"Well the one thing I will say is that. The Knicks have plenty of money. They've spent it on the wrong. People forget about the people on the court. It's the people off the court that have screwed this franchise over and over and over again that. Creates a dysfunction within the organization that it's almost impossible to overcome and now comes guys who are in positions who have never been in these positions before now I know other teams have had success with former agents coming back as general managers, and you know you take a look at the Golden State Warriors and you can see that there is a path to success. Assuming Leon rose can do this. Assuming that worldwide West can do this assuming that Steve. Stoute can do this that this doesn't become the triangle of madness. And and it continues to go round and round and round and the ineptitude, and the just the absolute. On Organization of a of a team that keeps adding personnel off the court. Crates quite the problem I mean. You have four people now at at the top of this organization. You have Leeann rose. You have Scott Perry got worldwide west and Got Steve Stoute, so there's that's that's the foursome. The four muskateers that are running the next right now and they've had tenor, or whatever for the head, coaching position and the question is. Are they going to hire guy that actually has a personality, a background and is not afraid. To get tough on the players and I I don't know if I don't know if they'll hire Tom Tippett or not, but the point being is that you can have as much money as you want, and you could spend as much money as you want. But if you spend it on the wrong people, and this may be the wrong people I. Don't know I always want to give guys a chance I always say okay. Let's see you got. Let's see what you're. GonNa do, but you know this gives me a mess. Easily be a mess. Oh, sure I mean. Where do you think got hamster wheel of TURDS? I was talking about the new.

"Very much next to each other. Good and great a father apart love and hate a very very close and it's difficult but you don't have to move somebody that much if they if they can find any emotion in it to hate you. They can find the same passion the passionately hate Is Very close to the passionate love. And if they haven't a passionate feeling towards you to shift that feeling is difficult. But you can if you shifted. You were shifted in a very passionate way. Yeah that's reminds me of something. Draymond green mom actually told me once which I love which she said that all implausible stop. Stop Stop Stop stops. You met Dream on Green's mom I've I've interviewed her a couple times. Listen to me draymond. Greens mom this is very important for everybody to know easily makes the best tacos in the world and I'm not joking around listening really dream on's Greens mom May tacos for me. Draymond and Jack Dorsey the founder twitter About three weeks ago and my head was blown off. I didn't understand the level of crunchiness and mixed with the seasoning. The whole the show seizing the combination. Each byte was better than last. Or what were you draymond? Green Draymond Green. Mom and Jack Dorsey doing together.

And you know I'll go on an empty stomach and I'll enjoy the TACO experience. Last question I would ask is is the question we asked everyone in the podcast which is for a favourite fuck up. It's one of the things I wish I did that. I didn't do. I never signed. I Alicia keys was an artist who came to my office. I in before she had a deal and I didn't signer and I kick myself for that. I mean I. I can rationalize the fact that she didn't have the piano us. She just sang in fact. I didn't even know she played the piano. But I just think about how I've had really good career. But how much would I be proud of that phenomenon of Genius Artists Alicia keys would have been somebody that I would have been associated with her success? Because I'm a fan and she's a genius and I fucked up. Is there less in that or is that just pure regret and you know? I mean I could ask more questions. I don't that wasn't the prerequisite for my famous walk up like I have a fuck up that taught me a lesson but that was a fuck up that I regret because I wish I was that I was a part of well.

"On yesterday show. We had the pleasure of having in Steve Stoute. The Knicks newly appointed branding consultant join. Our set. Stout has enjoyed major success in music. Entertainment Advertising and marketing. He's work work with superstars like gnaws as well as the biggest brands in business one of his first stop says. The Knicks knew. Brandon consultant was on our show yesterday and he explained what his role and goals for the franchise would be they got some young superstars you see RJ Barrett Mitch Robinson. They got some they got some. They got something to work with it and getting a coach in their ultimately getting a coaching too coaching staff. There's going to help develop a team that's like that's what I expect to happen so so that we can actually get to what you expect from New York team are. The Knicks released a statement yesterday after Staus appearance on the show saying while Steve Stoute is a valued valued contributor to the Knicks Marketing. Branding efforts he does not speak on behalf of the New York Knicks personnel and basketball operations. Any decisions regarding the operations of the team will will be made by the new president of the New York Knicks now. South also made the following statement yesterday after his appearance in my excitement to defend the Knicks on live. TV TV today. I inadvertently insinuated about Knicks personnel. I look forward to working with the Knicks management to elevate the great knicks brand moving forward. So guys all three of us were here for the show yesterday. Stephen ailes start with you without out of line with any of his comments on the show he was he was and I think he realizes that because when he spoke about The coach you know. Oh you know remember. I brought up Mark Jackson and talking about how you needed a voice etc etc I didn't anticipate that he would elaborate on that so he recognizes that he didn't mean meaning. Sit Up there. And and and throw coach Miller under the boss per se. But you know what listen. At the end of the day we all know what time. It is Melania on on an interim basis there will be a new coach in New York Knicks Organization next season. Stout may not have you know he should not have spoken on that. But dammit I would have half because it's obvious that that is exactly what's going to happen and if it's a secret and the is a Dolan this. The worst kept secret in modern American era. As far as I'm concerned they will be a new coach coach in New York City For the Knicks next season and it will it will not be coach Miller Milanese the plan on that accordingly in his necessary plans number two. I think the New York Knicks as an organization has proven once again to be pathetic Because they were quick to highlight. What's Steve Stoute's role is not not react and the public perception once again? This is the one thing that James Dolan simply has not captured. He has not realized this when people people look at Oakley as Max religiously points to when people look at him throwing a fan out when people look at him reacting to the booze and ultimately decided to get rid rid of Steve Mills because of chance of Dolan than how he should sell the team once again. It gives the perception that you are reacting to public lick pressure and public perception. All the damn time and you simply can't come along come across as being that way when you're the man for the New York Knicks and if if James Dolan is true to form Steve Stoute could be in a world of trouble simply because James Dolan's is if you felt the need to release that statement Max as it'd be half of the New York Knicks to highlight what Steve Stoute role will not be an is not not within the organization. If you know anything about James Dolan. He's ticked off. He's not happy right now and usually when he gets that way. You know bodies bodies fall. Somebody figuratively speaking heads roll. That's the way it goes in the Dolan Arrow. That's the way it has gone. And so who knows. We gotTA KEEP OUR EYES on Steve out to see what role if any he will plan the Knicks Organization moving forward clearly. Whether it's Leon roles who still trying to negotiate at work out the deal or somebody else but I believe it'll be neatly Leon rose or you know. The bottom line is is that they're going to be the ones that make the decision about who the coach who the the head coach is who the next GM is etc etc.. But we all know it's going to be done by committee we all know is not going to be one person. That's going to make all of these decisions so it's no secret there. It just Steve Stoute in his zest as excitement etcetera etcetera speaking about being that marketing branding God for the New York Knicks. And having having a say when it came to the coach he's spoke out of turn and that's what really robbed Dolan up from my understanding. He was really uncomfortable with what Steve Stoute out had to say about possibly needing to be a new coach. First of all Steve Style out of pocket. Look his main mistake mistake was he came on this show thinking he was going to spin us. I take is not that. Show trust me talking about the Knicks or the number one brand in basketball. No no no so. I had to check that because it's not even close the Knicks or the most valuable question. They're the most valuable franchise in basketball all mainly because it's a most teams real estate deals and New York has the most expensive real estate and TV CON in terms of TV money. It's by for the biggest local market but the New York Knicks. Not The number one brand basketball. That's the Los Angeles Lakers and there are many other teams before the Knicks. So we found that even when he tried to say Mitch Robinson and Rg were superstars. There wasn't even enough time to check all the spin. Of course they're not superstars. I like Robin sees a nice play. I didn't even hear that line backs or to that one. I didn't even. He didn't even remember hearing that j Barrett is potentially really good player. But I I don't see any potential superstars on this team. So that was really his mistake was coming on and trying to spin us. That's not gonNA work now. What you're seeing now from the Knicks? And you just hit on its Steven. A. Is the reason they will not have success while Dolan owns the team. What do I always say? Fish rots. How from the head down and what we have here is a rotten fish and it starts with the head? James Dolan wants to live in my opinion in a bubble where he can live out his fantasies. That's why he pays rock bands so we can open for them. You don't get there on your merit. You have to pay to open for bed so these people these poor people who pay good money to watch actually successful bands subjected to him on the card. Come on man. That's one you see that in other ways to he gets some bad media heads must roll it the garden. He starts because his cage is rattled. Charles Oakley doesn't like the fact that he owns the team escorts in the garden. A Fan has assigned sell the team. Same Dolan since he had him removed saying well he disturbed are fan policy. He violated fan policy. He was disturbing people not Jim. He went disturbing anyone. He was finding violate any policy. He said he wants you to sell the team. Because you're a terrible owner. It's the same reason why suspected in widely reported that he had a burner recount one of the tweets on that count was saying how Jim Dolan is the person everyone wishes he could be. Well the reason among the reasons people suspect I'm sure that that's burner account is because no one thinks that except Jim Dolan and I find it. Frankly sad if the case is that was burner account. There's no way to know that but I find it sad bad that someone would feel the need to say that on a burner account because no one else's saying it except the toadies who you pay you know listen you you. You can't buy respect. He is not respecting. He's rich well He. He is feared by people in the organization because he controls they're finally the money's a future but he's not respected. and that's what bothers. Jim Nolan in my opinion. He's he's definitely feared by some. Obviously really there is a lack of respect is no denying that And the bottom line is this. Here's the reality of the situation. And this is what Dolan missed with his public statement Eightman as long as you remind people of the perception that they already have that it. Is You Dolan who is making management decisions. Branding branding doesn't matter. It doesn't matter at all because everybody is going to be looking at you. The whole purpose of Steve Stoute's existence was to give the impression at least I that somebody other the EU will take over the imagery of the New York Knicks basketball people come in the mix and we will handle things that way. That was the perception Steve You got to remember and in fairness and in the interest of full disclosure. Listen Steve Stoute wanted to come more to come on I. That's why he was on there because obviously he's a music mogilino brand marketed do you you. Didn't he wasn't synonymous with basketball. He might have done some things but we didn't know about it but he wanted to come on. I take that's what he wanted wanted to do. In the end what it comes down to is this as a knick fan which he says he is me knowing who I am knowing who you want war before you betrayed trade it all and went to the Los Angeles Lakers man when we look at when when when US Has New York Knicks Fan speaking for myself and we know how D- How desolate this situation as how bad and destitute it really really is. It's just an embarrassment of epic proportions. Even rules could come in there and change it if he could get William Wesley Worldwide West up in if they could get Kiki Vandeweghe John Calipari roster. I'll give a damn who it is wherever it could get players. Get them but in the end still at all what is gonNA come down to. Is this as long as Dolan. Still has this insatiable whoa appetite to react to public. Perception is quickly. Ns petulantly as he. Does you go here the same stuff stephen. A I'm going to shock you now okay. It's not impossible that Dole can turn it around anyone who's gotten sober. I'd say it's impossible as he has by by the way knows that that you can take stock of yourself you can try to make things better. Every day is a new day to do that. He has certain qualities that people like a lot not like. He's very loyal to some people whose who've worked for him. He's incredibly loyal right right and and that's a that's a good quality. He's it's not not too late for him to to go to Charles Oakley publicly and apologize for example to take stock of the by the way even the fact that he likes likes to play music is good. It says good things about it. That doesn't mean necessarily. You're a good person elected play music. But there's things to like about everybody including Dolan and he has a chance chance still. He's not that old guy. Here's a chance still to earn people's respect imitate people into it follows. The course he's on on he will not succeed in doing it. Two things I WANNA say number one Dolan is renowned for his loyalty to those. Who are loyalty him? He's incredibly loyal number one and number two. I must confess this Roz on national television as a black man. This man James Dolan. I'll give him credit for this. He looks out for a lot of black folks. He gives a lot of black folks opportunities he truly truly does. It's just that he's got thin-skinned and can't take personal criticism. He's got to man up and toughened up his skin in that regard more than anything else. You'll be fine..

"That? I wouldn't disagree with you. I think having you know if you don't have a superstar superstar athlete one single superstar athlete. That's the face of the team that can talk on the team's behalf having a coach like that who has the the magnitude and Gravitas. So that the media would love to talk to him and believe him. I think that's that's that's super important for for the organization I think every organization needs that either with a superstar athlete or coat accidentally has a record of developing young talent. Having them believe she does a number of wins. I absolutely want to see this work for you and for the next to turn it around mixed man. Can you give me a time. Line to hold onto looks reasonable. I'm a sports fan as any sports fan knows like would you really want to see is up. Signs of optimism improvement week second week out. Improvement plays getting developed being better and as a fan of a team. That's what keeps you growing. I can tell you starting now. We're getting we're going to get better. You're going to start seeing improvement. You know week after week. And just the aggressive nature of the team itself management who we're going after world we're bringing in. We know we need to change. Or they know they need to change. And I believe that. There's a very clear path and plan Dan to help. Bring that optimism and hope to winning and give New York City the team that they deserve all right. Well thank you so much for joining us. Thank thank you good luck Bro. He's hoping comebacks listened. Max We're talking about music. Listen isn't evaluate Max's music career. Give him that look. It up. Massive match was a rapid sign of Columbia records and that was back then. Nozzles on the label able Fuji's so rough outs records rough Chris. Chris Gross so Max knows all about this whole connection between obviously the music and sports the other thing is like bring entertainment entertainment. Help binny's independent artists like that's another thing that I'm excited about. Having a garden having mix having this deal with apple music and helping get independent giving voice to the voiceless. I think that's dope. Maybe Max that can absolutely we have an effect on the culture. It can be part of a solution when people make fun of it like. Oh what's that GONNA do. I look at the ducks all the time Oregon. They changed their uniform. Mm something simple. Just hot uniforms all the sudden recruits wanted to go play there. That stuff makes a difference when Kevin Durant I went to golden state before we got on. The first thing I'd done was doing event form at a very good friend of mine. Ben Horowitz is home. He's the leading venture capital. Every athlete came and only really wanted to do was speak to been hard about what tech investment cannot be so whether it's music entertainment or technology. Yes you can do things. Should we gotta go. We gotta go. It was a great great interview. I appreciate your time but part about ending it the way that you did. Is that what you just said. Has US thinking. Why weren't you here before last summer when Kevin at the rim before you gotTa go to Teams Championship Hope Square off tonight when Kemba Walker Celtics visit Houston to take on James Harden and Russell Westbrook and the small ball rockets? Stephen I'll start with you. which all star has a better shot at making the finals this year James the Miniature Kemba Walker who sensational insatiable guideline of love for him? I think Boston showed us what they're capable of. When they're going up against those trees and Milwaukee I think it's a little bit too much for them to overcome and even though Max's made a religious argument about how James Harden and needs to do better in the post season I think we all know we all know if James Harden were to make shots got in the postseason the way he does in the regular season? What the hell are you going to do about that this dude if you listen? He's averaging thirty five this year Eh. He's one of the prolific scores. This game has ever seen. If the shot falls like that in the post season they can beat anybody. Yeah I I agree with that. I think that harden has a championship in there somewhere. If he can do that he hasn't shown that he can yet meantime. He's in conference. Where Los the Angelus is fielding two teams? That are like the Lakers are doing it in the regular season the clippers. We all know they're not worried about the regular season. You see what's there. It's just the tougher conference. The Celtics Meantime Stephen. When they've been healthy they basically don't lose? They win almost all the time. When they're healthy and without career in the locker room when you add Kemba and we see the issues in Brooklyn now Kemba uplifting? The Locker Room Hayward's back from injury and now a year removed from a catastrophic injury. Tatum Brown have now blossomed. This is a a really really good team. Celtics really really good. I think Canada has a better shot. I'm an offer great great regular season team. I think in the postseason when you run into those was trees. It's a problem for them. I know they. They are perimeter team anyway. But when you're forced to do that come postseason Tom. I think is significantly more difficult. They're both underdogs underdogs jaded when it comes to James Harden scoring ability. Are we talking enough about the fact. He's averaging like thirty not talking enough about it. Because James Harden's exceptional optional play. It's gotten to a point which working against him because now it's become ordinary to us. We see it we expected we know how phenomenal he is. Okay okay you need to do that in the postseason. That's what it's come down to. I'm I believe I'm not sure about this. But it's a theory. I officer I have. It could be proven wrong. I don't know but like Peyton. Manning Greg Maddux pitcher in baseball. They never did as well under pressure in the playoffs. They didn't irregularly. I think hardens like that when you have a cerebral player. Who's WHO's getting by on some junk on misdirection on the regular season when there's not enough time to prepare they can pick you apart put in the playoffs when they have time to prepare? And you're facing other elite elite athletes. They're cerebral to and they got the hard heat. I don't think harden is the athlete that is Lebron is and they're just as smart as him so I think he's as at a disadvantage in the playoffs. Max's hardens best chance at an NBA championship behind him. No you can't say that. Because if they keep Daryl Morey he's capable of working magic. Here's my problem. And I'm a fan of Darrow Maureen. I think he's done a good job and I hope that he stays in Houston for years to come but let's be very very clear earlier. You don't get to hold just to play his accountable sometimes at some point in time as an executive. You're knocking on the door. You'RE NOT GONNA you're not gonNA door is what you're doing doing working is Dan. Tony the right man for the job. I think that might then. Tony is an exceptional coach. My problem is will his style of coaching deliver. Live your championship. It'll liver the fifty plus wins the season. It'll get you a couple of rounds in the playoffs but can't deliver the chip might Dantonio coordinate. Dantonio has it's been a head coach in the National Basketball Association for many years. He's never been in an NBA finals. Windy you saw asking those questions about him amaury all right. We asked a question to the fans on twitter. They wait and we said would co wise. We have had a better chance at a championship if he just stayed with the raptors. And you you guys said fifty nine percent said yes so to stay in Toronto. But he's GonNa be alright with L._a. he's warm..

"A place to play on earth the greatest arena in the world. My point of view. SWAZIS WANNA go get psyched up to go to Madison Square Garden and you add this iconic franchises. I think if we get those things right but gardens no issues. We get the Knicks right. We plays wanting to come in. I think all of those other things. Ah We talked about whether it be Steinbrenner Jerry Jones when you start winning you start putting that product on the court. Those things stolen uh-huh so some of the frustrations have nothing to do with Dolan. In your opinion I think I think fans need somebody to point. Let me say this. Let me let me move this forward. First of all of us understand something here. You got three sides when you talk about a basketball franchise you've got operations size operations President Your Gm you got your coaching. And of course you've got the business side and if they're all aligned of one like mind one voice. You really really don't have any problems. That's why you don't have problems in Miami. For example samples Pat Riley. One could argue was still here and it never left the facts to depart from the Knicks to go to Miami. We might be saying what we've been saying about the New York Knicks for the Benepe. Definitely what a last second. It's not just about winning Ben. It's about the voices about things being alive. Really where you come Steve. where I think it's important wouldn't that you really highlight for everybody? Would you are about. Is that Bob Dole and bringing you on board Max is point is that nobody's GonNa believe in Dolan if his name is attached to it and if this image is imagery is attachment. Nobody's GonNa believe him but if as you it might are being entirely different ballgame altogether so when we when we're sitting up here with Steve Stoute. Here's the question. It's one thing to be about brandon. Whatever what kind of voice voice you're going to have what kind of influence you expect that? Because we can't confirm Leon roles in we understand. We understand that. That's not the answer but it is for you to answer. Hey what kind of role you go play. How what are we going to see from you when it comes to the New York Knicks winning aggressive attitude going after the best representing exactly what a winning attitude and a winning culture needs needs to have that means plays plays? That means color smells coaching everybody. Yeah we play Tom. Payment of team every game. Post game everybody the way you look on the way out the way you feel when you walk in the mayor for the next. You'd say that right. So am I talking into the man for the new guy on that. Listen I'm part of a team and that's GONNA be part of a team but I got a loud voice got as part of a team of basketball particularly the NBA. Is If you just clear the decks you have no salary issues bad contracts and young players. You can't get a single superstar to change an entire way. A team is perceived right on so I don't think it's a bad idea to target the the Greek freak or someone like that in free agency and save the world is yours. You can take your yet a player like that right on the other hand. The Knicks have tried that strategy. Before your and have struck out so much what they wind up with his just clear decks right. So how do you when they tried it before. Lebron Lebron and Wade during the core Melo Hello Carmelo was traded the whole team for Carmelo. That's exactly what you just said. You said we focus on one guy right but but you have to focus on the guy who's actually actually an MVP caliber player. Not just everybody thought at that time. Camello was you didn't think it wasn't. I was right if everyone thought that they were wrong. But the point and he's a great player. There's a Lebron criminal guys say something Dhanapala the Carmelo. I thought that I thought that when they made the Carmella move it was aligned with exactly everything. You've said focusing on a superstar athlete. Oh Hey didn't just sign them. They traded the whole team for him. And then when Donnie Walsh was trying to play hard ball Dolan Steph. There's like no just give them everything they want. Come on the point that was Dolan messing that up but the point still is good. You believe rumors affects you. Tell me if that's not true. You believe me it. Okay so okay but the the point is I think that your strategy is a good one. Let's clear the decks and try and get prime-time time superstars to come and take the money you can have you on the other hand that has to be on simultaneous tracks with drafting in development. What kind of influence do you have on that side of on the on the personnel side? We we're bringing in a president. Obviously we're looking quickly to get a president in to help reshape with that coaching team and the development team for Friday fleets. I am working with Dolan and working with the organization. Help Nope as we pick that as we pick that leader helping support that leader whatever he needs to help bring the best teams that he can't to New York like. That's that's my role. I don't WANNA I don't WanNa sit here but the reason I'm interrupted his. This is somebody else that was in the business world that the side of the the president of basketball operations now obviously. That's not the role you're playing but I'm thinking about Irvin Magic Johnson and how one there were various as people were arguing. He had to divest is interesting. You know this is a fulltime job. That's not what you're saying. He is so considering. I want you to highlight us. The multitude the two things that you're going to be into it whether or not that's going to compromise you in any way and I'm talking about time. The energy needed to help reveal okay. So first and foremost I'm in the entertainment business right. I'm in the media entertainment business. I work with advertisers. I work with great artists. That's what I like to do and I've always found working with a newborn with the Jay Z.. A. Great Artists. Or you're working with star like Lebron James. It's very similar. In what keeps their attention. Keeps them focused and attracts them to whatever situation you want to bring them to and like they WANNA be around successful people. They want to be around smart aggressive successful people who have have very rational ideas to keep moving forward. And that's the kind of spirit that I want to bring to this team and if I can play a role in getting that done whether whether it be the entertainment like I said during a game or a play that we want to go after or a coach that we wanna go out to whatever it may be I wanna be able to the play and I have the liberty to play a role in getting that. Does that does make a difference. That's up Donnie. Walsh was an excellent GM. I thought Dolan cut his legs out in the Carmelo. The abuts during the decision with Lebron the Knicks contingent that went in was never gonNA compete with Pat Riley Pat Riley. What he was selling was just going to be different? I don't understand the decision was made but but when you saw the knicks. So you're saying you have to bring a big time. What feel to the next when you're going after these players I think I think they need to know that we're real and believe not just snow? Believe you come to New York and New York sells itself but like like am I going to a place where I believe. The dedication to winning and being great is a part of the culture there and I think that's a role because of the success says I've had the other things that I've done at a fundamental belief and I'm bringing at fundamental beliefs to that management used Mark Jackson as an example. But I'm I'm not asking you to go there. I just want you to hear what my thoughts are. I love somebody like that. I'm glad you do. My thing is because of the more the state of affairs that has existed with the New York Knicks for the last twenty years or so close to the last twenty years. I think that they need a voice. Attached to their basketball ascot ball franchise meaning somebody that the media sees all the time that the media communicates with all the time. Not think that's incredibly important. You can't just look for Ah College it has to be somebody that can galvanize New York. What do you say.

"They can come here and actually be the best be themselves mean that hasn't that hasn't transpired over recent times I understand some of the reasons why we got to solve that issue. I think there's a culture of winning and excitement it. That New York City has a New York. City is the hub of sports and entertainment. That's how I feel. It started moving around. My job is to bring it back. Toronto Raptors they brought in Drake right. They drink to bring that thing to New York Knicks. Broadened make go ahead Max. Okay first of all as a whole lot here first of all New York is the center of the known universe right. There's a reason that that the United Nations is up. There and Sesame Street is also New York in the imagination of child and the reality of politics of Earth Wall Wall Street whatever. New York City is the center of the known universe whether people like it or not but the New York. Knicks are not even close to the iconic franchises in the NBA. Yea By four. And it's not close. That's the Los Angeles Lakers as measured by worldwide fame as measured by championships in the modern era etc etc measured by. Who would be on their Mount Rushmore? The New York Knicks have not won a championship in my lifetime. I'm forty six years old. They want it in January. Seventy three seventy three north forty forty seven. I'm forty six. This is real. They haven't won one George Steinbrenner. You're right he came in spending money in a no salary. Cap League bought some championships. But you know when the Yankees started winning again when Steinbrenner started losing it and had to take a step back from the first of all when he got banned from baseball he couldn't trade away all young prospects he couldn't put his bad influence fluence on the team and he stepped away. The baseball people ran it then when he came back he took a back seat and they started winning just talking about this perception of Steinbrenner. You're right people WANNA steinbrenner. God No doubt about us for good reason. Jesus Listen Chuck. Dolan wasn't a great owner but he was good enough to feel the competitive. If team you know what James has done since he took over Fifteenth Place Fourteenth Plays Fifty. He's had two decades now he can't get it done the worst I owners in basketball. I'm talking about Steve. I'm talking about results. Never mind the fact you know why used to stand online playoff tickets overnight with my brother to what to watch Charles dive on the ball on the ground for loose ball. James Dolan hasn't removed from Madison Square Garden Knicks Fans Ads. I urge you follow the nets. That's actually the team in New York bringing excitement until James Dolan crawls on his hands and knees to Charles Oakley and bends events. His forgiveness like Steinbrenner did to Yogi Berra when he brought him back to the Yankee Stadium. Don't ask to start showing contrition. He has started meeting his mistakes. Stop treating fans fans who say sell the team deny lying about it talking about Oh it was a disturbance. Don't stand telling you he's not disturbing anyone but you sell the team because he thinks you stink. That's what I'm talking about. Steve I got it. You've said yes you've said you expect Mon- I think New Yorkers expect more and our job is to fix that fix some of those things. I can't address all the issues that you WanNa talk about that predates me right of course there so it was a very good friend of mine. I've known Charles since I was twenty when years old I don't i. I didn't like what happened with took place. I wish it could be different the fact that the matter is I got a job now. My my job sucks from today going forward to fix up and clean up some of the things of the past that was wrong but also bring that excitement back to the city. Bring that music and entertainment hub. That New York is bringing it back and that's my job and that's what I'm going to do is your job just with the Knicks. Has I know you're doing things with the NBA the NBA's been doing business with Apple. Talk about that for exactly. What your role is your former music guy? Okay and look. I've always seen the convergence of of of music and Steve Stoute's success in the music industry is so music and sports and like every time I look at the NBA. You guys walk down that red carpet. They got headphones on. So you know what the listening to something that's inspiring them and they got the right fashion on the NBA is the most culturally influential league. By far right and I believe that fashion and music are aspects of it that they could further expound upon we just did a deal with my company united masses his for independent artists the best place for independent artists to get their music distributed. Apple Music is now partner so United Masters the the NBA can apple music partnership to take independent artists and promote them to play with his called baseline so so this is about sports and entertainment coming together and promoting independent artists. And I think it's going to be game changing. I've always stood for giving a voice voiced voiceless as I've always wanted to do was early in rap music with these young kids coming up and needed to get out there and get exposed. I was doing that Whether working working with great athletes I mean we did this campaign with Chris Paul for State Farm. You guys seen that Chris Paul and his that I mean again giving him a profile. That's huge right beyond the basketball court. I've always been about. How do we keep doing audience experience? I get what you're saying. That shouldn't be taken lightly. I'm sure there are cynics out there going all house house popular culture going to check in fact. The Oregon ducks changed their uniform. Kids wanted to go play in Oregon. It actually culture does have an effect on recruiting and all that stuff. That's what ultimately eighty two rises question. How drafting and development? Not just identifying the kid but putting them with the coaching that makes him the best he can be. That's the kind of functioning that that superstars WANNA see like. Is this a healthy. How do you plan on addressing that stuff? Look I mean you guys announced Steve Mills former president. They need a change in leadership. First off I'm all about like diversity and getting more African African Americans senior roles. I think it needs not only in sports but also in corporate America I had nothing to do with Steve Mills departure. I JUST WANNA clean that up okay. I don't WanNa be I WANNA be Kinda before getting people more jobs specifically women and African American not necessarily getting rid of folks undecided number one but they I had to change right so there is a change. That change will bring a new coach and new coaches that are gonNA help develop these younger players right and they got some young superstars you see. Rg Barrett Mitch Robinson. They got some they got. They got something to work with and getting a coach in there Ultimately getting a coach and the coaching staff is going to help develop the team. That's like that's what I expect to happen so that we can actually get to what you expect from a New York team but those things things take time and I can only talk about from today right. You think they'll be any kind of approach from Dolan to Oakley to try to get him to come back to be publicly apologized to a New York City icon was the heart and soul of the team. That is that not Jim. Dolan Chucked on his father owned before he just bequeathed it the gym and built up. You think there'll be any of which you advocate. I would I would. I would love to see that thing as a New York. Fan is a friend. Brenda Charles Oakley as somebody part of the Knicks Organization. Of course I would love to see that subsided. Bring that back piece Charles. Oakley is a very big part of New York. He's the fabric of the New York. Knicks have stood for for many years that toughness resourcefulness by any means necessary attitude hard work as as the brand consultant for the New York Knicks. I WanNa make sure that we understand. I mean you talk about brand consulting. We know what that means yeah but in today's NBA NBA because of their fixation. These athletes fixation or music on their own individual branding how they consider the manufacture those things into a career. We're beyond the playing court. I'm wondering do you believe that. That's going to be successful in recruiting guys to come to you for your connects absolutely you. You know what I mean. Plays went to Golden State because of the tech industry around that team. You know that right. That had like cool. I want to go to. Bob is a great guy. You know Steph curry whatever but like I can go to and I can get game off the game. These athletes in the locker room. I'm sure there was a period of time. They were talking about what clubbing. Go to this that and the third guys talking about their portfolios moments looking for your city take somebody doing here. We're GonNa do you think I'm relaxing. I'm going to go into this. These type of opportunities the -tunities the players WanNa talk about. They WANNA get into technology investments. They wouldn't expand beyond just being an athlete like Maverick Maverick and Lebron James and company uninterrupted more than an athlete. They all what that. So if my if I'm going to be a part of the Knicks Organization. I'm bringing my entire a network to the table. That's my job to essentially. I'm being presumptuous here but I'm going to say it. James Dolan has given utilize us to highlight and illuminate for athletes. What he can potentially bring to the table because he has a billionaire the data could say listen? A lot of people screwed up a lot of money. That wouldn't that wouldn't shock you either right back. I am not. We could talk about the Knicks record and like the issues with Nick Record. You can't discredit at all the moves guys made as a businessman. Sure I can now. By the way. If you take the money Wade herited and invented it at is some kind of conservative. Interesting compounded you wind up with that's Detroit auto. You'RE GONNA you're wrong the brand on I take here. Okay and after commercial buying more next coming up all right welcome back to I take a we continue with. Mix Rebranding Consultant Steve. Stoute so you're the rebranding guru here. We were just branding in Google music girl. I'm you've done many many things. You've succeeded at the highest levels of a number of different genres of business business and industries. And that's why it makes absolute sense sense to me that the Knicks bring you in for your expertise and I want to start with where we left off on James Dolan. He he gets a lot of criticism and as you heard in the angst from Max you know that whole Oakley incident. It's still resonates hurts a lot of knicks fans. When you when you think about Dolan does does he need a rebrand as well? I don't think we have the Madison Square Garden..

"A coordinator there's never call plays in the NFL. In fact never call plays anywhere in he got promoted to the offense coordinator. So when you look at that you gotta take a step back and say okay. Although Philip rivers did some things that make you frown he also did some things that you go you know. What if we surround him with enough weapons he might be able to take us where we wanted to go because about saying this? I'm not trying to say that he's not he couldn't be a starter. Start in this league. What I'm saying is what we've seen from Philip rivers? I think the best day he's a low and started what I'm saying affair with low and that's not so no shut me off but that's OK allies got you got you do because I do. Oh you ate ice scared you. I'll be I'll be Indian DISA- cargo you know where to find me. Keyshawn talk to your boy like that. Oh you leave in the mall. That's got the listening. How do you judge someone and not by what they say by what they do? We're a nation of doers. What's my Bloomberg about doing things? A middle class kid worked his way through college.

Mike Bloomberg knows how to lead to build to deliver to do. He'll win in this country. Mike will get things done. I'm Mike Bloomberg candidate for president. And I approve this message because we need to deliver on the promise of the American American Dream Paid for by Mike Bloomberg Twenty twenty. Welcome back to I take we are coming to you. Live from above the Chase River Decade Pier. Seventeen the Bucks Fox improved to five and now without Janice Kubo this season after last night's win over the Kings congrats the puppy honest and his family welcomed their first son. Liam Charles and all over all Milwaukee has the best record in the NBA and last year's MVP is averaging a career best thirty points and thirteen and a half rebounds per game we. We bring back basketball analyst. John still with us. Thank you for returning to all right Max. V P so far this season yes regular seasons not close close the MVP slam dunk as they say. Look you know how I feel about. MVP in the regular season. If you watch the show it's ridiculous award two months or played in the postseason and if you win the finals no. MVP ever comes from playoff team. Fifty more than fifty percent of the teams make the playoffs. Basketball's a sport where one player has an enormous impact. It's absurd that they give give just a regular see. It should be the whole thing. Nevertheless they do and Janas runaway look Jaanus entered. The compound was the best player in basketball in the regular season. And last year led the League in P. E. R. which is not perfect but if factors in points rebounds like instead of me sitting here and going yes thirty points thirteen and and a half rebounds almost six assists over steel and over a block a game. Oh my God. Pr Take all of that into account. It's good quick thumbnail sketch and the season were to end today. jaanus would have the highest PR single season of all time. Go youngest one then will will Jordan in Lebron in their best seasons like that of all time. Hold on hold on defensively. He's a monster of monster now. Aw Lebron James has been doing a great job. He deserves a lot of credit. The fact of the matter is there are two top five players on the team point any team in history with two legit the top five players on the team to do great like like. Oh my God. They're doing so great and Lebron's do nausea but any two top five players in the NBA playing at the same time. They're both legit. That team always does great. Lebron's is great and deserves a lot of the top five player but you honestly say top one player in the regular season and by the way also like a lot the offense is completely built around him and he's the best defensive player on the team he's the MVP. Hey look all great points and Janas having a phenomenal season just as he did a year ago. You're discrediting Lebron James. And what he is doing in Los Angeles. Here's why you talked to you earlier in the show. I believe Max talked about how the the path an eastern conference was easier if Kawhi Leonard was on the Raptors to win a championship. Well it's easier for us to get those numbers up to because he's playing in the eastern conference in fact. The Western Conference is Plus Twenty Games on the Eastern Conference. So far this season. Alright looking at Lebron James Oh volving and continuing to improve of himself as he goes along last time a thirty five year old lead the NBA. In assisting Steve Nash. Lebron James looks a little bit different than Steve Nash. As far as his body in the way that he plays in the way that he can control the game and dominated variety of fashions. And yes you have to have players around you to get those numbers question. I'm not diminishing Anthony Davis and his role on this team. Smart man once told me this about thirty five seconds before we came to air analytics or tool to determine value. Max Kellerman a believe. You told me that ooh real plus minus in the NBA which is your overall value to your team's success and given the opponents kind of okay. Lebron is thirty five percent higher than the next person on that list. Who is Jaanus? Lebron is highly. Actually that proves nothing because the when when you have concentrated in two players for the Lakers put all their resource each player. Each one of those two Uber Stars. If you take them off the team will suffer significantly significantly on a more balanced roster with only one superstar. They're more able to afford factors in opponents and who are playing as well and that goes back to my original promptly tougher about Lebron plane tougher competition night out night at night in night out basis his level of efficiency in. Wow He's been shooting the ball this year. Everything that Lebron check all the Stephen I who do you agree with. I'm listening to them. Go who have better defensively. The and John says it better impact. The honest is a better defensive player and these schedule gradual thing that you're talking about the bronze a great season his PR. This is a good twenty. Five is seven points which is huge difference between an average average player in a real. All Star is seven point Johnson average player though. No what I'm saying is the difference between Janas. Prn Lebron's is like the discipline and all star all right and it's the numbers the numbers fence great but the numbers and the far the analytics go. And how you look at it as we were talking about I can take my numbers which which are legitimate numbers as well that say. He's thirty five percent higher rig. I explained in plus minus Iceland. Okay and you can look at your numbers and you could explain. Why as far as numbers go? He's also having more opportunity to do it because he doesn't have a top five player around him that has also taken up numbers because as we saw last night. Anthony Davis went for twenty five and ten again last night. Yeah but he has a lot out of players who contributed leave it or not You know in about a month or so I've gotta go to MIT Miss Darrow Mauri has invited me Along with some of of his cohorts of invited me to speak. I have no idea why they did not invite Max Kellerman It doesn't make any sense to me since he loves his lyrics and I actually have two eyes and I believe in the I tests be just as significant as the numbers. Okay having said all of that I must say I actually agree with Max at this particular moment in time. I don't think that that may be the situation. Waste at the end at the beginning of the season. Pick Lebron James to win the MVP award. I still think there's a chance because I think he's number two in the race right now. I just look at the Greek freak. I think he's been a model of consistency. Look at Milwaukee having the number one offense. We've bragged.

"Have a good one in the Philip. Rivers era with the chargers is officially over the franchise announced yesterday that rivers will be a free agent and will not return for the upcoming season rivers is currently six in NFL. History in both passing yards and touchdown passes now to discuss this. Let's welcome in former. Nfl Star white out. Yvonne Johnson. What's up how you doing? Are you guys doing good. Just try and be like you. Whatever says the the guy who spends all the time in L. A.? Wants to be like anyone out there. You go all right. Well let's go Stephen Al Start Art which you should river still be starter in the NFL. I really wish y'all have warned me. keyshawn Johnson was going to be on this segment. Because I really don't want to say this front of him because he'll bite my head off but I'm going to say what I feel. I feel river. She retired but this time I appreciate I appreciate the career that he's had demanded throwing for fifty nine thousand yards. Got A hundred and ninety seven touchdowns. He's completed sixty four percent. Mortar sixty four percent of his passes in his career. He has no scroll by any stretch of the imagination and obviously he warrants consideration the ratio for the hall of Fame Mad respect for him. But I think that what I've seen over the last two years from him. It's not so much the twenty interceptions that he just threw rupe. I'm looking at 'em mobility in a world where the athletes on the defensive side of the ball are so elite in in this day and age that if you are a stationary target. I just don't have much faith in. You can ball. I mean Jean Allen in these boys they can get it done onto. Henry is going to be back. Expectations ingrained can run out of the backfield. We get all of that and still you just saw too many afternoons with Philip. Uh Rivers couldn't get it done. I'm not saying it's all his fault. We get it but when we sit up here we talk about Brady any expectations that he could potentially pick up a charging even at the age to what you are saying in essence as everywhere else. We have the requisite weapons to compete that flagrantly at the quarterback position there is something sorely lacking and I think in the case of Philip rivers that side on that he throws with even though he's tall and he can get away with it because he's tall and he and he can see over opposing defensive Lineman I just think about his throw. Emotion is immobility combined on with the elite athletes on the defensive side of the ball and the way to gain is evolving before our very eyes. And I just think that we've seen the Best Philip rivers. I'm not saying he can't play anymore but I think we've seen the best of him and whatever we've seen already. We're not going to see any better than what we're normally I would say retired a certain point in Philip rivers case. I don't think he's a starter anymore. Let's maybe the box. Maybe there are a few fitness there. We could. I see him as a backup but I would not suggest gesture retire and I know what that sounds like. It's disrespectful no. You could still win a mess around. Nick foles won a super bowl backing up Carson wentz and this is the reason I feel this way. I've always been a Philip rivers fan. There's so much to like there. The Iron Man Right. He's always there. He's played on a lot of excellent teams. It's not like he hasn't had chances. But you know many many times. I've brought up in production meetings. Like what if Philip Rivers is the topic book we all agree. That's not gonNA lead the show. People don't care enough about it Ben. Rothlisberger might alive manning might and they drafted in the same draft glasses Philip rivers and he's just as good as those guys right. It seems like he's just as good as those guys but he never won the super title and he had plenty of chances on really good teams and he never came through in fact it pains me to say. He came up a lot of the time when they needed him. Most even though he's a super br tough guy and a leader and I love the fact he talks trash and he's put up big numbers and all that stuff he hasn't won the Super Bowl and for a franchise that people don't care about. I mean the chargers are they. Just don't have the same kind of fan base says like even an L. A. and key. You know this if you were to list. How people care about different franchises? You'll get to a whole bunch of franchises franchises and a whole bunch of sports before you get to the charges including the rams including the raiders are still more love than La then the chargers so all that conspired against Philip rivers. And the way I think about it. He's still good veteran leadership. The whole thing good enough to back someone up good enough to help them in their development and good enough where if anything happens and he's a good team. I think you should go to a good team. He's on a good team. If anything happens to the starter I would hate to see him and his career without a super bowl all I want to see him on a super bowl team so in this rare case I would say I don't think he's a starter anymore for the most part. I don't WanNA see retire without a super bowl ring. Well he certainly only a starter in the national football league. And and when you look at where these quarterbacks ahead it I know we're looking at the Mar Jackson and we're looking at at Patrick mahomes into Shawn Watson but you know there are still a few statues that are in this league still playing. He's not a guy who can run around. There's no question the body but when you look at teams like the Indianapolis Colts Jacoby Brusett. You're looking at that division. Where Tennessee Houston Jacksonville? Indy was in the mix. The quarterback fell apart the receivers. The offense align is there to protect. We talk about things that happen in Sandy L. A. Charges. Keep Calling San Diego Steal. The offense align tackles left and right terrible not good at all. The running game by committee was okay. The receivers dropped some balls at times. Philip rivers to a lot of interceptions. There's no question person about it but when you talk about a team like the Indianapolis Colts and you look at what they are capable of doing with frank right. His former quarterback coach Co offense coordinator who helped gain plan when he was with. The chargers has a great relationship with Philip Rivers. And you know maximum in in Stephen these coaches around the league. They always like veteran players. I remember one thousand nine hundred ninety eight we had a guy named Vinny Testaverde Vinny Testaverde lit it up. He was that one year best quarterback in the league and he was a statue a statue and everybody kept saying it was time for him him to retire. Doubted outed out at what they do in Indianapolis is they retool the receiver position you got. Ty healed you go out there. And one of my favorite receivers in his draft is a kid from Clemson. I keep a kid. From Clinton named T. Higgins remember that name. He's a lot like Keenan. Allen Vincent Jackson in Mike Williams from Clemson guys that he has played with before you give him the big target. The goal at the fifteenth spot right with Ty. I hidden you talk about some. Let me ask you this keyshawn. And by the way I didn't mean he meant. Melvin Gordon obviously missed a few games but I'm saying you know what I'm saying I didn't mean Negro. Here's the deal. You Look Keenan Allen. He can ball. Mike Williams. Only half forty nine receptions but still over a thousand yards he could ball to him. We did some things for them as well. Well the right now when we look at the charges. We're not questioning their weapons. There's a reason the charges elected in other words and by the way props for the video on twitter that they put out playing tribute to Philip rivers because he deserves it will what he did for them all when we look at their organization when we look at this squad thought they got some ballplayers no question. So why would you WanNa let the rivers go. Because they know what he might be done but sometimes stephen when you an assist them in you in a situation you don't get the best out of that person. Okay coach Leon. In this remember they came with it and he went with young offers..

"And then Mary joined the brand as a spoke speedy, and we shot Mary and Jada together in seven. So what was the critical? How did you even get to that point from? Okay. Non giving it to my friends at the flea market to that. So from the flea market. It was flea markets and my apartment, then it was my apartment mostly, and I would only do certain fairs an Expos in summer and holiday 'cause I started to, you know, learn which ones with the heavy hitters, and where I was going to get the most bang for my buck. Then I ended up moving into a house in my husband, and I bought a house, and I was able to have more of an actual store inside of my house. So I sold out of my home for six years after six years, I was able to get my first door. And when I got my first door, I received more press. I did get press while I was in my house, but it was a bit more niece. And because I had a storefront. There was more press. I was able to get on the Oprah Winfrey show through word of mouth, and then that word of mouth led to an investor hearing my story. And kind of not believing that it was that story. He's like come on in her kitchen in Brooklyn nod. This is some big brand that's trying to tail I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go find out, and you know, he did his research, and and someone that he knew was one of my customers and she connected us. And you know, he met me and realized like, oh, wow. This is real like this chick really is in Brooklyn. This is this is a cool story. And he had the vision to see that this wasn't a woman in in Brooklyn making products. This was a beauty company.

From us to advertising from advertising his own marketing agency. And now he's trying to rule the world. But just really really smart and can always see kind of five steps ahead.

Well of the brand have them be a part of the brand and invest in it and speak to it from the perspective of a person who has skin in the game, and will and Jada were users of the brand because they had been introduced to it through friends. So you know, it was something that they were happy to do. Jay was not the millier with the brand as far as. Using the products. But his mother was and I heard that beyond say had heard about it as well. And you know, told him. Oh, yeah. I know that stuff it's really great. And he liked the fact that I was from the same neighborhood in Brooklyn. So you know, it was through Steve that those people became a part of the brand. And then having them, you know, be able to to speak on our behalf helped us to sort of, you know, cut through a lot of steps, you know, I might not have been able to get vogue magazine to write about me or write about my products.
