"The morning on my talking to seven one everything entertainment I'm chase with don Stephanie Kenny and all of you for listening thank you for being here several I don't need to tell you waking up this morning several huge stories of the Grammys and unfortunately sadly the tragic passing of NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his beloved daughter Gigi and seven others the numbers kept moving throughout the day but just horrible just absolute horrible in a helicopter crash I just outside of Los Angeles yesterday morning joining us with some perspective on Colby's legacy is of the ring leader of score north and one of the whole the host of Mackey and Judd four to six PM our good friend Phil Mackey good morning fell AJ's how how are you staff are you done one show I wish it was on a better occasion that we had you here Phil I want you to talk about especially for the non sports fan maybe someone who doesn't follow basketball the NBA or the sports world as closely as you why is it what is it about Colby that puts him in the upper echelon of of celebrity joining the ranks of other folks that can go by one name lebron Jordan tiger in what was it about Colby I I think it's a combination of I I think he's just one of the more uniquely talented humans of the last fifty years but he's a he's he's he's uniquely tell these he's also flawed I think people can relate to some of the missteps he's had in his life I mean if you want to get on the list of things that he is athletically he is in the ninety nine point nine nine nine th percentile competitively he won five championships you want scored eighty one points in a single NBA basketball game he once walked to the free throw line with a torn Achilles tendon and knocked down both free throws creatively he won an Oscar two years ago for for a short piece he wrote any and he has spent the last few years as an ambassador for women's basketball and I think he viewed his daughter not necessarily because it because it was his vision I think it was because it was Gigi's vision I think they both viewed her as someone who is gonna take women's basketball to an even different level one she became sixteen seventeen eighteen years old and so he's he speaks three languages fluently he's just all of the he he really is an athletic renaissance man the last fifteen or twenty years if you grew up I was born in nineteen eighty five and I've been spending a lot of time thinking about yeah I've never met Kobe Bryant but why is it that I've spent the last eighteen hours just unable to function basically a lot of people listening probably can relate to when prince passed away a few years ago I definitely feel that way and I don't think it's been it has nothing to do with whether you knew them personally I think it's how much time they spent in your consciousness how much time were they part of your mind in your life and that being ripped away I think that's why a lot of people are feeling it today and appreciating the gifts and the artistry that they had but also the authenticity of the man right and you know you it's one thing to have a gaffe whether it's sports or arts but to take that gift and to use it to better your world your environment to make mistakes admit those mistakes and move forward in a way that is just an admirable just admirable talented people there's a lot of crappy talented people radio soul when you can get someone that learns from their mistakes they do good in the world and they realize the gifts that they have it is sad at that they're gone so ya there's something about artists there something about musicians be of musical artists and athletes that represent time stamps in our lives too and I think it's easy to get really reflective when prince or Kobe when someone who tell the S. yes right go down the list absolutely and do anything to fill and I'm glad you brought up the date and what he's meant to you because they it also don't you think it also adds to his status the fact that you had Jordan and I I'm older we're all of us on the show were slightly older than you and and I grew up more in the era of Jordan and not living in Chicago you know the bulls were everywhere Pippin and and rod men and and Jordan and when Jordan retired I I think it's fair to say and with my shallow base of knowledge in sports many people thought okay well there's Haley's comet and we're never gonna see the likes of that again and then you have Colby who fill correct me if I'm wrong it came as close in the ninety of lebron but I'm talking right after Jordan Colby came as close as your you can possibly get to being Jordan two point no it my wrong on that now you're you're a hundred percent right inside there's a video floating around on Twitter this morning I don't I don't know who tweeted this out but Kobe spent a lot of time when he was sixteen through twenty years old when he was when he was first coming into the NBA essentially trying to mimic Michael Jordan's game and there's a video it's like a two minute video of Michael Jordan highlights every other highlight with Kobe Bryant highlights the same fade away jump shots the same celebratory fist pump jumping in the air and it's so there were there was a period where I think he was just trying to be Michael Jordan and then eventually he found a way to bring his own personality into his creativity and I think I think you know he he if you were if you were born you know now if if you're twenty eight to thirty eight years old I think Kobe Bryant probably is your Michael Jordan and a lot of ways yes it was such a coincidence to that he played in the staples arena Sammy's was last night that all lot of LA is like a small town right they all know each other they all hang out the same places so it was really fascinating to see the impact of him as a sports person on the entertainment scene in that arena like I think people were really moved and shocked and saddened and it was interesting to see all that play out in real time last night at the Grammys I was I watch the entire sixty minute red carpet lead up to the to the seven o'clock start time yeah it it actually was was pretty uncomfortable because I I some celebrities and some of the host wanted to loop in the Kobe right theme and then I almost felt like the rest of it was a little bit forced and I remember one of the hosts he made mention Hey our red carpet ceremonies got thrown off because like Liz was supposed to come up and talk and she wouldn't want to its lasses respect that let's let let's just let Colby be a theme here and I'm I'm glad that for the for our actual award show that they did they did make Kobe a huge part of it is your right he is culturally culturally Los Angeles Kobe Bryant is a huge fixture in both of those bands Phil Mackey from score north joins us the end and it all I think it also speaks to his level of stardom the fact that and he and his role as a leader that you see you saw yesterday of folks might I told the story earlier I it was a a guide that had interviewed him many times and ESPN that had given this anecdote that said there was a young NFL player that was really struggling and Colby went out of his way to get that guy's number and call them and say Hey what do you need showing that Colby was a leader not just in the NBA but first sports in for professional sports in general did you see that is the case as well fell yes I think I think we're calling it mamba mentality so Kobe Bryant's nickname was the black mamba and he Jesse and just I guess just to sum it up briefly here he would go into dark places in his mind on the court that allowed him to score sixty points and and not be fatigued playing forty five minutes of the game and so he has built this it's turned into a brand now but he even built in Los Angeles and this is where they were flying to yesterday this massive youth basketball training facility called a by I like the mamba performance or something and you'll see if you just do a search through social media today just search mamba are a P. mama mama mentality a lot of people sort of channeling his twenty year mantra forks wheezing as much toothpaste out of the to whatever whatever talent level you have his motto is always out work your level of talent so that you reach your Max potential and that's that's the mob mentality yeah she was known not only for being a leader but he was known like Jordan for a full Roche's work ethic was he felt the media was just he worked he would the whole get there early state you know you you're the last one you're the last one to leave that was another thing that he mimicked Jordan he would he would know Tory Asli your practice might start at eight or nine o'clock in the morning for the Lakers and he would know Tory asleep be in the gym at two o'clock in the morning on a regular basis getting up his two thousand jump shots or whatever may be and that mentality because if you remember back twenty years ago Shaquille o'neal and Kobe Bryant were the two players the brought the Lakers back to prominence and Shaquille o'neal much more of a gregarious sort Hey we're just gonna have fun here on floppy ear and is going to be three hundred pounds and ball my way to the way I am and Kobe Bryant was I know I'm gonna be in the gym at two o'clock in the morning yeah they won three championships together but inch and by the way they've they've made up and in some of the posts that shack has put out in the last twenty four hours to or just make you you know make your eyes water blast on a so it's I I I I I just been it's been hard for I think for my generation of sports fans because like I said off the top of the segment here it's just something that has been it's been living in our heads in our consciousness that Kobe Bryant represents the last twenty years of being a basketball fan and now it's got it feels like prince or even Kirby Puckett for twenty plus years yeah yeah and we should know to in in Phil alluded to it in in a in a turn of phrase is someone emailed us did Kobe will obviously had a complicated legacy off off the court I want everyone to know we're not sidestepping it were not making him out to be a perfect guy but it is my feeling I think dawn Ackles my feeling here I find it cold in an appropriate to to focus on that chapter of his life less than twenty four hours after he has passed and his young daughter has passed on they'll be time to dissect that and and and go deeper into the complicated legacy of this man but I just want everyone to know we are aware of it it's we're not sidestepping it nor are we making it seem like this gentleman was perfect and without fault there's actually a wonderful very honest right up in the daily beast that perfectly illustrates the imperfection of this athletic genius and you can read it for yourself Donna my I don't want to speak for you but I I think you echo my feelings on that one yeah I just kinda email back and said yes an article if you want to know because the others and questions to us and it's like yeah those things happen but now is not the time to time place yeah really like it is he is each human has a place in the world and they make their marks and they make their mistakes and once someone is passed you don't want anyone to talk about your worst moment all and it doesn't serve anybody we don't learn from that well we aren't friendly compassion grace humility I mean if anything maybe he taught us some of those things I would I would just add one thing because I I I I I'm sort of coming from the point of you to that Hey it however you want to grieving react to this I'm not going to judge anybody I do think it's very likely that Kobe Bryant over the last sixteen years since the the sexual assault case that you're alluding to he it's very likely that he has evolved a lot as a human as well doesn't necessarily excuse what may or may not have happened behind closed doors but I think there's a I think there's another conversation for another day to to talk about redemption and what somebody has learned from their worst moment and and what they brought forward for the last fifteen to twenty years I'm not having like the person I was at twenty one absolutely nothing like I mean the same carcass but that's about the yeah judge you touched on something that I've been wondering about for a long time and you nailed it perfectly existing in your conscience and I I've had this feeling with a lot of celebrities passing over the last few years and you really feel it it it hits you in the feels in your goal why in the hell am I so upset by this and it's be it you're right they exist in our conscious every day or ever get a weekly and and that's that's how it plays out we can probably all sit here in court Kobe is on the list for me Dale Earnhardt I was a huge NASCAR Dale Earnhardt fan I stayed home from school the next day after Dale Earnhardt died right and you think like why why do I feel so much more not to not to you know rank sadness in our lives but why do I feel so much more sad.

"Is doing it in the midst of the big game. then. that's a ya a bit of a topic. I see that you know it like for instance I'm I'm scrolling through my Twitter feed and I I see Nick to Turow but you know. he's an actor and and sports fan. this is what it says but you know it. it is I believe John throws his brother he he posted a video all caps who cares how long the game is Bob it's a wild playoff game you know so that's probably some of the reaction from fans Hey I'm I'm watching this because this is what I like I'm a baseball fan it's the playoffs. here's a tweet from Phil Mackey Bob Costas is no longer broadcasting the actual game he's just teeing off on pace of play walks and home runs. super seventy sports I missed the Yankees twins game was Bob Costas able to squeeze in any play by play around telling us all how we should think. interesting to me. now that's his prerogative and he's. lucky enough that you know he's in a position where he could say that sort of stuff without repercussions or or fear of repercussions. but for it to happen on that the national broadcast during the. playoffs arm. is that something. you want to hear is that something your feeling or when it's playoff baseball are you saying give me playoff baseball. you know I I could I could do this topic any day almost. and I wouldn't expect it to be in October. but are are you excited that it's playoff baseball does that change your mind state. where are you Bob Costas you are you angry with with the person who's saying baseball's too slow or you know there's too many strikeouts in into many home runs when the playoffs are coming around. or are you that guy eight five five two one two four two two seven eight five five two one two four two two seven Jimmy Traina sweets Bob Costas guys just gave a lengthy lecture ripping this game for being unwatchable and Johns both completely ignored him and didn't even acknowledge what he said it was highly amusing Sir you Bob Costas or are you you John Smoltz you you're one of the people angry about people complaining about baseball because you love baseball or are you complaining about baseball even though it is the playoffs eight five five two one two four eight C.

"Something happened on. during the M. L. B. telecast last night that I find very interesting because look if we're being honest right. baseball during the course of the regular season. is not that much of a national sports radio topic towards sports talk topic period weight when you're discussing. local I depends on the market of course but there there are some markets where where baseball is is still huge and driving others wear not as much but are on the national level if you're you're watching a sports talk show or listening to one during the course of the regular season it hasn't been much of a of a topic and the times it is a topic is about some sort of confrontation or somebody getting thrown at or steroids back you know when when that was more of a thing and then lately it's been how do you fix baseball pace of play and and all those things is baseball broke Bubba and you know I I know people are tired of hearing that. and I know baseball fans to can be tired of hearing that where there are some fans who just are like Hey I I I like this I want to watch it right. but this year I've actually. anecdotally. noticed an interesting phenomenon which is that like hardcore baseball fans have. been frustrated you know the the. true outcome home run or or strike out nature of the sport lately has even rub some some baseball fans the wrong way where there there's not as much action it in a given game. you know where that consists slow it down of course that that's a constant topic but generally before when the those conversations that come up you get resistance from hardcore baseball guy who would say Hey that this is my favorite I don't care I I I love it it's the the beauty of the sport and again anecdotally I I don't have any like measurable quantifiable evidence of this but I've talked to. a bunch of baseball fans who have been upset this year and and sort of said that yeah they even they are on. are turned off a bit. now I would tend to just forget about that sort of thing when it comes to post season baseball. I would rather I would brush set aside. it's the playoffs. no nobody wants to hear that in the playoffs. that's when things you know come into a national focus. and I actually think for for baseball you know the the wild card games are some of the best things they have going and and I think you you saw that earlier this week and and the reason I say that is because yes they are are counter to the nature of the sport where there's a hundred and sixty two games and and you build the team for that and therefore a a single game elimination it is not doesn't correlate what with that though the way that the sport is designed or or the the sport is played a and I understand but for the the casual fan. there is something very interesting about such a high stakes game. once he moves on the other team loses it adds a sense of urgency something that that baseball is is oftentimes lacking I believe a sense of urgency but you get it. when you have. one team gone after after game it brings that sense of urgency that. the sport doesn't typically yeah but then I would have expected after that to get on you you you get the the post season and. maybe each and every game of the postseason wouldn't be leading national coverage but it would be more in the the zeitgeist then the regular season. Watson has been in we'd be talking more about the ins and outs of it no the the the Dodgers not starting Kershaw in in game one but winning that game anyway but then dropping game to wear with that this series tied now one out of peace and and Kershaw taking the the the loss in in that game which you know is not yet up a poor performance or anything but we know his postseason reputation topics like that it is what I would have expect it but what I what I found interesting is that last night on the broadcast itself on the M. L. B. broadcast the the Yankees game Yankees beat the twins to take a one nothing lead in that series tend to four. it was Bob Costas and and John Smoltz doing the commentary and Bob Costas who have associated I I suppose with baseball for a long time I I don't know where but Bob Costas does most of the time because he used to be a you know fixture in sports television and and be sort of is has moved away and I know we had a I think with football because he he started speaking out against head trauma in in the concussion issues in in football and therefore really. in broadcast the games anymore or be a part of the broadcast because he he had started to worked his way up away from the enjoyment of the of the sport due to that and and of course the sport doesn't want to be broadcasting that when they're they're having their their major games but he still does some MLB games in the in the still a big name. but last night in the midst of that broadcast he was going off about how on watchable this was. and. I find that interesting on a couple levels. one. you know Major League Baseball doesn't want that to be a topic of conversation on their broadcast. this is the playoffs. there there I'm sure tired of hearing about that a now if so when they have a playoff game involving the prestige franchise in the sport. they don't want the announcer talking about how the the product. isn't watchable. that's not going to go over so well. and smokes didn't say anything about it the other thing I I find intriguing about it is because Bob Costas theoretically is a baseball fan. or was a a baseball. so is he speaking for other baseball fans or is he you know. irritating baseball fans. and that's kind of like. what what I wanna figure out here because you're sitting there watching the game. are you. Bob Costas. and going to yourself. this is this is tough to watch. or. are you saying Hey I'm watching this I like this I chose to watch this why are you talking about how unwatchable it is it's the playoffs let's save that for sports talk radio in July. so I I would generally I wouldn't plan on doing a topic like this because it would be the playoffs because you know I I could I could ask where like playoff baseball ranks for you or something like that like amongst the the the toppings in sports but I wouldn't be going baseball is it even watchable when the playoffs are. but when the announcer on the game. number one team in the sport. is doing it in the midst of the big game. that's a yeah a bit of a topic. I see I you know it like for instance I'm I'm scrolling through my Twitter feed and I I see Nick to Turow you know. he's an actor and and sports fan. this is what it says but you know is it it is I believe John throws his brother he he posted a video all caps who cares how long the game is Bob it's a wild playoff game you know so that's probably some of the reaction from fans Hey I'm I'm watching this because this is what I like I'm a baseball fan it's the playoffs. here's a tweet from Phil Mackey Bob Costas is no longer broadcasting the actual game he's just teeing off on pace of play walks and home runs. super seventy sports I missed the Yankees twins game was Bob Costas able to squeeze in any play by play around telling us all how we should think. interesting to me. now that's his prerogative and he's. lucky enough that you know he's in a position where he could say that sort of stuff without repercussions are or fear of repercussions. but for it to happen on that the national broadcast during the playoffs I'm. is that something. you want to hear is that something your feeling or when it's playoff baseball are you saying give me playoff baseball. you know I I could I could do this topic any day almost. and I wouldn't expect it to be in October. but are are you excited that it's playoff baseball does that change your mind state. where are you Bob Costas you are you angry with with the person who saying baseball's too slow or you know there's too many strikeouts in in too many home runs when the playoffs are coming around. or are you that guy eight five five two one two four.

It's to the other Matt Matt Davis for the business or really the business of sports confused already. Talking about football. But there's that's because the accountancy firm Deloittes has published its latest list of the world's richest football clubs. So not who's on top of that money league. Real Madrid has clinched the top spots with Barcelona in second place, Real Madrid with revenues of around eight hundred million dollars last season knocked Manchester. United off the top spot. But there are record six clubs from the English Premiership in the top ten I spoke to Tim bridge from the Deloittes sports group. The surprise for rules really is now the domination of the Premier League in in the top ten and we've seen the share more English clubs in the top ten of Armani leaked and we have a half before and the dominance of the English clubs financially doesn't always necessarily linked to on pitch performances we've seen with you know, with the Spanish giants. Holding some of them not monopoly recently over the over the Champions League. Does that mean then that the richest clubs will always be the richest clubs? They'll never go back to the importers thing. That's a really interesting question. There is definitely of the true cycle is certainly not the case though that the richest are always just going to stay the richest. We've seen clips come in and out of our money league over recent years Leicester City when they won the Premier League and competed in the Champions League Romer of comeback into the money league, this shift from Italy, and your point is really interesting as well because I think that that's a very common perception really when people look at the financial results of football clubs. They think oh, it's not particularly influenced by anything that the business side of the clip may do, but I think in recent times is a change in the trends and a change in the type of people who are following football cheese almost the will of the millennial generation. Nowadays, they often will follow an individual player, and we see that this year more so than ever Patterson German, for example, reported record merchandising sales. They've reported commercial revenue growth as a result of individual player signings predominantly neymar junior on killing about the timber ridge from Deloitte, math, thank you. Now, let's hear about a court case that spans Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United Kingdom a father court in custody row is on trial with six others for pelting to throw sulfuric acid on his son at a retail park in the city of Worcester here in the UK the three year old's face and arm was burned when he was squirted with substance BBC's, Phil Mackey has been following the case and this following it failed. Just as the background to this case will this incident happened on July the twenty first last year in the city of Worcester. Which is in central England region called the West Midlands is a historic very pretty city and the little boy with his. Mother his brother and his sister were art on a shopping trip in the city centre on a Saturday afternoon when the little boy as you say were sprayed with sulfuric acid now the trial of the seven people, including the boy's father is because prosecutors claim that the dad in this case how plotted with the others to attack the young child. They say his motivation was that he was in a bitter custody dispute with his wife elect him and taken the children with her. And he felt that if the child was injured in her care it would reflect badly on her in the upcoming custody dispute. So the seven defendants include the man himself is originally from Afghanistan and now lives in the West Midlands as well. As to his friends who are also Afghan nationals and four other people who were Czech in Slovak nationals who it's alleged were hired to be part of the plot by the three Afghans and the courts been hearing the details about the attack. Yes yesterday. We. We were shown CCTV footage of the attack itself which happened in a short. Call home bargains in the center of Worcester on July the twenty first last year, and it's all over in the blink of an eye. Really? You can see the family walking along a central aisle, the mother and the daughter were halfway up the aisle looking for a birthday present for one of the daughters friends about ten meters away, the the the young boy who's three and his older brother were trying to get it some plastic footballs, which were being held inside a cage, then another man walks past them, very briefly, you can see him extend his left arm. He's obviously holding something in his hand. And then he walks out of shorts. The three year old boy is clearly in some distress. He runs to his mother and his comforted by her. We were told that she was so distressed that star had to help doll the emergency services. But that thanks to the prompt action of members of staff in the short who use wet towel towels to clean, the wound. And paramedics and doctors later that the boy has made a good recovery. And the boy's mother has been giving evidence Phil what has she been saying? Yes, she's been giving evidence via video link. So she's not in court, but she began giving evidence yesterday will continue later on today. She's been talking initially about the broken relationship with her husband. She told the court that they were both Afghans originally they had married in an arranged marriage marriage in Pakistan in two thousand and six and then moved to the UK, but that the relationship had broken down. She claims that her husband had been abusive to her. She told the court that after she left him on a couple of occasions. Previously to go to a women's refuge. He has spoken to her about killing her. He said that he'd asked an imam whether in Islam would be okay to kill her and the children because they let her the imam thankfully said. No. But he said that he was left, and this is what she said he told him he was left with a choice kill her and the children in this country and say the punishment all leave to another country in which he said, it might be multiple to carry out that crime now the seven defendants, including the father all deny the plot. The trial itself is expected to last six or seven weeks the BBC's Phil Mckee. Thank you very much. Now's the headlines on this next.

"Oh, that what's going on? I just met the guy. Maybe maybe you guys know Phil, Maggie really. Well, I'd never heard of it. I'm sorry. I had to remember his name. I had look it back up on the board. He's continuing you guys apart, Phil Mackey fan club, but he's talking about how you know the Jimmy Butler thing fell apart and all this and the options. Anyway, you were talking about like the options of where Jimmy Butler wants to go and buy, supposedly, maybe more interested in the clippers in the Lakers. Jimmy Butler didn't put the Lakers on his listen more of these people are coming out, and I've kinda wondered if the Lakers in some way in terms of building the super team in getting two or three more guys to come, whatever one or two more guys, whatever may almost did too well in the off season by getting LeBron because LeBron is too good. And so if you're Colli Leonard and you're a top five guy in the NBA and you're, you're a finals MVP go, do I wanna come to join LeBron's team? And it doesn't matter what they pitch. It's going to be LeBron's team every team LeBron plays on his team, Jimmy Butler. Does he want to do like. Does everybody wants to come an automatically be second fiddle where if you goes to Brooklyn and joins with kyri, although that I'm just looking like it's gonna be off the table. Kyrie Irving was on the jump with Rachel Nichols and said that they've got a pretty good thing over there. And he does his true Dun picture himself leaving. But you didn't Tango, you never know. Boston's gonna want to give them the money, look injuries, whatever it might be like that guy like Jimmy Butler or Paul, George, or some of these other guys can kind of convince themselves that they're on equal footing with somebody like kyri with somebody like an can't do that here. And so if you are someone like Kevin Durant, can't leave Golden State where he was criticized for hiding behind the greatest team in the NBA and then come here where he'll be criticized for hiding behind the best player in the NBA like stuff like that. If you care about those things, I'm gonna like Durant. It does. Well, lot of players do. That's what makes his comp. I mean, a lot of players get caught up in credit and the credit game. It's one of the reasons why you know Klay Thompson, for example, strikes everybody as a great potential free agent at bring in for LeBron not just because we love clay, we love Michael, that sort of thing, and not just the skillset. He does not give a damn, but any of that stuff. No play does not care about the credit. And he's also like he's perfect come here because he's already slotted in that thing. He's already been this in the second third guy, whatever. And if he stays in Golden State is gonna be the second. Third, fourth guy there. He's never going to be the a in any probably any system regardless of where he goes, I it would be kind of amazing to me if after all of this where they couldn't attract anybody here and they kept trying and thankfully got lucky. And everybody kept saying, no, there's certain irony to Lakers not being able to attract the next free agent because the first one that they attract us to. We, it's complicated me playing with Kobe, for example, and it's not a total apples to apples comparison. Because during Kobe's prime minister had cap space, you know the narrative that free. You never really got to test that because the Lakers were never in a position to actually bring in free agents. But Kobe has said before, you know, playing with me is not for everybody, and it's a little bit of different reasons than for LeBron but playing with LeBron is complicated and it's not going to be for everybody. And we've seen kyri Irving wanted out. Paul, George didn't even want to give it a shot. It's not going to be for everybody playing with LeBron and everything that comes with being a teammate of LeBron James. And I think the Paul George thing too. It's like in his head, he could kind of look at and be like, well, wait a second. It's going to be LeBron LeBron's already there and George must have known it well in advance.

"Terence Newman was sort of forced into retirement and now he's on the Vikings assistant coaching staff this year. But they had so many communication breakdowns in the secondary. If you look at how tight ends of performed against the Vikings, there's been some ugly, big time plays with tight ends and running backs out of the backfield because they just don't between. I'm gonna go really meat and potatoes. Football on you here between linebackers and nickel cornerback. There have been some major. Communication gas that just didn't happen with parents. Newman was on the field. It was like having an assistant coach on the field. So I just don't think it's possible to stick the flag in the ground of number one defense in the NFL anymore with those two pieces missing. So the Rams already have the best offense in the league right now. And they're gonna say something far removed from the best defense in the NFL tomorrow night. The flip side of that though, we're talking with Phil Mackey ESPN twin cities is that the Vikings won't be facing. The best version of the Rams defense definitely going to be without cornerback. Keep to Leib could be without Marcus Peters. The other families to limited Mark limited the other ball hawking corner that they have. How do you expect the Vikings to react to that potential thing. The the problem is the Vikings are gonna listen to a negative. I am right now the Vikings we're gonna have to their their offense. Headline is so ravaged. I don't know if you can pick apart the ram secondary if you don't have time to throw. I mean, Kirk, even when Kirk cousins wasn't getting destroyed by bills pass rushers. He was Aaron on throws because it was obvious. He was waiting for somebody to knock his head off his shoulder pads. So I, I do think if the Vikings can get some quick hitting offense to Delvin cook, assuming he plays and their two star wide receiver Stefan digs. And Adam seal who really are legitimately two of the top ten or twelve wide receivers in the NFL they can run any route yards after the catch. They're very quick tough to tackle. I think that's the plan. If you, if you can't get quick hitting stuff to those three players, it's going to be really, really hard on the road short week, no offense of line. It's gonna be really hard to come away. With enough points to win the. I mean, you're, you're gonna have to score at least I would think twenty one or twenty four points to even be in the conversation. That's my guess. And it sounds to me in Phil, if if I understand you correctly that hypothetically, if you had the ability to start both digs and Alvin cook in your fantasy league that you probably wouldn't. Hypothetically, I, I would I if it's PT are starting all of those guys all the time. If you go Phelan's another one, if you go look, if you're gonna PR league feeling in a completely completely garbage game by the Vikings. Offense caught like fifteen passes for one hundred yards or something like that just with underneath stuff. So I'd start them on. I would start them all even if it's a blowout talking with Phil Mackey, ESPN twin cities, Donald show candidates. He brothers and a he. Brian came in at ski seems that the Minnesota Timberwolves will not be starting Jimmy Butler anytime soon. How professional sag there there wasn't. You can learn from how Andy doesn't don't don't care how good you are. You can always learn a tip or to how we operate it right there. Things get.

"The guys they brought in right guys, you can basically say the same things about the Rams in the sort of Sean McVay era. They've gotten it right, and it's been really short, and there's not a ton of evidence on the table, but there's nothing to indicate that when they do something like give Brandin cooks a really big contract before he actually plays a game with your team, that it was the wrong thing to do. Some degree though, I think they were. They were looking to give cooks that money pretty quickly a, he's good, but be they had burned a draft pick on it. Sure. And they had had that happen with Sammy Watkins as well, and you end up losing it when he's out and plays. Well, he controls that you're always better and they did the same thing with girly. You pay somebody a little bit earlier than you have to. Maybe you get, you know, you have a number of the top of your range or whatever it is you have a number of what you something that's ideal. You're much more likely to be able to get somewhere in the middle that you're comfortable with, which is less than your max if you give it to him early. Yeah, I totally agree. But I mean, the picks that they gave up for keep to leave for Marcus Peters for for all these guys that they brought in. They can only do that because Jared Goff played so well so quickly because otherwise, all the picks that they gave up to be in the position to trade for golf may need to hang on to be able to drive. It'd be good enough. They need to hang on to all those. But even having said that with a guy like cooks. You move that pick to get him. You still want to have him around three to four seasons, five seasons. You want to make sure that you actually have something to pay off or not having the draft pick. Yeah, but the flip side is the other part of that. Maybe not the flips. The other part of it is the Rams. No. Their window is potentially pretty long like the minute you have to pay Goff. We've seen it with Seattle. It gets harder to win you seen that. But you know the other thing is they saw the division kinda tailing off the look around the NFC. There are a lot of good teams. There's no Golden State Warriors of the of the NFC right now. And so they took a window and maybe shorten it by year or so you're maybe it's, they turned a five-year great five year window into a three and a half or four year window, but they kicked that thing open much larger than it was, which I think is great. They kicked out the window. I mean the windows now shattered, like there is no window right now in terms of what they have in front of points, they're going to run off to buy a new window at some point. But while the window is. Kicked in there is a lot of possibility in front of the Rams. Yeah, no question. We're gonna talk about actually the Rams and this game tomorrow against the Vikings with Phil Mackey ESPN twin cities, and also talk with them a little bit about this. Jimmy Butler situation, the trade demand with timber wolves, and where he might end up Sadan show came in brothers, ESPN, LA down a show candidates, keep brothers in for George into kimchi, Brian Kamm Manetzky and the Rams have a huge game Thursday night tomorrow at the Coliseum taken on the Minnesota Vikings and break that down and also talk a little bit about what's going on with Jimmy Butler and the mess that is the Minnesota Timberwolves.

It is the dumbest thing in the world, but at least it should be a good game if you're no won't be, it should be. You just described the problem Mandy. It should be a good game actually going to ruin it. Actually, this year it's all relative, but this year Thursday night football has been some of the better Thursday night football. We've seen a while that's actually been some games on Thursday. See this is where the NFL could really luck out because they're better off scheduling games like Cleveland jets that everyone expects will be the single worst football game of all time. Because all you can do is do better. You know, it's like when the Rams and Niners played last year on Thursday, every thought that was gonna be terrible game. It turned out to be a great one really exciting. It was like the best Thursday night football game in years. But generally speaking, I think when you take marquee teams and you give them a short week, you're setting yourself up to screw up what ought to be a great thing about an hour.

"The heart of Dylan's point is look not doing it. They're going for it this year. Anything he does in terms of fracturing, the locker room or sitting out are holding out jeopardizes the Super Bowl run. All you go first. What do you think nonsense? No, the only thing that jeopardize the Super Bowl run is if he doesn't play for the Rams this year and he's not going to sit out the whole season. So to me, this is John. This is such a simple issue now we're going to keep talking about it. I'm sure we've been talking about for several years. The Rams as I understand it have made a very substantial offer to make him the highest paid defensive player in the league. I don't know how that fractures the locker room. I don't know if they made him some low ball offer that might fractured locker. What are they doing? They try to screw this guy over there. Not they made him an excellent offer. He just and maybe and I don't even blame him or his agents for this. They want to get more money. Okay, that's fine. But guess what? We're not going over this threshold, highest paid offensive player in the league. You got it. We love you. We said a negative thing about you. We've kept all doors open. We will give you any money back that you would have accrued in fine losses. I'm sure right they've, they've protected themselves and that standpoint. But if you're not gonna play ball with that. Okay, fun. Then just come in when you want and we will eventually franchise tag you. We get, we get the next three years of your prime and that he's twenty seven, right? So you can franchise all the way through. If you don't want to sign the contract fund, but you're not going anywhere. We're definitely not trading you somewhere to have you tear up the league elsewhere in us get stuff back. It isn't as good. So that to me is the very simple position, the Rams to play this. Right? And they will continue to. Your right in Dylan's wrong and Dylan's columnists. So it's his job to stir the pot. So I'm not even sure he feels strongly about this, but if he does, it's a staggering overreaction on his part. I've said this for the past couple of weeks. We had Lindsay theory who covers the Rams for ESPN for us on the show earlier in the week, and I said it to Lindsay. I don't think there's any incentive for Aaron Donald to come into camp, and I don't think the Rams care that he's not here. No, it's fine. I think. Okay. So what Aaron Donald is gonna work out every day. Did it last year? He he missed the first game last year, and he came in the second game and had a monster season. I don't as Rams fan. I don't not even sure I would want Aaron Donald to come into camp where he could only get hurt in a preseason game. There is no hurry here and to suggest that trading him would be in any way. Smart is not keeping an eye on the big picture. There is no player, none in all the football that you could trade Aaron, Donald four, and get equal value. He's that good plus you don't need anything. Your team is set up as if Donald is your nose tackle playing next dominating, sue. The NFL is not the NBA. The Spurs. The thing with coli that would have been an actual problem because not only he would have had. He could have left on his own as an unrestricted free agent the following year after the season, he could have ruined the chemistry and everything for the team. This season, he could have refused to show up like that. That is a situation in the NBA because the way the contracts are filtered that you have to listen if a player that strongly wants to believe. It's like what? What our friend Phil Mackey was telling us about Jimmy Butler. If things go sour Minnesota in Jimmy Butler sorts make the notion that he does not use not going to stay with the wolves after next year. And by the way he didn't sign a contract extension, right? That's different. The Rams again, have Donald locked in with thanks to the franchise tag, which may or may not be fair to players. Okay. That's a whole different discussion, but they are in control of that..

But if it were Phil Mackey in the front office and he got a hold of Tom does office and desk and he called rob Pelinka and right now and said Jimmy Butler. He's on the block rented and coup. Who's my interested in Ingram? How does that conversation end up? I don't think they hang up the phone. Phil, I think they would listen, but I think a lot would depend on whether or not they felt they could sign Butler long term. I think if Butler is definitely going to free agency at the end of this year, they're so high on Kouzmin Ingram, and those guys are on cost controlled, rookie contracts that I think they would hesitate, Mike. What are you not only that look. We just went through this whole thing with why. If you think somebody's coming in, it's going to be one of these guys for free next year. Don't give up. Yeah, so that's that's the position. Maybe the Lakers are in fill that I'm not sure every team is in where they think somebody's gonna come without having to go with the guy so that that's the trick there. If you're the wolves and there's even a fifty percent chance, Jimmy Butler leaves in this Western Conference is so loaded. Take a step back and go get some young assets and wait and wait until the warriors go away. But I don't think they're going to. They're going to run head on into into like an eight or nine seat. Of battle at the end of the year, like they were last year unfortunately, fill, I'll be, I'll be Texan. You when does his next seventeen home runs in for the rest of the month in Greg bubbly comes on board with the mood, but we appreciate your time buddy. Thank you. Phil, that's feel macking, Minnesota. We coming up. We're gonna talk about the Rams. Dylan Hernandez, who was a columnist for the Los Angeles Times has written a column. Simply sing this. If Aaron Donald does not come into camp in the next week. Dump him trade him. Don't risk your Super Bowl season. Is that a good move or a terrible move? We'll get into it next ESPN LA. But Mason in Ireland, Mike Dell's in for Mace, got fasttrack coming at the top of the hour. Want to talk about the Rams. Mike, the Rams, and they've made a secret of this are going for it this year. They went out and got into Dhamma consume. They went out and got Marcus Peters. They went out and got to keep to leave. They went out and got Brandin cooks. They signed Todd Gurley to a long term deal. But their best player the best player in the team. Aaron, Donald is holding out. He held out last year. Chances are if they don't reach a long term deal, he'll hold out next year. That's just kind of the way it happens. But Dylan Hernandez rightfully times has written a column that says. I'll just read you guys part of it. It says the question isn't whether Donald deserves to be paid like a high end quarterback. He won't be can't be the NFL has salary cap. The Rams would be unwise to have more than twenty five million invested in a defensive tackle regardless of how dominant he is. The real question is whether Donald will exercise the only leverage at his disposal, extend his hold out into the regular season and compromise everything the Rams of build over the last year. And if he does dump him more specifically trade him..

"So last night dodgers brewers at Dodger Stadium dodgers fell behind early Brian dosier. The new second baseman brought him back. Fourth time, spotty granddaughters home at against chase Anderson now it's dove. Two. After the game. Dosier said this, I love the three ninety five center. That's that's used to that, but it was cool and came the moment the obviously time game than. Yazd book, which is just think everything just kind of transpired. Pretty funny. It was a fun game. You know, especially the current call and all that was that was pretty cool. A lot of different emotions all around with all that being said, come out. Dave Roberts dodger manager on dosier debut Bryan, obviously had a tremendous game made a play. Coming in and did some great things tonight in the baddest box, the Homer, the double got a single in there. So he was on base all night long. And I think for for him there was that air those kind of a weird one in the first inning. All right. So Mason Ireland, John along with Mike Trudell who is a native Minnesotan. Right. And and so you reached out into your role, the deck so we can get more info on goes your. Yes. So I was the second. The trade went down started texting. Some of my Minnesota buddies and my Minnesota buddy that knows more than most about the twins is Phil Mackey. He's the host of Mackey and Judd show on ESPN fifteen hundred Imia polis supposed to touch twins podcast, Philly. You have watched a lot of dosier over the just tell John people what you texted me back. When I when I asked you what does was going to do for dodgers here? First of all, thanks for having me on you guys. And by the way, what what? A summer for Los Angeles sports, how much fun is it to sit there and do what you guys are doing right now? LeBron James, Manny? Machado Brian dozer is like is like a. Site dish. We get, we get everybody filled. They're all coming. We get the best best looking girl from every high school and now all the best athletes, it's lots onto. We're very, very excited to land. Anthony tolerate here. Minnesota. We were doing. The dodgers you should be. That was the main target for the clippers. Apparently they took the plane to try to get Oliver and he's like, mom, I want to go play for Tibbs fill before before you answer my question about what you Texan them. I went Greg Bergman. Our producer is the biggest dodger fan here. He watches every game. He does like nineteen Facebook, Snapchat, periscope. Listening, social media. Greg detail. Phil, tell Phil why you did not necessarily get excited about the dosier trade you weren't. I was not excited because this year I know in the past and he's a good second half for a lot of his years. But this year he is not looked good. His numbers were really far down. He has batting average, really low is on base percentage is lower than it usually is. He just doesn't have the power that he had earlier in the in the last couple of years. I think that him coming in was going to take away time from guys like Chris Taylor and max Muncie. They were going to be playing second base, and it reminded me very much of Curtis Granderson coming into the dodgers lash case, oh, where they forced at bats upon Granderson when he was struggling and going to do that with dosier. And of course this is usually the case with you. You were proven dead wrong last night. They do who either way for home runs happily happily wrong. However, Curtis Granderson hit two hundred thousand first dodgers transplant quit filibuster. Good. Fill react to all of that. That did for dodger fans like Greg. This was kinda. But you according to Mike, like dosier coming to LA, why so? Okay. So Greg just expressed every frustration twins fans have had with dosier off and on for like six years, but but this is what I'll say about him and why and why don't disagree. But there's a, there's a ton of reason to be optimistic. It's not. It's not like the dodgers gave up top top of the line prospects. They got to unload the Logan foresights money to, you know, to to save from luxury.
