Another life I would be staying.
-- the next game tonight.
Then go to Orlando -- NBA all star weekend.
But these -- I've got a few other things -- up like.
I would add new -- start a year or five years in sadly insanity by the way sweeping the nation at -- the president was referring to.
He -- next even -- Obama cannot escape and chooses not to.
We have to remember it was just a few months ago when all we talked about especially terribly -- -- the NBA -- threatening the entire season but thanks partly to the New York Knicks superstar Jeremy -- Ratings and revenue through the roof one of the most unique stories I can remember in my.
In my lifetime but I'm gonna go over my head -- this however it last night he had his first experience as human being struggling against the best team -- basketball the Miami Heat.
Eight points three assists eight turnovers his team lost big LeBron James was covered him for a little while that was a little problematic.
So -- -- -- color now says thank you very much in fifteen games what has he done to the sports world one put it in perspective.
Where you are you have these magazine a big and in the sports world it's I I think it's better than -- sports or because you know what it really speaks the underdog everybody's desire.
To some day you know what prove that they can do it and he -- guy that's almost cut think that the he was praying to god and by the way here is now.
Talking with Tim Tebow and that -- not get cut and all of a sudden look at these magazine look at this so so for the for only the thirteenth time in the history of a Sports Illustrated back to back issues.
With Jeremy -- on the cover and this stunned me.
Broadcasting in case.
Ball as about the -- to do that you know and and they made a deal here in New York City and by -- on K and Elizabeth Smart got married and that's good but this.
-- -- -- -- These are very nice did you not let the biggest sports person in the world would she is crazy this -- -- -- this.
How do you explain -- -- -- every effort I want to back in the sudden.
It politics is nice for how to explain the insanity while he's also playing in New York City with the biggest media market in the country right.
And then next haven't had a lot of winds and a really long time even I know that's I'm glad they finally -- went.
The actual one cents it was reported that he talked to Tim Tebow and the Jeremy Lin is a Christian like Tim Tebow what I find so interesting is the media.
Does not want people to know that this kid who is on fire.
Is a Christian what are you talking -- -- David Brooks from the New York Times wrote a column and and basically goes after and a demeaning life and religion -- more complicated than sports and went on and on to talk about well.
You know what don't get your hopes up but because life is more real than religion.
They always have to do this when there's a religious.
Did you pick this -- do you think -- is way off base and like believe the show what do you think.
I am I had trouble of some pretty good -- I don't like no other parents are you don't bode didn't if you can if you can let me speak -- number one idea of -- Meeting with Tebow I mean we're a fly on the wall during that conversation.
I would fall off the wall okay but I don't conspicuous right now and it's been rampant about that are now where did it get every -- -- I married her most unique in its story in your lifetime Bryant.
This is the most unique story in your lifetime what kind of a lifetime do you the very simple like you -- But yeah.
It's amazing what -- you know I don't watch the NBA and you know why and -- I'm -- -- -- because it's a big -- against short people.
I would watch yes I would watch a sport that doesn't allow me to play -- not.
Not since -- -- -- are gonna let us go to mugs and look at a fairly well that's the except -- -- Don't know I don't know exactly know what I've always.
I'm always impressed that how many -- people can really -- -- I mean.
Obviously Brian and I love basketball and I couldn't believe my -- I would say this jet is if you encapsulate last says every element of sports he -- goes beyond the -- -- will -- Underdog thing.
He had the mail at tapes in high school to try to get a college I did this same thing but it wasn't from bass behind -- -- -- -- -- -- that is -- that could really get -- I.
That's exactly what I was like yeah.
Got went and did pretty MBA it's good for the next good the whole story of different kids out yet it on the bench because you'll get a chance to get in when he needs -- -- little -- for media hype.
Okay well and I thought I get sales of 27% for the next and now this number one team like forgetting all the Jersey or not -- -- on camera I.
-- So did not.
I think that Tim Tebow and Jeremy -- have done more.
For the christianity.
-- Then then cardinal now cardinal go oh please that's very good question I really -- -- there.
No right of course I I'm not -- -- -- but I don't think the Dolan was doing much anywhere I agree it had a loser argument that you -- that.
They haven't let me get sick and just I care about imports ever I think that it's great for Christie and I hope that more young men and this is where I guess -- -- -- -- -- Brooke I want.
I thought the brooks' column was about how young men compete at the same time can love gardeners -- in the god has bigger -- and even the most fanatic.
Yeah potential liberal -- I think it's about time no it's about they're not this has had trouble getting that out of the mix and that's how I undo that I didn't know the best by the way how do you know in the controls manager when they keep saying the -- rap crap yet at a fantastic.
