"Not one, not two. I sound like LeBron James, not three, actually three, three, though. Three Hall of Famers all of them part of the NBA's 75th anniversary team. They are bob Pettit, an 11 time all star and two time MVP and NBA champion in 1958 with the St. Louis hawks, followed by elvin Hayes, a 12 time all star and NBA champion in 1978 with the Washington bullets and lastly Rick berry 12 time all star and NBA champion in 1975 with the Golden State Warriors, Rick, in particular, as always had a lot to say, but a lot of fun stuff to with mister Hayes and mister Pettit. Had the honor and the pleasure of sitting down with all three of these gentlemen during all star weekend in Cleveland, many thanks to the national basketball retired Players Association, also known as the legends for setting us up, shout out to PRA Julio mantega, does a great job over there. Next week's Friday crossover, by the way, will also feature a legend and member of that 75th anniversary team, but that's a more extended conversation. I'm just gonna leave that as a teaser, won't tell you who yet, but you do not want to miss that one either. Please remember to subscribe, rate, and review the crossover wherever you get your podcasts and hit me with all your feedback on Twitter at Howard Beck. Okay, my chats with three of the greatest players in NBA history are coming up next. So stick around. This is the crossover and NBA show hosted by Sports Illustrated's Chris mannix and Howard back. It's a whole new level for you and me, Chris. This relationship. Like and subscribe for the best weekly NBA content these two are capable of. What does that mean? It could be the best duo ever. I don't see how you can beat that. Here they are. Chris mannix and Howard back. Now very pleased to be joined by an 11 time all star two time MVP member of the 75th anniversary team. Bob Pettit, bob, thank you for joining me. Pleasure to be here. Beautiful day in Cleveland. Beautiful day in Cleveland. I don't understand outside. We are inside we are safe from the ice and snow. When you come back to an event like this, when you get a chance to be immersed in today's NBA again, what strikes you? What about today's NBA strikes you the most? Well, number one, I think, you know, the difference that so many differences what strikes me is that number one is watching these players are so great today. I mean, we had great players and I think the players that we had back in the 50s and 60s, you know, they could play some guys like Oscar and Elgin Baylor and Jerry West and Bill Russell wilt. Those guys could play anytime anywhere and but they were only 8 teams in the league when I played today there. 30 something NBA teams and the talent is so incredible. The three point shot I think is added a lot to the game. The fans seem to love it and they get all excited about it. It's different and the main thing too, one of the main things is the media coverage. You know, when you look here, we played back in our first All-Star Game was 1955. I think in New York, bizarre recall, and you might have one interview and one sports writer there that wanted to talk to you, but basically it's so different today. And it's so important today to psyche if that's the right word of the American people. They love professional basketball. They love the NBA. They love these great players and they become they become like folk heroes to these young men and old men. Some of the ladies really enjoy them. So there's a whole different atmosphere today and now I enjoy coming back and occasionally a like this weekend. I'll have a chance to visit with some of the guys that I played with and against. And they're not many that are still living there. Most of them, I was one of the ambassadors selected for a particular era of time and I think the main thing was I'm still alive. There's a lot of them. The players that could play it in that era of unfortunately didn't make it, but you know, it's a great time to come a great time to see all these great players and to attend the different functions and I'm being cited and I'm excited to bring my wife has come to my son and grandson and we have a great time and I look forward to it and all excited about it. It was such a big man dominant league back in your day. And for most of the history of the game, it was really about the guys in the paint and the guys who could score from close range. And it is such a, it's a more diverse game because there's still bigs who are dominant, but there are, as you point out, the three point shot is so prominent. That change that is shifted that it has shifted toward the outside, did you ever worry that the big man was going to become less relevant in the game because of the three point prominent and more about anything. In those days, I was happy to be here. I was a kid, barely 21 years old when I joined the league. I was drafted by the Milwaukee hawks, never heard of them when I came out of college. I was not for me with all the teams in the NBA. So if it was a different world and I loved it, and I was enjoyed it. So I can't say enough great things about the NBA today. You were one of the all time great rebounders. I jotted down a couple things here. You averaged 16 rebounds a game for your career over 11 seasons. Your career per game averaged 16.2 per game is still the third all time. Including 20 rebounds per game in the 60s, 61 season. Those numbers sound mind boggling to me now. Is rebounding just not as much of an art. Today is just the game is just played differently. What made you such a dominant rebounder? Well, I think rebounding is nothing but hard work. And you know, you're watching a game today and many of the big players don't go to the basket to follow the shots. You know, in my case, it was 5 or 6 points a game hanging on the offensive board, so I went after him and I can honestly say that I went rebounding was the most important thing in my game, I thought. Did I score yes? You said 26 points a game for 11 years. 26 plus. But the thing I looked at and it was most conscious of was my rebounding. And I lived in the arrow with the two greatest rebounders in history and Wilton big Bill Russell. And they averaged 22 rebounds a game in here, my little 16.2 or three or four rebounds is pales in comparison, but I was proud of it, and as you say, I think I'm probably the third leading rebounder in history has always rebounds for gaming. So I don't think that it rebounding is simply warning it more than anything in the world. You get in there and you go every single time. You don't go once out of twice. Once out of three times to the board, I went every single time to get the offensive rebound and get the defensive rebound. So it's just hard work and you have to really, I think it's a state of mind. You really have to, you know, I'd look up and I played with players and I'd get the ball off the backbone and turn around in my other rebound. It was not at the other end waiting for me to throw it to him so he could get a layout. And I never did that. I went.

Ruth goes on to win multiple world series and becomes one of the best if not the best baseball player in history dominating the red sox now the bleacher report ends the article by saying how could anything be worse. Not so fast. My friends as lee. Corso would say you see today on this episode. We're going to put lots of different pieces together and we're gonna talk about the worst deal that was ever brokered in geopolitical history deal. That might have been done. Intentionally to weaken america and strengthen our arab enemies in two thousand fourteen of may two thousand fourteen turning-point. Usa was just getting started. We were just starting to get some momentum to try to get on campuses. And i remember vividly where i was. I was at some hotel in the dallas area in may trying to raise money or do something and i turned on my television screen. It was a breaking news. Alert barack hussein obama announces a trade. Now it's not a trade for brett. Far from the falcons too the packers. It wasn't a trade of bill russell. Some no name. It wasn't a trade of some musical for babe. Ruth no no no. It was a trade for the terrorists. All star team from gitmo five of them the fab five. The killers for a traitor. Many of you will now remember this quickly. Some of you that are younger. That are listening. Have no memory of this. This was the famous beaubourg doll for gitmo trade. That happened in may of two thousand fourteen. Now bowe bergdahl is a traitor to the united states. He abandoned his fellow soldiers. In fact several soldiers died looking for bowe bergdahl including clayton. Bowen kurt curtis darryn andrews michael murphy matthew martin and morris walker. All of them died looking for bowe bergdahl who abandoned and betrayed his country yet. Obama was very quick to try to execute this deal to try to to release five terrorists from gitmo for one trader to the united states. And who was overseeing this whole deal. Joe biden now when this was happening those of us that were in politics we couldn't really make sense of what was going on. So let's go back cut twenty. This was the abc news. Report laying out who the five prisoners were and who they traded for bergdahl cut twenty. All five detainees were active taliban fighters and planners three held leadership posts in the taliban government. Muhammed fossil was a former deputy minister of defense and founding taliban member of dual Hawk was seek was a former deputy intelligence minister. And confidante of top taliban leader mullah omar mohlala norrie was a senior taliban commander in northern afghanistan and one of the highest ranking taliban held at guantanamo so five talent three out of five taliban leaders while we were actively at war against the taliban and the taliban were killing american soldiers american journalists we were trading five terrorists for a traitor cut seventeen. What did bowe bergdahl do. That was so bad. We'll bret baier in. October of two thousand seventeen tells you exactly what he did. Cut seventeen. jim. Bo bergdahl will indeed enter a plea monday to charges that he endangered comrades by walking off his remote post in afghanistan in two thousand nine reported last week. That bergdahl is expected to plead guilty to those charges. No word on whether there's an agreement on his punishment but the misbehavior before the enemy charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison. While the desertion charge is punishable by up to five years and then throughout this whole thing one of the most bizarre moments was bowe. Bergdahl father a white man with a long beard. Start speaking arabic at the white house. Praising obama for bringing bowe bergdahl back to the united states and saying thank you for doing this cut twenty seven when beaubourg dolls father starts uttering arabic as he himself and islamic believer or sympathizer certainly. Looks like one cut twenty-seven. I'd like to say to bowe right now. Having trouble speaking. English beat off on iraqi album. I'm your father bowe People have ghanistan the same Kelly file phony.

What ended up happening was that we traded the five prisoners the five terrorists of the taliban leadership for bowe bergdahl deserter cut. Twenty six obama says that trading five prisoners for bergdahl release and he's working with the qatari government to ensure our national security. Cut twenty six as part of this effort. The united states is transferring. Five detainees from the prison in guantanamo bay to qatar.

The art of the statesman is to make deals under pressure to hopefully benefit the homeland and disadvantage the enemy this deal was brokered a traitor for tear all star team.

Oh, three when they had patients Toya, Ko vich, Mike Bibby, Chris Webber Vladi Divac. That was one of the best teams that never made it and they got screwed over by the referees. But still they trade in Kobe Bryant for Vladi Divac. Not a good deal number two. The great Bill Russell One of the best basketball players ever when the ST Louis Hawks traded Bill Russell to Boston for Ed Macauley and Cliff Hagan in 1956. Russell went on to be the best NBA center of all time, arguably, and he led the Celtics to 11 NBA titles. 11 for one player, the most of any franchise, storied franchise and basketball on the worst deal. Ever brokered in sports history. Was, of course. The legend of the Bambino. The Boston Red Sox traded future baseball star Babe Ruth for $100 100,000 dollars and a $300,000 loan to finance a musical called No, No, Nannette. Of course, Babe Ruth. Goes on to win multiple World Series and becomes one of the best, if not the best baseball player in history, dominating The Red Sox. Now the bleacher report ends the Article by saying, How could anything be worse? Not so fast. My friends as Lee Corso would say. You see today on this episode, we're going to put lots of different pieces together, and we're going to talk about the worst deal that was ever brokered in geopolitical history, a deal that might have been done Intentionally to weaken America and strengthen our Arab enemies. In 2014 of May. 2014 Turning point USA was just getting started. We were just starting to get some momentum. Try to get on campuses and I remember vividly where I was. I was at some hotel in the Dallas area in May. Trying to raise money or do something and I turned on my television screen. It was a breaking news alert. Barack Hussein, Obama announces. Trade. No, It's not a trade for Brett Farr from the Falcons to the Packers. It wasn't a trade of Bill Russell is some no name. Er It wasn't a trade of some musical for Babe Ruth. No, no, no. It was a trade. For the terrorist All Star team from Gitmo. Five of them The Fab Five the killers. For a trader. Many of you will. Now remember this quickly. Some of you that are younger that are listening. Have no memory of this. This was the famous Bowe Bergdahl for Gitmo trade That happened in May of 2014. Now, Bo Bergdahl is a traitor to the United States. He abandoned his fellow soldiers, in fact. Several soldiers died looking for Bowe Bergdahl, including Clayton Bowen. Kurt Curtiss, Daryn Andrews, Michael Murphy. Matthew Martinek and Morris Walker. All of them died looking for Bowe Bergdahl, who abandoned and betrayed his country. Yet Obama was very quick to try to execute this deal. To try to to released five terrorists from Gitmo. For one trader to the United States and who was overseeing this whole deal. Joe Biden. Now, when this was happening, those of us that were in politics we couldn't really make sense of what was going on. So let's go back Cut 20. This was the ABC news report laying out who the five prisoners were and who they traded for Bergdahl cut 20. All five detainees were active Taliban fighters and planners, three held leadership posts in the Taliban government. Mohammed Fossil was a former deputy minister of defense and founding Taliban member Abdul HAQ. Wasiq was a former deputy intelligence minister and confidant of top Taliban leader Mullah Omar. Hello. Nora Winery was a senior Taliban commander in northern Afghanistan and one of the highest ranking Taliban held at Guantanamo. So five tel. Three out of five or Taliban leaders while we are actively at war against the Taliban and the Taliban. We're killing American soldiers and American journalists. We were trading five terrorists for a traitor. Cut 17. What did Bo Bergdahl do? That was so bad? Well, Bret Bear in October of 2017 tells you exactly what he did Cut 17. And Bo Bergdahl will indeed enter a plea Monday to charges that he endangered comrades by walking off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2000 and nine. We reported last week that Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty to those charges. No word on whether there is an agreement on his punishment. But the misbehavior before the enemy charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, while the desertion charge is punishable by up to five years. And then throughout this whole thing, One of the most bizarre moments was Bo Bergdahl's father. White man with a long beard starts speaking Arabic at the White House, praising Obama for bringing Bowe Bergdahl back to the United States and saying Thank you for doing this cut 27. When Bo Bergdahl's father starts uttering Arabic. As he himself an Islamic Believer or sympathizer. Certainly looks like one cut 27. I'd like to say to bow right now, Who's having trouble speaking English? Bismillah Rahman Rahim, the R B m. I'm your Father, Bo, Um people of Afghanistan, the same, um Khalifa al Funny. Uh, the complicated nature of this recovery was will never really be complement, Comprehended. Now do we have the one we started speaking Arabic? We do. Maybe I wasn't here in the whole tape, so that's fine. So What ended up happening was that we traded the five prisoners. Five. Terrorists of the Taliban leadership. For Bowe, Bergdahl, the deserter. But 26 Obama says that trading five prisoners for Bergdahl's release and he's working with the Qatari government to ensure our national security. But 26 As part of this effort, the United States is transferring five detainees from the prison in Guantanamo Bay to Qatar. The Qatari government has given us assurances that it will put in place measures to protect our national security. Also want to express gratitude to the Afghan government, which is always supported our efforts to secure Bowe's release. To secure Bowe's release..

"Where unlike middleton i feel like middleton like booker like chris paul knows where his spots are breaking roll and i think drew was kind of taking what the defense gives him and i think that just that just puts his sons defense especially eight. But i mean they're all kinds of their conservative and deceptive. You know they want you to take. Low percentage shots. So they're going to try to go into those And withdrew going the row of okay. Let's he's kind of just seeing how much closer he can get to the rim essentially and that's just a great way miss layups over deandre eytan essentially. That's kind of. That's kind of what's been happening to him. All series as opposed to like you know middleton just being a little bit more methodical. But i agree with jackie honestly. I just think he's doing a law is the set. This is going to go six. At least it might go seven. I think you wanna use him to just try to wear down chris. Paul and booker in whatever you can get from him like considered a bonus but honestly like it's like what you said. Jackie when you have when you have that type of mentality or shooting stroke or whatever you wanna call it Maybe it's just a moment of self. Del like whatever it is. You can't guarantee that that guy is always gonna be consistent. Like i don't really necessarily want to be running much stuff for him Honestly i would lean if you need to lean even more heavily on middleton and pick and roll like. I feel like that's a big reason. They also didn't turn the ball over very much He was just he was just really good in it So yeah. I think don't know i just i just feel like drew. Holiday deserves a bit of a defense. I get that. He's not shooting well and everybody is kind of focused on that. But it's just he's doing so much like full court press in the nba finals for a whole game. Like try squatting down that low for like for like five seconds you know like for me five seconds but like it's just yeah it's it's it's really incredible. He's also he's creating a ton of points with his steals like he's he's creating good offense for them. It's just not in the way that you know Chris paul or booker or middleton does sense sear. it still hasn't been line for finals be potentially with two big games may be st. I had a. He was nine to one before the finals. But it does seem. I guess jaanus or booker now. The way this series is yeah. Those would be yeah you to candidates. Hey some folks are quick to doubt the rookies or even understate. Their excellence their playoff series. Make no mistake. This is their time to shine and show out with career defining moments on that court. Here's a famous on minna. Go way back for your thinking about. Overlooked rookies Tom heinsohn who passed away recently. legendary celtics announcer hall of famer really great underrated player but as a rookie. Nineteen fifty seven celtics. The celtics had never won. The title goes to a game seven against the saint. Louis hawks bob cousy is terrible. Bow cousy goes to for twenty. Can't make a shot. He got bill russell. He's a rookie. Not totally an offensive player. He's only scored nineteen They need a hero. And who's the hero. Holy cross his own. Tommy heinsohn rookie puts up thirty seven points. Twenty three rebounds seventeen for thirty three Was awesome and fouls out in double. Ot what happens to this game goes to double ot heinsohn vows out. Famous shot of him crying on the sidelines. Can't believe he found out at the celtics end up winning the game in the last minute. They win by two. He gets carried off the court. There's a famous photo of him All these people surrounding him. It's one of the great rookie moments of all times in the finals. You heard about magic in nineteen eighty heard about some other ones but i think that was the first great one and that's a wrap. Just like these rookies like tommy heights at one on the court you can win with your insurance getting the personalized service of a local agent offer. Surprisingly great rate with state farm like a good neighbor state.

Everybody expects you to get everybody lodge against like there's some truth you are because also the last thing that i knew. I had to bring up with you. Dwayne gave me the entire rundown of every time. The milwaukee bucks played in the nba finals. So i wanna give trivia here okay. I finals the bucks appeared in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy one. They want it. Do they play celtics. no they played. I believe the baltimore bullets. Right swept the baltimore bullets. Nineteen seventy four the bucks make. Nba finals again. Who did they play. That was going to say. The sons allies lost that one seven games. Not just like nazism lakers. Here's crazy thing. The milwaukee bucks were in the western conference at saint. Louis hawks was good gas gas now. That was way earlier those early so he lost to eastern conference. Team is what you're telling an eastern conference team and that's what threw me off. They're getting in the stream team here. It was celtics. One early seventies.

"That have made it. You know it's like yes. We can't do anything about the injuries. The injuries are as i say part of the game. This is extreme example. But the one thing. I took away from last night's game. A games left. I find these three teams left immensely likable. Just like all the teams. I mean you've got. They got good storylines. I think atlanta not saint. Louis hawks never never won. The phoenix suns have never won. And the milwaukee bucks having one and a half centuries. It's marcus welby was practicing medicine on tv. So i you need to know that my mentor. My big brother. Mr ryan is actually going to do a parting. shot today on the fresh macy's but just to simply poos as once again with great minds invariably bop bop okay. Let me just say this okay. Because i've been thinking about this and the injuries and the way. Lebron has led the charge. That the season's too long they cramped it in. We should've start bub. Okay thick about this and bobby. We may have talked about this the other day. I don't know if we did or not. I'm starting to think that the lakers winning last year might have been more an outlier than an indication of things to come. Because of the circumstances they did not have to come up along grinding season. Okay they were. In the bubble everything was set up perfectly for them and ryan. I'll say this lebron james who's so critical of the schedule if you want a smaller schedule and the national basketball association. Here's a way to start. The conversation. labant offered to take less money to play that shorter season. Another thing is it's not completely supportable simply because what does compressed number of games have to do with trae young coming down on a referee's foot what does that have to do with the honest blocking dunk and coming down and hurting his kyrie irving rolling and ankle on. The answer is nothing so a lot. I said this the other night on twitter. And i know you agree with me okay. What happened to trae young could have happened in the first five minutes of the year. The gordon hayward got hurt okay. It could have happened at any moment during the nbc's so the idea that he was worn down as a bunch of crap absolutely. The other seasons too long are the playoffs too long. I don't know. I mean it's an arbitrary but i agree with you about last year being an outlier. You know. we're seeing that also all about the dodgers a little bit. There's still a terrific team. They still may be there. But they're not the dynamo and they to play one hundred six robert exactly right. They got to play one hundred. Sixty two at ryan. Maybe mookie wilson mookie betts. Excuse me is missing getting to play. Half his games at fenway park. More than we thought he would when he went to the los angeles dodgers. You know and it's interesting. Alex is having as good as statistical year although he suddenly doesn't have the same defensive capability but yeah it is. It's fenway is a very very welcoming place for for hitters by the way let's talk about last night's game because because when it was all on the line okay and they are in a closeout game. Paul did go crazy. Okay and you know who didn't go crazy paul. George didn't go crazy. He had quite ordinary game. His greatness from him was far more intermittent during the and obviously without kawhi. It's easier to defend. Paul george but i have to say the chris paul who i know bob ryan loves him robert because he he functions in a world where does not need the three point basket. Okay never really has and chris. Paul had his signature moment. Okay when it was all on the line. I team not at a deciding game but what felt like a deciding game and and what what did they bob. Did they get the lead to seven. I think they got it to seven seven. And then he what. He scored like fifteen when it got the seven after having been seventeen on teno run. He's the one that stopped the bleeding with a three right there and then and then was ironic that it was a three to bobby. They see the thing is look you know we. I'll save the polemic onto three for another day The thing is it's part of his arsenal. It is not the dominant part of his he. It isn't his raison-d'etre he's not set. Step he's he's chris. Paul he's got this is analogous to larry. When larry was in his prime the three was part of the game that he could utilize because he was capable of doing it but he didn't make it the focal point of his game. Chris paul's sweet spot is that is the lane in and is the extension of the lane. It is it is so-called mid range game. he's a master. He went anywhere he wanted to go last night. In that second half for thirty one points went anyway. Wanted to go. Patrick beverley who whoever. Nobody could stop them from doing what he wanted to do. Robert well let me ask you a question about chris paul because you had a front row seat to his clippers career. How how do you are. You swept away by this moment. i like it. I think it's a good narrative. But i think the whole phoenix suns story is a good narrative. I mean what about gaetano last night and how good a game. This guy play booker. we're seeing and monty. Williams is a good narrative. The chris paul thing. Yeah you like to see guys. It's just a good sports. You know a narrative guy who's never been to the finals always respected holster. Probably a hall of fame player. I'd probably pretty sure but you know so. He's finally there you know. It's a good narrative and it's fun. It is a could narrative and the other thing too is in today's game. What i'm noticing and i'm sure you've talked about this when you have talked about. How much more important guard play than ever ever ever before to me. I see all these guards that are just you know just unique great guards to win today but i you are talking to the president and vice president of the eight and fan club. Okay what dr- ryan. What a draft. That was by the way eight and goes before luca at before trae young and he has another an a plus game last night bombing. We're talking about this the other day robert. Okay he does he ever shoot less than fifty percent. Not that. I can remember eight for ten last night. Sixty nice points. Seventeen rebounds he is. He is a joy to watch because he is. He is like an old fashioned center. Two point zero i. bob. That's the only way i can think about it. Okay a more athletic faster but playing an in a lot of ways an old fashioned close to the basket game..

Let us back up and we got back to the seats. They throughout both rose gone so they didn't get to see the game. Not only did you get knocked out. Your team won the national championship. So you've got to deal with the rest of your life because that was florida's last basketball championship. But then i get to enjoy the game with my father and an empty row so after beating people up i better as a man no nothing like i don't even know another day will top that and like for my dad. That's our. that's like a one bonding moment. Where like holy shit. It was too against fucking stairs not another day. No day in your life. And if jerry. If you're watching at home right now. I might. He might be two day love you. That was one of the funnest days. It'd be great fun stays in my life. I love you pops. So big big fan really does draw family together. You know brought us a lot closer that day but it was very similar to that where it was just. It was so many punches. I didn't know what was coming from. I just tried to knock as many people as i possibly could. And then the next thing you know. The police are the ninety because it was at a national championship. So there's a lot of police. It was bombarded like ninety police officers and they did their job. Not the police's fault. They did their job in the end. Yeah luckily somebody was honest about what happened that day and there was a couple of heroes left standing so i was really sore the next day though really sore but yeah you gotta use that that pushback technique that homeboy us because that's the only way to get them off their feet because they're not expecting it in the seats are only like yay high. So like you're going back immediately so pro you could hit. You could not my fucking probably not my fucking probably snag snaps like that. Could we've can manslaughter type. Shit sorry about it again. Not my faults so when you come talkin shit like that. Sometimes you meet your maker. And that's what happened that it's great great either way atlanta fans versus sons fans. Now we're gonna get to see some fucking real goddamn action there because atlanta fans dude or hard core like there there. I will say this right because the hawks have never been ever made the finals in our history never even wanna goddamn champ. That's not true. The saint louis hawks won a championship. And i believe that is a city that is nowhere near atlanta that i ever cared about before they moved to atlanta that's their loan nba championship. Yeah some respect in saint. Louis hawks my great grandparents were from fucking panja. I don't go around saying i'm paying gin or make people call me that. I'm an american. Just get ready for that fact to be info graphic one hundred fucking times but the atlanta fans that are there that have been waiting all this time one now that this is going on if they go to the finals that is a fucking powder keg waiting to go off against to fan bases who haven't won a championship. I don't even the sons. I've ever won a championship. Sons have never wanted change the city of both cities. I think only have one championship each in. Its both a random world series no now.

They're going to have to find a way to defend. yana switch. even the nets didn't do a very good job of even though he's with his bull in the china shop of style of play. But you know now. We're at the point. Where no more house money now. No more okay. Therefore wins away from the nba finals. Okay something the hawks haven't done what sixty years since they were the saint. Louis hawks right. That was the only time. And and i tell you something. This segues into the bucks series mitch. The hawks aren't one of those. And i'm putting air brackets around this super teams okay. They were built through the jeff john collins. Okay kevin herder trae young. It's one of the things they're young they're long. They're athletic and they're fun to watch. And and mitch. They are going up against a team. And i don't know who other than the bucks dot that they were gonna go into brooklyn even with harden injured even with kyri not there and win game seven against kevin durant the way they were playing. And i'll tell you something. Mitch and i say this to basketball fan friends of mine for the past couple of days. All love praise for the legendary performances of kevin durant. Okay but don't go to sleep on the the guy who also scored forty points on saturday night and that is jaanus and by the way. Mitch scored one more basket in overtime. The kevin durant it. Yeah well first of all that game seven is a classic and i. It was one of those times that i wish that we were still on sunday mornings because we could've talked about it right after saturday night. If you think about this if kevin durant moves his sneaker about a half an inch back. The nets are in the eastern conference finals right now. There is no overtime that shot that he hit that to send the game into overtime. Sports is a game of inches. I forget maybe just came up permanent. I've heard it sounds like a foreign expression him but he was. He was literally an inch or less on that line. And we're not even having this discussion right now. And i just i just Remember a line that they. I think it was once attributed to jack johnson. He could beat anybody he just couldn't beat all of them you know. And and it's the same thing for kevin durant. He can make any shot he had to. He just couldn't make every shot and by the end. The brooklyn nets had disintegrated down to give the ball to kevin and have him save us that. That's that's basically what they were and he almost did it again. At the end he will forever. And i'm sure other people will forever be debating on that final shot whether he just should have spun often. Go gone down the basket. Who would have stopped. There was literally nobody nobody on that side of the court but there might have been something inside of him that said i can't do another overtime period. I got a win this thing now. Because i don't have anything. Put up an air ball and i. I was tweeting about this on saturday night. And i love steve nash okay and he had decided what he was gonna do on saturday. Night kevin durant played all fifty three minutes. Okay and i don't take any objective. Person could look at the overtime and not think he was guest. James harden on plan on one. Good hammy played all fifty three minutes. Okay the they basically played five guys. Jeff green but away just a quick sidebar on jeff. Green didn't he scored like twenty seven points and game five. He didn't take a shot on saturday night. He zero zero. They went with five guys. And mitch i swear to god. It showed up in the overtime. I mean you can try to win a regulation game with that and just gas it out to the end. But you're right mike. There's only five guys who scored iran harris griffin who had unbelievably great game for guy was supposed to be done. I mean he. He left everything out there. Harden and and bruce brown who also had a fantastic game played fifty two minutes. Mike bruce brown played fifty two hard play. Fifty-three durant played fifty three. Yeah harris played. Forty-seven you're right. They they were going to die on that hill. And maybe that's why durant said this has got to be three or gone because we're not lasting at you holiday you gotta see. He played him straight up. Mitch and i know a lot of people always say why is it janas on him because holiday is capable of being a one on one defender like that. Okay and let me. Just say i will do. A major may ecopa. Today i will never say another bad word about. Chris middleton okay because he was the best player in the gym in the overtime he made two huge shots and mitch in a game. Seven where talking about trae young coming back from a horrible shooting hap- okay. Milton was twelve for eleven in the first half and i thought he played his ass off in the second half. I thought holliday had the same kind of shooting first half and showed me something about both of them the way they played possession after possession with their season online. Yeah and we need to talk about. Milwaukee obviously more to come now. It's going to be interesting series between them and the hawks but we need to to sort of do the post mortem on the brooklyn nets so this was the grand experiment of the twenty twenty twenty twenty one season the assemblage of the nets adding kyrie irving durant coming back from his injury hard and of course finding his way onto the team forcing his way onto the team At the beginning of the season by basically just just shutting himself down in houston and getting what he wanted by going to where he wanted to go i am. I know you're going to parting. Shot on this later on and good good for that because it needs to be said i for one am not particularly upset that the nets are out or the lakers are out. We'll see what happens with the clippers because this assemblage of all we need are a couple of superstars three super three superstars two superstars and two fantastic superstars..

How do not give Nate McMillan the game? Hey, thanks for the ride. Do you're out? They're going to have to reward this guy and let him up. Put him in place as a head coach. But the Hawks just have this next. Dude, they survived. They they just they're not rattled. This team does not get rattled. I mean, clearly they can win game sevens on the road. They close out the Knicks in Madison Square Garden, so they'll go into a hostile environment and win. I just don't know if they can compete with the bucks. I don't know. I think they can interesting Definitely they can, especially with Kevin hurt her out of Albany, Albany. Uh, then the late sixties, they would make the division the conference finals. I C. I can't help you with the late then it was only a two round deal. They had to win one round to get to the finals, but they lost the Lakers and 70. Many fewer teams backed basically in the last. What the last 50 years. The one trun? Yeah, and it was one that's happened during. We don't remember. Forgot it. No, I really don't remember the series way. Gigantes Basketball golf.

And wow yoka channels. That matchup could affect the outcome of the series. Yeah there's a really interesting tension in the teams. We have remaining brian where you have like legitimate. Mvp's or stars but also franchises that have not won titles really or at least not in a long time. So i'm looking at this list right now. We have eight teams remaining.

We'll be there. Saint louis hawks. Pablo i clearly. Clearly i have remembered the saint. Louis hawks nineteen fifty-eight but beyond that. We're looking at the clippers. The debts the sons the jazz and the nuggets all of whom combined for oh and forever so for all of the criticism that the league tends to take about the predictability of the postseason. How it's always the lakers. Or rather lebron and the spurs of the warriors like. What does all of this tell you about what we're watching right now. Well you know isn't a bummer for the nba. That is steph. curry is home. That lebron james is home Yeah it is. Those are guys that we've come to watch in the finals for the last decade but on the other side of it. We've got some just ascendant talent. We talked about trae young earlier. I mean he is just brilliant. I mean he has really must watch basketball right now. Booker with just one of the best games. You'll ever see a a yokich donovan mitchell with the jazz Has been just amazing. These are the guys are going to be watching for. The next decade. Yet will usually brian at this point. Have tiers of teams where it's like okay. Here are the favorites here. The sort of semi contenders here are the mediocrities. Here are the write offs with these eight teams. Is there a tier structure. That is obvious to you. How do you make sense of where these teams all fit in relation to each other pablo. It's a terrific terrific point. I mean if the nets were fully healthy. I'd have to say that they would be the favourite for most people because of just the star power that they have but now that hardman is is wounded and may be limited or down for a while. It is really difficult to see. Who's going to be in the finals. And even even if he gets the finals. How it's gonna play out. I mean what if we're at the start of a trae young run that is historic. What if we're at the start of devon booker run that his historic one. If the way the clippers ended this the series against the mavs close last two games the way they played. What if that is the beginning of them reaching the potential that they had when they formed this team. Two years ago the failed to touch you. Know what if yokich in the nuggets really are so special and michael porter. Jr. is the type of player who can overcome the loss of jamal. Murray mean you watch the jazz play and historically the way the jazz play. They are constructed and perform. I could championship team so no. I don't mean to be sell the the soap here but the reality is that the playoffs are truly unpredictable. At this point.

"Struck off the coast of California. 1960 emerges as the most disastrous earthquake year of modern times on the California coast it swept in at an angle, ripping coastal installations had causing heavy damages. But while the organization had to adjust to the ground moving beneath the moon occasion the NBA was amidst a much greater seismic shift, as the game's power had moved to the furthest franchise on the east coast and settled in an arena, built above the north station, where the Boston and Maine railroads met. It had originally been called Madison Square Garden. But it had been shortened to just the garden. Just a decade into the new NBA, when every team in the league was basically just thinking about survival, there was one team in one coach who are only thinking about basketball. And that was red auerbach, and of course the Boston Celtics, because prior to the 1956 season, the teammate three moved to change the course of history in the NBA, so Bill Russell may be remembered as the marquee pick in that draft, but he wasn't the Celtics first selection that year was Tommy heinsohn, a Ford from holy cross. As part of an effort to generate fan interest in the fledgling NBA. The league instituted a special rule, granting teams exclusive rights to claim locally based college players. That meant that Bill Russell, who was clearly the best player in the draft, would be next, and that's who arbok really wanted. And the problem was that Boston had the 7th pick, and there was no way Russell is going to slide to 7. But the Celtic coach had a plan. The St. Louis hawks always coveted Celtic all star Ed McCauley because he was from St. Louis. So arbok traded him for the number two pick, but that still didn't guarantee Russell, so arbok had to ensure that the Rochester royals who had the number one pick would pass on Russell. And so he did something crazy. Take the world from the sites and put it on ice last the ice to be throughout the 1940s and 50s, a group of arena owners had purchased a troop of dancing ice skaters, and created a touring show called ice capades.

"For the Packers helps restore the franchise. The prominence, they read it. Do you know? I'm sorry? No the Falcons picked with that first round pick. That's amazing. They got a first round pick for bread farm. They did. That is good job. That is a good job at that time. I mean that. If we were doing sports talk radio in that trade you be going. You gave up a first round pick for this guy. What about first drop down? He becomes the whole remember that that time we didn't know, you know? Yeah s Oh, yeah. He takes the Packers to Super Bowls, winning one, of course, the one in Super Bowl 31 against Bill Parcells and the New England Patriots. I know a lot of people with the football trades they bring up the Herschel Walker one. Just but you know again, the Vikings brought him in. That was supposed to be like the missing piece to the puzzle that was supposed to deliver them a championship. And, of course, it didn't work out. I think he was over there for like, three years in Minnesota didn't even have 1000 yard rushing season. It worked out for the Cowboys because again, they got a bunch of draft picks, and they wound up using those pics to help them build a court of this championship teams.

That ones that number five my basketball one number four. We're going all the way back now and now she took him. Marco Bloody. He didn't know this. Back to 1956 Bill Russell, the great Bill Russell.

They could not afford to pay him. So they were on the trading him to the Boston Celtics. And then what wound up happening? Boston wins 11 of the next 13 NBA championships, and Bill Russell becomes one of the greatest.
