321 What is up, everybody? Philadelphia 76 or late? Ah, heart stopping Winn.
The Sixers take that land at 105103 I think the Sixers could probably made a little easier on themselves.
Ah, but we're gonna get into that a little bit about down the stretch.
Key players, key plays.
See what happened.
Just already knows.
Like people been asking.
I am a Jersey connoisseur.
I like basketball Jersey.
It doesn't mean I'm a you know, a Kobe Bryant fan doesn't mean a Laker fan.
I'm just an m b A fame.
Okay, so you see Kobe in my background, see a I You see Jermaine O'Neal, little throwback.
And we got a little right, Alan.
Right? So just just some jerseys that that ah the like to ah display when I'm on the air.
Ah, Speaking of Throwback, how about Vince Carter? Vince Carter Did that feel like the Toronto? The Toronto game did not feel like Game seven against the Raptors, right? With a I going blow for blow and it was a lay a second shot.
I mean, we we went for a lay a second shot them a walkie went through a lay.
A second shot, You know it's crazy.
What's up? Ah, thanks for joining them, man.
I mean, unbelievable.
My heart was stopping on that.
It actually look good.
I know about you, but it actually did look good.
Ah, but, you know, it was ah, throwback to Serrano.
Siri's with a I and I just have flashbacks, and they were in good.
Ah, but listen a lot to talk about this game, all right? We were actually talking about how who would be the guy to go to at the end of the game.
Warriors got their first win.
I'll tell you what, that Warriors team and we're gonna talk about that.
We were going around the N b a little bit once we don't bring it on the Sixers, but that warriors senior absolutely right.
I mean, complete difference.
It's basically, like almost a breakdown.
You see, Draymond green come out.
You know he's supposed to be the leader.
Ah, but let's get into the Sixers game real fast so we could talk a little stats.
Okay, First of all, the monks, Scott, foul the ejection.
Absolute flagrant so absolutely ridiculous.
I have no idea what world we're living in right now with n B a game we're actually watching.
I mean, I thought the NFL was being with all the flags and and the phantom calls, but that was absolutely ridiculous calling and shot out the mike that time.
Like Scott, too, because, I mean, you know, he basically No, he grabbed Jones down.
They want to shake his hand because he listened that that wasn't even obey a foul.
I mean, I played I don't know about you people, but I've played prison ball growing up, okay? And yet prison ball.
That's what used to call back in the hood.
And I mean, we were killing each other, and that was like, Ahh, slap on arrest.
What? He did so ridiculous.
Atlanta's Listen, actually, Atlanta doesn't suck.
Here's the thing.
They have a tremendously young team, obviously Coast by Lloyd Pierce used to be assistant with Brent Brown on the six or seen I really like Louise.
I like a style you could see when they get hot.
They could shoot the rock from all over the place.
Trey Young is unbelievable young player.
And there was a lot of, ah hype, you know, back and forth.
Does he shoot? Two months is going to be the next stuff.
Carrie, listen, if you see his court vision in this game just the way he's always look at the past, he's actually calm down from last year.
He's taken better shots.
Okay, But you see, on the night they are, this Atlanta team is tough.
The family Collins is on point when vibrators on point when Trey Young is on point.
I mean, it's a very hard team to depend to defend.
Even 100 played a good game.
I mean, this was a tough game for the Sixers.
And what happened? What was the test? That test again was who was going to get the ball at the end of the game, right? It was gonna be Joel was gonna be Tobias.
And listen, I was wrong when they signed Tobias.
I said he's gonna be gotta close games out.
That's how he was gonna do.
But I was sadly mistaken.
He missed the free throw the end. Okay.
Yeah, well, I wasn't happy about that.
And he missed a couple threes.
That I'm sorry, but there the shots that you're being paid to make That is something that you're being paid to.
D'oh! Okay, Joel.
9 36 points to for six from three.
I would like to see him take less, You know, from the three point line.
Listen, but Bomb was second already.
What's there? Do you think Zion is the next LeBron? Absolutely.
And I was Ah, you know, I was a big guy who was against his eye on pick.
I know you got You're gonna kill me for this.
But I actually said I would have picked John Moran or R J Barry over Zion on Lee because I feel like Zion is a one dimensional player.
I hope I'm wrong.
I hope the kid excels.
I don't wish any ill will on his game at all.
I just think that Barrett or Moran, you see what John Moran Stone right now they're just a multi dimensional talent, and I think they have that over his eye on at this point.
Just my opinion.
Again, I kept I compared this.
You know, I want to get back on the 60.
But I'll tell you what.
I compared this to Larry Johnson and Tracy McGrady if I asked you.
Okay, if we go back 15 years and I say you could drive one of two players Larry Johnson or Tracy McGrady.
Who were you taken? Number one.
I'm thinking I'm taking T Mac all day long because I think Larry Johnson can only do a couple.
Things were changing.
McGrady can do a ton of things, right? So that's what I looked at this draft and I said it was amazing.
Larry Johnson, which is basically a product off Zion.
In my opinion, I don't think he is a LeBron.
I think John Moran or RG Perrin have the chance to be that as T Mac once, I think would be really good for either one of those guys and their respective teams.
But let's get back on the Sixers, okay? We're gonna bring to the normal.
First of all, I say I would take team back to absolutely, and that's what I was saying.
So I wouldn't circle two men, definitely.
But this is the 1st 3 no star for the Sixers since 4013 and 14.
Okay, It's a long time in six.
Or Lane, since we had something to be excited about, Right? Except for last year, we finally start. Take that step.
42% for the field, 27% from 3 11 for 41.
Listen, I understand that we're not always gonna hit the three.
But my problem is can we not take the threes when we have nobody under the glaze? That is my biggest concern.
My biggest concern is why would I want to take the shot with no rebounds underneath? Least if you're gonna take that shot, Okay.
Let your people get set right.
Let them get set and let them be able to take that shot.
That's what I would like that.
That's what I would like to see more off.
I don't want, You know, I understand you're a living. Die with the three.
I get it because that's what the n b a goes.
I just think we could, um or working the ball inside.
Uh, free throw is 80% which was good at 69% for Atlanta.
That's probably where they lost this game.
Rebounds pretty even.
49 to 45 Assists. 22.
Boat teams turn the ball over more than they should have.
The biggest deal.
11 blocks for the Sixers as the three for Atlanta.
Listen, the Sixers are gonna win games that offensively.
And I'm telling you right now, there are length on defense is gonna be a problem for opposing offenses.
You've seen it tonight? Yes.
Trey Young was shooting Iraq.
Yes, early they were.
They were hit him hard, but at the end, they kind of wore them down a little bit.
And they covered those interior passing lanes, which is huge.
You seen it? Can completely with, um I've read his comments by Scott Sucks.
Like Scott doesn't suck.
He doesn't suck, You know that? Listen, he you know, he does exactly what it's supposed to them.
Okay, He's an enforcer on his team.
Okay, that's exactly what he wants to D'oh! Okay, And that's what he's going to do.
I mean, tonight, he should have got kicked out.
I really think that call was ridiculous.
Okay, That's like you're saying the part of me for here for a second, people.
I'm trying to Ah, I am trying to get this to go live. Hold on.
Ah, things work.
It would be beautiful, right? But now, listen.
Like Scott doesn't suck.
My Scott has a role on this team, okay? And he's gonna He's gonna do exactly what he's supposed to, though.
Okay, that's to get boards.
It's hit a couple threes that to be a six or seven men on this team.
Okay, that's exactly what Mike Scott is supposed to.
D'oh! And that's what he is doing.
Okay, so I have no problem with Mike Scott on this team.
I'm not sure why you think you sucks, but I don't really think he does.
Why do you think he sucks so bad? Uh, let's say I finally got the shared.
We are good people. We are good.
All right, Now we could talk again.
Uh, listen again, Let's break down the scheme a little bit, okay? I want to talk about bam real fast.
Okay? I told about the length of the defense, okay.
About Barnes is better than him.
Matt Barnes, You went mad borns.
I'm not about parties, fan. Sorry.
I'll take Mike's got any data week? Uh, the length of Thigh Bowl and J rich, I think are you know, something that we need to focus on something other team's gonna focus on.
It's something that is going to cause havoc for those.
Seems you've seen it. Ben Simmons.
Listen, let me talk about Ben for a second.
Ben Simmons had somebody to say He just has been summoned for M v. P.
Listen, I'm gonna say something about Ben.
He's he's working on a shot, which I love, I d'oh! And when I would I see out of Ben is almost what I see out of LeBron.
Now, I am not saying Ben Simmons is LeBron James, But what I'm saying is he is He is so physical.
He over powers his defender and he can get to the basket with ease.
He could back him down.
Listen, I know that he could go coast to coast, but what I do, though, what I did find out tonight and to get back anybody down and get all the way down into the place just like LeBron does on tell you what if he could perfect that little jump hook or that mole faded.
He's trying to dio the sky's the limit for Ben Simmons.
And I'll tell you what between him and Joel Ah, I see what this team is set for.
For the next 5 to 6 years, you could be my sky.
Listen, I don't know if you could be Mike, Stop! Ah, listen, Carlo Quinn.
I wrote a couple things down all over the place, right? Call Quinn sick.
You know, here's a guy I've been around 89 years.
I still rather have him. That Amir Johnson.
The only thing I would say is, dude, if you're underneath the basket, no dribble.
Put it right up, please.
Ah, Tell them the three point shop.
I talked about the Hawks playing faster than the Sixers in the first half.
I think they played a lot faster to the ball, on offense and on defense, and I think that's what happened.
I think the second half adjustment was let's lock him down.
They actually start to make it a little more headway in the second quarter day.
They closed that gap a little bit, and it was it was a close game from there.
Uh, How about Vince Carter? Vince Carter, 42 years old, 22 seasons.
OK of insanity, Right of insanity is still play.
Listen, kudos, events, because I'll tell you what.
Most guys would have hung up.
You talked about a bumble you told about earlier love for the game.
That's love for the game of insanity.
Okay, he could still play.
Could still get up.
Ah, if you go, you two of insanity, you YouTube the Atlanta Hawks practices or shoot around.
He's still Duncan like he was back in Toronto.
I mean, this guy's unbelievable.
He's He's older than me on like, a couple of years, but if I try to do that, I'd probably break my neck.
I have no idea how he's doing about kudos to him.
Trailing had 13 points in the first quarter.
We talked about Trey. Little bit.
Trying is a fantastic player.
Ah, the sixties really had no answer for him, except they start to buckle down a little bit towards the end, which was something that you know between Josh Richardson and Matisse.
Sybil were able to d'oh to slow him down.
Ah, how about Josh Harris And when you see Josh Howard's interview with Mrs Winters, I think Josh, our Josh Harris had little wants a drink on about you.
But he ah, Josh hires looked like he he had a couple more ****tails than everybody else because they went away from him real face.
It wasn't his base.
The aye aye interview before.
But it was definitely Ah, something that was a little entertaining.
Uh, Jo Ellan be Listen, how much can you say? How much can you not say about you? L and B.
Okay, this guy under if he could just stay underneath the basket, you know, they're even calling travels on him that actually aren't travels.
But they're calling him because they can't tell when he keeps his pivot foot or not.
Because he's so long.
What are the Lakers overrated? You know, I don't know.
I mean, you know, I still want to see what Anthony Davis says.
I still want to see what he does.
I still want to see, you know, obviously you have to respect LeBron.
I don't like LeBron.
Okay, but I have to see what Anthony Davis can do throughout a full year.
I want to see what that team can actually do with those two guys at the helm.
I think it should be interesting.
Um, I told him about the Mike Scott thing, which I think was ridiculous.
Joelle sinking is two free throws at the end.
I mean, listen, this guy, okay? This is like, you know when back in the day when you had a dominant center in shack who was taking over the game, You know, obviously they played hack a Shaq all the time because I knew if you get into the line, he was gonna miss his free throws.
Joelle is like a 70 to 80% free throw shooter, which is unbelievable to make. Okay.
And he goes in there calm, cool, collected and just drops him down with not issue at all.
What? Everybody was facing everything.
Uh, Ben Simmons, 13.
6 for 11 6 board, six assists.
Saul came all the way around.
There was there was a couple things that stood out to me.
In this game, I'm still trying to figure out the love infest the love fest with Brett Brown, and four can court Maas for can court mas should not be on the floor.
Six minutes left in the game you need a defensive stop you have for can cork.
Ma's out on the court.
I understand. Shake Milton. I hope he's okay.
It looks like a knee hyper extension.
And I understand Like Sky.
I'd rather have James Ennis in there, then Cork mas.
I really don't know why.
Quirk Maas is in the game.
I really don't know that I'm seeing away too much of Frankie Way Two months.
I thought it was interesting that they actually signed him to that deal.
OK, But I'm saying way too much of cork mas.
He's He's a liability from the defense's said from the defense of stands out there offensively, he really to me cause you nothing.
He really doesn't give you anything.
It's like pacing like four cane for four can fork on whatever the hell his name is.
He's like the kid who gets picked last in the pickup game at the park.
Okay, it's a guy who's left court.
Give me court. Miles will throw on a team.
Okay? It's like Hey, cork mine's just get Just get open somewhere.
You know, he's not gonna drive is going to stay in the three point line.
He doesn't want me.
He wants to avoid contact at all costs.
He's not gonna play good defense, okay? And just hope that every now and then he hits an open shot and spacing.
Why Frankie's air? But Frankie's not there to play a defense of steps.
Stallworth at six minutes left in the game.
That's neck and neck.
He shouldn't have been in there.
Um, I'm curious.
See why breath around had him in there at that point.
Like I said, have a guy like James of this.
How about Trey Burke? This Trey Burke ever gonna get any play? People I don't understand.
Why does he have something against Trey Burke? Okay.
Why isn't Trey Burke the guy coming in instead of court minds? Okay, you can You can mess around your rotations a little bit.
So where you still have J words and they're running.
Maybe even the two at that point.
So you could put trade the one I mean, I don't understand why he's not getting off the bench.
It doesn't make any sense to me.
It really doesn't.
I'm gonna flip the screen.
Where? Real fast.
Right here. But I want to check something.
Harris, Listen. One for nine for three point landing.
Ah, what I have to say about the Baez.
Listen, everybody knows.
I said last year that Tobias Harris was a little soft.
Ah, I mentioned that.
I thought that maybe, you know, he was able to be what winning signed this deal that he could turn into, like a Bradley Beal who played that's of John Wall for X amount of years and actually elevated his game once he signed that big money deal.
Okay, but what I've seen tonight is I still see the hesitation from Tobias.
I don't know what that is.
Listen to vice what I need to buy us to do.
I need to buy to take the energy that Ben has any authority that Ben has and wants to either drive the lane when he has the bull post.
A guy off to get a little 15 foot jumper, whatever you need to do but be decisive, stop being indecisive because that's what's making us turn the ball over and that's making you get a shot.
That's really not your in your wheelhouse.
You could get your own shot, You great your own shot if you're able to isolate and you're able to make the right move.
But Tobias just didn't do it again.
You're getting paid over $180 million right? That's what you're guaranteed.
And I understand it's a market.
And listen, I was off.
All four signed, Tobias.
I'm all going it.
But when you come into this game, you play 38 minutes, you have 13 points.
You shot 31% for the fuel.
5 16 I think you should want for nine for three, especially late in the game.
We need more than that. I'm sorry.
We definitely need more than that.
And I'm telling you right now, the biggest fear I have and they said it on, you know, on a on a on a telecast, they said, Brent Brown said, The guy we go too late in games.
Gonna be Joel on B.
Listen, I get everything runs through Joe.
Well, it does, but you still need somebody get making outside shots and see Jo Jo at the end trying to toss up that three.
I want to bang my head up against the wall.
That's not what I want to see.
Going through Joe. Joe.
I don't want to see that when I want to see if you want to give it, tell me you're to give it down on the block.
I'm good with that.
Okay? But Tobias Harris needs to be.
The guy taken that shot and he didn't do it again.
And that concerns me.
12 for 1936 points, 13 boards, five assists, three steals, three steals from your big man.
Can he get off high five? Can you get a pound? Can he gets? I mean, this guy you seen tonight what we all been waiting for, right? How is Joel gonna respond down the stretch? How is it conditioning? Going to trains like to the end of the game? Because last year that was a big question, right? The big question was is Joe well gonna be able to handle the pressure in the games? Is he going to be able to basically lay off the cheeseburgers? Enough? Lay off the Chick fil A in order to get coast to coast down the court and be able to finish games, Right? This is what we asked for.
And guess what? It happened tonight.
He showed his conditioning chains.
He showed the work he put in in the off season and he was able to finish this game.
You didn't see a winded.
Listen, I'll know about you, but I was looking at little things and I didn't see the perspiration beating off his head like I seen last year.
Last year, my man was winded.
This year, he was one of the first people back and forth.
Listen, the box outplayed the end the tray, young miss.
And listen. All respect to try Young.
You didn't try to miss that on your own.
That I'll tell you what, if you highly, if you calculate that missed free throw the way it went in and out of the rim.
I'll tell you what, your minds will just knock over my job because you may be the smartest man in the world because there's no way that happened.
Okay? He was a swimming pool, but agree not. Get right.
It's just make love and checks in.
Thanks for joining.
I mean, last year, right? I mean, you see the way, How many times he's bent over right pointers pulling out his jersey trunks? You know, you could see he was huffing and puffing.
And that wasn't from this sickness that he had.
Okay, that was from the bay conditioning.
That was from Hey, let me get four chicken sandwiches and three milkshakes, right? You just blew that yet? Exactly.
So I was thinking, you see one of those appointed head, right? Point that.
You know, I'd give more respective.
You didn't do that because we know you were trying to make that shot.
Why wouldn't you try to make that shop? I mean, you're 80% free throw shooter.
Of course you're gonna try to do that.
I mean, you know, you and you found you go one for one.
You know, you walk the floor, we all know what you're supposed to do.
So But listen, one thing about Trey Young, I'm excited.
Listen, I was excited coming in the n b A this year.
May I appreciate that.
Glad to see you lot again. I appreciate that, man.
Listen, everybody checking in.
I appreciate it.
I'm trying to do this is what responsible? You know, we talked about this us, us A.
P I and I kind of just took the gavel, so to speak, in just around with it because ah, that this is my forte, man.
This is my home.
And and I and I love talking with everybody.
I love the interaction, But coming into the n b A.
This year, you know, there were certain players I want to see.
Trey Young was one of them.
Okay, I want to see Lucas.
I want to see prison. Guess I want to see.
Listen, I want to see CP three.
I still want us.
I can't wait till Paul George comes back.
We see that Kawai and PG 13 connection.
I want to see Russell Westbrook.
Listen, the West is going to be ridiculous.
But even the East Have you seen Kyrie Irving this year so far? Carrie, I mean dropping 50.
He has everybody just shook.
Listen, there's a reason Kyrie Irving is the truth man.
And I'll tell you what? He is electrical once Kevin Durant comes back in Brooklyn, I'll tell you what, man.
That's six here's gonna have some competition.
You know, I can't wait till all the depot gets back.
I think the Pacers can be really strong.
And listen, I love the Greek freak I d'oh, but I just don't think they have enough around him.
I don't know why everybody loves Milwaukee so much.
I don't think Chris Middleton is that good.
And my role and my role is everybody's in love with Chris Middleton.
Every time I watch him, he doesn't just doesn't do it for me.
I don't know what it is.
I watch him missing shots.
I want to make a bad place.
You know, I just I don't see it.
Carrie, leave him.
Listen, Cary leaving words.
I don't think so.
You know, right now, obviously. Quite.
Clay Thompson not gonna play this year. We talk.
See, we talked about this last year, right? We knew this was gonna be a changing of the card, so to speak, for the Golden State Warriors.
I know they're in new arena, right? We understand that.
You know that they've been basically the gold standard.
The New England Patriots of the N B A for for so long.
But you seen Steve Curry said, Listen, this happens.
Every team goes to this right every now.
I'm actually not from Boston.
Um, from Philly.
Don't Don't tell me I have a Boston accent, please, because that's gonna hurt my feelings.
Uh, but no, seriously, I mean, you see what happens when you don't have that extra shooter out there, right? The endless and D'Angelo Russell, he's not the answer.
If you think the Enzo Russell was the answer for that team Golden State, you're sadly mistaken.
Ah, I'm not Indians or D'Angelo Russell fan.
I'm really not, but I think that team they rest Clay Thompson.
Ah, um, from where is easily help me out is that I I'm a very I failed geography in a high school, so I'm not afraid.
I'm not ashamed to say that South Carolina Oh, wow, you're checking in from South Carolina.
That's not been in South Carolina wants.
And when I went out there, I was probably a teenager, and I'll never forget it.
We were flew into the airport on a big Boeing plane.
And then they got me on this little playing that sat about 10 people.
I was scared to death, man, I think was in the wind.
It was rocking back and forth outside were scary.
But the bugs and it's actually what city.
I'm not sure I'm really not.
All I remember is I went with my best friend.
Is a family out there and the bugs? I remember the bugs out there were unbelievable.
We were setting off fireworks and, like a farmland and I had so many bites all over me was insane.
I'm never forget about that plane ride. That was scary.
Ah, but 6 10 what? 6 10 Help me out.
They're missing key pieces from last year.
It's It's just make love in, what, six times? It's all about the radio.
It sucks with the bugs down here.
Yeah, absolutely, man, I'm telling you, you're absolutely right.
Mr. Key pieces for last year.
Delko, check in.
Okay. Delaware County. I I like that now.
I'm on Northeast Philly.
Grew up in Northeast Philly, born and bred, coming from Fox County right now.
Ah, but I know, I know a lot of people in Delko.
Thanks for checking in it. It's just big loving.
I love the conversation.
What do you think? What you guys looking for? What do you think with the six or seen? Obviously, they're gonna lose.
Are you? Are you? What are your concerns? What? What? You're concerned about my birthday? Coming up. I have a birthday.
Bumble Bee. Tuna.
How old are you gonna be? You You're gonna throw your age out.
They're gonna help us out.
Um, what do you guys that that are involved in this discussion right now? I got some people on Twitter, so people on Facebook 15 are my main.
Listen, I remember when I was 15.
Yeah, I have a 15 year old son, just so you know.
Ah, so it's like me, you talking.
It's like me talking to my son right now.
But that's cool, man.
Thanks for checking in for real.
Um, listen, you know, go back to its make love in the rinse A key pieces from last year.
We're talking about the Golden State Warriors, right? Ah, yeah. Absolutely.
They can always improve but not overall. Not babe.
And that's my thing.
I still think we're gonna have to look for a shooter.
I still don't think Shake, I think maybe could be that guy.
I thought Zaire Smith was gonna hopefully be that guy and step into that role this year.
But seeing that looks like he's not gonna play this year.
Kind of disappointment.
I Listen, I know people are gonna say it's easy to second gas it, but you know, McKell Bridges looks pretty good, doesn't he? McKell Bridges has stepped in and played right away, and I know it was a freak injury for Zaire, but again, it's another draft pick we have to wait for, right? It's another guy that could be helping us on the bench, and that's the only thing I don't like.
I still think that Trey Burke give him some instant offense and I, for some reason I don't know he's in a doghouse, you know? I mean, even Net.
So got time in Detroit before Trey Burke.
What's it been like? I thought, Yeah, B two, man.
When they left J.
I completely thought that you know his ire.
Smith was going to be ableto the lesson that below.
Ah, but it just didn't happen. It really didn't.
Um, how about man fifth seed in the playoffs? Listen, bro, if the if the Sixers aren't a number one seed or maybe two, but if they're not the one or two seed, it's a failure to make it.
Really Is there something wrong? They have to suffer.
I'm gonna knock on my desk right here, not going well, because they're gonna have to suffer a major injury for me, For my opinion, for that toe happen.
This team is just too talented and too deep, especially in the Eastern Conference, to be able not listen, they went up against probably their best competition it one of the best competitors, which is Boston, who's probably gonna be the four seat I still think is gonna be Philly Milwaukee, and then the three seed what's it could go either way, but I still think Boston's a foresee.
Okay, I still think Indiana's a three seat at Cobo three and four.
I'm not sure, but you see what they did against Boston.
It was even her best game.
Boston has nothing.
They lost Rose ear.
Okay? They lost Kyrie Irving and Campbell.
Walker is too small for that team.
And you see, when we play that, okay, even know Trey Young, expose us a little bit.
I'll tell you what.
Campbell Walker looked lost against our bigger, big guys.
We will have our big right.
I see 10 games to get better.
Yeah, you're at.
Listen, I completely growing it.
I think 55 56 wins to me is gonna be this team, and you're seeing it right now.
They're still getting things together, right? The last year we lost this game, right? Last year, this was a game we lose this year.
Okay, What's to me is tremendous.
Uh, Katie leaving in that sentence.
You're I don't know about that.
I don't because I think Brooklyn.
They have a system out there, and I think that he went out there for a reason.
I think I'll be all right.
I really, really do.
Listen, I'm just I'm just excited about all the young talent that's being infused into the MBA.
Okay? I'm an old school guy.
Listen, you see the jerseys behind me, right? I grew up in a 90 era, right? I grew up in a Jordan rules there.
I grew up with the New York Knick teams that Detroit Piston teams and the Boston teams and the Trail Blazers when they were led by Clyde Drexler.
And you know, you know Tim Duncan and David Robinson.
And the only reason why Rudy, Tommy, John Evans and the Houston Rockets 12 back to back championships because Michael Jordan decided I'm gonna retire and go play for the White Sox and go live out along ah, childhood dream and try to play baseball.
Okay? And then he came back and won three championships.
Okay, so it ended today when somebody says that, you know, I'm not gonna get into this, right, because it's gonna be another show.
Okay, But when somebody and I bet you bubble tune is gonna tell me the same thing right here about LeBron okay.
When you tell me LeBron are Michael Michael Jordan all day long.
I respect LeBron.
You know, he is a tremendous player.
Okay, But when we're talking about N b a champions and N b A greats if you put them up against that.
Or was it his gambling? Listen, his gambling, unfortunately, probably had his father killed.
Okay, I think James Jordan, if you read that story, and you go inside that it sounds like, you know, James Jordan was probably murdered.
Ah, because off that and I think Michael had some of that guilt and he wore that on a sleeve a little bit.
I think it was wasn't only his dream to play baseball.
I think it was his dad's dream.
So listen, I studied Michael Jordan, Michael Jordan Waas, my LeBron James.
Right? So for the younger generation, who's all about LeBron on a Michael Jordan? To me, that was he was my LeBron back then and and it's hard.
I would even he's jersey behind me.
But I would even put Kobe.
I had LeBron I would where the mea found out about the fixing was going on.
You know what? That you know what? Make love.
And I'll tell you what.
That's a great point.
I never even thought about that.
Never even thought about that.
You're right, Because listen, Michael Jordan is as competitive as they come.
You just use here.
Charles Barkley, talk about the gambling stories and and how much money he know he would let let it ride on over Let wheel or or the poker table.
Or, you know, or blackjack.
I mean, this guy, obviously, he may Aton of money.
I mean, do you remember? And this is before the MBA had these huge contracts.
I think he signed a one year, $35 million deal when they were at, you know, at the united Center under Ah, Jerry, I forget the guy's last saying, Jerry Reinsdorf.
Who was the longtime general manager of the Chicago Bulls? Okay.
Had all the championships.
But you know what? That McLovin, That's great.
Never even thought about that.
But listen, I still have to go, Michael **** Michael.
I go, Kobe, and then I'll give you LeBron okay.
And that's before we're even talking about back when we're talking about guys like Oscar Robinson and Wilt Chamberlain.
Okay, because the 30 always who eyes, I think they have to be in the error by themselves at a reason why I say that eyes that my stream is that your stream Mugsy.
Donatella Mugsy Make loving.
Is it your street or my stream? What do you think? I'm pretty? My stream looks pretty good right here.
Ah, I just want to make sure that it's not mine.
Ah, but listen, you know, again two different errors to me.
You know, you go back and you keep that air of the same time.
This is so Yeah.
You know what? Basically, I make loving if you don't you have your own wife.
I sometimes, you know, because they're so many people.
That SportsCastr thing is great.
You know that the owner Nick does a great job by, you know, putting this all together, But there's a ton of people streaming Tana people.
Ah, so if your own wife, I it's gonna be tough.
Ah, you know, you got to get the cat the CAC able if you want this to stream correctly.
But I appreciate you joining in and ah, stick with you as long as you want.
Probably about five more minutes here with 33 minutes like this that I could talk all night long, I really could.
Ah, but you talk about errors again.
Oscar Robinson you know, A You know, it's hard to even have a three point line back then, right? So it's really hard to say Michael Jordan would have been the best in that area.
I think you still have to go to Arizona, and you can't leave out Shaquille O'Neal in that conversation.
Securing it was probably the best big man ever played a game off, figuring out all good.
But my thing is, I love dwell on because Dream was my favorite player.
Ah, KEEM right, the dream shake.
You know, every know.
It's funny about Hakeem, you know, for some reason that Keen gets left out of the conversation all the time.
We always go shack to Duncan when we're talking about big guys, right, But nobody ever brings up a large one.
And again, he's another guy who's getting hidden in the Jordan era.
If you think about all the players that got hidden in the Jordan era, you're a colleague. Patrick Ewing.
Patrick Ewing would probably have three rings if it wasn't for Michael Jordan, right? Think about that every single year.
Every and they had a great team.
Remember how tough that team waas with John Starts and Charles Smith, Anthony Mason Egg, Xavier McDaniel, Patrick Ewing.
I mean, the list goes on and on and on.
I mean, let me tell you something.
If it wasn't for Jordan, they went MBA championship.
How about on the flip side? Right? The Seattle SuperSonics.
Okay, they had that ridiculous here with Shawn Camp.
And guess what? That left shrimp.
They couldn't win, right? They could win, because why facing Jordan? And let's not mistake.
Let's not leave out Karl Malone and John Stockton.
How many championships will car Malone have? If it wasn't for Michael Jordan, So thinking about all the guys that we never bring up back in the day, I mean, yes, their names get brought up, but not to the same stature as other players.
It's all because Michael Jordan was that great, and that's why I think he's better than LeBron and that because when we talk about this error of N B A basketball and we talk about LeBron is being, you know, the number one player in the world.
The thing is we also know overshadow other players.
You still have got sick stuff carrying Kevin Durant and these guys that that's still get talked about.
When Jordan was on top, everybody else, they got hidden.
Shaun Livingston, My man.
Listen, I'll tell you what.
Shaun Livingston could have been a baller if he didn't have those double knee surgeries.
Right again, I think.
Compare Maur Thio. Malone. Yeah.
You know what? You're with the toughness, right? Obviously, you know, LeBron was a better player than Karl Malone, but I can't car.
Malone's another guy that doesn't get enough credit.
I mean, you think about that mold of MBA player, they wouldn't be able to play today, right? Like a guy like Charles Barkley.
Ah, guy that Karl Malone Because it was more of a low post game on the block on a game.
Okay, That's why I remember that 92 team, You know, I don't know how many 92.
Yeah, How many older people my age are watching right now, But in 92 when the Trail Blazers, what do you think about that team? Right? Clyde Drexler.
Kevin Duck Worth a Buck Williams.
You take those five players right there, Duck Worth, Cursi.
Okay, there, Buck Williams.
Okay, Terry Porter and Claude that Leo. Clyde Drexler.
I'll tell you what.
Guess what? Yeah, they were too fast guards, but the beer guys down low, You couldn't play nowadays.
Just bigger rebound.
Ah, you know, driving such a higher. Absolutely.
I mean, it's just such a completely different game.
If you're if you're taking credit.
Mugsy, don't Muggsy Bogues.
It's all about Mugsy boats.
The old Charlotte Hornets.
Listen, Mugsy will be forever linked of being him and spoil.
Web is being one of the smallest players every MBA.
But that's it Mugsy again.
I mean, he was what He was, right.
I mean, he had a nice n b a career, not taking nothing away from Mugsy.
But, I mean, we're talking about guys that LeBron James and Michael Jordan doesn't mean he doesn't hold your jockstrap.
And you know, no disrespect that the Mugsy, but come on, he was even enter that conversation.
Ah, I was early.
Let me tell you something.
Ah, Alonzo Mourning. Wow.
I mean, he was He was in that he was in that era, right? He was in that Larry Johnson error.
Whether you talk about for Charlotte or for the heat.
He's another guy who doesn't get a lot of credit.
Who? It was another spectacular big man.
I mean, Yao Ming, think about you.
Helming was unbelievable.
I mean, if he doesn't have planter fasciitis, OK? And he doesnt have foot problems.
I mean, the sky would be the limit for Yao Ming.
I mean, we could talk about big guys all day long, right? I mean, we could go back and back and back, and we even talk about guys that were kind of like a hybrid like you speak of.
OK, guys, you know that also weren't really that good.
Okay, we're role players.
Listen, when? When the 90 Bulls were in session, think about who? Their centers.
Where, who their big guys were.
Bill Cartwright, Bill Wennington.
These aren't household names, okay? They were able to get it done.
F why? I'm like the usually watch the p.
R. Veres Valero.
Mike Valero, right? Is that you, Mike? I appreciate you checking in, if that's you.
I know we talked about getting a p i thing going, and I'm still trying to get that going.
Uh, you know, I'm trying to figure out how to split the screen.
That was the biggest thing when we went live.
Me and Mia Morte Rome, Eller.
We were trying to get a live and trying to put the screens.
I can't tell you that.
Uh, you know, we are working on it, okay? Shawn has been locked down with the gambler right now for Fox Sports. A gambler.
You know, I'm doing some things of Fox sports. Gambler.
Adrian's doing some things.
We're all trying.
We're trying to do things, but I'll be honest with you.
I'm Kana trying to hold the P I thing together, so we will be back full storm.
Okay? But I'm just trying to figure out how I can involve everybody.
Uh, but I will start to go live once a week for P I.
But like my man, you're always there.
I appreciate it.
Thanks for checking in.
Um, Mugsy is way better than all those guys.
Ah, listen, man.
Mugsy, you're 15 bro.
I appreciate it.
You gonna have awesome birthday on Wednesday, but Muggsy Bogues isn't even this conversation.
But I appreciate the logic, man.
I d'oh, I appreciate you going back and bring it out.
Mosey I d'oh! Let let's you know.
Let's have a little fun, Hero face.
I want to go about five more minutes.
Could you talk about money? But that's all the guards, right? You told the guards in that era besides Michael Jordan, right? Guys like Mark Price.
Kevin Johnson having Johnson? Probably.
KJ probably was one of the best guards in that era that nobody talked about between him and Gary paid in the glove.
Okay, let me tell you something.
That Phoenix Suns team with K J.
When When barkley went over there.
That the Paul Westfall error.
Okay, you saw Chambers on a team.
You still had thunder. Dan Marley.
You have Rex Chapman trying trying to think who else you had on that team? Richard, do Ms. Okay.
Anybody were Richard do, miss.
I mean, that that team was stacked out there, man.
Kevin can destroy angles. Yeah. Yeah.
See, you know about Cade a bumble that my man C k j was on another level.
The problem caging is never say healthy.
Ah, that was one of the biggest things with Kevin Johnson.
Ah, but it's cold with John Stockton, obviously, you know, a different kind of guard, right? A different kind of garbage on stock.
Ah, we talked about Ty Reporter, another guy.
Listen, even let's wait. Wait.
Yeah, that's, like, the next era next that we'll talk about, uh, he's probably 2000 error.
Which way, Wade? Unbelievable.
But if you talk about the nineties, listen, Was there I know is ah, to guard or a three by the IRS, where I saw about Mike Texan.
I was just going to say Vernon Maxwell, Okay? Because because I was thinking Vernon because of the Houston teams.
But Sam Cassell, same castle.
Wow, He was a predator, dude.
Cassell was a killer on the court.
Whether you're talking Milwaukee, whether you're talking Houston.
I have nightmares.
The same could sell.
Just drop in, threes. Down.
That 20 foot jumper just killed us Between him and Tyrone Hill.
Probably the ugliest mug in the n b a of all time.
But say what? The man cub all and Penny Penny Hardaway.
Every time I think I'm planning, I think of blue chips.
Ah, but Bromell about I love it.
I love it. I hope you, you know, keep followed.
He shows me you're adding on to this conversation.
The comments are fantastic.
I'm glad every second, and it's wonderful.
Uh, I don't think anyone knew very about burning Maxwell.
That's exactly Vernon.
And that's the thing about Vernon.
Okay? He was He was a hothead, right? He was a guy who, you know, he was a wild child. He was a wild card.
He'd go off at any second.
But I'll tell you what, between his defense, okay? And you know his offensive mindset.
I'll tell you what.
Maybe he was also great teams, if you think about it.
And that team, the Houston team, he was a key cog and then won that championship.
And I'm trying to think like Kenny Smith was on that right? You, Kenny Smith, You have to sell in a Houston team.
You have Vernon Maxwell obviously had a lot a law.
Obviously, you had Ah ah, Akeem Olajuwon.
I'm trying to think of how well she had on that seem like who else was on that team.
I can't think Ah, my players to be.
Listen, that's awesome playing, man.
Listen, I tell you What? Keep grinding.
I'll tell you, man, you have no idea this this crazy.
And I'm only at the bottom of this business pro.
But this business is absolutely crazy.
But I know a couple of friends of mine that are statisticians and actually do some announcing they love it.
Ah, so stick with a man asked.
Just study up so I could tell you started I'll be able to freebase, right? What I mean by that is, if you're able to do a show.
Listen, I'm a piece of paper in front of you, right? It has about 10 notes on it.
Okay? And it's all six years notes from the pre game.
I got TV monitor in front of me right here.
It's got the Sixers outsiders on right now.
But I'll tell you what, When we're talking about all this end stuff, I don't listen, I have no notes, Okay? This is just be free base, and this is what I do.
And if you plan to be a sports announcer, always read as much as you can study as much, you can serve your in that booth and something comes up.
You get papa stat, you could pop a player.
You talk about error.
That's what you want to.
D'oh! How it is to try to get chapel up.
Big shot Rob was Yes.
I mean, another killer from that era, right? Whether it was San Antonio, whether it was Houston, whether it was L.
A, that dude was always on a championship team.
I'll tell you what, man.
We could solve Claire's all night long.
Really could, uh, be as our big shot, Rob.
Uh, I listen big shop up.
Tell you what, man.
You go back and look at MBA highlights.
Is there a series in the nineties? That big shot Bob wasn't dreaming a shot.
Seriously, what, like four minutes left in the fourth quarter? I mean, it is absolutely insane.
That guy made a living off of that.
And I'll tell you what, how we talked.
We went back and told about Michael Jordan.
Basically, you know, hanging coffin teams and players, you know, not being able to get them rings.
How about the Indiana T? How about Reggie Miller, Randy Miller? But the ultimate sniper in Indiana? Those teams he had out there your talk of Reggie, You're talking Dale Davis, Antonio Davis, Jermaine O'Neal, Rik Smits that list shrimp.
I mean, I'll tell you what, Travis Best.
That team was stacked and they couldn't win the big one.
Why? Because I'm Michael Jordan.
I mean, we all know the infamous choking signal, right, This choking sign, Reggie Miller and Spike Lee in Madison Square Garden.
We'll never forget it, but go Google.
Listen, are all youngsters out there? You Google Reggie Miller, you to Reggie Miller, He's And for my money, okay, It's either Reggie or ah, wait behind me right there. Ray Allen.
Either way, one of those best best shooters of all time born on Ah, lot of great teams blocked by them. Absolutely.
Ah, but listen, I'm with wine is down 46 minutes, man.
Usually like hand.
Half hour is kind of like the, you know, the cutting edge that I've been able to do MBA post games.
Seems like the Eagles and football games go about an hour.
Ah, but I want to start doing this more.
Ah, not just for one sport.
Maybe for all of you know, I want to do a filly segment.
Major League Baseball will recap the world Siris.
We'll talk about the new hires.
We'll look at guys like Gary Cole.

Ah, we'll talk about NFL trade deadline tomorrow, right tomorrow.
So depending on what we do will be able to talk to trade Eleanor also.
Why people he pats, They want to see other teams not being blocked.
You know, when you're great, you get hated, all right, because it's the same thing over and over again.
But this is the way I look at it.
And like I've said this before, I feel blessed.
I feel lucky that I'm able to live in an error which so much greatness, right? Because, oh, man b Bumble just brought mixed Richman.
Unbelievable pool Mitch Richmond of such an underrated MBA superstar.
Nobody talks about, but getting back to this I feel blessed because I think about all the people growing up that didn't get the witness Michael Jordan, right.
And for all the people that say, there's actually three.
Jordan's in this world and we talk about Michael Jordan.
LeBron James, Kobe Bryant.
I was able to witness all three of them and watch them alive.
Okay, Not everybody can say that, right? Not everybody can say that.
And when we talk about quarterbacks and the Patriots to be able for myself, the watch games with Joe Montana, Joe Marino I mean Joe Montana, Dan Marino, John Elway, Steve Young and then Peyton Manning.
