When it was all <Speech_Male> over and <Speech_Male> how about two hundred and fifty <Speech_Male> four points three <Speech_Male> years before the <Speech_Male> three anyway <Speech_Male> it was a fantastic <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> night basketball <Speech_Male> and <SpeakerChange> mike and <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> i were privileged <Speech_Male> to be there <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and me <SpeakerChange> in the <Speech_Male> stands as i <Speech_Male> mentioned <Speech_Male> the stands. <Speech_Male> But you weren't in <Speech_Male> harm's way the way <Speech_Male> ryan and i were down <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> it really wasn't <Speech_Male> nice. Run the knicks <Speech_Male> gut on this season <Speech_Male> and they really did <Speech_Male> play over their heads <Speech_Male> especially down the stretch <Speech_Male> when they got to forty <Speech_Male> one and thirty one <Speech_Male> the same record <Speech_Male> as the hawks <Speech_Male> but got the number <Speech_Male> four seed in the conference <Speech_Male> on tiebreakers <Speech_Male> but as <Speech_Male> i watched trae <Speech_Male> young the fourth <Speech_Male> quarter last night <Speech_Male> all the way until <Speech_Male> that final bow. <Speech_Male> It occurred to me <Speech_Male> that in the whole <Speech_Male> history of the new <Speech_Male> york knicks the <Speech_Male> last time <Speech_Male> they had a point guard <Speech_Male> even <SpeakerChange> close <Silence> to being. This talented <Speech_Male> was <Speech_Male> walt. Clyde <Speech_Male> frazier. <Speech_Male> Clyde was cooler <Speech_Male> than trae young and <Silence> bigger and stronger <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> trae young doesn't just <Speech_Male> play he <Speech_Male> styles to <Speech_Male> the knicks. Didn't <Speech_Male> have anybody to <Speech_Male> go up against him <Speech_Male> now. They haven't had <Speech_Male> anybody like him <Speech_Male> in half a century <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> clyde himself might <Speech_Male> say there. He was <Speech_Male> styling and beguile <Speech_Male> to the end <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> while <SpeakerChange> the knicks were <Speech_Music_Male> dying. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> You know you're olympics <Speech_Male> may be in trouble <Speech_Music_Male> when ten thousand <Speech_Music_Male> of your volunteers <Speech_Music_Male> dropout <Speech_Male> well. <Speech_Male> That's what's happened to the <Speech_Male> tokyo games. Which <Speech_Male> are now just fifty <Speech_Male> days away. <Speech_Male> Ten thousand <Speech_Male> of the eighty <Speech_Male> thousand unpaid volunteers <Speech_Male> have now indicated. <Speech_Male> They won't show <Speech_Male> up and <Speech_Male> you can't really blame them. <Speech_Male> Japan <Speech_Male> has only about three <Speech_Male> percent of its population <Speech_Male> vaccinated <Speech_Male> against covid nineteen <Speech_Male> and those volunteers <Speech_Male> aren't likely <Speech_Male> to be amongst the ones <Speech_Male> vaccinated. Come the <Speech_Male> games never. <Speech_Male> Before has an olympics <Speech_Male> teetered into <Speech_Male> its opening ceremonies <Speech_Male> with more doubt <Speech_Male> confusion. <Speech_Male> And worry <Speech_Male> the organizers.
