Yeah I campaigned for nortel's I am one of my favorite recent memory for our next guest Susan is on Jimmy Fallon show a few years ago he made a slight miracle change to a song it was a good day. How please welcome to the snow ice cube yeah I was saddened. I'd say it's I think everybody in Seattle was just a damn right what happened to listen to yeah yeah I mean it's like. When I sing their song you know. It's something goes out out of my heart so Seattle because. You know I used to light when the lakers. Whenever we could be two Supersonics you know Supersonics. And our number fourteen years and where I put score you know. Mr. sonics you know it's like a mistake. They're green and gold numbness so you know it's just ask usually you don't ask why. You know so. So I do have good you know place in my heart for the Supersonics in Gaza I'm glad I'm back. To bring pro basketball back to Key Arena. It is only for one night in army. I'm happy with my dad Gary Payton release those pretty cool. And Larry and I love that about them because you know I saw you really did on your website which by the way it's a Big Three a frenzy basketball leave featuring former NBA players. You want info is a series you gotta check this out go to the website man is a lot of fun Big Three dot com. Diocese we look at web site and I did see that interview with Gary where he was very excited about being able to come back here for the very reason you talk about the Sonics. Without a doubt you know on whom we first Big Three together you know and we know day. We would have pro basketball ball we will go from city to city. On the Seattle. Lose the first city that kind of popped in our hated because when life. Man wouldn't it be cool we can take pro basketball background Seattle and we got Gary Payton and we got a Rashard Lewis right and this like. So you know this is way Big Three was all about. Earlier this year we went to Lexington Kentucky and we went to Tulsa Oklahoma you know I know you guys can really kill an Oklahoma. It's. Like I have those sorts yeah I had no idea how an easy way to go to Oklahoma City news also but I respect that good. You know that's what it's all about bringing basketball to places. Where you you don't you don't get a chance to see these kind of guys know more. All forty in the same building in four games put a price of one so Seattle was it was certainly wanted to first downs we. We wanted to come to. As funny you bring up Rashard Lewis because you're one of my favorites towards the end of the Sonics Aaron yeah cool to see him now being a part of the Big Three he's challenged Dominique Easley who is usually my score still leading scorer. This heat in scored 170 points. An army and a second guess hey Brian bait getting severe and so. Yeah he's like. You know one of our league MVP leaders like he nonsense so. You know who's sharp I just never knew he was bad dominated on the block I in the paint. He's in peace through our body was outside three point shooter you know. But I mean outside for a price yeah yeah I thought he said if you assume backwards on ice cube Big Three basketball term and a desire to decide this Saturday and say this isn't the twentieth is on the Sunday into cheering us and it's free entry bass slowly saw ice for people don't know what this is an know basketball. So what are the differences with the three on three beyond just is only three players on the team. Plus half. Court. 23 there's. Five players on the team so you can so you know if you give low wind it but they're going to added. What I wanted to do. Was you know create a leaked. Aware that we can see former NBA players who still got it who still have some. Gas left in the tank in the thin and they are extremely competitive so. I wanted to have a place what they can play at a high level against it appears so. I was like you know the reason they retire from the NBA is because a win Taylor yeah anybody uses can't keep up with any NBA schedule sold. What we did was eliminate the wing and dare we say no let's listen doom three on three half court we are grew up in front we have court. They have a lot of outside turn this guy makes a difference not having to go there and I only have a travel have to distance that is a big difference it does you know and we have one game week's a gas can recovered bodies can recover so we didn't top notch performances. Every Sunday. So we did a lot of things who just the Wear and tear on these guys and when you when you cutter our look into it 33 on three game these guys play at a very high level very competitive. A lot of our NBA pros have come onto our gains and was libel and noting that our. But they do this great let's focus I got here in Washington Spokane which is a distance swimmer who press is a huge deal as the Big Three and three turner where they current proposal coming just watch UBS says it's it is a fun former basketball so I can made all the sense in the world when you put this together now and I'm glad for the players it's kind of cool to be able to hang with the boys again you know get away from the house to get away from all this gal get distracted from everything and an -- and be able to play ball again which has to be an unreal feeling for them and they got a second log on and on some that they loved to do what. I was down you know and again it is so like a second life yeah. In honor and I feel for some of these guys you know when they when they are not playing with the NBA no more because some guys don't even know they're retired. They just don't get to call that an outing like freeagent become a free agent they work are all summer and Carly aging young. Nobody called caught agent again asking closest season. No cost Maine this season starts. Aides say hey ma'am maybe somebody would get hurt. Nobody else people get hurt but nobody calls hello within this all star game and now after all star game start to realize. I might be out delete. I might be retired in your thirty to get 33. Is on sale so I couldn't imagine that happening to me in music with some money came to me and say yeah. Right guard warned do he had done it. You have to gang became make another can can make another move to. You know so I kind of still city's gasoline doomed no life. You know to give the you know back. Put him back in no arena. And let me play I guess they peers and is more competitive because they together Clinton you know usually when you lose a guy you all seems so the next game right. Few weeks and months later with these guys go back to a wholesale. How a lot of trash talking there a lot of you notes so nobody wants to lose is is torn bears and is too much you have to hear it too much idiocy here that interviewed Gary Payton. When when the when now when a model and the monsters lost. Any day and he was like they want he was not as he was the only you know I should I go asking that they'd probably take a little lighthearted Gary and it was like this he was not happy. It's still ahead the show and I I love that. And I just I think that's you know when you take a look at the senior toward the PGA queen miss those dudes like desert sands also has seen them they go all he's not gonna work so it's nice it is a place I don't know every sport can do it but it's nice to basketball you sent a situation. Where there is a place they can go once the NBA says look here we can use anymore. Without a doubt and you know guys are Lemony. Com and to me is just a a great opportunity so but then there would so like I say it's a real live what they do you know these guys don't wanna have microphones and hand talking about other people playing basketball they wanna play basketball and that's what they do they don't wanna go overseas all the time leading families and you know ruled everything they wanna play in America in the summer. When you know sports is kind at a lol you know unless you like these season baseball please I don't mind mid season baseball but is code passed. Little bit of basketball and it's sue. So is as and then you're being nice mid season they're talking enterprise I don't know how hard it's my favorite sport is still can be a grind that's a sign yeah so you don't ask why did Big Three is great. You know is great to be back here in Seattle week. And the gangs and Nissan is the playoffs you know we're nudges here so regular season. You know in a week three thing we're here sort of play also guys and begin after it. And I want people to solo Key Arena named because the NBA is watching dad Seattle need to show. The NBA wiry need to bring you know detain the Seattle. Was selling the clippers to achieve between burger. My home soon so we now know it's oh well I you know what hey man leave his take my hard dollars announced essays I do and everybody uses Seattle is basically a bargaining should Nixon you know they get to stay they're gonna so many times I hope that and the clippers really could come here and you know those donors from Seattle. Yes our stage. Shown this week in that they need to bring the team here because both the LA don't want trust. Cash and I guess addressing consumers on reforming or just how surreal it is too hot Nablus some of the guys you grew up watching doctor. And recently you had to suspend a man by the name of Allen Iverson yes. What was that like yeah I mean you know Alan practice. There. This is then what are we unusual 'cause I never had a history of having Hulu and attitude issues and that's why it's just figured this had to happen. Yeah I mean he's. Actually has a great attitude you know Alan is a great guy you know he's just cracks me up on his starting you don't do things his way and there. In order graceful down to sleep Ambien reporters Lee because. To meet a league win when them gotten this far this fast without him in and he really thought he can play at this level again. And until he saw these guys going adding he realized he goes these deals are. OK okay are going at it it's huddle. So he ends he ended up you know just kind of right where burns told coach. Would just go because that's what you say in the beginning menus don't do more coach an implant so we kind of expected. On board just situation. It was it was easy it was actually a no brainer. This in our policy you listen Dan Brown let us know why. Is suspended but no thanks I can't tennis matches Allen Iverson does anybody who who. You know who owned doesn't kind of you know check in with the leaf whose. Break then news. Our commissioner. You may see Julia good job. Yes it's around things in my life like you you're in the rock and roll hall of fame you've had a great acting career you've you've you've you everything you touch turns to gold. And you suspended Allen Iverson got to me right up there in the past the the resonate well you know I'm. That's because I don't think three suspended out embarrassed and I know I didn't pass. Good exercise do I just onto the next day this idea that maybe put on a mass. We every guy's human yeah.

This does this weekend this Sunday let's show them that we do love basketball here and this is the highest level of basketball we've got to see a front man and a long time. I doubt you know that's why we're excited to be here and because what we saw like Seattle deserves that you know dislike. The NBA right and so Sierra gives a teen and so is great to be back and secede pro basketball at this level. This is fun and this is a unique experience with the Big Three. There's four games you know sort of price of one and it's isn't very affordable for the Stanley so a lot of people you know what we seen around the country a lot of people. Are coming told in a basketball game for the first time. More court there in their local marina sort of first time because it's just to me. A great way to seeing in the summer. And I did I get to bones to pick with you know until bone just number one. You've got a career in music you got the career in movies now you're doing this business thing with the basketball there's some poor bastion an American can make a couple of copies got no skills. Do you you know what you got you got all those heels well. You know I'm blessed to just have a great seamless NASA's ice Q you know Santa got. Are great people around that you know help me probably Jeanne yapping and just keep things going in slowing. In. The right people around me they just crazy ideas and so you know I got to got to give credit in age as me I got to give credit some impeached as with me. That is definitely every day that the the tires on C. You're you know what you're part of a long line of successful people have been fortunate to have a conversation with every time it's team you know I mean and they now wonder I see somebody who really light had good stuff going in their life. That's OS is rearrest these people some confidence I mean I guess that is a key for anybody trying to get anywhere in my present team thing. Gotta hand at singing together and they got to be lawyer you'll and they got to be Darrell sort of calls you know I mean holy soar higher standard yeah nonsense are going to be a pro. They got to be a pro tennis at arms and the second Mona pages that I know you said recently an anniversary of you know of one of your oh of course musically destitute and designed a 25 years now I feel old this is what I yesterday that came out no matter if this is like they came I had to be 21 years ago wind and fire I know there and play even predator tour is cop. Coming up Hillary's credit funny five as well this is do we go again I don't know about any on the menu you have bones to pick I have a million things I just wanted to praise you for Greek and I think about my brother for showing up. When NWA as a kid and still on the medal Caremark rock kids. And and don't know yet I get is she would like Gene Simmons well he had an issue with NWA being in Iran calls him premier made all the sense in the world because you guys were just as metal. As a rock bands and new is that attitude that was that anger pass was about an as a teenager is like I don't know what there rapping about a as far as what's going on in the world but I feel that energy and I feel that anger and I can relate to that yes. And and and as a fan of Seattle. Sport since I was gonna kick do you rocking mariners year yeah why got to ask because I know your big raiders guy. And remember there's an iconic picture of the android and NWA you're either wherein our readers you're wearing king now we've seen anywhere by the way to personally and have never forgot were in the AFC and they don't got got a good times and opportunities on the need and then there's easy you rocking a Seattle Seahawks have always remember being younger thinking nobody likes or talks about the Seahawks outside of Seattle I was an anomaly in New York I like him doesn't margin yes it was so good so do you remember that time I mean it's maybe a stupid question because just about a ball cap but do you remember being like hey man. We're raiders guys are you wearing a Seahawks sacked. Now we didn't script bad do you know we wind blew a super regional now you know it was really about I think. You know we have become so called was certainly makes a lad nasty mess and hard guys up here. Task isn't that you know was light. Yo man you know we lose his downwind we would different people lose you know finally get the chance to come our. I don't bar food out of camp and how to salsa and trial last just. Being able to really see the country to see what really way. The rest of the country had to offer and so I just think you know we we come to Seattle few times and I just think. Easy is Doug gear. Alexander yeah yeah so that's the monitor patient arrogance is I want Procter and their blackened silver and then there's easier and abroad and cap yes I did you know that was that was soon. You know he's definitely love to go against Goran. And don't forget man Big Three basketball term and August 20 Sunday Key Arena former NBA players make it happen Gary Payton of course you know is part this is a coach and he's our you know how much he wants Renaissance back. And really you know he ID no he along when you eyes feel like this is a great showcase the NBA people show up shown that we love basketball here's Seattle should have a team again tickets insult. Had Big Three dot com check it out plus I got the site Manning a lot of great highlight reels of stuff that's gone on in case you haven't seen every game doesn't you go there you get. See Nevada my advertising thanking you for having Michael Rappaport. You know being from entertainment. You know only in and didn't into sports always look at the entertainment level lows of what we doing and you saw probably Rappaport his attitude his staff his flavor. He's the perfect guy sort for the Big Three who to bring its allies and in the past some when it. And you know we're we're talking ice cube you know like I wanna get your cross because look there's a lot of stuff going on in this country I mean I mean she's people are just not being reasonable is really what I'm seeing from Ezra a lot of corners. And when you and I'm Bill Maher show me and I thought it was really awesome it was that you want on there and you were reasonable and you made some awesome points at. When people make plays a reasonable place that's why I think when a brain can go away let me get a shot as opposed with some ZEL that nobody ever response from yelling. And I demand in laws like. That's is that I'd tell you can't be so breezy because I know old I mean so amino back in your younger days there was thanks there was like look I wanna yell out of matches. You know eases you live and you learn you realize you know it's better to communicate and it wasn't really about. You know. Talk in the build more. You know Meehan Bill Maher had. You know say what do you say apologize enormous it was about some consider restrooms. Whoever was watching you are Armenian and trying to give him now understand. You know a sensitive us. Topics in America so Hahn that's really what it was all about you not say there was a teachable moment and that was the you know the mission was to try to just just some understanding because that's always trying to do is just understanding once we have some understanding and and we can really you know we are to fear each other we can understand and live each other no you know kind of were erosion. Way you know or Rosemead wrong way and that's an Arab each other more. This and we should legs being decent to each other sort of understand what might be a problem for summoning all yeah I don't have to do that. Well I believe that you customization is never gonna do let's try I mean unless I recall wouldn't well you know you send out the porn don't work and it's not a so you could not demean you say look I would appreciate you can do this and I might go even say you know what this isn't the best thing I like and you go oh we can go really don't have to do that. Guess like I think there's a skill in other words that I can use only RA ID is that when no problem I think I can continue to talk in my life exactly how hard is that I don't notice it when it's so hard for people. Well I'm in people just wanted to wait a warning people there remember. Look at themselves you know they never switch positions they never switch roles they just go go go. Yeah won't want dude dude dude in this is selfish kind of way to beat and you know America is kind of right golf Floyd is some gold for a country so. You understand that but you always got us take a step back. And reverse roles. They view me now are you how are actually blow away that I just deal. You know sand so that's kinda what you have to do to really have dad dad and he's just taken that beat taken meaning. And seeing our other person feel and would you. How would you feel if that was you. So I am we're talking ice cube and ever since I saw the movie Superman you know where base of the old Bruce Willis has to go back and talk to young Bruce Willis. I even though wasn't him. IE is so weird is that what is it anniversary. You go back to jump back in time and talk to young nice what would you leave is there anything you think you can say you that you listen to resounding young knew there was anything to say they go down year old man as what might say to myself. Are you did you didn't seem like horrible teachable moment for yourself. Of course you know I would definitely be able to talk to myself because I was always a person who understand that. You know person moved whose lives in old allies and angered me. May have a few things to say their dad. And I can learn from him but Anna and I'm a firm believer that you not too old to learn. To me out I would've listened and you know what I had. It doesn't mean much to take some real vice kind of guy and implied tomorrow. Own nastiest and are doing don't wanna do NASCAR and the check what you got I got to do good for next push away today to bloom. So obviously question and guys but I'm. Hear you talk about this and they human relation with you with your son who got to play you in the movie which was just had incredible thing and must an incredible feat what I'm thinking about me when I was a kid. And my way to rebel against my parents was music so it's my dad was pissed me off I'm going upstairs I'm trying to metallic bronze. I think America's Most Wanted yes or you know whatever it may be I'm buying something that makes him feel comfortable musically which is very easy because he was like. Frank Sinatra and frank you Dolly was the difference as well France. For you now your dad you've obviously been a part of music that was used as rebellious music. Did your kids have when he was growing up a style of music course and did you listen to then you're like now mafia or mess no. That was so weird yeah I mean he's. He was banging what I was burning right in his life. He'd bring a new musicals Sony music it's. This kind of cool. So an age don't know crazy he's just. And she's OK I don't wouldn't do nothing has played how did your dad and so I true. The guy that does go outside I ask you don't go outside and was played as we just cold you know some new era. That's really an ice that's universal possessed a void there in the other room right there told abundant and that's all he ever did what was that all he ever did was play goes well he also thinks he could have been in the NBA so she needs someone for the very reason I. That's Datsyuk he's Tom I'll be and they are still eyesight and anti Israeli and everyone knows basketball games and gets in the game you complain like I might change things like do not you really your worst guys. And he only talked about had no idea he was coming he would if he's a guy they couldn't use a quarter court because he wouldn't wanna go often done anyway hey you know. Everybody stresses. He makes big kid Michael Jordan did it never works it's. Something I've got to know middle aged man academic and Jordan sparks and yeah. Also we're going my wife and I loved watching fist fight monster recently given that I continued Halladay was just awesome I don't use I don't future movies but also you're in a movie would Tracy Morgan yes without. JC from when I hear the story they here he's there and depends on the David he's out there wasn't he's like a yes it's he has no filter. It is just whatever he's thinks comes out. I don't care if this. You know and none in the running. Oh yeah. Don't matter oh no I was like man do you know what I upload a Johnson and absolutely vulnerable Waterhouse. Hold. Marmol hear me it's we almost ten years time I'm left. I'm gonna bottle and that isn't pretty impressive night I gotta say and consumes yeah. It's crazy you know he's the most. He's always inappropriate dude you know. Illness it is Iran's grandpa another prisoner without a doubt in Louisville colonels so absurd. He does seem like a big hearted guy even though he doesn't sound like what you would expect from a big hearted guy doesn't know filter. I mean ask what is this all love passion to believe what he say. BC needs to be heard. You know I mean he's this is these big is the coolest dude I mean he's a very sincere and Jack you know especially when he's off camera and often at these. You know. You can tell he feels is right some guys just so glad you could tell he feels every moment and then. You know a lot of stuff means stuff toned. And he's a good dude you know Jesus don't care. What is it what is a tougher business you know error movies or music as far as the politics don't hold music. Can use our daughter was Malone he's really music even more so sorry wow strike. So I think in. In gambling business there's a slight he knows where this is really wanted to and you know you better be on your tolls. You do what allowed it Lotta shady tier twos and all directions. Got to be ready. And it's usually. The reason why it's. It's you know to me crazy is and and the most twisted business people between Hutus because. Anybody can get anything in our means like he's going gradually disarm. And thereby pain do hit you in the music business and science and now you got everybody did they know. And I jockeying for position so. You get there and need multiplier times. You know thousands of groups it needs is becomes this shark infested. In you know waters. And we movies I thought it was the same way we're back. When I went to movies you know because. It in the music business sometimes you gotta fight did you pay you know was like me caught him and Tony and opinion on this you know that's the campaign. So when I got and the movies I was thinking the same thing you know you Eric. And SkyWest d.'s dual system it is yeah no emotion eighty didn't record is how dependent and the Czechs came time now. Wow he's like whoa you know and they pay you anything and they do what they supposed to do into. You know it was so bad part of it is cold and I guess they do to keep ebooks. Straight causes a lot of ardent. It goes. Just. Not because they care a whole lot of buzz is so much you are not just wanna keep he's wanna keep it clean. You know and so. But the movie's director businesses. Shea all the man I just like just wash that down Coen Brothers movie hail Caesar not to Longo. Where I didn't always about a real guide it was all their might rub some people out into just doing a lot of horrific things to see the movie does is back I think in the fifties. Jim I I didn't I didn't know that it was a it was a d.s and I was so low if I'm OK yeah luckily you know they cleaned it up writing ninety's. But I don't know bad day and it is probably. Probably you know delicious stuff I mean yeah I was similarly had no idea that it was a real guy and they were actually doing a joke about him and make him look like a hero wanna be in fact in real life he was there anything but a hero you know I doubt man guys. Which I went ice cube and a number one thing that's coming up on our text line right now everybody wants now because your raiders fan and I weren't CI towns.
