"Kind of sounds like there's no plan for it. Just spitballing here. Just showing what it looks like from the outside. So I just wanted to mention that to everybody, start hour number two. Now then. Let's get to the NBA playoffs. Dude, I don't know, man. It is a wild affair. With watching the injuries, your guy embiid, good thing, the sixers are sitting there, sitting out. Okay, and you know, I'm sure you're rooting for the hawks to try and extend that series with the Celtics. So you can get as much rest for MB. He's 50 50 that he's going to be there, or he'll be 50%. I can't tell the percentages and stuff like that. I'm not a doctor. There you go. 50% for game one. Giannis out. He's basically played a half a quarter. Bucks are down two games to warn now. Heats up. Bucks down. Okay? He got Kawhi Leonard. Kawhi Leonard. I'm sorry. Load managed all year long so it can be ready for this moment. He played a whole damn game against the Portland Trail Blazers the day I brought my son there for a game that we thought maybe they should lose because you want to avoid the suns and then they beat the suns in game one and koala great. You played game two and then all of a sudden he can't play two games in a row. Home games, no Kauai, no Paul George, best thing if the clippers, the clippers are up two games to none in moral victories. They're down three games to one now in actual Stanley. Correct. Then you got suspensions, draymond came back from suspension. He's on the bench, he suspended. For stomping on, sabonis. And then Dylan Brooks gets ejected. Because he hit King James in The Crown jewels, but he's not suspended. James Harden gets his gets ejected. That was ridiculous. Who knows what? Nothing. But they said he hit it. I guess the jewels are an ejection able offense. Don't hit anybody in the jewels. Dejante Murray bumps an official. Steps over and bead? It's off the charts. Doc Rivers, he spoke the truth on Friday night. There's a lot of toughness going on in the NBA that wouldn't be going on if this was what Rucker park basically what I'm kind of what he's putting down here is with Doc had to say. And then I'm going to say this, promise it. Didn't think draymond should have got suspended. And I think the league is setting up a very dangerous precedent right now. And this is not me campaigning, all right? And I'm dead serious. If we're going to start punishing the retaliators and that's instigators, then we got a problem. If I was at a park and you stood over me, we gonna have a problem. You know, but these guys know they can do it because they know most likely you can't do anything. I mean, you know, picking on clocks in, but I don't think at a park, you send it over to oil. But when you got the ref and everybody else there, you know nothing's gonna happen. To me, you know what I'm saying is this and this is what I'm concerned by is teams targeting the better players with instigation to get them thrown out and the better player has to be above and can't retaliate. And so we're asking our stars to turn their heads a whole bunch more than they can at times. So it's a tough one for the league. I think they're in a tough spot. What do you say? That's not true. Honestly. Don't punch down. It's basically what they're saying. That the league. I don't know. But it's been an off kilter first round. Good thing Yanis is expected to come back tonight. I'm excited to see that. But all season long we're talking about stars not playing and now it's the playoffs and stars on our planet. In many different ways. Let me talk about something that's positive though. As you all know, I don't like the Knicks owner with the intensity of a thousand suns. And I use celestial astronomical language. Because my dislike of James Dolan, we call it the Dolan wormhole. I can't stay away from the gravitational pull, it would just send me in a totally different direction. And we found out from Neil deGrasse Tyson. It's really a black hole. Scientifically, I've been off. But spiritually, I think I've been spot on. Spiritually. And I thought I would never want to reverse course. Again, Charles Oakley spending a night in jail because of him being dragged out of the garden because Dolan didn't see fit to stop what was happening in front of him. Or target Charles Oakley for appearing in the garden at all. To me, it's just the height. And it's tough for me to forget because this is one of my favorite mix of all time, and I've been a fan since 1977. And then I would just watch the Knicks basically try and buy their way out of their problems. By try and get all star players interested in coming to New York. Remember that one time they didn't they put the rant on a season ticket, flyer or

"Did not trade for Donald Mitchell. Then we got it out here. I don't care. But no. No. I think after, I think after you, you allow yourself to get fees for so long. Some tables eventually got to turn. Shake the tree. It's not as bad as the Brooklyn Nets because how the hell with all that talent you still plays like a fiddle to the Knicks. No, don't make any sense. Yeah, I was running New York, Brooklyn, what I should have. They didn't make any sense. Exactly. Man. Do you realize that I feel like I'm chopping here, but do you realize that the next 5, I think 5? Years. The thunder? The Knicks. And I think the jazz have like 18 first round picks. Oh, yeah. Oh, I know. Crazy that is? That's insane. 18 first round picks? So that's per team or 13. She's us. Wow. So that's 6 first round picks per year. Just about like four to 6 fresh on top of the next 5, 6 years. Remember, the Utah traded voodoo bear? To Memphis, they did this traded dominant. Mitchell did the kill Evelyn? Good for them. He needed fleece ten picks. Out of two people. With players. In a Knicks benefit from it. 'cause they kept theirs, and then when they traded their pigs over to the thunder and got picked back. Yep. Sometimes you gotta look to your left. You gotta look here, right? A Barney's not there. Exactly. Anyways. All right, so back to my story. So the years 2003, right? Yep. 5, 7. I was 52 55, but this actually is 2003. It is Rucker park, Harlem USA. Oh, I don't know this game. The game that could have been that didn't happen all failed because of the power outage. It was one of the, I think it was the power outage that happened in O three, where the whole east coast got shut down. Yep. Right? So, is this doing summertime? Yeah. So the game that was supposed to happen was between team Jay-Z was a teen fat Joe. Now while there were battling on the billboard charts, they had a friendly beef with The Crown for the king of New York. Also sneaker beef as well. It was friendly. Yeah. This is friendly. There was no bloodshed. He was ready to sell. From these hills. ABC tournament right? You know? Yeah, ABC's always say that because we know we know how beef goes for some places. Yeah. It was very friendly between the two of them. So Jay-Z had the car sneakers collection with Reebok while fought Jill had the air force one's terror squad edition. That was dope. Joe, I didn't know was even going to launch with the Jordan brand being the first hip hop act, but the deal was nixed because of his beak with 50 cents. After meeting with MJ, several times. Damn it Chris. Because, you know, we heard on Vlad TV that that beef was real. The TG unit and Terrence squad in 50 in fat Joe. When you had Yale, you'll see big up the fat Joe man, a lot of respect between that dude. That's real. At the time, it wasn't, you know, they thought they could push him over. But on bronze deals was different. Exactly. We don't get pushed over. Listen, don't let the fat guy fool you. Okay? That white van was real. Oh yeah. Okay? Oh yeah. He was like, yo, Vlad, but I could have gone, man. She could have been a director. A lot of guys get emotional for this song. It's okay? And what does it get played on the radio? We'll fill the top away. Eva being the California self well, hey man, you got probably could talk to me. The light? I like the light. The library. He was like, April, listen, man. Listen to me. I save you from a lot of white men. He said you acknowledge the white man. Say yes, yes, I've heard. All right? Also on the billboard charts. Jay-Z from the time was fresh with the blueprint series. And that year in the charity had fronting, crazy in love and excuse me, miss. Excuse me. Fat Joe with the terror scrap was coming in with jealous ones still envy and loyalty. Billboard treading with we thuggin, what's love and crush the night? You know what I'm saying? So the two one of the smoke or the basketball game. Jay-Z was even pulling up with a quarter $1 million, which equals a $250,000 for those that don't know. On the game, right? Yeah. Then before tip off at 8 p.m., will people winning in lines from 10 a.m.? To hear about the game between team Jay-Z and team fat Joe was shut shut down bro you can get in there. The power went out. It was the biggest one that New York City ever had. Jay-Z even attempted to have the game still played while people pulling their car lights up onto the courts and the bus tour lights on to shine on the court. Police said no. So that they weren't having it because of violations, et cetera, et cetera, and you can't just have, you know, car lights to let up a court. It's not going to happen. Right? Yeah. So, I want to give you guys some lineup. Go ahead. I know Kobe was part of that lineup as well. No he wasn't that way. No, he wasn't that one. I think he was at the one the year before. The year before the year after Kobe came down. But remember, he just came out for a game. He didn't come that part of a team. Because that's what I'm going to give to you. That's when they want to keep straight. I'm going to give you the lineup probably like you jump into. You do okay. I know one of them. Yeah, yeah. Gosh, can I see the story? On team fat Joe. Theme song right now, NBA. NBC, man. That's right. On team fat Joe, you want to get to see some yeah, Stefan marbury. John touch is cool. I don't know what that is. So you have Stefan barber here. Allen and Iverson, Carmelo Anthony, Jermaine O'Neal, and Yao Ming. Good God. That's on team fat Joe. On team Jay-Z, Sebastian taffer, Jamal Crawford, Lamar Odom, a young LeBron James, and who he bussed in fluent Shaquille O'Neal. Wow. I don't know, I think either way. Dude. On team Carter. I know that I can. That game will go really. It could really go because Melo was. This is when mello come up to him. But LeBron was still being Captain America. Yep. But it's different when he's dealing with a San Francisco with a fade away, bro yeah. It's a different thing. It's more than just dunking the ball. It's more than just dunking the ball, but when I did the simulation in my head, I had team car to win them by ten. But I had team fat Joe leading most of the game. Yeah. Because you have Allen Iverson, who was against crossover king. They were crushed to the up. But a I would have outscored some more questions. You got stuff on my baby, being at his apex September, coming fresh up from the New York City kid, holding it down. That Lamar Odom jamin on Neil matchup intrigues me because you have Odom who was basically a stretch for. But

"rucker park" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Sweat drive that leads to the top prize. Think about some of the greek plays playoff history. Man i mean i was there for bird steals the bog the pistons nineteen eighty seven. I was there for rail famous. Shot against the spurs game. Six two thousand thirteen. I've been there for a lot of good stuff. A bird dominique dual but pretty lucky. Here's thing you can't always anticipate the outcomes in the playoffs but was state farm. You can anticipate personalized service of a local agent at a surprisingly great rate like a good neighbor state farm. Is there all right. We're taping this. It is three o'clock pacific time. So it's before clip sons but we are going to be able to cover everything else. Jackie macmullan here. She did a trae young story a few months ago this before i did buy. I didn't tell one. Eighty on trae young. But i just didn't see dead. Why why. I just didn't see it. I didn't see it. I didn't see the late but you were you. We argued i think on this podcast about it. And you're really passionate. You're like this kid's got something. And i didn't see it. I didn't think it was possible to build a team. That could actually win the finals around the stuff that he did D do you think he's changed or do you think that we're just seeing what he could do the whole time a little both i. I honestly think you gotta look at macmillan nate mcmillan when they hired him you know they're fourteen and twenty without wh- before mcmillan coetzer but the most important thing is for everything that trade could do at he can do everything think about it. He could score from half court. You know he's got cory range he. He's got that floater which has become one of the most devastating offensive weapons in the game right now because he goes to the basket. And you're like right up until the final second. No one knows. Is he going to do the floater. Or is he going to give that alleyoop to to clean cappella. John collins he. He paralyses defenses with it so he could penetrate he draws fouls we know that and can shoot free throws in eighty five eighty six percent free throw shooter but i think the biggest change is what he's been doing with his teammates. Now you can say Bogey came back. Bogey was out yonder. Hunter was out and back and now out again. Gallinari was out for a while. So now you got those shooters around him. And i think nate mcmillan. And i'm actually a story running tomorrow about. This is the one that finally convinced them like. Look you're you're you're a great talent but if you really want to get where you wanna go like your majer not an all star your majesty. Not an all. Nba selection. You gotta win dude. Because that's when those things come if you wanna win you gotta find a way to remember to keep these other guys. Involved and one of the things nate did was. He showed him film of trae common dribbling crossing half court shooting from the logo and the expression on his teammates face you know. Sometimes i don't think you you're young guy. Trace twenty two is used to have in that boulder on his shoulders trying to convince everybody that he belongs. Well everybody knows you belong but if you really want to fit in you make everybody around you better and if you look at the numbers. He's averaging ten and a half assists in this postseason that to me is so much more significant than the points. I'm i'm stating the obvious. I think in that regard. It's something that i i could have seen happening for years from. Now as he got older and he lost for a few more years than all that stuff. I can't remember another star basketball player. Having the light bulb go off midseason. Because i think he's a really good team now to what you're saying about what they did when he showed him the expressions his team rallies around him now. I don't feel like they did that. Really until the coaching change. I felt like he was on an island. Who's going to do his own thing and as talented as he was. I just didn't feel like he was part of something. And now like you mentioned bogdanovich earlier and that was when this flipped on by diamonds comes back name. Ryland showed up but now the has got like they'd beat the they'd be one leg bibi walkie with solomon hill playing like big bits. I know and play was able to navigate the game. He was so spectacular and a third quarter and he basically played lopez on the court. And now we're in a situation With that series which. We'll talk about later where it's like each team now has an achilles heel and it'd be it will become an achilles heel contest at some point but i think there's two things with him at talked about one of my stick but i'm a rerun it Just like the little guy being the toughest guy in the court thing which is so rare but has such a cool legacy rate it was it was why some two titles yeah. It was average team to the finals. It was wide dany. Age was willing to trade two first rounders and al jefferson for iverson. Even two thousand six. There is not a lot of guys like this. We kind of skipped a generation. Nash was kind of the he inherited from my everson. Like the tough as nails point. But nash's six three i don. You'd stood next tragedy. He might be six one. Max may be may be but toughly i in the court so you have that. But then there's this performing element that he's bringing into this stuff and he's b- he's better on the road the same way you covered some incredible bird games. Eighties were bird. Loved nothing more than just go to seattle and just be like by one time. I'm here. I'm shutting everyone down. I feel trae legs being on the road almost more than home in the stuff he was doing less than in milwaukee where he. There's a defiance to him. That is so cool. I'm so glad it's back. Because i felt like the nba was missing. Just a little something like jason. Tatum doesn't have that. Quality booker has a little bit. Mitchell has a tiny bit but not really but trae. This is i cou. He is watching the game. Must i reggie miller. I'm rambling reggie miller. Reggie miller was so delighted. 'cause you could see reggie. This is like having my grandson out here like all the stuff is so anyway i. I don't know. I don't know if i saw that side coming either so i just gave you a lot to work with. Let's go the little guy thing i promise. Iverson the right and the little thing is so real and anyone that's ever even played. I would say this is even true like in pickup basketball in any town city. Rucker park anywhere. The little guy has to be so much smarter so much better so much more arrogant or he can't succeed. You just really can't and trae young got that from the very you know. I mean i did that long story on him few months ago and my favorite story from that that whole thing was so you know. A new coach moves to town in norman oklahoma. And they're like he's like. Oh i want to run summer league stuff for the for the varsity. Who should i invite. And they're like well you know here. Are the returning players in. Yeah there's this eighth grader. He thinks he's hot shit. You know we're not really sure how good is but you know you should probably invite him and be entertained. And so trae young's in the eighth grade. Okay is in the eighth grade. He hasn't even in high school yet. He shows up at this summer. Workout that he you know almost wasn't invited to you. And the first thing he does is go to the front of the line.

"Here's the thing. So kevin durant. Spectacular score made most gifted score. We've ever seen in history. The game right can do that. Cairo irvine is a really gifted score as well. So now you're asking to say hey big score and playmaker. I've seen careers a playmaker. The balls in his hands a lot and i get that but when james harden is on. The floor allows cairo just to his shot. And it gives a different dynamic. Because now james is the one making around you better and now you take that off the court. I'm not saying they can't get it done. I just got in bucks going blue. Who gets in their way. The milwaukee bucks get in your way. The should they if they don't if they don't then we're going to have a defcon five type of scenario. It's going to turn into a really this puts on a lot of heat on the milwaukee bucks coach but we set up here and we talked about. Doc rivers not making execution strategies in the first game philadelphia and the hawks if they don't get a win or if this turns into their up three one and buxton averge being eliminated without james harden. That's going to be a huge huge red flag. It's not saying he's gonna miss the rest of the series though so he had hamstring tightness and he misses saint one year eighteen eighteen games year same amps. Like he missed like it's not like something that's just going to get better and with a player like him in the way he plays is not like you know. Just play through it. S not something you want to do with the player land if the if the nets win tonight without james harden i'm not rushing back to come to sit there and watch se what happens in game three resting up as long as you guess. I'll say it you're alluding to it. I'll say it bucks to win tonight. They have to have the mentality of winning and setting that tone of you have to win this game and take control of series now that you know that they've got one injury they've got one and you got to put pressure you honestly if you're the bucks it's now or never like this. Is the game. Well now what you did to. The celtics is is nice. I mean i started. The heat is nice. You kind of exercise routine but this right. Here's where you start to make your claim as that team that you better start taking us seriously. And tonight's the night you do it. And if they don't they go down to go back to milwaukee milwaukee you know obviously be fan base will be going crazy but if brooklyn going in there still when they come back at three one now but it's beyond all of that. It's because they have an injury it's because they have that in the back of their minds. It's because you know that game one was about you. Not making shots wasn't about the nets played you well defensively. It wasn't about that. You didn't make any shots. You missed a lot of threes. Which is a big part of what you do. You got away from a little bit of what you do as well but the three point shot is what they do they also defensively take away the pain and they make you take a lot. Were you missing. A lot of threes was open with her. Was it that christmas shooting. I'm just shooting too hard. I'm not shooting clear enough like why are you missing. You said you said they. They looked like they were sped up. Well yeah i said i said. It's the jam before the game. Sorry i think the pace of this game is going to be so important because brooklyn is going to want to make it a fast paced game. The more you accumulate the number of possessions in a game it allows him to play like it's a policy street ball version like rucker park. I've been saying that all the time but we know us in the first quarter when it came out jaanus dominated the block lopez dominated the block like they started 'push and that's also how you attack him into rent. You get kevin durant foul trouble. We haven't talked about that right. Talk if you attack k. d. or kyrie valuable. Then how do you manage your brooklyn so attack that offensively to you attack that by matchups by matchups and that happens in a half court slow the pace of the game down. That's what coach bud has to do and not get into this one on one on one just play and see blake griffin can keep this up to right the way he was shooting threes and all my jobs. Keep this up to keeps going the bench. Yeah you're gonna lose all right. Let me see you're if you're supporting cast can keep doing it but it is. I definitely this injury levels the playing field now in this series. And if you're gonna walk if you're jaanus you've got to walk into this game and think this is must win that technically but in your mind this has to be a must win game. There's no doubt about speaking on us. Market madness lead eight one name wonders a regional final. We have going on right now at kisha at key. Jay z on twitter jaanus versus yadi in the one name wonders. Yati molina janas dominant ways. Sixty one point five percent to thirty eight point. Five percents saint louis market. You wanna get your guy wanted to close we all. We got twenty hours to go so after right then. That number will change or maybe not. Depending on the performance kishan jay was presented by progressive insurance august..

"Yeah here's the thing. So kevin durant. Spectacular score made most gifted score. We've ever seen in. The history of the game. Right can do that. Cairo irvine is a really gifted scores. Well so now you're asking say hey be a gift to score and a playmaker. I've seen career as a playmaker. The ball in his hand. Like i get that. But when james harden is on the floor allows kyrie just to his shot and it gives a different dynamic because now james is the one making arizona around you better and you take off the court. I'm not saying they can't get it done. I just i look. I think blue who gets in their way. The milwaukee bucks get in their way they should they if they don't if they don't then we're going to have a defcon five type of scenario. It's gonna turn into a really. This puts on a lot of heat on the milwaukee bucks coach. But we set up here and we talked about. Doc rivers not making execution and the first game of philadelphia and the hawks if they don't get a win or turns into their up three one and the bucks and averge of being eliminated without james harden. That's going to be a huge huge red flag. It's not saying he's going to miss the rest of the series though so he had hamstring tightness and he missed the same thing here. Eighteen eighteen games this year. Same hampsh- like he missed like it's not like something that's just going to get better and with a player like him in the way he plays. It's not like oh just play through it. I guess not something. You want to do with player land if the if the nets win tonight without james harden i'm not rushing back to combat needs to sit down and watch what happens in game three rest him up as long as you i'll say it. You're you're alluding to it. I'll say it bucks have to win tonight. They have to have them and talent of winning and setting. That tone of you have to win this game and take control of a series now that you know that they've got one injury they've got one and you've got to put pressure honestly if you're the bucks it's now or never like this. Is the game like you did to. The celtics is is nice. I mean sorry. The heat is nice. You you know exercise a little team but this right here is where you start to make your claim as that team that you better start taking seriously and tonight's the night you do it. And if they don't they go down to go back to milwaukee milwaukee you know obviously fan base will be going crazy but if brooklyn going in there still wanna come back at three one now but it's beyond all that because they have an injury it's because they have that in the back of their minds. It's because you know that game one was about you not making shots wasn't about the nets played you well defensively. It wasn't about that you didn't make any shots. Missed a lot of threes. Which is a big part of what you do. You got away from a little bit of what you do as well but the three point shot is what they do they also defensively take away the paint and they make you take a lot. Were you missing. A lot of threes though was open. What was it that christmas thomas shooting. I'm just shooting too hard. Not shooting clear enough like why. Are you missing. you said they. They looked like they were sped up. Well yeah i said. I said it's the jalen before the game. The pace this game is going to be so important because brooklyn is going to want to make it a fast paced game. The more you accumulate the number of possessions in a game it allows him to play like it's a power street ball version of rucker park. I've been saying that all the time but we know us in the first quarter when it came out jaanus dominated the block lopez dominated the block like they start putting and that's also how you attack him to rent you get kevin durant and foul trouble. We haven't talked about that right talking about if you attack k. d. or kyrie gets invaluable. Then how do you manage your brooklyn so attack that offensively to you attack that by matchups by nat chops and that happens in the half court. Slow the pace of the game down. That's what coach has to do and not get into this one on one on one display shoot to lot threes and see if blake griffin can keep this up right the way he was shooting threes. And all i see my up to keeps going off the bench. Yeah you're gonna lose off all right. Let me see what you're if you supporting cast can keep doing it but it is. I definitely believe this injury levels the playing field now in the series. And if you're milwaukee if you're jaanus you've gotta walk into this game and think this is must win. It's not technically but in your mind this has to be a must win game. There's no doubt about speaking of the honest and market madness lead eight one name wanders a regional final. We have going on right now at kisha at key. Jay z on twitter jaanus versus yada in the one name wonders yati molina janas dominant. Sixty one point five.

We can't let this little he's not going to beat us. He's not going to beat it. You know, I'm sorry, so they they double them and triple them and everything else off and Matt bukas video.

Well, it's not a good static good environment to live in certain areas, but not going to prep school things of that nature. It's just not good New York or you know an eighties and nineties it was you know, we we lived and we we got we got wage. To play basketball that we truly loved and the housing, you know, the the was a little better fighter. You have a good. Hey, do you have a great story of playing in the Parks? I one time like somebody showing up something something that you will never forget of going when there is Rucker Park or somewhere else, you know, LeFrak City pop out over at all got stories, but I you know, I played in the LeFrak City Park lcta. That's what they called it and you know playing against big guys and I just had I just had a great great performance out there. I I don't have to I'll have to store I can't put the stories together know but I have my kitty Anderson classic fourteen years my neighborhood I gave back because that's when on the court that's where that's where you know, I became something, you know out there I couldn't I couldn't put the story together. Well dead. Well, you tell you all the good stories quickly. Yeah. Oh no, we've all seen a countless guys who were fast up and down the court and yeah, he murdered Alan Iverson Yaris and drove.

He yeah, he was dead negotiating down the door that I have ever seen is a unique style bulb. A lot of people say that, you know, I remind them what tiny Archibald I'm left-handed unless like another another thing you guys are both left-handed love hair dead. You know, I'll pick the Godfather of all you guys at a New York though, seriously of the point guards of the last seventy years. Yeah, Lenny Wilkens. Yeah lady woken place. I've heard he was great. That's great news, you know and where did cozy come hey where did cuz he play in New York Jackson and you know, and another great that I love is Lloyd George knew he had a rough life, but he he he was awesome. Yeah. I listen. There are a lot of guys that came out in New York, like like like sweet pea like Lenny Cooke with passion tell, you know, like smashing made it he made it but a lot of it's hard coming out in New York having everybody.

Yeah. I mean, that's Kimba in a nutshell. He's going to have to score the ball for you. But without the you know, missing one of those pieces the night one thing really, I guess stick out with me was that when the Celtics got down what they rely on they said rely on that crowd to get them back into age. I'm going that's not going to be there. And so they're going to have to I guess manufacturer more For The In Crowd doesn't give them with their own players, you know brands that laid-back guy the coaches but the players have to get motivated that much more pumped up. You saw that the other day I guess in in the the game before last when Taco hit the jump shots. I thought the players were doing cartwheels off in the Florida guys on the page. I was like, oh look like Rucker Park look, like this isn't the street part, you know, all the guys going on break their ankles or whatever or someone gets, you know gets a three point in there.
