"He says the deal was done and that your father had basically agreed to it, but it was but Kobe's got a no trade clause. I've got to go to him and get him to sign off and Kobe said, I need a couple of days. I need to talk to my family. I need to consider this. This is in 2007, of course, when Kobe was feeling like he wanted out. And your dad said, we can't wait that long. So he basically put a 24 hour deadline on it. And at the end of 24 hours, Kobe hadn't given him an answer. And so Jerry bus went to do Mars and I think to Davidson, the pistons owner said, sorry, it's off. But in dumars sense and he knows he's a veteran of this stuff. Nothing's done until it's done. But the deal was agreed to. All it needed was Kobe's sign off or for Kobe to come to a conclusion on it. What is your own recollection of that from where you were sitting there? Well, you know, let's see, we've heard Mark Cuban say he thought he had Kobe, then we've heard Chicago thought they had COVID. Then the clippers thought they are going to be so, I mean, yes, I think that his, you know, when losing did not sit well with Kobe. And so that first year after Phil left, you know, things didn't go well. The Rudy tomjanovich had to step down after three months of Kobe losing. He couldn't take it. I don't really know why he stepped down, but he stepped down. And then, you know, there was, you know, an opportunity for Phil to come back and then Phil comes back and, you know, we lose in the first round of the playoffs to Phoenix. And it was really kind of like, what's going to change that, you know, we're going to be able to get back into that contention. And in the meantime, Shaq winning championship. I think, you know, really lit the fire under Kobe. And the same with felt like Phil did not like losing in the first round. He said, I'd rather not make the playoffs than losing the first round. It's like it's really hard. So, you know, I think Kobe applied pressure that, you know, and. If you would have been traded, I guess that would have been that would have been a disappointment. But I know my dad and my dad figured out something and was able to make a move and get pal Gasol and I think in particular that trade was so kept so under wraps that had it leaked out, there's no way that certain teams would have let how come to the Lakers. They would have tried to hijack the tray, offer more than what we were offering, but the trade was announced. And that's it. There was no leak or anything. And then pow coming to the Lakers, of course, you know, just he just took off from day one. He and Kobe were meant to play together. And that's an exciting thing this season is that we're going to be retiring post Jersey at a game. So I think that it was real. That Kobe was applying pressure. Now whether he really wanted to leave, I don't think so.

"Of Rhode Island. I broadcast that game for the student radio station, sitting on the stage behind a basket. Wow. And they beat us, and he wasn't the reason they beat us. Bill butler was, but he played well, but he was bob Lanier. Two years later, there were 23 and two that year, by the way. Two years later, they are in the final four. And he's by far the biggest reason. But they enter it without him. He was injured in a freak accident at the waning seconds of the regional final game against Villanova where he kicking and throwing over his butt. Chris Ford, ironically, a future teammate got rolled up into him and he tore his MCL. He was not available for the final four. They put up a heroic battle against Jacksonville with nobody over 6 5 in a lineup and they lost a competitive game, but obviously, you know, they would have no chance. I among many believe they could have beaten UCLA that year that was the steep Patterson center year that in between year between and Walton and they were better than Jacksonville with him. He's a better player than Gilmore, period. Get that in your head, folks. And anyway, so that's why I care. But I'm in here, by the way, in about a full draft 1970, a draft that included Pete maravich, Rudy tomjanovich, Dave cowens, and, oh, and then the second round, Calvin Murphy and tiny Archibald. In the second round, okay? He was the number one pick in the draft. Now, bob linear was about the full guys in the 70s. Think about it. Kareem was in his prime counts, went up and went two rings. Nate Thurman, Welles Reed, west sunset. And then in the other league, Daniel Daniels, artist Gilmore, later on, Bill Walton, Moses Malone. This is the center is the plane in the 70s folks. We all fashioned as Al Maguire would say aircraft carrier centers..

I'm going to name my point guard and I'm just going to give him a jump shot because he did everything great. Jason Kidd. That's my point guard and I'm going to give him Steph Curry's jump shot. Or even Mark prices jump shot. Listen, I've never played poor guy in my life until I was a rookie year in the NBA. And if that ain't the heart of just get thrown into, you know, especially when you have a Scottie Pippen in the chemo one and a Charles Barkley, man, you know, you had to limit your mistakes. I didn't really have to do much, right? I just control what I can control. You know, I was topping assist attorney ratio. And then when you have those guys like that that are so good, you know, you don't have to play with the ball this much, right? Hopefully y'all don't get stripped. And then, you know, you pass it inside and go to a corner. So that was my rookie year. I made all rookie team doing that. But I credit a lot of that to my rookie year preparation of playing a point, or just, you know, being a basketball player period. But actually playing the point was to Alvin Williams who played footballing over and then he played for Portland in Toronto. So he helped me with a lot of my point guard skills growing up because album was always a point guard. So he was, you know, the smart point guard to get everybody involved. And I think for me, being in my rookie year, I just wanted to be on the floor. So the coach told me, you know, you got to pick up trash, you know, after games, then that's what I had to do. So that was my thing. I encourage children, younger kids, whatever the position is in any sport that controls the game. The playmaker, I think you should learn that one first. Because see when you once you learn that when I think the whole perspective perspective of the whole spectrum of the game opens up, right? So when boxing, of course, you're your own point guard, right? But in football, I was a quarterback, right? And then I moved to wide receiver, but then back to quarterback. But it shows me, you know, my old line, in my back, my back feel my receiver's slots, you know, post oh my guys. I know exactly what I know my def I know what the defense is going to do to us. So I'm understanding the game from a bigger perspective than a three or a four or a 5 man, or two, even a two guy, right? They just learned in their positions. So it's for us as point guards to get everybody in their position because he would the coach usually does is a culture say, yo, listen, cat. Listen, we're going to run this play and then we're going to run this play. Then we're going to run this place. So you got to remember three plays. And if you score rookie year and Rudy tomjanovich was like this, if you scroll on that play, run it again. Keep running it. And then don't look over here no more. If you don't score, run the next play. So now I got to maybe four or 5 plays down down the line. I have to remember the next play, and then put everybody in a position. Now I got to figure out, okay, the key mics it over here, this person likes it over there. They were hot over here. I'm becoming a little more strategic of how I, you know, enter the game mentally, right? So can I get Corey maguette, the ball early so he can get us into bonus early as a team because myself saying pacelle and Elton brand attacks the rim. So if Cory gets us in the bonus early, it kind of we dictate the game. It's like just different things like that. So, you know, I advise any younger person to learn the point where I position just for that perspective, right? It's just like, you know, I'm a single dad. So I have my own household. So you're not cooking in the cleaning and it is and the kids in the packing and lunches and I got to do it. You know, and as much as you want, you know, the family, 'cause the mother doesn't make some job as well. But you know, as much as, you know, you can't depend on someone else to do something because then when they're out there, what do I do? It's like, yo, turn the channel for me. And then they go and you're like, I don't even know how to work the remote. It's like, I need to learn how to do all this myself. So I think that perspective is being the point guard in life, right? And you don't really have to really control it, but just understand it. So when those people are not there, then your leadership skills starts to kick in. You know, when Steve came in, you know, he was phenomenal to me. It's a lot of people. You know, he's super explosive. I mean, he was the only guard that I saw on a nightly basis that would get ten, 12, 15 boards. And this is at a time where barren and Steve were the shorter guards and the league and we, at that time, in the early 2000s, at that time, the league was predominantly 7 footers. So you was an inside out game. And these guys are going in the attack and the Jermaine O'Neill's in the rashi Wallace's and the Tim Duncan's list goes on Lonzo mornings. It didn't matter. And to see Steve every single day. Regardless of hemoglobin being an older or Charles Barkley or Calvin kato was younger at the time, practice was even amazing. And he kind of taught me how to attack the rim because I picked up a ball at 13. I wasn't even the basketball player. I was a boxer and football player. So in playing basketball, you know, what guys better than you, I think that's what helped me elevate watching Steve crashed the boards on offense and dunking it over big guys. I think I can do that too. So I think that's what helped me with Steve was to use my athleticism to the best of my ability. We had a really good squad as well. I mean, Steve was at the one I was in two. Jimmy Jackson was at the three, who's amazing, you know, all around player. And then Calvin and Yao Ming. So we had a really great squad and we had guys coming off the bench, but you know, just to see that team, what Gary Payton, you know, who's one of the best point guards ever. And then you have Kobe Bryant, who's arguably the best you guard ever, you know, and then you have Rick Fox who's one of the best role players in Derek Fisher's coming off the bench and then Carl Malone, one of the best power forwards,

"Two seasons raptors. Go on to win at all. Miami goes on to get to the finals. How oh man. I'm going to do it anyway sometimes. I get frustrated with the hypotheticals. But i'm gonna do it anyway. Because i'm curious where we live. If nobody thought the hawks were going to get here to the conference final to the conversation. No don't tell me you did like your life. Nobody nobody outside of trae young and rafer by the way mr rafer young with the other day i been said that's why i was good but anyway here. We go hawks dude the bucks that immense favor by taking care of the sixers if that matchup is sixers bucks jaanus gets injured again. Is this the third time we see the same nonsense but the crazy thing about this finals. It's the same the playoffs. It's that the sixers weren't the sixers. The celtics weren't the celtics. The lakers got hurt. This is one of the sixers. Why does this is. Why the sixers. Because ben simmons was a disaster. He was a mess wasn't did he have injury that i missed. Nobody would know he just he yes he did no he did. He had the neck up injury he had some. He had some issues up here that they got to figure out what. That's not like trace that you told me the sixers that number one seed sixers. All season was the same team you saw in the playoffs and this team had problems you could see. It started with one of their most important. It may have had problems correct. But that's not like janas being out because of a hyperextended neither trading out because he stepped on a officials foot. Like i can't. I don't have time for this no not not deliveries. Don't count now at this. He had mental injuries. And i refuse to allow us to put that entire series on ben simmons alot like all of them was wetting the bed down. Well also it'd be injury was playing on a torn now. That part is true and early in the earlier which cost him could make layup member. He went over twelve second. Half we could make that would have been a win that he should have won that series in five. You should have been over four. One wasn't breath wreath. Hey listen the larger hypothetical this is the my wheelhouse. I will have the larger point though for me is how close where the bucks to potentially third time injuries. Snipes them even. If you give me healthy trae right. It wasn't founded exactly. I mean they were that close. And i think that to me is why i can't entertain this conversation around the astros. Although we have what record nine superstars hurt this year. I can't entertain it because every year something listen. Health is fleeting. You're that close in terms of your margin of error one way or another ankle. Twist the wrong way. You know what. I mean i will. I will end the astros conversation this way. Okay do we have an astros when the rockets won back to back. Champion is there assets. There is the greatest player on the planet. Took two years old honestly than anybody say. Well akiem not winning that title. If michael jordan still playing for the bulls that did anyone bring that up at his hall of fame. Speech rudy tomjanovich with people saying that about about the rockets. Now nobody brings that up. So why is it. Why is there an asterisk. Now when there wasn't then when the greatest player on the planet who had just won three in a row who might have think about this might have won eight straight. Ooh this is bill. Russell territory might have. But he wasn't in the game. There was no ashes because he was quietly his thing elsewhere. The greatest player of the game and everyone else's proceeding this year. We've had the most front facing voice of it all suggest that he the ron didn't say astros but by deductive reasoning. He's given birth to this an injury conversation. Which has allowed us to spouse on lebron abruptness. This they were the to me. Y'all go ahead with this conversation. I love. I love lebron because of obviously how important is to the game one hundred percent we also like i know how i'd be if i was him i'd be just as petty. Listen have you just suspended. We don't lose an ashes on all things considered. I am not naive to act as if this wasn't uncharted. Territory for all of us whether you plan an nba or just living your life doing this on the heels of a pandemic. There's going to be certain things that make us all uncomfortable and to be quite honest with got another year of a tight turnaround so just get ready for more astros which is not stupid. Can i ask you this though. Speaking of astra and like how fans should feel about certain things. I feel a certain way so tonight. It's stanley cup. Final game for the tampa bay. Lightning could win in a sweep over the montreal canadians to win their second. Straight stanley cup. That can happen tonight. And the islanders. My favorite team. Yeah my favorite hockey team lost in seven games to the lightning loss. One nothing in the in game. Seven painful i think about it. Am i supposed to feel good. And it's the same thing like the knicks knicks. Lost to the hawks. The hawks cards at the conference final. It's that's another one of my teams so with that in mind. Do i feel good that you know what the honors lost to a dominant champion. That just won their second title and you really push them as far as you could push them to the edge and they took everything to overcome so i feel good about that.

"A few legends. That played during this era celebrity players. Thrilled fans with their incredible skills on the court but some behavior was not worth celebrating on august twentieth. Nineteen eighty the la times reported on multiple accounts of cocaine abuse by nba athletes. The general manager of the utah jazz even speculated that there wasn't a single team in the league that didn't have a drug problem new york knicks star. Micheal ray. Richardson had five. Documented stays at rehabilitation clinics new jersey nets. Forward bernard king had been arrested for cocaine. Possession has had hawks guard eddie johnson. Some estimates claimed seventy five percent of all. Nba players drugs. These habits culminated in the death of shooting guard. Terry furlough furlough died in a fatal car accident. In nineteen eighty an autopsy found ballum and cocaine in his blood. Substance abuse also made players vulnerable to all sorts of criminal activity f. b. i. File suggest that during the nineteen eighty one eighty two season at least three new york knicks players were indebted one of the largest drug dealers on the east coast. These debts lead the knicks to participate in point shaving or intentionally missing shots in order to get a particular score this way. Their drug dealer could place a bet on that score and because of the players cooperation he was guaranteed to win. It was the players way of paying him. Back drugs also wreaked havoc on the players. Mental and physical health stimulants like cocaine can increase in violent behavior. And in this era many players had an extremely physical style of play intentional. Fouls were tolerated. Fights broke out between players on the court and often good whole teams involved. The violence led to frequent significant injuries. For example houston rockets player rudy. Tomjanovich career was cut. Short after an infamous nineteen seventy seven brawl between his team. The la lakers another player punched rudy so hard. His skull was dislocated and spinal fluid leaked out of his brain and whole thing was caught on camera. The video was shown on news stations. Over and over its amended the image of the nba as supporting violence. Instead of sportsmanship fans became disillusioned with the state of the game. Players seemed more like than heroes is. They threw punches and dabbled in drugs. Dwindling fans lead to fewer televised games and further negative publicity and all encompassing disaster loomed on the horizon the end of the nba. Television deal with cbs. Their contract was about to expire in. It was worth over ninety one million dollars to the nba. But cbs didn't seem to value basketball games anymore. Most games aired late night even if there were played during prime time by all appearances. Cbs wouldn't bother renewing the contract to nba. Commissioner david stern. It was obvious the business was failing so he decided to take matters into his own hands and change the draft.

He's like in. Mj's face like agitating him the time shoving him extracurricular trash talk just had no fear of like poking the bear so to speak there. By the way there's an argument we'll wrap with this. There's an argument. That danny aines should be at a hall of fame as as if there were the sort of like this. This is what hurt rudy tomjanovich case for a long time and now he's a big advocate retired johnny bench getting in is there's no category for like you. Were pretty good at lots of stuff.

"rudy tomjanovich" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"So game five. Tonight john ireland. Anthony davis not expected to play reportedly not expected to play. I think a couple of reporters have that down which means this is going to require a tour de force. Lebron james vintage performance to lift us to a game. Five victory tonight in phoenix. What do you think. I'm feeling good. I actually think that the pressure is more on. The sons in the lakers interesting. I we have lebron dow. I mean mace all that. There's a lot of doom and gloom a lot of naysayers running around. We have the superhero. He just needs to go full space. Yes he does and if he does. I think the lakers have a great chance to win tonight. Even if they don't win tonight. I picked the lakers in seven. So the suns win tonight. The lakers cover home court on thursday. And then it all comes down to a one game playoff you can bet against lebron and a one game playoff. No but i. But i've said this book i said this before. I'll say it again. I think the lakers will go as far this year as anthony davis take them. I mean you know if you look at it. Lebron is lebron is an anomaly right. Lebron is a superhero. As you said. There's no question about that at the same time. The lakers won the two games in this series where anthony davis was absolutely dominant and they lost the two game. One where davis just wasn't himself in game four when he left at halftime. I mean they can't win the championship without a healthy. Anthony davis mace. I agree with you. They can't win the championship without a healthy anthony davis but they can win two games without him. And that's all you need to worry about right. Now is just winning. Two games. put the forest ahead of the trees. Yeah we gotta get past phoenix. That's not expression by the way you don't put the forest ahead of the trees. That's that's your carton before the horse. You're not forcing before the tree. You're not seeing the forest for the trees there. you go. that's it. Yeah but here's the thing we all the only thing. If you're a laker fan that you should be worried about is getting two more wins in the series and we can do that without a d like i agree if you wanna look big picture and talk about things in the macro agree with you. That winning the title with adam is probably not happening. But all we gotta do is win two games and then we buy some time until the next round starts right and this is the i mean rudy tomjanovich. You're just went into the hall of fame. Used to say. never underestimate. The heart of a champion lakers are not going down without a fight. I know it doesn't look great but we have lebron. We have a couple of guys who are literally playing for their next contract. And andre drummond and dennis schroder who are under restricted free agent at the end of the year. They certainly want to use this national stage to come up. Big sure lebron. Just lebron just needs yosemite sam. Lola bunny bugs. He needs like his guys and beat the sons. I think tonight is fascinating. Because you know lebron's going to show up the is is phoenix right. And there's there's the ongoing question of so lebron is in his age thirty six season right right. There's the question. And he's he's dealt with an ankle sprain and reportedly not necessarily one hundred percent that reporting has been out there. So it's it's lebron sort of fighting time in dealing with injury. A moment where the lakers need really ache. A classic lebron performance. I mean this is like this is like thirty eight point. Triple double night for lebron something like that. It's going to require. I think to win this game and by the way i also think one of the key players may denied just randomly pick the number thirty eight. Yes you your something interesting. Yeah this exact scenario played out march third at staples center. The lakers played phoenix without ad. But with lebron lebron had thirty eight points five rebounds and six assists. yeah but the sun's one by ten so that means lebron can be lebron tonight. I think what will decide. This is how the rest of the guys play sure. I heard two critical components to the game. Tonight if the lakers gonna win it to the first one is. They've got to get back to playing lockdown defense. They were the number one rated defensive efficiency team in the nba this year. And they've got to get back to that they got to get back to challenging people. Their usual defense wasn't there on sunday this weird stat but la contested. Only forty of phoenix's eighty five field goal attempts. That's forty seven percent. That's the lowest mark by the lakers in the postseason since espn began tracking these things in two thousand fourteen. So really the lowest in the last two years because the lakers weren't in the play right right expected but still the lakers are known as a team. That doesn't give up a lot of open shots. They contest everything. They gotta get back to that. That's number one and they've got to start making some shots. Yeah there do they. They're shooting twenty nine percent on threes and thirteen forty in game. Four was a little better thirty two percent but still well below their average. I think they do those two things. They get back to playing lockdown defense. They hit some threes. And they're right in this thing tonight. Aren't you excited to watch tonight. I am excited high drama man. This is it and what you invest whole season and you do not think that i would hate to come out of this and face elimination on third or face to elimination games face to elimination games now. Supposedly according to rachel nichols in the jump which i was just watching. Lebron in his first round playoff career has never lost two consecutive games. The other thing is he's fourteen no period in the first round. And everybody's saying oh the lakers are dead. They don't have. Anthony davis more about lebron than it is a day that is now it is but i mean lebron is the guy that you don't wanna see on the other side line if you're if you're playing for your life yeah we all run they don't..
"rudy tomjanovich" Discussed on Westward
"His name was Larry Bird. You are listening to westward on the Dan Patrick podcast network. We'll be right back. The clippers relocation to Southern California was due in large part to the Los Angeles Lakers. Writer Terry Pluto, author of several books on the NBA's formative years, explains that the city of Los Angeles figured prominently in the landscape of the league at that time. The interesting thing to me about the Lakers moving was that began I kind of gold rush. If you think about Los Angeles in the 1960s, you're not that far away from World War II. My father was stationed out in Santa Barbara in LA during the war. And I mean, he really did talk about it like the promised land, the land of milk and honey. You know, you didn't have all the pollution in a sense of overcrowding and is a sense of endless possibility. And I really believe that was also feeling the short two and the players. They were so excited. I remember when I interviewed like hot rod homily and Belgian bay or in some of these others, then we're telling me when they came out there, you know, they hopped in their cars and went short even told his players. I mean, it sounds like the wagon trace. Sell everything you got, just keep what you can and put it in your car and maybe get a little trailer behind your car, just go on out there and buy new stuff in California. That's really what short was told the players. The success of the Lakers was responsible for the NBA's West Coast expansion, and the creation of the ABA, which puts flag in the ground with over a dozen teams. And in the long run, it was good for the game, but there was a period from the merger to 1979 where it looked like the game just wasn't going to survive. When you look at the NBA in the late 70s, they were in huge trouble partly because of what was done with the ABA. But this was like a long guerrilla war that lasted 9 years and neither side ever expected that. The ABA figure the NBA with capitulate and taking some of the teams, the NBA figure of the ABA would run out of money and go away. And the meantime, the ABA did things like began taking underclassmen with sensor Haywood, the quote unquote hardship rule. They were just stealing players, they even stole officials from the NBA. They did a lot of things. It was a lot warfare. The ABA gave out a lot of these contracts where they were paid out over 20 years and a lot of the money wasn't guaranteed. And agents are taking those ABA contracts going over the NBA and then getting guaranteed contracts out of that. And so it was hurting the NBA economically because they didn't understand what was going on. And it nearly bankrupt everything the 70s was a dark period for the NBA because while the merger brought the best of both leagues together, it also brought the worst. The NBA was still an old boy network. It was your dad's leak, not a whole lot of pizzazz, right? The ABA was the opposite. So you had this weird hybrid of players and teams and styles that just didn't mesh. And the result was a league of long hair short shorts and a lot of fistfights. Getting a little physical get out of my way. I should say that play was not in the playbook. It's not. Look at the key go at it. Espressos are now, there's both pitches empty. And a melee is broken out here. They have brought police onto the floor. The NBA's encore violence had become a huge problem for the league. Game two of the 1977 finals was marred by an ugly brawl, involving the 76ers Daryl Dawkins, and the blazers Maurice Lucas. Early the next season would see Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, break his right hand while punching buck's center, Kent Benson. And just months later, a fight erupted between the rockets and the Lakers that would send rockets all star Rudy tomjanovich to intensive care. The NBA's brand at the time was at an all time low. Fights, drugs, sagging attendance, and it got so bad that by the end of the decade, CBS was showing the NBA Finals on taped away. Public interest in the NBA hadn't just dulled. It had all but disappeared. And the Los Angeles Lakers were no exception. By the 1978 79 campaign, attendance at the Lakers fabulous forum in Inglewood had dipped by nearly 200,000 fans since their championship season in 1972. Gone were the halcyon days of Baylor and goodrich and wilt. And though they had attained one of the league's best players in luau cinder, who had changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The team would only reach middling success. Made palpable by a familiar face at the end of the bench who shed his number 44 Jersey for a suit and tie. As the team's coach Jerry West was a very underrated coach. He made the playoffs every year he was on the bench. He won almost a 150 games. The ball was really bigger than his role as coach, is that Jerry kept the Lakers relevant in Los Angeles, which was key because just as the Lakers and really the city of Los Angeles had saved the NBA when they relocated from Minneapolis in 61, they were about to save it again only this time on a much bigger scale. My introduction was usually on a Saturday that worked for my parents at the time. Superior stamping point and this gentleman would come in by coins. And he would spend two, $300 on a Saturday, which was good money back then. This is in the late 60s. And he fill up his Whitman boo folder books. And after about a year or so, this was going on. He was a teacher at USC. He was a professor, which I thought was good. But Saturday afternoons were the fourth one coming in. And showing out those boards and he told me his name was doctor Jerry buss. Even at a young age, Gerald haddon bus understood the value of something rare. As a ten year old boy living in Los Angeles. He could often be found in his room sifting through jars of coins, hoping to fill out his penny board. Or studying the latest issue of stinking sons, numismatic circular. Though the boy would only spend a few years of his childhood in the city of angels before moving to the rugged rural plains of Wyoming. A love for both the city of Los Angeles and coin collecting would become passions. But it was his love of the latter that would bring him a lifelong friend

"Thank you for that end Welcome back to the show with you. Coast to coast and the number to call one eight hundred eight seven eight play. My voice keeps going. I'm just thinking about something. Mike levin said they said that third album was the first time they weren't paying two hundred and our in the studio and it could just relax. And i never even thought of that. I just figured that when you ran into studio you rented a studio but yeah if you're on the clock as he said two hundred and our maybe this is why you know led zeppelin black sabbath. They rented out these like british. Farmhouses put in some acoustic paths and settled. Just we'll just do it here. One eight hundred eight seven eight play by the way a courtesy of our buddy jimmy shapiro getting some updated odds. Nba lies just looking at the plan games. And i'm not a betting man. But i thought it was interesting. The over unders. The warriors lakers over under is the lowest because hornets pacers to twenty-eight whiz at caltex to thirty three spurs at grizzlies to twenty two warriors at lakers to nineteen and a half that half really bugs me because that's not arbitrary. They did their due. Diligence stated all the research there and that half is in there for reason. That's the thing that's scary. But you think a game with steph. Curry wouldn't have the lowest but especially the grizz. If you think about how. I mean sean maranto scorned. But he can't hitting threes. and. I don't know it's just a little bit weird but if you wanna throw down the odds today on the warriors winning the nba title is sixty six to one. So if you throw down ten bucks how about six hundred and sixty dollars. That's not bad. The favorite is still the nets followed by the lakers. Then the clippers then the jazz. It's interesting no sick. it's interesting no sixers i. Let's go out to the great state of michigan and we have mamane robert. How you doing robert. Hey man rick from california glad to be on with you. What's up buddy and thoughts. Random thoughts in the sense that Ben wallace was inducted in the hall of fame. I thought that was a real good Underdog guy on an underdog city made it to the hall of fame. He was a fantastic defensive force. I mean he was one of the most intimidating guys of his time. So deservedly yeah and when he was undrafted you imagine that go undrafted makes it to the hall of fame when you talk about the upcoming draft. I know how teams they want to build through the draft done times. You just need to roll the dice. Sometime with ben wallace type of acquisitions. That is certainly possible. And he was not only represented destroyed with that. I love the latinos robert. Hello i can hear you know there. You are. Tell us about michigami which means large lake. That's a gb word right Well thirty six states in the union are indian named so so it's widespread. Yeah especially in east parts. Wow thirty six. I would have said at least well. Maybe i stand corrected but but if you take out the thirteen colonies and And maybe Hawaii or something or florida florida's any also seminoles florida well florida's spanish. Yeah but yeah you think about. I mean obviously washington's not and california's not but the oregon idaho wyoming utah. Homa dakota minnesota iowa the missouri. The arkansas the tennessee going on and on there's no that's right. Yeah the delaware sketchy there with the with the british Colonies yeah well you name. A few after queens like maryland and virginia there and georgia's named after king george and carolina was after prince was after king. Charles okay seattle court show. We can learn a little geography. But it's worth it But another michigan story would be that also in related to the basketball hall of fame was Rudy tomjanovich also was inducted into hall of fame. And i listened to his his speech yesterday and If christians out there from houston you rudy rudy. Tomjanovich was a houston rocket through and through and he grew up in a town called Hamtramck michigan which is surrounded. It's an island inside of detroit. It's about miles by two miles square and It's it's heavily polish town they call. Gm plant poll town there but He came out of there and university of michigan. And then he had a big career in the nba. And that's squarely hall of famer. Also i can recommend listening to that speech. She had kaelin murphy on stage and Came alive one but he mentioned numerous people and then he was a real good guy. Yeah and it was very poignant to yesterday to see. Brian right right exactly with maybe down on the list. This you know as far as you know You know start on rudy in a in a lot of people's minds but not not not a When i was a kid it was such an infamous moment the kermit washington punch and shattered his cheekbones. Right and i remember that too. I think it was on sports illustrated cover or something or or it was newest came jogging after the fact and what this whole momentum than washington turnaround and punch them right in the face right right it was like i keep shot and that was terrible. I was so terrible. And you kinda on rudy t. You could kinda see those scars. Where they had he was he was out for a year or gel wired and the whole nine yards and he never was the same player to me after that i think he became more of a coach and he won titles as a coach and help them get through..

You're not just in N V p your all time great. I'm so proud of you. I love you forever and always. Kobe being Right? Yeah, I mean, absolutely incredible. And that was after 12.5 minutes of Vanessa Bryant just you know. Emptying their collective basketball soul there for everybody to see. You know, thanking everybody that she thought Kobe would want to thank Just an incredible, incredible performance. I mean that zoo crescendo right there like that's the ultimate her congratulating him, and I thought it was interesting one of the things that she said at the very Outside of the speech was that she Rarely, if ever. Complimented him publicly, You know, to media outlets or making public comment because so many people, his fans and media members were so effusive in their praise that she she did it to kind of keep him in check and keep him in line and make sure that You know, the ego never got out of control. And I don't know how much of that she meant or was being tongue in cheek, But I thought it was It was interesting. That was her prelude into the speech was so now for the first time, and I'm paraphrasing here, But I'm gonna sit here and just gush about you for the next 12 minutes. And it was. It was a phenomenal job. She she did a great job. Vanessa Bryant did And I don't know how next year's class lives up to that. You know what I mean? Like, I don't They've announced next year's Hall of Fame class, and it's Look, it's a bunch of basketball greats. But forget about the fact that this was Kobe Bryant. Going in posthumously. And just what that all means. You know, just focus on Kobe Bryant, the player Kobe Bryant. Top. What 10 12 player of all time. I mean, everybody's got their own lists an opinion Only your past 15 without getting to Kobe. Probably top 10. Right now. Some of you take top five. Um, Tim Duncan. I think similar arguments that Kobe all those championships great player. Did it differently, obviously different position. Different personality, different team. Certainly, you know, Kobe had his share of controversy following him A times. Duncan never really. But I think on the same level of player I think when you say top 10 top 15 somewhere there, Duncan and Kobe or both in there Kevin Garnett. He's right there. Maybe a quarter of a notch below both of those guys. Just because of all the success the elite title success. I know Garnet eventually got one with the Celtics. Great player. And and so those air we're talking to all time. All time greats and Kevin Garnett when you're a hall of Famer in all time, great, I suppose. Next year's class Good players, but Paul Pierce, Chris Bosch. And Wallace like these. Those are all classic second fiddle. Guys, You know, like great second fiddle guys like I don't want to diminish their accomplishments at all. Bosch made his bones his his most prominent Prominent stuff. I know He's a great player in Toronto, but not on any great teams. Really. He was a supporting guy for Dwayne Wade and And LeBron James Paul Pierce M V. P in the finals, But I think Arnett was the tour to force on that team. Ray Allen really good as well. Ben Wallace was the quintessential Dirty work guy for some Pistons teams that were really good, including a title winning team in 2004. Chris Webber's going in as well and whoever was a really good NBA player who was a great college player, too. It's just it's It's a really good class. It's just it pales in comparison to Garnet, Dunkin and Coby and Kobe going in posthumously in the spectacle, And I mean that a good way of his wife inducting him yesterday. It was just It was amazing. Amazing theater just really, really good stuff. The other members of the Hall of Fame class coaches. Rick Adelman J. Right, Bill Russell. Then w nd MBA Yolanda Griffith and Lauren Jackson. So I get a really good class. Just e mean it's tough to top Kobe, Duncan and Garnett in the same class. For me personally. Rudy Tomjanovich Going in long overdue, Great player, Great coach. He's going in more for his coaching, obviously than his plays a five time All Star's a player. He wasn't a Hall of Fame player. But he was a Hall of Fame coach and he was overall Hall of Fame and be a lifer, really. Rudy Tomjanovich. 855212 For CBS Bryant Gil Tyler will join me later this hour. We'll talk some cement BA.

Look, man, this is about getting the nose of the football across the plain of the end zone, and nobody is better at it than Tebow. Wait until you see what he does. When he gets on the field, Get him the ball and open space. He'll be shrugging defenders carrying defenders across again zone mark my words, I'll call you back. Next year or when the season's over. Empty but will be on the field. He will be on the team. He will be scoring touchdowns. Just Richard Richard. Yes, Okay, That's that's all Well and good. And you know, I'm all for Tebow getting this opportunity. You're I think your assessment of Tebow is probably a little higher than mine is in terms of what he's going to do. You have to promise me also that if he doesn't make the team that you're gonna call back in, Yeah, you can't just call me if you can just call me to gloat if he's dragging dudes into the end zone like you promised. Like if he doesn't make the 53 you got to call me back as well. Okay, I'll do that. I'll do that. Richard. I appreciate the phone call. I know you're not Richard. You're not. And you're listening right now, Richard, you hung up and you're listening right now. I'm gonna tell you right now that that this was like, this is like a bill that you know you're not gonna pay like I just handed you a bill. At a bar where your buddy is the bartender and you're looking at going on. They're gonna He's not gonna make me pay this. You know that. I hate Listen, man. I'm not your buddy bartending. Sean Pendergast here, man. I'm the host of this show. If Tebow doesn't make that team, Richard, you better call back in. Just Tim Tebow make the 53 man roster. There's got to be odds out there about that, right? I suppose he needs to sign first. That would help. I wonder what's taking so long to sign him? They're sitting here talking like this past week, Urban Meyer was on. I think he's on Cris Collinsworth podcast. He's like, Yeah. You know, we're working on it, and we're looking at it. And you know, if we do a deal, it should be soon and That's why I'm wondering how much of this is like a trial balloon just to see what the reaction is. To Tebow. For both Tebow and for urban Meyer..

"That's what I want to see. I do. I want to see all that talent on the floor. I was fortunate enough to be able to see The Warriors and the Cavs and so much unbelievable talent on the floor. There is nothing like it. Say what you want about the MBA doldrums of the regular season load management when you get to the finals. And you see for me it was LeBron Kyrie. You haven't loved Kevin Durant. Steph Curry, Draymond green, Clay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, When you see all those players on the same floor, sharing the floor and plane every possession As if it's the biggest possession. Player's life. You will You will certainly change your mind. On the MBA, but we don't get to see a lot of that A special the last two years Now Cove it had something to do with that. And you had a lot of the soft tissue injuries, invade the MBA and let's face it, load management guys just sitting, they have their money so that rubs people the wrong way. But it is amazing to see all that talent, so that's what I want to see in the NBA Finals. Um Unfortunately, I think it I think it would send a really bad message. For a lot of these teams in the future. About the regular season, the Lakers could and theoretically, they could end up with a 60 today if things go their way, and they beat the pelicans and Portland loses to Denver Big Games today in the final Night of the MBA season. But we could see the Lakers get a 16 or They could end up in the plane game and finished with an eight seed or even missing the playoffs entirely. I don't think that's gonna happen. I don't think anybody thinks that's gonna happen. But what does it say about seating? Meanwhile, the Brooklyn that's what they played eight games all year with their big three of Harden, Irving and Kevin Durant. But Howard back disagree, said this is kind of an anomaly year. We'll see. I think the NBA has a big issue going forward with needing to have their superstars not only available, but Play. I heard Kobe Bryant's wife, the late Kobe Bryant's wife yesterday, Vanessa She said at the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame that the difference when it came to Kobe is he didn't sit He had nagging injuries the whole second half of his career, and he did not sit. He played. No, it was a different era, even though it wasn't that long ago. But There was no load management for Kobe Bryant. He was going to play no matter what, And I think that speaks to his greatness and his impact on the NBA game. And it's why so many people looked up to him. And why yesterday was a celebrated day as he went in, along with Tim Duncan. And Kevin Durant. But that's not all there were honored yesterday. At that event. As I watched a lot of it. You add Rudy Tomjanovich, Tameka Catchings. Congratulations to them Also. Going in under the Curt Gowdy media ward. Mike Breen, who's now done 15 straight NBA finals. You know, they say You never want to be the guy to follow the guy. And he followed Marv Albert now. I always have a special place in my heart for Marv Albert. Somebody who spent a lot of time in Syracuse. So went to Syracuse. You could understand why I love Marv.

One of these things is not like the other. I feel bad. I ambushed Howard back moments ago on Jim Gray. Look, Jim Gray's been, you know, I guess a great broadcaster he's been around. He's done it all. But I'm sorry. Can't put the guy in When He was involved in one of the worst moments. In NBA history. He really was. What? You gonna put everybody involved in the malice in the palace in there, too? Gonna put? Ah, Kermit Washington and there. I mean, the list could go on. We gonna put all All the worst, the worst events people associated with the worst event. Even Miami fans have to admit that the decision was ill advised. LeBron James admitted it Maverick Carter Rich Paul. They've all admitted it. After the fact. One of the dark days in NBA history. And yes, I'm biased because I'm from Cleveland. But ask some other people around the league. It wasn't good. David Stern did not think it was good. People advising, LeBron said. Bad idea jeans.

I could tell you this. If you're going to stand up courtside. And you are going to have the full attention of a player and you're going to yell and shout at that player. You shouldn't be surprised. If you get kicked out. You should not be surprised. If you get the boot. You should not be surprised if you're told to go home.
