"Will keep this move in the next step we got the Orlando Magic, you know, magic's never won a title, but they've had some great players out to Nick Anderson, penny Hardaway, Tracy mcgrady, basically came down the shack and Dwight Howard for the greatest Orlando Magic of all time. This was tough. I went with Dwight Howard, man. Just at his longevity with the team, three time defensive player of the year, that is nothing to sneeze at, should have been the top 25 all NBA selection. 25 times. I'm sorry, 75, yeah. So obviously Shaq could have been the guy here, led them to the finals as did the white. Dwight's longevity kind of gave it to him there and quickly will go with the Washington Wizards, brockman said it should be Michael Jordan. We twice at the age of 14. We can put Jordan on list, but you know guys a girl, the Perlman road, Jeff Malone, who was one of my favorite early 80s ballers, John wall. But then it comes down to Walt Bellamy, guys from that era. I basically came down to Wesson field, elvin Hayes, more or less flip a coin. Some people might say Wesson told lift the way he kind of didn't really have great success as a coach and GM maybe that hurt his legacy, but I went with Wesson as my greatest for Michael Adams, I liked Michael. This is the greatest bullet of all time. Jordan is the best wizard. Maybe we can all agree that Gilbert arenas is the best wizard of all time. It came down to elven Hayes and Wesson sold and I went with Wesley. I love your respect for the legends of the game. That's important, TJ. Well, I was in these conversations. I'll give you guys

"Before killer comes out here for hour number three, TJ, you did this so expertly yesterday. We're doing this once a day for the next 7 days because there's 8 NFL divisions. You have come up with the best player in the history of every team in the history of the National Football League. Yes. And we're doing a division by division. We did the AFC east yesterday. You came up with Bruce Smith, Tom Brady, Dan Marino and Joe Namath. Now in honor of Craig Kilborn, who is from the great state of Minnesota, the NFC north. I need NFL films music from you, Jay, go ahead, TJ Jefferson the floor is yours. All right, so continuing with this greatest player in franchise history. I'm gonna start off with the easiest one. That's Detroit Lions. I'm gonna go bury Sanders. That's a no brainer. It's a no brainer. For the Chicago airs also pretty tough, but I decided to go with sweetness Walter Payton for the packers. I mean, you had three quarterbacks to choose from. Over far and star just because I've seen Aaron Rodgers make passes, I don't think anyone else could ever make. The Vikings. Now Craig's here, he's a Minnesota Viking. You can ask Craig his opinion on this. It could have been Randy Musk, it could have been Adrian Peterson. It could have been Fran tarkington. I went with Alan page. You can go the purple people eaters, what Alan page did on the field. And then I know what you do off the field shouldn't count towards this. But then his career after the football just kind of added to it. But those are my picks right there for the NFC north. Alan page, because again, when we were coming up with this endeavor, you even asked yesterday, Chris is like, is there going to be all quarterbacks? Yeah, yeah. And I told you. And I'm like, you know what? You can go some franchise's defense. And I mentioned the Vikings is one of them. Alan page is not a bad, I mean, Carl Eller also is in the Hall of Fame. You could have gone in his direction. John Randall. You know what gave page Alan page the nod though, guys? Hall of Fame's in Ken, Ohio, right? Yep. Do you realize that Alan page once worked on the construction crew of the Hall of Fame? Do you know who helped also the foundation for it too, was Dan dierdorf? Really? Dear door also. Did that and made it into the Hall of Fame himself as well. Aaron Rodgers is the greatest packer of all time. I would have went Bart Starr, I think. I would have gone Bart star two, but, but Favre, I mean, Rogers is numbers are insane. Yeah. I mean, look, that was a career numbers are insane. That's what kind of put it over, 'cause my initial was Bart Starr. But I understand that you make name it the greatest jet of all time. Well, that was just a cover of great packers that there have been since then. And even at the quarterback position, it would be tough to name Bart Starr to this day as the greatest packer of all time. But you could still make that argument. And here's my argument for Bart Starr too. There are very few resume lines. In the world, quite like bark stars. MVP of super bowls one and two. Yeah. The ice balls. That's kind of like Neil Armstrong. I walked, I was the first to walk on the moon. You know what I mean? Like, go beat that resume line. All right. Right? I don't quite playing football in terms of going to the moon. But I'm just saying people like hitting the Super Bowl will forever be the American sports event. And he was the first MVP of the Super Bowl. And then was the first to go back to back. And he did it in the first two. After he had won a bunch of NFL champions. Correct. Correct. Correct. Correct. Look, if packers, like I said, that one was the toughest one. If you feel Bart stars there, throwing my hands up. I'm not going to argue. Anybody out there? And by the way, it could have very easily been Bart Starr. It just came down. To the fact that Aaron Rodgers I've seen do crazy stuff. I also kind of dig the fact that as we go about this over the next week, that you've named a current player. He might wind up being the only one. Oh, no, Brady is still a car. Brady still curve. No probably be at least. He'll be current player long after maybe Rogers has done it. All right, folks. Well, glad you liked Craig Kilborn. Craig Kilborn is here. Hour three in studio. Are we drinking? I don't have any alcohol. We got unless the magic 8 ball have something. We got broken skull weird in the fridge. I don't think Craig's first selection is beer. I agree with you. It's probably not. I think it goes martini. Actually, I think that is one of the I shouldn't say this out loud. I think that is one of the questions for life advice asking Craig. About. I was going to do how to unwind. I figured it was just obvious. Plus, you know, one of the reasons why I reached out to him, it's been three years since he was here. But also, he's a diehard fan of the association..

"Backs he's thinking a while rich. Thanks for bringing me back. You're welcome. You know, I honestly, I don't think. I haven't sensed any yet. Is it possible that happens? Yeah. But that's why I think it's so important. And we may never get the answer to this, right? But that's why I think how honest and forthright to Sean has been with the NFL and how honest and foresight deshaun has been with the browns is so incredibly relevant here. It could, I mean, the way these contracts are written, it could guarantee you in this contract, you know? I don't think that there's any possibility you just traded back to the trade gives void as you get sent back to the Texans because I mean, I think it was pretty clear. There was a lot going on here. And it's not like the browns, one into this. Blindly and this is all of a sudden coming out of nowhere. They knew the risk. The fact that more information can come out, we all knew that back in March. You know? So I don't think there's any chance that the trade gets voided, especially since the taxes have already used one of those draft picks. But could the guarantee you get voided? Based on what I know about NFL contract language, if Desean wasn't forthright with the browns about what could be coming about what was out there about what happened in any of these cases. Well, then that exists. And then on the lead level, if he was, of course, right with the lead, history tells us that the NFL comes down harder on guys who are not completely truthful with them. And the reason why this is the NFL lacks subpoena power. So if they want their investigations to have teeth, they have to create deterrence for people lying or misleading them. And so I think this thing for Desean personally gets considerably messier. If he wasn't completely forthright and honest with the NFL and the browns. And maybe the browns won't come down on him because he's the guy down and everything else. I certainly think the NFL will and maybe most of them. Albert, you're the man, have a great Father's Day weekend. I hope you get whatever joy from the weekend that you deserve. And let's chat, let's chat and July. Absolutely absolutely. Happy Father's Day to you and everybody on the show. All right, rich. Thanks, brother. Greatly appreciate it. That's our prayer, everybody. Right here on the rich eisen show. Okay, 8 four four two O four rich number two dial, we'll take your phone calls. When we come back here on the rich eisen show, before Tracy mcgrady joins.

"Jets? And the Lions? A team that just acquired a new quarterback. Denver Broncos, Broncos. 11 years for the jets 6 years for the Broncos. Who's more likely to end their playoff drought this year? Come on, man. Come on, man. Who's more likely the Denver Broncos are more likely to do that? Yes. Yeah, really? Yes, they are. More likely to do that. Russell Wilson is Russell Wilson. If you're asking me who's more likely to break their, their drought. That's literally what I asked for. It is a team quarterback by a guy who has a Hall of Fame trajectory, if not already a Hall of Fame resume. Who has a chip on his shoulder and also has incredibly talented receivers that I still need to see what it looks like. The jets are still putting it all together. And the Broncos have something already somewhat put together just add Russ, so. Come on, if it's a quarterback driven league, then that's what you got to go. But I still believe in the jets. And Robert sala is a guest on Monday's Richard. Rich eisen show. Richard Eisenhower. I just went that way. Because I was known as Richard when I started rooting for the jets, just like Todd, dick eisen. Hey, that's what's more likely. Nice, hold on. Hold on. Tracy mcgrady is here, right? Yes, can confirm. The last time I saw a T Mac? Oh, don't save it. I'll save it. For the people. And is Ashton involved? Ashton is involved. Tracy mcgrady, when we come back here on the rich eisen show, hoops, Hall of Famer, Tracy mcgrady. We're back here on our terrestrial radio network on the rich eisen show Tracy mcgrady of the basketball Hall of Fame that we've all heard of in Springfield mass and the ones basketball league, which we're going to talk about the founder of that right here in studio. So you are just about to say you think the warriors are going to go absolutely nowhere. If you look how their team is from here. Right now, I think Steph, clay, even draymond, I think those guys can come back next season. Yes. And only average like 30, 32 minutes a night. So they can be fresh in a playoffs. Correct. Reason being, you got camina, you got pool, you got Wiggins, you got the young kid wiseman. Yeah, he's coming off coming back. You got moody, you have 5 young guys. Don't forget to mitten also Gary Payton's second. He plays. So you have 5 or 6 and I don't know if he's going to be back next year. But if you keep those 5 guys, they bring those young boys back that can play 38, 40 minutes a night. Steph clay and draymond can just chill 32 minutes a night and then turn it on in the playoffs because the way they groom these guys. The player development, they're gonna be really scary. So I'll ask you the question of the day, which is Steph Curry's legacy where he stands on the old time. Greatness and things of that nature. I mean, there's no question he's one of the greatest players. If we're talking top, you know, top ten. I don't have enough information to take someone out to add Stefan. Yes. If he's not top ten, he's knocking on the door. I would say that. What about for point guards, although the man who hosts the show before us, Dan Patrick calls him a points guard, which I found interesting. Not really a point guard. No, he's not a he's not a Chris Paul. He's not a Magic Johnson. Draymond to me is more of the facilitator for that team. Yes. Steph is a different type of player, different type of point guard than those guys. I have him second all time behind magic. And when we talk about all time, the reason why I don't have him of magic look at magisteria, magic, the first 9 years, 9 out of his 12 years, he was in the finals, right? What he has, three regular season MVPs, he has 5 championships. He has 5 and MVP final MVPs. He has the all time assist, but his 11 all time assists per game, staff is right behind magic. I can't put anybody else ahead of Steph button magic. Except so if you just want to cut it off at a height, obviously you've got magic at that height and above and below its Steph. So what advice Tracy mcgrady would you give Jayson Tatum today? I would tell him to watch that series over and over and over all summer long and learn from it. So watch it over. Well in it is what you're saying. Well in it. And learn from it. I mean, that's the only thing you could do. Like, don't run away from it, right? Because it's only, you can learn from the film, what you did good in that series, and it was a lot of bad, learn from those bad and turn those into good. And I think he has the ability to do that. Why do you think he had the turnover issues? Where does it come from? It's just as simple as that. He's young, he's going up against a team that has all the experience. These guys have no finals experience. He's going up against a team that was really, really experienced. And he's inexperienced. He's 24 years old. He has a chance to be back next year. And so it's just as simple as did you ever dwell on something like that? Did you ever do what you're advising him to do, which is just listen. I've never played on a championship team. For me, it was, all right, how can I, how can I advance in the second round of losing every single year, you know, putting up great numbers, how can I be different coming back in the playoffs next year? And I used to watch series, you know, off season, how I could get better. I mean, that's what you do as a basketball player. You don't run away from, you know, a series that you lost don't watch it and learn from those because it's a learning tool. It helps you for the foreseeable feature. Tracy mcgrady here on the rich eisen show. So which young player do you look at in the NBA? And say that's the next Luca Luca. Luca is pretty damn good. He is. Yeah. I love watching Luger because Luca is not the fastest. He's not the quickest. He can't jump over a dollar. But skill wise, his skill level is off the charts. He knows how to control the pace of the game. He knows how to create space and get his shot off on anybody whether it's somebody that's bigger, stronger, quicker than him. He just knows how to play the game and control the pace. On the back end of careers then, what advice would you give harden right now? James Harden, Tracy mcgrady. To make basketball number one priority, make winning number one priority, make 76 is number one priority, right? Are you playing with the MVP caliber guy and Joel embiid? Who is, I think, has changed his mind frame on how he's approaching the game now and how he sees the game. And he wants to win. And I think if James can be, you know, that solid 20 and ten type guy that contributes every night for the sixers. I think there would be right there in the conversation as one of the best scenes in the Eastern Conference. Continue for a champion..

"His players feel the very same way. And his coaching staff feels the same way. So I feel good about Mike and it shouldn't be a part of a conversation right now as to where Mike is relative to rope or where he is relative to Patreon Payton. That shouldn't be there. I don't have that there any place in my mind. A full throated vote of confidence. Wow. All right, where are you going with the more likely? Hey guys, what's more likely the cowboys make the Super Bowl this year? Or Sean Payton is douses head coach in 2012. By the way, I wrote this before I heard the sound. It's Sean Payton's the head coach in 2023. That is what is more likely. I think Sean's one and done at Fox, I think the saints know it. I think everybody believes that the Miami Dolphins are ready to go in that direction based on all the reporting from Florida breard. Reports out of South Florida. I think he's going to be great on television. I think Sean Payton will be recharged and the question is, where is he going? And that's more likely than the cowboys winning it all this year. As you know, TJ, I have talked myself into saying the cowboys have taken a step back. And that the eagles, I'm talking myself into the eagles winning that division. So, that's the way we kick off what's more likely. What else you got over there, Chris? Hey, we heard what tyreek hill had to say about the chiefs and how they think they're offense, it's going to struggle without them, and he was underused, even though he led the team in catches, kind of a bizarre thing to say, but he was and the two is more accurate than mahomes. Yeah, he was kicking off a podcast and Patrick Mahomes admitted he was surprised to hear all those comments. So what's more likely the dolphins make the playoffs this year or the chiefs miss it? I think it's more likely that the dolphins make the playoffs chiefs aren't missing anything man. They are missed, they're gonna miss Tyree kill, but come on, dude. I think they will still make the playoffs. Thus it's more likely the dolphins make it. How's that? If you gave me a choice of which one was more likely to miss it, if we're going to stay in both of those cases, I would say it's more likely the dolphins miss it than the chiefs. So, in my homes and read and be enemies, I still trust. What else? A Panthers continued. A good one. By the way, did you see how we're changing topics? And the valley changed music. I've been doing that for weeks. I just noticed it. Got to say, let's go in here full.

"What? What more likely? Never say never, but never. Okay, what do you got over there, Christopher? Very rich. We got to all NFL. Wildly speculating. Heading into the weekend. You know what I'm looking for? Okay. Hey, did you see the Jerry Jones talk? TJ. What are you talking about? What are you talking about? Well, it seems like he's always talking about his head coach, even though he has won. And he has one in waiting in his defensive coordinator, but another name came up with Jerry today. Sean Payton shouldn't be out there. That's an injustice to him. The cowboys, all of us, that's just sheer pull on it out of the air. Now, it's well known. We're good friends. It's well known that we think a lot of us coach, knowing well and all of those cats and things. But in this case, asking the way you're asking it, he shouldn't be a conversation piece. My kiss got an opportunity here to win a Super Bowl. And he's got an opportunity to win other super bubbles. And so that's really the measurement of it. Not just for me, but it's an eternity between right now and this time next year. In our game, and I'm not trying to be dramatic. And so that's what I should dwell on. That's the way this game is structured, where staff is in place for the year. Mike is not only here, but he's in the best position in my mind, lead this team, his coach. He is very qualified to win a Super Bowl. And I will tell you he has the kind of qualities in a person and individually that I really won't work with. And I know.

"Physical as true. But it's true. What are we saying that is not true on that? The game is a lot easier today in terms of the rules. You're going to have a lot more scoring. I can understand why guys are averaging, you know, multiple not even multiple. Let's say James average what? 35, 36, one year, and then you have a few guys this year, average 30, what run in his 19th year average 30, Joanne B averaged 30, who else, the game today is a lot easier offensively than it was ten, 15 years ago. That is a fact. And the pace is just higher than your pace is higher. I didn't plan an era where you shoot the ball and get the offensive rebound and a shot clock recess of 14 or 15, whatever it is. No, it's a full 24 seconds left, right? So the pace you get more possessions, you're shooting more threes in today's game. You can impede anyone's progress as the game is a lot softer based on the rules. We're not saying the players are soft people. We're saying the rules make the game soft. Understand the difference. Yes. And just to clarify, I ultimately, when you watch the game, today's players, talent level, style of play whatever else, I mean, are you enjoying this version of the NBA? Albeit different than your own. No. No, not as much. I hate all the three point barrages. I don't want to see all these big guys standing out there. Like Joe embiid. You were MVP candidate because you were on the block this year, right? Before you were standing out there shooting jacking up threes when your ability, your natural ability and where you dominate is interior. That's why you were at your best. This is your best season because you dominated inside. I want to see you out there just jacking up threes. Yeah, it's tough to find that right balance because of the way the game is played the day that like being a threat out there also can help out open up, it's not too, but also it does help open up the floor and a lot of today's game is about keeping the floor space too. So I get that they kind of need him to do both and to his credit he's good at both. Because he's really good at both. There is that. All right, winding down. I know you got a bunch of these to do. Appreciate all the time, of course. I'm just curious when you assess your own career. Not so much highlights, but is there a moment? Like when you think back or when you're telling your kids someday grandkids, whoever it is, and if you're directing maybe to YouTube, you want to see how grandpa team Mac was back in the day, go pull this up. Is there a moment like if you could go live in that moment? A game, a series, whatever it is. What's the one that always comes to mind? The 22 game win streak with the rockets. To me, when I'm 70, I have my grandkids, like I'll tell them to go and watch that run. Like that was incredible run. If you look at the top 5 teams that had over 22 game win streaks, you can understand when you look at the roster, you can understand why they were so good and why they made that run. When you're going to look at that rockets team, he'd be like, how the hell did they do that? Because we lost Yao halfway through. I'm thinking like game 12 or something like that. Remind people who your teammates were for the rest of that run. Right, so you got like chuck Hayes, you got Luis scola, ray for Austin. Who else did we had? Was Aaron Brooks on that team? Is that pre earned Brooks? That's the Aaron Brooks was on that team. Like, we had a young team. I think we had two rookies on that team, which was, I think, scholar was a rookie that year, or maybe it was his second year. We had a very young team and Shane davier was on that team to make that run. Yeah, that was that time was incredible. I just remember all the media attention everywhere we went. It was like, it was the show. Like, we were to show that came to town. It was incredible. Yeah. That was a hell of a run. And probably of all the streaks of that size or more that you would look up, you would see like Hall of Famers, multiple all stars, whatever. No, not that team. Absolutely not. That was incredible. That's a good one. There was not the answer I expected. I love that answer. Tracy, this has been great folks. Go check out the ones basketball league, the OBO and team act.

"Sports Illustrated. My guest today is one of the most dazzling players I've had the good fortune to see up close in my 25 years of covering this league. If you did not see Tracy mcgrady in his prime, do yourself a favor, go check his highlights on YouTube. The man was absolutely incredible. A bucket as the kids say. You got a lot in his bag. Also as the kids say, length size, athleticism wingspan, ball handling all of it. Mcgrady was incredible. Saddled with some bad rosters, some bad luck, some injuries that cut his career short, but man, he was dominant in his time, 7 time all NBA, two time scoring champion. He's in the Hall of Fame. He had a good case frankly for the 75th anniversary team, though he did not make it. T Mac was an incredible one on one talent, of course, and he has recently launched a new venture based on the beauty of the one on one game. It's called the ones basketball league OBL. It's here in New York this weekend. It's touring the country, Tracy's got aspirations of making this a global competition. Maybe even getting one on one basketball into the Olympics as we've seen with the three on three version. We discuss all that.

I don't see how you can beat that. Here they are. Chris mannix and Howard back. Now pleased to be joined in person. I love when I get to say in person, it doesn't happen that much anymore. By a 7 time all star, 7 time all NBA. Two time scoring champion and most importantly Hall of Famer, Tracy mcgrady. Tracy how are you, sir? I'm doing well, brother. How about yourself? I'm doing well. You look well. I feel good. I was just saying, it looks like you could roll right out there and drop 30 if you needed to. And today's game. That's possible. You had a couple of years there where you shot the three, all right? You get out there stay in the corner. 3.9 at three point lines, what I can give you. And we've got authentic New York ambience now with sirens, ambulance going by. You have this podcast we're doing. You get everything. All kind of noises. Yes. It's the authenticity of it. I like authentic, you know? When you're in New York, you need to feel it, hear it. Sense it. There's another ambulance. All right, you guys done. Thank you very much. So congrats, I'm getting you on the same day that we just saw the announcement that showtime has now picked up the ones basketball league, obviously a big step for you, this is right now more as you've called it proof of concept than a business. This is not really a business model just yet. You are just kind of getting people to see what one's basketball league is about. I'm sure the showtime partnership will help that. So for listeners who are just hearing about this for the first time, what is one's basketball league and tell me what showtime specifically you think is going to do to kind of elevate exposure. So one's basketball league, OBL is one on one basketball, right? And to me, it's the purest form of true essence of basketball. Growing up playing one on one, you know, my entire childhood, all the way through high school, even when I got drafted into the NBA, I played one on one basketball just for, I think, what it does for you in terms of enhancing your skill set, enhancing your mental preparation for the game of basketball. And it's a teaching tool as well. Because when you plan one on one basketball, it's me versus you. And let's say the guy that I'm playing against is a really good defender, right? And I feel that I'm pretty good at offense, but he's a really good defender. It teaches you to how to be able to create shots, how to get your shot off in certain areas. And from a mental standpoint, it challenges you, right? To be tougher. Because of the one on one component, it's more of a. Teaching tool than it is, people think of street ball. And that's why I'm trying to rebrand one on one basketball. So where I get my information from and starting this league, I have two sons. 16 and 13. My boys don't watch NBA basketball. They don't watch college basketball. They just can't sit and watch, you know, live event from start to finish. But they will watch short form content on YouTube. All the highlights, that's what these guys, the gen zers. That's what they love. Just perfect timing for us to do this. Given these, you know, these players out here that all can't play in the NBA. All can't go across season play professional basketball, but they still love the game of basketball. Play at a high level. And I want to give those guys a platform. So they can really create a legacy for themselves. And I don't see why basketball isn't in a one on one form globally. Yeah. I mean, it's funny because I think the reality is exactly what you said. Your sons are indicative of not just Gen Z, but I mean, I think of a lot of people in the social media age where we don't maybe have the attention span, maybe to watch full games, everything else. So I get that part of it. I'm guessing your former employer of the NBA probably doesn't want to hear that. They cater to YouTube and social media as much as anybody, but at the same time, of course, they would like people to watch full 5 one 5, two and a half to sometimes longer games. Well, the thing is, they have their audience that love to watch from start to finish, but there is an audience that I just can't watch, you know, two and a half hours need something more, you know, short form. We are trying to cater to that audience. And I think, you know, what we're building, the model that we have built for OBL is really very entertaining for the eyes. And for those that don't watch basketball, it's hard for you if you see what we have created, what we've built on our Sundays, and you sit there and watch for two and a half hours, you're gonna leave there wanting more. Because of the competition, the games are to a certain number to where the product stays fresh and it's not slop because I don't know. If you ever played one on one basketball, you get tired pretty quick and the games can get sloppy. Well, our games, we figured out what that number is, and these guys are playing high level basketball and it's very entertaining. And you will leave their wanting more. What's the talent level? Who are so are there names that people would recognize who have been playing? Like Glenn rice junior, his son, Glenn rice, son, Glen rice junior, he won that Atlanta region. So I'm sure people are familiar with him, he went to Georgia Tech. But here in New York, we have mister basketball, Atlantic ten player of the year. We have those type of day one high D one level players that are participating in.

"tracy mcgrady" Discussed on The Lowe Post

"Now, I said on a broadcast earlier, you know who should have picked it by himself, hubie Brown, because he's seen everybody. Like he's actually like seeing like he talked on a broadcast this year. Yeah, when I watch Sam Jones, I'm like, watch Sam Jones, like, I'm listening to him, and I'm like, this guy should pick this list by himself. And so, and then the emission for me and I know I coached him, but Tracy mcgrady, like he wouldn't have been on the back end of that list. He would have been like in the middle of that list. And I just think, you know, again, so those are my three main gripes. 76, who votes and mcgrady? Mcgrady, I was one of the non hubie Brown voters and I had mcgrady on my list. Let's go to the snout the 6 'cause oh, by the way, MVP, I did my whole spiel last week. I also have jokic by a little bit over embiid and Giannis. I think those are the clear top three. Derozan is making a really strong case for four. That's fine. I just, I just keep hearing that it's ridiculous for anybody but embiid to win it or there's all this jokic skepticism and I'm looking around. I'm like, I get that they're 6 in the west and other than the Westbrook year. You got to be top two or three really to win MVP. Well, I've always thought that was kind of dumb. And they are 33 and 25. The sixers are 35 and 23. It's a two game difference between the nuggets and the sixers. You can focus on the three seed difference, but there's a two game difference. They're scoring margins are about the same. And obviously, Porter and Murray have been out for all our most of the season. Ben Simmons has been out for most of the season. And the numbers, everyone's like, you've got to use your advanced stats. Everyone's making the case for jokic based on defensive plus minus and warps and schnapps and all that. How about I just make the case by 27 14 and 8 on 57% shootings. Everyone understand that? You don't need to understand the Forbes and schnauzer understand 27 14 and 8 on 57% shooting. That's easy. That's like, no, that's like almost an unprecedented stat line. No, I mean, the guy is better than when he won the MVP. That's amazing. And you mentioned Yanis and sometimes you just get bored of the greatness. Like, you know, it's the same with Jordan not winning it every year during his heyday, right? Like, you get a little bit bored and people vote for different people. And so I just think like, you know, I like Derozan to me, I just, I just can't get past how great he's been. I'm not saying I would vote for him because it's a season long thing. And you know, we're not quite there, but, you know, MB yogic Yanis, and I'm gonna throw Derozan in. To me, you've got to go on this year. And I just, when I look at jokic, like Murray is so good and porters and outstanding offensive player. Like, I don't know how why people try to, if you want to vote for him be have at it. But please don't try to diminish what yogic has accomplished. I mean, the guy is just absolutely mesmerizing with what a talent he is on offense. Yeah, embiid, I end up voting for embiid. I think it's really close and as you said, the season isn't over. Philly may get the one seed in Denver may be in the play and jokic might slump and embiid might shoot 65% with Hardin feeding it. We just don't know. I like you, I don't care what the seeds are. I'm going to use my eyes and stats. Like, who do you play with and who you play against? Is not a great barometer for like, you know, like so you might have better team success, but what does that really mean? I mean, I think with all star participation, like I want to have a cutoff of rewarding winning when it's close, but in this sort of thing, to me, it's like a lot of your team success is based on obviously how well you play, but also who you're playing with and who you're playing against at that time. I just think these are not easy decisions. And you're not wrong. When you start getting into these oh, he definitely deserves it. There are no definite in this MVP race. Well, the thing that there are two things that make me annoyed about the, well, you know, the history says you have to finish in the top two in your conference to win the MVP. There are two things with the exception of Russ, and that's because rust average is triple double. Okay, number one, well, yeah, the history says that, has anyone bothered to interrogate whether that's actually a good idea, though just because it hits the history says a lot of things, we used to do a lot of things, and now we do a lot of things differently. I didn't, my parents didn't put me in a car seat when I was a kid, 'cause no one had car seats and it turns out that was stupid. Number two, yeah, Russ averaged a triple double. Really, like no one had done that since 1962. Historically significant thing is a triple double that much more historically significant than a center putting up 27 14 and 8. Like I do the two assists make that much of a difference that, okay, for that, it was cool to make an exception. I understand Durant left and it was a big season. For that, that we're fine with that exception for this, well, of course, the nuggets are 60. You can't win MVP. It just doesn't make any sense to me. I don't want to get to it. I'm done with the MVP. And the name we haven't mentioned is going to come up now. Support for this podcast in the following message comes from supercuts for some hair has a way of growing back faster than we wanted to and somehow we can feel like.

"Starter. That's fine. Could he be one of the three guards on a good team? Yes. I don't know if he knows that, though. I think he kind of thinks he's one of those irrational confidence guard guys. He makes me a little bit nervous on a good team. But you keep him around. He's got talent. He's also a culture guy. It's true. He does love Orlando. That's a good thing about those guys too. A lot of those guys, even RJ Hampton, like those guys seem to like Orlando. They like the team. They like playing with each other, some of them even played when they were in AAU together. There's like a good vibe. There's good vibes only around the Orlando Magic right now. Well, the thing is I love these guys. They've been a sneaky free agent destination over the years. People think of it. Can I rant about this? Go ahead. Can I rant about this? Starting in 1996 with Horace Grant. And then we get Grant Hill, and then we get Tracy mcgrady, and these guys, I think it was Grant Hill went to aisle worth where they all those guys live that or winter park. And you almost had Tim Duncan. You were supposed to get three of them. And then and then Greg Popovich called Tim Duncan and called Orlando a cultural wasteland and convinced him to stay in San Antonio. Brother, you live in San Antonio. You're living in Paris in 1924, okay? That's separate rant. That's a separate ramp. But at some point, it became a meme that nobody wants to go to Orlando. I think Kyle Kuzma was like, I'd rather be losing than winning on a window whatever. It's a bad table. Orlando has been a destination. We're guys want to play the franchise has undersold itself. We should be going out and getting these guys and saying, live on a nice golf course, live in winter park, whatever it is, living downtown, downtown is beautiful, it's where I'm from. Downtown. Taxpayers. Tax free. And so I don't know how this started, that nobody wants to play in Orlando. The problem is the team sucks. You left out a crucial point. You got the Rashard Lewis thing was a big deal. That was a huge free agent. I know you have still got the overpaid, Bill Simmons, you thought they overpaid. That's fine, but he still went to Orlando. Turkel still went to Orlando, like you were getting a mid level. Yeah. But you're still getting guys. I'm with you. There's the stigma with Orlando, like that's not a place for agents would go. And it's actually like, it's totally a place for it. This would go. There's no reason. It's more that they're sort of the ownership. I mean, if I'm looking at that from a farm, that's the worst ownership situation, probably in the league, other than Sacramento. Why worry though too? If a place like Dallas with Mark Cuban in all the things, if they can't get free agents, how was Orlando in 2022 going to get free agents? I just think times have maybe changed on that. Like yes, they did get them ten, 20 years ago. I don't know if you could bank on that now. Again, they're trying to think stockpile things like we want to be the next destination for a discrete stars at Donovan Mitchell. Is it something like that? They've got some assets. Sure, but does that Donovan Mitchell's of the world did that guy want to play in Orlando? I don't know if it's the same. Ten, 20 years ago. Well, so that's one thing. If you nail this draft pick, I do think the possibility opens up for like, hey, Orlando. Why not? They have a ton of cad space. They have a good young core because this is what happened in 2000 when I'm telling you it was amazing in the moment where it was like, wait a second. They're going to get mcgrady, Grant Hill and Tim Duncan Orlando. This is the thing that's going to happen. But it was in the mix. All right, that's it for Orlando Magic corner. So Rudy, thank you. Kevin Clark, good to see you, was always a good job during the Super Bowl and we're going to take a break. See you buddy. Love it. All right, Sean fantasy is here. He hosts the big picture for us. He's on the rewatchables. Many times, including on Monday, we're going to be doing Kramer versus Kramer with Mallory, which will be an all time tear jerker as part of fucked up family February and the rewatchables. Brought you on because nobody cares about the Oscars as an institution. More than you. It's been a traumatic few years. It's peaking this year with Oscars that I don't even know how to describe from a category standpoint..

"Kyle. Lowry know in the best. I wonder how you think his story and his trajectory might fit into sort of the larger story of the raptors evolution. Maybe especially as a team works to rebuild down you know. I want to hope that there's going to be bigger. I'm better than kyle lowry. Because he has opened up that door. Yeah he's yeah all these records and what he's done you know these things. He broke other people's records. You know like they are the people that were spoken of as the best raptors of all times. You know like you can argue vince. Carter and how we made. Young players wanted to agree setup. Corey joseph's the wiggins and all these guys the barrett rj barron the latest and some say the biggest name in basketball the amount of canada. He's already got the hardware including a recent harry jerome award and actually usually reserved for people so much. Further into their careers may watched vince. Carter right one point. You could argue the mar- you know like what do i did. Incredible and it was unfortunate. How we think everything went you know like but i still see him that way. You know like he's erupted. That stands out in an incredible way. And then you look at people that way here. Too that dean. Stay that long. You know like kawhi. Leonard might arguably to be you know like a one year greatest her of all time i mean like so and then the talents of the tracy mcgrady's or chris bosh is you know like so but kyle just came on you know and the took off and what gives the most credit to that championship. Do you think he was also also talking about leadership. He was a leader on the team. And is there a deficit on the team. Now do you have to kind of rebuild rebuild that no. We're going to rebuild as a team. Where a young team. But we there is no deficit in leadership. You know. fred is an unbelievable leader. Yeah this is where everybody is going to see now in the kind of leader. Here's another team of now. There's going to be growing pains. Trust me you know like it's not sometimes it's gonna be tough to watch like but we know what's coming we know you know. Why excited about the young talent. They're excited to play. I think to see how or g pascal fred. going to evolve is leaders as lead players and then the young guys you know like the binds the malachi. The delay knows in sports people. Think now right you know and this is where we have to be patient. You know like let it grow right right. Maybe it's not just sports. That people are so obsessed with the now. But you're saying this is long a long game. You're not only known for the work that you do with the raptors but you also have the reputation for helping african players find their path within the nba players like pascal like surge arguably the biggest star from the last nba season. Janas says running the floor once again comes out of nowhere. Brill's it off the backboard yata staff. The tax breaks no doubt given the two time. Mvp in the league. This year's bill russell finals. Mvp at tenneco is originally from nigeria. As are you and can. Can you talk to me a little bit about your connection with him. you know. i don't talk to publicly about thou one yannis and his family so dear to me. We just have a unique relationship and friendship. That honestly now goes beyond basketball. Know so i leave it at that. Might you talk about what it what it meant to you when you saw him.

"Now after this right skip. This generation of players grew up watching lebron A lot of old guy that grew up watching jordan. The tracy mcgrady that grew up like that. I'm sure they would probably going to side with jordan. But there as we get further and further removes guilt with less less people actually saw jordan play. They're going to start siding with guys. Like colby and lebron in k. D. i remember when i was growing up and i was like. Hey mike Dr j. is the best player i saw. It was magic and bird and then here come jordan enjoying doing. We'd never seen anybody really like fly through there. And he had his tongue hanging out he was leading to the side dunkin and he was doing things that we just never ever seen and then he came out with that shoe. And i kinda into the for everybody because once you retired your shoes with away not this guy. This guy who became more popular once he retired that he did when he was actually play true. Woah that's not supposed to happen. But i just think cade this kid would nineteen twenty years old and so basically all. He's really remembered watching lebron and once he gives an opportunity. It would be interesting to see you know when they looked really good. And i think that they will have katie. Katie these katie special. And then you actually get the game when you see what katie's do man that's all a whole different level and that's where they do go. He's like man this duty. Really good at ten file appearances the four. Mvp to four or five vp's the seventeenth straight. All star game starts the thirteen time first team all nba. Nobody closed. He's been in all nba player. Basically fit were fifteen times sixteen times. Yep so agree with kate. Coulda and guess what you can't say doesn't clutch client. Now i tell you. Don't bra rich powell owes clipped This is not a quiet agree with kate. Hm i'm sure why going to be rookie that might be the biggest duh in the history of why are you going to be real good of you.

Oh oh yeah wait till doug it and what are you going to do like wait. Wait till list. Wait till we heard all those stories still yet. You have the kwamena brown.

Night about adam morrison another moment right draft you keep bringing it up jordan gaza by the way it was so many draft one. What was dark goes best. Nba moment nah. I don't know about that because he did. He did win a championship. Now say he did but he has a ring. I know he wasn't a big part of what i'm just saying. How many those god kasit. He got a ring. The first guy that you right right. Hey darko help to win the championship his rookie year right. That's right but yeah it's it's sad but let look they're gonna make their money. Hopefully they'll be smart with their money. Hopefully they can get a second contract right but somebody's guys who've been superstars their entire careers. Rob you know junior high high school college is going to be ruffling basketball wise. And it's going to be tough to take when you're no longer that good you know relatively speaking so but that's all the dynamics tonight we'll get into it more with doug gottlieb fox sports radio host and friend of both of ours. So he'll join us at the bottom of the hour. Rob let me go here. There was an interesting story. And we've been seeing that. Several of these top players in the country are now high.

We're talking off the air to compared him to kobe comparing him to tracy mcgrady guy that wow detroit right with workout. Make them think twice about. Should we take him or k. Cunningham and he's the guy there with the hair and the sequence silver sequined suit bell-bottoms. I mean the character if game ball like that he's going to be something else but he went to the g. League gra he made five hundred thousand dollars as a what eighteen nineteen year old in the g. league and he's about to be the second pick of the draft. Here's what i'm gonna say and we bring this up because dyson daniels who is a top prospect. He's actually from australia but he is going to. The g. league. He's actually the first player to go to the g. league. Who's not from america. So now they're getting players from different parts of the country and our. I'm sorry different. Parts of the world by. He's gonna make you know six figures i don't know mid six figures money and he's not going to college spent one year in the g. League be drafted next year. Presumably.

"I mean if you have a premier offensive big joel embiid vucevic not going to be able to do anything there. But he could still do so many different things on that often event that makes him absolutely vital to pretty much any team that got the has him and obviously now that he got traded to the chicago bulls. They're trying to you know ramp up that team to make it to the playoffs and actually make some noise but you look at those nine seasons. He averaged some great numbers. Seventeen point six points a game. Almost eleven rebounds almost three assists a game with one steal and one block a- game on fifty percent shooting and just over thirty five percent from three to get that thirty five percent from a big lake. Nicole vucevic really opened up the floor for so many different guys and and really mainly call rich one of the best all around offensive bigs in the game today and on top of that he was a two time all star with the orlando magic in two of their last three seasons. Together so Yeah man vucevic in my opinion has played that. Well i know he didn't play for any great orlando magic teams. But that's not on him. It really isn't because he gave him such great years You know night in and night out year in and year out and certainly deserves to be number five on this list in my opinion however now we're talking about the cream of the crop. This is the best of the best for orlando magic history and a number four. I've got tracy mcgrady played four seasons with the orlando magic. And really this was when the orlando magic tracy mcgrady was. It was the coming out party because he was solid in toronto. I mean he gave him. I think was there for four years and he was seen as one of those bouncy players that can do a lot of different things but it was all potential. Really like he didn't really you know. Bring it out. But then he joins the orlando magic and just it was a different story like he was unleashed and became one of the best shooting guards in nba history throughout his years. There in four seasons. You're talking about just stats alone. He's got one of the best stat lines on this entire list. You're talking like you're if you're only talking stat lines you can put up to. That's how good tracy mcgrady wasn't as four seasons in orlando twenty eight points. A game seven rebounds a little over five assists per game to go with one point five steals and a block a game on forty five percent shooting at thirty six percent from three and his accolades are also incredible four seasons. He was a he was. He was an all star. Every single year four-time all-star and he made the for the nba first team twice and the all mba. Second team twice it. It's that is just incredible. That first season in orlando he won the most improved award and in these last two seasons in orlando. He was the nba scoring champion. I mean he gave orlando some of the greatest shows that they probably have ever seen since You know you can probably say shock. And even those dwight howard years. It was not the skeptical that it was when tracy mcgrady was there. It just sucks. They couldn't give him a good team. That those orlando magic teams were garbage. They were bad you know because they were still trying to you know get back from those you know or the shock era. The penny hardaway era. The they were still trying to recuperate from that and it took him. I think almost like tricia mcgrady's last season was the season right before. Dwight howard was there so it was kind of like you know the bridge between those two era so but man tracy mcgrady. We're talking just numbers. I mean the guy was an absolute monster he like. I know at the time. Kobe was winning championships. So he was oh. Kobe was always considered better than tracy at that time. But if you're talking just the skillset tracy was right there like. He was just as good as kobe if not better in terms of skill sets like he wasn't making it to the playoffs he wasn't winning a lot of games but he was balling out and needs that recognition. That's why he comes in at number four on this top ten orlando magic list and number three. We have dwight howard. And this might be a little controversial but dwight howard. I mean even though he's been shell of himself over the last couple of seasons he was an absolute monster in his years with the orlando magic played. Eight seasons with the franchise had eighteen and a half points a game. Thirteen rebounds one and a half assists one steal and two point two blocks per game and just under fifty percent shooting from the field. You look at his accolades and they're about as good as anybody on this entire list. They're actually the best of anybody on this list. Six time all star three-time defensive player of the year and that's three in a row one of only like four or five guys to do that in nba history five time all nba first team one time. Nba third team a four time all defensive first team one time all defensive second team he was the rebounding leader four times in the blocks leader twice now. Dwight howard yes. He gets a lot of trash. Talk because of you know the The comparisons to shaquille o'neal from him. You know being on the magic to start his career than going to the lakers and that absolutely failing and you know there's obviously a lot of things that people say about dwight howard..

"tracy mcgrady" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM

"Rare when a player leads the league in scoring and then his traded the following season. Tracy McGrady that happened to him when he led the league in scoring in Orlando, then went to Houston. Bob McAdoo did it with the underrated Buffalo Braves back in the mid seventies. Then he went to the Knicks will did it and George Yardley, you couldn't stop George Yardley. You could only hope to contain him back in 1957. Will gets more phone calls coming up. That line from Barclay about shack is that is Great. That is quintessential Barclay there where I saved you know how this shack weigh £400 ago? Yeah, wait for it. And then he got on the scale and be like, hey on, Lee won one per person here the fact that the shotgun on there and what the scale would say back to him. He's Nick right, the co host, but in his mind, he's basically the host of first things. First on Fox Sports one Any former Houston sports radio host Patrick Mahomes apologist and maybe James Harden apologist and wanted to check in with Nick, right? Who joins us now? Good morning, Nic. What honor Does Patrick know Homes ever have to apologize for nothing? Everyone feel bad because he's good. Like what? I don't understand. I know you got Kansas City beating. Who in the Super Bowl? Green Bay. Okay, Very chalky. It will be the eighth question for you. Okay? What? Roger's Mahomes. Either greatest quarterback matchup in the Super Bowl ever. We've had Montana Elway. We had branch all star back a couple times we had breeze Manning with this go to the top of that list. What say you, Dan Patrick is the match up this weekend in New Orleans. Better than that match up, even though it's not in the Super Bowl, historically. Reason, Brady That's very interesting If they were both it they're apex. Yes. But it breathes and Brady Yeah, because you would have the greatest ever and then breeze who is somewhere from 5 to 9? So yes, I would say so. But because radiant and listen Brady the last five weeks has made me look like a total moron. So he's been very, very good, but obviously he's not as great as he once was. And I don't think breezes close. Who's great as he once was, It seems like Roger's somehow has reclaimed his peak, and Mahomes just keeps ascending an ascending, so I just think it's kind of where they're out on the mountaintop, so to speak. The most pressure on which player this weekend. We're going into the those left in the postseason. The most pressure is on which player I do think there's a lot of pressure on the homes because they are the huge your double digit favorite against the Browns. And so I think a loss would be somewhat of an indictment on the way they played at the end of the year. I think that they put it in cruise control once they essentially locked up the one seed. So aside from the homes I think there is massive pressure on Roger's because you e. I understand the rooms of the number one defense. I get it. But at the end of the day, it's in Lambeau, and it's either God for wool for Europe against like. And so if they lose that game when he is going to be the leading VP when they're a touchdown favorite in Lambeau, it's gonna be 25 degrees. I ain't got to tough one for him. I think Brady and Brees we're both kind of free rolling. And I think Lamar and Josh Allen are somewhat free rolling is they both got their first playoff win last week. They both played really well last week, and they're young enough that I don't think anyone's going to kill the loser of that game. Yeah, I'd probably go Rogers because I think we're looking at the bigger picture of what one more Super Bowl would mean. And more homes has time breeze and Brady. You know they're kind of If they win one great, but they're emeritus right now. I just think with Rogers all of a sudden, you move up the ladder. I think in people's minds when you add that second, Peyton got his second, but he didn't earn that second. This is one of those. Where Rogers then all of a sudden, you know, farms only got one. So I would say, Let me ask you this if Rogers wins it if someone says Aaron Rodgers is now unquestionably. This is so corny Sports radio with God, I love it unquestionably, Quarterback Mount Rushmore. That is mental. They're so Brady is locked in. I would argue Montana's locked in and I would argue Peyton Manning's locked in. I'm not counting Red Grange and the guys who I don't know actually existed outside of Peter King's memory. Like I'm doing about like the models last 50 years at fourth spots open. As Roger, Slam that door shut if.
