When Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri was in the red chair, George asked him how he was able to turn the once-fumbling basketball team around.

"You come in and start to preach something different," he said. "You have to start instilling some of the things you believe in. I believe in passion, I believe in honesty, I believe in working hard and giving it your best. I don't believe in excuses."

George then asked Ujiri about one of the traditional explanations for the team's middling fortunes: the difficulty of attracting top U.S. talent to a cold city in another country.

"To me, that's... can I say crap on your show?"
