"Good. And so Larry Johnson is Number three on today's green list of the best players number one overall picks not to win a championship in the lottery area Number two. Who is Ewing? Number two is Patrick Ewing of the New York Knicks Rookie of the Year 11 Time All Star All N ba team multiple times it and you don't need me to tell you how great a player Patrick Ewing was. Patrick Ewing is very near the top of the list of the greatest players ever not to win a championship without without narrowing it down to anything. He's there with Carl Malone and Charles Barkley and others. But he isn't number one on today's lesson. There was one player who was the number one overall pick in the lottery era and never won a championship that I have ahead of him. Always looking our stage manager Brandon to see if you've got it. I see the look of confusion on your face. Can you guess who it is? Here we go. Number one number one we in here talking about practice. I mean, listen, we're talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game. We're talking about practice. Allen Iverson 27 a half points, six assists for his career MVP of the league in 2001, 11 time All Star. Three time all MBA First team four times scoring champ. No debate about it. Allen Iverson is number one on this list. He deserves that. I love Patrick Ewing, but I can't argue Ewing's career over Allen Iverson. And so that is today's Green list. The five best overall number one picks. And the lottery are and not to win the championship. Five the C. Webb for his D rose three years. Hell, J two.

"Yeah I. It's essentially the goal at the end of your life. You know as a Christian is one on God at the when you face him to say well done good and faithful servant and and that means that you follow God's lead for your life and some people that lead Lee takes them into a spotlight and some people take them away from the spotlight Kirk Cameron. He's an old school you know he's a he's a part of that. TV show back in the eighties and stuff. He became a Christian and he he said then and I give him credit for that I think sometimes he. He's Corny with the way he goes about. You know saying some things I mean. I agree with what he's saying. But the way it's presented anyways He is out of the spotlight but still in the spotlight. And he's using the any kind of notoriety to his name for the glory of God and that's what he's done ever since he. He became a Christian. I think he's him becoming a Christian essentially cancelled that show because he wasn't willing to do certain things even for that show which we know shows back in the eighties. Were much more pain than what we see today a day. So I mean it's just and you mentioned about the M. K.. Ultra I mean. Bill Clinton came out in the nineties and apologize publicly for that program going on. It's not a conspiracy versus theory that's real it's factual did that. And so when you when you hear interviews with people who were involved with M. K.. Ultra mine experiments. You gotta take heat to it and one the things that I've noticed because I've talked to people I don't think no. I don't think I've ever had anybody on this show yet. That's been involved in M. K.. Ultra but I've talked to several people off air and and one thing is a very common thing is that M. K.. Ultra tends to drive people crazy literally and leaves the person in a situation where air if they talk about it. Everybody's asking what came first M. K.. Ultra then the crazy or crazy then M. K.. Ultra and so it. It's really hard art for these people to talk about it. Publicly people to take them serious because they they literally the stories are so intense and insane and then on top of it. A lot of these people aren't very healthy mentally. Because of what they went through. And you can't blame them and It's just it's just crazy man. It's a crazy world we're living in and Ah Let's bring it into the the sports thing with and entertainment Side of stuff We we we talked about these musicians and stuff but these musicians are very very known for doing these halftime super bowl shows and everybody talks about you know. I shouldn't say everybody. People in our industry talk about the Super Bowl and the conspiracy behind the halftime shows. Do you give any weight to that as somebody who is in the NFL as far as the NFL getting behind signed the idea of a tanic symbol satanic symbolism in the Super Bowl. They've been doing this for for for years and that's dead music. Music Industry is basically the now. Because it's been in the basketball for so long basketball now. A third day of MK Ultra and some of the toes. This is some of the players and some of the key players really and when you see the NFL is starting to merge just like a it's like a cloud that you see drifting over into the NFL NFL. And that's what you're GONNA see. Jesse Jackson Justin Timberlake. That was a ritual. The Rangoon wanted to believe it or not. That was a ritual. Knew exactly what they were GONNA do. Exactly why do you did it. And then when you see now like I said again. Jay Z the FREEMASON. What they believe in now him signing with The NFL that is what you're going to see you go down his artists. You see those who already thrown up the devil horns and all the esoteric nonsense. They have their music videos. You're now going to see that prime. I time on the Super Bowl and west. which you'RE GONNA see you're GONNA see? Let me let me give you cheat statements statements and now in the NFL. You're GonNa see AH UNICORN YOU'RE GONNA see everything about love you're going to get a lot of stars you're GONNA get. Maybe a couple of lightning bolts which describes the fall from the fall from Saints Fall From Heaven to get all of those things. It's GonNa it's GonNa look like a medieval techno show and it's GonNa be all a ritual for saying there's always going to be about it you just those key element you're gonNA see UNICORNS. Everything is love all one thing. The one world government world we want to be in the only one that they want. And that's that's when you know that the Satan Interest Prepa show up at NFL. Yeah and you know. I never thought about that. I've heard briefly briefly about Jay z signing on with the NFL and it never crossed my mind about what that impact is because he's so In entrenched in so much things with our culture and society that I it just I just glossed over I never. I didn't even think about it. But you're absolutely right and the things that you just listed people who are skeptical of say. Well what's wrong with UNICORNS UNICORNS. I mean this guy is talking about UNICORNS. Just mythical creature that you know people wear on their tee shirts when they feel a little a little silly but in but that's the point though right the point is that they use symbolism that seems on the surface innocent until you actually know what it means just like the pedophile symbolism that the F. B. I. has in their database you can go to the FBI Website whatever that is they have in their database the symbols that pedophile issues. Let each other know what they're looking for. It's pizza. It's hot dogs it sauce. It's Walnut Walnut. These are code words for children and so on the surface. It doesn't seem like anything but when you actually know what they're talking about it's everything exactly and and the thing is if you looking at if you look at commercial evenly when senator night live yet and they're always introducing pizza that is what they're talking about. It goes over people's heads. They're talking about pedophilia and children. Every kind of pizza ad or something about Peter or even when you see your favorite TV show and it's it's always listening. Let's go get some pizza. They think that's funny. They think the put those things in there is funny to them. Because you guys don't know what it means and they know what they mean. They love to talk about. They'll throw people in anything. They can get their hands on Sorta make it funny. Because they're talking about abusing children in the morning do that all all the pet pedophile are laughing their butts off because they know exactly what they're talking about and you know it's even with the idea of the pizza gate scandal scandal or not scandal but the idea pizza gate They want they want people Ranting about pizza because pizza gate has has become a thing where it's like when you say pizza gate it discredits you already. Even though pizza is one of the most Used symbols as to you a pedophile coating now that they have pizza gate as title of things that are medically credits. You anytime you bring this up. And so whether weather Comet Ping Pong Pizza Parlor really was what the conspiracy is or not doesn't matter because the fact that Pizza Gate itself Hashtag Pizza Gate is real anytime you bring this up. It really discredits you from anything when it comes to just the general public and that's what that's the whole thing here is that they do things to to to scratch you on the surface so that there's no digging into things they they don't let me let me let me give you a homework for your for. You're listening to the thought there. Go Look at the Comet Pizza. You'll see them. In the in the four arrows you'll see a mood a crescent moon and a star. Now go look at the bathroom. That which is what they represent that transsexual goat. Look at the bathroom that you'll see the same star and crescent moon on the bathroom adamant actually already connected. You're absolutely right. You're absolutely right. I in fact as far as the sign goes. I can't picture to my head but if that's what's it's on the sign it it's again that symbolism and you have to give weight to the symbolism like you just do they're not gonNA come out and say haywar pedophile they tell you in simple symbolic natures and so the more you learn about the symbolism truly learn about it not just hey let me hit twitter and see what the latest symbol is out there. Research look into find out. What real symbols are? You'll know what you're looking for and it will stand out to you and you see it now and so oh I I mean we could go on and all this stuff And we did talk about the sports and the halftime show the super bowl beyond say Her halftime show Joe. Just I think if you didn't even know what to look for as far as simple some symbolism goes if you just said to somebody hey watched his halftime show and you tell. Tell me if you think there's anything evil ninety attack just evil about it. I think most people would be like. Yeah there's just seemed like something off and I think I saw her face transforms that did you see that. Yes everybody saw that. Her face literally transformed during the performance like she literally gave herself to Sasha which is the demon that she summons to in her body to possess her body during performances. She transformed right in front of you. And it's okay because when you have love when you have A satanic nature underlying everything that cultures about everything that culture stands on when when it peaks through the surface. It's okay because because those that are in it will tell you it's okay and most people will just fall along with it and I mean we're talking about sports and athletes and stuff. I mentioned this on my show before just a couple of weeks ago and I'll tell everybody you are the one Larry that brought to my attention. I was scrolling through your twitter feed and I saw video Lebron James now you you went to the I think you were drafted in two thousand three right. Yeah Okay so you're drafting. Two thousand three. I graduated high school in two thousand three. So did Lebron James. Lebron Orange wants to the pros in two thousand three. So you gotta you gotTa understand as somebody who. I was huge in the basketball coach. It's not huge but I did coach on the college I level division three. It's pretty much a high school team. But anyways I love the sport absolutely love it and so when when I graduated high school and there's this kid my age that they're saying it's a next Lebron James I'm instantly a fan and my entire adult life. I've supported reported him. Lebron James isn't clutch. Lebron James I thought everybody on when I when I saw that video right away disavowed. Some vowed I publicly disavowed him on instagram live. I said it on my show and I'll say it again. I do not support that man whatsoever. Larry I'm going to send and you a picture that I've found Shortly after I saw that video and honestly if you didn't post that video I wouldn't have noticed what I saw this picture. It's a picture of Lebron James Junior Junior. I saw it on instagram. And he just got done shooting a shot and you see him getting ready to run down the court. dwayne Wade is courtside yelling. You know yeah you know. And he's wearing wearing a jumpsuit..

"Uh-huh planned for you today. We have Larry Johnson former running back from the Kansas City chiefs. Coming on the show to talk about a lot of stuff see. I came across his twitter page and he actually. They had a lot of stuff on there about things that we kind of talk about on the show and so I reached out to him asked him to come on the show and he obliged by saying yes so here we going to bring on Larry Right now. So Larry how you doing man man. I'm glad you're here so just so the audience knows it's a hit and miss when you're reaching out to people and stuff I mean I don't do a whole lot of more just because I have so many people come to me for interviews but every once in a while I cross paths with somebody that I would like to have that person on the show just to pick their brain a little bit and you're one of them. I just kind of fell. Cross your twitter. I I had no idea The things that you talk about and stuff and it turns out that a lot of things you talk about really jive well with what I talk about on the show and what people my audience kind of look at and I reached out to you on twitter and I say within the hour. Are you reach back. And you're like yeah I quote. You said I got nothing else going on these days. Let's do it. I'm just like all right. I was I was really glad allows you decide to come on man and Just kind of start things off and stuff if you could just kind of. We're not going to focus on your career today. IF PEOPLE WANNA look you up they can and but you know I I know. You're originally from the Maryland area. I'm actually right outside of Philadelphia. I'm pretty familiar with the area. You're from and You know just kind of run through a little bit of how you make your raced through the NFL man. Because I know we're GONNA PROBABLY WANNA talking about some things over later I you know I got drafted first round twenty six and I went to the Kansas City chiefs. They had a really good career with slow when it started out I had a lot of multiple arrests. You know didn't know really how to handle not playing clean and earlier in my career over at some relationship. Women You know I kinda bounced back from that made it to the pro bowl twice then after my my career after seven years. Not You the older you get. You know it's hard to stay running back position because the NFL officers changed literally every year. And so I ended Play on my last bit of games and for the Bengals didn't with the Redskins then I kinda like into my career thousand like eleven or twelve to around that time with the Miami Dolphins and at that same year my daughter was born. So I my priorities kind of switch from you know trying to get into football again. This this came from me being trying to be a good father. That's kind of my career web but I I enjoyed it. I had you know I broke records. That are still records today so I I always love the fact that I'd have to play longer to make an impact. I did it with a short amount of time so I'm kind of thankful for for that. Yeah absolutely absolutely and you know you being on the redskins. I'm an eagles fan. So I I do remember you being on the on the redskins but to be honest with you looking at the NFC east really as a Philadelphia Fan. We don't really care a whole lot about any team except for the cowboys and so like and right now the the eagles just are they suck this sort of the cowboys just like the cowboys are trying to give the conference to the eagles. It's not working out though but anyways Yeah Man I wanted you to run through that stuff real quick and also also the fact that you did go to Penn State and you know I actually I was planning on going this direction right away right away at least we'll do it Speaking of Penn state did you ever have. We're just we're gonNA just rip the band aid off here. Did you ever have a run INS with Sandusky. And I know you're probably familiar with that whole thing with what uh went on there and I think that that definitely happened like the exposure of it happened after you graduate. Left Penn State. But did you ever have an inkling. Where's ever or any rumors going around Penn.? State that Sandusky was who he was No like he ran the second mile charity foundation which is funny because it was a phone where children could go of all ages to get the life instructor actually my prom date. She was from originally from Ohio. She went to the second second mile because I guess she came from a bad background and she ended up better opportunities to she went to jared dot the second mile which is like a house that they had and they lived at the house. The school the girl went to school with me. We became really good friends It was two girls actually became really good friends and we went the prime together. And then when I went to Penn state In Ninety eight you know you think of it. I'm trying to get on the football field and trying to a shooting at night and we would go. We would go from the locker room and to study hall. Aw It will be here with the same kid. I guess he got busted but we just see him. You know working out in the weight room and why the touch away their kid love to be just around us around the football like you know. He came back to but we didn't think anything of it like we thought everything was up like we always saw her with the kids. And you saw always joking around around being a goofball. That's just how he was and we just didn't put anything together. 'cause like I said we were we were kids are teenagers ourselves and we were just going from his football football practice study hall and back the practice routine but we really didn't see much of other than what he shown to us when he was in the weight room with the kids. Yeah and I know coming from sports background. Like you're just generally like you go into a system coaches that are in that system pretty much gain in your trust right away. I mean it's because it's the coach especially in college level. They brought their responsible for bringing you in and you're not really looking at people sideways. Thinking what are they doing. What's the agenda agenda here until they actually really do give you reason? And so if he was good at hiding this stuff that clearly he was then I could see how people who were around him every day could not have any clue as to what was going on and you know. I think it's interesting though. This is the Dusky situation can can be like a mirroring situation when it comes to. What's going on this year with Epstein in I if we don't learn from history we're GONNA repeat it? I think the Sandusky Eski thing was swept under the carpet very quickly. It was hot is a hot topic for a minute and then it was just done and I fear that this Jeffrey free obscene thing is following the same pattern and I think that Sandusky might have been running like a a similar type of organization when it comes to the stub because when I understand Sandusky was was involved with a lot of children over the years not just one. There's a lot of accusers that came forward and same thing with Jeffrey Epstein. And it's it doesn't bode well. I I mean that was a State School Epstein probably Intelligence probably was part of intelligence in some way at least getting US funding that way and I I mean let me ask you this. What do you think about the situation? I think it's very I think the witnesses are not really being for telling you as far as who else is involved keep mentioning these girls bless. Their hearts will come out and speaking. But if you're not willing to go the whole route with it then don't oh come out and say anything I feel like they know who else was there. They've been on this island with millions of things they must have been a hundred politicians. One hundred Movie Star Actors. You have to go somebody else other than put in jeopardy I've seen it goes further and beeper and I think the reason why they can't do it is because those politicians are still in power. Those politicians are still working and they're still getting benefit of not getting their name called out and I think that is the problem. With this whole scenario. They keep leaking tiny itty bitty pieces of information to the point where the public are not going to be cared about it. No more and I think that's why they do. Would you do it this way enough to where people only care they match up a little bit like Hansel and Gretel get the break from people are going to be Whatever we okay we did with this policy for that politicians? We don't care anymore and that's what they're doing especially now that he's you know whether you believe he's dead or not. I don't think anybody. Nobody believes that he committed suicide. But the fact that he's supposedly out of the picture now with his life I think it's making it easier for them to sweep things under the carpet carpet and It's it's a shame and I agree with you that these women who are accusers and stuff I'm sure they know more names than what has at least come out to the public and I do wonder do you think they're afraid. Do you think that they they seen these people. They know kind of power they have they know are they still have power. Do you think that they're maybe afraid to talk about it. Because maybe they're afraid of they know the connections there are. They might be afraid to further life. I would be too obviously the body back that. Somebody's participate rack up just for other politicians agreeing with them. And you gotta see you know tampering of juries and judges and we feed this as something that would be a. You know a suspense movie thriller. But it's real life and these women have to deal with you. Know what did they say. What can they say and they can only say but so much otherwise? It's their life livelihood. Is You know their their family's livelihood. It can have that trickle down effect of how many people can come out who can say what. But it's it's it's a sad scenario because everybody wants to know the truth you're not GonNa get all of the you only get half of it. Yeah you're not GonNa get all the truth and that's something. I've been saying that if you're expecting you know the name Bill Clinton didn't drop tomorrow as somebody. who was you know? They're doing these things it's definite now. They're not going to say that they're not GonNa do that. I don't think you're ever ever GonNa get that And so like you said. It's like a trickle effect in overtime. It gets week I mean it's just like a slow trickle effect and overtime. Most people are moving. They already did move on. I mean I. I've been saying a lot of people have been saying The the impact the impeachment stuff. I mean whether that's legit or not is irrelevant to the fact. Act that that came out right around the same time that Epstein kill himself and all the sudden it's Kinda pushed to the background because the impeachments taking the front page and then you have. ABC Eh hiding. The fact that they knew about this for three years and didn't explode exposed story. And it's funny. How the impeachment stop can just kind of take over the headlines and you don't got to worry about thinking about the ABC stuff and Epstein Stop? It's just you know irrelevant at this point a very. I mean you could tell what they're trying to hide by how long they stretch out things. They doesn't teach me it'd make got these. They use the guys who are not really primarily in the thick of things things. It's a peach metairie and he just use the secretary like low level people in a dragnet meaning out then they code for another low level person they drag that that media circus out and then you put in you know. Joe Biden his weirdness in that and they drag that out. So it's it's almost like court it's a coordinated chaotic chaotic a system..

"And please press that red button to subscribe there. We're trying to get two thousand subscribers. It's too big of a story to explain why. But there is a reason for that. Okay. As we kick off the show. I think one of the things that is almost indigenous to America is Coca Cola, especially if you grow up in the south yet. That's a given. We had Coca-Cola up here q. North. Our guest is Larry Johnson, the author of the Coca Cola tro trail, welcome to the show. Larry. Hey, good morning. Glad to be here. Righty engineer. Could you turn his feet to us up a little bit? We can just barely hear. It. Coca Cola really is indigenous to the United States now almost two world. And I think what everybody thinks about Coca Cola. The first thing. Like, we did when I first spoke to you as we think of Atlanta, Georgia the Coca Cola museum, which by the way is on our YouTube site, but it started long before it landed. Didn't it? It. Sure did. And and basically we call the book the Coca Cola trail because there's places you can go. Visit tremendous Coca Cola history. Ziems and resting sites. And that's really what we. Explain to the reader were you can visit very. Coca cola. What is it? Now. Was Coca Cola. It's fun travel. Where does it really start? And is there. Yeah. It starts were bobble. Coca cola. Started a great place to visit Vicksburg. I wanna history and Vicksburg and one of the places to visit is the Coca Cola reading Harn museum. Not what that is. Was a gentleman by the name of Joe Biden, who I bottled Coca Cola was the first one to do it. He had little soda fountain. And. And he was actually. Fine and even distributing the original Coca Cola true in those days to get a cold soda fountain. And they gave you a shot of water as I call it. Coca Cola syrup in. There you go. Well, go at his local candy store thought, you know, this is so good. If I could get to the people in the country. And he thought about Bod Lagan. Thank you wanted to say Lewis and bought a second ad Bob lake, and that's all. Yeah. I think people need to realize to like you said that there was Coca Cola before it was ever in a bottle. You had to go to the drugstore or the soda fountain candy shop, whatever where they would spritz it up right in front of you along with a good float or Sundays to go along with it. But. The I think everyone's main history though, is Dr Pemberton or whatever in Atlanta where did it move to Atlanta or become the giant corporation that it is now? Well, obviously, it started in Atlanta Pemberton invented the formulas for the syrup. Solvent to Asia candler who was really then promoting distribution of the syrup and the gentleman in Vicksburg was one of the distributors. And became very aggressive. He had five brothers. And they later went on to become one of the largest Coca Cola. Bodley corporations in the United States establish plants throughout the south and southwest Vicksburg. We're back to the travel here. You can see the original song. It's been restored. It is now a historical society museum. And as long as you're there. He. Not that far to enroll Louisiana were the beaten museum. And it tells the whole history of that family. They're Coca-Cola stories and has a lot of memorabilia, and it's another great Coca Cola place to visit. And there's there's a lot of one of my favorite is in alisonville, Alabama. Or an old Coca Cola plant was given to the city for their. Museum with the proviso that some of the original Bobby equipment would stay in there as part of the museum. So great. I think I wandered away for your question. Coca cola. As we say a lot of license to bottle five years after. On the job eaten are started bottling. And that is an interesting story. As of candler who had the syrup. Was making it told the two gentlemen from Chattanooga that he would give them. After some negotiations never rights to baba Coca Cola throughout the United States. It will sell them that for a dollar, except they couldn't do it Mississippi because John is already. For a dollar, which he never collected. These guys went back to Chattanooga to figure out. How are we going to bottle? Coca Cola now to answer your question. Was that really created? I think Coca Cola L person that an international brand because these guys get back to Chattanooga. Like, how do this? The lightbulb goes on and they start selling pieces of the territory that they have. Other people they come Coca Cola. Bob lers. And it really.

"You're on The Danny Parkin show. Thanks for calling. Good evening. Mr parkinson. How you doing? I'm great, sir. How are you? I'm doing great first time caller. Thank you did in on this. When I first read about Zahn Williamson. I remember it was like his junior year and reading about all these high school prospects and him being one of them and and his profile members. Like he was six seven to thirty five to forty and this is like his junior year in high school. The next year the following year. I seen it his profile air, and it said to eighty twenty five and I was thinking to myself is that a misprint is this the same guy that was to thirty five and eighty five. You know? I I I didn't believe it. But you know, of course, we see them now and see the kind of player he is. Yeah. Exactly. He's to eighty five. Yeah. And and it might comparison to him would be more of a Larry Johnson. Charles barkley. I, you know, my opinion. He he won't be a good pro. He'll get his twenty twenty five points. Double figure rebound games. But I just don't see him getting these huge monster point games. Like lebron? Would you know do thirty five forty plus points a game? I don't see him getting that in the NBA for, you know, for reasons and one of them is is there's a lot of games lot more games in the NBA in college and that big body of his two hundred eighty five pounds. You gotta think it's gonna take a beating and that long of a season. Yeah. That's that's true. And I appreciate the call. But I mean Yannis is scoring twenty seven points a game playing only thirty three minutes a night. Embiid is playing thirty four minutes a night scoring twenty seven game. Anthony Davis is scoring twenty nine and night. Playing thirty seven minutes a game. Like, it's. It's not. It's physical. But it's not as physical as it was and again. He is a freak athletically. This isn't a guy that is going to be overwhelmed by the athleticism of the NBA. He might at times be overwhelmed by the skill set of the NBA, but the athleticism. I I'm telling you, I really don't he's nineteen. He's only going to get bigger and stronger, he's not fully developed yet. Which is insane. When you look at them. Means iron Williamson. I'm like are. We of the same. Are we both human beings? Are we the same species? I'm not exactly sure. But he is. I just I will be very surprised. Sure. It it'll be his first time in eighty two game season the travel. There will be adjustments every rookie every young player has them. He'll have bad games. But I honestly don't know if the physicality of the game is going to be a problem for this kid, he's stronger than them. He's bigger than them. He can jump higher than them.

"You're on the Dante Parkin show. Thanks for calling. Good evening. Mr parkinson. How you doing? I'm great, sir. How are you? I'm doing great first time caller. Thank you did it on this one. I I read about Zahn Williamson. I remember it was like his junior year and reading about all these high school prospects and him being one of them. And and his profile members. I he was six seven to thirty five to forty and this is like is senior year in high school. The next year the following year. I've seen it his profile air, and it said to eighty twenty five and I was thinking to myself is that a misprint is this the same guy that was thirty five and eighty five. You know? I I didn't believe it. But you know, of course, we see him now and see the kind of player he is. Yeah. Exactly. He's to eighty five. Yeah. And and it might comparison to him would be more of a Larry Johnson. Charles barkley. You know, my opinion. He he won't be a good pro. He'll get his twenty twenty five points. Double figure rebound games. But I just don't see him getting these huge monster point games. Like lebron? Would you know do thirty five forty plus points a game? I don't see him getting that in the NBA for, you know, for reasons and one of them is is there's a lot of games lot more games in the NBA in college. And that big body of is two hundred eighty five pounds. You gotta think it's gonna take a beating and that long of a season. That's that's true. And I appreciate the call. But I mean Janas scoring twenty seven points game playing only thirty three minutes night. Embiid is playing thirty four minutes tonight scoring twenty seven game. Anthony Davis is scoring twenty nine and night. Playing thirty seven minutes a game gets. It's not. It's physical. But it's not as physical as it was and again. He is a freak athletically. This isn't a guy that is going to be overwhelmed by the athleticism of the NBA. He might at times be overwhelmed by the skill set of the NBA, but the F lettuce schism. I I'm telling you, I really don't he's nineteen. He's only going to get bigger and stronger, he's not fully developed yet. Which is insane. When you look at them. I Williamson I'm like are. We of the same. Are we both human beings? Are we the same species? I'm not exactly sure. But he is. I just I will be very surprised. Sure. It'll be his first time playing an eighty two game season the travel. There will be adjustments every rookie every young player has them. He'll have bad games. But I honestly don't know if the physicality of the game is going to be a problem for this kid, he's stronger than them. He's bigger than them. He can jump higher than them. But he's just he's a different being with him. And I know that seems ridiculous. And I know that seems hyperbolic, but I'm telling you I. I've watched a lot of college basketball players. I love the sport so much. He he's very singular in terms of how much of a better athlete than he is that everybody else on the court. It's rare RJ Barrett is skilled RJ Barrett's great.

In team for both is what I got on. Yahoo right three and a half. I heard might be spread against the patriots. Or there might be a hook here there say straight of three on those games. So we're starting off first game. I wanna say it's round. What what's your what NFC Los Angeles Rams at the New Orleans Saints. How do you see this game plan out? He taken straight up and would they cover the spread? I'm I'm mostly it's push. Because I'm I'm going to say I'm gonna go with the saints by three just because that's that's that's the hard bet. So to to actually have happened. So I'll go with that one. Yeah. I see I think the saints will start faster than they did last week. I don't think they're gonna be playing for behind. I think it's going to be more of the saints are going to be are going. You're the second half of game you go see the saints running the ball. You're going to see the Rams Chuck in the ball. But I mean, it's it's it's the championship games. Nothing would shock me. Oh, here's good question. Jeff I looked up before when's the last time of visiting team one either of the championship games. Visiting team. We know it happened to no five I'm pretty sure it happened before that because the giants did the same. Last time visiting team trying to think of it happened last year known on the AFC is asked year wasn't at the NFC. The didn't host eagles were the one seed remember they'd limped in with a 'cause they lost with the dogs. You're right. The dogs. It wasn't the giants. Was it? It was he's here.

He's a former two time pro baller and did play for the chiefs from two thousand and three to two thousand and nine and that's Larry Johnson has kind enough to join us right now on the Zach yelp show on CBS sports radio. Larry Gelb appreciate a few minutes. And how are you yourself while I'm doing great? And I appreciate you coming on a first things first before we get to Kareem. Just how are you feeling these days, and what is day to day life like for one Larry Johnson is I know you've talked about in the past that you believe that you're living with C T from ABC news interview. I will. Full disability by the National Football League. I my days are pretty much pretty good. I I'm at home. They'll be able to be active with my daughter, but there has been relaxed. Little things like that. But we check them basically, a whole stopper fiscal myself to make sure everything's in the right pockets 'cause I forget that I moved things around periodically. Sometimes I forget things are in my pocket. But it's it's been pretty good. I keep locally. I stay. Supposed to be in live live my life that work you mentioned having a daughter just what have you learned about since being a father? And then also how scary as it was some of the struggles that could lie ahead in your future earnings. That is basically she'll be over not hopefully the drive. Going things I do mess up. Sometimes I don't I don't. I'm not supposed to have days. Always has the currently remind me this day. I this day. So that's pretty much a little bit of the struggle. But it's the way my mind is right now is like really works. I basically raised for just like any other. Pair would raise them all into her schoolwork and everything she does for the math part is either good at math anyway. It is a little bit of a struggle for me. Larry Johnson here with us on CBS sports radio on this at Gelb show. A lot of people have senior tweet by now in reacting to the Kareem hunt situation, and I'll read it for people that have not be able to read it so far. I thought I made my mistakes painfully clear I thought I was a perfect example of what not to do. I thought by speaking aloud about my pitfalls that players after me could see these situations before they'd happen. Really bleeping upset Korean. That's what you had to say on Twitter. Just when you saw the video the other day from the incident in February just what were you feeling and give us a little bit more on on your insight on how you reacted when you saw the video. I basically what I heard about the situation. I wasn't going to be quick to judge and see what was happening. I'll be obviously not situations do happen. But I knew the severity of it. When I saw the video. It made me so upset because these young players do not reach out to dis who didn't research way is. They don't understand that. He's wearing literally my number my jersey. So we are a link in a way that he doesn't work could be linked in this way. And that's why I was true to more during the season. I was really proud of everything you've worked in done. He was really owning that number where it could be just hitting. Remember, it was no more. Oh now your stomach gas. Well, my pool in west ruthless for him to do. So in this situation. Upset because I was watching myself. I started when he was talking to the police I had that face that space is messed up, but I don't know how to get out of it. That's the fee. I had when the situation happened late at night. If you're not drinking, you already know your career is going to be over. What is his say? That's what was going to happen. No matter how hard he tried to deny it. It was gonna come out. Do you have any relationship with Kareem? Just wondering like I said it was Allie knew when he got drafted. And he picked my number and great things about me. I feel great things about him. It was kinda like their relationship. We started followed each other with Twitter five six I was going to go into the city. We'd be able to talk and speaking, you know, get into it. But it just happened that way, and I'm sad that I'm sad mad. The fact that I'm a lotta organizations don't utilize older players appraising situation happen to come in and talk to players dodi's things will happen. How do you think the chiefs have handled this because they felt like they? Were lied to. I was surprised that they did waive him. But hey when a video like this services, and you had a player allegedly Lottie at stuff to keep him around. So what did you think about the way the chiefs handled us I handle it perfectly? I can't be met the way they handle the people have to understand. I'd been in our organization and got away with a lot of things that they just knickknacks stuff. And you get another player that plays ever in the back position the same number. It was almost like did they had at very very quickly on the strip of me. And I that's why I said I'd never would him to be linked with me, and that sort of fashion because he was a great kid. Having a great season. I just didn't want him to go down like this. Larry Johnson here with us on CBS sports radio. It's Gelb show. If you're able to talk to him today. What advice would you give him right now, knowing what you went through and your pass, I would say some type of emotional support. If you're gonna go see a therapist. If you're trying to get out these emails 'cause I'm telling you your whole life is going to change from now is going to change your love. Life is going to change your relationship with women is gonna change. How people you you now. And I it was hard for me to live through that stigma. I was depressed. Again. I had no emotional help. No, one was helping me everybody. Tell me what to do. I had no support. No. I really had to get myself going and go to therapy myself in took it four or five years. Of course, he therapy. You know, relaxing, a little bit far as drinking, and then I had to really find myself when he has to learn how to be a loaded this time and find himself with find a what's going to be the next step in his life because it's going to be along with what was rock bottom for you. Larry rock-bottom familiar with why wasn't able to have a normal schedule my child. So definitely off. I didn't know what I wanted to do active football football with all I played for. I didn't have any backup plan when you come out of football. You don't just say, okay. I'll just go get, you know, an NBA or I just go back in college. It doesn't work for guys like us. We're already thirty thirty. So we only lost the work experience. So I will what's the next that was gonna be what is what I try to do. So heartbroken and depressed.

"But then you realize that Zion. Williamson can do much more than Charles Barkley or Larry Johnson or Draymond green. Or LeBron James at age eighteen. Who was LeBron James was a lot smaller? I mean, what Zion Williams won't be the second. Heaviest player in the NBA now in Boban. Yeah. And six eight which we don't think of as, you know, huge in the modern NBA. The guy is huge. I mean, and that's just not because he was playing army on Sunday. It's because he's and he you know, I think his goal for the rest of the season should be to not get hurt. A so that his value is an NBA players and compromised in any way because that's one we're gonna really wanna watch him. Sorry, Duke alumni like yourself, Ben. But it's the sort of when people can't really make a good comparison for a guy. That's when I think it's sort of accept that. We are in strange territory, and that the potential for someone like Zion Williamson so great than I'm curious for your thoughts on the transition of Duke from this place where shoshefsky no said kind of historically high-handedly like, oh, we don't do the one and done thing because we're so great. And you know, those other schools can do it we care about leadership and. Ethics and we don't want these guys who just come around, you know, and stay for a year. He's gone completely in the opposite direction now, which we could talk about. But the thing that I find most interesting is like Duke as a brand becoming a school that somebody legs. I n Williamson or j Barrett or camera sh- would want to associate with which I think, you know, back when John wall was was coming out. You know, he said very publicly like I didn't want to go to Duke. I wanted to Kentucky like do you have any sense of why? And how that changed and do you think that this is like just what Duke is now? Well, I think there are two things that are important. The first is that I think you could probably make the argument that Zion. Williamson is the first player who is bigger than the Duke brand, right is more followers on social media for whatever, you know, whatever that counts for. But he seems so far to have transcended the college team that he's playing for. It's a great doesn't tend to happen with college players. In fact, I can't really remember the last time maybe trae young last year. I mean, Trey young seemed to be at the height of trae young mania in January and February was bigger than Oklahoma. But Oklahoma is not Duke and basketball, and so like jimmer for data and Steph curry, but those are guys at schools that don't really have a brand. That's right. And this is one of the top two brands in college basketball period that also happens to have the number two and number three pick playing alongside of this guy. Right. I mean, I think that it is it has been a conscious strategy now for the last decade or so even for three or four years before they started to get the one in done guys were really beginning to recruit those guys. Right. And it was it was before John wall. It went back to guys like Greg Monroe and Brandon, right? And even Patrick Patterson who ended up Kentucky Duke was in the game for all of these guys. And they couldn't get it. And they couldn't flip that reputation that they had among high. School players that they were not a place where you would want to go for your one or two years in college basketball now and something happened where they kind of embraced. They not only embraced all these trends in college basketball, but they tried to put out this image of this notion of the brotherhood, and that they you know, were cool, and they had all these glossy highlight online, and they really started to play that game. And and then they got one or two one and done guys, and it sort of had a cascading effect..
