COMMENTARY: Work as a team to keep Northeast Wisconsin strong

Greetings, everyone, and thank you for watching. I hope you have been able to enjoy some of this beautiful Wisconsin summer. John Wooden, one of the most successful basketball coaches in history, spanning 40 years of high school and college coaching, where his teams won 80% of the time and where his UCLA Bruins won 10 NCAA national championships, wrote about team spirit in his book called "Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success." It’s a book I highly recommend for you and your children to read. He discusses the building blocks necessary for success. He defines team spirit as a genuine consideration for others. An eagerness to sacrifice personal interests of glory for the welfare of others.

Is Giannis Antetokounmpo the Best Player in NBA After Historic Playoff Run?

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been one of the most unique and dominant players to take the NBA by storm in the past few years. But, despite winning the NBA MVP award two years in a row, being a five-time all-star, and just winning the 2021 NBA finals there are still many NBA fans who aren't putting Giannis Antetokounmpo in the same conversations as the all-time greats like Lebron James and Kevin Durant. After winning the NBA finals I thought that fans would finally give Giannis Antetokounmpo the credit he deserves, but there are still many people saying that he didn't deserve it and only won because of injuries. Today we take a deep dive into why Giannis Antetokounmpo is debatably the best player in the NBA and where he ranks all time, and the stats and facts give us a very interesting answer to this question. Hope you all enjoy this one!

Earlier in the day, Murphy admits to reporters that the situation has been "kind of a pox on both houses, us and Aaron."
