We're from originally like I'm Ibo right most Jamaicans cable so I add the Caribbean and then I said and just refund. That's also add the rest of Southern Africa and then I construct the students. Tony Ridiculous Caribbean so busy. I say out can Africa and the Caribbean put together an all time team. It's better than an african-american team a euro team at a white American team. It's the third one. Maybe not. The answer is yes. We don't have time to do this but I will convince you. I can't convince you to Africa and the Caribbean in basketball. All Time team and also your co you qualify by or Nigeria. Will I started? I start with all of ethnic did not all? I'm only adding. I added Southern Africa.

Is Zion Living Up to the Hype for the Pelicans?
"Were in Dallas for the pelicans overtime loss to the Mavericks. Second night of a back to back for New Orleans obviously but we didn't see the Zion. We've sort of been spoiled by over the last month. So what did you get from Zion? On Wednesday night. I saw someone who had to go through a little bit of adversity. There's two different things working against him in that Dallas Game One. It was the first time he played on a back to back. You didn't see his legs under him. Early actually play but gets the block on Williamson Williamson. Took his time getting up court. You may be subbing out of the ball game here. He is drew and Lonzo Ball. We're GONNA come on up to him. Hey man you you're right you you tired. Are you going to play? You GotTa pick one. The other thing. Going against him was Dallas they started Maxi Kluber alongside of kristaps porzingis specifically for Zion Williamson two. That might have been forcing a psychotic burst that is just perfectly played deep that still by Dallas Cleveland's doing A. They went to the formula. That's been working. Which is the. We're GONNA get the tallest guy we have can defend him to do it. And then have another seven footer. Awesome plus footer at the Rim Ryan got blocked inside again. It's not possible in less. Cleber is being this physical and allowing time for kristaps ticket over there. Lieber six ten obviously porzingas seven three. Those have been the only really match ups that have given him problems when they played the box. Janas guarded him and then you have the Lopez twins behind him. Protecting the RIM defers Lakers game. Anthony Davis guarded him. And you had jovial and Dwight rim so that combination kind of went against his favor so walk me through a little bit of the process on the back to back portion of it because this is obviously part of the Adjustment For Zion. So where do you find the line? If you're the PELICANS in trying to get him experienced doing things like back to backs that he'll be asked to throughout his career and then also sort of adjusting him since he is still getting fresh on the court after an injury yeah so initially David Griffin the PELICANS executive vice president of basketball operations who should have a shorter title. It's a mouthful say every time I don't know I mean if you're going to have a title let's go big with it like if I'm going to have a business card the whole front of it's going to be my title and the backs. Just going to say fits. There's not not my first name. Just I'm pretty sure that's what his business card says. I haven't seen one but I'm pretty sure that's it has to read like that initially As I was coming back from the injury. Grif said he wasn't there. Were probably going to take it easy on back to backs. Now the good thing that kind of worked into their favor there was January. Twenty second was when he made his debut since then the Tuesday Wednesday back to back that they just had was the first time they had a back to back so they got to let him get games under his belt. He mentioned to his own Tuesday. You know I have to do the recovery if I want to perform the way that I'm capable of performing as you try to push for or is this your mutual agreement Little bit of both but I need a push for myself because I gotTa do the recovery of I want to be able to perform. We do every night with that. Being said coming off the knee injury there were reports that he was learning how to walk differently. How to run differently? I mean when they're watching him and they're monitoring and what are they looking for his indicators of his health very funny to me because I think George Sodano said that I think on ESPN broadcast and it just kind of blew up. He's learning how to walk and anybody who's been through physical therapy at any point that I for any sort of knee. Injuries foot injury. Whatever it is can tell you. They will relearn how to walk in physical therapy. The learning how to walk and run differently was more about little things in his gate that they wanted to fix. The biggest thing that they really wanted to correct at that time was how he landed when you go back and watch how he landed at. Duke with these huge one handed slam traffic. He's landing on one foot one of the big things you see. Now when he goes up for a dunk whether it's an alley whether he's just throwing it down to hands. He tries to land on two feet as much as possible. Zeile yeah that the to hand flush and a great entry fee for Lonzo Ball over Kunst buck to finish that would KUPA gotta be thinking. What in the world so. It's little things that maybe you don't know at nineteen years old that the Pelicans are trying to instill in him so they can take a little bit of stress off of his knees. The biggest thing you just said is nineteen if you listen to Zion. He'll make sure he tells you. He's nineteen in just about every other interview. I feel like I mean but doesn't right like we are so busy trying to make him either the savior of a lead. That doesn't need to be saved or the reason that we're over. Hyping somebody to the point that people ridicule how much we talk about it but you look at it at some point. Say this is a nineteen year old kid. We're talking about that is absolutely crushing in a limited sample size. So let's turn the tone positive here for a second you're looking at a nineteen year old kid. What he's doing is unprecedented right. It's absolutely unprecedented. Feel like every other night we were finding ways to start a sentence with Zion Williamson. Doing something and we ended it with Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neill or Tim Duncan or wilt. Chamberlain the goes on and on and on. And you're like that doesn't make sense.

Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era
"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

He actually signed an offer sheet with Portland four years ago, but never played for them because the thunder matched it and then bond up trading him to New York as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal back in two thousand seventeen. Okay. Mr history. That's it for that. He's averaged fourteen points and ten and a half rebounds for the Knicks this year that rebound total is tenth in the league. So you'd see why the Knicks would want to get rid of him because you know, otherwise, they wouldn't be able to run off a long losing streak. Like they have more about them in a second nuggets nip the kings one twenty to one eighteen Nikola Yokich tipped in the winter in the final second of that game.

But he said he admitted they can't win like this when a championship. Yeah. He said when he's saying so you got a Jesus saying we can't do this to win a championship. But I'm doing what I have to do right now because injuries of taking place which is not wrong about that like Paul and Gordon have been out for some time. Those guys are scores and their ball handler. So but if they're gone in the playoffs. What are they gonna do? It sounds like they're going to be dead in the water. Like, I said I mean, yeah, they're going to be dead in the water. Even if they pass the ball around though, right? Like, you know, what I mean like, they're they're damned if they do damned if they don't regardless. So you might as well just go down with your with the best score in the NBA shooting. I I don't know. I mean, I see what you're saying. But if those guys aren't healthy in the playoffs, they're not gonna win. Right. It just feels like the might need to change up. The game just to see just to do a little trial and error run almost as see what they can do for the playoffs. If they're if they're already destined to make them.

But yeah, you know, that there was no three pointers and all the shots. He may were twos. Including free throws. We're still one. He would only be averaging twenty eight points. A game harden which should be more than everybody else. Still rent. Yeah. But still he has he's averaging thirty six now, that's almost like ten points less that just how insane how much he is from threes is what I'm saying makes sense. Yeah. But it's still insane. How he's just like he he's only isn't only forty point streak in theory because he's had like toback games. Like, it's insane. How many games he's had that your ethics just passes over forty points? Yeah. But the thing is like he's had just been like forty point games as he has like, oh, thirty point games. You know, it's not just like, oh, they're past thirty. It's past thirty. It's going the forties like some games. It's insane. Yep. Yep. They win last night. One eighteen one ten over the sons, so.

"Tears LeBron on Wilt Chamberlain. One of the most dominant forces we ever had in our game a long shot on the greatest Lakers. Never played a game on a point score. Great scores. Rebound ever. Play this game. Multi sport dimension type athlete or semi people. Never seen him like that. Common in all walks of life mental fastball. But anytime I name is mentioned somebody greats play his game. Always thinking about tomorrow hometown of rock come from. How far I'll come. Necessary. Look, he's put he's put together one heck of a career and this in this year to be able to do as much as he's doing how impressive was this latest accomplishment for LeBron. Well, every name he passes on this list because there's only four left to pass you mentioned he'll get Jordan later this year who get Koby probably the very beginning of next year. And then he'll have to wait a little bit before he gets Karl Malone and cream. This will be end up being the most impressive individual line on the resume that you guys know I believe will include greatest player ever, the NBA's all time leading scorer scoring was not his best trick. Because I don't think anyone thinks LeBron's best trade is scoring and right now he's now he's done it more than wilt. He's done more than everyone in league history except for four guys. Lebron is currently eleventh all time in assists. Okay. He's gonna finish most likely third all time behind only Stockton, Jason Kidd, wilt is seventy four th in SIS MJ's forty fourth co. Kobe's thirtieth abouts pass earth. Someone's about pass him. I forgot who Carl Malone's fifty fifth and cream is forty second. And so it's the scoring and the passing that individually make his numbers so untouchable compared anyone else. We've never seen this type of combo and he's now going to just keep ticking up the list both of those lists. I'm we'll take over these next three and a half years. It's a tremendous accomplishment. When you look at what he would call the opportunity heating, call it pressure. Look back of the Nike commercial and today, what do you think in two thousand and three about all the pressure on you? And he's just smiles like everything that I've heard about LeBron has been owed to basically, come true. And it's from me was fourteen when someone told me about him and start watching this kid from Akron, Ohio. And I love the fact too that even after the game he talked about that Lakers jersey. He's going to send that back to his school where he has the Canada promised. In in in Los Angeles. So he's done so many things that would just shock people. But the do it in the Lakers uniform last year when he's getting be of pending free agent. If everyone wanted any insight of where he might go look at the scoring list, though, six names on that list. All right, five of the six players. They all finished her career with the Lakers. So if the basketball guys we're going to have their way, LeBron James couldn't go anywhere could go to Nick's good go anywhere else. He had to come see the Lakers because that's the way the basketball. It's easy Wilt Chamberlain, call alone joined the others at late no career lasting play for where the was the purple lingo. And it's nice to see LeBron last night. It is nuts that now of the top six scores of all time them play everyone, but Jordan will not just play. But assuming LeBron's have another move finish their careers as Lakers. The there are certain elements. So like last night forty four ten and nine with three blocks in. Regulation game. We know that that's a really good game. Like, dusty pointed this out, I hadn't seen this. He's the first guy in league history to have that stat line with that many made threes in a regulation game. And it's just like, oh, that's a really good. Lebron game on a Wednesday night in the regular season in a year. Where people already starting question. He was the best of it passed in like are. We starting avid discussion what it was the best player in the world is no we're not and he's going to need to become the all time leading score listening twenty two eighteen behind Kareem to eighteen behind Kobe, pardon me. He's sixty nine hundred behind cream. It's going to take them about two hundred eighty games. It's about the same on a game to take him to become pass..

So across the board we've seen whether it's a rules emphasis the way it's been in the NBA, and the NFL is being hamstrung and you've heard complaints from high profile players whether it's a major league baseball. And it's this analytic shift much of the same way basketball saw with the elimination really of long to pointers mid range jumpers these high percentage short corner threes and a more fast paced style of offense. This is what it is. And you heard coming back from the break them talking. Stan Van Gundy on with Dan lebatardshow guys talking about tanking in the NFL. Now, I think what's going to come with that is this idea. That if offense is going to be the flavor of the league right now and in colleges we've got these dynamic offensive players. You're only a couple of those away from being able to reinvent yourself in a way that might allow for success to come sooner. And maybe that becomes more appealing time for straight talk.

He's fourth with thirty two thousand two hundred ninety two points. If LeBron maintains his scoring average at his current clip and doesn't miss any games. He should pass Jordan in late January. Then there's the top three scores in NBA history. Who like LeBron have all played for the Lakers at some point in their career Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant one-two-three Lakers win one twenty-six one seventeen. They moved just about five hundred ESPN Lakers reported Dave mcmenamin says that should shock. Nobody. Pat, myself on the back of the prognosticator exactly the type of team I expected that they're going to have four of their top eight players being first or second or third year players and having inconsistency and the down that comes with that growth process. And I think the one thing I haven't I hadn't totally accounted for is it LeBron headed atypical summer. He didn't play much basketball. He usually does he uproots his family and moved them halfway across the country and he came into camp and didn't play in the preseason. He has slowly kinda wrap wrapped up his body ramped up is minute. And you haven't had too many games where he's just carry the team as the by far and away best player on the court. There's been moments but haven't necessarily been games like that. So. When LeBron grounds into form, which I expect to happen. I think you'll start to see the real potential for this Lakers group as currently constructed. It doesn't feel that long ago that we were worrying about Luke Walton job and talking about what a slow start. They were off to we were just talking about. How surprisingly we didn't hear much from any of the Lakers players at least not nationally when questions were abound about Luke Walton stab did any of them get asked about it. Did you hear or did you get a sense from any of them about their position on how safe is job is and how much they support him certainly questions to y'all the new guys about how relations was Duke Walton and pretty much to a man. Well, like any relationship it takes time to develop. The tough part about that. It was a team like the players in the Lakers locker room had a more rational approach to what was happening on the court. Then the front office in seven games into this thing.

That gave back during the, course, of his, lifetime but also, like you, said at the foresight to think about how do I maintain and grow and perpetuate this and it. Was because of his estate that this exists it's because of this, estate that we're able to provide such great things like this scholarship program since I'm somewhat of a historian in terms of Sport in particular but other things as well Many athletes talk it but. They don't walk, it wilt didn't talk it he walked it meaning that he kept it quiet in terms of the multitude of people that. He touched in, terms of the great success he had example Barbara Lewis Chamberlain sent me something back and I just reached back and picked it up is jet magazine which, was a black magazine back in the day nineteen sixty eight January, eighteenth world's top paid athlete Wilt Chamberlain, two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a minute thing today because these guys are making forty million dollars in whatever it may be but Wilt Chamberlain in nineteen, sixty eight was the highest paid athlete in sport That's right and you think. About this and you can text all all that, I I said the one thing that stands out is is humility he, he was, so incredibly humble giving back with something you did it was. Second nature to you go all the way back to his school days his value of, trying to help others trying to make this this world this place a better something better for everybody to succeed in at its, that's. Really at the crux and root of of his character and you. Just what a what an opportunity for us to perpetuate that legacy and. Help pay it forward for some of the greats here in greater Philadelphia Amy he wanted to tie this in with a series that I started this is the third. Week and Wiltz birthday is August the twenty first so next week I'm going Wrap it up but I. Wanted, to give, people a totality of who he was, not just. This, giant athlete bigger than life but certainly the person that we're. Talking about who never forgot where. He came from basically never forgot the people that, touched him along the way and never forgot those who were instrumental in, helping him, achieve his goals not just in sport but his goals in. Life and then being able to have the foundation the Wilt Chamberlain memorial foundation that will, live on and pepper to to keep his name in front of people not for the greatness of basketball not for the greatest, of. Being one of the greatest athletes that we've ever had on earth. But one of the great human beings I say all that simply because. We grew up together my Birthday, is on July the twenty second his birthday is August the twenty first and we have been doing this since he passed away years ago so, that my audience and others would get a real feel of who this man is other than. All of the records and all of, the greatness, and all the other things they speak about him You bet I mean we have had the. Opportunity since around, two thousand. Four to award almost seventy scholarships to date and. We look at each of these great students, he's incredible individuals, as those who were Petrie his legacy those will carry the. Torch forward and has much of the, accolades it will have on the court for sure.
