And recrimination and Cleveland's you can see LeBron James chose Miami of course now Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is calling him disloyal cowardly even.
Does he have a point or did James simply make a Smart business decision himself.
And his brand and what about that show last night let's ask.
The -- no shows better -- anybody -- -- media and entertainment analyst Peter go work joining us from LA home of the current of course NBA -- what's the name of that team -- I forgot.
Well we'll go.
Go beyond that one for -- -- now Peter what do you think of the show I I thought it could have been a lot better.
-- -- matter it's gonna make up big splash at the biggest rating of the night.
The biggest non NFL rating for ESP and there -- a lot of folks and their eyes and ears glued to that -- and there was a reason.
This was the big cone -- the guy that could change the basketball future for any city right now -- not that I don't have money I don't.
Very often disagree -- -- these things is you know a lot more about production value but I didn't think it looked good as far as television quality and I'm wondering if that's because.
ESPN gave up all production rights to LR MR LeBron -- firm.
The story is -- It could've been -- to the bottom of a Coke bottle the store is getting everybody wanted to find out how the drama -- -- why the drama.
-- occurred what -- the basis for the decision.
That's what they -- -- talented and I understand my fiance and hear me out because what EST ESPN gave up all of their money rights right I mean -- they seated all the control over their ads to this company LR MR which by the way gave the money away to charity.
Good for -- that's -- But ESPN's only interest in this was bringing eyeballs they want to be eyeballs to -- ESPN.
But a lot of new eyeballs did come in and watch last night but then said she did production value was not that great.
Maybe I won't tune -- ESPN anymore after seeing if that's the best they can do.
What do you think of that possibility.
Well checkbook journalism you can call it that -- really -- -- hucksters and mark carnival -- But at the end of the day it's about getting eyeballs to watch it and I think when you -- events like that the production values in the event it's not enough.
Frost and obviously one time that's what you guys I'm agreeing with you but just I'm agreeing with you for that -- -- clearly the -- -- For that one event but having looked at the production value of that event may be some of the new eyeballs -- ESPN's said.
-- if this is the quality of ESPN I'm not a regular customer.
Yeah about -- -- the event business in this world you know that better than anybody and we're always looking for the event on making the event and I think ESPN had.
-- go along with -- because it was the kind of thing that happens infrequently so that they big gamble.
I know whether or not you think it was better journalism -- great production value I think it's a pretty crappy films.
That allows -- production value of the story was great made a lot of money.
The colts offense that's the bottom -- but again.
I just think that that was a one time event it did very well quickly by the way on -- comments of this guy the cavaliers guy.
What do you think about that -- to me it seems kind of -- he's free to fire these guys whenever they're contract is up but they're not supposed to do -- -- Gimme a break Williams guys in business and it you'll -- this -- 45 year old kid at once supported product the best market like he gave us seven great he has a complete loyalty and build himself from the ground up.
He has a right to put that market product in the best marketplace in the best shelves and think about the future and it's a team sport.
So we want to surround himself with the kind of people that would help build out legacy and I think -- -- -- job.
Our right and by the way Peter is not just make -- movie maker also owns some sports businesses -- -- -- knows where every speech Peter go over.
Great to see -- Peter have a wonderful weekend.
