"It was the guy that made the seal that allowed max to score. And so when the guys on the bench, instead of like, hey, if they're talking about chief on that plane, that's team basketball. That's the stuff that wins, right? Right. Absolutely. Well, one of the players who truly embodied that spirit, especially on the defensive end, as the anchor, the anchor of the Celtics culture, when he came here, was Kevin Garnett, Kevin Garnett, of course, is his weekend here in Boston. It will be plenty of selfish legends in this city to take in Sundays. Seeing his number go to the raptors, please lord, please lord, let Ray Allen show up. Please. I think that prayers fall in love. We've given you an opportunity rate to come in, even if they want to boo you, you give over with. And now you become back into the poll of this family and you're right. This is a big weekend and Kim learned that deserves everything he's getting. But as I've said a thousand times, he said, Kevin Garnett called pierce, they don't get that with, you know, and I'm not going forward here without reality. They didn't matter if the big they came in as a big three. We can't we can't give KG's flowers, I don't want to do without bringing up. I'll give them all the look. I've been wanting the players to sit. I've been wanting the people who said this before. I said, in my opinion, I can't run that. It's the best all around player that's ever played with the suffix. And that means both obviously and defensively. You know? Because you said that. I like that. Well, screaming, oh, you're kicking that bird, do you kicking erupt? No, I'm not. What I'm saying right now is that Kevin Garnett wasn't as good offensively as Larry Bird, but he was much better defensively. He wasn't as good as Bill Russell, a defense group, but he was much better offensively. So in that standpoint, I'm just saying he was the best all around Celtic, maybe they ever put on the uniform..

"It's really interesting Howard, like, you know, I thought the poll about this and he shared how his conversation conversations won't ray. And then during our Cedric Maxwell interview, he kind of was like at the end. He's like asking about ray and he wants them to get back together and all this stuff. And you hear Doc talk about what happened and knowing how Kevin feels. And I can say this comfortably confidently and accurately, it wasn't the what it was the how and Kevin has this code. And it's definitely old school, but it's definitely something that I think we all believe in in terms of how we live our lives and our relationships. And when it came to the film, he was like, he's like, I don't want to go there. So he would answer it while we were talking about the super teams and Miami and things like that, but he didn't want to drill down. He didn't want to harp on it. And it goes back to the mission of the film to educate entertain and keep it positive. And yes, Ray Allen, big part of the second half of his career. Obviously, a huge part of that championship team. But as far as the fracture and what happened after the 2012 battle with Miami, you know, we'll see how we structure that with what we build out in the future. But we've got a lot of stuff there to use for sure. Fair enough. Before we go, let me end kind of where this began. You mentioned when you first started filming and it was just or some of those beach scenes and everything else, days before and miles away from the tragic helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and his daughter and the others. I don't think I knew much during the time I covered Kobe for 7 years, Eric knows, I don't think I knew much in real time about Kobe and KG's connection other than the obvious. Kevin Garnett breaks the barrier in 95 the first in 20 years to go straight from high school to the pros that opens the door to Kobe and T Mac and Jermaine O'Neal and a lot of others. And there was always that connection just thematically. They had something in common. I don't think we knew much in real time about what their friendship or bond off the court was. What did you guys pick up on the way there, especially because you're doing this? Obviously in the wake of Kobe's death and again, it's touched on in passing, but before we go, I'm just curious if there's anything else you picked up about what the depth of their relationship was. If I could go first, I think. At the core, there was such respect, but when they were living in it during their careers, I think both of them are the ultimate competitors and alphas and almost like two prize fighters or the way they competed and tried to beat each other. I think there was no room for a friendship at that point. And then it seemed as they got older. It was heading towards the direction where there was obvious appreciation and love and I think it was headed in a direction where Kevin was excited to kind of build that relationship further with Kobe. That was my observation. What were your thoughts? Yeah, I mean, you see them through the archival in the late 90s and you know, that moment at MSG where KG throws up the lob and Kobe just comes swooping in for the two hand dunk and slo-mo. It's one of the most beautiful highlights we've ever seen. And back then they were just kids and they got along. But then came the playoff battles with soda in LA and Kobe had three rings and KG couldn't get out of the first round. And he's using that to just, you know, there's never been anybody better that we've seen and it's inspired my life so much Howard since 2008. Taking whatever he can as fuel and putting it in the fire. So Kobe and shaker winning FD's guys. I've got to go harder at them. I can't be Friends with nobody out here. And then when it came to Lakers Celtics, and obviously, you know, it's public knowledge that, you know, KGs, who he was choosing, he talked about in all the smoke. He talked about the Lakers something that the Celtics, the sons, the warriors. And he, you know, he tried to call Kobe and that summer. And ironically, Kobe ran into power Gasol that summer because of the solar shade that story where that's where he and Kobe ran into each other and then the pal trade happens the following February. So they all kind of landed where they were supposed to, and then went to those battles, but there was so much love so much respect and, you know, Kevin had been spending a lot of off season time in LA for many years, and he was hoping to really increase their FaceTime together and build on that connection and it's an amazing connection to think about, but it's also very sad to think about what it could be now and moving forward. Yeah. Yeah. And that is something that kind of I picked up on that just in that one scene and again, people watch it. It is. It's really moving. A lot of this is. And I just want to say because we hit on some of the more tougher moments, I was smiling for most of this movie. I was watching this for two hours. I was just smiling because it was just so much fun, you know? There are some tough moments, but Kevin Garnett's career is a blast. And Kevin Garnett talking about his career in a way that I think we rarely have seen was a blast. So this was a lot of fun. This interview was a lot of fun.

"Even a decision. Yeah, and the other thing here and the cruel irony, right? If the George Floyd tragedy happens in another city in the United States, another town in the United States has not Minneapolis. We're not having that moment with him when he's at the memorial. You know, we were going to Minneapolis regardless to try to do some things there. And that day, which is really tough to put into words and Howard there's that moment there where KG connects with someone on camera from his past, I don't want to spoil it, but it's like we were supposed to be there with him. And we were in like Gary Trent is there with us. And all these people that he's tied to from his past and he spent 12 years there. And he was never one. He was doing all the community stuff behind the scenes and in Minneapolis. He wasn't documenting it, he didn't care to have it out there in the press. He was just all about doing the right thing. And that community meant a lot to him. And he wanted to pay his respects and we were able to get down to the memorial in a very subtle light footprint way. But from the moment we got there, it was one of the most powerful things I've ever witnessed. And I'm very glad we were able to document him experiencing that. But the key was the right balance in the film, because without that conversation with snoop and without that moment, there is no way we can bridge to seeing what went on in Minneapolis. You know, and there was a lot of conversation we had and edit and do we have it here? There are other places, and it's very delicate. And I think we I think we hit onto the right way. I think we paid it the proper respect and attention. And, you know, Howard just, you know, tying in, you know, the pandemic. It's like originally, we, you know, we had a few lines about the pandemic or what we're living through. I'm like, we know what we're living through. You sense it through the filmmaking. We don't have to hammer at home. There doesn't need to be a 45 second or 92nd COVID sequence. You see, you see our filmmakers and our you see us in bandanas. You see KG with a mask on a different times. You see it you sense it and we all lived through it and continue to live through it so there was no point in trying to hammer that home anymore. So, you know, Howard you tell us. I think we hit the right balance there. And I think it works and snoop from both the seriousness, the fun and that love that they've had for so long, that really shine through when we were very fortunate to get that scene and eventually wall play ball there together, eventually. No, that was snoop was involved in some of the most poignant moments in this film in my amateur opinion. Just as a viewer, the discussion he and KG have about Black Lives Matter. And then on the lighter side, tinged with some heavy Ness as well. When they're talking about Kobe, like there's some really fun Kobe stuff there, even as there's some sorrow mixed in. Snoop was phenomenal in this. And yeah, the moment you guys got of KG at the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis was again just very poignant moving. And it gave it's an unfortunate entry point into seeing a different aspects of Kevin Garnett, the person, but it did give you as filmmakers and now us as the audience, that chance to see this part of KG that I don't think we really could have understood or been exposed to during the course of his career. You know, there's so much that happened in the course of his career. So I do want to ask a couple of things here that like hit me along the way that like, oh man, I really, I'm curious, could they have gone farther in this direction or that direction or maybe maybe there's some people who just didn't want to participate in this. But you know, there's obviously a chapter in there about garnet and marbury and it didn't work out and we hear some of the reasons there. But we don't see Stefan marbury. At kage's own families is not in this. Are there just some lines that you had to respect that maybe he drew at the outset? Because look, the payoff, again, I'm speaking to my audience here. The payoff is this. Whatever the parameters might be. Getting Kevin Garnett to the extent that you guys got him with all of the passion and insights and openness behind it. I would say is absolutely worth it, but I also do wonder as a journalist at heart, okay, but there are maybe some lines that could be crossed here. So if there's somebody who's not in the film, is it because there's just not enough room in two hours or maybe some of them didn't want to do it. Maybe KG didn't want them in. Give me some sense of like save marbury where that fell. Combination of a obviously trying to make a film during a pandemic. Marbury, in particular, you know, he did his own dock the prior year. KG was not in that supposedly they reached out. And, you know, he was okay talking about that stuff. Obviously, but, you know, there's a chorus of voices that take us through that section of the film, but he did not want to go down that road of trying to break step into the film. It just wasn't something he wanted to do. They've gone their separate ways. Obviously, we had that awkward 2000 2009 when marbury found his way onto the Celtics for a cup of coffee or two and they obviously were able to have that work without an issue, but it was never the same again. And it was just something that he didn't want to do. And as far as the family stuff goes, you know, you know, his family is located in a couple of different places and relationships have changed and shifted over the years and it's something that we had talked about. Many times, both before we started rolling camera during the process, once the pandemic started and, you know, we, you know, we were kind of teetering back and forth and ultimately it was something that we just decided. Look at this story we have, we don't think we need to force this and there was obviously hesitation on his side and this is kind of the way it panned out. Well, and just to that point real quick, Brian, I'll let you go, but I actually thought even without that even without certain necessarily maybe family voices because you have his youth coaches and some other key figures from his childhood, the story about kind of his basketball origin story, which I don't think I'd ever heard before is really interesting and it involves anecdote about his mom and everything, which again, I'll leave that for the film. People go check it out, but it's really it's fun, it's interesting. It's a new insight. And so it is all there. So I want to note that as well. Brian, do you want to jump in? Well, let me. Just before you going to say this, just let me add one thing. Just regards to family and some of those voices in the film, like it's very clear like these bonds that he's had for so long, like coach wolf from farragut. Ronnie feels like they still feel like family to him. Isaiah Thomas family. That type of connection. And at that type of love, and we felt so fortunate that they felt the same way about him, which is why those interviews we felt were so strong. Bounce past the.

"And not rely as much on still do the single subject interviews, but not living them as much, but we were so fortunate that we got so many strong ones that that worked itself out. But, you know, we started those beautiful beach scenics and his first hero interview and the fireplace scene, all of that stuff is shot January 24, 25, 2020. And then we wake up the next day, Dan Levin and I go for a quick breakfast. We're still in Beverly Hills. We have a four o'clock flight back to New York. And then all of our phones start going crazy. And we're in disbelief about what we're seeing and what's going on. And we were literally filming with KG 24 hours before with our toes touching the Pacific Ocean ten miles away from where the tragedy happened. And obviously that affected the world in a certain way, but Kevin specifically obviously really emotional about it and understandably so, and he needed to just unplug and think and bride just build on this next thing. We're fortunate enough that we're still able to go to Chicago and execute what we were going to Chicago for for showtime basketball, for Kevin, not all of the smoke, but most importantly for the shoot back at farragut. Because if we don't get that shoot in that way back at farragut in February of 2020 before the pandemic, we're not sitting here talking about the same film. That's also a weekend, right? Or the week of the All-Star Game in Chicago, which is really like the last big NBA thing that happened before the pandemic. There was a lot of trips, a lot of us took. It was president's day Monday. It was after the All-Star Game. School was closed, and we got in there with Kevin and coach. That Monday right after all star. According to note, too, I mean, Kevin hadn't been back to the school and in 20 plus years. So it was the first time back. He was a bit I think emotional and kind of, I don't know, a little intimidated by doing it. It was all star weekend. We had all the smoke going on. We had a lot of things going on. And I remember us huddling and saying, okay, do we try and force this? Do we get it in while we're here? Chicago easy play. We can always come back and get this and it was literally 50 50 and Dan Eric made the call to say, I mean, let's just get it, let's be safe we're here. Let's rally. So we did it. We got Kevin on board and thank God we did, because as Eric said, the film would be entirely different if we didn't get that day at the school with him. That essentially, I think, is one of the key anchors to the film and enabled us to keep a majority of the structure that we had outlined pre-pandemic, you know, that helped us, I think, carry it through the pandemic as we had that great weekend in Chicago. Yeah, and just Howard just for you to now obviously included in the show, but, you know, we then take we take a three month pause. I mean, we're literally three months we're down and we have to figure out how we're going to move forward, not so much with all right, who are we shooting next? And those logistics, but more of like, what's our approach going to be? You know, are we taking this four to 6 weeks at a time? Are we taking this two months at a time? How much can we travel? How much should we lean on remotes? And we just kept having this evolving formula, which eventually led me to going out back out to LA in June of 2020. And Brian and I worked out a plan. Dan came out with me for the first week. He had a newborn on the way, so he came out for the first week and we started doing interviews again. So we did part two of KG, but this is where we got pierce. We got rondo. We got Doc. We got cassell. We got Barnes. We got meadow. We got jelani. Might be missing one, but we got all of those before the bubble started again. So again, it's like, if we don't get these guys now, we're not getting these guys because, you know, Doc cassel rondo, they had to go back to the bubble. So the timing of that and getting those was huge. And what that allowed us to do was start the edit process. So we could start cutting and molding and I can't speak highly enough about James Lester, our editor. He's an absolute rockstar and the rest of the post team. We were able to then figure out, okay, we're gonna edit as we go. This is what we need from the next people. And the next people and how would you did your interview when we were in New York in the fall of 2020? And we just kept it moving and as Brian says literally every week across the board on showtime basketball stuff that we're building. It's just the first down at a time. It's the first down at a time, and that's all we did and we're able to chip away at it. And thank goodness it worked out. Yeah, and I should just use this opportunity to apologize to viewers for the overabundance of my face in this film. I blame my two guests today and their film editor, but no, it was an honor to be part of this, honestly. Thank you guys for allowing me to talk for a while on camera. About critical glue Howard. Critical glue will be my new Twitter avatar bio. No, I see the guys that you interviewed for the names and faces in this film. It's incredible. I have many moments of just going full weight and Garth that I'm not worthy. But it's incredible. It's a phenomenal lineup of people, including snoop. Snoop Dogg, who's home? You apparently were in. There's also a really compelling discussion between Kevin Garnett and snoop about Black Lives Matter about George Floyd. And it's interesting, I wondered about this decision you guys made us filmmakers that this is a film that if it had been done at any other time in history, KG's last year immediately following his retirement, whatever, parts of this are very different because there's no pandemic and there's no Black Lives Matter movement at this level, right? You're finishing this or moving through this while our whole world is being disrupted last year. In a lot of really just intense ways. And so this becomes part of it. But the film itself, you know, a retrospective on Kevin Garnett's career is gonna stand the test of time and that career is nothing to do with that moment, but that moment happened. George Floyd happened, Black Lives Matter happened. The pandemic happened. How did you decide to say, look, we have to at least weave this in as part of the narrative, even though this is kind of post Kevin Garnett career. I can say, I mean, it became something I talked to you real quick, but at one point it was a conversation and possibly a decision. And then after a while, it kind of wasn't even a decision. It was just it inserted itself as a character in essence. And we had to include it as we told the story through those times. But I'll throw it to you, but, you know, my point was, I think it I remember having some conversations, do we? Do we not? And then ultimately, it really wasn't.

"My guests today are the filmmakers behind a phenomenal new documentary on Kevin Garnett. It's called Kevin Garnett, anything is possible. It's available on showtime in the showtime app as of Friday, November 12th. That is the date that this podcast is dropping, so if you're listening to this, it should be available right now or within a few hours. Either way, go find it, it's incredible. Joining me to discuss the documentary are the co director Eric Newman and the executive producer Brian Daly and they got so many great stories to tell. I've seen the screener of the film. It's an incredible ride, two hours, but it flies by. Takes you from KG's youth and his basketball origin story all the way through to his retirement. Of course, the Timberwolves years, the championship in Boston. A lot of surprises along the way, some new insights into KG things that, you know, 24 years covering the league, things that I didn't know. And some great voices in this film too. They got Alan Iverson, Paul Pierce Doc Rivers, Snoop Dogg? Yes, snoop. And in fact, those are some of the best scenes are between snoop and KG. This episode of the pod was also just really fun for me on a personal level because Eric Newman, who is, as I say, the co director, he and I are good friends, we were coworkers at bleach report years ago, one of my favorite people to have worked with back in the day and I just couldn't be more proud as a friend to see the amazing work that Eric is doing now. So yeah, a little bit of personal interest in this one, but mostly it's just a great film about KG and this was a really fun interview with Eric and Brian. So listen to the podcast, then go watch the film or stop this right now, go watch the film first and then there's no spoilers or anything. You can do it any way you want to.

Chris mannix, and Howard back. Now pleased to be joined by the filmmakers behind Kevin Garnett, anything is possible. Co director Eric Newman and executive producer Brian Daly, gentlemen, welcome, thanks for being here. Thank you, Howard. Great to join you. This was finally safe. I can finally say, what up Beck in proper context? You can. Great to be here with you, buddy. And I can say hello Newman for all of my podcast listeners to hear so that I can beat to death further a joke that I've been beating to death since you and I started working together 8 years ago. And you're still putting up with it, which is honorable. This was a phenomenal ride, as I mentioned in the intro to the episode today, two hours, but and I texted you this Eric as soon as I finished watching it. It went by so fast I would have watched another two, three hours. KG, we know even before there's a documentary done before a film is made about him that he's an incredibly compelling and energetic figure. And so it's a natural in some ways, but I feel like one of the great joys of watching this film is that we saw I feel like the full KG, there's so much there. He's so great as the narrator of his own life. Not that you guys didn't have to do a lot of lifting at times, but it almost felt like he's one of those guys you could flip the camera on and just say go because he's actually I feel like a natural storyteller. He's got so well, as we know. So let me just start with this. What was the collaboration with him like? He is an executive producer on this himself. How much is the two of you as filmmakers kind of sketching this out versus KG saying, listen, this is the way to tell my life story. Where's the meaning of the minds there? Well, it started, we can get to the back backstory a little later on, but, you know, in terms of coming together with KG and for some that only know him for his encore personality, he is so humble and we literally had a force him to the middle where he wanted to lay out something Howard that started with the impact and domino effect, of course, of his leap from high school to the NBA in 1995. And then just wanted to trace all of those things that led to. But he kept leaving out his story. So, you know, I thankfully, was put in a room with him in January of 2019 when Brian and I were both working on the DeMarcus cousins film the resurgence. And thanks to Mark Levin, our partner at blowback production, who had a relationship he was building with KG and his group. He got me in a room and we just started vibing on this energy about the time frame of 25 years. And yes, all the things that he impacted from that decision. But then also weaving in his story and obviously that's an incredible arch as it is. So that's what we're really starting to put the framework of this together. And then flush out all the different elements because as we all know, there's so much that goes into this story, both leading up to him. Declaring for the draft in 95 at barragan in Chicago. And then, of course, everything that happens thereafter going to the MBA. Brian, jump in, what was the collaboration like with garnet and how much else did you guys have to if he doesn't want to talk about himself? Did that present a particular challenge? It's a two hour movie about Kevin Garnett. How did you find a way to kind of get him to engage on that level so that's not just about, okay, the broad outlines. Yeah, that was one of the craziest parts to get to know him early and understand how humble and almost uncomfortable. He is talking about himself. So getting him comfortable with the idea that no Kevin, this is not a story about the last 25 years and you've done some things. This is about you and you need to be comfortable and accept that. And it's not going to work any other way. So, you know, he slowly I think in a testament to Eric and the team around him, he was just so comfortable for day one. And thinking back to that first pitch meeting, if you will, but it was so far from a pitch meeting, you know, typically pitch meeting, you think people coming in with DeX, selling really hard, you know, you got to think about it. Once you leave the room for a couple of days, maybe weeks, maybe months. You know, within minutes within a minute, we knew right away that Kevin is a storyteller on another level, his personality is his charisma, his energy. By 5 minutes in, he was sweating through his golf shirt as if he was on the court just to give you an idea of the intensity at which he was he was speaking to everybody. And Steven Espinosa was in that room, president of sports at showtime..

"Lower the music for a second, Pete, and we're gonna get right back to sound check. You know what bothers me more than anything? And this is where nobody wants to know if your lions fan you don't want to hear it. I don't wanna hear this than any other. Get it all right now, if you did the pecking order, Of course, there's a reason the Nets right now coming forth of my teams because it's just been such garbage. In the way the NBA was structured, they never had a chance to win a championship. Course I watch him and I enjoy them. But I'm never going to get and kick and scream and go nuts. I was also a fan of the poll peers. Kevin Garnett trade because there's nothing go nuts about why is it that every super team put together in the N B A. In my life finds a way to win a championship. And the moment that the team I grew up rooting for Finds their way happens to fall into a big two and then a big three. How is it that they are the team that can't get out of the second round that they are that's gonna concert. You know, And I know this story is not done being written. And there's next year and hopefully the year after folks that's not fair. It's you could argue super teams aren't fair. But when you have a super team and other super team fans have to experience their title. What happened to the Nets just wasn't fair. It's not fair. There's no part of it. It's fair. They should be playing in the Eastern Conference. Final enough they got to the NBA Finals have lost Some stupid. At least they got there there on the second round with Kevin Garnett. I'm not Kevin Garnett, Kevin Durant, James Harden career. It's not fair, and I don't want to hear what the Lions fans, the Browns fans, the Cleveland Indians, friends What happened to the Nets wasn't fair. It was not fair, and now we can raise the music back up. You. Have you argue with that? No, It certainly wasn't fair. I mean, it's unfortunate that those two guys got hurt, It really is and that Middleton and Yannis made some Some big shots, and I can't believe that. You know, Durant, Um, I was texting with our body. Mike Bisceglia, former producer of Geo and Jones. Now I think has the number three rated uber eats based podcast in America. I was I was texting him during the game. I said, I can't believe that their toenails away from being in the Eastern Conference final. I mean, Durant is 6 10 6 11 7 ft. I don't know what size shoe we need. I don't know He needed longer legs, smaller feet, but he is centimeters away from being behind the line for three and a one point win, as opposed. To a tie game and I was not confident going into overtime. And my fears end up being correct that they were. They had nothing left in overtime. Um they were they weren't that close. I mean, and it almost shouldn't matter like it should have been good enough to be three points. But, man, I just I'm with you. It sucked it flat out sucks, but because they're not for me. They're not the Mets. They're not the Rangers like I was okay by lunchtime yesterday. You apparently you're not. Okay, Jesse. I'm still ticked because I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel with anything else. We joked about the Yankee bandwagon. I I mean, you were joking about the Yankee, but no, I mean, like, I still can't. I'm sure Look, you click the tape. August the pom poms might be out. I'm very excited for Giants football this year really do think that they're going to be good. I think they're actually gonna be a playoff team but again, thinking in them actually proving it to me, it's a different thing. It's different when things come together and you have, like real genuine, not just you thinking they could win it all like everybody thinks they can win it all for a team. That doesn't happen that much. And when the Recent history. The NBA tells you that a team like that does win the title and it's your team and then they don't and they don't get the Eastern Conference final..

Not in the brain, the Celtics are the Sixers are not and the Celtics home. So, the point is something happened between the but that, that Miami fight that Washburn covered, right? Then in the bubble, the one was smart, screaming and yelling. Oh, opening night, cuz I don't think they've been the same since that game. Hm, right. I'm you know, I'm going to get out of your guys, but I do this. This is my last appearance of the Season. Thanks to everybody. There's a lot of fun and I as a spectator have never been more entertained by a post game show more than a game. There were a multitude of games. I didn't watch guys, but I tuned in to the post game show, so Kick-Ass and the listeners to in the viewers and the Chatters. Thank you. I'll see you in La Crosse. Go talk to Nick, unlock or room and yeah, I'll pinch or something. I'll make it entertaining Thanksgiving and some people in over there. You know, today's kg poem. Sure, I'd I want to keep that conversation going. Obviously, we'll hit more on who they're going to play on Tuesday and that kind of stuff tomorrow. Kg I was listening to the radio shack in a grand. Yeah, I was listening the Max and what I found. So I, I wasn't obviously covering the team back then. I was, let's see. Ten years old when kg arrived in Boston. I didn't, I wasn't a credentialed involving. I did not. I was no Shams starting at at 12 or whatever he did. I found the craziest thing about that time, they've obviously done a documentary and this and that about that error people didn't weren't necessarily sure if they wanted Garnett, you had Tommy heinsohn. Now it's saying that if Al Jefferson was traded he was going to quit. You had Max Steel in a similar way and quite a few people in the city. It seems like weren't sure if they want to trade, Al Jefferson for Garnet, which seems crazy to me now, I remember Jefferson, especially once he got the Charlotte and it had probably the best season of his career in Charlotte. Probably the last best post play season that we've seen in the NBA off before it officially died. So, Jefferson was a great player and he ended up having a great career. But when you think about what kg brought the boss, then the fact that that was even a conversations crazy to think about. Now I I just whenever I heard anyone say that, you know,.

But also, if you want to pick who you want to see, wizards Hornets. Took ahead on this next topic, we're about to get a kg wrap. This up, Kevin Garnett going into the Hall of Fame today said in his press conference. He wishes he came the boss. Sooner. And he said, stuff like this before, but I always wondered is Garnett going to make his Timberwolves experience, more Central to his Hall of Fame entry, or is it going to? He's going to go in as a Celtic, and it's pretty clear, especially with, especially, with some of the ownership believes that he's had with Minnesota in recent years. He's going to be the same though, he's going to be remembered as a split like he loves what if I wanted to Thursday, but again I still think slap to the face almost a little bit to have a rod owning that team. Now over Kevin Garnett which magic say to him. Magic had a I just saw the headline. I'm not going to one of those guys who's like given the news based on headlines, but I guess magic Edward for a rod. I didn't want to look it up. It's just Democrats might I didn't know the point that Bob making do it 4 kg. It's just like seriously you have to try to own this damn team forever and a day and now you want to sell it. Why is that? That they they're just don't and then they want, they haven't retired his number yet. I mean, like why is there since beef there? I don't, I don't get it because, I mean he's the most iconic player. Your organization has ever had. He is Far and Away the best thing that could have ever happened to your organization and you would think that they would treat him with a little bit more respect and a little bit more admiration.

Do you believe the Celtics blew out the Timberwolves? Today, I was watching on the go, I came back and watched the second half years. In the house and I just couldn't believe it's the lead. Got bigger and bigger as many as twenty one. In this one, the Timberwolves never made that rally know the young guys and Tatum and Fournier just took place in Minnesota. I know there has been down on Minnesota. All year. He hates that team. So probably wasn't a surprise in the him but he like, here's the thing. I don't hate the team. I just hate the way that they called them. Really, that doesn't mean I hate him and that doesn't mean I'm wrong. I mean when you when you play as pathetic as they do, I think you've earned the moniker of being referred to as a g League team that digs I hate him. I love Anthony Edwards, cat. I think it's just kind of coasting, I mean, I think you can get you 20 and 10 without batting an eyelash and D'Angelo is just a shot chucker. I'm sorry I can do without yeah, but Karl Anthony towns.

Well oh yeah, he's he's off. He's been I just wrote about him and police report this week and again just talking with different Scouts about him and just how he has.

The Tao of Bill Walton
"All right. So chris from your conversation with him and from watching him as a broadcaster over the years. How would you say bill. Walton has evolved from my selfish perspective. He's evolved to be more interesting. I remember watching those. Mba on nbc games with bill walton and marv albert as a kid. Bill was nothing compared to what he is now. Penetration jumpers in transition whereas the defensive resistant for minnesota walton. Was the guy in a suit and tie on nbc for several years. Kevin garnett is thirty six in the nba. Free throw attempts. That's not good enough now. He's the when there isn't a pandemic going on. He's showing up at basketball games in grateful dead shirts and he's embraced everything that he probably had to bury for a very long time. Congo line coming from our free gave receptionist vicky driving that train leading the haredi onto the court. This was so much fun. We've done to do a really good job all the time. But he wants to do his way and his way is to have fun key. Eight a birthday candle. That was let off of a cupcake. He just swallowed the flame home during broadcast. Take a bite out of it. While it's lit ostade about the face for a lot of viewers. They want the nuts and bolts of a pick and roll offense or how you trap bill. Walton doesn't offer much of that bill walton wants to find a correlation between a slam. Dunk and the majesty of the grand canyon. He wants to see a perfect rotation for an open corner. Three and somehow relate that to a grateful dead concert imagination. It's not work. It's taking an idea of building a now synchronicity. What did you learn how to ucla. Or is that prior to your though. I learned that at my i did and i think the most fascinating part of this whole thing to me is that there are subsets of the internet. That either eight bill love. Bill are want to know what he's on and what he's on his life.
The Return of Playoff Rondo
"So Bill Game One against Houston was Rozan rondos first game nearly six months. Can you break down everything that he went through with injuries? Yeah. It was interesting because this is a guy who has been slowly it feels like kind of breaking down as he's gotten older he had two broken fingers on his right hand last year his first year with the Lakers. This year he had a calf injury. He had an aversion fracture in his right ring finger and this is all before we get to March and the shutdown from the pandemic. So the Lakers are off for four months they go to. ORLANDO. Rajon Rondo is with the team their first practice inside the bubble Lakers guard Rajon Rondo has suffered a broken right thumb in. He's expected to return to full basketball activities in six to eight weeks, he's going to undergo surgery to repair the fact fracture this week. So he leaves the bubble has surgery. He's out for another six weeks or so the Lakers have a first round series against the Blazers Rondo, comes back to the bubble and is actually cleared to play for game three against the Portland Trailblazers, he's on the court getting ready. For that Game Rondo was listed as active tonight for the Lakers but was a late scratch with back spasms that happened. So, by the time, we got to game one of the second round against the rockets. There was kind of this sense of porcelain Rondo forget about it what level, but is he just going to be healthy enough to play and be able to stay healthy to make a contribution to this team? What does he had to say about all of these injuries he basically downplayed the injuries and said that these are the sorts of things that are going to frustrate. Anyone was very frustrating injury and step back I'm my career fourteen years have. Everything happens for a reason. Obsolete man says talks we. Still for the moment but the timing of this latest injury, the broken thumb and the back spasms I think particularly frustrating for him because this is a guy whose entire reputation and career is built on playoff performance on being a guy who really ramps it up in the postseason. Early, in his career uses a second your point guard with the Celtics out of Kentucky playing with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Paul. Pierce and he ended up playing an instrumental role. You remember the two thousand, eight finals against the Lakers decisive blowout game. You know he had twenty one points against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers twenty one point seven rebounds eight assists six steals to give the Celtics a championship for that story franchises nearly ovation barrage. You've seen it win Lebron was in Miami. If you remember game three of these conference semi finals Rondo dislocated his elbow. Oh. Wow. Left arm hyper-extended boy. Didn't see it on that I replay certainly. Saw It there. When back to the locker room pop back in came back onto the court to help the Celtics with game. Time is pad. Rajon Rondo expired the crowd rare Boston. We've seen it time and time again in his career in these big moments, it's not superhuman. But when you take a player who is seen as a high level, but not superstar player can a hitting that superstar switch when the playoffs come then obviously a legend starts to grow. And for him did have another injury right when the Lakers were expecting to get him at his best was extremely frustrating. But the timing actually ended up working out he made it back for the second round series against the rockets and as we've seen was really no worse for the wear the Lakers got blown out by the rockets in game one. They're all going to be in a good mood tonight as the Houston Rockets when it one twelve to ninety seven. But after that, they rattled off four straight wins how much credit do you think Rondo deserves further taking that series. So easily I think you could make an argument that without Rajon Rondo certainly that the Lakers wouldn't have off the next four wins, but he was instrumental in games two and three and four also, but specifically games two and three with his performance in the fourth quarter game too. He knocked down a late jump shot to kind of hold off the rockets and what was a close game Rondo two. Point jump shot that's Rajon Rondo with a bucket right there ten points nine assists for Rondo and then engaged three. He was actually the guy who is Lebron James on the bench to start the fourth quarter in what was a close game at the start of that period he either scored or assisted on Lakers I eight possessions of that quarter to help kind of turn what had been another tight close game into a rout for the Lakers. Rondo. He'll three and Rondo hits another one largest laker lead tonight Rondo has. Been Spectacular and a nice Lee for Kuzma. This is sort of how his reputation has been built. But this also is kind of out of line with the way he's played for the Lakers over his first two years. He hasn't been the guy who has come up in the big moments or been clutch. You've seen the decline of a player who's in his mid thirties and has been in the League for fourteen years, but there has always been this belief from the Lakers that when the playoffs come that he. Would step up and have those sort of vintage Rondo performances and so what you saw was sort of this return to form that the Lakers have always promised would be there and you saw not only offensively. But also defensively when Houston started to make runs, it was Rajon Rondo who was picking up James Harden full court and pestering him into turnovers they double team Arden and get a steal and another round of bucket. That's a ten old laker run hard was trying to go behind the back Rondo was right there. In both game two in game three second-half possessions where rondos picking up James Harden. The former MVP of the league, hounding him into a turnover, taking his pocket and going the other way for layup that completely shifted momentum and those both are Lakers win. So when you look at what Rondo did in those two games, I, think you could easily say that the Lakers could have been down two. Oh, two one in the series instead of kind of romping to a five game series victory.

"So Kevin Garnett not a fan of the timber wolves ownership Kevin Garnett apparently had a deal for a minor ship owned a minority ownership stake in the timber wolves before flip Saunders passed away he told the athletic about Glen Taylor the owner Glenn knows where I'm back I'm not entertaining it first of all it's not genuine too he's getting pressure from a lot of fans to retire my Jersey I guess the community there glad I had an understanding before flip died when flick died that understanding went with flip for that I won't forgive gland I won't forgive him for that I thought he was a straight up person straight a businessman would flip died everything went with him my years of Minnesota I cherish at this point I don't want any dealings with Glen Taylor or Taylor corporation or anything else that has to do with him I love my wolves I'll always love my guys I'll always love the people who believe with me there I'll always have a special place for the city of people who are snake like J. O. all you have to guard it that's all over glad Taylor calling with steak steak like snake M. F. for well Glen Taylor certainly not the best owner out there look at how the Timberwolves have fared under his direction and flip Saunders I think was the guy that had the loyalty of cagey because of their time together when Katie was planned for fourteen seasons of Minnesota and without that that kind of line of trusted think that happens a lot of lines of business I know that I've worked for companies where I said okay I hear the person I trust in that company and then that person leaves you go all boy well I have no trust in the people above that are below that or what now the person that I actually had my connection to is gone and now who do I trust and I think that happened with Kevin Garnett Glen Taylor's run a bad organization for a really long time let's face it so cagey has every right to be upset annoyed bothered what have you I do think it's a little Patty to not have your number retired because that's really more about the fans you know I I get that the ownership gets a ball bat if they get a for a full house should they get some good to get some good sheen but really when you retire and number that about your relationship with the ownership in my mind not necessarily I would also say I don't no all find love being in business cagey he feels like a pretty volatile character I don't know if I would love having to beat a boardroom and have to deal with Kevin Garnett if he disagreed with some of my decisions are one of my decisions or what outfit I was wearing or how I was breeding or the type of evidence I like to be kept a guard that could be wound pretty tight for any business decision but ultimately look I I trust Kevin Garnett more in this battle because Glen Taylor's Rhonda terrible franchise for a really long time so what benefit of the doubt does he get I would say also it is interesting here that the Timberwolves can't retire Keiji is number because cagey hates ownership but the Celtics aren't morass I find it'll it's a little weird to me that he could play for six seasons in Boston and get the number retired because it's not exactly like you play for the Hornets you know this is the Celtics this is bird in McAllen you know some of the greats of all time bill Russell and Havlicek Uzi and these are the greatest players and some of the greatest dynasties end you there six years and you get your number retired isn't I mean I know that he was the emotional centerpiece of that await team but is that enough time for Katie to get his number retired Boston I'm gonna be very careful here not to be hypocritical because you know I've been very supportive of a lot of the Yankees having their numbers retired when you have not been you hold number tyrants to the very high standard for measuring organizations personalization yeah I mean certainly if you're the Timberwolves you could retire Sam Cassell's number for all I care in the heights the Timberwolves but for the Celtics of the Yankees in the Lakers I think there should be a higher higher regard I understand that however the difference between the Timberwolves agents of his days he did win a championship and for the Celtics that always championship was for that organization a very long time coming there were some dark days in between error is there and frankly some days a little bit overrated since well the last championship before.
