Because they aren't you know, it's not like word is LeBron go. Therefore, that team goes to the finals.

Yeah, it's just now you're getting the kind of built Russell territory granted rough lick of winning it, too, but Um, you know that. That's why I would just love to see a team such as Denver, a team that I look at and see, but they have a bunch of nice players and good players, but it's not just Superstar driven and believing that's not to take away from LeBron. I mean, I saw him first play when he was 14.

player nine time all star thirteen hundred and thirty two wins as a coach he had a rating wondering as a coach and at one point upon his retirement was the all time leader in wins in NBA history I don't I don't know what the be a stretch to say what was he was on like the the the fifty greatest players of all time list so either he would be really good to player great coach so that that's pretty good that's getting up near the top on both those categories I tweeted Lou Piniella Lupin L. was a rookie of the year he was an all star the playing numbers underrated the the plate numbers a little bit late compared to manager manager there three times he won a ring one eighteen hundred games that he had a hundred sixteen win season with the mariners had a ninety seven when the season with the cubs get a ninety win season with the Yankees many guys won ninety four games with three different teams that leads us to dusty because dusty's had success along those lines I'll give you I'll give you another one I'll give you an old school one well I'll give you a time game a lot for me before he walks in the building of Phil Jackson now fills a player lesser is a player certainly because it's hard to tie a tardy to equate to winning eleven championships as a coach but coach of the year eleven NBA ratings as a coach wondering is a player in nineteen seventy three next I would I would say the Phil was a what would we say good player what I what I wouldn't go so far as to say very good player good feels a little bit beat before my appreciation so I'd say a good player great coach I think we get somebody who moves their scale up to more even let's let's go here well let me get some support here because I don't like stealing his candidate but I think you can back me up on this at least in great minds think alike in Oxford John Lenny Wilkens makes sense doesn't it yeah I mean I'll tell you what I remember when I was a little kid he was a baller and then you know with that seventy error the supersonic you might think that won the NBA title yes like seventy six or something yeah yeah like what was the Jack segment what that would mean DJ Dennis Johnson on that team right correct and policy there was another guy Paul Silas you know what lance I got another basketball god for it think it could be the greatest combo player coach in the history of college basketball John wooden don the greatest player of his time at Purdue I believe yes yeah all American absolute yeah he said a lot of records in the big ten and and then you know of course the rest is history thank you thank you I like that little these different names popping up here how about well I hesitate to use I'll give you one only one when I did my initial list I didn't have any money I thought we might have to leave doc rivers off his doc rivers as a player heck of a player in all star made the playoffs is the coach still still coaching NBA title coach of the year but doc was a I I'd say really good player I wouldn't call doc rivers a great player though what we called a great coach though all that slice the I'm doing with my hands I'm doing kind of a slide scale here with my hands trying to to balance out the guy who moves up to the top close it up in in both of those how about here in cellphone Chad you're on seven hundred WLW and I don't know if you've noticed but if you look at it that he was not even NBA champion as a player the military military car parking Kentucky with a unanimous player of the year of course NBA you got lots of rain check if you're not o'toole year had died yeah he's a five time champion a three time because here is one executive here I mean like I said if you look at his stats client code number was retired by Kentucky was that he could fire the year is the first team all American third team all American and also wondering if the players of the game that's not bad that's not bad check Chad thank you Chad you said something now I have to consider a because he's including Kentucky because my initial thought on Pat Riley was as a player he was he was okay he was a role player Pat for his career average seven points in the NBA but if we and I I haven't set up the parameters so you get to decide the parameters if we include college which I eyes I haven't said is not fair game obviously then that changes things Todd Jones still texting away Frank Robinson he offers I've got Todd Jones in Kerry colds and and Tom if we could do we could do like a zoom tonight B. Todd Jones Kerry calls a top gamble on assume just throwing out names and arguing about their greatness so if we did the college angle on this is a player then that changes the dynamics of all of this and I would be remiss if I went to the break without mentioning Larry Bird yes Larry Bird well I I don't need to make his case as a college player or an NBA player it certainly stands on its own Larry Bird won coach of the year Larry Bird one executive of the year now my parameters is coach manager not front office guy necessarily but he took what he took a team to the NBA finals did he not so that's pretty good Todd Jones now sending me a mo Jeez up comes up with a beer so now it makes me want have a beer we could do is soon tonight the four of us while drinking beer about that Andrew Scott please deflected Nick and Richard how did all this start all all I give full credit to Mike decourcy because he wrote about FC Cincinnati's coach and the idea of how we're conditioned to believe in North America all great players meet it all time great player means little it in terms of the relation to their ability to be successful as a coach or as a manager you can be outstanding and how you play the game it doesn't necessarily translate to being outstanding and how you coach or manage the game so I've always thought well then who would we consider the best match for that category six more calls we continue arnelle Kerrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred WLW traffic and weather news radio seven hundred W.

LA I don't remember that he may have you know Ron was a very good player and very confident player and I love coaching camps but we we had defensive scheme set up you know and I want it Craig eagle who have been playing very well for us to stay up on him and you know although Craig took a step the wrong way because he thought he said they were going to pass the ball into the low post and that Michael got free but current group coverage and was right there and Michael didn't make an easy shot he made a tough shot that's a point we've we've been making you're going he made like this on human shot right I mean you know it's just a series of spending an error and letting you all fly by him seem to hang forever yeah forever you just seem to be there like he was stuck on something very well then made the adjustment with the shot we just some kinda all right I'm gonna put a little more juice on this and he fired up there no one in mazing I will consider that's this morning by the guys and he has been away thinking about it now should you have or would you like to have done it differently with Harper on Michael I don't know I I you know like I said you know we were a good defensive team will one of the top defensive teams in the league at the time and certainly you know you you've you've got to give Michael credit he made a incredible shot over Craig and you know but what people forget a lot is the play before that when we were down by one we set up a back door plays and evil was the guy who scored and maybe we scored too quickly the fact that gave them one more second but you know or else it wouldn't of county so so you know to still look back you can you can always that could have done this because I've done that ice I thought the judgment we made was good by the way Lenny Wilkens eighty two how about it still going strong oil price still sounds sharpen together going strong right but nobody recalls this so you know this was Ron Harper just been sitting out all these years was Ron Harper thinking that he never really said it but now thirty years later it's kind of giving you say oh yeah I told coach put me on Michael I could guard him yeah memories have a tendency to goal Hanya you talk about Russia's efforts things you thought the things actually said are two different things there you go I go back and look at games and I. G. try to remember conversations you're having on the sidelines and what you're doing back then and I'm just talking about your early nineties you know why we did certain things against certain teams and I remember talking but I can't remember absolute specifics about it you know why one guy did why they moved Reggie inside that kind of stuff yeah you know usually we get it it works so whatever we're doing we're doing it right and then you try to remember and it's not always there a hundred percent at the end of the day the defense was still really good and they tried even deny that Mike was it I think it was was a bread board of somebody who was you guys there right I kind of you know just looking at Michael with his back to the in bounder just sort of shadowing where Michael is going to go I mean everybody knew where the ball was going right yeah we're just trying to do whatever they could do deny him the ball Michael was able to free himself though and that was the key obviously and he quickly I knew that my tummy quickly took well I don't know one or two dribbles problems all I needed I went across the free throw line yeah exactly but you go up there but they had I mean yeah you you could see what the plan was was to try to deny him the ball like when Michael is just able to free himself I was watching some of the ninety eight conference finals last night for a little bit they were playing game two and it was remarkable that whole series of people remember watch Scotty guard mark Jackson and it brought everybody back to ninety one when Scotty was guarding magic and how it kind of changed some things in that series reasonable sort of always attributed although I I'll be honest with you the bulls pretty much dominated the Lakers in that series even the game they lost Europe when the bulls lost game one I they were right there to win Michael even said it the other night you know they even played out while they were still right there it took a Sampark inst three right I I think it's for Iraq and with like fourteen seconds left for the Lakers to win that game in two of the four bowls wins the bulls actually beat the snot out of the way because they ran out in those games they ran away from home I mean they really did dominate that series with people always said once the switch was made and and Scotty started guarding magic at all virtually all ninety four feet that kind of change things in there was candy again in that series against Indiana then seven years later doing it to mark Jackson and I and I was watching it last night and it was almost every possession where Scotty and it takes a lot of you know mental and and physical dedication I think to play a game like that where you're constantly hounding and harassing the other team's point guard the whole way up the floor and it's gonna be a grind on the opposing point guard but there was gonna be doing it but the one thing that and I know what for a younger audience probably we sound like we're beating a dead horse but you just you you can't believe if you're not used to if you if you never stop acting you can't believe how physical you were allowed to be I mean the way my it with the way Scott he could get his body into him you know kind of get his hand up get his body in them that's not just not allowed anymore news it's incredible to think that they were allowed to guard that way back then it's a reminder I guess for all of us and you go wow man remember those days and then for a younger generation they look at it maybe like you gotta be kidding I mean that wasn't right rights where's the fun none of that was allowed back then it is not it is a lot of that excuse me I mean it's it's crazy the other thing I can't get over the graphics these big graphics and everything you're doing now right you didn't have to crawl on the bottom though you have data that you're looking for more information on the bottom there's no information on the bottom no none of it I Carmen Electra was on the station yesterday boy you gotta ask Miller Tyler asked Miller where the moan as they isolated the mon did you hear the mon your call I did not hear the module asked Miller real quick voice where the moan is and then they started planted side by side the Paula Faris the famous Paula Faris moan and Paul had a moan yeah you remember that was Polemon about give Miller in here I know he's a germaphobe he didn't want to get too close to Tyler probably Tyler from the board right now another play yeah the Moen side by side there's midway Jeff Miller and played both of them the karma lecture let out a good a good morning that's Thursday which one who is that you guess I do it again aw that's Carmen Electra you know your mon Sir how played qualifiers oh god both of them I don't know it's a moan off your sure to that if I was doing connected Mrs magician eggs not rip open the envelope go to sounds Randi Marcon is.

Everything else is awful it every night. But I'd ease. You got any idea to go especially with the Milwaukee with all those injuries?
