Show #2 is in the books.
“The Knee Jerks: WTF? With Eno & Al” — the new online radio version, is available for download.
Every Monday night at 11 p.m. ET LIVE, I talk sports with Big Al of The Wayne Fontes Experience.
In case you missed it last night, here are some highlights:
On Chuck Daly:
Big Al: “Chuck Daly, in a way, ruined the NBA…he caused rules changes.”
Eno: “Daly had all the credentials to be a Pistons coach in 1983, which were none!”
Eno: “He was the first NBA coach who really put it out there that this is a player’s league.”
Big Al: “He wasn’t a great Xs and Os guy, like Larry Brown, but he could manage people.”
Eno: “I remember when Chuck replaced Bill Laimbeer in the 1990 Finals with William Bedford for a few minutes in Game Three. I thought, ‘Wow, what a message.’”
Big Al: “His death hit me hard.”
On the Red Wings-Ducks:
Big Al: “If the Red Wings keep this up, the Ducks don’t have a chance.”
Eno: “Brian Rafalski hasn’t played a minute in this series, and Kris Draper hasn’t played a minute in the playoffs, yet here they are, on the verge of going back to the conference finals.”
Big Al: (on the recall of Darren McCarty) “I don’t think he deserves to be on a playoff roster.”
Eno: (on McCarty) “The Wings don’t want anything weird to happen, and if Darren’s in there, maybe something weird won’t happen.”
On the Tigers:
Eno: (on Dontrelle Willis’s return) “We don’t know how that’s going to go. It could either go sideways again or be a great story.”
Big Al: (on roster moves) “I think Nate Robertson might be in trouble. He never pitches. He’s a $7-plus million mop-up man.”
To make it even easier, here’s last night’s broadcast. (Windows Media Player will open and start playing the show)
