You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. It is the JR Sport Brief Show on CBS Sports Radio. I'm coming to you live from Atlanta, Georgia. Shout outs to everybody tuned in and locked in all over North America.

Our super producer and host, Dave Sheppard, is holding it down for us in New York City. On Thursday night, we had a Thursday night football game. To the shock of nobody, the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Broncos 19-10. Kansas City improves to 5-1 on the season. Denver falls to 1-5.

And how about this? Kansas City has beat the Broncos 16 consecutive times. Speaking of consecutive times, for the second consecutive season, the Philadelphia Phillies eliminate the Atlanta Braves from the postseason. From the NLDS, they beat them up.

They get rid of them 3-1. They win the series 3-1 and they win with a final score of 3-1 tonight as well. And so the Phillies, it doesn't matter if Atlanta had 104 wins, they could have had 106 and a record, they could have done everything. They didn't come with enough offense tonight to beat the Phillies. And so the Phillies will move on to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Championship Series. Ronald Acuna 0-4 on the night. Not a good look for the guy who's likely going to be named the MVP.

40-70 is real nice. I think a World Series is even better. Nick Castellanos pretty much leading the way tonight for the Philadelphia Phillies. Two home runs on the night. Castellanos hit a home run in the fourth. He hit another one in the sixth.

And that was all she wrote. Let's listen to that final home run. His second of the night that gave them the final score, 3-1.

This is courtesy of the Phillies Radio Network. And the 1-2 to Castellanos. Swung out, hit in the air. Blasted deep to left field.

No doubt about this one. Into the foot of the second deck, a solo home run. Nick Castellanos has hit his second solo home run of the night and the Phillies are on top 3-1. What a shot that was.

Yeah, and that 3-1 would ultimately be the final score. Matt Olson, who hit 54 home runs on the season, leading all of baseball. He talked about it tonight after the game. He's just like, man, when it balled down, we couldn't score. We stunk. Aside from a couple of Riley Homer's and a Travie Homer, we couldn't get anything going.

Sucks. It was like we were one big hit away all series. Catch Ronnie's ball there in the outfield. Potentially something that could tie it up, do us a lead, and kind of get the ball rolling for us. But they played a good series. Speaking of sucks, hey, the Broncos suck. Hey, Russell Wilson was crap tonight. Only 95 yards passing, a touchdown, two interceptions. He was sacked. I want to say, well, how many times did this man get sacked? He got sacked four times. Patrick Mahomes, 306 yards and touchdown and interception. Patrick Mahomes is just like, listen, I'm winning these games.

I'm just trying new stuff out. It was just bad. And Russell Wilson, hey, Shep, did he give us like boilerplate crap at the end on his press conference? So this is about as transparent and vulnerable and real as you will ever hear Russell Wilson at the end of any postgame. Yeah, now he was Mr. Politician, but he gave you a little bit of a glimpse into how he's really feeling if you pay close enough attention.

OK, so I got two simple questions, simple answers. You ready? I'm ready. Did he cry? Oh, no. OK, he didn't cry.

All right, I forget it. Let's hear it. Let's listen to Russell Wilson be miserable. Yeah, I mean, the reality of the game is they made two big plays on turnovers. Luckily, they didn't score on those plays. But I think the thing about our defense, they stopped them. They got an interception right back in return. We knew it was going to be a four-quarter battle, long game.

Obviously, it's division opponent and anything else. But I think for us, we had some opportunities that we could have capitalized on. I guess we got stopped on a couple of thirds and shorts or this and that.

And they did a good job. We had a chance. And I think we just got to play better, play cleaner. We've been playing really good ball and offense for the past several weeks. And I think the best thing we can do is just keep believing, play cleaner. I got to play better. And that starts with me.

And I know I'll respond the right way. Oh, man, the best thing that they could do is just get this season over with. That's it. Fire the head coach. Yeah, it's not happening.

Yeah, I know. But they got Randy Gregory to help on out of here. They pushing Frank Clark on out the door. Like, the season can't end fast enough. At least Sean Payton, the check's clear, right?

He make the money. Sean Payton spoke after the game, too. And I don't know what the hell he was talking about.

Listen to this. I was encouraged. I thought they played hard.

We'll see this team in two weeks. And I mean, that's kind of what I told them afterwards. I said, you know, you can be disappointed, but don't get discouraged.

What? Why would you want to see them? Why would you even want to say that?

Why you don't want to see them again? 16 consecutive losses? 16? Damn. Patrick Mahomes in his career is 12-0 against the Denver Broncos. Otto Graham has the next longest streak, winning streak, against an opponent.

He was 12-0 against the Cards. Like, damn. 16? 16?

I don't know about nothing to do with Russell Wilson and Sean Payton, but come on, man. 16? We'll see this team in two weeks. You don't want to. We'll see this team in two weeks. We'll see this team in two weeks at that point, they're going to score more than 19.

No. Maybe he'll resign between now and then. Rob Gronkowski said it perfectly on Sunday. He's like, hey, Sean Payton keeps losing. He going to be back on Fox with us.

Who knew that Rob Gronkowski, the guy who eats Tide Pods would be the voice of reason? 8-5-5, 2-1-2 for CBS. Steven is here from Baltimore. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. Hi, JR. Good evening. Good night. I want to say I totally 100% agree with you about the layoffs for the number one seeds in baseball.

And maybe I think you mentioned it that they should go back to, you know, just one one off one game and it would give only like maybe two or three days off for the winners of the of their division. But also, since one of your callers took my thunder and pretty much said everything that I wanted to say, I just wanted to also chime in about the wrestlers. You guys forgot some of the founders, like Tony Atlas and Andre the Giant.

What's that? Tony Atlas is one of the, what was the criteria? What did we talk about? You said Mount Rushmore of wrestlers.

No, we didn't. We talked about, we talked about like the best actual wrestlers and then we talked about the most influential wrestlers. And so Tony Atlas, like in a top four, I'm like, yeah, hell no.

Sorry. Well, I think he, you know, for a lot of African American wrestlers, he helped, you know, put them on the map or whatever, since he was one of the first ones to be on TV and to be known or whatever. But even in that regard, I mean, how many African American professional wrestlers would you say have like just climbed the pantheon? I mean, how many?

Just Rock, to be honest with you. Just him? I'd extend it past then, but it's... Booker T? Yeah, Booker T. I like Booker T. Hey, how about this? We get Booker T on the show and talk to him about it. No, I know Booker T. We get Booker T on the show. But anyway, I mean, this is my opinion. I think Andre the Giant also was...

Okay. I just remember from the kid being an incredible wrestler for the size he was or whatever. But also, I mean, I don't want to take any weight from the Texas Rangers.

I mean, they outplayed, they were out coached. And I mean, Bruce Bocce, I mean, there's no way the Orioles manager could be in his league or whatever. I mean, he made so many mistakes through that series that, you know, and my baby birds or whatever, hopefully I'll be back.

And I truly believe Gunnar Henderson will be a perennial All-Star for the next 10 years. Thank you and you have a good night. You as well, Steven. Thank you for calling from Baltimore.

I didn't think that we'd be talking about Booker T, Andre the Giant, Gunnar Henderson, and who else? I don't know. All in one conversation.

How about that? Only here on the JR Sport Brief Show. Tony Atlas. Tony Atlas, there you go. Speaking of T, Mr. T. Booker T, Mr. T. We forgot Mr. T. In all seriousness. Mr. T, he's from Chicago. Yeah, he is. I mean, in terms of commercial and mainstream, he made that transition.

Yeah, absolutely. But I don't know if any wrestler... With the exception of The Rock and Hulk Hogan, have made the transition to mainstream society and commercialism in terms of success the way that Mr. T has. Mr. T, he didn't start off wrestling, did he? I don't know if he started off wrestling, but he certainly made a name in the wrestling world. Oh, WrestleMania, was it one?

I mean, he was like Hulk Hogan's tag team partner. It didn't get bigger than that. Madison Square Garden. Yeah, good call. And remember, this was right around the mid-80s. This was right around the mid-80s. This was even before... 84.

Yep, 84. Good call. Yeah. Mr. T had the chains.

I pitied a fool. Looks the same, by the way. He does. He really does. Just For Men does... Well, Just For Men is good.

Yeah, tell that to Walt Clyde Frazier. He's still selling it. Him and Keith? Keith Arnett. They've been selling Just For Men for 30 years.

Yeah, listen, Just For Men is not Just For Men. 855-212-4CBS. Who is this? Jay's calling from Toronto. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Jay? Yeah, good morning, JR. I appreciate you taking my call.

And you and Shep doing a wonderful job on there again today. I just wanted to... There have been a number of calls about the MLB playoffs. And I agree with...I don't know how hard it is to realize that a week off for baseball players is ridiculous.

And I mean, what I would... I don't know, MLB, the smart people there at MLB. I don't know how hard it would be to have eight teams per league in the playoffs and then no layoffs.

Well, that is the bigger issue. It is the expansion of the playoffs to A, get more teams involved, to try to keep more teams kind of interested and invested through the course of the regular season. And so that's why we have what we have now. I don't think it's so much... I know one caller had brought up the fact of the one game elimination wildcards.

And that's something that Curtis Grandison talked about last night. I'm not in favor of that either. I don't like that. I don't like the stupid week layoffs. I would be perfectly fine with eliminating one million teams from advancing to the postseason. But I understand Major League Baseball's reasoning in doing so. And if they were or are to do so, I can't even say eliminate the buy because you can't. You'd have to eliminate teams and I'd be fine with that. But for business, I get it. You want to have as many teams in the postseason as possible.

So they just got to close that gap in the postseason and that's it. Yeah, I agree. And listen, shout out to your Agents of Inclusion podcast, JR. It's fabulous work and kudos to you, my man. Well, thank you for listening.

The Special Olympic athletes, they are the amazing ones. Appreciate you, Jay. Have a good night. Appreciate you as well.

No doubt about it. 855-212-4CBS. 855-212-4CBS. Mark is calling from Montreal on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Mark? What's up, JR?

What it is? Good. Do I sound happy tonight or do I sound miserable? Hey, Shep, he sounds miserable, doesn't he? Even from Mark from Montreal. Mark is knowledgeable, but he doesn't always bring...

He's not exactly Richard Simmons on the airwaves sometimes. Do you need... Did you get hit with a tranquilizer? Like, what's wrong? I'm being quiet.

I don't want to wake up the family. It's one point people. How many people in your house? Seven. Seven? Yeah.

Did you make five of the people in the house? No, no, no. I'm 16, man. Oh, wait. Hold on a minute. Oh my God. Okay.

What are these? These are your parents and your siblings? Yeah. All right. Go ahead, man. Go ahead. What's on your mind?

I don't want you to wake nobody up. What was that stat you said about the Phillies outscoring the Braves? Was it 37? Over the past two years? I forgot. I think it was like 27 to three or something. Whatever it was. I don't know. It sounds crazy because of the Braves offensive team.

Let me tell you, it makes sense to me. Ask you a question, JR. JR, you had it right. 30 to seven over the last two years. What's the score? 30 to seven in the NLDS?

Last two post-seasons Braves and at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies. Combined, right? Correct. Yeah, that's crazy.

Yeah, go ahead, man. What the hell happened? Hey, Shup, what happened to our guy? He just disappeared off the face of the earth. The young guy from Canada. What happened to him?

I have no idea. But hey, listen, if he's still listening and he's not being captured by his family who's sleeping, call back. That was crazy. He's like, I live with seven people. And I said, well, did you make five of them? He's like, no, man, I'm 16.

Or, well, listen, maybe he didn't. He doesn't want to take credit for a busy life before 16 years old, if you get what I'm saying. No. No? Okay. What's 16? You know a 16-year-old who has five kids?

Absolutely. Where? It happens all... I'm not saying it happens all the time, but I mean...

In America? JR, I mean, listen, to have five kids as a woman by the age of 16 is one thing. But to impregnate five different women at 16, that's not unheard of. You, it's not unheard of, of course. Right. I'm not encouraging it.

You have met a 16-year-old who is a father of five? Without question. Where?

Yes. Where? In inner cities. What city? I love this city so much.

JR, you probably can connect the dots. I love this city so much that I'm not going to say it just because they get a really bad reputation. I know what city you're talking about. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

But it happens more often than you think. Is it in the state north of me of Georgia? Yes.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. It's not that state. It's New York City?

No, it's not New York City. But trust you and me, where having kids is seen as a norm before the age of 18, before you even think about higher education... To be 16 and have five babies? A man?

Thousand, thousand percent, thousand percent. You got to also... Man, JR, you know this. In certain cultures, when you become a father, that is almost a rite of passage before you graduate from high school. What culture is that?

It's part of cultures that unfortunately, from a socioeconomic standpoint, they don't believe that much in education, but they do believe in having large families and they do believe in your legacy being, in large part, no pun intended, how large you can ultimately make a family. Man, I've never met a 16-year-old who has... I've never met a 16-year-old male. At one point in time, I used to be 16.

Well, you also run in different circles now. I mean, if we're being fair, you're not hanging around individuals that are not highly well spoken, highly educated, highly informed. So that's not the type of people that you're going to roll with, but they exist in this country. But listen, I grew up in the Bronx.

I mean, I don't remember nobody. I know plenty of people who have kids. But in New York City, having a kid here, and I'm not going to pick on any small town in America, is like having five kids in a really small town in a rural area in America.

Having a kid in the city is next to impossible because of the expenses. A 16-year-old male in America with five kids. I know it exists. I know there are plenty of them.

I just ain't never met one. He said he was calling from Canada, right? Weren't he from Canada? Yeah, Montreal. Yep. They have sex in Canada? They do?

Well, they're in good moods for a reason, right? Oh, yeah, right. You got to do something in the winter.

Right, exactly. It's not because it snows eight months of the year. Yeah, you got to do something in the winter. Make babies. Okay. The more you know, it's educational.

Hey, shout-outs to everybody in Canada. Listening to me, not making babies. I don't help. It's the J.R. Sportbree show here on CBS Sports Radio, 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. Patrick Mahomes talked about the Chiefs offense. I know the Broncos suck, but Patrick Mahomes had some thought about what the Chiefs did. Then Brian Snitker, he has some thoughts about why the Braves, they stunk. You'll hear it on the other side. CBS Sports Radio. On CBS Sports Radio. They update your show and the way you are, and there's a reason you are where you are. Thank you, bud.

Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. You know, amongst everything going on right now, it's preseason basketball. Oh my God, how exciting. Now we talk about days off and like there's too many preseason games. I get it. It's a dress rehearsal, not just for the players, but for the TV distributors and the announcers.

But we got like two more weeks until we get real basketball. Like for instance, tonight in Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Nets beat, uh, uh, how do I don't even know how to say this? Maccabee, Ra-an-an-an. Maccabee. Well, what's the, what's the other part?

Other part, I don't know. There's like, there's like four Maccabees, Maccabees. There's like four of them.

Which one is this? Ra-an-an-an. Yeah. With WNBA Finals, MLB playoffs, Thursday Night Football, and you and I are NBA guys. I have no idea what's playing tonight in the NBA.

The fact that you even know that is amazing. I only know this because people are losing their minds over, uh, Ben Simmons. So the Nets beat the team from Israel.

The, the names that, uh, last one I cannot pronounce, 135 to 103. And Ben Simmons, six points, six rebounds, nine assists to steal in 21 minutes. He hit a, he hit an over the shoulder jump shot, like a turn around fade away jump shot. Like Ben Simmons stepped out of a video game and, uh, I don't know if he's healthy, if he got confidence, let's, let's wait until he shoots a free throw.

That'll, that'll be the determining factor there. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS, Russell, Russell, what's this guy's name? Ben Simmons might've found some, uh, some offense and some confidence, unlike the Braves who just fell flat.

3 to 1 eliminated tonight. And their, their manager, Brian Snitker, he spoke after the game and he's just like, yeah, man, we, we got a lot of time off. That's a good question. I mean, um, you know, I thought we did everything possible during the delay, um, recreated things as the best we could, you know, and, um, we can do everything right and all that. And you start a series and you know what your offense doesn't get traction. You know, I mean, it can happen anytime.

It happens in series over the course of the summer. Um, but I don't know that we could have done anything any better or, um, been more thorough in what we did with our time off, um, to get us ready to play, you know, uh, other than the fact that, you know what, when you're doing that, the adrenaline and playing for something, all that's not there. And that's, you know what, that's a big deal. Yeah.

Well, it's true, right? A lot of guys won't admit it, managers won't admit it, but it's like, yeah, time off hurt us. Well, I mean, so did not having pitching and so did not timely hitting.

And so they suffered as a result. Now on the NFL side, as Shep mentioned, it was football tonight. The chiefs beat Denver 19 to eight, a little bit of a, uh, a little bit of good, a little bit of bad for the Kansas city chiefs and their offense.

They haven't been lighting up teams the way they typically would in passing. You can probably thank Tyreek Hill for not being there. Uh, Mahomes 306 yards passing, uh, one touchdown, a six yarder took Darius Toney. And then he also threw an interception.

This is what Mahomes had to say about their offense. I thought we did a lot of good things. Um, just obviously red zone, some third downs. We just didn't execute at a high enough level.

Um, I still think there was a lot of good things we can take from it. Um, we just got to continue to get better and better. We get better and better, um, luckily for us, our defense is playing, playing great. Yeah, they got the chargers next. And so that is likely to be a shootout for the Kansas city chiefs. And then if you're interested in watching the Denver Broncos in another football game, I don't know why you would next up for them.

They got the green Bay Packers. So winnable game, right? What a bull game. I don't know, maybe, uh, love throws two interceptions instead of three.

I don't know. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. Bob is calling from Michigan.

Thank you very much for taking my call. Hey, I, you know, I, I really feel a sense of frustration here, but I have a feeling what I'm going to say is going to support, uh, my art, my friendly argument about what everyone's talking about tonight with you about the major league baseball playoffs. I mean, I don't think that there's any reason why there should be seven to eight teams in each, each league, American and national league, there should be vying for a playoff spot after playing 162 games.

Um, let me give you an example. Baseball schedule, 95% of the summer, everyone's playing every day during the summer. During a six month period of time in hockey, there's only 82 regular season games, and you're only playing 11, maybe 12 games a month. So if you can't, if major league baseball can't get what they should do to eliminate this problem about sitting for a week, waiting for other series to get done is go back to the way it was. Go back to, uh, to two divisions in each conference, and then everyone battle for the division title.

And then you have the, the two division winners battling for the, for the pennant in each division, uh, and each, and each conference. But here's that's the way it should be. I'm, I'm fine with that personally.

I'm okay with that. Personally, I'm okay with that, but if you have to go market to market, city to city, town to town, it is beneficial in the long run for baseball. If they want to think about it from a, a ratings perspective in local markets, if they want to think about attendance, if they want to cram more teams into the post season and then have an additional gate and make more money with their TV distributors, it is advantageous for them to say we have 12 teams in the post season. And so as much as, as much as I don't particularly like it or care for it, as much as you don't for them as a business, it makes sense.

I, I get your, I get your stance on that. I guess the only thing I can say is this, when we put everything together, all the pros and the cons about everything that you just spoke with, with some of the feelings that that are involved in this, the bottom line is more emphasis needs to be put on the regular season games. If you can't figure out after 162 games, who should go, then you have a problem.

But Bob, I agree with you, but they have de, they have de-emphasized the games to still put an emphasis on. There's a wider range of teams who quote unquote still feel that they are in it throughout the course of the regular season. There are less teams, there are less teams deciding to quote unquote, sell off players. There are less teams that are deciding to punt on the season because they still feel that they have a chance to compete for a wild card.

And if I can get into a wild card, I have a chance to win the world series. And so, yeah, I get it. I get it. I, I get it. I'm not disagreeing with you.

It's just kind of strange though, because it seems like we have to, you have to make more time for people to get to the starting line to shoot that gun to make a run for the pennant when you have to wait for a week before you can blow the gun again. It's just kind of stupid. No, it's not. It's about money, Bob.

That's it, man. It's not stupid. I don't have to like it.

I don't, but it makes sense because it makes them money. I mean, even if I got to think about this past trade deadline, I mean, we don't have the same amount of teams that are just selling off and just getting rid of dudes. They're like, Oh my God, I can compete. I can win. And so I'm holding onto my guys because I think I can make a run.

Okay, fine. Does that really matter unless you really legitimately feel that you, you can win a world series? Look, the more teams that feel they got a chance, the better. It's good for everybody involved.

It really is. I mean, let's look at the Diamondbacks. In a typical post season, they wouldn't even be here. They're the sixth seed. The Arizona Diamondbacks made it in on the skin of their teeth. They're the sixth seed.

So if you want to talk about the benefits, they're one step away from going to a world series where in most years, traditional years, they'd have been sitting at home wondering what their young guys would be able to do. 855-212-4CBS, Gary's calling from British Columbia. What's up, Gary? Hey, JR. By the way, I want to say a couple of things here.

First of all, your producer is probably the most professional producer I've had the pleasure to talk to. You, your show, you give the public access to at least field events. To at least be able to vent if they want to.

In my case, I'm not venting, but I am going to say this. You mentioned, you mentioned to myself and your other listeners about Russell Wilson and that he was not necessarily having a great day in these, not exactly the greatest quarterback and me, I'm going to say this. I saw what he was throwing the ball to. They can't catch a beach ball. He has no more than two seconds back there to throw the ball and he's only six foot tall. He's not 6'6", he's six foot and 225. So he's not the biggest guy in the world and he's running for his life a lot of the time and I actually, I don't feel sorry for him, but it's not just him.

It's the whole, he's got, he has no offensive linemen and he's got some kids trying to catch the ball that don't know how to catch a football. What do you think? Yeah, Gary, when the game ended at the end, I said everything that you just said. Okay.

Yeah, I did. I said everybody has a reason to blame. I said Russell Wilson hasn't been that bad. He is bad. This is what he asked for. This is what he gets. But I said there's, there's blame to go around for everybody, but I don't think he's as bad as people are kind of laying him out to be.

But he gets what he deserves because he wanted to leave and good for him. So I hope he loses. I'm going to say this. You are, in my opinion, I listen to you pretty much every night if I can. I just had an operation that came out of the hospital and I really enjoy your show. Thank you. Well, thank you, Gary. You get well soon. Okay. Thank you. All right, shout out to Gary from British Columbia.

It's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, if you getting better or something is ailing you, get well soon. Get well soon for real.

Get well. I, I hurt all the time. Hey, Marco, my back is killing me right now, Marco. Are you serious? You're talking to a guy that's about six times your size and is older than you and you're going to talk about your back?

My fat ass, everything hurts. Are you kidding me? My back be killing me, Marco. Killing me.

Killing me. I mean, have we not sat down and broke right? We have not talked. You have not looked at me once ago.

Jesus, that poor fat bastard, you know he's got to be in pain. I mean, really, that didn't cross your mind. Come on. Come on now. Oh, you walk, you walk from, you walk from one side of the room to the other.

Why would I think you hurt? So JR, next time you come to New York, I got two guest passes. I belong to the New York Sports Club. You and Marco can be my guests anytime you both want. And we can solve this once and for all. Does that sound good to you guys?

I'll be in New York like tomorrow, my back. Really? Yeah.

You're going to be hosting from the studio? Oh, not with, no, no, my bad. Oh, you don't like me that much, kind of.

My apologies. Well, the next time you're in New York and you're hosting from the studio, you, Marco, and myself, I got two passes to New York Sports Club. We will work out together.

How does that sound? I go to the gym, man. My back just hurts. Well, you got, in all seriousness, Marco, you know this too. The abdomen and the lower back are the two biggest issues that men have as they age.

Well, I got abs, but my back still hurts. Seriously, JR, that's a problem, though. Yeah, I know. Because I know how, you're still a young man. You got to get on that. You know how many things I got to carry around in life? All my problems and issues, you know how much I got to carry around? Yeah, get in line. All this dead weight.

It sounds like Aaron Judge on the Yankees. Yeah, well, it's two Bronx guys with some problems. You got to carry a lot. You got to carry a lot around you.

Yeah, I got to carry a lot. My back hurts. I feel like, who do I feel like? I feel like Aaron Judge from the Yankees, yes. I feel like Patrick Mahomes from the Chiefs.

Who are some other people I got to carry around some bums? Well, LeBron on every Cavaliers team except when you had Kyrie and Kevin Love. I'm LeBron, and what year was that with the Spurs?

That was 2007. Yeah. Larry Hughes.

All right. Booby. Eric Smo. Booby Gibson, right. Drew Gooden. Booby, Booby Gibson.

So, Goscas. Who are those bums? Ira Neuvel.

Oh my, Ira Neuvel. Jeff Forgittis. What was that? Who the hell was on that, not Mavericks, was Dwight Howard? I can't say he was carrying. How the hell did they go to the postseason? How'd they go to the finals again? Well, that was, well, I mean, Hito Türkulu, Rashard Lewis, Jameer Nelson. That was a pretty good supporting cast around him.

That was one of the weirdest teams I've ever seen in the finals in my life. Hey, hey. So, Dwight Howard is your best player surrounded by a bunch of 6-foot-8, 3-point shooters.

As a New Yorker, don't sleep on Skip to my Lou. Ray Foster? Yeah, he was good, man. Okay, yeah, right. Yeah. What about Jason Williams?

Where are they? What about Jason Williams? He was on that Magic team.

White Chocolates? Yeah, he was on that Magic team. Was he? Yeah, the end of his career. Yeah.

Oh, yeah. I couldn't even, who was the star, Dwight? Dwight and then Rashard Lewis and Hito Türkulu, the second and third best player. What could Dwight Howard ever do besides dunk? And Michael Petris, don't forget about that guy. We don't care about him.

All right. What did Dwight Howard do besides dunk? Played in China? No, but did he ever develop a move?

Nothing, right? No, but he was a three-time defensive player of the year. He deserves some credit for that. On offense. On offense. He could just drop-step, right?

He could jump out of the building. That's crazy, man. Yeah. Congratulations, Dwight. You know what? He's going to go into the Hall of Fame. His first ballot.

That's wild. Yeah, his first ballot. He's going to go into the Hall of Fame.

Well, I don't know. If you guys hadn't heard about him and the Warriors, I know he worked out with them. Eh, they ain't signing him.

You think they will, they ain't not signing him. They need depth at the center position. You know what I'd love to see?

This would be an embarrassment. If we took Akeem Olajuwon and put him on the court against Dwight Howard in their primes and just said, hey, go at it. And they played 21.

Akeem would cook them. Well, we saw that in 95. Yeah, but those guys actually have offense. Oh, no, no. I'm talking about the finals when he made Shaq look like he belonged to another year at LSU. Oh, well, he went through the list. Yes. He went through everybody. That's right. And so it's like he would, and those guys had offense.

This man don't have none. And he's one of the best sensors over the past, I don't know what, 20 years? Dwight Howard something. Well, now you got the influx of Joelle and, and Nicola. Now before those guys, Dwight Howard was the best center the last 10 years.

But those guys, he looks like a relic in comparison. Anyway, speaking of somebody who hurt, that would be Joel Embiid. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio.
