"From the UC women's basketball team. Set a school record earlier today. Scoring 51 points in a victory at East Carolina 51 points. The women's college basketball record is 60. So she only missed that by nine points. She's the first woman in Cincinnati history to score 50 or more in a game. She's one of two bear cats to do it. Oscar Robertson, the other Oscar did it often He had six games with 50 or more points, but just incredible performance. Congratulations to Omari Thomas 51 points without a three point shot. She is an interior player. She was 20 for 27 from the floor 11 for 13 from Alliance. He had 12 rebounds. 10 on the offensive end to score 51 points tonight. She's up to 23.4 her senior year, and that is ninth best in the country. So that leads to this

Um, I think you've got to understand.

Because things can change on a dime. And you want to make sure that your cover so I would tell you the capital structure is gonna be a little bit more important, But you better have that legal background well embedded in. This is the assumption that perhaps or my presumption that recoveries they're not gonna be as robust this time around, Given how much debt has been incurred and given some of the erosion with Cho is some of the covenant light loans that we have seen. How much lower will recoveries be? And how much spear sir? Will the battle be over? Who gets what? I think recovers. I'll definitely be lower. And I think fights are gonna be absolutely insane because everybody's gonna be fighting over smaller pie. So that's why this vote. This is really where are you the capital structure, But you're gonna have lower recoveries. It's It's hard for you not to because of what you said, which is that people have taken on more debt.

The execution of that plan is gonna be kind of hard. Look, we're gonna do everything we can. And I think we've got probably, you know, our Big three, which is Big second to none, At least in the East s O. I think we'll have a pretty good shot. I think everybody's pretty excited. I think the hard part was really Re signing Yonas and the fact that we were able to do that is actually great for Milwaukee. It's great for small market teams, but more ordinates Great for Artie.

In Black America: Spencer Haywood

"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet.

"Yeah. Other than him. I mean, he was unique. But it just dawned on me when I saw this list with James harden in it's an it's an incredible streak for James harden. But it's over you know, he's had twenty eight last night. But then you look at wilt he had sixty five consecutive games where scored at least thirty points. Yes. Mclovin. There's one image of Oscar Robertson. I don't know if you guys know this one, he's grabbing a rebound. He's six feet in the air and is lakes splinter that was it Cincinnati. I have that picture autographed by the big, oh, he's back. That's one thing where you see while he's physically superior to every person on that court that that's my lasting image of Oscar Robertson was he dominant was he liked the Kobe of his generation. I remember. Okay. So I saw him with the Cincinnati royals, and this is the latter part of his career Cincinnati. And then he was traded to Milwaukee, it Milwaukee he wasn't that explosive point guard anymore, but Oscar was so much at six five and a point guard back then that was unique and he was physically dominating against players, but he didn't play on a good team. And nobody went to see the Cincinnati royals. Folks. More people saw him as Cincinnati bearcat, then Cincinnati Royal because I remember going to games to see the opposition come to town. But for all of these people who cover the NBA, they're very few who saw Oscar Robertson play unless you saw him in Milwaukee, and he led Milwaukee with Louison door to an NBA title. But the only reason why he's recognized or remembered is because he averaged a triple double, I don't I don't mean to diminish the big O as much as I want to elevate will Chamberlain or, you know, want to know why he's not included in any conversation. When it comes to great big men. It's Kareem Akeem. Shack. And then. Oh, yeah. We'll we'll but. Oh, yeah. Wilt was so dominating. And I just don't think that he he was a great volleyball player they outlawed the dunk because will Chamberlain. He played with the globe truck. Like, he was just a unique guy. But if it feels like we're we were caught up more in wilt, and the number of women that he hooked up with like or even a movie, you know, he was in a movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger. But but it felt like it still feels like you look back on wilt, and we don't acknowledge those stats. Oh, well, well, wait a minute. We acknowledged Babe Ruth stats. Yes. Mclovin. Yeah. No. I in Philly will special to be his Overbrook, and Kansas like he was a track athlete to like. He was everybody athlete if any shorter play. Right. Well, he was up there. You know, when you when you think of Zion Williamson, you know, luau cinder was Zion. Williamson because you got him out of New York. And he went to Los Angeles to play for UCLA. Now how he got there. All right. Maybe you'd have a question or two, but will ends up going to Kansas out of Philadelphia. He was he was the Zion. Williamson. Or maybe we should say that Zion is the, you know, the Lew Alcindor will Chamberlain, you know, when they were coming up. I was reading about them. You didn't see him. But I remember at power memorial seeing luau cinder never saw him in person. I saw him when he got to the NBA. In fact, I saw the first game he played against Bill Walton they played at the university of Dayton. And so I got to see a lot of Kareem throughout his career. But in high school it was such a big deal and then his freshman team. At UCLA beats the varsity team in the varsity team won the national championship. Like that's big time stuff zion's, a wonderful player in college and certainly in high school, but you forget like Lew Alcindor to me was is still underrated. He's the most graceful basketball player I've ever seen and he is seven feet two inches tall. Explain that. All right. We'll take a break. Chris Mannix will join us. We'll talk about LeBron's latest comments. How do you lose? To memphis. Can you hit the activator button? Again. I got to get him a Johnny oh Twitter button. Maybe that'll help him there.

Ashton bounces it down low Watson inside, and he exerted his all kinds of physical energy. But he got the ball of the rim up and over the top of a three point gave again a great play. Call by Cooley. Keep it simple. Get it to your big guy down. Low a nice physical play again to try and change the tide here in the first half. Marshall right side of the lane is running shot is off the glass and good. Haven't heard a whole lot of Marshall since the early stages of the game. And a great move there. He has such good touches the one hand push shot off the glass back. They go to watch on the left block turnaround shot back iron. No, good rebound. Four and take it out of the air by Jones goes eight rule five point lead. And the basketball comes good driving in the lane eurostepped shop locked away by Watson wasn't even a eurostepped as much as. Gazelle was just hopping across the lane. The got knocked over the end live. Well, we talked about Scruggs and Gooden to the leading score is on his team being relatively quiet in the first half. I liked the aggressive move thereby Gooden getting to the basket really been the story line for the musketeers in this half, forcing the issue getting into that paint. Here's scrubs up on top two men ought to be come here side for goodness. Open three pointers on the way in good on a are doing everything. Right. Just the ball movement. Whatever they are seeing defensively from the friars. They are countering it inside outside. Just a perfect execution in the early stages of the second half out here. At the dunk is stunned the home team down by eight one three from a leak white is a brick and the rebound again down the Tyree. Jones for Xavier in the problem here with friars is they're just not a high scoring team. If they get down late in the game. They just don't have the firepower to get back into it partial for three and he got it to fall for twenty three feet away. There's at other time how call Brett Cooley. He's got he's got a call. It before this team. This thing gets too far away from them. They're down eleven points. And it's just an offensive juggernaut right now for the musketeers biggest lead.

"He came back when a championship. And now that he's left again, people are pissed, but you it's got to be a dozen years old. Now, if not it might even be older, but you read a great review essay a cult locker room. Liberty for reason that talked about kind of it was based on Oscar Robertson of a memoir of Oscar by Oscar Robertson, one by dick Allen, the baseball player, the Phillies player and White Sox player that you mentioned and a biography of Joe Nemeth, and it was called locker room liberty, and it was really about the emergence of athletes who were getting paid something approaching what they were actually worth talk a little bit about how that came about. And why that why that drives such mean responses or did for a long time in fans did for low type for sure. I came about this, you know, on some ways neck, even our book is all an exploration of why were the seventies? So awesome and terrible and his never ending supply of answers to to that. But one of the ways that it was super awesome were these crazy athletes, professional athletes, Joe Nemeth comes to mind strong. But he mentioned CLYDE Frazier before Mike dressing, really extravagantly. Joe Nemeth was doing like pantyhose commercials Bill Walton of first at UCLA and then later for the Trail Blazers which is like, oh, two dead shows talking about the Vietnam war on they were out way out ahead of the public, generally speaking. But certainly of sports fandom of like flying their freak flags and doing it. And it was reading the Oscar Robertson by biography. And he was a of not just one of the most amazing basketball players to ever live. I'm sad. I didn't get to see him. He had a triple double for like an entire season. Yeah. It at one point just a amazing guy, but he fought for free agency. And you realize there's is an intrinsic connection. Joe Nemeth had fuck you money, he earned it. He demanded it. He won a Super Bowl three in dramatic fashion. That the story is always retold. But and the AFL itself, which he came from was a competitive league to the NFL before they merged. And so it allowed this sort of bidding wars to happen when athletes had enough money that they could tell coaches, and they could tell owners to go screw themselves. It changed their behavior. It gave them a sense of confidence out there that they wouldn't otherwise had and they use it and part of that made the world weirder. I mean Bill Walton is a incredible book by David Halberstam. Call breaks of the game about the nineteen seventy eight trailblazer. So the season after they'd won the NBA championship and those really. Great weird teams and Walton of this before he was a constant injury. Case was in the center of it all, but it talked about how when he was at UCLA and UCLA was on its remarkable run of never lose game and winning all the championships. And that is totally buttoned-down straight laced coach John wooden who wouldn't tolerate wizard of Westwood was it of Westwood school older of the pyramid of success, her do whatever bunko artists. Yeah. But he had his arguably one of the greatest coaches of all time of anything the best. Yeah. And Tokyo, and there's a moment there where? Were would Bill Walton comes in with his hippie hair? And I think he might even be wearing like get US Vietnam shirt, and in so Walton wooden strengths to crack down on them. But like Walton is smoking all the pot, and wouldn't you know? We have rules was supposed to be kind of clean cut and do this and Bill welts coach, I really really need. It's the only way I can relax and perform my top level and Joan wins. Like, all right. So like you throw it out the window. When the athlete is when your your lunch money depends on that athlete. And so this helped make the seventies a much more rich, and there's there's an explosion of activity. I'd like it and the beginning of Motown in seventy four or like, we're Motown gave way to like Stevie Wonder being able to do what he wanted to do Marvin Gaye being able to what he wanted to do when you went away from this kind of top down studio owned music..

And shop is going to back me up on this. Shep did Anthony not say when challenged he may go down as the best point guard of all time. I'm in shock. He did say that. Holy gosh. Anthony, I want you in concussion protocol right now. Magic Johnson for God's sakes. Google johnson. Chris Paul and Magic Johnson shouldn't even be said in the same. Stop set of a radio show.

"The pace now is beyond anything we've seen in a long time. Now, if you want to go back to the will Oscar Robertson days the pace they're the number of shots. Rebound opportunities. That's why Westbrook's triple double is more impressive than Oscar Robertson's. It is. But when the seven seconds or less sons would be in the bottom of the league and pace. Now, and everybody's taking threes. I mean, hardens take thirteen threes a game in his three point shooting percentage is actually like up I think for the highest in four years and he's taking twenty three shots game. And he's like forty percent usage rate any has the highest percentage of dribbles. I mean, I don't know how you would track. I guess they could track it somewhere where how often a ball is in a players. I can't even imagine the gap between Hardin, and then the next guy and Westbrook had an absurd usage rate in his triple double season that was like forty two forty three. And then Dangelo Russell was right there. Russell has won thirty six or thirty seven which is just stupid, but hardened is at forty which is still a little bit low that Westberg thing, but it's a lot. Like that thing. I talked about is that we're having these individuals seasons of greatness to typically because we've never had and I'm talking about Jordan days, the Koby touched on it a few times some of those Lakers teams. But it is so singular one person that dominates the ball in ways that we just don't see that often. But it's all happening at the same time Westbrook seasons. Not so much now hardened currently right now, especially with the injuries the Isaiah Thomas Celtics season that guy loves it tweet. So there's there's a greatness of harden, which is true his shot making put he in curry in that group together his handle it if it's not kyri or steps, maybe it's better than Steffes. Maybe it's just below Kyrie's. I mean, that's gonna be who's who you buy jerseys of whoever you're gonna argue for that once not interested in that deal. So it is great. But I feel like whatever governor there should have been on this by the league league hasn't figured out how to officiate him and he's allowed to do a ton of different things. So even having said all those things. I still think you have to give them the MVP halfway through the season, which is saying something because I've looked at you know, this historically have said this numerous times, even go back to the radio show is like staff after blowing the three one lead, and being unanimous MVP, which is always a stupid thing that people try to hold against him because other morons voted wrong with previous MVP's that I think he was gonna win one again and they'd hold against them. And I thought with Harden's awful playoff exits in missing million shots and row the Western Conference finals the end of that Spurs series, which was joke. He's bad. I didn't think he'd ever win the VP again after finally getting one that maybe some other voters felt like he should have gotten before. And now he might get it. So I have Hardin one. I have Anthony Davis second. He is nineteenth in usage. All right. Anthony Davis is number one in some of the metrics ahead of harden. But Davis the rebounding numbers are up like he's jumped up three rebound the assist numbers of almost doubled. The scoring is through the roof the efficiencies insane. And yet he's still he's behind eighteen other players in usage, that's criminal. And even watching them they fought with the war is that was a tough game for Golden State. And then they Steph them in the third quarter and Steph of doing that little thing where you're like, hey, is it not as fun anymore. Is it not as cool like Steph razors? Something like, oh, wait a minute. It's just not as new or Steph changed the way we looked at outside shooting, and he's still can do it. And he didn't in the third quarter. But to not get Davis touches to..

"He finished thousand eighteen and south forty three points, ten rebounds, thirteen assists for the last night's win grizzlies that made him the first NBA player to notch at least thirty five points and five assists and eight straight game numbers, which was a market share. Oscar Robertson, the most remarkable stat from last night is that he's scored forty three points on eight made field goals makes him the first player in NBA history to score over forty on eight or fewer makes its eight time in his career. He's done that. While he scored forty on on more forty or more on ten or fewer field goals. That's the most numbers you've ever said in thirty seconds. It so many numbers. I he might go down as the greatest offense of player in NBA history. And I I don't I don't even put that much stock in James harden in the postseason, but that his the numbers that he's putting up our incredible. You can't deny that. I don't like numbers. I was bad at math. I'm bad at math to my folks mass. I don't like numbers. You just went numbers on how you should have literally grabbed a phone book and started reading numbers, the like joy, your these numbers. You're an emotional person. You are you you emotes idea. Mo and you just went numbers on me. Because here's the thing about harder. Normally I have moat about James harden 'cause I don't trust them in the postseason Q. However, I I've I'm I'm out of conflict because you always bring it back. Lebron James, and I feel like everybody can't be LeBron James. That's true. So I feel like we're we hold everyone standard you fair. That reminds me of my New Year's resolution in reality. Which is I need to be nicer to LeBron. I saw I I saw saw you. you. So critical. I disagree with you. I think in very balanced. Okay. Joy with the news. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by heard lie. You know, he he let solve this. Because he was a college basketball star, my friend that Duggar Fox Sports radio come on get out here. I gotta talk about this whole James harden thing. All right here, we go. Now you and I disagree on a lot of stuff. And and but we always kind of respect each other's opinions. I. I am. I'm not I believe in man Olympics. But I don't turn my head analytics they matter. So I'm not one of these Charles Barkley where it's all about Mantelet IX. And no analytics, I'm kinda seventy thirty analytics, but here's what I know usage rate. Yes. When I thought it was going to have to bring this up his usage rate is so high. He has the ball constantly console is numbers. Roll amazing. Yes. I don't think in June. I've seen Westbrook in hard last year. Doug, James harden went over eleven on threes it stopped because his vision was bad his legs were shot. And there's actually a reason why there's there's two reasons he doesn't play defense one is because he doesn't play defense. And he hasn't had a coach they did play better defense in the playoffs. But coach truly held them accountable to defending better. Yeah. But additionally, it takes a bunch of your energy away. Sure. Right. Like, that's the part about LeBron. That is amazing is east taking a lot more plays off. Now. Yeah. Before he got hurt defensively. But is that LeBron could have such a high usage rate and defend at a reasonable level. At the other end, quiet Leonard by the best at it and the league, correct? And that hurts his that hurts his ability at times to score. That's why a lot of times he plays without the basketball. But I think when you get into playoff basketball, he ain't getting twenty seven free throws. They inhabit guy, and he's going to have to defend a little bit better all that takes away from the juice. You have in your body, and and that's going to hurt. So those it's it's like a different sport in the playoffs. But to Joyce point, which is a good one..
