Grant Hill newest member of the LA Clippers. You're looking at the Lakers and Knicks heat and I'm sure. That you got a phone conference Steve Nash and -- body you know read and -- So why the Clippers. Well you know -- -- could -- Like you know certainly I think last season there was tremendous. Excitement. And LA with bringing Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups and you know make it just sit around -- -- also losing to a very hot Spurs team and I think some of the additions that that they brought in. You know Lamar Odom Jamal Crawford. Getting Chauncey Beck who was hurt most of this season. This -- while this this is an exciting time and they took a big step back this year. And hopefully. Hopefully this year with the new additions with the with the core from an issue we can we could pick another big step. On the -- that -- and I full page ad in the Arizona Republic thanking the fans how hard was it relief. Well it's always hard you know I enjoyed my time at Phoenix and I thought initially -- Disco bit for two years and retire and -- -- -- play five seasons and great memories great times we didn't. We didn't ultimately accomplish what we wanted to continue winning a championship. But certainly it was -- knew they were great memories and yeah I mean it is never easy just to leave him in transition and up group but it. You know I'm excited about being in LA and being a part of this team and playing -- some of these great help to players. Turning forty in October. He's got a little talent has Vinny -- on the road been able to lay out for you what exactly -- -- gonna look like. Yeah and we've talked in Vivian. Had serious problems -- me a lot the last week or so and so he he. I think having depth. Is important if you look at any team that has been successful in team that's won championships are made of four in the playoffs being able to. Call you know call upon. 910 guys. Different. It's different points throughout the season and the playoffs and certainly I think we've we have good depth. I think we have good guys who who are gonna wanna win who wanna you know wanna go out and -- at all into the team and it was best for the team. And we have versatility you know we can Goldsberry we can go small we can we get to a number of staying so. You know we just we got all the ingredients now I know he's gonna get in the gym and collectively. Work together. And figure it out and hopefully what it's all said and done. We can accomplish something really special. You've had some issues with your wheels and I'd like your feedback I've been reading so much about this lately it and it enrichment procedure -- went over to Jeremy did you did you actually go to Germany as well. It. What can -- that a little bit that I've had four knee surgeries and and I've been reading about it but I would love to hear your take it and he's actually gone through it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Pretend to understand more of foot and ankle Garnett and the guys go. You know humble and do extra with it when it comes ankle split not -- the reality results -- a really good before I went. Just went over there and it's just basically. Taking your blood spinning it. An and I guess injecting it back into. Into the -- wherever you have problems so. You know it it seemed to work well for media and -- talked with Kobe and other athletes who started and if so yeah it was cool are you honestly. I don't feel really good before it went so it was. Always if he did it feel positive deal Kolb went away. I think about it and it -- Just feel like it's a very as the -- as soon -- -- dependency confused scared of Beatles and but. But it's been effective and and they do it in the states do they do it in the states and -- PRP which I think you. Is even very similar or exactly what would this gentleman does and he just you don't go -- Germany had tremendous success and he was doing sort of came up with the protocol also. Going to we're going to would definitely benefit but it there are places in the states and sort of becoming popular and anyway I try to. Feeling good before I'll feel good after so. -- it was a it was all good. Grant Hill newest member of the LA Clippers. Back in 2000. You're gonna be on the Olympic team I seem to remember you being a foot and ankle guy that the ankle on the way you competing. Had -- any doubt that about not having the opportunity with the Olympics coming up. On the mr. out of 2000 I played on the nine sixteenths plus I didn't get a -- -- I -- I was the youngest on the team with with Barkley and Malone and Shaq and penny and so we read we had a fun time and it would have been you know it would be great fit to competing in Sydney. But of course I did get hurt and and so she. Misfortunes. I do sort of understand where these guys taught in terms of obviously changed and things are a little bit different than 96. You know we've we've pretty much -- -- know who gonna win and kind of just took care of of the competition. That's pretty funny. Nobody on the team wanted to be the leading score in those games in the Olympic in the beginning because over the -- score ended up having to be drug tested. So if you if you watch those -- And no reason for that because the drug testing process and you'd be there for two hours after the game and so nobody wanted to be there and just you know I have to go through that whole process so. If you watch those games and watch the highlights at -- games everyone's been super unselfish basketball. -- -- want to -- the. I you're gonna say is that they like the leading scorer had a -- everyone on the team didn't help. And to do so that was -- -- and through the rest of the world has caught up this great competition out there and so it should be exciting and I think you know Spain and Argentina are are certainly. Very capable. Let us confidence and our guys have confidence to coach Gary. But I would like to -- who -- who will be watching. What is it about coach K and his ability to communicate with the players. That. You know all of these guys separately they're the best at what they do how -- he bring them all together. So they'd play unselfishly at the level they do to try to win filled. Yeah method to think that this is the genius coach -- and sort of plus all the Saber. There are a couple of reasons one. You know his ability to connect and he's a relationship guy -- -- invest time. In relationships and I think he has a special relationship with each one of those guys. Certainly most of those guys have played four before either back in 08 Beijing -- 2010. In in this spot and and Turkey. The world championships so. He he you know he took a lot of time giving the Bruins players spitting you know didn't know what was it makes them tick. And and and it can also I think really just giving people to buy into a commentary. You know that's that's sort of his genius and his ability to do you have we figure. He's a great leader who just happens to coach basketball. And so. I think he's had a profound effect on all those guys and I think you talked all those guys individually they're also very. That they've they've enjoyed you know playing with them get to know and so. You know unfortunately you know. We have to. Play against those guys yesterday and had experience and you know so I've -- You know compete against most of those guys and and certainly that's no fun but I'm glad that they got a chance to experience. You know small scale when I got to where I got to experience the culture for years. I believe Steve Bush -- -- Chris Collins are both assistants for coach K on the Olympic team are either one of those guys ever gonna take a head job in college and and leaving Duke now. The damage that's been the dollar question you know they've been there for awhile at Duke and I think I think both of them are really capable. I think they'll be really good coaches. At the program you know -- program for them. In the future but -- not saying hey you know you you went to school would do given chances to be there. Probably -- supporting your program learned from the master himself. And I have a chance every four years two years to to do some international coaching. You know they're out there sort of lead the practice you know with -- abroad and -- be and yeah some of the great players in the NBA and so I'm sure that there. I enjoyed it there and continuing to grow and learn just -- giving themselves ready for when they have their own program someday. You've got a two year deal for the clipped her. Do you plan on for killing both years. I don't know I've been year -- year for the last five years so. We'll just we'll just see how that plays. If -- if for some reason Clippers win the NBA title. You ride off into the sun that. It -- an NBA title come back for another. That. You're gonna be do and then the year by year thing for a long time a -- so you're gonna measure grabs. If some level what let's say look at some point you gotta put it you know got to put into his development saying you know you -- you for the last. Italy for the last five. But it's been onto middle and then you -- -- anybody there you go there and an international question that I'm getting you got your slipped a little -- I -- -- try. Heard a little earlier that you weren't you're commenting on mister Patrick -- a little overweight. Real yeah. Pretty totally set you up -- me. I'm not -- if you go about all the blown up there -- new people new logo on a damp Patrick -- -- I mean he's really killing themselves. So it's wrong on so many levels and it even more wrong because I went to Maryland. And you went to Duke in the entire time I was in school we never beat -- and now you're busting my chops. Say this I don't know when you were at Maryland but I you know everyone talks about -- Duke Maryland robbery. No I yeah I know I don't really remember. I don't remember vividly as it was just little things you pad his stats when I was when I was at Duke but now I guess is supposed to be a robbery. Well times change. You know we can be friends after the. Yeah I did -- I said I would do early will. Grant has great talking thanks for non. You threw me under the bus in new. -- you do nobody watches the show grant -- -- watched the end jumper. You heard bats of the union attorneys -- really is really watching the show he would know that I did not call dance. -- -- -- This is this is this becoming a complete and mitigated that now I've called -- stat now I'm calling Graham a liar. What else what else is gonna happen I -- today. We ate breakfast.
