Welcome, everybody to my second livestream.
I'm Anthony, the host of the fourth Man Podcast that covers the Big Three.
Yesterday was my 1st 1 He got into a little bit of my week. Three predictions.
I completely butcher.
They were most of her.
I tried to take a lot of upset, always run on the underdog.
So, uh, despite that, not going well, it was still fun.
Uh, still learning.
And again, any feedback appreciated.
You can follow me before we get into what we're gonna talk about today.
Please follow me a underscore, Sigi.
That's my personal Twitter account.
Personal social media.
And the show is at fourth Manpad for th man pod on Twitter, instagram and Facebook.
If you want to follow the show, follow any big Three content, you can certainly find it there on our podcast.
Pretty much on any listening stream that, uh, you have our turn into, So yeah, um but yesterday when I was doing my first life scream, I did say I was gonna do another one regarding two Big three news Big Three China toward that's coming up.
Uh, unfortunately, with the news that we heard today on the passing of Andre Emmett and makes the subject of much harder talk about much less exciting.
Talk about, uh, if you guys haven't heard, I'm sure most people have.
Andre Emmett, who was a member of the Big Three and three's company, was 2018 4th Man of the Year.
He was found shot and killed Monday morning in Dallas.
Uh, very unfortunate, Uh, may I see well, shake it a little bit really hard to talk about someone who is very well respected by his peers on his team and family members and everybody else that knew Andrea.
I didn't personally know him.
I just got a chance to talk to him.
He was very fortunate for him to come on.
My podcast, uh, you know, right after he led his team to a big comeback over Killer three's earlier in the year, just a super humble guy who is very passionate about the game of basketball.
But it's also very passionate, uh, just about giving back to where he came from and those in need.
Hey had recently started a foundation called Dre or have the acronym Dre, which stands for trains really exist.
It was to help younger people, um, reached the maximize their potential by given the resource is that need for school in athletics and anything else to put them in the right upbringing.
And ah, yes, just really unfortunate for Andre.
Um, and his family and my prayers go out.
Go out to his family, his friends, all those close to home.
He was just like I said, very well respected.
You saw all over social media, just prayers and people.
Starts out for his family and for him.
How much they couldn't believe it was happening just because he was just a very humble, down to earth guy.
Very laid back, easy going someone you felt comfortable with, someone that was easy to talk to, Uh, just from my understanding.
And so he was part of the Big Three China tour.
He was one of the the 1st 8 members.
Uh, that was confirmed.
That was gonna be on the tour.
And so I was excited.
Talk about this before.
I heard this news this morning, and I'm still gonna touch on a little bit, but just, you know, thoughts and prayers for Andre and his family.
His friends, like I said, those clothes on really wish nothing, nothing but the best for all of them.
And it's just unfortunate news.
And, you know, you could get into the politics of things with everything going on with gun control and just one of those again unfortunate events.
That is somebody.
It wasn't in possession of the these weapons that maybe it could have been prevented.
But that's a whole other conversation.
I know that people, you know, I've had their different perspectives on, but I don't want to get into, uh, it's very unfortunate.
I wish just praying for under.
And it's family and friends, like trying to reiterate that because it is such a such a such a tragedy, such a such a tragic event that happened, you know, Like I said, he was super nice for us to, uh, new Super nice for him to come onto the show.
Uh, when we record tomorrow the podcast at the fourth man, we'll talk a little bit more about it.
His impact on the league is impact on, you know, society outside of the league, and I like I said, it's just you can tell that the Big Three is just more than basketball.
It's a very strong knit community here and now we're going to family.
So, like when something like this happens, you really see the effect on the passion that everyone has for everybody and how much everyone loves each other.
It's just it just makes it that much harder.
And, uh, you know, for him to come in.
This is his second season.
So for him to come in last year, do this thing at the combine become the be the number two overall pick by three's company? Yeah, probably had one of the most historical runs and Big three short history with just what what he did last year to take three's company.
The championship game against Tower, especially after Baron Davis went out early in the season, maybe week three week for just really put this team on the back.
Earned fourth man of the Year of it originally, was coming off the bench and then stepped in the starting role and just really took over.
Uh, I believe it.
I think I saw it was from Will at Big Three News.
Uh, you know, the only upset ever and three years of the playoffs is three's company over.
Believe Ills three with 300 monsters.
It was the first round of the playoffs, and three's company topped the to see when they were the three seed.
You know, I really just made a name for themselves and God and in the playoffs at the last second upset the first team and then, you know, eventually lost the collar.
But all Graham and again, a strong fighting that one continue to fight when things were when things were at their best.
Or when things look like the mayor and possibly continue, like just last evening just really continue to give three's company a chance.
And, uh, you know, again, this season three's company got a bad store, Really, you know, was ableto really able to, like, just get the team going a little bit.
Just hard to talk about somebody and, you know, following this names.
But really, that between going again got them back 23 And to put them back in that playoff, Hyeon just missed the playoffs again.
I believe they finished six this year with the 14th and the mansion.
That's no top half.
The league was second in points in total points this year behind 2019 m. V. P.
Joe Johnson 134 Uh, just creative score.
Obviously, it's more than basketball.
He was He wasn't just a battle player, and, you know, that didn't define him or anything.
But, um was a joy of watching the big three and was just a great presence having the big three.
And, uh, you know, like I keep saying rest in peace under Amit, we're gonna miss you.
And I know that starting with the China tour, I mean starting now, but also starting with the Chinese for, um, we're gonna try to remember under Amit just any way possible.
And they were doing in the big fashion Big Three because they continue Thio, you really be a player's league.
Really be a family, like I've been saying And you know, um, I think next day someone really be dedicated to him just one more time.
Just want to reiterate my prayers and thoughts and condolences air out to his family and friends on, um, talk a little bit about the Big Three China tour.
Um, To end on a higher note is currently in its all season, but they have announced earlier this year that they're gonna have a tour in China.
They're gonna visit six different cities, and it's essentially like a Big Three All Star tour where they're taken.
I believe they're trying to make, like, four teams.
So I guess about each team has six players.
I guess I'd be about 24 players were trying to take the day amounts, originally their first date that they were gonna bring.
Like I said, unfortunately, like Emmett was one of those guys, and that's what makes the subjects are tough.
But in other news, the guys that they're going to that's going to be invited.
Let me pull this up real quickly.
I could try the name it outside my head, But let me just be for certain the players that have been confirmed so far.
Guys like Steven Jackson, uh, Steven Jackson, Amar Stottlemeyer.
Reggie Evans, uh, Rashard Lewis.
So a lot of prominent names, a lot of guys who had really great season this year, we'll buy them being on first year guy and the Big Three.
He had a really good like a really good season could have arguably been that there was a newcomer of the year and Joe Johnson didn't go off.
But I really have been in that Corey McGee.
He's also gonna be on that tour, he confirmed.
So he originally retired after the Big three season, but it looks like he's just gonna give a little bit of an encore, travel toe to China and go on tour with them and kind of brand the Big Three.
Just, you know, we're going international now, so just trying to bring them as best as possible with the right the right personnel on the right guys.
Uh, I also saw that think it was a couple days ago that Glenn Quinn Davis Big Baby, he he announced that he's also been asked to go to China and he's gonna go.
So he was another guy outside the Marquis eight players that they announced that's going to be attending China with himself.
Um, it's cool, you know? I mean, I think where everybody's really excited for the store, obviously like I like Steven Jackson, Reggie Evans, Cory McGeady, Rashard Lewis and the guys have been here from the star.
They're guys that have Ah had a huge role in making the Big 31 of this today, and I think it's I think it's important that those guys, uh, should be on this tour.
I know there's also a couple other guys that probably could have been on this story as well, but it was more about you know who they could get to G.
Obviously, everybody's got other things outside of basketball, other things in their own lives, just other endeavors that they have to do.
And so not everyone's gonna be able to go.
I believe, from what I know, Bill in bite, I guess.
Like 14 16 more players, we'll see if that's really, really the case.
I'm not really sure.
I've only seen Big Baby outside of the original eight names that's been added to the roster.
Try to ask around a little bit a couple players that have gone back to me.
They said they haven't been ashes and maybe, you know, it's a decision ultimately made by Ice Cube and Commissioner Clark Dressler.
We'll see if you know any of that news comes out any time seeing, but obviously we're gonna they're probably gonna wait for a little bit with the morning of Andre Emmett.
Ana just respect him and his family.
It's not about basketball at this moment is not really about you know what the Big Three down? It's just honor and respect him after a great judge are a devastating tragedy that just happened.
So, um, the tour is from November 2nd 2 November 17th it's gonna travel.
I think Shanghai is on that list.
It's the other cities I'm not too familiar with.
Not too familiar with a lot of cities in China.
But I know I did see Shanghai on there.
I think that the place that could be really rocking uh, I know people in China are very passionate about basketball over there, and it should be an exciting environment.
You know, I wish I could go to something like this.
I would be insane to be crazy, to go to China and watch these guys because I know it's gonna be a great tour, another putting a great product together.
It's gonna be just as good over there overseas.
And who knows? Maybe we'll attract some guys who were playing over there to come to the Big 31 day and you know, tryto playing the best there and three professional basketball league in the world.
I'm trying to think of some other news about the China tour.
I can actually tell you the city's So the city's November 2nd will be playing and change chins and things, how you pronounce it.
If I butchered these names, I followed that These air a little bit hard for me to say.
November 5th, they're gonna be playing at Foa, Shawn.
They're gonna be back playing at Dongguan November 9th, Ningbo November 13th Tie Taiwan or Chi Wan, November 15 to Shanghai and number November 17th.
The final day is my call.
I know I butchered all of it is probably except for Shanghai.
Uh, you know, it's kind of scheduled to go on what it looks like.
They're gonna play, like, every couple of days or so.
I don't know if they're gonna maybe mix up teams.
You know, maybe they'll have six to star one of the days and then what kind of mix it up halfway through your mix it up every other game just to get some some different matchups and some different guys playing with each other on just so, you know, make it find upsetting for fans.
That could be It could be an idea that they have.
I'm sure we'll know a little bit more about it later down the road, when it gets closer, we still have about a month, two months or so away, a little under two months.
So they got plenty of time.
But I'm sure that a good a good idea, A good plan in place, moving forward.
Uh, you know, uh, I don't know.
I It's really hard to replace someone like Andre Emmett.
You know, him and David Hawkins, I think, are the two biggest guy that I feel like, really made that made a name for themselves in the Big Three.
They're they're quite people started recognized.
How do these guys really were? And, um, you know, just it's tragic and really hard to talk about.
You know, it's a sensitive subjects, and I just I It really was crushing a C this morning when he saw the news on it.
Mom, the Big Three up posted something earlier in the morning and just crushing to see that you know someone who's trying to help the community, someone who's trying to make young people better.
Somebody's trying to give back because he knows what a tough upbringing is like.
You know, I feel like the good die young.
That's a a very common saying.
But in this station, out again on dream it was only 37 years old.
And to suffer from something like this first, you know, toe look at his instagram and see less than 24 hours ago that he was enjoying life with his two daughters.
It's hard to see and, uh, you know this.
I really just want to try to kind of give it like a little bit of the tribute Andre and his family, You know, when this happened.
Like I said, we'll talk about it more on the podcast.
It's being recorded tomorrow.
If you want to follow or tune into that, it will be released later in the week.
It'll be the fourth man podcast, which could be again found on Apple Google spotify anchor.
Wherever you're listening, it's probably there.
Ah, yeah, Well, when a scene is more news about more details come out about the Big Three trying tour again.
I'll touch on that another live stream, and hopefully we can kind of dissected a little bit.
And if for the most part, it's kind of hard to predict who would be, do they be asking? I don't know if they're gonna go outside the realm of the guys who played in the Big Three because obviously gotta play in the league being All Star first.
But, you know, maybe if the big man comes up, that's something, mate that might intrigue him.
I think a lot of guys deserve it, But whether or not a lot of guys have the time for that couple of weeks, we'll see.
You know, I think November it starts to get to a busy time with Thanksgiving, Christmas and then other endeavors going on.
Being in the middle of basketball season on those guys are analysts or contributing in some ways back to basketball s Oh, it could be a tough time for some people, but hopefully we see the best of the best out there guys with really good seasons.
You know, I'd like to see guys like Ricky Davis out there.
He's gonna stay on the big Three for a while.
Greg Smith, you had a really good rookie season.
It really like to see him out there.
I think our show might be the big Zach advocate for him to go out there.
Um, you know Andre Owens Guy has been there from the start.
I like to see him, too.
So, you know, maybe a couple more of these guys who have been involved with the big Three since day one.
I would like to see representing and continuing to spread the brand of the big Three in the product of it, because I think this is somebody's gonna be around for a while, but anyways, again, rest in peace.
Andre Emmett prayers out.
Condolences out to his family.
I think you guys returning this live stream, like I said, any feedback? It's appreciated.
And again, the fourth man pot will be releasing a new episode later this week, so make sure you guys check that up.
And have a good night
