I appreciate you. Super producer and host Ryan Hickey. He is in New York City. We're going to be hanging out for one more hour.

And then we gone. The show gets started every single weekday at 6pm Eastern 3 Pacific. You can always listen on the free Odyssey app.

A U D A C Y. You can always listen live and local on your Infinity Sports Network affiliate. If you got Sirius XM it's channel 158.

If you have a smart speaker, ask that speaker to play the Infinity Sports Network and boom, we pop right on up. Not that tough. What a busy day. What a busy evening. What a rich evening. $142 million at signing.

The IRS probably said, thank you. Give me 70 of that. Either way, this is buckets and buckets and buckets of money. $55 million a year will take you a very long way in Jacksonville, Florida. And dammit, Trevor Lawrence is now making the same amount of money as Joe Burrow. $55 million a year. Price went up.

Shout out to Fat Joe. Price went up. You think about Dak Prescott. Dak Prescott is saying, man, the price went up.

If I'm to a Tonga Veloa, I'm saying to myself, the price went up. It's a wild world that we live in right now. Trevor Lawrence, he didn't even go to no Super Bowl, man. He's got five touchdowns and five interceptions.

His career probably would have still been crap if he had Urban Meyer there with him. You know what? Let's listen. Hickey, this is the NFL Network announcement from earlier with a little explanation. NFL Network, right? You know it. Let's take a listen. Which NFL Network guy is this?

I know they fired a lot of them. Ian Rappaport. Let's listen to Ian break down this new contract for Trevor Lawrence and his wonderful hair. A very, very rich man and a huge deal for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Trevor Lawrence. Let's get through the money particulars first because this is a massive deal.

As you mentioned, the new highest paid quarterback in the NFL alongside Joe Burrow. Five years, two hundred and seventy five million dollars. That is the deal that the Jaguars and their former number one over overall pick Trevor Lawrence agreed to fifty five million dollars per year. Two hundred million dollars guaranteed. A hundred and forty two million dollars fully. This deal done by agent Jay Corey of MGC Sports. It's thirty seven point five million dollars just to sign his name. And look, Trevor Lawrence has done everything he can to prove himself, not only being worth the number one overall selection, but being the franchise quarterback for the Jaguars. His payday was coming. The Jags just decided proactively, you know what?

Let's just do this now. So he gets the bag. He gets paid. He now is essentially set for life and it has a massive domino effect on so many other big time quarterbacks who are looking for similar paydays. Oh, yeah, there's all these quarterbacks to a wants money.

Can you give to it? This is crazy, though, like you let to it. Let's do a play this year out. You want you want fifty five million dollars to to a tongue of a lower. You want fifty five million. Earn it. I'm going to steal a phrase from Hulk Hogan, who I don't particularly care for too much. What are you going to do? What are you going to do, brother? What the hell is he going to do, man?

You can't do this. Prove it. The last time I saw to a tongue of a lower playing football, he was freezing cold. He was shivering. He needed an extra hat. Gloves.

I don't know, moccasins, scarves, a bubble, heaters. Go earn that money. You lost all that weight to a.

You lost all that weight, then go go be healthy. At this time, last year to a tongue of lower was letting everybody know that he had to think about whether or not he wanted to retire due to concussions. And here he is looking for a big deal. Go earn it this year. Now we'll talk. I'm not giving to a fifty five nothing this year. Hell, no.

Not the only guy, Dak. I know the Dallas Cowboys are crazy. Are they going to pay him now? Are they going to pay him later or just let him walk?

Dallas Cowboys are crazy. I don't know what they'll do. They'll probably make sure the price goes up at the end of the year so they pay him more.

That's what they did last time. Stupid cowboys. Hickey, you are you paying to a fifty five a year? Hell, no. No chance. Are you paying Dak fifty five right now? Would you do it? I would not.

That's it. The only guy I think this offseason that may get another deal and they've said that they will give him one is Jordan Love. And his deal is not going to be at fifty five. What do they slot him at fifty flat?

Hickey, you think? He is so tough because it has been just one one year. Yeah, one. I think if you're the Packers, you could get into the forty range. I think even forty five. You got to get in there. Kyler Murray's.

It jumps. Kyler Murray has forty six annually and then it goes to Jalen Hurts. Fifty one Lamar. Fifty two.

Herbert. Fifty two. He can't get into that range, but you got to pay him more than. The Sean Watson, Kyler Murray, right. Kirk, Kirk Cousins is getting forty five. If I'm him, you accept forty five, forty six. Who would have known what he would have turned out?

Who would have known if he would got a chance? You know, with Aaron Rodgers leaving and he's done one year. Forty six is safe. Forty five. If you're Jordan Love.

I'm curious your thoughts. Would you wait? And so what, the end of the year? Next year? Like if he has two good years in a row, it's a lot easier to get. You know, I mean, if Trevor's getting fifty five million dollars. Could he get 60 next year if he has another, you know, if he replicates and builds on what he did in twenty, twenty three. You Jordan Love is twenty five years old. I mean, you would think that he would want to cash in cash out on how many more contracts?

Three, four. You know, that's true. So who's to say that I can't secure this money now, continue to establish myself. The money is not going to do anything but go up. You know, I'm going to be playing.

He's going to be playing on a discount in another few years anyway. You know, it's it's like one guy jumps over this like a game, a hopscotch. But it's NFL. It's like, oh, you get fifty.

I get fifty five. Like there's no no reasonable way outside of the market to say that that Trevor Lawrence should make more money on an average basis. More than Lamar Jackson or Joe Burrow, who's been to a Super Bowl.

Like they're going to pay him for what they think he can do. And Trevor Lawrence had a great start to the season last year before he looked like he broke his leg in that game. It's a it's a tough one.

It's a tough one. Oh, by the way, it's been reported that Calais Campbell, who was here in Atlanta last year, is on his way to the Miami Dolphins. Good for him. He went to Miami.

Let's see what he does. And speaking of here in Atlanta. The Falcons were punished today. Punish for what? Tampering. I just told you about Kirk Cousins and in his contract here in Atlanta with the Falcons. Well, it's been reported via the NFL in their investigation that they jumped the gun.

They negotiated with him and had a little couple of things in place before the tampering period. And so the Falcons have been punished. The team is getting smacked. Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Terry Fontenot getting fined of fifty thousand dollars. And the Falcons also missing a fifth round pick.

Come on now. That is not a damn punishment. That is a slap on the wrist. The Falcons didn't get a damn thing. They got they got yelled at and cursed at by the NFL. Oh, my God. They lose a quarter.

Military Fontenot loses 50 K. Not a big deal. Not at all. Listen to this report from CBS Sports HQ. Breaking news out of the NFL. The league office has concluded their investigation into offseason tampering. And the league will be docking the Atlanta Falcons a fifth round pick in twenty twenty four as part of their punishment. That inquiry has to do with the signings of Kirk Cousins and reportedly includes the recruitment of Darnell Mooney and Charlie Warner as well. The Falcons will be fined two hundred and fifty thousand dollars for the violation with a separate fifty thousand dollar fine going to GM Jerry Terry Fontenot.

Our Jonathan Jones reporting that Atlanta does not plan to appeal the NFL's decision. The Eagles, meanwhile, they are not being penalized. What they didn't fight with Saquon. They didn't cheat to get Saquon. I remember the Saquon's old hickey. Was it the high school coach or the coach from Penn State? James Franklin.

Oh, my God. He said that Saquon was talking to the team before. I remember vividly Saquon trying to clean it up in March like, whoa, shut up.

That none of that happened. Listen to what Saquon said. Coach Franklin, I think, kind of misinterpreted. Is this the truth was the cell first in Penn State. I mean, Penn State fans are Philadelphia Eagles fans, but that was through my agent. My agent told me that. So, you know, it happens.

And I love the feeling. OK. Eagles, no punishment. The Falcons get punished. This is who cares?

Hickey, this was no punishment, right? The Falcons got off scot free. A fifth round pick.

Who cares? The fifth round pick is probably going to get cut anyway. You're right. If that's what it took to get Kirk Cousins, it's a win, right? You'll take that every time. Yeah. What do they say?

If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. Congratulations to the Falcons. They got away with they got away with a football crime.

Good for them. Eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven. It's eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven. It's amazing that we could have the NBA finals going on, even though the series is almost over. We could have the Stanley Cup finals going on right now.

Look like the Panthers are going to punch out the lights. Edmondson and the NFL is still in the news here. And so throughout the course of today's show that we've given you the updates on Trevor Lawrence. We just heard from Danny Hurley, who spoke today following his rejection of the Los Angeles Lakers. And then even I told you about this, like J.J. Redick, we got news on him. J.J. Redick is actually going to have a formal interview with the Los Angeles Lakers. Listen to Shams tell you about it.

Drop in all the news. This is the second time that J.J. Redick is meeting with the with Rob Palenka and the Lakers. He met with Rob Palenka and the Lakers the week of May 13th at the draft combine in Chicago.

They met for nearly two hours there, from what I was told. Obviously, J.J. Redick has had you know, has had a lot of interest from the Lakers throughout this process. I actually said on your program on May 24th that J.J. Redick is the favorite.

And that it is down to J.J. Redick and James Brago as the two finalists for the Lakers. And that has not changed. It didn't change. Nothing changed from that point. I reported on it as well in the athletic last Tuesday.

I believe that was June 4th. And really throughout the Lakers process, nothing has changed. They they need to see how J.J. Redick, of course, does in more meetings, meets with Jeannie Buss and ownership. Oh, come on now. What a waste of time that Dan Hurley said, no, just give J.J. Redick the job.

You know, I agree. And that was on Pat McAfee's show. Brian Windhorst was on television as well. And he said what we all know.

And this sucks for Darvin' Ham. LeBron James sitting around doing a podcast with J.J. Redick. That was J.J. Redick's interview with the Lakers is what he said. Obviously, the Lakers have done a lot of research. And frankly, his interviews have been in those podcasts with LeBron James. They've extensively broken down the Lakers offense, extensively broken down what they do.

It's been out there for the whole world to hear, including from the Lakers front. Yeah. What are we going to do?

I don't know what the hell. Just give him the job. They give him the gig already.

Not that serious. The Lakers look like a mess. And thank you so much to Avery Johnson for joining us, a former championship point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, former coach of the Dallas Mavericks and the Nets, Alabama. He said, man, he said coaching is a revolving door. You can ask you can ask Avery Johnson. He knows.

Hard knock life. Frank Vogel fired. Darvin' Ham fired. Players have all the power. And LeBron James, he should just make the call and just say, hey, just give J.J. Redick the job.

I can't wait until LeBron wants to get rid of J.J. Redick. That'll be the story. Hickey, I didn't find the throat slash emoji. I have to look more. I have to look harder.

OK, I'm curious to which emoji you thought it was like what's close to a throat slash. I'm going to find it. Just patience. All right. All right. Hey, I got all night. I'm going nowhere. Not all night.

We got about forty five minutes left. And once the show ends, then you're done with the search. No, I'm going to find it in this break. OK. All right. I'm looking forward to it.

Speaking of throat slash emoji. You ready? You ready to hear where this one's going?

I can't wait. Kaitlyn Clark just finished the basketball game. No, there was there was nothing else.

I thought we had like a part two there. OK. No, that's it. That's that's it. Did the Fever win? Yeah, they won. They beat Atlanta. OK. Oh, wait.

Maybe I have it screwed up here. Wait a minute. What team does she play for? The Indiana Fever?

Fever. That's the only team that people watch, right? Yes, sir. OK. No, Angel Reese said they watch Chicago, too. Some people do. Some people.

Not me. Let's see. Fever score. Oh, yeah, they won. OK, good.

Indiana Fever beat the Atlanta Dream 91 to 84. What we're going to do is we're going to take a break. We come back on the other side of the break.

I'm going to look up the throat slash emoji that I feel exists. I'm going to tell you about what Kaitlyn Clark did tonight. I'm going to talk about Chris Staps Porzingis. I don't know why to hell this man is questionable. He does not need to play the rest of the damn season or series. And of course, I'm going to share with you a few things that took place this day in sports history.

The JR Sport Brief Show, the Infinity Sports Network. OK, quick math. The less your business spends on operations, on multiple systems, on delivering your product or service, the more margin you have and the more money you keep.

That's 8 5 5 2 1 2 42 27. Stanley Cup Finals going on right now. Florida Panthers lead the Oilers 1 to nothing. They just got underway in the second period. Florida leads the series 2 to nothing. They're trying to go up 3-0 just like the Celtics did last night against the Dallas Mavericks. Luka Doncic did all that crying last night.

Drove me nuts. I'm like, shut up. Avery Johnson was here with us earlier in the show. Avery Johnson was like, man, it's the finals.

This is not for babies. At least it appears that Luka Doncic has learned his lesson. Because he spoke to ESPN earlier today. And Luka Doncic actually, he apologized? Well, not to me or you, but to his team. Listen to this. Yeah, of course. Like I said, it wasn't the smartest thing to do. Especially in this situation. It's the finals. You've got to give everything a little time out there.

But yeah, the car has been great for me just having anyone here. So what did you say to your teammates afterwards? It's my bad. I can't do that. Especially in the NBA Finals. The record season is a little bit different, but I can't really do that in the Finals. Yeah, can't act like a baby in the Finals. Got to get it together. Well, a little too late.

Just like Luka Doncic can't have better teammates in the Finals. Like, it's done. It's over. Kyrie Irving actually had a game at 35 last night.

Luka was hot early on, but it wasn't enough. Come on. The Finals are done. Just a matter when they finish it off. And Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown hoist the trophy and Luka and Kyrie walk off the court sad. Will it be tomorrow? Will it be Monday?

We'll find out soon enough. And by the way, we know Chris Staps Porzingis didn't play last night. They need to put Chris Staps Porzingis away for the rest of the season.

What do they need him for? I mean, the game last night was a game that Dallas should have gone out and won. They didn't do it.

They didn't get the job done. They missed it with no Chris Staps. They don't need Chris Staps on the Celtics side. Like, why run the risk of injury for a guy who can't walk across the street without straining a muscle in his legs? Chris Staps is done.

Hickey, put him away, right? No more Chris Staps? You said next year. You said March? March. Put him in bubble wrap till March and kind of break when you're ready to get in that postseason mode. What do you do? Just say, go home to Latvia and we'll see you in February and then you'll start playing in March.

Just go home. Do you consider the Ted Williams method? The Ted Williams method? Fill me in. Isn't his head frozen? Oh, my God. No, Ted Williams is dead. Yeah, right. But I'm pretty sure his head's frozen. Yeah. Yeah. Because one day if, you know, the robots can walk and people can be brought back to life, then we bring back a guy who can hit, I don't know, at this point he'll hit 500.

First owner businesses and the robots take over. We got to get a guy that can play baseball. Unfreeze Ted Williams.

Yeah, unfreeze. Is his brain in Boston or Texas? It's somewhere, right? I don't know where, but it's somewhere. Arizona, Arizona. Nice. Ironically enough, in the desert. Sure, that works. I think it's in Arizona or Nevada.

One of the places. Yeah. But maybe put him in the same, you know, ice chamber. Porzingis? Yeah, then, you know, defrost him in February and then have him ready to go on the court for March. Why are you trying to kill Kristaps Porzingis? No, I'm trying to preserve him, not kill him.

You got to freeze him. I mean, look, do you trust Kristaps Porzingis right now if he's in Latvia for six months to walk around without getting injured? I don't know. Risky. As long as he just walks?

Yeah, why not? I mean, the guy's walking injury. You're true. You're right. You're right.

You know, I'd be a little nervous. That's all. By the way, there is no throat slash emoji. Oh. You're right.

What I was thinking about, and this is, this is equally as ominous. Oh. It's the shush emoji. OK. It's the one hand, one hand, one finger over the mouth while looking up at the sky, like peeking out over the fingers.

Like, you better shut up, otherwise I'm going to slit your throat. No, that's not what it is. I'm looking at that right now. Hold on. I'm going to text it to you. You tell me if this is not threatening. Yeah, go. Hold on. Look at it. Hold on. Would you put it that way? Yes. When you send somebody the emoji that I just sent you.

Here we go. Look at that. Look, look, that's not threatening.

Hey, didn't I see you out with that girl last night when you send that back to your friend who texted you then? Yeah, I'd be afraid for my life. Yeah, one hand over the lip like shush with the, with the knife next to it.

Well, when you add the knife, yes, I could see why that is threatening. Come on. You're making your own emoji now.

Who, me? Yeah. Yeah, I need to suggest it to Apple.

They're using so many new emojis. Why not? Yeah, why not?

Just put it in the suggestion box. Yeah, the dangerous, dangerous world out here. Oh, Edmondson just scored. How about that? Good for them.

One all here. Edmondson is probably washed up. The way this series is going, Florida will be turning this to, like, a four to nothing by the time we get to the third. And they'll have a 3-0 series lead.

Hey, good luck. Good luck to Edmondson in trying to bounce back. At least they got a little bit more hope than the Dallas Mavericks. And speaking of bouncing back, congratulations to Kaitlyn Clark and the Fever. They just beat the Atlanta Dream not too long ago, maybe about 20 minutes ago. 91-84 was the final score.

Aliyah Boston had an eruption. 27 points, 13 rebounds. It was probably her best game of the season.

And the person that everybody cares about? Kaitlyn Clark had a poor game. 7 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds. One of six from downtown to go along with 7 turnovers.

7 turnovers, excuse me. Ouch. Ouch. That's an ugly game. That's a bad one.

You know what's more important? She spoke today. Kaitlyn Clark was not happy. Most times, she's fine.

Doesn't give you anything high or low. She's kind of right there in the middle. She wasn't happy about people utilizing her name. Using her in all these conversations about racism and sexism. Kaitlyn Clark told everybody, I'm sick of it.

Listen to what she said earlier. I think it's disappointing. I think everybody in our world deserves the same amount of respect. The women in our league deserve the same amount of respect. People should not be using my name to push those agendas. It's disappointing.

It's not acceptable. This league is a league I grew up admiring and wanting to be a part of. Some of the women in this league were my biggest idols and role models growing up. It helped me want to achieve this moment right here that I get to play in every single night. Just treating every single woman in this league with the same amount of respect is a basic human thing that everybody should do.

Just be a kind person and treat them how you would want to be treated. I think it's very simple. You know, Hickey, it's hard to figure out who the hell she's talking about because I feel like there have been a million parallel conversations when it comes to Kaitlyn Clark. There's not one particular talk or conversation or point.

It just goes in a million directions. Is Kaitlyn Clark the face of the WNBA? Does Kaitlyn Clark belong on the Olympic team? Is Kaitlyn Clark where she is because she's white? Is Kaitlyn Clark the only reason that people watch? There are like 50 million parallel conversations with her.

I'm not even clear what she's talking about because people are just saying everything about her. You're right. It's sad. It's frustrating.

It's annoying, honestly. Can we just talk about basketball? She's not Aaron Rodgers either. She's not putting these thoughts out there or reacting to her. She is saying exactly what an athlete should be saying in her position every time. She's been nothing but gracious and humble and, you know, kind of straight down the middle. And somehow anything she does or anything that revolves around her now, like you said, it's politicized. It's gone way too far.

It's exhausting. That's the strongest statement that I've heard from Kaitlyn Clark, really, about anything. Anything. She pretty much said just, what did Will Smith tell?

Well, she didn't say it in that way. After he smacked Chris Rock. Marco Belletti. Will Smith. Well, who smacked who now?

Will Smith smacked Chris Rock. Right. In my wife's name out your bleeping mouth. Oh, wow. OK. Damn. Wow. After he smacked.

Damn. And he sat down and said it calm. No, he didn't say it calmly. Calmly is a bit strong. It was definitely loud, but it wasn't.

He was sitting. Yes, he was in his chair and his wife was looking at him like, whoa, what are you doing here? Yeah, that was after she gave the look of you're going to let him talk to me like that. So, you know, but then we found out that they they're not even really together, right?

Yes, they have a what do we call it? Complicated relationship, I guess. A situationship.

Yeah, I don't. They they're still married in legalese. They live together, right? That part I don't know. But I would imagine whatever house they have, you could avoid each other for a year if you wanted to.

I bet. Big old house. Although I did see a video during the pandemic where Will Smith wasn't aware that he was being live streamed. And he kind of told her, like, leave me alone. Like, what are you doing? I'm in my personal space and you come in here on a live stream like I'm Will Smith. You're Jada Pinkett. You can't just walk in the room on Instagram live. Like, what are you doing?

I miss that. Well, I'm letting you know it's the house is big, but not that big. I guess she knows where to find them. Well, yeah. I mean, if you want to find the person, I guess.

But if you want to avoid them, I mean, not like the you know, the places that will not you, but the rest of us live in where you can avoid somebody if you tried. What does she want to find him for? To ask him for money in the house? You know, I don't I don't know what their relationship entails. It's open. I think it's open. Right. Would that be classified as open when you're just like not together anymore?

Hickey doesn't. Well, they have an open relationship, right? I was going to say, when you were talking about the pandemic, the one thing I remember is the meme of him like looking there shocked as she's talking about other guys.

Oh, my God. I remember that. Oh, they had an interview. They had an interview together, right?

Yeah. I don't know if it was like cheating or maybe it is open and he's just sitting there like real that way his entire life. She was basically emasculating Will Smith. She's like, yeah, I got I got five boyfriends and his husband over here. And it's like, whoa, Will Smith agreed to sit down. Was that a red table talk? Yeah, I know about it.

I do. I know about it because they make Will Smith look like a schmuck. And now you see why he was so pissed off at Chris Rock.

See, pent up, man. Yeah, he had all that anger. But he smacked one of the greatest comedians ever from Brooklyn.

And a guy from Brooklyn didn't do anything but stand there and try to make a joke. Whoa, I just got smacked by Will Smith. In fairness, I mean, what is Will Smith, three feet taller than Chris Rock? Chris Rock couldn't kick him in the back. I think he was more stunned than anything else.

Did that just happen? He smacked him and he walked away. Kick him. Do something.

He had the he could have swung the microphone at him. And we're not to get into this whole big thing, but who smacks another man? What are we doing? Who walks up to somebody and slaps him? You dishonored my- Is this like the Wild West? Yeah, you dishonored my wife. I challenge you to a duel.

We go in guns blazing high noon. Who the hell slapped somebody? He can't punch him.

That's too much. Well, they would have taken him out of there in cuffs if he punched him. Because he slapped him. And they asked Chris Rock, if I remember correctly, hey, do you want to press charges?

You want to do this? And he's like, I need to just go home. OK, so you got enough composure not to close your fist, but you don't have enough composure to just keep your ass in the seat? Like, I don't know. To me, it just seems a little- Slapping somebody is slapping another grown man is more, isn't that more emasculating and kind of sending a message? Like, it's one, anybody, well, anybody can punch a slap, but there's something special about a slap that's just like, I don't, I don't even think enough of you to ball up my fist. And I'm just going to, it's disrespectful. It's like, I mean, it's not that I'm out here beating people up and stuff. It's like spitting on somebody, right? That's like another level of just like, this is what I think of you. No, no, that's fair.

I mean, if he would have went with the backhand, maybe we could have really kind of taken it to another level. Wow. Wow. Wow. A backhand?

Whoa. Marco, what a violent mind you are. Make me the violent one. I didn't hit nobody. Me and Chris Rock are cool.

We've never met. A backhand? That would have been something. If he backhanded him, they'd have to take him out of handcuffs because it had been the knuckles. Open hand? Open hand is insulting. Backhand with knuckles is like, whoa, that's crazy. That's nuts.

Damn. Anyway, it's the JR sport reshow here on the Infinity Sports Network. They going to push Kaitlyn Clark to this level, right? Is she going to start backhanded and slapping people? That would be something.

I mean, if we get to the point where she takes off like the slipper and hit somebody with the shoe, then we've really crossed the line. They're going to turn her into Ron Artest out there on that court, man. They keep it up. Turn into Ron Artest. Wow. Wow stuff. Leave Kaitlyn Clark alone.

I'm going to get the shirts. Leave Kaitlyn Clark alone. And then people are going to say stuff to me. Why are you so defensive of Kaitlyn Clark? And she is so polarizing. I can't recall anybody being this polarizing for doing what? Nothing.

Being good at basketball? It's a wild world that we live in. I hope that she is mentally tough to deal with all of this crap that people have said so far.

Good luck to her. It's the JR sport reshow on the Infinity Sports Network. Plug in a Hyundai EV and the extraordinary happens.

We talked about Trevor Lawrence and his new contract, $55 million a year. Highest paid quarterback on an average annual basis tied with Joe Burrow.

Wow. I know Tua wants his deal now. And Dak Prescott, he's like, yes, he's rubbing his hands together.

Thank you very much. Jerry Jones, I think he has here. He's probably pulling it out. We just heard from Kaitlyn Clark. She's like, keep my name out your mouth. Not necessarily what she said, but she's just like, man, I wish people would stop utilizing me to push their agendas when it comes to sexism and racism.

Leave me out of it. Talked about Tom Brady being celebrated last night in Foxborough, going into the Patriots Hall of Fame, talked about Luka Doncic. The man needs to stop crying like a baby. His season might end tomorrow. The Falcons get punished for tampering. A fifth round pick and $250,000. Whoop-de-doo. No big deal for signing Kirk Cousins and talking to him early.

None. 855-212-4227. Let's get to the phones before we get ready to roll out. Russell is calling from Idaho. You're on the JR Sportbrief show. Russell, you're live on the radio. I guess Russell got abducted by aliens. I could tell you something that just happened.

Oh, damn it. These Florida Panthers are at it again. They scored another goal. 3-1, the Panthers lead the Edmonton Oilers. They're trying to go up 3-0 in their series. It looks like they're trying to win the Stanley Cup. Yeah, the Stanley Cup and the NBA Finals might be done sooner than later.

Anyway, this is what's going on now. Let's go back in time for the JR Sportbrief show. It's time for this day in sports history. You see, back in those days we had radio and you couldn't see anything and it was primitive and lousy and we liked it. On the JR Sportbrief show.

I wish I was 50 years younger and I'd kick your ass. Hey, it's June 13th, 2024. On this day in 1989, the Detroit Pistons, they swept the Los Angeles Lakers to win the NBA championship. There was no magic hamstring. There's no Byron Scott hamstring.

And so they got another title. This is 1989. Listen to this, courtesy of the NBA. World champs with no Magic Johnson.

If Magic was there, I think things would have been different. Anyway, let's hit the fast forward button. June 13th, 1997. Well, Steve Kerr, well, he did this for the Chicago Bulls. Listen to this, courtesy of Marv Albert on NBC. Checks the clock. Five on the twenty-fifth. Here's Jordan. Did not have the shot. Five seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. The Jazz take a time out. Five seconds remaining in regulation.

The inbound. Kevin Lawson, the pre-coach. The Chicago Bulls have won their fifth championship in the last seven years.

Six. Yeah, how about Michael Jordan trusted a teammate? Happy to be Steve Kerr who won championships with the Bulls and the Spurs five time champion as a player, four time champion as a coach. Like people give Steve Kerr crap. It's like they don't remember when he played.

Maybe they don't. That happened this day in 1997. Let's go to 2012. June 13th, Matt Cain decided to throw a perfect game.

On the ground areas from deep third. And that's a perfect game. And the Giants mobbing Matt Cain on the pitchers now. Matt Cain, the Giants beat Houston 10 to nothing. That was the 22nd perfect game in Major League Baseball history.

He struck out 14 guys in that game. That was courtesy of Comcast Sportsnet. That was 2012. Damn. How's that 12 years ago?

But it is. Hey, how about in 2019? June 13th, we have the conclusion of the NBA Finals. Kawhi Leonard played a basketball game at Kawhi Leonard. Well, he actually won with the Raptors.

Listen. Now they just have to inbound the ball and the celebration will be underway. And it should be a celebration both ways. This is the last time at Oracle Arena. And among this crowd, I'm standing and appreciating what this team has done. Leonard makes it official. Now the Warriors just inbound and that's it. There's a new NBA champion and it's a team from Toronto, Canada. We the North are now we the champions, the Raptors, the 2019 NBA champs. Kawhi Leonard was ecstatic. Can you imagine?

He was screaming at the top of his lungs, jumping for joy. There was no Durant. There was no play. But yeah, they won a championship. Good for Toronto. And then last year that was courtesy of ABC, by the way. Last year, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, they beat the team that's probably going to win the Stanley Cup this year.

This is courtesy of TNT. Congratulations to them. I mean, they went the first time and they were just born and then they went another time.

Yeah, just born. That's what I said. And then they went last year and they won. And dammit, the Panthers, they're going to get their revenge. Well, not against Vegas, but against the Oilers.

A four to one. They were in the second period with about four minutes to go. The Florida Panthers lead four to one. They lead the series two to nothing.

They got about one more period before they take a 3-0 series lead. Looks like the Florida Panthers and the Boston Celtics are going to be our champions when it comes down to the NBA and the NHL. Some wild stuff here. Wild stuff. Hickey, I don't even need to watch the end of this game.

It's pretty much done already. We've had both conference finals in the NBA V3L. We got the finals now 3-0 and about to have the Stanley Cup final V3L. Wows us. Yeah. Can't make this stuff up. You just got to enjoy it. Anyway, had a fun show, Hickey.

That was fun. Listen, I learned a fact today that crickets can somehow fly 18 stories in the air. It's a grasshopper. Oh, what is it? My apologies.

No, we got to find out quickly. Is it the same thing? Maybe crickets can't fly grasshoppers? Is a cricket a grasshopper? Crickets and grasshoppers are both insects. They are not the same.

Oh, my apologies. We learned a grasshopper can fly 18 stories. Maybe the cricket can. I don't know.

Now you got me thinking. Crickets fly. No, come on.

Don't ask me no more. Some species can fly while others can't. There we go.

Look at this. It sucks for the ones that are on the ground. They just get eaten alive by, I guess, frogs and stuff. Sucks for them. Not fun. Anyway, it sucks for the Dallas Mavericks.

It sucks for the Edmonton Oilers. Your seasons are about to be done like this show. The JR Sportbree Show here on the Infinity Sports Network is coming to a close. I'll be back with you tomorrow 6 p.m. Eastern, 3 Pacific. Hickey, you going to be back Monday? Monday.

That is right. Good. Good. Have fun. Have a great weekend. All right. The JR Sportbree Show here on the Infinity Sports Network is over. Thank you to Avery Johnson, the little, little general for joining us.

OK? NBA champ, coach, all that good stuff. And thank you to you for listening. There's no show without you. So if nobody told you thank you today, I did. Thank you so much. You can find me online at JR Sportbree. Don't move here on the Infinity Sports Network.
