JR believes that Derek Carr and the Jets are a match made in mediocrity

We're talking about people talking about your family, what they don't know about your family, or your brother, or you... How does one handle that from a day-to-day basis? Something I joke about with the young bucks all the time. I said, if you would Vanity Search Matt Hardy on Twitter, I said, after you got through 100 replies, you'd want to quit the business and never be seen again.

It's just, you just learn to deal with it, you know what I mean? It's the Kick Rocks Wrestling Podcast with Evan T. Mack. Subscribe now on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. I'm here with you, everybody listening all over North America. If you've never listened before, where the hell you been? If you listen all the time, welcome back.

If you don't know what a weeknight is, I help you out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and tonight, Friday. Don't look for me tomorrow.

Anyway, it's a busy night, a lot of things to discuss, a lot of things to go through, a lot of things to talk about. Michael Jordan is 60 years old. Happy birthday, Michael Jordan. We're going to talk about Michael Jordan next hour. Something that Michael Jordan helped popularize pretty much the entire game of basketball, the NBA All-Star game is this weekend. It's NBA All-Star weekend.

It's taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I mean, damn. D.K. Metcalf, he might want to switch over from the Seattle Seahawks and just join, I don't know, the closest team.

Join the Portland Trailblazers. That man was flying all over the place. We'll talk about D.K. Metcalf in a few minutes. The NBA Rising Stars game is underway as well this evening. We've got the dunk contest, three-point, all that stuff tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, Derek Carr, former Raiders quarterback, is going to be checking in with the New York Jets.

I guess that is mediocrity meets mediocrity. The Kansas City Chiefs, their Super Bowl celebration goes on. Travis Kelce, I thought we had enough of that dude, and he's doing the nighttime talk shows. In a couple of weeks, Travis Kelce is going to be on Saturday Night Live, and he just won't be on it. He's going to be a host. Eric Bienemy finally has a job. The Washington commanders hired Eric Bienemy, reportedly, to be their new offensive coordinator.

Eric Bienemy won't be staying with the Chiefs. Bernie Williams is going to join us tonight. Yeah, All-Star, World Series champion, batting champion, just Bernie Williams.

Absolutely amazing for the New York Yankees, holding it down in center field, gold glove. It's like Bernie Williams won everything. Bernie Williams is going to join us now that baseball and spring training is just now getting underway. I want to talk to Bernie about just all these ridiculous rule changes in baseball because I guess the game needs it.

I would or could imagine. And then you got some guy you probably heard in the news today. His name is Tiger Woods.

Tiger Woods had to apologize for his little joke. And so we got a lot to do, a lot to talk about. I certainly want to start off here with all of the NBA All-Star festivities. Before we get going, Shep, are you excited for NBA All-Star weekend? Are you ready for it? I'm more excited to be with you, Jared, than I am about the lame ass slam dunk contest on Saturday night, my friend.

How are you? Are you excited for it? Wow. Yeah, yeah, I'm excited. Yeah, I don't know. I guess not, right?

If I have to think about it that much, I'm not all that excited. Let me tell you something. A few minutes ago, right before we went on air, and by the way, if you want to talk to us, it's simple. 855-212-4CBS.

It's 855-212-4CBS. Here in the studio, I have the Rising Stars game on. And Rising Stars this year, for whatever reason, you always got to switch things up and keep them fresh. It's like four different games. There's four different games with four different teams, and they're playing mini games, and it's no longer, hey, let's run around for two halves and just, you know, fly around and dunk.

It's no longer, at one point it was the United States versus the international team. All that's done. At one point, I saw Scoot Henderson out there with Matt McClung, and I'm like, wait a minute, this is a G-League night team, and that dude is barely in the NBA. So there's a lot going on with this game.

I don't know what it is. But I did sit down and watch the, what do they call it, the Ruffles All-Star Celebrity game. DK Metcalf was out there flying around like he was Amari Stoudemire. Young Amari, straight out of high school, Amari Stoudemire. DK Metcalf finished the game with 20 points, 10 rebounds, 4 blocks, and I get it. It's an All-Star Celebrity game.

Janelle Monae was running around out there, a bunch of other people I don't know were running around. Fat Joe was a coach. Dwayne Wade was a coach. I believe his name is Ryan Smith. He's the owner of the Utah Jazz.

He just bought the team. Ryan Smith, he was coaching along with Dwayne Wade. Shaq sat courtside. Lisa Leslie was there. Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel. Richard Jefferson commentated, refereed, played.

Calvin Johnson. I mean, Albert Pujols played. Chubb, did you see a second of this All-Star game? I did not, no.

It was actually a fun watch. Metcalf I know won the MVP. Excuse me? Metcalf won the MVP, I know that. Oh yeah, DK Metcalf. Did you see the dunks that he, you didn't see the dunks?

No, was he T.O. like? No, no, excuse me?

No, no, no, no, no. Don't say that. DK Metcalf, Terrell Owens can play basketball.

Listen to me very carefully. DK Metcalf was flying around like Amari Stoudemire. You get what I'm saying? Understand the difference? I mean, that's a borderline Hall of Famer right there.

No, I'm not talking about all of that. Terrell Owens played basketball. I'll take a jump shot, I'll go for a layup, I'll give you a dunk. DK Metcalf was flying around like young Amari Stoudemire. He was a highlight reel.

And yes, sure, this is an All-Star game. Everybody moved out of his way because he was the biggest, the fastest, the strongest, the most athletic. There were a couple of WNBA stars who were out there. They moved out of his way.

Ain't nobody was trying to be on this guy's poster. He was dunking all over the place. DK Metcalf won MVP and it was a fun game to watch. Francis Tiafoe, he was out there, I don't think he played. Albert Pujols, unfortunately for Albert Pujols, he could not tuck his jersey in.

He could still run and get up and down the court, I was a little surprised about that. He tried to throw somebody an alley-oop. Albert Pujols has only been retired for what now? Three months?

Four months? Albert Pujols looks like he's been retired now for 30 years. His stomach is quite a piece of work. I saw him last week at the Waste Management Invitational. He walked right by me, he didn't look that damn big, but damn, he couldn't tuck his jersey in. Calvin Johnson was there, Calvin Johnson, a former lion, had a dunk. The Miz from WWE had a half-court shot. Didn't count at the end.

And it was just, it was something fun to watch. And I gotta be honest, to your point of what you just said, Shep, I would not be surprised if this celebrity game that I watched tonight, Chris Tucker was there, and Ben Affleck, they were there promoting that Michael Jordan movie, that game might be more entertaining than the dunk contest. And we said this earlier this week, it's a damn shame the dunk contest lacks star power.

There are more stars participating in the three-point shootout than there will be stars in the actual dunk contest. Kenyon Martin Jr. Okay, Kenyon Martin's kid.

Mac McClung. This man is not a real Philadelphia 76er. He plays for the G-League team.

The Delaware Whatevers. Trey Murphy from the Pelicans. Nobody knows who he is. You got Jericho Sims of the New York Knicks.

People might have found out about him like two weeks ago. You're judges for the All-Star Game. You got a legendary Dominique Wilkins. You have a slam dunk champion as well in Harold Minor. Lisa Leslie, Lisa Leslie could dunk, used to could dunk.

Jamal Crawford. And then you have Karl Malone, who in most cities would be booed. There is your slam dunk contest.

And then if you think about everybody participating in the three-point contest, a little bit more entertaining. We actually have stars. Stars there. Tyrese Halliburton, a first-time All-Star. Tyler Hero. Buddy Heald, he can shoot the lights out. Laker fans wish he was a Laker. Kevin Hurter of the Kings. Damian Lillard, Hall of Famer, one of the NBA's all-time greats.

Laurie Markinen, representing the Utah Jazz as a first-time All-Star. You have Jason Tatum, who's on his way to building himself a Hall of Fame career. And then you got Julius Randle, who I don't know why the hell they put him in here as a replacement for Anthony Simons.

They couldn't find anybody else? They put Julius Randle? He's cracking like 30 percent of his threes. Just because he likes to take the damn shot doesn't mean you got to put him in the contest. And speaking of someone who doesn't need to be anywhere, Zion Williamson is sitting courtside at the Rising Stars game. And there's not a minute that I look at Zion that I just want to go, he's a spectator just like me. He's putting up the same numbers as I am. And it's a damn shame that we won't see Zion flying around on just All-Stars Sunday night. It's a damn shame. We got all these stars.

We got all these legends. Half the guys I feel are hurt. Giannis sprained his wrist yesterday, I believe he'll play. You got Joel Embiid talking about his feet. Kyrie Irving is on a new team. Donovan Mitchell, Tatum, Durant can't play.

Jalen Brown broke his face. LeBron James is just going to go out there and try to win All-Star MVP. The game will be the same damn thing we get every single year. Let's give people some highlights.

Let's try to play tough at the end of the game. Everyone will go home happy and these dudes will get on planes to go on vacation. The other interesting element that we actually heard about and went widespread this morning is that yes, all of the All-Stars will be selected by the captains. The teams will be put together by Giannis and LeBron. But in order to avoid one All-Star is picked last. In order to avoid hurting one of these guys damn feelings. The NBA is going to have LeBron James and Giannis select the reserves first.

They heard me correctly instead of, I don't know, DeMar DeRozan. Maybe Halliburton, maybe Drew Holiday, maybe Siakam, maybe Lori Marken. In order to avoid one of these dudes being selected last. They're just going to pick the bench guys first. So nobody gets their feelings hurt being the last All-Star.

I mean damn, how soft has the world gotten? These dudes are making millions of dollars. You can't sit on national television and get picked last? Is it that much of an ego drop? If you can't be selected last in the All-Star game, do you need to be an All-Star?

Is it that offensive? That DeMontez Sabonis is the last dude selected? What is his ego blown? Shep, what do you think about the NBA trying to, I don't know, coddle these players? Man, it seems like Adam Silver is very quick to put the refs on the bus with a two-minute report and saying that there's accountability, but it seems like with the players, this is in line, lock, step and barrel with the era of load management. You can't tell a player what to do anymore because, and you said it JR, how much money these guys are now making, the guaranteed contracts, the $50 million annual year guys, even Russell Westbrook is making that kind of money.

So they have the leverage and so because of that they are going to cater and completely botch the coaches and just absolutely tiptoe around the players' egos. You know, you're going to play Michael Jordan tonight. Michael Jordan wouldn't want this. Kobe wouldn't want this. Tim Duncan wouldn't want this. This is a new school era that you and I are one to be a part of for sure. Well, I'm sure.

I want to know who came up with this. You know, it was a little bit of a joke last year when James Harden was there and LeBron James and Kevin Durant didn't want to select him and it didn't have anything to do with talent. It was all about, hey, James Harden just wanted to leave my team. I ain't picking him to play with him. But the NBA, live to, I don't know how many people will watch, 20 million people, 18, 15, whatever it is, they don't want to have this one player embarrassed being picked last?

Come on now. It's going to make or break his career? It's going to scar him for life? Yeah. I mean, maybe Ryan Smith said something because of the blasphemy and the disdain that LeBron and KD had towards Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. You remember that when they got on their dais, so to speak, as captains and they basically picked the last two guys as the Utah Jazz members? You remember that? Well, what do you think?

I don't know if that would be that far. They don't want to do that to Markinan, who's obviously their guy. Do you think Lori Markinan, in all things considered, do you believe Lori Markinan would be the last dude selected?

Yeah. I mean, if I want to win a game, let's be honest, I know Fox, even the replacement guys, JR, are better than Lori Markinan. Markinan is having a better season and Utah got off to a hot start and obviously this is a rebuilding season for them.

And you know, Hardy wasn't considered to be, he was a young up-and-coming coach, no one knew what he was, but in terms of talent level, he might be the least talented guy on both rosters. No. I mean, if I'm trying to win an all-star game, if I want somebody to just go out there and get buckets, I'm probably picking, I don't know, somewhere between, okay, maybe you want Jaron Jackson for defense.

I may leave some bonuses last. I'm trying to go guard heavy, somebody to go up and down the court. I want somebody to play a little defense, just protect the rim or block a shot if necessary because nobody's playing defense. And so I don't think Lori would be the last option. Do you think Lori's better than DeMontez? I think he's a more talented offensive player. I think he's more versatile.

I think DeMontez is a bonus. What does he do? He rebounds and he shoots and he's good around the basket. I think for an all-star game format, if you want someone who can just shoot, someone who just has size, someone who can score, someone who can run the floor, I would take Lori. If you ask me, hey, just in general basketball, who would you want right now?

I would take Lori marketing. I think he hasn't hit his ceiling. We know exactly what DeMontez's bonus is. What do I need rebounds for in an all-star game? Everybody going to be clanking up shots anyway. This isn't exactly Ben Wallace either.

He's going to give you consistently 20 points per game. The difference in scoring is not large. As a rebounder, he is significantly more impressive than Lori marketing is. It's an all-star game. He's a much better facilitator. It's an all-star game.

I get that. Who cares what the big man can do? All-star games ain't for no big man, even in this hour. He's going to grab rebounds? What? He's going to just go down low in the paint?

Like, who cares? Everybody's going to grab a rebound. I want somebody who can score. Lori marketing is a more versatile scorer than DeMontez Sabonis. I'm picking Sabonis last. He's the least at between, and at least, okay, Jokic is probably the least athletic, but he's skilled in many other ways.

Sabonis, and I take Jackson. I'd rather have somebody block shots than worry about rebounds. Everybody's going to go after long-ass rebounds anyway.

They are babysitting these guys. It's not necessary, but welcome to the NBA. The all-star game should be fun regardless, and we got crybabies.

That's just what it is. It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. 855-2124 CBS, 855-2124 CBS. Are you excited for NBA All-Star Weekend? Are you excited for the dunk contest, the three-point shootout? Are you ready for All-Star Sunday night, the actual game?

Probably not. Since we're talking about crybabies, we'll also get into Derek Carr, who's going to be visiting the Jets. You know, we had a great conversation about another crybaby last night. His name is Justin Fields. We'll talk about him as well. We'll get into Travis Kelce, Michael Jordan turns 60.

We're just getting started here. It's the JR Sport Reshow, CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. JR wants to hear from you. Call him now at 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4227. It's the JR Sport Reshow on CBS Sports Radio.

You can reach me everywhere. I'm at JR Sport Brief on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. We got Bernie Williams, New York Yankees legend on the show, joining us later on.

I shared a little snippet of it on social media. There's so many people telling me that Bernie Williams is my favorite Yankee. Bernie Williams doesn't get the respect and love that he deserves.

Listen, Bernie is the man. He basically owned the 90s for the New York Yankees, helped them win the championship. People talk about core four with the Yankees, Andy Pettit and Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada.

They were there for those four championships, those four titles. But I mean, Bernie Williams? Bernie Williams was there too.

Sure, he wasn't there for the last one, but I mean, damn. Bernie is the man. He's so cool. He's chill.

He's a classically trained guitarist. Bernie Williams is the man. We'll get to Bernie later on in the show. Right before we went to break, we're talking about the NBA All-Star Weekend. Are you excited for it?

In a few minutes, I'm going to talk to you about some other crybabies. The NBA, all of the All-Stars will be selected by Giannis and LeBron. They will select the teams prior to the game. But in order to not hurt anybody's feelings, to avoid the, hey, you got picked last. The NBA is having these dudes select the reserves first.

So whoever does get picked last will be a superstar, will be one of the starters, and no one will complain. But we can't hurt Lori Markenin's feelings. We can't hurt Jaron Jackson's feelings. We can't hurt the feelings of DeMonte Sabonis. They don't get paid enough money to not have their feelings hurt. Like 400 plus guys in the NBA, these are the top 20 of them, 25, whatever. What your feelings hurt for?

It's totally unnecessary. 855-212-4CBS, that's 855-212-4CBS. Lee, is he, who is this? I'll mix this stuff up. Are you all right, Lee? Lee from San Diego. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, G.R., what's up, bro? I'm excellent. How are you? I'm doing great, man. First of all, I want to commend you for your work you're doing with the Special Olympics and that cause. It's awesome, man.

Well, thank you. I'm disabled. Did you subscribe? I can wait a little bit. Did you subscribe to the Agents of Inclusion podcast? Did you subscribe yet? No, I haven't yet.

What are you waiting for? I will. Please, okay, thank you.

But I want to talk about your quarterback list, the top six. I think you left somebody out there. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait, from two days ago?

Yes. That was Wednesday night. I couldn't get through that night. Huh? I couldn't get through that night.

I'm sure the phone lines were busy, but most times I wouldn't do this, but go ahead. Yeah, I have Terry Bradshaw right behind. I agree with most of your list, but I have Terry Bradshaw right behind Joe Montana in the number four slot. I wonder what your comments would be about that. You heard the whole show, right? Oh, he's gone. He hung up on himself. We talked about Terry Bradshaw.

We talked about it on Wednesday. There ain't no way in hell I put him on my top six list. I don't care what he accomplished individually. I don't care what MVP he has. I don't care what Super Bowl MVP he has.

I ain't putting him at number four. I gave you about two or three categories. It was Wednesday.

Give me a break. What was your talent level? How long did you play? What did you win? Those are about the three categories. Terry Bradshaw can go ahead and look at what he won.

He can look at his accomplishments, but none of those things even stretch out for some of the other dudes that I mentioned on the list. If you missed my top six list, you can listen to every JR sport brief show on the free Odyssey app. Let's get back to Friday. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. Adam is here from California. You're on the JR sport brief show. Hey, JR. How you doing, man? I'm amazing, Adam. What's up? Well, first off, I just kind of recently started listening to your show, but it's been very entertaining, man, so I appreciate it.

But I just want to talk a little bit about, you know, I feel like the NBA All-Star game has been soft for a while. But you're going to see some fun things out on the phone. Hey, Adam, I'm sorry. Your phone stinks, man. Adam, your phone is absolutely terrible. I'm sorry, Adam.

Phone, we don't know what the hell you're saying. It's the JR sport brief show on CBS Sports Radio. Speaking of terrible, when we come back from break, I want to talk to you about something that is going to take place tomorrow that could actually be an entire nightmare. Derek Carr is visiting the New York Jets.

It could be a match made in mediocrity. Prepare yourselves. It's the JR sport brief show on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS Sports Radio. First of all, I just want to say I've been listening to your show for the last few months and I really enjoy listening to you speak, so thanks for taking my call.

Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. Hey, Shep, I just learned some devastating news, man. The People's Court and Judge Mathis, they're no longer going to be on television. You scared me for a second. What you thought happened? I thought someone passed away because it's the rule of three, you know what I mean, with Raquel Welch and then obviously Tim McCarver.

I thought we were headed for something really bad there, so I'm sorry about the loss of employment, but at least everyone is still with us. Yeah, I like the People's Court. Yeah, Judge Mathis is a legend, man.

Well, he didn't do the People's Court, didn't he? He had his own show. Correct. There was a woman from the University of Miami Law School that did that show for a while. There was a lady and then her husband did it as well.

Interesting. So we know Judge Judy. She was the revolutionary, iconic figure that kind of launched it all. Well, she doesn't come on TV. Is Judge Judy still on TV? So she is not on network TV, but she does something, I believe, with Apple, Amazon, Peacock, one of those special subscriptions. How much money can she take? She made more money. She was making the same amount of money as Oprah. Listen, tell that to Rupert Murdoch, who's still being shown and highlighted on Fox in his 90s, okay? The Australian, well, let me relax.

I'll slow down. The business magnate, who's still going strong. Right. I was going to say some other things, but yeah, the guy from Australia who gave Tom Brady all the money. Anyway, 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. Somebody else looking for money right now is Derek Carr. And I hate to share this news with you if you happen to be a fan of the New York Jets. And if you are a fan of the New York Jets, you're certainly, you're used to punishing yourself. You are used to the New York Jets punishing you.

Derek Carr will be meeting with the New York Jets tomorrow. New York Jets took Zach Wilson a couple of seasons ago. He has not worked out. He's either been hurt or trash.

There is no in between. I will repeat, Zach Wilson has either been hurt or he has been trash. So much so that the New York Jets have sworn that they plan on keeping him, but then also pursuing a veteran to push him.

And the really only veteran options? Aaron Rodgers, Derek Carr, who's now a free agent. And Aaron Rodgers today should be the beginning of his darkness cleanse. And then you got Jimmy Garoppolo. And so if you're the New York Jets, here are the harsh realities. Derek Carr is probably the safest option. Aaron Rodgers is the most extreme option.

If you just want to quote unquote go for it. And I mean, well, damn. If you have to bring in Jimmy Garoppolo, just turn over an hourglass and let's see how long it takes before he sprains an ankle or a ligament or just whatever. I'm thinking the New York Jets, they're kind of screwed with whoever they bring in. They're taking a massive risk with whoever they bring in. Welcome to life with the New York Jets. And if they decide to sign Derek Carr, they're going to have to clear out cap space. They're going to have to cut some guys.

And they had an amazing defense. They still have to pay Quinnen Williams, who became an all pro or pro bowler. Life with the Jets, they can't get a quarterback right to save their lives. Joe Namath had busted up knees when he won the Super Bowl for the Jets. Joe Namath probably can't move a football five yards right now at this point in life.

He might be a better option for this team. And so if Derek Carr becomes the New York Jets quarterback, if they're able to come to an understanding or a deal, I'm just going to shrug my shoulders. And I'm going to think about the time, yes, that Derek Carr sat around in a press conference at the end of a loss, which he was used to doing quite frequently with the Raiders.

He lost to the Colts and he was just boo hooing. Listen. I'm just pissed off about some of the things, you know, that a lot of us try and do just to practice what we put our bodies through just to sleep at night. And for that to be the result of all that effort pisses me off. Like I said, just to practice what they're putting in their body just to sleep at night, like just so we could be there for each other. And I wish everybody in that room felt the same way about this place.

And as a leader, that pisses me off. If Derek Carr played for the New York Jets and did that, he would have a Saturday Night Live skit built around it. He'd go viral. He'd be made fun of.

He would receive more insults than he already gets from ex teammates, anonymous sources, of course anonymous, and plenty of other players who've already called him soft. And so Derek Carr will be visiting the New York Jets. The New York Jets might have to settle for Derek Carr.

He's going to be better than Zach Wilson, I'll tell you that damn much. 8-5-5, 2-1-2 for CBS, 8-5-5, 2-1-2 for CBS. Dan is calling from Wisconsin. Dan, what's on your mind?

Please go ahead. Hey, JR, I just want to ask you one quick question. Why wouldn't the Jets want to go after Lamar Jackson? I mean, he would be set right for the rest of their life. He would be their big quarterback.

He proved that he can play. Jets got a defense. You're getting the average quarterback with Carr one year out of Rogers. I think the Jets should go after Lamar Jackson. Okay. Thank you, Dan, for calling from Wisconsin.

Here's the problem, Dan. Derek Carr is probably only going to cost you about 30 to 35 million dollars. That's around how much money he would make with the Las Vegas Raiders. If the New York Jets were to bring in Lamar Jackson, they would have to give up draft assets. They would have to pay Lamar Jackson approximately, I'd say, around 50 million dollars starting a year. And he would want a long-term deal. And when I say long-term, for Lamar Jackson, that'll probably be in the four-year range. Maybe four to five. Five might be pushing it. And if you're the Jets, why would you want to do that?

Why do you want to trade away assets? You'd have to cut more guys to make more space for him on your roster, speaking from financial terms. And Lamar Jackson has ended the past few seasons hurt. This past season, it was his knee. The year before that, it was his ankle. The season before that, he was in the postseason. He got knocked the hell out.

He exited the game, I should say, against the Buffalo Bills with a concussion. So I'm sure the New York Jets would love to have Lamar Jackson. There are probably plenty of teams that would love to have Lamar Jackson. Is it feasible for them to compete for a championship and then also still have decent players on the team to be able to pay him? The answer is no. Wilder things have happened. Let's see if the Jets do it.

I don't believe so. 855-212-4CBS. Jamil, you're on CBS Sports Radio. What's going on, J.R.? How are you doing, brother? Good. Go ahead. This is your show all the time.

Appreciate it. Hey, so just to comment on the quarterback scheme, two questions because I actually called to mention or to voice my opinion on the NBA babying these players. For one, my question to you is what do you think the Tampa Bay Bucks quarterback situation is going to be?

The GOAT, as you say, is retired right now. They did not look that good at all this year. Secondly, to go back to what you were saying about the NBA players being that I'm from Sacramento, go ahead and pick Sabonis and Fox last. They're babying these guys. Let these guys go, man.

These are grown millionaire men. Let them go. Thank you, J.R. Thank you, Jamil.

Appreciate you, man. What do the Buccaneers do? I don't think they're going to just completely blow up the team. I think their best option might be going ahead and getting a free agent quarterback. I don't know if they would look at someone. I think Jimmy Garoppolo would be perfect for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I don't think they're going to go for some young hot shot or throw out Kyle Trask.

I don't think that would be the case. Eight five five two one two four CVS. Brian is here from North Carolina. What's up, Brian? What's going on, man? Two things.

Two things. First, you can't be watching. You can't be watching Judge Judy pockets like that. She got a ticket to the cookout anytime she wants. You can't be watching her pockets.

How was it? I was watching her pockets when she has made more money in television distribution than any human being alive. And I work in the business. She heard that, man. You can see. I didn't I didn't know that that wasn't the issue.

You telling me about watching her pockets. I work in radio and television. I think I have a good idea of how much people make, especially when it's widely distributed. But go ahead. All right. I'm going to go back to the NBA comment.

They it might be the reason it might have come from. I don't want to hurt these players feelings that get picked last. But I think this is the first time in a number of years that the change to the All-Star game is really is a is a good idea. It makes room for additional thinking about who you're going to pick as a reserve. Usually people don't even care about who's on the reserve, like they just care about the starting five on the scene and who got didn't make it to the All-Star game.

But these past few years, the change they've been making, like now they're playing each quarter is a game. I think that sucks. I take it back old school where, you know, you actually playing a game, but keeping the rule where you pick the bench first. I think it's a good idea. It might have come from babying, but I think it will add some extra interest to the All-Star game. Yeah, I don't I don't think so.

Once those guys get out there to hoop and I don't think anyone will care. Jacob is calling from Toronto. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hi, JR.

Thanks for taking my call. Just wanted to speak about the Zach Wilson situation and the Jets. I've been a Jets fan my whole life. You know, the one thing we've been lacking this these past 12 years has been decent quarterback play. We've always had key players, you know, star wide receivers like Plexico Burris. Now, Garrett Wilson. And we've always had a top 10 defense. The one thing we're really lacking is decent quarterback play. And I think if we get either of Ammar Jackson or Aaron Rodgers, I think we're right there in the mix with the rest of the AFC. And I'm going to hang up and see what you have to say.

Well, thank you, Jacob, for calling from Toronto. Aaron Rodgers is just going for it all. Going for it all. If you decide to get Aaron Rodgers, you're just going for it all. And you're doing it under the premise that he might retire next year or the year after that. You're going to have to wait for him to announce his decision on another wilderness cleanse.

A darkness cleanse. You don't know what you're going to get with Aaron Rodgers. You have no idea. And Lamar Jackson, I already shared with you all of the just all of the money and picks. You'd have to give up just to bring him in and not necessarily know or understand his health. Not easy. And so this is why the New York Jets are the New York Jets.

Unfortunately, it seems that they are always in a no win situation. It'd be nice if Lamar Jackson fell off of a truck and you could just pocket him while no one was looking. And didn't have to pay for him or give anything up. But it doesn't work like that.

Unless you're a crook, a criminal or thief. It's not how the NFL goes. The Jets are just unfortunately going to be the Jets and whoever they have at quarterback is going to come with some questions. They're going to arrive with some pressure.

And it should be a little bit of a circus. It doesn't matter who's out there playing a role for QB. It's the J.R. sport re show on CBS Sports Radio. You know how to reach me. 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. When we come back from break, we're going to talk about someone who didn't have to worry about losing. Well, he's doing a whole lot of losing now. He's the greatest basketball player of all time. His name is Michael Jordan. He turned 60 today. It's the J.R. sport re show, CBS Sports Radio.
