Elimination Communication with Go Diaper Free Founder Andrea Olson
"You were saying. You're hardly ever pooped in a diaper. So people listening are like wilbon. Where did they poop in the toilet or with breastfed baby. I let mine poop in the sink better for my back and it just rinse down and it's my sink but you know in the toilet There are these little top hat potties. Also start. I brought those to market a couple years ago because they stopped making them in singapore but in third world countries. You'll come across these top half hotties that you hold between your legs and They go in that. So yeah instead of using the diaper as a toilet use the toilet as a toilet from whenever you hear about e. c. and ec. Elimination communications. Basically you start any time between here. Eighteen months and it's based on their inborn instinct. They don't like their mammals. We are all mammals. And no ma'am all likes to soil. They're den or their caregiver or themselves so when they're crying and crying and you're like oh i've tried everything i've tried the breasts of trade to shush and the five s.'s. The whole harvey carb thing. Nothing is working. My baby is still crying. Then you look in their debris and you're like oh you and poop. You just wanted to be changed. It's actually not what was happening if you rewind a little bit. They're crying so you would take the thing off. Take the diaper off so that they could go hygienically. And if you think about it we wouldn't have lasted this long as a human species if we weren't born with those instincts to be clean and dry and so babies are constantly communicating to their parents. Hey i need this or any of that and with you see is just a matter of figuring out what that is for your baby and yeah it doesn't. There's no i'm too late. And there's no oh i have to do this. Full on every single line poop ec as an exposure technique so literally whenever you find out about it before eighteen months is all good and then yeah you totally do get to start wrapping it up at eleven months or even if you kind of have asked started or whatever and then you're like okay. I'm going to get serious now. She's walking This is a great time. Because in montessori school of thought this is the sensitive period twelve to eighteen months where this is their developmental task so they actually really want control over this during that period. So we always. I always recommend wrapping it up starting at walking and then yet by the time eighteen months comes around like if you remove the diapers early enough. It's so much easier and babies rise to the occasion. They're like oh and they've been watching you. They've been watching you and you're going bathroom and they're like i want to do that and i'm walking and i can and it like it's so straightforward of their instincts

"Sports on peacock in this rich eisen show. Radio network terrestrial satellite and streaming. Police have back here. One of my favorite people. That i'm so thrilled to be able to call a friend. And for the first time on this program a hall of famer physcially from espn and their nba coverage and the terrific. Pardon the interruption. Our friend michael wilbon. How are you sir rich. I'm pretty good. How are you doing. I'm hanging in there so There's so much going on my gosh. I'm just going to dive right into it if you don't mind Did you see what scottie pippen had to say on our friend Dp show today. I just i just saw a luckily thank you for you. I i was. I was starting a sleep marathon last night when i got back from From clippers sons and that that was that was going to mean about fifteen hours up on days without it. And so i saw nothing on my own. Thankfully your producer sent me this I say thankfully so. I can be aware and i just looked at it and shook my head and i you know i don't i don't know i know i. I start to scotty occasionally And sometimes like during previous seasons. It'd be more than occasionally because we would work together on rachel show on the job and and No scotty for a long. Long time. I i. i don't have any extra knowledge. I have no special intel on this. I looked at it and went. What like probably most people did so. I'm just. I'm just catching up. And then we're all going to have to react to it and to whatever comes from it the reactions to the reactions but Yeah i'm just. I'm just now seeing know half an hour stoke. So what were your boots. On the ground recollection of the ku coach and pippen moment back in the day We'll look at it was it was it was as dramatic as as nba can get I was at the game And immediately i didn't know. I didn't realize this guy who was on the court coming out of that time out and then you look look looking. You're wondering what's going on and all flash But and there was you know there was no social media of course to just dissect it over and over and over again a million times in the next you know forty eight hours and it was. It was it. Was you know scottie's low moment and it's certainly a moment that i know he hated having to relive during the last dance I did you know communicate with him. After that. And i you know. I was one of those people who is critical. You know how could you. How could you not be. I also think that the moment. Unfortunately and i talked to scott that that that game that moment You know it. Colour him for a long time. And i thought i came to rich that it. It couldn't be the only thing that that made us think a certain way about skipping because he did win six in one he didn't want to he wants six and michael never one without him and he went on to play for team that should have been in the nba finals. You know the portland trailblazers. Nineteen point lead in the fourth quarter of a game. Seven against the lakers. Kobe and shaq and i don't know how that winning and getting to the finals. It's interesting how that might have changed further the narrative but i thought we were away from this. I thought i thought we were away from this. I said written public scotty. I'm not gonna solely judge you. By worst moment. None of us wants to be judged that way and his career has too much else in it. The resumes to full. And you know now. I hear this. I don't i. Don't i don't know what to think you michael wilbon here on the rich eisen show Just for you know. completion for the moment Pippen has just tweeted out. I'm just answering the questions. Y'all asking me you wanted the headlines you got them dig deeper to find out. Why actually said what i said. Instead of framing your questions to get clicks it's all love as with a heart emoji What do you think that means to find out i do. He's winning. I learned not to do rich Put too much into answers that come via social media. There's not discussion is social media. I don't know what it means. I can't. I can't tell you what it means. I can react to. Who i think phil jackson is and was in in my experience and i did not. I would not around fill every day. The people who the people who i will listen to on this will be And what they say are the people who played fulfil and one with him. So you know. I i know those men Obviously starting with michael jordan will be asked. I don't know how he will weigh in on so many others ron harper. Who i know. I wanna hear what ron harper i wanna hear would be armstrong has to say i wanna hear what steve kerr you know. Tony coup coach I i you know have been on a golf course a few times or sony which is a five hour. Fun fast i i. I would love to have four hours or five hours of access to tony today. so i i'm not gonna i don't i'm too old and too not of the generation to spend hours even minutes trying to figure out what people are saying with emojis and you know just secret phrases. That are not meant for me for my thirteen year. Old son i mike and mike. I can't do that. But but i want. I want to hear in in order to to get. Because you're gonna have to but it won't. I don't know what love means. I mean a everybody others these phrases these days using means nothing and you have to beneath it is asking. The question is is going to be asking the questions with scotty. Men who are on that team right. And so i guess the last one for you on this subject before we go to the here now. And micheal. wilpon is what what what. What can you tell me about the pippen jordan relationship. Because it's clearly something that pip pip and also said to dan that the the nba Entertainment cameras that picked up the huddle in which michael was seeming to be absolutely fine as well as be at the forefront of setting up for winning shot that we all know in the last dance about Was a setup. It was jordan knowing that the cameras were there and then he would control it for documentary. And i just seems to be a lot of calm a lot of confusing statements what it was all. They have a complex for the. They've had a complex relationship. I don't think any we. We saw that in the documentary. Which explains it much more than any. You know individuals statements. Well we saw that and and you know there was a time when they didn't i you know i don't know that it was ever in my view hostile. It was just. They are very different. People had a complex relationship. Which michael we know from the last dance. Just scottie pippen. But we know. Steve kerr you know we. We know those stories now And i i believe. I know that some of the reliving that i got i got i know Did it hurt him. To re reliving of these moments that her in the beginning i if if they were conflicts her thirty years ago then we know what they must feel like thirty years later They were never the best of friends. I mean there are people on the team. Michael was closer to bj armstrong. I'm there with people on the team that you know the irony of scotty and coup coach and they're hoping in the olympics. The dream team is got that toni kukoc and he became very close And you know when you mentioned scotty to throw. Only he was called a pip. And he'd have a smile on his face and scotty became very much as big brother. is is i interpreted from both of them So but these things are not. They're not gonna change right the relationships that you can't undo the relationships. You can't redo the relations mulligan you know Pun intended on these relationships. They were conflicts a year ago. Would we finish watching the last dance right about now. Maybe a month earlier price and So this is what it is and there was less examination of fill and the guys i mean mike has told me. Get to fill for a second He told me that the three most important in life and quoted him somewhere doing this washington post In live tommy. The three most important in his life were his father. Dean smith and phil jackson And in the context. I'd have to go back and get the context. I don't know petankis was well. Tv basketball because his dad right the headliner and obviously we know that that comes with no secret So that relationship. Maybe it was left conflict. I don't i don't i don't know that all of us know maybe chicago beat riders. Know a ton about phil's relationship with scotty other than one point eight seconds. Maybe michael von here on the rich eisen show. Pardon the interruption and of course the nba coverage that were were locked into With it appearing to be. Michael is it fair to say where we got sons bucks on the horizon.

"Was my high school biology teacher from one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine hundred ninety. Eight mr burgas. He was known then was a young energetic teacher. Right out of college. He started a biology club. Not only did we do large projects associated with birds but he also took the club to montana during the summer to dig dinosaur fossils in fact it was on the inaugural trip that i was introduced to my future. Wife tina along with mr berg taking us hiking on a trail with the most brown bear attacks in the lower forty eight and mr berg getting a speeding ticket in montana where there is no speed limit. It's great to know he's a little. I wish him hardy lychees arri and hope to see him.

I'm taking her on a trip to the finger lakes region new york right now. She has no idea where we're going on our trip. Which begins june eighth. I would love for her to hear our destination from you since your voice has annoyed her for years and we both get ready to go to school and i have a podcast radio show playing also. If you have any places we should visit in the finger lakes region especially the binghamton area please indulge. Thank you for many years of laughter and entertainment my knowledge. The greater dc area politics news now far exceeds my knowledge of things happening in northern missouri. So i never thought of binghamton as in the finger lakes area Because we're not. I think we're a little bit south of the finger lakes area. I would say the finger lakes area is more around ithaca and syracuse and the saratoga. I think those goes all the way to saratoga. Goes all the way east to saratoga.

"Was it was difficult to gain a foothold. but once we did and got really good But you know tony the funny part about it is my my senior year. We went thirty seven three and lost in the championship game. And and i. I think if i remember right i don. I don't remember graduating thinking. Well this is just the beginning. I mean this is. The people are going to accept this because there's going to be so much greater stuff coming after that. I mean i think there was a feeling that that when we lost him a championship game that we might not have a team not good again and he might have six or seven. That were that good or better and and one five champ. You know he could. We should have won. I think they should have won in nineteen ninety nine. I mean he could have eight Now he could lost at the kentucky and other things that reduce that number. But but if you're if you give him the nba's favorable You you could say he could have eight. You couldn't have. Nobody could have known what he would turn into what he would be as you've seen the development over the years i've gotta think that by the way teeny olympic team has a lot to do with it a lot to do with his reputation and the goodwill that he engendered over the years but how has he changed as a man. Has he changed as a coach. Have you seen those changes. Or is this essentially who he was even as a kid and while that the value system and the core of him is the same But everything else is is way better He's a better coach in every way Us a better leader He handled situations better. He delegates authority. He's i think he's learned so much and is applied all of that to to his job But but as far as like being the same guy away from his job I think he strikes the same court a lot But i don't think you can accomplish what he's accomplished and be be exactly the same And and i do give credit to this factor to that i. I'm for those that say. Hey he's he's changed Because there are some that say that i. I don't think it's so much him. I think it's people around him. You know with the way he gets treated the way he has to do. Things now You know his first answer used to be yes to everything and that's that's impossible now. Given sort of who he is and all he has to do but but he's still the same really good guy that he's always been and and that's a really cool thing And.

"Buzz around the program about his status got worse and so there were times where we were we were. We talked about it. What happens if they fire him they. It was very real possibility to us now. He says that that he didn't think he knew it wasn't going to happen. That kind of thing that he trusted tom. Butters the athletic director. And the president all as they work at a folded trigger on it but But boy it was a negative feeling around the program. And and i actually asked my dad like i if if they fire him. I'm not leaving i. I'm not saying they're leaving. And i remember my dad saying you just calm down like there's nothing you can do about it just playing and That's not your area so so you quit like game planning this and and just playing. He was right. I shouldn't have worried about it as much but you know it seems kind of silly now. But they had there was a petition that was circling around. I never saw it. But i was told about it. By one of the no booster club members Who was a father of a friend of ours. And and i couldn't believe he actually told us that was going on. You know we're like this. Is our coach. Like why would you. Why would you tell us that but but it was pretty negative the first year and then then the my second year we started winning and and and nationally ranked and all that stuff and it. It sounds crazy but a lot of the most of the people that were circulating those petitions so on now by by you know if you tell somebody hey you know. They were thinking about firing him. They they they don't believe well. I mean just just working on a memory. There's jay bilas. there's marc alary. There's danny ferry. Johnny dawkins tommy anchor. Right i mean these.

Nobody sees such a talent with every other facet of for game and he think there's technology out there that can help you with this. She almost missed the ball. But how about the playoff. The playoff was wonderful. The playoff was wonderful to watch. I was in a very bad mood because of the washington. Nationals 'cause they stink beyond words. Let's be honest about this. The hitting coach should be fired and the pitching coach should be fired. You bring in. What's that guy's name finnegan. And he walks into runs with bases. Loaded the pitching coach. What do you tell them how you preparing him for this. You should be fired hitting coach games already over to me. It's the only down there only down to at that game. But it's the top of the third. They have a chance to break the game open. And you have your big offseason acquisitions schwartz strike out and before you get those those bases loaded walk of just the quirkiest little sun angles. Ball's bouncing out of gloves at a losing team. Did it just there a last place team and they ought to shake it up. They ought to fire some people. And if that doesn't work they ought to go higher. Because bell and schwab have failed. They have failed. Tanno rainy comes in last night. You know hadn't seen him in a week. Happily comes in and immediately reminds me why i hate him so much comes in summer storm reruns right away. Finnegan couldn't get anybody out when he was in there. And even when they score a few runs that it's fruitless it's just fruitless and they. I don't know it was a bummer. To see austin both have to come out early in the face. What does the other pitcher doing hit in the pitcher in the folks. It's one of those weird things. I was not intentional. But you really. You hit him in the face okay. You're coming out of the game. You're download them out like in hockey. Just removing throwing out. You know d- queuing. Somebody forcing them to withdraw. Seems a bit drastic but you know trying to level the playing. You didn't like the wrong decision at all. I it's it's a tough catch twenty two they They kicked jon. Rahm out faster than if you tried to say. Let's go brooks to bryson shambo. Now that they followed the rules they can defend themselves into the long hours. Your solution was interesting. We'll tell the people you are solution. How would you have let him play. I just wish they would have tried to come up with some solutions because the science gives us actual data points as to how we can safely be around somebody who has a who has a positive test so whether that was sending him out as a single early in the morning person out before anyone else teed up having let him to score up maybe jack has market driving around in a golf cart tending the flagstone and heavy tournament that resembles something full and i understand the arguments about the competitive equity that you wanna maintain and trying to see leaders going off around each other okay. Put him out in the last group and have You know can't lay and more college go out as a two ball right by them so they can at least see what he's doing hole by hole at this point you shouldn't be worried about pace of play and it's just this weird thing where he was already under the strict protocol where he was not allowed to go inside. He had limited access to everything. So if you're able to say his playing partner the that day did not pass the the exposure level where they had to then go into contact tracing themselves. You probably could've figured out a way to keep him on the grounds to post number. They seemed much more comfortable having fans running around screaming and you know drinking as many beers as they could yelling at people rather than trying to to play golf term but again this is not just the tour. This is state guidelines a cdc recommendations. But you'd want to say we have the data. Let's try and see how we can come up with a solution even if we're doing it on the fly by the way speaking of Boisterous behavior ninety year european. Where was that. Soccer game played yesterday between the united states in mexico. A believe that was in mexico wasn't it. I don't know i'm asking in the united states or denver. How did it. How did it happen that that mexican fans were throwing bottles onto the field constantly. How did that happen. You know it was really bad. Just throwing balls. Not like the old fedex fedex field situation where there are turning the old beer bottles into knives throwing bottles throwing bottles you know. They're you know they're just it's terrible. That was just terrible terrible. And i think that they were the mexican fans i think. It came from their particular corner of the stadium. It was a home game for the united states but for some reason it was played in in denver. Right show on. Why was we played in denver. Think that it just go to 'cause they're playing it in the united states the oh the concacaf. That's the limit of my sock. Probably got that wrong. We'll take a break. We'll come back.

"Race unfolded well. Every he was the favourite so i was not emotionally invested or financially invested. As i was the derby. I watched this as a fan and You know. I don't think people realize most people in racing seem to realize yet how terrific this belmont was The these In the top. Two horses both ran tremendous races. The the the beyer speed figure For this race of one hundred nine which was the best in the belmont since two thousand three These these The top two horses. both ran faster in our estimation than the triple crown winners american phero And justify did in any of their three triple crown wins. That's how good it was so. Yeah i was watching it. I loved it. Just love watching latino race. I i've said this many times before. I think the nbc production the hour hour and a half before. The belmont is brilliantly conceived. they go from person to person to tape to live. It's just really well done in the race. Set a beautifully. It was a gorgeous day the last quarter. These two horses are head to head. And i know this is gonna sound stupid andy but because essential quality is a big gray horse. You always know when he's making a move right. And i'm assuming i'm assuming that when when it was a two-horse race you had a certain amount of confidence in essential quality. Yeah but the other horse wasn't giving up Hot rod charlie a fighter But i think this you know after this race proved to be so good You can go back and look at the triple crown and reexamined it and my my conclusion is that although i gave myself a lot of credit for for for picking the twelve to one derby winner With the benefit of hindsight i was lucky The the this race showed how good essential quality is and in in the in the derby He he was part wide almost all the way around the track Well Well my horse medina's spirit was on the near the rail saving grand and the post race dade show that essential quality traveled like sixty feet farther than Medina spirited which is about six legs. I think stats like that can sometimes be Misleading but in fact A central quality did improve by about six links. It in the belmont. And so i looked back at you know at my intellectual triumph. Picking medina spirit. I was plenty. Lucky if if essential quality hadn't had that trump tough trip I mean he he would have won. The derby. Medina spirit would have lost And now flash forward to the belmont and the way it was run the Hot red charlie's best previous rays of his life was one where he had gone to the front and fought to the you know fought for the lead all the way that was in the louisiana derby really gutsy race so the trainer decided well. We're we're gonna do that. And so he would when the gate opened he he blasted out And another horse in the race had the same idea. Rock your world and the two of them ran a the first quarter mile In various at a pace that was breathtaking. We remember secretary at leading all the way in the belmont they were in much faster. The first quarter mile than secretariat and meanwhile essential quality was kind of sitting. You know you're with stocking the lead leading bad each others heads in and You know and and then he when he made his move Hot rod. Charlie should have been ready to fold but hot rod. Charlie just kept fighting back and He lost by link. But i mean it was a terrific effort and i think most i think most handicappers would look at this race and say Hot rod charlie gave the better performance. i mean they were both very good but he. He really earned the plus for effort and in this race so if if the race had ridden run more truly all the derby races had been I'm sorry the triple crown races had been running the different way. I would have had my usual Triple crown record of going over three a two. We got to for three. And i'll get you out of here on this so many people of course emailed us thanking you for your and they bet with you. Did you bet this source alone or did you bet it in combination into you have a great this one There were no exact. Paid fifteen dollars for two so there was no. There was no great money to be made. I bet a trifle i You know the the derby was my race this year. Andy thanks so much we appreciate it. I'm glad you want thank you. Andy andy buyer boys and girls. Two out of three two out of three is pretty good. And he's right. He usually gets nothing right on the triple crown. But it's always a pleasure to have him. Michael is here back from his trip. Michael went to south carolina. I went to delaware for a couple of days. Anything extraordinary happened that you wanna talk about. Well this is our first trip through the airport and it was not as terrifying to sort of do the whole mass cup get get in line. Get on the plane. The boys were wonderful. Both lights a little scary for walker because he used to love sitting at the airport watching all of the trucks and all of the loading unloading all the buzzing around and was nervously shaken. Just sort of walking through all those people but you know. It was very comforting. I told you before we went on. It's okay to fly again and that's a really big turning point one big piece of one big piece of luggage though. Didn't make the return flight which meant that. I stayed up very late last night. Just nervously waiting to get that email from a certain airlines that my golf clubs had actually been identified found and not just laying out on the tarmac in savannah. Georgia bacon where you got them. Glad you will get and don't have them yet. They'll deliver them. I played golf a few times.

"wilbon" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Michael Wilbon joins us right now, Michael, How you feeling today, you know, relatively relative to the world. I got some pretty pretty good back in D. C. After 100 days in Arizona, back in DC starts off in Chicago for a day. So You know these? These three places were dramatically different in terms of the way they felt when you were moving about them and moved on Chicago that much, but Back in the nation's capital, which is a very different place in Chicago in a very different place in Arizona, for the guy asked, you know, 34 weeks, you know, I don't think you could describe any of it's good. Just like very different. What did Arizona feel like? When you left? They reported today they had around like 20% positivity rate as Faras. They're testing goes, so there's like one in You know, Almost every four people were testing positive for when you left was the feeling like his things were starting to close down again. They weren't They weren't closing down again. When I left, not a bar's closed down and I'll go to bars. So that didn't have any special field for me. Gym's closed down as well, although some of them had pushed back So there's a little more combative, you know, atmosphere in Arizona when it comes to what people want to do are willing to do so much. I don't know what percentage and I talked to a couple of Friends who are doctors, and one is in emergency medicine. You know, Specialist of the highest order in Arizona. And you know so many of those positive tests are coming out of You know the sort of the party district if you will, a part of the part of old town where young people go on. Just basically say, Yeah, right. I'm done with this. So I don't have anywhere near that. So so, Michael, when we talk to you in August, the first week of August you believe we're going to be talking about Oh, the N ba plans and baseball or do you think that's gonna work? I don't know. I'm still I mean, you know, I know you try to Sylvia. You try to get me me here and you say you hearing me say? I don't know. I don't know. I mean, if the commissioner Of the sport, basketball says. You know, we're not going to do anything that flies in the face of the advice. We're getting. The council were getting my experts. That means he doesn't know that's a very sophisticated It's a smart way of saying we don't know. I think I think I think last week you guys asked me what my confidence level was. Maybe we just talked about Petey. I said a six or seven that we would get to it. Which means you started. I think of seven is a solid way of saying I'm reasonably confident anything. Adam Silver used the words reasonably confident yesterday. In that time, 100 things how they really confident in seven that is going to start to finish. What I think it's going to start. I think the MBA playoffs are going to happen. To what degree? I don't know. Without how many players I don't know. You know, we've got science is telling us that who were projecting at one point it sounded crazy. Having motive was putting that one out of 300 million Americans. We're gonna wind up testing positive or or If they don't test positive, having had 100 million out of Dimension. Lena's one out of three When you say 28% and whatever survey that was in Arizona is like OK. That's where we're going, right? And people don't want to accept that. It's sort of the delusional morons who come up with all your past. That is over now, and I don't have any respect for that for them, and I don't listen to them. And this has got a long way to go. And suppose, is no different sports is just a subset of the culture. So why wouldn't I would see this? College football. We keep going back to how they're gonna play. How is college football going to be staged? When there's no attempted bubble. And kids who when they test positive or not, They gotta go to class of people if they're not going to be in class in his pro sports I'm gonna have to be in class, but that's not going to be tolerated. Whether my parents and I don't know how many of you saw the Washington Post piece that featured Chris, hidden former Northwestern All American and my friend and client schoolmate in our classmate. He and his wife are heavily involved. Assuming they've got one son going to Stanford. I forget where the other son is. Then. You know? How did you stage these seasons? College football? I don't know that they're preparing for. I know the games going on after I came early to see people talking about matchups in big games, and it's one of they shut up. What do you talking about? We don't know if these seasons are going to be staged. The beginning of them. So there's a lot that we just don't know. And I hate when people say we don't know why I am people say what people people fail to say. We don't know. We saw that you know that the N B A is going to be in a bubble. Buster only said this weekend that he believes that there is a 5% chance that the baseball season starts 0% chance that it finishes. Really, he said. 5%. It'd start 5% that started this would play well, but I want you to hear this and I want reaction to this. Just he did tell us that Buster's usually a pessimist on everything so okay, but he was with Dori and Mel this weekend. How confident are you that this season gets finished? 0%? Absolutely. 0%. Based on what I'm hearing. How confident are you that this season gets started with actual games? I would put that at 5%. I think that they're going to atleast try in the next couple weeks, But I Especially in the face of these, you know, spiking numbers. It wouldn't surprise me if Darryl's quickly That's surprising. Isn't it like some reaction is surprising. It is just a Wow. It just hits you in the gut told me not to jump. No, but give people some idea because people don't read anymore. They don't consume news information. They could find it on Instagram Filson. People in only picks up the phone every day of his life. And he calls people and he listens to them is that it's hot. Take He listens to expert. He is listening to scientists and medical experts. Trust me. I know the kind of work Buster does used to some of that work, some of it And I don't hate myself with him for the three years of the Washington Post, you picked up the phone or one is not a time of a pandemic. You walk into somebody's office. You close the door, you say eye level with me. After both their only does so he he didn't wake up and have a hot take people. He's got people on the phone, who are who are in infectious disease, an emergency medicine and in all kinds of science, and he is talking to them and the lease is this is what I'm being told He's not talking about being told by Instagram. I mean, you know, sometimes it disappears. It means our culture. We We are dumber than ever. But there are some people who don't give in to that and buster all he's one of them. So when he says this I'm not saying he's going to be. He's gonna take this Vegas. I'm not gonna take it to Vegas for Buster says this. I'm trusting that he is being informed of people he trusts And wow, that just I mean, more than surprising is scary as hell. What do you think the threshold is then? As like a society for us to have baseball, You know how many players need to get settled? Doesn't.
Did 1998 have to be the last dance for Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls?
"At last we heard Michael Jordan say that from the outset of the nineteen ninety seven ninety eight season it was their last chance Phil Jackson he said could have gone any joint in the regular season and still would not have been back throughout the last dance we were reminded of Jordan's competitiveness and as we watch the end of a ten hour documentary about a team a franchise that just won six titles in an eight year span Michael Jordan was upset he did have a chance to go for a seventh the bulls were broken up the rebuilding began after that nineteen ninety eight championship could they have had one more in the could they have kept the team together if they tried ESPN's Michael Wilbon Jackie MacMullan I would bet on Scotty Michael and Phil Jackson anytime anywhere let's start with that but here's the problem Phil and Jerry Krause Scott their relationship was untenable by that point so there was no way Phil was going to come back if you don't have still come back then who's going to control Dennis robin even
'The Last Dance:' Debate over Michael Jordan's trash talking on 1997-98 Chicago Bulls
"More discussion this morning. Of course about the last dance the legacy of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams of the nineteen nineties and whether or not the way Jordan governed that group demanded of them held them accountable. Some might say bullied them was fair. Michael Wilbon who covered Jordan Bulls and knows Jordan about as well as anyone in the media. This side of a moderate shod. Join Max Steven A. And discussed the question was Michael Jordan. Too tough on his teammates. What were your thoughts when you heard. What Charles Barkley had to say about Michael Jordan In regards to his treatment of his teammates. Well look everybody's gotTa take on. Michael and how? Ruffy was teammates. Select Selective Prosecution. Was the words he used select. Prosecution said look everybody had a different leadership style. Reason part of the reason for this documentary reasoning exists is because Michael decided okay. I'm going to be able to sort of control the conversation in terms of why I did what I did and how I did it. I it comes out and says hey you know you've had this conversation with them. He wasn't trying to adopt anybody else's leadership style. He was going to do this his way. And when it worked then you had to. You heard him during. I thought the most effective part of the last dance department made me reach for a notebook and put my reporter hat back on his when Michael Said you know. Winning has a price. And if you don't want to buy into the mentality. I am using here. Get out it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be hell for you. I think was the phrase. And so you see all those teams that you see will produc- Winnington and those guys say at the time that we did it. Seem like he crossed the line. Yes as went on. Did we think he was a great teammate? Yes this is not look you can have whatever take you. WanNa have on it and I understand Charleston's take because it was different but nobody else in their time as much I mean magic and Kareem on the way in but it worked and so I even sit. There does interesting mom watching in real time I have not. I did not watch all the episodes of advanced like most people in our business. I wanted to watch in real time with my son. Who's a twelve year old basketball player and his eyes so big? When Michael says certain things to his teammates we are watching the unedited version The watch the PG rated version of the DEUCE and he's like. Wow Dad he has to do that with his teammates. And I'm like I don't know if he had to but it worked they won and that's the bottom line right. There is the quote that tells you at all they won in Jordan's way worked. Max made a great point during the you know there was no Celtics Lakers rivalry. There wasn't because Jordan he was Roy Jones. He was so good. There were no equals. No rivals

NFL explains why there was no pass interference called on play that eliminated Saints
"We're going to. We're going to make football show because that's what people like over the weekend. Everybody who listens to this show presumably watched all of the football games or most of all of the football guess. He missed the playoffs playoff in Hawaii. The yes I missed that one Justin Thomas I saw this morning. I thought it was really nice but I missed it last last night because it came on pretty late We're going to do you because the ratings of the NFL up all across the board because the interest in the NFL is up all across the board and because each of those those games was quite interesting in its own way including terrible terrible. Coaching decisions by both coaches in the Houston Buffalo Game. We're going to talk about out this for an extended period of time in the first segment. Michael Wilbon will join us in second segment. We're GONNA limit news and go right to old guy where we're going to talk about the Golden Globes and the matchups for next week. That's what we're going to the show probably the same length. But I WANNA do it if you don't mind I WANNA do it that way also. WanNa thank Clarendon Tola for Baking Cooke's for Claire Gary Braun Chris Cillizza Michael Kornheiser Nigel. Who has nothing to do except for on the boards because we're not sleep keeps pressing one button? So He's been news cancelled forever now just today. If you don't mind especially the best thing is not gonNa work out just I you know I'm old and I thought why not like Michael said to me last night we were talking about the possibility of of Michael. Are you shaking your head. You don't want me to. Would you go ahead down the fourth wall. People talking about Mike Lees. I won't share this on air dead. Yeah go ahead Michael Says Cillizza how how do we get rid of him. Nicely to the change in the show today. I let's start. Let's start with yesterday's which is going to go backwards. I'm just can start with the Minnesota game because of all the games the end result of that game is the most surprises so like I said on the PTI show on Friday. I'll take Tennessee. Plus Five Live and a half all day and all night doesn't mean I think they're gonNA win. I'm GONNA take those points New Orleans. Losing at home in overtime to Minnesota is stunning drew. BREES did not have a great game he had a very bad fumble in drive. That could have changed in the fourth quarter changed. Everything around. He got picked never gets picked. I mean he did not have a great game. There are three quarterbacks forty years old and up over the weekend and they all lost. We'll get to that but even with brees not having a great game. They tied the game. They got into overtime there at home and they yielded the first drive. That's it see around. see you around Kirk cousins who. I am extraordinarily critical of on a regular basis was very good and kirk cousins to Adam Adam field and had to make up for fumble early. You know but I don't feel did that pass. That wins the game. Now there's a third downplay because what you don't want to do is have to kick a field goal because because you don't want to give New Orleans the ball on the one. Yeah you don't WanNa do that. On the third downplay they go in the left. Hand top corner of the end zone to Kyle Rudolph is about twelve aid aide just like that and by the way quickly give cousins credit. That was a terrible snap. The snap his way to his right he basically knocks it with his right hand. Quickly gathers it because you it's all timing and throws a faith throws the fate and Rudolf reaches up. He's much taller than defender and he gets it in the process of doing that he pushes off. There's no question he pushes off. Does it rise to the level of offensive pass interference for me in a playoff game and I have to give context here. New Orleans has tragically lost in Hoon's replay off games in a row cheated in one cheated by by their own stupidity in another with defensive back and I mean I honestly either call offense a pass. Interference would have so I did not I mean I I watched the play. Did Not in real time necessarily see the wrangle back is in front of your Reina Vision Right. So they call it a touchdown a apparently appropriately to me and then you see the replay and and I did think to myself. Like oh my goodness could they. Could they possibly possibly overturn this. I mean it. And we've all seen their explanation and said there was handed both sides. It didn't rise to level pass interference. I mean I'm sorry by no objective measure to me was that not pass interference and in fact is in fact a couple hours later they called the same thing on hollister tight end from. I'm from Seattle and on much less meaningful circumstance but I mean I just felt like the league. We're getting out of the way this one. I mean there's no way every time it's the UNCANNY situational right. We know this. It's like it's like a Games are raft. Basketball game is reverend different right. The game is rough differently in the last thirty seconds than it it is and that's situationally you cannot. I don't think when I watched it and I watched the replay. He pushed off a little bit. Did it it was. It did not to me anyway. I think I disagree with you. Guys did not to me look agree. Gis I think Rudolph was bigger. The defensive back had his back this business. Being that push back. Chris Locate fully extends. I think it was his left arm. Yeah if he is allowed to do that he catches that ball. A hundred injured time. He cannot be defended. Unless you play. Just there's so many calls they show throughout the game when they every time on a pass Where not every time? Seventy percent of the time on a pattern when they show the slow motion the other guy. The the DB is has his arm wrapped around around the guy's waist or is holding. His arm gets there. I just think it's very subjective. That's fine but I agree with that but I would also agree that the saints should not be shafted million better cost the saints again. Plenty of opportunities it. Certainly when you were watching the game I ah in the flow of it and when tased him hill like in three straight plays a three-stroke they score a touchdown. Now it's twenty seventeen right gary to have that right was twenty. I needed to twenty twenty twenty seven hundred twenty and then they get back they get it back and take some hill like three times. Basically the the one where he runs to the left where it looks like. He's tackled and he spins runs for thirty arts. Well they're definitely going to win then. And then brees fumbled. I mean it was very i. I lost fumbling. The ball get hit. No sort of this is arm gets hit a little bit. I'm sorry I'm busy trying to reconstruct your show on the fly without telling you so allowed back in so so tension is good for the show is for Knuckleballer To to to tie it up. What was the forty nine yard or from lots? They're kicking it through. Yeah man that went about now three feet off the ground and easier kick at the end of the first half a ball Games kick forty something already three but that's an easier kick so that game. Let me say one other thing about that game as someone who was a kirk cousins fan when he was here. I'm not going to criticize Kirk. Cousins played fine. He was he was great in that last. Drive the drive. If they lose the haters are going to look at that stat line that would have been seventeen of twenty nine hundred and ninety yards picked and he didn't do anything bad. Oh he had a good game and the pass was just

"Stephen a Doc Rivers. Michael wilbon and Steven A. And Magic Johnson clearly have a good relationship. Now, we all know that Stephen is a good journalist, you emotional choked up. I'm emotional the same way that Stephen is emotional when defending his friend Magic Johnson. And when he defends him he does not sound objective. He sounds emotional, so that story comes out from Baxter homes on ESPN dot com. He's ever met Johnston, and it torches all of the Lakers. And magic is given the platform by Steven A again to go after the Lakers are caused more of a mass blame. More people cut. Dotson. And Stephen a Smith varies zealously defended Magic Johnson from that story. Cut governmental Johnson now Henry Abbott at true hoop is saying the following Henry Abbott. Also a very good journalist new age journalist, and this is what he writes on Twitter, telling the truth is difficult. Painstaking often thankless work. Not everyone has the stomach for it. I think ESPN faces tough choices about, whether it wants to nurture evidence based, reporting, or tear it down and so evidence based reporting is what Baxter homes reported for ESPN dot com. Where it was on the ground talking to dozens of sources pointing out that the Lakers have had an alarming amount of executives leave talking to people in a way that exhaustively reported. And then Stephen a Henry avid saying a went on the air and toward. Down that evidence based reported. Magic Johnson tyrannical as the boss. That's basically what pitching trying to pay. Magic Johnson what that's small fee on television all over permeating the Airways. Oh my God. Stop the process. Magic Johnson might have been a bit hard core..

"And I said, why they said because I've been named whatever the title is, you know czar programming. And my first duty is going to be put you guys on television. I said your second duties be fired, because this is not sound phallic sound thinking to me. And that's how I heard that Kornheiser almost didn't do it. When either one of both was almost didn't do it. I remember one day I was much closer to not doing it than Tony. Okay. All these all these stories tend to revolve around Tony because it's sexier and needs to more eccentric. But I, I was a place Tony being ten years older, he'd written the column, you done all that. He did it for a long time. He was he didn't want to didn't want to travel and go to games. And do the thing that columnists need to do back then, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and or I'm sorry, late twentieth early twenty first. So he he didn't wanna do that stuff. And I did. And so I don't wanna be in a studio every day, not going to games. And here I am in Toronto as we as we speak still do that, that was an assistance on my Bobby, but then we walked into a studio or newsroom, and there were people, there would move from Bristol and moved from places like why are you people here? And they said, well, we did a television show. We tend to start on, like Tober tenth, and we're like seriously. We haven't signed. Anything and he's one of had, and we were not pressed to do it. I don't want to sound ungrateful because again, I'm grateful, but we, you know, I had the dream job of my life back, then being accomplished for the Washington Post. And so that Tony, and so we were not, you know, moved that we had to do this immediately. And there were people that our lives who said, thankfully, shut up, and listen, this is going to be different Charles Joe's bar things, one of them, and they were sitting with Charles and he said, are you crazy? You know, you gotta do this. You guys get this is gonna be good. It's gonna matter. And there were people like that in both of our lives. And so we, we said, okay, maybe it's time to listen and shut up. Michael wilbon, pardon the interruption and in Toronto game four coming up tonight with the bucks and those rafters of the warriors ability to come back here and do it in four games. You don't have boogie. You don't have ego dolla, and you don't have Kevin Durant. That's pretty impressive to do it. And beat a good Portland team and do it, I think in three of the four games Mike. They were down by at least fifteen points. What do you make of this run by the warriors in, you know, I, I think it's an all time great run. I think it measures up to anything by saying, and I'm too young to see the end of the Russell, Celtics, very in remember the last championship, but not much more than that. But obviously we know the history of it and. Then, and obviously we're talking more teams more resources, you know, not every team as a pigeon waiting to be taken advantage of I read our back. But I mean the point we are now in a culture sport for the warriors to do this with all of their assets available is just stunning and to do it without Kevin Durant. And you can say okay, without believe cousins, too, but it's about Durant, man. And I understand they haven't beaten a great team yet in this run. But, you know, the Celtics didn't always be great teams in Russell's run every time they usually the be one at the end of often will Chamberlain on it. Whether it was a conference final final so men. I mean the reminded how great Steph curry is. I don't know why we needed to be reminded. We did most people did. And I was at the Houston series..

Dominic give most the credits Ronald's defense knickknacks talked before the game having to come up with something different. They did not radically. But there were tough double teams you heard Yana speak to that. Yes. Litter is going to get the lion's share. The credit. And he's because he's been a great defender for a long time. But it wasn't just collide later. There was a second person there, every time Yanna spun, and he loves us spin back to the middle. There was another guy there resulting in eight turnovers. Five baskets for Jaanus tonight. And that's a winning formula for Toronto. Even if it takes two overtimes in, you know, the bucks had to really be led by George hill, Malcolm Brogdon and they kept him in the game because Janas even found out the first about a minute or so into the second overtime. But so now what in this chess match? What's the move? You know that Nick nurse in Toronto, we're going to go with something very, very similar. Why wouldn't they can't garyanddino onto the Kubo one on one? Even if that one guy is one of the best, I don't know two or three defenders in the league, the last five years, you still going to have to have those double teams. So now it's up to Milwaukee and coach, bud to figure out what spots to get onto the coupon in. So he's not facing those double teams all the time. And that's what we. Got the next forty eight hours. Oh, yeah. Kawai littered played fifty two minutes career-high. He had Kyle Lowry coming to him before the trainer could get there to put heating pads on his. I guess, ailing quads as he sat on the bench after dunk that put Toronto and control of the game. So the players I asked I asked how after the game, and I said you were pretty quick those heating pansies. I'm going to leave anybody to take care of my guy and he didn't. They understand everybody on this team. Everybody in this city understands the value of lynyrd in the playoffs. So turning into this all time epoch player for Toronto. The last time he played there was that thrilling. Unbelievable shot in that game seven which was just spectacular. And then when you think about tonight, Michael, it looked like he was banged up from the first basket really till the last everybody was out of gas at the end in double overtime and his defense down the stretch was great. But, but that's what you expect that of. A. You do. And there was time Steve, you mentioned from the beginning. I didn't realize he was necessarily limping five minutes into the game, but his teammates mentioned it. And there were spots. He gets to on the floor will, you are accustomed to seeing we all are collide plant and rise. I don't know that he was able to do that. I talk about it publicly when he gets out of the hot over or wherever it is. But, but that's the case. There were also couple shots where he might have into this thing in regulation, and after went overtime and you wonder if he could get the lift, and he's a customer getting yet, he was still able to defend and outlast Jaanus onto the coupe. Oh, his opposite. Number the to those two guys have been so great in these playoffs. You know, we, we look out west you look at all the roller look at Golden State alone with Steph curry, and what he's doing and, but you, you, you have to come back here and look at onto the coupe. Oh, and Kawai Leonard going after each other less than forty eight hours. One more time on this floor to see whether it's going to be even whether Milwaukee is gonna take a three.

Why would Kevin Durant leave the Warriors?
"Would Kevin Durant ever leave where he currently is because of his legacy? He's got to do it himself. I'm telling you he's already part of this team. It has been years now three of them since he supposedly joined the team he could not beat. And he is the MVP of their last two NBA final appearances. And might be again. We don't know. I mean, not supposedly he did they were down. They were up three one, and they blew it. And then he went and joined why would he leave it? Curry fits him better than but he knows how it fits. They all fit Kerr the management ownership that jewel of a stadium. We just heard about sounds. We're on gushing out of looking at it. Why would he leave it?
"wilbon" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Day night called the hot zone about when. The Ebola virus jump the ocean and came over to our shores, it's a fascinating series. And we'll talk about that and game thrones with Liam Cunningham in a minute. But tonight, it's a huge huge doubleheader of playoff basketball, Milwaukee Bucks. Trying to close out the Celtics and maybe carry Irving's career with them. And then the pivotal game five as you know, the game fives are either pivotal or decisive? So it's decisive in Milwaukee tonight, potentially and definitely pivotal between the wall or rockets and warriors both games on TNT. And in Oakland right now. One of my favorites on the show as well. As on TV off the air as well from pardon, the interruptions, Mike wilbon, how are you Michael? I'm good. How are you doing hanging in there? Absolutely hanging in there. I guess what? I sent this to you right off the bat in Celtics bucks. Rockets warriors. What do you think is on the line tonight in both of those series? Michael wilbon. Well, you have one of them. I mean for Boston everything I mean, that's the that's the different next year. If I I'm presuming the ducks were win, maybe I shouldn't presume that guy. So they thought they sell to spend time series of to having been the forty years worth of playoff games in Boston. And knowing how that building worse than the fan base. The crowd the atmosphere was against teams, none of that evidence against Milwaukee. And I as you mentioned I'm here in northern California for the game tonight. And I you know, everybody's still presumes that the warriors are gonna win the words of their team. The warriors are not a great team right now. They're not they don't do anything. Great, you know, through sheer talent and even playing a sea level game. And I think there seem minus right now a lot of areas. Relative to what we see them at their best. They're not great team. They don't do. What did they do? Great. They don't shoot the three grade. They don't defend all the rim. And maybe I don't know that this boogie cousins. Returning to a line of eight point help that now if they don't have that element. I'm going to say they actually at times mischievous McGee, and they don't have they don't have much bench bench contribution. They're not great bear. So, you know, the rockets winning tonight. Yes, I could I don't know that I'm predicting that. But I'm not particularly anything with that series..
