We Got Reggie theus former NBA All star now our Sirius Xm NBA analyst coming up at the bottom of the hour to talk all things NBA and Reggie People Sleep on Reggie Rob I'm not going to. Overstate that he was just washed play rentable player but he was a he was a really good player. He was he was he. Chicago he want to come into the nets I don't directly might have been one other team Chris any play with the nets, and that's what I got to know Reggie and great guy to just going to be around smart guy. He never relieve the on. That's why you know people. kind of, but his numbers were always good. And speaking of the numbers and I think he dated Michael Jordan's wife before my new. Speaking a numbers. Why you're trying to get in all the You think you know. Moving on, I had a great segue to. My segue was speaking of numbers have you seen Donovan Mitchell and Jamal Murray lately? They and not just them rob. Damian LILLARD IN PORTLAND TJ warned in Indiana at home at home. Well, all at home and not not Murray and Donovan one of them will be at home in short. Seven tomorrow. But they we could go on and on and even guys that aren't playing this year Kyrie Irving. steph curry numbers, Galore, and a lot of people particularly millennials think this is the golden age of guards and it is because of the the way the game is but I wanna say this I just want to kind of. Give what I think are the reasons that these younger guys are putting up these tr incredible numbers I mean Jamal Murray forty seven points sixty three percent shooting overall sixty four percent shooting from trae are in this game stretch. But I'M GONNA, get the players, their props first, and foremost the handles the ball handling. And the shooting of these guards today. Is Unbelievable. Now they do. Let you carry. K. If you go back and you look at old, Phil Jerry West Oscar Robertson, you gotta look at them like they couldn't really dribble but that's because back then we were taught, you were supposed to have your ball your hand on top of the ball. Dribble or it was Paul me you can get on the side a little here and there that's what I call it right right home now they let you you all up under the ball. You know what I mean. You hold me for a millisecond and then you cross it over. So they allow you to get away with things that they didn't back in the day, but the handles are spectacular. And then the shooting range is just sick I mean, there's no ifs. Do Shooting from thirty, thirty, five feet with ease and so I'll give them their props but rob I think look there's several factors number one. The. No there are very few. Big Men that play inside that score a lot. The only one really is Joel beating even he floats out to the perimeter lot. So only president penniless taken up. When he when he way what? He said you know you were saying he floats to the outside said because the paint. is taken up so he does outside. Yeah we've been, but even does it sometimes we're not there which is ridiculous but but yeah so you don't have that big men. You're throwing the ball to give you twenty twenty something points a game. So you get to keep the ball a lot more the offenses, high pick and roll. In kicks. So these great point guards are handling the ball a lot more than their predecessors did who came down Badge Johnson throw it into the post to to Kareem Isaiah come throw the ball to the wing or something cut through things like that although Isaiah restaurant picking role they wanted I back in that era but that's one of the defense rob not checking by mentioned you don't get hammered when you go into the lane so there's that and the. Let, let let let's not poo poo that 'cause you're able to somewhat Chris. Direct people move them. Yeah. That makes a big difference and defensively that I can't even touch you if I touch you, it's a file I. think the offensive player has a big advantage. Well, think about Luca Donncha. WHO IS NOBODY'S speedster as great as he is. Co why Leonard One of the great defenders now I'll give it that co is probably not or not defensively what he was three years ago. But. He three four years ago. Because he's doing more offensively he's also a little bit older but still he still one of our better defenders, he couldn't say in front of Luca beat. Now granted if he can hand check me could that there was a hand check it would make a big difference. I think it would there'd be huge and then the floor spread out now you got you watch the game the majority of the time there is nobody in the paint there's five guys on the perimeter and it's easier to get by your man because again, he can't hand check. You you can't. He's trying to run you off the three point line because he'd rather take a two a three, and then when you get to the lane, there may be one guy in air to contest as so that is easier as well, and so I think there are clear reasons rob and I'm giving the players props but there are other clear reasons rule changes style of play now. One, guy dominating the ball whereas back in the day you played five-man basketball for the most part. And that's why some of these guys are putting up these other worldly numbers. I agree and I think. The game is adjusted for them. And they don't feel the same defensive pressure that maybe other guards used to feel and in the absence of the big man I just think all those factors have given them basically Chris. The green light yet, right right and then remember half a lot of these half of their shots they were taking threes. So half of your shots are worth three points versus to. which never happened back in the day. So there's that too, but let's go. Let's transition of football rob and of course, the big news today. Lynyrd for net was cut. And you know he had his injury problems two years ago you only played half the season. He certainly hadn't been a saint. He's had. You know he's been suspended at running like right management. No doubt. But the bottom line on a team that was horrible. Last year he was productive. Where for almost twelve hundred yards over four yards pop caught the ball at I'm back. Down there was that guy the Jacksonville who is now who's your got? My Guy. He's at men's shoe no from Philly. Falwell Fo- yeah can send the guy who said if he got his chance no order don't. Shy. says. He took your boys team. And did it better about that? But when? I said to you every time they give them the keys to the car crashes. No and I. Agree he he's one of those guys that win the pressures on when it's. Older I. He's not a better quarterback Carson Wentz. But. He's done what Carson Wentz by the way. I don't even have to finish it. Everybody knows he's done with Carson Wentz didn't do one super bowl with his own team. But by the way, this could have been a topic today what? Would, send a lifetime. Right you know what I say Winson a lifetime. He's healthy. He's already banged up they not even doing anything what it means when. Shirts in Philadelphia aren't eight tackling their quarterback like. Other, teams aren't judge says that Dick Tackling quarterback. With the. is making his he's making men out of his players I, tell you that but come on your boys hurt. He'll be I he'll be I I. Hope So. Wentz in a lifetime. We were GONNA. Be Healthy car. GonNa be healthy Milwaukee's down by six with three minute. Ohio. I. Know I pick them in seven. But this is where look tough series man and they've done a good job. It'll be put Islam looked over the help. them out game like everybody counted them out when they picked him in. This Series I was close to picking Milwaukee rap. Is Very Close Milwaukee but let's let's go back to the net. I'm sorry about. The worst thing about this is obviously you cutting me got nothing to show for him. They could draft rob that you remembered as the year they had. They had A. Really good team i. mean he got him what he was there when they got to AFC championship. But they had a great defense or that year. And can you imagine if they instead of drafting winner for net if they drafted to Shawn Watson Or Patrick Mahomes and I'll give them. I won't even crush them from a home because nobody knew that this was coming. Okay. But they knew Watson was great. We knew Watson was great and they were late to the party. They still took a running back over a star quarterback star running back over star quarterback. And it's come back to haunt rob because. Sean with that defense. Maybe you're Jacksonville pick would've been right at that point. Because you love Jacksonville I did I thought that they were pretty impressive and had something going. You. Let it rest either they know one in three. Two and seven England. Power. But their defense was was it and Chris. You know you can look back that team was right there and I might be a little off rob with the numbers. But. They were in. New. England up by ten in the fourth quarter with about ten minutes nine minutes to go and the defense is the one that let them down. It wasn't a quarterback. Don't get me wrong maybe if they could have got another first down or something, they could have run the actually defending Blake. Bortles I I am defending that that team was set up and we've seen we're Brad Johnson and Trent dilfer wing would win championships. Are you talking all day Rondo with. His through the defense, gave it up at the end of the game they needed to get stops they couldn't get a stop maybe your office could have held the ball. I give you that the defense fell apart which was shocking, right? Because it was the defense. Well, it was like twenty to ten in the fourth quarter. I think was the score will how would score twenty points in New England were leading and the defense could not stop the Patriots. However you going all the way back to Trent, dilfer and Brad Johnson. Moscow bowl. Here's the last Super Bowl Windows quarterbacks Patrick mahomes Tom Brady, a nick foles who was playing out of his mind paint. Now give you Peyton Peyton manning won it and he was horrible I'll give you that because you can win but it's rare especially nowadays. Because you know. A rough had brody and Brady was terrible and that Super Bowl let's not forget. He had no touchdowns a terrible fumble. He was terrible. It was we started out with he was not terrible. touchdowns of pick of fumble. Terrible that Game Tom Brady you can't say that you. Can Win without a good quarterback. So maybe I should take away the Peyton manning from you to now playing with bad at that point. But how and way both were was bad at that point in that whole season Tom just had not a great game, but he wasn't a bad quarterback obviously. Buckingham say. I'm saying I. I will agree if you put a defense but come on you still why when you get a great quarterback? No, I get it. But I'm just saying that team and I get it. I mean they they missed a golden opportunity. They were good enough Chris with that defense to win, and if they were able to somehow stop that they would've they would've won a championship or had a good chance Gosh Stop Serious Jackson. Guys. Look. Let me read between the lines. I know. Rob. Parker well known for almost thirty years. This is Rob Parker defending the first year on the couple win week after week after week, he picked the week Jacksonville Jaguars to win. He kept them in his top five power rankings. So long the rankings lost complete credibility. This is all that in this is revisionist history folks. I'm just letting you know. All right. Those what happened? This is the question for you guys eight, seven, seven, ninety, nine on Fox eight, seven, seven, nine, nine, six, sixty, three, sixty, nine does what happened to the Jaguars when they drafted four net. Back over this Shyla. Watson. Proved that you need a franchise quarterback in today's NFL to win a super bowl, we will continue the conversation with you.

Are the Jacksonville Jaguars? Proof that you need a franchise quarterback to win today. Remember they had the great defense really good running back and winner for net came up short without a franchise quarterback or like rob do you say that if you got the defense and other things around him, you can have a mediocre quarterback and win in today's NFL. GimMe ancient history like. Defense I'm telling you is fed. To the cost. Writer in Vegas, you're on the couple of Fox sports radio. What's up writer? A ouseley going fellas. Pretty Short I'm Kinda honestly I kind of agree with both of you guys you do need a franchise like an awesome quarterback however, it's not impossible clearly. you know to win without one, but I would say you can't just have a mediocre. You need at least in the fishing quarterback who's not really gonNA hurt you turnovers so you're GONNA be. He's not. I agree with that. But if you remember, do you remember the Jacksonville Patriots Afc Championship game do you remember that game at all or no? HAIRDO. Leading. Up Twenty Two ted. Defense could could've played who has finished that game out they should have won that game one round. I got. One more question to 'cause you're saying today but the Baltimore Ravens they want with Joe Flacco I don't think you will. Wonderful postseason FLACCO had eleven was out not playing Nick foles he was unbelievable night out of all. Go look at his number debt debt playoffs they were historically they were so good. Go look at those numbers that crazy rob in North Carolina you're in the couple of Fox sports radio what's up rob. Doing. Man. Thank. You absolutely got to have a quarterback now. You see what Green Bay do right? And they got Iran so I mean. The for there was all world in college. But you can't pass up. You know you quarterback position you gotta take care of that I. There's mandatory. There it is. Right Nah. I main most most people would say that and at least. Been Every Blue Moon you know might. Joe You wonder today's NFL different syllabus. If you can't stop anybody, you could have a great quarterback. You might not win Joseph in Virginia, you're on the couple of Fox sports radio what's up Joseph? Evening Chris I'm sorry I don't do this normally but rob is right in this situation just from the standpoint of it is a defensive thing when you look at the playoffs and you look at what happened previously. especially with the titans. Derrick Henry, carry them, and if I'm not mistaken San Francisco didn't Garoppolo throw for like twenty three yards in the NFC championship. You. Don't have to rely on the quarterback's arm as much as you used to. Anymore you could do short dynamic thin. And if you WANNA. Football Noise, you brought up losses. Did. Did Jimmy Garoppolo. Win The super bowl. No. Putting the NFC championship game. Super boss Joseph. This question. What is rob? Parker's favorite saying. You, can't. Its. Losses. Because you didn't know he. Used as saying when he's talking about Aaron Rodgers but that's his favorite saying. quarterback talent doesn't matter as much as the organization matters. Right? It's Aaron Rodgers. We all know he should have more than just one championship, but the one. In FC Championship Game Yeah because their defense is giving up thank you. They've given a forty four point five times five times in a playoff hor. How many games you go to win given up forty points zeroyd is sixty seventy I humbly, NFC championship Andre in Massachusetts you on the couple of Fox sports radio what's up. How. You doing thanks for taking my call rob gotta go you on this one because defense and the running game. My feeling is can get the job done for me is listening had Jacksonville not lost Nick foles first game of the season. This humor had a chance to really play out. Yeah Short Nick. Said Nick. What? Nick. foles. Nick foles spoke to come in and be the game manager step above Blake. Borders allow that defense to do with it. Staying have the run game and that was their plan. You don't need again to your point. There's all out off point back to a more recent example. Let's remember Tennessee kite up ten nothing on. This year after. Ask You the same question I'll. Chris. Short menu. Andrei. GimMe Tennessee they should have won that game or Nobody's the question. Was it can you go deep into the playoffs the? Can you be a threat can you WIN A playoff game? It was? Can you win a super now? Look I'm going to be fair. It has been proven in the past. They would a strong defense, a running game. You can have a gay manager no doubt about it. But. Let's see I'm I look forward to seeing win the next time that happens Because it's it's a throwing league. Now that's for darn sure. Are we got the Great Reggie theus coming up next but first be sure to catch live editions of the odd couple with Chris Broussard then Rob Parker Weekdays at seven PM Eastern Four PM Pacific on Fox sports radio and the iheartradio APP former NBA All star also former NBA coach and division one college coaches well, Sirius Xm NBA radio analyst Reggie theus Reggie welcome to the Thanks man I appreciate it how you guys doing do your man is is always great to have you on and let's get right to it. We just saw the Milwaukee Bucks lose. One fifteen to one, zero, four to the Miami Heat are the bucks in trouble here. You know. The the Miami he's been waiting for a while I think that it's. You know they. They've got their issues but. I don't know if they have enough. Anyone. That can contain you honest. And the NBA star Driven League NBA is about. You know guys that can close now don't get me wrong Miami's got close to but. You know night in and night out Jaanus is is is you gotta you'll get out always put your money on your honest young when it comes to that. People always jumped when they lost game one New Orleans for everybody who's like, oh, the walk and not good. You know people just overreact. Berkeley basically say Portland. Come. Klis beat the Lakers in game one and Charles would crazy. You remember the broom and the studio? You. Know the the Lakers obviously they show some deficiencies I get it. But listen when it's all said and done you still gotTa Stop Lebron and AD. Okay the other guys are not going to go the whole series and not make shot. So you know Danny. Green. I've has not made enough shots from me. He that that's why they brought him here. Obviously he's a good player. He does a lot of other things, but I need you to make some shots man take the pressure off those guys. Hey Reggie. Let me follow up on the other. Guy Kawai. Leonard who played great. If you look at his numbers, how do you how do you like Hawaii? Leonard and what he brings to the table Muniz guy is trying to win back to back championships with two franchises that had never won before. He got there. Do you like his chances well, I mean listen for me. From top to bottom, the clippers are the best team. From top to bottom. You know they have four guys. That can literally take over the game in the fourth quarter. So and they got guys that close in the fourth quarter. So you know that to me is is is always the issue with the NBA is in the fourth quarter, who are you throwing the ball to who has the ball in their hands who can take over and make some big shots? Obviously, why can you know they got three other guys that can do that you know and you have to think about those are the ones and to for me the X. Factors Lou Williams. I mean, you know. Lou Can score anyway in the book anything you've ever read any way you've ever read it Lou Williams can put it in the whole. Reggie. Speaking of scorn. You were a score back in your day. When you look at these young guys, these guards mainly Jamal Murray Damian Lillard Donovan Mitchell put up huge numbers, and they shoot it tremendously I don't want to take anything away from him because I think the ball handling and the shooting range today is off the charts and obviously superior what it's ever been in the League but I think a lot of these numbers are also big time related to style of play three point shooting tons of three pointers can't defend with the handchecking nobody in the paint anymore and things like that. What's your take on on these astronomical numbers we're seeing nowadays But I mean listen this case in point. A triple double used to be a big deal, right? Is Not. No big deal anymore. I. Mean. The guards have the ball in their hands? You know eighty percent of the time. The offense is that the NBA run today is. Dribble. We've into a pick and roll in basically the guards keep the ball in the has. And the shot clock running down they dribble dribble drivel either they shooter find somebody across the other side of the court shoe three. So and on top of that, you really can't touch anybody. So I don't I try I try my best even though I hate quite a bit. And I and I admitted leaks. Like I admit that I hate because. You know. I don't think that there's anybody that can guard anyone. At anytime if you can't put your hands on. One Hundred Percent Reggie I'm with you it's nearly impossible and we joke about it all the time when it really flip was when dwayne Wade shot a million free throws in the play in the championship you remember that. Yeah Oh. Yeah. Well, you know one of the things I did best as a player is I may guys follow me but those were contact files not touch files. You know how to make. the bearded one is the best at you know. Creating files, you know offense is supposed to go to the contact not wait on the contact to come to him. So, if you're creating the contact, but there's really it's not supposed to be any contact then you're always gonna live at the line. So you know I think that it's it's skewed You know I was talking to a guy went over to the Delhi today, get a sandwich and there was a cat in line and I have my mask on. I'm thinking he's wasn't gonNA start talking about basketball but said, hey man, how's your jumper? So of course I had had to let him know my job is still was falling. I don't know about changing end, but the jumper fall. But I was telling I was telling him that you know it's so interesting. You know when you talk about offense and you talk about the way, the game is. The NBA is preteen the money and the TV ratings are as high as they've ever been. So, they don't really the game has been fixed for television. And it's it's it's pleasing to you know the masses whereas in the back of the day you know listen call it. What it is is didn't nobody WANNA see a bunch of brothers out there fighting. You know and and it's different. It's different right? You know you go to a hockey game, you can't wait to see a fight. But. In basketball that wasn't. So they fix the game they took a lot of the physicality out of the game that took a lot of contact out of the game and and they made it pleasing to everybody's eyes. So they're they're thriving of that so and there's also. A generation and a half that has no idea what school basketball is all about right. I mean, you know the Late, mid range don't even have a clue. So You know it's it is what it is and the the game is still Great. I don't necessarily like certain parts of it the way the way they do it, but analytics has changed a lot of things. How about when you look at what happened with the boycott and black lives matter and just how influential NBA players have become they know their power. We've seen like even you know Nascar Basil hockey the NFL like people have joined in. This is not like they're standing alone. Other people have seen what these guys are willing to stand for does it make you proud when you see that these guys makes me very proud to have been a part of that and to watch the the the the mindset and the social awareness and for them to grow as people I was you know it's funny because the conversations everybody wants to talk about different things. We have a lot of topics of conversation out there these days by and a lot of it is social. You know the the social issues that we have and. I told him that you know it's. It's so great because back in my day, you did what you were told. And it was a coaches league and if you got outta pocket, they would blackball you out of League So. It's great to see that the that the players have control the League. It's great that the Commissioner has allowed this to to develop and grow, but it's also it's also money. And that's really the bottom line is these guys are making so much money for the league the that they've created a you know a thing for themselves and it's going all across sports now. And the fact that it appears that the NBA Kinda is the trailblazer for a lot of these things. And I you know I just really nice to see the growth of the game and the mindset, and I really admire and applaud players. But I'm also glad that they plane because I thought that that would be a negative if they didn't play the playoff. Yeah. To make a statement Yep I. Agree with Reggie Yeah they made this statement they were they. They were willing to give up whatever money they had to give up and I think that it was that they decided to go back and play but but at the same time, the the Board of Governors you know obviously, they had to make some some some some statements to the players through the commissioner. They must have all got together and say this is what we're GONNA do. This is how we're GONNA do it and we need you guys back on the floor and the guy said okay. So let's let's go to work and that's what they're doing. So I'm happy for. All of us that's Reggie, theus great stuff man we appreciate it I for ninety five dollars anytime. They save. The Major League Baseball, trade deadline has come and gone all got to say is the Cleveland Locker. Room must've really hated my cleverness or. We'll get into that.

The trade really might cleverer. That was the big move. Biggest name goes to the padres from the Indians was six players I believe. Nine trade. Yeah look I'm GonNa say this I'm we will see how about this too crew we did I didn't think he'd get traded. That to me that tells me because I liked Cleveland is selling I mean they're trying to win. It they got a good staff otherwise too but. It tells me that those players were really bothered by what clemenger did and please go. Yeah hanging hours. This is the reason why over days because calls Corales goes one of their starters. This is the guy who I think. They were really really bothered them. He in twenty nineteen, he was diagnosed diagnosed. With leukemia. So he's an at risk, right? Right. And I think that they really and also Tito. Francona Terry Francona also has some medical issues Chris. He's missed. Some of the season right with his own medical issues. And I think that knowing that you have a guy like harassers been through hell right to even fight his way back and he wound up being the. Comeback Player of the year. But Chris. To jeopardize and and you know and even play around with that knowing you have a Guy I think that really rob two players the wrong way and I had a sense. Because they didn't WanNa back. Remember there were very vocal. Yeah. They got moded and they were like we don't know got trust tonight Guy Ryan those guys anymore. So I AM The Indians pitching it held up even when those guys. That made it easier? Don't you think? Yeah. It makes sense that makes sense and and I totally agree because they're not throwing in the towel they think they can win with Al. no right. But I tell you I'm happy. For San, Diego obviously it's been a long time since they were even in the playoffs let alone years factor right and I mean, they are rob I mean we're tattoos. Look Machado.

All right. Let's talk about what's trending right now. Rams New logo trending because the los. Angeles Rams have released a logo. US Basically Yeah Lisa Hat. That has a new logo on it. It is I would say not good right. There's one way to describe it. What were straight traffic supposed to be a wave or something? I don't know it's supposed to be like in L.. A. A. is curving back to be like. Oh! Yeah that they have on the helmets ray, but it like it all happen because it was on, someone posted on Reddit I'm like no, this can't be because this is such fucking garbage and then people were like. Yeah this actually we can confirm this Halloween confirm. Big If true big, if true love it, if true especially in October, but this is yeah, it's it's not. It looks like almost like a half chargers logo. It definitely evokes have been charger right? Yeah I I don't know who the fuck they hire to make the logos right I mean I can see the design logic there like make the La more prominent because we want like city, pride or something like that, whereas in the past you know the logo has just been the ram right so by adding La more prominently. They're like we're. We're setting down roots. We're La's team now. It's just kinda whack the way they did it i. don't know I. Think probably because all of these things end up at like at a point where some dude with no swag is. The has the final word right and they're like I. Don't know about that. Cool logo ran the one where the La looks like the. Yeah? Committee Committee decisions designed by committee. Did you send somebody else with here Dan Dan Dan? Is he the one who's? Hitting the Mike. Trying to go over to. Cut that pause. Plugging my own Mike. Yeah, you brush your own Mike again After being like the people you gotta give the people what they want a game content and that your boy. US Talk Games. Yeah, I, mean I. Mean You know I'll tell you what them? It's their pop and right. Yeah, which was are watch, people die inside. A, great one. Dan, a your explain to us. Why at Reggie is trending? Yeah, we'll happen to Reggie Miller. Poor Reggie Miller, so reggie fees. May the Reggie theus presence of Nintendo US okay replaced by Doug Bowser yes. That's bows. Not a joke. He is apparently now working with game. Stop is on their board, which has got to be the weirdest lateral move to go from a blossoming company that is continuing to innovate space video games. Would Call Nintendo loss Samir. Renaissance switch I would say every time. Nintendo releases a new concept. Changed. The way people play video games. Blossoming Bro. DESCRIBE INTENDO as blossom. Sharply fairplay so Japanese person might. Put some respect. What about Swish though bro? Everyone's ignoring fucking Jackson same way. Guys read one video game. Over the past. Jack. I mean every time they the game. How? In the world of video games while people are worried about a council war between PS, four and xbox and It doesn't matter. Consistently is developing and innovating in creating awesome video gaming experiences, so go from that company to the lamest going out of business company. I've ever heard of with game. Stop. How is that a decision that you think is good for the final dying farts of store at early it's they were like I mean there are barely any stores open left anyway. They closed like six hundred stores last year. I don't know what Hap- I mean potentially what he resurrects it and that's. That's for his ego. Does he do it because he has a revenge fantasy I'm not sure what his motivation is, unless he really. Oh, I can. I can bring this motherfucker back if he believes that he can bring back game. Stop then you know what more power to him. However, he chooses to do that if he turns them all into land centers that combined both video game stores and also places to play video games making them game stops then like maybe. I. Don't know I don't have any information on that. I'm sorry. Hold on anyway. The point being is that I. don't see a world in which he reignites this brand. When so much of how people buy Video Games? For now digital, barely anybody has physical copies anymore, and even if there's I mean, guys go on sale so much now on all of the on my networks, there's no point that's when I realized how far we've come. because there was nothing more satisfying than going to the store on release date, getting my physical disk in my hand, and being like Oh man when I get home, this shit is. Is On for now being like are the night before I pre- by it I. Wake up and Santa has already put it onto my downloaded. It's ready to go. Yeah, there's there's a convenience factor, but I'm still I still like the feeling like now as an adult I couldn't buy a lot of games as a kid. I was to rent them so like if people came over the week. Three game collection you. You got like Raymond to and you're die. Hard trilogy collection on, please. Now I'm like you'll check out this wild ass, self. Yes, I have literally fee Fas, Ninety nine to twenty. On here, but I know. This shit or like all the call of duty games, but yeah going to the does it. There's no place that people play video games publicly. Now right like are like Dave and buster's so arcade Dave and buster's is definitely blossomed in the Space Museum Bosman along. Take that back Dave and buster's so. Cheap. Lawson I'm going to ruin. It's not lean. Steak. How does this awesome blossom on it to your blessing? Fans hung in a say. 'cause you're blossom and I'm joey. Nice My. Forearm Tattoo. Dave, and Buster's has definitely blown up in a space of playing games like like phone games like Fruit Ninja, and all these like right. Hand and make people come back to them and they know exactly. CAVERS COPCO. Guy Who's sitting there with like thirty dollars worth the quarters. Who's like Y'all just take all comers screw it. The closer you get guitar here or there, but on the other side, a lot of things that are popping up more land, centers, land, centers, or places that just have rows and rows and rows of high end desktop pc area network exact, thank you, local area network where players can come and pay for an hour amount of time or become a member of the place and they can. Can just go at their own leisure and places like old times it kind of like when counterstrike was pop in the beginning now used to be like Yo. Let's go to the fucking. Let's go to the land cap or whatever the counter strike, because I'd have a PC. I definitely dam sure to have a game that was worth a damn slow like going into a nice cybercafe. Tuning into the web surfing away. That's me. The thing that brought game. Stop Down Because. It's like why we don't have blockbuster music anymore. Yeah! Yeah, yeah yeah pretty also last time I walked into a game stop. They were selling all this other bullshit. I'm like what the fuck. Hot on like what the fuck is. It became less actual video games and more video game related stuff right right stuff that you can you physically it down I remember what needs to be like all primal guides. Hails. The real the fountain of Knowledge Him Cool, so, Reggie. What's his name Fees May? Which is an Anagram for Mario Luigi so that's wild that he got replaced by thousand and ten zero. Max Van Sido is trending because he passed on Max von Cdo. Side. A. Years Old. And he has been you know the seven seal. I first became familiar with his work. When he was a played, he did a cameo in the bill and Ted's adventure when they have to play death, twister and battleship right, and I remember being like Oh. My mom was like he was in the seventh seal. You should watch that and I. tried watching that on like. This is fucking bullshit. I'm so yeah. I'M A. Mom Ten years old. You think I'm GONNA. Get fucked the meaning of half this Shit Fuck! No yeah, but I remember going to school. Be Like you know. He's actually in the seventh seal, right? That's how she that's how your mind works. When your kid and here's how my mind works as an adult. I just now realized that that was him, and it was a reference to the seven seal. So there's that and the three eyed raven more recently. He was the priest from exorcist. Right. Yeah I don't know y'all got quiet on me. When I. Just WanNa. You're with. Yeah, yeah, okay, whatever you. No Nail Yeah keep going with that. You scream at one I. Almost said he was the cop an extra. Exercise A. Wait so, what do you think, exorcist? Vomiting and that COP has to come in shooter. The power of Christ compels you. More than one hundred that it's wild when people like him and was it Christopher Lee. Who got those like ridiculous careers? Yeah, he's. He's one of them I bet he. He has like some bad ass secret in his past or something. Christopher Lee was like a total like war hero type F. Yeah, I feel like people that age you know who came of age at that time. Right generally have wild stories where the like charged a machine gun nest, bare hands, or something I would believe that Christopher Lee was actually saw remond. Before his like Oh. Yeah that that was actually me. I is to is a Gig with Tokyo. And finally Corona Virus Ohio a one of many krona virus, related things that are trending reason to the Dow Jones but corona virus. Ohio's trending. I noticed something that I was just looking at a map of the United States. Those broken out by state and a number of coronavirus cases, and it was like Kentucky had one. Indiana had a couple I was like Ohio maybe their next. Three cases today so I think it's it goes along with our theory that it's not just our theory, but the the idea that it's just where people testing is the only thing that like if people start testing in a place. That's when you're going to find out their crew out of ours. Yeah I mean. I can't imagine there's a at this point where there isn't at least as parade summer. That's the nature of things when we're not prepared in any way, yeah, so that is what is trending on this fine. Monday afternoon evening We hope you guys have a great.

With Papa Spivey here and ask them about some of his favorite foods now. This is a first for us. Usually worthy one's talking about all the healthy foods and all that but now we're going to add our dad's perspective. Here go ahead. Shoot Dad the first question all right. What is your favorite Non Alcoholic? Drink while I have several of them but I would say number one. It'd have to be coffee full-strength starbucks black coffee black coffee right. Yeah Sugar high-octane Whatever. Can Jack me up and get me out of first gear. Just get that. Coffee was get it. Pop it and let's just get the crowd into what else you got for. Non Alcoholic. You can have one more. We'll let you probably diet coke. Same reason caffeine. Is there caffeine indict? Go Yes when I was in college. I didn't drink coffee it in like coffee so when I would cram for exams where you have to stay up to one or two to get everything in. I used to drink six packs sometimes eight diet cokes with the caffeine just to keep me up to cram. Now why diet coke regular coke or like Dr Pepper or mountain dew the calories. Of course I just want the caffeine not the calories. Exactly eight eighty one times one hundred sixty calories. That's over one thousand calories just to get your coffee replacement you gotTa Start Looking at all right now that we've done non alcoholic drinks dad. Hit us with your favorite alcoholic. Drink are you gonna be beer white red wine? Which what are you GonNa go with triple? Apa please now. There are certain one that you like. There are certain brewery or anything like that. I like them all very true. I like them. Hazy. Or whatever kind they are. I'm pretty sure every single time we go to a brewery you just look and you're like Oh what is that forty six percent. Yeah try that one. What I can't see through it all right. Let's try that. He goes to the alcohol by volume content or they eighty the like a cheap date would go through the prices at a fancy restaurant. Yeah I'll get the fifty dollar steak anything. Of course I will all right dead long day at work. All right. Mom doesn't WanNa Cook. You'RE GONNA stop at fast food on the way home for you and her. Where are you stopping? And what are you getting? Well I'd have to say normally it'd be Chick-fil-a I'll get the chicken club sandwich with fries. awful fries are really there. What's your dip that you get? What your choice. Nothing fancy just a little ones in the package. The honey Whatever they call it honey mustard. You get it up at the counter. You don't need the it's nothing fancy one now. I know you pretty well known you since. Let's see I was born. You're missing a pretty big fast food place mom love. Why AREN'T WE STOPPING AT DEL TACO? All yeah jail now but yeah DEL TACO. I love dill talker. Well there's probably chick-fil-a closer than del Taco. Probably on your way home. Yeah Yeah it's usually a little healthier to lowering Colorado. Yeah those fries it their the Dash Diet Coke your club sandwich with Mayonnaise or whatever it was on. That's okay it's all you said after a long day brain calories all right so it's your birthday you get to pick where you're going for dinner where you going well. I'd probably say 'cause I want to invite a lot of people probably Lucille's is pretty good because everyone likes that stuff thinking order they have fabulous barbecue. Now what is your order? Don't be ribs two kinds of ribs. Now what are your side's Gonna? Because that's my favorite world. Yeah usually baked beans and I forget. I forget all the other ones mashed potatoes. Baked Potato Baked potato. Probably yeah all right all right now. I see. You didn't say macaroni and cheese. Why do you hate macaroni? And Cheese gives the full rundown. Okay because you made the claim a couple years ago that you've never had macaroni and cheese reason. I don't like macaroni and cheese is because when I was a kid we used to go fishing up at big bear lake after they planted all the trout. All you had to do is put a piece of alvidi cheese on a hook and throw it eight feet off the shore. You could catch a fish every time so I've always thought VELVEETA. Cheese is macaroni and cheese in its fish bait and I don't eat fish bait same thing with Sushi Sushi fish bait that that raw stuff you put on a hook and you can't the sand shark with now. So do you put when you're at a Sushi restaurant? Do you ask for Velveeta cheese. Put It on a fishing pole than throw it at the Sushi. No but I always try to get chicken all right well. It's still your birthday all right. We're not going to go out this time. We're going to have a home cooked meal. You do the menu and you let us know what we're GONNA make well. My favorite home-cooked bill is chicken. Broccoli baked potatoes and we'd have angel food cake for the birth ticket like it. We've talked about cake a lot on the rocky road ice cream. Oh yeah that's a really good one really soaks up. And if mom had to make brownies we could throw a couple of those in there too. Why NOT SOMETIMES ONE DESSERTS? Just not enough now. What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? I've had weird things but probably frog legs would be weird. I up. Where did you have frog? Legs Frog legs. I had it. I was skiing up at Tahoe and we went to some fancy restaurant after skiing and this fancy restaurant had frog legs but I only will you order those just because this when we just throw down the credit card getting anything we wanted. Those are just appetizers or frog legs. Then we'd have steak and lobster. After I was really hoping that you said you went to a random pawn and through in some. They'll need a cheese. That's how you got the frog legs. But all right. I thought off off the POD. You said that you also had alligator. Where did you have? This alligator alligator would've been with my Stepdad Kelly. He used to eat all kinds of weird stuff. So that would have been at one meal that we had and that was on the menu and I probably didn't order it but I remember trying it. He he always ate really weird stuff he try anything once. I've had alligators fantastic. Yeah well you always you always get like the boar or anything that you're not supposed to order but they have it on there just for you. Kangaroo Jin Laurel Chinchilla whatever. Love a good porcupine. That's how he really good the crowd into it. Just find the cutest animal and give it to stick. That's long as it's not good for you. It's a healthy bunny pass is if there's like a vegetable squirrel pass now. Don't say squirrel. That's dad's favorite animal. No yeah all right. My favorite words the fanciest place you've ever eaten. What did you get? Probably Morton steakhouse went there San Diego and here in Sacramento usually always get a steak lobster and the whole works. We take our sales teams to the one here in Sacramento and get the. We'd have a private room in the back. With all the top producers. I remember our bills would be like four or five thousand dollars and we got out because they have anything and I was limited per person. They could only have two bottles of wine each person. That was the limit. It's amazing. This company doesn't exist anymore. Yeah no right now. We've got a few more questions for you for food because that's our favorite subject but what's the Best Taco you've ever had well? I'm I'm just going to go with Jim boy tacos. They're my favorite now. What's the thing about Jim? Boyce TACO? The really just peaks your interest. I love the shell. It's nice good flavor. And it's good for you. That's actually chicken tacos have low calories. Yeah the Parmesan cheese and Greece. They put on the show. That's have the grease it's healthy grease grease grease in your stomach. It helps slides down. I think they do that the fourth of July. When they eat the hotdogs they just dip the moist hot water. It's good for your teeth like charcoal and you total strength. Yeah all right now growing up with grandma early you probably eight some different things but what was the one thing you remember eating growing up that you don't eat any more than adult hamburger helper. That was our go to. We had always once a week but haven't had mom doesn't make hamburger helper warming now. I know you recently learned that it wasn't actually a vegetable. But what was the one vegetable you ate growing up? It was called cream corn and then I got into college and I took a nutrition class and found out that corn grain missing for nine hundred years my life. How did you make in one thousand nine years without eating ritual had cell with Bob's blue cheese dressing there you go? That's the healthy version of salad. Lots I did a boot with big boy. Blue Cheese dressing. I think you have the the boop boop cheese dressing on it all right. I think that's always got for food court files.

That is no longer with us. Yeah no matter what I mean they tell me that the new ones called golden one by just call them all argo even when it changed the sleep train. It's just Arco to me. I always refer to it. As Power Balance Pavilion. That was my favorite terrible. And you're not very powerful so I'm GonNa say that's not right but let's go ahead and get in and dad you the only one of those three because neither of us were born. Did you go to the original ARCO ARENA? Yeah you sure did in nineteen eighty six. When Reggie theus that? He became the coach play. There I mean was playing. There is up here Interviewing for some jobs went to the game and it was really nice now. Not only that so. That was like a temporary stadium whether ability our go because yeah they moved in eighty five. It was like my high school stadium. I mean it was very personal but it was cool because you know it was really super loud and well the cool thing to probably about it was it was new. You're in a new city. The crowds just probably going nuts. Even though I don't think we were that good actually. That team wasn't too bad either. I remember like the baby blue short shorts of Reggie. Theus all those guys. I was worried that you were say. That's what you wore to the game. I'm glad it was on Reggie. Now also you also in that state and you also worked in that stadium. Yeah after they moved to the ARCO Arena Bat Old Arco Arena became a business complex and I worked for the money store there for a couple years remember. We drove by on the way back from a kings game and I was like. Why is there so many street lights? Parking lot is like Oh yeah. That's old Arco like what you would never know. I was thinking to myself. That's a lot of employees parking for that business. All right all right dad now Arco Arena. Memory what was the favorite game that you went to see because of you. That didn't know we had. Our family had two season tickets for almost ten years there at the ARCO Arena. What was a fair game you went to? I'd they had been game seven kings. I the Lakers. I mean we that year we were the second best team in the NBA and we were jettisoned. Its away from beating the Lakers. I mean Game Six. Coulda DID IT DOWN IN L. A. And then up there took them all the way to the over time and they had. Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant and we were like David Against Goliath. You know we were always this awesome game now. We went to a lot of games but we look back at those stats that game. You're talking about the Kings. Were Two of twenty three. That's ridiculous and they still made it to overtime. How crazy how close. Hopefully one day kings get back there. Yeah I think. The fans helped kept him. In that game it was so loud. The decibel level was like a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Ravin THEIR INS in the whole way. And when you look down on the court I swear you could see what the waves of the everyone yellen. It was like you could see the air movement. It was just. It was just the craziest so it was historic and we haven't even got close to that since then so now's Akkad. I went to quite a few games together but ZAC. What's your favorite memory of when we would go to games? Besides you dominating the whole thing and Nachos not share those are my Nachos. You picked pizza. My my favorite memory is when when we will. We would yell either way but when we had the lower level tickets which was later on once they became available. You and I would yell as loud as we could. Whenever there was a quiet moment in the game towards the bench to that they would try to bring in jerold walls. You gotTa Bring Joe Wallis. Said you'll be the saddest thing when we lost him to. What was it the bobcats doubt in the mask? Those one of the best mascots. I think we've probably ever had. Maybe the best mascot ever originals Lampson. I think the cool thing to about those tickets is they'd always drop. I don't know if you remember this dad. They'd always drop the thunder sticks. You get a bang those behind because we were behind the hoop. Yeah that was pretty cool thing all right dad one other game that you would mom went to then. Let's go to probably because you paid for the tickets was the first game ever for Lebron James. Now tell us a little bit about that game and did you know that. Lebron was going to be one of the best ever. Well I'll tell you what he dominated when he when he had the when he had the ball he could he would just come down and take one or two dribbles over half court and jump up and do a jump shot over everybody swish it for three points or if they tried to come out on him he just dribble right around and dunk Amman. I mean he was just so he was just so much better than all the other guys you could just tell he's going to be a star. I think my favorite play from that game is he has the wide open fastbreak dunk but he stops any. Throws the ball back to Ricky Davis who just like the big windmill dunk. It's like an iconic play from his first game. Well that's the cool thing about. Lebron is a lot of people. Say He gives up the big moments but at that age to have that much court awareness. Were I came average? You can go and probably do like a nine eighty or something. Dunk it but you're going to give it the old bear navis. I think that's pretty cool. Ricky Davis Baron and the guy was only what nineteen because he came out of high school and if that was his first was neat team he was eighteen. So here's an eighteen year old guy running down like the toughest man in the history of the world one dribble across half court jump shot over. Everybody Bom he could hit it from anywhere. Yeah Lebron he's good now. What's your favorite food? I know you're not too adventurous when we would go to the ARCO Arena. But what was your favorite food. Their Dad and Zach. I just get the biggest beer I could. And the biggest thing of popcorn was my. That was my Go-to 'cause I usually ate at del Taco on the way there or your favorite Taco ever Jim boy yeah. I think that I would think I would always get NACHOS. That was my Go-to and that's like your nacho liquid cheese and chips and then some you get some Jalapenos in the Nacho cheese and it was simple but it was great you put it on. A hug catch fish. My thing was the old personal pizza. I think it was round table or maybe square table. I don't know which one it was but also when we were upstairs when we were up by clap which we'll talk about in a minute we're right by the old garlic fries and we'd venture over those and one other thing I remember is the Diet. Coke just always seemed better there. I don't know what it was is probably because it was like forty eight dollars new enjoy better enjoy realize no ice day and don't spill a spill any of it. It's a buck worth now. There is a lot of things that happen at Arco Arena. Because that was really the only place in town for things to happen. What was your favorite non kings game memory there at our arena for me. It would have been. I went to a lot of different concerts and stuff but we went mom and I to see Eric Clapton and Eric Clapton is such A. I mean. He's such an expert guitar player and musician but I mean it was like He. He's a super. He's a superstar. Shot the share of did not shoot deputy but that guy could play guitar like nobody's business cocaine and Layla. Oh my gosh that guy just hit after. Hit that guy. What was your favorite? I think it was one we went to wrestling. And we got to see sting come down from the rafters because Argos an old school steam that has like the actual rafters at the top. There's only a few of those left where you can do that now. I have a lot of different ones. We actually played. There is a middle schooler a sellout crowd. There's like seventeen or eighteen people there but everyone got sick courtside which was pretty cool and one thing. I always remember is my best buddy Jordan. He was a ball boy for the Sacramento Knights. Kinda like he was for our basketball team in elementary school middle school. So I remember going to a lot of Sacramento Knights Games Zach. Tell us about clapping and signed guy. One of these people signed guy is like a staple of our arena. If you've been to enough kings games back in the day. He make these custom signs that he was hitting the top deck in the front row and he put him over the plexiglas. They're during like timeouts and stuff Now the signs. They didn't always make sense. He would try to rhyme it or something but he was like the worst poet in the history of the world. It's pretty pretty accurate. And then he he had a dispute with ARCO ARENA. Like he thought he was a staple of the stadium like try to get free tickets out of them and then they just like didn't renew his tickets. Now have signed. Girl sits like the same SPA. It's like a spin off. It's like boy meets world now. What is it girl meets boy? Or that's basically where we're sitting at. Now we went to a lot of events at Arco but dad tell them where we parked we parked in one spot. Always we pulled. We did a poll through where all I had to do is take sharp left and then. I'm out of the parking lot and down towards the freeway. So we're never in traffic now spivey's we don't move very quick but when that final Buzzer Bluey kings games. I think dad you might be the fastest Fast Walker I've ever met in my life also another thing that we did as we were walking now no matter meters me and mom or whoever went between the four of us is as we're walking out it'd be so packed on the Concourse Dad. Todd is the mood like we're cattle. So everyone's quiet walking out and all of a sudden a random move. That's another memory. I have old Arco Arena. A would have another memory of walking out dad and I went to the game. We did our possession math into the game. Without the king's we're going to loose they were down like eight with thirty seconds left or something. We'll get in the car and turn on the Radio. And they cut it to. And we're like no they're still gonNA lose and we started driving away and the game goes to overtime. We were too far to come back to grab. Would they even let you back in at that point? I don't know that they would. They ended up losing in overtime. So I don't feel bad about as you know that's why I remember. During that time there was one time we did the same thing. Mom and I. It went into double overtime. We got home and watch the end of the game. That's one thing about spivey's if you notice we're really good losers. We always stay no matter what the end of the game. I think. That's all we have on our Korean Zakar Dad. Do you have anything else that we didn't talk about cloudy. Oh Yeah don't don't dismiss the cloudy so there was a gentleman. We we sat up stairs to twenty two to twenty row K. And think sixteen. Seventeen something like that. I'll seats so there's this this mom this son and there's a the sun is clapping. He was the one of the best he would dance. They'd put signs up. That say stopped when we were on Defense. And all these different things but clapping. He was a staple ARCO Arena. His name was not clapping back because he's always cloud else. Refer to him as clapping except us. Well Bursar fake name so it lasts forever and the last Kings Game Maman high or watching Jerry Reynolds and I had a clap e signing citing he came right there and I pause even have it on my phone I showed you. It was like eleven o'clock at night or some. You're sending this clap your but he was a true fan club. Great Fan every game. They were there a lot of good memories in that stadium. We haven't really gone to golden one as much as we should. I still mad at the teams. I've only been there a couple of games into one. I think it's just different downtown. I mean the good thing about Arcos out in the middle of nowhere. You actually had a parking lot. You want to go into parking garage and all that the cross of two giant freeways out but we'll eventually get back there at. King's you're playing real good right now. I think they've won nine of the less thirteen or something like that helps if you make the playoffs and you're not always talking about. Oh I hope the number eight seed we lose five games. We get like four three or four or two seat or something like that. I think is something you always say. You got to be asleep to dream system slash long. Yeah from that. I think we're dreaming right now. All right I think that's all we got an ARCO Arena. We're GONNA take a quick break and come back with sports job. Sports job with the SPIVEY BROTHERS CUBS. Good get the ball to big country. Generic soccer take all right. That's enough I'm out of breath all right this week for sports jog. We're talking about another one of our favorite sports memories and that is the two thousand eight. Us Open the Gulf One. Not Tennis. We don't watch tennis. And this took place at Torrey Pines in San Diego now. This is a little less painful than the Robert Ory shot. So we're able to talk about and we won't be crying about it afterwards but Zac Dad you to tell me about the US Open in two thousand eight at Torrey Pines because you both were their dad. What are your thoughts on the course? That course is tight if you have a wayward drive you're in a bunker. The rough is nasty. I mean you have to be so strong to get the ball out of there whether it's on the ocean you think. Oh Sunny San Diego but man when that in the afternoon when the breeze I mean we were. We'd love to have jackets. I mean it got really cold but I mean that's a that course is long old school raf the Greens are all kind of elevated. So you've gotta hit the Green. Greens really weren't that big. And if you miss them you get them into bunkers. I mean it's one of the tougher the par-five coming back in the tea boxes up over by the cliff where you're overlooking the beach. The tee box that they added for the US Open is the furthest back. I've ever seen a t six fifteen. Yeah it were five in insane it was like eighty yards back from the next closest T. They like there's a hill we're going to put a new. T. Box and you had to hit it. Carey was to sixty over the Branko. Or you ever in the junk so you better get your game going now. Those of you listening. You're like Oh what are they talking about? The two thousand eight. Us Open for well. We're going to get there but this is the one. The Tiger Woods limped to and eventually one after ninety one holes. But just so you guys know. That's the one that we're talking about and up until last year of could've been tigers last major. Yeah that's right. This was right before the the incident with the car crash in the all the other stuff all the shenanigans so I was thinking man. I'm I'M A guy. Saw the last major for Tiger Woods. It was what eleven years and then he finally won another major. Now another cool thing about this memory for me is this was so we went to the. Us Open with Grammar Erlin. Kelly where I did a lot. I think I went to four five with them. This was the last one that we went with them though. Right Now you were saying that. They probably they win every year. Almost I think they kept going. I just had a job. I couldn't yes they did now. Zac We have Downer notes. Hang Glider guys. Why don't you tell the crowd a little bit about what hang glider guys men's so there's two really weird things about the golf course that sticks on Dad tells the story about the other one. One of them is overlooking. We'll both of them are overlooking the cliff. The first one is that right next to one of the holes. I think it's on the front nine. You see the guys come in with their cars in their hang gliding year and they just get a running start and jump off this cliff over the ocean and then they're just hang gliding around and they land on the beach right over the golf course and really unique. You don't see I've never seen it at a golf course before for sure. Now your favorite part dad you were telling us there in La Hoya there. There's a little beach called black speech and it's a Nudie beach so if you WanNa get Uber noculars and look down and Giggle a little bit. You can't earl is probably like what are you bringing ocular? But the only problem is there's not supermodels at the beach check. These are all people with alligators skin. You don't WanNa look at it. No it's kind of like looking at Zack. And as you're gonNA pass on now what can you do? Once they're about sixty. They have enough guts to go nude you know. And that's what you get right so now back to the two thousand eight. Us Open here. You guys went to two practice rounds in the first two rounds of Golf. Turmeric gives us a little field of those four rounds. You guys went to the practice rounds. Were really fun now. What we would go. Those are the most fun times the players the most relaxed. There's not as many people there they are the Lychee. Get RIGHT UP. Close you get autographs but you can see how they practice to. Which is Kinda crazy watching? Tiger Woods will throw like a hundred golf balls in a sand trap and his cat. He'll come over and he'll step on them and he'll practice like that kind of weird next level stuff that you don't see people do got some cool autographs. I think Western was there with us and he was young enough for US getting all of them. That was at Olympia fields. Western got Ken. Perry's ball autograph ball and one and then one thing you know people on TV watching TV. And they're going all the guys in the Roth. We took a full swing and all he got three feet but when we go to the US Open we watch these guys hit twenty of them out of rough. That's a foot thing in the practice area so they practice it every day of their lives so to us. It's like Oh man. How do you pull that off? But we know how he does it because they practiced doing it. S A cool thing. I mean you look at the caddies in those huge books. They have like well. How do they have all these books? For one practice rounds in for to all the different times that caddies been at that course they have. All the yard is all this all that. Did you go to the gym this morning? Yeah you did okay. Well then you should a seven hundred and eight or something like that. It's crazy the business. One of the best Times there at Torrey Pines the putting green. Us spectator can come up and watch the PROS. Get pretty close and I used to watch tiger woods. He would do this one hand with his right hand putting thing where he only uses right hand and do these putts eight-footers like not one or two like fifty of them and make like forty nine out of him so always at US Open. See how they're practicing. Then I'd go home on my putting green and I would do the same little techniques that they do and it. It helped a little bit. Yeah that's why we all love. Y'All I'm still a handicap it. Hey probably all call you tiger woods all right so this. Us Open two thousand and is probably one of the most memorable US opens in at least my memory. But KINDA ZACH. We break down how this two thousand eight ended to get two extra time. So it's kind of a weird ending to it like tigers in the hunt. You just assume that he's going to run away with it but the course was playing so hard. On that Sunday there was only a couple tigers knees busted. He's like hobbling around and can barely walk. So you should be running away with now is just trying to survive through the end of the round. He's limping away with it. Yeah if he was a football player they would have pulled about the game and wouldn't have led to played on Sunday or Monday. He'd be in the medical tent. Put it in the medical tent normally when you see a final couple of groups of Rocco mediate and Lee Westwood and Tiger Woods. You're like I'm not even going to watch this because it's over but tigers hobbling around. He's he's barely going to make it through this thing. Rocco mediate has a pretty good stretch down the end. He finishes the group ahead. He's got a one shot lead going into eighteen which was a par-five which we've been watching all week because that was the best whole. Sit at now. You guys are at home at this point because what you guys did. Is You sold the tickets for round three and Ford pay basically for your whole trip so you went for four days and you paid for nothing because you sold the round three and four. So we're sitting in the Living Room at Dad's house and you guys were watching this on. Tv whole eighteen one-stroke difference between the top three players in this tournament. Yeah so it's Lee Westwood in Tiger in the final group. They're both on and regulation. They both have less than twenty foot Birdie putts and we're saying what are we going to do of one of them makes it because of the? Us Open? It's not like we're GONNA play one playoff hole for some of the major three plath. Us Open's like not we're playing a whole nother round and it's the next day so Lee. Westwood Miss His hip his PUTT. I tiger comes up. Thirteen foot or nails. It in the crowd. Goes Wild Dad? What's your reaction because we are holding onto the Monday tickets because you can't sell the Monday tickets because they're not worth anything unless there's a tie all I know is I looked around the room and I said I got by Monday tickets but the problem in two thousand eight. It was a tough time. It was like the mortgage meltdown. Nobody was making any money. So I- everyone's looking around Chris and the other people said I don't care about anything just google. You'll regret this if you don't go you had the tickets you're guys are gone. So we got the earliest flight out of Sacramento. It was I think like five thirty. Luckily I've been there to the course so I knew how to you know to park. Get in and all that so we get there. I get a rental car. We get up there. I think they started around. Nine o'clock we got there and it was awesome night. We walked every hall. One thousand nine holes. It was awesome. Now it's crazy. It's extra holes eighteen extra holes but then it goes to a nineteenth but the way it got there was pretty crazy. Zack so zack. I'll kind of tell it. So Rocco media gets a one-stroke early in the match and then we hit the turn after nine holes of these extra eighteen tigers up three. And you're like little flip game over this just done. Let's just turn it off and look somewhere else and here comes old man. Rocco just playing out of his mind. So we're through seventeen holes. Rocco's up by one so in eight holes. He gained four strokes on tiger and he is just feeling good. And then we're going into eighteen tigers down one. This is pretty similar to how it was in round. Four Tiger gets to eighteen Rocco Pars all tiger has to do is Birdie and he comes up and he birdies it so eighteen extra holes. We're already ninety holes in this tournament. Broad tight again. So now we're GonNa go to whole seven par for Dad. What happened all Rocco Gut? He hooked into the bunker got in the bunker and didn't get it anyway. It was all over. Once he got into the bunkers tiger. Just probably hit a two iron striped it. Right down the middle. And but that I'm telling you those nineteen holes like there were two groups of people. There were the tiger fans and the guys forty and over. That was me so all of us old guys we wanted Rocco it was like a Rocco thing and we were all charged up like through the eighth the ninth hole and they kept it. He got three down. We were all kind of depressed. And we're following him. And then all of a sudden Bomi Wins one hole where we get more encouraged and another one. Another one he goes eight was just. It was just was just so much fun. Never you'll never forget that it was so much fun. Talk to us about what it's like being on a golf course. Watching two people play golf. And there's twenty thousand people there watching these two people playing golf well. Luckily I was there for four days with you you and I we walk that whole chorus probably two or three times so I knew the advantage points that I could go to to see it. I mean with twenty thousand people. It's sixty six deep. I'm six feet. But a Lotta guys watch it. If they're even taller than me all the guy you went to Burg. What was he like five to if he jumped now. He said he was five seven. But I measured in my office. I had a ruler up there. He didn't know I'm there. That's very surprised at your last name. Should be Michael Scott Michael Spivey. Okay keep going. Yeah so you're at this. You're like five six rows deep so I knew where to run up to like you know like the one seventy mark or whatever. So I'd say Brian Come on man. Next whole we'd run up ahead and we get to where we just be one or two deep because a lot of five six deep those guys really did know where the little tern points were and where you could do it so the whole thing I mean. We got to solve the tee shots. Come we got to see him. Hit Him. We knew where to run and get the advantage to watch the whole now of all the golf tournaments you've been to this has to rank number one. All that was. Yeah that bad nine thousand nine hole. Play-off I'll never. Yeah I'll never forget that. Plus I've played Torrey Pines south a couple times and I heard that if you played tiger you would've won because you birdied seventeen and Marie. Yeah Double Bogeyed. Every other hole birdie seventeen and eighteen. The last time I played their Scott one hand practice Putz tagger. That's why you got there all right. I think that's all we got for the. Us Open any final thoughts. I think that's all I know. That's I mean that kind of wraps it up it will also what a memory though I mean at that point after everything that happened tiger. You're thinking that's the last major. He's ever going to win but again I don't think he's human so he comes back. Wins one eleven years later. But we think he's GonNa get knee surgery and he's going to miss a month or two and then he's GonNa come back and keeping tiger and any surgery back surgery girlfriend problems all kinds of things waffle house girls everything good syrup all right. I think that's all we got. We're GONNA take a quick break. We're going to do a quick ask a spivey since we have a third spivey with this week and then we're going to wrap up. Do you like the sweet taste amount do. Do you like your vodka to be both inexpensive and flavored like melons. Then we got a beverage for you. From the minds of the host of the wildly popular podcast that shares. Its name we bring you the Spivey special one part mountain dew. Three to four parts Burnett's watermelon one hundred Percent Fund. Drink one at your next party or at three. Am playing halo three please enjoy responsibly. You've got questions. We've got man boobs directly from our listeners. We bring you ask a spivey all right we're bringing back. Ask us by or just going to do a couple of quick questions just to Kinda round out the show. So we're GONNA start out with this one. Serve with you dad. What was the best concert that you've been to? I know you've been to a lot of really awesome. Once I'd have to say number one would've been in the late seventies at the La Forum. I saw led Zeppelin and it was awesome. Maybe it was. That was a cool ban during my time but still what I hear was led Zeppelin songs. The new kids they can't they can't even compete with him. I mean when they perform it was so dramatic it was just oh man. It was good. It was really awesome. How good was stairway to heaven? It was just. It was awesome because as a kid younger than that. Those that's like the when you're at the dance stairway to heaven that's like the slow song dance the thirteen fourteen year old girls and everything. So it's a very long slow dance. Yeah I but anyway. It was led Zeppelin. I mean I. You probably can't see him now back in those days. They've done a concert in like in the late seventies man. That was a prime concert. It was unreal now ZAC. What's your best concert? Only been to four and I don't know that I've seen anyone in their prime. We'll go through all four and I'll tell you what my favorite is so first concert. I went to Nick. Fogel and his mom we saw Casey in the sunshine. Bannon Lake Tahoe. Only Casey is the remaining band member of the whole sunshine. You don't need the Sunshine Band because Yeah Casey looks like he ate Casey from the Seventies. So you could relate. Yes perfect yes. I had my boogie shoes going. I saw earth wind and fire fantastic. Probably the best concert that I've been to best bass player. All of them were still there all the more still live. It was before the lead singer died a few years ago. So fantastic concert. Their Bass player is I could just watch him. Just do things like go to. The supermarket would probably be entertaining. I saw journey. But that was Steve. Perry was with the guy. That's the little Asian Guy. That sounds like Steve Perry. He's good thick thick. Nineteen Eighty Steve Perez Gates uncanny. Good concert and then I saw kiss ever really field. I'm sure dad is also seen kiss. I don't know that they had a prime because I don't think anybody five I don't think they're music's very good but it was super entertaining to watch other people at the kiss concert now for me. I've been to two concert unless you count the one. That's in the fountains really good seventies band. There had some jacker Ba- needs beforehand. I saw Koby Calais as a little bubbly but I mean what can you do we were in the VIP out there? The rush part got pretty wild. The other one I went to thankfully my best friend Jordan. These tickets for his girlfriend then they broke up. I'm pretty sure and we ended up being the DVD's result babysitter at Gwen Stefani and a con. So that was pretty wild. Those are the only two. I've really been to Sarah. I know we plan on going to a lot more soon. Yeah I don't know why we haven't been to more concerts like well. You can hear the ones that thunder from your backyard. Oh that is true. I did when we first moved into her house. You can during the summer. They had the outdoor concerts so that sound travels pretty well. I don't know if you guys can hear it at your house. I think it travels more towards my house but we were. We're outside. We just got home. Anals like WHO'S LISTENING TO FIESTA? By R Kelly at this level. We're KINDA WEIRD. Party is this and then we. We realize we went back inside. It was actually R. Kelly appointed thunder by all right. So let's move on to the second question here for the old. Ask Us by the DAD. You raised three boys but you are a little bit younger. You're twenty five when you had accu and mom. She was younger than that. But twenty two. What was the biggest change in your life when you I have a kid? I think the biggest Changes your priorities change. At the time I was kind of Gulf Hall I Played Golf. Work and play golf. There was only a few courses. He had to get down there at four in the morning to get on the list play. I played it. Ansell Hoffman once. You have a kid. I mean your priorities. Change so Gulf wasn't such a top thing you know it was it drops down and I think you're a as you have kids you become a father grandfather. Whatever everything changes where you put the family up above your own things like golf and now Zac. You and I both have young kids. What was the biggest change when you have the heart bounce stor? I think it's the same thing it's really aligning. What your priorities are your weekends change like. He said we're not playing golf every week anymore. Somehow I'm getting better golf when we only played three times a year though. I don't understand how that works. I just think because you're in peak physical condition that can't be but yeah I think it's just you do things for the kids. Go to fish hatchery and you go to whatever weird things that you can go to for the kids instead of like. Hey let's go on a dude's fishing trip this weekend or whatever I just think having a little one just kind of opens your eyes to like kind of like you guys said I mean you would basically do anything to see that little one smile or have a good time. You're doing crazy things like watching baby shark on replay for sixty straight minutes and join it and singing it the whole way and just you find this energy that you never thought you had you come home from a hard day at work and you're playing peekaboo for ninety straight minutes just because you watch your little one laugh and I think the thing about being a parent that a lot of people don't get until you actually have. The kid is just the way they make you feel and how you WanNa act around them just kinda changes who you are and I think makes you a better person in the long run and you have a little person there that appreciates the weird faces that you make yourself in the mirror. Just try to make yourself laugh in the morning when you're getting ready. Maybe that's just me but you have a little person that appreciates those weird faces and funny things that you do are dancing in a weird way that you only do watching. This little person thinks it's hilarious weird face. I think that's just your face. That's what I like about young people is they think I'm funny. Everybody else does it big. Oh God there was a bad joke but the little kiss cracking up. I'm being goofy. That's very true. You Wanna go ahead and shoot out the last question here. So there's all kinds of crazy stuff going on right now with the economy. Now one thing I do here is the rates. Are Crazy low right. Now you've been doing it forever. Talk US through this tax through for radio well. The way rates work A ten year Treasury note is an index so when that index goes up and down interest rates. Go Up and down this crazy ten year treasury with the corona virus. And all this other stuff you was at around one point seven. It's usually around two one point. It's at one point two right now. The interest rates are historic lows. I mean I'm blocking Jumbo LOANS THREE POINT. Two five on thirty year fixes. I've never seen it. I've been doing mortgage for thirty plus years so I mean if you're going to buy a house or refinance a house I mean now's the time to do it when the ten year the ten year treasury notes so low because you're going to get the lowest rates in lock in those low rates for a long time.

Welcome to the world's greatest podcast and we've got an interesting podcast today. Because i was the news last night. The tom izzo tested positive. For the coronavirus We tried to reach out. Aim unfortunately for us. We have with contact with him. So we're kind of changing things around a little bit. We'll open up the show. Tom izzo kind of his reaction. Sue how he got the virus basically certainly how. It got the virus. What he's doing with his team at staff Moving forward that we're going to have Kevin willard come join outside. Kept head coach at seton back this job and dan. I will discuss the big east the big east four or five best teams players to watch the most outstanding freshman. A you wanna throw at and more ball that we're going to have the great bob. Huggins i think is the hall of fame coach and should get into the of fame sooner rather than later on the best rebounding team in the big twelve. And that's the west virginia mountaineers. They've gotta get guard. Play bingo sheet of better but west virginia team that can make a deep run and then i will also discuss the big twelve teams to watch the big twelve team that can get four or five different teams maybe to the sweet sixteen elite eight ed final four so biggies preview big preview. Tom izzo from his home as he's recovering from the virus a positive test on the virus. Stick around court sides. Coming at you coach. Izzo happening buddy. What's going on breath. You see on off really. I feel pretty good. I mean i got a little cost a little bit once in a while and i had a little chills the first two days but now he'll bad tire just because i don't sleep much but other than that i'm okay but i have no clue how i got it. I never i mean. I was so vigilant that was scary. And that just me. I just don't know how. I don't our gonna play the season. We're played scared. Yeah yeah so. What was in time. I what what transpired like i mean here. You coach new team together. Well we're testing every day. You know we're engine custody. So i've been testing for two and a half weeks every day and And non you know friday. I you know i mean nothing all last week. All zeros and saturday. I felt i don't just coughed. A little dip. God you think no big deal a little bit sandwich. Sunday and and then tested negative both days and then monday i'll send tested positive and went the sheep the pcr tests. And i tested positive again. So no ten days you know it's It's taught but As we're talking i'm watching practice on zoom so get the advantage of technology. It's unbelievable so now once you tested positive all your guys ended tests. Loopy had tasks rocky stephen at the whole crew had. But i mean you know like i'm not really But groggy and stephen tests every day. Because he's with the team and he's lived there. rockies has been home but i haven't I hardly ever see her so there was no bill contact tracing their they both. They've tested negative. That's the scree part of this whole thing. So i'm just happy my teams okay. And you know. I'll rough it and see what i can get done but it i tell you what guys. It's a strange you know. I said i've been so all the political stuff. And this and that the bottom line is We can argue a million things. It's it's still a virus. It's still very contagious and It's invisible and that makes it difficult. Because i i've talked to. You know all your spot away max. The beard good look not a good look at all where she eddie came in the other day because seventy five degrees here in shorts so you got into shorts and a beard is pollution signs up over. But everyone says the same thing that you've been incredibly agent walkman asks no one comes in your office. You've been yeah smart and away. Overdid it. 'cause i i say that because you our twenty one day thing is difficult you know you you think about it. If if one of my guys get like that we have thanksgiving if he gets the virus. He's out for the entire non conference schedule because we play eighteen or seven games in eighteen days and it just hard to believe when you think of that way so i just kept saying i mean we test every day. Seven thirty. Go to our staff meeting. We sit in our stop me with with nassau and there's no reason to because we tested negative at the time and and But we did it anyway. We masked up during that period. So i wish. I knew how because then i can help somebody but it is what it is in. I just gotta make sure that i Take care of myself and And maybe more important they players are safe because they're the ones that game sports. What was their reaction. When i heard i mean like like they. Kind of look at us almost invincible. Let's be honest. So what was your what bothered me is when they started cheering because they knew but you know i do think i told my staff. They said They know what i'd done. They know how much i. I mean we get together on on the floor you know. We're all tested negative. And anytime we even come close to hudli not distantly apart. We always say mask up. Everybody masks up as you guys. You guys your guys can wear masks icon shite players. Don't don't wear them during practice. But i mean if we huddle up or anything they do if we get together to go over something they do any lecture stuff they do and even though we stay social biscuits but the coaches trainers everybody else is is masked up and and i think like you said i mean i think they looked at it like wait. A minute is crazy guy. That's honest morning noon and night about it and then he gets it. And i told him i said no. I don't want you guys going down back and laughing. Because they they know how diligent i've met about it and But i also told my staff that you know. I mean this is just poof. It can happen to anybody. So i think in their own way. You know they just now that the season's gonna start in those twenty one days somehow we're gonna make this negative a positive. I i really mean that it also give time for my grow. They take over. And i told those assistance as you can appreciate stuff all those great ideas you know you can put them to work and see if they work as good you know and also Said that from my coaches my players They can Bond together with the captains have to runs the team. Sorta player coach teams always better. And we're gonna find out that's true. Who's who's running practice for you. Dj dj's social head coach that there. But now i able to have on the floor. He's been the head coach. Payne's been a head coach. Mike garland's head coach so good job. I'm watching them on zoom these two days and You know they're doing a good job. Everything's good it's just This practice set that. I'd be interested in what other guys but it's been a long time with no games. No no exhibition games. Usually we played an exhibition game or two by now. You know it's hard to have scrimmages 'cause it's hard to get officials and so it's been hard on these guys you know they've gone a long grind at least now the ends near We can start preparing for a game and Hopefully our schedule comes out I think by the end of this week and And we start rocking and rolling. Have you sydney like games. When you see a limited number guys like you said you don't have that no other team to play against you. Don't have that scrimmage against gonzaga. You don't have a litmus test to say right. This is where we are right now. You have an idea. But now you're going to go ten days without having your hands on your guys and then after that shoot your what ten days from. Now you're like four or five days away from playing. Yeah and then we like. I said seven in eighteen days so i mean they come fast and furious the way it looks but It's gonna be interesting. You know as you said i mean we. We got a lot of things to cover. And you know we've gotta get rocket in foster at the point and joey houser hasn't played in a game and over a year and he's going to be a key spot at that four position. And you know the aaron henry who were you know a third option now the first and second him and In joey now the one encouraging things up. And i know you know. He's a good player is we've gotten a lot of josh lankford. I mean my back wise. But he's such a good kid. He's worked so hard he's my best two way player by far and we could be really good with him rocket and erin and gabe on the perimeter that we could be really good defensively really athletic and i think a team that like old times. We'll switch more and do some things but it's gonna be at work in progress. I think it's going to be that way for. Everybody said that he was handles. This at birth sees. The best is going to win games. Because i think we're off. We look at football. You know penn state's all of a sudden owen. Three is that because they're not as good as that because they just haven't handled a versus. You know michigan won into and for these teams are ranked in the top. Ten or fifteen and. I think we're going to see the same stuff in basketball. You just hope. It's not your team you. I'll tell you one thing i've said this for the last two weeks. The coaching staff understands. This is part of the All the players. I joked about about the guys thinking you're invincible. But they're all talking to their coaches on how they're reacting whether someone gets that virus allowed to contact tracing issue whether game is cancelled or delayed. Whether you know when the schedules come out when does not coming out. What can we do. What can't we do the most even keeled right now. These kids need something to say. All right it's gonna be right and stability. So how right you would anyone else in the staff. Any staff reacts to the versity. That's how they're gonna react. I think i do one hundred percent. I think you've spoken like the experience coach you are. It's one hundred percent. When i think it's going to be a difference making part of this whole season because we're going to run into it and it's not going to be just once i mean we've got seven guys have had it now they'll be in for round to about the middle of of December so you know it's not you know they could be getting it back and and i think if you complain about it and oh jeez. Why me You know i. I think you're in trouble. Because i there has not been any stability for these guys. I mean maybe a twenty year old that for the last eight months is almost locked in his house. During you know. March april may and june then locked in his apartment. June july august september october. You know it's just not the norm and I really believe that That's going to be different. So i told my guys. Let's not complain about anything. And and i also told everybody better be ready to play. 'cause all sudden i think it was wisconsin. Starting their walk on fourth string quarterback. You know everybody better be part of the team. Now there's pluses to that too and how they respond. So i'm i'm actually excited. I think we have some veterans. I think we have some experience. And i think my staff's pretty experience and you know between the nassar situation. We went through between caches. Losing his brother between the code but cut short of maybe an nc run. I do think we're battle-tested as far as how to deal with that versity and You know we all know now that everybody's gonna have to deal with it. How about you frontcourt. Like i mean you lose zadar who look real face round anyone. Emerge upfront The two guys. That have i mean. Bring as been okay but the two guys are probably played. The best right now have been killed. Fear and the kid. Julius marble tough kid start coming on at the end of last year. You know i'm not as worried about. I think centre is going to be by committee. I'm more worried about our point guard. And yet i'm really excited about our wings because i think a lot of guys me call. I think houser. Aaron henry gave brown Josh laying for they can all play on the primary. We could be a better shooting team. Even though we lose cassius. 'cause joey can really shoot it and and i think josh is back you know so we we lose some but we gained some. You know we we lose those two game josh and and And joey houser but inside. I think centre will be by. Committee is nobody that's stood out but everybody's played pretty good. That's the most important things you take care of yourself. Make sure you get get rest than i know. I know i know when you you got to practice on. And you're going to go back and you're gonna watch it again. You can get on the phone you gotta call. Dj in five and and and road and you know have those conversations and you're gonna call him again. You did our slayers call a few players. Then i'm going to You don't watch some tape on duke. And some of the teams. We play early. Virginia maybe eastern michigan if we finally get the scheduled on and You know going to do a little bit of that. One thing i got seth i got all day man. I sit in my basement. Like a hermit down there and You know nobody bothers me and He called use them to your your your your in a room downstairs. Right against the yeah. I'm down there for for good now in I think my wife's. I think my players are happy that i'm gonna i think my wife champion downstairs. I feel sorry for myself here. We'll make sure stays helping. Send everyone our guards and we're thinking about aetna. Just take care of yourself man asep. I appreciate it man. I was being judged and you'll probably be getting a call in a day or so. I got nothing going on either so three to call me i. I could solve all your problems because they held accountable saying you might add is all right buddy. I'll do it before we start to get into a little bit of previews previews previews of the big east. Big twelve by mayor dead dockage with these new headphones has a little bit of quick rent. And it's got to be quick. They can't be an epigraph because we stopped. We gotta get thought. But i've a question so last night i'm hanging with a longtime friend who ended up. He was on his way to chicago. Does he stopped. Here's going to spend the night like. I'm sitting right here watching tv. I got my ipad. I don't really use my ipad. it's of broke. It's banged up to. So i leave it here on this table. I love you can see this counter over here. And i go to bed i i wake up early because i'm on this new regiment and the guy says hey dan. I said a bunch of emails to a bunch of people. I'm like what are you talking about. So he said everybody that on my ipad that he recognized he said emails to fricken eight million apologies. Today saying a friend of mine hijacked by emails like coach night got one is no set if he have guys that i knew from indiana what what did he stay a couple of them. Were a miserable cell is from my own right like what are you doing art. I got my take great. Crank first of all lockett. Lock your ipad. lucky climb. you'll have to worry about it your ipad. It's forgave great break. awesome awesome. actually. Had i think about i think about about my phone and said he does. Everybody that i notes taylor. What do you think the fred. He's been a friend since grade school. let's top to. You might have put them on ice for a little bit. Stick them at the end of the bench. You know that's allow your sensitive. I'm not sensitive. I just i just. That's all set. Oh my god my feelings hurt he it. My feelings aren't hurt. I wanted to know what you don't. It's like he's leaving it so the question is how did he know your everybody that that by my ipad edge in the world. So you're right. I got changed the coat. We were just talking about it. Because i've had broke his act and he's like man i go go by. Do i pay come by. You can get a deal. Someone's going to give you a free seat theater room. You're sitting in dan. what's all right. I see that theater room you're sitting in. You can definitely ford an ipad. Line great prank. Okay great frank good. It's like navic event that he killed your friend. I like exactly wonderful individual based what you take one through four i. I'm going all one. Two three and florida bill. And no i think villanova's best team the country says i and again i think that jay wright makes the world of college basketball look easy. I think that he always has a guy read. He always says the guys coming on. And and one of the teams that i'm interested in seeing is butler because you know this kamar baldwin to me has been our anna rivera. Yes he he. He wants so many games that that they don't have him. Are you going to fall off the map. Because they said yukons in this league right. Providence is there's this is a seriously in the you know. Have a guy. I don't know that butler to me butler it makes it harder than what j. d. understand what i'm saying about j i j right right through. He keeps everything simple. Take care of the basketball shoot. Dependents senator shots threes keeping front contest. Shots let me get one shot. I n he's never ranted. You know what i mean. They're never their own. Yeah could break it. Caleb daniels transfer to lane. Who's going to help replace Cdc bay who's a success score. They've got out of succumbed west he got jeremiah robertson Talking to j says stepping out shooting it you know they've just got a lotta pieces right now. I'm just the it is. Brian aunt is gonna be back and he's going to be better. Justin moore had a tremendous freshman year. But he hit so how good is crate. Everyone's is creighton. obviously marcus. Cigarettes is a lot of people's player. The i personally think it's going to be either convalescent. Jeremiah rockets. how good is crate. We know they run great offense. We know they're going to get back with six eleven protection another front court guy. We know that ballot can make threes. How good is he. 'cause i think yukon is really good. I think you can if they can stay healthy. James book night's gonna be a first draft choice. They could get out of the jackson. Who's a freshman who's just a freakish. Freakish freakish accurate. They play hardest. Hell they defend cook. Cook and get back and he blocked shots. You congress everyone's talking about. I'm telling you one thing you can is really good. Rj from howard. Who played for for daddy. Sad less gotta play throughs. That is a physical top. Cut a hard noticed. You guys got experience. I think they're really really good. Let me let me go to creighton. For a second. And i'm gonna talk about style like if i ever went back to coaching seth. I'm curious your thought. I would play like creighton plays i play so damn fast. I'd get down the floor. I try to get eighty every night. I try to guard. If i could but i love the way they play a taste. Something else. Seton hall loses. Quite miles powell. I like bribes ache. And i like bri sake and a lot to run. My team harbored transfer smart winning combination. I know that. But i i. If you're going to replace somebody. I'm not mad at him. I'll tell you something else. This is always makes me laugh with david. duke An providence pretty damn good man i mean providence to me is i other the klay fast Do they got yes. I think they're the hardest team to play against an alley. Now you may disagree with that. But i'm a big province fan. I got the top. I got the top i got seton. Hall's five i got provinces for the kid nate watson's a physical frontcourt player. Aj reeves could shoot it. He's got to be more consistent. David duke i talked coolly base said. He's a pro flat out a pro. You know they got to shoot the ball a bit better but i think those five teams have separated themselves. Let me ask you though. Here's an x factor. Dj carton goes marquette. he's eligible. Dj cart might have been the best point guard in the country. Dj carton had issues. There's no question he had issues But when you look at marquette. I say well okay. Marcus howard's gone and that's fine. I mean look twenty eight points tonight. He was fantastic but dj cartons. Go come in there and play. And i'll tell you this i feel like votes can't count on. Dj carton like i. Can you count that. That guy's going to be No watch concern and that's a concern especially this year. Here's my thing with this. Like point guys grow up right at some point. Some guys is not till they're senior. Some guys that's when they get to college so dj carton. It didn't work out at a high of state. They moved along but he is an uber. Talented dude man. And i think now comfortable. Look i don't know that wo- do a great coach not agree. I have no idea. That's for their fans to decide. But when i see woge coach. Now i think he's comfortable. Do you understand what. I'm saying that like he's not he's not trying to prove he just coach. You know and to me. That's that's big. That's that's just kicking came out of the locker room because they lost the game at what i supposed to do right. He's actually just connecting. Although let's here's the you could probably just to say you got to connect with the best you know. He loses to hauser's he takes the carton. The houses don't get eligible immediately cart nuts. I made the some things are going. But i i. I think the garcia could pick six eleven fresh glass chance to be really rugged marquette's town they have a chance. They have a chance to be really good. Who is your player. A year is going to surprise you but at knocking surprise. Msa colin gillespie. And i'll tell you why. I think that that position at villanova is that in the wing position. I get it. But i think that position at villanova. Villanova is huge. I think david duke will absolutely be in the running Look we talk about talent dj. But i think i think gillespie is the next in line you know going back to was name reynolds member. Rentals played their study reynolds. I recruit have successfully. But they've always had a guy that you know. I have to be an nba player. Rtd aachen oh you know all. I think that further notice villanova winning the league. I think it's great and scoring the most points. I think it's providence being the toughest. All right let me ask you this. Let's go back to uconn for second. You always say this. You always say coaches. Can't panic coaches have to be even keeled. Particularly in this. Year is danny hurley. Is he even killed do. Do you trust danny early. Well i had a long conversation with one seven. I would hope that some back out of we had a long conversation exactly affect just say look i had conversations with a bunch of guys how you react to what's going on is going to be the key dot how your team rats and i think he really does understand. He's very early when he was seton hall. He had his own personal issues. And i think he's very very in touch with the mental health aspect of what these kids are growing through. And i think that he's i think he's going to be extremely patient with the protocols replaced but i think i think once they get into a good routine of testing. I think i think he's going to be fine. There's shut down for fourteen. Days is big could serve my hours. They're shut down for fourteen days because that's what their protocol. Its biggest five days of practice before the first game so like his concern is when the guys come back by inclination is practice practice practice practice but then you know what we have injury because these kids basically can't do anything. They can do some outside conditioning by themselves. That's it so. I think that's gonna be something that's just but i look at danny hurley's team got enough experience. I've got enough town. They've got to go to player in book night. They've got legitimate. Definite front court that got some maturity. I think they're really good. You know to me. Like my new year's andrew jackson the kid from yukon. He's hiber this new big big time athlete. I mean big time athlete. That can run and jump. Get out in passing lanes. They're going to be very aggressive. Defensively my team to win conference is going to be no. The by bulb. Prediction is yukon. It's going to be an elite eighteen. His back at every go. I think they have a chance. I'm to go through my last one. My last thing is my throat sock. Eventually your guy deals got to win games. I think they've xavier's A program can't be thirty. Eight twenty nine beat cincinnati. I liked travis building that they eventually asa program they expect. Moore's i was gonna say that. I here's a here's the bottom of the big east. You know when. I saw patrick ewing's team play early last year. I thought okay here. We go and then everybody left. Does he have to win. What's going on in to paul. I mean it gave dado an extension which is great. But you've got some story programs with some guys in. Xavier has to be included in that. They're under five hundred last year. Xavier is set coaching in ohio. It's it's like okay. Ohio state and xavier in cincinnati. Right there with just in dayton as well in terms of facilities then you got when i coach into. He was a much lower type thing. But i'm i'm with you. Look the one thing i'll give you. I'll give you a bold prediction. Ready art champion comes out of the big east. Whoa that is bold. i like that. You're sold off up you. Maturity aim comes easy. Good arkley jeremiah. get better. They don't beat themselves to. I'm sold on villanova. I'm also sold i. You know you mentioned you kind being elite eighteen. I'm not so sure. And i. And i look around and i think the big is probably going to be the best conference but i looked at. I'm starting to look at things differently in the tournament. But i'm starting to look at toughness. I'm starting to look at grit. What do you say get old stale stale. And i look at the big east and that's kind of what i see and i look at some of the better teams you know across the country and yeah they're good top to bottom. I don't see entitlement. that makes sense. Yeah i can't. And i think the national conference. That's old school big east. You say going back to the soi. I'll tell you what we're going to get an inside into the big east Because we're going to have. Kevin will join us and kevin will kill us not only about the pirates but his feelings about coaching the pandemic and what. This big east is all about it. We're gonna welcome. Kevin willard head. Coach whole started absolutely incredible job at seton hall. But everyone knows that kevin that came up in the patino coachee true at kennedy recently. Tom abbott marco new system at iona works rick pitino. He got run over cracks any crack. Eddie cracked his hip and knee. And he's he's doing better. He's one of the great all-time guys a lifer. But in all the times. I know rick put a premium on working hard being engaged in individual work in all the years you worked for rick in dad with rick. Did you ever get taken out of practice. i. I know you've been fired at a practice. What have you been taken out a practice. Well i say the year we went to the final four. We ask franscisco garcia tai. Kwon dean larry o'bannon and he would he used to do. It's us make the assistance play. Live one on one defense in the drill. Call three susa once and so you would pass guy you three you pass it. He ball fake for two and the and the one was. You actually went up and try to play one on one defense. And i always got francisco because he just loved abusing me and after every individual me in vince taylor we would be in the tubs for like an hour. Because her knees were swollen. Our feet couldn't move and it was like and this was five days a week and it was brutal but we got to the final four. So always say that reggie vinson. I are defense. Kinda got us to the final four. I i've reggie guarded anyone coach. No no disrespect to you. But in the pantheon of basketball players who doesn't belong in this picture. Reggie theus kevin willard or vince. Taylor definitely definitely be man. I think that's also francisco. Always wanted me because he knew he had the easiest way he can. Just shoot over me. He's supposed to be up. He just he put me. He took me he put me in this Into the data form of respect for the former coin. No that's not it. But i was a big when i was a kid. I was a big reggie theus fan both with. Unlv and with the bulls. And did vince taylor. Coming out of high school in my world in the courier journal louisville man. He was the bids taylor. Are you kidding. those guys were to me anyway. They were great great players. No disrespect no no trust me. I agree yeah. We used to play three three full court. And i tell you what i mean. This is going back tw- Fifteen sixteen years but reggie could still flat out play. I mean i was. I was shocked when we started going up and down. Just you know. I knew how good reggie was but i didn't. I grew how good he still was as a player at his age. I mean he could still just flat out. Light it up why. I was three three at five o'clock in the morning. Chris clock in the morning to play three or three. Yes or no. You got a little older. It was like five thirty five. Forty five at that kentucky. The kentucky days. I remember my dad. My dad used to sleeping close because the other way cups early to go play three on three recalls every x fat. That's good all right. So i might style gone. Quit subic night don. Gill gone first of all. Just you're feeling a miles allen draft. Wh what are you hearing that. He's an incredible incredible man. Yeah you know what I everything we've talked to everybody. We've talked to Everyone's really excited about him. Just because he's one of those guys you can put especially on an nba court with the amount of spacing that the nba has now He's one of those guys you can put on the court and he's only going to help spacing and with the premium on the three point shot in guys that can knock it down. You know. he's well those guys if you put on a team that has a superstar to you can put them in the corner. He's gonna help create space. Got it makes shot. So now he he do that. What he's a phenomenal. Team mate He's phenomenal person. It'd be great for an organization so you know everything we've heard late first round early second round. You know it's been. It's been hard for these guys in the draft. I feel bad for 'cause they're going crazy 'cause they've just been by themselves working out but we're we're excited. It's only a week away now. Set always says. Got the coaches out of gonna be even keeled all that kind of stuff. We're going to have the most success in these weird times. How much are you and your staff monitor. Out of monitoring's the right word but paying attention to and i'm being literal here literally where kids go when they're away from your program. Oh yeah dan i mean. I think it's something that You know i. I think you have to be really careful with how much you monitor them. You still have to make sure that they are. They have their personal space away from the game away from you but i think what we really tried to do is educate our guys about where where probably you. We shouldn't be and where we shouldn't go. I think you know. We've been back into jim since july twentieth. And we've taken you know three test two weeks in july We haven't had a positive. And i think what we've tried to do more than anything or team. Doctor trainer myself is just educate our our guys about where the likelihood of that you could catch this virus. I mean obviously the virus. You can catch anywhere but our guys have been really good about staying away from certain areas and certain parties or places on. They've been very focused on getting back and playing basketball. I think that's something that If you talk to every college player they just want to get back and play games. And so i think they're all taking this responsibility to understand. You know what a positive test does. So they've been great and it's just continue education. Continue to remind them. But i also don't want them living in a bubble where they're not enjoying themselves or their friends Because it's it. This isn't something that you have to hide your room for you boy. It is a difficult balance there. About how you guys. So you lose miles you lose gil absent mcknight. Who is a terrific defender. Where are you guys right now. Where where's the health of your team. Where's the physical health. The mental health our role starting to be defined. I mean where's your team right now. You have been with them for a while. I think you know you something coach about mental health and that was obviously when when we all got lockdown in march and everybody got sent home the first month i think the guys were really good But as this as a drag don My president was phenomenal. My and my team doctors were great and understanding that you know for me getting them back on campus was nothing more than two seven them mentally to get back with something normal and When we got back in july twentieth. I mean we didn't do any team stuff and we hardly did any basketball stuff because they were so d- trained but for the most part. I really focused on their mental health. Getting them in a good spot talking about some of the social issues that were going on really just trying to get them to kind of get back into a normal rhythm. And as i moved into september we started picking up basketball wise and and like where my teams that they are. I think they all understand that. There's a great opportunity you know. I think they understand miles. Twenty four shot game. So there's there's a lot of shots coming down the pipeline. And there's a great opportunity for guys step up and i love guys like standard jared road and i think is going to be you know going to have a monster breakout year miles. Kale has finally as a chance. Not just having to be a great defender but having a chance to play lafon. So i think guys are excited about the roles that they have And there's some guys are going to step up. I think you're gonna really shock a lot of people. I saw john ralston. The other day said that bryce atkins isn't it in isn't play isn't doing is is not been cleared What what are your expectations for him. So you know obviously we were really excited to have price But you know he's kinda come off with you know career where he's he's battled. Some injury so You know what we've done with. Bryce is really focused. More on just getting his body as healthy as possible. through better nutrition strengthening You know medical care you know. Just making sure that we're giving him everything. He needs to get his body. You know now into this year before his career one hundred percent so we've taken a really slow with him. He's been doing individual workouts every day. He works already. Does dummy offense. He goes dummy defense You know he probably could have been cleared by now. But i don't think it's more on my side. That i just think this is a young man understands the game. He's gonna understand what we're trying to do it for me. It's more about just getting them to the starting line and getting them to the finish line. There's just giving him the practice so i think he's looking good. Will he be available for the opener. I'm not sure about that yet. And talking of openers. Like how the schedule i mean. Obviously it's bounced around a lot. Where we're we're you out with it. And i know it's a blank show as you call it. Are you close to it up or is it a kind of no. I mean i you know. We're starting with winter up in louisville downloadable to really tough games to start and we come home. We played baylor at home. I know a tough one. We go at Rhode island which is another tough one at penn state which is a tough one and then we play wagner and then i'm always scheduling six because the rutgers game i just didn't you know because of the big The big ten. Acc challenge eight overpaid chunk of their week. we're going to try to play the rutgers game through a five week during conference play so you know my schedule's pretty much set in an biggies play starts december eleventh. Now you know. I think it's a it was really you you you for years and years and years so you know scheduling this year but you gotta worry about next year and that was really the hard thing she just couldn't really just get games this year. You had to concentrate about you know what your team going to look like next year. Who do you want coming in. Who do you wanna play on the road. And that's year So it was kind of one of those things that you just kinda had to really be patient And then kind of all worked out the way we want it to work out when you go practice and i so people understand i had i had level a jordan. Tell me that. His team practices in manse dominant the players. The your team's practice masks so so we do not All of this has to you. Know i know the guidelines but those are kinda be perfectly kinda irrelevant Because everything really kinda falls on your local board of health And what your local board of health says and does and it's more about contact tracing than anything else so we've really. We worked with our local board of health. And we're meeting with him again. Hopefully this week Just to show the plan that we'd done the amount of testing that we've done The coaches are in mass I think the biggest difference for me is you know i. You know. I've social distance from my players. My staff as we know we stay. I would say ten to twelve feet away from them. And it's it's been hard at times to try to make corrections and try to get a kid in the right way but you know what we've tried to do is you know we don't do film sessions. We don't have any meetings with with the players you know in a room. It's all in the gym Just in case we tested positive myself out of one of my staff members out. So we've been very. I think that's the biggest difference dan as we've been very the staff is almost socially distance from the team. We stay ten feet apart at all times because it's the contact tracing that that really gets you. It's not anything else so I think as we move forward you know the fact that we're testing so much you know. We have to be able to use those tests to be able to contact trees and keep guys moving forward because if we're not gonna use months and months of testing where we know exactly where we've been and what these guys have been. You know. it makes no sense of test as much as we are so. I think that's our goal. And i think that should be everyone's go. Local board of health is really to come up with a plan of using the tests to help you contact trace of getting everybody into quarantine. I can't even imagine like you know obviously especially when you have a new team trying to do things with them. You know the whole thing that things took for granted avoca claire. The office watch film. Having two players come individual workouts really kinda getting engaged with player. You know means being like you know. Put your arm around. You know encouraging them doing different things with it obviously changes the in a way. You're gonna coach speak away. You're gonna coach to kabul's played echinacea's sat out last year. Correct where how. Good i mean you know get you lost. A guy that i think was under appreciate our team equation. I thought he i put back. I was just a tough fierce competitor. Excellent defender and brought to you. Know a winning player. Where's molson in relation to that type of player it. That's a great analogy coach. I it's you know. Takao reminds me of alpha. D alison province. One of those guys. I can put him in pick and rolls. I can post them up. You know shooting basketball better than he did. When he's echinacea's you know he's kinda junkyard dog man he just he goes out there. He makes winning plays He's he's very unselfish with the basketball. Which i love you know when he can get into lane but you know he's not he's not hungry to score he's hungry to win and you know he's a guy could play at at the two three four even guard one through five and again when when i look for transfers i i look for guys that really you know that can that that love winning and that's why talk came as he wanted to come to a winning program and i'm excited about him coach. I think he's the guy that no one really talks about Any kind of under the radar and all things that show up on the twenty fifth. Put up seventeen ten eight you know. He's got that ability coach. What's your overall thought of the big east. Well you said this. I said this last night is somebody. I obviously i think villanova until someone can knock them off is gonna is the cream of the crop. And and i love with jay donny. He's built in my opinion best basketball program in the country. I just think it's second that none The way his players play The recruiting at such a high level. No obviously being when to last three national championships. I like creighton. this year. i really do. Ziggurat is one heck of a guard he is is really tough to stop and as fast as they play with ballot. Running around shooting. Threes from everywhere Very they're tough match-up I think it's to be really good. You know it's kind of i. I didn't really watch you complex. I never. I don't watch anybody really outside the big east but you know they got some really good players danny things so well defensively And then you know providence. I think he's got a chance. Got some seniors. He's got some older guys and then the rest of the league is. It's it's really tough to explain to people and because we play so many different styles we have guys that play zones match up zone. We've guys get run up and down you know grind you out Xavier grind out so I think the league top the bombs going to be just like it is every year. But i do think i think no best chance to win the championship. I think they're that good all right. I got to ask this question. We're letting to go to this. I just got a kick out of it when i guess big east. Bbdo some catholics. Called you kinda said ash. I didn't want. I don't want you on anything. Daddy's payment yes or whatever. Whatever wants to coaches kids. Kind of wind a little bit. Which iphone solaris thought. It was just good school. Big east banter. You know like like you know back in the old days ever just kill each other could keep. It had a lot of respect. I was shocked at the response. People got because i thought you would be. I thought it was hilarious. What was your take the response that that that people had to your snarky comments. I you know. I it's Everyone gets offended by everything i was. I was answering the question. Honestly they they ask you awaiting about yukon coming in. I said you know for seton hall. There are program dating great coach. They've really good players. I said but for the league. The league gerald's phenomenal. You bring it back. Founding member of programs won national championships legendary coach. Calhoun built it now dan. He's doing a phenomenal job. Everyone cut out the part that i thought it was great for the league and day coach players. They just wanted the fact. That was being honest that you know for seton hall for individual programmes bringing a great program into league doesn't mean it's great to that individual program and you know people don't like honesty want to you know i guess people just want to hear you know the bs that like. Oh it's great and this is great and everything is wonderful but you know that's not really the reality of the situation. Kurt new jersey harder man mean come on hat on. It was awesome. I thought it was absolutely. I just laughed at people like lost their gone. This is just you know. This is a budget coaches. just choose. it's the way it is. And oh my god kept right. This is going to be a great. Everyone competes against everyone. I i said those guys ever sat biggest meeting. They really know that that is the truth. Come on man. I just even when ed cooley opens up his mouth against good. I mean you know i i. I'm friends with day. i love the i think. He's a great coach. But it's my job to beat him. You know his job and beat up so you know i. I'm not friends with you. You know it's not. And i won't be so thank you and makes you tell you actually kick guys i. I enjoy listening guys. Thanks for having me on. I think the big twelve could be the best conference college basketball. I think it's right up their nose to nose the big east i've with the big east and also the big ten you. I got this just a lot of teams in this league. They could get to the final four when national championship. I'll give you my top four. Tell me what you think. Baylor ridiculous guard play elite defense mark bottle just a relentless competitor of tristen. Clark comes back help near obviously replace. Gillespie eye like baylor kansas. Marcus garrett's one. Most underrated players country without doubt osha. Bazi ages a very very tough. Match-up david mccormack. I think he has to step in. Knowing replaces the movable object booking no one replaces him all right. But i think that he'll be functionable. I think brian stops. It's going to give them a little bit of scoring. And i love the brown kids so i think can't state. They defend their physical at now. Getting rid of the same homecourt. I think west. Virginia now concern. Virginia you gotta take care of the basketball. You gotta shoot it better. But they're frontcourt is ridiculous. They are dominating in the frontcourt they can shoot with way colbert. I think there he met can make a deeper in texas tech all kinds of new pieces. But they still have tyler edwards. They still have touched shannon today. This could make a peavey whoever was talking about the mara burnett. I'm telling you mike. Pb is a six foot five inch winning player. Terrific they get. Marcus silva santos From vcu the ball just fines of this team defense. You talk about styles of play. They run real motion and teams. That can run. Actually run real motion as the season goes along. They get better also makes them better defensively they can guard anything in. It can guarded on instinct. They forced people to make plays they. Take you out of your offense. Like the games that they play against Make the fewest assists of anyone in the big twelve. Why because you can't run off. It's not forcing a player to beat them. So those are my top four with texas just on the outside. Did you know last year in the big in the big twelve. Only two teams finished over five hundred. Only twice at is crazy ainun one kansas. I'm not picking anybody other than kansas. And let me ask you a question if you were having a just college draft. Okay just look this is. It's just college. Where would mark is garrett be picked for a year not not a career. Not a i love it. I know i do too. I love the duty. I was seeing. He can defend get lane and he doesn't shoot him but that dude wedge. He's a grown. That's and i'm with you a look. You and i talked to scott drew on his podcast aired butler and the old group from there. I think they're terrific But i don't see. I look i like baylor baylor smarter than anybody. I think in terms of what they're doing was scheduled. Seth i mean who they're playing anybody and everybody and i'm i'm cool with that. That's just in this year. Like i'm great with that west virginia hard to play against. But you know what west. Virginia's record was last year in the big east or the arctic club. Stretch where they were one in six. They came back and got this exactly. They came back and got nine night. Here's my thing with hugs and first off. I think west. Virginia in the big twelve is a bad fit up having said that it doesn't make sense to me especially not with the travel. You gotta shoot the ball south you gotta put the ball in the basket. So i think west virginia. We'll win their home games. Tough enough to win on the road. I think they'll be in the top three maybe third after those and and for the same reason i'll say texas tech because let's be honest week. Do we believe in texas tech or do we believe in texas to win tough gangs. Which team i. I'll tell you which team i believe. I believe texas tech. Far more than i believe texas to win big games. I mean i think. Texas tech has a A nationally understated culture of toughness. Texas has an overstated opinion nationally. Because we've seen big time players we've seen five star recruits but we've also seen them not win and again. Do you think like like you mentioned travis steel when we did the big east. But isn't it about time. Shocker get going a little bit see. I feel about texas football. Every year i hear texas football's back and every year. I watch him. Go whatever. Same thing with texas basketball. I mean some point. You gotta go in here. I i have texas my fifty miles. Texas people throw socket and the reason being is look great. Brands overact late ferocious competitor. Great rebounders Of another frontcourt guy. That has a chance to be really good. They've got their backcourt back. Which is good. You would courtney remmy. Matt coleman andrew jones. I mean they they. They've got guys back. You know you wanna root for. I mean let's face it i mean i mean how can you not want to refer kid. It's coming back from beat cancer. Here's the deal a better team at turn it over twenty percent of their possessions. Better team you know. Basically couldn't control the rhythm of the game in big gates i think. In my opinion they got jerker samson frontcourt player who's experienced player ganassi's they played better. They played a guy new brock honey. Brook hunting him. I took him to italy with this adidas trip brock. Cutting hand is the hardest plan was physical player in around is like a rock. He has no ego and he just wants to knock this. Not at you. I think you play brock. Cottingham what he did the embassies in he was a reason had nothing to do anything stats and do with a metallic it. The guards can take care of the basketball with brown and other pieces they have. They'll be fine if they don't take care of basketball every year. Were say you know. Guard like they. Do they have a big big twelve back. You gotta have backward the big twelve so there. I met my surprise team. But they're also by team that quite honestly i could be throwing a it. Might team set my player of the year. I'm going with jared butler. Because i think he's gonna do more. Marcus gear would be right there. But you mentioned a cunningham. Let's talk about maybe. The best player in the country with oklahoma state paid cunningham. Let me ask you this. When when zion williamson and that crew went to duke. it was automatic. Their top five top one. Whatever and i know they're sanctions and they may not get into tournament. Okay but i'm not talking about the tournament just yet. What does kate cunningham. Does kate cutting. Elevate this oklahoma state team to a top ten teams. There's four there's four. Big twelve teams basically in the top. Twenty five this kate cunningham. Elevate them is he that good but i also have is a who i think. Asian off to a great start last year fell apart. Yeah but i mean so. Backward is legit. They shoot a mexican simple forever when he. He's who need to be whether you need to be. he's got size. Ellison i would have said yes i you know. The one concern is likely is really really good. I love their backwards. I think a big loss for the is the kid. You're not the kid who tracks for the big shocker. When that that that would have been the kind of heart soul of your defense so you haven't a lot of young players at step up and make plays but he's good enough cake against player to your net conference. He's gonna put ridiculous numbers up although all that coppedge and he's gonna be number picking address. What will his numbers. I think it's numbers will be like eighteen. To twenty six to eight assists and six ten rebounds over under or triple doubles. I'm going to say. I'm going to say because i'm not sure about their shop makers I'm gonna say probably under over i. He every every person i talked with you watch them on tape and every person. I talked to everyone who coach deb. Usa basketball people just say. He's incredible by incredible teammate. Incredible work ethic plays without ego easy to be around genuine. He's he's the total package and that league is just of you. Look at the the effort. The upper part of that league is fiercely competitive. Because we haven't mentioned oklahoma. All right. am the one thing. Obviously all know about teams coached by lockers. Yeah look they're going to be well. Coached gonna make shots play with good spacing. Play hard brady next back. Reeves's back who's a very good shooter. I think can harman's back. I mean they've got they've got cases that are back that could beck could do surveys. The league is. I think the legal role hard traveling. Now i think the one thing that may be the level the playing field is going to be you know playing on a kansas is going to be playing a kansas. You know the best home court league is no longer best. Homecourt lee and i think i think that's going to be interesting. Young's west virginia. They're going to go back to back portraits just to travel handle that and then place it. I mean the bomber league isn't as good that i don't know where kansas state assure year way for being what they need to be. Tc loses desmond bane. I think they still got kevin. Samuels who i think is a legitimate legitimate Player the hard way i think is a good solid -firmative scorer but i i'm not sold on. Tc i'm not sold on kansas state. But i still think. The league is fiercely competitive and really well coached much mentioned lon kruger and he might be the most underappreciated coach out. There look brady. Manic is in is twenty. Seventh year austin reads can go. I like their team. I like hugs his team. But they i just. I saw the other day. They shot twenty six percent from the three point line. now. I hate to harp on this. But i'm a big believer man. I am a big believer in you. Got to score points. You gotta shoot the damn bond care if you're in highschool grade school. Let me ask you this. Georgetown transferred mac clump. How will impact the league. Willie impacting. it'd be interesting technical known emigrates as better. Maybe the the that beard and the reason being think about where to got started. He's a former junior college coaches Division three couch. He's a guy that coach stubby pro basketball. I mean he basically this is my team. I put together a figure out figuring out and he he doesn't look at it as a bird put pieces together. Macon's can have to give up a little bit of himself a good group. That's just the way it is. You know the rumor on on him or is he was a little selfish. I don't know the kid His shocks selection is going to have to. It's going to have to commit himself defensively if anyone can get the best adam. It's going to be chris. Chris builds these unbelievable relationships with players quite a texas. Tech's got get tired. Chamdo an absolute beasts khaderah woods experience. Plante marcus santos silva transfer. Bcu the ball just finds him a fine he's eight. He's under the rim rebounder that you wedge rebounds he. He's always put himself position to rebound a basketball. Chris got a tough job. And then it's gotta find ways but they were. They were together this summer. What's your allowed to. They had yet. It's whole team on campus. Which i think is is really important. They had guy sitting out last year. Which i think is just as important to all the way. I'm i don't want butcher the poor guy's name but the transfer from unlv is gonna give big physical frontcourt player and they've got good role player. So i think texas tech is going to be there. The most intriguing thing though is texts. It goes back to your right eventually an checkers. Eventually you gotta turn the corner at texas. Not only you gotta get the tournament. You've got to win games. He's a guy that took. Vcu to the final four. He's a great communicator. He's he cares about his players. She's been able to recruit high level players. The back court has to produce it. The backward does it produce you. Don't survive in the big twelve. That's just the way it is when you know what talking about the big twelve or do you. Have you have a sake throw a sack atom exhibition. I rolled it up. And i said acting to. I was stay. I went in to hilton coliseum watson. play iowa with a what halliburton was playing. Nee late and hey i know. Receiver bolton is good. And he you know. Obviously he's been in the news and all that kind of stuff with what happened at penn state. But i i. I'm a believer. That i was st. However they've done it is always good. I'll throw socket iowa state right now and i also. The world of college basketball has changed. Okay david di moretti leaving texas tech. I think is huge. He had another year correct. Yes guy he's like a He's not as good. Don't get me wrong. But kind of a college version luka doncic he's played in big time international stuff and and i think losing him some big deal i i. I think they'll be fine. I i think there but that was good man. But i'm gonna sock it. I was state who you throw in a socket and why is is the backward texas it like. Here's thing i can. Text us could be switched sixteen team and compete with anyone in the country or they can be backward that you know it's like i mean look eventu- eventually that backward has got to produce an upper-class backward andrew jones has been through incredible incredible star matt came in mcdonalds. Go american coordinator. Amy i had on my teammate. Italy's a great kid but as as a unit that group has got to take care of the basketball. You can't turn it over twenty percent of possessions all right. You gotta make good shots. You've gotta make good decisions. They'll be as good as that back. Because i do believe that. Greg brown's gonna rebound and he's going to be an active defender jericho. Sims will be better. I think they've got enough other pieces. That backward doesn't play. Well they're back to right on the bubble and that happens. You know puts a lot of pressure on shocking. I'm a huge shock. A smart man. I think he's really good for college basketball. I think he's a great communicator. Cares about squares all those things that that we all value that backwards eventually got to get better. Gotta be better offense. Craig bohl conviction couple. I got not one but do big twelve teams in the nc double a final four. So basically you got the you got the biggies up being the best in the country and you've got to two so there's no one left. I've got a biggies team winning the championship. I've got to final four teams. There's one team left all right. We'll get to that because we're going to be doing preview in everyone but before we do that we're going to give chance to speak to the huggy bear. Who by the way while he was in quarantine ish behavior during the pandemic. He looked like he absolutely came out and was at at at at a whole ground with the beard and hair he. He went all all coalminer on us. It was unbelievable and We we have to post at some point. We have to post a picture of chris. I tell you what joins us with a tad bit of wisdom on the big twelve west virginia basketball coaching journey pandemic and Just like nothing better. but hugs. hugs is a philosophy. He's like aristotle ceased. We are excited to welcome and go to west virginia. The great huggins who will be a hall of famer should be sooner. Avid but dan dockage hugs. I don't understand this. Obviously i i. I'm a little worried about dockage because earlier in the show. I compare due to our tunnel. Aristotle a great philosopher. Obviously dacas doesn't understand your academic acumen and the prison in which you look at the world through. So would you even take a look that he would not appreciate your philosophical way to say. I did not appreciate. I just laughed at the comparison. Aristotle now and i think you might be right. Who unfortunately for both of you people nationally get bigger and how smart you to are. Oh man i know where. I'm as dumb as it gets and A coach what. W- what have you been doing like are you you. Are you in the office all day. What are you guys. Do like practice go home players away. What what's going up for for a while wasn't much go Trying to recruit a little bit. You know this the zone saying now you can. You can dial it about it but you want you know. We did some things we had. We have some people on zoom. Talked is about vase things going on and decided today and so forth strategy stay busy. Algae stay basically. You're keen here. You got obviously to mount masqueraded. He's manager francorp. Everett's is like a west. Virginia they fought fourteen but obviously gotta make shops and got. Take care of the basketball. Are you guys where we're probably like everybody else for long way. Right now We we do have the ability. That makes remember shots and we do have two guys inside. Who are i think. Premier rebounders college basketball. So i got a chance but as you know you guys know it comes down to i tell our guys. All the time march comes down to make an open shots. You don't get any of them because guys guard a lot harder when you get one you gotta make and when you when you we we. We lost a gonzaga and sweet sixteen. We had our chance. We just didn't make any that got might. That's i think that's the difference is is making open shots bad coats. That's all we talk about. You shot twenty six percent last year from three until you really struggled early but then you gotta going in the league play. What are our kids able because of all that's been going on like do you anticipate shooting to suffer because kids aren't in the gym as much or our kids in gym more because there's nothing else to do. Well i can only speak for our guys. But they're a lot more Not not not not the big as much as as the promo guys but the privilege guys are in there. But you know damn talk about us are are three point. Shooting which was miserable we went through skid where we didn't win any games. I think we wanted six or something like that in one particular game. We miss twenty two shots inside of fourteen. You work at that. I mean it's not a lot you know. Utah too big is where where do you want to see them through. Obviously colver in and She white and how much they grew the on the obviously the free throw line to the free. Throw line a lot I'd take a day up on her happy when they do get to the free throw line or weren't as fast you know. Hopefully they can. They can shoot. You know seventy percent or so and then just score inside. Lean scored close. They get a lot of close shots. They just got make them. It's it's an amazing thing today. That guys. I think are trying not to look at the rim. So they and i can remember going back to the guys i add on tonio wakefield in danny fortson. Those guys in the nfl that we worked on is just getting your eyes on ramp. I mean if you're shooting some juicy automated if you should. I think our guys have any clue witness what we're getting better boss. Dan i love it. That's what they look the best. What we say broadcasts by blankety blank ramp it standing right there and every jim. It ain't moving. It's yeah i mean i. I've never gone at nosers. Actually measured one. But i would assume that they're all about the same. I mean with an answer so it's better but it's amazing. We had you know i've got. I got a couple. I got one defensive tackle for the football team cincinnati caveman. And and. And 'cause. I i just i couldn't get for what's bad. I mean he just. I went backwards. So i gotta be like an office to tackle and defensive tackle whichever it wasn't and he said he said coach. I can help i said what do you mean he said man. This dude is so so he. He brought in a couple of his buddies. So now there was three album and and and i mean fortunately literally or those three guys out but went on to be an all american and average almost twenty seven points a game and scored every time. He touched it because he put the time any. Put the working one I i think if you do that. Take me when you catch it as close as guys catch. You know it's Do starting at around simple fake. They had that's one dance. Favorite coaching points in brilliant analysis. Turn games put your eyes on head on weight. Which what's your phrase they put you on the rim. You put your children on the friday. That's fricken era style right there. A coach you're going to go the coliseums going to have twenty five percent capacity. Is that what i read. That's what they're saying. I mean also league. Hopefully this comes out and we all get cured. And we'll we'll be able to put people back in there. But i just i don't know i felt a little better about you. Know people in the stands. When i saw watch notre dame clemson game. I'll let you guys that's unbelievable. Hey off subject we. A big sketchy going on dan. Daca chat spread of his visit. Masturbate guy for a long time childhood friend visit. Dan left this ipad out. Went to sleep the guy that went on his ipad and started emailing random people including coach night. Obviously just left it. There then ban woke up this morning. Have to deal with the repercussions. Is that a great prank right masterful prank or a jackass or jackass boat. I it's hard for me to say. Because i don't own an ipad Really really don't know how to work one. So i'm probably not the best asked but i would lean towards jackass If it had an ipad out of work on. I got a. I had a sent email. Every like indiana player that he recognized including coach nights secretary. Marianne he sending them like. Hey you miserable. Sob stuff lamb like east. Come on man. it's a jackass move. Hugs i think great progress because it happened to you. I just don't know enough about a high pets to you. Know have much much say about last time we talked to you. All hooked up in a camera looks their net. We we had you on tv here. What i mean. That's that's just a sign of the times we hire people to do that. I knew that was coming. How about you are play. And they are serious. And who do you take care of the ball initiating the ball you know. Where do you see those guards on the. I don't know that's why you're aristotle man not like jordan mcdavid in his third year and and he's learned a lot and he's he's become i think more of a true point guard There's mcbride had a great finish to the year last year. A he's a talented than kyla. Extremely competitive guy and sunday. Neil can really issue while now. I mean i'm he's i you know i was third could really shoot. It really should at this guy really ships the ball anti sherman shot every well. College struggled basketball. It was hard hurting. Stick in all kinds of things going on but he should the ball really well right now I mean i don't knock on wood i. I don't think we're going to have to make an open shots. I don't know about creating open shots. That's probably a good as much. I want them to do that last thing for me before we before we let you go. You mentioned recruiting like people. Ask me this all the time about schools. And i really don't know the answer i can. You have kid come to a football game. Can you have kids come in on the weekend or is it simply what you were talking about earlier. Just so now. It's not like we're on an island. No i mean the only thing only. They couldn't do do that that stuff and so you know you show pictures of campus and and Pictures of the pitchers practice facility so forth and so on and you hope that they think they're there but I you know it's it's it's roth auto you know. I think a lot of people were are getting commitments kids. We're actually gone. We we got to commandments from two yards. And and so. We're basically done you know and and you know you. Can you can recruit juniors and so forth. I have trying to concentrate on our Our help art good better. Had you put together a schedule during this message. How do you deal with the traveling. Your league which is crazy as it is anyway while this is going on so it's been crazy it's been crazy and and and and i'm gonna say this i keep getting in trouble every time i say it but i think that you would incur. We've got people making decisions about our game. Don't know anything about game. We got to say. I mean so. So we're going to start november twenty fifth. What's magical about november twenty fifth. What about a week earlier. So don't have to talk about the betterman. This can care the student athlete and doing what. You're right by the student athlete. So now you gotta play three games and and five or six days. That's not good for particularly if you travel what was wrong with the start gate. We had been answered it. What what harm does it cost to have a have a an exhibition game and give the money to charity. Click on that was a noble thing that we get eliminate that they remind them. And aided the close scrimmage which really were closed because everybody knew what score was but a close game and we. I just blows my mind at the guys that make decisions for. Don't know anything about what we do. You know and i can say those things i guess. If i'm you know. I'm willing to steal guys used to say no about at the end of the trail but you know it's just it just blows my mind and i didn't. I didn't realize it till i. They put me on all these committees. And i don't want all these committees. And i'm looking around at are you kidding me. I mean he's guys and they come up with stuff that is just it blows immediate eligibility for transfer. What good does that do so now all of a sudden you've got to kind of build a ford around your team so the guys aren't coming in coaching. And then what good is it to the kid. No i have said this. I was transfer is the transfer. The best thing. That ever happened to me. I i got to practice year win games. Obviously i got the practice for a year. And i got an extra year at school so i came out of there with just two majors and five minors you know. And and the and then went on to grad school. And it's you know it just to me. It makes absolutely no sense. It's not best for them educationally. So you're going to go to one school and you're you're to transfer a meals from somewhere else in the sa- different it's it's it's probably going to be different curriculums. It's definitely different professors. I don't understand when we you know. We re tastes it and talk about. Academics academics academics. They pass rules like bat. That defy it just makes no sense to me. And i just i keep looking at these committees and i keep playing. Wow i know. I never in the backyard. I mean it's just it's it just blows me away and i i don't i mean and you know the whole deal is and you guys know i mean you know how they look at us. They look at us as we in. All we wanna do is win. You know we do anything to win. And all that which is absurd. Which is absolutely absurd. I've got as as you guys do. I know i've got basically probably hundreds of guys out there who i am the resource. You know when something happens. They call me when they were when they get a promotion. They call me you know so. I'm not the bad guy. I'm i'm one of the good guys like you to And and most guys in our profession just about everybody in our professions are good guys. We're trying to help those kids even when pe- whatever it is they want to do and be but yet we get looked at is. We're not either. We're not intelligent enough to make the right decision or we're gonna do it Strictly for for us and not for the good of the game. And i think that's absurd. Man is you are speaking to the did acquire. Because it's the thing that pisses me off most in what i'm doing now. Odds is that you sit around and talk. What i call gurus. They get all pissed off. Because i called girls. But that coaches a number one trying to help someone gets them where they can't get themselves care about their health. Their families help their wellbeing. Your education Them growing up being better able having a chance to succeed being good parents. Good husbands good at an people have no understanding of the amount of time. A coach goes inputs energies into that. As opposed to just that people take just just to win a game. It's so misunderstood. It's one of the things that aggravates manner. But you dammit. Aggravates me about as much as anything. Since i've been part of this other side with the people that we deal with don't really understand it nor wanna understand. I've never heard really anybody other than coach. When a guy had the flu and was so sick he could already held a set up home cooking moment in his house and put him and his and his wife took care. My wife took care of him. You know i mean guys whatever our guys at at our hurt that don't get around a walker had knee surgery where to rehab my house my house. 'cause it was one floor and he didn't have to go up and downstairs like you would have had to go up and downstairs and you know i. It's it just blows my mind guys. I'm telling you. Because i've you know i've been doing this. My dad was a coach. As you guys know. And so. I've been around coaches my whole life since i could walk around coaches and i just don't know very many coaches. That weren't really good guys. That just didn't really care about people care about their players and account win when it comes time to make major decisions regarding Game we can close out of it and it drives me crazy. If you want to know the truth abington defend perfect people that have literally no clue yet have a platform to give their their thoughts. It dries it drives me nuts. Coach does because you're exactly right. I accept and i talk about it on this all the time. Kid get hurt. He's my house. Get as knee. Surgery may damn sure. I was there when he came out of surgery. I may damn sure at the best doctor and you guys did the same thing and it drives me for it. Drives me crazy notre. There you go you got to leave. I'm gonna let you go on that show back Last question you hugs big. Twelve real quick kind of overview. What's what's what's your take on league. It's brutal brutal. I i just look at. They had own the paper We've got we've got five teams in the top twenty five halfheartedly. I mean come on five a really good so in in in the coaching are like the coaching in our league. I go in there to coaches being used to before you know all of this happened but you go in there. You look around like he'd been on the phone for he's been to two thousand four's he's been on for and i look around. Sixty percent of our league has been in the final some precedent. Yeah it's time and whole fingers and hugs right away. I'm gonna say before so you don't have to if you don't get the damn hall of fame this year. It's absolutely trust because what you've done for college basketball on for every program you've been at and how you've done it. And i know the coaches have any say and i know you say well. It's not a big thing but it should be because an award like that serve and and and it's earned over time it served by you conducted your business in a man. If you're not a hall of fame. I know who the hell is so. That's my two cents and that's not me kissing your ask us you don't go to bust my balls anyway. Just leapt on me. True will so. I appreciate it john. That's that's not why i got into business. It's not why this looks like we got into business because we love the gang and we wanted to help with people and That's what i've done. You know. I i was. I was really fortunate here to coach daughter. And make rather insists that this is could recruit scout. They could do all those things. And actually tom izzo. And i were talking about the other day when i went to ohio state. I was part part-time coach. Part-time in pale is an. I used to see each other about three or four times a week. You know either going to scout opponent or going to recruit a kid and you know those days are gone man. You know it's it's it's it's why. Why are we at the top of our profession. We were allowed to mature in the profession. Now all of sudden those guys. Those guys are under locking key. They can't go out anywhere they can't they can't give any information. They can't watch film and and helping us out and they can't do anything hundred percent. I mean yeah. I mean that's it's a it's a shame because got now guy. But here's the difference. I thought i never asked what i was getting paid. Until i don't know probably. Let's first. Time was virginia tech. I you know that's the first question guys wanna know. I never knew when. I took the columbia job and i took the pitcher It out when. I went to virginia when i went to to miami went to long beach. I had no idea when i arrived on campus. Had no idea. How much is getting. Because i didn't do. I did I was lost in wanting to coach at what. That's the only thing i ever wanted to do. Because i was pocket coaches. I have no idea how much i make my wife does. I mean that's never been an important. I mean it's never been important. And if you look i i turned down the miami heat for about five million a year to stay cincinnati making two hundred and eighty thousand. I was at the time because and this is this is real quick. it's a. It's a true story. I go in on just i think it was a saturday morning or sunday morning. We had camped going and alan jackson terrence gifts and nick man axel and one other guy might have been beaufort. Were sitting in my office at like. What are you going to me. A lot of money has a lot of my. I'm like yeah. But i mean do you need money and actually says it. I said wait a minute you just signed for the down the other cast and say that you know and he just said look seriously what guys like us going to do not guys like you that i mean that just that that's that least square in the heart and i i just i. I called my wife. I said i can't. I can't wish you wanna go anyway. But i can't do this. I mean i just can't do this. I can't leave these guys. It was all about how that's what it's all about. There's no doubt about it but hey we appreciate yet and stay healthy. Keep on grinding away. You lose your opener. I don't know we're going to south dakota and they haven't grabbed her bracket yet so But we're we're we're gonna it's it's it's really a good turn really turn. That is a really recreation turned right. Britain's zona grades in texas. I notice jonah star. That's a good start. White travel safe state. Stay well and hopefully catch up soon.

Today's NBA is Different | Reggie Theus | Showtime Podcast with Lakers Legend Michael Cooper

"Welcome to another episode is so time with poop insightful vs with my Laker Legend at Indy a forensic tonight. We have registered GIF. Basically one of the California guys. I like to say we don't get into that. But before we get into that world are three things that help you took it to the NBA from a young guy. Wow, okay, you know I started off as a baseball player. So I have a I have a real belief that your skill level grows with. Your environment in other words, we used to play Wiffleball, you know to Wiffle ball is in the driveway and I think that that also helps you with your hand hand eye coordination. We used to play we have a game called great plays where we would my neighbor's yard. They had a hedge and we would run and jump over the edge. They throw the football in the or the baseball and we catch it diving over the top and when we hit the ground rolling you the key words, you gotta go gray play-off places you have listened. It was a it was a great play as long as you didn't hit the sprinkler on the other side. Does it seem like y'all had some money off with football believe that having a ball that was solid on one hand. They had all these lines on the other Lynette together. Ya know what you're talking about. I I grew up on 118th and Main so I don't know I go down south. Need it until it was broken and only hung on by one thing cuz you know how to yeah. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. They had a new one every other day. Right? No. I'm like, I'm sorry. You got the wrong guy here. As long as you grew up in Pasadena. I don't want to hear it. I'm not trying to hear that. I've known you a long time. So I know better and then you know, you know dribbling up and down the driveway. I thought Mike one of the things that helped me growing up as I was small like I was a smallest guy on my eighth grade basketball team. So that really helped me, you know develop my ball-handling skills and dribbling up and down my driveway, you know, having the kids trying to steal the ball from you when you don't have much room to get away from all those are creating and developing your habits and and you're off your sports in general Greg when you start growing you went to Inglewood High School and through those those Summers when you realize that you're going to not play baseball, but play basketball game. You know, like I said, I start off playing football and baseball baseball was my first love I was a smallest guy on my eighth grade basketball team and I was five ten as a freshman in high school. And when I graduated I was six 5, then I grew two inches in college. So, you know, I was pretty much a point guard most of my life until I you know, obviously got to be six foot seven and wage was they were able to play me at the other guard but then I still had point guard skills, you know, like, you know how you we I was like one of those early early before combo-guard word was out there. I was a you know, one of those Royal Guards I must have been to that and and before I pass this up cuz we have some some women listeners read know Reggie was six foot five six seven years have big big afro was a very handsome guy van. Very handsome guy. It was almost amazing to play this Adonis. Yeah. Yep. Right now I'm like everybody ever covered with the people that the reason it was hard for me to guard Reggie when we were playing NBA because when I would look at his eyes, I'd get lost in his eyes and he took an Inglewood. Have a great year. How did you find your way to UNLV? But first of all, there's no way you can say that I loved it up with something, you know, even even if it's a curse word now, obviously everybody's come on here knows Coupe was a great defender, you know physical and and everything else and it was also on a great basketball team. So it was a double whammy for me because the most of my teams sucked so, I'll never forget true story. Now, you may not even remember this Coupe Y no, no, no, no. No, so we're playing and I'm going a hundred miles an hour because you know off You do two things. If you're not going to win the game, you know, you gotta finish the game. You better get yours. If you're going to you gotta keep the team close. You gotta play hard the whole time and it was really tough for me. But Koop said, he's a Reggie. Would you slow down? I say poop. What are you talking about? He said you're down by 20 slow down wage like 30 on me. What was Englewood like grew up in the seventies in Inglewood, California? Well, you know, see I was one of the first age groups of kids who integrated. So we were I was supposed to go to Morningside High School and nineteen seventy-five. They basically integrated Englewood and the the cutoff line was Crenshaw and like vanez or something like that. So everybody that's this side of Crenshaw had to go back. To Inglewood High School, everybody on the other side of Crenshaw went to Morningside. So I was bussed over there and it was it was interesting because I grew up in a mixed environment different cultures. We had a dog. I got I learned what white flight was early. We had the racial issues early and the school went through a transformation and after my second year or you know, it was pretty harmonious, you know, we all got along we had our beefs but yet we worked it all out and and it was pretty cool because of being exposed to a different culture that early I thought really was in life in for me, you know, I read growing up in California there have been so many of us and they always when we were coming up all we heard was Back East basketball Rucker League this and I was just did run down a couple of names way. You can kind of like just you don't have to comment on it. But these are some of the people that grew up with us Raymond Lewis Roy Hamilton. David Greenwood Friedman Williams Marcus. Jonathan was from here. Oh, yeah. Yeah this guy, I don't know if you played against him Mark wolfmeyer. You remember him? Yeah. There's score the shooter Deluxe score 48. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah Dwayne polee Lorenzo Romar Byron Scott Justin, and I'm sorry if I missed any other there's a bunch of up a bunch a lot of guys raising. Where would you rank yourself among all of those and not trying to say your first second or third but you know feel that you played competitively with a lot of those players, Well, let me let me take it a little further 1975 Coupe was probably the the strongest year in La history for for that class was probably the best in La history. We probably we had nine guys playing the NBA. Yep, and that's you know, I'm a year a year or two behind birth. Marcus so I didn't put him in this group, but you had you had David Greenwood Roy Hamilton you had Kiki vandaway. Yeah Big Sam's you had trouble with James Hardie member James Harden Long Beach Poly. Yeah. Yeah first name, you know him by his nickname trouble trouble. Exactly. Exactly. You know, James Wilks, you know, how bout that you had Bill Laimbeer Cartwright, who was this crazy? His name is not allowed to be mentioned on this show. I understand the fucker. Yeah with a passion but off. Yeah, then you you appreciate when he came to Englewood guys were shooting at their bus so you could appreciate that long. So I mean, but think about it think of all the guys that I named that had just, you know, Stellar NBA careers and and you know, I'm not Brad Holland's remembered groundhogs brand. Yeah, so I mean birth That class was incredible when it comes to you know, playing in the NBA. So if I was to rank myself, you know, when it comes to MBA careers, you know, I would put myself up there with Marcus yourself. There's probably two or three of three of us three about three or four of us that have real life, you know lengthy NBA careers where we actually not just a cup of coffee, you know just was on the team we were actually players. So you being mystery, you know Championship Michael Cooper. I used to get sick of hearing that by the way, just just get ready. You know what I mean by career for your thoughts any day but ended up passing listen anything them green eyes. Look at how old are you now? I'm sixty-three sixty-three and sixty-four I haven't had here in the last three years. You still got a job. And yeah, you know, I would cut it all off for the championship rings you got so that that's not even keeping this key. Keep it 100 that don't mean nothing nothing. You have a great High School career. How did you find yourself at at Vegas with Coast? Arkanian? Well, nineteen seventy-five. I was being recruited heavily by you know, the dawn's and San Francisco. I was pretty much everybody in the country. It used to La was was right there and but what happened is dead in those days there were there were very little recruiting Rules by the NC 2A. So Tarkan his assistant coach Lynn Archibald were at every single one of my games the prop. The reason I didn't go to UCLA was because wouldn't had just retired and not only did wouldn't retire but they had four authors. Guards going to UCLA at the time and a Roy Hamilton and David Green went about five or six others. You know when I say you remember Spenard and that's when our yes, yes, but not not yet another it was another one. It was with a couple more. I can't think of the days right now, but those guys were going there too. So and see because we grew up going home say in playing in the men's gym all the time. You know, it wasn't that big a deal for me. I was more interested in style of play. So, you know, obviously Vegas was a run-and-gun type of offense and really fit the way I wanted to play and and the other part was it was close to home. The only thing I didn't get a chance to do. I tried really hard as I wanted to take a trip to Hawaii with Joe cuz I I try to act like I would come but they figured it out and canceled my trip. You should had shark TARC schedule a trip come that's one thing we did wage. Join its price, you know, we did Hawaii know we did eventually yeah, we definitely went over there. So it was a lot of fun though, but Vegas was perfect for me because it wasn't far from home and you know, obviously if you had Jackie Robinson you I don't know if you remember him played he played Morningside Robert Smith played at Morningside Big Lou Brown played at verbum Dei and and and and he played it in in Vegas. So we had four or five guys from LA on Vegas his team. So really made me feel comfortable with the with the program. What's a good talk stories? And they were a good heart story. There's so many right if I tell you if I have to kill you if I tell you most of them that's what I was getting ready to bring up and one of the recruiting employers that offer would have do you remember Sugarloaf? Sugarloaf the slipper. Yeah, I I actually know a couple of them, but I don't know them personally know if you get to know her against maybe there's a different story that you ought to tell me about it, you know, you know, you probably got to meet donkey lady too, but I don't know about that. I'm going to Mexico so I did not get to reach Converse but the way they much difference in New Mexico. Okay, so, you know, there's a lot of things going on there to ignore Ellenberger wanted to be in the bright lights, but he has a surprise he had to survive in the southwest. It's already have a great career and vague just and you get drafted. Did you buy the Bulls or was it the Kansas City Kings? No, no from the bulls the bulls. I was I was I left my junior year and I was a nice player drafted in the office. So I would have been a present-day lottery pick Coupe. Do you ever think about the money? These guys are making I mean does it just it just makes you just like my stomach starts hurting every time I think about it off. Well, my stomach hurts a little bit. But the only thing I'm satisfied about is that they would not be making this money unless of the groundwork that we laid down in the eighties to for people to enjoy the game and always say this. About magic and bird is that they change the game of basketball. Yeah players coming in and they made it enjoyable to pass and and be part of a team. So I get a Little P. But I'm also happy because without our success they wouldn't be making this money. Yeah, and I agree with you and that's very admirable but it's still bulshit, but we still working but we still have the money. It's still bullshittin. Let's call it what it is off this if you were in today's game how much money do you think you'd be making? Oh, I'd be a full boat guy. Yeah, you know number I'd be a Max. I'll be a hundred million a hundred million plus. Are you kidding me? $5 RADS? I don't I'm not really sure but but I probably be somewhere you wouldn't be able to call me up on the phone with carrier pigeon to get you gotta call my people to my people could call their people and then get to me that way. You know, it's it's it's You know, who knows? I do know this when you're dealing with generational money, like these guys are dealing with yeah, you know are where we are in our age now in our sixties, we don't have a mindset of a twenty-year-old but the amount of things that we can do right now with that kind of money when you think about your family your family's family your kids, you know, there's so many people that you could really help and and and you know, if you can hang on to the your money, which I think that a lot of guys they make so much money, even when they make mistakes they they're they're okay, but it's it's a blessing and and I've truly believe that you know, you are where you're supposed to be and and having the opportunity to sit here and talk to you, you know having the platforms that we have now we can often make jokes about it, but it's all God's Will and and we're blessed to have the cruise that we've had. Yeah for sure. So red you get with the bulls. Over the Bulls like in the late seventies an amazing thing you play for five coaches. Yeah. Yeah, you would bring you would bring that up those run a really well-run organization until my boss. Yeah. Well used to live there. So you don't listen. I had five coaches at six coaches and five years. That's that's where my career started off. You know, Arthur Works was the owner of the team at the time and you know, he was a hockey guy. He you know our team you back in those days. We were attacked shelter, you know, that's that's off. That's how he hit his money. That's what he did as you know, right we were right off and so it was run that way and and it really showed in in the box office and obviously when reinsdorf took over and Michael came and you know, it became a different story. I miss playing with Michael Jordan by 15 minutes by the way. How about that one? That's crazy. Tell that story. Well, you know, they you dead. You your trade deadline is in February and February at a certain time. And obviously I was going through, you know, a problems with Kevin Locker at that time and they wanted to trade me page and it was 15 minutes before the deadline where they couldn't have traded me and they drafted Michael Jordan the next next year in that draft. I could have been packed in. I could have been ker you know, I could have been any of those guys, you know, I'll be sitting here with my you know Rings. I'll be like Coupe like three or four rings. Let me just like Coupe second, sit back and talk stuff off like charges. Yeah, right. Like you said though, you were put in the position because I think had you been with him. You wouldn't have been able to be the player. You became I mean and I don't know cook, you know Dennis Ross in a different world. Yeah. Listen, you know, you would have been different and and you know, when you watch the the the show that that they did the documentary that they did what's it called? The Last Dance last dance this summer when you saw that, you know, and you know, I work on SiriusXM Radio, so I do a lot of shows and and there's always this conversation going on about that way. It came out how all the guys were griping and bitching about what you know, they they didn't get enough time. They didn't they didn't get enough props from Michael. I'm like shut up just just told you she knows close your mouth and and just suffocate because that's exactly where your career would have been had you not play with Michael Jordan so shut up, you know wage, so tell me about he didn't praise me enough. He didn't Pat me on my back enough foot. Are you kidding me? You could have lived with that Reggie. Oh, come on Coupe. Listen. Listen, it would have been a joy. Actually. I tried even in Sacramento. I tried I have so many years of playing on, you know, a bunch of bad teams. I tried to get to a a better team and that's when they traded me to Atlanta and I got to play with Doc and Dominique and Moses and you know, we went fifty five games a year, but that that only lasted a year and then I end up in Orlando. So the only good thing about where I've been is in this is the truth. I grew up a Laker fan I grew up, you know in Englewood a mile and a half two miles away from the form. The Lakers team used to back in the day used to practice at Inglewood High School. So I used to see all those guys. I've been a Laker fan for a long time and but my season was over early so I always got to come home and watch you guys in the playoffs. So, you know, and then I started working wage. Doing television and stuff. So I got to come home and then I got to be a part of the kind of part of the the other TV program. So it was good. Funny Reggie. Hey, we're at the point my show Thursday. We call it grease lightning round Rich. Imma give you six names five six names and just tell me a little bit about that person. Okay, Joe and Gavin Maloof great guys. A lot of fun. I was with Joe and Gavin know they supported me when I was at New Mexico State they were you know part of our support group. I've got to become the age of Kings coach, but it was a bad year because they had started lose their first, you know few million dollars and Joe Maloof got both his knees done. So he was he was on meds pretty heavy metal here, but great guys great guys still friends today. I actually talked to their mom every now and then and she just got married, you know a couple of years ago, and we're still we're still wage. Contact so really appreciate those guys for the listeners. Those are those are two gentleman that owned the Sacramento Kings the six dollar burger guys. Remember that commercial off topic Ridge, you know, the funny thing is, you know, I used to I used to work. But when the Palms Hotel was was the hotel that they owned which became the spot right? I worked there for years before I when I was in between coaching and TV and all that stuff. I was you know a casino host for a year over there was a lot of fun. So you really use your Challenger looks your handsome looks and the green hey, hey Coop. Listen, it was a hell of a job. I had a house in Vegas. I never even went to I had a sweet the hotel and my job was you know off hand. All the celebrities that came in so it was a blast. You know, I say, no. No, she she wasn't allowed in our establishment off. The next day Raymond Lewis come on the best before it's time. You know God really is a great example of having enormous talent and not the attitude to go with it. You know, you had a way before his time really gave numbers to anybody who walked in the gym. I'll give you another name the bird Everett remember that remember their battles back in the day you want to see 45 and 56 those two guys got together. That's what you were going to say 45 and fifty points. It's it was unbelievable. That's right. That's a good name Bridget Jerry Sloan the late great Jerry Sloan my favorite song You Know Jerry coach me my second year. I learned a lot about basketball. I learned a lot about the principles that you could live by Jeff. Was a tough tough guy to deal with because he was Jerry Sloan my first year trying to coach after that. He he started to you know, find himself but I learned so many things about the way he hath people and the law that he lived by and enough that it had even today when I'm coaching. I still live by some of the rules that I learned with him in the short period of time I was with him and ironically, you know how it works Coupe. As we got older and I had a chance to get to know Jerri from a different level. We became very much closer friends, you know, Iran Autos. I was coaching. I ran his offense. I talked about his defense, you know, and you know, the only problem I ever had with Jerry's he says, you know, I we he used to get on me about my defense. Obviously. I said Jerry let's let's let's just understand one thing. I'm never going to be able to play defense like you but you are never going to be able to score like me either. So let's just let's find a happy medium somewhere unless live right there Jerry tarkanian. A chameleon, you know Jerry he was a person that he taught me that there's two types of coaches one that has a system and makes his system work the players and then the other coach creates a system for his players that he has and he that was something that I learned from him. I learned what hard work was all about. I learned what being in shape was all about and you know, Jerry Jerry tarkanian the funny guy, you know Jared's he'll just talked to you you start talking and yelling and screaming and tell you just run out of breath wage. It just run out of bread just lift would be moving and nothing coming out like Rodger Dangerfield unbelievable, but he was great one-liners, you know, I never forget the the one he told us I'll never forget this when he says you guys you guys are horrible. You're terrible. You're an embarrassment to the school. You're robbing the university. Next time you go pick up your checks, where are bass Logan painted Vegas. I saw the song. Yeah, don't talk about breaking rules. Now, you know, if you live in a glass house do not throw stones. Yeah. Come on, New Mexico. Knock-Knock was a teammate October 13th birthday guys me and him the same birthday. Paul Peirce same birthday. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. We actually we used to race back in the day. I used to race who called each other first on the birthday just to just everything was about competition, you know, it is dark and I you know cross paths on a number of occasions documents to ask me for my tennis shoes after games when I play for the Bulls now, I'm trying to get a job from him how you know, that's ironic, right? That's how things work, you know, never Bridges manager. So I can tell you never know who's going to be able to give you a job one day. Who's the better golfer. You know, I've actually tried to get dark out on the course many times and he's kind of ducked me. But the last time I remember he was a a ten a nine or ten and that's kind of where I am too. So, we're probably pretty much pretty close to saying Michael Jordan the goat, you know. When you play Michael Jordan the night before you got to play Michael Jordan, you don't sleep too. Well a man. Yeah, you didn't sleep too. Well because I would say the difference between Michael Jordan and other great players, you know, put magic in that group Larry Bird, you know, you can go on and cream. I mean, there's so many guys that that are in that group the difference with Michael Jordan is Michael embarrass you if you slipped up he would embarrass you because you know, he had a swag. He's got the the long the shorts, you know, you know the and he stick his tongue out and he'd uncle and everybody and then your teammates would be pissed off at you the whole time. But Michael Jordan is his tenacity and you know, you've seen up close guys tenacity, you know, we play with even Magic Johnson after we retired and he was still a bulldozer. You know, you you around Kobe all those guys on that level with that type of birth. Honor, they're all bulldozers. That's why I would say you can't if you play with a guy like that, you have to accept and in respect and you know and think about this is who they are dead. And this is why they are who they are. And you all you're doing is you're along for the ride. So do your job, you know last but not least Joe weekly and before you answer. Let me try this massage real was a local hero who coached over Crenshaw High School, but he helped a lot of us when we were young young man playing basketball to Joe weekly tournament becomes something else in basketball as well as young people in our community your thoughts Reggie. Well all the guys in your podcast that you've named from our era and before long With through Joe Weekly's League you go to play the Joe weekly League. Yes, everybody played and Joe was someone that you could count on mentor to everybody else somebody that you that you knew was going to going to have your back and if you needed something if you needed a conversation, if you got in trouble, Joe weekly would always be there for you, but he really gave us the ability and the avenue to play because we had to have gyms that were that stayed open and places to go or we never would have developed into the players that we are were actually you probably still play though. I don't need Reggie, please my replacement. I don't really a man. I got a new here. I got a I got a newly last year. So I'm good. Yeah, I'm a I'm all gone bonic now boy. Unless you listen to the showtime with Coupe. We got Reggie Theus here a couple more questions ready for you. And I'm gonna let you go. Cuz I know you're a busy man. It's too late to play golf. So I know you got family duties to do. What do you think of that and we talked about this a little bit now today's NBA. Yeah. Today's NBA is different Coop. It's it's it's difficult analytics has changed. Everything analog is great, but I don't need analytics to tell me what my eyes already can see, you know, I like analytics because it gives you numbers to back up what you're talking about because you can always go to the book. You can always go to numbers and you can spew out numbers and facts that go along with the conversation that you're trying to have with any of your players you as a coach me as a coach and just in general defensively, I think that today's I don't like the way they play defense. I don't like all the switching Biggs, you know, think about it. Like if a sinner tried to guard you there's no way a sinner can guard me, you know, I get a good shot off of them every single time. But when they took the physicality out of a game, they they took away a lot of they took away a lot of competitiveness. That was the physical the physical part in the physical competitiveness of the game. I don't understand why there's no more posts that players. I can't understand that. We we averaged over a hundred points a game back in the day and they said no more mid-range shots. Everything is a layup or three and you know, it's just a weird. It's a weird sense, but I'll tell you this Mike that there's a a whole two generations of players of kids. I should say that have grown up and don't know what old school basketball is all about have no concept no understand. Getting all the guys you've named these kids today have never seen play. So they're growing up understanding that the game is played the way they see it today. So it's accepted and the NBA is thriving billions of dollars on the table. So no one's trying to hear about what we should do because it's a made-for-tv and you know, all I can say is that athletes are are much better athletes than we were but we were way more skilled than they are. I agree with that regular and I forgot to talk about this your coaching resume, very impressive kind of like along the lines of mine where you posting in college you coached in the pros you close to the D-League which is now the G League. Yeah, and we have a luxury of them in the big three together. How about that? That's a coupe. I would say that the coaching in the big three is is like just being dead. Mr. Personality you get to sit back and say a few things here and there and just try to stay out of the way. All right, it's it's a great gig though your fruitless your froze dead lose your no you froze are still here. I got tornado sirens going off here guys, but thank you so much for a G. I appreciate it man. It was it was great talking to you and he'll call you too. So I thank you very much any time and if anything else comes up you want to talk just just holler. Thank you. Appreciate that very much. Okay, we have an open invitation. All right, Reggie be well man will take care. So seriously, anything else comes up. Let me know. Thank you will do.

I'm trying I've been trying to really focus on highlighting black businesses which we have a ton up here in Vegas, so we're still able to go and do those things, but we have to wear masks. Social distance in the live shot. or in the in the packages, which is so strange, man, but. We're still trying to do what we do, but with the corona rule within the corona rules. And it's it's not easy at different, but it works. Making it work. You Plan Cow Irvine. Yeah well UC IRVINE UC Irvine. Want the wmba yeah. Something you wanted to do? Go Wise, or did you WANNA? Do it. Because of your father was. WNBA was a very. It was a very short-lived goal of mine. An elementary school you know and you kind of have the. Really to call. Not impossible dreams, you know nothing is impossible, but they're WNBA was certainly a big dream of mine growing up just because I love basketball. I want to do this forever. That I can realize. There were other things to do to, and and that's kind of where. Broadcast Journalism Tamraz Like I. Love to write I love to. I love people. I love the community I loved entertainment for all of that. The mind is broadcast journalism so. So yeah. Dream, that was very short lived, but I had home much respect. For, for the players and I watched him and I'm like I. WanNa play? A is okay I do We're not that far in age but I so I'm sure you remember the early days of the WNBA commercials on NBC. The Houston comments and then New York Liberty. Going out of daily scar dominated. You remember about the early. I don't remember much. I don't remember much I just remember. Lisa Lesley! I remember looking at her like how? She's. She's beautiful. She's feminine, but she's a beast and she works hard. She was just that. This very versatile. Athlete Versatile Woman that I really admired and that's what I love to see. In the WNBA and I and I see that more and more I evolved, nothing grows and I love it. That's factors like live. Is it live live cameras? You play through the eighth. Is Las Vegas my her a lot for her ability and. Just, as a player and the woman. Could be right on our website did. Excuse me talking all things WNBA. Vegas News in the latest on the mask fashions You Know Your Dad Reggie Basically are so uncommon uncommon. Hot Best Show. Do you actually mean member? I was actually there. Aren't that every you know lack. Forget what well it came on. Saturdays I can't remember. I can't remember if we actually shot on weekends. I can't remember what day of the week it was, but I would be on that with them all the time. Watching them record watching them do it. It was fun It was good, but. Did. You feel like you play for during high school. No I did not. I I was so young. I was so young, but it's funny that. Is Funny though. We had. We had a few actors Anthony Anderson. You know on their as a as a young dude before he really made a big, so it's fun to watch. How his life and his career progressed. What was what was he like in the early days? shoe he was really he was really nice, really nice, and he just he was always joking. Oh It's just fun. Just the guy I wouldn't have anymore tells about that. Obviously, I was so young. Chilly hanging out with them. Do you remember? Episodes where guys like Kobe Bryant Kinloss at grant, Hill and Jason Kidd no I wish I did I wish I did I can't even? I was there for that so but when know when those videos started to research that. recently after after he passed, I was just. I was just full of try like. Thank God that is so cool. That's so cool and he said something he'll never forget. Yeah, he actually really really loves Kobe. and they had they had a relationship so so I just think that's really special for my dad. You know that kind of. Did you feel like that. Show was Kinda fast forward were rather ahead of his time in the sense that you had one girl on the boys basketball team. Yeah, actually nothing of what I guess I never thought about that. I was pretty progressive. Progressive. Even though we don't see that now. I think that women are proving themselves to be. You know just go to our better. Do not there, so you know maybe one day we mostly code team, but. I don't know that'll happen. Anytime soon. I used to candace. Parker was going to be the first. You had. Actually. That's a fair thought. She was that she that big star he knows, has that. Think or Brittany griner or They. Can you know all these people who who just have proven themselves time and time again? To be like troopers. I know God guys will probably underestimates though and they get. Stuck close.

With them, Compassionate with passion with the humor and style like just be yourself fun with it. Take you seriously. That's what I did. You were on. Like My. well. Yes. And I and I love I love when that shocks and surprises people when they at home or anything on the couch, watching like my. Some random channel and they're like Yo is that rocky? Receive A. Video or picture? So one. Of the most. Place that someone has seen in public and they realize that resume from like Mike. Oh? Oh No, I haven't got like a random person recognizing from Mike Mike not. No, no, no, no. No first of all I was thirteen. Hopefully I've grown up a little bit and would be back. Well shoot. I do pretty much the same, but. But you know. That's that's kind of a stretch. They're not gonNA recognize you from My. Text messages, but I get Texas people. I know from people I know you know they they just don't know. It's freaks out. Your old up. You were talking. When they realized it. Is Interesting because you talked about Hang Kong you don't remember certain things, but you were grown enough at thirteen. Remember the set of like Mike. Remember that. It was fun. I. Would you know I was a student? Actor the show I have to do. Well, I'm reading was on what they do I've had to be in study hall with Bowel. This little row we had a little people. Everybody was doing their work with their tutor or reading your book. I remember I was reading this basketball. Hoop, life or something? Something you asked me about it and mind you. I had. Get crushed although during this time of my life. So. A thirteen year old. In Study, Hall and movie with. Her her teen crush, who came up her knee pads by the way. Very. Cool very cool. My Dad was the basketball consulting on the movie so. Yeah. It's a family. Yeah I was also only like one team, so let's not like I was. Oh. That's one seen many works in. Short. Saying, you know it was. It was a fun one day. I remember your dad doing sideline reporting, and like interviews with coaches. One TNT MTV ass before before changing and Ernie Chapel were born with some on it before Kenny and chat and trial on what he what he did. Something up, but I remember him doing some reporting. What the take! From him to apply to what you're doing now. Scooby and I remember I remember going sometimes to work with him, and I would just sit and watch him. Do It It was just one of those for me as young as a young kid. I'm not watching thinking like. Oh I'm going to be doing that one day I was just kind of watching watching him and off. But. I years went on as I realized. That's what I WANNA. Do you know his his thing was always you? You have to be a great listener. Rock gotta be a great listener. and And he was always. He's always really often taken himself, so I took that from him as well. You know. We neither one of US having. News Voice. And you know those guys love sports. Don't usually have that useless. But yeah, so I was I would say that he killed his day. Let's just listen. And the work. Obviously, the work ethic comes from him to watching him. Continue to reinvention over the years really inspires inspired me so the day Yeah! Sizes doubt inspired to. Who Broadcasting Buyers! I mean we can. We can go ahead and say Oprah. Can Go and say over the course of. But also guys black. Guys like Kevin Frazier who? Fired diversity. Again there goes that word. And who else have? There's so many so many that I take away from? who I who I just said fire been in the game for so long you continue to find their place in the find their space and their voice. who continue to reinvent and and keep going even when. You when you know they, they might lose a game, or or they might might have to leave a Gig, but you know look time later. You see them back on air, so it's. It's just that being when you when you really loved them. When you really love what you do, you keep telling. You Roll with the punches and I've seen so many. So many broadcasters do that over the years so. Obviously, like arrive bequest to. I i. Tell You man you just if it's like locking something. But locking everything that's. Making it your taking. It works review and creating higher. I like empire masks. Lifestyle basketball. Think. We've pretty much covered everything. Oh and any time so.

"These days hiring can be challenging. Monica starks could relate she was having a tough time filling a pivotal role under construction company GS group. So she switched to Ziprecruiter and today you can try it for free at ZIPRECRUITER DOT com slash Max five minutes after posting ziprecruiter center the best candidate and she hired him the next day. It's no wonder four out of five employers who post on Ziprecruiter get a quality candidate within the first day and right now you can try it for free at Ziprecruiter dot com slash Max that's ziprecruiter dot com slash NASA. Mexico show the PODCAST. and. Like thank God, for the NBA. This bubble with zero Cova cases by the Way University of Alabama loan about like college football the big tanner they gonNA, play. All the stuff. University of Alabama two or three days ago had over twelve hundred covert cases. The big ten knows of at least ten players ten student athletes who have a very rare heart condition. That that has been found to be correlated with covert. The NBA has zero covert cases. They're playing the playoffs right now. They got through. Their season eighty, two game season became a lot of teams seventy, two, seventy, three games. But the main thing is they got the local TV money to fully vested fully kick in by playing enough of their regular season games. Now, we're in the playoffs and what a playoffs. The one thing about the NBA is since the better team almost always wins the nature of basketball fewer players on the court than Footballer Baseball. You can run your your place through your best players in crunch time all that stuff it's not even like one in done like March madness you have a best of seven in a game like basketball the champions going to be crowned correctly. You're almost always going to get that, right. But that's also a problem. Don't we want a little randomness injected into sports championships. It's about finding out who the best is on the field of plate. No, it's not really the drama of Sports. You want some kind of unpredictability and there isn't a lot in the NBA and this season solves it. The fact that there are no that they're always on a neutral site, there's no travel no home, no road, the team with the better record doesn't have that home court like they normally do and just weird stuff with. The stoppage of play and then the restart. We thought we'd get some kind of funky results and so far. Are you kidding me in the first round AH game seven like the one we had last night I know it was sloppy. I'm going to get to that in a second if you're sitting there watching that game complaining that it's sloppy. Come on. Rockets Thunder with Westbrook and Chris Paul treated for each other in a game seven right now. This is so good. I can't take it. Okay. Let me let me start with. Last night. Dot of Mitchell's team lost Utah Jazz lost. And Mike Conley miss the last shot, but he had a good look and it was. Down and out like it was it went in and out. They said halfway down, it didn't go halfway down a quarter away a third way down. But like he could have just as easily hit that shot, it looked like to me. And then they win and why would they have one? Because look the whole game both teams the star players on both teams, Jamal Marie Donovan Mitchell. We're playing clearly on very tired legs. And you could see like most of the teams, there are just some ugly shooting, but a lot of the stuff was short. Okay on that heave. If anything it was a little strong but. You saw guys missing short because their legs are tired of course, game seven and. A very hard fought series. Donovan Mitchell couldn't get it going in the first half and they're obviously paying special defensive attention. Him Don't let that guy beat you go bear was excellently but. What could he do? What does it great player do he couldn't affect the game on the offensive end in the first half he decided. and. This hasn't happened for a lot of this series on a play defense on Jamal Murray. GimMe a tough assignment, and you couldn't have played better defense than he played. On tired legs and then in the third quarter and he's still wasn't feeling offensively you could see it. That is an example of a dude willing his team into the game. Donovan Mitchell willed his team into the game offensively even though he didn't have it offensively. By Hook or by Crook. He could see the shot wasn't falling. He had to get to the paint and even the way he got to the pain. Okay. That moves not working that. Well, let's try this. He will his team don't forget their downloads at fifteen. It was about to be. Get. rolled. Not on the Donovan Mitchell teams not getting rolled in a game seven. It's not happening. He will them back into the game in the third quarter. And Conley shocked goes in. We're having a different conversation today the jazz are going forward. Donovan Mitchell is being rewarded with a maximum con Max contract. and. He deserves every penny and then some. This is a truly great player. I saw greatness from Donovan Mitchell on a night when he didn't have it and his team lost a game seven I saw real greatness there. Eight Eight, eight, say ESPN, eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six. Here's dot of Mitchell after the game. Gary, jumped out. Spun I didn't know where he was he made a play and then. Mike, may they missed a lamp and my came down and? Look good man but. Sometimes it's just the way it works. This is just the beginning and. I'm ready to go shopping in right now, but this is just the beginning. and. He gets the ball poked away from behind. You know at the end of that game and what a blunder that would have been right what a what a miserable way to end. But then Jamal Moore who remember he had had a stroke had this I I remember on twitter. Either Ninety two or ninety three points over two games. Jamal Murray without a turnover. A minute. You're dropping almost a hundred points over two games without a turnover. On. Real And by the way. Jamal Murray may have looked not as great as he really is because Yokich is so good. At, getting the team into the offense in every time, you got a big white guy who's not that fast but it's a really good passer and really good offensively people compare him to Larry Bird. A bird was a forward by the way a small forward and power forward who was also not exactly point guard but he played point a lot of times you get the Celtics into their offense Dennis? Johnson Back, in the day and Yokich was used that way a Lotta Times. He would get the team into the offense. But what that did just because he could do that was take the ball out of Jamal Murray's hands, and so my assumption was yeah. But yokich is the better player. No, he's not Jomo is a better player which is shocking to me because I think Yokich is a close to an MVP level player but so is Jamal Murray. And yet, he also made a blunder he to made a blunder coming away with that ball. The Donovan Mitchell turned over. Do Dribble out the clock. And I remember there was a game I remember this season last season. I don't remember who's in the play center I just remember Jamal Murray being roundly criticized at a certain point four dribbling out the clock. And they lost. Denver lost the game maybe that was on his mind. Dribble out the clock. What's going to happen at worst value you're up to you're going to the line. If you hit one free throw you ain't losing and regulation, and if you hit to the Games over. And even if you don't need a either you're probably going to win the game. As it was, he gave them a real good chance a really good chance to win that game and is very lucky. Calmly shot go down. Conley too by the way, he was brought in to make the difference and he's one of my favorite players. He's like if you can't have Chris Paul as your point guard doing the things Chris Paul does. Calmly as Chris, Paul? Light. But who has been very light this year he has not been good for that team and maybe his presence took the ball out of Donna Mitchell hand, the team I think seem to. Operate better was organized better with Donovan Mitchell with the ball in his hands and this happens by the way you know maybe with the Celtics to as much as I think the loss of Gordon Hayward is a big deal. It puts the ball in Marcus smart's hands a little bit more than and Marcus, smart absorbs those minutes and he came up big. We're to get to that too. There's so much to get into. Anyway. Here's Jamal Murray after the game. I. If, we lost, the game. On A.. COOL WHO Michael. Michael must've Deshaun I was looking at looking at the ball light man is this goes in. Be Heartbroken but. I never been so happy to play so bad. The my life I was. Messed up with so many different ways offense difference by this team. How today? Off My coaches staff and everybody with me. So we got. We got the job done. And let me say something about. Tim Bradley, who's a future hall of fame boxer who works for ESPN broadcaster for ESPN. Now you see him a maximum boxing espn two Fridays at five. PM Although this week at this Friday at eleven PM special time. Tim Bradley I used to love to interview and I was working for HBO and I would faceoffs and different interviews with fighters because that dude was so honest. Like Tim Bradley I thought He'd and deserve the decision against Pacquiao on the first phase he thought he did and if he thought he did believe me he really does think he did not just saying that Bradley never lied on anything because when you put it there guys more talented than Tim. And a lot of guys thought they wanted to win they fought, Tim. Bradley they figured out what really wanting to what needing to win was about the amount of preparation he put in. So, when you are honest with yourself and work that hard, there's no, there's no like why front. Ten Wooden Front. Tim told me after the provider cough fight he couldn't. He was slurring his speech for a month. He talked about fear he talked about the kind of. At crosses mind you know like the kind of damage he's doing he wants to get out of the game and he was a warrior because when you are about it, you don't have to front you don't have to puff yourself up. Your Real Jamal Murray's real. He messed up just owned it and he can listen he can laugh about it now because they won. If you lost them sure. He wouldn't be joking about it, but he's still be telling the truth. What Jamal Murray Donovan Mitchell have to hide they leave it all out on the floor even on a night where they don't have it eighty eight say espn eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six, straight talk wireless everything for only at Walmart. And now Ryan Hollins joins us on the. Shell Pennzoil performance line. Brian do their. Match, what is going on brother how you been man? We finally got you back on radio man, and if we don't have you running your mouth enough money I, take bad a listen. How dare you let me just tell me take me through your playoff highlights all eight seconds left I'm going to start with the first one. That's not true. Listen Ryan. Hollins is a great athlete. A great due to a true friend loves me some Ryan, Holland's however he was the only NBA player who needed a press pass to get into the huddle I think back in the day the doctors to let you in the huddle with with the clippers where you allowed in or did you have to show id? How does that work? Man I put in work baby. Work Eleven years. Altogether Ten Years my eleven year was overseeing. So I'll say eleven professional ten in the NBA. But. Now let me ask you something. You fool why didn't you learn how to shoot a three your athletic. You could play defense if you just would bombed from three, you'd still be in the NBA. What's up Brian Matt? Honest to God truth and this is the way that the NBA's really transformed. Early in my career I was on the perimeter shooting threes trying to cross over time do off all this. You know it's amazing stuff in every coach ever had would or assistant will pull you aside and go. Over there doing that you're never going to do that. You're never going to do that. Why you why? Yogi? Even over they're wasting your time enemy, you would get I mean you would get like scorched as a young big tax changed working on out of out on your game outside the perimeter. Did you shoot free throws I I honestly don't off top my head did use shoot free throws well. Yeah I. Have a nice touch. I have a nice touch but I was you know when in back when I come league in two thousand and six everything was mid range mid range mid range because we see Michael. Jordan Kobe. Bryant. You develop your mid range or you know like PJ Brown was one of the ideal big. You know those guys were the ones that were telling you. Hey. That's that's mal your game after those guys hold up right now you're affect timeout. You said you had a nice touch you shot sixty five percent from the line for your career that for a seven footer, it's not the worst but come on dude that are you saying it's because you didn't get enough touches. What do you mean you had a nice touch sixty five percents on the line. No I can I can shoot my moment listened I have my moments I can shoot I'm not I'm not A. Banking the shooting the ball off the backboard type shooter I have I have touched there's a reality and when you think about guys like the Andre Jordan or any of those guys when you only touch the bat when the first time you touch the basketball is the rebounded slam, dunk it or shoot a free throw your free throws always. Jit. By the way, even for shooters, if there are some shooters just pure, it doesn't matter how often they shoot it. It's going in but a lot of. Guys in the League because they can shoot two three and play defense they need touches. If they don't get touches. They're not going to shoot at the same way. That's real now meantime, speaking of touches. Do. Did you see what these two young guys put the kind of show that Donovan Mitchell and Mary just put on in the first round. And by the way I keep bringing it up as as the only real rivalry in the NBA Ryan and people started bring about college I'm like you're right and on the broadcast last night what about highschool they've been going at it they've been going like competing against each other really since they were teenagers through every level of basketball now on the highest level in the playoffs both around the same age both more or less performing the same role for their teams and in game seven. Donovan. Mitchell. was playing defense on joe-marie Diem Up. And the fact that they put on a show for the ages like would you talk about the all time? Great playoff matchups in terms of what individuals did against one another. No one's ever had scored that many forty and fifty games against each other two players I. I'm like I'm I'm speechless about what what more can you say about these guys? Max I had to eat humble pie. When it came to that series I was laughing I was like this isn't even worth watching I I was I was beside myself but in all reality, honestly that's one of the greatest playoff first round series that we've ever seen I agree imacs you're you remember this the only thing I think comparable if you think back to the to. The Nets and the Celtics Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker they were the net and I think they were I mean it was twenty thirty point comebacks that was the last super exciting series that I remember. But but the did you read Ryan the differences ai in one at at one year. But the difference is that in this series, these two guys were having historically great performances. In over two games, Jamal Marie at one point had almost one hundred points with zero turnovers, two games in the playoffs in two games, and by the way he's facing a team. Who Centre go bare is a shot changing kind of presence on the floor and in two games. One hundred points, turnovers like I. Don't know if there has been a series where the two star players right up until game seven there was a fall off in game seven. It's true but even then Donovan Mitchell willed his team back into it in the third quarter offensively Donald Mitchell deed up Jamal Murray like. Can you I can't think of it like you gotta go back to like bird and magic. When you saw two guys who arrivals in college turn pro around the same time go at it, and obviously for them, it's in the finals do more or less the same thing for their teams. I this has a chance to be an all time. Great Rivalry, RYAN No it does and Matt. From a basketball standpoint, it was the perfect storm. Why do I say that for one they played in the bubble in the bubble, it's a shoot as Jim because of the depth perception because you can see a walk closer versus and background it much friendlier to the shooter. Do those are both traditional big men on either side which means what in the pick and roll you don't switch in in Yokich the joker and and the the the. Eiffel Tower, what what do they call it? What do they call where the Eiffel Tower they're in a drought? So when you bid died doesn't want to switch and you play traditional coverage. You allow the guards to have a field day in the game plan, which normally work against Jamal from from an opposing team standpoint, the game plan is make them all Murray, go out and score fifty points. No one else who's going to touch the ball. Let's see if you can beat you. He found a way to beat you and that will be the growth that you know Mike Malone ask for and I played for Mike Malone and Mike Malone if you look back historically. You gotta give them a lot of credit right now he's always pushed Jamal Murray. So this point Max. where he said Hey I need you to be great I need you to be better and he calls it how he sees it Mike Disgrace sooner. You always like that in the locker room was like we didn't. We didn't play that well or you didn't show up Jamal Jamal Murray took it to heart man and he showed up in a major way a major love that. Analysis. So two reasons we saw like look any era where you see amazing things happen is because the era is conducive circumstances, the environments conducive for those kind of performances. So like in baseball when I was a kid people used to tell the other no hitters like you know Lou Gehrig Babe Ruth around today look at those numbers. Yeah. Right. Because they played in an era where you could put up those numbers in the seventies and eighties you couldn't right. But then later on. It's the same thing here. It's not that which kid is that Ryan Is Man. This is just oh my God this e.. This is my little bullied man. She didn't. WanNa hear. Ryan Hollins and my kids have played together and everything is the nicest family but anyway. Ryan these guys are able to do historical things with not only because they are great but the circumstances allowed it to happen and you're saying those circumstances are better depth perception because you're in a bubble without the depth issue of the crowd number one and number two because of the trump to more traditional bigs than is common in this era, there's no switching and when that happens. The guards especially, if they're talented can have a field day that's your analysis as to why these two great young players were able to put up historically amazing numbers I mean, obviously, it starts with their talent and they're willing everything but those were the that was the environment. Those were the circumstances that allowed it to happen. Ryan Holland's is the host of the opinionated seven footers podcast. Ryan before I. Let you go. Your Boy James. Harden has had a great series and most vocal critic in the national press in terms of hey he's been a choker in his in the playoffs in his career like MVP regular season falls down to an all star in the playoffs a good player. But not what he is normally he's changed every year he's gotten a little closer to changing my mind I e worked on his defense then he started having more. Than bed still felt he choked and big moments though this year he's been fantastic in the first round. Ryan. Who is this biggest for right now is at James Harden is it Russell Westbrook is a Dantonio whose job is apparently on the line according to Stephen a Smith is is it Chris Paul? Who is this? Is it Darrow Maurice Sam Prestige who is this game seven biggest for tonight This is all about James Harden. Here's here's the fact of the matter hairs the honest to God truth we have we have never looked at Darul Maury we have never looked at Mike Dan Tony instead man you you guys are are potentially one of the greatest of you could be the one of the greatest. Of Man you're going to go down in History Dad Tony for for being one of the great we've never felt that way. There's never been that conversation when you look at James Harden Ira Maury but yeah. When you look at James Harden Max. Am I wrong you you say man, this guy could be the greatest scored history. He's unguardable. Let me tell you said brother if he doesn't show up if he doesn't show up ready to play, this is going to be one of the most stork meltdowns that we have ever seen the last game and I'll look look man I. Love Me Some James James Harden didn't even wants a basketball. He he had wanted to fight for it. No was not fight. Eight bats we me and you both covered La love some Kobe Bryant love Kobe or Think about when teams and every team did it. You denied Koby you tried to make them work. You try to you try to get physical with him about Kobe. Chasing the bathroom the basketball dig it's not a matter that met Metta World Peace Ron test sometimes had to hit the big shot but that's not because Kobe didn't want the ball colby never shirk that responsibility and James Harden even though Westbrook's number was called James Harden was not fighting hard to get open that is a legitimate criticism.

I called Vander Holyfield Vander Holly Field for like the first five years of his career I don't know what it is I. Think I inherited it. Listened to my parents call him. Ronald Regan. And I will say that name as Reagan. What's the matter with you can't see can't remember that it's like efforts everywhere you look. So I did it with us and I always forget I know it's not right but I forget away wh what do they call them Thais But I'm not sure if they're saying ice or Thais. I. DuNNo. Whatever he's good. He's a good defensive player. He's just a player period. And that's the thing about the Celtics you think of them. As you know, sometimes, people try to promote a player into a big three like. Like the Lakers their big three of Lebron and ad and Kyle Kuzma. No way their big three of one of the three greatest players who ever lived. One of the handful of greatest power forwards who ever lived. And a below average starter. Why? What? No? That's not a big three. It's a big two and a guy. Even. Miami who had a religion big three? Lebron. And Dwayne Wade. Were MVP level players, and Chris. Bosh. WHO's become underrated. He's Great Hall of Famer. Chris Bosh was not quite an MVP level players. There's an all star. Even an all star plus every year, not quite an MVP. The Celtics don't have because tatum still young. The Celtics don't have a and he made a couple of mental errors at the end of the game. The Celtics don't have a big three with an MVP candidate unless tatum blossoms into that throughout these playoffs and he has the chance to has that kind of ability but they do have legitimately a big four in the sense that they have four. All Star caliber players in their starting lineup four of them. When Gordon Hayward is healthy if he's not still all star caliber, he certainly above average starter. To be a starter isn't above average player because there are more than five players on the team more than ten players on the team. If you're in the starting lineup, you've probably above average I'm talking about by the standards of a starting player Gordon Hayward is above average. Jaylen Brown is above average. Kemba Walker clearly and Jason Tatum. That's four. Times above average he may not quite be on their level offense WLI. But he's not just an average frontcourt player. He's above average that's five now Gordon Hayward goes down and of the offense of special pieces. Now, you're down to three and none of them are MVP level players yet. So it's like maybe they can't get it done. Oh Yeah. Marcus smart steps up. And in crunch time, he played like an all star didn't he? Hears Marcus Smart. By the way for the undefeated playoff Celtics, the Celtics and the heat they have yet to lose in the playoffs. Here's Marcus smart after the game. My teammates believe this coaches staff this team organization believe him and you know coming in before hit that I wanna get on. My team is just telling me we need a big play from come out and and that's what it did. They kept leaving me open couple shops in and out on new they're gonNA start. Fall. Just keeps you. Need someone to play defense on the other teams best offensive player. Guy To hit a big shot with Marcus smart. Remember when the Lakers won a meaningless game against the Celtics because it was a rivalry game and I was on la. Radio going. Why did you win that game? You could draft Marcus smart that Julius randle. But the Celtics, got Marcus smart and the Lakers had Julius randle and Julius randle has bounced around. He can do some things but marcus smart is the part of team right now, an important part of a team that can win a championship. Now, the answer to the question I t's before the break can the Celtics win at all the answer is yes and they're getting Gordon Hayward back if they progress past this round. Yes. The Celtics are capable of winning a championship this year and so are the heat. It's one of the most interesting. Playoffs like postseasons that I can remember in my lifetime watching the NBA. This thing is up for grabs. The Max Kellerman show the podcast. Cowardly show yes. Radio ESPN news yet APP and Siriusxm Channel Eighty on your smart speaker. Reach us at eight say ESPN, that's Eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six, and the Max Kellerman show is presented by progressive insurance or guest join us on the Shell Pennzoil performance line. Get right down to it. We got you. Let me tell you what I think. No doubt. You. Feel myself I love this song. I you teased it. Now we want to know does Alvin Kamara who held. Say Just unexcused absences. The previous few days does he deserved McCaffrey or Derrick Henry tight money. No and those are two of the only running back. Like. That's not how you play. NASA. He. Not as good as those guys but but he's a special offensive weapon and even though most teams that give running backs, big deals live to regret it whether it's Todd Gurley being retained by the rams whereas Levy on. The jets a free agent. The fact is there should be some special exemption in the in the in the in the in the salary cap for running backs to get. So messed up, I? It's so messed up what happened then but. You can't pay them big money. However, Camara has a of leverage right now because this is a team could win the Super Bowl right now and he is a dynamic piece in in their offense. So they're going to have to pay a premium over what they'd like to give him at this moment. I believe what's next war? Yeah really. Well, like you said, running backs all right Keanu reeves he turns fifty six today. Canneries is the best nine acting actor. He's the goat. Low that's WHO's on that list I. Think you're right. He can carry a movie even though we can act who else does. Who did that you know who did that on? TV. Seinfeld. Did that. Seinfeld. Couldn't act and that was kind of the GAG. It's sort of what made him funny. On the show, but you're right Kiana reeves. Point break to like the Matrix it's not like he ever. He. Stuff yet John. Wick is so much fun. HE WAS IN COPPOLA'S DRACULA? And Land Stoker's you would think if I can act on what ruins in Keanu reeves now. If. Anything is better. It's true. I think he is. He's the best non actor actor. Let's include Schwarzenegger belongs in there too. Patrick mahomes better. Get a pre nup. I mean, this is common sense. He's got how many hundreds and hundreds of millions now. Doubt. Keep forgetting say no doubt in Nacion. Yup Yup Yup. I last one before callers nuggets will challenge the clippers. Nas Son. I re tweeted a Shea Serano today. I'm going to read it because I think it's very funny and the comments are also very funny actually. But where what is it re tweeted the stink a man enters a room it's completely dark. He clicks lights on Koa Leonard is sitting in a chair in the middle of the room. He's wide awake, and this is all done stage directions in brackets. The man hands quiet folder opens it. There's only one thing in there. It's a picture of Jamal Murray. Kawhi. Okay Could, live got the mission statement. Raj Shutdown Jamal Murray got it cyborgs beyond that kid now don't met look. You're running with Jamal. Murray is the real deal, but Kawai is the big dog in the NBA No one wants it with Kawhi who wants it with Lebron started showing it that he wanted he wanted it with Kawhi later in the season, and then in the bubble reopen before the playoffs let's see what happens in the playoffs. That's why time. Kawai, Lebron did this to it took him a while to get there but he's done this to as great as Lebron normally is. When it matters most, he gets better. That's the highest level of clutch play like a lot of times guys like Derek jeter or Kobe Bryant Tom Brady get extra credit for being clutched just because they stay the same guy in the clutch situations and they're so great that they look clutch. But do they elevate clutch situations now they're the same guy. Fernando Valenzuela. Curt Schilling. Sandy Colfax Michael Jordan Mariano Rivera. Those guys by the way Tom Brady as his career went on in the second half of his career. Brady became a guy like this. When it mattered most they actually elevated actually got better, but it's hardest to get better when you're already just about the best. Whoever did it? Like Michael Jordan or Rivera. That's what Lebron did in the second half of his career he gets eat. He's already at the highest possible level he gets even better when it matters most. But guys Kawais done that his whole career he didn't have to grow into that rule whenever the pressure's been on Kawai raises that level from wherever it is. Now it's a little easier to raise the level when you're not operate that's the best player we've seen since Michael Jordan he got even better know that hasn't been Kawai. So it's a little easier because you've got more room to improve there when you're not already at the upper limits of greatness. But. At this point and Lebron career coach is career during the regular season, they have roughly equivalent value. And what could why has shown throughout his career is when you need it most he gets even better we'll Lebron be able to match them when they meet. Because I expect they will meet. California on the Max Kellerman show ESPN radio. APEC Amax doing long time listener man I I. Go back to you Marcellus Wiley back in the day. Twenty seconds and they're gonNA cut us off. All right. All right real quick. There was upset somehow and it was either okay or Houston who gets clippers the harder problem? Maybe, Houston just because I think they have a higher ceiling.

Ibm Let's put smart to work visit. Ibm DOT COM SLASH FLEXIBLE. These sporting live on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. Here's Jeremy Schaap jury. Tarquini wasn't just one of the best coaches in college basketball. He was one of the most compelling and he was certainly one of the most controversial he eventually would be selected for the Basketball Hall of fame. He died five years ago and now a new book has been written rebel with a cause the true story of Jerry Tarr Canaan written by his son Danny who also of course played for his father. Unlv Danny thanks so much for being with us here. Well thank you for having me on. I was not only play from. I was as ballboy. I was an assistant coach for him and I was actually much matter so I thought that I would be the person with the best information that That craigslist book. I can't imagine that anyone else would be better. But let's start with The title rebel with a cause the true story of Jerry Tarquini. That suggests that there is a false story or false narrative about your father out there. What is that narrative well? My father's current interviewed him on a few occasions. You understand that. There was a lot of stories written about him and most of it wasn't true and Some people the people that actually have you got to know. The program got till the players. You had a pretty good understanding of what was going on. But there are so many other stories that were written just perception. And maybe people's impression from what they heard. What I did was my mother had scrapbooks from all of my fathers seasons that he coached I so I use those scrapbooks to go back and go to all seasons I have all the documentation from the NC toy not only a court documents but their investigation notes and so forth was able to put together the factual basis. And all. That as I mentioned I lived and breathe in was a part of much of my father's career in a number of other areas and then I heard the different stories. My father had cold funny. Stories of is recruiting Instance stories and other coaches recruiting stories. I try to put all that in the book. I think the the readers will find that really interesting and funny and also wanted to get my father sense of humor out there. He was really acquitted. Person had some great one liners. Some of them have been made public others. He had told us as a family. And I put all that in the book speaking Danny Tarquini in about his new book about his father. The legendary coach Basketball Hall of Famer Jerry Tarr Canaan. The book is titled Rebel with a Cause The true story of Jerry Tarquini and it has just been published five years after Jerry Tarr Kanaan's death the legendary career at Long Beach State a specially unlv also at Fresno. Danny this is a broad question. But how would you describe your father to someone who never met him but only saw him on TV? The thing that most people don't know about my father was that he was just really great people person and he was that weight with people across all different spectrums of life. He was able to relate with an motivate and bring together the poor inner city black kids that were donated college basketball at that time. Like no other coach He was able to really get along with a great relationship with his fellow coaches and colleagues which many coaches could and then you also was able to relate with the boosters and others that were involved in a big part of the program and so forth he was he just understood how people were he would fight with people he he understood when did just let them give their speech a perfect example would be you put him in a bar. You let him tell stories about Basketball and and and his career and he'll be the happiest guy on there. He's told which seen him where he's been in. The Bar and a fan will come to coach. Why didn't you get the ball over Larry Johnson and and he would have done better about one that game and my dad will sit there and say is that right. That's a great point. The Guy will go home and tell girl clinico coach. Talk what to do and take credit for I. I gotta say the teams you're in. This is far from unique opinion. But the teams That your father coach. Unlv particularly in the last two years the nineteen eighties in the first few years of the nineteen nineties a team that won a national championship and then lost the following year and rematch with Duke might still be considered the most talented college basketball team ever put together. When you agree. Well you know I. It depends what you call talent if you look at the end of digital players that are on that team. They don't compare to say that one's Kentucky when they had all those first round picks and you look at the NBA careers if somebody other teams heck dukes Players that beat us that you're much better NBA clears than the ones that UNLV. Well what the UNLV was able to do. Was they put to get players that had spread so abilities and they emphasizes abilities and play together as a team for example. Larry John was great. Rebound they're great passes the great key player. And that's what he specialized Anderson Hunt was a great shooter. Greg Anthony was a great ball handler. Passer and defensive. They all specialize. My father was able to bring together these different talents. They CA- Cohesive Unit. And then they got them to play hard in the near the team that country. And if you're looking at were the best team well. They certainly could competed with any other team. History called basketball whether they went on common. Certainly would have been competitive. Oh I think about those teams augment and hunt and Anthony and Larry Johnson and accolades and scurry. They were fun to watch too. Were speaking with Danny Arcane. About his new book rebel with a cause the true story of Jerry Tarquini in his legendary father. Kirby let me mention about your talk. Everybody knows about the early nineties teams and how great they were. Probably the most entertaining team in History College basketball would have been the late seventies teams that. Unlv they averaged one hundred ten point six points a game one year and one hundred eight the next year and they did it without the three point line or the sock clock and they did it with pressure full court defense and raise the ball up the court again. Shots off Reggie. Theus was a star on. That team had a great NBA career and they had a bunch of other good players but imagine squander kind of points and playing that fast Before the clock in three point line it was really amazing. Rebel fan and there were a lot of people. Let's let's face it. Who diminished your father as a coach who said Oh he was one of these guys are just rolled out the ball but that was of course far from the case sure. When my dad first started his career he was his own coach. One to two zone and they in the third year long division want to before he got there so in three years as division one coach she takes. Long Beach within two points of upset and UCLA. The instant toy tournament during their seven year run of the National Championships closest game. They ever had Jon Gruden after the game at several of their players. That was the best defense he'd ever seen the never been up against a defense like that before then he goes to. Unlv doesn't have the big players but he has a quick athletic players and he switches to pressure core man to man defense and the ball up the court and they become the best defense of full court team in the country then the years. They win a national championship. There are half court pressure. Defense with the AMOEBA and many people say was the greatest zone That was played during that time and So he was able to adapt require and he's a great great. Great Defensive Coach Goes K. Book the Pre face to the book except that my father is one of the greatest defensive coaches in the history of college basketball again. We're speaking with Danny Titanium Danny. Of course so when people think about your dad it's almost impossible to separate him from his fights with the NCAA and there was a time at which it seemed he was the NCAA's primary target. They went after him as we've already established time and again for years. What was the root of the conflict between Your father and the NCWA? That's a great point. I put that in the book the AFC TRAE hadn't officials education on my father's sixteen of his thirty one years coached more than half the time. And it all started in the late sixties early seventies. College basketball wasn't tremendously popular. They wouldn't sell out and citrate term games. They won't get it high ratings on TV. So the anti-trade protected the programs are real popular the Ucla the Kentucky Fathers Along these. He wrote some articles. Saying you know the answer. Trae go after the big boys. They're going after the smaller schools. Like Western Kentucky University of Kentucky breaks more rules at one day and Western Kentucky dozen here. Why GO AFTER THEM? Well the SE. Trey got upset you know. Here's this young coastal be knows about the Spartan off to the NC twice so they wrote a letter to the League. Commissioner saying who does talk being long. Beach is one of the big boys. We can come after him and they had to put. Long Beach on probation matter of fact Had to do it over again. He would have thanked him for put him up for Bachchan they fun friends with them and kept them as a friend as opposed to an enemy but he just he went after him. He didn't back down from him and he had fired an assistant coach who Went to the. Nfc tweet and made up a lie. Things that Talking in some of the other coaches we've talked about planning drugs and prostitute with an NC twenty investigator and it'd fury to the answer tweet documentation of metals and Letters that were sent between them saying we gotta get gotTa Run about a coaching. Because all these things that he was gonna pass rugs and and so forth and anyways it created just a horrendous adversarial relationship and my father did back down by OTA. He's beaten heritage. He knows how to persevere as most Armenians doing it was a never ending battle until the insecurity finally got him of course about it. You know they receive Danny Tarquin Ian about his new book about his father rebel with a cause the true story of Jerry Tarquini in one of the most legendary coaches in the annals of college basketball of course a hall of Famer and Danny. Before we let you go. I would be remiss if I did not ask you what your father would think about the current state of The NCAA of its relationship with college athletes. So much has changed the world we see now seems to be turning towards a place that your father was saying for a long time. We should be at where we should be getting to. And although he's no longer with us does it feel like get away. He's winning well. What he did was he exposed the NC twice false and and and what their actions back in the early seventies and people thought he was just saying it because he had been put on probation. Now other people are experiencing the same things. Go lies in this right the NCAA still not their organization. But most importantly the rules aren't there. They're the rulebook. My Dad always to put a organization like the NC Twain have five to ten rules to stop people from drinking major violation instead you got a rulebook full of scooping in philly violation many of what they found UNLV guilty of it and change later and made 'em legal because it was so ridiculous. I think the best thing. My father did incorrect. The NC twitter was to try to make it more fair for people to play intercollegiate sports without Basically treating the kids that are playing as second-class kid. These kids don't have anybody that comes. Thank you sixty on basketball's the dominated by intercity poor black kids that don't have the money to pay for extra things call such as going on a date or going to the movies with a girlfriend or even going out to lunch I thought it felt that was wrong. That those kids should be treated the same as the other. Call it student. He stood up for them. And that was part of the battles with the NC tway tar. Canes new book is rebel with a cause the true story of Jerry Tarquini in his father. It's a fascinating Story about one of the most compelling coaches not just in basketball but in sports period Danny thanks so much for joining us here on the Sporting. Well thank you.

Showtime From the Guy Who Wrote it | Showtime Lakers Podcast with Michael Cooper

"For that very brief sliver of time Magic Johnson was kind of sinister in l. a. where he was deemed as coach killer. He was calling the shots and it was a really seems like a very uncomfortable time I in Lakers history briefly. Talk about from the inside I know that it wasn't and I think what happened is that was the first players to go public and put it in the media I. think that's what made it so astounding. Hey, listen to comply with. The. By Laker teammates. France. Today, we have very special on the show. Perlman and he is the writer. Author. Of Soak Time. Some people call the controversial book that I call it an insightful. Look into the Lakers and what will the making him building showtime welcome Geoff like it'd be here I will get right into it and my first question for you about the showtime book and we're going to delve into that deep. Why aren't I on the cover? Oh, wait Michael Cooper. I'm GonNa tell you something I. I love that question because the cover makes no sense. So you have obviously magic you have Riley you've Kareem you've worthy worthy. and. Then you have E. C. Green. See. Great having how he's making before me I I just want to say I swear to God. It makes no sense I know. You got the Laker girls on there before me I was on the team before their I one, million percent in agreement with you. I didn't when I saw the cover I said to the designer. Why is AC Green on that? He wasn't a contributor and Assad? How fourth but to me like I think you put you on the cover of a not kidding Knob brown-nosing you. You put you on the cover before you put Rambus on the cover before him put him Wilson the cover before him you put mcadoo on the car it was a strange choice and the author doesn't have that much. But I I have taken so much grief over that and the one it's really not my fault and number two. I agree with you thousand percent. Guy While I feel better now that I'm hearing it from events their criticism I, don't get it definitely. Ask you this. Did you have? As much fun doing this book as as we did participating in Bacon book become a reality I think it'd be impossible because you were you're a Laker. The height of his just the best to be a Laker and I was just a guy trying to recapture but for me so I'm forty eight. I grew up in New York and I don't know if you've ever felt this way growing up watching the Lakers watching basketball by like I, remember being a kid. And you turn on the TV and you only get one game and who you know unless you you get next games but you got one game when it'd be the Lakers. Zoom in in Inglewood on the forum and you'd see the palm trees and Laker and the sunshine. And it just sparked something in me as a kid. So to dive into that into that team and those feelings was honesty like really special for me it just was so yeah but see there's no way I enjoy it as much as you live. You live the life, which is unbelievable. What was the most interesting thing about writing the book I mean cereal. I mean. You Know I. Love The carrot like this is going to sound dumb or maybe like I get it immediately. I always thought the characters like Magic Karim where the you Rambus Jomaa, they were like really well known. That I love the Mark Land Burgers, I, Love Earl. Jones, you know I love those little side like I drove up to Bridgeport Connecticut spend an afternoon with Wes Matthews Wes Matthews one of the biggest bad ass down. Where you're like city across like is this Guy GonNa. Punch me because he's a so intense. I like. I love stuff like that. Like there was one story about mark landsberger playing after he spilled a milkshake on his Jersey and there's this chocolate milkshake and Gary Video I think was Gary leaders what do not have your other Jersey and he's like I didn't know I was supposed to bring to you know like. I love that stuff and I love like Earl Jones was he was a number one picks now he was a late number one because you guys are really good. But they draft this guy or dunes and Jerry West he's he always said if you're gonNA make a mistake, make it big. You don't make a big mistake in earl. Jones. Remember don't seven feet Tall University of district. Columbia. Very. Low Bass. Why Queue you know just it wasn't GonNa like the stories I don't verse you for someone who was telling me about magic or worthy. Told me about magic intensely throwing passes off off Earle Jones his head back to. Keep up and I just like I love that stuff like I really love that stuff a lot wes matthews is a character but what did you think about Oliver Mats and Ron Carter? Ron and I came out that first year new VM I e supposed to be the next. Big Guard. You know 'cause we have filled ron boom lou, Hudson all those guys on out the door. Iran. Arcane and he got drafting sent years I. What about those? Well, see I really actually loved the. There are a lot of guys. We just need to people forget like that guy was a Laker and that guy was later on those guys came along and there were these building block years were really interesting and I actually always think of. It was interesting how norm Nixon just as an example comes along. And he was I think they're third number one or the third pick in the draft that year because the guy who was supposed to be was Brad Davis who end up having this long career with Dallas. And there's just a lot of guys who came along like the Ron Carter's who were sort of. They weren't foundation players because ended up not really being foundation players. They were guys like a guy like yourself was at the time kind of nobody like nobody who Michael Cooper and nobody knew this guy was gonna come along and that just like with. Are Bigger names coming out of college at the time. What's interesting my God I know you you saw this like Scouting back then was set an inexact science like you didn't have all the metrics you have today you didn't have teams descending upon small schools, seeing millions of players. So you would take shots on guys not nearly as much and guys like you, as like Nora, who were far more talented than a lot of these bigger names would fall through the cracks is a scouting just wasn't as good. So it's interesting to see all the names of guys were supposed to be supposed to be supposed to be a meanwhile guys weren't supposed to be like you norm. would. Kind of people would be taken by surprise nowadays, you're probably a top ten pick in the NBA draft US people like there's this guy and he's a great defender really athletic and he skinny he's bubba lobbies. He's he he has his talent and you would have thirty scouts looking at you back in the day. There are a lot of hidden gems didn't such a different era now. Coop played multiple positions. He is kind of. Set for this era what are the other background stories I love in this book to the Kurt Rambis background story who is like living with somebody the Lakers front office like sleeping on their floor and he didn't own a car. Didn't have a suit and he was just like at one outfit Gert rises a crazy person well I love it. He used to I'm I don't remember that He. told me he used to rummage through the stores in the locker room and stuff. I. which is amazing. Just amazing is that is that a fair that affair sort of? Encompassing of Kurt Rambis. Interesting Guy, and he's these guys have been like to spend money in the he hid his myth contracts saying wasn't is free for me. They believe in that but going back to what you said about hit. Miss Draft. Picks. Are. Jeff. Is that one of the things that may jerry wet so good. As far as assessing talent and going out really looking talent and. A lot of people he looked at what was specific for our team and at that time when he building is starting to build the Lakers in with. This came into what your book is called. Showtime what was your thoughts about Would you interview miss the West? First of all fascinating guy obviously fascinating. He his during the course of researching my book his book came out. He wrote a book autobiography. It's one of the best sports books I've ever read brutally honest and. It's interesting when you go up to, Jerry West someone will tell you okay. You have ten minutes or Jerry, and if you don't know any better, your say your ten minutes rejected Jerry's in our with Jerry. Exactly. I will tell you he's brutally honest and he's brutally. He's an interesting guy because he shows you when he's wounded like you shows you when he's upset like I have a book coming out in a few months about the shack Hobie era I did almost a sequel book. and. He was talking about Nick Van Exel to me and when Nick. WAS TRADED TO DENVER. He took some shots at the Lakers. And Jerry. West's was wounded like it actually hurt his feelings. We could see he was like I really believed in this guy and I love Van I loved his game and I didn't want to trade him. It just wasn't working in He was so. Honest and so sincere and what I really liked about him. I'm sure you feel the same way as a general manager. He's a rare guy like he didn't need the credit like you didn't need to be the guy who found you and also. A lot of teams across the pro sports spectrum. If you're a free agent, you're not gonNA, get the same shot as a guy they put a lot of money into fewer guy found on the garbage heap. You're not going to get the same shop. He just wanted the best team like if you're a piece of crap coming out at some. Viewer Mike penberthy coming out a master's college and you showed you could play. He was thrilled to have you on the team. If you showed, you deserve to start us thrilled to have you start over number one pick like it didn't. It wasn't about ego to emerge just about building. I thought I have nothing bad to say about Jerry what you think that's a characteristic that like it's so rare to have a great time basketball player or athlete become A. Great coach John Imagine that sport for a lot of differences. But do you think like that characteristic is one of the reasons why he was successful I mean beyond like the scouting I and all that other stuff well, it's interesting I. I used to Cover Baseball for sports illustrated and we used to talk a decent amount about so ted Williams, Hall of Famer Late Hall of Famer. He was a manager of the Washington senators for awhile when it's when I was in Washington and he was a horrible manager, just a horrible manager and. What people used to say, he could not understand what it was to be a to twenty hitter. Here's Ted Williams at four hundred. I can understand if you look around generally the best executives are not the guys who were the best players you know I, think one of Michael, Jordan's flaws is an. Is he doesn't know what it is to suck. You'll like he's always been amazing and it's heart. If you're Michael Jordan really understand what is to be Frank Kaminsky and Jerry West Somehow was able to cross that sort of barrier and he was able to empathize players and understand players and you can look into Michael. Cooper. It'd be like I. Get this Guy's game I understand this guy's game. I see what he can bring to the table at a lot of guys who is Jerry Westward look at Michael Cooper and say this is a defensive one dimensional a young player. He's going to be able enjoy westwood able to see a full package is very unusual for guy who achieve that much basketball it is and you hit that right on the head Depakote Matthew Finish. PLAN AND WE WERE COACHING For those seven gateway poster Seventeen Games. I think. One of the things that we were coaching Nick Axel Eddie Jones Ellen Campbell. Earlier And Matthew sit on the bench and nick panics with come down on fast break and throw the ball away and that you to irate magic so much because he couldn't see I would say who has he missed that play I, mean the bounce pass off somebody footloose the great players that it's hard for them and Jesse hit it right for they can't see that game. The Layman's way I think Jerry success came a little bit from his humble beginnings from where he came from. That's why him being a star he is able to put himself in that position to seek players such myself. And Michael Thomson Kurt Rambis, and put on a C. Green to put us in a position to where he was slowly building showtime. Attendant became don't think a lot of guys they become super-duper. Stars. It's like they lose a sense of empathy a little bit. They forget what was to be coming up and I just think he was always Maybe. Haunted as wrong word. But like you just said West, Virginia stuck with him and being you know this poor kid in West Virginia with all these struggles I think that ever left who he was. He didn't just become la La Become L. A. You always carry that with him and I think that really made him who he was allowed him to empathize. With knickknacks with Earl Jones with a Michael Cooper's coming up in our. So Jeff. Piece of early and you talk about Claire Rothman Meeting Dr Bus. and Dr Busek bought the La Strings and he was moving for the Claire Rothman. who was the CEO was a everything at the form at the time for Jack Kente Cook and she kept asking bus you go. Why would you wanNA play that Shit? which was the coliseum at the time put his team down there. So she I guess. She. Had Jerry come to the forum and they had bit about how that urge Juno Clear Ralph men. Wonderful, what I love it. The title of best she's about she's I mean if you think about her, she was an executive in pro sports a woman. When the we're not in the were not she should. Make you're going to be you're GONNA be like that's don't. You can make an argument clare off logs in the basketball hall of fame officer. With you on that. and. When Jack Kente Cook on the team, he would have her come in and he would go like this and he would make her twirl to show her outfit for the day like she was treated like nearby by this guy, you know and then Jerry Buss come. And Jerry Buss was set. He's a really complicated guy because on the one hand you see with the motto is and you know have AIDS, these women and Blah Blah Blah but on the other hand, he was really progressive and. On Clear Madam she she was very adamant about. You can't play in this dump. This is not with a Laker should be playing and she really until you say she belongs in the basketball people on the basketball family she was the one who really guided him Jerry Buss and kind of took him by the hand and said this here's where we have. This is what the Lakers are. This is what needs to change. This is what's wrong and he listened to her you listened to one hundred percent. I I think she's a huge huge thing important piece of the Laker picture. She put those two together Dr Beth Five, the Lakers and we're rolling forward, and now we start playing Lakers Higher Jack mckinney and mckinney gets hurt and then they bring in our west hit. On the piece that you wrote about and you kind of have had their lot about when magic. Wasn't having fun and I remember. Houston magic. Set Now Kaku from not having fun I. GotTa have this. How interesting was that scenario for you to build this story? Why think the whole time period? For me the most interesting time Lakers was disband where they went from. they were about to hire Jerry Arcane away from UNLV. Agent is found dead in the trunk of a car, which is just insane. So they don't hire him and the Higher Jack mckinney. Did you did not play for mckinney, right? Yes I did. He got coconut. Season where they win the championship gets her I mean you're right sees it is crazy. Kadian, it starts with Takeda and his agent get killed and that Yeah Jack Mackenzie the injury I mean it's insane. Actually, you know what's interesting this I just remembered while writing the book. I, think I told my wife I was like someone could write a book about. Eighty. Lakers and it'd be terrific. Someone still could it's unbelievable. So Kanaan's going to be the coach agent founded car mckinney. Becomes a head coach. He's great. Everyone Loves Jack mckinney great guy like a wonderful. Guy. He's going on there on your first off-day the season he's riding his bike to play tennis with Paul Westhead it's Shakespearean it's like tennis Paul. Westhead riding down a hill stopped short as breaks flips over lands on his head is John Doe in the hospital known because think about that. Now, like thinking about like even Frank Vogel is not a huge huge name. Right, right. We'll go vase on his head riding his bike goes L. A.. He's not a John like they're like Oh my God that's the Lakers coach. So that happens west takes over these championship and then you know, I, it's interesting because I talked a lot of Lakers about it I don't remember how much we talked about it when I taught to you He sorted his change things up. All at that was a big thing that seem to bother people like he. He had this thing word and then he kind of did with some coaches do which is that was really good. Now, let's make it even better when you just wanted an NBA championship and. It it almost. It seems like magic in a way got an unfair amount of the burden for quote unquote firing him. He obviously didn't fire him. But when you're superstar Point Guard, he's twenty years old twenty one years old. Isn't feeling anymore and wants to be trained. You know talk about getting traded to Detroit. You. Have to do something you obviously have to do something. But I don't know you know you were there I wasn't isn't dressing like did you? Was it as obvious sort of at the moment that West head is just kind of butchering a really good thing and maybe taking something that was great and. And also now you have the benefit of having a coach like. Can you understand in hindsight what he was doing or you look back and? You know when he was he took it remember that that that the sports illustrated cover back to school gorgeous then and that was like Mind blowing to a lot of this because basketball was simple and when he came in and did mess with it or cheaper with it, we want to championship now he wants to do something else, but you know not allow being coached myself. I. Can see it's the players game and I think Dr Bus. Did. What was best for the team and magic wasn't having fun? This guy had choreographed replay five positions wanted championship big numbers stabbed himself in Los Angeles. So I think busted what he had to do in. Getting rid a West Ed. I think too that just wasn't what happened at that period of time in sports. You know what I mean like in hindsight, we can look at in twenty twenty and say right and even I mean in the last twenty years we could say it was so obvious it had to be all but I just think like the just the idea of here's this young kid that comes in and he's getting the coach fire. So obviously, in hindsight, they should have fired while west, it like it make an elevated Riley to basically do exactly what mckinney started, which was showtime style but I just think at that time it was so shocking that just didn't happen and it was not. You just don't do that. I wouldn't say I, wouldn't say it was obvious because you really came in and difficult circumstances and did coat you know you can say was a players driven lead which was, but he did coach that team new champions I wouldn't say it's obvious a year and a half later you need to the coaches that by. It is funny that you bring that up nowadays. Players have so much more power right? I mean they're making so much money. So obviously, we've seen Lebron. Says a coach is gone or you know whoever says a coach gotten the coaches probably gone and back then it was really I mean the La Times accusing Magic Johnson of firing the coach me for that very brief sliver of time magic. Johnson. was kind of sinister in where he was deemed as coach killer he was calling the shots and it was a really seems like a very uncomfortable time I in Laker history briefly but suffered. From the inside I know that it wasn't like I think what happened is that magic the first player to go public input in the media? I think that's what made it so astounding but. We get past that PAT. Ryan takes over the team, and now we start that rivalry with the celtics now that rivalry could go back to college when bird and magic met at Indiana State Michigan. State and they brought that to the pro game. But as we play the Celtics what were some of the interviews that you had that were interesting to you all wait. Here's my favorite thing. It involves you. So people always said like there's always magic Berber. Magic. Magic birth. Bird. Heated. You more than freaky Magic Johnson like. Those guys all heated you like it's always like, oh, the clothesline with curtis attic above up like. You're just one of the few absolute pain asses to Larry Bird, and that is very hard. I tried I wanted to get that Leprechaun s the one I was after Ernie. But was interesting interviewing people, Celtics, and the Lakers side yeah it was great. I mean, you know who is great their companies car was awesome. Asked about that asshole no. But a great interview, you WanNa talk to the Assad. They. Really. It's funny because I don't I don't know if you felt this way personally like. It was this a real respect hate rivalry like it was it was they hated you. Hate your like a heated you because you guys were good and and competitive, and there's a lot of trash talk. Obviously, you do a lot of it. You know burgers doing a lot of it like, but it was a lot of was also a lot of really interesting respect I mean to me like. When James Worthy at the free throw line and M L? Carr walks by him and says. Look like an Emo car talked about that N. worthy talked about that at length. A really crossed like it feels like that crosses the line a little bit of a live where that was just. It went like that cross any line of respect and I think that was like that was like a real obviously the clothes lining of Kurt rambis like really crossed the line of respect. There were moments and I was fascinated very fast. My read our back and just the lengths you would go to sort of do anything to you know tilt the scales in their favor as far as. The temperature control on your locker room as far as leading the newspapers. No, we're what hotel you guys are staying in, and then having people pull alarms at four in the morning in the hotel lobby he the one that. Album before. Just by Dow. Yes I am. You know what? I got all these sports books at home I never ever. But in giving prepare for this I read yet. So I mean that was very interesting. But if you know what your Book Really Kit and reading that book really hit on the Games, you know game number or you know really hit that that brought out that intensity me but that was what the Celtic laker rivalry was. About. Very intense elite like you know yes it said how bad the hills we hated them even more simply for the fact that they have been beating the Lakers all go back to the sixties having one. So finally, a four cons we thought we had the better team. We don't get it done because birthdays trying to in bought inbound the Baugh. Gerald Hilton runs in front is deals it. Did you ever talk the Hinson about that play. Now, I don't think I talked to Anderson I talked a worthy at length about it and I mean, it's one of the most crushing plays in Lakers history and I. It's interesting because we're these obviously really smart player. Cagey. Player and with the you know what you say we want about the Celtics they were very cagey team. One of the things they did really well as at -ticipant you know they risk if you watch tapes of the Celtics back, then I don't think. I've ever seen a team that was actually better as far as anticipating where passes were going. It's just dating passing lanes anticipating sort of WHO's going to get the ball. They were really good at at those sort of things also that that sounded team was really good. You know like it almost takes away from what you guys did when people are like a guy sounded like. Hey I've always hated I. Hate when people say Larry Bird wasn't a good athlete is one of the lamest most easily dismissable like pieces of nonsense they look at home and back in the day always this. White Guy. Library. was insanely good at like libraries in the top one percent of athletes in the world like Larry. Bird. Great. Great Athlete who knew all the angles and all the way. And I always saw. When people were dismissed the Celtics. In a way, dismissing your guys accomplishments because I think you guys be a team that any other year in the NBA is running the League you guys were just. Good, they were able to do it. If you know what they probably and this can go down. But down for the their front line, I'm going to include four Maxwell but birth Mikhail impairs probably was the best frontline separate play the history of the game of basketball. Would you agree? Man I. Mean I I was Mikhail was a really fascinating like you would look cal. There are certain players I always say like there are certain players. If you told kids today, this guy was a really good NBA player you that doesn't make any sense like if you took Charles Barkley Larry, those two guys hours against showed them, those guys come on and nursing McHale you can make Elliott. Those long arms is kind of ganglion wasn't very thick and the shoulder blades poppy out like you play against those low post moves they're working today is not like today. Being, stopped in the low post I mean he was ridiculous. I almost overshadowed because bird. Don't you think so surgery. Robert Parish. Come on I mean. Yeah, just also like overshadowed because the era he played in the area Korean at ewing it. Samson yet allows one yet a million great centers. I thought he was. At didn't save very much. Trash talk when you played against off the nets anything. Never said anything but going on pace to sixty three a book you had a great. Going to eighty five, we had that one championship yet a great story about Josh Rosenfeld was used to be our PR guy. The during that series, we won a championship and and Kurt Rambis at handed Josh. Wet, tile. And as we were going out, Stadium Justin talent stands and it hit a woman at wrapped around her. I happen to be Robert Parish his wife. Johnston, next season was looking for him and he finally gets chance to see Robert. Parish and he says, Hey, cheap by like a talk to you. You know the cameras all around and I mean, you really got this really really good and I wanNA finish that. Was this quote the bitch deserved it. Talent and Josh Acid A. To Fund Roberts through the on your face, and you know what I'm really sorry about that antique comes back and I'm glad you did because you know they try to get that bitch to shut up for lighter I want to do it. He was by. Terrified he was like he was dreading having to go up to parish. Riley was like you gotta go up and Apologize Blah Blah Blah and he's like he's hands are sweaty and he's all nervous hard five and the guy was kinda delightful. You also goes to show you can't always judge a book. So that would finally get over the celtics eighty four weekdays and eighty five Did you ever get a chance to talk to Jerry West about the the goal from the path being lifted off his shoulder? US winning the championship why he hated the Celtics more than any of you guys did a lot of ways he was really haunted by all those years of failure and. Loss after loss after loss and those Laker teams he was on I mean immunologist Baylor name a better to some in the history of the NBA and they just couldn't get past it so. For Him. It was as emotional as meaningful. As a Westerner. Anyway I really mean anybody because nobody hated the Celtics number two he couldn't get past the Celtics. Number three he constructed this team that was finally able to do it And to see Celtic grades involved, read our Mac Casey Jones like that. It just meant a lot to him was almost he's not a review I? Don't I don't think anyone would say Jerry, west revengeful person or a guy who's wants to. Ruin your life, but I think for him. He needed that rich so Most of the Lakers we talk we've talked with podcast Kareem. Most the ones that have won multiple championships will say eighty five was their favorite title and I mean for the reasons, you just named the fact that they wanted at the Boston Garden it was just like this. Perfect. You know perfect situation. Yeah I mean had to be like. You had to Boston like you had to be Boston. It was now there's no. You to beat Detroit of that period or Philly at that period that you're if the Knicks, it somehow got enough i. I I mean Michael Speak speaking much better I can. From. A basketball historical standpoint. The reason at title stands up so much isn't just because they want it's because they vanquished. AFO that hadn't been vanquished and again I, really great ask. Wasn't like they built a beat a team that kinda snuck into the like when Boston, when they beat a Houston team I, think finish the regular season, forty, two and forty. This was anything but that this was beating as good a team as you compete. For me growing up in Los Angeles having watched that over the years and. My uncle. Was a Celtic Fan. He's sitting down and having me the Celtics play. This is how you play basketball so. Over the years and finally did draft by Lakers was really something that. Touched me deeply when we won 'cause I remember magic go on after that game were crying and happy and excited and stuff like that. But the thing I kept thinking that you know this is Jerry. This is for a Elton Baylor. This is real this is for. You even chick chip. Saw Him on the plane then he was so elated because it you know all the years that we had lost Celtics either question for you when you when you run into guys throughout the course of your sort of last whatever two decades where you run into a bird or Mikhail. Is there any of the rivalry that hangs over it or can you just be buddy buddy and hey, Nah everybody in. Not Too, many things going back to seven basketball saying tragic magic one back to M L Carr up down sideline waving stupid white tile going back to all them guys. It was sitting over there Sam bad things about US know Jeff. I've never be friends with them now except for setbacks. We'll also host to podcast others network at his network is out of Boston so. Good said. Player. The one thing we could do that. We could sit and talk right delay as long as we're like this. Close, to each other, it'll be fights. Okay. Spike WHO's. WHO's again that team like who you like the most actually being serious like as a guy like he's a good guy, the guy on that team he's passed away didn't Johnson Denison from Los Angeles grew up in Denison were very close friends But during the season, he would try to talk to be on the court by hand how family man don't say. Are you serious coop about this and I wouldn't say anything to him. But after the season he come home to La hey how you doing you know has wife and everybody's doing good. So he's the only one but I always always have respect for all of them because. An Maxwell we've he's been I've been on his show podcast. He's a mind. We talk about the respect we have won eleven that love hate you said, but now I just now and You got your vengeance He was traded the clippers. Talks about that too. Good but. A little bit about my background Jeff I grew up in Chicago in the nineties. So you know I mean MJ's always been everything to be but I mean, do you think creams the great of all time? Do I actually do it? I'm not just saying that because I here I've I've made this argument from the time I worked on this book and I don't disagree with you. The background to. It sucks because of a hundred people, you might get one person who says it but here's your one look at his high school career if college career goes NBA career. I don't even know what really the argument is. If you, I, really dont if you're talking about the greatest around player. He revolutionized Yankee truly revolutionized the game they tried to rule against the Dunkin College they did were against the dummy odds because of his existence he. He I. Mean He is outspokenness is willingness to sort of stand up changing his name when all these teams do not change your name. Across. The board. The. Most important player in modern NBA in in basketball history is Kareem Abdul Jabbar I. Think. If you don't. And our although I will you go right for me so Is called a few from the bench knock what you another event. Our. View on the bench of all the benches I've had and it's not gonNA be ugly. Booker nastiest on be a very well rounded book. Yes. I'll tell secrets couple of them but it's GonNa be view from my bench with the the Lakers with wnba sparks and the bench for my coaching in the G. League and the little time I had with Denver which was just Incredible anyway it's called. Our love for you. You're familiar with that. You didn't like Denver. Giver was good back away to general manager there, and I went there this under some really weird times. Jeff is Delic- with the head coach, they brought me from the the WNBA. This defense coach I was never given the word and Carmelo Anthony and Kenyon Martin interesting players coach it was just a Interesting do. So when I get ready to do this I want you to get in with it. I just WANNA say I feel like you may disagree. Carmelo Anthony is probably my least favorite NBA Clare him as a person just as far as the game. I don't think he would have worked in the NBA you were playing in i. think he would have been maybe he would've been on a bad team scoring twenty nine game but on a team like yours. It just wouldn't work. You could not have a guy like that or the sound guy. Now, I need thirty touches a game I need I need like it just it doesn't translate to the best of NBA basketball. You know that's A. Good analogy. But I'M GONNA, ask you questions. You have a couple of players you think in the League today that could've played. Let's say with the Lakers I in just in the eighties alone. Obviously Lebron physically could, but he wouldn't be able to be the players didn't have the power back then so would have an interest. Obviously, Lebron would have been a great you know. I find a guy like Chris Paul really interesting because. It seems like teammates don't really Lakers fall but. He's a great player of teammates don't sort of like him and I feel like I don't think he actually would have fit in that well back then because I think he would have been kind of an outcast on a roster I think would contain any era and I think people. You disagree you disagree. He's the kind of a quiet guy not like I. Go with you suckers tough man you know but I think a lot I always think. So I'm like my favorite ever Bass Mazi eighties I think the answer is the best in the early nineties and It's interesting I used to use I used to talk about like Reggie, theus was my example right Reggie theus was always bad NBA teams. Because he was a guy who'd score a lot of points on the Bachelor I. Remember you guys had Tony Campbell for awhile right John Campbell Tony Campbell. went to Minnesota in the expansion draft in the average twenty one a game and I remember being a kid and thinking, Wow, this twenty camp was really good and it's like, no. NBA Player. If he's given thirty shots, a game can average twenty points a game. You're a skilled enough average twenty game I think there are a lot of guys now. They could average twenty points a game on a bad team but that doesn't mean you're going to be a good player on a good team and there's this difference in their a lot of players now I mean, Carmelo. Timmy's is a number one example of of a talented player who score a lot of points in the bad team doesn't bring much good I. Think CJ mccollum would have been very good. NBA Player back in the day. I do I think unselfish player I think he's a smart player but I don't know if Damian Lillard winter I mean he's talented but I just think there are a lot of guys now who would have been the Reggie theus is a thirty years ago. Klay Thompson could've played. A steph. Kevin Durant I think Kevin Durant could've played I think What's the little guy he's playing with? The little guard or Kyrie. Kyrie he would have problems in as. I mean he could have been Kinda like that is area, but he don't really have the toughness to me that Isaiah has but also like. I just don't think back. Then people wanted to hear you whining all the time and complaining all the time. It was like look the likely and also the NBA life thirty like took these guys in a time machine and put them back thirty years. They'd be like, wait. This is this is what we're traveling on. This is where we're. was now that was bad a comparatively it's like, Oh, where's my publicist says he's not here my phone and they'd be. They just wouldn't know how to deal. You know like they're just really pamper guys these days and that's fine like you guys pave the way for the modern NBA you gave them this great lifestyle, which is great for them. I don't begrudge them but I think is through back thirty years. Like three, you guys back thirty years you know like I mean, we've lived out for that. Jim I agree with you guys commercial goodness would. Getting on an early plane flying Landon and having to play later on. Yeah. Now. You've got showtime to coming out you said Shaq. and Kobe is called three ring circus since coming on September and IT'S Really Spans. On Ninety six, four spend a lotta time with Kobe. So. Kobe's a one guiding get got shack I. Got I didn't get Kobe and I was told early on. So just being honest like the. He was. I think he was you know during that time period the whole Colorado Eagle Colorado rape. Situation. and. I just think that always hung over everything and so he did I was taught early on you're getting Kobe. Mockery. Checkers Great Phil gave me hours and hours. You know. One of the players have you got in that little air that you to. Shaw's guy wouldn't talk. You know I'll tell you something and you may disagree at this. All right. This is in how water little. The Lakers changes an organization. They just have they. They have like they're not as I've talked about this without the Lakers it's different guys like. It used to be back in the day you get. They were just when I were on that show time book. It was the best. It was the best and John Black recruiting. Baba and it was never was never about I really mean this was never about what are you gonNA write I need to know what you're never it was like, Oh, you're doing a book about Showtime Your Journalists Your reputable journalists we're going to help you every way we can't right that's just what it was. It feels like they've really changed a little bit that I. It doesn't feel like the family. It just doesn't feel like a family organization quite in the same way it did. And it felt like there are a lot of roadblocks. Now, if you've got an I love Jeanie Buss love genius but it just feels like it's a little bit different media is helping people out. Helping writers out lies, and. That was kind of disappointing so. I got a lot of time. I'm just guys got a lot of times Rick Fox. Lots with Nick Glen Rice I mean on the board birth the. I interviewed. Dozens and dozens of players. Madsen you know whatever but I I did feel like. It's not the same as when you guys were playing it just as it's not the same, it doesn't feel if allow more corporate than it did I don't know if you've noticed Adalah by well now with time contains and I think that's how they are. It's almost because when I go over there, they still are cordial accepting the alumni that calm but it's feels like it's a corporation now and they're very guardians of that and I think with the Times on way things are and people saying thing and social media going on there really protective of that now and the players s understandable and also I mean, Jerry, west was I felt like the kind of tone came from Jerry Wesson Jerry West reside was a what do you WanNa. Ask Me Kinda guy you really wants he was a do WanNa. Ask Me Kinda Guy and now you have Palinka in charge and that that is not not dogging him. I don't even know him but he's a former agent and the first instinct of agent besides making as much money as you can feel players protecting your fire and that sort of changes tone a lot I mean the NBA is a much harder. Lead to cover. Now than it was back in the day, they really put up a lot of barriers. If you WANNA get players now for any length of time you have to agents or publicists or there people are and he used to be you want to get Michael Cooper. You show talk to Michael Cooper Writing Remembers I interviewed you for Showtime Book I called USC OR UC at the time they said, what time do you want to get him? I said the available in this day they said short came the USC and I spoke to you like that was it. It wasn't a big enough to go through the hoops. It's just it's changed a lot. Yeah, has been. The type of access you could have if you were in the bubble. Oh, right now I mean you can write a heck of a book if you were in the bubble right now with everybody. There's a great book to be written about light on the NBA. I. Think I could see someone it's an amazing sixty day or whatever it is period, right? Yeah. Pretty well, I think they I think will be Louis flipping out and get. Ripped club that'll be the first. Can you believe that Shit? That's incredible. Man That see stuff like that never would have happened. In the eighties and not you know guys that same thing about it. But also what about why or Strip clubs open in Florida Florida's like. The pandemic right now like who's going to you know what I really wanted to north clean place I want to go. That's germ-free on go to a strip club. Listen. Thank you so much. We really really appreciate spend some time with us. Yeah. Thank you. Fans out there. Get it is called showtime and it goes a little deeper than what we've explained here. Thank you so much. Thank you have a good day. Man are take your eyes.

They're going to be a racist when they moved to vegas. I haven't decided it doesn't feel right. It doesn't feel right and i definitely don't like the whole idea of even getting on a plane going football but okay so antonio brown has <music> not been in camp. He has frostbite on his feet from being in a chamber and he didn't wear the socks. You're supposed to wear to keep your feet from like getting frostbite. You you ever done that cryotherapy. No but i i've done i've been meaning to it makes me feel good facility. Yeah yeah very refreshing rushing a nap. When did you do it. My wife took me to like last summer of course me to go in and you've got to be here for three minutes and it does get cold but you could tough it out but it doesn't make hugos refreshing when he hasn't been campus is like his toes are messed up because his frostbite and then today the story from mike silver comes out that the other other part of the reason why he's disgruntled is that the n._f._l. Is making him change his helmet and it's a helmet that has not done well in safety tests. It's an old helmet guys like aaron. Rodgers drew at tom. Brady have also had this issue. They gave a one year waiver to everybody with who liked that old helmet but that waiver is up and now now you gotta switch to the new safer helmet so antonio brown really just doesn't like this and i understand people's helmets. It's like the same way i feel about my glove or the same where battlefields about their helmet but this isn't really up to the raiders like holding this against the raiders and very upset and it's hurting his relationship with the team to the point where he is going on instagram in tweeting. If i stay well he's just starting to draw texaco so he's not going to walk away from nineteen million dollars a year this year knowledge rebel so he could he can pitch a fitness his feet all he wants to speak to heal up but <hes> he'll end up wearing the customized helmet because he's got no choice so this is all for show he's putting on. He's doing a little bit jor tension to himself like a little spoiled child but but the bottom line is he's gonna put the helmet on when he's rate a plane especially for that position. We've been used to this in the n._f._l. It's fine. It's not necessarily ideal but we've had drama from wide receivers. That's sort of part of the position and until like the bottom line is he's still diva the mall i i read his book that he wrote after the first year imagine if somebody wrote a book now after his first year essentially calling out his own organization but the book was great right by the way is actually really entertaining shot at the shelley smith so i just think antonio brown. He's so good still i just. I don't think that there was really any slip up last year that he's still going. It'd be much much more worth the value of the contract than a little bit of drama with this helmet now. The thing is an ideal. You'd like to get them in camp because of his he's. He's gonna be fine. There's just some level of respect for the contract that you signed like i just feel like when you saw when you could trade into the raiders and then you sign a new deal with them. They invest in you they show. Are you love that way like you should try to make your employer happy a little bit like we all have a little rage against the machine. I don't want to tell me what to do. I understand that people especially you stars of that. Ilk don't like to be told what to do but like don't you have some level of responsibility i mean don't you feel like it's disrespectful. Izzo so into a new organization like that own team. No play with treat me that way. You know who you are. You expect those checks to be in there. Every two weeks. Expect i wanted to be in your automatic deposit. I expect accu to conduct yourself as a professional and follow the rules of the team so it was that and if you can't then come see me and i'll make sure you can go someplace else simple as that why teams put up with this garbage. We want to say hi by the way to it's that showed up here at rock and brews in orange county. Thank you guys so much for coming hanging out with us. Michael and i will be here until seven we mow hanging out for a segment after pitching with mason jason and michael so one thing that <hes> you guys i'm sure heard the news that lionel hollins is one of the what what was what made it portland house live so i i ran into lionel who was a great player by the way back in the day championship player for portland. What was it seventy seventy. He's six seventy seven season that they won with bill and then bill won't and gets hurt but i i asked a lionel hollins about michael as i can remember me. I did i what about this. What about this hotshot shot rookie did he come in wearing puka shells and he kind of looked over at me and he said oh man like that boy had some stuff going on and we think of michael now. He's so sweet. He's about so i'm curious. Fess up to before we talk the lionel next time we see him in the lakers. Though i was a good looking guy i was the first base ciller still yeah being reggie theus member reggie theus good looking guys in the league but i wasn't a troublemaker or anything like that and it kept my place i kept my mouth shut like the rock says no your role and shut gotcha mouth and that's what i did and i i defer to the veterans. Lyonel holland's dave towards bobby grows blurry steal all these guys at one championship so i'm not gonna accompany academic hotshot. I'm the showed no way. I was humble around those guys. He's got no stories to tell you about me. I was quiet. I kept my head down and did my job by the way the story about how you met your well. I mean no not lavar ball is actually the story of how you met your wife. The one taste profile her. She was like oh she's athletic and she's tall. Likely i mean that's sounded like just like lavar ball just not as loud as lavar in he happened to be <hes> by the way we have a fifty five inch samsung smart tv to give away away to somebody here five hundred sixty five inch fifty five yes right. There is right through a nice tv. Thank you to isaac and everybody muir audio video. We also have a five hundred dollar. Gift card to discount account tire movie passes the regal cinemas and cinemark provided by aaa discounted award discount tire regal cinemas cinemark and also the grand prize in jersey. That's let's begin davis jersey number three not number twenty three. We knew how all that happened all right ramona anybody else we need to know before you head back and brave the traffic what else what else is going on in the world and it's been a couple of slow sports days overall when we are. You surprised ramona that it took fifty players invitations to finally start forming team u._s._a. What what has happened to these guys what is going on in basketball regarding saying. You know what i really think it is. I think it is the travel this year. I think it's they're going to australia australia. Mccollum set about why guys turn down u._s._a. Guys will free to take an l. on their chest. I cannot believe that is the reason and one is being. That's interesting. I don't want to do with federal. A lot of it has to do with the travel. They're going to australia and china and would you see driving visiting heads of state for its right before training camp so like australia is like the farthest around the world you can go except unless unless you go to new zealand or guam. That's just a little bit farther but those are. That's a really long flight. Then you go to china and your heart listen you travel around cook clare through this when he played for team u._s._a. Came back and for the olympic team steve kerr basically said okay you staff train on don't really have to report on time and work out aggressive so 'cause you've been playing right and so they give you time to readjust when you fly back from the far east from china or australia take three or four days to adjust to the time get over the jet like it ain't that hard. They play eighteen minutes a game for team u._s._a. Because they're so deep and so good nobody has to extend themselves that hard and they stay in the best seven star hotels. They fly like the flying air force one and ain't that hard. I don't know why and it's such it's such a pleasure and privilege to represent your country and a lot of these guys. This is their only chance to get a gold medal. That's strange because they're not going to be invited to tokyo. This isn't even the j._v. right so i'm just shocked to so many guys pulled out saying well trying to get ready for the size. There's one other thing about team u._s._a. I say that i think might fire you up. There's a there's something that with gregg popovich and a certain player. I think you might think is a little bit sketchy. We'll get to that coming up. Thank you to momo for saying hanging out have have a good drives. Thanks everybody for showing up. Thompson trudell hanging out on the show today e._s._p._n. L._a. sodano showed today. It's thompson entered l. hanging out for a second straight. They were down on an orange county wrapping up o._c. Week. What do you think it's kinda trudell down this week. I love orange county. Really it's got a lot to offer deep achieve deeper than disney well so we come down here. We're we're in buena park which is pretty close at disneyland just down. You can almost see it from your right. I try so come down to disney a lot. The boys of course love going to disneyland. There's all of the great beach towns ireland is from newport. Beach is really mac. I've been at huntington a bunch of times. I went there to take my dog. I have a french bulldog lila to the dog beach it huntington beach. I've been into laguna beach because i used to watch <hes> the hills. You know those shows you watch that right. I saw parts of it in watching religiously the hills in the <hes> let's see. I don't know if i've been down now. I've never gotten the invitation to come to your state. I don't want nobody coming by my house. You don't you don't invite anybody. Ireland's ever been down there. Stu stop by reading the doorbell. I'll say hiding didn't leave well. Michael also doesn't come in you can have a glass of wine or a beer but after that time to go around the back though maybe if i if i've out because because i know you like to keep your floors really clean definitely. I'm a clean freak neat freak. I don't mind. I don't mind company. I guess i tolerate company for a couple of hours. Watch the game you know smoke cigars champagne beer or wine or whatever something like that guy but after two hours okay time to go. Why don't you move on your stuff to the new place. <hes> i think sometimes probably i bought october tober preseason. Okay right there all right very good well. I i so team u._s._a. Is actually planning tonight. Okay scrimmage so they're playing against each other and i i think the select team actually selecting versus the senior squad blue white off sort of a mix but they'll use some of the players the so i i saw this story yesterday from ric bucher derek whyte promoted from select team to us world cup roster like permanent or just to work out with the the roster so they've been made the final cut yet and i think in fact we're gonna get. We've got a bengal over to come join us. During the final hour who's right there embedded with the team in vegas but michael what team desert play for san antonio who is the coach of the san antonio on ios break popovich who was the coach of team u._s._a. Popovich now should there be an extra nod given to somebody like derek quite an edge because popovich's the coach and that could certainly help him and his career with the spurs if he were to make t- goes of course that's all part of it. That's part of the you know up doing favors for your for your own and popovich wanted to surprise. Everybody put derek team because he's a spurt. Shock me at all that happens. That's coaches play favorites and he's gonna wanna his. I think you'll be on the team but if you put him on october so it's one thing if it's the all star game so the head coach of the all star game as the best best record in going in my successfully put on mason plumlee duke and mason plumlee was like the twentieth on the but because he knew from duke he put him on the world cup team so what i'm saying. I don't like that now derek. What i think is a much better player than people realize he was good. Last year is a good defensive player. <hes> people probably have never heard some people who aren't n._b._a. Nerds probably haven't even heard of him but he's a young player drafted a couple of years ago late in the first round right around the josh heart kuzma territory so i wonder if that's something if like if he's going to take for example kyle kuzma spot right. Wouldn't that make you angry yes. Of course i think who's the better player on him. Why took good player by the better but if pop wanted to use that favor because he's hispanic his player that would make me a little upset but i would understand it but you're right doesn't seem fear but unfortunately that's the way it works at business and sports sometimes so we'll see and we'll see if he would take any heat for something like that. I don't think i don't think derek will be on. I think he's a forward right. Mostly afford wing guys a ton of guys. He's he's bigger but he's a guard yeah so here. Here's what this is a one. One gentleman. I mentioned washington post. Bengal ever might join us in the six o'clock o'clock hour. I asked him gimme the final roster for team u._s._a. What's the twelve. You think you're gonna make it. In here. The name she hit back. Let's start with the back first kemba walker yup ozzy automatic kyle lowry sorry now but he's on but he's on deer and fox apparently yes lot showing up donovan mitchell yep jaylen brown so he was one of those kinds of bubbles but okay jason tatum guy but are actually heard. The tatum hasn't looked great yeah there but but that'll be interesting. I think he'll make kristal tin. It's kind of an automatic p._j. Tucker put them on because you need that guy. You need the defense. You can go small with him. He for sure would be my squad. Harrison barnes yep now. Barnes has played for team u._s._a. Before as has played for the world for the olympic team right. I don't think he was on a world cup team and i think he's definitely unreal. He was real. Oh yeah yeah yeah. I mean you were there. You are in rio team. I thought it was the world cup. I didn't think he was on the team. Maybe you're right. Maybe he didn't make the olympic team. He was on the workup tail and then let's see through so he had calc who's making it which would be great and then brook lopez and myles turner would be the center yeah so there that's leaving out a couple of good the players but a lot of guys feel is going to be hurt yeah but i'm hoping that i'm open for the sake of the lakers that makes the team. Just i think it's a really good thing over yesterday. We know how it was for for clayton up getting that basketball rhythm and essentially go right into preseason now the one thing for the lakers and this will be the case for kuzma. He'd be going to china with team u._s._a. Flying back to the states for a couple of weeks and then going back to china yeah with the lakers pilots do it all the time. I'm on tough enough. We peep brands that people are going to make it a thing of the thing that shouldn't be yeah. You'll have time to come back and takes. We've been to china. We came back with three days to get acclimated back to the west coast time. I've i've known i've known some people that have struggled with that kind of time change. I don't think in the leap twenty-four-year-old athlete when we went to one of those did you your sleep pattern. Obviously changes that you go to bed at like midnight able to sleep. Where were you up all night because honestly was fine. It'd be too. I remember quite right to sleep yeah seven a._m. Mike pearson percents producer here. I i dunno. It didn't affect me that doesn't mean it's not gonna say augustine hours ahead of us that have you ever had some crazy travel any cross country or not approachable like into europe or no no not like that not as long not with the time change like that but it does take me at least a day to adapt to yeah your bed. It's a number of reasons why you can't go straight to sleep when you travel like that so it takes time all right. I think they'll be fine fine. Yeah it was used jet lag as an excuse to get back and have a hard time adjusting back the united states time but that's that's able blowing the the travel was so comfortable for somebody's pro yeah and and so they'll live with michael i do say i mean we aren't michael. We are fortunate that we get to travel with the team. <hes> we traveled to private and it's a it's luxurious that it is nice and you. When did that switch for you. When you started like later in your career time lakers we are joined the lakers and we will flying commercial when i own a legacy eighty-seven february of eighty seven. We're still going through l._a._x. Common folks kupa we didn't we didn't have t._s._a.

That's about other than that. What are you gonna watch it on t._v. A law everything mass shark week all the science shows a lot of hallmark lifetime movies piece of course sports sports stuff. I was in a state of depression about a week after wimbledon. After federal blew it again that was up eight seven serving for the match and close it out so i just put in a state of depression for a week overcome some counseling but other than that you know a real nice quiet unassuming summer as as usual. What's the what's the average nine ninety five. What's the average michael thompson day. What time do you wake up. What do you do and when do you go to sleep. I wake up at six. Oh nine in every day doesn't matter what i don't need an alarm just got up at six. Oh nine <hes> get my coffee six. Oh nine something like that's why i was six nine thirteen somewhere around there and get up and i get my coffee turn on <hes> get up and i take and as i'm going through perusing the internet seeing what's going on in the world of sports and the general spend my coffee that i put in the microwave wave and fifty nine seconds to get boiling hot coffee last long. I hate drinking luke warm coffee. I loop one warning hot little little so if you guys like lukewarm coffee room temperature coffee i can't stand that so i put it in the microwave after i make my little cappuccino and get it while bubbling hot last long while i'm sitting and watching my programs maxon the calendar waiting to talk to you now stephen smith and everything so i do that and then <hes> watch all the morning talk shows stephen.

Questionable is my favorite show washed out while i'm eating my champagne nuts yeah so. Is that a perfect day on what so so. I'm telling you live in. Basically you wake up you watch sports yup. You work out once yup and then you watch more sports. Just get my shepherd and not watch a couple of programs that you were saying sign. Every ten days i gotta cuban and hang on the patio smoke cuban right and my wife comes slams the door all right well that the house so that was michael thompson summer ladies and gentlemen how michael how how alert where you with free agency going all the lakers were signing players and i. I was on hoops every five minutes. What's the latest what's the latest and the second. I was just an addict when it comes to free agent signings possible trades and everything i'm a basketball junkie. That's that's right. I was trying to get updated every minute of seem like and how about with clay situation where you like you knew that they were going to offer them a full max but there was some reporting like what didn't happen been the first second frank that it could have. How was that whole thing i had heard like about <hes>. I'd say about fifteen hours before the deadline that wars. We're gonna take care of him and i even suffered that. Devastating injury doctor said he's the comeback at full strength and be good as new as long as he puts the time in the work in which won't be a problem also also knew the warriors <hes> appreciate it everything he's done for that franchise for eight years and they really wanted to him staffed finish their careers there in oakland and to celebrate the warriors signing him to his new the deal. I made my first trip to nobu yeah. We're not there. I don't malibu. I haven't actually been there. I've been to the to the steakhouse. That's next dairy products. The who's who celebrities out there anyway joe lake up the owner. The celebrate klay signing took us out there for dinner. Yeah me klay <hes> and clays brother joe's wife <hes> kirk son the g._m. So we got a real nice dinner celebrating. I ordered <hes>. I had a bunch of sushi but cook sushi. I ate that raw stuff from from the island's. Black people know eat raw fish wright patterson. I don't know i mean on the islands. I guess isn't that part of the fish cooked fish fries aww yeah we don't have on the anyway but as i wanted to be so nice rice that food there's amazing okay so the recent news on a golden state and and just with relevancy to the lakers now being one of the teams that actually is in line to pursue a championship which was going to be the previous couple years. Thanks kevin durant now. He's gone klay got hurt but draymond green sign accession. <hes> some people weren't necessarily sure it was going to come now as opposed to next season michael. What would that piece of information. Tell you about the warriors and what they're looking. I mean draymond side. You know what kind of sounds silly the talk about in these terms terms but one hundred million dollars extension for three four years. I mean that's nothing to sneeze at now. He could have signed. He could have waited. Goodyear had a big year and signed for two hundred for five years so basically decided to take the money now and not take the extra hundred he could have gotten but he figures okay by the time he was okay two hundred are you saying in terms terms of you know i think he would have just been eligible for five hundred based on the ten year the turn what ahead what do you have dental years pursued hundred something like that <hes> because i went up because quite got five for one ninety and i think it was up to five hundred next year because of this out rising salary cap i think he was eligible for that kind on the contrary. You're probably so that's a man that's yeah. That's what you're saying gambling. Look at it this way trudell he could assign five for two hundred but talking crazy this monopoly money here right this crazy money the you think about it but if he he took this money so that means by the time this contract runs out he would've made one hundred eighty two million in his career and plus the so the money well if if we want to be technical about it since it's an extension right. You're basically taking out two years because it's a three year extension so like if you add say let's say he's gonna make twenty thirty a million a year after that then it could end up being one fifty one sixty so he's not necessarily leaving one hundred million on the table might be more like thirty forty fifty chess after i wanna be thirty four when this runs out if he takes care of himself and he stays healthy cassano three contract get some good money so he'll be fine all right on top of your head and i'll give you mine after top four western conference finish regular season. Yes how's everybody. Everybody's healthy lake was number. One clippers number two utah the three and four will be denver. So where do you go and say. I got fifth or six. I think they'll they'll still be good but i think that'd be for six and if blake comes back in march and fully healthy then they can be very dangerous in the playoffs. I think this will be the top four teams. If they're all all healthy they'll be. There are a little stronger than the warriors have now without clay so you gotta get those teams that respect. I've heard different. People say that paul george could be out for up to six weeks starting gordon and that you know that's a chunk of games. That's true how the clippers the clippers are still really good with. Even without paul george you just kind of plug quieted danilo gallinari and ari spot and <hes>. Let's see shake shake. You'll just alexander moves out of the starting lineup that means you got beverly and probably landy landry. Shamet yeah the one two and then i i suppose visa subas. We'll start at the five and what do you think heartless at the four year probably will work with this as a small lineup harkness at four. Maybe patrick patterson who they just signed. Who can shoot shooter for australia or i mean that team without him without georgia's not a top you're right. It's not gonna be out for the first six weeks or whatever you're right. They may be. They may finish third hurt. They may not have enough to make up his start off as fast as so for a regular season team though i don't see that necessarily being better than denver for example who was the second seed last year keeps almost their entire team and as jeremy grant it was a really good player coming out of oklahoma city right not not i think it paul george being out for six weeks or whatever how long it's gonna be gonna hurt them as far as the seating so that might drop them down to third or fourth year and not you know here's the thing about the lakers. I think that if i have to pick who's going to win a seven game series. That's where i'm interested most in the high end of the roster so that's lebron anthony davis. I do think that's the best duo yeah. There are a lot of good deals now. In west berlin hardened clay once he gets back with staff or in this case draymond with steph got lillard and mccollum yeah but to me they're the clear best duo on the best guys around them are there to service them so danny green's play defense shoot. Three's clint cooks there to shoot three's case he there to run and transition play defense and shoot three so so is there to take charges play defense. Get get guys setup on drives the rim and kick out so i don't know if they're gonna finish necessarily with the best overall overall record but i do think they have a chance to be the best team. Those are two different things you don't wanna mess with lebron eighty seven game series man. I know that the competition gonna be utah's going to be much better with mike conley but the are the lakers with a healthy lebron and the rest of the guys know in their role and mainland lockdown because shots consistently lakers are going to be dangerous to deal with so i was thinking about the bron we talk about that. We talked about this a little bit yesterday and what his season is going to be calm. I don't think we saw the bron- play really angry last year no oh he he was pretty controlled by the way controlled for him means twenty eight eight right still one of the best players in the league but i think that we're going to get a bit of that extra up from the bronx we usually see in the playoffs but not every night and nor should he do that every night again. He's thirty five years old but i do think we're going to see some the lebron and that to me is the biggest reason even even including anthony davis would still be like lebron is still the biggest can make the biggest impact in one game how many games you think he's gonna play. Well healthy even gonna be healthy well. How many <hes> will you're on a load management game snow meaning. I don't see him. I don't see either. Davis already said that he's not planning on load managing or sitting out a bunch of games. I'm twenty six years old yeah. He should play eighty two games. If he's healthy yeah for lebron i could see i could see the occasional back to back ah to preserve over the year but i still think that you're you're looking at high seventies you know i don't necessarily think you need to play eighty two but just just calcat michael. Jordan did now he could george. I don't wanna stand okay if you wanna have a load management on these players when i play them less okay tonight lebron you go in twenty two minutes twenty four minutes so so say six not the whole whole game i so. I think that this has been a debate now for a couple of years in the n._b._a. And if you're gonna put your body through what it takes to get ready to play a game you may as well just played ten more minutes. It's when there isn't that big of a difference if you're you're it's all it's the shoot around. It's the weightlifting. It's eighty two games. I'm not saying it's stand this. It's not that it's hard. I how did it if i could do it. Why can't these guys do. I like six times and didn't even think about it and travel commercial but michael yeah play three games the three nights on the road. I don't wanna standard new guys complain about eighty two game schedule for that day bob lanier kareem artis gilmore while frazier all the old timers had to do it trudell l. I'm serious. Why is eighty two games a problem now because you you're on the side of guy should take the nights lafayette actually wanna stand it. I'm actually more or less on your side side of this argument of guys playing more. I don't love the the load management term. I think it can be sort of taking advantage of but i also know a lot of medical people now in the n._b._a. And there's just a there's more and more of this data saying oh okay well look we can optimize the guy in april better if some of the load comes off in january january so there's a little bit of that but when i say load management again i'm talking about. Maybe three games not ten not especially like think about this if you wanna make the all n._b._a. Team that's the tiebreaker right and i think a lot of these guys still care about their legacy and and take out take out just a winning it being good for your team but the the only part of it where i would push back. A little bit is again if you missed. Let's say you're lebron miss back to back in november. Maybe that's the time where you were coups against the play thirty five minutes and it's really kind of keep on getting reps that you're going to need him later in the season. We're maybe anthony davis. Then is really going to take over the offense. I think periodically against certain matchups on backpacks. I don't mind seeing it here and there but i'm with you. I'm with. I don't like generally speaking that guys are looking for excuses not to play right as opposed to look. Look i got this. I know how to manage my body because really michael. They don't practice that much either. Guys kobe was a twenty eight year old veteran right now he do that. You think kobe would skip games if he's one of the things that kobe kobe won things i <hes> westbrook doesn't sit out well. I agree westbrook. That's one of the things i like about him. He shows up and one of the things i remember that michael jordan famously used to say well. You know why are you. Why are you playing like this and and he's like look there might be some kid in the stands stands for hasn't seen me before and when you watch michael jordan right. That's what i want you to see in. Kobe was the same way and i always loved that about kobe and i think for the most part lebron. His career missed very few games. He's always wanted to put on a show. It's just there's some there's some kind of balance with all the new information in the medical data that we have everything i mean there's extra media. There's extra courses etc media talk. When when michael thompson class a different beast pull the guys have a lot more business going on that has nothing to do with basketball understand what it should be all about the court and fans but if you're leading your division asian and you're going into phoenix. This game doesn't matter why regain macron mike. That's a good point. There's one other thing though i have to say about this. Michaels not gonna like it. I'll do it next. It's thompson chevelle filling in on donald show. We're down in orange county this week wrapping up o._c. Week shot at the crystal palace for putting everything together <hes> here once again is mentally.

Mason and Ireland (HR 2)

"Hey i've been looking forward to this mason ireland e._s._p._n. L._a. We got our guy. The festiva from pregame.com back on the show this year to talk about all things is las vegas fez how you been i've had a great summer and what better day to talk after last night's lackey and crazy preseason football right that's that's where i wanna start okay so i texted you last night because i didn't know what vegas would do. What steve is talking about is before orthon game because of field conditions the raiders in the packers they were playing in winnipeg up in canada so ridiculous decided to go to an eighty eighty yard field so fez once that happens. I just want you to take me through today. Pull the game off the board. Do they just adjust the line. What at vegas do you when the announcement came that they were going to eighty yard field. If it had been a regular season game i think they would have pulled it off the board and evaluate it but because because the limits are so low and preseason and the announcement came so close to kick off the vegas books just moved on action so that total was sitting around thirty eight and money just poured in on the over on the eighty yard field total went up the forty inapt right before kickoff and obviously those betters and they shortened field had the right idea and they got the money last night a big story there felt preseason of course cam newton going down with an ankle injury so much oh that the line for the week one game against the rams is now off the board when you look at these week one lines in the n._f._l. The games aren't until september fifth for the opener and then the eighth for the rest of them. How soon should fans put down their money or how long before you know your way to see if the lines move because it is a few weeks away complicated right right so i can tell you that the sharps were banging carolina plus three against the rams there they know that the rams did great to start the year last year but they did have a cupcake schedule on with mcveigh playing almost no one in preseason carolina plus three look like solid value no no longer so with cam you know with <hes> possibly playing and being somewhat compromised week one similar game indianapolis at the chargers and andrew luck on a play. You tell me right because there's really we're not sure. Steve physics brigade dot com is our guest. You're listening to mason in ireland on k. s._p._n. Los angeles fez another weird thing and this happens in the preseason. I remember a few years ago. They cancelled the hall of fame game one year because they didn't like the field last night. The rain was bad at the ravens eagles game and they he just decided to call it. What happens in vegas in a rain shortened game because i know a lot of people bet on baltimore. Weren't they going for like their fifteenth or sixteenth preseason win in a row yes john. Harbaugh is the king of august. He is no straight up thirteen and two against the spread and frankly he's always he's been good in the preseason now. I don't know if i can say sixteen straight up. I guess i can say that because he won the game but the way we keep score in vegas. He's still only fifteen in oh because it's a refund vegas books have to really requirements for game to be action and football it has to fifty five minutes and the game has to be he played on in the city that it was supposed to be played so by that letter of the law that green bay oakland game is still played in winnipeg and it went the full distance. There was action however baltimore philly because it it was eleven minutes short. It did not get to the fifty five minute mark and that is a refund on all bets waiters switching gears from sunday to saturday. I'm fired up because my michigan wolverines or number seven in the preseason a._p. Poll when you looking at these college football bets and europe a fan of michigan or u._s._c. or a team that has a chance to maybe make the playoff. Is there a bad out there to make the college. Football playoff is that's. That's something that fans should put money down on for their team. Yeah and that's one thing that has become more prevalent vegas. Huelva teams make the playoffs often. I liked this bet because you do you really want to bet on michigan to win it all with clemson and alabama sitting there thinking about it you could make the final four and be a four to one underdog in both games so essentially you're your chances of winning are still very small so betting if you're bullish on a team that's not clemson or alabama betting leading them to go ahead and make the playoffs. I think makes a lot more sense. We're talking to steve fezzet from pregame.com says the big college game. This weekend is miami and florida. I got a new coach. Last time i looked at this line is moved but i saw florida by seven and a half. What's the right side of that game in your opinion i would say hey. The total is the right side in this game specifically the under because let's face it whenever you have to start a week early that's always <hes> compromises your schedule schedule your game planning and the like and i can tell you this total which was in the low fifties has been bet down to forty six and i expect a conservative start to this game so i would look under twenty three and a half first half and i certainly would agree with the under forty six games going back to the n._f._l. For second what's the best when you look at at at the the the season long beds either. I think you like to look at the win totals or i know you can bet a team to either. Make it or go to the super bowl. What team provides the best value bet in your opinion if you wanted to put money on a team to either win their over under win total or maybe make it to the conference championship championship game in the super bowl. Is there a team you like more than any other you know. I like the pittsburgh steelers. I think there'd be an overlooked with all this cleveland brown hype that is occurring hiring and frankly the sharp money's been coming in pittsburgh on the season win number so both cleveland and pittsburgh or line at nine wins but if you wanna play pittsburgh over nine and you've got to pay extra vigorous extra juice right now risk one hundred thirty to make a hundred and yet if you look at the odds for those two teams i'm just gonna talk about making the playoffs here here both pick them to make the playoffs but pittsburgh you only have to lay mines at dollar ten to make the playoffs cleveland actually have to lay my dollars thirty so think about this cleveland is supposed to win fewer games. They're both in the same division yet. Cleveland's being priced like they're more likely to make the playoffs that makes no mathematical sense. I pittsburgh berg to make the playoffs. Fans are obviously betting on preseason football now and maybe on which teams might win the world series but it is the dog days of august and you have things like little league baseball on e._s._p._n. Does the ocho what's something really deep you can't you can't bet the little league world series kanye you you can bet you know it's a travesty. I go ahead and get on my soapbox. Bet on the little league world series it is horrible no why the limits are so oh they need to increase the clothes can spend more time and actually make money how deep down the like. What's something that i can bet on if i'm a a sports fan over the next two weeks here in august kenny bet dancing with the stars fez is that on the board there are some not in vegas but some places you can bet like entertainment retainment bet but i gotta talk about this golf tournament. I'm not a golf expert. Seventy five million dollars on these guys are playing for and the format was such that if you had the best year you became you got to start out ten under par and because of that it's almost like you had to get out your abacus with your handicapping because you had to go ahead and handicap the head start that <hes> <hes> the best golfers in the world were getting over the field. This was arguably the most complicated pricing. Are you sick of a golf tournament. I have ever seen yeah it's weird and they're playing for an extremely money. Okay so as a as an n._b._a. Employees fez. I cannot bet on anything n._b._a. Eh but we keep hearing here in los angeles that this is the line. We keep getting depending on where you go in vegas. It's either the lakers or or the clippers that that are the favorite is that accurate or they the to the money's coming in and so far people like that is accurate so far people like both teams. The clippers had the lowest odds there plus three fifty a risk a hundred you make three hundred fifty. The lakers are four to one by one hundred to get back. Four four hundred the third choice is milwaukee at six to one but what's interesting so the clippers the lakers are very very close in terms of future odds but in terms of season winds and expected the clippers are supposed to win fifty four and a half games. That's our n._b._a. Over under the lakers after bogey went down. It dropped another half game. The lakers are only supposed to win. Fifty the game so the expectation is that the clippers are going to have a better regular season but then the lakers may be able to turn it on compla- off time. I think that's what the lakers people. I don't wanna play lebron. Anthony davis and a seven game series of really hard says we're looking forward to get in with you every week this year. Thanks as always into good luck this weekend. My my pleasure always great being on yourself. There's so much from pregame.com ben. I want to read this heading league bas- yeah. Can you believe that i could do that so greg. You bet on little league baseball. Yes you know somebody here actually used to bet on little league baseball. <hes> michael funchess used to bet on literally seen and we have this michael. We have this mythical money game sponsored by the bicycle hotel casino gregson first place your all the money on and we've been yelling. We've been yelling yelling at him because he never bets. Why don't you all the time. Why don't you bet on the little leaguers stepping up a little bit absolutely not because i don't bet on things i know how many more high wanders tennessee head uh-huh okay so the other bet we made at the start of the year. Tell me i wasn't gonna win. This bet bergman says i bitch dodger catchers total hit more than twenty five home runs and i went the dodgers catcher russell martin and austin barnes. You're out of your mind. Give me ten grand on the under yeah then they call will smith who have have a twelve homers and great. Can i can promote this right. Will smith's going to be on the show monday. Yup will smith show on monday. New dodger catcher will smith. It's going to be on the show escort. Coleman could get guys. Hey i want. I want to get this <hes>. This story reported ben and i've got to be a little bit careful here. As i've talked about this story before the i work sometimes at spectrum sports net and as most people know at the end of last season kelly tenant who i worked with at spectrum. She's not there anymore. Accuse luke walton who was lakers. Coach is the sacramento coach of sexual assault today a couple hours ago the n._b._a. Released this announcement and i'm just going to read it and i'm not gonna aditorial is it because i know both sides and it's just a weird story for me to talk about but i want to report this to you. <hes> they issued a statement that said they have completed tweeted. She kelly made her accusation. On april twenty second <hes> she filed a civil lawsuit against luke walton and held a press press conference in which she described claims of sexual assault verbal and physical harassment and unwanted physical contact over three year period <hes> the investigation conducted by both a sacramento law firm and the n._b._a. Results we'll release today. Here's the exact wording of the results during the investigation more than twenty individuals were interviewed including coach walton and numerous documents and other relevant materials were reviewed. The investigators made repeated attempts to interview kelly tenant but through her the council she declined the opportunity to participate. The investigation is considered closed unless new evidence becomes available so that investigation is over. Luke walton has been cleared for now unless any new evidence becomes available and luke now goes back to coaching doing the sacramento kings when we come back. I'm going to marry benz two biggest passions sports and entertainment e._s._p._n. L._a. mason it's an ireland show ben. Lyons is filling in for mason. Did you see the announcement pin that the rock dwayne johnson made yesterday. Is he making another. They're high profile movie. That will be really exciting until you actually go and see the movie and your i._r._a. Knock it off no. He announced yesterday that starting writing this sunday ballers on h._b._o. Will begin its fifth and final season. It's so this is the last season of ballers on h._b._o. It's a show about a fictional football player named spencer stress moore who played for the dolphins and then became an n._f._l. Agent it's been one of h._b._o.'s highest highest rated half hour shows over the last five years. Now got me to thinking what's been the best t._v. Show ever about sports. I'll give you some suggestions or you can go off the board but here's six. I came up with okay. Cat the white shadow. Were you too young for that. I was too young for an its initial run but they used to replay it on n._b._a. T._v. late nights so you watch game time for the sixth time time you're like oh watch. The white shadow story about a place called carver high school which was in los angeles and there was a washed up n._b._a. Player named ken reeves chiefs played by ken howard that his old buddy went it was a he's a white guy and he was an all black high school and he went and got his buddy to coach the guys at carberhighcbs so it was stories of of a high school basketball team very well done bruce paltrow quinn as gwyneth paltrow's. Dad was the creator and executive producer of that show friday night lights clear is full hearts can't lose yeah friday night lights was a movie that they turned into a t._v. Show and did an excellent job on both and the movie and the tv show while now go back and say he's one of the great not only sports shows which is great t._v. Shows of recent memory struggled to find its audience at the time and i believe had a few seasons on n._b._c. was cancelled. There was such an uproar they brought it to the audience network directtv okay so that just shows how passionate ashington fans wherever you go back and look at the town on that show from michael jordan and minka kelly to coach you know what's his name kyle chandler on ninety the way amy garment is so many guy running gesture kids who played right the bad guys breaking back great talent on that show and still <unk> holds up. What are the great pilot episodes that may be the answer but been you know i would not make this list without mentioning. There were two seasons two two and only two where the great aaron sorkin wrote a sports show. It was called sports night. It was basically behind the scenes at sportscenter it had felicity eliciting huffman and josh charles and peter krause and josh molina and was quick yeah writing very well done very well loved by again didn't quite find its audience to stick around too long. Well what happened was the west wing took off. He had sportsnight west one one. That's probably are we not on your list is like okay hold. I'll i'll give you more or less is the one that was just wrote down. Okay which was robert will as a sports agent robert wilson dodger game. They were first month in l._a. Sandra was his assistant was great. Yeah that was a very good show not sure if that show he wanted in the metoo movement of that show shirts wentz appeared on our lists yeah okay. I didn't see a lot of the show but i saw some. I'm episodes and i thought it was good. Do you ever watch the league about fantasy football though i get it people love it the most amazing show you like the lead. I love awesome so good. So matthew berry had a couple of cameras on the league not really about fantasy football though right a little bit i mean there's so always the vehicles light which they launched the characters and then the last one i put on there was highly underrated eastbound and down power viner leave the one show you mentioned where you can go as a character of that show on halloween and people know what you're doing like kenny powers hi. It's a good one. He's terrific. <hes> like i saw danny mcbride ally she was on. I guess what are the talk shows. Recently connie west approach tim about danny playing connie west in a biopic about connie as life. That's so kind yeah. I guess danny lives in south carolina now. Now i know that your boy he is weird. You play me in the story of my life. No they should they should they should get chris. Read the guy who impersonates s._n._l. Danny mcbride were great. How listen you mentioned a lot of greats. Those sport court shows playmakers was another one had short live only one year v._n. Yeah i can't even think of that. Many other one's missing a bunch of coach. I mean in with greg cote very tempting. You guys executive producer. That team bought a minor league hockey team and i did a story on k. Cow so i got to go to the set of coach on warner warner brothers <hes> they were very nice. Shelly for bray who played christina elson wife on that show is super big show he goes on for number seasons by mill is going quite mythical minnesota state now going network by network but just shut but sport by sport and talk to thinking of scripted versions of rock meyer your buddy i liked you're missing hanging with mr cooper. We're had holly robinson and that was a great show by the time as well yeah. That was the other one time with reggie theus as the head coach reggie theus thought they were amazing shows kidding but that was what i grew up of watching it was like saturday morning wasn't johnny bench on a show called the baseball bunch or something before my time. Mr cooper was a real game with mr for was terrible. No it was it was fantastic. Yeah mark curry is that his name robinson that shows off so what would you based on this real show show you're talking about failed and broken dreams and young people finding themselves housing all the issues of <hes> what it's like to raise kids and on a budget and it's just really a beautiful show and <hes> yeah right started is a book by a guy named busby singer who and when it came out when the book came out it went to number one in the new york times bestseller list but the people in midland and odessa were mad had at because they thought he was too honest. They thought he revealed too much about their culture. You worked down in texas in beaumont friday. They night lights games. I went to they were towns that had twenty thousand people and somehow twenty-five thousand with short for high school football. I went outside of austin. I think it's i don't know if it's called called eastlake or i don't know it's a big drew brees win ties score tackles yeah in texas. I went to friday night lights and there was a chick-fil-a in the stadium for the high school and i was like oh. This is a little bigger than my little private all boys go. I went to many many remember van rural right from c._n._n. Inch vinyl and i worked together at a small tv station in texas and we used to do a friday night high school football show in atv if you can get like a fifteen share that's a monster number the super bowl if your team's playing in the super per bowl like last year when the rams were in the super bowl we probably in los angeles did about a forty share which is unheard of that's like the most watched show of the year van van and i did a friday night high school football show and one week we did in eighty three shit eighty three percent of the t._v.'s on in the city so i like to talk about football and how it's going to look different in years to come. It's never going to go away. It's gonna look different because it is so ingrained in this country in a deep spiritual emotional economic dependent way. It can't just disappear because of safety or social justice issues football will exist list how it will exist may look different when you hear those stories of john island point eighty five shares unbelievable. It's crazy yeah nothing new with me. It was just the fact that we did a high school football show. Hey remember this commercial. The i've been too long gear that is singing to be. I know small straw came a habit to me. <music> in in the first voice was phil jackson. Singing kobe followed by wallace. Paul pierce was in there too. That was a nike commercial about love to hate kobe who turns it's forty one today a coming up we will have the opposite the one guy we know that loves kobe more than any other living human being. Maybe even more than kobe loves. Colby will join us next fasttrack in twenty minutes e._s._p._n. L._a. mason and ireland show ben lines information and it is kobe bryant's forty first birthday and we would be remiss you know because it is it friday if we did not bring on the person we know to be the world's biggest kobe bryant fan ladies and gentlemen. I bring you international film star o'shea a jackson junior shay what is up what's going on man. I'm i'm enjoying kobe's birthday. You know me and my baby girl and watching youtube videos all day. I feel like i should congratulate you then. I realized you've done nothing worthy of congratulation rooted for recover from day one well that's easy to do because he was such a great player so shea when you think back to all the memories and all the moments and all the reasons why you love kobe on a day of his birth what comes to the top of the list you know i've had a plenty of chapionships way koby you know unlike your new york your next but i've had plenty of championships koby <hes> but i gotta go with the sixty point game against utah. There was nothing like that night. It felt like a playoff game and it was just so electric in the air and to see him do what he did it today opera ever remember and i was there and that makes it better yeah. I keep trying to describe to people what that was like. Picture took a picture outside and you couldn't walk on chick hearn. You couldn't walk on the street because it was just packed with so many people and then he delivered sixty on his last night. Hey we were talking earlier about kobe certainly a discussion for greatest laker ever. I think if we ask dad she's daddy's ice cube the international well now. I gotta describe a cube as the mastermind behind the big three but before that he was a he was a music mogul and any film star. If we ask your dad shea he would probably say the greatest laker ever is magic or kareem because that's the team grew up with. Would you say it's kobe. Would you put kobe that high. Do you think he's the greatest laker <hes> you know my dad would probably have it between magic and kobe <hes> all respect to kareem in but you know when you when you get drafted onto the lakers i it's just it's different <hes> but i i still think he would give it to kobe the same way that i would. The accolades is that magic jonathan has are incredible but then when you put him up against the mamba you know twenty years in a third on the scorn warning. Let is just so many so many accomplishments kobe is brought in the type of mentality that he brought to other players in the league you know he you really lead by example during his team u._s._a. Day and i felt he made <hes> the league better so i gotta give it to coke shea. When you look at the twenty year career kobe and you know the first three years he was finding his way was so young obviously the airballs in utah and then you look at the last six years when his teams averaged thirty four wins a game what what does peak kobe for you because the end the beginning rather pedestrian look at the heart of kobi's prime. What is p kobe for you. <hes> <hes> you know i it really pains me because we didn't have the team around him that he deserved at that time but oh six kobe bryant the best basketball player i've ever seen in my life that that was <hes> when he was just on a a scoring rampage right i think he had i think he had eleven straight forty. Point games and there were four five fifty point games in there. It's just when you think about what he did to those poor mavericks without even playing worth the eighty one that that they'll therefore guard to get up eighty one points. I it's unreal. I know devon booker got doc devin he but he doesn't like so. I don't know what to do with kobe went almost one he'd call for him. We're we're taking shape jackson junior shape. What <hes> you know the thing that's dividing laker fans now is whether or not they should consider dwight howard as a possible replacement smith demarcus cousins. Where are you at on that. You know <hes> i feel terrible for bookie to get that injury and i believe it was either the day before his birthday or or something like that. Yeah you know it's just bad luck. You know <hes> yeah. I'm part of those laker fans who are not really that happy about thinking about why but at this point we need a body you know we need somebody to get in there <hes> blocks and boards. I'm not asking you to shoot anything. Please get your own and if we do end up with the white. He can't wear number twelve. You gotta come in here with a whole different mentality a whole different well because we you left bad taste in our mouth especially since the year you were here was the year that koby tore his achilles so we we don't really like you too much you. Oh you gotta curious up then. Where are you on that. Who do you think the lakers should bring in. I had a chance to sit in front of the guy. I think the laker should bring in on a flight recently and he was very attentive to his newborn. I'm gonna go with kenneth for read. I love harry quality. Quantity guy was really kind in a cabin to everybody about his baby crying and stuff and you seem like a real good good head on his shoulder so i'm going kenneth three. Hey chef forgot to tell you this. I meant to text you on my. I was on vacation last week and i finally saw long shot the movie you're you're in with charlie stare and seth rogan men. You are great in that movie not good great you it like you almost steel that thing and they're great. That's a a really good movie congrats to you man. Thank you man i. I really appreciate on my baby girl to pick her up. I really appreciate it. You know it's <hes> you gotta oughta be a scene stealer. I always say if you can't be luke skywalker. You'd rather be on solo because everybody wants to be han solo so you know it's an honor to so you say that and i hope i get y'all more share. You'll love this. I don't think i told you this story editor. John appreciate this but when that movie was coming out and i was talking to the p._r. Department at lionsgate about doing some coverage on film and they say oh yeah we see that o'shea goes on seven tele. Why does he love coby so much. Everyone ruin at lionsgate. I guess it just started like literally at the junkin. He's like kobe and he goes into the elevator when he catches an elevator and the last second so where where do you think this deep love and admiration for kobe. Brian comes from beyond just simply oh he was great and i love the lakers. Well you know i <hes> i just admire kobe because he's always been an inspiration for me. You know his dad was in the league before him and i'm sure turner when he picked up the basketball he had to deal with a lot of the same things that i have to deal with it when you've got people saying oh you know going in your dad's footsteps and all that and and he was able to take his family's name in the legislature new heights and that's really my inspiration with with my work and so you know i take that mama banality everywhere. I'll walk on set and let them know kobe's here. You know toby's iraq and that's just how you gotta do you gotta. Let them know that you to back and his work ethic you. Anybody should be able to take any profession because you can always be better shape well. It's a long shot you can watch it on pay per view right now and on demand and the d._v._d.'s are out and we thought it would only be right shade and bring you on kobe's birthday so thanks for doing this man thing ben. Lyons was born in one thousand nine hundred eighty. He wanted the lab mix championship nineteen seventy-three have a good day. Go like koby's birthday shay so i'll let you this one. Oh shae jackson junior fasttrack coming up in ten read happy birthday kobe e._s._p._n. L._a. Today it's ben lyons and ireland and we're getting ready for fast-track coming up and around five minutes up bent. We were talking in the week about the greatness of clayton kershaw and he's really one of his best years. He's he's pitching now. He's not just trying to blow everybody away. He's thirteen into his e._r._a. Since the all-star break has been minute i and i asked the question he passed sandy. Koufax all time wins and asked the question concur shop be considered the greatest dodger pitcher ever. He's won three saying wards awards. He's won forewarn spinal cords if he doesn't break through the post season no because it's not only about not breaking through in the postseason for kershaw. It's been that he's had opportunities in the postseason and has been pedestrian. I mean that game on the road in saint louis when he got shelled in. What was it thirteen right that stays with you the rest of your career to the point so it's not like an ernie banks situation who just never played in the postseason season. It's not a ken griffey junior situation who they had a little run in seattle but he never really got there or how to show kershaw's had shots and he's been bad so he has to get over the home if you are going to put him up there as the greatest dodger pitcher ever when you have other guys like don drysdale and sandy colfax facts who have been superheroes in the postseason right so i'm with you. I think that if you don't have postseason excellence on your resume it's hard to call to to include you in conversations about the best time when you have postseason garbage on your right and and so but i heard something this week that almost chairman because you and i are the same both we value rings and championships. We think they're important. Philip rivers was on. Dan patrick's t._v. Show and he was asking him about tom. Brady and rivers made a really good point about brady. He said he was he remembered watching that super wall against seattle when seattle was on the two yard line and they hadn't done in yet and one of the announcer said you know if radi wins the title he'll go down on is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and listen to what river says. This actually made me rethink my position on how important championships are here's philip rivers. I remember thank thank you when when <hes> when <hes> the patriots beat the seahawks when the seahawks when they had the interception against the seahawks don't there on fourth of what and that gave them what their fifth championship right thank you. Everybody say he's now the greatest of all time and i thought to myself. I thought he was one of right. I mean how do you ever decide that. It's like the old michael jordan you're right. We can talk about that forever to but i always thought he was already one of tampa because they intersect with the now the days what is worse the seahawks were ran ended in and the seahawks were the one brady just played exact same game. He not anything different you know but it is. It is funny how that works so i don't. I don't look at that. That's why i always think goes right there in the next tune so i think he's got a good point if kershaw were to pitch a really good game and the dodgers were to lose two to one and kershaw. Let's say they gave up two unearned runs. You and i would probably come in the radio and go yeah. I still can't get over that hump but he pitched the same game. Look like life sometimes is really about. We're getting down or not you know the idea of now. He was <hes> kershaw. It's that he hasn't gotten it done. It's that he's been bad if brady went out there and play a horror his double in the now season what it is in the radio. I get what rivers is saying. He's right in nat will malcolm butler makes that pick now all of a sudden he's better that doesn't really make sense but if brady had gone out and historic been historically bad in his postseason performances you couldn't put him as one of the greatest of all time. Even the patriots had somehow won those games so great. I'm gonna bring this full circle and i'm going to tie it to tonight. Okay tonight. It's either stadium. They dodgers opening series yankees. These are the two teams with the best records in baseball. The dodgers hundreds of eighty eight wins. The yankees are are second with one hundred dollars to get in the building tonight. Citizens eighty five and eighty three. Is that what it is. Okay so dodgers dodged eighty-five yankees have eighty-three hinge in review is pitching tonight greg. I have both said he's on a sign young type season if game one one of the playoffs work tonight we'd be true but if you gets lit up tonight the yankees beat him up. Kershaw has been pretty unhittable since the all-star break we you and i talked about the other day. He's been great if you pitches poorly tonight and then kershaw kershaw who pitches on sunday tony gots can pitch on saturday kirsch pitches on sunday and mows down the yankees. Don't we have to alter position. Don't we have to reconsider starting kershaw hershon game one well it may be because this wouldn't just be hundred rio getting blown up this would be his second blow up in the last two games he would also on the road he blows up but but he's fantastic with his numbers are just a huge difference between home and away so it makes more sense to have them at home but if he gets blown up at home against the yankees then yes there's the the second half of the season has started to get to them and walker bueller should be in this conversation. If we're talking about one at dodger stadium he gets right his splits. It homer homer for pretty insane right yeah so ben ruins insane. Everybody's rice okay. Let's say everybody's healthy and everybody's on full rest because because they're they're twenty games up in their division so they can. They can time this thing in pitch me and you in the last week of the season if they went to it doesn't matter everybody's healthy. Everybody's he's fully rested. Who gets the ball game one. Whatever gives you the chance of getting three starts in the series so if kershaw has to go one five is the current e._r. A leader in the favorite to win the same number one. He's really he's still my number one. He has its crank postseason. We gotta ride this out. He's my number one well. Maybe the reason you said that you can then pitching game game. Seven now game two becomes heart because walker buehler's a kid so you probably want to pitch him at home but then you take review who's been pretty much unhittable at home. Who do you pitch in game but then you get you get reunion game six so six game game. Six is a deciding game game. Three cannot be a deciding game so i would go. I'd go kershaw bueller and go to you. If you want to pay for it. You want to pitch game six three and six gathering not very important. Probably not we probably gangs too is probably going to start game six because your brian patrick chilling game for right or you would chew starts out of you and i wanted to. Maybe three starts out clayton. It's hard if you do pitching game to greg. I don't agree with kershaw being the number one starter there because right now but that could change even so. I still think that you want you want to start him in that third game because the third game is is basically a game one all over again. You have to win game. You have to win romeo well. If you're up to oh you can go. You can tie series tied to too because if it goes home field orange home field advantage so you still want. I like having him be that number one starter again but on the road it's that's difficult place to go play. It's a good it's a good problem. The have the that's why tonight's game is significant guys tonight and <hes> and then for baseball just feels like there's like energy in the city around baseball spall deepen the season when the yankees come to town right and also a side note about sunday's game. You know a lot of people <hes> complained that they can't watch the dodgers if they don't get <hes> sports net l._a. Sunday there on sending a baseball dodgers yankees sunday night baseball on e._s._p._n. Pre-game show starts at four o'clock.

And one more thing for you before we get into this Jessica Mendoza dodgers sound and I WanNa talk about last night's game. This is an announcement. It's a declaration of deliciousness right now. Garlic butter is taking over at churches. Starring Churches Five Dollars Shrimp tender platter for garlic butter. Shrimp two tenders fries and slaw and biscuit. Churches bringing that down home flavor. So Jessica does it was on. I take today. We're GONNA do this. I WanNa talk real quick about the dodgers. Wrap up what Bob said. Play this Jessica sound give my own thoughts then will I? WanNa talk about last night's game and then before we go to break. I WanNa talk about bomber buying the forum at how much of a middle finger this is. I mean bombers a bowler. I give them that. We'll get to that in a second and I would guess it's infuriated people in Southern California. Because if you're anything like Greg when I texted that then my guess is you're not going to be happy about it. So we'll get to. That in a SEC is gonNA join us to talk about that as well. We'll talk some basketball with him to Lakers and Clippers but Jessica does it was on. I take and this is what you're going to hear repeatedly from baseball people. You heard some semblance of it from Bob who was just on with us. You heard it from Pedro Mora who was on with US last week. You heard it from Tim. Kirch who was on with us the week before that there is only one outcome that is satisfactory for the dodgers. What'S THAT JESSICA. When you think about the dodgers we've talked about this. I mean the Kirk Gibson. Home run is the replayed. The dodgers are so sick of seeing because all they want and it is not just get to the world series. They've got to win at. The pressure is an all time high. And it's been there for five years now but it has never been higher molly than now being to get. Mookie BETTS TO HAVE DAVID PRICE. I mean this team has never been better in my opinion. So not only. Is this a world series best team without a doubt in the National League on paper but if they don't win it's a failure not within La within all the baseball and the expectations that are now on this team? So that was Jessica Mendoza. I take Burbot. You have been a lifelong dodger fan. I don't know anyone who is actually a bigger dodger fan than you. I like that. Thank you is this. The best dodger team ever. That's what she's saying. I mean ever. Going back to the fifties and sixties. I mean to me I mean. I wasn't around four hundred modern history modern history. Let's go let's go. Let's just say post one thousand nine hundred seventy in my opinion yes. I have never seen a team that is as complete as this. And you know what? What's crazy there somewhere steve? Garvey is listening to this radio. Station and writing is cursing your name. I mean. Those teams weren't all that great one world series but they weren't supposed to At the same time last year was the best dodger team that I'd ever seen and they just made better by adding David Price and Buki pets. So yes this is the best dodger team I have ever seen on paper and if they if these two guys do what they're supposed to do it is the best team ever Jessica's absolutely right. It was a failure in two thousand seventeen when they didn't win. That one's a little more understandable was failure in two thousand eighteen. When they didn't win it was a failure last year when they didn't win. This is absolutely a failure if they do not win. See I don't look at it as a failure and twenty seventeen. They lost to a better team. Two thousand eighteen. They lost well. They lost to achieving team. But we thought they were the better team Technically you're right it is. They did lose twice but the red sox were a better team even on paper. I thought last year or two years ago they were last year was a failure but last year showed is the randomness. What I always talk about the randomness of the postseason Major League Baseball. It's Kinda like hockey in a lot of ways right. You run into a hot pitcher. You run into a hot goalie and all of a sudden everything is turned on its head. And that's what happened to the dodgers last year and especially in a short series. So what you try to do. Is You try to augment the roster as best you can and build up that roster to take some of the randomness out of it. I mean as best you can. And that's why Andrew Friedman is a wizard was able to pull off some stuff here this off season that only a wizard could pull off and he is incredible and every day every dodger fan should be thankful that he's the guy running your organization despite the fact that they haven't won yet. Yeah I love Andrew Friedman but yeah. The baseball playoffs is a crap shoot. Just you're right. The kings as an eight seed won the Stanley Cup. It's a crapshoot in those types of leagues. It's really only socials last year. Let's face it. They weren't the best on even with Strasbourg. And what's his face pitching at the top of the rotation Corbin Jasmine Sherzer Max. Sherzer Max Scherzer. Yes right but yeah. If you're the wildcard team you're the hot team coming in. Usually and that happens all the time. The giants won as in as a wildcard teams faced number of the wildcard. That's just how it works in those type of sports. It's not like basketball and football where the best team usually wins. Yeah I mean I I would say in the NFL. There's more randomness than the NBA's one game but the NBA. There's rarely randomness like think about it in the NBA. What who are the the random champions that we talk about all the time Dallas Pistons and the Mavericks? That's it those are the ones that you're like. Oh yeah that was random like they look the pistons were good. Don't get me wrong. They had sustained success. They went to another finals and lost in seven games to a great spurs team. But so maybe. They weren't as random. In retrospect as you look back right because they had sustained success but Dallas was the mavericks. Absolutely the You know the I mean. They've lost the first finals. And then the second one when they won the next year after that they were nowhere near the type of team that they were and having been that. Since I mean now with Lucon Porzingas. They're hoping to finally build back. But you're right in basketball th- that's the whole thing. Is that that the teams that the top generally tend to win? Like that's the reality of it. I mean think about it. You had eight Knicks team play in the finals. Once but that was the strike shortened year and then the rockets is a succeed won the championship. But they still drexler. And you know a team want to know Jordan. Yeah Yeah Yeah so so I know Jordan right right. So that's the dodgers does somehow. Don't come through all this. This team should and what Mendoza saying is true to that for Baseball. In general the fact that they were built this whole team and just added two guys that are cy young winner and an MVP into a team that has us the last year's MVP and cy young winners a disaster. All right so are you finally with me that you want the Lakers in Pelicans. Are you willing to concede that I was right that this is what you want all right so after seeing it live when they were here at Staples Center? Yes I was with you now watching it again last night when they were in New Orleans one thousand percent. I need to see this times in a row. GonNa lose. No No. You're not. Anthony Davis didn't play Caruso. Didn't play and they still lost then. Yeah they're not GONNA they're not GonNa win that series but still. There was a lot of fun. I just can't stand seeing Zion Williamson on the free throw line anymore. I just can't see it anymore. He's through two games. He's been to the free throw line over thirty times. He's a bull man. He's a bull thirty thing. But here's the thing. Yesterday I look I was up close so I was watching all of it from the court side. A lot of times that the Lakers went to the basket for whatever reason they did a really poor job of defending them they almost let them almost have a free like ride to the rim in a lot of those cases so it was just strange because I remember at halftime talking to Alvin and Alvin gentry. The PELICANS head coach and I said what? What's the thing that sticks out to you the most that you WANNA correct? He's like good Lord. We're just letting them get to the rim all the time like we're not even pushing back on them And I'm like Oh okay so there was some of that more so even than in the first game like the Lakers when they did get to the rim in transition there was nobody there to stop them so they probably should have had more free throws than they had. But I don't think there again like I told you the other day. I don't think there's this great conspiracy. Clearly Zaylon is seeking out contact like. There's no doubt about that right. They were playing a lot of Ole basketball. But you know that in the fourth quarter at one point they the Pelicans had eight total fouls yeah total the NFL. Eleven overall twenty two eight at that point right. And that's that's unbelievable but that's what's happening when you're just letting guys go directly to the rim and not touching them. Yeah that's why they're bad defensive teams whether averaging giving up like one hundred eighteen hundred twenty points a game. That's a series. Yeah no right. And that's why that's why you want them. It's good for the Lakers. To Play Them. It's good for the NBA. If they play them. It's good for the Pelicans to get in right. You Want Zion to get that experience. You want Lonzo and Brandon Ingram and those guys to get that experience Josh heart like. I think it's good for everyone. Much like the trade was good for everyone. I think that experience will be good for everyone. I just love the fact that everybody in New Orleans now saying like Oh my God brandon. Ingram is a good player. Lonzo ball knows how to play basketball. This is unbelievable when all last year everything that every every Laker fan was saying. It's like Lonzo's a good player Brandon. Ingram is a is a future all star all of these things and now I love them but brick brandon. Ingram is taking way more threes than he did last year even when he was turning it up near the end of the season before he had the health scare and he's hitting them at a higher clip like forty percent. He he did take a leap. There's no doubt about that like it wasn't like he was. He was playing better at the end of his laker stint. But he wasn't playing like this was twenty two years old though so I mean excuse for growth right yeah right but like I also think it goes the other way to sometime. Laker fans like he was already this when he was here at the end. No no he wasn't on threes a game and shooting forty percent. No we just saw him like this guy is going to be good once you get to three point shot. Everything's and he's going to the basket and taking a lot of contact to and still finishing so brandon. Ingram is going to have a very efficient game yesterday. The Lakers that are really nice job. Body him up early on he missed his first five or six shots. Yeah the Lakers are really good. Defensive Team like top five. They're they're very good very good How matter you it's warmer. I hate this so much George. Try So it's back so much hiding under a rock for some reason Steve Boulders buying the four. That's one way to get James Dolan's James Dolan off your back right. James Dolan the owner of the Knicks. The under Madison Square Garden owns the forum. He was suing everybody because he didn't want bomber to build his arena. Down there in Inglewood so bombers like fine. I'll just buy you how about that. It's just in the history for the Lakers and the kings and everybody. That's been at that stadium. It's just hurts to know that Steve Bombers GonNA I. He just doesn't deserve it. Don't wait well tones Zell lease. Msg J. Doland do not sell that-that's serve it? I don't know about that whatever. Maybe I don't know like volmer so I don't know if he deserves it. I know in my brain in my brain. I don't care about it. Seems like a really great guy really loves sports all that stuff. I don't want somebody. That's associated with the clippers buying the forum. It just wasn't worth it for me when I when we were talking about that on text last night at the game. I said that's like not only a middle finger to James Dolan like I'm worth fifty billion. Okay so I can buy your your your your arena over there and probably tear it down and build my own arena and then it's also a mental figure to the Lakers. Yes yes yes. That's the showtime Lakers home. That's their where. The affiliates historical venue cut into tears. Down yes I do you know what Steph property is worth now. I want to know what you think. How much do you think it's worth? How much any binding properties probably worth over? A billion is my guest like I get great property now so fi stadium right over there. You guys maybe now it well billy. I don't know I don't know what commercial real estate goes. I'm not you know. Occasionally I watch. Hdtv on like flip or flop concerned commercial real estate. They're doing houses. You know so it like an Orange County or something. You know like they're they`re. They're not flipping the forum college. Tv real fast. Yeah so kids like can we get to call in. We're going to talk to him about this next. Because we get someone to call in a commercial realtor that would give us an idea of what that would actually cost like. Can someone do that? Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn so while you do that. Greg we're going to take a break. Own Yamoussoukro covers the NBA. I one of our MBA insiders covers the Lakers and clippers. We'll talk to about Balmer and what's happening with the arena. We'll talk about the clippers. Were now eight annot With their full squad after a win yesterday. And we'll talk about the Lakers big win yesterday in New Orleans. All COMING UP NEXT. Stick around back and four minutes here on seven ten. Espn presented by progressive. Insurance guests appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line like our buddy own Yamoussoukro who covers the NBA for us one of our MBA insiders and reporters covers the Lakers and the clippers with this year. Now all I was just telling my producer Greg on the air that Steve Palmer's not only giving a middle finger to James Dolan. I can buy you because I'm worth over fifty billion dollars so the hell with you and your lawsuit but also middle finger to the Lakers. Because he's buying their old house fifty nine billion dollars my friend. Let's see I was asked by nine. Billion the change in his pocket is like what a many other owners have total in the NBA. So that's how I mean I've always been. It's always been described to me. Just how rich Steve Bomber is that like basically other people's fortunes in the NBA. It's like basically changed to him and so we're in Hawaii training camp bomber. Talk to us. You know the beat writers and at the time you know that James Dolan feuded come up. And he basically said he delivered a very strong message. Saying I don't think these guys understand that we're fighters we're here to fight all the way to the end. Meaning he had enough change and money to basically outlasts however long Dole and want to keep this fight up and so when this report came out that basically they were going to buy them. Now they're gonNA buy the place for me. That's how much money he has and he's going to get it done. I mean I. I've been told that these talks have been going on for a long time now and so it is. It is at this point now. Where they're nearing the the purchase of the form. And Yeah you know I understand. Laker fans are wondering. Now what is he going to do with the place? How can they? How can you take the old home of the Lakers? And everything like that. But I mean it hasn't been basketball played in that place in a long time and there's going to be just it's going to remain a music venue. That's my understanding. Oh so he's gotTa keep it. Yeah my my understanding and listen. I mean things can always change but you know in talking to people. My understanding is that it's going to remain a smaller music. Venue which is what kind of like the you know. Mashing square garden have been doing with it you know. They renovated it concerts. I mean I saw there about a year and a half ago I saw Phil Collins and it was great. It was great player And I don't think it's going to be turned into. Let's say Madison Square Garden New York for twenty years. You have Madison Square Garden and then you had the theater at Madison Square Garden. A lot of concerts are at and that's where just most recently you know A lot of shows are there and things like that and it's a great menu. This is a bigger venue the form obviously. I think you know at one point if it like close eighteen thousand or seventeen thousand. I think that the probably view this as maybe having smaller concerts than that and then the new arena which will fit eighteen thousand and we'll be state of the art will certainly fit bigger concerts. If need be if I was in like Taylor swift or something like that came through. Wow so basically. He's GonNa make the forum like a second class concert venue more. I think it's still remain a historic in you know a historic music venue. I wouldn't call it second class. I mean obviously the forms the historic Ben And so I think you can still have like You know like in New York Radio City Music Hall their concerts there. Sure on it might not be in Madison Square Garden but I think they could probably have both of them coexist and certainly if bomber. He can do whatever he wants. He's betting down which I think Laker fans have been fearing right. Well that was my question. Like what is he going to tear it down and build his place. They're like I. I didn't I didn't know what the plan was but I guess you know if that's the case that that that's a little better for sure So what are the other hurdles? I guess are there any more hurdles? Then if this is the if this is out of the way no listen when you got this many lawsuits out there and building arena because I was around in in Brooklyn when they had that arena bill for the nets and there was certainly a lot of legal hurdles to jump through right down to the end where there was some guy who lived in an apartment complex where the Barclay center was supposed to be. Bill would not move out and Mike basically finally had to be bought out. He was like the last guy I mean. There's GonNa always probably be more legal hurdles. But I think when you're funded this steve bombers and have as much money as as he does fifty nine point one billion or whatever he's worth I think you know that's what it's going to be able to take to get this arena done and so I think eventually probably get through. But there are several lawsuits. That are out there. And we don't know what the status are but I'm sure you know they want to get this done and bills. I think for the twenty four season on correct right though I think they are looking to start building in twenty twenty one which is coming up pretty soon and so this is the biggest hurdle because I think when you get past James Dolan and everything that James is doing to fight this. That's probably their biggest hurdle. And then it sounds like the process has been going on for a while yet my. I'm curious to see. Yeah he clearly has money. There's no doubt but I just with the price tag is for the forum like I. You Know Dolan driving up the price on him like that's the one thing that I'm curious to see. Let's talk basketball quick while I have you because I don't have a lot more time left. Clippers are now eight no with their full roster What is your sense though of the and I've asked you this a million times but what is your sense of the chemistry of the group now particularly with Paul Anka why they have a a good net rating when they're on the floor together of plus seven but it's not a great net rating when you compare it to some of the other great duos. So how do you view them right now? That's not there yet It's it's getting better. They need more playing time And one thing. I've noticed that in this recent surge there if they won their last four since losing three in a row which was the scene high and then also make got Pat Beverley and Paul George back and now with additions. Marcus Morris Reggie Jackson. They've had their full roster now for four straight games right and they won all four I've noticed doc is playing ten players. He's playing the first starting five. That is Paul. George I Leonard. Marcus Morris Zubec- Patrick Beverley and then he brings in the second unit and he's not really keeping one or the other as far as one of the stores Choir Paul with that second unit. He's running a separate five. And so maybe he's doing that One to kind of bring back that continuity with the second lineup. Yes they do have a new player and Richard Jackson but I think mantras heroin Lou Williams working together and kind of getting their own shots and not having to really share a lot with us. They apologetic winter. That's hoping that second unit and I think the other thing too is getting poll on Kawhi to be on the same page. And maybe that's a something that other teams don't really. WanNa hear that. Their chemistry is not really. They're getting a still working on it. Kawais spoke about it last night and said yes. We still gotta work together. It's coming along but it's not there yet and that's pretty scary if you hear that. Are we sleeping on Lebron for MVP? Yes as I mean. What is that you know I get what he's doing at this age is unbelievable? People caught up in what you're doing and doing it in like a ridiculous amount of few minutes Putting up these crazy numbers and if you look at what mark is doing but for the Lakers to be where they are and Lebron to be this good and keep the pedal to the metal. At all times he has not slowed. Down is incredible And I I worry a little bit personally about because I i. I don't want to see him. Have the pedal to the metal this much before the playoffs at some point. I WANNA see him rampant down a little bit but I think it's been an. Mvp candidate candidacy so far. I mean it's him and Janas to me and I can't wait to see how people are GonNa vote. Yeah I I would lean Lebron as as crazy as that sounds. I've been making that case on radio here for almost two weeks now off numbers or better than than Than Jaanus I mean. We know how bad they are. When he's not on the floor right with Lebron so I just think little things like that you can make a case for him but the the gap is widening at least according to Vegas which I think is fast and I'm on. I'm on the same page with you. I would advocate the when you when you honestly last year. And he's actually gotten better this year right. I felt an argument to make where it's and the bucks of winning that many more games or to really say well how could you go away from God. There was Lebron last year. You know what I mean like. There was that like he was. He was not Lebron because he was clearly hurt last year. It was very evident. I last thing we definitely need. Pelicans Lakers yes in the first that needs to happen told my God yes I mean I if there's one thing I want outside the Lakers clippers in the western conference finals. Pelicans Lakers first round and I wanted that before we saw. All you know how goods I would be. And how good the? Pelicans have been playing. And I get it the Lakers one and the series right but no no. I absolutely want that in the first round. I want all the heat. I want all the drama. I'm here for you. Know Lavar Ball in the watching his play. I'm all about I mean. Forget about nine David. I just want the former Lakers against the Lakers. The Baby Lake. Yeah I want all of that. Yeah I'm with you wholeheartedly. Own thanks for the time. Brother always appreciate it. Thanks for C- About I. I do want to open the phones because now I want some of you were cowards. And you said you didn't want this ion thing but now I feel like you know that you can win and I'm curious to see if you've changed your mind. Eight seven to ten. Espn also we have any commercial realtors out there. That can help us with what the forum will cost the bomber. 'cause great you said two billion that feels high to me. I just number. Yeah that feels high professionals. Yeah neither of US are professionals so there are plenty of them out there commercial realtors and I'm sure somebody WHO's out there's listening can help us out. Eight seven seven ten. Espn and how do you feel if you're a Laker fan about bomber Fi? Buying the form. That can't feel great sedan with you here on Seventeen. Espn thanks to own Yamoussoukro joining his. They're presented by progressive insurance. So I am curious to see how Laker fans feel about this whole forum fiasco because it just sounds like based on the reaction on Social Media Greg earlier today like that it just it. They're they're just beside themselves. Because it just it just bomber. Taking away part of our history as Laker taking it away. He's taking it away. George taking anything away games still happen. They're still one there. Yeah I don't want I mean did you. I mean James Dolan own the forum. You know what I'm saying. But he's never won anything. Yeah but that the whole he's not even he's it's fact that is somebody in. La that owns the clippers and taking over. Where for the Lakers crave? The Knicks are a Baris- but we didn't know that most people didn't know that he boned on forum. That was the thing that just kind of in the background that nobody really knew were no. This is a huge store. That's all over twitter. About how he's he's buying up the the forum and we don't know what he's going to do with it. You don't know what he's going to do with it. I mean it's just have concerts there still. I guess that's Fine. But if he puts red white and blue on and I'm going to be really upset condors hanging over in you know there's no condors would be funny though. I like. It would be hilarious. If he did do that would be. I come on at least laugh about it for like a second. Yeah I would love about. If he has the second round banners up that he can put up in their. Oh Dad getting around. Do they have division? Titles I don't think so I don't know division. Have they made masking? You know I don't pay attention to the clippers. They nothing to pay attention to clearly. Yes I'M GONNA. Hey I'm sorry. Go ahead greg going. Hey Turin's hey what are you? What did you want to talk about I just wanted to talk about. How like you know the clippers all these street signs Streetlights over spotlights grind over glory. I think they should stay in downtown. We should get back or forum and You know look proactive. With this get a history back on skid row. Yeah I mean I don't know I I don't I don't feel like here's the thing like could the Lakers even by the foreign money. I don't even know if there's a possibility I don't know I didn't know it was definite. Either it's alarming. Yeah thank you for call. I just don't know if the Lakers were capable of buying it back you know because there's you know obviously genius the governor right but there's a minority owners. There's a lot of people involve you know right. Ag There's I even if they wanted to like. I just don't think that's an easy thing to pull off whereas bomber acts on his own the clippers who clipper a bomb covers have two division titles two thousand twelve and two thousand fourteen. Yeah so that's a lot of history there for Vinny Del Negro and then doc rivers right right right. Yeah that was. That was a good. That was lob city and all that kind of stuff. Yeah I I mean I assume they had to have at least one wind but I mean you have it. You don't know do you. Why system that DOC would have one right. Yeah the I mean and they they got so you know there you go. They can put those up next to the second round exits. Look at you. You're so so so you're so salty right now. I'm taking forum. I love that place. I haven't a lot of good memory. It is a great venue. I would John There last year. It was great. Yeah I thought the guerrillas there last year it was unbelievable. It was great. It is a great concert. Venue like I'll give Dolan credit for that. He he did turn it into something. That was really nice. I didn't ask you dion waiters or Jerry Smith. You have to pick one. I have to pick one yes. Jr Smith I don't WANNA I don't want any part of Dion waiters. He the guy has been suspended. Three times He's already played with. Lebron kicked out within the half of a season so that obviously didn't work. Jr did throw Soup Damon Jones. He did and he also did not call timeout when he was supposed to did call right. Yeah when he called time out like a like a silly guy that he is but I mean he can still shoot. Three's neither guy has really played much in the last couple years. So you're not really they're both GONNA take some time to get ready. I I just. I HAVE NO INTEREST. In Dion waiters in the nutcase that he's been so far this year. Yeah if I had to pick one. I'm going with Jr. even though look I. I will warn you that even with Jr. I don't look everybody's different everybody's body's different I've seen Andrea Dolla. Have a lot of rest and he only. How long has it been? Since he's played he played in June right and we're in February. It's not that long. Jr Hasim essence played in almost two seasons right. But I mean either. How much is dion? Waiters really played. He played three games this year. No he also has not played very much right. I mean I don't know what he looked like. Last year he was on the team was practicing. And you know what I mean like. Listen Lady you would know. Was He really practicing with the heat? No no he had to practice like when the team practices of their practices. He was suspended times. Sure so you don't break practice. They were sending but he he got into why he got into some games at the end he he had to have been practice. Your yeah no no thank you. I have no interest in dion waiters. No I don't either. I listen Lakers twitter for whatever. Reason is into this dion waiters thing and I just think it's a horrific mistake. I don't even know what the minutes and I know it. Well they're not. That's the whole thing. I understand this all break glass in case of emergency. But I just think you don't need a knucklehead in this locker room you don't you've got a good thing you know and look if you bring him in. Rondo can help him right like look clearly. They've they've changed the dynamics with Dwight that a lot of people were fearful of including myself right. Because I was I was never worried about Dwight and his performance. I was worried about the six inches in between years. And that generally has not been the case. I mean I told you start to show I was. I could not be more pleasantly surprised that the way this has turned out for this season. But right I just don't know how many guys like that. You WanNa take on you know. No I'd I'd not no more. I think I think one is enough. And he worked out really well. You don't you know. Don't don't push it but I mean who has a better ball handler is. I don't really know the different Dion waiters or JR Smith our. Who's going to handle the ball better between the two of them? That's what you need. Now Mark Morris theon is better at that I mean my put it a little bit. But still he's a nutcase I have no interest. Yeah he's better at that. He is better at that and he might be a better defender still at this stage. He might he might be a better defender. I don't know what jared has got left on that side I don't know it. Just it's he's playing so damn long coming up next. The dodgers may have found themselves leader. Already we'll get into that in just a second stick around. Find out who sit down here on seven ten. Espn if you missed any part of the show you could subscribe to the podcast. We had Bob Nightingale on talks dodgers. Which will talk here in a second as well but we also WANNA get us Greg's. Ucla minute his Ucla propaganda he's already talking about. Hey should we put jewelry on the show? Dog about the brackets. Ucla baby we should actually. I mean they're on the bubble will there in as of right now. They're in now. Yeah we're look. I waited till march to push it on you now. We're in March because pushing an UCLA's good so yeah they are. They're surprisingly good. You and Mick Cronin hand in hand I go just before we do the dodger thing. Just give us the UCLA. Do we have like a clock clock that we can use? I want a minute all right. Go ahead Laura give him a minute go ahead I so. Ucla won their seventh straight GAME OVER ARIZONA ON SATURDAY. And now they're in first place alone and just only team. That could possibly tie them if they beat the UCLA. Beats USC on this weekend as far as Oregon if they win both their games but that means that they're going to be almost guaranteed a tie for for the to win the PAC twelve championship and this accuser. Ucla minute is off to. It's a pretty bad stuff you should last time. It was much better last time but still the UCLA should be there in the right as of right now. They're in the tournament automatic qualifier. Because of who they are because they are in first place right now but they could be if they win out and they win the entire PAC twelve tournament they could be like a five seed and have one of the biggest turn. Yes a five six seed because yes it's one of the biggest turnarounds in basketball not history but you know in a very long time and this is a team that went from losing games to Northridge Losing Games to Hofstra. They did lose to northridge. Reggie theus coach Northridge. I mean at one point in time. I'm pretty sure you show called. Hang Time Reggie theus. I know I watched it. I was a kid when it was done. Yeah Oh you watched it. Most people don't have any probably. I've seen it a couple times when I was young for sure. Oh so good. I remember watching. That had Anthony Anderson in it. Yeah it's good. Yeah Yeah so anyway. So you think they're going to be a five seat if they win out if they completely went out and win the PAC twelve tournament and are alone in first place. Yes I think it'd be a five six seed because of what they did because Q. One wins because after beat Arizona. Probably third time. They'll have to beat Oregon. Probably which is one of those top you know. The top team left a beat Arizona state possibly again a lot of teams that are really good Colorado. They swept Arizona. They swept the they could absolutely get into a five succeed with way. Whistle an eight nine. It looks like right. Yeah no that's probably about right for them. Yeah I'm trying to see where Andy Katz has ucla. I don't see them in here yet. Maybe he doesn't hand them in Well I mean it's tough to do that. Because of what they have done but Joe Nardi has them technically at twelve right now because it's the automatic qualifier. But it's the second. How the hell do you have them as a five seat if they're the twelve see because if if they win if they beat this weekend and in loses and they win the PAC twelve outright and then they just end? They sweep through the PAC twelve tournament next week. Yes Oh yes. There'd be the hottest team in basketball. They've won seven in a row. We've gone way over a minute. Ten eleven games in a row. I know they're playing better. They deserve a little love. I'm not saying otherwise but it just it just seems like this is Absurd might be a five seat. Come on sixty. Let's go a six CD better very good. Lord so a really cool story about bets kind of being a leader already in the locker room like walking in there from day. One and just kind of proclaiming. Hey Man we're here to win a championship. Let's do this. You told me. Cool Story to Greg. Write about him. In just Justin Turner kind of creating a quote unquote. This is their term. A KANGAROO COURT RIGHT YEAH. They're going to create a kangaroo court for any defensive lapses. So you'RE GONNA have to pay if you do if you have any defensive issues like a fine system yes Have you ever heard of a kangaroo court? Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah So. Everyone knows what that is said. It's a fine system. Yes it's fine system you go and you sit in front of a judge which is probably going to be mookie. Betts Justin Turner and they're going to assign you a amount of money you're GONNA have to pay depending on. How bad the defensive lapses that's good. I like it. Hold them accountable. Come in there. Look if you're going to be the best player on the team. I am a firm believer that you need to be the leader of the team at least in some way shape or form now. Everybody leads differently. Some guys lead by example. Some guys leave more vocally and but I do think that you need to be an example in in in some fashion and clearly he's already come in stepped in very quickly to be one of those guys. I like that. If you're a dodger fan you gotta be super excited. That that's the case. Yeah everything that I've seen and heard from him. So far has just been great from coming in after being a guy that you know. You don't really know too much about because of you. Just beat them in the world series in two thousand eighteen and just coming in saying I'm coming into work. I'm coming in to win a championship here. I'm not even talking about what's happening in the off season. I JUST WANNA win another world series with you guys right here on this field. I think that's great right and then you're GonNa pay him everything he wants. Yes if that is you open up the checkbook and it doesn't matter I mean even if you just get there you still pay him whatever he wants. I don't even care. I WanNa just pay them right now. I wish you would allow them to give him an offer right now because no no. I get why he wouldn't do that so do I. But I don't want him to go. Yeah speed of getting paid. I just redid my deal. A few months ago continuing. Can I open that back up after what I saw Tony? Romo got not that. I'm saying I'm Tony. Romo but good Lord said I mean it's just insane these working twenty weeks out of the year. Like here's the thing about that. Okay and look God bless him all right because I am a firm believer that you are worth whatever. Somebody is willing to pay you. There's no doubt about that okay. I am blessed. I love my job. I love doing this radio show. I love doing the Games. I love doing the jump around the hall. I love my job. I have said for twenty years stealing money. I am doing something that I have always wanted to do that. I've always dreamed of doing and I enjoy every second of it and I'm sure Tony. Romo is doing that to an extent right because his first dream was playing football and he did that at a very high level but and his second dream was probably like. Hey I can have a career after this but I don't think it was like his first thing because Clinton that was football. I actually feel like the guy wants to play golf more. But he's so naturally talented that they're going to pay them this outrageous salary. And here's the thing good for him. But here's what's going to happen like if you're Chris Collins worth or Troy Aikman. What are you doing today? Oh I'm picking up the phone calling my agent. It'd be like oh the hell I got seventeen where you get me. What are you doing for me? I am curious to see guys like that if they end up getting more and more money. I mean there's the networks have money like if you're Fox and CBS and NBC. Like you're not just a sports channel like you've got a news department that makes money you've got though actually the news departments. Don't make a lot of money but you've got prime time. Tv shows that make a lot of money right like you have these properties that make a lot of money so I I'm okay. It's no one should be crying for Fox and CBS and NBC or whoever Because they have even more of an opportunity to make money then than ESPN does because they've got a broader base of programming within the construct of that particular network. It's not just a sports channel. It's a Network channels so it has like I said a bunch of different styles of programming on it. So they've got a ton of money but I'm absolutely looking at this if I'm Chris Collins worth and Troy Aikman in those dudes. Hey Sue how much you pay me next time. I'm up because especially if you're troy aikman right think about it. You've got more cachet than Tony. Romo and they gotta be saying to themselves because he's calling out place like we could have done that now we can't do it right because that's Romo shtick. Right Bergman like you can't now if you're Collingsworth who does I think is fantastic and I think aikman is very good too. I like Collins worth the most because he actually embraces analytics. Aikman did to Aikman did a lot of that. This year too But Collins Worth was kind of the original pioneer on the NFL side to do that from an analyst standpoint but they must be thinking like we could see those same things. That Tony's calling out. We just didn't do it but that's life but don't like if you're those guys you gotta absolutely call your age it'd be like Oh like we're making like maybe a third of that or not even like a fifth of that sixth of that I we gotta get more money so yeah. I don't know if you can hear me for whatever reason but it's time to break. I did not hear you so time. Go Oh we gotta go okay. I see you guys tomorrow back.

Can you kind of give us a quick little backstory on hind kinda got to the game. When i was a young kid growing up in key new jersey i played you know to keep For team called the hawks my coach was willie mccoy and Grown up this small town. You know i played baseball basketball and football and Basketball is my least favorite sport. I was a huge baseball fan and player willie. Mays is my favorite athlete of all time. And i really you know just played. It was when it was in season. And then when i moved to high school ninth grade i tend to junior high actually or You went to high school in baltimore. Yong three years and i joined the ymca and being a new kitten down. It's when i really a fill in love with the game was said to wile time. It was something i could do on. My own is a lot tougher to try to get better at baseball or football on your own basketball. There's so many things you can do. Of course so i mean you kind of always a good shooter with something that you really on was. I wasn't a good shooter. All i learned. Shoot the basketball I went to basketball camp up at pocono mountains and learn from three to all time greats. Herb magee hang slider and george leeman. And i watched them shoot. And i said i can do that. And i went home and tried to emulate them and replicate them. We must have been responsible mentors or did you have a couple more. As time went on i had wanted biggest mentors had was a guy by the name of dana cunningham who went to frostburg state which is division three school in maryland and He happened to be in the baltimore area during the summertime. you know work general motors. I believe it was. You know we found his way up to the basketball courts. Where we played in the actually took me saying innocent my own. He actually gave me a pistol. Pete marriages basketball homework on a nubia grit and i went home and i started doing drills down in my basement and all that stuff you know. We just reconnected. A few years ago you know via the internet stuff. He's surprised remembered me. I always tell people you know you. You know what people never forget. The kind acts it you do for that. Of course it's super important to always try to help other people. Then i mean entirely it. Oh it always comes full circle which is great. We're kind of like you're playing whether it was in college and then when did you start thinking of making that transition into coaching. I'll tell you what i was. I felt people wasn't very good as on. Jv's junior high school in. I say that's against the law thirty two states and you know when you're on. Jv junior not very good In my senior year. I made you know all i made will. Was it a all county in baltimore and honorable mention all state. Third team all metro. So i went to junior college in baltimore. Broke my ankle. My first year and played twelve games The term existed back in the medical red shirts. So i lost the year eligibility in my second year up at junior college middle region. Twenty and honorable mention all american. I still don't know what that means. I mean neither an all american. You're not i mean. Every once in a honorable mention all american and from there. I went to school. I went to school out in nebraska. I go to school in a foreign country in nebraska. And i went to an na a school know most people any is stance courts. No epidemic information available. But so i was out there and then Overseas and played for a number of years. And then i came back and i was like thirty two at the time and the baltimore. Lighten were formed team in the The cba before it was the d. league in a g. league and all that stuff in henry bibby was the head coach. It up one of my rivals. Play against rod. Nour's who's actually gene shoes nephew was the assistant and they said you know. Why don't you work out for to light gig overseas and your local favourite. You can put a few people in the crowd is. What am i get. Twenty people crabby. That's great for cba game. You know so. I went out evening. Said forget it was. When laurence taylor broke joe thighs. leg were monday night football and it's one of those injuries that you see you get sick to your stomach and i get a phone call from henry bibby right after that and he goes. I got some good news and bad news for you. I said give me some good news. That said i just saw joe is mislaid get broken. He goes. You're still with the team. I said what's the bad news. He does removing at rockford illinois and You know i said i can't. I can't do that so now without thirty two years. Old the teams got out the roster checks bounce more into basketball. I'm like what am i gonna do. S- little too late overseas in my friend called me up and said hey. Why don't you coach. And i'm like i'm not a coach player. You know. I didn't want to coach and he kept bothering me and i said. Look this name joe. Bucci coach done dot community so he kept calling me. And i said look joe come in. I don't want any money. I said not gonna committed this comment. Whenever i can help you out and i've been coaching ever since you know went in there and just story coach in and let's have been coaching You know ever since older levels and then finally got my break in the nba. When i was forty six years old toronto raptors then narrow went from toronto to washington incident. Nixon end to the detroit pistons. So who knows what the future holds now. Always new coach changes that stories super interesting and might muted so that there's no feedback but you really made me laugh with the checks bouncing one. The basketball is about now. Yeah now that's the truth that was Overseas it was pretty similar. Sometimes but you know you love the game. I at one point Might teammate overseas was boo williams and boo big. Aau program down in virginia and we had been played in a while. And you know our coats said you know you guys don't wanna play. You know. I understand it. We're like what else do that. Swearword air outlaid basketball so with these. Nba jobs. You had a couple of really cool stylish whether it's the raptors during a time. When they had chris bosh is really interesting. Like what were some of the really cool. What kind of moment. You could like pull from that. It was a great experience being renowned his team euro. We had a lot of european players. You know we had jose calderon. We were a core of a wholesome. Now like the commissioner of the spanish league and everything. We had anti poor who had played overseas for a number of years. You know well before getting sprayed in the nba and We had rossio minister of its euro. Slow car hops sow off the bench. I mean it was It was a great group of guys. there was no clicks on it team. We had the dinner is coaching staff. And you know. You've you're tj ford and chris bosh. Both african americans both from texas or store players. You'd think like you know kate you're going to be hanging out all the time we'd be a dinner and he would walk. Tj word with jose. It was his backup time and everything or the next stop. It'd be tj with russia. Going out you know what it was. Just close knit snow clicks on a team in it really Shown on court and we really moved the basketball enough being my first my first team was a great experience. We ended up winning the atlantic division. Somebody had win it. That year was really bad. We were like five hundred like fool will be to and forty. I think just above five hundred we wanted and we lost nets a first round of the playoffs so it was just a great Great run Great experience Coach mitchell was coach of the year and It was andrea andrea born yanni's rookie year. That forgot we had as well. You know what the number one pick that year and that's great. Essentially anthony parker it when he was on zoom call yesterday. James actually starts with actually in. That call was with one of our really good friends. That's coach at superleague. He organized an anti great guy. He was so nice. I mean he's a wonderful wonderful human being great. Great person You you know really one of my favorites really is then. Also new. Bob jose calderon. I mean it's interesting. Especially because he was one of the prob- probably the best. We have a history. Had the best season ever be ninety opponent percent was like for you kind of like happy being with him almost every single day like sharing secrets on shooting like. Did you want some stuff from him. He wants himself from you Jose actually you know what he was. One of my You guys that work with and everything and you know he was I was struggling a little bit with the change from the international to the nba. Three and he became very proficient at the at the three point. Line as well and You know he continued to improve throughout his career. I mean just retired a couple years ago now and you know he was always a good bet. And i'll never forget when T tj ford hurt tj. Hurt his ankle and you know jose was planted. A high level and tj was like thing concern. I think Yeah i might use my storing job or something and he's trying to come back a little too soon and jose's lake oswego go he goes you come back when you're ready to go back to the bench win man just the whole difference in in Thought ross to with the european players knowing that it's more of a team game and that's what we Exemplify up there until onta toronto international team in nba mentality over there. 'cause i mean we've obviously with james degrees many times. I mean i remember. I was sixteen the first time we went and played against those teams there. The way they approach is so different that gets teams in the way. Talk to us in the huddle is just the word is in almost. It's almost not even another cabinet. Which is crazy to see right now. And it's It's the way the game should leaders nothing nicer to watch the game of basketball when he touches at all defense is trying to scramble gathered a rotations to catch up through the ball. I mean it's a beautiful thing when it boils being fast like the old. Mix walt frazier in them. You know they were. They were outweigh. Now it's You know everyone wants to do everything. All the balance and everything and You know only like one percent of the players that actually do that. I consisted basis. You know of course. I remember. 'cause james made a big point of like the reason that this happened is because when they go home their parents ask them. Did your team win. Not how points which might be kind of the moment. -ality back here in the states thoughts on in terms of whether it's a new culture just that that whole mentality of oh did you score thirty. Okay good win or lose your job which is kind of how we look at it here but over there. It's like if you score eight and your friends scores ten and you guys ended up winning that it's a great game all around right. I think too much. It's changed from back. I mean it used to be like you know you look at the old going back in the seventies and everything you know. It was the lakers versus the knicks. It became like kobe. Bryant the lakers star players put before the team and You know i like. Would you went bobby. Knight coached in indiana. Never had a player's name on jersey. You've played for indiana. You didn't play for yourself and you know we're we're a very You know selfish You know Country here in the united states. It's all i. May you know before you know the way and You know. I think that carries over you know everywhere. Not just on a basketball. Were all the court everything and You know kids. You're all worried about you. Know how many points they were. How many touches you see that in the nba guys like winning. It's like you know finally late a career life. You know what. I have won anything. I mean you go back. I just finished reading three ring. Circus in coral malone and gary payton tried to get that ring going to the lakers. They thought you know the do have chance to to win there. That was missing in her career. Would you know you get all the personal accolades. It's like you know there. It's really hollow. And you know. I think a you basketball. The kids play too many games. Like say we're going to speak as this weekend. All right wayne at nine o'clock saturday. Now we lost by thirty to where the elite team know. Everyone's you leak leads by thirty al with that other team must be so we play at one o'clock up. We lost like twenty or playing again at eight tonight all right now. We're in losers brackets. We play at eight o'clock sunday and then we lose again. We play at noontime. So you know. You're playing six games whether you win or lose so kids become like numb to lose it. I know when i was growing up. We didn't have the you went to court but if you lost you sat and you play would older guys. You always play. You can play with now. Kids lie they wanna play down because they want to be the big store and everything and it was an honor. If the older guys you were in high school and you've got the play and you had to play the right way if you wanted to. You wanna stay on at court. You had a fan. You had to pass the ball and the only time you shot is if it was a last resort and were wide open. You better have made. And i know when i was at the. Ymca wants times in the summertime. You know of the college kids would come up with the play in the older guys. That would plant her lunch down. You screw up. They only got to play one game at lunchtime and you might not play arrested summer. Nobody would pick you and the other thing is like you have your next five ready to go. Wasn't like you pick the best guys off the losing team and at the end like maybe three guys at the last game and you had to make your free throws in order to play. You didn't just pick the guys at best you had yet to make free throw sewage. Fresh around naked free drop. You wanted to play. And that's so true. Especially when you consider i don't you You feel really strongly about some of the trainers that we see on social media putting kids through ridiculous training gadgets to show like they're trying to be creative but it's sometimes it's a little bit fluff could speak on that you actually i just Was watching a actually just posted to last night. It was episode ten from my buddy. Mike will he does Who consult salmon. Dade suburbs and a age been coaching for a number of years. Now we scout used to be player development with the dallas mavericks. I've done in since he's ten and he said you know he. He used the reference. It's like the wizard of oz. The seat of wizard n- everyone's see with the wizard was in the end when he pulled the curtain down. What was there you know. Little guy with all their expected like some you know the nba and workouts all nba. Like we have something like its its simplicity notes. It's repetition doing what you're gonna do an nba game like these guys. And i understand you have to be able to dribble a basketball with ninety nine percent of your all. Take one or two dribbles in a game. You're not going through your legs. Seventy two times washing over behind it back in with step back jump shot. There's less like less than one percentage players that do that but all these kids want to do that in an half of them if you did that step back. James harden doesn't squats at travel. I don't care it's a travel. So why would you even be practicing it. You know so. In any can't make they can't try to teach kids eurosteps that came to make a left hand layup. You're trying to give them a eurostep. You have to master the basics before you can go a step bait. There's no you can't skip steps if you wanna be a great player. That's so important. Can you kind of touch on some stories of kind of great players. You with a. You've a lot of people talking about kobe on. He would watch him play and he'd do basic jab. Step debase footwork drills. I expect something crazy. Can you kind of any experiences that i work koby out like this first. Four years You know was working for orange element everything and it was. It was simple stuff and i notice. Three pump at allenstein was talking about Wanted to go watch kobe workout. He said four clocking allen's will these games for clocking kobe. Notice four o'clock in the morning and allen went to go watch and work gatti's says he's excited kobe's the greatest player in the world right now. He's you know The mvp always in the city sector. What is no balkan. Didn't write down one thing. So all she did was jab jump shot one dribble olaf and so forth and asked what it is. I mean it's like i. I'm aware kobe at seventeen years old. We go to gym. Looks be right. E- i insist. Teach me coach me. Tell what i want to be. The greatest player to ever played a game and kobe did something wrong or he wanted to be corrected. And when you talk to me look you said down. Yeah you right. Cokie right coach. I mean he wanted to get the down pat and a lot of times like we would work on drill a certain drill. And i'd say you gotta make a certain amount and in sale does not wanna keep doing. It doesn't feel right yet. You'll even know he made like say whether it's made you know you gotta make ten twenty five from this spot doing this. I gotta stay. Doesn't feel right right now. Most people can't wait to finishing go onto the next thing. But the difference with kobe was he wanted a master things. And that's what i tell people just because you did something right. One time does not mean you've mastered it and some of my favorite quotes like that. I have like ruthlessly noted kong flu master and everything he says. I do not fear the man. Those ten thousand kicks i fear the man was perfected. One kick ten thousand times. And i feel too many players. They want to try to be great at everything this like one percent once again. Let's go back to the one percent that would be great at everything you know. Kobe was offensive defense by michael. Jordan was an offensive defensive player. Just you know there's not. Everyone is a two way in great on everything it's like you know you gotta find your niche mash to your role dominate your role and beat the best. That you can debt roll. Unfortunately every kid thinks that. They're michael. Jordan lebron james and james fort you know. Of course it's important to me whether it's a roll or it's on trying to think there's a really good word for this. I've said this before. Okay i lost it. There's a say instead of a role. I i this once in the locker room and coach's really liked it about how it's not about your role to edit this out and put it in you'll think of atlantic call ins. Probably i tell you a message to say that. I lost that because i hadn't while you were talking. I just lost it but now i mean david because it's something that is is really important so then going back to your your your your coaching. You end up going to the knicks. They have a record setting season in two thousand thirteen. I mean that's something i mean. Obviously being a new yorker most of to this show knicks fans. What can you tell about about that experience in any kind of being in the building hardly organization the last time they were both relevant and or fun until all that. Good stuff it was. It was an exciting time for me. I mean i grew up in new jersey and When as a young kid. I loved the knicks. Back with wool frazier in the end. They got earl the pearl knick fan living in baltimore and stuff. The now used to have some epic battles just match up so well so for me going into madison square garden. I was excited every time. I in there and i you know i would get an early to get my workouts in madison or moment personal playground so i was excited. And then you know the knicks organization. All the experts didn't pick us to make the playoffs that year. I mean we were an older team and they didn't think we were like an afterthought then we went fifty four games So it's the ran. And we lose the indiana and second offset all. He should have beaten indiana. Maybe we should've but nobody said beginning with fifty four games have not yet been like. There's no way possible but when we did it was but it was just a great season. All the way round with a great bunch of veterans and Even our rookie set year. All we had chris cope when twenty eight. Bob will preview only thirty two. So our are rookies. Were veterans mean. They had been playing overseas for a number of years and it was just a great group of guys and the dated things we used to joke about. En- shoot around and walk through. What are we gonna show these guys if they haven't already seen we had jason kidd whose forty we had kurt thomas. Marcus camby kenyan more. I mean we had all the old heads in You know it was just a great group of mellow led the league in scoring. Jr was sixth man of a year. And just the electricity going into garden was It was it was just a a season on. Never forget and even his second year. I mean we were. We were depleted with injuries early. We finished up like sixteen five at the end of the year. We're playing really well. And i thought you know i thought that You know we make the playoffs. Who was sort of like. But we didn't think atlanta got an air force but we were playing at a high level and i thought if we did get to the playoffs. We did some dan. Rea point such a high level last twenty some games a year with you know that wasn't to be phil came in and you know he cleaned house with us and stuff so that was the end of that. Now what you notes. Great to see Coats woodson coach stat. Be back there at shit at a lot of people saying. Why don't the knicks. Bring you back you know. Especially the way is poorly. Shoot the ball right now. You know you got or jake. I mean they could make a free throw. last year. they couldn't make a shot point orbs struggle. So who knows what'll happen area of course was so just so you can make at the. I can change. Say it's we don't have rosenstein. We each had a purpose. That was one of the things that i had to go through my google drive just now typing fears. They try to find. Wanna make sure. I told him before. Smoggy nets unlike that. It's it's like other like your role. Is it to get this into rebound. It's your purpose rebound sure. That's not rate rate thing especially firm analogy away. You say things meet a lot really. It's now it's when you say rolling. Sounds like a drag her basis like purpose. Like oh my god do what. you're also. No so i mean burnett for the next season. I mean that was a record setting season. I'm energy in the electric of them winning. But how they one was in large part due to the success. Shooting and the chan- the change in mentality. That i mean credit to the warriors with steph and clay but then next thing was one of the first ones to really embrace the three ball can kinda talk touch on that and what that With that decision kind came down to write coach woodson. You know he. He was a shooter himself back when he played and actually that year we set a record for the most Freeze made in nba history. That's been shattered. I don't think it's in the top fifty naps. Everyone's three ball crazy. But you know we we You know we emphasized threes every day and our guys afforded to it and we actually have thing that actually leave the gym. We had a certain drill that they had Get it was actually Was three out of five five from seven spots. And if you didn't get together short the whole thing over again and oliver shooters had to do that. We challenge one against another. We'd one guy against another and we made it competitive but also fun and then The own if you did three out five yet at four out of five and then a lot of guys want say five five. You didn't have to go back where you just stay. But you guys got into the thing that i think really a lot to do with. I've been speaking of camps for so many years. Most of the guys that senior caps like jr saw me when he was real little guy. Carmelo saw mid eastern invitational was a mauriot sunshine. Invitational so You know going in there. And actually steve novak saw me when i spoke network once he was playing at marquette. So going in i think you know i had like a Respect factor not only. Could i do it. But i could teach so forth so the guys were sort of excited. You know to become an spend extra time with me. That's great. I mean especially considering if anyone ever been to your clinics watching you miss either one or zero shots obviously. I think we'll have a lot of respect for you when it comes to everything shooting. I question the ad. it's appreciate that would You know something like it's something anybody can do. They put the time into a scene. Owes two things you have to do. One of the great shooting. Well not ten million things just to number one. You shoot the ball correctly with correct form and technique. I said that's the easy part. The second part is when nobody wants to be great in world. You have to shooting correctly more times than anybody else in the world. And that's what we make excuses instead of making shots. I gotta do this. I gotta do that so forth to too much too. Many too many excuses being made on shows game. That's it so then. Now i mean obviously like you've been doing a lot of you've been doing. They've hopless shooting clinics for almost five years. How do you kind of avoid burn out with that You know what i i. Don't get something i love to do. I mean every day going to the gym. I'm excited because i challenged myself. Because i've been shorting my shot since i was sixteen years old so this be today. I set a new record that this drill or that's real and so forth so i never get excited. Every time i go into the gym. I mean even in the nba. Like you know. It's such a long season. they it a grind. That i see Something you don't like like he grind your teeth to grind your ears. It's not smooth grinded man. I'll give up that. I love to do and it's like i'd say guys like you know i haven't been flying. Why did you start playing basketball. Why did you start playing well as fun. And i loved it exactly now. It's no longer fun. You don't love it you're making more money than you ever thought was was imaginable. And now you're miserable. Go figure it out. And i got your time is gonna come during the nba season. And that's why you gotta keep he put it in that time. Doing you're doing your Practice putting in extra time and it. Perfect example of that one with the knicks with chris copeland that kid didn't know when he's gonna play or anything but he was always ready and he always produced because he always put that time. And i remember. I chris. Chris copeland Really came to know that was great that year. So i mean especially when you say there's always being read i mean. I say that with the freshman team especially zebra at that age guys better in terms like in a week someone. They can complete change their games. 'cause they grow or they they learn something or they are. They have confidence confidence in houston into and not. It's a huge thing. If it's at the wake it takes them from one level to the next just either overnight or the way can take them from one level and skip like ten levels just because they finally confident after some time as a fantastic now. That's the truth. That confidence is so especially the young age. How do you develop confidence through repetition doing drills and like i said by charting your shots i mean once you see yourself getting better and you know you're getting better. Your confidence confidence lease success success. Lisa confidence ongoing cycle of course so with the with the whole cronkite pandemic You're shooting kind of adopted Fit that an awful clinics have been non nonexistent. I mean i had. I was supposed to go to china's good canada Amsterdam australia all over england ireland through great britain and everything. That's shutdown with that. My cancer supposed to have All shutdown for summer on Unfortunately i didn't get to do them. But luckily reasons resigned moved florida's i have my buddies jim three hundred sixty five days a year. Twenty four seven. So i still could do my workouts and i was doing some of workouts with local kids here in florida so i continued doing that and now things are starting well. I mean the numbers are spiking without at the season's over agents our contact in me you know because i have i have yes. Oh court There's nobody no onlookers. No outsiders air. It's being wherever i'm work with. I even had anyone else in the gym. But being a person i workout whereas i usually have my daughter comes into the videotape and hatha yoga Interns cedeno no rebound in short shots. I haven't even done. That's just me and the person i'm working out you know some people. Are you know still leery about this whole thing in looks at the season's over at agents contacted me and everything matter of fact them get ready to send a letter out to you. Know john as-as Agent you know with his. His lack is shooting which You know hurts him in the playoffs to princeton with him. I mean i. I wasn't bring up. But that's that's a great point. Because i don't know if you've seen the video recently of his rookie year and how smooth historical background. An as he put on weight. Or maybe i think a lot of people put it on the coaching staff there to kind of just changing his shot a little bit but he. It's obviously it went from a mid thirty percent. Shoot his rookie year and she's gone down while everything everything's about. His game has gone up His points per game everything has gone up. What we i had by that. I said you know it's You know put some weight on stuff in You know now like you gotta realize his rookie year. He wasn't the two time. Mvp either dow. Everyone's you know gauge up on him. He's not getting a book she had with the free throw shooting. There's no excuse for be going down with. I've got pictures of him and his balanced hand. I call the battles. It's opened up. You see it like this. Sasha it's actually hired any shooting hand. It's here shooting hands light here and i. You know there's problems that i see with the stroke and everything but i mean he's a hard worker. There's no reason why he should continue to improve. Do everything else but as you see going to play offs at team you're just get ready. Played at team they. They set up their defense. Every you know build that wall so he has nowhere to go and go into regular season scrapers you. You played at four times a year. And you know you're not you're enough for them day after day after day. So of course plant basketball is a completely different different silence. Something people don't really understand they. Just think okay. A lot of this stuff carries over most of it. It's so different in terms of how teams can prepare for you and that's why some teams can degreasing than bad in the playoffs and others can really wrap it up in the simple play with players to have some able to complete change because it's just how styles make fights which is just to get well when we made the playoffs up in toronto and they after i play game we played the nets you know. They were a veteran team. After two game you know crisps. Cheese would a different game you know. Just the intensity. Every possession is so valuable on everything and you know it's a lot more physical and everything will back then it was not not nowadays You can't even like you know the cutter anymore. So one last question to wrap up. What's some advice you'd give yourself when you were younger over whether it's when you when you were when you were a kid when you're in your twenties out of college. What what kind of advice would you give yourself. Ben that you didn't really think of a time I would listen to my elvis. You know people that have been there and done that as i get older like look back and then i'm like yeah now i. I know my mother was talking about like when you're young. You know you think you know everything and and to be coach. A-all i mean Wanted big things i think. Nowadays when kids are being corrected or coach they take it as a personal attack like under life on. Who they are in coaches are trying to make you a better player a better person so the team is better in so many kids take it as like disrespecting to gain or disrespecting them and i remember listening mrs several years ago Listening to john thompson on a radio station lies down in sierra. He thought about you know you know head coaching. And he saw even back when he was coach. He says you know the promise. Should you know. Allow the african american kids. They've been raised by their grandmothers. You know two dads of today haven't had any real male influence in your life. So they're rashly. Reluctant to like trust the male figure. Because you know data's left at that's not their you know. He said he thought they were a little leery of the at like well you you'd like leaving me too and so forth so i thought that was an interesting perspective on his ports It's like to accept coaching embrace. It you know. I mean like steph curry said if if if you're not corrected you're not coaching me and i'm not getting better and a great rate wants wannabe coast. They wanna be taught lace kobe's looked at me and the i want to be great. Teach sean we tell me what i gotta do and i'll do what like i say. People are like what was it like. I said it was a double edged sword. It was great that i work with koby. You know and you know a great player. He wasn't ready for the nba at first year. But he bounced back on four airballs and everything. I said. i've been disappointed. Because i've never had anybody work as hard as kobe. Since that time outs like guys come in stretch. They gotta do this. They walk through to drill. He was just up an incredible guy vegetables for it fan. I mean especially considering the s at the end about how. It's disappointing. Because you always have you hold onto to that standard. Some of the best events have out of the show is brennan stein on one of the first episode. Saying i was asking how to get more out of my players because i'm always trying to push them always trying to make his heart as as hard as i did a few years ago. I always bring up up his gamble. He's like john. You have to realize not. Everyone's kobe those. Those are exactly what it is not not. Everyone's if if you're a hard worker not everyone's you yeah so you have to understand that. Sometimes you have to kinda instead of a match the player with match yourself the plans to the match player to you to make sure that that you accommodate them and their needs and they're who they are as a player as opposed to having them fit you as a coach. So that that. I do that you just said was was was fantastic explaining so it's funny. I was listening to the nba radio today. Like you know sam mitchell was on sam. Was you know coaching here. What is in toronto heating saying you know. You have to be fair with every player which you can't treat every player the same way. There's certain guys you can get off you. Don't use kris humphries. As an example he goes. I could get on shoppers blah blah blah coach at minnesota. He could get. Karl anthony towns but like andrew wiggins yet like talk to them like certain people. Don't respond to you. Know screaming and hollering some go and you know would be fair with every player and although you're not treat each one that same this You know reggie theus was on there as well and reggie theus you know. He said he coaches his team like the with his family. You know i got. I'm not here to be your friend. I'm here to teach you right from wrong and make you better of course in what. You're saying that that line is so difficult to go because it's not. It's a fine line. But that's separate the good coaches from the great coaches. So i what it all comes down to dave. Thank you so much for coming out. And i really appreciate it. I mean i had a great time talking to. I know my listeners. Really gonna learn a lot from this episode and take off. Mitchell thank you. Thank you very much appreciate you having me on and tell everyone eric should low invoked the be back to do a clinic in the near future counterweight. That'd be fantastic. I date by by now by.

We had the summer off for part of the summer off and we are back at it and Wean missed it. We're in such better shape now to just once you guys know that we are now on video, you can get us on the Youtube. It's pretty exciting. We're adding more steph every week it seems like which is a lot of fun so. Not only can you listen to our voices through the podcast platform? You'd also watch us through our youtube which is. This battery special podcasting in Youtube and watch the show as well. Spooky. So we also during the time off, decided to Redo a couple of our segments. So food court files will be. Like an actual judge type thing which is kind of what the name was. Originally, we never went with it. We'll break it down later in the episode would actually it's going to be but. The spark notes of it are basically just getting outrageous appease of facebook in different things and we're actually making them instead of just tagging our friends in. Absolutely. And Sports Jack Word is GONNA find topics that are fun for us not necessarily current events because it's. Hard to keep up with everything going on. Yeah, WE'RE GONNA try to record a few weeks in advance. So we're trying to get things that have already happened in the past so. We got just two segments now just food court files in the all sports jug you guys a little quicker episode quicker for us and quicker view as well. Make it happen Cap. Are. You really get down into it All right. We're GONNA jump into our first segment which all rise. It's time for the food. All right. This week forward food court files. We're going to try to get down to the meaning of the name of food court files and kind of change the show a little bit at least for a couple of weeks. Where to turn it into. Still Food. But more accordion file. And we're going to do it more like a like a judge show like A. Cake boss or one of them contests on the. Basically, what we're GONNA do is we're going to look it outrageous recipes online facebook anywhere. We can get them instead of just sharing them and tagging people in them. WE'RE GONNA get down to the nitty gritty and we're GONNA make them and we're GONNA eat them. We're probably going to gain weight because that's what we do. So. After we make these weird concoctions and then we eat them we're going to judge them and we'll kind of go over our scoring system for it. Later in the episode, Let's talk about what we're making this week and what kind of prompted the change. We started really simple because we do not believe in are cooking skills at all. So we picked the one that had three ingredients so we are making. Bacon wrapped grilled cheese. So what you're going to need is you're gonNA need ten strips of Bacon, which sounds outrageous for one sandwich in it was but it was delicious. You're going to need two slices of bread and you're gonNA need what it said a lot of cheese. That's basically what it says. So we got this recipe on buzzfeed dot com and doesn't really give us that great of directions but he's like a short video it was just like. The bobby sandwich eat it eat it. Okay. So we took very vague directions we did. We did our best I. think there are some things that will change which will talk about we're doing it but. Let's talk about how we put this thing together how do you make ten strips of Bacon bread and cheese turn into a gourmet perfection so before we get going, we'll we'll say what ingredients we use those are the three ingredients, but there's obviously different varieties of what you could use, and we'll talk about what we did use what we would change in the future. So we used ten strips of Bacon. There's a little bit thicker of Bacon. It was apple would bacon we use like uncured kind of like Fancy Bacon Yeah it was we when we put it down, we had to put our pinky out when we had. The bread we used was. Pieces of white bread was like, oat. Brand artisan something like that some sort of healthy bread and then further wasn't that healthy. New whenever. We had in the fridge, and then for the cheese we went with the you'll I think it was mild Cheddar you know we we took a block of cheese whole block of cheese and we cut the block of cheese small slices. And he's Used the entire blocks for a couple ones of us for a photo op. So those are ingredients we use. We'll be showing pictures during this video up on our website of what we did and how we did it of just break down the. That we use to make this sandwich. Gives you directions. So the first direction is you lay five strips of Bacon on a cutting board. So we did that they had tried to keep them overlapped a little bit because the Bacon would kinda shrink when we cooked it. So we wanted to make sure that it didn't fall apart and we didn't expose too much of bread. Yeah. So we'll talk a little bit later but five strips of Bacon on the cutting board overlapped your next. You'RE GONNA make the sandwich. So you put the cheese in between the two pieces of bread pretty simple. But as we were looking at this recipe, we got a pro tip before we started. We made sure we toasted the bread before we started this process because we were worried that the Bacon Grease was gonna make the posted bread a little bit too soggy in the middle. Right. So we figured if we toasted it would avoid. Soaking up like immediately at least hold its form a little bit longer, and still be a sandwich. Eventually, it's going to be overwhelmed with ten pieces of Bacon worth of Greece but. We figured at least hold its course and. It did a pretty good job but. Up, so we get down to it will kind of break it down for you So the third step just rap, that's all it says. So what you're GONNA do is you're GonNa put we did it a little bit differently You're supposed to put the Bacon at. Supposed to put the sandwich the end of the Bacon and kind of rolled up. We put the sandwich in the middle of the Bacon. Just folded the flaps to the top I think you can do it either way. I think the rolling would have been effective method. If we had longer bacon, it would have mattered. Yes. That's one thing. The longer bacon is GonNa work better for you to wrap the sandwich or smaller bread. Ideally Bicker Baked. All right. So then you're next thing is you're GonNa, you're GONNA lay down another five strips of Bacon and you're going to wrap it up to almost like Kinda like a cross. So the five are going to be perpendicular to the other five that you already put up there in your sandwich should be basically completely covered something that we ran into is the corners were exposed. So if we were GONNA do it again, we would do twelve to thirteen pieces of bake. And get the corners or use. More Bacon or wider begin or some sort of other methods to make sure that the corners covered up maybe not overlap as much but we were just again our first time doing it So. Yeah. You'RE GONNA have. So at this point, you have a sandwich fo, the whole block of cheese the way we did it you have anywhere from ten to thirteen bake pieces of bacon wrapped up on it right? So after we get this concoction together, we gotta get our FRY Pan. We need a pretty big one with a high lip because we have ten pieces. Bacon worth of Bacon. Grease it's GonNa Start. Filling up the right man while we're cooking it, make sure that you heated up beforehand. So that it just goes right into frying bacon and you want to make sure that it's a medium he you don't WanNa do too hot otherwise the Bacon will burn before it gets cooked all the way through. So let's keep it into medium To do here is you're gonNA put the sandwich on five to seven minutes per side. We did like six thirty when we did we probably should have done a touch longer bacon was kinda thick. It didn't all the way cook the other side it was still like it wasn't like. I'm coli Bacon, but it was it was good. especially the part that overlap that's what we noticed. That's the part that seem to not really cook as well as the other parts of the Bacon. So. We're going to do both sides like you would on a grilled cheese. But since we have bacon wrapped all the way around each side, we also had to get some like barbecue tongues and hold this thing with the Bubbly Bacon Grease flying everywhere and hold it on each side for about thirty seconds to make sure those ends Kinda got crispy as well. So, this point we got the sandwich we were done cooking. We got it out with. Make sure to when you're flipping it that you're spatulas pretty macho because. Dispatch the we use was a it's a plastic spatula almost snap because of how heavy the sandwich was. It was like. The Fry Cook Guy in Good Burger movie when he had the Mondo Burger and it Kinda just bent this match down that's basically what happened with our grilled cheese wrapped in Bacon. So we took this took the sandwich ow. We're very impressed that stayed for the most part together we did the old diagonal cut. We let it cool for about two minutes or so until the Bacon was almost cool enough that I could kinda hold it in place with my fingers that not burn my hand off. And, let me give you the diagonal cut. We cheers debt and we ate half of it and it was pretty delicious. So a few things that we would probably do if we were gonNA, do it again we kind of talked about them a little bit before but probably thinner Bacon but longer. Bacon. Yeah the thicker Bacon doesn't really lend itself to stretching as much as this the thinner bacon would. Able to stretch across the bread and be able to cover everything up in the hard part with a thicker bacon is that when you overlap it just harder for to cook underneath the other Bacon that we have we probably would have done a different bread choice Yep. The bread did okay through this process but even with the toast job got a tad bit soggy. But the Nice thing about that was that the bread I mean the Bacon on the outside gave it still a nice little crunch and made the sandwich very delectable. Everything in neither toasted a little bit more have a thick bread like Texas toast or French toast or like a waffle or something some just wild if you really wanted to get crazy and then we would probably also change up the cheese that we used in the middle maybe like a pepper Jack or something more fun. Yeah. Our expectation of cutting the sandwich open in spreading it apart is that cheese just kind of like pull apart like a pizza commercial and it was more like the movie, the Blob when it opened up a new. I mean it was amazing. It was entire block of cheese we one sandwich, but it was a lot of cheese. That was the sandwich who's very good. Now, we're going to get down to the old rating system sack. So we're going to be rating all the foods that we eat on a scale of one to five we're going to rate them A number of spivey specials and it was actually thinking this week. What if we did? The number of parts of watermelon vodka in our spivey special each of the numbers. You just doing lot. That's a lot of commitment. Yeah. Let's just stick with spivey special. We can do that. I. Know You're not good at math is tough. Too many are think going to go first so. I'm going to read this. Based on. The directions. The overall product and the ease of actually making it We're GONNA, go three and a half out of five. Now wasn't that it was pretty easy to make. It was a little dangerous with a barbecue tongs doing this I told you that thing over the Bacon Grease But it was good. When you bite into five pieces bacon in your half, of Sandwich, and half a block of cheese in it was good. Yeah. I'm going to go a little bit higher with the rating I'm GonNa give it four spivey specials. I think that again, the ease of making it. Only having three ingredients and only having to clean one pan when you're done in one cutting board. Will to I guess because we had the cheese on one anyway to boards and a pan that's pretty good cleaning up So I'M GONNA give it four. The taste was really good. The Bacon gave it a nice crunch. The Sandwich in general stayed together. So you can pick it up and eat it. It wasn't like a crazy hotdog chili dog or somewhere yet they eat it with a knife and a fork you pick it up stayed together right it also looked just like the video. When we cooked it won't cut into other than the. The stretching the cheese it was it was basically right on. Yeah. We'll put up a picture of side by side of what they said. It should look like and what ours looked like I thought ours looked better on nailed it. We we've done alright. Not. Bad. All. Right. Well, I think that's all we got. That was a fun I, a recipe if you find any weird recipes on facebook or instagram or whatever tag us in it at Spivey special, and maybe we'll make it maybe we'll review it and you'll find out if it's actually worth eating starting a podcast can be exciting challenging at first feels like you have no idea what the heck is going on, is it worth it? We make money doing this after ten shows we had. No idea the answer to this then we found podkoren dot com within a week. We had a pain add on our show. We finally felt big time with popcorn dot com advertisers are looking for shows to partner with all you need to do is write a proposal as to why you're the show for them. Once you get approved, the money gets sent right to your pay pal account. Thank you popcorn. You have made these two brothers feel big time like only a mirror has before. Sports job with the spivey brothers, cubs or good. Get the ball the big country generic soccer take. All right. That's enough. I met. All right this week for Sports Jug. WE'RE GONNA be talking kings basketball for to kind Kevin. Explain we're GONNA make a little bit of a detour on Sports SHUG WE'RE GONNA probably skip live sports for a while there's just a lot going on. The news is updating seemingly hourly in that makes it difficult for us with the weekly show to really keep up with that. So we're going to pick a couple of topics that we wanted to talk about Some Fun things from the past memories specific games. some what if we're going to kind of cover that kind of stuff for a while? Yeah, we'll just talk about things that we want to talk about. We love the Kings There's going to be some different games and memories that we kinda wanted to talk about that. A lot of people know about we'll just dive in just give the. Whole realm of what went on. So we're GONNA do tonight is we are going to be doing a. Super Redraft and it's GonNa be historical redraft. So what we decided to do? It we're going to jump in our time Shane where you're gonna be the GM from whatever year that we want We're GONNA START IN. Nineteen eighty-five up to the current. We decided we can pick one year. We can use any depicts the reveal that year no trading picks undoing trades. We can't undo a trade back and just have who have had originally. That's we decided was unfair We assume that whoever's pick that we take instead, they just take the player that the kings would have picked. Usually that's work on big boards. And we just don't want to do an entire redraft and trying to figure out who they were getting the second round that kind of stuff. And then we also decided to avoid the ones that are Kinda to related call specifically the Bagley Luca which as we sit right now looks like pretty bad one but let's let Bagley play a healthy season if he's capable of doing that before we make that judgment. Yeah I don't know if we'll get that but we we hope that its kinks fans but like you said a little too early to call so. The. Luke Bagley will not be on our list but. We're, GONNA go ahead and we're GONNA give you a top three of what we think. We're the best years the kings could have really made a change to the franchise, and then afterwards, we're going to give you some honorable mentions that didn't quite make our list and we'll kind of tell you why. All right. So we are going to start. In. Nineteen eighty-five we're going all the way back as far as we can go, we picked eighty-five because that's when the kings came to Sacramento. It just happened to be one of those ones that every kings fan brings up. So One Thousand Nine hundred five kings have the number six pick. Tried tells what we're doing with the six pick in the nineteen nine five draft the King Select Joe Klein from Arkansas. Joe Klein's a fifteen year MBA vet. Somehow he career averaged four point, eight points and four point one rebounds. How do you go four and four over and play fifteen years? because. I was the eighties and nineties. Okay Fair enough. So we're not going to pick joke line, we're going to pick the player that went thirteenth overall Louisiana Tech some known him as the mailman. He's also known as Carl Malone the NBA's all time point leader. You don't Dream Team member Karl Malone was a Nineteen Year Mba vets-go twenty five points a game. And averaged ten point one rebounds. If you do the math that is quite a lot more points on the number one pick that year was Patrick Ewing he only averaged twenty one points over his career. So thirteenth was kind of a steal their for Utah. Absolutely. So. Carl GonNa make a huge difference to the Kings It's their first year in Sacramento. And someone that's going to be playing in the NBA at a very high level until two thousand, three, I think two, thousand, four when he retired but he's making championship runs with the Lakers in two, thousand three. So if you can last that long playing in a high level, it's GonNa make a big difference for your friendship when only that is i. Mean, it's a guy that was very loyal to a small market team up there in Utah and was kind of funny as we were delving into everything kings and wasn't part of our little year range but nineteen eighty-four, we also had John Stockton. So it could have been Stockton Malone in Sacramento City Utah, but we swung and missed Joe Klein though. So that's Now we're not done with nineteen, eighty five. we also in eighty five we could have had Chris Mullin Joe dumars dental shrimp or Charles Oakley. But we got joke line. But we fixed. It got Karl Malone now, there was also a later round pick droit. Tell us what we didn't said with the fifty first pick in the nineteen thousand, hundred, five draft, the King Select Charles Bradley who played zero minutes in the NBA. Our. Full. Instead of picking a player that scored zero points. We are going to take a player who is a very exciting player. We're going to be taking spud Webb he had to get up to get down. Here's a twelve year NBA vet hours nine point, nine points a game somehow fell won't obviously because I'm thinking of his height, he was the eighty seventh pick that year. So we we had quite a pretty good chance of getting them there. Yeah. Absolutely. So now we got Karl Malone and Spud Webb along with Reggie theus. US There now we'll get a pretty exciting team for nineteen ninety-five maybe the balls bounce a little bit different but the kings basically don't make the playoffs from like eighty five when they're there till ninety eight, I think the brand grant Michael. Michael the Animal Smith and Richmond. So this should change the course of the king's fairly significantly may be changed around the. The feeling of what the Kings are. They're basically like the clippers the basically. You know they might have had a small market clippers. Yeah. Just weren't very good for very long but again, I mean News Akron. Oh. So of course, they still fill the stadiums and all that but get a guy like Karl Malone and a guy who actually did play for the Kings later in his career spud Webb would have been pretty fun there nine, hundred, ninety five to go with Reggie theus who was heck of kings coach also later in his life. All right. So we're going to move on to our next one. WE'RE GONNA move to two, thousand, thirteen or two thousand thirteen kings had this seventh pick in the draft another high pick. With a seven pick in the nineteen in the two thousand, thirteen draft, the kings draft Ben, the pizza. Guy. macklemore. Didn't turn out terrible. He never really lived up to the hype, the Pizza Guy Hype that we gave him when he came in he still around in the league and then he's on the rockets right now. But every team that gets them as just kind of waiting for to unlock potential and he never did. But there is a player that. Did breaches potential that we're going to draft. He was originally drafted fifteenth. And that is Janas Cuneo. Yeah I mean early in his career obviously right now he's a seven year vet hours, twenty points a game but he was a slow start to his career six point eight points a game in his rookie year and last year twenty, nine, point six. So he grew quite a bit. He actually did grow he grew three inches from the time he was drafted before the season started, which is insane thing to have happened to you. You kind of have to grow into your body at that point he also put on a bunch of muscle kind of gangly. when he was first drafted and he's turned into probably multiple time and MVP or assuming that he's GonNa win this next one. Maybe the defensive player of the year as well. So He's GonNa be your anchor on defense. He's GonNa Score. What would you say like twenty nine points a game. That's a pretty big pretty big jump from the pizza. Mean you gotTa look though at the time I don't think that Ben mclemore was a bad pick and I don't think. It was a great at the time was was kind of a reach a little bit with the honest. The way he played like I said, he wasn't that great, but he just developed so much that. That would have been a pretty good guy to have on the kings only play overseas to, and there's always some hesitation. Once you have Darko in the mirror out of other. Foreign born players other than like Dirk and a couple more now more recently. there's been a lot more that Lucan few dealers that came through but in two thousand thirteen, I can see the hesitation. And then he and then he gross. I mean you look at the Kings roster that point I mean you got rudy gay who at that time could fill it up. He had bogey. Off Of those two guys shoulders you know maybe even give Jimmer. Ross or you know give him a little love I mean he can knock down shots like the guy is on the bucks do now. So it could like we said, could have changed gooden guard anybody. But when you have Jaanus is the anchor on your defense maybe it helps enough that they can least find a rhythm and find a hole in the NBA so. It's a pretty good offense or it'd be a pretty it'd be weird team but I think it'd be kind of fun. I think it'd be good for Boogie to not be the best player on the team when he was healthy on that Pelicans team with Anthony Davis the he thrived they had a pretty good run before he got hurt so. I think that's best for him. I. Don't think that he is a Leader of your team. He shouldn't be forcing shots because he's the only one that can make it and I think he needs somebody like that in order to grow. As a common theme when we talk about is guy forces shots late in the game because he felt like I mean, if you look at the roster is that we had he was the best player on those teams just he shouldn't be a guy trying to create a shot being a point center. Bright. So. That's pretty good. Pretty good upgrade when you go from the pizza guy to Jaanus. It's pretty good hindsight again, twenty twenty but that's not one where you're like on draft night. How did they not take on us and they picked Ben Macklemore. So we're GONNA move onto our number one. Now, this is necessarily the one that kings fans talk about all the time but we thought it'd be a pretty significant upgrade in. If I was the time traveling GM. This would be the one that we would go in Vicks two, thousand, twelve kings of the fifth pick in the draft drawing. With the fifth pick in the two thousand twelve draft the Kings Select Thomas Robinson. WHO's a five year MBA vet who scored four point nine points a game. He played a couple seasons in the NBA. You went to Europe. He's played pretty good in the I think he's trying to make a comeback into the NBA but when you're the fifth pick overall. That's not exactly what you want your career arc to be. Now who we're GONNA pick instead we're going to pick the guy that was one pick behind. So this isn't even that far out of the realm of possibility and we're GONNA pick Damian Lillard the guy's pretty good your Mba vet average twenty, four points a game. In the is just CAN FILL IT UP I. Love Dame, he's one of my favorite players in the NBA. Really had too much help up there in Portland. But the guy can fill it up. I mean, they managed the Western Conference finals. With, non lot. Playing really good he super. Seems like he's a good teammate -an again. To his small market team, he wants to stay in Portland coach mauled power to he's a he's in the gym range Kinda Guy who pull it up from the logo and just that's what I like about him. Right now that the other reason we like the two thousand twelve draft is because what could have happened in the second round as well so try let us know what are the Kings do in the second round two, thousand twelve with the thirty sixth pick in the two thousand twelve draft. The King Select Orlando Johnson. WHO has a three year NBA vet whoever's three point two points a game. All right. Well instead of that, we are going to pick. Chris Middleton. Chris Middleton went just three picks later in the thirty ninth slot. Eight Year Mba Vet Sixteen point three points a game and right now, one of the honest right hand man over there in Milwaukee. Make an all star team. He's made some all MBA team sees. He's very good. Another good score. Now. What happened in this draft instead of getting Thomas, Robinson and Orlando? Got Two of the best three point shooters in the league. In Two thousand twelve right as the league changes so. Another huge part for that. Potential lineup. That year we could have had Damian Lillard. tyreek Evans. Khris Middleton. Bogey and end Jason Thompson, but we can't fix. I personally had middleton coming off the bench with Zia, Thomas. John, my favorite Salman started in that lineup. But anyway, you look at it. You know that's a nice little core right there as the NBA starting to change to just hoisted. If you got it I, mean having two guys that can make threes which the Kings sometimes struggled to find on their roster I. Think those would have been two huge just kind of franchise altering picks and I. think that's the reason why we went with two thousand twelve is our number one done what what what what because they those two picks were just so big wasn't just one pick that could changed. By I'd also could have changed the careers of Boogie again when he he can go inside out, he can pass that he's a pretty good passer from the post he can pass it back out to Middleton or Damian Lillard that's pretty good. Doesn't have to create his own shot a lot and also tyreek Evans I, think. When you've got some other shooters and he's not having a force down the lane may be. Maybe doesn't hurt and maybe this kings team turns into something if not tyreek and Jason Thompson and boogie leave and we still have Milton Damian Lillard and a lot of things can change for the Kings. One other thing too. That's so hard about these draft picks is who knows if they would've developed the way that they did on the teams they? Actually were drafted on who knows if they came to the kings and just didn't develop into the players they were because it seems like a lot of our picks. You know they seem like good picks and just don't develop their in Sacramento right Chris Middleton might be one of those ones that doesn't quite develop same in Sacramento but. I'd still take him over Orlando Johnson without a doubt. All right. So that's our top three. We'll talk about some of our mentions in here in a second. If you disagree with any of those picks, hit us up on social media at spy special. Let us know what you think about that. KOBELCO cover a couple of honorable mentions. Now, this first one is probably the most popular kings fan fiction draft. Redo. We didn't choose it for a couple of reasonable covering here and that is Kings picking tyreek Evans over Steph Curry. You know at the time you know there's just so much going on at the I I felt at the time in two thousand nine when we made that pick, it was actually a really good pick. You know there's a lot of questions around steph curry at that time. Yeah in. In the year that. Tight reeks rookie year he's one of five players to average twenty, five and five as a rookie five and five of. Yeah Twenty Five and five or twenty Dash Five Dash Five. On that list is Michael Jordan, a couple of pretty historic names that are on that list. And he was there. Now the NBA changes shortly after that, because of the player that we could have drafted instead which steph curry but tyreek was a really good player he's rookie of the year. Maybe. The ball bounces a little bit different. Maybe he doesn't hurt maybe doesn't play bogey maybe his crew changes a little bit and. He still on MBA rosters, he can make a difference just his his style of play just doesn't really exist. There's no room for in today's game. Again though you know we draft curry who knows what the often said he's put in the people around him. If he turns in, I mean the guy could always score Davidson. Davidson I think you could figure it out in Sacramento. Buddy may not be an all time shooter. They might not be able to get him free or take the pressure off. There's no klay there's no dream on. Boogie acts like draymond he just can't play. Yes, I mean a lot of people think that was probably the. Ankle Injuries Orlean thing the warriors run the fence to even sign him. That's how we ended up with a weird Kevin durant signing because of the cheap curry contract may be doesn't resign with the king so. Lot of question marks there we'd like the tyreek pick at the time and he was on pace to be really good player. So I like the three that we had over that one but that one was in the rotation that we saw that a few times. Yes, so the next honorable mention we had was. We could've had regime. Rondo. Over Scooby Dooby Quincy, dooby. or Cutlery Carol Kyle lowry was a little slow slow Bernie took awhile before he really got his legs in the NBA and I don't know that the Kings would have been the team for that. But Oh six is this draft. This is the end of the Baby Ron we've got run tests Kevin Martin. Bobby Jackson stone the roster. So they wouldn't. They didn't really need Rondo. But had they drafted him? I mean he's gone in like year Bobby Jackson's gone within the year even though they're still young. Maybe team keeps going and maybe we don't go full. Rebuild, blow it all up in two, thousand six and then keep doing full-blown blow it up for the next fifteen years so. Yeah. I dislike without one was I like The point of history of where that was. So like the Carl Malone one because it's the start of the kings coming to Sacramento. The two we picked is like right at the bottom. Where the kings were bothering bottoming out and when they needed some juice to get back in it but. I think Rondo Coulda kept out run going a little bit longer maybe they could have got some other free agents to keep it going. Well, it's another thing too is who knows rondos going to develop their? I mean when you start your career three hall of Famers on Your Team, pretty easy to get. Kevin Kevin Garnett and Paul. Pierce round on your team but that helps. He has played well and pretty much others including the kings monies way past his prime and slower than he was before but. that would have been fun ones well. Next one. Another one more we weren't completely share that these players would develop same way. They kings drafting Jimmer for debt is. Even on draft night, we were unsure about that one. He played good in a really small school. didn't really play defense there, and that usually doesn't translate well to the NBA. you just kind of weird but the kings could have had. Quite. Leonard Klay Thompson or Jimmy Butler year any of those makes a huge difference for the Kings. Now, each of those again were right situation at the right time. Quite gets dill develop on that Spurs. Team would popovich is go Tim Duncan and Tony Parker Ginobili to learn from. Any fell for a reason in the draft people were just unsure about his gameboy. Now, he's turned into one of the best players in the league. Clay again. You get drafted on a team with. I mean early on those warriors you is always the trade bait to try to get somebody they were talking about trading for Kevin Love Or. different things. There's wasn't like the hall of fame shooter that he is now and maybe he doesn't tell if he doesn't have steph curry. Teaching him the work ethic to be the all time great shooter that he is, and then the other ones Jimmy Butler. Now, Jimmy Butler has the work ethic to act absolutely fit on the Kings, but he would have had to play with Boogie and we're pretty sure they've been like three fistfights tonight at those two teammates I would've loved to watch Jimmy Butler and cousins go out at every night. I wonder if you just wonder like something like that could just change bogey right could change the whole work ethic of the team instead of changing coaches every year. Maybe Jimmy Butler is yelling at these players until they're better that's one of the things that I think about as we go through these drafts, all these groups, and all this is if we could have been at least decent if we would Iran through the coaches, the way that we did or if another player of a high-calibre came on the team with Boogie they've been like, no, it just because bogey wants that coach to go doesn't mean we're GonNa get rid of him. Alive those coaches to be fair or out of the League shortly after that. So strong. All right. The last one I through this one out to troy. Because I really think as many times as we mentioned bogey and these players fitting with bougie. What have we redid that draft now the kings did really well we'll was really well are really good. He's like he's really good stat sheet. Wise. these made all star teams kings obviously done way worse like Quincy. Do Byan. Thomas Robinson everyone we've talked about pretty much every draft from like two thousand, six on was pretty bad They could have had Paul George. Now I don't know what the fit is when Boogie gets drafted on the kings that roster is just. It's dumpster fire at this point. But Paul George might be something. He's a good teammate. He's a good defender. He's a good shooter. From further I've heard he's a good teammate up until he started playing. WHOOPSIE. Daisy around the league teams but. He was pretty committed to the Pacers for a while too so. I. Thought that made a pretty big. would. Admit pretty big difference culture wise I just don't think. At the time he would have been on the team that it would have made that much of a difference they still would have been bad. Wasn't I think getting Jaanus, which would be the one we'd some. Is Going to change your team more than getting Paul George. But then again, it's just you never know you know. Paul George things easier guy to build a team around a guy like. That's true. And you think, I, don't I don't know I just never been a big book guy. I just think that was the downfall of that stretch of the Kings is when we had on the team although very talented. Very. Very difficult to put a team around already even the watch. The bad attitude and the lazy, not running back on defense and complaining about every cell. Colin. We're just not big things have gone on so far. I think that was my number four. but I like the three that we picked I. think those will make the biggest difference for the king's. Going forward. So To sum up again, our top three number one, Damian Lillard and Khris Middleton kinks could add them in two thousand, twelve, twenty, thirteen they got ahead honest. Pretty big difference in eighty five. That could Carl Malone's but web eat for those that would have been at least much more fun teams to watch. And significantly better teams to so.

"Vow dudas. Hear it all. Three run home or to the first row above the monster down the line, and Boston now leads eight, four. Alex wood would. Knocked up would knock on wood, knock them up key. I hope you're right, man. I hope what you said that he will not do the same thing in the same situation. He's getting criticized too much in hammered in big situation. He won't go back to what he did that backfired owning. He already has win Atlanta walking. Yeah, but. This is this is this because this is all the marbles those marble. If you don't get the other marbles play for these marbles. Big marble question. All right. Shut the hill of rose. Atlanta's not Boston, right? No. Feel better about that. You were. You were favorite me that is, you're well as Milwaukee. It wasn't the same and we had to go to seven to get it done. It still wasn't the same because you were favored in those situations this your favorite you. You can't afford to go down two income home you if you you come home and you're to, you've got to win three straight. I think the, I hear what you're saying. But I think that the the situations that he pitched in the towards the end of the regular season, the situation that he pitched in against it Lanta the situation that he pitched in in Milwaukee in the moment key, they were the exact same thing in the in the grand scheme of things. The World Series is bigger than the DS in the get. But in that moment, fresher fresher is exactly the same and he hasn't handled it and yet, no, not would. I'm I'm telling my day skipper potato keeps making the same over and over. Saying that I'm saying he's not gonna make the same mistake that he made yesterday guy light. When you got a gun by is up there. Dylan that he's got all of a sudden steel in take him out because the charts is Damasio would topped out of nearly ninety six miles per hour in the bullpen. That's what they robbers remembers. That's what he's seeing. The guy who's capable of throwing ninety six ninety miles per hour. Now, the guy unfortunate, it's been showing up for us is not hitting ninety. I'm assuming bats is what he's, that's so I'm assuming that they keeps looking going, but I've seen him do this. I've seen him. He's got a really good story is I can't remember when he did his first pitch yesterday though. Yes. You see what happened to it was like it. Hey, do the fire pitch in hit like two feet before the plane. I was like, damn, and then you think about tonight's game. So what happens tonight? Let's go to tonight. Hundred is the starting pitcher and let's say, could even mind you're in. You're in an oh one whole wasp. Last night is this game. If you lose tonight. Now you gotta win four of the next five and you got to them in Boston. So let's say that review gets off to a similar start to the way the Clayton Kershaw got into it last night. And you know, by the second, maybe third inning that he doesn't have it that he's not sharp that he's not missing bats. What do you do? Because I think would you. You have to get this second. He's in trouble. You have to go get him. You have to you. Have you cannot you cannot go down to instill Linda win. When do we close kershow at the home run in the top. It went to nothing. Two one, two, two, three, two, three, two, three. Yeah. So they just kept trading runs back know. But what when did we start to wounded we scar I one second. Shot hit the single shot. The second. So then it was to one correct. Then it became too to win the third, right. Third, and then back to three two. But at that point I think you could steal live with you on the mound at that point because it didn't get out of hand. We brought Wooding because we remember we were still basically at a dead, even lock, even those five four, we were, we were hitting, we're going back and forth. That's only half true. You're right about, would they do us. I'm gonna tell them have the other half is is in the fifth inning when the dodgers had cut it. Again, it was three to three after the top of the fifth inning and the bottom of the fifth inning Kershaw went back out there. He immediately put guys on base immediately put guys shorts those run. That's right. And he was into this. This is what I'm getting at. You don't give review that chance to go give it back again. The second you get back in it. You gotta go in a different direction. How many days off between tomorrow and then on Thursday. Yeah, you got to be careful with arms. I get it. You need. You need in order to win game to make sure that it is. I know that Tim Boswell, some guys that only pitch fifteen and then that's it. Some guys can give you multiple innings like occasionally Jensen or Melton gave fourteen last night or fifteen bias ten. So they're fresh. Balls. Yeah, I took couch and we're in the glove guys, walking back to the balls key out its words have pitched two scoreless innings in game seven, the World Series. These are the things that Dave Roberts keeps thinking about. You know, he's like, I've seen this guy do this and big time situations. I need you around. I need you to tell Dave Roberts what you tell me why you bring up stuff. Dave. That's what I need. I'm trying to because I mean my head because for all of us, it makes sense. Why on earth would you put outs in the game in that situation? And so I'm combing through as we're doing the show through all the pass with, Alex would particularly release situations and I'm going, this is what Dave is reminded of. He's reminding game seven when they needed to stop the bleeding. He went to Alex wood and came through for him game some of the World Series at home. He's thinking about these moments and that's informing some of his assistant making today. What the dodgers did do. Well, yesterday is they made the Red Sox throw pitches. Chris sales pitch count was super highly him. No. Pitchy. Finishes with ninety one. But here here here out once they got into the bullpen, we just went over the dodgers fourteen fifteen and ten and throw Alex wood away because that's hopefully what happens. But this is what the dodgers did to the Red Sox pitching fourteen fourteen eighteen sixteen thirteen. They made all of those guys work. Yeah, all of them. All of those guys had to work. So hopefully there's a little pressure on their pin. Hopefully review goes a little bit deeper, but in the event that he has any sort of wobble and I'm not saying a guys on base and you out the I gotta to come into the game. I think it depends if it's left or right, who's on first second. So I think it depends on who's on bass and what the situation might you might see through? No, I think you have to pretend that he's got the flu and his hotel. It's all right now you deal with Alex was situation like you are, would money where it's not working. You can't ignore, did not work. You leave him in. Will you start to get into the eighteenth any. Hey, you you just keep him over there today to heating. He's the by the way. What was it game? Five or four, but will they extra en- game five, thirteen inning. Yeah, five, whatever. It was the thirteen inning game. That's where he's going to have to pay it. Any in that situation? It's okay. Look, I got nobody left for that was pitchy was for it. I, I have to pitch him and that's fine. This was not a situation where you had to pitch him. You had plenty of Robin game for doubt just had no other option as to roll out Manny Mota in in. Member nose day for into play first base. He got into kicking Hernandez pitch this year. Homerun brighter. If you make Keyshawn NFL power rankings, don't plan on staying. You're going to want to stop by. We gave power rankings. Next Monica, happy birthday. Yes, Monica thirty two years old. Eight. Thirty eight years knows about something else. Thirty thirty, eight years. Old birthday is brought to you by Land Rover, Jaguar, Newport Beach off the Seventy-three towards the sea is Land Rover, Newport Beach dot com. Land Rover, above and beyond. That's right. Guys got some breaking news. Well, as newsy have been saying, explosive devices have been sent out to former President Clinton as well as former President Obama and now CNN in New York has discover suspicious device and the the building the entire building has been evacuated now. So not quite sure what's going on, but it doesn't seem doesn't seem like a good thing. No, no. Keep, but I got him in hit. We may. I gotta pay attention. Hills e in here with me in the studio. So you know what else? You know what else is explosive. Probably in well, that's such an awful transaction. That was just so awful. All right. Last week you had the dolphins at number ten where yet, man. Well, dolphins are not at number ten, this out of the rankings. I can't. I didn't say with the dolphins at all and to number ten spot, I got the Pittsburgh Steelers tie with the Houston Texans at number ten slot. I think when you look at Pittsburgh, they had a by a slide and back in, I think they could potentially be getting lady. I'm Bill back after the trade deadline because they can't trade him. So I think that that will probably work out in his favorite versus there you know that the Houston Texans could have been on the list of worst team in the league a couple of weeks. Guess what I place an awful division. So pulling up the rear at the ten spot is not bad at tie number nine or Green Bay Packers. They sit at number nine. Would you say you already said? Don't look at me. You railroaded me? Okay. What's number I the Green Bay Packers number nine degree. Last week's Green Bay Dado move it on had a bye week. So you know how I feel about buys usually up? Yeah. They're gonna sit tight at number nine, but I ask it again that team to me the Green Bay, they don't feel like a good team. They just happen to have the best quarterback in the league. That's it. Yeah, that's what it takes. Tell me tell me tell me a tell me a bad team with a good quarterback. The Atlanta Falcons who has good. I don't know that they're bad team. They're bad. They're losing their. I just think that they're not in the Lateran. That's right. Yeah. Let's talk to, you know, they're last place. Quarterback has a lot of their office is playing well, I didn't realize this overall their point, but there's a lot of people that don't really know if he's a tear top tier. Quarterback Rams are gonna score points on them. All right. Number eight. Last week you had a bear. Obviously, the bears nowhere to be found. Number eight sliding in there also always, yeah. Well shall be last place, a division. Gene, you had them in your power rankings. Number looking. They were in the week ago there your power went out in a week later. They're in last place in division. Yes, very, very awful. Teams go week to week. You can't keep the teams in. Don't. In in the first place. Anyway. Number eight. Watch the Redskins because they are leading the pack in that awful division that awful division a Redskins they weren't and beginning of the year ahead of me and took him out ahead a minute, took him out because I just felt like, you know, they beat. They beat remai- Green Bay and I'm like, oh, Green Bay's. Not good, but I don't really know what they are, but they're starting to play better or they good or they just in a bad division? No, I think they're a solid team that probably will make the playoffs by winning the vision and get bounced. I think that's what it is. Adrian Peterson's been good and bad when he's good, they're good. Yeah. Yeah. But he's still running lucky hurt. All right. Number seven. Another team, not so powerful last week where the Bengals no longer in the Ricans. Writ you better not buying fathering Article V. God. Carolina crap is winning the Philadelphia in smack their butts now. Really, they came back into fourth quarter. They were losing that they still want smacker. That's so Carolina pools in at number seven. All right. Last week at number six, we had a tie, of course between Vikings and ravens. The ravens are no longer around so they ran into. Yeah. I'll gain they're completely close game to matter. At home to say, holes, thrown team, you couldn't figure out. The NFC what a week defense and you couldn't figure out how to beat them. I mean, I'm just saying who's number six, the Vikings right there by themselves at number six. Yeah, they stay right there because they can't move if you win with from the teams, they can't move in front of the teams that in front of if you hit, you stay where you are, if you lose you just drop out altogether. Yeah, because he's other teams have better. His show traffic. You had RO show me your lightning, both the charter number five last week? Yeah, the charges stay at number five. They almost loss. It didn't matter. Horrible titan team matter. They one. Stay at number five, two yards away from losing. They lose. Did they lose snow? Not how Mike able, okay. They won. Mike Gabel made a bad decision. They're five and to Kansas City and the Rams the only teams that beat them is their argument to be made that they're the third best team considering who their losses are two third best team in AFC in the league in the league. I can't say that only to it's doesn't matter. Lost the Jacksonville turns out his good at all. They can't be the third best team because they can't, in my opinion, hit to hit on a neutral site. They can't beat New. England can be Kansas City. Can't beat the Ramsey probably can't be the healthy Pittsburgh team. I mean, I, it can't probably beat Minnesota, no means New Orleans. There's a lot of teams that they're not going to be able to be number four were the chiefs after a good showing great showing on Sunday night football today, move up, or are they still there? No, they say the same. So we just gonna keep this holistic same. Then from that. Unless you lost your out. The reason Kansas City doesn't move is because they won their game. They did a good job at beating up ten points to doesn't. Yeah, but they they took care of business and they beat up. They'd be on the list this week. Let's see this sheet over there. Stay there. Does Marvin Lewis ever get fired? Because he's they're going to win their eight or nine games. Again, Marvin Lewis is going to win eight, nine games. They might sneak into the playoffs depending on what the rest of the the, the AFC south looks terrible on the west probably gets to. We'll see what happens in the north difficult afire. Marvin Lewis though, is difficult fire because thank you. His team is moving in the right direction at times and he may fight for this division and he's a nice guy. Our number three number three were the saints last week, the saints stay at number number two, the patriots and the pats will stay number one. Okay, great. So we just wasted a top five or here we didn't. Okay. Who's better than ramps? Number one I get, but the better than the New England Patriots, the saints and oh, stop who's better than the saints. The chiefs. Oh, stop better Kennedy. The Vikings chargers. Oh, man. You just if you want me to just make stuff up for you can play radio. I could do that. I mean, I don't wanna do that though, because that's not me. I'm real. We went through it fast. What's the gap between the patriots and the Rams right now. It's close. It's close in re, and the reason is close because a coaching, the coaching on wingless side is just different. I don't know what they're doing. Pretty different on LA sideline to coach of the year. That's fine. That dude over their New England probably got twenty trophies some men. I don't know, but it's just a different. He knows how to prepare his team for quarterback. I mean, it is different. It is different because the Rams have not lost a game in the conversation about whether or not they will is starting to take place. We'll get into it next. They still sound just like this Travis. Yeah, they still don't look like this. They don't look like this. Understand what I'm seeing. The loneliness have been happening. But they still sound the still can't get it with the the soul and the voice. I'm sure they can get. You know when I was in Atlanta, this is practically an awful story, but gonna anyway, I wasn't Atlanta before. The JC when the guy the storytelling music. Now when the magic city story broke with all the players that were clings to it, and I swear to you. One of my first thoughts was PECH. You cheat known as wife. Patrick ewing. I was like, money can cover a multitude of things. If Patrick Ewing can find somebody. I was like. Out the right person. I don't think they were with Pat. Anybody's in his occupation as well. It's just it's crystallize it for me. Everybody else like, okay. All right. Reggie theus. I was like, damn girl, even patch. I was like, I should have been a baller. Patrick live. Listen, he was living to according to the testimony living like one of the MO most, right? He was. The most. Wow, that's when it really crystallized that. That's what it took. Took. Like your question? Yes, pretty sure. Being able to still sing works for them. Sure. Being unstaged as powerful. It is Rams seven, no Packers saints chiefs Seahawks before the Packers saints Seahawks chiefs. The next Ford, the all four. Those games are against something between a good team, two very good teams. They get through that. That's a Levin. Oh, yeah. And then I'll and it's already started you if you flip on the TV if you listen to the radio go online or wherever it is, the can. The Rams run. The table question is already started even though we're not at that point right now, not really a whole bunch in it because there's so much. But let's say you do get to eleven, and most of your tough games are now in the rear view mirror. You still got Philly, but it's here. You've got to go Chicago into Troy their road games, but you've done most of the work at that point. We saw what Sean McVeigh did last year at the end of the line when they're locked into their seed, they couldn't go up or down. He sat everybody in the last game of the season against an Francisco. Do you if you have perfection in your sites, do you go for it or do you start to set up what it is that you need to do to get ready for the playoffs? I think there are a couple of things I play that we've already gotten some insight on. One is som- McVeigh is not afraid not to play any of his players. If he doesn't think value to it, we saw in preseason didn't play all the complaints, all the whispering. They need time. He didn't see any value with it. Obviously, he was right, Willie see value in undefeated regular season. That's a question. Maybe he listens to his players who may be lobbying for maybe players believe. Like he does and that there's something greater than undefeated regular season, which is going into the postseason clearly healthy and trying to win a chip. I would say that the conversations about undefeated season, though Travis shouldn't start until the buy week. That's acco chiefs. That's the, that's the teeth of a difficult opponents Detroit. And I'm not just in Detroit. It's the fact that their stadium team, they're in a stadium and the Rams has shown a propensity give up, huge plays down a field in the secondary, and Matt Stafford has a big on this. He can make some. He's not Aaron Rodgers in terms of he can make you nervous die. She up. He's an issue, big one. He can hit you with the big one. So you need to be. The second. Dice it up. My goodness. But down Travis. But to me. But I think the larger question isn't a about the opponents after the. Bye even though I do Detroit think twice a threat. And I think it's about that San Francisco game in thirty that last game in the CNA really cut him up there and whether or not they value and undefeated season like that in their in their home. That's the question is what is the value of it? And I think it's incredibly valuable because the values on display every season win the Rams lose in, look beyond it, probably gonna lose their, they're probably gonna lose one of these games. So before we even get into twelve thirteen fourteen, we're having this discussion, it's and when they do, we're going to see the dolphins on the sideline. You're going to see all those guys that we see and hear from Don Shula you're gonna hear it all again. Hey member, the seventy two, the only team ever to go through a whole season and playoffs and win a Super Bowl undefeated right the every. So the value we're talking forty years in that still resonates. We don't talk about the team that won the Super Bowl the year after the year before them doesn't talk about that team. Does it resonate because you got all these. Oh, do talking about all the time. Like part of reason is like the movie cocoa like people keep talking about us. You don't go away. What's the pictures off the wall. That's it. Cares tie for the bit of the day of the day that bit at the day, the bit of the day is driven by lawrenceburg Los Angeles on the sunset strip. Travis. What you realize. Relies that if I don't say something nothing's going to happen for me again, this conversation. They're waiting for me to start even looking at me like, say. My side. But even he was like, oh, this is Joe lane nosy, because it sesame the the, the tweet, he right. Has from sesame workshop workshop. As we've always said, Bernie, are best friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics they remain puppets, do not have a sexual orientation. Just friends. They're not lovers miss. He's a puppy. She's got a sex. Let me tell you. Let me tell you something about, I'm fine. You know, loves love, man, love and I'm into it, but there was never a parent you into. They took bass together and and Bert always always came home mad. Like, why don't you clean the house? I'm sorry there. Okay. Look, there's. There's. You know the game.

We can tell us the story to about them. We'll see what happens. Okay now just before we get thought I want to say congratulations because I saw a couple of months ago. You were part of a world record a Guinness World record it. which was at the continue jumping jogging and running for oh? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, for for Culture City yet And, as for great cause for autism, people dealing with sensory needs so so so wonderful, it's a wonderful thing. Yeah congratulations. That's A. that's a great lengthy productive here in this crazy quarantine situation that we're all world dealing with right now. Okay, so the first one. I monitoring is a guy. Who I remember him mostly for his time at the Indiana Pacers, a big guys like six ten sort of a forward center, I think he was drafted in the same draft as you actually. It was a accompanist. Now Thomas Oh yeah they. Yeah What do you know about Lasalle Thompson or he's a? Funny Guy He's a great friend of mine. We go back a long way like you said. We all came out of college together. He was drafted same year. He's He was a brewing boy. Strong Guy Yeah Yeah. He played in Kansas City's in his early days I believe here. In Kansas City right I could start. He had this next guy here. I remember him mainly. He was kind of a backup point guard in Seattle, and then he played some good for the Lakers. As point got off the magic. Johnson retired was after the Showtime Lakers? He He's actually from Atlanta. I believe he's from Marietta destroyed. When the Sedillo three pool there you. Local boy. Yeah. Sedale and I you know. We played a lot of together in Atlanta and a lot of summer leagues play on some of the same teams together play against each other. He was a solid point guard yet I think he's actually add in Australia right now. Where I'm from in Melbourne I think he lived here right now. Long from home. Yeah, a long way for him. He's coaching these kids I think. This next guy well, this is a this is a good cat to get. Because this guy was a great shot, a great defender Hall of fame champion Mvp. He's Donald all in the NBA and he played for one thing, but actually when he got drafted, it took him threes. I think before you actually played in the NBA because he was finishing his education. In the Navy! Yeah I've. got. I play with David to end my career. You know beside the basketball player David Robs the one guy. That's A. Hell of a human human being and glad to been you know friends with them all these years, and had a chance to play with short time at the end of my career, but there was a fun time in San. Antonio, you know. When I was when I was looking back over. Some of your thoughts on youtube is like there's like compilations over ten minutes long of dunking on guys and you've got David one Tom. I remember here in Atlanta because. This is a bit of a trendy because I saw. You got guys like marketing seven four a double pump on Route Sampson and traffic seven four goal. I! These are two dogs I mean. Did you see those guys like challenges or or You what? You love docking on big guys. That was that was the thrill. That's what really got you going. And when you doc on a seven footer man, you know what I. It was something that changes changed the game. It would get you guys ready to go. You know. Bring that energy so remain. It was a to intimidation and wasn't. The end all be all with me, but it was a way to back. Big is up. Keep come. Won The challenge shot? Yeah, I also noticed as well like when you've done. You really try to smash the ball. was that also trying to send a message to defend as like? If you want to try to block these, you might lose a finger or two here. Yeah, that's exactly what it was. This is acne. One was harder. You doc own guys and went to the rack with reckless abandon. Deterred a Lotta guys a lot of times not to challenge your shot. Yeah, that's basically what it was for. Me was the one I mean again. I know there's a lot at the that we that famous Doctor No. But. It's one that people have forgotten about. That's one of your old time. It's been a lot I. think the one I. We kid about in and Bob Lanier and I killed about the time. It was one against him that for nine years after that not speak to me to retire. Editor. Conic moment you know so that was that was an interesting time. That's the baseline you kind catch him and then throw. Thing was I when I went to the middle and got cut off I came back base on jump. and Bob Lanier covered the room with both hands. And as he was coming down I was still going up so I turned into air. Trump my body back around when downtown. I was still going. Through it down at the game, we won the game and. Yeah he did. He didn't like me for a very long. I hope you still continue now that. We brace growth. Unbelievable Spectacle Bob near wonderful great great player Hall of Fame Type, player and He was fun to play against because he's with another guy that was. Yeah I this next guy. This is another athletic God. Big Jump a big Donka used to dunk a lot with his left hand, even though he was a right handed Playa. You. Remember it mostly for the Charlotte Hornets. He fights the Sonics. He plays the New Jersey Nets. Yet beaks, guy out of Chicago. That's okay and I know who this is to do. Dung Conquest. Dunk contest I think maybe he's rookie season in Charlotte. He's still in great shape. I'll say that if. Know if you can see him on Instagram, but he's still in great shape. He's in his early fifties. Very Athletic Guy Six I. Started his green. The Hornets went to the Sonics move to the nets and then wittily finishes career. We. Don't ask go! That's go. I can't think without. Flying Align. Kendall Gill Can Tokyo. Man Yes you're absolutely correct. Yeah. He did. He talked a lot with his left sure. Kendall was an athletic guy. and. For me, he wasn't quite six eight by the right back. White six eight was a half flying. Let's illicit at. What I'm wrong. I'm wrong. You're right. It says here is only listed at six five. Smaller. Than US, yeah yeah. Well this next one this is this is a great one because I think if I remember correctly, I saw one time that the first time you've played against this guy. You went to shake his hand, and he held his hands behind his back, and he and he told you. Don't even belong to League. Is that right? Very bird speed Larry with a guy who tried to get into your especially, if you a young guy coming in the NBA, but one thing he did. was played. That came down and I and I I went to the rack because I really mad because he kicking out, but and I don't. He followed me and I'm talking I'm point. He's a rook I like you. Hot anybody really say set something up and said. You know you got hot and he said when I'm. Still getting thirty five. But after that, he showed me the most respect. Never Talk to ask me after that we. Battles yeah again when you nephew. On Youtube brings up obviously united the big one in the game seven there. Are I mean the thing watching back at that I? Know it's a tough tough loss. You guys that was physical. That was like a boxing match. I thought more like you and Larry just tried lows. Yeah I mean Larry I mean when you talk about competitors. There's not many guys who were played. This game was as competitive. Labor! He had a heart of a lion basketball IQ off the charts. And you know we had some? Some historical moments career. With. The youth. The you'll, you'll career particularly there in Atlanta. Where was the toughest place to win was like the Boston Garden. Medicine Swig on the forum. I mean Austin Garden tough place to win. Chicago Tough to win. On also New, York and La. Someplace, and even in a place like Utah. Was Ray very tough to win and places like that, Detroit. so I could go on and on the arena that you had to bring your a game yet. Denver Nuggets Man. Could they all eat? There was run and yeah. They would try to break the going into the school board on you and so you had to be ready to match their level of intensity. bobble concept happening in Orlando. There's going to be no fans Eddie. Think that's going to impact the game. I mean this. Homecourt advantage you think is going to be sort of crowd when the energy we know is definitely going to impact the game. Anybody think it isn't. there. but He's gotta find some sort of normalcy. Yeah, with everybody, these guys who put in a health and line to go on down to get ready to play, I commend all of on. That part is a different no-one. We've never played in competitive basketball. Where you had no fans. You may have play in place of where you have few few. Fans, so it's going to be a major adjustment. You will say played in Greece and Italy as well where the fans they're probably at a different level altogether as well. It's the most. A world. When the European Championship in Greece. One, hundred fifty thousand people as I was scared to death. But that's how passionate they all. Like what is smoking in the arena as well, you know out there every arena. Yeah, every arena every school. On, it did not it was it was it amazed me when I went to a couple of high school? Talk some kids and every kid. There was out there smoking cigarettes yeah. But. Way Of. Life Yeah Yeah. Different Time as well I these next guy. I think he's also taking the draft. As he was more sort of point, guard shooting guard, he played for the rockets and he played for the box. Really good guy defensively gotTA. Love Steals Very, good very good with the ball. Rockets play for the rockets and the bucks. He was taken about me. Draft in in the same draft as you are believe. Yeah he he's. He's one of those guys who's known mostly for defensively creating steals. And just taking care of the ball, not a superstar. I think he might an all star game or anything like that, but definitely good. A lockdown guy defensively. Whereas a couple of guys. saw that I know that. was those type of guys One Guy Rob Williams but I don't know if I know. He played with the Houston, rockets at one point but I don't know if he played. Any else so. That's another good one. Less. man! Yes, we did. We came up at the same time. Yeah! You. Know Let let's play with quite a few teams and had a long career like I. Say the lockdown defender Type Guy distributed. Get everybody involved when much of a big time score. Yeah, but did all the other things. Yeah, yeah, you need is sort of guys on the team I want. To make sure that I up too many buckets now. All right this next guy so this remember four-time all-star, and just a light at shoot-off was appoint Guy Kinda underwrite at point got even though he was on some really good teams. In fact, you would have had good battles. This team to in the late eighties early nineties there, this guy was just a ninety percent. Free throw shooter. Good good point got good. Shoot a good distributor. Came Out of Georgia tech to. Mark Price a ago. He was A. he wins just a heck of A. He was a great shooter. Use a Helluva shooter I remember. When when he was in college.

The KOMO from Georgia. Tech and mark price came over with your Banjos of a lot of guys I never heard of. And they beat us by two. And that game marked price shot I'll lights out. Who in the Hell is this kid? You. You did hold a record on still do for most free throws made in one game twenty three I think it was. Just broke this year twenty, twenty, four I mean I said to a year ago. I said you know he's going break. It I mean you get to the line a lot. Yes, eventually last year I mean I thought it was been broken last year, but it health for twenty some years, yeah! I mean you know stamina mentally to be out of drain? Continue to make those shots? I must be tough when your glorious. Focus is focused and when you agree score, you try to find ways to score. Yeah, and the easiest way to score is to get to the free throw line. A lot of people would understand that when you get to the free, throw line a lot of time when your game is struggling, those free throws kind of gets you going 'cause now you're all going through the basket and I felt like if I didn't get more than eight, free throws A. A night, I wouldn't plan heart right?

This next guy was. A guy who came out I have at Russia in the light It was lefty started with the warriors. You Pass around a couple of teams, but he's kind of like He's almost like a minute to nobly type play before mono, not as good as Mossel owner. Strong, he's a strong point guard. Oh, my guy he was. Coming out of Russia left goes to the basket to I. Mean you know he was going left and you can still. From going back. Yeah, I mean those guys did sort of set the table for the guys who you know when they came over? And I mean you look now. Some of the best buys Louisiana's. Dinosaurs a freak of nature. A guy at six eleven seven do the things that he does altogether. It's pretty crazy to see now. This is a different one. This guy because. Anew. Anew Euro an MBA I didn't know that you were part of g cues NBA all-star style teams. Some of them Seuss win wear today though I mean. Right. Yeah, this me and Kevin Willis. We was on the cover, probably three or four five years. G. Q. and also Michael Jordan with on Reggie theus Elisa. Wan was also in my brother Jero again with the on before, so yeah, that was a cool thing back then. Yeah, well, the the style certainly has changed as well now. Would you ever wear some of the stuff? Russell Westbrook Whiz that'd be no. No No, no. I can say his own thing you know. Hey, it works for. US. All right this. Is. A guy who played for the Hawks and Pistons and I think he he was a color commentator for. The Pistons and I think Oh Saudi Oklahoma City thunder there for a while in fact. There's also footage of you. You don't him to his teammates down in Miami one day was only one hand slant. Think grant loan. That's in Grand Long Yeah Yeah Yeah grand long the prototypical powerful, it did dirty work rebound score a little You know he was A. he was a Banger type guy. Before what's actually? Do you remember that dunk on the heat where you kind of get it and of the pint and then district? Court the whole front line. That's great because I. Remember you know you pick it up. Your decide while I'm going to the room and they're like. We're going to try to stop you in you on their. Lusa yeah. Destroy might have actually also been defending that day. Another play for the Miami Heat he's. A good player in his early days in the nineties I think he won. He won most improved play one year. He's the only as far as the Lebanese basketball player. We've ever had the NBA. Conduct undersized. Dj these days. Man. I know it is. His Name I. Oh man yet. He played with Glen Rice and I talked about this can't think of his name. Yes running likely Roy Ronnie Cycling Yeah. He was solid play mean he could play both center and forward. Center I would've thought. He was, but you know what. He was tough guy, man he he played hard, and he had hit some Nice Gill Yeah and then hang around very long, but had a nice career Miami. Right now, rolling along got a couple more to go. This next guy. You remember him because. He was a part of a famous trio in the early nineties, but he really made his name as an all star in Sacramento. He's in the hall of fame. And picked up a championship at the end of his career with the like is birth Molin. Not Chris Mullin Think Chris Mullin. Part of the runcie and see not Chris. Okay. 'cause Tim Hardaway and you had WHO's the other guy? The Rock The rock? I I know who I know it. Is There is. Mitch Milky Richman, rookie, year, ninety, nine. He was the rock. Yeah, I don't offer beverage seen. Many shooting guards were strongest Mitch Richmond. He was strong man. He was strong. Strong individual could really shoot the ball handle it. Rebound could defend. You could do it all. He was a guy on video out there. I think it's from the old inside stuff days with Jordan says Mitch Richmond was one of the toughest defenders you have win against because he had that, he sort of had a low center of gravity day. That, he couldn't. Jordan couldn't sort of move him at the way. He was man. He was strong. I mean he regards some small forwards. Miss Mitch Man I mean he was a hell of a defender. I guess when you're on Don, Nelson coach team. You could be anyone. It doesn't matter. What side you? Got Defending a center. Dot Dot Anneli. He started that regard, front and It were Dr James Crazy, but it went like those guys with that little. Though, because Mitch Richmond was a physical individual. Yeah, at Tim Hardaway another physical guy at the point opposite. Size didn't really matter with those guys It's crazy when I see guys like Isiah Thomas Tim, Hardaway. Who let you know all ninety five eleven myself when? With. Out of these guys go at there and go and get thirty in the NBA Assistant Krill. They've so skilled. Unbelievably skilled guys that that knew how to. Score points s by using. Your Body Weight against you yet. We'll get you back. Pat Backpedaling when you get guy backpedaling. It's hard to defend a guy. Yeah, no POWs will come. Bet You and get your backpedaling. Where now you're at their mercy yet. And tosses anything to. I mean they go into the perils? Yeah, that's crazy. Okay this next guy. This guy was a multiple all star. He was San Antonio Spurs. God He was the guy. He was Milwaukee box and I think these picked up like a few quadruple doubles throughout his career. From the position from you a Lotta steals. and the four draught. He was out of Arkansas. Stuff, go. I think he was defiant defensively. He was known as a very very good player. I picked up. He certainly picked up one triple one quadruple. Anyway I think in his career. Directly. Ole Style with the Spurs. He started on all star Game. In fact, the Spurs Ninety Seven. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Spurs have had some place. Alvin Robertson our Roberson Wow. Yeah, yeah! Yeah. He was a rebound in point guard. The rebound point guard, the great assists guy, another guy who tough US nail strongest. Yeah, he would win. The hand check was in our Robson was as good as any guard NBA at hand at the hand check. Because, you couldn't get by. I mean he was so strong. His hands was so strong. He made you work for. A each scored the first ever basket in Toronto Raptors history I believe too i. think that's that's not right. One of those trivial things. All right this next guy Team with this nineteen, ninety four world championships exploded onto the scene. As he came out of high school in the late eighties. High Flying Duncombe and he's six ten. He could run the floor and he could dunk on dudes as well as he's got a few big highlight down, so you never WanNa dunk on was in maybe one or two. There you go, yeah. Yes Oh, one of the most underrated powerful which the play this game the Shawn Kemp. He was a athletic freak. And was explosive and powerful position. They couldn't guard him one woman. He was just too strong, very agile athletic. I mean. He jumped out at the gym. He unbelievable. What's like when you you know you? You obviously against these guys, but then when you ought teammates on these different teams, world, championships and things like that. What are those practice sessions like when you're seeing guys who just like intense. Alfred because John, Nelson was our coach and our practices would like. Go into war all right. We got the last God this is another guy who's a high flier in the late eighties, He picked up a championship late news career with the Houston Rockets, but the is another guy. He was definitely in a couple of dunk contests I. Don't think he wanted me, but. He! He's got some pretty good highlight reel. Drexler. Clyde I there, yeah! That's my best friend. Is that right? He's my best friend. We are very close almost like he's almost like a brother to me. And again when you're talking about shooting guard, I mean he's not ready because he's a fifty greatest player of all time. Greatest I don't think people today really understood to understand how good Clyde Drexler was, and how easy it was for him to get off for. He didn't get the named Clyde the Glasgow Nothing. The guy was like a ballerina sneakers. Did you guys go? Did you go into the. Whole time around the same time. No, he went in a couple of years before me right right? Yeah, see again. He retired soon off the rockets on those championship. That right. Well Nick just before he got more question, he one more card show because. I heard I saw that you dunk to the first time in a game in eighth grade. Is that right? Yes, yes, well okay so in Australia when I was in the eighth grade. I couldn't Donka barely even touch the backboard, but everyone wanted to be like neat. Because that's how influence through your work so I couldn't. I couldn't dunk the best thing I could do. Was Laptop like neak. That's horrible. I. Tell You what that's pretty good because my hair was basically like yes. I'll tell you when I walked into a little barber shop in Australia. In the lights and I said I want to look like dominate Wilkins like who. They did a good job. Man, yeah! I mean that's my school. While man, that's. That's cool. So Yay just thought I thought I thought I'd let you know that that like I couldn't I couldn't dunk like the closest I could get with the same haircut and I. You know what all things considered not bad. Yeah, that's good man. It's been a pleasure hanging out with you man and before during again. Thanks very much. Really appreciate it and good luck to the whenever whenever they're playing boss will again hopefully hopefully it sued, but yeah crazy tom in again. Really appreciate your time Franken.

But the Anti broadly broadly Asian races and the pan-asian racism The PF changs style racism. If you will it's existing is is depressing a lot of these businesses. So if you do have a local again if you're hope local health officials are saying it's okay for you to go out to these public places if you have a local Chinese restaurant or a Thai restaurant or what have you that.

We are getting on the phone right now. Commissioner Evans says his ring sound slower Hello Commissioner Hello Commissioner. You're on with Mitch and wider and our guest Mitch. Snider Guess McCall Yes. I'm very happy to speak to you today. I'm going to make up a statement. Now that I'm GONNA pretend like I've written after which I'll take some questions. Straight Tournament of champions can be described in one phrase this year train wreck. Things have gone off the rails. First and foremost time honored tradition of deciding who the winner of the Tournament of champions goes to has been completely ignored. This is a good point. You know we we know this. We've already talked about this situation. I'm also both Mike. Michelle and have made serious infractions. In this tournament this Mitch Mike Mitchell. Yes had submitted a bracket to the bracket challenge also being a competitor. That's true the controversy so significant in rivals only the famous black socks baseball cheating scandal. Hold on a second mortgage temporary parallel. Is Tim DONAGHY NBA? After that could work yeah the Astros could also work. I knew the answers through three rounds and I still filled it out the old way. I'm not in first place. I could easily I. I didn't I just put in my brain for fun. You fool more incessant use of the phrase APOPKA shrimping so agree GIS but I'm also issuing a fine on that. Wow is also boys photo. Boys must pay a fine of one hundred dollars to me me. Personally let me I can. I just send that one hundred dollars directly to Domino's pizza. I have a hundred dollar bill this finally but if it sees a bull it's reasonable rule. Yes must be enforced. Sounds like he ended up junior. And the Mega Mega AMAC. Or you know the big reintroduced big Mac they. They changed it to the juniors now called the little Mac and the the the big ones now called the double big Mac. They rebranded them. Those those things are reintroduced the venue and they need to be incorporated in the tournament. Wow Wow all I'll now open this up for discussion conversation. Follow up questions. You really didn't write any of that down down right. Comb of his down so much carefully as I would have right. Which do we could tell when you said seasonable. Yeah you added three syllables in the seasonable seasonal. It's reasonable is the rule seasonal threes. You're you're you're at edition of seasonable. I would argue as Pasta. Hey find a more. That's another hundred dollars right. Saddam Susser. Here's here's here's what I say. I WANNA use the you. Song Resurrection Claus. Wow I want to bring something back. That's been eliminated you song as we know weight is wreck economically. Can honestly canonical use on passed away? So he can bring something back from the other side which has been eliminated from the tournament. Yes I won't use you song to say. Say hello to my grandfather. I have nothing in common with that man right. You'd like me honestly. Yes but you know he might nice. Yeah our he makes a living. What do you? What do you think of us on John? He'd be shocked that works for me in any sort of capacity. Actually he doesn't he quit. He's got until his untimely demise. That's right yes. Oh He's dead all right anyway okay.

What you think of that. If Mitch gets to do it I also WanNa bring something back from the other side of a beach thing. If you will to reference the recent game death stranding you are proposing that any dishes to the seasonable. It's reasonable clause with these new items. During the tournament. We will also once again enter to items. That have been eliminated. Yes they're making a fatal four way. This is a precedent that has been established in past tournaments known as fat chance kitchen every items that get a second chance and they would perhaps be resolved on a double. Tuesday's double okay. Well I as commissioner. I am extremely against this tournament. Having items reenter the competition but considering that we texted about this in advance of the episode and the side of this is what we were going to do because it was only idea for the double rank on this one for this one time non precedential ruling allow it. Wow and this will both be able to add an item to the tournament in addition to little junior Mac and super duper MAC or whatever. They're called little MAC and double big. Mac this is amazing. We Admire Your solomon-like judgment here. Commissioner Susser assessor have one more question before we let you go and introduce our guests with the threat of Cova nineteen looming will the scheduled greatest rumble in Saudi Arabia? Still go on as planned. Are you guys making jokes about it? I'm concerned when it comes out. It's going to be very dated for like a week from it coming out. And maybe that there'll be like a death toll in the tens of thousands. I guess if it's that bad by this point or maybe maybe people I don't know well. That was more of a WWe joke. Kobe Joe Hey Susser by the way I have. If you're making you're making late of a very serious situation what that's another hundred dollars right. Have a good and yes. The greatest still rumble is going to be canceled. Wow All right. I'll talk by saucer. Thank you I have. I have my answer for where we're going to send the winner.

Oh yeah you gotta play your drop out dispute nation through that yummy mummy? You have to wrestle. That's why we couldn't find it. She's a Yummy Yummy Yummy. Mummy and she's yummy mummy. She's a Yummy. Mummy nights that is yummy. Mummy fit bird. Remember this sketch. I feel like we played that before. It's possible I will say that little tag at the end. I don't I don't really remember that bit but I think I think it was something like we were saying that yummy mummy was like what they call mill in UK who said that went in and said Yummy. Mummy Awesome Powers Rob J MD. Play my Ding drop. But I feel like we did play already. Well that's up to you. Have a fucking spreadsheet or something that says what's or Martin is red when you buy it again. Morgan is twenty eight. We're quarantined get organized. I feel like he didn't I just feel he. Maybe didn't hear it. Mookie also texted me halfway through that. That's that's that burr got. It was a little got hurt. I don't think anybody heard the nobody heard it. Okay it was. It was a text okay. It's fine nobody heard. It not heard it because we need your so we're gonNA discuss. We're GONNA quickly say where we should send the winner of this tournament. So in pre previous tournaments. This is president established by the Great Jessica. Cab and our very first tournament of champions where she decided that the best the way we evaluate our burger this this was the burger brawl. This is the very first one we did back in two thousand sixteen and must've been. Yeah and it's the Burger so good that this would be the one representative we would give to an alien who had no sense of what of human food culture to establish that this is the idea of what a burger is and so we we follow that in subsequent years with different iterations of it well last year we like fucking gave it to the devil or something. I don't fucking bullshit. Yeah but so. We need the equivalent of that for this year And we we haven't said yet we've we have. We have a couple of we have a couple of things. I have a pitch join us. I think we might have to. I don't know how it's coming. Off of what saucers how insensitive with this okay. Well we'll just say it and decided we'd been mine was the winner gets shrunk down and is given to the corona virus and it's so good that the corona virus decides to stop what it's doing and it takes off see that's nice. That is nice. Yeah that's real nice. It's a Nice Cure. Don't even think that's like that insensitive. We want that to go. We wanted to go. Good mine is that we give this to its menu item so good at McDonald's menu items so good that we give it to Morgan spurlock. Who famously made super size me your. And then in recent years super size me. Tude got him said. Sell me to me would be so good. That Morgan spurlock would make eight another super size. Me Follow up. That said. Mcdonald's is actually good and I was the last one. This was susser ideas that we give it to the Burger King himself okay and he switched sides might actually be the best one. I feel like there's a way that we could combine all three of these Mini-size me with Morgan spurlock I think we should time travel and give it to Harriet Tubman. She did so much hard work and she deserves a burger. Wow I mean how can we say that WANNA seem like that allies say not terrier Tubman? Here's what I think. Yes the Burger King himself. We give it to him. He travels back in time. Gives the Harry. Tony Burke and gets me Harry. Tubman gets a bite and then Burger King travels back through time to give it to corona virus. Yes oh I know he gives spurlock he makes the movie and then everyone watches the movie and then the corona viruses radically yes. Great we shrink Morgan. Spurlock in the burger down got it so like a Rube Goldberg. Like series of events begins with the Burger King time traveling back to give a Harriet Tubman. Yeah Okay I'M ON BOARD WITH THEM. And then yeah. I think that I think eventually merged spurlock he gets aren't down. We never shrink. We never grow him now. He stays little he stays little. It's a little me too. I think if the little he's little Nicole you like us have had to cancel some road dates originally because of the current climate. We are in the current climate crisis. We were in but to use that as the entry point to something. That's maybe a little bit less depressing as someone who travels so frequently. What are your go to roads. I know you're someone who likes applebee's I know that's a place that come first baby. I love me. Some applebee's I love Chili's and I love red lobster. There's a lobster in the town. I'm going to read and then I recently got into chick-fil-a which they had because they hate the gays. But I'll tell you something homophobia has never been more delicious breakfast biscuit things and they're like have you had them they're like literal buttery biscuit.

You GotTa meet me there but you have to have this little breakfast. Thing sounds tasty. I've never had the CHICK-FIL-A breakfast.

Felt all the way down and not just to her knees. I watched an episode last night with These boys will like weird spiky hair. Who all seemed very gay and like they were hitting on each other and then this woman was like I love the circus. You have to tight rope block and it was truly so weird. It was a circus date Wa. I wish I could next your ass right now. Wish you could next year longtime podcast partner next and then Joe Saunders walks in but if you were going to have to give them so much money because the minutes you've spent together amount of money I give you enough to cover such fines and then wow I was so lake next like a like basically all these shows is faced to some degree and I knew through an Improv class. I took years ago someone who was like a PA for an accident at one point like received a group email. That was like.

Why are they coming from me so We're having fun. That'll be me someday. It's not much of a step down from getting seventy five dollars to direct a bugles branded spot for funnier seventy five and that was a little not quite the rate but was much less than that so backing rates were usually less than sketches for these people's like fifty bucks maybe like twenty five or commercial. Yeah Okay that's I've done. This is going to err on television for Hundai dollars deal. We just made like three million dollars. Oh good you should keep that. I'll just learn these lines. Workers being exploited in the entertainment industry like at all. It's bad it's the world we live in a bad time. I used to watch undressed with Jenkin. Oh yeah that's show. I always felt it was not quite horny enough. I was like it was pretty. Never seen undress Horny Show. We will come back.

GimMe some penny pound off too. I have a feeling you can pound off to pretty much anything you want. You know what I learned it at one point in specifically to anything. Yeah you can just look at a boulder kind of curve. I it took me. I learned this conversation highschool where there was an attractive female classmate and one of my friends mentioned like jacking off thinking about her and I was like Oh my. It was like a revelation. Oh I didn't realize you jack off to your imagination. I thought you had to look at Porno. And then we owe it can just close my eyes and think of something in fucking pound off to that. How old were you fifteen? I never realized you could masturbate to point interest. I always thought you watch the poor and you got in your brain and then you went and did your business. That's probably a more efficient way of going about it. I don't know I've tried to mass rate to porn but then I'm like well I'm further behind than everybody or I'm I'm too far ahead. I'll stop and read for them to get. It's like a whole thinks I don't do that. Yeah I get. I get too fixated on like I wanNA find the. I don't know if this porno is adequate. And of course any porno will ultimately do. But it'll be like I don't know about this porno and then I'll fight. It's the analysis paralysis. Where you get. You have just grinning. Sell your decision points because there's so much more no available and you're trying to look for the correct porno and then I'm just a playmate as get this over with no porno when it comes over. He has to leave his laptop outside the door now dirty laptop filled with poor two terabytes of anti knock on your porch. Why do you bring the terabyte?

I don't really mix catch up in ranch together. Yeah that's not. That's not it be catch up in Mayo mixed rice sauce. That's good and I like mayonnaise. This is a new thing for me. I never liked as but I had to build take like a couple years ago and there is May. I want it and I've been into and I was like. Wow what was that was like? What do you mean what is white stuff? And they're like man as I was like. Oh bad is what on earth I know never had no like my mother didn't have it in the house right. Manny's house but roommate now he's got like jars and jars and Mayo. I remember. I put his sandwich from Micheals for the first time and he loved it when we were in high school I I'm not like a huge male. I'm not like a huge Mayo guy but it was around yes. I didn't I feel like I didn't love it when I was younger. I would rather have ketchup or mustard. Yeah we're male friend witch. Not that's really nice. The best place for it. It'd be it'd be one of my favorite sandwich. I also liked it so fucking. Do you like yours with avocado or or just like as it comes. I like it with Avocado also.

Oh can lettuce avocado tomato chicken Blat? Blatch SEIB LATTE BLASTS. Flat flat flat. I like to but also just Gimme ability baby. Yeah it'd be able to use it is. It is one of those ones almost like a grilled cheese. It's maybe maybe in its best form just by default. I've been in a grilled cheese mode into the last year. Back in the grilled cheese Fred sixty-two not my favorite place now. La Order up a grilled cheese. From there I worked out. Okay yeah no they do. They could give you a little soup. The dip it in their great now Mitch. I know you said that you're not going to stock up right now under current crisis. But that's the girl cheeses are pretty easy sandwiched execute on your own bread some cheese. That's it you know what I am stocked up right over there at Fred Sixty two. Here's a tomato and Bacon to it to my grilled cheese. That's nine that's fine. Yeah I like it a lot. I like that sometimes. I just like it as it comes. But here's a question. Though that enough I need a little bit more. I need something well. It's not a very substantial substantial gave. If you're hungry maybe you need to get a little. I get a fruit including the tomato. Tomato is a fruit allegedly. I was raised that it was a vegetable There's been some controversy on that because what it's got seeds or whatever and they're like I mean I think of it as a vegetable too. I think it is technically a fruit. But it's one of those things where it's kind of like come on. It's a vegetable like the hot dog is a hot dog stand. We know we're talk. We've it's the seeds wag. The seeds seeds are what would make it a cucumber. A fruit is my fucking Wang of fruit. Got So that we can tell me first of all. I don't believe that there's any seeds go. Yeah that's true. I was just a clear liquid. Oh you're sick you're not well. It's like an apple at most foresee maybe at the center a lot of real estate to swim around and I was. I just realized earlier that if I brought my I said that if I if I could say hello to my grandpa my grandpa's I told you. He threw my happy meal on the fire. What's my my GRANDPA had oxygen deficiency. So he he was basically like having Alzheimer's like he called me Harold. George those you know my name you know what I mean. And he used to like he would have fires sometimes in like may he would or like close to summertime. He would do put a fire in the fireplace in. My grandma came on time through my entire full happy meal into the fireplace. That was a sad meal was very he he? I think he didn't realize it through everything toy and all into the fireplace. I think Mitch He. That was the one moment where he was fully lucid. Do this kid. I see where his life is heading. I gotTa do something about this right in the fire to do you remember what the way was. No if I had a guess around I mean it was probably one of those nugget toys. Way Back in the day I was GonNa Guess. The still the onward wand the only happy meal toy. We've gotten this month. We've seen a lot of McDonald's onward van to you could have been. It could have been one of those. The three-goal rock ones that you went back and forth. Do you remember that the racist? Yeah I used to have a lot of toys because I figured out you could finesse. The girls who worked at the drive through window so like I would sit in the back seat reminder talking to guys who have no charm whatsoever well all I do is lean forward and you're so pretty and then the girls go. Oh my God. She's so cute. Here's an Xtra toy like got it. Wow here's my here's how here's how this goes for me. Hey you're so pretty media. Amelia arrested comes already there. We were watching you sir. Come with US jeers. You guys are pretty fighting so you you had a lot of You had a lot of happy meal toys. You're saying so many any any favorites threw a stick in your memory. I love this little hamburger that wounded up in like just hopped up and down. I think I remember. That's that's all it did and I loved it and then I feel like I had a bunch of smurfs guy. I think there was this Murph. I think there were some serious then. There was like a chicken nugget box with chicken nuggets inside. I like the little foods. Ooh I think one of those like a transformer is like they transplanted. Mcdonald's I loved misery. Fund I feel like they maybe better. I mean they seem better than this but maybe I'm just wrong. They were just pieces of trash. Thanks build quality of toys. The design was less ambitious. Modern toys have the all these points of articulation. And they're the ones actually meant for children. I think are now now just being manufactured a little bit more cheaply. Maybe a little bit more substantial back in the day yeah. I don't I never. I was always deprived of the happy meal. Though I did covered one. I would go to McDonalds but my parents. I think just didn't think I needed more toys so we wouldn't those one of my favorite happy. I mean I. There was two things one around the holidays. They would have happy meals would come in a in a pale. Jacquelyn Gayle had one of those and I think there was a witch pale and maybe a skeleton Pale. I could be wrong. Someone online is going to yell at me and then also I think even with that pill think you still got a toy and I think one of them was like the nuggets. All dressed up as different halloween creatures. If I'm not mistaken that sounds familiar. Man thinks he used to be we used to. It just feels like it. You used to really celebrate holidays in this. Does it feels like feels like people used to say. Merry Christmas Merry Christmas. What's wrong with being a Christian woman who wants to say? Merry Christmas happy holidays. Everybody coming into country taking jobs away from me. Happy Holidays much took us. His character has evolved. I don't know I ended up. Cowdrey not sure who it is they call I.

Jen's niece got it in her happy meal and Went Nicole and then refused to stop talking about how I need this toy. Wow so then.

I don't know where it is now. I think I threw it away. Finally it's tough when you're like what how do I do I? I don't need this but someone gave it to me and then eventually I just reach boy. I'm not going to be sentimental about this anymore. Yes this is a nice I. This was someone thought of me and gave this to me.

Items evaluation are full bracket is available on our social media. The tournament began with sixty four sesame seeds in four regions that were just McAfee breakfast burgers and chicken sweets and treats insides and more and now been whittled down to eight quarter pounder finalists. How are you feeling at this point in the tournament? Mitch I am starting to enjoy it more because there's less stuff there's less than them to eat seeking savor the McDonalds a little bit more Nicole. I just feel sick this entire month. Which is a bad month to feel sick in? Yeah but a different kind of thing you know I was reading something. I was reading all the symptoms of of Kobe. Nineteen Corona Virus has actually reassuring because was saying the symptoms that are most that are most associated with it which don't necessarily have a lot of overlap with common colder with the normal flu are dry cough shortness of breath tightness of chest those sorts of respiratory symptoms but then listed a bunch of them and way down the list that said rare was diarrhea like you know what. I'm fucking healthy is. I am splattering out shit. Every chance I get a yes I bet you. Kobe's coming in and out of me. So quick they went in. It went in and shot out the Donald can't grasp onto anything to lift right out speaking of a witch today at the McDonalds. We it's in a food for less parking last. It was fucking wild will. Yeah because we are in the height of people hoarding. Yeah and it's a working class neighborhood. A lot of people are just trying to yeah. There's an alternate reason is that there was some great show on sunset closed closed. Yeah Wow yeah improv. Comedy stores close every place close. Close. This virus has gone too far in promising. If I can't see modern I'm writing honestly. It's probably people who don't have time to go grocery shopping. Yeah Oh food in my fucking house. Let's go get dinner for the night for sure. And you know that is that that theater is located and that. Mcdonald's is located in a working class neighborhood. And I'm sure a lot of people are fa guys people with families. We're just like fuck. I gotta get diapers so as I was saying. It's been now whittled down to eight quarter. Pounder finalists the elite eight smelled. At and a recap all the action. So far from this past Tuesday's boys double. We go now to the Dough Center at Bristol Connecticut. With our own Karl Tart I. There were thirty two and now down to sixteen. That's Hafer you math nerd. This competition is getting delicious. Who Will Be crowned the winner of Twenty Twenty Months Madness? I don't know. Please stop asking me mom. But now let's into some of the highlights of what happened on this week's episode the actually heated up on the last. Oh boys double. As Lamar Woods joined the judge. The eat sixteen in the beverages. Mccaffrey region the number one seed. Coca-cola easily defeated the five seed Vanilla shape and measures Irish heritage helped tip the scales for the sixth seed Shamrock. Shake over the two see chocolate shake. Thanks for tipping the Scales. Mitch is the only time you do in the breakfast region. The number four C. Sausage egg and cheese magritte's barely squeak by the number ninety chicken mobile and the number. Three seed sausage muffin with eggs knocked out. Tennessee's biscuit in the sweets treat size and more region. The number one seed fries continued his win streak at a surprisingly close contest with the number five vanilla cone in a number seven Hot Fudge. Sundae defeated the number three Hash browns and in the burgers and chicken. The nine double cheeseburger took out the foresee two cheeseburgers and the number six seed twenty piece chicken mcnuggets defeated the number seventeen double quarter pounder with cheese. Wow I don't know what's going on. Lamar definitely fucked a Lotta that up. If he was the one that was judging things. He's a good friend of mine. But that's wrong. Okay so there should be no reason at the sausage egg mcmuffin. I mean I'm sorry. Not even that the griddle. The sausage egg and cheese mcgrigor should not be barely squeaking by the ninety chicken. Magritte's who the fuck wants a chicken? Mcgrigor I'm getting frustrated and I hope you are too throw something if you have to. Well that's it for another week of March madness as always say Zip. It down zippered right. There's going to be a heart attack tonight. And if you haven't heard me say that again you are not listening to the right things by wow. Thanks Carl stirring recap of what's happened so far. Did you write that Shit about tip the scales? No you didn't write any of.

At just seems like this is love it. I mean it's a nice little tidbit. Yeah it is. It just seems like it's just as you say it's so joyously that's always say everything. I still get the spikes serotonin other humans get did you. I think God I think humans get other humans get. I'm a normal human man. Who's a normal human boy? He's this you're not Mitch. I think elite Ata was your pitch. It might have been came up with that. I'm the genius of the pod. We all agree. We all agree as Mitch estimate. Ib some people will be surprised at some of the stuff I come with you come up with a lot of good stuff like ninety five percent a dope boys actually. I put it this way. If you like something on the pod. It was me. That's what you always try to frame it that way I love how you're saying that as Wagner is reading off this document he's been you have no computer in front of you. You're just giggling over there by yourself. I got hundred terabytes up here baby on my head all right I got. I got your fancying yourself. A men TAT from Dune. Yeah men TAT MENTALITY THERE.

You may still be be confused after you watch all three because it's not necessarily all. It's not necessarily the most cohesive narrative. I'll tell you something. I watched the holiday special. That's my favorite movie. Favorite of the Star war say loved it. I have never loved. Being more was enthralling. The story was bonkers. Diane Carol Singing at one point. It's sexy I. It's a great movie. Have you seen it but not for very long time. What does it what does the day? They're celebrating life which they actually reference in the new a Jon favreau series the mandal. Laurean they so it is Canon in the Star Wars you. Now let's get into another big part of our culture. Mcdonald's I the breakfast region the four seed sausage egg and cheese magritte's against the three the three seed sausage mcmuffin with egg. Nicole get breakfast for McDonald's with any frequency I will sometimes at the airport get a Hash Brown because I fucking love those hashbrowns tune. If I could fuck a Hash Brown I would. They are so delicious. Yeah and they're always perfect. No matter what McDonald's you get them from their just their hot. Ooh and they're like a little oily. I Love Them. They taste delicious. Element to you when you heard that the. Hash browns have been eliminated and the Lord. Yeah I was like what who did that. Who Eliminated Hash Brown? We did the idiots who host saying. It was a split decision. I voted Ronaldo's vote aspirin. I voted I love the Hash Brown. I love it I would say should win. It just makes it just makes also by the way has maybe hashbrowns. He's fucking apple before. Have you talked to Hash Browns? What are we gonNA fuck to only wrap it around my Dick? When we do a fistful I guess to them and crunch them together and make yourself a Hash Brown flashlight. There was we we was. I sent wider a screen. Grab of an Olive Garden Dildo. Who What is it? A breadstick program. we're going to review. It pleased it on. This episode is the only episode. I listened to him. Well you better taste than our listeners. Yes in the East sixteen round the Hash. Browns were felled by hot fudge Sundae. Which explain it okay? I mean behalf on Sundays really is really good and now I understand the dilemma. We'll get into that in a second but right now feel a little. I love it. Yeah I mean I kinda maybe have buyer's remorse because I do love that Hash browns May. Maybe it wasn't maybe it was a mistake. It's targeted against the Sunday. The Sunday's really delicious is great. It always hits the spot. I love the fudge I love. I love how fudge gets like thick with the cold ice cream and then it's like kind of Jewish. Sometimes you know what I'm GONNA say. Let's let's SKIP STRAIGHT TO OUR NEXT BATTLE IN ROQUE? Go back to breakfast on the topic right now. Sweets and treats insides and more the one seed fries the Seventeenth Hot Fudge. Sundae another hot potato option versus a sweet treat. The Hot Fudge Sundae is very very solid. Every time I've gotten it including this current round it's delivered. It's delivered with a level of consistency. I am going to say maybe even higher than the fries. That's the fries are so good when they're good when they are hot and wealth fried and well seasoned with just like they've thrown on that salt and it's it's a recent batch out of the friars outlet Hotlanta for awhile heat lamp for awhile. Those fries are the one of the best things in the whole fast food game. I actually when I got my double cheeseburger. I made it a meal and I got a coke and fries yes and that was the only time the fries were not great in this tournament but they didn't get them with a hot fudge. Sundae so I got them again today and like I say there is a tricky getting the best fries possible in. Ask for them with no salt to make you a new batch. And then they're hot. They're fresh and you add your own salt a great trick as long as the. Mcdonald's isn't swamped in. You're the ASSHOLE. Yes if you're doing it for tastes like dopey and Astle but like move you candidate Michelle to me. Yeah I mean no one wants cold fries. There should be hot fresh Friday Greenberg's anyways we are pro- hot fries. You catch up with both of them both the fries. I look McDonald's fries. This is a top. This is like Duke. I mean what? What's the best team I don't know guerrilla? Oh from the NCAA TOURNAMENT. Cancel our tournament too or no no much man. This is ongoing. We don't have to worry about. Yeah what about the crowds of listeners? There at-home Horn teen theirself gorringe pointing. They're already waiting for this episode to drop the but then the fries I had today were great in every time. I've gotten the fries only once. Were they kind of cold that one last time now every other time they were hot and fresh and salty and good. But what about the hot fudge Sundae the hot Sunday? Look there's a few things that I'm thinking of heart of a champion hot fudge sundae might be. I'm not saying not tipping whether at one or not heart of a champion if you're new to the tournament champions much madness we have we give a award. That's kind of like amidst congeniality at the end of the tournament to something that's particularly stood out. It could be a menu item or it could be a franchise in Previ- previous winners include five guys and Armen Weitzman. So here's my friend right. Now tell you yes hot fudge Sundae if it doesn't win McDonald's cheese just the cheese and general we were talking about the melting as Jesus very solid that sunset McDonald's across the street from UCB which is insane also helped us out so much tournament. It so this is this is a McDonald's that is very high traffic very high volume a lot of people who are maybe need. Some help are hanging out. And they're literally a man and there was yelling at the manager today in calling her a bitch screaming manager. It was the manager. Do I'm kidding. Manage human maybe. They was mad about their French fries being cold. I Call Bitch too and actually it was Mitch doing it on and this is the first time I missed. All right. The reveal is that yes. It was me who was yelling. Grimace out of his Flannigan key. Grimson the pen like a pig. I was thinking more like a bear but yeah that really got me. Well now that you said that grimaces also maybe my possible honourable champion. Pasta and Armand Armand is agreements is. It's just a what it is. He's milk monster. Oh yes he originally grew. Yeah usually while. He's not in a glass. No He loves shakes. Any originally had multiple limbs like extra limbs like Goro for mortal Kombat and they were all holding shot a bug. I think he was sort of like a bug creature purple. They don't have a purple milkshake. Yeah I don't know I don't know what I don't get it. They should have a purple milkshake. I Love I love that too. That's like cartoon World I'll fucking purple. Milkshake would be great. The Hot Fudge Sundae is so good and so solid. Here's what I will. I love it. There is a better version of this. It is the one for my childhood and it is the one with chopped nuts. Yeah and they took the top nuts of the menu as soon because of allergens. Maybe you can. But there was a point which they used to be provided by default and I do feel like that version wins out over the current version for whatever. It's worth the call. Your thoughts on Fraser's is hot fudge. Son Okay. I Love McDonald's fries. I think they are the best fast food fries you can get. They are salty. They're hot they're just the right amount of fried there so fucking good and then a lot of them are long along. Frenchie but then also I really love the hot fudge Sundae. It travels well. I like it when it gets a little soupy and I like eating half of it and then mixing the second half together and then I usually get it with extra fudge because I fucking love. That fudged fudges so good so ace cream is really good it all. It's simple and it's just it's just great and you make the point. It did travel. Well we brought it back here. Yeah it traveled and it was perfect for like what twenty or thirty minutes or whatever it is. This is this is this is. This is tough for me because I'll be sad. Whoever loses but I do think that there is a one. That's that's I mean. The fries are Duke Duke. They are the one seed for a reason. We'll see how they progress on to the next round to the final four. So here's how this works Nicole. We will say but up up up and then in unison. Say which of these two items we think should advance fraser hot fudge Sundae. Okay okay here. We go fries. Unanimous fries to do that to my Sunday but the fries really are so good. They're so good. It was really really this. This is a sad one and I know. I afraid that it wasn't even going to be. I was truly afraid that they're going to be an upset now. I wouldn't be able to handle it because Fraser. The fries are so good. They are duke. Duke Duke Duke. I just started watching college basketball. I don't know college good. It's good it's fun to watch cut to the stands and you see like old grandpa who's like sharing are the eighteen thirty. How old are they There are some that are definitely older. cough it is from smoking around. I every now. Every time I cough or sniffle I feel like the guy in Zambia movie. Who's hiding his bite. I'm just like I'm like I'm fine. I'm totally find nothing wrong with that. I don't believe you. I don't think you're fine. Okay let's move on to remember the dawn of the dead remake. I think it's MCI Pfeiffer. He doesn't reveal that his girlfriend has been bitten and then and she's pregnant and then she gives birth with Zombie. That's everybody knew. And then everyone weight. She was pregnant with Zombie Baby. You've she was pregnant with the baby and then and then she she got bed and then she got big. What does she fuck as Ambi- and that's what you missed. I liked what theory fluxes Ambi- and everyone's got her. Percy got bit by Amazon D- that's what happened. I asked for like holds it. And he's like it's my baby and they're like you got to like drop it dude. It is pretty grim. Zack Snyder good movie. Steady as Dino's direct action. He knows what he's doing. Let's move onto the breakfast region. The four seed sausage egg and cheese mcreynolds versus the three seed. Sausage mcmuffin with egg that we were talking about just a few minutes ago. So here's the thing I prefer the griddles bun to the mcmuffin because the mcmuffin is a net neutral. The griddles is flavorful and dense and that little bit of sweet contrast the savory however it is as a as a result much heavier and perhaps at least in my thought process perhaps head. These sausage mcmuffin. Thank you perhaps mcmuffin. The English muffin component of the sausage mcmuffin with egg being a net neutral makes makes that actually an advantage because the interior components are all the same What do you guys think? I like an egg mcmuffin. I've never ever once wanted an English muffin in my house. Just waking up in English. No by like mcmuffin. I think it's good. The sausage patties like dense and thick. Enough it's not overwhelming. The egg is great the cheese again melting and delicious squid. I think like the griddle. I think I really. I liked that. Their sweetness to it. It is heavier so it is a commitment to be like all right. I'm going to go on the rest of my day with Desma griddle in me but I think it's good. It's just like yeah I like griddle. I think they're delicious. When they were introduced I was so excited to taste. It sounds like this is for me so I'm a little girl. Sounds like you're leaning that way big. It sounds like that. Is your winner yet. I think I remember girdle girl. I got the sausage egg and cheese mccrindle with around egg which is and I also got with. The scrambled flipped over the humane society. Shah got both Nick. We don't have a rule on substitution. We should have a rule on that. I got both you also got substitution later on. I'm just saying we. I'm just surprised. Didn't cover that and I'm just saying to you that got it in all the way and the regular way to see it matched up. I actually think that the mcgrigor sausage cheese MC grills is better with the scrambled egg. I don't I don't think it's as good with the ground. I don't think I don't think it works as well. I I like the ground more than I like. Scrambled Egg Patty yes. Anyway I like the simplicity of the sausage egg sausage mcmuffin with egg absolutely acid. I I I like the sausage cheese McGregor's but I think that the sausage mcmuffin with egg is one of the it's just one of the most classic delicious menu absolutely has going for it. You can you can point to its classic status as an asset. Well I guess we do here. Sounds like you're the fucking deciding. Vote can I say one final thing here is what ultimately is making my decision for me? Wow which of these what I rather have when I'm hung over. I think that my answer is still the same. Okay well well here we go well. How make whatever the judgment however you WanNa make the judgment call between these two very close competitors. We're going to make it now strange. It's just strange but anyway let's do it. I'm saying that that's influence because they're so close for me. What maybe tips the scales is that. What if I'm in that situation because I am not getting already know Mitch? Never tips the scales that's true. Let's say our decision but Saucers raiders. Wow mid griddles your fight off your damn fool. You know that your daily you got rid of the big Mac to you. Realizing I'm agreeing with our guest so by saying that my product in your guest is not a fool. I can be a little foolish at times and maybe I am being a little foolish but I feel like I'm griddles like me a little extra. Yeah I just I just. That voted for me. I am spartacus moment. I'm a MC riddles. Ah I don't know who to get angry. No I'm angry at you. The big Mac. The girl this fucking bullshit. That's going on right now setting off. I'm saying how I feel every Christmas. I'm saying how I feel in my heart and in the next round sausage egg and cheese grills will take on fries in the final fork to see who's onto the championship. Wow what a match up that shells long sausage egg and cheese MIC griddles. Maybe the sausage mcmuffin with egg would be able to stand up to fries but not the sausage egg and cheese grill. Well we'll never know because it has been eliminated unless someone brings it back from the grave on fool next next region beverages and mccafe one seat Coca Cola taking on the sixth seed shamrock. Shake and Mitch. I made a judgment call. Because we know shamrock shake is at a disadvantage here. We also introduced the Orioles Shamrock mcflurry as income being being encompassed by the seed so the coca-cola's taking on it's being it's being it's taken it up both ends from the shamrock shaking the Shamrock mcflurry. All right sorry look. It's getting finger. Cuff shamrock shake. And I got a late night Saturday. Mickey D's Swagger The shamrock shake was the best one. I had altern What made a good. It proved that belonged there. Just it just. It tasted better. It wasn't too minty. It wasn't it wasn't not enough it was just in the it just tasted fresh. I Dunno it just tasted good and I was actually really enjoying it. Felt like it belonged. This battle is tough though. I think that coke is one of the top four items at McDonald's for sure and it's deserved that number one see absolute and so we did this. I did this matchup again today. With the Orioles Shamrock mcflurry. And it was tasty. It's very tasty. I think I do still enjoy the shamrock shake more. But I'm GONNA say this. The Coke didn't show up when I went together to to McDonald's Today. The coke is out of Syrup on one side in that bet like mine was low carbonation and it was just a it was illness and it was flat on both sides. Rarely happens but it does happen occasionally and it happened today in its biggest game of the year up but had say what you say your say your thoughts. I didn't even bother getting the shamrock shake because I know I hate it at this point. I ain't got a better version of it last time I still was like. This is just drinking cold toothpaste. I don't like it but the Orioles Shamrock mcflurry is is. I tell Ya an improvement and I think Emma agrees with me on this idea that it is a by virtue of having. Those blended up oreo pieces. It just gives it a little bit of chocolate a little bit of texture that cuts through that super duper harsh winter green character and has to it and I just like it a lot more. I will say we had a mishap. Here where we ordered our orioles shamrock. Mcflurry is was going to be a mic murder before and the they just gave us regular Oreo mcflurry there and got rectified. Mitch of course came up and made fun of me for doing that. But what are we supposed to do not have oil? We were having fun when I went up there and made forty four. Excuse me here. Mcflurry isn't mindy in front of wire and it was fun and a bunch of civilians. Don't know our relationship. They probably needed a chuckle. Everyone's scared of covering these two love. Birds having a quarrel also. I want to say that you were rectified. When you went up to get that correction trying to see Boehner actually got like erect if I was thinking rectified like so I can find got Boehner. I thought it was cool. I'm here for you. I got it appreciate trump so I wanna say this. Yes you were ereck divide yes of course but you didn't get a new coke you got a new mcflurry. You didn't get a new COQ. Great Point but hey here's heard me my argument. His say you the coaches hoke? The mcflurry was not even the menu item. I ordered I ordered a quarter pounder and they gave me a big Mac. You could have been rectified. This with the other coke. I'm just saying could've you could've done this. They had another coke nozzle which you said also had an issue at low syrup. The one I had low carbonation had low carb carb the other one had though syrup to it. I tasted both of them. Said that. Yeah that's what I saw his side that he got the one that he got in low carbonation just low carbonation. Okay had the syrup. I think that's what I had. Yes you did. You have the same when I had. The taste is pretty wild. Well we got. We got that one off of the good tap. I will say that. The here's my anecdote. I found this fascinating I gave them the to the orioles shit the to Orient flurries without shamrock and I assumed he was going to throw them in the Bin. And then make some new ones scratching. Nope just dumped in some Green Syrup and threw it back up there and mixed them up bit again. I had no idea that it was just the vanilla ice cream with some some green Sierra. Oh you thought it was like mint ice cream ice cream. No Yeah I think. That's other milkshakes to it's a vanilla base with whatever gupta chocolate and strawberry goo fascinating think when I visited my my Relatives in Ireland. They actually. They're the farm that they they have in Ireland. They actually make that Greasier. They make the McDonald's green mints here. Nobody believes you. I'm telling the truth at this table believes you. I've never been more honest in my life right now. Nobody believes you. You've got a twinkle in your eye. A giggle on your chest and you're lying to us. It was a farm. They had they had a bunch of leprechauns and they and like a cow. They LEPRECHAUN's rectified. And then you milking the Mitchell farm makes the Mitchell far makes the green McDonald's syrup right. I can't believe how long you're following three hundred percents. I'm trying to I like did I was laughing. Started saying it bought up up up. Wait wait wait wait. Oh you say your thoughts yet. My Coke was off yes I did enjoy it but also I hate mint deserts. Yeah wow so. I think they're disgusting. I think they should be put in jail. Mitch on the ship is disgusting. Mcflurry this fucking minute. Like what are we fucking doing you in early mailing? I like mint chocolate chip ice cream. It's one of my favorite things you are on the same page with my loving wife. Who Hates Mitt all desserts? I mean it's disgusting like a York peppermint. Patty can literally eat my ass. I don't want I don't want that. Shit y well we know where you stand. Where do we stand okay? Here's Mitchell farms shutdown whether having not having one yes people love mint ice cream and shit like that winds the shamrocks. Let's get to our verdict. Bought up by Coca Cola Coca Cola moving onto the final four another one seat advances both of those just titans of their category going all the way all the way to the big show finally the burgers and chicken regional show. What do you want me to call it? I don't know I like the big show circus. Yeah the big show and has no McDonalds or no dope boys pun. Final the play place. Oh the championship. That child is ultimate. Yeah but we're the final four. That's what I said. I had a big show as another just another synonym. All right all right so I would say hey. I liked it okay. Burgers and chicken region. The nine seats. You're mad at me. No it's fine the burgers and chicken region the Nine C. Double Cheeseburger a twenty chicken mcnuggets. This comes down to mcnuggets or cheeseburger. Which one do you like? These are probably the two savory menu items that are that are people know what McDonald's that care about the most. Do you like burgers. Do you like chicken. Which way do you go? You have some thoughts. Meant this is wild. Mitch's lean back. He's got the Mike and Han. Tae Breath the nuggets. Were so damn fresh so damn good and I had to read. It's my phone but I am best I had in years. Wow FANTASTIC IRMA stolen. She has never taken human food. The entire time I've had really she took one out of the fucking container. She bid it and took it out and was looking at. Oh she's never eaten human food ever. I've tried to give him butter. They don't even eat butter. I've tried to give them butter. Was that a common giving them butter labs butter to your cats because zip zip used to like always try to lick the stick of butter in the house. Okay and so. There's a cat thing like how cats like milk butter out in my house in Quincy. We did leave butter out we. We left it on the table. Oh I know kind of weird also by the way we were talking about showering earlier and I want to say that I do show. I do wash my legs but I don't use. I don't use like a rag. I just use a bar of soap all over. That's insane is it insane? Yes but I showered I use agate every crack and crevice and I get my feet in my legs. Yeah but why not just use a wash cloth or a Loofah? I think there is. I think this is the thing where this is. There is a racial divide here where I think a lot of white people. Just use straight up bar of soap or just the straight of body lotion which I get when I'm with my family that that's a little weird or do you like share that bar. You're all sharing the same bar of soap. Yeah yeah that's weird. Well you got all the same cracks and crevices. I think every crash is different but I just use the bar soap but I do. I do some not that weird because there's people who are much weirder weird no I just. I don't understand why people don't use wash cloths. They sell them in a set. Yeah my issue I look. Do I use a wash cloth? No how will use a wash cloth at aloof one in the past as well and I just find it cumbersome book you know what it's like fucking with a conduct dog in the shower I don't want anything between us. Oh God that read my skin. No I don't know. I think it's probably more hygienic. To use. Wash cloths never got habituated to it. Because I didn't grow up doing it. I messed around with an adult because I heard like oh. That's a better way to around with it. I dabbled yeah I also I have. Soap has like little seeds in it. So it kind of scrubby. When that's fun okay? I think it's I think it's macy's Oh boy interesting. Are you just bathing with a hamburger bun? You're in the sheriff going. I'm the meat I'm deaf. I will tell you I'll tell you one thing I'll tell you one thing I don't say in the shower is I'm the heat I've never said I'm gene. I'm more than I'm more mcnugget. In this in this situation anyways got that out of the way that task she loved him Erma Erma Erma stolen. Never had A. I try to give him butter because they didn't eat any human food and I have butter there and I was like well. The is is what my cats used to love. And then I mean we wouldn't give my cats butter. They steal they go up and lick you and your mom or slabs a better getting into your come and she'd be like Oh hell corny stays out of this she. She mostly just liked it but she took one. I had honey hot mustard sweet and sour sauce. When was my favorite dipping sauces? And why deep down to a burger boy? Yes the double cheeseburgers delicious and they get. Mcdonald's you gotTa go burger you got to. It's what they are. It's a burger shop ultimately you know. But what am I going to use? I don't know I will say that my thoughts mirror yours. Wow as stolen your nuggets game over to your place. We weren't here check inside Aristotle Nugget. I I got great nuggets. I got a fantastic twenty peace and it was. I got it at McDonalds. They don't normally go to because I tried to break this up this round into a bunch of individual trips so I didn't have any McDonald's all at once and so I went to one trip and I just got these basically these two items and I got the double cheeseburger in the twenty piece chicken mcnuggets ended up being my lunch and so I just I. I didn't eat all of the chicken. Mcnuggets it comes down to ten visas however I was going to function and I brought the ten pieces as like. Hey guys here you go. Here's some ten B is a ten if anyone wants them. People loved it. Of course they do. You'll always be popular if you bring some mcnuggets. So I but but the ten beasts that I had was delicious. It was so so good. I got the same sauces. You did except for swap out hunting for hot mustard which is my favorite. The sweet and sour is great. The barbecue you know. It's not my favorite barbecue but if you like barbecue it's nice to have that option and some people swear by it hot mustard. I think is great. The honey mustard. We talked about how it's seen better days but yeah same thing they were they were hot. They were Rashed. They were well. Friday had great meat inside. They were dynamite nuggets. The double cheeseburger was so good. And it's so solid so juicy. The Bun was perfect. The difference of the owners. Here's here's what I would say because the double cheeseburger. I'll let me step back a second. Let me let me say this again. The double quarter pounder with cheese was defeated by chicken mcnuggets. In the previous round and they lied. At so how can the double cheeseburger which is effectively a smaller version of the double quarter better with cheese standards about the chicken? Here's what I would say. The balance of components is better. It's not too much meat. And it's the diced onions versus the sliced onions. That you have on the double. Qvc prefer the diced onions. Give me them little onions. Okay so sounds that we know are saying. But I'm saying that that gives it a chance I guess mcnuggets which are stalwart of this competition of the McDonald's Menu Nicole buyer your thoughts on cheeseburger versus twenty restrict. Mcnair mine gets where delightful delicious. They traveled. Well they were still slightly hot. I hadn't had mcnuggets in a while but they were so good and I was like ooh pay. These are delightful but then I bit into the double cheeseburger and I was like. Ooh This is it. It's the only thing I finished. I had a bite of everything but I finished that double cheeseburger because I love. Mcdonald's double cheeseburgers. I think they are delightful. I think they are delicious. I also like the little onions. Yes I did have to peel off my pickle but some for some reason the pickle didn't like taint the rest of my burger and I was still very pleased with it. I had a great time with that Burger. That Burger I. Would there's mustard on that bad boy by default as well? Now there is. Is there by Default? May perhaps they On the quarter pounder. There's muster the double cheeseburger does have the the chopped onions. Didn't even clock the mustard. That's how much fun I was. Having the other components overshadow president did not know that. Your Your House with with a double cheeseburger a mustard. I thought I hated mustard but I guess I'll fuck you because I love that Burger. Well this is a this is a tight one for you and Me Mitch. But we are going to issue our decision. We're going to say which one gets the last invitation to the big dance. Yeah here we go but double cheeseburger. Mitch that nothing Mitch. Remain new twenty peace mcnugget after the bell but it doesn't matter because double cheeseburger advances in a two one decision to the final four to take on Coca Cola for a spot in the champion Jau. What what a what a competition we had today. Wow to recap sausage egg and cheese. Magritte's advances to take on fries and Coca Cola advances to take on double cheeseburger.

It's good it's it's heavy but I don't really taste the butterscotch me. Neither seven heavy about it. But it's not butterscotch. No it's just like a very thick steer up European corn syrup but it has a very dense character to it. But I don't really get the butterscotch. I still like it. It's not bad. Certainly not certainly far from bad. I'm going to take a bite of this cookie while more root beer is being distributed. Emma cookie what do you think of that bad boy I love it? I love it beefy. Cookie very beefy. It is. It's like a hamburger patty size. It is very thick very thick. You can taste the salt on there too. I like that a little a little but only a little bit. A lot of times like salted Caramel have too much salt on them. This is a perfect low. Bourbon keeps US legs away. It's great yeah. Do you usually have a problem with slugs on your cookie tasting? The cookie. Vermont is a STRAP SNACK. Very good very very good. I'm taking the second root beer now. Which one is this? Mitch give me a recap. It's right in front of you know.

Here's a Brownie. You also made a face with this one. It's these are thick. Sodas boo-boy this one's a little much for me and it's like this one is quite a bit. This tastes more buttery to me. I agree that when it more buttery. Also it's like more fragrant. Yeah and it's even thicker than the last one but I don't take any sort of Brownie or caramel. I couldn't I put her scotch. I concur this one tastes like butters blind taste of me. I would think this one was the butterscotch one and the other one was.

It's just too intense. I'M GONNA say a split decision on on drinks. I'M GONNA say this one stank and root beer butterscotch drank.

I Love Best Astros. Lupus statue ice cream. It's byproduct sashes had to be up there peanuts. I'm conflicted with. I do like them and I love peanut butter so maybe that goes far enough but also. I don't know if I if I can eat as many peanuts as I used to be able to. I feel like sometimes. I'm getting an allergic reaction to them if I even a large quantity like I have like a peanut butter sandwich. I feel like my body's reacting. Do I feel the need to get tested or so for that reason? I'm a little hesitant to include peanuts. What other nuts are there? Have you ever had like street peanuts?

Pull you have about getting another episode of the Steam Room. And so I'm trying to figure out 'cause it's GonNa be a knowing either way to try try to get to Atlanta to be up to Christmas so now. I'm trying to debate whether to leave the day after Christmas at six. Am because I think airport probably going to meals zoo leave Christmas night. Yeah and see because it won't be won't be as crazy get out on Christmas. I hate land in like five in the morning. It's the worst job. No I'm done for the rest of the day when I read on anyway Turkey out by then so so We always start as we have since the first episode With first of all yes first of all you know. You have a lot of money when you get cheerios. Does I've had to regular cheerios rat. A motorcycle who makes me dollars. Maybe I saw zero zero zero. We're in the steam room. Is this a chance to blow off steam. Yes this is deputy blown off steam. Well first of all I want to apologize. Tau Steam producer. Tim Kelly. I made a mistake before the season started because we have another jackass who works at names. DFT Fiorello Steve of course is the longtime director of inside the the NBA. WHO's the biggest Cleveland browns fan in the world? And I made a mistake a jumping on the Cleveland Browns Bandwagon Oregon and I was talking crap just like Fiorello. We're going to the super bowl aimed out even have a dog fight between Cleveland and Pittsburgh but I was riding new die with Carello. So I'm dead. The Cleveland browns stink and they mountie annoying. Won't ship the hill up guys. Talking about getting me out of here is all Zoll on. The coach is as I get no it Ernie Baker Mayfield Fan. I don't dislike him. I was all jocks to best but the one thing you have to understand about our business Arnie. When you lose and you need to shut the hell up I mean that's the way it is being works? Works all these talking heads on television as long as you win and you can say what you want to. You can do what you want to but when your team stinks stinks and you keep talking. It ain't a good look. So Cleveland Browns. I'm sorry I Apologize Mr Timothy Kylie and Mr Fiorello a never gone drought. Jump On your bandwagon again and you can actually apologize to. Tk later on and this podcast broadcast off some steam. Take serious note here for a second. I WANNA give my thoughts and prayers adjust Gordon. I feel so bad for this kid because it's like I'm watching a bad movie. I told you I went to with my brother. I'm like I know how to move is going to in. I mean my brother didn't have to die. Forty forty but he he like in about who get hooked on. WBZ We got a really serious opio at being out there right now. When when it gets its it's claws into you and like I say and I know our used as analogy? Two of my favorite people are George Clooney in Mark Wahlberg. Ah every time. I watched a perfect storm. I'm like come on. You gotTa make it this time and they never make it. They drown every time. And when I speak to kids about drugs I says yeah. Yeah that's how to move is GonNa end if you get involved with drugs. You can't control it. You can't do a little bit of drugs you have to stop and it's all complicated now with the marijuana legal in all the states which I'm not a pot Guy Guy. I smoked pot five or six times in my life. Automate me. We'll do is eat potato chips but I wonder I really wonder. What was your chip of preference lease and pringles? Yeah but we digress. Going we digress. But I'm concerned like number one. I you know there's some jock side there who talk about it. I have no problem that they want to use it for their health Alexa like I said. I don't know how I worked. But if you guys want us to help especially football players I got no problem with it but I wonder in X. amount of years if make pot legal in all these states are not gonNA come back to buy airs. I I think about that. I worry about it because because at some point is I think it's going to be legal in all fifty states at some point but I wonder if in ten years or more Airbus don't be walking around smoking pot in these people are going to be driving smoking pot and we don't have people just addicted to pot and I just I just worry about that aspect of you know what I've never been to and I know it's one of your bucket list things and you were there again this past weekend for the Army Navy game and what what I thought was really cool. Chuckers you took underdog with you Joe Underhill who's our researcher on the NBA. And so tell me about your weekend in Philly or your Saturday in Philly for army navy. Ernie I told you last year was that was my buckles. Go to the Army Navy game and it was everything I thought it was going to be. How different is it than going to Auburn? Game Doc. In terms of excitement fans into it getting their early things to see well at a different wing Alabama Auburn Ohio State Michigan. USC UCLA SILLY BILLS FAN bases hate each other. Best to difference dare is so much respect and the Camaraderie is. I just WANNA on a beach all today but it's so respectful and that thing would do after the game what lose team. The winning team has to go to the losing side and seeing their Alma Mater army had to go to navy side this year. They go second though did they go to the losers I mean. Can you imagine. Imagine it did Alabama Auburn Georgia would go to the sideline saying they don't see that so they go to the losing side. I out of respect. Then they go to the winning side and seeing the alma mater right to get everybody is at attention is to cool is fine and I listen. I really one of those days jokes. You don't want to beat the traffic you want to be here for before the game and you want to be there to watch all it has to stay in washed a singing that's awesome. I mean it's an amazing thing like nobody has left like and they give you a couple of seconds to get everything together and get everybody to the silent. But nobody Bodley's is one of the coolest things I've ever experienced. So what has to get this like the patriotic blood pumping in your when you're when you're at you know earning I did a USO tour for a while back. I went to Iraq Kuwait Dubai and cutter and the first thing that comes across is how young. They are Dr and man to to put yourself in. Harm's way live. That type of lifestyle is admirable. I've always had respect for anybody who had to curse him. Go in any form of service but man when I went on a USO tour. I was called off Garba. How young everybody was but man you have to be a special person to want to live that type of life you go? Oh from that on Saturday where you're seeing flyovers in your service members and in that on Wednesday night if you watched two or you walk up to a Thursday morning to see that. The president of the United States has been impeached. I mean in the span of those. Yes several days how I would just I thought about you when when this was all going down. How do you view that I just feel sadness? I really just feel sadness because number one. Nothing's going to happen. Nothing's going to happen and I'm we talked about a little bit last week like these politicians Democrats and Republicans. They just vote along party. Lines like me and you will. The Democrat Republican Alderman White Black Alabama. Georgia like the action is to action. I'm not going to say well. I'm a Republican and I'm just going to vote this way I'm a democrat. Just GonNa vote this way and I just get disgusted. These politicians aren't doing their jobs. Do you feel like you should have been impeached. Based on what you've heard through all the hearings you feel like this was a wreck thing to disagree question Yes I think he should have been impeached but I get mad. I never talked bad about the president. Because he's the president of the United States. I'm an independent lean toward a Democratic Party. I'm just disappointed in the way. The President President Acts The way he insults people the way he tweets all the time sometimes mean things because that to me. I get mad at East jocks. Who Don't go to the White House? I've been to the White House twice. It's a privilege I don't care who's in a Republican Democrat to me. It's an honor to go to the White House and they made eighty political. But if I got a chance to go to the White House like I say I'm not a fan of president trump but if I got invited to the White House I would take it as a badge of honoring. I mean. That's an awesome thing. How about for an athlete? WHO SAYS IF I show up there it's like I'm endorsing what he's no? That's not true. That's not true at all because distinct has gotten so out of whack right now because it's so politicized I'm pretty sure it has been athletes in every sport in history of society. Auty didn't vote for one of the president's was in there but still thought it was an uninhabited to go to the White House. Is the most prestigious office in in the world and say whether you're Republican Democrat that guy. He represents the United States. I think Jim Brown somebody. I admire respect. said he says regardless of you like trump or not. He's the president of the entire United States. I don't think everybody voted voted for trump is racist. I did not vote for him but I don't think everybody voted for trump is racist but my thing hanging is being president. You have to. You have to be above all the free you have to be presidential. You have to be presidential and I think when you tween bad things about people in calling them. Cowards in Liars and things like that I just don't think there's presidential not really easy to transition to another topic after that but let's let's turn to happier brighter. Yes let's do this. It's Christmas season. This is is our last show before Christmas. I love our last show. Before New Year's what okay. So you love it for the kids. Do you love it for yourself at all. I indeed look in the Christmas Spirit Christmas carols do you listen to music from Caroline. Another thing I'm not saying you have to be Carolina. You can have on your playlist. Christmas Smith songs the only Christmas. What has a couple? I think I could listen to that. Morad Carey Song every day for the next month. Because I think it's the greatest Christmas song ever which all I want all I want for Christmas you as and now it's number one for the first time right I. I don't know why issue number one every year. I mean it's the most amazing song take Michael Jackson. Santa Claus is coming to town. Those those were the only two songs I listened to about Nat King Cole. Ernie US US only person who's old enough to know who neck kick comet apples King Cole. First of all his guts roasting on Ashley committing at your Millie Bonilla tiny tots. Go ahead. Okay you know is all aglow. We'll find it hard to sleep tonight. I go ahead. I'M GONNA have a heart sleepnow thinking about you saying it but for me. Christmas is interesting because once you get money and things like that people don't look at you two saying anymore like when I when I was beginning life opin have in love just like you get your family and friends stuff and they loved it but then you start making money looking at you like did you get me something something good and it's frustrating because it's supposed to be the thought of giving just said hey man I bought you something because you a a good friend right. I bought you this because I'm just thinking about you but then when you get in a position like myself people like what was that that all you got me like what's your car last year. You only got me a sweater this year. Though I'm like yeah I'm not gonNa tell you what you next. Oh you bought me a house wasn't it. Oh Oh you bought me an outfit. Yeah because I bought your house last year. What do you want another house so I get frustrated people? That's why I'm a firm believer that only cash Gifts I think you should get gifts up to eighteen. And that's it. I like that idea only kids up to eighteen. If I was King World I would say you had to buy your family France step up to eighteen and then after that you just give them a hug and say hey. Thank you for everything I love you. It's interesting that you said that because you no what it got to the point and I love Christmas. Thanksgiving is my favorite day. Oh my God favorite holiday but at Christmas it was getting me frustrated and in taking me out of the Christmas spirit because like Sheryl an-and I would set aside a day where we'd go do our shopping for each other there. You know so we're going to spend you can spend this much money. You're going here. I'm going here and it was like. I'm just buying something to buy something. Yeah because she didn't really need it. I didn't really need it. And so we have for the last seven or eight years we take any money. You're going to spend on each other and we go to a store near there are House and just pay for folks stuff until the money runs out all split and it has made the biggest difference in how we enjoy the Christmas season. And that it's it's not about. What did you get? Oh you only got me this. Why did you get? It's like let's surprise somebody and it's an awesome way to do it. Well that's so cool that you shared at at. I never heard that before. And I'm GonNa give you some love because you know when we do our show Bring a bunch of kids in and buy them gifts. which is really cool? Because I've been doing that in Arizona for years go to a homeless shelter and take a bunch of kids to target a Walmart and give them a couple of hundred dollars which is interesting because it's money earning because you give them two hundred dollars and some of these kids are so amazing like as A. Hey Two hundred and they buy ten things and there's some of the kids by one thing and man the group sit around like that kid right there. Some of them are really good with math. So I'M GONNA come up to like one hundred ninety nine dollars ninety five cents and Mr Barclay and then somebody kids. They'll just buy one thing and it's cool but to get back to my original point us us guys on the show. We're all successful. Been blessed to have a great life and make a great money and when you said a couple years ago guys ask which is bad stuff guys who got everything and you says. Why don't we bring a bunch of kids in here and APP to me when you say? That's a great idea. Because it goes to a great idea for two reasons number one check only going to give us crappy gifts that he endorses. So we got tired of stuff that he endorses of a secondly. The look on those kids faces. Because let's say anything we want we can go get. But the kiss who don't have anything to go out and brighten up their Christmas man. What's good for your soul? So Oh because like like I can imagine not getting entertained for Christmas like even see my mother and grandmother. No matter how are we were. We always got something for Christmas like we like. They made a conscious effort effort. We're not GONNA be the only kids who don't get anything for Christmas. I will always appreciate that one reason I got rest are so but to be able to be like. Hey we can't get y'all stuff to after year but do we always got trumped up for Christmas and Dan that sticks with me when you bought it up. It's amazing but you know what also points out to you. Chuck is that there are a lot of MOMS and dads out there. Yeah with this time. Some of the year are really hurting because they want to give their kids do that kind of Christmas and and maybe they don't have the opportunity got to do it and so anyway we can try to help somebody and make it happen just like I do when we bring those kids in Komo remember when we got him bikes and his young girl says I remember the look on your face. Melted your heart. She says it's my bike for real and you said Yeah. Sure she says and she says for real for real issues us. She's I get to take it home. Yes we said Yeah. We get to take home but that purge joy for somebody who hadn't been jaded by all the stuff. Ah nothing like it. Hey Chuck stor with the New Year looming. Are you going to make any resolutions. I WanNa the keep losing weight much of you. Lost forty pounds just quarrels to forty pound barrier got about I want to lose about another thirty five. How you doing? Ernie wanted to great decisions. I made this summer. I got a bike really a stationary bono. Nowhere road road bike and because a friend who sets tires you're going through on that bad boy three but besting testing ever Ernie because what it does is get bored riding a stationary bike. But I'll just take off for an hour hour and a half and just ride ride around out in Arizona Arizona an impression flat yes. Are there a lot of cars that where you're at. I'm in a rich neighborhood. Not a lot of cars I don't live in the city I live in the suburbs. Come on man. I'm going to still people still have to drive automobiles. Yeah but I'm in an area with all the Folks Okay Oh yeah yeah they they just knocked me over But no I is one of the best decisions I ebony and like I say I don't feel like I'm working out. I do like riding bikes. It's a good thing. I gained seventy five pounds when I got my hips. I was getting really fat and Lazy. 'cause you know the fatter you get the less you WANNA work out But what's amazing like I've only lost forty. I got thirty. I I don't think you realize and I don't mean in a disrespect in a fat person out there because I mean we ought to make our own decisions but I don't I don't think you realize how crappy you feel until you start losing weight and my boxing trainer. Joey he's been amazing with me. Also so when you start losing weight you just feel so much better right and I can't wait to get this off of me And that'll get me about twenty eighty pounds twenty five pounds over my playing weight which was to fifty okay so good so I don't think I'd have to kill myself to get down to the two fifty again but being twenty pounds overweight won't hurt you. healthwise good you had resolutions in the past. It can't be good got two new year's resolution I`Ma be on lost fifty pounds and I'm GONNA learn. Spanish have had green beans every day since in January. The first we'll take yoga.

The Steam Room

Bad Luck Chuck

"Please don't touch the Thermostat thermostat. Please keep your towel on. Welcome to the Steam Room Charles. Barkley podcast with me Ernie Jones. So you're supposed a post to keep the towel on in his team room for this steam room. Okay okay for this team room okay. I can tell that you're not a but Yo you told me you always really towel on. But that Ashley is a debate you try to steam up. I mean this is a bait whether you keep the towel on or not. I do keep a long. If there's other folks in there I keep the toy. Have you by yourself you take off. I will have the towel underneath me. Yeah I always have a tile on me but I always clean on slide around. I always sit on a towel but I always cover up just out of embarrassment. I think it'd be welcome. Everybody thanks for spending some time with us. If you are listening to us now you can officially officially be referred to as a steamer. Yes yes you can wear. That label proudly as As we interrupt and and I hope my man from Australia last weekend you can call us up a loyal steamer got our shout out and send out a lot of information. We hope everybody have two people over in Australia. We've put a real earnings earning and a team put a really nice list together. A different ways to help but we really appreciate anything can do those people in Australia. Indeed we do as we start. Start every episode of the Steam Room We go first of all first of all first of all. You get hunted cheerios. I've had two regular Cheerio for you know in about ride a motorcycle. Who makes millions of dollars eighty zero plus zero zero home? It's a chance for chuck to blow off some steam. Yes Or just a voice an opinion and so what's What's first of all first of all is GONNA be about to Kansas Kansas State Malay brawl so whatever you WANNA call it it was not a good luck It was not a good look for Kansas Kansas State for college basketball. But I think there's sometime when guys get on television we WANNA play God judge jury and I don't like that because because I always try to stay stay back and said okay. Let me think about the second. Don't worry about my initial reaction. It was ugly. Thank oh goodness. Nobody got hurt but we have to realize number one. You should be suspended. You should be suspended But these guys who want these guys banished from college basketball banished from their school. I I don't like that because these are eighteen thousand nine hundred zero kids if everybody in the world on television television ticket take a step back and breeze man. I probably did some stupid stuff at eighteen. Nineteen myself and say just breathe like I say it was not got a good look. That should be suspensions. But I think banish in these kids when they're eighteen nineteen something really really really really stupid. I don't think that's the right way to go. I think they should be suspended. But also it's the rest of the regular season essentially what for Silvio Sousa. Yeah I'm holding the chair here his head before somebody knocked it out of his hand. Whatever was not a good look but more than that chuck wasn't just not a good look? That could have been criminal. It could have been but it wasn't right so that's actually a great point. You made if he had gotta hit somebody with a chair whatever they suspend you. I can't argue with but because he didn't do it. You take a step back. I thought I was hoping for ten games but but the point was obviously just. That was stupid and he can do that but I just don't want to jump on college kids like I do. Pro Pro guys. Listen I mean we're all stupid at eighteen nineteen twenty years old. The way that things started in the closing ticks blowout game and a steal at midcourt. Ah leading that led to it all at but also standing over the guy after that so there were a lot of things that contributed to. Who would yeah I came from? Kansas state was wrong which he got lost in all of this because all the stupidity on the other end the court put Kansas not trying to run up the score. You know early I listen. Let me let me tell you something. I'm not proud of some of the stuff I did as a player. WHOA WHOA I've said when God's shooting threes when you're up twenty knock the hell out of him? I've told my teammates. I've called a team meeting on. Of course they we're down twenty. The game is over. If Anybody Schuster three knock their ass in the stands as hard as you can I know about rubbing it in but Kansas wasn't trying to rub it in they were up. Twenty my manage driven boggled. Let the clock run out so if Kansas have been trying to score I can understand candidate get upset but if they're just just trying to like we're up twenty game. I'm just going to clock out. The game is over and you hate to see it spill out into where fans are sitting. We've got you've got handicapped accessible wheelchair seating right down there too and if you've got layers all over the place and an innocent one thing about jocks. They're big strong guys. If you hit a fan you could really hurt them could hurt a fellow competitor. And you don't I want to do that. But if you understand one these fans grab you or something like going back to the Malay at the palace if a fan hit you need big O.. Dues hit a fan. They could. It really hurt them badly. Then you had like you said you had two people in wheelchairs over there It was just a bad look overall point I wanted to make is this is a teachable. Moment they were one hundred percent wrong. I don't WanNa sit here exact like I'm defending these kids but less be careful as adults trying onto say. Let's just throw this away. How long would that Mark Desouza in for as long as I don't know how long he's going to play? I don't know what kind of a career he's going to have if he's had a career after after college ball. How long will that incident mark him for life? But he can't let it define him Same thing with myles Garrett who's a hell of a player player the way society works is Ernie. You see it sometime. When I'm reading tweets on bleacher report and things like that if a jock do something wrong bring up some? He did ten years ago and no matter how much success Mississippi Desouza has people always going to bring that up. And that's the the way it is especially if there's another instance in it yes something happens. Well he's no stranger to this. Yes yes but you can't let it define you like Myles Garrett. WHO's a hell of a player? He made a mistake. A series mistake to me is over with our daughter suspension for the rest. So season was fair. I Hope Commissioner Goodell's let him back in the League but he can't have any more screw because the first thing they gonNA show is helmet things exactly Coming up next a little bit of a new segment here on on the snow. It's chuck versus is the Internet uh-huh Chuck versus the Internet. I don't know exactly what that means. I don't find out. We know that I'm aware because Internet as full of idiots. Uh back inside. The Steam Room Charles is a lot of things but big. Big Internet guy is not one of them. Once we had Steve Bomber on the show. You didn't know. What a browser was you? Once pronounced Wi defy we fee crew true true so the in this new segment intended to bring to your attention the most topical viral all stories that the Internet is buzzing about. That may be a bit off your radar. This is Charles Barkley versus the Internet in your story number one okay so the NFC championship Game Eh. You could go there. And you're niners gear. You could go there in your packers Gear Rob Lowe. You could just go there with a hat that's NFL a not an NFL team pat not one hundredth anniversary of the NFL had just a a black hat with the shield. There were some on the Internet who said He was dressed as if he might have to. Sub In for an official got hurt and another said when rob lowe goes to a concert instead of getting a souvenir banned t shirt. He just gets a shirt that says the music. What you of the Rob Lowe Look? Well first of all. I've met rob a few times in my life. That's a pretty man. That's a pretty bad rob is a pretty own. Hold on Roblo Reggie theus. I use Rick Fox who you got. Oh ooh that might be the hardest question I've ever had to answer rob blow rick. Fox is okay. I can't answer that question. You can't it so I asked. Him Was Washington game when they showed a shot at Dan. 'cause they went to a Promo of Rob's new show So Robin. I think it's called nine one. One something Texas or something like that but A listen rasberry and a good company me man. They got him tickets to show him and promoted show. He didn't WanNa be a homer or or any favorites us. Yeah so I get Raba Shot. aww right it's very good. He was great in the West Wing. West Wing West Wing is one of the most underrated show. Because that that that's somebody like Mr Sheen's name marching. It is one of the Great Actors Number One and societal people civil rights people. He's done some amazing things but he's somebody I really really admire. What else assane almost fire? Anybody see saying we did. Of course of course we did more and MILIO estimates on how to He was he was yes. Who's WHO's the do ally sheedy? It was either. Yeah it was it. Was that whole Brad Bragg by which is was brings me to one degree movies. It's about time the breakfast club. Oh very much the same group guess. Yes but Judd Nelson. I know but but you know the I like movies like that because that's really what high school is like. Everybody has their little group and they really really don't even realize They have a lot more in common than they realize. which at the end of the breakfast club? They figured it out. But you know we so stupid when we're young young Ernie like you get what your click and you go to high school were you in a click. Click Click and I didn't realize that I was a jackass asked to later. People didn't resent you 'cause you were making straight A.'s. Add a buddy guy go to story number two yes. Let's keep this the story. Have you heard of. Have you heard of bad luck. Chuck I have not the you'll enjoy this during the AFC divisional playoff game. Chuck Pin Hin. Is this guy's name. He posted a Selfie as the exit. Arrowhead stadium the chiefs trailing twenty-one nothing Kamata here get the second half Comeback Open. You can't do it. Guy Lead Man. It's the only hope so he leaves and you know the chiefs with that huge comeback and they beat the Texans. So what kind of loser fan is that this. This thing went viral viral and so he became the superstitious figure he was banned from Arrowhead by the superstitious chiefs fans. Patrick Mahomes was even asked about it during his post game. Press retold bad luck chuck to stay home for the AFC see championship game. The team got involved. They gave the guy a new grille as an incentives to stay home and not attend. The title. Game Against Tennessee was green. It and he I I hope he obliged and the chiefs one but that's not where the story ends because now they're going to the super bowl and this cat wants to go okay so this this is. This is a once in a lifetime moment. Ever seen our team play in the Super Bowl. I've at least got a B.. In Miami chief spans want him to stay home. Niner spans spans. Want Him in Miami. What do you think bad luck? Chuck should do from one chuck to other oil. First of all he got my name but see. This is will fans so my daughter. Who's the greatest thing ever happened to me? We we had weird to found on a four and she's dead. I WANNA come to the final four. As of course are get your tickets. She caused me like a couple of days before his dad. I changed my mind and I'm like Hawaii. I don't WanNA bring bad luck on the team and I'm like wait a minute I pay for you to go to Villanova and Columbia and you're such an idiot you think whether you at the game and not has an affect who got a weird game. I started laughing so hard as a Christian. You acting like a crazy fan whether you're lucky shirt you at the game and not has no effect upon the game right so chuck Tuck Ban. Listen if my team I got two teams. The Atlanta Falcons I grew up. River Falcons everybody in Alabama roots. Fighter Falcons shutout Julio Jones and Mattie ice and now I'm a Philadelphia Fan but if I had a eagles animal cardinals fan because of the Great Larry Fitzgerald. And and congratulations on buying a piece of the Sun. That's awesome but man go to the game if you a real fan and I've heard this before for my nfl friends. And and I got to visit this place. They said Arrowhead Stadium. It's allowed a stadium and NFL. I've been to a lot of. NFL Games but people tell me. Kansas City is the best place to watch. NFL Game You know. I went there one time. Chuck stor and it was for Joe. Montana's debut wow wow in a preseason game because we had it on TNT so it's a preseason game the place was off the chain but it's it was allowed place but it was really weird appeared to have a preseason game. It had that kind of buzz. Yes yeah So are you saying there's nothing because I know you've played with guys who have these superstitions. who have to put their socks on the same way? Each it is in major league baseball players. Get a jump over the foul line. Don't step on that or I've got to do this. I mean so you don't you don't think it has any place Stanley. Play but for an athlete. Do you think it. Maybe there's a comfort level that says okay. I've done everything the way I'm supposed to do it today or oh lie. pre-game got got a little disrupted -rupt on the Ashley. I think that would hurt. Your game would do. I think that would hurt your game development superstitions because of everything. You didn't have any none. No Oh come on no. I did not have any. Because take about already if you if you do your superstitions thing you have a bad game. You're going to be flustered. That's like one night. This actually happened on our show and I remember. I can't remember who was announcing the game and this guy had a career night. One announcer says well he needs to do it drives to the game exact same where he did the other day and I asked to call them on idiot on the air that night that's idiotic because first of all you you you get to the game. There's got the least amount of traffic. I never drove to the game. I would check the traffic report and when it is what I'm planning for the I would find on a way to navigate the traffic but I I would be terrified to develop superstitions for the simple fact if it didn't work you'll be so screwed up getting ready for the next game so I think superstitions. Hurt you more than they help you. So you're not even a little stitches. No not at all. Okay Hey when we come back we're going to bring in a guest another steam and we call them special guest yes well special special special steamer guests and I'm not even going to tell you. The grammys are coming up a little bit of a shout out to Lisa keys. She's she's not she's hosting. They got special guest over. Do we ever. And we're going a long way for the special guest now. We're going to Sweden for this special guest also The PJ Morton is nominated for three grammys for his R&B work Grammy's are this Sunday. Last year he walked away with a Grammy Emmy for his Rendition of how deep is your love. which was unbelievable IOS on there on on the vocals them just tremendous and and he is nice enough to join us from Sweden? Where it's approaching showtime about an hour and a half 'til he takes the stage yes? Cj Nice of you man. I appreciate it my pleasure anytime you guys call it man. I'm I'm here. He's been a longtime friend of our show inside the NBA and man is just so cool for all of us. Who who know you to see the way your career obviously playing keys from Maroon five is is one thing but your solo career is taken off as just sensational? And what does it feel like to to have your work nominated for three grammys this year. It's a really old for me. You know I I've been working working at this for for a while and for people to still care in for that that You know those group of people that group of people to acknowledge my work and like you know. Think it's good enough to be We we made some history this year. This is the first artist ever to be nominated for rb albums. Three years in a row and it's It is mind blowing to me man and you know I I really love music. I really still love this stuff So for people to still care. It's just it's a beautiful thing like you said I've had success with Maroon and You know that could have been enough. That could have been enough. I have been so grateful for for the banned but now to also individually get it. It's just like It's it's a beautiful thing man. I'm so grateful when you like for anybody who's successful. We all get aspiration. You saw something something or somebody who says I want to do that. Who is the person of people when I know I want to do that? Right there. For you Yeah there there were a few. I mean I my father you know. I watched my father as a pastor growing up. preached is to people and really touched. People and I knew that I wanted to do that. Make people smile. Make people happy Give people hope you know so he was the first one and then I I heard stevie wonder and I was like man. I got you know because as keyboard player and a singer I was like I wanna do i WanNa do that. And then I saw prince don't perform on stage and I said Man So those are kind of three big ones for me. That kind of changed the whole game for me and let me You know like kind of Forged me on my past of like one wanting to do it And like you know something you can relate to but I you know even seeing this wasn't music a seeing Michael Jordan do what he did You know Kinda soaring.
