We don't perform for. Now. It's totally swollen or. Board or Ford. Fun cleaning. -- -- Well we solved -- Funds rate at W. The NBA finals concluded last night at the Miami Heat winning it all LeBron James captured his second title and MVP award in a row putting him in company -- Bill Russell Michael Jordan. Is there anything left to criticize LeBron about. It's getting harder -- say that I'm not I'm an anti LeBron guy I'll still criticizing him for joining eighteen is supposed to. Trying to lead a team but. And they got the last two years he has stepped up in critical situations in the NBA finals and one -- and this year while the rest of his team kind of evaporated behind around them in the -- Wade did nothing. -- stadium last I mean he took away rather than even helping at all and parody got a a clutch performance from daddy last night but that was almost more low -- than anything else. It's fantastic. And as much as I don't like him I don't like the things he says I don't like the way he's a rod asked and tries to. Appeal to everybody all the ones that nobody can ever union wanted to polarizing ever. He keeps winning and so it's getting harder and harder to criticize the. I -- Jordan one Russell two -- three magic for -- five and then after that but LeBron six economy whenever we're one win two more championships. You've been fortunate top five maybe -- -- going to be better toward her Magic Johnson says that you -- that post game interview with magic and Simmons -- weird and Jalen Rose it was like a gang -- I mean it was embarrassing those guys were pleasure on games I mean really I guess is that what you're supposed to do after -- guy wins a championship just yet but she suggests that the decision I think when black. Screw up black do you -- this period that. Now you don't. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- By not at this point being criticized abroad to achieve at this point I think that's really about it. You think he could be eventually -- you could you could ever each report only sees that a number. Do it'll never got heartburn you'll never say I bet that there's nothing he could do to make you -- -- LeBron James a better basketball player who ever wins five more championships -- seven championships yes but birds -- better shooter or to better rebounder urged better passer LeBron is better defense. The program. Three to tubs of amber at the -- his body and he just he makes he's such a difficult half ice player I think is the sexism that's part of history that's if and that seems kind of weak dollar is an important but just second. -- -- -- -- and it's really great Ed O'Bannon has embroiled been embroiled in a lawsuit -- E. A. SPORTS in collegiate licensing company. Overuse of his license likeness in video games how do you think this case. Should shake out. Boy that's really good questions and I would say waterboarding but that doesn't make sense but. It's -- case trying to think it's actually quietly is sort of monster case in the in in in businesses sports history. How should be sadly I think now I should abandon deserves to be paid for this. You know -- to -- that it has to happen. The idea that someone can use your likeness without paying you for it. Is observed that about you cannot allow E. A. SPORTS in the NCAA. Sellable like this a metal band and anybody else's played there and make money on that any more than they should be allowed to sell anyone's Jersey and make money on the -- Without the player receiving -- cut right but ultimately. I think most people agree with that I think most reasonable people agree that they deserve a cut of any merchandising that comes as a result of what they do on the athletic court field whatever right the question is whether or not they should be paid a salary for what they do I believe they ship and -- and we agree that we agree -- over thirty playing this video game will probably buying their arms and are you into a video games that might produce a certain age Oprah figured you know I hate video but I don't hate them but I don't like -- -- that age. Sixteen. Eighteen now obvious errors what you don't call -- -- -- in this country and what is the average -- -- like everybody -- 31. It was I mean. That means I'm wrong because the average age is 31 well I think what it was led Kirk is saying is once you get over the average age they're quick update third and everyone's OK Jesus was 32 -- need he was playing video games. He just wasn't but it -- -- you know -- was. -- that's -- -- Similar question Bible -- Rush or Springsteen who sucks more. -- we got into this but I perjury that frisky about you kind of an efforts to about it don't -- -- but that's why it's the here's the problem. -- -- I don't like Bruce Springsteen it's not like a band like he's not a guy choose to listen to your column but I don't hate Bruce Springsteen in -- like his music is somewhat. What's the right word. He's trying a little too hard I think we've been messaging in his music Unix but he's talented he's got talent the guys around them like everyone else you know I have my copy of born in the USA sort of listened to. Was on that Darlington county and -- on there working on the highway and it's my hometown. Courteney Cox and danced on the -- songs are fine it is more esoteric stuff that I don't like at all such as.
