"He's Mike Meets Magic. There were some. I'm big shock. Who would dare the greatest athlete in the history of Sports Michael Jordan the most talented the hardest worker the most competitive the most successful? Who would dare try to match that? Not as something new six foot. Six shooting guard studied his mannerisms. Clearly as we all how did write his moves the way he dressed everyone. Kobe didn't say no watch this. I'm going to do in in chest. It's called an asymmetrical strategies. Someone opens one way if you counter with the same move since they have the initiative. You're always behind so there's something called an asymmetrical strategy. They opened one way. And you put pressure in in another way so you don't have to face them head on. Kobe said No. There's nothing GonNa be asymmetrical about my strategy. I'm going to do Mike better than Mike and he almost got there like. It's the most insanely competitive. No smoke and mirrors. I believe in myself the that we saw in that generation and the fact that that he would be the one to dare to do it and then basically do it is is a testament to the kind of belief the atom in himself and I think why he could be satisfied with himself in his second act conversations that Cobian. I've had over the years I would. I would submit to all of you. That the biggest reason why he was so happy now even more so than it is playing days is because he had more control over his own. Happiness you know when I was hosting quite frankly that was on. ESPN two from two. Two Thousand and five to two thousand and seven people were looking at me and they were talking about my interviewing skills and you know what had the potential to be one day and they looked at somebody like Oprah could be you and years to come copay came up to me and said an no disrespect to oprah whatsoever. He was like the hell with Oprah Harpo. It's not about being in front of the camera. It's about owning it. It's about owning your own product. It's about being control in control of of your own destiny. He never felt that way until the twilight years of his career. He comes into the league straight out of high school. He's got approved he's he's one of the early ones that depart from high school to come straight to the pros. Okay after Kevin Gone Net knows boys okay fine. So he's got something to prove He's an all star star before he's even a starter so he has to prove he's a starter he becomes a star but you haven't won a championship. You Win a championship but you you did. It was shot dead. Ultimately you do a without shack you carry your own team and people forget that that particular time when shack departure from the Los Angeles Lakers not shack but there were people in the NBA and the outskirts of La Community. Rather that wanted to who do serious harm to cope because they blamed him for shack. The party why was that significant because shack was the guy that shack a clause he will go into the community he was very filling philanthropy. Can what have you very charitable with. Its time and and an all the giving that he did they took it as a personal affront compromised because of Kobe Bryant and they wanted to do him homage shack ultimately stepped in and was like right now. This is just basketball. Don't lose perspective. You do nothing to that man. There were people literally who want to do harm to him. So what does Kobe Do. He's knows about all of this. He senses all of this and he says I'm GonNa make everybody love me again because I'm going to deliver the one thing that they value and that's championships. And so he i. He demands trade then after that the Trade Kwame Brown acquired Pago so he goes to three consecutive. NBA Finals. He went back to back. Titles you know over Orlando over Boston okay. So then that question was answered. Then okay okay. What are you going to do here because Lebron boys go to Miami Kobe's ready to go? But the Gaza fading then ultimately coaching changes injuries. These comments to play and whatever everywhere he turned there was always a question to be answered questions from somebody else that he had to answer about his life his career his destiny is vision. What his goals should be and then ultimately he retires from the game of basketball and the question stop them from everywhere else but in his own self? He had questions questions that he wanted to answer for him. But he was no longer feeling the need to defer or or to you know capitulate a two or to appease anybody else other than himself the happiness Katie from he had control as far as the legacy. I WanNa ask you you this. My Dad always says this quote how you do anything is how you do everything and I feel like he did everything with excellence and he inspired so many people including myself. You see a picture. Sure Kobe to step your game up. You want to hone your craft in another level and I think how he led. He was a trail blazer. He was a pioneer. Can you speak to some of that as his legacy legacy inspiring others shore. I mean he inspired athletes in all sports as Laura eluded to I think he inspires people outside of the world sports he certainly transcended sports in his impact in the people. Who cared for him he? He's spawned a generation of people. who were Kobe fans? who weren't even Laker Fans Ryan Clark who we all know and Love was? He texted me yesterday. Saying I never met the man and I'm crying. I'm sitting in my house crying right now for man that I never ever met Ryan Clark will tell you he's not a Laker Fan. He's a Kobe Fan Kobe hat. He inspired a Phantom of passion. His fans that was unique. It was actually even even different. I covered Michael Jordan. That's how I start. We all came to this from different places. I started in Chicago covering Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was beloved everywhere including I fans of teams that wanted to beat him but there there is a specific passion. And I can't put my finger on how diagram there are Lakers fans and there are Kobe Fan. And there's an overlap but they're not all right and that's exactly right and even Jordan didn't inspire that there is a passionate dedication education amongst the hardcore. Kobe Fan that I think you're you're touching on campus. He created sadder version. Why did he he may want to be a better version of our he created stands? Kobe was the embodiment of practice. Makes Perfect. It's perfect practice makes perfect perfect. You take your passion and you work it until your craft is perfect. That's and because of that because you put in the work and it wasn't just going through the motions but it was with your passion at that point. Kobe always believed he was going to win. He had perfect self confidence But it wasn't just kind of baseless faith it was faith because he put in the work and therefore had no talent right and it was born of his passion for the game. So I think anyone I think you just mentioned molly. You had a an image of Kobe. You were inspired. Because it's it's like this. What is this thing that I loved to do and if I really love it and want to be great at it I have to work it until I know? There's nothing else to work and I got it. I didn't don't even want to do the show today. I felt sick to my stomach in Mamba Mentalities in my mind you gotta power through it. You know one thing that I would say to about what Kobe brings brings to the table. Just From a legacy standpoint is the credibility that he lends to anything that he puts his stamp on and I would put women's sports in that category specifically glee the WNBA and and just the work that he did to add credibility where look there should be embedded credibility. But there's not all the time and for Kobe to stand on anything and say that it was good or that it had potential was to mean that it would instantly be looked at differently and in a more positive light and I think that's one of the things that makes all of us want to be better when you think about him and there's a genuine quality because he opened himself up to be viewed by everybody in in any number of ways that then he can look at everything from that standpoint. And that's how. I started champing women in Sports. By the way I love the question with. Oh Steven A.. Because what is it. I can't answer.

I'm hiding behind a twenty six year old and you don't understand that was going on is last last year was a disaster despite Lebron's great numbers disaster and reception so now he's like received me differently. I am not the the king even on I'm trying to get the Lakers back to where they work is not going to be all on me. We going to share this responsibility because it would happen. It was just like he brought the analogy with the quarterback back and you're mentioning that no star player has just given up the reigns the Bron James is still going to be primary ball handwrite so it's still going to go through him. He's still going to be going through but he has the one that beat the initiate the office through so he's still very much in charge is just a big boy. I get a a lot of work done. I think is just in terms of perception. I it's the pursuit he's going to control the ball but he's created the perception that everything's everything's running through. Ad Lebron set and if you can just show I started thinking about more than you think koby ever turned it over to anybody Tom. Tom Brady's forty to turn it over to know about Michael Jordan this is I don't WanNa say as bad as it would be like Michael Jordan going to the wizards. We're going to run this.

And then you're gonna these high school kids, coming up in a couple of years does LeBron play long enough for his son. To come right out of high school. Right. It's almost a guarantee because because brawny is going into his freshman year. I believe. Yes. And the bronze contract will be up as his son is a freshman. So if he's a true free agent at that time he could join whatever team is his son, if his son is good enough to be drafted. Maybe his son goes to Duke, and that's when LeBron signs with, like Charlotte or something. So he could be right next to his son, and then they play their together. How about that? But his son will also be in your of you don't have to go to college. Yeah, I think the timing will be pretty close to that, or were already be into the go right out of high school.

"I get tired of folks say, well, you know, this person's a nice guy that person but night got that don't have a damn thing to do whether or not he shoot or he can play. We can put the ball on the floor. He could spend or whatever the case may be you need to can. Or you can't market. There's a whole bunch of brothers in the NBA that are pretty damn good people. All right. But that don't nobody's wishing for them to do. Well, they ride the bench or whatever. 'cause you use the player. You can't monk helpful is the former number one overall pick. And you know, what I pay attention to more than anything else. It's not just about what he can do. It's about what the other dudes can do that you passed up on to take him. So let's go down the list. You got a guy by the name of Jason Tatum. That was taking number three overall. Not what's he not only was he taking number three overall the Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers traded up from the third spot to move up to the number one spot forcing it a first round pick and still passed on him in favor of Marquel, folks. I'm sorry. It's a team with your division. Not just your conference, which are division that pass up. Jason tatum. A right or rather than that allowed you to train up to get you more careful, and they knew they were going to get paid them all along you got to show me something you can't get out on the court. You gotta jump shot with people literally applauding because for the first time, you actually hit it three point shot that they're begging you literally clamoring for you inside of the wells Fogle Senate and Philadelphia Pennsylvania because you will why. Open what seventeen foot baseline jumper, and you would have taken shot that is unacceptable. You the number one overall pick in the draft number one one of the leader score in the nation coming out of college. I understand you had injury understanding mess. Mature shots understand that you got to get things together before you can do certain things. But dammit, you gotta do it. That's what the number one pick is all about Brett Brown coach of the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers. He's on the phone with me talking last year. And we're talking about why don't you play in law? Kill balti- show me some promise he can put the ball of the floor, coach wives, and he planned and the man did everything he could to dance around telling me what he honestly felt which was the guys got up his knowledge and understanding of the game of basketball the plays that are being called him. How to utilize parts around him? So he can be the player that a number one picking supposed to be that's basketball, fellas. And so when I look at Marquel faults. I'm expecting. I'm not hoping I'm expecting him to at least show me that he's got Dane, and he ate the second coming of some Kwame Brown. That is me that is who I am. And dammit, I ain't changing. Nah, appreciate you. Keeping it one hundred when you paint the picture that way. Obviously it was a competitive draft. They trade up to get him. You have Donovan Mitchell in that same draft.

"Talk to us about week seven of the NFL season giants, Atlanta, Falcons play tonight. Let's hope the giant show up in 'lanta probably will win this game because the giants will find a way to mess it up, but just show us something, give New Yorkers some reason to hope clearly ain't gonna be victory, but could you do something for us pretty pleased, but she'll go on top would be nice to get back to the calls. Let's go. To Chris, you live Stephen a. on ESPN radio, what's going on. Call three three quick from what I saw this weekend. So free to touch on Jerry, like number one was what I saw from for Lonzo. I feel like Stephen, a very will have to get rid of him or magical to make some decisions and loops six. I'm looking at a guy, we draft number two, Stephen standing outside shooting proponents. He may forum that's a good sign, but we didn't drop them to do that. And. Number two, I got. I got one. Hold on. Let's sit there. I point. I got one thing you could say really, really positive about Lonzo ball. Are you ready for this. He ain't Marquel faults. What a disaster. I mean, listen, I'm sincerely hoping that they fix more kill Foltz, whatever's wrong with him. I mean, this dude is is shooting thirty three percent from the field. He's attempted three, three point, three, three pointers on the season, shoot thirty percent. He's at one of them. I just don't see it. I mean, this guy's number one overall, pick I listen. I hope I'm wrong. I'm rooting for Marquel folks. He's got. He's starting to get me to think about Kwame Brown. I mean, that's the way I'm going. Chris throws a big bust. I mean, that's where I'm going. I mean, come on till for Jason Tatum to go number three. Overall. I mean, look, I I wanna Lonzo to do better, get more aggressive, give more accurate with his jump shot, but but he ain't Marquel folks. No, I agree. I agree, but we over. Do it. Okay. Number two, real quick stagnate. What I saw for Lonzo Paul, you know what I think it is. I think that Rondo in my opinion, I think he kinda resents Paul because I think he tells like Paul gets recognition, he's maybe doesn't really deserve the simple where because of the two thousand eight Olympics when when Chris Paul got selected along with kid and Darren Williams and Rhonda was left off, that's been Clinton. Right, right. And I just fact that Paul never won anything just playing those first conference finals and Rama's champion. I feel like there's some resentment the my last point eight. I hate saying this huge Carmelo fan, but I think I'm starting to compare the LeBron Carmelo when they're obviously drafted in the same class to what we're to what we saw from Chris, Paul and Darren Williams, Darren Williams, and Chris, Paul used to five for best point guard and made for a long while now Dara's nowhere to be found. I think that sad to say, I think are on that same direction. Steve name along. I'm not insulted by that. That's kinda accurate. I mean by that is that it wasn't like there was ever a scrub he could play, but the elite level and the want it factor that Chris Paul had in him, certainly differentiated him from Dan Williams and one could easily make that argument about Carmelo compared to LeBron James. So, yeah, I just 'cause I, it's funny. I was watching a game and I just want he doesn't seem to until he's kind of lost involved, but he's not engaged his team. I gotta I don't know about the teammate part because they love him and he's cool, but he's not what it used to be. And you know he's listening. He could still make shots. He just got to step up and get more aggressive and start making and remind everybody with a prolific scorer. He is otherwise, we will be saying about Carmelo. I appreciate the call, man. I gotta run predated Austin, you live. Stephen, they talked to me. Longtime brother, that will always be welcome in mine. I to Brecon quarries. The first regarding Eric Reed situation, I won't profess myself as being knowledgeable in the sense, but I heard you mentioned the President Trump did not speak up because of Colin Kaepernick, but simply because the league in itself, but I think that the league will. Oh, well, I didn't say that..
"kwame brown" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Is assemble right now as far as experience and guys were been there done that one won a championship and they struggled, and I'm talking about struggled against a against the east and you're talking about they went seven games with all the depot and nobody with the Pacers. They had went seven games. This is LeBron James against the Celtics with two stars missing, and it was a struggle now to coming out west. I just they could be a seventh, six, seven seed people have them as a three. The seat or four seat. I just don't see that right off the bat. I think every team out west will look at him as a challenge will be up for them game after game. After gangway, there will be no easy games where people go. All the Lakers are coming to town. This'll be a cakewalk. Listen, I'm not at all. You actually help make my point on the eagles by making my point on the Lakers. The thing that we can't account for is the fact that every team or every fan base and every team has that game circles. Like there's eighty two NBA games. Every game is not played at a high level, but when LeBron and the purple and gold come to town, it's played at a much higher level, right. Every seat is sold and there's, there's that they start out with a very difficult scheduling twelve the first fifteen games against playoff teams from last year. But the big thing is you can't account for what a team is going to be like, because they're gonna play above their level like now LeBron's going to lift up their level. And I do think that the young players are going to be better because it's not a static environment right band. Is going to be better. Josh hearts can be better. Lonzo is going to be better second year together. Third year in the league second year league, they're going to be better, and then you add in the broom hope. So Kwame Brown never got better this players who don't get better dug in their second year. Would you admit that? Yes, you're getting better. You're getting worse. Grinning. I'm going to get better at Tony, your soul. I think branding, I'm gonna get better, get worse. I would think he would get better, Josh heart gonna get better. I would think he was Lonzo sure about Lonzo ball. Okay. So the point is I think they're going to get better and I think LeBron will raise their level. I think their bench and LeBron fall down as he gets older father, tires, undefeated, everybody thinks LeBron is going to win. There's no, it's a great point that stopped made enough that LeBron James was not the same player defensively, he doesn't move, but he did. He played more games, but he wasn't as affective as active defensively gaming game out as he had been previously his career, but like you'd admit the Lakers bench this year coming into the year, you know, like, look Lance off the bed. Lance started, don't love lances bench player. Love Rondo off the bench. Love javale McGee starter bench love, especially considering he under. He's bringing that culture that you learned Ingold set. My point is I do think we don't account enough for how you're viewed how the level of attention to each game. That's the big thing with the eagles is they may be better, but everyone's going to be shooting for them because everybody's biggest game and. It's the same thing with the la-. No, I agree with that the eagles, but I just think that you have a driving force when it's a quarterback who played at that level last year. You remember he went through the NFL and he was clearly DMV. People got hurt in the final couple of games and it cost him, yes, it looked. Minnesota had a had case keenum as their quarterback and they lost elven cook. We Dallas Cowboys didn't have Zeke Elliott for six games last year that change the the New York Giants lost all their wide receiving corps. Their defense was fighting months and sells their head coach was a joke, like their division is legit..

"Is assemble right now as far as experience and guys were been there done that one one, a championship and nation struggled, and I'm talking about struggled against against the east and you're talking about they went seven games with the depot and nobody with the Pacers. They had went seven games. This is LeBron James against the Celtics with two stars missing and it was a struggle now to coming out west. I just think it'd be a seventh, six, seven seed people have them. There's a three seat or four seat. I just don't see that right off the bat. I think every team out west will look at him as a challenge will be up for them game after game. After gangway, there will be no easy games where people go, oh, the Lakers are coming to town. This'll be a cakewalk. Listen at all. You actually help me make my point on the eagles by making my point on the Lakers. The thing that we can't account for is the fact that every team or every fan base and every team has that game circles. Like there's eighty two NBA games. Every game is not played at a high level, but when LeBron and the purple and gold come to town, it's played at a much higher level, right. Every seat is sold and there's, there's that they start out with a very difficult scheduling twelve with I fifteen games against playoff teams from last year. But the big thing is you can't account for what a team is going to be like, because they're gonna play above their level. Like now LeBron's going to lift up their level. And I do think that the young players are going to be better because it's not a static. Virement right banding is going to be better. Josh heart can be better.

So Kwame Brown never got better this players who don't get better dug in their second year. Would you admit that? Yes, you're getting better. You're getting worse grinning. I'm going to get better at twenty years old. I it branding. I'm gonna get better, get worse. I would think you would get Josh heart gonna get better. I would think he was Lonzo sure about Lonzo ball. Okay. So the point is I think they're going to get better and I think LeBron will raise their level. I think they're Ben Chen LeBron fall down as he gets older, father, tires, undefeated, everybody thinks LeBron is gonna win.

We douse Cowboys didn't have Zeke Elliott for six games last year that change the the New York Giants lost all their wide receiving corps. Their defense was fighting months themselves. Their head coach was a joke, like their division is legit. I think the schedule and people's attention to them and the fact that frankly, the NFC had a litany of injuries last year helped the eagles just does it probably help the patriots as well. And I don't know if they're going to get that benefit this year. Crazy. Rob Parker, check him out. And I mean that. Today was on the money the that's an actual association of black journalists..
