I know him and honestly as the guy that I first saw her in Oakland. And it was me and a real estate agent that met a -- what nineteen year old Chris Webber as he got off the plane. And nobody else -- put Golden State or is -- that time where it's told me that maybe they didn't quite realize. Just what an asset that they had acquired from the Orlando Magic for Penny Hardaway and 31 round draft picks. Chris -- I'm doing good doing. I'm good I'm good. So I I catch us up on and you are on all the different things I know you've been involved in. Late. It's you don't suffer NBA TV TNT. I know at one point you were doing a radio show he had that's still going. He had no I don't do -- regular short seriously anymore ball. I've taken out and turner to production on knew it really good friend of mine culture -- trio were. Both local -- entrant and in. Pretty -- productions and we're not -- stories on the one interception their lives in the characteristics between for each month after celebrity's. And issues that affect the -- the financial world really excited -- Some of the lawsuit we're working on true true. Talk about an issue. So about during the radio an -- -- the -- very -- Production company repeated over and that's been on being on the work on the most the last couple years. Okay and you also have. You have. The you're African. Exhibition. Or exhibit I'm not sure how to quite to scrub to describe it and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We'll worry about -- -- do like are -- low peoples because all about results this Comerica history collection. And leader does everything from mom the first floor covered by an American woman the circuit book written about what improvements we -- And seventeen birdie there and all the way and true world. No discussion concerns are just two years ago one in the final sushi people four under and -- -- -- in American history collection and shut votes probably -- in the Detroit and it travels. From city should be earned poultry juices aren't capable Asian. All ages all demographics proceeded somebody -- haven't had a really bad and you know what cardinal. -- -- can take from these people life it's perseverance you know such is so hard work that you look we got a different looking trick out of their a lot of experience she. -- had you looked over cultural or contribute inspirational but some that you struggle focused a lot in the future and you're not always used in the number of history literature but it is -- -- look extra each of those so create interest are used to it. Proceeded. Modern cooking and -- the Charles Barkley Jordan no more structure than them. They just have to -- off all of them enough stuff to do what they have -- the most -- inspired and challenged collection which are absolutely you're. So and so you have you have the exhibit you have. The production company you're doing me -- and the TV analysts feel like okay so so where does all these roads lead to where where where is where is Chris Webber had it. Well you don't podium. -- -- the world that are part is as far as that everything is coming out of everything's come up something that. Has been born in New York club has been developed so you know there's clogged mine. -- problem of the so more close. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- many people don't know that open the books and lets them know what so Gorin on the computer much and lost someone close to realize -- complexion to do about cost and closed. You know the -- insult you can make -- -- -- -- are sort of getting used to -- cool aside from a -- usually you're either write stories. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Told our important history is no carpet in there. Is because of our average production coveted repeater is not a great movies a -- of particular group will be our batters is just -- -- -- not a sexy thing. And sort you know I don't I don't know -- -- -- notre. These -- such as these are things that are in my way and -- charge should become sort of not not these are called. And Everett is a blessing but I would -- analysis but it was about boats so -- destroy our country girl in. Scoop from the Carcillo being given an interest sort of for the in the year and down -- the -- so you know hopes for Julio. There's a lot more to come expression within. I haven't slower or that kind of TV local doctor Cherokee sport wonder. But -- well you know one of the real reasons that I wanted to reach out to you catch up with -- because I am I'm watching. TNT the other night and David Lee. Of the Golden State Warriors has and I had a double double in thirty plus points or whatever and and Shaquille O'Neal says. He's the wc. W.s and -- -- And nines is that white Chris Webber and I onus fell off my how I mean look. I look and by all I'm taking nothing away from David Lee but I. Hold the phone here okay -- -- about. Five foot five time all star or target and just as many sixer. I'm -- five or six time all NBA. Rookie of the year. Rebounding champion. I mean. We got one double double with thirty plus points and now he's Chris Webber come on stop. Cooler out for the long road David James certain views and look at all our home. That's gonna be the worst nickname ever go. Who knows what is yours for the in the lead I was like outcome a -- or don't you know cause me like okay you're voted. Is cool where. Raymond how's how about you you -- yeah I mean you're very gracious. If I were you I would have I was just. In I think you're wearing -- wearing glasses. Okay here's how I would like -- one of the glass is Darlington. Yeah you know what it is and and that is very obviously and so -- Michael QB in the Olympics -- just throw the -- at all because. Obviously -- let's talk about David he was really good and nobody chosen in the -- so I think tackles Cha dubious privilege that I would get Shell oh. Which you know it was a lot for government and their movements. -- -- they haven't. You know Golden Eagles because I have a different career so I'm like well be -- so if you like similar -- -- -- -- -- -- so -- -- does so well. Just you're gonna it will all spent each other partners what you got the -- -- sort of person you know. He took the Eagles with limited usage of me nobody between me about -- -- -- him. I also this in this this is. Sincere in that. It's a difficult I don't know that people understand how difficult it is to walk the line where you want to be honest. You wanna tell the truth about what you're seeing the same time. I mean at least for me I'm thinking about when I'm talking about guys it's like. 01. It are they gonna get the full context of how I explain what I'm saying or I mean I almost see the headline and and it's gonna -- and you know short cut. To where it becomes this and and I'm thinking that guy's gonna see that and it's not what I meant and it almost. You don't want to edit yourself from telling the truth I feel is an obligation not to. To sugarcoat things but at the same time. They sometimes you know you you your Cox is the fact that this could blow up in -- something much bigger than you meant it to be. You walk the line I think. As well as anybody in terms of being honest in. In beings. You know having a critical lie in the same time. Recognizing. Or acknowledging how hard. The job is and I'm wondering what what how do you go about that what informs you or your thinking when you're talking about -- You know world posting this kind -- into remote and you know Luke stretching after your career to. You know have the rights and opinions and you know truck went service it's -- play with god I've learned a lot so. You know it is it is tough walk that line you know like -- guy like Westbrook. This party. No resistance -- Westbrook is my favorite player. But it was certainly talk about Westbrook you make ago like. Because I'm only talking about not from my fair Porter who could market your view our membership we liked what he -- and -- we should elect Obama. Something new we have -- Iran as well under control. A cigarette I think I think Westbrook. Can -- the ball he could score. He's my favorite players have been Rondell and the whole India. Put him that was afford turnovers and because of my expectations could be in the best economy on the call like all the names on this and I'm not. You know you can't just say these things lightly so commuters say he's a -- And the seed has potential and and then to see as far as young -- like a big man she's passionate go to that anger she saw inside the oval. But I have to say you know. Yeah -- two less turnovers and you know have a lot of respect us still think. -- seat isn't is good enough but there's a better without partly book if you would give us all -- forever episode certainly the best at Portland regional. I get a little Vargas when you can't like you should explain your whole position and understood is going to be short -- But you know I just put it on the players too I never got usually obvious undercover combat what anybody talk to Bob Butler. Election about motives and I thought you don't know what to talk about Villanova took a course. By about a person when you when you're just things that I don't think you could throw he. Play hard what you're you don't know our development for the first part of it and make you pick a player on the lot or what these other characters are crucial boasting such -- -- judgment. Well they're closer Dwight Howard doesn't run the floor party -- Throttle to about the ultimate -- and the Florida that the charger when he's on the -- all so distraught obviously better than could never be personal and that was our whole family talk about the moment of the situation and not. You know about something else for a little bit career finger without the -- Have you ever had -- had somebody come back at you. With something or. Where. Either they -- it was short cutter taken out of context or are the ages. They let you know hey yeah I'm I'm not down with what you said. I don't know none of them over the last year or something that would perk developed we usually shirt shorts and I don't know control. Relies junior. Yeah you -- -- reloaded and Betemit -- Take a step backwards somebody showed some -- of basketball bowl. -- so -- walk the world bar because. Pom -- always available. At WR derby notebook a moment immediate source not out of court shall. Remember -- take extra factors not basketball -- not -- hard sort. Our I have to remember that people are going to. I have to remember that people are going to take things personally and you have to give him a bit of sort of a belt so. Wherever for the governorship which rested were very far -- stretches -- but it got good ball anymore. To quote true that's for sure extra about a possible but the -- you -- to let them their religious thought about Lowell -- survey that insurance thing. You know -- like this game is a warrior it is what it is and there's such probably should traditional. I think crucial times you know. The best or -- to take everything personal. Yeah you know and a probable part of the -- got inning and it's a bust that are getting longer you know you don't start of so I don't I got good looks at let our league you know because I used to use anything out -- portion of the once under the thumb definition of either because there's just a true. -- -- -- Via -- and I'm sure you remember but it is one of the other other things that I remember and having covered view. When you first came into the league. And then actually we both wound up with -- in in Washington for years well. It is with the the first playoff series. Against Phoenix and I always think this when I see you. On TNT. And it was when you went. Behind the back and on Charles. And you you said something to him afterward. And you later told me you it's that you whispered. I would be just like you. And I always think of that when I see the two of you now on TV and you know obviously he wasn't on TNT at the time in. And I don't know if you thought that his flaky he was gonna take the path that view is gonna take but I look at guys and go. You know and so he's. You you're you're not paying -- the everything -- in a lot of ways on and off the court a quarter after you you became everything the Charles. The talk was between him and I'm wondering how you. How you look at that now in that comment and and how things have evolved since that. You overcome a little bit different as far as number of true road journal and actually copy official spoke book. The -- quote was I -- now. Oh yeah in my effort. And. This is is that this is your first. Appeared to right. Look loaded and watched it wasn't. But it Washington it was you know our Serbia after the -- -- -- well what was evident most. -- -- -- Because of the great reporter school shall bark because America to meet -- when I met Barkley under market make -- -- like uncertainty. Teach your children what are being brought it was destroyed everybody broken off from the vertical of people argued the destroyer clearly not -- albeit the -- Actually just I was just probably seventy are we way told me. Embarked in an army occupied when he shortening. So it was my first a moment that we all -- -- In the book is such you know. But what -- Fatah allowed and as a person that will be mother brother who you know it was crucial cool there's just as. -- wanted to use up the friendship like when the last series one of the best people on the law obviously being -- so. Supportive about proposed -- that I am because -- followed him a lot bigger and Jordan. The magic control problem Barca on the original is nobody's put -- Kicker I would like I am you know I'll see you later it will have to -- -- -- -- probably about whatever you have a long way to go over. You know again he's Samardo tomorrow marks also threw well from the game in international sport to different parts of the -- You know personally he's one of those people who -- the other competitor and -- putrid there's a wonderful you don't have to throw every. Bar and have a trust. That type of person who -- the governor of good people of our usual. You know you you know it could just be yourself and also people find out those that don't it doesn't matter -- he's he's always been I've always. You commit a positive example for myself and caller to a community. I think you opened the -- subtle pick a really -- -- -- -- think he opened the doors for a lot of people. You know to do it because you opened the door figured out with a pretty open their books do not the championship. And still -- -- as much -- the -- bigger -- which. You know so he could open the door government following -- -- you got to -- -- a little more credit than that. Chickened out there -- sort of a camp probably this feed into -- someone posted it -- might not follow their style of I'm not good -- -- stops. So so it's and be clear the the -- and you now you said that after the don't. No I don't know I'd sit down at Washington and not that good -- shot. Yeah. Aaron on October 3 behind it but I don't know on the -- cook. Very little bit about double old Wembley of course we report could -- the players are Duke -- -- an original post tournament under Jordan. -- Montreal club or the role I would doubt that more to go to work and public school. There's so it was a big joke lower body and how we play -- Barkley so you know the best part of best part -- -- certainly. Is that they keep fuel. Underground -- -- -- favorite in the same country. So so if you could imagine what he's good you know put in the game a prototypical pocket computer -- favorite player. The -- beat Oakland you can you can shoot so we have the guys that you don't particularly like that. There's a lot don't promote the tomorrow boys are what brought the process of being prepared repeat extra. Now work in you know. Or whatever I don't know I was -- -- -- god not that type that the willow to Israel that was or cloud Bob burns is available. Rebel against what your your role as mr. straight. I can I can only imagine -- you know in and out. What ultimately. I have to say. And no offense to it's a -- but I exists in terms of what you bring. Being funny. You know you again and to -- year your five tool guy in terms. You can be funny you can be analytical. You can give other people room to state their opinions you'll agree disagree doesn't get. You know and and they can even you know the way you handled the WCW. You know -- not seriously some other guy as -- -- -- -- -- -- you -- you. The -- If you throw one like that it sag and he's he's not. He's not taken that in stride. So. I mean. I was surprised when he and did a little disappointed when TNT made that move. And we're seeing less of you on the TNT said and more review on the NB ATV says how do you. Tell tell us tell us where you stand on that and how that might have. How are you know most of Europe is you're not allowed to be doesn't start off actors wouldn't do or you're not well and good work for the world leader or -- tree. You know -- just thank god because 4000 players in the world machines a lot of the a lot of -- neutral regional. -- -- British -- which -- -- too -- to be a part of it and not wanting -- through -- depression. Put him on the block well so obviously -- have never been -- a mother at that two weeks true -- -- on the Buick -- He took a lot of -- of what we go to work to retire here -- poker table. Would love to -- -- It all on our first got to thank you for the support and on this summer and you know it was it was a tough decision whether combo article. On. Are a lot of people bunker. Certain you know we want to do more we don't -- -- Must do more to do much -- W about little and oh we don't opportunities present themselves. And down -- and just trying to get done. All. Original norm group the number and I'm not your better in the report -- Brooklyn really work part of what straight from the Thursday. And I wash -- cardinal history and don't if you saw broke on the other. But I have a long way to go all the beer or Cutler Dick Stockton in Boca Juniors sort have to get better let alone. You know I'll you know you know definitely understand we're probably latitude you have -- It offers a political about what people in our closer courses would you like -- know what a new chapter for you. On market -- our producers. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I would change the world and Rome hope can be -- to do and you know to to do what finish on here. And -- it's not just to work better alternative another opportunity. So far and will wrap up with this. So for the people in the Bay Area and I and I include Sacramento. Along with with Golden State and and in no way you experiences. You know the ups and downs goods and that in Washington as well. What's the if there's one thing hasn't won in elementary and all that day. That. Stands out to use. Either the pinnacle or the of the symbolizing. Point. For your basketball career -- what would you say that it is. This is a different world for what will actually were critical in Oakland. Yeah. Or are just across the board I mean maybe it was something in Sacramento maybe it was -- was something you went through in Washington I'm just jury is you. You had such full. Almost in some ways volatile experiences in all three places hot and you know the the highest of the highs in some ways. And and and some of the -- and I'm just wondering when you when you step back when you when you step back afterward and you looked at it. UN. Man that was the that did the the point that just kind of jumps out you win. That's that's when it comes to mind. And icy slope was. Oakland has so much luggage or -- vote was -- future. So. I remember being in Oakland we've -- -- -- -- were building at all. And remember. You know the rest. On the on the losses socialist. -- of the load that but I'd go out and it was when I first got there. Well that aren't popular advocate with Croatia total. And then as -- to Oakland and that are ignorant just like Detroit which is a great thing being in the who -- ignorant what you think obviously we we don't care where we're you know we're it was a little weird. Connecticut viable option show he would like to go to him block a monopoly on. We we weren't and we we we weren't true. Through -- is -- a lot of them. True outside after the game which is saying about things in the trees and just talk. And I've been -- because like. You know. I don't like like maybe it was because defense -- because -- removed. Fame is not in the arena we have an extra emotional -- -- a lot like the parking lot. France -- peculiar that Mexicans white people black people at risk. Like things I've never experienced in the hole before. -- Resist -- -- cant explain it with energy and it was it was pure smoke rookies is like. It would result the you know like -- always left when racial -- rookie year agreement that joke about the shot that jumps on the Cleveland its -- to. That's how would you like in the world well -- you. So you know Bogota a speaker Bob because -- -- know physically your teammates you know the wins or -- of the fans in the Utah and so. All others in all of beer and a rookie and -- -- -- -- -- -- and a throughout my. I was traded to address about it not at all so I don't know I was traded. Get to a party at 9 o'clock discovered murdered your group on the floor an -- -- historical. The effect of the people's bit tentative -- they make you. Remember you know the rest of Bravo Oakland to be this is no disrespect our commitment probable cause controversy. Commissioner bud you know certain things -- some of the best center. -- -- Our -- Oakland Berkeley and Oakland make the most of -- one of the best job. You know why all those people knew that you were going to be traded because there was this guy named -- you crew is working for the San Jose Mercury news and. He's actually threw it up there it was a bit bigger but a lot of them are calling it like it looked really -- economy -- -- and let the capability. Yet I know let's have a fair pay do you do you keep in touch with any of those guys have you talked it's breeder. Billy go or any of those guys. Condemned man like all the guys not play with such talks once in awhile look at short weeks here and you have would've been -- or not servicemen were just -- because -- while we're we're explore our view on -- should. And you know obviously w.'s VW's you know you should say it is so -- a lot of my material stolen select players. Most of our beloved. -- but they've listened thank you so much. Her for taken time and joining us here on my podcast here for CS and it was it was terrific to catch up with you in I wish you all the best known Florida hope somewhere down -- being we'll get -- this again.
