"Performance with. Can we talk a little bit about that ten day though there with the sixers. To be on that team. GimMe, your favorite memory of of ending up on the team that goes up against the Lakers won game one. So everybody I remember being like wait no way that Laker squad was just ridiculous and we're going is this sixers team that's essentially built with like four guys watching Iverson GonNa take down this Lakers team was fantastic and I just remember. So my favorite part of that year was the interaction between Larry Brown and Alan Iverson like I just. It was. It was. Mind you. I've never really been the only organization that I had ever really been in for an extended period of time was the spurs and that was just through a whole preseason. So nobody in the Spurs camp like there's a culture there you know ones bigger than the team everyone kind of Bison. He treats Tim Duncan David, Robinson, Gregg Popovich that is the same way he treat me who got cut. Well know in about by. Allen's close enough goes into right Allen's Relationship with Larry, Brown was just a fascinating to me man I just love I've read I've read enough books to know that like, Hey, I just showed up whenever he wanted I think there's a Detroit game is after you're gone, he showed up less than an hour before the tip and I can understand that Larry isn't always the easiest guy to get along but it appeared that Iverson was not real locked into whatever the pregame routine was. Allen. Allen was. A just a gifted being made like. I I've said this before like. He would sing in like jest like messing around and you know you be like damn dude like if you really wanted to sing, you might be able to sing like you know he could. He could dance he could play basketball I don't think he practiced any of it. It was just I can do all of these things I'm really good I'm a I'm good stuff. But but he he can't live. There was a flight. I think we'RE GOING TO TORONTO WE HAVE A regular season game or is this is This is this is the second round. I believe he is I'm looking at your game log.

We're hanging out waiting Cambay and Allen's not there. It's twenty minutes and Larry Brown was like we're leaving and we're like, okay. So he goes back to the back of the plane right? So now it's forty minutes. Larry. broncos. Back, his Abe I talked to Alan. NOPE, we can't get him. We're leaving. So he goes and he sits back down in back. It's like an hour. Now he comes back has anybody talked out. So we've left three times, but we ain't budged. So finally Allen.

Crazy Matrix on people and just get thirty five game finals, MVP. I championship in Miami History Shack was shocked me. He wasn't like the dominant he was. He was dead. He put a little work in, but. I. Think it would just one of the better finals performances. Live. Maybe aside from Jordan and ninety three Phoenix when he got forty forty one game so big props to way for doing it, and I got. I got Miami Dallas and number two so. Your number one final of the two thousands. Belongs to's the Lakers. La In Philadelphia is your number one finals of the two thousands. Tell me what. I like the rocky. Or more so the David and Goliath story of of Alan Iverson. He's overcome to get to the point that. When I think I had a greater appreciation for while I went to college in Philadelphia Area worked downtown at so how much he exemplified. Everyday Working Philadelphia people on. I'll say you know. There's New York. There's San Francisco. And then there's cities like Chicago. This cities like Philadelphia to cities like Cleveland. where? There's a level of just. Doesn't carry over that new. Really embody the. The infrastructure that the of that particular city and I think that philly still. Alice Avid Central Tonight Day for that reason. I think it was cultural involved I mean the unlikeliness unlikeliness of beating. You know teams. On paper were better than you. And you found a way to get it done on me. I'll go back to about. Feel ratliff like the atlas was supposed to be the guy that was supposed to go toe to toe with shack. I, don't know who that would have happened, but. Tumble defensively. Get his job at times. Time McCullough seldom. In minutes but. You know you had a roster with Gosling Eric. Snow Rodney Buford. Squad bell. That that Erin McKee that we're going up against the Lakers team that was on April much better than them, and of course you talk about the stepping overtime bill. You can't get that, but. It just was a series. That I look forward to coming home and watching, and then I think also just coming into my own. My you know I me personally address. Would Saddam ask prep high school and you know? Had you know was an editor? Columnist and Muscle newspaper at being in another school was a columnist. An old column as a freshman. Writing about the sixers, going into the going into the playoffs I knew there was something special about them, and I just admired them from afar. Alan Iverson? During his second year in the League. Guys like come and go like Judy. Jackson and Key you stored in. Just ten day contract guys guys. and. Larry Hughes. Every sack cash like so distant. Coastal DB in lockable. Back.

"So he had unlimited. So that when you had unlimited. I didn't know there could be more than unlimited but vary limited is actually the next round In the second round of this draft first of all Jemaine Jemaine Jones became the Rashard Lewis Award winner. We shouldn't have invited into the Green Room Guy. He its hands of going into the second round and they kept cutting into him and it was sad. Von T go cummings member. Him was from six pair. He went to an Ernie said on. Ironically that he got his first name after a neighbor combined the names of two cars the Volkswagen and the Montego in that it just kind of hung in the air for a second. Everybody died. But that's how about cummings got his name and then I in the second round. Ernie Johnson said Todd McCullough number forty seven in this draft who ended up turning into something that he enjoyed bungee jumping parachuting parasailing in clip diving and had a dog named chainsaw who got his tongue stuck to a frozen pole and maderas asked. Is there developing Hook shot story in their community? Aside away all those activities you just mentioned. He's a giant man. I know he's taking all of that. Yeah well he became A world class pinball player after our friend Zach cramped from the ringer came up with some Zack's for the ninety nine draft. Nine players from this draft made an all star team tied for the third most in the latter air that makes sense the average player from this draft tallied twenty eight point five win shares third most of any era behind ninety six and three men new selected fifty seventh most regular season win shares of anyone ever picked in the fifties in the entire thirty one to sixty range. He's second behind Jeff. Hornicek for wind shares in the top undrafted player from nineteen. Ninety nine was Raja Bell Agai near there to Christmas Art. When you're early guys Chris. That's right all right so we gotta talk about the main thing. Really quick manner goes fifty. Seven is the second to last pick in the draft. The Spurs just swoop in here the guys before him from forty eight to fifty six Gaylon. Young Larry Kettner Vincent Hamilton. Antoine Smith Roberto Bergersen Rodney Buford. Melvin Levick Kris. Clack AND STANFORD'S TIM. Young who somehow played one season diesel. Sound like characters and Omega Man. Movie the Spurs basically augment the Tim Duncan era because people fall asleep on the main new thing. They barely get a then. Tony Parker the next year the Celtics could attain or two years later. Celtics Take Joe Forte over him. Needle out of luck with this draft fellows. I have a question about Manu so obviously one of the more enjoyable players of my lifetime as it is just the absolute magician on the court. I WanNa talk about what man who could have been on any other team in any other situation because you know I think that man who had permission on the Spurs to kind of go in and out here I mean like I do remember. There were times when people thought man who was cooked or manny wasn't contributing tonner man. Who is this or meeting was that? And when you're looking at this redraft and you're trying to decide whether or not man who obviously maximized his potential versus some guys who obviously didn't do enough with potential. They had. What do you think manager? Nobly is on the Pacers. I actually think career is very similar to. I think he travels really team the team. He he also pretty accomplished overseas. Yes literally invented eurostepped travel. I'm with you though. I think it would have been fun to see what he would have done on a team where he could have been. You know the real lead option or the lead offensive option or the offense renter him but I always thought the fact that they weren't playing him huge minutes made me made be think or wonder if they felt like he just couldn't have done thirty eight minutes a game you know but there's a reason they were so careful about not playing him too much and I don't really know what that is. House a Middle List all the Maryland guys drafted in this draft. Okay Steve Francis to we're not done Obinna Qazi. I remember Big Benny. He was the thirty seventh. Pick to Vancouver right after Laurent Prophet thirty eighth another guy. I still have so much. Laurent Prophet stock. It's just never going to get off of it. What he played four years in the league. Hundred Thirty Five Games. Some other ranchos in this draft. Kenny Thomas who ended up getting overpaid couple times by their philly or Sacramento or ends up on Philly at some point. Somebody gave him a bad contract. So that APP James Posey is in this draft to you know ended up being a key member though eight. Celtics Andre Korolenko Twenty-fourth. That was fun. We haven't said Hamilton yet. Well Yeah we talk. We've mentioned briefly at the top Michael. Ruffin Calvin booths two houses wizards yeah. He was a salary player. I five and a half minutes. Chris did you ever buy any Gordon gear sex stock or no. I think I was all. I had my financial advisor. Go all in on Evan schmear funds. So I didn't have a lot of liquidity to play around with Garish Schneier. That was right when people really started to realize. Don't take these goofy weds centers that this is not a good way to spend a top fifty. I mean notwithstanding with the Knicks. Did okay right so nine. All Star seven guys with seventy five plus wind shares fourteen players with over twenty thousand career minutes and then I think the other legacy that strap just a unique collection guys were you have you know Baron Davis who was a really unique point guard. This really physical athletic like Steve. Nash told me at the end of the two thousands. The single hardest person for him to play was bear Davis. He had a nice run. He made a lot of money. was had a couple of playoff teams. Had A really fun run Golden State? You Have Repay Milton. Who is basically just running a track meet every game and and flying around and there was really. Nobody liked him other than he was in that round kind of filing but not a lot of dudes who play that Kirilenko. The other guy like six nine defensive demon Ed who I thought was really valuable. There are thousands mentioned the Matrix Shawn Marion Run Our test definitely unique. Andre Miller the professor the Old School Nineteen fifties point guard. Gabe and then Ginobili so those are eight guys that were really in a weird way kind. Elect either one on ones or almost one once right. I agree with all of this. Like you know the the Combo Guard nature of Baron Davis that physical play that that he he brought felt you know I. I don't know who you compare them to you. Know from previous era and Ginobili is definitely a one of one and that's GonNa feel it. It feels like it's GonNa stay that way like he'll always be kind of a one on one. I don't know if he's a unicorn but you know and then the Combo players like the potential of automatic Combo guy like you know he he. He's another five to Guy Onuma sophisticated. Tim Thomas both of whom ended up with frustrating careers but both of them could play five positions. So yeah I I agree with this. So and my five star rating for draft. We didn't have a super. We didn't have it all timer. We didn't have a franchise guy But we had multiple all stars in multiple quality starts to by my count. Five all stars six if you wanted to give Baron Davis and then Six One star Guys Push Jason Terry and Korey Magadan. They did the first thirteen in this draft. Our a really good and I think it's time to redraft them. My my Simmons Crapshoot Ready for this scrap rating is only two point five. 'cause IT mostly goes by the book except for Right Nobly For the top pick. We're doing rock paper scissors. We can all see each other at ready one two three go. I can't see your hands. Iraq Simmons goes respect right. Now you guys go second ready one two three one two three okay Chris Riots. Second All right. I'm I buy picks surprise you so on the first pick of the draft which would have been the Chicago Bulls taking Shawn Marion tonight. It's not a surprise. I agree with you okay. Future Hall of Famer. I hope he gets there before Antoine. Jamison I was really excited for him in the draft. We didn't have a lot of experience with that. Unlv team on TV. But this was right this ninety nine dollars the first year where we start. Internet's rounding into shape a little bit better and there's just a lot more. Nba draft content and. Marion was one of the guys who became the big winner. This draft. Where it's like you know who's going to be really good as Shawn Marion guy from UNLV. He's you know incredibly athletic. And I I remember just being so sad that the Celtics had fucking traded their pick. 'cause Rick Pitino dip shit. He ends up playing fourteen. Jesus he plays through two thousand fifteen so sixteen seasons he is on some critically acclaimed Phoenix Suns stance and is in all MBA top. Tanguy there for at least a couple years goes to Miami. Seems like his career? Starting to Peter out ends up in Toronto and then has this research is Dallas in house really laid it on Lebron and the two thousand eleven final Senate. That's the exclamation point. The Oh gee you know. The the PRI-. The defense of pride a real throwback kind of a you know a example I would say and he was crucial to that to that two thousand seventeen at at that late late stage of his career. So his If you go his two thousand five through seven suns run where he's basically let's say he is for three straight years twenty points a game rebounds a game two steals one point six blocks fifty percent shooting. He's putting up threes just because that team shot threes but thirty three percent but the. He's one of those guys that I really think would have been a huge winner. If he shows up right. If two thousand five Shawn Marion shows up right down two thousand twenty you you could potentially play him as a five which Phoenix kind of had to do because they didn't have a choice in. Oh Sakes when Amara went down But you could go super small ball with him as like your dream on basically and I think he could have pulled it up but at the very least he just would have been with the faster pace and more possessions and the speed of the game that we play now things like that. I'm sure his three point shot probably would have improved but Do you agree that he was born too soon? Chris absolutely I mean I think there's shades of pippen and his game but I think that yeah absolutely it was. It was a matter of when he came into the League has give me one sentence on how we remember Shawn. Marion crazy motor highly versatile super energizer.
