"Nate Johnson, the associate head coach, said Kobe as being the best of the best in the NBA and Kobe saw to be in the best of the best in junior college baseball. So in May of 2018 now, John altobelli has this surprise for his baseball team, Chris? What exactly happened? Well, the video is amazing. You know, the players are kind of sitting in the dugout and, you know, they're kind of wondering what's going to go on. And all of a sudden, here comes Kobe Bryant. We got a special appearance. Kobe Bryant is right in front of them and he's going to like pep them up a little bit. He comes out and goes, hey guys, how you doing? All of a sudden Kobe Bryant is talking to this team and telling them to do well. One of the players asks, so what is the mamba mentality exactly? And well, we can't say what Kobe's response was. Maybe we'll just say screw him. That's about as good as we can do. Screw him. A calling card for the Bomba mentality and for their march to success. Well, that march for success. I mean, I want to be clear about this too because a year after Kobe visits with the team in May 2018 as we just said, John altobelli and his pirates, they're going for another state title here. Again, in the very competitive state of California, what happened on that big day? This is just a thrilling

And yet for the first time, in almost three decades, this team is taking the field for its opening day without the man who defined the program. John altobelli. When I say this is the house that auto built, he didn't do it lightly. This was his dream job, and he loved every second of this job. His leadership. His love of competition. He kind of embodied the mamba mentality. I've described him as a Kobe Bryant in junior college baseball because he knew how to win. And so while

The WNBA Got It All Wrong With the All-Star Game MVP Trophy

"All saw the biggest reason of the biggest weight, the WNBA got it wrong. Or more accurately, the smallest way that the WNBA got it wrong. And what is that way that the WNBA got it wrong? Y'all see that all star trophy. All right, now if you did not see the all star MVP trophy. If you did not see it, I want you to pause right now and go check out that trophy, okay? Go ahead. I'll be here when you get back. Don't you worry. Now, congratulations to you, Kelsey plum. You were the All-Star Game MVP. Bruh. That trophy was like one of the cup trophies, you know what I'm saying? With the handles on the side. That woman was holding that trophy up with both hands, and I guess because it would have made for a more symmetric photograph. They should have just let her hold that thing in the palm of her hand. That trophy was so atrophy look like they got it from the trophy shop. Like, you're all star trophy shouldn't look like a trophy that you could conceivably hand to every member of the team. It should look too expensive for that. No, no, no. And who knows, man, maybe that thing with Sterling silver, maybe they got that thing from Tiffany. I ain't got no idea. I just could not believe how small that trope he was. I think they was joking online and they were saying that you could find a better trophy on Amazon. Yes, you could. I've seen it. I've seen it. You can find it. This is the same year where they redid the All-Star Game MVP trophy as a tribute to Kobe. Steph looked like he had to bend his knees to raise that thing over his shoulder. Is WNBA trophy? Like, you could put that in a trophy case, but you really just gonna put that thing on a mantle. Like. Come on, man. Y'all can't do that, right? Even if you wanted to go a little bit too late, gender specific on it. Give them a plate like Wimbledon. You know what I'm saying? Give you something that you could hold up over your head. I feel like that should be the rule about the size of your trophy. Don't matter to circumstance. That thing got be big enough that you could hold it up over your head. That ain't what they gave though.

Bomani Dissects the Lakers' 'LeBron Era' with Domonique Foxworth

"It's so hard to talk about the Lakers and LeBron without people taking things and directions that as I start, I'm not necessarily trying to go to or did not want, right? But it happened to me because I do think there's something very interesting about this LeBron era, which by the way, has been four years. Like, those four years ran up on us pretty quick. LeBron spent 13 straight years where his teams got at least to the second round of the playoffs, right? You know, you got all those years with the finals, but at least the second round of the playoffs. He's been with the Lakers for four years. They've made the second round of the playoffs one time. They've missed the playoffs twice, but they got a championship, right? Now, it's an interesting championship because on one hand, it was in the bubble, you didn't get the parade, all of that stuff. All the other hand, it was the year that Kobe died, which I imagine comes with its own significance for the Lakers, but at least for me, as an unattached party, right? Like a party observing this from a distance. I would think this has been a little bit disappointing if I were a Lakers fan. That's how I would see this. It's just like, you want the championship and I guess there are more relevant than they used to be but normally when you're in a place like that, even if you are not winning the championship, you go into the Conference Finals. You go on to the NBA Finals, like you win these in this push. And that really isn't what this has been for the course of this four years. And I can't think of anything quite like that. Like somebody pulled up the stat for me that the only team in a ten year span to win a championship, but not make it out of the first round within that span where those mavericks, where they won the championship in 2011, and then around that didn't get past the first round. I haven't seen anything like those are the only examples that we have. And so Lakers fans that I'm Friends with, they haven't really enjoyed this as much as they thought they would. That's what I was thinking is you were saying you think it would be a disappointment. I think that we know, or at least anecdotally. It doesn't feel like Lakers fans on the tweets or in our life in our lives feel like they have really enjoyed this run. And that's I think not to get to like the analytics versus the kind of feel or trust your eyes, guys, but it feels like from a purely quantitative way to look at it. I would say I take a championship and three years of missing the playoffs over no championship in every year and the finals.

'Grave of the Fireflies' Brings the Firebombing of Kobe to Life

"When we sat down to watch this, I told my daughters, you have to see the very first line. You can not miss the very first thing that is spoken because I don't know about your house. I don't know about it in our listeners house, but when we put on a movie oftentimes, people are up, still getting popcorn or still getting a drink or just wandering around or on their phones or something, and because a lot of movies, to be honest with you, they take a while to really get going, but not this one grabs you right off the bat and the very first line is this. September 21st, 1945. That was the night I died. And you just kind of like, oh, okay, well that takes away the suspense of what's going to happen in the end. That say to the teenage boy who's speaking. And so in part one, we are taken into a subway, and it's after the war. On that day, shortly after the end of World War II, a young boy sits against a pillar at Sano Mia station and he's dying of starvation. People walk by expressing disgust about him and calling him a trap. Later that night, after he dies, janitor removes his body and digs through his possessions, finding nothing, but a candy tin containing ashes and a few fragments of bone, which he throws away into a nearby field. From the tin, springs the spirit of the young boy, followed by his little sister, along with the cloud of fireflies. The spirit of the young boy whose name is saita begins to tell the story of how he and his sister sets go fared in the wake of the firebombings of Kobe during the war. So what do you think, what were your thoughts about that opening part, Sean? I mean, it is very bleak. Yeah. This is not a particularly uplifting movie. No, but this is also a film from a different culture. Right. And there's different perspective on there's a different perspective on life and perception and on death. And on the afterlife. And so at the same time, we have, there's plenty of thumbs out there, you know, go watch sunset boulevard, there's plenty of American films about a character who's narrating what happened to them before they died. So this is not unique to Japan. But it is certainly it is a very realistic portrayal and depiction. The train station is a horrifying thing. Right. And we'll talk about this later. But yes, this certainly gets you and says, hey, this is something that really happened. And this is something that occurred. And then we start to go into the fantasy, but the reality is right there in front of you. At the beginning.

"Idea the layers of drama and some of the details in their road to the championship game, which I will not spoil here. I want people to read your book. There are things there where I'm like, this is a made for TV movie or this is or this is a script. This like some of the stuff that happens, just some unforeseen drama. And that story in itself, I feel like, you know, weird way all of these decades later as this kind of fun revelation, at least for me, who I thought I knew, you know, not necessarily think there was to know, but quite a bit. Well, I appreciate you picking up on that, Howard, because that was one of the two main narrative threads. And it was the one that my editor on the project really accented. He said, the road to the state championship is going to be the backbone of this book and this narrative. So I kind of kept that one in mind and then I kept the evolution of Kobe in mind as the other one. And that I could get into along the road to the state championship in some ways. But those were kind of the brackets that I had set up for myself. It was, okay, I've got to get lower Marion to the end of Kobe senior year as a basketball team. And then I've got to get Kobe from the sounds like we phrased this the right way. The book begins and ends with aircraft. The book begins with the helicopter crash and it ends with a plane landing. And I came up with that very early on in the process. So I had those two kind of lines of demarcation. I've got lower Marion, and I've got the helicopter crash in the plane landing. And those were kind of my guiding narrative post so to speak throughout the writing of the book..

"Of had this flaky personality. It was kind of a nardo, the kind of guy who'd missed the team bus to practice and things like that. So and then once his career ends, he's bitter about what happened. You know, I didn't get the shot. I should have gotten and Kobe hears this over time. And Kobe looks at his dad and says, I'm not going to be him. I'm not going to let what happened to my dad happened to me. I'm going to redeem the Bryant name when it comes to basketball. So you've got these two forces, right? You've got motivation from talent coming from the dad's side of things. And of course, the experience that comes with having been an NBA player. And you've got the mentality from Pam brine from the mom. And you put those together and I think that's where you get this melding and Kobe of the two. He had it within him, but then he has the environment and the upbringing that it kind of harnesses that desire in the way to make him the greatest player on the planet for a while. I mean, certainly in his work ethic, his dedication, his self discipline when it came to basketball, it seems to me that those are things that he or it's the course correction from Joe Bryant. There is a little bit of a, as you mentioned, dad was kind of flaky. Joe Bryant and his career probably maybe he was the wrong player at the wrong time and he would have been phenomenal in today's NBA as a 6 9 guy who could do it all out on the perimeter. But it seems to me that somewhere in there, Kobe finds a kind of he's got this north star and it drives him and focuses him in a way that maybe his father didn't have. It does go to the extreme. There's another passage again. Like some of these just strike me as, you know, if you want to look at them as, you know, here's a kid who just knew exactly what he wanted and how to get it. It's admirable, but it makes me sad to read some of these passages. Who was Kobe Bryant? I'm quoting your writing here. Who was Kobe Bryant during the spring and summer of 1994? He was a kid who had no free time because he wanted no free time. A kid who played in at least 6 basketball leagues in at least two basketball camps and traveled the east coast for AAU tournaments and it goes on to a few other details because there's more and more and then it finally ends with he was a kid obsessed..

"When you see yourself as being on a different plane from everybody else around you, it's going to make those connections more difficult. And you see that time and time again in his relationships with his peers at that age and his relationships with his adults. For instance, I'll give you a quick example, one of my kind of favorite anecdotes in the book is he had a friend named Matt Matt coffe who he met in 8th grade. I knew it was kind of the biggest cheerleader for Kobe among Kobe's group of friends. Matt cop was not nearly the basketball player that Kobe was. Obviously nobody would be at that level. But it wasn't even quite good enough to play in lower marines varsity team. By the time senior year rolls around, Gregg downer, the head coach at lower Marion and his coaching staff are debating, hey, are we going to have to cut mad cough from the team? And if we do, should we be worried about that? Because he's Kobe's best friend..

Like and subscribe for the best weekly NBA content these two are capable of. What does that mean? Could be the best duo ever. I don't see how you can beat that. Here they are. Chris mannix, and Howard back. Now, very pleased to be joined by the author of the rise Kobe Bryant and the pursuit of immortality. Use Mike seal ski Mike. How are you sir? Thanks for joining us. Howard, thank you so much for having me. I've been looking forward to this. Me as well very much. So, congratulations on the book. I read it cover to cover. Including every end note, no, I did not read all the notes. I otherwise read it cover to cover. It's beautifully written. Incredible details. And as you know, I covered Kobe for 7 years up close in LA. There was a lot here. I didn't know, but that's because you focused on a portion of Kobe's life that I feel like, while not unexamined, certainly not explored in the level of precision and detail that you did in this book. And so it was really just a phenomenal read. So congratulations on that and all the success to come behind it. We are, of course, as you and I speak nearing the two year mark since Kobe's death. A lot was said and written at the time, but that was, in fact, mostly about the Kobe we knew or thought we knew through the course of his NBA career. His public life, your book is like 99.9% before that. What is it that you want people to learn or understand about Kobe Bryant pre NBA pre fame really? So a couple things. First of all, thanks for having me. Second of all, I do remember the immediate aftermath of Kobe's death. And I remember reading your piece for bleacher report about Kobe. And I would say this even if I weren't talking to you right now, I thought your piece was the best of all the obituary tributes, you know, it was really well done really beautiful. So kudos to you for that..

"What up? It's the crossover pod, Friday edition. We are coming up on a very sad anniversary. This Wednesday January 26th will mark two years since the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant. His daughter Gigi and 7 others, I wanted to remember and celebrate Kobe's life in some way on this podcast that felt appropriate and I can think of no better way than to bring on my guest today, Mike sesky, who is the author of a new book about Kobe's life, but especially Kobe's formative teenage years and Mike's book takes us there in a way that I don't think any other book has to date and there have been, of course, a lot of books about Kobe Bryant. The book's called the rise, Kobe Bryant, and the pursuit of immortality, it takes us into Kobe's upbringing in Italy, his move with his family to lower Marion township, Pennsylvania, when he was 13 and throughout his entire high school years, I can't recommend it highly enough. There are quotes from Kobe in this book that we've never seen or heard until now because they were recorded back in 1996 97, Kobe's rookie year and never saw the light of day until now. The why and the how of that is fascinating. The book explains it and Mike steel ski will explain it during our chat. If you've been listening to me for a while, you know, I open every podcast and have an opening all of my podcasts since before this one with some version of what up and that's because of Kobe. If you heard me over the years on Zack Lowe's podcast, you know he greets me every time with what up Beck because as Zach recalled back when I first started going on a show, he recalls a moment during the 2011 NBA lockout, a player meeting in midtown Manhattan at a hotel, dozens of players are filtering through the lobby of the Sheraton hotel and Kobe strolls through at one point and sunglasses on looking coolest can be and as he passes by the gathered media contingent waiting for them. He sees me and says simply what up Beck? I didn't recall that moment, but Zach loved it, kind of mentally filed it away, introduced to me one day with it on his pod and it sort of stuck ever since. And so when I started my own podcast in 2017, I decided to incorporate it myself a little subtle homage to Kobe. I covered Kobe up close for 7 years from 1997 to 2004, got to know him. As well as a reporter can, given the professional limitations and the nature of the job. And I still learned so, so much from Mike seals, he's new book about those formative years of Kobe's life. His teenage years really enjoyed the book really enjoyed the chat with Mike. I think you will as well. Okay, my conversation with Mike sesky is coming up next. So.

"Banks helix okay. I'll let you. I'll let you Redeem yourself while more time before we go okay. Kobe put up. How many points when he won the nba. All star game. Mvp in twenty eleven by helping the western conference defeat the eastern conference slough. I do not remember. that is it. I'll give you the numbers okay. Twenty eight thirty two thirty seven or forty four again. It's probably one of the high to. I'll go thirty seven. Thirty seven is correct. They get a little harder now. Actually all right. Let's keep going. Let's see what happens. Specific points scored in an all star game level of obscurity. Okay in his twenty year career. How many all defensive teams did. Kobe make eleven. No eleven's okay. Eleven not an option. There are eight ten twelve and fourteen eight ten or fourteen. I'll go twelve then. Seems reasonable correct. Which former legend from the lakers do kobe pass. Twenty ten to become the all time leading scorer for the franchise. He passed a laker legend. Oh to become the leading. Score for the lakers. Yeah in what year two thousand ten. Tell me if you want the The options will be like elgin. Baylor jerry west will chamberlain kareem or something very close. There's one other one. That's not kareem. Not jerry west elgin baylor or not wilt chamberlain. You got the other three. What was the magic. That's right magic. Magic on the lakers for a while but he was more of an assist guy. I think it might have been jerry west. I'll say jerry west. It's correct ou. These are getting harder. I like it. Yeah and the two thousand five to two thousand six nba season. Kobe averaged thirty five point. Four points per game to take home his first scoring title. Who did he beat out for scoring that title. Wow okay. that's a great question number two in scoring in two thousand five two thousand six. Yeah interesting is iverson one of those not not that i'm saying iverson is the answer but does that is one of the is one of the three is lebron. What are the options. Lebron's another one. Is vince carter. One of the options. No dwayne wade one of the options. Yes so i've probably named like number two three and four and just can't remember who finished second two thousand. Let's go lebron. I'm sure he averaged over. Thirty is third or fourth year. So you don't want to give paul pierced. I do not. I would never get the celtic that. I'm hoping it's not him. And it is lebron correct. How many games did bryant play in the twenty thirteen to twenty fourteen seasons when fans still elected him to the all star game. Twenty thirty one thirty one is not available there. Six fifteen twenty three and thirty. Let's go thirty but it might be number six games. How that's awesome those nudist cool yet. What year did kobe win his second. Nba scoring title. Guess the year after two thousand five two thousand six. The next available in is two thousand seven. There's also eight nine ten. Let's go two thousand seven correct. But now i'm really just guessing here. Great educated guesses. Let's so to more okay. When did kobe win his first of four. Nba all star game. Mvp's was it. Nineteen ninety nine two thousand two thousand and one or two thousand two. Yeah this one. I don't know either. This might have been when. He was booed and philadelphia for winning the all-star mvp in two thousand one is my guess two thousand and two. Kobe scored a series high. Thirty eight points in which game of the twenty ten nba finals gave. Who i was gonna say game seven. But i don't think it was. I think everybody was struggling. Game seven But like why would they say it. If it's game six. God are the options game. Four five six and seven there two four five and seven. Gimme game seven. Let's go for a game. Five excess a whole lot of sense. How many questions are on this quiz. There are actually. I thought there were a lot more this is. We're on the last question last question. We did it. How many years did it take kobe to become a full time. Starter for the lakers Y two three or four. I'll say two three interesting all star but not a starter good on him third season. Yeah wow i think i mean i learned a lot site can only imagine how much you learned. I knew most of that. The all star game stuff to the draft thing was and i and i think everyone listening heard you get a little tripped up so that one. I can't deny all the other ones. I basically a new. I wasn't sure. If it was paul pierce or lebron james leading the second leading into thousand five six but then i did remember that paul pierce an mc l. early part of that season. So i should have known and and yeah and was the third leading scorer obviously and tween. That's all right sweep. Finally a quiz. I can excel at feels good. Thanks for administering. Thanks for listening. I'm sure wardak soon enough and next week with another classic episode of testing testing. Is this thing good. Nice was a hit dumber original..

But obviously his daughter was on that helicopter as well. There were several other people and children on that helicopter. And and you know. Sometimes we kind of forget about it was more than just him you know. And it's it's just it's just hard to believe because what you think is. Is that when you're a superstar celebrity and your ultra wealthy and you have access to that sort of technology. Well you're as safe as can possibly be. I mean it could have been cloudy that morning and it could have been dangerous. And if kobe would have said to me. Let's go. i would have gone okay as long as you assign ya. Not giving them the second thought. Yeah you know i remember. I was on the radio in saint louis when this all went down kobe's last game and i was almost getting in fistfights because i still don't know how to approach this with people. Who do this whenever you bring up kobe. They bring up the negative. I they bring up the thing like you said that almost changed his life. What happened in colorado. They always bring that up. I and i'm like it's his last game. Why do we have to spend twenty minutes talking about x. y. z. But i wind up looking like you. The grotesque like i'm dismissing. What happened. no. It's i get it happened but can't we just appreciate his last game. He's got he's got sixty points in his last game. Can't we just appreciate that. Some people want to bring up the negative constantly. They're not the kobe fans. Obviously hey demarco. We're just getting going here on a tuesday afternoon.

Mcmahon oh or dave chapelle underrated overrated overrated under. Pick one for each I'll go. Dave chapelle easily underrated. I that guy is. I still don't think we've seen the best of him. Yeah he's so talented. And i don't care if he talks for nine hours. Yeah i'm there. I'm in i'm involved. I'm i'm engrossed He's funny he's he's very now he's everything i guess. I'll go. Vince mcmahon overrated. I hate even saying that. Because he put wrestling on the map He's a genius when it comes to that business. But when's the last time you watch the wrestling match. When's the last time you cared about wrestling. Goes eight years old. Been a minute. Yep that's what you watch cap you watch wrestling but you won't watch anything else. Last night i watched a little bit of wrestling i I wanted to see what was going on. It's monday night raw. And i decided i wanted to check on wrestling because last week we had a full conversation demarco. Who's your favorite wrestler from your childhood. All time yeah. Well i mean this is a whole 'nother show it used to be the hulk. Yeah and then. I can't like him anymore. So it's either the rock or stone cold. Oh well see. I was a little further deep into my my wrestling history. I would not the road. The american role heck yeah to come on l. air. Yeah so so for me. I'm gonna go the opposite here. you know. i like dave chapelle. I will watch any comedy special. The dave chapelle puts out any one of them He does one thing that is. I'm a huge stand up comedy fan. He does one thing that bothers me when he tells a joke and he delivers the punchline. He hits the microphone as if to say to me. That was the punchline and it drives me nuts. And i'm a huge stand up comedy fan so i like chapelle very much. But in this equation overrated underrated. I'm going with vince. Mcmahon is underrated because there is no pro wrestling in twenty. Twenty one. Without vince mcmahon. And by the way this isn't new there's been going on for thirty five forty years. Vince mcmahon is a multi-billionaire incredible business guy because of what he did with pro wrestling. And so in this equation. i'm going vince. Under and dave chapelle over all right everyone has their own alright. Not right not the popular opinion. Sign everyone. that's your choice. This is actually a pretty tough one this. I thought this was a tougher one. The normal alright cap. Jared dudley who cal- kuzma has said is the best teammate. He has ever had. And it's not close is leaving the lakers to become an assistant coach with the mavericks. Lebron found out and replied to a tweet. A tweet from real with this congrats to my guy. If this is true which it probably is it ended up being but man and then he wrote out the word that the a bad word that starts with an f. I don't that i'm not gonna say. Oh my gosh. Thank you laura. Say fudge this response from lebron overrated underrated. I'm going to say it's underrated for this reason. I thought lebron and jared dudley. We're tight. And i thought jared dudley was kind of like lebron's backup quarterback sort of his valet you know. Sort of his go-to guy. Take care of the little things. Because jared dudley can't help you win anymore as a ball player in uniform but he can help you with so many other things in your life and off the floor..

"kobe" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin

"Yeah let's do it. Sodano and cap demarco is in big night tonight for the dodgers and padres in a big day around l. a. Today mom day demarco. What is good man. Same old stuff listening to that call on the way in. I'd never heard it. I'd never heard the michael. John call about Kobe's last game. I did get emotional. I saw it on tv. I'd love to see that with the video that coal like they go into youtube. I'm doing it now. I want to hear that and see that at the same time that was that was awesome. Yeah yeah i mean listen. It's yesterday was the birthday. Today is eight twenty four and You know people can help really demarco get emotional because you have to be just purely a laker fan to be a kobe fan. You know and and i know listen. I don't mean to to get cheesy about it. But seriously like in my in my life i think to myself i didn't call it. The mamba mentality probably a year plus ago but now anything that includes like determination grit heart effort ambition etc. I i now refer that as mamba mentality. i don't know about you. I i do Every time i walked up a piece of paper or a straw wrapper and you know. Shoot it into the basket. Kobe for three. It just comes out. You know what i mean. I have my daughter doing it. She's never seen him play and she does it. She has no idea who kobe. Bryant is except for picture and a couple of posters. But she does it so yeah just a huge deal and what a huge deal just. Kobe bryant going out with a sixty you know. Wasn't it autumn coming back to win a game in his last game tremendous. You couldn't write that any better. Yeah i met a guy the other day i was. I talked about this just the other day. But i was at the del mar racetrack on saturday and i met a young guy and on my i'm scott. What's your name and he goes. I'm kobe and i'm like you're kidding. Me no and i'm like wow like what a name and you'd probably they're probably lots of other kobe's out there now. I don't have the guts do you. Oh gosh no. I mean would you have the guts to name your son koby. That'd be like my kid. michael. Jordan kaplan yes. You know how. 'bout michael kobe. Far better come home with all as all the time right and win every right. That'd be new when everything well demarco. We've got a long day. And i say a long day a good day. Great day as a matter of fact ahead of us and tonight i. I'm really excited about this. The dodgers and the padres tonight. We'll talk about kobe the afternoon. Progressives but i gotta ask you. Did you happen to see the news from earlier today. That a small plane. And i'm gonna call it crash but it's really it was an emergency. Landing is probably a better phrase. A small plane had an emergency landing. On the southbound five in north san diego and i bring this up to you because i'm seeing a lot of dodger fans on twitter saying this is the way the padres are attempting to shut out the dodger fans from showing up at the game. Wow land plane on i five. Wow are you serious. I didn't see this real. I swear to. You is totally true story for anybody. That hasn't seen this yet. There was a really small plane. I don't know all the details of what kind of plane it was. It was a really small plane and the pilot somehow got into distress and had to put the plane down and literally landed the plane on the five southbound. This is in del mar so north gig. Yeah yeah i got it and so here you have tonight. Demarco this huge game. When i say huge i would say dodger fans are not necessarily feeling like this is such a huge series whereas the padre fans are feeling like this is it. The whole season comes down to this. Because the last time these two teams played which was in mid june the padres actually swept the dodgers and between then and now it's been a whole different world where the dodgers have gone tear. The padres have fallen apart and if the padres have any chance of putting their season back together it has to start against the dodgers. The dodgers are probably feeling like well. We don't even know who their pitcher is. We've never even heard of pierce johnson. We thought he was a double o seven actor. So i'm really excited about this series. And i think it's because for waiting. Are you excited or nervous. Because i'm here in a little bit of nerves there. Well i would say because i think i think you're doing the dodgers a disservice. If you dismiss the padres because of how poorly they played really. I really do. This is still a great rivalry. They still have a lot to play for. The wild card is within reach. So if you're a big blue big blue fan heading down on the five are you. Are you happy now laura. I everybody in the nuts. When i said i five so the five and you almost get a plane landed on your roof if you think this is going to be a sweep and easy sweep for the dodgers. I you got another thing coming. They're battling for their playoff lives. They're trying to save their jobs down there in san diego. Well i feel this way. I feel like the padres. This is make or break because you lost three out of four arizona and you got no hit by a pitcher making his major league debut you got swept by the colorado rockies. So you're in the middle of a playoff race and you're letting the teams beneath you sweep you or no hit you. You got major problems. Then you come home. And you've got philadelphia. And they take to edit three from the padres in san diego. Here's my thought. My thought is the dodgers should not just win this series. The dodgers should sweep this and the dodgers should be thinking of themselves while you know the padres were feeling real good. They won seven out of ten against the dodgers so far this year. They swept them last time they played in san diego. And it's like we're going down there to put it to him. That's what i would be selling. If i were dave rob's well you know what if they do. Then i o travis and greg an apology for being delusional. If you go down there and sweep the padres and you close ground on san francisco at least in theory. You actually have a chance to pull this thing off like winning. The west is actually possible. If you can go down there and sweep san diego if that's actually true. That's the dodgers squad that's down there then. I owe you guys a big fat apology now. I'm not. I was shocked to hear this from you. Dead serious article on this. Yeah yeah you're right. Look it's two and a half games with what is it. Thirty seven games left to play there right there. There's a all it takes a couple of games and they play the giants three times so that could be. That could change everything right there. You sweep the giants which is not easy but if you sweep the giants urine first place even if nothing changes until then so i mean it's still very much in the dodgers hands of what they're gonna do. But i want to tell you guys that i was going back today and i was looking at some numbers..

"I disagree with you on your on your tv deal. I think they gotta do something. They just can't let texas and oklahoma turned merge into the super conference and not do anything they're going to get hammered and i think that basically if you're army is understaffed you gotta make a bigger army. And when i was in. When i was in high school. I went on a recruiting trip to michigan and that was one of the schools i thought about going to actually verbally committed to them and then they ended up pulling scholarship because somebody else went and they didn't want me and all that but Like that is such a great experience there like the big ten is awesome. The big ten is a great read. Venue just make it better. I don't think so i- michigan just needs to get better. Jim harbaugh needs to make that program. Better you go to a game in the big house and they play ohio. It was it was good enough all those years. Just have a better program. Get your branding and in line with with the other. Sec programs go out and hire whoever you have to hire or do whatever it takes to make those programs better Y sister mary the ports. What are the who they gonna play. They count on those paydays. San diego state counts on the that opportunity to play. Ucla every once in a while or play against san jose plays against stanford every year. They count on those opportunities to take on the. The david goliath games. Those are those regional matchups. Where once every ten years those. Those smaller programs are going to win. I always laugh when when you put a small. I mean sure. They win every once in a while but ninety percent of the time. It's just a paycheck game. it's just. They're basically setting up their kids for failures and get a million dollar check. I think the the games are going to be better the scheduling going to be better. We'll be interesting to see what happens with the ncaa basketball turning now. you know. 'cause five conferences basically decided to have their own tournament. It could be the end of march madness. I think it's it's something it's worth keeping an eye on because we're only focused on it with football but it does have much bigger up implicate. Anything that makes money will be affected by this sportsman. Ramona are never going to be the same. I was the name image like this thing. And now there's these conferences and by the way lindsay had a good point you curbs. We talked about this today. We'll play herbstreet when we come back. I think this might be the end of the. Ncaa will also spin the wheel of questions. That's coming up. Ramon information reminder at three o'clock today make sure you're here in honor of kobe. Mama day we're gonna play the end of his last game if you've never heard it it's like it's out of a movie that at some point during we're do that right at three o'clock mason and ireland seven ten. Espn this week. It's momo in ireland. Ramona shelburne filling in for mace. As he's on. I know it's shocking. Another vacant but remember we were talking about this new alliance between the ncaa will between the pac twelve the big ten and the there's the alliance music you don't think there's much to it. I think it's gonna change college. Sports maybe forever. One person who agrees with me is kirk herbstreit. now lindsey. He was on was this on. Pat mcafee showed that herbie was on. He was on pat mcafee show and this was actually a couple of days ago before they announced this alliance thing so i think he because he's connected that hurts. We knew it was coming. Here's street and as to the significance of what we just saw announced about an hour ago. I could sit here and bs in. Come tell you. This is what i think's going to happen. But i think right now. I don't know if the conference commissioners no it's going to happen. It feels like that were headed to four premiere. Big huge sixteen team conferences. And it feels like those four conferences maybe will pull away one day from the ncwa. Go out and hire a commissioner wherever that might be just kinda create their own world. I don't think he's wrong. Ramon i've been saying for years the. Ncaa are the keystone cops. They can't get out of their own way. They almost always make the wrong decision. What they did to usc several years ago was unconscionable when they knew that everybody in the sec was cheating and they kneecapped usc. Just because mike garrett was a jerk right. I think the ncaa has been on thin ice for years. And i agree with herbie that i think these conferences are just going push put out. What do you think that the ncaa will eventually go in the sense that it just doesn't make any sense anymore. It really doesn't. They haven't really sort of been a toothless tiger for a long time and it doesn't make sense after the national image likeness What does the name image likeness. I always say that wrong roles ruled came about. Because i i was really r- this is one of those things where me being older. I don't get where all the advertising opportunities. Where i i assume that when the nfl stuff came out the it was mostly going to affect the quarterback of alabama or the quarterback of florida. Well it did it did. But it's also helping the girls volleyball player from indiana. Or you know just anybody marketable good-looking really. Yeah when they got a tick tock following or instagram following and a lot of those. A lot of those folks are not people you you and me have ever heard of but they have hundreds of thousands of instagram followers. That now they can make money off of and that definitely feels like more of a game changer. Especially when. I know a lot of people in the college sports industry where and even professional agents like all the big agencies now are starting a division for for name image and likeness people whether it's a college athlete or a or professional athlete. And their you. You start recruiting people. When they're fourteen now right fifteen fourteen like this is how it's going to start what's to say we. We only start this in college. No it's going to be when they're in high school too. So why should they worry about. They don't even need to play high school sports. It's gonna change everything. And i think that these super conferences are just a byproduct of that okay. It's every day. At this time we spend the wheel a question linnet..

"O'clock ramona. Were you at kobe's last game. The sixty points per game courtroom. I guess is you've never heard michael and i call the into that game have you. I might have heard it when we played it back but okay so we played it back twice before we played it back right after it happened. We played the whole game like three nights later and then we. Kobe passed away. We played the game again at three o'clock today. We're gonna play the very end of the game. We'll put the last three minutes It was the honor of our careers. For michael i to describe what happened. It was kobe's love letter to the laker fans as they as he said goodbye in his final game. It is when you listen to it. You you know the reaction we always get is. I never knew. I could feel that way. You know blah blah we and and so on monday we get a lot of requests for it will do it at three. O'clock spread the word for people who have never heard it. The end of the game were kobe. Basically takes it over and on his way to soaring sixty points a record by the way which will never be broken. No one will ever score sixty points in the final game of their career. It just it hadn't happened before. I don't think it'll ever happen since. What do you remember about that night more than anything else. I remember afterwards. While i was sitting there watching and we all just couldn't believe it. Because he got to forty. And we're like whoa. Maybe he's going to get to fifty and then he got to fifty. We're like maybe he's going to get to sixty. But i think the thing. I remember the most of all as after the game of talking to horace grant because they had all his former teammates. And all of them you can. If you can think of a teammate. Even guys only played that one year. Gary payton was there from other teams. Baron davis was there. There was like just everybody who had played with him and all in the front row in front row. Shack derek fisher. Everybody and and horace goes. He took fifty shots. It would've taken me like four weeks to take fifty shots fifty in that game and it was as memorable a night as and by the way we. I had greg bergman that night walking around used to called the third chair and we looked around and rather than trying to decide who were going to put in the third chair. You know we grab a celebrity and have them call part of the second quarter with us because frankly back in those teams weren't very good and we wanted to up the entertainment value of the broadcast. And so we always had some fun. You know everybody. From andy garcia to jeanie buss to the cast the big bang theory. You know we justin bieber up there once jack black up there once. You know ramona week. Couldn't decide there were so many celebr- knees in the crowd that night. We decide who to bring up there. So we got bergman to take a portable microphone headset and just walk up to people around the building. That's cool and and he got everybody. He got jack. Nicholson we allow. Nicholson on before. And jack did like two three minutes with and you know i was really proud of great because we just basically said to him. Look don't be afraid if anyone tells you know. I think every this is a party. It's a celebration. I think everybody you ask is going to say yes and sure enough. You know arsenio hall snoop dog. And nicholson andy garcia and dust. And everybody said yes. And we just started mixing them into the broadcast. Until the end of the game the lakers were trailing by fifteen and the game had pretty much been decided and kobe. Just said screw it. I'm taking over well also. They kept passing him. The ball mean coda said afterwards. It's like i was forced to keep shooting like they just kept making shoot and and and in the it's the most koby game of all though fifty shots one game like like his career. Everybody said you shoot too much take shot your and then in his last game. They're forcing him to shoot. It's great so we will get to all of that and again at three o'clock you'll hear the end. What it sounded like that night when michael called the end of kobe's career. We're gonna run that right at three o'clock we've put together at ten minutes of the end of that game that we think you'll like so in. That's all in honor of day but let's circle back room and and so obviously we've got a ton of stuff to cover. Let's circle back to the dodgers who have this huge series tonight opening san diego. Tonight's game and tomorrow night's game both nationally televised on. Espn right now. The dodgers are chasing the giants or two and a half the giants in the national league west but if they don't catch the giants they'll host the wildcard game. They're like ten games up in the wildcard but who they play could be determined over the next three nights right now. The season ended today they would play the reds cincinnati has the second wildcard spot. One game ahead of the padres. The padres ramona literally loaded up in the offseason spent hundreds of millions of dollars to try and compete with the dodgers in the national league. West they. They went out and got blake snell. They went out and got you darvish. They went out and basically grow right. They loaded up their pitching rotation they. They made trades at the all star break. They picked up an all star. Second baseman from the pirates. They they've done everything they can do behind the scenes to try and catch the dodgers. But it's not working. They fired their pitching coach over the weekend. They now find themselves trailing the reds by a game if ramona the dodgers could sweep the padres and by the way the dodgers are going to try it tonight. They're pitching julio ludicrious tomorrow night. They're pitching walker bueller and thursday night. They're pitching max scherzer. So that the dodgers have lined up their pitching rotation to try and knock the padres out if they do it. How big of a deal is that. Momo and european huge i mean the dodgers went thirteen. They're pass over the past fifteen games out of ten and picked up only a game and a half on on the giants. I mean that's how tough this race is right now. The giants are really good. We've been all waiting for them to fade the whole time. When you thirteen to fifteen and you only pick up a game and half that is demoralizing so for that for the for the dodgers is to me the ga- the series where they can really swing it. They got swept the last time. I play the padres and the padres are much better at home than they are on the road. So this is a really tough series if they get swept here if they lose two out of three we incredibly tough to catch in san francisco. will not only that. It'll be tough for the dodgers san francisco but if the padres gas wept i think positions the reds basically to play the dodgers in the wildcard game And and i did not want to one game playoff. Anything could happen and the reds have a have a pretty formula lineup to padres have a brutal schedule down the whole time i was just gonna bring that up the toughest schedule of any team in major league baseball so if they were to get swept it would be devastating to the padre and they play the dodgers the giants the astros the braves and the cardinals down the stretch all posts. An all teams have figured to be in the postseason. So it's it's a huge series tonight. Seven o'clock in san diego by the way. You've been in that ballpark. Petco so fun. It is maybe the nicest stadium in the big leagues. It's it's right in the middle of the gasoline quarter in san diego. It is. I know a lot of dodger fans are gonna make the trip down there. The dodgers travel very well especially for padres and giant games. Should be very fun to watch tonight tomorrow. Night thursday night and again tonight tomorrow night walker bueller and thursday max scherzer so the the dodgers are going for it. They're going to try and do this now..

"And and that to this day i just i just think of that picture of coming in and seeing him and just the realization of what had happened to going. Oh my gosh you've got to be kidding me. This little dog did all this work to get to the carrot cake. so able table decide. I'm done yeah almost like as a cartoon right of rolling over with this huge belly but like mild like well not my even my intensely satisfied with himself what he had accomplished but now wising how uncomfortable he was like it. Just all of those emotions being communicated in his in his eyes some some place to meet. Act out on the floor near. Yes yes. I do need a little bit of assistance and i need to go take a nap. Yeah and then after we had had our first child. You know you you kind of get in the motions of of caring for your your baby and part of that is using diaper wipes and wiping up a mess and throwing them in the trash and we had just done that we had Dan left kobe inside. And because we need to run some errands and when we came back We noticed. Kobe was kind of laying funny. And we couldn't quite figure it out and the next day He went he went poop. And when i looked This little thing was hanging out from the back. And i went and i pulled it out. And it was a full diaper. Wipe and i ran back inside in realized he'd eaten about six. Defer y ou out of the trash can and so over the next couple days. We got our diaper whites. We got all of them given back to us We counted them all and make sure they were all. There was one of those things where he was obviously very. He was very happy with what he had done but then realizing he was also very uncomfortable ever come back after being outside and rolled in anything interesting. You know not that we know of we have. There was one time where we were wa. Came with him on the leash. And he's a he's when we do go on walks he's not a. I'm going to walk. Walk walk walk. He's a definitely. I'm going to sniff every seven seconds and every seven feet seven seven inches To to figure out what's going on and so we're used to him stopping and smelling things and He was doing that by this bush.

"Kobe definitely takes more of a. This is my house dominance thing. I mean he's a dachshund so he's not going to be he's not overly dominant but he lets them know where his spot is and where his toys r. or his pillow is When he goes over to other dogs homes he's definitely in the curiosity mode and kind of plays by their house rules More than ever they are over here. but He always finds the most Cushion ever that he can find. We call it he. No kobe loved. Softness is what the kids are kids. Stay a lot and it's true. If there are three pillows on the floor and one by itself in two or stacked on top of each other he will go and sit on top of those two pillows that are stacked on top of each other so he can have most softness so during sort of out about what sort of environment disease look usual. Sort of luck walker outside space. Look so we do go on walks throughout the week Not every day and he and as kobe has aged He has started to develop a some back problems. you can tell it's it's sore and nothing has there's no been no slipped disc or anything degenerating at this point. He's just getting older right. And so you can kind of tell that long walks aren't exactly his thing anymore and we're trying to protect his backing and keep him healthy So he will go out into our backyard and on our back deck and lay in the sun and just lay there. He loves especially now. It's getting warmer here. And finding sunshine is one of why when he's not finding the softest place to sit he is trying to find sunniest place to sit and warm himself up and go out in the tall grass or on the concrete even in hill kind of move himself and can't self regulate the temperature as he's se sunbathing in some basking But when we go on walks He's still very interested in in everybody coming alongside and when we meet other people you know he. He doesn't bark Actually just comes up to them and asks for attention and Is is always greeted others.

"So michael. The year after. Kobe and the lakers beat the sixers in the nba finals. Kobe comes back to philly and he seems excited to try to reconnect with his hometown. Fans the all star game in philadelphia in. It's like a dream come true for kobe. To be home to be an all star to be at the top to be a champion a two time champion. No less at that point going for three in a row. He wore his dad's number. Twenty three throwback jersey imon everything to him and so he knew he was gonna go out there and put on a show in front of his hometown fans at least we thought were hometown fans and he scored thirty one points. One all star game. Mvp tonight with thirty one points. Five rebounds and five assists the star of stars of the greatest players in the world was in two thousand two. Mvp kobe brian hobie is holding the mvp trophy in fans are loudly. Booing him they are blowing him to the point where they wanted him to know how much they disliked him and he was crushed. Mona's are on our is out there trying to play and have a good time. Also i heard talked to people who said that after the gain at kobe had to be consoled because he has such a deep affection and love of philadelphia and appreciation for philadelphia. He knows that everything that he is a basketball player because of philadelphia and he wanted to give philadelphia to show any did and i think for the rest of his career. It always deng. He was rejected in the most public way possible. And despite it all you know koby really did love philly.
