"The wind out of here to 40 on the John Phillips Show. Talk Radio 7 90 K A B C 802 225222 is the telephone number 1 802 22 k A. B C Randy, I have to take issue with something that you said the sportscast. Oh, no, that I mentioned the angels. They're playing or something. Not that we'll discuss that at a later date. You talked about the passing of Laker great Elgin Baylor, who unfortunately died today. And you described him as the first major star for the Lakers. Was that correct? That's what I read earlier. So that's what I said earlier, the first major star for the Lakers was not Elgin Baylor, Maybe in Los Angeles. It was Elgin Baylor, but George Mike in Was the first star the Minneapolis Lakers ever had a 6 10 Croatian who could Absolutely not miss. I stand corrected, and Steve Edwards were here. He'd find out who the star was before they became the Minneapolis Lakers, and he'd correct May Tell that works. All right. Are you ready for some fresh squeezed political analysis? Randy, who do we have for that? Well, the one and only o J. Simpson. Hey, Twitter world is me yours truly well, I was scrolling the news today and it's getting a little depressing. You know, Um I'm really a little depressed about this. I'm watching the situation even though It appeared to be more about money because it Z. He's been charging more civil case more than a criminal case. I don't know how it's gonna turn out. I just hope it turns out right, But I think you've got to let these things go through the system him for more. All of these things. You gotta let it work. I see what a judge in Minnesota decided not the change of venue for the shape in case that's on George Florida situation, and I thought that was a good decision. I've never once asked. Have Ah, venue change, even though I saw sold of law and order once that imply that I did, but no, I never did. I don't think it works in this day and age. You got Cable TV. Everybody knows everything about everything. You know what I'm saying. So I see a Minnesota They got a jury. It appears right now that reflects, you know the makeup of the neighborhood and I think that's a real good thing. Um, I also was watching TV. And I saw this, Uh, Senator McCoy something down in Texas. Talk about Get a big old tree and a rope and refined the lynching. Bad guys. Well, That kind of upset me when I was a kid. I remember two books that would pretty much mandatory reading. One was animal form, and the other one was the Ox Bow incident. They did the movie about the Oxbow incident. And it kind of pointed out the dangers of taking the law in your own hands and lynching. It seems that somebody should make this senator are we getting to read the Oxbow incident or at least watched the movie? I'm just saying in any of it, let the legal system work. Um, in any event. Get your shots Stay safe, and where the mass I'm just saying, Take care. Now here's a question. The night that Ron and Nicole were killed. I wonder of O. J was wearing a mask way. No. He's wearing a glove. You gotta love any time when O J references one of his own trials because he doesn't have extensive history in that department in one of his Twitter musings of the news of the day. Hey, John, We've got some breaking news coming out of Sacramento. No breaking on a M. 7 98 Macy, The warden is reversing course Yet again Last week, it was announced that okay, we're gonna allow youth and high school sports again, but no cheerleading because that's unsafe. No band, no drum line, no choir, And if you are the parent of a child, it's in youth sports On Lee. One person from the family can watch in a time. They're now reversing track on all those decisions and, yeah, you can share lead. You could drum line You can ban and more than one parent can go watch your kid play at a high school baseball or football game. Of course, because of the science because of the outrage and because of the recall, I'm telling you put enough pressure on this governor. He'll fold on every decision he's made. I don't know if you saw any of those pictures that were circulating around the Internet over the weekend. But in places like Santa Clarita, parents were not allowed to watch their kids play sports. And so the stadiums were empty, with the one designated or two designated parents that were allowed in And literally everyone else piled around the fence so they could watch it not from the stands in the stadium, but from outside the stadium, where you can still see all the action going on and all the parents just stood there and watched. I saw that, and I saw pictures of parents watching from their cars surrounding the outside of that arena so they could watch their kid play from the safety of their car because the state of California using science, said on Lee, one parent in this Fans at your kid's soccer game. What we're dealing with here in the state of California is a game of Simon says. Except instead of Simon says, it's science says, and science says whatever it is that helps Ward Newsome avoid being kicked out of office. Well, and then locally, you look at what happened with the fake doctor today in changing the rules again, once again for bars, wineries and breweries and distilleries saying, Well, if you serve food that safer so you can have indoor surveys, and you can serve people alcohol indoors. However, if you don't serve food if you're just a bar, if you're just a brewery in you don't Have some kind of restaurant attached. No endorse service for you. You've got to be outside and we're putting a curfew on you. You close at eight o'clock. I really do think we've turned the corner in terms of public opinion on this. I used to go out and go for runs every single morning and then I had to stop doing it for many months because I developed tendinitis in both Achilles tendons. So today was the first day I was back out running again where I felt comfortable doing it. And I never wear a mask when I go running because a I running by myself, be I'm outdoors. See, I need the oxygen and I live in an area where even when it's not the dead of summer, it's still pretty hot. And I always get dirty looks. Sometimes people say something to me. Sometimes people gesture to their face as if I should be wearing my mask or put your mask on, and I just ignored them and go about my business. Well, when I went on my run this morning, I pass by any number of people and not what's did I get a dirty look Not once. Did someone say where the mass? Not once did someone make a gesture with their hands? People even in my neighborhood of hall monitors are absolutely over it. Yeah, I'm noticing that, too. I'm noticing a lot of people that are out in about They're they're not really worrying about it. I also noticed this weekend. Ah, lot of people were out about. We wanted to just go for a walk because it was nice. We went to Balboa Park by our house. I have never seen it more crowded in my entire life. That is a huge park with a ton of parking spaces, And there wasn't one because everybody is out trying to do something. Nobody's just staying at home anymore. Here's what I've noticed that the restaurants in the bars and planes and anywhere else that serves booze for for that matter. After people get their second drink, so they've consumed their first drink, and they're starting on their second drink. Nobody pays attention to any of the rules. Well, that's the science John that the fake doctor uses to limit your imbibing of liquor and closing the bars and an o'clock they have said it before. In the past, I think we had galley say before in the past. Well, People don't make the best decisions after they've had alcohol, So that's why we gotta make sure they don't drink. So that's one of the few subjects that they're correct on. People absolutely do make poor decisions when they're drinking. And they can't control how people react and how people behave after the first or second drink. Imagine being a bartender where you're trying to make martinis. And you've got to be the mass police not gonna work not gonna happen. It's something like the mass off all that changes. If you got a food truck outside then then you're fine that everything's fight. I can't wait for the fake doctor to try to bring back Prohibition. Limited, Lucy, the fake doctor. Willing to take the blood light right out of your hand. Well, in your case, Randy the merlot. It's 2 49. Let's take a look at the roads. A BBC dependable traffic. Inglewood SIG Alert..

"Why weren't they working together in that? Because do they have that pool? We know LA has the pool we know the Lakers have the pool, but does rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson and the relationships out league have pool the Bill bring players there. Nick, what's the big sell right now for a free agent coming up this off season is still going to be playing with LeBron. Is it the organization I mean, LA city the totality of all of it? Like, LeBron said lebrons always been LeBron. Right. And he says harder to get guys come to Cleveland then to Miami. And so L A's better than both spots. If you don't care about the state tax aspect of it. It's the organization that the Lakers prior to five years ago had missed the playoffs five times in the history of the organization since they were the Minneapolis Lakers. Now, they're going to miss six years in a row. It's the city eight is the ability to compete for championships. And it's LeBron it's all of the above can that though Trump what they're trying to put together in the same city with the clippers. And I saw last night Cairo. Irving spent more time talking glowingly about Doc Rivers than I've heard him talk about anyone recently like the clippers and they're legend GM or for general team, president whatever's titles Jerry West has a track record of knowing how to do this a track record of success in building basketball teams. So it's not going to be easy. But I still believe the Lakers are going to get somebody to wingman for LeBron this summer, we're not quite sure who it is at the moment.

"And this bothers the crap out of me yet. Absolutely. Does you basically saying that like all the champions that came before Super Bowl champions? They're not champions, even though they want championship. As a person who has a history major, and who loves the history of the sport, especially for some Steeler fans. That NFL history doesn't start at one thousand nine hundred seventy it actually stole the first two Super Bowls were called NFL title games. NFL AFL championship games or something? And then later, they were they were renamed Super Bowl champions. Super Bowl won the Super Bowl too. I should say, but the first one that actually was called a Super Bowl as it was happening with Super Bowl three. Anyway, they ignore or the third AFL NFL tied at Jesus Bill. We get it. Anyways, they ignore the fact that the Steelers were terrible until nineteen seventy also known as the dark ages of the Steelers, I think they actually terrible until about seventy two or seventy three until they had that incredible draft. I knowledge both at the Packers dark ages the fifties and post Lombardi and home grim. I know it's not all Steeler, France. But it's still bothers to crap out of me the question. I ponder is in the title. All right. All right. So this guy writes, it's kind of funky since most NBA fans will count championships before the seventy six NBA ABA merger all to you can go you can go back further than that with the Los Angeles Lakers count, like a fucking be a championship is an NBA championship. It was the guy in the NBA L and those two things merged to form the NBA and like the Minneapolis Lakers. I think one the first like four NBA titles, but the year before that they want to be a championship. And for some reason that is counted as an NBA championship the Lakers won an NBA title before the NBA existed. Explain how that works anyways. This isn't going to be good. I wanted somebody who fucking know something. Greb as much more historical. I think if someone wants to argue that the league is totally different now than the real point of reference isn't one thousand nine hundred seventy it's nine hundred ninety four and the salary cap was introduced yet. Once you turn it into your fucking argument. Mass swarm of lines Browns and eagles fans, but in all honestly, it's really frustrating flatter interactive. When they say the eagles have never won anything. Yeah. That's bullshit. Well, this is from four years ago. You can't cherry pick which championship titles count at which don't the name of the trophy is arbitrary. It's not arbitrary at all it's it has a very specific line in the sand in it's one that the league itself, drew not friends fans. Trying to hold down the eagles and other teams the NFL decided nothing pre Super Bowl matters yet. Well, that's my question. Why? Cherry picking would be saying the eagles Packers pre Super Bowl championships cowb-, but the Browns don't arbitrary would be saying the package Packers NFL championships. Cow put the eagles.

"Them off in their own little yes this discussion by theirselves so this conversation pretty much reserved exclusively for them and really if you wanna just if you want me to pick one champion i'll save for michael jordan because he's had this home for a little while longer than i think he's bigger than most of this that is an interesting question i think we're having this in june i i would i would really be interested in what what people and i really do think it's going to be an age thing i really do think it'll be an age thing i think yeah i agree i think the longer you've been around you understand how long these franchises have been on what they look i don't want to get the old man drop just play it right now going back to george mike in the minneapolis lakers for crying out the mike in drill so look this this stuff happens okay the lakers have won championships forever and they've been around forever and lebron look lebron is lebron he's awesome he's fantastic he's all of these things and you're right he's either one or one a however you want to slice it but i'm still not sure he's bigger than the franchise because it's interesting i guess it depends on the talker having if you're talking about the nba as a whole and franchisee you're talking about the lakers and the celtics if you're talking about individuals you talk about jordan lebron and the other great so i guess it could be depending on the conversation you're having but just to say which is greater at that that's a that's why i i don't i don't think i can go there with you i do think some will i do think some will agree with you on to me this came this came from a practical place of when it comes to this decision will have any sort of affect because it john pointed this out if lebron james goes to the lakers for him to be considered an all time laker great he would have to accomplish much more than we know he's going to give given the time line but he would go there and be one of the best players to ever don a laker uniform he just wouldn't be one of the best lakers to my point i don't think that's the thing that does or should matter to lebron james because his accomplishment is superseded by agree that i agree you know who did you know member when dwight howard yes went to the lakers it was like he does not live up to i mean kobe was all all over that doesn't live up to the to the laker history you know isn't a true laker the laker light into what you do what you're coming here what you have to live up to to be a laker lebron if he shows up this this off season is the best player in the game and he's going to go down as one of the best if not the best of all time one or two in fact there's very few franchises you can have this discussion about the lakers are one of them and you guys on that old show that i don i can't remember the name it was a ge and ge or something i that old show that you ran that some guy got you in a couple of hall of fame i don't know what it is but there was a guy that you have on that show all the time that asked is this person a true this or true that and we'll get to some of those other franchises that may actually qualify in this discussion and that is straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless nationwide coverage on america's largest and.
