Hey, guys, this is your boy.
You with any stores to designing podcast.
So I put a little bit of technical difficulties there, man, but I was trying to get my system together.
Anyway, I would like to address this on Coach Point.
Um, article here is talking about Snoop Dog versus Jamal Murray.
So this is important for for Knicks fans, in particular because I'm a Knicks podcaster.
But this is important for next fans, whatever.
Because we know all about fans versus players.
I get into that a little bit later, but right now, at the at the present moment, the Nuggets actually up thirty eight to thirty six, um, in Game one of the Western Conference finals.
So I mean, like, you know, it's just important to talk about because because when you talk about N B A team, sports teams and stuff like that, like you're gonna have fans, you're gonna have fans.
And once they're gonna have fans on the other, usually the fans you know they have fun with each other, you know, going back at at each other because, you know, this is my team is your team, you know, casual stuff But when you start to get to MBA and you start getting like, um, like, superstars involved, like, you wanna talk about a snoop dog, you know, Snoop Dog, You know, he's one of the one of the bigger MBA fans, you know, you know, stars out there.
Uh, it's like a tradition with with With the Lakers, they always had Jack Jack Nicholson in the games.
You know, ever since like before magic out there he was that those games, you could just go down the line with all the different.
Um, celebrities always show up to these Laker games, but it is now.
It's of course, um, nobody else comes to mind as well, But, um, Snoop Dog and Jack Nicholson or two of the main fans has always been popping up for, like, the last.
You know, a few decades like Snoop Dog goes back all the way up into the nineties on.
Like I said, Jack Nicholson goes into like, um, like the sixties basically.
So I'm you know what I'm getting at here is that, you know, sometimes you get some friendly banter.
So you know Jamal Murray.
You know, everybody's talking about that. The Lakers.
Whatever you know, they kind of still writing off Denver.
But Denver's had.
I don't want to say Cinderella Ride, but they've had a great, um, right thus far in the playoffs.
And they actually been, um, been, um, you know, just giving teams with what they what They asked for exposing teams weaknesses and stuff like that and just taking advantage of their own strengths and stuff.
So I think I think it's, um I think it's a valid, valid fight to me because, you know, Jamal Murray said, Yo, they got the Lakers gotta defend us to, you know, so really, really, the Denver is.
It's not the underdog in this in this thing, really, really right now.
But with the momentum that Denver has the Lakers in Denver actually pretty pretty evenly matches for it's like underdog and and the favorites and stuff like that.
So, anyway, let's get into what's new.
Sis New basically was like Yo, the Lakers and not the Clippers, and I don't think he said, we're gonna beat them in in five or beat them in six something like that.
So I mean, that's that's, um that's cool, man, but you know right now.
Like I said, the score is thirty eight thirty six.
So the standard of the first quarter.
So that's why you play the games right now with the Celtics and in Miami.
You would think that the Celtics would would give them a little bit, um, off of a fight.
And they have been went to overtime in the first game in the second game, and I think they won by like like two points or whatever it's been.
It's been definitely five points that they that's how the margins men.
But they're up two to zero.
Well, you know they still have a chance to come back.
You know, I'm saying, But when when you get into into fans or whatever, like like that, That's why I appreciate Lakers fans because they want so much throughout the years.
And you know they have the right to be to be ****y.
They almost like the Yankees.
But if you want to compare like whatever, so I mean, like, the Yankees fans like I'm a Yankees fan.
Yankee fans are ****y because we were never worried about winning or losing, because we want so much that it's like you know, we've seen it all.
We wanted so muscles.
So we already had it.
So it's not like, you know, we're gonna miss it if we lose.
You know? I'm saying so.
It's never like we like.
We never have feel like we have something to lose.
You know what I'm saying? So the Lakers kinda handle the same swag like Like I mentioned Jack Nicholson.
Jack Nicholson sitting on the sideline.
He barely even says anything.
You know, Snoop Dog is the only one over.
There has really been saying thing.
And you know, you respect Snoop Dogg's Snoop Dog.
You know he's an athlete, you know, That's number one, and he's a hip hop star to so wolf.
I'm athletes and hip hop go hand in hand.
So whenever he says something you know, always holds a little bit more weight or whatever, but he's never been like the type to to really bashed players individually really go crazy, you know, cause he's been on, like on television on all the talking head shows, and he's never really came out like as I could do this like a Rob Rog, I just talking it doesn't really know what he's talking about.
He really knows the game.
He really is the Lakers fan.
He Where's the where's the Aren't you know the about to say arguably the purple and gold strongly.
You know what I'm saying? So I mean, he's a hardcore on fans.
So if he says whatever he says about this feelings for the team, and I think that you know that, you know we're not the Clippers, you know that that's that's what I'm coming from a fan or whatever.
So, anyway, you know, I just had to I had to tie it into, uh, the whole super fans superstar thing.
I had to tie that into my Knicks, man.
So I know I got my die hard hat here, so I'm gonna switch up, you know, because we're talking about another team, So gotta put another hat on there.
Uh, there you go. There goes to die hard.
So now we gotta talk about these, um, about the next man because we wanna talk about super fans.
Like, throughout the years, we haven't really had many of them, you know? So but but the onus sticks out the most is none of them.
This Spike Lee and you can put Spike Lee in the same boat of Snoop Dog because they've both been around about the same time.
I think Spike Lee came out with his first.
Like, like original movies, like I Think in the eighty three.
Uh, I forgot it was It was like some barbershop movie that he had.
And then he had another movie called She's Gotta Have.
I think that came out in eighty six and then I'm eighty eight and eighty nine is when he had school days and do the right thing so that that's his timeline from the beginning of him.
You know, before he really started making money leading up to him, getting season tickets and stuff like that, getting his own tickets and getting season tickets as time went on or whatever.
So you want to talk about like the nineties? I want to say, like the nineties, he started getting his, um, season six and stuff.
So you know, this is definitely around.
The time went on when another player that you know, that's he's famous to clash with.
I'll talk about that soon, but you know Snoop Dog.
He also came in, Came in around, you know, about, like, late eighties, Really early nineties, you know, with the chronic.
And, you know, his own solo albums were talking about ninety two.
So they both been around, you know, as far as being like being able thio get season tickets or like to be visible out there to represent fans and stuff like that with, um to defend them, you know? So they basically got the same tenure, is what I'm trying to say.
So, you know, I'm just I'm just gonna go ahead with it, man.
Richard, the whole Reggie Miller game.
Like like everybody hates Reggie Miller.
But now, hindsight years later, with all the stuff that that he is that he was able to do his career.
Uh, you know, you just got to tip your hat off him.
You gotta give him give him respect.
But But at the time, uh, there wasn't any respect when they came Thio Thio, our guy, uh, Spike Lee and and Reggie Miller.
So, um, you know, we're gonna we're gonna talk about it. It goes to YouTube.
Let's let's shout out the the, uh, page there, if that's from House of Highlights.
Right, So I'm just gonna use a little clip there.
So anyway, let me let me close it out for a second, so I mean, you know, it's that it's that choke game, you know? So how did the choke can come about? Okay, Cool.
You know, Spike Lee's, He's, um he's young at this time.
He's trying to make a big name for himself.
So, you know, he's just going out there letting everybody know that is the Knicks fan of stuff.
So anyway, I think in the beginning, they they let him sit up front.
But then I think he's paying.
He was actually paying for a seats that we find out he was like, actually paying for those on courtside seats that he that he gets anyway, regardless, in the in the beginning.
He was there because he was a big star, whatever connected with with with the people at the time in the nineties, especially with his movies, and and understand the other.
So he found himself at at half court.
I'm not going to be on at on court side, so, um you know he's younger, so he's up yelling and screaming, getting involved in the game, you know, saying like like he was at the time, it was cool because the Knicks were winning.
And it was just funny to have a do like that.
Whatever is almost, like a mascot.
So the Knicks, so up until that point actually was kind of kind of kind of cool.
Kind of funny, because I feel like, um, nobody had, like, a super fan like that, you know, because, I mean, you want to compare him to, like Drake because something in Toronto.
So when Spike was younger, he was basically like, like Drake back in those days.
So no, I'm just I'm just thinking about it.
And like I said, it was cool.
He was up, you know, waving his towel and, you know, doing his clapping and almost getting on the court and stuff like that.
You know, I guess it was kind of cool until he, um he brought it upon himself to start actually chirping to Reggie Miller.
You know, and as as well as we're gonna look at here, you know Reggie Miller, Reggie Miller eyes like the massive **** talker.
You know, he's from L.
A as well, and l a is known for that Well known for talking.
You wanna talk about Magic? Johnson's Showtime, as in Johnson and Showtime wasn't just isolated thing, you know, sometimes like like the like.
The personality of the sports team usually trickles down into, you know, pop culture, whatever.
You know, just the way that people do things, whatever.
So maybe the Showtime Lakers has something to do with Richard Miller, you know, and his personality, and just like just the show budding style that that that that those players had at that time, you know, coming into the nineties.
And so maybe they had ah saying that.
But, you know, you know, the next the next world were more like a like a rough team.
So I'm Spike Lee, kind of.
I guess he felt like he could take on that persona as well.
So he was trying to be rough with Reggie Miller.
And, you know, you could just get into this video, man.
I'm just, um, well played in the background here, and we could just see what he's going, what he's doing here.
This is the beginning of it.
Really? So you want to talk about like, the first chirping here? He's like staring down Spike Lee talking.
You know, he's not even in the game.
We just focused on Spike Lee, which is annoying.
This is the three point shot from the corner that he had.
This is the one would actually turned around and started cursing them.
And And if I'm not mistaking, I think he had his wife sit next to him, which was even crazier.
So, you know, just looking at the game.
This is when he got got to steal.
I think that some workmen workman, I got filed his in his under the shot in the corner.
You know, he was like, one of the greatest shooters at the time.
And you always find him open in the corner.
I went, Wait until you get to the choke name.
Looks like a Spike Lee with his hands in the air.
That was that He was known for that, you know, it was it was cool up until this happened.
So this this on part of the clip here, where first on chokes like that and I watched because he grabs his nuts, you know, they're not going to show it.
And I guess in the highlights, whatever.
He actually grabbed his nuts, you know? So, I mean, that's, like, the most disrespectful thing that you could do to To somebody And Spike Lee.
Um, you know, you could talk all that junk all you want, but I mean, the guys grabbing his nuts with your just when he calls him Bishop, He calls them a ***** right there.
Look, there goes his wife right there.
You can't say anything.
You know, all that.
All that said that you were talking, you know? You know, you can't back it up now, you know n b a game we're going to fight to do or whatever he called him.
Look, this is they beeped it out, But, I mean, he called him a *****, right right in front of his wife.
He grabbed his nuts in front of his wife, You know? You know, I don't I don't even wanna wanna look at it anymore.
Let me, um let me extra salt because, um, you know the thing about it, man.
It's like you just can't do that.
You know, I I mentioned errors.
You know, Showtime Lakers gave birth to people like Richard Miller.
Right? So now Reggie Miller's in the NBA? Um, the Knicks gave birth to people like Spike Lee, the young Spike Lee, when he was yelling and screaming on the sidelines, doing whatever and then Reggie Miller basically check them, you know? So you know, I think I think the n b A is kind of far away from that type of thing because the players is just not like that anymore.
You know, like these guys are now.
They're the LeBron babies.
LeBron is the is the is the king right now.
So LeBron is, um, you know, he's gave birth to all these young guys.
All these young guys are basically diplomats.
What I'm saying, like like Jamal Murray real cool.
You know, he's a super superstar on that team.
You wanna talk about joke? A joke is the same way.
Uh, take a look at basically every star in the N B A.
Everybody just chill.
Even like a do like like Jimmy Butler.
He had that little running and with the Timberwolves when he was cursing and all the stuff that's kind of like uncharacteristic oven, you know? But, you know, all these guys are like like Kobe babies.
You know, when you talk about Kobe there, Kobe babies there, LeBron babies, These These two guys are stoic figures.
Whatever, guys, I don't usually get rattled Thio too easily, and they carry themselves in a certain way.
And you know, that's what these players are doing.
They're emulating that, that that type of thing.
So I mean, like, when Snoop Dog says something, you're not gonna really get a response that you that that that, like Spike Lee would give or something, You know, something? That that what would have happened in the nineties or whatever, You're not gonna get that response because it's just not that that type of ever.
So you know, my hats off to the Jamal Murray, because I know you're gonna say what you're gonna say, Thio.
You know, within within reason, you know, because you don't want to get into tampering or get yourself pull out of the game because the comments that you made, especially thio like a like a fan on the side of doesn't really have anything to do with anything.
You know you go out there and play the game.
So after the game is over, then you could talk to jump.
So, I mean, it's just cool, man.
I just I just wanted to mention the whole Spike Lee thing, you know? You know, Thio talk about Spike Lee, man, I'm not a Spike Lee fan.
You know, I actually like his movies.
A lot of his movies are pretty good iconic, like you wanna talk about, do the right thing.
School days, pretty iconic.
There's always been like, like, little scenes, stuff like that that that that was never cool with me.
You know, they they always always throw some kind of like, um, like, uh, controversial scene, especially something happened to do with with women, whatever, you know.
And they even had his his sister naked and one of his movies, Whatever.
So I'm not a fan of that type of, you know, that type of shock stuff, you know, tell your story, tell your story and then, you know, do it.
You don't have to explain women just to sell the movie.
You know what I'm saying? So that's that's like another subject.
Whatever But I'm not.
I'm not really a fan of Spike Lee and his whole antics of him being a super fan.
And I don't call him a super fan and then, like Like, you're gonna fast forward now because we're gonna talk about the doorman thing really quick.
So, like the Dolan, um, situation? Well, like he was going through the wrong entrance for years, You know, nobody said nothing to him, you know? So then it comes to, ah, point where hey gets greeted by security, and it's like your spike, You gotta come off elevated when they want you to go to use the other exit.
You know, I'm saying I'm quite I'm quite sure they didn't.
They didn't disrespect them.
Especially been going through there the whole time.
They just following All these guys are working what I'm saying.
So they take the elevator up to the next floor because he's like your **** you guys.
I'm not getting off the elevator Anyway.
He goes up to the next floor.
He's greeted by more security, said little spike.
You gotta go to the other exit. Whatever.
So, anyway, he doesn't You know what I'm saying? So they any anyway, somebody escorted him to see so fast forward Dolan himself actually went down there and tried to apologize and explain to him what was going on. Whatever.
So everything should have been good.
But then he goes to first take.
You know what I'm saying? Not for for me as a Knicks fan.
If you If you're gonna go to first, take on ESPN and start just chirping like that, then um then then you're done to me.
You're done because Stephen A. Smith.
He calls himself a Knicks fan, but he's not for us, you know.
I'm saying, Oh, Max Kellerman is another guy.
He hates the Knicks, you know.
He's just, um, the whole rhetoric.
These guys got millions of dollars based on on that batch of the Knicks.
So he went on this show tow bash the Knicks even more to bash the owner on the only because he got his feelings hurt because these are like rich people problems.
You know what I'm saying? Like like he was going like Like I said, he's going through the wrong exit for the longest time he like. He knows everybody.
So Spike Lee's there or I'm big in life.
I could just go into this exit when I feel like it, and Oh, hey, I got my cousin today.
Hey, I got my best friend today.
I got this dude I grew up with today, you know? You know, and the guys just let him in, You know, that's that's the way that there has been.
But I guess you know, after after nine eleven, you know, years past or whatever, now we're gonna we're gonna talk about terrorist attacks and all this other stuff, you know, maybe maybe they want to clean up with what they've been doing.
Or maybe they have a different experience now that they want to try with their with their stars.
You know, they make sure that the day that they, you know, maybe tally up all the stars.
But I know Spike Lee.
It's kind of like above that now, because that that's what you know.
Just the cir***stances have made it.
But, you know, you still gotta gotta follow protocol, you know, just go through the other exit.
Maybe maybe they have a surprise for you.
Maybe they want you.
Maybe it's easier for them to do their things because a lot of people that that they're in charge of that on the other side, You know, maybe they don't They don't have to read the, you know, the resource is and stuff like that to Thio, to go from one side of building to the next, just just accommodate Spike Lee.
You know, I'm saying so things changed, man.
You know, uh, maybe they might have a new manager, maybe.
Um, this guy, Steve, stop coming in.
Maybe he has an idea to To to really, like, greet the fans, stuff like that.
But, I mean, you close the door on that and you're going first taken and you do your rant.
You know, he really was ranting like a big woman like old woman.
You know, Spike Lee.
He's like, what, sixty three now? So maybe he needs, like, a testosterone shot or whatever.
You know, I don't wanna get into distance, Spike Lee, and then that way, you know, I'm saying, but I mean, I just thought that was wrong.
So it just takes away from the from the whole rival because the rivalry thing, having a having a super fan in that way, that they love the team that much.
That's great for the for the on, for the brand what I'm saying.
But then when somebody does that and betrays the whole thing, the whole reason why you even they're the whole reason why anybody even cares about you is because of the Knicks, and you're gonna do that.
You know what I'm saying? So, personally, if I owned the Knicks, you know, I would I would have banned Spike Lee, you know.
But of course, they making it to the media firestorm and, like, of course, bike did that to himself is well what I'm saying.
So, you know, I just I just don't want to hear any more of that.
Because I know the Knicks are eventually gonna start playing games, and we're gonna talk About what? Like probably like February.
You know, they are going to try to get it in for Black History Month, no doubt, because, you know, black people of basketball, you know what I'm saying? Got to get it in before Black History Month, you know, so we could tie it into the whole black lives matter and make a big think about it, right so everyone could be excited about the MBA anyway.
That's another That's another podcast for another day.
But, you know, I just hope I hope that's the end of it.
Because, like I said with Snoop Dog, read the comments a little little on past the comment about what Jamal Murray said about, you know, that the Lakers gonna have to defend them.
You know the Lakers on the Clippers.
I mean, you know Lakers on the Clippers, which is true, but Denver still has, um, has, ah, good team and Joe kicks and you know it's going to give the Lakers fits.
Let's check out the score again to like Like I said, the game is actually in progress right now.
They should be still in the second quarter right now.
The Lakers seemed to be pulling away in the second quarter.
Uh, wow, sixteen, the one in the in the second quarter.
Now I don't expect that Teoh continue, but judging from all lake, you see me on LeBron teams.
They always wait for a point in the game when they when they can pounce on you and they could just jump, you know, try to start running and try to put throw the ball down your throat and take your heart from you.
So I doubt I doubt that the Denver is going to get, um, really, like, blown out like that.
We'll see, you know, because we still got a lot of basketball to play, but, um, yeah, man, it's fun being the next fan, man.
You know what I'm saying? You know, I got this podcast got my stuff going on here.
I got all the colors and stuff like that.
Orange and blue isn't my my blood.
And looking at it on the screen, having orange and blue like that, it gives me It makes me feel good.
You know what I'm saying? So I know Lakers fans feel the same way.
I know Clippers fans feel the same way with their color schemes and stuff like that.
So, you know, it's it's so funny.
Funny games, man.
Until you, you know, you cross the line, you know? Well, basically what Spike Lee is now known for, and it's gonna be infamous for, you know, if he if he doesn't doesn't really stop.
So anyway, this is even any stones to the Dinos podcast just wanna wanna chat a little bit about super fans and NBA stars.
It's really more about Snoop versus on Jamal Murray and good luck Thio, the Denver Nuggets.
Like I said, I don't give it.
I don't give a **** about either team.
You know, I just like basketball and the matchups right now.
Even talk about the Lakers in Denver.
It's a great matchup.
And Miami versus the Boston Celtics.
A great matchup is Well, so, um yeah, I'm gonna let you guys get back to your game.
If anybody was tuning in here on SportsCastr, this is a SportsCastr exclusive podcast right now.
So, um, you know, get back to the game.
And I see you guys in the next one, man once again, as we do in the podcast, Eat with any star.
