"And laugh the whole night. A great time. Last fan question at langan dot Jeremy. Our triple these names. Better defense. Wide men are test prime years. Fuck. I can answer that. I have to go run. I'm confident that. Dennis was definitely the better rebounder. But defender, it's not even close. Ron is that Ron got one through 5. But so was robbing early member Robin was guarding magic, then he was also guarding the centers, like, okay, he was going to imagine magic 6 9. Ron was going guards, right? Small guards. Real Hamilton, chasing him off screens. I don't think there's probably could have done that. No. I agree. But rebounded by far. Rodman was a great player on the defensive end, but to me, I don't think I've ever seen anybody run our tests on the defensive end from a guard position. I mean, Tony Allen is another great wing defender, but as far as Ron is strength, how strong his hands are, how fast his hands are and then once you got by him is still not over. Grant's coming from behind pause to get you. And take that ball, so I would definitely say too great, but I'm gonna have to go with our test. Just imagine Gary Payton at 6 8 two 80. And doesn't eat nothing but grass and nuts and leaves. It doesn't lift weight to just use his bands. That's it. One of the greats. And works at Best Buy do the season. I think that's it, right? All right. We'll appreciate your fan questions, man. Keep sending them. We'll keep

"Boiling down to two players right now guys and that my two players are Mark Gasol and Zach Randolph. Has to be the greatest player in franchise history. And I went back and forth with these guys you know, of course Mark Gasol had the defensive player of the year award, a little bit longer career with the team, but to me, the greatest era of Memphis Grizzlies basketball, not counting what we've got going on right now in the jar. That grindhouse era with Gasol with Tony Allen with my Conley, and I feel like Zach Randolph just embodied everything that that team and that culture was about. So for that reason, I went with Zach Randolph debo as the grizzlies. I gotta say, it's only a couple of years in, but it probably should be ja, right? I mean, like I said, like I said yesterday with the bucks ten years from now. Whoever does this list, it'll probably be Josh. So I saw job play 5 times live this year and I never saw him play once in Memphis. Like I'm obsessed with this man. He is honestly on the list of top 5 athletes you would pay top dollar to see play live in all of sports. He is worth it is an experience. I remember there was an old NBA superstars tape. They always talked about how when you paid to see doctor Jay, he wanted to give you one moment that you said, that's why I paid my money. I got my money's worth. I saw that. And John does that time Steve, you 5 moments. I think every performer would probably share that belief. But the problem is you got to start to go there and do it. And I don't like that he played less than 60 games. I don't like most of the fact that the team went something like 22 and two in his absence. Right. I don't like the jaren Jackson's not going to be ready till January or so. So they're going to have an interesting season

turn 90 And maybe he's still alive He may be because he was on the art laboe shows until the least fairly recently But I think he was born August 13th 1932 So yeah hopefully you still with us All right be nice to actually see him again So what do we have from Franken Naperville Welcome to WGN radio Hey rally First time caller Oh thank you Sure I'm guessing most people or some people save money That's a great answer It's not right but that's a well thought out answer I don't know what the percentage is Thanks for trying to do it again I will Thank you so much The only thing I'm sure is that usually when it comes to saving money the two are not married to each other Yes I've known more people where one of the spouse is just going through everything and the other spouse is spending saving like crazy So in this case it's not spending or saving 25% of Americans are good at this 40% of Americans are bed at it and 35% just don't do it What do you think 888-876-5593 Detective chuck is in South Carolina Hey chuck what's up Hey What's going on I can't believe that man from Chicago That's smart guy You lead me to the punch man I'm telling you I started dialing up as soon as I heard it That's one of my favorite songs I've requested it a couple of times I don't know if you remember in the past Yes I played it That was one of my requests but anyway yeah I guess it was Scotty that did me and I guess anyway what I told John is maybe that was Tony Allen in the champs right Yes it was Maybe you could play something else by them or the flip side of that or something Well okay or my favorite Tony Allen no one I don't know if I know that Oh yeah I had to play that That would be good But I also have it when he was with a lion He did that Yeah of the night owl What would be the flip side of that one Oh God On the original specialty flip side was oh gosh check yourself wasn't Let me think about this again Why don't I know this He had some stuff on Aladdin but I keep thinking of check yourself baby but it wasn't So I will think and was night out late 1958 or so roughly Is 55 and that was the problem with it It would have been a big hit if it hadn't been 55 But yeah the flip of that I think was just I and he wrote it It's just the letter I yeah Yeah But I don't know what the proper term is not cadence but the way he varied his voice in that was that was that done electronically or is that what he said That's just him Really Yeah absolutely Yeah I can still remember that song being played at the teenage dances at the philharmonic hall and that some bouncing off the walls when they turned up the volume with his voice that was one of the great great songs everybody kind of waited for every Friday night Yeah terrific song and like I said that would have been a big Hot 100 record but it was right released right as the Hot 100 wasn't existing yet so it did get some R&B action but not really And yet I as the flip side I can look for that too I think I've got it on shellac Yeah well see it must have it must have had a shelf life at least with the DJs because I mean I came into the high school dancing scene in 57 58 59 It was my heyday and Pittsburgh and they were still playing that which was kind of a classic I think and at least in the Pittsburgh area was really probably played porky plated all the time It was one of those sounds that you never get out of your mind Absolutely And our art laboe loved him and put him on those original sounds oldies but goodies album So it could have come from that too And what was his what was his length of career and what was his final deal For Tony Allen Yeah Well as far as I know like I say he's turning 90 this year and he may still be alive But he was recording in 55 and he was doing things on his own not stuff that hit but things on his own as late as like 88 I'll have to do some research on that and try to get some get somewhere I can play them because I really like to sign and then did he keep the group together too pretty much No he was in half a dozen different groups He was in the chimes the furies the Lions the champs as you know the Twilight the wonders So no it was a lot of different people but he was a mainstay in LA and like.

"Know, local celebrity. What do you want me to say? I've never paid for a meal in my life. I'm not to free meals. But if anyone else wants to give me some free food. You know, people want to talk about the grizzlies. Everywhere you go and I would say the energy now, this is, it's a little bit different just because, you know, that two dozen 11 team, which is started the whole thing, they knocked off the spurs and as an 8 seat. You know, they knocked off the number one, and that's how it all started with them knocking off that team. And 11 then just it started 7 years of success. But even until batty a hit the shot in game one against the spurs, they had never want to play off game as a franchise. All we had known is disappointment, been to the playoffs three times lost all 12 games. And when they ended up playing that first team of beating them, then they took over and everybody, you know, but until that moment, like we were talking about earlier, nobody really believed that they were going to knock off the spurs. It was like, jeez just don't get swept again. We can't be the only team that's gone. Oh, it's 16. We thought they were good. People have a much different feeling about this team and the feeling is because of ja, right? That hope and that anything is possible type of thing where it's like, you now envision that was always catch the right matchups. Who knows? And they did go to the west finals. One of the years. But you always knew that when you look through the history of the NBA, there's a superstar on those teams. End of story. Even if it's just one like it wasn't Dallas, there's a superstar on those teams that wins. We tried to talk ourselves into. Maybe we could be like those old pistons. They didn't really have a superstar, but they had an accumulation. I mean, that was such a abnormality, right? And you look back and you realize how abnormal that was. You've got the guy. And that's what's different about this one is that the fan energy, everybody knows we've got the guy. That's the guy that can be the best player on a title team. And so that is a different energy. It's a different energy because zebo and Tony Allen these guys like they could go to roose Chris and eat dinner, you know, and people will be like, hey, love you. Take a couple pictures, whatever. Maria can't go anywhere. He can't go anywhere. He can't go anywhere in the country. He can't go anywhere in the world right now. You just tell ja. You tell ja, right? When you see him, then when that signature pair drops, oh boy, all right? Then I got a couple Young Bucks 'cause I was first on the parade. I was on a bandwagon first with the signature shoe. So you just tell him that. It's gotta be the All-Star Game, right? They can't have them going out that he's starting the game. He can't go out there and like Katie's or kairi's. They've already done the campaign for him. Come on, man. People don't even understand. I could. And I wasn't even an all star. I could go out in anything. Like regular all stars could not superstars, but you need your own shit. Get that manager. Hashtag hashtag stop fucking playing with roger. Where's chick is real? Man, it just needs a shoe, bro I'm telling you, he's like he's that type of I believe I'm with everything verno just said. I believe him to be that and he's only getting better. That cat is only ascending as a star. Have there been rumblings about it at all? Oh, yeah. He's getting a shoe. Yeah, he's getting a shoe. Is that like public information? Is this grisly sources? Oh, no. I mean, they filmed the commercial on the street. Okay, cool. They already did us. That's cool. Says who campaign? The shoe is on the way. Look, he is, I think he's in the top ten in Jersey sales. He was just second in fan voting media and players. All three, so everybody agrees, you know, and is a good time for us there. His risen. Oh, he'll sell a boatload of shoes. Even just his name, you know, I got the new jazz. Oh yeah. It's just a great name for a sneaker. Raja doesn't do the sneaker app shit. He doesn't do that line shit. I think he might. Would you stand in line for some air jobs or would you or we need to get the package in any stock fucking playing with you? I don't stand in line for anything. I'm not no, man. Come on, dog from where you came from, bro, that's got to be accessible. People got to be able to touch that. We ain't no lines enough. Nike flood the market. Dog, let's get them jazz out there. The fuck that exclusive, the only selling 7 pairs, you got 10 million mofos trying to get the shoot. Stop playing.

"Ball and I athletically just can't get in and I wind up on your forearm. And you fall, that's not dirty. You've taken that risk. You've launched yourself. The game is the game. It is what it is. And I feel terrible. You know, again, like for Alex Crusoe, I'm not, but it is the game. Again, it's happened to me. Like, what I look like trying to dunk on you, like, you get my forearm when I try to bang on you when I come down and land on my wrist, bro hey, bro yeah, it's funny 'cause you ask it's fun and there's still OGs around the league there's always gonna be OGs around the league and when I see people little older than me, I always make sure I PEEP game and they always talk about how the league is getting soft. How it's getting softer and softer, you know, every year. And I think there's some truth to that for sure. I mean, I don't discount it even during my time covering a league. There's always a rule to make sure you have the offensive player gets all the love and you know they get a clean look. There's no hand checking. There's all these things. And you get these and I know I'm going off on a tangent here and you get these high scoring games that quite honestly are pretty boring. People like the theater of basketball. They like people like heart fouls. I don't know if I don't know if people realize that from a consumer perspective, but like yo, people like heartfelt, they like hard nosed games. But my question, when did you see a change? When did you start seeing things? 'cause it was a gradual change from the 80s to the 90s to the 2000s to now. When did you see your iteration of that change to where it's like, oh, I don't know if we can have these are too hard fouls. This is too much for the game. I don't know that I haven't. And exact moment in time, I think when the generation when I left the league, there was still guys in that were subscribing to no layups if we, we can not allow them to lay it up, we're not gonna allow to lay it up. Yeah. You know, you had your Kevin Garnett to the world, even Channing fries. Dudes that were even names that you wouldn't ordinarily think of that were not going to just let you come in there and lay it in their face and take it out of the take it out of the net. You had to Tony Allen's of the world defensively, you know, that they were getting down and I don't know, man, when that generation kind of phased out with all the offense that came in, it did become, but okay, when I really, really knew something had changed when I started watching more youth basketball as I transitioned into my post NBA kind of life. And I started watching these elite camps. You know, my sons would show me when they were younger and it'd be the best two players instead class at this camp and they'd be going at it. And I'd be watching and it would be all offense. And what the game would devolve into at these camps, which I could never understand because everyone at the campus paid to be there. But what it's devolved into now is Logan gets the ball and he gets to try to cook Raja because Logan's number one in a class of Rogers number two in the class. Boom, ball goes through the net. No one else touches it. Now Raja comes down and he just tries to ISO and cook Logan. None of them no one's playing any defense. No one else is touching the ball, and that's just what this is going to be. And so at that point I said, oh, okay. That's it, right? We're just, you know, the game has changed in that regard. And I'm going to take it a step further and I know this isn't a football pod. But if you if you see 7 on 7, and this is what really bugs me out. Because my kids play 7 on 7 football. These kids get what they call moss or blurred. Now and someone will catch a touchdown pass on them. You know, you did your job as a corner or whatever, and the kid made a good play. And now the entire opposing team will run over, throw their hands in the air around you and start like dancing over you. But no one fights. No one fights Logan. No one fights. And so I said to my sons, I'm like, yo, if that happened to me, I will punch his ass right in the mouth. And both of my sons were like, oh, dad. Oh, no, man, nobody does that. And I said, well, I'll tell you like this. If it happens to one of y'all, and you don't fight his ass, you have to fight me. So just know that. Check this out, man. I'm saying this 'cause I'm aligned with you. I'm just saying this because you speak it to the guy. Yeah, no, I ate myself. But you do bring up an interesting point though, which is the we need to bring up the youth sports. A lot of these guys are commodities now versus at such an early age. They're getting we were talking about offline about kids getting offers at like 12, 13, but I was like, I don't even. We know regular 12, 13 year olds ain't really like, they're not, they don't know what the fuck is going on or they they they don't know. They don't have an even general understanding of what they want to do in life. You feel me, but I say all that to say like when they are commodities of such a young age, what you gotta do, you gotta protect that bag, right? So that means and you're like, you know, you got the overtime and you got all these other you got back when I was growing up, was there, it's fine. You got all these people trying to now make money off of youth athletes. And what does that mean, right? That means, you know, what's better to give views on YouTube? It's this one on one matchup. We've seen we've seen LaMelo Ball since he was 14 years old. What did we see all the songs? It wasn't no fundamentals. It was like, nah, bro I'm gonna pull up from half court and then I'm gonna look at your face and I'm gonna laugh at you. But you know what we don't hear about is that, you know, his team didn't win the state title. But that's another thing. But what I'm saying though is when you have these guys that are being commodities at such a young age, the other side of it is you don't want you don't know the fundamentals in two men, you gotta get mental toughness on the floor, and that means getting your shit blocked, playing a team game and doing all the things. I think fundamentals and all that stuff has eroded as a result..

"Is next in seventh by a miles ahead in eighth and montauk traffic. Is the trailer in ninth. In the opening quarter was run in twenty. Two seconds on the inside is lexa tony inbetween horses. Strike power and on the outside is special reserve. It's three lengths back to mischievous alex who is racing in fourth followed by whitmore and forensic fire the half in forty four and two seconds here is special reserve with a narrow lead over lexus. Tonia went moore's gaining ground down at the rail then come strike power with a sixteen to the finish. It is special reserve on the inside alexa. Tony and then wet more. Lexa tony and comes back on the inside her. Where did you job said in grade. One vanderbilt. How 'bout lexa. Tony ian think we talked about him a little bit on friday show just because he certainly horse who's in the hunt sometimes You know had that upset win last time churchill. But he's i remember he did. He scored a pig price at some big race before that i forget where it was But you know he. He runs a few bad ones runs. Great in the churchill downs already almost one the church house forty six to one. He got beat by flagstaff in that last jump that was kind of a wild finish that day but then he runs a complete no show in the met mile and this time a lot of people were very confused by the speed that he was displaying down toward the inside as he went out and got the lead but then i think we saw twenty two seconds flat. You know. it didn't seem it didn't seem all that crazy right. Like that's solid speed earlier. Allowance horses Go in six months twenty two and two so they were certainly go and but they weren't you know wasn't crazy right They went twenty two and change earlier on in dirt race the first race of the day so it was quick but not insane. And i guess the reason i bring that up is because you know to starts back in that churchill stakes. He was a half length off at twenty one and four. Now durrie week. If i remember right it was pretty salty. Quick there but regardless like he's a horse who can go somewhat faster early on and if you watched the writers the ones who broke sharpest it was really only strike. Power and lexa. Tony were kind of asked for speed. Mischievous alex they were. They were content to just sit back off. The pace special reserve was kind of doing it on his own. I really thought turning for home like he was gonna win for fun and similar to how i talked about with the central quality. How he was the outside horse that came down to the inside horse. That was still battle away. It was just. The only difference was alexa. Tony allen had little more left and turn. That went away wins and returned seventy dollars a big upset win. You had a middle pick five that ended in this race. The pay thirty four thousand pick. Fives were Were paying mostly plentiful obviously Even though the one at Saratoga was ten thousand five hundred that cross country one was twenty six thousand six hundred ninety nine for a for fifty cents so there was some Some big pants. And like i said that's even with essential quality tied into it and so the horizontal wagers you. There's ways to it but you gotta you find your prices somewhere else. You know if you're if you're if you're involved in a sequence with essential quality and you look down your ticket and most of your horses are first and second choices like. Why are you even bothering you might hit. But you're probably gonna lose money or break even or baby. Just make a tiny bit. And if you're that desperate just make a win. Bet two to five. I mean you shouldn't don't do that but you get what i'm saying like you know you only got to win one race. That's the case. But i don't know we always talk about the stuff and we'll continue to talk about because it's fascinating but like i said i mean there's there separators there's horses in these pick. Fives and stuff that you know. It's nice when you get a six to one or you know. I mean what's his name. cross-border six to one. He's your fifth choice in that race but he's somewhat logical choice. Maybe that's a race because of essential quality that a lot of people are spreading in alexa. Tony at thirty four to one the longest shot and erase especially race with seventy five favorite but also kind of a clear second third choice right. I guess for choice to frenzy fire. But there's a lot of people that were one two three or four deep in that race. And so you know if you get a horse like montoc traffic. Who's thirteen to one. I think you still knock out a fair number of tickets but because of essential central quality. There's a lot of people that are going to be spreading just a little bit more and more and so each big step up the ladder can get away from everybody in kind of logical spread legs and hits a horse just a lot of people. Don't have it really really knocks out a ton of tickets. And i think that alexa tony allen kind of did that because the the start of that lee pick five was high opinion who was four to one Third choice but again. Beating a sub two-to-one favourite beating a kind of a clear second choice as well and sometimes those horses can play a little bit bigger and You know. I am endlessly fascinated by sequence stuff. So we'll We'll talk about that here on the program. There was another thing that happened. I think it was the first race of the day yeah. Hp moon khaleda got debt. Horse was scratched at the gate for markings not matching what the horse was given so. It's so funny that this came up. Because i was i was given a question for the. Qa wasn't it was just a regular email or asking about the email. Said they'd been at parks and they noticed that they weren't doing the the lip lifting anymore like they used to have the tattoo lip and they weren't doing that anymore but they were kind of doing. It'll scan thing. Well yeah a lot of horses have certain age now. Micro-chipped and so the the days of the lifting part of the micro and processes like horse has papers that go to the race off stuff. There's information about their their marks. And i don't know how it is all the time but what i've always seen is. The identifier has a sheet and they might now have an ipad but whatever they have. It has the horse's name the tattoo or the chip or whatever but it also has identifiable marks and ways to make sure that said horse is said horse They they didn't So at least got actually tweeted after where she says Hp mood has some pretty identifiable scars and markings. He was scratched gate because the white on his heels was not on his papers. She posted a picture of the white on his heels With these scars which he has these very visible almost like birthmarks or something like On throughout his Con i'm so bad at horse like physiology torso You know she says. I'm not sure how his identity was in any question or why horse. I didn't see this. When the i did him in the morning because they do go around in the morning to do it as well and so You know she tweeted following up heartbreaking for our horses his connections. That put so much into today we'll regroup correctness paperwork and try again but Man that was like there was.

"Spending some service south of Washington because of security concerns. Northeast regional trains will end their trips, said Union Station on Tuesday and Wednesday. So what can we expect from President Elect Joe Biden's speech on Wednesday. Ken Walsh, White House and political analyst for U. S News and World Report has some thoughts. Speechwriters have turned out to be quite good. I think his remarks recently have been designed to sues the country, but at the same time, placate the base of his party, the liberal base that really wants to take out after Trump as much as possible. And so I think Biden really is committed to this idea of healing and comedy and working together with People. Ah, lot of that will depend on how much the Republicans worked with him in Congress. I don't think the sides of their good there, but I think that's going to be the main theme of his inauguration. Let's see if we can work together.

I would say the last thing he's been really clear about this is the election wants to be the press. For all Americans, So it's not about Democrats and Republicans. For him. It really is about representing the interest of all Americans. If confirmed, some of Biden's picks would be first, like the first woman to lead the Treasury Department and the first African American deputy Treasury secretary, the first African American woman to lead the Council of Economic Advisors and the first woman of color and first South Asian American to head the Office of Management and Budget as well as the first Latino to lead health and human services was Anderson w.

I have to ask Mr President. Should we get to call you his head of the president? Delaware State University? Um, why not just move the ceremonies to the rotunda That's been done in the past. I covered when they're for Ronald Reagan and cold weather. It seems more secure and in a way would also be more poignant, considering the scenes from inside the Capitol last week. Well, I think you know that the inauguration is now considered a national special security event. And we're working directly with the U. S Secret service to make sure that it is a safe. It's possible just as an aside, President elect Biden, somatic to his campaign has always led Which safety and security of first you'll note that many of our inaugural activities are virtual, But we do think it's important of two honors. Some of those grand traditions of you know the most notably that swearing and in the West front off the capital and, as you already have reported Oh, there have been law enforcement professionals, particularly on the military, particularly National Guard on the ground guarding Washington generally and the capital. Very intently over the last week or so. So we feel comfortable. We also have a lot of confidence and our law enforcement and secret service professionals on are working closely with him along with our joint committee on inaugural. We've we've heard lawmakers say very plainly that they fear for the safety of some of their colleagues. Do you have any concerns about the safety of elective representatives will be there. Attending the ceremony Wednesday. I feel very strongly that this will be a very secure and safe event. We have taken every precaution as I get as a said before very much believe, and I have every confidence in the U. S Secret service on the professionals that they're working with, so we feel really good about that Most. Most importantly, though, much of the activities across, uh The inaugural events from BTS right up and through the 20th our virtual So we are being quite so awful. We obviously aren't discouraging people from coming to D.

The most serious crimes, including assaults on police officers, more significant felony charges still to come. NPR's Carrie Johnson joins us now, Carrie, Thanks for being with us. Good morning, Scott Water, the latest on the cases that have already been brought more than 300. People are under investigation, and prosecutors have already filed criminal charges against about 100 people. Some of them are pretty serious. There's an Arkansas man caught on tape allegedly beating a police officer with an American flag pole. There's another case involving two off duty cops from Rocky Mount Virginia. One of them had allegedly posted online about their actions inside the Capitol, then deleted the post, and authorities also charged two retired firefighter from Pennsylvania. He allegedly threw a fire extinguisher that hit a policeman in the head. Now the investigation into the death of Capitol police officer Brian Sick. Nick is ongoing. The FBI has found some video of people around him on January 6th, and they're doing some interviews already. Carrie. There is so much video of this insurrection, people taking pictures of it and of each other. Some of the images seem to show people dressed in military gear. Where they just plain dress up or did they plan something military style? What we do have pictures of people dressed in camouflage walking in lines toward the Capitol building in there also some Facebook videos of people discussing how they're going to approach the building. And there are military veterans who've been charged already, including a Texas man named Larry Brock, who actually got inside the chamber. The FBI says he was carrying what looks like a detention cuff. The question is where he and others going after members of Congress or vice president Mike Pence for now, the Justice Department says. They have quote, no direct evidence of kill or capture teams, but they're still looking at what kind of preparation and planning there was. Prosecutors are pretty careful about how they described all this. Here's Michael Sure when the acting U. S attorney here in D C. And that is a tier one top priority for both the U. S attorney's office and our federal law enforcement partners to see again whether there was this overarching command and control and whether there were these organized teams. That were organized to breach the capital. And then perhaps try to accomplish some type of a mission inside the Capitol carry a lot of Americans, as we know are wondering. How could this happen at the Capitol, which we've always thought is so well guarded. How could police have been so out of place? Every day. It's more clear. There were plenty of indications of trouble in advance, and police were simply not prepared. Now. Federal watchdogs called inspectors general have announced a big investigation. They're asking what different parts of the government knew. And when that will include the FBI, the Pentagon, the Homeland Security Department in interior, those investigations can take a while. Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's named a retired lieutenant general who was in charge after Hurricane Katrina to investigate what went wrong. Some security experts say we're going to need some kind of big independent commission like happened after September, 11th to really understand what happened. Carry forward. Let you go. You are near downtown D. C. Which, of course, is preparing for Joe Biden's inauguration in just a few days. What's it like to be there? So many street closures and Scott really the sounds of helicopters and sirens in the night and all day long, there's a real feeling of tension around here. Something I haven't felt since 2001. When we were dealing with the aftermath of the 9 11 attacks, and those Washington, DC snipers, too, So it's a little rough, Carrie, thanks so much happy to do it.
