You don't really just full of those, Like always find its album.
We're talking about how LeBron James LeBron James in high school.
Yeah, I saw LeBron as a high schooler.
Jordon and I went pretty impressive.
I knew that way.
Wait, wait, wait.
I read the book, but I know it from watching you. Wait.
Did something on the way for 30 called way with greatest sport stock ever.
Basically, you should You should get that out sooner rather than later.
What? We're here.
I want them to make the NFL draft like five nights long because a week I don't care.
I just want something on the TV.
That's not Bravo.
We're live and online streaming.
Matt Brooks is in the house.
Keith McPherson here, Michael Sticky ****ey That smells, um, hollow that people say, How high has it go? What's good? What's good? Everybody, Um, already working.
So after heated debate, we decided on what the 2003 N b A Finals Mets at Spurs Game one we are going to try to do is maybe as much of this syriza's possible.
I don't know that's undecided, but something like that we're gonna do.
This isn't the last of the Spurs.
Is that maybe watch each game like each week.
We'll be one game of this six game series, but knowing us, it'll it'll end.
Like after Game two.
It will be like, Yeah, this is boring.
Let's talk about, you know, Pokemon or something so beautiful.
Could be over after game one, depending on how this goes.
We'll see you're playing it by ear.
You know, um, just getting a little These do at least get begin to, like, at the very least, Yeah, absolutely.
Um what was the first game that that's one was game two, right? Um, I do.
I do believe we won Game two.
After you is, Let's just get started, you know? No, no, No need to hesitate, right? Just get a go, baby. Let's go.
Um, everyone will be ready to enjoy this beautiful 360 p 2003 vision.
Of course, we're gonna stall out because that's how we roll.
Oh, Julius, just out there Living.
What? Seeing you? Look, that's a tie into right now.
I mean, I just had where you sit I'm just saying we just had Dr J.
Black Panther Night in Brooklyn and I guess they honored him in San Antonio before Game one of the Finals in 2003.
And if I watched that as a younger person, I forgot absolute A.
Be a rivalry between the two.
You could buy a Nets Spurs 2003 finals hand on collectors dot com for 20 bucks anybody wants in right now, don't let me know.
What's that? A plug? Yeah, this stream sponsored by collectors dot com.
It's not his eBay.
That is its tagline.
I swear to God, I just tested the stupid thing.
And now and that was scuffed to help.
Hang on, we're gonna get Let's go.
What are you doing? Does keep the stream of life? Um, is it we're doing all right.
Tuesday, I I really realized today that I've been quarantined for two weeks and that it was Tuesday, March 10th where we had to cancel one of our events.
So I worked for John Boy Media and we just cover baseball, basketball, football, sports, just overall podcasts, video stuff like that, and we had ah launch party scheduled for the 14th.
And when I came into work on Tuesday, March 10 we had the conversations about Maybe it's not a good idea for us to be in a bar with strangers shaking hands, taking pictures, breathing in each other's air.
Now this is before the MBA obviously shut down.
This is before, um, anybody really was taking it serious.
I think that that week going into, um, with 10th.
It was two weeks ago.
Today was when I was like, Wait, this is dead serious When I talked to the owner of the bar and he said, We have to cancel.
There is no you know, debate or talk about it like it's not gonna happen this Saturday.
It's getting bad, and I'm like, all right, And I stayed late that night.
We did a podcast, and I got on the subway from the Bronx, down the Port Authority, and I remember stepping on the subway car there like like eight o'clock, 8 30 it was like no one on the subway, just like maybe three people in the whole car.
And I'm like, it's kind of odd, like there's a pretty popular stop.
Yankee stadium going downtown.
I'm like, there's nobody on this train.
Then I get in the Port Authority and I come up the steps and it's wide open like you could run through Port Authority and you can't run through port authorities on the most crowded places in the city.
It's where everyone's coming in and coming out.
And that's when I like.
I didn't I didn't look back after that.
I got on the bus and I tweeted something else.
Like, uh, Yo, it's time to get out of New York and stat in New York is getting ****ky out here like the subway is quiet.
Port Authority is too quiet.
This is This is all a sign that I need to know to stay home and not come back into the city.
People are starting to self quarantine.
Been impotent for two weeks ever gone by.
And I've been in my house Do room.
This changed everyone.
So glad you're here with us now.
Every great man.
Thank God you guys had this idea.
I think if we look back to the messages, it was probably under 11 right? When I hit a Brian and I was like that idea just became so much better.
Now we'll all be okay.
It's not span looking at like now.
So Jason Collins breaking news.
I'm sure you also all Jason islands.
Um, that's Brian.
I don't know when that would obviously would have been pretty soon, but, uh, you said he was here the 11th I think continues.
Graphic for thes graphic arts at its finest.
Yeah, this is the peak of graphics, I think.
Spurs fans, We're losing it.
This is in, like, 2000 the year 2000.
They figured out how to use the Grady and thing on photo shop, and they just went off the hook just great.
And everywhere like that defines your well.
Now you goto arenas and like, it's just like a frickin rock show every time and its blaring.
And like every graphic, no graphics are impressive now.
But at this moment in 2003 if you had a basketball on fire, that seemed like the coolest thing that you've ever seen in your life Now are so spoiled it just doesn't matter like way.
See, like photos of Tom Brady and a buck's jersey the moment he signs and we're like, Yeah, that's what happens on social media.
It just you could transport a person's body into a different jersey.
What's happening right now? Way Get Jordan in the Wizards jersey until it actually happens.
Those air having grown up outside D.
That was peak Mike's milks childhood right there when Jordan was with the Wizards.
What hope and optimism.
And, uh, it was pretty good people for yet.
It's pretty **** good as a basketball player, even on the lizards.
Yeah, Wizard Sr was underrated.
I feel like he likes still just put a ****ing It's still awesome.
I mean, he was just a bad GM.
He like forcing our trade rip Hamilton.
Um, for I think we got Jerry Stackhouse.
Uh, that was today.
But at this point, that's like part of the legend of Jordan.
It's like we've become part of his mythological figure.
Such a thing like the greatest ever do it, but one of the historically worst ever like run it around there.
He gave him tickets.
He definitely worked the Nets in that Wizards jersey.
That's funny, because that's the washed, washed Jordan ends up playing for the Wizards.
Wash. LeBron ends up playing for the Lakers.
What's a better franchise would be a little different set up and I think I do.
There. Is them Doctor.
Thier triple Garrett's Giving You love for your Jersey says it's absolutely on Fuego.
Wicked skinny man.
This game was HD back in 2003.
Yeah, we we will perpetually marvel it at the advancements and definition over the last 10 years.
Big difference, but also pro Tip.
If you're watching this on periscope, best to keep it in the small box.
Don't don't go full screen on this.
It's gonna be better on the guy's a shout out to SportsCastr dot com a seat.
Your boy Penguins fan with the dough? No, thanks, brother.
Just just some housekeeping.
Mike ahead. Sorry.
And then what is this? Yeah, What is that? It's a fake jump.
False word is that I've never seen them not do anything like that before.
I have a doctor.
J Theory, which is basically no basketball player, has a higher approval rating amongst all MBA fans.
Not even like how people view him as a player, but no one hates Dr J.
I think everyone loves section.
There are people out there who do know Jordan but probably despises Fanbases.
Despise him in certain ways.
Piston fans, I guess.
Um, you told you as fans, certainly.
But no one hates Dr J.
Just Everyone loves him.
He's in Dr Pepper commercials.
He lights up the screen emulates of Marina's J.
Did you ever read? There's a long form article about how certainly Kareem Abdul Jabbar is like in his day to day life.
So he's got, like, a handler, basically who I mean for all intensive purposes, like he's like, I guess, on the spectrum or something really difficult to be around socially.
And there's like a an assistant that he's hired that just gives around like apology cards after every, like interaction with people you like.
Thanks for hate.
Like talking with the bar.
I could certainly use that in my life.
I could use a cleanup man automated email e like, did not just my smells.
I'm sorry about that, Actually.
Greatly values your opinion.
You want here in the moment.
Um uh, Alex term in the chat.
He's coming off a 20 foot jumper were already back in the area where I want to be so beautiful.
Oh, Jake, it pull it out.
It's either going to use.
Been Winters s is is carry the most widely hated on player that has ever been on the Nets.
By who? By people like general abuse.
So this is widely is going wide on this question.
Yeah, Jason Williams is always pretty, but that I mean, I I understand, Like not saying no Steve Kerr. All right.
Did people hate Jews? Ones were just like I thought he was like, What an idiot.
Like what a scary idiot.
Like I just think it's like, Oh, yeah, the whole thing is crazy But it's not like it's just more like, Wow, it's It's like it's so crazy, you know? I don't know.
Maybe people hate crazy things like that.
What was that? Was that Richard Richard Jefferson, thinking about about a dumper and being like, I'm going to drive actually scored Pop called The Early Time Out.
All right, young pop, Look, ***ually.
I kind of worse than new pop here.
I think Kyra is definitely our most hated player in the way that, like modern day fans, hate on a player.
But you gotta think about keep people hate Katie, too.
It's really both of them right now.
I kind of get obviously you know, that supporter here, I kind of get Kyrie.
I don't really understand the Katie.
I know the whole, like joining the Warriors and joining arrival.
But, like, I feel like we're just so in the air of guys joining up with teams like it wasn't like he started it.
And, like LeBron got hate for the decision that he was hated.
LeBron was hated for at least a year to um and then people began to love him again, particularly also when he went back to Cleveland.
But this has never cared that Katie went to the wars that, like, didn't offend me in the level that oh, fundamental Big Timmy Keys.
He's looking puffy in these years, too.
Puffy years, different diets back there.
Yeah, you were in plant based, 100%.
What a collection of like this is like the ultimate podcast finals with Steven Jackson and ultimate like **** talker commentators that have ever existed right now in this current generation.
What's that? Kenyon Martin's digital footprint like to see you get a podcaster? Anything pretty.
This is his son is very popular, more more popular than he is online right now.
His son is, I'm pretty sure senior in high school.
Just don't take talk.
I mean, what's this? What's his deal? I just seen I just see his highlights on overtime, and, uh, he's got a pretty decent social following.
He's just next in line, like Ronnie Jr or brawny James I year, like just another one of these former NBA players who has a kid that's most likely gonna make it to the MBA.
Yeah, I know it's early and brownies career.
I really obviously impressed because you can.
He seems depressed, but I do need to, like, know how good he is, like way like Is he like actually going to be like a number one pick? Or this is just way too early? Means a freshman, so I can't imagine people are that locked in.
It's not like he's like a super tall, like if you're obviously super tall and mobile as a freshman, you're projecting well, it's like is brawny going to be a top five? Pick him.
And if so, his dad wants to play with him.
Apparently, that's no.
Wow, Wait, how Dwight Howard told you he's not that tall.
That's 66 to Yeah, I'm looking up right now.
Held desire So fresh and 15 years on the same team and doesn't get minutes.
Ronnie comes off the bench as a freshman for that team.
They're done now.
Sierra Kanan, Kanan Canyon There.
I'm trying to say what I'm trying to Sandburg.
They're one of the best teams in the country, and Bronte comes off the bench, is a freshman, So if you think about your own high school, you know anyone as a freshman that gets to play varsity.
It's gotta be somewhat good Now.
There's a whole level of politics that obviously goes into it cause he's LeBron James, kid.
I don't see him as a top five pick put.
I mean, we're looking at another ball as a topic next year, and you know, the big baller brand worked all that into existence like this kid is gonna be a topic, and he didn't play in any NC double stuff he didn't even finish high school.
So I think they're gonna They're gonna figure out a way for, uh, Ronnie James to be maybe a top 10 15 lottery pick.
Yeah, I think that's right.
I mean, who knows, right? But, like also, I'm not to be, Ah, marking marking marking Mike over here.
But if you have this kid who's been like, who is like one of the biggest, uh, he's the son of the biggest star, but he himself is like has this whole like infrastructure around him of like, making him a star Already, people are gonna be interested in him in the draft, more so than you know, some kid who's just, like, really get a basketball from Yeah, the beach area or something from overseas.
The next Luca is going to go after Ronnie James just for the impact that he's gonna have with his Tic Tac's in his instagram and is following.
The kid is a freshman, and he's got millions of followers.
Give him another 13 years, give his dad another three years in the n b A.
And I'm sure they're gonna cook up something with Nick's.
It's happening way.
Also saying mother was going there saying that melon ball is gonna be on the Knicks.
But, hey, they said They said Zion was coming to the Knicks and we saw how that cooked that cookie crumbs.
You know, the Knicks are probably gonna get the first pick in this draft because this is a draft that everyone says stinks.
That's just like a Dixie Richard Jefferson.
Anthony Andrews is also such a player.
He's very like having him in charge a bear together to, like, extremely athletic guards.
You can't really shoot.
Yeah, that would be a very guards.
Yeah, that's pretty much it.
There would be, like the calves with ***, it and garland, except the worst to be cool.
Or they take, like Killian Hayes and ruin him basically like another kid.
I think he's rare.
Me You can't shoot, but he liked people.
All right, So just sound like a disaster for the next Look at this.
Gorgeous creative tool working overtime.
Look at home, which holds that was Edward.
And where they had the whole can use.
And they had him like jumping over deserts like it was pretty bad.
Mike, you'll be excited to know that I watched endgame for the first time, like two nights ago.
Finally got around to it.
What? I think, Yeah, I mean, they tied it up neatly.
It was all right.
I mean, it's not, um Yeah, it's fine. Fine.
Do people have, like, serious hot takes about those kinds of movies? Yeah.
I was gonna tweet something about that yesterday.
I was gonna ask is like half those movies air Awful.
Like I watched the first Captain America.
Uh, **** that. Movies.
It's like, if there's no point.
So I think like the second Captain America, which is not like a really hot take were soldier.
But yeah, like those, like the 1st 1 of all those movies are all bad because it just because we all know what's happening.
Like they have powers and they discover them.
And then they become something.
Then they fight a Nazi.
It's always fighting Nazis.
What's he doing with the Red skull? Guy consumed a Phil.
What's what's his deal? He's like a super nuts, but he's like eyes like he becomes the guardian of the like stone or something.
That's the same house that had.
Better not to think about it.
Okay? Spirits, spirits.
It's just crazy for for mainstream motion picture.
But the reason for the stream? No, no meeting like I don't know anything.
I don't know that I'm not like that kind of marvels that the history behind every single move of the screen got it Doesn't explain Thio Cast America pick up the hammer.
Yeah, that's what I was.
How come he was allowed to do that? What's up with that Hammer shows that you're worthy.
Does it just It just took a Taliban, you know? Basically, um, all those movies were just fillers to give them more time to get the technology together.
For them to make the Avengers movie.
It's killing time until the c g i and the other graphics they needed for endgame to be made one on track.
So, like I roll out another Captain America, roll out another iron man.
Uh, no Captain Marvel out there as well.
And now we're ready for a Black Panther.
Sure, we'll give these guys three Avengers movies.
I think they were sleeping on Ant man as an O.
P like he comes in and like at the end, he's just, like, huge and just dunking on all those like flying bug things, whatever you think, punching them in the face and that's it.
Like what? Why don't you roll this dude out earlier? He's why we're keeping him on the bench. I don't get it.
I already got, I think we talking about here.
That black widow was effectively canceled.
Now, Yeah, that's hard.
It's hard to scar jail.
And I also don't get, like, how they justify having, like, Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson run around with no powers, somehow somehow making it.
You know, there has to be like a nice marksman on the villain side, just like okay, I see people that have no superpowers and clear them off the board a real quick, but it's really just a shot at a Batman in D.
They're like, Well, that man did extremely well with no powers.
We gotta have a guy at least survive with no powers.
Brooks hot takes on the idea that a offense senator on the fastbreak isn't is viable in 2020.
Sure false offense.
You're the play by play guy.
What's okay? Well, ISAT the fast breaking his team in Modern Best were in other books.
You say they're pretty fast breaking, like the way they kind of like they're all about, like, blocking shots and, like double teaming so that they force turnovers so I could do that.
And also the rocket's gonna do that, too.
Yeah, I would say that I think it's a viable way in the regular season, at least.
It'll be interesting to see, like what some of them, like I really, really do hope we get.
I mean, like everybody else, I want the season to resume, but a lot of it was just because I feel like this year There were so many conflicting styles of play like Maur so than a really, really long time, like obviously everybody shooting threes.
But there's at least different ways of doing it.
Like the Rockettes playing super small Lakers airplane, huge bucks are playing fast break, uh, the There's not really that many teams running like set offenses as much anymore, but there's at least two tons of like the the the Nuggets play super slow and threw a big man.
There's just so many different styles of play.
It was gonna be really interesting to see because the playoffs are a lot of times, all about matchups.
Um, it was gonna be really interesting to see, like, who lines up with who, what that looks like in certain situations.
So, yeah, I've been thinking about that ally accident.
It's a crying shame.
I was like I was taking my dog and I walked in.
I was like, Man, I don't get to see the Nuggets like losing around What kind of big it's sitting here.
This is the first couple of days or it kind of hit me.
I'm like, Oh, we're like, really could be in this for the long run, like I don't know.
I know Mark even said he wants to, like, bring it back in May.
But I don't know.
We'll see, Really, I'm sure Mark even does want it back in May made all the owners and players being like, Yeah, we really want to bring this season back.
It's like, you know, **** you want to make money, right? I'm sorry.
I don't know everything that we hear every day.
Doesn't it make me optimistic that this is gonna be a game like this is we're in this for the long one.
Like the fact that it's been two weeks from me self quarantining myself today blew my mind.
I'm like, we're not even in the first quarter of this.
Like, we're not even through the first quarter.
I love basketball.
I love baseball, football of all of our American sports.
But thing is going to impact everything moving forward where we're not just gonna be able to resume.
It's just it's not going down.
Um, think about going to a basketball game and, you know, sitting in the seat next to a complete stranger.
Think about the amount of people that sit in those seats like they're not.
They're not going to just I don't know.
They're not gonna be able to resume like Yeah, come on. Come on.
Come on down to Barclay Center in in May, and we're gonna act like nothing's ever happened.
I just saw Lisa.
Were president screen that that was not a twin. Was that there was.
Yeah, well, they are.
Therefore she's gonna be the halftime performer of Came running in San Antonio.
Lisa Marie Presley.
If anyone's interested, right, I will be potting after about this game, and I'm trying to figure out categories and you guys keep that mad if you want to help find some of these And one of them's, like, oddest retro moment and Lisa Marie Presley is gonna be the winner.
Yeah, I, uh what year did she reveal her relationship with Michael Jackson? Was that around this time? Is this the height of her that had, like, a pretty miss a fire single? But I'll join you, put the fire, filled their hearts for that That would hurt music over shaped like a pop song that was definitely out there.
She was married to him for how she said, Incredible.
She was married.
Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage.
It's pretty dope.
It's a nice set of men.
D'oh! If we were listening with the sound on, you could hear the music. They were planned.
I made that joke earlier about people talking about 2000 and three they were talking about.
Ludacris is dope album.
They played like three different ludicrous songs in the arena.
You had, like, uh, stand up and, like, throw them both.
Michael, we're going to get, uh, talker, Another king of talking crap.
Which? Which of the Spurs personnel be it on the floor or on the bench right now is most likely to be our coach next year.
I could see him broke my wrist.
Wow, that would actually really pained me just for, like, encore reasons.
Who would be done in Oakland? Comes over to us to rejoin Katie Way talk **** on his offense.
Lead assistant coach Right now for the Spurs Riel.
Steven Jackson would be respected.
My lovely no love Steven Jackson is my coach.
Who was it? Who was it That was like a horrible so like with Brian and ruined Jason Kidd obviously was the coach, but that's how he chose Thio.
The media, which is like I have no personality.
That's I don't have a choice.
E think that's unfortunately that's that's That's the way it was in Africa with Lionel Hollins.
I think he was spilled.
Bye bye, Lana loans I love while Collins talking because he was just a straight shooter.
Didn't give a dangerously street.
You get the idea that those two are together? Um, getting yanking the the Lakers situation is just unbelievable.
I can't imagine what those readings are.
Yeah, I think like, but Jason Kidd sort of like bizarre, catatonic personality is totally, really? That's that's sort of my understanding of who is, um how about that running? Speaking of thickness about that Rodney Rogers was brighter 100 units.
I mean, that's a bottle.
You just do not see the MBA anymore.
Um, by the way, do you guys want to know about Lisa Marie Presley's charity work in humanitarian efforts? According Thio Wikipedia, you know, get it up? Sure. Hit.
Um, she Oh, God.
She released their own version of in the ghetto in 2007.
Obviously that was help one of Elvis.
His arms like what the **** is in the ghetto? I know that from tic Tac.
I'm in the ghetto in the ghetto.
No, never ready.
It's probably not politically correct.
Thought the worst thing you've heard in your life, but it's and then she covered it.
And yes, so I mean, obviously the history of Elvis is that he took music that he basically stole from a lot of black artists in the days.
And then he writes a song called In My Ghetto, which is like, Jeez, Elvis, that's so you're you're really going out there, um, zero ****s given here what I want.
I'm the King of Rock.
I mean, apparently he was like the user cooking.
Wow, I am just feeling on elbows.
Second master Elvis standing relationship.
But Tom Hanks reason why Tom Hanks does in Australia because he's making a movie about Elvis.
So that's what, uh, connecting Corona virus and Elvis.
Is he Elvis in this movie? He's Elvis's manager, something like a guy whose name I colonel something.
Yeah, sorry, That's a crazy diversion.
No, no, I was given with five already.
I gotta say, I'm enjoying this game.
So far, it's been a I mean this nets teams.
So, um like I love I love any team that's built in a super one dimensional way, like all it did.
Well, I guess two dimensional, and that all they did was play defense and new fast breaks like they were pretty much unable to score and 1/2 court set outside of taking the Jason Kidd post up.
Little efficiency to use and things like that.
Let's see, maybe Rodney rodders prove me wrong right here.
Um um, but like, just build a team to be like we'd like, I've noticed that we do fast breaks well, And then, like by year two of noticing that just go all in get rid of Keith Van Horn.
Um, just, uh on just like plague carry kids.
Lt's an ungodly amount of minutes, like just like when any team doubles down on what they do.
Well, I guess, um, and who couldn't love this team, Which is why I still talk to talk about this all the time.
Will forever hold it against Bill Simmons in his book of basketball, where he talks about He doesn't like watching the Nets Pistons Siri's from next year because he doesn't like that basketball, which I just can't I can't relate to.
You mean like sure there's like, an aesthetic to these New Jersey Nets? That's pretty like, at a glance, pretty gross.
Um, but like a, uh just a passable nerd should find something really like attractive about it.
I would say the person he's speaking as the number one Boston fans, Of course he hates watching the place is massively biased.
Of course I get Yeah, this time was different, man.
And, uh, I mean, we'll get to it, I guess Friday, we'll watch a game, too.
But this is fresh in my mind cause I watched Game two on MBA TV yesterday, and that was a game where kid dropped 30 and everything went through him.
He scored, but he had the ball in his hand majority of the time.
And you see any end of Game two? He's dog tired, and it's still all running through him like they're found him to put him on the line.
He's exhausted, but like the game is in his hands is game to the light.
Doesn't Matombo have like a resurgent game or something? Isn't there one of these games summoning the channel? No.
Maybe, um, it's either like game like, I don't think it was game to cause.
I just watched that yesterday and he was on the bench chair for most of it.
I think in their second wind he comes back and has a big fourth quarter or something.
I think it's gaining four.
And, uh and that one is the Nets home game.
Yeah, because this whole season, he's been, like, basically benched after that.
That was one of their big acquisitions.
Yeah, And that in the dock, I put that history of the Nets YouTube like, I guess it's like a 15 minute die home.
They talk about, they talk about I guess the failed Atma Tomba was as an acquisition for us.
Yeah, they filled a couple of times of that.
Next year we're gonna flick it with, um, that'll be some ****y We could skinny refresh my memory on how wash my timber was That he couldn't get minutes in this serious was just a foul machine.
Yeah, it's a good question.
I mean, like, cause when he does play like, he will come back and have, like, meaningful spurts to end like he I think this is, like, basically why Byron Scott doesn't come back next year or does come back next year, but gets canned because like he could, they could never figure out a way to make any of their like big men work.
Eventually, Um, I think it's just because he liked goes all in on this fast break.
But like Nintendo's Washington, it's only half.
This is like classic nets.
He was, like, sort of washed, but like he becomes full blown washed as soon as he gets on the nets.
Which is what happens to so many so many players around this time of day.
Yeah, I remember, like Jeff McGinnis wanted to see the Nets because that effect, it was like I wanted.
Like they tanked my career in such an emphatic way that, like, I may need to seek my counsel from a lawyer.
Yeah, that was sort of, I mean, for a long time.
Um, I think Mathilde came from the Spurs, though here before, right? No, he was.
Where was he? Beautiful Tumble before this, I'm on basketball reference now, So let me see what I can happen.
Because there's no way was that he was really Yes, and he was an all star.
He would have not been like.
4 blocks a game and 11 rebounds, which is not, like, obviously blocks on everything.
And I'm sure he was phenomenal on defense.
But then he goes the Nets and then his scoring gets cut in half his rebound, basically cutting half blocks.
There's still 1.
He's only playing 21 minutes a game at 36 years old.
Just how old is 36? He was. He was 36.
He still played another six seasons.
After that, he went next to than five.
Seasons were used.
It was like a good guy still on the court, walking a shot.
Tom Bo coming in.
Act like he's not scoring.
He's not getting buckets.
He hasn't scored since game to a blast.
Siri's Alex terms.
Is that the cookie monster guy elixir? What year were you born? Are you even alive for the serious? No way.
No, there's like he was the night of nights.
Just a just a final baby.
17 years ago, it was definitely from young kids that were not around.
Ma Tembo for K, V H and Todd Mac.
Yes, that's correct.
Do you want to guess who the fifth leading scorer on the Nets was this season the fifth leading scorer I give you kid Jefferson, Kenyon Martin and Kerry Kittles.
One of the great.
Um, that is a big boy.
Uh, hot McCullough.
McCullough was o G.
Um, you can't see it in the stat line was before he was before he can see it in start line. Jason Collins.
By the way, Todd MacCulloch went on to be a competitive pinball player.
In fact, the day Keith for you competitive.
That's what they're running on the ocean right now.
I think he liked had Thio had something really bad toe injury that prevented him from playing, and he just got real serious about pinball.
Doesn't get real serious, but you gotta be able to pivot in life.
You know, you gotta be able to switch it up 100% 100%.
I totally forgot that Scalabrine.
He was on the team to another phenomenal speaker.
This this is loaded.
Siri's fellas just keep an eye on it.
Should have a roundtable of Scalabrine, E.
Jackson, Richard Jefferson and then Jason Kidd.
Skeleton came What Kmart? Definitely So like.
Here's my thing about Kenny Martin.
Is that okay? If he was, let's say he's a 21 year old right now and he's entering the MBA.
He was more valuable in this era than this Arab era off what we're watching right now than the one that's happening one of the moment, right? I don't think he's like, I think he's like pretty much stuck in that era, which is like, You can't shoot way still cared about our power forwards being big and burly and getting rebounds, right? Yeah, it's kind of hard because like, he was actually like, he became a decent shooter, like, sort of towards this, Uh, maybe not even towards the end of his career.
Like right, Like, he kind of, like trailed off like eventually but, like, right here, like he could make like, a 20 footer, a shot you had never taken in.
Today's in bed set, right? So, yeah, but he's not, like, completely useless on that level at this point.
I'll say that, But yeah, you're right.
He wouldn't be shooting in today's India for sure.
Like is he? Was he? Is he big enough to play the five? I guess he could be a backup, pretty using pretty bad.
He was a badass.
So I don't want, like, take shots at Kenyon Martin.
But I don't know if he's a guy that could even play the five.
At this point, you have to play five.
Maybe John Collins.
Yeah, he's definitely of John Columns, but, like also Junk owns, like, is much differently than Kenny Martin.
Yeah, and the Spurs take the lead.
But weirdly, I think like Kenyon Martin could have, like, I mean, and this is a weird thing because, like, comparatively, they're in very different places in the career.
But like how? Let Rhonda Hollis Jefferson like? I think he was more like you played down more Winky them than power forward, even though it was like a big um, because like he's still lean and fast in like a really deft runner to the rim and things like that.
So I feel like someone could look that Martin fit somehow.
I will save you.
The Nuggets failed to do it miserably in two years after this, so so maybe that's proof to that.
It would work 27 26 but the Spurs were built.
Try to think of a like a modern day comfort Kenyon Martin that lake, that bruising Shawn Kemp style like power for just doesn't just they just don't want it.
I mean again, it's like a guy becomes the center, basically.
Or if you can't play Centre than you're not playing if you're not gonna do really had to travel, the Spurs would have figured out right now to play with.
Obviously, Duncan was no brain Steve.
I was just tweeted.
Other MBA owners are watching Sixers and weighing the PR fall over a desire to do the same with salary reductions.
Uh, did I miss what happened? Whatever with the Sixers have been, like kind of off twitter last couple of days.
I don't know what they're paying.
They're only to pay their employees like four days a week or something s So they reduced the salaries of their employees and I saw him beat, came out and pledged half a 1,000,000.
But their owner, Michael Rubin, is one of the richest guys.
He's a piece of **** fire filter.
Here is here's a fun story for you guys.
I interviewed, uh, two years ago to be his like his like, social media shadow person.
It was never going to go down because it was never gonna go down.
But I did get I did get I did get a phone interview, a video conference and then I got to come in and meet him and talk to him for about an hour.
But I wasn't rocking with the six years I can't stand the six.
Yeah, he should be taking care of these people.
I'm sure it's in the budget to make sure that these people just I don't get paid throughout the duration of this thing.
Instead, who knows what decisions were made? A guy like Joel Embiid, he's gotta put up half a $1,000,000.
No, Michael Rubin is a billionaire.
I think I might be thinking the wrong guy.
No, There's more than one owner.
It's an ownership group for the 60 trying to back out of the corner.
Yeah, it's got You could say whatever you want.
Uh, no owner wants to log in to Twitter and see his network trending after announcing this kind of news.
That's the end of the world.
Uh, loads tweet.
Well, some more contact you when I interviewed for the position he was trying to come into the social media world.
He was trying to be more known than being a background guy.
He wanted to build his.
Instagram wanted to build his Twitter He's been seen with like little Uzi vert.
Meek Mill is is like right hand man.
Supposedly, he helped Meek Mill get out of prison with the whole prison reform reform and free meek hashtag.
And in Drakes like latest song, he actually wraps and says something like, I saw Michael Rubin win a $1,000,000 on one hand.
So this guy's trying to be in the public eye.
This guy's trying to be a famous owner, a celebrity owner, But you gotta take care of the folks, man.
Take care of the people that make the Wells Fargo Center run Your own beach didn't have to put up 500,000 because 500 thousand's a lot more to him than it is to Michael Rubin.
I mean, still good that M B is chipping in because we've seen a lot of players step up like great for indeed.
But when you think about the money, that indeed has made in his career versus the money that, you know, just one of the Sixes owners and Michael Rubin as this type of new shouldn't be coming out.
The people that work in Philly in the Wells Fargo center should be well taken care of through this.
It's unfortunate, but a lot of times in business, we see these guys at all the way up top.
Look at a big picture and say I'm taking a hit.
They gotta take a hit, too.
I'm just checking the feet because my O.
B s is clutching, but, um, seems like we're Gucci.
Yeah, just just check and make sure that's not good.
You still get on periscope kid Santonio.
Um, Matt, what else is new? Uh, actually worked on some of yesterday, which is tonight.
So I'm trying to do, like, write an article week s Oh, I like that.
So the hard part, like the nice part about streaming, we kind of do this whenever and there's a 1,000,000 old games we could watch in terms of stuff that I'm working with that it's gonna be from this season, which we have no idea.
If it resumes, I only have so much good.
So I'm trying to, like, stretch it out.
We'll also like continuously feel like I'm sort of in the swing of everything.
And just like in the swing of writing, it's very easy to get out of that.
So I did something I care.
It's kind of like I feel like I have it touched on, have gone back and forth on, like whether I think they should keep him or what I think he's placed it.
So I did like a really affirmative, you know, film study stats, deep dive tip A thing on Ben was like, pretty again, like firm on where my stance was because, like, I just there's a couple guys on this team where I feel like I haven't, uh, haven't played one side of the other pulling.
Maybe I have in certain streams or on the podcast.
I come on, but I haven't been, you know, somewhere we confined by exact opinion on what somebody lets me know.
Now I want to know Matt, You want them to cut carrots over? Is that what you're saying? I know I would do.
I would definitely, uh, I would look at the market.
I look at it pretty strongly.
What's out there? You D'oh! What's out on the mark? Yeah, We'll just see what? Like, you know, he's probably got more trade value than anybody on the team right now.
Spencer did what is right now? Um Clocky.
A lot of his like his numbers that have been, I guess, promising Right now, the three point numbers Most of us were coming off the dribble, whereas next year I think he'll be kind of relegated to a little bit more of a spot up role where he's been OK has been, like kind of around average, maybe a little below average shooting in those positions.
Um, and then everything else.
It's like, you look at his numbers free February versus Post February, right around February 1st was a fiery stop playing.
I think he left with the knee injury against Washington February 1st, and that's also when care started coming on, which obviously in a great sign and you look it after that, that's one like his defense, you know all his efficiencies and that is deflections.
Is his shots contested per game.
All these other little stats you can look at that sort of give you an idea of defense.
Those started going up is, you know, regular traditional numbers started going up his passing numbers, he added.
I think like and assist and 1/2 per game.
After February 1st, all those things started going up was Kyrie was out.
So you know, you're obviously gonna lose a little bit no matter what.
Do you have a star player on the roster? But it's kind of troubling for me that every aspect of his game started to kick start once he was out of line.
So yeah, that's what I mean look like if they end up keeping him, he's very good a player that worked well for the most part early in the season when they had human Kyrie doing their thing.
Yeah, I think I kind of going back living at his numbers.
I forgot how effective caress waas early in the year.
Like the first couple of games, that kind of like it was lost on me a little bit, at least on offense.
But I do think it is worth keeping an eye on that and wondering and having that question like, Was this the perfect situation for Paris over these last two months? So that's the thesis of Keith.
Am I correct in thinking that you've been a keep cares kind of guy? Absolutely.
Uh, you fellas, I had to drop out for a little bit. I'll be back.
All right. See it? Yeah.
I just I don't know. I'm cared.
Caress is near and dear to my Nets Horn.
I feel like he's a guy that we don't want toe let go anywhere and then he'll be the one that got away.
I'm glad that he started to come into his superstar form these last few games before the pandemic hit.
Because we've seen, you know, take away the injuries.
This guy hasn't really had a full year to play.
He's still young.
We like all of his moves, all the tools, the way, handles the ball.
Ray shoots the ball like he's got the pieces to be the guy like we've seen him be the guy the last few games, and it's unfortunate that can he got fired because I feel like Kenny was Brian into Okay, this is time for caress to be the A one number one guy.
I think everything happens for a reason.
He got a chance to drop 51 points and show who he really is and who we can be.
And putting that on tape was enough for a lot of fans.
And probably people in the organization to say way should see what else this guy can do.
Maybe maybe he's the Big three in our big three.
Maybe he's the third player in our Big Three with Katie Kyrie.
We'll see what the market looks like.
We'll see what the summer holds.
I am a keep caress guy.
I think he's got more to do more to grow, and I think he's gonna really benefit from being on the court with someone like Katie.
He didn't even really get to play with Kyrie much this year.
So Kyrie to um, Alex terms is, can we get some Jared Allen treat ideas on the table? Be ready for that.
Are you ready? Oh, I'm surprised that I'm the only one that's kind of in the care stillbirth.
I just I don't believe in trading guys that like ba*****t value.
I feel like that's a weird You're not really doing yourself any favors when you're performing transaction.
And here's the thing for me Also care.
Selous Value like Swing's pretty wildly on, um, originally Oasis.
So, like, yeah, you're you're tracking of a volatile stock at that point.
All right? Right? No, but like that stock is up.
Yeah, it's super.
So that's why I'm I'm kind of like Why not just do it now and honestly, even if it doesn't hand out like if our if he pans out elsewhere? Oh, well, I think is kind of how I do that.
I just like for somebody that's missed so much time because he's missed, like a full season of development, essentially and still has, like holes in his game, I'd say, and it just all kind of seems like he just needs the ball in his hands.
His usage rate was like is round 30% which I know that sounds like number nonsense, but it's right, like basically where Kyrie was before he went down with injury.
That's where Carrie's has been since then.
So it's just like I don't know what he looks like a role where he doesn't have the ball in his hands all the time and like he's the number one guy.
So that's why I'm kind of like in the Campo.
I'm not really sure.
I mean, I like watching him a lot.
So part of me is just thinking from his stick.
Like his stance, I guess, is I wouldn't want him to be marginalized and thrown kind of in the corner because not only he's gonna have to work him in next t o Kyrie.
You're also really gonna work next to the true number one option, which is gonna be so I don't know.
I would want somebody that's like a little bit more of like a hey, I can absolutely work in a spot up roll And that's not me getting thrust into a corner.
That's something that I'd be comfortable and have showed signs of being able to do in, I guess, Previous situation.
So that's where I'm at right now? Yeah, I think it definitely can get done.
I think that the Nets are smart, and I also I think the Nets have shown us that they don't care.
They're not thinking like the fans.
They're thinking they're not thinking like I would be thinking to say, Oh, he's our guy, you know? He came up with us.
We can't let him go too soon.
No, it's business for them.
They understand that the window is with Katie Kyrie, and if we can get a good haul for him, if we could get a good return for him, they'll send him.
Um, in Just this past season, we saw what Spencer Dinwiddie playing at an M V P level.
Our fans are saying Trade him trading at the deadline. Trade him now.
He's never gonna have higher value.
Betrayed him now and maybe in a baseball guy.
I know that well, There's a lot of times where you see guys get on a baseball team and pitch well just for the first half and get dealt, you know, and that's just how the game is played.
It's about value and what you actually, you know, it's two sides is the value that these guys show, and then how you actually value these guys and seeing what you can get from you.
But Alex's point the like the Jared Allen situation's tricky because he's coming off his record contract, and that's not on.
I think there's no way.
Yeah, there's nowhere he stays without Kenny.
And, uh, yeah, I think the trial run.
You know, Jared Allen's free trial with Nets is that's the point that, like Jared Allen on a rookie contract, is like, Yeah, good, great, like cool to watch, actually having to pay him like market value, which is like, I don't know.
I don't know where that is anymore.
Um, can't be that much.
I mean, the problem is, is it's really hard to predict now because of what the hell is going on with dollar capital somewhere.
They're losing like eight million.
Each scene could lose up to $8 million.
Uh, you mean the cap.
The cap scene is reduced three caps.
System is so bizarre to begin with, like I don't understand.
Yeah, it's that it goes into luxury, taxes and stuff like makes makes.
They should just have a ah hard cap for the team and not do independent like player salary caps because the idea that, like, you know, LeBron James's makes up 1/6 of the of the Lakers cap sheet or whatever, like him and and Anthony Davis like, produced 90% of what's making that team like effective.
So why not pay that 90% of what's on the books? Or, you know, I don't know, like, That's if you want a leaguewide parody.
I think that's the way you get that done, although that's sort of already like we fell ass backwards into it just this year.
Yeah, but yes, it is tricky.
I mean, like, it's a big reversal, but I think like the team based caps is just like it's thereto.
Protect owners for making dumb decisions.
But it kind of hurts like super ex Transit like just transformative Lee.
Talented players from getting like, really, really paid what they should be getting paid.
Yeah, and like the NBA's about super early talent, I mean, that's just, unfortunately, the case that if you want to be competitive, have a championship level, you need at least top player.
Well, I think honestly, like with how much they can control their destiny, is now players that I mean, at this point, I don't know, like how much you really can do like to as a to give every market a chance.
I like you guys are gonna pick where they wanna go, then like that, It is what it is like.
That is, you know, the democracy.
Yeah, but I think like it would be awesome if you could, like, if Charlotte could suddenly be competitive for whoever like LeBron James are Steph Curry or something, just like they're gonna pay a 99% of the caption like suddenly, I guess that would be interesting.
So, yeah, that would be interesting.
I mean, I guess that I don't know, it's tough, because the way like the thing that I hate the most about, uh, about how it's set up is that you just feel like if you're a small market team, you not only need you, you like, they always So you need to hit a home run in the draft.
You really need to do it twice.
You really can't, because then you're stuck in a situation with, like, Minnesota, Karl sounds where it's like you have this guy.
He's definitely a top 20 guy, but he's now stuck out there, and no matter what she throw around him like, it's just pretty obvious that he's not quite like a top five guy, but he's in that mix where it's like you have that marketable guy.
So in a sense, it's like you.
You really do feel like man.
If that Wiggins things worked out that kept Levin or Jimmy Butler and say like that would have been like the situation for them where that would have worked.
But they're not obviously in that position now.
So now made it to make a panic trade and try to get the ends of Russell.
And it's just gonna we'll see where that goes.
And I think I think it's really to your point, like that's exactly true of, like, even the San Antonio Spurs, like they like, nailed a couple of draft picks early and set them on this course.
Now they're gonna mediocrity vortex.
You know, that's like a really difficult situation to yourself out of.
Yep, that that eighth seed vortexes tough.
Yeah, it is. It is again.
A lot of times it's just like smaller market.
Seems that get stuck in that you think like Grizzlies stuck in that forever after the Britain grinds days were very much abundantly, obviously over.
But I mean, you know, that's kind of the nature, but it's when you're in a smaller market.
It's just appealing to get into the playoffs and brings in more revenue.
It brings in more general interest from the community.
It makes sense to do it.
And I think it always makes sense to make the playoffs.
And even the Nets are like, Yeah, we might as well make you know It looks good.
It looks good. It's gonna look good.
It's gonna say, Hey, this is a team that's advanced in the playoffs two years in a row, the rebuild is complete even though nobody's gonna talk about that, they're gonna win, like every night games to get there.
Yeah, you know, look at that.
All the interested to see, like, you know after these, like Sockem for advance bleat ascendance years.
If Toronto can, like, continue to lure like, free agents, because it's sort of a weird city for that, like Toronto is, I guess, a cool place.
But you're also like getting taxed at, like, 50% of whatever in that bracket.
So um, yeah, I'll be interested to see if, like, that sort of feels like a like a tough market Thio figure out for that.
I'm a huge fan and I want the rappers like, kind of become the next Spurs.
Almost in a way, yeah, I mean, look there.
Definitely poised to be exactly that.
Well, yeah, like they're kind of They're on the same path where they're unearthing troubles.
A legitimate metropolis.
It's apparently I've never been.
You've just been right now. So it's so dope.
That's also the reason why it is such a dump its way.
Why do you like what's What's so good about Toronto? What's going on? I just I don't know what explain it.
It's like it's fun there.
There were a lot of gatherings, people just coming together, meeting.
It's like people have really discussions and, like, just like it's a lot of compassionate people that seem really, genuinely have interest in making conversation, which is like, you know, um, New York has that.
I think in a lot of ways I've said that since I moved out here.
It's different than like California, where I'm from where it feels like, Yeah, people will have conversations, but you come away upset this on street, you come away being like, Wow, I didn't learn one thing about you.
And you didn't learn one of those conversations out here, but that you also the other side where people will tell, you know, like **** off, get out of my fifties.
Empty conversations and negative conversations.
Hey, I'm with their arm or I've had more genuine conversations.
I have more genuine conversations out here in a week.
Then I'll have it in a month in California, So I'll take that any day.
I'll take the **** you conversations.
Yeah, I've always wanted to go to Toronto.
Drake makes it sound like the coolest place on earth.
And, uh, my fiance went.
And the way the universe works today, if there was no Corona virus, I would be coming back from Montreal.
I had a trip booked to go see the Yankees play the Toronto Blue Jays in Olympic Park in Montreal, but that obviously got dented and erased.
Um, yeah, I've never been to Canada.
I had a trip planned for Montreal are probably.
Once this thing gets its through, try and go see the Yankees play the Blue Jays in the Rogers Centre, which I've been trying to do for years.
Montreal's great love mantra.
I've never been in Montreal.
It's a great combination of like, it's got, like, super like classy French Canadian vibes and then also, like, alternatively, super grimy side to it, which is a nice to get a nice bounce to it.
I remember some like, you know, when I was I think just after I finished high school went up there like just there's, like lots of grimy strip clubs.
You know, that kind of situation.
Jack, Sean, tweet your boy right in front of that friend of the show.
Wait, I need to go back to the Sixers thing.
That was my, uh, Aleka Jay's J is moved TP salaries youth.
Okay, that's what I love.
The prince is just the salary filler guy now.
Well, I think it's gotta swing the other way.
Let's dp I'd always had a bad year. I'm starting.
Just feel back before Oh, man, Yeah, I feel like this whole thing is gonna change a lot of things.
Like I've changed my mind on Katie returning.
I was talking to someone today.
You know, I think you guys are the glue guys tweeted out Something about Katie was supposed to be playing in the Olympics so now I wouldn't play.
The season resumes in June, and I was talking about him having Corona virus and that being a respiratory disease and, you know, his camp.
Just not taking any chances on whatever the season is.
Yeah, I think this this is gonna have a huge effect on free agency is gonna have a huge effect on the draft.
When you look at the college players not getting the tournament, you know we're gonna have to go off of their regular seasons and draft these guys when there's a few guys like, you know, obviously, Steph Curry's Steph Curry.
But he had a huge tournament.
CJ McCollum playing for Aly.
I had a huge tournament.
There's a lot of guys that even like Taurean Prince plan for, Baylor had a big tournament.
Um, I don't know.
A lot of this is going to have longer lasting effects in the N b A.
And you know, I hope we do come back.
What is this? My tumbles Got the mandate over his lip.
Benelli way already do come back just because I I just I can't see.
I can't see them just closing out on the MBA without a champion for this year.
I just can't like it was really starting to get good, too.
And, of course, LeBron right.
LeBron is got a D.
And he's, you know, hitting his stride and really starting to play like an M V.
And I got to suspend the season, so I don't know.
I hope what we're doing now.
All the precautions that were taken now gets us out of this sooner.
Everybody taking it serious.
It took about two weeks for people to take it seriously.
I feel like this week it's dead serious everywhere, and hopefully we get some good news.
And you know, I trust in the N B.
A leadership I trust in the guys that make the decisions for the MBA.
I think they're gonna figure out a way to get back.
But in the back of my mind, there's also the reality that this could be done.
This thing could be over the Olympics air postponed to next year.
Um, I'm waiting for major league baseball.
I'm praying that they don't decide that baseball, you know, we're just shut the whole season down, so a lot to be seen in the next coming weeks and months.
Um, look, it's skinny.
I was talking about this previous conversation we have.
Wolves are tough example because they have dysfunctional ownership.
Slashed front office through the Levin and Wigan stuff for how poorly Butler handled his exit.
It was just It was justifiable, in a sense, is well made a lot of desperation.
Trades with new game plan in place.
Um, yeah, I think there's been a pretty, like, pretty severe, like swing back on the coach and president's position combo thing.
The standing bunny.
I got Reuben mixed up with the Sixers owner.
Who's So what's their ownership? Uh, their structure there.
The wolves know that Ruben, in the six years ownership, the grouper Reuben is the What does he do? He does the He's the fanatics.
I'm getting them both.
Yeah, Rubin owns fanatic way.
I was disappointed thinking it was Reuben, but to know that it's not.
I'm sure he's doing what he's supposed to do, Man.
He's very like I said.
He's very out in front.
He's he's with rappers.
His name is in a Drake song.
He he's a giant be like a celebrity owner.
I would doubt that with billions.
He's hiding from the situation.
He's probably out in the forefront.
Make sure to clip that.
Tweet that station.
Do we know that? I said, Well, that's my first real live mishap.
I don't think I had anything that bad.
Yeah, that's nothing.
That's not just a mixer.
Uh, small Michael Rubin watching.
He's definitely not watching 19.
And like a grease some living like he's on vacation.
Dude with a backward at some random, some random nets.
Podcasters Yeah, flat flag.
Yeah, a rota virus. Doctor.
Did you actually have Corona virus? E Don't know if it's undetermined, we'll just call it. Yes.
Yeah, we don't know.
I'm gonna say possibly I felt the fatigue like a mother****er that is the most tired up.
Did you lose your sense of taste or smell? I did not.
But isn't that for people that are asymptomatic? Or if I had a little light fever, soreness, a little bit of chest tightness was with that mean I'm asymptomatic.
I'm very confused on where the What's the Venn diagram? Like, I need to see a little map on this one.
We could give me something.
I'm saying if I did, I definitely got it around when I went to the Nets case.
There does, Right? That's my timeline.
But I definitely got symptoms before my girlfriend, and I'm thinking the only thing where I was around a ton of people was that next year.
So either got some weird flu there, which, like, weird timing, I guess.
Or, you know, we'll get skinny is letting you off the hook for the Reuben thing.
He says anything with the fire filter doesn't count.
Everyone knows the rules.
Fire filter get You got cover, air cover thistles.
My career right here, Keith.
You the kind of guy that gets that gets a lot of flu and colds or you Hardy? I feel like I shouldn't answer that question right now.
Yeah, I'm Friday.
I will be like, I can't be Oh, you asked me if I was the type to get flu's colds, and I said no.
Which means you'd answer that.
No, no, honestly, I don't have have allergies.
I want to say like, 50% of the year.
So on a **** right now.
Yeah, I will. I take like, Zyrtec.
And once I get that in my system, I'm good.
But I'll have these fits where I'm sneezing and my nose is running and people like Are you OK? You stick.
I'm like, No, it's just allergies.
I might get sick once a year.
And when I usually get that once a year, sickness is like when the seasons change from summer in the fall And I'm still thinking it's fallen.
I'm I'm going outside like this, and it's like a cold breeze that hits me.
Then the next morning I wake up and I don't feel well, but no, for the most part, I'm pretty healthy.
Would you do? Yep.
Guys exercise exercise, people.
Yeah, which sucks right now, because, like, I'm I'm a gym guy.
Monday through Friday.
Like lifting weights and **** my my gym in my apartment complex that shut down all the gyms around 6 a.m.
Yeah, well, like get up at six.
Go to the gym, come back, eat breakfast, go to work.
And now that you are you are you Gary V guy? Are you looking rising ground? Yeah, I am.
I mean, I just wake up.
Yes, yes, you know, Right.
That's what this is.
His first print for his his like fitness company was Wake up and work for Gary Highs.
That's I adopted.
He's a huge Gary V fan.
Uh, well, Jersey guys, uh, I adopted it because for a long time I was getting up.
I mean, I used to live in the shore area, and I worked at MT.
Need from, like, 2015 to 2017 and I lived down the shore.
I would commute, like, two hours just to get to New York and to get up and go to the gym before the two hour commute.
I was getting up at five.
In the morning and I just adopted that, like, wake up and work stuff.
And, uh, yeah, I don't know.
It's part of it's part of me, because when I played football in college, you don't have a choice.
So right when you when you when you play football in college, they do everything before class starts.
So you you're gonna have lifting at 6 a.m.
Then you're gonna have running at 6 a.m.
And they just rotate things during the season and during the semester.
So I think from college I got used to just being up and like, you know, after you do it for a while, you get used to like starting your day early like that and getting that extra time when the sun is down before everyone else is up.
And, uh so I'm so jealous.
I can't even tell you like I am so unable to do that.
My fiance is not like that.
I forced her into some of the workouts with me in the morning, but for the most part, she is not like she'll hear the alarm and cut it off and just go back into sleeping abyss.
And whenever she wakes up, she wakes up.
Me, I hear the alarm, and I'm like ding ding ding like round one, ready to fight like where we go, right to go and grind.
Yeah, it helps the Dixie Chicks in the house.
I'll say, I'll say the one version of it that that I have is I've gotten pretty dese about consistent meditation That's been my one, Like little used to calm at you.
Use the LeBron calm I've gone.
I've been able to do without the apple.
Just I just, like, sit there for ago.
Do the, um, third eye meditation just like basically like after you do your breathing, Whatever you keep your finger, your middle finger like just just in front of your forehead.
Just not touching it just like a millimeter away when you take it away and you try to focus on the feeling of it almost touching.
You have, like getting like a weird, like feeling.
And that's your That's your third light.
Just keep that going for, like, 20 minutes, and then you'd be a blissed out like may.
I have only done the calm after through my fiance.
She meditates a lot.
It is great, because I'm a social media person, podcaster, Internet like I'm on the phone and Mac book all day, every day that I'm awake.
So when I get to meditate and take a break from all that, it's like a weird like perspective, for sure, yeah, and it's also like it's weird to want to get in the groove.
It, like you can feel like, What's it like when you're doing it? Well, on when they're doing it badly like you.
Just like a There's, like a whole getting competitive with yourself.
You have, like, a better session.
You know, no one you didn't really like ****ing away.
Yeah. Guys, I gotta hop off, quick.
I'll try to help back on for, like, the way I got 10 more minutes.
All right, you guys, Friday, it works, All right? Yeah.
All right, you guys just us all good.
When did you start being? So I just, like, went down a Gary Deep Gary B rabbit hole.
Um, like, maybe starting like, a couple months ago, But I didn't realize that, like, it was headed towards that in the first place. Like I've been.
I've been, like, you know, just like trying to trying to get my teeth and entrepreneur land for for a while and just didn't realize how much of it.
Because when I first saw him, obviously something like 2015 I think this guy, but like, that's not that's not trying to hear all that.
But now it's Ah, it's resonating better.
I want to say it was 2018 kind of on the entrepreneur side to kind of on the like, Just like like I used to work corporate And I thought in my head for some odd reason that like I was, you know, on Lee measured on the title that I had and the company that I work for, I really just thought that, like the corporate ladder was a being.
I just I guess I had some misinformation from different people.
That's like, That's a commission that society gives you 100%.
Like I fell into that trap super hard, just like the siren's call of having a job that you could be like.
A This is like a ****tail party.
I have this a title year, especially in New York, because New York, you go to these mixers you go to, even if you don't, you don't go to a mixer, you go to a friend's house.
And in the first thing people ask you, So what do you do? Yeah, um, and the second thing people ask you is like, you know, So who do you work? for.
And if you don't have an answer like a Goldman Sachs or, you know, Microsoft or Facebook or go, I don't even know what people like throw out there to compete.
You kind of can get Look, that is like, Okay, you don't You're on.
You're not doing it or, you know, I don't know what you're doing, but for me, what it was was I actually slipped into the YouTube like wormhole because I wanted to start building my own YouTube out.
And I started come across his content, and a lot of his content was basically, like, challenging me.
Maybe it wasn't on purpose, but a lot of it was challenging me to see if I could do it.
So he said a lot of things like, you know, just talking about the Internet and talking about Hey, if you're good enough, no one's stopping you go out and do it.
Um, quit your job.
If you If you hate your job or you're in a situation that you don't like like it's your life.
You need to start living it And, like, don't live for your parents.
Don't live for your girlfriend.
Your girlfriend's parents don't live for your best friend trying to compete with kids you went to high school with and what they're doing now, do you? And for me, Like I said, I was working at MTV and 2015 2017.
I got one other gig at Freebo TV Shout the Fu Bo TV.
They just got acquired by Face Bank today.
No, I work that you both for a year.
And then I worked at Rock Nation for a couple months, and when I was at Rock Nation was when I really just got super close to like athletes and entertainers.
And I saw just I guess, what that corporate grind was like and what that culture was like.
And I made up my mind.
Then I was like, I don't want to be a behind the scenes anonymous social media guy that's just doing all this work for a check and not really fulfilled.
And Gary V was, like, stuck in my head like I'm goingto I'm going to work and I'm here in Gary V, like, Over my Shoulder, and then eventually just quit that job and didn't look back.
I did odd jobs like I worked in restaurants I drove lift or what I started doing was putting myself out there more, which literally this is what this is, um, doing videos, doing live streams, doing podcasts, going to the stadium or Yankee Stadium, specifically a huge Yankee fan.
And I've had access to the Yankees over the years, and that really built out my like, instagram and Twitter following.
And then I had a couple podcast that took off and just, like, got in the hole like sports world that way, when I was like, Man, this is cool.
I have the corporate back around and the corporate social media, digital marketing knowledge.
I took that with, like the person that I actually end and like the knowledge I have and who I want to be, I paired it like Gary V suggested saying, No one's stopping.
You try and put it out there and do it and it worked.
It didn't work right away. Don't get me wrong.
There was some times where I was.
I was tryingto go back.
Like I said, I interviewed from Michael Rubin.
I quit my job and then I saw, you know, post for fanatics looking for a social media manager and, you know, times got rough or I needed more cash.
And I was like, All right, I gotta go back in the corporate world.
And I went on a bunch of interviews and I didn't land any, Including that Michael Rubin job which just forced me to create more, like, motivate me.
I would come home and I'd be like, All right, we're going to do I taught myself how to edit videos.
I went out and bought a camera.
I taught myself how to edit podcast just worked on, you know, speaking and just being I guess I go influence her personality and fast forward July.
Oh, make it two years since I left my last corporate job, Rock Nation.
So many different opportunities have come my way of connected with the S And I work at a couple of commercials Run on the S Network this year starring me my podcasts.
It's crazy how many podcast I've done and how the whole podcast game even works.
You know, like I've had podcasts that get 20 listens.
I've had podcast that get 5000 listens.
I'm working with John Boy.
John Boy has literally changed baseball history, and I'm very I'm not John boy's right hand men, you know, Right now, as we're talking, I'm looking at stuff on slack.
I'm looking at our social media handles.
I'm looking at just messaging and what our editors are working on, what I have to work on.
We're putting together this opening day online activation where we're gonna just tweet out baseball stuff all day on Thursday and that all all of that happened through, you know, me first trusting gave E.
And I used to live like a baby.
I used to live not far from the liquor store that he talks about, working at where he said he would take the train to the Woodbridge train station.
I lived in Carter ready in 2016 not far from there.
So it was like, a weird thing.
I was like, Man, my energy and Gary Weise Energie have been in the same place and fast forward like, a couple years after that.
I ended up taking some of his advice, and when I meet him one day, I'm gonna straight up Tell him I gotta look, I have the video saved.
I'm like there's a couple of these videos where you were just bluntly talking to people, and a lot of people are scared and a lot of people won't do this.
I'm like I took your advice and jumped all the way off the roof.
And not only did I hit the ground like I hit the ground, like was a trampoline, and I sprung back up in a better position than I feel like I would have been if I stayed on that Gripper route that I was on a few years ago.
Here's a Here's a person you might be interested in this dude named Devon Nash.
He's got a twitch stream that I recommend for, like digital media marketing and stuff.
It gets a really good ****, and he's like a weird guy.
He's like, made his money and sports to think like he was like a sea of sports team.
I think it was actually the one that sold to MSG like three years ago or something.
Um, but anyway, so he does like twitch stuff now, and one of the things that he talks about for like streaming and things like this is like taking improv classes.
He's like It's the most Opie thing you can possibly do for this kind of ****, which is something I've been seriously thinking about.
So maybe someday Keith decided for some improv impromptu passes down, that's funny.
You say that because in, I guess in my journey in the last two years I remember was around Christmas two years ago.
So Christmas 2018 everything just shuts down in New York once you get like two weeks from Christmas, where I'm applying the jobs because at the time I was working at a restaurant, I was driving lift uber.
I was doing photography for people.
I was editing videos for people just any little way that I could make money just to make my rent to survive.
It's expensive part living around here, and I got to a point where I wasn't getting any answers back from the, you know, submit your cover letter resume like that whole, going indeed dot com and 20 different jobs a day and hear back from No. One.
So I I told myself the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, so I was like, Let's do something else And I decided to apply to 10 different modeling agencies.
That was in December, Fast forward March.
I get a response from BMG models like Okay, cool.
This one that happened and I signed a modeling contract with the MG models.
And I mean, I only did like a couple of gigs with them.
I didn't make anything crazy Boat.
It's still fact, it's all my length in G.
Yeah, One of the things they had it they put out there was for us to do, like acting improv and, like, TV, commercial classes.
And I went to a couple.
None that I had to pay for.
But then I end up going on castings all last summer where, like, the castings are very like improv.
Like where you're gonna be in front of complete strangers, just you.
And they're gonna tell you read this, act out this or do this.
And it it got me very in touch with the side of myself where, like, I just didn't care any more.
Like, a lot of people have this fear in their head.
A lot of people have this, uh, like thing in their mind that's built up against themselves.
You don't know what other people think about you.
You don't know what people perceive you as half the battle is defeating your own ego of yourself in your own thoughts of yourself and that, That kind of help me do that.
So I'm down to goto improbable you I literally don't care.
Like okay, in the room with you guys are Michael Rubin or my mom or whoever like I'm the same way all the time And it took me, I guess, you know, going through some different experiences where, like, I just I don't have that fear anymore.
Keith, I'm ready.
I'm ready to buy your book dog.
I don't want it to come out.
Yeah, I said, I said, I mean, I actually I've written down stuff in, like, journal pages over the course.
It's like the last six years and, like, I'll randomly go back and look and I'm like, I forgot about this.
I would love to write a book because the whole thing that I try and do is like inspire people and and tell people like I did this.
You can definitely do it like I don't come from any money.
I don't come from any special cir***stances like this is just a kid that was a sports fan, played sports growing up and did what people told him to do until one day, I was just like, I can't keep doing what you guys told me to do because I'm not you.
You know, I went to I went to college like I played sports in high school.
I got a scholarship, I went to college, I graduated.
I got in the corporate world.
I did that for four years and then I just was like, this isn't it like the trajectory I'm on? I'm not happy.
And it's not making me any ridiculous type of money.
I'm still struggling, so I'm like, I'm gonna struggle.
I might as well be having flying if you know, if I'm gonna be putting all this working, I might as well put it into stuff that I love.
Like basketball, like baseball, like football, like radio Brad, casting all of this stuff.
And I'm blessed to say that taking that chance and leaving that comfort zone and trying different things, like, very quickly I've been rewarded.
And, uh, I mean, it's just it's just the beginning.
Honestly, 2020 is really the second year that I've been doing all these kind of things, and this is my career the rest of my life or until I retire, like I'm extremely thankful for it.
And I want to help anyone else that thinks they could do it or, you know, is interested in it, because now is the time for it could get us in here on Arrive stream.
And it's constant that some people are checking in for, because you don't have the traditional concept we're used to.
Um, no, it's not the time to launch your platform.
Now I'm seeing a lot of people feel like joining me at eight o'clock for my livestream, and I'm like, I've never seen you do a live stream and then when I watch, it's like, Oh, they suck, They don't have anything to say Camera presence And I'm like, No, now is not the time to start figuring it out.
You should have had all of these channels and things in place, and now you turn it up because it's not gonna work out the way around like you've joined us for the Gary Proportional show.
We both love it. We both discovered.
I knew I could just tell that Keith was Gary big.
I could see it in each other.
I could feel my kit's gonna happen for you, too.
I'm gonna make you wash from Gary. Bull****.
Yeah, Yeah, I almost got a job with you.
Oh, yeah, I forgot.
But, I mean, the company, not the adventure, but it didn't feel right.
We're a little worried about the frat boy cultures.
It's That could be a bit much.
Yeah. In, like, 2009.
Like everybody coming out of college is getting jobs at the wine library for a hot second wine library.
Hey, and jersey.
Like, that's probably 30 minutes for me, maybe 45 minutes.
Um, but we're almost at the end of this stream.
Guys, I was only planning to get to like what I'm doing a pub we would like kind of directly after.
Is there, like, a 15 minute break? Possible? Be absolute.
So did you see the doc? I said you, by the way, is that not? You know what? I thought it was an old message, so that was new.
You want to do anything to it? I'm just adding stuff to it.
Your message is resonating deeply with your boy Garrett periscope, by the way, it is only a matter of time before this stream turns into, like, a self help on wellness stream.
Probably around the, like, 80 minute mark.
That'll happen pretty much every time.
Um, so for those of you who were planning for that, just make sure you stick around for 80 minutes.
Guys, that's so good for everybody.
We should start putting that out there a little bit more ahead of time.
Um, anyways, yes.
So we're not gonna watch his fourth quarter because I gotta boogie for a hot second, but, um, lose? Yeah, we leave, we lose this game.
It's a big surprise.
Um, thanks for hanging out, guys.
And we will see each other again very soon.
Say bye. Mike said pikeys.
Okay. All right.
