Amazon Alexa Gets New Voices, Including Actors Melissa McCarthy and Samuel L. Jackson
"This month. Alexa is going to sound a little bit. Different on july fifteenth the tech giant rolled out an update to its digital voice assistant to include a second voice option. As you know amazon's assistant typically has like a feminine sounding voice with this update. You can change that to a more masculine voice setting this all up his quite simple. You just say the assistant's name followed by quote. Change your voice and quote but that's not all there's an additional wake word you can use in place of alexa. That new word is ziggy Basically it works the same way instead of saying the primary name of amazon's digital assistant You can say ziggy instead. If you're a fan of gigi and you've never tried to swap out the wake word and you kind of want to try it out. Anyway you have some other choices to You can use amazon. You can use echo or you can use computer And the way to do this is really simple. Just like with the change. Your voice option. You can make a query to the assistant and say change the wake word to whatever you want Another way to do this too is open up the app for the voice assistant go to the menu. Select your settings than device settings. Then you go to the device that you want to update with this new wake word and then you choose the when you want and that's it now if you don't want either of these options for voices you can actually add a little bit of celebrity flare After introducing an option awhile. Back to add actor. Samuel jackson's voice to queries amazon is much similar offerings featuring actress melissa mccarthy an nba legend shaquille. O'neal so the way it works is you kind of ask them directly as you would amazon's digital assistance. You might say hey shack. Tell me about the weather. Hey samuel Tell me about the news today. And it works exactly the same way and they will read everything in
I've Hired Several Coaches, but No Improvements. What's Wrong With Me?
"Hey i've hired three business coaches. They've all felt like a waste of time and money. And i haven't seen any improvements what's going on. There's something wrong with me. My doing this wrong. what's happening. Well i want to answer this question to make sure i also address. Everybody was listening. That my have a similar question thinking about hiring a coach or have higher coach. Maybe didn't see the results are looking for on a star by saying i have gone through this several times. I've hired coaches have a lot of experience. And not all. My experiences with coaches have been the same. I i have to say a quick If you have a coach if you hire a coach and they give you instructions if they give you a action items to do a plan and you don't implement you actually do the work it doesn't matter. What kind of coach you have. You have to actually follow through. So i know this kind of obvious but a lot of people i've met along the way have hired coaches and ask them. How's it working out like not so great as it will. What does the coach advising you to do. All of they're telling me to do xyz. We'll have you done xyz and they're like a not really not sure. If i should and that really is the biggest red flag for me when it comes to hiring a coach. Don't go down the road of hiring a coach if you're don't a hundred percent trust this coach and believe what they say you should do is worth doing because the whole point of hiring coaches saying. Hey i'm allowing somebody else to advise me on how to move forward. And i'm willing to do what i need to do to make. It happen very similar in sports. You know one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time is phil jackson. He coached michael. Jordan scottie pippen but he also coached the lay kobe bryant shaquille o'neal a lotta great players but these players would not be great would not achieve their level of excellence if they didn't allow themselves to be coached if they allow themselves to follow through. And do what the coaches asking them to do.

Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?
"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.
SPACs: The Backwards IPO That's Taking Over Wall Street
"The hottest trend on wall street. This year is a spec. That's spelled s. p. a. c. constantly house backs backs best back frenzies. Back actions back is the new black former house speaker.

Npr's camilla Explained in an ipo or initial public offering. You start with a company that wants to go public and then investors toss a bunch of money at it. A spat or special purpose acquisition company kind of flips that around investors pool. Their money together. I with no idea what company they're investing in then. That pile of money goes out and looks for a company to merge with the company gets the money and the stock ticker with a lot less paperwork until recently this was not a well regarded way to go public. They have this sort of shady origin. Story right rodriguez is a professor at the university of georgia school of law. There are these blank check. Companies really had a bad reputation a lot of blank check. Companies were outright frauds. So the federal government. Crackdown suspects added more safeguards to the blank check model like investors can get their money back if they don't approve of the company that gets picked but they were still on the fringes of the financial world until now and probably done one or two huge back combinations a year for the last five years until this year and then i would say the of the market just exploded. Sarah morgan is a lawyer. With the firm. Vincent in elkins specs today over fifty percent of my practice this year. Why now well if you look past the bad reputation specs have some real advantages there. Faster than ipo's and have less uncertainty for founders. Both attractive during this really uncertain year. Austin russell is the ceo of luminary a company. That makes lighter. That's like radar but with lasers it's used in self driving vehicles. He founded the company as a teenager. Now he's got contracts with companies like volvo. It was time to go public and he saw the appeal of a spec. You've got the process end to end and in a like four months as opposed to having to spend huge time distraction for the better part of a year or two and he'd seen several well respected companies. Do it i. it's pretty cool. His spac merger earlier this month made him at twenty five forbes's youngest self made bilionaire. Today's specs have clear benefits for founders. Like russell who can go public with less paperwork they can also mean big bucks for the sponsors who organize them in fact sponsors make so much money if they close a deal that some critics worry. There's an incentive to merge with a mediocre company just to get that payday and that raises a big question whether this spac craze will be good for investors shiver drita says the risks are real because the flip side of making things easier for companies is inevitably that the risk of fraud to investors goes up. I don't know anyway to square that circle some of the sears specs have performed badly on the stock market and others have raised bigger concerns after zero emission truckmaker. Nikola went public through respect. It was accused of fraud which the company denies despite the skeptics the spectacular rise in specs shows no sign of fading away camilo domino npr news.
New Adam Sandler Halloween Movie on Netflix
"I, guess sort of mixed reactions in mixed recommendations from me but Brad let's move to you. What have you been watching? I watched another hitchcock remake Huby. Halloween. How many I saw the original but this one is a steep departure. From that. No. This is the new Adam Sandler movie that's on Netflix's Halloween themed obviously, and I went out of my way to watch it because some people including an article that we published on slash home dot com. I don't remember who who wrote it and forcing them. Sir Jacob can tell me here in a second, but they actually said that this movie was funny. And I just WANNA say? No, it's not. I I will say I did laugh a few times during this movie. There are some some funny recurring bits and just a few things that I was surprised just funny jokes that suddenly caught me off guard. But this is just another weird movie were Adam. Sandler puts on a goofy voice and this is one of the voices where you can barely understand what he's saying to because he's mumbling all the time. And it's just has such a weird story and it has these tangents that don't ask anything that don't make any sense like. Shaquille O'Neal's part in particular. Felt like it was super shoehorned. into the proceedings and then. You know you have Julie Garner's character who is yet another woman who is inexplicably infatuated with one sandler's dimwitted goofball characters and I just I don't know how or like. Adam. Sandler his point and like why he's been stuck here for so long 'cause I had also recently rewatch the wedding singer went to talked about in the quarantine stream and recently big daddy because I found out that my parents had never seen and I love both of those movies and they are genuinely hilarious not even just funny by. Adam Sandler movie standards. They're very good comedies and just movies like Cuba Halloween in Sandy Wexler which Steven Brill also directed there. So far, and away you know the kind of comedy that Adam Sandler used to be able to make used to have like characters that were fleshed out and felt real while also being funny and like not just these goofy characters and that's not to say that you can't have comedies that have outlandish characters in them. But whatever Adam Sandler is doing with these kinds

"shaquille oneal" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Maybe not everyone wants to see, and so it was just fun being able to learn about that whole process. George biddle here on the rich Eisen show just a few weeks ago I said that you know if there's such thing as winning the off season I I said. Your team. Did you know obviously the chiefs you know no offensive giving you run for your money by get mahomes under contract and their general manager. But you know your team got your general manager under contract and You had a great draft and obviously getting you under contract and Trent Williams to me was lost in the draft shuffle. What what is he looked like in practice? George Rich. I'll tell you this. I don't have to play very well, and when we played next to each other, it's still gonNA look really good. Ski Is like you know like you work on your double teams like doubling the defensive end to linebacker I don't know if he needs me to block both of them. No kidding. That's what's so cool. So I'm just I. Feel like I'm just like the icing on top when it comes to anytime I blocked with him. Really Cool. he makes my job easy as incredibly fast. He's just funny being hard to I just appreciate his knowledge and just how much like the game means them you get to see it every time he steps on the field, and so he's he's great in our locker room and I. I know it's GonNa be really fun to play them all year. What is it like being in a huddle in the COVID nineteen era? My friend what in the world is that like? well, I, mean, honestly thought that different, you know with the just getting in the facility with all the testing and all that like the regulations we keep now sixty per with our desks and you you're masks the whole day, and that's kind of weird. But you know when you're on the football field, you still to play football and no they they monitor us with trackers to see you know how close you are the people for like the duration of time which is interesting but you know be just feels good to be back in NFL hard. I will say that just is just like some real like it just feels normal and it's it's just fun to fill out again. Well, I mean you had one of your teammates at the forefront of conversations on behalf of the union with the League on everything in Richard Sherman and D do you altogether from Richard to the rest of your team feel like everything is being done to keep you guys safe. Are you are you cool with everything that's been laid out and is that you're going through right now as a professional George? I think what we're doing right now. I think regulations you know I can't speak for other teams. They know people are doing a different places but I think what we're doing right now is incredible Now, this testing like to get guys in building the amount of testing that takes them the how many days after clear they do such a great job at the distancing and we have really they've outfitted the entire. Facility No. For this I mean they've made it as normal as possible, which has been really fun and it's Kinda cool. 'cause they're using different parts of our facilities to so like we haven't meeting romance in our press box. Base, and it's just see how hard they work to make it safer us is it's really fun I. Mean it's incredible to see honestly just because of how much hard work went into it. So I do feel safe and a lot of the other guys just say, okay, does it give you a better appreciation of the press that how high up they stick the press to watch the games and they're able to do do their jobs and get a little better appreciation church for you. I might feel that I know honest I just sit back and I'm like, Hey, great view. So. It is. It's way out there man they put the press way up way up there. So I mean I'm obviously having a little fun with it but. I get tons of questions all the time what do I think? Do I think that there's going to be a football season? How is it going to work I get a ton of it you must as well I basically give the answer from what I'm hearing. You are living it. Do you think that the way that this is constructed and the plan that you think that there will be a week one through seventeen regular season in the NFL? George. I think it all depends on how seriously the teams and the players take it no, you gotta you gotTa kind of. Shut off some of the outside distractions you know more than you would in a normal season and it's GonNa definitely change the livelihoods of a lot of people in the NFL but you just I mean, I guess at the end of the day just had to be responsible and you know, hey, you wanna play football to get the follow. These rules can't ruin it for anyone else and I think if all the teams and all the players do that Oh hundred percent I think there's going to be season I know there's variables traveling and hotels and stuff like that. But the way that we've had it set up here is. Ben He gives me a lot of faith that it could actually get done. Yeah I. Mean. That's part of the answer I have very, very You chose your words very very well again, you're smart big ten guy so it's just that if everybody. When they go home stay safe however you want to. Describe that stay safe that obviously, there will be kids who may go to school or go out and vectors brought into the house and I, think the testing the way that the NFL is setting out might should catch it. Okay. They should be able to identify who might be symptomatic in that nature, but it is. Your some of your colleagues who might just decide to say screw it. I'm going to still have a social life and live my life in that manner. Have you had a conversation amongst the team about knocking off for the lack of better phrase George I think one of the best things that our team did Our head of player development our personnel guy been he..
"shaquille oneal" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Someone associated with a sports team, compact virus and dies. Like that's a hard thing to say that it's worth it that we can't put it off. The eligibility back. Look at clan either in the winter or scream or even looking to follow twenty one and Anthony let's. Have more. Answers. To believe a little bit paper. Full. For most people acting athletes but everybody associated. Operate with a little bit more certainty that. So, do you think David Shaw when it all? Comes out. In the fall football wash whenever that might be that the SEC and big twelve will eventually come to the same conclusion that your conference in the big ten have come to. I want it to happen one. Is there a chance that whether it's the board of directors? Dr Hoenlein who? Officer for AA. Said multiple. Times. The last couple of weeks once on your show. that. The pappy, extremely narrow. Extremely narrow football sports this year with the virus that continues to continues to rage on college campuses, repeatedly opening and Cleveland. A week. sending people away Corinthian and people. the path is extremely narrow so Either someone for director wise someone at the conference level look just says it's been operating at a high level doing really well the. Competition happening. Or, the continuing. And we still Miss Multiple Games. We still have young men and their family at some point in the season. Worth it where we're we're opting out and you'll have a disrupted and maybe some teams well. But of course in teams are going to have it looks like it's happened. Multiple Times this task. He might be doing for them. And a university or college team shut down. And you leave your. So that was a lot of. To. What kind of a season would we have if he did have either? Way Ten would be six. We play five. My eligibility would it be worth it? Those are those are questions that are really hard to answer on the front end of of the. Stanford University head football coach, David Shaw here on the rich Eisen show a couple more minutes on this topic. So, let's talk process. 'cause it. Sure sounds like my my football coach who you know well in Jim Harbaugh Ryan Day. James Franklin in the Big Ten obviously Scott Frost in Nebraska. Felt a little bit. blindsided by the big ten's decision. Did the PAC twelve reach out to you guys I'm in your positions and give you a heads up that apparently it seems like. The big ten did not with their football coach why are we not seeing essentially the same issues in PAC twelve That we're seeing in big ten country about the cancellation or postponement. First of all the guys that you mentioned I know very well, do just met this past year have a lot of respect for him. I believe you guys are doing it doing a great job and doing it the right way. all I can say what? What are conference? What's GonNa Working Group, and we met with the coaches each week. So the working might've vet two or three times a week we bought coaches in, give them up they everything week. So the coaches new the process they knew when it was looking good anyone looking at it many times. Dude one week up next week, we were able to communicate the ups and downs throughout this time, and there there wasn't suggesting that hit continue to keep your to be updated. Let them know where we are but not this we're excited about the possibility, but we're not sure we can get it done so. A lot of communication with our coaches and athletic directors and their director football operations. People really pretty much nonstop from about. April who bucket? And then I guess just pushing it forward What pathway do you see right now obviously in your answer that you just delivered coach. Shaw. With you say one week it look good and other one didn't. It's so difficult to predict. We have no earthly idea how the virus is gonNA play out. So what about winter I mean? We're already here in the big ten and Ryan Day. Along. With Justin, fields saying, let's play now is justin filled saying that? Talking about a a a Jan one start but let's try. Then how does that look? Do you? What's your idea pathway to that right now? Of all you said and nobody really knows I. think it would be great. I think we'd have to do with some common sense Later. We start the shorter, the season has to be my opinion. in order to not adversely affect the fall of twenty one. So as much as we all would want to play the reason why we had tendencies instead of a twelve game. Plan in January I think we need to trumpcare what do they just think about they to have a full season and have a national championship? because now you try to have a full season starting in January you're gonNA play until April May. and now how do you truly your guys back and ready? Training camp in August. let the hard question to answer our medical profession hathaway in there who got decades upon decades of. Data as far as what is for does to. Kim Party. we've gotta have a reasonable expectation to get our young people back by training Tampa Braga. So my perfect world if we can do this gift virus rates, if you find answers.
Does Influencer Marketing Work
"Does having your business or brand promoted by a celebrity by influencer by tastes meagre in your market really work does it do more than just awareness as actually convert into actual sales? That's what we get into in today's episode. The first thing on a mention is that influence their marketing has levels. Okay. Now, everybody is going to be able to afford to use Shaquille O'Neal's influencers or Kardashian or the rock for that matter. Okay. But for most businesses, you don't need these big celebrities. You don't need these big names will you actually need is somebody who has a following? The has an audience that would be perfect for your products and services somebody who's really need. But has raving fans, I'll give you some examples. Pat Flynn is considered a influencer in the blogging community, the online business community. The content marketing community converted is a email marketing service for creators for bloggers. So pat is a big deal in that space. So when PAT promotes converted, it's going to move a lot of business because. I actually love what he says love what he does and they'll do a he recommends. So if he promotes convert it to his email emails on instagram on a social profiles does a Webinar that's a perfect match for converted. They're actually GONNA make more sales from Pat Flynn whose only known in that community. Then let's say a B. Actor who's well known but maybe doesn't have the following in that space. There's a cycled CAMEO DOT COM. The has celebrities that are well known household names that are willing to give shout outs and some people even endorsed businesses. Now, this might look. Cool and seem nice and maybe ego boost for your business. But it's probably not gonNA move a lot of sales because Kevin from the office is really not the authority in your niche market is not somebody people really trust in terms of a recommendation it's kind of cool thing to have, but it's not really gonNA move sales. So I really want to impress upon you today is you wanna find celebrities in your niche in your market who are the people that have the biggest following who is the biggest name in your niche if you're in the swimming niche WHO's the biggest? Swimming coach that everybody knows about in your country if you're into snowboarding who is a big snowboarder that is on youtube though has a following that people watch. You don't have to go with the household names, but the names that are known in your niche are really powerful because they can really really influence their audience to buy your product. So how does this all work? Well, I recommend when it comes to an agreement with an influencer is do a combination of a guarantee minimum plus commission. This allows them to have some skin in the game and want to push your product and. Promote it and recommend it and use it and give a testimony. So something like this would be like You know you're gonNA share this on your email list you're going to do a Webinar with me and you're GonNa you know post this on your social profiles, three times in one week and We're GONNA pay you. Let's say ten thousand dollars. Now this is just a figure I just pull out of my head. This is something that you can negotiate. It also depends on the following but in addition to the ten thousand dollars you WanNa say, Hey, use an affiliate link. Here's the link and you're going to get twenty percents on all sales. Again the percentage pulled out of my head. You can come up with the number of that's right for your business. But the point here is that they get a combination of cash upfront for doing what they do or even still fifty, fifty, five, grand five grand. In this example, you know five star five after the WHO fills obligations, and then they get the ongoing commission for any sales they get. So they can continue to promote you beyond the minimum commitment and they become sort of a partner with you.
NBA teams kneel during national anthem as season restarts
"Night, the embassy isn't got underway. And of course, there was a lot of attention being brought to what would happen during the national anthem. There were two games last night, and everybody kneels every single player, every single coach, even the officials. They all take a knee for solidarity with the national anthem. So I was curious as to what the broadcasters of the game on TNT, Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley had to say, kind of surprising, actually, listen to Charles Barkley's response here. You're going to hear from shack first and then Charles Barkley type of God. They say you should do is you should do that. Everyone has their own platform. You know they're on their own brand. I'm proud of every one. And my thing is Listen. That's not the mean different things to different people. I'm glad these guys all unified where the people people don't kneel. You're not a bad person. I want to make that perfectly clear. I'm glad they had unity. But if we have a guy who doesn't want to kneel called the After me some to him, he should not be vilified. Listen

Where Michael Jordan's Coming From
"I do are you. I'm sad this is almost over. Are you sad? I am sad. Because I'm so happy that the powers powers-that-be be rust documentary so instead of coming out in June came on April gave us some content especially on Sunday night making popcorn. I'm warming up hot sake like I turned into a whole thing. Jalen rose played thirteen seasons in the NBA. And he's also the cohost Jalen and Jacoby last dance after show podcast first off. I'm like instead of doing two per night. We should have just did one night. We had in Sundays so now. I'm like maybe we need to Craig Hodges ever sell. He'd be happy about that. So yeah I'm a little sad. This Sunday is going to be the last one popcorn and sake an air yes indeed school on Moran Bacher so I haven't seen the last two episodes but I have a sense. Probably GonNa Start with a ninety eight Eastern Conference Finals Course Bowls Pacers Jalen. You're there how do you remember feeling about your team's chances headed into that series against Chicago? So the unique thing about an athlete is that you have to have something that I call a rational confidence. I've sat in the locker room multiple days of my life and said that I was better than Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant Shaquille O'Neal. Tim Duncan none of them could guard me. None of them had a chance. That's what you have to tell yourself or you might as well not put on shorts and the shoes and you know that you're the underdog and you're going against all time greatness so for us. We wanted to end the height. We wanted to shut up. All of the Jordan stands so on the floor. It was like we about the eliminate Mike in not have him. You know have two three peats but not on watching the doubt. I'm like how we let this do laying on the couch with potbelly drinking every night. Smoke CIGARS BEAT US. That's what I'm thinking. We should have beaten down more. May Be more bad news team like you're seeing that year. Your coach by Larry Bird who obviously knew Jordan very well from his playing days. What did he tell you guys about how to defend on him? Both you know one on one and as a team. What would he told me? Because I was coming off the bench I was a young pup. I had the plate. Percentages is that I'm GonNa put you on twenty three scorn you twice. I'm taking you out. That was instruction. And so I'm like all right cool I'm GonNa just follow him. I'm just thinking in my so I can stay in the game but he didn't want him to get into a rhythm is like soon he gets on away and if he gets into
Chicago - Michael Jordan Turned Down $100 Million Deal For Two-Hour Appearance, Agent Says
"Michael Jackson Jackson Michael Jordan excuse me once had a chance to make one hundred million dollars for not much more than two hours of work and he turned it down for sure you think that's a true story yeah one hundred million who okay well tell me okay so his agent said they're not being very specific but he said this is according to his agent and it's a quote all he had to do was other than giving his name and likeness make one two hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down god bless him he's been so successful it gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not do things he doesn't want he's very very selective in the things he wants to be involved in yeah I mean unless it was some like tawdry it get them more role deal for a hundred million dollars even if you didn't keep that money you could have changed other people's lives yeah but then you could you could argue that a whole bunch of wishes worth two point one billion dollars I credit him okay we're not taking it okay so he doesn't need it oh goodness no he is he has his own brand I mean the deal that he has the jump man logo with Nike he owns the what was the NBA team the Charlotte bobcats were real I mean this dude is he is doing fine I I think that's awesome that he would just I also want to find out the percentage under million to two billion are you gonna get some rice throwing out your rice I was but you know he's so protective the reason he is so loaded one of the main reasons is because of how protective he is band of Michael Jordan the brand is still like this ESPN documentary that's on right now is the most that we have heard from Michael Jordan ever ever ever yes he you never did you interview so you never see more like him more Fallon or anything like that he just lays so low he didn't get into the commentating business like Barkley did in like Shaquille o'neal did he is always just taken this this different route and there's been this this sort of like smokescreen around him which makes the entry so much more I mean he's been out of the league for twenty years and his shoes are still the hot issues that sell each and every year everybody wants a new pair of Jordan so if that hundred million if he felt it went against the brand that he had carefully curated for all these years hi Tony has nice enough money where he could be like now pass and don't forget is Hanes commercials yeah is he in the commercial I haven't seen one recently but I always remember he wasn't you know not too long ago yeah he was on a plane we have the Charlie Chaplin mustache and he was telling people about his aching neck member who suck but yeah yeah T. shirts in his underwear talk about underpaying planes yeah generally frowned upon death have not seen that one

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner secretly competes in rodeo events
"Arizona Diamondbacks left hander Madison Bumgarner has been competing in rodeo events under the alias Mason's Saunders and even one of twenty six thousand five hundred sixty dollars and a team roping competition in December according to a story published Sunday by the athletic Bumgardner was told I told the website that he has discreetly competed in rodeos for awhile including in March of last year two days before pitching for the San Francisco Giants in a cactus league spring training game he's been roping since he was fifteen or sixteen and said he's been added so long that quote it's just part of who you are he's the twenty fourteen World Series MVP if he agreed to an eighty five million dollar five year contract with the Diamondbacks this past December and I'm sorry Courtney if I was the diamond backs I wouldn't be thrilled to find out that my ace left hander yes competing in rodeos in the offseason this is the same guy who got injured on a dirt bike do not remember that when he was with the giants and that was a serious injury that put him out for a very long time no wonder he was performing I guess you want to call that under a pseudonym or a fake name because had you found out about this the Diamondbacks might not have spent eighty eighty five million dollar a gigantic sum over a five year contract on this guy I mean it doesn't make any sense like I understand the thrill of competition and this is who we is but these risky things every sport has stuff like this written into players contracts that you cannot do I mean I always go back to when it when he got hurt in San Francisco a few years ago do you remember the month Taylor's thing when he was with the warriors he fell off the scooter when he went back to Mississippi for the offseason S. lied about it yeah that was a story that came to mind and I feel like any time something like this it comes to the light I'm not one of these people is like all the cool funny look how cute of the story is I'm like what is he thinking like you get injured and made these you know these are animals eat these things have a mind of their own they're powerful they're strong and certainly he's you know well conditioned and knows how to be around horses but you know that to me is way too big of a risk if I'm a professional athlete you know the prime of my career to take but you know he's done it before and that he is you know we don't really get that much of outside having serious injuries at receiver big penalty from the team for you know the motorbike thing according to have the details how did he come up with the alias of Mason's Saunders instead of going with you know his own name Madison Bumgarner sell it this came from directly from the athletic article that broke the story said quote if you competed as Madison Bumgarner every phone camera in the area that would have been trained on him he said so he devised Mason Saunders the surname is the maiden name of his wife Allie Mason is a shortened version for Madison and it's something allegedly his wife called him out in public so people don't recognize them so very clever I'll give him that but I don't think the whole thing is a buzz saw her story totally bizarre and the other thing is you know if this was an NBA player everybody would recognize them already because NBA players are actually recognizable it just goes to show you how anonymous baseball players are that the most clutch postseason pitcher maybe of all time can compete in rodeos and nappy racket I think what I know it's wild lake in the in the fact is here like he continues to go what do these very risky things it just doesn't seem to care yeah if you get caught I mean there's the photo in that athletic article where he's smiling and you know he's with I guess that it's a two person thing that team roping so I hope twenty six thousand dollars I hope that Madison Bumgarner did not keep that for myself given the gigantic contract he just signed in December the but yeah he looks he's not there we is in this picture I mean I just think it's hilarious how almost incognito so many baseball players can live their lives in that matter just because they blend in because they're not these gigantic athletes by and large I mean they're not six eight or you know they don't think Shaquille o'neal out there everybody would be able to tell if you're you know for the most part with NBA athletes I just don't understand why when you have hit the genetic lottery anyway to be able to throw the ball a hundred miles an hour the end and to be able to make eighty six million dollars really it's more than that doing this why you would ever risk your body or put like what your fans in your organization is rooting for on the line so recklessly and you pointed out he already ruined the giants season aired my fantasy baseball season which is far more important Courtney by falling off of that dirt bike a couple years ago and here he is I guess he says I'm just going to live my life and Diamondbacks GM Mike Hazen told the athletic that quote he was not going to get into discussing specific contract language but you pointed this out that we know the player contracts have I can't imagine that the Diamondbacks are cool with their ace pitcher also being a rodeo road being a cowboy literally let alone they don't want to be a Dallas cowboy let alone in being a literal cowboy well I just remember a couple years ago at the end I felt combine whistle and was talking to Mike Zimmer about you know the quarterback situation at that point he had said that Sam Bradford had a degenerative knee I come to find out later that offseason I was speaking with Kyle Rudolph who said that he went skiing with Sam Bradford that off season right around the time of the combine so I'm thinking to myself you are here you are a health concern and you're going skiing or you could very easily risk tearing your ACL for a third time and you already had your season cut short because of injury like I wonder if these guys just do it for the thrill or maybe they just don't care because they have ungodly amounts of money to begin with if they feel like they can the kind of invincible they can do whatever they want but you do wonder like this has to be in contract language if you cannot do things like this because we know across sports there's certain things you're just not able to do I it's a liability reasons you ever been to a rodeo Courtney I half I went Mississippi when I work down there the show but county fair rodeo I've been to the Cheyenne frontier days shout out if you're listening in Cheyenne Wyoming on the ESPN radio affiliate there I gotta tell you it's oddly it is oddly entertaining but the the thrill of it is almost that you think that the that the ball right is just going to charge and block these cowboys into next year it is one of the most dangerous things I have ever seen and I never in my life once thought you know what it be cool to jump in there with these bowls and try to try this on for for my but how do you even practice you know you kind of just have to get in there and and take it on right yeah I guess I guess so what I mean I've seen the photos of Madison Bumgarner I'd taken the horse around the warning track at AT&T park when he was still a giant I just think that that's who he is this is got this guy is a country bumpkin at heart from North Carolina and I I just think that he grew up this way and it's always gonna be a part of him so he feels like Hey I'm an able bodied individual and I also have more money than anybody at this rodeo thing I'm gonna do what I want and it's somebody else take issue with it I'm sure they actually would found out about it right now well look I know why it's so good in the clutch in game seven of the World Series because if that that's nothing compared to facing down the eyes of a bull

An Interview with WWE Legend Kurt Angle
"Incredibly pleased society. We've got joining us. Who never quite expected? That's phones on silent everyone. I never expected that we would have on. Tko wwe wrestling legend. Kurt Angle first of all. Thank you so much for for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me on. And let's see you're over here with them. WWe promoting the new bt sport. Yes exclusively in the UK for the two thousand and twenty busy day few. Yeah we started early morning and we're GONNA go out tonight we just have like a a gathering at bt. Not and. I think it ends at eleven o'clock but we started early morning and this is normal for for sports entertainers. Yeah do a lot of media so going a huge wrestling fan on A. You didn't have sky in your house. Yes so I was like an a young kid by Cole I was Afam. wrassling bottom was on the subway channels and I didn't have sky the watch it as much as other guys. Yeah but I was obviously a world of high beg ables. Did you know when you first joined. Because obviously in these this day and age social media the Internet you know how truly global the companies and how far you're reaches but were you aware in in the late ninety s just how many people were watching worldwide now. I I didn't watch wrestling. I didn't grow up watching it. I start watching it it would. I started so when I saw the company late ninety eight. That's when I started watching I do WanNa come on those days. But he's okay. You got quite like to find Natalie about your amateur wrestling career because as a professional sportsman. That's something that you were known for his part of your. WWe character but actually that was a huge part of your career and your life you were in a family of rest is your brother's arrest sits right yeah had four brothers. They all wrestled. They were all very successful. I was the youngest. Didn't really like wrestling. The START WITH I. I like team sports. I didn't like it depending solely on me but the more I watched my brothers and growing up I start liking wrestling. I started getting better and eventually I got better than they were and then I became came the best of my family by win the Olympic medal. Yeah 'cause wrestling in America's be of a high school institution because we have it starts when you're serve in elementary school visit. Almost every school has a program right so junior high high school college. It's very big over there. So it's it's part of our culture because a lot of people call for boxing to be put into schools as part of the curric- it used to be in the schools and there's a call for it become back and installs obviously a lot of discipline and everything else and you see the the problems that society has these with Nayef Cram and gang culture and everything else. I think. Think that programs like that rather than in the states and boxing programs and the stats are in the UK. Only going to help us. What point did you? What age did you think this could really be serious for me as a career I would say around thirteen fourteen? I started having a lot more success and got to the high school level and I lost success there and it just carried over to college and I didn't really. Oh you think about Olympics. When I was younger I just thought about that season and if I could win the championship that year and every year I continue to win which Olympic I'm big city one nine hundred ninety six Atlanta Atlanta well? Is that your proudest moment. Out of everything you've done in your career. Olympic gold medal surpasses says anything. Yeah it was You know even bigger than anything. I've accomplishing wwe. Yeah Yeah Imagine. That was a kind of Golden Olympics for the US esteem cousteau was the homeland picked. Michael Johnson it like the basketball team is Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal came one. Those guys Gail Devers. Even Andre Agassi won the tennis and we're legends in that team. What was it like to be off in the Olympic Village? Seeing those people it was pretty cool. You know you knew it was special when you went to opening ceremonies and you saw the athletes there and the guys you mentioned they were the guys and girls that were participating that were already professionals professionals and they made it you know viable for pros to end up competing in the Olympics and so you saw basketball and tennis. Ns and now even golf. So the the pros are going and winning medals as well now so those of it because one of the things the Olympics exp boxing is one of the only sports where there is a kind of. There's another trajectory and other policy if you win a medal for of sports certainly minority sports. That aren't necessarily a lot of TV coverage the Olympic medal can often be the kind of end of the road. There isn't anywhere else. I speak to go resting very well. Be One of those is and and so for you that amazing so the question I was going to ask you without. FMA How to beg then as it was Ni- would you have took that pop rather than the wwe without a doubt. Yeah wow it wasn't at that point. UFC struggling they offered me a ten fight. Deal for one hundred fifty grand and that was our biggest contract they ever offered. This was in ninety seven and then sound very good to me so I decided decide to go pro wrestling and by two thousand one two thousand and two you have see was kicking in high gear but I was already drawn in and a pro wrestling scene. So how how did the what was the chain of events that let you to the door of of the W W well in one thousand nine hundred sixty minutes man offer me a contract. I flew up to meet with them and I wasn't interested. I had a lot of people. Tell me you know you grew up. You never watched the Fake what you did was real a lot of my peers. Were telling me don't do it. So my agent through the contract the way and I'd say in one thousand nine hundred star watching Watching stone. Don't go Steve Austin the Rock and however flannel. They weren't how entertaining they were. I thought man I could do this. I think it'd be a lot of fun and you have see at the time. Time wasn't going anywhere so I went with a wwe. What was the the early memories? Because I imagine wrestling's one of the toughest sports there is a is a amateur wrestling but of red. If in a few places that is a pro wrestling were were incredibly tough. What were your first memories of some of the first lessons and training training sessions? You did all the first day. When I started training I quit? I took three bumps and my neck the pain I was getting my neck and back it was like this isn't normal. You don't it's like self abuse and you know we bump on plywood. It's a lot like this and There's no spring underneath It is self mutilation. You're you're basically beating that crap on yourself because you're allowing. I mean people were throwing around and take your head off with a clothesline and the object. You're bumping on his plywood so it was very abusive in the first day. I I didn't like it and I decided to hang in there. I came back the next day and I continued on. I got used to bumping and and used the pain so eventually didn't bother me as much but I'm paying for it. Now see a leg generation before ours. My Dad's generation. They would not really look favorably upon the tablet Ali. But what these guys do is take some serious stick their body. There's some serious injuries and stuff. It's you know your two weight world champion. And you've taken many punches to the head and body is is anyone WanNa taking a lifetime. What is what is pain to you guys? How do you manage pain? Do you ever get used to it as ever become less painful or do you just become used to living in that place. It's something you get used to. And as a young boxer I think Jimmy Moore. My trainer is spoke about this and said that you can tell from a very young age or someone hazard or not and it's normally a kids barn and if they take a punch annoys on they don't cry and they punch back it's like you can't make the Paean it's like I don't know what obviously adrenaline carries you through a lot of it but it's not like a real specific. If you punch me in the arm Ni- I would feel feel more pain than actually punching ahead fate strange sensation. It's not nice but it's very very hard up. Manassas gray but law detainees. I've not been able describe pain amateur wrestling pro wrestling. What are the worst kind of pain that you can describe? And how do you deal with those. I think the worst pain I had and I still have it now as an amateur wrestling right before the Olympics I got thrown on my head and I broke my neck and I didn't know it. I kept wrestling again that day. I ended up winning the US Open and that put me in a good position to make the Olympic team for the Olympic. Trials made me the top guy so I didn't have the Russell the mini tournament Face the winner of the mini tournament. I was the guy that the mini tournament faced. So Oh i I I couldn't get passed by any doctor doctor. Wood Passer would allow me to wrestle so I eventually found a doctor and and he said the only thing you can do. You can't train you just would just stick in a neck with Nova game and you won't feel the pain. And he was right every match. I had at the trials and the Olympics. I got twelve shots. Novacaine the back of my neck couldn't feel it for about an hour and Russell and then an hour later I'd be in a lot of pain. You won the Olympic Games uh-huh with a broken neck that's insane quotes and wwe also. Yeah yeah I broke both my hands. The last vote doesn't ideal and it wasn't wasn't nice but it's hard to imagine when the pinnacle of Your Sport Olympic Games to be competing against the top guys in the world with a broken neck does that. I can't imagine boxing. We're broken hand. We are called you a few weeks ago and you said this is the most pain I think I've ever been in the radon especially she'll have a little bit of bone removed from the right time but there there was a a tendon that had ripped and it needed stitch together without that Han was give me more than than the left hand which has seven unscrews and appropriate and at night. He's but just because it had to have some work done the Tandon It was It wasn't wasn't nice. I WanNa ask you a question. Did you know ahead had a time that you're gonNA be suffering after your career from the injuries. Would you go back and when you do it all over again I we do it all over again because obviously enjoyed every bit of my career. I've been very successful more successful than I probably would have imagined. I've been lucky enough that my injuries alot. My last night I broke Mahan but previous my husband really suffered injuries but I would one hundred percent hop gum heart do it all over again. What about you? I don't know I mean I'm I'm hurting pretty badly my knees my back my neck. Sometimes I think about you know what when I go back my quality of life right now socks so I do have a lot of suffering. I had a painkiller addiction overcame about six years ago and you know stay clean and struggle. In the way I have been very difficult. was there a lot of pressure even when you had injuries week in week out to go and perform Tom. Did you ever feel that. You couldn't say no part of the problem no I I. Nobody ever forced me to do anything. There are a lot of times. I had a a great doctor that you gave me off had three neck surgeries and he was very easy to manipulate. So you know when I broke my neck and I had surgery I would talk him into clear Amina go back early and At the time he didn't have their wellness policy L. A. C. set where they had their doctor clear. You we go to our own doctor and I was able to do that a couple of times where I should have. I've been back and I did so I broke my neck four more times and WWF and It caused me to go into a downward spiral painkiller. Alert addiction in just almost room my life so it was. It was very difficult. Can I just say you have one of the strongest biggest looking knocks. Have you seen as well. Yeah Rick out again. Yeah wow so. How many times are you performing when when you when you arrested him? Mm to twice a week. You'll be performing five days a week. You for forming five

I love that story with penberthy who's the shooting coach for the lakers now need. He just said you know when i i always ask easy. What's your favorite jordan store your favorite shack story if they played with the lakers or against him and penberthy goes. Oh yeah my rookie year. I'm walking to practice. Shack drives up rolls down his window. No teammate of mine walks to practice and penberthy didn't have a car. He threw at wanna cash and he and i said to penberthy unbirthday. I said you know how how much he goes well. He was heavy. I said like five thousand he goes. No no is really heavy ten thousand dollars that he gave them to go buy a car. I i love that story. We've got our. I didn't want to ask shack who he would take shocker. Kobe so mclovin you want to give us an update on the poll results okay if you could build a team around shack a kobe by we did not put in the year of the sport pulling up results just their prime right now. I mean what kind of europe basketball present check. Oh if it's if it's back in the nineties right went into more of a center league so that's a tough question yeah because now kobe you could make a case for kobe either era but certainly now although kobe wasn't a three point shooter. I don't know how much he shot knowing him. Yes yes he would add that. It's like how many bird take a game three. Maybe now bird would i'd bird shoot fifteen threes a no reggie miller reg would be shooting. How many threes yeah paulie. I has of his career. Larry bird averaged one. Three pointer attempted per game. The most he ever averaged was his last healthy season the average three point three three three-point attempts per game yeah because it wasn't considered a weapon. He weird thing though he hit one hundred percent of them in his career never missed. Oh yeah and jordan gordon never missed. A game winning shot either not that we could find. I wonder how many game winning attempts he had an how successful jordan was because you get the feeling that jordan made every single bigshot that he was supposed to make robert ory is the one who's got the better percentage. I'm gonna guess the infamous robert ory bigshot bomb but whatever jordan never missed a game when you know when lebron would be missing these game winning shots. You'd always have these jordan apologised allergist go. <hes> jordan never missed game winning shot like yeah. I probably did probably did a couple yeah poem. Michael jordan is a commercial where he said i've missed. I've taken the last shot and games twenty six times where i missed. I going to get the actual staff in a commercial. He said that just so humble is always just so humble all right. We'll take a break. Adam schefter from the mothership will join us coming up go behind the scenes of the andrew luck story. How big was that story to shefty eighty and did he believe it when he first got whatever information he got unless it's hey adam. This is jimmer. Say i just want to give you a heads up andrew alexa going to retire and <hes> we'll probably have a press conference as soon as you announce it yaupon even his jim irsay. Would you still want a second source on a story or this monstrous. I mean that's close to andrew luck but i i'm gonna guess is as long as you know that it's jimmer say right right but but even then you have to pause where you go i mean could i get duped. I mean there are people out there that try to do these insiders all all the time is that where because i'm so skeptical you go back to when we thought we had bartman on when i was hosting sportscenter and it turned out to be you know somebody from the howard stern show and you know just asking a question like a safe question or that question that you you have to have only you will know this answer and then you go okay because if i would have said to bartman which i talked to him prior to going back on sportscenter we did the first segment i fifteen minutes went to break and then my producer got my ear and said we've got bartman on the phone and then i started chatting with him for about out thirty seconds. Maybe forty seconds and i wanted to ask him a ballot notre dame. I believe he went for some reason. Notre dame came into my head and and i was gonna just casually talking to him and then i after we're all done and i got duped. I thought gosh i should have just said. Tell me about how your alma mater is going to do. In football that was the first thing that came to mind is then i i would have known if you know the guy who was the guy from the howard stern show show polling captain jenks captain jack was a big researcher he would research things about people so he may have had the answer he might have and i still would have gotten duped but <hes> <hes> that was one of those where you went live t._v.

Dan how are you doing. We're doing great. I want you to walk me through the call that if it was a call or text with andrew lock but but i was curious prior to that phone call or tweet whatever we're tax whatever it was. Did you have any indication about andrew. Luck's immediate future with the colt. Well let me just say this. Damn basically <hes> as i've said to a couple of the people best sure stories that you work on for days or weeks that that require a lot of kohl's and a lot of time and a lot of energy and some of them come together and some of them don't and then there are other stories that are fast moving stories that just come together the quickly. This was one of those that came together quickly for variety of reasons since it wasn't like on last monday i had a premonition that angela angela could be retiring that he was having the actual talks that he was with the members of the culture organization this all kind of came together quickly and caught me off gordon everybody else. Was there any thought to not breaking it during the game. I don't understand that i really don't. I look look you. Did it and you're supposed to that your job but i'm just curious if you thought about that. He's there and all of a sudden this. This doesn't become a football game aim anymore then number one. I'm at a surprise birthday. Dinner surprised seventy fifth birthday dinner for my mother-in-law. I apologize for not tracking where when when when the information's coming into make yeah that's number one number two as you mentioned. That is my job. When i get news number three. There have been any number of stories that i've sat on over the years. I you know somebody's asking me to wait. Can you wait till i notify the player of this trade or the coach knows he's being fired or higher or whatever it may be before you report and you know listen. Every circumstance is different. You manage these relationships the best you can while maintaining the integrity the job and doing your job. Did you wonder about that that you were getting this information when you got it from your source that why were they giving it to you at that point. No i look. I got the information <hes> i. I never stopped to think think boy i. I wonder what part of the game they're in. I wonder if this would be disruptive. I wondered how gonna get confirmed. Am i gonna give people a heads adds up which i did. I called a couple of different people within the colts organization to let them know that i'm going to be reporting the story. Nobody picked up. Nobody got back to me somebody to call me back and said hey you know we're we're in whatever part of the game we're in. Would you mind waiting thirty th nobody did that. <hes> and i reported lord it when i feel comfortable with the information which i do a hundred times out of a hundred over again i and again then the owner g._m. And head coach culture organization new last week andrew last week yeah andrew toll teammates on thursday andrew to- teammates on friday. They discussed as an organization having the press conference on friday or sunday at three. I don't know why they waited to push it off to sunday at three but they did that was their decision decision and again. This is a sad story and it's unfortunate for andrew for the coach for the city of indianapolis for football in general. He's unbelievable player. Nobody wants to leave the the game but when there are that many people who know frankly. I am shocked that it didn't get out sooner. Yeah i am too when you start to hear that. Somebody's telling somebody somebody who then is going to tell somebody and hey don't tell anybody but and the correct yeah and so when eventually some of that makes its way to me. Do you really think i'm sort of saying well. What will i know this is big and there's gonna surprise people. I notice fantasy football draft going on across the country free right. Now and people are drafting and i know that there's a game but i'm just gonna wait for adam. Schefter schefter from the mothership joining us is their language if he turns in his retirement papers then then if he decides to come back what is the process for andrew luck. That's a great question. I it will come up. <hes> look to coach. Put him on the reserve or tireless. He's there right yeah. They have his rights <hes> if he wanted to play. I guess they could remove him from that list and the contract would come back into existence though they negotiated that settlement <hes> where where he got to keep the twenty eight point four million dollars that was paid to him in the form of bonus money <hes> twelve million dollars in march and so i don't not the exact process other than the first key step would obviously be andrew having to decide that i do wanna play again and of course that conversation will come up just this is it came up for berry sandra's just as it came up for calvin johnson. We know.
"shaquille oneal" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"And then after that while he's the greatest ame- like Willie new hotel. Call the shot down because you know, the guy from, you know, five confines, they were celebrating drink and will just have watched this. They watch what watch Tom go like looking at time looking face Mazowe. Greg Papa visual field Jackson. They never panic and coast Bill checkers that way either twenty eight seven down twenty eight point whatever up twenty same face, never panics. And that's why. I think he's a great Tom break Tom Brady. And then I mean, then there's the conversation about Jordan LeBron who would you take their hukum? Kobe has never bro. I'm just asking. All right. All right. I'm just asking. You know? That's a good point. I think it's gonna disrespectful. Yes. By the way, you and Kobe being simpatico is a great thing. I don't know what some Pado means. But it sounds. Brother vanity related. The and you know on the same page big words. Friendly. I mean, you only over us tonight. Hey, Charles, would you like to be impartial? Yes. One hundred percent leased do the pot Akot. Wow. Yes. Potty go your tight tight on forty seven years old. I never heard that word my life is that right? Symbolic. Oh, please use that drop that on Charles tonight. If he says, something you agree with Charles worse Apoteker on that. It's what you say on the test. What have some pot Akot? Oh, yeah. Part of a symphony perfect. Yes. All right. So Kobe LeBron a might Mike. Is this a sports talk? I'm not I'm not I'm not in that category. No, I'm not crazy about I never wanted to be the best. I wanted to be the most dominant that worked like I I worked hard enough to be dominant. I didn't work hard enough to be the best. Like, I never knows like Jordan Kobe and LeBron they got to do things. I could do I wanted to be a force in the middle that people were afraid of. So I don't get offended when people do not put my name in that category. That's not what I was looking for. Okay. So the three if you had to choose one is the greatest of all time, I don't like shoes. 'cause I know all the guys, but for me see Mike do some things never seen either. The guys do what that Mike use USA tell opponents when he was going to do and how and how he was gonna do it. I know the way he did he just you know, he wasn't. He wants six when outta dominant big man. Right. And you know, he he wants left took. Ear off play golf play baseball came back and won three more. So I mean, he was just got that. I grew up watching so shark. Nah, I play with Kobe and play with the bomb. But if I had to pick the Grizz world molotov favor has always been Dr J. So, you know, doctor Jay and guys like magic, Mike, Mike made a great point. He said is kinda disrespectful to say on the go because you get about the ones that, you know, play before cutter, I'm kind of on that same process. So I will and Bill Russell and guys like that. I'm just happy you mentioned in the same name you deserve down before. I let you go. Are you an investor in the alliance of American football shore football football doesn't stop out this weekend starts back up in February eight teams for hundred players eight games to watch lawyers coaching got the ball coach on the sideline their new highs.
