I don't know that i've ever read a frivolous like black fiction. Book made me. Think too. When i just think stories that have non white leads or non straight leads. It's so much more interesting in things that you don't even like. Like i i saw beckett on that flakes with I always forget his name. And and maybe this is going into the hollywood nepotism.

It doesn't. He doesn't just get to his next destination. He's gonna get stopped a few times along. You going to stop this actively.

Only choose white man that they've been like bringing up through the ranks internally a hundred percent they were like. Oh let's pretend like we're already know already knew who they were going to probably bring in and you know i'd like her even had like they hadn't remedy i would've loved lear rubbery hosting jeopardy because she's so faith or like i was pretty stupid. I was very big on like or one of the former champions. I think what her about lavar is like when we think about these. Like kind of like mount rushmore of lake men. That taught us to be the kind bar. It's always like bob. Ross mr rogers alex direct but my thing is like people always forget to add lavar burton. 'cause i'm angry because that's my thing is like he not only just taught us to read.

This was a man that felt like he protected the citadel of factual information. And i think my thing was oh then. That next person is lavar. Burton like his entire thing has been.

I do want to say 'cause this researchers pulled for us and i think it is a fun thing to know but the one thousand nine hundred or massive for pg rated sports movies and sports movies in general and low key. Wish that this would like comeback in some way. I think that's why. I'm really excited for new legacy. Because i'm someone who likes the sandlots one of my favorite movies of all time. Cool runnings like is one of the greatest films ever made. Sometimes i can't even believe it. That actually happened that a jamaican bobsled team like when did the olympics. And like i wish movies like airbud and the big green and the mighty ducks in like a league of their own like all these films. It was just such a time for this. So it'll be interesting to see if like if a new legacy is successful if that will create like a new interest in in bringing like sports films back to the big screen in a big way. Like angels in the outfield. You're right avid limiting it to basketball. The nineties were pretty big for for basketball movies. Like you mentioned as mean you. Had you had i what i consider. The greatest movie of all time is white. Men can't jump from nineteen ninety-two Hoop dreams which got robbed as it was even nominated for best documentary when it was clearly the best documentary of that year. You have the arab there which people have blue chips. I that you can go back and watch chips. Speaking of athletes becoming actors that had shocked and penny in it right when they were entering the nba and that movie holds up so well in terms of how dirty college basketball is with nick. Nolte yeah yeah. Yeah yeah but you have to also mention. i'm kazan. right kazam. Yeah it and that was when shack was full. On like yeah. I'll take the paycheck. I'll do not do the role because he took steal. Somebody wrote about steel recently and it was actually really interesting is like a heartfelt little love letter. It's like steel is not a good movie but it's heart was in the right place and and they like kind broke down how it was really trying in earnest to give a black panther type moment to kids back in the ninety s. It just didn't have any of the tools and nobody involved in it. Had the skill set to achieve that that that was what it's ernest was and it was actually this really cute article so find that Somewhere for folks that are that are looking for it. Also when we do our next oscar episode mark. I think we just need to spend a good twenty minutes with you. Talk about why hoop dreams was. Because i just feel like oh gimme that soapbox i'll talk about mr gains and mr ag all day long and just how that was their moment and even it's one of my favorite posters of all time. It's just i just and it was so ahead of its time in the way that they are actually making this documentary and so e- kids go back and watch hoop dreams. What i will say that hoop dreams didn't accomplish nearly as well as space. Jam was as the great yogurt from outer space. Would say mike. Jen dies might indict wondering lucy in here because let's talk about our space jam swag that we still have to this day..

"kazam" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"These dudes were bad men. I even remember sneaking into blue chips the movie just to see those guys on the big screen. I've never actually been a magic fan but I sure did love those years until shack broke my heart and left for L. A. My question is was. This duo underrated. And do you have a particular basketball moment? That changed the way you think of the world and he said thanks Also for bringing some much needed nostalgia back during these trying times and he agreed with me like Michael when I said last week that Jordan wearing forty five during that season was super weird and he he went on to say it was. Obviously the reason the Bulls were knocked out of the playoffs that year. So I'm not sure we're going to go to the numerology explanation on why. Michael actually lost in the playoffs but Michael. I'm curious were you as big on shack and penny as our guys Steven from Canada for first off sneaking into blue chips is a great move that I can kind of relate to. I actually snuck into Kazan. Back in the day which was shacks great great movie about. I don't even remember him being a genie and remember there were cheeseburgers. The flute fell from the sky. Quality Quality Movie Kazam set the record for Academy Awards. I think he did like I think. WanNa say like twenty two. Nominations in seven wins. If I'm not mistaken all time records in both but anyway continue no yeah. I think you're onto something there. I would say that if we're just saying shack and penny. Are they underrated properly rated I think back to the early nineties magic thirty for thirty. That came out a little while back and they were getting compared to durant and Westbrook and hardened in that era of the Oklahoma City Thunder and that felt accurate to me. I mean they were young. They were exciting but at the end the day. They did not accomplish what we thought they could. So in in that form. They're kind of like their legacy is Kinda just tragic and that really sucks to say. But that's how they're remembered and I think that that is that's accurate that's how they should be remembered. They were capable of so much more in part because penny was capable of so much more injuries just kind of derailed his career later and then of course the split Split gives wound Wanda being underrated because of shacks split with Kobe Right. So it's like not even Shaq's highest profile divorce which leaves penny as like you know his second ex wife which okay you know tortured analogy there but you sort of get where. I'm going pennies. Real legacy to me has become the commercials the Nike commercials because those have held up so well tyra banks in those commercials formative experience for you know many viewers around the world. Yes we don't need to get into this but yes I I agree. I wasn't going to get into it. I was going to leave it there. Michael grown in your voice was slightly creepy. Little borderline creepy. But I think they're a little bit underrated but they did like. You're saying they didn't really accomplish that much. So they're gonNA wound up getting lost to history slightly One thing though I I want to mention one of my proudest moments of my life Michael and this is going back when I was probably in college. So right around the turn of the century which boy that's such an old man thing to say. Maybe I am this driver's Ed instructor but right around two thousand Penny Hardaway was doing some event at Venice Beach in California and I just happened to be there during the summer. I don't know exactly why. But he was walking away from the event and I don't exactly know what I said Michael but I made some sort of a wise crack it might have even been referenced. The Penny Hardaway commercials but my wife's crack made Penny Hardaway. Laugh and to me like outfit to that point in my life. That was my greatest achievement and I basically reminded my friends of that on almost a daily basis and I would always have them vouch for me to other people. Hey guys you remember when i Made Penny Hardaway Laugh. And they're like yeah we do you like. It was like three second exchange as he was walking by and he was just being kind but for assault. Five years there. Michael that was the that was the best thing I've ever done now. That's incredible and I mean that should probably go. I don't I'm not going to say that's the first line of your obituary but that's gotta fit there somewhere for. Its way up on the list. Stephen I really hope I impress you with that. Incredibly lame story alright. Nathan checks in for Melbourne Australia. He writes hey lads longtime listener first-time emailer. I'm really big and I'm listening to a few miss shows on my new couch. Self Isolating Best Practices Strange Times. We're an and Michael. He goes on to give us a nonsense email. That really did not make any sense Nathan. I understand what you're up to and how you're coping I get it no judgment there but just to be slightly more coherent with the rest of your email next time Michael. We're just going to spin his question which was sort of about going back in time to nineteen forty six and going through every NBA finalist to kind of put together a dream finals again. It wasn't coherent it didn't make sense. But here's what I'm GonNa ask you Michael and I'm GonNa pretend this question came from Nathan are baked friend in Melbourne. What was the one finals game that took place before you were born? Dad You wish you could have attended and maybe even written about as a media member is there one? Is it your white whale game that you wished you could have a time machine and be like you know twenty thirty years older so you could have gone to experience. What is Michael so first of all our questions in this episode? Just off the roof through the charts incredible. I want to say that. Yeah off off the roof in through the charts. You're starting to sound like Michael Jordan right now and the ceiling is the roof or is it through the roof and off the chart and see what's happening or are you making up new phrases or am. I just behind the Times. I'm just I'm feeling a lot of inspiration from Nathan and your what's going on with him right now. You gotta you gotta you gotTa Contact High Forbid. Exactly do out there. You're not gonNA throw off your favorite podcast hosts or not going to be able to concentrate. His drug. Free know. Dare dare to keep kids off drugs. Anyway Michael Crichton no but I really loved where you went and where you took this which was You know trying to find the the the white whale finals game before we were where we're alive and for me. It's pretty easy Game for of the Nineteen eighty-four finals this game The two teams were the Los Angeles Lakers. In the Boston Celtics the Celtics were trailing two games to one. They had just gotten blown out in game. Three the series was looking very bleak. They were down six with about seven minutes to go when Kevin McKell clotheslines Kurt Rambis and just the whole spirit of the entire series. The energy shift stores the Celtics and they eventually win it in seven and push their undefeated finals record to eight. No against the Los Angeles Lakers so that game just is like I mean growing up around Boston. You would see clips of that nonstop. All the time people would still be referencing it. It was like better than Carlton. Fisk homerun It was just it was it was a incredibly meaningful place so that's gotTa be the game for me. I would have loved to be in the building. For that and experience it firsthand do you consider yourself bloodthirsty Michael in other words? Are you wishing you had been there to watch? Ramps collapsed to the court. Or is it more of just like History aspect of that victory? It's just I think it's a little bit of both to be honest with you You do strike me as bloodthirsty Michael in your own. Just kinda quiet psychopath type away. Just maybe a little bit. I'm not gonNA refute any of that now. Well I'm going to stand up for the Lakers side of things On this one. I think that's a great pick. I'm not going to detract from it. I'm just going to go a different direction. The game that I've always wished I could have watched in person or covered or everything else one that I've always heard about for years. It's kind of a stereotypical pig or an easy pick. Probably but it's game six of the nine thousand nine hundred eighty. Nba Finals Magic Johnson sort of emergence as arguably like an all time great in his rookie year. Of course the story goes criminal. Jabbar's hurt. He can't play in game six against the sixers. It's in Philadelphia. There may be going to save him for game seven if they need to Magic Johnson. A rookie who's twenty years old and gets thrust into the role as a center in. Kareem's place is going to be able to save the day. What do you know he does by putting up? Forty two points fifteen rebounds seven assists three steals and a block in forty seven minutes. He Shot Fourteen of twenty three from the field. That stat line feels fake for any era feels made up the idea that you would do that in a closeout finals. Game as a rookie is just preposterous. And I went back through. Has anyone else done this in the finals? Like Shirley Lebron US put up a forty two fifteen and seven. Right never happened. No one else has ever match that stat line in the NBA. Finals might do it. Lebron to do it no one else except for rookie year. Magic Johnson. I'm sure the sports writers of their day were running that that famous word quote unquote unprecedented into the ground. After that game right every single person's I never seen this before. Like what are we even compared to do? We adopt magic into the Hall of fame as a twenty year old. Of course he had just come off the the national title win the previous year with the Michigan State. People were probably just freaking out. At what the next fifteen or twenty years of Magic's career might have looked like an and certainly You know he delivered with just crazy. Encore career you know leading showtime for the next decade but at that moment in one thousand nine hundred eighty you probably was just like mind blowing and I wish I had been there to have my mind blown. Can I just add real quickly that I actually watched highlights of that game over the weekend? Because they were airing or maybe I just. Dvr The the basketball love story. Espn's ten part twenty hour documentary. Which I just cannot recommend highly enough to anyone listening to this. You should go and watch that right now I think it's streaming on ESPN's and they have highlights from that game. Which I I'd never actually obviously was aware of it. I knew the box score line. I knew the stakes and everything but I'd never seen just a stream of clips and highlights from it and like it is just magical breathtaking. And it's like you're literally watching a legend. Be Born before here as I could not even imagine being there in real time to see that happen knowing. It's crazy the team. He he played against by the way had Maurice Cheeks Doctor Dr J. Darryl Dawkins Lionel Holland's Caldwell Jones Bobby Jones Henry Bibby Steve Mix. I mean eight-man rotation guy names that most people would recognize thirty years later right and I guess now forty years later and for Magic to put that the team without cream on his back and do it like that it's just wild man and Great Plug their for basketball love story. That's something that everyone should be turning to during this hiatus no question about it. All right Michael. We've got two more questions and they're fairly serious that we're going to get to here. I want to make sure we had this one. It's coming in from Fritz. And he's responding to my idea that I was kind of preaching this idea of look like this hiatus this krona virus is changing everybody's life but do whatever you can to adopt a like. Hey you know it's eventually going to be okay mentality and push off your international trips or whatever else it might be into the future and just try to be as patient as possible and Fritz makes a great point here he writes. I totally understand. The delay mentality is important and it's true for most things but I'm a high school senior and the one thing I can't really delay is my senior spring instead. It's pretty much canceled. And it seems that summer may also be in doubt. This applies to all high school and college seniors but for my friends and I as athletes. We've all lost our senior nights. Our last chance at championships are last time playing on a team. Competitively with our friends excetera.
The Snubs and Surprises of the 92nd Academy Award Nominations
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the Academy Awards. They're here. Amanda the Ninety Second Oscar. Nominations have arrived. How are you feeling bright and early on this Monday morning he I do love it? I don't I don't love being here this early. I was saying to you before before we started recording and it just felt like a disclosure before we get into this podcast. My outlook at this hour of the morning is never the best. WE'RE ARE GONNA be flying fast and loose. That's what happens when you record it seven thirty in the morning. We're going to do our best to not make any mistakes. Some mistakes were made by the academy however will be talking about some of them the snubs the surprises houses. Some of the Nice things that happened with the nominations this morning. It's it'll be a robust conversation about what will be happening on February ninth the Academy Awards. Yeah there are some good do things absolutely absolutely some baffling things. Where do you WANNA start? We start with the big picture. Big Picture let's do it okay. Problem in the big picture do you. Yeah I mean maybe we'll start with the most honored movies that seems like the safest place to start first and foremost first and foremost the joker comes to us with eleven nominations now. Were you surprised now. I wasn't either. Let me tell you something about joker people in the academy love. I love that movie actors. They love it directors. We learned clearly. They love it craftspeople. They love it. Composers there in up and down the board and you've only got one acting nomination for this for walking Phoenix. So you can see how it's it's diversely. Spread across the entire voting body any significant takeaways from joker being the leading vote getter so to speak in this in this race. I didn't expect it to be the leading nomination. I think I expected that to go in nineteen seventeen which is a little bit recency bias and also just because I expected nineteen seventeen to grab every single technical nomination because that's it is Zayd technically accomplished movie so joker winning denominations thing is not what you want it is. It certainly changes the narrative. Maybe I mean it'll change what we talk about this morning. I don't know how much it changes the results on the on Oscar night. It's interesting. How as you prepared to speak about joker you pulled your hair back to a pony tail resignedly? I people know what I think about best and I want to stay right here and right now. It ain't going to change. I think that this is an intellectually bankrupt movie. I think it is the emperor's new clothes. I think that anyone and who thinks that this movie is better than parasite or once upon a time in Hollywood or little women are uncut gems has bad taste and doesn't know things about movies straight up and we can do that for for five weeks or we cannot. I'm at I don't really have the energy to do it for that long. Yeah I don't think that that's I don't think we'll be negotiating that until the movie potentially wins Best Picture which you know not always as the most nominated film the likely best picture winner but sometimes it does happen. Tends to happen with noisy movies. Like Lord of the Rings the return it at King Joker ochre is kind of a noisy movie. This is a billion dollar movie and having this many nominations having this kind of box office having this kind of awareness and having this kind of admiration from from the screen actors is. That's a pretty significant thing. So if we saw a joke best picture win on February ninth. I wouldn't be shocked. I don't know if that's what I'm ready ready to predict at this point but I wouldn't be shocked. I neither and in a lot of ways. It makes a huge amount of sense in terms of the academy has refused to WHO ACKNOWLEDGE COMIC book movies or Superhero Movies for years the academy has been trying to update itself to chew reward new types of movies too like to be current to be younger and that the end of the day the score says he caused play. Look it's tiny. Batman man movie winning Best Picture would be academy esque thing to do. It's true and it would be one year after Black Panther which sort of ushered in a lot of these conversations. What else has been honored here once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite the Irishman? You've mentioned those ten nominations for each movie. I don't think a huge surprise there for once upon a time in the Irish Ryan parasite is excuse me once upon a time in the Irishman ten as nineteen seventeen. Let's just talk about those first four gets parasite and I think that is. This is kind of standard operating procedure seizure. What we've got here is three people who made films who have been hugely recognized in the past Quentin Tarantino? Martin Scorsese Mendis as you said the reasons he buys of nineteen seventeen creeping innocent all weekend thinking nineteen seventeen the presumptive frontrunner for best picture. I don't know if I still feel that way right now. A couple of little chinks in the armor that will take a look at identify whether or not that's still the case any big time takeaways from the ten NAM's for all three of those movies are taking things for granted I am. I know that I'm taking granted. It's fantastic once upon a time in Hollywood got ten nominations. It's fantastic. They got ten movies. Nineteen seventeen very impressive movie. We're GONNA talk more about it later this week. It is less surprising that got ten nominations. You know I I saw someone on twitter describing this as a real like wars and cars years which every year at the academy is that you know the nineteen seventeen is the war part of that but very well made movie I it. So that's good. We shouldn't immediately jumped to all of the griping even though I certainly have and the reason I did that is because Joe got eleven nominations and I really don't WanNa talk about it this early in the morning but there are a great films that are being recognized there are among them is also parasite and little women both of which pulled in six nominations. Yes which is interesting. I am not surprised by either of those things but it is. It is a credible accomplishment. And I think a Lotta people on any kind of film. Twitter sense are frustrated by some of the joker recognition ignition but parasite getting six Oscar. Nominations is insane it is. There is no precedent in ninety one consecutive Oscar categories or excuse me ninety one consecutive Oscars for something like this happening so I take some solace in parasites success. So far I live is my favorite film of the year or was it. Yeah I think I put it at number one very early. It's definitely up there and put it on my decade. Let's no this is an amazing film and like and Bongino hoping direct nominated for best director. That's very exciting. And you are completely right that it was it has become such a quote lock or we we we were so sure of it that we are not like Kinda rejoicing especially in the parasite of it. All little women is the same way. There are a a couple notable omissions in the little women. Nominations that maybe put a sleigh damper on it which we will talk more about but you know it did get nominated for best picture. Sure thank the Lord. I thought that was the one where I was. Just GonNa not show up this morning. Yes so there's something interesting about the parasite. Nominations to be one is that the film was recognized in both best editing and best production design. which are you know? Chris categories and on the one hand that's kind of impressive and shows a broad sense of support amongst the academy. No acting nominations for the movie though. Oh No song-ho none of the other actors in the film were recognized. There's a maybe a case to be made that this is a kind of acknowledgement of like a film mastery mastery but maybe not the same kind of Hollywood is star mastery. That movie like the Irishman or once upon a time in Hollywood receives. I'm not sure where I fall on that. I think it does feel like progress to me to some extent the little women thing you make a fair point which is that on the one hand brilliantly made movie with wonderful performances. It's great that it's nominated for best picture as well. The absence of Greta Gerwig In the best director category something. We'll talk about a little bit more here on kind of what that means. It's kind of dangerous to draw mega conclusions from the Academy Awards. There's only eight thousand people in this group and a lot of them are old and weird so you can't we don't this is even though. This is the sort of the definitive document of movie history story in terms of achievement. It is one of the wonkfest award recognizing bodies in the in the world Academy President David Rubin noted that what makes makes this special is that this is the people who make movies voting on. What is the best movies? And that's part of what makes the ostrich great that's part of what makes them kind of terrible is because there's an insularity into some of this. The parasite recognition is something that makes me think. Maybe this isn't such an insular body anymore. Maybe there are a lot of international voters. Maybe this is changing changing. Maybe the the way that we look at international movies changing in our American culture. I think that's certainly true. And I and I do think that the economy trying to change itself and how we talked about the movies has evolved enough that we were starting in a place where we expected parasite to be nominated expected. Little women to be nominated we were talking about whether uncut cut gems would make an end and the fact that. We're all kind of bummed out about the fact that uncut gems got snubbed. which it your? Maybe you're not supposed to use the word snob in that context. But let's use it always it got snuck. Uncut gems was snubbed and that I think that that in does indicate some some progress wrestle. Change some different lineup than we would have had five years ago and a different approach to the movies on the flip side we can. We can only only addressed the world that we live in. And I do feel because we've been having these conversations for awhile and because it was such an exciting year in a year that has parasite parasite the Irishman once upon a time in Hollywood uncut gems. Little women the farewell. What am I forgetting? I mean all kinds of movie. Sure but you know all vendors and games okay shirt KAZAM. Great Active Pika Chew. Well that was this does I can't help but feel that. This is a disappointing configuration of of that list of movies. It's not totally disappointing. But there is something of. We got our hopes up enough. They are kind of like. Oh yeah this is still the academy. And they're still going to be a lots of nominations for the more traditional types of movies
