black Americans to feel good about America seen our our heroes. Shut down like that. And also the person who was the who who ran the US Olympic Committee a mistake every Brundige she's the one that agreed with Hitler that the Jewish athletes from America shouldn't participate in the Olympics that year, and there was no way that I was gonna go and participate under the auspices of that of that person Crema wasn't alive at the time. But how was that received by Americans when you decided to did not go to the Olympics in nineteen sixty eight in Mexico City. Well, people were pretty upset about the protests because the fact that black Americans we're using this opportunity to speak the truth about our experiences here. That seemed to annoy a lot of people who felt that we shouldn't be talking about that subject. Well, that's a very important subject for black Americans. When you're the victim of discrimination. And the fact that they had the courage to persist and not be intimidated that meant a lot to to all Americans. But especially black Americans. We are talking with them dairy Kareem Abdul Jabbar, all right here on NBC sports radio. I'm newest grudges hall of Famer class of nineteen ninety-five the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar collection is being offered for sale at golden auctions now through October twenty seventh Kareem you won a truckload of championship. Six of them in the NBA three national championships at UCLA, what can fans get it your auction. And and why are you doing I'm really happy to be working with the golden auctions? That's a golden auctions dot com. They're very professional. And you know, I I want to help the kids that I work with here at L. LA unified school district. So I have a foundation, and we send kids to school excuse me. We send kids to camp. So that they can learn about stem subjects that science technology, engineering and math. And I have to fund this. You know, I gotta get buses to go up there, and we've got to pay the teachers and it costs money to do that. So by selling off my collection. I will be able to use part of the proceeds to to fund my foundation and get these kids up to camp. And you know, I'm I'm very happy to do that. That's the best thing. I could be doing with these items, and that's golden options in the way spell golden, his G O L D, I N. Okay. So yeah, I in on golden Kareem Abdul-Jabbar when you were traded from Milwaukee to the Lakers you were brought to to win a championship. And that's kind of like LeBron James who, you know, people are expecting a championship. I remember when she kilo Neil came to LA. Now, it's working out there the expectations of championship. What is that? Like you went through it. Well, you know, many people it's a source of pride because the fact that people think that you can achieve that much. That's something that makes you kinda swell with pride. But it's also quite a challenge. But you know, as we know LeBron is is up to the challenge. It's not gonna be a problem for him to deliver. So I think the fans here in LA, we'll get a real treat and see a great player perform for their Lakers and hopefully to other players on her team will will rally around and we'll have a fun time in the playoffs. This year. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA's all time leading score the way you've seen the rules change. How do you think your game would translate today? Well, you know, I could I could have played in any era. You know, it's it's not it's not impossible for players from one area to go into another just different emphases in a game or different strategies that the various teams workout to win. But in order to do that you have to have the the right people in place, and I was one of those people that everybody thought could do it the right way Trini one a lot of championships three at UCLA six in the NBA of the championships that you one which one do you hold a little bit more special than the others? Would it be nine hundred eighty five winning the NBA championship? But on the Boston the Boston Garden on the parquet floor. Well, that certainly was a highlight of my professional career. And I think in college, you know, beating university of Houston, you know, after they had beat us in the astrodome. We we came back and played them in the NC two A tournament and beat them. Pretty good. I think that that was also very satisfied that one was a blowout. That was a blow out. It wasn't even close. Yeah. We we had something to prove. I read the book, you you have what about you and coach wooden and then later on you talked about just to so many great topics, but it was so much about the relationship you had with him in life, and that you all different two guys from different generations and coming together to understand and share ideas. And I just remembered reading about Muhammad Ali and coach wooden was against Muhammad Ali not going to the draft. And he was asking you questions, and you're educating him about your friend. Muhammad ali. Yeah. I did. I think especially after coach wooden saw what I had to deal with on a daily basis, you know, people using the N word, and you know, just the condescending way that you have to contend with the people's racist attitudes. And by seeing that up close, I think coach we got a better idea of what black Americans had to deal with. And I think his opinions changed cream. How did you deal with that? When you. See people in arenas, and we see today. People think because they purchase a ticket. They're allowed to say anything they want to the players. Yeah. You know, there's there's a lot of that going on. But for the most part the fans usually deal with us in a respectful way. Usually not a situation where it gets abusive. I have to say that most most fans are pretty considerate cream in your opinion, the run from the Golden State Warriors were watching right now is this a dynasty in your opinion. What they're doing. Well, I don't know about a dynasty in order to be a dynasty. You have to win a lotta times. But she's they've won three out the last four, right. Yes. So yeah, they they've they've definitely established themselves as one of the dominant NBA teams and that won't change cream. I appreciate your time. Good luck with the golden auction sale. The cream Abdul-Jabbar collections being offered for sale through. Golden arches through October twenty seven thank you so much for your help. And all the best. The captain Kareem Abdul-Jabbar six in be h championships. Nobody's one more MVP's in the NBA then cream up next here on the newest cracks show. There are serious issues with the chargers in Los Angeles the NFL's trying to dive into that and could the Seahawks be moving. If a Roger Goodell on that next on NBC sports radio show. Stay.
