-- -- program. My name is Derek when this is AM succeed WRKO Boston's talk station. You can join us at 6172666868. You also text us at 66 -- the number to join the program 617. Q 666868. -- review on here for the next hour so obvious else in the coming in at 3 o'clock I believe is that correct or -- That is correct the army also program beyond 3 o'clock the legendary -- Nelson has been on the air for. -- actually my -- apparently you bought an obvious plan. I don't know witness but all are obvious is that -- in radio in Boston referred forever since my great Atlanta Corey he was on the air like -- Ginsburg was like -- and studios like playing with like sound effect props and -- who Ginsburg was sizzled. Boston DJ who had all these like he would do was shows. And he would have this latter that had all -- is eating -- have boards and things fact that so they had in his latter with all -- -- he had this like warning chimes in like a flute in the I had a water washboard he just like all these things -- he's making all these -- records the same time is Boston's old man -- kind of like it on that screen it is not great history of Boston radio book and trying to remember the -- she Donna -- she wrote this great book and history -- Boston radio. -- Ginsburg's on the cover with this whole set -- these -- microphone like hanging down from the -- on radio that'll style it's got history hard up. -- Blood I I we talked about the -- earlier. The that you Boston but I have to address the Miami Heat. They -- of different variety. Arguably I don't know if the a huge huge almanac in -- from the -- reporter Matt wild and from the freedom -- foundation. By heat are most hated team in America. And well I mean now that now that they called the finals -- high and he idol. I guess it's that the torture them but. There are horrible and their. They're there they're like the earliest elect early 2000 yankees they just. They're bought and it and they they finally won one and now now they're super -- network Miami's sites and no one else is happy nobody's happy at. TV people the Miami even realizing have a basketball team and do you think people Miami you know they have that's -- team does like notoriously horrible thing ends and South Florida. I'm Janette no idea and second most liked basketball team in Florida -- good after the Merrill you don't actually it might be the third I mean I don't after the Florida Gators again. Are there are there of that any sports fans and I mean -- look -- look the Sox playing the Marlins in the does does stadium completely empty. -- has this problem of being a transient place and your and you don't have. All of deep. Well all a deep well I'll look of a long time hardcore. Fans like you do in the northeast and -- Boston Philly New York. Also that a lot of a lot of our communities -- go to towards more more national actually famous team concept is also true that a lot of inner communities tend to gravitate towards nationally famous teams and also to gravitate towards certain players particularly you do -- a it didn't and you look at why the Red Sox the Yankees cubs are so popular in Dominican keep the cardinals are popular Dominican communities. Well look at the prominent Dominican players. That populated those rosters for so many years there's a reason for the Yankees are so popular and and Panama on it's not just because of the an -- and white hats because Mariano Rivera's -- the most dominant closer. Issue but. -- how did that it back to its of the heat just being just so reviled in the sky and I just can't think of you very -- early 2000 yankees. I really can't think of a such are up whole arising figure. That outside of politics like LeBron James. Yet Tebow to a degree -- but. But but late in politics historically it is there's very clear cut side you have liberals yet conservatives you have Democrats -- Republicans you have people that take these. Act like there's just act legacy -- -- world over and over microscopic effort this is between the two parties but there are clearly defined sides. You know people seek good and bad but in sports. I've never seen somebody just creates such. And create such I divide like LeBron James Blake -- it -- like it was heavily -- 7545. He just does wrong I mean that. That whole the whole moved to Miami was just handled so poorly. -- army dot com did some really it was all about that's. They and they ran that that video that that -- -- -- up everywhere on the Internet where they contrasted the Boston Big Three era to the Miami -- air introductions. And it was very deferring in Boston where is in in Miami -- fireworks in -- like. I. Did it and make big players in the stomach every. Good night a rock concert and how popular that outlaws not -- not hurting the toilets or a couple of they even they I don't remember which player was but it was a retired older player they're like and what have you come play point -- -- -- Yeah -- got up. Just -- jerks they just unpleasant whereas. Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett Ray Allen they have their own little weird like crazy things going. But that anything's possible. But I think about after he won before and what it's like you know we got a lot approves bill and -- we still need a lot of supporting cast players and Kevin Garnett is you know argue arguably. One of the best power forwards at all time and he'd like you know week. -- It. It whereas you know and beat Chris boxed -- I think so ethical and what he had in the overall pretty well compared to -- and LeBron James but he sure became a secondary. God in this in this Big Three particularly in this playoffs or not it's not stated Chris Bosh -- -- -- -- -- he was out for stated period and you in the way they present this in the way packages their public their pub there there. Public relations team really just sort -- made it. LeBron and wade. And then blocked the sort off the side -- in Boston. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- prominent thing but -- -- get the cuts are a lot of really nice and acres. But. He's the -- to ESPN play in. Low in the -- I look at sports -- -- sports media and look at ESP NL and a lot of ways that as the Huffington Post of -- at the Drudge Report. Of sport state shall rise in centenary of I think our argument they weren't -- -- I'm. All hello no I in New York Times -- -- these sets the agenda for for for for for the country in a lot of ways. But. But I don't think they dominated in the way that ESPN does for sports I don't think there's any. Entity in a country that sexy Jennifer sports and Sports Radio like ESPN and I just. I understand the difference is between sports media and other media but it's almost. I look is it sometimes I'm -- myself. It's embarrassing the coverage they do from Dave the -- -- culvert. Comparable broad -- the mighty people LeBron James -- almost made it to like this. This godlike figure that transports and reality television that's that's what it and they it is very good job axles very well. And you know we all the decision and we also talked about we all watched it why they all watched it I went to a Arnold as -- time yeah. I watched it at a friends house I'm like oh god I wish I had another they they. -- where they drag LeBron out. They drag they have this this running thing of the broad. In different jerseys like what he would look like in -- bulls Jersey in fact I just. Next driven knicks blew a Q is there -- -- -- the Dorchester reporter is different standard I guess in sports journalism than there is another -- there it is there a different. Different way is is -- is is it just treated differently. Well I mean I I think and I I Heller -- sports reporters immunity there there very versatile. Reversible -- able to -- gonna cover a lot of things the they compare that it you know to covering from covering sports suit covering 9/11 which is. What happened you know. So you know can finesse this is -- I having big east television sports journalism I just now I mean having barely cover that in and mostly is watching sports night. That's about the -- of mind -- that -- yet it's. You know I I I I. I -- -- in a position to really criticize to much you know I think I think there is kind of as you said that a reality television aspect to it now. You know so they wanna get the ratings or whatever and and you know I'll I was prime on the few people in the US who didn't watch. The decision you know the -- here committee on on C span at that -- and so you know -- And -- like ESPN influence the NBA who have influence the arrests and -- the Celtics. Have a whole another issue about whether the NBA's fixed. I I don't know Jim Rome by the way -- -- to point out asked David Stern news on aaron's program. I'm mr. commissioner is yet he angle of the hole. T and you -- far the most people of god he -- of the NBA lottery was fixed Saturday de Paris auto which is why have you stopped beating your wife. Which is strange because he doesn't have -- even though I have a love hate relationship with Jim Rome. He has no history of domestic abuser and yet she seems to live a pretty boring life was a great answer what. I'm great great response to that was immigrant he was offended that even asked the question. He passed a note that people think that it's fixed but you look at you look it would happen NC game two. The Easter the -- the Celtics and I believe it was like vice president of something in the NBA after the game -- said. That they blew five or six calls in favor. That's that means that the Celtics when Ray Allen gets -- gets a technical foul and does he get parking ticket that's a bit of a stroke. And I mean -- that attack on doc was ridiculous I mean they're. There was very badly officiated at the NBA has been badly officiated since the Jordan and I believed -- Crawford was the bad three matters now. Mr. -- your legacy. Just -- That history Saturn get to some to go back to the to the down to the most hated. Most hated players in the league always we've got you know a New Orleans when the draft lottery which of course produces the -- -- -- speculation and date maybe the lottery was fixed annuity you appreciating good conspiracy theory. Is much at the next guy. Was the fix in for the lottery. You know I have to its system that. I'll I'll give you the easy one though. And a statement shame on you for asking. Identity yeah how how dare you suggest something that. It will but thinking about Prius vehicles backed by the way it goes back to George goes back to Georgetown in the New York Knicks an exact it goes back to Patrick Ewing and the New York Knicks and that draft lottery. Where people thought they pulled that one of the gamble hosted to get an out so that don't Ewing would go to the Nixon. I do want reset up to. Some of the most room above the most of what -- like most reviled people in sports in this country because they do to sports plays a huge role in our culture how. Double the bronze -- piled hold Haiti and things changed because it you can no longer ago. On this unbelievably over hyped athlete who people tried to make like he was and the next Jordan. Never never and he's won it's of that that he's got that monkey off his back now. He's left he's got that that weight is off the shoulders he -- and the bucket and but who replaces that national sports bill and figure hope not Kevin Durant has mantle of that guy predator is I hate. Really hate to have a drink -- he wasn't blown he wasn't on the cover Sports Illustrated like seventeen. I just I don't. 188. -- for such like he was so easy to hate. So easy to -- it's not. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I didn't I think -- awful I thought it was -- these plans for -- hometown team had to do it and affect the Cleveland Qaeda is not doing so well I was certain I was written for Dwyane Wade notables to it's it's nice to see them explain their own. We have these. These I think the villains we haven't sports are so different ones of politics. Because the stakes are so different summit it's -- it's not a series but we almost make it out to be. More seriously hawk or retreat politics let's seriously I think that's probably tortured BT which we politics like it's -- sport. And it's not that I mean you know it shouldn't be racking up points and I know LeBron James. LeBron did you are champions shows disrespect. I just don't. That is that's a Steve Porter and for obvious -- and that's Stephen A Smith then down. What's his name he's. The old -- I -- I. Thought it -- -- I'll skip Bayless and yet. I. There but we don't have a national whipping boy Roddy did it but at that point that so disliked -- talk we talk about Tebow Tebow. Divide the country but he wasn't. He wasn't it wasn't so we're caught where was -- everybody was really Jessica's funeral had gotten -- he had -- aside but there were so many people that were rooting for him as well with the -- it was really just Miami and the whole country -- against the and some TVs -- like. He's great at people that -- star star chasers aren't -- and compare the team you couldn't -- the cable guy I think hey I just think I think he's kind of annoying he's knowing he's not what you're this deep -- -- -- from the problem I guess not in this instance yes. I -- what Tebow because I thought he was he was so unconventional. I'll ask you about you not remember I want. As I thought I was sorry because I thought the story was great is as this. This guy everybody wanted to fail came -- which is winning games the most like ridiculous ways possible I just can't wait until New York City corrupts totally restock our. But he's gonna get -- your third -- -- it's gonna be obsolete and he's not he's caught gonna replace he's not gonna replace LeBron on as the most in -- there really isn't I can't think of anybody. I mean hey that's good that means that people likable but LeBron have either abroad before you want how to lower favorable than Mitt Romney -- bomb. And it's not a says Iran is now in the forties so as Obama yeah I I look and you're probably right. Could you have this click -- secret from women who plays who -- these clear -- can't. Of people that will pick sides in politics but it sports it was so lopsided against LeBron wondering what it really wasn't it wasn't a 5050 split. I think can be generous by the way say it was semi five point yet -- in and Barack Obama and people have much better hear it LeBron James. So that's that's a huge LeBron hasn't beaten -- and he does well I mean we don't know what about is that these are you know I want to -- I think Donald -- that I want I assume -- -- -- -- it can actually -- is next investigation. That's a book. I bet what I've -- trump has. -- I've I've got LeBron. I -- Donald Trump has lower favorable ratings and then -- -- that he does that and then and exhibit trump has lower -- of -- really great if LeBron James who despise it as whatever completed they'll try and fire Donald Trump on television -- what I don't think LeBron has that much money yet. -- -- -- scenes just that I don't Ottawa was probably the decision though he still has a home and he still has a home and Akron sleaze propping up 13 northern Ohio out. And he also owns part of the soccer team he does does -- on the Liverpool you know he -- -- some colorful which I also I still find that such raids on -- Henry was written for in the in the Eastern Conference finals. Mom could got a -- he's gotten a -- that game how I felt this is John W Henry and. I'd really like to see my do you think is the bronze agreed business partner Fran visitors from. I think now we have these baseball team. Are we get it quick break. Sporting event is good a great effect but -- is this I willing gauge this I thought. This is dancing stage of York -- when we get back we're going to talk got Nicolas -- of all things. The -- and Derrick Roland I know LeBron James. LeBron did you -- BS shows disrespect this guy.
