They can do it with the goaltending. They can do the scoring that can play a filthy style that could play an uptempo style. That would be the one for me. It'd be lightning. What is the worst concert?

"In the warriors? Are you concerned? Stuck in traffic, a buzz about the aura, the lack of a center shot selection down the stretch, these are all considered or do you just say James harden? That was stinking ridiculous. It was all of the above Murph because. Yes, it was ridiculous. But at the same time Klay Thompsons, right and Steph Curry's, right? You don't blow twenty point lead at home. Where are you with the aura of the team? Oh, it's it's considerably shrunken. Jill. At home. That's what I'm scared about these overtime losses. If we had to define why the missing what what's the number one reason is it is it just simply that it's too hard to be championship level sharp five years in a row we're expecting this team to glide into the NBA finals for the fifth consecutive season. Right realities gotta come in at some point. That's part of the story. Ron did it. The guys are getting older the NBA has caught up to a degree. They've kind of caught up. They know what the warriors, dude. They don't have a big man right now to contend with all these other big men that are having their way with the warriors. So I think it's it's a everything you said and other variables man, they we're just not used to seeing this team blow a twenty point lead at home, regardless of who it's against year five of an attempt to scale Everest five years in a row, and they did it three. They should have done it for. And now they're trying to do it for five, and we're seeing the sort of the the wear and tear on the on the on the backpack. Sure. For sure for a couple of weeks. I've been comparing it to that scene in rocky three before he has to fight clubber Lang when he's like, dancing and the convention center in Philly, and he's like kissing women who are coming up and mixed like, let's get out of here. Let's go back to the old gym get are either tiger back. Well, is a great again, we keep referencing are great caller, Casey. But he used to call them and say man, it was either Marvin Hagler or Thomas Hearns one of those two said is hard to stay hungry. When you wake up in silk sheets. It's hard to stay hungry. When you wake up in silk sheets. All right, Kent creek, the cache creek text line has all sorts of thoughts on this deal. Four awaits says I'll still take the warriors in seven over every one nine four nine says hardens about wing winning MVP's. The warriors are about winning champion. That's good. He can't play like that every game. Well, there you go out another another question nine to five hundred the rockets need forty four from Hardin who's playing out of his mind in overtime. Barely beat the dubs. I still believe the warriors in a seven game series. Not worried seven of seven I'm not worrying until someone beats this team in a seven game series four as I agree that hardens talent is tremendous. But he should probably let someone else say, bro. Probably not by the way in the middle of all this is seven oh seven. So is this far Han guy going to do anything about that? I don't know what to say. I don't know what to say about the far hunting anymore because literally nothing's happened. They've got a new scoreboard. We talk more about that than we have like actual one. Quite let me go to the phones. Here. We got worse called is is for him. Is he choke him? Is he just like sitting there? Sweat pouring down his going. I got the big job. What do we do guys are calling up proposing trades, and he's like, no, I can't do it dropped. There's no move to small on us. You know, we got the guy with six fingers. I don't I don't know. There you go. Mike is in Alameda says he was at the ball game last night and Mike you're on Camby are six eighty morning. Hey, what's up guys with my was a bitter pill swallow, I've been four games this year. They lost all four games at home. So I've seen some major problems. I think the la- late game execution with the big leaf. Specifically at home has been unfathomable all season up with a team of this much talent regardless of injuries..

"Talking boxing this week. I've got teddy. Atlas on my podcast. It is live right now. If you've not heard that you wanna make sure you look forward either after the program or sometime this weekend. We are efforting Ray Leonard Ray, Leonard is one of my favorite fighters ever Ray. Leonard is one of my favorite athletes, ever because of the heart that he would demonstrate in fact, we have found him an Olympic gold medal was a six time world champion fighter of the decade for the hundred eighty s founder of the Sugar Ray Leonard foundation, he is a member of the boxing hall of fame. He's an analyst with does own canal fee. Rocky tomorrow night, eight pm live from too long. Definitely too long. Thanks. We'll getting older array responsible Ray. I don't know about you. I'm getting older less responsible beret, you look great though. Look great. I think you're not getting older. I know I am. No, it's more experience than interior. Gotcha got Cannella in rocky tomorrow night. But before we talk about that fight where it talked to me for a minute about Madison Square Garden is a fighter. What goes through you? When you hear those three words Madison Square Garden, and what is the arena means to the sport. Overall. The first thing that comes to mind is mecca and FOX it's it's the place to be, you know, if you haven't fought in Madison Square Garden, you have not. You have not been a fighter for the most part. But you know, I think I've put there. I don't recall what happened. I don't want to recall what happened. Because I think I lost. I don't know what that was. Think that was your fight with Terry Norris. Right. I don't think will have. I don't remember. I got you got you. I remember that fight that was something else. But it's it is the mecca it's where everybody wants to be. So we look at the big picture for the sport Ray where few weeks removed now from wilder fury. And now we've got this fight tomorrow night. It feels like it is a huge moment for boxing as a fan of the sport. Does it feel that way to you? Does it feel like we're at the start of something special once again in boxing, while you know, what's happening. Now, these fights that we look upon is like being oh, sure. This guy's on win. He is fifty to one hundred to one that this guy can't beat whether it's wilder, you know, and that was good indication to because I myself I wanted him. I just thought that it'll be maybe a couple of rounds and wilder would knock him out in theory. All of a sudden, I saw different person fighter in that rain with highs in theory. And he got up the mass knock down. I thought he was out. And he got back up somehow some way. Very interesting. Very interesting to school. I what I from what I saw I three flight edge. But then again that happens to all fight, especially if we have a top notch favorite. Week onto the rain. We're in shape, but psychologically, mentally with not bear. And that's what happens to most champions for the most part. We're talking to Ray Leonard you have Cannella in rocky tomorrow night. Eight PM live from Madison Square Garden on does own. You can get disowned by signing up for free. Ray when you talk about what makes a great champion. What it takes to be a great fighter. Canelo. Cannella is very very very good in your mind. Does he have what it takes to be great? Yes. He does. He's a he's a young, man. And you know, when I saw him against what Mayweather for me. Whether I said, it was going to be a teacher and a student and canal being the student. Good fight the best. He could against a great fighter and for junior. And that and that no one likes to lose. But you know, what I made him a better fighter. Shura Leonard joining us. We're talking about rocky and Cannella. What about rocky Ray? The thing about rocky is he's largely unknown. Here. He is underdog. Now, you used to fight and you were used to the spotlight you were always there, and you would thrive in those situations. But if you're a guy like rocky, and you're not used to the kind of media attention that he's getting what kind of advice, would you give him before a fight of this magnitude? I spoke with him yesterday. Rocky, and he seemed pretty pretty composed. I mean, this is huge. Huge especially for him. But he seems to be pretty calm. But you don't know that and he won't know that until he inches that rain, and when he CV, and it feels the energy in the just the attitude thing. And power. It's gonna be it's going to be a non opener. We just have to see how he reacts to that. He's a tall guy. He's a really tall guy. Heavier guy over guy. But let's see if you know the question is can you use it will use that? We take his time. What are you height and reach advantage? Make them make them harder holiday hit. We're talking to Leonard Ray. He's got that advantage in height in reach. He actually towers over canal. Oh, let me change up on you for one minute. There was this piece in the Wall Street Journal in October that was really powerful. And it was a story about from the time when you were ten years old and some friends were Niro roaring creek in Maryland. Oh my God. Ray what happened next for those? Who do not know that story? I was you know, I I lived in Maryland at the time, and there was a creek right near the McDonald's restaurant, and I remember going over to have a big rainstorm the place. The creek flooded and me and my boys I'm like Tanny Cam, maybe eleven we walked on the side because time I listen to him into the water to the creek. And the current was strong pushing down towards the train. I couldn't I couldn't swell, but I could survive, and I kept finding finding fighting pull myself up after times. And then I saw her Royal the water the power that water, and I never gave up on this is so weird. I mean, I can. I see. I see ACA here the water right now. Talk about it. And it's like it brings back memories that I stay alive and somehow some way by the grace of God, I pull myself up. And look down way down to feel like football. And so all these people and that was where I fell in. And I walked wars. And this man saw me and he picked me up and on his show. It took me off to my parents who were just going. I mean, they were crying everyone was crying and. Man. It was awful. It was awful. Even today. I could swim now naturally, but I don't I don't really like I love what I like water. But water course, it's terrible. You were ten years old. You nearly lost her life. You nearly drowned. And you mentioned that you just kept fighting kept fighting fighting. And when I think about you, and I think about your career. I mean, this is the way it was there were times where you were beating in the ring you see this reserve, you can always tap into a reserve that I don't know. I didn't think it was necessarily there. I think about the late rounds. And remember people listening you fought into later on when they still fought rounds thirteen through fifteen right against Thomas Hearns when seem like you're nothing left. How were you able to tap into a resort? Like that. When it looked like you had nothing left. You know what? Mommy said to me many many years ago. Those fight. You're talking about. When you Joe Frazier. It was like the closest thing to death. And I looked him kind of strange, and I found out what he met through fighting Tommy hers, especially in the first fight Eighty-one Durant in June of eighty Marvin hacker willful Benitez. It was there when you reached out to you reached out for that thing. We all have we all possess. It just can't activate it. And that's the difference. So rare when you talk to those fights, I mean, Benitez was amazing fighter. Hagler obviously goes without saying Thomas Hearns a hall of Famer Durant who you made quit is. I look back on your career. There are so many amazing moments. If I had to ask you to pick one, what is the moment, you are most proud of in the ring, and you're right. I mean significant, but the one that comes to mind is tummy a unification of the welterweight crown. September eighty Eighty-one. Tommy. My left eye was closed. It was like over a hundred degrees in rain. Everything was tired. But somehow, someway, I hit them a quarter. And I just. Shot. Avenues is something happened, and it's hard to really really articulated, but it's something special. We all have. And when I heard a guy her opponent. I had this thing automatically it clicks on intern. Josh you say. Ray Tommy Hearns. He might not be able to box like, you could boss, but his punching power was unbelievable. What was it like to get hit by that? Man. What I'm glad you asked. Tommy never hurt me in the first. He never hurt me in the first second Friday here at me numerous times. I I mean, I don't know because if you go back and watch the fight. The tape of the fight. You'll see the first round of moving project. Parts of the first bail. I looked around the ring. I walked around the ring after I who in here could beat Tommy hers. And you know, who it was I saw Mohammed Ali, and I'm and I moved like Muhammad Ali the first round. And was missing Missy couldn't connect test on the forehead just before barrow any hit me in retaliation that meant he was angry. He was may want to take I call my face and my head as they're taking place. Ray Leonard joining us for another moment or so Ray the thing that you are ahead of your time. You look Conor McGregor McConnell McGregor is he's won so many fights by getting under guys skin and getting in their heads. You're able to do this one of the toughest guys ever in Roberto Duran and made him quit. What about that mental war for how many times, did you think you would wanna fight before you even step between the ropes? I learned that from Durant. I learn how to get to hit from Durant. He told me that's irony. My teaching our first fight in June eighty and Montreal and he took me out of my game plan, and I stood toe. Although I had the hand speed and the foot movement to outmaneuver him because of things he said to me and to my wife, and I couldn't get back at him because he didn't have time. He wasn't speaking English. He taught me something and I use it against other guys. But Ray everything's changed so much, right? I mean, you're still boxing fan, you still associated with the sport. We finally ask you this. What do you make? And again, we were close in age. We came up the same time. How about a world where Oscar de LA Hoya and Dana white are going back and forth through the media. And then Oscar finally said, look if you wanna get in the ring man, I'll take care of it that way, what do you make of the battle between the two of these guys the beef. They're having right now. Well, I'm not I'm not too privy upon dick specifics are by the I've heard to the grapevine. But hey, you know, what? It's gotten huge shoot. I mean, a lot of my friends are fans of boxer and also just keep it going. You know, what is entertainment, and the fact that when Mayweather four. Mcgregor. Yep. I just knew at some point. Early on that he will get tired because it's a different type of conditioning with you know, going around to going five minute around. So whenever the and going twelve rounds and fifteen rounds, and it was like four fifth round look over at Connor, and he was not newsies winded. But I, but it was impressive instantaneous that he wants to do. He went that far. And then once some point may we have looked at me and winked because I was doing the commentary there.

He didn't fight her and you didn't fight Leonard guys were scared of him. Them then that of matches first Durant. First barclay. That was a good fight. A fun. And then my favorite match of all time heartbreaking loss and the poor guy. Just fell apart afterwards. You just mentioned a Meltzer Kayla. Two seconds away. What a what a heartbreaking loss. That was funny. He you know, Meljak had him beat and lost because he didn't been pay attention on the refugee Whitaker had him beat. And they called it a draw.

You and I man I tell you we need a pillow commercial. I I'd say. I'll be working overnight his fine. But sometimes you get on a bed, and it's like man this. Nobody's saying nothing to me. Real real quick before. I get to the jets you catch a new vendors trailer yesterday night me, oh, my son was asking me that I was going out the door and says he was gonna show it to me. I haven't seen it yet. A good. Yeah. I'm not gonna say, okay. It was good. It's a teaser. So that. But yeah, it definitely still west visit answer any questions. No. Now. Right. Okay jets. Yes. I don't understand a couple of things. I mean, first of all bowl still for whatever reason is not announcing the quarterback, which I just don't get. I mean, it's almost like he's shoveling the dirt onto the great thing. There's a cut earlier that that Schumer says that oh db has acquired issue, but he's going to play. Donald practicing. All we I'm not sure what you what come on either either. He's got an infection or you just you just jerk and the media around me. I just don't now you've got your Darryl. He's not gonna play for the rest of the season. I mean, it's just. I'd like to say the door, whatever the heck they want to. But I mean, I'm not even sure that's the case on it. I really don't know what's going on over there. And that in that office slash, you know, it almost seems like they flip the script and glass. Four games the exhibition season. We all know what this guy's gonna play. He's only gonna play water. You know, we'll see if we can get third string quarterback in. It's like you say he's making all those statements and that you would make in the beginning of the season is your fifth round draft choice gonna play. Well, we're not sure yet if it's late would try and get him in. And that's that's what it sounds like. Yeah. I just don't. I mean, everyone agrees that he should be playing just to get, you know. Right. First of all he's been off for a few weeks. I want to get the kinks out. But in the experience, I mean, I I just don't. If he's practicing any should be okay to go, unless you unless there's a legitimate reason for him to be, you know, still hurt on it, which I haven't heard anybody mentioning right by their sold put them in there. I just don't get. It is driving me nuts. I I it's kind of a point where it's like the season already get him outta here along with whatever else needs to go and start over if they said, we did another x Ray. And we find out the other hairline fracture in his foot. So he's out for the year. Fine. Okay. Well, at least you got something. Right. Even you know that that's something people understand you don't want them out there. It's the doctors say is not career-threatening not putting a screw in his foot. He'll be fine. All right. But this last week you said he could have played, but he didn't get the reps. Okay. This year. He gets this week against the reps. And you still not sure we're going to talk about it. What Sunday what at six o'clock in the morning over coffee. Well, that's it. I mean, what does it have to be a game time decision? I mean, stop pretending to be check. Close the bell. And even he know the only thing he doesn't do his injury reports. No. Just just just announced that you're gonna play him already and get it over with. And then that's it. You know? So anyway. And enjoy the rest of your weekend at Tony, right, man. Thank you. I don't understand. I mean. So you're gonna wait till last minute and say mccown is going to be the starter. And the bills are gonna go. Oh my God. What do we do? Now. It's like it doesn't matter. You could've you could've announced Donald on Monday. And the bills have been okay. You can announce it on Sunday the bills go. Okay. But there's no need to do it on Sunday. I just I don't understand it either. Let's go to Larry in Long Island Larry on the fan. Hey, what's up? How you doing tonight? All right. I got boxing kind of question. But before I say the guy's name. I want to give props. He was on his way to become my opinions are becoming a household name. He was a young kid who had like it was back. Then from what I remember? It was a tragic situation Gerald McCullough McClellan, Gerald McClellan. Yes. What happened today? I mean. I felt I vaguely remember you put a boxing. I said Dan this kid kinda got a bum deal. I think he got sick or something. He got got hurt in a ring brain. The brain. Yeah. And I remember I remember I it needs twenty four hour care. He never. Remember, I was I was watching the fight and my brothers because he had Showtime, and I wanted to see it and a went down. And I'm like, you know, you're a tough guy. What are you going down for you went down because he was seriously hurt. Got up and that was it. But the fact I'm affect I'm gonna look it up. I don't I haven't heard his name mentioned a long-time outta sight outta mind. When somebody gets hurt, you know, boxing will step up, but only for so long. You know was always hoping that his quality of life turned out. Okay. You look like a kid I Nigel Benn. But the I mean, he was I mean, he was a big time puncher big time. Was that in the nineties or early two thousand ninety s it was ninety five. Oh, wow. Okay. That's what I remember. All right. That's pretty much it. That's all I wanted to find out about. But thanks a lot arriving. He it's funny. He knocked out Julian Jackson who just went into the hall of fame. This week Julian Jackson, I'm looking twice. He was beat John Mugabe you lose to. Yes. He lost Dennis Milton from the Bronx. By KO and Ralph ward. Rattled off a whole bunch of wins. And the nice who've been fight that was that was February twenty fifth nineteen ninety-five. Let's go to Gary and cleans Gary you're on the fan. Tony how you think the next you're gonna do this year? Looking for a lottery pick, probably oh, all right? They don't their work in progress. Like the nets should win tonight. Because I think the nets have been suffering some really tough losses. They always talk about ABC always be closing. They can't seem to close the game. And they won tonight, and they closed it. If you will because Toronto Mr. last shot, so okay, but they play hard. And they just you know, they don't know how to close the games the Knicks, just it's. They'll still score a win here and there, but you saw what happened. I mean. I I wasn't watching the game. You're the my my wife, and I went out to dinner said I don't watch the knick game. And the funny thing is I was in a restaurant. It wasn't a sports bar but had a whole bunch of TV's up. There was not a knick game to be seen on TV. They didn't want to ruin anybody's dinner now. And I'm putting that on and you find out later it lost by twenty eight. Neil akina. I'm sorry. I don't I don't I don't I don't think talented at all. Defense is overrated. He has no offense and in this day and age from seven footers to to shooting guards. Everybody's shooting a three and his mechanics. I mean, he's not in Monaco false has category just can't shoot. And that's fine. Guys play ball. But they could do other things you can hit the men rates jumping you can run. You can run the offense. He's got issues. And I I would be surprised. They move them. I'm gonna believe what fishtail says he's in my holster. I'll be you know, I could still use them.

"One studios in New York at halftime right now at Wembley in a huge huge turnover for the Tennessee titans in the red zone chargers. Get a big interception, and they hold onto a ten to six lead. We are at halftime right now. At Wembley coming up this week on Monday night football game that potentially could be attract meat is the Atlanta Falcons. Does the New York Giants? Now, Atlanta a team that has certainly put up offense of numbers. The giants have been put up as many numbers, but they do have one superstar who has been a revelation early this year the number two overall pick in the draft saquon Barkley at Penn State has accounted for more than one hundred yards from scrimmage in each of the giants. I six games this year and last week on Thursday night football. He looked like a superstar in the making. However, when I talk with saquon this week, you have to imagine somebody who's competitor. Like, he is is not exactly happy about how things have gone so far this year. So far, no. Station or on his team is happy with a five star. But you know, being competitor in your mentality and doesn't change if you're up forty or if you're down forty you still have that insane. Killer mindset and continue grinding teamwork. You know, we've been down a lot of games. And we shown that we have a lot of fighting just couldn't finish. And I mean, we have that fight in nature and find ways to finish out games. I actually think we can we can turn season around. You have got an opportunity to be around some guys who have done some things in this game ally. Manning has been a Super Bowl MVP a couple of times. Odell Beckham junior is one of the most breathtaking talents in the National Football League. What is it that you and clearly there's been controversy there. That's one of the things you got to have to turn away from. What's it been like to be around veteran players like that who've been around the block a couple of times in the NFL? Yeah. I mean, I I wouldn't really say there there's controversy there. Not think some some things people say can be taken into wrong way. But I think the relationships that we have in Rome and the barn that we is very high right now. But. Veterans in those leaders, and you know, wanted it makes you want to elevate your level play elevate the way you work on the you see how talented Odell is. So you wanna elevate your play. There. You see how great leader in a way allow works. Makes you want to elevate your work officer would also too. You know, we got so much talented people team. And you know, obviously, everything's not going away. We would like to go. But we just gotta continue to believe in each other and continue to work and push each other talk with the New York Giants saquon Barkley people have pointed to you as being a potential leader for this team. And as a rookie that can't be the easiest thing in the world to do. How do you go about doing that? Without you know, feeling like, you know, I'm a rookie. I might be stepping on Santos here being myself. You know, deputy toes doesn't even cross my mind because everyone has the right to say something I've you have to earn a little bit more wrap things so far. K myself the way I've worked in my field has has you know, kind of put me in a position. And you know, I wanted to be early on a young age be leader. That's what I wanted to establish myself in NFL, and I been leading since cancer be completely honest. Everyone just leads in different ways, we have so many leaves on his team that continue to watch continue in at my career could continue to go on to become a better leader, you have drawn comparisons in the style of play in the lack of end zone celebrations in the moves you make on the field to Barry Sanders. And I think it's it's kind of ironic that people were making these comparisons. Because wasn't he one of your childhood idols was one of my favorite players, and I love the way care himself. And I've seen people saying I'm being compared to please. Berries fantasy you know that that's such an honor. 'cause you know, you're my talent away cared himself. But I'm nowhere near close to playing tennis. Barry Sanders is beyond his world. But I'm thankful for those compliments. But I definitely want to put those those columnists arrest. Someone asked you if you're not a football player. Would you have played basketball would you have run track? And you said that you probably would have been a boxer. I never late was like a real real boxer. But then I went into the gym Khotan. My dad spot with a couple of people before at a young kid. And that's something that I could see myself doing in the future when I was younger, but I just had a love and passion for the game with football. And. From my dad's just watching the games. And I'm watching the jets play just always being a fan of football. So kind of just over but. That that happen. I think Boston if I those to try I think boxer property. Beat a sport. But I'm waiting six foot. So I mean, I probably wouldn't make it. When you think about it? The guy's got a forty one inch vertical. Leap he might have been just fine playing basketball, his great uncle was Iran Barkley who. You may remember at one time beat Thomas Hearns, but the giants pretty happy that this guy's just playing football right now and play he is he has been marvelous and also kind of a calming influence on a team kind of lives inside a.
