"Jessica's terrible squid. Take if you'd like to end this on a happy thing is it terrible. Come on jessica yet occupy right there. They can change color they can ship. They can shape shift. They can do a lot of things their literal aliens pablo explained all this guys. And you went squid from like and octopus. What's the difference right like squid. We're okay well there you go. They do that. Can't argue that nick. I've been checkmated. Jessica dan to check me for fifteen minutes. I kept hitting karate chop. What about what about trout. What about james. You did it with the sweden thirty seconds you got you got me so you know that my trout won't be good in the playoffs because you haven't seen an that is dan you are. You are arguing in a like. I would almost say political manner here. Which is twisting my words. That what i'm saying. I am not saying. I know something won't happen. I am saying i don't know that it will i. I'm saying you seem to be certain. Mike trout because he's one of the greatest regular season players we've ever seen that will carry over into the postseason. I'm saying i do not think sports work that way. I would like to see it to know it. I would i bet on him. Being great in the postseason. I would would i as i am. I a certain of it as i am with. Mookie betts of course. Of course not why would i be. I've seen one. You're arguing about the differences though between probabilities and certain tees and i would bet every time on the probabilities of historic greatness being historically great in moments that call for historic greatness. That's what that's how these people get remembered that way nick. You're the guy out here who's aren't always arguing about a. He's always arguing. That lebron is better than jordan. And both of those guys got all of these questions before they proved it to you that they could actually do it. Both of the guys are in the argument of greatest. You've ever seen in that sport. Got the same questions until people saw it and then we always back away from these guys when they do we always questioned the guy and then we can have the outliers. Whether it's chris. Paul or james harden or peyton manning we can have the outliers but the guys who are historically great are the ones who do it with excellence in the playoffs and then they show you. They've done it and they quiet all the critics. Yeah which is why jordan. It's such a shame. He never showed he could do without. Scotty i mean one nine plus my right stugatz without scotty like to see them win. Some without scotty. Yeah but also the guys like why is akeem. Olajuwon unquestionably greater than patrick ewing. Well their regular season numbers not that different. It's because one guy upped his game every bo- sees and one guy tended to get a little bit worse. What made why is dwayne way. One of the twenty five greatest players in league history. You ever want an mvp. Nope was the ever win a scoring data. One i think so. Why is he without a doubt one of the greatest players we've ever seen because of his finals performances particularly that i won like there is there's this is why we talked about as arguably the greatest player ever wasn't as regular season success. Nope you'd like to pursue. Mba's is because when other guys got worse. He got better. That's a real thing in sports. We see it all the time. Look what do you think dan. What did the mark jackson are you. Are you fully confident that he's going to have what is going to be considered a great career. I hear they're nuts. I have a hard time with him. Just in general because that it's a different math the way that he plays the sport like i am in general he confuses me and some of the same ways that been. Ben simmons did last night. I don't understand what it is that i'm watching with lamar jackson. Because i'm i'm watching a hybrid quarterback who's passing accuracy isn't the his passing strength is not what carries him all the time. Right but I is it also true. That sports are a little bit different almost across the board. Maybe except for baseball in the postseason. That not and i'm not talking about pressure i'm talking about how teams defend you schemes. All of it like it's the same thing that we we have seen that. Okay if you can build an entire game plan around stopping this one guy. Can he still kill you. And i think i to me. That stuff's interesting. And i know all the lebron folks on twitter were dying for me. The tweet me all weekend. Oh go after katie. The way people would go after lebron over six and overtime air balled the game winner and the answer to that is obviously the way people went out there. Lebron was illogical. And you shouldn't do that to anybody. But i listen i. I was listening to this morning. And i was like i totally agree with that. I i learned. I knew kevin durant could was unbelievable basketball. One of the greatest scores ever him going into golden state's did not teach me anything. This series me something so to me. That's fascinating. I find amazing after that series. The specifics not only did it. Teach you something but the respect for durant has been so universal and so consensus that the previous guy that you were doing that to jaanus. Everyone ignores that he was kind of great game to like. It's being ignored. That the that the winner in that game that you're questioning about his ability to do that in a game seven that he was also great in that game while playing an absurd number of also telling you katie also one in his own way. that's it. There is a difference. Dan when everyone knows you have to score fifty for the team. They have a chance. Everyone is geared up to try and stop you and you still go out there and you give them fifty. I mean it's a big difference. Wanted can can't fall back on steph. Clay won the mvp the year that everyone was wondering whether or not he could do that or not. Nick do you have anything else. Because i'm actually curious what it is that you thought the historical precedent of what you saw with. Ben simmons i i hate doing choke soft coward and i just thought that you're not going to get any one plant their flag on defending ben simmons today. Because of how weird it was to see someone who's allegedly superstar. You have to take him out of the game. Well yeah light and you guys can look it up. If i don't know when it was there was a game. This season against utah were ben. Simmons scored forty two points. Joel out there. And they ended up losing that game but it was he had forty two points almost a triple double and was dominant now. He is dominant against fraudulent rudy. Gobert there's another guy. Tell your advanced hell. When he had at tom haberstroh until adam. Tell me about what an mvp rudy go bears. That's another story. Let me stay on this Been got in his own head. I think that's pretty clear right. And i do think ben's in a rough spot in that if you took the fifteen best players in the league. The two worst to pair with ben johnson. Beat if you paired him with dame if you pair them with staffed pair them with any brimmer guy really unlock who he is and trey was five for twenty three. A lot of that was been. But i've never seen a guy takes zero shots in the fourth quarter in four straight games. We had antoine walker on the show and he brought up an amazing point. He was like how do you fall in love with basketball without enjoying shooting baskets he was like. That's the that's my favorite thing about the game. He was like how did you all in love. That is such a great name. Though that is such a great name to summon like antoine water. Tanto antoine walker win that he loved shooting lifetime without understanding. Why others don't like to shoot. Yeah but it's i think you i think you have to trade him. I also think that. If you're my pal. Daryl morey. It's a bitter pill..

"The saints. Drew brees melts down. Like the lincoln witch of the west water thrown on brady throws three exception running in running their down. And it's and it's incomplete and the first appearance. Think my i run. I don't want to let you out of here before giving us what you have on the nets. Do you have anything for us on the nets. They're the most interesting team in sports. Are they not. Oh they're very interesting. I think there are so many just meaty fascinating angles One is like they're going to try to do something that's not been done a modern nba history. Which is when title with an abjectly bad defense. But that's not like the interesting part. The interesting part to me is multilayered. One is about. James harden who people are to me revealing themselves went as whether or not they did or didn't watch hardin previously because we were like. Oh my god. He's reinvented himself. no yes. He led the league in assists one year and he's always been statistically speaking a top too often player in the league and the regular season every single year is what if they do win the title. Which i don't think they will are. Iding will all of a sudden we discussed where he already should be discussed as one of the twenty five greatest players ever but a lot of people. Don't just dismiss him because of the postseason failures but now that he's with a team that has just an abundance of offense that really fits to his offense strengths. Are people going to kind of recalibrate. What he didn't houston houston team by the way that one. I think more games than any team in the league in the regular season while he was there. And now's probably the worst basketball. The other thing. The most interesting thing is this. Like didn't durant leave the warriors because he wanted to win a title where it was unquestionably his team and he was unquestionably the lynch pin and he was unquestionably the guy and then he goes to brooklyn he brings kyrie with them and an awesome second banana but then immediately you know helps you know force the james harden trade and then unfortunately gets hurt and they went thirteen fourteen without without him and i just wonder how durant is experiencing all of this because if he wanted to be on the most talented possible with the best chance to win titles never would have left golden state so we obviously did this with more in mind than just my best chance to win my next ring and watching this unfold. The way it is to me is super fascinating. I also don't think they're going to get out of the east so i don't think much of this is gonna matter. You have seen what has happened in this country over the last five years or so. You usually don't hear this quite so overtly from a politician even by the diminish standards of today the republican senator ron johnson saying of capital rioters He says quote even though those thousands of people that were marching to the capital. We're trying to pressure people like me to vote the way they wanted me to vote. I knew those people that love this country that truly respect law enforcement will never do anything to break the law. And so i wasn't concerned he said on the radio talk show the joe pags show and then he turns and pivots to now. The tables been turned joe. This could get me in trouble. Had the tables been turned and president. Trump won the election and those were tens of thousands of black lives matter and t for protesters. I might have been a little concerned there. It's never that stupid. It's never that over in your own words. That clearly where yeah. I'm i'm totally racist. Well and by the way in today's wall street journal he doubled down they. He wrote a column Defending what he said i. The aiding getty's is a very very. I think the beginning of that quote when he was in the like he you know they weren't there to break the law. I i heard you read it. I don't have the quote in front of me. it's it is a very plain telling of for many people. It is almost impossible for a group mob of white people to break the law because the law is supposed to be what that group of white people wants so like. If like it's an oxymoron. Like this group of ex almost exclusively white people says this should be happening. Well that's the whole point. We've got the cops in the laws. Ford is to make sure that happens. And i think he just put a voice to it that guy i That guy has i think guy assumed a level of competence of that guy because of his name the status from and how he looks like if i just thought i'm like he probably hangs out with mitt romney like i don't really agree with his tax policy. I think but. I'm i bet he's not a crazy and turns out he's nuts. He's like the like the governor of tennessee. And tommy tucker bill like adds his crew not like the mitt romney angus king lego. You know we're a reagan conservative angus kings independent. But yeah. i stereotype that guy. Because he looks and sounds reasonable. And these from a state that i think's reasonable shows you what i know. What do you make of tub. Ville the idea that you would make your fame almost literally a top black bodies and then come upon these viewpoints. Oh so that's deeper than i was gonna take. I listen. I think the guy's a buffoon. But what i make of tom brady bill is you. Were talking about me. Getting sick of talking about sports and what i would do in my forties and fifties. I'll tell you what i might do in my forties and fifties become a liberal tommy. Tucker bill i can give a speech with the best of them. I can argue you in circles. I gotta figure in new york could be talking. I'm from missouri. Missouri is gonna have a democrat senator for a long time i might have to parachute into like connecticut or something but like if we are on the track of the qualifications for higher office are fame and the ability to like you know. Make a coherent argument. I just need. I don't know either a decade more on tv or another dozen appearances. On the dan le batard show podcast to really up. Mike you rating and i feel like i can at least prior politics minimum danger. Alright so politics law. Yeah yeah that. Used to be what i said i used to. I was going to be the american city when i was done with all this and then my one of my best friends from high school is the american city. Now he beat me do it youngest mayor of a major market in the country of kency's major market. But yeah. i mean. My dad was In politics running the union in kansas city helps A lot of the people get elected outta cancer. Yeah used to always say it was gonna do that. My wife objects and she says that that. I've got you know these stories that i tell about. You know being the casino gambling money. I don't have too scary bookies. That's those won't play on the political scene. I say they make me a populous. I can feel your pain america. I've been there. Don't say i'm a person of privilege. Maybe i was but gambled that privilege. Wet a knick rights honest honest initial reaction to reports skip bayless. Espn and fox were fighting over him to the tune of eight million dollars a year. That's dope man I think it's great Listen i think that you you. And i really disagree. I think on skip and we don't have to get into a deeply I skip has mastered his space. And i you know. I when i hear dan. Le batard is starting his own media empire funding it and i assume at some point. There's going to be some venture. I'm going to read a report. Some venture capitalist seeds it with forty million dollars. Yes when i see skip gets eight million a year. I'm like yes when it's stephen a. Do they also pay baby. Stephen i think baby stephen a. probably gets paid half what i paid as is like yes because as long as i'm in this space i want the salaries go up and up and up and like the you know if if the going rate for the best arguer in sports television is eight million. Then you know. I i can help the very least keep betting on the chiefs in the super bowl. I can keep doing that. Good talking to you. Thank you for stopping by. And it's not only because we've lost all of our espn guests. Yeah share might just lost my number in the seven years wing when we met in it when he invited me on seeing guys.

"This you know why. Because i think too. Many other players like damian lowered Lebron james perhaps one or two others embiid. They deserve to be in that converse. They deserved that award more. Die the g. you it all hold his playoff performance from last year and the fact that he won last year against him. Yeah i hold the fact that he hasn't been to the nba finals against him. Yes so so. Maybe stu gods is not going to. You know yachts kind of little cagey there because include lebron this. Because here's the. Here's what. I postulate to my friends in the media out their friends that come on this show and others that harp on this point. They're like the. Mvp is a regular season award and it is ridiculous to include. Lebron james finals performance. Last season is part of the reason why you should win this year's while at the same exact time those people saying and janas can't win another. Mvp until he does better in the playoffs. It's like last year's playoff performance can work against. You can't work for you. And now my contractual obligation of supporting lebron. James for league and bp has been fulfilled. So you're carrying forward. I liked that he continued. The whole janas is performing against him for this year's mvp it can't only work in one direction boys and girls james harden can't win another league and be until he gets the finals janas gambling. Another league can be jillian. Makes the finals lebron james's performances in the finals can't count it all. That's why nicola yokich is the league. Mvp that's gonna look good in the light of day nicola yokich when he wins league and be. You know what's going to happen with this year's mvp conversation mark it down. Lebron is going to be in second place all year with the person i rotated it was indeed presume it's going to be yokich. Your whole clan is gonna all of a sudden try to create jimmy butler nice little run and the second place and a list of guys who molly walked out of the playoffs. Every does my my whole crew have a shot at bringing up jim. Vp they going to bring him off the jimmy butler to mvp talk. They're going to be able to do it. Oh yeah i think so. I think that'll it'll it. And guess what. Jimmy butler will get credit for the playoffs last year. It'll be an amazing thing. Lebron james regular season award only this year's regular season we can have no context. We have no legacy. We're gonna have no anything whatsoever jimmy butler. It's like my god. You remember when he was so exhausted in game five of the finals. What a magical performance. Where for one night jimmy butler realized what it was like to be lebron james for fifteen years and it took so much out of him. He had nothing left in game. Six one of everyone's nick. I find one of the things. I find fascinating about our age. Difference is you didn't earn a i. Don't think young enough as a sports fan to absorb that we already did. You're sitting in the middle of being the greatest of the lebron defenders while looking around and being like really guys you guys are going to make it so that it's really this easy to defend the historic greatness. That doesn't have a whole lot of precedent in the sport because you're so busy criticizing him. You're too young to remember us doing this to michael jordan. Aren't you that we did it to michael jordan ball. He did the winning the same. Damn thing oh. I am too young to remember that like living through it. I've gone back in you know kind of educated myself cellphone. I am not too young to remember. In two thousand fifteen dan lebatardshow declaring triumphantly. Miami got the best of lebron. James ended at era was clearly over. Because the love of his life steph curry had burst onto the scene and broken basketball and that lebron was clearly on the down slope that my friend is your version of my tom. brady take. That's one that will haunt you and living in..

"I took the heat. But i want i needed something. I needed something to violate corporate policy in a way. That wasn't going to get me fired. You were grinding cover for each other. But that's the thing you you there's no question about it. I needed something. I had nothing nothing. And so i had to go to foxsports to go get it while i appreciate that and i do wanna say mike knows this a by the way. Do you know this dan. The first time mike ryan i ever met in person he and his wife stayed at my house story. Burnside tell me that that story. I want to hear this story. Why is it true story. Why why it was weird we were. We were fans of each other's work and we got to know each other a little bit through just texting. And we were lamar wife. And i were literally booking a trip to new york when nick volunteered. Hey man whenever you're in new york you've got a place to stay where we'll go out and i'm like well shit. We'll take us over super awkward. You offer you guys aren't always you guys are always adult. You're adults now. That is something that that nineteen year olds do. But it's weird thing. Is i live. I live off harlem in a decent size house. One of the things. That sucks about new york is even if you have friends. They usually live an apartment. So you can't you know new york city it's a pain. It's costs a ton of money for a hotel. Remind easley and my son was off in college so we have a big house with an extra bedroom. So i was like come. Stay with me and then i right when they got there. I was like a walk into the bodega to buy beers walking down the street meeting everybody. But it's actually a complement to your guy show. Because i listened to the local hour at least and sometimes the whole show every day when i was in la. I would go to the same diner right. When i got there to eat breakfast curse superfan. You're a superfan we actually met. We hung out before in la. We had a good time. Wait a minute before crashing. I did not know this so hold on a second nick. So you're like you because you've arrived in a fairly wonderful way.

"Wherever that's my take you deemed me the next afternoon and you mentioned it on your show. It was the first time you and i had ever any connection and it was the first time nationally. Anyone had ever acknowledged anything. I done in that way other than like breaking news and houston and i've always wondered because it wasn't put out on the internet. Were you just watching at this one one night. Did someone tell you like you. Probably don't remember. But for me i called. This is probably poor form. Icecream shot at your damn to me. Texted it to everyone. I knew was like blevins. Our buddy my text me and was like labradors talk much on his show. And i was like i couldn't figure out how you would even come across it but it was a similar moment of my career now that that That is touching that makes me feel all hugely flattered. I don't remember the details. Of how i came upon it but i will tell you that the specifics of why i remember it is because i've been trying to walk past televisions all my life and have someone walked that high wire with that degree of difficulty on something as stupid sports like you. You not only made an argument like it. Just it's real hard unless you're super informed and you can just hit people overhead with With the research. Like i just specifically remember wherever it is that i was hearing it. I don't remember where i heard it. I'm like man. This guy inundated us with about three minutes of information. That's not disputable in a in a framework that doesn't allow for that. The conversation on television can't be like that you know this you've learned it no matter how good you are doing it. Those are tight spaces that you can't get into the deep stuff where you're saying something like cam. Newton doesn't get calls because he's black and then anyone here's anything you have to say after that i would imagine and it's the stuff that i get the most satisfaction from like eating batty's fulfilling that must be too because that's the most challenging thing to work outside of the framework of the confines of television to actually give complicated thoughts that aren't bite-size that. Make people think it where. I'm fortunate to go back to the very beginning about like my parents like the insistence on education and like being learning. It's where it's you can't do that unless you actually have like a big an i giant gaps of knowledge elsewhere. But i know a lot about race in america. I know a lot about american history. Those are like kind of my to passionate areas of them in sports and so the like it allows me to talk about that in a very i think unique way and i also think it's i think it is important that there are and this is why you're shows have always been important. It's important that there are people saying things that the people that don't wanna hear it can't dismiss as well of course they think that it's it's like because i'm heart sounds weird i'm harder to dismiss because i'm a white guy and it shouldn't be the case but there is a level of it is important This it is important for the majority to amplify the minority viewpoint if they truly believe it because there are certain people serbia will never be reached there. Certain people who might be reachable. But they're more likely to be reachable at times by me i. Bonnie even obama money is even more eloquent. Oh he ends. I've ever seen like..

"To get stuck in that. Your your journalism saw. You came up to the radio so the newspaper guys didn't have the same respect for you. And and you came into fox sports and the entire. Espn is popularly by newspaper. Guys there are radio guys. They're radio guys are still god's radio guys are sodano you know. That's the only reason. I'm talking to you about it. Because i find it interesting that you had sort of like an entwined path and you arrived in a place where out of kansas city as the white guy you were giving the opinions that i hope that life experience would allow him to have given on behalf of his people and i was always look man. I was an ally for that dude. I got very manage ally. I tried to support the things that he was about and not make him an uncle tom. But we've gotten into the. He's gotten into his fifties now.

I don't know any at this point. I don't know. I don't know what anyone actually believes anymore. I think you can learn a lot about what happened at the capitol by thinking about kyrie irving and by that i mean this. I think anybody if they spend enough time online in the wrong corners of the internet without a strong base of knowledge facts and information to begin with can get what i would call toxic internet ryan and like kyrie's isn't dense hype kyrie's isn't damaging but inquiry truly did believe the earth is flat..

"But i had a conversation longtime ago with jason whitlock about what everything was becoming twitter and our beloved newspapers and them and i remember telling him specifically. Oh jason we lost. We lost a long time ago. These these things that you're believing in journalistically. The things exist in a newspaper like that day is passed by it is now the future has arrived and we have been left behind. I never understood. Nick why it is that He was the black guy in kansas city. Espousing largely white viewpoints. You were the white guy in kansas city. Espousing largely black viewpoints. You didn't have the newspaper pedigree but you were absolutely every bit as good as he was and you were much younger. I was younger. And i don't know i do think there is an element of people. Want to be respected by the people. They care about the most. And i like i. I don't. I don't know you very well. At all. Dan except for from afar from long time. We spent a little bit of time together. A and we've texans up. But i would imagine like when you were columnist aspiring to be columnist of the year compliment from anyone. We're nice but if bob ryan since at the time i think it would have been a telegram would have been telling you grab something phonograph if he was like wow read the column that that had a special place for you and i do think that it can be tough. Where if there are you want to call it the barbershop or the people you grew up with whatever it is if those are the people who dislike some of your opinions the most i ain't that can that can be wounded.

"And i'm i'm asking this question with genuine curiosity. I don't even know how. Many landmines there are around it for you but jason whitlock. I remember him saying one time. There are no people who dislike jason whitlock. they're only people who don't know jason wedlock and that. That may have been true true once upon a time. But i feel i don't feel like he's gone off the deep end. I haven't talked to him in a long time. But it's been it's bummed me out. What's what's happened with him in terms. I know i don't like him so there's one true story. Quick story jason. Also once wrote when someone back when jason james wants time you might not know. This was an excellent sports columnist. You could argue you and jason at one point in time the two best in the country. One time jason was when a mailbag column. And this was i would. Argument is writing. Had waxed or waned whichever the one getting worse is a bit and someone was like you know jason. I love your writing. But it seems like you don't put a point on your columns like they that you don't really put an end in conclusion and his response was. I know this is going to sound arrogant. But i've heard that criticism my whole career people are just upset. My columns are over and that was a good encapsulation like he doesn't get it. It's like no. It's actually just not great again piece. Actually you just think people are like. Where's more jason. That's great i. Actually that's comedic -ly perfect. I love so jason. And i both were in kansas city and fairness to him when i got there. He was the biggest not making jokers figuratively. The biggest fish in the pond. And i was the night guy. And i also disagreed with a lot of his non-sports takes and so i took a lot of shots so he didn't like me game city. We somehow seemingly reconciled because he did his farewell show on my show but then like six months later he called into my show uninvited and basically did twenty minutes on me about how.

Our fix of sports who wanted to get close to the super bowl wanted to get close to sports and we can't use. Espn people to do it anymore. So nick right is the guy we have gone to. And i've long been in admire of his work. He got into the game pretty young. He's been very good at this. He's funny in that he's very self aware and he is introspective. He understands his journey is super interesting. How it is that. He got where it is that he got but one of the reasons that i wanted to talk to him. And i hope i'm not betraying. Any intimacies is because he has been trying to be the king of this game for a long time. It's important to him to be the guy. Who is the mightiest of all the takers. It's so important to him. Mike that i have come to realize that he is very happy. This is through sources. I will not betray any of the confidences that gave me this information. I don't think he'll even find it to be much of betrayal. That nick right is happy. That bomani jones is now in his forties. Because now nick right feels. He's got his rightful claim to be the greatest of the takers under forty said mic right. Feels like he is now somebody who has his own decade in terms of being a sports opinion guy. Now that bomani jones has moved on to the old man taker of being in his forties. So i wanted to talk to him about his story. And we'll talk about it honestly and then you will make your own determination about whether he is the best taker in the business under the age of forty in sports nick. What do you regard as the most interesting parts of your story journey being the first person on the lebron james is the goat corner. I think that defines me as a person as a man as a take artists I think i think my family. I think because it's the family that i grew up with meaning like my mom. Dad and sister zaveri interesting. You know unit and in the family. I now my wife and our three kids. I think i think that tells you the story of how i became me for those who don't know.

"Dot com they do these huge web series covering it but I realized there's really nothing covering teen bodybuilding. So I started uploading videos on Youtube just Basically. To store my contests footage on there just of contests footage and just forget about it. It was just there. So I can look back at it kind of like dropbox or Google docs and one day look back at it and I noticed I had a pretty good amount of views and subscribers built up from it and I was Kinda shocked. But then it kind of clicked I love public speaking love it love speaking in front of a camera and I think I'm pretty good at breaking things down in a unique way when it comes to giving. Information out. So I just decided you know what? I'm going to create a platform to document teen bodybuilding since there isn't one and it'll be youtube and I started my channel and it started interacting and the rest was history though. For people out there right now like. Youtube and Twenty Twenty It seems like it's probably going to be like damn near impossible to get big now just because the the spaces and there's so much noise going on right What advice do you have somebody specifically in the fitness realm to help build their? Youtube. Channel. Run. I was listening I like jogging I don't run away from. The best advice I can give you. There's there's no real tricks of trade anymore. It's a crazy time right now. So you're you're dealing with an industry that's so overly saturated. You're doing with algorithms now on Youtube Instagram, facebook medias that work against you even let your content get to your organic followers anymore everything's we're GonNa get you, and then there's no real trend to follow either on one side of fitness youtube, you have guys give it informative lifting. Tips on the other side you have Larry wheels hitting PR's and then the other side you have just gimmicky shit with people pulling up in like supercars doing backflips and crazy stuff like that. That's just kind of eye and goes viral. So there's not one real right track to jump on. So my advice now would be my advice was back when I first started youtube and what it has always been, which is decide what you're passionate about and pursue that. Passionately and then just use youtube as a way to share that passion boom. That's it. If you do that, you'll never go wrong because you may run into a point where you're not getting views things are not picking up it's not going well, you're not going to care because you're just following your passion first and foremost, and then eventually you keep doing that enough you never know something could finally pick up. Do you think it's like a viable option anymore these days to just rely just on youtube like ad revenue for somebody to like. Because what I'm thinking is like, okay like even doing all this right now like. In so much work and attention into this podcast. That is very much obviously worth it. Is that worth these days to put that much time and energy into a Youtube Channel? No. Not just first rate revenue and actually. GRADUATE ASK THAT Starting to Youtube Channel. For the sake of revenue and making money is an absolute guarantee to failure. I've said that before a billion times and still stand by if you're starting youtube channel to make money, you're gonNA fail because already your heads going to be in the wrong place and you're going to be number focus you be focusing on the numbers and those numbers do not climb fast and you're gonNA get discouraged and you're getting fed up and you're going to quit and also the the viewers are going to be able to tell that your content is not genuine. There's something about Content when is genuinely creative and it's coming from a passion it just feels different. It sits with you different and you're not going to have that so. Do not focus on the money at all and don't get an youtube for the sake of making money and also is it feasible? So in theory yes like I still make money off my youtube channel and even when I start uploading more, see that money go up again but you gotta get a pretty big channel to make sufficient money. Now you know nowadays it's like okay YouTube. Cool. But we're really relying on sponsors relying on our own businesses our own sites whether you coaching programs run a clothing line whatever it may be. Other endorsements, there's other things that come from the youtube channel that make us money. So we're not really focus too much on the ad revenue because that's getting smaller and smaller and smaller companies are paying less and less money because ads are becoming less and less effective at targeting was huge in two thousand and fifteen. It's quickly becoming saturated and not as effective anymore. So the paying less and less. So the CPM's are less and less. And then like I said, the Algorithms are working against you you know and. Now you've got two more hoops to get monetize as a new channel and you gotta You I forget what it is now, but you gotta reach a minimum amount of views. And Wash time every single month stay monetize. It's something like like I think like now nine thousand minutes or some something that sounds something like that and then like ten. Or maybe it's just like one thousand subscribers right? But yeah, I guess, yeah the the barrier of entry. Is getting a little bit higher which actually appreciate because I don't think you know I I think the harder it is actually get monetize I think it will be like the market be less saturated but as far as being a viable option of like you know 'cause like my daughter is twelve years old and like most kids she's like I just wanted to youtube. It's like it's going to take a little bit more than just making like a youtube channel. Take stuff like social media. So D is Are you like you and Arianna the only two that run your social media or the only ones that run it and. What you said I want to go back to what you said about it kind of. The tighter standards for getting monetize kind of weeding out a lot of the undeserving content. That is true as an ideal but I don't think it's working that way in practice because I think what's happening is you're getting. Less, and less efficiency from ad targeting. So people are paying less and less and less and went up resulting is the few companies that have the money to spend are going to start becoming very choosy in what kind of channels, what kind of content they do put their ads into, and then what youtube ends up doing and also should meet isn't doing as they end up conforming this algorithm that's GonNa eventually favor the sort of videos and we're already starting to see this a little bit. Now, you're starting to see more censorship happing youtube now. Because it needs to appeal to advertisers and then you're also seeing and it's I think I think it's still a little bit more robotic right now I don't think it's necessarily someone's favourite tting certain videos but I think this is the direction could very easily go in and is starting to go in where The type of content. Genres, that do. Make money. Investors just want investor add sense into that. So therefore, Youtube is going to start favoring those and those are going to be recommended videos in the in the videos got circuit in the field and what you're going to see is entire genre start getting fizzled out and pushed off to the side. So initially started off with okay cool. We're making it so you can't just be anybody in jump onto youtube but now you're gonNA make. Okay. Even if you're a deserving channel, you just don't fit the criteria of advertisement so you gotta get shoved off to the side. Okay. Cool. It looks like we got a call now right? All right, let's see..

"Series? This is. I guess we should settle in a little bit on the Bra because that's kind of become your thing. I had to hit. A body brought us. Try to hit them up. It'd be like damn man where you coming home like that man. You know what I'm saying. He said all those nice things about him after he crush me and I started following on twitter, assuming he'd see what a big Fan I was. See that my tweets from nine a tweet to you nine years ago when you were I'm sure just a visceral stringer bell that I found that I said I thought Brodie was the best character, and I assumed he d like Yo man. All love is giving you a hard time with Lebron. Appreciate Nope, no DM and continues to this moment to respond to folks who tweet about me laughing at me like. This just brutal. Racist. He's passionate on the matter, right. He? He is very serious about this. But the Jordan dot was interesting time to be you of this because I guess I don't have a great head low where you are a Mike because I, am on the Mike is the greatest program like I. Don't think the idea of broad is a great is is totally ridiculous, but this Jordan was just something that we just don't have a substitute for so where where are you on? Mike himself so I think it's a great question. And I think, and this is one of the things that I. do think differentiates the folks that are on the Lebron side of the argument and some of the folks I'm not talking about you, but some of the folks on the Jordan side of the argument folks such as myself. Who Think Lebron's greatest player ever. All of us say listen. You can make a case for Lebron, but the case for Jordan is not a bad one, and I would argue there's a third person who should always be mentioned in Kareem, and I think that as long as those are your top three. You can make a case for any of them, and it makes sense. I think Lebron's a little bit better and I think he's done it in a tougher era and I think he's obviously for a longer period of time. What was so fascinating during the Jordan doc was how many of the Jordan folks were using it as an attempt. Attempt to bring up, Lebron. Not the other way around and one of the big distinctions is there are a lot of Jordan. Folks that are still on the is Lebron actually even top five. In fact when you think about it. He's behind Kobe. In fact when you really think about it. I'm not sure if he's top ten. Nobody does that to Mike now. One good argue you don't do it to Mike. Because you can't I would argue you don't do it to Mike because you can't do it to Lebron, but it's a very different a some of the Jordan folks. Folks are offended that it's a discussion and another thing your network did that I thought was really interesting. was that poll the when it was seventy? Six percent of the public, says Michael Jordan's the greatest player ever, and we talked about it on my television show, and it was phrased to me is like that I should be wounded by it and I said. I'm be honest with you I. Look at that is a massive success for me. Personally because I believe that when I said Lebron's greatest player ever, which was June of two thousand sixteen after game seven against the warriors. Warriors I think that was a two percent opinion. I think the furthest anyone was going out on. The Ledge was Lebron. Maybe one day will be and the fact that now one in four basketball fans are like no, it's not Jordan. I feel like we're facing the way marijuana legalization paste. It was like five percent support, then all of a sudden thirty five percent support, and before you know it once they win this title and the next one. It'll be like sixty five percent. Yeah, he's a go a little bit log. It'd be like if you will the Braga married. Okay got it is. Not. Played. I saw the twinkle in your eyes. Get my finger coming for me. Graduate Progress by gradual progress absolutely. Well done. I think also this is where this gets interesting. Because you and I are about five years apart in age, I'm five years old and they'll. Five years matter a lot in the course of this discussion, because it affects the way that you consume my jaw right so like I don't remember a world without. Michael Jordan but I do remember world before Michael Jordan the champion like I remember world before everything by around. Around Mike was bill you born into the world, at least in terms of like having awareness and an old enough to like really grasp was going on I. Mea Finals! I vividly remember our Bulls Lakers like the Super Bowl. I vividly remembers the I called the art monk Super Bowl Washington buffalo like that that that very very early nineties the times. I, so you're right I have no recollection of Jordan getting beat. beat by the Pistons because I was too young to be out. I guess forming memories. Yeah, he's the establishment to you. You know he is that which you have inherited in a small way that kind of applies to me also, but like we'll abroad I remember like around nine zero nine in there I was all the Lebron's the best player I've ever seen, and I had very technical arguments that could back it. It, up I, was like name. What is it that Jordan does better than Lebron right like and I could go through and I could get this long list of everything. It was Lebron. Does Jordan taste to a place that makes me somewhat uncomfortable. Which is that I? Don't get too deep into touchy feelies in making analysis, but there is something to this i. Am a sociopathic killer thing that has real benefits. A NBA player it helps, it goes places and he weaponize. Is that in a way that? At the margins it winds up mattering I. Feel is the best way to put it. I, agree with that I. also agree that Jordan has the best story like this is why it was good that Phil walked away and didn't come back because I. Don't believe the Bulls in ninety nine. We're going to win a title now. I do think they could have gotten. There minded. Damn Nick Scott there as an eight seed. So you assume the Bulls make the playoffs Knicks. Missed the playoffs though I think they could have. Have Gotten there I. Don't think they would've had an answer for Dunkin Robinson. PIP wouldn't have been there. Rodman wasn't the same guy so even on the strength of Jordan alone they get there, but and I would have found that listen. I'm of the belief that winning as much as you can win. It always helps you know some people are of the belief. If you'RE GONNA, lose the worst thing you can do is lose in the championship round as.

"That's right which I don't know what's worse being historically underrated or everyone in the world acknowledging. Well he's underrated because everyone hates it. Yes saying like he's he's famous for two things. Is One of your famous for people. Underrating him and people not liking. You mentioned Sean Kemp. This is not at all. I'm not taking a shot at anybody but I was watching your very successful network the other day and this is on the heels of and this was not. Espn's volt when they do. The poll and Michael Jordan Wins Best College Basketball Player. Ever which made me realize if you put up a poll. Who's the best white basketball player ever? Jordan? Win that to player ever during win that too and they were doing it was on the anniversary of the starks. Dunk the iconic starks dunk. And so they're doing the top ten playoff dunks ever and number ten was the list blister Shawn Kemp Alton lister in the history on it's all of his and I was like man what could be number one man Jordan's weak little baseline dunk over. You and I'm like you gotta be kidding me man number one year ago he gonNa win that he's going to win. We're going to say that's the greatest playoff dunk ever so I appreciate it. The list and it reminded me of some dunks. I had forgotten including a Kobe dunk from playoffs against the timber. Wolves where he goes baseline does like the nurse that was. I had forgotten about that. That was unbelievable. But when you said Shawn Kemp I immediately thought of the dunk overall lister. Well the number of playoff doug like Jordan. Doug isn't even the number one bulls dunk in playoff history. I really can't think anything that's top. The disrespect typically pippen Yemen. Honestly I feel like we need to go back and relitigate a lot of things with those nineties Knicks because Scottie Pippin Yang. Doing threw him on the ground. Put his chest tickles in his face and nobody fought well. Listen I'm a? I'm an extremist on this. I think we might need to relitigate a lot of nine these basketball because it the nineties were over represented in that fifty greatest of the last fifty. Because it's the era we were in and there were no listen. I think Charles I again. I'm so you talk about what's worse junkies we are. I rewired games. Five in seven of the ninety-three Western Conference finals the other day. That'll being Seattle. Were Chuck had the best game of his career in game five and then topped it in game. Seven like Charles might be have become a little underrated and they're obviously amazing amazing. Clare's of that era but because of the expansion it was basically one star per team. Like that's why the Bulls in in the jazz. Were part of the reason they were. Such juggernauts is they. Were some of the only teams with two hall of Famers like people talk about the Knicks. And it's like man. The second best player on that team was a guy who had a fake a broken wrist in order to not get caught in John starks when he first came around and those Pacers seems folks. I'm sorry those were not great teams like because if your best players Reggie H is hard for me to believe. You're a great team with the Davis brothers and the Dunkin Dutchman but a lot of that I think we have to revisit a bit all right so the Pacers working right now on the pedals and so they get to be interesting. Is the early part of the nineties. Was Larry Brown as the coach and there are bonus points for Larry Brown being your coach right because he is to me just. We're talking about just coaching basketball. Lightnings the best ever and you take sales hotel me you take give somebody twelve random guys and you gotta make them into a basketball team. Larry Brown is they do it so I thought that the teams that he took to the conference finals The one that the one that lost to the Nixon and the one that lost the magic those teams. Not Really. You know that. Good now when you get to that second set of cheese okay. So Larry Bird genes. They went to the conference finals three years in a row. Now we're adding to its Reggie. It's a better version reggie. It's a better version of Rick Smits. Now you're adding like your Jalen. Rose a twenty four game score when he's at age twenty five. You're adding more Jackson who for what you needed at the time of. Playing Ninety Basketball Mark Jackson. The Guy for you to have your bringing like Sam Perkins off the. What would he twists or does it corn rows at that point for Sam? That is a very good question because that was when we started to realize shall we say how Sam Perkins gets down like. I felt like we got a better handle on his lifestyle as his career went and he started to give less than a day. So No. That's here's the thing about those pacers and you could say in a similar way the Knicks and this is where I should give him credit even they only had the one hall of Famer they were really well constructed rosters. You had what you needed to fill out the rest of it and I think your point about the aging Mark Jackson still being weapons especially until they made it illegal for the thirteen. Lean back down. Yes absolutely I mean that's totally fair. Critique Dairy Wiki like like they had guys right. I think that if they had won a championship which would have been asking a lot. We would look at them like. It's almost unfair. Honestly they would be more in line with the two thousand four Pistons. Because I'm not as wild about Reggie Miller as other people are thank you and I are. Kinda in the same camp or I feel like it. Reggie Miller has those twenty five points in the fourth quarter in game five of the Eastern Conference finals in one thousand nine hundred four and he has them against the Orlando Magic. Reggie Miller is not going to hall of Fame Right. He did it against the Knicks at a time where that mattered very much in elevated him to the status of Clutch player that was then reinforced by what he did in the late nineties. Like what he did in ninety eight against the Bulls and stuff like that like got built up after that now. What I think is interesting about the.

Nick Wright on Kevin Durant throwing shade at LeBron, talks paying Dak Prescott and more

"Wanna go to Nick ride on this. Kevin Durant for the second time in two weeks has taken a shot at LeBron James called him toxic plan with LeBron's toxic. And then yesterday mentioned all these great players all time and put kyri in and not LeBron. So Nick, right. First things first, we the cower global satellite network. Let's talk about that. I mean, what what did you make Durand comment? I don't think they're a coincidence. Neck. I think he I think he is deeply bothered that he moved to Golden State won a bunch of titles and people still don't put them above. Lebron? That's my take. There is obviously indefinitely some insecurity factor. As far as what more do you want me to do? I I wanted to finals I won the finals with jump shot a jump shot over LeBron. I won the finals the next year with a jump shot in the exact same place. But as you just said, just objectively speaking, he's not better people who know basketball. No, he's not better. But I also think listening saying Kobe's one of the two greatest players of all time isn't absurdity Kobi's as great as he was not one of the two best players of his era. That's LeBron and Dunkin, but that's neither here nor there but about a year ago. Kevin Durant on one of his many podcasts. Bill Simmons talked about the different way that he and LeBron go about their off-season preparation, and he said something I thought was really telling he said LeBron works on his body. I work on my game. As if he didn't see that. Lebron? Was working on his body in order to prolong how long he can play the game. Because the guys seem mentioned are guys that I understand like whether it's footwork worrying Kyrie's case raw dribbling skill or touch on a jump shot. They all might have something on LeBron will the bronze got on. Everybody is the body. He's put together which has allowed him to not only get to the rim. But to be on injured. I don't think that's something from a basketball perspective Durant, fully respects. Yeah. Because it is obviously the opposite of what he has Durant has made the most anyone could ever make with a muscle massive around what I have which is remarkable feat. But it is not comparable to what we see for most other NBA stars. By the way, there's a rumor today colline Kevin Durant to the clippers again, I'll believe Durant's gonna leave. I don't think he has the guts to leave Golden State because he would get crushed. And if he goes to LA and LeBron gets Anthony Davis and he's on the second best team in LA. It's a bad look for him. I don't buy this move. Do you buy it? Are. So I do think I disagree with you. I think Kevin Durant is going to leave. I think he not only has the guts sleeve. I think leaving could it be the only thing to enhance his standing in the league. But the only thing if he leaves he I believe he can't do or would be crazy to do is injuring to another situation where we don't know who the best player is that. So that means he he's already in one of only a handful of situations. He could be in. We're at teammate is arguably better in Steph. So we can't go to the Lakers. And that also means he can't team up with Kawai Jaanus, Anthony Davis LeBron. That's it. So if if it's about winning championships, obviously should stay in Golden State.
