How are you handling what was the most disappointing day A in recent memory that I can remember. That both Roger Federer and the lines of England went down on the same day let us know how you're coping or bureau's use corporation Kevin Anderson fan. We'll go their own a valid due to let us know how you feel more as a rubber really want to preserve open. But we still uptrend on your big tennis I was of the potential for two Americans to reach the Wimbledon final vote on the men's side and the women's side outselling the women's side seems a lot more likely Irina. Serena but we got Eisner on the men's side Isner is a good job. On a good job it is not Michael Eisner John Isner John Isner 610 by the way that's most fascinating about this little semi final Kevin Anderson 68. John Isner 610. Somewhere some relief guys or wait how are you guys not play well you know I know that means they are god awful hoops wiretap you have to be herald basketball player isn't executed Carolina cancers than he's on the keep pounding thing on the he's he's good did that. He is he is serve and serve again so that this one could be a if those two meet it could be a really interesting situation going for other world meets it's going to be an interest in slugfest between those two are this our goal can we go. Is brought to you by linking to inns and suites look at LQ dot common when a business and we've been doing our summer takes. So yeah it's okay. Yeah these are hot takes were wiggling them down from sixteen all the way bracket style NCAA to an eventual champion our first went out there today Starbucks coffee. Is better is the best coffee or Duncan is the best coffee. And that one is going the way of Dunkin' Donuts right now and there isn't there is time buys and wages are we did say due West Coast is it a very big disadvantage let's go stand up its. 503 in the morning right now so we need to give this pole time to run for the West Coast coffee drinkers to come get every gender waiting to take this sort of seems about even as far as what the heat of the tape is going to big yep and so. We really look to the next when the next one is our old introduced this would probably be a one seed if we had ceded all of these takes going into the tournament this would be the top of the bracket and without with further ado I present. The next debate what is that he'd be number one argument had a world of sports in the sports talk greatest hits album this is the number one track often re played. In your CD changer it is LeBron vs Jordan. To me this is being bid to take it as in the goat MJ is the goat or LeBron just exactly this the conversation that we spent the last four months having. On every platform could die at the last ten years to be eternally as early as well I just say recently we have it every single year you're right we have since LeBron. I think really this ramp up when LeBron won the championship in Cleveland because that was the one that validated him in a wave almost nothing else was gonna be able to go and so. Guys I mean were going to get into with a desperate to win more qualified to do this in us but initial gut reactions where we all fall on this one. The bronze greatest of all time and and you know that here's artist part about this idea called LeBron hater all the time because. I constantly point out that things and I think he should do better. There's a piece of that is for me it's because I think you agree is small and so when I miss this is about the quality of the tape not the validity of the argument. How weird it's like it's like I was. We always a weekend. They are just. Listen to better take his car and a wave of LeBron James is the greatest of all time yet I would agree out of a but here's the thing about this argument general everybody's dug in right if you grow and you're not being swayed one way we are not yet you I have never heard anybody say you know. Compelling argument I changed my mind that's never been set after the debate but overall as a result. Junior. I always fault of LeBron side of this is while my fifth as far as the take this to this was my favorite to drop in the locker room because even when I was playing you could just walk by if you saw any group of players together in a locker room and you want to incite a riot you just walk by news randomly go now I know guys I think LeBron might pass Jordan happening just walk away and you like the movie when you throw a match and and you wait for the explosion you walk away just wait for this massive sound and arguing because it is guaranteed and every time. That guy all on obscenities you just toss a grenade in Largo and that guy for two hours a day here a quality team today you had guys for four to Syria and just so you know what. And so I'd he hears I'm I'm very conflicted on this because I'm I'm firmly entrenched in my belief. That Michael Jordan is ago. I just came up. Okay yeah that's an old man to write opponent and nick if I go on George Mike can you could play god that's the right does seem more your speed much like Michael Jordan no sorry to ignite a big viking dad it. He's a big guy yeah big Mike and I. Lakers view to resign Obama big George Michael Nunn George mica and I'm George Michael the other sing a love and I don't like it. That we do is we'll direct her bed net necessarily that it expects you to tell me that he played Notre Dame on these things never come up mom. But about that I drive a great love it yes. I also do think that the hotter take is LeBron James ago because of what you just talked about because you can't get around. Six NBA. I had finals MVPs six NBA finals wins. And everything else that goes with a 'cause. Whether it's right or wrong in the goat discussion that's a card that's dropped right. And there's no way around as like what Phil was trying to do add that with tiger is like a egos play the career cart. Like you always play I want 42 dimes grade of 179 I have five majors great he's got three times that many are almost a fourteen. So the hotter take may be up a break down and understanding why LeBron might actually be the better player. But nobody gonna bite because there's dug in on the six and six thing indicate Iraq yeah. It's a thought you wanna structure argument -- you read requires you to dig into some outside things other than just fueling a bunch of outcomes and saying well he got all these rings so it must be all on the strength of his greatness and nothing else and that that's the blitz isn't true but what lab says the difference between what you mentioned a tiger and Phil because it was for tiger and Phil they're responsible for their outcomes solely for in those tournaments as opposed to the team game of basketball where we understand LeBron James has had to deal with. Teams like he had last year instilled in him to the finals vs anything Jordan had to do with those sixteen. That's why I think the championship discussion in general makes is for both sides makes it such Arctic mean as much as we wanted to take that one piece of MJ and have that he's been the defining this is why he's the greatest of all time. There are so many variables to that album we already had a discussion this morning that bald Dennis Rodman so when it's amazing how we look at one guy in a vacuum. We don't look at the other guy and accurate in its interest that the best way to make the argument for LeBron is is what you just said. Good there's no getting around most people won't fool site I think most people's I would Jordan has something that's even close. But what LeBron did this year essentially and I made this point when I was all of waddle and still being used in Chicago. And you have to recognize what LeBron did this year getting that cast seemed to the finals. Was basically like what Jordan was never able to do which was get the balls to the final before Scottie Pippen shall. I mean there's not a there's not another player on this cap Steve and watch it again all I GAAP won the best of all time. Mean Michael Jordan as good as he was he could never get a Scottie Pippen was squad. To the NBA finals until one of the players who again was voted as one of the top fifty players at the time they made the ball in the history of the NBA. Until we had that second guy as good as Jordan was when he one that's had dropped 63 against the Celtics in the garden. That's what the bulls lost that game okay and they never could get to the finals until he got other pieces around them now sure he was the biggest piece but they had other options. And the fact that LeBron brought this team to the finals might be the most compelling argument to make him. You're on the go outside there so again vote at. Gold going on a one on her flowers dot com Twitter feed weigh in there. On the strength of take we have someone like him probably helpless with the strength of the argument in general yes and since you mentioned one and flowers dot com surprise or front level today with a bouquet from 1800flowers.com. When you order a dozen multicolored from 2999. Get another dozen absolutely free but wanted to send flowers dot com slash ESPN but now maybe to the voice of reason. Or to the voice of much more knowledge and not one of us on the subject we are delighted to be join in the show opens a performance on by Larry Hughes. Fourteen year NBA veteran. Played with Jordan on the wizards so not exactly the Jordan all of his dominant time. Promote two and a three I was with the cavs in 2005 to 2008 but more importantly. I government high school in Saint Louis and Larry Hughes joins us now so Larry this is the hot take a ball hot takes and we're doing this just because so I understand that's the premise here you played with both. So where does Larry Hughes the voice of reason stand on LeBron is the goat Jordan years ago. Or leave it to its roots I mean this is it is good to go into this service do it. In a battle because that's sort of what extent. As my early days of playing basketball which is. It is his accomplishments is since attitudes. In this world you know every day he carried with them. Are so familiar it's it's really simple. So a Larry I'm interested because Trey mentioned when you came to each of these guys in their career you know Michael Jordan was already already had that aura about him. And a young girl LeBron James I'm interested did you see anything what did you notice and LeBron James that indicated that this might even be a potential conversation down the road for him. Well all of them you know just know a little bit as he was in high school that they do look at our school protection. He was carried himself. You know his motivation and stop process of you know basketball or Whitaker who formal. And brilliance attention until. Is natural giving nobility criticized current endorse the and then the things that he's he'll learn you know throughout the years so if geriatric magic. I mean you could just release yeah yeah yeah yeah it was he was on his way. Larry Hughes said earlier that for you this is pretty cut and rides Jordan because of how you grow about what you watched. So I ask you win for the next generation of player that's grown up and and watch LeBron you know their answer be clear cut LeBron in your mind. I believe so. I believe so that they could there's a transition bear no. There will do to read it and you know doctor Jerry. My distinctive you know you're the guy to come before Stacy Moore aren't and that's why would they know. I'm so again Larry Hughes with a fourteen year NBA veteran the pride was CBC high school right Larry. We are we there are no CBC eyes on Saint Louis fourteen year vet played with Jordan when he was with the wizards. And Obama the cavs at all by the way he's. He's the godfather to Jason Tatum. Of the Boston Celtics so Lilly knows greatness when it comes to basketball the way around that there's there's no getting around. Absolutely a good exit so I guess Larry was that was better and mine with understanding all that and being around both of these guys. And now seeing the movie LeBron James made this summer how does that factor into the way that other players look at this certainly we see guys move in free agency all the time but it feels like there's a difference when it comes to guys that are in this elite group of ninety just hall of famers but all time greats. You know what I think that it it its interest in to watch something I'm Lebanese now are these two clears these guys they're doctors claim task order during the or rules now. They're understanding with the legacy you to understand the conversation is broke ground bill. And now they're ordered that situation that can put him in the best situation. I'll be there to do running into joining forces. But you know that's how they're generous so. I actually like it because these guys narrowly could be the caps owner and good relationships that were anchoring the distance on the that's all. I have a certain Lara and their their team building to mean let's be honest they're doing that which I think has gotten people really offended which I can never understand this. Larry hughes' with a sold for you it's Jordan based on as you said growing up and and and that's made great point that a lot of people look LeBron because that's what they saw growing up. But let's compare and contrast now what is one thing you think may be Mitt maybe there isn't. One thing that you think LeBron is definitively better that than Jordan when it comes to basketball. I don't think anything. I've been around Mike to assist in early. Accepted around them all got your basketball wise I don't think it. While all right I I I love the fact educate strong without so so what do you make that have of LeBron and his teammates now in LA what do you think about the team. They're surrounding him with and the idea that they're trying to zig zag opposite of what the warriors are two. Did hit it took some medicine especially coming into a building young. Guys say they are too mature and they haven't. Completely given the way there's there's there's so to be you know completely limited happening because a lot of the color of her or advocates. Voting. Let rod go to completely different team that you're the number of your guys that you have all. Sort of be talked about a person they know the final slot so he's he's gonna continue to be great that they have the final plunge over. Larry I wanna go back to something you mentioned earlier armed players understand their legacy so in the current structure where players are bound to back and forth all over the place to get the right tandem. In championships or even harder to win because of the Golden State situation. What does a player considered to be his legacy is all about championships so. Home. You know thought about talked to a number of guys in here would sort of based on all of this to sophomore who shakes out. A lot of guys wanna make an impact in all the court so. Relying heavily on theatre we do in court to YouTube. Recognition and bring out close to what scornful. We are talking to a lot of guys that are you try to cabinet peck all court as we're. Our Larry Hughes fourteen year NBA veteran on the Shelton's all performance like do you think that's starting to have just as much a factor in free agent decisions that guys make I mean obviously that the burden of winning a championship is still how they're judged but. When we see you LeBron James and Paul George and new choir letter and some of these marquee names coming up. In the next couple of years do you think that having a social impact in a business present are starting to weigh in on these decisions may be close to as much as the basketball side. I think so you know a blood guts are understating buck up at all. And we're really pleased to try to organize and that these leaders huge dollar and repeat. You've given way to do it in the in the short you know time period I think desperately focused on. That you that would successful you have to the game is over. Larry so much of it is about the legacy what they can do off the court how to teams in and nontraditional markets like Memphis and Milwaukee how to places like that eventually separate in gets our players to band together and go there. I think it's culture. It's coaching it's management you know players seem to postings are reliant on the new ticket Kirkuk. We'll be supported. Constant no push to to be better and happier to be successful I will lose that snow. We in the conference which are which are produced and you'll really be competitive. But not because they have a chance that it didn't give people in there. Larry here's what this fourteen year veteran in the NBA played with Jordan play with LeBron helping us tried to sell hot take debate LeBron is the go to MJ is a goat decidedly in the a Michael Jordan a camp on this. But I have to ask you something else Larry again you want to CBC high school in Saint Louis Taylor Twellman. Of course is our soccer analyst here I grew up in Saint Louis played at Saint Louis Saint Louis University high school. Was a member of the junior billikens he said he gave up any career basketball one time because you dropped 35 points on is that true. I've got to believe that is certainly good man. The. Yeah I love that I. I have dropped 35 I dropped 35 and so many guys collide nods Euro wives who had a harder time finding Taylor's name in the box score you know it's corny point that's also thrown so you crushes dreams of playing college basketball but it that again he went on to have a pretty good career as a soccer player but just so you know you ended the whole thing for him. Oh I was happy to do after. We have here. You go oh Larry's the goat that's river event Larry we appreciate you being with us this morning thanks man. Well let you you got it Larry Hughes. So course I kid I'm sure Taylor scored you know the six I'm not I'm not willing to take that baton that we have no idea well I'll find out you are different I would love to put Taylor on the court against you know I don't want anything to do with that I'd I'd I'd. In my measurable understand when I'm up against I can also look at somebody else and see what they're probably up against. Com he was pretty definitive there on the LeBron. Vs MJ discussion I was shocked for someone who like you said saw Jordan very much at the end of his career as your teammate has deteriorated at the end of his Caribbean no experience him as opposed to seeing and experiencing LeBron James when used coming up. And you know at the height of his apple lettuce is a maybe not as polished as we see him because LeBron has combined. Age and experience and still that physical prowess in a way that we rarely ever get to see regardless of sport. Yeah I mean I think it is a valid point he saw the end of Jordan he saw sort of pumping Jordan you know for the wizards that was not exactly the Jordan it. We think when you when you get to highlight rip you don't get that version of sub for him to be so definitive. While still acknowledging app part of that's how we giro but it but I thought how definitive he was that there's. Nothing in his mind LeBron does better that was actually the the thing that I thought was the most important thing I thought does that well I like this about LeBron at. No we expect that it in his mind there's nothing that LeBron does that is better than what Michael. Jordan to do. It's advocates the aura that we always come in of people with too because when you're kidding you're watching someone there's a mystique about it you just can't replicate because at that point you know so much less than you do once you see guys as an adult as a fully formed person. And so the guys coming into the MBA now our wire always think about because you get a lot of these rookies that have come in and have been watching LeBron for their entire lives well. That point there's a picture of Jason Tatum when he was a kid yeah outstanding next to LeBron and of course now they played against each other last year and did all the way to game 7 of the eastern covered final day that we that was set up by Larry humid and let's remember that part of the legacy because part of that conversation was paid generational what are you going up around part of the latest edict that players now going up around. On the legacy of players and understand their their business form and their ability to monetize an ability to essentially do more with their brand so. It will be interesting to see what the next generation of NBA player does because the more empowered and have. Always say this too is the MBA players are really all the app. Athletes of hole all. Have an advantage when it comes to creating this mystique. Because now we get so much exposure we see so much of these guys they give us so much whether it's on the or social media platforms or the things that they've created you don't get that you heard everything about Michael Jordan. Through media through the beat writers had to fall that it became folklore a lot quicker as opposed to now worried too rumors it's tabloids it's all these things that seem much more data data are so I think it's harder to manufacture that feeling of someone being that special yeah but again bit the hot take polls up there. And we'll see which one moves on MJ is the goat or LeBron is the goat. Larry Hughes squarely in the MJ is the goat category.

When you shared your photo or video let's hash tag that's suffering heroes T-Mobile will donate one dollar just more vets with teams in the so America keep posting without sag has suffered heroes and T-Mobile will keep giving. Fresh fish licensing its major league baseball players. Let's go way on the road let's go across the pond. To a guy who knows a thing you'd do well what's going on Wimbledon hand. Is one of the biggest warrior fans out there that's our Fontana and tennis and analyst and that the purveyor of the great nicknames when it comes to tennis Brad Gilbert is with us. From the all England bred good morning how are we Cirque. Good morning from across the Gonzalez and had junior. A soft yellow carded you can not say. That LeBron James is better than Roger Federer duchess is soft yellow on that but that will move forward. I think that's a red card actually Brad with you there a 100%. I'll miss them. Before we let junior respond what happened yesterday I was I stayed after the show to make sure I watched the third set so the king would move on I'm sitting there with a match point. And Kevin Anderson was like not gonna happen he was unbelievable. Can we blame the wordsmith Tom and all the does that possible yes he comes in the Booth. At match point to call the next match the old commentators jinx. But you know it take Kevin Anderson's credit. He didn't fold you know he held his nerve. And we saved a match point at 54 to thirty he relaxed he played his best game the next game and broke. And then where the match really dramatically turn. Is it nick when he served for the third set 65 Roger Federer at love forty. Anderson missed three consecutive first serves and on the third one Roger had a very easy look at a forehand. Any pull that mistake and from that point nine. Anderson played as good as I've ever seen him before and sometimes can be a little bit dodging it held up. And believe or not he sort of cushion Roger back in at fourth and fifth set and he was winning a lot of long extended rallies impressive desperate for Kevin Anderson. Talking to Brad Gilbert EST intense tennis analyst with us. On the shell Pennzoil performance I will say LeBron at least has the courtesy to way to the finals to lose to anyone of these Honolulu zoo and goes wow this meantime we'll. I wills I. I will ask this because we heard from the sound Roger Federer he said. A bit bothered after really saying a talking a lot about the elements not playing his best game. Did he appear to be perturbed by this loss even though he's got this storied history of winning. Well if you're not perturbed so who's wrong with you junior. He was in the winning position. I and I think he was a little bit annoyed when himself that he didn't convert and he was in the giant section where it. The legitimate you know Anderson a six ADB six Tenet he was a basketball player is 610 would be about 71. And around it any plays really well against big guys I think he was very annoyed with himself. And he let that slip away and then you know one state you know. Anderson had a little bit of a lifeline he started to play really well listen better is one month shy of being 37 what he's doing. At tennis at this level is historic I know Tom Brady still playing amazing at forty athletes are pushing the envelope. You know much later but you know though the last two sets I mean. He you know wasn't his best level but you've got to give credit to Kevin Anderson for taking advantage of the situation we got 68 vs six tenths semi finals. Bring your neck brace you're gonna see a lot of aces go home. So Brad after the match to comments from Federer really focus more on what he didn't do them one Anderson did. When you look back at the match what was the emphasis here was that what. Federer didn't do or is what was done to him. What I would think that early on in the match. Federer had a great reed army Anderson certainly broke his serve. If the three of the first seven and then never again and as the match window and especially in the third and the fifth set. English and started serving much bigger and Roger you know didn't I just his position we always stands very close he challenges the big servers. And big endo had the answers so I'm not so sure. That he was you know major adjustments are up more than he was really annoyed with himself that he didn't come up with the goods in the third set. And sometimes you win as a football game any sport. When you give somebody a lifeline. You know. All of a sudden things can change quickly. And that's the greatness about best of five sets you know ain't over until the umpire calls game set match in a regular turn in best of three it's completely different story. It you know it's physical it's longer. And normally this is kind of match that Roger never loses what he did when he yesterday and every minds is why we lace up the sneakers upsets can happen in any sport. Yeah as a remembers always says you play to win the game and you can't run out the clock in tennis you've got a you've got to finally win that final game. To put yourself over the top Brad Gilbert whether it's off from the hauling from a Wimbledon so now we have this scenario where we got Kevin Anderson against John Isner. John Isner in his first semi final at the age of 33. Trying to break the drought for American tennis champions on the men's side read we haven't had a man won a slam since Andy Roddick. Assess his chances going forward not only gets Anderson. But then again on the other semi final having to be perhaps be the rock for urged Joker if he gets to the final what are his chances with his serve right now. What 2003 less an American won it I was in the coaching box and I had hair and I'm definitely Toledo Ohio I'm. Yeah you know what in the third round. I said that John is there was gonna make his first semifinal. And a last year you know. Same query made a semifinalist and I believe it was his 42 career major that was the longest that Simon had ever waited to make his first Sammy. Now you got it is they're doing it in his 41. I don't think that he could have beaten Federer it's not a good matchup for him but if this is a football game. He's 83. Head to head with his Anderson. He's held serve fellas 95. Times on the trot has not been broken alternate early in the attorneys second round. He faced two match points anyway ace ace ace ace. I don't he gets his serve broken I'd put him as about a three and a half point favorite I love this chances. The Djokovic Rafa. Let me tell you that is a match that you know you're gonna see it all Rafa was pushed for hours and 48 minutes yesterday at absolutely thrilling stuff. And you and you wonder how he will bounce back physically we could have a little change in the weather and the roof could be close. In the second match it in the afternoon tomorrow if that does happen I actually think that's an advantage for Djokovic makes a court a little bit slower lower bouncing. I believe that if it's Isner vs Djokovic I like Djokovic chances if Rafa wins believer not and it's is there. I like is there to be hold enough to come up on Sunday and winning his first slam. That it just so you know sometimes you see little matchups but I think it is Isner Rafa he will fancy his chances if it's Djokovic there on Sunday. You know I'd that's a tough fast many returns he's a little longer. He's like Dag goalie in the net you know he's gonna be stopped and shot and he will find a way to break Isner. After being held out in the World Cup America could use a win in Nash yeah Wimbledon Wimbledon it was certainly look nice in the trophy case speaking of stack trophy case course. Hopefully hopefully fellas. I was to say hopefully in our lifetime fellas we will once the United States. Make a run in the World Cup I would love to see that because you know. Outside the states it's the biggest turn in the world that so we must we'll get involved hopefully we'll get out LeBron James type playing soccer one day. And I'll hopefully one day again see my readers it is Super Bowl because it's been way too long. There's only one LeBron James black bread and appreciated if we acknowledge that but we do LeBron James playing good tennis in the women's side as well what Serena Williams is doing right now is there any way to really fully appreciate what she's accomplishing on the court as closely remove from just finishing pregnancies she is. Well first of all she's a completely different level than Brian I mean I mean she's on the mount Rushmore. Of your all time greatest athletes she's right there. And I'm not surprised what she's doing I mean. She's same age as Roger Federer almost 37 years old and she has this rare ability. When she gets in these terrorists to get better I think she would've won the French had she not got injured. And and she has a great mindset she's just is one of those players that. No matter what she gets better and I think that she's in great position here. You know all the top ten lost they actually got a really good field carver is you know beaten her once before a slam final. Julie gorgeous she just beat her at the French so. I love the way of Serena is playing and it's amazing how quickly she's come back but I know one thing junior never under estimate the greatness of Williams. No question about that by the way that comes up a little later today right now Angelique Herbert is up on you in Austin Paco and the other women's semi final. Brad we appreciate you being witnessed but I would be remiss of I didn't ask you as a huge warrior fan I'm pretty sure you're okay would both be in their right. I. I do you kill it took me a couple of days to get used to that I hope that they will think about re seeding one to sixteen because the junior conference.
