"Hanks and others Where it sort of now? Sort of makes it real. So what kind of sense do you get on on those kind of fronts? Yeah I I think it makes a difference that it's an NBA player. And it's a pretty well known name fairly well known name That it puts a face on it that it makes it where the the early cases that were in Seattle. Well this is a senior home and it's really only infecting elderly people. This is a twenty something year old. Who is in prime world class physical athletic condition and he still was able to get it and so it. It makes you understand that. This isn't just relegated to certain groups of people. It's not a racial thing that an age thing. It's not a health thing that anybody can get this and obviously go. Beer is taking some heat because he was grabbing the microphones and and recorders That it was a joking matter and I think once you put a face to it in the NBA. A prominent face. That it's not a joking matter anymore. People know that this is serious stuff. And you don't know if you have it so everybody's GonNa WanNa go and get tested but the way that the medical Situation is set up. His there aren't enough test for everybody to go out and get it so just use common sense and and they said that from the very beginning. Wash your hands for twenty seconds. If you're sick don't go to work. don't Coughlin Peop- I mean. Just just very very simple stuff. That p your mother's been telling you for twenty or thirty years when you were a kid do this stuff and so it's and I've noticed where I'm going and I wash my hands. I started washing my hands. Somebody walked in the bathroom. Use the bathroom and walked out before I was done washing my hands. And so those are the ones that you have to reach with this common sense approach to it is that this isn't a joke. There people who cough and say. Oh my bad. I don't have the virus. Well you might. You don't know and so it's it's n- less of a joking matter and it's more of a serious matter and putting it. It's almost like when when Magic Johnson got any type came out and put a face on it you may have known people who had HIV but most people will remember where they were when magic. Johnson's press conference happened. And that made it real. It wasn't something just on the fringes anymore. This was real that everybody had to pay attention to and I think go bear Testing positive now. Donovan Mitchell makes it even more prevalent that that's been a case right and in given That this is pro athlete. And you know Tom. Hanks also stuff Our people now going to get on in a media over load Because everybody's going to be covering covering it it's going to be on. Cnn is going to be on ESPN. It's GonNa be everywhere that that sports fans and people Look at to try figure out what's going on. What what's your sense on that? Yeah I think it is going to be in. It's going to be part of the new cycle where it's There's so many other things going on but this is GonNa be front and Center within that And it should be because if you look at it on a worldwide basis and that's the other part is that Americans maybe didn't take it as seriously as they should have and taking measures And at first it was really more of going out and let's vile sanitizer that we can because that's the first step of it but it's not just using sanitizer. It's your behavior. It's the way that you handle When you're walking around in dealing with people and consciously I instead of just rinsing my hands off for five seconds and going about my business let me do it for twenty or twenty five just to be sure. Let me Cough out here and just be all out here with my illness and and For people who can't afford to do it if you don't feel well don't go to work. Don't try to expose other people. Take your fellow man into consideration when you do think. Because that's how this thing it's spreading so rapidly because people unconsciously or doing things or maybe consciously not following the directions but maybe this giving them the directive in the incentives to try to do it a little bit more. Sure and as a member of the media. How do you sort of balance that The balance of giving the proper information to people while also Not trying to over blow This situation GimMe thoughts on that. I'd just trying to tell people just like this interview. I'm just trying to tell people what my experience is in. What kind of makes sense to do is It's not illegal. Beer is is taking a lot of Negative flack online. Because he touched the microphones and he made light of Corona virus at the time. But you can't fault him. He didn't know if he did it. Knowingly it's a little bit different than Just kind of saying hey this. We're taking this abundance of caution to try to make sure that we're not spreading it but the media people. I think what he was saying in doing. That was your mic guys. I trust you. I've been around you but it highlights the fact that you don't know when you're sick you don't know until you're sick sure This is not pro related but you know the college world is going. You know topsy-turvy as we as we know it now. I mean the big ten big twelve. Sec AMERICAN CONFERENCE. All canceled their tournaments today And so what does the sort of meaning or signal about the NCAA And or about the march madness tournament and and also because you are former Michigan beat beat writer. How do you believe that the NCAA is going to be able to see two tournament When you have all of these countries that are getting rid of their champions That receive automatic bids. Yeah I think that's GonNa be a developing situation something just to watch because it may just end up pushing everything back very much like we're talking about with the NBA because if you don't have conference tournaments you can say it's the regular season champion. And that's what seems to be fair and I think people have to realize that this is an unprecedented situation. We've never had anything that's like this so you can't do business as usual with washing your hands and you can't do business as usual with how you're doing sports. I mean they could very easily just they cancel everything and we're not gonNA have an NCAA tournament period beer always financial considerations that go along with that. And it's good to see that the the individual conferences or cancelling tournaments but the final four is the big breadwinner. And all of this. That's the big chicken and you've got to kind of measure how that's going to happen. Maybe they just Cut it off at the end of the regular season and say we'll pick the teams based off of this or they'll come up with some agreeable way to do it so that the small schools don't get left out but I think that's going to be one of the more intriguing things to to watch that. I can't see them canceling the entire tournament. It's there's too much money at stake in and sadly to say it's palm money is going to drive a lot of the decisions that are getting made in terms of sporting events in the next few of of whether you're going to see them And I know the NBA. Kind of reluctantly Suspended the season again. They were trying to do it with no fans at all so that you can still get the TV money out of it but To say that you're not gonNA have any of these events whatsoever. I mean there's insurance costs there's been you cost. There's a lot of different things that go into this from a financial perspective that the NCAA the NBA. All of these leaks can't just eat the money. That's that goes into renting the The Georgia Dome and saying well. That's okay we're just not going to have it out of an abundance of caution they're gonNA figure out some kind of way to have it and televise it By the time this is all said and done that's just wipe it sure and just just for a point of reference Nfl cancel or postpone their season Earlier today as well And so I mean there's a lot of moving parts to everything that's going on and so you know we don't know what's what's going to happen next But we'll have to sort of sort all of this out folks will have to sort this out in just from my point of view. I think a lot of this is being driven by money If you're the big ten and you were expecting crowds of thirty thousand And you've limited it to two hundred and fifty people In a stadium I don't think that would have been the right choice And I think there was something that read About the situation today. Way Down at the bottom of the story. the the Commissioner of the Big Ten said. It wouldn't be financially prudent in order to do these things and so I do believe that Mo- money Is a big driver in all of this at the end of the day I think like I said the money decisions are going to be. What actually does it. And people have to realize it's not going to be You may have some inconvenience from a fan perspective. It is an inconvenience. You don't get to watch your favorite sport do but there are people dying and there's a widespread virus that's going around around the world. That's just put that in perspective If you're going to say well I don't get to watch the final four. I don't get to watch the NBA. Think about the players who are going through that and their families and and It's not a computer game. You don't just turn this on and these people play they have lives. They have feelings they have situations and families to that. They have to sort of think of and support. And if you don't have them as being humans and you don't have this machine that the sports machine that we have so we did all kinds of goes together but I think fan sometimes lose track and lose sight of that that they these are actually people who have other things going on to have Really go bear or Donovan Mitchell whip. They're not healthy. You can't have a lead you can't. It's just not the same sore and and while we're sort of on that kind of Issue Talk to me a little bit about the Locker Room Environment and I know a lot of leagues. In recent weeks have pulled the media out of of the locker rooms itself in terms of interviewing but described to people the locker room setting and sort of all of the things that could potentially Harm those who could be indirectly Involve with athletes. Well it's we were in the locker room in At Madison Square Garden on Sunday and so any locker room setting. I mean you've got people getting out of the shower and and Just any number. Sometimes when you're trying to interview a guy in a post game it is the media scrum. And you've got six or eight media members within a couple of feet of a guy's face and so there's that exposure to it but then it's also just if you want to talk to a guy and get a separate story do a one on one and you might sit down and talk face to face with a guy over over to the side a little bit more and I I.

"Well I guess maybe March eleventh is the day that sports came to a halt in America and across the world Joining me not from our studio from his home in DC were separated geographically but not in spirit. It's Stephan fats. Us AUTHOR OF THE BOOKS WORD. Freak and a few seconds of panic Stephan. Hi Josh and joining us from Palo Alto. It's late staff writer host slow-burn season three Joel Anderson. Hello Joel Good morning you know. We're all assembled here for the obvious reason that there will soon be no sports to talk about so maybe we should chat about them now while we can the NBA suspended. Its season on Wednesday nights after a Rudy Gobert Utah Jazz tested positive for the corona virus. We learned on Thursday that his teammate. Donald Mitchell had also tested positive We should stipulate From the top Stephan that we are recording this on Thursday morning. News of League suspensions postponements cancellations are coming in as we're recording this and so all the information where sharing here might be out of date by the time you listen to this but can you just run through what we know right. Now as we're recording sure Josh I have to say that the scenes late last night as the Rudy. Gobert situation unfolded were to me among the most dramatic news themes in sports. I don't know going back to Magic. Johnson's press conference when he announced that he had HIV. I mean it was stunning from a what would you bomb the NBA suspending season which sorta capped off this czar scene in Oklahoma City? Where this game was about to start between the jazz and the thunder and Dr runs onto the court and they confer with the referees. Chris Paul runs over to the jazz and asked. If there's something wrong with rudy go bear and they sort of push him away. The players leave the court though stadium. Announcer orders everyone to leave. It was just a stunning. If not in retrospect you know twelve. Later retrospect entirely surprising turn of events. So what do we know We know that Donovan Mitchell as you said has tested positive we know the NBA is on an indefinite hiatus. We know that other players are beginning to be reported to have to have corona virus. Not Just Mitchell player on you Venice in Italy a player on the German soccer club. Hanover have tested positive players. On Lester in England are reportedly showing symptoms Rail Madrid players are in quarantine. This is just GonNa be a daily flow of news and Events and it certainly if it wasn't already dramatic and apparent when you start hearing that athletes testing positive for celebrities are testing positive. Like Tom Hanks. It becomes all the more more frightening. And and newsworthy. Yeah I agree and I think Rudy. Gobert is in in this way sort of the perfect snapshot of the Collective American response to Corona Virus. Because it was a couple of days ago the video emerges of him at this press conference. He jokingly touches the reporter's recorders touches the Mike breeze over them before he walks off the set and then two days later. He's either right at the center of the NBA's you know pretty much unprecedented shutdown. And I think it is a testament to how quickly we got a grasp of how serious this is now. Obviously people far outside of sports that are dealing with much more serious implications for Kobe. Nineteen but I think it really took with the NBA did last night. It was actually within a span of thirty five minutes like the world fell apart in that way because yet trump's address you had the Rudy Gobert news yet the NBA suspending season. Like all of this torrent of news came at once and it was just you could see Americans a lot of the for the first time getting their head around how serious this is. And how disruptive it's going to be like because I think that a lot of people thought. Oh we'll we'll still have sports to lean on. We'll still have hope. Tv content to get us through this time and not that much will change. I'll have to make a few adjustments in wash my hands but it won't necessarily mean a change of lifestyle habits for me in. You could just see within that half hour last night which would have been not o'clock out on the east. Six o'clock out here that everybody just kind of got a hold of themselves like Oh wow like this is going to be one of the most disruptive moments in American history. So we've been talking for the last couple of weeks about this and I think our conversations have paralleled the larger discourse where we initially are talking about it. We're like you know looking back to nineteen eighteen for examples and seems really far away and hard to imagine what it could possibly be like then when we talked about it earlier this week. The kind of new reality that we're dealing with is oh. Lebron doesn't realize we're GONNA need to play without fans but he'll get on board. We're all sort of realizing that and then fast forward forty eight hours later and we're the ones who seem naive. It's like obviously this is what was gonNA happen because it only takes one person in the entire universe of people involved in this league. Players coaches writers referees. If anybody test positive for this virus there is going to be a shutdown and it seems ridiculous that it didn't occur to us at the time but I think it is. It does take a player. You know testing positive for us to realize the extent of this and First Sports. I think to understand that. There's nothing special about being a pro league that millions of people watch and follow and that you know where twenty thousand people will come out to games that actually puts people more at risk rather than having it be special and requiring some sort of special dispensation that sports should be exempt and I think you know for savvy as we think that we are. I think we were all kind of their even. If we didn't think we were until Wednesday night. Yeah I think that's right josh. Because you know we were talking about the hypocrisy of the Ivy League. For instance taking dramatic step of cancelling. It's a playoff tournament. It's conference tournament but allowing the to declare champions to travel to play in the NCAA's which was right. The problem was we didn't say well they shouldn't be playing the NCAA and in front of no fans in front of any fans or you know at all was the at all that we were missing Some writers were picking up on it as you know from Tuesday and Wednesday. Chris Mannix a sports illustrated had a piece talking about how the NBA and he specifically said this the NBA. If it has a patient zero they're gonNA have to shut this down and that's exactly what happened and who looks really naive now as we talk. It's every event in every league. That hasn't shut it down. You Know Major League Baseball as of right now is still deliberating what to do. Should we play in Florida or Zona? Well we'd rather play in in Major League ballparks and not in other facilities Kenny Rosenthal is reporting for the athletic on Thursday morning these decisions are all going to be taken out of these leagues hands. I mean the NHL for instance has now also been sort of Brazil right. Now we're consulting and we don't know what to do. They cancelled morning skates on Thursday but didn't take any more serious action. I mean what's really incredibly naive is to consider that forty eight hours ago. The question that was being discussed in sports was a collective action by some of the League's to bar reporters from locker rooms. So yeah right absolutely I mean the thing is you could argue that even the pro leagues were being more thoughtful about this than a lot of the college in in Sub Professional Leagues. By the time. We're done recording this podcast. Things could have changed but the XFL hasn't necessarily said that they're gonNA do Cancel Games there. There were college basketball games going on last night while the country is in full blown panic. Acc Basketball Tournament said that they were planning on still holding games today in front of you know limited limited audience and so one thing sort of occurred to me is that the people with the lease labor protections of big time. Sports is still out there playing and you get a sense for how reckless organizations of people are willing to be if they can assert their labor the Labor protections right. And I'm not you know there's no reason why the NC double a. or these colleges say. Hey look we might as well just shut things down..

"Moment means different things for different people especially if you are an Angelino for me it made me think of immediately Magic Johnson as far as how the city responded I remember it like it was yesterday I remember the disbelief and the sorrow like it was yesterday and magic did not even die but I remember at least the initial shock in life no and we didn't have social media we all had to watch it at the same time because we didn't know what he was going to announce so we all found out at the exact same time for me when when this news came across when I got your message this morning I had not seen the news yet and after talking to you this sinking feeling was in the pit of my stomach that's only reminiscent to the day that I was at the radio station the ninety two point three the beat and we got the news that Tupac had died in Vegas there a lot of lot of things that you're there LA icons there are people that have this place in our life for our lives which speak to us as we were growing up or have a disproportionate influence in our formation of our personalities in our views on life and we remember where we were I remember I was I was just sitting in shocking from my TV at home watching the Magic Johnson press conference and I didn't have a cell phone time because cell phones when the thing back in nineteen ninety one so you couldn't readily reach out to talk to people under them land lines but you couldn't get an instant of response from people the people were hurt to get in and similar instances they went down to them the form and so forth to let their emotions out and while you make mention of two pocket and Eric makes mention of Nipsey Hussle but the common thread through all of that is these are people that are near and dear to Los Angeles separately Los Angeles has a very specific relationship with people it who the M. breaks we call their own yeah and Kobe Bryant may have been born in Philadelphia raised in Italy but he was still Los Angeles is owned and that has a different level significance for people because if you call LA your home then by extension Kobe was a part of that whether you are a basketball fan or not like for example there plenty of people who are not basketball fans but they know who Kobe Bryant was yeah yeah Alicia keys started off the Grammy's tonight by saying we're in the house that Kobe built hello that's the staples center and you have thousands of people who are outside the staples center right now you have thousands of people inside the staples center right now ostensibly for the Grammys and this is something which is not awfully talked about there is a closeness and synergy I know you that no this to wallow between the music industry and the NBA they almost like partner industries in many ways yeah you have the people or the NBA they hang out with the music industry any of the music industry they hang out with the ballers and it's almost like it's the same family there's the saying rappers wanna be ballers and ballers wannabe rappers and that's funny because when I first met Kobe Bryant even outside of him playing basketball was when I was the music director at the beach wait I want you to tell us store when we come back okay you got to sit down and listen to his music yes Sir KFI am six forty o'kelly we're live everywhere on the I heart radio app Michael should pay with the news hearing today Lakers great Colby Bryant has been killed along with his thirteen year old daughter geon are when the helicopter they were in crashed in Calabasas at least seven other people were killed in that crash about ten this morning Brian and his daughter and several other people were headed to the mambo sports.

"And then I saw I was feeling good though, didn't hit me. And then and then two seconds later. I got an Email this. Which is probably that's another field. What may have how exactly you were? Both blind. See the blind C is is a deadly weapon when used the wrong way. Or when you have you guys. There was a story about an executive in Hollywood that sat highly confidential Email, and he sent by mistake to the whole staff. Right. And and that was the end of him that did him in. Yes, Email can can bring down empire. When I started hearing about the Email that was the emails that were blind CCD magic. I immediately thought of this part alleged alleged of the Magic Johnson press conference. A lot of things that went on that didn't have to go. And so I hope that after tomorrow Lincoln head in the right direction, which we are. Is really hurt us. But I enjoy working with genie side-by-side joy working Linda that was actually not at all. No, no that that does the backstabbing quote. Did he have the white? A lot of things that win. Yeah. Yeah. So there it is. There's Magic Johnson basically announcing one of the reasons he was stepping down is the the backstabbing the sneaky nece going around other people, and as it turns out as has been reported. It was rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss exchanging emails about Magic Johnson and his performance or non performance and magic was blind CC'd on those how does that happen in a multi-billion dollar corporation? I don't say I I'm telling you this a look up this this case. But it it brought down the entire president of Showtime. But it doesn't it doesn't help the fact that it brought down. Magic know what you're saying. How could it happen? It happens at the highest level of, you know, this from your court case didn't they go through all of like, your emails and their emails and everybody's Email. Yeah. But I mean that was. That was different that was actual discovery right court case, this is just rob saying logic socks. And and and he magic is CC'd. I'm not gonna get high money on this topic. Because I once sent an Email to a boss that was intended for a co worker, essentially questioning and poking fun at said, boss, I Mike I've done that on techs tat. I did on even Texas does happen. So one time somebody Senate techs, and they really wanted to come on the show. It was somebody that was promoting something really wanted to come in the show. And I knew that we would never be able to have on the show, and I was texting with my Thompson hurled bus. So I just blamed Mike Thompson for it. Right. Said I said, hey, man, you know, Mason, and I would love to have you. We think you're great. But this boss, we have Mike Thompson is not going to allow it. He's just really strength. And I sent it just to my mic texts me back. He goes. So I'm kind of a jerk and I've called him. I went there was one famous one where with us that was Greg. That was great. How did me and want you hear about this? What happened? Greg texted me. And you know, he did he just texted me. He goes, I Roland doesn't know you're mad at him. I didn't say anything to him about it. Yeah. Because John kept texting evening. Like what's going on maintenance, obviously upset with me this? I known him for thirty years. I know when he's mad, and and then I wrote back the way this obviously wasn't intended for me, which one you guys is gonna come clean and your new your next text was one four letter word that starts with F. All in capital letters. That was a dumb move. So it worked out it was better that way, it's totally possible that it happens. Right. It does again happened to me sounds like an guys all of us levels of the marquee franchise in the National Basketball Association. Wait a minute.

"If is big baller shoes causes injury. Lebron city away from the team Rondo sitting away from the team. And this surprised us. All this just proves that. We don't pre record this show. A day before the season. Magic johnson. This impromptu press copper decided I've had enough of this job. I felt for two years and decided to move on. Now, it's time to hang the banner. Oh, there goes it started with promise really this as a lot getting LeBron. They think maybe this is the turning around of this franchise, but men. Promise, but they did get an huge fight the first week of the season that maybe magic resigned they didn't want to have to be here when that banner guy. I can't say I'm unhappy to see that Lakers logo. It just feels good to have that prominence. Storied franchise up there. We've got the Lakers logo. What's next? I was going to. Are you leaning towards the Lakers before the impromptu Magic Johnson press conference, and that was just like the cherry on top of the Sunday ashtray said it sort of started in week one up and down the Ross lavar ball didn't even do all that money. Yeah. Sure. And they still hack of a bad season. Jimmy Butler was definitely played into that the fans situations definitely played into that. But I'm sick of talking about that fan in Utah. Yeah. The Lakers did a lot Jimmy Butler sort of once he got traded that kind of ended his season. Really right there the lake it just kept on producing. They're always for content content. All right. We got lots more still to come on the starting tonight. When we come back, we hit out the award for funniest moment of the year and a personal favorite of mine.

"What's right or make the best decision on the one hand. But also do the thing that she feels is right in terms of her own loyalty to the Lakers tradition and personal relationships on the other. And I think that's where she's caught right now. And that's where the franchises caught. Magic Johnson is my childhood idol. This pitcher was taking twenty six. There we go. This was taken twenty six years ago, Steven as Vic covering the league twenty five years. I'm gonna tell you guys why Magic Johnson actually stepped down. He stepped down because he wasn't able to finish the job. That's the flat out truth. He was able to deliver LeBron James, which is an iconic basketball player. But the Lakers didn't make the playoffs this year. The second part of the job was to deliver a max level free agent. This is why you let Julius Randle walk for nothing. This is why you trae MAs gos- contract, and you trade the Angelo Russell you try to during the season. Anthony Davis that blows up in your face. And now that deal won't look as good in the future. Because we don't know what Brandon Ingram future is going to hold because he has a blood clot issue. Lonzo ball has had an injury riddled season. And so therefore. If the top free agents who I'm calling the four ks Kawai k d kyri in clay if none of them are coming to the Los Angeles Lakers. The job will be incomplete because what I've been trying to tell people all season not only were they not going to compete this year. If they're not able to get one of those players, including Anthony Davis who does it control his own destiny because the pelicans will not talk to the Lakers because they felt like they tampered with him. And it felt like magic was the person that did it therefore he's not going to be able to deliver one of the toughest things to do is to coach and or manage an aging superstar. That's what LeBron James is right now, he's still going to. I gave y'all fourteen minutes. None. I don't want to take any time away from you. I just want. I wanna come to you to ask you because we agreed there. But the question is about magic blindsiding the Lakers, meaning the timing of all of this that. That's what I want to know from you. Why do you think he did it at that time? I think he did it right now. Stephen as because he sees exactly what I'm saying. Here's what happens when you're a hall of fame mogul like I'll call Magic Johnson when you're even and you're the president of the Los Angeles Lakers. We're keeping score on the team's record. How poor they shoot from three. How poor they shoot from the free throw line how they're one of the worst teams in the league as it relates to turnovers. Then you look at that roster. It'd be like, wait a minute. They sat all of these vets to one year deals, and then you look at the other side, they have all of these players that are rookie deals. None of these guys feel like they're invested in the Lakers except LeBron James because none of these guys have long term security with the situation. It doesn't of being being magic Stephen is a lot more Joe. Oh, veal people get a chance to appreciate your greatness at all of the amazing things that you've accomplished Laker fans. Want to see them win championships? They want to see them continue. And now you have LeBron going into a seventeenth year. You have magic unable to deliver the second level NBA superstar. So he now understands this is my best time. I tap out. I have another question for you. And this is a sensitive question. So I want to be very clear is a sensitive question. Rob Pelinka is a former teammate of yours at Michigan. How close are you to? Oh, we're really close. I'm close magic is world understand. And I know that and I know that I'm not trying to. I'm just saying before I say that before I say what I'm about to say I wanted to ask you that question in all fairness because I don't disagree with anything that you're saying, I just don't think that's the point a regards to the timing that all of this has gone down. And so when you take that into consideration and covering the NBA the way that you do and knowing the NBA the way that you do I personally want to put on the record. I like rob link. I have no issue with rob Belika whatsoever. He's always been cool with me. And I think he was a hell of an agent. But the what is inescapable is that everywhere you turn this guy. Whether it's other agents or executive, and, you know, this Jalen is incredibly this light by some of those people. And then when you hear that behind the scenes that he magic because. Magic. According according to my sources until a few weeks ago magic politica will find absolutely fine. And then all of a sudden magic became aware that things were going on behind the scenes that he didn't like, and he thought some of it was coming from rob rob, obviously in defensive himself was absolutely right to come to the defense because you've got people are jealous and envious of his accomplishments and could be lying, rob Belika. But the reality is that it got to magic. And so magic yesterday during a press conference ask Ramona Shelburne as well as the row ski as they mcmenamin ask as Brian winters ask any report as anybody that was in the building last night listening to Magic Johnson's press conference. And when he was asked about rob Pelinka. It wasn't. It wasn't pleasant. It wasn't. He teen is about Jeannie and the affection was for Judy. There was no love for rob. Did you know? Support. I'm sorry. Max, what did you say? Where does where does Pelinka's where does Pelinka support come from from g correct? And why does sports Pelinka isn't a Kobe Bryant. Yes. Correct. But I'm asking you Jalen, what I just say what's your response to all of that. So a few things they were operating in tandem, Stephen A, you can't necessarily exclude when Magic Johnson is on Jimmy Kimmel, and he's talking about Paul George. You can't blame that on rob Pelinka signed for tampering. Of course, when there was time to do a deal with the pelicans as it related to try to acquire Anthony Davis, the things that he said, not rob Pelinka made the team feel like he was tampering with their player, which may them not want to deal with the Lakers at all. And if you notice the pelicans GM dill dips lost his job in theory. Magic Johnson stepping down from his job because. Both of those franchises went in flux when that deal became public, and it didn't get done. Do you think Magic Johnson has trip with Dacian of fire and a coach like this dude is a billionaire? He's a conglomerate he makes changes all of the time. It's not that he's afraid to do it. Stephen would it is. It's he understands what I've been trying to tell you, which is why you only a pair of designer shoes. This Laker situation is we anticipate that they're going to be a contender. But the reality of it is they need to build that. Lebron James doesn't wanna hear words like process he's going into a seventeen year and in order for this squat to be one of the best tease in the Western Conference. It's going to take a couple of years because I don't believe they're going to get one of the top tier free ages this off season. Jalen, Jalen, rose that was really really slick, and you can give lessons all be as slick, and that's a compliment you. The other side of the pillow. But that's not fly with me, bro. The fact of the matter is this all of this stuff that you just say, I don't refu- in terms of what has happened to the Lakers or whatever. And yes, I do oh you're pissed Necas because I thought Lakers will go onto the conference finals, and they will feed at the time. The LeBron got hurt. But you talk about Denver, and you deserve prophet. So I'll give you just because it's not an issue. But that wasn't my question broke. My question to you is about your former teammate who's now the general manager of the Lakers who clearly in the end magic did not appear to have much love for. I need you to answer that question because all the stuff that you said is right, but it's a relevant to the point that I'm getting too. And that is the friction that existed of his peers. I don't know if for fac, but it clearly appeared to be the case with every reporter that was there yesterday when it came to rob Pelinka could you answer that question. Yes, sir. I like to gauge success off a realistic expectations. And Magic Johnson at rob Pelinka Stephen were working in tandem in order to try to make the Los Angeles Lakers contending team when that doesn't happen relationship. Splinter when you don't make your goals, and it was certain just like being on a losing team a winning team with somebody makes a mistake my bad. I'll soccer Feis and do better job on a losing team. Every step body starts to point fingers. See why a at that point. And so I understand what you're saying about some of the reports that came out about Magic's work ethic about the fact that he has so many interests that he wasn't at the job every day consistently. He was never going to beat a guy that was going to be scout in high school and college players, you know. Twenty four seven three sixty five because he's more of an ambassador that's holding the role of president. Which is why you bring in raw to actually do the day to day functioning with it done type of work. Max, Jalen, that's why it that's why the hiring of Pelinka raised my eyebrows. In the first place. Magic Johnson as you say he's the face. He's the embassador. He's not going to do the detail work. Everyone knows that off the bet the question is who do they bring in? And when they brought in Kobe's guy, I thought her Pelinka and he's not he's not a GM. He's not an experienced executive on that side. He's a seller. He's not a buyer. That's very strange that seems like competing forces magic on the one hand Kobe on the other. I think Koby has a real place in this story so to speak, but I want to get back to magic Stephen A because it's your defending him in certain ways by bringing up Pelinka. And I agree with you about that. But I will see this about the way magic went about this announcement on the day Dirk and Wade retired right before the last Lakers game the way he walked away. It's his no moss moment like Roberto Durant, saying no, MAs to Jalen point. And I don't think he'll ever live it down. Magic johnson. Lakers fans were always loved him. But this is a day that will go down in the story of Magic Johnson. Like Roberto Durant saying no MAs against. Just dropped the grandma, and that's what that. What I want Stephen eight to respond to that. After the break is we have plenty more on this. We're just getting started. That was riveting television. If I do say, so myself. The dilatot we fly to three hundred cities around the world. That's three hundred cities where everyone does the same things you do that's three hundred cities where people think they're the only ones who know about that one place three hundred cities where people missed someone in one of our other two hundred ninety nine cities three hundred cities where people sing in the car or the shower or both. Hooley? Delta isn't flying to three hundred cities merely to bring us together to show us. We're not that far apart of first place. Delta keep climbing. This

"Five games. He saw that. I thought I saw that. Should we buy cap a clearance to Parker jersey? I think I'll throw any of you guys. How much are though? That's awesome. Who's up Waddell Europe? Listen, I thought the af is I thought it was a very successful start. I think the television ratings were good, right? They did for the Saturday night. The one bad thing is is. And I think we've talked about this in the past is having a an af franchise in a city that also has an NFL franchise isn't going to go well for attendance, and they showed what field was it maller. You are a F shots. Whatever that was there looked like there was friends and family in the building. And listen, I don't think it should detract from what they're trying to accomplish. But I don't think that that is a really wise decision going forward having one of these teams in an NFL city as well. Because your attendance isn't going to be great. It was bad. It was a bad. Look, my bad was Magic Johnson's press conference. And there were multiple bads from it. Where was he doing the actual press conference in Philly with was he with the Lakers? But anyway, he was asked the question where the pelicans negotiating in good faith, and his response was. No, they weren't. And like, I what what do the pelicans? Oh them. Oh them to negotiate. What what's his good faith Jimmy through this around a lot with the timber wolves? The timber wolves weren't trying to trade him in good faith, when you're a player in you sign a deal to deal with a certain team in you're under contract. And this coming from a guy who likes the players have added power. I'm good with it. The players should have the power. They're the ones with the amazing ability, but he signed the contract extension with New Orleans. He created his own dad. I don't understand if you're Rich Paul AD or Magic Johnson. What the pelicans? Oh, you they owe to their franchise. It's their decision. Now, you don't get to dictate who they negotiate when they negotiate how they negotiate it's on them both sides exercising there. Lower than the other side having a problem with that side exercising said power. I mean, you'll be a free agent, and you can lead them in a year. Right. If they don't work out a deal on the opposite. But I don't know what they oh, you why you why they have to trade you now at all costs, and I tried to do exercises power fine. I understand why pelicans responded in the way, they did fine. Everybody's using their power. I'm with you. I I don't I don't know where the beef is maller. You're bad. My band. Goes to the af because after their opening weekend. Yeah. Af after their opening weekends. You couldn't find a box scored even when you're hunting down all weekend long, so bad on them for not making their box scores more widely available like I know, they don't they? There's there's scores, but there's no box. You know, why he doesn't like he's shut your mind. No, he's trying to find a way to become a fantasy expert. The rest of us. We all saw Richardson score two touchdowns of call. But how am I supposed to know that you you rushed for fifty three yards on twenty seven carries? If I don't have a box score to confirm. On them. You got to have box scores. Make sense of dollar too bad, my bad, Saturday night, guys the Celtics blowing twenty one point lead to the clippers. They only score twelve in the third quarter. Marcus Morris has to come out and say, they're the least fun team in the NBA. None of the guys like to hang out with each other. Like, it's just a bad for a team that everybody thinks might be a legit contender in the east. I if all this stuff is true. That's coming out of Boston. Kyrie is out. There is number five seed now Boston. Yeah. For five. See I said. Yeah. Some of the Celtics were talking. I saw. Yeah. I mean, some of the things he was saying I was surprised by my journey is two words Christian hackenberg..
