Were here judging me in slow motion. Judging by what a coincidence this documentary filmmaking right this is real life. Just by the cowboys. This man was mad enough to stand up. Aaron donald and russell him to the ground i think might be connor williams because he better be in the weight room. Because if you're not man enough to stand up to number ninety nine and throw him down you better be a little brolich.

"Lyons infrared here on the richeisenshow each hit me up on social media at i am ben. Lyons at the show. Of course at rich eisen show has the boot good brooch man as far as computer goes. It's not bad shahrukh beer going on over there. It's tom brady's birthday so the guy celebrating with john set today. Pretty delicious blueberry lavender and camomile fantastic. Susie it's her birthday legends only today. Happy birthday she was kind enough to bring. You guys mimosas last week. So continue the tradition. Yeah birthday who's day tuesday right here on the show. Tom brady shots to simone biles. Yeah no metal. Big time data on the On the balance beam. If you're tried bounce absolutely not. I mean i've tried to walk a straight line with my car. Got stopped for certain reasons but no not off the ground on the piece of wood. Or and i think it's as wide as a remote control. I can very narrow. They say it's like a vhs tapes inches wide beach vhs tape on its side or the edge to four four. Okay just to walk across it. I think would be a tremendous challenge for the four of us in this room to flip in the air and land on it and not fall on. Your head is no chips. You'd have no chance. I wouldn't even attempt it and she's able to go out there facing everything she's going through right now. Find the strength. The courage inner drive to go out there and do that and to meddle in the olympics seventh metal credible phenomenal so shouts out to simone biles today. No doubt congrats very excited. To have serena williams on the show another legend. You gotta show full allegience today. Nothing but legend on welcome to the show. She knows all things. Football things texas football and i want to start with. Tj's dallas cowboys. He's already pre gaming for a super bowl party. Right here in los angeles is a little premature. You think well you know i'm disappointed. I'm not in the studio with you. Guys can sell like you're way too much with drinks and everything went on so so there Yeah you don't. I think the cowboys have a chance. Because i think their defense is going to be better. I think that's the key for offensively. We know what they have right now. I think there's a little bit concerned. Is what the cowboys upset about. Oh there's no concern with that shoulder it's gonna be fine. I just. I think there's a little bit of concern there with the strain and it's early i get it you know but i i would like to see him. Play the preseason to take that hit that would be the next step for him to get through the curdle of all right taken off and run and and gotten hit ankle's fine and all those things he says he never thinks about it anymore. And i get that and go to mile when he went out and danced and that was a good sign when he was able to do that and i do think he's one hundred percent and all that but there is that hurdle queer right that middle of really taking that first yet so i would like to see him. Play some the preseason. I don't know what the shoulder injury we'll see again it's early. He wasn't gonna play in fame game anyway but we'll see what happens but i would like to see him. Play the preseason. So i do think there's a little bit concerned there but i do think they're better. I certainly got a chance to win the nfc east last year. I think they've got the best back in the division so we have a chance to do that. And what's playoffs. You know what's going to happen. And they haven't been an really though the history the back change chip game since nineteen ninety which is something won the super bowl so it's been a really long time but this does look like a pretty good team on paper. We know what that equals to not very much wants to seize it stars. But i like the looks of of things that they've done this off. Season during trinkets serena williams joins the show pro football talk. You can follow her on twitter at nfl. Charene ben lines in for each on the rich eisen show. And i bring up your twitter shrink. Because i think you've had the tweet of this young football season you called out young players yesterday or two days ago. Now if you're a young player setting to make the team you do not leave the field until everyone else has. You certainly don't leave the field before the quarterback with video of dak prescott runnings wind sprints calling out the next generation during. I like it. Well that to me said more about their young players and it said about that prescott right. He's out there. Running extra wind sprints after practice. Piece out there. You're better for you out there. If you're trying to make the team. I mean i don't care i don't care how tired you are. I don't care that your other position groups gone. I don't care if the starting quarterback is out there. Running wind sprints after practice. You better be out there. You'd better be seen by those coaches and one thing. I really liked kalamata. Of course. I'm an aggie. So i seemed never to tell him on his played in his career but with the vikings he was the first guy on the practice field every single day before he got of course but those guys on the products film. I loved seeing that. And what's not surprised to see that. But that's what you wanna see from young players. You need to be out there well before practice and you just stay after practice until the last guy is gone. Certainly before the quarterback got. That's what seems to see them. You see your commitment to this thing that you're doing everything possible to make the team so absolutely I love it backwards. Still after running one sprint surprised me but it did surprised that other guys went out there..

Don't have a point guard. What are you guys talking about. So what's the most expensive version of that Luca oh wow yeah it just depends it depends on who it is right now. Like lamelo ball. Obviously anything of him is through the roof I remember channel that. You're gonna home when i worked at either certain actors that weren't necessarily the biggest star. But if you've got an interview with them in made sense for the channel audience you know we're not so interested in this Denzel washington interview but actually benson from pretty little. Yes we gotta do out demo right. So does that apply. It feels like it does with this sports car biz. Yeah definitely in the last handful of years. You don't wanna go too far back unless you're only only really talking about kobe. Lebron or michael jordan rookie or whatnot but in the last couple of years. It's the big names it's all about. The rookies is a bogus on rookie worth more. Because bonds got a little sauce. The nba not really sakonnet. That's just like a fun thing to have. Oh check out this beaut bond rookie auto that i see. That's why i could never do well. If we're looking at it purely from a financial standpoint you'd like you had this opportunity to invest in a camera rookie right. Well you took the meal steer dosage something like the rest exact anyway. All right gregg. Rosenthal coming up next ben lines in for rich on the rich eisen show. Don't watch kids with your parents super awkward. We tell you it's so we could probably get a we get a bo bon rookie auto for like two hundred bucks. If we want to go in on it takes on rookie auto and manual quickly auto going for about the same going for about the same two hundred dollars. Beaubrun doesn't have that cool of an autograph though so it's like you know. Sometimes things they don't t- man was plowing fields in serbia with products. And you're complaining about his penmanship. Huggy sheena the size of his hands could even hold a pen. You go to six flags and you sit on the big chair photo. Do you get one of those for a pen for this man. He's been here mike. I don't know if you can quickly find the photo of bobin with all of us. But they don't teach penmanship. They don't teach cursive anymore in school. So of these guys coming up their autographs or literally just squiggly lines one of the great nights at staples center which will be white. Has the worst autograph ever glam readily just in his mouth dot. It's like what are we doing. The one of the great one of the great nights at staples center fists compared to rich green party need to honor forever in. That building was a few years back. I got to dress up like a hot dog. At the cooper game and shoot hotdogs into the crowd sounds and it was serbian appreciation night because this is amazing because they had all the different appreciation nights on the calendar but the clippers made some moves that year to get bo-bottle and meal oc- so the serbian community in los angeles justifiably was like. Hey we want serbian night and the only night on the calendar that worked for the clippers was to do it on japanese night so it was celebrate traditions of honoring the tradition of japanese heritage and also showing some love to serbia. And and you're just a hot. I'm just it was a magical center bother bold on sat afterwards and spoke with serbian clippers. Fans those do exist in los angeles like half an hour afterwards amazing. It you can attest you of bone. Also he was one of the nicest dudes we've ever been absolutely. Yeah with that. Much joy appreciation enthusiasm. Just it's just amazing to see a human being realize that we are of the same species. And i'm a big. I'm six three right. That man i came up to his shoulder easily. A foot taller magical night at staples. They played janas. So there's lots of greek fans now serbian night. I'm there as a hot dog is incredible.

"Podcast ben lines in for rich on the rich eisen show you went from the best division football the nfc west to was no doubt the worst division last season. The nfc east When you look at the nfc with tj's dallas cowboys. You see them as the favorite in the division or your own with rich and the washington football team. I'm with this show. So i guess i got i went. He could have breakfast for dinner. We do what everyone no. I do agree with rich. Although i'm not a you know i worked for the nfl. I'm not allowed to You know pick these. But i can't make predictions i. I'm surprised that the eagles are such big underdogs in this division. If you kind of look at the odd to me any one of these four teams could have a chance because things could go sideways with washington. But i've watched such a boring washington team for twenty years now and i. I think the talent that fitzpatrick has around him. I think their offensive coordinator scott turner is is. Actually pretty underrated can can dial up some good place That would that defense the me. They are the favourite because they are the most complete teams. But if you told me we're going into week sixteen and all four of these teams are near five hundred and they all have a shot. And that's including the eagles pretty good-looking defensive line. A great looking offensive line like that. That wouldn't shock me either. If this is like a four eight race greg every day. Now we're at the time of the year there's a highlight that goes around from camp and it gets people fired up. I mean chris. Brockman was spilled his lavender kabukicho. Because he saw pitch catch a touchdown in practice. Greg you saw that. Kyle pits touchdown. I mean come on. It was pretty sweet. Yeah so advice for fans not to lose their minds on any highlights or any on the flipside. Any injury news that comes out camps right now. This is the time of year fans. Emotions can be very up and down especially this week so pads came on for i think twenty nine teams today so bill belichick check would would say that. This first week of camp isn't even football. Bruce arians soccer practice and that it's still sort of in the evaluation and teaching period and literally the competition that they've been waiting for Since may when they were on the field that oath starts today. And so i i never put too much into the evaluation of who's up. Who's down the injuries are different. The injuries i think are significant. And you can start to. You can start to look at some team sideways. Like like your of cowboys. Who the marcus. Lawrence's back surgeries and significant. He's been out seven months amari cooper. They insist ankle injury not significant. He had that surgery seven months ago. You rehab an injury after a major major surgery for seven months in lee athlete. And you're still not one hundred percent like to me. These are significant signs that we learn this month whereas on something to keep an eye on it and and you look at the colts that learning that that Their guard quitting nelson is going to be out for at least a month or two Those are the things that starts to to set you back before the and even starts rosenthal joins the show ben lines in for rich on the rich eisen show. You can catch greg of course. Nfl network and around the league. We got for greg their brockman. Did you see this thread. That ralph fach. Yano had about giants practice today. Greg what is going on over there and like joe. J- judge it's makes these guys run sprints like he's her brooks like. I've never seen anything like it. I am amazed by that. He made them run sprints after an all out on the field and not just a fight. 'cause you know those. Those happened almost all training camps. Some some coaches have it pretty locked down where you really are aren't allowed to do it But that happens but this one supposedly had like twenty people in it and daniel jones. Your quarterback is is at the bottom and then yeah you're punishing them by by running around the field like it's a fine line where whether you're gonna keep your players Engaged with that kind of attitude this joke judge and it looks like a team you know when when that does happen that he doesn't have a so go to the amount of control and that's what he's looking for. Yeah but greg even someone who's covering the nfl for a long time out. Imagine it's going to blow over the new york media now. i know we. We got nothing to do it fairly august. People are hungry like fans reporters. We haven't been at a training camp in this sort of way now for for two years. So we're loving it us. I like the fights when the teams practice with each other. Though that'd be like chargers saints they practice every year. He's show up on the first day. You have a guaranteed a couple of fights. If you go there for jason garrett there was someone had a photo of him and he had a t. Shirt in the giants fought. That said fight. It was like he was expecting it. It's mixed messages. is frustrated because from what i've heard and granted. It's it's the first week. No one's tackling or anything. That offense isn't working right now. The defense dominating every day that happens early training camp lot but This is an offense. I think under garrett that has a lot of pressure on the added a lot of pieces kenny. Golladay went out of practice with an injury. Today we'll see if that serious but daniel jones all those weapons and you have garrett which. I'm sure You know the cowboys fan. They're like i don't know if he's the guy to like. Come up with a lot of creative stuff when you have all these different pieces on the perimeter of the giant bill. Greg rosenthal joins the show. Nfl network around the league. Podcast greg what. What can we expect out of james. Is he really going to be the guy down there for new orleans and will they even beat the bucks. I mean come on i You know saw michael. Thomas is going to be out for a while and they have a great offensive line. They have they have murray. I mean chimera in the marine. I thought like you. So i'm paying gonna be tempted here to start paying tastes hill. You know he loves them paying them. run the ball lot and rely on their even. I think that's a possibility. But when you look at jameis winston. I try not to put too much and like he's in the best shape of his life stuff. He looks like a different person. I mean he had to have lost thirty or forty pounds from from his speak. I don't know if that's gonna make him a better player but he's certainly got the arm you've got the the coach now I mean he's got the production guys you know put up. Seven thousand yards are way more than that in his career Seven point eight yards. They gotta give him a chance. I think because the upside is so much higher than you would have with as hell. But i don't know if it'll be week one yesterday greg. It was just kind of understood in decided that nick foles is going to go replace carson wentz again. This time in indianapolis hasn't happened just yet. But do you see that happening. Is that the best path forward for the colts. now that carson on the shelf for what. I see it happening. I think they're gonna see how when's recovers there. No hurry whatsoever in that. If they did make a move for a veteran it might not be full. I really think they will be cognizant of wednesdays's feelings and inviting that whole trauma back into the like. I think they're more likely to look at a guy if if they really need to. Once in one hundred percent like jacoby brisa who they've had before in miami or maybe they call up the raiders. And see what it would take to get mario but it's a mess. 'cause they're offensive line right now is banged up carson. Wentz to me is not a an attractive starting quarterback unless he has his athleticism. He's got his own. You've got troubles. When he's one hundred percent healthy. And i think they've certainly won the award for kinda the worst week one of training camp and i. I don't think full going there. He pitched themselves to go there. But he's got guaranteed money in the next year. And i don't necessarily wanna pay that greg before we let you go a lot of talk being made about tyreek hill. Verse hussein baltin erase decay. Metcalf try and make the olympics Came up a little short. We are watching these olympic games. Do you think about which. Nfl players would do well for example. How do you think aaron. Donald will do in the hammer throw with like training. It's so life..

"It was wasn't really warranted. Your optimism heading because everyone else around your quarterback was going to be. Your quarterback is the giant question mark. So now you've got rid of one giant question mark for another like you should be in the exact same place you were yesterday. They answered a question with a question. Yeah but with the younger healthier question. it's i think the colts fans should feel fine. I mean it's been ten plus years since the since the super bowl. I get you now. Have the the entitlement to be upset. When you're knocking on the door trying to win and i just go out and get carson wentz. You roll the dice. The call their hand in the cookie jar a little bit and see. Of course you're upset. And kurt warner example. At the end of last segment was obviously the absolute best cure scenario. Think about just think about a team that was in this situation less than a year ago. The los angeles chargers. They drafted a guy who nobody really knew. He wasn't that great at oregon and suddenly he gets thrown out there unexpectedly and was incredible. And now he's like the top five fantasy quarterback heading into this year. People think justin. Herbert is is the second coming of john elway and so translate into any team success for them just yet. Everybody thinks that thinks the charge is going to be a better. Go against patrick mahomes twice. Indianapolis hasn't much better team around him around jacobson. The chargers have around justin. Herbert just be healthy. Just be available. Just go out there and plans saying go out there couple of throws and i think. Why can't the colts go ten and seven and make the playoffs. It's that time of year when when when anybody could do anything in the nfl. And if you're a fan of team you think that anything's possible anything's going to happen to your team. However if you're the colts this morning you realize yeah. Super bowl is probably not in the cards share. Maybe i don't think it should have been in the cards with carson wentz anyway. Why not when healthy and mvp candidate when healthy healthy has four years ago. That's the thing. I think it's been a long time. It's been a long time for that guy. I think i think we're all hopeful. We were thinking maybe he was going to be a sleeper and put up big numbers. Like we've seen him do four thousand yards thirty touchdowns. But i was one of those people is you know i. I watched a ton of colts games last year. Because i had jonathan taylor and i had a ty hilton. And i had the defense. So i spend a lotta time watching the colts and i really thought carson wentz sneakily could've put up a great fantasy football season. That defense is top notch. They've got as sick offensive. Line got nelson. Who might be the nastiest lyman and football. They've got jonathan taylor. you know. got a decent group wide receivers. So you know. I think gardiner mint you make this trade for garment units coming. I think he can lead them to i. I love anytime you can flex on a conversation and just sort of you know. Throw your your credibility on the table like you know. I've watched a lot of colts games. Let me tell you something about my big taylor guy. And it's a flexi can't always throw out there in many social situations the shack comes. You gotta split it three ways. You can't be like oh you know. I watched a lot of colts. Ks so as well played tj depending on. How meeting with. I might not even go from my wall a by the way we our lunch this week because you know last time i was on the show.

Even though mellow one four out here tweeting. Wow kevin durant of bucket you got the most points ever for an olympian. That's incredible melody. Eight over seventeen years and he loves mellow.

The adoration that it's gonna come for wherever this man chooses to play basketball next whatever city. He blesses with his talents and his availability. This the adoration. That's going come. It's going to be a sous nami filling pulling allot anthony and just saying like just go. Just get to the back. Just go back to your seat.

Everything sort of passed over it because when it happened it happened right at the as the draft started into that everybody was focused on all the other moves and all the other picks and the story lines around the draft woke up this morning. Russell westbrook can be playing basketball for the los angeles lakers. And if you know me you know. I've been very critical of russ over the years. Oftentimes thinking of him as a stat. Compiler i didn't appreciate when he wore the photography smock and his first game against kevin durant at oracle an oracle. You know kevin durant like thirty five on or something i. I wasn't a fan of the way he behaved in game. Six of the two thousand eighteen playoffs when he was outplayed. In the series by ricky. Rubio this man behave this way in an elimination game. He shot seven of nine thousand. Nine hundred for threes russell. Westbrook thought you know what my team has got. Its back against the wall. I've got paul george and carmelo. Anthony let me shoot nineteen threes way to behave in a basketball game so i was always very critical of that shut. Eighteen of forty three that night for forty six points absurd. The guy shot thirty percent from three overs career. Forty four percent from the field. And you don't think about this with russell. Westbrook drafted by the seattle supersonics. How long is like the seattle supersonics were in the mix and the nba. There are photos out there. Russ on draft night with an ill-fitting seattle supersonics. Hadn't i say that this point out. He's been in the league for a long time and so it might be easy to think well. He's on his four team in four years. He hasn't gotten far in the play. I hadn't been a conference finals since he's been with k. d. he's on the downside of his career. Uh-huh i'll be the easy. Take this morning guys for the laker hater. To come in and say lakers get another bloated superstar the bloated contract..

"The i think the the issue though is that there are very players that will leverage to pull it off and you know really the guys who the levers to pull it off for guys who have a lot of money in their bank accounts and the guys were teams. Look at it and say that's the kind of guy that i'm willing to go all in on and give up. Big time draft capitals. Go and get and so Yeah i mean. I think you could see more of it. The quarterback position and maybe a couple of other spots Where you know players are valued at that level. But i don't think that if you change the way business on in the nfl for say your your your your normal really solid even pro bowl linebacker or you're really solid pro bowl guard. I think if there is changed the calmest from this. I think it's going to be sort of reserved for the of the albert bridge joins the show the monday morning quarterback ben lines in for rich. This is the rich eisen. Show devastating news for rams fans out here in los albert with the news. Coming that cam acres running back for the rams has torn. His achilles suffered a torn achilles while training and he's going to be out for the season. How does this impact the balance of power. Not only in the nfc west but also in terms of a real threat to tampa in the conference. Because i go through a lot of these rosters and now i add the rams to the list. Alber lot of question marks on these teams with aaron status in in green bay question. Of course i. I don't know who the real challenger is to tampa in the conference especially now with acres going down. Yeah and i. I think i know you wanna look at this Ms yes he had a chance to be really good player but if he was going to be what he was last year. I don't think the. Drop off from acres to daryl henderson. Is that precipitous. Where it's going to change the fate of the season now if acres were to become the rams thought he could become a ton of untapped potential acres. He's a high school quarterback. Play behind it really really shaky off into line in college. So the whole thing with acres is always. There's going to be more there eventually. He's going to grow the tailback eventually. Become more so. If you're talking about what the rams thought acres could become which i mean. Isn't that far off from what they had a few years ago when todd gurley. Was this prime then. Yeah i mean like you're losing a lot but if you're talking about the player yet last year i actually think they'll henderson. And whatever they have depth lies can at least approximate it or the threat of the running game is there. And that's such a big part of sean mcveigh's offenses threat of the running game opening everything else up into marriage between the running game passing game so I think it takes away the superstar potential. The rams had in the backfield with acres. But if you're talking about just what was last year. I think they can find a way with what they have in house to approximate what they add last year albert oftentimes throughout history. The team that loses the super bowl struggles even get back to the play offs. I don't think anybody's thinking that. With kansas city heading into the season. But when you look at the chiefs and as they regroup and try to make another postseason. Ron what's the big story line. You're paying attention to kansas city as we're about to get things going. Yeah i think it's you know as much as anything. El- The changes in the season. And revamping the offensive line. That's the big one you know They went through a similar sort of rebuild before they want suv on defense when they added tire matthew and frank clark and really kind of got it that group and started over and they went through some struggles early on even inside they eventually got there but it just took some time right like for everything to come together. And they've done you know similar sort of overhaul in the office of line this year. What happens in the super bowl. After the injury issues they had the tackle position and bringing in orlando brown. And kyle long. Drafting creed humphry You know. I think making all the changes that they've made up front bringing you know Laura onto do rene tardif back They the hope is when you get to december january. That group is going to become this team strength. that was a couple of years ago But i think anybody knows about offensive line play. We'll tell you that that can take some time. So i think what. I'm most interested in watching the chiefs and i know with the boring answer to this question. I mean they're good. They're still good in a lot of different spots. What's really interesting here is sort of wear. That offensive line is in september and october and if that could wind up affecting you know where they are from the scene perspective when we get to the playoffs. Because i do think they would get to a point later in the season where they're just fired those positions because they did bringing a lot of good players senior. Nfl reporter our breer kind enough to join the show. Monday morning quarterback. We appreciate the time. I hope to meet you in real life. I feel like. I've talked to on the radio. Twenty or thirty times over the years. Perhaps we can hang out face to face in realize sometime. Hopefully we can do that. Hey i want to send my well-wishers generates to get well buddy We all can't wait to have you back on absolutely sending a lotta loves to rich. And we appreciate you making some time for us albert. Thanks so much man all right thanks that albert joining the show given us little updates on all things kansas city chiefs of course the status of aaron rodgers. Tb twelve at the white house player. Mobility's interesting he's talking about it. The other positions. I think of odell beckham and he's moved twice in his young career. Probably going move a third time. Julio jones arena c. metcalf move. I think it's good for the league to see these star players in the prime of their career change teams. It works for the nba. Maybe it'll work for the nfl. Something else. I want to chat about next. Sports have gone global. We know that star power is international away in the united states. Really never been before the nfl. Keep up with the current trend in sports. We'll get into that next. Plus we've got. Nick swisher calling in talk all things baseball and meditation and being chilled and relaxed and totally chill is encourages. The rich eisen show.

"Been chris's approach. Maybe today he might wanna think about switching. Ask about the family. See what is vacation plans. Are you know in the previous twelve times raft. His games and he and he's given the ice grill. Maybe walks up to him and says hey man. What kind of protein or you're working with. I've been doing beyond meat and it's caused a great season working out. Yeah you sweat on purpose. how are you man. She had whatever you do them before temporarily not working so switch it up. A little bit of the sons can change up their approach with how chris interacts the game. They have cameras everywhere all over the arena. We got cameras and guys count money. We got cameras on dell. We got cameras everywhere. Can we get a camera on chris paul before the game and how he interacts with scott foster. My bucks fans friends are actually worried. They think the scott foster assignment is the nba trying to throw us off the scent like oh crystals twelve and the scott foster games. Let's throw scott foster out there. He's got maybe go the other way tonight so you think that has implications with the line in vegas. The other way the idea of he can't possibly go. Oh and thirteen against scott foster. Come on lay a couple on the sons wink wink wink on tonight. Yeah the coronation of this thing in milwaukee that seems like the coronation of jaanus is inevitable. It just seems that's coming. He's the huge favourite for finals. Mvp right now. No one is even close to him and yeah. I think it's going to happen. I actually think it's going to happen. Milwaukee is the better team right now. They're playing better basketball. Like i said it'll cut all hinges on chris. Paul's health ben lines in for rich is in on the rich eisen show. I wanna point out a tweet. I had earlier in the series. The sons are just better at every aspect of basketball. And also have a guy named devon booker. so it's a wrap. Thanks for playing on twitter at the moment. always looking at it from a bird's view. But i bring that up because it feels like we're prisoners of the moment now in this coronation of jaanus as the greatest player on the planet coronation of the milwaukee bucks as an organization new ownership group bring legitimacy back to the franchise to the city. And what's amazing. Is you look at their best players. The two longest tenured guys on the team. Jaanus and chris middleton have been in milwaukee the longest it's a copycat league will teams. Now try and have continuity try and keep their core nucleus together as opposed to going out there and assembling a team a superstar china you know throw throw together a team of boldface names to make a short run at it or the ability to the draft. You do you build with your star players and invest in them long term as opposed to rent a player which has seemed to be the kind of trained in the nba. Or are we gonna see phoenix. Make some type of adjustment beyond ski. The interaction of kristin scott lorrimore so for moncey in an xs and os you start fouling jaanus in a real way in a in a way that takes him out of the flow of the offense makes the crowd feel like they're part of it at first but ultimately take them out of it because there's less of a flow to the game and you don't get those seven. Oh runs eleven. Oh runs that really get everybody involved. You put jaanus on the free throw line four times like to do to shack back in the nba finals. What can you do if your money williams to change.

"This is the rich eisen show to the richeisenshow. Ben lyons in for rich hanging out with the guys as always you can be a part of the show does hit us up at rich eisen. Show that conversation rich had with damian lewis was from three years ago and some of the themes that ridge brought up in the in. The interview seem rather relevant. Now don't they guys Man it's really interesting. It's really interesting. He had some comments where he thinks that you know they're not close but it doesn't seem like he's close to demanding a trade right. It's an interesting thing that's happened in the nba. Since the gotcha final. This is the ten year anniversary of the gotcha finals. Two thousand eleven is the first time in my memory. I remember the collective energy around the sport basketball was gotcha. You said you were going to win. Four five and six miami and you did and jj berea shut you down in game for which happened at happened. It happened but since then some other stuff has happened to. And that's a whole other conversation regarding lebron. But i bring this up because the collective energy around basketball changed. Now there seems to be a villain. There's somebody who receives the vitriol from the collective because of choice of wanting to switch teams. Which is absolutely ridiculous about chemo life. Tj doing awesome. Job here. I know how much you love working here. You talked about last week on your off week. While i was in doing the show you would have loved to come in for a segment. You love hate to tell you. If dan levitan calls with a big check some tells you might be going to miami. Okay it's okay and you'll get a lotta love from everybody here too rich and and chrissy might be a little salty at first. Who else are they going to make fun of the cowboys to show. Go on. but you'll be allowed to switch teams and not have the entire sports media world screaming for your death. You're probably right damian. Lillard doesn't know if he's going to have that option or not. He signs up for this. He might come with all this other stuff. Which is totally understandable. If somebody in his position is quick to sign up for that or to be hesitant about that or genuinely on a human level conflicted so this this narrative around okay and i. It was lebron and it's k. d. Then it's ad now it's lillard and there's always going to be a guy who's who fans are either pushing out or pushing to see if they double down on staying was almost honest last year exactly and i think that's a big reason why milwaukee's having success. They got that out of the conversation. And by the way Ben this is probably going to be delightful. Newsweek to your ears. It's going to be zion next year because it's already started. Zion is going to be with his third head coach in threes. Nba seasons fourth. If you count coach k. And he is going to get that. He started up himself with mecca comments when the ken's played the knicks. You know a few months ago and it's going to happen again and it's going to happen every single year. There's someone huge. That's up in free agency. I wonder if our radio audience can hear my smile. It's enormous it's ear. Great thank you. It's like ben. Affleck says in that poker movies as you can see my smile. It's ear to ear comes to mind i. I'm a huge fan of christopher known We're gonna talk a little bit about the anniversary of the dark knight later on in the show but one of the other great films is inception and one of my goals this week. Coming in to fill in for rich on the rich eisen show ben lines here in studio was to inception the zion conversation to mark and it worked in the second segue until wednesday drew holiday throwing up that alleyoop speaker jrue holiday. We talked about this. And we'll get we'll figure out what happens with dame he'll either say something or not say something over the two weeks japan august versus the new july first them before the draft or they hold onto him after the draft. I i don't. I think you'll be in portland for long term. I think i kind of him. Demanding a trader low very low. It's just kinda hyped right now teams already sampling cheese steak skies of the philly variety. You mentioned i mentioned holiday. And we celebrate the gronkowski family and those other bras. Don't even play these crush life right. We were they. Were backup fullback. We celebrate anyone. Who's got the name manning. It could be a second cousin twice. Removed playing high school somewhere in the region. Right now right at six on six in texas. There's a manning's lighten it up right and everybody goes nuts. Holidays onto the kudos. They got five guys in the nba finals or they're five dollars in the nba six guys in the nba six guys guys in the nba finals. Yeah yeah yeah. Three the final six in the nba. If you took a family of janas family druze family cartridge. Let's throw in the curry's and the morris family four families can can. I get some titles and four years from that team about that. It's incredible you need to celebrate the holiday family and if you break it down by position to you got you got staffing. Mvp's yup he got. He got nba champions inside outside inside outside size. Versatility you got the morris brothers hudson's for tougher dacians grit you've got you've got depth. They always talk about. When you're guarding a great player your beloved brooklyn nets the brooklyn globetrotters. You have so many memories of going out to the barklays just so many nights that game. Seventy loss at home against nate robinson and the bulls that eat set. You still the diehards. In brooklyn i digress. But the idea that could that team go out there and compete with some of the great family like the great other teams in the nba. Right now the tea and that's what we were asking before the show is could that team those four families. The curry's the attentive kudos the morris. Brothers holiday holidays could they beat a healthy brooklyn nets and a seven game series. Could they beat healthy eastern conference. All stars yonathan steph andrew holiday. There's your big three.

"Ben lines filling on a friday. This is the rich eisen show where we spent the first hour on the show knocking around some names for team. Usa who might take up the roster spots left vacant from bradley beal and kevin love might be olympic mellow. Maybe it's julius randle. What about trae young. Well woes bomb kelvin. Johnson and javale mcgee jehovah will replace blat bradley. Beal and kevin love on team. Usa's roster for the olympics sources tell espn. The will travel to las vegas to join team. Usa on saturday javale ghee out in tokyo for the olympics. Oh my goodness Somebody that i think team. Usa should have given a real look. And congratulations to javelin calvin johnson. I think they're going to be great additions for the usa squad but somebody that team usa should've taken a closer look at one of the great three point shooters in the history of the nba. In fact i think he's ninth all time in three point percentage this man when he would catch the ball massive square garden in the corner. The place would go nuts before it even left his hand and now he's calling games for the box. He's a friend of the show. Steve novak did anyone from team. Usa reach out to you. Steve steve novak joins the show. Right now. ben lines flown in for rich on the richeisenshow. Nobody reached out steve Well not yet. I mean listen. My phone is still on and i worked for the bucks now. Basically just so that. I'm close enough. That if they ever need a guy for a ten day. I'm right there. They know what time it is and look if javale mcgee can get a call. I feel like you're right. My phone's on. I might still get a call. To for god's sakes javale mcgee doesn't even shoot threes. He's just playing defense. We're doing here. We need more three point. Shooter saw available. That's what i'm talking about steve. And you're you're getting the chance to watch a couple of future olympians every night in the nba finals. And you've got two of them out there in milwaukee and jrue holiday and chris middleton of course devon booker on the other side of things for the sons. But i saw your twitter that you wanted to give. Chris middleton big hog the other day. Would you get a chance to give a big hug after that forty burger wasn't for this damn covert thing. I think i probably would have been able to give them a hug. I didn't actually. But i think he knows and spirit there was about a million hugs coming his way. 'cause my god i mean got us under court at the end of the game. 'cause of the performance he had really just especially in the fourth quarter but forty points in a game four at home. And it's just like you go back to phoenix down three one. If you lose that game. I mean phoenix's plans so well at home that i didn't give them a hug but i mean that was i if i've seen him i think i'd give them a smooch. That's the truth steve. Novak joins the show once a nick. Always nick one of the great all-time shooters of the rock milwaukee's own wisconsin's own grew up in. Wisconsin played high school basketball for your dad. And you go to marquette and you run it with d. Wade all the way to the final four. Get a chance to play in milwaukee alongside yanni and. Now you're calling is games. Just as the milwaukee kid. The wisconsin kid. What's it like to have the nba finals in your backyard. They really special look. It's been forty seven years since the bucks were in the finals and to get a win and to be sitting there in the in at the arena at pfizer form with my wife and my son and watching it. It's just like he has no idea how specialists is. But you know i like you said i think back to when i was seven eight nine years old and i was watching the bucks and it was big dog and ray allen and george carlin. They made it to the eastern conference finals and for me that was that was that was just like watching your superstars and it'd be in your hometown team and so for the bucks to back here. I do. i think it it really. Is you know someone like me. Has the perspective and everybody my age or older. Just how special this is. And i think what is done and committing to be there for five years this offseason. It feels like it's not even it's not even not talked about enough. I mean it's like the milwaukee blocks not the lakers. Not the miami. He not the big market. New york's are in the finals this milwaukee and it's just i mean honestly what he's done committing to this franchise committee five years not one year at a time plus one a plus another like a lot of the stars do. It's just different right now. And i think you know he gets all the credit it's historic. He's going to have a statue out in front of five. Serve at some point. Obviously it's just. He's so special and if he can get this championship done tied up to two right now. It's just. I think the city is gonna be on fire. It's buzzing right now for sure. What's been so cool steve. To see his growth in his journey has story and to see unfold. Like you said all in one place. In milwaukee i remember early on his career him having a court thing. They have smoothies here in milwaukee. This place is amazing. If you think about the life journey where he came from. It's remarkable what do you remember about your interactions with jaanus. And what's it like now for you as someone who is teammates. Now be calling his games and see him like you said Develop into the future statue that he is really has been amazing. I think you know when he was drafted and i was. She's i don't know in college at the time Or you know what it felt like. And you're you're looking at this guy gets picked and go on. Who who is this guy. I was playing in the league at the time. But you're looking at this guy going. Who who is this guy. He's from greece. Everyone's saying he's two years away from being two years away and it was honestly just kinda confusing. Pick where you went. How good can you possibly be. And then. I ended up being his teammate. For two seasons and seeing them up close and how he worked and who he was he doesn't have any hobbies. He plays basketball. It's his passion. His family is his passion and he's the different. He's a different guy. I don't think that there's i can't think of another star that would've signed a five year extension with the milwaukee bucks one about it the way he did where he just said. I don't wanna work out with other stars in the summer. I don't wanna be invited to space jam. I don't really wanna be buddy buddy with all these guys that i am trying to beat to win a championship. And i'm gonna stay in milwaukee the team that picked me and basically we great to my family and believed in me and saw me as the future this franchise and now he's been able to build a team around him and got guys to come here like jrue holiday. Chris middleton ben with them really this whole journey. But it's just amazing. I think how he's inspired and more than anything elevated all the guys around which is really what makes you know stars that next level specialists.

"Her. That's we bought a minute. The have prevented off by donald curry back. Get to the rim own great nowhere skies. He backs and jr smith for covers. I mean that blocked to save the game at the end of the game down three one series on the line. Lebron kenny get it done. There's no this is for you cleveland. Moment without that play. So the circumstances around elevate greatness now he also chased down with dollar running from half court but i think janas spinning backwards turning around blocking seven footers trying to dunk on his head. I think just for maybe. I'm looking at it from the physicality of might be more impressive however the context of course i'll go with lebron's play is the greatest defensive play in nba history. Lebron's play is the most important impactful. There's so many sliding doors moments with lebron's play history yet to be written when it comes to the janas block but he did have some insights after the game when he was asked about the play. As i said like. I didn't jump to block the ball. I jump towards the rim. The i feel like that's what kind of help me put him in position to Get the plug. Because i jumped. That was right here. So i jumped here so he could like should the ball if he shot the ball to Backboard you probably be goaltending. You know but he tried to donkey. So i was Earlier than him. Yana census gupo after the game. Ben lines in for rich on the rich eisen show. And it's just a ridiculous play at a time. When milwaukee desperately needed a stop and he showed up and gave us one of the great moments and what makes jaanus such a superstar is not only did he give us a great moment on the court then. He gave us a great moment after the game when he was asked about this thing. He's been doing now where he checks out of the game in the first quarter at a time when superstars don't usually look for a breather. Look for arrest. Jaanus has been checking himself out of the game and nobody really knows why he explained it afterwards. Honest this was the second year in a row. You went out early in the first quarter. I'm just curious what was going on there. I what the hell you guys say. Politely ticket yeah. Yeah i want to take the came back. that's it. that's that's polite tinkle's.

"It will be a good kind of foundation to continue on into next year. Ridge climate joining us here. What are you most excited about it as a basketball fan in general, like with all these teams coming back? Obviously, there's a 1,000,000 storylines. What is the thing that you're most interested in watching in the bubble? I mean, I'm I'm just interested in watching Basketball the highest level in this environment, You know, it's it's just so it's going to be so interesting to see what Effect. No fans has different teams. You know how much of a home court advantage Benefitted certain organisations, and that's the kind of thing that I think about. It will show us it'll reflect and you look and I'm not saying this to me, Mike Oklahoma City and I know letting so much time there that that environment can help will victory a times and you got a lot of young guys. So you know, there's a team like that able to deal with this kind of new foreign environment as well as some other vets without their fans. You don't know I don't know. But that could happen, you know, and even LeBron who you know, will perform no matter what at any time. You know, he's he's so incredible. It's feeding off the fans and knowing how to manage that and use that to his benefit. Now he's obviously going to be able to overcome any circumstance. But it's interesting to see those dynamics, you know, in the Clippers, who people say May not necessarily have the same home court is other people will now you can't say that it's just about your your mob. So I think that part is cool. And I'm just really excited to see Houston, you know, enjoy watching those guys. Russian James, and I'm just big fans of them. So Rich. I said the same type of thought process at the top of the show. I'm interesting and how, but I'm interested in how the dynamics of the bubble effects the game we know and love and also the interactions and how what kind of innovations have to be made on the game? But there's also another side of this, too, is like what's coming out of the bubble as faras content in what the what the fans can consume, and there's so much curiosity about what's going on in there. And I'll bring this up with you because you run the board room, which is a platform that starts the conversation in sports, but it's really focused in strategy and business and tech and so I'm going to ask an expert in you the business opportunities that are out there. Content wise. We're seeing that there have been some blogging stars like that. See Sybil Javale McGee has put up his own YouTube channel of content. Jamal Crawford is giving a behind the scenes looks for the board room of his life inside the bubble. What are the opportunities? That you imagine that you would advise if you were a business partner of these guys to take advantage of while they're in the bubble. Um well, I answer that two ways in the overall business perspective. I think that like any New thing in life for new occurrence or new Event of some sort. There's opportunity that arrives and something of this magnitude will will do the same. There will be players that I think, you know, create a reputation for how they Correspond with better fans. People that will create Siri's or first looks at things that I hope people enjoy what Jamal is doing for us with the boardroom and showing his personality and interacting with other teams and his teammates. But in terms of what I would say to somebody would be nothing like it's a business trip, but with a business trip means just focus on basketball, and you know, I was going to say that That's what I would say right now. If someone said, Well, I wanna walk around my phone and I want to be ableto give people behind the scenes look well, then that's organic to them, and that came naturally and that was really I said to someone Look, it's your turn to start getting expose it. It won't be right. So I would just say handle basketball and you know the best business and the best kind of Success you could have off the court will come if you're playing, you know, is the best possible your life while the whole world is watching more than ever rich climate joining us here on ESPN Radio co creator of the boardroom, Kevin Durant's business partner, partner, I've got one more question for you and then a quick anecdote on the way out for you that I think you'll like. Um, we were talking about Tibbs. Obviously getting hired in New York. The Nets have a coaching vacancy. Who would you like to see? Interviewed or potentially get thatjob rich? Well, The thing is, they don't have a coaching. They can see they have a head coach, saying Jack Bond, Great head coach and season's not over. So for me like I really believe in him, and I'm I'm looking at it that way right now. Now, obviously, if it doesn't work out or either one of them inside the car weighs Well, you know, obviously have a prior to do that. But just as ah, onlooker, you know, it's not something that I would get involved in any way. But right now, I'm just rally behind job. Watch it now, my guy, Ben Lyons is listening. And he just text me. You know him Well way We have a mutual friend Ben lines, he said to tell Rich climb and you heard the Collegiate Dutchman on his Fieldston eagles and that Sam Gilbert was overlooked. He wanted me to pass that along to you before we let you go. So again, I answer that. I do love Ben Lyons and I think they're lies. Is incredible..

"Him as a package right experience. Okay. Happy ship ring. I've taught Lord general. I've talked to enough players in this league over the years that will tell you that the smart like I'll give you a perfect example. Right. Dwayne Wade told me the two smartest players who's ever played with LeBron James and Rajon Rondo and he said, and it's not even close. So, you know, I think that that that plays a role in and the Lakers don't have that, you know, jail was not known as that guy. Michael. Beasley was not known as that high Q tie player coming in so Lance certainly not known as that guy. So if you look at the roster, they're void of that. And then Casey P, I thought had some interesting comments. He talked about how Lonzo needs to be more aggressive. He said he's the head of the snake. When he goes we go when your teammates like your coach talks about your teammate talks about it. I got some point it needs to click for Lonzo. It cannot be passive thing anymore. I understand it's not necessarily his personality fiery to be Rondo, but he may need to get more of that in him too. I think fulfill the potential that people have for whether it's here or somewhere else for that matter. But it's fascinating to me. How the guys even within the locker room construct are viewing this particular experience right now. So. We'll take we can take some calls on that. If you wanted eight seven seven seven ten ESPN because I'm sure like there's no way you can listen to those guys and not think. Oh, yeah. That doesn't make sense. But Ben lines doesn't think I make sense when it comes to drew Brees versus Aaron Rodgers when we were doing the trending segment, why are you so like bent out of shape? Like, why is it drew Brees? All of a sudden, this guy that can't be slandered in any way, shape or form. Now that I'm slandering him. I'm just saying that Aaron Rodgers isn't better than him cured. What am they better? Save on sucking this terrible weather in Los Angeles. It's raining. So as you know, the entire city shuts down when it's raining realize either aren't going to beating Knicks games manner till October. That's like nine or ten months from now, they're going to be leaning Laker games in matter. After the next twelve weeks the way things are going. There season's going to end in the middle of April. So I'm sitting here stewing, and I hear you say if I had to take one quarterback to win the Super Bowl, breezy Rogers. Who would I take right now and with such conviction you said the guy who's been sitting on the couch? For two weeks. Like drew Brees is undefeated home. He I'm terrified of drew Brees Aram fan this weekend. This man has gone on Ellen and Oprah and presented the city of New Orleans and had passing records, and is an incredible talent woods that the idea of Aaron Rodgers being. But he's he's thirty thousand passing yards short so hundred touchdown. So he's a hundred or two hundred touchdown sort one hundred games sort like, he's complainer, and he's just never really been a leader and changing the play calls and hear.
