"rick barnes" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Between the two maybe knows something whispered to mouth Spena who talked to Miller Miller put it out there. Like it was first hand. I don't believe it was firsthand. I believe it was probably secondhand. But ultimately, it doesn't change the scenario where I think they it could be legit because there could be a little pushback from Kyle saying, you know, hey, John, we're not there yet. You know, we do have a mediocre line. And we the quarterback that you wanted over cousins has not been able to stay healthy, and we have a fragile wide receiver core. And we don't have all the answers on defense. And you know, what I'm saying? He may be saying you're kind of setting me up for like because it played to me when I heard Lynch say, hey, we're ready to win games. Like he thinks that he's got a roster. That's bursting with talent. And all they need is a healthy Jimmy G in and plug in Nick Bosa and away, they go on to ten and six playoff dreams that may not it may not go that way. It also could have been no now again, I wasn't there when he said it, but also. Could be like, hey, I know everybody's frustrated with what we've put out what I had my fingerprints on. But now we're going to do it. You know, what I mean just more more than I'm and now we're going to do it does suggest like I've put together. Playoff roster. And now it's on the coaches and for on the players to win the games. It's a little bit. Like, look what I did in. What have you done? I mean, seriously, the Niners are not one of the more talented, rosters and pro football. They're just not and Mike person is is he's a nice guy. But he's not he's a nice little piece. But he's he's, you know, he's not a foundation piece stud guard and your receivers are fragile and your quarterbacks fragile in your defenses bad until proven. Otherwise, who's fooled by it. I mean, it's nothing to improve a secondary. You're going to take a hey now, we're ready to win. When you're you know, you're literally looking at Kella Witherspoon and old man Sherman on the corners there. I mean, that's not Jalen Ramsey. Patrick Peterson form leaving the house today. I it's another radio show. Everybody's got opinions. But it's crawling across cowherd, right? As I'm getting ready to get in the car, and he has the I guess it's after the draft and he has his run. Down and got the patriots number one. He had the forty Niners at eight or nine as what best teams in the in in the league. That's glowing. Yeah. That's what I'm saying. So he he's buying whatever somebody selling, I think. Garoppolo the only number the only number that matters is that they're ten and twenty two. Yeah. And actually on Twitter this morning. I put out a poll question for the audience. I said the Niners are ten and twenty two through you know, first two years of the Lynch Shanahan regime. What you know, who would you say is most to blame for ten and twenty two. And I gave the three options. I gave the people were John Lynch Kyle Shanahan and Trent and Trent baulky, by the way, you're listening to Gary and Larry on Cambier San Francisco HD two San Mateo. These sports leader, aren't they? But I put that poll question out and so far see eight hundred sixty four votes since the beginning of the show. Seventy six percent of the people say it's Trent baulky who deserves the blame for the ten and twenty two record nineteen percent of the fans say John Lynch only five percent say cow Shanahan, so just has done something clinched as little brief little nine less than a thousand people voting on this Twitter poll, it seems that nine our nation would blame Lynch over Shannon and for ten and twenty two. And I don't know. I mean, I don't know who's more to blame. I don't I know that they don't have enough talent. They don't have a number one rusher. Maybe they do now in both. So they don't have a number one corner. They don't have a number one receiver. Maybe they do now in deebo. We'll see. Yeah. But I'm just saying they had some significant needs. And for John sit there at the end of the draft and kind of say, all right? You know, we've got the town. Now, it's time for us to go win games. It's almost like saying to Kyle. Hey, man. I've done my job. Now. It's on. Yeah. What the hell, you know? What do you mean by that? I would vote to if somebody asked me blame Lynch and bulky. I don't know what what bulky bulky is gone. I guess I'm I hate when a guy's gone. And he's the reason we suck. Now seems like you're framing the guy longer here. But my deal is Shanahan's of proven coach in the NFL not as a head coach yet. But he's done it. Lynch has never done anything at the executive level in the in the NFL. So I would I base it all on what have you done? Lynch has. Well, we'll see what happened the draft picks haven't been sensational. He did get Garoppolo and that's ground. Has been hurt. And he hasn't been very good when he did play at through picks and got Sacaton. Yeah. So we'll take some calls here. A moment. I do want to mention only because I'm always I'm fascinated by the student athletes, and how college sports is is is such a rip off Larry. You gotta read this LA times story, it they somehow the times somebody leaked it to have all the notes of how they went after their new head coach and UCLA used to be the king of college basketball, but no longer and these notes have that they almost had collar pari. Right. And but it was the basketball and the F department having to check with the boosters on everything, hey, we can get Calipar. Can you give us more money? Can can you somebody come up with the money? And if it was a big enough name, they came up with the money. What was the guy the Cincinnati coach you got the job Cronin. The crown and he was there at the beginning. And they said we don't want to pay him enough. I'll come up with the money, but collar pari at the. The end of the day. They the booster said will give him forty five billion will give him almost two million dollars for assistance. He can have eight assistant coaches they'll have a private plane for his use. And here's one and a monthly catered meal for Calipar staff and players then at the last minute Calipari got jacked up to nine million in Kentucky and he backs out. Then they go to this. Rick Barnes count, by the way. But he knows cow party knew that he was just he was flirting with everybody else to get control. You never wanna leave. It. Sure. Didn't look at look that way. They asked Jay Wright. Plus, he cheat Reno a guy who basically cheated his way to a good resume. Yeah. I mean, he went to two final fours that he had to vacate. And yet he's not vacating any this cash vacating any of these country club. Memberships are these cars are this incredible? A place for them because they treat that as a as a pro team. Then adds Jay rice got LeBron the role anytime he wants school kid column. Oh, king could you? Here's the kids number that like seals the deal on most top roots. But then the boost is fast. They say go get Jay right at Villanova will double his salary whatever he's making. We'll double it. Jay Wright, wouldn't even go for the interview. Then they took this guy. Rick Barnes at Tennessee. And and who is very very credible Colfax. He's coach was coach of the year in college basketball. He almost accepted the offer. But then he said he went back to UCLA and said, can you get me some more money? Of you know, he was gonna take between five and six then he wanted more in the booster said the hell with you. And they ended up with with Cronin for half a wet anybody. But you have to read the story, and I go on the phone. It has better hair. I had no hair. But the deal is is that when the kids get nothing, and these guys yes directors they're merely just little front men for the boosters faggots, Casey Wasserman you hear his name all the time. He's he was the big booster who was going to make the contacts. He's yield movie producers son, Lew, Wasserman's, son, art Spanish daughter works for for Wasserman group. I'm throwing that in. But it was unbelievable at the end of the day. Just to see how they had the Email and text back and forth with the boosters who were controlling no thing and on Cronin. They said, no, no just give him this. And that'll be that'll be sufficient. Yeah. Yeah. And that'll be anyway, it's fascinating. Living in Cincinnati, Ohio. Now, he's living in southern California. Be happy with that. Brian yours you're talking Jimmy g go ahead. You're on Cambier. Okay. Guys. He so for Larry your your question about who's to blame. Yeah. Who's the plan? Yeah. So I'm not arguing with you or anything. But but I had the guts to stand up to Larry. Go ahead. I think you gotta add in Jimmy jeez injury. Because if they want six games the previous season with him playing what about half the season. Then excel plate that into even if they won his extrapolate, Brian the problem is those end of the year games. You don't know how hard the other teams are going. You know what I mean that last game? You wanna go back two years? The Rams played all reserves. So it's it's here's the thing. Look, it was a Twitter poll question in Twitter only gives you three options. So I had to go with. I couldn't go with Jimmy injury the four oh, you all that Mike fourth option at Mike. I could add Jimmy Johnson in dick. Here's the thing to lean on injuries. It's just not, you know, it's it's pro football. And there's all kinds of interests. I hear you though, they lost their starting quarterback. And that means a whole lot. I mean, you heard Nick boasts to say on draft night the Niners pick second. But they weren't the second worst team in pro football as year they just pick second because they had the second worst record. Yeah. So I mean the Garoppolo injury had a profound effect on their season. There's just no getting around that. But I just was trying to say who would you actually, you know, the record is the record who do you put who owns that record? Is it Lynch's record? Is it Shanahan's record? Or do you put that more on bulky for the disaster that he left these guys? All right, Brian without extrapolating. I'm with you though. Let's see what Garoppolo does Lynch Shanahan with a full season of well who they think is a good quarterback. They're certainly paying him. And then and then. Will really be able to say, I'm sorry, John. Maybe this isn't working, but you gotta give them a full season with a good quarterback. Agreed. Yeah. Very true seven, but per sheet, the call seven zero seven says this is the segment of the show, Larry kicks, John Lynch and the nuts. Bob from Sarah, kicking anybody in the nets. I'm just stating the obvious. And that's that one. I'm not I'm basically trying to put the perspective of reality into this Lynch Shanahan report. I don't know that they there's a rift I'll take Shanahan his word that there isn't a rift. But what there's what's on doubted, undoubtably or wants, you know, you can say undoubtedly is that there's somebody in that room who talked to somebody who talked to Matt Miller, my guess, it's somebody talked to Matt malice bean and Green Bay talked to Matt Miller, but it could be anybody. It could be anybody from it could be anybody who worked under bulkier anybody.
Barnes says buyout likely kept him from taking UCLA job
"Tennessee's men's basketball head coach Rick Barnes with media talk about the vol season as well as his interest. He showed another jobs Barnes was incredibly transparent. When asked about what would happen, if you say prompts pays five million dollars buyout? He says I think I would have been the coach UCLA I've said that the people before I really felt at that time dodge, what would happen and by ourselves being okay for Barnes to admit. He would have likely left for UCLA if they paid his buy out. I kind of like people who are honest. But I mean, this is the guy who had Texas should be one of the best jobs in college basketball, and college football, it just should be the booster money is absurd. The state is enormous. It has a disproportionate influence over the recruits in the state. You know, it's not like USC UCLA. There are people that grow up wanting to play football, professionally who wanna go to UCLA parents or Bruins, vans or whatever, Texas massive state. But the university of Texas has this stranglehold over the public imagination that state and Barnes has had that job before he's had that big job, Texas, a big job as my point. He's gonna want it again. He just had a really nice run in the tournament. He's all the leverage. I respect

"We're hilby reporting live. From Gusta national all week long. So after flirting with John Calipari and who knows who else? But also Rick Barnes and getting him of the pay raise that I assumed he would get UCLA finally said a little bit Cronan on Tuesday. And he is officially been hired as UCLA's coach your thoughts. Norlander Mick Cronin. Now working in Westwood. I don't dislike the higher. I wonder what the contract terms are inter like not the contract terms. I wonder what? I can tell you right now. UCLA had been in contact with Mick Cronin Poletti before this happened. Okay. Yes. Mick cronin. Wasn't the first second third fourth or fifth choice that doesn't reflect well on UCLA. There are also instances in the past were guys who weren't the first second third fourth or fifth choice have gone to school and wanted being successful. Certainly could be the case here. But. The status of the UCLA job. And what the school is willing to do and willing to commit to. I think I think we'll be interesting there. Healy Cincinnati having gone to the tournament the past nine years only once we sixteen UCLA fans if you are under wellm by this. I guess I don't blame you, but Kronen has operated at a top twenty five level. I would say undeniably over the past seven to nine seasons. And so if you're the UCLA. Athletic department athlete director you need to minimally get a coach at that level. It doesn't reflect well when you have these public swing and misses with Calipari and Rick Barnes, and Jamie Dixon, and the ones behind the scenes, like some bigger names, frankly, Tony Bennett, or you know, I even heard of that, you know, UCLA just because when you are running a search like this you owe it to yourself. You just say Tom Izzo. Are you willing to leave state to to come see what you might be able to do out there for second? Because. No, you shouldn't ask Tom Izzo. It's the dumbest thing in the world to ask Tom Izzo. He's willing to leave Michigan state for UCLA. I always hear every year and to interrupt you or. I'm gonna do both for a second every year. I'll see somebody. Sometimes they're even our friends who will tweet something along the lines of will. You know, you've got at least pick up the phone and call Jay, right? No. What you don't have to pick up the phone and call Jay, right? Why Jay writes, Jay Wright is icon status at Villanova forever? He's a Philly guy..
Cronin leaves Cincinnati to take UCLA job
"Hey, hey, Jason before we Chadha here. Couple of college notes are of note one. I hope the warriors bring back Chris Mullin in some capacity. He's going to step down as head coach at Saint John's. It sounds like the, you know, spent thirty years at Duke and watts Bobby Hurley to leave ASU to to. And then the one that came down. Just now Mick Cronin is the new head coach UCLA which me Cronin. Leave Cincinnati to take the Bruins job. Rick Barnes opted to stay at Tennessee. Instead of instead of or go to Tennessee instead of instead of take the UCLA job. What do you think? What do you think of those three college Garrett sells weird like if you guys remember Oregon like about eight or nine years ago had an opening head coach and bass warned everybody Tom Izzo. They made every play every coach they approach basically got a race and they settled on like their seven choice. Dana Altman, we'll guess what? Six or seven years later day gets to the final four. So I know Mick Cronin in number one target probably four or five or six, but think about a guide when you making a move on your girlfriend wife at the time before she became your wife option. I don't know that I was, you know, sometimes you got a, you know, just be happy that you get picked down the list for you. Jay were you were you an undrafted free agent. Were you a seventh round pick? I hope I wasn't. I never asked my wife that, but I have joked around with guys who whose wife is hotter than them as my wife is more tractive than me. And I'm like, you're not your life. I choice, but to the overachievers club, Gary the overachievers club going my old lady. Did you did you romance with money? Did you do give Bela's? What what do you think? You you got to wonder over the podcast. I was working at a newspaper in New Jersey living in a studio apartment twenty five thousand dollars. Here. We didn't meeting her a month later. I said boy, I gotta get an upgrade here, and I left it pathetic newspaper industry and just made my rise to where I am now in. Yeah.

We'll gets them. He gets four him. Okay. Overperform you pick ODU over per. But I want I'm picking a route for it. All right. I'm taking the root for it. I have seen Purdue play once this year. One thing I'll say for you. Good man-to-man defense. Mary's overbilling. Mary's Saint Mary's with the aga- win. That's a high seat for them. And they won the big west. So they couldn't put them in a plate now. Right. If you win tournament. Yeah. You're not you're not allowed to being the plane as. Do you think they would have gotten had they lost? I know they would not they would have been they would have been right on the bubble. But no, it would have been much tougher. I like, I do like, Tennessee. I thought you don't like for Jinya. No, I do. I think for Virginia comes out of that. But I have three seat. It's this nocco there. I just don't you think this year's that way? Though, there's eight or nine and really good all their, and that's it. I. This is going to be a lot to be. And maybe a lot of lot of like fifty three forty. So let's go to the binding let's go to the bottom Gonzaga holds onto number one seed for two reasons they were a good team all year long. And even though they didn't play anybody. Good over the last two months, we'll say because they had conference schedule there in the west. And you know, I hate to say this. It's a television show. You want to? To say. I will say. Pissed you get Syracuse happening. I just was looking at. I can't look at it. They win more. No win that game gemstone against Consol. No that.

They will win because that chips Onis impossible to prepare for. It's just and he knows exactly what he's I love him. But he knows exactly what he's doing. And then they're going to keep those Sweet Sixteen. What who else and then you have floor? Look look Porgy saga. If they get through the match up zone. Then they gotta play Florida state who are. Problem. It's one of the only ones that can match up. So do you think that Murray state? This is the region that could get broken. Stay directly far cats. Marquette has had grad layers against one that's gonna be fun game Murray state, if they could do you think the racer rant? Do you think the John Moran needs a good tournament to be in the top three or four? Now. What if he gets shut down completely by Marquette? Maybe he drops one or two kinds Howard guys and take some see him. I see him projected to Bihan. Really? Yes. I mean, I don't think he'd top five unless he goes in. I mean, here's the thing tone, the reason that he would be drafted that high is his athleticism and. You have a patch shooting. But he's unless he looks unethical which seems to me can't look as leda was did nothing in college. Graphs didn't Marcus bolts. Serving and is Tara. Drafting to your point of does it hurt. His draft stat was drafting over one. I mean Zion is going number one. And then I think it's a little bit. In between two and five little bit..

"By the way, on twenty enter poll question regarding Russell Westbrook versus James harden vote early vote often at ESPN radio, which player do you feel is going to win an NBA championship? I is it harden, or is it going to be Westbrook? Zayn williamson. We just heard the package there. Mike regarding Zion. Williamson and and by the way, before we cannot go into the Myron medcalf column on ESPN dot com. For those of us like me part of hashtag NBA Twitter, and you'll be part of it as well. If you want Mike, I mean, you did cover the league back in the seventies. So you know, you can be part of that can be grandfathered in. I'll get you. I'll get you in NBA Twitter. I'll let you win. Should see an exchange. You gotta make sure I get all the parties in Indianapolis with an all star game gets there in two years. I got listen. I got you on that hoodie because I'm already starting the process now. All right. So you you bundled up because it it will be February, and it will be cold here in Indy. I already hit up Candace Parker interviewed her a couple of weeks ago. We're all set for the all star game. As I know you're gonna have a party because I know you from the Shire said, you gotta make sure I'm part of the Candace Parker party. She's like, oh, I got you could comma Jonathan on the list and make sure I'm not standing. Mike upon that. I will come to. I will come to town for that. The all star game the cookout going to be interesting. The next being the mid west the next couple of years, but John Calipari supports lowering age limit for players to enter the NBA draft. This is a piece written by our friend. Myron medcalf from ESPN dot com. And John Calipari said that the NBA's new proposal to lowered the age limit for the NBA draft eighteen will change college basketball for the better. If it's adopted this comes from the USA today. Mike you about Thursday. This is shortly after what happened design Williamson blown out of his shoe in that game against UNC USA today reported Thursday that the NBA has formally proposed changing the draft eligible requirement from nineteen to eighteen party said it would be he'd be a static. If the change meant that players who did come to college stayed longer selfishly. I remember a time were college basketball in the big east someone in the big ten as well. Was just much must watch television. No matter what. Because the battles. They're still battling twenty thousand nine hundred still appealing. But the thing that's the difference. Is that some of those players stayed at least three years, and it it really became compelling basketball. Now, the one and done rule is where a player is there for a year. And also you don't see him anymore than he languishes on bad NBA teams. They're going to be seen again in some ways. And I hate that. So so for me selfishly if I'm the one that's in control of this. And again, I underline the word selfish either you are out of high school. If you feel that your NBA ready, maybe Williamson feels that he was ready out of high school go to the NBA tryouts. Try your wears you, would you can do or to the college football rule of being in college for three years, and that's just from a fan more. So than the economics of it. And I know that's unfair. But I'm just I love to see college basketball. Get back to where it was back in the day. So no flexibility. I mean, could you come with a compromise? You you can't be take two years out of it. Two years. I could be swayed man, you got the money I could be swayed incidental. He's got a lot of money. So I think they can take care. They can take care of that. But you know. Yeah. I get I get what you're saying. I give what you're saying. I mean like you take a team like, Tennessee. For example. They are loaded with upperclassmen. I mean, that's why they said at number one for most of the season. Rick Barnes played a lotta upperclassmen. They play a lot of freshmen young players. But I it's just a whole. I just feel like there's there's got to be some type of compromise between the NBA with the NBA. If a player is eighteen years old. And he decides the road is because he does not want to stay in school three years. And I can totally I can understand it. If a player things I use one maybe two years of college basketball to set myself up for an MBA. I get it. Why they've been saying I don't wanna wait that long. I don't care about school. Unfortunately, too, many a lot of kids go to college knowing that they're going to play an MBA they're gonna play professional sports. So they school is not a high priority. And so if a player decides come in high school, so I'm going to go try to get to the he doesn't get drafted. He is he has nothing. He can do. He's done. He's done. Yeah. So that's that's a tough position players who don't want to be in calling for multiple years. So if if I were to kinda compromise with you, I would I would say given two years three years of the longtime. They have to stay in college. It's fair. NBA? That's totally fair. What you're saying is totally fair as you're listening to Dickerson hood on ESPN radio and ESPN app. Here's the thing. We always. Is is just grading on me the injury situation. What if the big two words entertainment what if questions about injury? What if there's further injury Seth Greenberg. Zion's value won't go down with further injury, Zion Williamson's value. Even as an MC L even has an injury. Harry Giles was the twentieth. Pick in the NBA draft here. Joel Embiid didn't play in the tournament. All right. He Saturday full year. He was the third picketed draft. He had a shoe contract and multiple national endorsements Zion. Williamson is going to be one of the top three picks in the draft. He's gonna sign maybe one of the most lucrative shoe contracts. Threes, even God forbid, something should happen. So as we look he's not gonna destitute if he plays in government. Something happens are moving forward. Duke has been really good to his value coming in for the season. He wasn't number one pick from Seth Greenberg. Some also some thoughts from Jay Bilas says there's a lotta outside of agendas placed on zion's injury. You can certainly ask he continued to play. But I think there've been so many issues that have been conflated and brought into this that have if you want to argue it agendas brought on top of it. You know, amateurism the way the works is I on the poster child for all the ills of. College basketball that stuff which I don't think belongs in this discussion. That's the other side of things, by the way. Mike, the the the drumbeat of people saying that Zion after this injury should just shut her down. And just get ready for the NBA quitting is easiest thing that you can do it just is. And from my standpoint, if you're if you're a competitor you wanna play and I think that on his resume for if I'm Zion. Williamson I'd want to be a national champion. I wanna stay around coach K as much as possible to go into the learning tree and understand what it takes to be the best basketball player. I could be on that level. And then get myself ready for the NBA we understand where the focus is. You know, I've watched enough college basketball where there's more talk about the Knicks and Zion more. So than Duke in Zion, which I think is his it's appalling to me because even though I know it's reality if I'm watching college sports, I just want to be immersed in what he brings to do. But that's just an. Another story point is though is that from Zion standpoint, the idea that that he should just shut it down. Because that's what people think he should play because he's a basketball player, and he wants to be the best. He can be in. I think quitting is too easy. For quitting is taking the shortcut at it things. And if and hopefully Zion is healthy before the season ends and his knee. Disney situation is anything severe. Yes. Get back out there get out there. Even if it requires him to miss more than just tonight's game at Syracuse. Once he's good to go get back out there. And because I think it's pretty safe to say that prior designs injury Duke was one of the favorites to win the national championship with the pieces. They have out there. And so go finish something go finish. What you started? And you know, you got to believe that Zairean has a mentality. You'll do the to you hear more about. John and the Nixon's ion and Duke. I recall Zion in they played a couple of weeks ago against Saint John's. And that's all people were asking about playing in the Knicks Bill so bad. I yes. I'm out. I'm watching that press conference where where is the where's the stop that man? Yes. If I if I'm coach K, I'm on that s idea where you you have to do a better job here. You gotta control this. I mean, they should have known that going in in the New York market play. You know that they're going to ask questions about if your sportscenter newspaper, you're covered. Saint John's you're gonna have Zayn on about facing. I mean, she'll be about possibly playing with the New York Knicks named season. But you gotta put a kebab shot, and you got to get get a young man prepared for what he's about to face from the media. So they can afflict that question. And don't have to answer it, and that becomes a distraction of everything. Yeah. I was appalled by that. When I saw those pro I mean, half the questions about him being with the New York Knicks. I'm thinking, well, he just he's playing a basketball game against Saint John's. College basketball. Don't come in here with your NBA thoughts in clouding muddying the waters with your NBA questions though. Young man still in college. So I had a hard time with that. And also, the broadcast was this Phil what this Knicks thoughts and all the bottom feeders in the NBA. And where he could go a tired of that too. When I'm watching college sports. I just want to be just focused on the game. The college game in front of me. I'm not worried about it. I I can I can talk about the NBA when I'm watching the NBA. But right now watching college basketball, let me enjoy it just I know it's reality. I just don't like it. You know? I mean, the kid is him RJ Barrett. Cam reddish, Ajay Mirant, I know all those guys eventually going to get into the NBA, but can I just enjoyment college for right now embraced the moment. In. I'm good now. You sound like me earlier in the show when Anthony Davis or James James harden, but we're not going to touch on that anymore. The worked up over there. Take a moment. Yes. Man. I mean, weird Martin Lawrence. When you need your Mike Lowry, man. I'm good now. That's coming up next with Mike well Jonathan hood Dickerson and hold on ESPN radio show.

"Shelby mast is gonna join us in about fifteen minutes. He's the bracket tala for USA today. We'll talk some college basketball with him including dukes win last night. And is Tennessee good? I mean, they're number one. But are they good good like national championship? Good. We'll talk to him about that. I like Rick Barnes a lot. I think Tennessee could win. The national championship. But you know, I don't know beating up on Vanderbilt who has won a game in eleven the last eleven games. Really, not not cooking. It some of the teams in the SEC terrible. Just terrible. But you know, teams bad teams in every in every league. So we'll talk to Shelby masked about that. Oh, so Michael Jordan, by the way, when asked which was harder to accomplish a streak of thirty straight thirty point games. Or the fact that Russell Westbrook has ten straight triple doubles. Jordan pondered that for a little bit and said, which is harder from the players standpoint. Six championships by all means anytime, Michael Jordan can remind you that he has six titles. He's going to do it. So Michael, Jordan. It's so great. So great. Thirty street thirty point games or ten street. Triple doubles six championships is it harder to build a treehouse or addition to your home, six championships, fix a carburetor or change a tire six championships. And he'll probably go to Tom Brady and go six and eight years. Exactly. Right. When did you? How did you get your six? Yeah. Seventeen by God's played seventeen. Holy cow. I'd have twelve fourteen. My God, man. How long did Michael Jordan play eighty four to two? Well, you do we Callie for awhile while but do we count the stint with the wizards? Now, we do not it didn't happen. So weird. I went to I went to a nuggets wizards game to see Michael Jordan playing when I was in Denver, and it was weird. Yeah. Just didn't feel right. Just felt weird. He played a little. He didn't wasn't wasn't spectacular by any means. But it was still you'll still. It's very Brett farve ish. Yeah. You know? May I know Brett farve. He played for the jets. He played for the Vikings. You might have played for another team. I I don't remember. You were a Packers guy. You can't you can't play for another team. You can't you can't play for the Vikings. Can't believe you're right. You can't do that. It's like Joe Montana winning playoff games with the chiefs. Doesn't count weird. Yeah. We don't count that. Just I don't know. It's like in in in this day and age of sports where players move around a lot. It's it's become so acceptable. But there is a point where you have a great player, and you don't wanna see him wearing the uniform because this is something about it. Like, we used to talk about this with Brady a lot, right? Like it Brady wanted to play the forty five we have to do it somewhere else would Bill Belichick go. Oh at forty two man. You don't have it anymore. And I'm going to go with my younger quarterback and would Brady go. Well, I don't want to give this up just yet. Because that's the one argument that I've always had with far with the farve detractors because I didn't like seeing farve retired and unretired, but at the same time there was a part of me that went well who a I have no business telling a guy when he should play. When he should not play. Not. That's not my business to he's dealing with something. I don't understand he is dealing something in his life that I don't have to deal with in my life. Whereas I whatever career you're in your trajectory is when you're in your twenties, you learn learn learn maybe you don't make a lot of money. And then maybe in your thirties you start making some money and you start climbing the corporate ladder. And then by the time, you're forty you might be an executive, maybe you're fifty you're really doing great. And you start thinking about retirement in sports. You're in your twenties. You make a ton of money. Everybody loves you. You're you're great at what you do. And then it declines clients fast. And then and then you're being told that like thirty five that everything that you've lived force into your Sixers has to come to an end. And I mean, that's hard. That's really really hard. So if you're in a position where you can extend that even just a little bit like, I don't progress. Anybody for doing oh, not at all conveniently for me as a fan for me. I used to it's hard to see. It's it's I don't like seeing it. I don't want to see it. I'd rather leave with the uniform. I kind of know you. Yeah. That's what the bizarre thing. I mean, I will always think of the Brown James Cleveland cavalier. Right. Exactly. Exactly. Like, even the Miami Heat years. It's like. Still work cavalier. But a lot of it is because he went back in one a title there. If he never went back to Cleveland, I probably think of him as a Miami, Heat, right? Exactly. We look at it that way with. Like Wilt Chamberlain. I don't remember remember the team he played on other than the Lakers. But I mean, he had some success obviously early in his career. I just really blanking on the TV for philadel- Philadelphia. Thank you. I mean, he had he did a lot of great things there. But he did start winning championships until he was with the Lakers. Yeah. I mean, look people in Boston don't really remember. Bobby your playing for the Blackhawks. I think Bobby ORR played season or half a season with the Blackhawks close out his career Johnny United's plagued with the chargers. Like, you know, sometimes these guys just grab they just grab a little bit of extra money and grab a little grab a paycheck and one little shot at glory and they play for somebody. They're trying to cheat father time. Yeah. Trying to cheat father time, but Jordan with the wizards was just a weird just it was a weird didn't exist. Yeah. So I don't know. I didn't like it. So you know, what else you know, what I liked? I I was I remember visiting a friend of mine in South Carolina in the early nineties, and he lived in the upper in the upstate and we were driving by I think they were called the Greenville Braves at the time the minor league team. And there was a big hullabaloo and Michael Jordan was in town playing for the Birmingham Barons. And I remember like the bus was there was a huge crowd. That's always we drove by the stadium. It's huge crowd. And we realized oh Michael Jordan's in town like we didn't go to the game or anything. But when he was when he was doing that minor league baseball thing if you watched that documentary yet he was he was starting to get better at it. Like people really liked. He I think he batted like two hundred but he was really starting to get better as the season progressed. He was really working hard at it. But one of the reasons that his baseball career came up short was because of the baseball strike that happened the in one thousand nine hundred ninety four. That he did not want to be a part of of anything that had to do with that like scrub players or anything like that. The baseball owners. We're talking about he didn't want anything to do with that. Because he was a union guy. Who's a union guy in the NBA is going to be a union guy in baseball. He was good. Even though he wasn't part. One is a minor league player. He did not feel comfortable going against a players union in any capacity is a baseball player. Well, that's a good cover Tony. But we all know is because the the the whole gambling. Allow him to come back. Right. Yeah. The investigation went through and David Stern said you can now come back. Exactly that we either that. Or was when all the players challenged him that he didn't have the stuff. Yeah. That's right. Right. When he said, oh, yeah. The league's better off. Right. The league's better without you. Oh, and he was like whatever I'll come right back and went three more titles after he won, you know, say the planet with Bugs Bunny. That's right. Save the planet with Bugs Bunny. God I wanted that conspiracy to be so true. Don't give up on it. I know, but I talked to Sam Smith about it a number of times. And I even I even said come on Sam realize he's part of the cover of the cover. That's true. I should I should I should know that the guy who wrote the Jordan rules, right?.

"All that for Anthony Davis. I think it's a good deal. I just don't know. I think what the Rangers being thrown in there. I think that probably has New Orleans back off. But we'll see how everything pans out. A lot of people feel that the Celtics still have the inside track to get Anthony Davis, and we'll see how that all pans out because New Orleans they're not stupid. They know that they've got to get something for him. Because when he goes free agent he's going to be gone anyway. So. Hopefully, they'll be able to get something for them. But we'll keep a tad. We'll keep track on the seventy Sixers Lakers game again, forty five twenty four now forty five to go in the second quarter only game still going in new sociation college basketball, Tennessee flex their muscles down the stretch of the second half was a four point game sixty six sixty two Tennessee. And then in the last whatever it is fourteen minutes, South Carolina, scored eight point ninety two to seventy Tennessee takes care of business. Rick Barnes and company. Again, I don't know if Tennessee is the best team in the country. I mean, they have all the pieces they're a physical team. They can knock down shots. You know, they have some depth. And they're well coached by Rick Barnes. But when I watched them play against Vanderbilt is the same Vanderbilt team that just got pummeled at home tonight by Kentucky. So I and again that's more of a rivalry game though with dandy in Tennessee inside the state. So again, you're going to have games that you're just not focused hundred percent or you don't play as well as you should. But it'll be interesting to see where this Tennessee team finishes again Kentucky really coming on in the SEC. And then you've got you know, Auburn going the other way you've got Mississippi State playing pretty good ball in Alabama a team night, you'd better you'd better reckon with Alabama. I mean, not just on the gridiron. But every Johnson has at team playing pretty good ball, seventy to sixty Arkansas spotted Georgia and eleven to lead out of the gate, but Arkansas comes back and wins it by ten so they get the win and a cover their game goes game stays way under the total Andy isco, and he's probably already tax me because I'd probably blew that on the NBA, but stays under the total seventy to sixty Arkansas gets the win. Total was one fifty one and a half got. Up to one fifty five and finishes at just one thirty. But Arkansas, take it. They got the money today as well. As it went from six and a half up to eight at William Hill, Kent state and western Michigan. Game was postponed. That could be a weather thing. Remember, all that cold weather? They're having back. There could have been some travel problems did not check in on that Toledo laying three and a half that down to two and a half and it finishes at three. Wow. So I mean a game you could have meddled right there. Rockets win it out Miami of Ohio sixty six sixty three game goes game stays way under the total one forty four and a half that down to one forty two game only hits one twenty nine sixty six sixty three rockets win it at Miami of Ohio central Michigan their game sales over hitting one sixty eight they get eighty six eighty two win against eastern Michigan. They're laying two and a half. So they cover it with a four point win. They suffered their the chips at home buffalo. No problem with ball state is ball's team is exciting oats has a solid squad. Now, they did lose one game at northern Illinois. He's playing pretty good ball and got him in DeKalb last week. But you know, buffalo like Nevada in the mountain west head and shoulders. Above the above the league. And right now UNLV they're in trouble troubles. They're down eight points. Eighteen to ten it was eighteen to eight fourteen a one to go in the first half keeping an eye on there actually wasn't paying attention because I didn't want to be distracted. But again, if the rebels I could see right now, they have five two point buckets or maybe fellow free throws in there. But I don't see any odd numbers, which means they have no three pointers, and if they're not gonna get any three pointers against Nevada. They're not gonna hang in this game. It's just the way it is. You gotta you gotta hit your triples on your home court. Let me pick up the scoreboard now North Carolina. No problem at Georgia Tech, seventy seven fifty four blow out for the baby. Blue got bit up from eight and a half to eleven. So the money went the right way. Game stays under the total of one forty six. Never moved finishes at one thirty one in overtime Virginia sixty six sixty five ekit out in Raleigh out about a seven to ten point lead throughout the first half and good portion of the second half. And then NC state caught fire down the stretch last six minutes and got the game into OT even with the extra session game stays under the total of one thirty eight finishing at one thirty one sixty six sixty five or genius tied Jerome playing good ball leading the way seventy to fifty two no problem for Turgeon in Maryland. The turps blown out northwestern and other game stand under the total of one thirty four closed at one thirty two only. It's one twenty two seventy two fifty two Texas. Nice clothes as they're able to knock off Kansas pretty much led this one wire to wire jayhawks got within four with a minute to go couldn't close the door. Texas gets the. The last six point seven three sixty three longhorns at home, minus one they got the money game stays under the total hitting just one thirty six. Total was one forty one. Never moved Dayton seventy five sixty four. They take care of business over Saint Joe's laying eleven but that down to nine so either push your win with Dayton total one forty four bit up from one forty and.

And and Kenny would turn that switch down and he'd pull water in the fan, and he scares the hell out because it would move faster than it was supposed to and he was quite a guy. I am really glad I survived that elevator. Not sure everyone else. Did I'll take a break a couple of minutes ago as we get you ready for basketball here. We're coming right back to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back to the program at you are here, and we'll take some more phone calls today. Five five four two seven two eight five clay is in Knoxville hillock Klay good afternoon to you. Are you doing we're doing great? Thank you. You know, I just I just got a question for you. Obviously, I go to UT campuses buzzing number one team in the country. I just want to know your thoughts. Do you think? Jeremy Pruitt can do what Rick Barnes is done with the basketball team to the football team. Yes. I do. It's hard for me to buy in right now, Paul. Well, no, I understand that. And you know, they're two completely different sports now. Yeah. I think he can make Tennessee very competitive program. I think he is a good enough coach. The question remains can he get the players in there that can compete with Georgia, Alabama and the usual suspects. That's to be determined. But but I think he is very capable. And I like some of the chess moves that he's made this year on his coaching staff. I think he needed to enhance that. And I believe he has. Well, I hope he can get it done. Like, I said, we're we're trying to focus on basketball here. But we'll see what happens great to hear from you. Thank you very much. Stacy is in Tennessee. You're on the air pay Stacy. Hey, Paul, thanks for taking my call. I've been waiting for a while. And there's been so much going on. I just wanna say Jerome, you know, take your seventeen national championship and live with it. Don't have a heart attack over this loss. But anyway, you know, we were talking about earlier about the in the SEC you got your east and west permanent. Arrival. Here's one thing. I brought up in a local radio station. I live right outside Knoxville. And I said look if they rotated the two east and west teams. Don't they realize that if you come in as a freshman, and by the time, you leave a senior you will play every SCC school. There is right now, they got it. Where like we just play Georgia. We will play them again for seven more years. Let's we meet necessarily championship. Right. That's crazy. That's why it is. And I think that's the big argument against it. And I've heard coaches was there there aren't I mean, they're savings Ford. And there may be one other coach who has come out in indicate I brought this up about three years ago and make thought they thought I was stupid for saying that, but you know, Peyton Manning, you know, he's a God here in big orange. Right. But he never got the play LSU and then ninety six and ninety seven Jared Darnell had a fairly good team. But Payton men and never go. There. You're talking about. Player from Louisiana from New Orleans who would have really liked to do that. Yeah. Exactly. And now like I said for me to go to Tennessee LSU game, which I won't because the fans are too rude. But we played them a year and a half ago or not last year. But here before they don't play again in Knoxville for fourteen years, doggone I'm I'm fifty eight years old. I'll be I'll be nearly seven, you know. So they need to change that. And you know, so maybe you can purse that on because I think I have raised of the SEC raise the issue to the commissioning raise the issue to athletic directors. And I understand what they're concerned about..

They're doing whatever they want him to do a better job. When you look at your game is even you came over here and picked up the score sheet and use it how many rebounds to that.

"The quote was no disrespect to the Syracuse guys. But I think we do have better players. So what he's trying to do there. I think is something that crispier would try to do often last season. Because when you or Rick Barnes, we'll try to do this season when Tennessee has zero top one hundred high school prospects on its roster, but his ranked third in the country or crispier d- inherits a roster that. It has a roster where he starting to sub one hundred freshmen and yet like has a tremendous team last season. And now NATO tes with with. People start looking at you beating Bob Huggins, and Shawn Miller, and and Giambi Heim, and they go man, this guy is really coaching coaching like crazy like to take a a buffalo roster and beat these giants of the sport. And so when he tried to do so, hey, listen, Saint about me it's about my players but plays a good. But when you take it to no disrespect Syracuse guys. But I think we do have better players than them. It really just comes off as shot at therapies players, doesn't it. It does. And it was not an explicit Penny Hardaway moment, and by no means, but you're just trying you're trying to stump for your guys. And it's actually the kind of it's the kind of quote or the style of quote that you'll get in March when you have a mid major that is able to pull off an upset and that on that first Thursday or Friday and potentially health they get to a second weekend. And obviously buffalo one big over AirAsia last season. And no one would said that buffalo had the better players versus Zona and in many ways like collectively. Syracuse says the better roster than buffalo. But this is a really really good team of Buffalo's got some players CJ Massenburg is a baller unafraid. Got a great story really good shooter. And he hit some huge buckets to seal that game last night. But this is obviously sticking up for his team has guys he got and and I don't fault them for it. But yeah, sometimes when you're trying to make that case you unintentionally, perhaps even just throw the other coacher his his players under the bus, and you got a little bit of that there. I don't know this to be a fact, but I'm sure oats could have potentially reset to behind independently privately after and said, hey, man, like, you got what I was trying to say here, and I'm sure behind accepted it for what it was. But love this team. And just love the fact that we I love that college basketball gives us this kind of stuff it's not quite every year..

"Because when you contrast what FedEx form looked like last year when less than three thousand people were in that building often, maybe shouldn't say often, but multiple times to watch the university of Memphis men's basketball program. They drew the only like they drew fewer than six thousand people per game on average. And so to contrast that with eighteen thousand four hundred complete sellout. The scene was unbelievable tweeted. Right before tip off. The game. Didn't get the national hype that the number one versus number two game got back in two thousand eight for obvious reasons. Like, Memphis, thin was ranked number one undefeated in February and had a future number one pick in the NBA draft. Eric rose this Memphis team entered the game five and four unranked like. It wasn't supposed to be competitive. It mostly wasn't competitive. But if you just walked into the building it looked exactly like the two thousand eight game and it sounded exactly like the two thousand eight game. And so people were asking Rick Barnes about that. Just TV people looking for a soundbite. And Rick was like, I would say it's top three environment. We've been in this year. It's absurd. Like, he was like, you know, we were in Phoenix last week. And I was like neutral court game. I watched that game. It wasn't a capacity crowd. It was a great game. But the atmosphere so neutral game zone between Gonzaga Tennessee and by. Yeah. And I was on hand at Barclays, which actually was a better when they played Kansas Tennessee, and that was a better environment that I thought it would be it was actually pretty solid for a Friday night in November for college basketball game. But come on, right. So Rick Rick says that and then he was asked about the crowd again. And he said, yeah, you know, I watched other games on film. And I know they haven't been drawing like this. But it was a new this was a big game for them. So I wasn't surprised to see the crowd like just little subtle things. Like big game for them not big game to game for them. Just to gain a big game for them that little subtle things that I think bothered penny a little bit too. But yeah, I think he probably took it too far in that Tuesday afternoon press conference. He said some things at the very least that you would you wouldn't hear another coach say, and I will say that the one place where is still obvious over and over again. And I mean, there's an positive way that penny. Hardaway has is a first year college coach has never worked in a college campus before this calendar year, the place where it's most obvious is obviously not on the recruiting trail. It's odd to me. It's not on the sideline. I think he looks completely comfortable coaching basketball team. It's it's in its with the media because he doesn't participate in coach speak at all..

"And it is I'm all for rivalries, I'm all for real disdain, if not downright hate and college athletics, I think it is good. I think it makes it that much more interesting. And it's okay. If we get scenarios in which programs coaches players would ever genuinely don't like each other at a certain level of drama. I don't know. I wanna ask you something parish though. I don't know if this got brought up yet in your in your home city of Memphis, or maybe this is the next step. But when I saw this, and I saw people were like reacting to it and such like, all right? Let's let's have this. This rivalry is on. Yeah. That's great. But I tell you what this is this is a great rivalry. And I hope that stuff like this doesn't lead to another dormant period. Like, I hope that Penny Hardaway, and I wonder if basically if you think it will if Penny Hardaway saying here is going to cause Tennessee and Memphis. They've got a three year deal right now they played this season. They'll play next season in Knoxville and they've got a neutral site game in twenty twenty. But there's nothing beyond that. And at this is going to be what this is. It would really suck if something like this wound up leading to a halt of Tennessee and Memphis keeping their series going because it's not like they've continuously played each other. They've got. Twenty six meetings total ever which is which is obviously relatively relatively little considering how close they are. And how good the programs have been historically. So I'm all for this. But I just wonder if what Hardaway said might actually have a real strong unintended consequence because it would suck if the series ended. It could obviously when people don't like each other. And it seems pretty clear at this point that Rick Barnes and penny. Hardaway do not like each other. Like, maybe don't even respect each other for different reasons. They say, you know, what we're not gonna I'm not doing to deal with you play the game. But I think what would Trump that the disdain between the two coaches is that penny wants to play the game because he values the regional rivalries in a way that John Calipari just didn't John Kerry's thing was always of Tennessee wants to play some basketball. They need to play us in football. Or we just won't do it. Or John would say if all missing Tennessee and Arkansas wanna play us in basketball. They should invite us to the we'd be happy to join will join the SEC tomorrow, we'll play all of them. But unless they want to do that we won't play any of we're not gonna let them come in our city. I never agreed with that perspective and neither does penny. Hardaway because ultimately, you know, Memphis, right in the heart of the SEC and the Memphis fans, even the ones who try to pretend they don't the they find a certain level of joy in beating ole miss beating Tennessee beating Arkansas because the schools looked down on Memphis, historically. I mean, Memphis. Nickname the university of Memphis nickname among SEC fans is tiger high. That's what they call it. Oh, so you went to tiger high. They sort of like looked down on the university of Memphis. So when you're in the heart of the SEC, the other fan base is look at you that way, and then you probably live next door to ole miss alum work with an Arkansas Lomb, data, Tennessee Allom, those are just fun games to have and penny recognizes that as somebody who grew up here as a former player, and now as the coach he he seems to have the same point of view on Memphis playing regional rivals as I do play as many as you can they're fun games for the fan base. So penny wants to play the game. And then every Tennessee coaching history is wanted to play the game because it's an opportunity to get into Memphis, which is the best recruiting area in the state one of the best in the country. But certainly the best in the state by a significant margin. So I think if you can put your differences aside, and even if you can't put your differences aside. Like penny thinks it's good for Memphis to play the game. And every coached Tennessee has always thought that it's good for Tennessee to play Memphis of basketball because it gives you an opportunity to get into the city of Memphis. I think ultimately we'll see them continue to play..

Where's he going to sign? We don't know he's been rumored pinstripes with the White Sox. With the Phillies with the cubs with the Yankees. The Yankees are the Rockies involved the Rockies. I don't know. We got pinstripes brewers stripe. So where the hell is Bryce Harper going to go. I think with her like that you gotta look at L A. I think he's thinking about becoming Calabro going to L A, maybe SD. It's there the Bryce Harper signing is going to be very weird because it's either going to be the mystery team. But it's not really a mystery. You're the Yankees cubs. Like, oh, yeah. You know, what will pay us money or one like the White Sox were just like, you know, what blank check. Let's do it and everybody what we thought he's gonna Yankees this whole time. This is kinda disappointing. I mean, I I wouldn't rule out the white socks just because he's Broza Kris Bryant.

Rick Barnes is running his mouth about the Memphis players saying that there were flopping and stuff like that. And then penny said, I just call it.

Then he stands up to walk out of the room. And goes Rick Barnes, get the fuck outta here. Yes..
