People tuned in on Smart Speakers. Thank you. We appreciate you. I'm hanging out here with super producer and host Dave Shepherd. And as you know, about an hour from now, I'm going to give you a new top six list. And tonight, we're going to talk about some of the most influential baseball players in the game right now. As Aaron Judge continues to potentially assault, not only Yankee records, but an American League record when it comes down to home runs and, and maybe legitimately the home run record.
And when I say legitimately, I'm, I'm excluding the guy who leads it and someone like Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa. I want to talk about, you know, baseball. We always say, hey, you know, who's the guy? Where are or where is the guy? And we'll, we'll discuss the faces of the game right now in hopes that maybe things can, can turn around.
And so we'll give you that top six list about an hour from now. We opened up the show last hour, unfortunately talking about the injury to Chet Holmgren. It didn't take him playing in an NBA game in the regular season to get hurt. He hurt his foot, potential ligament damage in Jamal Crawford's Pro-Am game.
And that was this past Saturday. They had to stop the game in the second quarter due to condensation on the court. LeBron was playing, Jason Tatum was playing, Paulo Benquero, the number one overall pick. He was out there playing and so was Chet Holmgren, except for he didn't have to wait until the second quarter for the game to get called. He went down in the first. And yeah, there was certainly concerns about his durability at seven foot one, 195. He is, he's a bean pole and his foot, he can't, he tried to contest LeBron's block or excuse me, LeBron's block. His LeBron's layup, he came down and he couldn't even run back down the court. So all the best to him and whatever his injury is, I hope it's not serious.
I would say Chet was going to be the most interesting player to really look out for this upcoming season, especially for the young guys. It's like, what can this man do? Destroying people in high school, destroyed people in college.
What was he going to do against grown men and how was he going to evolve? And so if you missed that conversation, hit rewind, the free Odyssey app. Speaking of injury, not Chet Holmgren related, we talked about Walker Bueller of the Los Angeles Dodgers going down, just had his second Tommy John surgery. And the Dodgers, they still lead the world right now, having a record of 85 and 37.
That's basically never losing. And so they lead the San Diego Padres by 19 games. And I think they have enough pitching to kind of take them into the playoffs. And you just got to cross your fingers for someone like Clayton Kershaw that he can also contribute.
And I think the Dodgers will be fine. Now, as we continue on with the show, and to talk about something this hour, I told you that we're going to get into Aaron Rodgers, everybody's favorite subject, because his former wide receiver, Devante Adams had something, I guess the word might be interesting to say about Aaron and what he brings to the field. And we know what he brings to the field. We see it every single Sunday or Monday or Thursday, sometimes Saturday, and that he is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. Has he had his missteps in a postseason, embarrassing missteps? Yes, he has.
It seems that he becomes a little gun shy when it comes down to big time moments. You can go ahead and ask Packer fans, or you can just look at some of his recent games against the 49ers. But he's still one of the best. And that's what we see every single regular season game. It was only last week that Aaron Rodgers with Devante Adams gone. Aaron Rodgers even wanted to call out some of his young wide receivers who he said need to basically he said need to basically get it together. And so Devante Adams is now a Raider. He's going to be catching passes from his former teammate and Derek Carr.
And he sat down with the pivot podcast. And I don't want to say he gave Aaron Rodgers, you know what I will say it. Devante Adams gave Aaron Rodgers the biggest compliment that you could probably give any athlete. Listen to what Devante had to say about Aaron on the pivot podcast.
It was amazing, man. I mean, you know, I don't I don't discount anything, you know, that Aaron was able to do for me because I mean, he's best quarterback, you know, in my opinion to play this game. What he did for me was not just about the type of balls or whatever that he threw, you know, great back shoulder, whatever. He had the Michael Jordan effect. He gonna make you play better. He gonna he gonna bring out your best just by being on the field.
It's like he was a great leader, but it was it was more so just about you would always notice in OTA is like, you know, every now and then a guy that's in his what 15th year at that point or whatever, they get days off in OTA. So it'd be times where he wasn't practicing and you would just notice people start to like not not fall off, not not practicing hard, but it wasn't the same as when Aaron is out there. Devante Adams says that Aaron Rodgers has the the Michael Jordan effect that he steps out onto the field and the quality of play from the teammates and the expectations they they rise. Devante Adams, he's not lying. This man has he's had a damn good career here with the Green Bay Packers.
Didn't start off all that hot. But as he went on, yeah, man is snatching almost 20 touchdowns and 14, 1500 yards ain't too shabby. Devante is probably the best wide receiver in the game right now. And he could thank Aaron Rodgers for a lot of that. But I've heard and seen people go, whoa, how can he put him in the category of of Michael Jordan? How can you say that Aaron Rogers is, you know, he has the Jordan effect? Well, we know what Aaron Rodgers does when he plays. It's all the other times when he opens up his mouth, like earlier this year, when he wanted to discuss whether or not he was ever going to play again. Do you remember this from Pat McAfee about whether he was coming or going? The whole world tuned in to hear and see if he was going to play again.
And this is what he gave us. Let me just put this disclaimer out right away for the the the few people watching that are tuned in just for a specific maybe news or decision. There will be no news today.
No vision on my future. As I was texting with you yesterday, I just got out of a 12 day punch of karma. Look that up. I know you did after we talked.
But it's a lens that, you know, originated in India. It's been going on for thousands of years. And it's something I've done in the off season. So I'm just getting my head above above the sand now and seeing what's going on out there.
But but no decision about my future today. Oh, man. Is that Shep? Is that the the Michael? That's not the Michael Jordan effect, right? Not that that doesn't count.
Devante Adams clearly did not have a concept of what it meant to be a great basketball player when the when the moment was Vegas. Clearly. That's all that's all that tells me. I don't I don't think that was his point, though. It's a ridiculous comparison, Jr. And you know it. No, it's it's not. I don't I don't think so.
It's very simple what Devante Adams said. He said, hey, when you're a veteran, and then we saw this take place with Tom Brady, Tom Brady just went on vacation or he went and found out that he was a veteran. Or he went and filmed The Masked Singer or he went into a cave, whatever you think. Tom Brady was just gone. And now that Tom Brady is back, you will imagine that he's there and things are different. The expectations are different.
You know, everybody is a little bit more in their p's and q's. It's no different than, you know, your parents leaving you home after school and what you do at home by yourself or with your aunts or your uncles, your brothers, your sisters, your grandparents is going to be a little bit different when mom or dad or whoever the hell is in charge walks into the house. And I don't think it's it's different. I don't think it's a comparison of Aaron Rodgers is the the ultimate leader of men. I don't think it's a matter of Aaron Rodgers is. Yeah, he's here.
He's going to lead us to the promised land. But I think it's simply an acknowledgment of, hey, Aaron Rodgers is one of the best. And when he's on the football field, you know, it's no different whether you agreed with or what or disagree with what he said last week about the young receivers. Like there's an expectation on the field of what Devante said. And Devante said he is the best. He's one of them. Hey, I got to step up. This is a big deal for me to be out here with this dude.
Yeah. J.R., there's there's no denying the talent level he has is off the charts. His ability to find people at all angles, his arm strength at 38 years old is unprecedented. But my question for you would be, can you really look at this lack of success he's had against such inferior teams? Jimmy G. happens to come to mind and say that he's one of the best in anything when it really matters most with the exception of one Super Bowl appearance. And that was 12 years ago.
Well, first of all, that's besides the point. The second point to answer your question is, yes, he has he has been bad against the 49ers. The past couple of seasons have been bad. But every game that he has been in, Aaron Rodgers, if you look at the postseason record of the games he's participated in, all of them, he hasn't been complete crap or trash. And I'd venture to say if Jimmy Garoppolo had the same stretch or body of work to even compare to what Aaron Rodgers has done, it's not even a conversation.
You got to be damn good to even get to that spot and point. And Jimmy Garoppolo can't even stay healthy. And so, yes, the facts are all there about his recent postseason performances.
It's nothing that can take away from it. But to say that Aaron Rodgers is not one of the best quarterbacks to ever play is is is too big of a slight. It's inaccurate. This man for playing a position is he's he's a terminator.
He's a robot. He doesn't turn the ball over last night or the past couple of nights. We talked about quarterbacks and and someone like Kirk Cousins, who can accumulate stats, accumulate numbers and say, hey, I delivered you 33 touchdowns and and only seven, I don't know, INTs and only three fumbles or whatever the case might be. And it's just like, well, if you were a little bit more aggressive, maybe you would have had 40 touchdowns.
And I don't know, it's nine INTs or ten of them. And those couple of touchdowns could have won us an extra couple of games, could have kept the defense more honest. But no, you're not aggressive. The fact that Aaron Rodgers can move around out the pocket, make any throw, be aggressive and not turn the ball over is ridiculous. The fact that he can do that in a regular season to get you to a postseason as long as he has is ridiculous. Is everybody going to go out there and, you know, sell you the world? No. You know, even in the case of Tom Brady, every playoff game that he participated in, he wasn't out there going 20 for 20 with four touchdowns and I don't know, 300 yards.
It's it's it's difficult. And so, yeah. Has he been has he been perfect? No. Has he kind of stepped back in the postseason as well?
Yes. He's still one of the best quarterbacks that we've seen. But when it comes to his leadership, yes, that can also be questionable, especially now that he's later in his career.
And when he opens up his yap, it's just like going down one of those pick your own adventure books, having a conversation or listening to Aaron Rodgers talk about anything, especially his future is just like, man, just just spare me. But I think it is true. It's factual. Being one of the best quarterbacks, being one of the best players in the league, being a four time MVP, someone who will go into the Hall of Fame. He, like everybody else, regardless of whether he's a little bit on the interesting side, he's to be respected. It's just facts. That's more than fair. I just I can't ever recall one of Peyton Manning's best weapons or Tom Brady's best weapons in the middle of the prime coming off an MVP year, deciding to go elsewhere to play with a quarterback that has zero postseason wins. I get everything you're saying, J.R., but that's a bad look for Aaron Rodgers.
And you know it. Well, I think I think it's I think it's bigger than that. I think a lot of it has to do with the finances. I think a lot of it has to do with first of all, Devante got one hundred and forty one million dollars.
And it is a bad look. If you have to think about him opening up his mouth, that's a big part of it. It's not like Aaron Rodgers at thirty eight is getting any younger. It's not like anybody wants to play this game with him every year.
Is he coming or going? And sure, absolutely. That factored into Devante Adams deciding to leave.
Sure. And Devante had to, quote unquote, clean this up a few weeks ago in minicamp when he's just like, oh, I traded one one Hall of Famer for another one. And and he's just like, oh, yeah, well, I did I did kind of leave because of the uncertainty of Rodgers.
Sure, absolutely. That doesn't mean a damn thing when you're actually on the field. Devante Adams is not going to stand around and go, oh, yeah, oh, yeah, Derek Carr is better than Aaron Rodgers. He just called Aaron Rodgers, in his opinion, the best quarterback. Was he referring to all time or right now? Yeah, it don't matter. Even if we say right now.
OK, sure. Now, I don't think too many people would argue with that, no matter what order you want to put the top QBs. Do you want to say Aaron is the best guy because he's a reigning MVP? Do you still want to put Brady there? Do you want to put Mahomes there? Do you want to put Josh Allen there?
You can make an argument for any of them. Aaron Rodgers is still one of the best. And for Devante Adams to say.
In practice, when we're preparing, everybody is is on a heightened level of awareness is legitimate. And I don't think there's not a damn big deal about it to say that Aaron Rodgers in practice and preparation has the Jordan effect. I don't think that's an indicator of his leadership. I don't think that's an indicator of what he does in the off season. I think that's just an indicator of when Aaron Rodgers is on the field.
He is a bad, you know what? And everybody has to pay attention. The defense has to pay attention.
The offense has to pay attention because nobody wants the best player on the field looking at you going. The hell are you doing? Get it together.
Because that has a real trickle down. It makes you go, who? What am I doing? If we think about Michael Jordan, all the stories that we heard and learned, especially in his prime and later in his career, they say this. How you prepare and practice will be how you actually perform. You can't half-ass it in regards to preparation. You can't half-ass it when it comes to studying. It's like saying, oh man, I'm going to just go out there and ace this test. And you're not familiar with a damn thing that you're looking at.
The odds of you having success are low. And so here you have one of the best and you got to work with him. It's no different. Last night we talked about Kobe. Man, Kobe at the end of his career made it very clear. Why am I taking these shots? People are so mad at me. They're like, people are so mad at me that I'm jacking up all these shots. It's because I know that this guy on the team with me, he ain't work as hard as I did. There's a better chance of me making it than him.
And so I'm going to keep on shooting. I mean, we have players, these are stars. They're the top of the food chain. They're the top of the food chain on their team.
They're the top of the food chain in the league. And regardless of how you feel about them, they could be crazy. They could be nuts. They could be excellent leaders. They could be bums.
They could be just terrible teammates, but you know this when you're on the court with them, when you're on the field, it's called it. They have it. They have talent. They have it. And when they work, everybody else has to step up.
Otherwise you're going to look worse. Tom Brady's throwing you a pass and you're constantly dropping it. People are looking at you like, how are we supposed to count on you in the biggest moment?
Get your ass up on out of here. Aaron Rodgers, his own misgivings in the playoffs. He told his wide receivers two weeks ago, man, if y'all don't get it together, somebody else is going to come out and, and take your job.
There's nothing surprising about that. That's life in the NFL. And when Aaron Rodgers says it, oh, it's a big deal because it's him.
The man has diarrhea of the mouth at times. He marches to the beat of his own drum. He's been a liar. He hasn't done himself the best of favors in regards to public image over the past several years. But you can't take away that Aaron Rodgers is still one of the best of all time. Ain't no doubt about it. The man is, they got a spot for him in the hall of fame when he calls it quits. And for Davante Adams to say something as simple as Aaron Rodgers has the Jordan effect in regards to practice that when Aaron is there and Aaron is working, Aaron is working.
Everybody has to up the level of their game and be absolutely on it. It's no big deal about it. I'm going to open up the phone lines to you. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS.
It's real simple. Davante Adams saying that Aaron Rodgers has the Jordan effect in practice in regards to preparation. And ain't no big deal. And it's just true.
I'm gonna get your thoughts when we come back. It's the JR Sportbrief show CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio.
It's the great JR, man. Your show so awesome. We appreciate listening to you on a regular basis. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS. It's the JR Sportbrief show CBS Sports Radio. Taking your calls eight five five two one two four CBS.
That's eight five five two one two four CBS. We've been talking about the comments from Davante Adams that Aaron Rodgers, when it comes down to preparation and working together as a team, he has the Jordan effect. When he's out there and when he's playing, everybody has to step it up.
There's a heightened awareness. He's here. The guy is here. Aaron Rodgers is here. Yeah, he's not playing in every preseason game. He's not participating in every practice.
But when he's out there, you know, everybody's got to stand that attention a little bit. And it's no big deal about what Davante Adams said. It's it's not like he, you know, pushed him to the moon. It's it's not like he said, oh, he's an absolutely amazing teammate or he's the best guy. But we noticed Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks that played the game. He's one of the best players in the league. He's one of the most accomplished guys. He's going into the Hall of Fame. And yeah, sure, being at the most important position on the squad and being one of the best to ever do it.
Yeah, I think it says enough for itself. People are going to pay more attention. They're going to perk up when the guy talks, when he says anything.
And then more importantly, when he's out there on the field, getting ready to play. 855-212-4CBS. Greg is calling from Michigan. You're on the JR Sport Reshow. What's up, Greg? Hey, JR. Thanks for taking my call, Mr.
Positive. Before I make my comment, I got to tell you, Shep is the best producer in the biz. I got to tell you, he's genuine and he makes you feel welcomed. To my point, Aaron Rodgers, I totally agree with what you're saying. He's extremely talented, but sometimes he gives that vibe that he's holier than thou.
And it's weird because you're right. The chemistry with Jordan is the same way with Aaron Rodgers in the sense that he doesn't want to become your buddy, but he wants you to just go out there and perform. And I'm surprised with that because, you know, does Aaron Rodgers like me? Does Michael Jordan like me?
Am I good enough? I'm always questioning my abilities because I don't get that brotherly love. And I just, there's something about, like you said, he's just, I don't know, it's hard for you to like Aaron Rodgers.
Yeah, I think as a lot of fans, and thank you, Greg, for calling from Michigan, you made one excellent point. Shep is the best. He's damn good. Let's get Shep all the money in the world. Shep, you need me to write that letter? I wouldn't mind. I got you. Okay.
No problem. And on the other hand of things, when it comes down to Aaron Rodgers, man, I don't, I don't even think it's a matter of, you know, is he my friend or does he like me? I think it's just a matter of coming to a realization that, man, I gotta, I gotta do my job better. Like if he's, if he's playing at this level, then I need my game as well. I don't, I'm not going to say that Michael Jordan didn't have friends. I mean, Michael Jordan was hanging out with his teammates, but when they were out there playing, practicing, he was killing them, challenging them to fights, calling them names like this. There's a respect factor that people have when you're good at, when you're good at what you do, man, there's a different level of respect that you have for people who actually put in the work and you see the results and you feel them. And so I don't think it's a matter of friendship.
I just think it's a matter of, of, of competition, being competitive. Paul, a scholar from Boston, you're on CBS Sports Radio. Good evening, JR, and the hints and allegations.
Now, let me ask you something real quick there, a wise one. When you're stuffing the label liar and diarrhea of the mouth on one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, he's a liar because he said he got a COVID shot and he did it. Is that what you're basing that on?
Yes, that would be lying. Okay, sir. Well, like as you're aware, freedom of religion, freedom of opinion, that maybe was for a reason that we're not fully aware of. And I have a one quick point to disagree with you on. Well, Paul, that is not an issue to be debated. He was asked a question. He was not honest about it. He lied.
His reasonings behind that don't matter. He lied. Okay. Well, we all lie. It's nice to meet you.
Well, Paul, no, no, no, Paul, you're going into, you're going into outer space here. Okay. You are. And it's very, it's very, very simple. I'm not trying to split hairs with you.
I'm not trying to go into Aaron Rogersville as to, you know, what this means or what it doesn't mean, or let's find and identify the meaning of the earth. He lied. That's what it is. What's your next point?
If you're stable enough to have a national, I still disagree. Everyone lies. It's called a white lie. But the other point is, well, Paul, we ain't talking about what a kindergartner says about stealing a piece of candy off the table. We're specifically talking about Aaron Rogers and the comments that he made. He was not honest.
He lied. You are more within your, or well within your right to disagree with me. That is fine. You can go on and make your next point.
Go ahead. When you say he has diarrhea in the mouth or his ability to bring people up to another level, that's key. When I was captain of our state championship wrestling team, I put a quote up on the wall. I said, practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. The philosopher king that I also am on other networks, I say perfection in society and life is an unrealistic and dangerous idea because I've seen people suffer from it.
It depends on the situation. This is the other point. When you have a national ad like Aaron Rogers does, when you get to that level of advertising, you kind of got to be sort of squeaky clean to get to that level because nowadays you're not going to put you up there and represent in private.
Paul, I'm lost. What the hell are you saying to have to do with what I said? I see his ads on TV.
They're funny. If to have a national ad sponsor you, you've got to be vetted. To be vetted, you can't be diarrhea of the mouth and a liar.
They wouldn't put you on national TV. That's the other point. That's inaccurate. This man got his ass whooped. He actually had sponsors who dropped him because of his, what came out of his mouth, because he was not honest.
So to say that he was not punished is also inaccurate. And when I say he has diarrhea of the mouth to, to do what he's done, and thank you, Paul, for calling from Boston, to sit around and tell everybody about your, your ass cleanse, to tell everyone that you're coming and you're going. And, and I'm not going to tell you now, and my future is a beautiful mystery. Man, this guy, every, we know you're good.
Diary of the mouth. No one to shut up. He doesn't. And he does, he doesn't care. And he shouldn't.
He's making $50 million a year. I mean, well, damn. I didn't know also at the same time that we'd have so many, so many thoughts on what a liar is, or what's not honest.
And, well, there's a little white lie. Man, what are we doing here? He might be on that. What, what, what was that? What was that stuff that Aaron Rogers went down to South America to have Shep Ayahuasca Aaron Rogers out right now, like, Capispa? No, Ayahuasca. Yeah. Yeah. Man, let's, let's keep our feet on the ground.
Let me put it that way. It's the JR sport re-show here with you on CBS sports radio. Oh, something interesting happened. I'll tell you, we'll talk about that as well on the other side of the break. You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio.
I'm at work doing security, man. And I listen to your show every night. Hey, man, I am new to your show, but I absolutely love it. It's awesome. This is the best sports talk radio show on the air for sure.
Bar none. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. It's the JR sport brief show here with you on CBS sports radio at the top of the hour. I'm going to bring you a new top six list.
We're going to take a look at some of the, I guess we can call them many faces of baseball. Now that we're getting close to the end of this regular season, at least a couple of more months. Well, damn it. Not even that much. I can't even say a couple of months. Thomas has certainly flown by. We got a little more than a month left in the regular season. We're going to blink. And next week will be September.
It's a shudder to think about it. The fact is we got a couple of guys going for some records here, Albert Pujols, judge, and we're just going to talk about some of the faces like who are the top stars in major league baseball right now? Who the hell is the most famous guy in MLB?
Who should be who should be leading the way for major league baseball? We got a new top six list coming at the top of the hour. But before we do that, I want to get in a few more of your calls here as we've talked about the comments made by Devontae Adams in reference to Aaron Rogers. A matter of fact, instead of me explaining it, this is what Devontae Adams had to say on the pivot podcast about his former quarterback.
It was amazing, man. I mean, you know, I don't, I don't discount anything, you know, that Aaron was able to do for me because, I mean, he's the best quarterback, you know, in my opinion, to play this game. What he did for me was not just about the type of balls or whatever that he threw, you know, great back shoulder, whatever. He had the Michael Jordan effect. He gonna make you play better. He gonna, he gonna bring out your best just by being on the field. It's like, he was a great leader, but it was, it was more so just about, you would always notice in OTA is like, you know, every now and then a guy that's in his what, 15th year at that point or whatever, they get days off in OTA.
So it'd be times where he wasn't practicing and you would just notice people start to like, not, not fall off, not, not practicing hard, but it wasn't the same as when Aaron is out there. Yeah. Not surprising. He called him a great leader and what I call him a great leader with his mouth or no, I sure as hell wouldn't, with his actions.
Yeah, sure. He's the best out there. And I think it's factual when you're the best at what you do and you got people out there that have to work with you, they're gonna, they're gonna elevate what they're doing. They're gonna pay a little bit more attention as opposed to if he's not there.
The practice, practice, his practice example is a great one. Let's get some more of your calls in 855-212-4CBS. Johnny calling from Atlanta. Hey, JR.
I got two things. He, Aaron Rogers is a joint effect cause he made Donald driver, Jordan Nelson and Devontae Adams with no running game. He never got elite at talent around. And the second thing, Aaron Rogers at age. Now he's that old guy at your job. Hey, he can say anything he wants. You know, if you say something, he'll retire and he still pays. So he just come for a check. Yeah. Well, man, when you getting paid $50 million a year, it's not bad to show up for a check now, is it? And there was no guarantee that he was going to return.
Yeah. He, he reminded us about it. It seems like every single week he reminded us about it. Dave is calling from Alabama. You're on CBS sports radio. Hey, evening, JR. Hey, you and chef.
Good, good tag team won the show, man. Yeah. Whoop. There it is.
Go ahead. Hey, check this out. I mean, Aaron Rogers, like you said, Aaron Rogers is good as what he does, but then in some cases the man needs a block of instruction on common sense. You just don't open your mouth and say anything like to the cop to what he has done. And then on top of that, we was always taught think before you speak and in his case of what, and the comments that he made and how he lied and whatever he said, his brains are checked out on them and it's sipping on the my tie in a bikini somewhere.
He, his brain, his brain put on a bikini and was sipping a my tie. That's it. Are you, are you sure your brain isn't doing the same? Oh, hell no, man. I mean, I mean, sure. But other than that, man, I mean, it's like you, you gotta think before you speak, man. You just can't put stuff out there. Well, you, you gotta be well aware of whatever you say and do because we'll follow you around. Well, here's a, here's the thing.
And thank you, Dave, for calling from Alabama, just as you did. People are well within their right to say and feel however they want. But when you're a public figure, you will obviously be scrutinized for it. So I'm not going to take away for, for how he feels or what he thinks he has. Well, he has all the freedom in the world, just like anybody to say what he wants. Doesn't mean it has to make sense.
Doesn't mean he has to be honest and whatever he does. Yeah. He's, he's going to hear about it. Let's go to Baltimore and talk to Mike.
You're on CBS sports radio. Hello? Yes. You're live, Mike.
Go ahead. Yeah. I just want to know why people are hyping up Rogers. Like he's going to do something, you know, this unrelated, but it's true. He's getting paid way too much. And if they can build around him, you know, they like, he's not worth the money that he is. You know what I mean? You know what I'm saying?
He's lost, he's done. So I think if they cut his contract down, like just a little less, they could afford some, like they could get him some more offensive help. Okay.
Maybe defenses too. Like I just think that, you know, his time in the league should be over, you know? Okay. No, I don't. Thank you, Mike. Steve is calling from Atlanta. You're on CBS sports radio. Hey, how are you guys doing, man?
I appreciate you taking my call. I just had two quick points. I think that I've been listening to some of these other callers and I think that people are overlooking how Jordan kind of benefited from the fact that there wasn't as much sports coverage and social media. And for people to think that Aaron Rogers is the first to century leader is just kind of ridiculous.
I mean, we can go all the way back to Broadway, Joe. And I mean, my second point was, you know, Aaron Rogers is a leader. He's a King on the field. And just like a Spartan, like King Leonidas, you want to be around other soldiers. So telling him to step up and comparing him with the whole Jordan effect, I think that's dead on the money. I agree with you. And there's nothing wrong with you wanting people to take accountability and step up to your level.
Like there's nothing wrong with that at all. Well, yeah. Okay.
I understand you agree with me on the, on the ladder. I'm not so sure about the first and it's, it's not related to Aaron Rogers. And sure. In, in 1984, five, six into the nineties, social media didn't exist. Most people didn't have a computer until the, the two thousands and, and the internet wasn't cranking through your phone until what, 98, 97, 99. But Michael Jordan, although there was no social media, he was one of the most famous people on earth. There was a point in time, I would say that he was maybe arguably outside of the other Michael and that being Jackson, the most famous human being on earth. And so I don't, I don't know if that would ring true that Michael was able to play without, you know, quote unquote social media.
You know, he, he had everything on him for the most part. Right. Right. A little bit easier to get away.
Sure. And thank you, Steve, for calling from Atlanta. Did, did Michael Jordan have to worry about TMZ? No, no, he didn't. You know, did he have to worry about a camera phone? No, he didn't.
Didn't exist. And I'm sure, yeah, there are people that would give him a pass, slide in here, slide out there. Absolutely. Man.
I couldn't tell you who was more famous than Michael Jordan. This look on the planet. I know it sounds crazy now because we're all connected. You can see what's going on on the other side of the globe. Somebody can pay attention to what's going on on this side of the globe, but he lived in a very different era, you know, to a certain degree. I missed that time.
I really do. And this is from a guy, me as in myself, who was able to create and develop a career and a life utilizing social media, but it was also simple. No Facebook, no Instagram. People could actually talk to each other. You went to dinner and had a conversation. Oh, it was a beautiful time.
I miss it. It's the JR sport re-show here with you on CBS sports radio. I'm going to tell you something that you don't want to miss the top six list in a few minutes. I'm going to tell you about a Los Angeles Laker that was traded.
Yeah, tonight. And no, it wasn't Russell Westbrook. Sorry. I'll tell you about that trade on the other side of the break. And then I will bring you a new top six list. We're going to talk about stars, big stars, the biggest stars in major league baseball. Who's the biggest one who should be leading the way. I'll tell you that as well. The JR sport reef show CBS sports radio.
