How Stallone Created Rocky Balboa
"Way back in the early 70s. Stallone was an unknown actor trying to make it in New York, he had some minor success, even though soft porn movie, but he answered minus his actions in a movie called the lords of flatbush, fun movie, right? He was still broke. It didn't make big money. He wasn't paid a lot of money for that. And after the launch of flatbush, he figured it was time to maybe give it a shot in California. So he moves out there, and things were not going well for him out there at all, either. I mean, things got so bleak that he actually had to go out and sell his dog because it was either that or the poor thing wasn't going to eat. So one night he goes to see Muhammad Ali fight chuck wet. Chuck Webb got big old white fighter who was known as the Bayonne bleeder. Bayonne is a city in New Jersey, tuft city, the Bayonne bleeder on account of how a lot of fighters opened his face up and he bleed through a lot of his flights. He was that kind of guy with there's some fun in boxing. You hit him and they bleed. You know, a lot of scar tissue, what have you, but so he's watching shop raptor Muhammad Ali go at it? And he really saw something very extraordinary. He sees the Bayonne bleeder. He sees chuck wepner fight the greatest fighter who ever lived. And for one brief moment, this supposed stiff turned out to be extraordinary. Not only did he last the 15 rounds with Ali, but he not the champ down. I was a kid, you didn't see Muhammad go down much. I mean, there was a couple of the bigger fights or Frasier and stuff like that. But he didn't go down mom, especially not to an old stumble bump like chuck Webber. Stallone sees this and he thinks, you know what? This is a metaphor for life. And you can see where this is going and where the character rocky came from as a matter of fact. Years later, Trump wepner who went on to be a liquor and beer salesman sued Sylvester Sloan because he said, look, he took my life and made it into the smash movie. I want to be compensated. And they fought their lawyers for it. And finally, they would finally there was a settlement.

"Yeah, and I get to that and that young man, his name is Kennedy Chandler. And Juan recruited him. And one of them bad at the University of Michigan. And he has a wonderful mother and father and we were talking to him in the back and so that's who's one is. Who else can hug you except a guy has had I think one thing about empathy empathy has definitely understanding for it in the sensitivity, but true empathy holds you accountable because you've been there before. And you can say, hey, I know you've been there, but you still can't do that. So when I watched the game, I couldn't believe it. What transpired in that game in the line, I communicated with July weeks before weeks after the day of all that good stuff. From the second that it was and the second being, with me, maybe an hour after the game, you know, it communicated, you know, how sorry he was and if anyone knows Joan he's a man of conviction, but just as happy as he was, you know, joining the team emotionally happy. He was just a distraught, you know? On the other hand, and also for the representation of his family, he knew he could get a coaching job. I think it was reported that 9 NBA teams called him right away that next day and he didn't care about any of that. He cared about the young men in the locker room. So that's who he is. And so while that surprised me and his no excuse for it and it didn't surprise me, you know, our care and he was and the fact that, you know, you really got to think about it for the young man to go over there and to speak to July. I speak to myself after me and something from jawan's perspective, because yes, Joan is going to consult the kid, right? But how many times does a kid from another team know disrespect to his coach? But here's the other way. To the other coach that just beat him and just says, you know, and just falls in yarns. So it says a lot about who he is and a long time before this incident ever happened. And again, he's taken any better take and he has taken and he needs to move forward, but he's taken for the responsibility for it. And thank God he gets an opportunity through these moments in our plan to the show who he really is. Well, you know the X's and O's two, what makes juwan Howard a good coach, Chris. I think IQ. I think having been in the game so long played so long, the great mentoring of coaches that he has, you know, everybody talks about the part of his tree, which you should. And so I think one of the things is that he's made adjustments. He's been in the game in the transition. I think like yourself or any of these other great guys in the media, I think, not that the younger generation doesn't have an advantage by being familiar, but I think there's an advantage to context and being an advantage to transition. So, you know, I'm not trying to date you, but I'm sure you were you were on TV with bait with VCRs. Yeah, they might have set the VCR for a SportsCenter back in the day. Chris, yeah? I used to be in the studio with dats and things like that, but I think that when you see new technology new situation that it just makes you, you know, it just gives you a better context. And I think that his empathy, his context. He's the age of their parents. He has a kid in school. You know, he knows what you're going through. And I think that sensitivity really holds him accountable. Again, you know, he's since I met all the guys at some of the best men that I know. So I'm definitely not surprised with who he is. As a family man, first, and then as a coach. Chris Webber basketball Hall of Famer here on the rich eisen show for a few more minutes. Okay, let me just talk a little NBA with you if you don't mind. Last night, LeBron dropped a triple double on Cleveland, and it was quite a moment for him as well. When he soaked in the thunderous applause, when they put up on the scoreboard that he passed karma alone for second most points in the history of the NBA, he said he's having the time of his life, do you believe him when you hear that? For a team that's mired in 9th right now in the west? Chris? You know what? Yes, and I think that he has to have the time of his life because you know that he knows the time is fleeting. So I think one, I think the most underrated story in sports is that he passed Karl alone. Number two, I mean, I can't imagine in baseball that someone was, you know, passed number two and was on, you know, a couple of years away or whatever. So I'm not to be having triple doubles at this age to go back to his hometown and do what I mean. And yes, in a true argument, I would say, well, you know, it hasn't been broken because other guys couldn't come until they were 22. And they played more games. And we can say all of that. But what he has just done is the most incredible thing that we've ever seen and so he's made up clubs as far as the 40 ten ten club or whatever clubs that he's had. So hopefully he is enjoying it because I tell you what he hates losing, so it's either going crazy, hate losing or trying to find we're trying to find that balance, you know, in the rainbow. So he needs to embrace being able to chase him personal goals, but I know it's killing him that they better play well because they may not even make the play in. So hopefully he is enjoying it while working his ass off to try to make it to the playoffs. Yeah, there's ten games to go and the aforementioned Gregg Popovich is the team that can maybe get in there's a tense. They're two behind the pelicans and three behind the Lakers who are currently 9th. I guess it's an open ended question. Do you think the Lakers have won two of three? They're talking about maybe going on a special run, who the heck knows, but it doesn't look good at all, right? I mean, what do you think about the Lakers chances, Chris? Yeah. I think there are teams we can root for as fans, but I think the great thing about all of the leagues is that it's so competitive. So, you know, I don't know. I don't think it's going to be tough, you know? Like LeBron had to have a triple double everywhere and over all this incredible things that they've had to do to maintain it and it just seems as if it would be hard to maintain this even though they're trying to move up. So I would say just as the guy looks basketball, it doesn't look great for them, but with LeBron and what he's been doing, they always have a chance, but even in the play on series and I know people like anything can happen that way. It's just really hard to fight without this consistency, whether you them or a great team like Golden State. I just think there's just so much accountability with officiating now. I think there's so much parity. I think the fans are so smart that you're not going to slip anything over them. And so being at all those eyes are in anyone has a chance and I think that's all they're saying is just let us get to the AC and we can do anything and hopefully they do because it'll make a great playoff series. Who's your team in the east? What do you think? Chris. I'm sorry. Who's the team in the east if you had to choose one? I think you still got to my favorite team of teams the most fun to watch..

"Correction of the record. Joining me here is a basketball Hall of Famer, one of the greatest Michigan wolverines of all time. And he was in the locker room and the victorious locker room after Michigan made its 5th consecutive sweet 16. On behalf of his good fab 5 friend and head coach of the Michigan wolverines in juwan Howard. The great Chris Webber is here on the Mercedes Benz vans phone line. How are you doing Steve Webb? Hey, what's up, rich? And I'm so glad you admitted, you know, how wrong you were with that omission segment. A good man. Thank you. You know, always make sure he goes back and apologizes. And so make sure you let people know what's going on right now. Yeah, I did. I left out the fact yesterday when I was crowing about the Michigan Wolverine athletic situation. And by situation, I mean kicking ass and name taken. That I forgot to mention that the Michigan hockey team is number one ranked currently in the Michigan hockey tournament. So do you ever spend any time in the great yost ice arena? Chris, you ever do that? Back in the day. Oh, yeah. Oh yeah, you know, I went to yeah, I went to games there and I used to go to red wings games, and I used to love it. It was like football, you know, football on ice. So yeah, I was definitely a big fan. All Michigan athletics, but I definitely got to a couple games up there at Yale. Do you bang on a glass? Are you a glass banger when you go to a hockey game? Chris? I got to I got to bang on the glass of my friend Adrian to know when he took me to a hockey game in high school and that was the best moment, but he goes, no, I probably was the best he's stupid with the rest. What was it like to be just hugging it out with juwan after that? I saw you went right up to him and you guys were hopping up and down and hugging each other. Walk me through that moment. From the other day, Chris. It was awesome. So first shout out to the Michigan fans there and the family there. I was sitting there with people so funny that I had known over 30 years that were personal friends in Juan's. And so that was awesome and then, you know, ray Jackson really is the impetus of coming back to all the games and hanging out. He's been, you know, just getting me out all the time. And so he's been on me and so we were going to go back to a game before. And we didn't get a chance to. And so that moment, hugging, juwan, ray kind of moves out the way because he wants us to have our home moment. And then he brings us in and, you know, juwan and I communicate all the time. We talk, we see each other. I love his family, his wife is wonderful. However, I haven't been there to support him. And so I was so nervous that I just went over the hug him and then like, let's go, you know? And then he starts jumping and hugging and my knees hurting. And so I'm just trying to jump in myself, but it's just that it was just a special moment, man. It was just true, joy. That's all like I said. It was just true, joy. Seeing the underdogs get the win and being there to support. And then you went in the locker room. I saw that video that was fun. That would happen. Well, I'm serious. What is it like for you to be back in a Michigan basketball locker room, like that, Chris? Man, you know, it was surreal, but at the same time, it was familiar. You know what I mean? I'm fans. Why it sounds like he's been in diapers. The other players there have known some seeing them grow up and so to me, you know, Howard eisley, the great offensive coordinator there. I played against him in high school. And in India. And so him being from Detroit. So to me, you know, I grew up in Michigan and Michigan state fan, obviously, Michigan is the better school and situation, obviously, but just growing up in the state of Michigan. You know, it's like watching 89 when they were winning and, you know, winning the championship and watching a million hit the free throws. You know what I mean? So it was just so familiar to feel good, like I can't. I can't express. I'm not trying to downplay it in any way. It felt so good, but part of it feeling good was the familiarity of it. You know what I mean? It wasn't. It wasn't the outsider or anything else. It was, you know, it was just awesome to be there. And it was the kids time to shine. They won. It happened the right way. No one stole their shine and so it was just the perfect situation. And even seeing Chandler in the back Kennedy, I'm such a fan of his and even just as a competitor when I saw him in the back and we're hugging. All I was telling was that I'm proud of him and that I'm glad he's trying because it means that he wanted to win. Like you deserve to cry everyone doesn't desire to cry, they can laugh, they can say this. That's because they quitters and they're scared of failure. So who cares about haters who are scared of failure? You know the man in the arena quote kind of. And telling him to embrace it because only guys that really wanted are the ones that do it and I'm proud of you 'cause I know when you go to the NBA, these emotions will still be in you and whether it's this year or the next year and so just proud of all the kids after the big fellow from Michigan, our guards our guard play guys that were on the bench the way to come in the right time and being able to really let them know like who cares about what's going on social media, this area you guys are great because you came together as a team. So it was just really good being able to reinforce those positive messages because of the athlete. That's all it's about. Chris Webber here on the rich eisen show and we're seeing the video of juwan jumping up and down with the players and water being thrown in the air and it's just a joyous locker room and I got to just bring it up too the shot of that went viral as well it should of juwan of coach Howard. Hugging a member of Tennessee's team that was crying on the line on the handshake line and hugging this kid in contrast to what happened on the handshake line at Wisconsin is stark to say the least. It is remarkable and now coach Howard is going to the sweet 16. This young man is not going there. I'm wondering what your thought was when Joan was going through his suspension and you saw what had happened on the line in Wisconsin and the conversation that was a national conversation about juwan Howard, Chris Webber..
Larry and Tribune Editor Stephanie Finucane Discuss Systemic Racism
"Good morning, mister elder. Morning. Stephanie phonon, I'm the opinion editor at the tribune in San Luis Obispo. And I'm going to return to the topic of systemic racism. On your website, you say it's outrageous that America is being demonized a systemically racist. Yeah, that seems to fly in the face of what we see around us and our reporting. For example, tab Webber just completed a series on redlining in Fresno and how it prevented black Asian and Latino people from buying property and preferred areas. And that has ramifications to this day. A national survey just ranked west Fresno is one of the worst places in the nation for a black person to live. And it was the only place in the west to receive such a bad ranking. How do you respond to that? Well, I'm back in 1991. There was a black Harvard sociologist named Orlando Patterson. He's still there. 1991. And he said, America, despite its flaws, is the least racist majority society in the world provides more opportunities for blacks than any other country in the world, including all of those of Africa. 1997, Time Magazine, CNN, time teamed up, you'll study a black teens and white teams. And they asked them both were the racism was a major problem in America. Again, this is 1997. And both of them said, yes. But then they did something that I rarely seen, any study do. They ask black teens if racism was a big problem, a small problem or no problem in your own daily life. 89% of black teens called racism a small problem or no problem in their own daily life. In fact, more black teens than white team said, failure to take advantage of available opportunities is a bigger problem than racism. I want to repeat that. More black teens and white teens said, and this is pretty much verbatim. Fail I want you to take advantage of available opportunities is a bigger problem than racism in

And so i really did and it was really through the people because i do remember the games and things like that and you don't get me wrong but you know i really remember more moments and and and certain things that you know that that were great during that season or some our best memories and so it was really cool Seeing you know so many family members coaches and things that i had. Yeah i did get a chance to kinda enjoy. And the thing. That i i always love. There's two things. There's two parts about a hall of fame weekend. I've been around almost twenty of them for the pro football hall of fame. And i want to take it one by one With you the first the first of the is the basketball odds bestowing upon you. Obviously the great gift that puts you in the hall of fame and your your ability to use that to get you in the hall of fame With a random selection of other people who had happened to them And it's just always interesting to see the class together and get to know one one another. Did you meet any body or renew any acquaintances or you know. Walk me through you and your classmates going into springfield to bobby. Badgers is creighton. He's the funniest man. And i love him and his wife and He's eighteen. He's just he's awesome. He's a joke a minute and I had a lot of fun. Not only watching the speech. But hanging out with charlie scott. I got a chance to hang out with before last year. And i was looking for them. I actually got his number and But he was so much fun. You know to new york. I talks a lot of junk. Br you know by You know my my. My boss grows more more We didn't i. I didn't hang with players On china actually stayed away from plans in one of the work out with them. Want to keep them as enemies was a different time and place and a lot of them. I'm cooler with now but with bosch You know i just. I just love his kids. I respect him. And you know when you really think about this story again having a retired thirty one you know yeah championships and things like that You know just be cool but the best moment private. I had there with the hall of fame ray on And it was after The ceremony and Just had a conversation and I read somebody that. I really respect a lot. And it was probably one of the best conversations within the athletes. And i've ever had really. Can you share anything. From what are you. I i whatever you can share from that after you do it was. It was just an adult. I don't know how man i it was. Just that he said some some words to me that we're encouraging and he relates something that his wife had said to me just about kind of how. I grew up with my teachers or something like that. But it leading to just a deeper conversation and for somebody that has the as an nfl. I really respect. It meant a lot and we never really got to talk. And that's part of the part of it. Was you know I stayed away. From uber's i had a wall up and you know he's dressed that and we kinda just addressed you know some really good things and it was just it was. It was cool. He got where i was coming from. Sorry to be speaking and you know code or anything. I'm not trying to but really. It was overwhelming. I'm trying to get back in that space of remembering the conversation. 'cause 'cause i'm not trying to be crying on which is no well then. Then let me add a little bit of levity. How was paul pierce ship out dinner that friday night. Did you get one of those in there with him. No i get to it. But if he had a great night. I i didn't see. I didn't check my instagram stories friday night. I imagine that was a shebab dinner for chris. Webber here on the rich eisen show. Well then i will proper to say that. Maybe i'll give you a tier achier teardrop warning here because the second aspect of hall of fame weekend that i love watching is family getting together right and journeys and i know your dad who you're named after. Chris is not your first name that your dad slipped the jacket on you. Which is one of my favorite moments. I'm the host of the jacket dinner at the hall of fame every year. And it's one of my favorite gigs to mc What was that moment like for you chris. Webber moment man. I mean the best part about it is you know. Have a lot of brothers and so when somebody's graduation when somebody else's moment usually there's the clown in our family. That's you know stealing all entity or giving all the energy. Just let the person enjoy it and my whole family enjoyed it so much that i really enjoy. It was their weekend. You know instead of just tiptoeing around like this is our weekend and so it was so fun undersea embracing and having my father do that man. It was It's it's the the moment you know having him be drafted knowing what he went through growing up. And then you know you know him knowing that esther reed and so before i got on the plane Before i got on the plane He at a restaurant. And i gave them my bag with the ring and sam payne and everything and i'm like here in the trophy. I'm like hey take this you and You know he's like no no. I can't take it. I can't take it. Any started to kind of tear up. And i just ran and i was like damn. I left the champagne in there because he doesn't drink and i'm like i need champagne. It was one of the best moments man on the best moments ever man. I can't lie you and the speech. I was so nervous. I forgot to say that. It was their fiftieth wedding anniversary. You're celebrating with them and all this but he got the point but it was my honour man it was. It was my behalf and pretend jacket on. So are you saying chris. Webber you got into the basketball hall of fame in springfield massachusetts on the same weekend or even day of your.

"So that's that's the peak for your kings teams and and for those teams for chris. Weber's kings teams is two thousand two. But i was reading a couple stories retrospectives last couple of days reflections on chris webber and i've forgotten about this but obviously you guys were still whole and going into the next season in that two thousand three season. You should have been in just as good a position as ever to to challenge the lakers spurs and again. It's just that conference is just monstrous at that time. But you guys were right there. I think you had the second best record in the west that year but see web. He hurt his knee around christmas time. And danny i think he gets worse and it and blows out. Some ligaments early in the play offs was that oh two or three season is like could you feel like this is. This is where it turned right. Like two thousand. Two's the peak but oh two three a chance to still like climb that mountain once more. Maybe maybe try to break through at a time when the lakers were per usual a bit. Dysfunctional maybe a little banged up and there was there was there was a pather. Perhaps the you know the spurs and the ones who who. Come out that your. What did you see happening across that last like full year of your of that group you know i think Kobe the best it. He said If you guys beat us that we went to overtime in game seven. You win a championship. Probably win a couple in a row because the championship gives you a different type of confidence. It gives you something bed until you win it. you don't even know that it's there and the inability for us to do that. Because brought in barack miller we were playing good basketball Kion clark jimmy jackson like we had cases but without at championship about that experience without those things all of sudden. I'm getting planet fasciitis a little bit and webbed with the knee in all these different things started happening and unfortunately we were just unable to to to close the deal and you can start feeling a little bit. And that's the that's the unfortunate part howard that talk about when i say that this is what i live with. When i interviewed coach out for the hall of fame i interview disallow. Still don't radio entered viewed See web in. I asked him. I said i haven't had a chance to talk. You guys ask you this question. I said but for me. Just talking every day and being around basketball's therapeutic because this is something that you live with in in it. It's painful because in athletic lifetime there's a window in when it closes athletically. You can no longer do anything about it. I can get into coaching. Do different things in their each of their answers were different. But that's that's the thing that you live with is is the inability to close the deal in.

"Si cover at the time if not for the way you guys played the game and it was beautiful basketball and again people should go back watch. Those highlights the cutting the movement. The passing you guys were the epitome of the beautiful game exactly as we have praised the most recent edition of the warriors for and as we praise the spurs four especially when they beat the heat in two thousand fourteen. That's exactly what you guys were not identical. But that that aesthetic. Right and and i agree with you. Doug like if if if your best player isn't willing to be selfless like that. Give up his body setting screens passing playing at the elbow. When initially he you know he may be a little reticent because power forwards are supposed to be banging down the low block like without that. The rest of you guys aren't elevated right. You need to play off of role. Players needed playoff of great players. Who opened it up for them. And so i i agree with you there. I will say that the hand off screen to set up bibi's game winner in game. Four i think derek fisher still claims to this day. That was an illegal screen by web.

"Give me a moment that you like defined who. Chris was on the court whether it was in the midst of that two thousand two conference finals which was obviously just an absolute battle. Maybe it was a quieter moment Maybe it's on a flight. Gimme the quintessential when you're describing to your kids who chris webber what he was about aside from obviously the skills themselves on the court. You know there were. There were so many times tower aware the ability to keep everything light and everybody to stay relaxed whether we're cut in somebody's hair on the plane for a certain amount of money or what one time at practice which defined like web would our second unit was pretty good like we lost our second unit in practice quite often. They would chirp a lot will one day. They're jerkins are barr smith. He's chirpin in. It was like a timeout. Everyone's giving some water website. This is what you want to keep up and give me the ball. Come down here and he just. He's in the post guys playing post defense. Any grabs the basketball takes one dribble shoulder to to chest in. I mean aegis. Rich in gist dunked on top of him in and everyone was like. Oh my god well. He's just letting you know that. This is what i could do. But we're playing basketball. That is for me like so so many moments from i'm grabbing a rebound which is a two guard. Now the power forward is trailing me. I dribble in front of him dropped the ball between laid to now. We need to build up that seventeen foot jumper he's just right inside the key pulls up and knocks down. A chip is guy all at once the beauty of the game and then just the communication not always verbal sometimes just looking at each other. Those are the things that you miss that. If you watch a play especially now you're watching on S the united hd. You might miss a lot of that stuff and not understand and see the essence of what made a player like him so very special you mentioned the selflessness and we in the media especially we left to to kind of like glorify the selfless as we always have the guys that assists in passing such a selfless player. But there's always this funny balance right when you're one of the greats sometimes you selfish and if you go too far one way we're going to criticize you know you should have been passing when you were shooting and if you go too far the other direction was say i you gotta take that on. That's your responsibility. This is what happens in bass basketball discourse right. Is there any argument to be made. Maybe it was in the two thousand two conference finals. Maybe one of those other series when you guys were at your peak. Is there a case me that maybe chris should actually said you know what it is on me. I am the best player on this team. Yeah we've got this great ensemble davidson amazing player. Mike bibby can fill it up. But we've got if we're going to get anywhere it's on me and that's what we're again..

"He's he's looking in. You would talk to me. He would me a look in a wink and those were the type of things that he did. Which was which is an. I q that not a lotta guys at that position at that particular time had so it allowed him to step away from the basket in down seventy footers. Like if he was that they see where. We're probably be shooting a three point shot like because he had that much talent but then he would go down and he would bang dunk on somebody snarl all those different things like is leadership. Ability was He would in. This is the party said that our he would get so much more credit. Had we only made free throws games. Think about that you make free. Throws you make three throats and it changes a narrative that when you say those numbers that you said our. He was so far ahead of the curve because he played begin. Tie game like was he. A lockdown defender. No but he was very good at communicating. And i never had to really check and look when i was getting screened because i would have a compensation. Hey d watch out here conference on your left. It's on your on your rights. Like that's how it spoils is spoils you. Because he was so good at so many different things so I am glad to see him. Glenn i would agree with you now. a long long overdue from the resume. That has been put down anybody. Anyone that question whether chris webber hall of famer just does not know basketball in my opinion and you should have to put it in this context to doug. That was a powerful word era right as much as as much as this era is about gourds as much as they were previous decades. That were much more about the center of the seven footers. That was a powerful. Here's a partial list of the guys. That were chris weber's rivals and this is partially. Why if you look and you go. Why isn't anyone moral. Nba teams are more all star teams partially because he he injures the nina's really thirties but partially because this is who he was up against night after night and by the way was beating a lot of these guys in outscored these guys. So carl malone kevin garnett. Tim duncan dirk nowitzki. Charles barkley shawn kemp vin baker germaine. O'neil tony mc dice. Dice another one who got cut short because of injury but like the position was just absolutely stacked. There were no off nights for powerful especially in the western conference. I it was. It was incredible what he can do up against all that and listen to howard. What makes that even more impressive in for basketball. People that understand basketball. This is why. I said. Chris could have went in. He could could egotistical approach facing the players that you just name and said i'm going outscore and but there were nights where he leads to go. There were nights where he let me go off in. Did he still get his twenty four and yet but did it in a flow. He shared the ball. He understood that now isn't the time for me to score. Let me get everybody else going loose in the defense up and now i strike like that type of level i've played with other players. Who is like. I'm gonna get mine regardless of what the team does web was not that way in that speaks to the person he is when you name a lip is a really proud of about reports and that was on the night night basis..

"I'll just say this for people who again may not be familiar stats compiled earlier this year. When i was writing about why he needs to be in his prime years. And i defined that it's like ninety four two thousand three and that's before me the negroes and and that's the other part to he gets injured he blows neon two thousand three and he's never quite the same gets the microfracture surgery which affected a lot of guys back then adversely From ninety four zero three he twenty two point eight points. Ten point four rebounds. Four point six assists. There's the selflessness and the playmaking right there. How many powerful is you ever seen. Averaging four point six assists especially back then plus one point six steals one point six blocks so that's almost a decade of averaging almost twenty three and ten four and a half assists one point sixty six blocks. I wrote this then so the number of players who matched those levels during that nine year span zero. None take out the steals and blocks. There's still nobody who averaged that in points assists and rebounds if you made it just scoring and rebounding just twenty two point eight a ten point four the only other two guys who matched that over that span were tim. Duncan and shaquille o'neal like that's how freaking crazy chris. Webber was how dominy was and besides that was still selfless because he could have been averaging more also by the way though you guys played at a fast tempo for that time people need to understand that these numbers would be higher high much higher in today's game with so many more possessions. So dude was a a monster and really talented. And i think i want you to speak to this because you know him much better than i do from being in with day in day out. I think there was a aspect of chris webber where personality wise. He wasn't fiery or ferocious like shock. You know. Tim duncan coud could because he was a so ruthlessly efficient didn't have to have that big personality on the court so he just got but he wasn't you know he wasn't like k. g. people ripping down rims see web. He wasn't the he was demure on the court by any stretch. But he wasn't like a big vocal type of you know whatever macho man alpha dog that people usually like to associate with plus. He was more of this versatile inside outside power forward in an era when we were still looking at the crawl. Malone's and charles barkley's in the power guys. I tell me if i'm wrong. I think some to some extent. There's this image of him that maybe he didn't have something there was something else missing. And maybe that's stuck with all these years what did you. What was your sense of of chris. Webber the the the personality in the player and end the impressions of him. In real time. I was thoroughly impressed policy web every since i met him watching the way he went about his business. But i i think you're right. There were times when web spoke up but in many ways he he led his game speed for him because he was a material player. He played with his with his brain..

"I've seen other series. Maybe other teams that might hover in that territory. I don't think i've seen anybody anything that that rivals that rivalry. It was a blast. Your team so you mentioned. The sports illustrated cover story from back in the day. And i think that was a phil taylor story but it was. It was basically you guys were the greatest show on on the court which is true for sure at the time and i looked at that team two ways you guys were absolutely ensemble cast and over your right shoulder as we're talking here on zoom there's the ensemble bibi pasia yourself. Vlad eight see web an great bench guys like hito bobby jackson jason williams before bibi. Of course like those were great teams in terms of death. And it wasn't ensemble like everybody had a really critical role to play but to me. It was an on samba cast. That doesn't go anywhere without chris. Webber as talented as as weber. Your your defensive chops. It's still about like chris. Webber was the one guy who made it go so we are now law far for new removed. And you and i are old enough that there's a group of fans watching now who didn't see cookley at that level. The way i did. Explain what chris webber was at that time and especially given what the power forward in the nba was at that time outside of him. And i get to. But i'll say also say back Developed in a loud with to be all the he could be Seen web was so far ahead of the curve.

Royal treatment: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry detail racism, suicidal thoughts in Oprah tell-all
"Tonight. Buckingham palace bracing for the fallout after prince. Harry and duchess meghan. Markle broke their silence with a withering set of allegations against the palace including racist remarks by a member of the royal family in what may be the biggest threat to the modern monarchy. Here's abc's deborah roberts scathing accusation from one of their own megan shared with us. There was a conversation with you about archie skin tone. What was that conversation. But conversion harry and meghan lane accusations of racism at the feet of the monarchy telling winfrey that a senior member of the royal family wonder how dark skin would be in those months when i was pregnant all around the same time so we have in tandem. The conversation of he won't be given security. It's not going to be given title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born. What and who. Who is having that conversation with you. What going to tell me who the conversation. I think that would be very damaging to them. The palace has yet to comment but the allegation detonated like a bomb. The news so explosive. Harry clarifying an important point with on. Cbs this morning. We certainly knew that meghan struggled with issues to do with race and racism during times of working member of the royal family particularly in sections of the press. What we didn't know until megan's interview was of course that shade experienced it within the royal family is something that will absolutely send shockwaves through the palace. Harry described at least by all accounts A monarchy that is Archaic out of touch bigoted possibly racist. Was that shocking to you. Absolutely not no no no the institution that is royal family has in the past number of years the found wanting it'd be found to be out of touch with its own people you only have to look at the backlash of the royal family. Had when princess. Diana passed away. The fact that it didn't occur to the institution that they need to come out and express sorrow express compassion with the rest of the people. Tells you exactly why it's case that did not surprise me. The big aji doesn't surprise me. The racism does not surprise me as for longtime royal watchers and the british public. Many are coming to the monarchy's defense a really see the point of insulting a ninety four year old woman and her family rest of her family and leaving unsavory was unsavory remarks about racism which. I really not backed up by factors. I can see if you're gonna make claims that big claims you really have to make it very clear what you're saying. We'll have a real family and speak jim. Just just be careful because they had country and we love them to bits and ain't got long left. I just leave him alone by the anyway. Some pushing back against the implication archie would not be a prince in part because of his race imaging. Lloyd webber has long followed the royal family shea at the moment doesn't qualify to be a prince only the grandchildren of monarchs get to be print so princess otherwise to any royals too. Many members of the royal family on she is the great grandchild of the queen so that full doesn't qualify for the title. Now the queen made an exception for george charlotte and louis because george one day will be king. Archie won't be if harry's wife had been white would the same thing apply that aren't you would not have been a prince absolutely so it had nothing to do with nothing to do with rice. Aren't you could become a prince. When grandfather prince charles becomes king. How is this playing out particularly among black britons today. We'll see the structural reasons of what it is. What i find particularly interesting. Is that people think that supporting the monarchy means. You can't hold them to account the queen is not beyond reproach the royal family's not beyond reproach it they do something wrong. We should call it out. Another bombshell megan saying her emotional distress was far deeper and more painful than anyone knew revealing. How while pregnant with archie. She was struggling with isolation and had suicidal thoughts. I just didn't. I just didn't want to be alive anymore. And that was very clear and real and frightening constant thought. She says she asked buckingham palace for help but was rebuffed. Megan telling oprah it all came to a head more than two years ago that day she inhering looked the picture of happiness at royal albert hall but behind their smiles up painful truth. We had to go to this event and i remember him saying. I don't think you can go. And i said i can't be left alone. I was also shocked by megan's revelation that she was happy suicide. The thought it just makes me feel that. What have they done to megan. Megan like like me as an independent woman. A career woman well educated women. What happened to lead her to that position. That made me sad. Mental health has long been an important cause. For harry and brother. William founding the initiative heads together to end the stigma around it for monica that talks openly about mental health and even run so important initiatives such as heads together which talks about the importance of it being ok to say it really goes against everything that the palisade that they stand for when someone like meghan being so alone and feeling those laws megan's time as a royal got off to a shaky start megan herself admitting she was unprepared for life in the royal family. She didn't know what it meant to be a working world that she went into it naively that she didn't know how to curtsy. And i was crossed with harry. Harry watched his brother spend eight years giving kate time. What was he doing. Why didn't he tell them. Why didn't he coughed a meghan. So you fault. Harry for allowing meghan be so naive hub -solutely. The couple has never made a secret of their bitter resentment of the british tabloids especially in what they see as a double standard of the coverage between and megan. The press was also very tough on. Kate middleton it was quite vicious toward her but it seemed to be different when it came to megan. What she went through is nothing compared to what making us through and you have to look at the comparisons they make constantly between and catherine that is just another example of how they're trying of how the press tried to drive a wedge throughout the jaw dropping interview prince harry and meghan praise the queen but harry could hardly conceal an apparent deep rift with his father. Prince charles i feel really let down. I will always love him. But there's a law of heart that's happened. He even offered his shocking detail that after leaving the uk last year. His father for a time didn't take his phone calls. Swati stopped taking your calls. Because i took matters and by that point i took matters into my own hands.

R. the plants for the filling the file got in California this is why does everything was shutting down in mid March in U. appointment last days we could have done it we gotta talk over there a couple of great pictures and make videos suggesting that really helped make the story and then I just kept talking to them and you know get more detail at the earliest years of compounding then yeah finally is able to get me to deal with one of the top you know manufacture accurately tell me all the the seven different chemicals went into this and they get a twenty five different steps and you can compare the two making a very yeah yes the very specific or local of type of gratitude bakery if you don't if you don't already huge amount of your specially flower advance you have to wait for the new crop wheat to grow up to be a big delay that's right January all the specialty ingredients in the right order the flyers in China and Europe Wayans dance I was like the biggest smartest thing that they did yeah it's that's really such a key detail what to bring into Weber the editor of Bloomberg business week he joins us from Brooklyn and jolt you put this on the cover it makes a huge amount of sense because it's such a good read give us the contact from your perspective because you're looking across all of these stories not just as it relates to the crown of ours but across the world of business you know I think the story's significance is is huge and it's also the way that I I think is the best part of it but this is almost like the most hopeful news the only hopeful news basically to date in this coronavirus saga you either with like it it feels like it one bit of bad news after not act and it's almost like this cacophony of incompetence sometimes and so what I think Bob will be able to do in this Gilead story was actually shows like here's a good example of like one of the only ones really of a company that had incredible foresight and preparedness and you know how do you not actually ordered the raw materials that they needed to actually make this creep back in January even before it was you know before we knew how bad this was going to be having not done that back then we would not have the treatment that we certainly you know I like to be sure this is not a cure it's a treatment it takes corona virus from being fifteen gate operation down to maybe like eleven Coolidge down to like a linen suit you know if it's a modest improvement over nothing but at least it's something and you don't bother are you sort of you know reported around if you know if it's actually even more incredible than that because this is a drug that actually you know it's been around for like eleven years now and it never could find a purpose even right what what's the backstory you know the first thing that is you know looking for hepatitis C. drugs that was hard to administer the a better one for pills with conditional for that and then you know they tried it for a bola and they spend years on that you know because the first attempt to prolong a ball out quicker than the outbreak faded before they could get into even falls lake Catherine reasonable outbreak and then it didn't work that well so they are but in the end so they're trying to figure out what to do next and when the moment came along and they didn't have the thing that he definitely was I did not in January they didn't assume the best case scenario they didn't play has to wait a few weeks we'll see if this goes away because they're gay in case this is a pandemic worker or a whole bunch of stuff right now and it's just very different from what a lot of other folks did I have to say what's really cool in the story and if if people don't totally understand how significant this is it you're right Mr how Anthony Fauci has pointed out that he is like in the trial of ambassador to the first big trial of AZ T. the first drug for HIV right and so then you understand because that too was something we just couldn't figure out a treatment and so you understand Bob how room disappear is really a first very important step well yeah absolutely I mean the way to think of this is as a first step or first thing over again as the sea of going to self censor any a lot more drugs they're working on better drugs and better ways to administrative right now to confusion and we're definitely gonna need vaccines this doesn't solve the problem this is you know and as you said the first up from the second you know hospitalized patients in this reporter Robert Langer and of course Joe Webber the editor of Bloomberg business week and Carol what I really liked about this story from the pretty arresting cover image all the way through the pieces we talk so much about sort of botched response in on preparedness this was a case where a company anticipated some of this a lot still to be seen about whether this will be the drug that we need but I a company in the

"And capsized the city's once optimistic revenue projections the mayor is quoted as saying sounds more like me but there's a mayor Webber who will be with us tomorrow the mayor said quote if you're feeling angry frustrated sad matter just plain fed up because this whole situation really sucks I agree it does suck the mayor said at the beginning the meeting last night and if you want someone or something to blame blame cove in nineteen go nineteen as like a thief in the night this knock into our home and stole our money our sense of security our nest egg for future investments and left us with a forty six million dollar debt to pay unquote furloughs are projected to save one point four three million dollars or just three percent of the total budget gap the city needs to close city also plans to freeze nonessential spending restrict overtime implement other cost cutting measures that will generate about twenty nine point five million dollars in savings there's a danger to count in today's Mexican despite the belt tightening the city still faces sixteen point five million dollars for fall which Mary McCoy the city finance director said would largely be filled using the city fourteen million dollar rainy day fund five to four vote came after a four hour discussion and debate the grew more testy as the hours wore on city councilor Joanne veal Cappelaere said she voted against it she said what I've learned from this is when you want to slam dunk your plan use up the clock so there's no room for creative collaboration only the plan of the Victor she added it's okay I've learned from this to leave the policy makers out of the real discussions I've also learned that we're going to keep the high earners high in the lower orders low when it comes to losing money and the lower paid employees are the ones who do the work fairly aggressive comments from one of the four city councilors who voted against it from district or for that would be counter Joanne V. helicopter fifteen minutes after one o'clock Daniel and talk well sixty one of three seven good afternoon Daniel hi there Richard how are you today Daniel or Danielle it's a Danielle okay I'm sorry go ahead yeah I just had a thought the other day well we're spending all this time at home I'm started to clean out closets and stuff and get rid of things that I don't need anymore and do a little painting and I have two things that I'm saving that I need to donate and there's no place to take donations over my garage is getting a little bit filled up and I was wondering there are so many places that are close right now whether they be schools with gymnasiums or areas where it might be possible to somehow to just open up the space where if people are amassing a lot of stuff like I am where they could take this stuff and then when everything gets a little better if somebody can come and go through it or the various organizations that need donations and since the virus doesn't live that long on objects if this stuff was sitting in there for a couple of weeks it's likely would not in fact anybody and that way we don't have to then I think a lot of stuff is going to end up in the trash and going to the dump that could be used by somebody and I just had that idea and if anybody out there do anything like that it would be great all right we're gonna nominate you to organize it if anybody has a vacant warehouses sounds perfect for warehouse get Danielle would like to organize that or do I have that right he just nominated yeah I know it's a great idea you always want to pass the Buck like like you know let Joe do it can mean idea for I don't want to do it I just thought it might be a nice idea it is you know it's it's an excellent idea yeah all right what kind of stuff do you have anything on one RP doubtful because it's all going to be ladies clothes it's not I mean unless you're of no no don't start with it Daniel don't I have a plan B.

"This is mark Webber in the world we're in this is a different world some day it goes back to the world we knew tonight I want to talk a little bit more about this this and stay on this course the tip right out of the bath you and those you managers decision makers anybody who has to make a decision about important things I have a tip for you if anybody was to call you and say to you in the spirit of partnership if they begin that speech if they send you a letter or an email run hang up the phone delete the email that's cold front room not paying you in the spirit of partnership is like Madison Avenue one way one way their way not to believe you have to take a tough stance in business but then all of a sudden these times of common they're unpredictable no one knows how to behave everyone is fighting to survive and it depends on who you want to be announced so if you want to be in the decision making I've learned a lot of things in business along the way and tonight on the show we're taking unique look at business politics in life and we'll throw in some lessons along the way in the world of the corona virus I believe as a general course of events that management is allowed to manage to manage particularly in crisis now we know we're in the middle of a force of cardinal could control what's going on with this pandemic nobody has the right answers but I tell you management has the right to manage and it's management's job to get everyone on the same page yes you throw the glass which is the home of a bit of sleaze but that was his last posting in the same direction otherwise who can say how long yes there is fast within all of our ships will sail in the same direction no leader you get to control the narrative you have to be in a position to understand what you're doing and what the message you want to say in times of difficulty in this case times of crisis president like him love him hate him whatever he's in a unique very difficult position on one hand he's trying to keep a soul com he's trying to paint a country in the best possible circumstances he can he's trying to give hope he's trying to talk to the future he's trying to put this all behind us and every time he does it he's getting criticized for playing down the difficulty of this virus is sweeps across the country he's trying to give us hope on the other hand when these hardcore any talks about sacrificing lives in favor of the economy he gets in order for taking a hardline approach now I happen to not want to hear that I happened to hear he spoke on Saturday brilliantly when he said number one is first is lives health safety and then the economy and that's the way I think it would be my question is do you think it's right for the president to not give the American people the full story or all the details and to downplay it because of fear and he doesn't want people to get scared I mean is that his job or should he just be one thousand percent transparent about the danger I think the president any leader in businesses obligation to control the narrative here's a decision to make what signals does he want to send to the people of the United States we have a CIA out there doing all kinds of crazy things dealing with mad men dealing with difficult countries dealing with terrorists we don't want them telling us everything that's going on we want to know that are keeping us safe if I ask you what time it is I want you to tell me the time I don't want you to tell me how to build the watch not everything is our business I don't want to know all the details and slaughter or business I don't want everyone to know everything that's going on it's not our business they have to give us some version of the truth I always believe that there is no such thing as a version of the truth I have never lied.

"This is mark Webber this is always in fashion the show is a little bit of a tongue twister Thomas Jefferson said it best he came up with the idea and he said I'm a great believer in luck but I find the harder I work the more I have of it the shortened version of that is the harder I work the luckier I get I thought I want to talk about look and work with all of you out there I started my career just like a lot of you was young man I didn't have a clue who I was and what I was not a clue one thing I knew when I started work is that I had to be curious that I had to want to learn how to impress the people that I was around nothing else thing else I knew that I had to work harder than anyone else in order to compete I didn't know if I could be better than them but I knew I could work harder than them and I do believe that that hard work helped me to a great extent I wrote a book I haven't talked about this in what I've written two books a second book was called always in fashion those of you out there go out and buy it I'd like to see people buy in my book I think they're a lot of great lessons a little little self promotion never heard anybody say you know it's a pretty good dollars in fashion we're selling a book here at twenty nine ninety nine all right if it works but anyway in my book I did a chapter once in my life I was brilliant I want to talk to about that finding your brilliance at work hi Michael if you knew nothing about anything when I started I started getting involved in design and I eventually became the head of design for the Drescher division at the venues and company is the largest division was all hundreds of millions of dollars and I watch the system I had a couple designers working for me and we would go with the cold the market we'd walk into these textile offices of the fabric people people who chose the fabric and they would tell us the right to years of why they develop the fabric for the next season and my designers would pick it from here to there so I'll take a little of this will take a little that we would buy these fabrics honestly to want of myself they know what's stripes sort colors to make what do we have to buy it from them interesting question we went to what will cold converters I had never heard of this either I was new to the company in a listing of new treasure what was the converter these were entrepreneurs who flew to Japan Taiwan or Korea and brought back ideas and fabric to sell to Americans manufactures such as ourselves and I'll never forget I would walk into their showrooms and they show me a much designers these ideas for shirts and perhaps one was a light blue let's say this is a beautiful light blue and next to it they would paint a version of yellow version of green a version of pink and there before colors that would perfect cast in you with a light blue shirt they bought hi my design it's a set of love that blue I love the pic I love the green and yellow I want ten thousand yards of each bring them into the country so we can manufacture watch this for two or three weeks and even though I was brand new I said this is really bothering me what do I need them for I'm going to these mills in the United States they don't even know who we sell they don't know blooming bills they don't know Macy's the farmer moved from the customer so woman showing me ideas on what fabrics my customers one hundred you know better than me another thing I miss my quality I should have been a converter these guys got the life the travel of the world to buy shirts to bring me back show me the shirts that someone in the back room who paints all the colors of the shirts they buy they tell me here I should buy these four colors that we give the mortars for tens of thousands of jobs the of fabric to make insurance in United States and then they go overseas and they buy and sell it to us when they make a fortune selling at less expensive than the United States this doesn't make sense to me we should be doing this ourselves so I started to think about it and then one day luck the theme of tonight's show happened I would very often be assigned to go to the factory and the fabric warehouse luck would have it the theme of tonight's show I was in the fabric warehouse identifying fabric then all of a sudden I noticed that all the fabric there we were buying from the converters had the names of the mills in Japan and Taiwan and Korea the three converters will buying from it was printed right on the packaging of the fabric so this big secret like coca Cola formula of what these converters was selling was now in front of me I wrote down all the names to cut pieces I had the factory cut me pieces of the fabric with the names were attached I brought them back to the vice president and general manager Drescher division I said his name was David cells of may he rest in pieces of David I found out what mark I found there were all these fabrics are commercial have the names of all of it I was in the fabric warehouse here they are I said this been bothering me I. should review the ball just me going the mill somebody seems to tell us what to buy as we now know where they buy from I can go to Europe by my own church design my own line let's hire a few painters let's buy this fabric was self he looked at me like I was crazy but a light would office said said let me think about it mark cutting out the middle man next thing I know the lady comes back he said mark you when I go to Europe and Asia said you're kidding this is the we're going we're going to go take care of it and see if we can do it he and I we flew to Europe I bought a bunch of shirts found some painters in Europe to paint me other colors we went then to Asia first trip Taiwan that was a mill culture her they're making six million yards of fabric of month I never heard of them before they knew everything there was to know about making shirt fabric we bought from them we went to Japan visited Barabanki toy maker Mitsubishi all of them making fabrics that everyone in the world was purchasing and we gave them orders at the end of this trip I realized that we could do S. ourselves and we gave these purchase orders we bought about two hundred fifty thousand yards as soon to deliver to us in the United States to Ozark Alabama we're all factories were the next thing you know we're porting fabrics from around the world and we became independent and I invented a system that had never existed before in our company and over the next five years your body here mark Webber set up a system to design an import or export around the world because she started making production outside the United States twenty five million yards of fabric a year I became famous in Japan in Taiwan and Korea became the largest textile buyer from the United States and I became well known and successful in my company once in my life I was brilliant now you may say I got lucky and I did you may say I got smart and I was you could also say I was very curious and like so many of the people today is the change world dramatically with the internet new ways of selling retail closing shopping online everything that's going on rent the runway you look at where the world's going it's coming from people who are curious will revolutionizing systems who changing the way we do things they're being disruptive all for the good this is lucky yes what I rather be lucky than smart yes but I will also tell you I believe in luck and the harder I work the luckier I seem to be we'll be back in a minute always in fashion this is mark Webber this is always in fashion and I want to talk to about the K. Y. I spent nine years at the Donna Karen DKNY company it was one of my proudest moments DKNY was launched in the nineties it was one of the truly truly innovative brands well it was classic can design it was modernised flavor it's articulated what a young modern New York person would dress like the okay the fashion capital of the world I'm sure you'll agree with that with Paris my friends in France would argue that Paris is the fashion capital of the world probably right from their perspective the home of all those luxury brands but I gotta tell you New York leads the world in style and fashion so many things this is a city of opportunity the land of opportunity New York is the most vibrant city in the world they can argue all they want about that one the buildings may be beautiful but so is ours and.
