You're there how do you remember feeling about your team's chances headed into that series against Chicago? So the unique thing about an athlete is that you have to have something that I call a rational confidence. I've sat in the locker room multiple days of my life and said that I was better than Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant Shaquille O'Neal. Tim Duncan none of them could guard me. None of them had a chance. That's what you have to tell yourself or you might as well not put on shorts and the shoes and you know that you're the underdog and you're going against all time greatness so for us. We wanted to end the height. We wanted to shut up. All of the Jordan stands so on the floor. It was like we about the eliminate Mike in not have him.

"And that was the one and only time that I ever heard him really compare himself and basically call himself the equivalent of Michael Jordan but I think he was right. You know they. They both did it that way. That was the approach and I think their style of leadership was similar as well. Well you know they talked about it right now that you read that you know. That wasn't just Koby analyzing Michael you know that they had to have those conversations and one of the things. Koby said to the last dance director. Jason did a big long every with colby and I remember him telling me a little bit about this and some of the you know. They were one of the things that Kobe and Michael will talk about was Kobe would say to him. What do we do with? What would you about people who With teammates who don't work as hard with you know how do I get you know with with is that I can't motivate and Michael say to Kobe. Look you know. Those guys aren't going anywhere right but if you fast forward all these years later what's going to happen with. What are they going to say? If you don't win are they gonNA say oh. Yeah that's just because you know. Whoever named your teammate wasn't into it wasn't devote whatever no they're going to say it's because you couldn't win so you have to do whatever it takes to get these guys to win you have to you have to be that single minded and that was always. Michael's advice to Kobe and this is what Kobe told the last dance right and it was kind of reinforcing. What you're just talking about their Jay. This idea of like that ultra. Some people would call it selfishness. Some people would say that selfish assuredness that idea that Kobe always wanted to take the last shot he had. This like single-minded belief in himself like yes. I am the best option teammates. I just trust myself more more right and it was like that's kind of that's kind of what he and Mike would talk about. And it's like you know you like everyone's a when I say something we're all show by. Ego will come through or my little arrogance of show through like almost feel like I need to apologize for sometimes right like you don't want to say like you know you know. I wrote that story the Best. I say something like that like I'm like Oh yeah. That's that sounds weird right like you know how it sounds coming out of your mouth right. There was no apology from counter or Michael and I think that is that single minded in yourself where where you do not apologize for your greatness and your own selfishness but like self assuredness. That's definitely what they got from each other today..
The Steph Curry comparisons are unfair to Trae Young, but they won't go away
"We now safely say the trae young is the next steph curry. I if you want to. I don't know there's so many other things that I have to worry about. I don't if you WANNA do that. Go ahead you'RE NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa Yell at you and go. He's not the next steph curry. I do like this though the approaches. Yeah but does he play defense? Can we stop with this? How many how many guys play defense in the NBA? But let me stop somebody in crunch time. Can anybody stop him by being declared the next anybody? You're already less than them. Because that's your title like Steph. Curry was the first do it that way and so the next curry means you're automatically below them. You're an imitator. I mean it's great. He's fantastic player but he's basically modeling his craft. Well that's why you don't want people were there. Everybody's looking for the next Larry Bird. Mike member Keith. Van Horn as the next Larry Bird now. Luca Danni checks next Larry Bird. No LUCA IS DIFFERENT THAN LARRY. Bird he might be better than Larry. Bird a when it's all said and done on out there we keep waiting for the next Michael Jordan. Kobe became the original. The first Koby we keep going. Oh He's the next and and you're not who is ever the next. We love comparisons. We love cops but it doesn't always work that way and usually if it's a white guy who's good then you find another white guy who is you know got similar skillset. Glad Yeah. Googles is the next Larry Bird UNC. But until that person becomes the first they're always going to be on next you know because you haven't seen it yet so it hasn't even been identified. When do you graduate to? I'm no like when did Kobe. He's not the next Jordan. He's Kobe did he. Oh I think he did well. No he wasn't the next. Nobody's the next Jordan. You can't be now possible now if you want to say. He plays like him great when Kobe went black. Mamba then he became the original Kobe. And he wasn't the next Michael Jordan. Because we realize there's not going to be another Larry Bird just not. There'll be players who might be similar. Might be better. But there's that's the original Muhammed Ali. This not the original. Might be guys who turn out to be better. But they're the originators. Yeah pulling yeah like Koby Bryant. He he appeared to watch documentaries he admittedly modeled everything after Michael Jordan and he came up about this short of having an equal career to Michael Jordan. If you look I mean considering how close he was to the time of Michael Jordan. He over and he was really close to having an equal career.

"I've never, you know, this many years into your career sixteen years. I don't know if anyone is played the way that the bronze play. But I, but I still think you know, I it's a table, and he Jordan Kobe all them at the table. I I don't know if anyone that's that. At the head of the table because they're doing it today that that's all okay. But kids growing up now, our our our players try, they try to emulate LeBron the way the players of a different era like you guys were trying to emulate, Michael. Or are they going to emulate James harden or Steph curry or are they going to skip by LeBron because how can you try to emulate what LeBron does? Well, hopefully, you emulate with the Broncos because he's a great teammate. And what I mean by that is he makes the correct basketball player. And so a lot of people no matter how good you are. If you don't have that I q it shows. It's embarrassing. So LeBron's IQ is just off the charts. And so you can't be that player. Now that knows every play on the other team that knows when you get a pickup, but knows your strength. So that when you draw double team, you know to get to. But yeah, I think you know, the game is Curry's right now. I mean curry is in a great way. And I tease him like you messed up the game. I welcome to it. Jim and kids shoot threes. But that's what dominating Jordan did. They messed up the gang because we used to walk in and dunk before we even stretch. So I mean, that's just the way it's going to be. But I think curry just his size. He shows it the game as long as you have skill. It doesn't matter. I'll tell you. He's one of the best ball handlers that we've had. And when he's doing, you know, I love because growing up in Isaiah Thomas fan growing up a fan of all the guards. He's just taking their game to another another level because he has freedom skill set. Maybe they didn't have in the freedom that they didn't have. And so I think you're gonna see a lot more people emulating Terry with trying to turn around while the balls in the air after shooting the three forty five seats and seeing if it goes in also looking at the Greek freak, and Ben Simmons the fact that they're this good. They've gotten this far, and they can't shoot. How does that happen? Chris it happens 'cause they're very good. And it happens because there's no more shop lockers Navia. So they're very good..

"I've been called the biggest hater, and I you gotta let me say this. And I say at Thomas championship caliber team Bursa, LeBron Isaiah wins labor championship caliber team versatile bra Larry Bird wins. Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant Akeem allies in one Tim ducking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the list, go on Kevin Durant, Steph curry this man, if it's Michael Jordan numbers on paper when you watch him play, he Scottie Pippen and the biggest moments in basketball is not a top ten player of all time is brand. It's top top three all time its numbers its top three all time. But the basketball player, which our own is a guy who are fray to talk about and former players curve players. He's not a top ten player of all time. And it's all display right now he had. Twenty four ten and twelve for Rondo last night. He had his numbers. But when the game matters the most LeBron James is is a flat-out ghost. We've been watching the Truman show since two thousand three is over is don't wear and it's been exposed in Hollywood. And I'm sick of it. Well, I wouldn't go to that's the that's why we're I would've I know. No, I'm saying you could say that now, but I wouldn't act like stuff this fraudulent. We saw what he did against the pace is in the place. We saw what he did against Toronto and a playoffs. There have been times when LeBron James has shown up in clutch moments and those players who would be hesitant to talk about him. They never did what he did. Not all of them. The place and all you got to remember the Thomases of the world and a few other hall of famous. They do talk about this man with reference they do talk about the greatness, the transcendent talent that LeBron James is there are things to be critical about EMMY, personally, I think the biggest thing that hates that that hurts LeBron is that he's so addicted to try to control the narrative that it's come back to bite him. Because the fact that a matter is there are times when he deserves the praise and there are times when he does it, but because his his his support his support base is so sensitive about every little thing that said about him as a result. It makes you want to say, wait a minute. This man is praised for more than y'all realize that y'all are willing to acknowledge stop babying him. And champ is a person that ain't about to baby.

"And the answer is starting five is Michael Jordan Kobe Bryant, Steph curry, LeBron James and Shaquille O'Neal most. Unexpected name is arguably Steph curry Kobe Brandon Notre Dame somewhat including why was Magic Johnson left off the list Iverson talked about that and more on the Stephen a Smith show. List? Great kids, man. Early on what he's done in his career for my whole thing is a lot of guys. I miss jars and they talk about their favorite players and some guys from my everyone would say Oscar Robertson. Jerry with didn't watch those guys before my time. Hey, I was fortunate to watch their careers. You know, Nancy? They retire. Go just ask different. So that's how I look at it. Don't whole bunch of the old school guys. I know what they've been Josh far as paving the way anyway, I want we decided guys at excite me. And I wanna see every night. That was Alan average with Stephen a Smith reaction on average time starting five in the scuffling rockets as well. Stephen a Smith on. Sportscenter would stay sage Steele. The guy that I wanna see obviously, you know, Michael Jordan, make everybody's miss. I think is is is some special with staff. Dominant force. Lebron LeBron on my list, and I wouldn't have pick. It wasn't about. It wasn't about. Making a team that could mansion. When a championship or anything like that? My favorite five guys. So I now by Stephen a Smith, of course, that was on Iverson on your radio so earlier, I imagine reaction after that was interesting to say, the least you take us through it. Well, listen, he's got his top five Steph curry, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James's Shaquille O'Neal. You know? It's not about who the best Ghazal.

"He probably didn't. I mean, I mean, who's more focused than the Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant probably know and Russell, right? Yeah. So they really did not. Like one another and the idea that they won championships playing that way is a credit to everyone. So it's triple triangle, triple triangle, but but Chack is hilarious in the scene also. I mean, like, you know, like talking about like when he has bad games and and people are on him and he has to listen, remember the voice of his grandmother and go to his safe spots. You know, Jackson was say that to him to go to your safe spot. He says, so my same spot was what my grandmother told me. I get a Haagen-Dazs male rice cream anthems Piquet. But then call me would say in the film, he says, look, man, you know that fat. Fuck. He's eating McDonald's on the train escaped. He's got this mysterious toll injury. You know, that's not Koby in the end of that scene. And I like this and I think people are going to really dig it man. I end it with the Kobe Bryant retirement ceremony. And then I cut and I use this great zone. And then I cut to the reef seconds of the retirement ceremonies of many other great ones because to me, it's not merely retiring from basketball. It's your next stage in life. It's the end of something where you're the greatest now moving on. So it's Wilt Chamberlain what? What his mother, right? And it's bird and magic and Bach, Louis and Cousy, and Havlicek, and an Earl Monroe and Willis free their retirement ceremonies. And then I end the scene with Kobe and shack at Kobe's thing, given the big hug. But it meant a lot to me to do that. And there are people DSP n. o. cut that cut that no way. Kobe's Kobe's final game, and I was there in LA that day and it was. It was perfect. It was for the people who love Kobe. It was the case they could make for Kobe and the people who hated him. It was everything. They said was wrong with Kobe, the excess the for both sides because he inspires such passion on, you know, pro and con and he he, it was perfect. Kobe. He gave plenty to make each case that night. You know, I'll I'll ask you a question because it reminds me of when I interviewed Chris Paul, and you know who is very close to LeBron James and and he taught me something actually told me a lot lot, but the thing that each want me. I like Michael Jordan, right? I love LeBron, but to me if I'm gonna have one game, I'm going Michael Jordan, right? And Coby is if you think about assassins Adrian, what other really seven or eight history of the game? Right. Real assassins, you know, Sam Jones and bird. And so I asked Chris, Paul. I said, I said, I don't know about LeBron in terms of Koby and Michael Jordan, I'd rather have the other two and he said to me and he's right, he says, no, no, you don't get it. The correct comparison is LeBron to magic. You know, that's the thing you're right. He's not Coby Michael. He's much more of a giver and then that enlighten me and I and I began to watch him in a different way and it's true. It's true. You know, you other thing, Chris, Paul is right about I have seen called signature moves where he describes his signature move, which I define as making the steel. And I coach youth many, many years and men that he teach me stuff. He's the one defender on a two one fast break, and he's at the foul line trying to defend. And he says, where do I put my hands? Adrian, where do I put my hands? So I put him low, put him. Hi, I'm looking and even doing about that. You know, he puts them high. Why do you put them high? Because if his hands are high and the guy with the ball at one lane, he's gonna make the low pass. He's tricking him into making that pass on the floor that bounce pass. So now he'll know now I get my hands down if they're low, it's the alleyoop. That's pretty smart. Dan people know you from the meal Griffith story and the boys of second street park..
"jordan kobe" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"You said he's the greatest might be the greatest mid range shooter. You've ever seen. Three ball can lodge it from thirty five. But as far as scoring the basketball. Jordan, Kobe second, skip. Jordan got more sixty Jordan. Kobe has more sixty points going games than Katie fifty do drop eighty one in a game. He dropped sixty at in three quarters come oh, give I get katie's unbelievable and you look at what he's done. These last two finals, especially the game three who that was big time. But when it comes to just putting the ball in the basket, those other three guys there aren't as efficient in. That's what he is a fishing. He can get your thirty, twelve shots, ten shots, but as far as just putting the ball in the basket for get junk, shooting free, throw, forget all that. Does the ball go in the basket and if it does, he's fourth on my list right now. So let me start on Andrei dollar. I love him because he is deep. He is inciteful. He is courageous and this remark from him about Kevin Durant was penetrating. It was enlightening. I go back a long ways with Iggy because he came on my old show on ESPN a long time ago. It must've been like two thousand eight. Brought me a t shirt that said d. h. on it, which stood for designated hater, but it was all in good. From that point on, he won me over and he actually won a finals MVP. I don't know. I did that, but in part because he was guarding LeBron James that starting in game, what was it for? And that series reinfore. So now to his statement, let's go back to what he said. He's the most talented score of all time. He didn't say he was the greatest score of all time. He just said he was the most talented score of all time that is dead on correct Motala Mike on most talented score of all time way more talented than Michael Jordan. I'm not saying he's better than Michael Jordan. That's not what he said. Most talented score of all time. I said that on TV back in two thousand seven on I take when it had just moved on, I think it was still New York City. I think it's still called coal pizza. I started saying when Kevin Durant was a freshman at the university of Texas when he was averaging twenty six points and eleven rebounds and shooting forty percent from the three point line at seven feet tall. I said, I've never seen a more talented score than Kevin Durant. I said he would win multiple scoring titles in the NBA and everybody, of course laughed at me and the. Other commentators all saying, what are you doing? You're overreacting, you're jumping to conclusions in finally great Bill self head, coach university, Kansas came on as a guest on our show, and he said, hey, I, I was watching you guys, and I gotta tell you skips right about this.
