It's the JR Sport Brief show here on CBS Sports Radio. Happy Wednesday night. Happy Thursday morning to you. I don't know where you live. I don't know what you're doing. You could be anywhere in the world. You could be in Europe right now. It could be early in the morning for you.

I know this. I'm gonna be hanging out here with you for the next two hours. Thank you to everybody listening. My friends in Hawaii, Alaska. Here with me in Phoenix, Arizona. People in Miami and New York and Chicago. Just Wisconsin, Canada, Toronto, Edmonton.

Just everywhere okay. I'm being joined by super producer and host Dave Shepherd. He is in New York and it's been a busy day.

A busy night. Russell Westbrook has been traded to the Utah Jazz. He probably won't stick around. He'll probably cut him and he'll be a free agent. Probably the Clippers are a good idea. Mike Conley to Minnesota. D'Angelo Russell. He's back to the Lakers so let's see how that trade works out. Let's get the response from LeBron whenever we get it because it will come and let's see what happens with Mr. Russell Westbrook.

The future Hall of Famer that where can he play? If you missed a minute of the show you can always hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. That's fun.

Go ahead and do it. We talked about my experience today at the Waste Management Pro-Am here in Scottsdale, Arizona. I never seen so many people hanging out on a Wednesday afternoon. I'm like what are these people doing? They don't have jobs.

They're eating fancy food and drinking beer and wine and having parties. People are trying to get picked up. Some people are trying to get picked if you get my drift.

A few people were trying to get picked up but it was fun going for the people having fun. And then there's a million press conferences going on here in Phoenix. Right before the break I shared with you one of the press conferences from Demore Smith. He's like listen we don't need an NFL combine. It's an unfair process to our our NFL prospects. They've they've been prospects since they were in college.

Since they were in high school. You've seen them play. You know who can drop a ball. You know who can catch one.

Figure it out. But I'm sure we'll spend more time with this over the next several weeks and next several months as we get closer and closer to the NFL combine. I don't think it's going anywhere. Makes everybody too much money.

Specifically the entities that broadcast it and sponsor it. And then also it's Wednesday night into Thursday morning. I'm gonna deliver to you a new top six list.

It's what I do. And there's a there's a good reason and there's a good explanation and a good topic for tonight. Because we're going to take a look at the top six active athletes who cannot catch a break. For various reasons. I'll walk you through this and there's there's a reason that this list has been inspired.

It's very simple. For various reasons. There are a lot of athletes who just can't catch a break. What about Russell Westbrook? I mean would would Russell Westbrook be eligible for this list? Here you have an individual as I just mentioned going into the Hall of Fame. But he can't catch a break. Is it his fault?

Is it people around him? Let's see. For your benefit you don't have to wait too much longer. Because I'm gonna get into the list right now. Let's play the funky music. Six five four three two one.

Two one. It's time to get JR's latest top six list only on the JR Sport Brief. It's the JR Sport Brief show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. It's time for a new top six list. We're going to take a look at the top six active athletes in the world of sports who cannot catch a break.

For various reasons. Here you need an example? I won't give you one. I'll just give you this number right out of the break. Go ahead.

Number six. Imagine being a professional athlete in your prime. 28 years old. Imagine being a champion, an all-star, a rookie of the year, one of the best defenders. Just imagine being one of the best. Potentially on a Hall of Fame trajectory. Imagine becoming a free agent and everybody going whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.

You got a plate in your ankle? Imagine being Carlos Correa. I'm sorry he couldn't catch a break this offseason but it's a pretty hilarious process. The man signs a wait and see deal with Minnesota last year.

He performs well. Two 91-22 home runs on a mediocre Minnesota team. He then gets an offer from the Giants. 13 years, $350 million.

Obnoxious as hell. The deal was ridiculous. The day of the press conference the Giants said whoa whoa whoa wait a minute that man has a plate in his ankle from when he was in the minors.

But we don't think it's going to age well. The New York Mets then say we'll sign you to a 12-year $315 million deal and then the New York Mets go whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa. You got a plate in your ankle. And so Carlos Correa then has to go back to the Minnesota Twins who then offer him a six-year deal, $200 million.

You don't have to be a mathematician to understand. There's a difference between $200 million, $350 million and 13 years, $6 million. Look Carlos Correa is not going broke. But this entire offseason situation for a man who says I've never even had to get treatment on my ankle since the surgery.

This has been a hard-knock life for Carlos Correa. And to go back to Minnesota and accept an offer less than what they initially gave him which was $285 million. Here take $200 million and shut up. It's like it's like you went back to the ex-girlfriend and said please baby I tried with the Giants I tried with the Mets please baby take me back. Carlos Correa was asked about having to go back to the Minnesota Twins, the third team.

Listen. What do you have to say to the fans who feel like this was not your first choice and this was the third pick for you? Well Minnesota was always in that small group of teams that I told Scott at the beginning of a free agency.

You know the whole free agency process. It's a very complicated process as we know and a lot of things happen along the way. But at the end of the day all that matters is that I'm here. I'm going to represent this city. I'm going to represent this organization.

I'm going to do it the right way. I'm going to play hard every single day. I'm going to be out there in the community helping as much as I can. And all that matters is what I do from this moment forward for this organization. I'm really focused on that. I'm really focused on giving my all. Me and my family are going to be very dedicated to the city and that's going to be for a long time.

So we're very happy and excited. Yeah man whatever. You didn't want to be there.

You're only back there because they were the last team to give you some cash. Carlos Correa. This man couldn't catch a break this off season and it's because everybody thinks his ankle is eventually going to break. Carlos is number six. Who's at this number?

Number five. Oh my God. This dude's path back has been nuts. Imagine just blowing up your leg one year and then blowing up your leg another year and now you're 33 years old.

Let me just get to it. It's Klay Thompson. It's Klay Thompson. This man is blowing out knees and Achilles in consecutive years. He's in his early 30s. He comes back and he plays like crap and then you got guys like like Charles Barkley who basically said this at the beginning of this season.

Listen. There was a time when Klay Thompson was the best two-way guard in the NBA and he's not the same guy and that's because of injuries. Now is he done? No I don't think he's done. I think he's slowing down and he's catching up with that's why he's frustrated. Yeah the man tore his ACL then he tore his Achilles. He's been gone for two years.

It feels like longer than that. He's been rusty but Klay Thompson's numbers are they're pretty similar to where his career numbers have been forever. He's rounding into shape. He's dropping 40 points like it's nothing. He's averaging 21 on 40% from downtown. This is Klay Thompson-esque. He seems to be quote-unquote back and he just turned 33 like today. Happy birthday to Klay Thompson. At the beginning of the season when he was just rounding into form he did not appreciate Barkley making those comments. Listen. You know it hurts when you know someone like Charles Barkley with the platform he has says you're not the same player prior to the injuries you have.

It's like no duh man. Consecutive years. I tore my ACL and my Achilles in consecutive years and still help a team win a championship.

I mean it hurt hearing that because it's like man I put in so much freaking effort to get back to this point like it's hard to even put into words what I had to do to be the player I am today and it's like I played 55, 57 games in three years like give me some freaking time to get that back and just hear someone say oh he's not the same prior to the as he was prior to injuries like duh like who goes through something like that and comes back I don't know it just hurt my heart hearing that. You know Klay Thompson last month averaged 27 points per game. 27 points per game. At the beginning of the season he was averaging 12. He has increased his scoring average just about every single month. He's only played three games we just got to February. He's dropping 24 points a game. He just scored 42 in the last one.

I think it's safe to say that Klay Thompson is feeling good and he's back. This man couldn't catch a break but now he's breaking ass. Let's move on to the next number.

Number four. Speaking of breaking ass this guy literally catches a break every year and now he's a free agent and he's going to go to a new team and he's going to get hurt there as well. His name is Jimmy Garoppolo.

I don't need an explanation. Okay Kyle Shanahan just told everybody last week is it really over for Jimmy G? Kyle Shanahan's like yeah it's it's over here for Jimmy G. After this man Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot even Tom Brady he was talking to Jim Gray. Jim Gray asked him about Jimmy Garoppolo on their Let's Go podcast.

Let's listen to a little bit of foreshadowing here with Tom Brady. Tom Brady talked about how yeah the NFL is tough and some guys are just always busted up. Listen Jimmy G boy that was that was quite upsetting to see the broken foot.

He struggled so hard to get back. The team kind of moved on with Trey Lance and he comes in and does well. They big season in front of them. He's doing great possibly you know playoff run and who knows what can happen and then this. Yeah just really tough injury and the injuries are playing a pro. I saw Lamar Jackson got hurt yesterday. Jimmy's out for the year. Lamar injured his knee. You saw Trevor Lawrence got rolled up on pretty good. Matt Stafford is out for you know the year basically.

So this is attrition man. It's a hard sport. It's a really hard sport.

It's a it's a it's a it's a sprint when you're at the game and it's obviously a marathon of a season and it's just keeping up that ability to be available for your team is a real challenge and this is this is where football gets really tough. We should have known Tom Brady was quitting man. This man he was doing podcast on Monday nights with Jim Gray talking about how the NFL is dangerous and dudes are getting torn to pieces.

We should have saw the signs and Jimmy Garoppolo coming to a city near you to not play. Top six active athletes who cannot catch a break. Whoa what's the next number?

Number three. This is another dude. Just over the years he has started to dare I say break down. This man was supposed to be one of the greatest baseball players. He was supposed to be the LeBron James. Well that's Bryce Harper but this guy was supposed to break every record and go down as the greatest ball player ever. But now he can't stay on the field and then even when he's on the field his team can't win. His team doesn't go to the playoffs. His owner sucks.

His owner says I'm going to sell the team and then he says no I want to stick around. It's Mike Trout. He's going to be 32 years old in August.

32. We just found out this past season where he only played 119 games that Mike Trout is suffering from a spinal condition. He talked about it and had to let everybody know whoa guys wait a second I'm not retiring.

I'm not going anywhere. This is just something that I have to manage my entire career and it's like okay Mike Trout but are we supposed to believe that you're going to be fine this whole way? Before the 2019 season this man signed a 12 year 426 million dollar deal. You gonna be good when you almost 40 bro? At the rate you're going 2018 he plays 140 games. 2019 he plays 134. 2020 we know is crap. 2021 he played 36 games.

2022 with this spinal thing he only played 119. Mike Trout is just this is a sad situation. He's making all this money. Angels haven't been to the playoffs since 2009. Artie Moreno he throws money at bums outside of him and Otani. The pitching has just been terrible and now he's sticking around.

He doesn't want to sell the team. Since he purchased it after the World Series the Angels have been nothing and Mike Trout is he gonna win more MVPs? Is he gonna play the outfield?

Is he gonna be able to move around? I see more of Mike Trout cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles. I'm sure you'll see him on Super Bowl Sunday. I see him more at NFL games with the Eagles than I do on the field for the Angels. Mike Trout can't catch a break.

His bank is getting all the money though. Top six active athletes who can't catch a break. People don't give him a break. What's the next number?

Number two. This is nuts. Somebody called last night. A couple of nights ago it seems like somebody calls every night and says JR we've never seen a running quarterback win a Super Bowl.

My research from the past 30 years has shown me that a running quarterback has never won the Super Bowl. I'm like well damn bro times have changed. Where you been? Have you been watching?

Have you been paying attention? This man cannot catch a break. He's actually playing in the Super Bowl this Sunday. His name is Jalen Hurts. The man has improved as a passer.

He is a dual threat with his legs. You have certain individuals who only want to give him credit for his offensive line and the new weapons that Roseman has been able to bring in over the past few seasons whether traded with Brown, whether drafted with Smith and Jalen Hurts they don't give him a break. They don't want to give him his credit where it's due and it's sad even here in the Super Bowl. What will people say on Monday morning Sunday night if Jalen Hurts is a champion? We still gonna have people calling up and saying oh you running quarterback will never win.

That'll die down quick won't it? Matter of fact Jalen Hurts understands that there are people out there who don't believe in him and his talent. That this is like a fluke. He sat down with Matt Hausselbeck on ESPN and he was asked that same question. People who don't give him credit for being able to throw the football.

Listen. You and Patrick Mahomes number one and number two highest QBR as a pocket passer. Why do you think people sleep on you as a pocket passer? I think beauty's in the eye of the beholder.

I play the game in a very unique way. Me personally being able to be consistent in the running game be consistent in the passing game and mentally know what my plan is and knowing what I want to do based off of my preparation and I think that's the beautiful part about all of this is everybody has an opinion about something but everybody in their opinions don't deposit at the bank. Wow everybody and their opinions don't deposit at the bank. Man he's backed everything up he has proven himself over the past several years all the way from Alabama up until now and Jalen Hurts has an opportunity to win a Super Bowl.

Maybe those opinions yeah they may not cash at the bank but he's going to cash out at the bank and he might cash out as a Super Bowl champion. It's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. We're talking about the top six active athletes who cannot catch a break. There's always something there's always an issue. Maybe they don't get the credit maybe they're hurt.

It's like there always has to be something wrong. I'm going to give you number one on the other side of the break. It's the JR Sport Reshow CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey I was going to say I appreciate you taking my call and I love the show and always respect your opinion. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS.

It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. I'm bringing you a new top six list. We're taking a look at athletes right now active athletes who can't catch a break. There's always something wrong. There's always an issue. There's always something to pick apart.

There's just always something. Here I'm about to reveal to you number one on the list. Let me give you a quick recap and if you missed the list last segment, if you missed the full explanations, if you want to hear the audio you can hit rewind on the free odyssey app. But right now at number six I gave you Carlos Correa. He couldn't catch a break this offseason. He still got paid but not what he thought he was going to get from the Twins, the Giants, the Mets and then he had to go back to the Twins who said we ain't giving you what we originally planned 285.

Here's 200. He had to go crawling back to get a contract to get a deal because nobody trusted in his ankle. He couldn't catch a break to save his life this offseason. At number five is Klay Thompson tearing his achilles and before that his ACL. Charles Barkley pretty much said yeah he's on the downside and Klay Thompson's like damn bruh can I get healthy? Klay Thompson has been lighting it up over the past month averaging about 27 points per game more than 40 percent from downtown. At number four athlete who can't catch a break Jimmy Garoppolo.

Self-explanatory. He's just broken. At number three I gave you Mike Trout. Mike Trout is making a boatload of money 426 million dollars. He hasn't really been healthy over the past several seasons. Now he has a back issue. He is better off being a superfan for the Eagles than playing center field for the Angels.

He can't catch a break. At number two I gave you someone who Mike Trout will be rooting for in the Super Bowl and that's Jalen Hurts. The man is one victory away from being a Super Bowl champ. He's climbed up from from being a transfer to being benched in college. He's he's had to prove himself in the NFL.

He's one victory away from the Super Bowl and there's still some folks who won't give him credit for his style of play. And so when you think about athletes who can't catch a break can't can't can't catch recognition I can't even speak it boils down to this and this is a prime example because we had someone call earlier in the show and give a great example. What's the last number? Number one. At number one top six active athletes who cannot catch a break. Yeah you know it. It's the man who now has more points than anybody in NBA history.

38,390. It's LeBron James. You want to know why he can't catch a break? Here take a listen to one of our callers from last hour.

I just wanted to call in and let you know I'm just tired of all these arrogant athletes like Kyrie and Rogers and LeBron and all of them are making me sick especially LeBron because the man has literally insulted two women in my life who I love the most my mom and my aunt. He has the arrogance to start this school where he thinks he's an educator. Well my mom has worked as a public educator for over 30 years in a public school and he starts up this charter school thinking he can do a better job than people. My aunt her name is Karen she's one of the nicest ladies in the world and that fool has the nerve to discriminate against people based on a name. I mean a man who claims to be against discrimination and has all these causes he comes out and calls a woman a courtside Karen. Well he ain't thinking about all the people named Karen and that's why I want to say uh the uh name LeBron is gonna be associated with an arrogant pseudo intellectual with a lot of money. I wish I remembered that guy's name I don't remember his name it's not important. Let's just call that guy jackass.

I think that's fitting. There are people who feel this way about LeBron James for what? What do you do to anybody? Tell me what he's done beside oh China he's oh he said this to China he's a hypocrite. Oh my god he uh well he did the decision oh terrible. Like but but I never heard that one before he built a school for kids. Well where's let's find everybody all over the world who decided to build a school and not have an educational background but have the money to finance one let's call them jackasses and jackasses and jerks too. Oh my god he's he called the lady courtside Karen oh my god the world is ending. What about average Joe oh Joe all the Joes in the world are in such a terrible place because they're all average.

All the Debbies are down. LeBron James man no he's not perfect but I mean damn what he's done in his life is exemplary. Everything that he's done has been in public eye from a professional perspective a personal perspective and if you look at the big picture it's absolutely amazing but some people couldn't follow directions or look at a map or figure out where to go if you put it right in front of their face. Some people can't look at the big picture from where he's been from what he's accomplished and this is bigger than basketball this is not about no dumb ass goat conversation. You look at the totality of his life and public view and where he's come from absolutely amazing and he'll never be able to catch a break because people will always find the one issue that they take offense to and won't be able to look at the big picture the greater part of the story. LeBron can't catch a break.

It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. You know what if you're speaking of the goat conversation and maybe if you want to call him arrogant call him arrogant for what he said last night don't call him arrogant for building a damn school. This is LeBron last night asked about his standing in the basketball world listen to the question listen to his answer. LeBron everyone talks about who the goat is how would you describe the goat and where would you put yourself in that conversation?

I don't know man you know for me you know I think it's great barbershop talk it's going to happen forever and ever. You know if I was the GM or whatever the case may be of a franchise that was starting up and I had the number one pick I'll take me but that's just me because I believe in myself. I know what I bring to the table. You know a guy that's been able to transform his game over the course of 20 years to be able to play any position in this league and excel at any position. You know I can play one through five. You know I've led the league in assists.

You know I've been able to do whatever this this game has wanted me to do and also just transform my game as well. Yeah if you want I don't think he's being arrogant he's he's being honest and why wouldn't he call himself the best why wouldn't he select himself why wouldn't he have confidence there ain't no problem with that but if you want to call him arrogant for that that makes a whole lot of sense not because the man built a school. It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio 855-212-4CBS 855-212-4CBS. Tell me who is an active athlete who can't catch a break? They're always doing something wrong. Something goes wrong for them. People are on their damn back. On their damn back.

There's always an issue. Who can't catch a break? I'm gonna get to your calls on the other side. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio.

Hey JR. How are you? You know what I wanted to say was that I love your top six list. Those things are awesome. I don't call into radio stations but this is the second time you've made me call in because I just love your list so much. It's fun to listen to. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. That's right.

It's the JR Sport Brief Show on CBS Sports Radio and I just gave you a new top six list every Wednesday night into Thursday morning. It's what I do and tonight we took a look at some of the athletes who cannot catch a break. It doesn't matter what they do. Something goes wrong. They're always at fault. There's always an issue. They can't catch a break.

That's just how I can describe it. At number six I gave you Carlos Correa. At number five I gave you Clay Thompson. Coming off of injury he couldn't even catch a break. At number four I gave you Jimmy Garoppolo.

Always broken. At number three I gave you Mike Trout. He's making a lot of money but his career trajectory isn't what everybody expected it to be with his back almost in shambles. He says he'll be okay. At number two it's the man who will be playing in the Super Bowl representing the Philadelphia Eagles.

It's jail and hurts. This man gets crapped on. He can't throw the football. He can't throw the football. And at number one you want to talk about an active athlete who can't catch a break.

This guy could find a cure for modern diseases and people will still find an issue with him. It's LeBron James. 8-5-5-2-1-2 for CBS. That's 8-5-5-2-1-2 for CBS.

Name an athlete who cannot catch a break. Let's go ahead and talk to Wade from Atlanta. You on CBS Sports Radio.

Thanks JR. When it comes to that question I got to go with my guy Matt Ryan. I mean you're looking at a guy that was on some really good Falcon teams.

Tony Gonzalez, Roddy White, Michael Turner. I mean they had some good squads you know back in the day and whether if it was a 17 to nothing lead, an NFC championship against the 49ers. There was a time in 2018 where Matt he threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns.

No picks against the Bengals. Lost the game. And then I think the week before he threw for five touchdowns against the Saints and they lost the game. And then you know you got all that and then the whole Super Bowl which he happened to be had a top five passer rating of all time in that game.

And they still managed to lose. Only quarterback to lose in the top 10 for passer rating in Super Bowl history. And now he's going to the Colts that you know it's supposed to be a perfect game for Matt. Great offensive line, good running game, good receivers. And we saw how that turned out. So I hate it for my guy Matt but I still think his legacy cemented as really great quarterback.

It's just unfortunate they never came out on the top. Absolutely. Thank you Wade for calling from Atlanta.

Great call. Yet Matt Ryan is underappreciated in Atlanta. He hung on too long or I should say the team hung on to him for too long. Trying to squeeze whatever they cut out of him when he should have been gone. But he is the greatest and most accomplished quarterback in Falcons history. He'll be appreciated more when he's out the door.

But right now people are just looking for the next guy. 855-212-4CBS. 855-212-4CBS.

Name an athlete who cannot catch a break. John is calling from Toronto. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

Oh thanks a lot for taking the call. I wanted to mention a baseball player. He did win something in Houston, center fielder.

Signed a big contract here. First two seasons due to injuries to him. His finger and he ran into one of his players the next year trying to catch a ball. Well to save people this is George Springer correct? George Springer yeah he was in Houston.

So he came over here signed a contract you know in hundreds of millions right. The center fielder because he's you know got a golden glove or whatever. And two years in a row we miss out by one game you know to the wild card you know.

Yeah well good luck good luck into the future. I don't know as he continues to age if things are going to be better he's going to be or he actually he should be. Well they put him in the right field now.

He's not going to be sent they've signed some other you know award-winning center fielder. Well by the time they by the time aren't they building a new stadium up there am I wrong? Okay no it's the old stadium with renovations. Oh are they still going to be running around on that carpet? Yeah that's what I think a lot of players don't like the carpet and I wouldn't myself like the carpet. You know expect George Springer to be broken more throughout the the seasons and if they're going to be running around on a carpet covering concrete.

That sucks. 855-2124 CBS that's 855-2124 CBS an athlete who cannot catch a break. Ryan is calling from Boise Idaho you're on CBS sports radio. Yeah how you doing?

I'm amazing Ron what's on your mind? Give me that athlete. That's awesome well the athlete I would say is Kyrie Irvin but before I get to him can I say I got an issue with LeBron being up there. Before you do that go ahead and tell me why you believe Kyrie Irvin can't catch a break. Well okay so Kyrie Irvin can't catch a break because one I think just the media hype around him has been exorbitant for for a bit now.

You go back to the the flatter thing and how that ever even came to life is kind of beyond me. I mean it was secretly recorded on a what a bus ride or a plane flight on a like a conversation between teammates. No that was a public that was a public conversation where he was speaking to the media. I think it got brought up by the media but I think it was initially just recorded no like on a bus ride. He verbally said that to the media but continued.

Right okay and then you got the the COVID stuff that that kind of you know played out and we all saw how that that went you know in a place in New York where they had to actually go back and and pay the so wait people that were laid off help help me help me out here Ryan. Why do you feel Kyrie has not caught a break? You're saying that it has been just the media outrage right?

Correct me if I'm wrong the coverage of it right? I think I think it's the I think it's the coverage and I think it's out of the people that should know and know about him as an athlete and as a person. I mean Kyrie's a sensitive guy right? I mean that's what that's what it all boils down to.

Wait wait wait wait wait wait this is but I'm trying to understand very simply here because I think the opposite. You feel that there is outrage surrounding Kyrie yes or no? I I think undue attention.

I didn't I didn't ask you that. Who you you at you said that you feel that there is extra media attention surrounding Kyrie? Yeah I agree with that. My point to you is it's created by himself he's doing it so if I'm thinking about individuals who quote unquote can't catch a break yeah you can put Kyrie on there but it's him. If I go out into into the middle of the street with a gasoline tank and a match and I stand there with it and I just light the the tank on fire I can't be mad when I get burned. I think it's more of a making a mountain out of molehills type of thing.

No if there was well Ryan. People know he's a sensitive guy. No it has nothing to do with sensitive he's not a stupid man. When you have as many instances as he has over the past six years whether it's matters of basketball or whether it's personal matters it's not just about COVID it delves into him disappearing it delves into comments on flat earth it delves into him changing his mind about where he wants to play it delves into him making commitments and then breaking them it delves into him not being professional I can go on and on should I? Well when you talk about the the breaking commitments and changing where he plays um you go back to the Celtics that was not a good fit from day one he you know but that's not that's not the point that's not the point most people know and this is Kyrie's this listen to this man go back and listen to what he said a few days ago he says I myself have been defensive I myself have made mistakes this is the point he has opened up his mouth about many issues many times and almost every time where something has been controversial he said sorry for it I don't know if I'd put Kyrie Irving into the get off my back you can't start a fire and get mad when you get burned it's the JR Sport Reshow on CBS Sports Radio I'm gonna get some more of your calls on the other side athletes who can't catch a break Tess here I've always had problems sleeping and once I fall asleep I couldn't stay asleep I searched getting to sleep ASAP so check this out sleep asap is a real product by nutra strips it's not a pill or drug it's this amazing little thin strip you put right on your tongue and it activates immediately tastes great too best night's sleep ever go to my sleep asap.com and discover how you can try a full month supply free that's my sleep asap.com Tess here I've always had problems sleeping and once I fall asleep I couldn't stay asleep I searched getting to sleep asap so check this out sleep asap is a real product by nutra strips it's not a pill or drug it's this amazing little thin strip you put right on your tongue and it activates immediately tastes great too best night's sleep ever go to my sleep asap.com and discover how you can try a full month supply free that's my sleep asap.com Tess here I've always had problems sleeping and once I fall asleep I couldn't stay asleep I searched getting to sleep asap so check this out sleep asap is a real product by nutra strips it's not a pill or drug it's this amazing little thin strip you put right on your tongue and it activates immediately tastes great too best night's sleep ever go to my sleep asap.com and discover how you can try a full month supply free that's my sleep asap.com attention sports fans your favorite sports book betus.com is back for a 28th year of nfl action with the industry's biggest sign-up bonus of up to 200 bet us offers our members the opportunity to cash in on all your favorite leagues including nfl nba mlb and more we've also got hundreds of new casino games including the coolest European slots and our live dealers are waiting for you at the tables you need a sports book with integrity integrity longevity and you need to know you're gonna get paid you need a sports book that offers everything including live betting mma golf horses esports and all kinds of crazy bets call today at 1-800-79-betus that's 1-800-79-betus and they will walk you through setting up an account nobody in the industry gives better bonuses than bet us join now mention bet us 2022 and you can get up to 200 and bonuses on your first deposit nobody beats that head to betus.com and join today that's bet us where the game begins you
