So Scott's not very often where the expectations for something or Sky High and the work meets it but ESPN's draft coverage is about as normal thing. As I have seen on television made on television since this started I can't believe the undertaking that the draft was and how well it was televised under impossible circumstances. I'm not the guy who walks around congratulating the company patting the company on the back for doing what it's supposed to this was above and beyond and Adam Schefter. Was that the middle of the middle of everything that was happening here in terms of bringing us access what you have before I bring Schefter on God. I just wanted to point out. It's a great observation by you. Wouldn't nearly flawless. There are countless behind the seeds people. That should probably be. Thanks so thank you but also Trey Wingo in the middle of that thing with that energy in the studio by himself balancing everything. He had the balance for three consecutive. Days was my mvp of the weekend. He did a phenomenal. Wow the highest as Adam schefter. I'm sorry that you are not still got an MVP of the week. And we appreciate your participation this contest. The Adam Schefter podcasts. Something that's available to you wherever it is. You get your podcast last week. He talked to Joe Borough. So let's start here at when you look at you when you talk to executives. They say what in terms of who did the very best this weekend and who really got it wrong. Well let me say Oh. You're my teams now because I thought we were talking about just the draft itself and let me just say when you give out the MVP tree and he's very worthy but I would give an MVP announced shared amongst one hundred and fifty people who are actually at ESPN in the Control Room in. The building forced to leave their homes at a time. And everybody you weren't given one so you can't give anyone go on and on one hundred and fifty people who schefter. I don't know who you think you are. But it's award. And he already gave it to Trey Wingo and TRAE WACO wants to share it up to him. Don't get the people behind the scenes. That's all okay. That's all well and fine and you come into the award podium. And you've said the thing that will get the applause but again trey wingo was the MVP. According to God's not else now give us what you're here for winners and losers winter's ashes winners and losers of a draft weekend or some of the most ridiculous and meaningless things. You could actually do because anybody could do it. And it sounds great and I guess that's what we have to do two days after the fact but in two thousand seventeen you give the chiefs as draft winner for the bold. Move Up to take packs from homes. If I remember correctly in that draft people will lauding the forty niners from moving back any extra picks and getting Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster in round one. How does that work out? Okay so again. We give winners and lose. It doesn't mean anything. And so then I. I'm SORTA come back but I'll come back to. Espn draft welcome back to the NFL. Which again speaking for coaches. Gm's personnel people unless they were not happy. They were not happy about having a draft this week and I wasn't talking about having a draft this week and nobody was around the League. Okay and the and it came off flawlessly so to me. That's the way it was the winter. Roger Goodell Okay Roger Goodell. Who's been the subject of an incredible amount of criticism to me? Probably enjoyed the three best days of his commissionership over thirteen years. And those were the winners. You WanNa talk team. Who knows who knows how these guys are going to develop. You'd never know. There were a lot of teams that look like. They did well or their teams. You wonder about but but so what if Jordan love turns out to be a Patrick Mahomes. Like quarter of the Green Bay. Packers are a winner if he turns out to be Paxton Lynch or Tommy Maddox. They're loser all but the thing that the thing is curious though Adam could look at what the past given that they got a guy under contract for an enormous money and basically the value of Jordan loves contract is going to expire while he's not even playing because of how dumb it is to trade up in that spot when you needed other things that were a game from the Super Bowl like and I think what they did was the most surprising thing I saw in the draft and the dumbest well a again. It was curious. That's a very good way of describing it and I think if you want to second guess that that's fair the only thing I would say like today when you got Aaron Rodgers and you've got a chance to win and you're in the NFC championship game last year. And you're that close and knocking on the door. You WanNa go get another wide receiver. You WanNa go get a skill position player. You want to get somebody that's GonNa help your hall of fame quarterback take that next step and instead they took a player now it took a player but traded up to get a player and then came out of a draft that was the deepest wide receiver class ever without any wide receivers. So yes I understand that but to my point then if Jordan love turns out to be Aaron Rodgers life and they had the position. Sit Up for forty five fifty years far too rogers to love from Iraq to Jaylo. Then they win. They would it. It's still a dumb contract to have the those two contracts next to each other. It's dumb to have them like that doesn't make I understand what you're saying. Yes if they hit it out of the park and get the greatest quarterback ever He's still won't be at value by the time the contracts up regardless check out the with you. I'm with you okay. I wouldn't do that if I had a quarterback Arron Rogers who's got two three four more years left I would. That's not what I would do but again I'm not to GM so this matter. Can you explain to me? What is the responsibility of the League and the Patriots in uncovering that the kicker being drafted has a three percent or tattoo that runs all right all right and militaristic and no one asks about it and no one knows about it and the press conference that the kid had introducing himself the Marshall Kicker? It rang untrue I honestly I'd have to figure out more details because that's not something. I was cracking going into the weekend. I wouldn't feel comfortable commenting something. I have a limited knowledge fair enough but I I would like somebody. Give me some answers on that entire career so now let me say this to you. The guy's name was cold. It was the first time I heard the guy's name okay. I I don't know that guy. I don't know anything about him. So I'm not going to render opinion about that I understand the sensitivity of it and the issue but I really don't know anything if you're allowed to sit out. I just worked like to talk to somebody who can answer that question for me. Go ahead STU Gods Adam Schefter. Pinos everything about every prospect. Get HIM ON ASKING ADAM. Schefter with us here on. Espn RADIO DJ at the Adam. Schefter podcast wherever you get your podcast. Last week. He talked first overall. Pick Joe Borough so check out the Adam Schefter podcast Adam Cam. Newton is still a free agent. Why why because first of all they release them two three weeks into free agency. There are no starting jobs available. He still has a transcendent talent. He's still used to making starting quarterback money. Nobody's GonNa give him a starting quarterback job. I don't believe I don't believe anybody's GonNa give them starting quarterback money. I don't believe and nobody knows whether or not he's healthy. He postal a workout videos. He wants and it's encouraging to see that it looks like he is healthy and he's making progress and then it'll be ready to play but before team invested whatever money it's going to player like Cam Newton. They're gonNA want their doctors to put a physical a prompt through a physical and put their hands are now maybe with some states lifting some restrictions Maybe at that point time somebody can get him in and give them a physical but again. There aren't a lot of options and I think if you're Cam Newton at this point Tom what you WANNA do. Is You want to set up a deal where you get a one year contract and where you get to hit free agency a year from now at the start of free agency when teams have quarterback needs are looking to address them right away with the job with the money with all those things so. I think that he's looking for a patrick band aid type situation to get him through to next year. Please become a free agent at that time next year and you can make an argument for eight to ten teams. But there's no one team that you say. Oh boy this. This is an obvious landing spot for candidate. It's not New England which is a million dollars under the CAP. Don't have the space for them. It's not the chargers went out and drafted Justin. Herbert Jacksonville seems married to Gardner Menchu. And some of these young players We can go through Jameis. Winston identified a spot New Orleans. You recognize a one year contract. Well this should be a smart place to go. I learned from Sean Payton drew brees. I'll fill the teddy bridgewater roll and then one year from now. Hey Free Agency and try this again and the best case scenario. Maybe I get a chance to play this year. Maybe drew brees doesn't make it through the entire season. Maybe I get to play a few games. Like Teddy Bridgewater shine parlay that into a starting job. But I think that's how Cam Newton has to be thinking right now and that's not how. Cam Newton has ever thought throughout the course of his entire football life. What was up with Louis Riddick? Wi Fi good question. Such delays way. I I mean you have no idea. Sometimes you know some of the things that are going on. Sometimes it's delayed Those are transmission issues that are that are beyond my capabilities from zoom. I gotTa tell you though Schefter. It's the reason that you were denied the MVP to give one hundred fifty people. Somebody there was responsible for Riddick's wild by and they did not do their job correctly. So we'll ask Trey Wingo what it is. That should be done about this New England controversy. I'm sure he'd really like you. Dropping that dead fish in his lap trey wingo has factoid about every draft. Pick imaginable. Things about them that you wouldn't even know. He knows where they have to choose that I would know existed so if anybody can be qualified to answer that question. I nominate STU gods. Mvp to do that police. Okay thank you very much Adam schefter check out his podcast. Talk to Joe Borough. Last week always appreciate his time stood. There was this from Schefter and there was a lot of people. Notice sort of the poverty porn that was being trafficked in on the NFL draft. When you get half sentences like this from Adam schefter to begin tweet F. I. Running back Anthony Jones who has recovered from being shot in the face last year oil. There was a lot of that.

And she has spent her weekend studying old right militia groups so that is not a sentence. I thought I would be utterly today but I am thankful that Meena Calms will answer some of our questions on difficult subject matter in about ten minutes a Aaron Rodgers this is according to Qb data mine. You tell me Stugotz if this stat does anything for you. Aaron Rodgers receivers cost him at least six hundred forty eight yards last season because of drops. The average for qualifying quarterbacks was to eighty two in the second place quarterback had only five hundred and seven yards to. You're just empty numbers from QB data mine. No those aren't empty numbers. Those are those are frustrating numbers. And that's still a team with all that said that made it to the NFC championship game. They were game away from a super bowl. Which makes it all the more puzzling as to. Why if you envision Aaron Rodgers as met with loose said over the weekend to be. Your leader Long-term Long-term very very long time is what he said. Why would you draft a rookie quarterback and not provide your leader with a weapon with a wide receiver to go opposite? Davante Adams doesn't make sense so Chris and Billy were having a conversation Stugatz his weekend. Observations are coming up here in a little bit. We'll have them at noon. But I do want to get to this conversation because it's the Patriots. Somebody's gotTa have some responsibility their rights. To God's I mean somebody somebody's gotta be able to answer some questions. When as uncomfortable as people are with the race subject and they're very uncomfortable with the race subject. You see how divided America's it's not hard to see I think people even as they don't like me talking about race on this show I think Ville permit it when a guy has got a three percents or tattoo on his arm and the press conference he's given about it seems empty hollow and just not truthful in any way. Yeah so someone's got to. I think both the the league level like why was not an issue. I guess that combine if he did indeed show up to the combine and that certainly would the patriots like the Patriots. Not Know about his past or to the Patriots simply by what it is that he was selling which say got. This was when I was a kid. I had no idea have how offensive. I didn't even know what it meant. And now that I know I'm going to get rid of it And maybe they just believe them. I mean it seems silly. But anyway the Patriots Organization that has been burned by having a murder in their huddle and takes care of every detail and is very careful about character and patriots way and all of that stuff for them to be claiming here for everyone to claim here just total ignorance. It's it's a situation like. Why is this? Why this this because this never happens. Why is this always happening to you? Guys it's a little bizarre to me that when you think of organizations that really whiffed on interpreting tattoos you think of the Patriots. You would think that this would be part of the draft. Bra Says Investigating Players Tattoos. If any teams going to do it would be that maybe not maybe Bella checks. Dog really is running their draft. Maybe when he says we the idea. We didn't get a quarterback that was not by design. Maybe that was the dogs doing. Allow me to say this though. Good kicker good kickers. There's a saying college kickers anytime. I was on the herd. Yes I was feeling. Good about my chances. Dude deliberately distanced money money but Chris you were saying and again meantime and just a couple of minutes you were. You were saying during the break. This is the conversation. This is the way it happened. Chris Leans into the zoom. And and you're the worst you WANNA tell people look at your smart and you want to tell them the way that you didn't go head. Who's your favorite F word in the entire last dance? What's your favorite S. F. Word? And he went minds wilpon. He just. He asked the question. Just give us his nominee on that front. I'm enjoying the F. Words and the cursing in this documentary. It makes me feel dangerous because it's on. Espn my gear. Look at my company. Not that it's my company but I worked for them. I'm like yeah. This is exciting. This feels dangerous. And I'm just wondering if you guys are experiencing the same way and if you are which of the F. Bombs that you've heard was the most like Ooh I just said the airport and for me it was wilpon. I'm sorry Dan Billy. So you don't happened to me yesterday I I was doing something else so I- dvr the episodes of avalon. A series record and for whatever reason the first episode recorded that like censored version right and it was super distracting. Because when you're watching it as it's going on uncensored you don't even really catch it because it's just like they do it so casually like the curses to like you don't hear all the curses all the time. Right when you're watching it on the edited version you hear longer extended curses. You're like that was long and his mouth like it said three words. What were the joins us to talk about three words. I did not think I'd be saying today. All right militia. That is straight talk. It is brought to you by straight. Talk Wireless. No contract no compromise. What does it mean spherical name in mean speed there for each? That's why stay farms announcing the neighbor relief program. We know that our customers are driving list. Which means fewer accidents so state farms returning two billion dollars auto policy holders for the period ending may thirty first and we'll continue making real time decisions to best serve you our customers because now more than being a good neighbor means every mike a good neighbor stay on.

UNICOM'S PODCAST with Lenny. If you want more good stuff but she joins us now on. Espn radio help me understand. What's fair and what's not fair. Thank you for joining us by the me. Now what's fair and non fair in terms of talking about the patriots drafting kicker with an alt-right Tattoo three percenters. You know all right militia. Groups is what you've been studying this weekend. I love this show it. Is You just get dunked right in? And it is so great. A Good Morning I've had to learn a lot about the group. I think a lot of people have right over the last few days and as I always say whenever we have stories like this about your stuff in the past allegations are red flags. I think it's really useful to be specific. So the three percenters. Which are the group in question? The Tattoo is their logo. The Southern Poverty Law Center defines MS An anti-government Group. They were formed in two thousand eight. After Barack Obama was elected they claim to be an anti-government group. But if you read the themes they're pretty clear there's like a bit of looseness as to the organization itself. They have branches that have done. Things like Protecting the White Supremacist Charlottesville protesting refugee resettlement. But that was in some of these things have been denied by the national group so it can kind of hard to pin down. I guess clear messaging. So we've got. Is this guy this kicker who says well? This was a mistake when I was a teen. Now it's a very specific tattoo and it's not like a tweet right because it's something he's had on his body so I think what I'd want to know is okay. When did you figure out then what this actually means? But more importantly when he comes out and says this doesn't represent what I believe. I think it would really useful to have him say well. Here's what it represents and here's why I don't agree with us and we never do that when we have these stories. And I think it's so useful to have people actually say the words and explain what this stands for. Because otherwise get slighted over as controversial and red flags when we can talk about what it means and without necessarily indicting him completely should the Patriots of them. I think based on what we usually hear about the research they do. I would be pretty shocked if they didn't. Can you explain to us? What you believe is the truth here within your fair reported standard because you're not someone who just flies off. You're you're very objective. When you handle things like this so help me understand what what is what is fair to expect of the Patriots of the League. What is fair to ask this kid about you know explaining? It felt like he was lying to us. I think it's fair to ask him the two questions that I brought up which are win. Did you realize what this actually stands for. And what do you think it stands for? Why don't you agree with that? I'M NOT GONNA say he's lying or that. The Patriots agreed with it or didn't do their own thought process or work through it but there's lack of transparency around it right. We're not asking the really obvious questions here because we just want to move past it really quickly. I understand that but they're not difficult questions. The two things I said are not hard to answer and I think they're worth putting forward. People are getting on me thinking that I'm being too critical in saying that. Aaron Rodgers has a right to feel insulted and disrespected. And I wouldn't blame him if he asked to be traded but I am seen as biased on this subject. What are your thoughts there about everything that happened? Where he's advocating for. Get me a skill guy for the first time in fifteen years in the first round and instead they trade up in the first round to replace him. I think that's the problem Dan if they had drafted Jordan love but also added a wide receiver in free agency or maybe traded up for Denzel Mins instead of taking a running back in tight and then no wide receiver. I think packers fans would be less angry. I think Aaron Rodgers would have less of a reason. I don't know how it feels. But he would have less of a reason to be upset. But it's like the combined some of these actions. I mean what? The packers did is not unjustifiable. Basically they said we need a succession plan. We're not going to be in this position again to get a guy. We really like. Our quarterback gets hurt a fair amount and maybe in the best case scenario if we don't use them if he isn't the successor we can flip them as an asset. Which they've done in the past with Aaron Brooks but the problem is I think you also have a very realistic worst case scenario. Where Rogers isn't incredible next year and people wonder whether he was put in a position to succeed. And then you kind of muddle along until two thousand twenty and then you have a very awkward and difficult decision and it's not clear whether you've put sort of your players in the right positions to make that decision. That is an interesting with Aaron Rodgers and get hurt often and it is the most important position in sports and they did get some guys later on in the draft. Like what happens if Arron Rogers does get hurt. And they don't have a backup quarterback at least now they have put Scott. How do they not draft the wide receiver again? I mean come on like what are you doing it? It'd be okay if they had just taken a guy. I really think everybody would be less upset about this. Because it's like the jalen hurting. Eagles fans are so mad right that they went out and got jalen hurts. You can never quantify the value of a backup until you need. It and Eagles obviously know that better than the other team like. You're never going to be happy. You're team invested heavily in a backup quarterback right it just. It doesn't fill the short term. Needs it's not sexy. It's not helpful when you look at your team and you think. What does my team need? You're never going to say a backup quarterback and have that at the top of the list so I think we underestimate how important that is again. The problem here for the Packers Eagles is the opportunity. Cost again remember. She's the host of the show featuring lenny also ESPN daily. You could get them wherever you get your podcast. Mina kimes with us on. Espn radio so you geek out on this stuff who's drafted you love. And whose did you think man? That was not great. I don't like the packers I'll say that even though I'm kind of a little bit I've come down a little bit off to Jordan thing. It was actually the other players. They drafted that. Made me like it. Less fact that they took a running back after him right and didn't take a receiver and waited to take an inside linebacker. I loved the cowboys drive. Which is funny because we were roasting Jerry Jones on his yacht all by himself on Thursday and then he went out and maybe got the most value of any GM in the draft. I don't think people have wrapped their minds around. How terrifying this cowboys offense is going to be to have CD lamb fall into their laps. Where HE DID. This was already an extremely efficient offense. They're going to be monstrous next season and I never gala. They've got a ton of other great players as well who's the GM that's consistently the best at this? The best drafting boy. It's you know. The colts have had great graphs. Recently the saints have had really good drafts they go on streaks. But it's funny Bowie. I'll say this and you have a special interest in this. I thought the jets and giants crushed the draft. Oh now to do teams who routinely get roasted for some of their decision making rightfully so. I liked both drafts a lot. So I don't think really I guess Baltimore would be the correct answer.

And Billy has something for Aaron Gorden. So that's going to be here in fewer than ten minutes. Because I surprised by billy's take on Aaron Gordon. I was surprised that if you're not familiar with the story here Aaron Gordon Is. He's got a diss track out at the expense of Dwayne Wade. Because during a pandemic he's still complaining about getting nine hundred. Ten in a dunk contest will get to what billy has an for a second but I. I don't even understand what's happening here with Bill. O'brien do you guys see what? Antonio Brown lost his reputation in the matter of minutes where there was literally one game left in a season. And then it unraveled bill. Brian has been the same. Stu Gods he We we laughed watching him storm away. Furious 'cause the lions backed out of trade. And everyone's making the joke you know what what they backed out of a six rounder for Shawn Watson curious about a bill. O'brien hasn't been the same since he was heckled and caught by. Tmz and the heckler yelled at him. You Suck and Bill O'Brien response. Was you suck to mother bleeper? Which is acknowledging that he indeed sucks he has suck since like. I mean everyone was laughing at him storming away furious because the lions backed out of a trade. How many other furious coaches did you see other than Chen? Nobody and he hasn't given that reporter much to kind of go back on his original report original comments. I mean all he's done as you pointed out is dumb. Things that comment was made. I mean he's crazy it wasn't a reporter was just. Tmz catching him in a tunnel. You Suck to mother bleeper ability. Where are you with Aaron Gordon Distract during a pandemic you got you know if you're not familiar with the story? Derek Jones. Junior won the contest? A lot of people like steph curry think that Aaron Gordon should've won the dunk contest. But dwayne Wade seems to have conspired seems to have cheated a little bit to help his Miami Heat Guy and now. There's a distract from Aaron Gordon. I didn't know that I necessarily have something for him. I just wondered aloud and I kind of asked for the rooms. Thoughts like issued not GonNa be a great rapper. Put It out there. Shouldn't you be better at basketball? I don't know I feel like there's kind of like a balance right leg if you're going to be mediocre at one thing be better. It's something else right but it seems like Aaron's just okay at everything right all right. Though I thought they had some rhythm you know the lyrics were kind of funny I mean I disagree with his point. I mean wait clearly. Deserved to win that dunk contest. Get Out of here and Gordon deserve it. Not Wade Wade whatever. Don't wait waits competition. Let's be real the winner here by. Aaron Gordon is flows a little better than I expected. Oh Mike Mike is disgusted by right now. Mike is so. I don't know what's happening here but Mike. How do you feel about the earned Gordon distract? I feel like we've devoted enough time to this very average basketball player. This is enough. Aaron Gordon in my life I was. I was doing my morning twitter toilet time. I was like really doing this Dwayne. Wade's a better rapper. Than you too. Because let's not forget the song of the summer that Twain Wade dropped with Rick Ross. He's even better at that. Erin Dwayne Wade is the perfect example. Because he's good enough that you can kind of tolerate just a horrible song where air and you're like Aaron beat better. Come on be better basketball. You're going to be a bad rapper. And so with Mike. I love twitter toilet time. Who's with me? Yeah but the Mike's Point Billy what are you gonNa stop floating things out there and just what it is. You say. Aaron Gordon under no scenario should creating a district to gain weight. He simply not good enough not even close next.

Podcast is presented by capital one. This is banking reimagined. This is the Dan Le Batard show with this to got spot CASS county. All right STUGOTZ. I have a funny story for you. That I can't tell right now. Involves me missing everything about the Michael Jordan documentary last night out because I was locked inside my home across the street holding a Festoon of balloons? Because it's Valerie's birthday today but we'll get to that in a second because I want to hear from you guys on what was good about this because I the story I have. I had the links Stugatz. I had the links to this. But what happened was I went and clicked on them this weekend and they were gone. They were because somebody. I guess some Internet site got some of the films and then they just lock everything down so nobody so the links I had for this documentary no longer work and we will get to how it is. I ended up across the street holding a festoon of balloons in. I want to hear from you guys on what was interesting about last night because I actually have not seen it. I was looking to watch this along with America so we could talk about it. And all I have seen is bits and pieces of some of the episodes and I'd seen one and two but I am not cut up now so I will let you guys lead a discussion on whatever is interesting on front. But Mike won't shut up about extraction now my as as a moviegoer. Mike's Tastes run. Almost right between you and meet STU gods. Because he'll come in more excited about anything then a great action movie. He claims mission impossible. The latest one is the greatest action movie of all time now. I said his film of All time here in mission impossible fallout okay. So but Mike Mike also likes his stuff but he's shouting at you before the show starts stu gods. I'm telling you. Go Watch extraction on Netflix. It's this Chris. Hemsworth who's like impossibly man is so much man it's crazy fanning myself crazy. This dude is the most man in all of the men in ever in Hollywood in terms of voice how we looks. He's just he's beautiful and evidently this movie is something that rivals mission impossible in terms of action. This was in terms of the cinematography of action. Movie it has probably the best tracking shot in the history of Action Cinema. This director same hargrave did such an amazing job with it. But I'm going to sell this to Stugatz in one sentence. The title the the main character his name is tyler rake. He kills not one but two people with a rick. I'm there because Mike and I share the same sensibilities when it comes to action movies. We love mission impossible. We Love Topgun. We point break. I will sprint extraction. Perhaps tonight I will also tell you the last dance is certainly in my top five action movies I. This is unbelievable last night we glimpse into one of the strangest characters to ever play in the NBA. Also underappreciated and that was Dennis Rodman so that was fascinating to see how Robin fit in with Jordan and pippen and some of the things. They went through together as teammates. Robin Jordan not particularly close friends but Jordan realized his value and realize. How much needed Dennis Rodman to win those championship? The best car. May I ask you question about that because I read a story this morning about Michael Jordan flying to Vegas to whole Dennis Rodman out of bed? While Carmen Electra hidden in the closet was the New York Post reporting that exclusively or was that something that was discussed last night in the film now disgust last night in the film where Jordan had to go to. The hotel room took robinet bag. Carmen Electra pointed out. I was hiding in a closet. Jordan said I will not tell you describe any single thing I saw in that bad or in that room. I just went in there to get Dennis and get Dennis back to the team. Get Dennis back to practice. But I was explaining to the guys Mike Durant because now I think it finally makes sense to them having seen the movie when you lose to the Pistons and your Michael Jordan. What you don't do is joined the Pistons. What you do is you take yourself. Whatever summer played. You had scrap them. You get in a gym with Scottie. Pippen. You're getting the gym with Horace Grant. You come back and you do it again. You don't go out to the HAMPTONS and be wooed by the Golden State Warriors stuff. You do all right. Thank you work hearts for informing me not at all about the movie and just simply explain for the one million time your take on. Kevin Durant what I wanted to ask you. Stop Wagging Saucy Dan. Stewart's absolutely right here. Saw The documentary. This is saying major storyline in yesterday's. You actually get a real life rocky training montage Michael Jordan with antiquated workout equipment. Putting on fifteen pounds of muscle. This is absolutely dead on by Stugatz. They're telling you it was a big storyline. Throughout the movie it was them overcoming the Pistons. And how they went about doing that and so I think for a lot of people that was fascinating to see but he'd stayed together all right but okay fair enough more interesting to me. Was this in the film or was this just something in the article because the article was quoting Carmen Electra directly. Was it also in the film that Dennis Rodman after being pulled out of that vacation Vegas vacation in the middle of the season in God knows what condition after drinking and consuming. God knows much. How much in Vegas that? He ended up beating. Everyone in sprints the next day and also had fourteen rebounds against Karl Malone coming off the bench in that condition. You really need to watch the last dance. All this is cover the cardinal actress by the way incredible lighting on Carmen Electra. Fantastic covered the whole drill and practice. That has an age. Well because it's the year twenty twenty Dan. They covered all of that stuff. It was fantastic this documentary. It has gotten better week to week. You weren't lying about that. Well I am sort of lying about that because I made it sound like I had seen the whole thing and that I knew. The first two episodes were weaker than the rest of the series. That's coming from a bunch of people I've talked to who have watched it in its entirety. And they're you know like like minded. Then they weren't sprint. They were it was. The team was jogging around the core right. So every time fell blew the whistle. The Guy who was in last had to catch up and get ahead of the guy who was first in line and what Jordan demanded the team because he thought Dennis was hungover and tired from three days in Vegas. Hey everyone slowdowns a dentist can catch up. Otherwise we'll be out here. The tire night when they blew the whistle and it was. Dennis is turn Dennis Spree after three days of partying in Vegas. Dennis sprinted so fast and was so far ahead of the rest of the team. They couldn't catch Dennis leary. What is it that you wanted to say? They're billing the movie you talking to people. You're reading articles. Switch the movie very. It's fun it's a fun watch okay. I'm glad I came to you on. Thank you billy for nothing. I mean it was. What's the point? Explain to me. What's a good point about that? I mean it's the only thing going on in the world of sports I know but I have to I. I know but I told you I was locked outside of my house in the street holding balloons. It wasn't because I didn't want to get in and watch and I was very frustrated because I wanted to get in and watch it and was relegated to merely reading about it afterward. I feel ashamed of this. I feel like I'm ill qualified today to discuss this with you but I am qualified after many years in journalism and twenty years on the radio to tell you that what I didn't WanNa hear during that first segment is your million take on Kevin Durant who. That's that's unfortunate. You should have watched the film. Espn radio is presented by progressive insurance.

It took an international pandemic that forced everyone inside but still still guts the a couple of months in Miami first time since nineteen fifty seven one of the conversations that I walked in on because I had left the room and come back and billy's already got the smile on his face because he's so pleased with himself because he just lobbed the grenade into the group chat of. Hey guys Tom Hanks just gave his it was like it was like either. Sitcom or somebody coming out of a set on late television. Hey Guys Tom. Hanks just gave up his blood for testing on the corona virus. Whose blood would you want to get in there? And he's like Michael Jordan and Chris Vin Diesel. Like he like billy half the conversation on air. You're having offer because you really did you. You look like an old timey late night host coming out at the start of a monologue and saying whose blood would you like that here this this dumb exit his wife donating their blood for Corona virus research. What celebrities blood would you want? I would want to think that Guy Dr Life the Old Guy. That's really jacked. I feel like he has really good blood blood blood Michael Jordan's blood. I can see it in his eyes got. Yes is are very bloodshot. As it continues to drink. They switched from camera. Shot Camera Shot. And you can tell one of the day's catch up and sit down with Michael Jordan. He had himself a night the night before even so alcohol. Though right over my blood right is do you Li- Kenmore now stugatz. Because yes Jordan was worried that people would think that he was ably poll. Once they got a little too close to his life so far through four four episodes. You go the other way you like him even more right. Yeah it's hard to To explain to people this is not the Michael Jordan. We saw when he was playing. He wasn't talking like this. He was not acting like this. And so this is really maybe outside of the hall of fame speech. He gave a couple of years ago. The first time you're really seeing Michael Jordan The True Michael Jordan. Who Michael Jordan really is? He's as relaxes. I've ever seen. He's letting it fly. He's he's obviously enjoying this moment. And Yeah I find myself liking him. I always appreciated the greatness but now starting to like the person behind the greatness and that's that's pretty cool. Cresco hadn't explain why it is you would want Vin diesels blood. I was a little surprised by the fact that you jumped right in there and you couldn't. You were very eager to want the the blood of the diesel. Why wouldn't you Vin? Diesels bloodies Jackie's Voice of an angel. And I think it may be any. We're thinking thinking also making Meryl Streep's blood. Wait a minute Chris you really. I go to the ocean like honest to God what you just did there. Then diesel voice. Angel doesn't have the Voice of an angel easy he no he does not jacked like I mean. They're only a million people in Hollywood more Jack than the kind of Jack. Fifty one year old. Vin Diesel Liz. I'm actually with Chris on this one. It's a good one but I totally different reasons. Owner know what he's hiding because vin diesel. He's just taken to instagram saying that. He's fighting a battle between universal studios and the prejudice guild of America. Vin Diesel has been very ambiguous about his ethnicity. Many theorizes is to increase his appeal. No one really knows we know a step. Father is African American. His mother has Scottish Irish but he is just very vague. He doesn't want to reveal what he truly is. What are you hiding this? So that's what you want. That's what you want from. I'm GONNA I'm going to the sensory DOT com. I'm going to get his blood so I can go to twenty-three in meal and get to the bottom of this because you are being purposefully vague about your ethnicity to increase your appeal and reveal the truth. Chris I honestly feel like you gave no thought to blurting. Vin Diesel. That soon when billy came out asking this question. About whose blood would you want if you needed to get someone's blood you immediately? Chose VIN diesel your reasoning for it. Is God awful? It doesn't make any sense to gods what he's doing. Are we going to gloss over that? He also said Meryl Streep I I other thing. I don't understand still here. Why are we want you to walk into the ocean? Get the five hundred dollar fine and the you are subject to arrest in sixty days in jail. Go to the notion. Don't what are you holding your finger up for? You can't just go get out of here. Just go walk to the ocean and I think he's Italian incurring Italian talented. He's Italian. He's Italian I'm going to find out more last dance. Talk coming up next.

So Stott's it is not very often where the expectations for something or Sky High and The work meet it but ESPN's draft coverage is about as normal thing as I have seen on television made on television since this started. I can't believe the undertaking that the draft was and how well it was televised under impossible. Circumstances I'm not the guy who walks around congratulating the company patting the company on the back for doing what it's supposed to do but this was above and beyond and Adam Schefter. Was that the middle middle of everything that was happening here in terms of bringing us access. What do you have before I bring? Schefter on Sudan's I just wanted to point out. It's a great observation. By nearly flawless there are countless behind the scenes. People that should probably be thanked. So thank you but also Trey Wingo in the middle of that thing with that energy in the studio by himself balancing everything. He had the ballots for three consecutive. Days was my mvp of the weekend He did a phenomenal. Wow the high res Adam Schefter. I'm sorry that you are not stu. Got His. Mvp of the week and we appreciate your participation in this contest. The Adam Schefter podcasts. Something that's available to you wherever it is. You get your podcast last week. He talked to Joe Borough. So let's start here at When you look at you when you talk to executives they say what in terms of who did the very best this weekend and who really got it wrong my teams now because I thought we were talking about just the draft itself and let me just say when you give out the MVP to Trey Wingo. He's very worthy but I would give an MVP and our shared amongst one hundred and fifty people who are actually at ESPN in the Control Room in. The building forced to leave their homes at time. And everybody you weren't given one so you can't get anywhere anyway. One hundred and fifty people who came to who you think you are but it's MVP award and he already gave it to Trey Wingo Trey. Wingo wants to share it up to him giving me Pete all the people behind the scenes. That's all okay. That's all well and fine and you've covered the award podium and you've said the thing that will get the applause but again trey wingo was the MVP. According to God's not anyone now give us what you're here for winners and losers winners I think. Winners and losers of address weekend are some of the most ridiculous and meaningless things that you could actually do because anybody could do it and it sounds great and I guess that's what we have to do two days after the fact but in two thousand seventeen will you give the chiefs as a draft winner for the bold move to take packs mahomes if I remember correctly in that draft people will lauding the forty niners for moving back any extra picks and getting Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster in round one how that worked out okay. So again we can give about winners and losers. It doesn't mean anything. And so then I. I'm SORTA come back but I'll come back to. Espn is a draft welcome back to the NFL which again speaking for coaches GM's personnel people in Lee. They were not happy. They were not happy about having a draft this week and I wasn't thrilled about having a draft this week and nobody was around the League. Okay and the and it came off flawlessly so to me. That's the way you know. It was the winter Roger Goodell. Okay Roger Goodell. Who's been the subject of an incredible amount of criticism to me? Probably enjoy the three best days of his commissionership over thirteen years. And those were the winners. You WanNa talk team. Who knows who knows how these guys are. GonNa Develop. You'd never know. There are a lot of teams that look like. They did well or their teams. You wonder about but but he. So what if Jordan love turns out to be a Patrick mahomes like with the Green Bay? Packers a winner if he turns out to be. Paxton Lynch or Tommy Maddox. They're loser all but the thing can be. The thing is curious though Adam. You can look at what the just did given that. They got a guy under contract for an enormous money and basically the value of Jordan. Loves CONTRACT IS GOING TO EXPIRE while he's not even playing because of how dumb it is to trade up in that spot when you need it other things that were a game from the Super Bowl like I think. What they did was the most surprising thing. I saw the draft and the dumbest well a again. It was curious. That's a very good way of describing it and I think if you want to second guess that that's fair the only thing I would say like today when you got Aaron Rodgers and you've got a chance to win and you're in the NFC championship game last year. And you're that close and knocking on the door. You want to go get another wide receiver. You WanNa get skill position player. You WanNa go get somebody that's GonNa help your hall of fame quarterback take that next step and instead they took a player now it took a player but created up to get a player and then came out of a draft that was the deepest wide receiver class ever without any wide receivers. So yes I understand that but to my point that if Jordan love turns out to be Aaron Rodgers life and they had the position you sit up for forty five fifty years far too rogers to love from Iraq to Jaylo. Then they win. They way it's still a dumb contract to have those two contracts next to each other. It's dumb to have them like that doesn't make I understand what you're saying. Yes if they hit it out of the park and get the greatest quarterback ever. He still won't be add value by the time the contracts up regardless. Check out the with you. I'm with you okay. I wouldn't do that if I quarterback Arron Rogers who's got two three four more years left I would. That's not what I would do but again I'm not to GM so this matter. Can you explain to me? What is the responsibility of the League and the Patriots in uncovering that the kicker being drafted has a three percent or Tattoo? That runs all right. All right And militaristic and no one asks about it and no one knows about it and the press conference that the kid had introducing himself Marshall Kicker. It rang untrue I honestly I'd have to figure out more details because that's not something. I was cracking going to weekend. I wouldn't feel comfortable commenting on something. I have a limited knowledge fair enough but I I would like somebody give me Samantha. Tire career doing that so now. Let me say this to you. Then the guy's name was cold. There was the first time I heard the guy's name. Okay I I don't know that guy. I don't know anything about him. So I'm not going to render opinion about that I understand the sensitivity of it and the issue but I really don't know anything that you're allowed to sit it out. I just want to talk to somebody who can answer that question for me. Go ahead stugotz Adam. Schefter everything about every prospect. Get HIM ON ASKING ADAM. Schefter with us here on. Espn radio check out. The Adam Schefter podcast. Wherever you get your podcast. Last week. He talked to first overall pick Joe Borough so check out the Adam. Schefter podcast Adam. Cam Newton is still a free agent. Why why because first of all they release him to three weeks into free agency. There are no starting jobs available. He's still is a transcendent talent. He still used to making starting quarterback money. Nobody's GonNa give him a starting quarterback job. I don't believe I don't believe anybody's GonNa give them starting quarterback money. I don't believe and nobody knows whether or not he sells. He postal the workout videos. He wants and it's encouraging to see that it looks like he is healthy and he's making progress and then it'll be ready to play but before team invested whatever money it's going to in a player like Cam Newton. They're gonNA want their doctors to put physical a print through a physical and put their hands maybe with some states lifting some restrictions. Maybe at that point in time somebody can get him in and get a physical but again. There aren't a lot of options and I think if you're Cam Newton at this point in time what you WANNA do. Is You want to set up a deal where you get a one year contract and where you get two free a year from now at the start of free agency when teams were quarterback needs are looking to address them right away with the job with the money with all those things so. I think that he's looking for a Patrick Band aid type situation to get him through to next year fleet. Become a free agent at that time next year and you can make an argument for eight to ten teams. But there's no one team that you say. Oh boy this. This is an obvious landing spot for Cam. Newton it's not New England which is a million dollars under the CAP. Don't have the space for them. It's not the chargers went out and drafted Justin. Herbert Jacksonville seems married to Gardner Menchu and some of the younger players We can go through Jameis. Winston identified a spot New Orleans. The recognizing a one year contract. Well this'll be a smart place to go. I learned from Sean Payton drew brees. I'll fill the teddy bridgewater roll and then one year from now. Hey Free Agency and try this again and the best case scenario. Maybe I get a chance to play this year. Maybe drew brees doesn't make it through the entire season. Maybe I get to play a few games like Teddy Bridgewater Schon and parlay that into a starting job. And I think that's how Cam Newton has to be thinking right now and that's not how. Cam Newton has ever thought throughout the course of entire football life. What was up with Louis Riddick? Wifi such a good question such delays. Way I I mean you have no idea. Sometimes you know some of the things that are going on. Sometimes it's delayed Those are transmission issues. That are that are beyond my capabilities. Problems owning is zoom. I gotTa tell you though Schefter. It's reason that you were denied the MVP to give to one hundred fifty people somebody. There was responsible for Riddick's Wi fi fi and they did not do their job correctly. So we'll ask Trey Wingo what it is. That should be done about this New England controversy. I'm sure he'd really like you. Dropping dead fishing his lap really trey wingo has factoid about every draft. Pick imaginable things about them that you wouldn't even know. He knows where they have to choose that I would know existed so if anybody can be qualified to answer that question. I nominate Stugtoz. Mvp to do that police. Thank you very much Adam schefter check out his podcast. Talk to Joe Borough. Last week always appreciate his time Stugotz there was this from Schefter and there was a lot of people.

You can find her. Mina kimes. Podcast WITH LENNY. If you want more good stuff but she joins us now on. Espn RADIO HELP ME UNDERSTAND. What's fair and what's not fair. Thank you for joining us. By the way once. Fair and non fair in terms of talking about the Patriots. Drafting a kicker with an outright tattoo. Three percenters alright. Militia groups is what you've been studying this weekend. I love this it. Is You just get dunked right in? And it is so great. Good Morning I've had to learn a lot about the group. I think a lot of people have right over the last few days and as I always say whenever we have stories like this about stuff in the past or allegations red flags. I think it's really useful to be specific. So the three percenters. Which are the group in question? The Tattoo is their logo. The southern poverty law center defines them as an anti-government they were formed in two thousand eight. After Barack Obama was elected they claim to not be an anti-government group. But if you read the themes they're pretty clear there's like a bit of looseness as to the organization itself. They have branches. That have done things. Like protecting the white supremacists at Charlottesville protesting refugee resettlement. But that was in some of these things have been denied by the national group so it can kind of hard to pin down. I guess clear messaging so what we've got. Is this guy this kicker who says this was a mistake when I was a teen? Now it's a very specific tattoo and it's not like a tweet right because it's something he's had on his body so I think what I'd want to know is okay. When did you figure out what this actually means? But more importantly when he comes out and says this doesn't represent what I believe. I think it would be really useful to have him say well. Here's what it represents. And here's why don't agree with us and we never do that when we have these stories. And I think it's so useful to have people actually say the words and explain what this stands for. Because otherwise it just gets slighted over as controversial and red flags when we can talk about what it means and without necessarily indicting him completely should patriots. I think based on what we usually hear about the research they do. I would be pretty shocked if they didn't. Can you explain to us? What you believe is the truth here within your fair reported standard because you're not someone who just flies off. You're you're you're very objective. When you handle things like this so help me understand what what is what is fair to expect the Patriots of the League. What is fair to ask this? Kid About A in explaining. It felt like he was lying to us. I think it's fair to ask him the two questions that I brought up which are when did you realize what this actually stands for? And what do you think it stands for? Why don't you agree with that I'M NOT GONNA say he's lying or that. The Patriots agreed with it or didn't do their own thought process or work through it but there's an utter lack of transparency around here. We're not asking the really obvious questions here because we just WANNA move past it really quickly. I understand that but they're not difficult questions. The two things I said are not hard to answer and I think they're worth putting forward. People are getting on me thinking that I'm being critical and saying that Aaron Rodgers has a right to feel insulted and disrespected and I wouldn't blame him if he asked to be traded but I am seen as biased on this subject. What are your thoughts there about everything? That happened. Where he's advocating for us. Get me a skill guy for the first time in fifteen years in the first round and instead they trade up in the first round to replace him. I think that's the problem Dan if they had drafted Jordan love but also added a wide receiver in free agency. Or maybe traded for Denzel Men's instead of taking a running back and tight end and then no wide receiver. I think packers fans would be less angry. I think Aaron Rodgers would have less of a reason. I don't know how it feels when he would've loved less of a reason to be upset but it's like the combined some of these actions I mean what the packers did is not unjustifiable. Basically they said we need a succession plan. We're not going to be in this position again to get a guy. We really like. Our quarterback gets hurt a fair amount and maybe in a best case scenario. You know if we don't use them if he isn't the successor we can flip him as an asset which they've done a past with Aaron Brooks but the problem is I think you also have a very realistic worse case scenario. Where Rogers isn't incredible next year and people wonder whether he was put in a position to succeed. And then you kind of muddle along until twenty twenty and then you have a very awkward and difficult decision and it's not clear whether you've put sort of your players in the right positions to make that decision. That is an interesting one with Aaron Rodgers. And you know. He does get hurt often. Dan and it is the most important position in sports and they did get some guys later on in the draft. Like what happens if Aaron Rodgers does get hurt and they don't have a backup quarterback at least now they have but Scott's how do they not draft a wide receiver again? I mean you come on like what are you doing it. It'd be okay if they had just taken a guy. I really think everybody would be less upset about this. Because it's like the jalen hurts. The Eagles fans are so mad. Right that they went out and got jalen hurts. You can never quantify the value of a backup until you need. It and Eagles obviously know that better than the other team like. You're never going to be happy. You're team invested heavily in a backup. Quarterback it just. It doesn't fill the short term needs. It's not sexy. It's not helpful when you look at your team and you think. What does my team need? You're never going to say a backup quarterback and have that at the top of the list so I think we underestimate how important that is but again the problem. Here for the packers. Not The eagles is the opportunity. Cost again remember. She's the host of the meantime. Show featuring lenny also ESPN daily. You could get them wherever you get your podcast meaner time with us on ESPN radio. So you Geek out on this stuff who's drafted you love. And who did you think man? That was great. I don't like the packers say that even though I'm kind of a little bit I've come down a little bit off. The Jordan thing was actually the other players they drafted. That made me like it. Less the fact that are running back after him right and didn't take a receiver way to take an inside linebacker. I loved the cowboys. Strap which is funny because we were roasting Jerry Jones on his yacht all by himself took on Thursday and then he went out. Maybe got the most value of any in the draft. I don't think people have wrap their minds around. How terrifying this cowboys offense is going to be to have CD lamb fall into their laps where he did. This is already extremely efficient offense. They're going to be monstrous next season. And I never gallimore. They got a ton of other great players as well who's the GM that's consistently the best at this? The best to drafting who boy? It's you know. The colts have had great brass. Recently the saints have had really good drafts a they kind of go on streaks but twenty Boeing. No I'll say this and still you have special interest in this. I thought the jets and giants crushed the draft. Oh no two. Oh boy do teams who routinely get roasted for some of their decision making rightfully so. I liked both of their drafts. A lot so I don't think really I guess Baltimore would be the correct answer. The team that has like the best history of over the last ten years of asset management and drafting and Eric Kosta continues to kill it. There thank you for being with us. We appreciate the time.

So this guy here has written a lot of people consider one of the best sports books ever written the Jordan. Rules showed you a world and a window into Michael Jordan. That people hadn't seen before Sam Smith Bulls writer for a long time. Now is right in for bulls DOT COM wrote for the Chicago. Tribune beginning in the nineteen seventies. So he was there for the bad and the Good Sam. Thank you for joining us. Have anything in here surprised you because while it's a fun retelling. I can't imagine there are a lot of details that you missed along the path where you're watching this and you're getting surprised. Yeah not not too much. The the archival footage you know some of it. I haven't seen before you know some of those guys playing high school by the way it. It's good to talk to you again. I remember I think it was ninety six ninety seven when you know. We were surrogate you're for Riley on for Jackson sorta doing columns there so that was That was always fun. I enjoyed that. When you're at the Miami Herald but You know Yeah right for me. It's different I what I what I'm surprised about interested in is so many people seeing this as news. You know I remember before it started. People said to me Ask me about it and I said well you know it's not. It's not going to be news. You know Michael's Michael's top people are talking to producers and you know we know all the story but no you know. Obviously all generation doesn't know the story but even the even people even those who you know around the you know you don't you don't remember the granular elements these things. Now you know my case I wrote like three bucks so I've gone back and looked at a number of times but it's a couple of things it's interesting you know. It's interesting to see so many people you know. Joe Klein people. I haven't seen over the years and you know in my Michael Steele settling scores. You know I say I saw got beat up a little bit the episode yesterday my I and look at it. Look what we have here. A couple of matches old school journalists. Cut It out. That's right Sam Smith with buzz on. Espn radio he wrote the Jordan rules before we get into the documentary stuff Sam. The the book when it exploded the way that it did. How surprised were you by it? What were you expecting and what were the ramifications of a Jordan? They hadn't seen before. I was probably naive about it. But part part of it was and as they pointed out. You know in in the documentary. Yesterday's showings were Kinda Jordan roles. I actually for this. I was Kinda surprised because I remember when they were promoting the documentary. I was thinking to myself. Do you know that ninety? Seven Ninety eight season when they're gonNA put ten ten parts of for that season. Are They GonNa do that? Actually doing the history of the Bulls. You know the both dynasty which you know wasn't the last so so you know now and so. I'm caught by surprise now to to get back in it like this and I see the Jordan. Rules is coming up next week. It looks like so you know it's my turn but you know initially the Bo- like like they said you know Michael was viewed that way he was do they. You can't win with him. You know is like he was a much appealing version of George. Gervin going to score a lot of points. But you're not GonNa win because you know he's a one man team and Burge wins and magic wins and teams went and you know the Pistons. Fourteen you know didn't have really superstars other than Isaiah. So yeah I saw sort of just blindly went into this. Well you know I got a Lotta time on the road traveling you know. We was stuck in cities all the time. You see if I could write a book you know I I know. A lot of people wrote books. They don't seem so smart. I'll try one and it was like that it was just. It was just sort of us because even them when they talked about and they did say when they made the point yesterday about the winning the Pistons was beating. The Pistons was more than a championship. Was They Never Thought About Championship? And if you if you go back to that era what was going on it. Was this notion back. Then as you got you had to get in the fire I and be burned and then you could succeed in other words. If you went to you got to the finals I lose see what took and then win in. Portland had done that they went. They lost to Detroit and much Detroit. Lost to La Before that and and now they've started that next season nineteen and one at ninety ninety one season when the Bulls won. So everybody was Portland's GonNa Win. You know it's their time. It's their turn. And so so. Then they win. You know they blow up there and the book comes out and it was you know pre talk radio of you know social media probably no cell phone whatever and it was hysterical steria Especially in Chicago. The narrative became. They'll never win again. You know because of this book and that's you know th they're going to be a one hit wonder when they could have been dynasty because of Sam Smith but wait but wait Sam so what you're basically telling us. Is that every step along the way Michael Jordan was questioned and now we celebrate him as the best. What you're telling us is that we treated him as mainly in this cruelest. We treated everyone else about the idea that he couldn't win. Absolutely yeah he referred to that. I thought yesterday when he said you know they brought that up about magic and bird and he said that really bothered me and it really did. I remember sitting in the Pistons Locker Room. I think it was that series where They went up to one eventually. Lost in six games eighty nine series and and magic just gotten the MVP and he's sitting there And media he gets all the plight right answers. I was sitting with him. Still answer him something and he turned to me and he said I wish anybody had one but that guy and because that's who he was competing against and it was so frustrating to him that magic was viewed so much more positively as a winner and he was viewed as a in fact. If you're not you know second place tied for last kind of thing you you're a loser so yeah you know and and There were there were many columns written in Chicago as well. And not the not the trade Jordan you know we. We love watching them. We're keeping but you can't win with them and so Yeah the AN flips. The switch flips awfully quickly. Once you succeed. But you've seen that you know so everybody's a loser until Lebron can't win and then he wins and you know he's going to be in the finals all the time so we see that all the time but I yeah when it came out I was Really under siege in fact newspaper and sent me home for a week. The team went on the road and they said Y'all don't go And I stopped answering phones and all and Ap PUT OUT. A story set off. They're missing and my mother sent it to Mesa. Where are you? And and then they do these swap. Stand up and they do these silly. Tv's shows where the reporter is walking outside. You know sometimes in the rain and do the weather whatever like somebody was walking doing a stand up on the book and they kicked it down a sewer and I remember seeing Roy Williams on TV blasting me coach. Kansas and I say well I know Michael. This is how you know false. He'd never was like this if you know my so it was intense at the time but They did pretty well after that. I stand corrected. It's one match cut it up. I mean that Sam Smith with us here. Audie radio SAM. Which was the better team? The first team with Horace Grant the second team with Dennis Rodman. I felt the first team was better a lot better. Because Jordan and pippen or it's such a incredible athletic level and really the success of those teams was defensively and that defensive team Jordan was defensive player of the year. Probably the best defensive to guard ever PIP and probably the best defensive. Small forward ever and grant was the best athletic defender in the euro for his position. Power forward so you had you had these three guys with is incredible athletic ability defensively Playing picking up teams or call. You saw you saw what pippen did against magic which really you know not so much turned it around and I think they would have won anyway but when he got on magic and game too you know took out of the series for the most part That was pretty extraordinary stuff. So just athlet. The Michael came back in ninety five ninety six You know the athletic athleticism was gone. You know he'd become a dominating figure who still a great player. He developed that shot. You know that little fadeaway turn around shot which was sort of unstoppable and intimidation factor was so great Pippen was still at a high level. Rodman Gr- great individual defender. What he could do but he he missed a lot of games He I think those first two seasons with the Bulls. He missed like fifty games. The suspensions ten eleven game suspension in there for kicking a photographer and he headed butted the referee at six. So a lot of stuff and so they were winning without him in the regular season and the playoffs they really needed them to play. Shaq to play Barkley. I mean yeah the Barclay to play Malone which he could do you know because he was such a bothersome defender but those first three teams were really really impressive to watch. Thank you for being on with us. We appreciate it sir. All right thank you all right. Good to talk to you all right. I believe that we're going to gonNA be doing some laughing. And the next one one eight hundred flowers a bit of a hammer one. Eight hundred flowers says bouquets for every occasion. Mother's Day is a major occasion. Do not screw this up. Don't go anywhere because Mike is GonNa make fun of US next.
