I've Hired Several Coaches, but No Improvements. What's Wrong With Me?

"Hey i've hired three business coaches. They've all felt like a waste of time and money. And i haven't seen any improvements what's going on. There's something wrong with me. My doing this wrong. what's happening. Well i want to answer this question to make sure i also address. Everybody was listening. That my have a similar question thinking about hiring a coach or have higher coach. Maybe didn't see the results are looking for on a star by saying i have gone through this several times. I've hired coaches have a lot of experience. And not all. My experiences with coaches have been the same. I i have to say a quick If you have a coach if you hire a coach and they give you instructions if they give you a action items to do a plan and you don't implement you actually do the work it doesn't matter. What kind of coach you have. You have to actually follow through. So i know this kind of obvious but a lot of people i've met along the way have hired coaches and ask them. How's it working out like not so great as it will. What does the coach advising you to do. All of they're telling me to do xyz. We'll have you done xyz and they're like a not really not sure. If i should and that really is the biggest red flag for me when it comes to hiring a coach. Don't go down the road of hiring a coach if you're don't a hundred percent trust this coach and believe what they say you should do is worth doing because the whole point of hiring coaches saying. Hey i'm allowing somebody else to advise me on how to move forward. And i'm willing to do what i need to do to make. It happen very similar in sports. You know one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time is phil jackson. He coached michael. Jordan scottie pippen but he also coached the lay kobe bryant shaquille o'neal a lotta great players but these players would not be great would not achieve their level of excellence if they didn't allow themselves to be coached if they allow themselves to follow through. And do what the coaches asking them to do.

Tiger Woods Faces An Uncertain Future

"Also brennan. It's currently a little bit before eight pm eastern on tuesday night and we need to say obviously that this story is still developing but as of now. What do we know about the car accident involving tiger woods. Well at this point based on the press conference held by the los angeles sheriff's department and various reporting tiger woods was driving at what was potentially too high speed around a area in los angeles county. That had a pretty severe bend in the road. The vehicle travel several hundred feet from the center. Divider at the intersection and rested on the west side of the road. In the brush is seven fifteen in the morning. Local time in la reissued ended up on. Its sire and there's a picture of the car holy cow and needed to be pried from. The viewpoint was removed by paramedics wielding axes to which is to use for prying and we also use an to pry him from the vehicle he was taken from the coat with see a caller backboard for Spinal precautions was responsive at the time of standard and resume wait. He was removed from the scene on a backboard rushed to nearby hospital and a trauma center. As of now no evidence of any impairment. There was no evidence of impairment so subsequent to that we're not gonna make any There was no effort to draw blood for example at the hospital so as of now it seems like a really bad accident. What do we know about. Tiger woods is health at the moment. Will he was brought to the hospital. Underwent surgery mark steinberg agents said there's multiple leg injuries. It has been said that there are potential fractures in his legs. But the big thing that was kind of noteworthy coming out of that press conference was. Everyone's saying he's lucky to get out of his life. He was wearing a seat belt. But it's bad and it could have been a whole lot worse when we first heard this news and didn't know really any details and just saw the photos of the car. I think a lot of us flashed back to just over a year ago with kobe. Bryant's helicopter accident also. La did you also have that immediate reaction i did. It was eerily similar. Do you remember where you were when you heard about kobe bryant. I think everyone will remember today. This was kind of one of those moments so it was only about fifty five sixty miles or so from where kobe's helicopter crash was so definitely. I had that kind of haunting feeling. I think a lot of people did. How has the gulf world reacted to this new. So far fellow players golf officials the best way i could describe. It is a lot of people holding their breath not only for his health. But for what happened. I mean i'm sick to my stomach hurts to see one ear seven now. My closest friends know getting an accident. And i just hope he's all right just is weird. I kids you know ensure the struggle. It's been a journey with tiger woods and a lot of people have kind of come to a level of cognitive dissonance of balancing the man and the myth and the realities of the scandals that he's been involved with and the amazing greatness and today seeing kind of the juxtaposition between this and his crash in two thousand nine tigers wife of five years zealand nordgren told police she heard the crash and used a golf club to break the rear window and pull him out of the locked vehicle. Young raveling of this public persona. That was very much kind of construct when it comes tiger woods. This perfect person was perfect.

"What does it take for the north of getting that conversation? Another star Wang what he was saying but what they have to see the problem with them is they have so much young talent and somebody's going to happen. This is because there's no stars on the market. That's your the trade in Michael Porter Jr. Gary Harris Monique Beasley or something. Like that. 'CAUSE YOU'RE GONNA have to pay a lot of these two who yes. Yes yeah well. Yeah you Yokich Jamal. Murray and like a Bradley beal the somebody like that. Then you you're going to have some some decent and you are going to have the the pieces. To`recreate is a guy that can start a game. You don't have to hold it down for a while you might say. Moore's is a guy that can come off the bench. Give them a lease have wheel barred and they have things that they can work with which is another reason why. I don't understand why they feel scared a little bit. I know nothing right now is probably to available for now when the time does come. I think I really WANNA see down executed. Make a move to get an umbrella. You could kind of use this year's test you to see what you really need when you when the playoffs come and you see your maybe exposed defense because joe-marie can't play. You might need a better defender to take on those assignments something like that because you think about this is GonNa. That'd be their second year of playing play basketball last year very first time and I think at the end of the day there's always going to be like a top three see but they're never going to be looked at it serious. It's like they got young league so they're gonNA play in regular season. Nobody's going to be on management. They are good team You're going to play basketball but yet it comes down to that playoff basketball a little different right now they play. They will play the rockets. And I'm pretty sure they will be done to dog last underdog in every series that they played they might not be doggedness. Series is because they have the rockets aren't truly figure it out but it's the rock. They have their punch where they can hit. They can hit them hard. Hit Them I. I may end up with if that was pick nuggets in that one. Are they all go. Rock is just because Russ and heart and as the. Yeah I I only because the ride is GonNa have they could have a couple of games. Josh is now following them but the the nuggets had the fourth. beat you up inside legitimate system system that has been working years. Could be struggling to shoot while the Mug in easy buckets. 'cause they're gonNa you know back to the bed. I just like to I like Jeremy. Grant Paul millsap Jimmy. Here's Mason Plumlee hoops as well. Yep you know. Maliki cheesy is a shot. Make your mentioned Jeremy Great. He's going to be one of those dudes it's going to be the switch onto James Harden those pick and rolls very seen that with with the thunder. Because there's there's there's a lineup yoga's hasn't been bad defensively the Caesar but like as far Switz- ability goes you can run. Paul MILLSAP Jeremy Grant Together. And then you're you're switchable Jabbour every aspect against the against the rockets. Yeah Yeah I think it would be hard for them to go. Like would their line without Yoga's thanks. I understand I understand that. Just because he is a mass offensively but I think the numbers say that like I know Yoga's attest may not be great like he's in passing lanes a lot. He gets a lot deflections but the numbers I say they like their team defensively so much better with him on the court which is so beautiful things leader defensively like he sees everything has visions rate. So he's probably Briley barking out by a screen coming back door with it also plays into great great events halfway through the season who your top three teams to watch. Let's go away like this team's playing a you know one hundred percent that you wanNA watch math math. That's a pig because Lucas Lucas Lucas's so fun to watch the grizzlies eighteen degrees out there. I like watching the pills watching pills. The PELICANS are getting even before. Like I'll just like it. was somebody watching interrupt. I'll actually take the raptors over the heat okay. I don't mind watching the jazz three from each from each gazelle put his. These are taking about seventy six. You know like watching the I do not like watching the both. Because it's the first half a basket has here seventy sixers pacers and then I'll probably go early on it was the raptors but Lately is probably been Celtics But those rose to flip flop a low key chain. I like watching the wizards because you know they drop in so many points that they gave up one hundred and fifty points at hawks. Yeah we got them Haw Muhima threes. So That's fun Davis Burton's pulling for the logo and then Bradley beal. There's always going to be Bradley beal. It's a fun thing to watch. Sure I didn't know where I like. The pelicans the disagree as these have been really fun. The thunder have their moments. I can. I'd say that there's like eight teams in the Western Conference that I love watching three. I did watch the blazers just Damian Lillard at since mellow mellow to. You got the mellowed AFLA. They can't see back and says Anthony. He's used to be that team last year but this year it's been tough to watch them other than last night's comeback but they've been they've been tough. Yeah the jazz jazz will be number one team in the east. I mean the West. I don't like watching the Lakers. I knew I can watch the whole damn game on twitter after his dumb because all the highlights clippers are cool with both guys a plan. But it's like once a month. What is wrong with Paul? George is even. He's playing. What legitimate a hamstring hamstring? Yeah he has a legitimate injury which is funny that we sat about somebody because the stuff that injury Looking forward to tonight's game tonight's tonight does have a Mike. I'm glad you pointed out not get the grizzlies heat. Celtics are always going to be even sons Mavericks GonNa be ended up being a good game Would it look forward to the clippers. Lakers but I I do love the I did. They postponed it for further notice. How does how do you think that works? As far as ticketing goes I would think you definitely refund or they make either option that you've you come through the next year when I'm sure a lot of people are going to fly in for that game a such a monument to gain for different aspects. But we have the two best teams in the Western Conference going to guide then then all the emotions going through in La at the stake center. But I want to maverick. Silence can be depending on what type of songs we get. Get Harry bipolar team. The we we do games like Nick's Hornets Kiss apprised. The hell out of you and entertainment come on under six Marky Mark Morris Scoop trae young can try to put up a fight against Toronto. He did the thing. Oh yeah he did have missed the shot. You'd I like the top allies year. Six Bill were being thing that I would just be hard to watch them against the warriors. I don't really watch teams because sometimes the world some days they do something can come out and hold down But Yeah I'm looking forward. What throws games tonight and I want to see what cards come out today yes? That's what I'm really looking. Forward to. Another seventy sixers. Though this like this whole thing where you don't have joelovesbeets Jordan beat and Venice drive into just utilize them on the bench more or less. Oh give been similar. Where it's just him or John where it's just him but then when you get down to the fourth quarter and you gotta play together and what are you doing? Are you planning together. I mean that's where their issues and I was going to be issue. Yeah I think we just ride it out. Yeah just put him on the court together and until further notice and say they figure out what the hell they do only to be with like a figure it out and it was them to Say Good Point there. Yeah I do the bill with being but don't get don't get it twisted. The the idea is for them to win together. If it can happen I don't know he's GonNa come back because I just seen. What the jazz how my county just came back Nick Donovan? Mitchell was telling them that my Canada's basically just don't worry about me coming back in just continue to continue to do. You're going to do the same thing he's going to be like. I'm still the best player Li literally on the team. I gotTa answer my back to what I was doing. I think he already has like the green light with a team. So he's not going to really come in like mess anything up. I think he's just GonNa come in and be Joel embiid. So and that city and that organization he is number one whether it should be. This is how it is Yeah but I feel like they're still going to be a good team and it is about being a great team and about the play offs being good and good enough. They want their championship and yeah I I'm GonNa be personally but I do hope they come out and figure it out. I like the way it's about. You know we talk talk about being being aggressive when there's Joe other me. Tobias Harris has his moments where he's aggressive and then he's like not really days take seven shots and then they want night comes out and taking eighteen shot so I wanna see also be aggressive when Joel embiid comebacks. He's A. He's a big piece of that. Josh rich together I think Mas has done a the job very While he's been on getting making use of his minutes a raw netto has played some good basketball Who He who'd he you try to meet at the Rim Anthony Davis when they play the legacy chat he met him at the Ram duct using those opportunities to gain confidence for those bench players? 'cause we know the the Philly doesn't have the strongest storm starting for the more concert addicted. Stone those with that man Matisse style will. He's very in the defense of a shoe sizes when they established themselves on. Ben Simmons give those those looks he he's GonNa shoot he's no hesitation he's not like Andrew Rogerson leading the fly Zaire Smith there's still some pe- finally got some minutes the other night so yeah if he can you know start getting some opportunities reason gain some confidence in showing a proven himself and then another young guy and I was like. That's another guy that can turn into an asset. If you want to go out and get some debt. Mark is going to be available to play my bought out a couple of years ago.

Kobe Bryant tragically passed away in a helicopter crash few nights a few days ago. And of course we're going to spend a crate bitter this episode talking about Kobe's impact on the game on us and and kind of honoring him and his his daughter and everybody else that was affected or or or the passed away in a helicopter. Ride so anybody WANNA go. I Yeah I mean is very tragic very sad but I'm a lot better now than I was when it first occurred I can agree And I think it's because of the community that we we have That was was that was one thing that I think helped me a lot with seeing everybody kind of beat up for each other whether it was twitter while it was just us an xbox spots party whatever. It's a lot easier to to deal with when we all deal with together and we were able to see everybody on twitter Kinda more together and we've seen a lot of people just doing the right anything You know some things that happened In a process of all this that were kind of distasteful. But you know I think as a community we didn't allow it to Foley. Get our attention to dig it at some people's attention for a quick second you know would would news news places reporting the wrong information to try to be the first I in media is very distasteful. Whatever false people you know being brought into like rick fights and other daughters and whatnot and then we also had moments where you know? After we mourned and dealt with Kobe. We were able to take out the other people who also with them on the the Helicopter which I think was very important because there there were more than two lives that were lost and more than one family that was impacted by this and then you know it was as good the NBA do do some things that were You know honorable. We see a lot of different players a lot of different things. Lakers and clippers game as postpone. We've seen trae young. Bring out the number eight. I liked the carbonate. Put The ball at the free throw line where he broke Jordan's record. It was the last two. The three days have been tragically beautiful in the NBA. Just a few hours after the news broke through the rockets versus rockets versus chace. I Game I'm pretty sure like it happened. And then people are starting to find out because it was pretty much up in the air force higher our after. TMZ tweeted like. It can't be true. Were they had all of this. And then what. I'm saying chysler beautiful as seeing the players mourn like like death is the hardest take to deal with in the entire world so like it's weird to see players actually have to go out there and play. I know it is their job. And that's what what they're paid to do but to see Tyson's handler on the bitch bent as hurt as he was. Because you got this just hours after everybody found out and then we got Austin rivers verse Pisa Tucker All these great photos of people warning is tragically beautiful. It was it was just hard to watch them. Go out there and play knowing what they the heartbreak that they're going through. It was just like I thought. Maybe we can't sort of games but then I also realized that at least that game was too short notice like literally came out when negative Megan by the start they can have just stopped everything. The saddest thing for me. Is that the videos that we're seeing right now. The games that we have access to who is the only Koby will ever see again right like Hobie his NBA career. LAVIGNE's trying to think about this over the past few days trying to get my words right because I don't really no how to explain my relationship with Kobe. I wasn't Kobe was not my favorite player because he was so high up there. It was like being Lebron being your favorite player. Of course you love Lebron because abroad is great at the craft of basketball. And that's the way I felt. Were Kobe as well but I started to become a Kobe fan outside of basketball because of the things he did after his retirement as far as like the deer basketball or just seeing all the different interviews were were him being a family man or seeing the videos and stuff like that and that's the only the only piece of Kobe we have left is kind of a sad thing saying that we won't see him. Get another Oscar. Put out another schofield documentary. Things like that. It is sad but you know one thing that I am happy about. Is that one thing I can say about. Kobe is that he definitely definitely got his flowers while he was still here a year and that was a good thing to see both numbers retired. They didn't have to wait to anything. Like this happen. you know. He digged grammy him in check. You know we're able able to reconcile their differences or not so I was. I was happy to think on those things we do have a lot of moments to hold on. It's cherish You know they. They ran a sixty point. A game last night is last game they have they have that type of material to to always be able to put out. We've got twenty years of basketball from him. Yeah so it is a lot out there. Basketball is not just like Some of these guys we watch and it's like oh he's good but he's on his bad teams. You know what I mean. He doesn't have have like these moments was acting on the Bulls. But he's giving you exactly mean just put up forty four million in twenty years. He gave it all so not really inspiration to me when I reflect back on it. Though you know I I wanted to walk like him. I wanted to talk like him. I WANNA at the free throw line. And that's my fingers Alfred Alfred Jerseys off by Jersey. Just like him and he's gone now. You can't even wasn't Kobe. The person that got you into basketball the reason why I like Kinda amount of my game after him I wanted to post. I wanted to take those tough shots. And I wanted to take the lash out of the game issues their fierceness he he had that competitive nature. And I'm never really dragged him and he's still going to be like an icon in the to our next generations they play is still going to look up town. Try to mold their game after him you could still see today in the NBA players that they all got their game from him. And as I said we won't get to see He's he's one of the very few people in all sports that got a farewell tour. Think about that and all of sports we've had so many so many great athletes throughout the history. It was a real farewell to. We're like every every single place was we have pack nights coby. Coby are Frank Hiran spit so so much money to see Kobe's last game here's a Kogyo and is like he. Even before call. We passed away. He always said that he never regretted spending a whole paycheck and a half because that was his favorite player in ECE impact. The hair like me appears uncle. NUKII was never a basketball fan but he loves Brian. He loved him Kobe Bryant. And that's just say it's always deeper to basketball. Today's I've been on social media and I seen people are never talk about basketball for bring up Kobe. Bryant and Inspiration Gratien an impact that he had on the. Yeah Yeah It was Kobe was like definitely to When I was introduced to Basketball Cope I mean Michael Jordan was still in the game and we still impactful but for me? Kobe was the first person that I attach myself to. On my own and Ya Yeah I had every shoe I still remember the day that I got. The Jersey still have his Jersey from when I was a kid. I May I had the Kobe's on Now I have. I have wow stories about getting Kobe. I remember that Jersey that I have now. It's the white one at the Lakers. Weird like where to White Jersey. But that had just came out and I I still remember wearing to school In the second or third grade I got. I got a purple one but I couldn't fit the purple ones on all back to the mall. Exchange Exchanger for biggest is and she would call me. They only have the white when I was like they have the The White One yes yes of course when I remember get into school and people like Bernie just just they just played in this. How did you get it I remember Some particular call came out and I had you know kid I want them real bad and I have promised my auntie that I would like more lawn for like sick of crazy amount of time to get the shoes and she got me and then she moved soon after that. So I never really hyper dunks. Yeah Horiuchi K.. Fours my favorite shoe and I guess because Kobe I got Kobe's right now in a room proto ones that I'm going to cherish We just got a lot of memories man. We just did. It's funny because we just hit the all-star Promo I for Twitter Koby. Yeah a lot of a lot of my moments were Koga moments besides down contest but yeah y'all we will see that of course and into a dress that a lot of those clips that come out. They're not from a show to just strictly. Because I know another one we'd be recently came out and people were the accident. One is that episode so just so it isn't any confused. Yeah just strictly Promo twitter clips that we do When recording his Yeah it was good to see that they want a game. How you feel about that? The Lakers Cuba's getting because that was a very emotional sat. And I think about it would have been. I'm happy that the players are getting time with the grievous counselors and everything like that because we can go down a list of every NBA roster and everybody had been impacted by Kobe. Either directly or in some way or y'all have a personal favorite moment of Salata moments and it came from the game that that was aired again. The sixty point game. It's after the after the game was over. He looked over at his family and and he did this smile. And then a pan to the girls and all of them were super excited for and that that moment. I couldn't watch the six game yesterday yesterday. I couldn't. I couldn't bring myself to do it because it would have brought too many too many emotions but clip resurfaced on twitter again and it's of do breakdown video. And he's at. It ended the game when coach Gordon Hayward stepped into the lane. It's just in case. Kobe didn't get sixty hill. Inhaler cleared that up on twitter. He was saying that that does not true really and he also says on the last day. That's not what Kobe would have wanted anyway like Hobie. OBI wanted to make their free throw. You don't WanNa he want a second chance to hit his sixty and that wasn't some do and I believe that was Mike to recall it. was somebody up there. It is I mean if you look at it. Looks like Gordon Hayward even looks at the ref so my favorite moment is when both games against the raptors one one when he drops eighty one and then the other one when he dropped when he. I'm just hitting off caution when he bringing baggage jobs yeah when they would seem like that game was over he just willed them back to win. I guess you saw awesome in that last game against. Utah's well with that. Look like the game was over. He legit just will come back to win. It's crazy. He would do that young and then on his last game of his career he was still able to just will his team to a with. It's just so many moments in include shots that I consider all my all time favorites favorites but if I had to pick one I would say when he tore his Achilles and you had the injury but he was back in the two free throws. Yeah that's that's like an moment moment. Fines were Kobe. Bryant is because you see people turn to Achilles and they can't walk ups fall and it's the fact that he was able to stand up literally wheels himself back. What what about you did you say? You're a mafia moments just a moment from a kid Robert Horry launches the inbound pass after May frito. He wraps around honoree nuggets. Yeah I was just like I as a kid I just thought that was the coolest Shit in the world and that was just like you can't even practice that and that's just like like it just happens sometimes. You just WANNA basketball court. You just do some shit. You don't even know what you did what you just did it. That's what makes basketball so good..

"And Stephan and I are going to continue our conversation about Kobe Bryant. Let's our whole show. Oh this week and the bonus segment is more of our conversation. We had a lot that we wanted to say. And talk about if you want to hear it and you're not a member signing for slate plus just thirty five dollars for the first year you can sign up at slate dot com slash hangup plus our. Let's bring in Lindsay Gibbs. She is the author of the power plays newsletter newsletter. About Women and sports which you should subscribe Lindsey. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks so much for having me back in twenty sixteen. You wrote a piece titled The legacy of the Kobe. Bryant rape case for think progress in the aftermath of his death it has been fascinating to watch how the rape case has been rehashed by the media and I wanted to ask you first sort of sure your perspective on how you think. The inclusion of this chapter of his life has been handled. I think it's tough because we the media and fans didn't do a really good job reckoning with it and discussing it when he was alive so it makes sense that it would be really also tough even more tough to discuss thus when he's Passed away especially so tragically. I think I'm seeing two extremes. I'm seeing people who were really affected the rape case and really remember that so much and so they're using that as a way to say that all the other grief about about him is invalid. And I'm also seeing the other extreme which is people going into deep detail talking about his his on-court legacy awkward legacy while referring to the rape cases that Colorado thing and not going into details and I really neither are those are sufficient. I mean I think it's it is a big part of his legacy. It's one that he never really properly grappled with and the media let him get away with is not grappling with an addressing for so long and so. I don't think you can completely ignored of the same time. I don't think it should be the only thing that is discussed and I understand. Why a lot of people wanna discuss other things about his legacy right now on? ESPN which is how. I had it on all day yesterday and this morning they were really sticking to sports. There was not. I don't WanNa say on sportscenter. There was not any and he mentioned because I wasn't watching the the whole time but if there was it was extremely passing and it was entirely focused I guess as you would expect on the outpouring.

"I think the same thing happens with people who are less controversial like people I mean people loved Manu towards career because he was like Manoa moments towards the end I think they just has a lot with dirk with like these these people who are like absolutely legends who are in a state of diminishing. I just think it was like this impulse to blow them up a little bit. You know every time I go. That's vintage covy and I was like you know I get it but it was exhausted. There were these stretches in his career where he played firt good teams and stretches where he played for bad teams and when he was on bad teams. He certainly did not subjugate himself to teammates there. were't inferior he didn't quote unquote. Make the right play like Lebron Ron always. Does you know in two thousand thirteen. A thing that I had forgotten in the run-up to his tearing his Achilles he was playing like forty the eight minutes a game they were fighting for eight seed She was old as hell at that point for for the NBA. He's playing more minutes than anybody in the League. Desperately striving to get them into the playoffs where they would have gone their their asses kicked and he was doing it in in a very ostentatious like shot. I way that put himself at the center of the team of of the game. And it was legitimately emily. I think what that team needed to attain the ceiling that they were gonNA attain but it didn't necessarily seem like Kobe was less happier ear less fulfilled in those situations. He where love he loved. He loved playing forty eight minutes a game and and shooting Every time down the floor and then he tears. His Achilles goes in and makes the two free throws and in all the remembrance as we've seen the last couple of days. Joel that is the first or second thing that anybody mentions about. Kobe is that he made those free. Throws after. Kelly's that's absolutely true. I mean I hear what. You're saying there. Jasmine also remember that that there was a time when he got caught on camera. You know dismissing the contributions of Chris Mihm that he was like really cruel to smush Parker Parker that he threatened to go to the clippers and stuff like that and there was the playoff series against the suns the Po Shek Year where he basically quit and game. Seven you remember remember that does that shoot refused to shoot so I mean he. You know you're you're right. I mean towards the end of the career we sort of like made up. You know a a lot of the methodology took over from there but there were some moments in his career where he was not like ultimate team winner. Love Basketball Guy would. He really undermined his teammates in his franchise and didn't necessarily give his all And not just I mean that's just part of being a competitor right. I mean that's fair for anybody else but like with Kobe. Like that kind of gets missed because we just decided that he was the heir to Jordan. You Know Nick Greens piece yesterday. It was fantastic. It was exactly right is like there won't be another copy specifically because the way he plays gone the way he plays as just has left the league even the players who sort of who patted themselves up to him like the. Marta rose in the Arkansas. Really inefficient right. They're they're considered like less valuable than other players who can shoot threes or get more fish odds and so in a real way that Kobe Bryant was the last of this line of mid range shooting hybrid leading swimming. And I just. I don't know that that to me going up in the nineties. That was always the way I understood. Like the quintessential basketball player like that was the apex of the sport. was somebody who could do those things. I'm sad about what he represented for basketball on a bunch of levels gene demby of NPR's code switch. Thank you very much. Thank you all right. I wanted to let you guys now.

"In the beginning of his NBA career? It's weird because the the you know as you as you guys talk about in the Post Denver years that wilfulness became almost like a brand right like his sort of singular focus became his brand Dan before. Then that was definitely like what he was known for. It was that he was when he was like at Lower Marian. It wasn't just that he was six when he was reelected in high school but that he was sort of a workhorse. I remember a year after the draft Allen Iverson. Kobe was always in the same. Alan Iverson draft but the sixers drafted Larry Hughes the following year. And coming out of sort of someone. Just the pickup games in the area was that Kobe. Bryant had outplayed every guard who've been playing sort of in the sixers orbit and there were some people apparently wanted the draft Kobe Bryant and the sixers brass apparently because he was just that advance even though he was obviously still a kid but there was a lot of talk that he was going to be a better pro but at the time it was still very anomalous for high school players jump to the league and was also especially anomalous for back at court players to do so and so I think there was a sense that there was going to be this weird difficulty. Spike that you know that that might not translate to the League as effectively as we all know it did. Yeah the one person who didn't I didn't have any qualms about that was jerry. West of the Lakers isn't that there's a story that Brian comes out talk to do a workout for the team. pre-draft and West leaves the workout early and says I've seen enough. He's already better than anybody. That's on our team right. Now right I mean and I think it was a bunch of layers in the Philadelphians relationship for the Philadelphia choice ships. Kobe Bryant I think I sort of resented him personally because when you into the Lakers looked like he was in line to supplant you know Temple Legend Eddie Jones owns aptitude arbitration. I didn't like who is this kid. Like I love that he does and so I had like this long. Interminable list of reasons to Alex do dissipated. It's weird because you mentioned this right class of ninety-six forty-one still like Kobe is always sort of been part of the celebrity landscape in my life. Right and and you know we talked about the brand thing the rap career I remember in some of these media appearances that he'd made over the years to he was clearly like trying to make himself self into a thing like he was on in the house. Remember the show with you. Yeah right he and Derek Fisher like went on there and I was like Oh man I just totally. I totally forgotten that like Hobie hit spent a lot of time like trying to build this image of herself as something more than a basketball. He wasn't just like other dudes. Don't forget the destiny's child video. Yeah yeah that's right. That's right bugaboo. He was in Bugaboo to yeah. I think he was very open with us. I mean he wanted to be will Smith. That's what he said. But isn't that isn't that. A characteristic of Kobe is entire career that he was always looked like he wanted to be something else. In addition to being the greatest he was always really trying very very hard until later until later. I think one of the things that always again like that. I guess spills where it say. What was greeted me about him whether he seemed like such try? Hard That I mean his dalliances dalliances with hip hop. I think a lot of felt like that was like rich. Boy 'cause play you know like he was like you know. He's from the suburbs of Philadelphia. He's you know the child of an NBA player right. He's like ah a rich suburb of Philadelphia. Lower Italian yes exactly right. He's sort of this cosmopolitan kid. Who was trying what seemed right so some of us like I'm trying really hard to be like someone that he wasn't which probably wasn't completely fair for us to think that but you know we were teenagers and I wanted to give to be like you know judicial judicious affair but he always was like clearly positioned himself to be like this pop culture? Figure is kind of remarkable to think. I never really thought about this until yesterday but like the pre rape allegations Kobe. Bryant was just how ubiquitous a pitch man. He was he almost got there right like I mean he was McDonald's commercials. I still remember. That one was a precocious kid walking off with them and like I challenge you to play one one Kobe and he's sort of like how bees Kobe gentle figure which is like almost impossible to imagine you. You know Kobe. The last fifteen years Being somebody who was like joking around with a kid who will be like cutthroat. Oh you know what I mean like. He sort of was clamoring to be that person. The sort of like pop culture figure in a way. That didn't always seem graceful. Felt very very deliberate. It felt very erotic right. Because I remember you you probably Ali remember this right. It seems remarkable to say this. In retrospect but that all star game where he was named MVP in Philly and they booed him and he'd like look legitimately hurt. You know I would never have imagined it like if you move fourteen years. You could never imagine Kobe responding that way looking hurt by the crowd loud booing him right absolutely. I remember that was legitimately surprised by that and I think that was this. Part of the other thing was like Hobie was due to talk about himself as a Philadelphian and was also like genuinely generally disliked by Philadelphians. Once it became a pro. I mean he was a Laker right so he one of our. You know historical rivals. I think there was a sense. That he wasn't isn't real Philadelphian. There's all this stuff that was layered into this contempt for this dude. And the fact that he played for the Lakers. And there's a lot of antipathy Timothy Around.

"If you're dealing with grief if you need time and space rather than going through the motions rather than putting yourself on television where you know you're feeling sick to your stomach or nauseous or just like you don't feel like you should be there. I think that I kind of Tim. I had to carry. And he's in a unique situation because he's a superstar so he can sort sort of do what he wants to do but I hope he's not getting any criticism for that and I think that he actually sent a pretty good message without one. You know if you guys are struggling with tough news like like this whether it's about Kobe Bryant or someone in your family in you need time and space to get through it take it you know and hopefully your employer in in your company will support you on that Grief is just one of those things that gets to you in different ways and I can come in waves. You know it can. It can come and just Kinda stab your real quick nick Unpredictable can change your personality. Change your mood and it's so important to You know self reflect. I guess at that time and for he went through that with his grandfather last year he was very open about the impacts. And I think You know he said a really good example there from the League's perspective. I don't personally have a problem with the fact that they've played those games But I will be curious to just read the reporting here as it comes is out. How was the decision made Where people given the options or anything like that because some teams that took the court just didn't want to be there you know and they said that and they look that way and you know they'll never remember what happened on those courts because they were in a Fox sort of like the rest of us? Yeah one hundred percent I mean regardless regardless of. There's almost nothing. There is nothing that could have happened on the basketball court yesterday. That would ever be remembered beyond commemorating the death of Kobe and the tragic loss of life. Eight others hey. I'm Andy if you don't know me it's probably because.

"In the middle of the street. And it's challenging as it can be you find a way to get around it and you got to move forward in in thinking about what you learn from. What's going on? Of course we're waking up thinking about everything that happened yesterday. We had the grammys last night. which almost didn't seem real? Because we're we're all thinking about what happened in California Calabasas with Kobe Bryant and his daughter and all the people who lost their lives on that helicopter. And we're GONNA talk about all of them today not just Koby but anyway so everyone's sort of in a fog in days in a little shock because of as Gandhi said the immediacy of it the finality of something that happened in the a flash of a second right. Yep and it's one of those things that you just think of all the things you could have done differently and I think all of us have been in that situation where somebody walks out the door and they just don't come home and we really take advantage of what a blessing it is for someone to leave and come back. I know Daniel you wrote something really beautiful on social media last night and see the thing is I know where you're coming from. You Just Lost Your Dad. You're raising a family in so dead family. The Kobe Bryant story involves all of that and more. Yeah it was very very tough because of that the just the fact that somebody had tweeted out yesterday that these people had plans for tomorrow. You know what I mean. They sat down. They had breakfast this morning. And they're like all right seen in a couple of hours and you don't see them in a couple of hours and having to deal with my little guy who who had a million questions and trying to give him answers. Does that put his mind to rest. When you don't even have your mind at rest remains so okay so we go through what we're thinking and what we're feeling we're talking to our friends about it eventually? We have to turn it to the point of what are we. What are we learning from all this and we'll figure that out? Let's let's let's kind of go down. That wrote today. Let's have a good day. Yeah that's what we have to do. We have to give you a great day in welcome to the show. Our first caller today is Kelly in beautiful demoines Iowa. How you doing out there Kaley? What's going on?

Yep and it's one of those things that you just think of all the things you could have done differently and I think all of us have been in that situation where somebody walks out the door and they just don't come home and we really take advantage of what a blessing it is for someone to leave and come back. I know Daniel you wrote something really beautiful on social media last night and see the thing is I know where you're coming from. You Just Lost Your Dad. You're raising a family in so dead family. The Kobe Bryant story involves all of that and more. Yeah it was very very tough because of that the just the fact that somebody had tweeted out yesterday that these people had plans for tomorrow. You know what I mean. They sat down. They had breakfast this morning. And they're like all right seen in a couple of hours and you don't see them in a couple of hours and having to deal with my little guy who who had a million questions and trying to give him answers. Does that put his mind to rest. When you don't even have your mind at rest remains so okay so we go through what we're thinking and what we're feeling we're talking to our friends about it eventually? We have to turn it to the point of what are we. What are we learning from all this and we'll figure that out? Let's let's let's kind of go down. That wrote today. Let's have a good day. Yeah that's what we have to do. We have to give you a great day in welcome to the show. Our first caller today is Kelly in beautiful demoines Iowa. How you doing out there Kaley? What's going on?

"So beat the. We're here to talk about the tragic. Death breath of former Lakers star. Kobe Bryant who died in a helicopter crash yesterday along with we believe eight other people. So let's start with what what we know happened on Sunday morning people living in Calabasas a town west of La heard a loud noise one person. Jason said they heard the sound of helicopter blades and then allowed impact and then people saw a fire erupt and the L. A. County Fire Department received nine one one call at nine forty seven. AM local time about brushfire and a potential helicopter down and CALABASAS. Is this town that sort of spills. Dell's up on the side of the Santa Monica Mountains. Like you said about thirty miles northwest of downtown. La and the crash happened in a pretty hard to reach mountainous area near. You're there. Yeah it's it's the sort of woodsy terrain it's it's prone to brushfires and they've had problems with fires there for some time including a really big fire. There air in two thousand eighteen at a news conference Sunday afternoon. Daryl odds be a spokesperson for the La County Fire Department said that they dispatched a really really large crew of people in response to the crash and the fire. The loss of this county fire department initial response was fifteen pieces of apparatus. Fifty six personnel that consisted of paramedics catching company. Heavy rescue truck company hand crews the aircraft in a chief officer to oversee the incident but he said that the emergency responders did not find anyone alive at the scene of the crash Russian. They did a search of the area for survivors. Unfortunately all the survivors bore were determined to have the parish. And we also don't want to read into this too much because the cause of the crash is still being investigated but there was some really dense fog in los dangerous on Sunday. I actually was talking about it with someone on Sunday morning before we even heard about the crash. Yeah it's it's definitely something that is being talked about As a potential contributing factor in the crash and flights were delayed due to dense fog at LAX. On Saturday. But again we'll have to wait and see what the the investigation finds and so at the time that we're now speaking late Sunday night Los Angeles time. We believe that there were nine people on board the helicopter. Yeah at that Sunday Sunday afternoon. News Conference. Sheriff Alex Villanova made reference to a flight manifest basically a list of passengers on board an aircraft as achieve indicated. There were no survivors. We haven't manifests indicates that there was nine people on board the aircraft. The pilot plus eight individuals There arose the white speculation who had entities are however it is entirely inappropriate right now to identify anyone by name until the corner has made identification advocation through their very delivered profits. And they've made made enough -cation six again and there was this pretty remarkable moment where the sheriff called out out. TMZ apparently reporting that. Kobe Bryant had died and hinting that they broke that story before the Bryant family had been notified ride and it'd be extremely disrespectful to understand that your low one of these terrorists and learn about it from TMZ that is just wholly all the inappropriate. So we're not going to be going there. We're going to wait to the quarter desert job and we're assisting the families of those who believe there had been impacted and it's a IT'S A. It's a tough process but at this point multiple sources have confirmed a number of deaths two different media outlets so let's talk about Who We know was on that helicopter so Kobe Bryant who is forty one years old and his thirteen year old daughter? Jonah also known as G G. Jj was a young basketball player. Who is very much her father's daughter? She had his drive and his determination and she was very much the heir to the Bryant Basketball Mantle. You know Kobe had four daughters and G G would very famously say that. He didn't need a son to carry on his legacy that she would do that. And he talked talked about that on. The Jimmy. Kimmel show one time. Do you think your daughter Might WanNa play WNBA. She does for sure she this kid man happy we great man. The best thing the best thing that happened to go out and fans come up to me and she'll be standing next to me. It'd be like you gotTa have a boy you gotTa have a boy somebody carry on a tradition the legacy. She's like oh I got this. Aw got this. And he'd often be seen sitting with G. G. courtside analyzing the game with her in his daughter in the building breaking down the game. I Love I love this For multiple reasons great to have of course. Kobe Bryant his daughter here. But you could tell. Now he's sitting right near us but he's been breaking down. The chilton time to his daughter was a basketball player herself in that the beautiful awful thing. He was her coach you know. He coached her on her travel team and they were on their way to a game at Kobe's Mamba Sports Academy when when their helicopter crashed. And it's been reported that three of the other people on board were a baseball coach named John Kelly. His wife Kerry and their daughter Eliza Who was on the same basketball team as Kobe? Daughter Jonah. John is the one we know the most about so far. Yeah John Altobelli. Was College Baseball Baseball coach. He coached at Orange Coast College. For Twenty seven years he won four state titles and more than seven hundred games and from all accounts. He was the kind of coach who who truly put his players. I who who treated them like family. ESPN's Jeff Passan chalked. Jeff McNeil plays for the New York mets and had played for Altobelli Valley in the Cape Cod League and McNeill said quote. He's one of the main reasons I'm still playing professional baseball. And John Kerry altobelli reportedly have two surviving surviving children. Yes a teenage daughter Alexis and an adult son. Jj who is now a scout with the Boston Red Sox and Sunday night a local local news affiliate reported that another passenger on this helicopter was Christina. Moser would we know about her at this early point in time. She was an assistant basketball coach at harbor day school and Orange County. Her husband Matt posted on his facebook. Page saying that their family is devastated. Asking for privacy for himself in his children and we should note that Dr Jonathan Lucas. The chief medical examiner for the county of Los Angeles spoke Sunday night and said that they're in the process of recovering and identifying the bodies. But that that could take multiple days potentially given how difficult that is to access the crash site and the NTSB the National Transportation Safety Board is currently investigating the cause of this crash and so it could be that as of now there has not been unofficial statement from the Bryant family or from the Lakers. So there's still a lot we don't know oh but the reactions from the basketball world and really the entire world have really been pretty incredible and very emotional yeah they have NBA. Commissioner Adam. Silver called Kobe quote one of the most extraordinary players in the history of our game and cited his five. NBA Championships. Two Thousand Nine League. MVP Eighteen all star selections and two Olympic gold medals. Magic Johnson called Kobe the greatest Laker of all time and shack who won three championships with Kobe and his forever entwined with him tweeted about his heartbreak. His teammates they won three championships together. She kilo. Neil there's no words to express the pain I'm going through with this tragedy of losing my niece gee-gee and my brother Koby Bryan. I love you and you'll be missed my condolences Sousse go out to the Bryant. Family and Doc rivers the clippers. Coach got very choked up in front of reporters when he was asked about Kobe shortly after he got the news. I don't have a lot to say. The news is just devastating to everybody. Who Noah you know? And you know he just he meant it means a a lot to me. Obviously you know we also saw NBA teams throughout the League. Honor Koby during games and this has been happening all all around the League every team I possession taking a twenty four second shot clock violations as an Omagh the Kobe Bryant number twenty four..

"The basketball star Kobe Bryant was killed in helicopter crash. In calabasas California Bryant was forty one eight others including his thirteen year old daughter. Jonah died in the accident. Tributes have been pouring in for the Lakers legend. We all feel a deep sense. A loss us for woody meant to all of us in so many ways in so many millions of people loved him for so many different reasons and this was a man for all he was more than iconic a basketball player he was someone who inspired millions of fans. All over the world. Today is is one of the saddest days Malaysia. You seems like a bad. The Badgering One Waco is a nightmare today. We're joined by. ESPN's Ramona Shelbourne. Who covered Bryant for fifteen years? Ramona where are you right now. You know I'm sitting in my car outside the Mamba Academy in thousand oaks and There's like hundreds of people here putting flowers down just kind of trying to cope with the news here and this is the academy. He started Where he was on his way here For a basketball game and he was here all the time. Those folks there's a lot of people who no I'm just seeing a lot of young women walking walking up and down the street just sad wearing their koby. Jerseys I think everyone in Los Angeles right now really around the world but especially early right here where Kobe's been. He was a young man when he was drafted by the Lakers and so he became a man here he became an old man here he he retired here. People feel like they knew their whole life. And so I've been kind of all over today going to the crash site and seeing that helicopter after still smoldering on the hillside With Laker fans and just not even Laker fans. Just everybody knew who heard about it. People kind of needed to go. Oh and witnesses to see to believe that it was true and even then honestly it doesn't feel like it really happened. When did you first hear the news you know I was? It was home playing with my son this morning and My friend just got an alert on her phone she she wears an apple. Watch and dot an alert when TMZ posted the story story. And and I dropped my phone and I started calling everybody that I knew close to Kobe to go into reporter mode. Because you've got to confirm remit and find out what happened and what's going on here and it was right about eleven thirty when when this all happened so immediately like I think I'm shaking when I heard this and it's it's really hard to process that Kobe's gone and then to find out how many other people are gone along with him with his daughter daughter. Jonah G. G. God he was always telling me about G G. He was so so proud of her like he was always picturing her in the WNBA. You know she's already verbally. Committed to uconn right. I mean he was so proud of her and they love talking basketball it she had that same drive and ferocity that he did and you can just tell how how much he was beaming about her and over the years especially since he's been retired like Kobe and I've stayed in touch and connected you know as we're about the same image right we. We have respect for each other professionally. But I think it's become a more more of a friendship since he retired is always telling me about his kids like that's what he was doing now. You know he either whenever I would never call him he was always at the office working or at one of his kids. Basketball Games or choir practices or something with kids like an an and like that was his life right now and I can't believe at forty one that his life is over. I you know I actually told them at one point like hey man enjoy retirement. Slow down a little bit like you're you're in the office all the time you're working and She just had so much that he was doing. And I'm glad he didn't slow down. You know we have a lot that he's written and said and done to to remember him by and I think his legacy will only grow with time Ramona Ramona. When the news broke there were a lot of conflicting reports confusion about who was on the helicopter? We now know that Kobe's three other daughters in his his wife s Were not in the accident when you got to Calabasas. What'd you learn? Well you know initially I talked to some of the residents. There's there's a couple of apartment buildings around there and some some people who had heard and seen the crash and one man told me he saw he he heard the helicopter are any solid flying low. And then you just heard this falling sound and he knew something was really wrong and he he. He had been on the phone at the time so he went outside and saw all the smoke and the brushfire when they like. This happens like everybody wants answers. Everybody wants to know like was it. The fog the weather conditions of the helicopter contrary There's no way to process this. Would we know right now about the other passengers on the flight while we know his You know his daughter Tatjana was there and then The manifest of the helicopter said there were nine people aboard. And that's part of what's so sad about this. Is that you know. They were on their way to a basketball event. And this is just like a Sunday with the family for a lot of different families here as we're talking I'm seeing footage outage from outside the Staples Center. There's hundreds and hundreds of fans putting up sort of makeshift memorials. You just described what's happening at the Mamba Academy Academy his basketball school. How is the city of Los Angeles taking notice? I mean honestly it feels like this giant hole in the city right now like La Watch. Kobe grow up Elliott. Watch Kobe through the best of his life and the worst of his life you. Oh you watched him come back from injuries. You watched him as an old man. You watched him grow old not especially gracefully and then you watched him have the Sublime Ma last game where he scored sixty points on fifty shots. I mean I don't think I've ever seen staple center that electric and I was. I've been there when the Lakers won the NBA Championship. It was never like it was the nineteen sixty it was unbelievable and La. kind of feels like they know MLA. I'm Elliott kind of. Feels like he's their guy and you know maybe it's the same as New York feels about Derek jeter. It feels like that and I think people are still in shock to be honest like I. It doesn't feel real like it feels like you're gonNA wake up and that was a hoax or a bad dream but it obviously is and I think that's why everybody's coming to the Mamba Academy or the Hillside Calabasas. Just kinda witness listen and and process for years ago. Oh you wrote about Kobe. I just reread the story in the first line is Kobe. Bryant wants to talk about what comes after death. You're talking about basketball basketball death there because you were yeah spending the last few weeks months of his career with him. But it's reading that now it's is just haunting honestly when I first wrote it it was life after death is basketball player right and if felt like he'd you being so obsessed with basketball like what was he going to be afterwards. How could he be anything afterwards?.

"In the fall of nineteen ninety eight an elderly woman known as the Cat Lady went missing. She had a very Very Distinctive Silhouette and very recognizable. When so you're walking into town a handkerchief on her hair long overcoat like somebody that lived on the street? All police could find were thirty. Thirty cats shot dead. I always knew something happened to her disadvantage like that uncover the cat lady case from CBC ABC podcasts. This is a CBC podcast Galloway. This is podcast from the January. Twenty seventh edition of the current a Toronto Raptors been attributed up. There's a twenty four second shot clock and of course Kobe Bryant wore number twenty four and I wonder if that is what is happening in in honor of him. Twenty four second shot clock expired remarkable scene yesterday at the beginning of Toronto Raptors game the Raptors in the San Antonio Spurs pay tribute to NBA Great. Kobe Bryant Bryant running down the twenty four second shot clock in honor of the number that he wore twenty four. Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash. In California yesterday eight other people including including his daughter were also killed Gomez. Kelly has written about Kobe Bryant extensively over the years and he's with me in studio now. Good morning morning. How would you describe Kobe? Bryant has a basketball go. I would say a brilliant an incredibly brilliant but complicated figure transformative I think the modern NBA. And I'm not talking about the tactics of the way they play but the way the NBA carries itself. It's dominance throughout the world is perhaps the world's most fascinating league a lot of that is down to him. Why what what did he do? There are other superstar superstar. Certainly what did he do. That was transforming. I would suggest that the thing that Ryan did that. You know it's hard not to call them Koby The thing that Kobe did that other other players couldn't do is that he brought this mercurial persona this need to attract attention on and off the court and a sort of arrogance the translated with fans in a way that mere play couldn't I think the way I put it. Today's he was social media before there was social media. He was a person that used the price us who berated his teammates who castigated his opponents who was against everyone tilted every windmill and people found that fascinating and the important important thing of course is that he could back it up. He was probably the most brilliant player of his generation fascinating. backstory grew up in a basketball family and grew up in Europe before he moved back to North America. who was Kobe? Bryant and in that context in that context Kobe Bryant was a a child that was bred for greatness whose parents had decided in his youth he would be special in some way. That wasn't necessarily basketball. But it turned out that weighs father play professionally overseas. He was home schooled and so when he arrived. Eddie arrived with this incredible cockiness and self assuredness that people really hadn't seen before he was able to display in a bunch of different languages. -solutely was multi-lingual. You know it was pointed out that he could have got a scholarship the US based on his academics not as athletics so he was someone someone who was bred for greatness and carried that through like never seemed to lose that self belief even when we know forget it wobbled at the beginning wasn't quite the player. He was initially advertised as he had to grow into that role and came in straight from high. I school that's exactly right. He was one of the last to do it. His career there are people in Canada who will remember higher low point in which he scored eighty one points against the Toronto Raptors. What did that tell you what he was capable of that he could? It was two things that happen there I to score eighty. One Point is insane in that game he took forty six shots. The Raptors total so about ten players to seventy six so we. He didn't lack for self belief. That was the thing is that most players will never score that automatics. Most players will not take that many shots and they will try passing off at some point but he just felt he was in a rhythm and kept going later. He called that he didn't talk about The physical physical need of doing it. He's talked at his feet of the imagination. That only he could imagine so big to score eighty one point in the imagination of basketball fans. And you saw this yesterday not just social media but if you talk to basketball fans of a generation of his generation he was the greatest player he mean to Tabasco ball players and fans of the current generation. Because there's Michael Jordan and there's Larry Bird and there's there's a long list of of extraordinary players but in that generation. He seemed special. Well the thing is I think McKee Kobe. Bryant had a Shakespearean Art to his careers is three. Kobe's there's the initial Kobe that wins the first championships and becomes you. Know the the the rising star in the NBA NBA. The new Michael Jordan. Probably the second best shooting garden history after Jordan. Then there is the sex assault accusation at which point his reputation is brought low understandably. Then there is kind of a dark koby period after that when he becomes quite embittered and retreats into himself and then there's that necessarily third arc mark when he becomes the elder statesman that went on for quite a while. That's the player I think. Players of this generation remember when he became a kinder gentler. Koby he he was still. You still could kick against the pricks many hot too. But he was the sort of person that took people under his wing and was more open to new players as you mentioned at the height of his success success. He's accused of sexual assault. He's arrested never tried Settled a civil suit related to this out of court. The story was that this would have destroyed his His career now if this had happened now in the era of me to in an era of heightened awareness around sexual assault That he would have never come back he did come back. And how do you rebuild his his career and his image. After the I think the thing that athletes the advantage. If that's the word we WANNA use that. Athletes athletes have in. This is that you know whereas other careers when something like this happen necessarily stop athlete. There's a huge investment in them. Their career continues because they're under contract in most cases. And so you have your way to play your way out of it fairly or unfairly and people have very strong opinions on that but because he continued to be great and because he continued to win and championships later on people simply forgave is the right word they simply move past it. How does that count the legacy that you see him leaving? It certainly complicates his legacy. I think that's where people to say to themselves At this comes down to I would think an art versus the artist question. I think thank you can appreciate the art without necessarily endorsing every single thing about the artist. There is a view that is shared that The statistics don't define his legacy gacy in some ways that he had all the numbers. But that isn't the full picture. No I think that's absolutely true because it is what we think people will remember about Kobe. Bryant a generation ration- from now is not that he was the fourth leading score of all time or the five championships are the remarkable eighteenth street. All Star Games What it is? The Person Colby. Oh be encouraged players in the NBA. I think writ large to be more themselves to be more honest In the media. But what they thought was going on on to be crueler which people are always attracted to. I mean nobody. Nobody was crueler to his teammates. Think coby Bryan people loved it and also also to see themselves as something more than basketball in sports standards. He was a renaissance man. This guy spoke Italian. He played the piano. Appreciate it art. He was probably the first north. American can athlete that gave people permission to like soccer because he was such a big fan of it. So this is someone that was a lot more than what he did on the court beyond. The numbers is heartbreaking video. That's been circulating regulating Of Kobe Bryant on Jimmy Kimmel show speaking about his daughter who was also killed in the helicopter crash yesterday talking about how she was a basketball player and and when people came up on the street and talk to him he looked at her in some ways as furthering his legacy What does that tell you about who he was as a person people say that that not just? There's a father better. Somebody who became an advocate for women in sport. Yeah in a massive AD. Could he'd recently said that he thought women should be playing in the NBA. Not at some future point but right now this is someone who saw himself. He was raised as a legacy. That was the entire point of his of his child obviously wanted to carry that on. He didn't see his greatness. I I think is imbued entirely in himself. which a lot of a lot of great people do he saw? That is a generational patrimony that he was going to pass on. Call Paul Callan.

"They kept the Lakers in the series. It was almost two. WHOA and he gets that huge shot at the end of game to to send it back to Detroit one one? That's an all time shot in the finals again it. It's unfairly early forgotten because of the way his three four and five went but that was an iconic shot. And you know He. He had so so many you know by the time Lebron became you know marquee attraction by a second year in every time Lebron and Kobe played it was the event event They played on Christmas and they played on On what Luther King Day or they played on Christmas or they played in a very marquee event. I mean I spent I think three or four Christmases in L. A.. Because it was like Lebron plays coby on Christmas Day. And those are the pageantry of those games and I've said this many times and I just don't believe I was just talking to somebody about this yesterday because you know the Brown was passing passing him scoring wise. They played in every single finals from two thousand seven to two thousand eighteen. Eleven eleven straight files. One of the two of them were in and they never met and the game was worse for it. Was it was a historic near-miss miss really if you think about it. It's the only combination that we didn't get the possible you know star versus stars East versus West You know it's really the the only one that we didn't get and you know Brian. You mentioned the big event. It was even when they met in regular season but remember even especially early on they. They didn't live up to the hype in Kobe. But get hurt or missed a game. I remember he has relaunched or two year. Kobe seat is right now. You got hurt hurt. That hurt in that game. I can the first theat or something. Yeah and his right shoulder hanging off and he points a couple left handed jumpers first before he comes on it came out. I think I think you're the second or third year air. Kobe sprained his ankle in the game. I think there were two of the first times they played coby got hurt in the game. I'll tell the story now. Now now the he has passed away. I'll break the confidence So remember we talked about Brian. You might have gotten to quote where Lebron's had a quote where he said he just doesn't have that instinct to go out and kill. Everybody liked Kobe. Does you remember that. But I think you're along those lines. I don't know if that was the exact quote but but he expressed some some I. I'm not I don't know how he said it but it was something along those lines. Yeah like I don't have that same desire to you. Just go out and everybody. Kobe does and I I asked coli about it. I said that close in the Ron and commits again. He said I can't believe he would actually say that out loud Kobe was stunned. You know like I think I understood that you know maybe not. Everybody thought the same way he. You did But he just couldn't believe that you would say that out loud and say it on the record so about a week. After that Choline I had a little discussion The Lakers played the cavs. And it was certainly in the midst of the whole Lebron's not clutch debate. You know whatever you WANNA call it That was raging pretty high. Obviously pre-championships and I think Lebron misses two free throws something happens at the end. You know. Lebron Lebron has a chance and does not come through in the clutch and Walking out of the locker room Kobe said it co remember that conversation we had about the last week and he said Yeah I said. Do you think I came into play tonight. Yeah so you know. That was a little sense of the rivalry. I think I think they came to appreciate each other. I think you know I think Kobe Salt Lebron's go through it and work his way and suffer the pain and and you know. Make that slow. Low climb to the mountaintop and I. I think we came to appreciate that as well and I think Lebron appreciated Kobe In particular when they were in Beijing together are on the On the Olympic team and Brian you cover that team right I really relied on Kobe in crunch time right. And you know all the greatness. He wasn't the best player on a theme but he was the guy that they went to the gold medal. Game when they add against I think Lebron probably had the better tournament but koby absolutely brought home the gold with that that fourth quarter and I don't think they were particularly close at all. I think they kept a distance. I think it was competitive. Not just in basketball but where member is you know. When the bride came out of high school he gets US hundred million dollar shoe contract and coby had done had done this contract with Adidas where he did it come out of high school and it was good money at the time? He was a seven year contract for like the thirteenth picker. Whatever but it turned out to not not be a very good contract because he was getting underpaid and so he actually bought his way out of the contract with Adidas with like zone? Money paid them back money so he become a shoe free agent and he was a three time champion and pretty much of the top of of the of the game at that point Jordan had retired and he got forty million in his shoe hill. The prime got sixty million dollars more than Kobe when he switched over from Adidas to Nike and I think there was a rivalry with that one of the things. People always remember those puppet commercials that they did Where the the two puppets would portray betray Kobe and Lebron and even when those were running I thought? Isn't it amazing that they have these two hundred contracts or paying them tens of millions of dollars but they're not actually putting them in in commercials together. I don't think they really wanted to be like playing opposite each other and commercial so I mean the puppets they could sort of make them say whatever they wanted and they could act to sort of a caricature so it was you know and they both had sort of equal time where they showed up the other one. Good luck getting Kobe. To agree to a scene where Lebron showed him up on anything scripted or not and so I think that there was a distance between them. You know they only play go twice. AC Year and and they never play in the playoffs. Or whatever. And I do think after and it wasn't just in two thousand eight. They played together on three different Olympic teams. I'm sorry two different Olympic Teams in one team. I think they didn't Kobe. Play in the two thousand seventeen to qualify for the Olympics. I think he so. We've had the definite twenty twelve. What I thought was interesting in twenty twelve? The London Olympics was by then. Kobe realized that you know the Bron- and Durant ah kind of passed him by in terms of you know their abilities in the game and he took it upon himself to be the spokesman for that to remember stories about like you know. Could this team beat the Dream Team and you know of course Michael Jordan. You know really dismissed. All that and Kobe would go back in Michael Jordan and I remember one of their games in other tuneup games in Las Vegas. You know I I asked about that. And and he was the spokesman and he was saying we beat them and he said I'm going to win a series but like we get a game plan after we could be put up on their. You know for forty minutes and forty eight minutes and we can beat those guys and I said cool. You're kind of afraid. He says my nose. I'm a bad M effort. So that was that was like the beginning of his his adjustment into the role that I loved in his latter years so after he was really no longer continue for Champs but actually enjoyed that version. Koby the best in terms of talking to him because you know he had great perspective. He was very outspoken. was very available available to talk to and could just share everything from going against Michael going against Lebron into the historical perspective. The league all that you know and that's the version that you have for most of your time in La was the best version of copy especially those luke last year. I mean first of all. Let's get back to two thousand eight Olympics. That was so important for Kobe. Bryant in my estimation a gave him a connection to the rest of the league that he didn't have before they let him have the taste of winning that he had lacked for for years. You know two thousand four finals ends up. Being the thing that breaks up the Kobe shack team he gets back. There in two thousand and eight gets embarrassed in Boston guarded and that series. But you know he goes to Beijing. USA They say basketball reasserts its dominance. Kobe Bryant reasserts his his persona as a winner. And I think is reminded that it's really worth to devote yourself totally to this. This craft this child sport. That the way you have been you got a little bit of a payoff. That fueled the better team side of Kobe that we saw on the Kobe. Power years when he got two more rings. And you know that was so important I think to go Kobe. In just the little moments we would have covered covering him on a day to day basis and it was it was always a challenge. I became the face of ESPN's ESPN'S NBA rank. And you know I've said this before I was never really huge fan of that project to begin with because it's an aggregation of a lot of different people's rankings things rather and we only rank certain amount of players whatever but Kobe at one point was ranked twenty fifth. And you know he was still in his mind Kobe Bryant and and he wrote me in in public settings for it. Because I'm the ESPN. I come around and my website saying he's only twenty fifth best player on the planet. And how can that be possible. I love that stuff. You know it meant that you cared. It meant that he understood. Our jobs meant that he paid attention to everything You know someone who sweat the small stuff someone who does that myself. Personally I see no problem with it works Kobe Bryant and worked for other people well and I Dunno it's we shouldn't be talking about him in the past it doesn't feel right actually not put it in the past tense I it's funny 'cause I've thought about you. Know recapping him but just in terms of you know as we look back on his career not as we look back on his life right You know I think we all have these these memories and anecdotes but you know we thought we'd been uncorking them as you know from from almost like at this weekend day when when Lebron is passing him and that's one of the things that just makes it extra tragic is.

"Remember always drink responsibly. Never Stop never set you come off the bench for the Lakers and you make the All Star Team you plan. I think his Madison Square Garden and you plan against Asto Bulls Michael Jordan. That was one of the best all star Games I ever seen in the history of the game. I WanNa know how you felt about about that moment. You you're going to get your idol. WHO's on the other team you you thinking that Eddie Jones and Nick van neck's second automatically for the make the Rostov a game and you make it to to be a part of that what the moment like field for honor you see the boats talion up. You know like wait a minute. I'm starting star going to stay home team and like it became very serious to me because I didn't WanNa make it seem like Oj some bubblegum player. Yeah popularity got me in there. It was like Whoa don't know now. I can hoop prove belong here. SORTA thing going to begins. Mike was okay. Let's go shown me like I've been watching you. Play my whole life. Show me I want to see this everybody calling you black. Jesus and also that you had to show me me and I went out there and we went woodhead up and I think his respect and appreciation for me really grew that day because you saw on the biggest stage. I didn't shy away from that confrontation. I look forward to that competition and a George Karl which later became motivation we played against Denver's and never let them win a playoff series because he didn't play me the whole fourth quarter of that game hormone uh might win at it all for three quarters and then a fourth quarter the crowds waiting for me to get back in their benches me the whole fourth and it was like okay classy you get in his words on site. Denver Nuggets in the playoffs. It was like hold on. You're never you will never beat me play. Lands got you to blame for this. Yes wings is his father was so pissed. I always respected you came in as a rook and you know as a big name superstar type and you jumped into the dunk contest. You'd want to do two things. What do you think about some of the superstars. Nowadays is not being in because you know we grew up watching Jordan dominated. It was the one putting on the show and I'm not saying that I don't WanNa see somebody's other books nowadays. Some of these other boys got crazy how to but I would like to see our super superstars superstars. If you WANNA those crazy athlete forget about our let your brand do. I don't WanNa lose on the show later. Darren Gordon Levin did like how Nj and if you're a superstar you got bounced. Do No I agree and I I think the All Star game general needs a little revamping because we used used to be competitive. Yeah they used to be competitive in like fans want to see the best pickup game in the world. This is they wanNA see running up and down and Dunkin into uh-huh crazy like they wanna see what happens when you get these collection of best basketball players planet and they play in they go head up against each other. I mean you guys play harder. Pick up gaming. UCLA billions of people watching do a Hannity to sign the game these little. He's a little change in always love competing in in them. I didn't lose many on all the time we win and like. I don't think we played also don't think we've ever lost a game and we used to okay. I don't WanNA play fourth quarter. Let's go pick up. Basketball doesn't look as opposed post double team doing pick basketball but the competition. We have two cores. If you kill in our team we want to stay on the winning court. Yeah you're going to get the ball out your hand but he should be happy. I feel that you can double team on on TV AND OFF TV here. That means did you so special. You plan pickup was people double team. You Doing Pogo Yeah and what you what you do you think about so. You've got to send another warm. You're in another go home in another one here no but like I understand Dan with book saying no because in the summertime you're working on a particular skill set yeah so when you're isolated situation you wanna try the things that you've been working on the Jim doubles come. We don't have time to do that at the same time they go and double team in the season anyway. You got to figure out how to get around now how to manipulate those those those double twos over me. I see that's a luxury. You get the practice against what you really goes. Yeah Yeah you get chance to measure where those passing angles or WanNa send this message 'cause I'm GonNa be playing against them in the season anyway anyway. Ricky Davis in the summertime we play against each on WBZ news coming playing against them in a regular season also stuff it gives me bragging rights even pick a basketball eighteen right now in double team wasn't sufficient got to send three mortgage out here in summertime pick. You know if you WANNA game or you're GONNA get aspect. It's just more of an ability to kind of trash. Talk a little bit. You always viewed it. As a competition on Shaq'll is like like you couldn't wait to show everything everything that's Ugali. You went on a term with a forty points in the rotor eighty one like them twenty four years or whatever the reason. I I write to certain players that I rank higher than others like. How many years did you dominate dominate the game out a ten year span. If you got four five years down there six years you've been best player evidently you the best of of the generation of what went on a tour for four or five years straight of just domination isn't when you have feel you can have sec what was was some that you were trying to prove or rose air because you know the here's the thing when I was playing chastise a lot for being selfish saying well. You just got to fit into a team. It's about winning championships. Yeah Okay I get it. I'm doing it right won three straight okay. I got it but I also knew that when my career is over they're going to chastise me for the same thing say Oh well you're going to Greek. 'cause you play with shack. My we'll have both ways bro so it was important for me to shock to go separate separate ways yeah because I didn't want people to use it again. It's still do but it was important that I win championships without him and you get a glimpse of of what I could have done individually had not play whereas you know what I'm saying so that was a big driving factors. I hold on don't get it fucked up now lay yeah. I'm doing this thing. I'm playing with Shag Cygnus like take Mike put him with will miss. Jack was force major right so you got to kind of take it once that governors all hold on now yeah that's twenty four eight. I know number eight Kobe Bryant. Everybody in the world is stuck on that and just all of a sudden you decided to revamp yourself and turn the twenty four wider number twenty four at all that you could sold a couple of days twenty four hours a first number award in high school freshman year was number twenty four and then philosophically for me carried a significance because it was about approaching everyday I was my less and I had to have that mentality because it shifts shacks. I have to drive this team every day. There's no days off becoming in practice. We're going right and so every time I look at the numbers like today's the most important day today's the day one day. That's it right now. Help me. He'll stay locked in the triangle office when I got surly. I knew Ya play like I feel like if I got traded to the Lakers already not play. It's one in play. I got a couple of side which I run. This one play in today's era had today kids play you take the triangle will work in in this. You have the right people to teach it. Yeah I 'cause y'all slow to gain. We you had to play a job. Hey can be sped up to right so it. It conforms to the talent that you have my thirteen year. Old Daughters team runs the trying right but it's like the thing about the offense makes it so deadly that it gives you a structure within that structure you have complete freedom and so even though defensively you know what is the sequence that were executing. We have counters to town to everything and we all know it's hard to beat that because we can feel can start out run center opposite. This was WANNA start with Munaf. You deny the wing centre the opposite that plays off now we have counters come around. I used to hate when Robert or used to come up to the box free. Throw line grab the ball and you back cut yeah every task. Ask the backyard's right so like that helped me game plan yeah so these players now play accidental basketball. It drives me crazy. 'cause it's all penetrating pitch. It doesn't make the shot you may not. You have no idea who's going to be open to whatever accidental basketball we play basketball with purpose. If I got the ball the Derek Fisher on the wing I'm at the atop I know by Scott reports that you guys like to deny the top right cool deny the top. I'll move up a little bit more drag. You out here comes or you stepping the whole. Catch it your go back door. Deers drop off. I go right so plan those sequences and understanding what the defense is going to do against it and made them dangerous. That's why Chicago is so dangerous changes 'cause he knew how Utah was going to play these actions and then all five of them took advantage always keep you with spacing alway all the time flap over each a really big on you know having ten to fifteen foot spacing always coming into. I felt like I was offense. Score right you know high school coming out. It was a school but then you look at dews like you know what is the mentality that when you are you got one you got thirty would make your mind when you got thirty. Most people like all right cool. I'm going forty now. Going fifty one sixty now going what is happening in your press could like at some point. I mean I know you tired because 'cause people don't understand is like that. Take Energy Yeah. So how do you continue to just go 'cause I was in New York. When you you got the sixty and God bless my mom young boy Wilson Chandler he recovered. He killed his life his career. You made it through that but I'm sitting here watching. It and I'm like Oh. He's not stopping. He don't look like he wants..

"I had that feeling with like two. Maybe three different people the first time I got it called transition. You know you get caught and j running down your back. You transfer being out of Utah Utah. I remember that and I remember coming in to jump over the double your legs if ws to jump to Waihopai so I say then I say I had to play him four or five times. Sometimes I'm sitting there like here. We go and like the thing you know me. I'm GonNa play strong physical like the thing that I got to learn about you year. After years right. He ain't going he no. We're not GONNA get the fight so he you like going to let you do all this but like the plan you a T. MAG advance US. We're GONNA try to fifty for real like Nah. I'M NOT GONNA don't say nothing but harm. It's allowed him. He liked MOM's not about not about the happening more like a push going to happen to here. Come everybody. I'm still going to be here to spray your face. Though I I do try to let day. He only person not playing as well okay like he might any time. Some Bush heated didn't idea left left hand. How did your left hand get so good. You could shoot a floater. You'll go off the wrong. League left man and it's like how do you work going there. This consistency like my daughter right now. Her left hand is as good as our right to the basket girls team that finished better with their left hand and right hand just because of the amount of repetition and we do every day and just work on the left and isn't there's nothing to be done other than just repetition and just continue shoot shoot shoot shoot get coffee table with it in our gave him some some work to do at home. Try to eat with your federate. Your name with your left hand fans so you get caught using. It knows the things I used to do. I feel like when you got a game in your game. You Got Weapons. I like to call us. superheroes Jersey on bells the right to live crossover go ride. He going to dump like you kind of go through the categories of weapons that person got you your weapons. I never seen in a shot that you didn't feel like you couldn't make an even from the adjustment of you been athletic to you. Just gotTa get to your spots the shot they're really matters. There's a pool of shot because it all comes back to that right and so you all these moves before they don't matter eventually don't get to spite go up and shoot so doing shot. Thousands of times got me so comfortable shot that I can shoot dish anytime. There's nothing you can do about it. If you shoot a shot thousand times can change the trajectory anytime I can flatten it out anytime you want. You can be in my face not gonNA make a difference because it's on autopilot saw saying so like no matter what happens transpires here where the suggests that crossover or double doesn't matter because when I get to this binary shoot up done it thousands of times. That's in the bottom of the barrel. You know what I'm saying so it all comes down to that that show before I got to lead you know big. NBA Fans. I didn't see you before I got drafted being the second best player or arguably the best player in the League. You know I'm definitely a fan because you start our house here. Also we replay our rookie year and the CNN your play. I want in their first year. It was no question in my mind that she was the second best player. You couldn't really show us. The best way because shack was so dominant it was like sex beachill team up the whole game if the game is close Kobe Bryant after that year. I think that was a year after you shot the airball in Utah after that year what clicked to be like a Baz man on the planet. How do you stronger Auger airballs in Utah to show many strength you know in highschool you play thirty games Max Right. It gets to the League playing thirty games before October. Come around so a wears you down so wasn't I was nervous about the situation. or the shots were off all right online short. I Got Star Star. I got your Sean and I'm looking around looking at Mike and I'm looking at Mike's with Zeke strong. Lou where I'm looking at other guys around the League and I- Chai we trail spree rewrote great player I strong. Richmond has a natural based on back until he's not lifting every day. You can look Mike is Scotty is the news got four or five championships by now I need to do that right and so that's when I started lifting started getting stronger and stronger and stronger stronger and that's the adjustment makes makes ahead the fundamentals head skill under learn some things technique was defensively but then I just physical abilities caught up to the to the skill in partnership Hennessy Darius.

"Lakers magic sauce you grew the magic sauce and you got drafted to Charlotte. And what was your first reaction to her and saw that Dan you hear the Leykis purpose it well. I knew it was going on there. There was a trade in works right and so when I got drafted good representation he knows and so I get you know get drafted into the phone with the GM of the team that drafted and also get on the phone with the Charlotte. Gm He's just tells me what's going on by my media front and he goes well. It's a good thing trae and you can use you anyway mother. Okay Okay and so that's what happened on draft night so I was already. I was already triggered AMMO. I was triggered. I was reading Jim like fuck the media trying to try yeah yeah. What'd you telling me to tell okay all right. Okay you go on to a team. That's they are raised screaming like with so much talent on this team. They should be a championship team. You go onto team straight out of high school. You know I goyo over to go straight out of high school and its press. You've got eighty Jones Nick van next shock. You got all these guys this in front of you and you come come out with the total confidence of opposed to play on this level well. Here's the thing is probably good for me to play against those top players zero all stars stars playing against them every day in practice iron sharpens iron yeah the flip side of that is going to a team in which I play immediately right and all these stuff the individual stuff that people talk about the end of the career the numbers and all that stuff would be much better and he's probably be hiring also but going to the Lakers complain behind Eddie Jones and Nick Benzel taught me a lot. Barscott was were watching kind of starting to figure things out a little bit made practice very very competitive and I had to do a lot had to try to perfect damn floor because if I made a mistake coach Zhang meow Zo understanding what that feels feels like every day in practice has got to be a war because I gotta prove that I deserve the play. I deserve to be here every play matters and so. They're raised me that we was because I was taught like that too like if you WanNa play you WanNa play during Game Day. You show it in practice. Yeah man listen our vets will come to practice. They wouldn't want practice real back to back up. Whatever immune deficiency say not off problem all the scrimmage right now in all this ball to talking and we withdraw crazy but you know we were just young and you know wanted to prove ourselves and you were in the way when you decided to go out of high school. Did you think about college like was college that she was going to go to and yeah it was it was tough for me because I went through a whole oh process of of thinking it through trying to think through as clearly as could right and like you know my two top schools were Duke in North Carolina home and then trying to figure out why in coach K. Reputation for letting us play at the time Grant Hill was the player that was there and you know he was the spread the floor rant screen roles and he's kind of ahead of its time yeah US running the game with Duke with a spread offense and saying do you want to do the same with me and then on the flip side of that Carolina and and Dean Smith didn't do they the opposite he had a system yet structure but his players came off fundamentally sound and ready for basketball those those were the two teams and Dean Smith. Stop recruiting He sent me a letter and said listen everybody. I talk to seem to think you're GONNA go pro. Don't WanNa waste your time. You know best of luck if you if you change your mind just know this could be a home for you. They told you going to be a lottery. Pick wasn't really sure because I always always like the guard. The come out of high school hadn't been you know what I mean. It was like guards can can't do that. Sort of thanks of an air is up in the air by by the difference of when you came in straight out of high school you went into a League annual team. Grown men got kids families and all of that as opposed to now now. You know these guys come in nineteen. Whatever they got plenty of guys an age group everybody around the same talk about how different how different how difficult that was for you come near literally at eighteen and a real grown man. I everybody say when you get to the NBA unit grow mentally but right now. It's more of a a young man's league like when you came true grown man yeah well now. It's like college just a young go to class Brian. Level back then it was true Roman. Oh man and I think it was positives and negatives to that. The negatives relate to any of them right there things that they could do a team that I couldn't do. you go out to a to a certain club as a team. Go to a bar a team. I can't go legally can't go like us it. It was it was hard and I think that actually I had nothing to do. So what am I going to do. I'm going to play basketball basketball so I think that's we're not I think about it some the my behavior originated from and so I got into that habit so even when I became legal. I still wasn't going to hanging out team because I was so condition. Listen to focus on one thing and one thing so speaking on that. I've talked to my boys and everybody's about this. I I played in. La For four years I've never seen can you anywhere other than the state. I don't know how do how it had by so much. He will proceed like nine. I love how you the Black Bruce Wayne. He takes helicopter well. I I was obsessive Bro. I was really obsessive about this game to me. Everything was competitive advantage as well. I didn't want to be around guys. You know see see meow no one. I'm not working. I don't want that you know and I was really really about that life. I was always going at it and then to know what I'm doing. Now I had to prepare for early. Twenty s started thinking about Oh. I got to think about what comes at the end a writing. I know it was GONNA be films and novels and all that sort of stuff but I knew it was going to be something something around writing so I had to practice that when I was in playing basketball spending time with my wife Family I was writing. I didn't have time to be going out and doing stuff not to say I. I didn't do it but right at one one point US right reps too I was. I was actually helped me a lot because it helped me with assemblies metaphors. I you know with the creative writing aspect of it and being able to say things in a condensed format. How can you say a lot in in one bar one boy how can you minimize the Ark of which trying to tell helped me a lot and gives them by going through this story which you and like the rhythm of of the words by just like us like all the rest of the east coast do they all have fairly sign aw Philadelphia's you know certainly Neo ragging Philadelphia. We believe are better than anybody from anywhere right so it's a little bit of that too but like at the time. I didn't understand what it was that I was learning but in looking back it certainly because podcast show for example like the Pune. He's he's right. When you listen to the show there's a lot of harmony and rhythm even in the back and forth dialogue between characters. There's a certain rhythm that you that the ear has to be in tumor and that just comes from the music. So what made you start. The journeys talk about that the podcast a lot of your stuff in the content. I liked the fact that is geared toward the kids in trying to help him learn and just getting them especially with the books man 'cause my my fifteen euro he he's he's a big reader in like he wanted the wisdom. Dr Books this man. He wants a new book so like for him. It's something like oh he's for real like a kid has high you know reading IQ in high reading level and he he's originally from La so Kobe's you already know like Yo. I gotta get the book and then now you heard about this book so his dope to see how you you inspiring kids and that man of like that they want to go get the book. It's like you know every course shoes come out with a Ball Jersey but like the book is a whole different different lane inspiring kids. What made you go that the rich the kids are future console like how can I take information that I've learned my twenty years of playing and before that in still at down to teach kids at an early age teaching these things and nine ten years old how to deal with pressure how to do things I sorta thanks thanks. How can I distill these messages down at an early age that these kids grow up with the Lego and the pianist was something that was just finally. I don't see any shows for children anymore. That are fun. So have you showed. Oh that's for kids. Involves animals enough of the dam had them in here about a damn talking chicken anymore. I'm done give me real kids kids dealing with real issues playing sports which is the greatest metaphor we have life learning from each other parents out of the get. The overbearing coaches out of there. Let the kids just hang out and trash talk each other and learn learn that confidence and you had a bunch of teammates all star team as hall of fame teammate. What teammate that you took took something from that stuck with you for your career. A couple things one was more tactical in nature which was Eddie Jones and he taught me how to chase guards around screens off the ball so I kept getting hit screens on the gloves kind of shadow. He was excited. He was great. He trailed behind you trail behind outside shoulder get around to pick. He body up to his slide right through that. Oh Yeah taught me that that helped me out a lot and I use that forever Gary Payton as well taught me how to get through screens on on the ball those things yeah because like you know getting hit with ball screens is like the worst feeling for guard when Your Garden Wall and so he taught me how to move up into to the ball handler make yourself thin and then slide through screen those the two things that I take the you think like our era was so competitive that we weren't given no secrets. Chris out like this era is like you know. Also we always we never got a chance to sit out have conversation conversation. We joke that we were so competitive but it always was the respect factor that I grew up in an era where you just play a level basketball higher than yours and that's how you work going again. I never was taught how to come from the hood. I never was taught how to go on. Jimmy put the work in on you. GotTa put Your Weight Room Work into like I got to the League again. I want to go into the room playing eighty two games on my body's breaking sure on down the Ho Ho like what you what was the I had some really good mentors information was in Goslin share information generally but if you ask they just may especially if they know you're cut from the same cloth. GP GP me he went on and on on and he loves and we were playing may face them in the playoffs right but he was still sharing information because of the respect factor of furthering game. It's always there. You might win share information with nobody you know but he did with me because knows. I'm about their life and so when I had those mentors giving me guidance you you know Jerry West is agreements will remind list goes on and on and on man I agree guidance. You just saw this. I looked at what they could do and I was like I can do it too. That's the worst thing will work harder than they did and see why. I've got drafted right. We always dard one the first one I once alone Mike. I'm like do the biggest comparison I give people. When I I had to start checking I remember movie love and basketball right and she's like like Gardner. Grill this out like that's a lie. I had that feeling with like two. Maybe three different people the first time I got it called transition. You know you get caught and j running down your back. You transfer being.
