"Couple clippers contracts and that's it for Ben Simmons. Is that are they looking at like 20, 25 cents a dollar? I just don't think Dara would do that. I think you'd rather just bury him and do a steering contest because the thing is, I've been waiting for this to happen with somebody where the player who thinks he has all the leverage who's already getting paid who just thinks he can decide what to do. Actually picks the wrong fight. And in this case, it's the wrong fact. Is Doc Rivers certainly doesn't care. He's been in the NBA for four decades. He's not gonna back down to this guy. Sixers owners don't care. Darrell had all of China coming after him. He's fine. And then the Philly fans, there are the same way. So it's like this is the one situation where I think the player picked the wrong battle. Even the Kyrie thing, there's people will cave in the Kyrie thing. It'll happen. I don't think there's going to be caving in this Philly thing. Well, and the one thing, too, that we can't stress enough is. You know how tough Philly fans are, even when you're trying and you're struggling a little bit, this kid can not I mean they'll destroy him. And he was already and I learned this from the piece I did on Ben a couple years ago, already a little sensitive to what Philly fan said about him and thought about him in this whole idea of they like Joelle better and all this other stuff. I mean, they'll destroy him now, because anyone that was maybe on the fence, which I can't imagine there are many Philly fans left that that's the case. After this today, how can you possibly even do anything that suggests any inkling of empathy or humanity regarding him? Because he's basically thumbing his nose at you, your team, your coach, your TM, your franchise player, everybody. And showed up to collect some paychecks, which was pretty transparent. And that's not going to play well either. Well, now, so now you suspend us. So here's my question. I go back to this again. What if? And I don't have no inside knowledge. This is just me projecting, which is what we like to do. What if Ben Simmons is cam comes out and says, Ben Simmons has some mental health issues. He needs to take some time away. This is no different as we've said over and over and over in this league than a torn ACL. A broken mind is just as important as a broken leg. He needs to take a leave of absence. And the sixers would have to pay him, wouldn't they? Yeah, if that happens, which I think is a real possibility, I would hope it's genuine because I think that would demean the people who actually battle. I couldn't agree more. But I would say, based on everything we've seen that's gone on with mint Ben Simmons, I think there's some stuff going on with him. Legitimately, there's stuff going on with him. And there was some stuff in that even in that Ramona piece about this situation with his family, which we knew and we've talked about a load on the pod. But yeah, it seems like there's a lot of burdens with this dude. I think he has some real family issues. And I think it's like the stuff we talked about in the past, the difference between fearful and fearless and janus how fearless that guy is. That guy is unafraid of everybody and everything and every situation. And if something bad happens, he's on to the next play and Ben Simmons is just the opposite. And it seems like something changed in him between senior and high school and LSU where he became fearful instead of fearless. Right. But yet, we have again examples throughout history. You know, Magic Johnson came out as a rookie in 1980 and he was fearless. He played all 5 positions you want him a championship. And then, you know, in Boston garden, four years later, three years later, he dribbles out the clock and misses free throws and everyone's calling him tragic magic. And then within a year he's wins a championship again. So it's at least he had the baseline of he had had some real success. I guess the issue that fans I talked to are like, what are Ben Simmons wins? What are the things we can point to where it's like, well, he came through that time. It doesn't exist. So when you combine that with all the stuff that's happening now, and we've seen, I mean, you really, you don't have to go back to the cocaine era where you see guys who just tail off. Right? But it was always drugs, or it was always some sort of terrible knee injury. Like, you know, what happened to grand hill or what happened to it? Right. Yeah, which is a shame. But you go back to the 80s and you go look at some of the basketball. Go look at like John drew, go look at John Lucas. Go look at microwave Richardson. These guys, Michael ray Richardson so on, you know, everybody always says he was going to be the missing piece for X, Y and Z, you know, all those guys. Hey, go all the way back to Spencer, Hayward. Who tells who tells his story very plainly that he should have won three championships with the Lakers? But he's too busy being coked up. And God bless him. He's clean now and he's a great he's a great cautionary tale and is so eloquent it telling it. But but I don't think that's what's going on here. I'm not saying that that's what's going on. I know you're not over the course MBA history where Elgin bail is another one, right? Everybody says LJ heard his knee at some point in the mid 60s. Right. It was just never the same. And that's it. So we've seen it with injuries. We've seen it with drugs. We've seen guys get a little funky like latrell sprewell. I think people forget he was first team all in BA and gold state midnight. I would say he was probably the third best two garden the league when he strangled PJ. Looked at his career was over, but he came back. I don't I'm really starting to wonder as Ben Simmons come back in a way that this doesn't that it doesn't drag this around. Now you could say sprewell did. It's pretty well choked his coach was a pariah and was a hero for the Knicks within a year and a half. How about Ron artest, destroyed the league with malice in the palace? Get some counseling. Thanks his psychiatrist on the podium as he beats the Celtics in Boston for an NBA championship. Happens. So I guess the difference with this is we've pointed to all these different things. It's like injury. Some sort of terrible incident drugs. I don't remember just this guy doesn't really like it here situation. Snowballing like this has. But I guess I would push back that I think there's more to it. That's why I'm arguing this mental health, just look between the lines. Some of the things you're talking about, I just think it's a bigger issue. And if it is, it's one that no one will be sympathetic towards, but I will, if.
"latrell" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"And after it goes up as an actual podcast, we apologize. You never know. As the sixers turn. All right, so here's the recap of what we know right now. Ben Simmons, just decides, I guess he's just mailing in practices and disengaged to the point that Grover's finally cost him out. Ends up getting kicked out of practice, which I remember in 9th grade, I got kicked out of two basketball practices, which was tough because I was the captain. Why did you get what did you do? I was a head case. I was. I look back and I wish I could take young 14 year old Bill Simmons on my knee and just be like, hey, dude, set an example, be a pro. I know you've been. I want more details about more details. It was talking back to the coach. It was my guy at Wally Ramsey. I just, you know, the hey guys gathering and I had to take the one extra shot just to be a dick and stuff like that. That's just like you just want to backhand that kid. The Ben Simmons thing. It just, it's kind of the same thing, right? He's being intentionally disingenuous. Clearly wants to get traded. It has no leverage. And I think you've been covering the week longer than I have. This is maybe the weirdest ongoing soap opera we've had, right? Can you think of a weirder one? Robert hordy Danny age, maybe I don't know. Well, that was bad, but you know, it's funny. I don't remember someone being, well, we probably didn't know about it. That's probably the thing. I'm sure there was somebody else that was insubordinate like this and we just didn't know about it. I mean, how about latrell sprewell and PJ? Let's not ever forget that one. Okay, that's kind of important. He choked his coach when his coach said, put a little more mustard on that pass. That to me is, I mean, that was an assault. Remember the net? I mean, that was bad. So with that one, though, that had an immediate end, right? Latrell has suspended. And then it just became a negotiation with the players union for whether he's getting paid or not. Right. This has no end. I guess what stands out for this story is like, I don't know how it gets resolved because ultimately, I think the sixers are going to decide, you have to go away and then it's going to become a big thing about do they have to pay them or not because clearly he can't be on the team, but they also can't trade them because he's submarine his leverage. So how does this play out? What do you think? Well, I think GMs have amnesia always. So remember Jimmy Butler wasn't that long ago, Jimmy Butler blew up Minnesota and he was this malcontent and disrupting practice. Remember, he disrupted practice to the point where they had to get rid of him right away too, and everyone's like, oh, man, that guy's got mental health issues. He's not reliable. He's the worst. And it goes to Miami, and he's the most model citizen ever known to the MBA. So it's not impossible. Because I would certainly contend that Jimmy Butler's a hell of a lot more volatile than Ben Simmons. I'm sure you would agree. So I always say these things always look untenable and this is the end and it's so often so many times. It doesn't end up that way. Now I don't agree with what Ben, how can anyone agree with what Ben Simmons did? Well, I'll tell you what I thought when I heard this morning or just a few not that long ago. I'm just really wondering, does Ben Simmons really want to play basketball? Is Ben Simmons just in a place where maybe he just should step away from the game for a while. That's really what I'm wondering, because this isn't something a player who loves the game does. It's just not. Like again, Jimmy Butler went ape crazy on the Minnesota Timberwolves, but it was over the fact that you didn't think some of the guys were tough enough for playing hard enough, right? This is like you're doing you're like refusing your coach says we're doing a defensive drill and you're telling him no. And then he says to you again, you know, I want you to do this drill. And you say no again, like, who are you? Who are you? Well, he lost his teammates. It seems like, oh, God, yeah. That's another piece. And that happened a while ago. That happened. I mean, now they're not even pretending to go through this United States. That's right. I think what I had heard through Ramona's piece a couple days ago, which had some good inside stuff, including that some sixers fans. I'm sorry, some sixers and people around the team felt like before game 7, he was looking for an out. And that maybe maybe I was around that masseuse who tested positive, maybe and they were kind of like, oh, right. Do you really want to play in this game? The fact that that was in the piece, I thought was the most damning thing, either way that I've read. Because if I'm Ben Simmons and people wrapping him and I read that, I'm like, oh, they hate this guy. Well, I think that that made it now he kind of can't go back. I don't know how you come back from that. The Jimmy Butler thing of him being like these guys don't know how to win yet. They don't know how to compete. I feel like you can come back from that because ultimately he's just trying to bring these guys to the level that he cares based being a dick. Well, he was trying to get himself out of there. I mean, it was the same thing. But it was just a different way to go about it. So that piece was, you know, gramont is a great reporter. I thought that same thing had some great insight, but it brings me back to this point. Is Ben Simmons in a place where he really wants to play. And does he need just a break to figure that out? And if you're a team that trades for him, is that the first thing you do, you just put him on a shelf for a little bit and let him get his head right and his, you know, his priorities right. And if so, then what's the price? You know, like all these deals that we see, right? We see, buddy healed, Marvin Bagley, a future first. I mean, that's a lot of stuff for a guy that's pretty precarious right now, isn't it? Yeah. I mean, I always thought their best case scenario was buddy hailed in Halliburton. That ship has sailed. The Minnesota was trying to get him for Beasley and a couple of contracts and some picks. Beasley's had a terrible training camp. So I don't even know if you'd want to do that anyway. But that feels like Minnesota has sailed. And then Indiana just gave brogden an extension so he can't even be in any trade. Now, I just don't feel like they have suitors. And then you all of a sudden you start looking at like, could this be Marcus Morris and, you know, a.
"latrell" Discussed on The Really Awful Movies Podcast
"I thought it was hysterically. Funny and said it's kind of a twitchy ridiculous character and he's in this movie as a pseudo journalist who for some reason feeds seagal. I know maybe fed him like submarine sandwich or something but no he feeds him a bunch of intel so that he can get closer to the drug dealer latrell and all the stuff. There's a fight scene. That looks like possibly might have taken place in a strip club that i think is now has darkened stores. It's been waylaid the but a pandemic but it's called for your eyes only as near near jeff's place and stick go there. I think a couple of occasions when someone had had a bachelor party or something. I mean it was sort of made up to be a classy strip joint the to the extent that that can even be possible. And it looks like this was lens there hysterical scenes where this i mean increasingly not fleet a fleet of foot. Seagal going toe to toe with these muscled behemoth bouncers and of course getting the better them and getting think a bottle of crystal or something that gets smashed over is his dome but extremely funny. Great fight scenes in a lot of cases. And there's key briefcases full of money. There's another great scene where this drug dealer saunters into a luxury car dealership which is actually not that far from my house where implied casting this but he saunters in and gets dismissed offhand by the black sales person and and really accommodated by the white sales guy who just flips them keys and says no. I'm good the block. Sales guy says you're probably didn't cut of his jib and says he was thinking he probably couldn't afford fine. Italian craftsmanship vehicles like lamborghini which eventually does roll out in such a insane scene where this drug dealer pays in cash with a bag of money and just drives up the front door this place without even without even the sales team counting to make sure the funds are all there. Just one of the great great scenes. I mean if you got just helicopters if people being impaled on a clothes rack. You got fisticuffs galore. You got one liners zingers. You've got the surly guy who runs the evidence storage department at the at the cop show up and this is another cliche of police movies it goes back to serpico and again has its resonates still to this day. Where the surly guy who's like. Oh no like taking umbrage with the fact he has to go into the evidence room and secure something for the hero like. Oh because he's so busy reading the newspaper and he's always reading the newspaper and watching sports. I don't know what it is with these evidence department guys and why they're not on the ball and acting like proper librarians and sourcing stuff. Our heroes it'd make things much more swimmingly. It certainly does a law and order. Svu another thing. I learned even mendez. Mendez is in this thing again. You got david vadym as one of the corrupt detectives. And he's vadym. I guess he's a ukrainian actor and he's just another one of these guys. You just sort of know when you see him..

"Would american outdoor news. Today we would have very special guys. Then you'll murphy. Before michael murphy survive operation very readily. Speak up back here. Yes my son was navy lieutenant. Michael murphy will receive the medal of honor from president bush in two thousand and seven for actions in afghanistan in two thousand and five which were recreated in the movie survivor. Marcus latrell was the only survivor. Michael's team and When now building a navy seal museum Which is going to tell the history legacy and sacrificing of on abc's and west sable on county falkland It carries michael's name so it's called them. Lieutenant michael p murphy navy seal museum and seek it at training facility because it's perfect. Bill invest not about michael. It is actually about navy seals from warwick to maneuver known is underway demolition teams through the war on terror changed and evolved over over time. Oh for sure. And of course today Big daddy's Celebrity golf outing It's overcast with a little bit of rain. But i tell big daddy. This is A well so they can play on anywhere anytime exactly now getting off the topic which what are for the people who served and sacrificed. Everything has gone on for the past ten years. How does that affect you partial. How president binding down after that question a lot. I don't believe that michael's were any of the other. Sacrifices were in vain cape. They kept this country twenty years. Eventually we knew we had to get at afghanistan. I if i have any major complaint. Is that. I consider a by to have fumbled the ball. There are ways to get out. There are ways to get out you. Don't pull the military out and then say oh. Let's get the civilian noli. Proper ways only american civilians out than equipment out. Then you get us troops out. So if i have a criticism would be that He basically fumbled this whole operation. I absolutely believe that. His military leaders Made these decision probably should resign because absolute wound up. Personally it is. I think a lot of the american public feels the same way. Oh joy way as why. The president's poll numbers going down Just you know just shake your head and wonder why they make decisions that they made Rather than having woodley rural being a military guy myself in vietnam it's just withdrawals were always most complicated and require a lot of planning This seem so acid. That was okay and to send an auditory day. We're going to leave by. This date seems to me. You know like i wanna be. I wanna be out by august thirty first of that. I could say on nine eleven. Hey we're no longer in afghanistan. So i think those are political decisions as opposed to military decisions agreed. Every that's that's basically. That's that's the problem. I see there and that's why we're in shape. We're in right now. Getting back on topic What's your greatest memory. Oh god there are so many but michael you know i try to explain to people that michael was one leader back. When he was young. I saw and all his actions of and i kind of like this. I think most of michael sprints knew that michael would do the right thing at the right time for the right reasons. And so as i want him growing up and i'm talking about when he seven eight nine ten. It would be his friends coming. My i going to do today. And my said oh. We'll do this. And i think his friends recognized the same Same attributes michael off. So when i say was born leader he was a born leader. I just he was the leader of his crew. Whether it was as a lifeguard at lake ronkonkoma or even as a silky. No michael was all about eve. Not about michael which is why when we heard that there was a survivor. Minimum michael's team went missing. poll week. You heard there was a survivor His mother maureen than i knew of what we looked at each other and said we knew wasn't going to be michael because michael would have sacrificed himself whereas men before he would allow himself to be the sole survivor. So but we're happy that Mocks appel survived. Because without marcus we would have never known michael story And so marcus relate exactly what these amended during battle including michael When you received the medal of honor reward which was four. What marcus said michael. Step down into an avalanche bullets in order to make coal for assistance I don't know many people that would be willing to do that. Knowing that the propaganda die so which say probably ninety nine percent. Chalk would not chuck. When i think of michael. I always think of this pyramid that just get smaller and smaller because you go from becoming a leader to becoming a navy seal becoming a navy seal officer becoming operational because there aren't that many operational teams to go up to being in battle. And then the medal of honor realize they're only thirty five hundred metres. They have been awarded since the civil war. While michael was the first draft ghanistan i sale to receive the medal of honor since nineteen seventy three the vietnam war so michael with a lot of firsts in a lot of ways honest to god american year yep yep absolutely and you i think mockus said it. Best in his book won't survive o'grady said if they could build a mind him into michael and we'd have to be hired in the empire state because he just was a leader. People follow and courageous. He just courage matched by anybody. Just incredibly young man i really incredibly unmanned i was honored to have him at my son. His actions reflected exactly what i would have expected michael to do when faced with what he had to face and so He was as i said a team play fit. Perfect in seal team. Because it's all about team it's about individuals And so he was a team player. Which is why. I believe that we don't have anything like a bronze to michael. Because michael would freaked out but really. There's never about him if you ever see any pictures. He's always standing in the background. It was always about his team. His teammates So when we dealt with issues that came up for example. The us has michael murphy. There's a navy ship a d. j. one twelve always destroy but when the family got together in the navy they were going to name it. The story of the michael who was important to us that michael's team was involved. So we had wall of nineteen men have been named scrapping to kill fake that was put in shifts. If you go through the ship you will see biography of each and every one of the Nineteen thousand army Who was lost in red wings and the too rigid inflatable boats on the on the ship on name beats.

"As we promised earlier. With the withdrawal in the middle of the night. Of of some of America's involvement in Afghanistan and the world seemingly shocked. We've brought in an expert. As it turns out, the timing couldn't be better. He is the author of Marathon War leadership in combat in Afghanistan. That book's been out for a month. Grab it, It's available. His name is Major general Jeffrey Schloesser. He's a retired Army major general. He commanded the 101st airborne division for 33 months, including 15 months in combat in Afghanistan. 34 years in the army served in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, Albania, Kuwait, Haiti, Jordan, Korea and twice in Germany. You could say he's a badass. We're going to talk about his book, but first, let's talk about what's happening in Afghanistan. Uh, I had a call this morning on a show from a veteran who made the point. That by us leaving in the middle of the night and not giving fair warning that we exposed a lot of the types of people who saved Marcus Latrell's life. We exposed a lot of the people who helped us. Succeed there who helped us operate there your thoughts. Yeah, well, Michael first thanks for having me on the show, too. I mean, I think it's if there was some symbology to us live in Afghanistan by leaving Bagram in the middle of the night. I guess it's pretty apparent. It was, uh, you know, just one more nail in this coffin here as we go forward. It's really a shame that that's the way we decided to leave. Although I've understood I've heard from spokespersons will the administration that they believe it was well coordinated? I'm not sure that the Afghans on the ground felt that way and I totally agree that By not having a completely coordinated in a clean pass over those translators, interpreters. Those people the Afghans have been supporting us for tens of years. We left them a little bit more on alert, even more than we have been before. General. Let me ask you, Um my study of Afghanistan tells me That the Brits Couldn't let's say you win. Uh, the Russians couldn't win that. It's an untenable position of thousands of tribes who hate each other and only unify when we come in. Brutal terrain. Very little to gain other than the geopolitical location of it. What would have been a win there? You know, the Powell doctrine was that you had to have an entrance and an exit strategy. Um and you had to be able to define a win. And he also believed as you know that if you if you break it, you buy it. Uh, was there an opportunity for a win? Or was this really just going to be a long term occupation or presence? You know, Michael, I mean, we had an initial win. So let's go all the way back 20 years, not 11 3000 of our citizens and the citizens of the world, you know, law killed By al Qaida who planned plotted and trained in Afghanistan in the safe haven provided by the Taliban. So we went out to bring justice to Al Qaeda. And then along the way we found out we had offered the Taliban you give us give us Al Qaeda and you know you can have your country There are, uh or what? You have to go there of Afghanistan. They didn't buy into that. And they said no. And so we ended up having to fight both the Taliban as well as Al Qaeda. It took a long time to get Osama bin Laden. But that was done again 10 years ago. What we did, though, is is By doing that, I think what we did and trying to continue to put pressure on Al Qaeda. You know, we have not been attacked in our country in 20 years, Nor have we been attacked in the major way in any NATO ally country that spot with us there in Afghanistan. That's got to be some level of success as we go about it. I didn't answer your question. And I'd like to go ahead and send that shit. Would you mind? Yes. Please, No, no, Go ahead, please. Okay. The second part of it is, though, is as we looked around in that country after pushing out the Taliban and Al Qaeda, which was really done within the first year to two years. There was nothing there that would resemble a government. There was nothing there that resembled an economy. There was nothing there that would help the people medically or with education. And we rolled up our sleeves. Just like all Americans tend to want to do as well as a lot of our good allies from Europe as well as throughout the world, and we decided to do nation building. And Michael. It mean I advice President Bush the son that what we were doing made sense. I mean, we were doing everything but we were teaching Afghans out of farm again because I forgot after you know, at the time 20 years of war Now it's 40. Um But we probably admit made a misstep there. We probably went beyond the Powell doctrine. We probably went And went beyond our own boots, right? I mean, it's one of those things where you can't build a democracy in the country that has no history of government. You know you're very challenging to build the economy. When corruption is life within the country. I mean, it's it's to an extent that most Americans would have no concept of what we mean by corruption. They can't do anything there without bribery. Insightful enough money. So that was that We took a step too far and then we kept stepping forward and further and further and that was probably where we made a mistake. But the other side of that is is if we hadn't done that. Perhaps it would be a safe haven already In Afghanistan and perhaps Al Qaeda would be plotting already not just waiting for us to leave, but they would be plotting already. So it is. This is a critical way. This is a really tough problem. Unfortunately, it's not going away. Alright, Marathon more we can forget about Afghanistan. Afghanistan will not forget about us. What does that mean? And what do we do about it? Yeah, so the meaning that what I meant there and writing that is is that we can walk out of Afghanistan. There's going to be continuing to be a conflict there War. Now it's going to be the Taliban versus the Afghan government versus the militias that are going to also fight against the Taliban. What it means is is that in that The I mean in the aftermath of that ongoing conflict. There'll be many places for Al Qaeda to reestablish itself to start plotting again against the United States because that is their goal. And against other European countries. As well as places like Saudi Arabia. Um And I believe that we will again be threatened my al Qaeda, perhaps Islamic state. Because of the safe haven that's created as we get out of Afghanistan and leave it the harder so the sense Afghanistan won't forget about us. They'll come after us. It won't be the Afghan government. It will be the Taliban's safe haven. Terrorists that are allowed to be there. Coming up. I will ask General Schloss or the question that is often a question about a statement is often made. If we don't fight the bad guys there, then we'll fight them here. Does he believe that to be true coming up, Michael Barry show if he doesn't say it, Yeah, who will News Radio one. Oh, five. Your favorite things feel made for you. Your education should too..

She did jeb but in about sixty years when yeah Well i think to keeping in the lane of sports and we can kind of segue into the next. I don't know if this next on the list. Nick but that's what's at the forefront of my mind is that we also want to talk about the nba and what happened. has been happening during the playoffs with Russell westbrook trae young and Oh kyrie irving to yes. So at One of the brooklyn nets games during the playoffs. Kyrie irving had a water bottle thrown at him by a celtics fan russell. Westbrook had a popcorn dumped on his head during A wizards in seventy sixers game. And then we had trae young was actually spit on out of atlanta hawks playoff game so then remember the parents of what's his name were bullied in the stands. You know parents so yeah. Yeah so there's been a lot of you know outcries for the nba to do something into actually protect the players. And you know. Lebron james has come out and made serious statements about what's happening and other. Nba playoffs players. Excuse me are saying like where you guys are gonna do to protect us because people have been locked up in their houses for a long time. Yes but it's interesting to see that the fans that are really acting crazy are white. They are there rich white folks that kind of feel entitled and i've read some of the narratives but they're saying that you know these rich white folks are coming to the games. They're getting drunk and just feeling entitled inner basically you know costing these players. So what are you guys going to do to protect them. Can i say something.

"And again fortune enough to do that. We're gonna talk in a minute about your focus on healthcare and what you've you've done since then but when you talk about the sights the sounds of smell being involved camp. Hope and veterans with ptsd. That's one of the things that they talk a lot about the sensory perception. It's burned into the brain that you never ever forget. And you used the word smell and folks don't usually but i have heard that before and i don't know what i don't know but it gives me an impression that there really is a lot more going on there than a movie can portray. That's absolutely right. Well said so. Our brain has the ability to what the calling code. And if you encode with multiple senses it it drives that nail home for than it would if you just saw something on tv or you just hear a sound more centuries the more senses that you put into something an explosion. A death a gunfight that is why our veterans have veterans. First responders as. Well it's all relative to any space but anybody. That has a memory that they can't get rid of. It is ingrained and encode and they had the ability to retrieve that you. You'll understand this when you walk into a particular market or you walk into a grocery store or you go to your grandma's house or someone else's house and that smell hit like this is like my grandmother's house that memories immediately drawn back and that's why that happens so with veterans especially since we fought a war two wars arguably for twenty years. Those they're just live and breathe and we were doing in. The scientific community for veterans and first responders is is creating coping mechanisms for them so they can handle their day to day. Lives have an increased quality of life. And that's important morgan. Latrell is announcing right here. Live on the air that he is running to succeed.

"Oh, four season. What was that? Like? It was my first year covering the MBA. And so you know anybody in the media Adela can Kevin and Kevin Garnett before knows he's not easy to deal with. I mean, he makes you wait to talk after games. But I tweeted this earlier today when it comes to Breaking down plays and being from a professional standpoint, no any game two smartest people I've ever covered in 10 years covering MBA, Kevin Barnett and Latrell Sprewell's They just happen to be teammates that same year. The same year, the Garnet won the VP trophy and lead the T Wolves to the Western Conference finals against Kobe and the Lakers and neck. Laker team at Hall of Famers. They had shack, Kobe, Gary Payton and Karl Malone all on that team, and Myron and I were talking about this during the break Had Sam Cassell not got injured. The Minnesota Timberwolves would have beaten daily Lakers and got to the NBA finals that year, but unfortunately, um, could sell got injured. You think about Garnett is like you said he knew the game. But once he felt comfortable with you You were in with him from a media standpoint. In the one thing he learned that my mom had cancer, and I had stopped covering the Timberwolves come movie, and you hear the Indianapolis cover the Pacers and even in all those years after that, Every time I would see him. You don't say. Hey, Mike. How's your mom doing? And people don't know. People don't know that side of Kevin Garnett. They they think you know, he's a trash talking F bomb dropping guy, which he is on the basketball court. But there's that other side of Kevin Garnett. That people he's got that soft side. I mean, I'd go in the locker room, just visiting locker room. Just say hello to me like, Hey, how's your mom doing this stuff? So it was great. That's what we if on, that's what you hear about Kevin gone yet beyond the basketball player, But I think you hear more about that side of Kevin Garnett on the court, the explosive element the entertaining element, But here's a comparison. I thought of with Kevin Barnett, and this isn't like a knock against him at all. It's almost like Barkley mean he's sort of this era's Barkley. Incredible player. So much hardened personality and fire no championship. So although he's in this incredible class, you could make the case that K G is maybe third or even fourth. Tameka Catchings has a better basketball resume, so it'll be interesting to see kind of how he's remembered. What a group like this Joe One of the things I love about the three headliners in this class between Garnett, Duncan and Kobe is the distinction in personality. I mean, just the other distinction. It's almost as if everything you could possibly want is represented between those three in guard net trash talking brash but laying it all on the line, bleeding on the court, doing everything he could to try to will his team to a victory. Aggressive hostile, You know, you'll see that anymore. With Duncan, It's the exact opposite. Never said a word. Never arguing the big fundamental just going about his business day in day out night in night out, not necessarily leading with a lot of words, leading by example. And then Kobe Bryant, a mixture of a bit of the two But that Mamba mentality that absolute killer instinct where he knew when it got to the ultimate stage. He was going to get you He was gonna find that way to get you and if he didn't, he was probably going to use that moment to motivate him through his entire off season. There was a story and I can't remember who wrote it. But it was about Kobe's legacy when the USA basketball team was over in London. It was a trainer who got a call from Kobe it like three. A.m. and Kobe asked if he could come over to the gym to stretch them out because Kobe wanted to work out. So the guy says, Of course he comes over. He stretches amount. He goes through like a 23 hour routine with Kobe. Kobe. Thanks. Um, they're both for in sweat. Guy goes home goes to bed. It's like seven a.m.. They have a practice three hours later. Don't quote me, But this is a rough time frame. Roughly three hours later, Guy wakes up comes back over seas. Kobe and Kobe's over there. Working on free throws before scrimmage is about to start. And he goes. Hey, It was a great workout this morning, so, Yeah, thanks. And he's just like, you know what time did you end up leaving? Because What do you mean? It was what time did you end up going back? He was no, I'm still here. He had been here the whole time. He did the 34 hours stretching workout routine. Then he did three hours of his own work. Then he was getting ready for a scrimmage. And this was from the Olympics. This wasn't even for the N B. A. This was for the Olympics, which was probably Mike a foregone conclusion anyway, with the way Team USA has played in the recent years I mean, the way you something, the best show it was a combination of Kobe. Kobe stepped on the court and he's gonna let you know He's the best player out there. He's gonna do it with his play and just kind of his demeanor and stuff. And being, you know when I was covering the terminals in Western Conference seeing dark. That's when Barnett and Tim Duncan were the top two power forwards in the MBA and kg would always try. He tried to be, you know, Katniss on the basketball on basketball court in the street, he go Yap Yap Yap Yap, Yap Yap and Tim Duncan. I mean, he had Katie's hot breath in his face. And 10. Dunkin would just play. He didn't care. There was no trash talking back. Basically, Duncan was like I'm a I'm a kill you softly. I'm a go softly and you just go ahead and let my actions speak for so the demeanor is in the way they carried himself on the basketball court come completely polar opposite. I mean, I'm surprised ducking into say, Hey, you know what? Let's just fight about it, but he's like, No, I'm just gonna go ahead and give it up that bank shot from 10 ft. Out. I'm a backing down the scoring and they went back and forth, So it was That was my era. I mean, I'm in the same time in the same age bracket is Duncan Kobe in K G, So I was loving it back then Seeing those boys go to Toto Toto on everything. So I'm excited for tonight to see all these guys. Of course I'm sure. You know, we all wish Kobe was there to be able to give his speech on stuff. But just having those three going together and Tameka captains who I know personally here in Indianapolis, this might be one of my favorite. All of fame since the year I covered regular out there in Massachusetts in 2012. It is fascinating to me, fellas that we speak of Tim Duncan as the third guy in his class 15 time. All Star two MVPs five championships. People will say things like, Well, he was born, but it's excellent. Boring is consistency. Boring. I tell you this, and this is just me..

This team hasn't had the success of those teams. I don't want to say that. I wanna i wanna to think of going in that direction. But it's yet those are teams. That just outworked you. And that's what the knicks are doing. They are grinding you down and winning games in the fourth quarter. Absolutely and their team. Look they. I don't think they're quite on the level of course like milwaukee going but but they are team you do not want to face in a second round series or authority round series breath.
