"Sports on peacock in this rich eisen show. Radio network terrestrial satellite and streaming. Police have back here. One of my favorite people. That i'm so thrilled to be able to call a friend. And for the first time on this program a hall of famer physcially from espn and their nba coverage and the terrific. Pardon the interruption. Our friend michael wilbon. How are you sir rich. I'm pretty good. How are you doing. I'm hanging in there so There's so much going on my gosh. I'm just going to dive right into it if you don't mind Did you see what scottie pippen had to say on our friend Dp show today. I just i just saw a luckily thank you for you. I i was. I was starting a sleep marathon last night when i got back from From clippers sons and that that was that was going to mean about fifteen hours up on days without it. And so i saw nothing on my own. Thankfully your producer sent me this I say thankfully so. I can be aware and i just looked at it and shook my head and i you know i don't i don't know i know i. I start to scotty occasionally And sometimes like during previous seasons. It'd be more than occasionally because we would work together on rachel show on the job and and No scotty for a long. Long time. I i. i don't have any extra knowledge. I have no special intel on this. I looked at it and went. What like probably most people did so. I'm just. I'm just catching up. And then we're all going to have to react to it and to whatever comes from it the reactions to the reactions but Yeah i'm just. I'm just now seeing know half an hour stoke. So what were your boots. On the ground recollection of the ku coach and pippen moment back in the day We'll look at it was it was it was as dramatic as as nba can get I was at the game And immediately i didn't know. I didn't realize this guy who was on the court coming out of that time out and then you look look looking. You're wondering what's going on and all flash But and there was you know there was no social media of course to just dissect it over and over and over again a million times in the next you know forty eight hours and it was. It was it. Was you know scottie's low moment and it's certainly a moment that i know he hated having to relive during the last dance I did you know communicate with him. After that. And i you know. I was one of those people who is critical. You know how could you. How could you not be. I also think that the moment. Unfortunately and i talked to scott that that that game that moment You know it. Colour him for a long time. And i thought i came to rich that it. It couldn't be the only thing that that made us think a certain way about skipping because he did win six in one he didn't want to he wants six and michael never one without him and he went on to play for team that should have been in the nba finals. You know the portland trailblazers. Nineteen point lead in the fourth quarter of a game. Seven against the lakers. Kobe and shaq and i don't know how that winning and getting to the finals. It's interesting how that might have changed further the narrative but i thought we were away from this. I thought i thought we were away from this. I said written public scotty. I'm not gonna solely judge you. By worst moment. None of us wants to be judged that way and his career has too much else in it. The resumes to full. And you know now. I hear this. I don't i. Don't i don't know what to think you michael wilbon here on the rich eisen show Just for you know. completion for the moment Pippen has just tweeted out. I'm just answering the questions. Y'all asking me you wanted the headlines you got them dig deeper to find out. Why actually said what i said. Instead of framing your questions to get clicks it's all love as with a heart emoji What do you think that means to find out i do. He's winning. I learned not to do rich Put too much into answers that come via social media. There's not discussion is social media. I don't know what it means. I can't. I can't tell you what it means. I can react to. Who i think phil jackson is and was in in my experience and i did not. I would not around fill every day. The people who the people who i will listen to on this will be And what they say are the people who played fulfil and one with him. So you know. I i know those men Obviously starting with michael jordan will be asked. I don't know how he will weigh in on so many others ron harper. Who i know. I wanna hear what ron harper i wanna hear would be armstrong has to say i wanna hear what steve kerr you know. Tony coup coach I i you know have been on a golf course a few times or sony which is a five hour. Fun fast i i. I would love to have four hours or five hours of access to tony today. so i i'm not gonna i don't i'm too old and too not of the generation to spend hours even minutes trying to figure out what people are saying with emojis and you know just secret phrases. That are not meant for me for my thirteen year. Old son i mike and mike. I can't do that. But but i want. I want to hear in in order to to get. Because you're gonna have to but it won't. I don't know what love means. I mean a everybody others these phrases these days using means nothing and you have to beneath it is asking. The question is is going to be asking the questions with scotty. Men who are on that team right. And so i guess the last one for you on this subject before we go to the here now. And micheal. wilpon is what what what. What can you tell me about the pippen jordan relationship. Because it's clearly something that pip pip and also said to dan that the the nba Entertainment cameras that picked up the huddle in which michael was seeming to be absolutely fine as well as be at the forefront of setting up for winning shot that we all know in the last dance about Was a setup. It was jordan knowing that the cameras were there and then he would control it for documentary. And i just seems to be a lot of calm a lot of confusing statements what it was all. They have a complex for the. They've had a complex relationship. I don't think any we. We saw that in the documentary. Which explains it much more than any. You know individuals statements. Well we saw that and and you know there was a time when they didn't i you know i don't know that it was ever in my view hostile. It was just. They are very different. People had a complex relationship. Which michael we know from the last dance. Just scottie pippen. But we know. Steve kerr you know we. We know those stories now And i i believe. I know that some of the reliving that i got i got i know Did it hurt him. To re reliving of these moments that her in the beginning i if if they were conflicts her thirty years ago then we know what they must feel like thirty years later They were never the best of friends. I mean there are people on the team. Michael was closer to bj armstrong. I'm there with people on the team that you know the irony of scotty and coup coach and they're hoping in the olympics. The dream team is got that toni kukoc and he became very close And you know when you mentioned scotty to throw. Only he was called a pip. And he'd have a smile on his face and scotty became very much as big brother. is is i interpreted from both of them So but these things are not. They're not gonna change right the relationships that you can't undo the relationships. You can't redo the relations mulligan you know Pun intended on these relationships. They were conflicts a year ago. Would we finish watching the last dance right about now. Maybe a month earlier price and So this is what it is and there was less examination of fill and the guys i mean mike has told me. Get to fill for a second He told me that the three most important in life and quoted him somewhere doing this washington post In live tommy. The three most important in his life were his father. Dean smith and phil jackson And in the context. I'd have to go back and get the context. I don't know petankis was well. Tv basketball because his dad right the headliner and obviously we know that that comes with no secret So that relationship. Maybe it was left conflict. I don't i don't i don't know that all of us know maybe chicago beat riders. Know a ton about phil's relationship with scotty other than one point eight seconds. Maybe michael von here on the rich eisen show. Pardon the interruption and of course the nba coverage that were were locked into With it appearing to be. Michael is it fair to say where we got sons bucks on the horizon.

I've met him a couple times because I used to cover locker room and sports and all that stuff so you'd run into him in the media rooms, and this is a guy that thinks he's a member of the Beatles. He thinks his stuff doesn't stink. And I remember when Andrew Luck retired. Abruptly. You were at that game, Nagy and this is what they had to say. Michael Wilbon had to say that next Monday on Petey, I I'm gonna root for them to lose every game. They play. So my wonderful fans there now to be miserable for years.

"Michael Wilbon joins us right now, Michael, How you feeling today, you know, relatively relative to the world. I got some pretty pretty good back in D. C. After 100 days in Arizona, back in DC starts off in Chicago for a day. So You know these? These three places were dramatically different in terms of the way they felt when you were moving about them and moved on Chicago that much, but Back in the nation's capital, which is a very different place in Chicago in a very different place in Arizona, for the guy asked, you know, 34 weeks, you know, I don't think you could describe any of it's good. Just like very different. What did Arizona feel like? When you left? They reported today they had around like 20% positivity rate as Faras. They're testing goes, so there's like one in You know, Almost every four people were testing positive for when you left was the feeling like his things were starting to close down again. They weren't They weren't closing down again. When I left, not a bar's closed down and I'll go to bars. So that didn't have any special field for me. Gym's closed down as well, although some of them had pushed back So there's a little more combative, you know, atmosphere in Arizona when it comes to what people want to do are willing to do so much. I don't know what percentage and I talked to a couple of Friends who are doctors, and one is in emergency medicine. You know, Specialist of the highest order in Arizona. And you know so many of those positive tests are coming out of You know the sort of the party district if you will, a part of the part of old town where young people go on. Just basically say, Yeah, right. I'm done with this. So I don't have anywhere near that. So so, Michael, when we talk to you in August, the first week of August you believe we're going to be talking about Oh, the N ba plans and baseball or do you think that's gonna work? I don't know. I'm still I mean, you know, I know you try to Sylvia. You try to get me me here and you say you hearing me say? I don't know. I don't know. I mean, if the commissioner Of the sport, basketball says. You know, we're not going to do anything that flies in the face of the advice. We're getting. The council were getting my experts. That means he doesn't know that's a very sophisticated It's a smart way of saying we don't know. I think I think I think last week you guys asked me what my confidence level was. Maybe we just talked about Petey. I said a six or seven that we would get to it. Which means you started. I think of seven is a solid way of saying I'm reasonably confident anything. Adam Silver used the words reasonably confident yesterday. In that time, 100 things how they really confident in seven that is going to start to finish. What I think it's going to start. I think the MBA playoffs are going to happen. To what degree? I don't know. Without how many players I don't know. You know, we've got science is telling us that who were projecting at one point it sounded crazy. Having motive was putting that one out of 300 million Americans. We're gonna wind up testing positive or or If they don't test positive, having had 100 million out of Dimension. Lena's one out of three When you say 28% and whatever survey that was in Arizona is like OK. That's where we're going, right? And people don't want to accept that. It's sort of the delusional morons who come up with all your past. That is over now, and I don't have any respect for that for them, and I don't listen to them. And this has got a long way to go. And suppose, is no different sports is just a subset of the culture. So why wouldn't I would see this? College football. We keep going back to how they're gonna play. How is college football going to be staged? When there's no attempted bubble. And kids who when they test positive or not, They gotta go to class of people if they're not going to be in class in his pro sports I'm gonna have to be in class, but that's not going to be tolerated. Whether my parents and I don't know how many of you saw the Washington Post piece that featured Chris, hidden former Northwestern All American and my friend and client schoolmate in our classmate. He and his wife are heavily involved. Assuming they've got one son going to Stanford. I forget where the other son is. Then. You know? How did you stage these seasons? College football? I don't know that they're preparing for. I know the games going on after I came early to see people talking about matchups in big games, and it's one of they shut up. What do you talking about? We don't know if these seasons are going to be staged. The beginning of them. So there's a lot that we just don't know. And I hate when people say we don't know why I am people say what people people fail to say. We don't know. We saw that you know that the N B A is going to be in a bubble. Buster only said this weekend that he believes that there is a 5% chance that the baseball season starts 0% chance that it finishes. Really, he said. 5%. It'd start 5% that started this would play well, but I want you to hear this and I want reaction to this. Just he did tell us that Buster's usually a pessimist on everything so okay, but he was with Dori and Mel this weekend. How confident are you that this season gets finished? 0%? Absolutely. 0%. Based on what I'm hearing. How confident are you that this season gets started with actual games? I would put that at 5%. I think that they're going to atleast try in the next couple weeks, But I Especially in the face of these, you know, spiking numbers. It wouldn't surprise me if Darryl's quickly That's surprising. Isn't it like some reaction is surprising. It is just a Wow. It just hits you in the gut told me not to jump. No, but give people some idea because people don't read anymore. They don't consume news information. They could find it on Instagram Filson. People in only picks up the phone every day of his life. And he calls people and he listens to them is that it's hot. Take He listens to expert. He is listening to scientists and medical experts. Trust me. I know the kind of work Buster does used to some of that work, some of it And I don't hate myself with him for the three years of the Washington Post, you picked up the phone or one is not a time of a pandemic. You walk into somebody's office. You close the door, you say eye level with me. After both their only does so he he didn't wake up and have a hot take people. He's got people on the phone, who are who are in infectious disease, an emergency medicine and in all kinds of science, and he is talking to them and the lease is this is what I'm being told He's not talking about being told by Instagram. I mean, you know, sometimes it disappears. It means our culture. We We are dumber than ever. But there are some people who don't give in to that and buster all he's one of them. So when he says this I'm not saying he's going to be. He's gonna take this Vegas. I'm not gonna take it to Vegas for Buster says this. I'm trusting that he is being informed of people he trusts And wow, that just I mean, more than surprising is scary as hell. What do you think the threshold is then? As like a society for us to have baseball, You know how many players need to get settled? Doesn't.

"At last we heard Michael Jordan say that from the outset of the nineteen ninety seven ninety eight season it was their last chance Phil Jackson he said could have gone any joint in the regular season and still would not have been back throughout the last dance we were reminded of Jordan's competitiveness and as we watch the end of a ten hour documentary about a team a franchise that just won six titles in an eight year span Michael Jordan was upset he did have a chance to go for a seventh the bulls were broken up the rebuilding began after that nineteen ninety eight championship could they have had one more in the could they have kept the team together if they tried ESPN's Michael Wilbon Jackie MacMullan I would bet on Scotty Michael and Phil Jackson anytime anywhere let's start with that but here's the problem Phil and Jerry Krause Scott their relationship was untenable by that point so there was no way Phil was going to come back if you don't have still come back then who's going to control Dennis robin even

"More discussion this morning. Of course about the last dance the legacy of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams of the nineteen nineties and whether or not the way Jordan governed that group demanded of them held them accountable. Some might say bullied them was fair. Michael Wilbon who covered Jordan Bulls and knows Jordan about as well as anyone in the media. This side of a moderate shod. Join Max Steven A. And discussed the question was Michael Jordan. Too tough on his teammates. What were your thoughts when you heard. What Charles Barkley had to say about Michael Jordan In regards to his treatment of his teammates. Well look everybody's gotTa take on. Michael and how? Ruffy was teammates. Select Selective Prosecution. Was the words he used select. Prosecution said look everybody had a different leadership style. Reason part of the reason for this documentary reasoning exists is because Michael decided okay. I'm going to be able to sort of control the conversation in terms of why I did what I did and how I did it. I it comes out and says hey you know you've had this conversation with them. He wasn't trying to adopt anybody else's leadership style. He was going to do this his way. And when it worked then you had to. You heard him during. I thought the most effective part of the last dance department made me reach for a notebook and put my reporter hat back on his when Michael Said you know. Winning has a price. And if you don't want to buy into the mentality. I am using here. Get out it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be hell for you. I think was the phrase. And so you see all those teams that you see will produc- Winnington and those guys say at the time that we did it. Seem like he crossed the line. Yes as went on. Did we think he was a great teammate? Yes this is not look you can have whatever take you. WanNa have on it and I understand Charleston's take because it was different but nobody else in their time as much I mean magic and Kareem on the way in but it worked and so I even sit. There does interesting mom watching in real time I have not. I did not watch all the episodes of advanced like most people in our business. I wanted to watch in real time with my son. Who's a twelve year old basketball player and his eyes so big? When Michael says certain things to his teammates we are watching the unedited version The watch the PG rated version of the DEUCE and he's like. Wow Dad he has to do that with his teammates. And I'm like I don't know if he had to but it worked they won and that's the bottom line right. There is the quote that tells you at all they won in Jordan's way worked. Max made a great point during the you know there was no Celtics Lakers rivalry. There wasn't because Jordan he was Roy Jones. He was so good. There were no equals. No rivals

"Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon one pardon the interruption talking about the reaction in some of their thoughts coming from around the league I don't have that sentiment Tony of agreeing or disagreeing I like hearing Ballenger just go on a straight you know yeah and it yeah his feelings I think that's pretty cool I'm just not as you know I have my problems with this being made as big a deal as it is in the and it wasn't nearly as big a deal what I object to it as it is now it's like a hundred times bigger now it's only you great I mean I don't I don't care as much about talking with Jen was we're for somebody talks reliving I don't care about their talking I want to see them play and so I want to see what the reaction is all on the diamond right the Houston Astros starting day what what I care about I understand what Ballenger feels how he feels about this he thinks his team got robbed I don't know that wholesale to they stole the MVP from our judge what is what I do now when used in place the Dodgers Ballenger's going on his back I guarantee you that I don't do that Houston pitchers are going to remember what everybody said about them and a lot of people are going down I find this very interesting that so many players are angry at the Houston Astros in they say these are not sincere apologies and yet with the Washington nationals Sean Doolittle has reached out the will Harris who was on this team in Houston and I was told with a sincere apology because your teammates now and that's how it works my when your teammates everything is good and I don't understand still what do you want now what what do they have to do what do you want to know why they're going to give the trophy in the ring tone how about back in the old days when they were both in the NL west how would that work down there would have played each other a whole bunch of some million coming as water would have been that's right straight talk wireless everything for less only at Walmart now keep in mind the Dodgers don't play the Astros during the regular season it would have to be another World Series match up or may be if you get the right combination at the all star game this July at Dodger Stadium I'm sure the astro all star representatives are going to feel all too welcomed by the Dodger Stadium crowd he did I say all stars well why are you did and that's where we are in the midst of the NBA all star celebration weekend in Chicago the Friday night festivities beginning with the rising stars game first year guys in soft wars going up and down the floor basketball free form with more back and forth in a federal Nadal tennis match.
NFL explains why there was no pass interference called on play that eliminated Saints
"We're going to. We're going to make football show because that's what people like over the weekend. Everybody who listens to this show presumably watched all of the football games or most of all of the football guess. He missed the playoffs playoff in Hawaii. The yes I missed that one Justin Thomas I saw this morning. I thought it was really nice but I missed it last last night because it came on pretty late We're going to do you because the ratings of the NFL up all across the board because the interest in the NFL is up all across the board and because each of those those games was quite interesting in its own way including terrible terrible. Coaching decisions by both coaches in the Houston Buffalo Game. We're going to talk about out this for an extended period of time in the first segment. Michael Wilbon will join us in second segment. We're GONNA limit news and go right to old guy where we're going to talk about the Golden Globes and the matchups for next week. That's what we're going to the show probably the same length. But I WANNA do it if you don't mind I WANNA do it that way also. WanNa thank Clarendon Tola for Baking Cooke's for Claire Gary Braun Chris Cillizza Michael Kornheiser Nigel. Who has nothing to do except for on the boards because we're not sleep keeps pressing one button? So He's been news cancelled forever now just today. If you don't mind especially the best thing is not gonNa work out just I you know I'm old and I thought why not like Michael said to me last night we were talking about the possibility of of Michael. Are you shaking your head. You don't want me to. Would you go ahead down the fourth wall. People talking about Mike Lees. I won't share this on air dead. Yeah go ahead Michael Says Cillizza how how do we get rid of him. Nicely to the change in the show today. I let's start. Let's start with yesterday's which is going to go backwards. I'm just can start with the Minnesota game because of all the games the end result of that game is the most surprises so like I said on the PTI show on Friday. I'll take Tennessee. Plus Five Live and a half all day and all night doesn't mean I think they're gonNA win. I'm GONNA take those points New Orleans. Losing at home in overtime to Minnesota is stunning drew. BREES did not have a great game he had a very bad fumble in drive. That could have changed in the fourth quarter changed. Everything around. He got picked never gets picked. I mean he did not have a great game. There are three quarterbacks forty years old and up over the weekend and they all lost. We'll get to that but even with brees not having a great game. They tied the game. They got into overtime there at home and they yielded the first drive. That's it see around. see you around Kirk cousins who. I am extraordinarily critical of on a regular basis was very good and kirk cousins to Adam Adam field and had to make up for fumble early. You know but I don't feel did that pass. That wins the game. Now there's a third downplay because what you don't want to do is have to kick a field goal because because you don't want to give New Orleans the ball on the one. Yeah you don't WanNa do that. On the third downplay they go in the left. Hand top corner of the end zone to Kyle Rudolph is about twelve aid aide just like that and by the way quickly give cousins credit. That was a terrible snap. The snap his way to his right he basically knocks it with his right hand. Quickly gathers it because you it's all timing and throws a faith throws the fate and Rudolf reaches up. He's much taller than defender and he gets it in the process of doing that he pushes off. There's no question he pushes off. Does it rise to the level of offensive pass interference for me in a playoff game and I have to give context here. New Orleans has tragically lost in Hoon's replay off games in a row cheated in one cheated by by their own stupidity in another with defensive back and I mean I honestly either call offense a pass. Interference would have so I did not I mean I I watched the play. Did Not in real time necessarily see the wrangle back is in front of your Reina Vision Right. So they call it a touchdown a apparently appropriately to me and then you see the replay and and I did think to myself. Like oh my goodness could they. Could they possibly possibly overturn this. I mean it. And we've all seen their explanation and said there was handed both sides. It didn't rise to level pass interference. I mean I'm sorry by no objective measure to me was that not pass interference and in fact is in fact a couple hours later they called the same thing on hollister tight end from. I'm from Seattle and on much less meaningful circumstance but I mean I just felt like the league. We're getting out of the way this one. I mean there's no way every time it's the UNCANNY situational right. We know this. It's like it's like a Games are raft. Basketball game is reverend different right. The game is rough differently in the last thirty seconds than it it is and that's situationally you cannot. I don't think when I watched it and I watched the replay. He pushed off a little bit. Did it it was. It did not to me anyway. I think I disagree with you. Guys did not to me look agree. Gis I think Rudolph was bigger. The defensive back had his back this business. Being that push back. Chris Locate fully extends. I think it was his left arm. Yeah if he is allowed to do that he catches that ball. A hundred injured time. He cannot be defended. Unless you play. Just there's so many calls they show throughout the game when they every time on a pass Where not every time? Seventy percent of the time on a pattern when they show the slow motion the other guy. The the DB is has his arm wrapped around around the guy's waist or is holding. His arm gets there. I just think it's very subjective. That's fine but I agree with that but I would also agree that the saints should not be shafted million better cost the saints again. Plenty of opportunities it. Certainly when you were watching the game I ah in the flow of it and when tased him hill like in three straight plays a three-stroke they score a touchdown. Now it's twenty seventeen right gary to have that right was twenty. I needed to twenty twenty twenty seven hundred twenty and then they get back they get it back and take some hill like three times. Basically the the one where he runs to the left where it looks like. He's tackled and he spins runs for thirty arts. Well they're definitely going to win then. And then brees fumbled. I mean it was very i. I lost fumbling. The ball get hit. No sort of this is arm gets hit a little bit. I'm sorry I'm busy trying to reconstruct your show on the fly without telling you so allowed back in so so tension is good for the show is for Knuckleballer To to to tie it up. What was the forty nine yard or from lots? They're kicking it through. Yeah man that went about now three feet off the ground and easier kick at the end of the first half a ball Games kick forty something already three but that's an easier kick so that game. Let me say one other thing about that game as someone who was a kirk cousins fan when he was here. I'm not going to criticize Kirk. Cousins played fine. He was he was great in that last. Drive the drive. If they lose the haters are going to look at that stat line that would have been seventeen of twenty nine hundred and ninety yards picked and he didn't do anything bad. Oh he had a good game and the pass was just

I'm emotional the same way that Stephen is emotional when defending his friend Magic Johnson. And when he defends him he does not sound objective. He sounds emotional, so that story comes out from Baxter homes on ESPN dot com. He's ever met Johnston, and it torches all of the Lakers. And magic is given the platform by Steven A again to go after the Lakers are caused more of a mass blame. More people cut. Dotson. And Stephen a Smith varies zealously defended Magic Johnson from that story. Cut governmental Johnson now Henry Abbott at true hoop is saying the following Henry Abbott. Also a very good journalist new age journalist, and this is what he writes on Twitter, telling the truth is difficult. Painstaking often thankless work. Not everyone has the stomach for it. I think ESPN faces tough choices about, whether it wants to nurture evidence based, reporting, or tear it down and so evidence based reporting is what Baxter homes reported for ESPN dot com. Where it was on the ground talking to dozens of sources pointing out that the Lakers have had an alarming amount of executives leave talking to people in a way that exhaustively reported. And then Stephen a Henry avid saying a went on the air and toward. Down that evidence based reported. Magic Johnson tyrannical as the boss. That's basically what pitching trying to pay.

And now they look and projecting that onto it was one of those four or five. Mike. It's good to visit with you. Glad to see you're putting in a little extra work than just a half hour on pardon eruption and don't be afraid to mail it in this year, so we can win next. I mean give us a chance my ill. I just thought about the question you asked me earlier this quickly to about, you know, our high said, who influenced us, and who said, hey, stopped being your head and just thinking about writing a column and do the show even we're one of. I know you were one of them. The Dan Patrick is and his own the absence of another one on the mantle is if you need one you and I talked back then in in, you, I remember said are you crazy right way with mine, do my so, so we won the EMMY last night? We won the EMMY I'll, I'll put your name on it like the Stanley Cup doing so with that. I'm Mike, thank you. I appreciate that. All of a sudden, all of a sudden the day got a little brighter. Thank you again. Congratulations. I'm sure it made Mr Tony almost smile almost Dan, almost they that. Thank you. Mike. Michael wilbon. I remember I can tell you where I was at ESPN when Tony Kornheiser. Michael wilbon came in and they were just discussing starting part in the interruption and Chris Berman's office was in the corner of the second floor, and I remember well, okay, you go in first four second floor third floor, so. Above the newsroom, Berman's office Kornheiser. It makes the left with John Walsh from sports center. And all of a sudden, Tony goes, I have no idea while I'm here they want us to do a show. How crazy are they are they drunk and I said, you and wilpon just talking sports. We'll be great. And he goes, I do not see it, and he was so anti TV because, you know, Tony probably thought you know, he called all of his talking hairdos talking heads. And now you'd be you'd become a talking head and not a talking hairdo. We didn't have hair, but he was a talking head. And I think he was very nervous. There was trepidation about becoming one of us. But what him what he and Mike did is far surpassed. I think what Keith and I did on sportscenter, you know, we, we did something different what they do every single day, and they become the last word on sports. When you think about a show on the east coast that starts at five thirty and that becomes the final word that day in sports. And this is something that ESPN has acknowledged to me that they're trying to change just so people are still watching the SPN and sportscenter because there is another final word in that might be Scott van pelt show. But at five thirty so to thirty west coast time that could be the final word on sports because Mike and Tony said it that's really a powerful powerful brand and sustainability there. I don't know what happens when Tony decides to not do it anymore. Or if they both decide at the same time, you know, they Bella check in Brady they haven't had any controversy. Well Tony got suspended. I think one time but I don't I don't know if there's any real controversy there when he didn't he just talk about Hannah storms outfit or something. And he they sat him down for a little while. It's been a few. Yeah, it was just about our boots. I. But Mr Tony got sat down and but that's their that's their only controversy. There was no spy gate or anything like that. I don't think I don't know stuff may come out. Maybe we do a little deeper dive there. Maybe we find out the outside the lines get investigate them and then they would have one. Yeah. And then. Oh, yeah. Then outside the lines would win. They would work on vest investigation.

I said your second duties be fired, because this is not sound phallic sound thinking to me. And that's how I heard that Kornheiser almost didn't do it. When either one of both was almost didn't do it. I remember one day I was much closer to not doing it than Tony. Okay. All these all these stories tend to revolve around Tony because it's sexier and needs to more eccentric. But I, I was a place Tony being ten years older, he'd written the column, you done all that. He did it for a long time. He was he didn't want to didn't want to travel and go to games. And do the thing that columnists need to do back then, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and or I'm sorry, late twentieth early twenty first. So he he didn't wanna do that stuff. And I did. And so I don't wanna be in a studio every day, not going to games. And here I am in Toronto as we as we speak still do that, that was an assistance on my Bobby, but then we walked into a studio or newsroom, and there were people, there would move from Bristol and moved from places like why are you people here? And they said, well, we did a television show. We tend to start on, like Tober tenth, and we're like seriously. We haven't signed. Anything and he's one of had, and we were not pressed to do it. I don't want to sound ungrateful because again, I'm grateful, but we, you know, I had the dream job of my life back, then being accomplished for the Washington Post. And so that Tony, and so we were not, you know, moved that we had to do this immediately. And there were people that our lives who said, thankfully, shut up, and listen, this is going to be different Charles Joe's bar things, one of them, and they were sitting with Charles and he said, are you crazy? You know, you gotta do this. You guys get this is gonna be good. It's gonna matter. And there were people like that in both of our lives. And so we, we said, okay, maybe it's time to listen and shut up. Michael wilbon, pardon the interruption and in Toronto game four coming up tonight with the bucks and those rafters of the warriors ability to come back here and do it in four games. You don't have boogie. You don't have ego dolla, and you don't have Kevin Durant. That's pretty impressive to do it. And beat a good Portland team and do it, I think in three of the four games Mike. They were down by at least fifteen points. What do you make of this run by the warriors in, you know, I, I think it's an all time great run. I think it measures up to anything by saying, and I'm too young to see the end of the Russell, Celtics, very in remember the last championship, but not much more than that. But obviously we know the history of it and. Then, and obviously we're talking more teams more resources, you know, not every team as a pigeon waiting to be taken advantage of I read our back. But I mean the point we are now in a culture sport for the warriors to do this with all of their assets available is just stunning and to do it without Kevin Durant. And you can say okay, without believe cousins, too, but it's about Durant, man. And I understand they haven't beaten a great team yet in this run. But, you know, the Celtics didn't always be great teams in Russell's run every time they usually the be one at the end of often will Chamberlain on it. Whether it was a conference final final so men. I mean the reminded how great Steph curry is. I don't know why we needed to be reminded. We did most people did. And I was at the Houston series..

"First playoff game win multiple overtimes in franchise history. They had seventeen three pointers most in a game in franchise postseason history. Collide Leonard fourth player over the last twenty postseasons with eight thirty point games in a ten game span. Janas Kumho for Milwaukee in the loss points on five of sixteen shooting. He fouled out on a playoff game for the second time in his career are Michael wilbon was there. Dominic give most the credits Ronald's defense knickknacks talked before the game having to come up with something different. They did not radically. But there were tough double teams you heard Yana speak to that. Yes. Litter is going to get the lion's share. The credit. And he's because he's been a great defender for a long time. But it wasn't just collide later. There was a second person there, every time Yanna spun, and he loves us spin back to the middle. There was another guy there resulting in eight turnovers. Five baskets for Jaanus tonight. And that's a winning formula for Toronto. Even if it takes two overtimes in, you know, the bucks had to really be led by George hill, Malcolm Brogdon and they kept him in the game because Janas even found out the first about a minute or so into the second overtime. But so now what in this chess match? What's the move? You know that Nick nurse in Toronto, we're going to go with something very, very similar. Why wouldn't they can't garyanddino onto the Kubo one on one? Even if that one guy is one of the best, I don't know two or three defenders in the league, the last five years, you still going to have to have those double teams. So now it's up to Milwaukee and coach, bud to figure out what spots to get onto the coupon in. So he's not facing those double teams all the time. And that's what we. Got the next forty eight hours. Oh, yeah. Kawai littered played fifty two minutes career-high. He had Kyle Lowry coming to him before the trainer could get there to put heating pads on his. I guess, ailing quads as he sat on the bench after dunk that put Toronto and control of the game. So the players I asked I asked how after the game, and I said you were pretty quick those heating pansies. I'm going to leave anybody to take care of my guy and he didn't. They understand everybody on this team. Everybody in this city understands the value of lynyrd in the playoffs. So turning into this all time epoch player for Toronto. The last time he played there was that thrilling. Unbelievable shot in that game seven which was just spectacular. And then when you think about tonight, Michael, it looked like he was banged up from the first basket really till the last everybody was out of gas at the end in double overtime and his defense down the stretch was great. But, but that's what you expect that of. A. You do. And there was time Steve, you mentioned from the beginning. I didn't realize he was necessarily limping five minutes into the game, but his teammates mentioned it. And there were spots. He gets to on the floor will, you are accustomed to seeing we all are collide plant and rise. I don't know that he was able to do that. I talk about it publicly when he gets out of the hot over or wherever it is. But, but that's the case. There were also couple shots where he might have into this thing in regulation, and after went overtime and you wonder if he could get the lift, and he's a customer getting yet, he was still able to defend and outlast Jaanus onto the coupe. Oh, his opposite. Number the to those two guys have been so great in these playoffs. You know, we, we look out west you look at all the roller look at Golden State alone with Steph curry, and what he's doing and, but you, you, you have to come back here and look at onto the coupe. Oh, and Kawai Leonard going after each other less than forty eight hours. One more time on this floor to see whether it's going to be even whether Milwaukee is gonna take a three. Lead back to concert. Bucks leading the series right now two to one raptors getting on the board with the win in game three on Sunday. Double overtime game. I on the raptors have played a multi overtime game in franchise history. The first conference finals game to go to double overtime since game five in two thousand seven in the conference finals between the Cavaliers and the pistons straight talk wireless. Everything for less only at WalMart. Sportscenter allnight ESPN radio Western Conference picks. Back up with game four on Monday for Damian. Lillard. Even though they haven't won yet. There's pride on the line..
Why would Kevin Durant leave the Warriors?
"Would Kevin Durant ever leave where he currently is because of his legacy? He's got to do it himself. I'm telling you he's already part of this team. It has been years now three of them since he supposedly joined the team he could not beat. And he is the MVP of their last two NBA final appearances. And might be again. We don't know. I mean, not supposedly he did they were down. They were up three one, and they blew it. And then he went and joined why would he leave it? Curry fits him better than but he knows how it fits. They all fit Kerr the management ownership that jewel of a stadium. We just heard about sounds. We're on gushing out of looking at it. Why would he leave it?

And we'll talk about that and game thrones with Liam Cunningham in a minute. But tonight, it's a huge huge doubleheader of playoff basketball, Milwaukee Bucks. Trying to close out the Celtics and maybe carry Irving's career with them. And then the pivotal game five as you know, the game fives are either pivotal or decisive? So it's decisive in Milwaukee tonight, potentially and definitely pivotal between the wall or rockets and warriors both games on TNT. And in Oakland right now. One of my favorites on the show as well. As on TV off the air as well from pardon, the interruptions, Mike wilbon, how are you Michael? I'm good. How are you doing hanging in there? Absolutely hanging in there. I guess what? I sent this to you right off the bat in Celtics bucks. Rockets warriors. What do you think is on the line tonight in both of those series? Michael wilbon. Well, you have one of them. I mean for Boston everything I mean, that's the that's the different next year. If I I'm presuming the ducks were win, maybe I shouldn't presume that guy. So they thought they sell to spend time series of to having been the forty years worth of playoff games in Boston. And knowing how that building worse than the fan base. The crowd the atmosphere was against teams, none of that evidence against Milwaukee. And I as you mentioned I'm here in northern California for the game tonight. And I you know, everybody's still presumes that the warriors are gonna win the words of their team. The warriors are not a great team right now. They're not they don't do anything. Great, you know, through sheer talent and even playing a sea level game. And I think there seem minus right now a lot of areas. Relative to what we see them at their best. They're not great team. They don't do. What did they do? Great. They don't shoot the three grade. They don't defend all the rim. And maybe I don't know that this boogie cousins. Returning to a line of eight point help that now if they don't have that element. I'm going to say they actually at times mischievous McGee, and they don't have they don't have much bench bench contribution. They're not great bear. So, you know, the rockets winning tonight. Yes, I could I don't know that I'm predicting that. But I'm not particularly anything with that series..

It's a good sounds like according to Ramona that he will be there, that's bad fame. Rob's running the show. I think it's a bad guy game of thrones fanatic. It is now come to your office.

"Mclovin. Do you want to throw out do the Lakers who are one game under five hundred three games back? The AT make the playoffs. How do you think? People answer with boy. Boy, the Brian is back. Yeah. But he's I don't think he's healthy. I'd have to look at who's going to be competing for that the eighth spot like who's in nine ten kings are kings are nine clippers eight Spurs jazz, everyone, you know, the whole west at the by there's like five teams within five games of each other. Yeah. Yeah. The odds are against LeBron and the Lakers making the playoffs this year. But I didn't you. I mean, you had people who thought they would play for the Western Conference championship this year, your member, then I want you gotta be kidding me. That's why I said if he got to fifty wins this year with that team. He should have been MVP. I think there are ways for forty one. I mean, so they're average they're an average team. But you had you had people who do this for a living who said the Lakers will play the Golden State Warriors for the Western Conference title amick. Mclovin. I kind of feel like if they say at the seven seed look at the other teams in the west the warriors. But then it's a nugget thunder blazers rockets jazz Spurs, the nuggets are right on the doorstep and Golden State Warriors. Dave saying I don't wanna play. I know why LeBron in there could do some damage, man. No. I know this is all ideas. Well, it's LeBron. But nobody else on that roster. I mean, Rondo my counting on him and chevelle be you know, you say, oh, they won titles. Okay. They did. Right. Used to be great. He did that title. Yes. Probably going to be a hall of Famer. But you know, once you get into the playoffs, and I don't know what I can expect from LeBron. Yeah. Fritzy, and our friend, Chris Mannix. I'd say from the gecko like what is this team that got some older guys that got some young guy. They can't really define who they are. And he was very much skeptical as to how this was going to work out or have them in the playoffs any time real soon. Well, he thought that the locker room was going to be combustible, and it it hasn't been and maybe it got close to it. When these younger guys realize, hey, we might get Anthony Davis. Oh, we're the reason why they're going to get Anthony Davis. We're gonna get traded. And so you know, that that can't be a pleasant locker room where you're walking in knowing that that guy is great as he is didn't want. You didn't think he could win with you? And even Luke Walton hasta know LeBron didn't bring in. And his history with coaches, he could be the fall guy. Also, the pelicans there's some people with the pelicans who believe Anthony Davis won't play again for the team this season by not because of injury. Well, I don't know how this works where you get around being fined one hundred thousand dollars for each game that you sit him out because I think the Commissioner lay down the law, but according to Scott Kushner of the New Orleans advocate there people within the pelicans organization who think Davis will be benched when play resumes after the all star break. Six man of the year, you can get away winning award. Does he get a bonus for that? The pelicans are unmotivated to play Davis for the rest of the season out of fear that he might suffer an injury. They know he has no intention of signing with them long term. So they're almost certainly going to trade him this summer. However Davis said he wants to keep playing the NBA reportedly threatened sanctions against New Orleans if they bench him while he's healthy. Now, he only played think five minutes in the all star game. But he's had a finger injury and a shoulder injury. I don't know if you can say he's not one hundred percent healthy. And you're gonna sit him for the last twenty five games of the regular season. Yes. No counter. Did I just miss here that or does any of that makes sense to you? The pelicans aren't gonna play hold on. We're going to take the sanctions to preserve your long term future..

"And I you know, trade me I want out of here. Collide didn't wanna look at the Lakers. He they he doesn't wanna be around that Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis is a little more pliable with his personality that you know, he would fit in. He would sort of you know, whatever mold LeBron needed him to be. He's capable of doing that. He's not a guy who is comfortable in the spotlight with headlines attached to him. He's just a great player. But I started to think about that Paul George likes Oklahoma City. Paul George is an MVP candidate in Oklahoma City, somehow became the number one guy in Oklahoma City over Russell Westbrook, which is really amazing to be able to do that. But he did coli in Toronto might be comfortable might want to stay there. So then you start to look around and go Kay who's going to be available. Is Chris Middleton from Milwaukee going to be available? What names are going to come in because LeBron desperately wants to win that next title? So you do it with three different franchises. He's trying to different differentiate his career from Michael Jordan's. That's the way to do it. Hey, look at what I did with three different franchises. But it's not gonna be that easy. And then you wonder who's going to be that piece that comes in? And you gotta get a couple of pieces here because I think LeBron looks at the younger group and says I can't win a championship with these guys, and he'll be helped if Kevin Durant leaves Golden State, but still Golden State won a title without Kevin Durant. I mean, you know, then if you lose Kevin Durant Deke boogie cousins, you know. So, you know, there's a seismic shift that could happen with all of this. And then maybe we get to the east and you look at the east with the Celtics and the Sixers with Toronto. And then if the. What happened again in the picture? Then all of a sudden the power is in the east not the west, but you still have Golden State. So if just kind of weird with the whole LeBron situation of who he is now where he is now and the Lakers organization, I think Luke Walton is going to be a fall guy here. You know, some of these younger pieces are going to be part of the trade bait to bring an Anthony Davis. And Anthony Davis hasn't won anything. He wanted national title at Kentucky. I don't even think he scored in the national title game. Didn't he did? He did he go like oh for something from the field. They had a few poise. Maybe like foul shots. Yeah. But I mean, Anthony Davis is wonderful. He is a you. You're the guy who came in before anyone on Anthony Davis. Like, I got the next superstar in the NBA like three weeks into his NBA career..

"Way. And that's what's going to happen. The reaching question to him question to eighties teammates about all situation. He's got easy out. So I don't see the video and I don't look down on the bench to see who's on the bench. I'm just coaching the team lead me out of this. He would look on the bench for guys. I don't know. I mean, I'm not looking to see if my guys in a suit, I, but I'm looking at I look at someone look out for our country and all this, man. He just has to stand up there and absorb all listen friendly. He didn't pick all the players that didn't pan out and helping Anthony Davis not win a championship. And this he didn't cut the video footage for that. And edit Anthony Davis, but he's got to stand up in front of everybody an answer for all their sins. Life is going to be hard enough for gentry through all this change. Why are you beat a bad teammate putting them out there like that? Now, it is by the way is it not peak NBA regular season in January that we're discussion about a lack of a superstar in the hype video. I mean that that sounds like January NBA regular season discussion. This sounds like last year when we are. Beefing over Isaiah Thomas is video tribute going back to Boston. That's what I'm saying. This is peak January NBA regular season. I think we're just looking for things to get us closer closer to the all star break, and then the playoff Jason and the play well, we need to because we're not going to have the normal LeBron James meltdown because he's not playing well, we'll get to that shortly actually. But this, but just so people understand how much the hype video has taken things Michael wilbon, Michelle Beedle in all Paul Pierce. Also all confused about the message is being sent for not sent in the lack of.
