If you look at that -- skills you think OK this is a big rugged power forward who can do things for you but he just. He's got the body. Of that guy but not the game of that guy in little things bother him. He can't stay healthy. He should be much better than he has so when you enact a guy like that and under achiever you can have 1516 million dollars a year that's real problems -- I think the best. On our about the role Republicans of these countries but you know what the best contract Malaysia. Obviously the Providence yeah brown now. Eighteen million dollars a year to look for punching. A Coke would make a thirty next year do you consider cheque was at 331. Time. But that relief to -- it was. His contract.

The shoveling. Or those trips to the grocery store where everyone is just going nuts. And -- -- goes back crazy there -- goes back crazy. As if we don't live in New England as if it into the winter we're not gonna have some storms there. Like if if they say the bridge is a common among our people brokers.

Should -- -- and I was really. Is because everybody in the world at the start. With your -- And -- Texas as everyone goes crazy about the weather and everyone complains about everyone going crazy it's an average sort of circle Iraq actually right in the course story. -- young Benjamin he had anything. I hate the shoveling because I'm lazy. That's just basically it but it's great exercise -- right sure no enemies of the great exercise I live in the progress. You right out of an apartment at.

And that that this is -- -- All the way they'll plane at that time audio is still with that -- but you know what at in the the day in which we will go back -- we will relive this one day. If Jeff Greene becomes the kind of player. It UC glimpses. And maybe one day in my mind would just change about that. I just felt like the Celtics -- the chairmanship to have a championship to win at that time when Perkins was playing with him as a retriever and I'm Michael Jordan is getting married to his quotes longtime girlfriend her. And. Well and well let's go back for Elizabeth -- roll back his longtime girlfriend. What's what do you consider longtime girlfriend but he does get divorced. Well he's been that was a while Butler three years -- in the and an -- on either that deal is now probably not a proper security -- years yeah.

What -- Michael daddy and he stood decided endorsement deals that were away from basketball and you did not see much of that. This -- Richardson had like three different she figured you know I think it is like Libya on -- -- -- any other and they can flattery did you cover Michael Jordan's. All the fame. Half did hall of fame speech. Where he was just okay he was bitter and competitive and all the things that we came to love about Michael Jordan holds a grudge. So. Terry Francona saw that when Jordan was playing minor league baseball players from Birmingham Barons. 930 years old Francona was his manager was a much older the coaches were on Abbas. That Jordan got for them on your drive him back to Birmingham. Jordan sitting near the front of the bus with a coach you heard them talking about playing pickup basketball game. It's closer Francona says and on and on talking about and you can't play like we're just talking about the -- -- -- and play and pick up basketball to get back to Birmingham the -- playing basketball. At a public playground in Birmingham. Word travels around the neighborhood my usual is that that Michael Jordan is out there. Hold neighborhood comes in droves there's always wanted to every neighborhood right now rocked up 2526. Year old guy Michael George. Take you -- so. This guy's talking trash to Jordan Jordan has passed the ball trying to get -- and eventually. The competitive. Angry Michael -- takes over. They've got to hold dunks on them. -- the rim.
