AM by integrity windows and doors. If you're trying to figure out the LeBron James connection with this finally. Well. Seriously he's going to be right at the moment. This is from Friday to. -- -- The the he final -- the whole scene and fight -- guys winning. -- -- to rein in north you guys have to find Christian Fauria think there's there's so let's see -- Christian oriented -- on the air. For a long -- unified. You know it's I think -- rock from what I think you know which is from either try to keep two -- the -- That Peter terrible Peterson terrorists. It's such a thing. It is terrible the laureate marathon now via the glory of love that's -- -- to -- -- that two man. The little two from the back and forth and wrote. -- of those words. The drone. Who wouldn't just outside -- guys walk him. Well with unfair and went to turn the cream cake and it didn't work was supposed to do. Well with the new. Practices Switzerland. It. What was that little bit of what would have running see is that ridiculously maniacal laugh after that. I want that guy dead -- But to -- blog consultant. But regardless of the -- From the farm run put on like a skeleton Halloween -- running around the Internet that they Diego every kids were like you need you saw this movie -- their -- on them for karate lessons -- the next day and the next day than what. To a three later this is I don't I just don't know that with the -- -- of the year great article on it collapsed -- Not feeling too well and remember the studio Olympic existent. Red the red -- spread the Lawrence Westbrook. For several hours the chain of writings. You do it did you achieve a certain no level. To rebuild -- -- out. Into these chances. Of passing it to clear through. Call martial arts. And have a cancer team I was -- when he would teach -- -- -- -- along parts of LeBron is the best tournament. In his mind he certainly is he said that his mount Rushmore for the NBA it would be. -- Jordan magic and it took them awhile when he thought of Oscar Robertson but I need to be up there's that LeBron -- need to add another space for me. So I ask you who would be your basketball now. Rushmore here in the crazy thing about LeBron into the three easy ones right. He named the first three -- dirty bird and magic are. So he said it's easy he has no -- and he has no will -- he has no Bill Russell right the murders. Brothers got -- -- got no I mean it's not that I believe it but Kenosha. -- -- Olajuwon Sonya we write these down I think you almost have to do. Like senators are different category. They ultimately probably 704. And -- and an all open also for treatment for our -- it's basketball should have five. We've done this before it's gonna rush where you get for now equipped her to change the rules you gotta add -- -- basket anyway. All right for common to have Russell on there -- LeBron LeBron that they are you may be there one day not yet. I'm gonna have. I would have Jordan so Russell -- Georgia Tech. That is it's difficult it's difficult. I think -- -- Russell Jordan. Magic. And either Korean or wilt. Local -- To about I I almost went that way but I I. I don't think he could have magical number I just think they don't again. Like there are your life and nobody to go to the other. Like basketball guys Bob -- would go to -- my fifth. But I -- Larry Bird could have five guys at a basketball court -- -- where would Jordan bird magic and Bill Russell does those in my four. And -- those other names you bring up could be on the there's no reason that. Kareem couldn't be on the air Wilt Chamberlain couldn't be on there but that's -- for those pork prices doctor. Before I said the NBA now comes -- the Adriatic. -- wondering -- -- -- says one ring in the NB a says Jerry west's. Is the -- Now with some of the greatest and that's why it's difficult he said there's nothing easy about Brian. And an even without those aforementioned -- will. Yeah so -- -- -- Them out of heart that's the point I don't know rush I don't want anybody emirates which it would take rebuffed but we'll have a chat now now coming up will. And Russell they go together yes that I'm gonna have magic Michael. Apparently 1936 there was a petition to raise them who's -- Susan B. Then apparently the -- was. She ended up on the on the dollar -- the artists that have make it to -- what. Exactly do we. -- -- and to be a little bit easier for you would be on your mount Rushmore for the NHL. Four names in the NHL archives -- this is the same go ahead and zoom Gretzky. Or yeah how yeah. And I want the floor. You look. -- -- Mario LeMieux.

Overture. And was put report and they're just personal reasons but backed off at the end I can -- -- didn't throw fuel for the team. Scott Stevens. Think it's got the enemy and I really great player out there right away from him. Or is -- Castro no doubt about it. He say aura that you know. Among the -- get guys a year ago when taxpayers missing -- sure old -- yet. CAD short play. Hanson Brothers and I don't have. Got. Thought in those first three are pretty much automatic.

It's going to be bird -- at Russell. Williams. And -- was with him. Or warn you when we go to war at Williams or for the differently I did take a lot more newer players and I didn't like Celtic only because. I was -- I thinking you need to -- This is in in the history of Boston has been more Red Sox now than anything else. And I -- Pedro. What he brought to the city including the championship 2004. And then probably Ted Williams put it -- -- day for -- between Ted Williams. And David Ortiz and it's not because Ortiz has a better. All all three championships pole three championships that Hillary for it kind of it about the -- Reach him better individual player. But three rings that. Bring it to make the argument I'll go with Ted Williams even oil from -- comfortable doing it -- -- rating. Pedro Ted Williams Bobby. You know Bill Russell -- right now. You can make the argument with great links. How about all all -- pretty -- about a basketball 111030. Not to hound -- about it went down this is the biggest winner and they hit 2000 bars on the same line it up at the basketball it's it's a championship country you know mileage security championship country I led us.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs.

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history.
