It costs US has been said to say that Barnes has was one of the best basketball players he ever saw. You know for example. Julius Irving right the personification of the Aba there were times. There were nights cost us. Recollect that that. Barnes completely outplayed Julius Irving right the best and legendary players of the ABA. Not not sort of you know kept up with them but literally wipe the court with them. You know one on one as the better of the two players Moses Malone broke into the Aba the same year as Marvin. Barnes did and we all know what happened in loan. He had a longtime long-term hall of fame career across both the and the NBA.

Is Michael. Tell us in our conversation that Marvin seem to be kind of a approaching that summit in conquering his devils and his fears and his His trials and tribulations with drugs but it just always seemed to sort of fall back and ultimately consumed him near the end. So this is a story not only have a tragedy and sadness but maybe of Of Inspiration about You know Life not wasted but But actually well lived in that it serves as a reminder and as a representative life to to learn from Certainly the man was very talented and and the tragedies that befell him are not in vain and we're going to get into a very compelling conversation At sometimes very personal conversation with our guest this week Mike Carey the author of bad news.

"Personality. That sets off the warped reality. There's no real more on this story. In as far as everyone reading x men comics in two thousand eleven was concerned. She was very much debt. Nonetheless I find it impossible not to consider the possibility. What if that was my real? Or what if that foreshadows actions motor might consider taking a separate reality that she can control in order to ensure mutant victory? Why not? It's something she hasn't tried again. Morris hiding plants. She refuses the existence of pre cognitive mutant soccer coa because she doesn't want them to know plants. Something like a warped reality bent by lead into her. Whims is not out of the question. That's it I will admit here that I've been thinking more about Mercer Secrets. And as far as they theorize it's also very very plausible that she and leading beaten triumvirate simply don't want their people to know my restoring the details. The morale has lived through nine lives of this and lost every time could be absolutely devastating to morale pour in on the secret to create dramatic irony. Put the likes of cyclops. Wolverine Storm. They don't know or at least we don't know if they know. How different might everyone behave with the added weight? This is Moore's last ditch effort to find victory for mutants at. I don't know that it is necessarily plays well for all of your Coa.

Because it means that Myra somehow nudge Charles directly into the relationship with Gabrielle.

I generally imagined the both of them were in on this plot but the professors complete surprise. Fatherhood makes me really want following the age of x Professor Doctor Nemesis Create New Technology for Legion to control his various personalities and abilities.

Which brings us to the final era air number five. She our space in re-genesis carry era of X. Men concludes with a trip to she our space and rogue gambit and magneto decisions following the Great Wolverine cyclops schism of two thousand eleven. It's almost throwaway detail.

Reemergence Amores Ninth Life Stalwarts Omega Rasputin again. The means of travel have been used. It's really just down to specifics and timing window. They'll pop back up again into the creek array of X. Men. We certainly know at this point that it can be done. Which brings us to carry.

What if humans disappeared overnight and beyond smooth adaptation to the Shared Universe through lines? Mike carries out here weaving battle. The adamant like it's nothing even here in this generally overlooked typically reviewed graphic novel. There are outstanding ideas. I'm particularly obsessed with now with the idea of Alternate Reality Mutants from hopeless. Earth's would career. Coa be open to these alternate realities. How might they play a role in the stories to come again even in work? That isn't necessarily knockout. There's some really cool ideas that could be played with so that brings us to the end here whether or not the children of the vault remain. The most direct connection between Hickman's X. men and the Mike Carey run remains to be seen. But even if so. There's so many concepts in good stories in the second longest. X. Men run ever that it's well worth exploring for any COMP Fan all right I love this. Ron is you check it out again if you want to read.

"The entire plot leaves a lot of wiggle room for house. Vaccine Hickman Era x-men theories and frankly ads plenty of credence to those house of X. Powers of readers still wondering if this is actually professor x plotting Krakatoa even if the story is not quite so literal as to feature sinister actually masquerading as the professor. There's a question of senators influence on the professor over this entire time line. Sinister is certainly hinting that the professors actions could never fully be his own but lies deceit. Emulation are the name of senators game for my money. I think a the professor was sinister to the whole time. Twist is too obvious for everyone involved but I'm never ruling out sinister lying in wait where we least expect him. I'm not sure the broader implications but I also can't help a call out x men legacy number two hundred nineteen as one of my absolute favorite single issues of carriers focusing on a diner confrontation between professor x and the Juggernaut. If you've ever wanted the rival stepbrothers dynamic in miniature this is definitely the issue for you and I would say required reading prior to the eventual Juggernaut mini series. That has been announced as part of the Dawn. Aaron number three in the Mike Ron Rogue Gambit and magneto beginning with x men legacy number two hundred and Kerry shifts. The character study back to a favourite from his start on the run rope. The book is still very much in x men title at heart who spent plenty of time on Utopia with cyclops frost doctor nemesis and the whole central crew such as nightcrawlers gloriously. Sassy magneto in the field but more often than not. It's through the Lens of Roque with supporting focus on gamut magneto to historical romantic pairings for rope. Actually like to think of this period is one where row takes on a role similar to the doctor in doctor who or even dream of the endless and Sandman. The story can run in a million directions. But you'll always make an appearance in play a role within that framework Kerry consistently makes interesting choices when plucking characters and elements from X. Men history and weaving them into something new again. It's easy to identify a large swath of choices that connect back to the ner. The first and most obvious is the return of the children of the vault. The Children Return via floating temporal city of Cotabato and it's not quite as exciting as the team debut although even here we get more insight into the function formation of the children the rules their society their plans for a new world and we see them explicitly identifying post human which snaps in my mind forward to. Mirus six life. I also love the potential of detail. The children tell rogue during their inevitable fall has the X. Men mentioning their plans will make our own world here in the void between dimensions. This has a lot of potential. For the Hickman era either tying to interstellar travel via black holes or possibly with the vault inhabiting the Limbaugh like space were apocalypse first horsemen and seemingly old man cable. You remember the very end of cable number. One might be trapped one of my favorite developments elsewhere. As a fondness of carries for playing with pre Cox as blindfold becomes a recurring player and destiny is notable utilized during the necrosis event. I issues brought back from the dead. As part of Salinas Grant Schemes Blindfold Aka Ruth. Ruth aldean's has the mutant ability of clairvoyance although her messages. Usually arrive jumbled and difficult to piece together given waivers fear of pre cognitive mutant soccer coa and her particular enmity towards destiny. There are many fascinating I was especially struck by a revived destiny stating I see timelines past and future which rings true in an entirely New Light given the revelations of House of X. Number two. It's not intentional. But the sequence now could be read as destiny did mission of her knowledge of my reusability. 's It's unfortunately also worth calling out the blindfold commit suicide in the volume of UNCANNY X men mealy preceding house of x and as far as I know has not been revived on. Koa PRESUMABLY BY MORRIS EDICT. She would not be allowed to resurrect which is another issue that I think should come up along with mistakes. Quest to bring back destiny that same arc includes additional nuggets through the return of Proteus and destiny's admission that his presence and power sets cloud her reads of the future. Well this is obviously just meant in regards to the particular necrosis story. My carrying company were telling it also really fuels. My ongoing theory. That proteus is a target apart. Myers life ten plan. Proteus's engineered by Myra as means of giving birth to mutant with reality warping abilities. This plays a role in making the dream of the five end mutant resurrection critical possible. That could be enough on its own. But what a also offered Myra away to escape the predictive powers of destiny. This offers some textual evidence. The police can uniquely impact destiny which is perhaps not at random. Speaking major hawks connections carries role throughout the entire second. Crossover event brings a nimrods Cypher. Traveling to the future to take on master molds and evolving Omega sentinels. The events wake while second coming is all part of the larger crossover carry uses the aftermath to explore the impact. On Karima ship ponder the Omega Sentinel in a character house of fans will recognize from project. Orcas the fallout means that Kareem is Nimrod. Cpu was attacked by virus. Cipher created to stop time. Traveling nimrods in Karima more or less evolves into the out of Control Omega. Sentinel that the X. men you know potentially feared her to be. This is a character who was human was turned into transformed into new mega sentinel and fights alongside the X men. She's a part of the initial X. Men Roster as Carrie writes it and by the time we get to the aftermath of second come in. She is taken over the central part of her sort of takes over a leading to the position. We find her in in house. Events empowers ten. I think there's potentially a lot more to explore with her character as well as sort of a death lock of the Mutant Universe on a final note from this time there's also a continuation of the gamut death apocalypse development that occurred in blood of apocalypse. The issues of x men immediately preceding carries zone run when gambit became apocalypse horsemen of death. I truly do not remember this. Ever saw resolution but given gambit in apocalypse is Rockville alliance in the page of dawn of X. EXCALIBUR. It certainly makes sense and it makes that relationship a heck of lot more interesting at least to me. Erin number. Four in the Mike. Iran is Ajax and legion. I'm generally a sucker for age of alternate realities in the moral universe but carries x crossover. Never quite won me over all the way. The sudden alternate reality spread across an event issues legacy in new mutants issues also written by Carey features a World Without X. men just mutants hunkered down in a fortress defending wave after wave of humanity's eight. There are some memorable reality. Interpretations of known characters Mike carrying Gabriel Hernandez's walters origin for Bassil. Let's go the psychologically decimated soldier version of Scott. Summers is a particular standout but it actually argue the aftermath of the age in which characters retain their memories of the alternate universe in half the decide whether or not to keep them is best. Part of x is also the point where carry very earnestly leans into the various connotations of legacy in the book's title. There's a legacy. The professor has left behind from kind as reevaluates his decisions with the X. men but there's also rogues ability to absorb dissipating memories into a walking database of mutant kinds history amazingly she develops in ways not entirely dissimilar from the use of cerebral backing up all mutants in house of x in the age of actually has quite literally code-named legacy although cannonball and others refer to her as reaper due to her position absorbing powers any soldier has fallen on battlefield. Likewise Legion is a genetic part of professor x's legacy and ultimately it's revealed that the age of acts is all a creation of one of Legion's powerful personas. This would all well and good in the grand scheme of Legion after all. He also basically starts the age of apocalypse through his actions but the specifics of legions accidental alternate reality are so fascinating in the wake of House of X. In the age of x Legion operates is one of the five force warriors with his mother. Mctaggart awaiting him in the fortress cracks in the false reality as the cracks in the false reality begin to show. It's revealed that Myra is really the one behind this reality. Just wanting to create a space religion can be free from the sorts of medical experiments fixes. The likes of Doctor Nemesis would inflict upon him. Now as the story is told Maura in the age is just a persona chosen for the Rogue Legion.

The title Takes Place Post House of 'em post scarlet which declaration of no more mutants during the decimation era carries entire run on x men legacy would they would evolve into is very much integrated into the x men continuity of the time progressing from decimation to Messiah Complex to dark reign to nick. Rocha to second coming to age of x to re-genesis considering only one of those events is Mike Carey's own it's an impressive feat collaborating enrolling with broader story lines in shifts and status quo for mutants carries work is also very much a fan favourite in according to current x-men mastermind. Jonathan Hickman in an interview with adventures in poor taste criminally. The underrated nature of the wrong can probably be attributed to operating in the shadows of larger x-men franchises for example carries X. Men launched alongside at Brubaker taking over UNCANNY X men. After his work on Captain America the Winter Soldier in the absence of a central Goto story highlight that stands out individually. The age of x event was likely the greatest. And although it's fascinating I wouldn't call it great. You know highly recommended on its own terms necessarily but we'll get to that in many ways. The runs greatest strengths. Complex integration of long running x men continuity deep slow builds the characters professor x rogue gambit and occasionally. Magneto or what keeping a mild secret for casual comics readers nonetheless aside from Clermont sixteen years with the experts from seventy five to nineteen ninety-one in arguably the Scott Labelle and Chris Barlow era of generation X. no x men comics have a greater influence on the two thousand Nineteen Twenty Twenty Donna. Vex regular artistic contributions from Chris Below claimants? Scott Eaton and Steve Kurth should be highlighted here with Kerry as well all right. We're GONNA take this era's the first is X. men and the children the clearest influence in the one I've already discussed the most is right there in Kerry's first story ARC WITH ARTISTS. Pocatello with the introduction of the children of the vault in the Supernova story. The children are opposed human species that spent an estimated centuries in accelerated sealed time developing beyond advanced technologies them more or less manifest superpowers as identified in previous cracking. Rico as the children are very much in line with the human threats of more six life. Human adaptation along technological lines in x number five professor x goes so far as to call them the greatest threat to mute and kind the children consider themselves superior inheritors implant to wipe the planet clean so their enhanced kind Kennison as written by carry. The children are consistently more powerful. Immune kind and it's generally thought some sort of day sex mocking up or through some sort of day. Makina in unexpected turn of events in Supernova is more or less encouraging mistaken lady mastermind to trick and kill a number of the children that the X. men do survive with the children emerging as early as Hickman in Lionel Francis US X. Men Number one in the dawn of X. They remained the most direct connection from Mike Carries X. men to the CREKO era. It's a story well worth reading and not at all difficult to see. Why Hickman drew inspiration from it. Because it's a fascinating concept that very much ties into themes. He is very interested in. It's the influences beyond what's already been heavily utilized that strikes me the most in twenty twenty though so just carries clear interest in Exodus Bennett. Duprey as this tremendously powerful mutant follower magneto now branching out his own path of mutant dominance in X. men exodus and his new acolytes. Also have a genuinely intriguing plant seeking to combine cables knowledge of the future and the destiny diaries. In order to predict win mutants will begin. Repopulating the planet not for nothing stories revelation. That Butin kind is a truly endangered. Species are the title of series of backups. Carry writes about beast trying to sulphur. Decimation EXODUS TURNS TO MISTER SINISTER in his master plan for the species. Survival EXODUS. Man's bolt the early x men days and the professor x focus have x men legacy in the Omega level. Telecom medic is now part of Jonathan Hickman's quite council of her Coa as well as his goto campfire storyteller for the kids apart from his nineties origins and Wild Black Knight. One Shot that connects exodus black knights or see the journals and the ever loving buckle up carries. Work is without question what I think i. When I think of accidents in a clear fountain that Hickman drawing from his own evolution of the character. There's also the selective reemergence of destiny's diaries a loaded concept from coast Clermont's early two thousands return to extreme X. men in a reflection of the supporting but the relevant role destiny will play in the run in the Carey Ron. Destiny's diaries are. Hunted is the key to unlocking the survival of mankind the destiny. Diaries are a superfund artifact. The next men lore the recorded futures written by Irene Adler is her powers manifested for the first time as Clermont rights. In extreme x-men number one much of the entries in her diary was written in languages unknown term in code in Pictograms if that doesn't set the stage for Cohen Revival potentially. I don't know what does then again. I'm not greater here really. I don't know what adjective lists ends with both a build anti into Messiah Complex marking a break point and carries run from X. Men Number one hundred and eighty eight to two hundred and seven. This is the two thousand four to two thousand seven. Run for those of you. Looking Limited as the title would become x men legacy after this point in time crucially the rush to Messiah. Complex affords carry a focus on mister sinister. And his reassembled marauders the exploration of Mister Sinister. Were continue successfully intellectually. I really don't think can be overstated. How well carried bounces off larger line wide events in crossovers without missing a beat in often using the occasion? To add exciting ideas. That simply wouldn't have been possible previously. Which brings us to air number to professor x and sinister secrets. Following Messiah. Complex X men. Crossover about the birth of the first mutant sense. Decimation Kerry picks up the pieces of professor x literally gunned down by Bishop of all people. It was an accident and thought data the events conclusion X-men Lexi number two hundred and eight hundred and twenty-five is a remarkable character. Study of Charles. Xavier something I celebrated my very first episode of cracking. Coa with the history of profess rex. Hero going to a little bit greater detail about this era. Big-picture carry really captured the complexity and contradictions of professor x riding into x men. Legacy in the wake of deadly genesis and new vendors luminosity amid the confrontation of some of his greatest failures ethical compromises for those house of X. Raiders missing the kindly Nineties Animated Patrick Stewart. Professor Legacy captures more introspective version.

Attempted heroism without a racing the shadows of his past speaking of shadows and impurities after his resuscitation by exodus the new and the new acolytes and a little bit of help for magneto professor x uncovers a sinister secret lurking in the back of his consciousness. The coolest carry polls here is that sinister presence. As part of a decades long plan make himself immortal or more immortal all deeply integrated into the fabric? Professor X's Childhood Cooler still carry revises or revises. Professor X is passed so that his father his stepfather Kurt Marko in sinister masquerading Dr Milbury and get this.

He could back himself up. Extraordinarily powerful mutant body is sinister puts it? I can write myself my mind. My Physical Matrix even my memories onto the mind and body of someone else. Honestly in a Lotta ways. Sisters Own Resurrection Protocols Kind of DWARF KIRK OAS Although of course only securing these methods for himself not all of meeting kind. It's very in character plot for mister sinister here. In a pre everything is sinister phase as we've seen him execute similar background operations on the lives of very various x men. Most memorably Scott Summers Xavier Confronts Scott with is unsettling reality telling him hey sinister. Was everyone in your orphanage.

"Do you think you sort of you came into this this story of his pro career somewhat in media says right i mean you were not there for the saint louis years you you didn't see him or maybe we're not sort of lately aware of his providence days prior to sort of coming into the store years later which do you think kind of created the other do you think the erratic behavior in the upbringing and whatever the psychological profile of growing up in in in a terrible we'll neighborhood and and you know rough childhood and all that kind of stuff begetting the drugs or do you think drugs ultimately kind of enabled the bad behavior and the and the craziness and ultimately and i wanna ask you your thoughts about this his bolting from the from the spirits with basically leaving the team right which just sorta the ultimate active craziness well that was leaving the team was that was a three day event i mean he he i was told by a teammate that is contractors terrible in the admit a big mistake signing it and in the marvin bought into that fired his agent this is joe caldwell guy that you're talking about that was kinda and marvin went to call well wasn't caldwell going the marvin but when mar i wanted to call well cowell the team wrap and call well you know listen to marvan any when he heard the holidays and you have a bad deal you you you don't have any only guarantees on your contract if you you get into your they don't have to pay you in that you know marvin her that and he just he just took off i mean easy caller hooked him up with his agent marin fi the guy who was hiring hammer guy named bob wolff who one of the biggest agents in the business but i i didn't particularly care for the guy but he was he was a big name i may represent a bird in when bernie came into the NBA so pretty big i but you know marvin had been taking money from wealth further for three three this last four years in college wolf have been sending him money which which were loans but still illegal for an agent to do and that's why marvin went with with wolf and it was just the push marvin to sign with saint louis rather than signing philadelphia wolf was was double dipping and he got a it got his ten percent commission from for marvin and he also got ten percent commission from spirits so wolf was raking in a ton of dough and of course double dipping is unethical a. and of course wolf didn't tell marvin that he was taking money from spirits because marley platoon to gather and said y are you pushing me to the spirits when i'm the second pick in the NBA draft but it didn't it just carter marvin that you know and i don't think he realized ashley the implications of playing in the NBA is a great way but i think with marvin with with the way marvan thought it his mindset he would've i'm convinced he would have been far better off aw if he signed with the NBA because the NBA had structure they i don't think martin would have been able to to get away with the things that you know he got away within the ABA yeah it's tough i know he wouldn't admit you know it wouldn't agai a ak- roosevelt becton i think he would have gotten more discipline it would it just would have more structure structure life because from day one saint louis marvin can do whatever you want it i mean it was a funny johny guy who's a glib guy he had a bundle of talent and the you know outside of that the three days is that a took off and went to a pool tournament hidden akron ohio i mean in dayton ohio he he in caused many problems his teammates all loved him his coach said first-year loved many the thing in doing the book i didn't find too many teammates or coaches that dislike marvin he's a he's a funny guy nice guy you know he it was just a likable guy and you know it it it's a shame what happened to it it's just you know and and like i say by the time he was traded from the pistons and he was traded to buffalo blow a ear bob'll buffalo braves the seventy seven seventy eight season yeah yeah and by that time he was he lost all his town in he'd have a good game one one in six or seven games would be good evening the rest of which each thank thank you know from buffalo he went to the celtics started started out you now now he sent his alice's is in you know he's twenty miles from home thirty miles from home if anything it was gonna straighten him out it would have been playing for the boston celtics but it didn't and he told the story on on himself eventually he's he's sitting on the self expense with a towel over his head snorting cocaine and inch during a game during the game rain and blood is trickling down his nose and sitting next to him was don cheney another player in good player on a good guy and cheney cheney what's what's going on and he just sprints to the the other end the bench to get away for marvin and and and i think it was in february and you know marvin i think it was it wasn't the a nobody knew you bad except for cheney didn't saving anybody but i just showed you know it showed how how bad marvin was ruin and a wasn't more than three or four weeks later that marvin had called in sick for a couple of games you know he he wasn't sick he was issues he he's hung over he was drugged out but he you know and callans who is the coach dade county cowan's was the player coach time just finally said you know kinda they they even even roller trouble that marvin dade county yeah first time counted ever coach he's a young guy he's twenty nine nine thirty years all they make a coaching change they fire satch sanders who had been the coach for a couple of years and a side they're going to hire dave you've at twenty nine years old at thirty is all to be the coach only man and a few years older than he was marvin about the same age about the same age but even day and dave despite all the trouble marvin presented missing practices missing planes acting goofy for probably from the drugs they finally got no choice i'm letting you go you know and martin put up a fight because he knew he had screwed up marvin ended up now backing up on him send everybody i thought his career was over but he ended up in a playing on another year year with the he got cut cut from the clippers at but the clippers coach was gene do not coincidentally but who had been the general manager of the philadelphia seventy sixers when they drafted marlin and she loved marvin's town so even though you know they were all these stories floating around the league about now crazy things underdone shoe offered him a tryout a goes to trial up and today's at a at a rookie camp and two days into the shoe shoot cuts marvin and of course marvin marvin been hadn't played for five months it was cut in february beurey and here we are in august marmon martin gets called by the blue from gene shue who says i want to try out for our team out you know come to rookie camp and work with the the rookie season helpfully vote will end up keeping well so he showed up even jane show who you know at at just a ton of faith in mar had no choice the cutter i mean then van tomorrow goes home goes on starts feeling sorry for himself using drugs and low behold jinzhou cosmic again and now it's like it's january the next year and eight shoe expert for help he's he's got some injuries bill on a stand in walden has foot injuries marvin sorta needs a shoe store a big guy like marvin to both back up walton and maybe even play a little power for so march says okay you know sounds good he goes goes out there and you know but he's by then he's you know we're talking about five years into his career four years into his career and he's always town is evaporated he he does not the player that he was he stands sober he's buddy buddy with walton they'd been good friends since college days but he couldn't couldn't do it couldn't couldn't perform he played five minutes ten minutes a game it gave a full effort but his he had no legs his legs were shot he wasn't checked i made he just just a shadow of former south and at the end of the year the clippers still had a chance to make the playoffs and they had one they had to win the final three games and i think they won the first i thank but the second game down by point and marvin's on the court and the world world free their guard has the ball in the final ten seconds and everybody thought for sure that were afraid with this i great outside shooting was going to take the final shot and he passed it in the moment avenues all alone seven feet from the basket and he puts up a shot the two five foot airball and the clippers lose eliminated and that that was marlins final final NBA shot he he went on he played the uh played CBA played for the detroit spirits not not to be confused with the spirits of saint louis is this is a continental basketball association and he he's backed using drugs heavily eh and eventually cloning sector games wasn't producing i mean when they when the when the detroit franchise sign marvin they fly them out and have a big press conferences marvin is talent everybody that you know play in our i'm gonna i'm gonna take this league by storm arm now and he he he was you know he missed practices he'd be late for for games or just what on show opera game and eventually the GM had no choice but to to let them go a blade another year in the same way he was terrible he went overseas to trieste italy and got fired from that team an all along the way everybody area everybody's suspects or knows that he's using drugs.

"Were using drugs and like i said they didn't have they didn't have a drug testing program and these guys were so tapped out it don't okay wrong wasn't just three or four guys there are a lot of guys that used it but you'd be surprised that the name of some of these guys they go out and get high after game aim or before a game it was at pro well yeah i mean look also you're talking about young guys big contracts and you know oh not unlike say the music industry or the the entertainment industry right where and the mid late seventies i mean you know coke was the was the quote unquote designer drug of choice jason and you know i wanna say just chalk it up to a different time but you know no there's no doubt that it was nine only prevalent but it was clearly addictive and and it's like anything right i i don't know how much you can use it in moderation because it's such an addictive drug and but it's clear it got it got the best of marvin but but it seems to me that the seeds of well some of this obviously has to be psychological profile to i you know you were talking before about sort of him rebelling and leaving or effectively leaving you know getting all upset when you know the coach that had had sort of brought him along with the pistons justin was sort of you know was it was out of the picture it to me almost feels like i mean you look at the saint louis days it was pretty clear and maybe because he was a high draft take because they spent so much money on him and he was admittedly kind of the star player of the team he was coddled right i mean it seems like they kind of look the other way with all this sort you've you know in rochester heavier i guess they would call that today they call that enabling yeah i don't think they knew anything about his drug problems but they knew he was unpredictable you know he'd have he'd have have great games i've terrible games you know him terrible for everybody else probably average foot marlins such talent that they they should to find him for missing actresses missing planes lack of effort that there are a number of things they could find them for but they didn't because he that the owner love marvin the general manager was powerless to because they even the fine marvin and they would always announce marlins going to be fine for this and he never was because the owner didn't wanna find hi my name it got so bad that the harry weldon the GM was just you know couldn't figure out what to do because the owner wouldn't let him fine thank you know he can announced his fine but marvin newly wasn't gonna have to pay anything some of the other players on team they they they weren't mad marvin urban 'cause they knew this was mar but they were mad at the spirits for not trying to influence marvin in the right way but it was a crazy team i mean the spirit of st. louis they had when in marvin rookie year they also had gushed your who is a rookie and they had fly williams his rookie and off three of them were addicted to cocaine by the end of the rookie season so you had three rookies were all using drugs and yeah i don't know all of the management management knew it or not but they you know i mean gus gerard was a quiet kid went to virginia good player didn't cause any problems but you had fly williams with a crazy crazy guy today fly williams was sitting in a a new york prison because he was he's entre he'll be on trial off shortly for selling cocaine and heroin high school age kids he was running this heroin rain and that was a multi million dollar rank and the new york city taskforce eventually caught him you know so you had between him and marvin guzzler wasn't a problem you know he he hit his in cabot pretty cleverly and eventually caught up the guston and his marriage broke up and his career the era ended prematurely and yeah he he was the only one of the three those guys who ended up a salvage in his life and then he went to rehab got cleaned and stayed clean ended up being a drug counselor in texas and you know today is a very productive guy and very inspirational speaker any any talks quite openly about the problems he had you know and so did marvin marvin would tell in his in his later years marvin would talk giving talks to high school kids and these talks a great speaker it did some big work with with the with it kids but naturally the.

ultimately tragedy as we're going to get into with our guest this week mike carry the border line legendary sports writer in the in boston for for many many years and we're going to get it into the life and times of this most enigmatic character named marvin barnes a tremendous talent in the early seventies he could light up the boards at at providence college lead them into the final four and tremendous seasons of of basketball glory at at the collegiate level and i was one of the most sought after draft picks both from the NBA and the ABA but he went to the saint louis spirits was his talent on the basketball court was unquestioned when he was paying attention and when he was was focused that you heard bob costas who as you may know was the the voice of the spirits coming right out of syracuse as a cub announcer fresh out of college and his first sort of professional sessional play-by-play gig and his preface of this book by mike carey which is called bad news the turbo life of marvin barnes which we're going to get into you in a few moments the preface alone by bob is is it really puts it all into into perspective you know he he basically said that and and we're gonna get into to it as marvin barnes was not only one of the great untold stories of american sports but you know in terms of of his playing capabilities it costs has has been and said to say that barnes has one of the best basketball players he ever saw you know for example julius irving the personification of the ABA there were times there were nights kostas recollect that that barnes completely outplay julius irving right the best and legendary players of the ABA not not sort of kept kept up with them but literally wipe the court with them you know one on one as the better of the two players moses malone broke into the the same year as marvin barnes did and and we all know what happened in malone he had a longtime long-term hall of fame career across both the ABA and the NBA he was that malone was the NBA MVP he for for three years in his career people forget that marvin barnes in the nineteen seventy four seventy five season his rookie season he was the AB as rookie of the year he was a tremendous talent he could light it up i mean there were there were games we had forty fifty points a game but as we're gonna get into with with mike carey just a few moments the story of marvin

a lifestyle and a frankly just to a corralling of life by by drug addiction that i in many cases marvin barnes attempted many opportunities to get out of the grips of it and it just continued to sort of fall flat out of sobriety despite some of the best ever look listen to some of the clips or find some of those clips of marvin barnes not not only playing but being interviewed and a very jovial guy very you know well meaning soul if you will it certainly in the years i in his later years was trying to basically create himself as an example of what not to do and trying to warn kids and young adults to to to find a straighter path and recognize the pitfalls of what their lives might have sort of fallen into but you you know despite of all the opportunities and the efforts and to climb that mountain and there are certain times is mike will tell us in our conversation that marvin seem and to be kind of a approaching that summit and conquering his devils and his fears and his his trials and tribulations with drugs but it just always seemed to sort of fall back and ultimately it consumed him near the end so this is a story not only of tragedy and sadness but maybe of of inspiration about you know a life life not wasted but but actually well lived in that it serves as a reminder and as a representative life to to learn from certainly the man was very talented and and the tragedies that befell him are not in vain and we're gonna get into a very compelling conversation shen at sometimes very personal conversation with our guest this week mike carry the author of bad

teammate of marvins a guy named kevin mistaken i got to know him a little bit he is a friend of mine and a why don't you do a story on on marvin barnes and when i was a bit reluctant because he i knew his reputation was very sketchy i knew he had been to i got a couple of jams rob the city bus when he was in high school he also pled guilty not too hitting a teammate at providence with tyrod so i really didn't want to do it but a stake him say now he's really gotten a bad reputation from this day doesn't deserve it would you look into it so i said sure when was was this was this was after his ABA days and during his NBA days what was the sort of suggestion that you reach out and sort of do a story on them the fall of seventy seventy five and he had just gotten a marlin had played in the NBA and then it folded and he had just been taken by the detroit pistons in the ABA dispersal draft i known sown just leery of doing anything with them because he just had a reputation of being a thug but i respect the kevin stake him because it he said no he's not he's not a thought like the guy so i called up and i it was going to meet him at a at a celtic pistons game in hartford connecticut it was all arranged i so i drive down to hartford and marvin talk me you know i said why won't why won't talk to me and he he had mark martin had like hotel suite for the game and i was supposed to meet him in his room after the game and when i get up there there's these two huge guy standing at the door and they won't let me in and so i said just tell them that mike back here and the guy comes back into marin doesn't wanna talk to you so i go home i i i give up on the story i this is ridiculous i go home i think about it and i go you know i'm gonna do the story whether he likes it better not i

"To be on there as well i wish everybody could have taken part in what happened in the first hour for me it was historic i don't know how often that happens in the business to be honest with you i love people are lincoln up across the pond a lot but it was really cool to get perspective from there what was interesting is i think that they were actually looking for protesters to call in a bunch of artists that i got together we painted a bunch of antitrump art that's great i mean people do that here it'd be whatever i mean i like the one guy called and he said there are more of us over here that like this president than you think and i think that the the purpose of those in the opposition is to make it seem as though the entirety of the country in the entirety of the uk in fact hates him just like that's the same thing here with the leftwing in this country everybody has to hate him and you've got to go down to talk you points he's a nazi by the way the call from yakim i thought did a great job these are nazilike tactic so when when adrian said well that's that's early offensive to say that her response beth listen you're still listening in yakima your response was masterful it's just as offensive to say that about our president that was very smart but i definitely want your thoughts on this a lot of people hung with us lot of you didn't get on because working out the technical details was i think key to make sure that sent a good both here and there i want to hear from you on the experience mike what do you think of corpus christi good to talk to you thanks for heart conversation we've been having illegal immigration there are people in our country who think that it's okay for people to come here and be undocumented we don't know where they're coming from attention bar what they're gonna do when they get here but when you hear people in great britain and saying that we should not have sovereignty it makes you wonder about how they feel about their country how would they like it if we do you know what a bunch of illegal aliens on a boat and i'm craig accepting some of the radical muslims for years and are suffering the consequences of that yes i'm guessing they would not be happy if we loaded up some boats with illegal immigrants from here in cincinnati i'm guessing they would not be happy with that mike carey let let me ask.

"Unless you're mike carey when what he got everything wrong all the times and then they move on from this but but beyond that too i mean we're talking about some guys who are a little bit in their senior in terms of you know being ready to try something new i mean just like anything else i don't think there's any hidden thing here where the the referees are saying this is just not worth it despite the fact that you know a lot of these guys throughout their career have been basically part timers try making rival sides but yes to that one thing there it benefits them to be part timers because they have other jobs that they do that pay them very well outside of the nfl years ago wanted to make them fulltime right the rush like no no no we're double dipping good i get what you're saying but when you say they're part timers it was to their benefit without god i can see these guys are getting older i understand that it's simply a matter of time so do we think that there's going to be a drop off in officiating this year because there have been four or five guys that have been around for a long time now some people may have some issues with the way these guys call games but now we're getting much less experienced guys going to be on the field jeanette or both like probably on very underrated in terms of because they become sort of caricatures of themselves but but in terms of their acumen for the for the rule book i mean they're very underrated might be the most difficult job in football i heard that argument before my thought is i mean so these guys have been roughing forever they know the rule book i know a lot of guys in the nfl twelve year players are real good sixyear players who are great.
