"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A.

Unfamiliar with with this never heard of the cartoon. Yes. He's a big Popeye cartoon guy. Man. Yeah. That was no faith in the mcman asking about Jimmy Butler. Why didn't know if it was a like an early question like setting up, so. And it was on the agenda. I just didn't know if it had been addressed pretty much started with Minnesota. And then went right into that. By Jimmy Boyle, yelling at people pretty much. And I mean his credit. He's got that that answer on like down packs. He said the exact same thing to me that he said you pretty good. But yeah, no. I always I was liked that whole Florida team..

So you waiting for like March when or not much, but like February when people usually make deals are you ready to go like right now. I'm ready to go right now. They are ready to call like. Do you see Vince Carter out there? And you're like come on, man. I could d him. What's going on here? Yes. Twice. My. That's all the guy like that. There's no disrespect. It's just terribly old is all I'm saying. Playing starting to of games. Get it done. He's still putting like young guys on posters. That's gonna be. You gotta go back there. All young. That's true. Yeah. That's a fair point anybody. Good. I need to see him in dark like meet at the rim. One of these games though. It'd be just an all time moment. That'd be funny. Heavy. Darting who you think on top gory. Those two mid at the room. Jumping. So of course, it's going to be best. He's done. Megabank where dark dark these past couple of years. I've been a couple of times he's trying to dunk after the whistle. And it's just now magazine. So what are you doing? You've done enough. You don't have to do this. Excuse, you know. That's it. You think do you think he could touch the net. Like right now. If he if he stretches. A good breakfast. You gotta strange good day. Good night's sleep. Yeah. Yes. In our sleep. So you I again, this might be not true. I have just quotes in front of me. What's you you? Missed a close shot at the rim. You told Mike dantonio got to the basket. But then I ran out of talent. Is that a real quote? I made a great move. But you know. Always always somebody makes it go move into the room where they end up making a plate and throw it out of bounds. And. Added might take that was he just like. Yeah. What can you do it back on? He's laughing might do. We had agree relationships. You used that last? Good San rather him just sending you to the locker room. You're out of here. Brewers later it beat it. That's my man. Played for a couple like very notable. All right. So was was Luke Walton there in LA when you applying Lou, okay? What do you think about him because I know last year there was there's some people being like is this guy the right guy for what they're trying to build? What were your impressions of him as a head coach? I ain't even be good coach it's hard when I was there because it's one of those things but not really trying to win. Those really hard to. Yeah. That's fair. That's very, but I'm coast for sure after no. But it didn't go stating. See they're doing really good this year. Yeah. Yeah. Getting LeBron James helps, but yeah, I I do agree. I think he's a code. I think it was a good move them edge. I'll say, yeah. This'll help. Little is fine. We're gonna have some of the players as of late like just the entire I'm curious, and maybe I'll touched on it just like the the entire Jimmy Butler saga. Yeah. We guys figured. You answer it again. Caller, never gonna hear this backward. It's a tough situation. But like I said, we don't really know what went on in the locker room. So it's hard to base my judgment. Jimmy guy. He'll guys accountable. So no, some guys some guys can't. All right. So I wanna I wanna end on this. When you were at Florida was it really really annoying that Tim tebow was getting all your guys like hype. Or was it like he can take the spotlight, and we'll just go do our own thing over here. And no one will even notice it wasn't like. Oh, yeah. People who. He had. Oh, okay. Well, I when I left the next year had height, we left went to the drive, of course, people you had to own as game and never lose. Great. But there we felt like we went back to back. Okay. Okay. What have any classes with Aaron Hernandez? What are you doing? No. School. Didn't relegate everywhere. Real nervous energy when you're around them. All..

What's your first question? You have no idea what we've talked about. We've been talking badly about you all the time. Okay. Again, fine with that. So politics core. Your thoughts. Don't answer it. I do have a question though. I just want to how was it playing. Maybe this was already discussed. How is it playing for Donovan in college? And then like years later someone much much richer than him. Like these words still have the same merit. It was great for me because I love women college. When I got to Oklahoma City, you've got place on I feel like I was in college though. Yeah. Like, he was like, listen, everything say, so. It. It was a man is like just goes down. I mean, I seventeen again. I always thought about that. Like when they say, these college coaches, and they want to coach the guys that used to play for them. Like is it the same being eighteen nineteen hundred vers twenty seven twenty eight and also multi multimillionaire depends on much respect respect. You got so much better. Because I guess if guys their coach probably be a big adjustment. But me, I feel like I was reading on. True. So go back to slandering meaning. Yeah, no this guy. So since you are well traveled throughout the league. I wanna know like who which city has the best food and Corey brewer opinion. The best food a lot of good food every way strong agree. Orleans food if you go to right places, Houston, I live. Houston has barbecues a lot of period. So those cities I'm from the south. So I like eating southern food. All right. So which which area has the best music. Best music. LA has visions. A good music out there, but I'm from the south. So I listen to a lot of down south route. And that all right. The which area has the best women. So so where did you find it? Answer. Vote right now, she had me ask that that was she planted that question here. So here's here's a here's a list. I'm sure, you know, you're part of Michael Jordan. Alan iverson. Rick Barry, Corey brewer only players in NBA history with fifty points and six steals in one game. When you hear stuff like that? How crazy is that? Great player. At the time when you like got the fifty points, but I do need that six still gonna be contest Jordan, Barry and those guys. Oh, anything about it. At the time.

"Every single play is put under a microscope, but spits shared on social media. It's everything you didn't have to deal with it on that level. Like when you came into the league, it was just like a few years away from really starting even. Yeah. For sure now like socially taking over. So everything is like blown out of proportion any little thing. So you gotta be able to manage it. I think he's doing a good job 'cause up with all the Kirsten's getting I think you're gonna jog trying to manage. He's working his way back and better basketball player. Now, let's let's take it back to Florida because that's that has to be well, first of all, do you think something like that could ever happen again in college basketball? It's all about the bond. You have with your teammates. I think the bond we had special. We are really cared about each other. We play for flu. We wanted to be Gators. That's what is all about. Why how did how did you guys convince one another to not go to the league after your freshman year? 'cause you all would have been lottery pictures like you were anyways. So much fun things. We had to convince each other anything Finally, have. we were we were like really all best friends. We all live together. The time we won't campus just they want. And we all connected. It It was was like like. we realized that once he goes to the NBA, it's different. It's a job now. It's all about it's a business college. You have a fun. You're enjoying each other campus of the fans great. Was it a big adjustment for you going from college to the NBA when you weren't wearing like a three XL tall t under your jersey. Jeff. The weather was on man. Yeah. I tried. You didn't have the long sleeves on. Staff. And system I went for planning the fast basis slowdown in the post. It was It was tough. tough. So I'm from Boston. I don't know if you can tell from my horrible accent yet. But. I'll Horford obviously, huge huge part of our team biggest free agent. We've ever seen side. There's still Celtics fans who don't get it with him. They don't think he's worth the money. They don't think he's that good. Can you please explain to these idiots? What makes Al Horford special? Our for is the most low maintenance. Are you could ever have chain? But he also gives you so much that people like the normal fans not gonna see the glamour, you're not gonna give you fifty or sixty points. But every night it gives you all he has his numbers. It may be eighteen PM and five but those eighteen five Hester win. And he's he's a winner, man. And defensely talks he knows he can switch on smaller guys. He's does all the little things and people don't like if you're real basketball. You really watch both of you would love to have again, why is it? 'cause I love Al Horford ba-. Why is it Tristan?

"Welcome everyone mixed. We are here with a very well traveled NCWA champion, Mr. Corey brewer himself. How you doing today pal? Good. Thanks. Right off the top, my producer. Obviously. I know who you I've been watching you since you were at Florida, and we'll get to that. But he he gets together a list of notes for us. You have someone in your family's history. Who is eight foot nine. Suppose. Says I guess that's the myth. Listen, your mother's. Never lied to me before. I don't I don't think she's gonna start today. So that's what they say. He was like one of. I mean, that's absurd says. Used to get move around by being in a cart pulled by goats. I mean, that's a flex. It's crazy stories throwing up. But I just thought they were still let's be true. Now, you gotta run with those who cares whether or not eighteen eighty two no one's going to be able to prove it one way or the other just run with it. Could've been nine five. Because what you like your like six seven six eight. Yeah. Okay. Okay. I don't wanna take that information. You are. Is anyone else? Nine. Why why is it that? No one in the NBA is listed by their actual height. We wear shoes. Well, I know that but even still like like Durant. He says he's like six eight these that that dude's at least seven one seven He's. one. Talking point. So whatever the last thing you measured if so you are, but even like, even like K G he used to list himself at six eleven because he didn't want to be a seven footer because he didn't want to be a center, and it's says like dude he can play whatever position you want your Kevin fucking Garnett. I think back then. Put your. Who is? Who is going to tell him where he was gonna play. Nobody. All right. So you you started a Minnesota. Yeah. I started Minnesota my first three and a half use. I went back for you and a half. So when you were watching Jimmy Butler Tayo through that locker room this year, what was going through your mind. How would you have handled that if some like that was happening in Corey brewer locker room? Out someone personally. But I really can't you can't comment on. 'cause I don't know what the whole story. It's everybody's making comments about everybody saying they're saying that none of us really know, you're not really. No, no, no. And I wish I would because everything that everyone is saying sounds real salacious in the kind of stuff. I I love. But I don't know like he he gets traded. And all of a sudden like towns Wiggins, look like, they're they're much more free and just enjoying basketball again. It's and then again Phillies to in one since he got there. So I don't I don't know what happened. Yeah. I think it's, you know, even those guys guys accountable. So some guys some guys can't. But nothing once you get you know, like. Together to win. Right. God guys guys over there. It's never good. So I think it worked for both sides. Jimmy's daily. I think they really like those guys know they wanna be good. So I think they can take they can take the criticism, you know, impede very outspoken and really good. So I think it's good for him. Minnesota towns you wanted to be the main is so. Do you think he's good for like like a false though? Or is that just like we'll wait and see that's the way. See I don't know what type of kids poses. So I can't really say I just I think folks can be really good thing right now right now his thing is he got he got it gives light mentally clear. Everything has to be clear play basketball 'cause everybody makes a big deal by anything. He does literally just has the play basketball. Goes back to spend a basketball player. I think about all this other stuff. I think he's good. He's only young. Oh, yeah. Yeah. He was he was the youngest player in his draft. So he's still while youngest players in the league by like a lot. So I think for him I kiss special. I think it's all about him clearing his mind. And it's been a basketball player. Not listening all outside of directions, especially in a day like today where it's it's every single day..

And I I have taken have taken. But what he's end up getting the results that he wanted and being in Philadelphia. We got they have a new general manager Elton brand, which is putting all the pieces together, they gotta be formidable. But you're. And the pistons don't forget this.

I know he wants to get out into threes. But you know, I I like that team. Yeah. Yeah. Casey is as the coach he's putting it all the pieces together. I thought when they beat Toronto. They win the championship. Bad joke. Got laughed all around here. Oh, man. Yeah. I've been very this. Other thing has been I said I'd give them till about Christmas. Give them a couple of months to to get acclimated. It has been. I mean these last two seasons has been so much roster turnover than what the injuries trying to get everyone back. We've got guys on the bench. You think they should be started? Well, that's what I'm talking about. You know, because they did really well when Kerry was out and now he's back. Now, he's he is I think you got Steph curry, and then you have car read the two best cars. Well, Chris fall. Fall crystal seems hard and and. Whisper. He's a handful. I love him. Yeah. Yeah.

And now that the the board selected me as chairman, and then we took our another giant step in because a lot of the players and players that are coming into the retired players association. They see me as this guy that took a stand way back in nineteen seventy that this case went all the way to the supreme court that. Provided opportunities for a number of players out of the four hundred in eighty players in the NBA. I would think by four hundred sixty nine of them today is on the my rule, which is would versus the NBA the Spencer Haywood rule, but they call it one and done all these Spencer. Yeah. It's about time. That's the one thing. I gotta talk to Chris Paul about because he's. And yet they have to make that. Right. You know? So there's a living guys that were not part of the Yukon. But you don't really mention them for them at all. Who's that? I it was like four hundred sixty nine thousand four hundred eighty under the Spencer Haywood rule two guys that are under like, we don't really talk about that. Well, I don't I don't care about. Jokin? I'm chuck. Players. You heard it. And you know, those guys always hit me up to your like gale, we have been for sure to you always talk about the guys that left early.

Please scare to hear the floor is literally okay. In one thousand nine hundred seventy two. Phil Knight was looking for a player to represent Nike. Because he hadn't set up his corporation yet. And so he he came to Seattle and said that he spends what you do a poster for me, and we'll give you some stock. And so I did the poster and and did all of the things that I was supposed to van and a hat stock the company pretty good nice start my agent couldn't figure out how to get his percentage out of it is Commissioner. He's so much spark. So when I dollars. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No I've lost billion. So no. So when I see Phil Knight and all of the Nike boys in Jordan is to say, he's brought me out to dinner, and I'm like sitting, you know, me and Magritte kicking it. But he like you must be the dumbest to ever. Why would you do that with your stock? So LeBron and all the guys that's that's that is their conversation.

"I mean and Spencer Haywood Spencer Haywood was one of those. Larry Brown, hey, woods, Spencer Haywood stories about Adolph Rupp are not going to win him any friends in Kentucky. Well, it's a lot of stories about rate off Adolph Rupp probably met revere it off rope anymore. Do they still have the after they have the coordinator for him still rather arena that should probably not be. So that brings us back to John. This is going to be an unpopular in Kentucky this that'll bring us back to John mcclendon. So Adolf rob, there was plenty of evidence that he was a racist. I mean, there was he was, you know, they were. Pete was quoted calling at. Of the Texas western games. Don't let these coons beat you all sorts of things. And one of the things that I found fascinating was a guy named Ben job who had played for mcclendon went to visit him and he walked into mclennan's office and the there was a white guy and McLennan with his back to mcclendon said, hey, I'm busy. Come back in a little while. And so Ben, Joe Wade, and our came back and whoever the white dude was was gone bend. Jobs said, who was that? McLennan said, now you can never speak of this to anyone that was Adolph Rupp that was Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp. I was helping them out with some basketball strategy, but he doesn't want anyone to know that an African American coach was helping him. Now, this is a guy who was a known racist yet. He's he's going to McLennan for help. So two things on the race topic and just sort of bringing back maybe disenfranchised or or not appropriate, remembered people. The name Cleo hill is one of these footnotes inside any hardcore basketball fans brain. If. That right? And he played one season in the NBA. He was a star at Winston, Salem state under big house Gaines and you have Billy Packer among others quoted as saying, you know, I walked into that arena. Billy Packer was a Wake Forest and I walked into that arena. 'cause I need to see this kid play, and I thought, holy. This guy's better than anybody in the ACC right now just and there's no professional resume to speak of. Well, that's because he was blackballed by his own teammates. He's he gets to the hawks, right? Right. And the story goes now, this is the era where Bill Russell and others are speaking of about quotas and how we can I an Oscar players on the team and all of this. And even you have some of Wiltz white teammates in the book. One of them saying, I, I knew I was on the team. Yeah, Joel dot com. He didn't just of why he left. He didn't spot when they win this white kilter mentally, hey, and he's like, no, I'm not clear hill. I would watch your documentary just on clue. I believe he was featured in black magic was featured black magic like, and we should mention by the way that this book is only made possible because of Dan choruses documentary. This was Dan Clark is baby for our book was born from his wonderful documentary. We truly important to say that. Yeah. I mean without without that stash of interviews, this incredible sort of one LA show shine that that that that at at the the beginning. because saying a million more time. So we will. About to go on like a year long awards torso, it's going to be Danquah, but Cleo hill goes to the hawks in the sixties is clearly the best player on the team and the other players the so the story goes are like, we don't want this. This black dude can't be the best player a team. Let's get him outta here. Well, more importantly, it was the owners in the front office that were saying that because they said, if if I think the way they said was, if a negro is the leading score in our team, we won't get any fans credible, and he gets a decent amount of space in the book, and.
