"Be in a specific recommendation they would make after you say watching that Lakers game the other night? Blackout, whatever would cause you to forget everything that you just watched. That would be what my recommendation would be. I'm sure they can help you out. I want to forget everything I just saw from the past four hours. Oh, yeah, we got that for you. Don't worry about that. We got that. Three or four different varieties to help you through the Celtic season because you have a variety of mood swings watching this infusion. The monkey strain from grandma's boy. Or from Ted, it's pretty mellow stuff. It's called this is permanent. Exactly. Gotta love this. Ian, we'll let you go to a couple minutes, obviously, but for, you know, all this stuff we've been talking about and just rebuilding this thing. I can't help, but think about. So this week, as I'm sure you know, Kevin McHale, of course, a Celtics legend for multiple reasons. What he did on the floor and his impact, you know, in Minnesota and helping to get Kevin Garnett here and create another little mini dynasty for this team or at least a half dozen exciting, really exciting years. Just went into the tradition in Boston part of that great annual event, Danny ainge was the man that got him in. Ushered him in there was his, I don't know. Whatever they call him, the same that you'd find at the Hall of Fame with the guys that are ambassadors for the new inductees that type of thing. But so you had Danny age, he had a good chat about 7 minute chat with Chris forsberg and delved into some interesting things of what he's up to lately, what could be next talking about this team all that. And the thing that jumped out to me is Chris has he should have asked Annie like, all right, I mean, what's next? You know, you're ready to be a full-time grandparent or you thinking about getting back to work. And..

"Like thinking about like the poster child for college is like drew Timmy. 'cause he does. He has so much fun and he said that. He goes, I asked him. I said, you know, NBA, when they came back, I think it was like in the 30s, late 30s, early 40s, somewhere around there. And he said, he goes, I didn't need to see that, he goes, I knew. He goes, I know my game. I didn't need anybody to tell me I had to come back or what I needed to do to get better. I'm pretty real with myself in my game. I understand it. And I got to work on some things. And I've worked on really my perimeter defense. That's a big thing. And he's like, I haven't shown it yet, but I think I've become a better shooter than I was. And I'll continue to. But ultimately, my team needs me to be in the post and score. I didn't come back to improve my draft stock. I came back number one to win a national title. That's a very mature outlook right there. There's not many kids that would be self aware. And to look at it like that. He's a great player. Fran on the broadcast said, he thinks he's going to come back next year. Yeah, I don't see that. I don't know where he got that from, but he did say it. I don't think so. I don't think so. No, I'd be surprised. Now again, we'll see. Obviously, you don't know what's going to happen. But I think, you know, for me talking to multiple MBA guys after after that game. Most of them felt like there's a chance you could sneak in late first. There's a chance. Is he a lock no? And I don't know who he's like. I mean, I've thought about this. That's a problem. And when you don't have a comparison I mean, that hurts you. It's like Kevin McHale in a way, but Kevin McHale was 6 11. Yeah, he was huge. And it was a different era. They were throwing the ball in the post left and right and those guys wheel and deal. Now the bigs in the NBA, they block shots, they rim run. They dunk. But can he have a workout rob where he goes into a team and makes like I saw sabonis domes sabonis makes 65 of a hundred, threes in Boston. And I was like, oh, my God. It blew me away and don't just walk away. And I said that to him and he's like, that wasn't even good for me. You were blown away by 65 out of a hundred? He had never shot a three at Gonzaga. So I didn't think I thought he'd make 20. I mean, like, the spurs hundred the record is like 96 out of a hundred..
"kevin mchale" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Fantasy always says it's like, you can't be you on a pod or on a TV show. You can't be used specifically. Like what you were talking about where being yourself doesn't work. You have to stick a fight a little bit. Energized it up, but it can't be too much either. There's like it's gotta be like 15% extra. I think that's there. You know what I mean? Yeah, 15%. But a lot of times people are like, oh, what's Bill Simmons like? What Bill Simmons, I'm like, ah, you kind of know Bill Simmons. Don't you think that is like the further. The closer you can be to your actual self, the more successful you can be. It's always odd when it's like, oh, did you hear that? Yeah, so maybe it's like 8%. Yeah, you know what? I gotta take it's 5%. It's not 8%. A lot of people are saying 15% of those people are fools. It's 5.5%. Well, let's do some take stuff, because you think the south that should trade for Ben Simmons, and I think it's absolutely idiotic and I wouldn't go near the guy. Okay. So Nick said this on the show this morning because I was fired up. I said, Kevin McHale is not walking through that door with Kevin Garnett diffract for you. You've got to do something. Yeah. So Nick Nick says, the Celtics haven't have won one championship since the Reagan administration. What is that true? So you got one championship since Reagan left office. Yeah, that's a long time ago. So when you look at it in that perspective, it's been this rebuild for decades. You got one championship that feels like it weighs more than other people's championships. But we got just to make championships as the bucks. And the idea that this team is all of a sudden going to gel and turn into a championship contender is not going to happen. If it was going to happen, it would have happened. So the idea that you can get a three time all star all NBA guy almost defensive player of the year on the Celtics, who, by the way, doesn't need the ball. Like we're talking about, nobody will pass it to me. Ben Simmons raised him like, that's fine with me. Go with me, fellas, I'll pass it to you even more. I'm shocked there was such a pushback from the Celtics faithful that wants to just shred water in the sea of mediocrity waiting for someone to save them. So I'm surprised you didn't like it personally. It's a really strong thing. Literally his name Simmons. And if I told you, hey, the guy Simmons from LSU. Imagine if he was on the Celtics. I feel like you would love it. And now you're like, no, Daryl's trying to police us. Pussy has the same name as my son. So that part would be even a little crazier and more disorienting. I think he is a competitive disorder. Ben. Can you fix that? Yeah, my band doesn't. My band is bad enough. Yeah. Ben Simmons, Philly Ben Simmons, I haven't liked the competitiveness. And I do feel like the more the older I get, the more I do this for a living, the more I think about sports and what succeeds and doesn't succeed, it always seems to come down to at some point everybody is roughly the same talent. You know, you have your outliers. You have Giannis, who's a physical freak. You have LeBron, who's one of the great athletes we've had. And it's also like a basketball genius. And there's going to be outliers. But for the most part, all of these guys were really successful at some level. And then the next level. And then they hit this level where everybody's as good as them for better or worse talent was. And then it comes down to like, how are you wired? How do you shake off failure? How hard do you work? Do you try to get better every year and things like that? And I just don't see it from him. Yeah, so the thing that struck me and I thought it was a huge deal. No one else thought it was a big deal. Is that he bailed on the Olympics? I don't think he has a skill problem or a talent problem or like, he's not gonna learn to shoot great in one summer. He had a big stage problem. So it's like, all right, I just kind of played horribly on the big stage. I wish there was another opportunity, but I guess I'll have to wait till next year. Like, oh, hold on. I can play in a loving environment with patty mills and Joe angles and they had said all the right things and Matisse played and it would have been this great sort of like very nurturing environment, even though like whether you decides or not, Ben is still our friend and we still love him. I was like, this is perfect. He's like, nah, I'm gonna work on my game. And then a few months later, we got some soaking wet sweatpants and jumpers on a half court and half the court was like a putting green. So that he did this as LSU too. Remember, he bailed on the LSC team as that season went along. That was weird. I thought, meanwhile, for the Olympics, Devin Booker, just lost the finals and he rides the plane. All right, you guys are playing with the box. He's like, oh, it looks like we're going over fellas. He just played every reason in the world not to play but the dude loves basketball. And he wanted to go play. So you're making my case for me. I know you're agreeing with me. I'm just saying, I also think Jalen needs needs his own team. I don't want jaylen to jail is not, you know, I hate the Robin Batman thing. But I want him to be, he's The Batman guy. Like let him be Batman on another team. So I want you to succeed, I just don't. My question is, how can they get Ben Simmons while keeping Tatum and brown? Now I'm interested. But at some point, at some point, if you're Philly, you have embiid who knows what his physical shot is does he play three weeks in a row? Is anybody had more stop and starts during the course of a career to him? And if you're Philly and you like the people you have around him at some point, can I talk you into a.

"Planning. A plan is a bit of a stretch. I hope the plane west isn't that great this year. No, it's almost these things are cyclical and basketball. They used to create again. You know what that means? Well, Kevin McHale said, right? Cyclical. Everybody went out east. They avoided LeBron, the west is boring and LeBron's gonna end up not playing in 50, but that's a big problem for the NBA. Speaking of the big men, the top two and yeah, the top three because Giannis is a big man, top three MVP candidates last year. Big men. See? Different kind of big men? They think it's going to be. Yeah. But all it takes is a careen to come into the league with the sky hook. To change everything, he may, you know, but it this Kareem is going to be able to shoot threes too. He's going to be able to dribble, but he's going to have that back to the basket game. And every player as they get older, LeBron is a good point in case they go always used to go around south and play with Hakeem and learn how to play with their back to the basket. As they get older, they play with their bath to the basket more Jordan did, Kobe did. You know, so you see a fadeaway game mid range game more so. And that's going to be look at Tatum is being encouraged to pull his game in. Can you believe that we just dealt with 5 years a decade of your taco, please shoot threes? I can't wait for this year. I'm actually starting to get excited that these guys are might actually play tough. I think they will. Can I make another recommendation that I think you'll like more? Yes, because I'm running out of gas here, what Bobbi, we have 15 minutes left where I'm not getting dinner tonight. All right, why? Who are you removing?.
"kevin mchale" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"We should not be finding out a media day that he broke his foot in the beginning of the summer. Right. That's ridiculous. There was absolutely nothing to be gained from them withholding that information. That's just not being responsible partners to everyone in the league. Especially to this is going to come up more and more and more as the NBA continues to tie itself in with direct eyes to gambling and things like that. These injury reports become more and more important. And it's just teams have to be transparent. They're already pretty good with this stuff, but it goes back to even like the clippers. Why last year? We all feel be back would also be back. Oh yeah, now that we're out, he has a torn ACL or partially torn ACL. It's like, you know, it wasn't coming back. Well, what game are you playing? But that's I'll get off my soapbox on that. So and no, I fully agree without jumping up on my soap box. I fully agree with everything with everything you just said. It's ridiculous. Yeah. Yeah, you can't eat. Insane, that we're fine in all while we found out. But I can tell you two, this caught literally everybody I know, even people who know that team inside and out had no sense that this had happened. And it got completely blown off the radar by all the vaccine related stories because it was like talked for briefly in a moment and then it was like there, and it's funny too, because even some people I've heard, be like, well, he's going to be ready for the star of the season. Who cares? Because this guy weighs close to 300 pounds and he was a big man who jumps and lands hard regularly. It's a little scared. It's one of those things where I just worry about big guys and foot and leg injuries and never really seems to go well. Maybe as a kid, Kevin McHale, breaking his foot, and then he was never the same after playing through it. That's always kind of stuck with me for injuries wrecked Bill Walton's career too back in the day, and that's now people like those guys are old and they played one shorts or three inches above your knee or whatever. So stop. Move on now. But yeah, the good news out of this story is like you said, she says he doesn't want to go anywhere he wants to be in New Orleans. So that's today, what two days ago, I guess that was Monday, the 27th, or whatever it was of September, 2021..
"kevin mchale" Discussed on The Showtime Podcast with Lakers Legend Coop
"Because you guys had Michael do you have like a Thompson coming off the bench? I can't think of another guy. It was like three or he figured out the guy's name. But anyways, you guys had three well it was me, mcadoo, and Michael Thompson coming off the bench because Jerry had went and got Michael just for Kevin McHale to win after that 84. So when he came and I believe it was Larry spriggs, Mike McGee, one of them that kind of like add a little bit. That's what I'm trying to think. I remember you. Yeah, he was the other one. That's why I say, you got had as a tad more firepower. Yeah. Can we be? And that was the difference. And pick it back into what you say to what Michael said, when you got bigger than 85, Larry said something similar. We're gonna get these motherfuckers next time. Oh, we did it. You know what? You really gotten comfortable because you're cursing now. I love that man. I don't know. I don't, I don't swear often. I do swan. I don't do it pass it, man. I don't do it often, but I do do it. Well, you know what? That Celtic, the Celtic Lincoln rivalry brings out some are sweating under my arms over here because I'm against chief and you know what Robert must say this to you. And of all the defensive assignments that we had, you know, you had strategies for different people what birds gonna do, but you were probably the most difficult one to guard because Kareem was okay defensive player, but we knew that you could get your shot off on him. So our main focus was to contain you Robert. It really was through all our children. Everyone kept getting velveteen. You got a huge opportunity, Kevin. That magic came down on you quick, and you knew the main focus of us because we knew he said, you know what? If we can keep Robert's points down a little bit, maybe that might help us because you kind of figure that we know you could get yours one on one, but you knew Larry and then Larry's a good passer. If he got doubled, he's gonna pass it right but you had that turnaround high high shot that nobody could affect. So we knew we had to get you before you got into the motion. Yeah, you were one of our nemesis. You were that kind of guy that was off to the side, but we always paid attention to you. For the record, I noticed it too. Almost every time I touched the ball and I got doubled. Quickly, Robert 85 comes. We come back in 86. He used to go out and get the twin towers and that just was a debacle year for us because we just had all kind of problems. So they ended up with that Ralph Sampson throwing the ball over his head. The ball goes in. They show me laying on the ground. And after the game, we told these guys, you know, went up to Elijah water and Robert Reed. I said, Robert, listen, we can't get there. Y'all kick those guys ass. Will you please? What do y'all do? Y'all sweep the shit out of their way. Wet beer. If I'm not mistaken. Yeah, it must have been disappointed. We weren't there. I beat those guys so easy. I mean, it wasn't looked easy. We were so ready for your makers. Our rocket intended Jane. We don't wound up too tight to face you guys. Yeah. So all that energy on in a different patient on the tension, we just let it flow all over the rocket. We ran through them like a laxative to be honest. What you did listen, we got Robert Paris, the legendary Hall of Famer in the house, Robert, are you having any more questions for him, sir? Is that the picture behind you coupe? Is that as Robert parish on in that picture? Is he no? So I feel bad because Robert Parrish I didn't know that, Robert, I'm sorry, but that's you right there. No shit, Cooper. Robert, that's about not dunking on you like that show on the NBA TV, doctor J Duncan on me, getting out of the way, so don't feel bad. Doctor ducked on a lot of people. Don't feel bad. He talked to a lot of people. And a lot of them do. A lot of them. Absolutely. Oh, my God. Robert, this has been great man. I want to thank you. Hopefully as the family's doing well this COVID, anything like that, anything you want to promote or something like that, no Cooper, I just want to thank you, man for having me as a gift and give me a chance of bringing this and converse and have flashbacks about your fakers. Yeah. So I appreciate it, man. No question. Be careful. You got to be careful of flashbacks that might be a stroke sometimes. So lights go out of something. Isn't that the truth? I don't want to get too excited. Hey coop. I'm a senior citizen now. Robert, thank you for this walk down memory lane. It's always nice to, you know what? I got a chance to talk with Cedric and now that we stopped playing. You know, you guys have always been Friends from afar. Now we've become even friendlier until we talk about the Celtics. Then I'm gonna get ugly again as well as you. But just thank you, man for the time today. Hopefully everything stay safe with your brother. I may come back to you again. We're thinking about having two Lakers in two Celtics on U.S. center. Myself and somebody, maybe Michael Thompson, because he likes to talk a little bit of shit, but Robert, thank you. Thank you, thank you, sir. And coupe thank you and continue to sift going forward. Thank you, my brother. Love you. Love you tomorrow..

We do wander, there's no doubt about in fact, let's wander right off the Hop, you know, we have plenty of time to get into Celtics and summer league, which I know you've been keeping an eye on, of course, offseason moves a month since our last show the Celtics added Dennis Schroder will get into that. But but let's, let's Veer for a second. So this is, this is a reward for those who are watching versus just listening. I'm wearing one of the one of the great homage. As, as the company is NBA Jam. Sure, it's not show you this. Can you see this Max? Yeah, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, obviously, you know, the game NBA Jam. It's got the ratings dead. On speed and three pointers, and dunks and defense. I feel like and and I'll tell you for people that can't see in or just listening Mikhail has looks like he was kind of disrespect in the dunk category. I mean, he's got just a little sliver of green and that a whole lot of red. He was a better dunker than that way. He was about to Duncan in Larry. I can definitely say that and I think something like three-quarters of the bar and I'm like, you look at Larry. Oh, so that was defense. I think that Kevin.

Third player since dirk nowitzki when delayed the dallas to the championship at twenty eleven quite leonard. Twenty nineteen those are the only two players think about in terms of before young to without either the franchise building a quote unquote super team or drafting. A quota will super team or through trades and free agency. The second best player on the team is a top ten top fifteen player in the league. The third player on that group is the perennial all-star if you think about the annals of nba history about the champions for the most part. I mean you have the boston. Celtics with a major star magic johnson superstar kareem abdul-jabbar time in all star and james worthy. You think about the boston.

I became a GM I became a coach. I did color a few I did a lot of stuff. It was only all the basketball and it was all stem from a fall of nineteen. Eighty when I went to Atlantic College saw you do was and called my friends at home and go let me tell you something. You guys sucks. I'm sending you guys that know how to play you guys stink.

They keep you guys on there and I like it, you know, it's just fun. So I just came back to what you said. Is this Celtics team much better than their record. They just got started playing for each other and find that thing inside you that says us winning is way more important than me getting up and you know, it's the way before me man. And and and the other thing I was finished with I told us to everybody and learned it from you guys. If you can enjoy your teammates success your internet business you need to go play tennis because then you're by yourself. So you can yell at Alliance going to do whatever you want.

"You know, Robert was really positive Robert never said a bad word about anybody another great guy, you know, but most people from Robert was playing against him jump This game same thing was Larry. I just weren't stuff from know but you guys were much more vocal and helping helping us young guys out, you know, and and and I you help Danny you help myself, you know ml did I was so grateful for you guys for doing that but wage ml he was funny plays Play 3 minutes and he'd get the headline in the paper ML car and I really remember that some people always took me about this story. It was when we first got Danny Ainge and we were planning how many college and I'm on the podium and then he goes he's still shooting and I'm over their home. Yep, and their staffs out every type 1421 2 or 5 to 6 to 270. I'm like by the time the end of the day. I had got like I think he told me like three shots out of twenty years. We have this guy. Yeah, Daddy Daddy came in and I felt bad for him because I I came in a couple of days late of training camp and he came in and bought a number that we our team was pretty tight. We'd won the championship the year before Danny comes in leaves baseball and Bill Fitch. Was and he was killing him Danny. So Danny had no confidence. I mean, you know, you look look look at the one thing gani could really do was shoot. Yeah and wage and and plus there's a freakish athlete how fast was that Danny was so I'd be like, well you saw say he was a white black guy white black and he he would just run off to do stuff but that poor guy felt so sorry for him. That's like the story we talked about earlier you help them up and you sat there and shot with them for like forty-five minutes after practice when they just pumping them up and getting them going but Danny had a tough start with us home because there really wasn't room for minutes just to give them time and we weren't losing games, you know talked about game seven in Boston. I remember many games like, you know toward the latter part of the Season made with 20 games to go off. We'd be playing nobody a bad call. Look at the reference. You gotta get your head out your ass, you know, usually you would look at you and go like, you know, I said, we're trying to beat the Lakers. We're not trying to beat this team. I'm trying to get a better keep better off. I'll record than the Lakers because I was already looking at them and who's going to get game seven was going to get those games. So Danny didn't have a chance to really kind of just flow into getting you come into a bad team and just slow down. He earned everything he got and I tell you what, I respected. Danny's worked out that cuz he did not come he's in billfish was on his ass and it was absolutely battled and battled and battled and battled but at the end of the day max, I think one thing you say about Danny he's a battler and that's what he is Daddy's compared to dude man, and he just never got down..

"And yep. In a different vibe in tight games like like it was funny cuz we all got quiet we were all yapping and crazy but at that time we all got really quiet and there was there was we all just looked at what we had to do. You know, we got off. Let's go let's go. Let's go execute it. So there was a really quiet confidence about that group. I remember being with you guys again being and being a rookie and you know coming over there and you know in a game got tight man. It was quite often looked around like okay ml got the game face on Max got the game based on Robert Laird. Everybody's got the game based on and that that whole that whole thing coming to game seven. We all had our bases on I mean it was just going to be and I really felt that at that time the game had gotten a little bit more physical in our favor had gotten a little bit more rough and rugged wasn't just attract me. Thank God and I really thought and just we we're going to win this thing. We just got to we got to make sure we take care of, you know, don't give them any second. Let's get as many seconds as we can. We just kept throwing the ball up there and I don't think you know, you had a you had to go on birth. If we had a lot of people who don't think our numbers we didn't have like I shoot a great percentage, you know with that. We kept we just kept going getting getting the ball and battling and that was a feeling of I remember after we won that thing that we really accomplished something. I mean that was like man, you know, if you just said after the game 3 where we going to win that series Vegas odds were like zero and to come back at that team but but you taught a quiet confidence, that's what I always liked about that team and you know every once awhile you when I was coaching you'd get with the team that would get that you get the right five group of guys menu come down for two minutes. They were all locked in. They weren't going to make mistakes. We didn't beat ourselves. That was one thing I learned to from you guys is that don't beat yourself and ml used to always tell me look at I tell you what they'll give us this game. If you just allow them to give us a game to just just just sort of your teammate don't throw it to them. Nothing else is telling me at the end the games and it's amazing how many we did not make mistakes to beat ourselves very often if we would that would be very very seldom..

I would say talent-wise. Yeah. Yeah, but that we had a toughness level to us that we could fall off the board offered to box out. You were just slippery. It's hard to get your tire to get like I had to learn how to 3/4 and and keep keep on you because if I just did this standard turn and go you were always going to the side of me. I'm like that guy's tricky home and you in Larry and I I tell people that people don't know how strong that guy was like Mary would come in to you and grab you and just be really remember the first time I was Arnold damn that guy struck and birth It was just clever too. I get in the office to we had guys would get the offensive glass and hey Danny and DJ were both good rebounders. I mean it was come in there. So we had we just we just kind of just just hammered them on the glass. But yeah, I thought that was fun. That was unbelievably competitive. I went back and looked at they had this thing with a 34-30 and what you forget man. I mean it was it was crazy. I mean it was fun and we had such a tight team that that's what I tell everybody. We had such type team that was going to be hard to break our bond. Like you weren't going to get us fighting each other. We might yell at each other and have you know, little things like that like, you know, like you said like you and I would play against Robert and Larry and it was a lot of it should talk and going on over there. I mean and they don't it got kind of tense at times, you know, so afraid to do that to each other but wage game started we were all on the same page and I'd like to.

Oh just going out and you know, the, you know, the super teams in Thursday night. This is happening. So everybody might as well get used to it and you're going to see more of it because I think guys are going to say, you know, I'm going to I'm going to win a championship just do to me going to play with this group of life as opposed to man. I got a group of guys. We did it organically we were all together and let's go fight. You know, you were around in Boston for some of the brightest moments wage. In some of the darkest moments Len Bias Reggie passing away. I mean it because I always look at Lynn Byers could have lived in your career in Larry's for Thursday in the fact that he would have came in immediately and played and took some of those minutes away from you. Tell us how those dark moments really affected you. Yeah. I did, you know odd because you know, we win the championship and raffle any bias and you know, the kid was just a stunt he was a horse and he was 68, but he'd great body strong pogo stick, you know had a nice touch. She look at that wage. Oh, wow, I mean fantastic and at that point Max's, you know, we had a hell of a run you look at our 81 team and then all the way up through 85. We're in the finals all the time. We're playing late in the season. So we do that again in a V6 drops and you know, we're we're I can actually starting to feel my my myself needing the summer to to recover, you know, like I would get done and I'd be like damn I need to just do nothing for wage. July and August because I'm tired, I mean my body is beat up..

"Betonline.ag your online Sportsbook experts. One thing I'm I'm mad at you about is the fact that I have had every one of these assistant coaches that you were were under you always walk up to me and going. Oh man. Mac told me this story about you and Chris Webber comes over to everybody tells me stories that Kevin McHale his chair and they're all the subject Maxwell's. So what did I do? Now? It was all good Max. I tell you what the story they all end up going down the middle of may not be so good. But the end of story it's all good. I tell everybody getting back to what we talked about. You were so supportive. You helped me so much and you really helped me just on on so many different wage. Is in the on the basketball floor just kind of to find myself because when you're a look at that, I don't care what anybody says when you're a rookie and this week especially about it back. It was so much more physical. I mean, you know, I remember I remember, you know, you had a lot of people to deal with and they tell you right now that they would put some they put some wood under hats and so you get a lot of stuff you're dealing with, you know, just a physicality of the game trying to figure everything out. We had, you know our office and playing with guys and stuff like that. I tell everybody, you know, you were just so supportive and you know, there's just the way you guys treated me as a rookie was really I mean tiny was really in my corner. You could feel it like I'd make a couple of shots in tiny blue block up the Chinese quiet when you place he he was one of the guys had never talked to any smack and stuff like that. We were all yeah pretty crazy. And Tiny was watching him. You gotta go Gotta Go on road. Keep going. Keep going. I would feel like I'd be like on cloud nine. I'd be at home and Tiny Archibald.

"I mean the logo on the lot of stuff so steps really has done major business moves over there is more than basketball for him over there. It's all about business and I think he took his business mind and and put it in China with with the name. I think that's what sells most of his stuff. So yes, you see the Starbucks logo everywhere. Well, okay. Show me a little bit about how you see the NBA now where it is in your mind from when you play because I saw a change and log You saw it and now it's changed again. How do you see a change? I think it's going back being I think it's going by Bay just because of always say the NBA's like a copycat League, you know, whoever wants the chairmanship they're going to follow that took away the last championship that was won by two big was San Antonio and then all of a sudden Here Comes The Warriors with their with their run and they never played a traditional big and then now you got after that you have the the Raptors win and they they kind of changed it a little bit just because of you know, they play big but they didn't play Big Jack still had pieces to Place mall and then you turn around you see the Lakers of what they what they are today and he's only place before so now you're going back to to traditional Biggs and and that's the team to be dead and I just think that you know, I won't say traditional Biggs, I just say hybrid Big's your point where you know, Anthony Davis is 7 foot and you got a guy like Marcus August. That's too big a, New Jersey. Got to be able to you gotta be able to have that in the lineup. I think that the game is Just constant going to change about whoever dominates the league whoever dominates the league is that's going to be the culture change of the NBA. I just think right now the two big lineups as you can see are starting to pop out more take you back to your days with the Celtics things. You remember things were really good things that you look back and say I wish I could have changed this there's a lot of things. I wish I could change just because I'm on the outside looking at home. So that's the lot of self self isolation self looking in the mirror and knowing that you know, there was things that I could have done that could have changed not only me but my family's lifestyle honestly and you know, I found that out at twenty eight years old today as everybody keeps asking me if I'm sick. because I'm so skinny due to the pandemic, you know, and and It's just I would the best thing about being a Celtic is being yourself. If that makes any sense in Jersey. There's nothing better than being the Celtic just because all the people that smoke in front of you yourself Larry Bird Bill Russell Bob Cousy kg Paul. Like, there's so many Kevin McHale. There's so many great Celtics that kind of fell under that often fall under that umbrella to a point where you know, you have a standard about yourself that you got hold and it's unfair standard, but it's the Celtics standard wage one of those things. I look back on and I constantly I've told this story probably..

"His name is John Krasinski And John writes for the athletic, and he wrote an article by Andrew Wiggins today and everybody's talking about how great Wiggins is playing in in the Bay Area, and what a transformation it is for him and all those kinds of things and one of the things you Steve Kerr had a great quote. In the article, and he says he does, she said that all standards maybe 10 or 15 players in the league who determine the circumstances of a team. The other 450 are victims or people who excel based on their circumstances, You know, so like you know that that's I mean, that's that's pretty accurate. Yeah, I mean, like when you look down look down list of the highest paid Players in the NBA on do you look at you know and stuff. Curry is one of them. You know Chris Paul and James Harden, LeBron James, Kevin Durant. You know the those kinds of players kind of termine. You know what happens in the league on But what happens on their teams, But so many players are victims of circumstances and, you know, we have to say this. You know what if in Boston had, you know the Golden State Warriors not treated Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish. What if they would have stayed with warriors back at that time in 1980, Tommy? I'm not gonna play with Larry Bird. What would have been Kevin McHale's career art? You know what would have been. Robert Parish is career arc because everybody assumes the Warriors would have been great, and we don't know that they would have been great cause we don't know that McKay there have been better off and I don't think there's any doubt but we don't know what with the wars or those two Would've tuned tuned into. I mean, no, You're absolutely right, Pete. I'm curious How much you think plan for the Rockets early on and how they played helped you because I know the warrior system helped me because I'm 68 on Nellie. Let me play outside. Let me handle the ball. We ran so wasn't a lot of half court stuff and in the league back then there were big power forwards and big center, So it was just a different league. And that wasn't really who I who I wa so I think playing for him. Allowed me to get seven years in the league, and then there's not a coincidence. Those are my promotes productive years, along with the one you're in Orlando, But you're so right that you could be the same player and you go to a team. And I think Houston was perfect for you two wouldn't admit. Well, I mean, I got drafted with a large one. And so all of a sudden I come into the league. You know, I'm a marginal player. I I made it in the NBA by playing hard. That's that was my best skill set is that I played harder than most everybody I played against and and so I got to play the Kim. Elijah wants and then I get to sit there and practice against him every day and then. Learn these moves and try to stop him and s O. I got better defensively, and I played it for L. Samson and I'm playing with the twin towers, and we're having success, and we're going to the NBA Finals. And, yeah, there's no there's no doubt that being drafted by that team that I was, I was the benefit of circumstances, you know, playing with the team at the right time, and and so this this was the whole thing. Like John Krasinski is talking in this article. It's a really great article to get a chance. If your subscriber to the athletic to look it up because Give you some insight into Wiggins. On big question for me, Tommy, for you like this is and I was talking to Raymond Ridder, who is the fantastic PR man with the Golden State Warriors. I was talking away about this today because You know, having been part of the Warriors system like I was there with Don Nelson. I was there with run TMC a few and saw the culture that sort of that Molly sort of built and But then it got William a lot better with mission and tinny. Right. So then we kind of built the culture and now he was part of that Nellie kind of built this system. But then there was a long time when warrior basketball was not good. I mean, The whole Adelman, Carlesimo, Muscleman Montgomery era and women even only two point all on DSA went so like they talk about enter, enter, was saying this to jump to post game last game after the Bulls game, Andrew was saying that the culture with the Warriors is so much better than it was in Minnesota. And so and so my point with ended. My problem is that Andrew was picked number one. It was given a Max contract in Minnesota. Tom Thibodeau was here and and and he gave tips credit for being organizing stuff. My thing is the players of the ones that create the culture, you know, and Esso and I was asking Raymond this like when, When was it was the culture built in Golden State? Because there was a long time when the culture wasn't good it Golden State. Was it when when Lake of and Gruber took over was when Mark Jackson came in, Was it one step Curry was drafted isn't Larry Riley that should get more credit for what happened with Golden State. I don't think Larry Reilly gets enough credit Tom because he's the one that picks up curry and he and he's the one that picked click Thompson. You know, so like I just so when? When did When did the culture start with Golden State? Tommy? Why? I think it was me. I think it's a slow process, and I think everybody you mentioned Has a hand in it, because step wasn't Steph and really until what about his fifth year and then Mark Jackson got there. And I think that helped change the culture..

NBA: Does Steph Curry Need The Finals MVP For His Legacy?
"NBA finals begin finally tomorrow night wide Leonard comes in under the most celebration on the other side of Steph curry who in the last five playoff games has been absolutely sensational. Scoring even more than Kawai. Steph has three NBA titles to MVP's already but not a finals, MVP Colli does by the. Curry said, quote, it's a special award that everybody wants to get, including myself. But at the end of the day, the first thing I do is look up and see, did you win or lose on quote, we'll curry need this particular ward to validate his great career. No. And the fact that I never even thought about this today as much as I think about uncover, the NBA illustrates why. I mean, I've never thought about this now. It's interesting historical thing, Tony for particularly for older people like us who know the history of the league, and I think back on it, and of the people who've one of those who've won top twenty five place fifteen eighteen twenty players Julius Erving to me seems to be the most famous most accomplished has conic player who is not one because the other conic players, you know, they didn't win or they were the number two guy like Kevin McHale or, or someone like that Scottie Pippen great, great tonic players. I'm not gonna say they certainly are where they are. And I think Julius Irving is the guys is the only one. Right. I guess as Carmello Cremona, John Stockton, but they didn't they didn't. They didn't want to Patrick like you. Reggie, those are not commonplace like you. Seth curry has a chance to be an iconic. He's got a chance to win four championships in five years, he's the greatest shooter of all time. All right. I think of this as a small, it just doesn't even register on me, but, but magic Scott it and birds got it and Jordan's got it and his contemporaries Durant LeBron have this. So if you want to use this as disqualifier because you don't like curry, I guess you can not. I I he's an all time players ever wins this because of everything. He's one I think, might I think this is too small. You gotta get to the finals Griddle with you willing some place winning is the thing again. Tony, I just call it historical greatest note, but does it mean devalue Steph crises, not cement us, now
Lakers reportedly to interview former Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff as coaching search continues
"B Bickerstaff is going to interview for the Lakers. Head coaching position at Bernie, son. It is son. Yes, he spent two seasons as the grizzlies head coach and went forty eight and ninety seven he was also the interim head coach in Houston after Kevin McHale was fired right before the rockets hired Mike, Dan, Tony. He's scheduled to meet with Jeanie Buss. Rob Pelinka Joey bus, Jesse bus, Tim, Harris. And of course, Linda and Kurt Rambis. And yes, his father is Bernie Bickerstaff interim coach five games before. Mike Brown after Mike Brown was fired. But he looks like his dad, of course, you would he's well worked. These are the Lakers coaching candidates, and this is their last two seasons as head coaches JV Bickerstaff was fifteen and forty eight and thirty three and forty nine before he was fired Frank Vogel was twenty nine and fifty three and twenty five and fifty seven for he was fired Jason Kidd, forty two in forty twenty three twenty two five. Admits season final Holland's ten and twenty seven in his last season was fired mid season. And Mike Woodson was thirty seven and forty five before he was fired. That is you'll want to coaching pool. I I don't know enough about J V Bickerstaff to have an opinion. But he's interesting. I always liked his dad. Interesting list. My feeling is that they have completely blue completely blown this coaching. Search not been good. They they should have got money Williams. If that was the guy that they wanted they should've paid whatever and giving him whatever it is. He wanted to get him. Because what I feel like is. If you have someone in mind, that's your number one guy the moment that it goes out to the public. That is your number one guy. He is now your guy otherwise you look like a second option, and you're the Lakers. You can't be the second option. And then when you go to your number two guy, and he turns you down your now on your third option. And everyone knows this is your third option. Well, that's why you know, it's amazing to me. How stuff gets out like?
Officials defend actions after migrant girl dies in custody
"Made the difficult journey through treacherous terrain. This is just a very sad example of the dangers of this charity, according to DHS customs and border patrol agents. Apprehended the girl and her father on December six at the antelope wells border port of entry in western New Mexico along with a group of migrants turning themselves in to the US agents. It was there that DHS says her father at first told border agents his daughter was in good health. It was noted on an English language intake form that the father signed. But he does not speak English. The father and daughter waited for hours before boarding. Rush to a nearby border station. DHS says on the way to Lord Burgh, New Mexico ninety five miles away the girl ran a high fever and started vomiting at one point. She stopped breathing agents revived her and called the head for emergency medical help just over an hour after reaching the border station. She was airlifted to providence children's hospital in El Paso, Texas, one hundred sixty miles away. Her father traveled there separately. The girl suffered cardiac arrest in the hospital was revived but did not recover. She died on the morning of December eight the coroner has not ruled on her cause of death this family chose to cross illegally. What happened here was they were ninety ninety miles away from where we could process them. We gave immediate care. We'll continue to look into the situation. But again, I cannot stress how dangerous this journey is. When migrants she used to come here illegally does administration take responsibility for a parent taking child on a trek through Mexico. To get to this country. No, not far from this hospital in El Paso, the group border network for human rights takes issue with the Trump administration blaming the girl's father. This is not the America that we believe that we used to believe I I mean, mean. the decision of the border these tuition is going to come in on the rest of our society. This is not what the Mary Kay. And Jake the department of homeland security inspector general says that it will launch an internal investigation into the death of this young girl in that the report will be made public, but critics are also wondering why it took DHS more than a week to talk about this case publicly and asking why took a news report to bring this story to light Jake.
