"Seattle. And I always see them. Cameron the ranch. But then it was like you watched him and you said damn, man. That kid is pretty good. But you know what it was, too, 'cause I saw that from other players when I was a kid. You know what I'm saying? I'm looking at guys like, you know, when I came in the league, like, I'm playing against Jordan, I remember playing pickup with Jordan like. You know, me it's why, you know, he played against these guys, and I'm looking to draw mashburn looking at me like going Robinson. You know what I'm saying? So, like, I'm like, dad, they really, okay, so now as I got older, I'm giving it back to you. You know what I'm saying? I think that's just the way the attack because look, they come in after you. They coming after your slot. Yeah. You know, you slide it in y'all play the same position. You know, you don't want to give them no edge as a youngster so that's how I was. Wow. What a magical year this is for you, though. To go to the Hall of Fame, now to be one of the top 75 players in the history of the NBA. Does it get better than that?

"He was deep as a player to hear, I believe in the conference. And usually defense in college translates to the NBA. Anything translate is the defense. And I was like, all right, this young kid, he think he got some defense. I'm gonna, let me come on over here. Let me see what that's all about. Come on over here. And so as I'm getting better offensively, he's getting better defensively. And I think that's what made us both great at what we did, because I've been known as one of the great offensive players in NBA history. And he's been known as one of the great deep Enders. And so, you know, we made each other better and I always took that challenge, especially from a young guys. I got older, he was young, I believe, and he made me better, and that's why I called on him every day in practice. One of the things you look at this team is, man, just all of a sudden it was a perfect storm. Did you get Kevin Garnett? You get Ray Allen. Paul Pierce is still in his prime. It was just the perfect time for everything to come together. Yeah, absolutely. The only thing we all wish that we could have did in a couple years earlier. Yeah, but it really was. I remember you. I remember you telling me that, you were talking about Kevin Garnett and so wick, you said, wick. This is the guy. We need to get and that was way before he even got. A couple years. It was at the free throw line. I'm like, hey, wick. We have the free throw line, so you win, and I'm at the free throw line boxing out. You on the front row right here. I'm talking about right here. I was like, look, Kevin at the free throw I'm like, look, you get him? When the champion is high, you know, and then a couple years later we get KG, and we deliver. I'm like, man, I knew something. That magical run that you had had to be like, just so wonderful to, you know, to be with the same team. Yeah. And go through the grind, not go to another team and steal the bee here, and to do it in a Boston subject uniform. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, I do it with the team that drafted you because nowadays, max, you look at how the player movement is and, you know, I don't think there's nothing wrong with it, you know, players aren't pounding themselves, but you know, they manufacture their moves now. Like we got KG yeah, we had a super team, but we had to do it through trade. We had to, you know, have some pigs to do it. It wasn't like I was calling this play together. You know, we can have a super team, which that they're doing today. And so that's why this one's more special because I waited to like my tenth year. I'm like, man, I'm ten years and no playoff success. A couple first round second rounds, one Eastern Conference Finals. And it's pretty much at the point where I'm like, you know, how much longer I got to play at this level. You know, we either gonna make a move or, you know, send me somewhere where I can give me an opportunity because I feel like I have the skills as a player to help a team win a championship..

"He's been a mentor in some regard. I'm not sure exactly the amount or what level to the new guys to Jason and jaylen. I mean, there's that great picture of Paul Pierce, high 5 and Jason Tatum and for Taylor makes a huge shot. I love that photo. It's just like The Old Guard the new guard coming together for a real quick snapshot. I do believe this Boston team can look at the career of Paul Pierce and what he has been able to accomplish over his career and say, yeah, he was the hell of a score. He was an all star for so many years earlier his career, but it was the unselfishness of him later on that really made him an NBA champion. I think this particular group could use that as an example to maybe fuel them and use that to maybe send an example for what they need to do the next step of their career as they get older into their primes in. Yeah. I mean, there were all sorts of little important things going on in that dynamic among those three guys. And especially with Kevin and Paul, and I mentioned that the story I did on how they put together the trade, and it was on the cover of SI for the preview issue for that season which turned out to be their championship here. And it's a picture that big three and garnets in the middle and he's the bigger figure. He's walking towards the camera and he's ahead of the other two. And so the picture tells you that he's the main guy. But if you look at Kevin Garnett in the picture, his thumb down by his hip is pointing to the side. It's pointing a Paul Pierce. And what he's telling you the viewer he's saying, this is really the guy. He's pointing to Paul. This is really the Celtic. This is going to be our leading score. And so in all sorts of ways you saw all that year, Kevin Garnett, making clear to everybody that Paul Pierce , he was saying, in my mind, Paul Pierce is the guy. Paul's been here forever. He's our original Celtic. He's got lead us in scoring. So he showed this respect to Paul all the time. And it really made a difference. I just think about the blending of cultures there that happened and how it applies to what the Celtics are hoping to achieve this year. And it's sort of why I'm really optimistic about the Celtics team. I think they're going to win more games than maybe Vegas thinks. Because you see it in sports all the time when you've got two cultures meeting and both of them want to win, but neither one knows how. So you've got you've got Jason and J one and those guys and it was dysfunctional last year and you can see the frustration in them. But they didn't know how to fix it. Well, now you have this new coach come in, who comes from the spur system who speaks directly to players when the doka was a player himself. He was a very tough minded role player. He didn't mind getting into fights. He would confront people. He got in their face. He's going to bring a little bit of that to a team that really, really wants that. It's going to be a stark contrast between him and Brad Stevens. And I think they're just going to want to hear everything this guy saying a little bit like Paul want to hear everything Kevin Garnett was saying..

"And this is really, you know, it's not entirely obviously, but it's a real Celtics feel to this class. The headliner, the biggest name is obviously Paul Pierce. He'll be presented by his old teammate good buddy and a very recent Hall of Famer as well and Kevin Garnett only technically in the 2020 class, but only inducted and in recent months. You know, these two classes coming back to back here. And, you know, I'll also, as part of the class not Celtics related, but you got Chris Webber and you have Ben Wallace and you have who also Chris Bosh. You know, there are some big names in this class and other star studded class, not quite to the level of garnet and Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant, obviously, but there are some big names in this class, but from a Celtics feel, there's peers. There's Bill Russell now going in as a coach. There's Mike Gorman, obviously, you know, long overdue quite frankly, the late great Tommy Hines and should have been in there a long time ago as a commentator. That still has not happened. So there's a lot that we can jump into here and you really are a perfect guy to help us do it. So I'm eager. How much do you just like this time of the year in general? And kind of go back through the annals of NBA history and watch the speeches and go back and look at old clips on YouTube and just take the trips down memory lane. Yeah, I think it's a really important time for the MBA because it's the most current of our leagues. I mean, baseball, they're always thinking about the past and they may go back a hundred years to compare one player to another. Salmon football not to the same extent, baseball, but people go back and they talk about the old football players Ben basketball, I don't know, before bird and magic is sort of like people act like it never happened. You know? Or if the video, the film is in black and white, well, that's got nothing to do with what's going on. Even Julia survey and seems left out of today's conversation. That's how that's how current and in the moment the MBA is. And so this is a great time for a perspective and to realize.

", like Ricky the earbud or something like that? Yeah. I would love to do that. If you have something to say about Paul Pierce, I can see it. Yeah, so I mean, Paul Pierce, I appreciate the fact that he's I mean, he's always this during his career as you very well know from covering him in person for so long during his prime that he just candid and very interesting. And it isn't afraid to and always love to take shots of LeBron. And he kind of hit the trifecta in this SI piece with Chris mannix. On ESPN stuff, but then, you know, it gets into the reunion stuff with KG and ray and Rhonda, where I'll ever happen. And I'm also intrigued as well with the talk of the KG pierce reality show slash podcast where they potentially go to things like the running of the bulls or other skydiving or whatever. I feel like that could have some real potential behind it. But I wonder if how motivated those guys to do it like that is it going to be worth it? Financially for them to do that stuff. Yeah, I think it depends on the money. I think they're both probably pretty financially motivated at this point. So yeah, I mean if you're talking about jumping out of planes and running with bulls, I think you want some money. I would love to see KG square off face to face with a ball. I don't know necessarily that would be an interesting. If this show does come to fruition, that would be an interesting bet. Who will win just mono emanu? Like most of the people run in the opposite direction, but I wonder if KG would just run towards the bulls. And see what happens. It could be like running of the KGs, the bulls would start running in the opposite direction. But Mac Jones, he is him and Trevor Lawrence are your two favorites right now. Wow. Interesting. Plus three 50 for Mac Jones, winning rookie of the year. I mean, I think the difference being as offensive for a few years, how they do it, by the way. But I think it's just like Trevor Lawrence imagine is going the Jags will probably still be kind of shitty. Whereas Mac Jones in a position to potentially lead your team to the playoffs or maybe even, I don't know, the bills are pretty good. But plus three 50, that doesn't tempt me very much. Yes, too. That's yeah. That guy, we wanted that guy plus 700 plus 800 plus three. We need to make it two weeks ago. It was when we were going to make mister chance there. But all right, but yeah, so peers, Goya hall fame. Again, anything else from that. I.

"Winnie plays podcast, which Levine Brian rob Paul Pierce bureau, not sorry for posting a video with strippers on his Instagram. Not sorry for not passing the ball of the year he Welsh. Earlier in his NBA career and his Boston Celtics career. Have you been keeping up? You're going to Springfield this weekend. Pierce getting inducted into the Hall of Fame this weekend. Kevin Garnett will be presenting him. Will you be in attendance for this? I will not be in attendance. Are we intended? They do press conferences on Friday and ask me a mohegan sun. And then the actual induction will be on Saturday. So I will be in attendance Friday for the press conferences will be watching remotely things on Saturday night, but that is they have to say, we will get into this later, but they have to save KG introducing pierce for last, right? That's to be a requirement of the evening. I would hope. Who else is in the is in this class? It's like Bill Russell has a coach. I think Bosh, Chris Webber. Pierce is definitely the biggest name amongst former MBA players. Are you staying for are you staying at mohegan Friday night? I am not playing today. I believe my wife Kate would have a word of me to stand when he can sign up. I think in our 5 month old for I think babies are a lot of mohegan. I'm sure they're allowed. I probably saw way too many of them out in Las Vegas during summer league. But given the given the royal situation, what will probably save that trip for at least two weeks two. Hey, so we're going to talk a little bit more about this pierce thing towards the end of the podcast. But to start off really quick, if I gave you, let's say you had $500 burning a hole in your pocket. That you had that you felt comfortable that your wife said, okay, you can use this to gamble a little bit. If I gave you 8 to one odds on Jayson Tatum making the Hall of Fame, would you take that bet? 8 to one..

Yup you got a twenty six year old jealous of at eighteen year old. Because everybody's hyper again. If you think about this you you keep saying when two thousand eight here. It was paul. Pierce kevin garnett ray allen regime rondo and i got hurt going against lebron james dante with ben was in year twelve while sergei yet and ilgauskas. That's well you told me you tell me. Every day that lebron careful greatest ever okay. D. kennedy had aim opportunity. Kate him okay. Okay so you keep saying the series. That paul pierce one in two thousand eight in two thousand and ten lebron james every twenty seven eight and seven. Paul pierce averaged seventeen. Five and four. Now was he got. He got chris bosh. He got with the way. Lebron was three theories thirty one. Eight and four. Paul pierce was five five into wait a second. I pointed out what happened in game. Seven of two thousand eight. Help me out three. Ucla who outplayed whom in doing the money got pushed to the middle of title of ood. Outplay do i'm not doing. I'm knitting backs. We few individual game game. It's game seven. Also lebron gave salvageable only okay. Would that was his game. Bron game game six or two thousand twelve since we go pick individual games this head to had to have in two thousand twelve. Yeah he gives the celtics. Yeah but we're talking about. When when he was in his prime he was out of his prime by that point out of it when he had thirty he was pretty well washed. I did you know at nine guy. Just said he didn't take care of himself. Vote okay saliva. So how do you explain what happened in twenty ten win. Lebron had one of his greatest games. I thought it was his greatest. And they're up two games to one. And then lebron over three games lose he averages only twenty one points with six turnovers again six turnovers he had nine hundred thousand total turnovers. Three games helped me out you. How do you explain it. How do you defend. You can't because what they had was defensive player of the year and kevin garnett had big perk and they did a great job of wallie him off so paul. Pierce always had helped you. But what happened. Will lebron got. That was equal. Paul pierce help. How many times did they win the series. Because he what you do is that you always say lebron was the best player. He should overcome all obstacles but to never say that about law. Michael you never said that about that. They should overcome all obstacles. No matter the circumstances but only lebron supposed to do that. Okay i give you that. Ultimately lebron was much. Better than paul pierce. I give you that. But the point was paul. Pierce was a very credible rival from eight to two thousand ten. When the money was on the table. It was paul. Your head the betaine okay. But he was the truth. He was the best player on his. Get mosquito so if if not i hall of famer sure is going to be a first bell hall of fame. I think you would be a bailed hall of famer in basket. But i'm saying so which one of those guys so know. Dhillon with gas wallace finally went to the hall of fame. He one of those guys is going to the hall of fame. Okay he got three guys in their starting lineup. Rondo probably going to be a hall of famer mo williams on that team to help. He's good he was an all star. Introduce get i'm just case hollow wasn't blake griffin and all star was the de'andre joined the all-star okay. You want to take all stars. Even though he was many many years ago. You say what you do skip. Paul pierce has never been a rival the hammer rivals skill. Are you kidding the hammer. He owned him through two thousand ten owned him. No no just flat out only made him quit. According to dan gilbert made him to dan owners to wrote he quit dan. Gilbert is jilted lover. You know what happens when people break up. They say you were terrible. You can do this. You couldn't do that. They they never said we were together and everything was going. Great things. don't go right. You say all these negative things because you try to paint a negative light but guess what even though dan gilbert fan all dead who got their ads it like a tonight down the fort lauderdale to have a meeting with rich. Paul lebron james. Tell the people at home who did that ilgauskas. Yoke was he was ilgauskas giver. But he'll gossip is on the flight us. You ask scion. Why would you talk about a guy that quit my god. That was the proof. clay grail. Why would you do that that may acquittal your ball club well. He's still believes that he. You see what you're saying. You say things when you hurt okay. I'm just telling you. He was a very credible rival because he beat lebron when it matters the most in two thousand eight and two thousand ten in the point was that he never let it go. he never sold out two lebron way. Everybody does because he's facing we've never buddied up. He never got close. He never befriended lebron and i respected that. He did not believe that man was the truth. He believed that under fire under the greatest pressure game. Seven of two thousand eight. He would come apart. That's what paul pierce always believed. We love to say that he came apart when you got the better team. What happened when lebron had a comparable team. Why didn't he come apart there. Why couldn't paul pierce oldest feet to the fire. You remember when. Paul pierce went to the brooklyn. Nets lebron james. Yeah i got it. He's not there. He dropped forty nine on his head. He broke the lebron james taylor. He'll ono because he broke them up in boston. What did they do. Feel kevin gardner. Paul pierce went to brooklyn they digital joe johnson and william. He brought them up. Cagey ended up going back to minnesota. Paul pierce bounced around like a shell of himself by that point because he did not stare you say well what did you tell me.

It's like all you want to do is talk about lebron. Yeah that's what we do. I love to talk about lebron because he is the most interesting man in sports. Skew is the drama king.

"paul pierce" Discussed on Frank Michael Smith Show

"What's going on? It's Frank. Michael Smith. And they were talking about Paul Peirce. She just got fired by ESPN. Of course, you know that already what I'm giving you in this video is my opinion of what's actually going on behind the scenes here. I don't have any inside source, but I do have an opinion of what the situation says about a larger part of society and it's not good. So what I'll do is I'll show you the video and then we'll give you my opinion might takes afterwards. Let's run it off. Do you feel like some money girl? Stop playing Monica? What you going off birth? All right. So I've seen that video three or four times now and what strikes me about it is not actually what's going on. Cuz that's Paul's personal life. You want to have a party everything seems legal by all means do it not a good idea to broadcast it but I don't care. I'm not going to judge him for having a party looks like he's having a good time. No one's getting hurt. What I what strikes me is the Monica part this person named Monica who shouts out. It's really hard to tell if she actually knows this person or if this is just another random person commenting on the live Paul's having such a good time. He's cross faded and he's like Monica black girls named I got girls here. I'm getting a massage. Come on over. Everybody is invited. Especially you Monica come on over to the party. I actually think that's a more likely case dead. Then someone named Monica that's his friend is like what you're doing right now seems great. Like let me join you because everyone that's in a sober State could probably tell what's going on in Paul's IG live is not a good idea if people don't really get in trouble for doing this anymore. I'm surprised it even happened people are smarter than that now and that's all address this part of it really quickly. Totally understand why ESPN fired them. It makes sense owned by Disney family-friendly company can't have that stuff. There's a New York Times report that said if someone filmed him while this was happening and he didn't know they probably wouldn't have fired him. But since he chose to put it out on his own platform. Add to fire him but that's not the point of this video. The point of this video is the larger hypocrisy of America. So let me break it down like this in our culture that we consume guns drugs sex, you know through things like I've even seen on espm them playing the the Meg the stallion song the body ADI ADI, whatever I like the songs all about sex ESPN's okay to play that on games CBS is all right hearing her performance and the Grammys ESPN releases a swimsuit edition, you know kids play GTA off all these rappers rap about selling drugs. We are cool with all of this and I'm not saying I'm not cool with it. I'm cool with it. We're all cool with it. But then when when someone shows you them having a party smoking some leave weed, which is legal in California having some drinks also legal the girls legal when someone shows you that this them You've been consuming and culture all along then all of a sudden. It's not okay. I have to say once again. I understand what u s p n fired him. That's not what I'm getting at here. What I'm getting at is the larger black point of society where we say yes to this stuff. But when it showed to us we say no we clown you you make fun of you. We troll you why you can't bear to see you can only hear about it. Give me a break. You know, I feel bad for Paul Peirce in this respect and good for him for posting the videos of where he's saying smile get up, you know, he's taking it lightly Paul. She is going to be fine. He's made so much money in the NBA so much money did ESPN people don't know this ESPN contracts. They're still in the millions of dollars. He is going to be good. You get one offer all Thursday $250,000 to host a show with exotic dancers. I think he's going to pass on that probably won't be as best offer. But the point is he's going to be good. Paul Peirce is chilling and it's just it's sad that page. Want to treat other people this way. I just have a hard time understanding the double standard and the apocracy if at all so make of that what you will pause just fired by ESPN from Michael Smith reaction tomorrow for anniversary of the first ever video. I posted it's been one year since I've been a Creator didn't think that I would be leading into that with Paul Pierce's firing party. But here we are twenty Twenty-One. All right, that's it. That's a wrap..

The Return of Playoff Rondo

The Lead

The Return of Playoff Rondo

"So Bill Game One against Houston was Rozan rondos first game nearly six months. Can you break down everything that he went through with injuries? Yeah. It was interesting because this is a guy who has been slowly it feels like kind of breaking down as he's gotten older he had two broken fingers on his right hand last year his first year with the Lakers. This year he had a calf injury. He had an aversion fracture in his right ring finger and this is all before we get to March and the shutdown from the pandemic. So the Lakers are off for four months they go to. ORLANDO. Rajon Rondo is with the team their first practice inside the bubble Lakers guard Rajon Rondo has suffered a broken right thumb in. He's expected to return to full basketball activities in six to eight weeks, he's going to undergo surgery to repair the fact fracture this week. So he leaves the bubble has surgery. He's out for another six weeks or so the Lakers have a first round series against the Blazers Rondo, comes back to the bubble and is actually cleared to play for game three against the Portland Trailblazers, he's on the court getting ready. For that Game Rondo was listed as active tonight for the Lakers but was a late scratch with back spasms that happened. So, by the time, we got to game one of the second round against the rockets. There was kind of this sense of porcelain Rondo forget about it what level, but is he just going to be healthy enough to play and be able to stay healthy to make a contribution to this team? What does he had to say about all of these injuries he basically downplayed the injuries and said that these are the sorts of things that are going to frustrate. Anyone was very frustrating injury and step back I'm my career fourteen years have. Everything happens for a reason. Obsolete man says talks we. Still for the moment but the timing of this latest injury, the broken thumb and the back spasms I think particularly frustrating for him because this is a guy whose entire reputation and career is built on playoff performance on being a guy who really ramps it up in the postseason. Early, in his career uses a second your point guard with the Celtics out of Kentucky playing with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Paul. Pierce and he ended up playing an instrumental role. You remember the two thousand, eight finals against the Lakers decisive blowout game. You know he had twenty one points against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers twenty one point seven rebounds eight assists six steals to give the Celtics a championship for that story franchises nearly ovation barrage. You've seen it win Lebron was in Miami. If you remember game three of these conference semi finals Rondo dislocated his elbow. Oh. Wow. Left arm hyper-extended boy. Didn't see it on that I replay certainly. Saw It there. When back to the locker room pop back in came back onto the court to help the Celtics with game. Time is pad. Rajon Rondo expired the crowd rare Boston. We've seen it time and time again in his career in these big moments, it's not superhuman. But when you take a player who is seen as a high level, but not superstar player can a hitting that superstar switch when the playoffs come then obviously a legend starts to grow. And for him did have another injury right when the Lakers were expecting to get him at his best was extremely frustrating. But the timing actually ended up working out he made it back for the second round series against the rockets and as we've seen was really no worse for the wear the Lakers got blown out by the rockets in game one. They're all going to be in a good mood tonight as the Houston Rockets when it one twelve to ninety seven. But after that, they rattled off four straight wins how much credit do you think Rondo deserves further taking that series. So easily I think you could make an argument that without Rajon Rondo certainly that the Lakers wouldn't have off the next four wins, but he was instrumental in games two and three and four also, but specifically games two and three with his performance in the fourth quarter game too. He knocked down a late jump shot to kind of hold off the rockets and what was a close game Rondo two. Point jump shot that's Rajon Rondo with a bucket right there ten points nine assists for Rondo and then engaged three. He was actually the guy who is Lebron James on the bench to start the fourth quarter in what was a close game at the start of that period he either scored or assisted on Lakers I eight possessions of that quarter to help kind of turn what had been another tight close game into a rout for the Lakers. Rondo. He'll three and Rondo hits another one largest laker lead tonight Rondo has. Been Spectacular and a nice Lee for Kuzma. This is sort of how his reputation has been built. But this also is kind of out of line with the way he's played for the Lakers over his first two years. He hasn't been the guy who has come up in the big moments or been clutch. You've seen the decline of a player who's in his mid thirties and has been in the League for fourteen years, but there has always been this belief from the Lakers that when the playoffs come that he. Would step up and have those sort of vintage Rondo performances and so what you saw was sort of this return to form that the Lakers have always promised would be there and you saw not only offensively. But also defensively when Houston started to make runs, it was Rajon Rondo who was picking up James Harden full court and pestering him into turnovers they double team Arden and get a steal and another round of bucket. That's a ten old laker run hard was trying to go behind the back Rondo was right there. In both game two in game three second-half possessions where rondos picking up James Harden. The former MVP of the league, hounding him into a turnover, taking his pocket and going the other way for layup that completely shifted momentum and those both are Lakers win. So when you look at what Rondo did in those two games, I, think you could easily say that the Lakers could have been down two. Oh, two one in the series instead of kind of romping to a five game series victory.

Mind, Body Connection

"Hi Everyone, I'm Oprah. Winfrey would you answer true or false? Two the following statement my emotions and my thoughts have a direct bearing on how physically healthy I am, and I'm sick and my mental attitude can help to make me well well. My guest say that both are true that there is a crucial link between the mind and the body. My first guest is a surgeon who works with cancer patients that other doctors have sent home to die. He tells them. To Abandon Conventional Treatments like chemotherapy, but to combine them with a whole new belief system about life, and the purpose for living his remarkable results are documented in his book. It's called. Love Medicine and miracle. Welcome Dr Bernie, Siegel to. My second guest says that there is a direct connection between our emotions and our vulnerability to disease. Specifically, he says that certain emotions increase the risk of strokes and may even trigger certain viruses to cause disease. He even says that tumors have been known to shrink if a patient thinks them smaller welcome, clinical psychologist and author of Super Immunity, Dr Paul Pierce saw walking. If you can think certain tumors smaller, why can't you think other things? Why can't you if you have colon cancer? Why can't you think that you don't have it or if you have a heart murmur? Why can't you think that you don't have it? Why do you have control over some things and not control over others point a great deal of control everything right ideas at every thought you. You have results in a shower of chemicals that alter the body. It's defense system its immune system. It's healing capacity. There's a healer within that we have control over there is disease. There are things that break in US illnesses, a natural part of living, but we all get sick. Sometimes we can find that healer within somebody what said it. You know that God cures. The doctor sends the bill. That must have been dad who said back. And you have documented many many cases of people who? Appear to have miracles in their life, but you say there's no such thing as Miracle Yeah. Needs in his book cancer ward used the term self-induced healing. Yes, the interesting thing about medicine. If you get back to bills in business medicine, the only business that has not studied suggests we do a lot to people who don't do well. Nobody stops and says why don't you get cancer? Why don't you AIDS when you meet the AIDS virus? And what I'm saying is? If you study survivors and you study success, you have something to teach. It is not an accident when you don't die when you're supposed to according to a doctor. What is it? It is a change in you and a change in your life. That's part of what we're talking about. There are things called. Neuro receptors you our body mind. You are not a body and mind if you change your disease changes because your body changes really yes. You're not your body and mind. You're not just a body, or you want some interesting. Yeah, facts, things like people with multiple personalities, yes, can have a disease in one personality, not in another can have an allergy in personality, not in another studying, and this goes all around the planet. This fascinating, yes. Yeah nobody ever told me that in medical school. Nobody ever told me in nineteen, thirty three I think it was Carl Jung interpreted the dream and made a physical diagnosis so I work with dreams with drawings. You're what's going on in your body. We can bring that awareness out. So does this mean that each of us has control over our diseases remarkably slow listen to a bunch of surprising things never taught me in school, either where the only animal in the world dies on a given day of the week more than other days. That is Mondays people, the majority of people who have a heart home let me. Let me interrupt this for one second, because that's very important statement number one is we all die someday? Get the bad news over in the beginning of the program. Death is not a failure. Okay, but the hospital everybody dies at two in the morning. We have incredible control over when we die now there's a reason i. Well my communist try dying Newnan Hospital. They won't let because reputation is based on. You're not dying and the other is families that you don't say to each other I love you, you say. You're rotten, mother, kid, you know father, so you die at two in the families asleep or left, but if you have that kind of control over turning off your live. You also have a lot of control over turning the mind. Remarkably so when you have gall bladder surgery. Room faces trees instead of a wall. You're out about a week earlier

Finding Happiness

"Most of us get sad depressed when things get tough and it's considered a normal reaction today. We're going to talk about what's considered the abnormal response to life's problems. What my first guess calls Super Joy in fact? That's the title of Doctor. Paul Pierce Cells Book. It's called Super Joy. He says it. Modern psychology has really done us a disservice by encouraging us to adapt and handle stress to work hard. Achieve our goals. What's missing he says is our ability to experience just plain unadulterated joy about life. My next guest has what has to be one of the simplest outlooks on life that any grown man could have book is called. All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten. Robert Fulcrum says all this talk about the examined. Life and self actualization might be fine for some folks but all he really needs to know he learned in kindergarten. My next guest put the lessons. He's learned about getting the most out of life. Call the power in you. We know him from his famous Amos chocolate chip cookies and now while Amos reveals the personal struggles that he's endured and the attitudes it helped him find inner strength. Welcome my guests take each book at a time? One two three three six. And then we'll all talk okay sure First of all super joy is about us not being able to or adjusting to stress in a way that we should rather than doing what psychologists have told us over. The years is normal working with patients for seventeen years. We learned something very early. That psychology and psychiatry has focused on the sick or the absence of symptoms. It hasn't focused on those people who celebrated every day who were very very healthy. We learned that being normal is very dangerous to your health. Very your passed a man on on the road the other day and he's driving this big Mercedes car with motivational tapes. Probably playing in his ear talking about his car phone. Probably on the way to a meditation class to learn to relax. We work harder than that. Shea. And he's commended for this. So what therapists have become. At least in my estimation in our research is really like lifeguards by a big river. People fall this river. They almost drowned. We pluck them out. Resuscitate them and throw them back in. We don't ask. Maybe that rivers running too fast. Maybe there's something more to life than we're doing right now. So you studied people who have the the joy response naturally and there about twenty percent of the population twenty percent. You see for example if you go to a picnic and eat bad foods spoiled potato salad. Eighty percent of the people get sick but twenty percent of those people tend to not get sick by the study those people. Why don't they? And the reason I started to look at those healthy people who don't seem to to jog but stay healthy. Eat fiver turned into a brick. They help in any way and what it was was very obvious. They had broken stress addiction. They weren't addicted to that stress anymore. They were free and what really drove the message. Home was the first woman I interviewed. Seventeen years ago a survivor of the Holocaust and I saw her in the hospital with a very non serious illness and she was smiling. They wanted her out of the hospital because she kept singing and laughing and bothering all of the rest of the patient so I went to see her. She had the tattoo on her wrist. That terrible tattoo and I said all my word look at that and she said you like my birth mark. I said that's a death mark. Isn't it she said the day they stamped that on me? I knew they weren't going to kill me now. Why did she have? That was my interest in writing Super Joy. I wanted to know why some people survive anyway. Why can they be so abnormal? Why aren't they quotes well adjusted? Why are they weird enough? Like some of the people here and my esteemed colleagues to break away from the system. That's what they've done. And so you talk about that too and all I need to know learned in kindergarten. You talk about the Good Samaritan Story and how that affected the guy who who was stopped by the Good Samaritan details about that absolutely but the bottom line of this whole discussion has to do with the fact that whatever it is that we're all looking for it is not something that you have to go out there and get it is something that you have and something that you give away and in the context of that your life is meaningful. That's the biggest distinction. I find between the people who are suffering from stress in those who are not you. You're talking about the Jewish story of the Holocaust. One time. I was working as a cowboy and a dude ranch in the night manager of this was a guy who'd been through Auschwitz and I was complaining terribly bitterly about the fact that three days in a row. We'd head weenies and Sauerkraut for lunch. Quit he said listen to me. Says you break your neck? You got a problem you go to rush Mitch. The problem all the rest of inconvenience you got to figure out the difference between inconvenience and problems. Yeah and the point of the Good Samaritan story did the man who was helped by the Good Samaritan was grateful that he was helped or did he complain about all the other people who passed and did not help him well. We've been puzzling. That went out for a long. And you see the answer to that in terms of what you project onto it rather than what the story actually tells you it's very interesting you're talking about Auschwitz. Because I went to see Mississippi Burning. Went to see it with some friends who came out saying This makes me really hate white people and I said you know does the exact opposite to me. I look at that film and I look at our history black people in this country and I think of what other black people have sacrificed in order for me to be where I am and I just WanNa make what I have better so that their legacy would not be legacy lived in vain instead of carrying the bitterness. Our guests on one of those super joy people and say I don't look at it and say this makes me mad. I look at it and say well look at what what people have sacrificed me and I can do so much more to have so much more. You know what reason for cynicism is. There's lots of reasons for cynicism. Trouble is it doesn't help. It doesn't help at all. Isn't the bottom line though love while he isn't about unless I don't care what the question is. Love is the answer loving yourself first. Because if you don't have love for yourself then you can't give it to others and that's a major problem. I think is is low. Self esteem like a love for oneself so we're projecting all of these negative images out onto the world

"Bet on the raptors looking good today, because this is on satisfying way to beat the warriors. It is on satisfying because you'd like to see them at full strength. But to me, it's the only way to beat the warriors, I think it is the only way to beat the warriors. Although the way they shot last night, the rap, there's, I'm not certain that game doesn't beat the warriors at full straight. Did they shot very well STAN and you and your brother have been saying for a long time, it's so often about just makes and MRs Toronto got so many good looks at the end of game too, and they just weren't making anything. And so what you end up seeing last night, and I wanna get to a number of different things in terms of game analysis. But the first thing I wanna point out the big story of the day. Our thanks to me. No Hacen for breaking it here on our air, shaming Paul Pearson away that made Paul Pierce have to admit it on air. Stan, I don't know if standing. Seeing this standard. Are you familiar with Wyatt is Paul Pierce ended up in a wheelchair eleven years ago during a finals game and then was back on the court, you know a minute later. Well now I'm not I'm not familiar with what a mean broke. So, so what, what do you what do you think happened there? When I tell you eleven years ago. Paul Pierce was carted off the court in, you know, wheelchair and then reemerged a minute or two later. What are your thoughts there? I don't have any tank. Well, here's the explanation from Paul Pierce last night. And our thanks to Michelle Beedle for cornering him on it and doing some important exploratory journalism here, eleven years ago today. Wheelchaired off the floor for reasons. He will keep. Just go to about. About a why did you need a wheelchair to get to the second? Went down. Streaking okay. So he pooped himself, and that he was trying to conceal it. And I understand in the finals. There are a lot of people watching. Lutely, gotta you gotta go. Didn't you tell us stand that one time you had a player do that? Just run right off the court because he. Chapin more than once. I mean not while the game is going on. But, you know, you get like time out, you know, they'll tell you like I needed time out you call time out and they're gone. Here's his walking back this morning, by the way, everything he said last night. Yeah. Now, he was he was joking disappointing. What about guys on the coaching staff like do you guys have a look the give each other? If you gotta run back to the bathroom faster and a quarter, I've actually never had anybody leave the bench. But Billy Donovan told a funny story I forget where they were playing. He was at Florida. And he had to ask somebody like, where's the nearest bathroom, and it was up like he went up through the crowd, and ran onto the concourse to go to the bathroom earn a game like the guy next to him was looking at him like, aren't you the Florida coach, you know, but that was the closest place. So he just ran up onto the concourse, and then came back down to the bench. It is really unfortunate the poll pierces now walking this back because. It was trending right when this happened eleven years ago. Everybody was talking about why does Paul Pierce need a wheelchair to come off the course off the court. And I so you're choosing their between the shame of pooping yourself and appearing weak, and he chose to appear weak. Yeah, he was carried off the court originally. He was carried off by a couple of teammates and a couple of team. Doctors. He didn't get into the wheelchair until he was in the tunnel. And then they took them from the tunnel to the locker room and he came back to baskets later. It was sixty to fifty eight when he left sixty two when Paul Pierce game back knowing what we do now, seeing the video and his face the way. He's grimacing. Yeah, it's really funny. I want to ask you something here before we analyzed this game. Stan, did you see what happened with between Richard Jefferson and Damon Jones on, on get up because I did. Okay. So then you want to explain it to people go ahead and explain to people what happened. There was just an argument on on on LeBron's greatness and Damon Jones.

"He was given to me that I read this as being about Paul Pierce. And you know, boy, I wish I'd had you know, shack and LeBron on my team. So I could have won a couple more rings. That's how I read it. Anyway. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, certainly these are the things that incredibly successful multimillionaires go to bed ruing at the end of the night. You know, if only if only I'd had shack on my team when I was twenty five, you know, it does say a lot about him the NBA players roll happy, David back when Paul Pierce was playing Elway turns out, that's a total. Now that wasn't the case. But I mentioned earlier, I don't know how it came together. I don't need. You didn't read this, Bomani Jones, tweeted view, go for it. No. I mean, I think it's good to go. It's it's good to reference this tweet that Bomani Jones said we're obviously has a lot of experience working on ESPN television. Where he said, the most fascinating thing about this whole thing is is to me to me is that Paul at some point had to say, yo, let's do this on the show, or at least agree to it. That's amazing on about fifteen levels. I mean, sure maybe he's just saying. All right. We are. What's what's our b-block? We don't have anything. So I'm willing to do it. But it's a weird thing. Just to sort of say, you know, sure, let's let's let's let's have this argument that the whole big or maybe the Harry. NBA countdown interesting, which is when a low key kind of not interesting for a really long time and less interesting than Rachel Nichols. In the daytime, how do we how do we make Pierce interesting? How about that as a television commentator? I know defend your legacy versus Dwayne Wade. Oh, wow. He's interesting. Here we go amid to me it's like the imperatives of of TV of nothing else. And even that particular show. It's like all of a sudden like, oh, this is good. Here. We go watch this. Yeah. Yeah. No. It would be it would be interesting to see, you know, how many how many players would put themselves on would raise their hand and put themselves on the list to say, it'd be better than Dwayne Wade. If I had checking LeBron at various points in my career, should we quickly? Do the notebook dump? Let's do it couple twenty and twenty notes for you. I learned from the Twitter account of crank t Nelson. Oh, yeah. We may have a candidate name pund to compete with beta dork that was the name. Given to beta Aurora by Fox News is Kennedy crank cranky Nelson shares that there are people calling Bernie Sanders. David Bernard panders or Bernard slanders. So that's wait. Why bright on that was unclear? I think the best deal terro or whatever. Yeah. Or or going Beto beta Robert, you know, like, ha ha ha I know that you have a birth certificate name, you know, very strange. And just I guess, I guess it indicates if the best view is that it indicates that you are like that you are intending to make a joke. It is.

"What kind of chasing? Are they telling you it is? All right. So the way that they have it blocked off it appears that it's going to be on the sand. You know that big sandy strip that goes on for like half a mile before the water. They've cleared a lot of that area offshore. That's billy. That's just the shore. Well that. Yeah. That area that they've cleared that off and they set up homes that you need to be around. And then they have all these Cabanas and umbrellas that are not normally here that are set up and I'm hoping they don't crash into those because that's right by. Where we're standing. But there's no one in that area for some reason. So I figured that'd be a good place to all right. We'll stay there. And you tell us when you've got something when you've been snared somebody maybe could talk to an extra interview and extra on air, Billy. I feel like you should find someone in management and just walk in like, hey, I showed up for my part. I'm in the scene today. And just try to finagle your way into this movie or talk to an extra and say how much you getting paid for this. We might give you a little bit more money and you're at Phnom in.

"Okay. Because I when I view of the the sad shack ears. I think of Boston not Cleveland not anywhere else. Not not not Phoenix. Number was. I think it was number thirty six everything about it was just like, oh, yeah. He was thirty six as a as a Celtic, wait a minute. How long was he his son? Usually, I think he made an all star game is a Phoenix, son. So it can't be that. And he he had the whole Jabber walkies thing as a son. I think he did he had that. I don't know if he made the all star game. But he did have that years of sun where he averaged it looks like he averaged seventeen point eight points per game nine boards the last good season for shack. Okay. So Shaquille O'Neal is. Now, we we're talking about we were talking about all payers. And we were talking about the power rankings, which we will get back to Paul Pearson. How disrespectful everyone on the internet? And at ESPN was Tim could Lord did he take a beating from Jalen rose and Michelle Beedle as if his resume wasn't better than Jalen Rose's. Jalen rose is reading Dwayne Wade's resume too Paul peers, I felt like Paul Pierce should have pivoted and just read his resume compared to Jalen and see how he felt about it. Jalen wasn't the one saying that, you know, if Jalen did say that Paul Pierce probably would have said that too. I understand. But again, we are this is one of the things that's always happening in sports. We argue about and I know we're doing it this week in south Florida. We're arguing about who had the most emotional connection as the south Florida athlete to this city. Was it Dwayne Wade? Or was it Dan Marino. Whatever it is. We're arguing we are. Splitting hairs. I believe. The Dwayne Wade was a good deal better than Paul Pierce. I understand why Paul Pierce doesn't think that. And I I don't and and there's not I mean, a good deal better. Paul Pierce was a great scorer. Wade is better. How about did? You see what Gabriel union did like she was bothered by it. She she called out Paul Pierce on Twitter by name and call. It's sad that he would tear down another man. And I was just thinking like can't we all laugh at this who repeat offender to remember tour down at Thomas? Remember when Thomas was trying to have a day on Paul Pierce night. Not going to happen. Look. We have found the stugatz of the ESPN retired hall of fame athlete division. Because Paul Pierce says the things no one else is willing to say why because they're dumb.

Isaiah Thomas wears green sneakers as nod to Celtics in return to Boston

"On the two thousand sixteen seventeen season. Isaiah Thomas lead the NBA in fourth quarter, scoring he was the closer. And of course, so much has changed since that fateful spring in which his sister died far more important than the basketball, but his sister China died in a car accident in Washington state he played anyway. So this was the eve of their opening round series against the Chicago Bulls. He played anyway, they dropped the first two games in Boston. And then won the next four in a row. I can remember all of this like it was yesterday. They ended up making it to the Eastern Conference finals. And do you know that at the time? Isaiah Thomas had a pair of green and gold sneakers design for the NBA finals they were for the finals. They obviously didn't make it to the finals. But he wore those same shoes. On Monday night in his healthy return. You may remember the controversy last year. I've never talked so much about tribute videos of my life. Oh, make me roll. My eyes Burr member. There was a Paul Pierce night planned to honor the future hall of Famer a longtime Celtic, and he put up a stink publicly when it appeared. As though the Celtics were also going to air tribute video fries Ahah Thomas on the same night. So it was a night when the. Shoot. What team was he within the Cavaliers? I guess I don't know. He's changed team. So many times I made that actually might have been. I think it became a moot point. Right. He was with the Cavaliers he ended up before the trade deadline. Getting ship to Los Angeles. And then it didn't matter because he wasn't with the Cavaliers when they were in Boston. And so Paul Pierce had his night without any controversy. And Thomas has been back or his teams have been back. He's played for now. Three teams since Boston. But this was the first time he was healthy enough to be on the court. He only played seven minutes though. When it looked like he was nervous or maybe the news that he's being dropped from the nuggets rotation maybe that room for a loop. I it certainly would most human beings who play sport for a living. And so it wasn't a great night for him. But they did have the video was some really cool moments from his time in Boston. He was all heart, heart and smarts. That's the hashtag that I use for that particular edition of the Boston Celtics who seem like they overachieved, and they Thomas the little engine that could he was a big reason why. But man life comes at fast that was only a year and a half ago. And now think about the arc of Thomas's career any injuries. Of course, that have really changed his speed and his

NBA, Depression and Rosen discussed on The Undefeated

"PIN senior writer, Jackie MacMullan sat down with several NBA players to talk about mental health in the NBA, Chris, Bosh, Kevin love tomorrow, Rosen, and Paul Pierce to name just a few have opened up about their struggles with depression and anxiety then be has now hired Dr William Param as its first director of mental health and wellness. Should this prompt the NBA to have some sort of mental health policy or plan for players struggling with these issues t start with you? I would say absolutely. Self care is just as important as physical care and treatment. And to be honest, it just seems logical that players NBA NFL any professional sport that athletes would kind of feel this amount of pressure to wear dealing with depression and anxiety seems like it's something that could logically happen. I mean, you've got pressure from your. Teammates, you got pressure from the fans with social media. They're always like direct access pressure to you all the time. You got pressure from your family. They don't see you as often or have expectations for you and your downtime. You get pressure from executives, especially mentioned into Doron Dhamar under Rosen, who thought that he had some form of transfer loyalty with people in the Toronto organization and then ends up being traded. So there's there and then they have pressure from themselves. I'm sure. I mean, everyone has expectations of themselves. I mean, we're not even athletes in. I'm pretty sure all of us on this podcast, have expectations for ourselves and how we feel when we don't meet them. So it makes a lot of sense that there would be that there will be mental health struggles among athletes. And so I do think it's very important for the NBA to have done. This, I think is also important to make sure that there's protection for them for the players for this kind of thing. Because as I've been reading, I've seen that owners have been saying that if this is something that we do that they want to have. Access to the records. And as you know, most medical records in some form are are confidential, and I think that in their mind, I think the argument is, you know, we have access to the players physical record, so we're able to make decisions on what we wanna do based on a player's physical health. We should also do the same for someone's mental health, and I think that's where I probably disagree with the owners in that sense because a lot of times having that confidentiality is what helps you to progress in what helps you to get
